Re: Well that's going to be quite restrictive

Unless Sim City comes out with a serial killer module it'll still be allowed over there until the censors catch it.
I suppose RPG's like Dungeons & Dragons will be next.

It sounds like blackmail to me. Perhaps DHS can be sued for that tactic. Making a big deal of it in the media may or may not be to one's advantage, but a second lightning strike could become a political nightmare for the US.
One hopes that PIR and ISOC refuse to disclose their data resulting in either a court suit and/or a state takeover of their offices to find the requested info. I'd prefer the second choice as it would give the green light to the state to go fishing for more incriminating evidence on ICANN's other activities.
"senior heads at Microsoft, AWS, AstraZeneca and other businesses met behind closed doors with leaders of the NHS to thrash out ways to create a commercially valuable repository of 65 million patients’ data"
I suspect that there was NO discussion of how to allow individuals to opt out of the DB: just how to create one. And don't get me started on genetic DBs. Just creation of a searchable pool of info with de-anonymization capability is rather abhorrent.
The jury is out on the abuse of power charge, but the US Congress is certainly contemptible. As stated above and in many other posts, the 2 party system is partially at fault, I believe: it tends to cause both parties to deadlock a lot. Perhaps Congressional term limits would be a way out of the gridlock, I dunno, but it certainly couldn't hurt.
The talking heads at Fox News might help enlighten you as to how stupid the Democrats are with this entire impeachment mess. I just want to ask them collectively why they keep wanting to impeach a Republican president. I believe they have tried on about 5 of the past 6. (Nixon quit before they could catch him.)
One has to remember that the atmosphere on Mars is very thin, and will cause much less drag on falling masses. However, I expect that the estimate of 360 kph down a slope is still just an outside guess, and may be a rare event. Best to go there and observe.
A bit expensive admittedly. However, one that can possibly be fixed: negative results can be useful. How important is this particular mission anyway?
Given that the crust in this location is so hard, possibly a reusable and mobile drill should be utilized; the information might be of interest to early settlers on Mars if they find it extensive and prefer to build underground shelters.
The distance to Himiko wasn't stated in the article, and is apparently just another large galaxy within the z66OD protocluster. [z66OD is] "the oldest protocluster of galaxies found to date began clumping together some 13 billion years ago."
Basically the Reg article is click bait, but still demonstrates interesting science.
I'm hoping to find out what sort of punishments are handed out, and munch popcorn while the usual discourse over jail sentence time drags on. Those who create a business model of chaos as a service or utilize those businesses deserve years of porridge.
Hopefully there will be updating of this article.
