daddy,

Sometimes the old hymns were prescient:

"This is my Father's world, and to my listening ears
All nature sings, and round me rings the music of the spheres."

It was the first thing I thought of when I read your post about sound in space.

The first innovation in drug therapy for depression in over 30 years is a step closer to reality after an advisory panel at the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) recommended its approval Tuesday.

Developed by Johnson & Johnson’s pharmaceutical company, Janssen, esketamine is a nasal spray containing a similar chemical makeup to ketamine, a popular club drug and widely used anesthetic during the 80’s and 90’s.

To paraphrase Augustus McCrae, McCabe is the type of man who's easy to hang.

Captain Hate

You think? 60 Minutes was always Obama's go-to media outlet to get his story out when he was unable to avoid a scandal. I expect this interview will be choreographed to the point McCabe has notes on when to breath, blink.

If we used that standard we couldn't read or watch 90% of the things that come out in the media. There's also a nugget or two that comes out that helps with the overall story.

McCabe is at the core of the whole Russia scam. He and Sally Yates subverted the FISA process to get the warrant on Page. We already have the testimony that proves it. He started a counterintelligence investigation into Trump 8 days after Comey, who has given testimony that is in direct opposition to McCabe about numerous issues, without DOJ sign off. He has also accused Rosenstein of offering to wear a wire on Trump.

McCabe is a lying, duplicitous piece of shit. He was fired for lying and leaking. But I find it interesting that he is giving a national interview right when Mueller is reported to be winding up his investigation and will likely report he found no evidence at all of Trump Russia collusion.

There has to be a reason he's sticking his head up now.

Little Adam Schiff has prepared his own investigation, one that investigates people, not crimes. Though there is zero evidence that a crime has been committed — in fact, there's mounting evidence that Trump hasn't broken a law — Schiff is willing to use taxpayer-funded government resources on pure blind faith that they might uncover one.

>OK, Jack Straw, you were absolutely right that the 60 Minutes interview would be interesting!

Honestly, I don't expect anything new to be unveiled. We knew all of this already.

But now McCabe is finally coming forward to talk and much of what he will say is directly refuted by the Congressional testimony of others including Comey.

It sounds like we are getting to the fireworks stage where the rats will all turn on each other to save themselves.

Old Lurker

rse 9:09...

I scanned that piece and think the writer conflates true old fashioned "balloon framing" with modern wood framing and then equates the two from a fire standpoint.

"Balloon Framing" in the old days when very long native wood was available often entailed using 20' real 2x4's to stretch from the foundation up to the plates holding the rafters in a two storey house. Then they would nail a horizontal "ledger" around the inside (insetting it back but no through the vertical 20' 2x4s) onto which they would set the floor joists for the second floor. This design did in fact create an open vertical chase all the way from the basement up to the attic, and sure enough any half respecting fire in the basement would appear in the attic promptly. Poof.

But for decades now those long 2x4's are hard to find and are too expensive, so today they build a foundation and immediately lay floor joists and plywood from outside edge to outside edge of the foundation. Then they build walls for the first floor with top plates and bottom plates and tilt those up on the first floor. Then they repeat that for all the floors. The fire benefit is that no space in the walls extends farther that from floor to ceiling for each individual floor, and some codes even require horizontal "fire stops" halfway up each wall created no "chimney space" taller than 1/2 of a floor height.

All those apartment building shown in the article and all houses are built this way and have been for decade. "Chimneys" in the framing are a big no-no, even small cracks and open holes for wires and pipes.

Old Lurker

Mark, Mark, Mark. "he should not only resign immediately but come before Congress and answer questions"

That's the ticket!

HaHaHa.

Old Lurker

Truth from Buckeye "Living and dying by the quarterly report drives lots of stupid behavior."

And that in turn began when quick jumps in share prices started to contribute more of the total return to the stockholder than did the dividends earned from making and selling real products over the long term...then that led to more shares being owned by "funds" than by little old ladies who paid attention, and those funds in turn were run by hotshots who shared in the quarter by quarter spikes.

Rinse and repeat, and you get us where we are today.
