just posting to undo a mistaken mod.
But the nature of combat is constantly changing. Ground troops are still important but their role is going to become less important over time. In the future there will be robots used in certain roles where ground troops are used now. The drone operators and cyber warriors will eventually be the main role.
But I doubt they're going to give the robots medals for it, it's not as if they can lose their life. As I stated, giving a medal to a drone pilot is one thing, ranking it higher than a medal given for having an actual presence in combat is a whole different issue.
If you want to give out a medal for flying a drone, fine, I don't have a huge problem with it as long as you're great at it. What really irritates me and a lot of other service members is it's ranking in the 'order of precedence'. What I've read is it ranks above some combat medals, specifically the Bronze Star, which is really pissing off the 'boots on the ground' troops and I don't blame them for being mad.
When I did urine drug screens for the CHP at my lab, one recruit's sample was refused. He said they called him and said to do it again, it was too diluted.
"Should the TV owner choose not to use these features, the camera and microphone can be disabled. Users can check if the camera and microphone are activated from the TV’s settings menu. As an added precaution, the camera can be rotated and tucked into the bezel of the TV. Once tucked away, the camera only captures a black image."
"...at a venue with a large number of people and relatively little security. A concert. A sports game. In the unsecured portion of an airport.
yet those venues aren't broadcast live around the world like the superbowl. Terrorists would love to have that kind of an audience. Of course I don't believe in the FUD that our government and many others try to cram down our throats at every opportunity, but it would make a very valuable target to terrorists.
I’m born and raised in Boston, I know the people who run the city inside and out, watch the way you talk to people, you never know who they know, it’s a small industry and everyone knows everyone.
To me that sentence is claiming he knows people in the gaming industry (although also a lie) and not really the Mafia. As far as Mafia in Boston, they were there when I left in 1987 and I'm pretty sure they still are, just not as big as they once were.
