Does this issue impact all emergency phone numbers?
Is it only calls to 911 or are calls to other emergency numbers like 999 or 112 similarly impacted?

Not a left-pondian nor a great Trump fan, BUT am never ceased to be amazed by people complaining about him not winning the popular vote.
That was not the first ever election with the electoral college.
His opponent was supposedly someone who knew her way around the American political system, had $DEITY knows how many political advisers plus a husband who had won the presidency twice etc etc etc and yet not a single one of them was able to do the simple electoral maths as to how many states they needed to win?
So, when you vote for a party you fully support their entire manifesto without question?
I may not support the entire manifesto of the party that I vote for but if there is a manifesto pledge on a policy which I have very strong disagreement with then I do not vote for that party. I try and find another party which does agree with my views on that policy and vote for them.
If remaining in the EU was really that important for so many people then I would have expected the Lib Dems, Greens, SNP and PC to have done much better in 2017 election as ISTR they were all quite vocal in their pro-Remain stance. As it happens they all saw a very small fall in their vote share at the national level from the 2015 election (even if some of them picked up a few additional seats).
If a candidate stands for election on a manifesto with their fingers figuratively crossed behind their back then they probably should consider whether they are in the right party.
And BTW, in the 2016 referendum I voted to stay in the EU. By the time of the 2017 GE I had got so fed up with the constant carping by the remain lobby that I became a leaver. For some strange and unfathomable reason, being constantly disparaged as a thick, knuckle dragging Neanderthal has not yet convinced me to change my mind back.
As Cassini dives through the clouds I wonder if the local inhabitants will look up to see this intruder and once they find out where it came from will they turn to singing "a number of tuneful and reflective songs on the subjects of peace, justice, morality, culture, sport, family life, and the obliteration of all other life forms."
was that they haven't already being doing this (or so they say)
Some months ago the name of someone I worked with for a few years turned up in the Facebook suggested friends list.
We lived in different cities, worked for different employers but worked together on a couple of projects for a common customer of both our employers. This was all pre-2008 so generally before Facebook became widespread outside of university campuses and definitely before Whatsapp.
I wondered how Facebook made the connection as there were no common "friends" either. Then I realised I still had his number in my phone contacts. I've never had the Facebook app on my phone, but I do have Whatsapp installed and had assumed that Facebook had got hold of my contact list via Whatsapp (this person is not a Whatsapp contact either).
So if they are only now talking about sharing contacts, then how did Facebook make the connection? Spooky!
As I read through the article I had a growing feeling that it would end with a plug for a "learn to be a bug hunter" course of some sort. It sounded more and more like one of those "work from home for just a few hours and make xK £/$/€ per month/week/day" posts you come across in some forums.
" Even when unauthorized access to the database was detected by the Astros and user passwords were changed, Correa simply logged into the staffer's email account and lifted the new credentials."
Seems to imply that when the employee left the Cardinals they did not suspend / delete his email account (assuming it was a corporate account) or remove it from all distribution lists (if it was a personal account)
Hey! I'm supposed to be the grumpy one here!
Sure nothing's perfect and yes Five Eyes won't be losing any sleep over this. However having seen successive governments falling over themselves to demand more powers for the securicracy, when we occasionally see one apparently declining to do this, it does seem like something worth mildly exclaiming over.
On the other hand, if you were just practising your Bah Humbug, you better get a move on - only 12 days left!
"...having shot up from eighth spot to fifth since the 2016 survey."
In the real world it is still 2015 yet not only is the 2016 survey out but there has been another one out after that from which this progress is being reported?

Have had it for about 18 months now. After a string of flagship phones with one exception (Orange San Fransisco), don't see why I should go back to paying a bomb for a phone. Quite tempted by the new versions, but my current phone is still going strong so it's nice to know I have good options when it starts to flag.
