8:23- MEDICAL TESTS

MRIs. EKGs. CT scans.  Some health screenings may save your life, but others can be a waste of time and money- and pose risks of their own. How to know which tests to get and which ones you can safely skip.  Medical screenings aren’t an exact science, and therein lies the rub. All screenings, though some more than others, may still miss problems. 

The ACS notes, for example, that mammograms fail to find 1 in 5 breast cancers.  Screenings can also pick up harmless abnormalities or produce false positive results, which incorrectly indicate the presence of a disease. That can lead to unnecessary and invasive tests and surgery, which have their own risks.

8:52- TURNING OFF FACEBOOK LOCATION TRACKING DOESN'T STOP IT FROM TRACKING YOUR LOCATION

Aleksandra Korolova has turned off Facebook’s access to her location in every way that she can. She has turned off location history in the Facebook app and told her iPhone that she “Never” wants the app to get her location. 

She doesn’t “check-in” to places and doesn’t list her current city on her profile. Despite all this, she constantly sees location-based ads on Facebook. She sees ads targeted at “people who live near Santa Monica” (where she lives) and at “people who live or were recently near Los Angeles” (where she works as an assistant professor at the University of Southern California). 

When she traveled to Glacier National Park, she saw an ad for activities in Montana, and when she went on a work trip to Cambridge, Massachusetts, she saw an ad for a ceramics school there.  

Facebook was continuing to track Korolova’s location for ads despite her signaling in all the ways that she could that she didn’t want Facebook doing that.
