It's amazing how States always lack money to help their population through Healthcare or Education but always find resources for their Armies.

No job deserves self destruction
Addiction is most of the time a way found by someone to endure his/her condition. It's like an self-medication used to relieve the pain, something you take to be able to wake up each morning and face the World.
Trying to eradicate product consumption only is like trying to get rid of the symptoms while not curing the disease.
Addiction is the result of a mental condition: treating this mental disorder is perhaps the only way to get rid of it definitively. This article shows it well.
I strongly believe anyone suffering from an addiction should talk with a counselor and starts a psychotherapy, to understand why he/she needs to take something to be able to live. It will be the first step for a real cure.

No one is innocent. It's the mantra of intelligence agencies.
Top Euro court: No, you can't steal images from other websites (too bad a school had to be sued to confirm this little fact)

Re: Have you hit upon an interesting way to cool your tech systems?
Either that or is from the US.
If from the US he would use a migrant's child rather than an intern. There are plenty of them available for a cheap price.

I would be more happier if Outlook would incorporate at last the possibility to mail a daily digest of next meetings and appointments, something you can do in Outlook.com but not with the app.
Is all this bitterness the consequence of the World Cup semi-finals results? ^^
The traditional way of holding a phone has a strange side effect with my physical configuration: I tend to launch unexpected actions with my ear during a phone call. It's the downside of having Buddha-like ears...
That's why I use more and more the new way of holding it with the speaker on (when I'm alone, of course): no more side effects!
Whoever is not a misanthrope at forty can never have loved mankind
Facing the stupidity, violence, hatred from the many despicable assholes making a big part of the human kind is a harsh experiment. It's getting even harsher with the so-called 'social' media which are so great to propagate this stupidity, violence and hatred even more.
I'm going back in the garage.

I guess the priest didn't read the lines saying it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God?

Re: Denying reality for the sweet, sweet cash
Jerusalem does indeed exist, but most of the World doesn't recognize the Israeli annexation of the whole town and its land-stealing and people eviction policy. In your example, the political engineering is to make a specific database to please Israel.
The US seems to gladfully accept that a country invades and annexes its neighbour's land (East Jerusalem annexed by Israel, Crimea annexed by Russia...). I wonder how the US would react if Mexico took back the lands occupied in 1848?

PR BS makes me throw up. These bastard lizards are able to tell anything for bucks. No integrity, no honesty, no dignity. I fart in their general direction!
- There's a market for an app faking GPS location to fool tracking apps (I take only 10% of total incomes for this brilliant idea, thank you)
- For the poor wage slaves who work for Big Brother, it's time to get two smartphones, the cheap official one with the mandatory surveillance app and the kept-confidential one you use to play in the toilets when the first one is locked in the drawer next the working desk.
flip your phone to camera and point a tv remote at it whilst pressing a button on the remote.
It's a very useful trick to check if the batteries of the remote are empty or if it's instead that bloody TV set which went amok 30s before the start of the finale.
Burn, baby, burn
If the Music Industry considers this proposal as being good, it's a proof this proposal is a rip-off for customers.
Having the Music Industry and so-called 'right holders' in disarray is a good reason to celebrate.

All of your data are belong to us
If anyone believes whatever data on a smartphone is private, let him/her contact me, I've got an Eiffel Tower to sell.
there is no domestic processor or accelerator manufacturer of global scale. No local DRAM players. No European makers of disk or solid-state drives of significance. The same is true for interconnect technology.
True, and this initiative could be an opportunity to change that, if funding is adequate.
In a previous job/life, I was contacted by a governmental agency proposing to enable us to use their HPC means. The offer was interesting but lacked one layer to be really interesting: the software layer. Having hardware is good but without software it's useful only as a heat dispenser.
EIB should also take this point in consideration and promote also adequate software development.
Re: Brexit means EDF!
Don't see why the US should be disappointed
1) Because it won't be in charge and won't have a word to say.
2) Because it will have consequences on materials. If European countries start
(at last!) to take seriously military matters into their own hands, they will favor buying european stuff rather than american ones. A lot of money won't flow to the US anymore.
The results accounted for age, sex, race, smoking status, BMI, educational attainment and a whole range of nutritional factors.
What about location (through exposure to pollution or environmental hazards), heredity, physical activity, jobs ? All of these are known to be factors for cancer.
Since when correlation is causality??

I would rather spare a thought for those that last 1 day more than the warranty duration :doh:

Money back? Why? It's UK decision to leave EU, UK has to deal with the consequences.
If you book a room in a hotel and leave in the evening, good luck to have a refund.
What does Belgacom think about it?
According to the leaked documents GCHQ probed Belgacom's infrastructure for years. According to the leaked documents 'Operation Socialist' has been qualified by the head of the GCHQ's Network Analysis Centre as a success.
Snowden subsequently described Operation Socialist as the "first documented example to show one EU member state mounting a cyber attack on another
In the Good Ol' Days
No surprise people accessing your website accessing your website in 1995 expected everything being free.
In those days the WWW was not yet the mix of supermarket, brothel and deathtrap it became later, it was a place where academics, schools and nerds were exchanging knowledge for free in a Star-trek like utopia. It didn't last long, like most of utopias

Re: 'Robots would also be unlikely to forget the SD card for their cameras'
To date ESA is the only space entity that has *EVER* successfully landed a mission on the surface of a comet. To date India is the only country that has *EVER* successfully be able to launch its first mission to Mars. So what? Does that make their cock bigger? Is this the point of space exploration?
Re: This is why science rocks
If placebo works, homeopathy also works.
So does Voodoo, witchcraft and astrology...
I bought one of those recently (Xiaomi M365). For the price the item is impressive. It's a good alternative to go to work rather than taking car or (motor)bike. Riding one is legally a grey area here in France. Technically, it's forbidden to drive one on roads (when electric bicycles are allowed, don't ask for MPs to be coherent), and it's tolerated on pavement, as long as you don't go faster than a pedestrian. It's also tolerated to drive one in bicycle lane, but it's just a tolerance. But living in Southern France, policemen are more relaxed and didn't bother me with such details for the moment.
I do not understand why these electric scooters aren't consider as bicycles, as long as they do not exceed a speed of 25 km/h (0.0002% of the maximum velocity of a sheep in a vacuum), are equipped with lights and brakes.
Re: "It won't"
Worth mentioning the accident rate for single engined fighter is actually lower than that for twin engined ones.
Not surprisingly, there are more engine-related crashes for single engined fighters than twin engined ones.
As one simple datum to consider, between FY1990 and FY2004, the single-engine F-16 suffered 80 Class A engine-related mishaps for a rate of 1.31 per 100,000 flight hours. The twin-engine F-15 suffered 21 engine related Class A engine-related mishaps for a rate of .64 per 100,000 flight hours.
If UK was not so much europhobic, it could have buy some Rafale, it's a twin-engine aircraft with combat-proven efficiency, and much less expensive than the F35.
I guess the 51st state wasn't free to buy what it wants to equip its air force...
If TESCO knows, then NSA knows and by proxy GCHQ knows also
An advice for Mr. Dabbs.
Keep this article somewhere, you'll be able to reuse it a few years with just replacing "blockchain" by the next hyper-hyped technology. Et hop, Blockchain will offer you a quite work-free column with a simple "search and replace".
