3. No limits on the maximum duration of the workweek. The EU's working time directive is a good start.
Luckily we do not live in the EUSSR. If I want to work 80 hours a week, that's my problem. If I don't, I can work somewhere else (H1-Bs can do that too).
OK. I'm in the EU (for the moment), so I'll respond to this. You as an individual can opt of the 48 hour week. That is your choice. However you can't be forced to opt out (expect in those occupations where it would be dangerous to do so).
So what's with the "EUSSR" label?
systemd is bad for servers. It adds nothing...
My understanding (which may be wrong) is that the impetus behind SystemD from the server side might be containers. Currently, these can't be managed centrally (AFAIK), but with SystemD...
Just something I heard in passing during a Docker presentation, so I can't provide references.
Oracle bought Java with Sun Microsystems in 2010 but only now is its License Management Services (LMS) division chasing down people for payment, we are told by people familiar with the matter.
Oracle had previously sued Google for the use of Java in Android but had lost that case. While that case is being appealed it remains to be seen if the latest push to monetize Java is a response to that loss or part of a broader strategy on Oracle's part.
The Greenies and NIMBYs are going to oppose fusion just like they oppose fission.
Not quite true. They don't all oppose fission out of hand. For a take on nuclear from one of the UK's more renowned green journalists, George Monbiot, see http://www.monbiot.com/category/nuclear/
The report, ‘Unsettled Belonging: Britain’s Muslim Communities’, finds they broadly share the same views as the rest of the population. Despite the greater religiosity and social conservatism of British Muslims, their life-styles are largely secular with only limited interest in sharia finance or separate religious education. However, the report also highlights a mentality of victimhood in Muslim communities and a belief in conspiracy theories about 9/11.
and from the article it references, first two sentence of the foreword;
Britain’s Muslims are amongst the country’s most loyal, patriotic and law-abiding citizens. The truth of this is confirmed by the polling that sits at the heart of this report.
I still not sure this squares with the figures or impression given. As to victimhood and conspiracy theories, I don't think you need to be a Muslim to be be subject to these!
