"Treating Mesothelioma"

noreply@blogger.com (Coyote Prime) at Running 'Cause I Can't Fly - 5 minutes ago
*"How to Improve Prognosis for Stage 4 Mesothelioma"* by Ashley Stafford "Mesothelioma is a serious disease where cancer cells form in the tissue lining that covers the heart, lungs, testicles, or in the lining of the chest wall/abdominal wall. There are various factors that can affect a patient’s mesothelioma prognosis and staging is one of them. Every stage calls for different treatments, which in turn, results in a different prognosis. There are four stages: stage 1, stage 2, stage 3 and stage 4. The mesothelioma prognosis for stage 4 yields the worst results as it is the most ... more »

Trump And Putin Sittin' In A Tree?

DownWithTyranny at DownWithTyranny! - 2 hours ago
The case being made that Putin successfully swung the U.S. election to Trump isn't proven yet-- at least not for a court. But it is for me. And it has nothing to do with claims from Hillary Clinton and her campaign operatives. Putin's interference in European elections and the tactics that he's used there to help destabilize NATO and to bolster the cause of far right extremists isn't a secret, although many Americans-- including progressives-- can't imagine that it could happen-- could have happened-- here. In January, Congress asked James Clapper to investigate clandestine Russia... more »

"Consider The Following..."

"Consider the following. We humans are social beings. We come into the world as the result of others' actions. We survive here in dependence on others. Whether we like it or not, there is hardly a moment of our lives when we do not benefit from others' activities. For this reason it is hardly surprising that most of our happiness arises in the context of our relationships with others. Nor is it so remarkable that our greatest joy should come when we are motivated by concern for others. But that is not all. We find that not only do altruistic actions bring about happiness but they a... more »

Yes it is Black Friday in BOTH the United States and even up here in Canada.... Due to the incredibly ridiculous rush of Canadians to travel south of the border on this day and in an attempt to keep most of those shoppers from Canada right here at home, 3 years ago major retailers in Canada decided to launch their own retail mayhem here in Canada on this date as well....

"How should we be able to forget those ancient myths that are at the beginning of all peoples, the myths about dragons that at the last moment turn into princesses; perhaps all the dragons of our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us once beautiful and brave.

Then the hostess says, “Would you like another piece?” I politely decline. In her head, she is thinking “he hates my pie,” but this is totally wrong. I love her pie, especially the first piece. But the second piece has slipped from A to B in my preference ranking, and “no pie” has moved from B to A.

"All day I think about it, then at night I say it. Where did I come from, and what am I supposed to be doing? I have no idea. My soul is from elsewhere, I'm sure of that, and I intend to end up there. Who looks out with my eyes? What is the soul? I cannot stop asking. If I could taste one sip of an answer, I could break out of this prison for drunks. I didn't come here of my own accord, and I can't leave that way. Whoever brought me here, will have to take me home." - Rumi, "The Tavern," Ch. 1:, p. 2, from "The Essential Rumi"

*“I Worried”* “ I worried a lot. Will the garden grow, will the rivers flow in the right direction, will the earth turn as it was taught, and if not how shall I correct it? Was I right, was I wrong, will I be forgiven, can I do better? Will I ever be able to sing, even the sparrows can do it and I am, well, hopeless. Is my eyesight fading or am I just imagining it, am I going to get rheumatism, lockjaw, dementia? Finally I saw that worrying had come to nothing. And gave it up. And took my old body and went out into the morning, and sang.” - Mary Oliver

I hope that the U.S. readers have enjoyed their Thanksgiving. Turkey seems like a natural topic these days. *I am not a fan of Daniel Landa and it seems right to classify his singing as out-of-tune (plus plain talk) but this well-known Czech song is titled "Thanksgiving" so it may get the right to look for fans outside Czechia.

Did Trump Rebuild The Reagan Majority?

arclein at Terra Forming Terra - 22 hours ago
All things been equal and considering Trump's Agenda, he is also firmly on the road to mobilize an additional four to five percent via his 2020 election. That is just how awful the prognosis for the Democrats happens to be. Worse we clearly now understand just what the Reagan Majority consists of and also how expandable it happens to be. The bulk of Blacks, Hispanics and the poor generally aspire to been in that particular population.

Maybe now we can finally stop trying to imitate the Chinese State Press? Half the population forcefully rejected the whole Leftist agenda in every way shape and form. That unrest was there and Donald simply articulated it. Once this population found their place to go they went without hesitation. Against all this the press was mostly blind or pretended to be and pushed the Obama story line of the past two terms. Hilary made the mistake of accepting the premise and failed to change the subject back to the economy which she may have made work for her. That tack may have saved... more »

Michael Moore, Who Predicted Trump Win, Calls for Democratic Party Takeover

arclein at Terra Forming Terra - 22 hours ago
Yes that would be a good start. The more serious problem for what has been described as the left leaning constituency is just what policies will now work for them. I do believe that the only viable policy going forward is to eliminate poverty while linking that economic base to actual credit creation. Yet i do not see how either party is capable of handling such a leap of the imagination. What will happen though is that the contraction of the global fiat currency bubble will continue for a long time until the third world begins to produce superior financial secur... more »
