Can the Common Cold Kill You; polyDNA Reviews the Literature and Recommends Gene-Eden-VIR and Novirin Against the Latent Cold Virus
by BWW News Desk - May 30, 2014

According to polyDNA's latest survey, only 26% of participants knew that a new strain of the common cold “adenovirus,” can cause severe symptoms and may lead to death. A new strain of adenovirus termed adenovirus 14 or Ad14 “appeared in several outbreaks (2005, 2007, 2008 and 2009-10 in Ireland) and …caused severe pneumonia and deaths in several different groups of individuals.” (See MedicineNet.com, last reviewed April 1, 2014) (1). Health professionals then named it “The Killer Cold Virus.” This term was used because, “in most people, adenoviruses cause symptoms of the common cold, not severe pneumonia or death (1).” Additionally, “Adenovirus 14 (Ad14) is termed the killer cold virus because of the high incidence of hospitalizations and deaths attributed to the viral strain (1).” (more...)

Local Author to Release THE DARK ERA, October 2014
by BWW News Desk - May 29, 2014

t almost sounds unreal: At the beginning of World War II, a man is taken from his home in Poland and made to work as a slave; he escapes, lives in a forest for months then joins up with the resistance against Nazi occupation; before somehow making his way out of the country at the end of the war and finding himself in Britain. And yet, all of this did actually happen and it is a story that is soon to be immortalised in a novel called 'The Dark Era' (released in October 2014). The author is this man's grandson, James Eddy, and he plans to release the book independently by making use of the financial assistance of a crowdfunding campaign. 'It's not been an easy story to tell,' Eddy explains, 'There are details that we know about my granddad's life but it's mainly in Fragments. That was partly because he was a man who kept things to himself and also because in the final years of his life he suffered from Alzheimer's.' For this reason a decision had to be made about whether and how the story could be told. 'Writing it as a non-fiction book wasn't really an option. There wasn't enough to work with but I wanted to tell this story. It wasn't just for my granddad. It was also for the people of Poland, who went through so much during the war. The story of their sacrifice has largely been forgotten or ignored.' The other problem that Eddy encountered was in marketing and promoting the book ahead of its release. 'I made a decision early on that I would release the book independently. I have some experience in this after releasing a collection of short stories and a novella in the same way. The problem with this is that 'The Dark Era' is a book that deserves a larger audience than I was capable of giving it if I simply released it without much promotion.' That was when he started looking into the idea of crowdfunding to increase his budget. 'The idea behind crowdfunding is that, for a set period of time, people can pledge money in return for various rewards that range, in this case, from e-book copies of the book to a day spent on a guided tour of the locations in the story. For 'The Dark Era' there are about a dozen different rewards in total and the campaign will run until Wednesday 18th June. Hopefully it will help me to get this story out to as many people as possible to provide a fitting tribute to my granddad and the people of Poland.' James Eddy was born in Braintree, Essex in April 1980. After moving first to Colchester, Essex, his family settled in South Norfolk and it has been his home more or less ever since. Following University, he started writing fiction. Since 2012 he has written a collection of interconnected Short Stories called 'Diamonds' and a Novella called 'In Dreams'.

SOMETIME BETWEEN NOW AND WHEN THE SUN GOES SUPERNOVA Set for Théâtre Aux Ecuries, Now thru 5/30
by BWW News Desk - May 28, 2014

Created in 2013 in Calgary, Sometime between now and when the sun goes Supernova is Mark Lawes' new multidisciplinary bilingual creation for a hyper-accelerated world, where the familiar rubs shoulders with the strange. Inspired by Marshall McLuhan's theories on media which essentially predicted the internet 50 years before its application, Sometime between now and when the sun goes Supernova is an inquest, one that investigates manifestations of personal isolation in an increasingly connected globalized world. The performers are caught on the soundstage of a B-horror movie or a pornographic film; yet the setting could be a suburban home. Amnesia flirts with psychosis in a world where we feel the convulsions of a hyperactive, digital, consumer society. Sometime between now and when the sun goes Supernova will be presented at Theatre Aux Ecuries from May 28-30. (more...)

Can EBV Cause Arthritis; polyDNA Answers Survey Question and Recommends Gene-Eden-VIR and Novirin Against the Latent Epstein Barr Virus
by BWW News Desk - May 12, 2014

polyDNA's latest survey revealed that 36% of respondents with arthritis wanted to know if EBV is the cause of their disease. One study found that “In latent and replicating forms, it (EBV) has immunomodulating actions that could play a role in the development of this autoimmune disease (arthritis).” (See Arthritis Research & Therapy, published in 2006) (1). Other viruses are also linked to arthritis. “Infections that can trigger reactive arthritis include… viral infections that can cause a sore throat, cough or skin rash… (and) … the infection may be mild and soon forgotten, but it may still trigger an arthritis.” (See Patient.co.uk, last updated on March 15, 2012) (2). polyDNA therefore recommends that individuals with arthritis ask their doctors for an EBV blood test. If positive, they should talk to their doctors about Gene-Eden-VIR and Novirin. The formula of these natural antivirals was shown to reduce EBV symptoms in two separate clinical studies that followed FDA guidelines. (more...)

PULSE FESTIVAL: Made In China
by Guest Blogger: Pulse Festival - Jun 5, 2014

Made In China make theatre that playfully explores the paradoxes of modern identity, by crossing the borders between playwriting and performance art. Our latest show, Gym Party, on at Pulse this Saturday, does so by exploring a particularly big, messy and (we think) universal paradox: our often-secret desire to beat the very people we identify with or need to work with. We made Gym Party with the support of Pulse festival, who co-commissioned it, but also with the support of Pulse's audience, who got to experienced a pretty deranged work-in-progress of the show as we were making it last year.
