    Instead of focusing on recovery, Los Angeles had been forced to close all of its coronavirus testing sites as a safety precaution, he said. Health officials were worried about “super spreaders” being among the protesters, potentially impeding the city’s progress in beating back the virus.
    Calling it "collective punishment" is a stretch.
    True. It's denying a universal human right.

    Article 3 of the Declaration of the Universal Human Rights protects the right to life.

    Has USA even signed that declaration? at least they have stayed the fuck out of haag's war crimes tribunal.

    Yes. It was ratified on the third session of the UN. The USA voted in favor.

    At least android producers make things that are repairable, and data recoverable .
    Oh noes. In all my 20+ years using apple devices, Ive never had anything repaired and I ve never personally pulled data off one by butting it into target mode. Ive also never rebuild an HFS+ Raid array after the controller died.

    Maybe just learn how.
    Apple are pursuing a strategy of no data recovery and making things not repairable. And then even when things are repairable they will simply lie to you about cost and encourage you to buy a new one. Its not even a new strategy for them going all the ways back to ipods where batteries were not replaceable until a class action law suit.

    Maybe learn how , not helpful when there are no parts available to 3rd party repairers. Or when schematics are not made available under the pretext of trade secrets.

    You should follow the right to repair debate going on in the US currently to get Apples views on whether you should be able to repair your device.
    "no data recovery"

    I have absolutely no idea what you are talking about. The right to repair "debate" is hobbyists asking apple to be a parts supplying business as well. Allowing "repairability" by untrained hobbyists is certainly going to lead to smaller, more compact, more efficient devices.
    But we need sustainable and therefore repariable tech. It's less about some kinda "rights", but more about (natural) resources and ofc climate impact of gathering these.

    But it crafted the Declaration of Independence.

    "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."

    One could argue that being happy implies being healthy...

    hate to break it to you buddy, but that rag was also entirely cool with treating human beings as property.
    Viking, n.:
    1. Daring Scandinavian seafarers, explorers, adventurers, entrepreneurs world-famous for their aggressive, nautical import business, highly leveraged takeovers and blue eyes.
    2. Bloodthirsty sea pirates who ravaged northern Europe beginning in the 9th century.

    Hagar's note: The first definition is much preferred; the second is used only by malcontents, the envious, and disgruntled owners of waterfront property.

    Is there any scenario you see where slavery could have been outright abolished in the former Slave-holding British colonies in 1776?

    You're aware, I'm sure, that slavery wasn't in reality ended in the UK till well after (early 1800's) and not in the Empire for much longer.

    You're also aware that British captains were the source of almost all of the Atlantic Slave trade, pre and post independence.

    You probably also know that your own country didn't abolish slavery until 1847. Some Danes were happily "treating people as property" till then as well, close to 75 years after we wrote "that rag".

    See, that's the thing about the widespread European rape and abuse of the world, you rarely shat where you ate, choosing instead of mutilate and mass murder humanity on a grand scale in your various little overseas Empires, leaving massive problems others have had to deal with now for centuries.

    By the way, most historians would agree that "that rag" paved the ideological way for the abolitionist movement in the U.S., the eventual Civil War and end of slavery in the United States.

    The people who quote that rag the most often seem the happiest to treat black people as less than human though. Weird eh?
    Look, the wages you withheld from the workmen who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord of Hosts. You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves for slaughter.

    well, actually, it was 3/5 of a person for the purposes of their masters voice. The first example of institutional Racism in America, and of Racist politicians cheating their fellow countrymen to amplify their otherwise useless ideals

    At most the Constitution has a symbolic value. But its practical value has been getting slowly eroded by extremely cynical conservative justices (and some terrible liberal ones) for the past few decades.

    Sure a lot of it is the funding and culture of the police, but the steady stream of deferential rulings has also led us to this point.

    it has been stripped to protect business and wealth a d enforce the law upon many that respect it while those that don't run rampant. The Democrats keep faltering and being such centrist inept fools as to to make real reform when they have power, meaning they lose it the second they get it due to dissatisfaction

    NEW YORK (Reuters) - The Trump administration said this week it will temporarily allow some impurities in alcohol-based hand sanitizer to ensure access to the product during the coronavirus pandemic, reversing course after having tightened restrictions in April.

    The move will provide clarity on impurity limits for a slew of fuel ethanol companies that had switched to producing hand sanitizer during the outbreak, after regulators discovered some of the impurities, including cancer-causing acetaldehyde, several weeks ago.

    “We are specifying interim levels of certain impurities that we have determined can be tolerated for a relatively short period of time,” the Food and Drug Administration said on its website.

    “We believe that our temporary guidances sets the proper level of flexibility at the current time to help protect Americans during this public health emergency.”

    The FDA guidance allows up to 2 parts per million of benzene and 50 ppm of acetaldehyde, according to the website.

    The ethanol industry invested millions of dollars since March to ramp up the output of corn-based alcohol sanitizer at a time when fuel demand has slumped from the pandemic.

    Twenty-seven plants are currently producing ethanol for sanitizer, the Renewable Fuels Association said.

    RFA President Geoff Cooper said the limits are overly restrictive.

    “We do not believe the new guidance will help alleviate the hand sanitizer shortage in any meaningful way,” Cooper said, adding that benzene is not present at any level in the ethanol the industry provides for sanitizer or other purposes.

    Just got an email from our vice principal.

    Background: Yesterday was the first day the seventh graders were back in school. In small groups of seven to eight students they had a single subject for 90 minutes. No recess, no break, no mingling with other groups or classes.

    Now onto the mail: the father and grandfather of one seventh grader were tested positive for Covid-19. Yet they still sent their kid to school. Now the teacher along with all seven students from that group are quarantined and will be tested. Thanks to our strict distancing of classrooms and groups, only those need to stay at home. The room got a thorough disinfectant treatment.
    I don't know what the legal consequences will be, but the law has some hefty fines for such stuff.

    Aren't most of the kids in your school from households in poverty? Not really much point in fining them.
    Look, the wages you withheld from the workmen who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord of Hosts. You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves for slaughter.
