    Something old, something new, something borrowed, something filled with the coagulating blood of oneís enemies. The Trump household apparently wasnít content turning the White House into a dark alternate dimension where all hope dies for just one yearóthis house of horrors has now become an annual holiday tradition. The White House has shared an official look at First Lady Melania Trumpís latest holiday decor at the White House. Last year, Mrs. ďBe BestĒ turned the hallways of the presidential residence into a living nightmare straight out of Get Out or Voldemortís bathroom. Shadowy branches crept over the walls, reaching forth...

    Before he was honored at the 4th annual Carney Awards Sunday evening, Actor James Cromwell warned that the United States will experience another a ďrevolutionĒ with ďblood in the streetsĒ unless President Donald Trumpís agenda is thwarted. ďThis is nascent fascism. We always had a turnkey, totalitarian state ó all we needed was an excuse, and all the institutions were in place to turn this into pure fascism,Ē James Cromwell said in an interview with Variety. ďIf we donít stop [President Trump] now, then we will have a revolution for real.

    **SNIP** Warren spoke out about the threat, asked if she was concerned about being a possible target. ďLook, Iím worried for all of us," Warren said. "Iím worried because it means there is a person or persons out there who really want to shut down the democratic process.Ē The F.B.I. is treating the case as an act of domestic terrorism, as the nationwide hunt for a suspect intensifies. Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz was one of the targets of the twisted plot, and spoke out for the first time after the incident. "My brave staffers and I saw those weapons of...

    Boston, Mass. Ė The rate of infectious disease (ID) markers, such as those for HIV and hepatitis B and C viruses (HBV and HCV), in donated blood is higher for men who have sex with men (MSM) relative to blood donors overall, according to an analysis of data from more than 8.4 million blood donations collected from January 2017 through September 2018 by the American Red Cross. However, the ID marker rates for reinstated (1.44%) and newly eligible (2.0%) MSM donors were similar to those of first-time male donors (1.52%). The findings were presented at the 2018 AABB Annual Meeting,...
  • Biomedical bleeding affects horseshoe crab behavior

    10/24/2018 1:53:58 AM PDT · by piasa · 11 replies
    New research from Plymouth State University and the University of New Hampshire indicates that collecting and bleeding horseshoe crabs for biomedical purposes causes short-term changes in their behavior and physiology that could exacerbate the crabs' population decline in parts of the east coast. Each year, the U.S. biomedical industry harvests the blue blood from almost half a million living horseshoe crabs for use in pharmaceuticalsómost notably, a product called Limulus amebocyte lysate (LAL), used to ensure vaccines and medical equipment are free of bacterial contamination. This lifesaving product can only be made from horseshoe crab blood, says researcher Win Watson,...

    Another woman accuses Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct. A third says she was at multiple parties in the Eighties where women, including herself, were drugged and gang raped by the Supreme Court nominee and his friends. But she kept going back. And never complained until two days before an important Senate vote. And, coincidentally, Christine Blasey Fordís attorney was her attorney in a sexual harassment suit 10 years ago. And weíre supposed to believe all this. Only the media Ė ever credulous when it comes to stories about Republican bad behaviour Ė and hardcore #Resistance types buy it. Unfortunately, even Fox...

    Vampires, it seems, have gone mainstream. According to The New York Post, ďdrinking young peopleís blood could help you live longer and prevent age-related diseases.Ē (It could also cause you to develop sensitivity to light, sleep in some unusual places, and morph into a small flying rodent, but beggars canít be choosers.) Actually, though, the Postís claim is somewhat misleading. Patients donít really have to drink the blood, they can receive it via transfusion. Technology has advanced, it seems, even for vampires. Jesse Karamazin, the California "doctor" behind this anti-aging regimen, doesnít actually have a license to practice medicine, but...

A second later, it sunk in Ė after a long day on her feet, Wazir, a pregnant 27-year-old refugee from Afghanistan, defeated lifelong Heights resident and four-term District 17 state incumbent Rep. Dick Patten, overcoming an opponent who said her lack of experience and status as a refugee would hurt her campaign. Instead, Wazir said those very things Ė as well as her drive to connect with voters through doorknocking, thank-you notes and election reminders Ė buoyed her campaign. ďThey were very excited there was someone new running for the...

    Red Double of the First Class JOHN THE BAPTIST has pointed out the Lamb, Peter has firmly fixed His throne, Paul has prepared the Bride; this their joint work, admirable in its unity, at once suggests the reason for their feasts occurring almost simultaneously on the cycle. The alliance being now secured, all three fall into shade; while the Bride herself, raised up by them to such lofty heights, appears alone before us, holding in her hands the sacred cup of the nuptial-feast. This gives the key of today’s solemnity; revealing how its illumining the heavens of the holy...

    Crissy Brownstein Naticchia told The Mighty that her husband of 23 years was diagnosed with Babesia, a tick-born illness that quickly attacks the red blood cells. His diagnosis came after the 50-year-old had come down with an intense fever that eventually landed him in the Intensive Care Unit. However, because it took six days for her husband to get the correct diagnosis, he never recovered. Naticchia's husband unexpectedly passed away the day after his diagnosis. According to Fox 2, scientists have recently discovered an exotic tick species in the United States, specifically in Hunterdon County, New Jersey. It is not...

    Few scandals have so gripped both the health-care and technology industries as the seismic rise and fall of blood-testing company Theranos. In Bad Blood, acclaimed investigative journalist John Carreyrou, who broke the story in 2015, presents comprehensive evidence of the fraud perpetrated by Theranos chief executive Elizabeth Holmes. Specifically, Holmes and the companyís former president Ramesh ĎSunnyí Balwani raised more than US$700 million through ďelaborate, years-long fraud in which they exaggerated or made false statements about the companyís technology, business, and financial performanceĒ, as the US Securities and Exchange Commission put it in March this year.

    Gov. Jerry Brown signed a bill Friday that lowers from a felony to a misdemeanor the crime of knowingly exposing a sexual partner to HIV without disclosing the infection. The measure also applies to those who give blood without telling the blood bank that they are HIV-positive.... Supporters of the bill said women engaging in prostitution are disproportionately targeted with criminal charges, even in cases where the infection is not transmitted. Republican lawmakers including Sen. Joel Anderson of Alpine voted against the bill, arguing it puts the public at risk. ďIím of the mind that if you purposefully inflict another...

    The new test utilizes microRNA (miRNA), a substance that is secreted from cells into the blood and regulates the movements of genes. Types of miRNA differ between cancer cells and normal cells, and they do not decompose for a certain period of time. The team is composed of researchers from the center, Toray Industries Inc. ó which has the testing technology ó and other institutions. They succeeded in identifying miRNA specific to 13 kinds of cancers, such as breast, lung, stomach, colorectal, esophagus, liver and pancreatic cancers, from the preserved blood of about 40,000 patients, most of whom were cancer...

Similarly, the liturgical cycle follows a pattern based on this economy that was planned and predicted by God. Ten days after the celebration of the Ascension, the Church celebrates her birth in the flames and wind of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost. And then comes Trinity Sunday....

    I heard Rush Limbaugh say things are looking good regarding Republicans passing health care reform. Paraphrasing, Rush says that if that happens, leftistsí bad behavior will sink to new levels. When the GOP passes health care legislation, fake news media will gleefully incite leftists to new levels of violence. Fake news media created the anti-Trump crazies for the distinct purpose of inflicting punishment on Trump supporters. They hope chaos in our streets will ultimately lead to removing Trump from office. In worship and furtherance of their leftist agenda, fake news media gladly throw American lives on the altar to be...
