> For the men taking ibuprofen, within 14 days, their luteinizing hormones -- which are secreted by the pituitary gland and stimulate the testicles to produce testosterone -- became coordinated with the level of ibuprofen circulating in their blood. At the same time, the ratio of testosterone to luteinizing hormones decreased, a sign of dysfunctional testicles.

>This hormonal imbalance produced compensated hypogonadism, a condition associated with impaired fertility, depression and increased risk for cardiovascular events, including heart failure and stroke.

> However, it's unknown whether the health effects of long-term ibuprofen use are reversible, he said.

Oh! Oh! Wait, wait... remember this?

In a move that should surprise nobody, it turns out Trump isn't all that dedicated to keeping American jobs for Americans, at least not in the tech sector. Trump supporting tech workers hoping for sweeping changes to the H-1B visa program are due for some big disappointment:
>Under intense pressure from the business and technology communities, the Trump administration appears to be backing away from a policy change that could have forced foreign tech workers out of the country.
>The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, part of the Department of Homeland Security, on Monday said it was still conducting a thorough review of worker visa programs. But after McClatchy reported over New Year’s weekend that the agency was weighing a specific policy shift that would prevent foreign tech industry workers from keeping their visas longer than six years, the agency reversed course on that proposal.

Coal miner is an old job that has been replaced by small teams of machine operators. The image of men with pick axes and buckets is an antiquated one. Even if we switched entirely to coal power it wouldn't have an effect on unemployment, it may actually raise it considering most power plants don't run on coal and they probably employ more people than coal mining with modern equipment ever could.

Tech companies will go with the people here on work visas because they will accept less pay and they are kiss asses that fear getting sent home. They just expect them to go above and beyond their job description for no extra incentive other than they want to stay. Outsourcing does fuck over workers here, but it's not like these companies are innocent victims in all of this. I have heard rumors of companies like Google buying cruise ships they plan on parking a few miles off the coast that they will turn into coding farms for people they want to employ but don't want to go through the Visa process with. They would find a way to outsource even if it was illegal.

Facebook has publicly admitted to working with the US and Israeli governments to remove posts and accounts it sees as a threat to Israel. At the same time speech that will get others barred from using the platform is not only tolerated, but celebrated and encouraged. Facebook decided to commit to these policies after the state of Israel threatened to block access to the site in their country.

https://theintercept.com/2017/12/30/facebook-says-it-is-deleting-accounts-at-the-direction-of-the-u-s-and-israeli-governments/

>In September of last year, we noted that Facebook representatives were meeting with the Israeli government to determine which Facebook accounts of Palestinians should be deleted on the ground that they constituted “incitement.”

>Israel threatened Facebook that its failure to voluntarily comply with Israeli deletion orders would result in the enactment of laws requiring Facebook to do so, upon pain of being severely fined or even blocked in the country.

>Israeli officials have been publicly boasting about how obedient Facebook is when it comes to Israeli censorship orders: "Shortly after news broke earlier this month of the agreement between the Israeli government and Facebook, Israeli Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked said Tel Aviv had submitted 158 requests to the social media giant over the previous four months asking it to remove content it deemed “incitement.” She said Facebook had granted 95 percent of the requests."

>A 2016 report from the Palestinian Center for Development and Media Freedoms detailed how extensive the Facebook censorship was: Pages and personal accounts that were filtered and blocked: Palestinian Dialogue Network (PALDF.net) Gaza now, Jerusalem News Network, Shihab agency, Radio Bethlehem 2000, Orient Radio Network, page Mesh Heck, Ramallah news, journalist Huzaifa Jamous from Abu Dis, activist Qassam Bedier, activist Mohammed Ghannam, journalist Kamel Jbeil, administrative accounts for Al Quds Page, administrative accounts Shihab agency, activist Abdel-Qader al-Titi, youth activist Hussein Shajaeih, Ramah Mubarak (account is activated), Ahmed Abdel Aal (account is activated), Mohammad Za’anin (still deleted), Amer Abu Arafa (still de…

It's all about how the game is being played. CoD specifically aims at the lowest-common-denominator shite in gameplay, gamemodes, marketing and game philosophy.

Just consider for a moment how CoD relates to Doom's concept of orthogonal unit differentiation; in which most enemies have unique attributes that set them apart. In CoD, EVERYTHING is a guy with a gun that dies in a few hits. Now consider the big competitors of CoD. Battlefield has soldiers, tanks, jeeps, aircraft, ships, etc. you get the idea. While all humans have the same attributes, the inclusion of vehicles means there are still distinct enemy classes. This makes the gameplay of Battlefield more complex, even if it's still a very shallow level of orthogonal unit differentiation compared to games like Doom or Deus Ex.
And I haven't even discussed teamwork, cooperative play etc.

CoD is for retards that want to shoot other people without thinking. Basically, it's a cop game.

MMOs depend on some degree of long-term thinking, cooperation, and effective communication. FPS, generally, do not.

So, while basically anyone can get into and enjoy FPS, MMOs by nature have a self-selecting process that weeds out alt-right personality traits.

Also, it's a lot easier to permaban people from MMOs completely vs hundreds of individual private FPS servers, which probably helps.

In addition to keeping the smallfolk in a constant state of fear and paranoia, this system should help citizens to remember their place and stay in line:
>In all seriousness, the Blue Alert system only serves one purpose: to elevate law enforcement officers above the people they serve, granting their victimhood a higher status than that granted to their fellow citizens.

Well we agree then. All im saying is I don't trust police go actively respond to people like say Pablo or Capone out of a moral high point in the end they're just trying to enforce their own power and have done things just as horrible as the people theyre after in their chase.

The Mafia in Mexico was used to disappear dissidents same in Italy. An anarchist bank robber wrote about how they were miserable criminals who do little to break free from the brutal mentality of society and live depressed and addictive lifestyles, all for materialism. At the same time a lot of people who get into crime would be less disgraceful if they were apart of something bigger. Crime will always exist and I'm sure we can all agree that if as many criminals wanted to be robin hood ratber than Scarface, most people would be better off.

As of this morning, both Vermont and New Hampshire have passed legalization measures for recreational cannabis through their houses of representatives. The legislation is currently pending state senate approval in both cases.

Personally I'm kind of psyched to see New England become a sort of cannabis mecca, should both or even one of these wind up passing.

Its a shame the boarders are controlled by the Feds, since Canada is going to mass legalizes this year. There could be cons on Weed otherwise.

https://www.reuters.com/article/us-turkey-security/turkish-lawyers-say-decree-grants-impunity-for-political-violence-idUSKBN1EJ0MW

ANKARA (Reuters) - A new emergency decree in Turkey could allow vigilantes to carry out political violence with impunity against opponents of the government suspected of involvement in last year’s coup attempt, Turkey’s main lawyers’ groups said on Monday.

The government defended the emergency decree, issued on Sunday, which it said was intended to ensure that Turks who took to the streets to protect the elected government during the failed 2016 coup would not face punishment.

Turkey already granted officials immunity last year from prosecution for their official actions taken to suppress the coup. Sunday’s decree extended that immunity to civilians “whether they have an official title or not, and whether they have carried out official duties or not”.

The lawyers’ groups said the measure was vaguely-worded and could lead to violence.

“People will start shooting each other in the head on the streets. How will you prevent this?” Metin Feyzioglu, the head of the Union of Turkish Bar Associations, said in a video response.

>Reminder that Turkey is a nuclear-armed state, a member of NATO and also a major stopping-off point for ISIS recruits.

It was a Greek ship if I remember correctly. Hilariously the Israelis managed to unite the Turks and the Greeks against them. One wonders how long they can keep this type of crap up. Unless the U.S.A. completely funds their economy they will pretty much collapse once the E.U. loses patience (I'm assuming that the middle east and north Africa would be boycotting them too).

Judges: North Carolina must redo map skewed by partisanship by Polly Hizzlegold - Tue, 09 Jan 2018 22:20:12 EST ID:qetGCKL9 No.164753 Report Reply Quick Reply

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Federal judges ruled Tuesday that North Carolina’s congressional district map drawn by legislative Republicans is illegally gerrymandered because of excessive partisanship that gave the GOP a rock-solid advantage for most seats and must quickly be redone.

The ruling marks the second time this decade that the GOP’s congressional boundaries in the state have been thrown out by a three-judge panel. In 2016, another panel tossed out two majority black congressional districts initially drawn in 2011, saying there was no justification for using race as the predominant factor in forming them. The redrawn map was the basis for a new round of lawsuits.

Nice. It's fucking disgusting what Republicans have done to "democracy". The way these districts are drawn are a joke. A representative can't represent some of these districts that weave in and out of completely different geographical, demographical & socioeconomic areas. They are basically meaningless, to the point where we should just eschew the whole district system and do something else like where you vote for a party and they get a percentage of that state's representatives based on the percentage of votes they got for a state.

Look at the districts like pic related. You don't draw a district like that unless you're trying to pack most of the democrats in the state from Duke to the Charlotte urban center into one weirdly shaped blob, so you make sure Republicans cover the spread in the rest of the districts.

you fucking beat me to it. here's the whole map for what it's worth.

the long thin district you pointed out is the 12th. then there's the 2nd, which for some reason snakes all the way around the 4th, which in turn snakes into others such as the 13th and 6th. i mean what the fuck.

and fucking cons insist that the founding father were geniuses.

the notion of electoral districts and their boundaries have been a matter of contention since the inception of the country (hint: repubs weren't the first to do it in the US). the constitution doesn't really do a good job of outlining how to prevent gerrymandering or even how representatives in each state should be divied up in general. as a result, individual states' congressmen/legisators quickly took advantage of this to create systems they saw as advantageous to whatever faction they belonged to at the time. basically there was no safeguarding against electoral funny business built into the constitution. and here we are, stuck with it. not thanks to it, but in spite of it.

Because they only exist due to an underlying political system that allows them to in the first place, that underlying system having been created by the founders?

Colorado shooting suspect was an Iraq War vet who posted alt-right ‘Pepe’ memes on social media by Nell Pittridge - Tue, 02 Jan 2018 21:28:29 EST ID:qetGCKL9 No.164577 Report Reply Quick Reply

https://www.rawstory.com/2018/01/colorado-shooting-suspect-was-an-iraq-war-vet-who-posted-alt-right-pepe-memes-on-social-media/

Matthew Riehl, the man accused of killing a suburban Denver sheriff’s deputy and wounding four others, is a veteran of the Iraq War who is also fond of posting alt-right memes on his Facebook account.

Forbes writer J.J. MacNab discovered Riehl’s Facebook page, in which he identifies himself as “Matt Gonzo,” and where he has posted multiple memes featuring Pepe the Frog, the cartoon that has been appropriated as a symbol for white nationalists.

Other of Riehl’s Facebook posts include calling former President Barack Obama a “lying piece of sh*t” and shared posts from alt-right website Breitbart News.

As the Associated Press has reported, Riehl seemed to have a grudge against local police officers, and posted multiple complaints about the Douglas County Sheriff’s Department on YouTube.

Specifically, the AP notes that Riehl in a December video called for “the firing of Douglas County Sheriff Tony Spurlock” and attacked him “in highly personal terms.” Riehl also said that during that video that he would be running as a “libertarian” candidate for Douglas County Sheriff.

No, they're not. Because the culture changed, dramatically.

You're not making the mistake of thinking that the American South is the default blueprint for the rest of the country and all of humanity, and therefore if Southerners haven't changed and moved on by now then nobody can, are you?

Sure, but the specifics in this thread, the anti-Christers and Bible literalists and Christian soldiers and whatnot, seem very likely to disappear on their own as significant political forces simply due to the passage of time. I'm pretty sure this is one reason for why the Bible-thumpers have gotten so frantic and desperate in recent years, because even they can see the signs all around them that their particular flavor of prejudices are dying along with them.

It is probably true that the younger generations will simply satisfy that impulse with something else, yes. But at least those arguments will stem from something other than magical desert fairybook prophecies, and so in that respect, at least, I think it is fair to say that things are destined to get better over time.

We'll be fucked in all sorts of other ways, sure. But probably not in this way, not nearly as much.

I'm not so sure. To me it seems like a polarization is happening. Urban population is becoming less and less religious, while evangelists in the country are becoming more hardline christian. So on paper it seems like the trend is less religious people, but in reality it only reflect a change in the part of the people who are already likely to loose their faith.

Yeah but the country is also becoming more urban overall, so while the country rubes are getting more religious there's also less of them. So as a political force (gerrymandering notwithstanding) they should get less powerful over time.

Obviously Russia is perfectly fine with its neighbor becoming more stable, since Russia certainly hasn't sent any tanks, artillery, or personnel to Ukraine.

But an example of him signing something without realizing he just made policy because he can't be assed to read would be pretty great.
