Freedom of Association
So no one ever discusses how anti-discrimination laws infringe on freedom of association?

so if i understood this correctly the scientist were looking for basically debris kicked up from the impact similar to any ordinary impact?
if that is so how would that even be possible given that the debris would have to traveling faster than the speed of light to have a possibility of being thrown up to form a temporary cloud?
in addition to these i would add the following.
- no blocking lawful content and non-harmful devices
- no throttling
- no paid prioritization
- transparent network practices
- open up the right of way so that anyone can run physical lines to homes without having to pay $$ to ATT for usage.
- For spectrum purchases if the owner does not use that freq range in a given time owner ship reverts by to the public to be put up for purchase.
- QOS requirements for consumer connectivity.
when i was a lad back in my middle school days. We were taught that copyright and patents are government enforced monopolies, that was intended to reward the artist/inventor. Therefore it should be temporary and strike a balance between protecting the artist and the rights of the fellow citizens and society in general as music/books/movies are all representations of culture in general. The term of copyright was to be calculated as 1/4 of the average lifespan with an extension that had to be applied for by the holder. The reason for this was so future generations could take that same material and freely reinvent it to be applicable to that generation.
It was never to be used as a business model which is what we have going on now. Large media companies. That can afford armies of lobbyist, to get their dream of permanent monopoly put in place. That is why you now have lifetime of the author plus 72 yrs, with an automatic renewal. The original intent and purpose has been so obscured and distorted by these media companies. That it may be impossible to restore the balance back may take multiple generations and we are looking at losing all since of fair use.
so you rolled it out in large cities that already have a lot of competition and wonder why the sign up rate is so low.....
Why not go for areas with low completion or none at all. where i live i can only get satl. internet there is no broadband otherwise. only one company ATT and they have no intention of doing fiber wanting to force all the users to their over priced "wireless" options.
i believe the point he is trying to make is the main issue has a much larger scope than the narrow scope which is contained in the one news article.
" It suggests that because some black people commit more than their fair share of crime" the problem is the stats show that to be the case.
You can see the disparity stays the same year after year compared to the percentage of the population it is disproportional.
But sure lecture US on racism when your own Prime Minister stated that the reason for leaving the EU was racism/zenophobia. The national news media over here showed James Cameron saying that line over and over again.
"Well no - it's has accelerated from near zero rise at the start of the industrial revolution to a few mm a year now"
So at the maximum extent of the ice sheet prior to the end of the ice age when the continental shelf was exposed until the start of the industrial revolution there at some point a cessation of sea level rise, because the earth was in some kind of perfect balance that ever existed before? What exactly is the measure here, when did the sea level supposedly stop rising, whom decides what the "normal" level supposedly is for the sea. I was taught that prior to the ICE we did not have ice cap's at all and the majority of the world was tropical.
having worked in for the Fed. briefly I can say that most of the IT staff is probably not as skilled as the author thinks. The way the hiring is done for the USA government is as follows:
1) internal employees
3) special minor groups
4) any one else out side the above 3.
The job requirements are secondary to the selection of the personnel that is hired. So if some one whom has 10 years direct experience applies for the same position as some one with 1 ( but is in group 1 thru 3), the person with 10 years experience will be pasted over. The issue with this that just like all other US companies the Fed does not do any training. So even if you have a person that has a lot of drive but little experience apply the odds of their skills increasing outside their own efforts is very low.
How about splitting up all those telecom companies into more companies? Instead of allowing them to keep merging until their is only a hand full left. and you lose any competition in the market place.
Here I sit 5 miles outside the city limits of the capital of my state 'No DSL for you'. and no plans to ever provide it. But hey it is AT&T after all and they are not a monopoly,
Why just the other day my cousin was telling me that her company decided to provide her with a T1 line to her house. And low and behold, AT&T want $320.00 month for the line and $11,000 dollars for "special construction cost". She lives a couple of miles from me.
Yep, AT&T is all about customer service.
