Aids Vaccine Found in Thailand?

Probably the most under reported subject in all of main stream media. Hopefully this is good news, but who will get access to this drug is the real story if ever made available.  More below:

Picture 6BANGKOK – For the first time, an experimental vaccine has prevented infection with the AIDS virus, a watershed event in the deadly epidemic and a surprising result. Recent failures led many scientists to think such a vaccine might never be possible.

The vaccine cut the risk of becoming infected with HIV by more than 31 percent in the world’s largest AIDS vaccine trial of more than 16,000 volunteers in Thailand, researchers announced Thursday in Bangkok.

Even though the benefit is modest, “it’s the first evidence that we could have a safe and effective preventive vaccine,” Col. Jerome Kim said in a telephone interview. He helped lead the study for the U.S. Army, which sponsored it with the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.

The institute’s director, Dr. Anthony Fauci, warned that this is “not the end of the road,” but said he was surprised and very pleased by the outcome.

“It gives me cautious optimism about the possibility of improving this result” and developing a more effective AIDS vaccine, Fauci said in a telephone interview. “This is something that we can do.”

Even a marginally helpful vaccine could have a big impact. Every day, 7,500 people worldwide are newly infected with HIV; 2 million died of AIDS in 2007, the U.N. agency UNAIDS estimates.

“Today marks an historic milestone,” said Mitchell Warren, executive director of the AIDS Vaccine Advocacy Coalition, an international group that has worked toward developing a vaccine.

“It will take time and resources to fully analyze and understand the data, but there is little doubt that this finding will energize and redirect the AIDS vaccine field,” he said in a statement.

Russian Gazillionaire Wants To Buy The Nets, Will Front Money For Brooklyn Stadium

Wonder if he is a Jay Z fan also? This project has been in limbo for years and time is running out and I still don’t think this gonna happen.

Picture 7MOSCOW (Reuters) – Russia’s richest man, Mikhail Prokhorov, has made a takeover bid for major U.S. basketball team the New Jersey Nets, the tycoon confirmed on his blog on Tuesday.

Former nickel baron Prokhorov boasts that if his move is successful, it would be the first time a National Basketball Association (NBA) club comes under foreign control.

Prokhorov’s proposals, sent to existing Nets shareholders at the weekend, would see his Onexim group provide a loan to build a substantial part of a new arena, according to a post on his website, md-prokhorov.livejournal.com.

Onexim would also receive a controlling stake of the NBA team for a “symbolic” price, the post said. Sources close to the billionaire have previously estimated the overall value of any deal at $700 million.

“For our Onexim group the realization of this very lucrative business project, whose participation was made possible by the world crisis (never in history have foreigners owned an NBA club), is another interesting sports development,” Prokhorov wrote.

DETROIT – Eminem‘s music publisher wants a bigger slice from Apple.

Eight Mile Style LLC and a co-plaintiff, Martin Affiliated LLC, are suing Apple Inc., claiming they never authorized the use of 93 songs in a downloadable format on Apple’s popular iTunes service.

The non-jury trial is expected to start Thursday in the rapper’s hometown of Detroit, unless a settlement is reached Wednesday with the help of U.S. Magistrate Judge Virginia Morgan.

Eight Mile also is suing Aftermath Records, which controls the recordings in question, saying it didn’t have the right to make deals on digital downloads.

Scientist says we will live forever in 20 years

Picture 13
Ray Kurzweil claims we could all be cyborgs in 20 years.

The 61-year-old American, who has predicted new technologies arriving before, says our understanding of genes and computer technology is accelerating at an incredible rate.

He says theoretically, at the rate our understanding is increasing, nanotechnologies capable of replacing many of our vital organs could be available in 20 years time.

Kurzweil calls his theory the Law of Accelerating Returns. Writing in The Sun, Mr Kurzweil said: “I and many other scientists now believe that in around 20 years we will have the means to reprogramme our bodies’ stone-age software so we can halt, then reverse, ageing. Then nanotechnology will let us live for ever.

“Ultimately, nanobots will replace blood cells and do their work thousands of times more effectively.

“Within 25 years we will be able to do an Olympic sprint for 15 minutes without taking a breath, or go scuba-diving for four hours without oxygen.

WTF? Idaho Teacher Ashley Jo Beach Caught in Bushes with 13-Year-Old

Do I even need to say anything about the ‘Hot For Teacher’ phenomenon? This chick was pretty bold in where she wanted to do the do. More below:
Picture 16via True Crime

Officers in Meridian, Idaho received a call at 9:30 p.m. Thursday concerning something suspicious happening in some bushes not far from the town middle school. That’s when they found science and math teacher Ashley Jo Beach laying down with a 13-year-old student.

Their stories didn’t quite match, and it is rather hard for a 37-year-old teacher to explain what she’s doing in the bushes with a little kid. Now she’s been charged with having an affair with the student since April.

According to court records, the odd couple apparently had been having sex at school. They’d also sent each other pictures of their privates. Beach is charged with lewd contact with a child under 16.

[Op-Ed] Bush Hatred, Obama Hatred

Picture 12via The Daily Dish

A reader writes:

After September 11th, Bush’s approval ratings were near or above 90%. Practically the entire country was behind him – saluting and ready for duty. Yes, the Left did try to derail his plans for Iraq – but they failed. And when millions (actual millions) of Americans came out to protest that war – – it was largely ignored by the media. But when 70,000 lunatics came to DC last week to protest “Government Spending” (which, let’s be honest, is a euphemism for “Barack Hussein Obama”) – they got massive amounts of media coverage and hours of pundit commentary.

Every tea-party rally has been aggressively championed, and all-but-sponsored, by cable-news giant FOX. CODE PINK was almost completely ignored (which, as a liberal, I’m kinda glad about — but I still stand behind my larger point). A couple went to a Bush rally wearing anti-Bush T-Shirts and got arrested. Guys standing outside Obama rallies openly carry guns and get interviewed by the media.

The heaviest hitters in the Republican party, and in the conservative media have loudly and proudly called for Obama’s failure. Liberals who even softly criticized Bush were roundly shamed and called terrorist-loving-America-haters. George W. Bush, despite the controversial beginning of his presidency, was given the chance – – no, in fact, after 9/11, he was given all the unopposed freedom in the world to succeed or fail based upon his own decisions and his own performance. Bush EARNED his hatred.

Obama has not had that luxury.

He also does not have the luxury of the Clinton inheritance. He was left with a steaming pile of doo-doo and a debt already in the stratosphere. And yet they also blame him for that.

Hofstra Student Lied About Gang Rape, Sex Was Consenual (Charges Dropped)

They were getting ready to hang these young men from the rafters. They still have this stigma over them for years to come and she needs to be arrested immediately.

HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. (AP) — Authorities in New York say the Hofstra University student who told police that she had been gang-raped by five men on campus has recanted her story.

Nassau County District Attorney Kathleen Rice said in a statement released late Wednesday that the 18-year-old told law enforcement officials that the sex was consensual.

Rice says Nassau County Judge Robert Bruno then dismissed the charges against four of the men and ordered their release.

The woman had accused the men, including a Hofstra student, of taking her cell phone at an on-campus nightclub and luring her into a dormitory men’s room and sexually assaulting her early Sunday.

Four of them, Rondell Bedward, Jesus Ortiz, Kevin Taveras and Stalin Felipe, were arrested and arraigned on rape and other charges.

Video Emerges of Obama Calling Kanye West a ‘Jackass’`

I thought that this assessment was brilliant in that our President is a calculating genius and we have yet to see his best moves. Checkmate Fox News.

via Business Insider

Lost in the huge media fracas about how President Obama called Kanye West a “jackass” and whether ABC should have reported it and whether ABC’s groveling apology would restore its access to precious Obama scoops is the observation that Obama played this brilliantly.

To wit:

  • Obama is way too smart not to know that calling Kanye West a jackass on a live feed monitored by several rabidly competitive reporters would not get reported by someone. Continue reading
