  • Media Fail: America More Interested in Amber Heard-Johnny Depp Trial than Abortion

    Breitbart ^ | May 18, 2022 | Alana Mastrangelo
    Americans are more interested in Johnny Depp’s defamation trial against Amber Heard than abortion, despite the establishment media’s hysteria and hyping the recent leaked Supreme Court draft opinion overruling Roe v. Wade. News about the defamation trial between Depp and Heard has amassed more total social media interactions (likes, comments, and shares) than the country’s biggest news stories, such as the the leaked Supreme Court draft opinion, Russia’s war in Ukraine, and inflation, according to data from NewsWhip.
  • 'I can't even fathom that ... just like you probably can't imagine what you would do if your daughter was raped': Abortion doctor responds when Republican Rep. asks if children can still be terminated if they are 'halfway out of the birth canal'

    A Congressional hearing on abortion access grew heated on Wednesday when Republican Rep. Mike Johnson of Louisiana demanded a gynecologist give her stance on performing the procedure when an infant is 'halfway out of the birth canal.' The doctor shot back that she could not even 'fathom' such a scenario, adding as a comparison: 'Just like you probably can't imagine what you would do if your daughter was raped.' The House Judiciary Committee is hearing from a panel of experts including Dr. Yashica Robinson, a board-certified OB-GYN and a board member with Physicians for Reproductive Health, as tensions mount over...

    A former Disney intern has been arrested after threatening to blow up Cinderella Castle in Walt Disney World with a bomb. On May 16, U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers (CBP) arrested Canadian resident 22-year-old Matthew Carney at the Ogdensburg Port of Entry, which connects Canada and New York. According to Fox 35, Carney was part of a Disney internship program when he made the threat back in July 2019. The Miami Herald reported that the incident began when he walked through a metal detector at Magic Kingdom without setting it off and told the security guards, “it's ok if...
  • Mystery issue experienced on NASA's Voyager 1 probe from 1977

    CNN Fake News and Pervert Factory ^ | 18 May 2022 | Ashley Strickland
    The Voyager 1 probe is still exploring interstellar space 45 years after launching, but it has encountered an issue that mystifies the spacecraft's team on Earth. Voyager 1 continues to operate well, despite its advanced age and 14.5 billion-mile distance (23.3 billion kilometers) from Earth. And it can receive and execute commands sent from NASA, as well as gather and send back science data. But the readouts from the attitude articulation and control system, which control the spacecraft's orientation in space, don't match up with what Voyager is actually doing. The attitude articulation and control system, or AACS, ensures that...

    Valerie Biden Owens, younger sister to President Biden, told reporters Wednesday that her brother is "absolutely" going to run for re-election in 2024. In an interview with "Good Morning Britain," Biden Owens praised her brother's performance. She went on to claim the president was a perfect fit for the situation the U.S. currently finds itself in. "Joe is the right person at the right time for the right job," Biden Owens said. "There's lot of things still to do." Pressed by her interviewer on whether she believed Biden would be running for re-election in 2024 despite his low approval ratings...

    The Drive ^ | 18 May 2022 | PETER HOLDERITH
    ... this is one of those times—extra warranties turn out to be worth every penny. One such decade-long warranty on a 2012 Kia Sorento expired last week. Thanks to a Reddit post by a mechanic at the dealership where the car was serviced, we know its unlimited-mile, 10-year service agreement enabled it to travel over half a million miles while supposedly going through nine engines. That's just the tip of the iceberg, too. Thanks to the extensive service records the owner kept, the repairs done to a Kia that averaged 60,800 miles a year are fully known, and it isn't...

    Explanation: Cloudy skies plagued some sky watchers on Sunday as May's Full Flower Moon slipped through Earth's shadow in a total lunar eclipse. In skies above Chile's Atacama desert this telephoto snapshot still captured an awesome spectacle though. Seen through thin high cirrus clouds just before totality began, a last sliver of sunlit crescent glistens like a hazy jewel atop the mostly shadowed lunar disk. This full moon was near perigee, the closest point in its elliptical orbit. It passed near the center of Earth's dark umbral shadow during the 90 minute long total eclipse phase. Faintly suffused with sunlight...

    The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette ^ | May 17, 2022 | Luke Guzelis
    Many news stories stress that our ecosystems are under assault by Burmese pythons and Asian carp. This leads people to conclude that it is the less charismatic fauna such as reptiles and fish that are the most threatening of invasive species. Proposed amendments to the Lacey Act that the U.S. House passed Feb. 4 seem to perpetuate this narrative, with a proposed ban on all exotic animal species moving across state lines. (The 122-year-old Lacey Act bans trafficking in illegally taken fish, wildlife, and plants.) But one animal that the International Union for Conservation of Nature considers among the world’s...

    Pollution cuts more lives short worldwide than war, terrorism, malaria, HIV, tuberculosis, drugs or alcohol.That's the takeaway of a report published Tuesday in The Lancet Planetary Health, which analyzed the combined health risks of air, water and toxic chemical pollution in 2019. The results show that pollution is responsible for around 9 million premature deaths each year, or one in six globally. That puts its toll on par with smoking."We haven't been yelling from the top of the streets, saying, 'Look at this!' loud enough,'" said Richard Fuller, the report's lead author and the founder and CEO of the nonprofit...

    Princeton University is planning to fire one of the most distinguished classics professors in the country, Joshua Katz, after his criticism of the school’s racial politics made him the target of student protests and the subject of two separate university investigations. University president Christopher Eisgruber—who in 2020 alleged that Katz had failed to exercise his free speech "responsibly"—passed his recommendation that Katz be stripped of tenure and fired to the university’s board of trustees last week, according to three sources with firsthand knowledge of the situation.

As I am certain we are dealing with a lab created pathogen that induces amyloidosis in humans (at least, perhaps other species, too?) I decided to investigate what has been done in the past, as the mechanisms I am looking for, I do not believe I would find in the natural pathogenesis of amyloidosis.Indeed, there is an extensive history of amyloidosis being experimentally...
