    Vaping is not good for vascular function

    We tried prohibition of alcohol and it solved nonething, only caused problems. That's why it's legal.

    Vaping is not good for vascular function

    Vaping has urgent funding for studies behind it because of its increased popularity, mostly among younger people, partly caused by the claim that is a much healthier alternative to cigs. So studies are needed to determine if that is even true.

    You've got to admire David Bowie.
    He has released at least 30 CD's / DVD's since his death.

    Russia probes II -- The Mueller Report

    Yes. Pointing out the anti-Semitism rampant in the Democratic party will win him votes. Or, at least, cause votes to be lost by the other side. People that didn't vote in the last election. Motivating voters, that's what it is - although I'm sure he didn't do it for that reason. Harte

    Vaping is not good for vascular function

    Are cigarette sales dropping? What is the motive behind funding all these e-smoke "studies" that are suddenly coming out of the woodwork? Yeah, inhaling anything but clean air isn't healthy - common sense tells us that. Breathing in brake dust and car exhaust while waiting at a red light is worse than just about anything as brake dust is a known carcinogen yet I don't see a huge rush to recall brake pads for safer versions. These e-cig studies reek of industry bias, IMO.

    The Funeral of Fr. James

    That was very moving.
  8. "The army is recruiting poor teenagers in its most dangerous roles because it cannot find adults to fill vacancies, a campaign group warned last night. "Almost 30 per cent of last year's new recruits were aged 16 or 17, the most in any year since the financial year ending 2011." Full report at the Daily Mail: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7381649/Army-bosses-recruiting-poor-teenagers-dangerous-roles-lack-adults-signing-up.html "Data compiled by the Child Rights International Network (CRIN) shows that the army recruited 1,000 16-year-olds and 820 17-year-olds last year, with the youngsters more likely to come from poorer areas. "The UK is the only country in Europe which routinely recruits people aged under 18, and Charlotte Cooper, campaigns coordinator with CRIN, told The Guardian: “The army is leaning on teenagers from the most deprived backgrounds to fix its recruitment crisis, using them to fill the riskiest roles because it can’t persuade enough adults to enlist.”" Full report at the UK Telegraph: https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2019/08/21/british-army-accused-leaning-under-18s-order-plug-recruitment/

    Should all British police officers be armed?

    Yeah that's a dumb rule for Police to have to follow. If you can effectively stop a threat, why wait until the bullets are flying at you? The first shot may be the last one you won't ever hear.

    Should all British police officers be armed?

    It seems unarmed Officers are almost a point of pride among the tea-drinking islanders. As in, it's worth being proud that your country is so peaceful it's unnecessary to arm the Cops. However, this isn't 2005. This is 2019 and the demographics of the UK are changing rapidly. There are a thousand videos out there of UK Police being gang beaten, having cars stolen, or the worst ones involve 110 lb female Officers getting pummeled while the partner helplessly screams in to his or her radio. "Officers assaulted during routine traffic stop" "Two female officers attacked by crazed man" "Police Officer attacked with sledge hammer in Glossop" There is plenty of footage of American Police being overrun or beaten but even then, there is only so much damage the attackers are willing to do at risk of their own lives. For Police in England, what is the "plan B" for a gang of youths who know you don't carry any lethal force? I hope the governing bodies take the advice of the Officers on the ground when it comes to carrying firearms. Nothing worse than your fate being decided by fat bureaucrats who likely will never step foot in the neighborhoods you have to patrol.

  12. For the most part from what I understand is that it denotes status and in some parts of S.America it identified ststus and location as the type of headbinding varied from region to region. For Attila the children of conquered elite who swore alliegence had their heads bound so as to show their status to him. I am on my phone now but will look in my fplders for links when I get to the computer. jmccr8
  13. I think that effect is caused by the long exposure time of the single frames. The nearer the craft comes, the bigger and brighter it appear and more light get captured by the cam, per frame.

    Yep, them too.

    Biotech firm successfully creates male kitten

    Even if they successfully cloned the pet memories and all, it's still not the same pet. It's just a copy. Same goes for people. It would be someone who thinks they are somebody who's dead.

    I am more worried about the illiberal unintelligentsia who want to ban anyone and everything because they have decided someone they have never met might be offended ...

    Biotech firm successfully creates male kitten

    Cloning animals that have gone extinct, I can understand the reasoning behind that. Cloning a deceased pet doesn't quite feel right, not to me anyway, and no offence meant to any animal lovers who would go in for this procedure.

    You need to do some research.

    You don't agree with what? That paedophilia means a sexual interest in pre-pubescent children?

    Iran has seized a British oil tanker

    Looks like Iran is ratcheting up the stakes here. link August 22, 2019 12:15 PM The Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps' ground forces kicked off a "massive" set of war drills Thursday as the country unveiled its own homemade version of Russia's advanced S-300 missile defense system in yet another showing of Tehran's growing readiness for a possible war. … Iranian military leaders say the system is even more advanced than its Russian counterpart and can detect 60 targets simultaneously while engaging six of them at once. "The system is much more powerful than the Russian S-300 and some of its features could be compared with S-400," Iran's state-controlled Fars News Agency reported, referring to the even more advanced Russian version of the missile system.
  23. Yeah, small plane or helicopter seems pretty likely. The flash at the end is 'interesting' though.

    Epstein found Dead in Jail

    It seems a researcher at MIT is going to resign because of the institutions ties with Epstein. A professor from MIT was also named by Giuffre as one of her abusers. https://www.bostonglobe.com/metro/2019/08/20/mit-more-fallout-from-epstein-ties/2xNSQTkullsjQzfPcVSgjJ/story.html
