There is a secondary market. Most large hospitals have genetic counselors who are trained and qualified to interpret and present the results of genetic testing.
My raspberry pi or my cellphone both have easily enough CPU to run a basic web interface and opeate a couple of switches, yet neither draws anything like 40 watts.
Like we got in Myriad Genetics?
And then they vote according to whichever way their ideological predisposition leads them.
Because everyone expected cases like Obamacare, or Myriad Genetics to come out the way they did given five of the nine current justices are Republican appointees?
Many of the justices do have ideological predispositions as to matters of law, but that simply places a demand on those arguing before the court to frame their argument to the audience. For example, arguing a statutory basis for your case in front of a textualist like Scalia.
A couple of years ago, Google restored lost gmail from tape. I'd expect that even with deduplication they must use a phenomonal amount of tape.
I understand there is this thing called the telephone. They could use that.
There's also this thing called the internet. Perhaps you've heard of these Google Hangout things. I'm pretty sure they've got enough talented people to set up a securely encrypted hangout for use in a counseling session.
No, the article proves that having a car that reeks of marijuana and has a secret compartment is enough to get you arrested.
Strangely, they forgot to copy that line from the article that spawned the story.
Why on earth do you think that a hidden compartment in a car owned by a small business owner who has bank transaction records showing he deposits his business takings in cash to the bank each day/week would run afoul of a law that reads:
"No person shall knowingly operate, possess, or use a vehicle with a hidden compartment with knowledge that the hidden compartment is used or intended to be used to facilitate the unlawful concealment or transportation of a controlled substance."
"Controlled substance" means a drug, compound, mixture, preparation, or substance included in schedule I, II, III, IV, or V. "
I think you misread or ignored my comment. It's not about denying people the test, it's about making sure they understand it.
I think you'll find most doctors if needing something like a BRCA test for themselves would still consult a genetic counselor first. Why?
Because there are numerous different tests that might be appropriate - do you just need tested for one possible hereditary cancer, or are there others you should be tested for too based upon your family history.
There may be a better person to test than yourself.
The result of the test may be misleading to a non-specialist, even someone who is trained and has a medical degree. For example a negative result might mean another condition is more likely rather than being an all-clear.
Wikipedia is great, but it's not an adequate substitute for proper healthcare.
And it's not like 23andme couldn't provide appropriate counseling before testing and have results handed out by a specialist with a genetic counseling degree.
Which is why you want test results on things like this handed over by an expert, not an email.
There are some areas where government regulation is appropriate. This is one of them.
Which is just the same as carrying a BRCA mutation that increases your likelihood of breast cancer. Yet almost every medical authority would agree you should only get BRCA testing done alongside counseling from an appropriately trained genetic counselor.
Are members of the public equipped to interpret a 55% or greater chance of their child developing Alzheimer's Disease?
It's not about withholding the test. It's about making sure the test results are accurate, that the recipient understands what the test may uncover, and that they are equipped to rationally process the result.
Say you're happy to check your records and if you find you owe them you'll mail a check. Then ask for an address to send it to.
Once you have an address, send a certified letter asking that they stop contacting you (assuming you never want to hear from them again). Then, if they keep contacting you go see a lawyer.
This assumes you really don't owe anything. I'm not a lawyer - if you need legal advice you should hire one.
...knowing where the fuck you're going, before you head out?
I'm guessing you either don't cycle much or don't ever travel and cycle some place new?
Some of us happily ride 50, 60, 70
Other times, someone else will have plotted a ride using bike friendly roads you are unfamiliar with. Thirty turns wouldn't be unusual. That's a lot to remember, even if you have a pretty good idea of where you are.
Surely this is much better than a cyclist constantly checking their odometer so they don't miss the next turn.

Funny, here's what the edit page says: Work submitted to Wikipedia can be edited, used, and redistributed—by anyone—subject to certain terms and conditions.
Looks to me like if I want to edit, I am subject to the terms and conditions.
