  • 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 recently…of 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 doesn’t have a color or weight or shape. If someone were to ask me what honor looked like, I’d 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 you’ve 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” didn’t know they would be participating until moments before...

    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 doesn’t require a patent, so anyone can employ it widely and cheaply compared to the costly cancer drugs produced by major pharmaceutical companies....

    As political alliances go, the four-year marriage between Gov. Bill Richardson and the Democratic Governors Association was golden. Richardson got prestige, coast-to-coast travel and national exposure that would help fuel his presidential bid, while the DGA basked in his growing notoriety and fundraising prowess. "It's been very beneficial," Richardson acknowledged in late 2006, when his stint with the political group — as federal liaison, vice-chair and unprecedented two years as chairman — wrapped up a month before he launched his unsuccessful quest for the White House. Now, that political shine could be tarnishing. Recent news reports say authorities have asked...

    It sounds almost too good to be true: a cheap and simple drug that kills almost all cancers by switching off their “immortality”. The drug, dichloroacetate (DCA), has already been used for years to treat rare metabolic disorders and so is known to be relatively safe. It also has no patent, meaning it could be manufactured for a fraction of the cost of newly developed drugs. Evangelos Michelakis of the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Canada, and his colleagues tested DCA on human cells cultured outside the body and found that it killed lung, breast and brain cancer cells, but...

    A small, non-toxic molecule may soon be available as an inexpensive treatment for many forms of cancer, including lung, breast and brain tumours, say University of Alberta researchers. But there's a catch: the drug isn't patented, and pharmaceutical companies may not be interested in funding further research if the treatment won't make them a profit. In findings that "astounded" the researchers, the molecule known as DCA was shown to shrink lung, breast and brain tumours in both animal and human tissue experiments. "You typically get this eureka type of feeling. It's the most exciting thing a scientist can get," Dr....

    One of the great myths perpetrated by liberals is that even though they may have disagreed with Ronald Reagan, they still respect him. HOGWASH!!! Back when Reagan was President in the 80's, the liberals hated him and they STILL DO as you can see in this DUmmie THREAD titled, "DC People: How annoying is the phrase 'Reagan Airport?'"

So the next time you make the flight to D.C., if you see some red-faced idiot screeching like a maniac, you can...

    Speaking to reporters at a U.S. Chamber of Commerce aviation conference, Mr. Kelleher also said he would be amenable to an incremental phaseout of the Love Field limits. Although he didn't have a specific timetable, Mr. Kelleher said the federal law could be eased over time by gradually allowing routes between Love Field and additional cities. "We are totally open to how you approach it," Mr. Kelleher said. The 1979 Wright law was written to protect Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport by limiting standard commercial jets flying to and from Love Field to Texas' adjoining states. The law was later amended...

The passenger was found, but couldn't be questioned immediately because he didn't speak English, Von Walter said. He was turned over to the FBI, who questioned and...

    Radio report said officals have isolated and are combing a Phoenix to Reagan Nat'l flight on the ground at Sky Harbor. Apparently, someone found (I'm not kidding) a soda can with a wire sticking out of it.
