If a brain scan is "reliable", rest assured it will be mandatory, and amendments will be ignored to make this happen.
Others have said it too, but this guy isn't "bald", he has an autoimmune system that attacks his hair follicles.
Definition of "bald": "having a scalp wholly or partly lacking hair."
This guy lacked: eyebrows, eyelashes, facial hair, body hair, pubic hair, and all head hair.
The treatment fixed it all, because it was autoimmune in nature.
This is huge for the sufferers of this disease- who are very rare, and not linked to sex.
It's worthless to the many bald men who find sometime after puberty that their head hair just retracts. Those men are actually bald. This guy was something else entirely.
Mod this up. While this is a great discovery, the autoimmune form of this is super rare compared to any of the male pattern baldness things.
It won't help most men at all. But, still, good news.
For the Windows gaming PC, I went with the 250 for an operating system. Mostly because at least it's an operating system, not some crazy mock up like Windows 8. Windows 8 just made me think that Microsoft is fucking insane- the few things written by the GUI designers about how it's for these users and not for these users and they have this model of user types and they want to get their casuals off the desktop or whatfuckingever- just go to hell, guys. Everyone who wants to innovate can be divided cleanly into two camps: people who jump through legal and technical hoops to prevent you from opting out of their bullshit, and those that don't. The folks in the second group normally have something to sell you. The folks in the first group- and that includes Microsoft on all counts and fucking GNOME on some- are arrogant pricks not worth the time of day.
Quite honestly, the moment I can play games natively under Linux, I'll be full Linux again. And no, WINE and derivatives are not adequate for all of gaming, and very much not the section I use.
Agh, my kingdom for a mod point. This is a very very good point that gets almost no play.
Probably haven't killed any heroic raid bosses eh? The grouping part is still there, but it's not as present at the lower levels, or for the simpler things. But if you want to group, there's three tiers that make that mandatory and reward accordingly.
Currently the pve game is: Levelling and dungeons -> dungeons, scenarios at 90 -> LFR -> Flex -> Normal -> Heroic.
Everything from Flex up takes a premade group to succeed with. Heroics take a lot more effort and dedication, etc.
As you would expect, some people really like leveling, and that is mostly what they do. Others view it as a regrettable grind that comes with the genre, a cockblock before they can get to the part they like.
On live, level 90 is the cap. The for-sale 90s are intended to be brought to the new expansion, which goes up to level 100. Since all the content is at level cap, this move makes some sense. The summary should at least mention that level 100 will be the cap when these things are for sale. Pretending that "the game is the experience of leveling, after which you have won" can be forgiven, but leaving out the actual level cap? Shenanigans.
I love all these studies that constantly come out showing that dogs are, well, loving, loyal, and built to hang around humans. Of COURSE they are. Dogs are domesticated, and like, are the best thing ever.
I would like to see more studies about how flexible these relatively large changes are, and how fast they can occur. We all know about the Russion project to make "dogs out of foxes" by domesticating foxes by choosing them based on friendliness:
Do these little foxes have a section where they are mirroring the dogs? In other words, is this morphological change something that happens when an animal is domesticated into a pet, or are dogs just special because awwwww doggie?
That we like something that other white dudes and asian dudes are into? Fuck no. It's fine. Not everyone has to like every thing. If only white guys like it, that doesn't mean that something must be WRONG with it, or white guys, or that the whole institution is sexist and/or racist.
The NBA isn't very racially diverse, and has 0 sexual diversity. Who gives a fuck?
Played at high level, sports don't really increase fitness beyond a point, they increase your ability to play in your role. Football players shorten their lives in many ways, and no, not all of them are related to head banging injuries. Is that fitness? For a quarterback, likely. But plenty of the team is about fulfilling a role. Sumo wrestlers don't live long either- sustaining that much muscle (and of course the famous fat) is hard for any body.
Played at a casual level, of course sports offer benefits. Play football with your other sedentary buddies and you will all increase health.
Played at a high level, e-sports don't really increase cognition beyond a point, they increase your ability to play in your role. Starcraft players don't go on to make vast maps in their head, or use their extraordinary decision making skills in some manner, because a role for those explicit cognophysical tricks just doesn't exist outside of video games. Is that intelligence?
Played at a casual level, of course e-sports offer other benefits. Play starcraft with your other non-computer aware buddies and you will all get better at computers, reaction time, decision making, planning ability, and other facets of cognitive health.
I just got the "hey go check out beta" alert. I figured it would be the same with with different underhood. WOW this is shit. And sure enough, I had to enable scripting. Bro, it's fucking COMMENTS. It doesn't need java, or script, or javafuckingscript.
This could be the death of this site. Sad. Been browsing this since early college.
Dvorak is unquestionably better. The only folks who tried to show otherwise had a Bone-Ta-Pick- they were free market types trying to show that QWERTY was not a failure of the market, which it is- it selects for short term gains over long term efficiency.
The thing is, unlike the shitpile keyboards demonstrated in TFA, I can walk up to a QWERTY box and make it Dvorak. Modern OSes memorize by user, so it doesn't shit on the other users of the machine. Sure, the keyboard still LOOKS dumb- older, nicer keyboards let me swap letters around, after all, and newer ones are not yet smart enough to have the letters generated by LCD or whatever- but it's still fully functional for me or someone who likes the masochistic QWERTY bullshit. Changing caps lock to some split thing, fucking around with the rest of the layout for no reason, breaking the keyboard for anyone but a tippy-tappy casual, is fucked up. I game, I program, I write, and all of these demand a real fucking keyboard, not some shit show. 100% agree with TFA, and no, Dvorak is not any manner of counterexample.
You know what key I always have to disable in the registry though? Fucking Windows Key. The auto-lose key in any game, and conveniently placed directly between two constantly hit thumb keys. What a debacle.
I think "attacker" is the better term. The purpose of security is to *work*, we should choose terms that map to that.
