Tasso Azevedo: Hopeful lessons from the battle to save rainforests
That fact is not being played down Libor, but if you start throwing to many variables at a cause you confuse people and it brings up the old case where to many people just think they are crazy activists that have no real purpose and without the people you have no chance at winning. Thanks to big business and government ignorance and the ease at which it is for big business to pay off governments the problem has to be kept simple. Otherwise we lose the public interest and in the end we lose period and then it is not going to matter what the trade-off appears to be.

Asha de Vos: Why you should care about whale poo
I completely agree with what Don said, if the activists would curb their passion (and I am not saying many don't) and work with other organizations and fishermen to educate them on the effects and repercussions of their actions a balance can be made. However when I watch Whale Wars and the blatant arrogance of the Japan Government and those that were going down into the southern ocean under the false pretense that they was somehow doing good when it was for pure profit I am disgusted. Thankfully the world court came to the right conclusion and hopefully they will not be back this year, or any year for that matter! Now we need to attack them on their annual ritual of killing (I call it murder) dolphins!!!

Joe Landolina: This gel can make you stop bleeding instantly
Our soldiers need this now but we have to wait for bureaucrats to pass this as something safe to be used on humans? What troubles me is the applications this is used for is for someone that will die unless something like this is used. My question then is, why do we have to wait for policy that was designed to protect us in order to approve something where the victim will otherwise die? Makes me wonder why we have to wait a year???

Ethan Nadelmann: Why we need to end the War on Drugs
I think one of the biggest driving forces on both sides of this debate is ignorance. We seem to think that outlawing something is somehow supposed to eliminate the problem when the fact is all we are successful at doing is giving the drugs free advertisement. Is Ethan's ideas going to work? I don't think anyone can answer that, but the fact is what we are doing now is not!

Meaghan Ramsey: Why thinking you're ugly is bad for you
I found it ironic that all we needed to do in regard to peer pressure was to teach them how to deal with it. I went to that girls YouTube video and saw for myself what these punks are saying and it was apparent to me that a huge part of this movement needs to be about bringing these trash mouthed punks into court and charging them accordingly! Why are we just setting here with the attitude that these punks exist and not talking about how to put a stop to it? Peer pressure is a big part of why these people think they are ugly and the solution always seems to be we need to accept it. NO we need to take action against it and while we are showing these people they are not ugly we need to prosecute the trash talkers that are truly ugly and make them pay dearly for their actions!

Marco Tempest: The electric rise and fall of Nikola Tesla
Thats always the end of the argument, we just give up and give in. Way to go Nate, you are a valuable part of the 99%, keep up the good work! Its not jealousy, it is viewing the real problem with open eyes and seeing all the potential that mankind has being swallowed up and your final paragraph is the root of this argument and has nothing to do with jealousy. Your idea that we should only demonize the results of the 1% and not the individuals or corporations behind them is truly bewildering to me.

Marco Tempest: The electric rise and fall of Nikola Tesla
Mans greed and the lust for power are the two things that have and will continue to suppress all mankind. Until society as a whole will stand together against the 1% and demands a world free from financial obligation and tell them that knowledge should not be a commodity we have to buy, we will continue to wallow in intellectual darkness where only a handful of men control everything while the rest of the world lives in poverty, slaves to the greed of the putrid few!

Kenneth Cukier: Big data is better data
I am going to side with they are far more complex. In fact in the days before computers the weather man (you know, the meteorologist that had a degree) could predict the weather with a very high percentage of accuracy. It was not until the advent of computer modeling did this all get lost. That was also the time when there was no more need for a trained/skilled meteorologist and anyone could be the weather man.
