Medical X-ray scans have long been stuck in the black-and-white, silent-movie era. Sure, the contrast helps doctors spot breaks and fractures in bones, but more detail could help pinpoint other problems.

A small team of Israeli scientists think they might have found the first complete cure for cancer.

“We believe we will offer in a year’s time a complete cure for cancer,” said Dan Aridor, of a new treatment being developed by his company, Accelerated Evolution Biotechnologies Ltd. (AEBi), which was founded in 2000 in the ITEK incubator in the Weizmann Science Park. AEBi developed the SoAP platform, which provides functional leads to very difficult targets. read more

Nothing has Changed at the FBI

from The American Thinker:

The gangsters at the FBI

Twenty-nine agents went to arrest 66-year-old Roger Stone, a longtime Trump supporter. The agents went in full battle dress in the early morning hours, as if mounting an attack on an enemy position during a full-blown war.

Stone stands accused of lying to the FBI. He poses no threat of resistance. At his age and given his peaceful, good-citizen background, there was no reason to expect trouble arresting him. Yet 29 agents showed up, armed to the teeth, as if Stone were Carlos Escobar, ready to fight to the death. read more

Sometimes Polls Have Little Relevance

“A Gallup Poll conducted last week [two weeks ago] showed Trump with negative ratings of 58 percent and positive ratings of 40 percent. These figures reflected similar findings in the Economist You Gov poll conducted at the same time, which had Trump down 54-44 percent. In contrast, YouGov had Pelosi down 52-48 percent and Schumer down 49-32 percent. Trump has higher disapproval, but Pelosi and Schumer have lower approval ratings — in part, I think because they are less well-known,” veteran polling analyst Jay O’Callaghan told Newsmax.

But so what? What’s the difference whose poll numbers are higher or lower?

Some might ask, “Doesn’t that equate to popularity which directly equates to reelection chances?”

The short answer is, as of right now, it makes no difference. read more

Studying black holes is a tricky business, but not always because they’re so dim – to the contrary, in some cases it’s hard to see through the bright cloud of hot gas that surrounds them. Now, a team of astronomers has used a global array of telescopes to peer through that fog and capture some of the clearest radio images yet of Sagittarius A*, the supermassive black hole at the center of the Milky Way. And it may indicate that the object just happens to be pointing directly at Earth. read more

Shocker – Transgenderism is a Hoax

from Red Right Videos:

Trigger Warning: Johns Hopkins Psychiatrist Exposes Fraud of Transgenderism

Dr. Paul R. McHugh, the former psychiatrist-in-chief for Johns Hopkins Hospital and its current Distinguished Service Professor of Psychiatry, said that transgenderism is a “mental disorder” that merits treatment, that sex change is “biologically impossible,” and that people who promote sexual reassignment surgery are collaborating with and promoting a mental disorder. read more

Trump Suffers from Bad Advice

from Erick Erickson’s The Resurgent:

President Trump Did, In Fact, Get Betrayed by Congressional Republicans

The reality is that President Trump and the Republicans held the Congress for two years and did jack about a border wall. The reality is also that Republicans in Congress kept telling the President to wait. And on two occasions they got the President to move forward in ways that got him in trouble with his own base. First was the DACA deal in February of last year and second was the end of the year deal.

Congressional Republicans gave the President bad advice and ultimately did nothing to help him in his shutdown fight. They waited and waited and then let him know they were surrendering. It was Bob Dole all over again. read more

WND Exclusive – GOV. CUOMO BEGINS MARCH TOWARD INFANTICIDE

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

One thing we know about progressive ideas is that they must always advance. It’s the very meaning of progress – it must always be moving forward, although the “forward” part is debatable.

And so it is with progressive legislation, or regulation. Progressive legislation passed or regulations mandated never begin as onerous as the author envisions, or first reveals.

The eventuality is always worse than its commencement. This is the progressive modus operandi. American history is replete with examples of this progress, like Social Security, welfare, unemployment insurance, Medicare, Medicaid, etc. read more
