Yes, I know that the word "cant" has become fluid over the years, but for the sake of this argument I'm assuming the cops will actually follow the law. The cops can't punish someone for reporting a crime they stumbled upon.
Just like how the cops "can't" shoot you when not resisting arrest. Just because they can't doesn't mean they won't.
Yeah, I somehow doubt that the cops can slam you if you report it as soon as you find it.
It would be the same debate if a car rental place found a bag of crack in a car they were cleaning out. Possession is illegal (big enough bag and you can get slammed for "Intent to distribute"), but destruction of evidence is illegal to. But you can't get in trouble if you just drop everything and call the cops.
But this kind of thing was happening a few years ago.
The problem is the FBI only seem to be able to find incompetent people who would never be able to do things on their own. Seriously, this person couldn't find a copy of a magazine in this day and age? A magazine I'm sure the writers want spread around as much as possible.
A quick Google search can confirm that stocks dropped after the Title II announcement, but it didn't happen on Feb. 25th, it happened on March 2nd (or 3rd, or 9th depending on who you look at). Unless you're trying to tell me that it took a few days for stock traders to notice the news and the rise in stock prices after was just a delayed affect from something else. But I think that the general drop in prices (and eventual climb back for two of the three) was related to something else.
Or it could be what I've been thinking for a vary long time while watching the stock market: Stock prices are bullshit and should not be used as evidence for anything.
"Mary Hennessy Jones, who heads up fifteen primary schools and one secondary school in Cheshire, England."
So 16 total schools will be affected by this idiocy. And yeah, I expect that the police would just shrug it off, but she's still trying to scare parents into doing what she believes in the moral thing.
Personally I hope whoever is in charge of the police sends here a nice little letter detailing the punishment for filing false police reports.
Well, there's someone who needs to be fired but is never going to be because people think too highly of themselves and too little of their fellow parents. They won't speak up because they don't know the person beside them, so they instantly think the worst.
Re: It's not just what they left out, but what they stuck in...
On top of this, they don't take into account the extra benefits of the services. The Internet is not just for a TV replacement (as much as some would want it to be). It has far more value to the end user than cable. Netflix has it's own shows and Amazon Prime has other services. Hell, Amazon, Netflix, and Hulu have the added (and vary important) benefit of being able to watch it whenever the viewer wants.
I would guess that the scoreboard is computer controlled, possibly not really a scoreboard but a giant monitor depending on how fancy.
As to why it's a laptop and not a dedicated PC, probably the same reason as lots of other things: Money. Spent too much on the computer controlled scoreboard, didn't have enough left over for the computer.
AC sees justice as punishing the guilty. We see justice as protecting the innocent. Doesn't sound like much of a distinction, does it, but it makes all the difference in the world.
If someone thinks that justice is punishing the guilty, then due process goes out the window. Who cares how many rights are stepped on, what evidence is destroyed, what lies are told? We got the bad guy.
However, if someone thinks justice is protecting the innocent, then due process becomes the primary goal of the investigation. Have to make damn sure they're looking to punish the right person because you cannot punish the innocent.
Thanks to a few common quotes we hear all the time we know that justice in the United States is suppose to be about protecting the innocent. "Innocent until proven guilty" "it is better 100 guilty Persons should escape than that one innocent Person should suffer" -Benjamin Franklin
But that's not what's happening here. Uber goes threw more checks than regular cab companies before someone can drive for them. The rating system is just a way to continue checking up on drivers. It's faster and more direct than what can be done with normal cabs.
Where I was growing up there wasn't really a rule about carding. Most places didn't card if you looked over 21. I went to high school (so 18 and under) with a few people, both men and women, who bought beer thanks to this little oversight. The general rule now is you have to look over 35 or you get carded.
Not hard to get around wear-leveling. The Trim command was invented to wipe every sector marked for deletion. All SSDs support this due to their inherent problem with needing to wipe a sector before it can be written to.
Any decent wiping program would ether take that into account, or just keep writing random data to a file until the drive is full. Ether way, fully wiping a flash drive is not hard.
Fun fact about storage: The reason it's so easy to recover deleted files is because they're not really deleted, just removed from the index. A recovery program simply looks for files not in the index and can put them back.
That is, unless something overwrote those sectors. On a platter drive, that data can still be recovered. There's leftover magnetic traces that can be detected and recovered. This is why programs like Darik's Boot and Nuke have an option to overwrite a drive 36 times.
Flash drives, however, aren't magnetic storage. Once a bit is re-written, that original data is gone. A few bits here or there aren't a problem, so it's still possible to recover most of the file and not notice the missing peaces, but if someone actually wiped the card, it's not recoverable.
Google's fiber rollout strikes me more like Youtube than, say, Google Reader. They went into it with the idea of making money not as simply a loss leader to get more eyeballs on adsense. I'd be confident enough that I'd switch instantly if they ever rolled out where I live.
Worst case, Google Fiber goes belly up and I switch back to Verizon... Assuming they're still in the broadband business. The way they're acting suggests that they want the hell out.
Assuming for a second (and this is a big assumption) that this was written by Google, it must still be a well written article since this is the best argument you could come up with against it. It just shows how right Google is in this situation when those apposed can't even approach a valid argument.
You might be closing one eye and squinting with the other, but anyone who's actually looking can easily see the commentary. It's quite clearly stating that the original comic is wrong and ignorant. (And to others) Just because it's calling the comic writer wrong and ignorant as well doesn't lessen the message against the comic itself.
Commentary is covered under fair use and does not require any transformation of the original work.
