The Mail online has an article titled “Are low-carb diets BAD for you? Nutrition expert claims giving up grains can lead to heart disease and cancer” where they make the following claim:
Low-carbohydrate diets are all the rage, but one nutrition expert has claimed that they may not be as healthy as we think.
According to Dr T Colin Campbell’s new book The Low-Carb Fraud, giving up grains can mean putting yourself
The last few months have resulted in us all being bombarded with revelations like this one, proving that the Obamacare is an epic disaster. I can’t say i am surprised to find out that the employer mandate will impact even the public sector negatively. I now am convinced that this bill was written to destroy the healthcare system and the economy, so the collectivists could swoop in and take a permanent hold on power … Read more
Some scientists are claiming that they have found the most massive entity in the universe. From the article:
The galaxy known prosaically as M87 doesn’t look like much. Unlike beautiful spiral galaxies (including the Milky Way), M87 appears as an orangish blob of stars through telescopes. Its only noticeable feature is the long streamer of gas emanating from the galactic center.
The source of that jet is far from prosaic, however: It’s a black
Every once in a while, innovation comes our way, courtesy of someoen that didn’t want to just do it the same old way:
Instead of vials of blood—one for every test needed—Theranos requires only a pinprick and a drop of blood. With that they can perform hundreds of tests, from standard cholesterol checks to sophisticated genetic analyses. The results are faster, more accurate, and far cheaper than conventional methods.

Excellence (or lack thereof) to the point that it separates you from 99.9% of the population, this should be celebrated. An appreciation of the individual, even those needed to balance out the Bell Curve, E pluribus unum.
Jeff Schneider has a good post up about how our country, for all its talk of liberty, devotes too much attention and reverence to men of power. He’s specifically talking about memorials and coins, which are almost universally devoted to politicians with a few generals thrown in. Don Boudreaux riffed off this to come up with a list of people he would put on our coins and currency in place of the current list of … Read more
No, seriously, I am not kidding, these bozos are making the claim that they have cured AIDS:
More than 36 million people worldwide have died from the AIDS virus across the globe, and another 35.3 million are currently living with the disease.
But they no longer have any reason to worry. The Egyptian Army has defeated the disease.
Or so claimed Egyptian Gen. Dr. Ibrahim Abdel-Atti, chief of the medical branch. “We
Today marks the 5th anniversary of the Porculus bill that the left told us would solve all the problems causes by evil Boosh dropping taxes and starting all the wars they were for before they were against them. I suspect the LSM will not bring this up, because frankly, things look bleaker, if anything, today then they did then. And we only pissed away some $6 trillion to get here. No problem they don’t think … Read more
The L.A. Times has a short article titled Record number of educated women are ‘marrying down’, where they bandy the following set of statistics:
A record number of American women are “marrying down,” tying the knot with a husband who is less educated than they are, according to a new study.
Nearly 21% of married women in 2012 were better educated than their spouses, a threefold jump from 1960, according to the Pew Research
