A document describing Egypt’s sudden downfall is suspiciously similar to the Exodus account.
“What’s going on with Fox by the way? What’s going on there?” Trump asked. “They’re putting on more Democrats than you have Republicans, something very strange is going on at Fox folks, something very strange.”
The Plain Truth is that Fox News has become an anti-Trump liberal never Trumper network with few exceptions ! The pro Queer world we live in today refuses to out the abominations to God's Law!
INDIANAPOLIS – IndyCar has tapped into a new industry for sponsorships.
Arrow Schmidt Peterson Motorsports on Thursday announced its partnership with DEFY – a CBD-based sports performance drink co-founded by Pro Football Hall of Famer Terrell Davis – at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The product’s name is displayed on James Hinchliffe’s No. 5 and Marcus Ericsson’s No. 7 Hondas.
Early 17th-century England, Simon Forman and Richard Napier became well known for their apparent ability to diagnose and cure medical ailments -- from delirium and depression to gonorrhea and "bloody flux" -- by studying the positions of planets and stars.
Reams of their handwritten notes on 80,000 cases survived, but filled with cryptic scribbles, mysterious astral symbols and prescriptions for curious treatments involving tobacco and horse dung, they'd be hard for most people to decipher.
That changed on Thursday. To mark a decade of the University of Cambridge's Casebook Project, aimed at digitizing one of the largest surviving sets of private medical records in history, researchers released transcriptions of their 500 favorite cases online, put into accessible English for anyone to browse.
There are many treasures to be found here. Joan Broadbrok, 40, has a throbbing headache and "thinks her children to be rats & mice." Edward Cleaver's worrisome ill thoughts ("kisse myne arse") may stem from the witchery of a neighbor who suckled a puppy.
The project "opens a wormhole into the grubby and enigmatic world of 17th-century medicine, magic and the occult," Professor Lauren Kassell of Cambridge's History and Philosophy of Science Department and one of the project's leads, said in a statement.
"Channeled through the astrologers' pens are fragments of the health and fertility concerns, bewitchment fears and sexual desires from thousands of lives otherwise lost to history."
Indeed, the transcribed cases, which include patients' names, ages, locations, occupations and symptoms, offer a fascinating and sometimes sordid snapshot into the afflictions of patients from infants to seniors living hundreds of years ago.
The language in the cases reflects another era (28-year-old John Wilkingson, for example, was most unfortunate to have "a rapier in his privy parts," aka venereal disease, while Ellen Mariot, 25, experienced a "swimming in her head & did swoon"). But many of the ailments are the same ones that bring patients into the offices of doctors and therapists today: colds, fevers, chest pain, headaches, miscarriages, broken bones, dog bites, insomnia, anxiety, heartbreak and unhappy marriages.
Reads the case of one Elizabeth Church, 46: "Was much troubled in her mind for one that she had loved long & ago who is now married & she meeting him of late told him that if her old husband dies that then she will marry him, but she meant it not as she told me because that his wife is living. Her husband is 80 years old & does whip her & scourge her black & blue egged on by his child." MORE
Pioneering methods are being developed to find traces of tumours quickly in small blood samples...
About seven years ago, researchers at the US DNA sequencing company Illumina started to notice something odd. A new blood test it ran on 125,000 expectant mothers looking for genetic abnormalities such as Down’s syndrome in their foetuses returned some extremely unexpected signals in 10 cases. Chillingly, it dawned on them that the abnormal DNA they were seeing wasn’t from the foetuses but was, rather, undiagnosed cancer in the mothers. Cancers of different types were later confirmed in all 10. “This was not a test developed for cancer screening,” says Alex Aravanis, then Illumina’s senior R&D director. “But it was evidence that it might be possible.”
In 2016, Illumina created Silicon Valley-based spin-off company Grail, with Aravanis as chief scientific officer. Backed by more than $1.5bn in funding, including money from Microsoft cofounder Bill Gates and Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, Grail is on a quest to detect multiple types of cancer before symptoms, via a single, simple blood test. The test looks at cell-free plasma to find fragments of so-called circulating tumour DNA (ctDNA) sloughed off by cancer cells. Detecting cancer sooner – before symptoms – means you can intervene earlier and people are less likely to die. While doctors can screen for breast, colon and lung cancer, most varieties of the disease can only be detected after symptoms appear.
To date, there is one company offering a blood test based on ctDNA for early cancer detection: Epigenomics began offering its test for colon cancer in 2016 based on detecting biochemical modification of a single gene.
From the Park Hyatt in New York to the Bulgari in London: The world's best hotel rooms for 2019 revealed
They are the hotel rooms that are, according to the inspectors - 'perfect'. Forbes Travel Guide has unveiled its list of the world's best hotel rooms for 2019 - and they all received maximum marks. Undercover reviewers stayed at hundreds of properties across the globe assessing them on comfort, convenience, cleanliness and maintenance. And according to Forbes, those on the best-of list have 'rooms and bathrooms that are not only beautiful, but exceptionally comfortable, functional and elegantly appointed with special touches such as high-quality linens, an array of luxurious bath amenities and well-designed technology'. Pictured clockwise from top left: The Wynn Macau; Bulgari Hotel London; The Encore Macau and the Park Hyatt New York.
A new blood test for breast cancer created by the Olivia Newton-John Cancer Research Institute could be set to replace current screening methods.
The test developed in Melbourne will be used to screen 18,000 Australian women diagnosed with cancer each year to see if their disease has returned.
It was developed by Associate Professor Alexander Dobrovic and works by checking for DNA specifically related to tumours in the patient's blood. MORE
A $39,000 shopping spree, trips to Italy on a private jet and $13,800 in rent for a summer intern: NRA chief Wayne LaPierre's 'half a MILLION dollar expenses' are laid bare in leaked letters just two weeks after a bid to oust him failed
LaPierre is coming under increasing scrutiny after he was reinstated as CEO. He was challenged by former NRA President Oliver North, who stepped down. Now documents, posted anonymously online, appear to show how LaPierre billed Ackerman McQueen Inc, the group's ad agency for thousands of dollars. They provide new details of the clothing, travel and expenses totaling $542,000. He said to have spent $39k at the Zegna store in Beverly Hills, CA on one day. They also appear to show the NRA racked up $24 million in legal bills. The leaked letters, which appear to be genuine, were sent last month by the organization's then-President Oliver North to the NRA's board. 'It is troubling and pathetic that some people would resort to leaking information to advance their agendas', NRA's new president says.
Second World War pilot, 98, known as the 'Candy Bomber' returns to Berlin with a hero's welcome, 70 years after he dropped tiny parachutes loaded with sweets to starving children during the Soviet blockade
A former U.S. Air Force pilot famous for dropping candy to starving children during the Berlin Airlift of 1948 and 1949 has returned to the German capital as a guest of honor 70 years after the end of the crisis (left). Gail Halvorsen, 98, received a hero's welcome as he donned his military uniform, signed autographs, and posed for photos with city residents on Saturday (right). Halvorsen became known as the 'Candy Bomber' after inventing the idea to airdrop small bags of sweets to children in West Berlin, who were going hungry after the Soviet Union blocked railway, road and canal access to the city (inset).
Mother’s Day is a holiday honoring motherhood that is observed in different forms throughout the world. In the United States, Mother’s Day 2019 occurs on Sunday, May 12. The American incarnation of Mother’s Day was created by Anna Jarvis in 1908 and became an official U.S. holiday in 1914. Jarvis would later denounce the holiday’s commercialization and spent the latter part of her life trying to remove it from the calendar. While dates and celebrations vary, Mother’s Day traditionally involves presenting moms with flowers, cards and other gifts.

I do not write too much about myself, but some people have asked me privately how I came to believe in God, and how I came to it. In Part 1, I explained the shock that evolution was more of a fairy tale than I thought that God was!
In spite of learning the truth about evolution, back in 1976, that didn't mean I accepted God as being real enitity, or for that matter that the Bible was even real. I was quite stubborn, and although I had stopped believing in evolution, I fought even harder against ever thinking God was real.
Facebook co-founder Chris Hughes warns in a New York Times op-ed that the power Mark Zuckerberg is “unprecedented” and un-American”.
Hughes is calling for Facebook to be broken up, but despite brazen censorship of conservatives actually believes that the platform’s algorithm has helped populist political movements.
“I’m disappointed in myself and the early Facebook team for not thinking more about how the News Feed algorithm could change our culture, influence elections and empower nationalist leaders,” wrote Hughes. MORE
Metformin - boosts the number of oxygen molecules released into a cell.
A common treatment for diabetes could enable adults to live well into their 120s, scientists say.
They will carry out the first trials on metformin next year in the hope it may stave off illnesses such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.
Researchers have already conducted tests on animals which show it significantly extends their lives.
Now the Food and Drug Administration, the American regulator, has given the go-ahead for the same trials in humans.
If successful, it would mean that, for example, a person in their 70s could have the same biological age as a healthy 50-year-old.
Professor Gordon Lithgow of the Buck Institute for Research on Ageing in California, who will lead the study, said: ‘If you target an ageing process and you slow down ageing then you slow down all the diseases and pathology of ageing as well.
‘That’s revolutionary. That’s never happened before.

The Bible records a number of resurrections to human life; I Kings 17:17-24, Luke 7:11-17, and Acts 20:9-10 are examples. The passage in Matthew 27:52-53 is the only record in the Bible of a multiple resurrection: ". . . and the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep [died] were raised; and coming out of the graves after His resurrection, they went into the holy city and appeared to many." Matthew's wording clearly describes these saints as revived to normal, physical life. Like all humans before and after them who were resurrected, they all died again.
'His intel officials appear to have been either distracted, conflicted or asleep at the switch'Former President Obama casts his ballot in 2012 election
The Russia investigation report from special counsel Robert Mueller concluded there wasn’t any collusion – at least on the part of President Donald Trump and his 2016 campaign, even though Russians did interfere.
Which raises the question of who made those allegations. Attorney General William Barr already has said he believes the Obama administration spied on the Trump campaign, and he’s investigating.
Union Pacific’s Big Boy 4014 releases steam during a ceremony at the Cheyenne Depot on Saturday, May 4, 2019.
The world’s biggest and most powerful steam locomotives is chugging to its big debut after five years of restoration work.
Big Boy No. 4014 rolled out of a Union Pacific restoration shop in Cheyenne, Wyoming, on Saturday morning as hundreds of spectators looked on. From there, it goes to Ogden, Utah, to help celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Transcontinental Railroad.
Big Boy engines hauled freight between Wyoming and Utah in the 1940s and 1950s. Of the 25 Big Boys built, eight remain, but only this one will be operational.
The Big Boy locomotive measures longer than two city buses. It’s heavier than a Boeing 747 jet plane fully loaded with passengers, yet powerful enough to pull 16 Statues of Liberty over a mountain range.
