With regard to her Husband: He would have been convicted and jailed as a sexual predator if he had been the executive of a private corporation.

With regard to your comment, you are a fucking moron. Consensual sex between two legal adults = sexual predator??? Also, private corporations cannot convict and imprison an employee. CEO's don't even necessarily lose their job when they violate corporate bylaws, if he/she properly fixed the board. Sexual harrassment suits are settled in CIVIL court; no jail time. And finally, this is slashdot. You're not inciting outrage from the female community, because its miniscule in size. You're just demonstrating your cluelessness.

Her emails almost certainly contain nothing incriminating. She is a smart women that has a lot of experience dealing with scandals and knows exactly what not to do.

Actually, I'm guessing Hilary did the private email setup to conceal her communications vis a vis her husband cutting deals for his foundation, and what she directed state department personnel to do afterwards. If she "really" was a smart woman with a lot of experience dealing with scandals, she wouldn't have been running a private email server at her home. It alone should be a strike against voting for her as POTUS; the problem is we don't know who's going to roll out of the Republican clown car for the general election.

What deletions? Its all backed up on NSA harddrives; everyone knows this. The NSA has no methods to hide, in this case. There isn't going to be any felony prosecution for hiding email, or for Benghazi. What I'm waiting for is a Hilary quid pro quo for her globe trotting, schmoozing husband.

That's precious. There's no way Sanders wins the Democrat nomination for POTUS, even if Hillary gets knocked out of the race. The Powers That Be would smother Sanders with campaign spending against him before that point.

Keep in mind the NSA is the same organisation that should, and probably did, know about the planned 11 September 2001 attacks in the United States of America but refused to share the intelligence with any other government agency or department.

You're an idiot. GWB was warned in august in the National Security briefing. He decided to ignore the memo.

Why was the embassy in a hostile country left undefended in the middle of a riot?

You're an idiot. The answer is "sequestration".

No one with an ounce of common sense gives a rat fuck about Libya. Foreign service personnel die all the time on the job; just like soldiers do in a war zone.

No, the time bomb I'm looking for is if Hilary did a quid pro quo on behalf of her schmoozing, globe-trotting husband.

I'm sick of seeing Hilary as an election trojan horse for the Democrats. I'll be glad if the DoJ launches an investigation on emailgate. If they find something that kills her candidacy, best do it before the Democrat National Convention. If not, there's no chance any Republican in the clown car will beat Hilary.

Doctors talk to each other all the time about their patients.

Doctors are expected to understand confidentiality. Now they just can't provide information on their "triage evaluation" on a specific patient. That triage secrecy would only last for a week tops; the surgery in most cases would be complete by then. We're just trying to prevent "gaming" the system by avoiding low survival percentage patients before a surgeon commits to a patient. Once they're "locked in", they can talk to the triage doctor as much as they like.

1) Have a different doctor triage the patient, standardize the criteria, keep the evaluation secret. Strip privileges from doctor that leaks evaluations, and/or fine hospitals for staff caught revealing evaluations.
2) Initially round robin assign the patient to the surgeon pool. If the surgeon declines the patient, keep going to the "pool". If all available surgeons reject patient, null the evaluation value, randomly assign to available surgeon. Add death panel criteria to reject operating on patient.
3) Change the formula to give "more points" to more difficult surgeries.
4) The end result should focus on "doctors that lose the most patients that should "survive" the operation". Add extra penalty points for medical inquests (triggered by lawsuit) that determine the doctor/staff goofed for the final weighted score.
5) Optionally allow publicly available tiered ratings.

Did you, or did Windows do that to you?

I did, using the Windows partition tool in the "advanced" disk management menu.

Yesterday's update of Windows 10 delete the Linux partition on my toy computer.

That will probably become news on Phoronix or The Register, if that's the case. I'm inclined to beleive you're either mistaken, or something other than a Windows 10 update did that.

CURRENTLY, the Greek economy doesn't work without infusions, because of its ridiculous debt, and profligate public sector spending. Greece goes drachma, and eventually it can rebuild its economy to the point some foreign bank would be able to lend it money. The bottom line is that the IMF and EUCB will have to take a hit on its loans, and if they're unreasonable, they're going to lose close to 100% of it.

Greece is not going to raise taxes on its cargo ships, unless it agrees to let an EUCB agency take over its taxation and dictates any federal spending. And I don't think Greece's shipping infrastructure is that significant. The largest cargo ship capacity comes from Panama, Liberia, and some other countries.

Some people manage by the book, even though they don't know who wrote the book or even what book.
