Ken Burns and Dr. Sid Mukherjee explain the history and future of immunotherapy. http://yhoo.it/1OKlJ8x #CancerFilm  
The idea that we could use our bodies to fight cancer is nothing new. Dr. Siddhartha Mukherjee explains, “We think of science as a kind of linear narrative. But of course it’s a circular narrative as well. You look at the past to figure out, ‘Well, wait a second, maybe that thing that really died an early death could be recovered and rejuvenated.’ And now it’s an amazingly important cancer medicine. That’s what makes it a detective story.”

Here's what we learned making ‪#‎CancerFilm‬: http://yhoo.it/1MaLG2a
Today, about 60 percent of women diagnosed with early-stage breast cancer choose to undergo lumpectomy surgery followed by radiation as their course of treatment.

Regarding your bit on the Federal Reserve.  It is NOT a government agency.  It is a privately owned bank which loans $ to the government and charges interest.  That is why we are a debt driven country unlike the BRICS nations, (which is just about every country now) which is an asset driven economy.  I'm surprised that your journalism didn't include examination of this before you fell for their story.

Ken Burns & Dr. Siddhartha Mukherjee joined me to discuss the story behind #CancerFilm: The Emperor of All Maladies.
All of us know someone who has been affected by cancer. In 1997, I had a great career, a wonderful husband and two beautiful young daughters, who were 5 and 1. In an instant, everything changed. That’s what cancer does, it changes everything in an instant.

There is an all natural drink that kills cancer but USA doesn't''t want to use it here in USA because they can't make billions on it. Chemotherapy does nothing bit extend life for a short while and also put them through torcher and get weaker then die.

In Richmond, California (a city of 100,000) the statistics indicate that new policies instituted by Police Chief Chris Magnus are significantly reducing crime. Homicides are down from 47 in 2007 to just 11 last year. http://yhoo.it/1OraWjp

#ICYMI: Here's what Frank Bruni has to say about surviving college admissions madness: http://yhoo.it/1BulmEL
High anxiety. It’s that time of year when many high school seniors find out where they may be spending the next four years. Some will be celebrating the fact that they are “the chosen,” while others will be bitterly disappointed. The bad news used to be in a telltale thin envelope. Today rejection is just a mouse click away. Now, as it was then, it’s a difficult pill to swallow. New York Times op-ed columnist Frank Bruni decided enough was enough...

Just in case you need a refresher: here's what you should know about the #Fed's history and mandate. http://yhoo.it/1NnOR3E 
Chair Janet Yellen grabbed everyone’s attention this year when she implied that the Federal Reserve, aka the Fed, may raise the interest rates for the first time in six years. And the markets have been responding ever since, once again proving that the Fed holds a lot of the cards when it comes to the U.S. economy.

Sidney Farber changed how people saw the disease by putting a face to the word cancer.: http://yhoo.it/1GnTrwR #CancerFilm 
The idea seemed unthinkable: Inject children who are already gravely ill with a potent poison in an attempt to make them better. In 1947, a leukemia diagnosis was tantamount to a death sentence. It could kill a healthy child in just a few months.
