Recommended Posts

What did they say?????????? OOoooohhhhhh, this is exciting!

Karen

Maybe they were so inundated with e-mail questions, they realized they needed to expand their coverage of it? Hope so!

I have only recently learned how to stand up for myself. It's bad enough getting smashed down by doctors who think gluten is not a problem. Now I feel I am getting slapped in the face, both by Hex's original post and by Judy, Momma Goose, and others who think that I have no right to respond.

Kudos for learning to stand up for yourself - it can be a hard task, and often unappreciated in our world. And I appreciate your point about it seeming a relevant divergence. But, in the interest of not hijaking the thread, which you note you were not trying to do, the idea of posting a new topic on the subject is quite relevant. To address your concern of connecting it to this conversation (which I happen to think is a weak link, but that is a point of disagreement, and I accept that from your perspective, it is connected to the conversation as it had been going), all that need be done is have a post on here that notes why you think a segment on CNN on celiac is related to the pharmaceutical industry, then a hyperlink to the new topic you started related to that. This accomplishes your goal of addressing the issue, without derailing the goal of the original conversation either. Dear god, dare I use the 'win-win' phrase? ;)

Thank you for the good idea. What exactly is a hyperlink, and how do you do it?

Heidi Collis said that over 800 people took the survey, and mentions some links with more information about celiac disease. celiac disease goess 97% undx'd. It was very short. Her co anchor said he knows first hand how difficult it is to eat out as he has lunched with her several time, an it took "hours" to study the menu to select something safe to eat!!!

Maybe someone can find this seg on CNN and post like yesterday.

Guess we need to be prepared for "incomming" :)

That was a great piece! Nice to see. :)

For those looking for the video clips, both are posted here:

http://www.celiaccentral.org/

There are links to both segments on the home page. I know some had problems with viewing, I don't know if the problem simply got fixed, but I had no trouble viewing either of the videos just now.

Sounds like a great idea to me! :rolleyes::D

Awesome! She is doing wonders in getting the word out! She even said near the end that's what she is trying to do - because it is so underdiagnosed, it needs more exposure! Yippee!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you for the good idea. What exactly is a hyperlink, and how do you do it?

A hyperlink is the underlined words that you can click on and that take you to a different website (there's a www.celiaccentral.org link in Canadian Karen's post just above this one). When you are adding a reply to the forum, there is a bar at the top of the typing area. It allows you to include Bold, Italics, etc. There are several small icons on the bar. If you float your cursor over them, a description will pop up. The one that looks like the earth with a chain in front of it allows you to add a link to another webpage. If you click on that icon, a small box will open that allows you to paste in the link.

To do what I think you want to do, just start the other thread, then copy the entire web address from the address bar at the top of your screen. Then jump back to this thread, start a reply, click on the hyperlink icon, then paste the entire web address into the box that opens. Click okay and then type in a name for the link (you can paste in the address again or call it "The Vaccines Thread" or "My Very Favorite Link in the Whole Wide world because I started it and so it's the very best one" or whatever else you want to call it :D). Then click "okay" again, and you're done!

Well, that follow-up gave me tingles! She really is "the voice of Celiac disease". She seems to be proclaiming her desire to make this diseaes known to all. I'm so glad someone with ability has picked up the torch to lead the charge.

I thought the same thing!

Michelle, Thanks for that link--I missed the broadcast :)

Thanks, Betsy--I always wondered what to do with those icons. I am not at this point planning on starting any threads, but I appreciate your tutorial!

I used the link to Heidi Collins to write a real letter telling of our family's struggle to be dxed. I read that most letters are indeed read by paid employees, just not individually responded to.

I hope that giving details about how difficult a dx was to obtain will become a focus on a future segment. I thanked her for her efforts to promote awareness as that is what is needed in order for that group of 97 % undxed people to find the answer to their health issues. I am thinking that personal stories will show the show's producers that there is a real need for continuing dialogue about celiac disease. Also, I believe that evertyhing is justified by money.... If the show sees a growing audience interested in the topic of celiac disease, they will agree to a real segment with a professional speaker, not just friendly banter/exchange between co anchors. Please consider a follow up email to keep the momentum alive.

I just watched CNN's follow-up segment and it was short but great.

She expanded more on the everyday struggles faced by Celiacs and it sounds like they are going to do continuing coverage. Mentioning again that a crumb is the same as a loaf of bread and that EVERYthing needs to be thoroughly checked - including medications, vitamins, lipsticks, etc...

I'm definately going to email another thank you to help keep this momentum going!!

I watched it (or should I say listened to it) at celiac central. Still get the teeny screen with only a portion of the people showing. Very aggrivating. Good to have mainline coverage.

Andrea, could there be a issue with your Quicktime settings in terms of video size? Are there preferences you can set/change to adjust the size?

LOL! I got the same thing! A 1" by 2" box that only showed her from the mouth down! LOL!

Oh well, got to hear what she said, which was great!

I got the same little tiny box and when I tried to futz with the settings, the video stopped!

It didn't matter to me as long as I got to hear what she was saying, though.

I let them know about the video issue but I think it might be an individual computer thing. However, I've been able to view other video's on their site full size. If if is something on their end, I think they'll fix it.

Please everyone - make sure to e-mail CCN and Heidi Collins via the link Karen posted above. It does make a difference! Thanks to everyone who already has.

The video played fine for me. The box is small, maybe 2" x 2" but I do see entire people (or desk up) anyway. I think you are having browser or QT issues if the video is not playing correctly. The reason for the small size is to decrease bandwidth consumption. If you look at the url, Celiac Central is hosting this on their server, it's not a feed from a CNN server. To be sure, Celiac Central doesn't have the powerful streaming servers that CNN does.

Right-click on the video once it starts to play on your screen and look to be certain that your QuickTime settings match your connection speeds, etc.

Respectfully, I don't think it's a good idea to e-mail CNN about this issue. They might decide that the quality Celiac Central is able to provide is not up to their standards and ask them to pull it. I would certainly hope not, but you never know.

WOW!!! Another great coverage. As others here have already said, I like that this one is more down-to-earth with daily struggles presented. I think it's a great juxtaposition to yesterday's statistical orientation. AND, I'm sure y'all caught it....today she tossed in Oats as a grain to avoid :)

Woo Hoo!

And HUGS to all of you with eagle eyes and radar who notified us about these two days of coverage!!

I was able to view it just fine! I'm just tickled silly that this is getting some publicity! I just wish it was aired during PRIME TIME and not just the middle of the day! Kudo's to Heidi Collin's for using her position to be an advocate for Celiac Awareness!

I had no idea this was on the air Monday.... and my husband watches CNN all the time. Anyhow, I'm listening to the broadcast right now. It's great! I can't see the the video either, but I can hear it. Thanks for posting the info on where to find it. It's a good interview.
