Well, at that age I'd suggest he put it all in something that will keep him interested and excited. Maybe Tesla stock?

Yeah, this. If you want to get paid well you have to do something people recognize as your area of expertise. So: antennas, transmitters, receivers. The gimmick with Internet of Things is that [more]

Re: Senior Risk of Polypharmacy

I keep a "note" on my iPad called "medicines I take" which lists everything, including dosage and frequencies of each. My sister saw it and said, "Wow, that's great, and you always have it with you!"

Re: Senior Risk of Polypharmacy

I have an EXCEL spreadsheet that I use.

Perhaps a nit, but I'd reverse the chronology on the health history column. Current items are the most important and should therefore be at the top.

Re: Who's gaming the system?

For those who prefer the establishment in power of course you will say there is nothing rigged, but it is.

Kevin Drum at Mother Jones points out how the system actually is rigged... in Trump's favor so far.

Re: A New Low

Why in the world would people go out of their way to help someone who they can't stand the idea of being President?

Hillary the hawk

Kevin Drum is a political blogger at Mother Jones. I find him to be intelligent, genuine, and data-driven, all of which appeal to me. He's a Hillary supporter, but doesn't hesitate to ask hard questions. This is worth a read:

Re: Question for Sanders supporters

Are you still thinking that Bernie can get the nomination?

Much as I would like to see Bernie in the White House, at this point he doesn't have much of a chance. I'm distressed at his going negative, and I'm more distressed at [more]

Re: Hillary AND Goldman Sachs!

Then the Clinton campaign would have accused Sanders of snubbing the Pope.

First, no.

Second, one of the reasons I support Sanders is that he wouldn't have cared in the slightest.

Re: Hillary AND Goldman Sachs!

Again, what was he supposed to do?

As a Sanders supporter I'd have been much happier if he'd politely declined. I can't think of anything good about it. I think it showed poor judgment.

Re: The Statin Stumper

Re: Where are we going?

Intelligent machines take intelligence to upkeep and improve. I think the view that all human activities will be obsoleted as a bit pessimistic.

Re: Where are we going?

From a practical standpoint it almost is mandatory now. If you don't have a college degree your future is bleak. Your earning potential is almost nil.

Re: Poll: Choose my next car

The safest car on the road is the Tesla Model S. Yes, it's big and heavy, but that isn't really all that important. What is important is that it is engineered for safety from the ground up.
