Have been getting an unusual amount of spam in my comments latley so I have had to moderate comments if they do not appear immediatly or even the same day do not be offended for they will get thru I am deciding on weather to install akismet or another anit spam software but one thing I relized is that whoever is sending the spam in probably NOT using the ip address that they are assigned and that I might be blocking people who never even had the chance to comment or becasue spammers have used his or her ip to send a spam comment. Any anti spam companies of professionals out there that would like to work with me on fighting spam please buzz me because by doing just a couple basic things when the computer moderates the comments it would reduce 99% of the comment spam on the internet. How to make a better internet is something we should all offer for free to the masses and for the next couple of posts I will be getting down on how to fight spam. Since at the current rate of comment spam times my life expantacy it will cost me 2 years of my life just delating spam So I am down for starting a working group to combat this problem and others that I believe plauge the internet today.

Researchers are developing smart “nanocarriers” for drug delivery and diagnostics.
By Kevin Bullis
Using parts of living cells in a smart nanotechnology-based system, researchers in Switzerland have demonstrated a “nanocarrier” that can target specific types of cells and light up in response to conditions in their immediate environment.
The work is part of a growing effort by scientists worldwide to develop nano devices that can circulate in the bloodstream, slip stealthily past the body’s immune system, attach to cancer or inflammatory cells (an important ability in diseases such as atherosclerosis and arthritis), and deliver a deadly drug payload–destroying some of the toughest diseases without the often debilitating side effects that can accompany chemotherapy (see “Nanomedicine”).
Already, early versions of such nano-based treatments have been approved for breast cancer. But Patrick Hunziker, a physician at University Hospital Basel, and Wolfgang Meier, professor of chemistry at the University of Basel, are attempting to trigger the release of the drugs at more precise locations and at release rates adjusted to have the most effect on a particular disease.
