I mean, I need to find a job, and I should be tense about that, but I feel SO much better, physically and mentally, that there&#39;s kind of a cloud of bliss floating around me. I saw my doctor the other day, he and his team seemed really happy with how I am doing. It&#39;s kind of mind boggling to me...how DIFFERENT I feel since I started seeing him. My first appointment was in October, and I really started the diet/supplements around the fist of November. I can&#39;t begin to tell you the difference between the way I felt then and the way I feel now. My dizziness is 90% gone, my brain fog, all the digestive issues, everything is 90% gone. I lapse back quickly if I cheat, but I haven&#39;t cheated much. Eating while traveling is hard....I was craving one of my smoothies by the time we got home yesterday. I&#39;ve also lost weight, which although it wasn&#39;t the primary reason for doing this, has been a great bonus. The biggest difference is really in my brain....the way I feel and think....I&#39;ve lost the sluggishness and the fog that made it hard to function. I feel sharp and bright and clear again. I feel more like myself than I have in some time.</p>\r\n<p>So I&#39;m floating along in my little bliss. The real world and its worries are there but I feel more able to deal with them.</p>\r\n<p>Last night&#39;s last minute dinner. Ernie splurged on a pizza but I quite enjoyed my big bowl of Brussels sprouts, grass fed beef, and pomegranate seeds.</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"https://www.thesandwichlife.com/.a/6a00d8341c632053ef022ad38e3f57200c-pi\"><img alt=\"IMG_5498\" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8341c632053ef022ad38e3f57200c image-full img-responsive\" src=\"https://www.thesandwichlife.com/.a/6a00d8341c632053ef022ad38e3f57200c-800wi\" style=\"display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"IMG_5498\" /></a></p>\r\n<p>We did some more wandering again over the weekend.

I mean, I need to find a job, and I should be tense about that, but I feel SO much better, physically and mentally, that there&#39;s kind of a cloud of bliss floating around me. I saw my doctor the other day, he and his team seemed really happy with how I am doing. It&#39;s kind of mind boggling to me...how DIFFERENT I feel since I started seeing him. My first appointment was in October, and I really started the diet/supplements around the fist of November. I can&#39;t begin to tell you the difference between the way I felt then and the way I feel now. My dizziness is 90% gone, my brain fog, all the digestive issues, everything is 90% gone. I lapse back quickly if I cheat, but I haven&#39;t cheated much. Eating while traveling is hard....I was craving one of my smoothies by the time we got home yesterday. I&#39;ve also lost weight, which although it wasn&#39;t the primary reason for doing this, has been a great bonus. The biggest difference is really in my brain....the way I feel and think....I&#39;ve lost the sluggishness and the fog that made it hard to function. I feel sharp and bright and clear again. I feel more like myself than I have in some time.</p>\r\n<p>So I&#39;m floating along in my little bliss. The real world and its worries are there but I feel more able to deal with them.</p>\r\n<p>Last night&#39;s last minute dinner. Ernie splurged on a pizza but I quite enjoyed my big bowl of Brussels sprouts, grass fed beef, and pomegranate seeds.</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"https://www.thesandwichlife.com/.a/6a00d8341c632053ef022ad38e3f57200c-pi\"><img alt=\"IMG_5498\" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8341c632053ef022ad38e3f57200c image-full img-responsive\" src=\"https://www.thesandwichlife.com/.a/6a00d8341c632053ef022ad38e3f57200c-800wi\" style=\"display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"IMG_5498\" /></a></p>\r\n<p>We did some more wandering again over the weekend.

And that is to point out that any time you get a lot of use out of something, <em>you win</em>.</p>\r\n<p>I circle back around to writing about Billingham (here&#39;s <a href=\"https://billingham.co.uk/\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">their website</a>, which has the least informative &quot;About Us&quot; page I&#39;ve ever encountered) every few years.</p>\r\n<p>I put Billingham in the &quot;High-Status Luxury Veblen-Good brands&quot; category in my <a href=\"https://theonlinephotographer.typepad.com/the_online_photographer/2019/01/revised-camera-bags-brand-list.html\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">Guide to Bag Brands</a>. However, Trevor Johnson said in the Comments that he bought his large Billingham bag in the 1970s and it&#39;s still going strong—&quot;I would certainly not describe Billingham as a Veblen good,&quot; he concludes. Kent said that he bought a large and small Billingham Hadleys 12 years ago, and, &quot;given that both bags are still in great shape, and that I can&#39;t see any reason to replace them, I&#39;d have to say they were a good investment.

I&#39;m not a big camera bag guy unless I&#39;m transporting stuff—I prefer to be out and about with one camera on a shoulder strap—but, having invested in a good one at the start, I really never had to buy another camera bag until I needed one that would fit a laptop computer.</p>\r\n<p>Those didn&#39;t exist when Reagan was President. Portable computers were invented in the 1980s, but laptops in their current svelte notebook form weren&#39;t around then. My stepfather had an early portable computer and by today&#39;s standards it certainly wasn&#39;t very portable. I don&#39;t think his would have fit in the average suitcase, much less a camera bag.</p>\r\n<p>Anyway I didn&#39;t get a new bag until I needed a bag for airline travel that would hold my laptop. I used the Billingham 335 for years and years. So it was an excellent investment, and, yes, a good value.</p>\r\n<p>I wouldn&#39;t buy a 335 today, though. Too heavy. (And won&#39;t hold a laptop.) Some say the closures are finicky, too, but I&#39;d take issue with that—familiarity with the bag is sort of like the film loading procedure in an old Leica M, with their odd removable baseplates; it might seem fussy, but once you learn it you kinda learn to like it. It becomes a mild sort of guild secret that only initiates know. I could open and close my 335 blindfolded.</p>\r\n<p>But I&#39;d pick a different Billingham now. <a href=\"https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1263191-REG/billingham_bi_501548_54_s3_shoulder_bag_sage.html/BI/2144/KBID/2882\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">An S3</a> would be a perfect mid-sized field bag for a small but nimble Fuji or Micro 4/3 walkabout kit.

I think it&#39;s the best looking of all of &#39;em.</p>\r\n<p>Aren&#39;t they <em>all</em> expensive? I guess, but it depends. I thought my Billingham was expensive when I bought it—I think I paid about $280 back then*, and I can&#39;t recall now why I briefly hallucinated that I was rich enough to afford that—but it has long since paid for itself, in the form of all the other bags I didn&#39;t have to buy in all the years I used it.</p>\r\n<p>During the tenure of the Billingham, Kodak sent me a freebie—a black cotton canvas Domke F-803 with Kodak&#39;s own branding. That one literally wore out. Frayed all to hell, and got holes in the corners. And after a while it looked like hell, too. During which time, the Billingham barely aged at all.</p>\r\n<p>I still think I have Billingham in the right category in my Guide to Bag Brands—they&#39;re luxury bags, with their Edwardian horse-set country-house English style—but, no, that doesn&#39;t mean they can&#39;t be a good investment, and a good value.</p>\r\n<p>You just have to keep them a long time or use them a lot, that&#39;s all. A Billingham Eventer bag will still be perfectly serviceable in 2050, I have no doubt. If I was 35, I&#39;d buy one.</p>\r\n<p>And now, I&#39;ll heed David&#39;s plea and stop yakking about bags—until I circle &#39;round to them again, several years from now.</p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: right;\"><em>Mike</em><br /><span style=\"font-size: 10pt;\">(Thanks to David, Trevor, and Kent)</span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: left;\"><span style=\"font-size: 10pt;\">*Adjusted for inflation, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, that&#39;s $640 now, and new ones (in canvas, like mine) cost $440 now.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-size: 10px;\">Original contents copyright 2018 by Michael C.

Bigger than the Pro, with laptop protection, and with some other terrific upgrades and added functionality. It retains a top handle and includes a trolley strap on the back, a removable shoulder strap, covered pockets and zippers, which are more rain resistant, and several insert options (half inserts...one or two...a full insert, or none at all).

I have been buying them for some 25 years myself—starting at a time when Billingham was most reluctant to ship it to me in the heart of mainland Europe (never figured out why).

So my uncle told him he&#39;d just found something in the back of the cab and said he would either pay the metered fare for his ride, with a tip, or he&#39;d give the cabbie what he found, whichever the cabbie wanted. The cabbie really was a betting man, and he chose to take the risk. So my uncle handed over the $100 bill. </em></p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 40px;\"><em>A nice payday for the cabbie—a hundred dollars in 1950 would be equivalent to roughly $1,000 in today&#39;s dollars.</em></p>\r\n<p><strong>Mark L</strong> (<em>partial comment</em>): &quot;I bought the original Hadley back in the 1980s, and replaced the insert last year. I love it so much that I will now only buy gear that fits it.&quot;</p>",

CLS Bank Int&#39;l</em>, this step involves determining whether a claim is directed to a judicial exception, such as an abstract idea.&#0160; If not, then no § 101 rejection can be made.</p>\r\n<p>The updated guidance breaks step 2A into a pair of sub-steps:</p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 40px;\">• In sub-step 2A(i), one is to determine whether the claim recites a judicial exception, such as an abstract idea.&#0160; Abstract ideas are now limited to three categories:&#0160; mathematical concepts, certain methods of organizing human activity, and mental processes.</p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 40px;\">• If so, then in sub-step 2A(ii), one is to determine further &quot;whether the recited judicial exception is integrated into a practical application of that exception.&quot;</p>\r\n<p>If the claim involves such an exception, the second part of the § 101 analysis (step 2B) is applied to determine whether any element or combination of elements in the claim is sufficient to ensure that the claim amounts to significantly more than the judicial exception.&#0160; If this is the case, the claim is patent-eligible under § 101.&#0160; If not, it can be rejected.</p>\r\n<p><strong>Hypothetical Background</strong></p>\r\n<p>Example 37 relates to relocation of icons on a graphical user interface (GUI).&#0160; The background provided by the USPTO is as follows (abbreviated to focus on key aspects):</p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 40px;\">[C]omputer users may have a large number of icons on their display, making it difficult to find the icons most used.&#0160; The typically available ways to organize icons are alphabetically, by file size, and by file type.&#0160; If a computer user wants a non-typical arrangement of icons, the user would need to manually manipulate the icons on their display.</p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 40px;\">Accordingly, applicant&#39;s invention addresses this issue by providing a method for rearranging icons on a [GUI], wherein the method moves the most used icons to a position on the GUI, specifically, closest to the &quot;start&quot; icon of the computer system, based on a determined amount of use.</p>\r\n<p><strong>Claim 1</strong></p>\r\n<p>Claim 1 of Example 37 recites:</p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 40px;\">A method of rearranging icons on a graphical user interface (GUI) of a computer system, the method comprising:<br />&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;receiving, via the GUI, a user selection to organize each icon based on a specific criteria, wherein the specific criteria is an amount of use of each icon;<br />&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;determining, by a processor, the amount of use of each icon over a predetermined period of time; and<br />&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;automatically moving the most used icons to a position on the GUI closest to the start icon of the computer system based on the determined amount of use.</p>\r\n<p>Applying the first sub-step of 2A, the USPTO states that claim 1, under its broadest reasonable interpretation, &quot;covers performance of the limitation in the mind but for the recitation of generic computer components.&quot;&#0160; In other words, &quot;nothing in the claim element precludes the step from practically being performed in the mind,&quot; and &quot;[t]he mere nominal recitation of a generic processor does not take the claim limitation out of the mental processes grouping.&quot;&#0160; Thus, the claim recites an abstract idea.</p>\r\n<p>Moving on to the second sub-step, the USPTO notes that the claim &quot;recites the combination of additional elements of receiving, via a GUI, a user selection to organize each icon based on the amount of use of each icon, a processor for performing the determining step, and automatically moving the most used icons to a position on the GUI closest to the start icon of the computer system based on the determined amount of use.&quot;&#0160; Thus, the claim integrates the mental process into a practical application by reciting &quot;a specific manner of automatically displaying icons to the user based on usage which provides a specific improvement over prior systems.&quot;&#0160; As a result, the claim is eligible under step 2A because it is not directed to a judicial exception, and step 2B need not be applied.</p>\r\n<p><strong>Claim 2</strong></p>\r\n<p>Claim 2 of Example 37 recites:</p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 40px;\">A method of rearranging icons on a graphical user interface (GUI) of a computer system, the method comprising:<br />&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;receiving, via the GUI, a user selection to organize each icon based on a specific criteria, wherein the specific criteria is an amount of use of each icon;<br />&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;determining the amount of use of each <em>icon using a processor that tracks how much memory has been allocated to each application associated with each icon</em> over a predetermined period of time; and<br />&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;automatically moving the most used icons to a position on the GUI closest to the start icon of the computer system based on the determined amount of use.</p>\r\n<p>Key differences between claim 2 and claim 1 are highlighted.</p>\r\n<p>Applying the first sub-step of 2A, the USPTO states that claim 2 does not recite any of the three types of abstract ideas.&#0160; According to the USPTO, the determining step now &quot;requires action by a processor that cannot be practically applied in the mind&quot; because it involves &quot;a processor accessing computer memory indicative of application usage.&quot;&#0160; The USPTO further states that the claim does not recite either of the other two types of abstract ideas (mathematical relationships and methods of organizing human activity) either.&#0160; Like claim 1, claim 2 is eligible under step 2A because it is not directed to a judicial exception, and step 2B need not be applied.</p>\r\n<p><strong>Claim 3</strong></p>\r\n<p>Claim 3 of Example 37 recites:</p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 40px;\">A method of ranking icons of a computer system, the method comprising:<br />&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;determining, by a processor, the amount of use of each icon over a predetermined period of time; and<br />&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;ranking the icons, by the processor, based on the determined amount of use.</p>\r\n<p>Applying the first sub-step of 2A, the USPTO states that claim 3, like claim 1, &quot;covers performance of the [determining] limitation in the mind but for the recitation of generic computer components.&quot;&#0160; Therefore, claim 3 recites a mental process.&#0160; The USPTO notes that the ranking limitation also recites a mental process because &quot;the claim encompasses the user thinking that the most-used icons should be ranked higher than the least-used icons.&quot;</p>\r\n<p>Under the second sub-step of 2A, the USPTO finds that the only additional element is the processor, and that &quot;[t]his generic processor limitation is no more than mere instructions to apply the exception using a generic computer component.&quot;&#0160; Thus, the claim does not integrate the abstract idea of the recited mental process into a practical application thereof, and the claim is therefore directed to an abstract idea.</p>\r\n<p>Invoking step 2B, the USPTO similarly concludes that &quot;the additional element in the claim amounts to no more than mere instructions to apply the exception using a generic computer component.&quot;&#0160; Thus, the 2B analysis follows that of the second sub-step of 2A, resulting in the claim not containing significantly more than the abstract idea.&#0160; Accordingly, the claim is patent-ineligible.</p>\r\n<p><strong>Analysis</strong></p>\r\n<p>The USPTO makes it clear in this example that the mental process category of abstract ideas is not meant to be taken literally.&#0160; It is not limited to steps that are carried out wholly in the human mind.&#0160; Instead, a step that (in theory) could be performed in the mind but is recited as being performed by a processor is still considered a mental step.&#0160; This is a bit of legal fiction to note well.</p>\r\n<p>The distinction between claims 1 and 2 is also quite fine.&#0160; Claim 1 recites &quot;determining the amount of use of each icon over a predetermined period of time&quot; while claim 2 recites &quot;the amount of use of each icon using a processor that tracks how much memory has been allocated to each application associated with each icon over a predetermined period of time.&#0160; While claim 2 is narrower than claim 1, it is not 100% clear why claim 2 is not also reciting a mental process.</p>\r\n<p>The USPTO&#39;s justification for concluding that it does not is that claim 2 involves &quot;a processor accessing computer memory indicative of application usage.&quot;&#0160; But if we are allowed to ignore the literal meaning of the term &quot;processor&quot; in these claims, why is the processor&#39;s use of memory not ignored as well?&#0160; Why isn&#39;t the &quot;computer&quot; qualifier disregarded to find the term &quot;memory&quot; broad enough to encompass human memory?</p>\r\n<p>Perhaps the answer is that the combination of a processor and the specific use of the memory is enough to find the claim not directed to a mental process.&#0160; But the USPTO is silent in this regard, and it remains difficult to know where to draw the line.</p>\r\n<p>Further, the determination of whether a recited abstract idea is integrated into a practical application is similarly vague.&#0160; In claim 1, such an integration is found because the claim recites specific requirements that leads to an improvement over the prior art.&#0160; In claim 3, however, the apparent lack of recited detail was enough to conclude that any such integration was <em>de minimis</em> at best.&#0160; Perhaps the absence of any movement of the icons damned claim 3 to abstractness hell.</p>\r\n<p>From the outset, the <em>Alice </em>test has required a certain suspension of logic in order to follow the Supreme Court&#39;s reasoning.&#0160; By expanding the test with two additional sub-steps, the USPTO is attempting to provide clarity.&#0160; Unfortunately, the USPTO appears to be adopting the same legal fictions that have made the post-<em>Alice </em>§ 101 inquiry so subjective in the first place.</p>",

While claim 2 is narrower than claim 1, it is not 100% clear why claim 2 is not also reciting a mental process.</p>\r\n<p>The USPTO&#39;s justification for concluding that it does not is that claim 2 involves &quot;a processor accessing computer memory indicative of application usage.&quot;&#0160; But if we are allowed to ignore the literal meaning of the term &quot;processor&quot; in these claims, why is the processor&#39;s use of memory not ignored as well?&#0160; Why isn&#39;t the &quot;computer&quot; qualifier disregarded to find the term &quot;memory&quot; broad enough to encompass human memory?</p>\r\n<p>Perhaps the answer is that the combination of a processor and the specific use of the memory is enough to find the claim not directed to a mental process.&#0160; But the USPTO is silent in this regard, and it remains difficult to know where to draw the line.</p>\r\n<p>Further, the determination of whether a recited abstract idea is integrated into a practical application is similarly vague.&#0160; In claim 1, such an integration is found because the claim recites specific requirements that leads to an improvement over the prior art.&#0160; In claim 3, however, the apparent lack of recited detail was enough to conclude that any such integration was <em>de minimis</em> at best.&#0160; Perhaps the absence of any movement of the icons damned claim 3 to abstractness hell.</p>\r\n<p>From the outset, the <em>Alice </em>test has required a certain suspension of logic in order to follow the Supreme Court&#39;s reasoning.&#0160; By expanding the test with two additional sub-steps, the USPTO is attempting to provide clarity.&#0160; Unfortunately, the USPTO appears to be adopting the same legal fictions that have made the post-<em>Alice </em>§ 101 inquiry so subjective in the first place.</p>",

Why is the cost of SPED now a crisis?</p>\r\n<p>Of course school districts have no choice but to address this because the federal government mandates that they provide <em>a free and appropriate education </em>for every student, even the most disabled children.</p>\r\n<p>The <em>Star Tribune</em> reported:</p>\r\n<p><em>School administrators say the mandate&#39;s <strong>growing financial burden</strong> is threatening their ability to provide the same for all students.&#0160;</em></p>\r\n<p><strong><em>Soaring special education costs </em></strong><em>are squeezing the budgets of Minnesota schools — and quickly becoming <strong>school districts’ top priority for the new legislative session.</strong></em></p>\r\n<p><em>School administrators are quick to note that they cannot — and would not — deny special education students their right to an education that meets their needs, no matter the cost. But they say the mandate’s <strong>growing financial burden is threatening their ability to provide the same for all students.</strong></em></p>\r\n<p>So what happens when the cost of SPED students sucks dry the funds for regular ed kids?</p>",

However, this estimate is based on very few reported adverse events.</em></p>\r\n<p><em>&quot;This risk has to be balanced against the risk of contracting yellow fever if you are travelling to an infected area - a nasty disease with a high mortality rate.&quot;</em></p>\r\n<p><em>He said the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) was the UK body charged with looking into adverse side-effects reported from vaccines.</em></p>\r\n<p><em>&quot;They will undoubtedly conduct a proper analysis of this case to ensure it was caused by the vaccine rather than an incidental unconnected cause, such as sepsis.&quot; </em></p>\r\n<p><em>The Lancet</em> has reported a few more <a href=\"https://www.learntherisk.org/travel/bbc-report-on-yellow-fever-vaccine-deaths/\">deaths</a> from the yellow fever vaccine around the world, though curiously all among children and none in the over-60 category:</p>\r\n<p><em>Two deaths were recorded by a team from a specialist World Health Organization centre in Brazil.</em></p>\r\n<p><em>In the first case, a five-year-old girl suffered fever, headache and vomiting three days after being given the vaccine.

It’s unlikely since no one understands precisely why an estimated .05% of people who receive the yellow fever vaccine develop viscerotropic disease.

He said his opinion was based on “scientific advances” as well as his own experience with patients.”</em></p>\r\n<p>Two days later, <em>The Hill</em> published another piece on vaccines.&#0160; It was not another bombshell discovery in favor of parents of children with liability-free vaccine induced autism but a rebuttal from Dr. Hotez.&#0160; If you recall, Hotez is a pharmaceutical-industry spokesperson, author, and father to an adult daughter with autism.&#0160; He’s frequently seen on TV defending vaccines when they cycle through mainstream news’ media stories.&#0160; Besides a staunch defender, he is also of the belief that vaccines do not and cannot cause autism.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p><a href=\"https://thehill.com/opinion/healthcare/425444-vaccines-cannot-and-do-not-cause-autism-theres-no-debate\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">In his latest opinion piece, Hotez</a> once again adamantly defends liability-free vaccines making the following statement: <a href=\"https://thehill.com/opinion/healthcare/425444-vaccines-cannot-and-do-not-cause-autism-theres-no-debate\"></a></p>\r\n<p><strong><em>“Vaccines do not cause autism</em></strong></p>\r\n<p><em>There is no link between vaccines and autism.

He says that, during a group of 5,000 vaccine-autism cases being heard in court on June 15, 2007, he took aside the Department of Justice (DOJ) lawyers he worked for defending vaccines and told them he’d discovered “exceptions in which vaccinations could cause autism.”</em></p>\r\n<p><em>“I explained that in a subset of children, vaccine-induced fever and immune stimulation did cause regressive brain disease with features of autism spectrum disorder,” Dr. Zimmerman&#0160;<a href=\"https://sharylattkisson.com/2019/01/06/dr-andrew-zimmermans-full-affidavit-on-alleged-link-between-vaccines-and-autism-that-u-s-govt-covered-up/\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">now states</a>. He said his opinion was based on “scientific advances” as well as his own experience with patients.”</em></p>\r\n<p>Two days later, <em>The Hill</em> published another piece on vaccines.&#0160; It was not another bombshell discovery in favor of parents of children with liability-free vaccine induced autism but a rebuttal from Dr. Hotez.&#0160; If you recall, Hotez is a pharmaceutical-industry spokesperson, author, and father to an adult daughter with autism.&#0160; He’s frequently seen on TV defending vaccines when they cycle through mainstream news’ media stories.&#0160; Besides a staunch defender, he is also of the belief that vaccines do not and cannot cause autism.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p><a href=\"https://thehill.com/opinion/healthcare/425444-vaccines-cannot-and-do-not-cause-autism-theres-no-debate\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">In his latest opinion piece, Hotez</a> once again adamantly defends liability-free vaccines making the following statement: <a href=\"https://thehill.com/opinion/healthcare/425444-vaccines-cannot-and-do-not-cause-autism-theres-no-debate\"></a></p>\r\n<p><strong><em>“Vaccines do not cause autism</em></strong></p>\r\n<p><em>There is no link between vaccines and autism. I trace the modern anti-vaccine movement alleging vaccine-autism links back to 1998 when a paper was published in The Lancet, a prestigious medical journal, claiming that the live measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine (especially the measles component) might lead to pervasive developmental disorder, a term then used to refer to autism.”</em></p>\r\n<p>First, a correction.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p><a href=\"https://www.rescuepost.com/files/1.lancet-1988.pdf\" rel=\"noopener\" target=\"_blank\">The paper referenced</a> offered a possibility, not a claim:</p>",

And it occurs to me that I want to write for others who want more out of life. That ‘more’ is beyond belief, beyond faith (as most of us understand it) and in some ways even beyond hope, recognition, or pathway to it.</p>\r\n<p>I could just call it love, but that is too complex to leave it at that. As in saying the word “car.” You might think you know what I mean, but that would serve only as a word symbol that could indicate too many things missed without further explanation.</p>\r\n<p>I want to go deeper. Most morning as I read what I consider my daily devotions, I feel, experience, glimpse, perceive in some visceral way, a broader, deeper and yes even what many would call the mystical realm of life, yet not separate from the everydayness we all go through. Some of it comes through religious or spiritual reading, and other comes from scientific research, psychological inquiry, humanities, and the poetry written by people who cannot say such things in prose or narratives as the words fall short of describing the wondrous and the luminous.</p>\r\n<blockquote>\r\n<p>Coleman Barks, who recently published a translation of Rumi’s poetry titled <a href=\"https://amzn.to/2AYOBtF\" title=\"The Soul Of Rumi\"><em><strong>The Soul of Rumi: A New Collection of Ecstatic Poems</strong></em>,</a> said in his introduction, <em>“I avoid God-words, not altogether, but wherever I can, because they seem to take away the freshness of experience and put it inside a specific system. Rumi’s poetry belongs to everyone, and his impulse was toward experience rather than any language or doctrine&quot;.</em></p>\r\n</blockquote>\r\n<p>This resonates in me as well. God-words all too often end up appearing like beautiful butterflies pinned to an insect board where every part can be examined and described, but in truth are so very different from watching an actual butterfly doing it’s butterfly things. We have all had the experience of being mesmerized by one flitting to and fro, landing on a flower, perching on our hand, and reveled in its striking colors and butterfly-ness.</p>\r\n<p>To know about butterflies is not the same as entering a butterfly sanctuary where even though it is an enclosed environment, the air is filled with the buzz and excitement of hundreds or even thousands of butterflies darting this way and that. Watching a child experience total awe and amazement at such a site gives an indication that &quot;knowing about butterflies” might never accomplish.</p>\r\n<p>And so I wonder why, Rumi, an Islamic Sufi mystic is the most widely read poet in the United States? What is it about this wild, ecstatic and sometimes irreverent beloved rascal that intrigues and speaks to so many of us? Might it just be that “experience of aliveness” that he so eloquently puts into simple words and phrases that move us from &quot;knowing about&quot; to the experience of something greater than ourselves that we have nothing left to do but feel a connection to something so large that the only words we can utter with might be “Oh My God”. I could also say “Oh My Love.”</p>\r\n<p>This dear reader is who I write to and for. This community of lovers and seekers who want for themselves so much more. And who wants to share that with others to help move humanity on our evolutionary pathway along as we transcend and include all that has come before us. I hope you will discover along with me, the pearl of great price, the fountain of youth, the philosopher’s stone, or the alchemist’s secret for turning lead into gold. Said even more simply, Loving More and that this, above all, is enough, and leads us to even greater fulfillment and joy.</p>\r\n<blockquote>\r\n<p>Gary Thorp, author of <a href=\"https://amzn.to/2CKHoxB\" title=\"Sweeping Changes\"><strong><em>Sweeping Changes: Discovering the Joy of Zen in Everyday Tasks</em></strong></a>, writes, “In Zen, we speak of throwing ourselves away, or of giving ourselves totally to an action, or of “letting go” of preconceptions. This letting go is what allows the unusual to happen. It might be a perception that transcends anything you have experienced before. Or a brief moment of heightened sensation, when the simple act of opening a cupboard is magnified and given a new perspective.” One cannot it seems, love more or love unconditionally without a similar experience of letting go or throwing ourselves away.</p>\r\n</blockquote>\r\n<p>Rumi says, <em>“This is the other gold, that glows in your chest when you love. The enchanted mosque is in there too, where the pointed cry is a candle flame on the altar. The young man becomes a moth who gambles himself and wins. A true human being is not human!

A Ferrara – dove ha sede il Museo Nazionale dell’Ebraismo Italiano e della Shoah (MEIS) – c’è già stato un appuntamento particolarmente significativo ed emozionante: la senatrice Liliana Segre ha incontrato gli studenti ferraresi, la mattina dell’11 gennaio.</span></p>\r\n</div>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: &#39;trebuchet ms&#39;, geneva; font-size: 12pt;\">Già la sola presenza della Segre giustifica la permanenza del Senato e ne riscatta molte insufficienze.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: &#39;trebuchet ms&#39;, geneva; font-size: 12pt;\">Altri eventi si annunciano da qui al 27. Densa è la giornata di lunedì 21 gennaio che, quest’anno, coincide con il Capodanno degli alberi della tradizione ebraica. E gli alberi con la memoria hanno molto a che fare.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: &#39;trebuchet ms&#39;, geneva; font-size: 12pt;\">Alla mattina, al MEIS, Simon Levis Sullam presenta l’antologia da lui curata “1938. Storia, racconto, memoria”. Nel fecondo incontro di storici e scrittori è una prima risposta alla domanda “quando non ci saranno più testimoni diretti – come la straordinaria Liliana Segre – chi potrà raccogliere l’eredità dei sopravvissuti e trasmetterla alle nuove generazioni?”.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: &#39;trebuchet ms&#39;, geneva; font-size: 12pt;\">Sempre al MEIS, al pomeriggio Alessandro Barban e Antonio Carlo Dall’Acqua propongono il loro libro “Etty Hillesum. Osare Dio”. È un ritorno: il libro è stato presentato a Ferrara cinque anni fa. Segue il cammino di una giovane straordinaria, morta ad Auschwitz a 29 anni, capace di compassione anche nei confronti dei propri carnefici.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: &#39;trebuchet ms&#39;, geneva; font-size: 12pt;\">Alla sera, infine, al Ridotto del Teatro comunale un ricordo – con letture e musica – del maestro Vittore Veneziani, al quale è intitolata la locale corale. Veneziani, chiamato da Arturo Toscanini, cessò dall’incarico di direttore del coro della Scala per le leggi razziste.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: &#39;trebuchet ms&#39;, geneva; font-size: 12pt;\">Non meno importanti sono le presentazioni di libri, sempre al MEIS, il giorno successivo. Al mattino Daniel Vogelmann presenta “Piccola autobiografia di mio padre”, Schulim sopravvissuto ad Auschwitz, a differenza della moglie e della figlia. Dire Vogelmann è dire Edizioni Giuntina. A me piace che Daniel si sia risolto a scrivere principalmente per le nipotine.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: &#39;trebuchet ms&#39;, geneva; font-size: 12pt;\">Al pomeriggio Fabio Isman presenta la sua opera “1938, l’Italia razzista. I documenti della persecuzione contro gli ebrei”.&#0160;Con oltre quattrocento provvedimenti di crescente gravità gli ebrei, prima di essere consegnati al carnefici, non potevano possedere una casa, un’impresa, un lavoro e neppure oggetti.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: &#39;trebuchet ms&#39;, geneva; font-size: 12pt;\">È importante la memoria alla quale siamo richiamati in questi tempi di rigurgiti razzisti. Ce lo ricorda Alessandro Galante Garrone. “Non dobbiamo mai dimenticare, quando prendiamo in esame le leggi antisemite del 1938 e le liste degli israeliti che furono burocraticamente compilate in attuazione di quelle leggi e lo zelo dei funzionari, che la suprema infamia del grande olocausto degli ebrei è cominciata in Italia proprio con queste leggi, e con tutto quello che le accompagnò e le seguì”.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: &#39;trebuchet ms&#39;, geneva; font-size: 12pt;\">Anche piantare alberi può servire. Penso al&#0160;Giardino dei Giusti di Gerusalemme ormai saturo di alberi, piantati dagli anni Sessanta ai Novanta, in onore di chi, non ebreo, si è opposto attivamente alla persecuzione. Da allora i nomi che si aggiungono sono incisi in un muro d’onore.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: &#39;trebuchet ms&#39;, geneva; font-size: 12pt;\">Il legame tra albero, memoria e vita è forte.&#0160;Crescono e – anno dopo anno, anello dopo anello – segnano il passare del tempo con la loro presenza vitale. L’altro giorno ho visto con piacere – diventata una splendida pianta – la farnia, che un amico caro ha piantato alla nascita della mia, ora ventunenne, nipote.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: &#39;trebuchet ms&#39;, geneva; font-size: 12pt;\">Così mi dà piacere pensare della coincidenza tra gli incontri del MEIS e il Capodanno degli alberi. Dalla sera di domenica 20 alla sera di lunedì 21 gennaio 2019, è Tu Bishvat, il 15 del mese di Shevat ovvero Rosh Hashana Lailanot, che non è proprio una festa ma un giorno speciale. Interessanti sono la storia, i riti che l’accompagnano, i significati simbolici, il rapporto con le realtà nascoste intravviste dalla mistica. A me piace che sia un giorno che ci ricorda il nostro legame con la natura, l’invito a mangiare frutta e a bere pure vini diversi (purché buoni e fatti bene). Ho una cena con l’amico caro, proprio la sera del 20. È una coincidenza, ma lui direbbe che le coincidenze non esistono.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: &#39;trebuchet ms&#39;, geneva; font-size: 12pt;\">In questa ricorrenza i bambini israeliani piantano alberelli. Spero lo facciano anche altrove, con la serietà che è propria dei bimbi e per l’importanza dell’azione. C’è un detto che lo sottolinea “Se stai piantando un albero e ti dicono che è arrivato il Messia, prima finisci di piantare l’albero e poi vai ad accogliere il Messia”.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: &#39;trebuchet ms&#39;, geneva; font-size: 12pt;\"><span style=\"color: #bf005f;\"><em>scritto da Daniele Lugli</em></span></span></p>\r\n</div>",

A Ferrara – dove ha sede il Museo Nazionale dell’Ebraismo Italiano e della Shoah (MEIS) – c’è già stato un appuntamento particolarmente significativo ed emozionante: la senatrice Liliana Segre ha incontrato gli studenti ferraresi, la mattina dell’11 gennaio.</span></p>\r\n</div>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: &#39;trebuchet ms&#39;, geneva; font-size: 12pt;\">Già la sola presenza della Segre giustifica la permanenza del Senato e ne riscatta molte insufficienze.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: &#39;trebuchet ms&#39;, geneva; font-size: 12pt;\">Altri eventi si annunciano da qui al 27. Densa è la giornata di lunedì 21 gennaio che, quest’anno, coincide con il Capodanno degli alberi della tradizione ebraica. E gli alberi con la memoria hanno molto a che fare.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: &#39;trebuchet ms&#39;, geneva; font-size: 12pt;\">Alla mattina, al MEIS, Simon Levis Sullam presenta l’antologia da lui curata “1938. Storia, racconto, memoria”. Nel fecondo incontro di storici e scrittori è una prima risposta alla domanda “quando non ci saranno più testimoni diretti – come la straordinaria Liliana Segre – chi potrà raccogliere l’eredità dei sopravvissuti e trasmetterla alle nuove generazioni?”.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: &#39;trebuchet ms&#39;, geneva; font-size: 12pt;\">Sempre al MEIS, al pomeriggio Alessandro Barban e Antonio Carlo Dall’Acqua propongono il loro libro “Etty Hillesum. Osare Dio”. È un ritorno: il libro è stato presentato a Ferrara cinque anni fa. Segue il cammino di una giovane straordinaria, morta ad Auschwitz a 29 anni, capace di compassione anche nei confronti dei propri carnefici.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: &#39;trebuchet ms&#39;, geneva; font-size: 12pt;\">Alla sera, infine, al Ridotto del Teatro comunale un ricordo – con letture e musica – del maestro Vittore Veneziani, al quale è intitolata la locale corale. Veneziani, chiamato da Arturo Toscanini, cessò dall’incarico di direttore del coro della Scala per le leggi razziste.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: &#39;trebuchet ms&#39;, geneva; font-size: 12pt;\">Non meno importanti sono le presentazioni di libri, sempre al MEIS, il giorno successivo. Al mattino Daniel Vogelmann presenta “Piccola autobiografia di mio padre”, Schulim sopravvissuto ad Auschwitz, a differenza della moglie e della figlia. Dire Vogelmann è dire Edizioni Giuntina. A me piace che Daniel si sia risolto a scrivere principalmente per le nipotine.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: &#39;trebuchet ms&#39;, geneva; font-size: 12pt;\">Al pomeriggio Fabio Isman presenta la sua opera “1938, l’Italia razzista. I documenti della persecuzione contro gli ebrei”.&#0160;Con oltre quattrocento provvedimenti di crescente gravità gli ebrei, prima di essere consegnati al carnefici, non potevano possedere una casa, un’impresa, un lavoro e neppure oggetti.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: &#39;trebuchet ms&#39;, geneva; font-size: 12pt;\">È importante la memoria alla quale siamo richiamati in questi tempi di rigurgiti razzisti. Ce lo ricorda Alessandro Galante Garrone. “Non dobbiamo mai dimenticare, quando prendiamo in esame le leggi antisemite del 1938 e le liste degli israeliti che furono burocraticamente compilate in attuazione di quelle leggi e lo zelo dei funzionari, che la suprema infamia del grande olocausto degli ebrei è cominciata in Italia proprio con queste leggi, e con tutto quello che le accompagnò e le seguì”.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: &#39;trebuchet ms&#39;, geneva; font-size: 12pt;\">Anche piantare alberi può servire. Penso al&#0160;Giardino dei Giusti di Gerusalemme ormai saturo di alberi, piantati dagli anni Sessanta ai Novanta, in onore di chi, non ebreo, si è opposto attivamente alla persecuzione. Da allora i nomi che si aggiungono sono incisi in un muro d’onore.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: &#39;trebuchet ms&#39;, geneva; font-size: 12pt;\">Il legame tra albero, memoria e vita è forte.&#0160;Crescono e – anno dopo anno, anello dopo anello – segnano il passare del tempo con la loro presenza vitale. L’altro giorno ho visto con piacere – diventata una splendida pianta – la farnia, che un amico caro ha piantato alla nascita della mia, ora ventunenne, nipote.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: &#39;trebuchet ms&#39;, geneva; font-size: 12pt;\">Così mi dà piacere pensare della coincidenza tra gli incontri del MEIS e il Capodanno degli alberi. Dalla sera di domenica 20 alla sera di lunedì 21 gennaio 2019, è Tu Bishvat, il 15 del mese di Shevat ovvero Rosh Hashana Lailanot, che non è proprio una festa ma un giorno speciale. Interessanti sono la storia, i riti che l’accompagnano, i significati simbolici, il rapporto con le realtà nascoste intravviste dalla mistica. A me piace che sia un giorno che ci ricorda il nostro legame con la natura, l’invito a mangiare frutta e a bere pure vini diversi (purché buoni e fatti bene). Ho una cena con l’amico caro, proprio la sera del 20. È una coincidenza, ma lui direbbe che le coincidenze non esistono.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: &#39;trebuchet ms&#39;, geneva; font-size: 12pt;\">In questa ricorrenza i bambini israeliani piantano alberelli. Spero lo facciano anche altrove, con la serietà che è propria dei bimbi e per l’importanza dell’azione. C’è un detto che lo sottolinea “Se stai piantando un albero e ti dicono che è arrivato il Messia, prima finisci di piantare l’albero e poi vai ad accogliere il Messia”.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: &#39;trebuchet ms&#39;, geneva; font-size: 12pt;\"><span style=\"color: #bf005f;\"><em>scritto da Daniele Lugli</em></span></span></p>\r\n</div>",
