schestowitzI have been an advocate for decriminalizing marijuana for years, worked in the industry and ran a place and truly got to see the ins n outs of it. When it comes to Olympics and what not it isn't right to keep testing but as an athlete you know not to put stuff in your body as that is the sacrifice they gotta make to play the game.Jul 05 00:58

schestowitz"The harder they try to show how much good they're doing, the more harm they are generally doing under the hood, it seems.  The worst companies make charitable donations to causes that line their own pockets, slap an inclusiveness label onto their logo and home page, extoll their own virtue from the rooftops, and then proceed to commit atrocities while everyone is distracted by the good PR."Jul 05 01:02

schestowitzThe CCP is an oppressive regime, as was the USSR and pretty much every country in which the US has intervened. The only way someone can write an article like this is of they are drinking the comrades kool aid and ignoring the lack of individual liberties in the places the US has intervened since WWII. So of course the US won't cooperate with a country that enslaves its citizens and releases a viral pandemic on its own population and then allows it Jul 05 01:05

schestowitz                      <blockquote>Jul 05 09:09
schestowitz                        <p>A few weeks back, one of my readers contacted me and asked me if I could do an article, newbie style, explaining the steps I take in customizing the vanilla Plasma desktop to my liking. And I thought, why not indeed. Although I've done this exercise many times before, in various shapes and forms, I've never explicitly went through it in one go, as a complete, sequential piece. </p>Jul 05 09:09
schestowitz                        <p> Well, today, I shall rectify that. But let us set the expectations ere you continue any further. One, you should go through my Linux section and read a dozen odd guides on various Plasma tools and features. Perhaps start with my Plasma is the best piece, and then continue yonder. Two, this is MY customization, so if you don't like the Dedoimedo Haute Couture, then stop, in the name of love. Three, Plasma doesn't really Jul 05 09:09
schestowitzneed any tweaking. But it's a flexible desktop, and it lets you do whatever you like, thus everything I'm going to show you today can be accomplished with zero command line and zero third-party tools. Begin, we must.</p></blockquote></li>Jul 05 09:09

-TechBytesBot/ | Double trouble: EBA finds legal justification for the prohibition of double patenting (G4/19) - The IPKatJul 05 22:56
schestowitz"Jul 05 22:56
schestowitzThe decision looks at a glance as giving a practical and pragmatic solution to the problem of double patenting. It fails however to convince.Jul 05 22:56
schestowitzThe problem occurs mainly with an “internal” priority that is a first filing as EP application followed by a second EP filing claiming the priority of the earlier one. Jul 05 22:56
schestowitzClaiming that the “Travaux préparatoires” express the will of the contracting states although they have not taken a formal decision on this point goes a trifle too far for my liking. Jul 05 22:56
schestowitzThat purely formal rules can also have an influence on the substance is not to be denied, but when it is about Art 125, it can only be about formal aspects. Jul 05 22:56
schestowitzWho can decide that an applicant cannot have a legitimate interest in doing something? The mere fact that such a double fling occurs shows that an applicant has a legitimate interest. Jul 05 22:56
schestowitzThe problem of double protection should be dealt with at national level as it is for instance the case when a PCT contracting state is designed directly or via the EPO. Jul 05 22:56
