    Someone from the Midwest Institute for Minimally Invasive Therapies commented on a recent post and sent me a link to the Chicago Fibroid Clinic. I'm passing it on for anyone who is suffering with fibroids and considering a hysterectomy. What I forget is that the uterus and ovaries do a hell of a lot more than try to make babies. They produce important hormones and are part of the pelvic floor musculature. Removing the uterus and ovaries not only drastically changes your body chemistry, it can contribute to problems like incontinence. So I've backed down from my previous disgust with my…

    A MOVEMENT CAUGHT MY EYE as I approached the (open) bar. A woman was waving to me, smiling. I knew her…but I could not remember how. She was happy to see me, though; genuinely so. She had the sort of  look I once found irresistible as a young man. Blonde, white, and very cute. Not that there’s anything wrong with that! But I have changed over time, spurred by the suspicion that I had simply been subscribing to a national cultural propaganda; the face shown on so many posters and movie covers. Of course, humans are more than our race or phenotype, and my current…

In this condition, the body temperature will soar to around 38-40 degrees Celsius in just a few minutes. Experts suggest that in order to get maximum results, sauna temperature should be no more than 15-20 minutes. Sauna that there may be safe for the body, but there is little evidence that shows…

And is it any wonder he did, residents argue. The same contractor carving through their land has held the title to the…

In all three cases, Peña Nieto has shrunk – and refused to face the music. It’s a very peculiar style of governing. Instead of handling a crisis, he…

    Here's yet another glaring example of how certain adults can be nasty gaping assholes when it comes to religion. February of 2015, A.B. was a second-grade student at Forest Park Elementary School. On or about the 23rd, A.B. and his classmates were on the playground during the school day immediately before lunch when A.B. was asked by one of his classmates if he attended church.A.B. responded by stating that he did not go to church and did not believe in God. He also stated that it was fine with him if his inquiring classmate believed in God.The classmate said that A.B. had hurt her feelings…

    This is college professor Minati Roychoudhuri. She lost most if not all of her credibility by playing the race card to get out of having to pay a driving citation.She was driving on a highway last May when she was pulled over in the town of Wethersfield, CT. She was cited for failure to drive in the established lane. A month later, Roychoudhuri sent a letter to the Commissioner of Public Safety claiming that the officer had racially profiled her.In her letter she stated:“The policeman asked me if I could speak English and if I knew why he had stopped me. I said, “yes” to speaking…

  • Review: Personalized Cookie Cuttters

    6 Jul 2015 | 3:30 am
    I love to bake. Cupcakes, cakes, and some breads are my thing. And come Christmas time it is all about the cookies! Especially cut out cookies that I make using a recipe my mom treasure from a cookbook that she got when she was a little girl. The making of the dough, the rolling out, cutting and then decorating is like a meditation on love. Yes this feminist loves to bake!That is why I jumped at the chance to test out a personalized cookie cutter from Cookie Cutter Kingdom. I scrolled through all their options and decided on the doxie. Now this is where I found a shortcoming...You are limited…
  • POV returns on June 22nd with "Out in the Night"

    22 Jun 2015 | 3:30 am
    In 2006, under the neon lights of a gay-friendly neighborhood in New York City, a group of African-American lesbians were violently threatened by a man on the street. The women fought back and were later charged with gang assault and attempted murder. The tabloids quickly dubbed them a gang of "Killer Lesbians" and a "Wolf Pack." Three pleaded guilty to avoid a trial, but the remaining four — Renata, Patreese, Venice and Terrain — maintained their innocence. The award-winning Out in the Night examines the sensational case and the women's uphill battle, revealing the role that race, gender…

    I've been coloring various pages from Coloring Flower Mandalas: 30 Hand-drawn Designs for Mindful Relaxation by Wendy Piersall for a solid month now. And I gotta say, I don't think I've ever been so popular! Everyone wants to chime in on the grown-up coloring book trend. "Oh, I read about that!" "WOW! That's a great pattern." "What do you use?"To answer that last question, I've bought myself a fresh pack of color pencils. And I carry them practically everywhere I go. And here's what I've discovered...Instead of peeking at my phone while my mind thinks it needs something to do, I pull out my…

    Message Not Received Photos: book cover Wiley/Luke Fletcher, author Sean Sunkel We often blame misunderstanding across cultures and languages on communication. Even among speakers of the same language sometimes there are formidable barriers. Cultural differences, abbreviated messages in limited length media such as emails and social media can lead to truncated or unclear messages. Such communications issues and at times failures represent business costs. The McKinsey Global Institute report estimate for the cost of bad communication is nearly $1 trillion (referenced in Chapter 4 of Message…
