    Metabolic pathway plays a role in susceptibility to stuttering

    Posted: May 23, 2010 at 8:16 am

    Stuttering is a disorder of unknown cause characterized by repetitions, prolongations, and interruptions in the flow of speech. Genetic factors have been implicated in this disorder, and previous studies of stuttering have identified linkage to markers on chromosome 12.

    This study shows that variants of proteins that guide hydrolases to the lysosome are associated with stuttering. This unexpected finding implies a metabolic pathway in susceptibility to stuttering.

    Health benefits of chocolate

    Posted: May 23, 2010 at 8:16 am

    The health benefits of chocolate may include:

    - Reduction of blood pressure by eating 6 grams of dark chocolate per day. Probably due to the flavonol epicatechin
    - Reduction of platelet and endothelial cell activation
    - Reduction of inflammatory mediators
    - It can also inhibit oral caries
    - It can cross the blood brain barrier and increase cerebral blood flow in humans

    From Writer's Almanac:

    Ode to Chocolate by Barbara Crooker (excerpt)

    I hate milk chocolate, don't want clouds
    of cream diluting the dark night sky,
    don't want pralines or raisins, rubble
    in this smooth plateau. I like my coffee
    black, my beer from Germany, wine
    from Burgundy, the darker, the better.

    "Many Dead Things: The Specimens of Alex CF," Superette Gallery, London

    Posted: May 23, 2010 at 8:16 am


    Friend-of-Morbid-Anatomy Suzanne G. of the incomparable Wurzeltod website and Tumblr, asked me to help get the word out about the upcoming exhibition: "Many Dead Things: The Specimens of Alex CF." The opening reception will take place on May 17th and the show will be on view until June 12th.

    Full information following; check it out!

    MANY DEAD THINGS – THE SPECIMENS OF ALEX CF
    27 May – 2 June 2010
    Opening reception: 27 May, 6 – 9 PM | 28 May – 2 June, 12 – 6 PM daily

    Superette Gallery
    66A Sclater Street, Off Brick Lane
    London, E1 6HR, United Kingdom

    In his first solo exhibition, following the release of his monograph, artist Alex CF offers the public a unique opportunity to see his bizarre specimens in person – objects that have so far only been witnessed by private collectors, such as Maxime Chattam (author) or Reece Shearsmith (actor, League of Gentlemen) who wrote the foreword for his book, and will be lending pieces from his own collection for the show.

    Alex has spent the last five years crafting wondrous relics of an alternate past – a rich tapestry of 19th century cryptozoological artifacts and creatures that challenge our understanding of the natural world: The mummified remains of a vampire child, the taxidermied corpse of a 7-foot-tall adult werewolf, the trappings of scientists and archaeologists pertaining to the study of these species in the form of antique research cases, amongst many other fascinating objects.

    The show will encompass a number of works including 6 new pieces and Alex will be signing his book.

    Alex’s work has been featured in a number of well-known publications both online and in print, such as Weird Tales, Bizarre, BoingBoing, and io9. His work has also been featured on book covers, and in a number of independent films.
