Dec 19, 2011. So
glad that someone reported dead is alive, which is what happened today
with a rock star named Jon Bon Jovi. That also happened in the late
19th century, when Alfred Nobel read his own obituary and decided it
wasn't memorable enough. So he left his fortune, about $4.5million, to
give prizes to the best in 5 categories,
which were first awarded in 1901. The Nobel Prize is the world's richest prize. You can listen to an audio recording
of me talking about Nobel Prizes awarded for diabetes on
drsusanna.org/mjotatalks.html. Listen to a 30-minute MJoTA audio on Nobel Prizes awarded for diabetes research, click here.

Nov 29, 2011. Manhattan.
District Attorney's office held a press conference for African media.
Most African media did not bother to show. The DA did a terrific job
bringing all kinds of experts on domestic violence and most the seats
were empty. Bottom line, if you are or know a victim of domestic
violence without papers, report it and no-one will try to deport anyone,
in fact, they will help you get papers and housing. And if the perp is a
first-time offender, he won't have to be criminally charged, maybe as a
misdemeanor. Unless he stabs you or shoots you or shoves your head down
the toilet or throws you out a window or something: then he's a
criminal and you may not be around to tell anyone. Three articles to
tell you what to do, and the high cost of domestic violence, click on
Daily Updates for all 3, click here; or for each article separately, click here, here and here.
Nov 28, 2011. MJoTA
Publisher listened again to the Gilead HIV/AIDS educator talk about the
need to prevent HIV infection in Camden at a Mosque. MJoTA was struck,
yet again, at the lack of warning against oral sex; the trend that has
been reported to the Publisher is that African men with multiple sexual
partners in the United States either do not use condoms, or only use
condoms after oral sex. The data are sparse, but MJoTA believes they are
there: condom use will not over-ride infections transmitted through
oral sex. Click here for 3 small articles on HIV/AIDS.

Nov 12, 2011. At first, these tips from New Jersey's Dale Carnegie Training may seem
quaint, entirely irrelevant to African communities, and only relevant anywhere
when the economy is booming and employees have a choice about where they can
work. However, they are exceedingly relevant, because national governments in Nigeria, Kenya,
are not following the basic principles of keeping their health employees happy, click here for article.
Nov 11, 2011. Brain
disorders affecting children and adults arise because their heads have
