I think what we (the consumers and people concerned with lock-in) should be pushing for is the ability to go back to older versions of iOS on devices that we own. If every story about this failure mentioned that people who try the new version are locked in without the ability to go back to a working version, maybe Apple would cave.

If the little red line is south of your location, you might see something (assuming northern hemisphere). So far no love for the lower 48.
"Now, those beliefs could land him in serious trouble."
Hammond is not in trouble because of his beliefs. He is free to have beliefs and advocate for change. Instead of building and making, he destroyed and discredited his ideas.
Comparing the intelligence and genes of those who did and did not survive to 90 would also be interesting.
Yes, high taxes could be used to build a quality school system and good infrastructure to make life better.
Or it could be spent to buy votes and enrich the politically connected. Rochester school district does spend $15,614 per a pupil. Way above the national average. http://www.newyorkschools.com/districts/rochester-city-school-district.html What does that buy? Good pay for political powerful unions members. The district was very proud that in 2010 the graduation rate was 46.1%, up from 42.1%
Throwing money does in its self make it a better place. Outputs are what is important.
I am personally getting ready to start a business with my PhD research. The high taxes

2) If this study actually significantly contradicts our knowledge of global heating, why has it been published in Remote Sensing, and not a more reputable journal?
Tell me what do you think the phrase "Remote Sensing" refers to?
I'm guessing that you are confusing it with "Remote Viewing."
Sounds like it was hard to published it on its merits alone. The last line of the paper is a bit cryptic.
"The project was funded privately by Lottolab Studio, as the referees argued that young people cannot do real science."
What does the funding source have to do with the referees' prejudices? Was some extra funding needed to resolve their concerns?
Personally, I am going to look for an excuse to cite their paper.
When we were kids we couldn't afford science kits. We just had to play with gun powder, gasoline, matches and plastic models. And we liked it.

There is another station 3 to 4 miles away on RIT campus and another one at the GM facility.
About a year ago the dispenser listed the price as being $1 per GGE. I assume that was a subsidized price. Unfortunately it did not take regular credit cards only cards issued specifically for the station.
