New PTSD treatment championed by war vet
- 7/18/2014 3:27 AM
I am a combat veteran and former Army officer who was medically retired because of TBI caused by an Al Wanda suicide bomber and PTSD. I was rated as 'totally and permanently disabled."I was treated with HBOT at a different clinic but with the same protocol. I experienced substantial improvement as well. To my knowledge at leadt 300 and perhaps as many 600 wounded warriors with TBI and/or PTSD have been treated at more than two dozen clinics across the country with the magnitude and rate of success far exceeding any treatment currently available through DOD or the VA. Almost all of these funded through pro-bono care or donation. In Denver alone veteran - supporting non - profits, corporations, and concerned individuals have funded HBOT for 140 wounded warriors. The generosity of doctors like Dr Prince reflects the best of American Society's loyalty, compassion and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the men, women and families that make up our Armed Forces. I cannot adequately express my own gratitude to those people who made possible the return of a husband and father of four children to a family years of little hope that the man they lo ed would ever fully return from war. I am ashamed that the Army that I loved so quickly abandoned me and the soldiers I served with (90 percent of whom were wounded in combat, mostly by IEDs) to such a sadistic and uncaring institution as the Department of Veterans Affairs. I am grateful for those, mostly outside of government, who are working so hard to fill the gap. Thank you. Major (Retd.) Ben Richards
Ron Howard to produce 'Clan Of The Cave Bear' mini-series
- 7/15/2014 3:33 PM
You can't do a mini series on six books. In order to do this series right it has to be a 4 part movie at least.... or a television series. It will be a disaster as a mini series.. rushed just like the first movie. Only the readers will understand what I am saying. It's one of the best book series ever written. With today's film quality it could be spectacular. A mini series is just going to screw up this once in a lifetime opportunity to film these books. and you just cannot end the mini-series with one book.. Ayla's whole story needs to be told.

Jimmer Fredette hosts annual basketball camp
- 7/2/2014 8:32 PM
Teaching anti-bullying and respectfulness from an NBA player is awesome. And it also explains why Mr. Fredette has not gotten a fair shake at playing time as a pro. Most players in the NBA are bullies, won't pass the ball to a player who is somewhat different from them, especially because of Jimmer's outlook on life. Hope you join a team that will really let you use your talents.

Medical marijuana bill still needs vote
- 6/20/2014 12:43 AM
Don't let Governer Cumo fool us. "Low-THC strain only" seem to be a new trend in prohibitionist propaganda rhetoric. First off, where did Medical Marijuana prohibitionists get their facts from? Links please? Show us somewhere that says the low-thc strain only is good for all ailments that Medical Marijuana is used to treat. We'll wait for documented proof/links please, because what prohibitionists are saying is a complete fallacy. The Medical Marijuana strain low-thc and high in CBD has only recently been discovered and is effective primarily in children with multiple daily seizures. The low-thc strain is not meant to treat all the other conditions strains with higher levels of thc treat. Medical Marijuana has been around for over 20 years and has been recognized by by over 20 states as medicine, BEFORE the low thc strain was even discovered. Care to explain that and what follows below away prohibitionists? With proof/links to where they are getting their info that states the low-thc strain is the cure all for every ailment that higher thc strains are used to teat. We're waiting for that proof and rebuttal. Furthermore naysayers, please read the excerpt below carefully then respond with your links, proof and rebuttal. Read carefully: Charlotte’s story and the concern for other young patients have led some lawmakers to consider passing legislation that only allows patients to access marijuana oils that are high in CBD and that have little or no THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). While it is heartening to see lawmakers’ concern for the plight of patients with catastrophic seizure disorders, these proposals unfortunately exclude the vast majority of those who can benefit from medical marijuana, some of whom also face life-threatening ailments. Relative Rarity While CBD appears to be particularly effective at treating seizures, the number of individuals treating seizure disorders through medical marijuana programs is relatively low.
Proposed casino divides East Greenbush residents
- 6/13/2014 10:20 PM
James Featherstonehaugh who is known as the Gatekeeper of New York State politics (because you must pay him to get anything done) and Cuomos friend is behind this bullying of a small suburban community that doesn't want his casino.The vast majority are opposed and the town board members and town officials who will personally gain by following "Feathers" advise to refuse to hold a vote allowing residents to weigh in on the matter have approved the casino without a public vote. . In fact, the board members have acknowledged that they will not be reelected after this vote. But since a number of them are involved in construction, they will personally gain so the vote will serve their personal interests. This is the story of a suburban community being overwhelmed by Casino big money influence.. Teachers, state workers, veterans don't have a chance against lobbyist Featherstonhaugh
