"Researchers found people surveyed by phone who said their job involved direct patient care were just as likely to be overweight, avoid the dentist, get sunburned and not wear their seatbelt as those in other fields."

I would love to hear the libertarians' take on this.

Given how many states we've seen go from strong to totalitarian, I don't buy the premise at all.  Libertarians aren't for anarchy, they're not even for "weak" government, they're for limited government.  The line in the sand may vary somewhat depending on which libertarian you're talking to, but there is still a basic set of rights I think they'd agree to, largely based on property rights (including rights of the person that are prereqs to that, such as protections against assault, murder, other violent crimes).  They just don't agree with other so-called rights as being actual rights.  The word is bandied around so casually nowadays that it has lost all meaning, and should therefore also lose meaning legally.

The scene was unprecedented: seven runners walking off the track hand in hand, in quiet protest against their own governing body. The women had just run the 1,500-meter race at the U.S. indoor national championships on Feb. 23 in Albuquerque. The day before, the winner of the 3,000-meter race, Gabe Grunewald, had been disqualified by one of the most powerful men in track, Nike Oregon Project coach Alberto Salazar, for supposedly interfering with ...

Summary: The Supreme Court has long made surreptitious changes to its opinions without telling anyone. In response, a coder has created a tool that flags and publicizes those changes.

I very much like the sentiment that "Better is better than more."

That may be a good tattoo...

"Why I vaccinate my kids [Aetiology]" http://feedly.com/e/opNFPyNd

Sad.

That it has to be written.

The reason I vaccinate my kids (and kudos to the OP for being able to spell those diseases) is simple: upside > downside.  In this case, upside >>>>>> downside.

Which is why the annual flu shot is not among those vaccines.  The upside and downside weigh out fairly similarly.  With the flu changing drastically every year, herd immunity is so short term that I'm doubtful that there's much immunity to be had there anyway.  For otherwise-healthy kids and adults, it's not really that severe.

Everything else, polio and all those other ones I can't spell, except for maybe the chicken pox, even the smallest infection can be devastating.  (Pox's worst infections can be devastating.)  It's not uncommon for any of the rest of these diseases to kill or maim their victims.  Risk of disease (small) times expected outcome (really bad - killing or maiming) compared to risk of shot (high) times expected outcome (short term pain, soreness, tiredness, going away in a day, give or take, treatable with tylenol).  Yeah, that's a no-brainer.

Maybe "name" shouldn't be an identifying characteristic, just like phone numbers, email addresses, or addresses shouldn't be. They are additional characteristics on a unique identifier.

Criticisms of Barbie's unnatural proportions and (usually) vapid lifestyle are nothing new; believe it or not, it's been twenty years since Lisa Lionheart took on Malibu Stacey on The Simpsons. But there's never been a rival doll that's looked quite like this before.
