I have wondered about replacing textual source with a scripting language
You're pretty much describing ici
CMoS apparently refers to "The Oxford Style Manual"
Nope... it's the Chicago Manual of Style
So, if the US Government got a proper search warrant, then Apple is legally obligated to do as legally ordered and unlock the phone
It's a bit more subtle than this: can the US Government order a programmer to write a program they don't want to write ?
I think you're missing the point. It's not an issue whether people should pay for each other's healthcare; it's whether they should pay to run a huge insurance industry in addition to paying for their own actual healthcare.
Imagine how much you could save if you weren't paying towards the salaries of every health insurance company employee -- from actuary to secretary; as well as paying for their advertising, their running costs, and their profits.
If the insurance companies vanished overnight, they'd be the only losers. You could pay directly into a health fund which provided care as required, with no forms and no bills. The vast, expensive, unnecessary, paperwork nightmare would simply disappear.
Yes, other people might benefit from the money you paid into the fund, but they would be people who needed care right now.
Not insurance company leeches.
It all depends on how ill you are (or think you are...)
Here are the options.
In short, if it's urgent, go to a walk in centre or A&E who will see you pretty-much immediately (as a triage), do whatever scans and tests are required, and if necessary admit you to hospital.
Otherwise for seemingly less urgent stuff, you can go and see your GP (you might need to make an appointment),
The GP may deal with the issue directly, or they might refer you to a consultant (in which case there may be a delay as you move up their list.) Or they might tell you to go straight to A&E.
But here's the thing - it'll be exactly the same consultant, and quite probably in the same hospital, as you would have seen if you had gone to A&E in the first place (if you were ill enough.)
In short, delays, when they occur, are mainly due to the triage process.
And there's always the option of going private (either paying directly or through insurance); you still have to go via your GP (for non-A&E issues) but you can jump the consultant's list. (Yes, the same consultant, but this time in a private hospital for a day or two a week.)
There's no benefit to be gained from private health insurance for genuine emergencies; if you had a heart attack in a private hospital they would take you to the NHS A&E. But you might have a nicer room, and better food.
I thought the swedish statute of limitations had expired. Doesn't that mean the arrest warrant is moot and he is free to leave?
Nope. His biggest problem is he broke his bail conditions
Unfortunately you're not allowed to use your own router on VM's network.
I don't know where you live, but where I live, 20 miles north of London, there are a multitude of stables and I frequently encounter riders on local lanes (where the speed limit is 60 mph.) And Spooking the Livestock can be Very Bad Indeed. Hence the new Code of Practice says 'Particular consideration should be given to the concerns of more vulnerable road users including disabled people, those with visual or hearing impairments, pedestrians, cyclists, motorcyclists, children and horse riders. '
No, I'll pass on the "free" stuff..
You seem to have missed the entire point of this story - 'how American students can get a University degree for free.'
Get a degree in Germany, move back to the USA (...if you still want to.)
But the minimum wage only affects working people who earn less than the minimum wage.

A language that doesn't affect the way you think about programming is not worth knowing.
