People aren't fat, Ryan. They are weight challenged. And did you ever stop to think that your own challenges with weight are climate related? If it were hotter here in Canada, then you'd be outside more and sweat more and burn off that extra weight. Now, Trudeau with his carbon tax wants to take that opportunity for heathfulness away from you, that scoundrel!

Climate control and weight control. Have to admit that's a new perspective I've never heard of before. :o

Saw this on PBS last night. It would be wonderful if biomarkers could be discovered to diagnose or help diagnose PTSD. A lot of people would be helped with this.

Can science make diagnosing PTSD less of an ordeal?

DR. SAM MCLEAN: The blood is such a valuable tool to use to better understand what’s going on with post-traumatic stress, because, after traumatic event, the brain communicates with the body via the blood.

Love the last line, sort of reminds me of in cancer therapy "the goal is to be able to cure all cancers with this new drug". :D

The goal is to produce large-scale cells eventually and then move the technology over to manufacturers who will develop it commercially.


Goals and reasonable timelines sometimes don't see "eye to eye". 8)

I really do wonder how solid the science is with burying nuclear waste at the Bruce plant in the ground, well I suppose in this case it would actually be in solid limestone rock that is not porous from what they say or very little porous. :?

Town divided over plan to store nuclear waste near Lake Huron

A moment of reckoning has come for Canada’s nuclear industry and millions of people who rely on the power source to keep their lights on.
For over 40 years, nuclear reactors in three provinces have pulsed with energy created by powerful fission reactions and it’s created a complex problem: what do you do with radioactive waste that stays lethal for 100,000 years?
Ontario Power Generation (OPG) is the company responsible for managing waste produced by Ontario’s three nuclear plants – Darlington, Pickering and Bruce.
They say the answer lies in the sleepy community of Kincardine, Ont., where the world’s largest operating nuclear plant, Bruce Nuclear Generating Station, is located.
OPG proposes building a Deep Geologic Repository (DGR): a crypt 680 metres below ground in Canadian Shield limestone that scientists say hasn’t moved in 450 million years and is well below the water table.
It also happens to be 1.2 kilometres from the shores of Lake Huron

For sure dawg, seems to be a very potentially at least, huge money maker. And let's face it, without it being seen as able to make money, not much will happen, just like drug companies with drugs that could be quite beneficial for some diseases but not very profitable therefore the drug companies don't invest in the new drug as much.

But it's early research so it seems with this, give it a bit of time maybe.

Just what we all needed, a 'new' species of giant, wandering spider:
