BEATING CANCER

positive thinking sign shows optimism or belief MJt83NDu 1

According to an article in Best Life, scientific evidence indicates that one tiny change could help people improve cancer outcomes. Even though we know that how one feels mentally can have a strong impact on how one feels physically, when it comes to a disease as serious as cancer, we tend to think of it as something that only medicine could possibly treat. However, a new paper published in the journal Trends in Cancer reports that empowering patients to change their mindset about their diagnosis could help them get better care.

Blog76A

Recently, Swedish teen and climate activist Greta Thunberg crossed the Atlantic Ocean on a zero-emissions sailboat to attend the 2019 UN Climate Summit being held in New York City. According to the New York Associated Press, as the social-media-savvy teenager approached New York Harbor, she tweeted, "Land!" Greta refused to fly because of the carbon cost of plane travel. A 2018 study indicated that because of cloud and ozone formation, air travel may trap two to four times more heat than caused by emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases. In contrast, the onboard electronics of the sailboat Greta traveled on were powered by solar panels and underwater turbines. Inscribed on the boat’s sail are the words: UNITE BEHIND THE SCIENCE.

DM 03242016 1113

Roy was later shot down while attacking a target on the Ho Chi Minh trail in Laos, on May 19, 1967. He was leading a flight of two aircraft, and no parachute was observed prior to the crash, or as it crashed and burst into flames. Even though search and rescue efforts were initiated and organized, an actual search could not be conducted due to the intensity of hostile ground fire in the area.
