  • Barth Syndrome Foundation - Overview of Barth Syndrome - Barth syndrome (BTHS; OMIM #302060) is a rare, serious genetic disorder primarily affecting males around the world. It is caused by a mutation in the tafazzin gene (TAZ, also called G4.5), resulting in an inborn error of lipid metabolism. Though not always present, cardinal characteristics of this multi-system disorder often include combinations and varying degrees of cardiomyopathy (dilated with variable myocardial hypertrophy, sometimes with left ventricular noncompaction and/or endocardial fibroelastosis); neutropenia (chronic, cyclic, or intermittent); underdeveloped skeletal musculature and muscle weakness; growth delay (abnormal growth pattern, similar to but often more severe than constitutional growth delay); exercise intolerance; cardiolipin abnormalities; and 3-methylglutaconic aciduria (typically 5 to 20-fold increased).
  • Barth Syndrome Foundation - Research Grant Program - Barth Syndrome Foundation Request for Research Proposals. BSF and its affiliates sponsor a competitive research grant program to facilitate advances in Barth syndrome understanding and to encourage the discovery of new treatments.

  • Telling it how it is - Wilson!!!!!!!!!!

    Wilson is now my bestfriend we go everywhere together. We go sailing, we lived on a random island for awhile, we talk about our days and sometimes we play volleyball together. Truly Wilson is a big part of who I am today. Wilson is a decent ball, not a soft or grippy ball but adequate for beach game with friends.

  • Nicole D. Hartsell - Extremely dissapointed.

    I expected a lot more from Just Dance and was excited about the transition from the Wii. I purchased Dance Central 1, 2, and 3 when I got the connect and at first was aggravated with getting used to the hand gesture to get through the menu but that can be overridden with the remote if you need to. The Just Dance 2014 menu is really annoying and isn't smooth. You have to skip full sections and hover over songs to hear samples without hovering too long and selecting them, if you do that you have to go back to the main menu to see the next song. I also found it helps when the other person you're playing with isn't dancing around like a goof ball when you're trying to make selections as it confuses the game. Anyway, back on track, those games allow you to import all the songs from all the games that you purchased for like $5 which was amazing and it raised my expectations for Just Dance, after all if you can do that why wouldn't you? Well you can't I would have repurchased my previous Just Dance games for that feature since they were Wii and not Xbox. I loved Just Dance 2 and 3, songs were fun and varied and you unlocked more as you went. The song list for 2014 sucks big time. Some of it is just ridiculous there's only like 3 songs I don't mind dancing to and I have yet to find how to unlock new songs only different versions of the same songs without using credits to purchase songs. There's some kind of new credit feature to the game where you earn credits and choose stuff to unlock based on how many it takes to unlock them. This is annoying. Just rate how valuable stuff is and as I play level me up and unlock stuff. Picking and choosing is just teasing when this isn't a strategy game where I need to choose between unlocking a stronger weapon, a stronger shield, or the length of time in which my enemies are stunned. The video feature where it captures you dancing and you can upload it later is extremely unnecessary. Dance Central has a free style section where you can do that but you can turn it off. I have not yet found a way to turn Just Dance's potential facebook black mail feature off. Really? Who wants every sweaty moment documented and posted? I was so looking forward to this game and loved JD3 but if this is the direction they're going in I can certainly live without any more Just Dances. In terms of value if I knew then what I know now, I would have spent, at most, a $5 rental fee for curiosities sake but if you're not curious it isn't worth the shelf space it takes up in my tv room. I'm going back to Dance Central. Unfortunately, as far as I can tell there are no plans for a new Dance Central so unless some other company steps up or JD fixes their direction I'll just be dance to the same songs and going to Zumba. I had hoped this game would bring more fun to my parties which always turn into dancing competitions but it was a total buzz kill until we went back to Dance Central 3. I'll update this if I find something else out about the game that is actually good.

  • Ron Eaton - If you want to boost your hearing, these are the cheapest and best in the category. Don't waste your time buying anything else.

    I find these hearing devices to be more useful and convenient than the $8,000. hearing aid the VA gave me. Their hearing device used batteries that needed to be replaced constantly. I needed to place them over both ears and it was akward to use. Only problem is my dogs think it is food, so try not to leave them out unprotected. They will wear out eventually, so make sure you order backups.

    Outstanding product. I have one permanently installed in my whole house generator and it works perfectly. I was introduced to this product by a friend that uses it on the batteries in his off the grid solar array. I witnessed batteries that tested "bad" on a load tester, test "good" after a few days on the BatteryMINDer. These batteries preformed well when reinstalled in the array for the solar power. That convinced me that this device performs as advertised. I have one that I move around to several batteries and so far, they all are performing to spec.

  • Appalachianlass - Overpriced, but 7 year-old child enjoys

    My 7 year-old daughter was excited to received this gift. Makes mechanical noise when eyes open and close. A bit overpriced for what the toy actually does.

  • Ant P - One of my favorites.

    I own about 15 colognes and Blue Jeans is honestly one of my favorites. It's great and the scent lasts longer than any other cologne I have. I always purchase a new bottle when I finish.

  • greatreviewer - Love the clarity of the monitor

    Love the clarity of the monitor. Great value. Two minor, minor issues that would not prevent me from recommending the product but do stop my from giving it 5 stars. 1) The speakers "click" every so often. Does not seem to relate to the volume being too loud or such. Just a random click. Doesn't bother me because it happens infrequently. 2) I tend to leave the monitor on all the time so when I wake the laptop I can dive right in. Well, there is a annoying blue light that flashes while in sleep mode even though the screen is actually off.
