Allan's Perspective is not recommended for the politically correct, or the overly religious! Some people have opinions, and some have convictions ..., what we offer is Perspective!

Consciousness is not a phenomenon of the observable universe. It is that which makes the universe observable. Consciousness is the physical manifestation of God within us!

This just proves that it takes all kinds of people to make this world, folks.

A 55-year-old Brandon man with an obsession with women's clothing has admitted to breaking into a woman's home four times in 11 years.
He was caught during the fourth break-in when - slipping on gloves  - he entered the woman's home to steal her clothes after previously admiring them.



Well boys and girls, after my two month stay in hospital last January and February (over a month of that on life support) your ever optimistic reporter can certainly sympathize with Joni Mitchel.

Is Joni Mitchell in a coma?

According to a representative for the singer, Joni Mitchell is not in a coma and is expected to make a full recovery.

Rumors about Joni Mitchell’s health began circulating in April 2015 after the singer was admitted to the hospital, including a report published by TMZ stating that the singer had slipped into a coma. However, Leslie Morris, a close friend of Mitchell’s who is currently with the singer in the hospital, has denied the report:
Leslie Morris, who is with Joni in the hospital, has approved the following statement to be made through “Contrary to rumors circulating on the Internet today, Joni is not in a coma. Joni is still in the hospital — but she comprehends, she’s alert, and she has her full senses. A full recovery is expected. The document obtained by a certain media outlet simply gives her longtime friend Leslie Morris the authority — in the absence of 24-hour doctor care — to make care decisions for Joni once she leaves the hospital. As we all know, Joni is a strong-willed woman and is nowhere near giving up the fight. Please continue to keep Joni in your thoughts.”
The music trade publication Billboard has reported that Mitchell was rushed to the hospital earlier this month and was placed in intensive care. The last update on Mitchell’s website, prior to Morris’ statement, came on 3 April 2015:
Sources with Joni in the hospital have approved the following statement to be made through “Joni remains under observation in the hospital and is resting comfortably. We are encouraged by her progress and she continues to improve and get stronger each day.”
Joni Mitchell may not be in a coma, but at the very least she has been in the hospital for close to a month now. Fans of the singer can wish her well on social media by using the #WeLoveYouJoni hashtag.

(Joni must be feeling better because we had a member of the Perspective Research Department phone her ..........., only to be told: "Stop bothering me, don't ya know I'm sick!")


And finally:

'Obesity' Genes Linked to Weak Benefit from Exercise!

Some people may get more benefit than others from doing the same type of exercise, and genes are part of the reason why, a new study finds.

Men and women in the study who had certain genetic markers gained weight after following a strength-training regimen for a year, whereas those  who didn't have those markers lost weight after following the same regimen, researchers said.

The researchers looked at genes that have been linked in previous studies with an increased risk of obesity.

The findings may mean that some people whose genes predispose them to obesity need to do more exercise to get their desired weight-loss results, and may also need to pay more attention to their diet, said study author Yann C. Klimentidis, an assistant professor of epidemiology and biostatistics at the University of Arizona in Tucson.
