"So, a sort of "Make Coal Dirty Again" campaign promise? Funny, I can't remember Trump promising that, but If you think that's what he did then I guess I must have missed it somehow."
He may not of promised that, but let us look at what he has done
1) Trump rolls back climate change rule that restricted new coal plants (https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2018/dec/06/trump-rolls-back-climate-change-rule-that-restricted-new-coal-plants)
2) Trump administration to cut air pollution from heavy-duty trucks (https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2018/nov/13/epa-new-heavy-duty-truck-pollution-rule-nitrogen-oxide)
3) Trump administration rolls back methane pollution rule despite harmful health impacts (https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2018/sep/18/epa-methane-pollution-rule-rolled-back-health-warning)
Will you also change the nation anthem to:
When dragons belch and hippos flee
My thoughts, England, are of thee
Let others boast of martial dash
For we have boldly fought with cash
We own all your helmets, we own all your shoes
We own all your generals - touch us and you'll lose.
England owns the day!
We can rule you wholesale
Touch us and you'll pay.
We bankrupt all invaders, we sell them souvenirs

Chaotic neutral is someone who pledges to neither the good or evil spectrum, but enjoys ******* things up. Deadpool is a mercenary who enjoys his job. He is 'chaotic' because his means and motives are simply to have fun. This is usually attributed to psychopathic characters, which Deadpool is.

"Five to one against and falling..." she said, "four to one against and falling...three to one...two...one...probability factor of one to one...we have normality, I repeat we have normality."

It was called Distant Origin
On the planet where Voyager's crew had previously been marooned, Professor Gegen and his assistant Veer, two paleontologists of a space-faring saurian species known as the Voth, discover the skeletal remains of a human, most likely Lt. Hogan. They are fascinated by the similarity of its genome to their own species, and Gegen suggests that this supports the highly controversial Distant Origin theory, that the Voth had originated on a far-distant planet instead of the current area of space from which they rule their empire. Proof of the theory has been sought by other Voth scientists, but the heretical theory has often led to their exile.
To confirm their proof, Gegen and Veer track down the origin of the skeleton, learning of Voyager's presence in the Delta Quadrant. They locate the ship and transport aboard while cloaked, observing the mostly human crew in the setting. Voyager's sensors detect their presence, and the crew reveals the two Voth. Veer responds instinctively by releasing sedative-tipped needles that strike Chakotay; Gegen grabs the human and transports him aboard his ship, fleeing from Voyager. The Doctor examines Veer and identifies the similar genetic structure; he and Captain Janeway use simulations to determine that the Voths descended from a species of dinosaur known as the hadrosaurs, probably of genus Parasaurolophus.
Gegen wakes Chakotay, and explains the situation, requesting Chakotay accompany him when he presents his evidence to the Voth elders; meanwhile, Voyager is captured by the Voth. Gegen is put on trial for heresy, and it soon becomes clear that he has been pre-judged guilty and the "trial" is only an opportunity for him to recant and reduce his punishment. Veer, recovered from Voyager, is coerced to act as a witness against Gegen by Minister Odala. Chakotay attempts to argue for Gegen, noting that the Voth theory of origins has changed so much to fit what the Voth wish to believe and not reality. Odala rejects this, sentencing Gegen to a prison colony unless he recants. When he still refuses, she then orders Voyager destroyed and its entire crew, the evidence for his theory, also sent to the prison colony. Gegen, unwilling to see them destroyed, realizes he has no choice but to recant.
Odala assigns Gegen a new job, and orders Voyager to leave Voth space forever. Before departing, Chakotay gives Gegen a globe of the Earth, which Gegen acknowledges that someday, the Voth will accept as their home world
When I was at College there were a number of Amstrad 1640s in the computer lab for general use. They stated that the HDD were locked down so you couldn't copy any information to the HDD.
However a quick boot from a FDD proved that the software was run in the config.sys file.
A quick FDSIK later and there is no C: drive
Customer: Can I have 10Mbps internet
Customer: I have a legal right to demand a minimum broadband download speed of 10Mbps
Bt: Yes you have a legal right to demand a minimum broadband download speed of 10Mbps
Customer: Can I have 10Mbps internet
Customer: But you said that I have a legal right to demand a minimum broadband download speed of 10Mbps
Bt: That's correct, you have legal a right to demand a minimum broadband download speed of 10Mbps, but we don't have an legal obligation to supply a minimum broadband download speed of 10Mbps
Colonel Sandurz: Sir?
Dark Helmet: [about to use the bullhorn to the workers but uses it on Sandurz instead] What?
Colonel Sandurz: Are we being too literal?
Dark Helmet: [through the bullhorn] No, you fool, we're following orders. We were told to comb the desert, so we're combing it. [puts down bullhorn] Found anything yet?!
Soldier: Nothing yet, sir!
Dark Helmet: How about you?!
Soldier: Not a thing, sir!
[camera pans to two soldiers using an Afro Pick.]
Dark Helmet: What about you guys?!
Black soldier: We ain't found shit!
"Periapsis burns are standard practice for capture. Cassini and Galileo both depended on planetary gravity to help their captures."
Shhhhh don't tell NASA, the last time they tried this on MARS they got their Freedom Units mixed up and hit the planet hard
A contract must be awarded on the basis of either:
Lowest price: The lowest priced tender wins. No other element of the tender may be taken into account; or
The most economically advantageous tender (MEAT): Factors other than or in addition to price, like quality, technical merit and running costs can be taken into account.
If MEAT is used:
the contract award criteria (e.g. "price, quality of services, risk to contracting authority etc.") and any sub-criteria must be set out either in the OJEU notice or the tender documents; and
the weighting of each criterion (and sub-criterion, if weighted) must also normally be given, either as an exact number or as a meaningful range (e.g. 'price: 30%-40%'.).
Public procurement law: the basics (https://www.out-law.com/page-5964)
"MGM suing the victims of the mass shooting in Las Vegas."
MGM is not suing for money, but the company wants a federal court to rule that it cannot be held liable for the shooting by more than 1,000 victims and others it named in the suits. The company said it named only people that have already sued or given notice that they intend to do so.
It is based on a federal law passed after the Sept. 11 terror attacks, which is known as the Support Antiterrorism by Fostering Effective Technologies, or Safety, Act.
The law is intended to shield federally certified manufacturers of security equipment and providers of security services from liability should they fail to prevent a terrorist attack, which the law defines as an unlawful act that causes mass destruction to citizens or institutions of the United States.
MGM contends that under the law, which Congress passed in 2002, it is immunized from liability because it met two conditions: A security company that was hired for the concert had a certification from the Department of Homeland Security, and the shooting qualified, in the company’s view, as an “act of terrorism.”
There is, however the company were given notice that the law was changing and that to compile with the new law they would need to change how they processed data. They didn't change and thus were charged with breaching the new law
It's is bit like the speed limits on a road changing from 30 mph to 20 mph, you would have seen the new signs going up and if you still drive at 30 mph you will be taken to court.
The Electronic Signatures Directive (99/93/EC)
An electronic signature must be:
•uniquely linked to the signatory;
•capable of identifying the signatory;
•created using means that the signatory can maintain under his sole control;
•linked to the data in such a manner that any subsequent change of the data is detectable.
The most common methods of achieving this are to use cryptography (symmetric or asymmetric) technology .
So you will need a encryption system that all the parties agree to and can use. Or you use a fax
According to the Radio 4 interview, the following information was stolen
1) Credit Card number
2) Expiration date
3) CVV number
And he wanted to tell how the information was stolen, but it was very complicated (subtext it was in a report he read, but it wasn’t written in a language he understood)
During her time as Prime Minister, Margaret Thatcher openly called a terrorist a "true friend", invited a terrorist into her home for tea, and personally lobbied against a terrorist's prosecution for war crimes.
Thatcher's support for Chile's former torturer-in-chief General Pinochet is no secret; it was something she was proud of. Despite her assertion that “The United States and Britain have together been the greatest alliance in defence of liberty and justice,” Thatcher refused to back down in her support of a man who overthrew a democratically elected government. This was a man who initiated the notorious Caravan of Death, the army unit that travelled the country by helicopter, murdering and torturing the General's opponents.
