re: 50 Fox News lies in 6 seconds - Elephino
I might have missed it, but I didn't see Bret Baier or Shepherd Smith in any of those clips (or any of the other hard news reporters). So he pulled "lies" from opinion and political commentary shows from individuals with a clear political bias?...

re: Addium??? - Elephino
I don't know anything about the supplement itself, but a quick search shows it contains Huperzine A, which was/is being studied for Alzheimer's disease. You mention DMAE and acetylcholine. Well, Huperzine A is an AChE inhibitor that crosses the BBB. In theory, it would have an activity profile sim...

re: Federal Judge Weighs Whether U.S. Marijuana Law Is Unconstiutional - Elephino
That might be part of the strategy for keeping it illegal. When Merck launched lovastatin (mevacor), which is the active statin in red yeast rice, it was ruled that genuine red yeast rice supplements with lovastatin contained an FDA approved drug being dispensed without prescription (something alon...

re: Federal Judge Weighs Whether U.S. Marijuana Law Is Unconstiutional - Elephino
I haven't kept up (not my research area), but plant-derived was supposed to be rescheduled. In pure form, like isomers of THC are chemically indistinguishable. Whereas, crack being considered the same chemical entity as cocaine HCl is not accurate. There is a reason crack is preferred for smoking...

re: Federal Judge Weighs Whether U.S. Marijuana Law Is Unconstiutional - Elephino
Not exactly. Crack is the free base of cocaine, which permeates cell membranes much more efficiently than the ionized cocaine HCl (the medically used form). This is also going to be a sticking point with weed legalization. Marijuana in its plant form is illegal and contains multiple chemical comp...

re: Early test for Jeb Bush: Terri Schiavo fiasco back in news - Elephino
This isn't exactly accurate either (though, I'm not arguing right to life). She was absent cerebral function, which means no consciousness, pain sensation, etc. She was not on a vent. Her eyes were open and she could blink (all involuntary functions). It wasn't as simple a case as "pulling the pl...

re: How long does Mucinex fast max take liquid to start working? - Elephino
Mucinex as a brand product is a waste of time because the recommended dose and bilayer (extended release) tablet doses are too low. You can take up to 2400 mg of guaifenesin a day. Buy the generic walgreens tablets in 400 mg (immediate release). Take 800 mg every 8 hr or 1200 every 12 hr. It also on...

re: My Wife Has Been Diagnosed with Lupus - Elephino
My wife was diagnosed a couple of years ago. What Ace said is mostly accurate. Everyone presents differently, different severity, and progression. In my wife's case, she has frequent pain in her hands. Periodically, she complains of pain in her chest like a squeezing sensation. She does not take...

re: The white racist cop was gonna shoo...oh, wait, he had a bodycam...NEVAMIND - Elephino
The firefighter didn't lie? Having your hand on your gun at the ready position is not even close to "about to pull the trigger". The firefighter claims he asked if his kids could put their hands down and tell them it's ok. Never happened. The cop tells the children it's alright...twice. a responsibl...

re: (Science Board) Post-doctoral researchers are invisible - but not oppressed. - Elephino
I did my PhD within a Health Science Center (only graduate and professional degrees) and never had to teach undergrad labs or lectures. My stipend was justified because I taught pharmaceutical compounding lab, which was a necessary and beneficial skill for me. I was on an industrial track. My pos...

re: (Science Board) Post-doctoral researchers are invisible - but not oppressed. - Elephino
My best advice to someone seeking a PhD in one of the basic sciences (maybe except physics, sorry, not being a dick) would be to pursue one associated with a professional degree program. For example, pathophysiology, biochemistry, cellular/molecular genetics obtained in the respective department at...

re: 5th Circuit in NOLA tosses injunction. Texas abortion clinics to close. - Elephino
Actually, based on personal experience, a physician at a religious-affiliated hospital can tell you that your unborn child has a lethal condition, will not survive outside the womb, continuing the pregnancy is a risk to your wife due to complications, and should be terminated...now please go to anot...

re: 5th Circuit in NOLA tosses injunction. Texas abortion clinics to close. - Elephino
Dr. / patient confidentiality doesn't seem like a reasonable argument. We still have laws against physician-assisted suicide, which is a private decision. I guess what I'm getting is the inconsistency of laws and how they are applied. For example, California law states - [quote]187. (a) Murder i...

re: 5th Circuit in NOLA tosses injunction. Texas abortion clinics to close. - Elephino
So they actually did argue on the terms of a "constitutional right to terminate a pregnancy"? So what article or amendment is this right being associated? Again, not being an ass. I'm just trying to rationalize a ruling such as this with the number of fetal homicide laws that exist in nearly 40 s...
