    In a bold stand for life, Pope Francis called physicians to refrain from performing abortions and euthanasia, even if their jobs call for it. In what many are seeing as the latest example of progressive media’s gross censorship, NBC and CBS cut short the pope’s message... Pope Francis made his take on the sanctity of human life loud and clear during his address last weekend to Catholic doctors in Italy, asserting that doctors must make the “brave choice” to never administer an abortion or euthanasia — even if doing so is considered an act of civil disobedience. “To play with...

    Hot on the heels of the Lewis and Curry paper, we have this new paper, which looks to be well researched, empirically based, and a potential blockbuster for dimming the alarmism that has been so prevalent over climate sensitivity. With a climate sensitivity of just 0.43°C, it takes the air out of the alarmism balloon. The Hockey Schtick writes: A new paper published in the Open Journal of Atmospheric and Climate Change by renowned professor of physics and expert on spectroscopy Dr. Hermann Harde finds that climate sensitivity to a doubling of CO2 levels is only about [0.6C], about 7...

    Sheila Weller’s forthcoming tell-all ‘The News Sorority’ claims to offer up details on the scandalous and sometimes catty escapades of noteworthy newswomen, including how some apparently hold strong disdain for each other. Katie Couric cultivated an “American Girl identity” but she was also a bully with a “chip on her shoulder.” Diane Sawyer strived to be “America’s Aunt” but she rode her staff hard and used “staged humility” to disarm critics. Christiane Amanpour was fearless in the field and would remind her bosses, “Do you know that I’m the world’s best-known foreign correspondent?” And, when feeling threatened, these pioneering, primetime...

    If you don't eat chili peppers or hot curry much you may want to reassess that given new research that claims the peppers and curry can play a role in reducing the risk of colorectal and bowel tumors, as well as extend a person's lifespan by 30 percent.

Working with Steven Weber, an archeologist and associate professor at Washington State University Vancouver, Kashyap was able to track down some of the plants’ ancient lineage and...

My only formal exposure was a course in freshman logic nearly 40 years ago…I can understand most Bayesian arguments that I’ve encountered, although I’ve never attempted to make one on my own…My point is that I think there are some glaring logical errors in the IPCC’s detection and attribution argument, that it doesn’t...

    Curry may counter cognitive decline Ben Harder A chemical found in turmeric, an ingredient in curry, may prevent cognitive impairment, a study of Singaporeans suggests. The chemical, called curcumin, has anti-inflammatory and anticancer properties, past research in animals had suggested (SN: 12/8/01, p. 362: Available to subscribers at http://www.sciencenews.org/articles/20011208/note12.asp). To explore its potential effects in people, medical researchers in Singapore analyzed a database of some 1,000 elderly, mentally sound adults living in that ethnically diverse city-state in Southeast Asia. The database, originally collected for diet and health studies, provided a measure of cognitive function for each volunteer and information on,...

    Humanity may split into two sub-species in 100,000 years' time as predicted by HG Wells, an expert has said. Evolutionary theorist Oliver Curry of the London School of Economics expects a genetic upper class and a dim-witted underclass to emerge. The human race would peak in the year 3000, he said - before a decline due to dependence on technology. People would become choosier about their sexual partners, causing humanity to divide into sub-species, he added. The descendants of the genetic upper class would be tall, slim, healthy, attractive, intelligent, and creative and a far cry from the "underclass" humans...

    Former Clinton political hitman James Carville, who recently touted New York Sen. Hillary Clinton for a 2008 presidential run, is reportedly behind an advertising campaign attacking President Bush for his 1990 sale of Harken Energy stock as well as his ties to the oil industry in general. American Family Voices, a group described by the New York Times as "secretive," has paid to run a 30-second commercial on cable news programs in Washington, D.C., and in New York through Thursday. The ad blasts President Bush as "sly like a fox" for talking down his dealings with Harken Energy, which Democrats...

    UCLA/VA Study Finds Chemical Found in Curry May Help Immune System Clear Amyloid Plaques Found in Alzheimer’s Disease UCLA/VA researchers found that curcumin — a chemical found in curry and turmeric — may help the immune system clear the brain of amyloid beta, which form the plaques found in Alzheimer's disease. Published in the Oct. 9 issue of the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease, the early laboratory findings may lead to a new approach in treating Alzheimer's disease by enhancing the natural function of the immune system using curcumin, known for its anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties. Using blood samples from six...

    by Mark Finkelstein September 29, 2006 - 08:11 The big political news of the day at the 'Today' show was the Bob Woodward book, State of Denial. Turf battles and rivalries in a White House - who would have thought it? Dems are presumably clinging to it as the Last Best Hope for Liberal-kind. But in terms of revealing the liberal MSM mindset, I found much more interesting a few off-the-cuff comments made by members of the Today cast. At the end of the first half hour, the entire gang was gathered on the studio couch, and talk turned to...

    British manufacturers of spicy Indian delicacies have discovered a new market for chicken tikka masala (CTM) -- India. Widely considered Britain's national dish, the curry is now being exported in bulk to consumers in Mumbai and Delhi. Lancashire-based Indian food major Pataks has been shipping vast quantities of the dish that was first exported to India to cater to British tourists there who are more familiar with the dish back home. But now reports say that Indians who love to experiment with a wide variety of global cuisine have taken to the dish with a Brit twist in a big...

    by Mark Finkelstein April 3, 2006 Perhaps I was reading into things in light of the rampant speculation about Katie Couric's possibly imminent departure for the CBS Evening News anchor spot. But this veteran Today watcher sensed a distinct mood of nostalgia on the set this morning. Katie Couric was back after a couple weeks vacation, and all the crew members went out of their way to remark on the reunion of the regular cast. Lauer: "Haven't seen you for a couple of weeks. Good to have you back." The pair jokingly shook hands as if they were meeting for...

    Ladies, if you love your man, give him cauliflower curry with a side of kale for dinner. It may stave off prostate cancer, according to research released yesterday by Rutgers University. Though they don't often make the favorite menus of most men, cauliflower and kale -- along with cabbage, broccoli, brussels sprouts, kohlrabi, watercress and turnips -- contain a chemical that is a significant cancer-preventive.

    KUALA LUMPUR: Spicy and mouth-watering, it has sparked off a curry war in the Klang Valley. An appetising Chettinad meal served on a banana leaf at an authentic South Indian restaurant will have a lingering massala aroma that is bound to make a customer return for more. Recently, the number of such restaurants has multiplied here and in Petaling Jaya, resulting in intense competition. Many carry the Sri Paandi banner. The battle to attract Chettinad-curry lovers is said to be so severe that it has resulted in some operators breaking family ties or ending up with soured relationships with fellow...

    FRIDAY, June 10 (HealthDay News) -- Cancer researchers have been given a million-dollar grant to investigate the therapeutic value of the folk medicine propolis and the food spice turmeric. The U.S. National Cancer Institute grant is earmarked for the study of the two alternative remedies, each of which has shown promise in reducing risks for breast, prostate and colorectal malignancies, and in enhancing cancer treatment. Propolis and turmeric are rich in plant polyphenolic compounds that exhibit potent antitumor activities, the researchers said. "A very interesting property of these compounds is that they have been shown to cause cell death in...

    Curry Ingredient, curcumin, may help  Treat Alzheimer's   Alzheimer's disease is an irreversible, progressive brain disorder that occurs gradually over time and results in memory loss, unusual behavior, personality changes and a decline in thinking abilities. It affects more than 4 million Americans and many millions across the globe. However, the prevalence of Alzheimer's disease among adults ages 70 to 79 in India is more than four times less than the rate in the United States. Why such a significant difference? Some researchers believe the answer for this drastic disparity in Alzheimer's patients found in India is a direct...
