  • Chemists find a way to unboil eggs

    UC Irvine and Australian chemists have figured out how to unboil egg whites – an innovation that could dramatically reduce costs for cancer treatments, food production and other segments of the $160 billion global biotechnology industry, according to findings published today in the journal ChemBioChem. "Yes, we have invented a way to unboil a hen egg," said Gregory Weiss, UCI professor of chemistry and molecular biology & biochemistry. "In our paper, we describe a device for pulling apart tangled proteins and allowing them to refold. We start with egg whites boiled for 20 minutes at 90 degrees Celsius and return...

    Fighting Self-Hating Jews By Ari Bussel A local activist in Orange County has been fighting a large organization. The organization is Jewish and it supports an initiative to send students, Jewish and others, to Israel. Thus far, the idea is fantastic. For instance, the program “Birthright,” started by philanthropist Bronfman and now an official endeavor of the Israeli government, sends young Jews to Israel to get to know the country. They return after a short stay, an all-expense paid trip, turned into Israel’s best ambassadors. They, who never saw the Jewish state, experience it first hand—from its modern façade to...

    Orange County prosecutors next week are scheduled to argue against a defense motion to keep them from speaking in public about their criminal case against 11 student activists accused of disrupting an Israeli ambassador's speech at UC Irvine last year. The motion, filed in Orange County Superior Court's Central Justice Center in Santa Ana on Tuesday, accuses Deputy Dist. Atty. Dan Wagner, police and representatives from the district attorney's office of tainting the jury pool with public statements against the 11 defendants. Defense attorneys are seeking a court order that would keep prosecutors from talking publicly to the media or...

    Some people wonder why Jews are so often destructive of their own interests; some of the answer to this dilemma may be in the education of their children. No greater laboratory for this study exists than Orange County’s University of California at Irvine. For years a graduate center of European cultural relativist thought — Jacques Derrida taught there — UCI became a natural incubator for extremist ideologies, because, as the relativists decreed, all philosophies and cultures were equal, even those that violently oppressed women and homosexuals and did not, ironically, tolerate free speech. This led inexorably to a boisterous...

    The Orange County district attorney’s office on Friday charged 11 defendants with conspiring to disrupt a meeting and a speech by the Israeli ambassador to the United States at UC Irvine last year. The move comes after about 50 protesters rallied in front of the Orange County district attorney’s office Tuesday. Though some have criticized the students’ method of protest, many said that university punishment was sufficient enough for the “Irvine 11,” as the students came to be known. In a statement, Orange County Dist. Atty.Tony Rackauckas said the case was filed because of an “organized attempted to squelch the...

As readers will see, OC Apostate did not have an easy time disengaging from the MSU. Why did you decide to leave Islam and the Muslim Student Union? Were the two decisions related?

They jumped over and around tables. They rushed the gunman. They screamed and tossed anything within reach; backpacks, books, pens. In less than five seconds, the would-be killer was on the floor, powerless to carry out his planned – and staged – massacre. “How many shots did you get off?” the guest instructor asked after the simulated attack in a University of California, Irvine, classroom. “Two,” the shooter...

Because I believe that the state of Israel, with its racist policies against the Palestinians and illegal occupation of their land, is an apartheid state. Since 1906, when the Zionist congress decided to establish a Jewish homeland in Palestine, Zionist forces, first underground terrorist militias like the Haganah and Igron and then Israel’s Occupational Forces, have attempted to systematically annihilate Palestinians, and drive them out of their land by oppression, torture and humiliation. The Palestinians have...

    But for Dershowitz to try to stop publication of the book is simply unacceptable. The appropriate response to speech that is wrong is not to silence it, but to argue against it — because nobody has a monopoly on the truth. Dershowitz, of course, knows all this. He has said he doesn't want to suppress Finkelstein's freedom of speech, but that he wants to ensure that "maliciously false statements about me … are not published." In fact, he says he supports publication of Finkelstein's book — by some publisher other than UC Press, which, he told me, should not "give...

    Where does free speech end and incitement begin? And what is the responsibility of a college administration for what happens on its campus? At the University of California campus at Irvine (in Orange County), Jewish students pose these two questions. That's because of events sponsored by the Muslim Student Union (MSU) and the Society of Arab Students (SAS) related to their fourth annual “Zionism Awareness Week.” Zionism is the historic return of Jews to their historic homeland. Originally embraced by Theodore Herzl and other Jewish leaders, Zionism has come to be embraced by many Christians, especially American Protestant Christians, as...

The “Institute for Social Ecology” offers this definition: Social Ecology n 1: a coherent radical critique of current social, political, and anti-ecological trends. 2: a reconstructive, ecological, communitarian, and ethical approach to society. The same search will also uncover an essay republished on the “Anarchist Archives” website titled “What is Social Ecology?” The answer according to the essay’s author, Murray Bookchin, seems to be the study of...
