  • Parasite Linked with Alzheimer's And Parkinson's Diseases, Epilepsy, and Cancer

    About a third of the world’s population is chronically infected with the protozoan parasite Toxoplasma gondii. Data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) suggest that about 11% of the U.S. population aged 6 years and over is infected with the parasite, while in other countries the infection rate has been shown to be up to 95%. Researchers from 16 institutions across the U.S., Canada, England, Scotland, and Australia have now analyzed genetic, transcriptomic, and proteomic data from infected individuals, and from studies in cell cultures, to link T. gondii infection with a number of brain disorders,...
  • Scientist who named parasite after Obama meant it as a 'compliment'

    A scientist who named a new species of parasite after President Obama defended his decision, and said that it was meant to honor Obama, not insult him. "Before you accuse me of being some kind of hater, racist or worse — as plenty have — let me be clear: I absolutely intended it as an honor," retired biology professor Thomas Platt wrote in the Washington Post late Thursday. . . Platt named his new species Baracktrema obamai, which is a flatworm that lives in the blood systems of the hosts they inhabit.

    President Obama has more than 130 days left before he leaves office, but already his name adorns a dozen schools, at least eight streets in the United States, one avenue in Tanzania and a mountain in Aruba. If most of those seem tediously conventional, consider that his name is also attached to a parasitic hairworm that afflicts crickets, an Amazonian puffbird and a footlong carnivorous lizard that went extinct roughly 66 million years ago.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — It’s no Nobel Peace Prize, but Barack Obama has a new honor to brag about. Scientists have named a parasite after him – and there’s no worming out of it. Meet Baracktrema obamai, a tiny parasitic flatworm that lives in turtles’ blood. A new study officially names the two-inch-long, hair-thin creature after Obama.

    Donald Trump is a successful businessman who can afford a 757. Obama is a street thug who never earned an honest dime in his whole life, but flies in Air Force One because millions of air-headed youth voted him President. Obama is a parasite who as a community organizer (whatever that is)who did nothing other than burden our system with more government handouts to blacks in Chicago so they didn't have to work. George Soros selected him to help Soros destroy our country as we have loved it for over 250 years.

    Parasite of the day ^ | March 15, 2016 | Tommy Leung
    If you have ever gone for a swim in a lake and later found your arms and legs covered in red itchy welts resembling mosquito bites, it is quite likely that you have encounter parasites related to the one being featured today. Trichobilharzia szidati is an avian blood fluke, and it has relatives living all over the world in both freshwater and marine environments. While they usually infect waterbirds like duck, they are not very good at telling birds apart from humans. To them, any warm-blooded terrestrial vertebrate animal is fair game, which is rather unfortunate for both humans and...

    WASHINGTON - President Obama has suggested that some critics have attacked him because he's the first black president, and he accused Donald Trump of "exploiting" blue-collar fears. Speaking to NPR in an interview released Monday, Obama said he has faced criticism because he's "different." "If you are referring to specific strains in the Republican Party that suggest that somehow I'm different, I'm Muslim, I'm disloyal to the country, et cetera - which, unfortunately, is pretty far out there and gets some traction in certain pockets of the Republican Party, and that have been articulated by some of their elected officials...

    Barack Obama hasn't received many accolades for the job he's doing as president. So he decided to use a year-end press conference to offer a few to himself. Just before he headed off for his Christmas vacation in Hawaii, Obama informed gathered journalists that the U.S. has been doing an outstanding job in international leadership - by which he meant his leadership. The UN climate summit Paris may have been hosted by France, drawn 50,000 participants from 190 nations and reached an accord that binds no one to anything, but it stands as testament to the world's reliance on Washington...

    President Obama met today with his national security team in a highly staged and publicized event at the Virginia-based National Counterterrorism Center. Shortly before that meeting officially commenced, there is said to have been a brief but heated rebuke by Barack Obama against a "top FBI official" assumed to be Director James Comey. That rebuke, described as a "snarl" was apparently initiated by Director Comey's alleged suggestion a "temporary pause" be initiated over immigration from certain regions of the world known to be primary breeding grounds for Islamic-based terror....

    If you've never heard of leishmaniasis, you're lucky — and you probably live in a developed country. It's an illness caused by parasites that are carried by tiny blood-sucking insects called sandflies. The painful, hard-to-treat sores it leaves on skin and internal organs can be disfiguring and even sometimes deadly. And while leishmaniasis mostly occurs in Central and South America, Africa, the Middle East, and Asia for now, it's moving north into the United States, as Maryn McKenna reports in a blog post. In a story for National Geographic News, McKenna describes how about half of the members of an...

    A U.S. judge on Friday approved a deal between conservationists and Montana officials to restrict road-building and logging in roughly 22,000 acres of state forest lands that make up core habitat for federally protected grizzlies. The agreement resolves a lawsuit brought by conservationists after the state had sought to open 37,000 acres , mostly in the Stillwater State Forest, to timber harvesting despite what environmentalists said would be the destruction of prime grizzly bear territory. ...

    President Obama has lamented that special interests dominate the world of politics. My first reaction was to laugh out loud. After all, we are listening to the words of a politician/community activist who has done his very best job handing over the country to the communist bankers that are loosely referred to as the New World Order. This is the same Obama who has supported continued bail-outs of criminal bankers, has overseen and mandated a failing education system (i.e. Common Core), and has mandated a failing health care system that has instituted death panels (e.g. Obamacare age related treatment exclusions)....

    "Obama comes from a community organizer background where it's us against them. But that's not who we are. And that's not the position the leader of our Nation should take." – Dr. Benjamin Carson Obama appears to be a tormented man who is filled with resentment, anger, and disdain for anyone of an opinion or view other than his. He acts in the most hateful, spiteful, malevolent, vindictive ways in order to manipulate and maintain power and control over others. Perhaps because, as a child, he grew up around family members and mentors who instilled him with an abiding bitterness...

In the guise of protecting “negotiations” over Iran’s soon-to-be-fully-functional nuclear program. The Obama administration on Wednesday paid $490 million in cash assets to Iran and will have released a total of $11.9 billion to the Islamic Republic by the time nuclear talks are scheduled to end in June, according to figures provided by the State Department.

Where do they find enough qualified day-care workers? Where do they train them? Everyone gets free education. Wait. Isn’t public education up through high school already free? And the ones who need it most, the blacks and Hispanics, drop out at terrifying rates. Who will make them stay in school and do their homework? Who pays for this? And where do the teachers come...

    With just two years left in the White House, President Obama faces a major challenge — not so much from Republicans as from the public at large. As Democrats look ahead to 2016 and imagine the coming campaign of a yet-to-be-chosen nominee, Obama risks being written off by all parties as irrelevant. Having now lost both houses of Congress, Obama has lost the platform from which he can set the agenda. Soon, his party will choose a new leader to move forward, and he will be a thing of the past. This means Obama must now go to greater lengths...
