A showdown is set to take place in the US House of Representatives today in what many hope will be a watershed moment for the fight against the National Security Agency's dragnet surveillance programs.

White House scrambles to shut down imminent vote to defund NSA spying

After weeks of outrage from members of Congress and the public, a novel amendment to an annual defense appropriations bill is looking to smother what some consider the most pernicious aspect of the spying activities exposed by whistleblower Edward Snowden. The amendment, led by Representative Justin Amash (R-MI), would stop the NSA's phone metadata program from collecting millions of Americans' communications records without suspicion of a crime. The proposal comes after a secret court order revealed that Verizon is being forced to turn over all its customers' calling records to the NSA on an "ongoing, daily basis," and the threat has become real enough that the federal government is now intervening in an attempt to stop the amendment from passing.

Google: Android app downloads have crossed 50 billion, over 1M apps in Play. Android 4.3 announced, rolling out to Nexus devices today. Google's famously breakneck Android update pace may have slowed in recent times, but that's what makes point upgrades like today's newly revealed Android 4.3 all the more interesting.

Android 4.3 announced, rolling out to Nexus devices today

Shipping with the new Nexus 7 and retaining the Jelly Bean codename, 4.3 brings a number of fresh new features. Google is starting us off with a new set of multi-user settings, including restricted profiles for the junior members of your family. That means you can restrict app content at a user level — the example offered by Hugo Barra is to allow only a select number of puzzles within a game to his son's profile, preventing the younger Barra from making ill-advised app purchases or accessing content his father doesn't deem suitable.

This looks to provide essentially the same functionality as Microsoft's Kid's Corner in Windows Phone. Bluetooth Smart, aka Bluetooth Low Energy, support was one of the expected features of Android 4.3, and it is indeed being introduced. Previous Next View full Gallery.

Gingivitis ("inflammation of the gum tissue") is a non-destructive periodontal disease.[1] The most common form of gingivitis, and the most common form of periodontal disease overall, is in response to bacterial biofilms (also called plaque) adherent to tooth surfaces, termed plaque-induced gingivitis.

Gingivitis

In the absence of treatment, gingivitis may progress to periodontitis, which is a destructive form of periodontal disease.[2] While in some sites or individuals gingivitis never progresses to periodontitis,[3] data indicates that periodontitis is always preceded by gingivitis.[4] Classification[edit] Periodontitis. Periodontitis /ˌpɛrioʊdɒnˈtaɪtɪs/ or pyorrhea /ˌpaɪəˈriə/ is a set of inflammatory diseases affecting the periodontium, i.e., the tissues that surround and support the teeth.

Periodontitis

Periodontitis involves progressive loss of the alveolar bone around the teeth, and if left untreated, can lead to the loosening and subsequent loss of teeth.

Could “Magic” Mushrooms Be Used to Treat Anxiety and Depression? (Smithsonian) - Shroomery News Service. N the 1960s and early 70s, researchers such as Harvard’s Timothy Leary enthusiastically promoted the study of so-called “magic” mushrooms (formally known as psilocybin mushrooms) and championed their potential benefits for psychiatry.

Could “Magic” Mushrooms Be Used to Treat Anxiety and Depression? (Smithsonian) - Shroomery News Service

For a brief moment, it seemed that controlled experiments with mushrooms and other psychedelics would enter the scientific mainstream. Then, everything changed. A backlash against the 1960s’ drug culture—along with Leary himself, who was arrested for drug possession—made research nearly impossible. The federal government criminalized mushrooms, and research ground to a halt for over 30 years. Bufotenin - Helped me!

Magic mushrooms' psychedelic ingredient could help treat people with severe depression. Prof David Nutt says that because magic mushrooms are rated as a class-A drug, their active chemical ingredient cannot be manufactured unless a special licence is granted. Photograph: Christian Sinibaldi for the Guardian Drugs derived from magic mushrooms could help treat people with severe depression. Scientists believe the chemical psilocybin, the psychedelic ingredient in magic mushrooms, can turn down parts of the brain that are overactive in severely depressive patients. The drug appears to stop patients dwelling on themselves and their own perceived inadequacies.

However, a bid by British scientists to carry out trials of psilocybin on patients in order to assess its full medical potential has been blocked by red tape relating to Britain's strict drugs laws.

Get a clue, McDonald’s: The other insult no one’s talking about.

Over the past few days, McDonald’s has gotten itself quite a bit of bad publicity, after it teamed with Visa to create a proposed sample budget for the enormously profitable fast food corporation’s hundreds of thousands of low-paid workers. Critics have pointed out that the budget omitted such luxury items as food and heat, that it made absurdly low estimates for medical insurance — and that, most strikingly of all, it appeared to suggest that its workers should maintain two full-time jobs.

(And indeed working two nearly-full time jobs would be necessary to produce the income in the sample budget, given the wages McDonald’s pays most of its employees). 2050_Map_Megaregions_Influence_150.png (2494×1662) Centipede's dilemma.
