Well, I am not surprised when you google one word off a book title, that the first hit is the book.  Most of the other hits are scientific (BTW, I am a retired scientist believing in evolution). 

IMO, I really doubt Google will move this down in the results. If Santorum can't get it done, I doubt an evolutionist can.

But I don't fault you for trying.

Yet another peer reviewed article of a large sample of children showing no link between MMR vaccines and autism.

In this large sample of privately insured children with older siblings, receipt of the MMR vaccine was not associated with increased risk of ASD, regardless of whether older siblings had ASD. These findings indicate no harmful association between MMR vaccine receipt and ASD even among children already at higher risk for ASD.

#vaccines #autism
Importance Despite research showing no link between the measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine and autism spectrum disorders (ASD), beliefs that the vaccine causes autism persist, leading to lower vaccination levels. Parents who already have a child with ASD may be especially wary of vaccinations. Objective To report ...

Does this make anyone else unhappy?

TWiT operates on a different model. There's no subscription with TWiT. Well, you can follow them on YouTube.

TWiT is already on Apple TV for free. It's in the Podcast channel. You can't watch LIVE but all the programming is there for the choosing. If Apple TV offers us an app store option then we could get one of the many apps for watching LIVE and put it on our menu.

I also think Apple TV will eventually allow for localization. In that local broadcast affiliate stations will be able to offer a 'watching app' you could pick from and put on your menu. Like with the iPad right now.

For any subscription based network the revenue is locked in by the bundle/annual fee. If these network providers could be getting more cash for each subscriber through Apple TV than through other streaming services then the market shift could accelerate. If it was "a la carte" as such with individual video products bought like on iTunes, then we could find a whole new model for distribution of independent film. Right now I can buy most movies on iTunes at about what it might cost me to go down and see them in a crowd. It would be nice to have a "Sundance" channel where I could scroll through and buy or rent a viewing of a new film from their annual list (and back catalogue) thereby sending money directly to both the festival and the producer.

HUDSON, WI—Making engine noises with his mouth as he guided a model bulldozer toward a Hot Wheels racetrack play set, local 5-year-old Dylan Walde was reportedly unaware Wednesday just how many of his toys have been purchased to steer him away from one day adopting a homosexual lifestyle.
