The Truth about The American Drug War

 The War on Drugs

June 14, 2010

Since 1970, $33 billion has been spent marketing drug prevention campaigns to school kids. However, from 1970, the decrease in drug use among high school students is still 0%. In reality, the increase in Americans who will try drugs this year compared to 1970 is 10 million. Someone is arrested for violating the drug law every 17 seconds, and 37 million people have been arrested in the US for drug crimes. The total amount spent on those arrests comes to $121 billion. As the numbers of drug users increases, the numbers of visits to the doctor will correlate, especially in the near future. Medical billing and coding specialists are needed by all doctors, which means that this is a profession that will not become obsolete, but rather the demand for it is perpetually growing. Furthermore, medical billing and coding specialists are needed to aid millions of Americans involved with drugs.

Can a Pill Make You Smarter?

A series of new drugs promises to increase our productivity and focus.

By Joanne Chen

A series of new drugs promises to increase our productivity and focus.

I would have made the perfect poster child for the “Just Say No” campaign. Black coffee — lots of it — is my only vice. I militantly oppose tobacco, sleeping pills, and excessive alcohol. I assert a defiant Non! to marijuana, cocaine, and steroids (not that anyone has ever offered me any). Somehow, I made it through prep school and college among the most prudish of friends. To me, anyone who engaged in chemical enhancements was a slacker or a cheater, and most certainly someone I didn’t know.

But then I discovered Smart Drugs. Crack for nerds.

Movies – "Gonzo"

Hunter Thompson and the Writer

By Roadjunky, Posted Feb 25, 2009

Fear and loathing is a choice.

I went to see Gonzo recently, the new documentary based on the life and work of Hunter S. Thompson, the father of gonzo journalism. Johnny Depp read aloud the words by Thompson featured in the film, just as he had acted them in Terry Gilliam’s adaptation of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, and interviews with the likes of dsfvdvdsvfvfdvfd (editor of the magazine, Rolling Stone), Jimmy Carter and Ralph Steadman, as well as with his son and ex-wives, made Gonzo a steady, credible documentary that explores the man and the myth with guts and humor.

We get to see footage of Hunter as a brash young journalist arguing with Hell’s Angels who didn’t appreciate his book about them that propelled him to fame, Hunter running for Sheriff in Aspen and Hunter on the political scene as he mercilessly covered the 1972 political campaign. We learn about the edge that he brought to journalism and what kind of a difference his words made to a generation.

Judge Orders YouTube to Give All User Histories to Viacom Threat Level from Wired.com

Judge Orders YouTube to Give All User Histories to Viacom

By Ryan Singel EmailJuly 02, 2008 | 7:16:54 PMCategories: Copyrights and Patents  

Youtubelogo2 Google will have to turn over every record of every video watched by YouTube users, including users’ names and IP addresses, to Viacom, which is suing Google for allowing clips of its copyright videos to appear on YouTube, a judge ruled Wednesday.

Viacom wants the data to prove that infringing material is more popular than user-created videos, which could be used to increase Google’s liability if it is found guilty of contributory infringement.

Viacom filed suit against Google in March 2007, seeking more than $1 billion in damages for allowing users to upload clips of Viacom’s copyright material. Google argues that the law provides a safe harbor for online services so long as they comply with copyright takedown requests.

Although Google argued that turning over the data would invade its users’ privacy, the judge’s ruling (.pdf) described that argument as “speculative” and ordered Google to turn over the logs on a set of four tera-byte hard drives.

The judge also turned Google’s own defense of its data retention policies — that IP addresses of computers aren’t personally revealing in and of themselves, against it to justify the log dump.

The Electronic Frontier Foundation has already reacted, calling the order a violation of the Video Privacy Protection act that “threatens to expose deeply private information.”

The order also requires Google to turn over copies of all videos that it has taken down for any reason.

Viacom also requested YouTube’s source code, the code for identifying repeat copyright infringement uploads, copies of all videos marked private, and Google’s advertising database schema.

Those requests were denied in whole, except that Google will have to turn over data about how often each private video has been watched and by how many persons.
