Biden Blooper

President Joe Biden stumbled into a confusing discussion on Friday about supporting the idea of defunding the FBI.

“I sure in hell don’t think we should be funding the FBI either,” he said during his speech, without correcting his comment.


Shir-Raz, the journalist who broke the story about the internal meeting, said the delay in reporting the results included not sharing the data with the MoH expert panel

Emmanuel Mignot wins Breakthrough Prize for discovering cause of narcolepsy

Mignot demonstrated that orexin, which promotes wakefulness and blocks REM sleep, was absent in the brains of human patients with narcolepsy. Further work from his lab would show that human narcolepsy is an autoimmune disorder in which some 70,000 orexin-producing neurons in the hypothalamus are destroyed by the body’s own immune system.
