Made in His Image: Baby's First Breath

Made in His Image: Baby's First Breath
by Randy J. Guliuzza, P.E., M.D.

In 1967 Dr. Christiaan Barnard performed the first heart transplant. Until that time, if someone's heart was taken out, they died. People were astounded to learn that not only was a man’s heart removed, but a non-beating donor heart put in, restarted, and he lived. Years of design efforts and testing resulted in a sophisticated invention that circulated blood and functioned as patients' lungs to bring them oxygen--the all-important "heart-lung" machine.

No doubt in the same hospital in 1967 was a brand-new mother. Her baby had just made a similar transition of survival on an exceedingly better "lung machine," but no reporters covered it. Although the first event was a great feat of human engineering, the second has never been explained by any natural process.

Oliver North : The Raiders -

Oliver North : The Raiders -
Friday, September 18, 2009

According to colleagues back home, our Fox News team here in Afghanistan has missed all the excitement. They note that since we left the USA last month.... But I wouldn't trade a single day with the raiders with whom we have been keeping company for any of that. The "raiders" are an extraordinary cross section of talent, tenacity, experience and courage... Read more ...

Made in His Image: From Solar Energy to Human Energy

by Randy J. Guliuzza, P.E., M.D. -- Acts & Facts. 38 (3): 16.

"Plants use biological systems that harvest light energy from the sun to convert environmental water and carbon dioxide into tiny carbon/hydrogen energy units stored within them. When people eat those energy units, the extraordinary human digestive and metabolic systems convert the work of plants into energy that is useful to people and give back water and carbon dioxide to the environment that can be used by plants. How do these systems make that happen?" Read more...

Nehemiah 9:6

Nehemiah 9:6
Thou, even thou, art LORD alone;
thou hast made
• heaven, the heaven of heavens, with all their host,
• the earth, and all things that are therein,
• the seas, and all that is therein,
and thou preservest them all;
and the host of heaven worshippeth thee.

Marine David Hedrick at Baird Town Hall

HedrickDavid --August 22, 2009
"I, David William Hedrick, a member of the silent majority, decided that I was not going to be silent anymore. So, I let U.S. Congressman Brian Baird have it. I was one questioner out of 38, that was called at random from an audience that started at 3,000 earlier in the evening. Not expecting to be called on, I quickly scratched what I wanted to say on a borrowed piece of paper and with a pen that I borrowed from someone else in the audience minutes before I spoke. So much for the planned talking points of the right wing conspiracy."

Classics of the Christian Faith on CD

Max McLean has recently produced an audio CD set called Classics of the Christian Faith that includes The Conversion of St. Augustine (from Book Eight of His Confessions), Martin Luther’s Here I Stand, John Bunyan’s The Pilgrim’s Progress, Jonathan Edwards’ Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God, and George Whitefield’s The Method of Grace.
Classics of the Christian Faith I bought it, listened to each of them, and rejoiced! The Augustine, Luther, Edwards, and Whitfield items are each on a single CD. Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress is on 5 CD's. I am on my 4th trip through Pilgrim's Progress now.

Highly recommended!

Reunion for iPhone & iPod Touch

This is the reason my wife wanted an iPhone. We have been using Reunion on our Macs for over 10 years, and we are thrilled to now be able to carry our entire genealogy database around in our iPhones!
In fact I have three databases on mine: our large family (over 28,000 people), a smaller one of other families, and one of all the U.S. Presidents.

Right here on my phone I can look up any data I want, view pictures of ancestors, and enter new data or make corrections. Then when I get home I can download and merge the changes into the database on my Mac.

This is by far the most exciting application I have found for my iPhone!
