Re: “Can "Niches in Inpatient Psychiatry" Redeem the Brattleboro Retreat?

I have spent three periods in the LGBT unit and as a "friendly" at that -- also welcome in the unit, straight but not narrow. I have to say the place saved my life and I was a difficult patient when I came in, subject to "one-on-one" surveillance at first. The unit staff is remarkable and the day crew has had very little turnover.

Re: “When Should Parents Start Discussing Sex with Their Kids?

Cindy, love your realistic approach. I was a child of the 50's, which some folks imagine as being a time of innocence and purity. What a bunch of bull-dicky. We didn't have the internet but there were books and magazines and our own curiosity. What is it that causes sexual amnesia when people become parents? We are born sexual creatures. How we direct that energy has a lot to do with the kind of person we become.

Re: “A Burlington Teacher Unveils the Secrets of Snake-Style Tai Chi

Hm! I am intrigued that you feel so threatening this style. I never heard snake style practitioner say anything negative about your style. I will definitely join the Ocean State Studio here in Rhode Island

Re: “A Burlington Teacher Unveils the Secrets of Snake-Style Tai Chi

Dear Ms. Tuff Dunn,

I invite you finish what you started in your article: come to NYC to the school of Sifu H. Won Gim and see for yourself the difference between our system and everything else (including pretenders like Boyd).

That is, of course, if you are looking for investigative journalism and not just to promote local businesses.

Re: “A Runner’s Yoga Marathon: Day 1

Quite an accomplished long distance runner, or so sayeth the interwebs. (Collegiate All American isn't too shabby. I'd choose that over being able to touch my toes any day!)

Re: “A Yoga Enthusiast Turns Competitor

It seems as though the negative commenter above has missed the entire point of the article, and revealed information NOT mentioned in the article, and thus exposed his identity.
"How can a woman..." Says Mike4653 continuing the shameful and despicable trend of men judging women for choices they can not possibly relate to.
Here are a few things nearly all of us benefit from and enjoy despite its founder's lack or moral integrity; iPhones, Disney movies, industrial textiles, America Democracy.

Re: “A Yoga Enthusiast Turns Competitor

This article is a misrepresentation. It's seems to me that tapna yoga trained and supported Maria's career. Then she decides to open up a studio with a name who has been in the news for years. How can a woman today support a name who has been found guilty of multiple issues. Read the news. It seems to me that mrs. Lyons made the right choice. She seems honest has run a respectful business in Burlington for years. It's a shame that her hard work and dedication leads to a article praising someone who supports sexual predators. Marla should be ashamed and the author should be too. Praise people who do good things for Burlington and the residents. Don't praise someone who supports a guy who is a predator.

Re: “A Vermont Surgeon Implants Custom 3D Knees

Only 5% of his patients require physical rehabilitation at all? Or did you mean 5% require it after 6 months?

Re: “A Vermont Surgeon Implants Custom 3D Knees

Good question...a bit concerning that he is the only one doing this. Maybe the other doctors in the state or have not adopted this for a reason. Just because it's new and shiny doesn't mean it's a good thing.

Re: “A Journalist and MS Patient Tries Medical Marijuana

Very sorry to hear about your illness.

Tip: Get a vaporizer- Arizer Extreme Q or Arizer Solo are both good options. The Solo is portable if that is important to you. Clean glass with 91% alcohol, rinse & dry throughly before use (so get spare glass). The glass also tends to break from time-to-time but is chemically the best option unfortunately. I have no affiliation, just sharing friendly advice.

Best wishes @ColdDimSum on Twitter if you have any questions.

Re: “A Journalist and MS Patient Tries Medical Marijuana

Destroying peoples lives over cannabis is just plain stupidity and has nothing to do with relative public safety. If it did, alcohol would be illegal and cannabis would be legal.

I am 59 and have been using cannabis for 42 years. I'm a husband, father, musician, electronics engineer, community volunteer and successful business owner. I vaporize cannabis (no smoke, no smell, no problems). I am in excellent health and I run 25-30 miles per week and finished a Marathon last May in 3hrs, 54mins. I am just the tip of a very large iceberg! Critical mass has been reached! How long do we have to suffer the lies and ridiculous nonsense from a government whose own studies have shown cannabis nearly harmless by comparison to prescription drugs, tobacco and booze??

Legalize, regulate and TAX!

Re: “Ann Zuccardy Turns a Brain Injury Into a New Career

Excellent, well-written piece about an amazing speaker. I so agree that her message is really about the nature of intelligence and how we all live--her injury was the catalyst.
