There was no "horrendously stupid' idea! approved in the TM office.
as Affinity puts it
"Affinity Consultants..is hired by more than 100 Greek Organizations to manage the commercial use of their trademarks"
"The trademarks include the organization's name, nicknames, Greek letters, crest, badge, symbols, and other insignia"
is this drive for free access to standards also present in other areas of industry?
eg in food industry example BS ISO 3103:2019
Tea. Preparation of liquor for use in sensory tests £67 (discounted price for members)
or ISO/IEC 17025:2017
General requirements for the competence of testing and calibration laboratories.138 Swiss francs
Char.gy say up their lamppost chargers deliver up to 5kW depending.
a random selected council specification says cable supply to street lights should be minimum 6mm² and laid in ducts.
In a domestic situation 6mm² Twin and Earth is rated from 23 to 47 Amps depending on insulation level.
commenting on my own comment, tsk.
Jim deals with people after money by exploiting a fear (loss of computer/files) in an area where they are ignorant
in playing the ignorant victim, Jim has the advantage that 1) he has no files to lose so can remain emotionally detached and 2) he knows their tricks (remote, blanking screen, editing webpages) - hence he remains in control of the interaction and comes out ahead.
In this reported incident Jim had something on the line (his channel) and he has less knowledge (youtube channel deletions by scam uncommon - though held to ransom possibly a problem?) - so the attacker has an advantage even though Jim may be more savvy/sceptical in online interactions than the rest of us.
second point - instead of being up against scam call centre drones, he might have been targeted by a more competent group (whether for hire or the jollies) able to make their interaction more convincing (eg IP not resolving to India, fluent English speaker, less bafflegab/working from script in conversation)
Some people are saying 'Jim' is doing it for publicity, but I think this line
"3.28 million subscribers he had gathered" says otherwise
When you've got a follower base that big (and are doing team ups with Mark Rober that exposes how the scammers launder money through) then you don't put your reputation on the line by that kind of stunt.
I read the first part of Tooze's "Wages of Destruction" which looks at the economy of Germany before and during the war.
I only read the first part because that was the extent of the free sample that Amazon dished up. But it was informative on the economics thinking from 1928-ish to 1936 and how that led to Nazi's gaining power, how much they put into rearmament, and how Germany blew any chance of getting some of what they wanted without war.
The money merry-go-round of American bank loans to 1920s Germany which enabled Germany to pay Versaille reparations to Britain and France, which allowed them to pay back war time loans and purchases to the USA was a surprise.
It's all interconnected.
While UK is in the war, then
1) Britain is a base for operations against German war production which Soviets aren't in a position to attack
2) Royal Navy maintains blockade of German so they don't have access to tungsten, copper, rubber and other things useful for making tanks and ammunition
3) USSR gets some of the Lend Lease via Persian corridor
4) British supplies to Soviets include 5,000 tanks (inc Canadian Valentine production), 1400 radar sets, 1 battleship, 4000 or so aircraft, 13000 tons copper, 114000 tons rubber, £13 million worth of machine tools etc
On top of which are supplies from USA to USSR sent via Atlantic. So keeping the Atlantic open affects the war to the East.
While a possible candidate Navalny is no more likely to say he'd give up Crimea than Johnson is to say he'd sell off the NHS - it'd just give Putin a huge opportunity to attack him.
Pragmatically, if he did become president, Navalny might find he had to make some accommodation over Ukraine.
The RN have been sending Type 45s to the Black Sea annually since 2017.
As these are air defence ships and in this recent case it was teamed with a Dutch air-defence frigate, I'm sure it can't have hurt their capability if Russia did try flying some of their aircraft near it. Just as it can't have hurt the Russians to fly their aircraft near it and see what that the ships' reactions were.
That was my thinking partway through reading.
The first business took steps to mitigate total breakdown of the time server but not a malfunction.
And presumably the interoffice networking example was tested by switching off one unit (the event that was being mitigated against) rather than stopping the heartbeat (the trigger for the backup to take over)
The lesson being that in an ideal world one ought to consider all the things that can happen. I recall a story that Feynman while on Manhattan project in order to give the impression he was involved in discussion pointed to a symbol on a process diagram and asked some innocent question about it. Upon which an engineer present recognised that it was a dangerous weak point.
Now all I have to do is remember this for my own work....
18 years after the Wright Flyer's first flight, aircraft were flying ten thousand times as far over open water.
In the early 1960s, (about 20-25 years after the first rocket and jet aircraft flew) aircraft-launched piloted rockets launched from jets were reaching 100 km in altitude.
Virgin really haven't gotten very far very fast.
Looking at the text
"Notices of termination may be served no earlier than 25 years after the execution of the grant...
However, termination of a grant cannot be effective until 35 years after the execution of the grant"
So best case situation is a ten year window.
As to the writeup, it's probably better left to legal types to read because it's not written for easy reading.
yep. Nazi vote in open election about 30%
Reichstag Fire - presidential decree limits civil liberties
Decree used to remove opposition
Enabling Act passed through support from conservative parties and intimidation of opposing parties gives absolute power to Mr Hilter.
And then the propaganda really begins to be used on the German people.
“Registries are meant to be boring and stable. I don’t want drama. In many ways, I don’t need to know how [the registry] works, it just needs to work.”
Then he should be blaming the present incumbents of the board for creating the drama that got to an EGM.
If he votes No and the vote goes Yes, then he's not going to be to kicked out.
If he did vote Yes and the vote went No then he may have created some enmity with the board.
If he votes No and the vote goes No, then there's no change so far as he's concerned.
So even without considering the Yes/Yes option, it looks like the status quo is makes sense for him.
There's a British Overseas Territory in the Pacific, the Pitcairn Islands.
Combined land area about 18 square miles, population less than 50 (most of whom are descended from the Bounty mutineers and their "Tahitian "companions - unsurprisingly one of the commonest surnames there is "Christian")
It strikes me most consumers are not aware of the requirement for retailers to take waste electricals off your hands when you buy a new one, and that retailers do not do a good job of informing people (because of the extra work for them it would generate).
I seem to recall when we bought a new washing machine locally a few years back, the seller would deliver for modest sum but wanted extra to take the old appliance back to their warehouse where they would be obligated to take it. In retrospect I should have borrowed a trailer, lumped the old one in the back of it and left it by their showroom.
Retailers probably hope that consumers will shove the old item in a drawer or garage and when they do get round to clearing out, make the journey to their local council tip rather than turning up in store broken kettle in hand.
reading the AAIB report it looks like the CAA asked the CASA for information. CASA said get the operators permission to release information but the CAA didn't follow up and ask operator for permission and so didn't find out what CASA knew or thought.
Between that and not actually looking at the drone, on the question of inspection the CAA seem to have not only dropped the ball, but knocked it into their own net.
That said the CAA had made some strict limitations to the permitted flight (eg 20 m max height) on the basis of the lack of geofence, multiple points of failure etc.
No, there's one set of rules, the EMA give a scientific scrutiny of the pharma company's submission and if it meets spec then it passes on for each country's representative(s) gives a opinion - eg on best phrasing of the package leaflet in their language - within a set time period. Then it goes to the commission for the rubber stamp.
The time period from submission to approval is 210 days maximum for evaluation, then another 60-odd for opinions and approval.
There is an alternative process within EU where having got an authorisation in one member state, the pharma company applies for an authorisation in another one under the principle of mutual recognition.
The UK gov now has:
a 150-day "accelerated" process for "high quality applications" .
Rolling review of unspecified length
67-day procedure for accepting EU marketing authorisations
67-day procedure for accepting national authorisations of EU member states
And if you want to put something on market in Northern Ireland, you still need to meet Directive 2001/83/EC, tand Regulation 726/2004
Within the EU vaccines can go through a "centralised procedure" with the EMA or nationally through each countries own medicines regulator. Dealing with the EMA means one contact point, one set of procedures and one set of fees.
And if EMA grants a market authorisation, in this case a "conditional" one, then it can be legally sold throughout the EU.
