…so the LeBron/Jordan Crawford video is finally here.  I really think that trying to hide it made it a bigger deal than it would have been.  All the same though, dude bashed on him.

Hahaha @ “He’s gonna be famous!  ..what’s his name?”

Tonight (Saturday) was pretty low key.. I babysat my favorite 2-year-old (who lives down the block).. so we jumped on his trampoline, ate some dinner, played with blocks, rough-housed, and watched some Sesame Street.  By the way, the current “Gordon” on that show sounds a whole lot like a mellow Samuel L.  Just an observation.

Goodnight world.. I’m going to crash until my pillow gets home. 🙂

Can we neutralize the genetic source of myotonic Muscular Dystrophy?

Filed under: Ability Spectrum, Life — Tags: , , , — marimcfly @ 4:09 pm

Cruising through my daily blogs.. I stumbled upon this incredible article.  This is obviously just the beginning and still in testing stages, but wowww what a breakthrough!  I’m inspired. 🙂

Researchers at the University of Rochester Medical Center have found a way to block the genetic flaw at the heart of a common form of muscular dystrophy. The results of the study, which were published today in the journal Science, could pave the way for new therapies that essentially reverse the symptoms of the disease.

The researchers used a synthetic molecule to break up deposits of toxic genetic material and re-establish the cellular activity that is disrupted by the disease. Because scientists believe that potentially all of the symptoms of myotonic dystrophy — the most common form of muscular dystrophy in adults — flow from this single genetic flaw, neutralizing it could potentially restore muscle function in people with the disease.

This video is about 7 months old, but I just came across it for the first time.. It made me feel grateful for hip hop and inspired by how powerful/global it can be.  That said.. let’s use it to speak up and make some positive changes in this world!

T-Mac for Darfur

Filed under: Hoops, Life — Tags: , , , , , — marimcfly @ 9:39 pm

So it looks like Trevor Ariza will take jersey #1.. and T-Mac is switching to #3.  Here’s the info, swiped from insidehoops.  Shouts to A.D. for the link!

The Houston Rockets today announced that guard/forward Tracy McGrady will be switching to jersey #3 for the upcoming 2009-10 campaign. Recently signed guard/forward Trevor Ariza will wear jersey #1 with the Rockets.

McGrady, who also wore the #3 in high school, will make the switch to bring attention to his “Darfur Dream Team” humanitarian project and the “3 Points” documentary that chronicles his journey to the refugee camps in Chad, Africa during the summer of 2007. McGrady says his visit to Chad was life changing and having the privilege to have freedom and peace in his life is something he will never take for granted. By wearing #3, he honors those who are forced to live without that freedom and peace. The “3 Points” documentary directed by Josh Rothstein is a reference to the goals of peace, protection and punishment with regards to the horrific atrocities suffered in the Darfur region of the Sudan. The documentary is scheduled for nationwide screenings beginning this fall.

On Jan. 3, 2008, McGrady took part in a special assembly at his alma mater, Auburndale High School (Auburndale, FL), to announce his participation in the “Darfur Dream Team” humanitarian project. McGrady made a $75,000 donation that will be used to renovate and build a school in the Djabal Camp in Eastern Chad. As part of this program, McGrady named Auburndale High School as a sister school to the one being built in Chad. The money raised will also help train teachers, as well as provide a year’s worth of school materials, clothing and other essentials for students. For more detailed information, please visit darfurdreamteam.org.

Thanks to TiRon, my latest obsession is FOX’s show “Lie To Me.”

The show is excellent.. and Monica Raymund is beautiful.  Damn.

I mean.. it got me a feature in iGNITE Mag‘s blog.  From here, the possibilities are endless!  Haha.  Shouts to my lil sis and all the great work coming from iGNITE Mag.

The internet: It’s not just for rappers anymore. 🙂

This week we have Mariko Yamazaki from the University of Southern California. I recently met up with here to talk about her work in the healthcare industry at the Brotman Medical Center in Culver City, CA (yes, the hospital that Michael Jackson gave 1.5 million dollars to for the Michael Jackson Burn Unit.) Check out what she had to say…
