The most common symptom of Asperger?s Syndrome is an obsessive interest in a single subject. However, having such a close focus on that subject often allows an individual with Asperger?s to excel at a level above their peers. A new e-book series geared toward teens now celebrates the outstanding abilities of those with Asperger?s instead of focusing on their disabilities.
?We are not fully utilizing the talents and abilities of individuals with Asperger?s the way we could. I wrote these books to encourage young people with Asperger?s and to better educate the general public about it,? said author Ed Graham. ?Frequently, individuals with Asperger?s excel at math and science, two fields where America is falling behind.?
Each e-book stars a teenager with Asperger?s Syndrome. In Graham?s latest book, ?The Incredible Henry Hof,? a boy who is not an athlete is able to set a Guiness World Record by using his exceptional abilities in spherical trigonometry to score 99 points during one half of a high school basketball game. The book series includes illustrations by Zan Barnett.
Henry Hof isn?t just a fictional character. The actual Henry Hof was a high school and college basketball star, who served as a Peace Corps volunteer helping to build schools in South America. He later headed Latin American aid for the United Nations and was instrumental in projects that saved lives.
Two e-books in ?The Awesome Aspie? series are ?The Incredible Henry Hof? and ?Somebody Hears Me!? Both are available for purchase through Amazon.com and coming soon on iTunes.
When treated effectively, children with Asperger?s can learn to manage their disability, but may continue to struggle socially and with personal relationships. Asperger?s is often likened to a mild form of autism. Adults with Asperger?s are generally able to maintain an independent lifestyle and successfully work in a mainstream job.
?Our educational system tends to place those with Asperger?s in special classes where they are taught subjects of little use, like how to pick up signals that others are not interested in continuing a conversation,? said Graham. ?Instead this time could be focused on allowing them to concentrate on their own area of expertise and develop it thoroughly. If our system took full advantage of the exceptional abilities of people with Asperger?s, America?s sagging education scores might show a surprising jump.?
Sudden Infant Death Syndrome Has Finally Been Solved and Cancers Are Explained As Due to the Transfer of DNA from a Drug Resistant Bacteria, Helicobacter Plyori, which was classified in 1995 as a Carcinogen, by the NIH!
(PRWEB) May 29, 2004
(PRWEB) May 29, 2004 The riddle of SIDS and what causes cancers has been solved. Both cancers and Sudden Infant Death Syndrome(SIDS) are caused by the same type of rapidly acting DNA, from the Helicobacter plyori bacteria, according to Bruce D McKay, an independent researcher in Tampa, Florida.
Mr McKay says there was a bacteria put on a list of carcinogenic agents in 1995, because it was proven to be somehow able to start two gastric stomach cancers. This was fully certified by a slect panel from the National Institutes of Health, and published on page 1621 of Science, on March 17, 1995.(1) No one before has ever explained it. The Helicobacter pylori are a drug resistant species and frequently found to have many links to various cases of SIDS. According to McKay, no one explained it because almost everyone wrongly ‘thinks of drug resistance’ as being due to evolution, and the whole system of logic all ‘faces’ along side that concept. The real facts of the matter ‘face in the opposite direction;’ the drug resistant bacteria have the ability to trasfer their own drug resistance genes. Theose genes are passed to other cells in what is known as plasmid DNA’s.
What is also NOT well known is that virtually every antibacterial drug in use can be rendered ineffective by one or another R plasmid, and many of them contain multiple drug-resistant determinants.(2) McKay says, this is then the real missing answer as to what causes both two different gastric cancers, and why many children frequently die of SIDS.” It also explains every form of drug resistant cancer, and all the tumors.
“Look at it in just the opposite manner,” McKay says. “There are those who do a great deal of research on transferrable DNAs every day – while the exact nature of a secondary form of DNA has never caught anyone’s attention. The DNA responsible, McKay says, should be called TransDNA. Researchers have studied every aspect of it – without ever coming to grips with the reality of it; it is a form of DNA that explains how the properties of bacterial cells change at a frequecy that is much higher than that expected on the basis of spontaneous mutations, and the properties affected often include several of medical importance, relating to antigenicity, virulence, and adhesion.’(3) In other words it explans that something has got to be wrong with how researchers have all been looking at each of these various processes.”
McKay says a TransDNA system fits the ‘flip-flop’ of some systems in DNA. It fits as ‘altering the range of host bacterial cells,’ when they become infected by phanges. What researchers failed to account for was the similarity between two clases of site-specific recombination events, it fits that too; and those events were reported as not superficial.(4) In brief it fits many different changes taking place within a drug resistant bacteria’s transferable DNA. He says, this form of DNA can even account for the rapid switching of ‘invertible DNA segments.’ It is an efficient and almost instant mechanism for adaptaion to any change in environment. It ‘sets up’ and can even ‘reset,’ the actual combinations of ‘virulence and antibiotic-resistance genes’ that it merges together to form a single plasmid. And it even fixes the rearrangement of genes into very complex plasmids (5) McKay says, all of these things happen to the DNA of drug resistant bacteria, and no one has ever before recognized how all of this is a part of a common DNA system of transfer, regulation, and control. Furthermore, he feels that anyone who attribute all of these effects to evolution, is constantly ‘turning away’ from the very thing that everyone has been looking for – and that’s exactly what’s been going on.
If a drug or some other highly disruptive factor hits, altering the normal environment of the drug resistant bacteria, they counter by immediately switching genes. McKay points out, they would all be dead, head on with just about any problem, if they relied on an evolution based reaction. The antibiotics would all work – if they drug resistant bacteria and the drug resistant cancer and tumor cells, were all running on evolution! And the DNA that is passed from the drug resistant bacteraia can even generate a change of its common adhesion molecules, as another very easy way to survive. Meanwhile, researchers who very seriously study metastasis, laborously following so-called cancer causing cells as they metastise to various tissues in the body – while trying to deduce how in the world the cancer cells can adhere or just plain stick to this or that given type of cell, where they lodge and then cause the next cancer to take place.
