Saving for a later read
 
Not that this is surprising, but I'm glad they're releasing studies like this.

Where do atheists get their morals? Simple, the Golden Rule is astonishingly easy to follow. It does not require faith, or supernatural belief, or the idea that you must be good or you're punished for eternity. It's amazing how well it works, and it seems to make for better human beings and better generations of children. 
Gone are the days of the unyielding God-fearing mother as the archetype of good parenting, suggests a recent article from the Los Angeles Times. According to multiple reports, research has shown that secular upbringings may be healthier for children, who, according to a 2010 Duke University study,

So... Comcast has it in my area now and it's $300 a month, who the hell has that kind of money?
Comcast is only just dipping its toes into the gigabit internet waters, but it wants all its US customers to have the option within two to three years.

People really expect republicans to say something against their hero Reagan.

Hint Reagan ruined this country and led to the downfall of the middle class.

Outlawing and defunding Planned Parenthood will do absolutely nothing to abortion rates, in fact all it will do is harm women. Especially since most of Planned Parenthood services have nothing to do with abortion most have to do with health screenings and birth control.

When abortions were illegal they still happen notice it says most illegal are preformed by actual doctors.

I purposely tried to avoid any blogs or sites dedicated to one side and tried to base links on facts not opinions.

Never a doubt in my mind.
A review by a private research company says the secret recordings released by abortion opponents “do not present a complete or accurate record.”

While I wasn't a teacher very long (2 years) I know there is a huge problem with the education in Indiana. I had constant surprise evaluation, at least 1 a week, by someone with no more experience than myself. In Indiana the only person legally allowed to give formal evaluations are administrators; I had one, legally required to do two, done by an administrator each year, the rest were done by another teacher. This is how my raises and such were determined.

I along with other teachers had absolutely zero administrative support, for example I had a students throw water on me, basically tell me to fuck off, literally say fuck you, and call me an asshole the list here goes on. Each time I would write them up, the dean with literally send them back to my classroom during the same period which just reinforces this behavior and makes my job that much harder since I now have zero power in my own classroom.

My net pay roughly $25,000 a year, if I did enough extra work I was eligible for about $3,000 in bonuses, but that wasn't a guarantee and usually meant spending a lot of time and money to achieve the goals required for the bonus.

We had roughly 6 weeks of testing which meant I got 6 weeks less with students meaning I had to cut out things completely or not give them the time they deserved.

I worked 50+ hours a week and every Sunday. I had a required 2 week unpaid training to go over the stuff I had spent 4 years learning how to do.

Those are my main complaints, I could list many more, my main however would definitely be the money as it just isn't financially sound to be a teacher in Indiana. You spend upwards of $100,000 or more to make less than $30,000 a year with maybe a 2% raise, if you're lucky, each year.

You will never hear a teacher say they left because of the students, while some of mine were a pain, I still loved a majority of them and went out of my way to make sure they got the best education I could give them.
The problem is becoming so acute that some state lawmakers are seeking a legislative review of the issue.

So the real question is how much is apple paying this judge? This is the same judge that ruled in favor of apple against Samsung
A judge has ruled that a lawsuit over Apple's iMessage syncing problems won't reach class action status.

I had them install a furnace since they claimed mine was going bad, it was about 15 years old, so I believed them and had the unit replaced for $2,600. A couple months later I get a phone call saying they need to setup a "free" AC tuneup, I tell them I don't want the service, but they insist so I agree since it is supposedly free. The tech comes out and starts putting a thermometer into my ducts poking holes it in in the process, these never get patched. Five minutes later he claims my AC unit, which has been working perfectly up until this point, has a freon leak and will cost $1,200-3,700 to fix. This is more than a coincidence as AC units do not form leaks the day a tech happens to come out when they have been working perfectly before hand. Also informs me that I have to pay him $74 to come out, when I didn't ask for him to come out the company sent him to my home after I told them I didn't want them to come out. I have no actual proof, other than my father who has worked on HVAC equipment for 30+ years telling me these things don't just happen. I would recommend staying away from a company with shady practices like breaking customers equipment then claiming it is bad and trying to charge them thousands of dollars to fix what they broke.
