No, it is - for certain ethnicities and depending on where you live. Vitamin D, casein and whey proteins, are majorly important for a great many body fuctions. That's well known and accepted everywhere, except for kooks on Youtube who tell you don't need dairy. Rolleyes

Yeah, who would take unsourced medical anecdotes from a non-doctor on an internet forum?

I'm not going to waste my time and energy providing links to something anyone can easily find within a minute or two of searching if they're so inclined. If you don't understand why we need dairy, grains, fats, etc. than that's your problem. This isn't rocket surgery. No, let's just listen to some random guy on Youtube spouting bullshit. Yeah, that's the smart thing to do, Stephen. Rolleyes


It is not just some random guy. Did you even watch the videos? With an open scientific mind? Look up his bio? Notice everything he said was backed up by rigorous scientific studies? You call him a kook and random guy; but point of fact, you are in this situation. It took all of 3 seconds to search and find a short bio of the "kook", which I will provide below. This is only about the milk/dairy part, the grain part is another aspect of the conversation I am not talking about nor said anything about. So again, why is your common misconceptions more correct then well performed research studies covering millions of people and performed by hundreds of researches at difference institutions and fields of science? You are being no different than the climate change deniers because 'some guy in their past' told them so and they believe it; because it is just what they know and believe/feel correct...

And cracked is wrong replacing dairy with water. Dairy is essential - at least for those of us of northern european descent who still live in northern climes. For people in the sun belt who get plenty of exposure to sun and fresh veg year round, not so much.

No diary is not essential for you.

1. iOS 10 is surfacing hardcore porn GIFs in iMessage. Sep 15, 2016, 21:42 Enahs
 
From the article:
" The GIF feature is powered by Bing; we've also reached out to Microsoft for comment."
And also;
" was presented with "a very explicit image" of "a woman giving oral sex to a well endowed male." Her daughter hadn't searched for anything explicit, just the word "huge."

That just tells you how silly Apple is. Go to Bing image search at search for "huge". If you have their "safe search" turned to moderate, you get mostly pictures of large breasts. But they are covered up, and not nude. There are a few other things, but the first 50 or so as no nudity at least. If you turn the safe search feature to strict, there are no breasts, or things age inappropriate. If you turn safe search all the way off, you get large breasts and also what sounds like the description of the oral sex to the well endowed man in the article in some of the first few results.

There seems to be no reason to reach out to Microsoft as the article said, they did there part and it seems to work rather well. You can easily find the things you want with the correct terminology if you set your safe search restrictions correct. Apple literally is just completely ignoring all of Microsoft's hard work on filtering out age inappropriate content, which seems to work pretty damn well. It also is a trivially easy fix, so why has Apple not fixed it already?

Glad this douchebag is being nailed, but he committed this crime back in the 70s. Isn't there a statute of limitations?

Which is probably why he is being charged with obstruction of justice charges when initially asked about it, and not actually the events themselves.

If you do not care about having all the new fancy apps, get a Windows Phone. Yes, the platform is currently failing. But Microsoft is supporting Windows 10 Mobile greatly because it is Windows 10 at the core, constant updated and improvements. It is quite nice now. My Lumia 950 from last year still completely destroys my GF's brand new S7 camera. And the Continuum stuff is awesome.
If you want a really fancy phone HP released a new enterprise Windows Phone (you can read about using just the phone as your PC for a week here)
But it is expensive. But awesome as hell.

But you will not get many of the new apps. Though with Windows 10 that has been changing quite a bit, actually. But Microsoft is not pushing for Windows Phone at consumers really right now; they are focusing on enterprise. But it really does rock! They are also going to stop selling their Lumia line of phones this year...Maybe they will have something awesome lined up for next year, who knows.
You can also own the entry level Lumia 650 for $200 up front, save a lot of money since you probably do not use your phone that much anyway.

Just saying, don't stone me guys. I just really love my Lumia 950! It does my emails, messaging, web surfing, music, and phoning really well, which is all I use my phone for!
Especially with my custom leather back.

This and the increased speed is more about making the GPUs better for general purpose calculations and servers, not gaming. Gaming will get the benefits from it in several years, yes. But this is about making small scale to crazy large scale GPu accelerated clusters easier to maintain and upgrade, as well as perform better.

You are complaining about 32C? Man up, man. That is not really all that hot. When it gets over 37C and your body is actually cooling down the environment, only then are you allowed to complain.

The video is right in one aspect, that charcoal can burn hotter. But the difference in taste from charcoal to gas is more generally affected by two other things. One, charcoal grills when done right will put off more direct infrared radiation, changing the cooking profile. But most importantly, combustion of charcoal does not produce water vapor, where as combustion of gas does. Water vapor impedes the infusion of smoke into the meat. So those delicious smoke flavors from small flareups they are referring to, less of that goes into the meat (for gas). Slow long smoking (aka BBQ) overcomes this limitation with time, fyi.

jimnms, then you might check out Ikea.

I saw this one at Ikea while browsing the other day. That's about the size of the longer end of my current L desk and looks simple enough for me. I wish there was an Ikea close to me so I could check one out and see how sturdy it is.

If you go making your own L, I would go with something more like these designs:
http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/categories/departments/workspaces/11844/
Which for those you then get separately the legs, and put one on all 4 corners. If you go with the design you linked, where the two desks join you will have the leg support in the way of your knees and easy transitioning from one side to the other. Where as if you went with the 4 corner legs, and left the one off after joining he two tables, it would not be a problem and plenty of knee/leg space.

jimnms, then you might check out Ikea. You can get simple clean table tops and legs fairly cheap. http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/categories/departments/workspaces/10712/
Of different designs and such. You would just not put a leg at the corner of the inside L table. And attach them together from underneath so the table with the missing leg is supported by the other table. They also have fairly cheap and decent under the table cable organizer attachments and such. So you could easily build a large L shaped table, with basic cable management for much less than $100. Or you can go with some of the more cooler and fancier table tops, but those start getting a little more expensive.

I would say Microsoft did. ~5 years before Apple. I had a touch screen smart phone that was GPS enabled, could send email and surf the internet, and install applications and games, connect to wifi; long before the iPhone. So did many people and businesses. Apple made it stylish and more user friendly and marketed it to the general public.

I'm done with SLI, too many of the game I play don't optimize for it. It became a chore to use to the point that I pulled one of my GTX780s and it's been sitting on my shelf ever since (2 years now).

It is funny and odd, that I have had the same general symptoms as Blue has expressed, starting at the exact same time; and the same apparent getting better and then worse again.

Mine I blame on an airplane trip a few days before.

I said drug testing office workers is insulting. I don't care what the test is for. My employer doesn't need access to my bodily fluids to determine if I'm good enough to work for them.

Should they also test my blood sugar? What if I'm diabetic?
How many hours of sleep do I get a night?
Maybe I have sleep apnea... A dead employee is also a bad prospect.

Sorry, before you work here we're going to require you to sleep over night at this testing center. We're going to hook up all of these wires to you because sleep deprivation has been shown to effect performance on nearly an equal level with some drugs.

While I am not pro drug testing or defending it in any way. Your argument is just plain wrong and silly. Drugs are a choice. Yes in some cases a convoluted choice with lots of outside driving factors, etc etc etc. But you can not chose to stop being diabetic or have sleep apena. Which is why these tests do not actually check (or supposed to) for prescription drugs, as those are medical conditions and you are not supposed to discriminate for medical conditions.

Which also makes the whole drug testing fairly frivolous, as prescription drugs are by far more abused than all the hardcore illegal drugs.

Another, much cheaper option then a crazy expensive case and cooling; which totally depends on how your office/space is configured. Is to just spend ~$30 at amazon from some acoustic sound dampening foam tiles and put it around computer case where major noise is coming from. Obviously not directly up against it blocking fans, but the surrounding area and such.

Totally dependent on your setup, and if it can be made it look nice. But works quite well.

If your back pain is not from an injury or over excursion, then it is actually probably cause by tight hips and psoas, or weak glutes. Very common. Give this video a watch and check out some psoas and hip mobility drills, and if your gluts are weak do some squats and strengthen things up (body weight squats are fine).

Not sure what the answer is, but I wonder if there was a software way to kick off a GPS beacon if the user hits 9-1-1-send. There's no guarantee that you can get a GPS location data, but possibly tower triangulation? I'm out of my league here, but it's something that needs consideration.

That would be trivial to do, yes.

I just have to wonder, who does not know where they are?
I understand say driving down a highway or long stretch of road and can not give exact position for example, but you should at least know you are on X road and you were heading from Y to Z and approx time in route is enough to narrow it down as far as you need; as the emergency crew will have to drive the road anyway...
