    U R totally correct. In my mind the players needs both feet in the end zone while the ball must be in the air space above the end zone and must be in possession of the ball. All at the same time. Enough of these flyby or fade route touchdowns.

  • A Medical First: Man 'Appeared Cured' of HIV

    07/26/2012 10:13:03 PM PDT · 16 of 22
    Getready to Sir Napsalot

    The cure involves destroying the bone marrow, and replacing
    the marrow with stem cells that have a certain mutation which
    code for white cells with a receptor site that doesn’t
    allow HIV to hook up onto it. Since the HIV can’t hook up
    to the white cells it, is eventually destroyed by the
    now resistant to AIDs immune system. Coupla problems,

    1) Destroying bone marrow by chemo/radiation can itself
    induce cancer

    2) HIVs also hook up into other type of cells

    3) The genome of the virus can integrate itself into
    the genome of the host. Thereby hanging around, though
    not exercising its reproduction, but waiting for the
    correct time to unintegrate.

    4) If the patient has HIV virus present, the patient may
    be able to spread the virus to others who don’t have
    that resistant genetic mutation present, and who can
    develop aids.

    5) If immunosuppressants are needed to protect the
    stem cell graft from rejection that might be a problem
    also.

  • Ex-Pastor Turned American Atheist Director Tells How She Lost Faith

    Getready to SeekAndFind

    I believe there are several points she brings out, but
    I note she does believe in herself.

    The following considerations could be appled in her case.

    1) Her own minds ability to understand everything(see
    quantum theory for the scientists approach to this issue—
    e.g.- how can one thing be in two places at the same time,)
    what happens if she has a stroke and goes blind, does that
    mean nothing exists cuz she can’t see them? (I.e. can your
    mind really understand all that there is? If the God of the
    Bible is bigger than science, does it make sense that one
    could understand Him?

    2) The Bible needs to have scientific credulity. As far
    as I have seen, many of the things I was taught in my science
    classes are now considered false. Sometimes science needs
    to have credulity also(see neutrinos faster than light
    announcement)

    3) Historical credulity of the Bible. Many events, peoples,
    geographies were once considered false, but things have
    been discovered which can verify their existence.
    (example: the existence some of the peoples mentioned in the Bible are
    finally being discovered(e.g. Hittites). Recent discovery of mention of
    David , a King of a small kingdom, in an ancient inscription)
    perhaps the mines of Solomon have been found, etc...

    4) Plain old unbelief. In one of his parables, the Christ
    did say that if people didn’t believe Moses and the Prophets,
    they wouldn’t believe a story, even if the dead came back
    to life and told them that story.

    5) Fear of believing in Christ. This was exhibited even by
    his own close followers(disciples)

    6) The person of Christ. If he is a myth, who constructed
    the myth? But if he did , indeed, rise from the dead, he
    is worth believing(putting ones complete trust) in.

  • Scientists place 500-million-year-old gene in modern organism (Ruh-Roh!)

    Getready to DManA

    Exactly what I was thinking. How did they determine this
    gene was 500 million years old? Cause it was found in
    presently existing bacteria which are SUPPOSEDLY very old?

    Did they find a bacteria with a time clock in it that read
    500 million years, buried under sedimentary rock?
    It also appears that the epigenetic mechanisms involved
    in genome influence change also. So what does that tell
    you about how the gene mutates? Do genes mutate around
    a “successful” sequence? (i.e. anything that goes outside
    that sequence is harmful to the organisms survival). I.e.
    it mutates within a “shere of successful” sequences and not
    outside it.

    anyway, as always, many other questions.

  • Is SETI at risk of downloading a malicious virus from outer space?

    Getready to LibWhacker

    how about this scenario?

    A small group of computer intelligentsia get together, and device
    a set of signals (which are a “ code “ of sorts) that are
    beamed down to known SETI detectors, through a privately
    launched satellite

    These signals are non sensical, non codelike (computerwise) in simple
    analysis, but are some type of code nevertheless.But when all of
    these signals are fed into the SETI computers,
    this non codelike information is built to find other data segments which have
    been beamed down and fed into the SETI computer main
    information bank. The code segments assimilate and
    self assemble into a computer virus of sorts. From the
    SETI banks this information is shared on millions of
    computers, silently siphoning off information, and
    turning the private computers into computer “zombies” which
    send out malicious and information sucking code to other
    connected networks. Pretty soon, you can knock out the whole
    systems. They may even be able to tap into military/government
    data banks....and disable the system when a emergency
    situtation develops....

    Where in the story does it say that the perpetrator confessed
    cuz of Jesus or God? The writer seems to have assumed
    that this is a true confession to God. It is a confession,

    What happens when you change the mass of the earth by adding
    mass from other celestial bodies? Won’t that change the
    gravitational attraction of the earth to the moon, and the
    sun to the earth? Would the moons orbit dip lower? Could it
    crash into earth? Would we move closer to the sun, and burn
    up? Also, reflecting energy to the earth from sources other
    than the sun, might really heat us up, no?

    It’s easier to carefully apply solar energy already hitting us
    and mine minerals carefully down here. We won’t change
    gravitational attraction much. Or some brave souls would
    move out there, and kiss the earth and its’ inhabitants goodbye.

    allow these graduates to not cease physically during their

    dimension, without any undesired interference.

    We affirm that these men/women/mosaic phenotypes carry out
    the desires of our own laws, until those laws are changed
    due to bribes, political considerations, dysfunctional
    psychosocial reason, and lies.

    To that great notion, we offer the highest cogitations of
    our infinite minds (soon to be dust).

    So be it. So be it.
    So beat it, beat it, beat it.*

    There is something very goofy about the report as posted.

    First, they say the desert spans 600 miles...how wide is it?
    Is it one inch wide. What is the square mileage?

    Two, the temp varies from 45 to 79 degrees Fahrenheit? In
    the winter? Wow, certainly inhospitable, just like
    Mars (sarcasm mode)

    Three, they say it utilizes energy in ways not seen in
    other oganisms, and that these are very different organisms.
    Then they say they have to culture the orgs. and test
    them..How did you find out they were so different if they
    haven’t carried out the tests and/or cultured them ALREADY?

    Fourth: The organism are so much less complex with a 5% difference
    in DNA...If they were only 10% the SAME, then I might go along
    with it.....

    Fifth: The Mars connection is based on what Mars conditions
    were a long time ago...I don’t think we would know what
    those conditions are, only speculation is possible.

    The descriptions are too incomplete to really understand

    Lots of bipolar symptomology there guys. Over the top, grandiose
    statements, a bit of hypersexuality, right age...Would not
    be surprised if that was the case. Approach with caution.

    I wonder why the drug didn’t work on 100 percent of all
    the tumors? I wonder if the side effects will be the
    limiting factor in the treatment? Time will tell.

    whats to prevent any retailer from offering free refills on
    the 16 oz. size? Or f’instance paying 1 buck for a 16oz.
    drink, and your next drink is 1 cent?
    The whole thing is so unenforceable and stupid I cannot
    even believe it....
    Maybe if the mayor would stop paying the health care costs
    for diabetes and cardiac disease people might start “paying”
    attention to their diets instead of “paying” inept
    gov’mint workers to watch out for them. Win on gov’mint
    interference, win on state/city budgets, win on bloated
    government workforce, win on health...And you would have
    more money to spend on gooooood foooood..How’s that
    New Yorkers?

  • MSNBC host Hayes apologizes for saying he is 'uncomfortable' calling fallen soldiers heroes

    I think these pundits think they can analyze political
    movements/wars/social changes as if there is no emotional
    or personal toll going on. So to them, calling someone a
    “hero” is somehow justifying the action the person was
    involved in.
    Hayes sounds like a “smart” guy who has absolutely no life experience
    at all. He just repeats those analytical platitudes he read
    in his “studies”...
    Inexperienced , pedantic, hopefully unemployed soon.

    Some obscure ones...but pretty good. Has “time” in the title.

    1) Time...Pozo Seco Singers
    2) Twine Time...Alvin Cash and the REGISTERS...(HOOO-HOOO)
    3 Who knows where the time goes? (written by Jacque Brel?
    sung I suppose by many, but I love Judy Collins version
    4) The first time...made famous by Roberta Flack, written
    by Ewan McColl...also sung by Gordon Lightfoot.
    5) Prime Time...Allan Parsons (on ammonia avenue album)

    There are tons of songs with time in the lyrics, or which
    have a real time in the title (like 3am in the morning...
    Simon and Garfunkel)....

    The whole article (like almost anything on Yahoo) is just
    a pathetic advertisement for the reader to “read more” on
    a different link which explains the top 10 this or that
    gadget,so other probably paying companies can tout their
    wares. What a pile of crap writing.

    He didn’t mention that folks are doing research on using
    the electron spin states on electrons as carrying information.
    it would be (I believe) base 16 instead of base 2(binary..
    on/off model)...much faster.

    He forgot to mention brain implants or sensors on the
    head which could be controlled by thoughts and made
    to control computers, or devices, or cars, etc...

    He didn’t mention cloaking devices, hypersonic planes,
    genetic therapy, etc....he didn’t even mention pico-
    projectors which will probably get rid of TV sets, or
    glasses with monitors built in, or even 3-D projection
    devices that aim the image onto your retina...

    Clearly a crappy commercial feeder article...so typical of
    Yahoo with it’s pathetic Top Ten Cities to find jobs
    in, or Top ten diets, or Top Ten things not to say
    at your job interview...etc., ad nauseum

    Sharing DNA in bacteria is not the same as reproduction in humans.
    The bacterial injected DNA may merge with the whole genome
    of the recipient. With humans, I’m sure you know,
    the genome of male and female contribute 1/2 of the total
    genome of the offspring. What is usually sent to other bacteria
    are small amounts of DNA, not whole or even half genomes...
    it’s just called “sex” cause it is somewhat reminiscent
    of what goes on with mammals, and also cuz evolution is
    “true” therefore it must be a precursor to mammalian sex...

    You mentioned that when certain proteins are “made”
    in vitro they self assemble...why did you use the term “made”
    Aren’t you admitting that the proteins had to be made? Or
    could the experiment be done by dumping in random amounts of
    chemicals in a solution, and then leaving them alone(no heat,
    energy, catalysts, structural organization) , then
    looking for self assembly of a structure? Why do you think
    that is never done by researchers?

    Also the term irreducibly complex means that any active
    biological structure can only contribute to an organisms
    life cycle in its complete working form. It
    does not mean a system cannot be broken down to it’s component
    parts.
    If any part is missing(like a structural protein, or an enzyme, fer
    instance) the biological structure cannot work. Therefore
    the system had to be completely competent at the beginning.
    A nonworking precursor structure waiting for the right component
    to evolve may not find itself in the new
    generations genome( see genetic entropy)

    Don’t forget the genes/and control mechanisms(epigenetic
    domain) and its’ products transport has to evolve also.
    Plus there has to be selective pressure. If the organism
    successfully survived before the “evolution” of the new structure why
    would it need the new structure in the first place? Chemicals
    don’t work with a telelogical goal..they got no brains to
    see the future...(neither to we for that matter)

    You are absolutely correct. As soon as the government started
    handing out our money these colleges expanded in scope and
    size and number..

    It’s the students own fault. And the lying administrators
    who just want the students money,and vote for candidates
    who will make laws taking our money and giving it to the
    colleges....total racket.
    We’re gonna get away from the entitlement society when we
    go broke..
