There's this thing called "Algorithmic Music Composition" - they analyzed the composition of famous music composers such as Bach and copied the "style" and transfer the algorithm into computer and let it churn out music.
What TFA suggests is to get a "dirty dog" which pass on some "gut microbes" onto the human babies which, according to TFA, may help the human babies to fight allergies.
This scenario has several implications:
1. How the "gut microbes" being passed from that "dirty dog" to the human infant ?
Specifically, dog shit.
Which means, the human infant somehow ingested some of the dog shit which contains the microbes that previously reside inside the dog's guts.
2. The transfer of a microbe from a species (dog) to another (human) may, or may not work.
It may even be very harmful.
If the microbes are of the "benign" kind, yes, it may benefit the human baby, as TFA has suggested.
But if the microbes are of the nasty kind, it may bring on transgenic diseases.
3. There may be a better and more hygienic way of boosting the human baby's immune responses --- Mother's milk.
Human babies who were fed the milk from their mothers are healthier and have better protection from many diseases. This is because, when the baby consume the milk from their mothers, they also consume beneficial microbes that were mixed in with the milk.
In conclusion - it is better to have your human babies to be fed mother's milk than to be fed dog shit.
Obama may be the POTUS, but he is a VERY LOUSY potus.
VERY VERY LOUSY !!
Obama forgot who his bosses are.
Obama thought he has become the KING of the Americans.
Obama is but one of the civil servants whose salaries are being paid by the American taxpayers.
Quit blaming the presidents when congress is fully invested in the law
Just because someone handed you a gun do you really have to use that gun ?
Just because the congress handed the president a law does that mean the president MUST use it ?
And furthermore - the Patriot Act itself is NOT a violation of the Constitution - it's the ACTION of the NSA, the one which INVADED THE PRIVACY OF THE AMERICAN CITIZENS - which has constituted BLATANT VIOLATION OF THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA !!!
The congress was full of shit, yes, but that asshole living in the white house is also full of shit !
In the balance of power/abuses, I'd still consider the NSA more appropriate than say... the Chinese/Russian equivalent
Just look at the modus operandi of the apologists
They are actually TRYING VERY HARD to compare an apple to an orange !
RUSSIA and CHINA are NOT democratic countries.
THEIR GOVERNMENTS are RUTHLESS and VERY AUTOCRATIC, and they have the power to PERSECUTE, and even EXECUTE their people WITHOUT REASON.
I am from China. I know what I am talking about !
On the other hand, the United States of America is supposed to be A DEMOCRATIC COUNTRY - where *LAWS* are obeyed, and even the government has to OBEY THE LAWS.
NSA is NOT an apparatus of the Russian nor an apparatus of the Chinese government.
NSA is a branch of the government of the United States of America.
Which means, NSA has the OBLIGATION to operate ACCORDING TO WHAT HAS BEEN CLEARLY STATED IN THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
Has NSA done that ?
NSA has VIOLATED the CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA !
Apologist, you are forewarned !
We will hunt you down, no matter where the fuck you are !
The character assassination of Snowden begins
No, it began when the Scotland Yard and the GCHQ tried to pin Snowden with the Pedophiles.
Then NSA returned the favor and attacked Julian Assange
This is the third round.
There will be a fourth, a fifth, a sixth, and their intention is very simple -
The want to fill the media media with LIES.
They want to fill the world with SO MUCH LIES that nobody can discern truth from lies.
I mean, the Fox network sucks at the government teats as much as anybody else.
I am surprised with the fact that CBS was chosen over Fox network.
I always thought that NSA would choose Fox to be their media anchor. I was wrong.
Other than lies, lies and more damn lies, what else can NSA come up with ?
No matter how slick or how polished their lies be, NSA's lies are still LIES.
NSA has betrayed America.
NSA has betrayed the Constitution.
NSA is a rogue organization within the government of the United States of America.
Plenty of investors are betting on Global Warming to bring them more money.
Derivatives that help companies hedge against abnormal weather and natural catastrophes are drawing increased interest from some big players. In January, KKR bought a 25 percent stake in Nephila Capital, an $8 billion Bermuda hedge fund that trades in weather derivatives.
Morgan Stanley, Goldman Sachs and other firms took stakes in wind farms and tidal-energy projects, and set up carbon-trading desks.
Other investors are working under the assumption that climate change is inevitable, they’re investing in businesses that will profit as the planet gets hotter.
Their strategies include buying water treatment companies, brokering deals for Australian farmland, and backing a startup that has engineered a mosquito to fight dengue, a disease that’s spreading as the mercury climbs.
The World Bank says the earth could warm by 4C by the end of the century. Drought is helping spur business at Water Asset Management. The New York hedge fund, which has about $400 million under management, buys water rights and makes private equity and stock market investments in water treatment companies. “Not enough people are thinking long term of [water] as an asset that is worthy of ownership,” says Chief Operating Officer Marc Robert. “Climate change for us is a driver.”
The gloomy prospect of hotter temperatures, scarce arable land, and rapidly rising populations will make inland cropland Down Under—far from rising seas yet close to Asia’s hungry customers—more valuable. That is the angle Land Commodities is taking. It advises rich individuals and sovereign wealth funds on purchases of Australian farmland.
NunaMinerals, a mining company in Greenland, is exploring in south Greenland, mainly for gold, “It has previously been covered by a glacier, but most of that glacier has disappeared, so suddenly we had access to a lot of ground that nobody had seen before,” says Ole Christiansen, CEO of NunaMinerals.
The United Nations estimates that investments in infrastructure and technology to mitigate the effects of climate change will total as much as $130 billion a year by 2030. Arcadis, a Dutch engineering firm that offers flood-protection services, is raking in truckloads of money, thanks to Superstorm Sandy. The company won contracts from New York’s Nassau County and New York City to help bring water treatment facilities back online. In the past it has worked with authorities in New Orleans to upgrade levees and in San Francisco to create a plan to deal with rising sea levels."

... if, say, the military or state department actually follows the NSA's suggestions, there's a decent chance that those suggestions are pretty close to as good as it gets
Are you saying that NSA hasn't yet created enough havoc, that you wish the State Department and the Military to join NSA in making even more violations to our Constitutions ??
If it can handle the "Improv" (as featured in Slashdot @ http://hardware.slashdot.org/story/13/11/25/2313224/dual-core-allwinner-a20-powered-eoma-68-engineering-card-available ) it will be wonderful !!
According to this page (which I do not know if the info is true or not)
it claims the following:
A. The Chang'e 3 lander has a powerful HD science cameras that can send at a rate of one image per second.
B. The Yutu rover will be sending high-definition images, including panoramas, back to Earth.
C. Ouyang Ziyuan, one of the chief scientists on the Chang'e-3 mission, said the in an interview: ( @ http://english.cntv.cn/program/newshour/20131130/102473.shtml )
"Number one: space observation from the moon. This is the dream of many astronomers because atmosphere, wind, snow and pollution don't obstruct visibility as they do on earth. The result is also better because of the longer periods of uninterrupted observation from the moon due to it orbiting the earth. One day of observation on the moon is equivalent to 14 days on earth.
Number two: we have an ultraviolet camera on the lander to monitor the earth. This camera is different from the one used by America's Apollo 16. Ours can see the formation of the earth's plasmasphere and its density change. It's better than a satellite, which can only record data section by section as it orbits around the earth. On the moon it can observe half of earth at a time without moving. This is something people have always wanted to do.
Number three: we will be the first to learn the structure and layers of the moon 100 meters below its surface with radars installed at the bottom of the rover. As the rover drives on the lunar surface, it will be as [if] it can cut and see what's 100 meters below. "
Okay, enough of the bickering.
There is a page claiming that CNSA (China National Space Administration) will share all the data it gathers from both the Chang'e 3 lander and the Yutu rover with scientists from all nations.
I do not know if the CNSA really will share all the data it gathers with the world. Time will tell.
But if it does (and I hope it will), that will be a plus for humanity.
And I sincerely hope that the ISS will be open for China's involvement as well.
It is utterly stupid to play politics in space.
The same goes for China. Industrially, they're getting to where the US was in the mid-1800s. Their space technology is in the 1950s, and early 1960s. Socially, they're pre-1750s in many ways. Militarily, they're in the 1910s, at best
I certainly hope that you are NOT an American.
If you are, please, I beseech you, please WAKE THE FUCK UP.
America is in a steep decline, and the rate of decline has quicken in the past 2 decades.
And America's decline is in stark contrast with the rapid growth of Brazil, India and China.
