Ted Cruz found this for us.
 
 
CNN might have broken Georgia law with a generous reading.
 
2010 Georgia Code
TITLE 16 - CRIMES AND OFFENSES
CHAPTER 8 - OFFENSES INVOLVING THEFT
ARTICLE 1 - THEFT
§ 16-8-16 - Theft by extortion
O.C.G.A. 16-8-16 (2010)
16-8-16. Theft by extortion
 
 
(a) A person commits the offense of theft by extortion when he
unlawfully obtains property of or from another person by
threatening to:
 
[...]
 
(3) Disseminate any information tending to subject any person to

Reading this statute on what CNN did takes more than generosity. What is it that CNN supposedly stole? The core of this crime is stealing. If their "dissemination" wasn't a threat to get the victim to hand over something, this statute doesn't apply at all.

Thorium is not fissile. When it captures a neutron it becomes
U233 that is fissile. Mix Th232 and U233 to breed more U233 which
fissions and produces heat. This is the basis for a Thorium
energy producing reactor.
 
Liquid fluoride thorium reactors (LFTR) are being built by
Canada, India, Japan, UK and Czech Republic. They are small. They
work at higher temperature leading to higher heat to electricity
efficiencies. A single small design can be perfected and
practically air lifted into place, then swithed on.
 
All other breeder species are not self sustaaining. They need to
be periodically replenished with fissile fuel. LFTRs need to be
charged once at start up, then new thorium can be addeed without
shutting down the reactor.
 
| In a LFTR, thorium and uranium-233 are dissolved in carrier
| salts, forming a liquid fuel. In a typical operation, the liquid
| is pumped between a critical core and an external heat exchanger
| where the heat is transferred to a nonradioactive secondary salt.
| The secondary salt then transfers its heat to a steam turbine or
| closed-cycle gas turbine.[2] This technology was first
| investigated at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory Molten-Salt
| Reactor Experiment in the 1960s, though the MSRE did not use
| thorium. It has recently been the subject of a renewed interest
| worldwide.[3] Japan, China, the UK and private US, Czech,
| Canadian[4] and Australian companies have expressed intent to
| develop and commercialize the technology. LFTRs differ from other
| power reactors in almost every aspect: they use thorium that is
| turned into uranium rather than uranium directly, receive fuel by
| pumping without shutdown, use a salt coolant and produce higher
| operating temperatures.[5] These distinctive characteristics give
| rise to many potential advantages, as well as design challenges.

Given that's a couple years out of date, it'd be interesting to be something more current to match the NHS
 
"The NHS figures show the number waiting at least a week to see their GP has risen by 56 per cent in five years, with one in five now waiting this long.
 
The pressures left 11.3 per cent of patients unable to get an appointment at all - a 27 per cent rise since 2012."

If you want to open a private practice and don't want to take Medicare or Medicaid, the only regulation that is medical specific is having a license. A couple states make you have malpractice insurance. If you have employees, you will have to deal with OSHA, but their medical regulations are pretty common sense given the enormous risk to both the provider and patient and they've been generally drilled heavily into your head by the time you finish training.
 
If you want to take Medicare, sure you're gonna have lots of regulations to deal with. And you should. That's taxpayer money. And that certainly isn't easy, but there are plenty of resources to help with that.
 
Again, the giant enormous barrier to market entry is the training required. frankly, I'd like to know that the ER doc that I didn't have a chance to search about before they dragged by my MI suffering soul into the hospital is at least competent, so relaxing that would be insane. They could help this a lot by allowing mid level providers to do more, to open more slots in medical schools and training programs, and to import more well trained docs from abroad. But that is the profession, not the government that largely blocks those things.
 
I'd love to hear what elixir of regulatory reform would dramatically help the profession (other than Medicare, cause again, that's my money is like to know is at least moderately well spent).

And this is pretty much the reason concierge medicine is growing each year - many docs love it - far less paperwork, more time w/ patients, etc

Correct - there should indeed be barriers to entry at the top - otoh, lessened restrictions at the bottom. We're seeing some loosening of regs (Of which state laws have effects) - and could use more

Well, are you sure Medicare money *is* well spent? Is the quality of healthcare better than for healthcare provided via other means?

Remember _Absence of Malice_ [1981]? At the showdown Wilfred
Brimley turns to Paul Newman and says "Mr. Gallagher, I seem to
want to ask if you set all this up. But if I do, you ain't gonna
tell me, are you?" and Gallagher is silent.

| Hillary Clinton's former campaign chair is telling President
| Donald Trump to "Get a grip" and get his "head in the game."
|
| John Podesta says on Twitter: "Dude, get your head in the game.
| You're representing the US at the G20."
|
| Trump had tweeted earlier Friday that "Everyone" in Hamburg,
| Germany "is talking about why John Podesta refused to give the
| DNC server to the FBI and the CIA. Disgraceful!"
|
| Trump is attending a summit of world leaders in the country.
|
| Podesta said he saw Trump's tweet during a stop on a
| cross-country road trip with his wife.
|
| He says, "God only knows what you'll be raving about on twitter
| by the time we get to Utah."
 
Of course John Podesta is screaming. Given his shady private
dealing with Russia while officially representing the State
Department's interests while Felonia von Pantsuit was SS, he has
a worried mind.
