States permitting medical marijuana also have lower opioid death rates: study  - NY Daily News - http://www.nydailynews.com/life-st...
"The 13 states allowing medical marijuana from 1999 to 2010 showed fewer overdoses and deaths from Vicodin, OxyContin and other similar drugs. Researchers think it might be because people on opioids switch to marijuana to reduce pain." - Me from Bookmarklet
I wonder how much is straight up switches to marijuana, and how much is fallout from that - just not having those medications prescribed, and thus in the house for the intended person or someone else to use. - Jennifer Dittrich

"After slogging through 7 years of lackluster prequels, the possibility of returning to the Star Wars world with the original cast and promise of better storytelling gets us really, really exciting. Which is probably why these fan-imagined posters got us incredibly excited. Just look at them!" - Me from Bookmarklet

How to phase in remote workers for small businesses | ZDNet
"Telecommuting, also referred to as working remotely, started a few years ago in a small way but has grown steadily. Having some workers based at home has benefits for both the employee and company if handled correctly. (Image: James Kendrick/ZDNet) While it seems a simple process to allow some employees to work at home, it's not without complications that can be minimized with proper planning. Setting remote workers up properly is vital to making the program work well." - Me from Bookmarklet

Mythbusters “Build Team” Leaving the Show After 10 Years | The Mary Sue - http://www.themarysue.com/mythbus...
"Last night the season finale of Mythbusters aired, and it ended with a surprise message from hosts Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman. In the above video Savage and Hyneman announce that their “Build Team,” comprised of Kari Byron, Grant Imahara, and Tory Belleci, are leaving the show. It’s a bit of a surprise for fans. The reason given in the video is that the show is going back to its “origins” with just Savage and Hyneman. The outgoing team made similarly vague announcements on Twitter last night." - Me from Bookmarklet

Whats the point of a large wine glass if you don't fill it up to the rim?
It seems, to me at least, the only way to make any government changes (local police, state troopers, etc..) is to have businesses put pressure on them. The governments (local, state and federal) don't care for any of the individual citizens. Only the corporations. Thats the pressure point to squeeze to make any government changes. JMHO

Don Pardo, Longtime Saturday Night Live Announcer, Dead at 96 | TVLine
"Veteran television and radio announcer Dominick “Don” Pardo, best known as the voice of Saturday Night Live, has died. He was 96. Pardo’s daughter, Paula, confirmed the news to CBS Radio. Pardo retired from NBC in 2004, but continued to provide the introductions for SNL — most recently, pre-recording them from his home in Arizona. He had only missed one season of SNL — the show’s seventh — giving him a longer tenure than even Lorne Michaels (who stepped away for five seasons)." - Me from Bookmarklet

I find I need a mac app tool that will shrink apps to the side of the monitor that still shows what is going on with that app. When I click on it, it expands the window to normal so i can work on it. Does anyone know of a tool that would do this?
Right now I am using a transparent tool that only makes the window opaque when I work on it, otherwise its transparent on the side and I have to arrange the windows in a way that works for me. - Me
If you can't find that, how about a second monitor, 4k, set to non-retina mode so that all the windows you move over to that monitor are tiny? ;) - Amit Patel
If I could afford a 4k monitor... yeah.. I would still probably need it.. but it would be nice. - Me

Texas Governor Rick Perry indicted by grand jury | KXAN.com
"A grand jury has handed up an indictment against Gov. Rick Perry in connection with the investigation into an effort to force Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg to resign. At the center of the issue is a complaint about intimidation stemming from Perry’s threat to veto of $3.7 million in state funding to the Public Integrity Unit run by Lehmberg’s office. The threat came after she pleaded guilty to drunk driving and served a 45-day sentence; Perry called on her to step down but she refused to resign her position. Perry then vetoed the funding for the PIU. A grand jury was called to determine whether or not Perry broke the law when he threatened to veto the funding. As a result they issued indictments on two felony charges: abuse of official capacity and coercion of public servant. If found guilty on the charges, Perry could be sentenced to a maximum 109 years in prison. An indictment indicates the grand jury believes the state has a strong enough case to send to trial... more... - Me from Bookmarklet

Cool Tools – Swivel Straight Christmas Tree Stand
"One Christmas tradition I was happy to discard what was the annual fight with the tree stand. My brother and I would wrestle the tree into the kind of old stand that uses bolts to screw into the trunk to ostensibly stabilize it. Being the younger of the two, I had the task of holding the tree while lying on the floor after it had been impaled on the stand’s spike and then turning the three bolts into the soft pine in rotation, all in an effort to try to have the tree stand straight. Between the griping and groaning and being covered with pitch, this was a major operation that often had temporary results, leading to guy wires from the tree to the wall to keep it upright. And then my mother bought a Swivel Straight Stand. 20 years later, having inherited the stand, putting the Christmas tree up is a breeze.The mechanism attaches to the tree separately from the stand, so you can do it outdoors before you bring the tree in. You then plop it into the stand and — voila! — the tree is... more... - Me from Bookmarklet

Where Did All the Entry-Level Jobs Go? - WSJ - http://online.wsj.com/article...
Where Did All the Entry-Level Jobs Go? - WSJ
"Companies bruised by the recession have stayed lean by automating and outsourcing core functions while slashing training budgets and payrolls. But in an effort to cut costs, some companies also have cut entry-level jobs that serve as a crucial first step on the path to a professional career. And others have made the responsibilities for first-timers more sophisticated, raising the bar for new graduates, who are expected to arrive job-ready from day one. These developments may be making it more difficult for some young adults to gain a foothold in the labor market, economists say. The unemployment rate for people 20- to 24-years-old is falling as the economy recovers, but remained at a historically high 11.3% in July. Young adults lacking college degrees are having an especially hard time finding entry-level jobs." - Me from Bookmarklet
Project I am currently on has more interns doing the actual work as oppose to real employees of the company who are multi tasking across at the least 4 major projects each. Poor business management is rampant in the valley. - Me
I've noticed a lot of entry-level jobs have been turned into internships, which is crap since so many of them are also unpaid. People are doing for free what I could barely tolerate to do at $29K/yr. That and changing everything to "contractor" jobs, yet require the "contractors" to work just like employees with benefits? Shady. - Anika
The project I am on does pay its interns something, low for what it take to live in the valley, but they pay. - Me
It is actually cheaper to outsource to freelancers on oDesk at the same hourly rate you would have paid for an entry level position, since on oDesk, you only pay for the actual time spent working, not the time present, when a worker would be doing other non-work related things (such as booting up their PC, fetching coffee, farting around on Facebook, chatting with co-workers, roaming... more... - April Russo

Hard Magic (Grimnoir Chronicles, #1) by Larry Correia — Reviews, Discussion, Bookclubs, Lists
"Jake Sullivan is a licensed Private Eye—with a seriously hardboiled attitude. He also possesses raw magical talent and the ability to make objects in his vicinity light as a feather or as heavy as depleted uranium, all with a magical thought. It's no wonder the G-men turn to Jake when they need someone to go after a suspected killer who's been knocking off banks in a magic-enhanced crime spree. Problems arise when Jake discovers the bad girl behind the robberies is an old friend, and he happens to know her magic is just as powerful as his, and the Feds have plunged Jake into a secret battle between powerful cartels of magic-users--a cartel whose ruthless leaders have decided that Jake is far too dangerous to live. . . ." - Me from Bookmarklet

The game controller that trains your pelvic floor muscles - http://www.engadget.com/2014...
The game controller that trains your pelvic floor muscles
"The high-tech pelvic floor trainer space just became more competitive. Remember kGoal? Well, a Kickstarter campaign's looking to fund the production of a similar device called Skea (short for Smart Kegel Exercise Aid), which boasts something kGoal doesn't offer. See, Skea's creators want to make kegel exercises more enjoyable, so they added a gaming aspect to it, turning the device into a kegel-exerciser-and-game-controller-in-one. If the start-up does raise the $38,000 it needs to go into production, a Skea package will come with an iOS or Android game called Alice in Continent (these exercises are supposed to solve incontinence in women, if you're unaware). It's an endless runner with all the usual obstacles, and to jump over them, the user needs to squeeze Skea with their pelvic floor muscles. As one tester said: "It's like playing Temple Run with Fitbit. Just that I don't use fingers but use my pelvic muscles!" Also, when the user squeezes the device, it... vibrates to confirm that she's doing things right." - Me from Bookmarklet
