Afrezza – One Diabetics Rocky Road to Better Control

In my last post, I talked about what Afrezza is, my Type 1 diabetes background, and what Afrezza has done for me in a very short time. My trip to using Afrezza was a rocky road, however. I had done plenty of research on inhaled…

Afrezza – a Trip to a Healthier Diabetic

What is Afrezza? In short, it is an inhaled insulin created by MannKind Corporation, based on Technosphere technology, and until recently, marketed and distributed by Sanofi. If you want the short story and some rumors surrounding the breakup of Sanofi and MannKind, The Motley Fool has…

Republican caucus

Broken Minnesota Republican Caucus Process

I am taking a brief break from health and nutrition issues for a comment on the broken Republican caucus process, and how embarrassing it is to have a new immigrant see how the Republican caucus process was run in Minnesota tonight. The following is the reason…

Ukraine is at it Again

Interesting. Ukraine’s president has announced that the UAE will sell defensive weapons to Ukraine. Problem is, Poroshenko seems “mistaken” about the deal, where the UAE says no arms sales will be considered. Poroshenko seems determined to stage his own propaganda in his country. Watching Ukrainian news a couple…

Ukraine: Victory Day Blemished

May 9 is Victory Day in the former Soviet states. It is the day that Hitler’s forces surrendered to the Soviet Union in 1945. The day is celebrated by Russia and the former Soviet states, since 1946. It is the greatest patriotic holiday in their culture, and WW2…

Ukraine: More Western Hypocrisy

The propaganda machine is running at full speed on Ukraine, and I am not speaking about Russia. I just read this story about how “Russia is quick to bend the truth about Ukraine,” and what came to mind is how quick the US and EU…

Ukraine: Energy Hocus-Pocus

The last few weeks were filled with stories about Russia using natural gas as a “tool” against Ukraine. I will not defend Russia against this accusation, but I will defend their right to raise the price – sort of. Everyone is shouting about how evil Russia is, raising…

Ukraine: War With Russia?

We have now gotten to where I can point at this article, where I said that Putin will not march into Ukraine, nor try to take over (more of) the country. Listen to the Western news, and you might disagree. Who would benefit from a…

Ukraine: More Unseen Ultra-Nationalists

I wanted to give some more “ultra-nationalist” news on Ukraine, as ignored by US news media and reported by the Russian news media, before the Crimean referendum vote in a few hours. Mainly because I believe there will be lots of extra fodder in the propaganda…
