But it may be that you don't get any nutritional value out of the seaweed, and Japanese people do.

Don't enzymes need to be produced by the body? (I.e., they aren't alive and won't replicate just because we're feeding them.)
On the other hand, maybe the body will start producing enzymes when they're needed, in some cases. Is there a microbiologist/nutritionist in the house?
Enzymes aren't the same as gut bacteria--our body actually produces them. I've been told that whether a person produces a given enzyme (like lactase) partly depends on their habits (if they continue drinking milk throughout their lives), but I believe there's also a strong genetic component.
Do all ads pay per click, nowadays? Because I think I've only clicked one ad in the past year, so I shouldn't feel guilty about bypassing ads.
On the other hand, if some ads still pay per page-view, then I might want to think about tweaking my ad-blocking so that I don't block ads on a domain until they do something that bothers me (ad with sound, ads that severly slow down a page, inappropriate ad, etc.)
I'd like to see what happens. I do not support this ban, but I look forward to reading about its effect on the behavior and crimes of children and young adults (assuming that a few years from now, someone manages to get good data about the behavior of children).
'qualm the clamor'
"Quell the clamor"
On my distro (arch) they're automatically bound to the "XF86Back" and "XF86Forward", and think they only generate one keycode for me. It might prove fruitful to search for instructions about how to get media keys working with linux.
Those are pretty awesome; my personal favourite use for them is switching virtual desktops
That's exactly what I use them for
I love the keyboard on my 2.5 year old thinkpad. Especially the dedicated "back" and "forward" buttons, which I've remapped to more useful functions. In fact, I think the keyboard is almost a "killer feature" that none of their competitors can match. If they start removing buttons I use, I may be able to make my next laptop a system76 or clevo.
Why would the word jewry be offensive?
The word isn't offensive--it would only be offensive if the church was claiming to be Jewish. (I had before never heard "Jewry" used as a location--only things like the "Jewish Quarter".)
To understand why it's offensive when Christians say they're Jews, imagine you're a Catholic. Some guy (born Catholic) takes your Bible and starts a cult around it, decrying old tenets, adding new and incompatible beliefs, and worshipping another god (alongside your old God). The cult becomes very big, many times more numerous than Catholicism. Then some members of this cult start calling it Catholicism. You might feel like your own culture was a little threatened.
This church is called "St Lawrence Jewry"? What a confusing and possibly offensive (to Jews) name for a church. Unless there's something I'm missing about British English.
What the hell is this? You think you won't get any antibiotics in Norway when you actually need it?
I think Norway defines "need" rather differently than the USA.
it does make Staph less problematic, in that, for serious infections, antibiotics can still be used
Yeah, you're right. The article says at one point that "we don't have modern antibiotics, because if we had them here, doctors would use them." I incorrectly interpreted that to mean that they just don't use modern antibiotics, no matter how serious the infection.
I clarified here But what I meant was that in the great majority of cases, if you get staph in the US, your situation is the same as if you get it in Norway: you will either be given antibiotics that don't work, or you will not be given antibiotics. In either case, your body has to fight off the infection on its own, which takes time, but we don't have a better way. (The caveat is that Norway does use antibiotics if a patient's life is in danger.)
Sorry to reply to myself, but I didn't read the whole article before. Apparently they do give out antibiotics in the most extreme cases, and that seems much more reasonable than "we don't have MRSA because we just let our Staph victims die."
