Mavis Staples Interview: Donald Trump, Obama, Civil Rights, Turning 80 - Rolling Stone

Image
Just a little under 20 years ago, Mavis Staple thought her career was over. Pops Staples, her father and the leader of the Staples Singers, had just died and she didn’t see how she could possibly carry on without him. “I’d just sit down and wouldn’t get up,” Mavis Staples tells Rolling Stone . “I was so depressed. And then one day my sister Yvonne came by my house and said, ‘Mavis, you get up. Daddy would want you to sing. Get off that couch!’ When she left me house, I did just that. I got up.” She went on to have a remarkable career resurrection as a solo singer, working with everyone from Jeff Tweedy to M. Ward on new albums and touring all over America as an opening act for her old friend Bob Dylan. As she gets ready for her 80th birthday later this year, Staples called up Rolling Stone to share the wisdom that she’s learned throughout the course of her long life. You turn 80 in July. How do you feel? I feel good. When I was a kid, 80 was old, but I don’t feel old. I’m not as

Patients With Migraine at Increased Risk for Open-Angle Glaucoma - AJMC.com Managed Markets Network

According to a new study, migraine is associated with a higher risk of open-angle glaucoma compared with patients with no migraine. While the exact pathophysiology behind migraine is unknown, the condition has been associated with neurovascular dysfunction due to changes in blood vessels, hypoperfusion disorders, and microembolization. Because of this association, migraine has been linked to endothelial dysfunction and therefore considered a systemic vasculopathy. Systemic vascular diseases also present in patients with glaucoma, which has begged the question of whether migraine is a concomitant condition in glaucoma or if it is a risk factor for the disease. According to a new study, it's the latter, with migraine being associated with a higher risk of open-angle glaucoma (OAG) compared with patients with no migraine. The findings come from a 10-year follow-up study of 17,238 patients diagnosed with migraine between January 1, 2000, and December 31, 2010, and 69,132 matched cont

Efforts ongoing to change state law and allow optometrists to treat glaucoma - MetroWest Daily News

When she lived in Pennsylvania, Aimee McLean went to her regular optometrist for treatment for ocular pressure, which could cause glaucoma, a neurological disorder that leads to vision impairment or blindness, if not treated early. She was surprised when she moved to Massachusetts and learned that the optometrist she entrusted all her other eye care to, and whose office was within walking distance of her Billerica apartment, could not treat her for ocular pressure. Instead, she would have to take additional time off from work to drive to an ophthalmologist she was referred to in Boston after getting an appointment, then pay to park and pay an additional and higher co-pay. Massachusetts is the only state that does not allow optometrists to write prescriptions for treatment of glaucoma and ocular diseases. Optometrists usually detect the disease. But they are not allowed to care for it, even though glaucoma is one of the areas that optometrists are educated in because they need to be p

Shingles can hit hard and do lasting damage - Science News

At age 37, Hope Hartman developed a painful, burning rash in her right ear, in the part “you would clean with a Q-tip,” the Denver resident says. The pain got so bad she went to a local emergency room, where the staff was flummoxed. Hartman was admitted to the hospital, where she started to lose sensation on the right side of her face. During that 2013 health crisis, Hartman’s husband, Mike, sent a picture of the ear to his mom, a nurse. She said it looked like zoster, better known as shingles, which is caused by the varicella zoster virus. She “diagnosed it from an iPhone photo,” Hartman recalls. Antiviral treatment didn’t fully clear the infection. For about two weeks after her release from the hospital, Hartman coped with severe pain, hearing loss and difficulty eating. Her right eye wouldn’t fully open or close. Following an appointment with neurologist Maria Nagel of the University of Colorado School of Medicine in Aurora, Hartman was admitted to the university’s hospital to get

Brian Koffman, MDCM, DCFP, DABFM, MS Ed, Medical Director, CLL Society As someone treated with chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T cells, what do you do regarding follow-up? What is your physician keeping an eye out for? Since CAR T is a new therapy, and the first genetic therapy that’s been approved in the United States by the FDA, I’m being followed for 15 years. Which I’m very happy about, because if I’m being followed for 15 years, that will mean I’m 82 years old, so it means I’ve lived 15 years with this. I’m being followed to see are there any undiscovered adverse events that we don’t know about. It is gene therapy, I have foreign genes in my body, that’s why it’s a chimera—a mix of 2 different creatures in me. So I have foreign protein in me. Is this going to cause a problem? Other gene therapies have been disastrous in the past. So far with CAR T things have gone well. But is there something that’s going to pop up 5 years from now, 10 years from now? We really don’t know the an
