Clinton's Classified EmailGate investigation "reopened" by FBI...Scandal...

11 days to the election and the FBI has "reopened" their investigation into Hillary Clinton's mishandling of classified information via Blackberry's using her personal private email server containing secret and top secret classified information.

An initial FBI investigation determined that Clinton was "extremely careless" but no criminal charges were filed...even though Clinton expressly denied ever sending classified material via her private server (which was not authorized to hold classified information) the FBI investigation determined that Clinton personally wrote 104 out of the 2,100 email recovered.

Today James Comey, Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation announced that new emails in connect to an unrelated case may also have contained classified formation and that those emails are now currently under investigation.

I have said many times that this scandal was not over and that the investigation into this scandal was far from over...the questions now are will it have any effect on Clinton's presidential run and if she wins are will we already be starting off her new term quagmired by controversy and political scandal...perhaps even federal crimes? How does this relate to the recent release of information on this by Wikileaks...or does it? So she be held accountable? Why has she been "except" so far when there are at least a dozen other people that have gone to jail and/or fined for far less offenses in mishandling of classified information? Remember Sandy Berger? Fined $50,000 w/2 years probation and stripped of his security clearance for removing files from the National Archives and lying about it? Or Maj. Jason Brezler being discharged from the marines for sending classified information using his private email server?

Three federal laws Clinton may have broken:

Executive Order 13526 and 18 U.S.C Sec. 793(f) of the federal code make it unlawful to send of store classified information on personal email in addition to the Federal Records Act and the State Department’s Foreign Affairs Manual regarding records management.

Section 1236.22 of the 2009 National Archives and Records Administration (NARA).

Violation of the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA)

I am opening up a room for POLITICAL TALK what do you all think about this new bombshell announcement?

Genesis 5 Math as Heilsgeschichte

Here is a visual demonstration regarding Methuselah's "age" of 969, that it's not a real age, since it is the sum total of all the first 17 triangle numbers (between 1 and 153). Note that 153 is the number of fish caught by the disciples when they were having difficulty and the resurrected Christ helped them, in John 21. You can see it in the following table and looking at the table explains what a triangle number is as well:

3 = 1+2
6 = 1+2+3
10 = 1+2+3+4
15 = 1+2+3+4+5
21 = 1+2+3+4+5+6
28 = 1+2+3+4+5+6+7
36 = 1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8
45 = 1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8+9
55 = 1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8+9+10
66 = 1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8+9+10+11
78 = 1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8+9+10+11+12
91 = 1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8+9+10+11+12+13
105 = 1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8+9+10+11+12+13+14
120 = 1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8+9+10+11+12+13+14+15
136 = 1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8+9+10+11+12+13+14+15+16
153 = 1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8+9+10+11+12+13+14+15+16+17

969 (adding up the sum total of all the triangle numbers)

Therefore, 153 is a resurrection number in and of itself, where if you do:

1x1x1 = 1
5x5x5 = 125
3x3x3 = 27

Therefore, 1 + 125 + 27 = 153 again!

So, Methuselah's "age" hints at the coming (resurrected) Messiah. This is all that is really going on here, and these "ages" have hidden numeric (and even in this case) prophetic meanings, and therefore are not literal. For more information, check out: Genesis 5 Math as Heilsgeschichte

DNA and "higher temperature" -
General Han Solo

In regards to this statement about DNA and a "higher temperature" that nullifies abiogenesis, I advise that TE takes a look at the recent findings of DNA surviving reentry through the Earth's atmosphere:

"Functional Activity of Plasmid DNA after Entry into the Atmosphere of Earth Investigated by a New Biomarker Stability Assay for Ballistic Spaceflight Experiments" -

Most curious is this statement on page 18:

Due to the spin of the payload during ascent and the circular application of the samples, all application sites were equally exposed to high temperatures of up to 118°C. Additionally, the DNA was exposed to temperatures between 80–100°C during the microgravity phase and up to 130°C during ascent and descent phase. The random exposure of the samples to the constantly high temperatures weakens the phosphodiester bond which leads to hydrolysis resulting in single and double strand breaks. The temperature induced DNA damage could explain the different degrees of degradation visible in the agarose gel electrophoration. Futhermore, it is likely that sample quantities are partially reduced during the landing procedure when the payload is landing on ice and snow. Compared to the sample application directly onto the payload surface, small niches in the grooves of the screw heads provided a certain degree of protection against maximum temperatures, and we observed the highest degree of protection on the bottom side. However, intact DNA was detectable for all sample application sites. We therefore conclude that the minimal protection given by the grooves on the surface of the payload structure, as well as by the grooves of the screw heads combined with the observed relatively thick layer (21 mm) of DNA and salt crystals was sufficient for at least a fraction of the DNA molecules to stay intact and retain their full function. The protective role of so called biofilms have been already shown for spores. Additionally, high salt concentration can have a beneficial effect on DNA denaturation and degradation. Salts like MgCl2 and KCl counteract the denaturation of double-stranded DNA at high temperature, and renaturation of single-stranded products of thermodegradation is favoured when the temperature of the incubation mixture decreases. A protective effect of salt crystals for the survival of bacteria under vacuum and UV conditions were reported also earlier. The fact that DNA is susceptible to high temperature was already shown by several groups before. Chiter and colleagues who analysed the transfer of genetic modified organisms in form of DNA fragments could show that temperatures above 95°C for more than five minutes lead to a high level of DNA fragmentation so that it is unlikely that genetic information is retained.

For further information, this was discussed by Dr. Fazale Rana on this podcast recording:
DNA in an aqueous solution-
General Han Solo

Here's a 2013 study that was done in literally visualizing DNA in an aqueous solution because the aqueous solution helped the visualization. Here's the abstract:

The DNA double helix was first elucidated by J.D. Watson and F.H.C. Crick over a half century ago. However, no one could actually “see” the well-known structure ever. Among all real-space observation methods, only atomic force microscopy (AFM) enables us to visualize the biologically active structure of natural DNA in water. However, conventional AFM measurements often caused the structural deformation of DNA because of the strong interaction forces acting on DNA. Moreover, large contact area between the AFM probe and DNA hindered us from imaging sub-molecular-scale features smaller than helical periodicity of DNA. Here, we show the direct observation of native plasmid DNA in water using an ultra-low-noise AFM with the highly sensitive force detection method (frequency modulation AFM: FM-AFM). Our micrographs of DNA vividly exhibited not only overall structure of the B-form double helix in water but also local structures which deviate from the crystallographic structures of DNA without any damage. Moreover, the interaction force area in the FM-AFM was small enough to clearly discern individual functional groups within DNA. The technique was also applied to explore the synthesized DNA nanostructures toward the current nanobiotechnology. This work will be essential for considering the structure–function relationship of biomolecular systems in vivo and for in situ analysis of DNA-based nanodevices.

And here's the conclusion of this excellent study:

We used FM-AFM to directly visualize the double helix structure of plasmid DNA in an aqueous solution. The major and minor grooves between the sugar phosphate backbones of B-DNA were differentiated, and periodic corrugations corresponding to individual phosphate groups in the DNA backbones were resolved. We determined the AFM tip radius as 1.0 nm by comparing the simulated AFM images assuming various tip radii with the FM-AFM image, and the interpretation of the experimental results was validated by the precise comparison of the cross-sectional profiles on the DNA backbones. In addition, we used FM-AFM to perform high-resolution imaging of DNA tiles in an aqueous solution, which showed the righthandedness of B-DNA in the tile and the two different connecting configurations. The results demonstrate the applicability of AFM to sub-molecular-scale investigations of correlations between the structures and functions of DNA under physiological conditions. For example, the approach may allow determination of the structures of various protein nucleic acid complexes or reveal the mechanisms of sequence recognition by DNA-binding proteins. Finally, it should be noted that the technique presented here is one of the most promising analytical tools for investigating the structures of self-assembled DNA nanostructures, such as DNA tiles and DNA origami, which are being developed for applications in DNA computing and other DNA-based nanoscale devices that use the structures and functions of DNA in solution.

Here's the link:

And to top it off, here's an entire PhD dissertation titled, "On the Structure of DNA in an Aqueous Solution" that was published in 1980!

The abstract is as follows:

This thesis deals with the structure of DNA under a variety of conditions of concentration, ionic strength, and association with proteins. I have investigated the behavior of rod-like DNA under conditions of high DNA concentration and low counterion concentration. I have found that the DNA forms specific aggregates, each consisting of seven monomers. Electric dichroism revealed that the conformation of the DNA changes upon formation of these aggregates, with the base tilt angle changing from 17(DEGREES) to 0(DEGREES). I have prepared restriction fragments of DNA and, by combining translational and rotational hydrodynamic data, I have deduced that the diameter of DNA in solution is 24 (+OR-) 2 (ANGSTROM), and the helical rise per residue is 3.15 (+OR-) 0.15 (ANGSTROM). To facilitate analysis of hydrodynamic data, I have developed a technique to measure rotational frictional coefficients of macroscopic objects. I have confirmed the standard equations for cylinders of axial ratio greater than ten, and have developed a relation which is accurate for cylinders of axial ratio down to one. I have developed new equations for the rotation of discs, and I have shown that large perturbations in the draining properties of the object have only a small effect on the frictional coefficient. I have used hydrodynamic measurements to deduce size parameters for the chromatin thick fiber. I have concluded that, in high salt conditions, the thick fiber is 340 (+OR-) 20 (ANGSTROM) thick, with 7-8 nucleosomes per turn. Finally, I have studied the effect of histone H1 on the structure of the nucleosome. I have found that H1 causes some compaction, without much altering the path of the DNA. H1 has an effect on the low salt transition to an unfolded form, but it does not eliminate the transition.
