It doesn't matter what an "administration" thinks about space anyhow. All the President can do is cheerleading. It's our legislative branch that keeps underfunding NASA, making sure that what funds they do provide are mostly earmarked to ensure that they go to the appropriate pork projects. Projects such as the Senate Launch System , which still lacks any real mission after it (someday) goes up for the first crewed test flight.
Right now the only purpose of SLS is to build SLS.
Great Freudian slip there!
If I had been hit 3 times by cars I know I'd have to take a look at what I was doing wrong. It might be their fault as you say but most cyclists seem to manage to wobble down the road without getting run over repeatedly. Not to mention that sooner or later it's going to be fatal. Think about it.
Don't be a dick. I can empathize with the AC you responded to. I once had an idiot driver actually lock eyes with me while I was riding down a main street, and yet he proceeded to pull out in front of me, essentially running (not fully stopping at) a stop sign, rolling, apparently thinking that cyclists have no rights over a car. I didn't have room to swerve to the left to avoid him, as there was a car on my left. I went over his hood and somehow managed to land on my feet. I would have ripped his head off right there when he claimed he didn't see me, but he hopped back into his car and fled the scene. My bike thankfully wasn't heavily damaged.
. Another time, while riding down a two-lane highway with my wife right in front of me, we had a driver blast by (we later found out he was drunk - and fleeing the cops) actually clipping my pedal. How I didn't go down from the glancing blow and the wind I'll never know. One more inch to the right and I would have been killed. I later found out from the cops he was clocked doing 85mph down that stretch of 55mph highway. He apparently hit another car earlier. He spent time in jail for that one.
Most serious adult cyclists do in fact have a better understanding of traffic laws than the average driver. They have to - or else them become victims of drivers with the situational awareness of a rock. Unfortunately natural selection is non-discriminating.
Unfortunately, Congress is ceding power to both the Executive and Legislative that can only weaken our rights and liberty. They are becoming less and less relevant.
Uh, unless things have changed around here, Congress IS the Legislative branch of the US Federal government.
Current hysteria sounds like assassins can use the pump to kill their targets and avoid discovery, which unless answers are "yes" and "yes" is false, or at least no worse than current medical devices.
Maybe the pump is crap, but the security researcher here is more crap, and
That is in fact what the researcher is saying - the answers are yes and yes. By simply gaining access to any configured PCA pump, whether it's in hospital inventory, on any patient (including an attacker admitted as a patient), an attacker can remotely manipulate any identical PCA pump on the "secure" wireless network. And as others have said, since these pumps generally dispense opioid pain killers, it would be trivial to kill most any patient attached to one.
What you're advocating is security by obscurity. Since this flaw is no longer obscure, the pump is no longer secure. Oh God, I'm channeling Johnny Cochran during the OJ trial.
