  • Obamacare Architect: 'Could Be the Beginning of a Death Spiral'

    Weekly Standard ^ | 11/15/13 | DANIEL HALPER
    Harvard professor David Cutler, a so-called architect of Obamacare, says we "could be" witnessing "the beginning of a death spiral" for the unpopular health care bill. Cutler made the comments last night on Fox News: "So when you were on last week I asked you, if they don't get enough people in the exchanges, then what happens?" said host Megyn Kelly. "And you said then the premiums go up very, very high. Now, was that ball put in motion today?" "We don't know yet," said Cutler. "So what the president is trying to do is to say the website is...
  • Scientists Make Mice “Remember” Things That Didn’t Happen

    MIT Technology Review ^ | 25 July 2013 | By Susan Young
    Researchers manipulate mouse neurons to create a false memory; the work could lead to a better understanding of how memories form. Remember this: The red neurons are the brain cells in the hippocampus of a mouse carrying a new memory of a particular place. Scientists have created a false memory in mice by manipulating neurons that bear the memory of a place. The work further demonstrates just how unreliable memory can be. It also lays new ground for understanding the cell behavior and circuitry that controls memory, and could one day help researchers discover new ways to treat mental illnesses...
  • If It has Arnold in It, Don’t Remake It.

    The Freehold ^ | August 29, 2012 | Ed Raby Sr
    Actually, I would appreciate if people didn’t remake anything. Some originality would be nice.  While, I would appreciate no remakes, this goes double for ones with Arnold Schwarzenegger.It as actually quite interesting how many of Arnold’s films were science fiction or fantasy based.  It is also interesting how every remake of one of them is a complete flop.  The latest edition of Total Recall going to the remake scrap-heap is prime example.  Great CGI, No originality and No Arnold equals epic fail.  It seems the original which was recently called ‘cheesy’ by some critic did far better at the box office than the new one which...

    The Orange County Register ^ | August 2, 2012 | Barry Koltnow
    With the opening Friday of "Total Recall," thoughts immediately turn to the subject of movie remakes... Remakes are nothing new in Hollywood, although movie studios prefer to call them "reboots" or "re-imaginations." For some reason, the word "remake" has a negative connotation among moviegoers. Perhaps it's because it seems like a lazy and unimaginative way to make movies...

    UPDATED AT 5:20 P.M. Secretary of State Debra Bowen today certified the fifth recall bid seeking to oust Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger. A group called Taxpayers United to Recall Governor Schwarzenegger -- headed by John D. Fusek of La Habra -- now has until Oct. 22 to obtain 1,041,530 valid voter signatures, or 12 percent of the electorate, to qualify the measure for the ballot. It won't be easy. Gray Davis became the first California governor to be recalled in 2003, but four other recall drives against Schwarzenegger -- one in 2004, two in 2005 and one in 2008 -- have...

    WEDNESDAY, Oct. 22 (HealthDay News) -- It sounds like science fiction, by scientists say it might one day be possible to erase undesirable memories from the brain, selectively and safely. Using a complex genetic approach, U.S. and Chinese researchers believe they have done just that in mice, but the feat is far from being tested on humans. Study co-author Joe Z. Tsien, co-director of the Brain & Behavior Discovery Institute at the Medical College of Georgia, Augusta, says the "work reveals a molecular mechanism of how [memory deletion] can be done quickly and without doing damage to brain cells."

    California: What has changed since Golden State voters ousted Gray Davis and cast their lot with Arnold Schwarzenegger's star power? Not much — except for $41 billion in new spending.What's big, blue and red all over? The great, Democrat-dominated and profligate state government of California. At a point when most state lawmakers and chief executives have put their budgets to bed, neatly balanced, and taken off for some R&R, the Legislature and governor of California are still wrangling over a budget that is roughly $15 billion out of balance. This is nothing new. We've been hearing about these budget gaps,...

    SACRAMENTO -- On July 11 Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger scored his biggest victory of the year, signing a budget in which the Democratic-controlled legislature gave him almost everything he wanted in his effort to cure this debt-plagued state government. But hard on the heels of that triumph, one of Schwarzenegger's aides told me last week, "Ka-chunk, ka-chunk. It was like getting run over by the front and rear wheels of a truck." On July 13 news reports revealed that just before taking office in 2003, the governor had signed a multimillion-dollar contract with the publisher of two muscle magazines that rely...

    Tuesday, March 22, 2005 5:43 p.m. ESTArnold's War Chest Draws Scrutiny Shortly before he was elected governor in 2003, Arnold Schwarzenegger stood in the state's railroad museum, which he called a monument to the special interest that dominated California politics for decades until it was finally curbed in the early 1900s. Californians, Schwarzenegger declared that day, believe their government "is corrupted by dirty money, closed doors and back-room dealing. They see the contributions go in, the favors go out and they're punished with wasteful spending and high taxes." Story Continues Below[AD] Now, as governor, Schwarzenegger is being accused of...

    NOW we will learn if Arnold Schwarzenegger really is a man of steel, because a politician who is tough – if not necessarily stainless – is exactly what California needs. Those who fear the judgment of the people may suggest this is a win for populism over political maturity but Schwarzenegger's sweeping ballot box victory demonstrates the American genius for embracing new ideas and new people. Schwarzenegger is an immigrant who made himself a success in films, business and now politics through his own efforts. By becoming governor of California he has demonstrated the truth of the American Dream for...

    Attention California RECALL voters. In L.A. County only about 1700 polls will be open, compared to the normal 4900 in a regular election. It will be the same thing in other countries. If you go to your polling place and your name is not on the rolls ----- make sure you ask for a PROVISIONAL BALLOT. You will then be able to vote. You will need two forms of I.D. (Or as Handel described it: you will need two forms of I.D. unless you are Hispanic, don't speak English, and arrived at the polls with 14 others in a van.)

    LOS ANGELES -- Films and television shows featuring Arnold Schwarzenegger and other celebrity candidates in California's gubernatorial recall election will likely not be broadcast in the state for the next few months so that stations can avoid having to give rival candidates equal time. The airing of "Total Recall" or another Schwarzenegger film, or a repeat of a "Diff'rent Strokes" episode with Gary Coleman on broadcast television in California would trigger the Federal Communications Commission's equal time provision, allowing other candidates to demand the same amount of time. Cable channels are not covered by the FCC rule, which in the...

    Total California Recall By David Horowitz | August 11, 2003 From the outset the California recall was a bad idea for Republicans. It was a lose, lose, lose situation. Without the recall Republicans would have contended for an open seat in 2006 against a non-incumbent Democrat running on a crippled legacy. The recall introduced three basic possibilities into this mix, all of them bad. The first of these would be a defeat of the recall and hence a win for the Democrats. The second would be a victory for the recall but the election of a Democrat to replace...

    LOS ANGELES - With its cast of characters officially set, the California recall election is now becoming a battle of competing plotlines. The survival of Gov. Gray Davis - and who, if anyone, winds up replacing him - is likely to depend on which campaign is best able to frame the election over the course of the next two months. At issue: Whether voters will focus primarily on personalities or the process. For challenger Arnold Schwarzenegger - the leading contender, according to recent polls - the goal will be to keep the public focused on Governor Davis's shortcomings, as well...

    Many in California are just getting to know the potential candidates for Governor, especially those who were not involved in the 2002 effort to defeat Gray Davis.
