“One suspects that as religious vilification laws spread, the liberal proponents of these laws will end up unwittingly empowering those who believe that their religion should be above condemnation.”
-Daveed Gartenstein OCT 26, 2005
from a really interesting article on hate speech laws in Australia.
The article states
‘The Act prohibits conduct “that incites hatred against, serious contempt for, or revulsion or severe ridicule of” a class of people based on their religious beliefs. Its force was brought to bear against Scot and another pastor, Danny Nalliah, after three Australian converts to Islam covertly attended a seminar they held in March 2002, took notes, and then filed a legal complaint.’
Also from wikipedia
“The Court said the Tribunal had no business “attempt[ing] to assess the theological propriety of what was asserted at the Seminar.” The Court directed a re-hearing before a different judge. The pastors and the Islamic Council of Victoria prevented a re-hearing by resolving their conflict through mediation on 22 June 2007.”
After reading Dr. Mark Starr‘ book on Hypothyroidism as well as Elle Russ’ latest book The Paleo Thyroid Solution I am quite optimistic about the potential of thyroid hormone replacement. When I first heard Elle talking about thyroid hormone replacement on the primal blueprint podcast, I was skeptical. I had the mindset that I could do all the steps such as diet such and vitamin supplementation to get the results I’m after. Since then and after reading these books, I’m optimistic about the this potential solution given my symptoms. So I guess thyroid is my latest intervention.
And what do you know, Joe Freaking Rogan is on Thyroid replacement hormones (at 43:50)
The third attempt at a comfortable way to work in front of a computer has been a kneeling chair. I found with a computer chair, I was slouching and would get a sore lower back. I tried a standing desk but found my feet would feel sore after not too long, I would rest one knee on my desk (I put a small table on top of my desk).. I came to find I didn’t like being front of my computer with this method.
Enter the kneeling chair, I looked at various varieties around the internet and eventually came across the Variér® Variable™ balans® Kneeling Chair, retailing for around $700. Yeah, no. Found a copy on eBay for $140 delivered 😀
Currently using it and I love it, a lot. I can change my position to relief strain from different positions, it’s sweet.
