It's ok, he's an amature.
I'm thinking the same thing. Maybe it's a ploy. After the Republican president and Republican-led House (and fairly even Senate) first passed the Patriot Act into law in 2001, having Obama support it now is the best way to have the Republicans of today reject it. Hell, you can steer the Party of No around right now just by having Obama support the opposite viewpoint of what you want.
In the U.S. a federal crime is worse because you end up going to a federal pound-you-in-the-ass prison.
He's getting fined for it, and it could become significant. I'm not sure what my opinion is on it, either. I don't like that his usage of land was put into law by others, after he had bought it. But then again, he bought a golf course and is trying to do something totally different with it.
You must be new here.
500 milli-....what? It's a prefix. You can't be serious that you mistook that for something other than 500 million. Even so, maybe it's just a small typo that you could ignore, much like "prety."
Sometimes number crunching is simply for the sake of data gathering before making an opinion, in order to make the best, most-informed opinion. If you're making an opinion based on the 28K/arrest, then it's IMO inherently wrong, because the number is wrong. If not "wrong," then it's at least misinformed. By virtue of you reading through this article and comments, and then commenting here, I assume you're interested in the subject, as should every U.S. citizen of voting age. But, basically, my opinion is irrelevant with respect to first gather facts.
I did some calculations and I'd like a critical review. My disagreement with the number is that they are including the price of the drones in the first year operation. I don't think that's a valid comparison to cost per apprehension. Thus, I would like to know the total operational cost, which is number of hours times cost per hour. The number of hours from the report is calculation as 22% of the goal of 16hrs/day for 365 days (or 1284.8 hours). The cost per hour calculated by OIG is $12,255. Thus, a total cost of about $15.7M. Divide that by 2,272 apprehensions for an actual cost of $6,930.12 per apprehension.
No, the company has offices in both Palo Alto and in Israel. The CEO and co-founder was born in Israel. The company itself was founded in Israel.
Took some significant technology improvements in MOO2, that's for sure.
No joke, that's the reason called out in TFA for the Chinese to do this.
That's pretty funny.
Expect your prices to go up in direct proportion to any fines levied.
This is not through a medium. Light travels slowly through water, for example, but returns to the speed of light after exiting the water. This is passing photons through a mask, and then those photons staying at the slower speed.
