What you needed was a CAB CAB to maintain the change procedure process document. And then, of course the CAB CAB CAB to maintain the change procedure document change procedure process document.

They might need to lay off their production people to afford another layer of CAB or two, but that's OK, with the constant change in the change procedure change procedure, none of them knew what they were supposed to be doing anymore anyway,.

That's not the big leagues, that's the short bus.

yes, changes need to be documented. They should be deployed on a test server before going into production. The rest is just people who were presumably traumatized by falling out of a tree as a child seeking revenge.

Take the people in the CAB and replace them with extra admins who are bright enough to know what I said in the 2nd paragraph.

The lawful means to address the issue is to tell a teacher. The recording itself showed that the teacher already knew and was entirely ineffective in dealing with the problem (even to the point you could argue that the teacher was being bullied a bit).

I sincerely doubt that could be the very first time a teacher or administrator saw the problem.

Considering the way the police used every dirty tactic in the book to break up OWS including sending in agents who tried to incite them to illegal activities, perhaps they should have been carrying weapons. Had they done that, some of the crooks on Wall Street might actually have been brought to justice by now.

mdsolar (1045926) writes ""A federal appeals court on Tuesday upheld regulations adopted by the Environmental Protection Agency to cut mercury and other emissions from large power plants, a setback for states and energy trade groups that have been challenging Clean Air Act regulations during the Obama administration.

The decision by a three-judge panel at the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit means that coal- and oil-fired plants must purchase scrubbers and other equipment to prevent 91 percent of mercury from being released into the air during the burning of coal.... The Department of Energy forecasts that capacity retirements will reach 60,000 [megawatts]""
