Comment Pacific Inst for Research and Evaluation Again! (Score 1) 783

Same exact beltway bandit company who socially engineered a Colorado Sheriff into forcing motorists into providing DNA samples at a roadblock.

Suggestion: Maybe the Maryland state police, out of sympathy for their Texas and Colorado fooled by this corporation might consider setting up a mandatory roadblock on the edge of that company's parking lot so the US public learn the percentage of crack cocaine users on staff. I see more Probable Cause for blood testing that company's executives than the Texas or Colorado officers had for testing random citizens.


Comment security through obscurity. (Score 1) 197

The blueprints are at best a measure of those portions of the facility where they will allow low level clearance contractors, like vetted electricians.

Even the MCI headquarters in Ashburn has an off blueprints sub basement to intel use, so we should hardly expect less of a facility directly owned by a TLA.

That's not it. That's an older article without the state breakdowns. I've not found a legal open link to this paper (about publicly funded research...mutter) but the site in which it resides is http://www.ajpm-online.net/

The lead researcher is a Mathew M Zack, who is not listed in this older pdf.

On the upside, I did find that the CDC makes the data on which this new paper is based freely available here: http://apps.nccd.cdc.gov/HRQOL/
