FDA warns dieters: Stop Hydroxycut use immediately...

WASHINGTON DC – Government health officials warned dieters and body builders Friday to immediately stop using Hydroxycut, a widely sold supplement linked to cases of serious liver damage and at least one death.
The Food and Drug Administration said the maker of the dietary supplement has agreed to recall 14 Hydroxycut products. Available in grocery stores and pharmacies, Hydroxycut is advertised as made from natural ingredients. At least 9 million packages were sold last year, the FDA said.
Dr. Linda Katz of the FDA's food and nutrition division said the agency has received 23 reports of liver problems, including the death of a 19-year-old boy living in the Southwest. The teenager died in 2007, and the death was reported to the FDA this March.
Other patients experienced symptoms ranging from jaundice, or yellowing of the skin, to liver failure. One received a transplant and another was placed on a list to await a new liver.
There was no immediate comment from the U.S. distributor of the diet pill, Iovate Health Sciences, headquartered near Buffalo, N.Y. Made by a Canadian company, Hydroxycut is used by people trying to shed pounds and by body builders to sharpen their muscles.
Dietary supplements aren't as tightly regulated by the government as medications. Manufacturers don't need to prove to the FDA that their products are safe and effective before they can sell them to consumers. But regulators monitor aftermarket reports for signs of trouble, and in recent years companies have been put under stricter requirements to alert the FDA when they learn of problems.
Katz said it has taken so long to get a handle on the Hydroxycut problem because the cases of liver damage were rare and the FDA has no authority to review supplements before they're marketed. "Part of the problem is that the FDA looks at dietary supplements from a post-market perspective, and an isolated incident is often difficult to follow," she said.
The FDA relies on voluntary reports to detect such problems, and many cases are never reported, officials acknowledge.
Health officials said they have been unable to determine which Hydroxycut ingredients are potentially toxic, partially because the formulation of the products has changed several times. A medical journal report last month raised questions about one ingredient, hydroxycitric acid, derived from a tropical fruit. The article said it could potentially damage the liver.

Anchor Babies

Constitutionally their is no written statue, giving legal status to children born on US soil from foreign visitors, travelers, or illegals. The practice by INS has been to automatically grant the children legal status not because they were born on US soil but because the US government does not want to appear as Nazi like nation. Technically the US constitution does not state that children born in the US of foreign parents should be given citizenship. The INS laws that cover immigration are very clear, If you are here on a VISA for travel or for business, If you are hear on a Passport for business or school and you find your self pregnant and give birth on US soil, those children will have US citizenship available to them. That does not mean you now have to leave your child hear when you go back to your country. You can decide to pursue legal status for your child to have dual citizen ship once the child is of legal age that child can initiate the process to petition legalization of the parents to become U.S. citizens. This does not mean the laws can be broken to be hear in the U.S. illegally and have children born hear believing that this actions will give the parents citizenship. Two totally different scenarios. There is no need for Immigration Reform the laws are very clear, all that needs to be done is for the laws to be enforced and the American traitors who wish to distort the law need to be lined up and SHOT IN A PUBLIC SQUARE AND PLAYED BACK ON NATIONAL NEWS OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER TO SHOW WHAT HAPPENS TO AMERICAN TRAITORS WHO DO NOT DEFEND AND PROTECT THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES. EVERY COUNTRY HAS LAWS TO ESTABLISH PROCESS AND ORDER TO USURP U.S. LAWS IS A FORM OF TREASON AND PUNISHABLE BY EXECUTION THOSE LAWS ARE ALSO WRITTEN AND LEGAL STATUTE.


Treason- sedition mean disloyalty or treachery to one's country or its government
The offense of acting to overthrow one's government or to harm or kill its sovereign.
Treason is any attempt to overthrow the government or impair the well-being of a state to which one owes allegiance
The crime of giving aid or comfort to the enemies of one's government.
A violation of allegiance to one's sovereign or to one's state.

TREASON - This word imports a betraying, treachery, or breach of allegiance.
The Constitution of the United States, Art. III, defines treason against the United States to consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid or comfort. This offense is punished with death. By the same article of the Constitution, no person shall be convicted of treason, unless on the testimony of two witnesses to the same overt act, or on confession in open court.

"I do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."

I think I can find at minimum 6 million more witnesses to appear in court.

A Genetic Clue to Why Autism Affects Boys More.....

Among the many mysteries that befuddle autism researchers: why the disorder affects boys four times more often than girls. But in new findings reported online today by the journal Molecular Psychiatry, researchers say they have found a genetic clue that may help explain the disparity.
The newly discovered autism-risk gene, identified by authors as CACNA1G, is more common in boys than in girls (why that's so is still not clear), and the authors suggest it plays a role in boys' increased risk of the developmental disorder. CACNA1G, which sits on chromosome 17, amid other genes that have been previously linked to autism, is responsible for regulating the flow of calcium into and out of cells. Nerve cells in the brain rely on calcium to become activated, and research suggests that imbalances in the mineral can result in the overstimulation of neural connections and create developmental problems, such as autism and even epilepsy, which is also a common feature of autism.
"Our current theories about autism suggest that the disorder is related to overexcitability at nerve endings," says Geri Dawson, chief science officer of Autism Speaks, an advocacy group that provided the genetic data used by the study's authors. "It's interesting to see that the gene they identified appears to modulate excitability of neurons."
For the new study, researchers at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), combed the genetic database of the Autism Genetic Resource Exchange (AGRE), a resource of DNA from 2,000 families with at least one autistic child. The scientists focused on the more than 1,000 genetic samples of families in which at least one son was affected by the disorder, prompted by the results of an earlier study using the same database, which identified a rich autism-related genetic region on chromosome 17 that contained genetic variants more common in boys than in girls. While nearly 40% of the general population has the most common form of CACNA1G, one variant of the gene was more prevalent in autistic boys, researchers found. "There is a strong genetic signal in this region," says Dr. Daniel Geschwind, director of UCLA's Center for Autism Research and Treatment and one of the study's co-authors. "But this gene doesn't explain all of that signal or even half of it. What that means is that there are many more genes in this region contributing to autism."
That's not surprising for a disorder as complex as autism actually, a spectrum of developmental disorders involving impairment in language, social behavior and certain physical behaviors with symptoms that range widely in number and severity. So far, studies have linked a handful of genes, all of which play a role in the way nerve cells connect and communicate, with autism spectrum disorders. It's likely not only that a large number of genes contribute to the disorder, but also that a different combination of genes as well as unique interactions between genes and environment are responsible for each individual case of autism.
So it's certainly a daunting challenge to begin teasing out the individual genes that may contribute to autism, as the UCLA team has with CACNA1G, but databases like AGRE make the job slightly easier. The next step will be to try to use known autism genes to help develop screening tools or early interventions. "We are going to have a much better understanding of the causes of autism over the next five to 10 years," says Dawson. "We're in a period of great discovery."

Craigslist CEO sues over SC's prosecution threat

COLUMBIA, S.C. – Craigslist's chief executive is suing South Carolina's attorney general, claiming the prosecutor's threat to file prostitution charges against the San Francisco company is unreasonable.
CEO Jim Buckmaster says on his blog he wants a restraining order to keep Attorney General Henry McMaster from pursuing criminal charges.
McMaster said last week he would prosecute Craigslist executives for aiding and abetting prostitution if an ad on the site leads to a prostitution case in South Carolina. McMaster has said his office is investigating, but no charges have been brought.
In a statement, McMaster says the lawsuit shows Craigslist is taking his investigation seriously and called it a victory. The lawsuit was filed late Tuesday night in a federal court in South Carolina

screw yahoo email said...

Here is a comment feedback message I just sent to Yahoo, I suggest everyone who has Yahoo Email send them one....

Many people including everyone in my household have had Yahoo email for years. Now we are being inundated with some jackass constantly asking for us to update our private info and provide our cellphone number - are you people insane?
Look who ever is running your email account service, fire their worthless ass.
You are driving people away from Yahoo Email.
There are plenty of email providers out there.
I bet your advertisers won't be very happy losing customers.
Get a life people.
Get a reality check, you need us, we do not need you!

Yahoo Sucks said...

I agree with the previous poster, Yahoo Email sucks!

I just sent them this FEEDBACK Message, join us, send them one now!

Here's and idea take your email and shove it.
I have had Yahoo email for 18-months.
I am NOT giving anyone my phone number.
I don't need to enhance or change anything on my account.
Whoever came up with this idea is a jackass - fire them now!
You should try and do something with the same people who SPAM Yahoo email accounts 100 times even though they are marked as SPAM.
My 10-year-old can program better than the monkey's you have!

P.S. I have changed to email - no hassle, no fuss, no problems!

No such thing as "deleted" on the Internet

It's always fun to write about research that you can actually try out for yourself.

Try this: Take a photo and upload it to Facebook, then after a day or so, note what the URL to the picture is (the actual photo, not the page on which the photo resides), and then delete it. Come back a month later and see if the link works. Chances are: It will not!

Facebook isn't alone here. Researchers at Cambridge University (so you know this is legit, people!) have found that nearly half of the social networking sites don't immediately delete pictures when a user requests they be removed. In general, photo-centric websites like Flickr were found to be better at quickly removing deleted photos upon request.

Why do "deleted" photos stick around so long? The problem relates to the way data is stored on large websites: While your personal computer only keeps one copy of a file, large-scale services like Facebook rely on what are called content delivery networks to manage data and distribution. It's a complex system wherein data is copied to multiple intermediate devices, usually to speed up access to files when millions of people are trying to access the service simultaneously. (Yahoo! Tech is served by dozens of servers, for example.) But because changes aren't reflected across the CDN immediately, ghost copies of files tend to linger for days or weeks.

In the case of Facebook, the company says data may hang around until the URL in question is reused, which is usually "after a short period of time." Though obviously that time can vary considerably.

Of course, once a photo escapes from the walled garden of a social network like Facebook, the chances of deleting it permanently fall even further. Google's caching system is remarkably efficient at archiving copies of web content, long after it's removed from the web. Anyone who's ever used Google Image Search can likely tell you a story about clicking on a thumbnail image, only to find that the image has been deleted from the website in question -- yet the thumbnail remains on Google for months. And then there are services like the Wayback Machine, which copy entire websites for posterity, archiving data and pictures forever.

The lesson: Those drunken party photos you don't want people to see? Simply don't upload them to the web, ever, because trying to delete them after you sober up is a tough proposition.

Analysis: Obama debating Cheney is a plus for GOP

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. – In political debate, the side that keeps its arguments simple and repeats them again and again is likely to gain the advantage. It is an easier sale, especially when the topic is as scary as terrorism.
That's how Republicans got the edge in the dispute over President Barack Obama's planned closing of the Guantanamo Bay prison. And it put former Vice President Dick Cheney on a separate but almost equal platform with the president of the United States, which is a plus any time the party out of power can manage it.
Their back-to-back speeches on Thursday gave Cheney "a lot of credibility" and put Obama on the defensive, said Republican pollster David Winston.
"From a political standpoint, I think Cheney wins on points," said GOP strategist Rich Galen. Long-term, the former vice president's premier role may have a downside for the Republicans, given his 25 percent approval rating and his status as the most unpopular top figure in an unpopular administration. But Galen said that at this point, "It's either Cheney or who else. There's no who else, so you take Cheney."
In the Guantanamo argument, Obama's critics didn't worry about legalities, court decisions or complexities. They invented an argument about letting terrorists move next door to Americans.
Although no one had ever suggested such a thing, it worked, and the Democratic Senate voted overwhelmingly to deny Obama an $80 million appropriation to close the prison camp by eight months from now, as he had promised. Now Democratic leaders are saying that if Obama will come up with a plan on what to do with the prisoners there are about 240 of them they might agree.
