“The morning after pill prevents fertilization; it does not abort. The reason is it takes a week for sperm to swim up and little for the egg to drop down. So the egg stays in place for most of the sperms' journey. If it is kept in place by a dose of hormones, it will not be at the meeting place of sperm and egg to be fertilized a week later.

How can a person's religious feelings decide how medicine works?”

sidnee on Nov 26, 2013 at 15:05:46

“No one's religious feelings should decide anything. But that's not how things are here--we are in a time of a push for a theocracy in this country. I'm a christian myself, but I have never, nor will I ever, believe that my personal religious beliefs trump anyone's personal liberties. This stuff irritates me to no end. This is precisely why we need single payer.”

“The government subsidizes high fructose corn syrup, a "new" product which is very cheap due to the government subsidizes. As a consequence most commercial food is laced with the stuff. This is a major cause of obesity now and a plethora of other diseases. Europe doesn't permit the stuff and hasn't had the weight gains in this country.
Besides, it tastes weird. For a long time I didn't understand why sodas taste different. I never drink them since the HFCS went into products. (Not to be confused with Karo, with is made from a different process.)”

“New York's soaring crime rate in the 90s was like soaring crime rates everywhere: babies born in the late 70s were dosed with lead from leaded gasoline. Crime rates are continuing to drop to a fraction of what they were at peak. (see Mother Jones' articles on lead, for instance).”

“I read that article, and others, supporting this thesis. Very interesting if further research turns out to prove it to be true. The evidence in the Mother Jones article was convincing.”

jessicadevyn on Nov 5, 2013 at 12:48:08

“Indeed. Also the legalization of abortion has also helped crime drop nationally. Smart phones, video games and Internetp0rn also serve as a diversion for young males and keeps them inside their homes instead of out on the street doing crime. And cocaine use has dropped precipitously nationally.”

“the bumper crop of lead-poisoned inmates is getting older now. The peak of leaded gas was in 1977, then it dropped and disappeared. Lead poisoning causes impulsivity, anger, and risk-taking, especially when absorbed in infancy. When the lead in bodies went down so did the crime, which is still dropping.”

“Stefan's law predicts that the energy in a system rises as the 4th power of the temperature. Don't need a computer model to see that more energy will cause more damage.The computer models have been accurate and the data shows the temperature of earth is rising faster that any natural forcing function can predict. Your statement of "2 to 1" makes no sense.”

“Software development projects are almost always contracted out by both government and private industries. Nobody can staff up from scratch for a large project and then fold down again when the project goes into maintenance.

This means there are 2 points of failures for any project, the contractee and the contractor. Mismanagement is rife in the software industry.

Software development is still an uncertain business. It is hard to evaluate the potential of a company to do a good job. (The best programmers are PhD particle physicists, when there has been overproduction of them.)

Yes, this should have been better done. Also, it would have been very expensive to accommodate the early rush, many more disk drives and processors would have been needed. There is probably enough power to serve the potential users in the next few months, just not the first week.”

Brokecongress on Oct 14, 2013 at 13:35:08

“Honestly, I am aware they are mostly contracted out. The PhD particle physicist part, never heard that one. The best ones I have ever worked with are the ones who do it everyday for a living.

I completely understand the scaling of hardware to handle the loads. They could have added many servers by now with no problem, they could have built on a cloud platform (I expect they did) which would have made it very fast and easy to increase the capacity of the system. Either way, by now, servers are obviously not the issue.

I problem is not so much that it "could have been done better" we all know that, my problem is we are two weeks into it and it is still not better. That is the part that is to be shamed, not that it had a "glitch" here ore there. That should be expected, but by now.... well I just think the excuses are getting thin after two weeks.”
