According to Nielsen figures, Judy Sheindlin'scourtroom show averaged 6.3 million daily viewers, compared with 5.7 million for Oprah Winfrey's talk show. "Judge Judy" became the first show to knock "Oprah" out of the top spot in a decade and it was "Judge Judy" that did it the last time, too. Winfrey relied on more reruns than usual last season, which affected her ratings. Sheindlin is in her 15th year with the legal show. Winfrey, who's in the 25th and final season of her syndicated show, will launch a new cable network in January. "Judge Judy" has been renewed through 2013.Heard but not seen on the Oprah set, "I do not lie like a democrat".

44 pct of gay, bisexual men with HIV don't know it


Thu Sep 23, 3:35 pm ET 2010 ATLANTA One in five sexually active gay and bisexual men has the AIDS Virus , and nearly half of those don't know they are infected, a federal study of 21 U.S. cities shows. Experts said the findings are similar to earlier research, but the study released Thursday is the largest to look at gay and bisexual U.S. men at high risk for HIV. More than 8,000 men were tested and interviewed, and 44 percent of those who had the virus didn't know they had it. Overall, less than half of 1 percent of Americans (How do they know if those that have it, have no idea?) have the AIDS virus, according to a calculation by the Kaiser Family Foundation, a research and policy organization (They can know, what they cannot know?) in Washington, D.C. But gay and bisexual men continue to be infected at much higher rates, said Jennifer Kates, Kaiser's director of global health and HIV policy. "We don't have a generalized epidemic in the United States. We have a concentrated epidemic among certain populations (And how is this determined, if you cannot know, by those who do not know, they are infected?)," she said. That's why a new national AIDS strategy, unveiled by the White House in July, is emphasizing more of a government focus on men who have sex with men and others at the highest risk of getting infected, Kates said. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends HIV testing at least once a year for all men who have sex with men and are sexually active, but research indicates more than half don't get tested. An earlier study in just five cities in 2004-05 found similar results. The new study, conducted in 2008, included 16 additional cities. Researchers offered free testing to the men, interviewed them and paid around $25 for their participation. Black men were more likely to have HIV, with 28 percent reportedly infected, compared to 18 percent of Hispanic men and 16 percent of white men. Black men were also least likely to know they were infected about 60 percent didn't know they had HIV compared 46 percent of Hispanic men and 26 percent of whites (Of all those, of these percentiles that were tested and paid the $25, of these you can know).


Put It In Perspective


1 in 5 of 8,000 - and if 5 = 8,000 - then the 1 represents the 1600 (5 x 1600 = 8000 the amount of test subjects) and half of those = 800 - 44% of 800 = 352 gays or bisexuals did not know they had the AIDs Virus and 56% or 448 knew they had the AIDs Virus out of 21 states (unmentioned population amounts or the names of all those states, for example, 350 of those whom did not know, could have came out of California alone, which would make a likely scenario for California, but not for the other 20 states, unless they were heavily populated, like that of New York, this test was insufficent and a misleading test, since the states or the populace of the states were unnamed or not given, a bogus study for an effected outcome.)

The story could easily have been better stated as 8,000 gays and bisexuals were tested, first to see if they had the AIDs Virus, second to see if they were aware of having the deadly virus. Of those 8,000 a group of 1,600 were sexually active and half of those 1,600 sexually active gays and bisexuals, less than half of those, an 800- which is less than half of 1% as 1% is equal to 1,600 (x 5 + 8,000) and of those 800 x 44% which is equivalent to 352 gays and bisexuals who did not know they had the AIDs Virus. Another 56% of 800 or 448 or less, gays and bisexuals knew they had the AIDs Virus.
The article is misleading in the wording, "less than half of 1 percent of Americans", according to the US Cenus Bureau the population of America(n's) on 9-25-2010 is 310,331,230 and 1% of 310,331,230 = 3 Million, One Hundred and Three Thousand and Three Hundrend and Twelve or 3,103,312 and One Half of the One Percentile or 1/2 of 3,103,312 = 1,551,562 or the equivalency of .0000005% of all Americans are actively sexually gay and bisexually infected with the AID's Virus while .00000010% pursue a gay and bisexual lifestyle.
