Engineers Grow Pancreatic 'Organoids' That Mimic the Real Thing

Researchers from MIT have developed a new way to grow tiny replicas of the pancreas, using either healthy or cancerous pancreatic cells. They believe that their "specialized gel" could also be useful for studying lung, colorectal, and other cancers, including how potential cancer drugs affect tumors and their environment. The findings have been published in the journal Nature Materials. MIT reports: Using a specialized gel that mimics the extracellular environment surrounding the pancreas, the r...

He described the eight-inch (20-centimeter)…Read more...

Was Libertarian candidate Jo Jorgensen a 'spoiler' for Trump?

Results reveal Jorgensen’s vote share was higher than the Trump-Biden margins in some states – but did she really take votes from Trump?When it became increasingly clear that a handful of battleground states would decide the winner in 2020’s US presidential election, many were struck by the razor-thin margins that emerged.

As election nears, what should a good libertarian do?

SACRAMENTO – At a libertarian convention years ago, one of the party’s candidates started saying, “When I’m president of the United States.” I chuckled and responded: “Well, that isn’t going to happen.” He didn’t seem pleased by my candor, but we all know the LP candidate had zero chance of ever sitting behind the Resolute Desk. After former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson won the LP nomination in 2016, libertarian activists thought it was their year to put the party on the map. Well, that was the ...

Jo Jorgensen deserves to be heard

Jo Jorgensen has better ideas than Trump, Biden: John Stossel

The media obsess about Trump/Biden, but another candidate will be on every state ballot: Libertarian Party nominee Jo Jorgensen. Dr. Jorgensen, a psychology lecturer at Clemson University, is very different from Donald Trump and Joe Biden. Instead of promising government solutions, she tells people, “You can spend your money better than the politicians.” I like that. I start with COVID-19. Libertarians are skeptical of government action, but a pandemic may be the rare situation when government s...

The two parties have failed America: Mimi Robson

Why should Californians give up on the old parties? Because they’ve failed us! In this year’s presidential election we don’t have to decide between two big-spending old white men, neither of which seem to have our interests in mind when determining the direction of the country. We now have a third serious choice. I know that sounds too simple, but it’s something we can truly do. We can finally elect a Libertarian for president and Dr. Jo Jorgensen is the candidate that can make that happen. She’...

Jo Jorgensen offers Americans a third option for president

We have a choice! Next presidential election, we don’t have to decide between two big-spending candidates, neither of whom has expressed much interest in limited government. Now, we have a third serious choice. This week, Dr. Jo Jorgensen, a psychology lecturer at Clemson University, won the Libertarian Party’s presidential nomination. OK, I won’t delude myself — a libertarian is unlikely to become president. But Jorgensen’s platform is a refreshing change. She correctly points out that governme...

The truth about 'I'm with her'

On Saturday night, the Libertarian Party formally nominated as its 2020 presidential candidate Jo Jorgensen, a psychology lecturer at Clemson University. In celebration, Jorgensen promptly took to Twitter to "repurpose" Hillary's Clinton's 2016 "I'm With Her" slogan as her own. On Sunday, the slogan was trending as Libertarians promoted it and self-described Clinton supporters pushed back.

Argument analysis: Court skeptical that a lawyer may unilaterally countermand client’s instruction to file a criminal appeal

Following Tuesday morning’s argument in Garza v. Idaho, it seems more likely than not that petitioner Gilberto Garza Jr. will get the specific relief he seeks: the reinstatement of his appeal from convictions entered under a plea agreement that contained a waiver of his right to appeal. Most of the justices seemed skeptical of Idaho’s broadest claim, that his lawyer’s unilateral decision to disregard Garza’s instruction to appeal could not constitute ineffective assistance of counsel because Gar...
