Yes! An excellent summary of all my suspicions, hesitations, and misgivings about the over use of OOP. Objects are sometimes useful, but rarely as often as people have used them in the last two decades. Just another evangelized religion! Focus on the problem not the solution. Thankyou #brianwill

"Cholesterol is not the major culprit in heart disease or any disease. If it becomes oxidized it can irritate/inflame tissues in which it is lodged in, such as the endothelium (lining of the arteries). This would be one of numerous causes of chronic inflammation that can injure the lining of arteries. However, many good fats are easily oxidized such as omega-3 fatty acids, but it does not mean that you should avoid it at all costs.

Common sense would indicate that we should avoid the oxidation (rancidity) of cholesterol and fatty acids and not get rid of important life-giving molecules. Using the same conventional medical thinking that is being used for cholesterol would lead one to believe that doctors should reduce the risk of Alzheimer's disease by taking out everybody's brain.

In fact, cholesterol is being transported to tissues as part of an inflammatory response that is there to repair damage.

The fixation on cholesterol as a major cause of heart disease defies the last 15 years of science and deflects from real causes such as the damage (via glycation) that sugars such as glucose and fructose inflict on tissues, including the lining of arteries, causing chronic inflammation and resultant plaque."

I know! I had a professor tell my class that cholesterol was not the culprit way back in 1986, and people still aren't paying attention, even when NO study has proven that being on a statin to lower cholesterol has actually lowered the risk of heart attack etc. Mind numbing!!!

Looks like mainstream U.S. news media has actually fallen in line with Arthur Sylvester's point of view ...
Arthur Sylvester, the Pentagon’s PR chief, told Safer the facts of life in 1966 in Vietnam.

Apparently it's open season on drones :)
With the rise of consumer drones, everyone from the US military to Border Patrol are stocking up on anti-drone guns. And the Navy Times has a new video of the most sci-fi looking drone gun: Battelle’s DroneDefender. While they’re not available yet commercially, they’re definitely the future of shooting down your neighbor’s pesky drone.
