But a recently released study by different researchers puts Oklahoma City in that spot.
Lubbock didn't make the Top 10, nor could it because population not quite big enough.
A city population of 250,000 or more was the cutoff for the new ranking published in the American Political Science Review and reported by AlterNet.
Lubbock's population is about 239,000, according to a 2013 U.S. Census estimate.
Researchers at UCLA and MIT analyzed large-scale surveys that questioned residents of over 1,600 towns and cities about a range of policy areas, from education to healthcare, according to AlterNet.
Lubbock's conservative credentials stand out when the population threshold is lowered, or at least that was the case in 2005.
The 2005 ranking is a thing of legend in Lubbock.
It's a regular talking point among Lubbockites and others wanting either to brag about or condemn the city and its culture.
Some conservatives see the ranking as a badge of honor for their home town while liberals bring up the ranking to out-of-town friends, seeking sympathy about what they have to deal with.
The 2005 study released by the nonpartisan Bay Area Center for Voting Research ranked the political leanings of 237 United States cities with populations greater than 100,000.
It found Detroit, Michigan is the most liberal and Provo, Utah is the most conservative.
As a comparison, the newly released study places Detroit at No. 7.
Provo isn't big enough, but another western city, Mesa, Arizona, took the top spot in the new ranking.
Lubbock came in second in the 2005 ranking, with Abilene following at third.

Exercise more - try dozens of different sports, several per day.
I was aware of this research almost since day 1.
I probably saw the Nobel Prize Winner in Berkeley or San Francisco but don't remember her.
Why do some people appear to age more rapidly than others?
Not only might they look older, they actually feel older as well.
A check of their telomeres indicates that they are aging more rapidly at the cellular levels.
Their telomeres are shrinking.
Small telomeres foretell a shortened healthspan.
LEARNING ABOUT TELOMERES:
So what is a telomere?
This is the term for the noncoding DNA that appears at the end of each gene-bearing chromosome like the plastic tip at the end of a shoelace.
And, like that shoelace tip, the telomere protects the chromosome as it does its work.
Telomeres are tiny to start with, and they get shorter with each cell division.
Telomeres have an important impact on health, but conversely, lifestyle makes a big difference for telomeres.
Some of the ways we live shorten them more quickly, while others can actually help them grow longer.
WHAT IS THE TELOMERE EFFECT?
How do telomeres respond to stress?
(They don't like it.)
Inflammation can make them shrink, as well.
Exercise helps them grow longer even as it strengthens your muscles.
Find out how
meditation and a
Mediterranean diet can affect your telomeres and your healthspan.

Sir Angus Deaton
in Proceedings of the National Academy of the Sciences of the United States of America
Quiet 'Epidemic' Has Killed Half a Million Middle-Aged White Americans
Despite advances in health care and quality of life, white middle-aged Americans have seen overall mortality rates increase over the past 15 years, representing an overlooked "epidemic" with deaths comparable to the number of Americans who have died of AIDS, according to new Princeton University research.
The results are published in a new paper in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences from
With data from a variety of surveys and reports, the paper reports a sharp increase in the death rate for middle-aged whites after 1998, which the researchers tie to drugs and alcohol, suicide, chronic liver disease and cirrhosis.
Although death rates related to drugs, alcohol and suicides have risen for middle-aged whites at all education levels, the largest increases are seen among those with the least education, the researchers found.
All-cause mortality rose by 22 percent for this least-educated group.
In terms of lives lost, had the white mortality rate held at its 1998 value, 96,000 lives would have been saved between 1998 and 2013.
While this turnaround in mortality is only partly understood, the research team cites the increased availability of opioids in the late '90s as a potential cause, with some substitution toward heroin as opioid prescription became more carefully monitored and the quality and availability of heroin rose.
The authors note that financial stress may also play a role.
The high death rates also coincide with self-reported declines in health, mental health and the ability to cope with daily living among middle-aged whites over this same period
In the paper, the authors write that "a serious concern is that those currently in midlife will age into Medicare in worse health than the elderly of today," but that "this is not automatic;
Rising Mortality Rates
Between 1978 and 1998, the mortality rate for white, middle-aged (ages 45 to 54) Americans declined by 2 percent a year on average, which matched the mortality declines observed in other rich countries, including France, Germany, the United Kingdom and Sweden.
After 1998, things changed.
When looking at the causes of death, the researchers found they were primarily
While the underlying causes are hypothetical at this point, the researchers point toward the increased availability of
"The epidemic of pain, which the opioids were designed to treat, is real
"Pain prevalence might have been even higher without the drugs, although
Regionally, the rise in mortality occurred in all regions of the U.S., though
In all five-year age groups that the authors looked at between 30 to 34 and 60 to 64, there were marked increases in deaths related to
Increasing Reports of Pain
For middle-aged Americans, increasing mortality ran alongside increasing reports of pain.
Psychological distress also shot up in middle-aged whites
"With regards to the increase in mental illness, I think it is part and parcel of all of this bad stuff going on,"
In terms of policy, the researchers look toward tighter restrictions on prescription painkillers, but note that
"We need to think hard about controlling the prescriptions of opioid painkillers. The Federal Drug Administration recently approved Oxycontin for kids," Deaton said.
Case acknowledges support from the National Institute on Aging (Grant P30 AG024361), and
The paper, "Rising Morbidity and Mortality in Midlife Among White non-Hispanic Americans in the 21st Century," was published in PNAS on Nov. 2.
In 2015, when researchers Ann Case and Angus Deaton discovered that death rates had been rising dramatically since 1999 among middle-aged white Americans, they weren't sure why people were dying younger, reversing decades of longer life expectancy.
Now the husband-and-wife economists say they have a better understanding of what's causing these "deaths of despair" by suicide, drugs and alcohol.
In a follow-up to their groundbreaking 2015 work, they say that a
But whites with college degrees haven't suffered the same lack of economic opportunity, and haven't seen the same loss of life expectancy.
Case and Deaton, who are both at Princeton University, spoke with NPR's David Greene about what's driving these trends. The interview has been edited for brevity and clarity.
On the original discovery of rising mortality rates for middle-aged whites
Deaton: Mortality rates have been going down forever. There's been a huge increase in life expectancy and reduction in mortality over 100 years or more, and then
We knew the proximate causes — we know what they were dying from.
On what's driving these early deaths
Case: These deaths of despair have been accompanied by
In general, the longer you're in the labor force, the more you earn — in part because you understand your job better and you're more efficient at your job, you've had on-the-job training, you belong to a union, and so your wages go up with age. That's happened less and less the later and later you've been born and the later you enter this labor market.
Deaton: We're thinking of this in terms of something that's been going on for a long time, something that's emerged as the iceberg has risen out of the water.
On how mortality rates differ among races
On the geography of mortality rates
Case: There's not a part of the country that has not been touched by this.
But both states are [in the] top 10 for deaths of despair.

I have no idea where one would "store" a laptop on a motorcycle outside or even WHY one would do that unless the deal to deliver was going down.

Secret Service hunts for stolen laptop with Trump Tower floor plans
By Larry Celona, Tina Moore and Chris Perez
A Secret Service laptop containing sensitive information about Trump Tower, details about the Hillary Clinton e-mail probe and other national security secrets was swiped from an agent's motorcycle in Brooklyn
The computer was taken Thursday morning from the driveway of agent Marie Argentieri's Bath Beach home
The thief drove up to Argentieri's home around 8:40 a.m.,
walked right up to her Bajaj motorcycle and took the items.
He was then caught on video fleeing the scene on foot.
Argentieri told investigators that the laptop held sensitive information about national security,
floor plans for Trump Tower,
details about the investigation of Hillary Clinton's e-mail server.
A black bag with the Secret Service insignia on it was also taken — along with
an access keycard,
several lapel pins that Secret Service agents are required to wear when protecting the president and

The Panama Papers: Breaking the Story of How the Rich and Powerful Hide Their Money
"The biggest leak in the history of data journalism."
— Edward Snowden
"The authors expose a shockingly corrupt system ... A maddening, important indictment of the shadow economy that flourishes even as the legitimate economy suffers."
— Kirkus Reviews
"THE PANAMA PAPERS is a tale of fearless and careful reporting by Bastian Obermayer and Frederik Obermaier … How to follow the money — the lesson of the Watergate investigation a generation ago — has been given a reboot for the age of globalisation with this commendable account."
"Bastian Obermayer and Frederik Obermaier, the authors of this powerful, lucid, book, show us how the very rich hide their money…They should make journalists proud — and may even help to make the world a better place."
"Bringing such a major story to book form in such a short time (and then translating it from the original German) is a challenge, but this text serves as an excellent explanation of the investigative work and the findings. .. Highly recommended."
"With precision and purpose, THE PANAMA PAPERS is what 'Follow the Money' means."
—Bob Woodward, The Washington Post
"This is the inside story of how governments, corporations and organised crime groups have used the secret world of offshore jurisdictions to engage in systematic cheating and thieving. It's an almost perfect tale for the 21st century - the failure of democracy, the triumph of commercial power and greed, greed, greed."
— Nick Davies, special correspondent, The Guardian
About the Authors

The first people to have access to the Panama papers, they were previously part of the international team of journalists who revealed the Offshore Leaks, Luxembourg Leaks and Swiss Leaks. Frederik and Bastian live in Munich.
Top Customer Reviews
Amazing body of work based on a huge amount of private company data provided by an anonymous whistleblower employee of one of the most notorious law firms who set up shell companies offshore in international tax havens. The technical workings are beyond my knowledge of financial doings, but the writers make the points quite digestible as to the damage this "other world" of the super-wealthy does to society as a whole. EVERYONE who cares about income inequality should read this book!!! Only well-informed people can take the steps needed to force our government representatives to change the laws to the side of fairness and transparency.
What is really sad is that now, less than a year after the revelations of this book, the story has faded from the headlines and consciousness, at least in the United States (Twitter seems to indicate it's still active elsewhere, such as in Pakistan). The most scathing indictment of all is of the ethics of lawyers and the failure of our legal systems to protect us.

This is a book every member of the 99% should read! It tells how journalists united to learn how the wealthy, dictators, politicians, murderers and crooks of every type hide their "stolen" money and DO NOT PAY TAXES!!!!!!
Unbelievable bad sadly true. A masterpiece.

Well researched, amazing to hear how many powerful people utilize offshore accounts. The book does a great job setting the stage and explaining how this business came to be and why it is so successful for the worlds elite.
This is a fascinating and relatively quick read. I was expecting to see much more detail about specific transactions from the tax haven universe, but it turned out to be a memoir of the experience of uncovering a massive series of scandals. If you know nothing about offshore finance, and want an easy introduction, I absolutely recommend this. If you're an expert and want to understand how investigative journalists uncovered the details, it's also very good.
A must read. Now everyone can understand why corrupt politicians, dictators, drugs and arms dealers, FIFA officials, some non-profit organizations are all the same
like the data or information on this book, the writer is very detail describe or explain the process of investigation to gather, compile and interpreted the information ........ bravo ......
Good summary of the Panama Papers leakage, although the major part of the exposed offshore shenanigans had been already covered in the media.
An incredibly important book!
I could not put this book down. It was amazing to read how two journalists with the help of a whistleblower we should all be grateful for put together the most powerful attack to
Translated from German, I suppose, so grammar is weird.
This is a well researched and informative book which is a must read in todays world of tax havens. The writing is taut and the entre read is quite excellent!
This book recites names and dates and puts it together and calls it a book
excellent also for those working in a compliance department

Cell signaling is part of any communication process that governs basic activities of cells and coordinates all cell actions.
The ability of cells to perceive and correctly respond to their microenvironment is the basis of development, tissue repair, and immunity as well as normal tissue homeostasis.
Errors in signaling interactions and cellular information processing are responsible for diseases such as cancer, autoimmunity, and diabetes.
By understanding cell signaling, diseases may be treated more effectively and, theoretically, artificial tissues may be created.
Traditional work in biology has focused on studying individual parts of cell signaling pathways.
Systems biology research helps us to understand the underlying structure of cell signaling networks and how changes in these networks may affect the transmission and flow of information (signal transduction). Such networks are complex systems in their organization and may exhibit a number of emergent properties including bistability and ultrasensitivity.
Analysis of cell signaling networks requires a combination of experimental and theoretical approaches including the development and analysis of simulations and modeling. Long-range allostery is often a significant component of cell signaling events

I never saw any riots - I was all over the area but no hint of any problems where I frequented several miles away.

LA is a powder keg ready to blow so getting harder to avoid problems.
Even without any big political event you can be persecuted individually.
In California the problem is more likely a complete takeover of the government and assets by Mexico or Mexican drug kingpins.
Assisted by elections, guns, appointments to office, seize offices, etc.
They can get more $$$$ than by selling drugs!
They can take over CalPERS, STRS, all the big pension funds and banks.
Seize fancy houses for living in or resale.
Seize all the farm land.
Farm pot or whatever will bring most money.

When I was 9 years old I was visiting my aunt and uncle in Watts area of Los Angeles in 1965. I recall the National Guard with M1 Garands and bayonets fixed patrolling the streets below thier apt. A curfew was declared and I believe some were shot and killed. Fast forward to the Berkeley "Milo" riots of a couple of weeks ago. I watched extensive video where LE stood down and bystanders were left unprotected. City and University officials had decided property damage was acceptable. In realty I believe their political sentiments were with the black shirted Fascist rioters. LE take an oath to the US Constitution. However their pay and pensions are with the city and state. During Katrina I read where approximately 160 New Orleans Police quit or abandoned their posts. Some themselves resorted to looting.

Noam Chomsky: 'World Is Laughing At Claims Russia Hacked Election'
This interview took place at the University of Arizona, before a public audience, on February 2, 2017. I thank Marvin Waterstone for arranging the event, and Professor Chomsky, who approved this transcript for publication. The interview is presented in full, with only very slight editing for style. This interview originally appeared in the journal Class, Race, and Corporate Power. – D. Gibbs
Only the most naive liberal could possibly believe the DNC's talking point at this stage, Chomsky argues, as almost four months have passed since the losing Clinton campaign first made the claim – and since then absolutely no evidence has been produced.
"Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence," as Carl Sagan said.
But despite the lack of any evidence at all, mainstream media has run with the Democratic Party issued propaganda, giving "analysts" like John Podesta, now employed by the Washington Post as a columnist, a free pass to toss around lies and slander, without even threatening to produce any evidence.
Speaking at the University of Arizona, before a public audience, Professor Chomsky responded to a question about the mainstream media's role in reporting on the "Russian hacking".
"Most of the world is just collapsing in laughter. Suppose all the charges are true, I mean every single one, it is so amateurish by US standards that you can hardly even laugh."
Chomsky points out that the rest of the world know the United States would never let itself be "hacked" by a foreign country. Why? Because hacking foreign countries is what the United States does best. Nobody hacks the master hacker.
Chomsky: My guess is that most of the world is just collapsing in laughter. Suppose all the charges are true, I mean every single one, it is so amateurish by US standards that you can hardly even laugh. What the US does is the kind of thing I described in Italy in 1948. Case after case like that, not hacking or spreading rumors in the media; but saying look, we're going to starve you to death or kill you or destroy you unless you vote the way we want. I mean that's what we do.
. It happened: the first 9/11, it happened on September 11, 1973, in Chile. We did it.

> Thanks to the media’s investigation into the Trump campaign, speculation is growing that it is the Obama administration that could end up investigated for accusations one of its targets called “worse than Watergate.”
> Democrats are suddenly worried their “Russia hacked the election” narrative may boomerang into a catastrophe of their own making.
> Perhaps the first sign came Saturday when, as WND reported, former Obama speechwriter Jon Favreau responded cautiously to President Trump’s tweeted accusation that the Obama administration had spied on his campaign and wiretapped him.
> Favreau warned fellow Democrats in his own tweet: “I’d be careful about reporting that Obama said there was no wiretapping. Statement just said that neither he nor the WH (White House) ordered it.”
> Then these developments occurred in rapid succession:
>> 1) Obama former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper told NBC’s “Meet the Press” Sunday there was “no evidence” at all of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government.
>> 2) Leftist reporter and severe Trump critic Matt Taibbi warned in Rolling Stone on Wednesday of “big dangers for the press” and a “dangerous gamble” by the Democratic Party for pursuing a story that Clapper said was supported by no evidence.
>> 3) Conservative icon Rush Limbaugh observed Thursday that Trump’s tweet had forced Democrats to deny his campaign was under intense investigation by intelligence agencies during the Obama administration.
>> 4) Finally, former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy wrote in National Review Thursday that now that the big scandal is no longer possible Trump-campaign collusion with Russia, “It is that the Obama Justice Department may have used its legal authorities to investigate the Democrats’ top political adversary.”
> And that would, indeed, be a Watergate-level scandal.
> The question has become, as Limbaugh said, “[I]f there’s no investigation of Trump, then what have all these stories the past six months been?”
> End run around paper’s own standards
> Taibbi blamed shoddy reporting by the media – but mostly the New York Times.
> He scorched the media for “using the techniques of conspiracy theorists to push this Russia story.”
> The reporter accused the mainstream media of employing, essentially, fake news techniques, particularly by using phrases such as “so far,” “to date” and “as yet.”
> He also noted many of the revelations in stories have been more like speculations, “framed in terms of what they might mean, should other information surface.”
> Taibbi blasted the Times story about Trump surrogates having “repeated contacts” with Russian intelligence officials because it “not only didn’t explain whether the contacts were knowing or unknowing, it also brought up a host of other ‘dots’ in the Russia narrative for the reader to connect.”
> He cited the Times’ mention of “the bizarre (and unverified) dossier prepared by (former British intelligence agent) Christopher Steele.”
> Taibbi recounted how the dossier contained a raft of allegations and unsubstantiated claims that the Russians had embarrassing videos that could be used to blackmail Trump. And even though the FBI spent several months investigating the leads in the dossier, it had confirmed none of its most explosive claims.
> The reporter then made his most searing indictment of the Times: “These constructions are an end run around the paper’s own reporting standards.”
> He continued, “The Times by itself could never have run that ‘explosive’ Steele dossier, or mentioned the ’embarrassing videos’ – because the dossier material can’t be confirmed.”
> Taibbi warned of “big dangers” for the rest of the press if it followed the Times’ lead.
> “If we engage in Times-style gilding of every lily the leakers throw our way, and in doing so build up a fever of expectations for a bombshell reveal, but there turns out to be no conspiracy – Trump will be pre-inoculated against all criticism for the foreseeable future.”
> ‘You’re setting yourselves up for a big fail’
> Limbaugh warned the Times had already been caught in its own trap. And it could get worse. Much worse.
> He said “the whole Russians-stole-the-election theme is gone.”
> Limbaugh described Taibbi as an “extreme liberal,” whose story was a warning to Democrats, “saying you better be careful here, because you might get what you want, which is an investigation into what you’ve been doing.”
> “He’s warning them to walk this back and stop reporting on this with all these unnamed sources, that you’re setting yourselves up for a big fail.”
> The talk-radio star pointed out that the mainstream media narrative had been the Obama administration asked and received a warrant under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, or FISA, to surveil the Trump campaign and the Trump transition.
> So, why would the media now say Trump had no proof of his spying accusation?
> “It’s very simple: There has not been an investigation of Trump, folks. They have been lying about this. ‘Lying’ may be what’s happened, but it’s not the right way to — They have been hoping,” Limbaugh clarified.
> “There have been deep-state sources telling the media enough things that the media has hoped, and they’ve rolled the dice and believed, that there is eventually going to be proof that Trump was being surveilled, and the reason that Trump was being surveilled is because there is evidence of Trump collusion.”
> But, since it turned out there isn’t any evidence, as confirmed by Clapper himself, it had become clear “the Democrats were getting way ahead of themselves, the media getting way ahead of themselves. And Trump’s tweet back at them forced them to admit there wasn’t any.”
> And, Limbaugh concluded, the Democrats and the media “had to deny their own investigation, which was easy to do; there isn’t an investigation.”
> Because admitting there was an investigation of the GOP nominee would have been even worse.
> ‘Uh-oh moment for the media-Democrat complex’
> McCarthy took the scenario a step further, positing the evidence (reported by the Times, the BBC, the Guardian, Heatstreet and CIRCA, among others) indicated there was some kind of an investigation.
> The question has now become: An investigation of what?
> Someone was investigating something. All those leaks came from somewhere.
> McCarthy wrote that the Times referenced wiretapping in its Jan. 20 headline because it was needed to indicate the Trump campaign was suspected of wrongdoing.
> If the Times could maintain the FBI was investigating the Trump campaign, “the public might be induced to believe there must be something to it if the Bureau was investigating it.”
> “For four months,” he wrote, “the mainstream press was very content to have Americans believe — indeed, they encouraged Americans to believe — that a vigorous national-security investigation of the Trump presidential campaign was ongoing. ‘A counterintelligence investigation,’ the New York Times called it.”
> But when the proof failed to emerge, and even Clapper shot down the story, “the risk the Democrats were running became clear.”
> And suddenly the downside became clearly enormous.
> “If the FBI had been investigating whether the Trump campaign colluded in purported ‘Russian hacking of the election,’ that meant the incumbent Obama administration must have been investigating the campaign of the opposition party’s presidential candidate.”
> And, the former federal prosecutor observed, if such an investigation had involved national-security wiretaps under FISA, “that would suggest that the Obama Justice Department had alleged, in court, that Trump associates had acted as ‘agents of a foreign power’ — in this case, Russia.”
> McCarthy then dropped the hammer.
> If, as Clapper confirmed, the big scandal isn’t hacking, “It is that the Obama Justice Department may have used its legal authorities to investigate the Democrats’ top political adversary.”
> Combined with the same Obama Justice Department “bending over backward to whitewash the extremely serious criminal case against the Democrats’ nominee, Hillary Clinton. It would have meant Obama had his thumb on the election scale.”
> And that would be a Watergate-level scandal.
> McCarthy noted that “even if Trump’s allegation was false, the tweets demanded attention to the real scandal: Was the Obama administration investigating the Trump campaign?”
> And that was the “uh-oh moment for the media-Democrat complex. That was when it dawned on them not only that the election-hacking conspiracy narrative wasn’t working, but that the investigation of the Trump campaign could be a much bigger scandal.”
> That’s why, he mused, the media decided that it better adopt a different strategy: “Investigation? What investigation?”
> As McCarthy told WND earlier in the week, “Now that they’re being called on the scandal of investigating the opposition party’s candidate, they are in retreat and claiming that there was no investigation of the campaign.”
> And now McCarthy wants to know who knew what, and when did they know it.
> “Let’s see the FISA applications and warrants. If there was no targeting of the Trump campaign, as the media and Democrats now say, let’s hear an explanation of why they’ve pretended otherwise for four months. If the Trump campaign was targeted for an investigation, let’s hear why.”
> ‘Probably the biggest scandal in U.S. history’
> The Times had identified three named targets of the Trump investigation as Paul Manafort, Roger Stone and Carter Page.
> Manafort had been Trump’s campaign manager but was dumped in August, well before the FISA order allowing the wiretap was reportedly issued in October. Page is an investor. Stone is a friend of Trump and Manafort’s former political-consulting business partner.
> On Thursday, Stone wrote a commentary piece in the Daily Caller, titled “Worse than Watergate,” in which he stated: “We are on the cusp of what is probably the biggest scandal in U.S. history. The deep state has sought to undermine President Trump through a series of illegal leaks and
