Seems like parents should at least have the option of getting the whole-cell vaccine for their kids.

True. I'd prefer it to be a combination, but that's just based on my opinion of humanity. Nonetheless, I hope this kind of data is used to further the need for vaccination, and not be skewed as evidence that vaccines aren't effective.

Episcopal Church installed the homeless Jesus statue on its property in the middle of an upscale neighborhood filled with well-kept townhomes. Jesus is huddled under a blanket with his face and hands obscured; only the crucifixion wounds on his uncovered feet give him away.

"One woman from the neighborhood actually called police the first time she drove by," says David Boraks, editor of DavidsonNews.net. "She thought it was an actual homeless person."

That's right. Somebody called the cops on Jesus.

I would only listen if they already had what I wanted - a large, growing, healthy portfolio that would allow me to financially retire.  If they don't have it, how can they steer you correctly?

We can't prevent all hacks. So why not take a resilience approach and focus on minimizing damage to the user if their data is stolen? What would this look like?

Some systems that do this are already in place. I had my debit card number stolen (twice!) several years ago, but dealing with it was nothing more than annoyance.

I just finished Fagles' translation of the Odyssey and loved it. In his rendering, it's just a really fun read! I'll have to seek out his other translations. It's too bad that he's dead.

Yeah, why should science and scientists suffer because politicians and warlords et al. can't play nice.

Story
Introduction
If you can say my last name, you've found the right Jane. If you can't, you might have found the right Jane anyway.

I love ecology, networks, geography, and anything that makes me see the world a little differently. I have been described as being "more interesting than an attack goose".

I'm happy when a post inspires active discussion. Please note, however, that non-standard definitions of standard words tend to impede communication. If you insist on such definitions, I will start a new post where you can discuss them to your heart's content and leave the original post to more substantive conversation.
