Comment Translation... (Score 1) 737

Drooling Moron that believe everything and has no understanding about safety or even proper etiquette goes on a ego building adventure and finally gets what he needs from the police.

The dude is a mental patient that needs serious help and because of how unstable he is needs to have firearms removed from his possession. Sorry but if you are that much of a headcase, you do NOT need to own guns.. There are laws in place that already state this.

Comment Re:Mandate reporting when antibiotics are prescrib (Score 1) 72

Yes. But we need to be aware that man is not the only source of antibiotics. They naturally occur. We get a good lot of them from plants and bacteria, starting of course with penicilin which we got from mold, and which was already present on salted food and damp environments. What we did was to make antibiotics present in organisms other than their natural sources.

Comment Removable plastic back side and replacable battery (Score 1) 272

Samsung had stuck with the removable batteries of the Note 3 and Note 4 (which I own and love) this problem would not have occurred as the removable plastic back side would have allowed the battery to expand. This is also the same reason that I stopped buying the Note-series of Phones: No removable battery. So lose-lose :(

The Andromeda Strain was published in 1969.

The United States has some disease reporting, it started at least 75 years ago before the antibiotic bubble. This CDC Report summarizes the present state of disease reporting, in two pages. We need higher standards of reporting and legal penalties for failure to report.

This is part of the decomm process of Google+ I think, yes, it looks like they're spinning locations out of G+

They've made no secret about G+ being a failure, but there are a lot of communities that do use G+, a lot exclusively, so it's going to be interesting where they go and how they'll hold up.

Linking who you share your location with their habits. Alice went to McDonalds. Bob went to Burger King. Both like fast food, show Bob ads for McDonalds.

Very elementary example, but they are basically asking the users to confirm that when Alice and Bob are in the same (or a similar) place, it is not a coincidence.

Thank you, you nailed it far more succinctly than I.

What gets me are the "So? Every other company does it." as if that makes it right. These are the same people that check in on Facebook, leave location metadata on in photos, and run Google Maps in the background because it gives them the warm fuzzies thinking they're helping.
