I've spent my life cheerfully not being especially aware of Beyoncé but, goddamn it, "Lemonade" is one of the best albums I've heard in years, maybe decades. And the associated film is visually stunning, as well:
For the first time, a US patient has been infected with bacteria resistant to an antibiotic used as a last resort, scientists said Thursday.
“It is the end of the road for antibiotics unless we act urgently,” Dr Tom Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), said in Washington.
We could, of course, stop feeding our cattle antibiotics for merely prophylactic reasons and doctors could refuse to prescribe antibiotics for this viral reason and that not-at-all affected by antibiotics reason but Liberty™.
Ryan Bundy wrote in the document that "my rights are being violated. My right to life is being violated. All of my First Amendment rights are being violated. My right to freedom of religion is being violated. I cannot participate in religious activities and temple covenants, and wear religious garments."
Specifically Ryan says lack of access to talk with Ammon Bundy violates his freedom of assembly. He also argues that his Second Amendment rights have been violated, presumably because guns are not allowed in jails.
I await the NRA's demand that prisoners be allowed to open-carry firearms.
Republican lawmakers in Ohio approved a bill late Wednesday night that would force residents to put up a cash bond when they petition a court extend voting hours during an election day emergency, such as a natural disaster. If Gov. John Kasich (R) signs the bill, Ohio could become the first state in the nation to make voters risk losing tens of thousands of dollars of their own money when making the case for keeping the polls open a few extra hours.
The bill’s author, Republican Sen. Bill Seitz of Green Township, wrote an op-ed this week about his motivation for pushing the measure.
“Sadly, in both the November 2015 and March 2016 elections, rogue courts in Hamilton County issued orders extending polling hours. These orders cost Hamilton County taxpayers $57,000, and forced the inside poll workers to stay around for an extra 60 to 90 minutes after already working a 14-hour day.”
In the instances he’s citing, local courts ruled that true, unforeseen emergencies — a software glitch in 2015 that temporarily wiped out the poll books and a massive car wreck in 2016 that cut off the county’s main highway — justified keeping the polls open longer so that a few thousand waiting voters wouldn’t be disenfranchised.
Heck, it's only our republic on the line so no worries.
[...] to help men become more confident and in control of their body odor, the NOSE app will help tell the user if the odor is still OK, if it’s TIME or if it’s URGENT. The phone cover is made from special sensors that evaluate the smell of human sweat using an algorithm. The user has to hover the cellphone case under the armpits to activate the sensors.
I hear showering every now and then really helps with this problem, but I guess this app will help those of us living in drought prone areas.
