Stranger in the Mirror of My Life: Poems for Everyone Affected by HIV/AIDS

Stranger in the Mirror of My Life: Poems for Everyone Affected by HIV/AIDS | Gabrielle's Yr 9 Journal | Scoop.it

"Stranger in the Mirror of My Life” is an attempt to capture essentially the socio-psychological colourations, factors and effects of living withHIV/AIDS, and how they affect the way we live – whether positive or negative. I’m literally putting the mirror before the faces of people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA) to help them see the man in the mirror and say:

“I’m HIV positive. I’m no stranger to myself. I’m no stranger to the world. This is my body. This is my life. And I’m in charge!”

The words above is the opening lines in the preface of my forthcoming collection of poems on HIV/AIDS, “Stranger in the Mirror”. It is now finally ready for release this month – ahead of this year’s World AIDS Day.

Breast cancer 'rising in under-40s'

Breast cancer 'rising in under-40s' | Gabrielle's Yr 9 Journal | Scoop.it

"Cases of breast cancer in women under 40 are rising across Europe, research suggests.

Experts say it is unclear whether this is due to improved diagnosis or new risk factors.

A study in Cancer Epidemiology found cases rose by about 1% a year between 1990 and 2008 in seven countries.

Breast cancer is the most common cause of cancer among women globally, and the leading cause of cancer death.

Cancer in young women is rare - only about 5% of all breast cancers are in women under the age of 40.

Despite this, it is the leading cause of death in young adult women.

Researchers in France and Italy studied trends in breast cancer in women under 40 in Belgium, Bulgaria, France, Italy, Portugal, Spain and Switzerland over an 18-year period.

They found that on average cases rose by about 1% a year in women under 40, with the greatest rise in women under 35.

It is unclear if this is due to a rise in risk factors or improving methods of diagnosis, they say.

Tessa Fergusson's curator insight, November 14, 2013 7:59 PM

This is a Discussion about whether obesity is a lifestyle or a disease. Different sorts of people catorgerise it as either one or the other, when in reality no one has the right answer. Docters and scientists say that the answer varies for each person. What Merriam-Webster suggests ineterests me, and it makes a good arguement. She says a disease is a 'condition of the living animal/plant, impairs normal functioning and as signs and symptons'. Obesity doesn't fit the dictionary's definition of a disease. Herndon (in the article) hoes on and gives good examples that have convinced me that obesity isn't a disease but a liefstyle of a person.

AbbeyHe's curator insight, November 16, 2013 6:12 PM

Basically this article is arguing whether obesity is a disease or not. The dictionary describes a disease is a part of the body impairs normal functioning and usually appears with symptoms. So some people argue that obesity is a state of people not a disease. Like light- skined people tend to have skin cancer but that doesn't mean they are diseased. 

 

This article presents a very interesting point as it argues obesity is not a disease. However, people have obesity do tend to have diabetes and all other diseases. So whether or not obesity is a disease, it does increase the chance of getting other diseases. 

Indiana Brown's curator insight, November 18, 2013 6:29 PM

Being one of the biggest issues in Australia and America obesity is a rising problem that people need to be aware of. This article debates whether its a lifestyle or and disease which would be interesting to readers of today.
