Walk for PKD (Polycistic Kidney Disease)

I've just that there is going to be a walk in San Francisco. For more information, please read below. Help a man who has been helping our troops through media means. He needs a live kidney donated so that he may live. Please consider donating.
Many of you may already know Mark Glaser. He's a columnist and freelance writer for Mediashift @ PBS.org.

Mark has written several prominent stories about the military and the milblogging community including Your Guide to Soldier Videos from Iraq, `War Tapes` Film Lets Soldiers Tell Their Stories from Iraq, and Milbloggers Upset with Restrictions, But Won`t Stop Blogging.

Over the years, Mark has raised money to help cure polycystic kidney disease (PKD), a hereditary disease that is one of the most common life-threatening genetic diseases, affecting 600,000 Americans and 12.5 million people worldwide.

Mark also has PKD, and he's currently in search of a live kidney donor.

There's a way you can help.

This year, there will be a Walk for PKD in San Francisco, happening a t Crissy Fields on Oct. 23 at 9 am. Mark will be walking and he's hoping you can join or help.

To keep up with Mark's search for a kidney, please visit him on Facebook.

You can also visit him on his personal PKD Foundation page.
My prayers are that someone who reads this will actually take the action necessary to find a match for Mark. God bless you.

May you walk with the LORD always, and when you cannot take another step, may He carry you the rest of the way until you can walk along side Him again.

  3. Middle and high school students in Korea voted miss A’s Suzy and IU as two female celebrities who seem to be bad at math.

    On August 17th, K-Stem, an institute that conducts a scholastic ability test in mathematics, announced the result of the survey asking 220 students to vote for the celebrities who seem to be good/bad at math.

    For the category asking student to vote for celebrities who seem to be good at math, actress Kim Tae Hee ranked first with 43.4% of the votes, and Lee Seung Gi followed with 30.9% of the votes. According to the students, “Lee Seung Gi looks smart and intelligent” and “Kim Tae Hee went to Seoul National University, she is smart for real.”

    On the other hand, for celebrities who seem to be bad at math, Boom ranked first with 45.15% of votes, followed by female idols Suzy and IU who received 29.1% and 22.9% of votes respectively.
