One such project that focuses on R&D into detecting, avoiding and withstanding IEDs is JIEDDO. Joint (as in, multiple branches of military) IED Defeat Organization. Worked on it for a while, they have very smart people working on that program, trying to save peoples lives every day.

Except that it wouldn't be rape in that case. Rape in most modern legal systems has a very well-defined, specific meaning which includes factors that contribute to the rapists intent and actions. While I am not an expert on Swedish or International Law, it doesn't seem logical that a progressive country like Sweden would allow such a claim to stand. Also, please understand that I'm not saying that in this hypothetical case, that the person who was HIV+ was in the right. In some states in the US, sexual contact with someone without informing them of your HIV status (if you know or suspect you are HIV+) is a very serious crime.

Their is indeed a national focus (mandate, really) to implement DNSSEC on all internal DNS mechanisms in the .GOV domain by some arbitrary date. Unfortunately, it's one of those famous Bush unfunded mandates. A deadline with checkpoints and costs, but no money to cover those costs. I'm working at one of those 3-letter-agencies that is helping lead the way on DNSSEC in the government space, but their is SO MUCH RED TAPE and so little time to negotiate it.

Many people are unenthusiastic about their work.
