That's great, so roughly 45 years after my unborn grandchildren die of old age, the copyright will finally expire.
Wow, someone sure seems optimistic about copyright law.
Please stop. Contrary to what stupid people say, there is nutrition in Mcdonalds burger. Plenty, in fact. there is also a load ton of fat and salt. And HFCS is no different then Cane Sugar or beat sugar.
HFCS has 5% more fructose and 5% less glucose than Cane sugar
And the homeopathic crowd goes wild!
I don't think that word means what you think it means.
whole grain bread generally has about the same glycemic index as white bread. (It depends on how the bread is prepared, but the standard whole grain bread you see on the shelf is within 5 points of white bread.) Generally this is ~70 for whole grain and ~73 for white bread (Compared to table sugar, which is ~65).
One of the more interesting things I see regarding regular diet books vs paleo/primal diet books is the use of scientific studies to back up their advice. I don't really see any traditional diets back up anything they say with facts. Generally it's more of a 'well, everybody knows this' mentality, which isn't science. On the other hand, if you look at books that promote the higher fat, low carb/no grain diets they end up having bibliographies 17+ pages long that cite scientific studies.
There's a lot of science that backs up the whole low carb diet. However, there's not as much money in it as processed food. To take a recent example, Michelle Obama tried to get schools to take out some of the potato and grain products and replace them with vegetables. This was blocked, mostly due to the Potato board lobbying the politicians and giving them campaign contributions in return for blocking the bill. (This is how our political system works these days.)
You also hear a lot of press saying 'we're being told we can't cover this' by the police and abiding to it. The police are considering their actions to require the same selective reporting that wars do. I'm not sure if this has gone on a long time and it's the first time I've seen the press talk about it so openly, or if it's part of the militarization of the police departments that we've seen since 9/11.
Next time lawyer up, dumbass. Representing yourself in court is one of the single dumbest things you can do.
hah, yeah. Even lawyers refuse to represent themselves.
still he was going to talk in defcon as panelist. defcon cant let this slide - if they do, any private party may attempt to sue any panelist out of defcon.
It's not the first time a talk has been pulled due to legal action and it won't be the last.
