Discovering Jesus – Chavez

Amazing how many folks find Jesus when faced with mortality…

Here, Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez discovers God is not just for the uneducated peasants. Many of Chavez’s avowed heroes like Che Guevera were dedicated Marxists. Folks who believed “Religion is the Opiate of the masses.”

Hugo Chavez weeps and calls on God to spare his life

Very little is known about the 57-year-old socialist leader’s condition, including even what type of cancer he has. Chavez has undergone three operations in less than a year, and received two sessions of radiation treatment.

He says the latest surgery was successful, that he is recovering well and will be fit to win a new six-year term at an election in October. Yet big questions remain about his future, and on Thursday the strain appeared to show.

In a televised speech to the Catholic service in his home state of Barinas, Chavez cried and his voice broke as he eulogised Jesus, revolutionary fighter Ernesto “Che” Guevara and South American independence hero Simon Bolivar.

“Never forget that we are the children of giants … I could not avoid some tears,” the former soldier said, his parents and other relatives looking on from the church rows.
“Give me your crown, Jesus. Give me your cross, your thorns so that I may bleed. But give me life, because I have more to do for this country and these people. Do not take me yet,” Chavez added, standing below an image of Jesus with the Crucifix.

Dying for a Hot Dog?

At the rates these scientists are discussing, eating red meat is more harmful than smoking… And a lot of folks out there just thought it was swine!

Time to kill the grill?

All red meat is bad for you, new study says

Eating red meat — any amount and any type — appears to significantly increase the risk of premature death, according to a long-range study that examined the eating habits and health of more than 110,000 adults for more than 20 years.

For instance, adding just one 3-ounce serving of unprocessed red meat — picture a piece of steak no bigger than a deck of cards — to one’s daily diet was associated with a 13% greater chance of dying during the course of the study.

Even worse, adding an extra daily serving of processed red meat, such as a hot dog or two slices of bacon, was linked to a 20% higher risk of death during the study.

“Any red meat you eat contributes to the risk,” said An Pan, a postdoctoral fellow at the Harvard School of Public Health in Boston and lead author of the study, published onlineMonday in the Archives of Internal Medicine.

Crunching data from thousands of questionnaires that asked people how frequently they ate a variety of foods, the researchers also discovered that replacing red meat with other foods seemed to reduce mortality risk for study participants.

Eating a serving of nuts instead of beef or pork was associated with a 19% lower risk of dying during the study. The team said choosing poultry or whole grains as a substitute was linked with a 14% reduction in mortality risk; low-fat dairy or legumes, 10%; and fish, 7%.

Previous studies had associated red meat consumption with diabetesheart disease and cancer, all of which can be fatal. Scientists aren’t sure exactly what makes red meat so dangerous, but the suspects include the iron and saturated fat in beef, pork and lamb, the nitrates used to preserve them, and the chemicals created by high-temperature cooking.

The Harvard researchers hypothesized that eating red meat would also be linked to an overall risk of death from any cause, Pan said. And the results suggest they were right: Among the 37,698 men and 83,644 women who were tracked, as meat consumption increased, so did mortality risk.

In separate analyses of processed and unprocessed meats, the group found that both types appear to hasten death. Pan said that at the outset, he and his colleagues had thought it likely that only processed meat posed a health danger.

Joe Frazier

Smokin’ Joe Frazier passed last night. While Ali may well be the “Greatest” heavyweight fighter ever to grace the ring…

He wouldn’t be considered the greatest without Joe Frazier – who beat him, and then fought him to within a hairs breadth of a second defeat. Greatness requires great opponents – something missing in the ranks of the heavyweights since the days of Ali, Frazier, and Foreman.

Smokin’ Joe Frazier Dead at 67

If cancer could be dropped with a devastating left hook, Joe Frazier would still be with us. The former heavyweight champion has died at the age of 67, just weeks after he was diagnosed with liver cancer, AP reports. Frazier, who won gold for the US at the 1964 Olympic Games in Tokyo, had an epic rivalry with Muhammad Ali, and took him on in three momentous fights in the ’70s. In the so-called Fight of the Century in 1971 he became the first man to beat Ali, but he lost the next two showdowns, including 1975’s classic “Thrilla in Manila,” which Ali described as “the closest I’ve come to death.”

Frazier, who held the world heavyweight title for more than two years, was the son of a South Carolina sharecropper. In his later years, he ran a boxing gym in his adopted hometown of Philadelphia. “I don’t mind working with the kids,” he told CNN in 2009. “The kids is tomorrow.” Asked if he was similar to Rocky Balboa, he said: “Sure. I worked at the slaughterhouse. I’m the guy that ran in the streets of Philadelphia.”

Smokin’ Joe Frazier in Hospice With Liver Cancer

Smokin’ Joe Frazier, the other half of what are probably the greatest heavyweight fights in history against Mohammed Ali is in a Hospice less than a month after being diagnosed with Liver Cancer.

‘Smokin’ Joe Frazier faces toughest fight of all as his family pray for a miracle

‘Smokin’’ Joe Frazier, the 67-year-old former world heavyweight champion, diagnosed just over a month ago with liver cancer and in hospice care in Philadelphia, “needs a miracle” according to his agent.

Doctors have not yet told him how long he has to live.
“We have medical experts looking into all the options that are out there,” explained Leslie Wolff, Frazier’s manager, on Sunday.
“There are very few. But that doesn’t mean we’re going to stop looking. We appreciate every prayer we can get. We’ll just keep our fingers crossed and hope for a miracle. Joe’s a fighter, and doesn’t give up.”
‘Smokin’ Joe, all 5ft 11ins of him, whose upper body was built for wrecking other men’s careers in combat mano a mano, and whose legs once threw his powerful torso fearlessly forward, is close to his final curtain call.
The great American former heavyweight prize fighter is widely recognized for his trilogy of ring wars with Muhammad Ali, who once called Frazier – amongst other things – “a real, real fighter; the toughest man in the world”.

Wayman Tisdale – The Music Doesn’t Stop

Wayman Tisdale wass best known as a hoops superstar. What is less known about him was his love for music.

Faced with cancer, Tisdale lost a leg – and a career in sports. But the music remained.

Here is Wayman in a live performance, back in April 2009, a month before he passed away. Wayman is still an inspiration.
