60 Minutes Overtime Original / April 06, 2014 On the road with the Health Wagon It's not the first time Scott Pelley stepped foot on the beat-up Winnebago where the working poor of Appalachia get free health care Blogging Seems To Have Peaked, Says Pew Report The Pew Internet and American Life Project released its latest report today documenting how different generations use the Internet, and most of the findings won't come as a surprise. Across generations and almost across the board, we're spending more time engaged in online activities, as watching videos, listening to music, and reading the news, for example, become inceasingly popular. The one notable exception: a decline in blogging among teens, with only half as many blogging today as did in 2006. Blogging also declined slightly among adults aged 18-33. Its popularity did increase among older generations, and as a result the result for adult blogging overall went up, from 11% in late 2008 to 14% this year. Wired's Ryan Singel has a great analysis on whether or not we've reached "peak blogging."

Secondo me sta notizia è stata comprata dal magnate per convincere i business men stranieri ad investire su questi organismi. Anche se sono d'accordo che l'ucraina si dovrebbe riformare e parecchio Now that Ukraine's electoral battles are over and the conflict in the country's eastern regions is frozen, one of three scenarios could unfold: Quick and painful economic and regulatory surgery, a slide into Russia's suffocating embrace, or chaos, as gangs of former volunteer fighters from the eastern war go on the rampage. The window of opportunity for Ukraine to seize the first -- and best -- option is rapidly closing, but politicians squabbling over portfolios and bureaucrats who perpetuate the old corrupt system seem oblivious to the urgency. To a handful of outsiders who are pushing for rapid change, failure to act would be a tragedy. One of these outsiders is Kakha Bendukidze, a former business tycoon who engineered Georgia's successful economic deregulation under then-President Mikheil Saakashvili. It's a frustrating experience, he said in an interview in the lobby of a Kiev hotel.

The Difference Between Friends, Fans and Followers With every day that passes, brand managers are learning the value of presence in social networks. The extent to which new media permeates a company’s fabric depends on where in the world the company is based, as well as the prevailing culture of its organization. What’s clear however, is that brands are paying attention. Social media and our understanding of its promise are raw. I’ve always believed that media and ensuing behavior are evolving faster than our ability to master it. As such, it relegates us to an important, not menial role of student versus expert.

I Do Not Want Mercy, I Want You To Join Me Tim DeChristopher, who was sentenced Tuesday to two years in federal prison and a $10,000 fine for 'disrupting' a Bureau of Land Management auction in 2008, had an opportunity to address the court and the judge immediately before his sentence was announced. This is his statement: "… those who write the rules are those who profit from the status quo.

Judicial Errors and Crime Deterrence: Theory and Experimental Evidence Abstract The standard economic theory of crime deterrence predicts that the conviction of an innocent (type-I error) is as detrimental to deterrence as the acquittal of a guilty individual (type-II error). In this paper, we qualify this result theoretically, showing that in the presence of risk aversion, loss-aversion, or differential sensitivity to procedural fairness, type-I errors can have a larger effect on deterrence than type-II errors. We test these predictions with an experiment where participants make a decision on whether to steal from other individuals, being subject to different probabilities of judicial errors. The results indicate that both types of judicial errors have a large and significant impact on deterrence, but these effects are not symmetric. An increase in the probability of type-I errors has a larger negative impact on deterrence than an equivalent increase in the probability of type-II errors.
