Not sure what you expect from your government, but here in the USA we have a range of options, from bupkis, to the triad (personal savings, worker pension, social security, all of which were paid into), to whatever you can scrounge. If we can get the government to pay for anything beyond health care at 65, it would be both lucky and meager.
Yes - to phone calling and texting, we can now add real-time network analysis of the car to the list of dangerous distractions of the electronic kind.
Apparently this is a book about WWII approved by the NSA. I'm not surprised there is no new info here.
Let's hope Visa then sues Walmart for not paying a living wage or health benefits, forcing Visa, and everyone else, to subsidize the hundreds of thousands of Walmart employees with government services via higher taxes.
Seems like the NSA and CIA might be by nature beyond oversight. Their job includes assuming that the worst scenarios are possible, which then justifies any action to thwart them, including lying to their overseers in order to keep doing illegal things they think is necessary to prevent those worst possible scenarios. It's bureaucratic paranoia resulting in functional schizophrenia that makes sense within the hive mind but not within the greater public mind that employs them to keep us safe.
Next threshold: grateful for getting up in the morning.
Anticipate the convergence of the evolution in useful netlinked hardware with the growth of your target audience.
Shoot for One Google-Walker Per Senior.
But that's the point of this article. The Gov. did notice the surcharges on its bill and wants them removed. I wonder how long they were on hold before they got to talk with someone who would listen to their story, review the bill, and make a plan to remove the charges or not.
Interesting that there's no office or central representative that we could ask, "what does the [Tea, TEA] Party mean anyway? Can't even ask the people who are funding it. Some Party.
Speaking of "ground water", I believe the island is susceptible to high tides now and it (the island) is not getting any higher. A recent study (http://www.bcdc.ca.gov/planning/climate_change/TreasureIslandStudy.pdf) used 55" as a plausible/high level for sea level rise (SLR) by 2100. It rose 8 inches in the last 100 years, according to the same study. Plus the island is isolated as far as public transportation - perhaps people are looking to build in a place near SF that most people have trouble getting to?
Seems like a poor choice for a place to invest in the long term, if it's going to be underwater.
... and I thought, "Like Hari Seldon?"
How long before a software virus cripples a good amount of cars and brings "transportation to a halt"?
Cut my cord last year. At the rates they charge and the intermittent and barely-broadband service they provide, I can live without their content.
It's blatantly an attempt to control corporate regulations by holding hostage the definitions of acceptable research.
Is anyone going to address the NSA surveillance issue behind the law? It's pretty well established that they're sucking up every possible piece of information because their world view is based in maximum paranoia (if the other guys are capable of doing this, they're probably doing this). Yet their info-vacuum yields little to no results. If we judged their potential for abuse like they judge the world's threats, there would be no NSA. So what kind of intelligent intelligence agency do we rebuild the NSA and it's ilk into? Anyone? Boehner?
