    A House committee on Wednesday advanced a bill that would rename Gravelly Point Park after former first lady Nancy Reagan, roiling local residents who are still upset about the renaming of Washington National Airport for Ronald Reagan 20 years ago. The bill passed the House Natural Resources Committee along party lines over the objections of Rep. Don Beyer (D-Va.), who accused Republicans of forcing the name change despite a complete lack of local support or input. “I have great respect for Nancy Reagan . . . ,” Beyer said. “But this bill is the equivalent of someone coming in and changing the...

    An airplane landing at Reagan National Airport, over Gravelly Point Park which some say should be renamed Nancy Reagan Memorial Park. (ted eylan) In the typical whirlwind of legislation comes H.R. 5457, a nice breeze of a bill was introduced this week by Rep. Jody Hice. The Georgia Republican simply proposes that Gravelly Point Park located on the Potomac River at the foot of the main runway at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport be renamed Nancy Reagan Memorial Park. It is a petite, scenic and unique park. Aircraft thunder directly overhead, families picnic, and the grand...

    In 1998, the Washington National Airport in Arlington, VA was renamed Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport and local Democrats are still bitter about it. The Washington Post recentlyconducted asurvey of Washington, DC area residents, asking themwhat they prefer to call the busy airport. The results showthat while younger people tend tocall it by its current title,Reagan National, older,liberal commuters refuse to utter the name of the conservative president. In total, 72 percent of Republicans surveyed said they refer to it as 'Reagan' or 'Reagan National,'whileonly 35 percent of Democrats acknowledged the airport by that name.Survey participantJason West's eloquent explanation...

  • Are terrorists doing 9/11-style dry runs on U.S. flights?

    Yahoo/The Week ^ | Oct 11, 2013 | Frances Weaver
    "If a dry run is occurring, the attack will shortly follow." That's according to Wolf Koch, a Boeing 767 pilot for Delta Airlines and an official at the Air Line Pilots Association International, who was discussing common terrorist tactics in the run-up to devastating attacks like those on 9/11. That is an extremely worrying thought given a memo leaked this week from the U.S. Airline Pilots Association, which warns of "several cases recentlyof what appear to be probes, or dry runs" of such attacks.

    DCA is an odourless, colourless, inexpensive, relatively non-toxic, small molecule. And researchers at the University of Alberta believe it may soon be used as an effective treatment for many forms of cancer. Dr. Evangelos Michelakis, a professor at the U of A Department of Medicine, has shown that dichloroacetate (DCA) causes regression in several cancers, including lung, breast, and brain tumors. Michelakis and his colleagues, including post-doctoral fellow Dr. Sebastien Bonnet, have published the results of their research in the journal Cancer Cell. ..... Until recently, researchers believed that cancer-affected mitochondria are permanently damaged and that this damage is the...

    'Honor is a hard term to describe. It doesnt have a color or weight or shape. If someone were to ask me what honor looked like, Id probably struggle with what to say. But something happened on May 23, 2012 at 9:31 a.m. at Gate 38 of Reagan National Airport that might change that. A flash mob of sorts broke out. But not like youve seen on YouTube with highly choreographed dance numbers or people singing a song in unison. In fact, virtually all of the participants of this flash mob didnt know they would be participating until moments before...
  • Scientists Cure Cancer, But No One Takes Notice

    Canadian researchers find a simple cure for cancer, but major pharmaceutical companies are not interested. Researchers at the University of Alberta, in Edmonton, Canada have recently cured cancer, yet there is but little ripple in the news or on TV. It is a simple technique using a very basic drug. The method employs dichloroacetate, which is currently used to treat metabolic disorders, so there is no concern of side effects or other long term effects. The drug doesnt require a patent, so anyone can employ it widely and cheaply compared to the costly cancer drugs produced by major pharmaceutical companies....

    Many people have seen - and shared - an article online with the catchy headline, "Scientists cure cancer, but no one takes notice." Surely if a cure for cancer had been discovered, people would notice, right? The link being circulated via Facebook and other social media sites is to a poorly-written HubPages article which states, "Researchers at the University of Alberta, in Edmonton, Canada have cured cancer last week, yet there is a little ripple in the news or in TV. It is a simple technique using very basic drug. The method employs dichloroacetate, which is currently used to treat...

    An inexpensive drug already in use for other diseases might hold the key to a completely new way of treating cancers -- not by killing off cancer cells, but by simply reprogramming them. The finding comes from some exciting Canadian research on patients with brain tumours. The study found that DCA -- or dichloroacetate -- can shrink the tumours by altering a cancer cell's metabolism....
