"People in the United States, a country in which painkillers are routinely overprescribed, now consume more than 84 percent of the entire worldwide supply of oxycodone and almost 100 percent of hydrocodone opioids. In Kentucky, to take just one example, about one in fourteen people is misusing prescription painkillers, and nearly 1,000 Kentucky residents are dying every year.

So it’s more than a little odd that CADCA and the other groups leading the fight against relaxing marijuana laws, including the Partnership for Drug-Free Kids (formerly the Partnership for a Drug-Free America), derive a significant portion of their budget from opioid manufacturers and other pharmaceutical companies."

I am sick of what media is doing in US. Western media has misguided its viewers time and again. In case of Syria issue, Crimea issue and now Gaza strip bombing. The statement made by US representatives show the clear bias. Unfortunate and irresponsible. I feel sorry for those who form opinion without knowing both side of the story.

Great example of the Friendship paradox at work in Quora. Worth the read, as it applies to a good many areas of life.

You may be innocent until proven guilty, but your stuff is theirs (the police's) unless you can prove innocence (and even then the court has to agree to hear your case).

This is amazing. How the hell is this constitutional?
This is corruption at its finest.
VideoLicense, registration—and your cash. A deputy for the Humboldt County’s Sheriff Office in rural Nevada has been accused of confiscating over $60,000 from drivers who were never charged with a crime.  These cash seizures are now the subject of two federal lawsuits and are the latest to spotlight a little-known police [...]

Pixar and Disney Animation president Ed Catmull has always had a reputation as a decent person, but newly revealed court documents show that he's been working against the interests of Pixar's employees for years, as well as trying to hurt other studios who didn't play by his rules.

CISPA has a new name. Let's be ready for when CISA appears.

Cheesy, but a good thought exercise for an otherwise frustrating and useless process many of us endure daily at work.
The following events occurred between ☹ and ☺.

"Carlos Flores Laboy, appointed the teen’s guardian ad litem in the case, said he thought it was just as illegal for the Manassas City police to create their own child pornography as to investigate the teen for it. “They’re using a statute that was designed to protect children from being exploited in a sexual manner,” Flores Laboy said, “to take a picture of this young man in a sexually explicit manner. The irony is incredible.”"

Indeed it is.
A 17-year-old is facing two felony charges for allegedly exchanging messages with his 15-year-old girlfriend.

About time we had less stupid in circulation.
The network will stop airing "debates" featuring members of the anti-science fringe

Nothing amazing if you've been to Simpatico or other great Greek restaurants, but still pretty reasonable compared to others in the area. Price is on the reasonable side for the portions, but could be improved. Staff was pleasant, and left me alone to enjoy the meal, which earns points in my book.

Great service, even better food. The price point might be higher for those more used to the food courts in the area, but for a cafe in Vancouver's business district, the price is very reasonable for the quality and amount received.

Friendly and helpful staff in a dirty, run down location. If the place didn't smell like a litter box, I'd be more inclined to use this location regularly, instead of as a last resort.

White Rose is normally an excellent place to go for dry cleaning. If you come in early enough and their workload isn't too high for the day, they'll often be able to get you in same day for a few dollars extra. It's a family operated location, and the staff is usually upbeat and very polite.

Excellent quality, great service. Given the bustle of the location, and the lack of attention to decor, the Golden Swan may lack appeal to Westerners, but for people willing to experiment, and experience more traditional styles of Chinese food, the staff is very accommodating. Price is only slightly above what one might expect to pay.

While the location has its deals and quality goods, the staff is a complete joke. Professionalism varies immensely depending on who you get, and when mistakes are made, they are dismissive, unapologetic, and entirely unresponsive to customer feedback. Your voice falls on deaf ears at Tip Top Tailors, so speak with your wallet instead, and go elsewhere.
