University of Hawaii: Cause of Homosexuality and Dyslexia Discovered

*Editors Note* I just came across this and have not verified the facts of this and I DO NOT BELIEVE THE FACTS STATED IN THIS SELF RELEASED Press Release by the professor himself:

According to University of Hawaii neuroscientist, Bruce E. Morton, “Failures of midline crossings of the developing nervous system occur in utero within hybrid Familial Polarity offspring. These developmental failures result in reversed wiring for a number of behavioral outcomes, including homosexuality and dyslexia.”

Dr. Morton says that, “According to Familial Polarity, there are two, as yet unrecognized pre-racial evolutionary lineages of humankind. One is called Patripolar with male dominance, the other Matripolar with female dominance. These differ subtly in reproductive strategies. Thus, although offspring of inadvertent cross breedings are viable, they also suffer certain developmental anomalies, often reproductive. To a lesser extent, these appear similar to the cross breeding of horses and donkeys, except that human hybrids can still reproduce to a limited degree.”

The startling discovery and significance of Familial Polarity is described extensively in Dr. Morton’s amazon.com book: “Neuroreality: A Scientific Religion to Restore Meaning.” According to him, “Familial Polarity arose out of right brain-left brain thinking and behavioral differences that he has reconstituted as Hemisity in numerous of his neuroscience publications. It turned out that the saying: ‘opposites attract,’ refers to the hemisity of spouses, where there are twice as many complimentary (right male) RM-LF, or RF-LM marital pairs than there are RM-RF or LM-LF partners. When, ancestry was investigated it was found that in terms of hemisity, the complimentary mates were true breeding. Their children were ‘like father, like son, like mother, like daughter.’ While the hybrid offspring of like-like hemisity pairs were random in hemisity, while being highly enriched with homosexuals and dyslexics.”

According to Dr. Morton, “The simplest explanation for these results was the following: there are two ancient unrecognized true breeding pre-racial human lineages. In these, RM-LF pairs, are called Patripolars, and RF-LM pairs, Matripolars. From this perspective, human history can be rewritten as endless conflict between the two Familial Polarity strains.” Dr. Morton said, “he analyzed and published the hemisity of the opponents at 21 sites of repetitive global conflict. In 20 of those sites, for example Germany vs. France, the soldiers were of opposite hemisity. Right brain German warriors were fighting for their Fatherland, and called out to their fathers at death. Left brain French warriors were fighting for their Motherland and called for their mothers when dying.” Dr. Morton says, “Familial Polarity is a new, currently unrecognized but powerful biological element underlying global conflict.”

Group Proposes Genetically Modified Mosquitoes to Fight Dengue

Ok… I thought I had heard of all the GMO type of products that there were… but now I’m reading that there are genetically modified mosquitoes!

The Department of Science and Technology is looking into the use of genetically modified mosquitoes to combat the dreaded dengue hemorrhagic fever.

In a round table discussion attended by at least 60 Filipino scientists on Monday, foreign scientists from the British company Oxford Insect Technologies (Oxitec) and the National Academy of Sciences proposed their newest technology aimed at eradicating the Aedes aegypti species of dengue-bearing mosquitoes.

Dr. Luke Alphey, co-founder and chief scientist of Oxitec, and Dr. Anthony James, a molecular biologist and a member of NAS, who are both part of the team working on the genetically engineered mosquitoes, are in the country upon the invitation of the DOST.

The scientists have created genetically modified Aedes aegypti male mosquitoes, which, they claim,  if released in the wild and mated with female ones, can produce flightless female offspring…

Lt. Governor Schatz – “Our Energy Future Is Now”

Aloha everyone,

Your administration is working hard to build a sustainable economy, and the key to that is clean energy.  While we’ve just begun, I’m happy to report that we’re making exciting progress.

We are moving fast on electric vehicles.  Through a federal grant, our Department of Business Economic Development and Tourism (DBEDT) is partnering with private companies, and by the end of 2012, Hawai‘i will have more electric vehicle charging stations per capita than any other state.  We are the ideal place for electric cars because of our high gas prices and short driving distances.

We are building international partnerships on energy.  This week Hawai‘i is hosting the Asia Pacific Clean Energy Summit, where we expect more than 1,200 local and international clean energy leaders in the government and private sectors to attend along with delegations from more than a dozen countries.  The Governor and I are speaking at this summit to welcome our guests and advance partnerships with key government players and investors in China, Korea, Okinawa, Japan and other countries.

These partnerships are critical to attracting the kind of investment that will be necessary to develop renewable energy opportunities for our state and a sustainable economy.  Any type of investment in Hawai‘i is significant in that it strengthens our economy and provides additional job opportunities for Hawai‘i’s workforce.  This particular kind of investment goes further in that it will enable us to get off of oil that much sooner.  The less oil we consume, the less we all spend each month on gas and electricity and the more money we have in our pockets for other needs.  Hawai‘i’s energy program powers Hawai‘i’s economic growth by attracting the inflow of investment as well as reducing the outflow of dollars from our economy.

We are focusing on Megawatts.  What does that mean? It means that all of this exciting talk is just that – talk – unless we get projects approved, financed, and delivered to customers.  So we are working with all state departments, especially the Public Utilities Commission, to make sure that private clean energy producers can succeed in moving Hawai‘i off of oil. Through DBEDT’s Energy Office, we are also working to facilitate the siting and permitting of clean energy projects to ensure the timely and expeditious completion of these projects.  That means that companies that want to deliver clean energy to your home or business will be doing it, not just talking about it.

There’s a lot more to do, but I am energized by the progress made in our first nine months in office.  The Governor and I are determined to build on this solid foundation going forward.  If you want to know more about the administration’s efforts in energy independence, visit http://energy.hawaii.gov.

Aloha,

Brian Schatz

KTA Donation Helps Bay Clinic Dental Expansion

Staying in step with its founder’s philanthropic values, KTA Super Stores selected Bay Clinic as the recipient of a $23,000 donation for a new Hilo dental center.  The donation was made in memory of Koichi and Taniyo Taniguchi, the original owners of the Hilo-based grocery chain.

By December, Bay Clinic plans to open a new dental clinic inside the Hilo Shopping Center.  To be called the “Hilo Family Dental Center,” the new clinic aims to offer a low cost alternative to dental care for patients with or without insurance.  The KTA donation will provide funding for digital x-ray machines, while numerous other donations, grants and federal subsidies – namely from the Affordable Care Act Capital Development Program – will fund construction.

“Bay Clinic currently has one dental site in Keaʻau and a mobile dental unit that rotates between Kaʻu, Puna, and Hilo, but we are finding that the need for dental services in Hilo far outweighs our current capacity,” stated Paul Strauss, Bay Clinic CEO.

In Hawaiʻi County, 55% of the population is uninsured or covered under QUEST/Medicaid.  For this group, oral health care options are extremely limited which negatively impacts their oral health.  With the rate of cavities in school-aged children more than double the national average, Hawaiʻi children bear an unfair portion of the burden related to poor access to dental care.  In fact, The Pew Charitable Trust recently published a national children’s dental health report card, giving Hawaiʻi an “F” grade in children’s dental health.  Overall, Hawaiʻi Island communities experience higher rates of permanent teeth removal and lower rates of preventative oral health care when compared to Hawaiʻi State averages.

Bay Clinic will continue to provide mobile dental care in Kaʻu and Pahoa after the new Hilo center is opened.  Another dental expansion is planned for 2013 with the completion of a new Kaʻu Family Health and Dental Center.

Bay Clinic provides primary health care, dental and behavioral health care to the uninsured and medically underserved families of Hilo, Puna and Kaʻu.  As a nonprofit healthcare provider, Bay Clinic depends upon donations and grants to continue providing healthcare on a sliding fee scale for those in need.  For more information, please visit www.bayclinicinc.org.

New Honu’s Restaurant Opens on Kamakahonu Bay at King Kamehameha’s Kona Beach Hotel

It’s got a new name, look and menu. The iconic King Kamehameha’s Kona Beach Hotel opens its flagship restaurant today—Honu’s. Open daily for breakfast, dinner and spectacular buffets, Honu’s replaces the hotel’s seaside Kona Beach Restaurant that was damaged during the March tsunami.

Fronting the ocean, Honu’s is named after adjacent Kamakahonu Bay, which in Hawaiian means “eye of the turtle.” The crescent-shaped bay with its white sand beach is just steps away from Honu’s, which brings the outdoors “in” with a new design. Boasting the best ocean view in town, Honu’s has towering window-doors that open to the sights and sounds of scenic Kamakahonu Bay with its historic heiau and bustling ocean activities. Patrons can relax on the spacious lanai, complete with inviting firepits. Honu’s also offers spacious, open-air indoor dining and a private dining room that seats up to 70—perfect for private parties and family get togethers.

To satisfy locals and visitors alike, Honu’s continues the time-honored tradition of the hotel’s lavish buffets for breakfast, weekends and holidays. A popular holdover from the replaced Kona Beach Restaurant, the satisfying spreads include the weekend Prime Rib & Seafood Buffet available every Friday and Saturday starting in mid-October.

The star at breakfast is the hearty buffet. In not only has a made-to-order omelet and waffle station, but also a bounty of fresh fruit, sausage and bacon, pancakes and french toast, scrambled eggs, breakfast potatoes, numerous freshly baked pastries and breads, granola, yogurt, miso soup, pickled veggies, rice, juice and coffee.

At the culinary helm of Honu’s is Hawai‘i native Paul Muranaka, a Big Isle resident since 1986. The graduate of Kapiolani Community College earned his culinary chops at the Honolulu International Country Club, the Sheraton Princess Kaiulani Hotel in Waikiki and the Palm Café and Sam Choy’s Restaurant in Kona.

“Guests will enjoy a wonderful selection of island salads and creative new seafood dishes, all in the style of Hawaii Regional Cuisine,” says Chef Muranaka.

For example, diners can enjoy seafood poke prepared using freshly farmed ogo from Keahole-Kona. Satisfying salads include the tasty Pepper-Seared Ahi Tuna Salad and the Grilled Chicken & Papaya Salad. New soon-to-be favorite entrees range from the

Seared Diver Scallops served with purple sweet potatoes and farm-fresh asparagus to the teriyaki-style tender rib eye steaks complemented with grilled local corn and bok choy.

Honu’s is open 6-10:30 a.m. for breakfast and 5:30-10 p.m. daily for dinner. Reservations are recommended, phone 808-329-2911. For information on hotel accommodations, visit www.konabeachhotel.com, or find us on Facebook
