An international team of scientists say they have unearthed the answer in the DNA of ancient teeth and bones.

The genes which protected our ancestors from animal diseases now raise the risk of multiple sclerosis (MS).

The researchers call their discovery “a quantum leap” in understanding the evolution of the disease.

And they say it could change opinions on what causes MS, and have an impact on the way it is treated.


Surely a big deal with far-reaching implications, but I’m not 100% sure what they are. Something to do with ancient cattle herders, beasts and DNA helixes like you see above.

Emmy TV Moment

  • Christina Applegate on the Emmys was a huge moment that increased MS consciousness

Having That Falling Feeling Inside

  • Fell in the house Wednesday at 10:45am. my wife was here.
  • I bled a little from one of the stitches, but didn’t open up and stopped pretty quick when I iced it so I didn’t go to the ER but I think this still counts as a fall
  • If Christina Applegate did it, we would say, “she fell.”

If it’s the last thing I ever do

  • Fellow KFJC DJs reach out to me to take part in stuff, but I can barely make it around my house
  • Moving to San Leandro added 9 minutes and a bridge to what had been a straight shot from east san jose
  • I’m not walking very well
  • I would be there if I could be
  • I need to figure out my wheelchair transport situation

Like a helicopter

  • The wall blew off on that 737 Max 9

Come up off that

  • We got permits for solar last year but we’ve kind of been dragging our feet with the sales people and this year they want to take our money and now I’m getting calls from the operations department

Not a word

Acceptance is key

  • Blog post about disability and acceptance that I thought added valuable perspective to my situation
