The article doesn't actually seem to say much of anything (insights into stupid European wheelbarrow design notwithstanding). And there's this:

I looked at one of the actual laws that make up Obamacare ... After a few pages I ran into this definition of patient decision aid:

(1) PATIENT DECISION AID—The term patient decision aid' means an educational tool that helps patients, caregivers, or authorized representatives understand and communicate their beliefs and preferences related to their treatment options, and to decide with their health care provider what treatments are best for them based on their treatment options, scientific evidence, circumstances, beliefs, and preferences. ...

Unless Congress thinks of teachers as "educational tools," I think we can take it as written here that they expect this to be some kind of computer program. ... These paragraphs legislate that Obamacare will fund research in heavy-duty state-of-the-art artificial intelligence—I somehow doubt that is what Congress intended it to say. I posit that Congress worried about having enough doctors and nurses for this new health care, so they wanted to use computers to cut down the talking and explaining. In other words, they want to save manpower—by replacing the front man on the handbarrow with a wheel.

It looks to me like his interpretation of the law is extremely ridiculous. As I read it, it applies just as well to a simple brochure, ie. "Your Treatment Options for Prostate Cancer..." that is required to be understandable to the patient or caregiver (in their native language and not overly technical) so they can make an educated choice about their own treatment.

The author of the article is the one attaching the unnecessarily complicated wheel to this particular example.

I downloaded a few different versions - surprisingly, the difference in size between the 30fps and the 60fps versions is very small. I'm not sure if they sandbagged the quality of the 60fps version to match file sizes, or there is just not that much bandwidth required for additional B frames. Or did something go wrong in the rendering at 60fps? Curious.

Yeah, because all the money we have been pouring into school systems the past 30 years made such a difference until now. Our per capita spending per student is abysmal for our ROI. But we keep voting in the people on the school boards who hire the people who make and execute the budgets for the schools, so there is no one to blame but the person in the mirror. I love the cycles where a new administrator in a district will institute a construction program within their first two years so that people will know they are 'serious' about education. The declining average testing scores may not give community pride, but the [INSERT BUILDING OR OTHER EDIFICE NAME HERE] sure is magnificent/breathtaking/bold/needed/awesome. School property is massively underutilized. Too bad people wouldn't be willing to have school in shifts.

A blue tooth ring either on your finger or a key chain or something- perhaps even in the pocket your money or wallet is in. Place an activator in a pocket and a button on the ring. When they are within a certain range, pressing the button in a certain sequence could activate the call or panic program discretely.

Perhaps it could be even less complicated and you press the button only without an activation device but in a sequence not easily replicated by normal situations. Maybe by tapping out S.O.S in Morse Code or something.

It could even be off when it is not being used as long as the phone can automatically detect it when turned on and use it as intended. This way, a battery can last 5 years or so while not being used before needing replaced or charged. Just turn it on every once in a while to ensure it still connects properly- perhaps using a separate sequence to keep it to a simulation instead of a real panic.

Seconded...

We've worked on minimal hardware routers and iptables can't keep up with pF on the same hardware.
pF also allows more flexibility, and can do funkier layer 2 than iptables.
The ALiX boards in the Yawarras (http://www.yawarra.com.au/) are small, flexible, and FreeBSD supported.
We don't use them so much anymore since we run more VM host-based firewalls, and we've moved on from hosting various physical machines requiring firewalling between them (since a possibly compromised machine's firewall can't be trusted...)

I don't see what the point of misdirect the discussion on this topic would be, unless a rationale examination of IT project failure is something some group would prefer to be avoided. Accenture maybe?

Besides, both parties have embraced the name Obamacare - the republicans started it thinking it was pejorative and then the democrats must have run a few test groups on the name and decided to try and "take it back" before the last election. At this point, I don't think the name is controversial at all. It certainly rolls off the tongue much better than any of the official names.

That is the primary reason you do not see more urbanization in SV - the people who already own there do not want their property values to go down.

No, it's because they would have to pay most of the cost (increased traffic, more crime, etc.) while the additional sales and property tax revenue has to be shared with the rest of the city. It's the classic unscrupulous diner's dilemma.

It can literally take 45 minutes to an hour to drive 5 miles across town...

That's easy to fix by eliminating minimum parking requirements to stop encouraging people to drive and contribute to traffic, and by lifting the price ceiling on freeway travel.

Kemp is being unfair. I understand what this section is about, and he doesn't. A patient decision aid could just be a well-written article or web page. The UK NHS has patient information pages that would satisfy these requirements. There's no requirement for artificial intelligence.

"(1) PATIENT DECISION AID—The term patient decision aid' means an educational tool that helps patients, caregivers, or authorized representatives understand and communicate their beliefs and preferences related to their treatment options, and to decide with their health care provider what treatments are best for them based on their treatment options, scientific evidence, circumstances, beliefs, and preferences."
"(2) REQUIREMENTS FOR PATIENT DECISION AIDS—Patient decision aids developed and produced pursuant to a grant or contract under paragraph (1)—
"(A) shall be designed to engage patients, caregivers, and authorized representatives in informed decision making with health care providers;
"(B) shall present up-to-date clinical evidence about the risks and benefits of treatment options in a form and manner that is age-appropriate and can be adapted for patients, caregivers, and authorized representatives from a variety of cultural and educational backgrounds to reflect the varying needs of consumers and diverse levels of health literacy;
"(C) shall, where appropriate, explain why there is a lack of evidence to support one treatment option over another; and

This isn't the only place we've seen this. The Pentagon and FEMA have been up to their necks in it for years. The process of getting government contracts is so bizarre and complicated that companies have evolved with "getting government contracts" as their only business model. So the companies that actually get the contracts are the companies that are good at getting government contracts (because they focus so much of their resources on the process), NOT companies that are good at delivering what the contracts specify. This is a natural by-product of bureaucracy.

Do yourself a favor and get yourself a PC white box and start routing with a LINUX source code stack.

At least then you can pick the hardware you want to trust and you can have a choice as to how far you want your security to go into the software stack audit.

But all of this is pointless.

As I pointed out before, it is IMPOSSIBLE to build a secure system anywhere NATO or its allies are operating.

Any claim of data protection by any company in this domain is FALSE.

We now know if you refuse to turn over any encryption information or fail to give your customers or your private data to the NSA you will get butt f*cked in prison.

So it is pointless to even consider TRYING to build a secure system, it cannot be done as a goal or even as a business benefit towards your customers.

My personal opinion as I have watched my friends and other companies literally go to jail or go under due to NSA activities is this: It has nothing to do with security, it has everything to do with funding NSA mischief.

That means industrial and financial espionage operations to insure information is known ahead of the game in the financial markets.

So the entire issue is that we are dealing with just common criminals and thungs.

The NSA is not even particularly smart, but they ar elike a large gang of wolves cornering the beast we call freedom and liberty and they are going to take it down.
