Faith without evidence is not always toxic. It depends on what that faith is in. Point to me a devout Buddhist who is somehow toxic. or one who has ever existed.

I like my government to help make sure things are safe for eating and drinking.
And I especially like when the government responds to criticisms by saying they didn't understand this issue when they made their rules and will take comments from the industry and revise their proposed rules as they have done in this case.
I know it is not as fun for the anti-government types, but even the linked to article mentions it at the very bottom of the story:
The FDA will open up the rule to comments again this summer and then revise the proposal, which is due to be finalized by August, 2015.
So this is already a non issue, they have agreed to revise the rules so there are not the dire consequences the article was using to stir everyone up.
I can understand this happening. It would make sense that the NSA would have someone or multiple people review every patch and check-in for a package as important as OpenSSH, just looking for exploitable mistakes.
I would not be surprised if they review a great deal of FOSS software they deem important to national security.

This happens all the time, some quack alt "medicine" is recalled because it actually contains a known effective drug. Most often it is "herbal" dick pills that contain the active ingredient in traditional ED medications.
Getting on the "Recalls, Market Withdrawals and Safety Alerts for U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA)" email list can be very entertaining:
I stopped using them because when there is a DNS lookup failure they reply with a web page that says:
"The site xxxxx is not responding"
Instead of correctly saying it can't be found in the DNS system.
Repeated emails and bug reports fell on deaf ears there.
OpenDNS has the terrible policy of turning back the error:
"This website is not responding"
When in fact it was a DNS lookup failure.
I have written them repeatedly and filed a bug report, but they seem to think it is an acceptable response.
Your comment is exactly right on on the money.
I have driven a number of cars with digital controls for the radio, tuning, volume and climate systems, temp, fan, distribution and they were terrible.
You must take your eyes off the road to deal with them, whereas, if you have knobs, buttons and sliders your hands can take care of it all.
I will never buy a car will all digital controls, that is one place touch screens do not belong.
Of course people want to lay off 15% of the workforce. That is very typical in leveraged buyout processes and part of the plan from square one.
You are take out big loans to buy the company, knowing you are going to immediately gut it maximize profits in the short term so you can pay off the loans. Then you continue to milk what remains as profit, letting the business decline knowing you can sell off chunks to get the last drop of value out of the company, and then at the very end, when you have loaded it up with debt again, you declare it bankrupt and walk away.
The placebo effect does affect animals. At least some of the placebo effect can be due to the attention, interaction and care the patient receives in the process of getting the fake/non effective medication or treatment and the same thing can impact animals if they get more attention/affection during the "treatment".
Also, since the placebo effect only works on subjective symptoms like self reported pain or ease of movement, if a person is doing the evaluating for the animal, they can make the same biased evaluations of the subjective symptoms, just about the animal instead of themselves.
No surprise to me.
It is a terrible, mind numbingly boring job that is essentially a career killer in the Air Force. Not to mention the fact that the likelihood of them actually having to do what they train for is very low and if they do have to do what they trained for it basically means they are helping end life on this planet as we know it.
I completely understand why they would not be motivated to excel on the exams and/or might smoke a little grass.
I wonder what their Russian counterparts' moral is like.
Could very well be router or firewall logs that saw the packets as they passed out of wherever the compromised server was.
As if they are not going to just find some other way to structure their compensation packages to make it appear to be under the cap.
I am sure there are at least a dozen ways they will be able to make as much as they possibly can and never have it run in to any restrictions like the proposed law in Switzerland. If worse comes to worse they can probably use off shore companies to have the executives get paid in a country that doesn't have these sorts of restrictions.
It is nice to put the executives on notice that it would be good for everyone if pay rates were not so disparate, but really the law will make zero difference.
