The huge dose of HFCS in your drink is teasing you.
Fructose not only results in a lower level of satiety, it also stimulates the reward system in the brain to a lesser degree than glucose. This may cause excessive consumption accompanied by effects that are a risk to health, report researchers. Various diseases have been attributed to industrial fructose in sugary drinks and ready meals.

Thank you, fellow Americans, patriots, for stepping up. You're all like the #ChicagoBlackHawks and you win again, because of the unstoppable onslaught!
 
This Is Your Victory: Fast Track for a Bad Trade Deal Is Derailed

The “allegedly unstoppable momentum” of the pro-fast-track forces just hit the immovable object called transpartisan grassroots democracy.

UPDATE: Re-entry of the Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) spacecraft into Earth’s atmosphere is predicted at Monday, June 15 at 11:50 p.m. EDT. Due to natural variations in the near-Earth environment, a precise time and location of where spacecraft will reenter cannot be forecast. Details: http://go.nasa.gov/1L850bQ

Science up!
Glaucoma, pain, nausea, loss of appetite, epilepsy and multiple sclerosis; the list of ailments that medical marijuana shows promise in treating seems to be steadily growing. But what about the disease most people seem to be interested in, cancer? Despite an abundance of anecdotal evidence supporting its use, clinical trials are virtually non-existent.

Americans would appear to agree with Congress’ latest efforts to limit the scope of its anti-terrorism efforts, with more than six in 10 saying that the federal government should take steps to prevent terrorism but not violate civil liberties, according to a Gallup poll released Wednesday. Among all Americans surveyed, 65 percent prioritized...

Add Wagner-Fischer "edit distance" algorithm to your homework list!
 
40 years ago, the Wagner-Fischer algorithm for calculating how similar two genomes are -- known as the "edit distance" -- was invented, but ever since, computer scientists have been looking for a more efficient algorithm. Now, it's been proven that a more efficient algorithm doesn't exist... well, almost. What they actually proved is that if it's possible to solve the edit-distance problem in less-than-quadratic time, then it's possible to solve an NP-complete problem in less-than-exponential time. But most mathematicians don't think NP-complete problems can be done in less-than-exponential time.
Proof that a 40-year-old algorithm is the best possible will come as a relief to computer scientists.

Maybe we could ask +Hillary Clinton For President 2016  to acknowledge that Bill ****ed up signing NAFTA, and that she should own up and promise to fix it.

Ted hubris
 
I was briefly a TED Fellow and "let go" rather quickly too. They started out saying they wanted to buy a few thousand Sita Sings the Blues DVDs for attendees, then said no, you should donate them; when I said I couldn't afford to, they said, OK, make us a video; when I said they could use anything of mine for free, they said, no, EDIT US A CUSTOM VIDEO; when I explained I was ill, coughing my lungs out, that I had no staff or money to do this but they could use anything of mine they wanted, they said "sorry it didn't work out." I'm glad this guy talked about how exploitative they are.

Hey.. this is pretty similar to the misadventure in Prohibition.
 
#WhoCouldHaveForeseen "Bloomberg News reports something that was easily predictable, that as more and more states legalize marijuana either for medical or recreational uses, the amount of pot crossing the border is decreasing, along with the influence, wealth and violence of the cartels that control it."

It's long past time to end the stupid fake "war" on drugs.

There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that "my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge." - Isaac Asimov, Newsweek (21 January 1980)
