2015-May-10 - resented to cancer patients

CdA woman urges 'mindful philanthropy' regarding breast cancer

It's that breast cancer has become what she and others call the "shopping disease," with countless products especially during Breast Cancer Awareness Month adorned with breast cancer pink ribbons, their sales sometimes doing little or nothing to benefit patients or research.

"It feels like blood money to me," Caro said, "when I have friends that are dying of this disease, and it's such a hideous thing to go through."

When the 34 year old Coeur d woman delivered a TEDxSpokane talk on "mindful philanthropy" last month at St. George's School, her task was to connect her personal story as a young woman who had invasive breast cancer to the "big idea" that's the hallmark of a TED talk.

The story started when Caro was 32, diagnosed with an aggressive tumor and three affected lymph nodes. A nurse who treated oncology patients, Caro had a 9 year old daughter and a 5 year old son.

Caro's cancer treatment lasted a year. She underwent a bilateral mastectomy, chemotherapy and radiation. She said there were times when she wasn't sure she'd survive the treatment. Too sick to work, she lost her job.

"I thought completing treatment would be my victory lap but it was all I could do to crawl through the mud across that finish line," she said in her talk.

The big idea: While "breast cancer awareness" sells, and marketers add pink ribbons to all manner of products, in many cases the products' sale benefits no one but the marketers. "In fact," Caro said, "products that provide a false or overinflated sense of contribution may be doing more harm than good."

That leaves it to consumers, she said, to read the fine print (when it exists) on pink ribbon products or events. How much, if any, of the money from a product's sale benefits breast cancer research or patients? If dollars are earmarked for a nonprofit organization, how does the organization spend its money?

"Part of TED is it should be a little bit provocative," said Michael Poutiatine, Caro's speech writing coach, who teaches leadership to graduate students at Gonzaga University.

It was the third TEDx event at St. George's, the second "TEDxSpokane" event officially licensed through TED, an international organization that aims to spread ideas in the form of short speeches.

Not everyone has to agree with the big idea, but if the audience ends up thinking about it, "that's the brilliant TED," Poutiatine said.

Caro got a standing ovation.

The cause, and the calling to speak up, found her.

His wife wasn't an advocate before she got cancer, said Chris Caro, 39, who manages Terra Sports, a bike shop in Coeur d "I don't know what light switch was flipped, but she sure is driven now," Chris Caro said.

Since her diagnosis, Heather Caro has become a Western states leader of the Young Survival Coalition for 19 to 40 year olds with breast cancer. She's launching a local support group through the coalition. The panel decides which research proposals should receive federal funding.

She has been documenting her experience since her diagnosis on her blog, My Life, Distilled, which attracts thousands of readers a month.

"I think Silver Satin and crepe Canonita 100mm Heather works this hard because Heather wants to survive and see her kids grow up and have a life," said her friend, Rebecca Schroeder. "And it's not over for her. It's not all wrapped up in pink. It's something that she lives with every day."

Schroeder lives across the street from the Caros. She cooked for Heather during her treatment. She bought her a juicer. She sat with her when Black Satin and crepe Canonita 100mm she was White Satin and crepe Canonita 100mm sick and checked on her when Chris was at work.

During her treatment, in October 2012, Caro and a photographer friend went into the woods to document "the middle" of cancer.

Their intention was to put some more realistic images into the world, augmenting the photos presented to cancer patients of happy looking, hat wearing models on brochures with titles like "Lymphoma and You."

They made

"That is what I remember the harsh reality," Schroeder said. "There was nothing pink and pretty about the process, and it's not over, even now. She still has so many side effects from the chemotherapy, and she has organ damage. She has so many things that she deals with now, now that she's a, quote, survivor."She Black Leather Cathay 100mm knows that for some, pink is powerful. If it provides a rallying cry or offers strength, "then it certainly has its place," she told the TEDxSpokane crowd.

2015-May-10 - The Canadiens were struggling

Canadiens Black Fishnet Canne A Peche 120mm coach Randy Cunneyworth on thin ice after GM Pierre Gauthier fired

BROSSARD, Qc Even if his future looks bleak, Randy Cunneyworth hopes to stay on as head coach of the Montreal Canadiens.

The fate of the 50 year old coach looked to be sealed Thursday when the man who hired him, general manager Pierre Gauthier, was fired by the Montreal Canadiens.

However, it was Molson who appeared to throw Cunneyworth to the dogs in mid season, after he was promoted to the head coaching job on an interim basis on Dec. 17 with the firing of Jacques Martin.

An outcry from Quebec nationalists over naming the team's first non French speaking Gold Leather Brandaplato 140mm coach in decades prompted Molson to promise that the team's next would be bilingual. Cunneyworth speaks only English, although he vowed to go on a crash course in French.

Cunneyworth and assistant coach Randy Ladouceur were named assistant coaches in Montreal after leading the AHL Hamilton Bulldogs to a conference final in 2010 11.

The Canadiens were struggling at 13 12 7 when Martin was fired. Under Cunneyworth, the injury plagued team has gone 16 22 7 and dropped to last place in the NHL Eastern Conference.

"The circumstances between winning Fishnet Canne A Peche 120mm and losing are difficult things," he said. "You look for different heroes on different Black Leather Brandaplato 140mm nights and we haven't had enough heroes on too many nights.

"The lesson learned is we need more of a complete team to do the job over a season."

He said the Canadiens should be able to rebound next season, however.

"There have been some bright spots," he said. "The adversity should make us stronger. A quick turnaround (to being a playoff team) is not out of the question. We've seen some teams do it this season."

2015-May-10 - Own Scottish Borderers

British troops shoot Londonderry rioters

Two men have been killed by the British army in Londonderry, Northern Ireland.

Some of the worst violence in the town for three years flared up this afternoon when a crowd of 200 gathered in Lecky Street at the news of an army shooting earlier in the day.

It appears his rescuers feared he would be arrested by police if he was Silver Glitter Boulimina 120mm taken to the local hospital.

This evening the Ministry of Defence has announced that an extra 500 men from the First King's Own Scottish Borderers are to be sent to Northern Ireland tomorrow.

This brings to 1,400 the total number of men drafted to Northern Ireland in the past 10 days in preparation for the traditional 12 July Black PVC Bow 100mm celebrations.

The British Government refused to hold a public inquiry into the deaths in Londonderry, despite a public outcry as republicans Red PVC Bow 100mm claimed the victims were unarmed.

The six members of the Social Democratic and Labour Party withdrew from the Northern Ireland Assembly at Stormont in protest at the Black Glitter Boulimina 120mm refusal to hold an official inquiry into the deaths of George Beattie and Seamus Cusack.

On 21 and 22 July 1971 Labour peer Lord Gifford chaired an unofficial inquiry in which the MoD refused to participate. It concluded that neither man was armed.

2015-May-10 - basket and we had opportunitie

BYU falls at home to Pepperdine

PROVO While almost everything went right for BYU against Santa Clara and San Francisco last weekend in the Bay Area, almost everything went wrong for the Cougars against Pepperdine Thursday night at the Marriott Center.

In a game BYU trailed from start to finish, the Waves knocked off the Cougars, 67 61, before a crowd of 15,852.

well as it went last weekend, it was difficult tonight," said coach Dave Rose. "The ball wasn going in the basket and Pepperdine had a great plan. They were staying on our shooters. We were having a hard time finishing with how physical they were.

BYU (13 5, 3 2) missed a bunch of layups and turned the ball over too much and struggled to get to the free throw line. And it didn't help that guard Kyle Collinsworth, coming off his third triple double in a month, played while battling the flu.

Pepperdine (10 5, 3 1) seemed to grab almost every loose ball and hit shots when it needed Suede Boulima 160mm to and slowed down the Cougars explosive offense.

Waves forward Stacy Davis finished with 23 points, including two clutch free throws with 40 seconds left.

thought we be able to sneak one out at the end, but they made a couple more plays than we did," Rose said. "Give Pepperdine all the credit in the world. Their guards are good. Stacy Davis was a handful inside.

It a big blow for a BYU team with NCAA tournament hopes that can afford any bad losses, especially at home. It equaled the Cougars lowest scoring game of the season. BYU also scored 61 in a home loss to Utah.

Tyler Haws scored a game high 26 for BYU while Anson Winder finished with 16. Haws, Winder and Chase Fischer (8) scored 50 of the Cougars' 61 points.

BYU shot 38 percent (24 of 63) from the field, and 23 percent (6 of 26) from 3 point range.

one of the best defensive 3 point guarding teams in the country and our percentage showed that tonight," Rose said of the Waves. "Even the clean looks we got, we couldn convert on those.

In the second half, Rose decided to shuffle his lineup, going with Corbin Kaufusi to Black Suede Boulima 160mm guard Davis one on one while opting to rest Collinsworth, who hit 1 of 8 shots from the field.

"Kyle gave us a good effort," Rose said.

Midway through the second half, after trailing by as many as 12, the Cougars chipped away at the deficit. BYU enjoyed a 10 2 run capped by a steal and layup by Haws to cut it to 54 51 with 5:18 remaining.

The Cougars trailed 60 59 with 1:02 remaining, but outside jumpers by Haws and Winder failed to go down.

the stretch we didn convert like Brown Suede Boulima 160mm we would have liked to," Winder said. "Stacy Davis, who a really good player, made White Suede Boulima 160mm crucial shots that kept them in it.

BYU didn attempt its first free throw until the 12:10 mark of the second half.

The Waves hit 10 of its first 14 shots, including 5 of 7 from 3 point territory, to take an early 25 13 lead with 13:08 left in the first half.

Midway through the half, Pepperdine had knocked down 12 of its first 16 shots, including six of its first eight 3 pointers, to go up 30 18.

Meanwhile, BYU settled for a lot of outside shots in the first half.

The Cougars lead the nation in made free throws per game (20.4), but they shot zero free throws in first half.

In fact, Pepperdine didn record its first foul personal foul until there were less than three minutes remaining in the first half.

were pretty adamant with our guys to drive that thing in there and get a foul called and get to the free throw line, Rose said. "They were staying on our shooters so we had a lane to the basket and we had opportunities. Our guys are pretty confident and always think the next one going in. Tonight, it didn happen.

BYU finished 7 of 8 from the free throw line.

The officials lost control of the game late in the first half as things got chippy between the players on both sides.

At intermission, the Waves had a 39 29 lead over BYU, marking the Cougars lowest scoring half of the season.

TIP INS: In an experimental, and controversial, move, ESPN did not have broadcasters calling the game at the Marriott Center. Instead, the ESPNU broadcast featured broadcasters describing the action from an ESPN studio. In the first half, Haws surpassed Michael Smith to move to No. 3 all time in scoring at BYU. Smith scored 2,319 career points as a Cougar.

2015-May-10 - The products which genuinely

Beating psoriasis

As Kim will discover, psoriasis is a monster of a problem you never overcome but just learn to manage. It's familial her mother Kris got it at the same age, and it's aggravated by louboutin replica stress, hormonal activity (it gets inflamed during the mid cycle oestrogen rise), certain food and drink (wine and champagne are complete no nos), and fragranced products.

Not an ideal problem for a beauty editor or someone who earns a living showing off their body for that matter. Kim's doctor recommended she slow down which, for someone at the pinnacle of their career, and looking like they are enjoying it, isn't very helpful.

First, eat right: a diet that excludes sugar, yeast, wheat, gluten, fruit, refined food, anything fermented (alcohol, vinegar) or containing mould (cheese), smoked fish and meat and caffeine (tea, coffee, canned drinks) gives results, but it's tough to keep up. So nutritionist Annie Boak suggests doing it as an intensive six week diet, then relaxing things, but still resisting sugar and wine, which tend to be the christian louboutin replica worst aggravators.

Second, treat well: lots of products claim to reduce psoriasis but few work and some make it worse. The products which genuinely help don't look as sexy as commercial offerings like 'natural' balms and anti dandruff shampoos, replica louboutin shoes but some are real workhorses. If you are a suffer you should have every one of the following in your bathroom cabinet:

Vichy Dercos Dermo Soothing Shampoo brilliant at easing scalp psoriasis.

Z A Argan Serum biopath Gudrun Jonsson's pure Moroccan argan oil has great softening effects on inflamed patches. 56, 020 7603 replica louboutin 1926.

Dovobet best kept for emergency flare ups and available on prescription only, this is much better than Betnovate because it contains reparative vitamin E.
