After a visit to a local cancer centre, she decided to raise awareness and change people’s perceptions of the disease. “Because of the stigma associated with cancer, many women either hide or withdraw information regarding their disease and opt instead to live in ignorance.

Alan Watts Brings Eastern Wisdom to American TV Viewers in 1959 (Complete Episodes) Nearly forty years after his death, the words of Alan Watts still generate excitement. Fans trade them, in the form of texts, radio broadcasts, recorded talks, and television programs, both online and off. The British-born interpreter and popularizer of East Asian Buddhist thought generated most of his media in the San Francisco of the 1950s and 1960s, and his televised lectures, produced for local public station KQED, must have offered many a San Franciscan their very first glimpse of Zen.

Inside a Tornado" As far as we can tell, there are only two people on record that claim to have been in the center of a tornado and lived. Not surprisingly, both of them were farmers. The first man was Will Keller, from Greensburg, Kan. On June 22, 1928, Mr. Keller was with his family, checking out the damage to his wheat crop from a hailstorm that had just passed.
