Bridging tumor moats with potent drug delivery particles

Bridging tumor moats with potent drug delivery particles
Despite herculean efforts, cancer remains a formidable disease, with each malignant subtype responding differently to therapeutics. One hurdle specific to treating solid tumors is a protective layer called an extracellular matrix that can prevent chemotherapeutic agents from penetrating the tumor’s core. Scientists now report results in ACS’ Chemistry of Materials showing that, by cloaking anti-cancer drugs in a specially designed particle, they could target and destroy tumor cells deep inside a malignant mass in vitro.

‘Sniffing’ out counterfeit liquors

'Sniffing' out counterfeit liquors
Watered-down or fake liquors can reap financial rewards for nefarious individuals, but the adulteration of liquor cheats consumers and can even lead to health hazards from added contaminants. Scientists now report in ACS Sensors a portable device with an advanced sensor array that can identify liquors and determine if they’d been altered, offering a strategy for liquor quality assurance.

VIDEO: Trump orders CNN's grandstanding clown Jim Acosta out of Oval Office
Trump was actually pretty chill about it, and he didn’t take Acosta’s bait. He didn’t yell, and you have to listen rather closely to hear him say, “Out.”

But he absolutely does, and it’s easy to figure out why:

Group Threatening to Burn ‘Activist Mommy’ Alive Doesn’t Violate Standards, Facebook Says

It’s been a bad week already for social media giants. Facebook banned conservative author Matt Margolis for advertising his book, The Scandalous Presidency of Barack Obama, in conservative groups (the ban is still active), and Twitter is under fire for “shadowbanning” conservatives and collecting sexual files on everyone. Seriously.

Facebook apparently isn’t done making itself look ridiculous. In the rush to get rid of “hate speech” and under the guise of making changes to its news feed, Facebook is making conservative groups disappear. Digiday reports:—More….

He shot them both,’ defense lawyer says of illegal immigrant accused of killing two cops

There’s never been much dispute over whether Luis Bracamontes shot and killed two Sacramento-area deputies in October 2014.

He has repeatedly admitted to it in court hearings, and at the start of his trial Tuesday his own lawyer essentially convicted the illegal immigrant of killing Sacramento sheriff’s Deputy Danny Oliver and Placer sheriff’s Deputy Michael Davis Jr. in a daylong spree of violence that started in a Motel 6 parking lot near Arden Fair Mall.—More…

WASHINGTON — Bakers on TV are always talking about whether their goodies have enough gluten. But the masses on Twitter act like gluten is some kind of monster hiding in your bread. So what gives? Is gluten good, or is it bad? This video from Reactions explains what gluten is, how it leads to tasty bread, and the health risks it holds for certain groups of people:

22 attorneys general file legal challenge against net neutrality rollback

The petition has been brought before the US Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit and is being spearheaded by New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman.

The Antitrust Case Against Facebook, Google and Amazon

Standard Oil Co. and American Telephone and Telegraph Co. were the technological titans of their day, commanding more than 80% of their markets.

Today’s tech giants are just as dominant: In the U.S., Alphabet Inc.’s Google drives 89% of internet search; 95% of young adults on the internet use a Facebook Inc. product; and Amazon.com Inc. now accounts for 75% of electronic book sales. Those firms that aren’t monopolists are duopolists: Google and Facebook absorbed 63% of online ad spending last year; Google and Apple Inc. provide…—More…

Famous Race-Baiter Now Says That Black Criminals Are Just Whites in Masks

Tariq Nasheed, a notorious race-baiter whose delusions of grandeur regarding the alleged epidemic of racism in America make even the Rev. Al Sharpton look somewhat sane in comparison, has officially jumped the shark.

The stunning moment he finally fully detached himself from reality occurred Dec. 29, when he posted a tweet suggesting that the black criminals we sometimes see on the news — to be clear, we also see white criminals, Hispanic criminals, Asian criminals, etc. — are, in reality, white men in disguise.—More…

Ear-piercing Screams to Mark ‘The Rise of the Woman’ in Weekend’  Women’s Ma

Ear-piercing Screams to Mark ‘The Rise of the Woman’ in Weekend’  Women’s March
Harvey Weinstein-like producers of BIG FICTION are releasing a Blockbuster Movie on the 1st Anniversary of the Women’s March.  This time Linda Sarsour, Ashley Judd et all will take a back seat to millions of screeching-for-social-justice bit players schooled by the progressive left over the past year.

Their amplified message is that the angry white men who run the system have gone from suppressing women to openly sexually harassing them, egged on by President Donald Trump, picture perfect framed as the most hated leader on earth.

We’ve seen this movie and all of its myriad versions since November of 2016, but this is the movie they intend to keep running ad nauseum.  They’ll keep their blockbuster running on the big screen until there is no chance that another “nationalist”, “populist” “Xenophobe”  is ever elected leader anywhere else on the world map.

Reversing the Damage Done by Chairman Barack

Reversing the Damage Done by Chairman Barack
Friday’s March for Life, 45 years after the Supreme Court legalized abortion on demand, demonstrates how difficult it is to reverse the effects of evil decisions and policies. The fact that complete victory is not immediately at hand does not cause true believers to give up the fight. That’s why thousands will turn out for the 45th Anniversary of Roe v. Wade.

Overturning Marxist or “progressive” policies is a difficult challenge when much of the media and even some prominent members of your own political party are against you. But the economic and financial turnaround under President Trump has already been amazing. Trump’s record of appointing conservative and pro-life judges is also impressive. Some pro-lifers have declared Trump is the most pro-life president in modern history.

The new word of the week accurately describes California

The new word of the week accurately describes California
Despite so-called “progressives” promising their policies will create a Soviet-style worker’s paradise, California’s leftist Democrats have turned the once Golden State into a sh*thole through decades of leftist policies penalizing and demonizing employers, businesses, property owners, innovators, entrepreneurs—and really, anyone who wants to work hard and get ahead. These hard working people are responding by fleeing liberal California for conservative red states.

The perception across America is that California is the state people are leaving. And that perception is accurate.

U.S. developing new nuclear weapons to counter Russia, China

U.S. developing new nuclear weapons to counter Russia, China
What does the left worry about when it comes to national defense? Apparently it worries that we might have some weapons in our arsenel that it’s not impossible for us to ever use.

Find the clip if you can of Joe Scarborough during the 2016 general election campaign, freaking out because some of Donald Trump’s national security advisors said he’d asked some of his national security advisors, if we’re building nuclear weapons, why can’t we use them? To Scarborough, this was evidence of a madman. To me, it was the sort of question you ask when you want to understand the thinking of those who might soon be working for you, and the realities attached to the deadliest weapons on Earth.

Liberty Counsel Challenges CA Forced Abortion Speech Law

Liberty Counsel Challenges CA Forced Abortion Speech Law
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Liberty Counsel filed an amicus brief today in National Institute of Family and Life Advocates (NIFLA) v. Becerra, one of four cases brought before the Supreme Court by crisis pregnancy centers challenging the law as a violation of the First Amendment guarantees of free speech and free exercise of religion.

The Supreme Court has agreed to review the California Reproductive FACT Act, which compels pro-life crisis pregnancy centers to post notices regarding the availability of free and low-cost abortions in their physical clinics, printed material and online. The Court agreed to review the NIFLA case on the limited question of “whether the disclosures required by the California Reproductive FACT Act violate the protections set forth in the Free Speech Clause of the First Amendment, applicable to the States through the Fourteenth Amendment.”
