The Rest Of The World should be working on hacking BGP to make paths between the NSA and the world unroutable.
Many aircraft of this class are equipped with an ELT (Emergency Locator Transmitter). These are difficult, if not impossible to disable in flight, as they are mounted remotely from the cockpit and are self powered. They can fail under certain circumstances. They may not activate if the aircraft impacts the ground. Or if it sinks immediately, carrying the ELT down with it.
I am wondering about the current status of ELTs following the fire in a parked 787 caused by a wiring fault in one. Was there an order put out to remove suspect units pending inspection? Has the inspection been completed or are airlines flying around without these?
If we remove the dealer who is going to stock parts, deliver them, and install them?
The Tesla service center. Owned and operated by the manufacturer but not necessarily co-located with the sales showroom.
There are federal regulations mandating service and spare parts availability. I see no problem with Tesla (or any other manufacturer or dealer) devising alternate support infrastructures for their products. So long as they meet the needs of the customer.
Tesla might actually provide better service than the average dealer. I bought a Toyota years ago from a dealer some distance from my residence and much farther away than the nearest one. If you want to se some long faces and snotty attitudes, watch the close by dealership service department when I bring in a car I didn't buy from them. Count on them leaving it parked for a few extra days "waiting for parts" just as a little "fuck you for not buying it here".
Because so many states are disallowed.
First time through, I read that as "parolees".
Fine by me.
Men have learned to compete for something. Women compete against each other. In the few venues (like sports) where head to head competition occurs, it does so under very structured rules. And winners are judged by the superiority of their skills, not tripping their adversary. That's considered poor sportsmanship.
Its a cultural thing, taught from a very early age. Think about the stereotype of a man who talks trash behind other people's back. When men do trash talk, its is to each other's face as a precursor to some competitive act. Like the (usually staged) face off before a boxing match. Even then, the object is to remain cool and prove one's superiority in the ring rather than tossing insults back and forth.
Yes, but each requires filling out entirely different forms. In triplicate.
Oh, sorry. I thought these were Indian satellites we were talking about.
Smarter than the TSA.
They do seem to profile mice unfairly though.

Its just a bunch of tubes.
Actually, they may have more to lose from this policy than others. Specifically, the socially conservative ones.
With the elimination of policies like "don't ask, don't tell", people with alternative lifestyles no longer represent blackmail risks if they are not ashamed of coming out of the closet. Members of more conservative social groups who participate in such alternative lifestyle activities (and there are quite a few of them) will still be at risk from being ostracized by their community.
Security services have come to understand this. They have found that people with things to hide and pressures other than a threat to their employment to keep them hidden are ongoing risks. The tendency will be to identify such people and block them from sensitive areas of the government.
