Sorry to be pedantic, but unless I missed it, you pointed out only potentially factual errors in the original, not any logical fallacies. So while it certainly raises some questions, it does not "beg" any in your example. (Though I think a thorough analysis of TFA's original premise could find some petitio principii in the author's logic.)
In English, an adverb is a word that modifies a verb or adjective.
As an example of modifying an adjective: "He was very tired."
He - noun (subject)
was - verb
very - adverb (modifying 'tired')
tired - adjective (specifically a predicate adjective
As an example of modifying a verb: "Danielle quickly ran to the corner."
Danielle - noun (subject)
quickly - adverb (modifying 'ran')
to - preposition
the - definite article
corner - noun (the object of the preposition in this case)
So to borrow from your first instance: "His murders were clearly terrorism."
His - possessive pronoun
murders - noun (subject)
were - verb
clearly - adverb (modifying 'were')
terrorism - predicate nominative, a special use case for nouns (not an adverb)
The easiest way to identify an adverb is to ask what the word modifies. If it modifies a noun (a blue sweater, where blue is describing the sweater), it's an adjective. If it modifies an adjective (a very blue sweater) or a verb (a sweater permanently dyed blue), it's an adverb. (One can often identify verb-modifying adverbs by looking for the suffix -ly: quick -> quickly, intelligent -> intelligently.) Though the constructions of the latter sentences are more complex, none of those examples you cite are actually adverbs: they are all adjectives in some form. Terror, terrorist, and terrorism are all nouns. There is actually no adverbal form of terrorism that I'm aware of. The closest I can think of is "terrifyingly".
This raises an interesting question: is there a suitable replacement for blackberry for the enterprise yet? None of the phones systems/solution I've seen have anything resembling the BES (Blackberry Enterprise Server) and encryption for email, etc. What will be the successor to BB in the enterprise?
So very true. I thank the heavens every day for the crack scene - I have original games from the mid-1980s which would be unplayable if it weren't for THG, RAZOR 1911, and others like them. I probably spend at least $100 on games per month, but I won't put my money into any title until a crack is available. EA, Blizzard, and other companies have lost thousands - perhaps even tens of thousands - of dollars of my money because of their godawful DRM, and the problem is only getting worse. Starcraft II, Diablo 3, and now SimCity, for instance - all are games I would have loved to play, but only when they're unencumbered.
And don't get me started on steam or battle.net, either. I don't rent games!
I use the Developer Tools add-on for Firefox. Under "miscellaneous", there's a "linearize page" option. Works wonders for most sites, especially places like flickr.
I was able to verify that mine was a unique case, and that only email addresses were compromised for everyone else.
Well it seems I may have spoken too soon - they called me today. They explained what happened (it was a vendor who leaked) and gave me a very thorough recounting of what happened. Their timing could have been better, but they did follow through. The InfoSec person I talked to was very knowledgeable, friendly, and professional. While I have some spam I'll have to deal with, they're trying hard to make things right. Overall, I'm pretty impressed.
Filed, thanks very much for the link.
It's funny (in a sad way) - three or four of the initial questions in the report asked if I had contacted a credit reporting agency to let them know my data had been compromised. At the top of every list was Equifax.
And the company who was breached? The ones who leaked my SSN?
I spoke with one of their InfoSec guys on the phone. They have my phone number, and they know that I know that my personal information was compromised. There's no excuse for not keeping me apprised, at the very least.
I had exactly the same issue as the OP this past week, but with a Fortune 1000 company whose business model revolves around collecting and selling information about people.
I contacted their information security department, and sent them the emails and headers at their request. I haven't heard from them since.
The problem is that not only did I get emails to an address that only that company has; my social security number was also in the emails. So whoever got the emails got much more personal information as well. It's clearly a case where the company should be disclosing that they had a breach. If they don't, I'm going public with what I've got.
These companies have a responsibility to the people whose information they hold.
The FCC FAQ mentions only that if you are told by a wireless carrier or the FCC that your device is interfering with a mobile network, you must turn it off. It says nothing about doing so preemptively.
I'm glad I looked around before responding. This is pretty much exactly what I wanted to write. If I had any mod points right now, they'd be yours.
Opera has always either been the first or the first to do it right. Hands down.
You're not kidding. Opera's Multi-Document Interface (MDI) was the first foray into tabbed browsing nearly three years before anyone else.
