I believe he meant credit card corporations. So if you don't have a job you can't apply for a credit card, which you might need to pay for your training cause since you aren't working you won't have the money just then to pay, but once you are trained and working you can pay it off.

Since when have they been (almost unfairly) been using a person's credit rating and capacity as the basis for his capacity to work and pay for anything anyway? I just find to be a rather... imperfect and almost arbitrary system.

Well with less employed people around, they would issue less credit cards, and they would be earning less because there are less subscribers to earn interest from.

Then they would raise credit interest rates, sending another group of people into debt, and with less earning they will need the Fed to bail them out again.

Sounds like a pretty retarded self-destructive cycle, doesn't it?

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

The likely reasoned that only employed people can pay the debt back, whereas unemployed people would mean they would only make losses out of them. Very simplistic and erratic thought process, I would say.

MORE underage pregnancy? I mean, ok, centuries ago this used to be ok, but things are different now. How can a little girl like that be expected to do the kind of work adults should be doing? What's worse is that it's being done for the sake of fame. Well, I wanna see what she'll look like in 10 years. Beauty (which she doesn't have much of anyways) like that doesn't last forever.

Not to mention the mortality risks for pregnancies under the age of 18 is actually pretty damn high...

I find this interesting. And they used my favorite bacteria. Escherichia coli.

Underage pregnancy isn't all that shocking nowadays, especially in Great Britain.

It's the mother's respond that is making the news. She's actually using her daughter's suitation to convince the Government into moving her into a larger house.

Lol! Well, I guess so. I just remember in Microbiology classes when we'd culture E. coli and it would grow and produce this metallic green coat. I just found it cool.

And it became my favorite bacteria. Lol. I'm weird, I know. Hahahaha

E. coli isn't exactly harmless. Some serotypes of E. coli are actually enterotoxic and thus pathogenic.

While genetic reengineering might be a new frontier in infectious disease controls, I surmise this new technology will be far too expensive for the vast majority of people to afford, which is sad, because P. aeruginosa is notoriously hard to kill.

I am aware of that. Still, if they are able to modify it to be harmless, it's pretty interesting and they could develop it further to benefit sick people.

But I agree with you about the expenses.

On a sidenote, you're from UERM I see. Same school. :P

They said they're using a harmless strain that's commonly found in the gut, so yeah it should be okay. I mean we already use E-coli to make all sorts of proteins like insulin already.

Anyway, I'm more interested in following up on that bacteria we designed to take in Carbon Dioxide and emit Oxygen.

I can't really tell why it's supposed to be representative of what's happening in Britain, nor if the mother or the daughter is worse than the other, but there's obviously a problem here.

It was supposed to have fallen apparently:

I read that we apparently have the one of the highest teen preganacy rates in Europe but I don't know anything else other than that.

Crashing the Tea Party
http://www.nytimes.com/2011/08/17/op...tea-party.html
Quote:
Of course, politicians of all stripes are not faring well among the public these days. But in data we have recently collected, the Tea Party ranks lower than any of the 23 other groups we asked about — lower than both Republicans and Democrats. It is even less popular than much maligned groups like “atheists” and “Muslims.” Interestingly, one group that approaches it in unpopularity is the Christian Right.

I wouldn't say it's representative of Britain itself, as this kind of thing could happen in any other industrialized country, tho there have been a number of cases of underage pregnancy here in the UK, one recent one where the father was thought to be a 12 year old O_o (tho it's been disproved now).
