That is what will happen to San Francisco... not Tokyo. San Francisco.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
You pay for the data plan I assume in a T-mobile plan.
All they are doing is allowing more data for streaming for a website like pandora which might soak up a lot of peoples bandwidth.
They are not gatekeeping the rest of the internet and extorting money from web businesses.
T-mobile is simply offering more service in the form of an extension of bandwidth.
I think I need to wrap myself in the flag.
Widespread use of whatever drug will select for the population that is resistant.
Happens throughout the biosphere.
I didn't think the Alfeck Daredevil was "terrible".
It was entertaining like a ride all the way to the end, but then again I tend to like most superhero stuff, so I must not be very discerning.
Fun story to read.
This posting made me think of it.
This would be catastrophic in many cases. I think the lawsuits would pile up quickly when the number of head on collisions rises due to the car speed being capped and not able to gain enough speed to get around someone.
All it would take is a few vanloads of soccer moms getting nailed for the the public outcry to be substantial.
It seems like texting is a far bigger problem with driving than simply going a few miles over the speed limit.
And sometimes to extract oneself from a dangerous situation one needs to be able to speed the car up a bit before getting back down to the speed limit.
Funny I got aTroll Moderation for this. Doesn't take much be considered a Troll Apparently. The standards have slackened!
So there are definitional issue really. What homeopathy has become is not the same as what it was originally about.
Homeopathy is "also quite dangerous" is painting with rather a broad stroke it seems to me.
Like everything it depends.
If one is saying
That indeed is unwise and will result in early death.
If one is saying I will give my kid some Arnica ointment for swelling vs say using some anti-inflammatory like ibuprophen to ease the swelling then I couldn't agree less.
As for the Article...
"The reviewers sum up their report by saying that homeopathy should not be used to treat any health conditions that are chronic or that have the potential to become serious."
This also has a rather broad stroke approach. There are many who suffer from chronic things for which there are not really any great treatments or for which the treatments themselves have many side effects and long term problems. I see no problem with people seeking out alternate therapies which ultimately may not help, but do not have other life impactful consequences.
I think we can agree that for things with effective treatments it is folly attempt to substitute things which don't work for things that do work. For the bulk of medical conditions, this means standard evidence based therapy and medications.
Calling someone "hater" can actually be an apt description of someone with no argument, but pure bile in their discourse.
Quinine additionally has been an effective treatment for Malaria when not much else helped at all.
Good thing it wasn't something that people think is also harmless... Tylenol.
We had a girl die from that while I was on rotation in the transplant wing.
Cry for help... bottle of tylenol.
Horrific death waiting for a liver transplant that didn't come.
