No, that would be a perilepidopterist!

I am an epileptologist, and I would certainly love to see more effective anti-seizure drugs on the market. But although the newer anticonvulsants aren't necessarily better at stopping seizures than older ones (like the classic four: phenytoin, carbamazepine, phenobarbital, and valproic acid), they are better tolerated, have fewer severe adverse effects, have much more predictable serum concentrations, fewer drug-drug interactions, and require little to no routine bloodwork monitoring. For the 1% of the population suffering from epilepsy who have to take these drugs on a regular basis, this has been a significant change.
Yeah, sure, okay.
It was brave. It took guts. I wish he had just a little more bravery and a little more guts and as much oomph as it took when he held his only-a-little-powerful position. Because now he holds a no-powerful position, vis-a-vis the question at hand. People seeing the light only after they've led horrible organizations do not interest me all that much. Unless it's a prelude to leading a bigger, badder organization to undo the damage.
Add Hawley to the list of people for whom wisdom (or the audacity to voice it) came too late in their careers to make any difference.
I am a neurologist. During training, an MMSE was basically a required component of a history and physical exam of any patient with cognitive complaints. It has its limits, but within them it is very useful.
It's pretty hard to believe that a collection of cognitive tests, almost all of which can be and are used separately in a more customized examination of the patient's sensorium, can be so creative as to be copyrighted.
The idea that the Sweet 16 could infringe because it contains "orienation" and "memory recall" items similar to the MMSE is absurd; questions about orientation and immediate/delayed recall are standard with or without the MMSE.
This is absolutely infuriating from a clinical perspective.
*Nods*. Right. My comment ought not to be construed as a statement along the lines of, "Screw the authors! Gimme!" It's just a goddamn shame that this hasn't been pulled off.
All I want--far, far more than Netflix or Rhapsody--is to be able to give somebody money on a monthly basis to have access to nearly every book in every library in the world. Just somebody make this easy. I don't want to have to think, "Is reading a chapter of this obscure work on Russian formalism worth $0.50?" I just want to fucking click on a link, and read it.
Been an Ubuntu fan for an awfully long time, and evangelized it onto the hard drive of several relatives and work colleagues. I fucking hate Unity. I'm running Natty right now on "Ubuntu Classic" mode to avoid it; and despite all the wonderful things Canonical has brought to desktop Linux, the silliness of this decision has me thinking of moving my main PC to another distro; I've got Fedora 15, Arch, Gentoo, and a few others waiting in the pipeline.
Accessing the vaults of knowledge libraries stacked with text documents now include comparable libraries of video documents. As extra vendors begin delivering streaming content material, equivalent to videos-on-demand, the processing capabilities of web hosting options and different processors will proceed to require more highly effective media processor resources.
Subsequent technology media processing harnesses the facility of hardware processing and software program management integrated into a single solution. On processor graphic processing supplies the quickest translation and presentation platform as a high-density media gateway for all media formats. The perfect in school media processors attain performance ranges like the next:
500 Mhz video subsystem
Quad MAC DSP engine
four Channel DMA controller
Enhanced instruction set for video
250 Hertz AMR RISC processor
3 Mb shared memory
33 Mhz PCI (v2.3)
The software aspect of the media course of permits developers to tightly combine purposes to take full benefit of onboard components. An eclipse-based mostly built-in growth environment permits C ++ or assembler growth tools to design highly effective applications.
Profiting from other hardware and software program processing alternatives at decrease levels of the expertise stack embrace the communication processor and network processor.
Instead of fundamental router and switch applied sciences, these stage 2 processing engines allow for segmentation and reassembly of network traffic. Designers and developers can create functions that mix each enterprise requirements for a number of companies and a number of applications.
A wealthy set of development instruments permits full management of the communication and community features of these devices. Upgrades of those processing units turn out to be easier in circumstances where processing speeds enhance supplanting the necessity to replace the entire system, however configurations might be executed so as to add the brand new features.
Because the network and communication processing strikes out of the single operate duties with the introduction of a number of cores and extra power, virtualization of these processors grows out into a fabric. Switching and routing in a fabric of specialised media and communications processors turns into potential to support growth. Manufacturers can leverage such know-how developments to create level-virtualizations for their products, permitting prospects to increase to fulfill progress and demand.
Customized developed processors and software program tools can be found to tailor these parts for present and emerging products that will vastly improve performance, create safe and improved integration and enable media experiences that have been as soon as thought impossible.

One such example detailed the efforts of several Catholic monastaries to convince AT&T to adopt net neutrality policies and practices.
"Net neutrality can greatly affect underserved communities that have limited access to the Internet. We need to alleviate those social inequalities," [the petition's contact person Jonas Kron] said, noting that the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops has published an open letter supporting Net neutrality.
Unfortunately for the nuns and Mike D, the SEC granted a no-action letter on the basis that net neutrality is not "a significant policy issue." Kron called the decision "shocking" and said the group "vigorously disagrees."

So really they're going to allow the possibility of publishers to allow lending.
Because *I* want to have a say in how the next technological regime for literature will be structured, I download and copy books.
