Comment Re: What does Science have to say about this? (Score 1) 586

The citations.

Just provide the citations please. "Just Google it" is not helpful as there is a tonne of material out there presenting different view points and methods, some badly flawed.

If you want to mention research here, you need to back it up with EVIDENCE. Otherwise you're better off just stepping outside and playing with squirrels.

Comment Re:Which diversity gap? (Score 1) 173

Well, that's what I think it should be too. Too often, however, I see misanthropes reviewing companies and, despite the place being an equal-opportunity employer, criticising a less than 50:50 gender balance, skewed age balance, or lack of ethnic diversity.

The problem is that companies listen to these people.

Comment MRI, PET, CAT, etc (Score 1) 311

I chose MRI, PET, CAT, etc, because I'd like to see some kind of scanning technology readily accessible, and by readily accessible I mean built into every house.

For example imagine every shower cubicle doing a morning scan of your body, comparing with the prior days scans for potential artery blockages, tumors, melanomas, etc, and alert you that you need medical attention before it becomes acute. The savings in catching those sorts of things early would be massive.

And of course such things should never, ever, be connected to the Internet - far too much scope for abuse.

You scratch my tape, and I'll scratch yours.
