I'm officially transitioning from baker to pastry chef. It may seem an abstract difference, but I feel gratified and respected, and I like about the fact that there's a tinge of affirmative action in play. It's kinda crap that historically women belonged in the kitchen, but only men were good enough to go pro. Further good news in comments.
For the folks that follow my story, bless you kind souls, I talked to the executive chef (my direct boss) a bit more about my injury. Physical therapy is going well, but it's slow and I'm daunted by the job ahead. The restaurant opening got delayed another week, so that's good for me. Now I will get a week of training alone in the kitchen with EC. I can run through our opening dessert menu, and he'll work with me some on bread (by far my weak spot, I am lord of desserts but bread was always my husband's domain). If I can't keep up with the workload, they will hire an assistant for me... the most qualified other applicant for my job, an older man who specializes in bread. So that'll be incredibly helpful, and I gotta say it feels great that someone wants to hire me this bad. After my demoralizing experience losing my last job, I am very fortunate to have someone pursuing me when the thought of me pursuing a job was a bit overwhelming. Feeling grateful is the best, y'all. - Lo

Some Fear Ebola Outbreak Could Make Nation Turn to Science - http://www.newyorker.com/humor...
Some Fear Ebola Outbreak Could Make Nation Turn to Science
"NEW YORK (The Borowitz Report)—There is a deep-seated fear among some Americans that an Ebola outbreak could make the country turn to science. In interviews conducted across the nation, leading anti-science activists expressed their concern that the American people, wracked with anxiety over the possible spread of the virus, might desperately look to science to save the day. “It’s a very human reaction,” said Harland Dorrinson, a prominent anti-science activist from Springfield, Missouri. “If you put them under enough stress, perfectly rational people will panic and start believing in science.”" - Jessie from Bookmarklet
"Additionally, he worries about a “slippery slope” situation, “in which a belief in science leads to a belief in math, which in turn fosters a dangerous dependence on facts.” At the end of the day, though, Dorrinson hopes that such a doomsday scenario will not come to pass. “Time and time again through history, Americans have been exposed to science and refused to accept it,” he said. “I pray that this time will be no different.”" - Jessie

Ebola situation is sorta kinda getting fucking scary.
I don't get it. Why are you scared? Of what? - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Amen Mary! Stephen, it only takes one breach of protocol to harm many. - Janet from FFHound!
It's possible to be scared of something without it being a direct threat to you or your community. The idea that Ebola could devastate millions of people in West Africa so quickly is pretty frightening. - Johnny from iPhone
I'm pretty sure that ebola in the US won't spread at the same rate as in West Africa, but it was disturbing to see how quickly the whole "We're the US - we got this 100% covered" argument fell apart. - Brian Johns
On the other hand, what could possibly go wrong? We spend more money on healthcare than any other nation and that's led to a system with full coverage and perfect outcomes for all, regardless of social, racial, educational, or economic status. Right? Right??? On second thought, maybe we are boned. - Brian Johns
There is certainly a "over there" mentally going on in countries like the US and Australia. When the situation is looked at on a global scale, it's definitely a thing. Africa, Europe and Asia are all land linked. It's easy to sit here on my island and go "at least they'll catch them arriving by plane" but considering the incubation period is up to 21 days, an infected carrier could spread it to other parts of the African continent or Europe/Asia without stepping in an airport. - Johnny from iPhone
I'm scared of it now, because of the sheer idiocy of the hospital in TX. They exposed us to so much danger, they broke the seal of "American Health care will prevent Africa-like outbreaks". I'm stunned that the hospital *ignored* protocol for days (they didn't wear head protection, no goggles, no full facial protection!!!). And then the CDC, assuming they followed protocol, said the... more... - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
What's scary to me is not knowing if or how many people are moving about the US unknowingly contagious. There are few places in the USA untouched by global travel, so I figured it was only a matter of time before we saw it here. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
And going off what Rudi said, the protocol breach may not be that dangerous for Ebola but if something as serious as Ebola gets that lack of seriousness applied to it, what's the strength of other protocols for less deadly but more contagious diseases. - Johnny from iPhone
I just don't understand why a travel ban is not instituted. That could alleviate some of the problems. Also, the CDC just put out a warning to NYC that they should be on the alert for Ebola since they are a common port of entry for West Africans. - Mary Carmen
Here's one argument against the travel ban: http://blogs.cdc.gov/global... - Brian Johns
I'm not really convinced by that. I think the airport screenings are bullshit. Checking for a fever is not a guarantee and people may not show signs. If what the nurses' union is stating is true, then we are not doing everything we can to prevent more cases in the US. Either way, the gov't needs to get it's shit together. - Mary Carmen
Also, the house committee hearing today was redonk. - Mary Carmen
Working in imaging, usually step two of an ER visit- I cannot begin to tell you how many times Universal Precautions failed us. People are being triaged on a fast pace and tests ordered prior to results and waiting. At least three times a week we find we had a MRSA patient and we were unaware, hence no precautions. - Janet

I can't believe the campus doesn't have a no weapons policy. I wouldn't stand in the front of a room in that environment. - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
The university is saying that they're not allowed to prevent anyone with a concealed carry permit from bringing a weapon (and the police refused to implement pat-downs or metal detectors, even for people without permits, citing the same law.) http://www.deseretnews.com/article... - Jennifer Dittrich
I saw that. I just don't understand *how* a law is allowed to exist without seemingly essential safegaurds. Even the freaking wild west made folks leaves their guns at the doors of the saloon! - RudĩϐЯaЯïan

Media react to NBC News' Dr. Nancy Snyderman violating Ebola quarantine - LA Times
"Dr. Nancy Snyderman is taking the heat from the media after she and members of her NBC News crew violated a mandatory three-week quarantine after returning from West Africa. Snyderman, who is NBC News' chief medical correspondent, recently returned from Africa after reporting on the devastating Ebola outbreak there. One of her cameramen, Ashoka Mukpo, tested positive for the virus, and the rest of Snyderman's crew agreed to a 21-day voluntary quarantine. However, according to reports from TMZ and Planet Princeton, Snyderman and members of her crew were spotted outside the Peasant Grill restaurant in Hopewell, N.J., on Oct. 9. After the reports, the New Jersey Department of Health made the quarantine, which is to last until Oct. 22, mandatory." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet

Couple Had Sex In Back Seat Of Police Cruiser | The Smoking Gun
"After being arrested, a Wisconsin couple had sex in the back of a police cruiser, an encounter that was interrupted when a cop heard the woman “begin to moan loudly” while her legs were “touching the ceiling” of the vehicle, according to a criminal complaint. Heather Basten, 29, and Travis Husnik, 33, were taken into custody by Oconto County Sheriff’s Department deputies after their car was spotted drifting into oncoming traffic on August 3. During questioning by cops, Basten, who was driving, and Husnik admitted they had been drinking. A deputy noted that there were two open cans of Busch Light on the car's floorboard, and that Husnik “indicated one been belonged to him and the other to Heather.” Husnik, who was on probation, was handcuffed and placed in the rear of a police cruiser. He was soon joined there by Basten, who was driving without a license and had a used syringe in her purse. Basten reportedly said that she “used to shoot up meth with it.” While subsequently... more... - Jessie from Bookmarklet

Just submitted this via the Tivo Pokerstats bug email address, but don't know if anyone reads it:
Now that I've finally (after 8 long years) made it on the Top 10 EV chart (and therefore this comment is no longer self serving), it's a bug that this chart has people on it who haven't played in years and only played for a relatively few number of games. I get that we want new people to show up -- it's good for the game and it gives people something to shoot for. But we should also get some of the more frequent players on the list. I'd suggest that if someone hasn't played for a year (or some reasonably long time), they come off the list. They can always come back on if they become active again. Separately, we should consider if five entries is enough to get on the board. Seems like that's too soon and it should be more, like 10 or 12. But I don't feel as strongly that this is a bug -- it's more important that the chart have active players on it. thanks! \Steve P.S. Another possibility is to expand the list to top 20 or something larger than 10. That is not mutually exclusive to the two suggestions above. - Steve
This isn't a new ask, but good to hear there's several people who are interested in this change :) It's on my list of things to do. Thanks for the feedback! - Jonathan Disher
+1 - Ken Gidley
Statistically speaking, there will be big swings even after 10-12 tournaments played. Having played tournament chess in my younger days, it took 20 games before a "provisional" rating became "official", i.e., a fair indicator of a player's ability. I suggest we use the same threshold of 20 tournaments as well for the group stats. Definitely +1 on listing players active within the last year and expanding the list to top 20. - Leonard Loscutoff

Solar Panels Cost Less Than Electricity From Natural Gas - http://planetsave.com/2014...
Solar Panels Cost Less Than Electricity From Natural Gas
"A new report out from Lazard tells us something those who follow the wind and solar industries already knew to some degree: large-scale solar and wind power projects can now compete purely on cost with natural gas power plants (as well as coal and nuclear, of course). Solar panels cost less than electricity from any other source in some regions, and the cost continues to fall." - Sean McBride from Bookmarklet
"Worth noting is that this has long been the case with renewable energy subsidies, but the point of the report is that it’s also the case without those subsidies in a growing number of places, even while fossil fuels retain their subsidies." - Sean McBride
good news. I read a few years ago how RV's were using panels atop their mobile units, enabling them to go off the grid and power a refrigerator for much longer than previous battery charging times. These improvements are allowing us to go farther away from oil supplied vehicles and machines. BMW has a electric scooter, good for 60+ miles. http://www.designboom.com/technol... - Chu_
