    Physicians are influenced by marketing. That's no surprise. So are most consumers, as evidenced by television and radio commercials, billboards, pop up ads and targeted ads for drugs on your computer screen. Big Pharma markets not only to physicians, but also directly to consumers. In a recent Washington Post op-ed, Dr. Nicole Van Gronigen made the case that Big Pharma successfully influences physician prescribing behavior via marketing. Specifically, drug reps do with with free lunches provided by the pharmaceutical reps, or educational dinners at nice restaurants. She reported a JAMA study correlating industry-sponsored meals with increased promotion of branded medication...

    An odd thing began happening to my wife a few weeks ago. She was trying to hook up to our home wi-fi system and there was an available network called "FBI camera". I blew it off and told her it was probably one she accidentally saved while at a starbucks or something and someone was just using a "creative name" for their hotspot. The reason I believed that is that our home is several hundred yards from the nearest neighbor, and most of them don't have computers. Here is the weird part: I'm working from home today and when I...

    Tyreke Smith, a player attending Ohio State’s football camp, made quite the impression when he showed up on the Buckeye’s campus. However, it wasn’t for anything he did on the football field. Instead, it was for what he wore. Smith reported to camp wearing a T-shirt that said, “I hope I don’t get killed for being black today.” Smith explained his decision to wear the shirt to ElevenWarriors, a site which covers Ohio State football. Smith said, “I decided to wear the shirt because I wanted to bring attention to the epidemic of blacks being killed at an alarming rate....

    There has so far been no word from President Trump’s administration on whether the White House intends to host such an event this year. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has reportedly already said the State Department will break with recent tradition and not host a Ramadan reception, as it has done nearly annually for two decades. White House officials did not respond to repeated requests for comment.

    For generations, cross-referencing tombstones at the cemetery and vital records was required to unlock your lineage. But now, you can easily uncover some of the mystery of your family tree with DNA. Consumers like Larry Guernsey are giving the service as gifts. "I thought it would be a good Christmas present," Guernsey said. The $99 DNA test uses a saliva sample to trace family history. Here's how one company that provides the service, Ancestry, says it works: "A simple test can reveal an estimate of your ethnic mix… like if you're Irish or Scandinavian, or both." For Guernsey his curiosity...

    Not shockingly, the MSM and DC elites have come to the conclusion that the masses are too ignorant to realize what is afoot. Either that, or they have simply stopped caring what the masses think, at least they masses that disagree with the DC elites. What is going on here needs to be summarized from soup to nuts. I have seen bits and pieces of this tossed around here and there, but never an overall view of the coup that is playing out before our eyes. Some talking heads call it an "attempt to de-legitiimize the President" or some such...

    The Russians don't like either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton. Trump is pro-US military, reckless and quick to anger. Hillary is combative, arrogant and quick to secretly seethe. The Russian ambassador to the US has two main objectives: 1. Keep the US from meddling in Syria 2. Keep the US from building up its military forces in Europe The Russians think Trump and Clinton both would meddle in Syria. The Russians fear Trump would build up US forces in Europe while Hillary would prefer to spend money on welfare instead of on the military. Therefore, given the two bad possibilities,...

    A 70-year-old man who said he robbed a Kansas City, Kansas, bank so he could get away from his wife blamed his actions on depression. A federal judge on Tuesday sentenced Lawrence John Ripple to home confinement and three years of supervised probation. Ripple went to the Bank of Labor, a block from police headquarters, last September. He gave a note to a teller saying he had a gun and was demanding money. After he was given it, Ripple waited for police.

    Security researchers have discovered a ransomware variant that targets Macs rather than Windows PCs. Although technically inferior to most current ransomware targeting Windows, it still encrypts or prevents access to victim's files, thereby causing real damage, according to researchers at Fortinet. MacRansom uses symmetric encryption with a hard-coded key to hijack files on compromised Macs. The ransomware only encrypts a maximum of 128 files, according to Fortinet's analysis. The malware is being offered through a ransomware-as-a-service delivery model so even the relatively clueless can try making money with the nasty. No coding experience is needed. Would-be crooks can contact the...
