Abstract artist Jackson Pollock who was at the hight of his career in the late 1940’s earily 1950’s created what was to be known as the Splatter Technique.

Now decades after his dead in 1956  three paintings thought to be done by him have come under question.  The Pollock-Krasner Foundation, set up under the will of Pollock’s widow, painter Lee Krasner, is said to be looking into things.

Osteogenesis Imperfecta

Posted in Undercurrents on January 6, 2007 by gmadrid

Osteogenesis Imperfecta, also known as brittle bone disease, is a genetic disease in which the bones break very easily. The body has an abnormality with collagen (a protein that forms bones).

There are four types of OI, Type 1 being the mildest (and there has been research to suggest there are at lest 2 more types bringing the number to a possible 6) Each has it’s own  characteristics. Some people find out at birth that they have it, others don’t know untill well into their adult lives.  O.I. has no cure nor are there any real form of treatments. Most people who have it spend their live having surgeries, physical therapy, and end up with walking aids/wheelchairs.
