Ex-Pope Ratzinger (née Benedict XVI) Who Turns 90 Tomorrow, Would Have Been 2nd Oldest (Documented) Pope, If He Had Not Resigned.

by Anura Guruge



The problem is that we do not know the birthdates of all the early popes.

In essence, as you can see from my ‘Magic Papal Spreadsheet‘ we only started getting reliable birthdates for popes as of those born 1400 and later. Even then we have an exception. Hence, why all my famous ‘Oldest‘ and ‘Youngest‘ records when it comes to popes always carry the caveat ‘as of 1400‘.

Benedict XVI, if he had not resigned, would have been the 2nd oldest pope as of 1400.

Do You Have Chronic Pain — That Is Widespread, Confusing & Treatment Resistant.

by Anura Guruge



If you constantly struggle with confounding pain you may have Central Pain Syndrome (CPS) and not know about it.

Doctors are often reluctant to tell you that your pain may be due to Central Pain – since it is a condition that is difficult to explain and rationalize.

Intense chronic pain, widespread and varied, that appears to be treatment-resistant, and often accompanied by burning, numbness, stiffness, itching, or pins-and-needles, may very well be CPS.

What you may have believed was Fibromyalgia might actually be CPS – though this is not of major consequence since the treatment options for both are essentially the same.

CPS, however, is not due to inflammation or injury to a muscle, tendon, bone or joint. Central Pain Syndrome is a disorder of the Central Nervous System (i.e., the brain, brainstem and spinal cord) due to a prior violation; e.g., spinal surgery, brain injury, herniated disc, pinched nerve, stroke, etc.

If you have been suffering from intense pain for a longtime, with weird sensations and discomfort, from different parts of the body, that comes and goes – accompanied by growing emotional distress – you need to find out about CPS: especially if all of this started a few months after you had a neck injury, spinal surgery, concussion, a tumor or infection. There are many who actually suffer from CPS without realizing it is CPS that is responsible for their confusing and confounding misery.

CPS, though deemed not life-threatening, is, unquestionably, life altering, and not so for the better. CPS can be so crushing that it affects not only those suffering from it, but all of those around them.

CPS is infuriating. CPS has been associated with pain so off the scale that it has been referred to as ‘indescribable’ – way beyond that of a dentist accidentally hitting an unnumbed nerve. The pain and discomfort of CPS, so real though it maybe, is not due to any treatable injury, inflammation or infection! That is very hard to come to terms with. But, it is real pain.

CPS is an after-effect of some trauma that happened previously to the brain, neck or spinal column. This trauma, probably due to the intensity, duration and volume of the initial pain, causes the central nervous system to malfunction. That is what CPS, currently said to be incurable, is all about.

CPS, like its twin, fibromyalgia, is, not as yet well studied or understood. CPS tends to be a taboo condition – often overlooked and unspoken by doctors, though it is known that there are millions who suffer from CPS. This book will help you become an expert on CPS – and seek treatment that best helps you, given that the symptoms of CPS will always be specific to you.

Ex-Pope Ratzinger (née Benedict XVI) Turns 90 Tomorrow, April 16, 2017, Easter Day — 4th Time His Birthday Has Been On Easter.

by Anura Guruge



He was born in Marktl, Germany on April 16, 1927 — which was Easter Saturday.

This year, when he turns 90, it will be ON Easter Day.

But his birthday has fallen on Easter Day 3 other years: 1933 (when he was 6), 1995 (when he was 68) & 2006 (when he was 79).

His 2006 birthday, which was on Easter, was his first as Pope!

He was elected pope in 2005, 3 days after his 78th birthday.

Easter 2006. His 79th birthday and first as pope.

‘Lion’ (2016) Movie, About Lost Indian Boy, Now Available For Rent, $5.99, On Amazon Video.

by Anura Guruge


Click image to access IMDb.com listing for movie.


Click to ENLARGE for proof that we did rent it on Amazon video.


Just giving you a heads up because the RENTAL OPTION for ‘Lion’ seems a bit elusive on Amazon Prime at least for now.

 

We found the rental option via Roku search rather than on Amazon Prime Video.

Glad we did. We did want to watch it.

Great movie BUT I do have some comments that I will write about in a separate post.

Given that Amazon rentals are only valid for 48-hours (once you start watching) we had to end up renting it TWICE — since it took us 2.5 evenings to finish watching it. No big deal. Still cheaper than going to a cinema to see it.

Definitely worth watching. Very moving.
