How can a negative HIV test affect a person's insurance premiums?

I'm a health care professional, and I recently read on a physician's blog that a negative HIV test on your health record may affect life or health insurance premiums. I have a vague idea of why this might be, but if any infectious disease, insurance or other professionals could shed some light on this, please explain!

Extent of "grope/enhanced patdown"???

I'm going to be flying next month, and I'm already annoyed/upset, etc... about the pornoscanners and groping issue, but I'm even more nervous now due to one article I read and am wondering if I'm misunderstanding the groping issue and it is actually WORSE than I already believe it to be: Is the "enhanced patdown" an actual under/inside the clothes grabbing of genitals? I can't find a clear statement on the TSA site (great PR, not so great information architecture) and one blog explicitly detailed the touching of her labia but other blog posts I've seen can be read either way (as underclothes contact or overclothes, they're not particularly clear). Help???

Can't Figure Out Why I Can't Figure It Out

Warning: wait to read this question until tomorrow if you are in Learned League. So, today one of the Learned League questions was, What is the y-intercept of the line with the following equation?: 3y-11x = 39. I couldn't get any further than y = 13 + 3 2/3 x or y = 13 +3.66666x. Actually it appears the response is 13. How does one get to the right response for this question?

Math question re continuity

A function is continuous over a closed interval [a,b] ***(1) if it is continuous over the open interval (a,b) and ***(2) the lim as x approaches a from the right = f(a) and the limit as x approaches b from the left =f(b). Can someone describe a function over a closed interval that fails continuity by either or both of condition (2)?

Fundraising Filter: Roller Derby League

I'm part of a fairly new (7 months old) roller derby league in a mid-sized city (150K+ people). We just had our first bout and were sold out at 850 seats. We are looking for ideas for an event in January that is both a fundraiser and something that will get the community excited for our next bout. We are in the midwest so something indoors would be best. Any ideas from the hive?

Looking for cat sitter in south Austin

We've just moved to the southern part of Austin (about 1 mile NW of the I-35/71 interchange) and we're out of our current pet sitter's regular driving range. She's covering us for this weekend and for Thanksgiving but it's a significant extra mileage fee, so we're looking for personal recommendations for a cat sitter in the area for the future, starting with Christmas. If you can find us someone sooner, we'll be extra grateful, but we are covered for this month. In accordance with cat-related AskMe rules, Linnete and Laudine appreciate your help.
