Re: “Tennessee Black Caucus To Rally Tuesday For Marijuana Decriminalization

Typical GOP. They sing the praises of local government, until they don't like something a local government is doing. Then the authority of the state must be respected!

If the representative from Cottonmouth doesn't like it, he should stay out of Memphis and Nashville. There must be something he could do for a living besides mooching off the government.

Re: “Tennessee Black Caucus To Rally Tuesday For Marijuana Decriminalization

I wonder if the constituents who elected Mr. Lamberth are as clueless as he is about the meaning of the word 'unjust'? Because the current 'unjust' racial bias in the penal system for possession of small amounts of marijuana was the literal reason for this proposed change.

Re: “Three Thoughts on Memphis Tiger Football: Week 2 - Kansas

It was a great game Saturday, really enjoyed the win. Why is rock or rap music blared over the two bands for the football teams during short breaks? We were at a college football game not a concert.

Re: “Three Thoughts on Memphis Tiger Football: Week 2 - Kansas

Speaking of the stadium. It burns me up that the skyboxes are outlined in RED. It looks so bad. It would not be very much to bid out the work to change it to Tiger Blue.
You will notice next time.

Re: “Flyer Fall Fashion

There is actually a really strong Fashion-Billy movement going on in town, which this article for some reason or another goes out of it's way to pretend doesn't exist. You know, because extremely uncomfortable shoes are not a sign of a woman's insecurity or lack of self esteem.

Re: “U of M Wins $4M for Mobile Research

@B

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/P…

"Data security and privacy constitute the greatest challenges facing mHealth innovation, particularly
in a domain as sensitive as psychiatric and neurological health. Of the 600 most commonly
used mHealth apps, only 30% were shown to have a privacy policy [32]. The recent hacking and
randsomware attacks on several hospital systems demonstrate the reality that sensitive electronic
health data are vulnerable to a wide array of threats. The FDA oversees digital health cybersecurity
(see: http://goo.gl/RpjXev)."

This article on NIH.gov about the MD2K program seems to confirm all of my worst suspicions.

But wait, there's more:

"While the Precision Medicine
Initiative is initially focused on oncology, and mHealth applications currently leading the charge are
focused on cardiovascular disease and diabetes, mHealth may ultimately achieve its greatest gains by
taking aim at understanding, diagnosing, and treating disorders of the human brain."

So they are openly, openly, not hidden, not some sort of crazy conspiracy, but stating from day one their goal is to pose as cardiovascular health and cancer research, with the ultimate goal of actually monitoring mental health on a vast scale.

They even named the program mHealth. I wonder what that "M" stands for?

I didn't get this stuff on Infowars, this link goes straight to NIH.gov, the source listed in this article, and I found it searching specifically for the MD2k program.

Funny how I couldn't find this link on the site you listed.

Studying the history of the medicalization of deviation is a bit of a hobby of mine, as I work in medical billing and am appalled on a daily basis by how physicians use mental health diagnoses to punish "difficult" patients. I see many patients be diagnosed with "agitation" (a reasonable emotional response to the prospect of death/poor medical care) needlessly intubated and dosed with Haldol to keep them quiet until they can be dumped at the nearest mental ward.

This being particularly agitating for me personally, as after they go to the ward, their records are redacted, making reimbursing the physicians I bill for almost impossible when insurance requests medical records.

But hey, you're right B, rain is supposed to be warm in the summer time I guess. I don't think it's ever supposed to smell like ammonia, though, and there ain't a cloud in the sky. Lord knows you wouldn't piss down my back, though.

But on the bright side apok, just think about how many children on food stamps and welfare these clinics are preventing.

Move the zoo to Shelby Farms. Plenty of room. The zoo is no longer the crown jewel of Overton Park, it's the big problem. Plow up the parking lot and expand the greensward.

Listen apok, if we're going to be forced to bicycle everywhere, we'll have to put abortion clinics closer to where all the sex is happening.

These planned parenthood extermination centers are extremely unappealing to have in the neighborhood.

Re: “Triple A Title Tilt Tuesday at AutoZone Park

The weather is cooperating. Looks like it's going to be a good night. There's been a huge presale for this game and great promotions on top of that (many involving food [$1 hot dogs] and beer). Frank, while you continue to gush about Nashville, the attendance in the 2nd year of their new ballpark fell off 900 a game and is not even close to what AutoZone Park did when it was new.
As for us it's apparent the baseball and corporate community will be saying 'Thank You' tomorrow night.

Re: “Tigers 43, Kansas 7

I think the NCAA would break them if they tried. All the schools would have to act together, which they will never do, and any who try to break away would be cut off, surrounded, and dismantled.

But I think the SEC could well get so full of itself that it might try. At which point the NCAA would implement the dreaded playoff system. Which they should do anyway.

All that being said, I wish nothing but ill on the NCAA and the entire apparatus of exploitation. College athletics have a place and purpose. College football is unpaid minor league pro football. Some day some injured player is going to sue the NCAA and the NFL and win, and it will all come crashing down, and what emerges from the ruins will be better by far than what currently exists.

Speaking of, when can we start talking about the Tigers' national championship?

Re: “Tigers 43, Kansas 7

Or the NCAA will find itself irrelevant as the big football schools complete their takeover of all college athletics, which would include changing March Madness in order to make sure small schools can't compete in it any more. All while smearing a shit stain veneer of academics and amateur sports over the money grab.
