  • Goodbye Cigarettes – Scientists Discover Potential Treatment for Nicotine Dependence

    10/05/2023 11:40:19 AM PDT · by Red Badger · 35 replies
    Researchers found that theta-burst transcranial magnetic stimulation (TBS) can improve self-control, resulting in reduced cigarette cravings and decreased smoking. The study revealed that people with nicotine dependence show different brain structures and functions, with these differences possibly affecting their inhibitory control, making it harder to resist the urge to smoke. Theta-burst transcranial magnetic stimulation treatment could reduce cigarette cravings. A recent study from the University of Missouri School of Medicine indicates a potential alternative method to address cigarette cravings. The research demonstrates that by using theta-burst transcranial magnetic stimulation (TBS) – powerful and quickly changing magnetic pulses that influence brain...

    Celebrities pretty much lost their minds when the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade and returned abortion policy to the states. Even that anti-cyberbullying activist Monica Lewinsky turned abusive on Twitter with the F-bombs. But Christian Toto at Hollywood in Toto noted late-night TBS "comedian" Samantha Bee took it one step further. She lobbied the American people to "raise hell" and disturb the peace for the justices, to never let Justice Alito eat in peace again. No one in the liberal media raised a question about whether this might incite violence -- after a man attempted to assassinate Justice Brett...

    In the course of a conversation, an acquaintance recently mentioned that the TBS comedy “The Detour” had been renewed for a fourth season. It was odd because I don’t watch the show and also because I’m sure he had no idea I had once written about an episode which (we are told by the website) is “created, written and executive-produced by Jason Jones and Samantha Bee.” Bee, of course, is the hyper pro-abortion, hyper-foul mouthed “comedian” whose hatred for President Trump had plummeted to new depths. I had been directed to “The Road” by a terrific post by Katie Yoder...

    A new report shows Samantha Bee's late night show "Full Frontal" hasn't been able to regain its advertisers after the host attacked Ivanka Trump in May. The liberal comedian came under fire when she used an extreme vulgarity to slam Ivanka Trump in her monologue on May 30 over a photograph the first daughter shared on social media. "You know, Ivanka, that's a beautiful photo of you and your child...But let me just say, one mother to another, do something about your dad's immigration practices, you feckless c---. He listens to you," Bee said. Bee apologized on a June 6...

    Unlike Roseanne Barr, so-called “comedian” Samantha Bee will apparently be allowed to keep her show on the air after making offensive, profane comments about the First Daughter, Ivanka Trump. Bee, who came under a tidal wave of criticism last week when she casually referred to Ivanka as a “feckless c*nt” apologized to viewers on Wednesday night, insisting that she was on a crusade to take the C-word “back” for feminists. She acknowledged, however, that the way she used the word on last week’s program was not a great example of that reclaiming effort.

    Comedienne Samantha Bee has reportedly lost more than two-thirds of her advertisers since she called first daughter Ivanka Trump a “feckless c**t.” Last week, Bee said on her TBS show “Full Frontal” that Ivanka Trump is a “feckless ***t” for not opposing her father’s policies on immigration and migrant children. Bee apologized for the comments on her show Wednesday night but did not offer a direct apology to Ivanka Trump and seemed to blame the media for focusing so much on her “potty-mouth.” (RELATED: Samantha Bee Scapegoats Media In On-Air Apology: ‘Sorry For Breaking America’) According to Newsbusters, there were...

    Samantha Bee, and the geniuses at TBS, had a week to script an astute statement for her—getting the issue of her signature vulgarity off her back—and they blew it. Bee said last night that she has dropped the “c-word” many times before, stating that her goal is to “reclaim” it. Why? Why would she want to normalize a word that if used to describe her own mother she would recoil? Bee admits that a lot of women “don’t want that word reclaimed.” Sadly, she can’t figure out why. What’s the point of reclaiming a word that invites men to think...

It is a word I have used on the show many times, hoping to reclaim it, this time I used it as an insult. I crossed the line. I regret it and I do apologize...

    Samantha Bee on Wednesday opened her show by addressing the controversy surrounding her use of a vulgar term to describe President Trump's daughter and senior adviser, Ivanka, last week. Bee apologized for the remark and for distracting the public "from more important issues." "I hate that this distracted from more important issues. I hate that I did something to contribute to the nightmare of 24-hour news cycles that we’re all white-knuckling through," she said on her TBS show "Full Front with Samantha Bee." "I should have known that a potty-mouth insult would be inherently more interesting to them [news media]...

    TBS is expected to increase network oversight on Samantha Bee’s show after the comedian drew scrutiny last week for making a vulgar comment about Ivanka Trump. A source told The Hollywood Reporter that network management will work with Bee and the crew on her show “Full Frontal” to prevent future incidents that could alienate advertisers or spark backlash. The comedian sparked a firestorm last week when she called Trump a "feckless c---" during a segment on her show about the Trump administration enforcing a policy that separates migrant children from their families. Bee reportedly had full creative license on the...

    Since Samantha Bee's obscene woman-hating comments directed at Ivanka Trump, she and TBS senior staff members have been plotting on what to do next. The answer will come June 6 on Bee’s “Full Frontal” show: she will offer a more detailed account of this issue. They have their work cut out for themselves. If what happened on May 30 was an anomaly, Bee could ride it out, saying she was apologizing for this one-time screw up. But this was not one ugly chapter in an otherwise sterling series of shows. While it was more over the top than any of...

    Full Frontal host Samantha Bee has felt the full force of a conservative backlash after using a vulgar epithet to describe Ivanka Trump, but the comedian still has her defenders and got some welcome support from former boss Jon Stewart, a veteran of Republican animus, at Sunday's Clusterfest comedy festival in San Francisco. According to a report in The Daily Beast, Stewart was asked about the Bee controversy during a Q&A session. The former Daily Show host took exception to White House tactics to get the TBS show canceled arguing that it was all part of a "game" that the...

But other sources with knowledge of the matter said Bee and her producers are working on an in-depth response that will lead Wednesday's episode.TBS and CNN are both owned by Turner, a subsidiary of Time Warner. Bee and the producers started brainstorming about what to say on Thursday, the same day she publicly apologized. Bee had gone after Trump for failing to take action to stop the separation of undocumented families. Bee added that the president...

    Let’s call it progressive peer-group privilege. The older I get, the more firmly I’m convinced of a fundamental psychological fact. We never really leave high school. Of all the forms of pressure that one can apply to a person — political pressure, market pressure, moral pressure — the one that matters most of all is the one that mattered in the lunch room when you were wearing your class ring and letter jacket. It’s peer pressure, the unbreakable bond of the high-school clique. No reasonable person thinks Samantha Bee would still have a job at TBS if she used the...
  • Why Thank You, Samantha Bee: You Just Gave The Trump Campaign A Huge In-Kind Contribution

    I have to say something to Samantha Bee: thank you. Thank you for giving the Trump campaign a rather large in-kind contribution. I would say CNN and other news networks because they gave $2 billion in free media to Trump in 2015-2016, but they probably know better: they helped get the man elected whether they like it or not with their non-stop exposure, confident his antics would usher his defeat. That didn’t happen. Now, we’ve kicked it up a notch with Samantha Bee’s vulgar and disgusting attack on Ivanka Trump, who is more than just a member of the First...

    NBC’S Chuck Todd says President Trump is culpable for the “tone” attached to a recent attack on the first daughter by comedian Samantha Bee. The “Meet the Press” host told colleagues Thursday night that Ivanka Trump can partially thank her father for a personal attack in which she was called a “feckless c—t.” The analysis came during a broadcast of MSNBC’s “Meet the Press Daily” after Ms. Bee of the TBS’ “Full Frontal” apologized for her actions. “There’s no defending Samantha Bee and yet it’s hard to ever empathize with President Trump when they’re asking, you know, for empathy since...

    Hours after the White House pummeled comedienne Samantha Bee for calling Ivanka Trump a 'feckless c***' on national television Wednesday night, the ''Full Frontal' host complained at an awards dinner that she shouldn't have been criticized at all. 'We spent the day wrestling with the repercussions of one bad word,' Bee groused as the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences gave her an award at the NeueHouse Hollywood for 'programming that advanced social change.' Reporters were banned from covering the event in person, but obtained a transcript of her brief remarks. She said that instead of venting their outrage...
