Maybe they'll split the difference and go with Vader Did Nothing Wrong.
I also know small bookshops. They are either on main railway stations and sell crappy bestsellers or - if they are located elsewhere - they sell more hipster apparel than books nowadays.
I can get wanting to protect something, but legally blocking something is just clinging to the past. I'll bet there used to be dozens of small buggy whip makers throughout France; too bad for them. It wasn't big business that killed them, it was technological progress. Now, if the people want to preserve the small shops, that's fine, they should shop at the small local shops. I sure do. I don't want to see video stores go extinct due to Netflix so I shop at mine, and I don't want to see book stores go away so I shop at my local bookstore. Just bought a book from them to start reading soon. But I'm not about to block anyone else from doing anything. The justification is understandable, but not sufficient. If the people of France really do not want free shipping, they can continue to shop at the small stores. If they do not, well, then I guess that shows what they really want.
Experts determined that the threat group targets servers storing corporate financial data, customer data and other sensitive information. A second payload downloaded by the malware then establishes a sophisticated C&C on the company's finance servers, enabling the attackers to exfiltrate the information they're after. The malware used by the Zombie Zero attackers is highly sophisticated and polymorphic, the researchers said. In one attack they observed, 16 of the 48 scanners used by the victim were infected, and the malware managed to penetrate the targeted organization's defenses and gain access to servers on the corporate network. Interestingly, the C&C is located at the Lanxiang Vocational School, an educational institution said to be involved in the Operation Aurora attacks against Google, and which is physically located only one block away from the scanner manufacturer, TrapX said.
very much so. and not only that, the hybrids are also fertile. same for endler's livebearers and guppies and sailfin x yucatan mollies. molly and guppy can also interbreed, although it doesn't happen that readily and the offspring is sterile.
To be honest, many Europeans feel the same way: UK should get out of EU. The sooner, the better.
platys and swordtails are different species and they interbreed without any hassle.
Because this kind of games is completely abstract.
Some kids actually manage to build something out of their ideas.
Look up "brakeforce one".
THTR was not experimental, it was a commercial power plant.
Even "proven" commercial power plants had their share of problems. And even today they are too expensive. Look what happens in Finland where they are trying to build a simple PWR for years and failing again and again.
Sorry, but this is bullshit.
First, nuclear never has produced the majority of electrical power in Germany so it most certainly wasn't the "source upon which they built the predominant economy". In fact, it was coal that did the job. Ruhr area's coal and steel industry fueled the German economic miracle.
Second, it was too expensive and too problematic. You really should look up what a massive failure THTR was (and AVR before that). Reprocessing also was way too expensive.
The difference between you - apparently an armchair atomic playboy - and the German anti nuclear activists is that the German ones actually know what they are talking about. Take Klaus Traube. He used to be a leading engineer and then CEO of the German AEG and US General Dynamics atomic energy division. He has been anti nuclear energy many years.
Germany had commercial nuclear power since the sixties. There is still no permanent waste repository here. Besides, Germany has invested a lot of money in nuclear power in the 80ies. It didn't work out. Thorium pebble bed reactors were a massive failure.
Besides, the German population doesn't want nuclear power.
Here is a pretty good explanation, why: http://www.worldpolicy.org/blo...
Corporate issues have no bearing on this. Newspapers, radio stations, and television stations are also for profit entities but forcing them to remove articles or broadcasts is also censorship, or does their corporate nature make them fair game too? This is actively obfuscating public information to censor it.
So to you freedom is telling other people what they can and can't say and what public information they can and can't access because the truth could be abused? From where I'm standing it looks like you're trying to tell me that censorship is freedom, and it sounds more than a little Orwellian to me.
