Time for a funny

Members of the Massachusetts Caucus of Women Legislators are calling for additional steps to combat sexual harassment on Beacon Hill  — including mandatory training.  For those from other states, Beacon Hill is the site of the Massachusetts legislature in Boston.

One irate lawmaker complained that mandatory training was a waste of hard-earned taxpayer dollars as he was already quite adept at it.

The current composition of the legislature is 123 Democratic 34 Republican 1 Independent 2 Vacancies.

    I couldn’t find your email address, so I’ll just leave this here.

    They connected the circulatory systems of two mice, one with human pathogenic beta-amyloid and the other with no beta-amyloid genes. The latter developed brain beta-amyloid plaques and functional changes.

    It makes me wonder where human Alzheimer’s plaque protein is synthesized. There should be a crash priority program to identify human chimeras whose CNS’s express only protective beta-amyloid alleles but who express pathogenic alleles outside the CNS. Finding the pathogenic form in brain plaques would rewrite the book on Alzheimer’s disease. For all we know it comes from the bones and evolved to fight osteoporosis.
