Yes, but I still believe that they are a minority and consider them as few bad apples in a batch. You can take any group of people and always some percentage of them are evil. This was exactly my point. Unfortunately they get to be on the rampage too long before they are caught, but they are caught sooner or later. I still encourage to catch as many criminals as possible before letting them in.

And what do you do with immigrants that do not want to conform to the norms of the parent country?

Most of the immigrants want to live decently. Even ones that come because of better welfare. Few of them already have high education, many of them are willing to learn. They are not only stealing jobs, but also creating new ones as they spend.

These people do not differ from the people already living in whatever country. Sure there is some cultural differences but deep down we are all the same. It makes no sense except different kind of behavior when it comes to rules.

Certain percentage is always hostile, this is also true among locals. There is no reason to think that different kind of control is needed.

Sure these people need a lot of support at the beginning. The thing that slows down integration most is the idiocy and attitude of locals. If you are not friendly, do not except immigrants to respect you. Most of the problems with immigrants are caused by locals.

In the long run, it does not matter why people came to the country. All people are workforce that increases GDP, at least statistically. Governments can think farther then one generation, grandchildren of immigrants will be well integrated and willing to want all the stuff we want and they need to work to get it.

Reaction pathways in body are complicated. It will convert all kind of nutrients to needed molecules. To make it more complex there is many different kind of inhibition mechanisms to limit conversions. Chemistry and physics is well understood but it will take time to map and understand all cumulative reactions.

On the other hand human kind is proven in practise that you can survive with crappy diet quite well. I don't think caveman's main reason to die was crappy diet but rather diseases and accidents.

However nowdays it is necessary, not just to survive, but feel good and make optimal procress and have good energy levels trough day.

To my experience eating less calories then you use will make you thiner. But it will also make you hungry if you eat energy rich foods. If you switch low energy foods you can eat more and it will stretch your stomach more wich tells your brain that you are full. Therefor you are not hungry anymore.

Making things even more complicated, people are not clones. Then there is the human mind screwing things and making shit up.

as a direct result of the success of the company.

Google has been manipulating search results in past.

I think it is good thing to stop this kind of thing happening. I do care from business rights to do their own choises and business models. But at the same time, I do not want to live in the world where everything can and will be controlled with money.

There is expected behavior of products. Consumer can't make in depth analysis of companies all to time to figure out all their connections. Just to find out which way he/she is getting screwed this time. Protecting the consumer rights is good thing, they have rights too.

In USA corporations have way too much power. At the same time I'm very happy by not being the one who has to draw these lines.

Eat more plants, eat more non-meat protein, eat higher quality carbs.

My weight has gone up and down trough all my life. While it has never been a big problem. It has been something I have to sometimes pay attention to. This is pretty much the formula I use to loose weight (+exercise). Stomach is pretty stupid. When it has enough food in it, it is satisfied and vegetables are good way to fill stomach. It will take time to process those foods and after three hours you are allowed to eat again.

Because some crimes deserve the ultimate penalty. Read what this guy did and then tell me he doesn't deserve to die.

Punishment is often mixed with revenge. There is no need to hurt these people or take their lives. They just need to be kept away from normal nice people, if they are not capable to follow rules. With smaller crimes there should be possibility to return society, in case they are grown up and ready to follow rules (yes this sometimes happens).

Mommy, what happens to your files when you die?
