The Health Care Blog: It Slices, It Dices, It Fleeces
  of a bloated and sick American media.  The portmanteau term “ infomercial” is clearly an oxymoron describing the contradiction of programs that are both hosted and devoured by morons.  The fact that infomercials are even allowed by the FCC is a sign of the advanced dry rot in our American entertainment, economic and regulatory systems. The FCC, according to one gadfly, now stands for “Forget Catching Criminals.”  It appears that after decades of exporting our innovation, manufacturing and customer service, the dregs of commerce have reached new lows where 30 minute advertisements fill vacant ... market research, surveys and trends

The Volokh Conspiracy - McCain Campaign Response to Obama Speech:
Immediately after Obama concluded his acceptance speech, the McCain campaign release a statement calling the speech "misleading" and providing a list of seven allegedly misleading claims made by Obama. McCain's people probably should have spent a bit more time on the response rather than rushing it out the door, because much of this rebuttle doesn't make sense at all (the claims aren't the type that are even subject to being misleading) and much of the rest is pretty unconvincing. Out of seven allegations of "misleading claims," by my count, only one really hits its target. It is a pretty ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

The sun emits two types of ultraviolet (UV) radiation that penetrates the ozone layer. Most sunscreen products protect against just one kind — ultraviolet B rays — which can cause sunburns. But most products do not protect against ultraviolet A rays, which are responsible for wrinkles — and skin cancer. The truth is, sunscreen manufacturers aren’t going to tell you what their product won't protect ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
