Truth,Responsibility and The Average Joe

AN157  It seems it may be time for mankind to take responsibility for all we have done. No longer are we allowed to make mistakes over and over and claim ignorance. We are a Intelligent species in general and we are more than aware of the damage and destruction we leave in our wake. All for progress, convenience  and greed we lay waste to the natural resources and to the earth. The Child called man is a child no more and we should act as the adults we are instead of trying to hide behind excuses and misdirecting lies and partial truths. Both the Governments and news media throw so much spin on the truth you never know what is true or what is hype. Misdirection is the philosophy of modern politics and News agencies. Very few ever tell us all the facts only pieces of of the facts out there to keep us from knowing the whole truth. I am not going to go into conspiracy theories or big brother ideology, I am just stating there is very few if any in the news media and in government that i would trust. There may be a few whom we could trust, I just haven’t found one as of yet that tells nothing but the truth. I probably will never find one in my lifetime and I find it sad that is a truth i must face.

  The politicians, news media, religious leaders and corporations of the world should be held accountable for their actions and words. If they can not keep their word and are negligent then they should be impeached, fired and or ran out of town. Its pretty sad when the average Joe in America who barely makes above minimum wage has to bail out the banks, financial giants, airlines and the auto companies via taxes. And soon we will indirectly pay for the B.P. oil disaster thanks to the raising of the oil disaster relief fund the congress is trying to pass. But still no National Healthcare for us who can not afford it. I would rather my taxes pay to heal someone than bail out companies that are failing due to the greed and or negligence of their C.E.O.’s. And these same companies are hiring more and more people overseas to work cheap and that takes money and jobs from Americans.

Enough Ranting for now


Scientists grow a rat lung in the laboratory

It’s an early step toward one day building new lungs: Yale University researchers took apart and regrew a rat’s lung, and then transplanted it and watched it breathe.

The lung stayed in place only for an hour or two, as the scientists measured it exchanging oxygen and carbon dioxide much like a regular lung _ but also spotted some problems that will take more research to fix.

Still, the work is a step in the science fiction-sounding hunt for ways to regenerate damaged lungs _ although lead researcher Dr. Laura Niklason cautions that it may be 20 or 25 years before a build-a-new-organ approach is ready for people.

The work was reported online Thursday in the journal Science.

More than 2M cribs recalled amid safety concerns

baby_with_stuffed_bear The Consumer Product Safety Commission says most of the cribs are drop-sides, which have a side rail that moves up and down so parents can lift children from them more easily. That movable side can malfunction or detach from the crib and create a dangerous gap where babies’ heads can become trapped.
The companies involved in the recall are Evenflo, Delta Enterprises Corp., Child Craft, Jardine Enterprises, LaJobi, Million Dollar Baby and Simmons Juvenile Products Inc.
There are reports of at least 16 infants becoming trapped in the cribs.
