they should have called "salt" sodium chloride (or at least non-iodized table salt)

and for a bonus common name, Potassium Chloride can be found in salt substitutes (although I believe most of that is iodized as well)

I didn't take the pics, I just found them. My point didn't have so much to do with chemical accuracy as with demonstrating the different colors as well as the relative safety in doing things correctly. As far as I know, teachers, to this day, do not do more than two or three at one time. But the teacher always demonstrated first before allowing the students to repeat the experiment in the lab. There was only one occasion that I can recall, where the teacher did not demo first as there was nothing harmful being done and it was our opportunity to follow the procedure on our own, without any help of any kind except from our lab partners, if you had one.

ETA: This was 7th grade so first year junior high.

Outrageous!

Quote:
France's newly inaugurated President Emmanuel Macron unveiled his Cabinet on Wednesday, with women filling half of the 22 positions as promised.

Gérard Collomb will become interior minister, former presidential hopeful François Bayrou takes justice and Jean-Yves Le Drian -- who was defense minister under former President François Hollande -- takes foreign affairs and Europe.

Sylvie Goulard will be defense minister, while Muriel Pénicaud becomes labor minister and Agnes Buzyn is health minister. Annick Girardin, who was the minister for public services under Hollande, is now the overseas territories minister.

Bruno Le Maire, who served under former center-right President Nicolas Sarkozy, has been named as Macron's economy minister.

I got that. Then thought I'd better explain so others wouldn't misunderstand. You were right to make the corrections and I'm glad you did.

It is important to have women and minorities represented. We have Kellyanne Conway, Betsy Devos, Ben Carson and Ivanka in there.

Actually I think that graphic is secretly brilliant. I mean think about it - it says the marijuana is leaving Colorado. So naturally there wouldn't be any left in Colorado.

I call bullshit on the whole thing. Three decades ago I would have believed it. But with 28 states having legalized medical and the info below... if there is any truth to it, it's not coming from the "legal" growers (that supply the dispensaries) in the US. They have too much to lose.

Much of it comes from drug cartels that are taking advantage of the ability to operate legal "personal-use" grow-houses in Colorado to circumvent the risk of having to grow their product out of the country and smuggle it in through the US/Mexico border.

UK judge dismisses son's lawsuit against lottery-winning father

Quote:
A man who was given nearly C$2.9 million by his father after he won C$178 million in the Euromillions has had his claim for more cash thrown out by a judge.

Michael Dawes, 32, took his father, Dave, and stepmother Angie to court after they stopped giving him more money. He claimed the couple had promised to ensure he and his partner, James Beedle, 34, would never have to worry about money again.

The central London county court heard that they had been given more than C$2.6M in the two years following the lottery win in 2011, but two years later most of the cash had been spent.

Judge Nigel Gerald dismissed the claim, saying Dave Dawes did not need to keep “bailing out his profligate son.” He said: “There was no basis on which any rational or normal human being could conclude that they could go back for more money whenever they wanted.”

Michael Dawes was given C$1.8M by his father and stepmother soon after their win, but the judge said nearly all of it had been spent within a month.

About C$970,000 was spent on a house in Portsmouth, where Michael lived, but he also gave nearly C$440,000 to friends and his partner’s family, and quit a well-paid IT job.
At one point, the pair were spending up to C$53,000 a month, including C$1,762 a week on groceries. The judge compared their lifestyle to “some sort of Walter Mitty existence.”

Dave Dawes was unaware his son had given away so much of the money and was baffled when he claimed to have run out of most of it by April 2012. But he wanted to help him, the judge said, and kept transferring money to his bank account.

Gerald added: “Michael took this as a demonstration that his father would cough up whenever asked, and this therefore buttressed his strange conclusion that his dad would financially support him for the rest of his life.” He concluded: “I cannot accept this.”

5 years older than Clinton is now. And his memory seems to be failing him, since he's already run for the office twice, both times without receiving much in the way of enthusiasm from voters.
