    Researchers have built the first functional anal sphincters in the laboratory, suggesting a potential future treatment for both fecal and urinary incontinence. Made from muscle and nerve cells, the sphincters developed a blood supply and maintained function when implanted in mice. The results are reported in the medical journal Gastroenterology. "In essence, we have built a replacement sphincter that we hope can one day benefit human patients. This is the first bioengineered sphincter made with both muscle and nerve cells, making it 'pre-wired' for placement in the body," said senior author Khalil N. Bitar, Ph.D., a professor of regenerative medicine...

    IBD Editorials ^ | January 6, 2011 | Staff
    Leadership: Waking up to a thinner majority, the Senate majority leader suddenly finds the filibuster a threat to democracy. So he decides that the first legislative day will be the day the Senate stood still. Only in the Bible and Harry Reid's Senate can a day last more than 24 hours. As we predicted a week ago, the slightly less powerful majority leader, on the first legislative day in the 112th Congress, executed plans to make that "day" last until Jan. 25 so he can stage a legislative coup and neuter the filibuster rule that protects the right of the...

    There are consequences when we forgive the depraved. America has duly performed its solemn rituals to mark the passing of Ted Kennedy -- the pompous displays, the airy speeches, the pseudo-dignified deference to the dead. What we ought to reflect upon, with equal solemnity, is what America's legitimization and ultimate acceptance of such a man portends for ourselves. The tale of Chappaquiddick has, of course, been told and retold. But what Ted Kennedy did to Mary Jo Kopechne that summer night in 1969 is so depraved that the story bears repetition. Put aside the debauchery of the party Kennedy attended...

    As Senate Democrats proclaimed the 60 votes needed to pass health-care reform, Kennedy biographer Adam Clymer says the late senator would have backed this bill. Ted Kennedy thought this moment would come, though by this spring he did not expect to see it. In May, he wrote to President Obama that he was “confident… that while I will not be there when it happens, you will be the president who at long last signs into law the health-care reform that is the great unfinished business of our society. For me, this cause stretched across decades; it has been disappointed, but...

    The exposure of ClimateGate and the impending failure of the Copenhagen climate summit have the global warming community on the ropes. And to add insult to their injury, Sen. James Inhofe, R-Okla., has taken his one-man truth squad to Copenhagen, to continue to underscore just how absurd the idea of anthropogenic global warming is. That has drawn the ire of the left, which knows it's losing momentum here and abroad as the Copenhagen summit is nearing the end.

Jones made the off-the-cuff remark in February, during his lecture at a Berkeley Energy and Resources Collaborative (BERC) event on the green economy. At the time, the Obama administration had not yet tapped Jones to serve as a special adviser on the White House's Council on Environmental Quality. The slip happened in response to a question about the Democratic Party's...

    Vice President Cheney may go down in history as one of the worst, if not the worst, ever to hold the job in the nation's proud history. President Bush should reflect on his decision to pick Cheney as a running mate as a dreadful move when he sits down to write his memoirs. In many respects, Cheney is running a rogue government with or without Bush's approval. Evidence is clear now that while Cheney refused to divulge the names of visitors to his residence, he wanted to wiretap private citizens in the name of national security. Even worse, he shut...

    WASHINGTON — Nobody expects to get a letter from a member of Congress that ends with an expletive. But that’s what happened when Rep.

The letter ended with a profane, seven-letter insult beginning with the letter “a”: “I think you’re an ...” Emerson said she can’t explain how the offensive language made it into the last line of the letter, which otherwise reads like a typical response to a citizen’s question about last year’s testimony of oil executives before the Senate Commerce Committee. “There...

"My son, give attention to my wisdom, incline your ear to my understanding .... For the lips of an adulteress drip honey and smoother than oil is her speech" (Proverbs 5:1-3).Those two sentences perfectly describe both the power of sexual temptation and its antidote. The wise king understood that, if a young man is to successfully withstand the charms of the temptress, he must be prepared ahead of time. Time...

    The Boston Globe ^ | September 14, 2005 | Mohammad-Mahmoud Ould Mohamedou
    AS THE WAR between the United States and Al Qaeda enters its fifth year, the nature of the armed, transnational Islamist group's campaign remains misunderstood. With the conflict viewed largely as an open-and-shut matter of good versus evil, nonmilitary engagement with Al Qaeda is depicted as improper and unnecessary. Yet developing a strategy for the next phase of the global response to Al Qaeda requires understanding the enemy -- something Western analysts have systematically failed to do. Sept. 11 was not an unprovoked, gratuitous act. It was a military operation researched and planned since at least 1996 and conducted by...

Barrios, who chairs the Joint Committee on Public Safety, said the .50 caliber rifle - a weapon capable of firing a five and a half inch round into a target outside the George Sherman Union from Danielsen Hall - opens the door to potential terrorist attacks on "easy targets" around Massachusetts, such as Logan International Airport and the Liquid Natural Gas Tankers in the Mystic River.

    LANCASTER COUNTY, PA - When Jim Clymer announced on Monday that he was going to be on the ballot for U.S. Senate this Nov. 2, a lot of Republicans groaned. They worry that Clymer, who ran a strong but unsuccessful campaign for Lancaster County commissioner in 2003, will doom Republican Sen. Arlen Specter’s chance to win re-election. A conservative, third-party candidate such as Clymer, of the Constitution Party, will siphon votes from Specter and benefit Democrat Joe Hoeffel, they believe. And a Hoeffel victory could tip the Senate’s balance of power in favor of the Democrats. The Democrats think so...

Some students picked Tom Brokaw to be the Commencement Speaker at the overall graduation ceremony this morning for a speaking fee of $75,000. The students and parents did not get their monies worth unless you can count being irritated. Last year CIA Director Tenet spoke to the graduates and it was all about how they can make America and the world a better place and never give up on your dreams. He is...

    WASHINGTON Presumably unaware of the presence of a live microphone, Senator John Kerry, campaigning last week in Chicago, let loose with his opinion of Republicans opposing him as "the most crooked, you know, lying group I've ever seen."My first reaction — like that of millions of parents and schoolteachers around the country — was to wince at a prominent politician's use of "you know," a halting interjection that has been cluttering the speech of teenagers for years.Only later, as the rest of the Kerry condemnation sunk in, did I wonder: Was it wise for a candidate for president to characterize...

    There are few things as revealing as public figures being caught in moments when they do not know they are being overheard. Four years ago at a campaign event, when George W. Bush was caught calling a New York Times reporter a "major-league a--hole," it made every major network newscast that night. That's fine. Unguarded, unscripted moments are so rare on the campaign trail that episodes like that attract understandable attention, especially if they're a little salty. So, four years later, where were the lead stories the day that candidate John Kerry blasted his opposition as "the most crooked, lying...

    On September 4, 2000, George W. Bush, unaware that a microphone was catching his comments, confided his opinion of New York Times reporter Adam Clymer to Dick Cheney. The vulgarity Bush employed was picked up by the microphones, and was instantly a front page story in the campaign. The Boston Globe, for example, ran a page one story the next day by Anne E. Kornblut and Glenn Johnson that began: "George W. Bush yesterday urged voters to put 'plain-spoken Americans' in the White House, intending to contrast himself with Vice President Al Gore. Instead, his frankness created an embarrassment, after...

    When microphones in 2000 picked up Republican candidate George W. Bush telling running mate Dick Cheney that he thought New York Times reporter Adam Clymer was “a major league asshole,” the personal remark led that night’s newscasts on ABC, CBS and NBC with all three condemning Bush’s tone. Dan Rather blasted Bush for his “meanness and nastiness.” But on Wednesday night of this week, after Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry was caught charging that, of those in the Bush administration, “these guys are the most crooked, you know, lying group that I’ve ever seen,” a very serious and personal allegation,...

    As of this morning's Today Show, the world is now officially upside down. In the wake of John Kerry's impromptu slur captured on tape accusing the Bush administration of being "the most crooked, lying group I've ever seen" guess who should be on the defensive? Why the Republicans, of course. Just ask Katie Couric. "The Affable Eva Braun of Morning TV" (copyright 2002 Ann Coulter) just completed an interview with NBC political heavyweight Tim Russert. After playing the tape of Kerry's comments, the obvious question would have been along the lines: "how much does this hurt Kerry?" But no, this...

    (Please note that paragraph 7 contains language that may be offensive to some readers) Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez warned the U.S. government Sunday that if it tried to invade Venezuela or impose a trade blockade against his country, he would shut off Venezuelan oil supplies to the United States. Although the context Chavez gave was hypothetical, it was the first time the outspoken Venezuelan leader had publicly mentioned the possibility of cutting off oil supplies to the United States. Venezuela is among the four top suppliers of crude and oil products to the U.S. market. The left-wing Venezuelan leader made...

    Is this really the best time to provoke G.W.? By Patrick Markey CARACAS, Venezuela (Reuters) - Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez called President Bush (news - web sites) an "---hole" on Sunday for meddling, and vowed never to quit office like his Haitian counterpart as troops battled with opposition protesters demanding a recall referendum against him. Reuters Photo Chavez, who often says the U.S. is backing opposition efforts to topple his leftist government, accused Bush of heeding advice from "imperialist" aides to support a brief 2002 coup against him. "He was an ---hole to believe them," Chavez roared at a huge...

    Like every other institution, the Washington and political press corps operate with a good number of biases and predilections. They include, but are not limited to, a near-universal shared sense that liberal political positions on social issues like gun control, homosexuality, abortion, and religion are the default, while more conservative positions are "conservative positions." They include a belief that government is a mechanism to solve the nation's problems; that more taxes on corporations and the wealthy are good ways to cut the deficit and raise money for social spending and don't have a negative affect on economic growth; and that...
