We Are In The Test Tube

Okay- you’re tired of combatting those who say that anthropogenic climate change is a farce. You’ve had it up to your eyeballs trying to get the naysayers past the “Al Gore factor” in the climate debate.

More Bizarro World Government - the EPA Protecting Industry From Environmentalists

One of the things I detest most about this administration and its Rovian politics (if I believed in Hell, I’d be sure Karl Rove was headed there) is the Orwellian way they twist so many things into their opposites - like the AIDS virus that subverts the very cells in the immune system that are […]

A Toggle Switch for Sexual Preference?

“The biggest environmental crime in history”

Rewiring the Brain

New research indicates that a molecule called complexin regulates the flow of neurotransmitters in the synapse of the brain.  Without this chemical our neurons would fire continuously.  Who cares???  Well: 
“So what does this mean in terms of neurological diseases? The activity of complexin can be controlled, and if properly regulated, may allow synaptic growth to […]
