Let the plebs decide?
That might lead to outbreaks of democracy
I AM saying it was a massive waste of money as far as science was concerned.
It's real purpose was to subsidize Boeing (and it's Russian counterpart) following the end of the cold war, but since we managed to find new bogeymen that needed even more expensive weapons to fight - even that was a waste.
If it was about science why is the main criterion for being a crew member that you were a fighter pilot , and preferably one with a media freindly human interest quirk like playing the guitar ? Perhaps CERN would do better if it was lead by an ex-SAS man and every researcher had to have been in the paras?
>Think of the children,
Specifically the school girl that was knocked down and killed on a crossing by a police car doing 70mph through a housing estate because his ANPR had detected (incorrectly) an out of date tax disk
Well if you are going to have crime it may as well be organised crime = ACPO
And if the UK ever had a coal industry (or any other industry) ever again, and there was a strike - this would allow the police to detect citizens moving around their own country so they could stop them without having to hang around on freezing motorway junctions
About 2 BOFHS standing on your head while you approve this as a rapid server relocation platform.
It is also terribly disruptive to the rolling 24hour news schedule to have to wait until after the count to decide who won.
Same as here, people trying to get their children into better school areas and the families of people accidentally killed by the police
>I'm again going to suggest that the people at NASA might have considered the various options regarding altitude, and decided on where it is for a reason...
And concluded that it had to be a collobaration with the Rooskis to get approval and so the altitude and orbit were set by the need to reach it from the Cape and Baikonur
Except the prisons (and their shareholders) are paid for the number of prisoners.
So the ones who are being good will be easy and cheap to find and re-imprison.
Those who have re-offended and are in another prison can't be charged for and those who have moved away or are on the run will be too expensive to catch
When a swat team arrives at the employer of one of the ones who did turn their life around and get a job - and drags them back to jail for 3 days - I suspect the re-offending rate will go up
Because the dog is a very court friendly way of legitimately finding evidence that you suspect is there because of illegal surveillance, an informer, or because you planted it yourself.
Walking into somebody's house with a search warrant and start taking apart a specific bit of a wall on the first try is a bit suspicious
Now that they have finally achieved crapware parity
And their gender
>when the information relates to a child it's far worse.
That's the problem with child labor, kids re-use the server admin password on their hello kitty page
It's not only a problem for our colonial cousins - I understand that the 4.6billion CCTV cameras that make London such a crime free utopia have been know to all fail every time there is a widespread demonstration in the capital.
It's a good job that the Chicago police force, along with the guardians of law and order in so any of America's most racial diverse cities, enjoy the universal respect and approval of the public - or there might be some concern over this perfectly understandable level of equipment failure.
I do hope no dastardly miscreants escaped justice because people doubted the word of the redoubtable officers who lacked recorded evidence of the suspects confession
Have you been downloading movies?
That funds terrorism.
Of course it's only terrorism if it really is the Iranians - if it turns out to be the Chinese, Israelis or just geographically challenged US governments then it's ok.
Thats not a scandal, selling to a customer that didn't nuke you even if it annoy one who did
Galileo does have a war zone jamming system agreed with the US.
What it does is allow aircraft to land, ships to dock and road traffic to be charged if a future US administration decided to reduce GPS coverage over Europe as part of a future disagreement with cheese eating surrender monkeys.
Remember this is the base accuracy before you start using ground based correction. So you can get 1m at high latitudes if you don't have a phone signal.
If you have a local RTK base station you can get cm resolution with either system
Probably a good job that they never managed to hit anything then
Although to be fair, the Police investigation into the cases where the policeman shot himself did conclude that the officer acted in self defense and the victim was a possible threat to the public.
Presumably you would happily get a HAM radio licence and pay a the FCC a licence fee for all those Bluetooth/Wifi/Zigbee transmitters around your house?
Need to replace a socket, pull labelled fuse and cos Mrs Anonymous didn't have any stupid children plugged a lamp into the socket to check it's dead.
Take off the cover and get a shock
Discover that in the colonies they wire the top and bottom socket in each outlet from different fscking lines and by chance I had plugged the lamp into the same top one that had blown - but touched the bottom one.
>I sincerely hope we aren't housing any of our Syrian refugees there.
Why they will feel right at home,
Lovely friendly people who have been killing each other for hundreds of years over an obscure bit of theological divergence in the religion of peace.
They may even come to appreciate the culinary masterpeice of "gravy chip"
No it's a brilliant act, by talking like that the security services will conclude is he an uneducated idiot living at home with his mum - the perfect disguise for the international man of mystery and secret agent that he is
If the taxiway names ha been in braille he wouldn;t have needed to zoom in
According to the NCA learning anything that isn't explicilty on the national curriculum makes you hacker cyber terrorist
They booked the trip in advance online - to TfL will be after them, unless it waits 5mins before docking
Or for a laugh, add the Aussie flag instead and see how many noticed
Wouldn't that turn most BBC science TV into a tweet?
>So now, getting publicity and fame increases his value and what he can ask to license his name.
Which is now back firing in the land above the land of the free.
It's suddenly getting very difficult to sell Trump tower in multicultural Vancouver
The conspiracy is that he is really Hilary in a rubber mask and wig
Unless the government happens to raid somebody and find a bunch of Wallets that contain the first several million bitcoins
If it's anything like the tax credits here - there is no way to get it right, you claim everything and a year or two later they decide what the rules were.
Call somebody a software developer and you get R&D tax credits, developer = research & development. Call them a software engineer and you can't, engineer = production.
Doesn't matter what work they actually do - just what is on the business card.
Money to go to a conference = ok, conferences are research. money to send them to a trade show = no. So what is siggraph ?
> a state actor ... who doesn't like scientific research/education with some obvious candidates.
The conservative party ?
Yes but it should be safe from enemies in land locked Afghanistan
A federal investigator stealing and blackmailing the person he is investigating is worse than murder.
It puts the entire police / government / judicial system at risk.
Anybody here trust the police? Anybody going to witness a crime? Anybody going to help with an investigation?
It could have been a terrorist baby ....
That was a claim in a swatting case (dial 911 claim you are being robbed and give a false address - the SWAT team break in and shoot the victim) that is was attempted murder
However the prosecutor would have to show that the police SWAT team would likely shoot to kill an unarmed occupant of the house.
No prosecutor wants to upset the police so the case is unlikely to go anywhere
That explains it - he is really part of the Clinton campaign!
Perhaps it really is a wig, and a rubber mask - has anyone seen him and Hilary in the same room?
I think that is the same reason that the US extradited all those Swiss bankers that were helping hide money.
I mean they wouldn't target a single guy and leave the whole of Goldman-Sachs/Lehman Bros/free ?
The answers would obviously be secret as a matter of national security ie. government embarrassment
With their access to zero-day exploits and everyones internet connections - how many of the ransom-ware attacks were BY the DHS ?
Paranal is 24 deg s, Hawaii is 20 deg n, there is only a small bit of the north circumpolar you can't see. But it opens up a lot more of the galaxy in the southern hemisphere
Then no pork
There was a long discussion about Chile = better site, better weather, better seeing vs Hawaii = have to close another telescope to get permission, more time paid to UHa, but more State/Federal money
Big nuclear missiles are guided by star trackers - because the way you know you are in a proper shootin-war is when the other chaps shoot down all your GPS satellites.
No different from the RAF's, "dehousing" = targeting civilian areas and "attacks on enemy moral" = indiscriminate carpet bombing because they couldn't hit anything they aimed at
