"Research is almost always paid for by pharmaceutical companies. But studies done by industry are well known to have positive results far more frequently. Trials run by industry are 70% more likely than government funded trials to show a positive result."

"did it change your life?" is not the correct question. "did your life change?" might be. the metrics would only barely shift. and the reply is yes, tiny bits of it. any and each day.

i notice a small sailboat perched on the horizon. it is still high morning on the villa and a cool southern wind blows through.

i have a deluge of small rectangular windows cascading on screen, but the fact is that the seniors around me are slowly shifting to follow the sun, like tiny, tender heliantuses.
