Grant money went to this

Scientists are trying to prove the more you sleep around, the more likely you are to spread an STD. Of course, they dress it up in terms like "scale-free network" and "preferential attachment of new links between highly connected nodes".
It's sort of annoying, but their basic point is probably true enough--teach really promiscious people to use condoms, and the STD rate will go down. Hell, history demonstrates how quickly HIV spread through the U.S. by virtue of a surprisingly small number of really promiscious people, if I remember correctly. Had those people used condoms regularly, the spread of the disease would have probably been a lot slower. We don't really need a mathematical theory to show that.
But we are living in strange times, where religious fanatics have undermined everyone's abilities to think clearly about sexuality and disease transmission. If coughing up a complex, mathematical, obtusely worded document detailing what we already know, it might help get common sense back into government AIDS policy.

I hope there isn't any grant money on that; we've known that for years.

And you do have a point; if those who sleep around would use condoms they would be less likely to spread some types of stds (not all if my understanding is correct).

But the more a person sleeps around the more likely one is to contract a disease, and the more likely you are to spread it.

So it seems to me to be a two pronged attack; encourage
those who are going to sleep around to use condoms, but also discourage sleeping around (and sleeping with people who sleep around)

Last week I told you about Google Site Targeting -
putting your AdWords ads on specific websites
instead of targeting by keyword, and how this
slices the world in a completely different way.

Now you can pay to have your ad shown, rather
than paying per click, and you can more easily
advertise products that people wouldn't necessarily
think to search for.

Google started out selling this space for $2.00
per thousand impressions ("CPM"). Then they
dropped it to $1.00.

On Monday they just dropped it again, to 25 cents.

(Now we're talking!)

This now puts those clicks in the ~5 cent neighborhood,
and in some cases less. It's a fun thing to play with.
But before you do, though, make sure you:

-Set a low daily budget so you don't make a big mistake

-Track conversion rates (Very important! Without
sales conversion, nothing else matters.)

-Delete sites with horrible Click Thru Rates - Hey, if
you're not getting any clicks, you shouldn't be paying
them for the impressions.

Want to increase the clicks on your adsense ads? Of course you do. This means more money in your pocket.
For FREE Information. That will for sure make you more money by the end of the week.

CREDIT CARD DEBT HELP FREE QUOTE APPLY NOW

Student loan rates can fluctuate from the current low of 4.70% to a maximum of 8.25% for federal Stafford loans, 9% for PLUS loans. The current consolidation program allows students to consolidate once with a private lender, and reconsolidate again only with the Department of Education. Upon consolidation, a fixed interest rate is set based on the then-current interest rate. Reconsolidating does not change that rate. If the student combines loans of different types and rates into one new consolidation loan, a weighted average calculation will establish the appropriate rate based on the then-current interest rates of the different loans being consolidated togetherFederal student loan consolidation is often referred to as refinancing, which is incorrect because the loan rates are not changed, merely locked in. Unlike private sector debt consolidation, student loan consolidation does not incur any fees for the borrower; private companies make money on student loan consolidation by reaping subsidies from the federal governmentIn the United States, federal student loans are consolidated somewhat differently, as federal student loans are guaranteed by the U.S. government. In a federal student loan consolidation, existing loans are purchased and closed by a loan consolidation company or by the Department of Education (depending on what type of federal student loan the borrower holds). Interest rates for the consolidation are based on that year's student loan rate, which is in turn based on the 91-day Treasury bill rate at the last auction in May of each calendar year
