Sony a9 Is Announced And The Rumors Were Right — The $4,500 Is An ‘Hail Mary’!

by Anura Guruge

Click to ENLARGE and enjoy.

So it is cheaper than what was rumored (i.e., $6,000) BUT that is no consolation.

The $4,500 (U.S.) just for the body puts this well into the ‘Professional Only’ category.

Yes, I could get one IF I wanted BUT I can’t justify that price to MYSELF let alone anyone else — and it is the fact that I can’t justify it to myself that matters.

It is funny but I rarely use multiple-shot shutter bursts! Just one of my many foibles. I wouldn’t know what to do with 20fps.

So, looks like I will be getting a Sony a7II soon. {SMILE}

Fibromyalgia Is NOT What It Used To Be!

by Anura Guruge

If YOUR Fibromyalgia diagnosis is more than a couple of years old the chances are that your diagnosis may need to be RE-EVALUATED.

For a start, doctors in the know, no longer put much stock in the famous 18-tender pressure-spot diagnosis — for so long the BASIS for diagnosing fibromyalgia.

Fibromyalgia used to be thought of as a condition related to rheumatism (or arthritis). The name itself indicates that it has to do with pain in muscles and fibrous tissues. NOT SO, any more.

The latest thinking is that fibromyalgia is a central nervous system related disorder. As such it is very similar to ‘Central Pain Syndrome‘ (CPS).

On May 16, 2015, the ‘American Pain Society’ issued a press release titledFibromyalgia Has Central Nervous System Origins’. Its opening sentence was: ‘Fibromyalgia is the second most common rheumatic disorder behind osteoarthritis and, though still widely misunderstood, is now considered to be a lifelong central nervous system disorder, which is responsible for amplified pain that shoots through the body in those who suffer from it’.


To cap it all, the ‘National Fibromyalgia & Chronic Pain Association’ (NfmCPA) has an article with the title: Fibromyalgia: A Perfect Example of Centralized Pain’.

One thing, however, has NOT changed. More than 75% of those said to have fibromyalgia are women.

My new bookCentral Pain Syndrome‘ deals with the connection between fibromyalgia and CPS.
