the ONLY reason to use itunes is that you own an iDevice or want to buy from the Apple store. If you are not doing that, why the hell are you using itunes?
Yes. people go to their concerts or buy the songs from them, musicians rely on radio and streaming stations to get their music known and wanted by the public. If a station is making RECORD profits, then they must share that profit with the artists. nonprofits get to play all music for free as much as they want.
In medicine it is fully understood that you can pretty much bleed any patient's wallet dry.
Step1 - Stop going to ANY restaurant or delivered food. All of it is utter crap, stop eating it.
Step2 - Buy only foods that are from the fresh food section and meat section. Veggies+Meat and only dark brown breads with whole wheat/grains
Step3 - download and install myfitness pal and do it religiously.
Step4 - repeat.
The biggest is to abandon restaurants completely. Every place from McDonalds to a 5 star bistro only make low grade dog food. Stop eating that crap. This step alone will make a HUGE difference.
They already have that, It's called gastric bypass and liposuction. you dont even have to wait to lose the weight.
Most doctors education is lacking, Once the leave med school I don't see them going back for more education. My family doctor of 45 years graduated med school and became a GP in 1955, he even delivered me when I was born, and I saw him regularly until he died this past year. I know his education in medicine was way out of date but he was smart enough to refer me to a different doctor or specialist when It was needed. GP's need to do the same and refer patients to specialists that have more recent education that know about the treatments.
I know my doctor was the exception, he did house calls and worked until he died. I know he charged people what they could pay and refused to abide by the "minimum pricing racket" that the insurance companies and feds require. He became a doctor to help people, not to become wealthy. And he helped people all the way to the moment he died.
And yes the last 2 decades I drove all the way back to that small town to visit him as my doctor. Because I wanted a doctor that cared about people, not his Porsche. (He drove a Chevy btw...)
Features like keyless entry are apparently run by that computer and so it never goes into a deep sleep state.
That is an utterly unsatisfying explanation in a world with hardware interrupts.
A typical high end mobile phone with wifi and 3G connections and background sync is more like 1 or 2W maximum (averaged over a day, of course).
And they will wakeup from deep sleep if you press a button.
I do, however, happen to know people, like myself, who may well be interested in such an 'expensive' vehicle (my current car is a BMW7) , bur also have some real-life issues, like weekend homes, where they like to switch the power off,
While you're there? If not, take the car with you. If so, then install a small off-grid maintenance solar system. You've already got kooky habits.
streets in cities where they like to park for more than a few days without a handy power socket, etc.
You'd park a 7-series on the street for days? Not me.
I remain unconvinced, 1100w (per day - which I call when no one else does
I agree. The computer should sleep when not in use. That's excessive.
Welcome to the world of cars which are not astoundingly expensive. The 2000+ Astro will drain the battery if you leave the keys in the ignition. Apparently, so will the 1992+ Ford F250, and it doesn't even have a BCM! Nobody was sending techs 'round for those problems, either.
The problem with the 12 volt battery is exactly what caused all the problems with the review car that John Broder wrote about. Hmm, I guess Broder might not have been the big liar that Musk and his gang of fanboys painted him out to be.
Nope. This problem is with the car sitting still. That was a complaint about the car running out of battery precisely when it told the driver that it would, after he failed to charge it when it told him to. Broder is still a liar.
I'm certain this is absolutely pointless to say now, but most of those setups were designed so that spring pressure had to be overcome to close the lenses; that way, if the mechanism did fail, it *should* fail-safe to the open position.
Well, no. Not in the Nissan. Like most imports, the Nissan uses a worm gear motor to actuate the headlights, or at least, it did from the eighties to the nineties. It was true in my 1984 300ZX, and it was true in my 1989 240SX, so I'm quite sure it was also true in the 1986 Pulsar. The motor pack has an arm on it like a windshield wiper, and a short pushrod attaches with small ball joints. The best part of the whole thing is that on the top of the motor there's a small knob in the same brick-red color as the fuel injector harness connectors. If your pop-up headlights fail, then you just disconnect the electrical connector if necessary and turn the knob to raise or lower the headlight. Since it's a worm gear drive it takes quite a few revolutions, but that's not a serious problem.
That's just stupid. It won't hurt anyone to wait 20 seconds for the computers to boot up.
That's just stupid. Not only might it hurt someone, but there's a third way: sleep mode. Modern computers can sleep on truly wispy amounts of power. What kind of chip did they use, a Nacho?
This begs the question, is the fuel cell technology in fact less destructive than whatever would normally have been used? A typical high-end hobbyist drone today uses the very clean and recyclable LiFePO4 chemistry, which also has more recharge cycles than previous Li-Ion technologies. Fuel cells are often made of exotic metals in high-energy processes. Most fuel cells are hydrogen cells, and most hydrogen is cracked from natural gas in an energy-intensive process. I know that Protonex works with hydrogen fuel cells, but I don't actually know for a fact that this is a hydrogen fuel cell vehicle.
I suspect that this is in fact more energy-intensive than the drone would have been simply using batteries, and if you used a nice clean fuel, it's certainly more energy-intensive than it would have been to use a microturbine.
There is a vast difference between fecal transplants and the "probiotics" that you find in the healthfood section of your local store.
Yes, that's true. The former is for use in emergencies. The latter is what you use to avoid getting into an emergency situation. Because as it turns out, your intestines are possibly the home of your immune system in a very real way. Your gut bacteria turn out to be very important to immune defense, and what you eat has a direct influence on your gut bacteria. In particular, eating a lot of sugars feeds the harmful organisms and permits them to outcompete the beneficial ones.
The key difference is that one has been proven to work in rigorous and repeated scientific study, and the other has not.
Yes, that's what the FDA says about anything that hasn't undergone tests which check their particular boxes, whether they're good science or not. I have looser standards than they do. Also, I don't actually trust them. In this case the EU health cocks say the same thing, but that's no different really.
It's more like a safe deposit box than a home. And it can be accessed at any time without your consent.
