Re: Boys soccer team need our prayers!!!
I am trying to wrap my head around being stuck on that small patch on ground in total darkness for x amount of days. Can't even imagine what the soccer coach was going through knowing those kids are his responsibility.

He must be an incredible person to have kept them all sane and in the relatively relaxed state they were in when they were found.

Re: If You Could Ask El Al Management One Question... We are well aware that your customer service is inline with what is acceptable in Israel.  Would you be interested, as a company that has lots of customers from outside of Israel, in learning what customer service means in the rest of the world?

Re: Interesting Articles...

Compared to abstinence, imbibing one "standard drink" -- 10 grammes of alcohol, equivalent to a small beer, glass of wine or shot of spirits -- per day, for example, ups the odds of developing at least one of two dozen health problems by about half-a-percent, the researchers reported.

Looked at one way, that seems like a small increment: 914 out of 100,000 teetotallers will encounter those problems, compared to 918 people who imbibe seven times per week.

"But at the global level, that additional risk of 0.5 percent among (once-a-day) drinkers corresponds to about 100,000 additional deaths each year," said senior author Emmanuela Gakidou, a professor at the University of Washington and a director at the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation.

Are you kidding me?  Increases risk by half a percent?  I have no formal statistics training but I can't imagine that the margin of error on such a study isn't far greater than half a percent. 

Basically, they found no correlation between drinking once a day and health problems, but that didn't fit what they set out to prove so they jiggled the numbers a bit and still only managed to show a .5% increased risk.

Re: Re: RIP/BDE Master Thread
Much respect for him, but I did fee that towards the end of his life he was more worried about making a legacy for himself than supporting his party.

He was more loyal to his principles than to his party, an admirable trait if you ask me. You may disagree with his principles but why cast aspersions on a dead man's motives?  As far as I can tell, his stand on Obamacare and immigration fit with his long held philosophy of centrism.

Sheep being led right to the slaughterhouse.

"I just know this. I like Donald Trump and I think that he's doing the right thing," said Keller, who turned out to support Trump Aug. 21 when he promoted his rollback proposal. She lives five miles from the 2,900-megawatt John Amos coal-fired power plant.

"I think he has the best interests of the regular common people at the forefront," Keller says.

"Trump's rollback would kill an extra 1.4 to 2.4 people a year for every 100,000 people in those hardest-hit areas, compared to under the Obama plan, according to the EPA analysis. For West Virginia's 1.8 million people, that would be equal to at least a couple dozen additional deaths a year."

If this article was any more slanted, it would tip over.

Not to trivialize 1.4 to 2.4 deaths per 100,000,  there is a cost to poverty and unemployment as well.  I imagine it would at least equal out. 

If we move to ban anything that correlates to 2.4 deaths per 100,000,  what will we do about cars?

Quote from: Google Search
There were 34,439 fatal motor vehicle crashes in the United States in 2016 in which 37,461 deaths occurred. This resulted in 11.6 deaths per 100,000 people and 1.16 deaths per 100 million miles traveled.

On top of that,  the article cleverly disguises that Trumps plan is projected to SAVE lives.  Only when compared to Obama's unimplemented, theoretical, plan does it project cost of 1.4 - 2.4 lives per 100k.

"In Washington, EPA spokesman Michael Abboud said Trump's plan still would result in "dramatic reductions" in emissions, deaths and illness compared to the status quo, instead of to the Obama plan."

Re: Vaccine Discussion Master Thread
Thiomersal was actually removed from almost all children's vaccines, besides for some flu shots, as a precautionary measure because of the mercury in it.
I don't think it was done as a precautionary measure but rather as a (futile, in the end) attempt to placate the anti vaxxers.

Re: Interesting Articles... Israel is a notable exception as a country in the Middle East where Arab Christians can thrive, perhaps even more so than in Lebanon, and also happens to be the actual place Christianity began. That is very relevant to the article and no doubt the author is well aware.  He just went out of his way to avoid portraying Israel in a positive light.
