Research scientist makes a life-changing discovery

Dr Siyaram Pandey is hailed as the scientist who has possibly discovered the cure for several types of cancer. A professor in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of Windsor, his research is focused on apoptosis (cell suicide), which is central to various aspects of human health including neuro-degeneration, stroke and cancer. The dandelion root extract he worked with has been approved by Health Canada for clinical trials against blood-related cancers, becoming the first natural cure for cancer to receive the approval. “I am not the world’s best cancer researcher,” says Dr Pandey. “These cures should have discovered 20 years ago. But the blame...

The three Ps of problem-solving

As a retired senior executive, I try not to go back to the organizations that I served because new executives don’t need previous executives poking around. However, recently I was invited by the union of an academic institution where I served as second-in-command to speak at the retirement of their local union president, and I readily accepted because I have such high regard for this person. In many institutions the relationship between union presidents and senior executives can often be acerbic. But this union president and I never had a harsh or angry word between us. He is a consummate gentleman, kind, gentle, professional, highly knowledgeable and he subscribed to...

Are negative people opportunities?

In The Essence of Happiness the Dalai Lama says that when negative people enter our lives we should treat those intrusions as opportunities to practise tolerance. Our exercise should be to try and replace that anger with serenity. Even though it is hard to do, when it does happen the sense of achievement brings a smile to the face and a load off the heart. In Dear Didi’s column in Desi News, we often read about the stresses that family interferences cause for some readers. In other newspaper columns we read about serious problems caused by relatives, friends and co-workers.Anxieties with extended family members and co-workers can cause sustained stress. Sometimes...

It’s natural to be motivated by compassion

Shortly after buying my first house, I discovered that my next door neighbour tended to overreact to any dilemma.His name was Joe, and I started thinking of him as Overkill Joe, and later simply Joverkill.For example, Joverkill found that he had squirrels living in his attic. It was no surprise to me that he had more squirrels in his yard than anyone else on the street. He had two lovely nut trees growing at either end of his house. In his front yard was a beautiful oak tree. A perfect shade tree, if I ever did see one; and in the fall it was laden with acorns. In his back yard was a huge pecan tree that I was particularly fond of because it would drop about a half bushel of pecans on my...
