“Sitting Down All Day
We've been telling you for years: The more time you spend sitting each day, the greater your chances of dying an early death--regardless of how much you exercise. From heart disease to diabetes, sitting for long periods--in your car, at work, on the couch at home--is your ticket to an early grave. Whether you install a stand-up desk or you start standing during your bus or subway rides, stay on your feet to stave off death.”

"Without Snowden's disclosures, the world would not know the extent of the NSA's mass surveillance, and the debate about its legality and impact on ordinary people wouldn't be taking place. Yet, the government has chosen to prosecute him under the Espionage Act, regardless of the public's interest in the disclosures or any demonstrable harm to U.S. national security interests – an approach running counter to human rights laws."

"We are not a country of anarchists. We are not a country of pessimists and ideologues whose motto is, "I've got mine, the rest of you are on your own." We are not a country that tolerates dangerous drugs, unsafe meat, dirty air, or toxic mortgages.  

We are not that nation. We have never been that nation. And we never will be that nation.

The political minority in the House that condemns government and begged for this shutdown has its day. But like all the reckless and extremist factions that have come before it, its day will pass – and the government will get back to the work we have chosen to do together."  - http://elizabethwarren.com/

Yes, I am suggesting that you consider searching using a search engine other than the sponsor of this social page! I knew a bit about the filter bubble but interestingly enough, it wasn't until I tried shopping on Google and then Bing (Shop is gone - remember Scroogle?!? The ghost of past ventures seems to have scared himself into oblivion) that I returned to DuckDuckGo.com and started becoming convinced. Weird name but very convincing case against what I always considered to be a feature. And it's hackable (http://duckduckhack.com/)!

"let's say i have two folders named the same thing, and i want to merge their contents together, but not replace. if i try to merge these folders together in mac os X, it asks if i want to replace the entire contents , vs. windows, which will merge the contents of the folders, replacing duplicate files if they exist in the destination folder, but otherwise the contents of the destination folder remain unchanged. any way to make os X behave like windows in this particular case?"

I used to be more tepid in my advice about OS choices - OS X vs Windows (or my personal choice Linux running KDE) - what's the diffference? But this "feature" of the Finder tool has just pushed me over the edge: What kind of evil UI developers thought a user would want to replace non-overlapping sub-content rather than merge the contents?!?! That is the stupidest thing I have ever heard of! And now due to my lack of planning to protect myself from stupid OS behavior, I am left re-creating a week or more worth of work! Don't waste your money on a Mac unless you care more about the shiny box than what's inside of the box.

I agree that Finder has some issues. I've always looked for a replacement, though unfortunately it can't really be substituted for with an app, just like Windows Explorer can't really be replaced. As was mentioned in the thread, using the command line can solve many problems
