Like the iPhone before it, everyone was talking about the Apple Watch long before it was announced by the company themselves. Shortly after going on sale, shipping dates for new orders slipped to June or later, as early adopters rushed to part with their cash — but is it worth it? I've spent a week playing with…

In HD on my 4K monitor this is 4 men cross country skiing with ski poles.  I can't believe all the people that think these are 4 Bigfoots.

If you use Google Chrome as your browser, check out '100,000 Stars' -
a stunning interactive visualization of the stellar neighborhood. It shows the real location of over 100,000 nearby stars. Zooming in reveals information about 87 major named stars. Try it here: http://buff.ly/1h505IB

Sure, the idea of natural medicine sounds okay. But when medical doctors “prescribe” pseudoscientific remedies, it becomes dangerous.

Need to stop the anti-vaccine wackos like Jenny McCarthy from killing/maiming more kids.
 
With recent outbreaks of measles, pertussis, and even polio across the United States, I think it's time to revisit our laws about vaccination.

Refusing to vaccinate your children doesn't simply put them at risk: it puts at risk everyone who, for medical reasons -- extreme youth, old age, health, allergy -- can't be vaccinated, as well as everyone whose vaccinations have lost potency over time. Personal objections to vaccination, whether it be because of (unsubstantiated) fears of side effects or religious reasons, put everyone around you at risk of death or serious injury. This is a classic case where your right to swing your fists around ends at my nose: the individual liberty interest in allowing people to decide which medical procedures to undertake is outweighed by the safety and survival interest of those around you.

I believe that it is time to end all non-medical exemptions from critical vaccination requirements such as MMR, DTaP, and polio --  for epidemic diseases which kill and maim by the thousands when our immunity, as a population, is compromised. 

My preference would be to treat this as a criminal matter: to fail to do this amounts to reckless endangerment. (Public endangerment, that is, not simply endangerment of a minor) More important, however, is the prevention of harm from people who do this: in particular, individuals unvaccinated without medical reason should be barred from all public accommodations where their presence could put other lives at risk, including schools, parks, pools, and transit.

Such a barring would, of course, have a nearly-catastrophic effect on the life of anyone not living in a remote, rural area; it essentially would reduce a person to second-class citizenship. However, I believe that this is a reasonable accommodation of the public safety interest, as by definition it is something which the person can circumvent by simply not putting the general public in danger by their mere presence.

There are times when I'm willing to be fairly forgiving. When the rightness of a course of action is unclear, I'm generally in favor of letting said action be a matter of individual conscience. However, when an individual's actions put those around them at risk, this is exactly what we have laws for. You have no more personal right to expose others to deadly diseases than you do to fire a gun blindly into the street.
“The measles virus can cause inflammation in the brain that can appear immediately, or seven years out,” warned health officials who urged vaccination

The Buddha figured this out over 2500 years ago. Kinda late to the game.
At the meeting of the Society for Neuroscience in Washington, DC, there are 30,000 delegates. And one of them has changed the way the others look at desire. Amy Fleming meets Dr Kent Berridge

The theories of evolution and the Big Bang are real and God is not “a magician with a magic wand”, Pope Francis has declared.
