This article has been showing up under the radar on various sites for the last few days, yet there hasn’t been mention of it in any major media that I’m aware of.

It’ll be very interesting to see how this research fares. It’s very unlikely that any drug company will fund the further research needed to see if this is really the cure or not, because they won’t make any money off it. This will primarily have to come from university research and private funding.

EDIT: Another article, more cautionary and heavier on the technobabble. Let me reiterate, I do not think there’s any conspiracy here to suppress this potential cure, it’s just interesting that it hasn’t made bigger news than it has.

“He’s tried this two times – it’s failed twice,” the California Democrat said. “I asked him at the White House, ‘Mr. President, why do you think this time it’s going to work?’ And he said, ‘Because I told them it had to.'”

I’m at the Detroit auto show with my work department, and I have to say I’m not that impressed so far. For the most part they’re all car-shaped, in the usual car colors.

The only standputs so far have been the GM Volt, Kia something that looks like an Enterprise shuttle, Toyota FJ Cruiser, and the Saab Aero X is amazing. Oh, and anything by Ferrari and Maserati.

Lots of hot guys too.

The Top 10 Best and Worst Companies for Call Center Service

Number 2 Worst Company? COMCAST

“Need we say more? While checking for the most hated corporate entities, it was found that Comcast had the dubious distinction of turning up most number of times. Rather, there was a stiff competition between Comcast, AOL and Vonage.

This is one company that never seems to learn. Not only is it way behind when it comes to providing good services, its customer service is appalling. The reasons are not far to seek. So let’s begin with the napping Comcast technician. The poor guy slept off after waiting on hold for an excruciating and obviously mind numbing 90 minutes to his own office. And what does Comcast do? In a knee jerk reaction, it fired the poor guy.

And then there was the case of the customer who called the company several times to ask questions about her bill and her service, with which she was not happy. Instead of helping her, the customer service worker changed her name to, guess what… Bitch Dog.”
