Injections of ‘platelet-rich plasma’ already used to combat ageing on the face and hands
Study on volunteers showed significant hair regrowth on bald spots
Balding men would do almost anything to have a full head of hair, but the latest ‘cure’ might be a painful step too far even for them.
Scientists have been able to regrow hair on bald patches by injecting the heads of follicular-challenged volunteers with a solution from their [...]

‘Long-term greedy” was the phrase that Sidney Weinberg, Goldman Sachs’s legendary managing partner from the 1930s to the 1960s, used to describe the American investment bank’s overarching strategy. Such a pious mission statement from a corporate titan would make a modern audience balk. However the phrase neatly encapsulates the way that Goldman Sachs has operated over the past 80 years, a period in which it has risen from [...]

The hacks at the State House are salivating at the prospect of charging you a penny for every mile you drive your car in Massachusetts.
This is a tax increase so monstrous that it would make M. Stanley Dukakis blush. We’re talking $555 million — the first year.
It’s an idea so terrible it can’t be killed. Like a vampire, it keeps coming back to life, and the stake [...]
Last night in New York City Obama and Clinton held a joint fundraiser. Bill Clinton had to remind everyone of the difference between his presidency and Obama’s
“And, I care about the long term debt of the country a lot. Remember me, I’m the only guy that gave you four surplus budgets out of the eight I sent.”

President Obama’s campaign is out with a tough new ad, “Steel,” attacking former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney’s record on job creation.
The two-minute ad focuses on GS Technologies, a steel mill in Kansas City, Mo., that was bought by Romney’s private equity firm Bain Capital and went bankrupt soon after.
The ad paints Romney as out of touch with the needs of the local workers and concerned only [...]
FRIDAY 4:30 PM UPDATE: Remember that these reports from my sources are still early. Warner Bros’ vampire sendup of the vintage TV series Dark Shadowsbegan its release weekend by making a so-so $550K during midnight screenings overnight. But the re-teaming of Johnny Depp and Tim Burton is a disappointment. It isn’t drawing blood at the box office by only creeping out of the gate with about $10M today for at best a $32M weekend unless there’s [...]
There’s tax avoidance, tax evasion and, according to Goldman Sachs boss Lord Blankfein, now there’s tax deferral.
The London arm of the great vampire squid paid only £4.1m in corporation tax to the Treasury last year. Despite pocketing £1.9bn in pre-tax profits.
Lord Blankfein’s investment bank received a tax bill of £422.3m for 2011 but has put off paying 99pc of it until next year.
Just to put that in context that’s 38pc [...]
Today multi-billionaire Hugo Salinas Price told King World News a complete catastrophe is unfolding in Europe. He also called Fed Chairman Bernanke “a vampire” and urged people to hold gold and silver because they will be the last things standing. But first, Salinas Price warned about the serious dangers we are facing: “I think that unless we see legislation, somewhere, that is rational and recognizes that gold and silver are really [...]
Pete Townshend, the legendary frontman behind British rock group The Who, attacked Apple’s online iTunes service for bleeding artists “like a digital vampire”.
Townshend, speaking in Manchester in northwest England, called on the online giant to do more to help the artists from whom it was making so much money.
“Is there really any good reason why, just because iTunes exists in the wild west Internet land of Facebook and Twitter, it can’t provide some aspect [...]

Nov. 4 2010 – 4:42 pm
Itâ€™s expensive to argue with Goldman Sachs, the bank that Matt Taibbi so famously described as â€œa great vampire squid wrapped around the face of humanity.â€ Thatâ€™s what a former Goldman computer programmer has found, and heâ€™s asking for cash.
