  1. I just finished reading On the Move A Life by Oliver Sacks and left mesmerized and sad, in some way, realizing the fact that Oliver is no longer..it was my first read book of Dr Sacks. I kept googling to read more about him since then and came to read your eulogy for Dr Sacks..and touched by it. It almost felt like I was reading my own feelings for Dr Sacks.. Thanks for the eulogy.


  2. I have checked your site and i’ve found some duplicate content, that’s why you don’t rank high in google’s search results, but there is a tool that can help you to create 100% unique articles, search for: SSundee advices unlimited content
    for your blog


  3. Ordered ‘Human Errors’ on reading your eSkeptic column last week. Enthralling, but I do wonder if the arithmetical errors on p98 have been picked up yet? For example, 3000 times the length of a human is nearer 6km than 30km.


  4. from San Diego presentation:
    anything to learn from astronauts’ & cosmonauts’ health issues: bones for example? adaptation to EMF radiation here on Earth?; how significant was the recent finding about the lymph dump from our brains while we sleep?; Advanced Glycation Endproducts discussed in Peter Bales, MD’s book Osteoarthritis, the issue of changing eating habits (Standard American Diet); good book: Dr. Tom Farley, MD: Saving Gotham (sugar, smoking, transfats)


  5. Can’t find your email so trying to communicate this way –
    Human errors, hardcover, p. 143 – “…if it doesn’t, the foreigner is seen as a big deal” – surely you meant “NO big deal”
