If only there was some mythical way to get your computer to record only the programmes that interest you? One in which you look through the list of new titles and pick the ones to record - just one or maybe the whole series. Then later you choose to watch some of the ones you picked.
Oh there is. MythTV and its imitators.
There is an Internet policy that would win back rural voters to the Democrats. A massive rural netification programme on the scale of the rural electrification programmes like the Tennessee Valley Authority. These would be state run to take back control from the cable companies. Once every rural town can work remotely, they don't have to lose all their young to the big cities.
The food laws worked. They no longer adulterate flour with alum and other white substances.
The drug laws worked until Congress voted to make it illegal to buy generics at a lower price. In the rest of the world, governments invite tenders from drug suppliers, achieving discounts for quantity.
Why is it impossible to prove? There have been plenty of studies where the same c.v. was sent in under a European name and an African-American name and only the one with the European name got invited to an interview.
And it is not an impossible data analysis task to do a factor analysis of criteria correlated with hiring, including all the qualification and demographic data. The Government can certainly do that.
Estonia runs online voting that is as secure as paper voting. Neither is perfect, but they have put the effort in to make it easy to verify. In Nicuaragua they use a voting tablet which saves the vote 3 times - on paper print put in a box, on a memory card and transmitted to the counting centre - so there are 2 ways of checking the vote. The voting tablet has pictures, icons and names of the candidate so that you don't have to read to be able to vote. There is also a button to press to confirm the vote, so until then the voter can correct mistakes.
One reason fewer people use Safari on the desktop is the problems people often get when running video conferencing systems on it - particularly the ones that don't have their own client but use WebRTC. as I found out when running an 800 person conference in Hopin.
Sheffield is one of the (mostly Labour) councils who have used the Coronavirus crisis to delegate all powers to the CEO with no oversight at all from elected councillors (except the leader of the Labour group). Oxford is another. The Stalinists are taking over in local councils (as opposed to Conservative Ministers in Whitehall shitting on us).
Was the title of a book in the 1990s. The author pointed out that with proportional fonts, the way to make text look good is to use the conventions of typesetting rather than typewriting. So only one space after a full stop in proportional fonts, 2 spaces in monospace fonts. (Word know which font you are using.)
Since health is not a competence of the EU, but strictly that of national governments, it doesn't matter what the European Parliament or Commission does.. The EU is as powerless to intervene in this crisis as Donald Trump is against the state governors in the USA.
