Medical Minute: Michael Douglas Throat Cancer Battle via [sandrarosenews]

By now you’ve heard the sad news that Oscar winner Michael Douglas, 65, was diagnosed with throat cancer. Other celebrities such as Sammie Davis, Jr., have succumbed to throat cancer.

via [abcnews]

Do you experience a dry, ’sticking’ feeling in your throat when you swallow that feels like a lump in your throat? Do you have difficulty swallowing, or a sore throat that never seems to go away? Or hoarseness that doesn’t clear when you cough? If so, read on…

who is repotedly ‘furious’ about Michael’s late cancer diagnosis

Your throat (pharynx) includes the esophagus (the tube that forms a passage from your throat to your stomach), tonsils and adenoids, the larynx (holds voice box; vocal cords) and epiglottis (the membrane flap that keeps food from going into your lungs when you swallow).

All of these organs are susceptible to cancer. Throat cancer usually develops in men and women over 50 and is 10 times more likely to affect males over 50.

Cancer occurs when cells begin to divide uncontrollably and rapidly. The accumulation of cells sticking together forms a tumor that inhibits the growth of healthy cells. Smokers (including weed smoking), alcoholics and people who chew tobacco are at higher risk for throat cancer than the general population.

*Signs and Symptoms of throat cancer include:

  • Chronic cough (that doesn’t go away)
  • Changes in your voice, such as hoarseness
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Ear pain
  • Neck pain
  • Painful or painless lumps or swelling in your neck
  • A sore throat
  • Wheezing sound in your throat
  • Weight loss
  • Mouth breathing
  • Coughing up blood

*Remember that ‘Signs’ are what you see and ‘Symptoms’ are what you feel.

Contact your doctor if you experience any of these signs and symptoms for more than a week (except for the coughing up blood, which is an emergency). 90% of throat cancers can be cured if diagnosed early.

TIRAMISU Pancakes via [steamykitchen]

Tiramisu Pancakes

A few days ago, I put a call out on Twitter for help.

Marscapone help, to be specific.

Tiramisu Many people came to the rescue, however
it was @Ivoryhut her
responded with a recipe idea that went beyond delectable.

Tiramisu Pancakes.

oh. hell yeah.

Why not have dessert for breakfast? Oh wait, this is getting
confusing. Tiramisu Is breakfast for dessert, because there’s coffee in
it right?


huh?! Never mind! Just….just…go make these pancakes!

And while you’re at it, come visit Ivory Hut food blog –  This woman can
make bread, the most beautiful striped bread
even! (and no, Ivory Hut is not her name, it’s her blogname!)

These photos and recipes are from Ivory Hut – enjoy!

~Jaden

These amazing Tiramisu Pancakes started out as a casual idea spurred
by a tweequest for things to do with half a cup of mascarpone, and the
fact that I had just posted a pancake recipe on my blog. Five batches
of pancakes later and more mascarpone cream ingested than I care to
reveal (more than half of which was simply the result of gluttony), I
now have what is proving to be the favorite breakfast item in my house.
The fact that it also easily works as a dessert gives it extra
versatility points.

The maple-butter glaze is optional, but it gives the pancakes a
nice boost of sweetness and extra maple flavor to remind you that these
are, in fact, pancakes. The mascarpone cream is what really pulls it
all together. If you’re serving this to kiddies, you can substitute
sweetened espresso or very strong coffee for the liqueur. That is, if
they’re allowed to have coffee.

I also maintain that, as decadent
as it sounds, it might be a tad healthier than regular pancakes
because you’re not drowning it in syrup. Really, there isn’t much sugar
in this recipe. For the entire batch, even if you make the glaze, you
only use about 4 tablespoons of maple syrup. That’s less than a
tablespoon per person. I think that more than makes up for the extra
mounds of cream.

==========

Tiramisu Pancakes

recipe from Ivory Hut

(Serves about 5 reasonably hungry people)

For the pancakes:
2
cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa
powder, slightly rounded, sifted
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2
teaspoon baking soda
a generous pinch of salt

1 1/2 cups milk
1/2
cups sour cream
3 large eggs
4 tablespoons butter, melted
2
teaspoons vanilla
2 tablespoons instant coffee

For the glaze
(optional):
1/4 cup maple syrup
3 tablespoons softened butter
2
tablespoons coffee liqueur

For the cream:
4 oz. mascarpone
cheese
1 cup whipping cream
2 tablespoons coffee liqueur
2
tablespoons maple syrup

Instructions:

Start by preparing the cream and the glaze. For the
cream, beat all ingredients together and whip until you have soft
peaks. Set aside in the refrigerator. (Tip: this cream tastes amazing,
and is what really makes these pancakes. If you like generous amounts
of cream on your pancakes, you might want to make a double portion.)
The glaze is optional, but very, very (and I mean very) good. Simply
combine the ingredients well. Set aside.

In a medium bowl, combine the flour, sugar, cocoa
powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Make sure the cocoa
powder is well sifted, so that it will dissolve evenly.

In a separate bowl, combine the milk and sour cream
until smooth (it helps to slowly dilute the sour cream with the milk
while whisking, which reduces the chances of clumps). Add the instant
coffee powder and mix well until dissolved. Whisk in the eggs, melted
butter, and vanilla. Add the wet mixture to the dry ingredients, mixing
gently until you have a slightly lumpy batter but without any large
clumps of flour. If batter is a little runny, add a tablespoon or two
of flour.I like to transfer my batter to a measuring cup or something
else with a spout, for easier cooking.

Let the batter sit while
you preheat your griddle. When griddle is hot, drop batter in portions
desired (1/4 cup for regular-sized pancakes) onto the greased griddle.
When bubbles come up and edges look cooked, gently flip to cook the
other side. Once pancakes are cooked, transfer to a plate.

Spread a small amount of the maple glaze over the top
of the pancake so it soaks in while still hot. Continue with the
remaining batter until done.

To serve, dollop a generous amount of the cream in
between layers of pancakes. Top with more cream, and then top with
shaved chocolate, or a light dusting of sifted cocoa powder.

Serve
with extra cream and/or glaze on the side for dipping. A bonus: these
pancakes taste amazing even when cold.

#1 on The Weary Traveler’s Wishlist is the NEW Dream & Fly. Mini Hotel Pods! via [ifitshipitshere]

Dream & Fly. Mini Hotel Pods For The Weary Traveler.


Barcelona based company Dream & Fly has invented luxury low cost accommodations for busy people in transit who haven’t the time to find a hotel nearby. By creating individual prefabricated micro-hotels (modular pods), complete with a bathroom, a weary traveler can nap or rest in a clean, comfortable, private and even wired space.

The Dream & Fly “bubbles” are modular accommodations intended to be installed within busy airports, sea ports, train stations or other areas in which large concentrations of people are constantly traveling and need a small comfortable private place to sleep or rest.

The modern luxury pods come with a complete bathroom and can be rented by hour. Inspired by the nature of a womb, the pods are meant to shield you from the frenetic pace of places like airports and seaports.

There are three sizes; the Simple Bubble measures 5 meters square, the Single Bubble measures 7 meters square and the Family Bubble is 10 meters square.

Exterior:

Interior:

A passenger can sleep for a few hours in a comfortable bed which can be either single or double, lie down on the pillows of the reclining headrest and work on a fold-out table with access to the internet. He or she can consult the boarding details of their flight on an LCD monitor on the wall and rest all of their newspapers on a shelf next to the bed, which is totally equipped with stations for mobile phones and mp3 players, with ambient sound and electric sockets.

The passenger can take a shower, in the privacy of their own space, where they can find a sink, toilet and modern shower made of stainless steel, reminiscent of airplane bathrooms.

For the family, the larger pod consists of a space with a sofa that transforms into a bed for a body and a half, a cradle or nappy changing facility for babies, and other comforts which demand more space.
