Sounds Make Memories Stick During Sleep
Hearing certain sounds during slumber can spur learning, according to research detailed at the Cognitive Neuroscience Society’s annual meeting in Montreal
By Ingrid Wickelgren
MONTREAL—A good night’s sleep, or even just a nap, can be an aid to memory. Psychologists have known for years that sleep solidifies what we’ve learned during the day, transforming tenuous associations into stable ones. Learning while you snooze seems supremely efficient, and so people have long dreamed of co-opting this process so that their dozing brain shores up what matters to them—say, material they’ve studied for a test or a talk, or verbiage in a foreign language they want to master. But until now there has been little support for the notion that studying in your sleep is useful. Psychology graduate student John Rudoy at Northwestern University in Illinois reported findings here on Monday at the Cognitive Neuroscience Society 2010 annual meeting that hint at a way to do that.

This is an excerpt from a message from Harry Reid addressing the TV ad attacks put out by a republican senatorial candidate. I am not a supporter of Harry Reid but I do support healthcare/insurance reform and the points covered here clearly explains the facts and reasons for reform.
Yesterday a Republican running for the Senate launched a TV ad attacking Harry Reid for supporting health insurance reform, calling it “government run health care.” The spot recycles the same tired insurance company talking points we’ve heard over the past year.
LIE #1: Health insurance reform is “one-size-fits-all government run health care”
TRUTH: If families have coverage and like their plan they can keep it, and are protected against insurance company abuses.
LIE #2: We think ‘Washington’ knows best
TRUTH: Families in Nevada and around the country know best, that’s why the Senate bill gives them more insurance choices.
LIE #3: The Senate’s ‘big government’ health care plan will raise taxes
TRUTH: Right now families pay more than $1,000 each year to cover people who don’t have health insurance – it’s a hidden tax and reforming insurance eliminates it by giving every American access to quality, affordable coverage. Read the rest of this entry »

Even before the new Healthcare bill is passed… Obama is confidently and arrogantly jumpstarting the plan to save money on healthcare. And this particular avenue of saving money is called RATIONING. It SHOULD be a sign to him that Government funded healthcare is problematic. Either he’s not intelligent enough to understand this or he DOESN’T CARE. He has higher (more personal) agendas.

Days after a government task force radically changed its guidelines for using mammograms to screen for breast cancer, another critical preventive test — Pap smears – is under the microscope, heightening concern that both might be a first step down a slippery slope toward health care rationing.
On Monday, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force recommended that doctors delay mammography screening for breast cancer until the age of 50. The recommendation goes against the American Cancer Society’s long-held position that women receive their first mammogram by the age of 40 and follow up with yearly mammograms until the age of 74.
Breast cancer is the leading cancer in women and the second-leading cause of cancer death in women. Read the rest of this entry »
