Wyoming has the best politicians money can afford. It won't matter as kids get information from all over, so they will see this through this pretty quickly.

The words "American" and "security" cannot be used in the same sentence. There is nothing American that can be secure, just as there is nothing "American" and "Offshore Bank Account" that can ever be used in the same sentence. If you are American, then accept that you are bound to obey the Government, pay your taxes and deny climate change. It's the American way!
Anyone hiring an American to security audit code is either stupid or naive.
The code is being audited in America. That's pretty funny.
How about an audit in a country where the NSA cannot tell the auditors to shutup?
The woman promotes smoking e-cigarettes containing anti-freeze and nicotine. Anyone who smokes or promotes smoking should not give medical advice to others.
By European, you mean British. The British actually care about their language and how it is written. Some Americans, quite a few, are educated, erudite and worldly, but so many think that "All y'all" is an actual construct.
The long and short of it..we're buggered. Thankfully, we will all be dead when it gets really shitty. If you think that the countries of the world can band together to reduce emissions and turn to renewables, you are smoking the funny tobacco. I install solar in countries that have the highest electricity prices and the most sun, but they refuse to implement renewables, preferring that good old diesel products. People are inherently stupid, short sighted and greedy. Nothing but war and pestilence will cause change. Nothing else ever has.
Let's try to evaluate this in a non-partisan grown up way. By coding, Bloomberg is referring to America's move to eliminate all blue collar work by sending it abroad to China and Brazil, and to create great opportunities for academic pursuits, financial services and intellectual property. If there was a strong manufacturing sector, miners could be retrained to work in factories, with all the health benefits over mining, but those jobs got exported to make the multi-national companies richer and more powerful. Since large companies now own the American political process, all political efforts are concentrated on making the rich more rich at the expense of the working people.This doesn't end well.
It wasn't the coldest 6 months in the world, it was cold in America. There are some other countries in the world, though not as self important.
I followed the disaster as it happened on twitter and the news, and like everyone was shocked by the deaths. I find that the criticism of the workers and TEPCO who were put in the most awful of circumstances was disingenuous. How many organizations would have done better? Put yourself in the place of one of the workers on site; power is out, your family may be dead, the water has risen and swept away most of the town, and the reactors around you have cracked in the earthquake. You have no communication, you may be about to be radiated. Many of the workers were evacuated only to be sent back in. What bravery.
We never appreciate the people who face death and do their job.
Once you have a borehole, you can put a concentric injector pipe to pump the water down and recover the resulting steam around it. Steam from hot rocks is being done all over, but boring into molten magma is new.
Magma has a habit of oozing out of chambers once there is a path to the surface, and can't be stopped once it starts. The magma is full of CO2 at high pressure and once depressurized, releases the CO2 and expands rapidly. I wonder how they will ensure they do not start an eruption? I would think there would be a significant risk of starting another problem like the Sidoarjo mud flow http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S....
Additionally, Americans think the idea of moving to metric is stupid. No-one in the rest of the world wants American engineered products because everything is in old money.
I live in the Caribbean and buy engineering products from the USA and China. Exporting from the US is a pain. There are so many requirements implemented in the name of "Preventing Terrorism" and "keeping America Safe" that it is easier to buy from China. It seems the American Government is doing it's best to force everyone to buy from China instead of American manufacturers.
American companies do not know how to export. Ask any American company for a commercial invoice and they are lost. Customs requires one, so you would think they would figure it out. Try explaining you do not have a zip code.
Even though we have consolidation services, getting the required paperwork is more work than it is worth.
WIth Chinese companies, they will quote to deliver the product to your door, wherever you are.
"Government intervention should be a last resort" - in your opinion. Did it ever occur to you that your opinion is not written on stone tablets and given from the mountain tops?
Next thing the Government will want us to stop smoking, wear seatbelts and vaccinate our children against deadly diseases. Why do they think they know what is good for us?
"00000000 is just as random as any other code"
Except that you can lean on the button pad and enter it by mistake. Bye Bye world.
