New Study Links Canned Soup To Heart Disease

[A new study published in the journal Circulation is the first of its kind to find a direct link between higher BPA exposure in healthy adults and a greater risk of developing heart disease in the future. "This study takes a lot of the question out of, 'Does BPA really affect heart disease risk? Is this is a real effect?'" says BPA expert Laura Vandenberg, PhD, a postdoctoral fellow of biology at the Center for Developmental and Regenerative Biology at Tufts University in Massachusetts. "This research suggests so, and it shouldn't be ignored."


In the latest study, researchers looked at urine samples of about 750 initially healthy adults who later developed cardiovascular disease and compared them to samples from 860 adults who remained heart disease free. "They simply looked at urine collections 10 years ago and checked to see if people developed cardiovascular disease within a 10-year period," explains Vandenberg, who was not involved with this study.


The initially healthy people who wound up developing heart disease had higher BPA concentrations in their urine at the beginning of the 10-year period, compared to those who stayed heart disease free. "If BPA itself is directly responsible for this increase in risk, the size of effect is difficult to estimate," says senior study author Tamara Galloway, PhD, professor of the University of Exeter. "However, it adds to the evidence that BPA may be an additional contributor to heart disease risk, alongside the major risk factors, such as smoking, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol levels."

Many researchers have long believed that BPA's most damaging effects harm developing fetuses because they are more sensitive to hormone-disrupting chemicals than adults. "This study suggests that is not a correct premise," Vandenberg says. "Adults are sensitive to this chemical, and probably other chemicals. There probably is no safe period of exposure."

The latest research comes on the heels of a lab study published in December in the online journal PLoS ONE that found even small doses of BPA, ones we're commonly exposed to, could lead to heart arrhythmia, erratic beating that could cause sudden cardiac death.] -source: health.msn.com

The Intergalatic Stormtrooper Shuffle

If it wasn't before, Canada's University of Lethbridge is on the map thanks to New Media student Matthew Lunde. He put his skills to use along with some motion capture technology and came up with the 'Stormtrooper Shuffle' which is described as a parody of the 'Party Rock Anthem'. The video's been doing pretty good on Youtube and at the time of this blog entry has 197,185 views. I think it's safe to say that he probably got an 'A+' on this project. Check out the video:

Unsigned Greats presents Smash or Trash: 4/25/12

So many people hit me off with their projects I thought it would only be fair to share their material with others and have it critiqued by my readers. My only warning is there may or may not be some extremely wack stuff here, but on the other hand you might come across the next big thing, so be patient and fair. After you check things out, let me know what you think. Send me a tweet letting me know if the project is a smash or if it's trash. The whole point is to give the artist some feedback on their work. 
 Let's go!

Deion vs Pilar Round 3!

Deion Sanders is going through some ruff times with Pilar Sanders his estranged wife. I guess those two are going through a nasty divorce or something.

All I know is he got hit with a misdemeanor simple assault charge which could cost him up to $500 (which is only a drop in his deep deep bucket) but the real concern is whether or not all this bad publicity regarding his fights (oh yeah this isn't the 1st, 2nd or 3rd time they've been in the news for fighting) with Pilar will have a negative impact on his professional life. He is supposed to be a part of the NFL network's draft coverage, but something tells me if he keeps fighting with ol girl he might be cut from the draft coverage.

Tmot Tuesdays: Pulpit Pimpin'?!?!?!?!

Yes we're back and in full effect! Big brother TMOT in my opinion is kind of taking it easy on the coonery and utter disrespect towards the sacredness of God's house in the video he shares. I'm sure you're all familiar with the prosperity sermons and pastors whose sole focus is on a prosperity message that's the cornerstone of their personal riches doctrine. I've heard and seen many prosperity preachers but this takes the cake these people take it to a new "low" (if they go any lower they'll be in hell.) Check out the video below:

Man Watches Porn, Shocked To She Wife Starring In It

This story right here takes the cake! The old folks used to say that if you watch dirty movies something bad would happen to you, but I'm sure this isn't quite what they meant. A fellow going by the name Ramadan said "out of curiosity" (yeah right) he watched porn for the first time and noticed the woman in it looked familiar. Well, 11 videos later he realized the lady doing all kinds of nasty things was his wife who he'd been married to for 16 years.

So what does she do when her husband is down because of the videos? She delivers another blow and tells him she never loved him...OUCH! Click here for more!

Counselor Charged With Soliciting Sex From Underage Girl

As if the blog entry title isn't sick enough, the underage girl who was solicited for sex was living in a youth care facility that actually takes in girls who have been exploited for sex and used for prostitution. What a way to blow a chance for young girls who were most likely forced into the sex trade to see that all men aren't jerks.

WTF Files: Perv Films Young Girls With "Spy Pen"

This is just another sign of people losing their everlasting minds. A 26 year old choir teacher named Aldrin Jayson Nicolas is in some serious trouble for being a perv.

During that time, Nicolas allegedly put a camera, which deputies described as a "spy pen," to produce videos of girls ages 13-17 undressing. The girls found the pen, who turned it over to other adults in the program. The adults notified the Sheriff's Office."They found this pen in the bathroom and they didn't know who did it," Skalland said, adding that Nicolas was cooperative when investigators approached him.He was arrested Tuesday.Nicolas has been suspended from his job with Vivace. He also taught choir at Salinas High School, but has been placed on administrative leave by the school district. Deputies said there is no evidence at this time that there are any victims at the high school." source: Watsonville Patch

Zimmerman's Counsel Quit

This Trayvon Martin case has more twists and turns then movies on Lifetime. The word now from the case is that Zimmerman's counsel have quit the case because he's pulled a Houdini move and has disappeared. Check out the video below:
"As of now we are withdrawing as counsel for Mr. Zimmerman," Craig Sonner, one of his attorneys, told reporters outside the Seminole County Courthouse in Sanford, Fla. "We've lost contact with him. Up to this point, we've had contact with him every day. He's gone on his own. I'm not sure what he's doing or who he's talking to, but at this point we're withdrawing as counsel. If he wants us to come back as counsel, he will contact us." -huffington post

8th Grade Teacher Fired Over Trayvon Martin Fund Raiser

It's hard to find quality teachers who actually enjoy teaching these days. It's even harder to find a teacher who cares for the academic well-being of children so much that they pay for things out of their own pocket (on a teachers salary) all for the benefit of their students.
Well, one 8th grade teacher is that rare find who has also won Teacher of the Year a couple of times. Her reward for all of this? Termination....read below:
"When Brooke Harris contacted us last week, her first concern was not her career—it was her students. She worried that she had let them down by not fighting harder for her job. She worried that their essays on Trayvon Martin would no longer be included in the school newspaper. She worried that the superintendent in charge of their education would continue to underestimate them. We’re worried about Brooke’s students too. Last month Brooke Harris’ eighth-grade class asked her about the “kid who was killed over some skittles;” she seized the opportunity to bring her students’ lived experiences into the classroom—a strategy we and other experts advocate.

Brooke’s students identify with Trayvon Martin. Many of them are African American. Many have been stopped by police who thought they looked suspicious. In fact, her students engaged so deeply with the issue that they asked to take it beyond essays and class discussions—they wanted to take action to help Trayvon’s family. They, like many students across the nation, wanted to show their support by wearing hoodies. Each student who participated would pay $1.

Proceeds would be donated to Trayvon’s family. Again, Brooke saw a teachable moment. She and her students began the formal process of organizing a school event. Students wrote persuasive letters to the principal and superintendent. Brooke and a co-worker filed the necessary paperwork. The principal immediately signed off on the fundraiser. Superintendent Cassell was less enthusiastic. She refused to approve the proposal, despite having supported many other “dress down” fundraisers. Brooke’s students took the disappointment in stride, but asked to present their idea to Cassell in person. And that’s when things got weird..." -tolerance.org
