So at first I felt like the kid was overreacting. Parents (or those in loco parentis, which I'll get to in a moment) have a legitimate need-to-know when it comes to what's going on in their kids' lives.
However, according to the article, this kid's mom doesn't have custody. The grandparents do, and so this doesn't seem to be due to divorce or other "ordinary" situations that would cause a parent to lose custody of their own kids. In other words, something is seriously messed up here, and so while the fact that this is a mother/son thing is good for grabbing ratings, it's not really all that relevant to the matter at hand.
Moral of the story: RTFA.
>>>disk space and upload speed limitations have prevented me from achieving any >1.0 ratios
I counteract that by setting my download speed == upload speed (i.e. 15 KB/s DL). It helps keep my overall ratio very close to 1.0 since I'm only downloading as fast as I share.
It takes some real intellectual dishonesty to mention anything from a study without talking about the conclusion.
From the research reviewed, a recommendation cannot be made for changing practice. However, it appears that hypothermia may have benefits for patients with severe traumatic brain injury, specifically those with a [Glasgow Coma Scale] of 5 to 8. It also appears that there is no benefit to hypothermia for those patients with low [intracranial expansion] From the research reviewed, it can be recommended that hypothermia be initiated as soon as possible after injury and that patients who are cooled for at least 48 hr tend to have better outcomes. If hypothermia is employed as a treatment option, careful attention to side effects is crucial for improved patient outcome. Time, temperature, and methodology are all variables that must be considered if hypothermia is employed for patients with traumatic brain injury.
Seeing as how I read the whole thing, the analysis can best be summarized as "It works, with caveats. The caveats are too big for us to make a definitive recommendation. More study required."
