Carolyn Porco: This is Saturn
Saturn appears as one of the 5 planets visible with the unaided eye. If Saturn is in the sky at night, you can head outside and see it. To see the rings and the ball of the planet itself, you’ll want to peer through a telescope. But you can amaze your friends and family by pointing out that bright star in the sky, and let them know they’re looking at Saturn. If i could ony see saturn with naked eye, i would immediately grab my camera and save them in my PassedOn account so that in the future, my children, grandchildren, will inherit these memories i have saved for them in my digital diary. I'm glad i'm a new member of this. See for yourself, start saving unbelievable memories, interesting science facts and post them. Just visit wwww.passed-on.com and write your amazing experiences like witnessing saturn in your own naked eyes.

Dean Ornish: Your genes are not your fate
I strongly agree that what we eat affects our genes and it's in our control to change them. The body responds and remodels to fit its current environment. When you start to feed the body foods that it doesnt recognize, it responds with genetic switching to accommodate the new foods. It may or may not respond correctly. When it responds incorrectly you have disease. It may be the Metabolic Syndrome diseases. It may be cancer. It's making it's best guess based on its memory of the past. Packaged and processed foods lack the synergy and total nutrition of fresh wholesome foods. They are but chemically enhanced zombies of what was once real food. Our genes can be affected by everything we do especially bad habits. I remember my friend who has a hobby of posting his photos with her PassedOn account. Every food she eats (in a restaurant, fast food chains) always posted in there and she's unaware that she's getting obessed so i told her to change her lifestyle and she agreed. So now she's posting many photos again, videos eating foods (but this time, they're organic and home-made) and she started to become more confident showing these nice photos, videos she made. She's thankful that with her PassedOn account, became a guide on how bad her eating habit is. "coz she can see all these photos, every detailed is recorded in there. My curiosity lead me to sign up with that free web-based digital diary. So i visited www.passed-on com and also started logging my eating habits, my food intakes, then later, evaluating myself if i'm feeling good after seeing improvements about myself. You too can change your genes even if it's hereditary, it's beyond your control and faith.

Mina Bissell: Experiments that point to a new understanding of cancer
Our body is made up of 100 million million cells. Cancer can start when just one of them begins to grow and multiply too much. The result is a growth called a tumour. Benign tumours are localised growths - they only cause problems if they put pressure on nearby tissues, such as the brain. Much more serious are malignant tumours, which invade the surrounding body tissues. I think cancer also develops by emotional stress, depression and not just polluted environment, lifestyle, hereditary or acquired from poor diet. We all have immune system that may balance our body fron getting rid out of toxins, it's because we also have the power to control it. It depends to our kind of environment. If not, we will suffer from undetected cancer cells while enjoying unhealthy lifestyle. Thinking to suffer from this makes me feel weak. I have lot things to do, my son is only 1 1/2 y.o., What if i have cancer..Oh no!! I should begin fixing things, saving money for his education 'coz i don't now where to begin if i didn't survive.Maybe i wll also start to write my eWills/last words at www.passed-on.com so that if anythng happened to me after 20years, my baby can cherish all of the good memories i saved in there. I won't worry if GOD allows me to suffer from cancer. I'm getting too paranoid just to think of acquiring it.

Brian Goldman: Doctors make mistakes. Can we talk about that?
It's hard to accept that even your closest relative who' s a doctor may contribute for the death of your 1st baby. I won't never ever forget..8 1/2 mos. pregnant. I was curious why i'm getting much bigger. So i asked my auntie (Ob-Gynecologists), then she remembered to request a glucose test/fbs on the other day, so i did. My dark moments has began. My baby is no longer moving, no activity movement..So i rushed into the hospital, then the nurse took the heartbeat of the baby and she said, it's still moving but I regret 'coz i don't feel anything. Later, they discovered that it was a meternal beat and not my baby's heartbeat. So my Aunt decided to save the baby by having CS operation. I can hear that she's pumping the baby, eager to save her. I'm in general anesthesia but i couldn't help it to discover what's happening. Then i heard the pediatrician and said that the baby didn't survive because she has diabetes which she acquired from me. I was shocked! I have gestational diabetes and my doctor who happens to be my relative didn't focus in evaluating my condition. My husband wants to sue her for her mistakes but i couldn't speak and doesn't want to eat. All i wanna do in my room is cry..cry...cry.......I almost wanted to die that time. What my Aunt did, she was very affected too..she didn't go for the wake of my baby girl, nor attend the interment because she knew that most people there will talk about the mistakes she did for her niece..-that's me. So, she decided to live and work in the U.S with her family..maybe to forget and get out of the issue. Until now, it's very painful for me to think way back......So when i discovered PassedOn, it touched my heart, I started signing up and made a diary for all the bitterness and good things happened into my life. 'Coz i couldn't do it in facebook..I don't want either to show my real feelings about that tragedy so i think this experience needs a privacy, it should be kept and entrust with www.passed-on.com

Seth Shostak: ET is (probably) out there -- get ready
When it comes to extraterrestrial life, science is diametrically opposed to the evolutionary mentality. We currently have no evidence of alien life-forms. This problem is not lost on the secular scientists. In some cases a belief in ETs may stem from a feeling of cosmic loneliness: “If there are aliens, then we would not be alone in the universe.” In many cases it comes from an academic desire to learn the mysteries of the universe; a highly developed alien race might have advanced knowledge to pass on to us. Perhaps such knowledge is not merely academic; the hypothetical aliens may know the answers to fundamental questions of existence: “Why am I here? What is the meaning of life?” and so on. An advanced alien race might have medical knowledge far exceeding our own—knowledge which could be used to cure our diseases. Perhaps their medical technology would be so far advanced that they even hold the secret of life and death; with such incredible medical knowledge, perhaps human beings would no longer have to die—ever.. The argument is that alien spacecraft could not be explained by a natural phenomenon. Therefore, it is suggested that witnessing something that cannot be explained naturally must prove the existence of alien spacecraft. This is a logical fallacy called “affirming the consequent.” If i encounter et's, i would love to write them in my digital diary so that my children, grandchildren in the future may see that there's a kind of living matters like that. It's good to save them in my PassedOn account. So that when i die, all things that i witnessed way back will be cherished forever and thanks to this wonderful concept of www.passed-on.com.

Mike Rowe: Learning from dirty jobs
Making a living out of dirty jobs is not an issue at all..I respect people who's engaged with this kind of work. At least, they have integrity to do it and proud to show that instead of finding illegal jobs, they wouldn't mind earning from dirty jobs 'coz they need to feed their families and create unconditional happiness which are bound for contentment. I remember my neighbors, even working as a janitor doesn't stopped him to reach his dreams. Every details is written in his digital diary called PassedOn. Until he reached the doors to success and promoted as a Plant Supervisor. It's really true that great things starts from small beginnings. And while cherishing his success, he doesn't forget where he came from and still proud to say "I did the right job". He showed me how he created good memories by saving photos, videos with PassedOn website while working as a janitor/toilet cleaner, etc...It amazed me so much that he has time to value each stages of his life and he shared me this www.passed-on.com which he saved his memorable moments while working dirty jobs. Having a dirty job doesn't mean it's a hindrance to one's success. They also need respect and dignity, not discrimination. Mike Rowe's show has enlightened me a lot to be fair dealing with people who are engaged in these dirty jobs.
