Scientists Report DNA Transplant :: Cientistas Realizam Transplante de DNA (ADN)

This is am little bit scaring. They transplanted DNA from one single cell organism to another. Imagine making it with a bigger species??


::


É um pouco assustador. Eles transplantaram DNA de um organismo unicelular para outro, fazendo o segundo "trocar" sua espécie pela espécie do doador.


Imagine se resolvem fazer isso com espécies maiores ou mesmo seres humanos?


Scientists Report DNA Transplant


Organisms Adopt Donor Traits

Scientists said yesterday that they had transplanted a microbe's entire, tangled mass of DNA into a closely related organism, a delicate operation that cleanly transformed the recipient from one species into the other.


After the operations, the "patients" -- single-celled organisms resembling bacteria -- dutifully obeyed their new genomes and by every measure exhibited the biological personas of the donors.

Washington Post review of "Sicko"

If even WP - that considers "An Inconvenient Truth" "neutral" - charges "Sicko" as "a fuzzy, toothless collection of anecdotes".



Sicko: Movie Showtimes and Reviews on washingtonpost.com's City Guide
Ladies and gentlemen, I think we can agree on two things: The American health-care system is busted and Michael Moore is not the guy to fix it. His "Sicko," an investigation and indictment of a system choking on paperwork, greed, bad policy and countervailing goals, turns out to be a fuzzy, toothless collection of anecdotes, a few stunts and a bromide-rich conclusion. The problem: He never goes for the big picture. He has some fun (and gives some fun) with what might be called inciting incidents -- metaphorical examples, up-close-and-personals with the aggrieved, some muckraking and the like. In the end, it's as if he's afraid of losing his audiences with charts, numbers and assessments from neutral sources, unlike the similar techniques used by Al Gore in "An Inconvenient Truth." Moore never interviews actual veterans of the system: doctors, nurses, administrators -- only the victims. (..)

The movie is partially redeemed, I would say, by Moore's own wit and class: He is a funny guy; who knew he was a noble one, too? The nobility comes in toward the end when he details his own anonymous -- well, it's not anonymous now -- contribution of $12,000 to a fellow whose wife could not get coverage and whose expenses were breaking him financially so he could not keep up his Web site, which basically consisted of screeds meant to destroy Michael Moore. Extremely decent move, guy. Moore asks why a man should be forced to choose between paying for his wife's cancer treatments or destroying Michael Moore. Good question."


Final thoughts: The last question has just one answer: It´s obvious that between to pay one´s own wife cancer treatment and to destroy Michael Moore the former is the rigth. Michael Moore just fades away by himself . His notoriety is just the result of a cultural decadence.
Charity? I would do the same as Moore, but I would never put in on film... That´s the big difference between christian values and materialist values. Only God knows my real intentions on charity and only God will judge it. For and atheist, even charity must "approved" by his acquaintaces to be worth, that means it must be shout to the world as louder as possible..

Final (indeed!) II: Interesting that the real status of Cuban Health Care system is not mentioned... Of course it intented to be a movie critic, not a reliability test on Michael Moore.
But for those who wants to know a little bit about Cuba, here´s a wotrhy video...

General Baduel: The Bolivarian Pikachu???

These are Raúl Isaías Baduel photos, General in Chief of The Venezuealn Army. He is a long "comrade" of Chávez, having supported his coup état attempt in 1992.

In 2002 managed as a commander the Army`s Parachute Brigade in the operation that gave back the government to Chávez after the coup of April 11th, 2002.


The Venezuelan people knew Baduel´s other face when the homepage of National Assembly was hacked and this photo (among the others) was put in place.

So, the moral of the so called "Bolivarian Revolution" is revealed. Chávez, Baduel and others who tried and failed to take the Venezuelan by force in 1992, close a TV station because it was "golpista" (supporter of coup d´etát).

The only thing that I really do not understand is the presence of Pikachu on bed aside of the "General"...
Below, a video from you-tube.

The Great Global Warming Swindle

The British TV Channel 4 produced this documentary "The Great Global Warming Swindle", showing the lies regarding to the thesis that the global warming was caused by the human activities (aka CO2). Yes, nobody is questioning the global warming, but the causes they defend. Unfortunately it was not broadcasted to US.

Here is the full documentary posted in You Tube in nine parts. With portuguese subtitles.

You must see it.

The most appalling truth I learned from it was the unlikeable link between anti-capitalist environmentalists and .. Margareth Thatcher!! She was the creator of the actual monster of "Man Made Global Warming" ...

As 3 Mentiras de Chavez :: The 3 Chavez´s Lies

Nesta entrevista de 1998 (05 de dezembro), às vésperas das eleições que o levaram ao poder, Chavez mente três vezes:

  1. Disse que entregaria o poder depois de cinco anos ("até antes")
  2. Não nacionalizaria nenhuma empresa privada ("ao contrário , buscaria apoio das empresas privadas nacionais e estrangeiras para desenvolver a Venezuela")
  3. Não cassaria nenhuma concessão de canal de televisão privado ("O governo já possui o canal 8, não há necessidade de mais canais estatais")
Este é o típico jogo democrático na América Latina, onde os eleitores acreditam que existe tal coisa (democracia) enquanto os lobos em pele de cordeiro a usam para implantar os seus desejos totalitários.



Veja no vídeo.



::



This interview, taken in December, 1998 (on the eve of the elections day that would make him President ), Chavez lied three times:

  1. He said that he would leave the office in five years ("or even before that")
  2. He would not nationalize any private enterprise ("on the contrary, I would seek the support from national and foreign private enterprises to develop Venezuela")
  3. I would not cease any TV concession ("the government already owns channel 8 and there´s no need for more state TV channels")
Democracy in Latin America is a thing that has two meanings: to the people that believes in it as the goal of an "open society" and for wolfes in lamb´s fur like Chavez, Lula, Evo, Ortega and others, is just a tool to implement their totalitarian views.

Brazilian Kidnapped is Found in Iraq: Dead

[3015614.jpg]

João José Vasconcelos Jr. was kidnapped in Iraq in 2005.

Brazilian President Lula da Silva do nothing that could "embarass" his friends in the Region, all of them supporters of terrorism and anti-americanism. That´s why he couldn´t criticize terrorists who kidnapped Vasconcelos. Instead Brazil in the polite mode "ask" their friends (Syria, Iran) for information. It was like to ask the burglar where the money is.

For Lula and his Foreigner Policy the death of a Brazilian is just a "side effect" or "collateral damage" created by his supportive action to the Foro de Sao Paulo actions.

Here´s the news.

Drug Enforcement Administration Nets International Arm Dealer With Ties To Terrorist Organizations

I am against gun ban. All citizens must have the right to buy or not arms to their own safety.

But if criminals and terrorists are buying arms it must not be for their safety but to hurt and kill other (maybe innocent) people. It must be stopped. Drug Enforcement Administration seems to be doing a nice job. Because these arms are not supposed only to kill "americans" but people like you and me in any part of the globe (but specially where it was appointed).

Some say that wars are prepared by US oinly to sell weapons. It´s a fantasy created by many. The real thing is this: criminals deal with criminals. Criminal countries (and even some "civilized" ) sell arms to other criminal countries (in Iraq, Russia, China, France and even Brazil sold more arms to Saddam that US).


It´s good news!

Brazilian Belly Dancer in Algeria

For a country that exports "tchans", "axe" (samba-reggae) and the bottle-dance, it seems to be easy to perform a belly dance.

A friend of mine has a blog in which he describes his trips around the globe (working). He found out a Brazillian dancer doing a belly dance at Sheraton Hotel in Alger, Algeria.

Check it out.

Brazilian Soccer Heartthrob’s Response to Supermodel’s Anti-Catholic Outburst: I Was a Virgin When I Got Married


Brazilian Soccer Heartthrob’s Response to Supermodel’s Anti-Catholic Outburst: I Was a Virgin When I Got Married

By John Jalsevac


June 7, 2007 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bundchen is receiving widespread media coverage after an outburst in which she criticized the Catholic Church for its teachings on premarital sex, abortion and contraceptives.


Bundchen’s remarks follow closely on the heel’s of Pope Benedict’s visit to the Catholic country, during which visit he repeatedly restated the Church’s teachings on social issues, exhorting Brazilians to live up to the ideals that their faith professes.


Bundchen, however, called the Church’s teachings “ridiculous” in an interview with a Brazilian newspaper. At one point she made the unsubstantiated claim that in the modern world no one ever waits until marriage before having sex, even apparently calling into question the possibility that a man or woman can remain chaste until marriage.


"Today no one is a virgin when they get married ... show me someone who's a virgin!" she said. She went on, criticizing the Catholic Church’s moral teachings saying, "How is it possible to not want people to use condoms and also not have abortions? It's impossible, I'm sorry."


However, in an interview with the Italian edition of “Vanity Fair” that appeared just after the supermodel made her remarks, the Brazilian soccer superstar Ricardo Izecson Santos Leite has said that both he and his wife, Caroline, were virgins when they got married. Ricardo, one of Brazil’s most successful soccer players, has long been known for both his outspoken Christian faith and his remarkable good looks.


“The Bible teaches that true love waits until marriage," Ricardo told “Vanity Fair”, saying about his marriage, “If our life today is so beautiful, I think it is because we waited."


The time prior to his and his wife’s marriage, during which they conducted a chaste relationships, says Ricardo "was important, as it tested our love." The soccer star admitted that it was not easy to stay a virgin until his wedding night, and that even still there are difficulties in living faithfully, saying that “there are always temptations,” but also says that the sacrifices that he and his wife made for each other have been more than worth it.


Gisele Bundchen, who is one of the most popular supermodels in the world, not only called into question the possibility of living chastely and defended the use of contraceptives and abortion, but in a bizarre twist actually indicated that the use of condoms should be “compulsory.”


"It's ridiculous to ban contraceptives,” she said. “You only have to think of the diseases that are transmitted without them. I think it should be compulsory to use a contraceptive."

Transcription of the Video: Interview with Yuri Bezmenov (ex-KGB)

Weeks ago I published a video (here the full video, and here some excerpts) of a former KGB propagandist called Yuri Bezmenov with an interview he gave to Edward Griffin on “Soviet Disinformation” in 1983.

Now I found a “semi” full transcription of the video.

Enjoy!!

----------||---------

ED: Well, you spoke before about “ideological subversion” and that’s a phrase that I’m afraid some Americans don’t understand. When the Soviets use the phrase “ideological subversion” what do they mean by it?

YURI: Ideological subversion is the process which is legitimate and open. You can see it with your own eyes. All American mass media has to do is unplug their bananas from their ears, open up their eyes, and they can see it. It has nothing to do with espionage. I know that intelligence gathering looks more romantic. It sells more deodorants through advertising. That's probably why your Hollywood producers are so crazy about James Bond types of films. But in reality the main emphasis of the KGB is NOT in the area of intelligence at all. According to my opinion, and the opinions of many defectors of my caliber, only about 15% of time, money, and manpower is spent on espionage as such. The other 85% is a slow process which we call either ideological subversion, active measures, or psychological warfare. What it basically means is: to change the perception of reality of every American that despite of the abundance of information no one is able to come to sensible conclusions in the interest of defending themselves, their families, their community, and their country.

It's a great brainwashing process which goes very slow and is divided into four basic stages. The first stage being "demoralization". It takes from 15 to 20 years to demoralize a nation. Why that many years? Because this is the minimum number of years required to educate one generation of students in the country of your enemy exposed to the ideology of [their] enemy. In other words, Marxism-Leninism ideology is being pumped into the soft heads of at least 3 generation of American students without being challenged or counterbalanced by the basic values of Americanism; American patriotism. The result? The result you can see -- most of the people who graduated in the 60's, dropouts or half-baked intellectuals, are now occupying the positions of power in the government, civil service, business, mass media, and educational systems. You are stuck with them. They are contaminated. They are programmed to think and react to certain stimuli in a certain pattern [alluding to Pavlov]. You can not change their mind even if you expose them to authentic information. Even if you prove that white is white and black is black, you still can not change the basic perception and the logic of behavior.

In other words [for] these people the process of demoralization is complete and irreversible. To rid society of these people you need another 15 or 20 years to educate a new generation of patriotically minded and common sense people who would be acting in favor and in the interests of United States society.

ED: And yet these people who have been programmed and as you say [are] in place and who are favorable to an opening with the Soviet concept - these are the very people who would be marked for extermination in this country?

YURI: Most of them, yes. Simply because the psychological shock when they will see in [the] future what the beautiful society of EQUALITY and social justice means in practice, obviously they will revolt. They will be very unhappy [and] frustrated people, and Marxist-Leninist regime does not tolerate these people. Obviously they will join the [ranks] of dissenters; dissidents. Unlike the present United States there will be no place for dissent in future Marxist-Leninist America. [Now] you can get popular like Daniel Elsburg and filthy rich like Jane Fonda for being a dissident [and] for criticizing your Pentagon. In [the] future these people will simply be [he makes a squishy noise] squashed like cockroaches for criticizing the government. Nobody is going to pay them nothing for their beautiful [and] noble ideas of EQUALITY. This they don't understand and it will be the greatest shock for them, of course.

The demoralization process in the United States is basically completed already for the last 25 years. Actually, it's over fulfilled because demoralization now reaches such areas where not even Comrade Andropov and all his experts would even dream of such tremendous success. Most of it is done by Americans to Americans thanks to lack of moral standards. As I mentioned before, exposure to true information does not matter anymore. A person who was demoralized is unable to assess true information. The facts tell nothing to him, even if I shower him with information, with authentic proof, with documents and pictures. ...he will refuse to believe it until he's going to receive a kick in his fat bottom. When a military [or Joint Terrorism Task Force] boot crashes his balls, then he will understand, but not before that. That's the tragedy of the situation of demoralization.

The next stage is destabilization.... It only takes 2 to 5 years to destabilize a nation. This time what matters is essentials; economy, foreign relations, [and] defense systems. And you can see it quite clearly that in some... sensitive areas such as defense and [the] economy, the influence of Marxist-Leninist ideas in the United States is absolutely fantastic. I could never believe it 14 years ago when I landed in this part of the world that the process will go that fast.

Most of the American politicians, media, and educational system train another generation of people who think they are living at the peacetime. False. United States is in a state of war; undeclared, total war against the basic principles and foundations of this system. And the initiator of this war is not Comrade Andropov of course - it's the system. However, ridiculous it may sound, [it is] the world Communist system, or the world Communist conspiracy. Whether I scare some people or not, I don't give a hoot. If you're not scared by now, nothing can scare you.

ED: Okay, so what do we do? What is your recommendation to the American people?

YURI: Well, the immediate thing that comes to mind is, of course, there must be a very strong national effort to educate people in the spirit of REAL patriotism, number one. Number two, to explain [to] them the real danger of socialist, communist, welfare state, Big Brother government.... The moment at least part of [the] United States population is convinced that the danger is real, they have to FORCE their government, and I'm not talking about sending letters, signing petitions, and all this beautiful, noble activity, I'm talking about FORCING [the] United States government to stop aiding Communism....and it is very easy to do; no credits, no technology, no money, no political or diplomatic recognition...
