Here's What to Do When Someone Insults You as You Cry about Difficult News

B'SD 28 Tevet, 5778 I'm feeling wistful for the Jewish month about to end. I spent much of it recovering from the astonishing pain of shingles and the weakness it had caused, missing out on some people plus activities I'd longed to join. But it was important not to over-exert myself and to prevent the shingles from reappearing! Longing for the usual aerobic, distance walking plus other strenuous physical activities that I usually pursue, I kept reminding myself that "recovering" is ...

Glioblastoma’s spectre in the Senate

With his right arm extended – pausing for just a moment – Senator John McCain flashed a thumbs-down and jarred the Senate floor. Audible gasps and commotion followed. At 1:29 am on 28 July, Senator McCain had just supplied the decisive “Nay” vote to derail the fourth and final bill voted on that night. With that, a seven-year pursuit to undo the Affordable Care Act had collapsed. The weight of that moment was magnified by the circumstances under which Senator McCain had arrived in D.C. days earl...

Why YOU Need to Motivate Yourself!

B'SD 2 Kislev, 5778 I've dried many tears in order to  share this message with you. Two hours ago, I returned home from a sophisticated vision exam in the hospital where I'd had life-saving surgery in 2005, to remove the benign Petroclival Tentorial Meningioma that had crushed my optic nerves plus part of my brain, and had almost killed me. Though surgery removed the tumor, I was left completely blind. I was so weak that I'd needed a wheelchair to get around.  I grad...

Empowering Yourself to Respond to Rude People

B'SD 3 Av, 5777 ​ From time to time, I am asked questions along the lines of  "Has anyone ever said something rude or unsympathetic to you about having a brain tumor? Like you deserve it or make sarcastic, even insulting comments about your intelligence or personality due to having the brain tumor? Or even told you that you have no right to cry or be scared because GOD only gives us what we can handle?" My answer? "Yes, and I responded with what became the title of a bo...

Why there can be no increase in all brain cancers tied with cell phone use

Several widely circulated opinion pieces assert that because there is no detectable increase in all types of brain cancers in Australia in the past three decades, cell phones do not have any impact on the disease. There are three basic reasons why this conclusion is wrong. First of all, the type of brain cancer increased by cell phones is glioblastomas. Glioblastomas are in fact increasing, as exemplified in those age 35-39 in the United States, in precisely those parts of the brain that absorb ...

Care to Share Your Thoughts about Movie-making?
