I lost my father and Brother to cancer, in addition, I lost my (2) cousins' to cancer ,they lost a father and now their Mother and her daughter (my cousin) now have cancer. My Aunt has terminal cancer!
I think it was in January that this site had a very long list of alternative cancer treatments and videos.
It was the most comprehensive list I have seen.
Can someone please help me find the Link?
I remember even Michael Nystrom made comments.
Another free market innovation you all may have missed.
Fire the guy, but keep the program.
What happened to "repeal and replace" Obamacare (Rmoneycare)?
Where's the stand Baker? We thought things would be different with RATpubliCONs?
“As with all incoming administrations, I am establishing a new leadership team and I have instructed those individuals to take a fresh look at the Connector and to implement ideas to improve the operation of that important state entity,” Baker said.
Boston Mayor Martin J. Walsh has a message for all the fools jumping out of windows into snow piles: Stop it.
“I’m asking people to stop their nonsense right now,” Walsh said at a press conference Tuesday, addressing the legions of people who have jumped out of windows — often dressed only in their underwear — and posted their conquests on social media using the hashtag #BostonBlizzardChallenge over the past three weeks.
Watch it here
BOSTON (AP) — She was 19, a brand-new mother with a developmental disability. Two days after giving birth to her daughter, the state took the infant away and placed her in foster care.
Massachusetts child welfare officials contend the young woman couldn't properly care for a newborn and insist they acted in the child's best interests. But the federal government disagrees: It says the state violated her civil rights by discriminating against her because of her disability.
Name some things that you think people should be criminally charged for,for just having it in their possession.
I think WMD's but not much else.
REPORT: NFL found 11 under-inflated Patriots game balls
I'm from Boston and until about 3 years ago, before hearing a Brian Tuohy interview, I was a HUGE Pats fan. So happy I woke from that before it was too late.
WAKE UP PEOPLE!!!!!!!!
I'm curious as to how the refs (the ones to ensure a "fair" game) didn't notice this. I think they handle the balls a little more than a single interception. NO? NOT AFTER EVERY PLAY ;)
I've never had someone I dated die, to my knowledge. It's not a welcome first, but I suppose the older we survive, the more we will know those who don't.
I dated her prior to TwelveOhTwo and I getting together. We both know her, and her husband (they married after we did). We weren't very social, but we did see the other couple out a few times over the past years, and were friendly.
I don't know what I'm feeling right now, it's all over the map and also causing headaches (and, in different places than the concussion normally causes them, so I'm processing/integrating I suppose). Thanks for your support.

Numerous FX Brokers Shutter After Suffering "Significant Losses" Following SNB Stunner
In a re-run of the catastrophic trading losses that occurred around the Russian Ruble collapse last month (as we described here and here in great detail), two FX brokers (US-based FXCM and New Zealand-based Excel Markets) announced tonight that they “can no longer meet regulatory minimum capitalization requirements," due to "significant losses" suffered by clients. For FXCM these losses mean a $225 million negative equity balance and they are actively discussing alternatives with regulators. For Excel Markets, it is over... "we will not be able to resume business...Client positions will be closed within the next hour."

The Massachusetts State Police now say a total of 29 people were arrested after protesters shut down Route 93 heading into Boston during the rush-hour commute Thursday morning.
"They caused a serious risk to public safety," the state police said in a tweet.
The highway has since reopened, but the police expected residual backups.
This article says they "handcuffed themselves to concrete" which isn't entirely accurate -- they stuck their arms in the barrels, and had concrete poured in, so they couldn't be removed.
How about... seeing as the geographic birthplace of the Daily Paul was Somerville, Massachusetts, the Daily Paul could be added to this roster of "Living History" museums: http://www.discovernewengland.org/new-england-activities/new...
Hmm. Here's how it could work. Just thinking out loud here...
...SETS: rooms of different sizes depicting home and office settings, where I assume most members access the Daily Paul; but also various other settings such as a coffee shop, airline terminal, etc.; plus a couple outdoor settings such as a Manhattan street, West Virginia strip mine, etc. Home and office settings would mostly be actual rooms. Other settings would be treated as any theater set, for example, these from "OKlahoma!" and "The Magic Flute," respectively:
...PROPS: three categories of props would be needed:
