Obama: Economy to get worse before it improves

"We've got to provide a blood infusion to the patient right now to make sure that the patient is stabilized. And that means that we can't worry short term about the deficit. We've got to make sure that the economic stimulus plan is large enough to get the economy moving," he said.

From Fear to Truth

The best way to wire an individual's brain for fear is to consistently state the exact same premise over and over again regardless of the veracity of such statements. As neuroscientists predict, individuals will unconsciously begin to believe such statements and the more often these ideas are reinforced, the stronger the hard wiring becomes.

HSV1 linked to Alzheimer's

The virus behind cold sores may be linked to Alzheimer's, and the disease could be treatable with existing drugs, research has found.

Scientists at the University of Manchester found the virus behind cold sores, herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV1), was a major cause of the protein plaques found in the brains of Alzheimer's sufferers.

Their research, published in the Journal of Pathology, suggests HSV1 could be a significant factor in developing the disease.

On Monday, December 1, a SWAT team with semi-automatic rifles entered the private home of the Stowers family in LaGrange, Ohio, herded the family onto the couches in the living room, and kept guns trained on parents, children, infants and toddlers, from approximately 11 AM to 8 PM. The team was aggressive and belligerent. The children were quite traumatized. At some point, the “bad cop” SWAT team was relieved by another team, a “good cop” team that tried to befriend the family.

Al-Qaeda is a front organization of CIA and MOSSAD

The Mumbai based group alleged that Al-Qaeda is a front organization of CIA and MOSSAD. "There is enough evidence that the Al-Qaeda is a front organization of the CIA and MOSSAD. The Bush junta has used the bogey of terror and of Al Qaeda to justify his unending and ever expanding Global War on Terror, which is only a means of capturing the resources of the world and of establishing the sole hegemony of Israel in West Asia," said the group of activists and intellectuals. The group is holding a press conference in Mumbai on Wednesday to "expose the links between Al-Qaeda and the CIA-MOSSAD".

GM, Chrysler Literally Can't Afford Bankruptcy

This would be funny if it weren't so sad. It seems bankruptcy is not an option for GM or Chrysler, but not because they're "too big to fail", as we've been told, but rather it's because they can't even finance a bankruptcy.

The planet is the most Earth-like ever spotted and is thought to have perfect conditions for water, an essential ingredient for life. Researchers detected the planet orbiting one of Earth's nearest stars, a cool red dwarf called Gliese 581, 20 light years away in the constellation of Libra.

World oil prices tumble below $40 mark with no 'floor' in sight

By Agence France Presse (AFP) | Staff Writer | Dec 06 2008

LONDON: Crude oil prices plunged below $40 on Friday to their lowest levels in nearly four years, as worse-than-expected jobs data in the United States raised prospects of a severe decline in energy demand. In London, Brent North Sea crude slid to $39.50 a barrel, the lowest level since the January 2005. Light sweet crude for January slid to $42 in New York, also a near four-year low.

Grim Job Report Not Showing Full Picture

NY Times | DAVID LEONHARDT and CATHERINE RAMPELL | Dec 5

As bad as the headline numbers in Friday’s employment report were, they still made the job market look better than it really is.

Already, the share of men older than 20 with jobs was at its lowest point last month since 1983, and very close to the low point of the last 60 years. [...]

Jews Must Face 'Dark Side' Of Judaism

Stephen Bloom has a love of justice typical of many liberal American Jews. A journalism professor, he saw the opening of a Kosher meat packer in Postville Iowa in 1987 by Hasidic Jews as an opportunity to study the Jewish-gentile dynamic in microcosm. He discovered more about Judaism and the causes of anti-Semitism than perhaps he wanted to know.

His conclusion is from "Postville: A Clash of Cultures in Heartland America" published in 2000:

"Initially I had gone to Postville to learn from the Hasidim [orthodox Jews], to share with them a sense of identity and belonging. Instead, what the Postville Hasidim ultimately offered me was a glimpse of the dark side of my own faith, a look at Jewish extremists whose behavior not only made the Postville locals wince, but made me wince, too.

Why Are PCs and Gadgets So Slow? (Who's Breaking Moore's Law?)

If Moore's Law holds, which it will, the speed of processors will double over the next two years. Which would you rather have: Bloated new features that gobble up all those clock cycles before they get to you? Or would you rather have all your stuff run twice as fast?

Industry: It's time to put the feature bloat and spaghetti code on hold for two years, and get to work optimizing, minimizing and streamlining everything. We want speed. And we want it yesterday.
