We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
A remarkable 31 of these candidates come from the medical professions, and 24 are doctors. Too bad the Democrats aren't trying to socialize the legal industry. Then lawyers would switch to the Republicans en masse, and return the GOP to its former glory.
CAUTION! The world is a buzz with conversation about design. What is it? How does it apply to social systems? Who does design? Please read this to understand the current direction the study of design is taking.
It's unfortunate that you selected this article to address epigenetics as it lacked decent research and focused on separating the various sciences vs. uniting them in an effort to understand a very complex system...genetics, nature vs. nuture, environmental impact, etc.
When I was a biology major in a pre-med course in the early '60's at a university known for graduating excellent scientists, most of our textbooks were completely out-of-date...not bad given that break-throughs were happening so frequently that no editor could get a text out fast enough. Therefore, you did NOT miss a lecture; where else would you find out about mitochandira, named but with no identified use in the cell structure. Amazing what we have learned in 50 years.
Epigenetics requires attention and may have some serious impact on our ability to treat a variety of diseases and disfunctions. Perhaps we should spend less time dividing these areas of research and more time considering how the various "special sciences" overlap...to our benefit.
Why does this remind me of our present political system? Huge, HUGE waste of resources.
“I thought that if she has a U.S. baby, it makes her legal,” said Henderson, who testified in her own defense. “Immigration is not my expertise.”
At the time of her arrest, Henderson worked for U.S. Customs and Border Protection
Creepy thing (besides the logos) about the several AmeriCorps is how closely the whole schmear follows what we have ruefully learned only since summer 2008 about the use of induced crisis to assert power and control.
AmeriCorps, for example, is the leftwing answer to a need created by the left wing.
First the left wing destroyed the cultures and infrastructures of America's inner cities, then it came back with its own 'repair job' --including AmeriCorps, designed to 'repair' the very same young people that the very same left wing 'broke'.
Like TARP, like STIMULUS, like Cap n Trade, like ObamaCare.
All the same tactic toward a strategy, differing only in the particular tools and/or the time-frame for the executions --which in AmeriCorps' case is one or two decades, while TARP-1 and Stim --as new laws --were framed -passed -and began operations seemingly almost in days hours and minutes.
