Working with a legacy codebase is like embarking on an archaeological expedition to a foreign land: you never know what ancient artifacts you're going to uncover.

Wow.  This is crazy.

Sure, there's a minor "trick" to it.  But doesn't anyone know how to do math these days?!?!?
 
for (int i = 0; i < 100; i++) { print(100 - i ); } - 82% of programmers couldn't do that on the first try.

Theists will happily say something about god helping people two thousand years ago but nothing about his unwillingness to help people now.

This is very interesting.
 
Researchers have cracked a code that governs infections by a major group of viruses including the common cold and polio.

Until now, scientists had not noticed the code, which had been hidden in plain sight in the sequence of the ribonucleic acid (RNA) that makes up this type of viral genome.

I have recommended AA.  It has a poor success rate, but it has worked for some people.  I find the potential for harm disturbing.
 
why 12 steps don,t work
The approach made popular by Alcoholics Anonymous doesn't work for most people, according to psychiatrist Lance Dodes. In fact, he says, the steps can actually be harmful to the majority of addicts.

The company is rebranding Google+ into two distinct products: Google Photos, for all your pictures, and Google Streams, for your Facebook-esque updates.

We need to bring back the concept of a "civic obligation."  Sometimes what you do for others is more important than your own personal convenience.
 
The Dangers of Vaccine Denial

IN a few backward parts of the world, extremists resist universal childhood vaccinations. The Taliban in tribal areas of Pakistan. Boko Haram militants in Northern Nigeria.

Oh, yes, one more: Some politicians in the United States.

Senator Rand Paul — a doctor! — told CNBC that he had delayed his own children’s immunizations and cited “many tragic cases of walking, talking, normal children who wound up with profound mental disorders after vaccines.”

After an uproar, Paul walked back his remarks and tweeted a photo of himself getting a Hepatitis A vaccination. After that irresponsible scaremongering, I’d say he deserves to get shots daily for a decade. With really long needles.

Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey weighed in as well, suggesting that vaccinations are partly a matter of family choice — before later seeming to retreat as well. Paul and Christie are Republicans, but public health illiteracy is bipartisan: Vaccination rates are particularly low in some liberal Democratic enclaves in California.

Getting vaccinated is not a “personal choice.” It’s a public health duty and civic obligation.

NOT a public laundry. Is usable by residents only. I spoke to security at the front desk and the building manager. Laundryland supplies the clothes washing machines at this address, but the laundry facility is NOT accessible to the public.

Should be listed as a dry cleaning service, not a laundromat. My review is that listing them as a laundromat is misleading. I have not had the pleasure of doing business with them with their dry cleaning services, so I assume that their service is at least "OK."

This laundromat is PRIVATE. It is NOT open to the public. It is in a secure area, usable only by students enrolled in the university. All others are turned away by the building security guards. (I can't comment on the service it provides to students. I assume it's "OK" for them.)
