Sick Of This Market-driven World? You Should Be | George Monbiot | Comment Is Free | The Guardian

Verhaeghe points out that neoliberalism draws on the ancient Greek idea that our ethics are innate (and governed by a state of nature it calls the market) and on the Christian idea that humankind is inherently selfish and acquisitive. Rather than seeking to suppress these characteristics, neoliberalism celebrates them: it claims that unrestricted competition, driven by self-interest, leads to innovation and economic growth, enhancing the welfare of all. At the heart of this story is the notion of merit. Untrammelled competition rewards people who have talent, work hard, and innovate. It breaks down hierarchies and creates a world of opportunity and mobility.

Penglihatan lebih dulu berkembang daripada pendengaran dan separuh perkembangan intelektual seseorang berlangsung di bawah usia 4 tahun.

U.S. experts eye Japanese drug in race for Ebola cure | The Japan Times

There has been tremendous progress over the last five to 10 years in developing vaccines and post-exposure treatments for Ebola, said Thomas Geisbert, a virologist and veteran Ebola researcher at the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston. At least four to five different vaccines and three treatments have been shown to protect monkeys from doses of Ebola that would normally be lethal, he said. He is working to test combinations of drugs and vaccines that may have even greater effectiveness. In addition to the Mapp Biopharmaceutical Inc. antibody cocktail drug that was used on two Americans who contracted Ebola, drugs that have helped monkeys survive Ebola include TKM-Ebola from Tekmira Pharmaceuticals Corp.

However we learned that the question of what constitutes sufficient privacy is contextual and very personal. We will need a nuanced way to address the issue of privacy and informed consent, says Bietz. What kind of health apps do you currently have on your phone?

Navigating the Path Towards Responsible Personal Health Data Research

All this, Verhaeghe points out, is fundamental to the neoliberal model, which everywhere insists on comparison, evaluation and quantification. We find ourselves technically free but powerless. Whether in work or out of work, we must live by the same rules or perish. All the major political parties promote them, so we have no political power either.

Many of these health-related companies were started by individuals interested in public health and public good. But these are private companies. Their owners still need to consider the companys interests, explains Bietz.The full report on the survey can be accessed on the project website. Data analysis will require some rethinking as well. Traditional health research is controlled, specific and very focused. By contrast, personal health data is real time data, highly variable, without experimental controls or organized sampling.

Navigating the Path Towards Responsible Personal Health Data Research

The reality is rather different. Even at the beginning of the process, when markets are first deregulated, we do not start with equal opportunities. Some people are a long way down the track before the starting gun is fired. This is how the Russian oligarchs managed to acquire such wealth when the Soviet Union broke up. They werent, on the whole, the most talented, hardworking or innovative people, but those with the fewest scruples, the most thugs, and the best contacts often in the KGB. Even when outcomes are based on talent and hard work, they dont stay that way for long.

The Origins of the Chemtrail Conspiracy – Pacific Standard: The Science of Society

The video is 40 seconds long, the first five of which are unintelligible. It quickly becomes clear (well, hazily clear) that were seeing footage of an airplane coming in low for a landing at night. Trailing behind it are several stripes of aircraft exhaust. The plane passes a few lampposts, and by the 25-second mark, its safely on the ground. At that point, the cameras operator zooms out and shifts left and up, panning over a stream of condensation left in the sky.
