One would hope they've got a belt-and-suspenders attitude there, as stickers sometimes do dry out and fall off; people sometimes put stickers on wrong; and having one's auxiliary diesel generators fail can be embarassing.

"Nothing like this will be built again"
I've just had a really amazing experience: a guided tour of the nuclear reactor complex at Torness on the Scottish coast.
Someone, some day, will make a digital camera the size of a 35mm film cassette, with a pullout sensor the size of a 35mm film strip that fits over the sprockets on the film plane of the good film cameras. Make it Bluetooth or wifi-controllable. For the viewfinder-impaired, put a display driver on the takeup reel side and a stick-on display on the back; reinterpret the film advance lever action. The utterly obvious stuff.
Why not yet? We don't *ing* need disposable cameras, and there are plenty of good robust ones that will last another century.
OK. It won't be soon; I'll ask again when I've got the stuff together and have time to try that.
I don't own an IOS or Android device.
I have a Palm OS PDA (Clie) with a camera.
I have a digital camera.
I have a few Macs and Linux and Windows machines.
I have lots and lots of books.
What do I need most, and how do I do this?
This was forced on NASA as a pork barrel money grant by the Republican senators, and this isn't news.

Did these academics even cite the FAQ?
Oboy. Do we finally have something that can make a big sphere strong enough and light enough that when pumped to a vacuum it will work as a lifting body?
Not to mention, strong enough to make a deep sea diving bell strong enough that it won't crush?
Same principle. Oh please
.... a review with praise in Common Dreams, a self-identified "Progressive" website, about the surprise winner in Virginia's Republican primary:
"... Republican Dave Brat, a college economics professors who spoke about GOP hypocrisy and railed against Wall Street greed, unseated House Majority Leader Eric Cantor in a primary challenge.
âoeAll of the investment banks, up in New York and D.C., they should have gone to jail.â
The national media is buzzing about Bratâ(TM)s victory, but for all of the wrong reasons...."
The media will talk about anything except the real problem
Look, if Ben Franklin had understood this "electricity" thing better, he'd have defined the Post Office program -- that allowed "a Republic, if you can keep it" to work, by putting every citizen within equal reach of every other citizen -- to include it explicitly.
That's Article I, Section 8, Clause 7 of the United States Constitution, that gave us the Post Office.
In his day, they did it with horses.
Now, we do it with electronics.
Same difference. Ought to be the same anyhow.
You'll find the same problem mentioned by flashlight modders (candlepowerforums.com, budgetlightforums.com) -- some multi-level lights have quite annoying PWM.

Got nothing? Think again. Think harder.
Congratulations, you are excludable from the jury, as he may only be tried by a jury of his peers.
Still no clear idea what can be learned by applying modern pattern analysis to that data set?
You're not one of his peers. Excused
We already know that's the case for antibiotics. And we know plants compete with one another by suppressing competitors' growth.
Seems to me Thomas's comment is intended to add a loophole -- "we created this cDNA and patented it, so we have the patent, so if you claim you found the exact same thing out there in nature somewhere, it must be you stole it from us." Betcha.
The Future of Antibiotics and Resistance
Brad Spellberg, M.D., John G. Bartlett, M.D., and David N. Gilbert, M.D.

"... after billions of years of evolution, microbes have most likely invented antibiotics against every biochemical target that can be attacked — and, of necessity, developed resistance mechanisms to protect all those biochemical targets. Indeed, widespread antibiotic resistance was recently discovered among bacteria found in underground caves that had been geologically isolated from the surface of the planet for 4 million years.2 Remarkably, resistance was found even to synthetic antibiotics that did not exist on earth until the 20th century. These results underscore a critical reality: antibiotic resistance already exists, widely disseminated in nature, to drugs we have not yet invented.
"Thus, from the microbial perspective, all antibiotic targets are “old” targets...."
