But a group of British and American skeptics say the Pope is being fed "mistaken" advice from the UN and that he should stick to speaking out on matters of morality and theology rather than getting involved in the climate change debate. "The Pope has great moral authority but he's not an authority on climate science. He's a learned man but the IPCC has got it wrong," says Jim Lakely of the Heartland Institute, a conservative American pressure group partly funded by billionaire industrialists who question climate change. "The Pope would make a grave mistake if he put his moral authority behind scientists saying that climate change is a threat to the world. Many scientists have concluded that human activity is a minor player. The Earth has been warming since the end of the last Ice Age."
It was the first time the Heartland Institute, which is based in Chicago and has been described by the New York Times as "the primary American organization pushing climate change skepticism," has traveled to Rome to try to influence a pope. "The sideshow envisioned by these organizations will not detract from the deep concern that Pope Francis has for the truth and how it relates to the environment," says Dr. Bernard Brady, Professor and Chair of the Theology Department at the University of St. Thomas. "Pope Francis will probably follow his predecessor, Benedict XVI, recognizing the interrelatedness of climate change with other moral issues and calling for persons, organizations, communities, nations, and indeed the global community, to reconsider established patterns of behavior."
Wait wait wiat... You mean mandatory minimum sentences are antithetical to common law? You mean that reason needs to be considered when delivering judgement? That MAYBE the giant overlord of the federal government doesn't know the right thing always in all cases!?
Wow. Imagine that.
you're replying to an anon. Either it was a troll, or it was you replying to yourself. OP is BS.
The "Religion of State" is just as much a religion as those you are maligning. It requires faith, has a common belief structure, and has a god. Bills like this fight against theocracy. You are pushing for it.
In the long run, I think this will be the only way digital currency becomes profitable.
I imagine giant server farms in Alaska, Canada, and Russia, all with liquid-cooled ASIC processors, keeping both the bitcoin network alive AND providing heat to their local communities. Win win.
It seems to me that the whole "Seam on Linux" thing is much ado about nothing. Aren't most Steam games just flash (or HTML5, maybe) applications, which have worked in linux forever? Maybe it's the whole payment system that's so wonderful? I just don't get the hype.

Does da Vinci get paid every time someone looks at the Mona Lisa? Why should Jagger get paid every time I want to hear "Jumpin Jack Flash?"
Let me get this straight. In order to exploit this vulnerability, an attacker must:
* gain login access to your system via SSH
* hope you turned on X11 forwarding
* be root or your user
* hope you've disabled access control with `xhost +`
* be able to run a fake screen locker program to get your password to the system he's already completely compromised
Yes, someone could still stop by your desk and put in the fake screen locker while you were getting coffee, but if you got up and didn't lock your machine, that's on you, not X11.
I'll file this one under "good enough" security.
> It's appalling how bitcoin evangelists still didn't understand the simple issue that makes Bitcoin impossible to work: Bitcoin has zero accountability.
Much unlike the systems of government-backed currency, where government employees who commit crime, cronyism, and fraud are always held accountable?
Bitcoin is a commodity, not a currency. Like gold, it's only worth what people will pay for it.
I use a little program called Referencer to manage images of bills and checks. I spent a
