The borked CSS for the account options makes it hard to check (although I can't obviously see the filters anywhere), but I'm pretty sure that I had polls disabled. Posting polls as stories seems to bypass that option.
FWIW, the Spanish-language version of the last link has much better pictures than the English-language version.
The "loophole" that Amazon has been using is nothing more than the EU single market, in all its glory, exactly as it was intended to be used.
When the EU and its predecessors were being set up, governments were all super keen to establish this sort of single market because they saw it as a way to allow their own home-grown champion companies to expand, by selling to people elsewhere on the continent.
You're contradicting yourself. Was the single market set up so that national companies could start selling to other EU countries with minimal red tape, or so that multinational companies could pick a country and negotiate with its tax authorities prior to setting up a "headquarters" which consists of a P.O. box? And if it was the latter, why is the Commission investigating whether the arrangements negotiated between various companies and the Luxembourgeois tax authorities constitute illegal state aid?
Here in Spain elections are always on Sunday. (In fact, we have elections tomorrow). However, I don't imagine that that would be very popular with certain constituencies in the southern U.S.
The headline exaggerates, anyway. The e-mail doesn't contain a Top-Secret "Brexit" Plan: merely the top-secret fact that the bank is going to be working on a "Brexit" plan. It's neither a surprise that they're doing this, nor a surprise that they want to keep it secret: the finance ministers of certain other European countries were already offended by the Bank of England having a Grexit plan.
You seem to have made the easy but very big mistake of believing Braveheart to be historical. There are some bits of history mixed into the plot to support the illusion, but there are also massive errors of fact, and that is one of them. (Don't get me started on the chronology...)
(I like the English "not proven" wording better)
It's only a side point, but for what it's worth that's a possible verdict under Scottish law, not under English.
The tree is willow, but I understood that Hippocrates used its bark rather than its leaves.
You give the impression of not having read more than the first sentence of the post you replied to.
US law should have absolutely no meaning for anyone outside the US. Why would an EU citizen expect US law to have any relevance at all?
Have you read Twitter's Terms of Service? Even the soon-to-come-into-effect version says that
I agree with you. Yet no need for the quotes around social 'scientists.' Psychologists, socialists, etc. employ the same experimental designs and mathematical techniques in experiments as doctors or others performing drug efficacy or medical outcome experiments, for example.
That sounds like an excellent reason to use scare quotes around "scientists". When only 25% of published biomedical results can be reproduced, that field needs to do work to justify the claim to be science as well.
The original word for the final evil in the box, elpis, has roughly the same range of meaning as the Spanish esperanza. Linguistically it's as likely that the thing which remained trapped in the box was expectation of evil as that it was hope, and if that's understood as foreknowledge of the evil that will befall you then it's both easy to see why Zeus (or Hesiod) would consider it worse than those which escaped and to hold the aetiology as consistent with the state of things which it's supposed to be explaining - whereas positive hope is clearly not outside the range of human experience.
TL;DR: Nietzsche is probably working with a bad translation of the Greek.
I would have thought that most of his Turkish friends would have a low opinion of him already for choosing a Greek handle.
