Hope this opens and plays OK. Truly mind bending stuff from the US Navy. Excellent 4 minute video approved by the US Navy:

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------




Subject: UAV Carrier Operations





This is truly history in the making. The aircraft being launched from the
deck of the aircraft carrier is a UAV. The Navy has been developing this
aircraft for almost 15 years The "pilots" are the guys on the deck with the
flight controls strapped to their arms.

For anyone of that bent, here is a list of sites that offer access to heaps of research papers of a scholarly nature.

http://roddymacleod.wordpress.com/2011/11/...-free-websites/

(I have not given any of these sites a test run yet but thought I'd post the link before I lost it.).

The usual way I keep an eye on new research stuff is to rely an inquisitive bloggers to filter and aggregate new stuff like

http://paul.kedrosky.com/

or

http://www.bakadesuyo.com/

or

http://blogs.discovermagazine.com/notrocketscience/

To name but three of my regular haunts.

Anyone else got any other way-kwel aggregators of dorkish info (like yeah)?

I watched the 60 mins piece on the anti tnf for AD. Interesting. Seems to help quite a bit.

Thanks for posting. I've not had any personal contact with Alzheimer's disease but from what I know it is very distressing for all, and of course with the demographics the way they are, it is a burgeoning problem.

Good that some local boffins are checking it out. But here is a word of caution I came across through google:

QUOTE
Etanercept (brand name Enbrel) is a type of drug known as anti-TNF (anti-tumour necrosis factor). In the UK Etanercept is available for some people with rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis and ankylosing spondylitis, and for some children with juvenile idiopathic arthritis.

A 2006 pilot study showed small but significant improvements in various cognitive rating scales in patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD) after treatment with etanercept. A further study, administering to a single AD patient via perispinal infusion, showed rapid and significant improvement in Alzheimer's symptoms.

Etanercept, as a treatment for Alzhiemer's disease has only been trialled on a very small number of people and there are large gaps in the research. I think the Alzheimer's Society felt they could not draw any conclusions from initial results and had some serious concerns about the validity of the research.

A small number of US physicians offer etanercept treatment for AD at a cost of $10,000 to $40,000 per annum.


http://forum.alzheimers.org.uk/showthread....inal-etanercept

Who knows how reliable that poster is of course but in my google search I did come across the name of one yank doctor, a Dr Tobinick of Florida USA, who seemed to be doing lots to promote himself and the treatment he offers. He has set up business right in the heart of Retirement City USA so with a bit of hustle and advertising he would be making an absolute fortune I suspect.

He may be onto the silver bullet for AD of course. But it seems lots more research, like what the Brisbane uni is going to do, is needed.

A New Shot at Life
Friday, November 4, 2011

Video and transcript here http://sixtyminutes.ninemsn.com.au/stories...ew-shot-at-life

"The doctors there believe Alzheimer's disease can be reversed and they have the results to prove it."

"It clearly has a marvelous, immediate and prolonged effect"

"It’s called perispinal etanercept, an anti-inflammatory drug that was designed to treat rheumatoid arthritis. Now, it targets a protein called TNF – we all have it – but it’s 25 times higher in patients with Alzheimer’s. Dr Tobinick discovered that this, just a few ‘mls’ of it, can shrink excessive levels of that protein in the brain. And his patients say it’s like a fog clearing from their mind."

"Researchers at Queensland’s Griffith University hope to begin the first Australian trials on perispinal etanercept early next year."
