Tribute night at the Starry Plough brings tributes to the 2 biggest bands to come out of the Athens, GA music scene: The B-52s and R.E.M. Get in your Chrysler - big as a whale - and travel the dirty back roads of Athens with high-energy tribute Private Idaho ( http://www.facebook.com/pages/Private-Idaho-Band/132835800291?fref=ts )for all your surf-influenced party hits. R.E.M. tribute band Chronic Town ( http://www.facebook.com/chronictowntribute )have channeled Athens' favorite sons since 2004 and deliver an experience not unlike the real animal, starting at 9:30.
Where is this event at in the plaza? I looked tonight but couldn't find it or anyone who knew about it. No contact number either.
Ok Lobsters back! Join us for the next two weeks!
Over the past year, CCSVI Clinic and its researchers and specialists have been studying the Combination venoplasty/autologous stem cell infusion protocol developed by Regenetek Cellular Technologies with the collaboration of outside labs and bioproducts manufacturers. As laboratory techniques gain ever-increasing sophistication based on new scientific methodologies for enhancing somatic cells into preferred lineages in vitro, the therapeutic outcomes for patients with neurological disorders have also been improving. Deb O’Connell who was treated at the Clinic in mid-September, 2012 recovered so quickly from her serious long-term degenerative disease condition that she experienced a wave of improvements while still in the hospital.
It’s a matter of medical record that Deb had been wheelchair bound for 10 years (completely non-ambulatory) with multiple co-morbidities when she entered the program on September 9; she was 9.5 on the EDSS scale as assessed by a neurologist, was down to 80 lbs in body weight, could not breathe effectively, speak, or take in food by mouth due to dysphagia. Her pain was chronic and significant. When she left the Clinic on September 24th , she walked out of the doors and into a waiting van to go to the airport. At the time of her discharge from the Clinic, she could breathe normally, effectively speak once again, eat any types of food she desired and her pain had all but disappeared. At the time of this writing she is back home in Canada and reports that she continues to recover (especially her contractured hands), shows no signs of new disease symptoms, and has gained 18 lbs since her therapies, less than 3 weeks ago. She has now begun a regular physiotherapy program and is gaining walking strength and balance. The recapitulation of the course of her disease (MS) within days, provides evidence that the in vitro requirement of cell pluripotency has correctly been identified with respect to adult cell source origin, time, and manipulation in culture. http://www.ccsviclinic.ca/?p=1084
It's gonna be a clusterfuck!

Spectacular feats of sitting! Eliza O'Malley truly deserved the gold for her operatic sitting solo, and the judges' corruption this year was without parallel. The sitting mastery of Scoop Nisker, the genius of Dr. Mozzarrelli diving into a cup of beer on a chair, the compelling speech on sitting addiction, the "Beware the Chair" narration all deserved recognition. I'll never sit quite the same way again.
THIS IS THE WRONG DATE! This show is at Eli's on September 28th, FRIDAY :)
As Co-Director of our fantastic festival, let me clarify the cost of the shuttle. It is $5 for adults and teenagers, $2 for children 12 and under. If we run at full capacity, the price of the shuttle tickets will barely cover the cost of operating the system. Merritt College is accessible by AC transit, check 511.org for more info. Buses start to run at 10:30, last bus from Merritt is at 4 PM. See you there :)
I find Kack London Square oddly fitting. LOL
This will be our second show at the Kensington Circus Pub. We had a great time last month! Nice atmosphere for listening and for dancing, too. Louisiana-style gumbo for sale, along with tasty British pub food. So come on by!

"What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Infant Circumcision" by Dr. Paul Fleiss and Dr. Frederic Hodges should have also been mentioned as banned by Amazon.com.
Not to be missed!!!
Buy a ticket and support Kitchen of Champions! This will be a lot of fun, East Bay folks!
Great place to dance salsa on a Saturday night if you want to get away from you typical Cocomo's crowd...

This venue for Lunch Beat Oakland is The Event Center ballroom at 420 14th Street. The address is correct above but the name of the venue is The Event Center.
Chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency (CCSVI), or the pathological restriction of venous vessel discharge from the CNS has been proposed by Zamboni, et al, as having a correlative relationship to Multiple Sclerosis. From a clinical perspective, it has been demonstrated that the narrowed jugular veins in an MS patient, once widened, do affect the presenting symptoms of MS and the overall health of the patient. It has also been noted that these same veins once treated, restenose after a time in the majority of cases. Why the veins restenose is speculative. One insight, developed through practical observation, suggests that there are gaps in the therapy protocol as it is currently practiced. In general, CCSVI therapy has focused on directly treating the venous system and the stenosed veins. Several other factors that would naturally affect vein recovery have received much less consideration. As to treatment for CCSVI, it should be noted that no meaningful aftercare protocol based on evidence has been considered by the main proponents of the ‘liberation’ therapy (neck venoplasty). In fact, in all of the clinics or hospitals examined for this study, patients weren’t required to stay in the clinical setting any longer than a few hours post-procedure in most cases. Even though it has been observed to be therapeutically useful by some of the main early practitioners of the ‘liberation’ therapy, follow-up, supportive care for recovering patients post-operatively has not seriously been considered to be part of the treatment protocol. To date, follow-up care has primarily centered on when vein re-imaging should be done post-venoplasty. The fact is, by that time, most patients have restenosed (or partially restenosed) and the follow-up Doppler testing is simply detecting restenosis and retrograde flow in veins that are very much deteriorated due to scarring left by the initial procedure. This article discusses a variable approach as to a combination of safe and effective interventional therapies that have been observed to result in enduring venous drainage of the CNS to offset the destructive effects of inflammation and neurodegeneration, and to regenerate disease damaged tissue.
As stated, it has been observed that a number of presenting symptoms of MS almost completely vanish as soon as the jugulars are widened and the flows equalize in most MS patients. Where a small number of MS patients have received no immediate benefit from the ‘liberation’ procedure, flows in subject samples have been shown not to have equalized post-procedure in these patients and therefore even a very small retrograde blood flow back to the CNS can offset the therapeutic benefits. Furthermore once the obstructed veins are further examined for hemodynamic obstruction and widened at the point of occlusion in those patients to allow full drainage, the presenting symptoms of MS retreat. This noted observation along with the large number of MS patients who have CCSVI establish a clear association of vein disease with MS, although it is clearly not the disease ‘trigger’.For more information please visit http://www.ccsviclinic.ca/?p=978
