Outside of expensive transplants and drugs with questionable effectiveness, a proper treatment has continued to elude the great number of scientists working in the realm of hair loss. But sources of optimism are never far away, the latest coming out of Japan’s Yokohama National University where scientists have developed an improved technique they claim brings higher rates of follicle growth and could be scaled up to cover larger, vaster expanses more efficiently. read more

Video Podcast – Climate Change Virtue Signalers – Michelle for POTUS

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Hot Air writes: “What do former President Barack Obama, Prince Harry, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Katy Perry have in common? All of them are famous, extremely wealthy, and environmental scolds. They talk a big game about saving the planet and fighting global warming but then they travel to Google Camp and just like that, their hypocrisy is exposed.”

Yes – climate change virtue signalers show up at the lavish Google Camp in private jets and mega-yachts to discuss how the rest of us should be more responsible, yet can’t seem to see the irony in their own actions.

Michael Moore says Michelle Obama should run for President. I beg to differ. I discuss that whether she should or not is immaterial. She won’t run and I’ll explain why. read more

WND Exclusive – What comes after ‘Medicare for All’?

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

According to leading polls of Democratic primary voters, health care is still one the top issues. And it took center stage, as a new human right, by means of the new progressive socialist tag-team, Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, during Tuesday’s Democratic debate.

On night 2, there was not the unbridled enthusiasm for the Sanders-Warren Medicare for All scheme, as Joe Biden threw cold water on it and defended Obamacare. But he appears to be one of only a few. To many of the rest, it’s like Obamacare never existed – like it had no positive effect on “health care” at all.

It didn’t, by the way.

And here we are today. It’s déjà-vu all over again (h/t: Yogi Berra). Almost a decade after Obamacare was signed into law, the issue is still front and center. read more

Upset Mother takes it Out on a 10 Year Old Kid

At a conference recently, Senator Ted Cruz said that “Universities Are Trying Hard To Raise A Generation Of Pansies.” Well, they’re not the only ones. Some parents are doing a bang up job of it two. But this time it sounds like the pansy isn’t the kid, but the Mom. And what goes hand in glove with pansydom? That’s right – litigation.

from WXYZ in Michigan:

“Hypersaline brine” is industrial waste-water with salt levels that exceed even that of seawater. It’s a big, expensive, destructive problem which a team of engineers at Columbia University in New York City hope to solve with their solvent-based method of desalination. read more

Justice is Not Blind – It Sees Only What It Wants to See

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Scroll Down for Audio Version

We’ve all heard the saying that “Justice is Blind.” Thus the statue of Justitia, or lady Justice, blindfolded and holding the scale of equal justice under the law.

As nice a sentiment and goal that is, it is not reality. Rather it said that there are two systems of justice. One for the haves and one for the have-nots.

But even that’s not accurate, at least not anymore. Now we three systems, or tiers of justice. One for the have-nots, one for the haves and one reserved only for a politically well connected inner circle.

The have nots are the regular folks, like you and me. If we ever find ourselves on the wrong side of the law, regardless of the circumstance, we can expect zero perks and zero favors done on our behalf. We can expect the full measure of justice handed down as punishment for our transgressions, owing only to the compassion and mercy of a jury and/or judge.

Our only hope is that the judge and/or jury may find some sympathy for and pity on us, thus lessening our punishment slightly.

The haves are the next up in our three-tiered justice system. read more

The over-abundance or lack of certain types of gut bacteria has been linked to everything from depression to heart disease to childhood asthma. Non-invasively determining which microbes make up a person’s “gut microbiome,” however, can be difficult – which is why a new 3D-printed capsule was developed. read more
