Funny. But seriously. Do not vote for lying Trump. It will be a whole lot worst when George Bush was President

"Another Fabricated Lie"
Trump, The Fabricator in Chief of Lies claims Hillary wants to take away your Guns. Not true. But that doesn't stop Trump from lying about it. (What doesn't he not lie about!)
I wonder from this particular event are people banned from bring a gun to a Trump event? What are you afraid of Trump? The Secret Service have guns too.

WIRED - ALL GUNS CAN kill, but they do not kill equally.

Compare the damage an AR-15 and a 9mm handgun can do to the human body: “One looks like a grenade went off in there,” says Peter Rhee, a trauma surgeon at the University of Arizona. “The other looks like a bad knife cut.”

The AR-15 is America’s most popular rifle. It has also been the weapon of choice in mass shootings from Sandy Hook to Aurora to San Bernardino. In Orlando this past week, the shooter used a Sig Sauer MCX, an AR-15 style rifle originally developed for special ops, to kill 49 people in the Pulse nightclub. The carnage sparked new calls to reinstate a ban on assault rifles like the AR-15, which were designed as weapons of war.

It’s possible to argue about everything when it comes to the politics of guns—including about the definition of “assault rifle” itself—but it’s harder to argue about physics. So let’s consider the physics of an AR-15.

A bullet with more energy can do more damage. Its total kinetic energy is equal to one-half the mass of the bullet times its velocity squared. The bullet from a handgun is—as absurd as it may sound—slow compared to that from an AR-15. It can be stopped by the thick bone of the upper leg. It might pass through the body, only to become lodged in skin, which is surprisingly elastic.

The bullet from an AR-15 does an entirely different kind of violence to the human body. It’s relatively small, but it leaves the muzzle at three times the speed of a handgun bullet. It has so much energy that it can disintegrate three inches of leg bone. “It would just turn it to dust,” says Donald Jenkins, a trauma surgeon at University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. If it hits the liver, “the liver looks like a jello mold that’s been dropped on the floor.” And the exit wound can be a nasty, jagged hole the size of an orange.

These high-velocity bullets can damage flesh inches away from their path, either because they fragment or because they cause something called cavitation. When you trail your fingers through water, the water ripples and curls. When a high-velocity bullet pierces the body, human tissues ripples as well—but much more violently. The bullet from an AR-15 might miss the femoral artery in the leg, but cavitation may burst the artery anyway, causing death by blood loss. A swath of stretched and torn tissue around the wound may die. That’s why, says Rhee, a handgun wound might require only one surgery but an AR-15 bullet wound might require three to ten.

Then, multiply the damage from a single bullet by the ease of shooting an AR-15, which doesn’t kick. “The gun barely moves. You can sit there boom boom boom and reel off shots as fast as you can move your finger,” says Ernest Moore, a trauma surgeon at Denver Health and editor of the Journal of Trauma and Acute Surgery, which just published an issue dedicated to gun violence.

Handguns kill plenty of people too, of course, and they’re responsible for the vast majority of America’s gun deaths. But a single bullet from a handgun is not likely to be as deadly as one from an AR-15.

This needs to be done

When it comes to choosing passwords, a lot of us are very, very dumb. But Microsoft may have a solution to our stupidity: It has plans to create a dynamically updated list of moronic passwords that it won’t let you use.

In a blog post, Microsoft explains that it’s putting to use the insights it can glean from millions of leaked passwords in order to increase security. Rather than simply imposing rules about password length and complexity, it’s using publicly available information to create a list of commonly used passwords, which it simply won’t allow you to use.

The list will be continually updated based on new password leaks, so as people shift to using other dumb passwords, they’ll also be banned. Who knows, eventually we might all use strong passwords. Imagine!

The company claims to have already rolled out the feature to Microsoft Account Service—that’s Outlook, Xbox, OneDrive and the like—and it will also add the feature to accounts that use its Azure AD login system. You won’t notice a lot of difference until you choose a dumb password, at which point you’ll be prompted to stop being a moron—sorry, to “choose a password that’s harder for people to guess.”

Farewell, “123456", you were useful while you were allowed

Trump: Believe what I say, Not what I do.
Trump's new Hotel in Washington D.C. is filled with goods made from over seas. Mostly from China.
I wonder if Trump's personal home furnishing is also made in China?
Yeah, Making America Great Again.

Yikes! That gotta hurt.

The European Commission on Tuesday came out with an official ruling in its investigation of Apple’s tax practices in the region. The verdict isn’t at all favorable to the iPhone maker and comes crashing in about a week before Apple’s iPhone 7 announcement party.

“Member States cannot give tax benefits to selected companies – this is illegal under EU state aid rules,” EU’s competition commissioner, Margrethe Vestage said in Brussels this morning, while delivering the verdict. “The Commission’s investigation concluded that Ireland granted illegal tax benefits to Apple, which enabled it to pay substantially less tax than other businesses over many years. In fact, this selective treatment allowed Apple to pay an effective corporate tax rate of 1 percent on its European profits in 2003 down to 0.005 per cent in 2014.

The €13 billion ($14.5 billion) verdict against Apple is the largest ever recovery order issued by the Commission, The Register notes. That’s almost ten times bigger than the €1.4 billion ruling against Electricite de France last year.

The investigation, launched in 2014, discovered that Apple managed to route 90% of its overseas profits through its two Irish subsidiaries, including Apple Sales International and Apple Operations Europe. The EU found that the two incorporated companies were fantasy organizations, which “did not correspond to economic reality: almost all sales profits recorded by the two companies were internally attributed to a ‘head office'” which the commission found only existed on paper.”

“[Profits] allocated to the “head offices” were not subject to tax in any country under specific provisions of the Irish tax law, which are no longer in force,” the ruling says. “As a result of the allocation method endorsed in the tax rulings, Apple only paid an effective corporate tax rate that declined from 1% in 2003 to 0.005 percent in 2014 on the profits of Apple Sales International.”

The Register further reports that critics of Apple’s tax deal in Ireland believe the country’s government made bespoke arrangements with Apple in 1991 and 2007 which allowed the iPhone maker to dodge a tax rate of 12.5% in Ireland and pay less than 1% on EU sales in some years.

Tim Cook argued that the corporation operates within the same tax structure as all other business in Ireland and that it has not received selective support.

The Commission launched similar investigations against Fiat and Amazon (Luxembourg), and Starbucks (the Netherlands) for their tax practices in those countries.

Even though they used safety lines. You still need nerves of steel to do what they have done.
