Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
"Polls – a poll is usually run on the site in the right-hand margin, asking users their choice on a variety of topics. In the earlier years of the site, one of the options that could be selected was CowboyNeal, the handle of Jonathan Pater, an administrator of the site. This became known as the CowboyNeal option. During the summer of 2005, he stopped being in charge of the polls, and as a result the CowboyNeal option disappeared."
Those nasty bugs can't hurt me, because my immune system gets high every day I see them.
Muscles are heavier (more dense) than fat and exercise has some anabolic effect too. So in the first period a study person is loosing fat and gaining muscle mass. When the muscle amount stabilizes on the higher lever, you will see the weight drop. This effect was nicely seen in SuperSize me.
I tried this with two laptops, and you have to keep the lid open, because processor overheats otherwise.
This is bad for the space it occupies and for the dust that keeps raining on the keyboard
With lid open, it works great.
"It merely means that more people are searching on that term."
Thank you for your kind explanation, I meant that this means something completely different
Windows XP is the most used OS on this planet in this moment. People search for drivers, support, software, forums, common problems etc. A agree with you, that they type different search terms for them. But
over 50% against under 0,5%
It sounds a bit strange for me
1% is underestimation of facts.
They do actually comment it on their web site: http://www.bristol.ac.uk/alspac/documents/tv-asthma-risk.pdf
And this link is the first link on the front page of the study. They are just not serious and this is not something so uncommon in academic circles these days
Why do they still throw money on such studies with total lack of scientific imagination ?
THe cause: YES, WE CAN !!
And they do it. They get a big budget from the country and then they do the "research". But the bill has come and also UK will have to find a way to think, where will they pounds be spend. They didn't bother till now
The most important part: having asthma is not he same as having less active asthma. This study is talking about getting asthma, not about having asthma properly treated.
So the question remains the same and is still unanswered by this stupid study: Does enough early live exercise prevents people from getting asthma ?
We don't know that, I only hope my taxpayers money is not spent on this nonsense
It doesn't. You are making the same mistake, those "researchers" are doing. You don't know why some people are more active and some are less.
Nothing in life is certain
