  • Smoking cannabis ages the brain by an average of 2.8 YEARS

    Smoking cannabis ages the brain by an average of 2.8 years, new research suggests. This is compared to four years in schizophrenia patients, according to the largest study of its kind. Brain ageing is defined as reduced blood flow through the organ. Excessive alcohol also ages the organ by 0.6 years, the research adds. Lead author Dr Daniel Amen, founder of Amen Clinics, said: 'The cannabis abuse finding was especially important, as our culture is starting to see marijuana as an innocuous substance. This study should give us pause about it.' Reduced brain blood flow has previously been linked to...

    <p>Aretha Franklin, a genius, a legend, the greatest of all time, is dead. This is bad enough. But what’s even worse is that she had to die while Donald f*cking Trump is the president of the United States.</p> <p>Trump offered his warmest best wishes [ed. note: WTF?] and sympathies to the family of Aretha Franklin. He described her as a person he knew well and who worked for him [ed. note: are you f*cking kidding me???]. Trump also said her legacy will thrive and inspire many generations.</p>

    The late Charles Krauthammer was right about the rules of good writing. The use of the first-person pronoun in opinion writing is a cardinal sin. To get a sense of how bad someone's writing is count the number of times he or she deploys the Imperial "I" on the page. Krauthammer considered a single "I" in a piece to be a failure. Use "I" when the passive-form alternative is too clumsy. Or, when the writer herself has earned the right to, because of her relevance to the story. (The story itself, naturally, should have relevance.) The second is my excuse...

    Melania Trump wears jacket with 'I really don't care, do u?' on it to visit border facilities On Thursday, Melania Trump made a surprise visit to the Texas border near Mexico. The first lady, whose stylish outfits tend to draw more attention than her actions, seemingly made a conscious decision to wear a subtle outfit for the trip. For a tour of Upbring New Hope, a housing facility for children aged 12 to 17, as well as other meetings throughout McAllen, she wore white jeans, a khaki shirt, and white Stan Smith sneakers. However, her casual look still managed to...

    Mark Levin calling Trump's trade and economic advisers "idiots" in the first hour. Then he drones on and on about how having a trade deficit is supposed to be good for consumers and belittling other conservative talk radio hosts as "It depends" rather than discussing free markets. Does he not know that this is a negotiation tactic of Trump and the goal here is to make trade policies better for everyone involved? Of course he doesn't, because at heart he's a Never Trumper who is secretly hoping Trump fails so that some massive conservative movement will rise up and elect...

    Bill and Hillary Clinton are not speaking to each other after a blazing argument over her election book, it has been claimed. The former President threw a manuscript in the trash after Hillary ignored his advice not to publish it, according to author Ed Klein. Bill had red-penned the book in an attempt to improve it, a friend allegedly told Klein, but flew into a rage when Hillary refused to read any of his notes.

    CNN anchor Don Lemon stepped out on Saturday night holding hands with his rumored boyfriend. The 51-year-old veteran journalist attended the star-studded Saturday Night Live after party at Tao Restaurant and Night Club in New York City with Tim Malone. It appears as though Lemon has been dating Malone since at least April, according to a number of photos posted to their respective social media accounts. But this is the first time Lemon has been photographed publicly with Malone, who works as a sales executive in his 30s and graduated from Boston College in 2006, according to his LinkedIn profile.

    I'm already not enthused by the coming of this NFL season, but out of habit I went to turn on the game tonight after 8:30. And all I saw was BS ceremonies. Good night NFL, and your sponsors. I'll try again on Sunday afternoon with the guys at my club. If it weren't for them I wouldn't bother watching until the Giants play on Sunday night. (I HATE night games.) ML/NJ

I see it happening but she doesn't have the talent. Her days are numbered at Fox if they're smart. BTW-she's the blonde in between Special Report and Tucker. In case you don't know.

    The standoff between supporters of two Oregon ranchers convicted of setting fires on federal land they leased to graze cattle and government officials amounts to a clash of cultures, according to a legal observer. "Those sipping lattes, they have no clue how the ranching economy, the Western economy works. They believe ranching destroys the environment, that ranching is a vestige of a bygone era," said attorney James S. Burling, the litigation director of the Pacific Legal Foundation. Two years after the standoff at Cliven Bundy's ranch in Nevada, two of Bundy's sons helped initiate the occupation of the headquarters of...

    John Kerry Defends His Diplomatic Efforts: ‘I May Fail – I Don’t Care’ By Ali Weinberg Apr 8, 2014 4:03pm Appearing before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Secretary of State John Kerry defiantly defended his diplomatic efforts, saying that while ambitious, they were better than doing nothing. While the purpose of Tuesday’s hearing was to pick through the State Department’s budget, it was Kerry’s record that came under scrutiny as his old colleagues on the committee accused him of taking on too many responsibilities with too few results. “I think you’re about to hit the trifecta,” Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz.,...

    NEW YORK (AP) -- The dollar plunged to its lowest point ever against the euro Wednesday amid speculation that the Federal Reserve will soon cut interest rates and on a warning from the U.S. treasury secretary that turbulence in financial markets may linger. The 13-nation euro rose as high as $1.3914 in New York trading -- topping its previous record of $1.3852 reached July 24. It later fell back to $1.3908, still up from $1.3832 in New York late Tuesday. The euro surged after Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson, speaking to officials from some of the biggest financial firms in the...

    WASHINGTON, D.C., 5/11/05)- A report released today by a prominent national Islamic civil rights and advocacy group indicates that anti-Muslim hate crimes in the United States increased by more than 50 percent in the past year, from 93 cases in 2003 to 141 in 2004. The Council on American-Islamic Relations' (CAIR) report - the only annual study of its kind - outlines 1522 incidents and experiences of anti-Muslim violence, discrimination and harassment in 2004, the highest number of Muslim civil rights cases ever recorded in the Washington-based group's annual report.
