Farrah Fawcett and Michael Jackson

Thursday, June 25th, 2009

It’s a sad day. Two of America’s greatest killers — cancer and heart disease — have today taken the lives of two of its (and the world’s) greatest stars, Farrah Fawcett (62) and Michael Jackson (50), respectively. Both cultural icons, both still young. May you rest in peace. No further words… only thoughts.

Biosphere 2

Friday, June 19th, 2009

Two years and 20 minutes, that’s how long Jane Poynter spent in Biosphere 2 alongside Calorie Restriction (CRON) pioneer, Roy Walford and six others from 1991 to 1993.

Here’s her story as recounted at the recent TEDx event in California, the first of the new independently-run TED Talk offshoot seminars.

I hope you enjoy this bit of environmental and dietary history.

David Wolfe’s Longevity Now

Monday, June 15th, 2009

You’re going to be hearing a lot about this over the next couple of weeks: Raw food guru, David Wolfe, will soon be releasing what he’s calling “the culmination of my life’s work and research into how to help others live longer, look younger and feel better.” And, let’s just say has a ton of influential friends, like Kevin Gianni.

In between now and then, he’ll be sharing several videos, starting with the one he announced today on — apropos the times — how to boost your immunity.

One thing’s for sure, it’s entertaining as ever. :)

What I mean is, there are always several things I figuratively stand up and cheer in his presentations, as in the one above when he speaks of medicinal mushrooms.

Then, there are the other parts, when “ormus” and “grounding pads” start sprinkling the lexicon, that cause me to cringe and wonder if his main message is thus tainted. (Though, based on the comments under his video, people seem to eat it up.)

I’d like to hear how you’re reacting to the videos as he releases them. Please do come back and comment.
