Stanford study links depression to blood biomarker

A new study suggests low levels of a specific biomarker in your blood is linked to the severity and duration of depression.

The collaborative study conducted by Stanford University and The Rockefeller University found people with depression had low levels of acetyl-L-carnitine, which helps the body produce energy.

Although it’s naturally produced in the body, acetyl-L-carnitine is also available for purchase at drug stores and other retailers as a nutritional supplement.

Nationals Beat Mets 25-4 For Worst Loss In Mets History

It is obviously not so simple as this, but when a team, especially one as desperately crummy as the New York Mets, decides to stand pat at the trade deadline, the front office (or perhaps ownership, in this instance) is saying to fans and to the players, “This is fine.” Is this fine? Mere hours after the deadline passed, the Mets went out and lost to the Nationals .

25-4! What a game. This one was 19-0 after five, and 25-1 after eight.

3D gun blueprint downloads suspended, but they’re already out there – CNN

(CNN)If you’re looking to download the blueprints for how to make a plastic gun using a 3D printer, you can’t — yet — get them online from a site distributing them legally.

A federal judge Tuesday night blocked a settlement that would have allowed Defense Distributed, a Texas-based gun rights organization, to legally post blueprints for 3D-printable guns.
But hundreds of designs reportedly were downloaded before the judge’s decision, meaning those designs are out there — legally or not.

Blandford’s Entire Police Force Quits, Citing Unsafe Conditions « CBS Boston

The entire four-member police department of a small western Massachusetts town has resigned, citing poor equipment and unsafe working conditions.

The officers said the town’s police cruisers are in such bad shape they often have to answer calls in their personal vehicles. They said their police radios don’t work in some parts of the town and bulletproof vests are beyond their expiration dates and fit poorly to begin with.

Town officials say emergency calls will be answered by Massachusetts State Police, which released a statement Tuesday saying it will “assume any additional duties required in the wake of the resignations of local officers.”
