After how many times Jurassic Park has failed why is there still investors?
How many times has this place failed or expeditions to it have failed? Seems like the liability lawsuits alone wouldve ensured that park wouldnt have ever been remade.

In the wake of the last two mass shootings, I didn't know that I would have a harder time buying a puppy than a gun. There are even more restrictions to join Diplomacy.

Remove the no orders/saved/ready icons
There are 10 minutes to go and still !! is shown next to a country. It's probably going to NMR. This allows countries around it to make moves that they normally wouldn't confident that the sensible supports and moves to SCs won't take place. Which unbalances the game.

If the icons were removed then it is less obvious that an NMR is about to happen. Is there a reason for the icons that I'm missing?

CD vs NMR
I'm looking at my CD's and NMR's, and I noticed that in one game that I had a Civil Disorder, it gave me 12 NMR's, another CD 3 NMR's, and then the rest of my CD's I have 0 NMR's. Can anyone explain how this works and why there's such a huge discrepancy on this? And is this also a "double jeopardy" against my Reliability Rating to count NMR's and CD's from the same game? This part has always confused me. Thanks!

New Zealand has a new Prime Minister
Labour did a full coalition deal with our weird centrist version of UKIP, so that'll be interesting. Greens to make up the numbers with confidence and supply in exchange for policy concessions and ministers outside of cabinet. I for one am cautiously optimistic about the coalition of chaos.

It's OK, Kansas is just putting a shot across my bows. I've actually had a few more important things to do in the last few days than give him the reply I promised him. First, the relevant thread has slipped towards the oblivion it deserves. But I did look through it a few days back and technically I have to agree that he did not make a particular assertion, it was made by one of his fellow travellers. When I criticised the assertion Kansas criticised my criticism of the assertion, so although he didn't make the assertion, he defended it's basic premise.
So I apologise for not responding earlier, I'm still quite tired after travelling and doing real Security work in the real world, then travelling home. There are restrictions on my commenting in "Internet social media" prior to, and during the actual work about what I was doing. It's hardly "high end" stuff, nor trivial. I was simply asked to help provide extra security (as part of a team ) backstage at a pop/rock concert. Help make sure visiting international artists and the crew staging the event were adequately protected. They were & I will be well remunerated for my efforts.
So I will oblige Kansas Boyd and give him that which he desires, an admission in the forum that he is correct in claiming that he did not make a particular assertion about media bias.
Hopefully that satisfies his delicate ego.

Ridiculous conspiracy theories:
Kansas Boyd is the WebDiplomacy account of Secret Russian agents as part of a conspiracy to infiltrate conservative political groups in the USA.
And I'm a front for secret North Korean infiltration of WebDiplomacy. But I will defect to the west if I'm given a decent dinner & Kylie Minogue for desert. LoL.
( Oh Kylie is touring Australia at present, but it was not her concert at which I worked. If "her people" asked nicely, I might well be happy to help protect her. )

Kansas Boyd might like to consider conceding that when I express an opinion about the need for adequate gun control laws, there is a distinct possibility that I might know "what I'm talking about". My well remunerated services were sought partly as a response to the tragic events at a public concert in Las Vegas. It's also possible I have recently been reading interesting assessments about public safety. So it's possible that my views on gun control laws are based on more than just what the media disseminates & ideological desires & propaganda from the vested interests of US gun manufacturers.

I expressed that last bit poorly. It should be... It's possible that my views on gun control laws are NOT based on what the media disseminates...etc.....(to) propaganda from the vested interests of US gun manufacturers.
It is possible that my views on gun control laws are based on an informed understanding of the complex challenges facing professionals who work to do their best to ensure public safety in a "Western Liberal Democratic Nation" situated in the Pacific.

More than about 5% of gun deaths come from things other than gang violence, armed robberies/assaults, suicides and illegally possessed guns.

Refugees.. Does Uganda treat refugees better than many wealthy Nations ?
More refugees from South Sudan entered Uganda in the last 12 months than entered Europe. Uganda allows them to enter, to work, gives many a small plot of land to farm. To appease locals in regional areas where refugees settle the Government allocates 30% of aid to local communities. My own Nation, Australia, a relatively wealthy nation treats some refugees well, but others with harsh treatment, incarceration in detention camps.
