"@katadsic9 I've been using Xylitol for a while, but it does upset my digestion. Remember, I have gallstone attacks and acid reflux, so Xylitol is something I take very lightly. I've been using it for years because my wife's early onset osteoporosis caused by her breast cancer treatments years ago made her switch to Xylitol to build bone mass. I hate Stevia. I don't like the aftertaste. Bottom line, I take my coffee with non-fat milk and that's it. If I need a sugar hit, a bit of honey goes a long way. But that's all.   Thanks for stopping by!" - Michel Fortin

Re: Church Votes Against Interracial Couples Becoming Members - http://www.patheos.com/blogs...
"When I shared this news from HuffPo, someone disagreed with me. Even though this was disgusting on the part of the church, this fellow said, it is irrelevant as it is within the church's right, as a private entity, to do as they wish. But I reminded him that it's certainly not. Like Hitch often says, if churches get government tax breaks, they are therefore subsidized by public funds, ergo they are public entities. Not private. And as such, by law they must abide by public policy -- racial discrimination being one of them. Case in point: Bob Jones University v. United States Supreme Court ruling about banning interracial marriages: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/B... Educational and religious institutions fall under the banner of that ruling. Which is actually a clarification of an 1861 ruling whereby charitable organizations that receive tax exemptions *must* abide by, if not at least never contradict, public policy." - Michel Fortin

10 Predictions for the News Media in 2011 - http://mashable.com/2010...
Very interesting predictions. Especially about growth in leaks sites, social media vs. search, "nichified" news, and interactive TV. This is going to be an interesting year if any of these will come true. - Michel Fortin

Re: List Management, Fake Endorsements, and The Syndicate - http://www.ryanhealy.com/syndica...
"Antone, I agree with you that this is smart business up to a point. For example, that's why many associations exist. But you nailed it when you said: "Agreeing to a pricing scheme and taking products off the market during other launches to reduce competition." I'm far from being a lawyer, but this is exactly what appears to be happening, here. But let me add another viewpoint... You said it's no problem if they join together to "time their product releases." That's probably where it starts to fall apart, because these are not releases. They are not even product launches, for that matter. They are close-ended sales events. They are deliberately priced high, and taken off the market after a period of time (often, through faux scarcity), to make room for the next "launch du month." The goal? To siphon as much money from the market as possible. Whether this is actually legal or not is arguable, and by arguable I mean in a court of law. But it does appear to be unethical -- at least, to..." - Michel Fortin
