On the other hand, Rand Paul just killed the worst parts of the Patriot Act. Hopefully it'll stay dead, or at least maimed. I don't know too much about Paul, but I think I'm going to find out more about him, from the most objective and reliable sources I can find.
RIght, because if it were cost effective to move your encyclopedia to the Internet, Britannica would have done it first. And if it were cost efficient to stream music, record companies would have done it first.
Because that is exactly how the free market works. Perfect every single time. I'm glad you were paying attention during Indoctrination to Economics 101.
A dual socket mobo with 16-core AMD CPUs in each socket will probably spank your current Intel system. That's one area AMD excels at, they sell 8 and 12 core CPUs cheap, 16-core if you're serious.
Must be doing great since it made massive cuts in spending like you wanted. Canada on the other hand must be doing terrible since it didn't.
Show me the year the US debt went down?
2000 and 2001 in constant dollars and, more importantly 1996 to 2001 in percentage of GDP.
You can easily find this data in wikipedia. The fact that you haven't proves that you care about defending ideology rather than what actually happens in real life.
And if GWB had not implemented the "revenue increasing" tax cuts the debt would have been completely wiped out in a few short years. You don't have to believe me, Alan Greenspan said exactly this when he begged congress to implement tax cuts.
Factcheck is a partisan joke.
That's what sore losers say when proven wrong by a non-partisan organization.
You would need a lot more research that (I don't believe has been done) on how often you really need to adjust your thyroid. As cdrugde mentions, thyroid testing is done infrequently - on the order of months. To have an implantable system that fired off that infrequently is probably not really worth it. Dogma is that thyroid hormones don't change that much - at least a clinically noticeable values.
Most of the thyroid replacement research these days seems to be around the issue of 'minor' thyroid hormones, mostly T3. Even with this issue, we don't have good data. And T3 is produced at about 10% of the rate of T4 (the traditional thyroid hormone) so it isn't some scarce little molecule.
But if you really look closely at how much we know about things like this, it's pretty disappointing. This sort of research is slow and very expensive. Given that thyroid pills are pennies and that people do 'pretty well' on that treatment, the impetus to improve things is small.
There's a law of Internet discussions by which the person who first uses the word "lie" is the almost always the one doing so:
Q: During the Clinton administration was the federal budget balanced? Was the federal deficit erased?
A: Yes to both questions, whether you count Social Security or not.
If you perform enough miracles enough times when THEIR decisions have caused (predictable) problems they will start to believe that THEY are the ones performing miracles.
At which point the problems will pile on.
Be ready to leave before that point. If there are certifications, collect them and keep them current.
Try to interview at least once every quarter. Even if you do not intend to leave your job.
AC's are leaving?
MS? As best as I know Google was the first company I ever heard doing this back in 2005 or so.
You mean they've gimped GIMP?
AIDS, Hepatitis, GC, Herpes - Mac users can get all sorts of infections. It's really scary sometimes.
