Saving My Head from Baldness

One thing that I hoped would never happen to me suddenly did. I noticed after getting out of the shower one day that the top of my head was looking a little thin. I was afraid that my hair was starting to fall out and looked at different ways to counter act it, outside of getting hair plugs or some kind of hair transplant. I found out that Propecia Finasteride is a great product for preventing hair loss, so I got my hands on some as soon as I could.

Most people my age shift into the bald phase when they start to lose their hair. They figure that they won’t look good at all with thinning or lost hair, so they just shave it all off and go completely bald. While the bald look works for some, I don’t think it’s for me.…

Feeling Like a Younger Man

Ever since turning 40, things have been different for me in the bedroom. My wife and I used to have the most amazing times in bed, but things weren’t as fun as before. I didn’t have the same amount of energy that I did when when first got married. It was like I was a sluggish old man who was trying to satisfy a young woman. I didn’t know what to do, and my wife suggested that I try something like Cialis from the Ciali365 store. I thought about it for a long time and decided that my wife was right, so I ordered some of the product.

I was a little nervous about trying Cialis, because I didn’t know how it would affect me.…

My Computer is a Real Mess

Of course I let Shell use my laptop a lot, she is over to my place a lot and I like that a lot. I did not like that she ended up getting some really horrendous malware the other day. Apparently she was on the web looking for some cheap careprost, which is a real mystery to me to be honest. I had not a single clue what she meant, but that is apparently some substance which you put on your eyelashes to make them seem thicker or fuller or whatever. I looked at her eyelashes and tried to figure out if they looked different than usual. She got mad at me for not knowing, but I honestly had not ever really focused on that.…

I Never Thought I’d Have Full Eyelashes

I have never had thick and full eyelashes. It was something I always wanted, but I found that it was something that I would probably not get. At least, that used to be my attitude. I am not the only one in my family with this problem, so I was really surprised to see my cousin with nice thick lashes not long ago. They did not look fake at all, but I knew they had to be. That is why I was surprised when she told me that she had been using Careprost, an eye drop product that was recommended to her by a friend she knows.

I was mostly impressed because they looked so natural on her, which is why I was surprised to find out that they were. They were not attached in any way at all. All she does is use eye drops, and those thick luscious lashes are the result.…

78-year-old Paul McCartney’s fitness routine: yoga headstands and diet

At 78, Beatles co-founder Paul McCartney is still working, writing new music and, until the Covid-19 pandemic hit, performing in concerts. In 2019, McCartney grossed just over $100 million on solo shows, according to Forbes.

One strategy that helps the septuagenarian stay active as he ages? A fitness routine. McCartney described his approach to wellness on a recent episode of the podcast “Smartless,” hosted by Jason Bateman, Sean Hayes and Will Arnett.

“I have a very definite routine,” McCartney explained on the podcast. But he doesn’t have a personal trainer, “it’s just me,” he said.

First, “I get on the mat, and I do a bunch of stuff there,” McCartney said. For example, he said he stretches his legs and uses a foam roller.

“Then, I move over to a cross-trainer,” also known as an elliptical machine, McCartney said. Sometimes he will “do a bit of running” for added cardio.

In total, McCartney said he spends about five or ten minutes on each segment of his workout. “It’s not a huge workout, but it’s good. I like it,” he said.

McCartney’s “favorite bit” of his workout is a headstand that he does to finish his circuit. The musician regularly practices yoga with a group of friends, including actor Alec Baldwin, that he calls “The Yoga Boys,” he said. (A representative for Baldwin did respond to CNBC Make It’s request for comment.)

“If I’m in a gym and all the big guys have got big weights and they’re doing all the big stuff, at the end I do a headstand,” he said. “And they come over to me [and say], ‘That’s pretty impressive man.'”

Yoga and meditation have been part of McCartney’s routine since his Beatles days. In the ’60s, The Beatles famously helped popularize Transcendental Meditation, a form of meditation that involves sitting for 20 minutes twice a day and repeating a mantra.

As the story goes, George Harrison’s wife, Patti Harrison, suggested that the band meet with Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, an Indian spiritual guru who was known for introducing Transcendental Meditation to the West. McCartney has referred to meditation as “a lifelong gift.”

“Whenever I have a chance in a busy schedule, I’ll do it, if I’m not rushing out the door with some crazy stuff to do,” he wrote in a 2015 blog post.

Today, Transcendental Meditation is a proprietary practice taught by certified teachers. Hedge fund billionaire Ray Dalio took up Transcendental Meditation after hearing about the benefits from The Beatles. And fellow billionaire Oprah Winfrey is also a fan of the practice.

McCartney said on the podcast that his vegetarian diet is another way he stays in shape.

McCartney has been a vegetarian since the late ’70s, long before plant-based diets were trendy. “You can get loads of vegetarian options these days, so it’s not like it was like in the old days when you just got the boiled sprout,” he said in an interview with Wired published in September 2018.

The precision medicine market report has been aggregated by collecting informative data of various dynamics such as market drivers, restraints, and opportunities. Furthermore, the precision medicine market report offers a detailed analysis of the latest industry developments and trending factors in the market that are influencing the market growth.

Global Precision Medicine Market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 9.9% from 2021-2026 to reach US$ 105.6 billion by 2026.

Market Overview

Precision medicine is known to be one of the most promising approaches for tackling the diseases that have thus far eluded effective treatments or cures. Several indications such as cancer, neurodegenerative diseases, and rare genetic conditions take an immense toll on individuals, families, and societies. Cancer is amongst the leading cause of mortality worldwide with an estimation of 9.6 million deaths in 2018. The most common cancers include lung (2.09 million cases), breast (2.09 million cases), colorectal (1.80 million cases), prostate (1.28 million cases), non-melanoma skin (1.04 million cases), stomach (1.03 million cases).

The rising demand for preventive care and advances in next-generation sequencing (NGS) technologies have resulted in an unprecedented proliferation and deluge of genomic sequence data, thereby driving the market growth of the precision medicine sector. In the last 15 years, the cost of mapping a human genome has fallen from US$ 100 million to below US$ 1,000, allowing the use of data from patient DNA to become a significant viable method to provide precise, actionable recommendations before symptoms occur. The growth of the industry is also fueled by scientific discovery, alignment of incentives, regulatory decisions, consumer interest and demand, and advances in technology. The growth of the market for precision medicine is also supported by the increasing patient adherence to treatment and rising prevalence of oncology indications.

Impact of COVID-19:

As the pandemic is spreading rapidly, clinicians treating COVID-19 are in desperate need of effective therapy, as the development of an effective vaccine remains a remote possibility. Given the urgent nature of the pandemic and the number of companies and researchers developing COVID-19 related therapies, there are more than 560 drug development programs in the pipeline with over 370 trials been reviewed by FDA. For instance, Boehringer Ingelheim initiated a Phase II study of BI 764198, a TRPC6 inhibitor to alleviate the damage to the lung and decrease the risk or severity of acute respiratory complications in patients hospitalized for COVID-19.

My Creative and Theatrical Fitness Plan

BWW Blog: My Creative and Theatrical Fitness Plan
Cassie Maurer and her pup Chanel
helping her with homework
back in the beginning of
quarantine this March.

Ah, the holidays. Every year come late November, we BFA college students enter a sedentary period known as: winter break. Speaking for myself, at least. I morph from active, driven student almost instantly to couch potato. I’ve made it a goal of mine this year for that not to be the case. As opposed to sitting and watching Hallmark Christmas movies all day (though, trust me, I will absolutely be finding time to do this!), I’ve decided to make a fitness plan for myself to follow. But not just any fitness plan, no! This fitness plan is for working my creative and theatrical muscles while away from school… and I suppose I should exercise my physical muscles, as well. Keeping in mind, though, that this is called “winter break” for a reason, I will strive to achieve balance and not overwork myself.

Maybe it’s just me and my relationship with my family, but every time I come home, I feel as though I am being demanded to perform: “Sing us a song, Cassie! C’mon we sent you off to school to do this; can’t you just sing a little for us right now, pleeeease?!” It’s constant. Naturally, I tell them no, and I am met with displeasure. (Don’t worry! They won’t be shocked that I’m writing this; I’ve confronted them about it plenty of times. I think (and hope) by now they know that I won’t do tricks on command like a circus animal.) Anyways, ever since beginning my training in college, I have found it difficult to exercise my voice whilst at home. In fact, whenever I do just shut my door and sing, I’ll often open my door afterward to see my dad sitting there listening (very cute and supportive, I know, but no privacy!). I caught my mother and sister doing this today actually! How timely! Thankfully, I’ve sort of gotten used to that feeling due to recent circumstances. Because of the pandemic, all of my voice lessons, and my those of my roommates, were moved online, so I’ve grown accustomed to singing in my room and hearing them right outside my door. They, however, are Musical Theatre majors like me, so if I crack or fudge something, then I know that they understand. Judging from their commentary while watching American Idol, I’m not sure that my family understands quite the same… That’s what always makes me nervous. Despite this, though, I will sing this break! Here is my vocal exercise plan:

  • Daily: Vocal functions before bed.

  • Weekly: Follow a recorded lesson. Do vocalese and revisit a song.

  • Whenever possible: Sing in the car sans plan or judgement.

  • Whenever I remember: Releasing my jaw and tongue while not singing. And practicing raspberries for releasing tongue tension!

Acting gets trickier to practice at home, as well. After all, it’s not like I can just give myself an acting class. Thinking

Dubai Fitness Challenge: Meet athletes who impressed Sheikh Hamdan

Meet the two Dubai-based endurance athletes who were crowned stars of this year’s Dubai Fitness Challenge by Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai.

Dubai residents Ghani Souleyman from Togo and Filipino national Paolo Mangilinan said they pushed themselves to the limit for the Dubai Fitness Challenge this year, and are deeply honoured with Sheikh Hamdan’s special mention.

While Souleyman ran an ultramarathon distance of 45 km per day for 30 days, Mangilinan swam 10 km per day for 30 days.

Sheikh Hamdan tweeted the duo’s pictures and said, “Well done to the two stars of the Challenge.” He added, “Thank you to everyone who took part in @DXBFitChallenge, an initiative that works to transform Dubai into one of the world’s most active and dynamic cities. It motivated us all to set tougher personal goals and actually achieve them.”

Endurance swimming coach swam for 4 hours every day

An endurance swimming coach and Dubai resident for ten years, Mangilinan said, “It was really overwhelming and an honour to receive these kind words from Sheikh Hamdan today.” For 30 days, he swam along the coast of Dubai and on one of the days of the challenge, he swam all the way to the World Islands.

He told Khaleej Times, “I would start swimming at 6:30 am everyday and would end by about 9:30 am.”

Mangilinan had a team accompany him on a kayak for safety purposes. “The kayak would carry special nutrition and hydrating drinks and something to eat.”

He added, “I think I have swum all over the coast of Dubai. Some days I would swim from Black Palace Beach to Burj Al Arab and on day 29 I swam from Kite Beach all the way to the World Islands.”

Meanwhile, Ghani Souleyman, the endurance runner from Togo told Khaleej Times, “I felt very good hearing from Sheikh Hamdan. I really appreciate the kind gesture and have a lot of gratitude towards him for organizing this event despite the pandemic. It means a lot, to hear words of encouragement from the Crown Prince.”

The endurance athlete and trainer shared footage of his runs on the Instagram handle @ghanisouley and inspired many others to run as well. On the first day of the Fitness Challenge, he did an ultramarathon on Kite Beach. He would wake up at 2:00am, run 45 km and then head to work. Mid-challenge, Ghani and Mangilinan even sent inspiring cheer messages to each other over Instagram as well.
