Breakthrough treatment for Hemianopia 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.

Iranian People's Struggle for Freedom, Part VI: The1953 MI6 - CIA, Coup in Iran 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.

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.

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.
