So exactly which vague unworkable promise do you think that the public would notice that Trump won't complete first? Perhaps it will be the 10% growth or the promise of more manufacturing jobs, but I bet the first of his, nay the GOP's, great disappointments might be the wall mexico will pay for. Next up will likely be the deep recession in part caused by a trade war he picks with a tweet.
Never is a long time, human nature isn't static, and you don't know what you are talking about. but this is Slashdot so I guess that goes without saying.
What are you even talking about?
These systems have been around forever, SpaceX is (once again) doing nothing new or special. They only work when there is forewarning, and that is unlikely to be had during a fueling mishap. This isn't a cartoon or action movie, you can't just outrun an explosion in progress by jumping fast and wearing cool shades.
Huh. I guess white people are a minority, worldwide. And soon to be just another minority here at home, thankfully. Being a majority does weird things to people's heads. Like making them think they can put words in other people's mouths.
Yeah, but it was a racist who sent out that memo so it doesn't count.
I don't think NAFTA made any sort of provisions for corporations to sue the government. It has a system for adjudication of issues related to NAFTA, but nothing specifically like what CETA has. Of course, if you have sources that say otherwise then I will admit to being misinformed.
Read up on Investor State Tribunals in CETA here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...
Basically it allows corporations to sue states in arbitrary "tribunals" if a state violates its Non Discriminatory Treatment obligations (CETA, section 3, p 156 f) or because of a violation of the guaranteed investment protection.
So corporations can claim that environmental protection laws are arbitrary and give unfair advantages to domestic companies that comply with those laws, while penalizing foreign companies that do not comply.
The fear is that corporations will claim, "You are only enacting those environmental, worker protection, and social justice laws to penalize us, it's just code for 'protect local business.'" This is a realistic fear because it has happened before.
A couple of years ago, a company for which I had been working was refreshing all the laptops. As part of the program, the USB ports were locked down so that only encrypted drives could be used. As soon as you plugged in a drive that was not encrypted, it insisted on encrypting the contents before allowing it to be used as a drive. In fact the company policy was that one could continue to use your personal thumb drives, but insisted that they be encrypted and password protected (which seemed odd to me at the time)
I suspect that he, like many people (but not me), had a bunch of his 'day to day' files on a thumb drive, perhaps even the data he wanted to 'keep safe' while getting new equipment, but may have been untouched in months if not years. As part of his 'departure plan' he uploaded all of the old data*, including that 'silly extra step' of encrypting his old thumb drive. However, that transaction was logged as an upload to the encrypted drive and at least one of those file names was later flagged as containing 'Personally Identifiable Information'. The thumb drive might not have even left the office, but clearly wasn't accounted for on his exit.
Not every blunder deserves handcuffs.
The generation of random numbers is too important to be left to chance.
