Reactor Holds 180 Million degrees for 20 Seconds

KSTAR, the so-called "Korean artificial sun," has set a record for maintaining plasma at temperatures over 100 million °C
KSTAR, the so-called “Korean artificial sun,” has set a record for maintaining plasma at temperatures over 100 million °C

While harnessing the power of the Sun has progressed in leaps and bounds in recent years, harnessing the process that powers the Sun is proving a tough nut to crack. However, progress continues to be made on the various approaches to practical nuclear fusion being pursued, of which tokamak reactors remain a frontrunner. In another promising development for the technology, the Korea Superconducting Tokamak Advanced Research (KSTAR) fusion device has set a world record by maintaining plasma at over 100 million °C (180 million °F) for 20 seconds.

Republican Anti-Gun Ohio Governors – First Kasich, Now DeWine

from Daniel Horowitz at the Blaze:

Gov. DeWine threatens to veto self-defense law as crime skyrockets in Ohio

Without the right to self-defense, there are no rights to life, liberty, or propertyStand Your Ground” Laws in Florida: What You Need to Know -

As violent crime reaches record levels in Ohio’s major cities, Gov. Mike DeWine (R) appears to be more concerned with using law enforcement against peaceful citizens and business owners. Now, he doesn’t want you to defend yourself when the criminals he released from prison or the Antifa mobs attack you on the streets. Will Ohio Republicans stand up to this Republican in name only? read more

Video Podcast – Gun Confiscation Thanks to COVID

by: Brent Smith

Last year I was still convinced that no matter what, gun confiscation could not happen in America.

Now I’m not so sure. After witnessing over the last several months how compliant the massively overwhelming majority of people, gun owners included, were so quick to blindly comply with government COVID edicts, I’m becoming much less confident that these same Americans will stand up and choose NOT to comply.

When the federal government declares “gun violence” a National health emergency and mandates that something be done, whatever that something is, will the people, as they have with COVID, just once again roll-over and take it?

We are presently being conditioned to comply and gun confiscation is one of their goals that will require it. read more

Blood Pressure Medicine for Longer Life

Preclinical research suggests a drug used to treat hypertension may offer lifespan-extending effects by helping activate a mitochondrial repair process
Preclinical research suggests a drug used to treat hypertension may offer lifespan-extending effects by helping activate a mitochondrial repair process

Scientists from Osaka City University have found metolazone, an anti-hypertension drug that has been around for almost 50 years, can kickstart a lifespan-extending cellular repair process in roundworms. The research suggests this mechanism could be translatable to humans, offering new research pathways in the search for an anti-aging drug.

A Perilous Precedent has been Set by the Supreme Court

by: Brent Smith

I agree 100% with the author, Jerome Michaels, regarding this topic. It does seem that our United States supreme Court has abandoned us, and more importantly, abandoned their sworn duty to uphold and defend the Constitution. Because of their non-decision regarding the 2020 election States vs States case, our nation may be irreparably harmed.

And all, in my opinion and his, to avoid making the right choice to at least hear what the plaintiff States had to say for themselves. But no, they punted instead, or more appropriately, as referees, just called the game entirely before the clock even ran out.

But hey, look at size of their building. Must be plenty of places to hide!

from the American Thinker:

A Supreme Court in Hiding is Dangerous for Our Country

In accordance with Art VI of the Constitution, every sitting Supreme Court justice has taken an oath swearing that he or she will “support this Constitution.” The Constitution the justices have sworn to protect is predicated upon free and fair elections so that the government reflects the will of the People. When the justices refuse to protect election integrity, they are violating their sworn oath and putting our constitutional republic at grave risk. read more

Paint-On Bandage Measures Oxygen Levels

A new glowing bandage could help reduce the rates of failed tissue transplants
A new glowing bandage could help reduce the rates of failed tissue transplants

Getting transplanted tissue to behave like the original tissue isn’t always a smooth process, and one of the things physicians look out for following a procedure is how well it takes in oxygen. Wired devices called oximeters are the gold standard when it comes to monitoring this in recovering patients, but scientists at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) may have found a better way forward in a paint-on bandage that glows in response to the levels of oxygen in the tissue.

WND Exclusive – How the ‘pandemic’ will change if/when Biden takes office

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

Going forward into 2021, it will be interesting to see just how the left plans to deal with the pseudo-pandemic.Joe Biden Details 'Science-Backed' COVID-19 Plan, Accuses President Donald  Trump Of Failing American People – CBS Philly

The way I see it, they have two options. Well, I guess actually three, but the third is a non-starter, which is coming clean and admitting to everyone that they lied about the severity of COVID for most of the population and they purposely inflated both the contraction and death rates to gain an election advantage. read more

Video Podcast – Bomb Explodes – Leftists are Jerks

by: Brent Smith

By now most have heard the news of a massive explosion in Nashville, Tn.

It happened at 6:30, Christmas morning.

There’s nothing funny about this, but it seems odd that hours later many were still saying “they believe” or it may have been “an intentional act.

Why is this odd you ask. Well it didn’t take long for eye witnesses to come forth, telling authorities that they were warned by a recording coming from an RV parked outside an AT&T data center building in Nashville.

Apparently the RV had been parked there since sometime Thursday evening. read more

Greedy Ruling Class is First to be Vaccinated

by: Brent Smith

Stu Burguiere of the Blaze once said that the left will never put the people before their agenda and their own selfish ambitions.

He couldn’t have been more correct. And we are seeing a couple of recent examples of this heinous trait of the left.

One is of course the stimulus bill, or lack thereof, that president Trump has sent back to them to fix. And the second, which is the subject of this article, is the parsing out of the COVID vaccine.

There are around 50 million Americans over the age of 65. Even less of 70 plus, which is apparently considered elderly. read more
