Re: “Losing Hanna, Part II

My mother had been diagnosed of Hepatitis B disease 3 years ago. She had been using the interferon therapy (Peg-interferon + Ribavirin) which adversely affected her hemoglobin level as she is also thalassemic (a side effect of using the interferon therapy). Luckily after stopping the treatment.

I read a book by HEALTH MED LAB about natural cures and he recommends these two things as a natural cure for HEPATITIS disease,Hydrogen Peroxide Therapy and Crocodile Protein Peptide. You can Google both of these to get more info. Also, need to do the cleanses,colon, liver, kidney, galbladder. Eat organic foods to get the toxins out of your body so your body can overcome the disease itself.This is important. I am not promoting his book, but I feel it is a must read if you want information on how to beat this awful disease. My mother is now HEPATITIS Negative with his help, Anyway, his email : ( ) God bless and good luck!

Re: “Metro Atlanta’s arcade underground

I used to love the 2001 arcade at the Gallieria. They had arcade games, ten Apple IIe computers you could pay $2/hour to play on, and a restaurant onsite where you ordered your food using a phone at each table. If you were kicking butt playing on an Apple they'd put your game up on a big movie screen. Those were awesome days.

Good call on Challenges, and the arcade at South DeKalb Mall was amazing as well.

Re: “Metro Atlanta’s arcade underground

I missed it ... and they had a Whirlwind machine, too. I'm so very sad.

That was the pinball machine that probably cost me my spring semester grades as a college freshman.

Re: “Metro Atlanta’s arcade underground

Great article, nicely written. I really wish there was a business model for arcades or barcades that worked in Georgia. Its embarassing that such a great town is such a gaming desert.

Re: “Metro Atlanta’s arcade underground

Please stop putting GIFs in articles. It is very distracting and makes it very difficult to read the words next to the GIFs. This is a bad trend, and just that, a trend. Please don't.

Sure Broch, anecdote is always better than fact, especially that kind of anecdote.

Re: “A Q&A with Mike King, author of ‘A Spirit of Charity’

@ cityzen
I have plenty of cousins in the UK who tell me how well NHS works, a much better source than you chose for your lecture.
None of my cousins are wealthy but they all scrimp to purchase private health insurance to provide care beyond the NHS minimum. They pray this private insurance eill extend their lives.
NHS costs are soaring out of control and quality of service is declining, in part due to unfettered immigration, similar to this country.

Re: “A Q&A with Mike King, author of ‘A Spirit of Charity’

Broch, Here's some education on the NHS for you. Brits pay less than half what Americans pay for health and Brits get health care for everyone. Life expectancy is the same in the UK and US. Nobody in the UK suffers personal bankruptcy over healthcare and nobody gets an avalanche of bills after a health care episode.

One reason the NHS costs so much less than the US approach is that it eliminates the entire industry of insurance, billing for services, dunning patients, etc., as well as the ludicrous marketing of hospitals and doctors. That way, the money all goes on doctors, nurses and hospitals. Incentives to over-treat and over-test and defraud are absent. And drugs and procedures that are priced way higher than benefit are not paid for. The rich can opt to pay for anything they want in private hospitals, of course. Surgeons do not make millions, but make a good living.

Health care innovation and aging population create inexorable upward pressure on health costs everywhere and the NHS is not immune. As everywhere else, the Brits want more health provision but don't want to pay for it, which is why it will always be a political hot potato. The NHS remains the most cost-effective health system in the world.

Re: “Georgia’s broken mental-health system

"But even these patients are one unlucky break away from trouble. Something as random as an argument with a family member, a late Social Security check, an arrest for disorderly conduct, a frustrated municipal court judge who is tired of dealing with them can put them in jeopardy."

And this is why we used to have state-funded, residential mental hospitals. Yes, the Central State Hospital had dark historical periods related to ignorance, under-funding, and low-staff pay. It also had high points providing critical housing and care to thousands of people over the years.

When we utterly shuttered the Central State Hospital, we threw out the baby with the bath water. There is still a dire need for residential care especially among the poor or among those whose own parents have passed away. But I suppose it easier to let people languish between the streets and shelters as well as more profitable to warehouse the mentally ill in for-profit prisons when they become inconvenient. What has our society become?

Re: “2016 Answers Issue

1. The gourds are bird houses, not bird feeders, though it's too tall for birds to actually use them.
2. Clark Atlanta needs to drop the suit and let progress and revitalization move forward.
3. The Urban Fox is a saint.

@ sylcox
The UK NHS is often held up as a shining example of nationalized healthcare to which this country should aspire. Today's truth is that it is in free fall with patients suffering, long wait times, and cascading costs. You might want to educate yourself on the subject.

Re: “A Q&A with Mike King, author of ‘A Spirit of Charity’

Who exactly among "us" claims the US health care system is "the greatest in the world"? The US does not even come close by any rating and has not for decades. It is not just an issue of a "health care system that is not equally shared by all Americans." Those who belive the private insurance they have paid into for years ensures excellent service are at the mercy of insurance companies who commonly deny treatment and services. The entire system is broke, as are the taxpayers who feel ripped by private and public medical providers who have an agenda far removed from their needs. This is not a simple question of caring about the poor, it is an acknowledgement that the US cannot and will not consistently assure quality healthcare to anyone. Try a book about that.
