Studies of how the human engine burns calories help to explain why physical activity does little to control weight—and how our species acquired some of its most distinctive traits. Learn more in the February 2017 issue: http://bit.ly/2iLhYHl

Notice all those graphs - more non-fat mass(muscle), higher calories. Ie, lift, and your calories output will go up. What in fact he shows, isn't that exercise "doesn't do it", but that walking and jogging doesn't do it. You need that high intensity, that muscle building weight session. And that is perfectly visable on his graphs, he just seems to miss it, probably because he don't lift, and thinks a good workout is jogging for 50 kms.

Graphene-infused Silly Putty can detect human heart rate and track the dainty steps of a small spider.
“G-putty” is so sensitive that it can track even the steps of a small spider

You're right. Trump and Putin used paid shills and bots.

Yes, voters should check. However, the bottom end of the intellectual scale voted for Trump. Emoters are mot the types to check facts and think for themselves.

If you get your news from social media, as most Americans do, you are exposed to a daily dose of hoaxes, rumors, conspiracy theories and misleading news.
Online recommendation systems that include differing views may be an answer, say hoax researchers

This is very interesting and important as you say +carey g. butler
I listened to a video by Truthy on OSoMe. (from S.A.) on bots which retweet for people, and how ISIS use thousands of fake account bots.
It is the new warzone; battle of the bots.

On the site The Conversation.   (from S.A.) at the bottom of an article on Surveillance http://theconversation.com/snoopers-charter-why-journalists-and-the-rest-of-us-should-be-afraid-69591 it states:-
"When the likes of Donald Trump and Boris Johnson  (M16 now) control the most powerful surveillance operation the world has seen, in a climate of growing intolerance, we must worry."

This is just what you mean about "those defending us from it" and what we were saying elsewhere about it being only an opinion that decides it as relevant.  The writer decides to influence by saying Trump and Johnson are to be worried about, with probably no evidence whatsoever.  He calls Johnson a buffoon (nothing but his own opinion) when the man is extremely intelligent and articulate, as well as having humour and wit.
And Scientific American is using this piece as its source!
Your point proven.

While science played only a bit part in this year’s dramatic, hard-fought campaign, many researchers expressed fear and disbelief as Trump defeated former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
Republicans sweep White House and U.S. Congress, with uncertain implications for research

+John Marc Thibault​ posted a comment which I may have I miss read.. my intentions are such that I believe science should be motivating factor in government policy. Science being the Act of acquiring facts testing and then having them peer reviewed in order to achieve an understanding based on facts that are testable and repeatable in the world in which we live.
