    I was disappointed that Dr Michael Rathbone was speaking in Windsor on the same day I would find myself in Toronto for surgery consult with an Orthopaedic Surgeon. He's 'a big researcher' in Ontario at least. I believe he works out of Hamilton.

    But I see he's also speaking the next day in London .. yet another 2hr trip .. with two other speakers, one on wounds I'd especially like to hear. I'll bring what info I gather if I make it ... these are put on by the Canadian Paraplegic Association (yay they're changing towards cure related thinking!!!) Hope to hear good news.

    *** This is a good time for those in Quebec, the Maritimes and the Territories to bother their MP's about matching Alberta, Ontario and BC in $10,000,000+ towards the Rick Hansen Foundation because of the upcoming federal election!

    and is researching electrical stimulation on healing wounds such as pressure ulcers experienced by people with a spinal cord injury.



    MICHEL RATHBONE, PHD “Rebuilding the Spinal Cord: Dreams &
    Reality”


    Dr. Michel Rathbone, Professor of Neurology at McMaster University,
    graduated from Liverpool University Medical School, has a PhD in
    Biochemistry from McMaster and trained as a neurologist at UWO. He has
    published over 250 papers and abstracts on his scientific work, is actively

    It is not unlike rolling a dice in a casino. The only difference is that if anybody wins, everybody wins.

    You say 4 years trial's what date did it star or when is going to star ?

    Mr. Mcadam,

    If I were you I'd contact the site administrators and get them to change your user name, it's not a good idea to have your personal email address on public display.

    Keith,

    Be brave! Hope dies with us!..Just don't spent much time dwelling on it, like I did in first couple years!...Take everything, even Chairman Young tells you., not as dogma..If you do-you will be waisting valuable life time....Many quads before me (I'm 13 years post), will agree......Was on numerous forums, before Wise got secure funding for this one...Yup.....Its hard to adjust...But as my late Dad always said-Take it easy-but Take it!

    Hope it might help you? If not its ok...with me or my inner peace

    jah! maybe every black hole in the universe once was a civilization that couldn't resist the temptation of building a large particle generator

    (The Mayan Calender doesn't exactly "end" 2012 it's more complex than that)

    Patricks,
    It's interesting to debate this issue. I could be mistaken; but I believe the ending of the Mayan calendar coincides with a phenomena that occurs very rarely,"more then 100,000 years". It is a period of time "Time being relevant" when there is a particular alignment of our Sun, the planets and the center of our galaxies. At this time no one knows what, if anything at all will occur. It's possible the Mayan's who were a very advanced civilization have simply ended their calendar due to the relevance of a new period of time beginning with this phenomena. I believe the date is 12-21-2012. Any way if we are still around lets send an email the next day and have a laugh about it.

    You people are amazing

    I have been reading some posts and to be frank have seen such amazing intelligence, fortitude and courage beyond my wildest dreams. I highly admire you all and my little problem seems so insignificant.
    Tell me how I can lobby for stem cell research...tell me how I can try to help..I can be persistent.
