When you see all those brands, all those different stores, outlets and eyecare companies, you think, "competition" right? Not exactly. What if I told you there was one company that pretty much had a monopoly on the entire market? If you don't wear glasses or sunglasses, then I guess this won't apply to you...

It's no secret among savvy shoppers that Amazon is a great place to research products and find the best price-quality ratio.

However, it's becoming more and more difficult to do this research due to what's called, "incentivized reviewers." These are people who provide detailed, "honest" reviews in return for free products.

One company has done an analysis of reviews on Amazon differentiating regular from incentivized reviews and produced some interesting results...

[Pseudo-Science]
Is science BS? Or is there BS masquerading as science?

Do you ever wonder why there seems to be conflicting news reports on the health/danger of various substances? Something is healthy, then another report says it's not? Who knows what to believe these days? Is science that contradictory? NO! The problem lies not in science as much as it is the fault of the news media mis-interpreting scientific studies. See John Oliver expose this industry and inoculate yourself against pseudo-scientific BS masquerading as legitimate research results.

8 Reasons Progressives Are Wary Of Bernie Sanders' Bandwagon

Posted by Pile (40108 views) Add this story to MyYahoo Add this article to del.icio.us Submit article to Reddit Add story to Furl Add story to StumbleUpon [E-Mail link]

[BSAlert *exclusive*]
*BSA Exclusive Editorial*

I dig Bernie Sanders. I've always loved him and his perspective. I agree with 99% of what he promotes in terms of long-term policy. But I still find myself uneasy with his candidacy. I will vote for whoever gets the Democratic nomination, but I'm not convinced people understand the dynamics and what's really in play right now?

As many of those on the left and the "disenfranchised" are "feeling the Bern" and hopping on the Bernie Sanders bandwagon, theres a schism developing among those who pine for social change.

It seemed hard to fathom that a candidate that has been so succinctly enumerating many of the problems people on the left, center and right have been harping about has now become so contentious?

I gotta be honest.. to me it feels like another Deja Vu moment. How I felt when I heard all my friends get so excited about Ralph Nader in 2000, and how his fresh rhetoric was going to change the political landcape...

It doesn't seem to make sense. Even among the editors at BSAlert, there's contention on the value of a Sanders presidency. Allow us to provide you with what we think are some troubling issues with Sanders and why we feel, as much as we love what he says, In my opinion (though not the opinion of everybody here) Sanders is a pied piper more than he is a path to change...

If all you want is Bernie elected; if all you care about is "sending the message" ok, I can't argue with that. But if you care about actually seeing his policy ideas executed, and moving in a more progressive direction during the next 4-8 years, you have to at least be open to these arguments...
