Today’s Birthday: RITA LEVI-MONTALCINI (1909)

Rita Levi-Montalcini (1909)

A dual citizen of Italy and the US, Levi-Montalcini did her most important work with American biochemist Stanley Cohen. Studying mouse tumors implanted in chicken embryos, the pair isolated a nerve-growth factor in 1952, the first of many cell-growth factors found in animals. For this discovery, they were awarded the 1986 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine. In 2001, she was made a “senator for life” in the Italian senate. In what unusual place did Levi-Montalcini build her first laboratory? More… Discuss


In late 1999, 5-year-old Elián González and his mother left Cuba on a boat with a dozen other people seeking asylum in the US. Elián’s mother and several others died during the voyage, and Elián was found on an inner tube by fishermen off the coast of Florida. He was released into the custody of his uncle in Miami, but his father in Cuba pressed for his return. The custody dispute ended in an armed raid on the Miami house, and Elián returned to Cuba with his father. What has he said since? More… Discuss


Anti-Social Media on the Rise

The Disney adage “if you can’t say something nice, don’t say nothing at all” apparently has one exception—the Internet. People are becoming increasingly rude on social media, apparently finding it easier to say nasty things online than in person, and the fallout from online feuds is spilling over into real life. Nearly 20 percent of people have blocked, unsubscribed, or unfriended someone because of a virtual spat, and an equal number has reduced face-to-face contact with a person because of something said online. More… Discuss

Photography Reanimator – My videos check it out on You Tube!

Published on Apr 21, 2013

Editing tools, make interesting effects: This set of photos, for instance have been saved with Sketch effect, on a standard Videolan Application. I like the look which reminds me of nice film-animation movies from the past…such as “Juno”, for example. The depersonalization of images, has the effect of standing out and when complemented by appropriate music, can become a unforgettable event: Afterall it what we’re trying to accomplish in the end, creating an unforgettable moment!

New Zealand penguins, other birds after oil disaster

Dear Kitty. Some blog

This video says about itself:

Nov 21, 2011

The first 60 penguins have been released from the Wildlife Recovery Centre at Mt Maunganui beach this afternoon.

The little blue penguins have had their feathers cleaned and been given a clean bill of health, after turning up coated in oil following the grounding and subsequent oil spill of the container ship Rena.

Maritime New Zealand on scene commander Alex van Wijngaarden says the release of the first birds has been keenly anticipated by the entire oil spill response team.

“We’re thrilled to have reached the point where we can begin releasing these birds back into the wild, where they belong.”

Before being released each bird has to pass blood tests and the “six hour test” – where they swim for six hours without a break to test their waterproofing, says oiled wildlife response team coordinator Kerri Morgan.

Each bird has…

ABBA – Gimme Gimme Gimme(live in Wembley, 1979)

De N-aţ Fost În Ardial, Apăi Să Mereţ !!!

cau ca trubuie!

Viaţa prin ochi de femeie

Dragi turişti, capitalişti

De n-aţi fost vreodată aici

Io vă spun că-i tare fain

În Ardeal îi ca în Rai.

În Ardeal….apăi se ştie,

Oamenii-s de omenie,

De le treci pragu’ vreodată

Ei îţi umple masa toată…

Cu pălincă şi cu clisă …

Şi cu uşa larg deschisă,

Tot ce au mai bun în casă

Ei îţi pun direct pe masă.

De la masă nu-ndrăzni

Ca să pleci când ti grăbi,

Cât e masa încărcată

Cu plăcinte şi de toate

Şi pălinca-i   încă- n iagă

Să nu zici că tu ai treabă,

Că se supără ardeleanu’

De nu îi trece tot anu’.

Că pălinca cea de prune,

Doar o ştie-ntreaga lume

Este marcă-nregistrată

De Ardeal revendicată.

Elixirul tinereţii

Bucuria dimineţii ,

Este leac adevărat

De la moşi, strămoşi lăsat.

De e zi de sărbătoare …

Se ştie, piroşca-i

Tare bună învârtită

În curechi şi-acoperită

Cu groştior adevărat

Chiar în casă…

Fed Up With the Fed

What’s your is mine…but what’s mine is only mine……HIHIHIHIHIHIHIHIHIHIHI



Respectfully submitted by Lawrence E. Rafferty (rafflaw)-Guest Blogger

In the past few weeks, I have written about how the FDIC along with the Bank of England had developed a plan to allow the Big banks to grab depositors funds  in order to bail out those very same big banks.  Since that article was written, I have reviewed just what role the Federal Reserve Bank plays and how can it be improved.  You may remember the role the Federal Reserve played in bailing out the Big Banks during the beginning of the Great Recession.

“As a result of the Government Accountability Office (GAO) audit of the Fed, Senate sponsor Bernie Sanders of Vermont said, “We now know that the Federal Reserve provided more than $16 trillion in total financial assistance to some of the largest financial institutions and corporations in the United States and throughout the world.” Among the investigation’s…

DENVER (AP) — Authorities are hunting for suspects after shooting broke out during a massive marijuana celebration in Denver, leaving two people with gunshot wounds.

The gunfire scattered thousands attending Saturday’s 4/20 counterculture holiday, the first since Colorado legalized marijuana.

A man and a woman each suffered non-life threatening gunshot wounds, officials said. Local media reports said a third person was grazed.

There  is  quite a  big  difference  between  presenting  evidence  that  is  pertinent  to the  case.  Evidence  that  might   give  some  clue  as  to the  reasoning  behind  such an act.  Now  I  may  be  way  off  base  here  ,  but  what in the  hell  does   this  woman  having  been arrested  for  shoplifting  have anything to do with what  her  sons  are  accused  of  doing?

Immigrants are not  the only  ones  who may  be  guilty  of  shoplifting….Plenty  of  American  born   people that  have never  even  been to  another  country   much less be  involved with  a terrorist  plot are  arrested on a  daily  basis   for  shoplifting  from  Stores  all over  America. 

So  what   the  hell is the  point  of  this?  

Haven’t  these  people  been  through  enough? 

Last  I checked   even if their  sons  are   guilty it  does not  make  them   guilty  by  association. 

Or  will they …
