Unlike the desktop version of Firefox, though, mobile Firefox downloads the ads and merely hides them, meaning that on a platform where you really don't want to waste unnecessary data, FF mobile's adblock is merely an exercise in aesthetics.
If an unvaccinated child dies, can the parent who has denied their child a vaccination be prosecuted for child endangerment?
Maybe that's what it'll take to end this virus of ignorance.
I like the fact that they really acknowledge the fatiguing aspect of fighting. Makes it seem so much more real.
>"Parallel Construction" [wikipedia.org] is a fundamental part of police work now.
So true and yet an utterly chilling sentence.
A DEA official said, "Parallel construction is a law enforcement technique we use every day. It's decades old, a bedrock concept."
Where the state is engaging in perjury, openly and without shame, what justice can there be?
The video: after about six minutes of pointless waffle, the video shows some kids playing with this, for about five seconds. Then back to the waffle.
>If I own a newspaper I can decide what I publish in the paper.
If you own a newspaper, you pay people to write FOR you. These people are your employees.
If you host a *public* blogging platform, you can certainly disallow what people are allowed to publish there, but you don't get to not call it censorship.
Oh please. Why do people (mostly American) trot out this narrow, legalistic, definition of "censorship"?
Blogger is a site where the public can post their communications. If Blogger is deciding certain communications are unacceptable and is either hiding them or disallowing them entirely, it's still censorship.
Just because Google isn't a government, doesn't mean it can't engage in censorship.
Never mind parental controls, how about user controls over app permissions? (ie. putting the user and their privacy/security first.)
Strange, I have a Nexus 7 (2012) with Lollipop 5.0.2 and it's fine for the most part, wiht the only niggle being the occasional lag that occurrs shortly after unlocking it when it polls online services like gmail.
Essentially, they have a prophylactic to protect them from the virus that is vaccination denialism?
It's almost as if France, instead of capitulating to whichever corporation throws the most money at them, instead listens to ordinary people who exercise their democratic voice.
Also (I know, going for the jugular a bit here) do you want me to talk about Comcast? Cos I can talk about Comcast.
Yes, France's public transport system, for example is an example of the sort of failure that we, for instance in the UK, shudder at.
Cheap fares, efficient operation, a boon to the country and its people.
Ours in the UK, meanwhile engages in double-dipping (making shareholder profits while receiving public subsidy), has terrible roling stock and fucking high ticket prices that rise regardless of the economics of the country, all along with local monopolies(!!!!)
Those bloody French socialists and their incompetence!
Again, I find myself agreeing with you largely, and would merely add that the President is mostly a figurehead (albeit one with *some* clout) and there are a body of people behind the scenes, who are not elected that run the show. And that includes corporate and wealthy power outside but with access. The US isn't a dictatorship, but the people who control what happens are just as unconcerned with the little people as any dictator.
