Insects Rapidly Becoming Resistant To GM Corn
This argument implies that theses women have access to effective and culturally acceptable methods of birth control that they can use reliably and choose not to use it. I don't know that this is usually the case.
Electronic Health Records Now In All US Military Hospitals
Right now a lot of medical transcription work is sent overseas to take advantage of low cost out sourcing. A few years ago a woman in Pakistan threatened to publish medical records from UCSF Medical Center on the internet unless she was paid a bit more.
While it's always possible that external intruders could get by the network security, the EHR's security, and figure out how to access and make sense of the proprietary data in the systems, the biggest threat is from people on the inside.
IAAHITC - I Am A Healthcare IT Consultant
All Languages Linked To Common Source
You'd think that some of the phrases early African people were saying all of the time would still be kicking around and we'd be using them. Why don't more peoples have a common way of saying:
- Look, a lion! Run.
- Fuck, it's hot around here!
- Damn, look at that ass!
- Gross, why do elephants have to shit so big?
Vatican Warns That Internet Promotes Satanism
It isn't doing it very well
Microsoft On List of Most Ethical Companies
I'm going to go ahead and say that if you've ever had to change the name of your company because of a huge ethical scandal then you shouldn't get to be on a list of ethical companies for a little more than 10 years. I'm looking at you Accenture (aka Anderson Consulting).
Device Addresses Healthcare Language Barrier
Idiocracy predicted this.
Saudi Students In US Seek Segregation By Gender On Facebook
Their religion is also a little hard on poking and getting Facebook to implement a "throw rock" feature turned out to be more difficult than anticipated.
Next Step For US Body Scanners Could Be Trains, Metro Systems
At this point I'm just glad that militant Islam probably has some pretty strict rules about sticking things up their butt. If one of those guys put a stick of dynamite up their ass and blew up a plane with it then the new air travel rules will largely restrict willing passengers to porn stars.
Critics Call For Probe Into Google Government Ties
This is just one of the first few calls for investigations by the likes of Darrell Issa who recently asked that the House have "7 hearings a week times 40 weeks" investigating the executive branch. It's just like Clinton/Whitewater thing but with even less merit.
MySpace Revamps Site To Recapture the Magic
Most people have terrible taste and myspace gave them a lot more of an opportunity to unleash that onto the internet. They became the social networking version of Geocities and that ruined their branding.
Facebook locks down the look and feel of their website quite a lot and for branding purposes that's a good thing.
Genetically Altering Trees To Sequester More Carbon
What I've always wished for is that cars and boats and other fossil fuel burning vehicles that would concentrate their exhaust into solid pellets. What I have in my mind is a picture of bulldozers crapping charcoal briquettes all over a work site.
Mega-Volcanoes Might Be Detectable On Exoplanets
the evil galactic emperor Xenu could be dropping nuclear weapons into normal exoplanet volcanoes in an attempt to destroy the souls of brain-washed alien dissidents thereby creating exo-Thetans that will torment the future residents of said exoplanet.
Teach the controversy!
King's Dark Tower Series To Be Adapted For Film, TV
Skip the last episode.
Duke Nukem Forever Back In Development
I say they do a reboot and start off with Duke Begins and then follow up with a bad ass sequel called The Duke Knight.
Could Crowdsourcing Help the SEC Detect Fraud?
I agree that the crowd idea won't work until there is the political will to actually enforce these rules. Even in the best of times you have too many regulators looking for a way into the industry they're regulating (like the oil rig inspectors at the MMS) but when you combine that with leadership that doesn't believe in government regulation then things are so much worse.
When the Madoff matter started to look fishy message from the leadership in Washington was that lax enforcement was the way to achieve the deregulation they were looking for and that makes perfect sense from a political point of view. You don't get money for reelection from people you hound with regulators and people who don't believe in government, or at least believes that government regulation generally does more harm than good, shouldn't be expected to run one well.
Abandon Earth Or Die, Warns Hawking
"Comparatively large" in this case meaning just shy of the rest of the world's defense budgets combined. Last year it was also bigger than Social Security or Medicare & Medicaid. link
Churchill Accused of Sealing UFO Files, Fearing Public Panic
and still the doctor never gets any credit.
My Automobile Gets __ MPG
Americans don't know what Le Mans is. It has "Le" which means French in American and "Mans" which is more than 1 man. Without actually knowing what it is many Americans would suspect that it was a gay thing and that would set diesel adoption back several years.
My Automobile Gets __ MPG
If you asked most Americans to describe a diesel car you'll hear that they are: noisy, stinky, expensive to buy and repair, perform poorly in cold weather, and are slow. I think this comes from experience with crappy diesel cars from the gas crisis in the late 70's and commercial transportation like buses, 18 wheelers, trains, etc.
As a group, we don't know about the much cleaner diesel we use today or modern diesel engines so it's going to take some time to make diesel trendy in the US.
To Ballmer, Grabbing iPad's Market Is 'Job One Urgency'
In theory a Microsoft tablet could run most windows apps but in practice most of those don't work well on a tablet as every one of their previous tablet projects have shown so a tablet running strait Windows 7 is a bad idea. Maybe their Windows 7 Mobile will work better but what apps are they going to have for it? As for their other effort to build something that works well for a mobile platform, does anyone want a Zune app? You can pick from 24 and several of those are ad supported games no one cares about.
It's really something to see how times have changed. 10 years ago the Mac user's lament was that the software options for their computers were too limited and now Microsoft is trying to launch hardware or OSs for new hardware into markets where Apple and Google have the mindshare nearly cornered between iTunes and the Android Marketplace.
This is why Microsoft is becoming the stuff you use at work and Apple is slowly becoming the stuff you use everywhere else.
