Alistair Overeem has tested positive for elevated levels of testosterone and must now appear before the Nevada Athletic Commission before he can be licensed to fight at UFC 146.
NAC Executive Director Keith Kizer emailed the test results on Wednesday. The No. 1 contender for the UFC heavyweight title, Overeem is slated to take on champion Junior dos Santos on May 26 in Las Vegas. However, that booking now appears to be in jeopardy.
According to Kizer, Overeem’s testosterone to epitestosterone (T/E) ratio was greater than 10-to-1, exceeding the allowable 6-to-1 limit. Along with five other competitors, “The Demolition Man” was tested following a UFC 146 press conference in Las Vegas on March 27. Frank Mir, Roy Nelson, Antonio Silva, Cain Velasquez and Junior dos Santos all produced negative tests.
The surprise test marked the first of two randomly administered screens Overeem had been ordered to submit prior to his May 26 outing as per the terms of the conditional license he was granted to compete at UFC 141.
Overeem had been asked to submit a pre-fight urine sample prior to his Dec. 30 clash with Brock Lesnar, but he was unable to immediately comply due to his travel between the United States and the Netherlands. Days later, Overeem submitted a sample to an approved facility in the United Kingdom and was cleared to fight on the condition that he undergo additional testing after the bout. The Dutchman dominated Lesnar in the UFC 141 main event later that month, earning a first-round technical knockout to claim his stake as the No. 1 contender for dos Santos’ belt.

13  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Mixed Martial Arts (MMA/UFC) / Strikeforce women’s champion Santos suspended for steroids on: January 07, 2012, 12:35:55 PM

The baddest woman on the planet tested positive for anabolic steroids the day before her most devastating career win, according to a release sent out Friday by the California State Athletic Commission.

Cristiane Justino Santos, 26, the Strikeforce women’s featherweight champion, better known as “Cyborg,” tested positive for the anabolic steroid Stanazolol, also known as Winstrol. The test took place on Dec. 16, the day before she knocked out the top contender for the title, Japan’s Hiroko Yamanaka, in 16 seconds.

 According to Dana White, Santos has been stripped of her championship.

More From Dave MeltzerLawal wants to break through Strikeforce ceiling Jan 5, 2012 Boxing's Pacquiao remains the PPV king, so what can UFC do to compete? Jan 4, 2012 The result of the fight held on the Dec. 17 Strikeforce show at the Valley View Casino Center in San Diego has been overturned by the commission and ruled a no contest.

“Our primary concern is for the health and safety of fighters,” CSAC Executive Officer George Dodd said in a press release sent out on Friday.

“Anabolic agents and other banned substances put not only the users of those agents at risk, but their opponents as well. The commission simply will not tolerate their use.”

The release stated that the commission received the test results on Dec. 23 from the World Anti-Doping Agency lab at UCLA.

The release didn’t state the length of time of the suspension, but that it would start retroactively on Dec. 16. In the past, California has suspended fighters who have failed steroid tests for one year. Santos, generally considered the best female fighter in the world, has the right to appeal the suspension.

Calls to the commission for comment stated that Dodd had left the office and would be unavailable until Monday.

In its history, the UFC on three occasions has suspended sitting champions after positive steroids test. Josh Barnett was the first, as he tested positive around his 2002 victory over Randy Couture for the heavyweight title in Las Vegas; Tim Sylvia failed in 2003 after a successful title defense against Gan McGee, also in Las Vegas; and lightweight champion Sean Sherk failed in California in 2007 after a title defense against Hermes Franca.

In all three cases, the champions were stripped of their titles.

Stanazolol is the anabolic agent that sprinter Ben Johnson tested positive for in the 1988 Olympics. It is used in weight-class sports because it is believed to lead to increases or maintenance of strength levels while cutting weight to make a weight class.

Generally, injectable Stanazolol clears one’s system when it comes to urine tests in about two months, while the oral version clears in three weeks.

Santos, like most fighters, walks around significantly higher than her weight class and in the past has had trouble making weight (145 pounds).

With a physique reminiscent of a female bodybuilder, Santos had been the most dominant female fighter on the U.S. scene ever since her arrival from Brazil in 2008. She became the first Strikeforce women’s champion on August 15, 2009, when she stopped Gina Carano at the HP Pavilion in San Jose before 13,976 fans. It was the first time a woman’s fight was the main event of a major boxing or MMA show, and the match set ratings records for MMA on Showtime. The fight was the most searched item on Yahoo! and the single most talked about topic in the world that night on Twitter.

Santos, who was noted for fighting with a wild, aggressive, crowd-pleasing style, was too physically strong for Carano that night and finished her with strikes on the ground at 4:59 of Round 1. But Santos’ fights since that time have not generated the same level of interest, and the fight with Yamanaka was the first for Santos in 19 months after a lengthy contract dispute.

Originally a standout handball player, she began fighting at the age of 19. A native of Curitiba, Brazil, she started at the same academy that produced Wanderlei Silva, to whom her fighting style has always been compared, and Mauricio “Shogun” Rua. She married Evangelista “Cyborg” Santos, a well-known fighter who became a star in Japan and at one time challenged for the Strikeforce welterweight title.

The couple moved to San Diego, where she teaches and trains at a gym called The Arena.

18  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Chris Christie vetoes ‘Jersey Shore’ tax break on: September 26, 2011, 07:36:05 PM

Chris Christie is a virulent opponent of taxes. But not when it comes to the "Jersey Shore."

The New Jersey governor on Monday vetoed a tax break that would have benefited the popular MTV reality franchise.

"I have no interest in policing the content of such projects," the governor announced in a letter. "However, as chief  executive I am duty-bound to ensure that taxpayers are not footing a $420,000 bill for a project which does nothing more than perpetuate misconceptions about the State and its citizens."

The state Economic Development Authority earlier this month approved a $420,000 tax credit--dubbed the 'Snooki subsidy'-- for production costs related to the 2009 season of "Jersey Shore." The tax incentive was designed to encourage film and television companies to invest in the state. But Christie has long said the program was wasteful.

The credit's specific connection to "Jersey Shore" also drew significant criticism from lawmakers and others who have long derided the show's portrayal of their home state.

"What it does is it takes a bunch of New Yorkers, who are--most of the people on 'Jersey Shore' are New Yorkers--takes a bunch of New Yorkers, drops them at the Jersey shore, and tries to make America feel like this is New Jersey," Christie said on ABC's "This Week" last year. He called the show "negative for New Jersey."

19  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Conspiracy Theories Board / New Twin Tower Collapse Model Could Squash 9/11 Conspiracies on: September 22, 2011, 08:15:20 PM
Many 9/11 conspiracy theories revolve around explosions that were seen and heard in the World Trade Center's Twin Towers prior to their collapse. Despite scientific investigations that have explained the processes that brought down the skyscrapers, some conspiracy theorists suggest the plane impacts were just red herrings, to distract from the fact that 9/11 was an "inside job" — that explosives had been implanted earlier in the World Trade Center buildings and were what really brought them down.

Now a materials scientist has come up with a more scientific explanation for the mystery booms, and says his model of the Twin Towers collapse leaves no room for conspiracies. "My model explains all the observed features on 11th September: the explosions, molten metal coming out of the window, the time passing between the crash and the collapse, the fact that the explosions took place in a floor below the place it was burning, and the rapid collapse," Christen Simensen of SINTEF, a research organization in Norway, told Life's Little Mysteries.

As detailed in the new issue of Aluminum International Today, Simensen argues that molten aluminum from the airplane bodies chemically reacted with water in the buildings' sprinkler systems, setting off the explosions that felled the Twin Towers. [Did Nostradamus Really Predict the 9/11 Terrorist Attacks?]

Chain of events

When each jet cut its way into a building, it took with it parts of walls and ceilings, Simensen said. Steel bars in those walls would have gashed its fuel tanks, which would have caught fire. With the plane positioned somewhere in the middle of the building, blanketed in debris and with no route for heat to escape, the temperature would have rapidly escalated, reaching 660 degrees Celsius (1,220 degrees Fahrenheit), the melting point of aluminum — of which there was 30 tons in each plane fuselage — within an hour. The molten aluminum would then have heated up further to between 800 and 850 C (1,470 and 1,560 F).

"Then molten aluminum becomes [as liquid as] water and has so much heat that it will flow through cracks in the floor and down to the next floor," Simensen explained in an email. There was an automatic sprinkler system installed in each ceiling, and it was filled with water. "When huge amount of molten aluminum gets in contact with water, a fierce exothermic reaction will take place, enormous amount of hydrogen is formed and the temperature is locally raised to 1,200 to 1,500 C," or 2,200 to 2,700 F.

Chaos rapidly ensues: "A series of explosions will take place and a whole floor will be blown to pieces," he wrote. "Then the top part of the building will fall on the bottom part, and the tower will collapse within seconds." This is what Simensen believes happened in the two World Trade Center towers.

This isn't obscure chemistry, Simensen says; the U.S. Aluminum Association has recorded 250 accidental molten aluminum/water explosions worldwide since 1980. "Alcoa in Pittsburgh [the worldwide leader in aluminum production] has done a series of such explosions in special laboratory in order to understand what can prevent such explosions and what are the most dangerous situations," he wrote. "For instance they let 30 kilograms [66 pounds] of aluminum react with 20 liters [5.3 gallons] of water, which resulted in a large hole 30 meters [98 feet] in diameter, and nothing left of the laboratory."

The third tower

A third building, World Trade Center 7, fell eight hours after the others. Scientists explained that this happened because of fires that ignited in the building upon the collapse of WTC 1, but some conspiracy theorists take it as further proof that the impacts of the hijacked airplanes weren't what brought any of the buildings down.

Simensen says his theory does not challenge the accepted scientific explanation of the collapse of WTC7.

"The official governmental report said the collapse [of World Trade Center 1 and 2] was due to overheating steel bars in the buildings and did not mention anything about explosions. Their theory … can be used to explain why WTC7 … collapsed. This collapse took place after eight hours of fire and was much slower than the collapse of WTC 1 and WTC 2," Simensen wrote. [10 Ways 9/11 Impacted Science]

Fiery reaction

Simensen's new collapse model has not gained immediate acceptance by proponents of earlier models.

"Occam's Razor says that the simplest explanation is usually the best," said Thomas Eagar, a materials scientist at MIT who has also studied the fall of the towers. "I do not see any merit to this new, more-complex explanation. Any firefighter trying to extinguish a fire without having the water or the electricity shut off will tell you that there will be periodic explosions from inside the building. I don't need to invoke some water/molten aluminum theory to explain this."

Eagar also objects to the notion that the aluminum, if it did melt, would definitely have reacted with the water it encountered. Most of the time when water is sprayed on molten aluminum, "there is no explosion because the water turns to steam and excludes the oxygen, preventing the growth of the combustion," he said.

Along similar lines, Zdenek Bazant, a professor of mechanical engineering at Northwestern University who was first to model how fires could have caused steel columns in the towers to buckle (leading to the buildings' collapses), thinks that the official explanation suffices. "I've explained it in six papers in leading journals," Bazant said. In his opinion, all factors related to the collapse have been accounted for.

But not everyone in the industry agrees with the simpler, official explanation. Roughly 1,600 architects and structural engineers across the country, who have banded together in a group called "Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth," say it does not fully account for the buildings' collapses. With so many people looking for answers, Simensen's alternative theory is likely to receive further attention and study.

On Wednesday August 17, 2011, 11:43 pm EDT
WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Justice Department is investigating whether the Standard & Poor's credit ratings agency improperly rated dozens of mortgage securities in the years leading up to the financial crisis, The New York Times reported Wednesday.

The investigation began before Standard & Poor's cut the United States' AAA credit rating this month, but it's likely to add to the political firestorm created by the downgrade, the newspaper said. Some government officials have since questioned the agency's secretive process, its credibility and the competence of its analysts, claiming to have found an error in its debt calculations.

The Times cites two people interviewed by the government and another briefed on such interviews as its sources. According to people with knowledge of the interviews, the Justice Department has been asking about instances in which the company's analysts wanted to award lower ratings on mortgage bonds but may have been overruled by other S&P business managers.

If the government finds enough evidence to support a case, it could undercut S&P's longstanding claim that its analysts act independently from business concerns. The newspaper said it was unclear whether the Justice Department investigation involves the other two major ratings agencies, Moody's and Fitch, or only S&P.

S&P and other ratings agencies reaped record profits as they bestowed their highest ratings on bundles of troubled mortgage loans, which made the mortgages appear less risky and thus more valuable. They failed to anticipate the deterioration that would come in the housing market and devastate the financial system.

Companies and some countries -- but not the United States -- pay the credit ratings agencies to receive a rating, the financial market's version of a seal of approval. Before the financial crisis, banks shopped around to make sure rating agencies would award favorable ratings before agreeing to work with them. These banks paid as much as $100,000 for ratings on mortgage bond deals, according to the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission, the Times said.

Critics say this business model is riddled with conflicts of interest since ratings agencies might make their grades more positive to please their customers.

The Times said the Securities and Exchange Commission also has been investigating possible wrongdoing at S&P, citing a person interviewed on that matter.

Ed Sweeney, a spokesman for S&P, said in an email to the Times: "S&P has received several requests from different government agencies over the last few years. We continue to cooperate with these requests. We do not prevent such agencies from speaking with current or former employees."

Representatives of the Justice Department and the SEC declined to comment on whether they are investigating the ratings agencies, the newspaper said.
