The No-Fly list does not allow the person on chartered private flights, and it even denies a person from flying overseas into Canada or Mexico. There are even reports that DHS will go further and attempt to block a person from taking a ship into the US as well, US citizen or not.
The US DID intern Arab-Americans in the week after 9/11, in mass roundups and arrests, and almost all of them were later released without charge nor apology. Then the government began a series of interrogations, fingerprinting, and in many cases deportation proceedings in 2002 for thousands of Arab and Muslim green card holders and immigrant families.
Therefore, they don't NEED nuclear.
Incorrect. Iran winds up using a lot of its oil for domestic purposes, when it could export it at a higher profit. They're trying to maximize the returns.
And there are several reasons they are pursuing nuclear power, not just the oil. Part of it is to help bolster it's desire to lead the region in STEM, since they've been trying for decades to show their technological advancement (and they have good engineering), as well as their technological independence. Another part of it is so that they could achieve nuclear latency, or the Japan Option; if threatened with war, they could convert their civilian nuclear power program into a functional nuclear weapons program in a matter of months as a response. (Better than Israel currently threatening them with nuclear attack and the US military literally on both east and west borders of the country)
Google is "troubled" but I doubt they will raise a much bigger fuss than that. Why? Because they are competing for government contracts against Microsoft and other vendors for Cloud services etc. So while this deeply undermines the company, they probably won't get too loud about it until it starts to wreck their reputation too severely.
I beg to differ. Much of Apollo 13 was filmed while in the "Vomit Comet" to shoot freefall scenes.
Let's hope that they use PGP or S/MIME and that this motivates other ISPs to roll it out as well. This would hopefully motivate GMail to at least make it compatible in some way. (I mean checking signatures etc)
The problem with throwing out the Constitution and starting over (which is something that even Thomas Jefferson advocated for every generation) is that in this political climate, a lot of good things would be thrown out and bad things enshrined. You think Freedom of Religion would stay in the Constitution unchanged when the Tea Party insists that Muslim Americans and atheists don't deserve the same rights? How about press freedom? How about second amendment, which needs modifying; do you think politicians will make it easier to get a gun or harder? For that reason, it's very hard to change without opening a Pandora's Box of politician tampering.
I did write "" (the unequal sign), does slashdot not process symbols?
Fine, Continuity checking != "Fact checking"
Continuity checking "Fact checking"
" If they try and label him a terrorist, zero US citizens are going to buy it so that would just cheapen the word."
Not according to the talking heads on all the news channels. Considering how many people hate Bradley Manning and Julian Assange, an awful lot of people will trust the government's word yet again.
The NSA couldn't shut down PGP (though they did try unsuccessfully to restrict the public's access to it), and Snowden said it's still secure.
We already have PGP, which is open-sourced. Will this be better and easier to use?
To be fair, not every password is a simple word or phrase. If it's a randomly-generated password, you need to store it. I agree that having it on paper and not in some sort of encrypted keychain is an extremely bad idea, and I'm surprised that the Greenwald/Miranda/Poitras team made such a huge mistake.
That's something OAuth already addresses (which is why twitter and Facebook use it). When you log in via the portal page, it gives the third party app a token rather than letting them see your password. The token can be revoked at any time from your permissions page or the company can blacklist that app. Tesla's implementation shares the password with the third party apps AND the token can't be revoked early.
OR someone to log into a dodgy third party site, OR someone to crack a third party site and get all the tokens
