they burn a little too well, remember at a friend's apartment we suddenly had roaring flames coming out the top of the chimney with just a few pallet boards. we doused that in a hurry, "stack fire" in a 200 unit apartment building wouldn't be good.
Pretty sure lots of the people that would have come back from the war to do that work, wound up getting an education, and becoming lawyers and bureaucrats.
It is a result of the stupid and outdated firewall model of "Trust/Untrust/DMZ" when applied nearly anywhere.
Modern production networks should be firewalling everything from everything else. Nothing should be on the "Trusted" side. Get something like an SSG-140 and load it up with a bunch of 8 port cards which will give you 42 ports and 42 zones for things to talk to. That way you can allow the CNC machine to talk to its support site for its update but it can't ever talk to the laser cutter or other CNC machines.
The sad thing is the SSG is EOL and I don't know anyone else that makes a low cost multi-port firewall and most switches with firewall capability just don't do proper intrusion detection and malware detection.
Maybe, just maybe, if the USPS wasn't required to prepay the retirement benefits for employees who haven't even been born yet (and their children who may become postal workers), they'd be able to make a profit. That wasn't mentioned in the article you referenced. My guess is that providing the reader of that little tidbit of information would interfere with their "USPS = inefficient govt. agency" narrative.
You don't consider Lawyers the Ultimate Special Interest ?
What am I cheering for Exxon ?
If they were suing an Attorney general for being in the pocket of greenpeace sure I would cheer.
I'd also cheer if they were suing federal officials for promoting the insane gasahol program or cellolosic ethanol programs that have been nothing less than completely counterproductive.
I'd also cheer if they were suing over the sandbagging of the building of new refineries.
The Mariana Trench — located in the Western Pacific near Guam — has been the focus of high-profile voyages to conquer Challenger Deep, the deepest place on Earth. This recent expedition to the Trenchonboard Research Vessel Falkor targeted multiple depths and found active thriving communities of animals. The expedition set many new records, including the deepest rock samples ever collected and the discovery of new fish species at the greatest depths ever recorded.
New species were discovered on this expedition that will provide insight into the physiological adaptations of animals to this high-pressure environment. This research is being conducted in the lab of Whitman College'sProfessor of Biology Paul Yancey. In the past, Yancey and his students, working on animals from moderate depths, discovered certain organic molecules that protect the cells of deep-sea animals from the effects of high pressure, which distorts proteins such as enzymes. These kinds of protective molecules are also being tested to treat human diseases that are caused by malformed proteins, such as cystic fibrosis. Additionally, his work on protective molecules in fishes predicted that fish would not be able to live below about 8,200 meters (27,060 feet). Prior to this expedition, the deepest documented fish was from 7,700 meters (25,410 feet).
The expedition also broke several records for the deepest living fish either caught or seen on video. Setting the record at 8,143 meters, (26,872 feet) was a completely unknown variety of snail fish, which stunned scientists when it was filmed several times during sea floor experiments. The white translucent fish had broad wing-like fins and an eel-like tail, and slowly glided over the bottom."

in many countries, it has decreased. Only in the stupid ones workers are working harder and harder for less and less money and benefits.
We do have corporate fascism in the United States, 95% the candidates in federal elections are in the pockets of large corporation, and thus in most cases voting doesn't matter at the federal level to effect any change

A primeval volcanic range in western India known as the Deccan Traps, which were once three times larger than France, began its main phase of eruptions roughly 250,000 years before the Cretaceous-Paleogene, or K-Pg, extinction event, the researchers report in the journal Science. For the next 750,000 years, the volcanoes unleashed more than 1.1 million cubic kilometers (264,000 cubic miles) of lava. The main phase of eruptions comprised about 80-90 percent of the total volume of the Deccan Traps’ lava flow and followed a substantially weaker first phase that began about 1 million years earlier.
The results support the idea that the Deccan Traps played a role in the K-Pg extinction, and challenge the dominant theory that a meteorite impact near present-day Chicxulub, Mexico, was the sole cause of the extinction. The researchers suggest that the Deccan Traps eruptions and the Chicxulub impact need to be considered together when studying and modeling the K-Pg extinction event.
The general public might not know it, but the only ones in the field of dinosaur research that have said the asteroid was the sole cause of the extinction have been planetary scientists."

In a Tor blog post (https://blog.torproject.org) project leader Roger "arma" Dingledine said an unnamed group may seize Tor's directory authority servers before the end of next week. These servers distribute the official lists of relays in the network, which are the systems that route users' traffic around the world to obfuscate their internet connections' public IP addresses."
