The problem with a war on guns is that the opposition has guns.
Next time you see this, ask your 'visitors' if they would like a bag so that they can clean up after their pet. I'm assuming that if you have a yard, that you live in a neighborhood, so you probably have a small number of repeat offenders. If you put the culprits on the spot a couple times, they will probably stop letting their pets use your yard.
This is a really interesting application, but I can't even begin to imagine the challenges with patient privacy on a platform like this.
Well, then, maybe the US equipment is a front for spying ops, and that's why the US government is nervous about being subjected to the same thing.
The top threats listed in TFA are all common-sense things to avoid with work machines. (Visiting porn sites, letting family members use equipment, installing malicious mobile apps, and falling for phishing emails.) There is a reason us IT folks tell people not to do these things at work.
Trans fats are stable and solid at room temperature. This is desirable in a food product. Trans fats are horrid, but they may or may not be more horrid than whatever comes along to replace them. The real solution is for the US government to stop subsidizing processed food by making corn and soy artificially cheap. As long as McDonald's is cheaper than quality vegetables, people will continue to eat garbage.
But nothing actually guarantees that the tenants will be the only ones in the unit. Tenants can invite friends over, hire housesitters, and allow family members/friends/etc to stay for long periods of time. And even if it's a violation of the lease, tenants can and do bring in roommates who aren't on the lease. Landlords can rent out to pretty much anyone they damn well like, and if the landlord decides to rent to someone shady then you're stuck with unsavory neighbors anyway. So your point isn't really valid.
The only thing that will save us from the massive dragnet of the NSA is apparently the incompetence of the NSA.
Is there a compelling reason why this should be illegal? If someone has extra capacity in their home (couch, spare bedroom, vacancy from being on vacation) then why should the city care? And if landlords are finding that they can make extra money by not being landlords anymore, isn't that a different problem?
I will never stay at a hotel that responds to a complaint on the internet with a $95k lawsuit.
The initial round of drilling is only half the problem. Disposal after fracking isn't mentioned, but should also be studied. Fracking fluid disposal is prone to problems like spills at the surface level, which will contaminate an aquifer. Fracking fluid disposal has also been shown to cause earthquakes. http://www.cleveland.com/business/index.ssf/2012/03/shale_gas_drilling_caused_smal.html
I would be interested to see the findings related to what this wheat was engineered to do, as well as how far it has spread. The 'gluten-free' diet has been gaining a lot of popularity lately, and a lot of people who do not have Celiac disease swear that avoiding grains like wheat makes them feel a lot better. I wonder if it is possible that this 12-year-old mutant strain is related to that sensitivity somehow?
Is the economy more important than general happiness? Canada's crime rate is mich lower than that of the US. People live on average about 3 years longer. And, from my own completely not-scientific view, based on visits, folks up North seem a lot happier, on average. The government resources required to pay for that stuff are a drain on the economy, true, but safer and longer lives seem to be a pretty good trade-off.

Video author made this real, multi-shot gun out of $10 worth of scrap metal. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Av0pEqR5KWs Shall we ban metal now as well?
