no, but the prisons are full of people who are in for simple possession.
true if you're talking about AIDS.
no big Pharma is researching Ebola because hardly anyone has it (compared to erectile disfunction, HIV, high blood pressure, cholesterol and sleep disorders).
How many universities in this country even have BSH4 facilities to study these kinds of things? Are they even allowed to have these pathogens - think physical security - not Chemturion suits (brand name for http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/P...).. but armed response for the perimeter. USAMRIID certainly has guns close by if not onsite, and I'm sure CDC can have tanks parked out front in minutes if necessary... what if the bad guys get the smallpox stored at the CDC?
the WHO only officially allows 2 facilities in the WORLD to store live smallpox.. so if you can't get your hands on the material. you can't study it.
of course you could always find some in a cardboard box at the FDA. http://www.nytimes.com/2014/07...
How many of these African countries have consistent electricity and running water.. and you're talking about medical research?
the current outbreak is the worst in about 40 years.. BUT the mortality this time is 50-60% vs. 90% in previous outbreaks. it appears that progress is being made and there's no indication of direct US assistance in that effort (but I'm sure there are American doctors and American dollars going to the WHO to bolster the effort.
USAMRIID is part of the Army - they research infectious diseases and try to find vaccines/cures in case someone weaponizes something like smallpox (very real possibility since it just loves humans and is transmitted through the air.)
I'm sure if the Pfizers and Mercks of the world put their heads together, they could find a solution, but with only a couple thousand cases, it's not profitable.
Bottom line is the only people interested are government entities - with very large military budgets - there aren't a lot of those in the world.
read Hot Zone and Demon in The Freezer - both non fiction. Hot Zone is about Ebola, Demon is about how the US Responds to biological threats (this is covered http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/R...)
interesting and terrifying at the same time.
first they get the manuals.. in braille. then they turn on voiceover (it's baked in to iOS)
lighthouse for the blind:
the beacons cost $20 each.
yes. resources are finite, but $20 per is not a lot.
...great, totally ineffective unless you have wireless intercourse as well.
what the fuck are sharks going to do with tomatoes?
charge time might be the same, but Tesla owns RANGE.
The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) official range for the Model S Performance model equipped with an 85 kWh battery pack is 265 miles (426 km)
The US Environmental Protection Agency official range for the 2013 model year Leaf is 121 km (75 mi) and rated the Leaf's combined fuel economy at 115 miles per US gallon gasoline equivalent (2.0 L/100 km).
yeah, a Tesla also costs 4x more than the Leaf, but if others get onboard and develop a standard... guess what - that cost goes down
Musk is a smart guy
I think it's still free. no bullshit, I tried it for literally 10 minutes and was touch typing w/o looking at the keyboard.
I think it registers your taps in relative position to each other and has predictive correction/selection
This will probably be my third party keyboard of choice once iOS8 comes out.
there's an app for that.
then what of this?
or do London Metro cops no longer carry guns, and that was just a temporary thing because this incident happened in the weeks following the bus bombings (and immediately following attempted bombings the day before)?
traffic = other people = witnesses
"The police official said the GPS device helped lead the police to the man, who was confronted as his 2007 Jeep was stuck in traffic on a service road beneath the Franklin D. Roosevelt Drive at East 96th Street. "
"He served about 16 years in prison during two stints between 1990 and 2008 for sexual abuse and robbery convictions, according to state records."
that's not spoofing, that's hijacking.
spoof means use your own, but make people think it's someone else.
slipped on some tea if I recall.
I don't know why you got modded down.
