"Many have argued that tango is not merely a dance form, but the embodiment and enactment of a relationship between two people; it has taken a while for the science to catch up with the art, but there is now a scientific framework within which this romantic notion can thrive—and become more profoundly understood."
Surprising results show the fluidity of the "body schema"

"Every mammal on this planet instinctively develops a natural equilibrium with the surrounding environment, but you humans do not. You move to an area and you multiply .... and multiply until every natural resource is consumed. And the only way you can survive is to move to another area .... There is another organism on this planet that follows the same pattern, do you know what it is?"


-- Agent Smith, The Matrix




The defining moment of civilization ... what will we choose?

..... what Hillary Clinton said the day before while delivering a foreign policy address at the Brookings Institution:

We’re going to have to have more support from our friends in the technology world to deny online space. Just as we have to destroy [ISIS’s] would-be caliphate, we have to deny them online space. And this is complicated. You’re going to hear all of the usual complaints, you know, freedom of speech, et cetera.But if we truly are in a war against terrorism...

Ya. The usual complaints ... caused by the usual amendments. And this woman wants to be president?


Citing San Bernardino, President Obama and Hillary Clinton are upping pressure on social media sites and tech companies that provide end-to-end encryption.

...chillingly similar to what Trump called for today, when he invoked Bill Gates. Hilz is more eloquent, for sure, but same message <sigh>

The Affordable Healthcare Act is a disaster.

It is unsustainable.  It will crumble under its own weight.  Why?  Because it is all focused on the money instead of on everyone's health.

Sure, in order for any kind of social program to work there must be as much coming into the system as going out.  Period.  That's math.  It is irrefutable.  The #aca  takes from the healthy and gives to the unhealthy, but it does nothing to ensure the healthy remain healthy.   #Humana  has taken thousands of dollars from me over the last year and given me absolutely nothing.  They won't even make it easier to find practitioners within their own network!  I want to take an annual physical and get blood work done to asses my health but they will not cover a single dime and have multiple excuses as to why.  After hours with them on the phone they basically tell me "you are on your own, and yes we are taking your money anyway".

This is government sponsored extortion - nothing less.  If the ACA is not amended to encourage health in at least some way, it is doomed.

... "It was French poet Charles Baudelaire who said “the finest trick of the devil is to persuade you that he does not exist." The finest trick of the modern fascist? The same. Nothing is ever fascist. It’s just “very conservative.” And this week’s very conservative, is next weeks middle of the road. After all, what politician could be taken seriously who didn’t accept the completely middle of the road position that we should value the safety of the populace over the preservation of rights?" ...

"While funding continued to be available, such a large negative basis indicates potential market dislocations. And this may call into question how smoothly US dollar funding conditions will adjust in the event of an increase in US onshore interest rates. Similar pricing anomalies have also emerged in interest rate swap markets recently, raising related concerns."
