B-CR-TEO
Infectious Theory Of
Alzheimer´s Disease
Draws Fresh Interest

NPR, by Bret Stetka

Original Article

Posted By:tisHimself, 9/10/2018 11:04:29 PM

Dr. Leslie Norins is willing to hand over $1 million of his own money to anyone who can clarify something: Is Alzheimer´s disease, the most common form of dementia worldwide, caused by a germ? By "germ" he means microbes like bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites. In other words, Norins, a physician turned publisher, wants to know if Alzheimer´s is infectious. It´s an idea that just a few years ago would´ve seemed to many an easy way to drain your research budget on bunk science.

Well this might be true but if so, why are only the older people catching it? Yeah, now and then someone young gets it but unless it takes a long time to gestate, I´m not sure I buy this. Of course, years ago no one would have believed stomach ulcers were caused by a bacteria until a dr actually drank it, got an ulcer, cured it with antibiotics.

My grandmother had Alzheimer’s. My mother had Alzheimer’s. My father had Alzheimer’s. My five brothers and sisters and I really hope a solution is found before we have to get our own wing in a dementia facility.

... a 2010 study published in the Journal of Neurosurgery showing that neurosurgeons die from Alzheimer´s at a seven-fold higher rate than they do from other disorders.

This is fascinating. I often wondered why we are hearing so much about this disease in recent years as compared with past years. It’s a promising new endeavor. With two friends who have it, I would love to see breakthroughs.

My late best friend died of Alzheimer´s, Christmas Eve, 2016. Another good friend has it.
Both were eccentric for decades, and in trying to understand the disorder, I did several internet searches.
One article covered research about herpes and alzheimer´s - may have been from the Mayo Clinic - and discussed future research exploring how the herpes could accelerate the deposits in the brain associated with Alzheimer´s.
Separate from the causes, what I observed with my best friend was especially sad. He rejected all medical advice, destroyed his family, allowed a greedy son in law to take him to an attorney, filed for divorce, and the son in law and daughter looted his possessions, using power of attorney.
Lawyers took advantage of the situation, and elder protection services was of no help.

While scientists figure out causes, the rest of us should try to figure out how to protect those poor souls.

Cupich supports pope,

caused by sex-abuse scandal
Chicago Sun Times, by Maudlyne Ihejirika    Original Article
Posted By: tisHimself- 9/17/2018 7:46:13     Post Reply
Cardinal Blase Cupich said Saturday night that Pope Francis and other church leaders, including himself, are confronting head-on the latest sex-abuse problems rocking the Catholic Church, but the cardinal didn’t directly address critics who have accused him of downplaying the scandal. A special Mass celebrated by Cupich capped a nine-day Novena prayer service series that aimed to promote healing in the wake of the string of revelations about clerical sex abuse.

The midterm elections will either halt or hasten the current soft coup whose aim is to overthrow a legally elected President now being conducted by the swamp. And if the history of Washington, D.C. corruption is any indication of what will happen after the midterms, the swamp will survive regardless of its coup´s success or failure. But the efforts to expose the treasonous plot will fade away into the dustbin of political history after being seen as just another waste of time and taxpayer money

Pope Francis at Mass:
Bishops must pray
to overcome ´Great Accuser’
Vatican News, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: tisHimself- 9/12/2018 5:08:25     Post Reply
In his homily at Mass on Tuesday morning, Pope Francis said it seems the "Great Accuser" is attacking the bishops of the Catholic Church to create scandal. The Pope invited the bishops to remember three things in these troubled times: their strength lies in being men of prayer; they should have the humility to remember they are chosen by God; and they need to remain close to the people. He reflected on the day’s Gospel (Lk 6:12-19), in which Jesus spends the night in prayer before choosing the Twelve Apostles, whom the Pope called “the first bishops”.

George W. Bush to fundraise

Former President George W. Bush is hitting the fundraising circuit for a handful of Republican House and Senate candidates, joining the party’s push to maintain its congressional majorities. Bush has maintained a low profile since leaving office in 2009. Yet as the midterm campaign season enters its final weeks and the party braces for the prospect of a Trump-fueled wave, Bush — who has been critical of the president — is putting his muscle behind Republicans in heated races.

Bannon: Trump is facing a ´coup´

Former White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon said in an interview released Sunday that President Trump is facing a "coup," after The New York Times published an anonymous op-ed written by a "senior administration official" criticizing the president. "What you saw the other day was as serious as it can get. This is a direct attack on the institutions," Bannon told Reuters. "This is a coup, OK?" The op-ed described how its author and other nameless officials work to curb the president´s worse impulses. "This is a crisis," Bannon told Reuters.

Utah Senate candidate and former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney criticized the GOP on Monday for ballooning the federal deficit after years of party rhetoric about fiscal responsibility. "Republicans have been shouting about this as long as I can remember,” Romney wrote on his campaign website. “We called for an amendment to balance the budget. Just a few years ago, the Tea Party movement brought new energy to the issue. But now that Republicans are in charge in Washington, we appear to have become silent about deficits and debt.”

Pope Francis should not resign over allegations he mishandled a sexual abuse scandal, said Steve Bannon, President Donald Trump´s former political strategist who is close to prominent Catholic conservatives. However, Bannon told Reuters he was working on setting up an independent, non-partisan tribunal to investigate decades of scandals within the U.S. Church, warning that dioceses across the country faced financial ruin because of the wrongdoing.

When readers see the new book, “The Worst President In History, the Legacy of Barack Obama,” liberals are likely to laugh at the list of 200 reasons. Conservatives are likely to think 200 is too few. For authors and Obama critics Matt Margolis and Mark Noonan, the list seems to grow every day, and is the reason they have just updated their 2016 book. Theirs is an account of the Democrat’s presidency and includes the controversies Obama waded into during his last months in office and first year in private life,

Not long after Pope Francis took office in March 2013, he ran into a wall. But it wasn’t the ancient Roman brickwork built around Vatican City. It was stronger. And it came from deep within the very church he was elected to lead. Every time he tried to introduce reforms, the wall was there. His foes were so strong he recently equated reforming the Catholic Church with “cleaning the Sphinx of Egypt with a toothbrush

From a pure economic/financial perspective this Nike branding campaign doesn’t make sense…. unless, you realize a much bigger picture. A hidden bigger picture. On its face, it just seems absurd. Why would any major corporation intentionally stake out a branding position that is adverse to their financial interests? I’ve spoken to some very excellent business actuaries on this late today; and one specific conversation finally helped to make it all make sense.

The woman accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault says the FBI should investigate the incident before senators hold a hearing on the allegations. In a letter addressed to Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley of Iowa, and obtained by CNN´s "Anderson Cooper 360," Christine Blasey Ford´s attorneys argue that "a full investigation by law enforcement officials will ensure that the crucial facts and witnesses in this matter are assessed in a non-partisan manner, and that the Committee is fully informed before conducting any hearing or making any decisions."

Debra Katz, the attorney for the woman accusing Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, said that it is not her client’s job to corroborate her claims. WATCH: (Video) Katz said on CNN on Monday that investigators should be responsible for proving Christine Blasey Ford’s claim that Kavanaugh held her down and drunkenly groped her while at a party in high school. During the interview, Katz revealed that there was another girl present at the party, which allegedly took place in 1982 while Kavanaugh was attending Georgetown Prep.

Trust a "psychologist" to wreak havoc with someone else´s family. When Christine Blasey Ford finally surfaced her over three decades-old claim of sexual assault by Brett Kavanaugh, when they were both teenagers, did she consider for a moment the effect of her accusation on Kavanaugh´s daughters, already escorted from the hearing room after witnessing their father being endlessly attacked by maniacs in the audience, not to mention Kavanaugh´s wife? And how about the dozen girls the judge used to coach who came to the hearing? Originally thrilled to be so honored, how do you think they and their families now

Bert and Ernie are more than just friends, according to “Sesame Street” writer Mark Saltzman. Saltzman, who joined the show in 1984, told Queerty the two puppets are a gay couple and their relationship is a reflection of his partnership with film editor Arnold Glassman. “I was Ernie. I look more Bert-ish. And [Arnold] as a film editor—if you thought of Bert with a job in the world, wouldn’t that be perfect? Bert with his paper clips and organization? And I was the jokester,” he revealed to the LGBTQ blog. “So it was the Bert and Ernie relationship,

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and his accuser Christine Blasey Ford will go head-to-head in testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee next Monday. The hearing sets up a potential show down on Capitol Hill, the likes of which have not been seen since Clarence Thomas and Anita Hill testified in 1991 after she accused him of sexual harassment. Thomas was ultimately confirmed after a bitter and bruising battle. But the Kavanaugh-Ford hearing comes more than 25 years later, amid the #metoo movement, and when women have been energized after the election of Donald Trump as president.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s treatment of a more than 3-decade-old sexual assault allegation against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was unfair all around. It was unfair to Kavanaugh, unfair to his accuser and unfair to Feinstein’s colleagues — Democrats and Republicans alike — on the Senate Judiciary Committee. Feinstein, a California Democrat, took the worst possible course by waiting until almost a week after Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing was completed to ominously announce that she had turned over “information from an individual” about Kavanaugh to the FBI, and adding that she would be honoring the woman’s “strongly requested” confidentiality.

When Christine Blasey Ford finally admitted that it was she who had leveled the uncorroborated charges of sexual assault against SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh, she was immediately asked if she would be willing to repeat her charges under oath. Her lawyer, Democratic activist Debra Katz, claimed her client was willing to testify before Congress. However, according to the Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, neither Ford nor her lawyer has responded to any of several attempts to confirm that she will attend the Monday hearing that was set up so she can tell her story in Kavanaugh’s presence.
