Ted Kennedy's Deadly Legacy for America

Ted Kennedy's Deadly Legacy For America
By Frosty Wooldridge

Teddy Kennedy died yesterday, but his legacy grows more deadly for future Americans.

Instead of a rich legacy bequeathed upon the United States by forever U.S. Senator Teddy Kennedy, the oft-intoxicated, blubbery fourth brother of the Kennedy clan-four decades ago--drunkenly drove over a bridge that caused the death of Mary Jo Kopechne and lied about what happened.

New flu vaccine contains a million times more squalene than the anthrax vaccine responsible for the Gulf war syndrom

"The same document indicates that vaccines containing the un-approved adjuvants will be given to 100 children 6 months to 3 years old, 100 children 3 years old to 8 years, 100 individuals 18 to 64 years old and 100 individuals 65 and older in each of the multiple clinical trials. In addition, 700 individuals in each trial will be given non-adjuvanted vaccine".

Now for the immunological side effects of squalene to occur takes months to years – and cannot be evaluated after up to 6 weeks of observation. Der Spiegel (9) calls the mass vaccinations on Europeans a gigantic cost free experiment to provide the FDA with mass vaccination experience to clear the track for sale in the US.

Robotic fish could patrol waterways

Pablo Valdivia, a research affiliate in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, works in his lab on a robotic fish he created with Professor Kamal Youcef-Toumi. The robot is designed to more easily maneuver into areas where traditional underwater autonomous vehicles cannot go.

Schools of newly-designed robotic fish could one day patrol waterways, swimming around as fluidly as the real fish they're based on, looking for environmental pollutants and inspecting submerged structures, such as boats and oil pipelines.

Newfound world may plunge to fiery doom

An artist's impression shows a "hot Jupiter" close to its parent star. Astronomers say a planet known as WASP-18b is so close to its sun that it should soon fall to its doom.

A newly discovered planet that whips around its star in less than a day may have been found mere cosmic moments before its demise.

To the moon again? Not on this NASA budget

The Ares first-stage, five-segment development motor is 154 feet in length, dwarfing the two workers looking at the rocket nozzle. The first stage is due to be tested in Utah on Thursday.

NASA will test the powerful first stage of its new Ares moon rocket Thursday, a milestone in a program that has already spent $7 billion for a rocket that astronauts may never use.

Students reveal swanky space hotel concept

Space hotel denizens may dine around a high-tech orbital table that organizes food choices for easy eating in weightlessness.

Space tourism may face some challenges with the uncertainty over the next-generation rides into space. But that hasn't stopped Earth designers from envisioning future space hotels for paying thrill seekers.

The media can't handle the truth - media sheep facing truth-hungry Internet wolves

Long under siege for "liberal bias," media careerists now find themselves confronted with people they see as passionate amateurs. True, fearless scrappers like my friend Joe Conason have always been around, and somebody like Paul Krugman -- a world-class economist who doesn't care what, say, MSNBC's Chris Matthews thinks of him -- can be very annoying.

But what's really driving these jokers up the wall is economic and intellectual competition from the Internet: people with first-class minds and a passion for truth that some of them can barely remember.

Weather supercomputer used to predict climate change is one of Britain's worst polluters

The Met Office has caused a storm of controversy after it was revealed their £30million supercomputer designed to predict climate change is one of Britain's worst polluters.

The massive machine - the UK's most powerful computer with a whopping 15 million megabytes of memory - was installed in the Met Office's headquarters in Exeter, Devon.

It is capable of 1,000 billion calculations every second to feed data to 400 scientists and uses 1.2 megawatts of energy to run - enough to power more than 1,000 homes.

Polls show atheists on the rise in America

DAVIE, Florida — When South Florida atheists held their first meeting, they were just five friends, having a beer at a bar.

Four years later, they’ve moved to a bigger place — still a bar — to hold their weekly meet-and-greets. Membership is up to almost 500, Darwin Day is in the planning stages and bumper stickers are on sale.

“There is no God, but ice-cream is great,” reads one. “What schools need is a moment of science,” reads another.

Atheist groups are growing all over the United States, challenging stereotypes and confronting what they consider a big backslide in the separation of church and state.

Just 6 More Months to Victory!

Somehow it’s always six more months. Back in the Vietnam War Secretary of State Robert McNamara and Army General William Westmoreland repeatedly promised that with the commitment of more soldiers in six more months the war would enter into a final phase leading to American victory. The U.S. fled Vietnam with its tail between its legs.

Israel's Super-Thermite Lab

The Israelis figured that they had all the bases covered. Having staged many similar terror attacks in Israel, they figured they could get away with the big job in New York City on 9-11. They knew that most Americans would never suspect Israel of being behind such an outrageous crime.

Facebook Group says:There Are “No Innocent Civilians in Gaza”

"The Hamas terrorist organization was elected *democratically* to control the Palestinian Authority. The Hamas gained an overwhelming majority (recall, that these elections were carried under the supervision of former U.S. President Jimmy Carter).
The ones who voted are the Palestinian civilians, who —-knew exactly—- what the organization platform is and still have chosen it in a large majority.
Therefore, we argue that there are no innocent civilians in the Gaza Strip, and we do not believe Israel should care about civilian casualties resulting from the Cast Lead Operation, which objective is to protect the Israelis citizens.

The citizens of Gaza Strip are significant supporters of terrorism, and therefore must pay the price!"

Facebook and Twitter users face pricier insurance as burglars 'shop' for victims' personal details on networking sites

Users of social networking websites could face higher insurance premiums because burglars are using them to 'shop' for victims' personal details.

Experts from leading insurer Legal & General warn that parents could eventually see their premiums rise even if only their children are members of popular sites such as Facebook and Twitter.

Many of the millions of users of these sites post details about their home, whereabouts and holiday plans on them - effectively an invitation to a burglar.

Sugar Curbs Urged

The American Heart Association is taking aim at the nation's sweet tooth, urging consumers to significantly cut back on the amount of sugar they get from such foods as soft drinks, cookies and ice cream.

In a scientific statement issued Monday, the organization says most women should limit their sugar intake to 100 calories, or about six teaspoons, a day; for men, the recommendation is 150 calories, or nine teaspoons.

The recommendations are likely to prove challenging for many consumers to meet. Just one 12-ounce can of cola has about 130 calories, or eight teaspoons of sugar.

Half of health workers reject swine flu shot

About half of Hong Kong's health workers would refuse the swine flu vaccine, new research says, a trend that experts say would likely apply worldwide. In a study that polled 2,255 Hong Kong health workers this year, researchers found even during the height of global swine flu panic in May, less than half were willing to get vaccinated.

Most said they would pass on the swine flu shot, which is not yet available, because they were afraid of side effects and doubted how safe and effective it would be.
