Re: UC TV: The skinny on fat (Part 1)

This was good. I think a lot of people assume that skinny means healthy and it isn't the case at all. The thin man’s diabetes His father lost his leg to type 2 diabetes, but Jeff O’Connell – a young, slim health journalist – never thought the disease could affect him… The first thing I saw was a pro...

Re: Utah (governor) did something correct

Even more frightening is that a lot of this legislation is being written by a shadowy group called ALEC which had a secret donor list of major corporations and right-wing republicans. The group was writing "model" legislation and legislators were passing it off as things their constituents were dema...

Re: If this is accurate....

We need to cut military spending. We have all this military power and when we're not at war, it's just begs us to get into a war. And war is so painless for 99% of us, all we do is have everyone else fight it and we pass the cost off onto our children/grandchildren. Baron Munchausen: What's this? Vu...

Re: Belief in Science: A partisan issue?

Conservatives use low-effort thinking: Think less and become more conservative . Which is kind of obvious when you think that fear seems to be the chief motivator for (many? most?) conservatives. The less time or mental effort a person puts into thinking about an issue, the more likely they are to e...

Re: Climate-Change-Denier-Gate?

Actually, I think weather forecasters have gotten pretty accurate over the last couple of decades. I remember the weather *never* matching up with what they said it would do, then lately I've noticed it almost always does. For what little weather we actually have where I live. :lol:

Re: Utah (governor) did something correct

That is surprising, especially with how intrusive Republican's have gotten this year into things like women's health: Reproduction, contraceptive use and so on. They're trying to pass a law in VA to require women get an intrusive, vaginal ultrasound before they can have an abortion. What happened to...
