    This site looks good for info on causes, types and effects of brain injury ... summaries of different studies and some discussion re: differences in findings/conclusions.* http://www.brainline.org/content/2008/08/repetitive-head-injury-syndrome_pageall.html * Something to keep in mind: subject selection bias in studies. There's some...

    Am now reading BBC news reports ... Damned, this is horrible no matter when it happens. But now? Could do even more damage. Stay safe, stay sane....

    I'd prefer a (better) screening process for those seeking power. Psych assessments have become routine HR practices making it hard to argue that such a widely used corporate tool cannot be applied where it matters most -- our duly elected...

    There are different types of head trauma that might occur at the same time as the result of one accident. If you're thrown off your bike and land on your helmeted head you could suffer a serious concussion (injury #1)...

    Re: '"Krugman healthcare costs evidence" and you'll immediately get a bunch. Maybe he should have linked to some evidence in this one too, but hey, it's just one blog post of thousands.' Fair enough ... will google this phrase. Not...

    Re: '... a psychological issue where you only come to expect certain behaviour on the roads, so anything that moves contrary to that is not even considered.' Add to your list: 1-Growing number of ADHD folks ambulating around unsupervised (because...

    Re: 'Krugman has a good summary here:' Have read Krugman's comment which illustrates my frustration with some economists: they seldom (if ever) provide specific evidence*. Krugman had an opportunity to point to several different healthcare models and show a direct...

    Agree - 'Maybe we economists should cite Arrow more often when we try to explain what we do, or to be more accurate, what we should be trying to do. ... '... He was an ideal role model.' Like to...

    Hmmm ... Google does not pull up any definition for 'doddles'. (Is this another British colloquialism?) Given the sample components you mentioned, guess this means that the London subway extension project was easy because it only had to dig through...

    First - thanks very much! Have just read the first two links and intend to read more of Arrow's work once I've exhausted available YT videos of his lectures and interviews. Given the recent success of bio-pix at the cinema...

    Re: 'The other problem is not so much making holes in the rock underneath, but doing that while people are living in the houses about.' Recently saw a doc about the expansion of London's underground (subway) - very expensive and...

    Have been watching science-popularizing scientists lately and this one really struck a few chords. David Suzuki (PhD Zoology) host of the longest running science TV show in Canada (The Nature of Things). In this video he discusses then-recent Canadian and...

    Re: ' ... but what I'm seeing here isn't sane behavior on a number of fronts.' Can't find it now but recall reading that the UK has a 'sane-clause' in its constitution as grounds for dismissing an elected official....

    Re: 'Einstein: In as much as the laws of mathematics are accurate, they do not reflect reality; in as much as they reflect reality, they are not accurate.' Great quote! Agree somewhat with both you and Richard ... but also...

    Neither news post makes me feel particularly warm and fuzzy on the free trade thing. Everything is still up in the air and open to re-negotiation at any time. All we've had is talk about creating new agreements, there's no...

    If May can't get a deal with the EU that benefits the UK, can't think why she thinks she can get one with DT. (At this time, feel that the EU is many orders more transparent and sane.) Re: 'The...

    Not joking - just fascinated by new ways of building as well as re-purposing of old structures....

    True, Edinburgh airport appears nicely situated and Edinburgh would be on anyone's itinerary when visiting Scotland. Still, would be nice to have more choice in direct flights, e.g., my local international airport currently has only 4 daily flights with 'only...

    Since discussion has moved to highways, alternate transport, wobbly knees, etc. how about how housing might get affected in Scotland following Brexit esp. if Scotland doesn't join the EU and needs to fly solo, i.e., increased unemployment, declining GDP, etc....

    Re: '... will add to the confusion and increase the stress on May.' Didn't know that your typical voting Brit thought of the US as their white knight. Saw some figures showing that the UK-US trade has increased to the...

    Please provide info re: what authority the US has over how the EU chooses its members. Have found an unsettled US-EU tax dispute (APPL, insurance - finance), Internet domain naming rights are being moved to the EU, a new trade...

    Quebec could be a model for would-like-to-separate states but would need similar circumstances and leaders: a strong central gov't (PETrudeau Liberals) who personally and ideologically understood what the Quebec issues were (i.e., Francophones were treated as second class citizens within...

    From what I've read it's because the Eastern Europeans have nicely fitted into the beginning of the EU market/production model supply chain. Greece OTOH is not a source of cheap skilled labor; nor is it a user of cheap labor;...

    Nope - the Brits have a history of re-arranging every country they've entered without asking and usually without even taking more than a superficial inventory of that country's assets and needs. Canada left British direct rule peacefully when Britain had...

    Re: 'People who are frightened and under the lash of austerity tend to vote conservatively (not necessarily vote Conservative)' Joining the EU is automatically adopting death-spiral austerity if your economy isn't as strong and similarly constructed as Germany's. [Surprised that...

    So, your politicians don't read, watch or listen to news - interesting. Are they all on FB? Maybe 'alt-news' has been around the UK much longer than in the US: pre-test the concept on Brexit, followed by the US election....
