The U.S. should have 53 states because it's a prime number and can't be
divided. Then we would truly be one nation, indivisible.

This study is popping up in a lot of press right now. But what it actually says isn't that weight loss is not important. Rather, it says that the typical result of trying to lose weight with dieting is weight cycling, which is more harmful than not losing that weight in the first place. So better to focus on exercise, which has less downsides.

It's also unclear to me if they're able to fully account for the fact that people unable to exercise are probably less healthy.

“Sun Yuan and Peng Yu: Can’t Help Myself”

This would have been so much better if the robot moved more efficiently; even a panicking robot shouldn't be flailing about.


tl;dr: one of the HCQ trials use folate tablets as the placebo... Which is a real WTF: why would you use something that potentially has a benefit rather than a true placebo with no active ingredients? Purpose-made placebo tablets are widely available.

COVIDSafe: Australia’s digital contact tracing failure

Interesting read. But frankly, the real lesson to be learned here is these systems are evil. This researchers should have never helped the government make them better. By doing so they just enabled the next result: even worse, mandatory, contact tracing schemes not protected by privacy legislation.
