Medicare and the VA have the lowest overhead costs for their coverage. Also every other developed industrialized nation has a form of government healthcare and they seem to be doing fine.
Actually like 30% of the grants they fund include an MD-PhD principal investigator or collaborator.
I don't know if that rule applies anymore. It seems that there are more incompetent people in managerial positions nowadays because of all the MBA and HR types that call the shots instead of true engineers. Real management is hard as any engineer will tell you, but ask any MBA or HR drone and they will tell you that they are all perfect managers. The real problem is that the more incompetent someone is, the more oblivious they are of their own incompetence even though it is painfully obvious to the talented people around them.
Gordon Moore founded Intel along with Robert Noyce and they formed this company after leaving Fairchild semiconductor which was after they left Shockley.
Mod parent up, He has hit the nail on the head. This man has perfected the art of litigation.
Amazon would have probably sued them for another 10 years if they denied their patent. Patents today seem to have nothing to do with novelty. They are just being filed to extract fees from other entities which are implementing the same common sense solutions.
No but schools are not being forced to teach homeopathy, yet many are being forced to teach creationism. I think that equation one aisle in a whole foods store to an entire museum is a bit of a stretch. And then to turn around and blame the "liberal media" is childish.
Horse shit. The microprocessor was the work of people like Bill Shockley, Robert Noyce, Gordon Moore, Jay Last, etc. This guy patented some overly broad concept and tried to use those rights to patent troll.
Way to blame the "mainstream media" man? Listen let me know next time when Whole foods plans on taking my tax dollars to indoctrinate my children in some religious beliefs and get back to me. This article is nothing but a troll.
Why did you try to interject race into this? They have magnet schools here in many states which are public schools where entrance is merit based. These schools are not being with lawsuits. Please go and look at the top schools list in the US News rankings because you have no clue what you are talking about. Also I did not say that vocation jobs were inferior to college educated jobs. You however seem to imply that. Vocational training in plumbing, construction, drafting, electrician type work, machining, etc would do a lot to help kids in high school more than any of those stupid don't do drugs campaigns. The problem with schools today is two fold. The parents don't care about their kids enough to spend time with them and are using school as a substitute for daycare. The administrators seeing this are busy turning schools into a prison pipeline while making 3-4 times what a teacher makes.
I agree. If anything schools here should be more like schools in Germany where they have strong vocational training programs for people who are not suitable for university education. Also it would be nice if schools worked with students and their parents to steer them towards careers they find interesting instead of trying to force a generic curriculum on everyone.
I think if you pick extreme examples then obviously you will find loopholes because no rights are absolute. For example, I would not expect a Jewish baker to make a cake with a Swastika. However, I don't think it would be reasonable for the Jewish baker to say that he won't bake cakes for Germans or people who are not Jewish because it violates his belief. If he wants to operate like that then he should do so in a private venue like at home, not in a public setting.
You do realize that back in the 1960's that not one of the restaurants in the deep South would have gone bankrupt if they refused service to black people right. I mean I am not able to understand what the hell your problem is with guaranteeing civil rights. Please go and re-read the 14th amendment because you clearly are not able to get it through your head. Now if you want to prevent gays or blacks from entering your private residence that is perfectly fine because that is not a public establishment.
Yes, but that does not include the veterans benefits and health care when you say "defense spending".
Well then please explain why is Edward Snowden so respected while Julian Assange is hated here. (For the record I support what both of them did)
