An Xmas Assortment

David Davis:

The truth is we are now being asked to give up control of our own future to exercise an influence we no longer have in the interest of an institution that may be beyond reform. As a former Europe Minister, it pains me to say that I have reached a tipping point and concluded that it is in both our best interests and the EU’s best interests that we seek our future in the wider world.

    What I’ve always said they use false fear to drive their bogus agendas on every front.

    Feynman has been dead for many years. The situation which he described in that quote has long been made worse and worse.
    How has it come about that we in the UK have a ‘Ministry of Environment, Climate Change and Energy” – or some such. I mean, why was that Ministry simply called ‘The Energy’ Ministry? Environments and Climate Change might come into the equations, if in fact such things matter. The important thing is that evidence of harm must be real, and not a computer modelling of some affect in the future.
    I find it incredible that Ministers have been such suckers for the last several decades. Does the Secretary of State for Health stand on a lonely peak without support and subject to the directions of ASH ET AL? By the ‘ET AL’, I mean all the false organisations, invented by academics to suggest wide support. I suspect that it is so.

      Junican – the names governments give departments hide a multitude of sins. They get changed periodically. Currently, we have the Dept for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) and, separately, the Dept of Energy and Climate Change. The latter one is interesting because 2/3 of its budget every year goes on nuclear waste – decommissioning old power stations and experimental reactors and managing military and civilian waste streams. It really should be called the Dept of Nuclear Waste, Energy and Climate Change but it doesn’t suit any government’s agenda to remind taxpayers we have all this radioactive waste and will be paying through the nose on it for generations.

    I’m inclined to think that Ron Paul nails Trump in that video. Just hope that his son Rand resurges in the polls or that Ted Cruz comes through. I suspect either would be an improvement on the Donald and most certainly on Clinton.

    That Feynman video sums up so clearly the problems we face with the healthist and environmentalist fraud. There shouldn’t be any need to add more. Trouble is, it still persists.

    @junican, I think it was Prof John Brignell who quipped (in the form of a mathematical joke) that “the Ministry of Energy and Climate change is tasked with complex issues, which is why it has both a real and an imaginary part”.

    • Frank Davis says:

      It was certainly an interesting take on Trump. Ron Paul’s main point was that Trump wasn’t offering freedom, but authoritarian control, and as such was as much part of the political class as anyone else, even if they all disown him.

  4. Harleyrider1978 says:

    Trumps running a 39 point lead over everyone in nationwide polling. He has now gone on the attack on the Clinton’s. Which means he and most of those seeing the lite in the GOP have already accepted he is the candidate. This means its time to get behind him and unite now early on and defeat the democrats. Of course I’d love to see Cruz or Rand as Vps.

    Abstract
    Historically, tobacco use was primarily recreational and has been smoked in cigarettes, cigars and pipes, as well as smokeless forms of consumption, all of which are associated with adverse health effects. However, recent scientific investigations indicate that tobacco also contains several diverse secondary metabolites that may provide potential health benefits in the treatment of cancer and neurodegenerative diseases. Specifically, the leaf and flower of Nicotiana tabacum contain high amounts of the key flavor ingredient, cembranoids. Tobacco alpha- and beta-2,7,11-cembratriene-4,6-diols display potent anticancer activity. These compounds have also been found to inhibit phorbol ester-stimulated (32)P(i) incorporation into phospholipids, induction of Epstein-Barr virus early antigen and protein phosphorylation. This review focuses on the biocatalytic and semisynthetic studies of tobacco cembanoids and their anticancer activity.

      A molecule found in the tobacco plant could be useful in killing cancerous cells in humans, Australian research has found.

      The molecule, found in the pink and white flowers of the ornamental tobacco plant Nicotiana alata, is a key part of the plant’s natural defence mechanism, allowing it to fight off fungal and bacterial infections.

      After isolating the molecule, known as NaD1, La Trobe University biologists found that it also had the ability to identify and destroy cancer cells while leaving healthy cells unscathed.

      “This is the holy grail – to develop specific agents which will only target cancer and not the normal healthy cells,” cancer biologist Mark Hulett said.

      Advertisement

      Using the Australian Synchrotron in Clayton to see the molecule’s structure in atomic detail the researchers, including structural biologist Marc Kvansakul, were also able to establish how the molecule tackled infection.

      They found that the molecule used a complex mechanism, which first formed a pincer-like structure that gripped onto lipids in the outer layer of invasive cells. It then ripped them apart, making the cell explode and killing it.

      “The mechanism is totally novel for any molecule,” Dr Hulett said of the findings, which are outlined in the journal eLife published on Wednesday.

      The ornamental tobacco plant is different to the tobacco plant grown for commercial use, although the two hail from the same genus.

      The NaD1 molecule is found not only in the tobacco plant but in other living organisms including other plants and humans. Dr Hulett said it has never been clear how it worked or that it had the potential to treat cancer.

      The research group will carry out pre-clinical trials to investigate whether the mechanism can be applied to treating cancer in humans. This could involve designing drugs to mimic the actions of the molecule or somehow prompting the naturally occurring molecule to target cancerous cells. However, Dr Hulett said the latter would likely prove more complex and there was the risk of interfering with the normal function of the molecule in the body.

      Dr Hulett said it would be up to 10 years before a treatment could reach the market. The research was financed in part by the Melbourne biotech company Hexima and the Australian Research Council.

        Medicine: Doctors at Work
        Friday, Apr. 21, 1961

        “Dr. Ernest L. Wynder of Manhattan’s Sloan-Kettering Institute has discovered that a nonflammable part of a waxlike chemical in tobacco smoke acts to inhibit substances that can cause cancer.

        The anticancer agent (Wynder once thought that the entire substance caused cancer) is also present in auto fumes, where it seems to block cancer-causing substances more effectively—despite the fact that auto exhausts contain 60 times more of the cancer-causing agents.

        Wynder warned that the presence of the waxlike chemical in tobacco tar does not prevent lung cancer, hopes that eventually enough of the chemical can be added to cigarettes to eliminate the need for filters.”

    Here’s another goody:
    http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2010/10/101027124734.htm
    Tobacco, used on a small scale as a natural organic pesticide for hundreds of years, is getting new scientific attention as a potential mass-produced alternative to traditional commercial pesticides.

    Get this go in this morning at 8am for an echo and blood work. Ok that was fine with me to have done. Thing was I thought it was to echo the stents and when the girl did only my left side and heart I asked her arent you doing the stents thats what Im here for.

    She says the orders for a heart and left side only! I went Ive had 6 of those done in the last 6 months and everything was fine,even Centennial heart hospital did 4 in 2 days from my knees to my head and own my arms and everywhere and came in and said everything looks good. Then sent me home. She says well did the doc have the centennial paperwork I said I dont know but now Im going to get billed for this echo as VA wont pay but for one a year in follow up care!

    Thats gonna be a nice 12-1800 bucks for sure and all done on something even is own office had done back in august. But thta was under a diferent doc who couldnt find anything wrong either…….

    Now Im starting to think Dr Lee ordered it up just to keep the echo rooms patient load up to keep them in business.

    Anyway Ive been up since 3am and Im heading back to bed. Boy talk about REDUNDANT BULLSHIT. Wasted money and tests just to keep them in business. No wonder health care costs go thru the roof every year.

    • harleyrider1978 says:

      When your stable and had all the nuclear testing plus regular echos and already been gone into inside and the best docs at Nashville walk in and say the Biaxin caused this you have no signs of heart disease at all,wtf……………Im so damn disgusted knowing 7-8 echos in 6 months done here and there all showing the same thing all fine and yet here comes another one. I could see it in 12 month cycles not just beause they wanna keep a case load of work going for a tiny backwoods hospital in macon county………its a waste of tax dollars and insurance dollars.

      Ebola Drug Made From Tobacco Plant Saves U.S. Aid Workers

      A tiny San Diego-based company provided an experimental Ebola treatment for two Americans infected with the deadly virus in Liberia. The biotechnology drug, produced with tobacco plants, appears to be working.

      In an unusual twist of expedited drug access, Mapp Biopharmaceutical Inc., which has nine employees, released its experimental ZMapp drug, until now only tested on infected animals, for the two health workers. Kentucky BioProcessing LLC, a subsidiary of tobacco giant Reynolds American Inc. (RAI), manufactures the treatment for Mapp from tobacco plants.

      The first patient, Kent Brantly, a doctor, was flown from Liberia to Atlanta on Aug. 2, and is receiving treatment at Emory University Hospital. Nancy Writebol, an aid worker, is scheduled to arrive in Atlanta today and will be treated at the same hospital, according to the charity group she works with. Both are improving, according to relatives and supporters.

      Each patient received at least one dose of ZMapp in Liberia before coming to the U.S., according to Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.

    Perhaps Trump’s appeal is that he seems ‘cool’.
    If you don’t think he is ‘cool’, just ask him, he will tell you just how ‘cool’ he is.
    (That is not ‘cool’.)
    Hillary, Paul, and Sanders are trying hard to appear cool.
    (That is not ‘cool’.)
    Rubio and Bush have folks telling us that they are ‘cool’.
    (That is not ‘cool’.)

    Cruz and Dr.Carson are not trying to impress anyone with their ‘coolness’; but, they(especially Dr.Carson) actually are ‘cool’.

    Obama is thought to be ‘cool'(just ask him); but, that sort of ‘coolness’ is not what you want to be in charge of your country.

    See ‘Egomaniac’.

    That sort of ‘cool’,I am better than most others, is what you see in the faces of the anti-smokers like Dreadful Deb.

    • Harleyrider1978 says:

      Trump has charismatic appeal. That’s what makes him have cool factor. But then after Obama even a yellow dog had appeal. Trumps on the way to the WH maybe just one term but enuf to rid this country of progressive bigotted controllers while clearing out this countries enemies from within. Could be that’s why he is so high in the polls. He dares. To destroy multi culturalism

      • garyk30 says:

        Well, he does make a lot of promises;but, campaign promises are not worth crap.

        Charisma does not mean honesty or results.

        Nor do I trust Polls as an accurate forecast of future actions.

        I am getting less forgiving in my old age, as far as politicians are concerned.
        I do tend to ignore most of my wife’s forgotten promises.

        • harleyrider1978 says:

          Gary thing is the GOP alumni of RINOs now in charge of it are finally admitting they may have to get behind Trump. If they don’t and he wins he automatically becomes the LEADER of the Party and he will appoint who he wants as chairman on down the chain of command…………that’s why they are shaking in their communist boots at the GOP committee.

  10. Joe L. says:

    I just saw a new commercial for Chantix (well, it was new to me because I rarely watch television, but it may not be “new” per se) which was infused with a not-so-subliminal message crafted to degrade and denormalize smokers.

    This (6-minute long!) ad was apparently directed at a southern U.S. demographic. “Billy,” the case study actor in the commercial who claims that he quit smoking by taking Chantix is labeled as being from Anderson, South Carolina and has a southern accent. Near the end of the commercial, now free from his “addiction,” “Billy” and his wife go out for dinner together at a BBQ restaurant. Which BBQ restaurant was chosen for the commercial? “The Smoking Pig.” which I discovered is a real BBQ restaurant in South Carolina, near Clemson University. The agency which created this ad could have chosen from thousands of southern towns with BBQ joints with which to set this commercial, but they strategically chose “The Smoking Pig.” It’s obvious Pfizer requested that a subliminal message be worked into the commercial. Clearly, their intent here is to subconsciously associate smokers with what is considered to be a filthy animal.

    Here’s a link to a video of the commercial. “The Smoking Pig” is displayed clearly for seven consecutive seconds, from 4:32-4:39.

    Pfuck Pfizer!!!

        OMG then what do you do about this;

        I have just run across some information that has totally changed my mind. It has been verified through several sources. I’m sure it will change yours too after you read it.

        “* Contributes to health problems from inhaling particulate matter or ingesting harmful chemicals.
        * Spews hazardous chemicals ….Acetone, Benzene, Trichlorofluoromethane, Carbon Disulfide, 2-Butanone, Trichloroethane, Trichloroethene, Carbon Tetrachloride, Tetrachloroethene, Toluene, Chlorobenzene, Ethylbenzene, Styrene, Xylene, Phenol, Cresol, Cyclopentene and Lead.

        there are at least 4 cancer-causing chemicals associated with ….. The EPA lists these chemicals on their website:
        1) Benzene (EPA classification as Group A, known human carcinogen).
        2) Carbon Tetrachloride (EPA classification as Group B2 probable human carcinogen).

        4) Toluene (EPA classification as Group B2 probable human carcinogen).”

        That scares the heck out of me! I will never again visit a place that allows this out of fear for my health!

        Smoking is dangerous…. Oops! Sorry.. My bad…

        That article is all about burning paraffin based candles, not smoking!

      The average American pharma commercial is officially 3 mimutes long for each one,some even run upwards of 4-5 minutes alone. Pharma spends 18 times as much on commercials as it does its over 800 lobbiests in D.C. You see pharma adviocates 2 lobiests per legislator in D.C. We yet don’t know how much brown bag cash is hauled in YET!
