Vitamin C Treatment for Avian Flu

The symptoms of avian flu include hemorrhages under the skin, and bleeding from the nose and gums. These are also classical symptoms of clinical scurvy, which means a critical vitamin C deficiency is present.

Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid) is a very important essential nutrient. It is found only in Fruits and Vegetables and is highest in fresh, uncooked foods. Cooking can destroy much of this vitamin from foods.

Massive doses of vitamin C work against infectious diseases because we are throwing away the vitamin C for the extra electrons carried. These extra electrons neutralize the free radicals (molecules missing electrons) that mediate all inflammations and cause the symptoms and deaths from these infectious diseases. Doses of ascorbate which are massive enough to force a reducing redox potential into tissues affected by the disease will always neutralize the free radicals.

Homo sapiens, guinea pigs, monkeys, bats, some fish and many birds, do not produce their own vitamin C. The rest of the animal kingdom synthesizes their own vitamin C. For them, ascorbic acid is a hormone, not a dietary-acquired vitamin. Animals employ different organs to produce vitamin C. Some birds and reptiles use their kidneys and perching birds and mammals make vitamin C in their liver.

Recommended intakes of C for men is 90 milligrams per day and for women is 75 milligrams per day.
A diet that includes five servings of fruits and vegetables a day should supply about 200 milligrams per day of vitamin C.

conspiracy against vitamin CLinus Pauling suggested in the early 1970s that the optimum daily intake may be about 2,000 milligrams of vitamin C and that everyone should get at least 200-250 mg/day.

He noted that "the first 250 mg is more important than any later 250 mg. The first 250 mg leads you up to the level where the blood is saturated.

You can achieve a higher concentration in the blood by a larger intake, but you get much better improvement for the first 250 mg than for additional grams."

The Linus Pauling Institute of Medicine, founded in 1973, is dedicated to "orthomolecular medicine."
The institute's largest corporate donor has been Hoffmann-La Roche, the pharmaceutical giant that produces most of the world's vitamin C.
On the other hand, Hoffmann-La Roche has also been accused of "monopolizing" the production and distribution of the antiviral drug known as Oseltavimir, which is considered to be the primary medicament used to combat avian flu, sinc it was the only drug company authorized to manufacture it.
On October 20, 2005, after years of pressure from organizations and world leaders, Hoffmann-La Roche decided to release the license to allow other companies to manufacture Oseltavimir worldwide.

Bill Gates talks about Google

Bill Gates comments on Google in Computing:

'We need to surprise people and do a search that is way better than Google, and we are very on top of that. The idea of development tools, a natural interface, productivity software - Google is not in any of those categories. People are acting as if they will magically be in these other categories with something more than a "me too" offering. It is kind of fun that people underestimate what we are going to do here.'

'Google is great, they are smart people, the press should continue to feed their arrogance as much as possible,'

'They say they are going to organise the world's information. Well, we don't think that is our job. We think you need to get tools to editors and subject experts to let them organise the world's information. There is a bit of a philosophy difference here. The only sure winner is the consumer.'


Fine Words.
We all consumers sincerely hope that you live up to them.

However, in another interview a week before, with the Israeli daily Yediot Ahronot, Gates was quoted as saying:

"Maybe when you succeed there is always someone who will oppose you."

(Talking about Microsoft, not Google)

"We are not afraid of Google, but there is intense competition between us. Google is our main competitor, brilliant people work there, but Internet search engines are still in a terrible state compared to where they could be"

Israel is one of the world's leaders in high-tech products, which currently accounts for two-thirds of Israeli exports.
Large corporations like Microsoft, Motorola and Intel, have sizeable research operations in Israel.
Google has recently placed advertisements in Israeli newspapers looking for engineers for its Ireland-based operations.

Japanese Bitch Wife

Demon Wife

A Blog from a japanese 32-year-old salaryman known by the nickname "Kazuma", who posts the daily indignities and humilliations he suffers from his wife, has gotten him in only four months 1.34 million yen in awards from his blog hosting service.

Cyber Agent, the Japanese Internet advertising firm that launched Ameba Blog, came up with a monetary prize system that "lets bloggers compete among themselves."

Besides, Ameba Books, has decided to print Kazuma's popular online diary. The book has sold more than 50,000 copies so far.

Kazuma explained that he joined Ameba Blog for the money because his wife sweeps away all of his salary.

Kazuma's Blog has gotten 3.2 million hits so far.

The audience ranges from men in similar situations to a disturbingly rising number of women aspiring to be as bitchy as her wife, to the point that now there are weekly articles in women's magazines and TV shows instructing women on how to inflict both mental and physical harm upon their husbands. Being a bitchy wife has become something fashionable in today's Japan.

60 years olds as mentally sharp as 22 year olds

Researchers at the The Beckman Institute for Advanced Science and Technology at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaignsaid found some 60-years-olds to be as mentally sharp as 22-year-olds.

Performance and brain-activation are predicted by changes in brain structure, specifically by the volume of white matter connecting the right and left hemispheres of the frontal lobes.

The study can be found at the quarterly journal Psychology and Aging.
