You don't say...

The researchers noted that previous research did not find a clear link between weight and height, and its relation to various health markers, meaning that just because a person is of a particular weight and height doesn't necessarily mean their blood pressure will be in normal range or even an unhealthy range, for example.

About time the scientisys and physicians admit to same...
A new study came to the conclusion that body mass index (BMI) is a really crude and awful indicator of someone's health. Recently the Commission for Equal Opportunity in Employment in the United States proposed a rule that would grant employers the right to penalize certain employees with fees ...

"There's a special place in hell for women who don't help each other," former US Secretary of State Albright said when introducing the democratic presidential hopeful at a rally in Portsmouth, New Hampshire on Saturday."

Because we want to be just like the men about whom we have reason to complain? Because ... why exactly?

I think the women missed the point.

So apparently Clinton recruited Madeleine Albright and Gloria Steinem to the cause, and at a rally in New Hampshire, Albright suggested that "there's a special place in hell" for young women who don't support Clinton. Which is terrible. But if that's not bad enough, Steinem actually slut-shamed millennial women, suggesting that the only reason they would support Bernie Sanders -- whom she called "an honorary woman" in 1996 -- is so that they can get boys.

If one of the male Republican candidates had said that, I can't imagine the rage that would have filled my stream, but that's beside the point. Clinton is supposed to be this super-adept politician, the clear capable choice, but then to address a stunning gap among young women voters, she turns to a pair of octogenarians??

Even if they hadn't BOTH stuck their feet in their mouths, what exactly were they supposed to do for her? As it stands, the Clinton campaign basically just picked a fight with young women everywhere.

As if it wasn't bad enough that the parties seem to say the other side is stupid, isn't logical, civil discussion regarding politics off the table when adult, political reporters and media report one politician owned another?
For Christie, it was a fight for survival. And it may just have worked.

Federal law prohibits individuals from possessing firearms if they have been convicted of a crime of violence against a family member that lives or lived in the house-even a simple asssult qualifies.

My issue with this is some state laws only require an unwanted physical touch to qualify for a DVPO-even if no "violence" was present. My state's law can also let the court look at an individual's subjective fear and altered lifestyle due to said fear to justify issuing a DVPO.

I can't tell you how many famy law cases involving child custody involve a DVPO as a method of playing chess with the opposing party using the kids as chess pieces. Horrible practice, but, as put into law and practice, 90% of my client base knows it works-about half ask for it. Yes, I refuse unless there is actual violence-the clients are welcone to get an attorney who will enjoy the fight... I refuse to put children through that process as a tool in a custody case.

Yes, a DVPO should be available. No question. I'd just prefer there be a method to protect oneself if the allegation is, really, of no concern-like the man who tossed a peach at his wife. She got upset and ...
IOWA CITY, Iowa -- More than a dozen states have strengthened laws over the past two years to keep firearms out of the hands of domestic abusers, a rare area of consensus in the nation's highly p

So much for Verizon's fast LTE speeds...
If you want fast 4G, you should live in Singapore, New Zealand or Hungary. But perhaps most importantly, you should definitely not live in the US.

Whether or not there is any discussion, the Refs are on something... maybe a take?

It was a catch.
All season long, NFL players, coaches, officials, media and fans have wondered what constitutes a catch. So it’s only fitting that the biggest play in the early part of Super Bowl 50 would center on what constitutes a pass. When Panthers quarterback Cam Newton hit Jerricho Cotchery with a perfect pass, Cotchery initially bobbled it,…

While rooting an Android device does disable Google Pay, at least it doesn't brick your phone. 😆

Good for a smile-or snort...
Augmented reality artist Marty Cooper is back with his always fun Aug(de)mented Reality series that splices imaginative little drawings of cute monsters into real life. They’re always so clever and up to no good, popping out of places you’d least expect them to and doing things with so much pizazz that you’d wish they were almost real (not really but almost!).
