I think someone should propose a law or rule to establish a firm cutoff point based on performance characteristics and public safety. I would suggest that models that weigh less than 15 pounds, have a maximum speed less than 40 MPH and have a maximum stored energy equivalent to half a gallon of gasoline should be exempt from FAA regulation. Models or drones that exceed that performance envelope could then be regulated on some level to assure public safety, but they wouldn't need to meet the standards for manned flight.
Also instead of no commercial use of drones I think we need safety standards. Non-commercial uses would have pretty lax standards, while commercial uses need to meet stricter requirements. In any case the operator would obviously be responsible for damages if they lose control of their drone.
Alternately we can let the FAA claim jurisdiction over all commercial flight and send them after people with homing pigeons.
There must be something concrete that he can be fired for. Perhaps he owns a yellow shirt or has blue eyes. At this point it appears that it would have been cheaper to just fire him for unspecified reasons and paid his unemployment claims while he looked for work somewhere else.
I don't suppose the DOJ lawyers can be sanctioned for filing an over length brief? Also I think an appropriate remedy would be to truncate their brief at the 14,000 word limit and fine the lawyers $0.10 per word over the limit. By my count that would leave the lawyers on the hook for $1,249.50 and their brief might make even less sense than it does currently.
You cannot consider a computer secure if anyone else has at any time had unmonitored access to it. Since I doubt you designed your own processor and fabbed your own chips you are in the same boat as the rest of us.
The reason the government doesn't want Huawei bidding on communications infrastructure is the government is afraid they will do the same things that they are doing with respect to spying.
when President Obama's administration puts sympathetic insiders on the board set to review all of these programs and their abuses, it teaches us that the man holding the highest office in our land thinks we're all very, very stupid.
No, he thinks he is smarter than everyone else.
I'm pretty sure these are both ways of saying the same thing.
So instead of punishing unauthorized releases of recordings they say don't record anything. makes it a little difficult to use recordings as a training tool which will in turn make it difficult to get any better at your jobs. Of course it also makes it hard to hold anyone accountable for mistakes.
Good for the politician in the short term, bad for the department in the long term. No bets on how this will turn out.
You don't even have to understand the technology to make sane decisions about it. The name covers it pretty well. E-mail aka electronic mail aka mail that is sent electronically. Sounds like private communications, get a warrant if you want to intercept and read it.
Functionally it is closer to a post card, but it isn't like getting a warrant is an insurmountable barrier if you have any evidence of wrongdoing.
I will illegally release classified information by indicating that my Cell phone frequently connects to the Verizon cell tower that serves Cambridge, MN. Once the NSA notices this disclosure I suppose I will be given a no expenses paid vacation extremely close to Cuban soil.
