Because Google is available in every market and there's no barrier for Google entering these markets *eye roll*

You might want to read Google petition to the FCC to reclassify ISPs as Title II common carriers. This will allow Google access the utility poles to run fiber which in many cases they do not.

LMOL Here's a thought, ask them. Seriously you really don't know how government works do you, let alone IT procurement. There's things called budgets and upgrade cycles. Most companies have a budget and a upgrade cycle where you replace equipment. Perhaps you haven't noticed the IRS budget has been slashed and continues to be cut. That's beyond odd since the IRS generates revenue for the Federal government and insures all Americans pay their taxes.

It's not causation since no experiment was conducted to measure this. It's a weak correlation at best, since again, no correlation study was conducted to measure this outcome. It was a meta analysis not an experiment. That's the limitation of the study. It should be touted as proving anything. What it does point to is an interesting of study, something that should be looked at.

I think a reasonable conclusion to be drawn is that prolonged sitting is associated with a number of bad health outcomes and that prolonged sitting should be broken up with breaks during the day.
