Preventing Breast Cancer
A few months ago, my daughter Zsia told me about her childhood friend, still very close to her, who had chosen to have a double mastectomy, after finding out she had an 85% chance of getting breast cancer, as it runs her the family. Her sister had made the same choice. At the time it seemed a bit radical to me, but now I am learning that many women are making that choice when breast cancer runs in the family and tests reveal a high probability for the disease. I admire their brave decisions, but it leaves me with one thought on the soul level - if they are destined for cancer, it will show up elsewhere, as is programmed. FYI - breast cancer does not run in my family. As far as aesthetics, breasts can be reconstructed by a good plastic surgeon.

Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie has undergone a double mastectomy to reduce her chances of getting breast cancer. The 37-year-old mother of six has explained her reasons for having the surgery in the New York Times. She said her doctors estimated she had an 87% risk of breast cancer and a 50% risk of ovarian cancer. "I decided to be proactive and to minimize the risk as much I could," she wrote.
Dr. Joyce Brothers
Most of you will not remember Dr. Joyce Brothers, but in my days of studying Psychology at NYU, she was someone I aspired to be - the Brooklyn, Jewish, female therapist on TV, publishing her columns, and giving advice to the world to make a difference. My destiny would take me in a different direction as to how to achieve the same goals, but she was a role model back in the day.

In Dan Brown's 'Inferno,' numeric riddles and controversial science mix MSNBC - May 14, 2013
Dan Brown's Inferno, the latest thriller from the author of "The Da Vinci Code," is another globe-trotting, world-saving adventure - and a chance for readers to ponder a new set of mathematical and scientific puzzles. In "The Da Vinci Code," Robert Langdon, the world's best-known fictional symbologist, follows a trail that highlights a controversial reading of the relationship between Jesus and Mary Magdalene. In "Angels and Demons," an antimatter bomb from Europe's CERN research center plays a key part in the plot. In "The Lost Symbol," Langdon teams up with a researcher in noetic science, which tackles woo-woo subjects like ESP and vibrational energies. All three thrillers are seasoned with a healthy dose of secret codes.
I often wonder what would happen if the Great Pyramid on the Giza plateau was destroyed ... and why it has survived since the beginning ... or maybe it hasn't and has just been rebooted into the program, time and time again. Today, I decided that nothing on this planet has anything to do with the close of the hologram - they are all just symbols - as in a Dan Brown encoded novel - that allow consciousness at this level to remember and return. I was never into the Mayan Mix - but many readers are and would be shattered at the very thought of a major pyramid in Belize being destroyed. It's all just 3D ... let it go.

A construction company has essentially destroyed one of Belize's largest Mayan pyramids with backhoes and bulldozers to extract rock for a road-building project.

Officials in Belize say a construction company has destroyed one of the country's largest Mayan pyramids. Head of the Belizean Institute of Archaeology Jaime Awe said the Noh Mul temple was leveled by a road-building company seeking gravel for road filler. The Mayan temple dates back to pre-Columbian times and is estimated to be 2,300 year old. Only a small core of the pyramid was left standing. Police said they were investigating the incident. Archaeologists said this was not the first incident of its kind.
