As far back as kindergarten (in the '70s) police came to our school to teach us bike safety, including hand signals when riding on roads.
1. Don't ride on sidewalk. (It has 'walk' right in the name!) 2. Always ride on the right, with the flow of traffic. 3. Always ride single file. 4. Always use your left hand (ONLY!) to signal. ---- right turn = left arm out, 90-deg elbow bend, hand up, palm forward ---- left turn = left arm straight out, palm forward ---- stop/brake = left arm out, 90-deg elbow bend, hand down, palm backward.
It's pretty idiotic to use the lights to signal a left turn, when the arm movement signals a right.
I would have loved to see an Amendment to the Bill that declared East Texas ineligible for making any legal decisions on patents. They waste everyone's time with the morons they have there deciding these cases.
There are plenty of reasons not to trust the NSA, but worrying about their own employees isn't one of them. Fact is, every business suffers from some sort of 'loss', be it information or merchandise, be it for personal gain or industrial espionage. It is management's duty to prevent that loss.
How the management works to prevent loss, and what they do when it's discovered, are quite different stories than the mere fact they are working to prevent it.
This is just further evidence that DHS policy has become a religion run by fanatics. They are trying to play GOD; the way GOD cast Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden for eating the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil (if you believe in that sort of thing), so will a DHS employee be cast from the cadre for learning about what their own agency is doing.
They want to maintain ignorance, because through ignorance they maintain control.
OPERATOR: 9-1-1. What's your emergency?
CALLER: Help! My wife is having a heart attack!
OPERATOR: Do you have receipts for all music and movies in your, and your wife's, possession?
CALLER: What does that have to do with it?! She's dying! HURRY!
OPERATOR: I understand, sir. But recent regulations require us to verify you are not stealing IP before providing assistance or our funding will be cut off.
CALLER: Now, she's not breathing!!!
OPERATOR: Sir, please don't yell. You have to understand the entertainment industry is on the brink of extinction due to people stealing their IP. Everyone has to do their part to prevent that.
CALLER: Never mind, now! She's dead! Are you happy?!
OPERATOR: No sir, I'm just doing my job to ensure new civilization-enhancing entertainment can be made like 'Fast and Furious 19'. In the future, I suggest you do your part and keep those records handy. Have a nice day, you movie thief!
Every student in the Chicago Public School system needs to be shown this article. Then the next time a teacher tells them to "show their work" after writing just an answer for a test, the student can point to the article and say "You first!"
