FDA Investigating Link Between Vaping and Seizures

I was going to post a link to the FDA probe into a possible link between vaping and seizures but decided to post this video instead because it’s cooler.

Thanks for all you’ve done.  RIP.

I make guitar picks, they kind of give me that blank stare, but I equate what I do with making paintbrushes for artists. I’m like the guy that made Leonardo Da Vinci’s paintbrush. You know what I mean? I have the opportunity to work with the greatest guitar players of our time.”


How Does Music Benefit the Brain? – Medical News Today

I work from a home office located in Edmond, OK.  At the AHOU meeting several years ago in San Antonio, I met up with an underwriting professional whom I hadn’t seen in years.  He asked what I was doing.  I told him I worked from home.

I’m not surprised.  You always talked about working from home.

I listen to music all day long while working.  The music is mostly classical, occasionally acoustic guitar, sometimes jazz.  I didn’t realize I was feeding my brain.

But music can do so much more, notes Michael Huckabee, professor and director of the University of Nebraska Medical Center Division of Physician Assistant Education.

In an article about the benefits of music on human health, he writes:

”Music does something beyond our understanding. We can call it an endorphin release or a distraction, but it goes much deeper than that. Somehow music just does us good. And the good it does was just proven to be better.”

He speaks of a finding from researchers in Taiwan, who recently reviewed over 360 published studies on music therapy and concluded the data from these studies suggest cancer patients who routinely listen to music exhibit significantly fewer symptoms of depression, pain, fatigue and anxiety.
