This study like most studies at UVA will be useless in regards to factual discovery. The labs at UVA are given funding to produce predetermined results that favor the Fund Provider's needs. Anyone who has spent more than a day in the research environment knows that the results of studies can be influenced and guided by the format and process of the testing being performed. In short, the Researchers take a large sum of money from multiple groups, right the majority of it off as "operating costs", and produce non-creditable results.

wow, over half a mill for a few years work. And we wonder why the wage disparity is bad? Make the "researchers" teach in a public school, at the salary that they pay, and they will get a "load" of data, as well as a better picture than being a university "staffer".

and you responded in the cop thread:

"So they use their skills to hold down a second job? If UVa pays them to work JPJ, then what's your complaint? You can't find a second job to match up with your "skills"?"

UVA pays them to work there, then what's your complaint? You have a problem with their "skills" used to land the grant?

Spoken like someone who has no idea how professionals work, or the requirements of research. Do you know how many people are required? how a statistically relevant study is conducted? how to analyze anything? Probably not.

99.9% of studies usually find what it is their looking for, if you look hard enough you'll always find it. One need only look at the failed drug trials of late whos findings did nothing but harm those they intended to help. It depends on what they're looking for here.

Translation, an uneducated cop without morals who is willing to sell liberty to ensure gain, the most despicable of despicable in a free society, an honest to goodness US American Josef Mengele. You make me wish there was a hell.

Do you feel cool and tough bullying unarmed minor citizens? Jeez, must be tough pushing kids around. One of my 18 year olds got shrapnel just trying to help out a family. I can't tell you how cool you are. You'd probably still bust him for drinking a beer, and the chain would run him up too.

Did you know the human brain has no nerves that say transmit pain. Probably not. Your brain has no nerve sustem to tranmit thought.

The brain does not "tranmit" thought, only sends electrical signals through the nervous system, not sustem. I think yours is in disrepair and decline.
