The last real treatment taking care of this neurological condition was introduction of L-dopa in 1964. During the last fifty years there have been tremendous achievements in diagnosis of this neurological problem, from CT scan, to Functional MRI. There are a wide variety of diagnostic instruments, however the treatments have been marginal and there has been no real breakthrough until now.
Friday, March 26, 2010 Iranian People's Struggle for Freedom, Part VI: The1953 MI6 - CIA, Coup in Iran (10 comments)
I am convinced that the 1953 MI6/CIA coup had the most massive, irreversible, and destructive, impact on all the countries of the Middle East as well as the United States. The damage is so profound and so horrific that its unintended consequences will never get buried in history books. Nothing has changed. The U.S. continues to befriend the trash of the Middle East.

Saturday, January 23, 2010 The Iranian People's Struggle for Freedom, Part IV. Socialism (1)
The blowback from the severe dictatorship of the last 100 years is the main cause of the attraction to socialism. Although the socialist movements consisted of very small cells, the long border with the Soviet Union and the strong desire of Russians to get to the Persian Gulf modified these sporadic movements to serious uprisings which could have easily turned Iran into one of the Soviet Republics.

Saturday, January 9, 2010 Demonstrations in Tehran: (2 comments)
It was the day of "Ashura" - the most sacred day of the Shiite sect of Islam. Ashura is a day dedicated to those who knowingly choose martyrdom for the cause of God and would not give in to those who are in position of power. This Ashura was not the usual mourning of the saints who were killed 1400 years ago. This year there was a real rebellion against the forces of evil.

Sunday, June 17, 2007 Shiites, Sunnis and George Bush (7 comments)
In dealing with the current problems of the Middle East, obviously it is quite important to understand the differences between Shiites and Sunnies. Furthermore, with the addition of the American presence, this situation has become more complicated. Unfortunately, there is very little in-depth analysis of this topic, leaving the impression that these are just a bunch of primitive people who just like to fight.

Tuesday, January 9, 2007 Harb vs. Ghazveh; Why the U.S.is not winning in Iraq
The term for war in Arabic is "harb" like battles of Second World War. But the most common form of fighting among Arabs is not a "harb" It is a "ghazveh", which means raid. That is when a small group of men attack the other group fast and get away with whatever they can. Historically Arabs have been better in raids than battles, and that was the battle plan that Saddam laid.
