CBS:Report: Scientists Find Alzheimer’s Treatment While Trying To Cure Diabetes

According to a press release from researchers at Lancaster University, a new drug being tested for diabetes patients was found to have “significantly reversed memory loss” in test subjects and is now being examined as possible treatment for neurodegenerative disorders.

The medication, known as a triple receptor drug — or “triple agonist” — reportedly works in multiple ways to protect the brain against degeneration and promote growth. Researchers say that a study of mice being given the drug found that the animals had an increased ability to learn and retain memories.

DailyMail/Dailystar:Space station set to hit Earth is packed with CANCEROUS chemicals – and may hit anywhere

* The Tiangong-1 spacecraft has been out of control since September 2016
* Experts from Aerospace Corp believe it will crash land sometime in March
* It is carrying a dangerous substance called hydrazine used in rocket fuel
* Around 10 to 40 per cent of the satellite is expected to survive re-entry

A ‘highly-toxic’ corrosive chemical could land on Earth in March when parts of an out-of-control Chinese space station crash into our planet

The takeaway for normal people is if this piece of space junk lands near you, don’t touch it. It my cause another Godzilla, but leave it alone lest you become the toxic avengers little side kick, squishy.

These are the same people that use the word “increadible”

Is the daily star reliable??

Wapo:Iran protests and death toll grow as tension rises

Six days of demonstrations have left at least 20 people dead — including nine on Tuesday — and appear driven by Iranian workers, who have clashed with security forces in locations around the country. The protesters’ chants and attacks on government buildings have broken taboos in a system that brooks little dissent.

NavyTimes:How Peter Mims spent a week hiding in a warship’s engine room

Peter Mims was a troubled sailor who wanted out of the Navy.
He had financial problems, his marriage had fallen apart and his chain of command was riding him about qualifications. He’d sought mental health counseling, but was not treated when he needed it most.

Before he disappeared from the cruiser Shiloh on June 8, Mims was known for making crazy-yet-sincere claims. Shipmates recalled him saying he had been to space, and that he could shoot fireballs out of his hands.

This is a long and twisted story that will begin to remind you of Star Trek, when Kirk was court-marshalled. But then as facts become clearer a broader story is brought out concern the cruiser Shilo.
