The alternative is to ban "cost plus" contracts. Screw up and overrun the costs specified in you bid? Tough cookies. Eat it on your P&L leader, and do a better job bidding next time.
Another, at least as good and maybe better, option is antitrust. Break up the globs back into Northrop, Hughes, General Dynamics, Lockheed, Marietta, Glenn Martin Co, Grumman, McDonnell Aircraft, Douglas Aircraft, Convair, North American, Republic, Boeing, Rockwell, and so on... so that there are a dozen manufacturers actually bidding competitively for contracts with incentives to keep costs under control, lest the contract goto a more reliable competitor.
After all, when there are only two choices, why *Should* Lockheed Martin (from their perspective) deliver a fully-functional air or space craft as promised, and on-time and on-budget. What's the government going to do after all, go to Northrop "2 billion dollar stealth bomber" Grumman?
You haven't thought out the consequences. If these are all bid a Firm Fixed Price (the alternative), every bidder is going to pad their costs to compensate for the possibility of things going wrong at some point during the development . Depending on the likelihood of that (cutting-edge technology, etc.) this will be anywhere from 15 to 30 percent of the original estimate. Would you rather pay 20% more overall, or take the chance of a 10% overrun?
A civil contract cannot ask you to do anything illegal and someone cannot ask you to break civil contract unless what you're doing is illegal. If the border agent had the legal power to ask and not following instructions would be deemed illegal, then Mr NASA is fine. If the border agent did not have the legal power, then Mr NASA could sue them for coercing him into breaking a civil contract, assuming he can show damages. The simplest way would be for NASA to show 'damages' and to sue for the full market value of whatever secret information was on the phone or to which the phone had access.
It's not a civil contract. NASA employees take the same Oath of Office as the President (changing only "to the office which I am appointed"). There are no conditions under which "not following instructions" in this case could be deemed illegal.
But what do they find to watch ? I got bored with films etc two decades ago,because everything was a remake or a repeat. Why do folk watch the same bad film time after time ?
In 2016, "Swiss Army Man" was extremely original.
The passive glasses suck because of the half-height resolution.
Which is a complete non-issue on a 4K tv.
It has never been done properly.
Then you've never seen "Coraline."
The same is true for retina print (eye print) checks. It does take a better camera (20M pixel), and it may require a brief *infrared* flash (so you will *not* notice it), but it will allow one to copy the retina prints from everyone looking in the camera's direction, and they are most often good enough to confuse retina scanners into accepting a false eye as valid.
Biometry may be useful as a 2FA/3FA, but it really isn't "safe" by itself.
Uh, that would be iris scans, right? If someone is reading your retina, it's not from more than a couple of centimeters in front of your eye.
Incorrect... "enhancing" isn't anything like what you see in the movies.
Give me a hard copy right there.
