No it doesn't. Morning comes from one of several possible germanic sources meaning morning possibly related to the Greek to sparkle, but that sounds a bit of a stretch.
Unsurprisingly "morning" is an old word and the root is unclear.
Similarly evening isn't from "ending" of any source either.
It's worth noting that the German "morgen" also means "tomorrow" in a similar way to Spanish.

Because the US is concerned that a key ally, and one that it spent many thousands of lives creating, may become dependent on a rabid dictator.
This is not unreasonable.
That's bollocks, for most of the country speeds are determined by whatever technology BT decides to give them. The competition pretty much decides who send you bills and who you shout at when it doesn't work.
This simply isn't true, unbundled providers exist pretty much everwhere in the country and have their own equipment in the cabinet. Sure, open reach provides the back haul, which is why that's crap, and open reach provide the wire, which is why that's not been replaced since the early 1900s.
Corbyn's plan is to take out the one bit that open reach haven't fucked up.
If you have a bad line, then get your arse together and pull the bloody thing down so they run a fresh one. That's how you used to get stuff done in the state monopoly days, because none of the employess gave a toss.
Having read the cyclist comments, I'm not convinced that a few deaths is a bad outcome for them.
It seems they broadly expect to die and yet carry on, so presumably they're happy with that.
As for the remoteness of the human fallback, where else would they be?
You aren't seriously going to prefer the guy in the back of the "autonomous" car are you?

You seem to be confused about the idea of being treated as innocent until proven guilty and actually being innocent until proven guilty, they are quite different things.
If we're going to get picky on naming then the generic term is GNSS.
There's also the Chinese one as well of course.
It'd be pretty unlikely that all of them would be disabled simultaneously, and if jammed the encrypted signal would be jammed too, so it's really not that big a deal.
