Shots at Winthrop and Thorndale

Heard shots roughly half an hour ago and it appears that a man was shot on Winthrop near the Thorndale corner. Be careful out there folks.

  • That's why I am afraid of going to the Armory !!!!! I am 68 years old. I can't run anymore.

  • I Had To Say It Reality does not equal negativity.

    You just need to duck. Ducking and "I've Fallen And I Can't Get Up" are kinda the same thing in these cases.

Breast massage?

Ok, given the lymphatic system in women's breasts and the rate of breast cancer in my family, I am looking for a full body massage including breasts. Non sexual just preventative. Any thoughts or recommendations?

    Of course cancer cells by definition almost* never stop dividing unless removed or killed. The whole point is that malignancy itself is defined as cells continuing to divide unchecked. It is true that the only way to get a malignant cell to stop dividing is to remove it surgically or kill it by either poisoning it with chemo, burning it to death with radiation or cutting off its blood supply (including the vessels it creates for itself via angiogenesis) by using targeted recombinant DNA-derived substances to halt or reverse angiogenesis.

    Read Siddhartha Mukerjee's "Cancer: the Emperor of All Maladies" (or find episodes of the PBS series based on it archived online). Of course, Mukerjee's an allopathic doctor, so certain people will automatically think him biased. (What kind of world do we live in when science is considered a viewpoint or agenda that needs defending)?

    * As to "almost" never, I cited spontaneous cancer cell death as being a VERY RARE occurrence, which sometimes is the real reason behind tumors mysteriously shrinking or disappearing (often mis-attributed to "spiritual healing"). In reality, that is EXCEEDINGLY rare, perhaps even apocryphal (could be the tumor that disappeared may never have been malignant).

    UNonetheless, lymphatic massage doesn't prevent anything--it can and does simply alleviate edema that already exists. It may help cancer patients feel better, but it neither cures nor prevents cancer. Anyone who tells you otherwise is either selling you a bill of goods or has some sort of grudge against medical science--perhaps an undesirable medical outcome?

    Massage makes you feel better. No harm in that. But all this talk of needing to get rid of “toxins” is pure baloney, and therefore even more so as the alleged mechanism underlying the basis for the spurious theory that it somehow prevents cancer.

    (I say “baloney” because EB’s terms of service prohibit the use of the stronger term I’d prefer. My apologies to the lunchmeat).

Feel Good Story

Wanted to give a big shout out to all the neighbors and beat cops that rallied behind the Raccoon family rescue last night on Glenwood. After two baby raccoons fell off a roof, the mom desperately tried to gather her babies to safety, it was a group of awesome neighbors that kept the babies safe and reunited them in another volunteer's home with mom.
Say what will about raccoons, it was great to be part of something positive in the neighborhood.

    I guess a lot of people in this group have led a very sheltered life. Didn't anyone one ever see a dead dog, cat, bird rat,. mouse, fish or nay other animal when they were a kid? I lived in the city & I really don't think the experience "scarred" me for life. It was sad to see the neighbor kids dog get hit by a car, but things happen. To be so concerned over children seeing dead animals seems a little over protective to me. I still say you do not want a raccoon living in your attic

  • They were savable, they were saved and they were turned over to a wildlife rescue group. Three pluses. These young raccoons were live. Saving them was the right thing to do. Sheltered...from whence did that assumption come? And, there is NO one who has disagreed and put forth that raccoons & other wild animals belong in one's residence. That is not what the thread was about.

  • Most Edgewater residents live in buildings that never had a pre-1909 street number. However, if you are interested in the old numbering, the Edgewater Historical Society website has a section on researching your home's history, including a cross-reference of current street-number to pre-1909 street-number. Go here (http://www.edgewaterhistory.org/ehs/research/edgewater-streets-previous-names) to see a chart of street names (some were renamed) and click a name to see a chart relating the current street number to the pre-1909 number.

  • One more thing related to old street numbers (if anyone is interested). There's a set of 1905 maps of Edgewater by neighborhood on the EHS website. http://www.edgewaterhistory.org/ehs/local/maps (under the heading "1905 Sanborn maps of the neighborhoods"). When you are looking at a map, you can zoom into an area of interest and see the street numbers as they were in 1905.

Multiple Spare Tires Stolen Overnight

Good Morning, well for some it is not. Walking to my vehicle this morning to go to work and I noticed that a neighbor had their spare tire taken off the back of their SUV and the cover just laying on the ground next to it.

As I drove around the block I noticed three more this happened to.

This was in the area of Glenwood/Balmoral/Lakewood/Berwyn.

If anyone has camera's I would encourage them to send to the police. Unfortunately all these individuals need to call the police to ensure no other items were taken and give their personal info. Nothing anyone else can do.

  • SUV are the car in which most shoot outs are from. Please community people please have your camera on your cell phone ready. To tape and report any crime.

  • Just wondering if anyone else heard anything additional about this

    Dear friends, I deeply apologize for the earlier post, must have had a bad senior moment at 68 years old and just frustration With all the crime happening from what most described SUV cars used for drive by shooting. I don't get out much scared of going out to do anything. No walking my grand daughter, no shopping, hold ups in day light on the street, I can't even attend the armory for senior activities. I am so sorry I responded so negatively to "Multiple Spare Tire Stolen Over Night" Post. I am sorry I have offered my neighbors, what I meant is that type of cars with stole parts where probably stolen by theves who are running around in SUV's were described doing drive by shootings. And maybe those gangs are stealing to repair there own Cars that are used for crime purpose. At least two SUV's crimes where used on Thorndale Broadway's. For that one purpose drive by shootings. I hope the catch the theves who stole those good nieghbors car tires from back of their SUV cars. God bless you all. Again I deeply apologize for a reckless post. Really I am.

At about 5:30 PM on Monday night some jerk (a guy) peeled off Ridge onto north bound Glenwood in a fit of road rage and I was just sitting there south bound waiting for the light to turn green and he clipped and destroyed my driver's side mirror. It almost looked intentional and for no reason. I was just sitting there minding my own business. I had my kid with me and wanted to make sure he was okay. I tried to get his license plate # but he was gunning it knowing that someone would have tried. I couldn't read it. It was a new model black Toyota Camry. Probably weaving through parents with strollers, kids, and dog walkers past Senn High School. Someone had to have noticed this guy (come on). Anyway, that's my rant as the remnants of my mirror lay on Glenwood and Ridge.

Be safe out there people.

    James - what teachers are overpaid? Isn't a well educated citizenry of value to society? Teachers choose to become educators, rather than work for private businesses; this is an important value and they should be rewarded accordingly. Professional athletes and movie stars are overpaid; teachers are not.

  • Curriculum modeled on Exeter? - does that mean their class sizes are no greater than 12 and they all sit at Harkness tables?
