They do operate it as a 24/7 operation. However, at night time there are less planes in the sky, so each traffic controller is given a bigger area to work on and there are fewer of them on duty. During day time, these areas are subdivided into smaller areas and more controllers are brought on-line to work on the larger number of areas. It was this switch-over that failed.
Yes, that is what I am trying to say.
In terms of actual EU courts, we have the EU General Court, but that only has competence to hear cases against the EU itself. For example, if the European Patent Office refuses to grant your patent application, you can go there to appeal your decision, or if the EU competition authority thinks you are behaving in an anti-competitive manner, you will face trial in that court.
Most other cases involving EU law are heard in national courts, with the European Court of Justice as the final court of appeal. Generally speaking, judgements in national courts are binding only in that country, but persuasive elsewhere in the EU. ECJ judgements are binding in the whole of the EU. The exception is cases involving copyrights, patents, trademarks and registered designs (known as design patents in the US). For those cases, the national court sits as an EU court, and judgements are binding throughout the EU. Another exception is the EU small claims procedure, where consumers can take cases against suppliers in other EU countries in their local court, and the local court will work the the court local to the supplier to sort out the dispute. Small claims cases are not legally binding, but can be appealed to the European Court of Justice, who's judgements are legally binding.
I don't know what the Ottawa app is like, but the Transport for London App will list the different routes available, the number of changes, how many minutes you will have to wait for the next bus, train etc to turn up, approximately how long it will take and the estimated time of arrival. Sometimes for example, there is a bus that will take you there with no changes, but takes ages because the traffic is bad, or you can go by rail which is faster, but you have to change. If I'm tired and carrying loads of heavy stuff, I'll take the bus. If I'm in a rush, I'll go by rail.
The German court is a European court when it hears patent cases, therefore the ruling does apply all over the EU. We don't have the same separation between State and Federal courts that they have in the USA.
This ruling is valid across the whole of the EU. When local courts hear patent cases, they sit as European courts.
It covers long filename support in FAT. Digital cameras that stored photos with 8.3 filenames were never affected by this patent regardless of which version of FAT they used.
The restaurant app needs to phone home with the location data in order to get the list of nearby restaurants. Once it is on their server, what they do with it is outwith your control, but restaurants will probably pay a referral based commission so they will need to have details of where people use their apps for that purpose.
No. Most of the trade was in tulip futures rather than actual tulip bulbs.
I have in my car. It has a stop-start engine so turns itself off completely when I stop at traffic lights etc, and also regenerative brakes. If I am going down a hill slowly in stop-start traffic, I sometimes don't bother to put the engine back on, and just let gravity take me down the hill. The brakes become much harder to operate as soon as the engine goes off, because the regenerative breaking doesn't work.
On my VW Up, if I push the break pedal a little bit, it activates the regenerative breaking system. If I push it down really hard, it activates the manual hydraulic break pads.
Of course. That's why the requirement for passports was introduced. Previously they had to sit in quarentine for about 6 months before being allowed into the country.
Animals do need to have passports to be allowed into the country. In that respect, it is a passport by the common definition. It also records its medial history, and depending on the type of animal, the passport must show that it has been inspected by a vet a certain number of days before it arrives at the border and in some cases has received certain types of medication.
Shareholders pay death duties on the value of their shares when they die, so they get the money that way.
You may laugh, but recently in the UK, a couple of cows were put down because they didn't have passports.
