Fast Food May Save Your Life

The fat found in fast food can help protect against the deadliest form of skin cancer, a study claims.

Experts found that palmitic acid, which is in products such as burgers and cookies, fuels a protein involved in the pigmentation process to help protect against harmful skin cancer mutations.

While fast food can have harmful effects on the heart and brain, it could prevent melanoma, a deadly skin cancer.

Rates of people being diagnosed with melanoma have increased the past 30 years in the United States. The American Cancer Society estimates close to 10,000 people will die from the cancer this year.

Experts said this breakthrough in research could lead to a drug for those who are red hair, fair skinned or have consistently tanned, all of whom are more at risk to get skin cancer.

A fat found in fast food can help prevent someone from getting melanoma, a new study showed. Palmitic acid is found in a lot of fast food such as burgers, fries and cookies. This acid, or fatty lipid, fought against mutations that cause skin cancer in mice

State Department Still as Useless as Ever

Well this is stunningly disappointing! As we thought things would change, we find they just stay the same.

from Conservative Review:

State Dept blames Israel for causing Palestinian violence

Rex Tillerson’s State Department added blistering anti-Israel language to this year’s “Country Reports on Terrorism,” adopting a tone not seen even during the hostile Obama era.

On Wednesday, Tillerson submitted the annual report to Congress. This year’s report may come as a shock to the overwhelmingly pro-Israel majority that elected Donald Trump president.

The report appears to blame Israel for the lack of peace between the two sides, pointing to a “lack of hope” as a “driver” for Palestinian violence. read more

Server Issue

Sorry to all my readers, that I had nothing for you this morning. It wasn’t for lack of trying. The company I work with had a major server issue, preventing me from getting to my site to post anything.

God willing and the creek don’t rise, everything will be back to normal tomorrow.

Thanks for your understanding – I mean – assuming you’re understanding and/or give a crap.

Mars Colonists May Evolve

Nasa plans to put humans on Mars by 2030 and has already begun to test the limits of its astronauts.

But we may have to take more drastic steps – including modifications to the body and mind – if we are ever to succeed in visiting our inhospitable neighbour.

And once we arrive on the red planet, its unique environment could force rapid evolutionary changes creating a whole new species, experts claim.

THE PREDICTIONS 

Electronic devices to enhance the senses and drugs to dull panic and other emotional responses may be needed to successfully complete the trip to Mars.

Any humans who choose to stay and colonise the planet will be faced with other challenges, including the risk of inbreeding.

Colonists may quickly – in scientific terms – evolve into a separate species, with darker skin and thickened bones.

Social problems faced here on Earth, like conflicts, crime and wars, will also need to be addressed.

Cognitive scientist Konrad Szocik at the University of Information Technology and Management in Rzeszow, Poland, believes that preparations being carried out by Nasa come nowhere near to a realistic simulation of the conditions that they will face.

He suggests that electronic devices to enhance the senses and drugs to dull panic and other emotional responses may be needed to successfully complete the trip.

And any humans who choose to stay may evolve into a separate species, according to evolutionary biologist Scott Soloman.

Illegals – We Know Where They are – So Let the Deportations Begin

The latest from Pew Research  is that there are approximately 11.1 millions illegal aliens in America presently. That’s 3.5 percent of our total population.

Of that 11.1 million, Pew states that 61 percent of them reside in just 20 cities, or metropolitan areas. Of those cities, Austin, Texas has the fewest at 100,000, while metro areas like New York City and Los Angeles take the top two spots. That 61% equates to 6.8 million illegals concentrated in a relatively small area.

Surprisingly, the cities of San Francisco and Oakland only came in at number 11. They’ve really got to work on getting their numbers up. They accounted for only 240,000 criminal aliens. Frankly that is an embarrassment for the poster city of undocumented democrats.

The Washington DC/Arlington/Alexandria, Va. area came in seventh at 400,000. Of course I’m sure they need every one of them to cook, clean and mow the lawns of thousands of federal government employees, lobbyists, Senators and Congressman. read more

No Saturday Article

Howdy folks. There will be no new article today. I picked this weekend to get some downtime with my kids.

I will endeavor to do a Podcast for Sunday, and then it’s back to normal on Monday.

Thanks for understanding. Hope everyone had a blessed Thanksgiving.

Atlantis Wiped out by Tsunami

The legend of Atlantis is one of the oldest myths of mankind, first told by Plato in around 360 BC, describing a prosperous land that disappeared without a trace and sunk into the sea.

Many people believe that Santorini was once Atlantis, where a destructive eruption generated tsunamis that wiped out the Minoan culture.

A new study suggests that the tsunamis may have been generated by the pyroclastic flow of volcanic material into the sea – a theory that challenges previous explanations.
