Researchers found these times are less effective because of "dual task interference," a neural limitation where even simple tasks can't be simultaneously performed without significant performance loss. Or, in human terms, multitasking.
Baker had a varied career that included lots of musical theatre and the circus as well as heaps of roles in other productions. I bet he had a million stories to tell.
Who could have imagined that because off the shelf analogue radio controls were so crappy in the 1970s and a series of accidental meetings, it was easier to hire him to steer the inside of the R2D2 Prop. That he was short made him in the Star Wars promotion circuit with kids and so forth.

I realize that this is Slashdot and the centre of gravity for discussion is technology but I really think that storms at sea, fire, mislabeled volatile cargo and other more mundane issues are more likely to affect ships great and small than cyber attacks.
It's tempting to dismiss this as him being wrong by orders of magnitude and then talking down our noses at him by assuming we need to explain what an order of magnitude is, or that he's adopting this stance for transparent political reasons, but let's assume for the moment that he's telling the truth.

Have you all forgotten the Snowden revelations yet? How it became known that the US grabbed cell phone encryption standards before the ink was dry on them, how they tapped the lines between Google data centres. If the operational tools for creating for encryption are compromised or at least weakened, it may well be that they have visibility into source code in a lot of industries as well as communications, which is as good *if not better*.

Not so. Money is at the bottom of all equations and that becomes the fundamental currency evaluation.
In addition to using a random string generator (easy enough to find on-line), add accented characters.
Gosh I hope I cancelled my account before then.
The FBI/DoJ will force the technology industry to move outside of the United States if their request is granted. Moreover, the US government will be on the hook when Apple says 'you owe us an eleven-figure settlement for the loss of our operating system'.
Yes, I'm kidding.
Done and dusted.
The amount of time between slipping on the peel and landing on the pavement is precisely 1 bananosecond.
