Google translate isn’t doing too much of a job on this one – but a group of german bishops is refusing to hand over personnel files in a child abuse research project. Too bad it isn’t a criminal investigation yet, or I’d suggest throwing the lot in jail for obstruction of justice until they cooperate.
In the Germany-wide network of active priests have been the decision of the bishops numerous complaints – gone. The canon emeritus of Munich Winfried Ayman shares the concerns. In a statement, the network will start this week to go public, it says that the Bishops’ Conference gave the impression that the "access to documents without the consent of the individual all priests, deacons and Order – belonging to the general suspicion of sexual abuse of minors" were accepted. This is a "wrong signal" to the public and "a flagrant breach of trust between clergy and their bishops."
There are things that people just do every day they may have done every day their entire careers, been working for 20 years, that just are error prone and are things that wind up causing you problems as you go forward. When you look at these larger teams… millions of lines of code, and so many developers… figuring out better practices is really important. I’ve really gotten behind the static code analysis. The Microsoft analysis tools are always on and warnings are errors. Can’t build the game if it complains about anything. And even when it’s wrong – even when you have something you can prove “it’s guaranteed OK” – that’s actually a good time to step back and say “if you had to explain this to me, maybe you should have to change the way it’s working.” If the analyzer can’t figure it out, other programmers might not be able to figure it out, and that will cause problems too…
strugglingWhen he was Fed chairman and had access to the best economic data and minds on the globe, Alan Greenspan famously liked to forecast the direction of the economy by studying sales of men’s underwear. Even during the best of times, underwear purchases remain pretty flat, he noted. (What dude who has just gotten a raise thinks: "Ah yes! I’ll upgrade my entire collection of briefs now!") Only during the worst of times—when people are really, really cutting back—do boxer and brief purchases drop off.
The reverse logic usually holds for America’s dollar stores. Customers flock to the chains, which sell thousands of products for a buck or $2 or $10, when times get tough. When the economy improves, they shop at nicer outlets, like Target. But there are some worrisome signs that the prolonged economic malaise has changed even this retail paradigm. Middle-class households remain reluctant to spend. And cash-strapped consumers are finding even dollar stores a bit too expensive.
Up to 150 students at a Missouri high school that ordered "Slaughterhouse-Five" pulled from its shelves can get a free copy of the novel, courtesy of the Kurt Vonnegut Memorial Library, library officials said on Thursday.
The offer for students at Republic High School comes on the heels of the Republic School Board’s decision to remove Vonnegut’s novel and Sarah Ockler’s “Twenty Boy Summer” from the curriculum and the school library shelves.
In his complaint, the Missouri State University associate business professor called on district officials to stop using textbooks and other materials “that create false conceptions of American history and government or that teach principles contrary to Biblical morality and truth.”
China said Friday that debt deals in the United States and in Europe would not be enough to save their economies and "concrete steps" must be taken to rebalance the global economy.
"The only way the Americans have come up with to improve economic growth has been to take on new loans to repay the old ones," a blistering commentary published on the official Xinhua news agency said.
"To eat May’s grain in April, however, will never be a permanent solution to a problem," the report said.
China warned on Wednesday that Washington’s efforts to raise the US limit on borrowing had failed to defuse America’s "debt bomb" and signalled that Beijing would further diversify its holdings away from the dollar.
“And verily, thou shalt pick and choose which of my laws thou shalt keep and force upon others; for only that which makes thee comfortable or feel a smugness in thy heart shall guide you.”
