Si les politiques ont tardé à mesurer l'ampleur du problème, peut-être est-ce parce qu'ils ne le voyaient et ne le vivaient pas. Derrière les chiffres de l'obésité se cachent en effet de fortes disparités sociales. Ainsi, sa prévalence atteint 17 % dans les foyers disposant d'un revenu mensuel inférieur à 900 euros contre 8,1 % dans ceux vivant avec plus de 5 300 euros par mois. Il en est de même chez les 5-12 ans : "6,5 % des enfants de cadres et de professions libérales ont un problème de surpoids contre 23 % des enfants d'ouvriers et de chômeurs", relève le professeur Basdevant.
[George Washington University's Institute for Politics Director Carol Darr] said that the technological architecture of blogs allows anonymity and the culture encourages inflammatory speech. Blogs, she added, tend to attract like-minded people -- and ones who are "slightly more ideologically extreme than the general population." The end result: "The Internet is exacerbating political polarization."
With such active readers, it made sense for bloggers to turn their attention to Washington -- and for more people inside the Beltway to awaken both to the influence of bloggers and the potential of blogging technology.

The OpenEEG project is about creating a low cost EEG device and free software to go with it. It would allow to experiment with neurofeedback or EEG biofeedback training, a generic mental training method which makes the trainee consciously aware of the general activity in the brain.
You can buy a lawn mower at Wal-Mart for $99.96[...], there are slightly better models for every additional $20 bill you're willing to put down--priced at $122, $138, $154, $163, and $188. [...] The least expensive Snapper lawn mower--a 19-inch push mower with a 5.5-horsepower engine--sells for $349.99 at full list price. Even finding it discounted to $299, you can buy two or three lawn mowers at Wal-Mart for the cost of a single Snapper.
If you know nothing about maintaining a mower, Wal-Mart has helped make that ignorance irrelevant: At even $138, the lawn mowers at Wal-Mart are cheap enough to be disposable. [...] Why would you buy a walk-behind mower from Snapper that costs $519? What could it possibly have to justify spending $300 or $400 more?
That's the question that motivated Jim Wier to stop doing business with Wal-Mart. Wier is too judicious to describe it this way, but he looked into a future of supplying lawn mowers and snow blowers to Wal-Mart and saw a whirlpool of lower prices, collapsing profitability, offshore manufacturing, and the gradual but irresistible corrosion of the very qualities for which Snapper was known. Jim Wier looked into the future and saw a death spiral.
