That's real spycraft, not just going through the motions.
That deserves one of these -->

I was delighted to find that my preferred domain registrar (34sp.com) have already signed, and sent them an email to say so. If your registrar has - congratulate them, will help them fight any pushback internally. If they haven't - email to ask why not, and why you shouldn't move to one that has?
Single sign on doesn't mean giving everyone access to everyone's records. It means that you have one authentication, which then gives you access to the things you have the right to access, whatever system they're in.
Working out what you have a right to access becomes more complicated, but it isn't impossible. One solution I heard is that every access should be audited and the patient themselves can review, along with reviews of suspicious events (e.g. doctors receptionist getting records of someone not registered at the surgery - there are valid reasons - emergency appointment when visiting relatives - but if one receptionist goes outside the statistical norms you can ask them what's going on).
This is a complex problem to solve, and making things too secure could end up with the patient getting incorrect treatment. However we should be honest about what the problem is.
Depends what you're comparing the large scale agriculture to. You've chosen to compare to organic farming; you could alternatively compare it to what the land would be doing if it wasn't farmed at all, which is a valid comparison of you're comparing where we are now globally to decades ago.
Likewise you've carefully chosen the northern hemisphere for your deforestation stat, rather than globally, despite the atmosphere being global... could that be because looking globally doesn't match the outcome you want?
Can report the same flaws apply to ultimate too...
It's a good product, and it is getting better. I like having the CI setup itself in source control. Some of the security analysis features are pretty good. There are a few nice features where just a little more work will make them really nice.
Not perfect, but worth a look
If they're doing it properly, then the credit card numbers will be passed to a CC processor, who will return a transaction number. If they want to refund the transaction, that's what they need. The CC processor will hold that link, but there are a small number of them and they can afford to do security a lot better (and understand that they need to do it).
Likewise for repeating credit card payments, saved cards etc. done properly it will be passed to the CC processor who will return a token. That token can only be used by that merchant - so if the token does get exposed you can't use it all over the place.
Of course, no guarantees that things are done properly, and it's very easy to e.g. turn on debug logging of all inputs without remembering there are some you definitely shouldn't be logging!
My TV is relatively dumb (has Netflix but nothing else), I got a Samsung blu-ray to give me the smart functionality - a BD-H6500-ZF, bought April 2016. Same thing, they turned off my iPlayer despite me trying software updates. Samsung support said it was the BBCs fault. https://twitter.com/mrstumo/status/1192172108316581888?s=19
Ended up buying a Roku as the best of a bad bunch. Last time I buy a Samsung
I have also recently started a re-watch, and I'd agree it holds up well - far fewer jokes that now make you cringe than many other shows of the time. The first season is ok but the second is noticeably better when they've had a chance to work out what works.
We also decided to get the box set of Angel (spin off from season 3, I think) and watch them in parallel with the overlaps... Less convinced by Angel so far but it's not bad. Somewhere online there's a suggested watching order so that you don't get continuity out of order.
Our mortgage broker definitely found me a deal I wouldn't have found myself, probably saving thousands over the length of the mortgage, as well as explaining things like the way rates are calculated (e.g. your rate won't improve unless you can get your deposit above this level...).
Total cost to me? Zero! They did it based on commission from the building society (but still it was better than any rate I could find publicly). So as far as I'm concerned it was a win. The same person has also helped several friends and family too.
This was Nick at www.privatepremierfinance.co.uk - I hope the mods won't mind me posting that here.
There was a Radio 4 Moneybox episode about this a few weeks ago, should be still there in the podcast. Most accurate thing was when this was all described as making tax difficult.
It sounds like the original plans might have been useful with extra detail, but now they're watered down to uselessness someone is insisting on going on to save face... Bloody politicans
