  1. It seems that Hedge funds have been stupid with their money and shorted so much that market stunts like this cause them to fall badly
  2. Matthew 19:16-26 The Rich Young Man 16 And behold, a man came up to him, saying, “Teacher, what good deed must I do to have eternal life?” 17 And he said to him, “Why do you ask me about what is good? There is only one who is good. If you would enter life, keep the commandments.” 18 He said to him, “Which ones?” And Jesus said, “You shall not murder, You shall not commit adultery, You shall not steal, You shall not bear false witness, 19 Honor your father and mother, and, You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” 20 The young man said to him, “All these I have kept. What do I still lac
  3. Clearly it is better let people die on hunger and cold than just letting them out of their misery and accepting that both will lead to same result
  4. lets put those unwanted people on consecration camps and burn them, and world is saved
  5. Yeah human rights are just bad for people Article 22. Everyone, as a member of society, has the right to social security and is entitled to realization, through national effort and international co-operation and in accordance with the organization and resources of each State, of the economic, social and cultural rights indispensable for his dignity and the free development of his personality. Article 25. (1) Everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of himself and of his family, including food, clothing, housing and medical care
  6. One example of problems with US data protection laws is that we can't use US based cloud providers like Microsoft's Google's and Amazon's services for certain data, because there is no guarantee that those services and US follows EU's data protection laws. Which has sometimes forced us to change architecture how our SAAS services work or/and where they are hosted or ways to obfuscate data before it is loaded to cloud platform services. And it isn't just personal data, but also security of critical supply like food production
  7. US don't have clear cut legislation but patchwork of federal and state laws which means that it is quite obfuscated what is data which privacy should be protected. This goes both for private and public sectors
  8. I would not be favor of such decision making. Human rights have not really change in past, because Universal Declaration of Human Rights is actually first time in history when such rights are actually defined in sense that they are natural rights of all human being and even then they weren't approved by majority of humanity
  9. Article 30 of Universal Declaration of Human Rights. "Nothing in this Declaration may be interpreted as implying for any State, group or person any right to engage in any activity or to perform any act aimed at the destruction of any of the rights and freedoms set forth herein." If country claims to follow human rights, they should make sure that democratic process can't take any of the human rights from any group for any reason. In case of conflicting rights neither party should be oppressed by other's rights. Human rights are specifically designed to reign in tyranny of majority
  10. Yes. Companies have right to hold their opinions too. Also for some reason people don't seem to care other human rights like Article 14. (1) Everyone has the right to seek and to enjoy in other countries asylum from persecution. (2) This right may not be invoked in the case of prosecutions genuinely arising from non-political crimes or from acts contrary to the purposes and principles of the United Nations. Article 3. Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person. Article 5. No one shall be subjected to torture or to cruel, inhuman or de
  11. Part of free speech is that people including companies don't have to publish anything they don't want
  12. https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/trump-mob-capitol/ Updated to note that there is no evidence John Sullivan is associated with antifa or the Black Lives Matter movement. New York Post also is bit skeptical that Sullivan is part of any movement, but they seem to be quite sure that he isn't part of Antifa https://nypost.com/2021/01/15/who-is-john-sullivan-accused-provocateur-charged-in-capitol-riot/ https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/does-jade-sacker-work-for-cnn/ Edit: added https://www.washingtonpost.com/nation/2021/01/16/sullivan-video-arrested/
  13. Currently all the university degrees are paid by state and only way to get admission is through application where people are picked according to pre-set rules that consist of valuing their matriculation exam scores and how many points they scored in university's entrance exams and people get in scoring order. Although there is possible to study university course in so called open university programs where students pay fee per credit (about 15€ per credit (credit means about 26.67 h worth of study, typical course is 3-6 credits, bachelor degree is about 180 credits and master is about 300 credi
