For more than half a century, the conventional wisdom among nutritionists and public health officials was that fat is dietary enemy number one – the leading cause of obesity and heart disease.

It appears the wisdom was off.

FTL: The child had vomited during a flight from Liberia to O'Hare, city health officials said. Upon landing, the child was screened by federal authorities and was found to have no other symptoms and no known risk of exposure. The child was taken to Lurie "out of an abundance of caution" and was undergoing observation in isolation.

Someone [was it Dawg?] posted a Sleeper clip yesterday that wasn't that far off. If you eat things higher in cholesterol your body won't produce as much, and the kind you eat is better than the kind your liver makes. It's also a precursor for testosterone (for men) and that makes you feel better too. The trick is to not take in too many calories.

Tampa is even better as I recall. If a storm makes it West of Key West, it's usually driven by the circulating current of the Bermuda High, and as such, the forces than propelled it West in the first place will continue to force it further West.

Has it been too dry to grow sufficient under-story to burn?

So no, there is no reason to believe that higher or lower velocity of money will lead to deflation or inflation. That’s not to say that the equation of exchange is not true. Of course it’s true. But you have to deep dive into the assumptions that its conclusions are based on to actually understand how useful it really is. And when we deep dive into Uncle Milton’s “hypothetical simple society” you find that many of the conclusions are based on a world that resembles nothing like our actual monetary system. And that is why so much of his economics has been proven void of value over the course of the last 30 years – it was based on a textbook world that made the math appear more relevant as opposed to the actual world we live in.

I don't necessarily agree with this, but there has been a lot of discussion of monetary velocity here, so I'm linking it...

Under a federal law known as civil forfeiture, the police can seize your assets if they believe they were obtained through illegal means — even if you haven't been convicted of a crime...

The practice recently attracted the attention of the comedian John Oliver. In a popular segment, Oliver suggested officers' motives for seizing cash might not be pure since the department gets to keep most of that cash.

"The question, 'do you have cash in the vehicle?' is surprisingly common in traffic stops," Oliver said. As one lawyer told the comedian, "It's really legalized robbery by law enforcement."
