- Sen. Mitch McConnell says liberals are infiltrating conservative groups in Kentucky Yeah right, sure they are. He’s saying there is a organized conspircy amongst liberals to infiltrate the Tea Party (the Tea Party? Really?) by liberals in an attempt to oust him.

- Ballmer: Office with no iPad support makes ‘a lot of sense’ | ZDNet Yeah, that makes a whole lot of sense.
….Asked about Office for the iPad, Ballmer gave a terse reply: “I have nothing to say on the topic.”
“We’re very happy with the product that we’re putting in market,” Ballmer told Bloomberg. “It makes sense on the devices like the Mac and the PC. We have a product that we think makes a lot of sense. We do have a way for people always to get to Office through the browser, which is very important. And we’ll see what we see in the future.
The fundamental issue thought to be behind the delay in bringing Office to iOS is Microsoft’s unwillingness to pay Apple’s 30-percent commission on apps sold through its App Store….

- 13 To Watch in 2013: The Unsung Heroes Changing Health Care Forever – Forbes Number 13 on the list is Gary Taubes, author or two of my favorite books Good Calories, Bad Calories: Fats, Carbs, and the Controversial Science of Diet and Health and Why We Get Fat: And What to Do About It.
13. Gary Taubes
This science journalist and author spent five years of his life plowing through every known study linking lifestyle factors to conditions like heart disease, diabetes and obesity, and he then wrote a book detailing all of it, “Good Calories, Bad Calories: Fats, Carbs, and the Controversial Science of Diet and Health.”
The bottom line: the science doesn’t support conventional wisdom on saturated fat, diabetes, obesity, diet and exercise. With his remarkable colleague, Dr. Peter Attia, he started a new organization called Nutrition Science Institute to support more research and assure that Americans hear directly from the scientists. Given the heavy emphasis on lifestyle and wellness under Obamacare — including a provision allowing employers to incentivize employee wellness with up to 30 percent of their health insurance premium — look for Gary to help dispel some unscientific myths that undermine these programs.
So as you clink your glasses and wish your loved ones a Happy New Year, remember to look out for these trailblazers who will likely make a true impact on health care in 2013.
