An anonymous reader writes: The U.S. Dept. of Justice has announced that Panasonic and its subsidiary Sanyo have been fined $56.5 million for their roles in price fixing conspiracies involving battery cells and car parts. The fines are part of a larger investigation into the prices of auto parts. Interestingly, 12 people at various companies have been sentenced to jail time, and three more are going to prison. Since the charges are felonies, none of the sentences are shorter than a year and a day. Criminal fines targeting these companies has totaled over $874 million. 'The conduct of Panasonic, SANYO, and LG Chem resulted in inflated production costs for notebook computers and cars purchased by U.S. consumers.

Submission + - Rise of the Warrior Cop: How America's Police Forces Became Militarized

FuzzNugget writes: An awakening piece in the Wall Street Journal paints a grim picture of how America's police departments went from community officers walking the beat to full-on, militarized SWAT opterations breaking down the doors of non-violent offenders.

From the article: "In the 1970s, there were just a few hundred [raids] a year; by the early 1980s, there were some 3,000 a year. In 2005, there were approximately 50,000 raids." It goes on to detail examples of agressive, SWAT-style raids on non-violent offenders and how many have ended in unecessary deaths.

Last year, after a Utah man's home was raided for having 16 small mairijuana plants, nearly 300 bullets in total were fired (most of them by the police) in the ensuing gunfight, the homeowner believing he was a victim of a home invasion by criminals. The US miltary veteran later hanged himself in his jail cell while the prosecution sought the death sentence for the murder of one officer he believed to be an criminal assailant. In 2006, a man in Virgina was shot and killed after an undercover detective overheard the man discussing bets on college football games with buddies in a bar. The 38-year-old optomitrist had no criminal record and no history of violence.

The reports range from incredulous to outrageous; from the raid on the Gibson guitar factory for violation of conservational law, to the infiltration of a bar where underage youth were believed to be drinking, to the Tibeten monks were apprehended by police in full SWAT gear for overstaying their visas on a peace mission. Then there's the one about the woman who was subject to a raid for failing to pay her student loan bills.

It's a small wonder why few respect police anymore. SWAT-style raids aren't just for defense against similarly-armed criminals anymore, it's now a standard ops intimidation tactic. How much bloodshed will it take for America to realize such a disproportionate response is unwarranted and disasterous?

"Now, it just becomes a math problem."

The implication here is that you know the formula, you know the inputs, you can hand it to a computer and be done at that point. Just a math problem.

But in fact, they clearly do NOT know all the inputs, or the full formula. There are all kinds of computer simulations but not one that has been proven accurate.

Yes, greenhouse gases trap sunlight and raise the temperature. That is simple and straightforward enough. If we could hold every other variable still and move just one slider for a greenhouse gas, we would expect it to raise the temperature. But not necessarily on a linear scale, and we dont know exactly what interactions we might hit at various points along that slider either.

More importantly, we dont know what the baseline is. We cant just slide that slider back and forth and observe an experimental earth to see what happens, but we CAN look at the record of planetary climate prior to human industrial activity, and it's a pretty wild graph even back before humans were doing anything at all. None of the formula these people are using actually reproduces the existing record btw. Which means that no one really understands why the earth went hot when it went hot, or cold when it went cold, many times before humans existed.

Basically, the earth long-term switches back periodically between a cold earth (one with icecaps, which expand and recede periodically giving the cold earth glacial and 'interglacial' periods) and a hot earth (with alligators in london and no icecaps at all.)

Humans evolved on cold earth, and we are happiest in the warm phases of the cold earth (the 'interglacials' when ice caps exist but remain relatively small.) We prefer that, so we idolise it as the perfect climate, and view any deviation from it as an unatural threat. Glacials drive us into a narrower band around the tropics, effectively reducing our access to all resources. But a full on hot phase, $deity forbid, would be a disaster of an even greater scale. With our present technology I refuse to call it an existential threat - there is no way it would kill us all, but it would likely confine us to a smaller habital zone than maximum glaciation would, and that zone would be further split, with each pole inhabitable, and a vast and extremely dangerous tropical belt separating the two small habitable zones. Higher sea levels would also put much of the land under water, further reducing habitable land to a truly paltry remnant. (On the bright side, moving underwater might well become cost effective in that scenario.)

The key thing to understand, though, is that these changes are exactly what we have to expect naturally. In order to know whether our activity is going to cause a disaster, we have to know not only precisely what we are doing - but what the baseline, without our action, would have been as well. The former we are still fuzzy on, and the latter is almost completely unknown. The earth is warming. Would it be warming if we werent doing what we are doing? We dont know. Maybe it would be getting colder, and our greenhouse gases are all that is holding back a new glacial - or maybe the earth is ready to switch to hothouse planet again, and our emissions are only very slightly hastening the inevitable. Maybe everything was perfectly tuned to go on for another few centuries until we started burning coal but by now we have already thrown things too far off-kilter for any changes in our behaviour to matter. Maybe this warm spell is just the last bump in the chart BEFORE the next glacial, and we should be pumping the atmosphere with all the greenhouse gases we can set our hands on to delay that cold snap a few more years. Or maybe the underlying forces driving the cycle are so much more powerful than our emissions that we are only flattering ourselves thinking we can affect it either way. Or maybe we are even more powerful than we think and actually triggered the upcoming change to hothouse earth even earlier - human activity has been affecting macroclimate in ways we havent even begun to fully understand for around 12k years now, the industrial revolution was just one of many phases in this.

If we fully understood all the variables, and the equations, then we would know exactly which scenario we were in right now. But when our models cant even be taught to regurgitate our historical record it's painfully obvious that we do not, actually, have the whole thing reduced to math.

As humans we are disposed to believe that as long as we dont do anything wrong, we will get the optimum climate we want. This assumption is embedded clearly in many of the worlds oldest texts, and it remains very popular to this day. But it's just not true.

My fave was taking apart the carb on the family car. It was our second car so no biggie - except the primary was in the shop. I put the silly thing back together wrong and the car would only run for a few seconds before dying. I stayed up quite late tinkering with it until I finally tore it down far enough to visualize how it worked and figure out I'd been putting a part in wrong. My parents were pretty relieved and quite surprised when I found this and the car fired right up just fine. I find that doing mechanical things is a great deal of fun and tuning cars - their computers - is even more fun. Optimizing a system to make the most power is a blast! I didn't choose that as a career though as I quickly learned early on that leaning over a car all day was hell on my back and I ended up in the computer field for a job. My mother used to tell me that as a child they had to be careful because if I got hold of a screwdriver anything below knee height would be disassembled. I can even recall doing some of that just to see how things worked although it wasn't until later I could reassemble them :-) Numbers were my bane, reading always my friend and now computers too.

I don't think traits are innate but I do think that some learn in some areas more quickly than others. My ability to visualize isn't something that can be taught in my opinion and I have an ability to figure out faults more quickly than many others. I think the latter can be taught as a skill but not everyone gets it nearly as well so there's talent there too. Certainly i think there are geniuses that aren't found due to lack of education or spotting them - I did very poorly in school simply because I was bored, in other situations I might have simply been failed and passed over.
