US election: Ted Cruz wins Iowa Republican vote (BBC)

On the Democrat side of this political theatre Clinton and Saunders are 1% apart and the also ran has stopped running.

for Republicans it was a Cruz, Trump then Rubio trailing followed by the Also Rans, of whom the money burning is smoking to a free fall stop. (Also Ran, as in horse racing)

 

now, for something with less hot air and more substance: calories the stuff of foods.

  • Cynthia Graber and Nicola Twilley have written a very excellent article about food and why what we say we know is total bollocks. 
  • Why the Calorie is Broken

 

Food, that is, things which are edible, provides energy, vitamins, nutrients, protiens and fiber.

Cooking foods helps to break them down, rendering them more edible and safe to eat, as well as doing a lot of the heavy lifting of digestion.

Energy gains are a mix of what you eat in terms of calories in and the energy you expend in using them up – but also how much you have to eat to to maximize the nutrient part we use and the filler part that we just expel.

the calorie is a unit of energy, which is where it becomes incorrect – it’s the absorption of what we are getting out of the food.

GIGO

garbage in garbage out, as for data, so for food, and food is what we literally make our bodies of – sleep and the functions of the body of doing the maintenance and repair.

Our immune system are our nanobots. at least, that what the nanobots will first be programmed to replicate, I expect.

from the land of the first test tube babies, comes the groundwork for designer babies, Starship Troopers! Khaaaaaaaan, eh?

we ignore the ignoble eugenics past and hope for a better tomorrow from the best of us today… sounds like the same shit just on a different side of the pile.

Actually the interesting item that was on the news today was this one, there are 2 movies, one as a bio-pic and one as a biomovie in a movie about (meta-tainment) about a television news achor who, in 1974, referred to the station’s commitment to blood n guts reporting, shot herself in the head in a television first.

The station immediately secured the tapes and apparently turned them over to the family. This was 1974 and while utterly sensational, was regional television.

Christine Chubbuck – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

She died by suicide during a live television broadcast. …. That morning’s talk show guest waited across the studio while Chubbuck sat at the news anchor’s desk.

in 1976, a movie about television news was released, in which an anchor threatens and rants he’s mad as hell, and viewers do the same

the monday morning washline was the Original Social Media, after all eh?

in the movie, the news, honest and rude merged with the entertainment branch, planned and lewd – media paying groups to submit their own recordings of crimes to meet broadcast deadlines.

it could never happen… the media isn’t that corruptible? viewers aren’t so…

Gravity

Gladiators? LIKE

Public hanging in the town square to broadcast executions, CNN turned war into showtime.

if it bleeds it leads, and humans seems to enjoy this sanctimony of suffering, from the comfort and saftey of the newsreader glow, on a comfy couch and too little nutrients in too much food, and then faux raging over social media about social awareness, comforted by having done one’s part.
