They would need a charge, which they would not have, or probable cause, which they would not have.

I think we're done here, if all that we have is speculation and bluster.

You are correct, you cannot be held without a charge with the except of suspicion of terrorism or links to terrorism. The Patriot Act allows you to be held pretty much indefinitely without being charged. Just ask all those people in Gitmo. That said, the boarder guards can't do that, that is why they would need to turn you over to homeland security. But they can detain you for as long as it takes for HS to get there and get you. Is it constitutional, no, but it is the Patriot Act.

Submission + - China to become global energy lab - ANN - Asia Global Energy Fraud->

Publication Date : 08-06-2013

China will become the world's energy laboratory for decades to come, as the country continues to create a greener economy, experts said at the Chengdu Fortune Global Forum on Friday.

"The transition from fossil fuels to green energy will take decades, but we can start with something such as natural gas," said Sun Simin, chairman of the Asia Clean Energy Innovation Initiative.

He said that China and the United States have already launched cooperation projects to facilitate such a goal. For instance, some major State-owned enterprises are importing liquefied natural gas from the US to benefit from the low energy prices caused by the shale gas revolution in the country.

Matt Fox, executive vice-president of exploration and production at ConocoPhillips, said that his company is also helping bring LNG from Australia to China, in cooperation with China National Petroleum Corp.

The imports are to meet increasing energy needs amid the continuously expanding economy, which is expected to nearly double between now and 2020.

China accounts for 20.7 per cent of global energy demand, and China's energy consumption is growing four times faster than the rest of the world, according to a report compiled by Dupont.

"China's growth in energy consumption will profoundly reshape the global energy market in coming years, by boosting energy prices and stimulating scientific innovation across the energy sector, from fossil fuels to renewable energy," the report said.

But in the process, China will still be heavily dependent on fossil fuels in the foreseeable future.

China depends on coal for about 80 per cent of its electricity generation. Such dependence carries heavy environmental costs: Environmental degradation, pollution, and associated health problems cost an estimated 11 per cent of China's annual GDP, according to a report by the Lawrence Livermoure National Lab.

"The government is very much aware of the issue and is taking the people's discontent on board in setting future policies," said Felix Zhang, executive director of Envision Energy Ltd.

He said the distributed power generation system introduced by the National Development and Reform Commission was a good example and is a further step towards more energy efficiency.

"We're also working with the authorities on some pilot programmes , and the government is still trying to find out the most efficient way to implement them," he said.

"Major Chinese energy companies such as Shenhua, Huaneng and State Grid have used their State funding and own resources to develop biofuels, shale gas and smart grids," the Dupont report said.

Ling Wen, CEO of China Shenhua Energy Co, said that SOEs should assume more social responsibilities, and energy giants such as Shenhua are obliged to provide clean energy to the people.

In the early 1970s the private ownership of gold was legalized under the Ford presidency. The price bounced around $75/oz. Now the dollar price is 20 times higher and the population has doubled, so a comparably sized multinational would deal with 40 times as much money measured in dollars. That takes your "low-end 6 figure salary" to "7 or 8 figures" without changing value.

Feed Engadget: What's next for Nokia? Here maps, network infrastructure and 'advanced technolog->

Now that Microsoft has the reigns to Nokia's devices and services business, what's the company going to do with all that spare time on its hands? It's keeping busy, it seems. Outlined in a separate announcement from Espoo, Nokia is going to play to its existing strengths, continuing to develop its Here maps platform, with the aim of becoming the "leading independent location cloud platform company, offering mapping and location services across different screens and operating systems."

In the slightly more straight-laced (but profitable) world of network infrastructure, Nokia's NSN will continue to develop and build LTE networks and, well, whatever comes after that. Which ties in neatly to Nokia's third focus: advanced technologies. The company aims to continue exploring "new business opportunities", continuing to research and develop concepts involved in connectivity, sensing and material technologies -- possibly along the lines of concepts devices we've seen from Nokia in the past. This is also the same arm of the company that'll keep an eye on Nokia's patent portfolio. The company is unsurprisingly bullish about its future, with its new interim President, Timo Ihamuotila, reckoning the deal will make Nokia's financial situation "significantly stronger".

Feed Engadget: NVIDIA-branded mystery tablet passes through Taiwan's NCC->

Rumors have circulated of an NVIDIA-designed Android tablet, but there has been little hard evidence of its existence. Thankfully, NVIDIA just provided some clues of its own: as Blog of Mobile noticed, the company recently sent a self-branded P1640 tablet to Taiwan's National Communications Commission for approval. While the filing reveals few details of the hardware apart from the expected presences of Bluetooth and 802.11n WiFi, it's safe to presume that the slate uses an NVIDIA-made processor like the Tegra 4. The real mystery is the P1640's intended audience. When NVIDIA already has a Tegra 4 reference tablet, the new design isn't necessarily built for internal use; it could also be a developer device or a consumer product like Shield. It's not clear if or when NVIDIA will announce the tablet, but you can check out a second NCC photo of the gadget after the break.

"so he is at least partly motivated by greed" is a negative aspersion against him.

No it isn't. I already identified myself as a Libertarian, and we believe that greed is a force for good. So I was praising him, not criticizing him. If his workers benefit, and their lives are improved, then why is it "negative" if his company also profits? If someone does a good deed out of self interest, that is better than if they do it as pure altruism, because self interest is more sustainable and scalable. It is foolish to believe that if some wins, then someone else must lose.

I tend to agree that we want small companies and small government to avoid the problem of having one entity that overpowers the rest.

My point was not about one group overpowering others. It was a more basic one about human psychology. The larger the group the more people seem to drop their own moral compass and substitute that of the group. The larger the group the worse the individuals in it tend to behave. At least that is what I have observed.

As far as society needing large companies for certain things I do agree. My point is that it would be nice if we could figure out a way to avoid such concentrations of (economic) power. I don't think there is truly a practical way to do so however. The best we can hope for is to at least not grant such organizations any special privileges or special status. It is a group of individuals nothing more. It should be treated as such.

VPNs and mechanisms to create links on the fly existed prior to this patent. So I'm surprised that the patent was found to be valid over Chat and video protocols, more careful reading is required.
