Do this at your own risk.  To me it sounds like another con job.  Strange brew that can only be obtained from some exotic jungle and cures every possible emotional ailment known to man.  Even migraines.  I suppose seizure claims are next.

I only know like all the other gimmicks is that it is making some people money:

GM,
Pretty good article in this month's Scientific American on the production of Star Trek.  I cannot seem to find it now to post.
Did you know that the studio that finally accepted and wanted to do the series was Desilu?  Lucille Ball was a big backer of the series that no one else wanted.  It was after her divorce with Desi.

Roddneberry thought about having a female second in command but in those days having a female command a 22 century space ship was too dangerous and controversial.  Now it would be the opposite. 

There was a lot of power feuding between Nimoy and Shatner.  Nimoy actually became more popular that Shatner and the latter hated it.  They fought the first season or two over who would get to read crucial lines.

The show lost money but because it went into 60+ countries and became one of the biggest syndicated show, as well as a franchise that if it went just another 6 months cash would have been rolling in.  Instead it was cancelled after only 3 seasons.

The evolution of the transporter came about by  the fact that it was cheaper than trying to film a ship or craft landing on the surface of the planet, and of got characters to where you wanted them in a hurry saving time and boredom.

Part of the reason so many aliens were simply variations of humans was because it was cheaper.

I generally liked Star Trek but didn't love it.  I actually liked Lost in Space more.  Dr Smith used to crack me up.  Plus I had a crush on Angela Cartwright (Penny).

The brother of a childhood friend of mine had a one line cameo in the first Star Trek movie.

“Do you believe on raising taxes on the wealthy?” Trump was asked on the TODAY Show on Thursday morning.   

“I do,” he said. “I do. Including myself, I do.”

FWIW, Larry Kudlow was on the John Batchelor radio show yesterday and gave 'his' clarification of what Trump meant by this statement.  Trump would effectively raise taxes on the rich by closing loopholes while lowering overall personal and corporate rates.   Kudlow whose raison de ter (sp?), if you will, is 'lower taxes' and 'growth of the economy'.  He said he thought Trump's tax plan was the best one offered though maybe Cruz would have had one just as good.

Two things I don't like about his tax plan is there are 4 brackets and 50% of the population will pay nothing which is just plain wrong:

The article is interesting indeed!  I noticed this following statement.  So what I think this means is drug *use* but not sales is legal.  So it is only partial decriminalization.
Heroin use is down but is that due to the availability of other drugs?  NO IV drugs?  and hence the drop in HIV?  Are the drugs being sold legally by the State?  I didn't see that.  Well William F Buckley called for decriminalization in part to take the criminal element out. 

I guess i could do a search and read more about this.

****Obama Hails ‘Most Progressive Era in Human History’

President Barack Obama gives opening remarks at the Hannover Messe industrial trade fair on April 25, 2016 in Hanover, Germany.Adam Berry/Getty Images
by CHARLIE SPIERING25 Apr 2016358
President Barack Obama is again hailing the state of the planet under his administration, as he prepares to hand the White House to his presidential successor in January 2017.

“We are fortunate to be living in the most peaceful, most prosperous, most progressive era in human history,” Obama boasted during a speech in Germany today.

He admitted that his observation was counter to the media narrative that highlighted bad news in the world, but continued to take the long view of his place in human history.

“If you had to choose a moment in time to be born, any time in human history, and you didn’t know ahead of time what nationality you were or what gender or what your economic status might be, you’d choose today,” he said confidently.

He cited the growth of democratic government, wealth, health and education around the globe combined with a “global economy” that lifted more people out of poverty. He also cited a more “tolerant” planet of different races and sexual preferences.

“Around the world, we’re more tolerant — with more opportunity for women, and gays and lesbians, as we push back on bigotry and prejudice,” he said.

He admitted that there continues to be suffering in the world, citing economic inequality, slow economic growth, and fears of terrorism.

Obama warned against divisive political rhetoric of politicians in Europe trying to exploit global fears to create an “us vs. them mentality” between Muslims and immigrants.

“If a unified, peaceful, liberal, pluralistic, free-market Europe begins to doubt itself, begins to question the progress that’s been made over the last several decades, then we can’t expect the progress that is just now taking hold in many places around the world will continue,” he said.****

FWIW
A producer in Florida saw Katherine write lyrics and was reading one of her songs.  He didn't like the way the words came out and asked if she could fix it.  She said sure, and immediately rearranged the words making it come out perfect.

The producer was astonished and said, "I never saw anyone who can write like this, except Prince, and he's a genius".

Despite trying to fleece Katherine in every way he could think of he claimed, "I am the most honest person you will ever meet in the music business".

There are good reasons why Prince had to live in a high security compound and reportedly had a bank like vault.

I don't know where to put this under "Trump" or "wolves, dogs etc."  These terriers and the Donald are alike in temperaments too.
The Reverend Jack Russell owned a fox terrier named "Trump":

From Wikipedia on Jack Russell Terriers:

*******"A black and white drawing of a white dog with black markings on the face. The image is in profile with the dog facing left."
A drawing of Trump, the dog purchased by the Reverend John Russell.
The small white-fox working terriers we know today were first bred by the Reverend Jack Russell, a parson and hunting enthusiast born in 1795,[1] and they can trace their origin to the now extinct English White terrier.[2] Difficulty in differentiating the dog from the creature it was pursuing brought about the need for a mostly white dog,[3] and so in 1819 during his last year of university at Exeter College, Oxford,[4] he purchased a small white and tan terrier female named Trump from a local milkman in the nearby small hamlet of Elsfield[5] or Marston[6]). Trump epitomised his ideal Fox terrier,[7] which, at the time, was a term used for any terrier which was used to bolt foxes out of their burrows.[2] Her colouring was described as "...white, with just a patch of dark tan over each eye and ear; whilst a similar dot, not larger than a penny piece, marks the root of the tail."[8] Davies, a friend of Russell's, wrote "Trump was such an animal as Russell had only seen in his dreams".[4] She was the basis for a breeding program to develop a terrier with high stamina for the hunt as well as the courage and formation to chase out foxes that had gone to ground.[9] By the 1850s, these dogs were recognised as a distinct breed.[10]
An important attribute in this dog was a tempered aggressiveness that would provide the necessary drive to pursue and bolt the fox, without resulting in physical harm to the quarry and effectively ending the chase, which was considered unsporting.[11] Russell was said to have prided himself that his terriers never tasted blood.[10] This line of terriers developed by John Russell was well respected for those qualities, and his dogs were often taken on by hunt enthusiasts. It is unlikely, however, that any dogs alive today can be proven to be descendants from Trump, as Russell was forced to sell all his dogs on more than one occasion because of financial difficulty, and had only four aged (and non-breeding) terriers left when he died in 1883.[12]
The Fox terrier and Jack Russell terrier type dogs of today are all descended from dogs of that period, although documented pedigrees earlier than 1862 have not been found, although several records remain of documented breeding by John Russell between the 1860s and 1880s. The Fox Terrier Club was formed in 1875 with Russell as one of the founder members; its breed standard was aspiration, and not a description of how the breed appeared then. By the start of the 20th century, the Fox terrier had altered more towards the modern breed, but in some parts of the country the old style of John Russell's terriers remained, and it is from those dogs that the modern Jack Russell type has descended.[4]*****

Found the article about dog's value in the eyes of the law.  No mention when the Ga. Supremes will rule on it though:
