The Skinny on Obesity
by John P. Reisman published Sep 28, 2012 last modified Oct 08, 2012 11:46 AM
The obesity epidemic as a proportion of human population has effectively gone off the charts so to speak. Statistically that is. The past 30 to 40 years have shown a more than statistically significant departure from the norm. So, the question that arises is, why? If something in our food consumption has changed then what is it? This University of California TV series explores some of the latest science and understanding which reveals insights in to the systemic changes that are clearly affecting our health and in fact the weight of the issue can be measured in more than pounds..., it can be measured in cost, quality of life, and may even be altering the health of our genetic health in relation to normative assessments.

Editorial: How intelligent are people who vote? Or how intelligent should people be to vote? Or maybe that's not the issue? Maybe the issue is how smart are people being about their vote? Well, what kind of intelligence are we talking about? Maybe that makes a difference? Maybe not? Well, it probably does...

How to Build a Swift Boat: Deficit Spending
by John P. Reisman published Oct 27, 2012 last modified Oct 28, 2012 11:30 PM
Ads that appeal to our patriotism are hard to ignore. Centrists and Centrism, like other political ideals, hold to particular values, have hero's, have convictions about how we examine the data. The perspective of the Centrist Party is based on evidence. Centrism strongly supports the tenets of traditional conservatism as well as responsibility models held from more centrist democratic concerns. Modern Republicans/neo-conservatives are too liberal in their support for corporatism that feeds corporate socialism, as opposed to supporting the principle of government of the people, by the people, for the people. And the Democratic Party is too liberal in its 'ideals' about how much the government can do or spend on these ideals. Centrism remains about pragmatic and well reasoned consideration of facts within the context of short AND long-term consequences.

Planned Obsolescence
by John P. Reisman published Oct 29, 2012 last modified Oct 29, 2012 06:00 PM
Planned obsolescence is the purposeful planning of limiting the useful life of a product or design. The purpose is to stimulate and perpetuate product consumption. This has short term benefits for companies in their profitability and long term consequences for resource capacity as continued consumption leads to resource depletion in many cases. The only exception would be in how renewable or sustainable a product line is.

An Attack on Free Speech, in California?
by John P. Reisman published Sep 12, 2013 last modified Oct 12, 2013 05:21 PM
Word banning. Let's hope it does not become a trend. Banning words to control the message steps beyond the protections from 'hate speech', threats, and ad hominem attacks (to the person). It lies in a category that is obtuse enough that those committing such a mistake would likely miss the fault.

Children Playing With Fire...
by John P. Reisman published Oct 19, 2013 last modified Oct 21, 2013 04:25 PM
One might think that children should not play with fire, but they do. Sometimes they burn their finger, and once in a while they burn down a house. But normally they learn not to get too close to the flame, and fire can be dangerous. But the Republicans didn't just risk burning a finger. They risked the whole house. They did it intentionally, irresponsibly, and apparently without rational forethought of ramifications. Will they learn and not do this again?
