Comment Might want to read the fine print... (Score 5, Informative) 166

From the study: "The radiological exposure to people (beyond the first seven days) and its resulting short and long-term health impacts are not assessed in this study."
In other words, the flow of radionuclides through the environment, and expected specific dispersal and concentration pathways resulting in human exposure and the resulting cancers risks were not studied.

Not to mention other cross-level fallacies. See for example: Diez-Roux, A. V. (1998). Bringing context back into epidemiology: variables and fallacies in multilevel analysis. American Journal of Public Health, 88(2):216--222.

The upshot: Even if a causal relationship corresponds to the study's findings, causes of state-level rates of test achievement are fundamentally different things than causes of student-level rates of test achievement.

My question was: given that the researchers identified ways to uninstall/trigger wipes of the malware from one's phone, how does one go about doing so? "Don't jailbreak an iphone." is not an adequate answer to that question.

"I truly think and feel OK cupid is wrong for forcing their agenda those whom do not necessarily agree." Do you mean like Prop 8 supporters forcing their lifestyle choices on same sex couples desiring to marry? Cause, like: it is very difficult to understand how you can mean what you wrote without blatant glaring, bigoted hypocrisy.
