Alzheimer's May Soon Be Detected With A Simple Eye Exam

You go in to your eye doctor for your yearly exam. While you’re getting the air puffed into your eye and the light shined into the back of your brain, the doctor notices something. The retina is a little off. It’s not macular degeneration or general eye deterioration. She detects the early signs of Alzheimer’s. (read more at Geek)

'Big Data' Study Discovers Earliest Sign of Alzheimer's Development

Participating in a clinical trial or study helps medical researchers find new ways to treat and prevent Alzheimer's and other diseases, and could help future generations lead healthier lives. Here are some listings:

CONNECT~This study will determine the safety and efficacy of the experimental drug AZD0530 (saracatinib) in older adults with mild Alzheimer's disease. Researchers want to know if the drug can slow disease progression by inhibiting the protein Fyn kinase. Learn more...

A4~This study will test whether an investigational drug, solanezumab, can slow the progression of memory problems associated with amyloid, a protein that forms plaques in the brains of people with Alzheimer disease. Participants who have normal thinking and memory function but may be at risk for developing Alzheimer's dementia are invited to participate. All volunteers will undergo a positron emission tomography (PET) scan to be determine their brain amyloid levels. Learn more...

GeneMatch~The GeneMatch program, part of the Alzheimer's Prevention Registry, aims to identify people interested in participating in research studies or clinical trials based in part on their genetic background. GeneMatch will collect genetic information from participants which may be used to match them to studies. Participants are under no obligation to pursue these study opportunities. Learn more..

SNIFF~This Phase II/III clinical trial will examine whether a type of insulin, when administered as a nasal spray, improves memory in adults with a mild cognitive impairment or Alzheimer’s disease. The study will also provide evidence about how intranasal insulin works in the body. Learn more...

Tau PET Imaging~This study will evaluate a new radioactive compound, [18F]T807, used in positron emission tomography (PET) scans to identify tau tangles, a protein in the brain that is associated with Alzheimer's disease. Learn more...

Kimberley Motley

Sharing cases from her international legal practice, Kimberley Motley, an American litigator practicing in Afghanistan, shows how a country's own laws can bring both justice and "justness."

Kimberley Motley practices in the U.S., Afghanistan, Dubai and the International Criminal Courts. After spending five years as a public defender in her native Milwaukee, Motley headed to Afghanistan to join a legal education program run by the U.S. State Department. She noticed Westerners stranded in Afghan prisons without representation, and started defending them.

Today, Motley is the only Western litigator in Kabul, and one of the most effective defense attorneys in Afghanistan. Her practice, which reports a 90 percent success rate, often represents non-Afghan defendants as well as pro-bono human rights cases.

Golden Windows ~ Poetry Soup

A young shepherd living near the hill,
taking his flocks everyday to drumlin.
He wonders deeply while sitting upon the rocks,
looking at afar house while feeding his flocks.

The shepherd's desire is fantasy of afar home,
that has golden windows behind hedge of anemone.
He wonders if the windows of the house are gold
how other appurtenance of the house are mould?

He starts his journey to there, finally after some time,
going along the way across the hill while biting a loaf of naan.
When arrives, he finds the house in fully collapsed condition.
There are no golden windows but a poor crumbled house.

He looks to his own house down the drumlin
surprised by the heavenliness of his own dwelling
The sun was casting back on his house's stained windows
just like the sparkling on the gold as the sun downs

Recipe Of The Week:

Grilled Chicken and Polenta with Nectarine-Blackberry Salsa

1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon canola oil, divided
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
3/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1 16- to 18-ounce tube prepared plain polenta
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast, trimmed
2 nectarines, halved and pitted
1 pint blackberries, coarsely chopped
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
1 tablespoon lime juice
Hot sauce, to taste

Preheat grill to medium-high.

Combine 1 tablespoon oil, cumin, 3/4 teaspoon salt and pepper in a small bowl. Rub 1 teaspoon of the mixture all over polenta. Rub the rest into both sides of chicken. Cut the polenta crosswise into 8 slices. Rub the cut sides of nectarine halves with the remaining 1 teaspoon oil.

Oil the grill rack (see Tip). Place the chicken, polenta slices and nectarines on the grill. Grill the polenta until hot and slightly charred, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Transfer to a clean plate; tent with foil to keep warm. Grill the nectarines, turning occasionally, until tender, 6 to 8 minutes total. Grill the chicken, until cooked through and no longer pink in the middle, 6 to 8 minutes per side. Transfer the chicken and nectarines to a cutting board. Coarsely chop the nectarines. Let the chicken rest for 5 minutes, then thinly slice.

While the chicken rests, combine the chopped nectarines, blackberries, cilantro, lime juice, hot sauce and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt in a medium bowl. Layer the polenta, chicken and fruit salsa on 4 plates and serve.

Tip: To oil the grill rack: Oil a folded paper towel, hold it with tongs and rub it over the rack. (Don't use cooking spray on a hot grill.)
