To Crisp or Not To Crisp

So my new project has been to organize my house sort of a spring cleanning. I started with the kitchen because I feel like the countertops and flow of the place just isn't working especially the fridge! I have been doing a little research on the best ways to store produce herbs etc. I have found out a lot of interesting things, but what I am still up in the air about is what do you use the crisper drawers for, and high humidity or low?

What are some of your fridge storage tips?

Paralyzed man walks

This is a really cool Discovery! I am very interested to see what come out of this.

With Electrical Stimulation to the Spinal Cord, Paralyzed Man Walks Again

Published May 20, 2011

Rob Summers On the Treadmill University of Louisville via CBS News

Electrical impulses sent to a paralyzed man's spinal cord allow him to walk again, researchers say. Rob Summers, 25, can voluntarily move his feet and hips and walk on a treadmill with support, in what could be a major breakthrough for the treatment of paralysis.

The research team, led by Dr. Susan Harkema of the University of Louisville, Ky., stressed that the treatment is not a cure for paralysis and that it worked with just one patient in one trial. But researchers not involved in the study say it is promising - one UK doctor told the BBC it was "mind-blowing."

The findings appear to show that the legs and spinal cord, not the brain, are in control of movement. That means interruption of messages from the brain may not preclude paralyzed patients from walking again - they would just need new electrical signals to stimulate the spinal cord.

Summers appeared in various media outlets Friday to discuss the research.

Weeks after winning the College World Series with Oregon State University in 2006, Summers was hit by a drunk driver, suffering spinal cord damage that paralyzed him from the chest down. Neuroscientists implanted 16 electrodes in his spine, and sent electrical impulses to his lower spinal cord, mimicking the signals normally sent by the brain to initiate movement. Summers was suspended over a treadmill while the signals were transmitted to his spine. Writing in the British medical journal The Lancet, researchers say the spinal cord's own neural network, combined with sensory information from his legs, is able to to control muscle and joint movement.

Summers trained for two years with a treadmill and physical therapists moving his legs to help him stand and walk.

V. Reggie Edgerton of the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA said sensory information is sent via neural networks in the legs directly to the spinal cord. The sensory feedback allows Summers to balance himself, bear his own weight and take steps over various speeds and directions, Edgerton said in a news release.

In a statement, Summers said the treatment has changed his life.

"For someone who for four years was unable to even move a toe, to have the freedom and ability to stand on my own is the most amazing feeling," he said.

He was left with some sensation below the chest, so it's not clear whether the treatment would work for spinal cord injury patients who experience no sensation. What's more, Summers was an athlete in excellent physical condition before his injury, which could have helped his rehabilitation.

Still, his doctors hope that someday, patients with spinal cord injuries could use a portable electrical stimulation unit to move independently once again.

The work was funded by the National Institutes of Health and the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation.

My new projects

I have been Trying two new things lately the first one is loosing some weight I have not managed to loose any really but I haven't put all of my efforts into it yet. I have managed to stay about the same weight so that is a little accomplishment. Nate said that he would buy me a new wedding ring to motivate me so I better get moving, of course I don't really want to let the old one go...


The next thing is coupons. oh boy I had no idea how much effort this was going to take. The thing that makes me so mad is that the stores are out of everything that I was planning on purchasing by the time I make it to the store. It really frustrates me!! Check out the whole story at my other blog.

Stare Down

So you know when you watch Americas Funniest Home Movies and you think how were they able to get that on film, well my friend I have actually done it. I got home from watching the Oscars last night to find my cats having a stare down competition with with the neighborhood cat through the glass door anywise all of the sudden I hear a THUMP! and well see for yourself.....


video


The best part about this is that this wasn't the first or even the second time that cat did this, that is how I had enough time to find the camera and get the shot in. Poor little Ashlyn did not like the noise that snuggles was making. wow didn't know she had it in her.

Sacrament

What a day today. I decided to go to church for the first time since Ashlyn was born, well maybe not the first but its been a long time. In order to make this happen I had to get up at 6am so that I could get Nate, AShlyn and Myself ready before 9am, that my fried is commitment. And it wouldn't have happened if I didn't Pray the night before to make sure that I didn't sleep in and that all would go smoothly. Little did I know that his idea of not letting me sleep in was having Ashlyn wake up at 630 am, well I have to say thank you because it worked.....

So anywise I got everyone up and dressed without any major problems. Then we get to sacrament. They had a very nice musical number by the ward choir, when it ended all was quiet except for the two year old next to me yelling " Yeah, Yeah" while clapping. I was so embarrassed! She made it up to me when she tried to sing the hymns with everyone. ahhhh, ooooo. It was precious!


Then we ended the night with Oscars at my parents house and a cat trying to break into my house ( video to come ), and it not like when I thought the deer tried to break into my house...
