Some thoughts I had to share.
I had a day off this weekend from shooting Supernatural, and I was walking around downtown Vancouver on Saturday, sampling all the artisan coffee I could get my throat around. At one point I saw a pair of guys walking towards me wearing gamer shirts. Black short-sleeved, one Halo and one Call of Duty.  Now in my life up until this point, that kind of outfit has meant one thing: Potential comrades. I love games, I love gaming. If it’s Friday nig...

Snake oil? Check out the levels of scientific evidence for various health supplements (Updated for 2014)

This image is a “balloon race”. The higher a bubble, the greater the evidence for its effectiveness. But the supplements are only effective for the conditions listed inside the bubble.

You might also see multiple bubbles for certain supps. These is because some supps affect a range of conditions, but the evidence quality varies from condition to condition. For example, there’s strong evidence that Green Tea is good for cholesterol levels. But evidence for its anti-cancer effects is conflicting. In these cases, we give a supp another bubble.

Today there is a country that has been created just for the purpose of making sure there is somewhere where my family and I can be sure that we will not be discriminated against, where we will be safe from bigotry.
And I cannot go there.
Because I cannot support the tactics being employed to secure that safety. I cannot let it be in my name and that of my children.

Please, help me to change the reality in Israel and Palestine by sharing this link as far and wide as you can.

Similarly I see a lot of armchair theorists in these comments espousing their opinions about matters of scientifically determinable facts from medical conditions to public policy.

Do none of you realise the staggering amount of knowledge and experience (decades worth!) that is actually necessary for your opinions to have any value to either yourselves or the world around you?!

"Oh but I have the right to my...." Yes yes, of course you do but for pity's sake have some concept of how worthless they are! Unless you've been involved in the education of and research into the field in question for at least a decade your opinion (and mine while we're at it) is quite literally not worth the paper I just wiped my arse with. In Essenes you're no better than a bloody journalist toff with an overinflated sense of the worth of his own opinion.

Be better ppl. Go out and work toward having the knowledge in some subject to make your opinion matter and stop debating policy or reality on you tube!

Why did no one simply ask this dickhead what qualifications he has that make him qualified to assert an alternate theory of drug addiction?!

Regardless of whether the AMA is right or wrong you can rest assured that if highly educated, intelligent and knowledgable of the facts medical researchers and practitioners are failing to get the right answer there is categorically no chance of a journalist succeeding where they have failed. It is simply preposterous to even entertain the idea seriously.

Story
Tagline
Co-Founder & Lead Designer @ Grand Design Technologies Pty Ltd
Introduction
I'm the co-founder, lead app designer and one of the implementors at Grand Design Technologies Pty Ltd.

We build apps for mobile platforms (currently focused on iOS) that make life easier for the general public. We identify needs that are not being fulfilled by the current offerings in the market and endeavour to fill those needs with apps that make that fulfilment as easy, powerful and enjoyable as possible. We take the tasks people dread or find daunting and turn them into an enriching part of their lives.

More generally as a software developer I have a particular interest in the RESTful design and implementation of distributed applications as well as mobile application design and development on the iPhone & iPad platforms.

I love movies, tv shows and books particularly of the sc-fi and fantasy genre.

I also enjoy long walks in the rain followed by long days and nights in bed with chicken soup, a box of tissues, some vicks vapour rub and a really cranking fever!
