    Monday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” network host Al Sharpton addressed what he referred to as “latte liberals,” who he described as liberals who are not aware of the progress being made in the black community as they sit in the Hamptons and drink lattes. Sharpton lamented that a particular group of liberals has “taken advantage” of the “pain” of black people and people of the LGBTQ community rather than trying to ease their pain.

    By Joseph Carson, former chief economist at Alliance BernsteinToday’s Consumer Inflation Cycle Comes With Yesteryear Denial, Problems & ConsequencesConsumer price inflation is experiencing its most significant increases in decades. Yet, reported inflation does not capture the full scale and breadth of experienced inflation. I never thought the US would experience rampant inflation again, but based on the 1970s price measurement methods, the US experienced double-digit inflation in the past twelve months. Today’s Inflation CycleIn May, the consumer price index (CPI) rose 0.6%, pushing the twelve-month increase to 5%, the most significant increase since 2008. Core CPI rose 0.7%, lifting the...

    New Delhi -- At a time when the country is passing through the second wave of Covid-19, Delhi-based Sir Gangaram Hospital claims that monoclonal antibody can be a game changer with its better hold on the deadly pandemic. As per the hospital, the monoclonal antibodies will change the scenario of Covid-19 pandemic very soon. The healthcare facility came with new findings after treatment of two patients recently at its centre by successfully using monoclonal antibody which showed fast progression of symptoms within first seven days and changed the outcome. A 36-year-old healthcare worker with high grade fever, cough, myalgia, severe...
  • Study finds ‘robust evidence’ that alcohol is a very effective painkiller

    You’ve heard of people “drinking away their pain,” but a new study has scientifically proven that alcohol is actually an effective painkiller.University of Greenwich’s Trevor Thompson led the review study that looked at 18 different experiments which tested the reactions of more than 400 healthy people. Their reactions were measured when exposed to controlled pain (such as heat, cold and pressure) both without alcohol and under the influence of alcohol.Thompson concluded that there is “robust evidence that alcohol is an effective painkiller.”“Although the finding that alcohol results in reduced pain might seem obvious to many people, results from individual studies...
  • Why Redheads Feel Less Pain, According to Scientists

    In a seemingly paradoxical study, US researchers found that redheads have a preternaturally high pain tolerance — wait for it — due to a mechanism that ups their susceptibility to sunburns. “These findings describe the mechanistic basis behind earlier evidence suggesting varied pain thresholds in different pigmentation backgrounds,” said Dr. David Fisher of the Massachusetts General Hospital in Massachusetts. He led the fiery study published in the journal Science Advances. The research found that the cells that determine skin color — called melanocytes — play a large role in deciding how people experience pain.

    The reason For My Faith ^ | 1/29/21 | Chuck Ness
    “Why didn’t God just create us so that we would never have to experience pain, suffering, or sadness?”After all, God has the power to make the world free of evil, yet He chose instead to make us creatures with free will. Thus, free will was the door left open for the possibility of evil entering our lives. Then one must ask, "What's the purpose of pain, suffering? Why does God allow humans, who were made in His image, to live on a planet where evil abounds?"Well, God could have made us perfect without the ability to sin, and we...

    Distance running with an upper-body amputation is a war against instability. Muscles can strain so much to compensate for the missing limb that they contort your spine, misalign your shoulders, and worsen your imbalance. In 2017, Ashley Jones—then 15 years old—faced a punishing return to high school sports following the amputation of her right arm. On the soccer field, she had collisions so violent that the pain would bring her to the brink of blackout. Later, during cross-country runs, the jostling of the amputation site intensified her phantom pain—which she’d already rated 7 out of 10 on normal days—to as...
  • Scientists discover area of brain where pain could be 'turned off'

    A study conducted by researchers from Duke University in Durham, North Carolina, have found that the amygdala in mice's brain can significantly control their sense of pain. According to Fan Wang, the lead author of the study and the Morris N. Broad Distinguished Professor of neurobiology in the School of Medicine, recent studies have determined parts of the brain that could 'turn on' pain signals, but this was the first time they were able to pinpoint where pain could be 'turned off.' The researchers also discovered that general anesthesia also stimulates a specific subgroup of inhibitory neurons in the central...
  • CAMPAIGN AD? WashPost Prints a Three-Page Tribute to 'Warrior-Heroine' Nancy Pelosi(BARFY!/pic alert)

    03/30/2020 7:58:06 AM PDT · by rktman · 16 replies
    On the last Sunday in March a year ago, The Washington Post Magazine published a goopy cover story titled "Pelosi's Moment." On the last Sunday in March this year, The Post published an "Opinion Essay" in the A section that went on for three pages (with eight photographs) celebrating Pelosi as "A troublemaker with a gavel." Reporter-turned-columnist Karen Tumulty wrote what sounded like a very long, saccharine Hallmark greeting card for Pelosi's 80th birthday. She has been the target of thousands of Republican campaign ads, though that assault failed spectacularly in 2018, when Democrats swept the midterm elections and regained...

    It’s as if the barnyard animals sense the wolf pack circling and approaching ever closer. The latest screeching and squealing noises heard from the corralled Democrats in D.C. are coming from House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler who sent a letter to Attorney General William Barr expressing “serious concern” about the Department of Justice (DOJ) receiving Biden-Ukraine information from Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani “outside of normal channels.” Nadler’s four-page letter charged that the process by which the DOJ has accepted info from Giuliani “would seem to be a significant departure from traditional channels,” and he demanded answers regarding the DOJ’s new...

  • Activation of opioid receptor uncovered

    Together with colleagues from Shanghai, Brussels, Canada and the USA, researchers from the University of Bonn have uncovered the binding mechanism of an important pain receptor. The results facilitate the development of new active substances. The opioids used today to treat severe pain can be addictive and sometimes have life-threatening side effects. The results of this new research are published in the renowned journal Science Advances. Opioids are among the most effective painkillers available today. They include, for instance, morphine or oxycodone, which has been prescribed very carelessly in the USA, with serious consequences: Hundreds of thousands of patients have...
  • Pain Pills Are Not Killers. And The Sun Rises In The East. Who Knew?

    Of the 2916 people who died in Massachusetts between 2013-2015 (and had complete toxicology reports): 1789 (61%) had heroin detected. 1322 (45%) had fentanyl detected. Only 39 (1.3%) of the decedents who had a prescription opioid detected in their body had an active (legal) prescription for that opioid on the day they died. In other words, 98.7% of the people who died and had a prescription drug in their body obtained that drug illegally (not by prescription). This confirms that it is (and has been) the abuse, not the use of opioids that is killing people. Properly managed pain patients...

    Women’s rugby referees in England are quitting their jobs over the inclusion of the male athletes, according to a report in The Sunday Times this weekend. “Being forced to prioritize hurt feelings over broken bones exposes me to personal litigation from female players who have been damaged by players who are biologically male. This is driving female players and referees out of the game,” one referee told the British paper under the condition of anonymity.

    Wrongful death case.

  • Women May Be More Adept Than Men At Discerning Pain

    NPR ^ | 08/26/2019
    The pathway to opioid abuse for women often starts with a prescription from the doctor's office. One reason is that women are more likely than men to seek help for pain. Pain researchers say that not only do women suffer more painful conditions, they actually perceive pain more intensely than men do. "The burden of pain is substantially greater for women than men," says researcher and psychologist Roger Fillingim, "and that led pain researchers like myself to wonder if the pain perception system is different in women than in men." For more than two decades, Fillingim has been studying gender...

    A family of street performers could walk on coals. Here’s how the secret of why they felt no pain could benefit others. The street performer was only 10 years old. He put knives through his arms and walked on hot embers. By 14 he was dead. Someone dared him to jump from a roof. He did it, knowing it wouldn’t hurt. The case of the Pakistani boy with a rare genetic disorder was described in 2006. He could feel warmth and cold and the texture of objects. But he never felt pain. Now scientists have paired the discovery with the...

Our depression is our lives… We have been raised by television to believe that we’ll be millionaires and movie gods and rock stars – but we won’t… And we’re very, very pissed off. With the release of David Fincher’s Fight Club in the aftermath of the Columbine high school killings, fears about representational violence resounded in the popular press. This response was not surprising in that Fight Club tells the story of an unnamed...
