Psychosurgery: Historic Prefrontal Lobotomies

After learning about the basic structures and functions of the brain, can you believe that historic psychosurgeries involved inflicting brain damage on mentally ill patients?

The cerebral cortex is divided into four different lobes. Each lobe of the brain is responsible for a different job. It is interesting to learn about the location of each lobe and what it does. I was very intrigued by the brain and how different parts of the brain control different functions, such as responding to visual or auditory stimuli.

No Money, No Worries

Here is a poem that reflects on times during a hard financial situation. We have all been there at some point in our lives! After a while, you learn that life is about the things you have, not the money you do not have. It can be a hard lesson to learn, but it is important to realize that you can be happy and broke.

Palmyra Post Office Bust, Not Bomb

After a thorough investigation was conducted into the possible bombing, officials determined that the supposed bomb was no more than a busted packaged. A chemical sealant that was improperly packaged busted in transit. The mess took the better part of a day to investigate. Thankfully the busted package was not a health threat to the community.

Palmyra Post Office Bombed

 

Last week the small town of Palmyra had a big scare. There were rumors of the post office being bombed after a suspicious package popped. The FBI, Post Inspectors, Haz-mat team, bomb-sniffing dogs, state and local police, and fire rescue teams responded to the scene. One of the main roads in Fluvanna was shut down for most of the day while the Haz-mat robot and other officials investigated the possible bomb scene. Citizens feared this event was a terrorist attack or another anthrax scare.

Blogging

I am working really hard to carve out a name for myself in the blogging world. It seems to be working, slowly but surely! For all you wordpress bloggers out there who are interested in working on multiple sites, try Triond! I really like writing in general, but Triond is great because it offers a little residual income on the side. There are many things to write about and it is a very well-known site. There are a lot of viewers and the potential to make some great new friends. I highly recommend giving it a try!
