When everybody has to replace their keyboards with new ones without the euro symbol
I think it is more likely it will make LCD panels.
Isn't LCD panel manufacture a largely automated commodity business these days?
It's hard to see how that would provide the10,000s jobs with 6figure salaries to justify this level of state incentive
Chinese global way of business.
$8.7bn to Boeing to keep building the 777 in Washington
Except of those 13,000 workers 10,000 are in construction.
And of those construction 'jobs' you count each contracted out person as a job everytime you use them. So every truck movement that closes a road counts the driver, operator, flaggers etc.
So the 10,000 construction jobs are more like 1000 FTE for 1 year.
Luckily those 3000 permanent jobs are all full time Apple product designers being paid $250,000/year - that way it will only take 60years to recoup the $1M for each job from state income tax.
Or another way of looking at it, every resident of the state just paid retail for an iPhone.
The same companies have also pulled all their manufacturing and sales operations in China, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Israel, pretty much everywhere in Africa, S. America etc
In which case wouldn't it be cheaper to just build 100 more rooms so nobody has to share?
rot below the waterline
That's your problem then, you let it get wet.
What if the F35B is a dead end?
The crew will be instructed to hold their arms out to their sides and run up and down the flight deck shouting "vroom". Following an upgrade to the software in 2025 they will also be permitted to shout "bang".
So that's 2000 x 8port switches with the 8th port connected to another 286 switches with their 8th port connected to .....
And they got a really good deal from Ebuyer with free shipping
Remember 'Sink the Bismark' - what if the one hit is on the steering gear and you just steam in circles until they finish you off?
That's not really comparable to modern warships.
Now you just have to take out one network switch and the engine management system isn't able to connect to the license server for the maintenance log and so the engine shuts down
How many F35s were lost to the Taliban in dog fights? Very few compared to the Battle of Britain - thus proving the value of the F35's stealth capability compared to the Hurricane.
If they aren't planning on using the deck for any aircraft they could host Vauxhall Corsas doing donuts
Take off and land ? That could be trickier
Naval air superiority is a vital part of our operations against terrorists in landlocked Afghanistan
Shouldn't it have "Liz - Phil" painted across the front ?
You could just have one sailor and lots of mirrors
Fortunately after Brexit, India will have a cheap 3rd world country to offshore the maintenance to
Perhaps the then Home Secretary should be hauled up for contempt of court for failing to implement this.
But they were democratically elected - so it is really the electorate who are guilty and so the police should now hold all their details
Or if you have everyone's DNA you select which sequence groups you match on to get a fit on your preferred suspect then go to court and have your pet expert witness claim that the 1 in a billion chance of a match implies that there is a 1 in a billion chance that the person is innocent.
The process is simplified if you contract out the DNA matching to a commercial lab and explain to them that the chance of their contract being renewed is proportional to the number of "correct" matches they find
There were a series of cases where the innocent/guilty algorithm was confused by a deep tan.
However requesting that your image is removed now marks you as a "person of interest" so there is a valid policing reason for retaining your image
are frequent prosecutions of personnel for illegally accessing data.
There are frequent statements that "lessons have been learned" for illegally accessing data with very occasional long periods on administrative leave on full pay
Except the 5mins before the arrest of a strangley blood covered suspect for "resisting arrest" will be missing and the cctv of a suspect who died in a cell will have been deleted for privacy reasons
Without complicated Eu rules, quotas and subsidies to administer the farmers are now free to negotiate their own trade with whoever they want - no need for remote bureaucrats in distant
Brussels London telling them what to do
The country that has made the best recovery from the last recession, in fact barely noticed it, is communist China.
All hail chairman May ?
That expensive delayed computer system that hands out all those subsidies that farmers complain about.
Just a simple letter saying - welcome to the 21st century, you now get the same subsidy the last tory lady leader gave the coal mines
These are small boutique stores in city centers.
The lockers would have to go in the back, with the stock.
There is no car park.
tell if it is a legitimate interest is to ask if what they intend to do “is fair”.
And how do you know it's fair ? just ask if it's a legitimate interest !
If I remember ( I've seen the film ), the non-lesbian non-vampire strippers get turned into lesbian vampires, and another stripper has to kill them.
But it's all done in the best posssssible taste
"then I'm better off watching Lesbian Vampire Killers"
Some ambiguity in the title
Is it the vampires themselves that are lesbians or is it the vampire killers in comfortable shoes?
Asking purely in a spirit of academic interest you understand
The bit I don't understand is why they didn't collect location as well.
There are really only a couple of options for location
I was against the Nazis you know
Yes I think most people were
But I wrote a letter !
I think the Italians were - did not finish but then took selfies with the medal winners later
Has the full repercussions of only British "ladies of negotiable affection" been discussed by the house?
It might cause a few of them to have second thoughts about a hard Brexit.
So the equivalent of "the new Bennys" ?
They got silver, it's a podium place.
MATE, THEY ARE WEARING FUCKING NAZI SWASTIKAS. FUCKING NAZI SWASTIKAS. THEY ARE FUCKING NAZIS. No, this isn't name calling or shock labelling by the left.
Perhaps they are just trying to make money on a Broadway Show?
Communism: You have two cows. The government seizes both and provides you with milk. You wait in line for you share of the milk, but it's so long that the milk is sour by the time you get it.
Nazism: You have two cows. The government takes both and shoots you.
Capitalism: You have two cows. You lay one off, and force the other to produce the milk of four cows. You are surprised when she drops dead.
Wall st Capitalism: You have two cows.
You sell three of them to your publicly-listed company, using letters of credit opened by your brother-in-law at the bank, then execute an debt/equity swap with associated general offer so that you get all four cows back, with a tax deduction for keeping five cows.
The milk rights of six cows are transferred via a Panamanian intermediary to a Cayman Islands company secretly owned by the majority shareholder, who sells the rights to all seven cows' milk back to the listed company.
The annual report says that the company owns eight cows, with an option on one more.
Meanwhile, you kill the two cows because they make a mess of the office.
From the Oxford English Dictionary :
Etymology: German Nazi (c1920), shortened Nationalsozialist or Nationalsozialistisch (see National Socialist adj. and n.). Compare French Nazi (1930). The spelling with z probably arose by analogy with Sozi (shortened Sozialist socialist n. and adj.).
The term was originally used by opponents of the National Socialist German Workers' Party and may have been influenced by Bavarian Nazi, a familiar form of the proper name Ignatius and used to refer to or characterize an awkward or clumsy person.
Which is the one where they keep churning out the same ridiculous cartoon fantasies, they take in $billions but somehow seem to lose money on every project?
Oh my goodness!
Perhaps Swift was being ironic ?
I don't think it would work. The poor have such poor diets you wouldn't get a good price for their kids.
Who want's to eat high-cholesterol, junk food loaded Irish?
It would only be profitable to sell vegan fed, free-range, organic children
And the result makes everyone richer.
Suppose your country/state/city/village had to produce everything it needed locally.
No buying Mercedes fire trucks for the airport, you need to buy trucks built in Seattle. You can't buy wheat from the mid-west so bread is expensive and you cant afford it because nobody outside your state is buying Boeings.
If you want to see the standard of living you get with self sufficiency just look at rural Bhutan.
Bring back bus conductors and elevator operators.
Positive discrimination - just advertise for deaf construction workers.
Or have the MPs stay in their constituencies and meet/vote on skype.
Then they can "appear to themselves on closed circuit TV to believe they're still real.."
