    @mandyd (in this case, I'm referring to the modern concentration on chronic disease and disparities, which is heavily linked to poverty, rather than the traditional communicable disease role of public health.)

      @mandyd working in public health and seeing some of the think tanks out there, I'm sometimes concerned that there's more money to be made in prolonging the problem, even with the most well meaning people.

        "An anode made of...graphene that was seeded with bacteria would break down the saliva into electrons, protons and CO2. For the cathode...the scientists simply relied on oxygen...to produce not quite 1uW of power...enough to run some low-power devices."

          WSJ: "Researchers at Penn State University and King Abdullah University of Science and Technology in Saudi Arabia have developed a microbial fuel cell that can generate small but usable amounts of power from saliva."

            "Around 70 cents of every dollar designated to relieve poverty goes not to poor people but to people who serve the poor—social workers, counselors, et cetera," he says. "We've created a poverty industry, turned poor people into a commodity."

              Reading a WSJ article on Bob Woodson. I admire this man. Look him up.

                  @ronnie yup, he was Muldoon. but Chamberlain Haller was still his best role, even better than John Kerry. I mean, Herman Munster.

                    @ronnie Fred Gwynne at least went out with the best role of his career.

                          I love it when I have a programming breakthrough, especially when it's on something Apple doesn't document well.

                                  @morrick I still like the 1400's keyboard better, but I do appreciate the Duo's small size, and a 2300 can still do a decent amount in 8.1.

                                    I got a new-old-stock Duo battery for my 2300c today. it might even be halfway practical as a laptop after all for some limited specified purpose. potentially. @morrick
