Chronic Pain and Memory

This is a fas­ci­nat­ing arti­cle with excel­lent sources. Chron­ic pain is ter­ri­ble. A new way of under­stand­ing it may help. The past two cen­turies have pro­duced a cas­cade of life-alter­ing advances in med­i­cine, yet we have been unable to deal with one seem­ing­ly straight­for­ward con­di­tion: chron­ic pain. It affects 1 in 5 peo­ple around the world, […]

Unvaccinated People Increase Risk for Vaccinated People

I can’t say that I’m sur­prised. Remain­ing unvac­ci­nat­ed increas­es risk to the vac­ci­nat­ed, says U of T COVID study Peo­ple who are unvac­ci­nat­ed against COVID-19 not only place them­selves at greater risk of get­ting infect­ed by the virus, but also increase the infec­tion risk of those around them who have rolled up their sleeves for a […]

Blogging Again and New Depression Treatment

I’ve decid­ed to try going back to post­ing on my blog more fre­quent­ly rather than on all the var­i­ous social media plat­forms, so you’re going to hear more from me! This sto­ry is def­i­nite­ly excit­ing to me as some­one who has been treat­ed for (treat­­ment-resis­­tant) major depres­sive dis­or­der for over thir­ty years. I’ve tried tran­scra­nial magnetic […]

Who do you trust with your children?

I keep see­ing news sto­ries about kids dying in day­care or at the hands of oth­er peo­ple to whom their par­ents have entrust­ed them, and every time there is so much shock and rage as if peo­ple can’t believe it’s hap­pen­ing. I am so tired of it. Pay atten­tion!  How many of the peo­ple in […]

Where do first amendment rights go when you enter a courtroom?

I’m not even talk­ing about the rights of defen­dants or plain­tiffs, but those of peo­ple who are oth­er­wise present in a court­room who aren’t being dis­rup­tive. How much con­trol do judges actu­al­ly need in order to main­tain order in the court­room? At what point are they sim­ply being pet­ty tyrants?

WTF? Georgia Senate Threatens to Secede!

Geor­gia Sen­ate threat­ens dis­man­tling of USA They real­ly did, by a vote of 43–1. On April 1, but it was­n’t an April Fool’s joke. The res­o­lu­tion goes on to endorse the the­o­ry that states have the right to abridge con­sti­tu­tion­al free­doms of reli­gion, press and speech. Accord­ing to the res­o­lu­tion, it is up to the states […]

I missed what?

It was Nation­al Gram­mar Day AND Gamemas­ter’s Day, and I did­n’t real­ize either until the day was almost over! It was date night, though, and my favorite GM and I did play, so at least there’s that. I’ll have to get him a make-up present, though. Do you know all those dif­fer­ent click-to-give sites? I […]

Urgent! AB+ blood donors needed in Atlanta!

ETA: This was post­ed in Feb­ru­ary 2009. I haven’t heard of any ongo­ing need, so I think we can assume that the lit­tle one is healthy now. Thank you for all your kind offers of help! I just received this from Elise Witt, who received it from a fac­ul­ty friend at GSU: Pro­fes­sor Anu Bour­geois delivered […]

Linky Linky

You know all those sto­ries and wor­ries about immu­niza­tions con­tribut­ing to autism? For­get them. The doc­tor who wrote the study that start­ed the scare back in 1998 has been charged with “fix­ing” the data. What’s more, the “study” only involved twelve patients! The sec­ond sto­ry is a very good arti­cle about how the obe­si­ty scare […]
