Sufferers of type 1 diabetes are required to constantly monitor their blood glucose levels and administer insulin as needed. But the daily hassle of self-care for patients could soon be reduced, with a new study concluding that automated “artificial pancreas” systems could be available in as little as two years.
Most of us have had a so-called ‘senior moment’ – forgetting a person’s name or where the word we’re after is on the tip of our tongue.
Now scientists have discovered what is responsible for the lapses in memory – our brains are too full of useless information.
Older people struggle to remember important details because their brains can’t resist the irrelevant ‘stuff’ they soak up subconsciously.
This lack of clutter control becomes increasingly apparent the older a person gets causing their brains to become more filled with information.
As a result, people tend to be less confident in their memories – even when their recollections are correct.
Researchers from the Georgia Institute of Technology looked at brain activity from EEG sensors and saw that older participants wandered into a brief ‘mental time travel’ when trying to recall details.
A breakthrough treatment for multiple sclerosis has been shown to halt the disease in its tracks.
Doctors used chemotherapy to kill off patients’ faulty immune cells and then replaced their stem cells to ‘reset’ the system.
The clinical trial, involving 24 patients, had remarkable results.
All but one of the Canadian patients were able to come off all medication for seven and a half years without their disease progressing.
In this episode I discuss an Afghan man with ties to the Taliban who was smuggled into the United States after traveling through 10 separate countries to get here. He was apprehended by 5 Pakistani men who accompanied were given asylum.
Segment two the discussion turns to the first Zika baby born in the New York tri-state area and the mother was from Honduras, possibly getting here on a tourist visa, expressly to have her child in America.
Segment three: The Donald may actually win the general election, thanks in part due to violent anti-Trump protests repeatedly caught on video for undecided voters to see. He may actually get the sympathy vote from people outraged by anti-Trump violence.

Here we go again. Here is another example of government not only not solving a problem which they created in the first place, but by “solving it,” they made things worse. Of course this is government’s standard M.O.
How many times do small government conservatives have to assert that government doesn’t solve problems – they are the problem. And how many times do we have to be proven right before the madness ends. Okay – that’s a silly question.
The latest example of government making worse the problem they created is the V.A. healthcare system. Feel free to also call it a vision of the future of Obamacare. And why is it that America’s heroes are always the ones getting the shaft?
We never seem to hear about the sorry state of the welfare system, or any of the other hundreds of government giveaway programs. They seem to get their checks and benefits on time. It’s always our veterans, the men and women who put it all on the line for our country, who get the government short-shrift.
The clear albumen surrounding an egg’s yolk was spun into a super-thin wafer used in a degradable chip known as a memristor
Durability is often touted as the hallmark of good electronics, but sometimes you want components that don’t last all that long. For example, it would be handy if microelectronic systems that delivered drugs to various parts of the body dissolved after their task was done. Or if sensors that monitor pollution simply dissolved after they were finished reporting, rather than contributing to even more environmentally-damaging material. A team of researchers from the UK and China has just figured out how to create one such chip out of eggs.

This was the plan from the very beginning.
In 2003, at an AFL-CIO (USSR) symposium, Obama said: “I happen to be a proponent of a single payer universal health care plan.” He then stated that there is no reason why the richest country to ever exist, “that spends 14% of its GNP on healthcare cannot provide basic health insurance to everybody.”
Most of us remember these sage words from then nobody Obama. But even back then nobody Obama was playing word games, mixing “healthcare” with “health insurance,” as if they are the same. Now that Obamacare has been instituted for a few years, the public is finding out that “health insurance” does not equal “healthcare.”
He then went on to say that “we may not get there immediately.” He told the audience that, “first we gotta take back the White House, we gotta take back the Senate and we gotta take back Congress.” He obviously underestimated how easy it would eventually be to roll over the Republicans.
