He knows, we know, he will never have to make good on any of his campaign promises or boasts. He is 100% certain to lose the election.
He can promise anything he wants and it's meaningless. So why not go for the big ones: abolish the IRS but bring a efficient and fair tax enforcement, dismantle the Fed and have a strong monetary policy, kill off Wall Street and at the same time promote free enterprise, yadda, yadda.
Singling out only the universally unpopular NSA ist what a coward would do.
It's not really american when the Atlas V, the rocket which this capsule ist built for, still uses russian RD-180 rocket motors. A rocket is a fuel tank and a rocket motor mostly. It's not the fuel tank that's hard to build....
What moron would still "buy" any cloud based smarthom systerm after this?
Let's hope this rumour is right. One less shitty vendor with shitty WLAN chips. Then Apple and Dell have to look elswhere to fsck over their customers with crappy hardware without working (Linux) drivers.
They found the problem in 2012 and it took until 2016 to actually fix this relatively minor problem with big consequences?
Apparently the state of Washington has outsourced this software and its maintenance to their biggest taxpayer, Microsoft. No other way there is any reason to wait for a bugfix for four years.
Yes the sealevels will rise, but they already rise with every hurricane or tides of the moon.
After Fukushima everyone knows that you need big ass dams, flood walls, protected and working backup generators etc.
If you build a 10m high floodwall or a 11m high one to also protect against global warming induced sea level rise simply doesn't really matter. If someone hasn't already built said 10-15m high flood wall, it's not global warming that is an issue but the regulatory commission in your country. A much more immediate problem too.
A university is not a government agency with special powers against other citizens.
Law enforcement ist allowed to do these things only with the approval of the judiciary too. Which they apparently didn't get. 4th amendment, computer security laws and all thoes pesky things.
for the FBI and the university to take:
If they are allowed to decrypt messages which are passing through "their" property, then:
a) Pay TV hackers must be allowed to decrypt the Pay TV signals ending at the cable box or coming from a satellite
b) Any ISP or whoever owns a router which transmits encrypted traffic is allowed to decrypt and read it.
Either the FBI and the university have to be punished like cable signal hackers and other bad guys, or the law covering those offenses is not worth the paper.
On your Laptop there is a normal Windows installation which is not used for work. Only for stuff like browsing the web in the evening at the hotel. mails to the kids, etc.
On a USB stick on the keychain there is a copy of Tails https://tails.boum.org/index.e...
You rent some VPS or root server in a country of your choice, under a different name, preferably paid via cash. This is the place where all the data for work is stored. encrypted.
This server you only access via Tails which uses Tor by default.
If you can't do this, you put an encrypted VM onto your Laptop which happens to have the data for work and you write your stuff or access the web for work related research only in this VM. Again using a distro like Tails.
Why would anyone with even an ounce of self-estime parrot bullshit like "that can can be dropped from an aircraft to deliver supplies to isolated locations in the event of disasters, then evaporate into thin air once their job is done."
This is not for disasters. When there is a disaster, and you deliver stuff via one-time use means, you want to keep these aur vehicles cause they are valuable and incredibly useful. For example some parachute can be easily repurposed as a tent, to keep out rain or simply people from freezing. These are valuable materials. Metals are equally useful, etc. There simply is no trash at a disaster site, only ressources
The only, really ONLY reason for self destructing air vehicles are to infilttrate spies and spec ops into foreign countries to cause violence.
Yes and no: when someone posts the latest Hollywood blockbuster and it ends up in a Google search, then I as a european citizen see "we have removed some hits due to a DMCA violation" (paraphrased) in my german results. DMCA and the whole thing being a US law, brought with US lawsuits, etc.
So, Google can't have it both ways: either it doesn't care about US law and their DMCA in Europe either, or it cares about all law everywhere.
Courts usually dislike double standards like these.
Letter to the athletes:
To participate in the 2020 Olympics you will need to pack:
1. Geiger counter

It was released to the press and only to the press, notably The Guardian and the Washington Post. Where we've all seen it. Or can you point me to a tarball with all the Snowden documents, unredacted by anyone else? Can you? No, cause that doesn't exist.
Seems you should educate yourself about things before you commenting on things?
