If you care about typesetting and legibility, you sometimes really do need . It prevents the browser from inserting a line break between two words that belong together, like February 26th or Louis XIV. IIRC nbsp is short for non-breaking space.
It was never designed to add arbitrary spacing to your layout, though ;)
I agree with you that citizenship should not protect you from the consequences of your actions. Even so, I don't understand how a targeted drone strike in Yemen is an acceptable choice for the USG, regardless of who is killed.
Would it be okay for another country to conduct such drone strikes on US soil? If not, which countries are allowed do do such things, and where, and why?
How can you prove that lives were saved by the drone strike?
"OK" and "allowed" in this context practically refers to whether and what the host/target country will do about it. If that's "nothing" or very close thereto, then by Law Of The Jungle (which is the nature of military action) the answer is "yes". If that's "the perpetrators will be hunted down & killed, and the presiding government overthrown, and maybe another country's government will also get overthrown while we're at it", then the answer is "no".
The point of military action is that all other viable diplomatic options have been exhausted, and something must be done to stop an avowed enemy. We're not going to sit around waiting for known terrorists to carry out successful attacks on innocents before doing something to stop them. "Reflective contemplation is not required in the presence of an upraised knife." Once such military action is deemed necessary, the question then is whether a single drone destroying a few rooms and their occupants with zero direct risk to US troops is (or isn't) preferable to destroying several city blocks (at minimum) and their occupants with significant risk to our personnel. You demand proof, but only from a position of prejudiciously rejecting any given.
FWIW: The "upraised knife" quote is Oliver Wendell Holmes, in Brown v US, and goes "Detached reflection cannot be demanded in the presence of an uplifted knife." This is Holmes rejecting the idea that a defendant invoking self defense must carefully reason whether he can safely flee, rather than employing deadly force.
This is also the much-overlooked basis for "stand your ground" laws, which are not a license for citizens to kill, but are instead a reminder to the state that if deadly force is warranted then retreat is not a viable option to demand of the defendant.
Android's encryption is pretty useless, as it forces you to use the same key for the encryption and for the screen lock. So either you have a secure encryption key and a way too complicated screen lock key, or you have a reasonable screen lock key, and a totally insecure encryption key (that can be brute-forced in less than a second).
Why would they implement the feature that way? Why not have a boot passphrase? Wouldn't you need some custom hardware to extract the keys out of RAM? And Google is in the right position to mandate some extra security hardware, if needed to provide a secure design.
Not true anymore. Device encryption can differ from lock screen nowadays. But speaking of lock screen, people have built robot to brute force it, so shutting down after a few failures is definitely a good idea.
Friendly locals are usually able to get a sim card for you without any delay. I got my first one from a rickshaw driver (I actually bought his active sim card and phone) for a $10 more than it would have cost. A guesthouse owner did the same thing on another occasion. Make sure to ask nicely, because these people are on the hook if you do illegal things with those cards.
I once went through the official channels, too, and it was much easier than I thought. I didn't have a passport photo either, so I went across the street to get one taken. Then I came back the next day and picked up a working sim card. It's only a bother if you need the sim card right away.
In Germany, the NFL website doesn't allow you to watch all games for free. You have to purchase the NFL game pass, which is around $200 per season IIRC (there's multiple packages), which is the same you'd pay in the US.
