    Great post Jim. It is estimated that the average person in the US uses between 80 and 100 gallons of water per day. Multiply this times 320 million people, and 32 billion gallons A DAY get flushed, showered and sprayed down the drain. And this does not take into account the strain of industrial processes. Hydrocarbon consumption pales in comparison.

    Humans lived for thousands of years without fuel oil. We can only live for about five days without water. Some very astute investors, including those that accurately predicted the collapse of the housing and credit markets back in 2008 are now investing heavily in water rights, water processing equipment manufacturers, and water utilities. In my humble opinion, water shortages are a looming catastrophe that will indeed make the Keystone controversy look silly.

    yes, demonetization is not perhaps the apt measure to curb black money, stash money or fake currency, which is truly running a parallel economy in the country. most importantly, black money are easily being transferred to foreign bank through net banking or electronic banking system. simply a gimmick and harassing ordinary mass. time will definitely tell about the callous move of the government, a dementia being reflected in their act. nice insight @Abhilash Gaur! enjoyed read. thank you for the share.

    #11 #10 Thanks for such a thorough answer, @Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD. In all honesty, you have reinforced that our strategy of citizen science is the right course of action. Mostly because when I read this 'synopsis' of the process, it is clear why so many basic things that work can never be validated by the 'establishment' Obviously there is a need for this kind of research - I do want this kind of rigorous process evaluating drugs and surgical options - but there is a big wide gap when it comes to basics. What kinds of exercise really help - and why? OR what minimal daily amount of something like magnesium is therapeutic, not simply the RDA.

    All that said, there just has to be an Angel Investor type tired of nothing but apps who truly wants to do something meaningful. A compendium of all the various ways people find to deal with PD alongside their medications would be truly beneficial and this kind of data might even help the PhD's with even better hypotheses for the deep research work... So we keep on, trying to make that connection!

    #7 The solid, tried-and-true NIH Research Grants for the entry level and the seniors, too are formal. The K-1 is easiest to get if I have another RO1 Recipient that I would 'work under' for 5 years. The RO1 is what I achieved in the past. All require an Institutional Review Board (IRB) that reviews the research before it is even submitted to the NIH. The NIH won't even look at the application unless that is stated in the first sentence. Things may have changed since 2000, and here is the full link: http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/parent_announcements.htm

    #5 Great idea on getting a grant for research! I've written $3 million in NIH Grants while I was an Assistant Professor at the University of Pennsylvania. Unless the Principal Investigator (PI) has an MD or a PhD at the end of your name, it'll go to the bottom of the pile. Let me know if you want my help - but that means a 1-year commitment minimum: hypothesis, materials and methods, statistical analysis specifics, preliminary data collection, preliminary conclusion(s), and a motivational, expository writing style that instigates the reviewers to Want to know you for life. They don't just want one grant submission. The Rejection will be re-written and critiqued if we are lucky enough to get "hints" on the rejection cause. And they will want real results, implementation of results, and all of this is the starting point for future grants through the same Committee, who will be "on your side" and "for your efforts" for decades. I'm "in" with others if this is clearly understood. It is not for the light-hearted, sensitive to rejection, or faint of heart. It is Hardball all the way.

    @Neal Rauhauser. I applaud the strength it took to approach your situation in such a pragmatic manner. We've been chatting for awhile and I can say that you have a smart head on your shoulders and would be a very valuable resource on any contract work in the realms of your experience.

    I think it is time that we all begin to realize there is nothing inherently 'magical' about the 8 hour work day. It was implemented due to assembly lines, not because it truly fit human biological capabilities.

    @Gary Sharpe and I would certainly be interested in partnering with you on something similar to the USDA innovation grant... to help us do some citizen science work around all the lifestyle parameters that lead up to PD. There does seem to be a personality type component and while all the science funding is digging deep into the brain, I think finding out about commonalities before diagnosis might be a fruitful avenue of inquiry both for prevention and to assist with the most promising ways to improve health once diagnosed.

    This is exactly the epidemic of Invisible Illnesses. The best we can do, in my opinion, is work from home. Or, from bed. So I can see you on paper, and have an inkling of what you can do, but I need the heart of the matter, the person that is the real "you." For surely as with others who suffer chronic pain, you have learned to live and grow and thrive in your own aims. So I say, join MEMOIR MADNESS so we get to know "you"....for I suspect that you know who 'you' are, and you are not merely a reflection of who others think you can be. That is inherently against your grain. I want to know the story of how you became. And I expect to hear the pain, for one does not arrive where you are without the rain and the storms and the lightening abounding all around. I can hear the sound. But talk to me, and let me walk with you, for it needs to be more personal than you have ever found. Give it up, give it all. Start anew and we will be with you.
