I Am No Longer Embarrassed over My Smile

meWhen I was younger, my mom was busy raising me and my three younger brothers on her own. She was working two jobs at any given time, and sometimes even three. She was so busy trying to keep us in a home that she did miss out on a few things like teaching us about proper oral hygiene. I do not hold that against her at all, but I knew that I was going to need to see a cosmetic dentist in Greenwood Village if I wanted to have a nice smile.
I was really embarrassed over my smile because my teeth were crooked and stained. I was brushing them two to three times a day once I realized I was in danger of maybe losing some of them, and I also used a rinse and floss. While that routine did save my teeth, it was too little too late … Read More

ALS causing gene discovered
Using a new sequencing method, researchers have discovered a gene that appears to cause some instances of familial amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).
A team of researchers led by scientists from Johns Hopkins and the National Institutes of Health Using make the discovery, which may lead to novel ways to treat the more common form of this fatal neurodegenerative disease.
Researchers don’t know exactly what causes ALS, which destroys the motor neurons that control the movement of all the body’s muscles, including those that control breathing.
However, studies into the familial form of the disease, which affects 5 percent to 10 percent of those diagnosed with the disease, could shed some light on why motor neurons die in all types of ALS, said study leader Bryan J. Traynor of

David & Goliath (Explored)

Due to health issues and my new job I wasn’t very active here on flickr lately. But finally found some time within my new job to head out for shooting winter trees. Just have to take care about copyright things now. I am the author of the image, but the copyright belongs to the media workshop I am working for 😉

These two trees sitting on top of a small hill I saw the first time back in last summer and was sure they will suit very well into a winter scenery. Winter hit us very late but then very hard with temps below -15C this year after a too warm start in january. I shoot these trees from several places, but this images seems to be the best from my view.

Oh and finally I had the chance to check out my new 5D MKII – what a difference … Read More
