"The idea is that it may have greater effects [in beer than in wine]," he added.
"The amount of red wine you'd need to drink to get the same results they get with rats in labs is about half a bottle a day."
So until this beer is in production I will have to endure drinking half a bottle of red wine every day, for health's sake!
Apparently it is far easier to declare a person's death than it is to correct the mistake."The accuracy of death information is critical to SSA and its beneficiaries, as well as other federal, state and local government agencies," it said in a 2006 report. "Input of an erroneous death entry can lead to benefit termination and result in financial hardship for a beneficiary."
It appears that up until mid-2006 death records were openly available, but now they are classified as top-secret."Social Security says an erroneous death record can be removed only when it is presented with proof that the original record was entered in error. The original error must be documented, and the deletion must be approved by a supervisor after "pertinent facts supporting reinstatement" are available in the system.
In contrast, in China there are 1.5 million prisoners and in Russia a mere 890,000."For the first time in U.S. history, more than one in every 100 adults are in jail or prison, according to a new report documenting America's rank as the world's No. 1 incarcerator. It urges states to curtail corrections spending by placing fewer low-risk offenders behind bars.
Using state-by-state data, the report says 2,319,258 Americans were in jail or prison at the start of 2008 — one in 99.1 adults. Whether per capita or in raw numbers, it's more than any other nation.
Apparently there is 'rampant piracy' with more than 6 million broadband users downloading files illegally every year."The government will on Friday tell internet service providers they will be hit with legal sanctions from April next year unless they take concrete steps to curb illegal downloads of music and films. Britain would be one of the first countries in the world to impose such sanctions. Service providers say what the government wants them to do would be like asking the Royal Mail to monitor the contents of every envelope posted.
