Can You Become Immune to Cancer?

Immune to Cancer - Scientists discovered that some mice just don't get cancer--they seem somehow immune. So they took the white blood cells of those cancer resistant mice, and inject them into previously non-resistant mice. Within a few days or weeks of being injected, those normal mice become resistant or immune to cancer.

Will this approach work in humans?

4-Hour Workweek - Quotes

My favorite quotes from 4-Hour Workweek by Timothy Ferriss. Unless otherwise attributed, all quotes direct from the author.

Identify the few critical tasks that contribute most to income and schedule them with very short and clear deadlines.

Most inputs are useless and time is wasted in proportion to the amount of time that is available.

A task will swell in (perceived) importance and complexity in relation to the time allotted for its completion. ~ Parkinson's Law

Perfection is not when there is no more to add, but no more to take away ~ Antoine de Saint-Exupery

Being overwhelmed is often as unproductive as doing nothing...

Lack of time is actually lack of priorities.

American Airlines Passenger "Jim Wilson" - Code for Coffin Jockey

American Airlines Codename Jim Wilson - If you go up to an American Airlines check-in counter under the name Jim Wilson, the agent will give you a double-take. That's because...

Perhaps Jim Wilson was the first customer?

Fooled by Randomness - by Nassim Nicholas Taleb

Fooled by Randomness by Nassim Taleb - Nassim Nicholas Taleb has written a mind-blowing book! Totally contrarian and terrifically clear in explaining the fallacies followed by journalist, investors, traders and, sadly, many scientists.

Example: Failing to notice the difference between probability and expectation, famous commodity trader/investor Jim Rogers made this astounding statement.

"I don't buy options....90 percent of all long options lost money." ~ Jim Rogers

Rogers confused probability with expectation.

Michael Berg Responds to Zarqawi's Death


Michael Berg

Michael Berg is the father of Nicholas (Nick) Berg, the young businessman who in May of 2004 was captured by terrorists in Iraq and beheaded. The terrorists videotaped the beheading and distributed the tape via their website. News services reported on the contents of the tape, showing the preamble of statements by Berg (and the terrorists?), but stopping short of broadcasting the actual beheading. However, besides the video, a still image of a terrorist holding up Bergs decapitated head has circulated widely on the Net.

RealAge Makeover by Michael F. Roizen


Michael F. Roizen, M.D.

RealAge Makeover and Michael Roizen - I read YOU: The Owner's Manual about a year ago, and was so impress with its clear, accessible explanations about how the human body works. Just saw the PBS "info-mercial" on Michael Roizen, M.D.'s new program/book The RealAge Makeover: Take Years off Your Looks and Add Them to Your Life. Very impressive. Not partnered with Mehmet Oz this time, Michael Roizen again presents simple, clear advice on what you can do to stay healthier and younger.

As Roizen said, no one can do them all, but even doing an important few (like walking 30 minutes a day and avoiding saturated and trans fats) will help keep you significantly healthier and younger.

How to Avoid Jet Lag - A New Rule-of-Tum

Avoid jet lag - According to a Harvard animal study, the sleep-wake cycle can be reset by fasting for 12-16 hours. So to avoid jet lag, the researchers offered this rule-of-tum...

  1. Figure out when breakfast is served in the new timezone
  2. Don't eat for 12-16 hours before that time

Avoid eating for 12-16 hours - The Harvard study suggests that delayed eating helps reset the sleep-wake cycle, which could help reduce jet lag or adjusting to working a swing shift.

Is Cheap Gas Bad for Your Car

Cheap Gas and Your Car - It's a question I always ask myself when gas prices go up:

Is cheap gas bad for my car?

As I fill up the tank at Peter's Petrol, I promise my car I'll make up for this abuse and feed it better gas next time. But is there anything wrong with cheap gas?

Here's what I found.

Letter from Camp - Camp Typhoid

One of the funniest things I've ever received by email. Truly wish I knew who wrote it.

Dear Mom & Dad,

We are having a great time here at Lake Typhoid. Scoutmaster Webb is making us all write to our parents in case you saw the flood on TV and worried. We are OK. Only 1 of our tents and 2 sleeping bags got washed away. Luckily, none of us got drowned because we were all up on the mountain looking for Chad when it happened. Oh yes, please call Chad's mother and tell her he is OK. He can't write because of the cast. I got to ride in one of the search & rescue jeeps. It was neat. We never would have found him in the dark if it hadn't been for the lightning. Scoutmaster Webb got mad at Chad for going on a hike alone without telling anyone. Chad said he did tell him, but it was during the fire so he probably didn't hear him...

Dean Ornish Warns - Omega-3 Fats Could Kill You!


Dean Ornish

Dean Ornish Says Omega-3 Fats Could Kill You!! - Yes, you read that right. Recent studies by Dr. Alexander Leaf of Harvard Medical School and others confirm many benefits to Omega-3 fatty acids for most people. However, for a sub-population who have had a heart attack or have congestive heart failure, consuming Omega-3 fats could kill them.

Why?

When heart muscle cells are starved for oxygen (as during heart attack or congestive heart failure), those heart cells become "hyper-excitable." Hyper-excitable cells activate or contract with less stimulus than healthy cells. This increased sensitivity is probably what keeps the weakened cells constricting at all. However, omega-3 fatty acids are "effectively removing these hyper-excitable cells from functioning." And if a significant proportion of the cells pumping your heart are hyper-excitable cells, omega-3 fatty acids could seriously reduce your heart's ability to pump, and in some cases that can cause a lethal heart attack.

Joaquin Phoenix Interview on Shootout - Peter Guber and Peter Bart

Heard a fascinating interview with Joaquin Phoenix on AMC's Sunday Morning Shootout with Peter Guber and Peter Bart. Phoenix was there with director James Mangold promoting their movie Walk the Line. I heard somewhere that Phoenix had been odd and uncooperative in his interviews. However, in this one he was great, giving sensible, insightful answers.

Here are some highlights.

NOTE: Just heard that Phoenix has decided to quit his acting career...to pursue his music career?

New Alphabet for Boomers

Rec'd from email chain

The New Alphabet for Boomers - A is for Apple, and B is for Boat, That used to be right, but now it won't float! Age before Beauty is what we once said, but let's be a bit more realistic instead.

Now A's for arthritis; B's the bad back,
C is the chest pains, perhaps cardiac?
D is for dental decay and decline,
E is for eyesight, can't read that top line!
