This is utter insanity!! You know that most of that “missing” money is sitting in the offshore accounts of politicians, bankers, and corporate CEO’s. Makes me sick!

MRI Shows Gray Matter Myelin Loss Strongly Related to MS Disability
Read the full article MRI Shows Gray Matter Myelin Loss Strongly Related to MS Disability at NeuroscienceNews.com.
People with multiple sclerosis (MS) lose myelin in the gray matter of their brains and the loss is closely correlated with the severity of the disease, according to a new magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) study. Researchers said the findings could have important applications in clinical trials and treatment monitoring.

Research: “Fast Whole-Brain Three-dimensional Macromolecular Proton Fraction Mapping in Multiple Sclerosis” by Vasily L. Yarnykh, James D. Bowen, Alexey Samsonov, Pavle Repovic, Angeli Mayadev, Peiqing Qian, Beena Gangadharan, Bart P. Keogh, Kenneth R. Maravilla, and Lily K. Jung Henson in Radiology. doi:10.1148/radiol.14140528
Image: The scheme demonstrating how an MPF map is computed from source MR images. Imaging protocol includes three gradient-echo images with variable flip angles, a gradient-echo image with off-resonance radiofrequency saturation enabling the magnetization transfer effect (MT-weighted image), and a reference image that is a similar gradient-echo image obtained without saturation. Additionally, an MR imager produces maps of the main magnetic field (B0) and radiofrequency field (B1), which are used to correct errors caused by imperfectness of imager’s hardware. MPF maps are computed voxel-by-voxel in two steps, (A) and (B), using special software developed by the authors. During the first step (A), a map of the longitudinal relaxation rate (R1) is generated as described in the literature. This map along with an MT-weighted image and a reference image are used to compute an MPF map in the second step (B) based on an iterative algorithm recently described by the authors.

US of A

This is some of what we know. Not all. And there is more we do not even know.

how can people still deny 9/11 was an inside job?

Because some of us had parents who loved us.

But you just read…. They work together. Our government is as corrupt as it gets. I’m perplexed. You don’t even know me either. Everybody on Tumblr kinda sucks at being civil and humane I think.
