    To avoid criticism, do nothing, say nothing, be nothing.

    Music provides one of the clearest examples of a much deeper relation between mathematics and human experience.

    1. What's going on with cancer cells that makes them immortal (no cell apoptosis)? Turns out, it's a mutated enzyme called Hexokinase II. There's a compound called cytochrome c that signals cell death, but in cancer cells, the hexokinase II forms a complex with VDAC (a protein called voltage anion channel) that blocks the release of cytochrome c.

    2. A biochemist at Johns Hopkins University has found a cure for cancer 10 plus years ago. Dr. Young Ko was looking for an inhibitor for hexokinase II and succeeded when she tried 2-bromopyruvate (3BP). This compound has a 100% cure rate when tested on rabbits, mice, and one human. Unfortunately, a fellow researcher (the Vice Dean, no less) at Johns Hopkins tried to steal her work (allegedly) and forced her out of her position by requesting that she get a psychiatric evaluation. She's now trying to raise the $3 million necessary to do a clinical trial of 20 cancer patients. Don't hold your breath.

    TMZ is reporting that Vil Kilmer has a tumor of the throat. I don't know the survival rate for throat cancers; hope he pulls through. If I were him, I'd seek out Dr. Ko and find a doctor who's willing to administer 3BP.

    Marty Feldman had buggy eyes due to Graves Disease, an autoimmune hyperthyroid condition. George Bush, Sr. and Missy Elliot have the same condition.

    First two seasons of The Wonder Years are out on DVD and they managed to secure all the music rights for season 1. I stopped watching that show after Season 2 since I found Fred Savage's acting a little irritating, but it is one of the better TV shows from the late 80s.

    The consensus theory on the cause of cancer is very likely wrong. The primary cause of cancer is not DNA mutations but a metabolism problem in the mitochondria. Also, death rates from cancer today are the same as they were back in 1950.
