The DIME Bomb (The Other Chemical Weapon)

Tuesday, December 30, 2008

Phosphorus weapons cause chemical burns and the Red Cross and human rights groups argue they should be treated as chemical weapons. Usage of this type of chemical ammunition causes burns and injuries in soft tissue and cannot be traced by X-ray.

This takes you back to the post I made about Depleted Uranium , but no one cared. Chemical or depleted uranium could be used in ammunition production. Banned weapons, including phosphorus incendiary bombs and vacuum bombs may be in use today, by both Israel and Hamas.

The use of chemical weapons against civilians or against military targets in civilian areas is outlawed by the Geneva Conventions.


Doctors in the past have reported wounds very similar to Dense Inert Metal Explosive (DIME). DIME is a carbon-encased missile that shatters on impact into minuscule splinters, at the same time setting off an explosive that shoots blades of energy-charged, heavy metal tungsten alloy (HMTA) powder, such as cobalt and nickel or iron, with a carbon fiber casing. It turns to dust on impact, as it loses inertia very quickly due to air resistance, burning and destroying through a very precise angulation everything within a four-meter range.

Tungsten, the main material that would stray outside of the target zone, is also said to be highly carcinogenic and harmful to the environment. Past samples has shown a very high concentration of carbon, as well as copper, aluminum and tungsten in the soil, leading to a question of DIME.

Since DIME is new, international law has not passed judgment on its legality, in other words,

DIME would be the perfect weapon.

Melting Ice/Snow

Tuesday, December 23, 2008

If you live in an area with a cold and icy winter, you have probably experienced salt on sidewalks and roads, used to melt the ice and snow and keep it from refreezing. Salt is also used to make homemade ice cream. In both cases, the salt works by lowering the melting or freezing point of water. The effect is termed 'freezing point depression'.

How Freezing Point Depression Works

When you add salt to water, you introduce dissolved foreign particles into the water. The freezing point of water becomes lower as more particles are added until the point where the salt stops dissolving. For a solution of table salt (sodium chloride, NaCl) in water, this temperature is -21°C (-6°F) under controlled lab conditions. In the real world, on a real sidewalk, sodium chloride can melt ice only down to about -9°C (15°F).

Colligative Properties

Freezing point depression is a colligative property of water. A colligative property is one which depends on the number of particles in a substance. All liquid solvents with dissolved particles (solutes) demonstrate colligative properties. Other colligative properties include boiling point elevation, vapor pressure lowering, and osmotic pressure.

More Particles Mean More Melting Power

Sodium chloride isn't the only salt used for de-icing, nor is it necessarily the best choice. Sodium chloride dissolves into two types of particles: one sodium ion and one chloride ion per sodium chloride 'molecule'. A compound that yields more ions into a water solution would lower the freezing point of water more than salt. For example, calcium chloride (CaCl2) dissolves into three ions (one of calcium and two of chloride) and lowers the freezing point of water more than sodium chloride. Here are some other de-icing compounds:

Chemicals Used to Melt Ice

Ammonium sulfate (NH4)2SO4 -7°C

Depleted Uranium

Tuesday, December 9, 2008

Radiological dirty bombs has moved well beyond the plotting and
shooting stage, and has produced dire consequences. Toxic, radioactive uranium-238, called depleted uranium may be responsible for deadly health
consequences.

Depleted uranium "penetrators" as they are called burn on impact and up to 70 percent of the DU is released (aerosolized) as toxic and radioactive dust that can be inhaled and ingested and later trapped in the lungs or kidneys.

These uranium oxide particles emit all types of radiation: alpha, beta and gamma, and can be carried in the air over long distances.

DU is left after uranium ore has gone through the gaseous diffusion process that removes most of the fissionable isotope U-235. DU is used in munitions for piercing armor plate.

The most serious exposure to DU occurs when a large amount is taken into the body, absorbed by the blood, and then carried to tissues and organs where it can do damage. There are three
primary ways that DU can enter your body. They are by ingestion (drinking or eating), inhalation (breathing dust), and through wound contamination or DU fragments embedded in the body. Skin contact or being near intact DU munitions or armored tanks will not cause this type of exposure or bring DU into your body. DU dust can be inhaled during and immediately after DU munitions have struck a vehicle or if DU munitions are involved in a fire on the battlefield. DU dust can also be inhaled by people in or around armored vehicles after they are damaged by DU munitions. People near the crash of some aircraft may also be exposed to DU dusts from burning counterweights if the DU is exposed to prolonged intense heat.

Since kidneys remove uranium, urine tests can identify when people have been exposed to higher than normal amounts of uranium, including depleted uranium.

While the term "depleted" implies it isn't dangerous, depleted uranium is still radioactive and
chemically toxic.

Pearl Harbor, December 7, 1941

Sunday, December 7, 2008

The December 7, 1941 Japanese raid on Pearl Harbor was one of the great defining moments in history.

Two Army operators at Oahu's northern shore radar station detect the Japanese air attack approaching and contact a junior officer who disregards their reports, thinking they are American B-17 planes which are expected in from the U.S. west coast.

The attacking planes came in two waves; the first with 51
'Val' dive bombers, 40 'Kate' torpedo bombers, 50 high level bombers and 43 'Zero' fighters, commences the attack with flight commander, Mitsuo Fuchida, sounding the battle cry: "Tora! Tora! Tora!" (Tiger! Tiger! Tiger!). The second wave targets other ships and shipyard facilities.

The air raid lasts until 9:45 a.m. Eight battleships are damaged, with five sunk. Three light cruisers, three destroyers and three smaller vessels are lost along with 188 aircraft. Within a short time five of eight battleships at Pearl Harbor were sunk or sinking, with the rest damaged.

Behind them they left chaos, 2,403 dead, 188 destroyed planes and a crippled Pacific Fleet that included 8 damaged or destroyed battleships.


The casualty list includes 2,335 servicemen and 68 civilians killed, with 1,178 wounded. Included are 1,104 men aboard the Battleship USS Arizona killed after a 1,760-pound air bomb penetrated into the forward magazine causing catastrophic explosions.

America, unprepared and now considerably weakened, was abruptly brought into the Second World War as a full combatant.

1000 die of cholera in Zimbabwe

Wednesday, December 3, 2008

Cholera, a waterborne disease that causes diarrhea, dehydration and, if not treated, death in a matter of hours. Zimbabwe warns that the contagious disease is spreading fast since raw sewage from burst pipes near the capital, Harare, flowed into wells, rivers and streams, the only source of drinking water for many Zimbabweans.

One way of getting clean drinking water is the SkyHydrant. The design is compact, robust and self-cleaning. It is intended for efficient transport and deployment with minimal training and operator interface. The system works by pumping water through approximately 20,000 ultra-fine fibers, a process that removes all pathogens with diameters of over 0.1 micrometers. The system doesn’t require electric power or purification chemicals. One is used at the Gona Dam in Kenya.


In Zimbabwe at least 565 people have lost their lives in the outbreak, according to a statement from the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) on Wednesday. More than 1,000 have died. The U.N. says that about 12,000 more people are suspected to be infected.
Lets see how quick a portable water purification system will be sent to Zimbabwe or any country that has outbreaks of diarrhea, cholera, and typhus.

Message to OCHA , GET SOME HELP THERE!

Biosensing, the future on Nanotechnology

Monday, December 1, 2008

Peptide nucleic acids (PNA) are synthetic DNA analogues or mimics with a polyamide backbone instead of a sugar phosphate bone. The significant of this post is the importance to biosensing, PNAs exhibit superior hybridization characteristics and improved chemical and enzymatic stability compared to nucleic acids. Both double and triple stranded complexes are capable of being formed by PNA in association with nucleotides the negatively charged ribosephosphate backbone of nucleic acids is replaced by an uncharged N-(2-aminoethyl)-glycine scaffold to which the nucleobases are attached via a methylene carbonyl linker.

The neutral amide backbone also enables PNA to hybridize to DNA molecules in lowsalt conditions because no positive ions are necessary for counteracting the interstrand repulsion that hampers duplex formation between two negatively charged nucleic acids.
Consequently, the abundance and stability of intramolecular folding structures in the DNA or RNA analytes are significantly reduced, making the molecules more accessible to complementary PNA oligomers. Because the intramolecular distances and configuration of the nucleobases are similar to those of natural DNA molecules, specific hybridization occurs between PNAs and cDNA or RNA sequences.

The uncharged nature of PNAs is responsible for a better thermal stability of PNA–DNA duplexes compared with DNA–DNA equivalents and, as a result, single-base mismatches have a considerably more destabilizing effect As with DNA, the decrease in duplex stability depends on the position of the mismatch within the sequence. Thus, the use of PNAs will contribute significantly to establishment of faster and more reliable biosensing applications.
PNAs have now been used to replace DNA to functionalize gold nanoparticles and, upon hybridization to complementary DNA strands and formation of nanoparticle aggregates, resulted in (1) a red-to-blue color transition and (2) high discrimination of DNA single-base mismatches. PNAs are stable across a wide range of temperatures and pHs. Of significant importance in clinical samples, PNAs are resistant to nucleases and proteases. In contrast to DNA molecular beacons, stemless PNA beacons are less sensitive to ionic strength and the quenched fluorescence of PNA is not affected by DNAbinding proteins. This enables the use of PNA beacons under conditions that are not feasible for DNA beacons.

The very different nature of PNA molecular structure enables new modes of detection, especially procedures that avoid the introduction of a label. The change of color results from the shift of surface plasmon band upon aggregation and this property is now the basis of colorimetric biosensors for selective detection of DNA. PNA functionized gold nanoparticles have been shown to be simple, highly sensitive and selective. Xi and coworkers used DNA and PNA molecular beacons to detect and quantify rRNA in solution and in whole cells. Of clinical relevance, PNA molecular beacons are ideal tools for detection of whole bacteria in solution and in real time. Xi and coworkers use
real-time confocal microscopy to detect the fluorescence emitted from DNA and PNA molecular beacons in microfluidic systems.

Deccan Mujahideen Remember This Name

Sunday, November 30, 2008

Bedlam is always be suspicious when a "new" terrorist organization crops up. Just keep the chemical warfare out and Bedlam will be fine. This weeks attacks in Mumbai were claimed by a previously unknown group calling itself the Deccan Mujahideen. If you look at the pattern of the attacks suggests that Lashkar-e-Taiba, a nasty Islamist organization based in Lahore, Pakistan, and with a significant presence in Kashmir and links to al Qaeda, may be to blame. For now, all intelligence agencies are claiming Deccan Mujahideen for the attacks.

Deccan means South in Hindi and refers to the Deccan Plateau. Mujahideen means "strugglers" in Arabic, but is also the word used by militant groups referring to fighters, members, and terrorists. Most of the terrorists appear to be men in their early 20s, speaking both Hindi and Urdu, the national languages of India and Pakistan.

A group calling itself the "Indian Mujahideen" has claimed responsibility for attacks in a number of different cities over the past several months. The Indian Mujahideen sent a warning in September expressing anger over recent raids by the city's antiterrorism squad.

Something to notice is the unusual feature of the Mumbai assault is that they came in the from the sea, highly organized, armed with grenades, assault rifles, and other weaponry. Then the terrorists used small, high speed boats for their landing.

The group took credit for the attacks in the letter, stateing the "continuing injustice against the Muslims" as their reasoning for the violence.

Army attacks Mumbai’s Taj Mahal hotel

Friday, November 28, 2008

The Indian military launched a grenade attack Friday on Mumbai's Taj Mahal Hotel to flush out at least one militant who returned fire, scattering media assembled opposite the building.

Four grenades were launched into a part of the hotel where the militant or militants were believed to be hiding.

Bedlam is having flash backs of the scenes. Bedlam remember the drop points (in the years past, whooooo)

Police said earlier "a substantial amount" of explosives were found at the Taj that could have caused "major damage."

'Bedlam secure that point'. There Bedlam go 'spidy'

"At least one terrorist or maximum two" were holed up in the ballroom of the Taj, but no hostages were left inside "to the best of our knowledge," Maharashtra state police chief A.N. Roy told Indian television.

The Taj was one of two luxury hotels seized by extremists late Wednesday after coordinated attacks across the city that left at least 130 dead.

More US troops for Kabul

Monday, November 24, 2008

A brigade of 3,500-4,000 extra US troops due in Pak-Afghan border in January will be deployed to stop infiltration of militants. The brigade has been approved as part of requested US troop reinforcements for Afghanistan's fight against extremists that could amount to about 20,000 personnel. The first brigade will go into the Nato-led RC-East to stop militants entering Afghanistan. "Operation Lionheart" was launched this month along the border. The Afghan officials have called for extra troops on the border to fight a growing Taliban-led insurgency. Three combat brigades will total the 20,000 personnel requested, included will be intelligence and air power.

Soil of Rakh Dera Chal

Saline Soil possesses no Radionuclide hazards for humans. (st rpt)

The gamma ray spectrometer, activity concentrations of the natural radionuclides of the uranium and thorium series, 40K and a fission product 137Cs were investigated in the soil samples from saline patch of Rakh Dera Chal near the city of Lahore.

The average values of specific gamma
ray activities due to 137Cs, 40K, 232Th and 226Ra and the activity levels were found to fallow the normal distribution. Three most important primordial radionuclides investigated in the area of interest were 40K, 226Ra and 232Th. Natural potassium has three isotopes; 39K, 40K and 41K, among them only 40K (T1/2 = 1.3x109 yr) possesses natural gamma radioactivity and its
abundance in nature is 0.012 % of all Potassium.

During decay 40K
produces two daughter products with the emission of beta and gamma radiation they are 40Ca and 40Ar. Testing the use of fertilizers in large extent have affected radio nuclides concentration, specially potassium containing fertilizers are the one of the cause of presence of high activity of 40K in soils. The high value of 40K may be also due to their soil origin. The concentration range of 40K in soil was 524.8–601.6 Bq kg-1 with and average value of 561.6 Bq kg-1.

The other naturally occurring radionuclides measured were
226Ra and 232Th. Radium-226 (a member of 238U series) is considered as 'the highly radiotoxic natural radionuclide'. The range of measured activity
of 226Ra was 24.7Å|28.2 Bq kg-1 with an average of 25.8 Bq kg-1. The range of measured specific activity of 232Th (T1/2 = 1.4 x 1010 yr) was 45.5Å|52.6 Bq kg-1 with an average of 49.2 Bq kg-1. The average activity value of 232Th was two times higher than that of 226Ra. The activity concentration of 40K in soil is order of magnitude higher than that of 226Ra and 232Th.

The activity of 137Cs in all the samples was found below the lowest limit of
detection. Im suggesting the reasons of non existence of 137Cs in the soil of Rakh Dera Chal may be that the trees and grass in the land might have provided shield to the land for the reach of 137Cs (from the nuclear fall) to the land. The grass contaminated with 137Cs might have been grazed by the cattles and most of the remaining 137Cs would have been eroded by rain, wind, etc. The decay of naturally occurring radionuclides in soil produces a gamma–beta radiation fields in soil that also crosses the soil–air interface to produce exposures to humans. External exposures outdoors arise from terrestrial radionuclides present at trace levels in all soils. The external gamma dose rate in air is calculated from measurement of concentration of the relevant radionuclide in soil.

Happy Veterans Day America. (SALUTE) Too all my family, friends, and active troops, This is the day. Bedlam is out on assignment but I had to post this, why ?? because of the duty I served for this county. What is so shocking about this day is that, last week every mutherfuck in America was so dame political and expressing their fuckup ass opinions about 'the election', yes damit, the fucking election. And the very ones that have given you the right to express your fucked up opinions, you neglect. (pisses me off) Bedlam will never forget *8 bites* . How many fucking blogs make a post of this day ????? For those that are honoring this day, BEDLAM SALUTES YOU. I have got to go !!!!!

Vityaz

Thursday, November 6, 2008

New addition to the arsenal, the Knight SMG or PP-19-01 "Vityaz". I got to admit this is a dandy.

The PP-19-01 is based on the AKS-74U compact assault rifle, with simple blowback action. Apparently it’s a standard kalashnikov receiver that’s been converted to a 9mm length magazine well and a blowback bolt. Sort of like 9mm AR-15 conversions.

It’s related to the bizon SMG, except that it uses conventional box magazines rather than the bizon’s helical feed magazines. Some call it ‘AK-9’. The ‘Vityaz’ uses more conventional box magazines and fires more powerful 9x19 ammunition. The bolt system is of simple blowback type, and gun is fired from closed bolt, utilizing standard AK-type trigger and safety / fire selector subsystems.

Cleaning is simple, compared to the other sub’s. I would love to get the H&K MP5 chambered for .40 S&W.

However this one is a little better. Move Over UZI.

Two Mid-South men plot to kill Obama

Tuesday, October 28, 2008

Two Mid-South men with strong white-supremacy beliefs are in custody In Memphis, Tennessee after planning a state-to-state killing spree that included assassinating Barack Obama, the two also targeted 88 black citizens and beheading 14 blacks. The numbers 88 and 14 have special significance within the 'White Power' movement.

Daniel Cowart, 20, of Bells, Tenn., near Jackson, and Paul Schlesselman, 18, of Helena-West Helena, Ark., hatched their plan after they met on the Internet last month and discussed their shared interest in "White Power" and "Skinhead" philosophies.

Schlesselman states that they planned to drive their vehicle as fast as they could toward Obama, shooting at him from the windows. Both individuals stated they would dress in all-white tuxedos and wear top hats during the assassination attempt. Both
individuals further stated they knew they would and were willing to die during this attempt. They wrote racially motivated words and symbols on Cowart's vehicle, including a Swastika and the numbers 14 and 88. The numbers are symbols in skinhead culture, referring to a 14-word phrase attributed to an imprisoned white supremacist: "We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children" and to the eighth letter of the alphabet, H. Two 8's or H's stand for "Heil Hitler.

The two men are charged with making threats against a major candidate for the office of president, conspiracy to rob a federal firearms licensee and possession of a sawed-off shotgun. They were arrested Wednesday in Crockett County, appeared in federal court Monday in Memphis. They are in custody and have a hearing Thursday when a judge will determine whether to set a bond.

8 year old dies after accidentally shooting himself with UZI

Monday, October 27, 2008

Photo by David Molnar / The Republican
As his father, Sean Connery snaps a photograph, left, Devin Connery of Lunenburg, fires a Heckler & Koch Universal Machine-Pistol at the Machine Gun Shoot and Firearms Expo sponsored by the Westfield Sportsman Club and C.O.P. Firearms and Training on Sunday. Later in the day, an 8-year-old boy accidentally shot himself to death while shooting an UZI.



WESTFIELD - An 8-year-old boy lost control of a fully automatic UZI he was shooting while at the Machine Gun Shoot And Firearms Expo. He was shooting the weapon down range when the force of the weapon made it travel up and back toward his head, where he suffered the injury. UZI’s come in many sizes, Bedlam’s shoots a short barrel Israel Military Industries 9mm. Bedlam knows the force that these weapons produce and no way even with supervision will Bedlam let an 8 year old fire one of these -- full auto.

There's an investigation going on now involving both Westfield police and the state police assigned the incident.

The Westfield Sportsman's Club, in association with COP Firearms & Training of Amherst, was conducting a machine gun shoot and firearms exposition. Bedlam has participated in many machine gun shoot, and still cannot figure why they would let juniors handle this type of weapon. A great deal of safety it presented during these events and there are a number of certified instructors on the range during active fire.

Westfield police said, "it appears the incident was purely accidental," Bedlam says accidental or not a young child is dead from a gun. Bedlam is a member of NRA and supports gun rights for Americans, Bedlam does not support gun carelessness.

Lawsuit Against Obama Dismissed, Appeal Goes to US Supreme Court

Sunday, October 26, 2008

Philip J. Berg, Esquire, the Attorney who filed suit against Barack H. Obama challenging Senator Obama's lack of "qualifications" to serve as President of the United States, announced today that he is immediately appealing the dismissal of his case to the United States Supreme Court. The case is Berg v. Obama, No. 08-cv-04083.

This is a question of who has standing to uphold our Constitution. If I don't have standing, if you don't have standing, if your neighbor doesn't have standing to question the eligibility of an individual to be President of the United States - the Commander-in-Chief, the most powerful person in the world - then who does?

So, anyone can just claim to be eligible for congress or the presidency without having their legal status, age or citizenship questioned.

According to Judge Surrick, we the people have no right to police the eligibility requirements under the U.S. Constitution.

What happened to ‘...Government of the people, by the people, for the people,...' Abraham Lincoln in his Gettysburg Address 1863.

We must legally prevent Obama, the unqualified candidate, from taking the Office of the Presidency of the United States," Berg said.

Berg again stressed his position regarding the urgency of this case as, "we" the people, are heading to a "Constitutional Crisis" if this case is not resolved forthwith.

If Obama wins the Presidency and the U.S. Supreme Courts find that he is not a U.S citizen, what will that mean to the office?

What will this mean to all of the citizens that supported Obama?

What will this mean to FOLK PEOPLE ?

Dolemite Rest In Peace

Tuesday, October 21, 2008

Rudy Ray Moore (March 17, 1937 - October 19, 2008) was an American comedian, musician, singer, film actor, and film producer. He is perhaps best known as Dolemite, the uniquely articulate pimp from the 1975 film Dolemite, and its sequel, The Human Tornado. The persona was developed during his earlier stand-up comedy records.

Moore began his entertainment career as an R&B singer and continued singing through his comedy career. He developed an interest in comedy in the Army after expanding on a singing performance for other servicemen.

Rudy Ray Moore released many comedy records throughout the 1960s and 1970s, developing a style even more rude and explicit than contemporaries like Redd Foxx and Richard Pryor. This kept him off of television and major films, but cultivated an enduring fan base.

He also guested on Big Daddy Kane's album Taste of Chocolate, released in 1990. He is from Cleveland Ohio.

Moore starred in Big Money Hustlas, a movie created by and starring the Insane Clown Posse, in which he played Dolemite for the first time in over 20 years.

In 2008 Rudy Ray Moore reprised the character Petey Wheatstraw for the song "I Live For The Funk" Featuring Blowfly and Daniel Jordan. This marked the first time Blowfly and Rudy have collaborated on the same record together, and the 30 year anniversary of the movie Petey Wheatstraw.

On Oct 19th 2008, R R Moore died from diabetes complications. Death was "Breathing down his neck"

Doctors Warn Over Rash from Excessive Cell Phone Use

Clinicial testing revealed the reaction was caused by nickel in the mobile phone handsets, where it is often found in the casing or buttons, particularly in the most fashionable models.

Test showed that allergies exposure to hexavalent chromium plating nickel, budesonide, mercaptobenzothiazole, and paraben mix were at least 1.12 times more common.

People that may have had reactions to a nickel-coated belt-buckle or jewellery, for example, you are at greater risk of reacting to metal phones.

In mobile phone dermatitis would typically occur on the cheek or ear, depending on where the metal part of the phone comes into contact with the skin.

You can purchase a test kit (Allertest Ni, Allerderm Laboratories, Phoenix, Arizona), in which we applied a drop of dimethylglyoxime and a drop of ammonium hydroxide solution to a cotton-tipped applicator and rubbed it on the part of the equipment being tested.

Bisphenol A - a chemical used to make a wide variety of plastic goods, including most baby bottles, may not be safe. It's called bisphenol-A, or BPA. Tests involving lab rats and mice have shown that even small amounts of exposure to Bisphenol A can lead to a range of serious ailments. Bisphenol A. is found in all kinds of common products, mostly polycarbonate plastics (baby bottles to water cooler jugs, bicycle helmets, CDs and the lining inside tin cans)

Animal studies have linked Bisphenol A to low sperm count, hyperactivity, early puberty, obesity, small testes size, and enlarged prostates.


Three things to know about the study:

* It doesn't actually demonstrate any health hazard. It only looked at the genetic effects of Bisphenol A on mice, and not at whether it caused reproductive problems or deformed embryos.

* The techniques used in the study don't necessarily predict actual harm in animals or humans.

* The study does not show that the effects seen are relevant to humans.


In a recent study, fetal umbilical blood shows higher Bisphenol A levels than was generated in mice. Human exposure levels are already high. More than 90 percent of us have it in our body and the question is: is it safe. Many scientists believe it can act like the hormone estrogen, and animal studies have linked it with breast, prostate and reproductive system problems and some cancers.

Several states are considering restricting Bisphenol A use, some manufacturers have begun promoting Bisphenol A-free baby bottles, and some stores are phasing out baby products containing the chemical.

The One Word For Both:



Deception (De*cep"tion) (?), n.
[F. déception, L. deceptio, fr. decipere, deceptum. See Deceive.]

1. The act of deceiving or misleading. South.
2. The state of being deceived or misled. "There is one thing relating either to the action or enjoyments of man in which he is not liable to deception." South.
3. That which deceives or is intended to deceive; false representation; artifice; cheat; fraud. "There was of course room for vast deception." Motley.

Synonyms -- Deception, Deceit, Fraud, Imposition. Deception usually refers to the act, and deceit to the habit of the mind; hence we speak of a person as skilled in deception and addicted to deceit. The practice of deceit springs altogether from design, and that of the worst kind; but a deception does not always imply aim and intention. It may be undesigned or accidental. An imposition is an act of deception practiced upon some one to his annoyance or injury; a fraud implies the use of stratagem, with a view to some unlawful gain or advantage.

It May Not Be A Cold

Tuesday, October 7, 2008

Clean the house, house dust-associated bacterial endotoxins have been shown to be associated with asthma severity, and a similar role has been suggested for fungal (1->3)-ß-D-glucans. Dust samples were collected from mattresses and from living room and bedroom floors, and endotoxin and (1->3)-ß-D-glucans were measured in dust extracts. The relations with mean daily PEF variability (Ampl%mean) were investigated by linear regression analysis, adjusting for dust mite allergen levels, presence of pets, and type of floor cover. In unadjusted analyses the levels of both endotoxin and (1->3)-ß-D-glucans per square meter of living room floor were significantly associated with PEF-variability. Adjusted analyses showed the same association for (1->3)-ß-D-glucans but not for endotoxin. Filters and all the dust collected on the filter, were extracted at room temperature with pyrogen-free distilled water containing 0.05% Tween-20 , and after centrifugation and collection of the supernatant, redissolved in an identical volume of the same medium (H2O-Tween) and extracted at 120° C to solubilize (1->3)-ß-D-glucans.

A supernatant was used to measure endotoxin in a chromogenic kinetic Limulus Amoebocyte Lysate (LAL) test, using one single lot of the LAL reagent. (1->3)-ß-D-glucans was measured in a second supernatant with a (1->3)-ß-D-glucans-specific inhibition enzyme immunoassay (EIA), using affinity-purified polyclonal rabbit anti-(1->3)-ß-D-glucans antibodies, and laminarin [a linear (1->3)-ß-D-glucans] as the coated antigen and calibration standard. Bedlam says, the major house dust mite allergen Dermatophagoides pteronyssinus (Der p1) was measured in the first extract, with a Der p1-specific, monoclonal antibody-based, sandwich EIA. Because H2O-Tween is not commonly used for extraction of Der p1, control experiments were performed with a series of duplicate house dust samples that were extracted with either H2O-Tween or with buffered saline.

All this to say, exposure to house-dust-associated (1->3)-ß-D-glucans in the home environment may increase peak flow variability in asthmatic children. Although (1->3)-ß-D-glucans can be derived from both plant and fungal material, and thus can not be used as a highly specific marker for mold growth, the here-reported association may be one of the major mechanisms accounting for the relation between dampness and fungal growth in the home environment, and respiratory morbidity.

Simpson 2008 Conviction

Sunday, October 5, 2008

*** Bedlam message to OJ - Hold you head up brother, a black man's pride is all that we can truly call 'ours'. Life treated you with all the blessing that the average brother could only dream of. Life also presented the disasters one face when dreams become nighmares. Brother I can't say right or wrong, good or bad, I'm not the one to make that judgement, I can say sometimes a brother has to do what he as to do, and that you did. OJ my prayers are with you. TAKE CARE

Avoid Common Investing Mistakes

Thursday, October 2, 2008

Bedlam don't know the financial status of you, Bedlam only knows Bedlam's Financial status. Wall Street actions always catch my attention because Bedlam got money tied there. Believe Me I Tell You, I have been watching like a hawk, Bedlam just want to pass some information Me got from the web about 'Avoid Common Investing Mistakes'

Five Typical Challenges

Almost all of us have made investing mistakes. The key is not to make the same ones twice. These mistakes can directly affect whether or not you achieve your desired goals. By repeating even just one mistake,
individual investors can quickly become their own worst enemy. Below are some common investor errors and some suggestions on how to sidestep them.

Starting Too Late (forget this)
The most common mistake investors make is waiting too long to initiate a longterm investment plan. The earlier you can start the investment process, the more likely it is that the plan will succeed. Thanks to the power of compounding, a small amount of money, wisely invested early on, can turn into a large sum over time. So try to avoid procrastinating and start investing today.

Lack of Diversification (pay a little attention to this)
By investing all of your money into just one asset class, industry, or company, you are placing all of your eggs into one basket—and this can be extremely risky. For example, at year-end 2006, nearly 9% of 401(k) plan participants held more than 80% of their account balances in their own company’s stock (according to the Employee Benefit Research Institute). It is better to combine a variety of investments, such as stocks, bonds, and cash, all of which are unlikely to move in the same direction at the same time. Your portfolio’s risk exposure should be lessened as a result.

Lack of Research (pay attention to this)
No matter what type of investment you plan to make, be sure to conduct the proper research. It is unwise to allocate your money to an investment you do not understand. There are a number of helpful resources that you can explore—ranging from public information to professional advice. Take advantage of these resources.

Unrealistic Expectations (pay attention to this too)
Many investments require time to grow. Investors often become frustrated with the early performance of their investments, decide to sell too quickly, and move the proceeds into other investments. This could result in knee-jerk reactions leading to too much trading, which is not only expensive, but also usually unnecessary. It is important to maintain a long-term view and to not be distracted by short-term results.

Chasing Past Performance and Overreacting to Market Fluctuations (Bedlam Bingo!!)
Yesterday’s hot stocks or mutual funds can become tomorrow’s worst. A good number of investors buy assets when they have reached their peak only to watch their performance suffer. It may be a good idea to choose investments with a history of good performance as well as quality management. Employing a dollar cost averaging strategy, which involves the purchase of securities, such as shares of mutual funds, in fixed
dollar amounts at regular intervals, can also be helpful. This strategy is maintained no matter what direction the market is moving and typically results in the investor being able to purchase more shares when prices are lower, and fewer shares when prices are higher, with the average price paid for each share obtained falling
somewhere in between.

This is always the fine print
Investors should consider the investment objectives, risks and charges of the Investment Company carefully before investing.
Take care, BEDLAM
