    USSA News ^ | 7/06/20
    A study conducted by a Professor at San Diego State University has discovered that people who are easily offended make terrible employees because they never get anything done. The study, conducted by Dr. Jeremy Berneth, involved asking almost 400 employees, aged 25.9 on average, across seven US colleges about different events that have recently gotten “substantial media attention”. The study notes that the events consisted of “17 items developed to assess the proclivity to be offended, eight moral outrage items, 11 microagression items and nine political correctness items.” It noted that some people have a high “proclivity to be offended”...
  • A Second Major COVID-19 Study Is Retracted; First the Lancet, Now the New England Journal of Medicine

    First, the highly respected Lancet medical journal retracted a major study about hydroxychloroquine. And now, the esteemed New England Journal of Medicine has yanked another study, this one concerning COVID-19 and blood pressure drugs. Both studies relied on data supplied by a U.S. analytics company called Surgisphere. “A Guardian investigation can reveal the US-based company Surgisphere, whose handful of employees appear to include a science fiction writer and an adult-content model, has provided data for multiple studies on Covid-19 co-authored by its chief executive, but has so far failed to adequately explain its data or methodology,” The Guardian reported. "A...
  • Growing up in Evangelical communities increases porn viewership in non-religious teenagers

    New research has found a link between religious environments in the United States and porn-viewing among youth. The study, published in Deviant Behavior, strengthens the findings of existing research by using multilevel data to account for important differences between individuals. Even after accounting for confounding variables, the researchers found that county-level religious adherence rates still increased the odds of watching porn during adolescence by 66.53%, regardless of religious identity. Similarly, youth were more likely to report viewing pornography in counties with a higher share of conservative Protestants, especially among youth who were not conservative Protestants themselves.

That wasn’t that long ago, and even though we’ve made tremendous advancements in our understanding of our situation here in space, we still have huge blind spots.For one, we’re only now waking up to the reality of interstellar objects passing through our Solar System. In 2017, Oumuamua came for a brief visit, and was confirmed as an interstellar object. It’ll never return, and will spend an eternity travelling through the...
  • VA Hydroxychloroquine use has provided few answers around agency's virus study, veteran advocates say

    Veterans advocates say they are frustrated at the lack of transparency around the Department of Veterans Affairs' use of the unproven drug hydroxychloroquine as a treatment for the coronavirus. After the release of a preliminary study of veterans hospitalized with COVID-19 last week that showed that hydroxychloroquine — an anti-malaria drug touted by President Donald Trump — had no benefit and caused a greater rate of deaths, the groups want answers and are worried that they may have been misled by the agency on its recent purchase of the drug. Jeremy Butler, CEO of Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America,...

    A study in China has suggested that the deadly coronavirus may have spread among people at a restaurant due to its air conditioning. The study was published in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s journal Emerging Infectious Diseases. Researchers examined 10 coronavirus patients from three families who had visited the same restaurant in China’s Guangzhou for dinner. One of the families had just travelled from Wuhan, the epicentre of coronavirus in China. The three families dined at the restaurant while sitting at neighbouring tables on 24 January. Later that day, a person of the family that had come from...

    Over 3,200 people in Santa Clara County were tested for COVID-19 antibodies on Friday and Saturday in an effort to determine the proportion of the population that either has or has recovered from coronavirus. The study, led by researchers at Stanford Medicine, is the first of its kind in the nation. The results, expected to be released within a week, could be used to guide future public health policy in the county, according to associate professor of medicine and study co-lead Eran Bendavid.
  • Avoiding Sodas May Be Good for Your Heart, New Research Suggests

    Replacing saturated fat with healthy fats is the main dietary step people take to improve cholesterol and triglyceride levels. But according to a study published in February in the Journal of the American Heart Association, avoiding soda may also have a positive effect. Researchers from Tufts and Boston universities wanted to explore how people’s intakes of different beverages might affect dyslipidemia, an unhealthy imbalance of cholesterol and triglycerides in the blood that increases the risk of heart disease. They looked at just over 12 years’ worth of data from about 6,000 adult participants in the Framingham Heart Study, a long-term,...
  • Nevada Governor Found Hoarding Hydroxychloroquine After Banning Drug

    04/04/2020 3:40:07 PM PDT · by Kaslin · 89 replies ^ | April 4, 2020 | Bronson Stocking
    Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak, Democrat, had a kneejerk reaction to President Trump's optimism about a malaria drug that might be an effective treatment for the Wuhan coronavirus. Trump was hopeful about the drug, so anti-Trump Democrats like Sisolak were against it. Gov. Sisolak banned (hydroxy)chloroquine as a treatment for COVID-19, ostensibly over concern of hoarders stockpiling the medicine and causing shortages for patients who use the drug for other ailments like Lupus and Rheumatoid Arthritis. But while the governor restricted the public from receiving the potentially life-saving drug, Nevada's Department of Corrections began stockpiling the drug for prisoners. (Via 360...

    A new Oxford study said that millions of people in the United Kingdom (and therefore, in other countries) have likely already gotten the coronavirus, recovered from it, and are immune. But the mainstream media doesn’t want this information to get out, and some went to work quickly telling people “not to believe it.” A newer model, which predicts the progression of the novel coronavirus, set off governments’ reactions around the globe and has systematically ruined lives across the Western world (not because of the virus, but the reaction to it). pandemic produced by researchers at Imperial College London set off...

    “Stealth” coronavirus cases are fueling the pandemic, with a staggering 86% of people infected walking around undetected, a new study says. Six of every seven cases – 86% — were not reported in China before travel restrictions were implemented, driving the spread of the virus, according to a study Monday in the journal Science. “It’s the undocumented infections which are driving the spread of the outbreak,” said co-author Jeffrey Shaman of Columbia University Mailman School, according to GeekWire. Using computer modeling, researchers tracked infections before and after the Chinese city of Wuhan’s travel ban.

    Development of a proposed hyperloop transportation system linking Pittsburgh, Cleveland and Chicago would not only be a boon to communities along the travel corridors but also would be a strong business investment. That’s the conclusion of a 157-page feasibility study released Monday in Cleveland by the Northeast Ohio Areawide Coordinating Agency and Hyperloop Transportation Technologies Inc., a California-based company developing the technology to move passengers and freight at more than 500 mph through low-pressure tubes. Consultant Transportation Economics and Management Systems performed the $1.3 million study of the proposed Great Lakes Hyperloop System. For the first time, the study estimated...

    A distinctive jutting jawline seen in dozens of pictures from the Habsburg dynasty of Spanish and Austrian kings was caused by inbreeding, researchers have found. The family intermarried multiple times, securing power and influence across a European empire for 200 years - but it carried with it an unusual by-product. The distinctive ‘Habsburg jaw’ can be seen in dozens of paintings, and researchers analysed the deformity, comparing it to the degree of relatedness in the kings and wives pictured in the images. Professor Roman Vilas from the University of Santiago de Compostela said, "The Habsburg dynasty was one of the...

    If you make a face like a kid swallowing cough syrup at the mere suggestion of Brussels sprouts, you might have the DNA of a “super taster,” a genotype that makes the bitter chemicals in these foods taste practically intolerable, according to recent research to be presented at the American Heart Association’s Scientific Sessions 2019 this weekend in Philadelphia. Everyone inherits two copies of a taste gene called TAS2R38. The particular variants you’re born with determine how sensitive or not you are to bitter tastes from certain chemicals such as glucosinolates, commonly found in cruciferous vegetables like Brussels sprouts, cabbage,...

    Will a hyperloop work in Pennsylvania? That’s the question officials from legislative and executive branches, statewide agencies, organizations and departments, as well as a handful of private business leaders are trying to answer. Fifty people, invited to a workshop at Dixon University in Harrisburg on Wednesday, met to talk about the possibility of building a hyperloop system in the commonwealth. The Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission has until April 2020 to complete a $2 million state-legislative commissioned study on its viability. Media wasn’t permitted to attend the invitation-only meeting. According to the turnpike’s research, a hyperloop combines a magnetic levitation train and...

    A high-speed transit system through the mountain corridor could serve as a major economic boon to communities on the Western Slope, according to a new study recently published by Development Research Partners. A high-speed transit system — likely in the form of a train that would carry passengers and light freight between Denver International Airport and Eagle County Regional Airport — was listed in the 2011 Record of Decision issued by the Colorado Department of Transportation and the Federal Highways Administration as a potential long-term solution to dealing with congestion on Interstate 70. Late last year, stakeholders — including the...

    The traffic jams over the Occoquan are so much worse than on any other part of Interstate 95 in Virginia that they throw off the scale of a review of potential traffic improvements for I-95 from North Carolina to the Potomac River. Initial analysis ahead of public meetings this week to identify the Virginia trouble spots shows people spend more than 1.2 million hours a year in delays in just the 1-mile southbound stretch over the Occoquan River. The miles leading up to that are only slightly better, regularly slowed to around 30 mph. Overall, at least 70% of delays...

    A subsea tunnel across the Strait of Belle Isle is back in conversation once again after a report was tabled this month in Ottawa. The federal government’s standing committee on transport, infrastructure, and communities is now calling on the federal government to work with the provinces of Newfoundland and Labrador and Quebec, as well, as the private sector, to build a fixed link across the Strait of Belle Isle and complete Route 138 along the Quebec Lower North Shore. The tunnel would link Point Amour in Labrador to Yankee Point on the Great Northern Peninsula in Newfoundland. The project would...

    By now supporters of the president have grown very weary of hearing him called a “racist” and a “bigot” by perpetually angry Leftists who can’t come up with coherent arguments against his policies, so name-calling is all they have. Naturally, the propaganda-disposed “Mainstream” media has enabled and propagated the narrative that Americans elected a white supremacist to our highest office. But a pair of researchers at the University of Pennsylvania beg to differ. They have just produced a new study showing that racism under POTUS Donald Trump has fallen, and in a statistically significant way.
