Roughly one million people – including leaders from around the world – today marched as part of “a cry for freedom” to honor those killed in this week’s terror attacks in Paris.

The march began Sunday afternoon at the Place de la Republique, near the Charlie Hebdo offices where 12 people were killed Wednesday.

People huddled in the windy streets – some appearing solemn, some upbeat – marching with French flags and “Je suis Charlie” signs. Portions of the crowd spontaneously burst into applause as they marched.

today’s holiday: First Monday Trade Days (2015)


First Monday Trade Days (2015)

The First Monday Trade Days are a trading bazaar that each month brings 100,000-300,000 people to the small town of Canton, Texas. This legendary affair in northern Texas has its origins in the 1850s when the circuit court judge came to Canton on the first Monday of the month to conduct court proceedings. Farmers from the area would gather to sell or trade horses, conduct other business in town, and watch the occasional hanging. Now the flea market starts on Thursday and runs through the weekend before the first Monday, offering merchandise and food at more than 3,000 exhibition stalls. More… Discuss

then: Job hunting in 1930s — Historical Pics …and NOW ( a hungry story!)


Published on Jul 8, 2012

Inspired from a book with the same title written by Dr Spencer Johnson. Its about 2 mice and two little people whose live in a maze. This story is actually reflecting ourselves and our behaviour when it comes to change. Like everything else CHANGE is inevitable. Many people resist change and live their lives in fear of change. Some will change according to time while mmost won’t. Some will take it as an opportunity while others will look at it as a threat. Which one is you?

The sinister reality -Then and Now – People still are hunting for a job!

Japanese Cherry Blossoms: YouTube video 1,275,662 in 6 years


Japanese Cherry Blossoms

Ornamental cherry trees and their blossoms are a major symbol of Japan, where they are called sakura and are considered a metaphor for the ephemeral nature of life. As such, they are frequently depicted in art and are associated with both the samurai and kamikaze. In 1912, Japan gave 3,000 sakura as a gift to the US to celebrate the two nations’ growing friendship. These trees have since lined the shore of the Tidal Basin in Washington, DC. What is the practice of hanami? More… Discuss

First, a word about what we have and who we are from the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, www.lls.org and the National Cancer Institute’s Cancer Statistics Review:

Leukemia, lymphoma, myeloma and myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) are types of cancer that can affect the bone marrow, the blood cells, the lymph nodes and other parts of the lymphatic system. Each is likely a result of changes to the DNA of a single stem cell.

By the numbers:

* Leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma are expected to account for 9.4 percent of the estimated 1.6-plus million new cancer cases diagnosed in the U.S. this year;

An estimated 1.3 million in the U.S. are living with, or are in remission from, leukemia, Hodgkin lymphoma, non-Hodgkin lymphoma or myeloma.

The immune system is at the center of one area of change.

A major reason blood cancers develop is a failure of the immune system to recognize malignant cells, Brinker said.

He talked about a study of Chimeric Antigen Receptor technology (CAR), at the University of Pennsylvania:

“B-cells are the bad cells in B-lymphocyte leukemias and lymphomas, which are the majority of non-Hodgkin lymphomas and lymphocytic leukemias.

“T-cells are like the military police, they regulate the B-cells.” In some lymphomas and leukemia, malfunctioning T-cells are the evildoers.

“We can put a virus into T-cells in a Petri dish and get them supercharged to specifically fight B-lymphocytes.

“The T-cells are then stimulated to reproduce,” and an army of killer T-cells is re-introduced into the body to destroy the cancer and stick around to take out new threats.

this day in the yesteryear: Verrazano-Narrows Bridge Opens (1964)


Verrazano-Narrows Bridge Opens (1964)

The Verrazano-Narrows Bridge connects the boroughs of Staten Island and Brooklyn in New York City. From the time of its completion until 1981, it was the largest suspension bridge in the world, with a span of 4,260 feet (1,298 m). Designed by engineer Othmar Ammann, a noted authority on bridges, it furnished a critical link in the regional highway system and is widely known today as the starting point for the New York City Marathon. Who was Giovanni da Verrazano, the bridge’s namesake? More… Discuss
