Now she wants to help other Alzheimer
An accountant by trade, he suddenly began to struggle even with basic math. And although he was a whiz with technology, he found that he couldn't operate a simple calculator, let alone a computer.
one time, he could practically take apart a computer, said his wife, Dr. Mary Newport, the medical director of the newborn intensive care unit at Spring Hill Regional Hospital in Hernando County. awhile, he couldn't even turn one on. got worse.
His personality changed. He became vacant, distant. He developed tremors. His gait became unsteady. Then, he Akeem Jordan Jersey couldn't explain passages he'd read. And, finally, he couldn't read at all.
It was clear to Dr. Newport that Steve, at just 53, was developing early onset Alzheimer's, a fact confirmed by testing.
It was 2003, and while researchers were working feverishly to develop effective Alzheimer's treatments, progress was slow.
Still, Dr. Newport knew she had to try whatever was out there.
The commercially available medications didn't help. As Steve's condition worsened, Dr. Newport began scouring the Internet for possible remedies and, at the same time, began trying to enroll Steve in clinical trials for some of the next generation experimental drugs.
When a pharmaceutical company agreed to consider Steve for a clinical trial of a vaccine, she took him to the Byrd Alzheimer's Institute at the University of South Florida to be screened for the study and prayed that he would score in the mild to moderate range for Alzheimer's symptoms because the company didn't want anyone whose symptoms were so severe that there was little chance of improvement.
Her heart sank, however, when Steve scored just 12 out of 30; he needed to score 16 to be accepted. She continued her online research, while also looking for new medical trials for Steve.
Dr. Newport's research yielded an interesting discovery: a patent for a drug whose main ingredient was medium chain triglycerides (MCT), the same ingredient found in large quantities in coconut oil. A small pilot study found that the drug helped slow and even reverse the effects of Alzheimer's in a significant percentage http://www.redskinsonlineprostore.com/WOMENS-BARRY-COFIELD-JERSEY.html of those tested.
But the drug wasn't on the market yet. In fact, the FDA had yet to approve a large clinical trial of the drug. Jason Hatcher Womens Jersey It seemed to be a dead end.
In May 2008 she took Steve to be screened for a trial of an Eli Lilly drug. She coached him on the way, reminding him of the date and the city where they were headed in hopes he would remember enough to pass the test. He didn't. Steve scored a 14, again below the 16 needed to enter the trial.
On the way home, Dr. Newport thought about her research on MCT and, out of sheer desperation, drove an hour out of her way to the only health food store she was sure would have coconut oil.
thought, do I have to lose,' Dr. Newport said.
She poured a couple of tablespoons on Steve's oatmeal the next morning, then stirred in a couple more with his dinner.
She drove him back to USF the next afternoon to take the test again, and to her relief, Steve scored an 18 this time.
Although Steve was accepted into the trial, Dr. Newport thought she might be onto something and continued feeding him coconut oil. She said his personality returned, the hitch in his step went away and he began to read again.
said it was like a light switch clicked on and the fog lifted, she said.
family kind of confirmed what I was seeing. After a family gathering, they said he recognized people he hadn't recognized before and he could keep up with the conversation. And within a couple of weeks, it was clear this was real. Steve Newport's response to coconut oil is real is a matter being hotly debated in medical circles and among Alzheimer's support groups.
In 2008, Dr. Newport wrote a report about her husband's experience with coconut oil and tried to circulate it at national conferences sponsored by the Alzheimer's Association but said she was blocked by the group.
The Alzheimer's Association, the nation's leading advocacy group for sufferers of the disease, says it does not endorse what it calls foods that don't undergo the same rigorous scientific testing as pharmaceuticals do.
we get information all the Akeem Jordan Elite Jersey time about something someone has tried and it worked, and what do we think? said Kay Redington, CEO of the Central and North Florida Chapter of the Alzheimer's Association.
when you see advances made in science and treatment, it's usually not someone who took something in their kitchen. It's scientists using rigorous standards in testing. Newport, herself, acknowledges that it's too soon to brand coconut oil a wonder drug, admitting that it needs further investigation.
Many companies and academics involved in Alzheimer's research go further, dismissing the remedy as unproven and fretting that Alzheimer's sufferers and their caretakers might embrace an ineffective and oversimplistic cure and ignore more promising drugs on the market or in development.
But the current Alzheimer's drugs are, by Jason Hatcher Jersey most accounts, only moderately effective, and only for a short period of time.
Redington, of the Alzheimer's Association, acknowledged that the drugs on the market temporarily ease symptoms of the disease for some sufferers although many people can't tolerate the side effects after 12 to 18 months, even those effects wear off and they begin deteriorating again. is some promising research under way by private companies and the National Institutes of Health, she said, that seeks to short circuit Alzheimer's years before it manifests itself in patients.
Dr. Newport is keenly aware of the ineffectiveness of the current raft of Alzheimer's drugs and wonders why the Alzheimer's Association doesn't at least redskinsonlineprostore.com/WOMENS-ROY-HELU-JERSEY.html make sufferers aware of the possible benefits of coconut oil.
do they have to lose? It won't hurt, but it could help, she said.
It isn't just Steve Newport's experience with coconut oil that intrigues his wife, however. Experiments in mice and small scale trials in people have yielded encouraging evidence that medium chain triglycerides, the key ingredient in coconut oil, slow and even reverse the effects of Alzheimer's.

NBA http://www.texansonlineprostore.com/WOMENS-ANDRE-JOHNSON-JERSEY.html revenue per playoff game
sweep every series) en route to their 2nd straight title. As I watched the Miami Heat trounce the Indiana Pacers in game 7 of the 2013 Eastern Conference Finals, it seemed apparent that they definitely had the capability to do so. I then thought of what is most certainly a ridiculous but nevertheless interesting idea. increase revenue. (This is not my question, so please don't answer that!)
I agree, J.J. Watt Authentic Jersey there's no way a group of professional athletes would even risk such a thing, but it got me wondering, how much revenue does a team make for a playoff game? I know it's driven largely by ticket cost and arena size, but is there any per team data available?
On ticket sales alone in 2012 13 the Heat made 1.44 million per game. That said, the average NBA fan spends something like and additional $25 (the numbers for cost I see seem to indicate that www.redskinsonlineprostore.com/WOMENS-JOHN-RIGGINS-JERSEY.html it's tickets for 4 + $100 which then divided 4 ways gives us $25). The Heat regularly sell out regular season games and I'm sure they fill to capacity for these playoff games. The max capacity for their arena is listed at 19,600. Which puts combined concessions and parking at around half a million dollars per game.
That means their revenue including concessions and parking comes in at least 2 million dollars per game Jadeveon Clowney Texans Jersey (this is low considering they raise average ticket prices for playoff games).
This suggests that by playing 2 extra home playoff games the heat brought in an additional 4 million dollars in J.J. Watt Texans Jersey revenue.
However, this doesn't necessarily directly benefit the Heat. They Jadeveon Clowney Limited Jersey are subject to a revenue sharing agreement with the league and as much as 30% of their profits may be shared.

I would like to start experimenting with recipes from China, Korea, Japan, Thailand, Malaysia and Vietnam and eventually tackle a dish or two from other areas in that region of the world.
I live in a somewhat remote area with no access to an Asian grocery, so I plan to purchase the kitchen accessories online and have them shipped. I'd like to put in a large onetime order to reduce the costs and impacts associated with shipping.
I cook a fair amount of Chinese food and other than the wok the only specialized tool I use regularly is a dedicated steamer pot. It has two baskets that stack on top of the main water vessel and you can cook enough for a family of four in it.
The wok is not going to give you "real" stirfry unless it has a huge heat source under it; your home stove will not get hot NFL Jerseys China enough. You can get specialized propane burners that point a bunch of jets all around the round wok, but I wouldn't use on indoors.
There are specialized (ceramic, I think?) containers meant for making casserolestyle dishes, but I can't remember the name of them offhand.

I eventually got pretty pissed with using a wok on a normal western stove, they're not really built to accommodate a wok. I took a lead from SheSimmers and started using cast iron. It works much better with western stoves. She uses chopsticks as cooking implements sometimes and we also have some extra large soup bowels for dishes like pho.
And yeah, wok cooking on a propane burner (outside) is way better.

I think you're almost there. Maybe you'd like to learn to cut with cleaver (pdf alert), buy a cheap one to find out if you like it. There's lots and lots of cutting going on in Asian cookery and using the cleaver speeds up the task. I bought mine 20+ years ago for $12 and I sharpen it once in a while. It's still in great shape.
I bought Wholesale NFL Jerseys this rice washing colander last year and I can't believe I never thought of it before. Saves you the juggling with the lid.
You probably already have lots of little bowls. Use them when you are cutting and preparing the food.

i have a dumb electric stove, so i use a huge, high walled, skillet (and have to "stir fry" a little slower). a splash guard and a spider strainer are useful if you're frying. i love wholesale nfl jerseys my santoku knife.
i know you said you had the ingredients down but as Cheap Jerseys a note, unless you are already familiar with the brand of pastes and sauces (oyster, fish, black bean, etc), get a few different brands. there are huge differences between them sometimes.

I come from a Vietnamese family, and I wouldn't say you need much more than you already have (to prepare Vietnamese food, anyway).
I'd recommend getting a big stock pot if you don't already have one (broth galore!), and remember to use wooden chopsticks when frying food the nonwood ones get ugly bloated tips if you use them.
