Indeed, and the next step is to crank up the power and see what it spits out. If they get past the margins of error in a BIG way, then people will sit up and take notice. This (not yet published?) experiment will give impetus to the next step.
EM drive is accelerating virtual particles, not warping space. The Cannae drive is hypothesized to warp space. Two *different subjects*, and we're confusing them into one.
People are confusing two drives undergoing testing, the EMDrive, which is hypothesized to work on virtual particle acceleration, and the Cannae drive, which the inventor hypothesizes is a warp drive.
The scientists involved are well aware of the need for controls, and are eliminating the factors as you indicate. When they are done, they will publish.
New science is not always required if something odd is noticed. Sometimes it comes down to a loophole no one thought of before. Even a loophole that never existed in the universe until bags of carbon, water and minerals twiddled things around a bit. Interferometric telescopy, for instance; when I was a wee sprite, they were talking about the impossibility of super large mirrors to observe planets around other stars. Then someone said, why not put two scopes far from each other and combine the images? No new physics, just a tweak. Gravitational lensing is another; took advantage of a loophole.
They were being cagey, not releasing details about their experiment, instead of publishing as scientists ought to. They were hoping for a big payday. I spoke too soon about patents, and tried to roll it back.
The requirements are dynamic. If this doesn't work, they'll morph it into something that does work. This is a process without end.
Reactionary was the word we used to describe this sort of behavior.
A man doesn't need anything but his hands, feet, eyes, and a gun to kill blasphemers. Surveillance is irrelevant. They're making the same damned mistake we did, confusing power and the all-seeing eye with safety. They'll use this to round up Muslims, same as the US does. Innocence or guilt is irrelevant. They'll go into holes for life or get blown up real good.
The questions remains: who will protect us from the people spying on us? The people behind the spy eyes will change over time. The may even become the people who want to shoot you for blasphemy. Ever think of that? In Saudi Arabia, the all-seeing eye will be on the lookout for women driving cars. In North Korea, they'll be looking out for anyone they damned well want to kill. In South America, for anyone challenging the wealthy's control. In America, straight up they're looking for anyone who dares challenge corporate power - no more draconian surveillance was used here than when Occupy managed to gain some attention. The US managed an unprecedented surveillance and pre-crime arrest sweep during Occupy, showing what secret surveillance was really good for: control of the status quo,.
Oh well, freedom was nice while it lasted.
What this does, more to the point, is put millions of people out of work, and ruin the Teamsters union as a side effect.
This was never about self-driving cars. This was always about wiping out an entire employment sector and piping even more profit up to the top. And yes, that is a bad thing.
"Administration aides say they can’t make the details public because the negotiations are still going on with multiple countries at once; if for example, Vietnam knew what the American bottom line was with Japan, that might drive them to change their own terms. Trade might not seem like a national security issue, they say, but it is (and foreign governments regularly try to hack their way in to American trade deliberations)."
You're knowingly ingesting carcinogenic chemicals with every cup of coffee.
Not me. I don't live near a fracking site.
The bill decrees that hosting providers and Internet service providers in France must be equipped with a "black box" that can retain all digital communications from customers. "The new law would create a 13-member National Commission to Control Intelligence Techniques, which would be made up of six magistrates from the Council of State and the Court of Appeals, three representatives of the National Assembly, three senators from the upper house of Parliament and a technical expert. ... The only judicial oversight is a provision that allows the commission to lodge a complaint with the Council of State, but lawyers are doubtful that it could be convened on a routine basis." We previously discussed news that ISPs may leave France in protest if the bill was passed. Now we'll know shortly if those ISPs will live up to their word.
Rumor grows of a shadow in the C:\, "
What gamer in their right mind installs their games on their system drive.
Doubly so for their SteamApps folder. I don't want to have to re-download 100 odd GB of games when windows goes tits up.
They are simply injecting it. Someone else is claiming that it's safe.
So, they're knowingly injecting toxic and carcinogenic chemicals into the water supply. Thank you for the clarification.
This is not an issue of incapable hardware. That's proven both by the fact that there's no reason why Google couldn't have kept the minimum system requirements the same from 2.2 to 5, and the fact that plenty of manufacturers were already abandoning their 2.2 shit before 2.3 came out, let alone anything actually more advanced!
FYI, you'd be (in a similar sense) "broadcasting" your location when using your home landline too (i.e., the fact that you're at home). But they still need a fucking warrant for that!
