This new connectivity jeopardizes humans and physical infrastructure, not just communication : A recurring refrain in these experts’ answers is that the IoT poses significant new problems because messing with IoT-linked devices can cause real-world damage. Schneier has described it this way: “With the advent of the Internet of Things and cyberphysical systems in general, we’ve given the internet hands and feet: the ability to directly affect the physical world. What used to be attacks against data and information have become attacks against flesh, steel and concrete.”
Jason I realize that there are risks to vaccines, and of course some individuals pay the ultimate price. It’s tragic I agree. But, the real argument is allowable percentages right? We would all like to make sure our family is safe. I imagine you would want 100% safety. It would never happen. When they vaccinate 600 million people, 5000 a year may become ill- (which I believe is an overestimate). We feel horrible for those ill and would like to come up with a cure. Now, let me put it to you this way- 50,000 people are killed in the US in auto accidents. Do people stop driving cars?? No, we try to make them safer. Sure, there are lawsuits, safety fails sometimes because we are all human. Every single person on either side of this debate is arguing over tolerable percentages. Conspiracies, coverups, you bet they happen, they happen in the auto industry too and people die. But to say no one should never drive a car. As for the rest of the US that doesn’t believe in your way of thinking, they must be idiots or drank too much kool aid. All the thousands of doctors must me mindless because 100 say they are? I like real figures, real data. I like the odds of staying with thousands of mindless sheep with 12 years of schooling. I don’t think they are insane, in fact I think they have had much discussion on the very issues you’ve brought up.
Some experts on sitting recommend "active sitting" (which sounds about as relaxing as sleepercising) using an exercise ball, kneeling stool or something else without a high back. There are also standing desks. But if you don't want to look like a cubicle worker whose office manager reads too many furniture design magazines, there's another option: A study used an MRI to measure the spinal disk movement of three groups of people: one sitting, one slouching and one lying back at a 135-degree angle with their feet on the floor. The last group showed the least disk movement. By the way, this reclining position was common during the Roman Empire, including in Jesus' time. So try it at work, and tell your boss you're avoiding future sick days and deepening your religious experience.
