    1. In systems engineering and requirements engineering, a non-functional requirement (NFR) is a requirement that specifies criteria that can be used to judge the operation of a system, rather than specific behaviors. They are contrasted with functional requirements that define specific behavior or functions

      This is a strange term because one might read "non-functional" and interpret in the sense of the word that means "does not function", when instead the intended sense is "not related to function". Seems like a somewhat unfortunate name for this concept. A less ambiguous term could have been picked instead, but I don't know what that would be.

    1. Peer must maintain a staffed 24x7 operational center, with knowledge or direct escalation privileges to knowledgable personal to resolve any issues efficiently
    1. Implementing prior blocking and asynchronous re-activation Our prior blocking option prevents the installation of non-exempt cookies before user consent is obtained (as required by EU law) and asynchronously activates (without reloading the page) the scripts after the user consents.To use, you must first enable this feature: simply select the “Prior blocking and asynchronous re-activation” checkbox above before copy and pasting the code snippet into the HEAD as mentioned in the preceding paragraph.

    1. Allows you to autodetect and limit prior-blocking and cookie consent requests only to users from the EU – where this is a legal requirement – while running cookies scripts normally in regions where you are still legally allowed to do so.
    2. Enables the blocking of scripts and their reactivation only after having collected user consent. If false, the blocked scripts are always reactivated regardless of whether or not consent has been provided (useful for testing purposes, or when you’re working on your project locally and don’t want pageviews to be counted). We strongly advise against setting "priorConsent":false if you need to comply with EU legislation. Please note that if the prior blocking setting has been disabled server side (via the checkbox on the flow page), this parameter will be ineffective whether it’s set to true or false.

    1. If other third-party tools guarantee not to use cookies, perhaps by providing specific configuration options, they too can be considered to be exempt from prior blocking. This is the case namely with YouTube, which provides a specific feature to prevent the user from being tracked through cookies.
    2. This depends on the legal jurisdiction applicable to your site. In Europe, you’re legally required to block cookie scripts until user consent is obtained. All cookies must be blocked except for those that are exempt.

    1. Open Educational Resources (OER) Policy

      It`s good to have the name here, but it would be even better to have the Institution here, so that user can see faster, where this policy comes from.

    1. as by law required

      This phrase seems very redundant and i am very curious as to why it was included. I am thinking that there was some sort of legal reason, but it still takes away from the meaning of the work. Ideally, they should have been meeting because they wanted to make this University and it was their own personal reasons, not because it was required of them. However, because of these words it almost seems that the authors had no desire to be at the Rockfish gap and were forced to be there in a way. Something that is very prized today, specifically in education, is one's passion for their work. If you are passionate for what you are doing, then you can better serve those who you work for. Again, I do not know the reasoning behind including this, but if it were left out then the report would be much stronger. It would represent what these men deem useful and necessary for society, not just something the law requires them to do.

    1. RAJ: Paul, you are who you are, what you are, and where you are at this very moment. You cannot do more than you can do. Do not waste your time in self-criticism or self-doubt. As you shall see, it is totally unnecessary. There has been no requirement for you to be something that you are not able to be. What you have needed to learn in order to fulfill your place has been accomplished. You have done well.

      You cannot do more than you can do. Do not waste your time in self-criticism. There has been no requirement for yo to be something that you are not.

      Here is another of Paul's mistaken beliefs - that he has failed to meet requirements. We all do this.

    1. Paul, we do not have to do anything in order to deserve to be in immediate and total contact with the infinitude of our Being. The main, essential step to making such contact is to realize that everything we see “out there”—universally—is, indeed, our Being. What separates us from our Good is the belief that our Good is not our Self—nothing more!

      I need do nothing - There are no requirements that need to be met before I can be in contact with the entirety of my Being.

      The essential step is the realization that everything we see "out there" is our Being.
