What about the tests?
This is crypto-currency, the hot new thing tests are for old fogeys who still use dollars. Get with the times, young programmers are Agile, they don't plan and test their work, they release early and often. They release the Minimum Viable Product (minimum piece of shit they can get away with for a moment), it's illegal now to even think about corner cases and make code robust.
I don't know about ZCash, but Bitcoin has an extensive regression test suite and test mode. And test-first development is a principle of agile, so I'm not sure why you concluded agile programmers don't test.
Further there are people that lump Libertarians in as Alt-Right (as in they're not establishment conservatives).
Yes, but we libertarians are usually pretty offended by it. And the truth is that the beliefs and focuses are very different.
Last year, the Commission ruled that Ireland must recover 13 billion euros in "illegal tax benefits" from Apple.
Ireland had to be forced to collect these taxes. They didn't want to do it.
The whole thing is weird.
So you just found out that the active ingredients in the product you are buying is not what the producer claims
No, I have known for two decades that homeopathy doesn't work, so I knew all along it wasn't the homeopathic ingredients they list that was doing the work.
I'm not aware of any alternative belladonna treatments. I didn't intend to sound like I was saying I'm not aware of any alternative treatments at all.
I don't expect to change your mind. Mostly I'm just venting because articles like this makes my blood boil
We all get less rational when we get like that.
Science is superior because it requires compelling evidence. Not anecdotal evidence. Compelling evidence.
Okay, the FDA needs to release their evidence.
The fundamental theory behind homeopathics lacks compelling evidence.
I know that, and I don't believe in homeopathy, so I'm not sure why you're saying it.
This isn't some conspiracy to keep big pharma rich.
And I never said anything of the sort. You seem to be assuming a lot of things.
How much belladonna is in the hyland product? It probably doesn't say on the box, but it seems like its enough to kill the kids, sometimes.
The FDA apparently knows and isn't telling.
You're not planning on having your kids vaccinated against communicable diseases, are you?
My kids are vaccinated.
Giving your kids a preparation containing an unknown quantity of belladonna ?
The FDA let them back on the market a few years ago when the problem with uneven levels of ingredients was supposedly fixed. So is the FDA admitting they flubbed up, here? Did Hyland's stop meeting the quality standards that got them back on the market? What has changed, exactly?
Homeopathic products are not medicine.
Oh, I see you didn't read my post!
Also, eight children smacks of religious nut to me. Keep it in your pants
I am a father of 8, and I have plenty of anecdotal evidence that Hyland's teething tablets are effective, and I want to continue to use them for my baby. From what I have read, the effective ingredient in them is probably the belladonna rather than the homeopathic ingredients, but I am not aware of any alternatives, and as near as I can tell the FDA refuses to actually release their data, which doesn't sound much like science to me. Maybe that has changed.
It's misleading to say that Hyland's won't recall their product - they quit selling in the US months ago thanks to the FDA's pressure. There was a flap several years ago where Hyland's was yanked off of the market because of alleged inconsistent levels of ingredients and that was supposed to have been corrected or the FDA would never have let them back on the market.
I'd like to know if the product is really a problem here when used as directed and what the current consistency of the belladonna levels in the product is, but the FDA doesn't seem to be bending over backwards to provide that information to me. Several times since I became a father, useful medications for children and especially for infants have been pulled off the market simply because of claims that parents are using wrong dosages, and frankly while I wish other parents were literate enough to care for their children, I don't care about that enough to torture my own children by denying them effective medication. If infant tylenol cold and flu hadn't been yanked off the market for these ridiculous reasons years ago, I might give the FDA some more credibility, here. As it is, I see them as people who will willingly take away medicine from my babies, which is a special level of depravity.
a release in 120 days is immediate (those days are to begin a transition to post-prision life, not punishment)
I am certain that there are many private citizens and organizations that are willing to help Chelsea Manning transition to private life outside of the prison system and can do so better and more humanely than the prison system can. I am sure many people would be willing to donate to such a cause. If a reputable private organization gathering funds for that cause emerges, I will contribute Bitcoin immediately to help out.
