Here are some ways for the USPS to save money, raise the price of stamps and packages, close post offices that are too close together or not used enough, stop saturday delivery.
Here are some reasons why none of those things will ever happen. First who wants to be the senator to have a post office close in his or her district. Second there are at least 4 different commities that have oversight over the USPS and all of those senators are progressive communist bastards that all believe that government is to provide free services to all, which could not be further from what the actual role of the government is.
When it comes to radar speed guns, the farther you are away from the camera the less likely you are the object that belongs to the speed shown on the gun. The main power portion of the beem from an average radar gun has a circular diameter of 12 degrees to 18 degrees. Using simple geometry at 100 feet that beem is 30 feet wide (thats using a 'side angle side' geometric algorithim using 2 sides of 100 feet long and an angle of 12 degrees). The portion of the beem that is not in the main power portion of the beem is still an area of influence. Which meens if a oh for example a bird flys through that area of influence or even the main power portion of the beem and that cop has his gun set to tag the fastest moving object that he will tag the bird and not you or that tree moving in the breese or anything else really. Also unless the cop is aiming his gun with you comming directly at him it is also inaccurate.
In the US there is this wonderful thing called the 4th amendment,
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
with that said here are a few excerpts from the wiki article describing
The leaked document includes a provision to force Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to provide information about suspected copyright infringers without a warrant, something which many feel should not be legal, making it easier for the record industry to sue music file sharers and for officials to shut down non-commercial BitTorrent websites such as The Pirate Bay.
Details published in February 2009 indicate that ACTA has six main chapters. Most of discussion to date is focused on the "Enforcement of Intellectual Property Rights" chapter, which has four sub chapters:
Initial Provisions and Definitions;
Enforcement of IPR;
Intellectual Property Rights Enforcement in the Digital Environment
Take this info for what you will but if anything comes my way I will fight tooth and nail.
Wow somebody being forced to use something that turns them into honest tax paying americans. If I have a job and I have to pay taxes then so do you. Only 2 things are guaranteed in life death and taxes.
Finaly somebody got it right. Why dont these companys that see infringment on some percieved threat as free advertising instead cause more free word of mouth is free word of mouth, which imho is always a good thing.
To both of you, I never said that it shouldn't be interesting to others. The intent was that I thought the title of the article was confusing, and that I don't care about college sports at all. No I didn't go to an SEC college.
Why am I not surprised that the first comment is from an exec of the music industry. I look back to Radiohead and the album that they sold for the price of "pay what you want" that seemed to work. I also look back to the 86 year old woman who lived in an assisted living facility whom also had Alzheimers, did not own a computer, did not know what a computer was let alone who she was. Yet the music industry felt it necessary to sue her for downloading music files. If it takes the downfall of the music industry for something better to replace it, then so be it.
As a former Best Buy employee we were not on commission, not even so much as a cent of a sale goes toward the employee. As far as the pushing of Best Buys Performance Service Plan, employees are negatively reprimanded on paper if they start to not sell them in numbers that management prefers (my current employer Sports Authority does not care much if we dont sell their product plan in numbers that they would prefer) and are eventually moved around the store into an area that the employee will better 'fit' into. The only kind of kick back that any employee receives from Best Buy is from stopping theft and from the stores bi annual shrink audit, and even then its not much.
Take this angle into your thought. Lets say you wrote, legally published, and legally copyrighted your book. Then some religious group bought a copy of your book and removed parts that they found questionable and dispicable. Then they republished you book selling it to a specfic group, with you getting none of the profits from any of the sales, let alone none of the royalites. Now I want you to tell me you wouldn't get extremly mad about that???
