You would be surprised how easy it is to take out a modern American armada.
Major powers fighting proxy wars in third world countries worked out really well for Vietnam, Korea, Cuba, and Afghanistan.
1) Teachers who can't teach (even if they know their subject backwards and forwards) should be fired.
2) It should be possible for anyone with the proper qualifications to teach whether they have a "teaching certificate" or not.
Don't these two things sort of contradict eachother? Knowing something doesn't immediately make you capable of teaching it, and I imagine there are quite a few people out there who know quite a lot of things that they would not be able to teach if they were asked to. The reason people get teaching certificates (or other such things) is to show that they can, in fact, teach things they know to other people. I know a lot about computers, but I'll be damned if I can teach my family how to do anything other than check their email with one. It's quite a bit harder than you might expect, even with people who are just as intelligent as you. Teaching children, who don't have fully developed concepts of logic and reasoning, must be even more difficult.
I was looking for an answer to this.. and came up with an interesting article (from last year) about scientists basically doing exactly that.
Please god no duplicates. I work with these things, it's already enough of a pain in the ass with -illegal- duplicates.
The research suggests that the genetic predisposition causes the immune system to act different in response to the virus. If the research is correct, then yes you need both the genetic factor and the virus to get type-1 diabetes. Of course, that completely discounts any other possible methods of 'catching' the disease. Since it is an autoimmune disorder, there are likely multiple factors involved. If this pans out and cures the most common of those factors, it may still not eliminate the disease.
Type 1 diabetes comes with a lifetime requirement of insulin, syringes (or needles, for those nifty pens by novo nordisk), blood-sugar testers and their required test strips, and a small army of professional endocrinologists whose sole purpose is to tell people how to control their blood-sugar levels with as little insulin as possible to reduce risk of complications.
Type 2 diabetes comes with the occasional need for medications, a few doctor visits, and lifestyle changes.
I think you're confused.
Europe on that high horse, huh? When they put a release date on this, denmark your calendars.
Because if everything is equally cool, people will do the cool stuff that is easy instead of the cool stuff that is hard.
Instead, try to realize the truth. You will see it is not the space around the spoon that bends, it is only yourself.

I'm thinking the 'authorizer' is the doctor's office or hospital that prescribed the medication, and the pharmacy calls them to ensure they are getting the correct prescription. The insurance company itself would be incapable of doing that in the current setup. Doctors could send RX information to the insurance company first, then pharmacies could call the insurance company, which would work well enough until you realize that the insurance company doesn't know if the prescription the doctor sent in is actually the thing they need - the primary purpose of pharmacists and the authorization process in general.
My understanding, for the case of Stalin at least, is that religions were persecuted under his regime because they represented a threat to his ability to control the people. Which isn't really much different from any other tyrant persecuting any other group, to be honest.
So the only true and proper argument should be, "You first."
Isn't that a 'god of the gaps' fallacy? And doesn't that sort of make the idea of proving the book of Genesis false impossible? Nevermind that proving a negative, as a general rule, is impossible....
