    It would be an extraordinary pill, but highly improbable. While Telomere lengthening problem is partly solved, it appears other factors in aging still dominate.

    Biden promissed that cancer would be cured within ten years, if he was elected President. Now that is entirely possible:


    10 years is perhaps a little too short, but the technique investigated at Stanford of using CAR-T cells to recognise proteins on the outside of cancer cells, does present a way of killing cancer cells despite there being so many different cancers.

      For those who actually believe Trump has an IQ of 160

      According to an excerpt from Bob Woodward’s Fear … the Goldman Sachs president turned National Economic Council director came away from his very first meeting with Donald Trump “astounded” by just how dumb the guy was.

      Other examples, also summed up by Levin, abound:

      Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, according to Woodward, told close associates that the president “had the understanding of ‘a fifth- or sixth-grader.'” Scott Pruitt essentially called him an imbecile “when it comes to things like the Constitution and rule of law.” Former White House deputy chief of staff Katie Walsh reportedly said working with him was “like trying to figure out what a child wants,” which feels like an insult to children. And of course, someone “purporting to represent the views” of Cohn sent an email in April 2017 describing the president as “an idiot surrounded by clowns.”


      I met Barbara through Mensa. Trump wouldn’t qualify.

        I have never doubted that you were a Mensa. You are a very successful individual from a monetary standpoint. Having known you for as long as I have I can say accurately that you are the most successful stock promoter who I have ever met in my career.

        Regarding Trump, I have an opinion, but certainly not on his intelligence. My only comment is that I highly value the opinion of CFS and also David Horowitz both of whom hold Trump in high regard.

        Bob, my positive thoughts about Trump stem exclusively from my strong disagreement with the majority of the Democrats. (more accurately called Liberals) I strongly disagree with their social views primarily those dealing with societal morals.
        I pride myself in never having lied; never cheated on a woman who I was in a relationship with and always paid every single debt that I had.

        I would bet that you also share my values.

        Mr. Moriarty, you know there is a difference between intelligence and knowledge.

        I have seen President Trump’s I.Q reported at a lowest 145, and generally between 155 and 165.
        There is little dounbt, however, some of our most intelligent Presidents were those elected shortly after our country’s independence.

        They also were also, for the most part, real servants of the country, not in it for fortunes of graft.

          As I said before, you made that up.

          I have known a lot of people who would qualify for Mensa including a few with IQs of 150-160. Trump isn’t one of them. You can listen to him speak and realize you are not dealing with a rocket scientist.

          He was elected in an unfair election where the FBI, DOJ, NSA and CIA was trying to prevent his election in addition to Clinton literally stealing votes. So he is president and no doubt a better choice than HC. But he’s a serial liar, ignorant of economics, has a total lack of empathy and no world knowledge. He is a fitting president to preside over the demise of the USA. He is owned and operated on behalf of rich Jewish donators and is playing with a hand grenade with the pin pulled.

          Iran is quite capable and willing to defend itself.

          Should they do the same thing to the US that we have done to them the banks will close two weeks after the straits close. That is the worst idea I have ever heard. When that happens the US is going to find how few friends we have.

        Compared to Biden, Obama, and Hillary, Trump is a genius, but that isn’t saying much.
        Nixon declared war on cancer nearly 50 years ago, and if anyone discovered a cure he would be “suicided” as the oncologists make too much money selling toxic chemo treatments to allow any cure to become known, unless it was even more profitable for them. Biden looks and sounds so senile that he could die any day. He will not be the nominee.

          Regarding your opinion of oncologists, they only represent a portion of those who treat cancer so I assume that you mean the entire universe of people involved in the treatment cancer. You could have a point in your comment about the profit motive involved. All I can say is that I would hope that you are not correct, but notice that I am not discounting the idea.

        (Before It’s News)

        Donald Trump is a Genius – But That’s Just His IQ!

        The most well known high IQ society is Mensa. To join Mensa one must score in the top 2% of a standardized IQ test. That really isn’t all that outstanding. One out of 50 people have IQs high enough to join Mensa.

        Numerical IQ scores are not an accurate indicator of intelligence. For instance a score of 72 on the U.S. Navy GCT test is about equal to score of 150 on the WAIS (Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale). Percentile IQ scores are a more informative measurement.

        Way back during the 2004 presidential election I wrote an article that shook up the major news networks and the New York Times. I was able to document that George Bush had a higher IQ score and better grades than John Kerry. I belong to one of those high IQ societies, and I am a psychotherapist, so I have a credible background to evaluate Mr. Trump, even though my opinions are speculative.

        Please keep in mind that IQ is a measure of intellect not character. I will comment on Donald Trump’s character later in this article.

        Donald Trump graduated from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania in 1968, with a Bachelor of Science degree in economics and anthropology. Mensa doesn’t accept SAT scores from after 1994. However Mr Trump was a student at Wharton when it was possible to derive an accurate IQ core from known SAT scores.
        Given the usual requirements for admission to a top school like Wharton, I estimate that Mr. Trump has a 156 IQ at the minimum.

        Have you looked at the Harvard and South Korean work scientifically?

        Yes there are some areas yet to go, but you doubt the Nobel prize committee, I guess.
        It did win the Nobel Prize in medicine in 2009.

        “This year’s Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine is awarded to three scientists who have solved a major problem in biology: how the chromosomes can be copied in a complete way during cell divisions and how they are protected against degradation. The Nobel Laureates have shown that the solution is to be found in the ends of the chromosomes – the telomeres – and in an enzyme that forms them – telomerase.

        The long, thread-like DNA molecules that carry our genes are packed into chromosomes, the telomeres being the caps on their ends. Elizabeth Blackburn and Jack Szostak discovered that a unique DNA sequence in the telomeres protects the chromosomes from degradation. Carol Greider and Elizabeth Blackburn identified telomerase, the enzyme that makes telomere DNA. These discoveries explained how the ends of the chromosomes are protected by the telomeres and that they are built by telomerase.

        If the telomeres are shortened, cells age. Conversely, if telomerase activity is high, telomere length is maintained, and cellular senescence is delayed. This is the case in cancer cells, which can be considered to have eternal life. Certain inherited diseases, in contrast, are characterized by a defective telomerase, resulting in damaged cells. The award of the Nobel Prize recognizes the discovery of a fundamental mechanism in the cell, a discovery that has stimulated the development of new therapeutic strategies.”

        It has tok 6 years of further research to actually make old mice young again.
        To make old mice able to have babies, etc.

        Safety trials are just beginning in humans, for which results will be out in two years, but it is indisputable that telomere lengthening has occurred for human cells grafted on to mice and in test tubes.
        Here’s a book on the subject:

    The Green New Deal is actually stupid.
    How many times has it been proven socialism/communism does not work?

    Has anyone actually calculated optimum temperature for the earth, even assuming it was possible for mankind to adjust it?
    As regards CO2 level maintenance or reduction, that again is a political meaningless boondoggle; because CO@ effects DO NOT DOMINATE CLIMATE CHANGE.

    As WaPo reported last night, the ICE operation is expected to begin on Sunday. It’s expected that 2,000 families facing deportation orders living in 10 cities with large immigrant communities, including Houston, Chicago, Miami and Los Angeles, will be arrested. President Trump first announced plans for the raids on Monday.

    ICE has been readying agents for the raids, and has been renting out hotel rooms to use as staging areas, where families will be held while they await deportation.

      But as President Trump pointed out, the people who will be apprehended in this weekend’s raid have all been ordered to leave the country – and deliberately disobeyed that order.

      The people that Ice will apprehend have already been ordered to be deported. This means that they have run from the law and run from the courts. These are people that are supposed to go back to their home country. They broke the law by coming into the country, & now by staying.

          Lawsuit Claims Aid to Nuclear Israel Illegal Under Symington Glenn Amendments
          By Editor Filed in News August 11th, 2016 @ 12:20 pm
          A lawsuit filed in federal court in Washington, D.C. claims that United States aid to Israel is illegal under a law passed in the 1970s that prohibits aid to nuclear powers that don’t sign the Nuclear Non Proliferation Treaty (NPT).

          Senator Stuart Symington
          Senator Stuart Symington

          The lawsuit was filed by Grant Smith, director of the Institute for Research: Middle East Policy (IRMEP).

          The lawsuit comes as the Obama administration is pushing to finalize a ten-year memorandum of understanding which will reportedly boost aid to Israel to $4 billion per year.

          Such aid violates longstanding bans on foreign aid to non-signatories to the Nuclear Non-proliferation Treaty (NPT) with nuclear weapons programs, the lawsuit alleges.

          Since the bans went into effect, U.S. foreign aid to Israel is estimated to be $234 billion.

          Smith says that during investigations into the illegal diversion of weapons-grade uranium from U.S. contractor NUMEC to Israel in the mid-1970s, Senators Stuart Symington and John Glenn amended the 1961 Foreign Assistance Act to ban any aid to clandestine nuclear powers that were not NPT signatories.

          Symington said at the time that “if you wish to take the dangerous and costly steps necessary to achieve a nuclear weapons option, you cannot expect the United States to help underwrite that effort indirectly or directly.”

          Smith says that both the Symington and Glenn amendments have since been watered down and now apply only to nuclear transfers after 1985.

          Smith says that the Obama administration follows precedents established since the Ford administration by ignoring internal agency and public domain information that should trigger Symington and Glenn cutoffs and waiver provisions governing foreign aid.

          In 2012 the Department of Energy under U.S. State Department authority passed a secret gag law called “Guidance on Release of Information relating to the Potential for an Israeli Nuclear Capability.”

          Smith says that measure promotes a “nuclear ambiguity” policy toward Israel.

          The primary purpose of the gag law is to unlawfully subvert Symington and Glenn arms export controls, the lawsuit alleges.

          In 2008, former President Jimmy Carter told reporters that Israel has “more than 150 nuclear weapons.”

          In reporting President Carter’s remarks, the BBC also reported that “most experts estimate that Israel has between 100 and 200 nuclear warheads, largely based on information leaked to the Sunday Times newspaper in the 1990s by Mordechai Vanunu, a former worker at the country’s Dimona nuclear reactor.”

          Smith says that the administration has three legal avenues to deal with a nuclear Israel under the Symington and Glenn amendments – either cut off foreign assistance, change the Symington and Glenn amendments to exempt Israel, or just grant a waiver.

          Such Symington and Glenn waivers have already been granted to two other countries in a similar position – Pakistan and India, Smith said.

          “But if you are Israel, and you don’t want an arms race in the Middle East, then you pretend it’s unknown that you have the weapons,” Smith said.

          Big Al says: “There don’t appear to be any easy answers here. Just the fact that the law does not seem to apply to India and/or Pakistan brings up a lot of additional issues.

          I am on the record as giving many opinions about Israel. One of these opinion is that: “yes, the country does overact, in my opinion, in some of the situations with the Arabs. I can only say about that opinion that it is based on news accounts and not personal witness.

          Bob and everyone else, I have no expert thoughts on how to solve the problems in the Middle East. One the one hand you have a group of very pissed off individuals who adhere to a religion that teaches almost the exact opposite of my Christian faith and on the other hand you have a group of people who were given land that was taken by the world thru, one could say, illegal methods. Now, the later group is trying to defend its land. Are they being too aggressive in their defense? Having never been there, i have to leave it to the “experts”

    Arizona Fire Highlights Challenges For Energy Storage
    By JONATHAN J. COOPER – Associated Press – 1 hour ago
    PHOENIX (AP) — Arizona’s largest electric company installed massive batteries near neighborhoods with a large number of solar panels, hoping to capture some of the energy from the afternoon sun to use after dark.
    Arizona Public Service has been an early adopter of battery storage technology seen as critical for the wider deployment of renewable energy and for a more resilient power grid.
    But an April fire and explosion at a massive battery west of Phoenix that sent eight firefighters and a police officer to the hospital highlighted the challenges and risks that can arise as utilities prepare for the exponential growth of the technology.
    With an investigation ongoing and no public word on the fire’s cause, the incident is being closely watched by energy storage researchers and advocates.
    “This is getting attention, and I think everyone realizes that too many safety incidents … will be detrimental going forward,” said George Crabtree, director of the Joint Center for Energy Storage Research, a partnership of national laboratories, universities and companies funded by the U.S. Energy Department. “So I think it’s being taken very seriously.”
    APS has assembled a team of engineers, safety experts and first responders to work with the utility, battery-maker Fluence and others to carefully remove and inspect the 378 modules that comprise the McMicken battery system and figure out what happened.
    APS installed the 2 megawatt battery systems at a substation in Surprise, outside Phoenix, in 2017 and another near the Festival Ranch development in nearby Buckeye. They help the utility manage fluctuations from clouds or the setting sun in areas with a large number of rooftop solar panels.
    Those batteries are tiny in comparison to the 850 megawatts that APS has pledged to build by 2025. Energy storage, and batteries in particular, are projected to take off as renewable energy prices come down and states mandate a growing share of power must come from renewables like wind and solar, which are subject to the whims of Mother Nature.
    On the current electric grid, energy is used as it’s generated; the supply and demand must match, or customers will face blackouts or power surges.
    At times, California produces so much solar energy that its utilities pay APS to take it off the grid. New solar farms are planned in Arizona and elsewhere in the West. Storing energy allows utilities to better manage peaks and valleys.
    “Absent battery storage, the whole value proposition of intermittent renewable energy makes no sense at all,” said Donald Sadoway, a battery researcher at Massachusetts Institute of Technology and co-founder of battery storage company Ambri. “People just don’t understand that the battery will do for electricity what refrigeration did to our food supply.”
    Utilities can capture solar energy in the afternoon when power is cheap, and sell it in the evening when demand and prices rise. They also can replace the need for natural gas “peaker plants” that fire up to meet peak energy demand, or delay building expensive new transmission lines.
    California and Hawaii have set goals of eliminating fossil fuels from their energy grids in the coming decades, and many states are expanding mandates for a portion of energy to come from renewable sources.
    Nearly all of the utility-scale batteries now on the grid or in development are massive versions the same lithium ion technology that powers cellphones and laptops. If the batteries get too hot, a fire can start and trigger a phenomenon known as thermal runaway, in which the fire feeds on itself and is nearly impossible to stop until it consumes all the available fuel.
    Problems with lithium ion batteries have periodically triggered fears following outbreaks of spontaneous fires in Samsung phones, hoverboards and Boeing’s 787 aircraft.
    “Anytime you store a lot of energy in a small space you’ve got to be very cognizant of the controls that you have to put in place so that energy doesn’t get out when you don’t want it to,” said Jay Apt, co-director of Carnegie Mellon University’s Electricity Industry Center.
    Researchers are working to educate firefighters on how to deal with battery fires. It was a topic of discussion at a conference this week of the National Fire Protection Association, which has developed an online training program for first responders, said Christian Dubay, the group’s vice president and chief engineer.
    “When you face a unique hazard, you need to have awareness and training for that,” Dubay said.
    The APS fire was the third involving a utility-scale battery. One was at an APS-owned battery in Flagstaff in 2012, and the other was in Hawaii.
    APS has shut down its two similar batteries while awaiting the investigation’s results, but the utility is not slowing down its plans to deploy new massive batteries, said Alan Bunnell, a company spokesman.

    On the way to Camp David Saturday, President Donald Trump updated the press on the Iran situation. The president continues his firm stance while offering to negotiate.
    Military action is “always on the table,” but president Trump added that he’s open to playing let’s make a deal with Iran. “It would bolster the country’s flagging economy.”

    “We will call it ‘Let’s make Iran great again’” Trump told reporters.
    Economic sanctions have already been effective so the administration is paving the way for even stricter ones to go into effect as early as Monday. Along with the added penalties, Trump offered to boost the Islamic Regime’s dying economy.
    Donald J. Trump
    Iran cannot have Nuclear Weapons! Under the terrible Obama plan, they would have been on their way to Nuclear in a short number of years, and existing verification is not acceptable. We are putting major additional Sanctions on Iran on Monday. I look forward to the day that…..
    11:56 AM – Jun 22, 2019
    Pundits see the move as an attempt to ratchet down tensions and let last week’s drone attack fall by the wayside. Trump posted:
    “Iran cannot have Nuclear Weapons! Under the terrible Obama plan, they would have been on their way to nuclear in a short number of years, and existing verification is not acceptable.”
    “We are putting major additional Sanctions on Iran on Monday. I look forward to the day that Sanctions come off Iran, and they become a productive and prosperous nation again.”
    Secretary of State Mike Pompeo confirms that “beyond any doubt” the U.S. Global Hawk surveillance drone was in international airspace.

    “When the Iranian regime decides to forgo violence and meet our diplomacy with diplomacy, it knows how to reach us.”
    Iran is still more interested in throwing temper tantrums than negotiating in good faith. The Ayatollah is still clinging to hopes that Europe will pressure the Americans to honor the one sided agreement that Barack Obama and John Kerry caved in on.

    As expressed by Foreign Ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi:
    “The Europeans will not be given more time beyond July 8 to save the deal.”

    Iranian lawmakers went back to their old ways on Sunday, chanting “Death to America” in the middle of an official session of parliament.

    Not only has Iran admitted shooting down the drone, they were accused of attacking two tanker ships last week in the Gulf of Oman. Before that, they were tied to assaults against United Arab Emirates tankers in May.
    President Trump could have ordered a strike in response to the drone incident but chose to ease off at the last moment. We did carry out a quiet cyber strike.

    In the immediate wake of last week’s tanker attacks, the U.S. Cyber Command:
    “Launched a retaliatory cyberstrike… against an Iranian spy group.”
    Intelligence officials note “USCC attacked the spy group.

    US Census Bureau Using Aerial Tech To Help With 2020 Count
    By RUSSELL CONTRERAS – Associated Press – Sun Jun 23, 11:22AM CDT
    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — The U.S. Census Bureau is using new high-tech tools to help get an accurate population count next year as its faces challenges tallying people of color who live in remote places and can be wary of the federal government.
    The agency is using aerial images of rural communities and hard-to-reach areas to verify addresses and determine where to send workers to ensure everyone is counted, Census Bureau Director Steven Dillingham said.
    Satellites and planes take photos, and bureau employees compare the housing captured in the images to digital maps from the last census, in 2010. It takes a fraction of the time needed by workers in the field.

    The agency has used geographic technology since 1990 but has never had access to such accurate tools from the air, said Deirdre Dalpiaz Bishop, head of the bureau’s geography division.
    That technology — known as geographic information system, or GIS — uses computers to analyze neighborhoods, land formations, rivers and other data captured by satellites or traditional mapping.
    The new technology to improve the census comes amid concerns that tribal areas and communities of color may be undercounted in the every-10-year tally that determines the amount of federal money states receive and whether they gain or lose U.S. congressional seats.
    The U.S. Supreme Court is deciding whether the Trump administration can add a citizenship question to the 2020 census, which opponents say would suppress the count of immigrants who fear revealing their status to federal officials.
    The Census Bureau also is facing criticism for planning internet and telephone questionnaires, which advocates say would be more likely to overlook rural areas without reliable communication infrastructure.
    Steven Romalewski, director of the City University of New York’s Mapping Service, said the criticism is fair but credited the Census Bureau for using its geographic and aerial technology to gather needed data about the most difficult populations to count.
    “The technology alone is no guarantee that you will have an accurate count,” said Romalewski, who is mapping “hard to count” communities ahead of the census. “But if you leverage data with satellite imagery, you have the best information before you.”
    That’s what census employees intend to do while avoiding the political battles, Dillingham said.
    “The culture of the census dictates us to be impartial,” the bureau director said during a recent trip to New Mexico, which has one of the most difficult populations to accurately count.
    The state has a sizable Native American population and the highest percentage of Hispanic residents in the nation. Bishop said the technology will especially help such areas that have struggled for accurate counts.
    Another is Mississippi’s majority-black Bolivar County, where only 59.7% of households mailed back their 2010 census questionnaire, according to CUNY’s Center for Urban Research.
    The national rate was 74% in 2010, according to a Census Bureau news release.
    The bureau began using the new imagery technology in 2013, Bishop said. Employees have been double- and triple-checking satellite images and those captured by the Department of Agriculture’s National Agriculture Imagery Program during the growing seasons in the continental U.S.
    Around 100 technicians are able to examine the entire nation with satellite and aerial images while sitting at their computers. They are assigned specific neighborhood blocks and look for growth and decline in the number of residential buildings by comparing images from 2009 to the present.
    Two hours of canvassing in the field during the 2010 census now takes less than two minutes in the office, the bureau said.
    “With that information, we can then decide to use our staff more efficiently” to knock on doors of homes that did not respond to online or phone questionnaires, Bishop said.
    The bureau gave a demonstration of the new technology at conference early this year. Employees showed how they could analyze county subdivisions on maps by looking up a certain percentage of Spanish speakers or those making a certain amount of money.

    The specific addresses pinpointed by the aerial imagery are largely kept private, but can be shared with some tribal and city governments to help create boundaries and zoning areas, Bishop said. After a certain period, the information has to be destroyed, she said.

    I listened to the first 8 minutes of opinion, without much information. Then I visited the intifada websites, which for the two stories I read through was highly biased.
    e.g. criticising unsuccessful treatment of a Gaza child with brain cancer.
    Critical because the parents were not allowed to Jerusalem.
    Expressing no gratitude from the attempt of Israel (at no cost to parents) to operate on the brain cancer….something that probably cost a quarter to half million dollars of time and resources, for free.
    The bias was incredible in what was omitted in order to be able to criticize Israel.

        I am not pro-Jewish, Irish, but I’m not anti-Jewish either.

        Why don’t you use some logic, and criticize me with logical argument?
        Did I state anything that was not factually true?

        You probably don’t notice, but I try hard to back up everything I say with a reason or a cite.
        If I state something that is not factually true, please point it out.

        Yesterday, Bob Moriarty essentially accused me of lying when I brought up Trump’s I.Q.
        I actually stated something, unfortunately without reference, because it was a summary of multiple sources. It was, however, truthful, and I dug up several references. Unfortunately, the missing upper extreme was from a Glen Beck transcript that I could not yet find.

        If I make a mistake, I am happy to be corrected, because that is how to learn.

        I know my opinions do not necessarily reflect those of the majority, but I am always open to argument. I went to school systems that relied heavily on the Socratic approach.
        The tutorial system, which has one teacher directly interacting with just one or two students, I guess, has completely gone out of existence at all but a few universities because it is horrendously expensive. It is, however, (in my opinion) without parallel in enabling quality learning.

          The reason you are missing the trees is because the forest is blocking your view.

          An IQ test is just one way of measuring something and putting a number on it. We can do exactly the same thing by simply opening our eyes and seeing for ourselves. Obviously a lot of people on chat boards seem to have never developed any ability to think for themselves, all they can do is mumble what they have heard or read. There isn’t a single solitary original thought in the bunch.

          But how many times have you handed $10.35 to pay for an $8.35 item only to find the cashier looking at the money with a dumbfounded look because they can’t work out what 8 from 10 is? And you think, “Boy is that person dumb” because they are and you can observe it all by yourself. You don’t need to sit them down and fill out an IQ test because probably they would be sitting there an hour later turning the pencil around trying to think of which end you write from.

          An ordinary person can watch and listen to someone else, and think for themselves and know if who they are dealing with is smart or stupid. Likewise, if you have ever had dealings with someone with an IQ of 160 you can figure out for yourself just what the odds are of someone you listen to being in the top 1/2 of 1 percent of intelligence.

          When I wrote Nobody Knows Anything it was to show people that they don’t need to listen to “gurus” or “experts.” (1) because there aren’t any and (2) everyone has an agenda.

          You have an agenda. It’s 100% pro Zionism and 1% pro Arab. I don’t care if you are a card carrying Mossad agent complete with a black cape or are just a useful idiot. Everything you say is biased in favor of Israel. They can do no wrong and Muslims can do no right. You can claim all day long that you are not Jewish but you have the most unlikely bias for that to be true that I have ever seen.

          Anyone with an IQ of say 120 could listen to anything Trump says and realize in five minutes that you are not listening to a rocket scientist or brain surgeon. You needed an IQ over 120 to get into flight training so everyone I ever flew with was above average in intelligence. Trump is cunning but an IQ way above genius, not a chance in the world.

          Learn to think for yourself, it’s a highly valuable skill.

          Many slave owners had children with their slaves, so many blacks have some white slave owner’s blood in them.

            “Large numbers of free Blacks owned black slaves in numbers disproportionate to their representation in society. According to the federal census of 1830, free blacks owned more than 10,000 slaves in Louisiana, Maryland, South Carolina, and Virginia. The majority of black slave-owners lived in Louisiana and planted sugar cane.”

            I toured the Sydney area, down to Bondi Beach and up the gold coast by public transport and taxis, but that wasn’t as easy as I would wish.
