It’s gotten to the point that whether Cosby is guilty, or not, of sexual assault, is not the issue!
Let me explain.
These allegations are from thirty to fifty years old and the reason it didn’t blow up at the time was supposedly because the women were too embarrassed to come forward back in those years, and also due to the backlash they might face by accusing a famous star of rape! (Sorry ….., sexual assault!)
However, there is another woman (We will call her Ms. Blue) who made these same allegations in 2005 and was called a “liar” by Cosby’s lawyers.
Now she is suing Bill for what his lawyer said nine years ago!!!!!!
Bill, not his lawyer!
Seems she was too embarrassed to “sue” at the time……………………., or does she smell MONEY in the air now?
Let’s face it kids, even thought he truth to the whole matter probably lies somewhere between the extremes, the whole thing stinks!
Hallmark Cards Inc. has removed blue and silver gift wrap from circulation after a customer complained that she saw a swastika embedded in the design. The Kansas City, Missouri-based company alerted retailers to the problem Monday after receiving a complaint Sunday night from a Walgreen’s customer in Northridge, California.
That’s right, boys and girls, all it takes now-a-days in these politically correct times is ONE disgruntled, misguided person!
Do ya remember that Canadian woman from down East who murdered a bunch of husbands? (I can’t remember if it was for money, or just for sport!)
Now we have news that a Japanese woman is facing trial for poisoning her husband with cyanide, and she may have also murdered as many as six other boyfriends, authorities say.
Five of them died when they ate poisoned soup, the other one died of a skull fracture …………., when he wouldn’t eat the soup!
(Reports suggest money was a factor, and Kakehi is rumored to have collected as much as $8 million from her dead paramours.)
AND FINALLY: (We thought this was important eno9ugh to re-print the entire thing! -Ed.)
British scientists have developed an ingredient that makes foods more filling, and say initial tests in overweight people showed that it helped prevent them gaining more weight.
Propionate is produced naturally when fiber in the diet is fermented by microbes in the gut, but the new ingredient, inulin-propionate ester (IPE), provides much larger amounts of propionate than people can generate in a normal diet.”Molecules like propionate stimulate the release of gut hormones that control appetite, but you need to eat huge amounts of fiber to achieve a strong effect,” said Gary Frost of Imperial’s department of medicine, who led the study.
“We wanted to find a more efficient way to deliver propionate to the gut.”
The team found that those given IPE ate 14 percent less on average and had higher concentrations of appetite-reducing hormones in their blood.
In a second phase, 60 overweight volunteers took part in a 24-week study in which half were given IPE powder to add to their food and half given inulin.
Only one out of 25 volunteers given IPE who completed the study gained more than 3.0 percent of their body weight, compared with six out of 24 given inulin. None of the IPE group gained more than 5.0 percent of their body weight, compared with four in the inulin group.
After 24 weeks, the IPE group also had less fat in their abdomens and livers compared with the inulin group.
Frost said that while the findings were only from a small, early-stage study, they offered “encouraging signs” that IPE might help prevent weight gain in overweight people.
He and his team are working with Imperial Innovations, a technology commercialization company focused on developing promising British academic research, on taking IPE to market.
“We’re exploring what kinds of foods it could be added to, but something like bread or fruit smoothies might work well,” he said.
