Kleiners Korner. Pottermore: Coming Soon. Dem Congressman tells unions that they “need to get out on the streets and get a little bloody” Posted at 9:30 am on February 23, 2011 by Ed Morrissey Gee, I seem to recall when violent rhetoric was the bane of political rhetoric, at least when the Left was shrieking about the latent, seething violence of Tea Party activists and Sarah Palin’s campaign maps.

Dem Congressman tells unions that they “need to get out on the streets and get a little bloody”

The media did a dog-pile on the Right when a lunatic in Tucson shot Democratic Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, spending the better part of a week scrutinizing Palin’s utterances and campaign artwork when the shooter’s schizophrenia was known well enough within hours of the massacre that killed six and wounded 14. Now one of Giffords’ Democratic caucus colleagues tells a union crowd that they need to go out and “get bloody,” while pointing out Tea Party counterprotesters across the street: A Democratic Congressman from Massachusetts is raising the stakes in the nation’s fight over the future of public employee unions, saying emails aren’t enough to show support and that it is time to “get a little bloody.” But don’t worry.

Conventional wisdom of how neurons operate challenged: Axons can work in reverse. Neurons are complicated, but the basic functional concept is that synapses transmit electrical signals to the dendrites and cell body (input), and axons carry signals away (output).

Conventional wisdom of how neurons operate challenged: Axons can work in reverse

In one of many surprise findings, Northwestern University scientists have discovered that axons can operate in reverse: they can send signals to the cell body, too. It also turns out axons can talk to each other. Before sending signals in reverse, axons can perform their own neural computations without any involvement from the cell body or dendrites.

This is contrary to typical neuronal communication where an axon of one neuron is in contact with another neuron's dendrite or cell body, not its axon. And, unlike the computations performed in dendrites, the computations occurring in axons are thousands of times slower, potentially creating a means for neurons to compute fast things in dendrites and slow things in axons. American Thinker: President Stealth Strikes Again. How Obama and his merry band are trying to evade the will of the people The people spoke in November when they delivered a shellacking to Democrats and Barack Obama.

American Thinker: President Stealth Strikes Again

They had grabbed too much power in ways that ran afoul of tradition, the law, and the will of the people. In electing so many Republicans to office, Americans wanted a course change from the radicalism of the past two years: the regulatory avalanche, the policy missteps, the ObamaCare overreach. Have President Obama and his merry band of followers read the memo yet?

The people have had it with the tricks and sly maneuvers used by Democrats to push their agenda on America. They know the game book of the Republicans -- what their plans are to circumscribe Obama's power-grab, to minimize the damage from ObamaCare and massive and wasteful deficits.

American Thinker Blog: Lib journos summoned to secret WH meeting

Fenig When you can't get the news from objective, neutral, unbiased reporters you've got to get it where you can. So even in deep blue New York there are some isolated pockets of diversity, albeit in some unusual places, which offer news not available elsewhere, including news about the people who report the news but don't want news about them in the news.

Got that? The New York Post's celebrity gossip, er names in the news, columnist Cindy Adams informs us about them in her own brittle New York style. O summons journosYou don't know this, because few know this because it's secret because nobody wants anybody to know this because who knows why? As far as known, at this moment, Adams has no news about White House requests to learn from Fox News contributors or even a sampling from American Thinker scribblers. Oh well. Michelle Malkin. NASA's Fermi catches thunderstorms hurling antimatter into space. Scientists using NASA's Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope have detected beams of antimatter produced above thunderstorms on Earth -- a phenomenon never seen before.

NASA's Fermi catches thunderstorms hurling antimatter into space

Scientists think the antimatter particles were formed in a terrestrial gamma-ray flash (TGF), a brief burst produced inside thunderstorms and shown to be associated with lightning. It is estimated that about 500 TGFs occur daily worldwide, but most go undetected. "These signals are the first direct evidence that thunderstorms make antimatter particle beams," said Michael Briggs, a member of Fermi's Gamma-ray Burst Monitor (GBM) team at the University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH). He presented the findings January 11, during a news briefing at the American Astronomical Society meeting in Seattle.

Fermi is designed to monitor gamma rays, the highest energy form of light. Although Fermi's GBM is designed to observe high-energy events in the universe, it's also providing valuable insights into this strange phenomenon. A scrumptious life.
