The Truth About The Right’s Latest Benghazi Attacks. Is it not just Fox News, as one would expect, but ABC and CBS have joined in on echoing completely spurious versions of reality. CBS “reporter” Sharyl Attkisson has previously proven she is in the bag, pushing conservative talking points rather than the truth, and receiving a Conservative award for doing so.

Cops Beat Woman For Filming Another Beating. “You want to film something b**ch? Film this!” This despite the well known fact that police may be photographed or filmed while on duty. The city of Baltimore – and it’s tax payers are going to be paying out quite a bit of money for these bad apples.

Cancer drug prevents build-up of toxic brain protein

Researchers at Georgetown University Medical Center have used tiny doses of a leukemia drug to halt accumulation of toxic proteins linked to Parkinson’s disease in the brains of mice. This finding provides the basis to plan a clinical trial in humans to study the effects.

They say their study, published online May 10 in Human Molecular Genetics, offers a unique and exciting strategy to treat neurodegenerative diseases that feature abnormal buildup of proteins in Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), frontotemporal dementia, Huntington disease and Lewy body dementia, among others.

Nilotinib is normally used to treat chronic myelogenous leukemia. Though they found that in low doses it also clears the garbage proteins, preventing their accumulation in pathological inclusions called Lewy bodies  and also prevents amyloid secretion into the extracellular space between neurons. Thus those proteins do not form toxic clumps or plaques in the brain.
