  • Paralyzed Dogs Walk Again With Nose Cell Transplant

    Meet Jasper, an amazing canine success story. Jasper is an English dachshund that was suffering with a spinal injury and unable to use his back legs. His owners volunteered him for a trial at Cambridge University to see whether cells from a dog's nose can improve the nerve connections in its spine. Doctors found that the olfactory ensheathing cells (OECs) support nerve fiber growth connecting the nose to the brain and also regenerate nerve fibers in damaged spinal cords. After six months of walking on a treadmill, Jasper's owners say he now "whizzes around the house." Researchers hope that this might lead to advancement toward a cure for human spinal-cord injuries

  • Was Diane Sawyer Drunk During ABC’s Election Coverage?

  • Am I the Only One Who Loves Election Day?

    It's almost like Christmas eve for me as I anticipate the election results. The whole political process excites me. That appreciation was instilled in me at an early age. It started when I was in grade school. I campaigned for candidates by placing their business cards, explaining their stand various issues, in the screen doors of all our neighbors. SO long before the internet. Later I graduated to the illustrious position of posting the chalk numerals on the chalk board in the Election Commissioner's Office in front of the glare of TV cameras. Speaking of the media glare...here are celebrities and who they are backing today...http://www.cnn.com/interactive/2012/05/politics/celebrity.endorsements/index.html

  • You Probably Can't Wear The Costume Voted "World's Best"

    Josh Sundquist is well-known as a motivational speaker who recovered from his loss of a leg to cancer at age 9 to ski in the Paralympics. Today he's roundly winning the global contest for the best Halloween costume. It's inspired by the infamous leg lamp from holiday classic "A Christmas Story," which featured an ornery dad obsessed with his fringed table lamp in the shape of a leg. "I had to shave my leg, but I think it was worth it," Sundquist wrote on his Facebook page. This isn't Sundquist's first Halloween rodeo: He won similar applause after going as "Amputee Gingerbread Man" in 2010.

  • No Traffic Lights...Dream or Nightmare?

    My friend Roseann lives in Jersey. Her mom lives in a neighboring town in a care facility. Rose cannot get though on the phone to her due to Superstorm Sandy. She will drive to see her today. Alas, all the traffic lights in Hudson county are out. So, I had to ask myself. if we treated every intersection as a 4-way stop, would that save time or cost us time? Major intersections with multiple lanes would be a real pain. Do you think everyone remembers that when two cars arrive simultaneously at an intersection with no traffic light...the one on the right has the right-a-way? Shott me an email with your thoughts...jharrison@1045thefox.com

  • Flooded Subways, Electrical Outages..I feel for the people in Sandy's Path

    Hurricane Sandy may only be a category one hurricane, but that seems like it packs quite a punch to me. There are warnings that 11-foot tall waves might result in flooding in the lower part of Manhattan....can you imagine flooded subways/...they are the lifeblood of the city. My friend on Long Island says she is holding steady and not going to evacuate even though she is just barely outside the area from which evacuation is required. The entire Eastern seaboard will likely be affected in some way. Let's keep all of our fellow Americans and visitors to this country in our thoughts and prayers.

  • Doors Guitarist Robby Krieger Says Band's New Live at the Bowl '68 Video Is "Amazing Looking"

  • Don't you hate it when..

    So dopey me, wasn't sure what kind of cake to buy/make for Phil's birthday. I know chocolate was out...so what to do...there are a lot of people at our office so I decided to buy a white cake and make a pineapple upside down cake. So, I punt nap time and toil to make a pineapple upside down cake. Instead of the usual small 8 X 8...I double the recipe and make a 9 X 13...great until it comes time to flip the hot cake (Must be hot for a successful flip. I've done it a hundred times) Well...the tray I was using for this was considerably bigger than 9X13 and you can imagine...the flip failed and the cake broke in half...sure I tried putting back together...no luck. I think my husband was happy...he got to eat it...and Phil liked the white cake. Sorry co-workers, first come, first served on the white cake. Anyone else had similar failures? Email me at jharrison@1045thefox.com.

  • I can't help it, this grosses me out

    I read recently than men spend about 25 minutes more per week in the bathroom than women do. That was then our "Quirky question" on Oct. 23rd. I said that "for some reason, I don't know exactly why, magazine racks in the bathroom gross me out". A listener has interpreted that to mean I am telling him what to do, which was not my intent. As a way of apology, I am willing to read him anything he chooses through the bathroom door and I'll even clean the bathroom. I am messaging him on facebook to make the offer. I will let you know what he says...He does have a pumpkin in a Jason Hockey mask as his profile pic on FB, but I think that is just a Halloween reference.

  • Thank You FBI

    Great work by the Feds yesterday, thwarting an attempt to blow-up the Federal Reserve. How many websites, etc. must the feds have to watch to prevent terrorist attacks? The Feds were great, managed to contact a guy from Bangladesh who was wanting explosives etc. to commit a heinous crime against America...they furnished him with fakes and when he tried to go through with his diabolical plan they swooped in and arrested him. I love it! Do we give enough props to the FBI, The ATF, the CIA as well as local law enforement?
