    Epilepsia ^ | 6 March 2006 (10 Years Ago) | Dr. G. Capovilla
    Abstract Summary: Purpose: Photosensitivity can represent a serious problem in epilepsy patients, also because pharmacologic treatment is often ineffective. Nonpharmacologic treatment using blue sunglasses is effective and safe in controlling photosensitivity, but large series of patients have never been studied. Methods: This multicenter study was conducted in 12 epilepsy centers in northern, central, southern, and insular Italy. A commercially available lens, named Z1, obtained in a previous trial, was used to test consecutively enrolled pediatric and adult epilepsy patients with photosensitivity. Only type 4 photosensitivity (photoparoxysmal response, PPR) was considered in the study. A standardized method was used for photostimulation. Results:...

    In Secondhand Time, Alexievich chronicles the demise of communism. Everyday Russian citizens recount the past thirty years, showing us what life was like during the fall of the Soviet Union and what its like to live in the new Russia left in its wake. Through interviews spanning 1991 to 2012, Alexievich takes us behind the propaganda and contrived media accounts, giving us a panoramic portrait of contemporary Russia and Russians who still carry memories of oppression, terror, famine, massacresbut also of pride in their country, hope for the future, and a belief that everyone was working and fighting together to...

    Fargo Forum ^ | Jun 14, 2016 | Mike Nowatzki and Patrick Springer
    BISMARCK Fargo entrepreneur Doug Burgum stunned the GOP establishment Tuesday with a convincing win over the partys endorsed candidate, Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem, an improbable victory after trailing by nearly 50 points in a poll less than four months ago. With 389 of 432 precincts reporting, the millionaire former Microsoft executive held a 60 percent to 38 percent lead over Stenehjem, with Bismarck oilfield consultant Paul Sorum a distant third at less than 2 percent. Complete results were not available at press time. Burgum now emerges as the favorite in November in a state where Republicans hold every statewide...

    CBS DC ^ | August 21, 2014 (About 2 YEARS Ago!)
    The former deputy director of the CIA fears that the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria could carry out attacks in the United States. CBS News national security analyst Mike Morell told CBS This Morning Thursday that this terror group poses both short- and long-term threats to the U.S. The short-term concern is the Americans that have gone to fight with ISIS and the west Europeans that have gone to fight with ISIS could be trained and directed by ISIS to come to the United States to conduct small-scale attacks, Morell stated. If an ISIS member showed up at a...

    This is a FReeper Field Report on the Pierce County WA GOP Caucus, which yielded a very interesting result. In Washington State, National Delegates to the Republican Convention are determined by the open Primary. We may see a lot of Trump support, and Democrats who cross over for Trump. Cruz may or may not poll well here. However, at our county caucus, the Cruz people totally dominated the Trump people. In our Legislative District, it was 25+ Cruz folks to no more than 6 Trump folks. Cruz people voted the Cruz slate for delegates to the State convention, locking up...

    Economy In Crisis ^ | 03-30-2016 | Economy in Crisis Website
    The rapid deterioration of our economy is attributable to the wholesale liquidation of our best companies to foreign interests. The U.S. has sold more than 16,000 of our best companies in the last 30 years to these foreign interests. This trend erodes our ability to generate earnings, and tax revenues to sustain our current standard of living resulting in our reliance on imports thus creating uncontrolled and escalating foreign debt. Holding our debt our jobs and the production of our goods, foreign countries have ultimate leverage over our policies and our future. If we allow this to continue, it...

    "If you think health care is expensive now, wait until you see what it costs when it's free." "You can't get rid of poverty by giving people money." "It is a popular delusion that the government wastes vast amounts of money through inefficiency and sloth. Enormous effort and elaborate planning are required to waste this much money." "There is no virtue in compulsory government charity, and there is no virtue in advocating it.

    The man's own pen ^ | Various | Friederich Hayek
    The curious task of economics is to demonstrate to men how little they really know about what they imagine the can design. The argument for liberty is not an argument against organization, which is one of the most powerful tools human reason can employ, but an argument against all exclusive, privileged, monopolistic organization, against the use of coercion to prevent others from doing better. The more the state "plans" the more difficult planning becomes for the individual. While an equality of rights under a limited government is possible and an essential condition of individual freedom, a claim for equality of...

We may say, in fact, that it is one of the most ambitious creations of the human spirit, . . . so magnificent, so daring, that it has rightly aroused the greatest admiration. If we wish to save the world from barbarism we have to refute Socialism, but we cannot thrust it carelessly aside. - Ludwig von Mises This book argues that our civilisation depends, not only for its origin but also for its preservation, on what can be precisely described only as the extended order...

    Capitalism and Freedom (the book) ^ | 1961 | Milton Friedman
    How the free market protects Historically, political freedom has followed the emergence of free markets and capitalist institutions. This is because, Friedman notes, a healthy private economy naturally provides a check on the power of the state. For instance, even though they were officially persecuted, in medieval times Jews still thrived because they could operate as merchants. The Puritans and Quakers were only able to relocate to America because they had built up funds in the comparatively free markets of Britain, despite being lumbered with other restrictions. Where monopolies and trading restrictions are rife, so is special treatment of one...

    Politico ^ | 03/02/2016 | Shane Goldmacher
    Sen. Ted Cruz raised nearly $12 million in February by far his biggest monthly haul of the campaign padding what was already the largest war chest in the Republican field. Cruz campaign manager Jeff Roe tweeted the fundraising details on Wednesday, announcing the that the campaign had received 225,000 donations with an average of $52 per contribution in the month. Cruz began February with $13.6 million in the bank roughly $8.5 million more than Marco Rubio had. Rubios team has indicated that his fundraising has ticked up following Jeb Bushs withdrawal from the race after South Carolina,...
  • Republicans Are Campaigning to Lose

    02/18/2016 6:55:42 AM PST · by Uncle Miltie · 39 replies
    The CNN exit poll for the New Hampshire primary asked Republican voters if they "feel betrayed by Republican politicians?" Forty-seven percent said yes. And that was the view of grass-roots Republicans in a state where moderates usually rule. Imagine what the percentage of Republicans who feel betrayed might be in more conservative states. We'll find out Saturday in South Carolina. The split between an aggrieved GOP base - the betrayed - and the party's leaders dominates the Republican presidential race. It has turned televised debates into brawls. And it threatens to prevent Republicans from winning the presidency that otherwise might...

    A Ted Cruz-aligned super-PAC is out with new ads deepening Cruz's White House feud with Donald Trump by playing back the real estate magnate's previous praise of Cruz and questioning Trump's conservative chops. The ads are part of a $2.5 million buy already announced by Keep the Promise I, which will run in Iowa and South Carolina this week, just before the Iowa caucuses. The first ad plays audio from Trump's introduction of Cruz at the Lincoln Day Fundraising Dinner in Palm Beach, Fla., where the real estate mogul lauded the Texas senator as a "very popular and important future...

    The Washington (Com)Post ^ | 1/13/2015 | Katie Zezima
    After months of responding to Donald Trump's attacks by deflecting them, joking about them or just plain ignoring them, Ted Cruz struck back late Tuesday with a stream of pointed criticism directed at the GOP front-runner. At events in New Hampshire and in radio interviews, Cruz took direct aim at Trump on several fronts: tying the billionaire to Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, questioning his ability to win a general election, casting doubt on his ability to serve as commander in chief and disputing his "New York values." The swiftness and ferocity of the attacks is striking for Cruz, who...

    Among the hard lessons of our wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, surely one of them is that it’s foolish to expect that backward and often barbaric societies can be transformed into functioning liberal democracies. So why do liberals seem so surprised that so many people from these societies behave in barbaric ways after they’ve shoved their way into the West? As I write, 516 criminal complaints have been filed in Germany against men of mainly North African or Arab origin who went on a New Year’s Eve sexual-assault rampage in the city of Cologne. ...

    Faced with a sea of raised hands, Democrat Hillary Clinton often struggles out loud trying to decide who to call on. At a town hall meeting on Tuesday in Sioux City, Iowa, she knew right away. "I gotta call on you," she told a young man near the front. Turning to the audience, she said, "He has a T-shirt that says, 'Bill Clinton for First Lady.'" "You know," the former first lady said, "I'm sort of more partial to First Mate or First Dude." The voter went on to ask a question about the criminal justice system It wasn’t the...

    DEFEND AMERICA AGAINST ISLAMISM Radical Islamist Terrorism has declared War against America. Many Muslims in America want to overthrow the Constitution and replace it with Sharia Law, and declare their willingness to kill you to make it happen. To ensure the continued survival of the U.S. Constitution, we must at least close the borders, declare war, prosecute Sedition, and attack radical Islam with RICO statutes. SHARIA SUPERIOR TO THE CONSTITUTION Sharia law presumes superiority to Constitutional Law (1, 2). A majority (51%) of American Muslims want Sharia here (4). A huge minority (33%) want Sharia to replace the Constitution (3)....

Quran 9:73 Have you heard that Islam is a peaceful religion because most Muslims live peacefully and only a "tiny minority of extremists" practice violence? That's like saying that White supremacy must be perfectly fine since only a tiny minority of racists hurt anyone. Neither does it explain why religious violence is largely endemic to Islam, despite the tremendous persecution of religious minorities in Muslim countries. In truth, even a tiny minority of "1%" of Muslims worldwide...

    Paul Ryan on Thursday takes the gavel as Speaker of the House, promising a fresh start for the fractious GOP Congress. We know the Wisconsinite has the principles and skills to succeed, but his speakership will be as much a test of the conservative movement as it is of Mr. Ryan. The question is whether conservatives can muster the unity and wit to revive Congress as a governing body. Mr. Ryan is promising to communicate better with the likes of the Freedom Caucus, to cut fewer backroom deals, and to advance an agenda that offers a clearer sense of conservative...

In all, he backs at least $18 trillion in new spending over a decade, according to a tally by The Wall Street Journal, a sum that alarms conservatives and gives even many Democrats pause. Sanders sees the money as going to essential government services at a time of increasing strain on the middle class. His agenda includes an estimated $15 trillion for a government-run health-care...

    A White House spokesman said American efforts in Yemen are a "template that has succeeded," even as President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi was forced to flee the country by boat. White House press secretary Josh Earnest on Wednesday said that the U.S. still had Yemeni extremists in its crosshairs. According to media reports, Hadi fled the presidential palace in Yemen as rebels attempted an armed takeover of the city of Aden. Earnest told reporters that U.S. officials were not aware of Hadi's destination but insisted that American officials still had a level of control over the chaotic situation. "We have...

    Tuesdays electoral victory of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu may serve to further exacerbate tensions among American Jews, according to a prominent Jewish sociologist specializing in the Diasporas largest community. Over the last few years American Jewry has been increasingly dividing over matters relating to Israel, explained Hebrew Union Colleges Dr. Steven M. Cohen, who flew in to Israel from New York earlier this week in order to cast his ballot. We have Israel advocates, we have pro-Israel critics, and we have BDS advocates, he explained. In the pro-Israel camp, both [sides] accuse the other of being unfaithful to Jewish values...

    ANTWERP, Belgium If the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant preaches the truth, why do most Muslims oppose it? Because most Muslims go to hell, answered the young man wearing a black hoodie adorned with a Kalashnikov and ISILs logo. The hadith are clear. For every 1,000 [Muslims], 999 will enter hellfire. Michael Younes Delefortrie, 26, a former Catholic altar boy from a diverse Antwerp suburb, was convicted last month of belonging to a terrorist organization in a trial of 46 members of Sharia4Belgium, a group accused of recruiting young Belgians to fight in Syria. Sentenced to three...

    Some cultures in the US have been allowed to remain distinct, so why the double standard? European no-go zones that non-Muslims may not enter have made headlines recently, despite the inconvenient fact that they dont exist. Because of an overwhelming and unexpected reaction from France and England in particular, Fox News issued an apology for letting anchors and guests repeatedly discuss such zones. Yet there are those who refuse to back down. Case in point: Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, a potential Republican presidential candidate. In an interview with CNN, he reiterated a point that others on the right have recently...

    President Obama announced plans to normalize diplomatic relations with North Korea and ISIS today, including opening an embassy in both North Korea and the ISIS Caliphate.

    Sympathy for the self-proclaimed Islamic State group is fuelled by Muslim distrust of the Western media's narrative. For most people in the UK and elsewhere, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) is nothing short of pure evil - severing heads and stealing women - a menace to the world that must be eliminated. But for others, untangling the complex web in Syria and Iraq and separating fact from fiction is an increasingly difficult but important task. They argue that various factors - including the myriad of warring factions in the region, government involvement, interest groups, and less-than-objective...
