by Diane Knaus
4-27-2016 He appeared today in a wheelchair in court for his sentense for sexual crimes against young boys. U.S. District Judge Thomas Durkin sentensed him to 15 months in prison. Hmm, that doesn't seem very much for what he did to the young boys. Maybe the sentence should be protested.More Here

4-27-2016 According to the CDC: High blood pressure, high cholesterol, and smoking are key risk factors for heart disease. About half of Americans (47%) have at least one of these three risk factors.
Several other medical conditions and lifestyle choices can also put people at a higher risk for heart disease, including these Five conditions:

Diabetes Drug, Metformin, Lowers Risk of Heart Disease Deaths Better Than Sulfonylureas, New Analysis Shows
4-26-2016 A new analysis of 204 studies involving more than 1.4 million people suggests that metformin, the most frequently prescribed stand-alone drug for type 2 diabetes, reduces the relative risk of a patient dying from heart disease by about 30 to 40 percent compared to its closest competitor drug, sulfonylurea.
The study, designed to assess the comparative — not absolute or individual — benefits and risks of more than a dozen FDA-approved drugs for lowering blood sugar in type 2 diabetes, is described in the April 19 issue of the Annals of Internal Medicine. Diabetes now affects almost 10 percent of the U.S. population and poses a growing public health threat, and most people will eventually need drug treatment, the researchers say.More Here
Bruce Springsteen "The Boss"Makes a Statement on North Carolina Prejudice Laws:
As you, my fans, know I’m scheduled to play in Greensboro, North Carolina this Sunday. As we also know, North Carolina has just passed HB2, which the media are referring to as the “bathroom” law. HB2 — known officially as the Public Facilities Privacy and Security Act — dictates which bathrooms transgender people are permitted to use. Just as important, the law also attacks the rights of LGBT citizens to sue when their human rights are violated in the workplace. No other group of North Carolinians faces such a burden. To my mind, it’s an attempt by people who cannot stand the progress our country has made in recognizing the human rights of all of our citizens to overturn that progress. Right now, there are many groups, businesses, and individuals in North Carolina working to oppose and overcome these negative developments. Taking all of this into account, I feel that this is a time for me and the band to show solidarity for those freedom fighters. As a result, and with deepest apologies to our dedicated fans in Greensboro, we have canceled our show scheduled for Sunday, April 10th. Some things are more important than a rock show and this fight against prejudice and bigotry — which is happening as I write — is one of them. It is the strongest means I have for raising my voice in opposition to those who continue to push us backwards instead of forwards. Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band’s Sunday April 10th show is canceled. Tickets will be refunded at point of purchase.Thsis from his brucespringsteen.netReleased on his Facebook page today 4-8-2016.

3-31-2016 “This is an unbelievably exciting day for our hospital and our team, but more importantly for patients living with both HIV and end-stage organ disease. For these individuals, this could mean a new chance at life,” says Dorry L. Segev, M.D., Ph.D., professor of surgery at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. Following the passage of the HIV Organ Policy Equity Act of 2013 and more recent approval from the United Network for Organ Sharing, a multidisciplinary team from Johns Hopkins Medicine recently performed the world’s first-ever HIV-to-HIV liver transplant and the United States’ first-ever HIV-to-HIV kidney transplant.

US Constitution 2nd Amendment Right to bear arms
3-3-2016 We in America are plagued by people murdering each other at any time of the day, son to father, husband to wife, and innocent bystanders. The amendment addresses none of those things. Nor does it address how many firearms anyone has or what the do with them. Nor does it take into acount the mental strength of anyone possessing arms.The amendment reads as follow:
"A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms. shall not be infringed."
That's it folks, that is all of what it says.
Our Constitution came into force in 1789, it has been amended twenty-seven times. The first President was George Washington and we don't know what our poulation was at that time. This country was wild with men carrying guns everywhere for personal protection. But, times have changes since then. We have all becme more civilized, or at least mostof us learned to live in peace with each other.

We ctizens of America were founded by refugees of sorts! People fleeing with Christopher Columbus in his fleet of three ships( The Nina, The Pinta and the Santa Maria) were fleeing from England from unfair prosecution, and for religious freedom. We can't just keep every refugee out of ours and other countries now because that is not fair. Not all reufgees commit crimes against nature or each other! Most are trying to get away from massive oppression.
