Sustain Me: Notes on Cancer: Faith Infused Notes on Stage IV Colon Cancer

by Sharon O'Connor

Have you ever woken up with cancer? One year in my life, a well care visit set in motion a series of tests and surgery that found a cancerous mass. I woke up with a colostomy and a cancer diagnosis. There were multiple surgeries, aggressive chemo and radiation treatment, an ileostomy and reversal, and a new normal. How would you move forward when treatment options seem more fearsome than the disease? When cancer returns as stage four disease and youre told you have 6-12 months to live without further treatment? Do you accept more medical treatment, or use nutrition to combat the return of cancer? Or both? How do you find a balance between medicine and nutrition and effective cancer healing options that are best for you?A PET scan in August 2013 revealed that there is no cancer detected a...

Inferno: An Inquiry Into the Willingham Fire

by J. Bennett Allen

Cameron Todd Willingham refused to walk to his execution. To his last moment he proclaimed his innocence of the arson that claimed the lives of his children. While much has been written of the trial, conviction and execution of Willingham, Inferno is the first exploration of the possible causes of the fire that cost three children, and eventually, Willingham himself, their lives. Instead of him saving her, Amber would save her daddy. She would save him by awakening him with her screams and pleas, by telling him of the fire, by taking his place in bed, by breathing in the smoke that would have filled his lungs instead of hers.The fire, however, would not be denied. Disguised first as justice and then as a needle, it would consume her father just as surely as it had Amber and her infant sist...

Bulger On Trial: Boston's Most Notorious Gangster And The Pursuit Of Justice

by David Boeri, Lisa Tobin and Bridget Samburg

The trial of James Whitey Bulger this summer was supposed to bring an end to one of the greatest scandals in the history of the FBI, but it dredged up a toxic swamp instead. Horrific crimes, depraved witnesses and sordid accounts of FBI agents who gave their allegiance to the mob boss emerged from the muck as families of 19 murder victims endured the presentation of broken skulls and jaws along with photos from the morgue. At center stage was the defendant, who had been listed and protected by the FBI as a secret informant. He claimed the government had given him a free pass, but prosecutors fought to keep the trial away from questions of who made Bulger what he became and how. In an extraordinary measure of their outrage, the families of the victims cheered Bulgers own attorneys as the...

Sluts

by Christine Stockton

Few words cut to the core of modern women like slut. Our attitudes are shifting towards acceptance: of sex outside of marriage, sex between whomever happen to love each other (regardless of gender), and sex positivity-- experimenting with positions and toys. But were still sluts. Women are still defined by their sexuality. These are essays of women starting in the middle and moving forward based on hindsight and instinct. Were trying to become empowered women without knowing what an empowered woman looks like. For all we know, it could look a lot like being a slut.

When Speaking of Elijah Muhammad

by Nasir Hakim

There are at least three ways most people are viewed. 1. How we see ourselves; 2. How others see us; and 3. How we actually are. Bringing the 3 together produces a coherence that is rarely attained by most, but in Messenger Elijah Muhammad's case, we humbly ask that your judgment be reserved, because the jury is still out as to the profundity, significance and effect of his impact on the world.When speaking of Elijah Muhammad, the Last Messenger of Allah, very few are without a personal view or bias. Whether it is influenced by former students such as Minister Malik El Shabazz, also known as Minister Malcolm X, Cassius Clay, formerly known as Muhammad Ali, Louis Wilcox also known as Minister Louis Farrakhan or any host of other notables inside as well as out of the Nation of Islam, it's ra...

Pioneer Work in Opening the Medical Profession to Women

by Elizabeth Blackwell

"Dr. Elizabeth Blackwell was the first woman ever educated in an American medical school. This is a story of success by perseverance and personal sacrifice. She has no funding: she goes on. She has no mentors: she goes alone. She has no money for a cab: she walks. She wears out her shoes and avoids places where she can't look shabby. She loses an eye, and gives up her dream of being a surgeon, embracing general medicine instead. She endures insults, humiliation, and profound loneliness. But she believes she is making a future possible for American women doctors, so nothing, nothing stands in her way for long. And I thought medical school was hard! The old farts who harassed us women med students in the 1980's could only dream of tormenting us like 19th century gentlemen tormented her. I wo...

Steal This Hero: An Abbie Hoffman Love Song In Two Verses, One Chorus and a Coda

by Jack Preston King

A funny and deeply moving memoir of the author's finding Abbie Hoffman's "Steal This Book" while a pre-teen growing up in a Midwest small town at the end of the Nixon era, and of his disappointing "coming of age" as a full-fledged Abbie-loving cultural revolutionary "Yippie" during a '70s-'80s that had long ago traded "The Revolution" for the hedonistic, "Shut up and dance!" ethic of Disco-mania.[Begin Excerpt]"Mom," I boldly offered one evening, "Listen to what they're saying over there. They're right. America is the Great Satan. We've trashed the Third World for two hundred years. It's about time they trashed us back." Stunned silence. Burning cheeks. "Jesus, Mom," I continued. "Just look at the situation over there." I was rolling now, no time to think. I'd shocked my way onto center st...

The Story: Of the Greatest Person that Ever Lived

by Mars Malo

Kindergarten is in session and the name-less protagonist is assigned to begin a private journal as a class project. After the school year is over, out of habit, the journal entries continue until years later when the main character begins to seriously question why they had continued to write long after the assignment had ended. Was it ever a real decision or were they just mindlessly following what they were to do all these year? Why do we even have this need to follow and seek guidance from a higher authority anyway? Who better to answer these questions than the person living the life in question. It's time to stop believing things out of habit and for the sake of belief itself and time to start seeking the uncomfortable but honest answers about the reality of life. Throughout the next 5 ...

A Pain in the Toenails: Essay excerpt from The Most Unfeeling Doctor in the World (Unfeeling Doctor Series)

Ah, the innocence of medical school. This is a story from my third year of clinical clerkship, when I started rotating through the hospital wards, starting with internal medicine. I was matched to the gastrointestinal team, so I can recite the bacterial causes of bloody diarrhea to this day.

One patient taught me about ulcerative colitis...and a few other things.

Atiku - The Story Of Atiku Abubakar

by Adinoyi Ojo Onukaba

As Vice President Atiku Abubakars media adviser from June 2003 to April 2005, I had the tedious task of going through a steady flow of unsolicited proposals for a biography on him.

Some of these proposals, mostly from people who hardly knew him, were written by adoring fans or worshipful political supporters who genuinely wanted to market his inspiring life story and leadership qualities to the literate public. Others were motivated chiefly, I suspect, by pecuniary gains or the quest for momentary literary fame. The proposals also differed in terms of approach and the medium the would-be authors hoped to use to realize their objectives.Afilm maker in Northern Nigeria wanted to put Atikus life on video.ASouthwestern author of a proposal wanted to do a television documentary o...

All Roads Led to Shanghai

by Clio Calodoukas

In my book All Roads led to Shanghai I try to give my readers a glimpse of an environment so different from present times when, as a young girl during the 1930s and 1940s, I lived in the International Settlement of Shanghai. The scenes I witnessed were unique to this city; some scenes filled me with wonder and delight, but others with sadness and disquiet. I grew up in an era when the world was in turmoil as dynasties fell, revolutions erupted and two World Wars displaced millions of people from their homelands. Shanghai offered people a sanctuary. A thriving financial centre, governed by the British, the city was a community made up of many nationalities. Entry visas were not required and this allowed thousands of refugees to descend upon this city, amongst them Russians fleeing Bolshe...

No, they preferred to communicate by letter, telephone and even telegram on one occasion.This short memoir describes the highs and lows of my experience. Ah, I could have been a contender.

Abraham Lincoln Complete Biography and Quotes

Abraham Lincoln (February 12, 1809 – April 15, 1865) was the 16th President of the United States, serving from March 1861 until his assassination in April 1865. Lincoln led the United States through its Civil War--its bloodiest war and its greatest moral, constitutional and political crisis.[2][3] In so doing he preserved the Union, abolished slavery, strengthened the national government and modernized the economy. Reared in a poor family on the western frontier, Lincoln was self-educated, and became a country lawyer, a Whig Party leader, Illinois state legislator during the 1830s, and a one-term member of the United States House of Representatives during the 1840s.
