Empire rebuilding by the organized crime ring that is the Russian political system.
Russia's Prosecutor General is reviewing the legality of the independence of the three Baltic countries from the Soviet Union, a spokesman said Tuesday. The move drew a furious reaction from Lithuania's President Dalia Grybauskaite, who said, "No one has the right to threaten" our independence. Two lawmakers from the majority United Russia party argued in their appeal to prosecutors that decisions by the State Council of the Soviet Union, which g...

Too true I'm not sure where this started in men's soccer but it's really a blight on the sport.

Easily, it's just odd. You really only see it in soccer and a little less in basketball.

"The fearsome teeth of the saber-toothed cat Smilodon fatalis fully emerged at a later age than those of modern big cats, but grew at a rate about double that of their living relatives. The findings, for the first time, provide specific ages for developmental dental events in Smilodon. The eruption rate of the cat's permanent upper canines was a speedy six millimeters per month, but the teeth weren't fully developed until three years of age".

The proper response to the scary developments in the republican party's stance on decisions they disagree with,

""I think the idea that you go about amending the constitution every time you lose a court battle is a dangerous precedent for anyone to engage in, but in particular for the state's highest attorney to do so," Kiesel said. "And the calls for impeachment represent a fundamental misunderstanding of how an independent judiciary functions within our system of democratic government.""
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — A Ten Commandments monument on the Oklahoma Capitol grounds is a religious symbol and must be removed because it violates the state's constitutional ban on using public property to benefit a religion, the Oklahoma Supreme Court ruled Tuesday.

Diagnostics are where we continue to see great advances.
 
Human radiologists missed 7% of cancers in a study, a deep learning algorithm missed 0%
Enlitic, a new medical technology company, is using computers that have powerful learning skills to diagnose patients much more accurately.

Introduction
  • Sometimes where you come from, such as a small WV farm, makes you all the more interesting. 

  • I try to remember that I am always at least partially wrong, that keeps me humble-ish.

  • I talk about science, technology, and politics. Typically I will not shy away from areas that folks avoid as the discussion can have value. I have studied finance and management information systems. I apply systems engineering, which I've also studied. I have worked in the government. I now am implementing projects. I will not let you off the hook for misinformation and most often call you out for bias (we all have them, just own up!).
  • I have stopped posting to individual circles for most posts. This is because G+ penalizes non-public posts.
