ENDINGS AND BEGINNINGS: Black Hammer, Frogcatchers and Inferior Five...

 Cache   

Hello, sorry its been a while since I've sent one of these out, I was away this summer, and am just trying to get caught up on all my work. 

Today is a weird day. I have two books out, a first issue and a last issue. I'll start at the ending...



BLACK HAMMER: AGE OF DOOM #12 hits today and it is the final issue of the series. It's the end of the "farm" storyline which has been the spine of the Black Hammer universe, and was the the story from which everything else has sprung from.  Dean Ormston and I started working on Black Hammer in 2014, and here we are five years later, arriving at the end point I had always conceived for the series, and for out main cast of characters; Golden Gail Barbalien, Abraham Slam and the rest. It's always hard to end a story, especially one where you love the characters and the world as much as I love Black Hammer. But this is where the story led me, and this is where is needs to go. 

It's not the end of Black Hammer of course. Dean and I are already working on the next part of what we consider our "trilogy". The follow up to Black Hammer and Black Hammer: Age of Doom will focus on the character of Lucy Weber, as she struggles to live up to her role as the new Back Hammer. It also features a cast of all new characters, and some familiar faces. 


And starting in December we have SKULLDIGGER & SKELETON BOY, a Black Hammer series I am doing with the incredibly talented Tonci Zonjic (look at that cover!!)

I just received this page of inks from Tonci this morning actually...
So, Age of Doom ends, but Black Hammer will continue! We have lots of cool BH stuff planned for the rest of this year and next.



INFERIOR FIVE #1 also comes out today. This one has been percolating for a long time.  I co-write the series with the great Keith Giffen and he draws the main story while I draw 5-page back-up stories in each issue. 

This project was proposed to me back at San Diego Comicon in 2017, and I started working on it pretty much right away. So it’s been in the works for over two years. 

This is sort of a surreal dream project for me. As I said, Keith is a major influence on me. I grew up reading DC books in the 80’s and 90’s, and Keith was a major creator for DC back then. I read his stuff avidly; his Legion and his Justice League stuff, but also Ambush Bug, Heckler and everything else.
 
And, as you may have read, this project is a quasi-sequel to DC’s INVASION event from 1988. It is set in the continuity of DC in 1988, and Keith actually co-wrote that series, and I was reading it. Very weird and surreal, which pretty much describes the whole series.

To celebrate today's launch, here is a sneak peek at some of my unlettered and uncoloured inks from issue 5!

Just a note: All of my original artwork, including art from Inferiror Five, and signed books and prints, are available for sale at CADENCE COMIC ART! 

And finally FROGCATCHERS! My next original graphic novel Is coming out on September 24 from Simon and Schuster and Gallery 13! 

I was a bit overwhelmed, and incredibly grateful, when one of my writing heroes, WARREN ELLIS, read Frogcatchers this past weekend and said some nice things about it in his weekly newsletter...
 
Hello from out here on the Thames Delta, where I am reading an advance copy of the new Jeff Lemire graphic novel, FROGCATCHERS.  It is, as you'd expect, excellent. There's a breathtaking sequence early on where a hand in water morphs into a chest x-ray which morphs again into the face of a man laying on a bed.  Absolutely superb.  So few people are doing the kind of experimental literary work in comics that Lemire does, and fewer still do it this well. I don't have the kind of space to try that sort of thing any more, but others do, and I really wish they would.  We'd all be better off for it. 
Edited to add:  Jeff asked me for a quote after I thanked him for letting me read it, and here it is:
"A perfect miniature of memory and loss, affecting and beautifully told in an outstanding use of the medium.  A haunting dream of a book."
FROGCATCHERS pre-order (UK) (US) - out next month.

Your local comic book store, or book store, may not have pre-ordered Frogcatchers, so make sure you ask them to order a copy! 


That's it for me this week. I am deep in my next graphic novel, a follow up to the above Frogcatchers. I have about 180 pages drawn and I anticipate it will be about 220. I hope to finish this one by early December, when the pre-production on the Essex County TV show kicks into high gear.

Until next time...

ATP/ADP modulates gp16–pRNA conformational change in the Phi29 DNA packaging motor

 Cache   
Abstract
Packaging of phage phi29 genome requires the ATPase gp16 and prohead RNA (pRNA). The highly conserved pRNA forms the interface between the connector complex and gp16. Understanding how pRNA interacts with gp16 under packaging conditions can shed light on the molecular mechanism of the packaging motor. Here, we present 3D models of the pRNA–gp16 complex and its conformation change in response to ATP or ADP binding. Using a combination of crystallography, small angle X-ray scattering and chemical probing, we find that the pRNA and gp16 forms a ‘Z’-shaped complex, with gp16 specifically binds to pRNA domain II. The whole complex closes in the presence of ATP, and pRNA domain II rotates open as ATP hydrolyzes, before resetting after ADP is released. Our results suggest that pRNA domain II actively participates in the packaging process.

[임신 36주] 태동검사 & 부부 출산교실 2회차 참석

 Cache   

18/11/2013

오늘은 월요일.

오후 2시에 예약해 둔 정기검진일이다.

기다리기 싫어 30분 먼저 도착..오호 정말 사람이 없구나~

 

희동이 몸무게 : 약 2.5 kg

다리길이 : 36주

머리둘레 : 35주

 

희동이는 주수에 비해 다리 길고 머리 약간 작은 상태로 건강히 잘 자라고 있었다~~

오키

 

 

대기하지 않았으나 이 날은 이것저것 검사한 게 많아서 시간이 꽤 걸림.

(한 시간 반 정도?)

 

1) 체중/단백뇨 검사

2) 질 세균검사 (출산 시 감염위험 확인)와 초음파 (이 날, 희동이 사진 안 주심 ㅠ.ㅜ)

나중에 다리 사진이라도 받아옴...

3) 태동검사 (희동이가 잘 움직이나 움직임이 크진 않다고 했더니 선생님이 한번 해보자고 하심)

4) 혈액검사 (보건소 검사지 냈으나, RH -/+ 유무가 없다며 다시 검사함...

RH+라고 알려줬으나 문서화 된 결과가 있어야 한다고 함....

다른 분들 번거롭게 두번 피 뽑지 않도록 보건소 전화해서 이거 넣어달라고 함->알겠다고 했는데 어떨지..?)

5) 귓볼에 작은 바늘로 상처 내어 혈액응고 테스트

6) 흉부 X-ray (등 뒤에서 뭔가로 막아서 희동이가 X-ray 쬐지 않도록 함.

이걸 왜 찍냐고 물으니, 아기가 커져서 갈비뼈를 누를까봐 찍어둔다고 함)

7) 검사는 아니고, 전산으로 무통주사 관련 사인을 함

(부작용을 자세히 설명해 줄 줄 알았는데, 별 말 안해줌... 찜찜했으나 일단 사인함)

 

나는 선생님에게 '심전도 검사는 안하나요? 혹시 제왕절개 할까봐요..'여쭤봤더니

선생님이 '자연분만하다가 응급으로 제왕절개 하면 심전도검사 없이 그냥 수술 해드려요'하심.

 

아무튼 이번에 8만원 넘게 나왔는데, 이제 고운맘 카드도 거의 다 쓰고 4만원 정도 남음.

생각보다 많이 남은 건가? ^^;

체외수정을 제외하고 임신 확인 후 병원 온 횟수가 10번 정도임.

많이 온 건가? 평균 정도인가? 모르겠음~

 

이제 막달이라 병원에 매주 오라고 하실 줄 알았는데 태동검사 결과도 좋고, 자궁뭉침도 전혀 없다며

2주 후에 뵙겠습니다~하심.

조산 가능성은 이제 전혀 없는 모양이다~

사실 나는 배가 뭉친다는 게 뭔지 아직 모름..한번도 못 느껴 봄.

우리 희동이는 확실히 느긋한 아이인 모양이다...

 

 

무튼 이날 밤....

다군 회사에서 진행한 프로젝트가 잘 된 줄 알았는데

오늘 막상 가서 알아보니 잘 안됐다고 한다.

우울해하는 다군...그래도 헬스클럽에서 운동하고 들어옴.

그래놓고는 나를 앞에 앉혀두고 새벽 한시까지 이런저런 얘기하며

혼자 소주 3병과 맥주 한캔을 다 마심.

대화 내용은 희동이를 어떻게 키울건지에 대한 대 토론.

 

나는 당장 눈앞의 일 걱정(출산, 산후조리, 모유수유, 기저귀 갈기, 이유식, 늘 잠이 모자랄 거란 걱정)뿐인데

다군은 벌써 희동이를 어떤 마음가짐으로, 교육에 대한 어떤 기준으로 가르칠지

종교문제부터 대안학교까지 별의별 생각을 다 해 본 모양이다.

혼자 너무 멀리 보는 거 아님?

이게 막달인 와이프랑 벌써 해야 할 얘기인지 모르겠으나

다군은 당연히 미리 생각해 두어야 한다고 함. (...그래??)

아침프로에 나온 변우민이 그러던데...와이프는 저렇게 당장 일어날 일에 집중하고

남편은 한 5~10년 후를 본다고.

아기방을 꾸미며 몇년 후에도 쓸 수 있다고 생각하며 꾸몄다면서.

하긴 다군을 보니 그런 거 같기도 하구나~

 

그리고 약간 기분 나쁘게 꼭 다군은 내 배에 손을 올리고는

'희동아 아무 걱정마, 엄마는 아빠가 꼭 마크해줄께' 이런다.

다군은 내가 인터넷 쇼핑하듯, 학원 비교 검색해 가며

희동이를 학원으로 돌릴 꺼라고 생각하는 듯.

아이가 하나면..친구도 없이 집에서 나랑 둘이 노는 것도 한계가 있을 듯..

사실 그럴 가능성도 없진 않아서

나는 그냥 기능적?!으로 생각해서

10세 이전까지는 두 남매던 자매던 둘째와 함께 키우면

같이 사회성도 기르고 학원 덜 보내고 내가 집에서 둘 앉혀놓고 가르치기도

왠지 더 수월할 거 같다는 생각이 들어서 (서로 경쟁하고 배우며 둘다 윈윈?!)

희동이 돌 지나면 둘째를 가져보면 어떠냐고 물었더니

다군은...내게

자기가 그렇게 만만해 보이냐고 함

ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

ㅡ,.ㅡ

 

그 동안 다군은 별 말을 안해서 사실 나는

내 감정기복이나 몸 상태 변화, 희동이 상태에만 주로 관심이 있었는데

다군에게도 아빠가 된다는 불안감과 걱정이 내 예상보다 큰 모양이다.

내가 너무 다군에게 맘을 쓰지 못한 거 같아 좀 미안했다.

밥도 잘 안 챙겨주고, 청소 빨래 다림질이나 시키며

너무 부려먹기만 했나...

 

사실 결혼할 당시엔 2세 생각 자체가 없다던 다군.

하지만 우리가 임신이 잘 되지 않는 난임부부여서 결국 체외수정으로 희동이를 갖게 되었지만

사실 여기까지도 내가 원해서 다군이 따라온 경향이 있다.

하지만 막상 임신하고 나서는

이왕 생긴?! 희동이를 정말 스트레스 적고 행복한 사람으로 키우기 위해

저렇게 고민을 많이 해 오고 있었던 모양이다...

본인은 포기와 적응이 빠르다나?

ㅎㅎ

그래, 귀엽다 귀여워~

 

언니랑 나 이렇게 둘 낳아 키우신 우리 엄마는

아이 하나를 어떻게 키우냐고, 하나를 엄마 혼자 키우기 얼마나 힘든 지 아냐고

아이는 아이를 좋아해서 어른이 암만 놀아줘봐야 한계가 있다면서

둘째 낳으라고 하심.

그 말을 듣고 가만히 생각해 보니... 약간 기분 나빴다.

그럼 나를 언니 장난감용?!으로

엄마가 언니랑 놀아주기 힘들어서라는 실용적인 이유로 만든건가??

그래서 여쭤봤더니

세상에.....

엄마가 대답을 똑바로 못하심 ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

엉엉

 

...

그게 내가 태어난 이유였다니....

엄마가 언니랑 놀아주기 힘들어서 나를 낳은 거였구나...

하긴 나도 다군에게 둘째 낳자고 한 이유와 완전 똑같으니 할말 없다 ㅎㅎ

나는 역시..엄마 딸이었어...

 

엄마한테, 나 언니랑 놀던 기억도 별로 없어여 했더니

무슨 소리냐고, 학교 들어가기 전에 교구나 장난감 사다주고

둘이 놀으라고 하면 엄청 잘 놀았었다고 하심.

진짜 확실해짐...엄마는 언니랑 놀아주기 힘들어서

날 낳으심.

ㅡ,.ㅡ

 

내가 기억하는 건 6~7살 정도부터인데

나는 언니랑 같이 논 기억은 별로 없고 (같이 피아노, 웅변학원 다닌 기억은 남..)

동네 또래 친구들과 놀이터에서 놀던 기억이 대부분.

(나는 새로운 아이들과도 금방 친해지는 나름 사교적인 아이였음)

아마 그 때는 언니가 유치원/초등학교 다녔으

나는 어차피 알아서 놀았어야 했나보다.

엄마랑 같이 논 기억도 거의 없다...

(우리 엄마는 아이들과 노는 데도 별 재능이 없는 거 같다...나도 그러면 어쩌지..)

 

그런 실용적이기만 한?! 이유로 낳아 키우기엔

둘째에게 너무 미안?!하므로

그냥 하나만 낳아 키우는것도 좋을 것도 같다. ㅎㅎ

 

나는 그래도 양반이지...계획된 둘째니까..

우리 다군은

공무원이시던 아버님 때문에 당시 가족계획대로 반드시 둘만 낳기로 하시고

계획된 임신으로 이미 두살 터울 남매를 두신 시부모님에게서

그만 실수?!로 만들어버리신

아주버님과 4살 터울 막내 ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

어머님이 지울까 말까 고민하시다가 타이밍을 놓치셨는지 그냥 낳으심.

요즘도 가끔 다군을 보며, 아유 저거 안 낳았음 어쩔 뻔 했냐~ 그러심ㅎㅎ

내가 직접 들었음 ㅍㅎㅎㅎ

 

뭐랄까..저렇게 실용적?!인 이유건 얼결에 생긴 생명들이건간에

어떻게든 태어나서 둘이 만나 이러고 잘?! 사는 걸 보면

모든 생명은 소중한 것이다???????????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

 

역시 둘째까지 바랬던 건 내 욕심이었던 듯.

사실 나도 엄청 활동적이고 10kg도 넘을 3살 아기를 키우면서

두 번째 임신을 치러낼 자신이 엄청 많은 건 아니라는..

희동이와 둘째의 나이 차가 더 나면...나는 40살이 넘기 때문에..그 이후 둘째를 갖기란...참..

왠만한 용기론 어려울 듯도 하다..

희동이도 체외수정으로 엄청 힘들게 가졌는데, 둘째는 뭐 맘 먹는다고 쉽게 생기는 것도 아니고..

일단 희동이 돌 지나서 다시 얘기하기로 하고

둘째 얘기는 이쯤에서 마무리.

일단 희동이나 잘 낳아 키워보자~~

 

 

 

22/11/2013

지난 달에 신청했던 분당제일여성병원의 '행복한 출산교실' 2차에 참석했다.

부부 동반 수업으로, 우리는 10월 2째/4째 주 금요일 저녁 7:30~9:00 프로그램 신청. (3만원)

하지만 10월 4째 주 금요일에 다군 지인이 상을 당해 참석 못함

병원에 문의했더니, 11주에 2차 출산교실에 참석하라고 해서 이날 참석함.

 

이날 다군은 고장난 가습기를 A/S받아오느라 집에 들렀다 가

출산교실 참석 때문에 일찍 퇴근하느라

엄청 바쁜 날이었을 듯.

(참, 건조한 겨울이라 에어워셔 제품과 가습기 중 고민하다가

그냥 내가 좀 귀찮더라도 매일 물 갈고 씻고 말리면서

원래 있던 가습기를 쓰기로 결정했다.

에어워셔가 실제로 공기청정 기능이 거의 없다고 뉴스에 나옴..그냥 비싼 가습기인듯..

그런데 뭔가 작동이 잘 안돼서 다군이 직접 가져다가 3만원에 AS 받아옴.

전에 씻어 말릴 때 실수로 물이 들어가면 안되는 곳에 물이 들어갔던 모양이다..

수리 후 지금은 잘됨 ^^)

 

 

이날 교육은 라마즈 호흡 리뷰와 남편이 진통 중의 아내에게 맛사지하는 법을 주로 수업함.

한 시간 반 수업인데,거의 한 시간은 선생님이 시키는 대로 남편들이 아내들 맛사지해줌.

전신 맛사지 받으니 션~하니 좋았다는 ㅎㅎ

다군이 땀을 뻘뻘 흘리며 맛사지.

진짜 애는 혼자 낳는 게 아니구나...

남편분들 자상하시네요~다들 맛사지 잘하시네~ 칭찬해가며 선생님이 남편들을 응원. 

와이프 진통 중에 생길 수 있는 이런 저런 일들을 선생님이 설명해주셔서

남편들이 멘붕?!을 피할 수 있도록 하심.

그리고 출산 시 반드시 보호자가 함께 있어야 하고

특히 출산 이후 분만 4기에

혹시나 의식이 흐릿해지거나 출혈이 있을 수 있는 산모를 잘 돌보아야

만에 하나 발생해선 안되는 불상사를 막을 수 있다고 하심.

 

수업이 끝나고 비디오로 아기 낳는 부부의 동영상을 한 5분 봄.

편집한 것이긴 하지만 진통 시 울거나 소리지르는 장면은 하나도 안 나옴.

선생님이 동영상 끝나고 그 얘기를 하면서

미리 충분히 호흡을 연습하고 공부하고 오면

이렇게 대부분 우아하게?! 낳을 수 있다고

낳는 엄마도 힘들지만 태어나는 아기가 엄마보다 더 힘드니

아기의 산소나 심박수 떨어지게 울고불고 소리지르고 하면 안되니 

열심히 연습하라고 하심.

 

요즘 나도 매일 동영상 보며 라마즈 호흡 연습중이다.

연습만이 살 길이다?!

진통 중 정신 놓는 순간 호흡이고 뭐고 다 잊어버릴 거 같아서...

매일 이미지트레이닝 중.

 

끝나고 모든 커플에게 수료증을 나누어주심.

별거 아니지만 왠지 뿌듯?! 

 

 

 

 

23/11/2013

왠지 집에서 VOD로 보면 후회막급일 듯 하여

영화 '그래비티'를 3D로 보기위해 영화관에 갔다. 출산 전에 마지막으로 보는 영화관 영화일 듯.

(아마 희동이가 어느 정도 클 때까지는 다군과 둘이 영화관에서 영화보기 쉽지 않겠지?)

보통 사람이 덜 많아 주차가 더 편리한 오리 CGV에서 보는데

다군이 왠지 죽전 CGV를 가자고 함.

 

이 날 카시트를 장착하고 싶어서 갖고 내려가 설치하려는데

뭔가 잘 안되어 시간이 오래 걸려 영화 시간에 좀 빠듯해짐...

아니나 다를까...마침 신세계 백화점 세일 기간이라...인산인해.

하긴 세일 아니더라고 주말에 여기가 주차하기 쉬울 리가 없지..

결국 영화 시간에 늦어 앞에 한 5분 못봄 ㅎㅎ

뭐, 그래도 스토리를 놓치거나 그런 건 없어서 괜찮았음 ㅋ

영화관 맨 뒤에 있는 Sweetbox석에서 처음 봤는데 넓직하니고 완전 편하니 좋았다.

가격이 더 비싸다는 게 함정.

만삭인 나는 사실 영화관에 가면 중간에 화장실 가야 할지 몰라 걱정이었는데

영화가 1시간 반 밖에 안 되어 미리 화장실 들렀더니 괜찮음*^^*

 

영화도 아주 훌륭. 원래 짧은 영화임에도 너무 순식간에 끝나버려 아쉬웠다.

집에서 TV로 VOD  보았다면 정말 후회했을 영화.

별 4개 반.

영화 끝나고 지하 푸드코트에서 저녁으로 조니 로켓 버거와 칠리치즈 감자를 먹음.

처음 먹어봤는데, 사이즈가 진짜 크고 맛도 괜찮음.

다만 새로 온 알바들이 많은지 너무 오래 기다려서 배고팠다는~

희동이가 위를 누르고 있는지 한꺼번에 많은 양을 먹는 건 힘들어

반만 먹고 결국 포장해옴.

물론 집에 와서 바로 다 먹어버림 ㅋㅋ

 

죽전신세계에 가면 꼭 사오는 왕만두~

이날도 배가 부름에도 사와서 집에와서 남은 버거와 함께 먹어버림.

이 왕만두 세 종류(팥앙금, 고기, 사천) 중 진리는 역시 고기.

 

 

아기 낳고 갑자기 카시트를 설치하려 하면 허둥대느라 시간 오래걸려

결국 그냥 안고 오기 십상이란 얘기를 많이 들어 미리 설치해 보니

과연...뭔가 어설프게 해서 오래 걸림.

다른 분들도 출산 전에 미리미리 설치하시길~

미리 보조석 뒷자리에 희동이를 위한 카시트를 장착해 두니

맘이 든든하다.

Resistance Training and Protein Supplementation Increase Strength After Bariatric Surgery: A Randomized Controlled Trial.

Obesity (Silver Spring). 2018 11;26(11):1709-1720

Authors: Oppert JM, Bellicha A, Roda C, Bouillot JL, Torcivia A, Clement K, Poitou C, Ciangura C

Abstract
OBJECTIVE: Physical activity and dietary regimens to optimize health outcomes after bariatric surgery are not well known. This study aimed to determine whether resistance training with dietary protein supplementation is effective in maintaining body composition and physical fitness after obesity surgery.
METHODS: Seventy-six women with obesity undergoing Roux-en-Y gastric bypass were randomly assigned at the time of surgery to receive either usual care (controls [CON], n = 22), usual care and additional (whey) protein intake (PRO, n = 31), or usual care, additional protein intake, and supervised strength training for 18 weeks (PRO+EX, n = 23). The primary outcome was pre- to 6-month postsurgery change in lean body mass (by dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry). Secondary outcomes included changes in muscle strength (by one-repetition maximum testing).
RESULTS: Loss over time in lean body mass did not differ between groups (CON: mean,-8.8 kg; 95% CI: -10.1 to -7.5 kg; PRO: mean, -8.2 kg; 95% CI: -9.3 to -7.1 kg; PRO+EX: mean, -7.7 kg; 95% CI: -9.0 to -6.5 kg; P = 0.899). The increase in relative lower-limb muscle strength was higher in the PRO+EX group (+0.6 [0.3 to 0.8]) versus +0.1 (-0.1 to 0.4) and +0.2 (0.0 to 0.4) kg/kg body mass in CON and PRO groups, respectively (P = 0.021).
CONCLUSIONS: Loss in muscle strength observed after bariatric surgery can be overcome by resistance training with additional protein intake.

Super-sized Space Bubbles in Another Galaxy Are Spewing Cosmic Rays in Our Direction.....

 

10/07/2019 / By Edsel Cook

Tagged Under: cosmiccosmic eventscosmic raysdiscoveriesGalaxiesNASANGC 3079 galaxyouter spacespace researchStars, super bubbles, super-massive black holes

You have probably seen a child huffing and puffing and blowing at a bubble blower toy to fill the air with glistening soap bubbles. Researchers identified a galaxy in the universe that is going through a similar phase in its life — except its space bubbles are shooting cosmic rays in the general direction of Earth.

The NGC 3079 galaxy lies 67 million light-years from the sun. It produced two huge bubbles of gas that span several thousand light-years in diameter.

Both formations gave off tremendous amounts of highly charged particles that streaked across the vast void as cosmic rays. Their particles displayed 100 times more energy than any counterpart on Earth, including the ones created and studied at the Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland.

A NASA-led international team of researchers from the United States, Canada, France, and Germany made this discovery. They went over imagery sent by the Hubble Space Telescope and the Chandra X-ray Observatory — two of the four “Great Observatories” launched by NASA from 1990 to 2003.

They spotted the two cosmic bubbles bobbing near the center of NGC 3079. The researchers released their findings in The Astrophysical Journal. (Related: Sci-fi in real life: Scientists propose building a space station INSIDE an asteroid and using its gravity to mine valuable space rocks.)

A distant galaxy formed two big super bubbles

While researchers have spotted similar bubbles in the past, the vast bulk of the two cosmic formations in NGC 3079 earned them the classification of “super bubbles.”

The bulkier member of the pair sported a diameter of 4,900 light-years. Meanwhile, its partner measured around 73 percent of its size (3,600 light-years).

To give an idea of how big these super bubbles are, the orbit of Neptune around the sun measures a diameter of 5.6 billion miles (nine billion kilometers). Multiply that by one thousand, and you get a light-year, 5.6 trillion miles (nine trillion kilometers.)

Now, note that both NGC 3079 super bubbles have diameters that span thousands of light-years. The bigger super bubble measures more than 27.4 quadrillion miles (50.4 quadrillion kilometers).

These and other super bubbles throughout the universe are made up of stellar gas that originated in stars in their home galaxy. While a star releases gas regularly, it may experience a tremendously strong shock wave or multiple such events. The shock waves hurl its material so far into space that the expelled gas forms a bubble-shaped structure.

The secret origin of NGC 3079’s super bubbles

The NASA researchers might know about the process that formed cosmic bubbles, but they remained mystified regarding the particular event that produced the shock waves responsible for creating NGC 3079’s super bubbles.

One theory involves newly formed stars. A lot of energy goes into the birth of a star. The process produces “stellar winds” similar to solar wind, but arguably much stronger.

These stellar winds may possess the force to cast stellar gas into the far reaches of space. And there are a lot of stars being born.

Another theory attributes super bubbles to the activity of super-massive black holes. Often found in the hearts of galaxies, the titanic space-time distortions devour anything that passes their event horizon.

Whenever a black hole consumes matter, it releases immense amounts of energy. The radiation from the supermassive examples has enough energy to form super bubbles.

Like most galaxies, NGC 3079 hosts a super-massive black hole in its center. And this black hole so happens to sit in between the super bubbles, lending credence to this theory.

Whatever their origin, the super bubbles appear to act as natural particle accelerators of immense power. The interactions within the gas-filled cavity may impart tremendous amounts of energy on cosmic particles. They may be a source of the cosmic rays that make space travel so risky.

She told the nurse that they wouldn’t be doing surgery, but we can only assume now that she meant they wouldn’t be doing it that day.)

Comment on The modern pellet by shootski

 Cache   
Chris USA, I know that you read HAM and the most recent by Bob Sterne in Pellet and Slug Stability is a good one as far as it goes. If you think about the CG and CP of a ball you will be on to a big potential breakthrough. The but of course is that you can only see the outside with your eyes, unless you share X-Ray vision with Superman! So if the ball, slug, or pellet has voids (even tiny ones) the CG will shift and the ball will wobble. Another but now, it won't yaw like a slug or pellet do. So one factor eliminated right there. The other but is that although it can have a CG that doesn't coincide with the CP it will not have any dynamic yaw issues or wind jump variance and variations in crosswind lift or drag and more! So in a nutshell we have disrespected the humble ball because of the lower BC (mythical number) actually Sectional Density that is a prime factor of/for reaching out to greater distances. More eventually. shootski
          

The Proto-Indo-European Homeland Puzzle

 Cache   
The Indo-European Language Family

Indo-European was the first language family to be identified. This discovery, and the beginning of modern linguistics, can be dated to February 2, 1786 at a gathering of scientists and other interested men. Sir William Jones, speaking at the Asiatic Society in Calcutta, made this astounding statement:

The Sanskrit language, whatever be its antiquity, is of a wonderful structure: more perfect than the Greek, more copious than the Latin, and more exquisitely refined than either; yet bearing to both of them a stronger affinity, both in the roots of verbs and in the forms of grammar, than could possibly have been produced by accident; so strong indeed, that no philologer could examine them all three, without believing them to have sprung from some common source, which, perhaps, no longer exists.

Jones later added Persian and Celtic as likely members of this family of languages.

Jones was uniquely qualified to make this discovery. His parental language was Welsh; he was taught English at school; he learned classical Greek and Latin in university where he studied law; he wrote the first English grammar of the Persian language (which earned him a reputation as one of the most respected linguists in Europe); and when appointed a judge in India at age 37 set out to learn the Sanskrit language to better understand local laws. Thus by age 40 Jones was familiar with a language in 6 (out of a total of 12) different Indo-European language branches.

Indo-European languages are spoken today by over 3 billion people - about half of the world's population - as either a first or second language. These languages are divided into 10 or 12 language branches or subfamilies. See the attached graph (Figure 1.1 of The Horse, The Wheel and Language p.12) which is arranged more or less geographically. English is a member of the Germanic subfamily along with German, Dutch, Frisian, the Scandinavian languages (which includes Icelandic), Yiddish, and Afrikaans. Other languages to note include:
            Tocharian – two extinct languages found in western China, the farthest East branch
            Hittite – a member of the extinct Anatolian branch – the earliest branch to separate
            Romany – the language of the Gypsies of Europe, is a member of the Indic branch showing that they originated in northwest India (not to be confused with Rumanian which is a member of the Latin or Romance language branch)



Source: Figure 1.1 of The Horse, The Wheel and Language p.12

About 6,000 to 5,000 years ago the parent language, called Proto-Indo-European, was spoken by a semi-nomadic tribe of people in the southern Ukraine and Russia. How their language spread and evolved into all of all these languages could be the subject for a future lecture. Today I want to show how historical linguistics and archaeology were combined to solve the puzzle of who the speakers of Proto-Indo-European were, and where and when they lived.
Source: Figure 1.2 of The Horse, The Wheel and Language p.14

The Proto-Indo-European Homeland Puzzle

Since the discovery of the IE language family, the location of the homeland of the original speakers has been claimed by different people to be many different places: India, Pakistan, Syria/Lebanon, the Caucasus Mountains, Turkey, Armenia, Kazakhstan, Russia, Ukraine, the Balkans and Germany. By the late 20th century linguists only seriously considered two of these – Anatolia (modern Turkey) and the steppes of southern Ukraine and Russia. And as recently as 2000, Calvert Watkins in his essay “Indo-European and the Indo-Europeans” which introduces his book The American Heritage Dictionary of Indo-European Roots stated “Archaeologists have not in fact succeeded in locating the Indo-Europeans.”

Colin Renfrew was a strong supporter of the other serious contender, Anatolia. Renfew's elegant proposal, published in the 1990's, had Proto-Indo-European migrant farmers carry their language along with agriculture from the Middle East to the westernmost part of Europe. But like many elegant theories, this one turned out to be not true. (I was greatly disappointed when linguistics and DNA analysis disproved Thor Heyerdahl's theories of Polynesian origins). There are, as we will see, serious problems with Renfrew's theory.

Before going further, I need to emphasize one point. Proto-Indo-European is a language. It is not a culture, nor is it a genetically-definable population. Language does not necessarily follow cultural boundaries, which can be determined by archaeology. Every first year archaeology student is taught “pots are not people”. But we know that someone must have spoken this language, and they must have lived in a particular place during a particular time. So while looking for the speakers of Proto-Indo-European we need to be careful of this constraint.
  
Clues from the Language

Since Proto-Indo-European is a language, let's look first at clues to the homeland from the language itself. The American Heritage Dictionary of Indo-European Roots published in 2000 contains 1350 reconstructed root words and several thousand more words based on these roots. These words have been painstakingly reconstructed by comparing similar words (called cognates) from the daughter languages over the more than 200 years since Jones' discovery. What can we learn about the people who spoke this language from their vocabulary?

they were not familiar with tropical plants or animals
animals include: wolf, lynx, elk beaver, otter, mouse, fish
birds include: crane, goose, duck, eagle, woodpecker

they knew of the wheel and used wagons or carts (weak link in Anatolian)
they knew of boats and oars - words like nav (navigate, navy) and rowing.
gift exchange is an important part of their culture
the guest-host relation was important –  *ghosti is the root of both host and guest (ghost originally meant visitor or guest)
they borrowed words from Proto-Uralic, another Eurasian language family, suggesting that the Proto-Indo-European speakers must have lived close to, and likely traded with, people who spoke Proto-Uralic who then, as now, live in northern Europe and Siberia (Hungarian is a member of this family found in Europe because of recent migration (~900CE).

The seasons and animals indicate a northern location either in or adjacent to a forest. The words for bee and honey place the homeland west of the Ural Mountains as honeybees do not occur east of there.

Clues to Dating Proto-Indo-European

Language can also help place the Proto-Indo-European speakers in time as well as location.

Agriculture was introduced to Europe between 6700 and 6500 BC while the wheel was not known until 3400 BC and woolen textiles sometime after 4000 BC. For the daughter language families to have similar words for the wheel and wool, they must have separated from Proto-Indo-European after their arrival. This effectively eliminates the Anatolian farmer immigrant theory. Besides, the two or three Anatolian languages were very similar to each other and spoken by only a small number of people in this area, which strongly suggests they are spoken by Indo-European speaking migrants to Anatolia, not by the ancestors of the language.

The domestication of the horse provides additional clues. Horses were hunted for meat by the people of the steppe for millennia before they were domesticated. They were first domesticated sometime after 4800 BC, a thousand years after cattle were introduced to the area. But they were raised for their meat only. During a cool dry period (4200-3800 BC) horses would have an advantage over cattle because they can forage for themselves during the winter. [Pioneer farmers in Saskatchewan like my grandfather often turned their horses loose for the winter to manage for themselves, rounding them up in the spring]. Riding of horses began on the steppes sometime before 3700 BC and had spread to Northern Kazakhstan, the Caucasus Mountains, and into Europe, by 3000 BC.

An important tool used in the dating of horse riding is bit wear on horse molars. The identification of tooth wear caused by bits of metal, bone, rope and rawhide, was pioneered by the author of The Horse, The Wheel and Language – David W. Anthony, and his wife, fellow archaeologist Dorcas Brown. There is an interesting Saskatchewan connection here. One of the experts they contacted was Hilary Clayton who began studying the mechanics of bits in horses’ mouths while working in Philadelphia, and then took a job at the Western Veterinarian College in Saskatoon. Anthony and Brown followed her to Saskatchewan in 1985 and viewed the X-ray videos she had made of horses chewing their bits.

Riding horses provided a significant benefit to herders in the steppes. A man on horseback could manage a herd of cattle or sheep much larger than a man on foot. With the much later advent of wheeled carts, about 3300 BC, the herders could carry with them tents, food and water allowing them to take advantage of the vast areas between the river valleys. This opened up the steppe much as the horse did to the plains of North America 5,000 years later.

Dating the Daughters

Language provides clues to timing in another way. Linguists can date, with more or less certainty, when each of the daughter language branches separated from the mother language. Here is a list of the branches, in the order of separation, with the approximate date (all BC) of separation (from Figure 3.2 The Horse, The Wheel and Language p. 57).

            Anatolian        4200
            Tocharian       3700 - 3300
            Germanic        3300
            Celtic / Italic   3000
            Greek / Armenian 2500
            Balto-Slavic    2500
            Indo-Iranian    2500-2200

Clues from Archaeology – The Kurgan Cultures

With the time line narrowed to the period 4000 to 2000 BC, it's time to look at the archaeological record and see who was living in the likely homelands and how well they fit with the linguistic clues. The archaeology of the Pontic-Caspian steppes was mostly carried out by Soviet scientists and published in Russian. These were not translated into English until the 1990s. Anthony was one of the first western archaeologists to study this work and relate it to the Proto-Indo-European homeland question.

Anthony found a close fit with the western steppe peoples who built huge burial mounds called kurgans. Their culture varied somewhat over the Proto-Indo-European time line and also geographically from place to place within this large area, but their overall cultures were similar, especially compared to the foragers to the north and east and to the sophisticated farming cultures to the west and south. They were semi-nomadic, raising cattle and sheep. Horses were important both for meat and for riding to manage their growing herds. They used wheeled carts. They mined their own ore and made their own tools and weapons of copper, tin and bronze.

Even more compelling is the evidence, from archaeology, of known migrations out of the steppes in the right directions and at the right times to account for the birth of the daughter language families.

1) to the west 4200-3900 (Anatolian)
2) to the east 3700-3300 (Tocharian)
3) to the west - several waves (Germanic, Celtic, Italic)
4) to north (Baltic, Slavic)
5) to the east and south (Iranian, Indic)

I should explain that by migration I do not mean large scale movement of people displacing existing populations along with their culture and language. This may have been the case with the Pre-Tocharians who made a remarkably long migration in one jump to the Altai Mountains 2000 km to the east (equivalent to the journey made by my grandparents from southern Ontario to Saskatchewan, but without the advantage of trains). Most if not all the other migrations were by small groups who, through some combination of trade or intimidation, became rulers of existing populations. They brought with them enough of their culture to be recognized archaeologically; and they brought their language which, for a variety of reasons, was adopted by the others and continued to spread long after they were gone.
  
Puzzle Solved

While there may be a few objections to his theory not yet satisfactorily answered, Anthony is convinced that the Proto-Indo-European Homeland puzzle has been solved.

I want to finish with a quote from The Horse, The Wheel and Language  p. 464

Understanding the people who lived before us is difficult, particularly the people who lived in the prehistoric tribal past. Archaeology throws a bright light on some aspects of their lives but leaves much in the dark. Historical linguistics can illuminate a few of those dark corners.

Introducing Robin, the Bébé Cat

 Cache   

Those of you who follow one or more of my myriad Instagram accounts probably need no introduction, but for the rest of you, here's our new kitten -- Robin!
View this post on Instagram

Meowmie and I haz decided dat #bebecat will be named Robin after Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester. Da nickname for Robert was Robin. Robert was da boyfriend of Elizabeth I and she wuvved him a lot! Me and my brofurs have Tudor names. Henry da Peke = Henry VIII. @fitzroy_the_cat = illegitimate son Henry FitzRoy. Edward da Peke = Edward VI. I was named after Anne Boleyn’s favorite dog (boo!) Meowmie wanted to name da bebe wif a lot of love in honor of all da love dat #catstagram showed me after I flew to da 🌈 ... even doe at @callyncats dey call him “Hamster” 😹 #thewinkingcat #beberobin #ittybittykitty #kittengif #tudors #robertdudley #earlofleicester #elizabethan #exoticshorthair #catsvideos #catstagram #robinthewinkingcat #wink #bestmeow @bestmeow @cats_of_instagram

A post shared by Purrkoy the Kitten (@purrkoy_and_robin) on

Robin is an Exotic Shorthair boy who, like most of my other pets, has a Tudors-inspired name. I wanted to give him a name that represented lots of love, which was a challenge when it comes to the Tudor dynasty. Those folks weren't famous for their great relationships. But Elizabeth I -- the Virgin Queen herself -- had a longtime, much-loved boyfriend: Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester. There are a lot of possible names there, and at first I considered "Dudley." But that didn't feel loving enough, so I went with Robin, the old nickname for Robert. ("Bonny Sweet Robin" was popular folk song in Elizabeth's time.) I do get a kick out of the fact that Elizabeth loved her Robin as a superior loves an inferior: "I cannot do without my Lord Robert for he is like my little dog," she told the French ambassador. Like I wrote earlier this year, Elizabeth I could have taught the fictional Daenerys of Game of Thrones exactly how queens should deal with men. That said, Elizabeth truly did adore Dudley. When she died in 1603, a keepsake box by her bed was found to contain the last letter he'd written to her before his death in 1588. Bébé cat Robin joined our household in mid-August ...
... and I've been strangely negligent about writing his all-important introductory blog post, as devoted reader Sarah Savage has reminded me a couple of times. Well, Sarah got married yesterday, and I figured the least I could do to celebrate was get cracking on this. Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Brooks! Keep the good news coming and maybe I'll get to all the other things I've neglected lately. Robin is only the second baby animal I've had during my adult life, and I've had four dogs and three cats (thankfully, not all at once). The dogs were all rescues, ranging in age from 1 1/2 years old to five. FitzRoy the cat was technically a kitten because he was only seven months old when I got him, but even then, he was a rather serious, introspective, "let me chillax in this bowl" type of guy.
[caption id="attachment_43706" align="aligncenter" width="498"] Click to follow FitzRoy on the 'gram.[/caption]
The only baby was Purrkoy the kitten, the wild man who joined the family in 2014.
Purrkoy grew into a imperious and mischievous adult, who was 100% the boss of me. He was known far and wide on Instagram for singing the song of his people in a nightly opurra performance. Tragically, he died last December at the young age of four from a massive stroke of unknown origin. While grieving him, I realized I desperately wanted another chance with a little baby cat, and I wanted that baby to come from Callyn Cats, where I got Purrkoy. I told the lovely Lynn of Callyn Cats, who was expecting some litters this summer. She was in touch with me before, during, and after the birth of Robin's litter. Check out this video of infant Robin dealing with his sassy sister after she gave him a paw to the mouth (sound up!).
Once the kittens were able to get up and around, Lynn reported that they were running around like maniacs. Accordingly, when Robin started to limp a little, we all figured he'd gotten a sprain from extreme kitten sports. Lynn took him to the vet, who palpated his leg, checked him out all over, and gave him some anti-inflammatory medicine. After a few days, Lynn told me that Robin was limping again and she wanted to take him for an X-ray. To everyone's shock, he had a broken -- but already healing -- femur! No one knows how it happened or when. Considering that Robin was happily walking, running, climbing, and jumping, there wasn't even anything to be done about it for the moment. Any operation to reset it was best delayed till he was older, if it was even necessary at all. Still, Lynn did the right thing and offered me my choice of another kitten. I said no. Although I hadn't met Robin in person and had only seen pictures of him, I had named him. I couldn't imagine saying, "Yeah, keep Robin and give me a fresher, more perfect kitten." In fact, the incident made sense in a way. I had entertained myself for months with the notion that the spirit of Purrkoy would send me the right kitten, but I hadn't felt any Purrkoy-ness about Robin. Same breeder, but different color (per my request) and different parents. Extra drama though -- now THAT has PK written all over it! Now Robin is completely accustomed to his new home. If he has a limp, I don't even see it.
We love him to bits!
FitzRoy has even resigned himself to sharing his famous orange bowl with the newcomer. He didn't have much of a choice, actually. While Purrkoy never showed the slightest interest in the bowl, Robin made himself right at home.
Going back to Robin's name, I said I wanted it to represent a lot of love. At first, I thought that was to honor my feelings for Purrkoy. But then I realized that what I truly wanted to memorialize was the great outpouring of affection from the cat lovers of Instagram (aka Catstagram) after PK died. Within 24 hours of PK's death, nearly 70 Instagram friends had organized to send a big bouquet of white rose in his honor. They also commissioned this unbelievable portrait from cat-loving Jessica Herner.
          

Fast Fitting of Reflectivity Data of Growing Thin Films Using Neural Networks. (arXiv:1910.02898v1 [cond-mat.soft])

 Cache   

Authors: Alessandro Greco, Vladimir Starostin, Christos Karapanagiotis, Alexander Hinderhofer, Alexander Gerlach, Linus Pithan, Sascha Liehr, Frank Schreiber, Stefan Kowarik

X-ray reflectivity (XRR) is a powerful and popular scattering technique that can give valuable insight into the growth behavior of thin films. In this study, we show how a simple artificial neural network model can be used to predict the thickness, roughness and density of thin films of different organic semiconductors (diindenoperylene, copper(II) phthalocyanine and $\alpha$-sexithiophene) on silica from their XRR data with millisecond computation time and with minimal user input or a priori knowledge. For a large experimental dataset of 372 XRR curves, we show that a simple fully connected model can already provide good predictions with a mean absolute percentage error of 8-18 % when compared to the results obtained by a genetic least mean squares fit using the classical Parratt formalism. Furthermore, current drawbacks and prospects for improvement are discussed.


          

Automated Enriched Medical Concept Generation for Chest X-ray Images. (arXiv:1910.02935v1 [cs.LG])

 Cache   

Authors: Aydan Gasimova

Decision support tools that rely on supervised learning require large amounts of expert annotations. Using past radiological reports obtained from hospital archiving systems has many advantages as training data above manual single-class labels: they are expert annotations available in large quantities, covering a population-representative variety of pathologies, and they provide additional context to pathology diagnoses, such as anatomical location and severity. Learning to auto-generate such reports from images present many challenges such as the difficulty in representing and generating long, unstructured textual information, accounting for spelling errors and repetition/redundancy, and the inconsistency across different annotators. We therefore propose to first learn visually-informative medical concepts from raw reports, and, using the concept predictions as image annotations, learn to auto-generate structured reports directly from images. We validate our approach on the OpenI [2] chest x-ray dataset, which consists of frontal and lateral views of chest x-ray images, their corresponding raw textual reports and manual medical subject heading (MeSH ) annotations made by radiologists.


          

Beyond Supervised Classification: Extreme Minimal Supervision with the Graph 1-Laplacian. (arXiv:1906.08635v2 [cs.LG] UPDATED)

 Cache   

Authors: Angelica I. Aviles-Rivero, Nicolas Papadakis, Ruoteng Li, Samar M Alsaleh, Robby T Tan, Carola-Bibiane Schonlieb

We consider the task of classifying when an extremely reduced amount of labelled data is available. This problem is of a great interest, in several real-world problems, as obtaining large amounts of labelled data is expensive and time consuming. We present a novel semi-supervised framework for multi-class classification that is based on the non-smooth $\ell_1$ norm of a normalised Dirichlet energy based on the graph Laplacian. Our transductive framework is framed under a novel functional with carefully selected class priors - that enforces a sufficiently smooth solution that strengthens the intrinsic relation between the labelled and unlabelled data. We demonstrate through extensive experimental results on large datasets CIFAR-10 and ChestX-ray14, that our method outperforms classic methods and readily competes with recent deep-learning approaches.

Do medical X-rays give you cancer?

It would be very surprising if they did. They have been in use for about a century so one would think that any adverse effects would have been noticed long ago. Yet the article below says they do cause cancer -- in South Korea.

But the article is inconclusive. WHO were the people who had many X-rays?  Probably the poor as the poor are always shown to have worse health.  So the greater incidence of cancer among X-ray recipients was entirely as expected -- as a normal correlate of poverty.

There is so much crap in epidemiological research.  Inconclusive articles like this are a big pain to me as I repeatedly feel obliged to point out the obvious flaws in them


Association of Exposure to Diagnostic Low-Dose Ionizing Radiation With Risk of Cancer Among Youths in South Korea

Jae-Young Hong et al.

Abstract

Importance:  Diagnostic low-dose ionizing radiation has great medical benefits; however, its increasing use has raised concerns about possible cancer risks.

Objective:  To examine the risk of cancer after diagnostic low-dose radiation exposure.

Design, Setting, and Participants  This population-based cohort study included youths aged 0 to 19 years at baseline from South Korean National Health Insurance System claim records from January 1, 2006, to December 31, 2015. Exposure to diagnostic low-dose ionizing radiation was classified as any that occurred on or after the entry date, when the participant was aged 0 to 19 years, on or before the exit date, and at least 2 years before any cancer diagnosis. Cancer diagnoses were based on International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems, Tenth Revision codes. Data were analyzed from March 2018 to September 2018.

Main Outcomes and Measures:  The primary analysis assessed the incidence rate ratios (IRRs) for exposed vs nonexposed individuals using the number of person-years as an offset.

Results:  The cohort included a total of 12 068 821 individuals (6 339 782 [52.5%] boys). There were 2 309 841 individuals (19.1%) aged 0 to 4 years, 2 951 679 individuals (24.5%) aged 5 to 9 years, 3 489 709 individuals (28.9%) aged 10 to 14 years, and 3 317 593 individuals (27.5%) aged 15 to 19 years. Of these, 1 275 829 individuals (10.6%) were exposed to diagnostic low-dose ionizing radiation between 2006 and 2015, and 10 792 992 individuals (89.4%) were not exposed. By December 31, 2015, 21 912 cancers were recorded. Among individuals who had been exposed, 1444 individuals (0.1%) received a cancer diagnosis. The overall cancer incidence was greater among exposed individuals than among nonexposed individuals after adjusting for age and sex (IRR, 1.64 [95% CI, 1.56-1.73]; P < .001). Among individuals who had undergone computed tomography scans in particular, the overall cancer incidence was greater among exposed individuals than among nonexposed individuals after adjusting for age and sex (IRR, 1.54 [95% CI, 1.45-1.63]; P < .001). The incidence of cancer increased significantly for many types of lymphoid, hematopoietic, and solid cancers after exposure to diagnostic low-dose ionizing radiation. Among lymphoid and hematopoietic cancers, incidence of cancer increased the most for other myeloid leukemias (IRR, 2.14 [95% CI, 1.86-2.46]) and myelodysplasia (IRR, 2.48 [95% CI, 1.77-3.47]). Among solid cancers, incidence of cancer increased the most for breast (IRR, 2.32 [95% CI, 1.35-3.99]) and thyroid (IRR, 2.19 [95% CI, 1.97-2.20]) cancers.

Conclusions and Relevance:  This study found an association of increased incidence of cancer with exposure to diagnostic low-dose ionizing radiation in a large cohort. Given this risk, diagnostic low-dose ionizing radiation should be limited to situations in which there is a definite clinical indication.

A new map by a Houston-based nonprofit shows clear disparities in life expectancy on either side of a line along Interstate 35 in Travis County, with those in the west living often more than a decade longer than in areas in the east.

In case anybody accuses me of unsubstantiated generalizations, I am reproducing here one of the thousands of articles that show the poor to have worse health.  The discussion below is about Austin, Texas and some of the disparities reported are extreme


The map, released Monday by the Episcopal Health Foundation, relied on six years of mortality data from the National Center for Health Statistics and drills down to the neighborhood-level by looking at census tracts. It found huge differences in life expectancy in neighborhoods sometimes only a few miles apart.

In the Rosewood area in East Austin, near East 12th Street and Pleasant Valley Road, for example, a person can expect to live to about 72, the map shows. About 5 miles away near Enfield Road in West Austin — on the other side of I-35 — life expectancy is 83, or 11 years longer.

Poverty levels and demographics also vary widely in the two areas.

Rosewood is largely black and Hispanic, with nearly 50% of residents living below the federal poverty line. The West Austin neighborhood is 88% white, with only 10% considered in poverty.

The area with the shortest life expectancy in Travis County is in Oak Hill near Sunset Valley, where people can expect to live to age 68. Just about a mile to the west is the area with the longest life expectancy, near Barton Creek Boulevard and Southwest Parkway, where a person can expect to live to age 88, or 20 years longer.

The median life expectancy in Texas is 77.8 years.

Austin Public Health has found similar disparities in health outcomes between eastern and western Travis County. The department said it regularly uses its own data to decide where to target its efforts, often on the east side. Cassandra DeLeon, assistant director for disease prevention, said this includes providing job training, education campaigns and access to healthy food.

Another lie from Pocohontas

This is typical psychopathic behavior.  She tells lies to suit the moment with no thought of it coming back to bite her later on

U.S. presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren is coming under scrutiny after resurfaced video from 2008 appears to contradict a claim she is now making on her campaign trail.

The Democratic hopeful, 70, told a town hall audience in Nevada on Wednesday that she lost her job teaching special needs students in the early 1970s because she was 'visibly pregnant'.

'By the end of the first year, I was visibly pregnant, and the principal did what principals did in those days - wish me luck and hire someone else for the job,' she told the crowd in Carson City.

However, a YouTube clip posted in January 2008 shows Warren giving a different explanation as to why she left that school.

In the video, she tells interviewer Harry Kreisler that her undergraduate degree was in speech pathology and audiology, and, as such, she didn't have the necessary educational requirements to continue on at the school.

According to her Wikipedia page, Warren was teaching at the school on an 'emergency certificate' and was required to return to graduate school to take extra courses in education.

Several viewers of the 2008 clip have left comments beneath the video wondering why there are now apparent discrepancies between her two stories.

'She needs to explain why she is now saying "principal did what principals do" and they fired her. Beyond her other fabrications, is this really someone we want for president?' one asked.

Trump shows what government is

Since the Democratic Party leadership and the mainstream mass media went into apoplectic disbelief that Trump won the presidential election in November 2016, they have been in a deep state of denial and determination.

Their denial is because they still cannot believe that someone like Trump could have been elected president of the United States. And they have been determined to reverse the outcome of the election, since “really” he was not the winner; after all, Hillary Clinton had more of the popular vote, while Trump “only” had won the electoral college majority. Besides, if not for those hacking Russian meddlers, the minds of American voters would not have been twisted in the wrong direction. History has to be undone in the name of “social justice” and democracy.

Mueller’s Failure Overcome by a Whistleblower’s Claim
The Mueller Report failed to provide the legal leverage to move forward with impeachment. There had not been demonstrable collusion between Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin’s government to influence the 2016 presidential election; and the Russian hacking and attempted social media manipulation could not be shown to have affected the outcome of the election. The Democrats had pinned so much hope on Robert Mueller, and, damn it, he let them down.

But, now, a whistleblower’s accusations seemed to give them the smoking gun the Democrats had been hoping for in their political dreams. Oh no! An American president attempted to influence a foreign government to investigate possible political corruption connecting the son of Trump’s leading potential Democratic Party rival for the presidency in the 2020 election. Hunter Biden may have been earning $50,000 a month as a board member of a Ukrainian energy company due to the influence of his father, Joe, while his father was vice president of the United States.

Plus, Trump seemed to use congressionally funded military aid to Ukraine as a “carrot” to get the Ukrainian government to dig up and provide the dirt to bolster “The Donald’s” chances for re-election in November 2020. Oh, the horror! Donald Trump may have used the office of the presidency to influence a foreign government with taxpayers’ money to gain a political advantage for himself.

The Nature of Politics: Power, Plunder, and Privilege for Some
Let us remember the nature of politics: it is the use of government power for plunder and privilege so some may gain at the expense of others in society through regulation or redistribution. It does not matter whether an absolute monarch, a totalitarian state, or a functioning democracy does this. It is the reason why those who are concerned with liberty and prosperity have insisted that governments always must be restrained and restricted to a limited and narrow set of functions and responsibilities for the protection of individual freedom, without becoming its destroyer.

If Donald Trump has one redeeming quality, it is his refreshing honesty. He rarely hides behind the rarified rhetoric of altruist promise-making typically heard in political discourse. He tells you who he is and what he wants. He knows where American businesses should invest to make what he considers “America great again,” and they better or there will be consequences. He knows which are the “bad” nations and trading partners, and he is going to teach them a lesson through either trade sanctions or import tariffs to get them to give Trump what he wants. And he will punish other countries that don’t go along with his executive ordering dictates and demands, because America comes first and he knows what America both needs and wants.

Like many other successful demagogues of the past, Donald Trump knows how to play to an audience. The words, the phrases, the short and repeated slogans and name callings that stick in the minds of those enticed by his assurances that all their problems will go away, if only he is in charge to set it all right. Anyone who does not agree with and fawn over his every word and deed is an enemy — an enemy of him and therefore to America. (See my article “The U.S. Revives the Personal State.”)

Modern Democratic Politics Is Trading Votes for Favors
But what has Donald Trump done — even if it is found to be technically against the law — that has not been done by politicians of both major political parties over the decades in both domestic policy and foreign affairs? Which politician does not offer a quid pro quo to voters that if they will only cast their ballot for him come Election Day, he will use taxpayers’ money to give them an unending stream of government-funded programs, subsidies, protections, and privileges?

That is the nature of the political arena of exchange in modern democratic society. Government is not primarily a protector of people’s individual rights; it is a huge and intricate tax-funded pumping machine that transfers wealth and income from certain groups and sectors of the society to others through a complex and interconnected network of federal, state, and municipal bureaucracies. Any freedoms preserved or any freedoms extended are the secondary effects of a political system operating with purposes in mind having little or nothing to do, per se, with human liberty anymore.

In foreign affairs, every U.S. administration in modern times, from Franklin Roosevelt’s to Donald Trump’s, has used political, military, and financial promises and pressures to get foreign governments to do what the president of that time wanted and considered “good for America” and the world. Whether or not some previous occupant of the Oval Office was as transparent as President Trump in making plain how self-serving it is, it was always considered good for the political future of that earlier chief executive, either for winning reelection into the Oval Office or influencing what would be his hoped-for legacy and “place in history.” (See my article “A Call for ‘Do-Nothing’ Presidents Without Legacies.”)

U.S. tax dollars have been used to support or overthrow foreign governments; tax-funded dollars have been used to arm dictators considered “friendly” to America, who often used that military aid to brutalize their own people; those tax dollars have been applied to influence elections and public opinion in other lands considered to be part of America’s “national interest.”

Mafia Bosses and Politicians Both Try to Eliminate Opposition
It often seems as if politicians think and act like a mafia boss. The godfather rarely says directly, “Get rid of ‘Vito the Knife’ tonight.” He says things more indirectly, like, “You know, life would be so much easier if only Vito stopped bothering me.” And his mafia lieutenants know exactly what he wants, just in case the FBI is bugging his office. Trump basically just says to the Ukrainian president, “Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, seem to have been part of Ukraine’s corruption problems. Why don’t you look into it and share any information you get with some representatives of mine? By the way, the U.S. has been a really good diplomatic and financial friend of the Ukraine compared to those misguided and financially stingy Europeans.”

Trump has simply personalized it more than most other former presidents before him, who tended to couch it in the rhetoric of the “common good,” the “general welfare,” and the “safety of the free world.” It is an inevitable part of any American foreign interventionist policy, just as its counterpart in domestic interventionist policies. Interventionism is the politics of regulation and redistribution. Virtually nothing that government touches in a world of interventionism fails to benefit some at others’ expense, given that all interventions inescapably divert the course of social and economic events from the patterns they would have followed if left free from government interference.

You want to eliminate Trump-like actions and policies? There is, ultimately, only one means and method to do so: End the interventionist-welfare state. Restore and relegate government to the limited and narrow protection of each individual’s right to his life, liberty, and honestly acquired property. Then there is nothing for government to sell and supply to Peter at Paul’s expense. But that is not the politics that either Democrats or Republicans want, as reflected in their campaign promises and policy deeds. Thus, the political circus will continue, regardless of who wins the White House or the congressional elections in 2020.
