    The whole problem of his behavior and speech stems from the symptoms of his dementia.

    Agreed. His 180° change between one day and the next with regards to his in-court attitude towards his wife indicates he has some serious mental issues (besides the bigot issues that started this whole thing).

    Who else thinks the blame lies on the American company for concentrating on reducing costs to a minimum rather producing quality? Well, of course, a lot of the blame also lies with companies, the huge food chains, that are not prepared to pay for quality. You get what you pay for.

    Where's your evidence that what you state was the actual cause of this? IIRC, basic food contracts - while admittedly looking for the lowest bidder - specify the minimum standards for products to be delivered under those contracts. I somehow doubt that OSI's contract with Husi stated that expired meat met the conditions of the contract. Husi's employees were not delivering the products that OSI had contracted for.

    Oh I see, so the Ukraine military launches a full scale offensive to retake nearby Donetsk area but somehow it is the rebels at fault for breaking the ceasefire. So, how was it possible that the international teams were able to access the accident site ( granted -in the company, and under the eyes of the rebels) before Ukraine re-launched its offensive a few days ago?

    At 50 kilometers away from the crash site, Donetsk can hardly be called "nearby". And the cease-fire? The separatists would only allow for a cease-fire zone that was 10km in radius. The fighting over Donetsk was 40 kilometers away from the closest point of the cease-fire zone that the separatists would agree to. I don't think you can use fighting near Donestk (and that fighting is mostly on the FAR side of Donetsk) to accuse the Ukrainians of endangering the crash investigators.

    The way I'm reading the article, the man was sentenced to 8 years for the murder and the woman was sentenced to three years for being an accomplice after the fact. The man may be claiming that the woman also abused the daughter, but apparently he has never claimed the woman was the one who killed the child.

    The difficulty in this project from the beginning was the fact that the ground itself was the biggest obstacle to getting things cold enough to freeze. About a foot below the surface, the ground stabilizes at about 50°F no matter how much farther down you dig (until you start approaching areas affected by magma heating, naturally). That 50° chunk of earth acts like a reverse heat-sink that resists anything getting much colder. EVENTUALLY the earth will freeze around the wall, but it's going to take a lot longer than making a typical tray of ice cubes.

    Not quite true - OnLive's been offering streaming / cloud-based gaming since 2010 on their MicroConsole adapter. I'm sure there's others that's been in the market for a while too.

    But OnLive is not a console game maker, which is the qualifier that was stated in the article. So the article IS quite true (at least with regards to OnLive).

    If you sign a document in 1979 and the other signatories accept that signature, you can't apply that document to anything that happened prior to signing unless the document specifically SAYS you can. The U.N. is overstepping its authority here.

    The key result of the Three Mile Island accident (besides illuminating how badly the plant was designed) was the concept of a "normal accident" - meaning that the more complex and formally documented a site is, the higher the probability of a significant accident. Such an accident in such a facility becomes the "normal" type accident expected at that facility.

    Perrow identifies three conditions that make a system likely to be susceptible to Normal Accidents. These are:

    The system is complex

    The system is tightly coupled

    The system has catastrophic potential

    If the non-drinkers haven't done anything wrong, it's not fair to include them. Should everyone in my apartment block be turfed out if one of the tenants breaks the rules?

    How many of those "non-drinkers" reported the prohibited activity to school officials? I'm guessing none, and that would make them all accomplices - enabling the drinking to continue to be a problem. They get booted as well.

    OK thank you - it is a civile war. To be more correct - this is ethnic cleansing. Ukrainian governement (supported by EU and US) declared Ukraine for Ukrainian and started ethnic cleansing. It is a reason to be proud? If it is so - Germans can be proud of Holocaust

    It's amazing what the Russian propaganda machine can churn out. The success of their propaganda campaign has you completely ignoring that it was the separatists who started the unrest because the Ukrainian government was more interested in dealing with the EU than it was kowtowing to Putin. "Ethnic cleansing" had (and still has) nothing to do with it. But that's never stopped Soviet Russia from inventing "facts" before, so why would now be any different? Yes, "Soviet Russia". Your beloved Socialist Republic has returned, komrad! Khorosho!

    This has me very worried. If the US Kiev puppets will shoot down an airliner to frame the east-Russians, then attacking this group for the same purpose is small potatoes. I think the US wants to start WWIII.

    Ukrainian forces have been pushing back the separatists since before MH17 was shot down. They are WINNING this civil war, so why would they possibly feel desperate enough to shoot down an unrelated civilian airliner "to frame the east-Russians" (Huh? What do the people of Vladivostok have to do with this?). You strike me as one of those people who discounted all the evidence presented so far showing it was a separatist missile that downed the plane and instead believe the Russian general who claimed that all the bodies on the plane were dead before the plane was shot down because they were too badly decomposed - despite the fact that all the "already dead bodies" waved goodbye to their loved ones at the Shiopol airport only four hours earlier. If you are unfamiliar with Ockham's Razor, it basically states that among differing scenarios for a given situation, the one with the least number of assumptions is usually the correct one. So we have the separatists mistakenly shooting down an airliner thinking it was a Ukrainian transport (supported by both separatist AND Russian phone calls and social media), OR we have some bizarre Machiavellian plot where the Ukraine shoots down the plane with a SAM (even the separatists concede the damage to the wreckage discounts the "shot down by a fighter" theory) with the intent to discredit a foe they were already defeating. Then getting the U.S. and European authorities to back them in their claims even though they knew full well that there were MULTIPLE spy satellites monitoring the region - INCLUDING Russian spy satellites. Maybe I missed the press conference where the Russians show that the missile launch happened in territory held by the Ukrainian forces? No? Guess they don't want to show that the accusations were correct all along, huh?

    This is a city with children sleeping in their beds and the Ukranians are randomly lobbing massive rockets onto homes and apartments.

    What are families with "children sleeping in their beds" doing in Donetsk, the erstwhile center of the separatist movement? Ukraine forces have been slowly approaching the city town by town. Families that actually cared about the safety of their children left long ago. Anybody still there with children were either separatists, or placed the value of their property over the lives of their children.

    The threat came from Hwang Pyong-So, director of the military’s General Political Bureau,

    The man's title says all you need to know about his qualifications to make statements with any meaning to them. He's a politician "embedded" in the military. He probably threw that out there to remind his higher-ups that he was still alive.

    I'm all for having things on hand in case of emergency, but I have a few questions:

    1. Do the people receiving these tablets know they are NOT supposed to take them unless there is an accident at the plant that causes a release of the Iodine-131 isotope? I foresee a bunch of residents taking the pills every time the failure of a piece of equipment causes a SCRAM, which normally causes no radiation leakage at all. OR I see a bunch of residents taking them starting as soon as they receive them, like vitamins.

    2. Do these pills have a shelf life and does the electric company plan to replace all the pills before they expire?

    The most hilarious accusation out of Russia was the one where they claimed that the bodies were too decomposed to have been alive on MH17 at the time it was shot down. I suppose the families that said goodbye to their loved ones at Shiopol airport didn't realize they were actually already zombies.

    “MOSCOW — A top pro-Russia rebel commander in eastern Ukraine has given a bizarre version of events surrounding the Malaysian jetliner crash — suggesting many of the victims may have died days before the plane took off. The pro-rebel website Russkaya Vesna on Friday quoted Igor Girkin as saying he was told by people at the crash site that “a significant number of the bodies weren’t fresh,” adding that he was told they were drained of blood and reeked of decomposition.”

    Frungy's suggestions were all things they could have additionally done, but none of those things are realistic:

    Imagine the cost of wasted manpower because every person complaining about a stalker had a police car parked in front of their house 24-hours. I imagine on any given day all the patrol cars in the division would be tied-up in babysitting potential victims' homes.

    Ditto with assigning an officer to meet her when she left work and follow her home to do a "sweep". If she thought her life was disrupted before, then not being able to do anything after work (shopping, etc.) and be forced to go directly home because they were taking up a patrol officer's time would only add to the disruption. Once home, she couldn't go back out because that would have made the escort pointless. Of course, the officer would have to meet her at her door when she leaves for work to escort her as well. One officer for every person reporting a stalker...

    The mobile panic button would have been worthless. She could have pushed it as soon as she saw him and she still would have been mortally wounded by the time police arrived. But she wouldn't have been able to push the button that soon because of the habit of any woman when they get home. The first thing women do when they get home is put their purse/bag down before even taking their coat off. If he's between the bag and the victim when he reveals himself, the button will never get pushed.

    Ditto for a can of mace. It's in the bag and out of her reach when she needs it. Anybody intent on killing someone isn't going to let the victim dash to a bag containing a potential weapon.

    Eggs are left out all day in super markets desho?

    Really? They have to be in a refrigerated case here in my country. About the only place you'll find them left out is at a Farmer's Market, and then you're expected to refrigerated them as soon as you get home.
