- Chemotherapy may affect healthy cells surrounding cancer cells
- Research suggests that some forms of cancer treatment can make the disease tougher to tackle
Chemotherapy treatment for some cancers may actually encourage tumours to grow, researchers have claimed.
The treatment triggers the healthy body cells around the tumour to produce a protein that helps the disease to resist treatment.
The surprise discovery suggests that some forms of the cancer treatment are doing more harm than good.
Scientists believe the effect is caused by the impact of chemotherapy drugs on healthy connective tissue cells called fibroblasts.
In lab experiments they found the drugs caused DNA damage which made fibroblasts pump out 30 times more of a protein than normal.
This protein encouraged prostate tumours to grow and spread into surrounding tissue, as well as to resist chemotherapy.
A Russian government official bragged that Barack Obama was a KGB operative and that his presidency had been planned since birth, an American physicist and government contractor reports.
Tom Fife, an American computer networking specialist and international businessman, reported the alarming facts about the Kremlin’s connection to Barack Obama. The boast from a Communist Party official reportedly occurred during a business trip to Russia, 16 years before Barack Obama was ushered into the presidency of the United States.
“It was like an elastic band snapping all the way from 1992,” Fife shakily admitted, upon recall of the exact moment he realized the Communist official had been telling the truth. “It was a very, very scary feeling.”
Fife, a physicist and computer engineer, had been traveling to Russia for a joint venture with a state-owned company when the shocking revelation was revealed to him. After several business meetings, Fife and his partner were invited to the company owner’s home at the end of the journey for a farewell dinner.
America needs “soul searching” on gun violence: Obama
President Barack Obama said on Monday that mass killings like the shooting rampage at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin were occurring with “too much regularity” and should prompt soul searching by all Americans, but he stopped short of calling for new gun-control laws.
“All of us are heart-broken by what happened,” Obama told reporters at the White House a day after a gunman opened fire on Sikh worshippers preparing for religious services, killing six before he was shot dead by a police officer.
But when asked whether he would push for further gun-control measures in the wake of the shootings, Obama said only that he wanted to bring together leaders at all levels of American society to examine ways to curb gun violence.
Syria’s new interim premier met his Cabinet after Prime Minister Riad Hijab disappeared in what rebels said was his defection to the opposition.
Omar Ghalawanji, the former deputy prime minister for services affairs who’s now acting premier, met ministers late yesterday, according to the Syrian Arab News Agency. Information Minister Omran al-Zoubi indirectly confirmed Hijab’s departure, saying that anyone who fled the country and illegitimately abandoned a government post showed a lack of political and national awareness, the state-run news agency reported.
“We haven’t heard anything from the former Prime Minister and he didn’t appear on TV nor said anything,” al-Zoubi told the agency. Al-Zoubi also rejected reports that other ministers had left Syria and said they all attended the Cabinet session.

A devastating strike would create an upsurge of patriotism in America and fully neutralize Mitt Romney’s contention that Obama is a foreign-policy wimp. It could allow Obama to sweep to victory in November.
Will he do it?
One reason he might is that Mitt Romney is singlehandedly pushing the entire debate about Israel and Iran to the right. The parameters have changed markedly. As TNI editor Robert Merry and others have noted, Romney’s efforts to ingratiate himself with Jewish donors and voters have prompted him to suspend any notion of an independent American foreign policy in the Middle East.

Three suspected Al Qaeda terrorists arrested in Spain last week could have been planning to launch a devastating attack on a busy Gibraltar shopping centre from the air.
Spanish security services suspect the trio – two Chechen Russians and a Turk – were planning to assault the British colony to the south of Spain from above.
The exact date of the alleged planned attack is unknown – but Spanish media today suggested launching it during the Olympics would have guaranteed maximum publicity for the terror organisation.
And El País newspaper has reported how the Turkish ‘facilitator of the cell’ Cengiz Yalcin was a keen paraglider and model aeroplane enthusiast and was learning how to fly.
He was also paying for the two Russians of Chechen descent – Eldar Magomedov, who is said to be a former member of Soviet Union Special Forces, and Mohamed Ankari Adamov – to learn how to pilot a small plane.
Yalcin is also said to have asked his paragliding instructor for aerial photographs of a Gibraltar shopping mall ‘whatever the cost’.
Police use Taser on deaf crime victim
see the video about the 911 call
TV’s investigative unit has discovered Tacoma police used force to arrest and handcuff an innocent deaf woman after she called 911 for their help.
Late in the evening on April 6, White said she called for police assistance after a guest reportedly attacked her in her own apartment.
Deaf since birth, White used a special video-equipped phone, connected to a TV and a Web camera, to call 911. A certified American Sign Language interpreter on the other end verbally relayed White’s pleas for help to a Tacoma police dispatcher.
“I said, ‘Please hurry! There’s a person here beating me up,’” White explained to Halsne during a television interview last month.

He even likened fans of the country’s growing support of their athletes to a mindset held by the populace Nazi Germany in the late 1930s, and told Brits to ‘WAKE UP’.
‘As I recently drove through Greece I noticed repeated graffiti seemingly everywhere on every available wall. In large blue letters it said WAKE UP WAKE UP.

Get ready for the corporate media to spin the FBI’s characterization of the shooting in Milwaukee as white supremacist domestic terrorism.
“Unnamed officials told NBC News that the suspect had served in the U.S. army, had many tattoos, and held ‘some kind of radical or white supremacist views’ but was not known to be affiliated with any radical group. The suspect had only traffic tickets on his criminal records, the officials told NBC News,” the Daily Beast reported late Sunday.
(How long will it take before they say that this man had contact with Al Qaeda during his days of an officer in the army)
