Its referred to as a currency, that does not make it one. Does the bank charge cash advance for purchases of silver and gold?

Thre is enough information out there in research papers and company product documentation in combination with open source FEA tools to allow someone to make an engineering approximation of the mass, strength / stiffness and velocity required to breach any given structure. The redaction just weeds out the less competent.
federation / republic of USA
'Steele will no longer be allowed to practice law in the state, although that does leave many other states'
A good example to highlight that the USA is not 'a country' and should be viewed equivalent to Europe, and something i wish was highlited more often, mainly to brexiters.
Re: Two words really
Interesting, not come accross that before. An interesting parallel with trumpism and devaluation in local influence with rise of 'big man' promissing a return to local power / potency.
"A serious problem with the name is its pejorative connotation of backwardness, since it imputes a goal (cargo) obtained through the wrong means (cult); the actual goal is not so much obtaining material goods as creating and renewing social relationships under threat. Martha Kaplan thus argues we should erase the term altogether."
'APT 28 is variously known as Pawn Storm, Sofacy, Tsar Team, Strontium, Fancy Bear, and (now) Iron Twilight.'
Why not use unflattering nick names, rather than inflating egos, I recommend unpleasant diseases which would come up when searching for them. You never know may piss them off enough to reveal more info.
Force employees to take DNA tests for bosses? We've got a new law to make that happen, beam House Republicans
No kidding, you should see how hard it it to find animal and dairy products from animals that have not been force fed whilst living in a crowded in a car park (feed lots; now there is a nasal phenomenon). We've had to resort to 'organic' if you want butter to be yellow with flavour and not tasteless white!
en-ger-land, en-ger-land, en-ger-land!
I think it would be more enlightening to point out to the lager swilling football louts draped in a st george cross that was essentially Palestinian, or 'arab' for better effect; (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint_George)
Such associations of flag and certain countrymen still make me embarrassed, if someone asks where i'm from I say Britain
The intelligence community have been spoiled by the rapid expansion of insecure electronic communication. Either they get quantum computing running (where the assumption is that it take so much effort to break the encription that they can only focus in select targets. Or stop spending so much on bulk storage systems and hire more people willing to die for their country as spies.
Limited by evolution
Humans evolved to make large motions with limbs; moving from one place to another, lifting things etc. and manipulate small things with small precision movements of the hands.
For the vast proportion of the population with no handicaps it is most efficient to use the small precision movements that hands are capable of. In our high data rate environment hands are the only thing that is going to cut it, and until a device is capable of operating with minimal force and displacement, whilst maintaining accuracy / minimising false readings it is not going to succeed.
We are constrained by our anatomy and I cant see the mouse and keyboard begin replaced until we have reliable brain interface translators to bypass our collection of bones and muscles.
Re: Tracing paper and a roller
This is still in use, just over a month ago when purchasing an additional bag at klm/delta check-in desk (UK airport) this was the only way they could take card payments.
The poor girl had to be talked through the stage by stage use of the machine by an older member of staff.
Re: The UK can leave
There are some interesting rules regarding the division of the sea-bed that would leave scotland with somewhat less than most would guess. Couple that with the looming decommissioning problem, the north sea can be viewed as a nice employer (its going to take lot of time and money to remove all of the end of life rigs), but not as a wealth fund for government.
Good kit for travelling
As a one man business registered in the UK but working most of the time in asia, these devices have been invaluable. I can leave one in the UK and take a second with me, sync specified (important) folders between them.
The advantage of a separate unit locally is that the connection speed is at network levels and my machine does not need to be on for the two to sync up; at whatever the prevailing internet speed is. The most recent update to add versioning has been particularly useful.
