Just my way of getting through the day. I did my first ever session of Yin Yoga today. Maybe all that positive energy has brought out the Big Yin in me.

In support of this, I've noted a very strong resemblance between the complaints of a professor friend of mine (who has never been treated for cancer) and some cancer patients being treated with chemotherapy. They both complain of memory lapses, and the latter, of course, attribute them to the chemotherapy poisons they need to take. But what is the actual similarity? They're all getting older, and they're all worried about losing cognitive function, and monitoring themselves.

The correlations do not prove causation.
This is the problem with almost all of the studies reported in the press.

They say you hang on to the old memories last. Unless you grew up in the 60s, when you probably didn't remember them anyways.

A video of his performance of Steven Walters' "The Remember Song" was placed on YouTube and to date (March 2010) it has received over 4 million plays. Writing on his website, Rush said "I've been waiting 45 years to be an overnight sensation, and it's finally happened!
