Who Will Tell Michael J. Fox He Needs to Die?
07/29/2009  •  American Spectator 
"If they would rather die they had better do it, and decrease the surplus population." -- Ebenezer Scrooge in A Christmas Carol Should Michael J. Fox be put to death? Celebrities and death. Now there's a potent cocktail. Several parts fame, a few jiggers of Hollywood and a splash each for sports, business and journalism. Did I mention politics and government bureaucracy? Sorry. Without that essential element the mixture has no wallop. And a wallop this concoction surely will have, particularly if you believe actor Michael J. Fox has overstayed his welcome on the planet. Let's pour the dry ingredients of politics and government bureaucracy into the pitcher first, beginning with the politics of death and dying.  Read Full Story

Mythbusters Tackle 911
07-29-2009  •  Douglas Herman 

Armed with a brand new batch of clever inventions and one eye-popping scale model, the intrepid team of Mythbusters decided to test a 911conspiracy theory, that the WTC towers collapsed by controlled demolition.

"We wanted to prove the conspiracy wackos wrong," said the intrepid duo, Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage. "And of course score some big bucks by blowing things up."

According to the New York Times, Mythbusters "may be the best science program on television." Throughout scores of entertaining episodes, the dynamic duo of Savage and Hyneman patiently construct scale models and then smash them, crush them, burn them or blow them up.

"Or blow them down," said Savage, cracking a grin. "All in the name of science."

According to millions of 911 conspiracy theorists, who believe the World Trade Towers collapsed by carefully rigged explosives, the govern&a  Read Full Story

We are spending a lot of money subsidizing the insurance companies around something called Medicare Advantage, a program that gives them subsidies to accept Medicare recipients but doesn’t necessarily make people on Medicare healthier. And if we eliminate that and other programs, we can potentially save $200 billion out of the health care system. More  Read Full Story

Short-term Treasuries fall after 5-year auction

Short-term Treasury prices fell Wednesday, sending their yields higher, after a disappointing auction of $39 billion in five-year notes. The auction's bid-to-cover ratio, a measure of demand, dropped to 1.92 percent from 2.58 percent at an auction of five-year notes in June. Indirect bids, an indication of foreign buying, tumbled to 37 percent of the total bids accepted, compared with 63 percent in June. "It's hard to describe it as anything but ugly," said Michael Pond, an interest rate strategist at Barclays Capital. "The market is beginning to choke on the increases in supply."  Read Full Story

It is possible though that we evolved into organisms that have out stripped our ability to produce stem cells. In short we simply have metabolisms that operate far to fast to be able to replace all the damage as needed unlike the above mentioned reptiles. Thus creating a mechanism that takes up the slack may be a way to bring the human aging cycle under control and restore the possibility of biological immortality to humanity.  Read Full Story

Startup GreenRay Solar is getting funding to develop this kind of technology, so that one day a homeowner can buy a solar panel and pretty much install it him/herself. Right now, you usually have to be a licensed electrician to do the electrical work needed to install conventional panels. But GreenRay’s panels would be a lot simpler, because they bypass the inverter step. It still might not be as easy as plugging in an appliance, but it would bring PV installation down a couple notches, within the reach of aspiring DIY-ers  Read Full Story

Bashing Goldman Sachs Is Simply a Game for Fools: Michael Lewis
07/29/2009  •  Bloomberg 
From the moment I left Yale and started working for Goldman Sachs, I’ve felt uneasy interacting with those who don’t. Today, the sheer volume of irresponsible media commentary has forced us to reconsider our public-relations strategy. With every uptick in our share price it’s grown clearer that we who are inside Goldman Sachs must open a dialogue with you who are not. Not for our benefit, but for yours. America stands at a crossroads, and Goldman Sachs now owns both of them. In choosing which road to take, ordinary Americans must not be distracted by unproductive resentment toward the toll-takers. To that end we at Goldman Sachs would like to dispel several false and insidious rumors.  Read Full Story
