It's sad, it's ridiculously two-faced, but the sad truth is in the USA people in cars / trucks kill cyclists quite often -- and seldom are charged. Even rarer is for an alleged "motorist" to get jail time for it.
I'd hate to be the guy a) pitching this operation at the change control meeting, and b) the guy signing off on this change.
Global Thermonuclear War.
I'll even face the brilliant flash of light and light my last cigar with it. *FOOM!*
It's a good question. I really want a take-anywhere tablet in the 7-8" range, with 2GB RAM, at least 32GB onboard storage, micro SD support, LTE, a 1920x1200 or better display, and a stylus.
This actually has all that, but it sacrifices weight and battery life to provide terrific graphics performance - which I don't really care about at all. (I play games on Android, but mostly Kairosoft games and Final Fantasy, which are not particularly taxing.)
But it's by no means a bad device, and if Nvidia can refine it through another couple of iterations, and get it to a point where the extra graphics performance doesn't cost much in terms of weight/battery life/dollars, then they might really have something.
You are not really looking at the entire picture.
It starts with some people trying to convince Ukraine to distance itself from Russia and become more European friendly. When the elected president decides to stick with Russia, all the sudden he is a crook and needs removed from office.
Except for the minor fact that he was a crook the entire time. If you want to talk about the entire picture.
What about my right to search?
There is no such right, except in your imagination.
Freedom of association.
And quite frankly speaking, for the cases this law is intended for (let's not focus only on the abuses, as most idiot journalists do because it makes for better headlines), the right of an individual to not have their life ruined by, say, completely made-up allegations of child abuse and rape quite clearly trumps your right of finding false and misleading information.
That would be libel, and is adequately covered by existing laws. Excessively covered in the UK.
It doesn't matter if the information is a matter of public record.
Yeah, it kind of does. Striking something from the public record is state-sponsored censorship, and that not only leads to evil, it's an evil in and of itself.
"One, Two, Three, Four, Five, Six, Seven, Eight, Nine, Ten, Eleven, TWELVE BLADES!"
Immediately followed by "Mixture on, SWITCH ON!"
There is no crime in war. War has no law.
Tell that to Peter von Hagenbach, was was convicted and executed for war crimes in 1474 . He even offered the "only following orders" excuse.
Regardless, if you want to morally judge the actions of both sides here, Israel comes out looking far, far worse.
I'm not morally judging actions, I'm legally judging actions. Hamas is deliberately and systematically committing war crimes as defined by international law.
More than 500 Palestinians dead and climbing and you say Israel is trying to minimise casualties? Do you seriously expect people to believe that?
Absolutely, yes. If Israel were actually out to cause casualties, rather than to prevent them, the death toll would be enormous. If they were merely careless of civilian casualties, the death toll would not only be higher, it would be statistically correlated with the demographics of the Palestinian people, with deaths of women, children, and the elderly roughly in proportion to the size of those groups in the general population.
Instead, the Palestinian death statistics are massively skewed towards males aged 18-38. That can't happen if you're killing civilians either deliberately or carelessly. But it's exactly what you'd see if you were carefully targeting enemy combatants.
Israel has never shown themselves to be ready for peaceful coexistence
That is quite simply untrue. Israel has shown that consistently for decades.
Peaceful co-existence doesn't mean there won't be disagreements. Even closely allied nations disagree with one another all the time. It means there won't be war.
I(and neither has Hamas).
That, at least, is true. Hamas is dedicated to the destruction of Israel; it's stated explicitly in their charter.
Of course, if you put an entire people inside an area more akin to the ghetto of Warsaw then a real country. An area with an insanely high population density an almost no way in our out for armed forces of their own the what did you expect really?
I expect Israel would gladly hand the Gaza Strip back to Egypt at this point. It doesn't seem that Egypt wants it back.
