It seems like we are getting closer to solving the riddle of this disease.
Mitochondria in Brain May Be Source of Alzheimer's

Alzheimer's disease, a severely debilitating and ultimately fatal brain disorder, affects millions worldwide. To date, clinical efforts to find a cure or adequate treatment have met with dispiriting failure.

It all depends on how one looks at a problem. What did Michelangelo see when he looked at a block of marble? All of the answers are in front of us. It just depends on what we can envision.

The Highlands of Scotland- #MyTravelStory

Two weeks of camping solo in the Scottish Highlands in November where it rained every day. Some might call it crazy, I call it fun!

Most people seem to want warm beaches and clear skies for their travels and vacations. I seek out the other side and look for lonely wild places in the cold.

To that end, I planned a trip for the late fall of 2016 to travel to Scotland to camp, explore and photograph the Highlands. I knew it would be windy, rainy, and many places would already be shut for the season. The temps would likely never get above 45 degrees F. I decided to camp and thought it sounded like a great adventure. My family and friends thought I was crazy. Not a single person wanted to go with me. Undeterred, I went alone and got my first stamp in my passport.

Being a landscape and nightscape photographer, I wanted to see the wild and lonely landscape of the NW Highlands. Cites, nightlife, etc are nothing that really interest me, so I bypassed them and spent two weeks exploring just four areas: The Isle of Skye, Torridon, Assynt, and Glencoe. I hoped have around three days in each area would give me time to explore and photograph them.

I rented a car and headed north. It is an eerie feeling the first time you get in a right hand drive car like they use in the UK and drive on the left hand side of the road. Having a manual transmission makes it even funner since you are shifting with your left hand. I kept saying "stay left" to myself and after a few minutes got along fine.

In the Highlands I would set up camp with my little one man tent and then go out to explore an area. I was hoping for epic sunrises, nights with the Milky Way and aurora shining, and great light. I saw the stars once in two weeks. It rained every day. It was windy.

I loved it!

I hiked in the lonely mountain country of Torridon. I was out photographing the ruins of a haunted in castle in the rain, at night on Halloween. I stood by a waterfall in Glencoe watching a sunrise. I ate porridge for breakfast every day. It was everything I hoped for in a trip.

This image is a prime example of Scotland. Wind, rain and light on the Quairiang. I was up and out early getting to this spot in the rain and 40 mph wind. There was nothing that looked like a sunrise happening. I started hiking in wind and rain when suddenly the clouds parted and this amazing light swept over the land. For just a few minutes the Quairaing was lit by amazing light. Then just as quickly as it started, it ended. The clouds closed back up and it was windy and rainy the rest of the day.

This was very typical of the days there. It was two weeks I will never forget and in fact I am already planning my return trip. Next time in February when the days will be shorter, it will be colder, and there will be snow on the peaks.

It would be funny except that it isn't.

While only residents over 55 were surveyed, you can be certain that property taxes are the number one concern of most age groups.

This article is a window into the politics of nutrition and highlights research and writings of the harmful effects of sugar in our diet. I recommend the article as well as the books and articles it references. Although the article focuses on heart disease and weight, it could have directed readers to the increase in autoimmune diseases and dementia as well. The corrosive effect of sugar harms the brain as much as the heart.
