In effect, the Allergan deal may have shifted the balance of power in favor of brand-name companies and upset the balance the patent system sought to achieve, especially if still other drug makers pursue similar deals with Native American tribes, Sachs explained. If that happens, she speculated that Congress may be forced to modify the Hatch-Waxman Act.
That vulnerability, according to a report on the data breach by William Baird & Co., was in a popular open-source software package called Apache Struts, which is a programming framework for building web applications in Java. Two vulnerabilities in Struts have been discovered so far in 2017. One was announced in March, and another was announced earlier this week on Sept. 4. At the moment, it’s unclear which vulnerability the Baird report was referring to.
That was false: Even the chair of Dartmouth’s College Democrats, Jennifer West, said Thursday that she held an out-of-state ID while studying and organizing voters in New Hampshire.
President Ronald Reagan said that government isn’t the answer, it is the problem, and conservatives have found that line very resonant over the years. In Cruz’s run for president last year, he called for the abolition of the Internal Revenue Service. He did not mention this last week. It would be hard to raise an extra $150 billion without the progressive income tax unless you could persuade Mexico to foot the bill.
Shrift? Not a word you hear every day. In fact, apart from in this expression, it is now so rarely used that it’s hard to think of a shrift that isn’t short. The verb form, shrive, is also now an almost forgotten antique. A shrift is a penance (a prescribed penalty) imposed by a priest in a confession in order to provide absolution, often when the confessor was near to death. In the 17th century, criminals were sent to the scaffold immediately after sentencing and only had time for a ‘short shrift’ before being hanged.
The missing ingredients, Tufekci believes, are the structures and communication patterns that appear when a fixed group works together over time. That practice puts the oil in the well-oiled machine. It is what contemporary adhocracy appears to lack, and what projects such as the postwar civil-rights movement had in abundance. And it is why, she thinks, despite their limits in communication, these earlier protests often achieved more.
The study followed 7,300 workers for 12 years, and found that people who stand all day were more likely to get heart disease.
Maybe it’s just me, but I’m beginning to think that the common link here is “work.”
According to numbers that were just released this week, 49.7 million Americans are living in poverty. That is a brand new all-time record high.
Relative comparisons are less important than absolute values. About seven of those stars on the American flag live in poverty. We should do better than that.
“Since we did not control or have access to this site, we were not aware that these documents were still on the web, much less, were publicly facing,” TigerSwan said. “The resume files in question have now been properly secured and no additional risk of exposure exists.”
Hi, Mr. Swan? I have some bad news for you about how digital copies work…
