The jazz Tubby is a fun and funky number. Tubby, who still plays in his prim and proper orchestra now has his own tune, but is stuck playing oom-pahs most of the time. It's boring. So, armed with his melody, a few oom-pahs, Tubby heads out into the world and learns from a passing jazz band that oom-pahs can be pretty cool. The bonus track, the Story of Celeste, is a lovely tale about a lonely melody who travels to the Singing City for an instrument who will sing her beautiful song. The story has a happy ending because the world has room for all melodies, and sometimes even the loneliest, humblest tune can win the greatest prize

Scientists would be gathering in Rome to discuss stem cell therapy for autoimmune diseases, including MS. A believer in the power of denial and determination over faith and hope, Cohen was caught off guard by what he learned. Medical technology had advanced further and more quickly than Cohen had known. Could there be a chance his health could improve? Could MS be cured? As Cohen took part in a pioneering stem cell protocol, he opened himself to the possibility of hope for the first time in his adult life.Cohen's deep dive into the cutting-edge world of stem cell research and his journalistic investigation of hope includes interviews with doctors, scientists, and religious leaders, as well as conversations with others living with chronic conditions, all with the goal of understanding a hope that is both elusive and alluring.As drily funny as it is emotionally vulnerable, Chasing Hope navigates the fascinating and ever-changing intersection between illness and hope

Hooked on Heroin : from Hollywood to Main Street( Visual )

2 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Heroin isn't a drug only for the rich and famous. Like cocaine in the 1980s, heroin is now attracting the middle class. This ABC News Turning Point porgram examines why some of the most unlikely people have become junkies, like the All-American Boy Scout who "just wanted to try it" and the housewife who was "just going to try it one time". ABC News correspondent Meredith Viera talks with Steven Tyler, lead singer of Aerosmith, who describes what is was like to be down - and to come back up and recover. She also speaks with DEA officers, who ware of the growing epidemic of heroin addiction and to a drug dealer who explains that snorting heroin is gaining popularity because there is no danger of AIDS from dirty needles. The program also explains why the Columbia drug cartels are finding heroin so much more profitable than cocaine. Some of the addicts in this program have recovered, other are recovering, and others still feed their habit while assuring the world they'll recover sometime. The message of this program is clear: heroin is so addictive that you can't just try it. If you can't say no, you'll forever be saying yes
