Verizon, Cable Lobby Oppose Spec-Bump For Broadband Definition

oh_my_080980980 Re:Consider Google Fiber (255 comments)

Because Google is available in every market and there's no barrier for Google entering these markets *eye roll*

You might want to read Google petition to the FCC to reclassify ISPs as Title II common carriers. This will allow Google access the utility poles to run fiber which in many cases they do not.

IRS Warns of Downtime Risk As Congress Makes Cuts

oh_my_080980980 Re:One has to wonder (253 comments)

LMOL Here's a thought, ask them. Seriously you really don't know how government works do you, let alone IT procurement. There's things called budgets and upgrade cycles. Most companies have a budget and a upgrade cycle where you replace equipment. Perhaps you haven't noticed the IRS budget has been slashed and continues to be cut. That's beyond odd since the IRS generates revenue for the Federal government and insures all Americans pay their taxes.

Regular Exercise Not Enough To Make Up For Sitting All Day

oh_my_080980980 Re:Correlation Causation? (348 comments)

It's not causation since no experiment was conducted to measure this. It's a weak correlation at best, since again, no correlation study was conducted to measure this outcome. It was a meta analysis not an experiment. That's the limitation of the study. It should be touted as proving anything. What it does point to is an interesting of study, something that should be looked at.

I think a reasonable conclusion to be drawn is that prolonged sitting is associated with a number of bad health outcomes and that prolonged sitting should be broken up with breaks during the day.

Regular Exercise Not Enough To Make Up For Sitting All Day

oh_my_080980980 Re:Sitting or over eating? (348 comments)

And that's the problem, it's a crap conclusion. No one is going to develop type 2 diabetes if they are healthy. It's the inactivity and amount of food you eat. So indirectly you could say prolonged sitting contributes to this outcome. The article severely overreaches.

Regular Exercise Not Enough To Make Up For Sitting All Day

oh_my_080980980 Re:Standing desks (348 comments)

Standing desks DO NOT solve this issue since you are still not moving and poses other health issues. You can't stand in one place all day. People need to sit as well.

Regular Exercise Not Enough To Make Up For Sitting All Day

Standing poses other health risks. There is no silver bullet. They key is to get people to move around on a regular basis at work.

oh_my_080980980 Re:Limited power to change working situation... (348 comments)

True going to the gym, according to the article, would not help. This has not been proven. So take that assertion with a grain of salt. However, taking mini breaks during the day would be of benefit. The key is not to sit for prolonged periods of time.

oh_my_080980980 Re:Limited power to change working situation... (348 comments)

Actually it doesn't. What the article is trying to say is that exercise will not counteract the effect of prolonged sitting. The problem with that assertion is, it's not proven. The article simple correlates health outcomes with people who exercise and have prolonged sitting, through meta analysis.. Nothing more. IT DOES NOT PROVE CAUSATION. Therein lies the problem. Even the correlation is somewhat weak since it was not a single experiment designed to observe those outcomes but rather base those conclusions on other research.

So there is no proof here. But it does highlight an area for future research.
