SCIENTISTS HAVE announced plans to genetically modify the dangerous H7N9 virus to make it more lethal. They say it will help them understand how it could mutate in nature and trigger… Read more »
THE SPREAD of the pneumonic disease in Ukraine is our top story. As of today, media in the U.K. are reporting over a million infected, and Dr. Henry Niman reports… Read more »
THE SHOOTINGS at Fort Hood on November 5 dominate the news today, and rightly so. We discuss Major Nidal Malik Hasan and his connection to a couple of the 9/11 hijackers. We also discussed an odd detail connected to the shootings in Orlando the day after the terror event at Fort Hood. And what is reported as an H1N1 outbreak in Ukraine continues to spread rapidly. As of today, over a million have contracted the flu, nearly 53,000 are hospitalized, and 174 have died.
NO MATTER what they call it — “public option”, “consumer option”, socialism, fascism — the end will be the same: more control in fewer hands. It’s been coming for two thousand years, but we know who wins in the end.
DRAWING ON her experience as a molecular biologist, Sharon highlights some interesting connections in tonight’s show: it appears that DynCorp, a longtime military contractor and suspected CIA cutout, has its fingers in a company that just announced a successful H1N1 vaccine — and saw its stock price jump 21% today.
TODAY’S SHOW covered a range of topics, but most of our time was spent discussing genetically modified crops and the difficulty in finding out how GM foods affect our health. Meanwhile, H1N1 vaccines are being fast-tracked, with human trials only intended to determine dosage — not whether the vaccines are actually safe.
WE must laugh or else we’ll cry. We’ve been told that the trillion dollar deficits as far as the eye can see are necessary to balance the budget; war in… Read more »
THE hottest new do-it-yourself trend is genetic engineering. No, seriously; “biohackers”, like the community at DIYbio.org, want to encourage amateur biologists who’ve always dreamed of creating their own species. This… Read more »
NANCY PELOSI continues to try to dodge the verbal slings and arrows of those who supported her because she was against torture, only to learn that she was for it… Read more »
