I just wanted to add that D.A.R.E program I was forced to participate in at school is probably one of the things that got me curious about drugs in the first place. Lol though for a while I was actually afraid there where strange people hiding around corners ready to force me to do drugs that I'd h...

http://www.seattletimes.com/nation-world/report-details-psychologists-role-in-cia-torture-program/ this seems very unsavory to me, and it diminishes my level of trust in members of the profession. It isn't the first time. Dr. Ewen Cameron worked for the CIA and later became the president of the APA...

All that is needed then, is for someone within the Clinton administration, its Department of Justice or the FBI to cook up the idea to "order" one or more of the agents to act in ways that contravene his, her or their years of training. Certainly, Docharty's research showed that quite a f...

They were the bad guys at Waco. They didn't listen to the advice of their behavioral analysts or the their experts on cults. Instead the leader of the operation acted entirely based off his stereotyped perception of cults. If they had actually listened to the people who are hired by the government ...

Also, time to update 'the list' ...again. Mercury. Lead. Pesticides. Plastics. Gluten. Not enough strawberries. Brain damage. Automotive exhaust. Bad brain nerves. Vaccines. Chemicals found in non-stick cookware. Lack of maternal bonding. Bad parenting. No worms. Parasites. Heavy metals. Lyme disea...

...there's the simple matter that not every American is going to support secession, and in fact would be p*ssed off to no end that a disgruntled state would want to leave the union. Quite right. But, we are very likely debating angels, pinheads and such, after all. There are, indeed, many permutati...

I think your problem is generalizing.
In algebra, it doesn't matter what the symbol is for the variable, whether x, y, r, h, or some symbol you make up yourself.


But they do often try to enforce it. I have often been penalized for changing the variable's symbol.

I hate it when they change the monomes/binomes/whatever to defined letters to make formulas for example the area of a cylinder. I have to associate each part of the formula to what it means and it can take weeks for me to understand if I don't get it on the first time. Basic algebra becomes really ...

I went to mine because I was invited by a girl to it and it seemed like the ethical thing to do at that point. I didn't like it at all, but she enjoyed it a lot and I'm happy about that.

I often brew it myself. It takes about 48 hours to brew after the ingredients are mixed. I can often smell the alcohol in it, but the slight alcohol flavor is still rather hit or miss as I can't maintain the proper conditions for the perfect brew at the moment. It isn't ever quite enough to cause t...

I wish my teacher knew that I think that he is completely ignorant on mathematics. I wish my teacher knew that I think being in ...

The method for brewing a carbonated drink is essentially the same as brewing an alcoholic drink. The difference between an alcoholic beverage and a soda is that a soda has to legally have less than or equal to 0.5% alcohol by volume. Back then, there wasn't a legal distinction, which meant there co...

One of my grandfathers had a PhD in math. Does that count? Mathematics is more of an art, but sure, it counts. Nope. We don't have "math genes" in my family. Most everyone is a blue collar worker with either a GED, or nothing beyond a high school diploma. If there's a profession that seem...

I think it's important in these discussions to be more deliberate with what we're talking about when we say "cure". Depending on the person or context, cure could mean any of the following: 1) A pill taken daily that would mitigate or reduce symptoms, but would not have lingering effects ...
