Re: “Duke's Bob Lefkowitz wins the Nobel Prize

I'm sure Lefkowitz wouldn't let Kroll work in his lab. Kroll makes an egregious physiological error when he presumes to explain in Biochemistry 101 (pg 18) that ACTH released from the pituitary acts on the adrenal to release adrenaline. An undergraduate student would know that ACTH acts on the adrenal cortex to release the adrenal cortical hormones, not Adrenaline. Adrenaline is released from the part of the adrenal called the medulla, not by ACTH but by the neurotransmitter, acetylcholine released from preganglionic sympathetic nerves which innervate the adrenal medulla. Kroll needs to retake 101.

Re: “Django Unchained

Fellerath is wrong both about the explosive and the rifle used in the long distance kill neither of which he believes was invented at the time the movie was set.
1. It of course wasn't dynamite which had not been invented: it was gunpowder which was invented by the ancient Chinese and which was the basis of mixtures widely used for mining prior to dynamite. In the movie Django in fact acquires the explosive from transporters employed by a mining company.
2. Fellerath found the long distance kill unrealistic because the rifle employed was not available in 1858. Wrong, the gun was a Sharp Co. rifle which came out in 1848 The Sharp was very accurate and did have a very long range.

Dont you have anyone check facts? Often wrong, never in doubt
