Visions of hope



More than half of Americans are currently living with at least one chronic disease and nearly a third of patients are managing two or more of these conditions. Patients often lack community support and proper counseling to care for their illness. Growing evidence indicates that spiritual practices enhance personal resilience even under challenging circumstances. 

My book, "Visions of Hope," is published by Wipf and Stock Publishers. The manuscript recognizes the surprising parallels between the long struggle of chronic disease and Jesus’ last torturous hours. It uses the ‘Stations of the Cross’ as a symbolic framework in the counseling of patients. Combining the wisdom of the Bible (Stations) with modern considerations of positive psychology gives a practical guide map for coping and facing the many trying facets of chronic disease. The thought-provoking text leads the reader through the trials of despair by giving meaning to suffering and assigning value to social connections. The book does not shy away from discussing the most difficult questions the reader might face, including the need to face death and what happens after we die. Original illustrations, religious and spiritual texts bring the content into a sharper focus for the reader in an aesthetically pleasing and meaningful volume.

Science or fiction? Super-conduction of both electricity and energy

An immense amount of energy is lost in power lines and machinery every year. There is a fierce worldwide competition to find more efficient energy and electricity transport. 

Bose-Einstein condensation (BEC) is a superfluid state in which atoms or particles flow without friction. The phenomenon was predicted nearly a hundred years ago by Albert Einstein and Satyendra Nath Bose. Bose-Einstein condensation was first produced from rubidium atoms in 1995 on temperatures near absolute zero. Recently its existence has been found at a much warmer temperature (still way too cold for your sandwich). The finding can open new possibilities for high-temperature superconductivity (to transport energy without loss).

Exciton condensate is similar to Bose-Einstein condensate, but it conducts energy instead with nearly zero loss. To generate both states in the same material would revolutionize many industries. Theoretically, at least, there is a condition when both beneficial states exist together. The combination of superconductivity and exciton condensates would be useful in lots of applications, such as electronics, spintronics, quantum computing. Read more: phys.org

Can overdiagnosis of cancer become a problem?


Image result for cancer cells images


Cancer is the leading cause of death across the globe. For years now, researchers have led meticulous studies focused on how to stop this deadly disease in its tracks. An estimated 1 in 2 people now receive a cancer diagnosis at some point in their lives and with that comes overdiagnosis, which can reach up to 11,000 cancers in women and 18,000 cancers in men each year. Cancer overdiagnosis can negatively impact a person’s mental health and cause them to undergo harsh treatments when they may not be necessary.

Most overdiagnoses occur during routine procedures that detect cancers that would otherwise remain undetected. In addition, early detection of abnormal cells could also be attributed to overdiagnosis. Many people would argue that overdiagnosis is better than underdiagnosis, and that screening has already been at the heart of saving many people’s lives.

There are many treatments available to treat the cancers and many people are able to have long, healthy lives when they use maintenance therapy to manage these types of cancer. It is important to note that when a person receives a treatment harsher than is necessary for their type of cancer, a doctor has misdiagnosed cancer, not overdiagnosed it. Cancer screenings nevertheless save lives, and ultimately, the earlier they detect cancer, the higher the chance of survival and the lower the chance of recurrence.

The evidence for this is irrefutable.
