Can we just have a colosseum where groups that disagree can just battle to the death without hurting bystanders. That way we can get rid of all sorts of violent elements in our society. The Anti-Fa groups are just as dangerous as all the other violent groups and its a mistake to ignore them. Right now they might be getting practice fighting the white power people who nobody cares about, but soon enough they will wage violence in other places and for other causes.
Volunteer fire department is basically a 1/2 to 3/4 time job with no pay. For insurance and regulatory reasons the volunteers need to take almost all the training that the regular guys do and that eats up a lot of time. By the time you do your monthly training and then required minimum hours you are putting in ~60-80 hours a month minimum. The only people that can afford to do that either dont sleep or are retired.
On the subject of obesity that's also a huge problem for the volunteers, not only is the pool smaller but the people that need rescuing are bigger... way bigger. My buddy was volunteer EMS and blew out his back rescuing a 300+lb lady. Getting a 300lb person down a set of stairs needs either really expensive equipment or is just a recipe for injury and mostly its just injury since nobody wants to buy expensive stuff.
Realistically through its too expensive to provide services everywhere in the country, there are places that simply do not have enough population density to provide organized emergency services and need to revert to a more rural existence. The missing element there is that small communities are being choked by shitty one size fits all regulation that applies the same standards of training and regulation that exists in larger cities, and areas with higher density and that cant be supported by a community of a couple hundred. Lower standards of training should be fine in smaller communities.
There is big money is the drug and then drug recovery industry. The drugs are very expensive and then the recovery treatment is even more expensive. Many of the treatment programs arent even really evidence based and the ones that are are super costly to administer.
How do you keep your sanity and not make mistakes on no sleep. Is that something that you can manage or do you just end up making mistakes because of it and dealing with them as they come? I get tunnel focus pretty quickly during sleep deprivation, and memory goes to shit as well do you just learn to deal with that?
Which is good publicity again... and good for an insurance payout.
The ai just reverted to a communication protocol more similar to binary because using English was inefficient. It's likely that the communication protocol using English was too cumbersome so instead It arrived at a a pattern that was acceptable to the code for communication style but resulted in gibberish.
Why would they close over such a ridiculous article? I say they should own and embrace the label, rename it as cultural appropriation burrito and have all sorts of SJW named menu items. The outcry would be enormous but it would be a huge advertising boost for a totally unknown burrito cart. Im sure there are tons of portlandians that secretly hate all this hurt feeling bullshit.
There is no money in AIDS research, its not a problem the government is interested in funding. Originally it was seen as a gay mans disease and now its seen more as a poor Africans disease. Either way cancer gets orders of magnitude more funding because everyone, especially rich people will get cancer - eventually.
Same deal first year we lost 3 chickens, 2 got taken out during the middle of the day by a racoon, one just up and died one morning and the chicken corpse got pecked a bunch. Never named them and glad I didnt, my wife would have been a lot more upset if they had names.
