FDA Approves New Blood Thinner

Late Friday, the FDA announced that they were approving a new drug -- Effient, Eli Lilly's new blood thinner -- even though this drug comes with extremely dangerous and potentially deadly risks.

The drug is so dangerous that the FDA has technically approved it only for specific patients, people getting angioplasty. Here's the catch: In the study the approval was based on, patients taking Effient faced "a greater risk of significant, sometimes fatal bleeding" when compared to… Continue

Why I Write

I had the lonely child's habit of making up stories and holding conversations with imaginary persons, and I think from the very start my literary ambitions were mixed up with the feeling of being isolated and undervalued. I knew that I had a facility with words and a power of facing unpleasant facts, and I felt that this created a sort of private world in which I could get my own back for my failure in everyday life.

My First Summer Job

Thirty-nine years ago today, June 13, 1970, I started my first summer job, at the Franklin Institute Research Laboratories in Philadelphia. I was 16 years old at the time.

And look at where I am today!

Is There Such A Thing as Holocaust Humor?

The Holocaust is a grim and sacred event in history. It is not the subject of humor. But I once heard a story tangentially related to the Holocaust that I found amusing.

A few years ago, the Metropolitan Opera in New York presented the modern opera "Moses and Aron," by Arnold Schoenberg, the great and innovative composer of the twentieth century. The music is atonal and its lack of traditional melody and harmony taxes a listener's patience.

During the performance, an old… Continue

Why I Write . . .

I found a thread this morning that asked of those who engage in some form of artistic expression a simple question, and that is Why.

Interesting question. I was tempted to be flip, sarcastic, but I guess that is simply an expression of some tension, some frustration within me, the expression of which, within this context, may be counter productive.

It certainly won't win me any friends or influence people in a manner that is all that useful to my ambitions . .… Continue

Manifesto: American Mad

Manifesto: American Mad

Are you Master of your own Domain?

Strange question, isn’t it. “What is up with that?” you may be tempted to ask, and most rightly so. There is, I think, only one correct answer, out of the thousands and thousands of possible responses, and that is: Are you insane? To understand why this is the most appropriate response, you must understand what is really being asked, and that requires a complete understanding of the original… Continue

Touring Tom Jones Still a Draw

Singer and 1970's, bulging crotched, heartthrob, Tom Jones recently appeared near my home at an outdoor theater. When I first saw the signs posted promoting the event about one month earlier I did a double take. Tom Jones? He's still out there? I hope he isn't thrusting his pelvis in and out like he used to or he'll get hip dysplasia.

I know you are waiting for me to say I attended the concert but I didn't and I'm sorry to disappoint you. Not having first-hand knowledge no longer… Continue

Touch Deprivation

Yes, let's talk about it.

I'm a nurse and a bodyworker/energyworker, as well as being one of those people for whom physical affection is not just pleasant or fun but a downright necessity. I'm a hugger. I'm a toucher.

I think, though, that in modern society, we just don't get enough casual contact to keep us from getting depressed. We think it is loneliness, we think it is horniness, we think it is a lot of things, but what a lot of it is, simply, is lack of physical…

Whatever Happened to David Freund?

I sometimes wonder: Whatever happened to David Freund? David Freund attended my junior high school, Wagner Junior High School in Philadelphia. We were in the same classes in the seventh grade (homeroom teacher, Miss Lillian Camaioni) and the eighth grade (Mrs. MacKay). He later attended Central High School, but transferred after the tenth grade. We were in the same homeroom classes in ninth and tenth grades; the homeroom teachers were Mrs. Barbara Sandler, a French teacher and Mr. Santo Diano,… Continue

Soul 2 Soul: Get A Life

How you doin'!

This is how we informally greet people where I am from in the union. It is always how I begin my entry onto every social media site that I am a member of.

It is good to see that folks are settling in here on NIng. I have memberships on other Ning sites. Once you become familiar with the different possibilities, I think you will enjoy being here.

For those of you who don't know who I… Continue

What is Beauty? There are so many young girls that are so confused by magazines as to what beauty is or is not.

Beauty starts with a kind heart. It is a giggle shared between friends*it is a secret kept about a suprise party* it is a secret broken when abuse is happening* it is a sparkle in your eyes when the person you love walks into the room* it is opening a door or letting someone get in front of you in the store.Beauty is knowing that it is triangles squares and circles and every… Continue

Arranging the deck chairs...

Can someone tell me, please, why people over on the original TBD site are STILL adding friends there and changing their profile pictures and information?

I feel like I should be standing on the deck, playing "Nearer my God to thee"

Life is so full of changes! Some of us balk at them and others look at them as and adventure!

The new group: What's on you bucket list?

Regardless to whom you are, what you are, where you are or how old you are at this point in time of your life, everyone has a dream, aspiration, fantasy, objective or goal in this life. What is it that you would like to accomplish during your limited time on this earth? It may sound dumb, stupid or crazy but everyone has something that they dream about being successful at. What's amazing is that you're probably not the only person with your quest. Someone else would probably like to do what… Continue

Up on the Roof

I gave the chimney on my house a haircut today. It had become overrun with thick, ivy vines, that stuck up in the air about two feet, spreading out in different directions. Reminded me of Don King's hair. I'd been ignoring it because I feel Don King is wealthy enough to get his own haircuts. Vines are stubborn too. They sprout hundreds of tentacles that embed themselves in the concrete in between the bricks and hold on for dear life. After two and one-half hours of hacking, chopping, and… Continue

What Are We Going To Do About Stanley Schmulewitz?

There's this old guy who lives in my apartment building. He's lived in the building for about 35 years. He's in his late seventies.

This is what gets me about the guy. He works out every day in the building's fitness center. In his street clothes. He uses the reclining stationary bicycle. I know this isn't the Christian thing to say, but neither I nor Stanley Schmulewitz is Christian. The guy is a total pain in the ass. He listens to the radio while he works out. He laughs, talks to… Continue
