    New insights into the pathogenesis of Alzheimer's disease could unlock novel therapeutic approaches and help to prevent the disease. A study has shed light on a bidirectional interaction in the body's fat metabolism that could play an important role in the development of the disease. Dietary and other lifestyle factors such as smoking also play a role. One protein that is known to play a key role in Alzheimer's disease is the amyloid-beta peptide. "This small amyloid-beta protein accumulates in the form of hardened plaques within a patient's brain. Amyloid-beta is a key element in the development of Alzheimer's and...

    Planned Parenthood financier Charles Munger died on November 28, 2023, at age 99, after “spending more than four decades as [Warren] Buffett’s second-in-command and foil atop Berkshire Hathaway Inc.,” according to Reuters. The two men met in Omaha in 1959. Like Buffett, Charles Munger (or “Charlie,” as he was often called) was also an abortion philanthropist, who served on Planned Parenthood’s board and even helped Buffett create a ‘church’ to help women get illegal abortions. Who was Charles Munger? previously noted how Munger “worked in real estate for several years before starting a successful investment firm that eventually caught...
  • EPA: Few Stations Show Increase in Hot Days; only 19% of all weather stations report an increase in the number of hot days since 1948!

    As reported by EPA, only 19% of all weather stations report an increase in the number of hot days since 1948!Below is an important chart that somehow slipped by EPA’s “consensus” censorship squad. It is a map of all 1,066 weather stations across the United States. The change in the number of hot days for that station are ID’d as increasing (red), stayed the same (blank) or decreasing (blue).A total of 863 stations, or 81%, reported either a decrease or no change in the number of hot days! Any guesses on how long this map will remain up on their...
  • CHit-CHat-RAnt | Special request: Can we please have a televised debate between Alejandro Mayorkas and a random long time resident of NYC? And with Dave Chappelle as the moderator?

    After watching two high level politicians (Newsome and Desantis) evade questions for over two hours, it seems to me like the masterevader (hmmm..) himself, A.Mayorkas, would be comic relief. In fact, just have extra points given for the most ridiculously off-topic answer and also for the laughter meter from the live audience. Let Dave Chappelle be the moderator and the off-aire sponsors be the most popular popcorn brands.
  • Another cowardly non-answer (from Gov. Ron DeSantis)

    Twitter/X ^ | Dec 3 | @julie_kelly2
    @julie_kelly2 Another cowardly non-answer. In fact, I can’t think of a worse response to a line of questioning that could’ve resulted in a home run answer. DeSantis absolutely refuses to condemn DOJ’s ongoing prosecution of both Trump and J6ers. He cannot even bring himself to say January 6 and instead pulls out the well-worn “parents at school boards.” Further, he accepts Welker’s premise about how Trump would use his power and doesn’t openly laugh in her face about the vermin-Nazi connection or immediately pivot to specific instances of Biden doing exactly what the Left now claims Trump will do. “Retribution...

    Michelle Obama can predict the future. Well, she can shape it anyway. Back in 2012, she stood before the assembled throng at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina, and said words that are still shaping elections a decade later. “Let’s be clear,” Michelle said, “elections aren’t just about who votes but who doesn’t vote.” Today, we finally understand what she meant. Here’s what happened: just a few weeks after Biden moved out of his basement and into the Oval Office, he was handed a piece of paper to sign – a paper that set in motion an extremely...

REP.

    CNBC ^ | Aditi Shrikant
    According to a recent survey by Change Research, the biggest dating red flag for men is when someone identifies as a communist. A whopping 64% said this political leaning would be a turnoff. Communism is a far-left ideology that advocates for all wealth and property to be communally owned. Coming in second place was having no hobbies, followed by identifying as a "MAGA Republican." The survey did not specify the sexual orientation of respondents.

    The world’s first tampons for men have been criticised by feminist campaigners as an “insult” to women who suffer period discrimination.Vuokkoset, a Finnish company released the controversial new sanitary product earlier this month to coincide with Transgender Awareness week and International Men’s day.The product comes in a dark blue box which bears the words “For Men” on one side, but then extends this phrase around the packaging so it eventually reads “For Menstruation”.On another side of the packet it is stated that “periods are not a gender issue”.Vuokkoset has said in a statement online that it launched the period product...

    Fourteen Hawaiian school students are suing the transport department for infringing on their right to grow up in a healthy environment by polluting it with greenhouse gases. Ranging in age from 10 to 19, the plaintiffs claim they have been 'seriously injured' due to the government violating constitutional pledges to decarbonize the transport sector by 2045. Their complaint says global warming is threatening age-old agricultural industries in Hawaii, while rising sea levels are projected to wipe out entire communities within the plaintiffs' lifetimes. It also laments the emotional distress suffered by the young Pacific islanders - sparked by 'climate anxiety'...

    If you’re of a certain vintage, you’ll remember how inflexibly tribal music fans used to be. If you were, say, an alternative kid, you wouldn’t dream of listening to anything the rock kids were. It just wasn’t done. Admitting you liked the odd Black Sabbath or Van Halen song risked jeopardizing your relationship with the other alt kids. And because you were already known as someone who preferred Joy Division over Judas Priest, the rockers would have nothing to do with you. Might as well go die on an iceberg somewhere. There are still silos among music fans, but they’re...

    Former Republican Rep. Liz Cheney would rather cede power to Democrats than see members of her own party win in 2024, she said, calling a Republican majority a “threat,” and warning of an existential crisis leading up to next year’s election. “I believe very strongly in those principles and ideals that have defined the Republican Party, but the Republican Party of today has made a choice and they haven’t chosen the Constitution, and so I do think it presents a threat if the Republicans are in the majority in January 2025,” the Wyoming Republican said during an interview with CBS,...

    Explanation: These people are not in danger. What is coming down from the left is just the Moon, far in the distance. Luna appears so large here because she is being photographed through a telescopic lens. What is moving is mostly the Earth, whose spin causes the Moon to slowly disappear behind Mount Teide, a volcano in the Canary Islands off the northwest coast of Africa. The people pictured are 16 kilometers away and many are facing the camera because they are watching the Sun rise behind the photographer. It is not a coincidence that a full moon rises just...

    A blind golden mole that can swim through sand has been discovered in South Africa after being thought to be extinct for 87 years. A group of experts from the Endangered Wildlife Trust (EWT) and the University of Pretoria used DNA and a sniffer dog in a two-year search. They rediscovered the De Winton’s golden mole in the sand dunes of northwest South Africa. The rare De Winton’s golden mole hadn’t been seen since 1936. Before that, it was only found in a small area in Port Nolloth in the Northern Cape. These creatures, about the size of a mouse...
