MYJ | eHope: City of Hope Newsletter

If you follow this clip you will find the latest news from City of Hope, the NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center in Duarte, CA, Southern California, an independent biomedical research, treatment and education center dedicated to preventing and treating all forms of cancer. This is one of only 40 National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Centers nationwide and a founding member of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network. An independent biomedical research, treatment and education institution, this center is a world-renowned leader in the fight to conquer cancer, diabetes, HIV/AIDS and other life-threatening diseases. This is the medical center that provided and managed my unrelated donor stem cell transplant in August 2007 and then provided the state-of-the-art TomoTherapy for my recurring mantle cell lymphoma last September.

MYJ | 1968 Nobel winner passes; studied protein synthesis

Image
Blogger Note | Cancer survival patients like me owe much to a previous generation of great scientific researchers like Marshall Nirenberg. Almost no day expires without finding reports like this about any one of the members of a legion of great scientists to whom we all owe a great debt.

QUOTING THIS SOURCE | "We feel like [we are] losing our close friend who has created the base of the current molecular biology and translational medicine," Akira Kaji of the University of Pennsylvania and Hideko Kaji of Thomas Jefferson University, who both studied protein synthesis at the time of Nirenberg's key discovery and interacted with many researchers in his lab group, wrote in an email to The Scientist. "In our opinion, his contribution is one of the greatest among Nobel laureate[s] who received the prize in physiology and medicine. He discovered common language used throughout the living matter from the simplest virus to the most complicated living matter, human being[s]…

E-MAILED FROM A FRIEND(who has a keen eye for this stuff)



As a bagpiper, I play many gigs.  Recently I was asked by a funeral director  to play at a graveside service for a homeless man.  He had no family or friends, so the service was to be at a pauper's cemetery in the Kentucky back-country.  As I was not familiar with the backwoods, I got lost and being a typical man I didn't stop for directions. I finally arrived an hour late,  saw the funeral guy had evidently gone, and the hearse was nowhere in sight.

There were only the diggers and crew left and they were eating lunch.  I felt badly and apologized to the men for being late.  I went to the side of the grave and looked down and the vault lid was already in place. I didn't know what else to do, so I started to play.  The workers put down their lunches and began to gather around.  I played out my heart and soul for this man with no family and friends.  I played like I've never played before.  And as I played 'Ama…
