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?

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?
- 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.
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.
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.
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
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
With a game-changing ability to [...] tackle terrorism
So F-35 will stop 'lone wolves' stabbing randomly people in the street? No shit!
If you can’t see us coming, you won’t be able to stop us
The 1999 F-117A shootdown was an event that took place on 27 March 1999, during the NATO bombing of Yugoslavia [...] when an Army of Yugoslavia unit used an S-125 Neva/Pechora to down a Lockheed F-117 Nighthawk stealth aircraft of the United States Air Force
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?
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.
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.
1. The drastic decline in birth rate to virtually zero seen everywhere in Eastern Europe (and worst in Russia) in the 1990-es and early 2000-s is now reversed.
2. The most recent stats show decrease of alcohol consumption per capita by a factor of more than 2.
Problem is, it's hard to believe any official figures coming from Putinland, and there's no independent ones anymore. So any statistic has to be taken carefully.
May, 7 2018: Ivanka Trump is granted seven trademarks by Chinese authorities
May, 11 2018: the Chinese government floated a $500 million loan to a project partnered with the Trump organization.
Those Chinese are clever businessmen, they know well how to use corruption with the greedy ones.
Harvested energy, for instance.
Producing hydrogen is much a better way to store electricity than batteries. Also, hydrogen-powered cars have a much better range than electric ones using batteries.
