Trump Blames Obama For His Policy Of Keeping Children In Cages: Whenever President Trump needs a distraction from real news he starts tweeting about his favorite topics: Barack Obama, Democrats, and the Russia investigation “witch hunt.”  So that’s what he did Saturday morning as part of a tweetstorm where he combined his normal lunacy with his typical self-promotion. And none of it made much sense. For … Continue reading "Trump Blames Obama For His Policy Of Keeping Children In Cages" The post Trump Blames Obama For His Policy Of Keeping Children In Cages appeared first on POLITICUSUSA.

Microsoft to use Windows 10-focused Snapdragon 1000 chip for foldable Surface Phone? - According to a report out of Germany, Microsoft and Qualcomm are working together on the ARM based SDM1000 chip (Snapdragon 1000?) that is designed to work on more powerful Windows notebooks and 2-in-1 devices. In other words, this could be the chip that drives the foldable Surface Phone device that we've seen in patent sketches and renders. The SDM1000 would compete against Intel's Y and U processor seri...

I don’t support refusing to serve someone because of their politics. I also don’t consider lying and distributing propaganda supporting racists, misogynists, and fascists to be political. That’s just sociopathy.

Caffeine from four cups of coffee protects the heart with the help of mitochondria

Caffeine consumption has been associated with lower risks for multiple diseases, including type II diabetes, heart disease, and stroke, but the mechanism underlying these protective effects has been unclear. A new study now shows that caffeine promotes the movement of a regulatory protein into mitochondria, enhancing their function and protecting cardiovascular cells from damage. The work, publishing 21 June in the open access journal PLOS Biology, by Judith Haendeler and Joachim Altschmied of the Medical Faculty, Heinrich-Heine-University and the IUF-Leibniz Research Institute for Environmental Medicine in Duesseldorf, Germany, and colleagues, found that the protective effect was reached at a concentration equivalent to consumption of four cups of coffee, suggesting the effect may be physiologically relevant. The authors have previously shown that at physiologically relevant concentrations (i.e. levels reached after four or more cups of coffee) caffeine improved the functional capacity of endothelial cells, which line the interior of blood vessels, and that the effect involved mitochondria, the cell's energy powerhouses.

A hidden gem in Norway's Arctic

After several hours of hiking, the evening was coming to a close, and I had not managed to reach my destination of this elusive beach I had managed to find out about. White sand, clear waters, backed by rugged peaks that rise straight out of the ocean. Waters that you'd expect to find in the tropics, in Norway's far north. Incredible. So I immediately picked up the pace and made sure I got to where I needed to be.

Finally reaching the destination I was absolutely amazed by it's seclusion, and how everything I had heard about it, was true. I was all alone looking at this beauty. A bizarre, yet eerie feeling.

As the weather started to close in, the light started to fade, and I had several hours hike back over rough terrain. I had no mobile phone, no gear to spend the night, so I had to get a move on. Reaching a nearby ridge to cross the mountains, snow started falling from the sky, and sleet hitting me hard in the face as the wind picked up. With only a jacket, I would never be able to survive the night, so I did my shoes and backpack up extra tight, and started running over the mountain and down the other side. As careful as I was, I ended up injuring my knee. Something that could have been fatal several kilometres earlier. But I managed to hobble out over the next couple of hours in the darkness to where the car was. I made it out, and even though physically shattered, I was so happy!

This was my last hike for the 3 months we had in the Arctic (Iceland and Norway). So the knee injury was worth it :-P

The news that Donald #Trump and Vladimir #Putin are preparing to meet in Europe next month has been causing consternation among those keen to keep the temperature of the new #ColdWar close to freezing point.

But these voices should be ignored, as a summit is just what is needed at the present time.

“Meeting jaw to jaw is better than war,” Winston Churchill famously observed. Which sane person, desirous of world peace, could possibly disagree with the sentiment?

Yet, it seems that some people in the corridors of power in the West and in neocon think-tanks are seriously alarmed by the prospect of the presidents of the US and Russia getting together for a tete-a-tete and possibly defusing current tensions.
