Two male African penguins which have formed a same sex partnership with one another at Toronto Zoo are to be separated and encouraged to mate with females.
With Pedro and Buddy’s species on the brink of extinction, Tom Mason, curator of birds and invertebrates, insists that the zoo cannot afford to let a season go by without the pair passing on their genes.
“If [Pedro and Buddy] weren’t genetically important, then we’d let them do their thing,” Mr Mason explained.
The plight of Buddy, 20, and Pedro, 10, has caused something of an outcry in Canada. The birds, both bred in... Read More
At the turn of the Twentieth Century, the most common cause of death was from infectious diseases, such as Pneumonia, Tuberculosis and Influenza. Infant mortality was high worldwide and the treatment for sexually transmitted diseases such as Syphilis was almost non-existent. With the development of Penicillin, subsequent antibiotics and vaccinations for diseases such as Polio, in the early part of the century, everything changed. Life span increased and the “mechanical diseases”, such as Heart Disease and Cancer, became the leading cause of death.
Currently, we have come full... Read More

As a neurologist trying to diagnose Alzheimer’s, amongst the shortcuts one uses are tests for short term memory. One gives a patient unrelated few phrases to remember, like three red roses, one white envelope, 1700 Sansom Street. One repeats this once again, asking the patient to repeat and remember it and then distracts the patient with irrelevant small talk for a few minutes. Then the demand is made for the patient to repeat the series in correct order without prompting or hints.
Alzheimer’s patients in the early phase fail to repeat correctly. It is not that memory is the sine qua... Read More
I don’t think many knew, besides his inner circle, that Steve Jobs could’ve possibly beaten his fatal cancer if he had only taken his doctors advice and succumbed to traditional medical procedures, particularly, an operation which could’ve removed his tumors much sooner than he decided. This information has been coming out as the release of his authorized autobiography arrive on everyone’s Kindle, I-Pad, and Bookshelf.

As you all know I am a Mom, a stay at home, busy Mom. Some of you know that I have 4 children, very few of you know my daughter Marissa was a preemie. She was born at 28 weeks gestation weighing in at a mere 2 pounds 5 ounces and 15 inches long. Our story and experience is a pretty intense story. I would love to share the story with you. I was eighteen when I found out I was expecting a baby. The Dr. said I was due the end of September. I was pretty nervous but I knew it would all work out.
When I was about 6 months pregnant I started feeling miserable. When I went to my OB appointments... Read More
