Remembering Friends


Still feeling tired but doing well. Everything seems rushed! At least it is "spring break" for school. Not for me, but at least for school.

Carta Espiritual y mas!

I ordered Esteban Jordan's new Carta Espiritual! Hope it gets here soon. And the cover art is great!!!

My family and other Raza Unida members volunteered for the KUNM fund raising drive last night. It was lots of fun. The best part was the challenge to LRU members and Esteban Jordan fans. And the short interview was great.

Now to stretch back out from all of the sitting this weekend...

Well, after some vehicle problems, my daughter and I made it home this morning. It was great to see my sisters and it is awesome to have my 'Jita home.

Besides towing I'm going to figure out how much I can help with a radiator.

I feel bad about leaving someone behind, but my daughter has a pre-natal appointment today. That was a sucky choice.

Keep Lefting!

March 12, 2010

When I worked for the Public Health Division I had a meeting with my supervisor. We were looking for a direction for my work in health promotion. We agreed that I should try and become an "urban health expert."

I just decided on working toward my thesis being something in Urban Health for New Mexico. More details will come as I figure it out.

Well, the Facebook conversation on health and health care continues.

I know this is late, but I think it still has a great deal of meaning. In September a study was released saying that 45,000 Americans die each year from lack of health insurance.

I'm thinking of adding this to my personal email signature:

If something killed 45,000 Americans each year would you do something about it?

One American dies every 12 minutes from lack of health insurance!

I think it relates to the attitude that politicians take toward their own donors!!

On a positive note, I've been released to workout with up to 10 pounds....

Well I accidentally started a good conversation about health care on Facebook. The funny part is that the quote was about health. We are so stuck on medical services that we can't go to far from that collectively.

I think it will take a great deal of work to get a critical mass of people to move from health being equal to medical services (which is really treating you after already sick). At some point we'll be able to discuss health in and of itself. The same thing happens with crime. You talk about reducing crime, or violence, and people start talking about cops. That's like saying that chemotherapy prevents cancer...

Oh well, gotta keep trying. Speaking of "medical services" the acupuncture is helping out a great deal. It is more intensive than getting some pain killers but still good. And it comes out to be near as expensive as specialist co-pays. But I'll be talking with some folks soon about a community acupuncture clinic.

The best and funniest part is that I was released to lift weights - 10 pounds max! The woman acupuncturist told the male "I can lift ten pounds!" He stuck to his guns and I'll cooperate. It will be nice to lift at all.

Just waiting for my code for the EPC gym.
