    "Relationship Tuesday" Why Do Women Go Out With Deadbeat Losers?

    in Romance

    MEN If you give them an inch, they’ll take a mile. But, if you put us on a leash, they’ll gnaw it off and go even more crazy once there free.  There’s a fine balance between loving your man and smothering your man. There are countless posts online where women complain about their deadbeat boyfriends for never paying for anything, never buying them gifts, always playing video games all day long while still living at home in their parents basement, and never holding on to a job for more than a year to save their lives. Yet, these women still latch on, hoping they’ll one day change their man for the better.


    Settling for a deadbeat loser is like settling for a job you hate. There are way too many people who hate their jobs and keep on doing them, just like there are way too many women who settle for men who treat them poorly. What is it about non-ideal situations which makes us keep carrying on, doing nothing to change? 

    My theory is that in the beginning, most women don’t know the guy is a deadbeat loser. He probably is reasonably attractive and tells a good story about his current situation and his ambitions. Obviously, he will be on his best behavior during the wooing process. It might take one week, or it might take many months, but until a consummation is made, guys can be very charming! By the time a woman hooks up with the guy, only afterward will she see his true colors.

    Patients and Physicians Network about Kidney Cancer

    in Health

    The annual Kidney Cancer Symposium was held this year in Miami, Florida.  It was chaired by Dr. Toni Choueiri of Dana-Farber/Harvard Cancer Institute in Boston, and contained a wealth of information for physicians, both urologists and oncologists dealing with kidney cancer.

    This year for the first time in many years more patients and patient advocates were included in the mix.  In the past Joyce has been one of 4-5 patients invited to help report the meeting, under the general editorship of Mike Lawing.  This year, in part to celebrate the 25th anniversary oCaleb f the founding of KCA by a kidney cancer patient, more patients were invited to attend, including two from outside the United States: Caleb from Nigeria and Juanita Ruiz from Peru.

    Billy Foster, a long-time KCA supporter and jazz musician, was on hand to provide wonderful music for the reception.  He has given us permission to broadcast an interview he recorded with Caleb Egwuenu, founder and president of Stand Up to Cancer Naija, http://www.su2c9ja.org  In Nigeria many people still believe that cancer is "juju" or some harmful magical power inflicted by someone else, or as a result of something you did wrong.  The biggest challenge to managing any cancer is that diagnoses are usually after the cancer is already advanced to a late stage.  For Nigeria as for most developing countries, the management of late stage cancer is beyond the skills and budgets of the health care systems.  Their only hope of managing cancer is to find it at early stages.
