Funny that they incline the keyboard that way for more comfortable typing - I thought a negative incline was most ergonomic, so the top of your hand remains at the same angle as your wrist and arm.

Only just real terms increases, and far below the rate of increase of demand for its services.
The proportion of the population over 65 is rapidly increasing, where most healthcare demand lies. The collapse of social care is sucking resources from the NHS indirectly and directly and modern treatments cost more money.
The NHS ranks well with competitors for value for money - we spend far lower as a % of GDP than comparable countries. It's a miracle it still works at all.
> Making friendships at work is unhealthy and toxic. Don't do that.
What? You sound like some sort of asocial basement dweller when you come out with blanket statements like that.
Faking a friendship at work is unhealthy and toxic.
If you're lucky enough to work somewhere full of awesome people, making friends is normal human behaviour.
Some of my closest friends are people I worked with 5 or 10 years ago where we just clicked instantly - I can't understand why you would deprive yourself of the possibility of enriching your life with awesome people, just because you happened to meet them at work.
It's great for reliable and auditable international transfers.
No eye-watering fees when sending money to a less common destination and none of the bullshit we had once with a high street bank sending the money to an overseas branch, it not arriving, and having systems incapable of finding out what the problem was.
PlusNet (EE reseller) have great £8/10 month rolling monthly contracts with no commitments. Even better, as they roll out better deals for newer customers, you can switch yourself onto them from the following month just using their website, with no need to do the telephone support dance of threatening to leave etc.
Blame is highly important. It's impossible to have a just post-conflict settlement without acknowledging and compensating for historical injustices.
As the article states, the Palestinians have tried both peaceful and militant means of resisting the systematic annexation of their homeland. Just saying "they should be non-violent" is ignoring their right to violent resistance which is protected under international law and asking way more of them than we would abide by ourselves.
Imagine a group of people setting up a country in the borders of a Western country and then systematically stealing land and ghettoizing the surrounding country, while supported militarily by a superpower. We wouldn't expect the occupants of that country to live with it and nor should we expect the Palestinians to do so.
"What we need is a big initiative to get everyone up to the same level, with a catchy name. Any suggestions?"

You would have thought that there would have been lots of independent witnesses at the centre though.
Notable that if his old domestic violence case had been processed in good time then this may have been nipped in the bud also.
"Though the game starts off with NPC quest-givers fully voiced, this declines over time to the point that side quests just have some text."
That seems like a pretty cynical design decision to lure players in with a bait and switch.
The blowing up graphics cards ended up being due to poor manufacturing I believe though.
I don't think that should be a get-out for a company as profitable as Apple though, at least when it comes to security bugs.
They could spend $100m to build an amazing security team that does nothing but handle bug bounties and *still* have made $105bn in profit. Hell, spend $1bn and make it $104bn in profit.
The resources they have access to are utterly mind-boggling and it's shameful they don't care enough about security to use it.
There's a lot of people confidently spouting complete bollocks on here today. Your mask isn't there to catch COVID particles directly. If it did, you wouldn't be able to breathe, as oxygen molecules are several hundred times larger.
The masks prevent you spraying water droplets everywhere, which are a vehicle for transmission because those droplets can contain the virus. This is basic, basic stuff.
Well, I am not a lawyer, but you can't just sue for the fun of it. You sue to make amends for some sort of loss that you've suffered.
If Trump says he was cheated of the Presidency, Joe Bloggs can't sue him for that. If Trump says Joe Bloggs filed fake ballots to make him lose the presidency, then that would be a reputational loss that you've suffered, and perhaps you might have a case.
If you wanted to read up, then https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tort is probably what you're looking for.
Look out, the soCiALisM is coming to get you!
The far simpler explanation is nVidia care about maintaining their multi-decade customer base of video gamers and don't want them to switch to a competitor or to a next gen console in case they don't come back.
You're on a really sticky wicket here. Only 14% of child marriages in the US are between people of similar ages.
Between 2000 and 2015, over 200,000 minors were legally married in the United States, or roughly six children per thousand. The vast majority of child marriages in the U.S. were between a minor girl and an adult man. Most minors married were girls. In many cases, minors in the U.S. may be married when they are under the age of sexual consent, which is 16 to 18 for most states. In some states minors cannot legally divorce, leave their spouse, or enter a shelter to escape abuse.
Unchained At Last, the only non profit advocacy group dedicated to ending child marriage in the United States, found that only 14% of the child marriages conducted from 2000 to 2010 were between two children marrying each other. In most cases, child marriages are between a minor and an adult. In terms of spousal age, the majority of those surveyed, about 60%, reported being 18–20 years old. Less than 3% reported being over 29 years of age. In over 400 cases, the adult was aged over 40. And in 31 cases, they were over 60.
According to data compiled by Anjali Tsui, Dan Nolan, and Chris Amico, who looked at almost 200,000 cases of child marriage from 2000-2015:
67% of the children were aged 17.
29% of the children were aged 16.
4% of the children were aged 15.
<1% of the children were aged 14 and under.
There were 51 cases of 13-year-olds getting married, and 6 cases of 12-year-olds getting married.
Extreme examples include a case in 2010 in Idaho, where a 65-year-old man married a 17-year-old girl. In Alabama, a 74-year-old man married a 14-year-old girl, though the state has since raised their minimum age to 16. According to Unchained At Last, the youngest girls to marry in 2000-2010 were three Tennessee 10-year-old girls who married men aged 24, 25, and 31, respectively, in 2001. The youngest boy to marry was an 11-year-old, who married a 27-year-old woman in Tennessee in 2006.
You're really bad at reading comprehension. The exploit was developed on Linux. And the page specifically says it's not designed to test whether your machine is vulnerable:
"It was developed and optimized for Chrome 88 running on an Intel® Core™ i7-6500U processor on Linux. While it was confirmed to work on other CPUs (different vendor and/or generation), operating systems and Chromium flavors, you might have to adjust the configuration and it might work less reliably (or not at all). Note that the goal of this proof of concept is to demonstrate the feasibility of a web-based Spectre exploit. It is not a test to see if your device is vulnerable or not."
