Mathematics isnt plural. The S is a layover from greek when the greeks used the term they refered to everything to do with mathematics for example physics would be taught in Mathematics rather than being 2 different divisions. The real clincher is that all English speaking nations use Singular verbs to agree with either Math or Maths you dont use plural verbs. Another good example is you would never say "One Mathematic, Two mathematics"
User avatar #110 - kousei ONLINE (10/23/2013) [-]
Note: "Mathematics" does not inherently imply a plural nature. No one ever does a single "mathematic". however if you were to expand it and say mathematics is a shortening of "mathematical equations" then the British way of saying "maths" would be accurate as you would be performing multiple equations. However if you treat the term "mathematics" as a subject or a genre then the American way of saying "math" is accurate.

essentially, there is no right or wrong here:
"I'm doing some maths" means "I'm doing a number of mathematical equations"
"I'm doing some math" means "I'm doing work on the subject of mathematics"

suck on that you... alright, frankly I don't have some fun witty insult but, who needs it when you have a sound argument?
User avatar #4 - lean (10/23/2013) [-]
Quick fact:
The affordable care act does not provide people with "universal" care in this country. It forces people to buy a healthcare plan. It forces small businesses to meet certain criteria if they provide an "in house" health plan. It penalizes those who can not (fiscally) take part in health insurance. It gives funding to those states that decided to go with the federal program, and does nothing for the states that elected to uphold the law at the state level.

TLDR: Obamacare is destined to fail due to poor planning, worse websites, and lack of people signing up; not to mention being questionably unconstitutional.

"Lack of people signing up"

You're having a giggle, mate. Millions have already filled out applications and tens of millions have tried to - but could not due to site errors. These people will come back when the site is working properly and also fill out an application.

No.
#260 to #4 - John Cena (10/23/2013) [-]
Also, it is constitutional, as ruled by the Supreme Court itself. That's how we decide those sorts of things in this country.
#48 to #4 - John Cena (10/23/2013) [-]
Mhm its a conservative idea. The law was far closer to a universal health care in its original form. Unfortunately, people seem to dislike the idea of having everyone healthy.
#82 to #48 - John Cena (10/23/2013) [-]
Wow.

Conservatives dont like everyone being healthy.

It has nothing to do with longer waiting rooms, higher taxes, and making health issues a national concern therefore opening up the door to banning cigarettes, fatty foods, sodas, and other things that people choose to partake in that damages themselves.

What a logical mature explanation for the current healthcare debate. You should write books about how providing the exact same service for everybody will increase quality and decrease prices, and how emergency room conditions in every sector of the hospital is a good thing.

Genius man. Really.
User avatar #173 to #4 - nigeltheoutlaw (10/23/2013) [-]
>questionable constitutional
The Supreme Court upheld it so it is completely constitutional. Call me crazy, but I'll take the word of the highest judges in the nation over your opinion.

I'll agree that it has issues that need to either removed or changed, but it's better than no alternative, which is what we had before. My biggest issue is that it requires you to buy a health care plan, since that's ******* retarded, and I think everybody agrees on that point. Even so, just the few stipulations that have already gone into effect, such as no lifetime limits, no denying people on preexisting conditions, and allowing people to stay on their parent's insurance until age 24, have helped immensely in allowing people who didn't have insurance to get insurance.

Long story short, Obamacare has it's issues, but it's better than the previous system of " **** poor and sick people", and until a better system is proposed I will never support getting rid of it.
#9 to #4 - John Cena (10/23/2013) [-]
Though I agree with almost all of your points. There is one thing. Before it went into effect, it was found constitutional. Though I myself am going to be fined at the end of the year, because I cannot afford any of it and that is my only problem with it. Maybe it is because I am in Idaho where they are not expanding Medicaid, but I feel that is the only flaw so far.
User avatar #18 to #9 - lean (10/23/2013) [-]
In accepting the tax argument, the court relied on the “well-established” principle that “if a statute has two possible meanings, one of which violates the Constitution, courts should adopt the meaning that does not do so.”

The court decided to interpret "penalty" as "tax" so the law is therefore constitutional.
User avatar #39 to #18 - Ruspanic ONLINE (10/23/2013) [-]
The ruling was a brilliant move by Justice Roberts. I was super impressed with him. The Obama adm inistration did not actually want to use the tax power to justify the mandate, because raising taxes always makes them look bad. Instead, they argued that the mandate was Constitutional under the Commerce clause. Roberts explicitly ruled that the mandate was not justifiable under the Commerce Clause because compelling people to buy things did not count as regulating commerce. So although the mandate was Constitutional under the taxing power, Roberts actually managed to limit the government's power. Losing the battle but winning the war.

Also, a conservative justice ruling in favor of Obama's law restored some faith in the Supreme Court, which was badly needed after the Citizens United decision was decided on ideological lines.

Is it so difficult to get proper bargaining of prices for medical supplies, significantly lower the cost of healthcare, and spend the saved money on healthcare for everyone in the country for absolutely free, or tax a little more in return for complete health care security? Oh yeah, it is. What a shame, really. It works so well other places
#231 to #112 - endospore (10/23/2013) [-]
That argument simply doesn't work. Other places aren't America. Do other countries have 300,000,000 people? Do other countries have 50 different states, each with their own laws, regulations, governments and cultures? Imagine if the EU tried to enact a single universal healthcare policy for every country in the union that had to be the exact same everywhere. For example, it has to deal with the massive aging population of Greece while still being affordable to the young, poor populations of Slovakia and Romania.

Also by the EU's own admission (source: ec.europa.eu/social/main.jsp?catId=754&langId=en ) there are huge gaps between countries and some countries don't have coverage yet. That's the only reason it works, is because each country is given control, yet that doesn't work in America. Can you imagine if the federal government mandated California have high quality, affordable healthcare while it left Ohio to fend for itself? You simply can't do what the EU does in America.

Is it Math or Maths? - Numberphile
User avatar #36 - imnotanig (10/23/2013) [-]
"Math class" sounds more natural in my opinion because class is singular. "Maths class" isn't technically wrong, but a "s" on the end makes it look like a plural and singular word being used to describe a singular subject. I mean mathematics is a plural word, and math is an abbreviation of the word, so technically math itself is already plural I think.

Not a grammar Nazi, but I like my dip, my whiskey, and my football. **** "clean English". 'Murica.
#236 to #36 - twentyten (10/23/2013) [-]
Mathematics is not a plural word though. Example: which is correct. Mathematics is annoying as **** . OR Mathematics are annoying as **** .
User avatar #281 to #236 - imnotanig (10/24/2013) [-]
mathematics, in the sense your saying is actually assuming the word class behind it, Like Mathematics (class) is annoying. But mathematics are annoying is saying that there are multiple mathematics, which there are.
#286 to #281 - twentyten (10/24/2013) [-]
Wouldn't it be considered a collective noun and therefore still a singular noun? Like the word physics, or economics.
User avatar #291 to #286 - imnotanig (10/24/2013) [-]
well i think we found a hole in the english language haha, but i think mathmatic isn't a word, so math is an abbreviation for mathematics, so i don't think you just add the s to math.
#292 to #291 - twentyten (10/24/2013) [-]
A hole? There are many holes in the English language. The word mathematics is odd because it's a collective noun that has an abbreviation. There aren't many words like that I don't think. It's kind of an exception. I don't know any examples of abbreviations with an s at the end like that.
User avatar #293 to #292 - imnotanig (10/24/2013) [-]
yeah i know there is a lot of holes lol, math to me me makes more sense, but it also just may seem so because that's the way i've heard it since i was a child. Maybe we need websters to make a decision for us

You call it Math it is more correct that maths. "Math is not fun" is correct "Maths are not fun" is incorrect. Math is not a plural. Mathematics IS interesting. I can go on and on mathematics is not a plural you make it agree with singular verbs.

#47 to #8 - nousernameallowed (10/23/2013) [-]
I think it's also because maths is short for mathematics, which has an 's'. No one says they have mathematic in the morning.
User avatar #221 - craptola (10/23/2013) [-]
Actually as a British person I agree with the yanks on this one. Just because mathematics ends in an "s" doesn't mean that it's plural. You don't treat the word mathematics as if it was plural either. eg you would say "mathematics is interesting" instead of "mathematics are interesting." This video goes into greater detail:

You're trying to apply logic to a language that has the same word to describe mutually exclusive terms.

You may well be right that "math" makes more sense but as English originated from Britain "maths" is correct regardless.
#234 to #227 - doctorkolo (10/23/2013) [-]

They clearly state that math. was used as an abbreviation for mathematics for the first time in 1847, maths. was first used in 1911.

So you're saying if it were reversed, and the british were saying math and the u.s. maths (hypothetically of course), then the british would be still correct solely because english is their language (and whatever they say goes), even though these abbreviations are fairly modern?

I can't speak for everyone else, but when we had 'Science class' we would call it the lesson on which we were dong. I had three science classes over my time in school which were Physics, Biology and Chemistry. So for which we were doing, we would call it that.

Oh, I see.. So would it just completely mess your economy up if you did introduce free healthcare?
User avatar #253 to #249 - winsauceiswin (10/23/2013) [-]
the problem is that a lot of americans are on benefits sustained by the working class and right now more are on benefits funded by working class tax dollars that people are getting fed up with it. the health care would be free to those who were poor but be very costly to those who were working class and had their own health care. with the addition for a tax penalty for choosing NOT to partake in the obamacare americans see it as unfair for people who 1. don't want to pay higher taxes for someone else's benefit and 2. don't want to partake in obamacare and be penalized for it.

it was said once that without obamacare amaerica's health system gets an F but WITH obamacare america's health system gets a D- and i think that's true. it's a good concept but it'd being poorly executed. the campaign isn't against free healthcare it's against the method to which the government intends to obtain it.
User avatar #255 to #253 - Capit (10/23/2013) [-]
well, one of the problems is that our healthcare system is a for-profit system. It's a bit ****** up and needs to change, but its difficult to change something like that overnight. And having our government give our tax money to a for-profit business is just not something a lot of people are comfortable with.
User avatar #254 to #249 - Capit (10/23/2013) [-]
Well, its not free. We'd pay for it through taxes. I personally would support it, but it would screw over a lot of people. I should add that one of the reasons that people really are against it is a law/bill/whatever that they passed a month or two ago, that everyone is required to have health insurance. It might not sound like a bad idea, and everyone should have it, but a lot of lower income people just cannot afford the payments. That is pretty much how it would be with socialized healthcare here, you'd be guaranteed medical care without the possibility of being thousands of dollars in debt, but you'd also be giving up a lot of your income.
#251 to #243 - John Cena (10/23/2013) [-]
