Bacteria in a slice of brain tissue, to the left of a blood vessel (Roberts et al) by PETER DOCKRILL The microbes that inhabit the human gut are thought to be responsible for many things, affecting our health, our genes, and even our emotions. Scientists are continually making new discoveries about the scale and influence of the human microbiome, but the latest evidence is particularly startling: this thriving bacterial kingdom might not be alone, but could be linked to a separate “human brain microbiome” that resides in your head.

By Matt Patterson And so we have arrived, in the Brett Kavanaugh affair, the inevitable and ultimate apotheosis of #MeToo – the vilification of men qua men. Now, one accusation alone – no matter how unsubstantiated and uncorroborated – is enough to ruin a man’s reputation, nullify his accomplishments and erase his opportunities…for life. This is apparently the standard set, and accepted, by roughly half of the country as represented by the Democrat party. We have thus entered something new and dangerous.
