So this is why they just discontinued the NBC News podcast that I've been watching daily for over five years? Eh.

wmarincic - I'm not sure what the big bang has to do with anything. And I guess if you want to go into an evolution tangent, I'm not sure how something can be "half man/half ape" when humans are apes. But I guess the evidence you're looking for is AL 288-1, more commonly known as "Lucy", discovered 40 years ago, proving Darwin's theory of evolution in humans (it's crazy that some people still don't believe it to be true). You can read more about Lucy here -

Thomas A. Romano Sr. - Where has any climatologist ever said that a cold, snowy winter is "proof" of global warming? That sounds like the same ignorant anti-science BS that anti-evolutionists use when claiming evolution states that "humans evolved from monkeys". Just to be clear, climate change (that's what climatologists call it, not "global warming") is gradually increasing the chances of more extreme weather over time. One storm or one season does not prove anything, and no climatologist would ever say that.

Pretty sure it's Farley Place, not Farley Drive.

A question that came up a lot in my discussions about this relate to the timeline. When is construction expected to start? When is it expected to open? When can taxpayers expect to see a drop in their property taxes?

I was wondering why whoever it actually is wasn't talked about in the possibilities so I did some searching for a missing 63-year-old man and found this article from the Gazette in 1919 (almost 100 years ago!) of a missing 63-year-old Ballston Lake man who may have been in the Schenectady area. It can't be him, right? That's way too long ago to have not been discovered by now.

Wow… the lack of knowledge is embarrassing. I hope you're joking, but in case you're not - Ebola is only contagious from very sick people. That's why doctors and nurses are the only ones getting it here. You're not going to get it from a bowling ball. I don't understand why that is so difficult to understand. It's rampant in WEST Africa (not South Africa as you so erroneously put it… but I guess lack of knowledge comes from all directions) because of the lack of skilled doctors. We send heroes over there to work with them and treat them. And they should be treated as such.

I hope people understand that writer Roslyn Weiss is definitely not a doctor and has not studied ebola and made it clear she has no idea how the disease spreads. As the doctors who actually study ebola have repeated again and again - you CAN NOT spread ebola from sweat on a bowling ball, a cough or sneeze in the cafe or subway. It's horrible misinformation just designed to attack the good humanitarian doctors who go to countries where the virus is a genuine public concern. Shame on anyone who talks like that.
