What is a cerebral aneurysm?
A brain aneurysm is a weak spot in the wall of a vein within the brain that, in some cases, can burst and cause a subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH). Think of a weak point in a balloon and how it feels loose and thin. A brain aneurysm is like that. That region of the vein is depleted by the constant progression of blood and forms clumps, practically like an air pocket. It can develop to the size of a small berry.
Although brain aneurysms sound disturbing, most do not cause side effects or medical problems. You can enjoy a long life without it without ever realizing that you have one. Regardless, in rare cases, aneurysms can develop a large leak or burst. Bleeding in the brain, known as a hemorrhagic stroke, is serious and will need immediate medical attention.

Rosenberg said he doesn’t exactly remember the terms, but repeated that it was a miscommunication that occurred when Snoop approached them about the opportunity to collaborate. Whatever I said or anyone else said, I don’t think for a moment that I said it to him, Rosenberg added. I don’t remember talking to him yet. He may have talked to someone in his group, and everything I said was conveyed to him in such a way that he didn’t like it.
