Long Live Private interprise!
But what is more important to remember SpaceX has done this at a much better than any state sponsored company could do it. The POWER of private enterprise having to compete for the contract!

As you should know Trump stated that these drugs should be tested to see if they DID aid the recovery. At the same time he also said that those who wanted to use drugs should be allowed to do so under a doctor's supervision. These results if added to the other results could also show if these drugs should or could be use as a treatment or not. This is true even if the patients are approaching death if the results with the proper footnotes are included in the study would help refine the conditions that these drugs may be usable. But until the effectiveness drug is established no body would be forced to take the drugs, only volunteers. But this will have to have a waver from the CDC here in the US.
British astronaut Helen Sharman has openly wondered if alien life not only exists but may be with us here on Earth "right now and we simply can’t see them." It …
Helen Sharman is quite correct here. For those who believe in a creator god all they have to do is turn to the old testament book of Job where it says that God called a conference in heaven and all the sons of god came and Lucifer from earth also went. Now notice it the sons of god, many not singular. Adam was the son of god on earth but he sold his birthright to Lucifer for a bite of some fruit therefore the usurper Lucifer who had a fake title to earth went in his place.
Self driving or self piloting transportation may some day will be viable but not for some time yet. If the driver/pilot of the vehicle chooses to use the self-drive feature it would be wisdom if they chose the area where there is not many hazards. I doubt UK has areas like that but in many places in the US and I expect in Canada there are places (interstate I-10 for instant) where the roads are straight and few vehicles to inter fear. There may be a jack rabbit to cross the road but not many. Areas such as this would be where I may try the auto pilot but there my hands would be ready to take control. But one day the technology will have advanced to the point where a person will be able to get into the vehicle and tell it the destination and the vehicle will that the passenger to that place then will part the vehicle until called for.
But until thin, I WILL be the driver/pilot!
Simple solution for persons not following the "safety suggestions" would be if the person suffers an accident cannot collect from it if they are not following the "safety suggestion" and if the accident causes others who are following the "safety suggestion" the person not following the "safety suggestion" to be inured that same person would be accountable for the harm caused.
Let the law of consequences take care to the beakers of safety rules to teach them to follow the rules.
Just think it could be that we will not have to file an income tax return in the near future. As the present politics is going that time may not be very far in the future. At the present time it is a privilege to file an income tax return but as the government goes socialists we will not have a reason to do that. The progressives namely, Bernie Sanders, of taking over all health care insurance later to be extended to the health care itself if it proves feasible then why not extend that to other industries also. Just think of how much revenue the government would have if it had all the profits of industry in the US now. If the government owned the industry it could pay its employees what it wants to and since the government owns all industry there would no longer be any investment industry to invest in US domestic companies since there is no private industry. The government would already know how much person makes and could adjust the taxes each have to pay so that there would no longer be a tax return. Everything needed would be provided to the workers so there may not need to have income beyond because what is
needed to live is provided. If a person needs something the government would provide or it will not be needed. There would no longer be a need for politicians nor would there be any money to give to them so they could win an election. It will become that there will be an elite group of people that will run the government and we the people will have nothing to do with that group other than maybe at the most vote candidates that is on the list. But I guess for now we will have to wait a decade or three to see how it works out.
'"It’s Oversight Time" – the congressman announced he would reintroduce a bill [PDF] that would direct the FCC to do more about robocalls and given consumers the right to stop calls and require incoming calls to have caller ID before they are routed to their phones.'
These democrats are so out of touch! An example: the other day I received a call. When I answered the call I was surprised because the call I was receiving was from myself. That is correct. It was my own number calling me but when I answered it was a telemarketer with the person speaking in Spanish or one of the similar languages. Now I don't speak Spanish nor understand it except a very few words.
Here is the part that these democrats don't understand. I ask my son who has been a network administrator for nearly 2 decades about how my number could call me when I had my phone with me. Here is what he said. These marketers buy list of numbers for the area they are targeting. The then use that number as a display for the call. He also said that they can make any number appear to be making the call that they want to. It has nothing to do with the phone company, in fact the phone company don't know any thing about what number is being used. Another example: After receiving one of these calls I decided to check it out so I called the number displayed on my phone. I got a "this number is not in service" answer.
. . . The concerned resident neglected to mention whether he was offended by the sight of his own appendages. . . .
I don't know about that person but I am not offended by the sight of my own appendage. Neither do I go around flaunt my appendages to just any Tom, Dick or Harry. My appendage is for private showing only and that to only a very select individual.
This is a chance for that woman to get a $1,000,000 tax free which she should but in a hidden account for the next time the police stop her with candy in a paper bag which the police think are drugs. It will happen again because the police of any state never learns so they will do it again.
Any company in the US that is supplying any abusive agency of the US government with software or any other services should be forced into bankruptcy and the management should be hounded out of the country. There are many places that would give them a new home other than the US and they should be forced into refugee status themselves to see what it is like.
This case should be of interests to not only American citizens but also to the citizens of western Europe. This merger is the first of many other mergers which will see just a few mega corporations controlling every facet of our lives. Information is the lifeblood of then modern world and these mega corporations will control all the information. But these mega corporations will also control other things such as foods, transportation and every other aspect of our lives. By controlling the information they will only allow the information get out that will they want to get out and that informs only the thing that they want to be know, false or true will matter less than get the information out that they want to further their won aims.
This will also extend to the politics. If a politician who is opposed to these mega corporations, especially in media, tries to get out his or her position on a matter just far do you think that will go? Not very far. Also this will limit persons ability to work and earn a living if they oppose these corps. IN other words each person would be a slave to the mega corps allow to live as long as they toe the line that these mega corps espews.
Readers take this to heart if this continues we all will be just automatons jumping to the strings that these corporations pull
Yes more accurate maps will be needed and Google with its navigation and trip mapping app is currently doing that very thing. As a car with the app drives Google gets updates on the position of the car. Then Google can use that data to map the roads very accurately. Incidentally it is used to reroute the driver if there are traffic blocks or slowdown on the selected route all to get to your destination in the least time.
The government has spent billions and long years to develop the SLS and is not yet ready to launch. Now SpaceX with very little money has already launched a missile with greater lift capacity than SLS and at a much lower cost. But the SLS will not be ready for a couple more years. There should be an investigation and maybe some heads should also role.
Here in America most everyone is on the lookout how to make a buck the easy way. If the driver sues GM he is hoping that GM would rather settle out of court for a few thousands of dollars rather than the cost of many times that amount for them to take it to court even if they win. So take this with a grain of salt it will make this crap taste better.
There has been many improvements over the last 5, 10 and 15 years some of them happened before the internet was much more than a gleam in the eye of its its inventor (Howard Deene as he claims). So this claim may not reach the market as it has been reported but could (will?) result in improvements that will become a product. So don't condemn these claims but encourage them for some will make a BIG difference
It sounds like the Aussies are bound and determined to make their citizens defenseless unable to protect what they have earned. So why earn anything become one else will just take it and if you try do protect what is yours you will face worse punishment that the criminal. Australia has large areas that if one called the police it would be much to late by the time they got there to do any good. and the likelihood of catching the criminal is quite low but if one tries to protect ones own and the criminal is injured or killed look out! You will get worse than the criminal if he was ever caught.
A solution to not only the tax problem but also for the state budget also. What would happen to the companies that don't pay their taxes if that company suddenly become a state owned? I think after a couple of companies became state owned the rest of the companies would be a little more reasonable, and with the profits from those companies would help the budget while not destroying the ability of the company to do its business.
Unless the EU is interested in promoting antiquated technology they should be investigating their companies instead. Now I am kind of old fashion and don't keep up the latest gadgets and I use a Garmin. My son has a modern smart phone and uses google to navigate. His can update minute by minute as needed to reflect the traffic conditions whereas my Garmin does not. When I do get a new smart phone I will no longer need the Garmin (Tom Tom, etc) for the phone will do everything the gps does and much more.
If the EU gps companies ei Tom Tom etc don't want to lose business let them move into the modern world and produce a better product, one that is better than the others out there and it will have users.
Why should I work my a** of to earn more money to have MY money taken away from by force and given to another? So when they do this it will be VACATION TIME!!!.
I have another suggestion to increase the income for the POOR. For any person who is physically and or mentally fit for that person to receive any unearned entitlements (welfare) that person would have to spend 8 hours a day at some assigned task. That would be based on what that person can do even if that is only sitting in a chair in some autormum without their e-gadgets. There will always be trash to be picked up on public property, or some other menial job that don't take much thought power. Now if a person is truly disabled such as needing 24/7 care then as as long as they are under that 24/7 care they would be exempted from the work requirement. If the person needs child care that would be provided, in fact that could the job for some of the ones getting the unearned entitlements. If nothing else can be found the person would have set in a chair with no entertainment for the time required with only the breaks that people working in the private industry is required to get. Fore some who want to learn to earn they could be taking classes and as long as they passed the classes they could get paid for that instead of the made work. However after the training they would then have to get a job or be given one of the menial jobs.
If this was adopted I would bet that there would be a sudden drop in those who applied for the income and get out and find a job where they can earn more money.
Finally a scientist who should know what he is saying about the rise of the oceans makes sense. Some months ago I calculated the sea rise by finding the volume of ice in the Arctic and The Antarctic and Greenland. Then I took this volume of ice and spread it over the surface are of the seas. I used the formula one volume of ice = one volume of water which it is not the same. I also considered the seas were in a vertical walled container which it is not. The volume of the three ice masses would raise the seas only about 600 to 800 millimeters under these conditions. (I don't remember the exact numbers). However since one volume of ice = only 0.931 volumes of water and as the sea rises so does the surface area. So it is very obvious that the sea rise would be much less.
When this CO2 business started several years ago I stated at that time that wind and solar would not be economical substitute for carbon based energy. I said also that nuclear is the best source for producing electric energy. If other than uranium was used it would also be safer without the chance of a runaway reaction.
It is time to think nuclear agan.
Why should Google be the final arbitrator on what should be delisted? That job should be the prerogative of the ECJ or another governmental office. The ECJ should be the one who receives the request, processes the request and then issues the order to the search engine companies the listing that should be delisted. That would give the ECJ a more proactive role in this situation and take out of the hands of the search engine companies if the they failed to following the orders.
I suggest we kill the troglodytes. . . .
Well, since it is illegal to kill (people) I suggest that we start using the laws and power of the state to force these troglodytes to become like the rest of us. One way that can be accomplished is to use the laws to force people respect the rights of the LGBT and not be able to discriminate against them even if ones religious belief say it is wrong. Religious right are find as long as they don't interfere with modern lifestyles.
The climate is changing whether we want it to or not. With all that Obama has done to improve the US economy and the positive results that his efforts have had who else would or could one trust? Would or could trust those conservatives, climate deniers who put the world in the economic problems that it is just now coming out of? Give Obama and other like minded world leaders the authority (and budget) to do what needs to be done.
It seems that the ECJ wants its cake and to be able to eat it at the same time. Google should should push that all delisting orders (not requests) should come from the ECJ and not from a request by the person(s) being delisted. It should not be Google (or any other search engine) to make the decision to delist or not. That should be an order that comes from a LEGAL authority and not the company who is to carry out the delisting. Then the search engine(s) would be required to carry out the order as a minimum not as a maximum.
But then the ECJ would be the one who would catch the fallout instead of the search engine(s) who do the delisting and I don't think that the ECJ wants to take the heat for any screw up (as the Spanish did). So Google and other search engines should continue to do as Google did in Spain and when they get a delisting request then honor that request to the nth degree.
Wouldn't it be wonderful if the EU found that there is no longer any Google? They may get that.
But on the EU's right to be forgotten. If the EU is going enforce the "Right to be forgotten" then is should be the court which informs the search engines what data is to be for gotten and if it does not come from the court the search engines should not obey the request. Of the searcher engines should forget all search results even the ones the police may need if the request comes from the individual and the search engine companies are required to honor it.
Hawkins may very well be correct if his views on how humanity came into being which is evolution. In evolution life is continuing to evolve and it dose not matter what causes that evolution. In this case it is being caused by humanity and its scientific advancement. So it is logical that one day in the evolution of man that man would make a machine that becomes sentient. Of course man will continue to improve that machine until it will be able to do what man does, reproduce. When that happens then the need for man becomes less important, even unto the point that the cost of keeping humans vs the benefits of humans reaches becomes negative. When that happens then humans will start dying off and soon will not be any more.
It should be that unless Google receives a take down from the ECJ Google should remove all references of he person requesting the take down from ALL search results form now on or none. The reasoning is that it should not be Google making the judgement call on which to take down or not, that should come form the ECJ. So all take down request would have to go through the ECJ which would issue the take down order to Google and if Google did not adhere to the order then it would be fined according to a predetermined scale.
Now when that happens Google will not be the judge and jury on each of these take down orders.
Now if the ECJ decides that it will not be the clearing house for the take down orders then when Google gets a take down order it should decide to eliminate all search results of the person or company who requested the take down order and even the state would then have to get a court order to revel the results.
Now just what is the work experience of the two? Now if the man had more experience, say, 5 or 10 or even 15 years in management and the woman has just moved into management the difference in pay is probable less than if it had been a man with the same experience as the woman had been appointed as CEO.
Now when the women come up with a true gender discrimination then tell us so we can do something about it. But stop, please, reporting these feminist complaints that have no bases.
Here is another conundrum. As the lower salinity of the Antactica water freezes the salt is returned to the sea which will in turn raise the salinity of the sea which would lower the freezing point.
Yes there is much more to be known. At this time the ocean currents and the magnesphere are not understood and may never be.
Well at least with an HP pc one has a choice but with Apple there is NO CHOICE. What is the courts going to do with that one? Are they going to require Apple to allow other operating system on it. How about are they going to allow someone to put an Apple OS on a different computer Apple DOES NOT ALLOW either one of these options.
AceRimmer, the problem with your statement the taxes will not go to fund education. Politicians are notorious for their taxing to fund their pet projects most of which is designed to get themselves reelected.
I have heard and used this statement many times, "Follow the Money". If one follows the money it will tell who is supporting (in some cases opposing) something. Most politicians if they were assured it could not be traced back to them would continue to increase taxes until everybody had to depend upon the government for every aspect of their life.
Now as far as the warning of the climate. The scientist who study history says that the earth has warmed/cooled (not necessarily in that order) many times even to the extent that ice covered much of the northern hemisphere. Most of these cycles happened before humanity was high enough to have much effect either way. But today it is humanity that is the cause of climate change (global warming) weather humanity is or not because now the politicians can use this claim to increase the taxes (to help reduce the cause of the global warming). These taxes are not used to reduce the causes to global warming but fund their pet projects.
