Anti-piracy bill meets Web-freedom backlash

I was reading this article on CNN: Anti-piracy bill meets Web-freedom backlash I’m not surprised that big tech companies aren’t supporting this bill. This would mean that they could be legally liable for users posting copyrighted material to their sites. What does that mean? They’d have to spend more money policing it, or come up with some magic thing that detects copyrighted material. It seems like the main focus of this...

They are actually using proceeds from paid vaccinations to fund vaccinations for children that cannot afford insurance coverage. Let me first say that I have no issue with parents wanting to let their child get chicken pox naturally. Yes there is a vaccine against it,...

MS risk increased in teens who work night shifts

MS risk increased in teens who work night shifts

MS risk increased in teens who work night shifts So new research confirms that people aren’t meant to work at night. I’m going to say this isn’t a big surprise. People were meant to get up when the sun was shining and go to bed when the sun set. Now that we have artificial light, people can do work in the dark, eliminating the need for natural sunlight for alot of jobs. But how is that affecting our health? This new study...
