Political Psychology Survey

Some of you may recall we ran a link last spring for a psychological survey being done at NYU.  They are researching how different things affect people’s choice of a candidate in this election.  Here’s more information from NYU:

“A research team from the Psychology Department at New York University, headed by Professor Yaacov Trope and supported by the National Science Foundation, is investigating the cognitive causes of voting behavior, political preferences, and candidate evaluations throughout the course of the 2008 U.S. Presidential election. This stage of the study focuses on the information people use to inform evaluations during the last few weeks before the election. They seek respondents of all political leanings from all over the country (and from the rest of the world) to complete a 15-minute questionnaire, the responses to which will be completely anonymous…”

I’ll be reposting this link every two weeks to provide them with some input for their research.  Please consider aiding them with this research.

A break in HIV research in a Texas laboratory that may stop HIV infection

There may be a break in the HIV virus in Texas laboratory.

Dr. Paul and Dr. Miguel are talkign about destroying HIV permanently with loading immune system with new breakthrough. They discovered a weak spot in HIV in a key protein in its structure that doesn’t mutate. They strike it with something called an abzyme. This could be used to control HIV in people that already have it, prevent infection for those at risk of catching virus, and stop the virus from mutating. It has held up in lab testing and animal testing. they still need funding for human trials, this is where problems happen, because clinical trial are expensive. This is where they may find a preventative vaccine for the virus that causes AIDS.

Don’t even ask about funding from the Bush Administration on this breakthrough. they fight progress on anything helpful to the American people.
