However, the ban on federal funding for anything but the short list of embryonic stem cell lines has prevented a lot of needed work from being done. Efforts at getting around that ban and using other sources of funding are greatly complicated by the ban, resulting in much wasted time on the part or researchers and adminsitrators and a lot of money spent on duplicating resources (buildings and equipment) that would otherwise be spent on getting the science done.
Maybe they will get a chance to spend those $20 million this year afterall.
The central valley is R. Farmers, ranchers and their neighbors. Generally, the big cities lean D, just like the rest of the country. Red vs. blue is really rural/suburban vs. city.One of the interesting trends is that due to the high coest of housing in the bay area and other places, people are moving farther out of the cities, computing likenuts to work, but at the same time increasing the numbers of D's in R territory.
They are the experts, their heads are in the subject-matter 24/7. Nobody knows anals like analysts.
I couldn't agree more. All the big important issues now were there two years ago. Foley may save the election for the D's, becuase it looked like spetemeber terrorizing of the public by the R's was working again. Part of me just doesn't beleive the D's will pul it off, because they failed so miserably in the last election. REally, if they gain the house or the Senate, then the have the R's to thank.
Yes, I saw it on TV here in San Francisco. Can't remember the station.
Needle sticks from people positive for HIV have led to HIV infection and AIDS. If the 'donor' was HIV negative then no HIV infection and no AIDS. In other words, the test has been done - by accident - and supports the overwhelming conclusion that AIDS is the results of HIV infection. Can other viruses cause immune impairment? Yes, but HIV cuases AIDS, no doubt.
The Zune Phone to modeled after the brown shoe phone used by Maxwell Smart. I always knew Gates and company worked for Chaos.
Didn't Apple say that the OS updates would be coming less frequently now? I seem to remember that. They've been coming quickly because OSX was new and had so much room for obvious improvement.
A nice article in todays SFGate about predictions of global warming's impact on California. http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/articl...01/WARMING.TMP Also there is this PDF of the report that you can download: http://sfgate.com/chronicle/acrobat/...ate_report.pdf Bottom line is don't invest in sea-side property and prepare for water-wars the likes of which have never been seen in our state.
