My mom, Joan McNulty, died from colorectal cancer. It isn't on of those "glamorous" cancers that you hear so much about, mostly because I think people are more comfortable talking about breasts and lungs than they are colons and rectums.
50,000 people a year die from colorectal cancer, and it is very treatable if detected early!
In order to help lower that number I'm running the 2017 Philadelphia Indy 5K this September. All donations go to help the Colon Cancer Alliance to get the word out, fund research, and help someone else's mom not die from this type of cancer.
Dieter Bohn in his review of the Surface Laptop (which looks pretty neat):
One small note for potential Mac switchers: even though I find many of the third-party apps on Windows deficient compared to their Mac equivalents, the gap is closing. And Microsoft's own apps like Mail and Calendar are quite good.We've come a long, long way when someone reviewing a Windows machine mentions that Mac users won't have too much trouble finding replacement apps on Windows. What a world!
