"These Days?" They invented OO because the maintenance phase of the project was always very expensive, and they were looking for ways to reduce those costs. Fortunately they solved that problem with Agile -- now you just work on the project for years until it's done, then throw all the code away and start over again. No maintenance costs, it's genius!

While it is unfortunate for the opposition candidate to flaunt the Constitution in such a manner, note that we can also see the establishment candidate, Evita Peron^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H Hillary Clinton, is actually proposing to amend the Constitution in order to reverse a Supreme Court decision which allowed a group of people to advocate against her as a political candidate. She also has designs on her political opponents' second amendment rights.

If you have to be on drugs because you're in constant pain, you want to be on the drugs that won't directly kill you. It's hard to OD on pot. We've had two or three in Colorado where edibles were involved, but nothing like the "another OD death every 30 minutes" that's currently going on with prescription painkillers. I wouldn't be terribly surprised if the studies end up showing that it's less harmful to your body than alcohol or even some OTC painkillers like Tylenol.

Theresa May does not have the strong hand in this game.

The banks can lean on Theresa as much as they want, she will get what the EU commission wants. And they are pissed off.

The French are already pushing to move some UK operations to Paris, as they want to strengthen their financial sector. So do the Germans. And right now the Franco-German axis have way more say in the EU than the Brits.
