Tired of how the scientific discovery process is funded (or not)? Then take a look at this.

Tim - have you been able to create a Group Manager role similar to what is in VOMRS to allow a person to manage the users in a specific tenant/project without having full admin rights to the entire cloud?
CERN has 11,000 physicists who use the lab's facilities including the central IT department resoures. As with any research environment, there are many students, PhDs and other project members who join one of the experiments a...

I received the following email from a friend in Toronto, today. He's an upstanding fellow, a Materials Architect, is building a beautiful airplane, like mine. Anyway, it seems his son attempted to visit Detroit over the weekend...

Happy Memorial Day, gents.
We had our long weekend a week ago (Victoria Day), so I’m at work today.


Here’s an interesting story:
On Saturday, my son Max, and one of his roommates, and a friend/DJ that was visiting from France, got in a car to go to the Detroit Electronic Music Festival.
All three are electronic music producers/DJs.
They drove the three hours to the border without incident.
Just before 9PM, Max sent us a text message saying that they were about to cross the border.
The next message we got from him was at 2 AM, saying that they were back in Canada.
They had been detained by the border guards/homeland security, questioned, strip searched, “slapped around” and called “dirtbags” and “pieces of shit”, with the officers also making fun of the music they create/listen to, calling it fag music.
They were eventually turned back, and denied entry, with no reason given.

So now, Max probably has a “flag” attached to his name, and will get the 3rd degree every time he crosses the border in the future.
And you can all sleep well, knowing that Homeland Security is doing such a good job of keeping America free of terror and techno.
The crumbling city of Detroit must really appreciate having tourism dollars turned away, based on a whim of a police officer wannabe.

The amount of money that has been poured into Homeland Security, all in the name of fighting “terror”, is apalling.
Last year, I crossed the border between Manitoba and Minnesota, out in the middle of nowhere, and the brand new Customs building was incredible. It was so elaborate. A HUGE (40,000 sq ft total) cedar and glass building, with 15 foot ceilings, and about 6 people “working” in an office that was probably 10,000 sq ft., with every piece of equipment in the place brand new. The building features a bunch of green technology. Don’t get me wrong – I like interesting architecture, and support the idea of spending a bit more money to make public buildings more interesting to look at, and more welcoming, and efficient, but I thought the economy was struggling… That Customs building had a budget of $46 Million before beginning – who knows what it actually cost to build.

When we visited Glacier National Park last year, the border crossing there was absurd. Going into Canada was fine, they just want to make sure you have the documents you'll need to get back. Going back, the US border guards were just absurd asshats. Rude, overly serious, pointlessly delaying for the sake of delaying. If they treat US citizens that way I can only imagine how they treat folks from other parts. Which reminds me that the other thing I noticed was how many more foreign tourists there were on the Canadian side. (International peace park indeed...)

No kidding. Sounds like those two had been at each other's throats before.
