ISRAELI SCIENTISTS 'PRINT' WORLD'S FIRST 3D HEART WITH HUMAN TISSUE A team of Tel Aviv University researchers revealed the heart, which was made using a patient’s own cells and biological materials. BY   MAAYAN JAFFE-HOFFMAN, JERUSALEM POST, APRIL 15, 2019   A team of Israeli researchers has “printed” the world’s first 3-D vascularized, engineered heart. On...
Apr 18 2:44am @4.1.1 True, I hadn't heard about any of those. (pause) which makes me wonder, why not? science advances like that are very newsworthy in my opinion. I'll have to look for a online medical journal that...
Apr 16 6:13am @4 Wow, that's some very impressive science, but I'm not s sure that's a good direction for science to be going in. I'm not trying to downplay it, it is remarkable and amazing and I hope they use it...
Hell is a slander against God, and against the victims of evil

Hell is a slander against God, and against the victims of evil


Via: Bob Nelson  •  29 comments  •  4 days ago
The money-changers had it coming because, Jesus said, they had turned a house of prayer into a den of thieves. They were profiting from others’ poverty and ripping off the poor — just the sort of thing that we would expect Jesus would find infuriating. He was angry on behalf of the poor victims, and thus he was angry at the money-changers. Christians have always wrestled with and...
Apr 13 4:47am @2 Sure there's a hell, there's gotta be a Hell, because, babycakes, there is no get out of Hell free cards despite what you may have heard. In some faiths Christ died for the ORIGINIAL SIN of Adam...
Why doesn't the U.S. use the Metric System?

Why doesn't the U.S. use the Metric System?


By: Thrawn 31  •  215 comments  •  2 days ago
No article here, just something I was thinking about.  Why doesn't the U.S. use the metric system? The "Standard System" or really "British Imperial System" is sooooooo fucking stupid. It literally makes no sense, there is absolutely no method to the madness. It is so stupid that not even Britain uses it anymore.  12 inches in a foot? What the fuck kind of increment is that? Then,...

Apr 12 10:31pm @25 Look people, it's not a assault on your measures, and it's not a rebel act to stay with the measures you know. It's just a deep fear of change, ANY change that's all. Here's the simple version....
Fox Uses Doctored Graphic To Give Trump A Fake 55% Approval Rating

Fox Uses Doctored Graphic To Give Trump A Fake 55% Approval Rating


Via: Don Overton  •  86 comments  •  yesterday
This is what Fox does and the ignorant eat it up The graphic that was shown on Fox Business makes it appear as if Trump has a 55% approval rating. The graphic cites a poll from Georgetown politics. However, an examination of the poll finds that Trump’s approval rating is not 55%. Fox News made up an approval rating that would make Trump happy. The real poll shows Trump’s disapproval...
Apr 13 12:28am @5 One of the times I watched fox "news," they had a banner running across the bottom with a "poll" question, and a number to call to vote in the poll. Is that how this one worked? fox "news" taking...
'Coal is on the way out': study finds fossil fuel now pricier than solar or wind

'Coal is on the way out': study finds fossil fuel now pricier than solar or wind


Via: Bob Nelson  •  67 comments  •  4 days ago
“Even without major policy shift we will continue to see coal retire pretty rapidly,” said Mike O’Boyle, the co-author of the report for Energy Innovation, a renewables analysis firm . “Our analysis shows that we can move a lot faster to replace coal with wind and solar. The fact that so much coal could be retired right now shows we are off the pace.” The study’s authors used...
Apr 12 11:37pm @6 Not bad thinking on Duke's part. If they have solar panel farms it'd be cheap electricity and it'll keep people buying their power on their power grids because it would be cheaper for people then...

Burma Shave Signs


By: Buzz of the Orient  •  9 comments  •  one week ago
Burma Shave Signs I'm sure that Burma Shave actually saved some lives.   People laughed and then were more careful!     It was a REAL "service" to America, even though it was an advertisement and it was one of the RARE "really useful" ones! To my “Old-As-Dirt” friends and relatives who qualify. For those who never saw any of the Burma...
Apr 11 4:39am @5 ROFL A advertising campaign run amuck. Each line was spaced about a mile apart weren't they, so there was about a minute or so before you got to read then next line? Very popular entertainment on...
'Pet Sematary' is best when it explores the destructiveness of male fragility, not zombies

'Pet Sematary' is best when it explores the destructiveness of male fragility, not zombies


Via: Perrie Halpern R.A.  •  44 comments  •  one week ago
By   Meredith Clark “Pet Sematary,” like the best Stephen King books, is frightening because it’s rooted so deeply in universal anxieties — nature’s power, grief, the destructive power of male fragility. The new movie version, directed by Kevin Kolsch and Dennis Widmeyer, works far better when it focuses on those themes rather than on violent jump scares and zombie babies. It still...
Apr 11 2:26am @3.1.8 I think that's the one..
Apr 08 7:05am @2.1.1 Just trying to make the title more attractive. Otherwise not too many people would care to read a analysis of a movie they haven't seen yet.
Apr 08 6:52am @3.1.6 LOL I'll say he missed the mark. In the book King showed the very worst parts about being a alcoholic, and the terrible effects, mentally and physically it has on them and their families and the...
Apr 08 6:30am @3.1.5 I think Kubrick was star struck with Jack Nicolson. He was a good choice because nobody can look or act crazier then he can but that's the only good choice he made with this movie. When the...
Apr 08 5:41am @5.1.6 LOL That's why I always go alone to book shop.
Apr 06 9:07am @3 I'm going to criticize the criticism of the article's author. This story should have focused on "grief" and "Male Fragility?" Really? EVERY movie has to be analyzed to the point of stupidity for...
Apr 06 7:54am @1.2.2 That seems to happen a lot with King's books and stories, he does a lot of the character's thoughts, feelings and personal experiences that don't translate into a movie very well. Also producers...
Is There Method To "the left's" Madness ?

Is There Method To "the left's" Madness ?


By: JohnRussell  •  65 comments  •  one week ago
Back in 2016 Democrats were faced with a fork in the road. Bernie Sanders, a self avowed democratic socialist was running for the party nomination on a platform of medicare for all, free college for all, a $15 per hour national minimum wage, and other "leftist" policies. The other road was the more traveled one following Hillary Clinton. At the time, many Democrats thought the more prudent...
Apr 08 8:30am @13 Tsk. I always thought the greatness of a Country had something to do with the health, education, security and general welfare of the GENERAL population as well as the economy. Silly me, I really...
Apr 08 7:22am @7.1.4 (sniff) That smells like a old, old pile of BS to me.
Apr 03 5:00pm @12.1.2 I don't think saying "I'm not trump" is enough. Just because they aren't trump doesn't mean they're not crazy I want to hear what kind of plans they want to work on, how they plan to go about it...
Apr 03 4:39pm @11.4 I actually think Bernie has a very good chance if he gets a straight shot. He seems to at least have some well thought out plans and how to bring them about and even how to pay for them. As I said...
Apr 03 4:26pm @7.1.2 You are defending the idea that a Country should have NO responsibility to aid or protect it citizens? Really?
Apr 03 4:22pm @6.4 OH NO!!!!!! VOTERS!!! The most dangerous thing in the world to conservatives! We've seen in action the ultra-conservative vision of " 'Merika." A nice Plutocratic police state, with a heavy...

Innuendo

Way back when Newsvine existed, ButtHeads Nation had a reputation as a free speech Nation where innuendo, profanity and humor were welcome.  It became one of the fastest growing Nations on the Vine.  Butt, there were also haters who constantly tried to get the Nation banned.  One of those haters, who had a stick up her butt, published an article (one paragraph) calling ButtHeads a bunch of...
Apr 08 5:27am @32 Is this a innuendo or just a blackmail attempt?
Apr 08 5:22am @31 Not to break the mood, but... There once was a man named Vargas, who started drawing scantly clad women in 1919. He made one a month for playboy from 1961 on, each drawn full page picture with a...

In order to cyberhug my sister BizEBea, I simply HAD to pay a sort of homage to her. I wanted to write or upload something that would embody the depth of her intellect; something to highlight her innate ability to embrace the dance of her mind, body, and spirit; to showcase her propensity for innuendo; and best of all, something to exhibit her quick and decisive deliverance when calling an...

Assume the Left Lies and You Will Discover the Truth: Reflections on the Trump-Russia Collusion Lie


Via: Keep America Great!  •  32 comments  •  2 weeks ago
By Dennis Prager                                                 From the beginning, I repeatedly said the charge that the Trump campaign colluded with the Russian government to defeat Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election was a lie. The president's description of it as a "witch hunt" was accurate. I regularly acknowledged that I was putting my credibility...
Apr 03 3:51pm @9.2.1 What's so bad? trump has fought to remove any penalties for Russia or it's businessmen/operatives. Even if Congress manages to put a penalty out, trump reverses it. He does that for N.K. too,...
