Public distrust of scientists stems in part from the blurring of boundaries between science and technology, between discovery and manufacture. Most government, perhaps all governments, justify public expenditure on scientific research in terms of the economic benefits the scientific enterprise ha brought in the past and will bring in the future. Politicians remind their voters of the splendid machines `our scientists' have invented aion gold
, the new drugs to relieve old ailments, and the new surgical equipment and techniques by which previously intractable conditions may now be treated and lives saved aion money
. At the same time, the politicians demand of scientists that they tailor their research to `economics needs', that they award a higher priority to research proposals that are `near the market' and can be translated into the greatest return on investment in the shortest time cheap aion gold
. Dependent, as they are, on politicians for much of their funding, scientists have little choice but to comply. Like the rest of us, they are members of a society that rates the creation of wealth as the greatest possible good cheap aion money
. Many have reservations, but keep them to themselves in what they perceive as aclimate hostile to the pursuit of understanding for its own sake and the idea of an inquiring, creative spirit buy aion gold
In such circumstances no one should be too hard on people who are suspicious of conflicts of interest. When we learn that the distinguished professor assuring us of the safety of a particular product holds a consultancy with the company making it, we cannot be blamed for wondering whether his fee might conceivably cloud his professional judgment. Even if the professor holds no consultancy with any firm, some people many still distrust him because of his association with those who do, or at least wonder about the source of some his research funding.
This attitude can have damaging effects. It questions the integrity of individuals working in a profession that prizes intellectual honesty as the supreme virtue, and plays into the hands of those who would like to discredit scientists by representing then a venal. This makes it easier to dismiss all scientific pronouncements, but especially those made by the scientists who present themselves as `experts'. The scientist most likely to understand the safety of a nuclear reactor, for example, is a nuclear engineer declares that a reactor is unsafe, we believe him, because clearly it is not to his advantage to lie about it. If he tells us it is safe, on the other hand, we distrust him, because he may well be protecting the employer who pays his salary.

The first fatal: gold weapons task ~ many people are reluctant to fire Temple, and hard brush to 35 + get a yellow weapons, and you will change again when you get to 8. fire Temple of the experience is high, but in the early time the other people eat your experience, a lot of time wasted on the team and wait for others. There is blue weapons 40 + no one is interested aion gold
, I hit the cold blue book, nobody wanted a few days directly linked to the demolition of it ~ If there is no such a task need aion money
, Aion of the market is definitely not like this, as the most important weapons and equipment must be the most expensive market, the most active trading, he will bring in weapons manufacturing boom ~ Unfortunately, the game will know that this is only to make money collecting gold, raw materials difficult to sell on the play beat demon were dry and tasteless cheap aion gold
. Manufacturing industry is the lifeblood of a game, manufacturers are not active in the game so how can active buy aion gold
The second fatal: players fault ~ grand opening of the new service can only use two words to describe the speed of a rocket-old did not take into account the feelings of players, a new service to open a lot of people go every day to meet all those old faces ~ there is no new addition of the results is to pyramid the more up-class people as less than high-level of your primary material cheap aion money
. All services ~ we want to see strange faces.
The third fatal: plug-plug-ins, original thought that this game there will not be plug-in, I believe. But at the moment to think of how naive he is, operators consider only the profit, he also spent Card, why did I sealed off from the wealth-90 percent believe that players do not like plug-in, but when there is the first plug-in, initiator of the first time, why can not I? As a result 90% of people also use plug-in, which is predicted by the operators, he predicted that right. The consequences of plug-ins can only really be described as disastrous by ~ a friend rather than ones linked to by the numerous play, the price of gold from one W spend 4 pence fall to five cent, seriously disrupting the equilibrium in the market to die ~ Land of the Dead Aura no game, it is dark, very lonely ~
