Brain Droppings

Brain Droppings

With hundreds of sold-out concert dates each year, over 20 albums, two Grammys, two Cable ACE awards, and more HBO specials that anyone else, George Carlin is more popular than ever. Now Carlin's "New York Times" bestselling book comes to paperback. Filled with thoughts, musings, questions, lists, beliefs, curiosities, monologues, assertions, assumptions, and other delicious verbal ordeals, "Brain Droppings" is drop-dead funny.

George Carlin's been working the crowd since "the counterculture" became "the over-the-counter culture" around 1967 or so; his new book, Brain Droppings, surfs on three decades of touring-in-support. It's the purest version of book-as-candy that one could imagine, serving up humor in convenient, bite-sized packages. Snack on chewy one-liners like "A meltdown sounds like fun. Like some kind of cheese sandwich." Or: "If you can't beat them, arrange to have them beaten." Brain Droppings also contains highlights from Carlin's concert repertoire, and that more than makes up for the occasional spray of pointless nihilism. Tell us, George, what exactly were you going for with "Kill your pet" and "Satan is cool"? Quick--hide the paper before Daddy sees it! Still, if you're a fan of this sarcastic semanticist who's given Bad Attitude not necessarily a good name, but at least a comfy bank account, by all means rush out and snag Brain Droppings. Carlin's book melts in your mind, not in your hand.

Gila Monster

Gila Monster

The Gila monster ( /?hi?l?/ hee-l?), Heloderma suspectum, is a species of venomous lizard native to the southwestern United States and northwestern Mexican state of Sonora. A heavy, slow-moving lizard, up to 60 centimetres (2.0 ft) long, the Gila monster is the only venomous lizard native to the United States and one of only two known species of venomous lizards in North America, the other being its close relative, the Mexican beaded lizard (H. horridum). Though the Gila monster is venomous, its sluggish nature means that it represents little threat to humans. However, it has earned a fearsome reputation and is sometimes killed despite being protected by state law in Arizona and Nevada.

The Gila monster is found in the Southwestern United States and Mexico, a range entailing Sonora, Arizona, parts of California, Nevada, Utah, and New Mexico (but not Baja California). They inhabit scrubland, succulent desert, and oak woodland, seeking shelter in burrows, thickets, and under rocks in locations with ready access to moisture. In fact, Gila monsters seem to like water and can be observed immersing themselves in puddles of water after a summer rain. They avoid living in open areas such as flats and farmland.

The Gila monster feeds primarily on bird and reptile eggs, and occasionally upon small birds, mammals, frogs, lizards, insects, and carrion. The Gila monster eats infrequently (only five to ten times a year in the wild), but when it does feed, it may eat up to one-third of its body mass. It uses its extremely acute sense of smell to locate prey, especially eggs. Its sense of smell is so keen that it can locate and dig up chicken eggs buried 15 centimetres (5.9 in) deep and accurately follow a trail made by rolling an egg.

Prey may be crushed to death if large or eaten alive if small, swallowed head-first and helped down by muscular contractions and neck flexing. Unusually, after food has been swallowed, the Gila monster immediately resumes tongue flicking and search behavior, probably as a result of a history of finding clumped prey such as eggs and babies in nests. Gila monsters are able to climb trees and cacti in search of eggs.

Venom is produced in modified salivary glands in the Gila monster's lower jaw, unlike snakes, whose venom is produced in the upper jaw. The Gila monster lacks the musculature to forcibly inject the venom; instead, the venom is propelled from the gland to the tooth by chewing. Capillary action brings the venom out of the tooth and into the victim. The teeth are loosely anchored, which allows them to be broken off and replaced throughout life. Gila monsters have been observed to flip over while biting the victim, presumably to aid the flow of the venom into the wound. Because the Gila monster's prey consists mainly of eggs, small animals, and otherwise "helpless" prey, it is thought that the Gila monster's venom evolved for defensive rather than for hunting use. A defensive use would explain the Gila monster's bright warning coloration.

Although the venom is a neurotoxin as toxic as that of a Coral Snake, H. suspectum produces only small amounts.[9] The Gila monster's bite is normally not fatal to adult humans. There are no confirmed reports of fatalities after 1939, and those prior to that year are suspect due to the primitive dangerous "treatments." The Gila monster can bite quickly (especially by swinging its head sideways) and hold on tenaciously and painfully. If bitten, the victim may need to fully submerge the attacking lizard in water to break free from its bite. Symptoms of the bite include excruciating pain, edema, and weakness associated with a rapid drop in blood pressure. More than a dozen peptides and proteins have been isolated from the Gila monster's venom, including hyaluronidase, serotonin, phospholipase A2, and several kallikrein-like glycoproteins responsible for the pain and edema caused by a bite. Four potentially lethal toxins have been isolated from the Gila monster's venom, including horridum venom, which causes hemorrhage in internal organs and exophthalmos (bulging of the eyes), and helothermine, which causes lethargy, partial paralysis of the limbs, and hypothermia in rats. However, the constituents most focused on are the bioactive peptides, including helodermin, helospectin, exendin-3, and exendin-4. Most are similar in form to vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP), which relaxes smooth muscle and regulates water and electrolyte secretion between the small and large intestines. These bioactive peptides are able to bind to VIP receptors in many different human tissues. One of these, helodermin, has been shown to inhibit the growth of lung cancer.

The Gila monster emerges from hibernation in the months of January or February and mates in May and June. The male initiates courtship by flicking his tongue to search for the female's scent. If the female rejects his advances, she will bite him and crawl away. When successful, copulation

my younger brother joe and his marathon runner Adam at the 2010 boston marathon

this was written by my mom:
"Joey is our 14 year old son, whom we love dearly. He was diagnosed with a medulloblastoma brain tumor on Monday, September 8th during an MRI. To say this diagnosis was a surprise is an understatement because he was treated all summer for anxiety rather successfully. It was not until he began having double vision were we sent into Children's Hospital. Even then his symptoms did not impress the doctors, he passed all the neurological testing they did on him but the MRI was scheduled just to be sure.

He went into surgery on Wednesday the 10th and did wonderful. After his 10 hour surgery he was responding to questions and talking up a storm. He had a setback on the 11th when his sodium levels dropped and he lost his ability to respond to the doctors and his right side showed significant weakness, almost like a paralysis. The levels have since been brought back up to normal and he is starting to take baby steps in his recovery.

Fast forward 3 weeks...Joey is well on his way to going home. He was transferred from Children's Hospital on 9/26 to Spaulding Rehab to work on regaining balance and strengthening his right side. He will be leaving Spaulding on 10/8 to go HOME! He begins radiation treatment on 10/9 and that will continue for 6 weeks. He will also have chemotherapy starting soon.

We were told that Joey's symptoms, diagnosis, and I would say recovery, have not been textbook. He has surpassed everyone's expectations in regard to his recovery. His oncologist told us if he had to teach about the type of tumor Joey had he would not use his case :)

We cannot say enough great things of everyone we came into contact with at Children's Hospital. The quality of care and compassion is amazing. Many thanks go out to Dr. Ed Smith, Joey's neurosurgeon. He was straight forward with the diagnosis but it was delivered in a way that you knew everything would be o.k. He is caring and compassionate, as well as a brilliant neurosurgeon.

It is now February. In November Joey finished 6 weeks of daily chemo and proton radiation. at Mass General. We decided to stay at MGH to recieve treatments, his doctor and primary nurse are fantastic. In December he began his intensive chemotherapy courses. He spends 3 nights and 4 days in the hospital every 28 days. He now has 2 down and only 4 more to go. He will be done with chemo in May!! He feels o.k. most of the time but about a week after chemo his blood counts drop and he feels yucky. He has also had a fever after both of the chemos he has gone through, which is not uncommon at all.

With all the prayers Joey is receiving he is going to beat this and anything else that may come his way and live a long, happy and productive life."

Dropping Out: Why Students Drop Out of High School and What Can Be Done About It

The vast majority of kids in the developed world finish high school—but not in the United States. More than a million kids drop out every year, around 7,000 a day, and the numbers are rising. Dropping Out offers a comprehensive overview by one of the country’s leading experts, and provides answers to fundamental questions: Who drops out, and why? What happens to them when they do? How can we prevent at-risk kids from short-circuiting their futures?
Students start disengaging long before they get to high school, and the consequences are severe—not just for individuals but for the larger society and economy. Dropouts never catch up with high school graduates on any measure. They are less likely to find work at all, and more likely to live in poverty, commit crimes, and suffer health problems. Even life expectancy for dropouts is shorter by seven years than for those who earn a diploma.
Rumberger advocates targeting the most vulnerable students as far back as the early elementary grades. And he levels sharp criticism at the conventional definition of success as readiness for college. He argues that high schools must offer all students what they need to succeed in the workplace and independent adult life. A more flexible and practical definition of achievement—one in which a high school education does not simply qualify you for more school—can make school make sense to young people. And maybe keep them there.
