It's a followup to a previous article featured on Slashdot, showing how the Streisand effect is strong enough to shut down a health care practice.

Not necessarily, that "Mutual Privacy Agreement" is the kind of stupid shit dental consultants sell, and practices that hire these charlatans are usually in pretty bad trouble financial trouble. A fair number of Dentists develop bad personal spending habits, dentistry requires a high degree of hard won skills, which leads to big ego's and sometimes narcissistic behaviours like impulsive spending habits.

Yes actually it is part of salt, table salt or sea salt are complex mixtures of primarily sodium, potassium and calcium halide salts those halides are primarily chlorides, fluorides, iodides. Mid-western soils are iodine depleted so we need more iodine than is naturally in the salt to make up the difference.

Seriously, every statement you made there was an outright lie. Including the "No warming for 17 years" lie. Current temperatures are will withing the 95% confidence limits of the AR4 model assemblage.

Seems "No warming for 17 years" is pretty solid;

Dr. Rajendra Pachauri, the railroad engineer who for some reason chairs the IPCC’s climate “science” panel, has been compelled to admit there has been no global warming for 17 years.

The Hadley Centre/CRU records show no warming for 18 years (v.3) or 19 years (v.4), and the RSS satellite dataset shows no warming for 23 years (h/t to Werner Brozek for determining these values).

IPCC Railroad engineer Pachauri acknowledges ‘No warming for 17 years’

AR5 is due out soon, it's likely to be a game changer.

3. The stand your ground law was mentioned several times throughout this case, although it doesn't seem to have directly caused the not guilty verdict. What I'm wondering is why that law didn't give Martin the right to stand his ground when Zimmerman pursued him?

It was probably more appropriate for Martin than Zimmerman, even if Martin was the banger wantabe I figure he was and actually intending to burgle every house on the street he was walking down, that still doesn't justify the use of deadly force against him.
