Since alcohol is often used as a sedative in old school child rearing, we should allow drip feeders to be sold commercially? I'm all for "freedom" and personal responsibility". There is a very clear distinction between allowing companies to profit off of ignorance at the expense of members of society (which must be enforced by regulation), and "freedom and personal responsibility".
I'm not sure I understand what you're getting at here, this seems completely disconnected from anything I/we were discussing. FYI we still use alcohol based products for teething and colic. Read the ingredients on Grape water next time you're at your local pharmacy, hint not the one that says "alcohol free"
In other words, it was the worst kind of lie.
Except it wasn't a lie and the actuation is liable unless you have proof, not that I'd press charges even if I did know who you were. So yeah, that must be award for you...
You see no issue with the ipad baby sitter which damages mental and physical growth in infants? Implying or claiming that the people pushing for a recall of the device because of its harmful impact are "bad" people?
Actually I do disagree with giving tablets to infants. I never said I did agree with it, I'm just much more rational about it and think it should be left up to the parents to do the parenting and they should be able to do it, baring sexual or physical abuse, without Joe public coming after them, physically or with child services. The last paragraph is anecdotal and is intended to demonstrate there are real crazies out there. Visit any animal shelter and you'll see the kind of things pets are put through by crazy people. In this case it was a neighbour instead of the owner.
I've read a lot of articles from journalist claiming we should do away with anonymous comment sections because they have to put their names on their articles, my response is normally, "I don't get paid for my comment and my career won't be advanced for anything I say. If anything something I said fifteen years ago could be used against me by someone hell bent on causing me pain and suffering because they have nothing better to do with their time.". I've read articles about people fired because some wacko group traced a picture of a high heal stepping on a cats tail back to someone. The comment sections filled with "Good they deserve to be fired.". No one considers, what if they got the wrong person?
"Off grid gal
The radiation from these things is unbelievable, parents should not even be holding their kids hands when they're on these things...I even have witnessed mothers breast feeding while they hold their smart phones centimeters from their baby's brains!!! We need to wake up out of our techno-haze stupour and get back out into nature, untethered!!"
No, they should be banned. Not available. This is a children's rights issue. We want healthy, well developed children."
Have you ever called a company (maybe a bank) and gotten that "Press 1 for
Sounds more distracting that just having it posted as a visual interface near where you're suppose to be looking anyway.
I mean heck, CBC posted a story about a baby chair that lets someone stick an iPad in front of an infant and people are flying off the hinge about how that should be considered reckless endangerment and child services should be involved for anyone using that product. Are those really the kind of people you want showing up at your house because they think they know what's better for your child than you do?
I have a friend in animal control who had to deal with a case where a neighbour went into someone else's backyard and killed their puppy by gouging it's eyes out with his bare hands because he thought tethering it to a stake in the yard was cruel.
Ok, I got a little carried away, but something I'd like to see is the use of smart glass to display interfaces on the users windshield in a sort of out of the way place, but where the driver doesn't have to take their eyes off the road. The top left or bottom left corner for countries where the driver sits on the left of the car as an example. Something like this, but it would have to be well designed and less cluttered. Maybe even not applied to the whole windshield just the part where a HUD is required so crap isn't popping up in front of you all the time.
