Peanut butter test helps to diagnose Alzheimer’s disease


A dollop of peanut butter and a ruler can be used to confirm a diagnosis of early stage Alzheimer’s disease, University of Florida Health researchers have found.

Jennifer Stamps, a graduate student in the UF McKnight Brain Institute Center for Smell and Taste, and her colleagues reported the findings of a small pilot study in the Journal of the Neurological Sciences.

Stamps came up with the idea of using peanut butter to test for smell sensitivity while she was working with Dr. Kenneth Heilman…UF College of Medicine’s department of neurology…She noticed while shadowing in Heilman’s clinic that patients were not tested for their sense of smell. The ability to smell is associated with the first cranial nerve and is often one of the first things to be affected in cognitive decline…

She thought of peanut butter because, she said, it is a “pure odorant” that is only detected by the…

Syria – The Beginning As Per an Activist

Syria – The Beginning As Per an Activist

Friends of Syria

NO, it didn’t start peaceful and it was not spontaneous and it was definitely not because of a few children arrested by the security forces whom removed their nails. All of that is ‘exaggerated’ if not totally fabricated. 

It was a pre-planned event that would see the collapse of the last secular state in the region to allow the emerging of an apartheid entity based on religious belief: ‘the Jewish state of Israel’. The entity that needs sectarian and ethnic based neighbors to justify its presence in its shape; any secular state would be an existential threat for a ‘Jewish State’.

Use one of the oldest tricks in the books to enforce the plan: The infiltrators sniping at protesters and at security forces at the same time to create chaos that would lead to a ‘revolution’, call it an
‘Arab Spring’.

And when this very well plan fails, resort to…

Syria militants get chemical training in Afghanistan by Christians

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov
The development comes as Russian diplomatic sources announced earlier that the August sarin gas attack in Syria was a special operation of Saudi Arabian intelligence conducted with support from a radical Islamist militant group operating near Damascus.”
Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has cited reports saying that a number of countries are training Syrian militants in Afghanistan to use chemical weapons.

“Some reports indicate that [al-Qaeda-linked ] al-Nusra Front is planning to smuggle toxic compounds and relevant specialists into Iraqi territory to stage terrorist attacks there this time,” Lavrov said as quoted in an RT report on Friday.

The top Russian diplomat further explained that the intent of the chemical training is to put the skill to use in new false flag operations in Syria.

He noted, however, that the training was being conducted in Afghan territories that are not under the control of the central government in Kabul.

Lavrov made the remarks following a meeting with his Kuwaiti counterpart Mohammad Sabah al-Salem al-Sabah, further cautioning against any potential provocations in Syria to disrupt the ongoing chemical weapons disarmament operation being conducted by experts from the UN and the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW).

“We are standing for conducting the work in a precise manner in accordance with the roadmap and without any hindrances. We warn against any possible provocation,” added the Russian Foreign Minister.

The development comes as Russian diplomatic sources announced earlier that the August sarin gas attack in Syria was a special operation of Saudi Arabian intelligence conducted with support from a radical Islamist militant group operating near Damascus.

Following the fatal chemical attack on August 21, the United States threatened a military strike against Syria under the pretext that the Syrian government was behind the incident. Damascus categorically rejected the allegation.

However, the Security Council approved a resolution on September 27 supporting a Russia-US deal to destroy Syria’s chemical weapons by mid-2014. The deal was reached after Moscow offered Syria to place its chemical weapons arsenal under international supervision and Damascus accepted the proposal.

The first members of OPCW-UN inspectors have started their mission to oversee the elimination.

Reports say that 27 inspectors are scheduled to visit more than 20 different sites in Syria. The sites reportedly include areas held by the militants.

On October 9, OPCW Director General Ahmet Uzumcu praised Syria’s cooperation with the team of inspectors, saying, “The cooperation has been quite constructive and I would say the Syrian authorities have been cooperative.”

Arrested Drunk PIA pilot Captain Irfan Faiz, 54, held by UK police to appear before court Friday

 A pilot for Pakistan International Airlines (PIA), who was arrested at a British airport on suspicion of being drunk is due to appear at Leeds Magistrates Court today (Friday).

Captain Irfan Faiz, 54, faces the charges of carrying out an activity ancillary to an aviation function while impaired by drink.

The airline said the pilot had been immediately grounded and said that if he was convicted of any offence in Britain, he would be sacked.

The exact circumstances of his arrest on Wednesday evening at Leeds Bradford airport in northern England were not clear, although the pilot was not thought to be flying at the time.

“At about 10pm last night police were called to Leeds Bradford International Airport where they arrested an airline pilot on suspicion of carrying out an activity ancillary to an aviation function while impaired by drink,” police said.

“The 54-year-old man, from Pakistan, is currently in custody.”

The airport refused to comment beyond saying it was aware of the incident and it was being dealt with by police.

But a spokesman for PIA, Pakistan’s national carrier, told AFP: “We grounded the pilot, Irfan Faiz, immediately after receiving information about his arrest from Britain.

“The pilot will face legal proceedings in the UK and he will be sacked if convicted there.

“The PIA will not provide any legal assistance to Faiz and he will himself arrange such an assistance there.”

Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif announced plans earlier this month to sell off a 26 percent stake in the ailing national carrier, one of the poorest performing state-run companies in the country.
