Meh, the only thing in this world that isn't carcinogenic is cancer.
The whole carcinogen issue has to do with the effect the meat goes through when heated, and that change increases the chances. The increase is minimal (what's happened is that this has been classified as a type, in the same category as plutonium, smoking, etc). Scale of risk is not measured in the categorization.
Raw meat is far less likely to cause cancer, according to the report - so I'm going to keep eating soft bacon.
They still publish a report from 1997 as their recommendation, and that 55% of your daily intake should be carbs. You'll also note that in section 3, red meat from 20 years ago was still classified as a carcinogen - so this isn't really news.
My intake is less than 20%, most being green vegetables and the rest being a balance of fats and proteins. Losing 145lbs, being stronger and faster and healthier in every way (except in the follicle dept - no change there) with fantastic BP etc?
How do you feel about kids who are 3, 4 and 5 and feel they are not the sex they actually are? There's a wave of parents in this country embracing that as a reason to start treating them as the sex 'they feel they are'.
A child identifying themselves as another gender isn't just a funny way to get into the opposites' changeroom - there is a fundemental shift in thinking in their life.
What the OP covers shows the damaging effect of the indoctrination of children. They don't reason in their conscious mind (instead relying on the gullible sub-conscious). Puberty changes that up - which is why we can convince them that a fat man with herd of flying deer is gonna bring them a new bike through the chimney that we don't necessarily have.
IMO kids should be introduced to God as reasonable humans, not impressionable children.
That whole "don't worry, God's got this" thing? How do you feel about being in a car with me and I let "Jesus take the wheel" ?
With exception to a few consistent bugs a few weeks ago, I find the new interface to be much better - it's more responsive. Also the double-X overlay is way more convenient and straightforward - you don't need to go into an app to get into a party, reply to msgs, etc.
Frankly I wish they'd kill the "snap-to" on help. Almost no developer EVER has used that to work well in tandem with the game you're playing.
Tilt, in what universe would you say anything that wasn't against MS?
M$ is evil. For instance, they pulled Minecraft from PS4. Oh, wait, they didn't.
Is kingdom hearts coming to xb1? Squeenix is interested in making money, and while we few can gnash our teeth over the exclusivity deals made by publishers, "punishing" the game maker (let's consider the devs for the moment) is far more important.
TR was fantastic. This looks awesome. Why would I not want to play a great gaming experience? Because you were surprised at a timed exclusive?
You have THE say in how you you want to spend your gaming dollars ... but a crusade to abolish exclusives is futile and I'd rather vote for good games - bad deals or not.

Upgraded my lap and I like it, but prior to my upgrade streaming from my gaming rig to my laptop using steam was great, but after the upgrade my laptop is dropping frames and the game sound is stuttering. Tried prioritizing the traffic but nothing seems to work. Might just upgrade my gaming rig I'm just frighten especially since win 10 control aspect of all updates and I don't want them updating video drivers until I'm ready
The "Don't worry- we'll upgrade everything for you!" aspect worries me too. If there is a dealbreaker, that might just be it. I can think of quite a few day 1 patches that have caused horrible damage.
Settings -> updates -> advanced options -> defer updates (which delays them several months, though this does not apply to security updates. )
Other XB1 games released this week: King's Quest: The Complete Collection (5 episodes + epilogue, chapter 1 out now, epilogue is Collection exclusive) Squid Hero for Kinect Life is Strange: Episode 4 - Dark Room The Swindle

It was actually fairly enjoyable with your expectations in check.
I think that is the secret for almost any movie. I had low standards for the Hobbit trilogy for instance, but quite enjoyed them for what they were. Sometimes it doesn't work though, I had incredibly low standards for Inception, and it was actually worse. :-) All that said, you are the only the person who I have seen/heard that had anything nice to say about Pixel.
I think it has to do with how the movie is presented.
For instance, when `Sm-ow-g` instead of `Sm-aw-g`is named thusly for the accuracy of some index in the back of a book somewhere that only the die-hards have read, and yet the dwarves battle him inside the lonely mountain? It creates a certain amount of dislike for disparate stance on accurate recreation.
When a movie is goofy to be goofy and does it well? I`m not going to bitch about the far-fetched nature of the premise.
I will not be watching Pixel in theatres - but I may still watch it.
I got some Neverwinter in, and some Arkham Knight.
Is 15 too young for punching? Oh, wait, you`re taking him to martial arts - I see some `lets spar` moments in your life, Ron.
In all seriousness, you two would make good parents - just don`t expect the world of yourselves or the kid in this situation. Knowing how you`ve run a voluntary team of unfocused individuals, I think you`ve got this - I`ve seen you NOT go all military on people whom you`ve wanted to - remember to hide your anger when the kid `presses your button` (and they will, mark my words)... that frustrates their attempts and could see them simply accepting instead of turning every situation into a potential conflict.
My advice is to be steady, consistent, and like Kung Fu masters of old, do not let your charge enrage you as it will slow the learning process. Oh, and never have parental disagreements with them in audience - have your discussions private and keep a unified front - those little bastards live on `divide and conquer` It is also important to support your partner, but they need to be supportive of you in this. Sometimes this can be the biggest challenge.
Also, congrats on turning your life into an eighties sitcom.
