So tell me why our government insists on subsidising the same poluters that are killing us?
 
As a result of tireless efforts by supporters of regulating air quality, pollution is down. You can see from the graph how PM 2.5 is going down, that is the most deadly component of smog. Effects of particulate matter (generated by coal fired plants, cars, etc) on human health are much stronger as particles get below 2.5 microns and penetrate the lungs. Particles between 0.3 and 1 enter the lung air sacs, those between 1 and 2 microns enter the lung bronchi - and these particles can be HEAVY METALS (Arsenic, Mercury from Coal Fired Plants, etc). Coal and car smog kills millions of people each year ► http://goo.gl/jDj0hI and leads to lower IQ ► http://goo.gl/alNQIk and autism ► http://goo.gl/66nqwr, not just Alzheimer, asthma, lung cancer, heart disease. Also, http://www.news.cornell.edu/stories/2007/08/pollution-causes-40-percent-deaths-worldwide-study-finds explains that 40% of deaths are due to pollution. Smog kills billions earlier than their normal time. Coal fired plants generate most human emissions of mercury and arsenic in the air.

In 2011 only 3.5% of 15 year olds in the Los Angeles Metro area had significant lung deficits, compared to 8% of 15 year olds in 1998. This is a result of ever tightening air regulations in California, which benefit public health (air pollution was shown to cause autism, heart disease, asthma, lung cancer, etc). With 40% of US electric cars in California, if the electric car trend continues, California will have the cleanest air in the nation one day. Car smog gets into the lungs and lodges up there, effectively destroying the lungs and preventing lung growth in children.

Air Pollution and Alzheimer Disease explanation from University of Rochesterhttps://www.urmc.rochester.edu/labs/elder-lab/projects/air_pollution_and_alzheimers_disease

http://hsnewsbeat.uw.edu/story/study-shows-how-air-pollution-fosters-heart-disease is a Washington University study showing what has been known for decades: car pollution as 2.5 micron particulate matter leads to heart disease. For example if you look at city-data.com and type your city, then Ctrl F to find "PM2.5" you will see the 2013 levels of ParticulateMatter2.5 which are Mountain View 11.3 (Google headquarters), New York 9.03, San Francisco 10.2, Sacramento 9.85, Redding, CA 6.07, Miami (Florida) 6.55, Houston 12.3, Seattle 9.29, Washington DC 11.4, Boston 9.07, Pittsburgh 9.71, Chicago 10.8, 17.7 in Beverly Hills, 17.4 in Santa Monica, 15.9 in Gardena, Manhattan Beach 16.4, Torrance 15.5, San Diego 11.2, Carlsbad 10, Malibu 9.40, Santa Barbara 9.65, Los Angeles 18.9, San Luis Obispo 7.11, I.e. LA area has high values compared to Northern California, San Diego and most of the big US cities.

The US average is 9.4. Beijing often reaches 250 (sometimes even 1000, 100 times above US average) - 10 times the 25 World Health Organization limit for safety. The 2013 Beijing average was 90.

There is no better "driving" karma than driving an electric car, especially if you drive more than 300 miles a month. Or some kind of plug in hybrid at least, short distances electric, longer gas. If one cannot drive electric for whatever reason, solar panels or going vegan can offset more than an electric car driven a lot. Solar panels a lot more than going vegan, if a big system in a sunny area.


For a detailed explanation of tremendous service to humanity done when you install solar panels or buy your next car electric, see https://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/Svx8uZ8Hk7A. You not only save the world, but your money too, since electricity is much cheaper than gasoline. :)

A few German politicians started talking about banning oil cars.https://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/EPxdxyHkrtL

Norway already plans to ban oil cars in 2025, they just need to pass the bill in Parliament. More than 20% of new cars sold in Norway are electric these days, Norway having the most electric cars per capita in the world.https://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/DNpT9MaiVYj.

Austria is thinking about banning them in 2020https://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/i3h5LMojLi1.

Holland wants gasoline and diesel cars banned in 2025https://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/Svx8uZ8Hk7A.

A compact 40x zoom! Let wait for the Australian price but I like the specs. 
The Canon PowerShot SX720 IS comes with an all-new 40x, F3.3-6.9 zoom lens, achieving a 35mm-equivalent zoom range of 24-960mm. Backing up the lens is a 20.3MP 1/2.3" BSI CMOS sensor and DIGIC 6 imaging processor, and a textured grip and Wi-Fi with NFC round out the package. Click through for all the details. Read more

Sounds handy to know :-)
 
According to a study your poop may contains about 75% water. Well that means if you hold your poop longer then it may get dry, because more water will be consumed by your body through intestine. Chances are you may get into constipation. So drink more water and never hold your poop for longer.

For the last few weeks at least FBREADER has been unstable, frequently going back to the table of contents while reading.  It also used to but possibly fixed reopen books at the wrong location so now I'm placing bookmarks before I close the app.

At first I thought it may have been something wrong with the book but its been 3 or 4 books by now. 

Apart from helping me with these bugs it would be great if the highest page read could be recorded possibly as a bookmark so I could go back there.

The situation with USB-C cables shouldn't be allowed to continue, but in the mean time the easiest way to cover yourself as much as possible is to plug it into an inexpensive hub or similar before plugging it into your expensive laptop as its the supplier of the power which potentially dies.

Remember to check "https://usbccompliant.com/"!
 
Buyer beware.
Over the past year or so, one of the biggest tech stories have been about one of the smallest things: a USB plug. Specifically, the new USB Type-C plug and port, which promises to become the single thing that we can use to connect all our devices, from monitors to phones to computers to whatever we dream up next

Exactly right, avoid plastics if at all possible, I drink from stainless steel or glass as much as possible and never microwave food in plastic containers.  I'll survive a few minutes longer that you guys....
Public concerns over the potential harm of bisphenol A (BPA) – an industrial chemical used to strengthen plastic in things like water bottles and children's toys – has seen many manufacturers develop 'safer', BPA-free alternatives in recent years....

+grant6 brown7 I'm just taking sensible and trivial to implement precautions.

I'm amazed that anyone can be that surprised, out of the many chemicals they use in plastics you think they found BPA to be the only unsafe one? Thats amazing, anyway just a sample: http://www.breastcancerfund.org/clear-science/environmental-breast-cancer-links/plastics/?referrer=https://www.google.com.au/

This looks like 3 bugs to me but perhaps someone can provide a workaround or tell me how I might be making a mistake.

The dark grey time (underneath the real time) is getting annoying... If I keep tapping the watch until the minutes turn over then it will refresh and be good for a while.

Looks like a similar situation for the temperature.

This is on an LG G watch and in the past I had to turn off transitions between ambient and normal display as it would leave garbage all other the screen.

While I'm here the screen shows "Min 16 to Max 22" a lot of times the MIN=MAX which is not correct, what is going on? Also the watch face is supposed to be fully visible when the notification pops up, that is not the case below.

Thanks for any pointers.

Good lookin bloke :-)
Introduction
I'm interested in technology and have a basic homepage at "http://dennisbareis.com/" which includes a lot of my freeware including the very popular MAKEMSI & PPWIZARD tools.  I am a fan of automation (and consistency/reliability) and this is the basis of a lot of my tools.

I was a Microsoft Setup & Deployment MVP for 7 years (2004-2010) and also have a unappreciated 2 cent's worth blog where I tend to rant and rave :-)

I love Android phones and currently have a Samsung (Google) Galaxy Nexus, this is my 3rd android phone (after Motorola Milestone & HTC DESIRE HD), I wanted a nexus to get quick updates and so far I'm getting updates which I'd never got on my previous phones.

I'm trying to eat fairly healthy food and do more exercise hence the 3km workday cycle ride to and from the railway station.
Bragging rights
Microsoft had awarded me a Most Valuable Professional (MVP) award yearly from 2004 to 2010 (for Setup & Deployment). My MAKEMSI user group has 650+ users. My PPWIZARD group has 220+ members.
