It should be pointed put that the appointment of David Kris as amicus curiae has been criticized. Before the IG report came put, Kris made multiple cable TV appearances claiming that the FISA abuse allegations were “false” and “dishonest” and that investigating them was “dangerous”.
Wikipedia has the name in both Russian and Chechen (Царна́ев and Царнаев). For both of them, Google Translate gives Tcarnaev, Tsarnaev Tsarnayev, and Tsarnaev (it will also recognize it as Serbian, which gives Carnaev). Bing Translate gives Carnáev for the Russian version and fails on the Chechen version.
This is where I?m reminded of the Library of Congress listing over 30 ways to spell Muammar Qaddafi.
I was originally going to say something like ?if anything, the US media has a slight liberal bias? ? perhaps that would?ve been better.
I do think that media bias studies tend to suffer from experimenter?s bias. On the other hand, I find it difficult to argue with polls of newsroom workers (including by the American Society of Newspaper Editors) that show they?re significantly more liberal than the general population.
More likely he?d be painted as out to embarrass Obama for political reasons, even at the expense of national security. The US media is generally acknowledged to have a liberal bias, not the other way around.
No, they should use a French press or pour-over, as the article mentions. Or just switch to espresso (possibly with E.S.E. pods, which are an open standard) ? you can get a perfectly good machine from DeLonghi or (Philips) Saeco for around the same price as a Keurig.
If they?re really paranoid, they may have locked all their cases and epoxied any external ports, plus disabled booting from CD and USB and password-protected the BIOS.
If they?re using a USB mouse or keyboard, you could possibly take the keyboard apart and attach a USB port, but even that could be easily foiled with software to restrict USB device classes or serial numbers ? or by using PS/2.
Pet peeve of mine: The original PlayStation is supposed to be abbreviated PS1 (although ?Play Station X? was the internal codename back when Sony was working it as an SNES add-on). The PSX was a PS2/DVR hybrid sold in Japan (a bit like the Panasonic Q GameCube/DVD player hybrid).
To add to the lovely Mozilla quote about Firefox moving away from being a ?dumb window? (from TechCrunch via Gooey Software:
?Maybe we shouldn?t even call it a browser anymore,? Mozilla?s VP of Firefox engineering Jonathan Nightingale told me a few days ago. ??Browser? is really an antiquated word. People don?t really browse all that much anymore.? Instead, he argues, we now mostly use our browsers to access sophisticated web apps, web-based productivity tools and social networks.
I like my browser just fine thanks. Stop messing with it. :
