scary
so they caught this one
 
What if a research study is not really aimed at producing genuine scientific knowledge at all? The documents emerging in litigation suggest that pharmaceutical companies are designing, analyzing, and publishing trials primarily as a way of positioning their drugs in the marketplace. This raises a question unconsidered in any current code of research ethics. How much risk to human subjects is justified in a study whose principal aim is to "generate commercially attractive messages"?

A blistering new government report cites "serious ethical issues" and vindicates a Mother Jones investigation.

now that they have gutted unions - they're coming for the rest of what they won for you ... say goodbye to overtime pay - weekends - child labor laws - workman's comp - OSHA ... welcome to sweat shops and slave labor America - you voted for it
America's biggest employers want to pick and choose the benefits they give their injured workers.

Don't worry about anything The big wigs are worried about their own ass and believe it or not we just happen to be in the middle of everything because the criminals running the country are going to get their asses cleared out once and for all, and the military may very well not be involved.

"Dear Valued Patrons. Due to my sincerely held religious beliefs, and in light of the RFRA, I will no longer be doing business with the following persons; nor permitting them in my establishment. I am sorry for the inconvenience.  It's nothing personal, 'love the sinner but hate the sin,' and all, but I simply can't serve anyone who would blatantly disregard God's sacred law in such a fashion."

Whoever could have guessed...
 
So the GOP got all moralistic and defunded Planned Parenthood in Indiana - even though only 3% of Planned Parenthood's services are abortions. So PP had to close 5 centers. Now they have a county with an HIV outbreak because there's nowhere in the county to get an HIV test.  For bonus unintended consequence points:  Most of the outbreak is related to shared needles by drug users.

Prediction:  we'll soon hear about other problems cropping up due to the lack of Planned Parenthood services in those counties.

Sunny day, sweeping the clouds away...That thing I could't talk about earlier.

Woot! I’ve been keeping of this partly under my hat because I was afraid of jinxing it, but just got word that it’s official. Many of you may remember, that I auditioned for a Sesame Street workshop last year. It was an amazing experience, but I figured…

Sewer backed-up Sunday on a holiday weekend. Wilber got here two hours sooner than they expected, and got it all cleared away quickly. Also $200 less than the last guy who worked on it.
