What I expect, nay demand, is that Microsoft give Windows 9 away for free as way of apology for forcing that abomination upon us.
We're at a point where there's nothing going for scientists. They have to fight, all simultaneously:
-for funding in a very crowded market
-Politicians trying to control the results of what they do, to the point where the scientific integrity is at risk
-Govt's muzzling you because they don't want pesky things like facts to get in the way of their ideology
-Idiot reporters who completely, constantly, and continually misrepresent your research (should it make the presses)
-umpteen bajillion quacks who don't know their ass from their mouth, yet somehow manage to convince people that they are right and that actual experts are wrong (ie: Jenny McCarthy, or whoever FoodBabe is)
Doing scientific research is hard enough as it is, without having to deal with the current environment of anti-intellectualism.
I'm honestly surprised that scientists arn't yet being marched into concentration camps at gunpoint.
I don't see how this would help. The only results of this I can see are:
- receiver develops antibodies to fight against the diners antibodies
- temporary protection against Ebola until the doner antibodies are consumed
Either way, i don't see how this will provide immunity, since the receivers body isn't actually learning what to do to fight Ebola.
Can someone, preferably an actual doctor or immunologist, clarify?
They could have had a much more interesting picture if they had used 50.

Being constantly hammered by a ceaseless barrage of unnecessary hostility is detrimental to one's well being?
Asking "Why?" is the single most important question you can ask in *any* context. Asking why something is, is what leads to understanding.
No, you don't *need* to explain why. You also don't *need* to eat or breath.
Just because you don't *need* to do something, doesn't mean it's not a good idea to do it.
Silly English knigits!
After having 5 seagate drives fail all within one year, including a momentous xt that died 2 weeks after I got it, it's replacement died a week after that, and THAT replacement died last week (less than 6 months across all three), I will never buy seagate again.
They are peddling crap, and I'm surprised they haven't been hit with a class action lawsuit yet.
Considering that Dropbox has Condi Rice on their Board of Directors, they're in a prime position to target the warmongers market.
Too bad you can't mod and post in the same article. This would have totally gotten my vote.
If I say a colour is one shade of red and you say it's a different shade, that's a disagreement.
Trying to deny another human being from living in an equal capacity from you for no reason other than their choice in sexual partners, is bigotry. It is hate.
The fact that you can't tell the difference between the two just proves my point.
What do you mean by "wasn't"? The vast majority of the world *still* is not accepting of homosexual behaviour. There are countries that murder homosexuals for no other reason than they are homosexual. Heck, look at what Uganda is doing. And note that it was people from the US that put them down that path.
Racism was supposed to have been extinguished, but it's still rampant. Same with genderism, and countless other isms.
The world we live in is a very scary place, because people are care more about hating each other than working together, and I don't see that ever changing.
You *can* however, make it very clear that such behaviour is no longer acceptable in civilized society.
The human population on this planet is now well over 8 billion strong. It is virtually impossible for people to not run into each other, and only slightly less impossible to not run into people that you *choose* to despise.
It's well past time that we grow the f__k up, for our own safety. But people being people, I have zero faith in that actually happening.
Why is it that whenever Apple comes up with something, every else has to copy it (although Microsoft may have started this fad of flatness, I can't remember the timeline anymore)?
Apple is not the be all and end all of industrial design. This fad of flatness is really annoying, and IMO counter intuitive. It's no longer clear what widget is a button, for example. The user now has to guess, based on proximity of a given thingy to the other thingies on the screen.
When the gumdrop iMacs came out, I was eeing transluscent plastic micro waves, clothes irons, you name it.
Thank Dog that companies haven't en masse copied Apple mouse designs. Half the continent would have RSI by the end of the month.
