Interesting piece in the NY Times Science section:
Might be worth bringing a copy with you if you like to opt out?
"But some experts are less sanguine, and questions persist about the safety of using X-ray machines on such a large scale. A recent study reported that radiation from the machines can reach organs through the skin. In another report, researchers estimated that one billion X-ray backscatter scans per year would lead to perhaps 100 radiation-induced cancers in the future. The European Union has banned body scanners that use radiation; it is against the law in several European countries to X-ray people without a medical reason."
And yet, here we are
While I have not had to opt-out recently, I do worry about when I've had to stand near the backscatter. IIRC, a report said that the radiation can shoot upto six feet from either side, and up to ten feet above and below :O
Sadly, the sheeple may never learn...

Popping in to say hi! How is everyone doing this hot Tuesday?
What's up in this lounge?
Very hot Tuesday, time to turn over and roast the other side
Good m/a/e Woofy, Pat, Perryplatypus, FromNYC, FS, and anyone else around! Going to be another typical summer day here: 33C, RH topping to 90% and hazy.
A place where we can enjoy conversations without being dictated by a scheme!
Good m/a/e Rejuvenated! It's been a while since you've popped in for a visit. How are things going?
Today I picked up two medals in the Office Olympics. A Gold in the Staple Chase and a Silver in Table Soccer. Woot!
Ours are on Friday, our last chance to use the interns to full effect.
We had our spectacular opening ceremonies including the parade of nations and torch lighting ceremonies on July 27th. We have two games every Tuesday and Thursday both last week and this, plus an additional team relay this week. Closing ceremonies, award of medals, and ice cream is on Friday.
Wow. I work for a big company and we normally do things big, but we don't do it that big. We do do it worldwide on multiple sites, though.
I like the sound of that very, very much!
Hiya, Community Loungers!
Congrats! Sounds like some good fun and team building thrown in too!
You are right on both counts. Most people don't realize that there is team building in there too--they are having too much fun.
Doing well on a typical HK Wednesday. Trying to avoid the outdoors as much as possible and be confined to an air-conditioned facility such as my office.
How about you?
Is there any way I can participate for the next one?
. Currently it's open to employees only. . Now I have to do some research on building paper boats for the sailing regatta on Thursday.
Let me know once you have a position opening!
Air quality here is horrendous as usual out there:
I tried to shoop it out from my pics of HKG. This is much less mucky than it was originally:

Good m/a/e desamo! Hope you enjoyed your visit to my hometown.
I did! We're plotting to return next year. Hubby hasn't been since he was a kid (Hong Kong is his hometown as well). We're thinking (along with the Tokyo Do):
Good MAE everyone!
I hope your week is going well!
