Wow, the introduction already goes into the money aspect. They write, "Chronic pain is an enormous unmet medical need with a multi-billion dollar impact on society"

An alarm system that goes off when someone opens a can of pop may be better.
Coke etc. affects the brain and mental state.
Wasn't there once a guy from Texas who removed the section on crimes against humanity from George Bush's wikipedia page?
Found the Tentative Decision at http://studentsmatter.org/wp-c...
On page 8 it says
"Dr. Berliner, an expert called by State Defendants, testified that 1-3% of teachers in California are grossly ineffective."
There is a huge difference between 1% and 3%. (That's like saying "I'll be there in 5 hours +- 2.5 hours"). On the other hand, how many "grossly ineffective" workers / managers are there in other professions?
Now, why have these teachers been hired? Is eliminating tenure really going to change this figure? Are competent teachers going to get fired because they don't have tenure? Why is the waiting period only 2 years? Similar considerations are discussed at http://intl.kappanmagazine.org...
With complicated systems like this, it makes no sense to look at one single element, and blame only it. So the decision will have large gaps in the logic.
And everyone else!
Can't find the article available for online reading, beyond http://www.nature.com/nmeth/jo...
But one wonders about the sample size and the statistical significance of the experiments.
Remote controls can be regulated. That's the civilized way to deal with such issues.
Here's a paper about the wave function and computability (computability beyond P, NP, etc)
Marian Boykan Pour-El and Ian Richards. The wave equation with computable initial data such that its unique solution is not computable. Advances in mathematics, vol. 39 (1981), pp. 215–239.
I did write a blog post about quantum mechanics and the “free will theorem” at the time.
I think this new development isn't covering all possibilities there
That's great news for the sugarmotor!
Famous mathematician Cauchy, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Augustin-Louis_Cauchy (1789 – 1857), was a "royalist."
Haven't got to tracking down more details about his attitude.
Always find it a bit odd when people complain about documentation, or place emphasis on it. My first prioroty is, "it works".
On the other hand, it is hardly clear in most cases, who the audience of the comments are. Do they know much, do they know little? If they know little, there needs to be a lot of documentation. Who is to say?
So when I hear about people, who mention bad documentation, or who complain about some documentation, it strikes me a bit odd.
It might have been. But too late now.
Downhill now. Not that it was at great heights. But more safe to ignore.
