The AC was sorta half right. It is not uncommon for hardware to break the standard so that it works with Windows. That sort of thing is becomm9ing less common but it's hardly unknown.
If that can be made to work, it would be a 100% cure. Of course, you'd have to convince the immune system not to attack the replacement beta cells.
I wondered that myself. There would be great value if the bacteria could be engineered to maintain a limited population so the host would get a baseline supply of insulin. They would probably still require injections to keep well regulated, but it would be less and with reduced consequences if they were unable to do that for a time.
Perhaps it could even be enough to let a type I diabetic manage their blood sugar more like a type II sufferer.
One is modifying bacteria in a lab to produce a vital medication. The other is modifying plants growing out in the open to make them produce pesticides that they swear won't hurt us when we eat them.
Carriers have machine and wood shops where they fabricate lots of things, including needed parts for the carrier.
Technically it's giving smaller amounts of something, not taking anything away. Nonetheless marginally it makes perfect sense to talk about "doling out cuts". It means starting with a total net cut and dividing the marginal impact among several parties.
Yes, it will raise a few eyebrows among editorial prigs, but it's perfectly clear what "doling out cuts" means.
If you add up all the auxiliary stuff you need to power with electricity and round up generously, it's maybe 2000 watts load. The very best commercially available technology of today can run that load for 45 hours. So the impact of the auxiliary system load is marginal. That means it's only a concern if you're contemplating using close to the maximum range of your car. If you're traveling 15 miles each way in an 84 mile range Leaf, or 80 miles each way in a 250 mile range Tesla S, you don't really need to worry about running the heater and lights, even counting diminished battery capacity.
The average American spends 25 minutes each way commuting; even in NYC the average figure is 34.6. Even double or tripling that commute time due to bad weather and halfing the range due to cold, that's still easy for the Tesla. It's a bit of challenge for the Leaf with its 24 kwh battery and 84 mile range.
If the typical electric cars of ten years from now perform close to the high end of today, then the vast majority of people won't have to worry about cold weather's effect on range. But a sizable minority of Americans are what the US Census characterizes as "extreme commuters": people whose commute takes more than 90 minutes or fifty miles each way. Even at the low end of that spectrum cold weather range won't be an issue, but if you commute from Fargo to Bismarck ND every day it's safe to say you aren't going to be going electric any time soon.
It seems that for things like that, rather than bright streetlights, simple lighted markers should suffice.
The most popular theory is that it's transferring momentum via virtual particles. That has some startling implications, but it's less physics shaking than violating conservation of momentum. I'm not sure anyone has come up with any solid testable hypotheses yet, but it seems to be something that is likely to be testable in principle.
You'd have to work out the math, but I'd be cautious being too aggressive with relativistic reasoning. Conservation of energy and momentum in special relativity are a bit tricky to start with, and don't hold when you start jumping between reference frames.
Actually, I meant in the other sense. The American public has a right to know that an agency of it's government is illegally spying on them. The public has no such overriding interest in the personal details of federal employees.
It could, of course, be that they reviewed the benefits and risks and drew their own conclusions which sometimes match the consensus and sometimes don't.
And meanwhile, Snowden's release had a strong element of public interest to it. There is no public interest in OPM's screw up.
True, but unlike all of the domestic spying going on, securing American networks and government systems from foreign attack is very much part of their charter. They blew it big time.
Since we are discussing rules for the society where those links hold true, it hardly matters.
If/when society changes radically enough, we can revisit.
That will be quite a radical change though since as far back as written history goes, we find remarks about young adults being more rash and hot-headed than their elders and so in need of guidance.

If your claim was true, parents would instinctively tell their 5 year olds to go to bed when they feel like it and wouldn't worry about it if their 12 year old decided not to come home until morning.
Instead, they recognize that the 5 year old is developmentally advanced enough to avoid immediate threats but is nowhere near ready to plan their future.
Your knowledge is decades out of date.
