What Events Lead A Man To Have Circuitry Implanted In Him - Regular readers of my posts may already know that I am the proud owner of an NFC implant, one of the questions I am asked the most is “What would lead you to want an NFC chip placing inside your hand” among the many other obvious questions. It is my intention to finally answer many of these questions here. Contents Why I did it (Editorial) What is NFC? So what are NFC implants? What can they be used for? How are they implanted? Why...

On the state of workers in the United States. It's not as good here for them as in much of the world.

The Associated Press is reporting that a maker of compounded drugs will begin selling Daraprim, whose price was famously jacked up to $750 per pill by one of history’s greatest assholes, for the whopping price of $0.99 per pill.

You and a friend begin to play a game of Monopoly.

Your friend gets to play using the normal rules. He starts the game with $1,500 in cash, and, every time he passes "Go," he gets $200. He uses two dice to move around the board.

You, however, only get $300 at the start of the game, and you get just $50 every time you pass "Go." You use one die to move around the board.

The two of you play for an hour or so. At that point, your friend has accumulated many properties, built several houses, and has over a thousand in cash. 

You, however, are not doing so well. You have no houses, just two properties (and one is mortgaged to pay for last turn's rent), and your cash is $60.

You then proclaim that the game isn't fair. Your friend agrees. The two of you both start getting $200 every time you pass "Go" and you both use two dice to move around the board.

How long do you think it will take you to even up the game? Or will your friend continue to benefit from the lead he built based on the advantages he had for so long?

That, in a greatly simplified nutshell, is the economics of systemic inequality.

And whether that inequality is based on race or gender or sexuality or religion or some other factor, the effects of long-term, inherited disadvantages perpetuated over generations cannot suddenly be erased simply by giving everyone access to the same rules.

Staff really know their coffee. Flavors are subtle and not overpowering, especially the peppermint essence which makes a wonderful "pepperminted" mocha.

A beautiful new store with a rooftop bar and underground parking. Plus, the largest dessert case of any New Seasons! (according to the employee behind the counter)

New Seasons as a whole is an excellent store to buy organic, natural, and local groceries. It is locally owned and cheaper than it's major competitor, Whole Foods. This Hawthorne store is on the small size (by design). The aisles are tight and they don't have everything that the larger stores have, but it's rare that I don't find everything that I need. And don't forget, they have parking on the roof. (I missed that on my first visit.)
