You're such a good writer!

Thank you!!

Did you write a Kircus fanfic??

Sort of.  “Hiatus” follows Carol Marcus immediately after “Into Darkness.” She leaves Starfleet but her interactions with Kirk shape what she ultimately decides to do.  It’s as much a Spock/Uhura story, since they are observers and catalysts in the narrative arc.  Check it out!

 Afua Richardson Illustrates the Negro Speaks of Rivers by Langston Hughes for NPR

When I teach this poem in high school, I make sure my students know that Hughes was 17 years old when he wrote this.  17.

Skunk Bear’s “Father of the Week” designed a bionic pancreas.

Ed Damiano’s son David was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes when he was 11 months old. So Ed started to develop a system he calls a “bionic pancreas” — It’s designed to help people better manage their blood sugar.

He’s racing to get it approved by the Food and Drug Administration before his son leaves for college in three years.

Read the full story, from NPR’s Rob Stein, here.

Images:

  • Ed tests tubing for his son’s insulin pump.
  • A pump that uses the hormone glucagon to help provide better blood sugar control.
  • David wears a transmitter on his abdomen that sends data on his glucose levels to a monitoring unit.
  • Ed Damiano and his son David, 15, play basketball at home in Acton, Mass.

Yes, please hurry! This has been hovering in development for so long that the insulin dependent diabetics in my life have stopped feeling hopeful.


Countdown to Sleepy Hollow Season Two 99 Days

For all the SH fans—my cousin is the scenic charge for Season Two, meaning that he supervises the set painters.  It’s going to be hot and muggy and miserable in Wilmington this summer, but you can rest easy knowing the sets are being built, painted, aged, stressed, and made as realistic as possible to help tell the stories!  TV, like film, is incredibly collaborative…and everyone on a production depends on everyone else.
