    A new study from the American Journal of Political Science indicates that different political affiliations may actually correspond with different body odors. The researchers, led by Brown University political scientist Rose McDermott, found that conservatives and liberals smell dissimilar. While the difference is small, it is apparently significant enough that we subconsciously prefer the scent of those who vote like we do. "It appears nature stacks the deck to make politically similar partners more attractive to each other in unconscious ways," the researchers wrote.Previous research has found a number of other political view correlations with unknown degrees of biological and...
  • My No-Soap, No-Shampoo, Bacteria-Rich Hygiene Experiment

    For most of my life, if I’ve thought at all about the bacteria living on my skin, it has been while trying to scrub them away. But recently I spent four weeks rubbing them in. I was Subject 26 in testing a living bacterial skin tonic, developed by AOBiome, a biotech start-up in Cambridge, Mass. The tonic looks, feels and tastes like water, but each spray bottle of AO+ Refreshing Cosmetic Mist contains billions of cultivated Nitrosomonas eutropha, an ammonia-oxidizing bacteria (AOB) that is most commonly found in dirt and untreated water. AOBiome scientists hypothesize that it once lived happily...

    New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu on Friday afternoon said Occupy NOLA protestors who have camped out in Duncan Plaza across from City Hall for the last two months must immediately begin to clear the park. "I am asking them to leave right now," Landrieu said. "Any time after this may see enforcement."While acknowledging the protestors' rights to freedom of speech, Landrieu said it is against the law to be in the park between 10:30 p.m. and 6 a.m. and to have tents, kitchen equipment and electrical utilities in the park. "I am giving notice on behalf of the city of...

    SYDNEY (AFP) – Militant environmentalists harassing Japan's whaling fleet in the Antarctic will be allowed to refuel their ship in Australia despite a plea from Tokyo, according to the government. Japan has asked Australia and other countries to ban the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society vessel the Steve Irwin from docking, accusing the activists of "sabotage". Acting Prime Minister Julia Gillard said that while no request to dock had yet been received from the Steve Irwin, which is on its way to the southern Australian city of Hobart, there was no reason to keep the ship out. "Should such a request...
  • Soldiers Who Have Taken a Life More Likely to Defend Iraq War

    How do soldiers come to terms with having taken a life in combat? Research has suggested that when people consider themselves to be “good” but are forced to do something “bad” to others, they adopt negative opinions about their victims to rationalize their actions. But according to a new study, this tendency may not apply to soldiers or at least not to those who have served in the Iraq War. American soldiers who have killed in Iraq do not think more poorly of Iraqis than Iraq War soldiers who have not killed—they do, however, think worse of Americans who speak...

    Bargaining With the Open Space Devil Makes Us All Greenies Now by Wayne Lusvardi 9/12/07 American newspaper journalist H. L. Mencken once wrote: "The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary." This is no more exemplified than with what is conventionally called "open space preservation" in California. In a German legend, a character named Faust (German for "fist" or Latin for "lucky") traded his soul to the devil in exchange for knowledge or power....

    Berkeley Planet ^ | Oct. 18, 2005 | RICHARD BRENNEMAN
    One of the country’s most famous anti-war activists is now one of Berkeley’s newest residents. Cindy Sheehan, who gained the world’s attention with her protest outside President George W. Bush’s ranch in Crawford, Texas, has moved into a Berkeley apartment following her separation from her husband. “I needed a place to stay, and some friends got me an apartment,” she said. Not that Berkeley will see much of the mother who lost her son Casey in the Iraq war in April 2004. “I spend most of my time traveling, and I’m home maybe seven to 10 days a month,” she...
  • Communism and human nature (Bolshie Mod sez, Arise ye kittens of the earth!)

    Many argue that communism will never be possible because of "human nature". The essence of this false argument is the belief that a communist society would consist of an all-powerful central government that would tell everybody what to do--and would therefore undermine the creative initiative of individuals and the search for happiness. • This argument is based on two false assumptions: (1) It assumes that a communist society will look like the former Soviet Union, or the current China, North Korea, etc (ie: corrupt police states with a feudal-style ruling class) (2) It assumes that people will only work in...

    FREDERICTON - Rifle shots were fired into the air Friday during a confrontation between sealers and protesters in the Gulf of St. Lawrence off the north coast of Prince Edward Island. The shots were fired by someone aboard the vessel after abuse shouted by about a half-dozen sealers escalated into a shoving match with protesters. The activists then retreated to their helicopters.

        March 19, 2003, 9:20 a.m. Casualties of Enlightenment Peace (of mind) at any price. By Adam G. Mersereau he more we hear from the antiwar movement, the more evident it becomes that the antiwar movement is not entirely antiwar. War and the brutal killing of innocent people per se do not seem to offend many of the opponents of the pending military action in Iraq. After all, it is Saddam Hussein who is courting war by his defiance of U.N. resolutions and the peace accord that ended the first Gulf War; it is Saddam Hussein who harbors terrorists...
