A sixth baby has died while using a recalled "Nap Nanny" infant recliner, with safety experts again urging parents to stop using the product.

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, or CPSC, the latest tragedy involved an 8-month-old girl from New Jersey. The baby suffocated while secured by a belt, trapped between the product and a crib bumper. CPSC officials said the infant was found stuck over the side of a Nap Nanny.

'Make crime victims give DNA' A call to compel all victims of crime to provide their DNA or fingerprints to be added to national databases, was rejected by Attorney General Lord Goldsmith.

The demand was made during Lords question time by Labour's Lord Campbell-Savours who said it would help the police to identify women who made repeated false claims of rape against men and later changed their names.

There is only one kind of immunity and that is natural immunity which is achieved by battling the infectious diseases itself. Vaccination is merely the artificial triggering of temporary responses to manmade pathogens.

Vaccines are both harmful and dangerous and are leading to generations of humans with no natural defenses to disease. Vaccines do not provide long-term immunity; only temporary at best. Vaccines should never be called immunizations because that is a misnomer. Immunity and vaccinations are two different subjects altogether.

A federal magistrate today dismissed with prejudice a disgraceful DMCA prosecution against three young Texas men who bought a lot of cell phones while looking Arab.

Adham Othman, 21, his brother Louai Othman, 23, and their cousin Maruan Muhareb, 18, were cleared of money laundering and conspiracy charges. The three were rousted by local law enforcement in Michigan after they were spotted driving from Wal-Mart to Wal-Mart buying as many low-cost pre-paid cell phones as they could get their hands on.

Most corporate customer service departments seem to have been reduced to call scripts of apologies with no power whatsoever to actually address the problems they encounter.

That's the conclusion I'm left with after dealing with three business bureaucracies this year: Comcast, Verizon, and American Airlines. All train their front line people to glaze the interaction with the plastic empathy that's supposed to make you feel like they care, even when they demonstrably do not. It's the customer service equivalent of empty calories, but worse, it's also infuriating. There's simply nothing worse than someone telling you how sorry they are when you can hear they don't give a damn. Nothing worse than someone telling you that they're doing all they can, when they're aren't lifting a finger.

Yahoo has some 11,000 workers. Most estimates put the number of remote workers between 300 and 500. In other words, just 2-4% of the Yahoo work force. That's a tiny minority!

But that's exactly why it's been so easy to place the blame on them for Yahoo's ails. Minorities make for great scapegoats in all walks of life. If we can just place the blame on this small group of people, then it means there's nothing really wrong with the rest of us. Gruber summed up this sentiment as "Yahoo employees have been allowed to work remotely, and they have not excelled". In other words, Yahoo is a rudderless basket case, so it must be because of those 2-4% of the work force who are "goofing off". Heh.

A few weeks ago I read a letter called Please Don't Help My Kids. This excerpt resonated with me: "It is not my job ... to prevent my children from feeling frustration, fear, or discomfort."

Doing something the first time is a challenge. I have 2 young kids, and I watch them struggle with the most rudimentary things. Eventually they figure it out. Usually it comes with tears and pleading. But that's how they'll learn to do the next thing. That's how they'll get the confidence to take on the next challenge. That's how you level up.

A great response from OXO to an accusation that they ripped off the design of a competitor's product. Measured, respectful (especially considering the other side's very public disrespect), clear, and well documented.

Lately I've been spending some time with local entrepreneurs who are looking for business advice. Inevitably, the topic of pricing comes up. "How do I know how much to charge?"

There are lots of answers. You can make up a number and see if it works. You can test a few different prices at the same time. You can do traditional market research and see what you find. You can read pricing books and academic papers on pricing approaches, techniques, and behavioral psychology. You can see what others are charging. The good news about pricing is that you can guess, be wrong, but still be right enough to build a great sustainable business. Maybe you're leaving some money on the table, but, like my dad always says, no one ever went broke making a profit.
