To be fair, there is usually a great deal of noise to sift through in any given period.
I've yet to have anyone explain clearly why having the internet under the same regulatory regime as the telephone system would be a, net, positive thing. Title II explicitly permits a lot of bad behavior. To me, it fixes one problem and introduces a few dozen others.
Seemingly every law, movement, action, or drug comes with these side effects. I believe the skill associated with doling them out so they cause more good than harm is quite rare indeed.
It is conspicuously absent in the hands of a politician.
Yesterdays news with a better takeaway than you'd get from the current news folks.
Dive in. If nothing else, the other users will make you a better poster, and if you pay attention, a better thinker.
Imagine Dragon the difference if it wasn't a robotic mission.
In my experience, they ALL have a strong, nasty aftertaste. Even sucralose ("Splenda", e.g.) which people still flog as "almost actual sugar" has a bitterness that I can identify after one sip. Most of the time, I can even catch it if it's been used in cooking - I don't know if I'm just sensitive to it or what, but it's bad enough that I opted to learn to take my coffee without sweetener rather than add that junk.
I feel the same way about the city water: there's a chlorine taste/smell that even the RO system cannot remove.
I have gone the black coffee route myself, and now prefer it only that way.
I cannot, however, give up the coke in my whiskey... sacrilegious, right? I use some Diet, and actually prefer the Pepsi throwback non-HFCS blend.
There seem to be plausible arguments for health issues on both sides.. what are some decent alternatives to soda if one must have a mixer??
So Turkish nationalists are buying Google adwords. What's the problem with that? It's an exercise of free speech (for a position that I disagree with).
I have Armenian (and Greek) friends, so I know the basics. Armenians tell me about losing grandparents, aunts and uncles in 1915. This is of course the 100th anniversary. The personal tragedies are overwhelming, and if that wasn't enough, there is the further tragedy of destroying the Armenian and Greek communities and culture in Turkey, and the end of Ottoman tolerance.
I realize there's a debate over the word "genocide." The official Turkish position is, "Let the historians decide." I'm not sure what good that does them. The New York Times leans towards "genocide." http://www.nytimes.com/ref/tim... There is some symbolism here that I can't follow too well.
There is also a small, slowly growing movement among Turks to acknowledge the Armenian position. I don't know how long it will take. I'm not as optimistic as I used to be about world peace and reconciliation.
But Google isn't doing anything wrong.
Two takes from this:
Free speech, first and foremost, especially to the folks who disagree with me.
Eyes wide open, a very close second, get your important information from as many sources as possible.
The business of government contracting not only implies cost overruns... it virtually guarantees it.
TFA was a bit sketchy on details, but it did seem to indicate her Facebooking had something to do with the mistrial, and eventual acquittal... whether or not this is factually accurate,
it's probably safe to say this was poor judgement on her part.
Sadly, your medical care is incentivized in the same fashion as an automotive repair: the more repairs that are necessary, the greater the final invoice.
This is not to suggest there are not a great many ethical physicians, but we would be fools to overlook the likelihood that some sociopaths have slithered into the profession.
Here's to hoping they don't find any oil there, given the earthquakes it's caused in OK.
FWIW, except for the trailer-home salesmen, people here find the annual tornado problem much more inconvenient than the increase in 1.0 to 3.0 Richter quakes.
