Caught Red-Handed: Google Search Suppresses Climate Realism

Caught Red-Handed: Google Search Suppresses Climate Realism:

Claims that Google Search improperly downranks some websites are frequent but not always correct, and they’re hard to prove even if they are. But the latest available (May 2017) Google Search Quality Evaluation General Guidelines provide conclusive proof of intentional, severe, and malicious suppression of climate realist views.  A quote:

“High quality information pages on scientific topics should represent well established scientific consensus on issues where such consensus exists.” (Section 3.2)

But the allegations of “scientific consensus” are made only in one field – climate alarmism!  “Scientific consensus” is almost an oxymoron.  Consensus is a decision-making method used outside of science.  This language is inserted in the guidelines with only one purpose – to eliminate climate realism websites from the results, shown to Google Search users.  This discrimination is exacerbated by classifying “news about important topics such as international events, business, politics, science, and technology;” as Your Money or Your Life (YMYL) Pages, for which Google claims to have especially high quality standards.  Classification of news as Your Money or Your Life Pages (which includes medical, legal, financial, and safety advice) is obviously intended to suppress political information that differs from the opinions of the leftstream media and Wikipedia, which Google considers the guardians of truth.  That is why WUWT and other climate realism websites are so well hidden by Google Search.

Scientists find skin cells at the root of balding, gray hair

FYI.

Scientists find skin cells at the root of balding, gray hair:

UT Southwestern Medical Center researchers have identified the cells that directly give rise to hair as well as the mechanism that causes hair to turn gray – findings that could one day help identify possible treatments for balding and hair graying.

“Although this project was started in an effort to understand how certain kinds of tumors form, we ended up learning why hair turns gray and discovering the identity of the cell that directly gives rise to hair,” said Dr. Lu Le, Associate Professor of Dermatology with the Harold C. Simmons Comprehensive Cancer Center at UT Southwestern. “With this knowledge, we hope in the future to create a topical compound or to safely deliver the necessary gene to hair follicles to correct these cosmetic problems.”

Fastest Decline In Solar Activity In 9,300 Years!!!

Fastest decline in solar activity in 9,300 years:

Could signal a descent into Maunder Minimum-like conditions.

*****

“The recent prolonged solar minimum and subsequent weak solar cycle 24 have led to suggestions that the grand solar maximum may be at an end,” says this study on nature.com.

The study,  published in 2015, looked at past variations of solar activity. In 2010, the study found, scientists estimated a mere 8% chance of a return to Maunder Minimum-like conditions within the next 40 years.

However, “the decline in solar activity has continued, to the time of writing, and is faster than any other such decline in 9,300 years. (Italics added)

Vostok ice cores prove that CO2 was not the driver – CO2 changes come AFTER the temperature changes

Vostok ice cores prove that CO2 was not the driver:

CO2 changes come AFTER the temperature changes.

“While the CO2 and temperature go up – somewhat – together,  when the temperature plummets after each peak, the CO2 stays high!” says reader Jimmy Walter.’

“If CO2 were the driver, the temperature could not drop!”

Lipoic acid in nutritional supplements found to help prevent multiple sclerosis, study finds

Lipoic acid in nutritional supplements found to help prevent multiple sclerosis, study finds:

The results of a new pilot study showed the efficacy of lipoic acid in the reduction of whole brain atrophy among patients with secondary progressive multiple sclerosis (SPMS) compared with recently approved FDA drug ocrelizumab (brand name Ocrevus). In a randomized, double-blind study, researchers found that a daily dose of 1,200 mg of lipoic acid taken for two years reduced symptoms associated with SPMS, a more severe form of multiple sclerosis. These findings could offer hope for patients with MS, a condition with no recognized cure.

Lipoic acid is a naturally-occurring antioxidant produced by the body. In Europe, it is regulated as drug as a treatment for diabetes-related complications as well as conditions associated with alcoholism. Here, it is marketed as an alternative supplement, aimed at reducing the effects of oxidative stress. While there have been several attempts to link the antioxidant with the prevention or treatment of various diseases, this is the first conclusive study which suggests the potency of lipoic acid with regards to neurological conditions.

Tutankhamun’s Scarab Brooch Was Born of a 28-Million-Year Old Comet Strike

Tutankhamun’s Scarab Brooch Was Born of a 28-Million-Year Old Comet Strike:

When Howard Carter and Lord Carnarvon first discovered the chambers of treasures of the 18th Dynasty pharaoh Tutankhamun in 1922, it was a phenomenal event in historical discovery. One remarkable, though tiny, component of that haul was result of a phenomenal event that occurred 28 million years earlier. The impact of this incomprehensively ancient comet that had come hurtling through the cosmos to collide with the Earth, created a component which was subsequently used as the centerpiece of King Tut’s brooch.

How Does the New ‘Gene-Altering’ Therapy Fight Cancer?:

A new type of cancer treatment that involves altering a person’s genes — and could save children’s lives — passed a major hurdle this week, when a U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) panel recommended that the agency approve the therapy, The New York Times reported. But how does the treatment work?

The treatment is for an uncommon type of leukemia, called B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia, that affects mainly children and young adults, according to the Times. The success rate of the treatment that was seen in a recent clinical trial was “astonishing,” said Lee Greenberger, chief scientific officer of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS). Greenberger was not involved directly in the research of the new therapy, but the LLS has contributed significant funding toward the work.

Leukemia is cancer of white blood cells, and it starts in the bone marrow, the soft material found in the center of bones that produces blood cells.

People Could Make Smallpox from Scratch in a Lab, Scientists Warn

And what could possibly go wrong?

People Could Make Smallpox from Scratch in a Lab, Scientists Warn:

Scientists have re-created a relative of the smallpox virus in a lab, from scratch.

This virus, called the horsepox virus, is not harmful to humans, but the new findings suggest that it’s possible for people to make the deadly smallpox virus in a lab. That virus was eradicated from the world in 1980, according to the journal Science.

Re-creating the horsepox virus wasn’t a trivial feat, but it did not require extensive resources, either. The researchers ordered the DNA fragments they used to make the virus from a company that makes DNA pieces for researchers, with made-to-order sequences, and sends them through the mail. In total, the project cost $100,000 and took six months, Science reported. [The 9 Deadliest Viruses on Earth]

Chinese Scientists Just Set the Record for the Farthest Quantum Teleportation

Chinese Scientists Just Set the Record for the Farthest Quantum Teleportation:

Chinese scientists have just shattered a record in teleportation. No, they haven’t beamed anyone up to a spaceship. Rather, they sent a packet of information from Tibet to a satellite in orbit, up to 870 miles (1,400 kilometers) above the Earth’s surface.

More specifically, the scientists beamed the quantum state of a photon (information about how it is polarized) into orbit.

Plant roots grow and spread like neurons in the human brain, shocked scientists discover

Plant roots grow and spread like neurons in the human brain, shocked scientists discover:

A research project that was conducted by a team of researchers at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies in San Diego, California that was titled A Statistical Description of Plant Shoot Architecture and was published in the journal Current Biology, concluded that plants grow very similarly like neurons in the human brain.

Saket Navlakha, assistant professor in Salk’s Center for Integrative Biology and lead author of the study, said they were interested in finding the basic elements involved in a plant’s growth, noting, “Our project was motivated by the question of whether, despite all the diversity we see in plant forms, there is some form or structure they all share.”
