Meeting present and future iReporters in LA

Last week, I had the lucky opportunity to go to Los Angeles to attend the second annual TEDx conference at the University of Southern California. While there, I met with a group of iReporters at the Cat and Fiddle Pub in Hollywood.

 

It was surreal and exciting to meet iReport superstars Al, Roberta, Marie, Melissa M., Melissa F. and David. Because of all of their contributions to the site, I felt like I already knew each of them. Everyone's passion for journalism and storytelling was infectious. It was wonderful to see how many of them already knew each other and, in true iReport-style, the event was well documented, with cameras abound. (You can check out some of TheVideoMan's shots here.)

 

 

At the conference, I had the pleasure of meeting the next generation of iReporters – students from all disciplines with an interest in the news. It was fantastic to meet so many young folks with such big ideas, and I hope to see some of them on the site soon! I left the TEDx event with plenty of inspiration and ideas for future iReport assignments.

 

If you're planning hosting an iReport meetup in your town, let us know! We'd love to see photos and help spread the word.

BOTOX The Big Lie For Migraine.

With the time, when you will know the truth about my migraine pressure points surgery, you will see the big lie about using Botox for migraine. And you will see how silly the idea of plastic surgery for migraine headaches.

Why silly? Because they think that the good results come from muscles removing while the truth is when they remove the muscles they remove with it the branches of extra cranial arteries that cause migraine headaches. Because of this they don’t have 100% very good results, while in my surgery I leave all muscles intact and I close the artery that cause migraine headaches and the results of my surgery 100% very good results.

So what you think silly or not?

I think they know and they cheat migraine patients.

Why they cheat?

Because they remove these muscle for years ago to plastic surgery reasons, so why only after my new migraine discovery that only extra cranial arteries causes all kinds of migraine headaches they noticed that migraine headaches become much better after removal of the head muscles. Even none medical person after my migraine discovery know that if we remove head muscles we will remove at the same time branches of extra cranial arteries so it's normal to have good results for migraine headaches.

They have to say the truth not to cheat about this reality.

Anyone can see how they cheat if he do my migraine pressure points test in time of migraine headaches.
