Unfortunately, my father is post-treatment. They gave him 6 months, he's beyond 3 years, but there isn't much left at this point. The Keytruda off-label was already an experimental treatment that had promise but he eventually succumbed to the cocktail of other meds he has to be on, and couldn't maintain it.

Thanks for the info though!

Moved to Soldotna, looking for friends! by pikeallday21 in alaska

Hey OP:

Fellow Kenai'ian here (live in Kenai) very similar situation, I'm soon to be 30, have a 3 yo daughter, expecting another, moved up a few years back, etc.

Winter is a bit harder. In summer there is some good public activities, particularly in Soldotna (they have a bit more culture than Kenai, IMHO) such as weekly park get-togethers with music, food trucks, etc.

If you are religious or agnostic, churches can be a good option. Life groups, etc. Many work pretty hard at that, and down here it's a bit more religious, so lots of people involved there.

Feel free to PM and I can provide more info if you like.

Moving to Anchorage: Safest neighborhoods? by Rfransoler92 in alaska

That's not really true. I support a family of 3 at ~$40k annual when I first moved up here. I live on K-Pen but we rented which really isn't cheaper, $1,100/mo + our goods are more expensive (sales tax, no Costco, travel cost).

Not saying it wasn't super tight and a bit ugly (and we now have thankfully more breathing room) but if you are money savvy and can budget your pennies it's certainly feasible, it just might be difficult.

Yup, he used Avastin. He was also on off-label use of Keytruda for awhile. Glios are a fucking nightmare, wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy, the end result is a slow slide off a cliff with a combo of basically symptoms related to every other horrific disease known to mankind, with the exception of maybe flesh-eating bacteria.

My father has a glioblastoma, you are right. This gif makes it look far more simple than they are. In his case he was basically left with what could easily be described as the rind of an orange, like they scooped out the guts. The bit that was left got hammered with the traditional radiation/chemo.

The 'girthers' aren't buying Trump's official weight and height by [deleted] in politics

[–]Goose306 9 points10 points  (0 children)

I am literally the exact same measurements his doctor's claim him to be (6'3" - 235). My bodily structure in general is pretty large, so I carry it alright, and I'm younger than Trump, but hot damn, even taking that into consideration, there's no fucking way we weigh the same.

(And I know - I'm working on losing weight. Fucking sedentary desk jobs.)

PERRIS, Calif. (KABC) --

Thirteen victims, ranging in age from 2 to 29 years old, were kept shackled to their beds amid foul surroundings in a Perris home by their parents, sheriff's officials said.

Early Sunday morning, a 17-year-old girl escaped from the residence, located in the 100 Block of Muir Woods Road and called 911 from a cellular device she managed to take from the home, investigators said.

That teen told the 911 operator that she and her 12 siblings were being held captive in their home by their parents.

When investigators from the Perris Police Department and the Riverside County Sheriff's Department met with the girl, they said she looked emaciated and only 10 years old, though she was 17.

After interviewing the girl, investigators contacted her parents, 57-year old David Allen Turpin and 49-year old Louise Anna Turpin at the home from which the teen escaped.

Further investigation revealed several children shackled to their beds with chains and padlocks in dark and foul-smelling surroundings. However, the parents were not able to immediately provide a reason why their children were restrained in that manner.

Deputies located what they believed to be 12 children inside the house - but were shocked to discover that seven of them were actually adults, ranging in age from 18 to 29.

The victims appeared to be malnourished and very dirty. There were 13 victims total -- 12 in the house, and one who escaped and called 911. The victims, who ranged in age from 2 to 29 years old, were transported to the Perris Station and interviewed.

Both parents were detained and transported to the station for further investigation. Child Protective Services and Adult Protective Services arrived to assist in the investigation. The victims were provided with food and beverages after they claimed to be starving.

Both parents were interviewed and subsequently transported to the Robert Presley Detention Center. They were arrested on suspicion of torture and child endangerment.

Bail was set at $9 million each.

James and Betty Turpin of West Virginia, who are David Turpin's parents, told ABC News they are "surprised and shocked" at the allegations against their son and daughter-in-law.

They said they haven't seen the couple since they visited them in California four or five years ago. They keep in touch regularly by phone with David and Louise, but not with the grandchildren. They said their grandchildren are home-schooled.

If you have any relevant information about this ongoing investigation, you're urged to contact Investigator Tom Salisbury at the Perris Station by calling (951) 210-1000 or emailing PerrisStation@RiversideSheriff.org.

I have a few brands here (younger, stupider days) -

Yeah, that is what brands are. If you let them heal straight away then you just went through a brand for basically nothing, because it (usually) isn't going to stick around (everyone scars differently).

The worst part about the brand isn't the burning upfront, it's the 3-6 months you are supposed to purposefully let it not heal, which means every time it starts to scab, peel. Meanwhile, it's effectively a gaping wound on your body, so you have to keep it super clean at all times otherwise you are just begging for an infection.

The fact is, 45.9% of people voted for Trump

This isn't true at all...

The US population in 2016 was ~322,762,018. Trump received, per popular vote, 62,979,636. 22.8% of that total is under the age of 18 (ineligible to vote), so ~249,172,278 eligible voters. That makes approximately 25.3% of voters voted for Trump, not 45.9%. Remember, we don't have compulsory elections.

The 2016 presidential election saw a huge amount of disenfranchised leftist after Hillary won the primary, when many, potentially even a majority, preferred Sanders. When it was leaked he wasn't given a fair treatment, many became disenfranchised, and simply didn't vote. The 2016 presidential vote had historically low voter turnout, which led to the current situation.

This isn't to excuse the current situation. He still is president and that's that (at least until Mueller finishes his investigation, natch) but your vast, overarching assumptions are worrying and what is driving the ultra-nationalism across the globe. It's a shit attitude, I don't like Brexit or UK conservatives, do I stop supporting the individuals in that country? No. There are shitty people in shithole countries everywhere but that doesn't mean we paint them all with a broad brush and write them off.

I'm really wondering how you can mentally reconcile Americans compared to the current political climate in the UK, who also have a not insignificant population who are foreign-hostile. Do you still buy things from France? After all, Marine Le Pen got 33.9% of the vote there (of those who voted).

The president generally represents the views of the population that voted them in.

Full stop, no. You don't understand how the electoral college works (nor, for that matter, things like identity politics and single issue voters, but that's a separate concern). Trump is by far the most unpopular president in the modern presidential era and won with the biggest gap in popularity vote of any president in history. He won because of gerrymandering, not because the majority of Americans voted for him, let alone share similar views as him. Sure, he might represent a certain portion of the population - but that's a pretty small subset, and that's because there are shitty people from shithole countries everywhere, not just the US.

I think some tourism to the states might actually do you some good to understand more how it is over here, as apparently your perspective is quite skewed. It's not like El Presidente's policies are going to cause direct harm to you as a tourist, so saying you wouldn't come because of his stance isn't really a fair comparison to the Iranian Ayatollah.

Most people who have such considerations also understand that remarks from politicians do not necessarily represent the majority as well I would hope.

Think that was more in reference to El Presidente's comments, as otherwise they are just being facetious. Everyone knows there are tons of gorgeous places in the US, as well as some shitty places, just like everywhere else.

TIL 300,000 people is "very small".

Literally largest city in my state is just under 300k (298k). I wouldn't consider it large by any means, but it's also not "very small" I wouldn't think, either - I mean, it has things like the world's 4th busiest cargo airport.

Fairbanks, AK gets that cold (-40°F/C, it's the same) damn near every winter and it's pretty populous (for Alaska, second largest metro area), hell parts of the lower 48 (e.g. Montana) get that way pretty regularly too.

Anything below -50°F is definitely a cold snap though, Fairbanks record low is -58°F, they hit -52°F last winter, this winter has been pretty warm all over here though.
