The only assumption you should be making is that nothing is secure.
Seriously? I want my delivery to go to where I tell the vendor to send it, period. I don't need deliveries interrupting me when I am working. Send it to my home.
Right. Because helping further the Victorian Era sexual repression that's ingrained in our culture is a good thing. Hint: it's not. No, we don't need to go overboard with it. That being said, not so long ago 14 year olds were getting married and having children. Get over your sexual repression and just grow the fuck up.
And part of growing up is learning to not let the comments, jokes, and snickers get you. Stop being an apologist for stupidity.
For FitzRoy the forecasts were a by-product of his storm warnings. As he was analyzing atmospheric data anyway, he reasoned that he might as well forward his conclusions — fine, fair, rainy or stormy — on to the newspapers for publication. "Prophecies and predictions they are not," he wrote, "the term forecast is strictly applicable to such an opinion as is the result of scientific combination and calculation." The forecasts soon became a quirk of this brave new Victorian society. FitzRoy's forecasts had a particular appeal for the horseracing classes who used the predictions to help them pick their outfits or lay their bets.
But FitzRoy soon faced serious difficulties. Some politicians complained about the cost of the telegraphing back and forth. The response to FitzRoy's work was the beginning of an attitude that we reserve for our weather forecasters today. The papers enjoyed nothing more than conflating the role of the forecaster with that of God and the scientific community were skeptical of his methods. While the majority of fishermen were supportive, others begrudged a day's lost catch to a mistaken signal. FitzRoy retired from his west London home to Norwood, south of the capital, for a period of rest but he struggled to recover and on 30 April 1865 FitzRoy cut his throat at his residence, Lyndhurst-house, Norwood, on Sunday morning. "In time, the revolutionary nature of FitzRoy's work would be recognised," says Moore. "FitzRoy's vision of a weather-prediction service funded by government for the benefit of its citizens would not die. In 1871, the United States would start issuing its own weather "probabilities", and by the end of the decade what was now being called the Met Office would resume its own forecasts in Britain."
Report says doctors, teachers and nurses least at risk. Accountants, cashiers and admin workers most at risk.
Strangely, DBAs reported not at risk. Let's hope they're wrong. Thankfully, real estate sales are at risk.
It's a new economic revolution similar in scale to the industrial revolution. It is happening now thanks to all those nice computer folk allowing computers to make sense out of senses after failing for the previous sixty or seventy years. The Age of Perception, if you like.

They have some but not total radiation shielding. Such shielding is very heavy and thus very expensive to put into orbit.
That's what King Solomon would do.
I never said it was an argument I agreed with. It is just the argument I often hear from sin tax proponents.
I didn't say it was *my* argument. Read carefully. I was just pointing out the argument that is often used.
The argument is along the lines of the fact that smoking, obesity, etc. have a direct cost to society. From lost productivity to higher healthcare costs, unhealthy lifestyle choices do have a real cost to others who share the planet.
Opportunist is referring to the fact that bad guys will pay many times more than that for a 0 day remote execution bug.
It reminds me of those 'That's now how this works. That's not how any of this works' commercials.
Both my scientific curiosity and my desktop backgrounds thank you.
