I had mine via donor graft back in December. The recovery for that type is a bit slower. I was on crutches for about 6 weeks. I wore the brace for another 2-3 weeks after that.
Now, I'm 16 weeks post op. Still don't want to run yet, but I bike about 50 kilometers a week and lift like normal. ...

I've also had haggis. It's no different than boudin or a good dirty rice and I don't see how it made the list. There are plenty of things around the world that are much more "d...

Although ethnic cleansing of another nation isn't totally unbecoming of God's chosen people if the Old Testament is any indication, there are some problems with that from the Palestinian perspective.

Most American expats don't need to pay taxes back home, as it's only required for individuals making over 90k. However, it's most troublesome for those who have dual citizenship. Even if they haven't lived in the States for years, or never have in the case of children of American expats, they still ...

It only makes sense if LNG exports to Eastern Europe are cheaper that what Putin can sell his natural gas for. I estimate that price to be around $8 per MMbtu. I believe Japan is currently paying -$8/MMbtu for U.S. LNG. Or, Eastern Europe may be willing to pay a premium for western supplies...
