The study has not yet been peer-reviewed, and “We need to see it confirmed and replicated in a larger and more diverse population.” I understand the public information process, and how research is now more and more embedded in the cycle of news, but my feeling is that it is "a tad" premature to even make headlines... There are so many fears and (still) unsubstantiated hopes around dementia, and families who have gone and are going through this devastating illness deserve more solid information and help to rationalize their hopes . That being said, I will be happy to register as one of the next segments of the study participants...:-}

Tough situation on both sides. Researchers: remain rational when fighting for funding and mindshare. Not easy. Livelihood at stake. Families: remain rational when trying to save grandma. Not easy. Beloved personality at stake.

It's hard impossible to make sense of another massacre of innocent people.

But that’s not important right now, because there is footage of the US state department spokesman learning live on air that Boris Johnson has been appointed foreign secretary. Considering that Mark Toner’s Washington training is likely to have included the administering of electric shocks should he fail to maintain a poker face, it’s a tribute to the sheer WTF-ery of the Johnson appointment this guy can't keep the smirk or the radioactive disdain off his face

Marina Hyde, The Guardian. 
Mark Toner can’t keep a straight face when he is asked about the news that the Brexiteer will become the UK’s foreign secretary

Putting my own comments on hold until the conversation on skilled workers visa programs is more defined
Unlikely to pass in the near future, a newly introduced bill aims to bring attention to problems with H-1B and L-1 visa programs

Biology textbooks tell us that lichens are alliances between two organisms—a fungus and an alga. They are wrong.

An admirable gesture to help women that have been deserted by justice. 11,300 abandoned and untested rape kits it's shameful and outrageous.
Erykah Badu has announced plans to donate a large portion of the proceeds from her concert at Detroit’s Chene Park Amphitheater on August 12 to the African American 490 Challenge, an organization seeking to test the remainder of the 11,300 untested rape kits that were found abandoned in a Detroit police station in 2009.

" ... But, uh, I'm a sheep-pig ... " (Babe, 1995)
Introduction
"You are not making any sense! "
"I don't have to! I'm Italian! "
(Rock Hudson and Gina Lollobrigida in: "Come September ", 1961)
------------------------------​-------

"When I heard the learn'd astronomer
When the proofs, the figures, were ranged in columns before me,
When I was shown the charts and diagrams, to add, divide, and measure them,
When I sitting heard the astronomer where he lectured with
Much applause in the lecture room,
How soon unaccountable I became tired and sick,
Till rising and gliding out I'd wander'd off by myself,
In the mystical moist night-air, and from time to time,
Look'd up in perfect silence at the stars."
(Walt Whitman)
------------------------------​----------

"That's my secret Cap, I'm always angry."
(Bruce Banner, The Avengers.)

The second best part of science is knowing, just for a little while, something nobody else knows. The best part is sharing it with someone.
