AT&T's contracts prohibit filing a class action suit against them and the Supreme Court backed them on it on the basis of the ancient Federal Arbitration Act. See AT&T Mobility v. Concepcion.
What addon is this?
GOES 13 went down in September of 2012, then came back online sometime (CBA to find the exact date) in October and was used to monitor Sandy (in parallel with GOES 14). Now it's broken again.
Still too low. 1 sucker born per second would result in only about 24% of people being suckers.
If cold fusion were invented tomorrow everything changes...
True. I for one would be worried about getting hit by one of those flying pigs.
The owner shuffling of the Press Gazette (who runs the awards) through the 90s, then them going out of business in 2006 and than being bought and remade (this is where I was pulling the PB comparison) in 2006, then sold yet again in 2009.
The "3 years" bit was me looking at the site and only seeing awards dating back to 2009 (apparently they redid the site with the last change of ownership and didn't bother bringing the old records with them) and was an error on my part.
Someone out there is gonna hear that "Vitamin C kills TB" on the interwebs and OD on it, sooner or later.
ODing on vitamin C would take some doing. The predicted LD50 is about 12 grams per kilogram. You'd be more likely to die from choking on it than from ODing on it.
2. And? Despite Conservative claims, there were very few (as in barely-breaks-two-digits) complaints about it.
5. You have a funny definition of "fact". Pipelines spill more than twice as much oil (per amount transported) as railroads do.
Saying the current Press Awards were established in 1970 is about as accurate as saying that Packard Bell, seller of cheap crappy computers in North America, was established in 1933.
Some, yes, but Harper and Flaherty were already running the country into a deficit (From a surplus when they got elected) before the economic issues came along.
Wow! Awards from an organization that has been going for a whole 3 years. That's certainly a long-standing respected organization.
or c) The people who own it don't give a crap about the long term because they need to meet the numbers for next quarter and collect their bonus or because by the time the problem shows up, they'll have already got their money and buggered off to the Bahamas.
How do you make decisions in a country without data to base it on?
Easy. You just use your policy. Not having that annoying conflicting evidence cluttering things up saves you time as you don't need to bother with policy-based evidence making and can just plow ahead.
Ummmm... and if the attack originates in a highly distributed bot-net?
Then you use more tomahawks, obviously.
What about the script-kiddie is on US soil?
Then you send in the drones.
No, it's really the NRMA. National Rifle Manufacturers Association. But they liked having a three letter initalism instead.
