Early Warning Sign for Cardiovascular Disease.

The accumulation of plaque inside the arteries can be an insidious condition with grave consequences that include blood clots and strokes, but luckily it does give off some tell-tale signs. Researchers in the UK have developed a new type of glowing probe that focuses on one of them, increasing its fluorescence in the presence of a key enzyme and possibly acting as an early warning sign for cardiovascular disease.

WND Exclusive – 2nd Amendment: What does ‘bear Arms’ really mean?

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

Well, our vaunted United States Supreme Court has agreed to take up a case regarding the Second Amendment.

This is pretty uncommon, but it does happen – mostly because the Supremes over the years haven’t dared to actually do their jobs to the fullest, so their decisions seem to encompass a narrow scope and half-measures, never fully putting to bed that the Second Amendment clearly gives the right of an individual to “keep,” which means to own, and “bear,” which means to carry, arms on one’s person.

The Second Amendment makes no distinction between open and concealed carry, and thus any argument against either is moot. Nor does it make mention of licenses and/or permits, which is what this upcoming case is about, so these, too, are moot. read more

Video Podcast – Inflation is Here

Inflation is here. The Biden administration is lying, the supposed “independent” Federal Reserve is lying. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen is lying. The media is lying, although some have figured out that it’s just impossible any more to say there is no inflation.

You can tell they’re lying by the word games they play with us.

First they came out and said there is no inflation. And they could say that because they would average prices over the previous year, and insist on just telling us only about indexed inflation numbers.

Now they say that yes there inflation, but it’s only temporary – it’s transitory.

Allow me to quote some inflationary figures to show that there sure is inflation and maybe it’s not so transitory. read more

Armed Leftists Block traffic and Threaten Drivers

by: Brent Smith

Well, no matter what your current situation is, it could be worse.

You could live in Portland, Oregon, which is beginning to make Benghazi look like Disney World. And Benghazi at least had some good guys willing to fight. Where are the Portland police? Oh that’s right – they’re likely told to stand down or stand-by while dirtbag leftists with weapons block cars and threaten drivers.

The armed leftists – there’s an oxymoron for you – were apparently out “protesting” a legitimate police shooting of an armed thug, Patrick Kimmons, from 2018 – three years ago! What took them so long? read more

Tiny robots could serve all kinds of useful functions, but shrinking their actuators has proven challenging. Now researchers at the University of Wollongong (UOW) in Australia have made artificial muscles that surpass your puny natural ones, inspired by the “supercoiling” of DNA strands. read more

Look Ma – No Flu!

by: Brent Smith

Finally someone other than us edumicated dopes are telling the truth about the Covid scam.

An actual doctor has the courage to tell the truth, or at least ask some very obvious questions, like where has the flu gone? Every year millions contract the flu and tens of thousands die, but not this season.

How odd, I say both rhetorically and facetiously. read more

LongROAD may track Early Stage Dementia

Researchers have developed models that could predict mild cognitive impairment and dementia with 88 percent accuracy

A fascinating new study from a team of US researchers has used machine learning techniques to develop algorithms that can analyze naturalistic driving data and detect mild cognitive impairment and dementia in a driver. The work is still in the preliminary stages, however, the researchers claim it could be possible in the future to detect early signs of dementia using either a smartphone app or devices incorporated into car software systems. read more
