On December 4, 1981 President Ronald Reagan signed Executive Order 12333, an Executive Order intended to extend powers and responsibilities of US intelligence agencies and direct the leaders of U.S. federal agencies to co-operate fully with CIA requests for information. This executive order was entitled United States Intelligence Activities. It was amended by Executive Order 13355: Strengthened Management of the Intelligence Community, on August 27, 2004. On July 30, 2008, President George W. Bush issued Executive Order 13470 amending Executive Order 12333 to strengthen the role of the DNI.

When big pharma patents a drug and makes it so expensive people die, or they push a drug that is useless and even dangerous.
When Monsanto controls a significant portion of how food is produced.
When you cannot look to a local provider for nearly anything (internet, clothes, etc), because either they cannot compete or their prices are too high for everyman.
When laws are passed that curtail your freedoms in exchange for better profits to the few.
It does infect your everyday life, and I would argue that your have even less power to confront it as you would a direct bribe.
What is needed is a two piece dead man switch. Storage that is encrypted, and a second party to hold the keys. Preferably the two parties do not know each other. Then in your will you instruct the key-holder to send the keys to the storage provider.
This is more complex and more likely to fail in the event of your death, but after that while it may be nice if your info is outed, buty ou are beyond caring.
1.The land Ice is moving to the sea (due to warming, increasing sea level).
2. Fresh water run off and/or higher precip cause the sea to be slightly fresher, causing it to freeze at higher temperatures (still warming caused, and if from runoff still increasing sea level).
3. It is colder, causing more sea ice.
We know for a fact that on average it is not colder ( http://www.ipcc.ch/publication... ), so my money is on some combination of the first two.
More sea ice does increase albedo and thus reduce infrared absorption, which is a negative feedback, but is it enough to reverse the trend locally or globally? That is beyond my ability to predict.
At any rate, he rarely goes TOO the parks, but was taking family visiting one time and what does he hear playing in Epcot, but one of his -unpurchased- songs. To my knowledge he is still fighting them. While not as big as Deadmau5, it makes it blatantly obvious that as a corporation Disney wants copyright control and DRM to protect itself but cares nothing for anyone else they drop a mouse turd on.
Even if we sold the weapons, that should be with the explicit knowledge and contract that we would destroy them under certain circumstances. With our intelligence there should be no issue discovering when those criteria have been met.
Without a genome, we couldn't do any real advanced research on coffee that would allow us to improve it — not in this day and age.
Is pure shite. It is called selective breeding, and it has been done for centuries. While that may not be advanced enough for you tastes, it works, and it improves plant varietals. You do not have to splice DNA to make improvements.
One day we may just go to far and drop like honeybees in a Monsanto cornfield.
