"even though the Champagne method was invented here."
The champagne method was first documented as being used in Somerset (for cider, not wine), but at a Clunaic (i.e. French controlled) abbey. They may well have been using a process with a much earlier, undocumented, origin
One day, China, the Arab block, Russia et al are going to turn this on its head.
All they need to do it announce a new regime of sanctions against Israel, and then fine any US company that breaches them.
Apple, Microsoft, most of the defence companies.......a $billion or two from each would soon make the trumptons sit up and think
Well if you crowd-fund me I'll start the X7 Reuseable Rocket Corporation
I'm sure there would be more chance of developing a workable product than that bunch with the Sinclair Spectrum retread
If everyone in the USA and Europe would give me £10 I'll guarantee a flyable demonstrator one day.
I don't understand why anyone went into this expecting a usable product. These delays shouldn't be any surprise.
In his heyday, Sinclair's products were all at least one of:
late, badly designed, hare-brained, faulty, unsafe, unreliable or just plain crap.
Why did anyone think this would be different?
"Kott’s ideas rest on the assumption that countries have obeyed a ban on autonomous weapons “beyond meaningful control”."
Weapons are increasingly going to be "fire and forget": it reduces the risk of hacking, and allows longer range attacks at a higher rate.
ISIS et al aren't going to obey any bans, any more than Russia is obeying any bans on chemical warfare
I'm making no criticism of you, your work, or your way of life. I'm not suggesting in any way that you should be stopped from working. If anything I'd prefer to see the system regularised in some way so that there's no room for the likes of the crooks at Backpage to make money through exploitation.
You're right about the difficulty of identifying who is / isn't trafficked / exploited. There's a fine line sometimes in deciding the truth.
But, yes I've been watching this for a few years now and I'm confident of the figures. Backpage was a criminals paradise: in most cases either the girls were victims, or the adverts were come-ons for the punters to get ripped off.
You use Adultwork. Good, the chances of a trafficking victim being on there are a lot lower and have reduced in the last year with the extra verification checks, but there are still some especially among the chinese / romanian / hungarian / russian girls. But they are relatively easy to spot.
As for other businesses, yep you're right. Car washes, farms, nail bars, cannabis greenhouses - they all need close attention.
