Scientists investigating the driving factors behind certain neurological diseases have uncovered a new class of proteins that could help us intervene in some of the destructive processes that take place in the brain. The findings throw up new possibilities when it comes to treating Alzheimer’s and schizophrenia, with the team hopeful they can also shed light on why some are more susceptible to these types of diseases than others.
What’s the difference between the Communist Chinese dragging people out of their homes for “safety” sake, and today’s America?
Answer: Location – that’s all. One is forced to leave their home, the other is forced to stay put.
Now what’s the difference between the Communist Chinese welding peoples’ doors shut so they can’t escape, and demanding American citizens not leave their home under penalty of the new police State? Answer: Very little.
Is this what we’ve so rapidly devolved into?

Kentucky Couple Forced To Wear Ankle Bracelets After Refusing Self-Isolation Order
A Kentucky couple can’t travel more than 200 feet from home after authorities slapped a pair of ankle bracelets on them following an argument over COVID-19.
Elizabeth Linscott tested positive for the virus last weekend despite having no symptoms. Following her test, the health department contacted her and asked that she sign documents agreeing to self-quarantine unless she calls the health department first. Linscott refused to sign the form, the Self-isolation and Controlled Movement Agreed Order.
A lawyer’s dog is having a great time running around the neighborhood unleashed — it heads directly to the butcher shop and pilfers a roast.
from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:
There is presently a big push not only to rewrite both history and the present regarding blacks and slavery, but now the cancel culture mob has decided to also include American Indian heritage, at the expense of the evil white European settlers/oppressors.
Actually, we know what this really is and has been about – free market capitalism vs. Marxism/communism, but that’s for another time.
The Washington Redskins football team has been cowed into dropping the name “Redskins” for something more appropriate and sensitive to the feelings of Native Americans. The Washington Code Talkers really rolls off the tongue, doesn’t it. Don’t laugh – it’s a real suggestion.
Thanks to the U.S. Supreme Court, does Oklahoma now have to be split in half and given back to the Indians? How is that going to work, Justice Gorsuch?
I’ve actually joked in past about if someone gets hit by a bus, the authorities will count him as a Covid-19 death. I guess it’s not a joke.
And hey – if you can’t believe State bureaucrats, who can you believe?

Florida man in his 20s listed among COVID-19 fatalities — but health officer says he died in motorcycle crash
While Florida listed a man in his 20s as among the state’s COVID-19 fatalities, a county health officer told WOFL-TV that the man died in a motorcycle crash.

Stephan Cannon was charged with first degree murder of retired St. Louis police captain David Dorn.
Now a second man has been charged with the murder of Dorn after looters broke into a pawn shop in north St. Louis.
Hopefully they’ll get what they deserve.
We all know about the Trail of Tears, but doubtful the whole story.
It’s not just one of the evils of the whitey white man.

Kayleigh McEnany is so effective that the MSM is now lying by deceptively editing her comments
Yesterday saw a new low in irresponsible media reporting on a briefing by a presidential press secretary. Many media outlets outright lied about what Kayleigh McEnany said by cutting her off in mid-sentence in a comment on school reopening, thereby creating an impression that was opposite of the truth.
Radiation is famously damaging, both to living tissue and materials. But now, engineers at MIT have been surprised to discover that radiation may actually help certain alloys to self-heal, extending their useful lifetime. This could obviously help inform future power plant designs.
In nuclear reactors, radiation is known to accelerate corrosion of most materials, leading to eventual failure and possibly disastrous consequences. So for the new study, researchers at MIT and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory set out to quantify just how bad that corrosion would be under different radiation levels.
