I almost never eat raw fish anymore, the occasional piece of tuna maybe, but generally everything should be cooked. Raw meat is just stupid.
So how do you keep a clean bill of health in the age of tapeworms? Since tapeworms live in the fish muscle and are destroyed by heat, it’s best to eat only fully cooked salmon. If you have to order sushi or ceviche, stick with critters like tuna that don’t spend time in rivers.

Subtitled: Skip Adobe Reader, it Blows
Adobe announced they are going to finally start actually paying attention to the endless Acrobat Reader vulnerabilities that bad guys keep discovering and do something about it, mainly writing patches for their buggy software and releasing them on a quarterly basis.
Too little too late. Why bother with something that takes up 233 MB and loads more slowly than a cargo ship in a hurricane when there are so many better and faster alternatives?
Foxit Reader 3.0
Sumatra PDF Reader
Etc. Just google “free pdf reader” and go nuts. You’ll waste less resources on your PC and your system will be safer.
