An important development for anyone who has had a loved one with Alzheimer’s. Or is worried about getting this horrible disease.
It’s in early stages still ….but would you get the blood test? Would you want to know?
A new television series called I F-ing Love Science will air on the Science Channel and will be hosted by Craig Ferguson, the late-night star announced at SXSW in Austin, Tex.
I’m a fan of Craig Ferguson and a fan of science so I can’t wait to see the show.
Nerdy Mind episode recapping some of the Top Science Stories of 2013
The ribbon eel has a unique appearance: trumpetlike nostrils and a lower jaw with three tentacles. But even more amazing than this eel’s physiology is its signature behavior—a propensity for sex change. Functioning males regularly become females and change colors as well, adopting a nearly yellow hue that apparently suits their more feminine side.
As the year comes to an end and we look to the beginning of another, many people reflect on the things for which they are grateful.
I am grateful for all my loyal fans whose words of encouragement and messages of appreciation keep me posting to this page (almost) every day.
Recently scientists have begun to research gratitude and the circumstances in which it flourishes or diminishes. They’re finding that people who practice gratitude consistently report a host of benefits:
- Stronger immune systems and lower blood pressure;
- Higher levels of positive emotions;
- More joy, optimism, and happiness;
- Acting with more generosity and compassion;
- Feeling less lonely and isolated.
In fact, the Universities of California, Berkeley and Davis are in the midst of a three-year project, Expanding the Science and Practice of Gratitude
What are YOU grateful for??

Watching how one hundred years of dog breeding “improvement” actually ruined perfectly beautiful, athletic, and useful dogs, turning them into a c …
First off, they left off the Chinese Sharpei, which didn’t have all those wrinkles back in the day and now have a deadly genetic disease referred to as “Sharpei fever” because of it.
I have an English Bulldog (Clarabelle) and it’s true, breeders have ruined dogs just to make a profit off of them. They have also ruined cats (the extreme concave faced Persians didn’t exist even 20 yrs ago) I also have two of them, retired show cats that I got thru Helping Persians Rescue here in LA. They too, have a host of health problems. And did you know that the Scottish Fold, with it’s cute little “folded ears” has those ears due to a genetic defect that causes them all to die a slow and painful death. Profits before ethics strikes again.
