RIP Coretta Scott King

I was shocked and saddened today when I was looking through the RSS feeds and found that Coretta Scott King had passed away. She spent her entire life working to make the world a better place. A place where every person is treated with the dignity and respect that they deserve.

Our world is a lesser place without her.

Trauma pills, lonely stars, and some late news from C|Net

A team of Canadian researchers has discovered that people with PTSD have fewer, less vivid flashbacks if they’re taking a drug called propranolol.

Propranolol is a beta-blocker commonly used to treat high blood pressure and similar ailments. It apparently, in this case, prevents the release of a hormone in the brain. The lack of this hormone prevents the unsettling memories from retaining their strength and allows them to decay normally over time.

‘Trauma pill’ could help those with PTSD from PhysOrg.com

For years astronomers have believed that most of the stars in the Milky Way galaxy were twin stars, that is, two stars that orbit each other and form the basis of a solar system.

Common wisdom among astronomers holds that most star systems in the Milky Way are multiple, consisting of two or more stars in orbit around each other. Common wisdom is wrong. A new study by Charles Lada of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics (CfA) demonstrates that most star systems are made up of single stars. Since planets probably are easier to form around single stars, planets also may be more common than previously suspected.

And lastly, Esoterica, a C|Net News.com blog described as “A News.com compendium of the obscure”, has finally caught on to a link that I received weeks ago, if not at the beginning of the month.

Of course, it’s late arrival didn’t stop me from drooling of the image it was about…

The Golden Girls vs. Dish Network

The New York Times is running a piece about the current battle raging between Echostar (owner of Dish Network) and the Lifetime television channels (which broadcasts (exclusively?) The Golden Girls on television).

Echostar makes one claim, Lifetime makes another. I don’t care really, the most interesting thing about all of this is that sign that the far-left woman is holding in the image.

CNN.com – GIs from celebrated unit in gay porn?

Oh yeah, shame on the military for even investigating. DADT is crap policy and always will be.
