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.

Here´s How Mitt Romney
Could Win in 2020
National Interest, by David Pring-Mill    Original Article
Posted By: tisHimself- 11/18/2018 6:22:15     Post Reply
It has been speculated that Mitt Romney’s Utah Senate seat could serve as a prelude to another Presidential run. In the most ambitious version of events, he could even challenge Donald Trump in the 2020 primaries, newly legitimized and augmented by his actions in the Capitol Building. This would allow moderate Republicans to reclaim their party’s mantle and unroot alt-right influences. But would Romney do it? His willingness to unequivocally challenge Trump could be seen either as a pro or con by Republicans, depending on their opinions of the sitting president.

Former first lady Michelle Obama’s memoir, Becoming, sold 725,000 copies on its first day on the market, making it the biggest opening for a book in 2018 under publishing company Penguin Random House. The figures include preorder and first-day sales of hardcover, audio, and ebook editions of the memoir sold in the U.S. and Canada, the Associated Press reported. The first-day sales for Becoming surpassed former first lady Hillary Clinton’s presidential memoir, Living History, which only sold 600,000 copies in its first week.

NeverTrump Republicans have been rabidly obsessed since 2015 to prevent Donald Trump’s nomination, election, and having failed, to join the left in nonstop criticism and condemnation of President Trump. They may be succeeding, but to what end? As they look around at the current political landscape, are they truly happy with the direction of the country? Or is that irrelevant, as long as they can strut around on their high horse, feeling smug, telling each other “I told you so”? The NeverTrump movement began shortly after Trump announced his candidacy for the presidency. So-called “principled Republicans” were incensed

The Pope Is The Problem

The bishops of America’s 196 Catholic dioceses and archdioceses gathered in Baltimore on Monday morning, meeting for the first time since sexual abuse scandals rocked the church in the summer. They planned to vote on measures to tackle the crisis and prevent further crimes. In the opening minutes of their meeting, the bishops heard a surprising report: Pope Francis had asked them not to vote on any of their proposals.

Mitt Romney could bring
something important to Washington
and to the GOP
Washington Post, by Ed Rogers    Original Article

His election wasn’t close and his campaign didn’t get much attention in Washington, but Mitt Romney coming to the U.S. Senate is a big deal. John McCain’s death created a vacuum in the Republican Party. The late senator from Arizona was unique in the GOP, but some honest and uninhibited voices could begin to fill the void. Romney is no McCain, but he could emerge as a powerful, independent voice. Romney certainly won’t be a sellout to the White House, and he won’t be intimidated by President Trump.

The president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops opened its conference in Baltimore Monday by saying that at the “insistence” of the Vatican, the American clerics would not vote as planned on steps to address a sex abuse crisis that has reached the highest levels of the church in the United States. In the weeks leading up to the assembly of leaders of U.S. dioceses, the group’s administrative committee hammered out recommendations for discussion and planned votes on whether to approve them.

Mitt Romney easily defeated Salt Lake County Councilwoman Jenny Wilson to clinch an open Utah Senate seat, positioning him to become the highest-profile freshman senator since Hillary Clinton’s successful New York bid in 2000 when her husband was still president. With his more than 60 percent win, the 2012 Republican presidential nominee is poised to fill a power vacuum in the Senate GOP. The party has lost many of its most senior members and moderate voices through retirement, not to mention the death of John McCain. Purists from both parties have looked to Romney

Now Americans get to decide. Our democracy is corrupted by big money, scarred by efforts to suppress the vote or to gerrymander districts, and stained by scurrilous campaigning, led in this instance by the president himself. Yet, in the end, democracy empowers us to decide who will lead us, who we will reward with our support and who we will spurn. In Tuesday’s election, no matter who wins or loses, some things have become crystal clear.

Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez revealed this weekend that she has no idea what the three branches of the U.S. government are during a conference call with prospective far-left political candidates. "If we work our butts off to make sure that we take back all three chambers of Congress — uh, rather, all three chambers of government: the presidency, the Senate, and the House," Ocasio-Cortez said on Saturday while on a call with Justice Democrats.

Just hours after finishing a tumultuous election recount on Sunday, Broward Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes submitted her resignation. “It is true. She did send it,” said Burnadette Norris-Weeks, an attorney who works as counsel to the Supervisor of Elections Office. Evelyn Perez-Verdia, a former office spokeswoman who left several years ago, said Sunday evening she was told by people in the office that the letter was sent “to Tallahassee” earlier in the day. Norris-Weeks said she saw an early draft of the letter. In the version she saw, she said Snipes, 75, expressed a desire to spend more time with her family.

An outrageous discussion unfolded on CNN recently focused on how most white women who voted for President Donald Trump must be “racist.”Only one of the all-female panel hosted by CNN’s Don Lemon pushed back in the discussion on why the president resonates with most white women, delivering a blistering take-down of the argument that white women who have a “deep investment in white supremacy” voted for Trump.

Championing the cause of the poor, Pope Francis on Sunday lamented that "the wealthy few" enjoy what, "in justice, belongs to all" and said Christians cannot remain indifferent to the growing cries of the exploited and the indigent, including migrants. Francis invited about 6,000 poor people as well as some of the volunteers who help them to the splendor of St. Peter´s Basilica where he celebrated Mass on a day the Catholic Church dedicates to the needy. Later, he sat down with 1,500 of the indigent for a lunch of lasagna, chicken, mashed potatoes and tiramisu in a Vatican auditorium.

For someone who has thrust herself on the national stage, Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez sure has thin skin. The proud democratic socialist and newly elected congresswoman from New York has a knack for making confusing statements, or “word slips,” as she calls them, and is real quick to play the victim if anyone calls attention to them. Her latest flub occurred on Saturday when Ocasio-Cortez called for taking back “all three chambers of Congress,” before quickly correcting herself to say “all three chambers of government,” naming the presidency along with the House and Senate. “If we work our butts off to make

California Gov. Jerry Brown appears to have quietly admitted President Donald Trump´s suggestion about improving California forestry was correct and is now urging state lawmakers to loosen restrictive logging regulations put in place to appease environmentalists. The Santa Cruz Sentinel reports that Brown is proposing one of the most significant changes to the state´s logging rules in nearly half a century. "Gov. Jerry Brown is proposing broad new changes to California’s logging rules that would allow landowners to cut larger trees and build temporary roads without obtaining a permit as a way to thin more forests across the state," the

In a lengthy, taped interview that aired on Sunday, Fox News´s Chris Wallace asked President Donald Trump some expected questions -- about the Mueller investigation, "fake news," the election, the Kashoggi murder, his divisive tone -- and then came something unexpected. Wallace wondered if Trump would try to amend the Constitution so he could serve a third term. The exchange began when Wallace asked the president to rank himself "in the pantheon of great presidents." "There is Lincoln and Washington, there´s FDR and Reagan. Do you make the top 10?" Wallace asked Trump. "I think I´m doing a great job," Trump said. "I would

Before killing himself with a drug intended for rapid and painless animal euthanasia, Richard A. Morrisett had endured a nightmare at the University of Texas in Austin. The 57-year-old tenured professor of pharmacology and toxicology was once a rising star in the College of Pharmacy – a man regarded as a first-rate research scientist and teacher during his 21 years at the state´s flagship university. Morrisett´s research offered new insights into alcohol-related brain disorders and alcoholism – an arcane area of research among neuroscientists. Some colleagues called him “brilliant.” Morrisett´s career, however, was destroyed by a single newspaper article. Published

Scientists say they have uncovered how and why wombats produce cube-shaped poo - the only known species to do so. The Australian marsupial can pass up to 100 deposits of poop a night and they use the piles to mark territory. The shape helps it stop rolling away. Despite having round anuses like other mammals, wombats do not produce round pellets, tubular coils or messy piles. Researchers revealed on Sunday the varied elasticity of the intestines help to sculpt the poop into cubes. "The first thing that drove me to this is that I have never seen anything this weird in biology. That was
