Insomnia Cookies

Efter att ha suttit och kollat på satisfying food på instagram alldeles för länge hittade man insomnia cookies som råkade ligga just i Lexington. På Journalism ska vi ha en liten del där man gör en review på något och vi valde att göra den på just dessa kakor. Perfekt sätt att blanda ihop nöje med skola. Vi tog därför bilen till Lexington idag efter skolan och beställde åtta olika kakor från Insomnia Cookies, som vi fyra sedan delade på. Vi fick de direkt och de kom direkt från ugnen. Mina absoluta favoriter var de som var Deluxe Cookies, där smakerna var Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup (absoluta favoriten), S’mores och Triple Chocolate. Verkligen ett ställe värt att besöka om man är kaksugen!!

ICYMI: Applefest Weekend Edition 

Applefest is a thing in my small town, like the most giant tchotchke/food/car/etc festival a small town could hope to put on. So for three  days we have walked till we dropped, only instead of dropping I'm going to sit here and pass along some worthwhile reading from the last week.

The Unmet Promises of a New Orleans Charter School

From The Nation, one more example of how charters in NOLA never quite lived up to the hyped promises that were made.

I Think My Bladder Changed

From Yahoo Lifestyle's series of interviews with teachers who left the field. Short, but utterly recognizable.

Let's Review Matt Bevin's Plan To Undermine Public Education In Kentucky 

The Lexington Herald Leader is not having it with Kentucky's pro-privatization governor, and here is the whole breakdown of his program (recogizable from plenty of other states, unfortunately)

Craziness: How Mongomery's First Charter School Has Devolved Into Chaos In Less Than Six Weeks 

Not enough supplies or teachers and a principal who has already been pushed to an angry resignation by the board. LEAD is a mess under a loader who asserts that charters don't have to follow laws. The Alabama Reporter has the whole wretched story. Oh, and as a bonus, there's a Gulen tie, too.

Teachers Won't Embrace Research Until It Embraces Them

The Right To Read project looks at how the "reading science" crew treat teachers, and how that seems unlikely to engender teacher loyalty or acceptance.

What's Wrong With Assigning Books--And Kids--Reading Levels

Reporters at the Washington Post books section provide yet another reminder that Lexile scores are not vert reliable or trustworth. Some concrete examples, including the one showing that Diary of a Wimpy Kid is a higher Lexile score than The Grapes of Wrath or The Sound and the Fury.

Black Male Teachers Have Positive Effects On Students of All Races

Nice little op-ed from a former Black male teacher.

Inside the Koch's Vision for Public Education

Have You Heard interviews the author of Kochland about what exactly the Kochs want to see in public education (spoiler alert: less of it).

It's Not A Flashdrive

If you are a teacher, the odds are good that there's at least one student vaping in your classroom, right in front of you. The indispensable Mercedes Schneider has collected some of the info you need to catch up on this newer trend.

UK Polk Dalton Clinic Creates Educational Series for Patients

 Cache   

The UK Polk Dalton Clinic is launching a new educational outreach program that will tackle tough topics, including a variety of issues identified as barriers to living healthy and happy lives.

The “First Fridays Family Education Series” will be held at the clinic on the first Friday of each month and will feature local experts who will speak on wide-ranging topics that influence individuals every day.

There are many factors that contribute to the health of a community, including economic stability, access to education and healthcare and employment opportunities. Dr. Kim Thompson, a physician at the UK Polk Dalton Clinic and assistant professor of Medicine in the University of Kentucky College of Medicine, said their clinical staff are constantly looking for ways to reduce the impact of these social determinants on their patients.

After screening patients for about a month, clinical staff found parenting issues –emotional health in teens, preventing substance use and abuse, sex education, cyber safety, and nutrition and wellness, among others – were among the most important to address, hence the idea to create the First Fridays series. 

“We recognize the invaluable work that others are engaged in to further support the population we serve,” Thompson said. “Through collaborating with many of these community partners on this program, we will be able to more effectively address a range of needs to provide valuable educational services right here in our own back yard.”

The first event, set to start at 5 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 4, will feature Detective Anthony Young, who works in the Crimes Against Children Unit with the Lexington Police Department. Young will talk about the new social world children are growing up in and will explore related topics, like cyber bullying, social media and keeping personal information private.

Those who attend the events will have the opportunity to talk one-on-one with the speaker during and after the hour-long conversation.

“We are so proud of what we do and the community that we serve,” Thompson said. “This exciting new program will provide essential education to our patients and community members who live around us.”

These events will be held on a seasonal basis. The following is a list of topics on the Fall schedule.

Oct. 4, 2019: Cyber Safety – The world we grew up in is very different than the new social world our children are growing up in. We will explore topics related to cyber bullying, social media, keeping personal information private and many more. This event will be led by Detective Anthony D. Young, Crimes Against, Children Unit of the Lexington Police Department.

Nov. 1, 2019: The Hidden Dangers of e-Cigarette Use – This discussion, led by Thompson, will explore current trends in tobacco-related produce use among teens and preteens along with a special presentation by a UK college group called “Tobacco-Free Take Action.” The goal is to correct the false “no-cost” mentality regarding vaping and to empower younger generations to end the trend of e-cigarette use among their peers as health advocates.

Dec. 6, 2019: Parenting Your Adolescent Teenagers – Jill Blackman, a guidance specialist at Crawford Middle School, will discuss how to identify and parent through emotional issues during the teen year, how to use positive behavioral supports and techniques to keep kids productive and avoid parent-child power struggles, how to empower our kids to resist negative social pressure, how to talk to your kids if you suspect they are in trouble and much more.

Markey Surgeon Fights Breast Cancer at Work – and at Home

 Cache   

At just eight years old, Emily Marcinkowski already knew she wanted to be a doctor.

As the only child to a single mother who worked as an OR nurse, Emily often tagged along to the hospital during her mom’s shift. It was there, she says, where she first became fascinated with medicine.

By the time she was 10, Emily had already chosen her career path: she wanted to be a surgeon. After completing medical school and residency training in general surgery, she zeroed in on her goal even further: surgical oncology.

“In residency, we did a lot of surgical oncology,” Emily said. “I learned that surgeons aren’t just people who swoop in, save the day, and never see their patients again. I loved being able to walk alongside patients. You really become part of their lives.”

During her five years of general surgery training, she led a National Institutes of Health-funded study on triple negative breast cancer that ultimately produced a drug that targets a pathway in that aggressive, deadly disease. She followed that training with a two-year fellowship in complex surgical oncology, finishing up on June 30, 2016 – a date she jokingly refers to as “graduating the 29th grade.”

Ready to start her career as a breast surgical oncologist, Emily and her husband, Tim, began figuring out where they wanted to start the new chapter in their lives. Lexington’s location was an advantage, by virtue of its proximity to their respective families, but Emily says the University of Kentucky Markey Cancer Center’s National Cancer Institute (NCI) designation was an attractive selling point to her: the type of cancer center where she would be able to offer the best possible care with the most options and novel therapies.

She chose Markey and began her UK career in July 2016.

“So here I am,” she said. “I finally get to start my life. Now what?”

And life happened: after a successful first year at UK, Emily discovered she was pregnant. On Feb. 2, 2018, she gave birth to a healthy baby boy named Henry. Nearing the end of her maternity leave, she prepared to return to UK and her surgical career.

And then, life happened again.

*****

April 24, 2018:  With just under a week to go until she returned to the world of scrubs and scalpels, Emily practiced what many multi-tasking new moms learn to master: pumping breast milk while driving. While waiting in the drive-thru line at Starbucks – where she ordered a “pink drink” because she’d heard rumors that it can help increase breast milk production – she detached her pump and noticed something unusual.

A lump. One that hadn’t been there before.

“So I think, ‘clearly it’s just a blocked duct,’” she said. “I’ll just milk it out.”

But the next day, the lump remained. She asked Tim to feel it, just to be reassured that she wasn’t imagining things. She knew that it was likely to be nothing – blocked ducts are common in breastfeeding moms – but couldn’t shake her concern. Just two years prior, her best friend had encountered the same problem. And Emily had been the one to diagnose this friend with breast cancer.

She came back to Markey – this time as a patient, not a physician. After an ultrasound and a biopsy, she had her answer.

“I'm not a radiologist,” she said. “But I've looked at enough ultrasounds to know what I was looking at."

Diagnosis: Stage IIB breast cancer. Emily was just 37 years old.

*****

Statistically speaking, one of every three Americans will be diagnosed with some form of cancer in their lifetime. One of every eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer.

Emily had spent years surrounding herself with breast cancer, training to help other women fight the very disease she now faced, and she hated “being a statistic.” Nevertheless, the experience was giving her new insight for her career.

“I’ve always looked up to my patients,” she said, noting that they undergo sometimes exhausting and painful physical treatments, but continue to come back to their appointments for more… even when “we literally make you feel your worst.”

But faced with her own life-changing diagnosis, she understood.  

“I remember being excited to get the chemo,” she said. “I was nervous about the potential side effects, but excited to kill some cancer. So I get it now why patients keep showing up.”

She underwent six cycles of chemotherapy at Markey, receiving her infusion once every three weeks. Toward the end of her first cycle, her hair began falling out. As a physician, she had previously counseled patients to try not to worry much about their hair loss as a way to reassure them. She no longer makes the same mistake.

“I used to say, ‘It’s just hair, it will grow back,’” she said. “No. It’s part of your identity. Breast cancer takes away two major parts of our identity as women – our breasts and our hair.”

After her second cycle of chemotherapy, she developed painful ulcers in her mouth and her platelet levels dropped. She began receiving blood transfusions to get her body healthy enough to continue receiving the medicine. She had wanted to continue working throughout her chemotherapy course, as many patients try to do, but the treatments left her drained.

“It beat my butt,” she said. “The fatigue is unreal.”

After finishing her therapy, she was faced with choices for her surgery:  breast-conserving surgery or mastectomy? Reconstruction or not?

It was this exact thing – the ability to be able to give patients some options and autonomy toward their own care – that drew her to a career focusing on breast cancer surgery in the first place.

“I have often talked to my patients about how cancer takes away all your control,” she said. “But with breast cancer, patients have choices. I get to help them decide how they feel about their breasts. It’s truly personalized care for each patient, and I love that.”

Emily opted for a bilateral mastectomy and reconstruction. Dr. Patrick McGrath – longtime Markey surgical oncologist and Emily’s own mentor at UK – performed her mastectomy.

After a whirlwind year of highs and lows, she celebrated some remarkable high notes: her scans show no evidence of disease, she was able to restart her career at Markey, and she and Tim celebrated Henry’s first birthday. She’s fully back into the swing of doing what she loves: helping women fight cancer and return to their livelihoods, just as she’s been able to do.

Her surgical skills aren’t the only talents she brings to UK. McGrath, who has been at UK for more than three decades, sees Emily as one of the next generation of leaders who will help take Markey to the next level.

“She’s knocking it out of the park,” he said. “She’s an outstanding teacher, surgeon and leader. She has a bright future.”

And though Emily has always considered herself empathetic when working with her patients, she’s now walked in their shoes and understands more fully the issues they face – things like fear and anger, the pain of a surgery drain, the relentless fatigue, and even the surreal feeling of looking in the mirror and not recognizing yourself anymore.

“I never want my patients to feel like a number or like they’re just another part of my day,” she said. “I want you to feel important. And I want you to know how much I care.”
