Preventing Breast Cancer

The single, most effective preventive measure I ever took to decrease my risk of breast cancer was early in life. When I picked the skinny swimmer with the “x,y” as the one to slam into my mummy’s ovum, I came out the other end of the gender lottery as “male.” That reduced my risk of getting breast cancer to nearly nil. Of course, statistically, I have a much higher prospect of prostate cancer and a shorter life span than those who went with the “x,x” package.

I do not seek to make light of breast cancer, an epidemic disease among American women. Rather, it’s important to remember that preventing disease is natural and one way of looking at…

Ameer, That’s Who

The scene is often repeated early in each new Nebraska football season.

A reporter will approach an interview already underway, look at the Husker answering questions, and ask someone on the periphery: “Who’s that?”

The situation is understandable. Coach Bo Pelini’s policy is that those who haven’t played are off-limits, so newcomers and redshirts haven’t been interviewed at Nebraska, meaning a fair number of players aren’t yet familiar to reporters.

Everyone knows the veterans, of course, Rex Burkhead, Taylor Martinez, Baker Steinkuhler, Daimion Stafford, Brett Maher. Just not the new guys or the lower-unit back-ups.

Ameer Adbullah would be in the former category. He’s a sophomore and a running back besides. Even the faces of…

News You Can Use

From too much healthcare to careless docs, some of these recent news stories are worth review.

First do no harm. Ah, yes. If only American medicine would live by that credo then maybe so many wouldn’t die by its hand. Probably the best description of medical care you shouldn’t get is any kind that is a) unnecessary in the first place; b) does harm even when it’s a success or c) the bad outweighs the good. But when do you know if a medical treatment like surgery, for example, is needed? Isn’t it really a cut and dried reality? Well, it turns out that it isn’t. Whether something as dangerous and invasive as surgery is needed or not…

They’re Back

As it usually does in soccer, Creighton’s 2011 men’s soccer season came down to inches. The Jays were one game away, a few penalty kicks actually, from playing for a national title in coach Elmar Bolowich’s first season when Charlotte crashed the party. The 49ers outlasted Creighton, robbing college soccer fans of the match-up everybody waned to see. Bolowich didn’t get to face North Carolina, the powerhouse program he somewhat surprisingly left behind to come to Omaha. The Tarheels went on to win the national title. Creighton went home.

The Jays lost seven starters off that 21-2-1 team, including perhaps the most potent combo in the country in midfielder Ethan Finlay and goalkeeper Brian Holt. With so many…

Great Expectations

Two seasons ago, Alonzo Whaley found himself in the starting lineup at weakside linebacker for the Nebraska football team’s opener against Western Kentucky.

“Found” might seem a curious choice, but consider the situation. “I got thrown into that,” Whaley said, looking back. “It wasn’t the fact that, ‘Oh, he earned it, so he’s going to play.’ ”

Two days before the game, sophomore Will Compton, who had earned the starting job in fall camp, suffered a broken foot. So next man up. And Whaley, also a sophomore, was the next.

He responded with five tackles in the 49-10 victory. But he made enough mistakes that he didn’t start again. He saw limited action in eight more…
