(2017): Copper oxosulphates from fumaroles of Tolbachik Vulcano: puninite, Na2Cu3O(SO4)3 - a new mineral species and structure refinements of kamchatkite and alumoklyuchevskite. European Journal of Mineralogy, 29, 499-510.

Abstract:
Typical characteristics of many anhydrous sulphates of exhalative origin at fumaroles at the Second scoria cone of the Northern Breakthrough of the Great Tolbachik Fissure Eruption, Tolbachik volcano, Kamchatka, Russia, are the presence of additional oxygen atoms (Oa) in the composition. Recent field works on the fumaroles of the Second scoria cone in 2014 and 2015 resulted in discovery of a new mineral species, puninite, and collection of fresh alumoklyuchevskite and kamchatkite samples which allowed the re-refinement of crystal structures. The crystal structure of kamchatkite, KCu3O(SO4)2Cl, was solved and refined in Pnma space group (a = 9.755(2), b = 7.0152(15), c = 12.886(3) Å, V = 881.8(3)Å3, R1 = 0.021), whereas alumoklyuchevskite, K3Cu3AlO2(SO4)4, is triclinic, P-1; (a = 4.952(3), b = 11.978(6), c = 14.626(12) Å, α = 87.119(9), β = 80.251(9), γ = 78.070(9)°, V = 836.3 (9)Å3, R1 = 0.049) in contrast to previously reported data.
The new mineral puninite, ideally Na2Cu3O(SO4)3, was found in sublimates of Glavnaya Tenoritovaya fumarole. The mineral is named in honor of the Russian crystallographer Yurii Olegovich Punin (1941–2014). Puninite is closely associated with lammerite-β, tenorite, hematite and anhydrite. Puninite is emerald-green in colour. It is biaxial, optically positive, α = 1.587(2), β = 1.611(2), γ = 1.649(2), 2Vcalc=60°. The mineral is soluble in water. The empirical formula of puninite based on 13 O atoms is (Na1.76K0.08)Σ1.84(Cu2.97Zn0.04)Σ3.01(SO4)3.02O0.92. Puninite is the first Na-dominant copper oxosulfate mineral observed on Second scoria cone. It is monoclinic, C2/c, a = 17.41(1), b = 9.39(1), c = 14.40(1) Å, β = 112.04(7)°, V = 2183(2)Å3, Z = 8. The eight strongest lines of the X-ray powder diffraction pattern are (I-d-hkl): 100-8.058-200, 18.88-6.675- 00&2macr;, 28.47-6.466- 20&2macr;, 14.1-4.398-202, 17.37-4.247- 11&3macr;, 33.89-3.839- 02&2macr;, 29.15-2.854- 22&4macr;, 14.95-2.724- 02&4macr;. Puninite is structurally related to euchlorine, NaKCu3O(SO4)3 and to fedotovite, K2Cu3O(SO4)3. The unit-cell a parameter value is very sensitive to the K-Na ratio in “euchlorine group” minerals. The crystal structure of puninite (R1 = 0.035) is based on oxocentred [O2Cu6]8+ dimers. Four sulphate tetrahedra are ‘face-to-face’ attached to the dimers, whereas the other sulphate tetrahedral groups provide their linkage in two dimensions. The structural architecture of all the copper-oxosulphate exhalative minerals described in this paper can be described as being organized via a “host–guest” principle.

Abstract:
Wampenite, C18H16, is a new organic mineral from the fossil wood (conifer) locality at Wampen, Fichtelgebirge, Bavaria, Germany. It is monoclinic, space group P21/a, with a = 6.7331(19), b = 8.689(3), c = 23.709(7) Å, β = 90.118(6)°, V = 1387.0(7)Å3 and Z = 4. Its structure was determined by single-crystal X-ray diffraction, which revealed that the molecular structure comprises an aromatic phenanthrene moiety with an axial methyl group at one end and a disordered propen-2-yl (methylvinyl) terminal group at the other. High resolution mass spectrometry (HRMS) confirmed the molecular formula C18H16 and the IR spectrum is consistent with the molecular structure found.
          Crystal chemistry of Al–V–Cr oxy-tourmalines from Sludyanka complex, Lake Baikal, Russia (no replies)   
Reference:
▪ Bosi, F., Reznitskii, L., Halenius, U., Skogby, H. (2017): Crystal chemistry of Al–V–Cr oxy-tourmalines from Sludyanka complex, Lake Baikal, Russia. European Journal of Mineralogy, 29, 457-472.

Abstract:
Twelve Al–V–Cr oxy-tourmalines from the Sludyanka crystalline complex (Russia) were structurally and chemically characterized by single-crystal X-ray diffraction and electron microprobe analysis. Three samples were also optically characterized by optical absorption spectroscopy and refractive index measurements. The data obtained and those of fourteen earlier studied oxy-tourmalines from the same locality show a complete substitution series due to the replacement of Al ↔ V3+ ↔ Cr3+. The cation site distribution results show that Mg has a strong preference for the Z site, whereas the trivalent cations have a preference for Y and Z controlled by their size: YV3+ > YCr >> YAl and ZAl >> ZCr > ZV3+.
In accordance with the bond-valence theory, the observed increase of F content with increasing Cr content may be interpreted by the occurrence of the local arrangements O1(F)–Y(CrCrCr) and Z[Cr(Cr,Mg)]–O3(O2−)–Y(Cr), while the incorporation of V3+ into the oxy-tourmaline structure is controlled by the local arrangement O1(O2−)–Y(VVV).
The unit-cell parameters (a and c) are strictly correlated to each other and can be expressed by a quadratic relation dependent on the mean-bond distances 〈Z–O〉 and 〈X–O〉. A strong positive correlation between (V + Cr) content and mean refractive index is proposed as a reliable guide to derive the composition of Al–V–Cr oxy-tourmalines from refractive-index measurements.
          A new uranyl phosphate sheet in the crystal structure of furongite (no replies)   
Reference:
▪ Dal Bo, F., Hatert, F., Philippo, S. (2017): A new uranyl phosphate sheet in the crystal structure of furongite. European Journal of Mineralogy, 29, 517-527.

Abstract:
The crystal structure of furongite, Al4[(UO2)4(PO4)6](OH)2(H2O)19.5, from the Kobokobo pegmatite, Kivu, Democratic Republic of Congo, was solved for the first time. Furongite is triclinic, the space group P-1;, Z=2, a = 12.1685(8), b = 14.1579(6), c = 17.7884(6) , α = 79.822(3), β = 77.637(4), γ = 67.293(2)°, and V = 2746.2(2)3. The crystal structure was refined from single-crystal X-ray diffraction data to R1 = 0.0733 for 7716 unique observed reflections, and to wR2 = 0.2081 for all 12,538 unique reflections. The structure of furongite contains infinite uranyl phosphate sheets of composition [(UO2)4(PO4)6]10- which are parallel to (1 0 1). The sheets are constituted by UrO5 pentagonal bipyramids and PO4 tetrahedra which share edges and vertices, and adjacent sheets are linked by a dense network of hydrogen bonds. Running through the sheets and connected mainly to the free apical oxygen atom of PO4 tetrahedra are Al octahedra connected together to form remarkable Al2O5(OH)(H2O)5 and Al4O8(OH)2(H2O)10 clusters. These Al clusters are only bonded to one sheet, and do not connect two adjacent sheets together. The topology of the uranyl phosphate sheets is related to the uranophane anion topology, and can be described as a new geometrical isomer of the uranophane group. Furongite is the first uranyl phosphate reported in nature with a U:P ratio of 2:3.
          Crystal-chemical relations and classification problems belonging to the oxy-schorl – oxy-dravite – bosiite – povondraite series (no replies)

▪ Bosi, F., Cámara, F., Ciriotti, M.E., Hålenius, U., Reznitskii, L., Stagno, V. (2017): Crystal-chemical relations and classification problems in tourmalines belonging to the oxy-schorl – oxy-dravite – bosiite – povondraite series. European Journal of Mineralogy, 29, 445-455.

Abstract:
Two oxy-tourmalines showing intermediate compositions between the oxy-schorl and oxy-dravite series (sample from Sludyanka crystalline complex, Baikal, Russia) and the oxy-dravite and bosiite series (sample from the Valletta mine, Piedmont, Italy) were structurally and chemically characterized by single-crystal X-ray diffraction, electron microprobe analysis, optical absorption and Synchrotron Mössbauer source spectroscopy. A comparative analysis of the results, along with data from literature on additional samples corresponding to the species oxy-schorl, oxy-dravite, bosiite and povondraite, show that the main structural variations within the Fe-bearing, Na-dominant oxy-tourmalines are related to variations in the content of Fe, which is incorporated into the structure via substitution mechanisms that involves Al. The results also show the occurrence of a complete substitution series from oxy-schorl via oxy-dravite and bosiite to povondraite, but no (or a limited) direct substitution series between oxy-schorl and bosiite (or povondraite). The substitution of Al by larger cations causes changes in ⟨Y–O⟩ and ⟨Z–O⟩ distances as well as in the unit-cell parameters. The effect of ⟨Y–O⟩ on the a-parameter is evident in the oxy-schorl–oxy-dravite series, but it is of marginal significance in the oxy-dravite–bosiite–povondraite series. On the other hand, a good correlation exists between ⟨Z–O⟩ and the a-parameter only in the oxy-dravite–bosiite–povondraite series. The c-parameter is strongly correlated with ⟨Z–O⟩ along the entire substitution series.
Classification problems related to the naming of Fe-bearing, Na-dominant oxy-tourmalines are discussed. Application of the nomenclature rules in force resulted in ambiguous naming of the studied samples. This makes, for example, direct comparisons of physical and chemical properties of tourmalines originating from different deposits difficult.
          Neolithic Tomb Unearthed in England   
SILSDEN, ENGLAND—Archaeologists digging at a future construction site in northern England have unearthed the remains of a large collective burial monument known as a barrow, reports Keighley Online. Measuring around 100 feet wide, the barrow consists of two ditches and was in use around 5,000 to 4,500 years ago, during the late Neolithic and early Bronze Age. At the center of the site, the team unearthed an incised funerary urn containing cremated remains, likely the barrow's primary burial. The team plans to X-ray the urn before removing its contents. Other finds included pottery, stone tools, and another cremated burial dating to the early Bronze Age. To read in-depth about this period in British prehistory, go to “Neolithic Europe's Remote Heart.”

Abstract
Kaolin as a SiO2 Source for Ni/SiO2 Catalyst Syntheses: Characterization and Application of Catalyst for Hydrogenation Benzene to Cyclohexane. Kaolin one of clay minerals has been employed as a SiO2 source and produced a mixture of two type SiO2, quartz and quartz alpha, with the amount of 60 % of kaolin used. The SiO2 produced had been diverted to silica gel and used as supporting agent for Ni/SiO2 catalyst through impregnation of Ni(NO3)2 solution to form Ka and Kb catalysts, that having surface area smaller than the silica gel. The pore size and volume of Ka catalyst is bigger than Kb catalyst. Catalytic properties of Ni/SiO2 catalysts have been investigated for benzene hydrogenation and resulting Ka catalyst had produced more cyclohexane than Kb catalyst.
Keywords: kaolin, silica gel, Ni/SiO2 catalyst, benzene hydrogenation, cyclohexane

1. Pendahuluan
Kaolin atau “Kaolinite” termasuk jenis mineral clay dengan formula Al2O3.2SiO2.2H2O. Nama kaolin berasal dari bahasa Cina “Kau-Ling” yaitu suatu daerah di Cina yang banyak mengandung mineral ini. Kaolin mengandung SiO2 sekitar 50 %, oleh karena itu kaolin dapat digunakan sebagai sumber SiO2 untuk pembuatan silika gel. Silika gel berupa padatan amorf dan berpori yang terbentuk dari proses polimerisasi asam silikat dan mempunyai sifat inert, netral, luas permukaannya besar, dan memiliki daya adsorpsi besar. Oleh karena itu silika gel banyak digunakan sebagai adsorben anorganik, penyerap air, dan sebagai fasa diam pada kromatografi lapisan tipis dan kromatografi gas [1-4].
Pada umumnya hampir semua logam transisi dapat digunakan untuk katalis, karena logam transisi kaya akan elektron, telah mengisi orbital 3d dan memiliki elektron tidak berpasangan sehingga mudah berikatan dengan atom lain. Salah satunya adalah logam Ni yang mempunyai konfigurasi elektron [Ar] 3d84s2 yang banyak digunakan sebagai katalis hidrogenasi alkena [5-9]. Katalis logam nikel mempunyai aktivitas dan selektivitas yang baik dalam suatu reaksi, namun fasa aktif katalis nikel sendiri tidak memiliki permukaan yang luas, sehingga reaksi menjadi tidak efektif dan efisien karena tidak seluruh pusat aktifnya dapat mengadakan kontak dengan reaktan. Oleh karena itu logam nikel perlu didistribusikan pada suatu permukaan padatan penyangga yang memiliki luas permukaan besar, dan pada penelitian ini telah berhasil dibuat katalis Ni/SiO2, dengan cara impregnasi logam Ni pada matriks silika gel yang disintesa dari kaolin [1-2, 6-12]. Katalis Ni/SiO2 yang dihasilkan juga telah dikarakterisasi dengan XRD, IR, BET dan

keasamannya, serta diuji coba pada reaksi hidrogenasi benzena menjadi siklo heksana.
2. Metode Penelitian
Pada penelitian ini, tahap pertama yang dilakukan adalah membuat silika gel dari kaolin yang banyak mengandung unsur silika. Kemudian silika gel yang dihasilkan diimpregnasi dengan logam Ni dan katalis Ni/SiO2 yang dihasilkan dicoba pada hidrogenasi benzena menjadi siklo heksana.
Isolasi SiO2 dari Kaolin
Kaolin (100 gram ) dipanaskan 800 oC dalam tanur selama 6 jam untuk menghasilkan kaolin metastabil. Kemudian ke dalam 40,0 gram kaolin metastabil ditambahkan 15 mL air, 280 mL HCl pekat dan 94 mL HNO3 pekat (aqua regia), lalu direfluk pada 100 oC selama 4 jam dengan pengadukan merata. Setelah dingin, ke dalam campuran ditambahkan lagi 90 mL HCl pekat dan 30 mL HNO3 pekat untuk dilakukan refluks kembali. Hasil refluks disaring dan endapan SiO2 dicuci dengan aquademin hingga bebas asam kemudian dikeringkan dalam oven pada suhu 110 oC.
Penentuan Kadar SiO2
SiO2 hasil isolasi (1,0 gram) dikeringkan hingga didapat berat yang konstan (berat 1). Kemudian 1,0 gram SiO2 yang sama dilarutkan dengan menambahkan 1,0 mL air, 5,0 mL HF dan 2-3 tetes H2SO4 pekat di dalam krusibel platina. Kemudian larutan tersebut dipanaskan (tidak mendidih) hingga HF menguap (sekitar 1 jam), lalu dipanaskan kembali pada suhu 1.050 oC dalam tanur selama 15 menit. Residu didinginkan dalam desikator dan ditimbang hingga konstan (berat 2). Selisih berat 1 dan berat 2 adalah berat SiO2 murni.
Pembuatan Silika Gel
SiO2 yang dihasilkan dari kaolin dicampur dengan Na2CO3 (natrium karbonat) dengan perbandingan mol 1 :1 (6,0 gr SiO2 + 6,0 gr Na2CO3) kemudian digerus hingga halus dan homogen. Campuran dilebur dalam tanur 800 oC selama 3 jam, dan Na2SiO3 yang dihasilkan didiamkan selama semalam, kemudian direndam dalam aquademin selama 12 jam. Endapan yang tersisa dipisahkan dari filtratnya dengan penyaringan, dan endapan dicuci dengan aquademin. Air cucian dan filtrat dicampur dan ditambahkan larutan 6,0 M HNO3 setetes demi setetes dengan pengadukan hingga terbentuk silika hidrosol, kemudian didiamkan selama 2 malam, agar polimerisasi asam silikat berlangsung sempurna membentuk silika hidrogel. Gel SiO2 yang terbentuk disaring dan dicuci hingga bening, kemudian dikeringkan hingga beratnya konstan dalam oven pada suhu 110 oC.
Pembuatan Katalis Ni/SiO2
Pembuatan katalis Ni/SiO2 dilakukan dengan dua cara, yaitu;
a. Ke dalam empat wadah yang masing-masingnya berisi 25 mL larutan Ni(NO3)2 dengan konsentrasi 0,5; 1,0; 1,5; dan 2,0 M ditambahkan 5,0 gr silika gel, diaduk selama 2 jam dan dibiarkan selama 24 jam. Campuran disaring dan endapan dikeringkan selama 2 jam dalam oven dengan suhu 110 oC, kemudian dikalsinasi pada suhu 500 oC selama 2 jam. Selanjutnya katalis ini disebut katalis a (Ka), dan empat katalis a ini dinamakan Ka-1 untuk penambahan larutan Ni(NO3)2 dengan konsentrasi 0,5 M; Ka-2 (1,0 M); Ka-3 (1,5 M) dan Ka-4 (2,0 M).
b. Dibuat sejumlah hidrosol seperti prosedur 2.3., kemudian dibagi 4 bagian dan ke dalam masing-masing bagian ditambahkan 25 mL larutan Ni(NO3)2 dengan konsentrasi 0,5; 1,0; 1,5; dan 2,0 M sambil diaduk merata. Ke dalam campuran ditambahkan HNO3 6,0 M setetes demi setetes hingga terbentuk gel. Kemudian gel disaring dan dicuci hingga bening, dikeringkan dalam oven (110 oC; 2 jam) dan dikalsinasi pada suhu 500 oC selama 2 jam. Selanjutnya katalis ini disebut katalis b (Kb), dan empat katalis jenis b ini dinamakan Kb-1 untuk penambahan larutan Ni(NO3)2 dengan konsentrasi 0,5 M; Kb-2 (1,0 M); Kb-3 (1,5 M) dan Kb-4 (2,0 M).

Uji Katalis Ni/SiO2
Penentuan Jumlah Ni yang Terdapat dalam Katalis. Katalis Ni/SiO2 (0,5 g) dilarutkan dengan cara menambahkan tetes demi tetes HF di dalam wadah plastik dan diencerkan dengan aquademin hingga 50,0 mL. Larutan ini kemudian diencerkan kembali hingga 100 kalinya, lalu dianalisa dengan menggunakan alat AAS.
Uji Keasaman Katalis. Uji keasaman katalis dilakukan pada reaktor unggun tetap (fixed bed reactor). Katalis dibentuk menjadi pelet kemudian dihaluskan dan di ayak hingga homogen dengan ukuran 0,125 – 0,5 mm. Seberat 0,5 gram katalis dimasukkan ke dalam tempat sampel dan direduksi dengan mengalirkan gas H2 (40 mL/menit; bypass) pada suhu 500 oC selama 2 jam. Setelah selesai suhu reaktor diturunkan menjadi 200 oC, tempat sample (bubler) diisi larutan amonia kemudian dialiri gas N2 untuk membawa uap amonia kepada katalis, agar terjadi adsorbsi amonia oleh katalis. Kemudian katalis dikeluarkan dari reaktor dan dinalisa dengan FTIR untuk mengetahui gugus asam Bronsted dan asam Lewis.
Uji Sifat Katalitik. Uji katalitik dari katalis Ni/SiO2 dilakukan pada reaksi hidrogenasi benzena menjadi siklo heksana dalam reaktor unggun tetap (fixed bed reactor). Reduksi katalis dan uji sifat katalitik dilakukan pada kondisi yang sama yaitu, laju alir H2 dan benzena MAKARA, SAINS, VOLUME 12, NO. 1, APRIL 2008: 37-43 39

40 mL/menit, suhu reaktor 200 oC. Hasil reaksi ditampung dalam suatu trapper yang dingin kemudian dianalisa dengan alat GC-FID (laju alir N2 50 mL/menit; Tinjeksi 100 oC ; Tkolom 50 oC ; Tdetektor 200 oC dan kolom yang digunakan squalen).
3. Hasil dan Pembahasan
Sebelum sampel kaolin digunakan, terlebih dahulu dilakukan uji dengan X-Ray Diffraction (XRD) [11-17]. Hasil analisa XRD sampel kaolin memperlihatkan nilai d yang serupa dengan nilai d kaolin standar (Tabel 1), hal ini menunjukkan bahwa sampel yang digunakan adalah kaolin.
Setelah itu, sampel kaolin tersebut digunakan untuk pembuatan silika gel, yang selanjutnya digunakan untuk pembuatan katalis Ni/SiO2.
Pembuatan Silika Gel. Untuk menghasilkan SiO2 sampel kaolin dipanaskan pada suhu 800 oC selama 6 jam untuk diubah menjadi kaolin metastabil. Suhu 800 oC dipilih berdasarkan data TGA/DTA perubahan kaolin seperti terlihat pada Gambar 1 [18], karena pada suhu tersebut ikatan Si-O-Al menjadi lemah. Jika digunakan suhu lebih rendah dari 800 oC (misal suhu 450-700 oC), maka hanya menghasilkan peristiwa dehidroksilasi (pelepasan air) dari kristal seperti persamaan ;
Al2O3.2SiO2.2H2O → Al2O3.2SiO2 + H2O (1)
Setelah ikatan Si-O-Al lemah, dengan penambahan asam kuat diharapkan Si dapat terpisah dari Al, untuk itu kaolin metastabil direfluks dengan aqua regia (campuran HNO3 pekat dan HCl pekat). Hasil refluks diperoleh endapan SiO2 dan larutan berwarna kuning kehijauan yang mengandung senyawa dari logam-logam pengotor seperti Al, Fe, Mn, Mg, P, Ca dan K yang terdapat dalam kaolin. SiO2 yang dihasilkan di analisa dengan cara melarutkannya dengan HF dan H2SO4 pekat. Silika akan berubah menjadi SiF4 dan me nguap, sedangkan pengotor lain yang tersisa, seperti Al2O3 dan Fe2O3 berubah menjadi bentuk floridanya yang kemudian berubah kembali menjadi bentuk oksida setelah bereaksi dengan H2SO4 pada suhu 1.050-1.100 oC seperti persamaan reaksi 2-6. Selisih antara berat awal SiO2 dengan berat senyawa oksida pengotor dihasilkan berat SiO2 murni, yaitu sekitar 60 % dari berat awal kaolin yang digunakan.
SiO2 + 6 HF → H2(SiF6) + 2 H2O (2)
H2(SiF6) → SiF4 + 2 HF (3)
Al2O3 + 6 HF → 2 AlF3 + 3 H2O (4)
2 AlF3 + 3 H2SO4 → Al2(SO4)3 + 6 HF (5)
Al2(SO4)3 → Al2O3 + SO3 (6)
Data XRD produk SiO2 (Tabel 2 dan 3) menunjukkan bahwa produk merupakan suatu campuran yang terdiri dari 2 jenis SiO2 yaitu SiO2 quartz dan SiO2 quartz alpha.
Reaksi SiO2 yang dihasilkan dari kaolin dengan Na2CO3 (1:1) menghasilkan Na2SiO3 (waterglass) yang mudah larut dalam air.
SiO2 + Na2CO3 → Na2SiO3 + CO2 (7)

          Top 10 discoveries about waves    

Gravitational radiation reminds science of its debts to the physics of waves

Context
surfer on a wave

CATCH A WAVE Physicists are the surfers of science, with a long history of fascination with waves.

Physics fans are a lot like surfers. Both think waves are really fun.

For surfers, it’s all about having a good time. For physicists, it’s about understanding some of nature’s most important physical phenomena. Yet another detection of gravitational waves, announced June 1, further reinvigorates the world’s science fans’ excitement over waves.

Waves have naturally always been a topic of scientific and mathematical interest. They play a part in an enormous range of physical processes, from heat and light to radio and TV, sonograms and music, earthquakes and holograms. (Waves used to even be a common sight in baseball stadiums, but fans got tired of standing up and down and it was really annoying anyway.)

Many of science’s greatest achievements have been discoveries of new kinds of waves or new insights into wave motion. Identifying just the Top 10 such discoveries (or ideas) is therefore difficult and bound to elicit critical comments from cult members of particular secret wave societies. So remember, if your favorite wave isn’t on this list, it would have been No. 11.

10.  Thomas Young: Light is a wave.

In the opening years of the 19th century, the English physician Young tackled a long-running controversy about the nature of light. A century earlier, Isaac Newton had argued forcibly for the view that light consisted of (very small) particles. Newton’s contemporary Christiaan Huygens strongly disagreed, insisting that light traveled through space as a wave.

Through a series of clever experiments, Young demonstrated strong evidence for waves. Poking two tiny holes in a thick sheet of paper, Young saw that light passing through created alternating bands of light and darkness on a surface placed on the other side of the paper. That was just as expected if light passing through the two holes interfered just as water waves do, canceling out when crest met trough or enhancing when crests met “in phase.” Young did not work out his wave theory with mathematical rigor and so Newton’s defenders resisted, attempting to explain away Young’s results.

But soon Augustin Jean Fresnel in France worked out the math of light waves in detail. And in 1850, when Jean-Bernard-Léon Foucault showed that light travels faster in air than water, the staunchest Newton fans had to capitulate. Newton himself would have acknowledged that light must therefore consist of waves. (Much later, though, Einstein found a way that light could in fact consist of particles, which came to be called photons.)

9. Michelson and Morley: Light waves don’t vibrate anything.

Waves are vibrations, implying the need for something to vibrate. Sound vibrated molecules in the air, for instance, and ocean waves vibrated molecules of water. Light, supposedly, vibrated an invisible substance called the ether.

In 1887, Albert A. Michelson and his collaborator Edward Morley devised an experiment to detect that ether. Earth’s motion through the ether should have meant that light’s velocity would depend on its direction. (Traveling with the Earth’s motion, light’s speed wouldn’t be the same as traveling at right angles to the direction of motion.) Michelson and Morley figured they could detect that difference by exploiting the interference phenomena discovered by Young. But their apparatus failed to find any ether effect. They thought their experiment was flawed. But later Einstein figured out there actually wasn’t any ether.

8. James Clerk Maxwell: Light is an electromagnetic wave.

Maxwell died in 1879, the year Einstein was born, and so did not know there wasn’t an ether. He did figure out, though, that both electricity and magnetism could be explained by stresses in some such medium.

Electric and magnetic charges in the ether ought to generate disturbances in the form of waves, Maxwell realized. Based on the strengths of those forces he calculated that the waves would travel at the fantastic speed of 310 million meters per second, suspiciously close to the best recent measurements of the speed of light (those measurements ranged from 298 million to 315 million meters per second). So Maxwell, without the benefit of ever having watched NCIS on TV, then invoked Gibbs’ Rule 39 (there’s no such thing as a coincidence) and concluded that light was an example of an electromagnetic wave.

“It seems we have strong reason to conclude that light itself (including radiant heat, and other radiations if any) is an electromagnetic disturbance in the form of waves propagated through the electromagnetic field,” he wrote in 1864. His “other radiations, if any” turned out to be an entire spectrum of all sorts of cool waves, from gamma radiation to radio signals.

7. Heinrich Hertz: Radio waves.

Not very many people took Maxwell seriously at first. A few, though, known as the Maxwellians, promoted his ideas. One physicist who had faith in Maxwell, or at least in his equations, was Hertz, who performed experiments in his lab in Karlsruhe, Germany, that successfully produced and detected radio waves, eventually to be exploited by propagandists to spread a lot of illogical nonsense on talk radio.

His success inspired much more respect for the equations in Maxwell’s theory, which Hertz found almost magical: “It is impossible to study this wonderful theory without feeling as if the mathematical equations had an independent life and an intelligence of their own, as if they were wiser than ourselves,” Hertz said. His prime experimental success came in 1887, the same year that Michelson and Morley failed to detect the ether. Hertz died in 1894, long before his discovery was put to widespread use.

6. John Michell: Seismic waves.

Michell, an English geologist and astronomer, was motivated by the great Lisbon earthquake of 1755 to investigate the cause of earthquakes. In 1760 he concluded that “subterraneous fires” should be blamed, noting that volcanoes — “burning mountains” — commonly occur in the same neighborhood as frequent earthquakes.

Michell noted that “the motion of the earth in earthquakes is … partly propagated by waves, which succeed one another sometimes at larger and sometimes at smaller distances.” He cited witness accounts of quakes in which the ground rose “like the sea in a wave.” Much later seismologists developed a more precise understanding of the seismic waves that shake the Earth, using them as probes to infer the planet’s inner structure.

5. Wilhelm Röntgen: X-rays.

Roentgen's first x-ray of his wife's handWhen Hertz discovered radio waves, he knew he was looking for the long-wavelength radiation foreshadowed in Maxwell’s equations. But a few years later, in 1895, Röntgen found the radio wave counterpart of the opposite end of the electromagnetic spectrum — by accident.

Mysterious short-wavelength rays of an unknown type (therefore designated X) emerged when Röntgen shot cathode rays (beams of electrons) through a glass tube. Röntgen suspected that his creation might be a new kind of wave among the many Maxwell had anticipated: “There seems to exist some kind of relationship between the new rays and light rays; at least this is indicated by the formation of shadows,” Röntgen wrote. Those shadows, of course, became the basis for a revolutionary medical technology.

Besides providing a major new tool for observing shattered bones and other structures inside the body, X-rays eventually became essential tools for scientific investigation in astronomy, biology and other fields. And they shattered the late 19th century complacency of physicists who thought they’d basically figured everything out about nature. Weirdly, though, X-rays later turned out to be particles sometimes, validating Einstein’s ideas that light had an alter ego particle identity. (By the way, it turned out that X-rays aren’t the electromagnetic waves with the shortest wavelengths — gamma rays can be even shorter. Maybe they would be No. 11.)

4. Epicurus: The swerve.

Not exactly a wave in the ordinary sense, the swerve was a deviation from straight line motion postulated by the Greek philosopher Epicurus around 300 B.C. Unlike Aristotle, Epicurus believed in atoms, and argued that reality was built entirely from the random collisions of an infinite number of those tiny particles. Supposedly, he thought, atoms would all just fall straight down to the center of the universe unless some unpredictable “swerve” occasionally caused them to deviate from their paths so they would bounce off each other and congregate into complex structures.

It has not escaped the attention of modern philosophers that the Epicurean unpredictable swerve is a bit like the uncertainty in particle motions introduced by quantum mechanics. Which has its own waves. 

3. Louis de Broglie: Matter waves.

In the early 1920s, de Broglie noticed a peculiar connection between relativity and quantum physics. Max Planck’s famous quantum formula related energy to frequency of a wave motion. Einstein’s special relativity related energy to the mass of a particle. De Broglie thought it would make a fine doctoral dissertation to work out the implications of two seemingly separate things both related to energy. If energy equals mass (times the speed of light squared) and energy equals frequency (time Planck’s constant), then voilà, mass equals frequency (times some combination of the constants). Therefore, de Broglie reasoned, particles (of mass) ought to also exist as waves (with a frequency).

That might have seemed wacky, but Einstein read de Broglie’s thesis and thought it made sense. Soon Walter Elsasser in Germany reported experiments that supported de Broglie, and in America Clinton Davisson and coworkers demonstrated conclusively that electrons did in fact exhibit wave properties.

De Broglie won the physics Nobel Prize in 1929; Davisson shared the 1937 Nobel with George Thomson, who had conducted similar experiments showing electrons are waves. Which was ironic, because George’s father, J.J. Thomson, won the 1906 Nobel for the work that revealed the existence of the electron as a particle. Eight decades later Ernst Ruska won a Nobel for his design of a powerful microscope that exploited the electron’s wave behavior.

2. Max Born: Probability waves.

De Broglie’s idea ignited a flurry of activity among physicists trying to figure out how waves fit into quantum theory. Niels Bohr, for instance, spent considerable effort attempting to reconcile the dual wave-particle nature of both electrons and light. Erwin Schrödinger, meanwhile, developed a full-fledged “wave mechanics” to describe the behavior of electrons in atoms solely from the wave perspective. Schrödinger’s math incorporated a “wave function” that was great for calculating the expected results of experiments, even though some experiments clearly showed electrons to be particles.

Born, a German physicist and good friend of Einstein’s, deduced the key to clarifying the wave function: It was an indicator of the probability of finding the particle in a given location. Combined with Werner Heisenberg’s brand-new uncertainty principle, Born’s realization led to the modern view that an electron is wavelike in the sense that it does not possess a definite location until it is observed. That approach works fine for all practical purposes, but physicists and philosophers still engage in vigorous debates today about the true physical status of the wave function.

1. LIGO: Gravitational waves.

graph of gravitational wave detectionSoon after he completed his general theory of relativity, Einstein realized that it implied the possibility of gravitational radiation — vibrations of spacetime itself.  He had no idea, though, that by spending a billion dollars, physicists a century later could actually detect those spacetime ripples. But thanks to lasers (which maybe would have been No. 11), the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory — two huge labs in Louisiana and Washington state — captured the spacetime shudders emitted from a pair of colliding black holes in September 2015.

That detection is certainly one of the most phenomenal experimental achievements in the history of science. It signaled a new era in astronomy, providing astronomers a tool for probing the depths of the universe that are obscured from view with Maxwell’s “other radiations, if any.” For astronomy, gravitational radiation is the wave of the future.

          On This Day in Math - July 1   

Mathematics, rightly viewed, possesses not only truth, but supreme beauty
a beauty cold and austere, like that of sculpture, 
without appeal to any part of our weaker nature,
without the gorgeous trappings of painting or music, 
yet sublimely pure, and capable of a stern perfection such as only the greatest art can show. 
 The true spirit of delight, the exaltation, 
the sense of being more than Man, 
which is the touchstone of the highest excellence, 
is to be found in mathematics as surely as in poetry.
--BERTRAND RUSSELL,


The 182nd day of the year; there are 182 connected bipartite graphs with 8 vertices. *What's So Special About This Number

The 182nd prime (1091) is the smaller of a pair of twin primes (the 40th pair, actually) *Math Year-Round ‏@MathYearRound(Students might convince themselves that it was not necessary to say it was the smaller of the pair.)

Language time:
182 is called a pronic, promic, or heteromecic and even an oblong number. Pronic Numbers are numbers that are the product of two consecutive integers; 2, 6, 12, 20, ..(doubles of triangular numbers).  Pronic seems to be a misspelling of promic, from the Greek promekes, for rectangular, oblate or oblong. Neither pronic nor promic seems to appear in most modern dictionaries. Richard Guy pointed out to the Hyacinthos newsgroup that pronic had been used by Euler in series one, volume fifteen of his Opera, so the mathematical use of the "n" form has a long history.

Oblong is from the Latin ob (excessive) + longus (long). The word oblong is also commonly used as an alternate name for a rectangle. In his translation of Euclid's "Elements", Sir Thomas Heath translates the Greek word eteromhkes[hetero mekes - literally "different lengths"] in Book one, Definition 22 as oblong. . "Of Quadrilateral figures, a square is that which is both equilateral and right-angled; an oblong that which is right angled but not equilateral...". (note that with this definition, a square is not a subset of rectangles.)

1349 Sometimes, a little astronomical knowledge can be a dangerous thing, even to those who possess it. A tale from medieval England is passed down from the chronicles of the scholar Thomas Bradwardine of a witch who attempted to force her will on the people through knowledge of an impending eclipse. Bradwardine, who had studied astronomical predictions of Arabian astronomers, saw through the ruse, and matched the prediction of the July 01, 1349 A.D. lunar eclipse with a more precise one of his own. No word survives as to the fate of the accused, but one can only suspect banishment or worse.*listosaur.com

Horner's method describes a manual process by which one may approximate the roots of a polynomial equation. The Horner scheme can also be viewed as a fast algorithm for dividing a polynomial by a linear polynomial with Ruffini's rule. Student's often learn this process as synthetic division.  *Wik

In 1858, the Wallace-Darwin theory of evolution was first published at the Linnaean Society in London*. The previous month Charles Darwin received a letter from Alfred Wallace, who was collecting specimens in the East Indies. Wallace had independently developed a theory of natural selection - which was almost identical to Darwin's. The letter asked Darwin to evaluate the theory, and if worthy of publication, to forward the manuscript to Charles Lyell. Darwin did so, almost giving up his clear priority for he had not yet published his masterwork The Origin of Species. Neither Darwin nor Wallace were present for the oral presentation at the Linnaean Society, where geologist Charles Lyell and botanist Joseph Hooker presented both Wallace's paper and excerpts from Darwin's unpublished 1844 essay.*TIS

BIRTHS

1646 Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz (July 1, 1646 – November 14, 1716) born in Leipzig, Germany. Leibniz occupies a prominent place in the history of mathematics and the history of philosophy. He developed the infinitesimal calculus independently of Isaac Newton, and Leibniz's mathematical notation has been widely used ever since it was published. He became one of the most prolific inventors in the field of mechanical calculators. While working on adding automatic multiplication and division to Pascal's calculator, he was the first to describe a pinwheel calculator in 1685[4] and invented the Leibniz wheel, used in the arithmometer, the first mass-produced mechanical calculator. He also refined the binary number system, which is at the foundation of virtually all digital computers. In philosophy, Leibniz is mostly noted for his optimism, e.g. his conclusion that our Universe is, in a restricted sense, the best possible one that God could have created. Leibniz, along with René Descartes and Baruch Spinoza, was one of the three great 17th century advocates of rationalism. The work of Leibniz anticipated modern logic and analytic philosophy, but his philosophy also looks back to the scholastic tradition, in which conclusions are produced by applying reason to first principles or a priori definitions rather than to empirical evidence. Leibniz made major contributions to physics and technology, and anticipated notions that surfaced much later in biology, medicine, geology, probability theory, psychology, linguistics, and information science. He wrote works on politics, law, ethics, theology, history, philosophy, and philology. Leibniz's contributions to this vast array of subjects were scattered in various learned journals, in tens of thousands of letters, and in unpublished manuscripts. As of 2010, there is no complete gathering of the writings of Leibniz.*Wik

1779 John Farrar (July 1, 1779 – May 8, 1853) born at Lincoln, Massachusetts. As Hollis professor of mathematics and natural philosophy at Harvard, he was responsible for a sweeping modernization of the science and mathematics curriculum, including the change from Newton’s to Leibniz’s notation for the calculus. *VFR

1788 Jean Victor Poncelet (July 1, 1788 – December 22, 1867) born in Metz, France. He taught engineering and mechanics, but had a hobby of much greater interest—projective geometry. *VFR French mathematician and engineer whose study of the pole and polar lines associated with conic led to the principle of duality. While serving as an engineer in Napoleon's 1812 Russian campaign as an engineer, he was left for dead at Krasnoy, but then captured. During his imprisonment he studied projective geometry and wrote a treatise on analytic geometry. Released in 1814, he returned to France, and in 1822 published Traité des propriétés projectives des figures in which he presented his fundamental ideas of projective geometry such as the cross-ratio, perspective, involution and the circular points at infinity. As a professor of mechanics (1825-35), he applied mechanics to improve waterwheels and was able to double their efficiency.*TIS

1848 Emil Weyr (1 July 1848 in Prague, Bohemia (now Czech Republic) - 25 Jan 1894 in Vienna, Austria) His father Frantisek Weyr, was a professor of mathematics at a realschule (secondary school) in Prague from 1855. Emil was four years older than his brother Eduard Weyr who also became a famous mathematician. Emil attended the realschule in Prague where his father taught, then studied at the Prague Polytechnic from 1865 to 1868 where he was taught geometry by Vilém Fiedler.
He studied in Italy with Cremona and Casorati during the academic year 1870-71 returning to Prague where he continued to teach. In 1872 he was elected to be Head of the Union of Czech Mathematicians and Physicists. In 1875 he was appointed as professor of mathematics at the University of Vienna. He, together with his brother Eduard Weyr, were the main members of the Austrian geometric school. They were interested in descriptive geometry, then in projective geometry and their interests turned towards algebraic and synthetic methods in geometry. Among many works Emil Weyr published were Die Elemente der projectivischen Geometrie and Über die Geometrie der alten Aegypter.
Emil Weyr led the geometry school in Vienna throughout the 1880's up until his death. Together with Gustav von Escherich, Emil Weyr founded the important mathematical journal Monatshefte fuer Mathematik und Physik in 1890. The first volumes of the journal contain papers written by his brother Eduard. In 1891 Emil Weyr became one of the first 19 founder members of the Royal Czech Academy of Sciences. *SAU

1906 Jean Dieudonn´e (1 July 1906 – 29 November 1992) born. *VFR French mathematician and educator known for his writings on abstract algebra, functional analysis, topology, and his theory of Lie groups. Dieudonné was one of the two main contributors to the Bourbaki series of texts. He began his mathematical career working on the analysis of polynomials. He worked in a wide variety of mathematical areas including general topology, topological vector spaces, algebraic geometry, invariant theory and the classical groups. *TIS

1971 Sir William Lawrence Bragg (31 Mar 1890; 1 Jul 1971 at age 81) was an Australian-English physicist and X-ray crystallographer who at the early age of 25, shared the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1915 (with his father, Sir William Bragg). Lawrence Bragg formulated the Bragg law of X-ray diffraction, which is basic for the determination of crystal structure: nλ = 2dsinθ which relates the wavelength of x-rays, λ, the angle of incidence on a crystal, θ, and the spacing of crystal planes, d, for x-ray diffraction, where n is an integer (1, 2, 3, etc.). Together, the Braggs worked out the crystal structures of a number of substances. Early in this work, they showed that sodium chloride does not have individual molecules in the solid, but is an array of sodium and chloride ions. *TIS

1983 Richard Buckminster Fuller (July 12, 1895 – July 1, 1983) was a U.S. engineer and architect who developed the geodesic dome, the only large dome that can be set directly on the ground as a complete structure, and the only practical kind of building that has no limiting dimensions (i.e., beyond which the structural strength must be insufficient). Fuller also invented a wide range of other paradigm-shifting machines and structural systems. He was especially interested in high-strength-to-weight designs, with a maximum of utility for minimum of material. His designs and engineering philosophy are part of the foundation of contemporary high-tech design aesthetics. He held over 2000 patents.*TIS

          28 year old Burmese blogger, Nay Phone Latt, sentenced to 20 years in prison   
Two reports about Nay Phone Latt,

Young Burmese Blogger Sentenced to more than 20 Years in Jail
By SAW YAN NAING, The Irrawaddy, Monday, November 10, 2008


A young Burmese blogger who was a major source of information for the outside world on the brutal regime crackdown on the September 2007 uprising was sentenced to 20 years and six months imprisonment on Monday.

Nay Phone Latt, 28, was sentenced by a court in Rangoon’s Insein Prison, according to his mother, Aye Than. He was convicted of contravening Public Offense Act 505 B by posting a cartoon depicting junta leader Snr-Gen Than Shwe on his blog site.

Nay Phone Latt’s colleague Thin July Kyaw was sentenced to two years imprisonment, Aye Than reported.

Another dissident who ridiculed the regime, Saw Wai, was sentenced to two years imprisonment for publishing a poem mocking Than Shwe in the weekly Love Journal, according to Rangoon sources. The first words of each line of the Burmese language poem spelled out the message “Senior General Than Shwe is foolish with power.”

Nay Phone Latt’s blogs during the September 2007 uprising provided invaluable information about events within the locked-down country.

Two Rangoon journalists, Htun Htun Thein and Khin Maung Aye, of the privately-owned weekly News Watch, were arrested on November 5 and are being detained in Insein Prison. The media rights organizations Reporters without Borders and Burma Media Association have demanded their immediate release.

The current regime crackdown is also aimed at silencing legal attempts to ensure fair trials for dissidents now appearing before judges in closed court sessions.

Two weeks ago, three defense lawyers, Nyi Nyi Htwe, Aung Thein and Khin Maung Shein were imprisoned for between four and six months for contempt of court after complaining of unfair treatment.

Four other defense lawyers, Kyaw Hoe, Maung Maung Latt, Myint Thaung and Khin Htay Kyew have been barred from representing their clients since November 5, according to Kyaw Hoe. The lawyers are representing several dissidents, including members of the 88 Generation Students group.

“I asked a prison authority why I was not allowed to appear in court,” said Kyaw Hoe. “He said there was no reason and that the order had come from higher officials.”

Members of the 88 Generation Students group were now appearing daily in court without their defense lawyers, Kyaw Hoe said.

Two lawyers, Myint Thaung and Khin Htay Kyi, who represent the prominent labor activist Su Su Nway, withdrew from court proceedings at the weekend, citing unfair treatment, according to the accused’s sister, Htay Htay Kyi.

Htay Htay Kyi said Su Su Nway would be sentenced on Tuesday. The winner of the 2006 John Humphrey Freedom Award was originally charged with “threatening the stability of the government,” under articles 124, 130 and 505 of the penal code, but new charges have now been added.

In a statement in Washington, the US State Department criticized the imprisonment of the four defense lawyers and urged the Burmese regime to drop all charges and release them.

Deputy Spokesman Robert Wood called on the junta to stop harassing and arresting citizens for peacefully practicing their internationally recognized human rights, to release all political prisoners, and to start a genuine dialogue with democratic forces and ethnic minority groups for democratic reform in Burma.

Court sentenced blogger for over 20 years, poet for two years
by Than Htike Oo, Mizzima News, Monday, 10 November 2008


Chiang Mai – A court in Rangoon's notorious Insein prison on Monday has sentenced a popular Blogger Nay Phone Latt to over 20 years in prison.

Nay Phone Latt, who was arrested on 29 January, on Monday was sentenced by the Insein prison court on three counts including charges under section 505 (b) of the Penal Code - crime against public tranquillity.

The Blogger's mother Aye Aye Than, told Mizzima that her son was sentenced to two years under section 505(b) of the Penal Code, three and half years under sections 32(b)/36 of the Video Law and 15 years under section 33(a)/38 of the Electronic Law.

"We were waiting outside during the court proceedings and after the court session we asked the judge about the quantum of punishment. The judge and prosecutor informed us regarding the judgement," she said.

The 28-years-old, Nay Phone Latt, a famous blogger, is also a youth member of Burma's main opposition party - National League for Democracy. He runs internet cafés in several townships in Rangoon including "The Explorer" in Pabedan Township, and "Heaven" in Thingangyun Township.

His mother Aye Aye Than said that she had no idea why they had sentenced her son to such a long term in prison.

"He is the first ever blogger to be arrested in Burma. I have no idea why they punished my son with such a harsh judgement. Blogging is perhaps a very serious crime in the opinion of the authorities," his mother said.

Meanwhile, Nay Phone Latt's defense counsel, Aung Thein, was also sentenced to four months prison-term in absentia on November 7, for a charge of contempt of the court.

Similarly, poet Saw Wei was also sentenced to two years in prison on Monday with charges of 'inducing crime against public tranquillity'.

He was arrested in February, after his poem entitled 'February 14' was published in the Weekly 'Ah Chit' (love) Journal. In his Burmese poem, putting together of the first words of all the lines spells out 'Power Crazy Snr. Gen.Than Shwe', which provokes the authorities and he was immediately arrested.

"I am worried about his health. I want to arrange proper medical treatment outside the prison for him, where X-ray facility would be available in order to diagnose his back and waist pain. Currently, he cannot get these treatments inside the prison. He has to cover his body with a towel all the time. This morning too at the court, he could not sit for a long time and had to stand up frequently to ease his pain when speaking," Saw Wai's wife told Mizzima.

Soe Maung, the defense counsel of Saw Wai said, despite of the court's verdict, he will continue filing appeals for revision, as he thinks the trial were not free and fair enough.

"We will file an appeal against this judgment at all levels of the courts including an appeal for a revision case. We intend to do as much as the law and judicial proceedings permit us to, within the legal framework, until we reach the last stage. I am preparing for an appeal on my client's instruction," Soe Maung said.

Meanwhile, media watchdogs the Reporters Without Frontiers (RSF) and Burma Media Association (BMA) has slam the junta for its unfair trials on the two writers – Nay Phone Latt and Saw Wai – and the verdict to sentenced them.

The two organisations said, they are appalled by the combined sentence of 20 years and six months in prison that a special court in Insein prison passed on Nay Phone Latt and two years to poet Saw Wai.

"This shocking sentence is meant to terrify those who go online in an attempt to elude the dictatorship's ubiquitous control of news and information, and we call for his immediate release. Saw Wai, for his part, is being made to pay for his impertinence and courage as a committed poet," the two organisations said in a press statement.

The two media watchdogs also call on all bloggers and poets around the world to show their solidarity towards Nay Phone Latt and Saw Wai.

"There is an urgent need now for bloggers all over the world to demonstrate their solidarity with Nay Phone Latt by posing his photo on their blogs and by writing to Burmese embassies worldwide to request his release. Similarly, we call on poets to defend their fellow-poet, Saw Wai, who has been jailed just because of one poem," said the two organisations.

          Found my ring   
My wedding ring has been missing since Monday night. I have felt naked without it. I have a habit of touching my pinky finger to my ring to make sure it's there. I have still been doing it this week without the ring. Ugh.

The girls have been very into wedding rings lately (they say "you are mawwied to Mommy"). K asked to hold it Monday night and I said yes. 45 minutes later I remembered that I had given it to her. She had been in the family room and was, until Thursday, still in her cast. And she didn't have her boot/shoe thing over the cast, so I knew she hadn't left the room. She won't walk on the hardwoods in her cast without her boot on. So I thought it was isolated to that room.

I looked through everything Monday night. No luck. Tuesday night I came home and moved everything from the family room into the kitchen and painstakingly re-assembled the room, going through everything, dusting, vacuuming, going through the contents of the vacuum, everything. No luck.

Wednesday night I looked again, but half-heartedly. It seemed so frustrating to look with no success. Last night I spent two hours going through every nook and cranny of the couch, the big chair and the leather chair. Nothing.

I became convinced that K had put it into her cast - it just seemed like the only place left. She would say at times that she had, then later would say she hadn't. We waited with anticipation for her Thursday doctor's appointment for an x-ray and cast removal. The leg had healed, but the ring wasn't there.

Tonight I was putting the girls to bed and came out of their bathroom. There was a small basket on the floor outside the study with a bunch of crafts in it. I had seen it last night and thought to look in it, but glanced and realized there was no way my ring was in there because it hadn't been in the family room earlier. So I passed it by and spent two hours on the family room instead.

Tonight on the way to the girls' bedroom I saw it again and picked it up to put it on the banister to remind myself to look later. Then I noticed two socks in there and was in the process of gathering socks for the girls to put on for bed. I grabbed them and one was heavy. I got excited because I saw it had something solid in in. I squeezed the sock and got more excited and was thrilled to dump the sock out and find my ring. What a joy! The girls rejoiced with me too.

My guess is that Kelly had been cleaning and brought that little basket upstairs sometime after K had set the ring in the sock in the basket, all within 45 minutes of me giving it to her and realizing it wasn't in plain view.

This sounds silly, but I have felt naked without that ring. It is such a symbol of my love for and commitment to Kelly. It's present on my hand every time I use my hands to talk at work, every time I walk through the store, every time I brush my teeth and go to bed at night. For almost nine years it has been as much a part of my body as my finger... I rarely take it off.

I felt this week like the woman who lost the gold coin who proceeds to "light a lamp, sweep the house and search carefully until she finds it[?] 9And when she finds it, she calls her friends and neighbors together and says, 'Rejoice with me; I have found my lost coin.'"

So friends, rejoice with me! Thank you Jesus for helping me to find this ring that I love and which always brings back to me the fond memories I have of that hot day in July when I stood before my friends and family and married my sweetheart.

          Everything You Will Need To Know About Heel Soreness   
Overview

Feet Pain

Every mile you walk puts tons of stress on each foot. Your feet can handle a heavy load, but too much stress pushes them over their limits. When you pound your feet on hard surfaces playing sports or wear shoes that irritate sensitive tissues, you may develop heel pain, the most common problem affecting the foot and ankle. A sore heel will usually get better on its own without surgery if you give it enough rest. However, many people ignore the early signs of heel pain and keep on doing the activities that caused it. When you continue to walk on a sore heel, it will only get worse and could become a chronic condition leading to more problems.

Causes

While heel pain has many causes, it is usually the result of poor biomechanics (abnormalities in the way we walk). This can place too much stress on the heel bone and the soft tissues attached to it. The stress may result from injury, or a bruise incurred while walking, running or jumping on hard surfaces: wearing poorly constructed footwear or being significantly over weight. Systemic diseases such as arthritis can also contribute to heel pain.

Symptoms

Common symptoms, heel Spurs: the pain is usually worst on standing, particularly first thing in the morning when you get up. It is relatively common, though usually occurring in the over forty's age group. There are no visible features on the heel but a deep localised painful spot can be found in or around the middle of the sole of the heel. Although it is often associated with a spur of bone sticking out of the heel bone (heel spur syndrome), approximately ten per cent of the population have heel spurs without any pain. Heel Bursitis, pain can be felt at the back of the heel when the ankle joint is moved and there may be a swelling on both sides of the Achilles tendon. Or you may feel pain deep inside the heel when it makes contact with the ground. Heel Bumps, recognised as firm bumps on the back of the heel , they are often rubbed by shoes causing pain.

Diagnosis

The diagnosis of plantar fasciitis is generally made during the history and physical examination. There are several conditions that can cause heel pain, and plantar fasciitis must be distinguished from these conditions. Pain can be referred to the heel and foot from other areas of the body such as the low back, hip, knee, and/or ankle. Special tests to challenge these areas are performed to help confirm the problem is truly coming from the plantar fascia. An X-ray may be ordered to rule out a stress fracture of the heel bone and to see if a bone spur is present that is large enough to cause problems. Other helpful imaging studies include bone scans, MRI, and ultrasound. Ultrasonographic exam may be favored as it is quick, less expensive, and does not expose you to radiation. Laboratory investigation may be necessary in some cases to rule out a systemic illness causing the heel pain, such as rheumatoid arthritis, Reiter's syndrome, or ankylosing spondylitis. These are diseases that affect the entire body but may show up at first as pain in the heel.

Non Surgical Treatment

Orthotics, by treating the cause of the problem, lead to the cure bette than 90% of the time. A small number of patients have waited so long that the plantar fascia has become thickened and filled with scar tissue and are not helped by ?conventional? means. Those are the patients that have, traditionally, required surgical treatment in which the plantar fascia is cut off the heel bone. Luckily, most surgery has been replaced by a relatively new mode of treatment, ESWT or Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy. ESWT involves the application of multiple shockwaves to the diseased tendon or ligament and has an approximately 85 to 90% success rate. Keep in mind we are talking about this success rate in patients who are ?tough cases,? that is, already had the conventional treatment. The ESWT machines look like miniature renal lithtripsors (kidney stone crushers). There are virtually no side effects to ESWT other than the price as only about 30% of insurance companies are paying for it. They realize that it is less costly and safer than surgery but also know that many more people who would avoid surgery would have no problem getting ESWT so the volume of services would go up. You don?t have to live with painful heels.

Surgical Treatment

When a diagnosis of plantar fasciitis is made early, most patients respond to conservative treatment and don?t require surgical intervention. Often, when there is a secondary diagnosis contributing to your pain, such as an entrapped nerve, and you are non-responsive to conservative care, surgery may be considered. Dr. Talarico will discuss all options and which approach would be the most beneficial for your condition.

Prevention

Feet Pain

You can reduce the risk of heel pain in many ways, including. Wear shoes that fit you properly with a firm fastening, such as laces. Choose shoes with shock-absorbent soles and supportive heels. Repair or throw out any shoes that have worn heels. Always warm up and cool down when exercising or playing sport, include plenty of slow, sustained stretches. If necessary, your podiatrist will show you how to tape or strap your feet to help support the muscles and ligaments. Shoe inserts (orthoses) professionally fitted by your podiatrist can help support your feet in the long term.

          Cubs' Bryant Could be Sidelined Until Next Week   
Kris Bryant was out of the Chicago Cubs' starting lineup for a series finale at Washington, a day after spraining his right ankle, and could be sidelined until next week.

The reigning NL MVP turned his ankle on third base while catching a foul popup in the sixth inning Wednesday.

"It feels a ton better today," Bryant said Thursday. "I'm moving around pretty good. I don't think it will be too long."

X-rays Wednesday were negative. After leaving the field Bryant said he and the training staff "did a bunch of stuff that didn't feel good, but I guess it really made feel better today."

He was replaced at third base Thursday by Jeimer Candelario.

"Just got to give us a couple of days to figure it out at that point," Cubs manager Joe Maddon said.

Maddon acknowledged he could hold Bryant out until Chicago hosts Tampa Bay on Tuesday.

"I would think that's what it's going to be. When you sprain your ankle, it just doesn't get better overnight," Maddon said.

The injury occurred in part because the pop drifted.

"The ball started out pretty far over from the bag so I thought I was pretty far away from it," Bryant said. "One step. I can't believe it happened."

Bryant is batting .264 with 16 home runs and 32 RBIs.

"Maybe soften the bags a little bit, like old school. Maybe just throw a hat down," he joked.

          UPDATE: Several Injured, Gunman Dead in NYC Hospital Shooting   

A gunman opened fire inside a New York City hospital on Friday in a burst of violence that injured several people and left the suspect dead, police said, as local media reported at least three doctors were among the wounded.

Few details about the shooting at Bronx-Lebanon Hospital were immediately available from official sources.

The assailant was armed with what appeared to be an M16 assault rifle, state Assemblyman Michael Blake, whose district includes the hospital and was informed by state police, told local television station NY1.

The New York Times, citing information furnished by an unnamed city Fire Department official, reported that three physicians had been shot. Their conditions were unknown.

As least one of the wounded doctors was treated by people inside the hospital who fashioned a tourniquet from an emergency fire hose, according to the official, the Times said.

As many as five or six people may have been wounded, the Times said, citing a law enforcement official who spoke on condition of anonymity. It took police some time to secure the area, preventing emergency medical workers from immediately entering, the Times said.

CBS News reported that a gunman, believed to be a former hospital employee, was armed with a rifle and had barricaded himself inside the building.

New York Police Department spokesman Peter Donald posted a message a short time later on Twitter, saying, "One shooter is deceased at the hospital." The NYPD's official Twitter feed then posted an update saying, "The shooter is deceased. Several others are injured regarding the shooting at Bronx Lebanon Hospital."

On Twitter, the New York Police Department told people to avoid the area around the hospital in the borough of the Bronx at 1650 Grand Concourse.

Police conducted a room-by-room search, telling civilians to turn off the lights and remain in place, according to an account posted on Twitter by Felix Puno, who identified himself as patient in the radiology department on the fourth floor of the hospital.

"Building is in complete shut down, I was in the middle of getting an x-ray when security alerted us to the active shooter situation," Puno tweeted.

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio was briefed on the shooting and was on his way to the scene, the mayor's Twitter account said.

Bronx Lebanon hospital, about one mile (1.6 km) north of Yankee Stadium, describes itself as the largest voluntary, non-profit health care system serving the South and Central Bronx, as well as among the largest providers of outpatient services in New York City.

          Nationals speedster Trea Turner fractures wrist on hit by pitch   
The Nationals have lost Trea Turner indefinitely due to a broken wrist suffered Thursday. In the bottom of the seventh inning of Washington’s 5-4 loss to the Cubs, Turner was hit in the right wrist by a 96 mph fastball from Chicago reliever Pedro Strop. Turner glanced briefly at Strop, then walked slowly to first base. The 24-year old shortstop remained in the game and caught a pop-up in the top of the eighth inning, but was replaced in the top of the ninth by reserve infielder Wilmer Difo. “I didn’t know,” Turner said. “I had tape on my wrist, so initially it didn’t feel that bad. But I went out there and tried throwing. It hurt to lob the ball, but it felt fine when I threw it as hard as I could or basically full speed. “So I stayed in there a little bit, and then after a little while it started stiffening up on me so I figured I’d get out of there. In a close game, didn’t want to make a double-cut play or whatever it might be. I figured (Stephen) Drew might have a better shot or Difo. They’d have a better shot at playing some defense.” X-rays confirmed the break. The Nationals did not give a timetable for Turner’s return to the team.

Overview

Pain In The Heel

More than 20 percent of patients visit foot specialists because of heel pain, and approximately one-third of all patients I see come because of this problem. Over 50 percent of Americans will experience heel pain during their lifetime. The most common form of heel pain is known as plantar fasciitis or "heel spur syndrome." The plantar fascia is a thick ligament on the bottom of your foot spanning from your heel to the base of your toes. It supports the arch and several muscles under the bones that support the foot. Overtime, most people will develop some degree of calcification within these muscles on the bottom of their heel called a "spur."

Causes

There are two different categories of heel pain. The first is caused by over-use repetitive stress which refers to a soreness resulting from too much impact on a specific area of the foot. This condition, often referred to as "heel pain syndrome," can be caused by shoes with heels that are too low, a thinned out fat pad in the heel area, or from a sudden increase in activity. Plantar fasciitis, a very common diagnosis of heel pain, is usually caused from a biomechancial problem, such as over-pronation (flat feet). The plantar fascia is a broad band of fibrous tissue that runs along the bottom surface of the foot, from the heel through the midfoot and into the forefoot. Over-pronation can cause the plantar fascia to be excessively stretched and inflamed, resulting in pain in the heel and arch areas of the foot. Often the pain will be most intense first thing in the morning or after a prolonged period of rest. The pain will gradually subside as the day progresses.

Symptoms

The symptoms of plantar fasciitis are classically pain of a sharp nature which is worse standing first thing in the morning. After a short period of walking the pain usually reduces or disappears, only to return again later in the day. Aggravating times are often after increased activity and rising from sitting. If these are the sort of symptoms you are experiencing then the Heel-Fix Kit ? will be just the treatment your heel is crying out for. Some heel pain is more noticeable at night and at rest. Because plantar fasciitis is a mechanical pathology it is unlikely that this sort of heel pain is caused by plantar fasciitis. The most common reason for night heel pain is pressure on your Sciatic nerve causing referred pain in the heel. Back pain is often present as well, but you can get the heel pain with little or no back pain that is caused by nerve irritation in the leg or back. If you get pain in your heels mainly or worse at night please see a clinician as soon as you can to confirm the diagnosis.

Diagnosis

Your GP or podiatrist (a healthcare professional who specialises in foot care) may be able to diagnose the cause of your heel pain by asking about your symptoms and examining your heel and foot. You will usually only need further tests if you have additional symptoms that suggest the cause of your heel pain is not inflammation, such as numbness or a tingling sensation in your foot - this could be a sign of nerve damage in your feet and legs (peripheral neuropathy), your foot feels hot and you have a high temperature (fever) of 38C (100.4F) or above - these could be signs of a bone infection, you have stiffness and swelling in your heel - this could be a sign of arthritis. Possible further tests may include, blood tests, X-rays - where small doses of radiation are used to detect problems with your bones and tissues, a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan or ultrasound scan, which are more detailed scans.

Non Surgical Treatment

Early treatment might involve exercise and shoe recommendations, taping or strapping and anti-inflammatory medication (such as aspirin). Taping or strapping supports the foot, placing stressed muscles in a restful state and preventing stretching of the plantar fascia. Other physical therapies may also be used, including ice packs and ultra-sounds. These treatments will effectively treat the majority of heel and arch pain without the need for surgery.

Surgical Treatment

With the advancements in technology and treatments, if you do need to have surgery for the heel, it is very minimal incision that?s done. And the nice thing is your recovery period is short and you should be able to bear weight right after the surgery. This means you can get back to your weekly routine in just a few weeks. Recovery is a lot different than it used to be and a lot of it is because of doing a minimal incision and decreasing trauma to soft tissues, as well as even the bone. So if you need surgery, then your recovery period is pretty quick.

Prevention

Painful Heel

You can try to avoid the things that cause heel pain to start avoid becoming overweight, where your job allows, minimise the shock to your feet from constant pounding on hard surfaces, reduce the shocks on your heel by choosing footwear with some padding or shock-absorbing material in the heel, if you have high-arched feet or flat feet a moulded insole in your shoe may reduce the stresses on your feet, if you have an injury to your ankle or foot, make sure you exercise afterwards to get back as much movement as possible to reduce the stresses on your foot and your heel in particular, If you start to get heel pain, doing the above things may enable the natural healing process to get underway and the pain to improve.

          Hear It from a Girl Scout: I Would Rather Be the Researcher Than the Enthusiast   
Since 2013, in collaboration with Arconic Foundation, Girl Scouts of the USA has awarded ten Girl Scouts the Chuck McLane Scholarship, which is available to Gold Award recipients who complete projects related to science, technology, engineering, or math (STEM). Earlier this month, we announced that Ashley Martin of Girl Scouts of North-Central Alabama was a recipient of the Chuck McLane Scholarship for 2017. She will attend the University of Georgia as a Bernard Ramsey Scholar majoring in genetics. Check out her story and what she has to say about her experience at Girl Scouts.

Tell us about your STEM-related Gold Award project and your experience at Girl Scouts.

My project is a curriculum that gives a mostly unbiased overview of genetic engineering and genetically modified foods and encourages people to develop their own opinions. The curriculum is a three-day unit study, including materials to cover the scientific, economic, social, and environmental impacts of GMO crops. It also provides an overview of basic genetics to facilitate understanding of more advanced material. The target audience is a high school–level biology class, advanced middle school students, and homeschoolers. Before making the materials available freely on the Internet, I conducted a small pilot class of 14 people and administered pre- and post-course quizzes to measure the program’s impact. The pilot class went well, with a 43 percent increase between an initial background quiz and the final quiz. This curriculum is available at www.BetterLesson.com and www.TeachersPayTeachers.com.

For me, this was a perfect capstone to an incredible experience in Girl Scouts. I started ten years ago, joining a Brownie troop in Pittsburgh before moving to my new home in Huntsville, Alabama. Girl Scouts has given me opportunities to volunteer and try things I would never be able to do on my own, like spending the night in a science museum. My favorite part was making signs and selling cookies every year. As I got older, I started taking on more of a leadership and mentor role, helping my little sister’s troop whenever I could. Being a Girl Scout taught me a lot about the type of person I want to be.


What advice would you give to other girls who are in the process of earning their Gold Award?

Don’t give up! I will confess that at various times my Gold Award project felt overwhelming or impossible. But rather than focus on the whole thing, I learned to break it up into smaller pieces, and then lay out a plan for completing each piece. After that, it was much easier to just focus on and follow the plan. I didn’t need to have a solution for everything at the same time; I just had to tackle the next step in front of me.


How do you take the lead?

The Girl Scouts, my Journeys, and the Gold Award have been great opportunities to take on a leadership role in the more traditional sense. While those were amazing experiences that taught me a lot about myself and the type of person I want to be, I also think leadership doesn’t just happen in those big moments. I also work hard to lead by example in my daily life, often in simple ways. I treat others with respect and compassion. I try to be a good listener, and a good friend, for everyone I know. When someone needs help, I’m the first to jump in and the last to leave. I think this type of leadership on a small scale is just as important as the more traditional examples.


Was there a particular event or moment in your childhood that sparked your interest in STEM?

Ever since I read about an experiment where scientists created cats that glow in the dark, I have been fascinated by biology research. I loved to learn about advancements in genetic engineering and how it has the potential to solve problems affecting both food and medicine. In ninth grade, I realized that I would rather be the researcher making these advancements than the enthusiast reading about them. Ever since then, it has been my goal to be a scientist.


What does the Chuck McLane Scholarship mean to you?

I was incredibly honored to learn I had won the scholarship. Before I applied, I looked over the online descriptions of the previous winners and was blown away by their passion for STEM and the scope of their Gold Award projects. To be considered an equal to these amazing and talented women is humbling. I only hope that I can inspire someone the way that they inspired me!


Where are you going to college, and what STEM studies are you interested in focusing on?

I will be attending the University of Georgia in the fall, majoring in genetics. I have already completed a lot of the freshman biology and chemistry courses through dual enrollment in high school, so I’m excited to jump right in to higher level biology and genetics classes. Ideally, I also want to start conducting research as a freshman, so that I can augment classroom learning with practical experience in a working laboratory setting. I hope to minor in computer science or bioinformatics, as genetics serves as an incredibly complex “big data” problem that will require novel computational analysis methodologies. This will give me the most solid foundation possible for future education and careers.

In the long term, I intend to earn my PhD in genetics and become a researcher in academia or private industry. I would love to work at a cutting-edge biotechnology start-up that uses genetic engineering to improve medicine, agriculture, or pharmaceuticals.


Do you have any female heroes in STEM?

I have always admired the work and life of Marie Curie. She did groundbreaking work in chemistry and physics related to radioactivity during an age when higher education for women was very rare. That work led to a Nobel Prize (twice!) and the discovery of two atomic elements. She then took that science and developed mobile X-ray units used to treat soldiers on the front in World War I. That, to me, is the ultimate goal for any scientist: to not only advance human understanding, but also have a positive impact on society.


What advice would you give to other girls who want to pursue STEM careers?


Just do it! I’m lucky to have had a lot of supportive people in my life who believed in me and taught me I could do anything I put my mind to. But even if you don’t have people in your corner, believe in yourself. I always struggled with math, but made it through college-level Calculus I and II in high school with a lot of blood, sweat, and tears. It was hard work, but incredibly rewarding once I realized I really could do it. Now I know the sky is the limit.

          Vitamin D Levels in Malnourished Children under 5 Years in a Tertiary Care Center at Muhimbili National Hospital, Dar es Salaam, Tanzania—A Cross-sectional Study   
Abstract
Objective: To evaluate vitamin D levels/deficiency among malnourished children <5 years admitted at a tertiary care center, the Muhimbili National Hospital, Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. Children with malnutrition may have co-existing vitamin D deficiency (VDD), which may be severe.Methods: Serum vitamin D and alkaline phosphatase were evaluated, and X-ray of the wrist was carried out on 134 children.Results: VDD was found in 41 of 134 children (30.6%). The mean vitamin D level was 74.8 nmol/l. The mean alkaline phosphatase level was 176.6 U/l. Sixty-four (48%) children were found to have severe stunting, of whom 20 (31.2%) were vitamin D deficient. Marasmic children had higher odds of VDD compared with other forms of malnutrition.Conclusion: The high prevalence of VDD in malnourished children underlines the need for active surveillance and aggressive management.

          Witnesses describe shooting at New York's Bronx Lebanon Hospital (1 reply)   
Last Updated Jun 30, 2017 5:51 PM EDT

NEW YORK -- At least one person was killed and six others wounded after a gunman opened fire inside the Bronx-Lebanon Hospital Center on Friday afternoon, officials said.

Officials said the shooter was Dr. Henry Bello, a former employee at Bronx Lebanon Hospital. Bello was found dead at the scene.

As details emerged following the shooting hospital personnel and patients shared harrowing details of the shooting in the Bronx's Mount Hope neighborhood.

Gonzalo Carazo, who works at the the hospital, told CBS New York he smelled smoke and was told the hospital was on lockdown. He witnessed a doctor with a gunshot wound to the hand. "I didn't hear any gunshots, all I hear was the doctor saying 'Help, help," he said.

Carazo said he barricaded himself in a room for 15 minutes before police escorted him and others out of the building. "It was hot, and I was nervous," he said. "I saw blood on the stairs."

Phillip Zephamiah, who works in housekeeping at the hospital, said he was inside an operating room when emergency alarms went off. "Everybody were running here and running there for cover, trying to get in the room, lock themselves up," he told CBS New York.

A woman answering phones inside the hospital's pediatric unit told The New York Times she and others were still unable to evacuate the hospital. "We are just keeping safe. We are OK," she said. "All of us have to feel tense because of the situation."

Robert Maldonado, an EMT, said he was at the hospital to transport a patient when the shooting occurred. Maldonado told CBS New York he witnessed a victim who suffered a gunshot wound on the 9th floor of the building.

He and his partner applied pressure to the wound. Because the elevators weren't working, they carried the victim down nine flights of stairs to the trauma room on the first floor.

One of the hospital's patients told CBS New York that he was in his room when alarms went off throughout the building. "I was in my room looking at the TV and everybody said, 'Code red, Shut your doors. Don't come out your room.' We didn't know what was going on and we got scared."

Another patient, Felix Pun told the New York Daily News he was in the middle of getting an X-ray when security alerted him to the active shooter situation. "Police are here doing a floor-by-floor sweep," he said.

Another man said it was "scary seeing blood on the doctors hand and I'm just glad I got out safely. I hope everyone else gets out safely too."

Garry Trimble said his fianceé was still barricaded inside the hospital. "She was nervous, and I ran out here," he told CBS New York. "She's still scared. She didn't tell me nothing because I told her to get off the phone because I don't want her to talk too much, because they listen, and I don't want [the shooter] to break in the door."

"It's really sad that we have to go through this throughout our life, but we got to be strong. We got to keep on going."

          Surface modification of epoxy using an atmospheric pressure dielectric barrier discharge to accelerate surface charge dissipation   
In this paper, an atmospheric-pressure dielectric barrier discharge is used to modify the surface of the epoxy material and enhance the dissipation of surface charge to reduce the accumulation of surface charge. In the experiments, atmospheric-pressure air dielectric barrier discharge is driven by a microsecond pulse generator. Surface properties of epoxy before and after the plasma treatment are characterized by water contact angle, surface potential, and surface/volume conductivity measurements. Atomic force microscope and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy are used to investigate the changes of the morphology and the chemical composition of the epoxy surface. Experimental results indicate that the surface of epoxy is etched by the plasma and the increase of the surface roughness enhances the surface insulation ability. The O radicals in plasma and the carbonyl groups formed on the surface make the surface charge trap shallower, change the epoxy surface composition then increase the surface conductivity and accelerate surface charge dissipation. When the epoxy is treated for an appropriate time, the epoxy surface insulation performance will be enhanced obviously and the surface charge dissipation will be accelerated.
          Studies on high temperature vulcanized silicone rubber insulators under arid climatic aging   
In recent times, high temperature vulcanized (HTV) silicone rubber (SIR) insulators featuring several advantages, have gained importance over conventional ceramic and glass insulators. However, environmental stresses and electrical discharge activities degrade their superior performance therefore long term reliability of polymeric insulators is still under investigation. In the present work, arid climate aging experiments are carried out on SIR and effects of dry thermal exposure on composite insulators are investigated. Hydrophobicity recovery phenomenon for contaminated polymeric insulator sheds is reported with elevated temperature and a method proposed for achieving uniformity in pollution layer is also highlighted. Furthermore, Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy, X-Ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS), Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), Thermo-Gravimetric Analysis (TGA), Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) techniques are utilized to assess and analyze the changes in the material properties. The consequence of arid heating on tensile strength of SIR is evaluated. Also the dry flashover studies are carried out to discern the concerns related to the effects on thermally aged SIR insulators due to sudden overvoltages occurring in transmission lines.
          Improved DC performance of crosslinked polyethylene insulation depending on a higher purity   
Super-clean crosslinked polyethylene (XLPE) has been widely used in DC power cables. In order to understand the nature of purity dependence of electrical insulation performance, two kinds of insulating XLPE materials used in AC and DC high voltage cables, whose abbreviation were AC-XLPE and DC-XLPE respectively, were investigated in this paper. The results showed that DC-XLPE had a relative higher DC electrical conductivity and relative lower thermal activation energy than AC-XLPE, which was governed by the trap characteristics. The thermal activation energies could match the energy depths of the bulk deep traps calculated by thermal stimulated current. Both positive and negative charges can be found in AC-XLPE while there were only positive charges in DC-XLPE. Meanwhile, DC-XLPE showed higher electric breakdown strength than AC-XLPE. It was proposed that the improved DC insulation performance of DC-XLPE was closely related to its higher purity. The Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy results showed AC-XLPE contained more polar groups such as carbonyl groups than DC-XPLE, which were caused by antioxidants. The oxidative induction times verified a higher content of antioxidant in AC-XLPE. X-ray diffraction showed little difference of crystallinity between two samples, but DC-XLPE exhibited a larger spherulite size. As a result, it is suggested that more efforts should be made to achieve higher purity of XLPE in HVDC insulation.
          Polypropylene-nanoclay composites under electron irradiation in SEM: Structure, charge trapping and electron emission properties   
In this work, polypropylene (PP) and its polymer nanocomposites (PNCs) films containing very low contents (2–6 wt %) of Cloisite 20A natural montmorillonite clay platelets were investigated. In a first, they were characterized by means of several analytical techniques such as X-ray Diffraction (XRD), Fourier Transform Infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) and UV-visible spectroscopy. Secondly, the nanocomposites are submitted to an electron beam in a Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) and the induced currents are measured using a time-resolved current method. These currents are used to determine the trapped charge and the electron emission yield. The aim is to contribute to the understanding of the effect of different concentrations of nanoclay platelets on the studied properties by correlating the results obtained by both techniques. The analytical characterization showed that upon the increase of nanoclays concentration an intercalated structure and an increase of crystallinity are induced. On the other hand, the optical band gap energy is modified because the increasing of the density of localized states in the forbidden energy band. As regards the measurement of the trapped charge, it was found, surprisingly, that not only the leakage current increases as a function of clay loading level but also the trapped charge (or the surface potential). This could be related to the increase of conductivity in one hand and to proliferation of interfaces between nanoparticles and neighboring materials on the other hand.

          All The Things You Want To Know About Heel Pain   
http://lianestorts.soup.io Overview

Painful Heel

Plantar fasciitis is a painful condition affecting the bottom of the foot. It is a common cause of heel pain and is sometimes called a heel spur. Plantar fasciitis is the correct term to use when there is active inflammation. Plantar fasciosis is more accurate when there is no inflammation but chronic degeneration instead. Acute plantar fasciitis is defined as inflammation of the origin of the plantar fascia and fascial structures around the area. Plantar fasciitis or fasciosis is usually just on one side. In about 30 per cent of all cases, both feet are affected. This guide will help you understand how plantar fasciitis develops, how the condition causes problems, what can be done for your pain.

Causes

Near the inflamed plantar fascia attachment, but not in it, some extra bone may form, producing a small "spur". In fact, it is a shelf of bone, not a sharp spur. These "heel spurs" are commoner in people with plantar fascitis, but they can be found in people with no heel pain. The heel spur is caused by the same process as the heel pain, but the spur is not itself the cause of the pain.

Symptoms

Symptoms include a dull ache which is felt most of the time with episodes of a sharp pain in the centre of the heel or on the inside margin of the heel. Often the pain is worse on first rising in the morning and after rest and is aggravated by prolonged weight bearing & thin soled shoes.

Diagnosis

Your GP or podiatrist (a healthcare professional who specialises in foot care) may be able to diagnose the cause of your heel pain by asking about your symptoms and examining your heel and foot. You will usually only need further tests if you have additional symptoms that suggest the cause of your heel pain is not inflammation, such as numbness or a tingling sensation in your foot - this could be a sign of nerve damage in your feet and legs (peripheral neuropathy), your foot feels hot and you have a high temperature (fever) of 38C (100.4F) or above - these could be signs of a bone infection, you have stiffness and swelling in your heel - this could be a sign of arthritis. Possible further tests may include, blood tests, X-rays - where small doses of radiation are used to detect problems with your bones and tissues, a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan or ultrasound scan, which are more detailed scans.

Non Surgical Treatment

Using our state-of-the-art equipment, Dr. Weinert is able to provide a full work up for the heel, including gait analysis. Digital imagining gives him and the patient a full view of the foot and injury to help formulate the best treatment plan possible. There are numerous treatment options available to help with heel pain and plantar fasciitis. Anti-inflammatory medications. Digital custom orthotics. Physical therapy. Diagnostic and ultrasonic guided injection therapy. No one should ever resign to living with foot pain.

Surgical Treatment

Only a relatively few cases of heel pain require surgery. If required, surgery is usually for the removal of a spur, but also may involve release of the plantar fascia, removal of a bursa, or a removal of a neuroma or other soft-tissue growth.

Prevention

Heel Pain

Wearing real good, supportive shoes are a great way to avoid heel pain. Usually, New Balance is a good shoe to wear, just for everyday shoe gear. By wearing proper footwear and performing thorough stretches, athletes can help prevent frequent heel pain. If you are starting to get a little discomfort or pain in the feet or heel, know that pain is not normal. So if you are having pain, you should be proactive and visit our office. If you let heel pain get out of control you could run into several other problems. It is always suggested to visit a podiatrist whenever you are experiencing pain.
          Never fly Philippine Airlines   
It took some doing, but Philippine Airlines have supplanted United in the "I will never fly them again unless there is no other choice" stakes.

On our most recent trip, three out of four legs of the journey were just too unpleasant, and while the last helped to smooth over the annoyance, the sum total was best summed up by Catriona who said "Dad, next time we fly, can we *not* go with the cheap airline?"

Picture this: You get onto a plane, about to take a 10 hour flight, expecting to see those in-seat monitors.  What you get is a poorly focussed overhead screen.  And a bunch of children looking really disappointed already.

The announcement comes over to "please close your windows - if you want to read, turn on your overhead lights".  You push the button.  Nothing happens.  You sit in the dark with your Kindle wondering how you're going to kill the next 10 hours.

You open the window and let the light in. A flight attendant comes and asks you to close it.  You explain that the light doesn't work.  She goes away.

The purser comes and asks you to close it.  You explain that the light doesn't work.  He shrugs.  You show him that in fact the light control actually comes out of the seat showing exposed wiring.  He laughs and goes away.  You hope that the wiring in the cockpit is in better condition.

Repeat for two more flight attendants.

For an hour you try to watch the blotchy screen showing some movie.  The movie stops.  And restarts from the beginning.  This happens several times during the flight.  They do show snippets of an insane American game show where people get hurt trying to climb over/under/through a watery obstacle course.

After 10 hours, you get off in Manila.  You are escorted up to the departures lounge, and go through security having your bags and shoes X-rayed, and being patted down.  Loo break, have a tiny ice-cream, then go to the gate (approximately 20m away from where you were last scanned) where you have to go through security again, having your bags X-rayed and being patted down.  Presumably this is because you might have visited the gun dealer in the departure lounge.  At least, you can keep your shoes on this time.

So, now you are in the "secure area" - that is, a part of the same floor that's cordoned off with those ribbons you see in bank queues. Once inside the "secure area", you realise that there are no seats left so you sit on the marble floor, only to realise that the airport roof is leaking and the floor is wet.  But it's ok, that's to make sure you don't dehydrate -- it must be, after all, it's the only source of water you have access to until your flight.  Unless you want to go through security again.  Remember, you can't bring more than 100ml into the "secure area" so don't think about going out and buying drinks for the kids.

Still, at least this next Manila to Los Angeles flight will have personal screens, won't it?  No, you probably only wanted to just sleep anyway.  This time we're split across three rows, with me behind the three kids and Pauline somewhere up frontish.  I get to share the row with a couple who were, well, large.  For the entire trip, the voice in my head was that of the male hippo in Madagascar 2 saying "Girl, you're large. You're chunky!"

(realise that I've been switching from second person to first person - give up dreams of being a novelist)

But you're in LA now - have a holiday, and try not to think about the flight home.  If you have to think about Manila, think about how cheap the ice-creams were.

Too soon it's over and you are winging back from Washington to LAX arriving at about 2:30pm and having to wait till 10:30pm, thinking "I'll check the suitcases and then grab a bus somewhere outside the airport".  Bzzzt, sorry, Philippine Airlines don't begin checking in until 6:45pm.  Ok, this one isn't completely their fault but if the whole trip had been with them, I'd have been able to check the bags in in Washington.

Ok, we're back - side trip was acceptable though it was a little tricky dragging 3 suitcases and 5 people each with backpacks onto a peak-hour city bus.  Again, can't blame the airline for that.

At about 10:45, learn that "because the plane is lighter than we thought, we don't want to stop in Guam to refuel".  "Hooray" shouts the crowd.  "... so, we'll be delaying the flight until 1:30am so that when we get to Manila Airport it will actually be open."   "Boo!" shouts the crowd.  "... so, here is a $12 voucher that you can use at any of two eateries here in no-mans-land behind security -- no, they won't work anywhere else".

(Hmmm, and yet the airports Facebook page says "always open" - sigh)

Get on the plane and discover that the little man at checkin who told us that the last side-row of seats reclines, was lying.  They don't.  They would block the exit door. He had deliberately moved us there to keep us altogether and we explicitly said that we would only go there if they reclined.  So he said "sure they do".  First rule of airlines - get the passenger to be someone else's problem, preferably at another airport.

We complain to the purser and get the girls moved forward about 40 rows, leaving us boys at the back.  Next to a walrus.  I don't know what else to say, just try to imagine someone who can snore loud enough to be heard over an airplane engine.  Thomas can't take it and moves forward with the girls, leaving Jonathan and I with more room.  And a noisy walrus who, to be fair, eventually shut the hell up.  But that just made it easier to hear the scary rattling noises from above.

Try to lift the arm rest to use that extra space?  Aha, no, they have that covered too, they only raise about 2/3 of the way making it impossible to spread out.

Well, at least this time the plane has those little screens.  Look, Movies and TV. Hmmm, movies aren't anything special, what do they have on the TV - *one* program.  One! And for irony, it's "a documentary on aviation technology".  After the flight, you learn that in fact the people over on the right hand side of the plane had dozens of TV shows to watch.  Or perhaps it was "front" vs "back".

Watch a couple of movies. This part was ok.  But it's what we were expecting on every leg.

When the flight is just about over, we discover that in fact when they moved the girls, there were three empty seats behind them - they could have moved us all, they just didn't think we'd want to.

Back at Manila.  Back to double-goes on the security ride.  At least, this time it wasn't raining.

Notice that the security area has been set up so that the guy looking at the X-ray screen has to shade it with his hand the entire day, because they placed the screen such that the sun shines directly on it through wall-to-ceiling windows - what a shame they couldn't have anticipated, while designing the airport, that the sun actually shines.  This just reinforces the notion that all of this security crap is based on the notion that the guy before you was incompetent.  Not to mention the tautological sign that justifies it by saying "Philippine law requires that all bags be inspected when passing through inspection points".  So, if they hadn't put an inspection point in, there would have been no need for an inspection point. "It's a bypass, ya gotta build bypasses".

One last plane.  One last chance for reasonable entertainment.  Why does the screen say TV but doesn't mention Movies?  And why is there so much "Glee" in the TV section?  After four reboots (did you know those things run Linux? We do now), the Movies actually show up.  So, the final leg of the trip is tolerable.  Not surprisingly, it was the shortest of the bunch at less than eight hours (Manila to Sydney is faster because it's downhill all the way).

Oh, by the way, you know how nice a warm pork bun can be?  Not surprisingly, the "warm" isn't optional - a cold pork bun snack really doesn't do anything for me, but they served it anyway.

All told, there weren't any catastrophes, no lost bags, no falling out of the sky. Just a series of unpleasant experiences which left you with the feeling that "this is an airline that is just a bit manky".

Your mileage may vary.  But I've flown Singapore Airlines, I've flown Air New Zealand, I know it can be done a lot better than Philippine Airlines did on four flights out of four.

          What’s in a name?   

Not all galaxies have the luxury of possessing a simple moniker or quirky nickname. The subject of this NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope image was one of the unlucky ones, and goes by the rather unpoetic name of 2XMM J143450.5+033843.

Such a name may seem like a random jumble of numbers and letters, but like all galactic epithets it has a distinct meaning. This galaxy, for example, was detected and observed as part of the second X-ray sky survey performed by ESA’s XMM-Newton Observatory. Its celestial coordinates form the rest of the bulky name, following the “J”: a right ascension value of 14h 34m 50.5s (this can be likened to terrestrial longitude), and a declination of +03d 38m 43s (this can be likened to terrestrial latitude). The other fuzzy object in the frame was named in the same way — it is a bright galaxy named 2XMM J143448.3+033749.

2XMM J143450.5+033843 lies nearly 400 million light-years away from Earth. It is a Seyfert galaxy that is dominated by something known as an Active Galactic Nucleus — its core is thought to contain a supermassive black hole that is emitting huge amounts of radiation, pouring energetic X-rays out into the Universe.

          It's Not a Bomb — It's Just My College Application   
It's true that high school guidance counselors are busy folks, and they probably don't have time to teach their students every nuance about what it takes to get into college. However, this incident is a bit over the top, in terms of a student lacking appropriate knowledge. According to the Associated Press:
A poorly packaged college application prompted a call to the bomb squad at Eastern Illinois University. Emergency crews evacuated a campus building Friday, after a postal carrier discovered a disheveled-looking package heading for the college's admissions office. "There was no return address, it was poorly written, poorly addressed to the university, there were misspellings," school spokeswoman Vicki Woodard said Saturday. "There was some tape over it. Just the overall appearance was rather strange." Explosives investigators X-rayed the package and blocked off a nearby street before they discovered the envelope contained only an application to the 12,500-student school.
A school representative indicated that in spite of the scary look of the package, it would likely be processed like any other application.

OK - so here's the question. Did no one ever teach this kid that neatness counts? We all remember Pigpen from the Peanuts cartoons, right? And we probably all had someone in our high school graduating class who had that disheveled look about him (or her). But seriously, where were this kid's parents? Where was any adult guidance, whatsoever, to help him get the application completed and mailed with a modicum of professionalism? God bless him for getting it done at all, and I truly do hope he gets in and earns his degree. No one who wants it that badly should be denied the opportunity.

There are so many things we take for granted every day. The ability to read a map, follow a recipe, read AT ALL. Our kids cannot do it all on their own. Just because they can make their own PB&J and get themselves dressed and out the door to school on time does not mean they don't need us anymore. It's a funny story, on its face, this would-be bomb threat and the paranoia that led to an evacuation. But how sad is it that any person, by the time he's 17 or 18 years old, has not had enough coaching and help to know to do it any other way?

Lincoln NB (SPX) Jun 28, 2017
Physicists from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln are seeing an everyday phenomenon in a new light. By focusing laser light to a brightness one billion times greater than the surface of the sun - the brightest light ever produced on Earth - the physicists have observed changes in a vision-enabling interaction between light and matter. Those changes yielded unique X-ray pulses with t
          The (bad) luck of the draw; more evidence   
A while back, Vogelstein and Tomasetti (V-T) published a paper in Science in which it was argued that most cancers cannot be attributed to known environmental factors, but instead were due simply to the errors in DNA replication that occur throughout life when cells divide.  See our earlier 2-part series on this.

Essentially the argument is that knowledge of the approximate number of at-risk cell divisions per unit of age could account for the age-related pattern of increase in cancers of different organs, if one ignored some obviously environmental causes like smoking.  Cigarette smoke is a mutagen and if cancer is a mutagenic disease, as it certainly largely is, then that will account for the dose-related pattern of lung and oral cancers.

This got enraged responses from environmental epidemiologists whose careers are vested in the idea that if people would avoid carcinogens they'd reduce their cancer risk.  Of course, this is partly just the environmental epidemiologists' natural reaction to their ox being gored--threats to their grant largesse and so on.  But it is also true that environmental factors of various kinds, in addition to smoking, have been associated with cancer; some dietary components, viruses, sunlight, even diagnostic x-rays if done early and often enough, and other factors.

Most associated risks from agents like these are small, compared to smoking, but not zero and an at least legitimate objection to V-T's paper might be that the suggestion that environmental pollution, dietary excess, and so on don't matter when it comes to cancer is wrong.  I think V-T are saying no such thing.  Clearly some environmental exposures are mutagens and it would be a really hard-core reactionary to deny that mutations are unrelated to cancer.  Other external or lifestyle agents are mitogens; they stimulate cell division, and it would be silly not to think they could have a role in cancer.  If and when they do, it is not by causing mutations per se.  Instead mitogenic exposures in themselves just stimulate cell division, which is dangerous if the cell is already transformed into a cancer cell.  But it is also a way to increase cancer by just what V-T stress: the natural occurrence of mutations when cells divide.

There are a few who argue that cancer is due to transposable elements moving around and/or inserting into the genome where they can cause cells to misbehave, or other perhaps unknown factors such as of tissue organization, which can lead cells to 'misbehave', rather than mutations.

These alternatives are, currently, a rather minor cause of cancer.  In response to their critics, V-T have just published a new multi-national analysis that they suggest supports their theory.  They attempted to correct for the number of at-risk cells and so on, and found a convincing pattern that supports the intrinsic-mutation viewpoint.  They did this to rebut their critics.

This is at least in part an unnecessary food-fight.  When cells divide, DNA replication errors occur.  This seems well-documented (indeed, Vogelstein did some work years ago that showed evidence for somatic mutation--that is, DNA changes that are not inherited--and genomes of cancer cells compared to normal cells of the same individual.  Indeed, for decades this has been known in various levels of detail.  Of course, showing that this is causal rather than coincidental is a separate problem, because the fact of mutations occurring during cell division doesn't necessarily mean that the mutations are causal. However, for several cancers the repeated involvement of specific genes, and the demonstration of mutations in the same gene or genes in many different individuals, or of the same effect in experimental mice and so on, is persuasive evidence that mutational change is important in cancer.

The specifics of that importance are in a sense somewhat separate from the assertion that environmental epidemiologists are complaining about.  Unfortunately, to a great extent this is a silly debate. In essence, besides professional pride and careerism, the debate should not be about whether mutations are involved in cancer causation but whether specific environmental sources of mutation are identifiable and individually strong enough, as x-rays and tobacco smoke are, to be identified and avoided.  Smoking targets particular cells in the oral cavity and lungs.  But exposures that are more generic, but individually rare or not associated with a specific item like smoking, and can't be avoided, might raise the rate of somatic mutation generally.  Just having a body temperature may be one such factor, for example.

I would say that we are inevitably exposed to chemicals and so on that will potentially damage cells, mutation being one such effect.  V-T are substantially correct, from what the data look like, in saying that (in our words) namable, specific, and avoidable environmental mutations are not the major systematic, organ-targeting cause of cancer.  Vague and/or generic exposure to mutagens will lead to mutations more or less randomly among our cells (maybe, depending on the agent, differently depending on how deep in our bodies the cells are relative to the outside world or other means of exposure).  The more at-risk cells, the longer they're at risk, and so on, the greater the chance that some cell will experience a transforming set of changes.

Most of us probably inherit mutations in some of these genes from conception, and have to await other events to occur (whether these are mutational or of another nature as mentioned above).  The age patterns of cancers seem very convincingly to show that.  The real key factor here is the degree to which specific, identifiable, avoidable mutational agents can be identified.  It seems silly or, perhaps as likely, mere professional jealousy, to resist that idea.

These statements apply even if cancers are not all, or not entirely, due to mutational effects.  And, remember, not all of the mutations required to transform a cell need be of somatic origin.  Since cancer is mostly, and obviously, a multi-factor disease genetically (not a single mutation as a rule), we should not have our hackles raised if we find what seems obvious, that mutations are part of cell division, part of life.

There are curious things about cancer, such as our large body size but delayed onset ages relative to the occurrence of cancer in smaller, and younger animals like mice.  And different animals of different lifespans and body sizes, even different rodents, have different lifetime cancer risks (some may be the result of details of their inbreeding history or of inbreeding itself).  Mouse cancer rates increase with age and hence the number of at-risk cell divisions, but the overall risk at very young ages despite many fewer cell divisions (yet similar genome sizes) shows that even the spontaneous mutation idea of V-T has problems.  After all, elephants are huge and live very long lives; why don't they get cancer much earlier?

Overall, if if correct, V-T's view should not give too much comfort to our 'Precision' genomic medicine sloganeers, another aspect of budget protection, because the bad luck mutations are generally somatic, not germline, and hence not susceptible to Big Data epidemiology, genetic or otherwise, that depends on germ-line variation as the predictor.

Related to this are the numerous reports of changes in life expectancy among various segments of society and how they are changing based on behaviors, most recently, for example, the opiod epidemic among whites in depressed areas of the US.  Such environmental changes are not predictable specifically, not even in principle, and can't be built into genome-based Big Data, or the budget-promoting promises coming out of NIH about such 'precision'.  Even estimated lifetime cancer risks associated with mutations in clear-cut risk-affecting genes like BRCA1 mutations and breast cancer, vary greatly from population to population and study to study.  The V-T debate, and their obviously valid point, regardless of the details, is only part of the lifetime cancer risk story.

Just after posting this, I learned of a new story on this 'controversy' in The Atlantic.  It is really a silly debate, as noted in my original version.  It tacitly makes many different assumptions about whether this or that tinkering with our lifestyles will add to or reduce the risk of cancer and hence support the anti-V-T lobby.  If we're going to get into the nitty-gritty and typically very minor details about, for example, whether the statistical colon-cancer-protective effect of aspirin shows that V-T were wrong, then this really does smell of academic territory defense.

Why do I say that?  Because if we go down that road, we'll have to say that statins are cancer-causing, and so is exercise, and kidney transplants and who knows what else.  They cause cancer by allowing people to live longer, and accumulate more mutational damage to their cells.  And the supposedly serious opioid epidemic among Trump supporters actually is protective, because those people are dying earlier and not getting cancer!

The main point is that mutations are clearly involved in carcinogenesis, cell division life-history is clearly involved in carcinogenesis, environmental mutagens are clearly involved in carcinogenesis, and inherited mutations are clearly contributory to the additional effects of life-history events.  The silly extremism to which the objectors to V-T would take us would be to say that, obviously, if we avoided any interaction whatsoever with our environment, we'd never get cancer.  Of course, we'd all be so demented and immobilized with diverse organ-system failures that we wouldn't realize our good fortune in not getting cancer.

The story and much of the discussion on all sides is also rather naive even about the nature of cancer (and how many or of which mutations etc it takes to get cancer); but that's for another post sometime.

ADDENDUM 2
I'll add another new bit to my post, that I hadn't thought of when I wrote the original.  We have many ways to estimate mutation rates, in nature and in the laboratory.  They include parent-offspring comparison in genomewide sequencing samples, and there have been sperm-to-sperm comparisons.  I'm sure there are many other sets of data (see Michael Lynch in Trends in Genetics 2010 Aug; 26(8): 345–352.  These give a consistent picture and one can say, if one wants to, that the inherent mutation rate is due to identifiable environmental factors, but given the breadth of the data that's not much different than saying that mutations are 'in the air'.  There are even sex-specific differences.

The numerous mutation detection and repair mechanisms, built into genomes, adds to the idea that mutations are part of life, for example that they are not related to modern human lifestyles.  Of course, evolution depends on mutation, so it cannot and never has been reduced to zero--a species that couldn't change doesn't last.  Mutations occur in plants and animals and prokaryotes, in all environments and I believe, generally at rather similar species-specific rates.

If you want to argue that every mutation has an external (environmental) cause rather than an internal molecular one, that is merely saying there's no randomness in life or imperfection in molecular processes.  That is as much a philosophical as an empirical assertion (as perhaps any quantum physicist can tell you!).  The key, as  asserted in the post here, is that for the environmentalists' claim to make sense, to be a mutational cause in the meaningful sense, the force or factor must be systematic and identifiable and tissue-specific, and it must be shown how it gets to the internal tissue in question and not to other tissues on the way in, etc.

Given how difficult it has been to chase down most environmental carcinogenic factors, to which exposure is more than very rare, and that the search has been going on for a very long time, and only a few have been found that are, in themselves, clearly causal (ultraviolet radiation, Human Papilloma Virus, ionizing radiation, the ones mentioned in the post), whatever is left over must be very weak, non tissue-specific, rare, and the like.  Even radiation-induced lung cancer in uranium minors has been challenging to prove (for example, because miners also largely were smokers).

It is not much of a stretch to simply say that even if, in principle, all mutations in our body's lifetime were due to external exposures, and the relevant mutagens could be identified and shown in some convincing way to be specifically carcinogenic in specific tissues, in practice if not ultra-reality, then the aggregate exposures to such mutations are unavoidable and epistemically random with respect to tissue and gene.  That I would say is the essence of the V-T finding.

Quibbling about that aspect of carcinogenesis is for those who have already determined how many angels dance on the head of a pin.

Holes by Louis Sachar

Stanley Yelnats has lived a life full of bad luck and it's all because of his "no-good-dirty-rotten-pig-stealing-great-great-grandfather." Now his bad luck has reached an all-time low. After being wrongly accused of stealing a pair of sneaker belonging to baseball legend Clyde "Sweet Feet" Livingston, Stanley is shipped off to Camp Green Lake.

At first the thought of Camp Green Lake didn't scare Stanley in the slightest. How bad could a summer camp be? It was when he began to approach the camp did Stanley realize the truth. There was no lake and nothing here was even slightly green. Every day Stanley had to carry out his sentence by digging a hole. The hole must be five feet deep and five feet wide on both sides. If the burning desert sun or the digging itself didn't kill him, Stanley was certain the rumored deadly yellow spotted lizards would finish him off.

Stanley becomes friends with his fellow prisoners, all of whom go by nicknames like Zero, Armpit, and X-Ray and soon he is known as Caveman. Every day they dig their holes in hopes of discovering something that might interest the Warden and result in the rest of the day off. When Stanley discovers a fossilized fish in one of his holes and gets no reward for it, Stanley begins to wonder just what the Warden is looking for.

As far as dark comedies go,
Holes is top-notch. Intertwining the history of Green Lake, Stanley's relatives, and the horrible truth behind the Warden's ulterior motives of the camp, Sachar creates a story of self-realization, friendship, and coincidences destined to be a favorite for years to come.

          "Supergirl" - Kneel Before 'Zod'   


Actor Mark Gibbon ("The Chronicles Of Riddick") portrays 'Kryptonian' super-villain 'General Zod' in the season finale of The CW's "Supergirl":


Zod was previously played by Terrence Stamp in the features "Superman" and "Superman II", Michael Shannon in "Man of Steel" and Callum Blue in the TV series "Smallville".


The character 'Dru-Zod' created by Robert Bernstein and George Papp, debuted in DC's "Adventure Comics" #283 (April 1961), as a warlord from 'Krypton', home planet of 'Superman'. 


Like all Kryptonians under a yellow sun, General Zod possesses high-level superhuman strength, speed and endurance sufficient to stand against 'Superman' and other Kryptonians; super hearing; x-ray vision; telescopic, microscopic and heat vision; super-breath and freeze-breath; virtual invulnerability; accelerated healing and flight.


Due to his background as a Kryptonian general, Zod possesses a detailed knowledge of military tactics, battle strategy and competent military leader. Because he was trained in fighting arts long before receiving his abilities, he typically has an edge over Superman's brawling skills, over-reliance on superhuman strength, and basic knowledge of advanced human and Kryptonian hand-to-hand combat.

          Flashlight Morphs into Floodlight   
My LORD knows I keep moving the beam of my flashlight to find His footprints. 

I want to follow His lead and keep up with His plan of progress for my life.

He knows I'm living in a world darkened by sin and it's hard to see.

This week I caught a glimpse of the intense journey ahead.

It started the day I shoveled some snow. Nothing out of the ordinary for winter in Maine.

I didn't do much, but I came inside and I was hurting.

At first it was a vague discomfort. That night my lower back started to ache.

By the next morning it earned the title pain and I applied heat to relax the muscles. 

Three days later I had to admit I was in trouble. My lower left side felt the same way it had before my hip was replaced. The whole area was deteriorating and I was having trouble walking. My mind began to spin with the possibility that I'd injured my bionic implant. 

Then what?  =8-O

The next day I gave in and called my surgeon's office. He returned my call and, from what I was telling him, he said I likely strained my back. I did as he directed, applying ice and heat, and taking an anti-inflammatory. 

My mind started to stew over possible scenarios. I'd lifted too much weight and pulled something apart. I'd reached out too far and loosened the screw holding in the socket. Or maybe I slightly dislocated the whole joint. Each one was more dreadful than the previous.

Three days later I had to take action. I reported that the symptoms were continuing and set an appointment to be seen. Three days later still I drove to the doctor's office. From one dark thought to the next the pain became a monster ready to devour my life. 

I was sure that any problems with the bionic device, even a small one, would mean more surgery. More surgery would mean repeating the recovery process. More downtime would mean I'd have to cancel my plans, especially my Spring Tour. More forced isolation would mean feeling helpless again. More inactivity, especially after such a remarkably speedy recovery, would lead to nothing but disappointment and fester into hopelessness. 

I was convinced of every single detail.

Right there on Route 89, before I'd even gotten to the office I was caught in a death spiral. My world had closed in. Nothing but negative, even dire, possibilities remained open to me. 

If you've been following this adventure with me in any other places, you'll know how the appointment went. After extensive x-rays and a thorough examination I got a resounding message that the implant is fine. The conclusion is that I wrenched my back, causing the muscle memory to repeat the way it responded to my deteriorated hip. The tightness and spasms, awkwardness and instability were all a product of confused physical connections.

Are you with me?

The x-rays and the confidence of the doctor in what we were seeing brought my crazy-making mind to a halt. On my way out of the office I started willing my posture to be straight and my stride secure. There was a bit of stretching, but it felt good. My wild thoughts were dismissed by the facts. By the end of that day, without a single physical therapy appointment as prescribed, most of the pain and discomfort were gone. 

I considered that reality as I climbed into bed 10 long days after I moved that bit of snows. The transformation was striking. I wondered what this experience might have to do with the rest of my life. It's a question I ask myself often. Maybe that's what pastor's wives do through a life of sermon illustrations.

Whatever the reason, that's when the floodlight came on.

What if the crazy-making process is a habit?

What if every time I/we participate in it, we're actually crippling ourselves with our own thoughts? 

What if it would only take a serious look at the facts to dissolve the emotional, psychological, spiritual pain we put ourselves through?

Now THOSE are some answers to ponder.

More importantly, what if God delivered these circumstances to alert me/us to behavior that is stealing our joy? And He wants us content, fully enfolded in His arms.

In case you are caught in this dynamic, or have a friend who is (ahem), feel free to borrow my strategy. 

Habit Busting Tactics

1. Ask Holy Spirit to wave a red flag at me when my mind is pulled in a wayward direction.

2. Respond immediately by shaking myself, turning away from the destructive behavior and toward the LORD.

3. Build a replacement habit by putting a Godward activity in its place, such as remembering who He is and how He loves me, reciting or meditating on Scripture, singing meaningful spiritual songs.

If this is all news to you, praise God for His gracious gift and share this with others.
If you too are being challenged in this area, what will you do to win the victory?

Me: Uhhhhhhh why is she here and not under bio-hazard arrest?

Glynda: ::shrugs::

Because that is what we always expect from management, a fucking shrug!

Me: Can you make sure she doesn’t go around touching everything in sight? Maybe sticks to the phone in her X-Ray room?

Glynda [another fucking shrug]: Just don’t touch your mouth/eyes/nose.

Do you guys know how hard it is to keep from tapping your lips when you’re thinking? I mean, I’m not saying I rely solely on this method to coax answers outta my brain but it is a habit, I have to tap-tap-tap my fingers over my lips as if I was playing a flute.

Me: I don’t mean to sound insensitive but it’s just that I went all these years trying not to catch any type of crazy diseases so I’m a little worried!

Glynda: You’ll be fine as long as you disinfect your hands every time you come back to your desk. Try really hard not to touch your face.

Do you guys know how badly a nose starts itching once it knows (pun pun pun!) you can’t touch it?

Scarecrow, I don’t know what you did to get herpes of the mouth but I hope it was worth it!

          The Coma Galaxy Cluster   
The Coma Galaxy Cluster

  • Long arms of hot gas been discovered in the Coma cluster of galaxies.
  • These arms were likely formed by hot gas being stripped and left behind smaller clusters of galaxies as they merged with Coma.
  • These arms span at least a half a million light years.
  • Galaxies clusters are the largest structures in the Universe held together by gravity.

A team of astronomers has discovered enormous arms of hot gas in the Coma cluster of galaxies by using NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory and ESA's XMM-Newton. These features, which span at least half a million light years, provide insight into how the Coma cluster has grown through mergers of smaller groups and clusters of galaxies to become one of the largest structures in the Universe held together by gravity.

A new composite image, with Chandra data in pink and optical data from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey appearing in white and blue, features these spectacular arms (mouse over the image for their location). In this image, the Chandra data have been processed so extra detail can be seen.

The X-ray emission is from multimillion-degree gas and the optical data shows galaxies in the Coma Cluster, which contain only about 1/6 the mass in hot gas. Only the brightest X-ray emission is shown here, to emphasize the arms, but the hot gas is present over the entire field of view.

Researchers think that these arms were most likely formed when smaller galaxy clusters had their gas stripped away by the head wind created by the motion of the cluster through the hot gas, in much the same way that the headwind created by a roller coaster blows the hats off riders.

Coma is an unusual galaxy cluster because it contains not one, but two giant elliptical galaxies near its center. These two giant elliptical galaxies are probably the vestiges from each of the two largest clusters that merged with Coma in the past. The researchers also uncovered other signs of past collisions and mergers in the data.

From their length, and the speed of sound in the hot gas (~4 million km/hr), the newly discovered X-ray arms are estimated to be about 300 million years old, and they appear to have a rather smooth shape. This gives researchers some clues about the conditions of the hot gas in Coma. Most theoretical models expect that mergers between clusters like those in Coma will produce strong turbulence, like ocean water that has been churned by many passing ships. Instead, the smooth shape of these lengthy arms points to a rather calm setting for the hot gas in the Coma cluster, even after many mergers.

Large-scale magnetic fields are likely responsible for the small amount of turbulence that is present in Coma. Estimating the amount of turbulence in a galaxy cluster has been a challenging problem for astrophysicists. Researchers have found a range of answers, some of them conflicting, and so observations of other clusters are needed.

Two of the arms appear to be connected to a group of galaxies located about two million light years from the center of Coma. One or both of these arms connects to a larger structure seen in the XMM-Newton data, and spans a distance or at least 1.5 million light years. A very thin tail also appears behind one of the galaxies in Coma. This is probably evidence of gas being stripped from a single galaxy, in addition to the groups or clusters that have merged there.

          Supernova Remnant G299.2-2.9   
Supernova Remnant G299.2-2.9

  • G299.2-2.9 is a supernova remnant found about 16,000 light years from Earth in the Milky Way galaxy.
  • It is the remains of a Type Ia supernova, the class of explosions astronomers use to measure the accelerating Universe and dark energy.
  • High-mass stars are those that contain 8 times the Sun's mass or more.
  • Because it is older than most Type Ia remnants astronomers have found, G299.2-2.9 gives a look at how the remnants evolve over time.

G299.2-2.9 is an intriguing supernova remnant found about 16,000 light years away in the Milky Way galaxy . Evidence points to G299.2-2.9 being the remains of a Type Ia supernova, where a white dwarf has grown sufficiently massive to cause a thermonuclear explosion. Because it is older than most supernova remnants caused by these explosions, at an age of about 4500 years, G299.2-2.9 provides astronomers with an excellent opportunity to study how these objects evolve over time. It also provides a probe of the Type Ia supernova explosion that produced this structure.

This composite image shows G299.2-2.9 in X-ray light from Chandra, along with data from the ROSAT satellite (orange), that has been overlaid on an infrared image from the Two Micron All-Sky Survey (2MASS). The faint X-ray emission from the inner region reveals relatively large amounts of iron and silicon, as expected for a remnant of a Type Ia supernova. The outer shell of the remnant is complex, with at least a double shell structure. Typically, such a complex outer shell is associated with a star that has exploded into space where gas and dust are not uniformly distributed.

Since most theories to explain Type Ia supernovas assume they go off in a uniform environment, detailed studies of this complicated outer shell should help astronomers improve their understanding of the environments where these explosions occur. It is very important to understand the details of Type Ia explosions because astronomers use them as cosmic mile markers to measure the accelerated expansion of the universe and study dark energy. The discovery of this accelerated expansion in the late 1990s led to the recent award of the Nobel Prize in Physics.

          The 2XMM J143450.5+033843 Galaxy   
The 2XMM J143450.5+033843 Galaxy

Not all galaxies have the luxury of possessing a simple moniker or quirky nickname. The subject of this NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope image was one of the unlucky ones, and goes by the rather unpoetic name of 2XMM J143450.5+033843.

Such a name may seem like a random jumble of numbers and letters, but like all galactic epithets it has a distinct meaning. This galaxy, for example, was detected and observed as part of the second X-ray sky survey performed by ESA’s XMM-Newton Observatory. Its celestial coordinates form the rest of the bulky name, following the “J”: a right ascension value of 14h 34m 50.5s (this can be likened to terrestrial longitude), and a declination of +03d 38m 43s (this can be likened to terrestrial latitude). The other fuzzy object in the frame was named in the same way — it is a bright galaxy named 2XMM J143448.3+033749.

2XMM J143450.5+033843 lies nearly 400 million light-years away from Earth. It is a Seyfert galaxy that is dominated by something known as an Active Galactic Nucleus — its core is thought to contain a supermassive black hole that is emitting huge amounts of radiation, pouring energetic X-rays out into the Universe.

          Colliding Galaxies Arp 299   
Colliding Galaxies Arp 299

  • Arp 299 is a system where two galaxies are in the process of merging.
  • Chandra data has revealed 25 bright point-like X-ray sources in Arp 299, 14 of which are categorized as "ULXs".
  • These ULXs are likely binary systems where a black hole or neutron star is pulling material from a companion star.
  • Such a high concentration of ULXs is rare, but caused by a high rate of star formation triggered by the galactic merger.

What would happen if you took two galaxies and mixed them together over millions of years? A new image including data from NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory reveals the cosmic culinary outcome.

Arp 299 is a system located about 140 million light years from Earth. It contains two galaxies that are merging, creating a partially blended mix of stars from each galaxy in the process.

However, this stellar mix is not the only ingredient. New data from Chandra reveals 25 bright X-ray sources sprinkled throughout the Arp 299 concoction. Fourteen of these sources are such strong emitters of X-rays that astronomers categorize them as "ultra-luminous X-ray sources," or ULXs.

These ULXs are found embedded in regions where stars are currently forming at a rapid rate. Most likely, the ULXs are binary systems where a neutron star or black hole is pulling matter away from a companion star that is much more massive than the Sun. These double star systems are called high-mass X-ray binaries.

Such a loaded buffet of high-mass X-ray binaries is rare, but Arp 299 is one of the most powerful star-forming galaxies in the nearby Universe. This is due at least in part to the merger of the two galaxies, which has triggered waves of star formation. The formation of high-mass X-ray binaries is a natural consequence of such blossoming star birth as some of the young massive stars, which often form in pairs, evolve into these systems.

This new composite image of Arp 299 contains X-ray data from Chandra (pink), higher-energy X-ray data from NuSTAR (purple), and optical data from the Hubble Space Telescope (white and faint brown). Arp 299 also emits copious amounts of infrared light that has been detected by observatories such as NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope, but those data are not included in this composite.

The infrared and X-ray emission of the galaxy is remarkably similar to that of galaxies found in the very distant Universe, offering an opportunity to study a relatively nearby analog of these distant objects. A higher rate of galaxy collisions occurred when the universe was young, but these objects are difficult to study directly because they are located at colossal distances.

The Chandra data also reveal diffuse X-ray emission from hot gas distributed throughout Arp 299. Scientists think the high rate of supernovas, another common trait of star-forming galaxies, has expelled much of this hot gas out of the center of the system.

          MOST DOCTORS DON'T KNOW THE RADIATION LEVEL OF CAT SCANS   


Using extended doses of encircling X-rays, CAT scans give a detailed look inside your body, revealing not only bones but soft tissue and blood vessels, as well. According to the health site tumors, heart disease, osteoporosis, blood clots, spinal fractures, nerve damage, and lots of other problems. Because it can uncover so much, its use has become widespread and continues to rise. In fact, healthy people are getting scans just to see if anything might be wrong, kind of like a

routine check-up. The downside, and it's a doozy, is that a CAT scan jolts you with 100 to 250 times the dose of radiation that you get from a chest X-ray. What's even more alarming is that most doctors apparently don't know this. An emergency physician from the Yale School of Medicine surveyed 45 of his colleagues about the pros and cons of CAT scans. A mere nine of them said that they tell patients about the radiation. This might be just as well, in a weird way, since most of them had absolutely no clue about how much radiation CAT scans give off. When asked to compare the blast from a chest Xray to the blast from a CAT scan, only 22 percent of the docs got it right. As for the other threequarters,

The Medical Post relates:

Three of the doctors said the dose was either less than or equal to a chest X-ray.

Twenty (44%) of the doctors said the dose was greater than a chest X-ray, but less than 10 times the dose. Just over one-fifth of the doctors (22%) said the radiation dose from a CT was more than 10 times that of an X-ray but less than 100 times the dose.

Only ten of them knew that a single CAT scan equals 100 to 250 chest X-rays, while two thought that the scans were even worse than that. Feel free to give your doc a pop quiz during your next office visit.

On the Structure and Mechanism of Two-Pore Channels.

FEBS J. 2017 Jun 28;:

Authors: Kintzer AF, Stroud RM

Abstract
In eukaryotes, two-pore channels (TPC1-3) comprise a family of ion channels that regulate the conductance of Na(+) and Ca(2+) ions across cellular membranes. TPC1-3 form endolysosomal channels, but TPC3 can also function in the plasma membrane. TPC1/3 are voltage-gated channels, but TPC2 opens in response to binding endolysosome-specific lipid phosphatidylinositol-3,5-diphosphate (PI(3,5)P2 ). Filoviruses, such as Ebola, exploit TPC-mediated ion release as a means of escape from the endolysosome during infection. Antagonists that block TPC1/2 channel conductance abrogate filoviral infections. TPC1/2 form complexes with the mechanistic target of rapamycin complex 1 (mTORC1) at the endolysosomal surface that couple cellular metabolic state and cytosolic nutrient concentrations to the control of membrane potential and pH. We determined the X-ray structure of TPC1 from Arabidopsis thaliana (AtTPC1) to 2.87Å resolution-one of the two first reports of a TPC channel structure. Here we summarize these findings and the implications that the structure may have for understanding endolysosomal control mechanisms and their role in human health.

          Swiss examine ‘extraordinary’ Egyptian faux toe   
Egyptologists from the University of Basel have been studying a 3,000-year-old wooden toe found in a necropolis near Luxor, formerly known as Thebes.  “This extraordinary piece was a sensational find,” Andrea Loprieno-Gnirs of the university’s department of ancient civilisations told swissinfo.ch. She coordinated the archaeological dig in Sheikh ´Abd el-Qurna, whose oldest tombs date back to the early second millennium BC. Fitted with a lace-up leather strap, the shapely prosthetic toe belonged to a priest’s daughter, who was buried with it near royalty in an upper-class tomb. “They often wore sandals, so you can imagine that a well-formed foot was important. The wooden toe shows that she had a certain living standard, and also that there were craftsmen capable of making such prosthetics,” Loprieno-Gnirs said. Using modern microscopy, X-ray technology and computer tomography, researchers could tell that the toe had been refitted several times to ensure the comfort of the ...

They are a full service clinic with x-ray, ultrasound, surgery, and lab analysis on site. This is one of the best vet clinics I have ever been to!


          Radiation & Chemo Treatments Continue   
Good Evening to everyone here "At Welcome To My Little Corner of The World"
Another day dawns and more treatments continue, as of today Thurs, 11-18- I have 17 more Radiation treatments and not quite sure of the amount left on the Chemo I should find that out when I see the Chemo Dr. on Tues. The chemo continues with a 6hr treatment to include Chemo for one hr, steroids for 20 min and another drug used to treat nausea. Now remember everyone is different and how they handle their treatments I have found out that receiving chemo for 5 days with Steroids is doing a job on my sleep pattern also in some cases it's called "Chemo Rage" and is not uncommon, so the next step get something to bring down the anxiety level..jeez always something to keep the ball rolling ! Soon the cure will be in sight.


I had to have a ct done this am then saw the Radiation Oncologist who suggested I get a chest x-ray cause my right lung (with the tumor) was congested well, thank God nothing showed I was allowed to go home, possible wheezing from the Pulmonary Fibrosis which we knew may happen.

So that's about all for today I will try to do better and keep you all posted.

Until we meet again my friends remember,

Inhale~~~123

          Compact arrangement for femtosecond laser induced generation of broadband hard x-ray pulses   
arXiv:1706.06819

by: Giles, Carlos
Abstract:
We present a simple apparatus for femtosecond laser induced generation of X-rays. The apparatus consists of a vacuum chamber containing an off-axis parabolic focusing mirror, a reel system, a debris protection setup, a quartz window for the incoming laser beam, and an X-ray window. Before entering the vacuum chamber, the femtosecond laser is expanded with an all reflective telescope design to minimize laser intensity losses and pulse broadening while allowing for focusing as well as peak intensity optimization. The laser pulse duration was characterized by second-harmonic generation frequency resolved optical gating. A high spatial resolution knife-edge technique was implemented to characterize the beam size at the focus of the X-ray generation apparatus. We have characterized x-ray spectra obtained with three different samples: titanium, iron:chromium alloy, and copper. In all three cases, the femtosecond laser generated X-rays give spectral lines consistent with literature reports. We present a rms amplitude analysis of the generated X-ray pulses, and provide an upper bound for the duration of the X-ray pulses.

          X-Ray Record Release From Crashing Hotels!   
Image result for crashing hotels band


Contact - info@crashinghotels.com

On June 29th, dark electric dance rock duo, Crashing Hotels will release 150 extremely rare and collectable “Bone Records” in support of their 2nd spring single, ‘Tsunami’ from their sophomore album, “Exploration Exploitation” via the announcement of their Kickstarter campaign. Pressed in the Czech Republic on 150 hand selected, unique human x-rays, the Tsunami 7” single pays homage to the Soviet Union music enthusiasts who resisted their government’s attempt to eradicate art and music from their lives. During the 1950’s the Soviet Union was experiencing severe censorship of the arts, along with an extreme shortage of raw materials used in music duplication due to the Cold War. This led to people living without art and music and an innate human need for self expression exploded out of the underground. People began to risk 3-5 year prison sentences to produce, buy, and distribute illegal western Jazz and Rock & Roll.

The Tsunami 7” is a ghostly reminder that America once invented Jazz and Rock & Roll, but now is a place with bare-bones support of the arts. A society lacking invention and design looking for copycat acts who gain the most amount of clicks. This derivative culture is choking the life out of the arts and Crashing Hotels is the resistance. This is not only a press release for the band’s 2nd spring single, but an urgent reminder to support and engage with the arts, because they are fading away, right in front of your eyes.

About the song

‘Tsunami’ is an expression of respect for the rareness of life and immense energy that struck the eastern coast of Japan at 2:46pm on March 11th, 2011. The mournful lyrics echo atop Wu-Tang like, dance production with the energy and consistency of an optimistic haunting. A song as dark as it is bright, the melody and cadence of ‘Tsunami’ is meant to emotionally inspire listeners to dance and sing along with the band, so that they as well can share their love and respect for the lives lost on March 11th, 2011.

At low temperature the alkyne reacts quantitatively giving the unstable adducts [Pt-3(CO)(3)(PR3)(3)(mu (3)-alkyne)]. The stereochemistry of the intermediate [Pt-3(CO)(3)(PPh3)(3)(mu (3)-(BuO2CC)-Bu-t drop (CCO2Bu)-Bu-t)] 5has been deduced from low temperature Pt-195-{H-1}, P-31-{H-1} and C-13-{H-1} NMR spectra. At higher temperature a fluxional process renders two of the three platinum atoms equivalent on the NMR timescale. At room temperature the alkynes convert the starting clusters 1-4 to the stable dinuclear complexes [Pt-2(CO)(2)(PR3)(2)(mu -R'O2CC drop CCO2R')] (R'= CH3, PR3, = PPh3 6; R = Bu-t, PR3 = PPh3 7; PPh(2)Bz 8; PCy3 9 and (PPr3)-Pr-i 10) in which the alkyne coordination has the C-C bond collinear with the Pt-Pt bond (6 and 7) or perpendicular to the Pt-Pt axis (9 and 10). The stereochemistry of these two types of dinuclear complexes has been established by NMR and IR studies and confirmed by X-ray diffraction analyses of 8 and 9.

Causes, incidence, and risk factors
Hemorrhagic stroke occurs when a blood vessel bursts inside the brain. The brain is very sensitive to bleeding and damage can occur very rapidly, either because of the presence of the blood itself, or because the fluid increases pressure on the brain and harms it by pressing it against the skull.Bleeding irritates the brain tissue, causing swelling. The surrounding tissues of the brain resist the expansion of the bleeding, which is finally contained by forming a mass (hematoma). Both swelling and hematomawill compress and displace normal brain tissue.Most often, hemorrhagic stroke is associated with high blood pressure, which stresses the artery walls until they break.

Another cause of hemorrhagic stroke is an aneurysm. This is a weak spot in an artery wall, which balloons out because of the pressure of the blood circulating inside the affected artery. Eventually, it can burst and cause serious harm. The larger the aneurysm is, the more likely it is to burst. It is unclear why people develop aneurysms, but genes may play a role, since aneurysms run in families.Stroke can also be caused by the accumulation of a protein called amyloid within the artery walls, particularly in the elderly. This makes the arteries more prone to bleeding.

Amyloid protein is also implicated in the brain damage related to Alzheimer's disease, but the difference is that people with Alzheimer´s disease have amyloid accumulation in the brain tissue instead of in the arteries. Therefore people with Alzheimer´s usually do not develop brain bleeding.Some people with brain hemorrhage have abnormal connections between arteries and veins. Under normal circumstances, circulating blood travels through the arteries into the capillaries, where it provides nutrients and oxygen to the tissues. Once the blood has deposited the nutrients and oxygen, it is carried back to the heart from the capillaries via the veins.

In some people, however, a brain artery may connect directly to a vein, instead of going through the capillaries first. This is called an arterial-venous malformation (AVM). Since blood pressure in the arteries is much greater than in the veins, the veins may rupture, causing bleeding into the brain.Another important brain disease that can cause bleeding is cancer. This is especially true for cancers that spread to the brain from distant organs, such as the breast, skin, and thyroid.

About 20% of strokes are hemorrhagic -- but the other 80% are caused by the opposite problem: too little blood reaching an area of the brain, which is usually due to a clot that has blocked a blood vessel. This is called "ischemic stroke." This type of stroke can sometimes lead to a brain hemorrhage because the affected brain tissue softens and this can lead to breaking down of small blood vessels.


In addition, brain hemorrhage can occur when people have problems forming blood clots. Clots, which are the body's way of stopping any bleeding, are formed by proteins called coagulation factors and by sticky blood cells called platelets. Whenever the coagulation factors or platelets do not work well or are insufficient in quantity, people may develop a tendency to bleed excessively.


Some medications (often used, ironically, to prevent ischemic stroke) prevent clot formation. These work by blocking the production of clotting factors (such as the blood thinner warfarin) or interfering with the function of platelets (such as aspirin). The most common side effects of such medications is bleeding, which may occasionally affect the brain. Controlling bleeding to avoid stroke is a very fine balancing act.

Illicit drugs, such as cocaine, can also cause hemorrhagic stroke.

Symptoms
  • Stroke symptoms are typically of sudden onset and may quickly become worse. The following is a list of possible problems:

  • Weakness or inability to move a body part

  • Numbness or loss of sensation

  • Decreased or lost vision (may be partial)

  • Speech difficulties

  • Inability to recognize or identify familiar things

  • Sudden headache

  • Vertigo (sensation of the world spinning around)

  • Dizziness

  • Loss of coordination

  • Swallowing difficulties

  • Sleepy, stuporous, lethargic, comatose, or unconscious



Signs and tests
A neurologic exam is almost always abnormal. The patient may look drowsy and confused. An eye examination may show abnormal eye movements, and changes may be seen upon retinal examination (examination of the back of the eye with an instrument called ophthalmoscope). The patient may have abnormal reflexes. However, these findings are not specific to brain hemorrhage.

The most important test to confirm the presence of a brain hemorrhage is a CT scan, which provides pictures of the brain. A CT scan should be obtained without delay. A brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan can also be obtained later to better understand what caused the bleeding. A conventional angiography (x-ray of the arteries using dye) may be required to identify aneurysms or AVM.

Other tests may include:
  • CBC

  • Bleeding time

  • Prothrombin/partial thromboplastin time (PT/PTT)

  • CSF (cerebrospinal fluid) examination (rarely needed)


Treatment
Treatment includes life-saving measures, relieving symptoms, repairing the cause of the bleeding, preventing complications, and starting rehabilitation as soon as possible. Recovery may occur over time as other areas of the brain take over functioning for the damaged areas.

IMMEDIATE TREATMENT
Treatment is ideally administered in an intensive care unit, where complications can immediately be detected. Medical personnel pay careful attention to breathing because sometimes persons with brain hemorrhage develop very irregular breathing patterns or even stop breathing entirely.

A person having a hemorrhagic stroke may be unable to protect the airway during coughing or sneezing because of impaired consciousness. Saliva or other secretions may go "down the wrong pipe," which is potentially serious and may cause lung problems such as aspiration pneumonia. To treat or prevent these breathing problems, a tube may need to be placed through the mouth into the trachea to start mechanical ventilation.

The blood pressure may be too high or too low in patients with brain hemorrhage. These problems need to be addressed immediately by doctors. In addition, brain bleeding may cause swelling of surrounding brain tissue, and this may require therapy with some drugs called hyperosmotic agents (mannitol, glycerol, and hypertonic saline solutions).

Bedrest may be advised to avoid increasing the pressure in the head (intracranial pressure). This may include avoiding activities such as bending over, lying flat, sudden position changes or similar activities. Stool softeners or laxatives may prevent straining during bowel movements (straining also causes increased intracranial pressure).

Medications may relieve headache but should be used with caution because they may reduce consciousness. This may produce the wrong impression that the patient is getting worse. Antihypertensive medications may be prescribed to moderately reduce high blood pressure. Medications such as phenytoin may be needed to prevent or treat seizures.

Nutrients and fluids may need to be supplemented if swallowing difficulties are present. This can be intravenous or through a feeding tube into the stomach (gastrostomy tube). Swallowing difficulties may be temporary or permanent.

Positioning, range-of-motion exercises, speech therapy, occupational therapy, physical therapy, and other interventions may be advised to prevent complications and promote maximum recovery of function.


SURGERY
Sometimes, surgery is needed to save the patient's life or to improve the chances of recovery. The type of surgery depends upon the specific cause of brain bleeding. For example, a hemorrhage due to an aneurysm requires special treatement (see aneurysm).

For other types of bleeding, removal of the hematoma may occasionally be needed, especially when bleeding occurs in the back of the brain. Some physicians are currently investigating whether the injection of a "clot buster" inside the hematoma can facilitate the removal of brain hemorrhages through needles or catheters, allowing less invasive surgery.

One common problem related to brain bleeding is hydrocephalus, which is the accumulation of a water-like fluid within the brain cavities called ventricles. To solve this problem, the fluid may need to be drained with a special procedurecalled ventriculostomy.

For AVM, different treatments are available, including surgical removal of the AVM network, radiosurgery (using ionizing radiation to reduce the size of the AVM), and intra-arterial embolization (a procedure in which glue is injected into the AVM to close the connection between arteries and veins).

LONG-TERM TREATMENT
Recovery time and the need for long-term treatment are highly variable in each case. Physical therapy may benefit some patients. Activity should be encouraged within the person's physical limitations. Alternative forms of communication such as pictures, verbal cues, demonstration or others may be needed depending on the type and extent of language deficit. Speech therapy, occupational therapy, or other interventions may increase the ability to function.

Urinary catheterization or bladder or bowel control programs may be required to control incontinence.A safe environment must be considered. Some people with stroke appear to have no awareness of their surroundings on the affected side. Others show a marked indifference or lack of judgment, which increases the need for safety precautions.

In-home care, boarding homes, adult day care, or convalescent homes may be required to provide a safe environment, control aggressive or agitated behavior, and meet physiologic needs. Behavior modification may be helpful for some patients in controlling unacceptable or dangerous behaviors. This consists of rewarding appropriate or positive behaviors and ignoring inappropriate behaviors (within the bounds of safety). Reality orientation, with repeated reinforcement of environmental and other cues, may help reduce disorientation.

Family counseling may help in coping with the changes required for home care. Visiting nurses or aides, volunteer services, homemakers, adult protective services, and other community resources may be helpful. Legal advice may also be appropriate early in the course of the disorder. Advance directives, power of attorney, and other legal actions may make it easier to make ethical decisions regarding the care of the person with hemorrhagic stroke.

Expectations (prognosis)
Stroke is the third leading cause of death in developed countries. About one-forth of people who have a stroke die as a result of the stroke or its complications, about one-half have long-term disabilities, and about one-forth recover most or all function.

Hemorrhagic stroke is less common but more frequently fatal than ischemic stroke.

Complications
  • Pressure sores

  • Permanent loss of movement or sensation of a part of the body

  • Joint contractures

  • Muscle spasticity

  • Permanent loss of cognitive or other brain functions (dementia)

  • Disruption of communication, decreased social interaction

  • Decreased ability to function or care for self

  • Decreased life span

  • Urinary and respiratory tract infections


Prevention
Most cases of hemorrhagic stroke are associated with specific risk factors, such as high blood pressure, smoking, or cocaine use. Controlling blood pressure and avoiding smoking and cocaine can reduce the chances of brain bleeding. Surgery to correct blood vessel abnormalities like aneurysms or AVMs is sometimes advisable to prevent bleeding.

          Genetic Polymorphisms of XRCC1 and Leukemia Risk: A Meta-Analysis of 19 Case-Control Studies   
Objective Three common X-ray repair cross-complementing groups 1 (XRCC1) polymorphisms, Arg399Gln, Arg194Trp, and Arg280His, have been reported to be implicated in the development of leukemia. However, previous results from different studies were inconsistent. Consequently, we performed a meta-analysis in order to accurately evaluate the association between XRCC1 Arg399Gln, Arg194Trp, and Arg280His polymorphisms and leukemia risk. Methods Through computerized searching of PubMed, ISI Web of Knowledge, Cochrane, EBSCO, and OpenGrey databases, and manually searching relevant references, a total of 19 studies with 3387 cases and 6168 controls for Arg399Gln (G>A) polymorphism, 12 studies with 2043 cases and 4550 controls for Arg194Trp (C>T), and 6 studies with 1445 cases and 1905 controls for Arg280His (G>A) were collected to perform meta-analysis and stratified analysis to explore the associations between these variants and leukemia susceptibility. Based on three genetic models, the codominant model, dominant model and recessive model, odds ratios (ORs) as well as their 95% confidence intervals (CIs) were used to evaluate the association strength between XRCC1 genotypes and leukemia risk. Results With respect to overall leukemia susceptibility, no association was detected. In stratified analyses by tumor type, Arg399Gln was associated with higher acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) risk (AA vs. GG, OR  =  1.50, 95% CI: 1.11-2.02; AA+GA vs. GG, OR  =  1.35, 95% CI: 1.02-1.78). Additionally, Arg399Gln, Arg194Trp, and Arg280His may influence the susceptibilities of some leukemia type and race populations. Conclusion This meta-analysis indicates these three polymorphisms of XRCC1 do not associate with overall leukemia risks but could be associated with the risks for some specific subgroups.

          Comparing Chemistry to Outcome: The Development of a Chemical Distance Metric, Coupled with Clustering and Hierarchal Visualization Applied to Macromolecular Crystallography   
Many bioscience fields employ high-throughput methods to screen multiple biochemical conditions. The analysis of these becomes tedious without a degree of automation. Crystallization, a rate limiting step in biological X-ray crystallography, is one of these fields. Screening of multiple potential crystallization conditions (cocktails) is the most effective method of probing a proteins phase diagram and guiding crystallization but the interpretation of results can be time-consuming. To aid this empirical approach a cocktail distance coefficient was developed to quantitatively compare macromolecule crystallization conditions and outcome. These coefficients were evaluated against an existing similarity metric developed for crystallization, the C6 metric, using both virtual crystallization screens and by comparison of two related 1,536-cocktail high-throughput crystallization screens. Hierarchical clustering was employed to visualize one of these screens and the crystallization results from an exopolyphosphatase-related protein from Bacteroides fragilis, (BfR192) overlaid on this clustering. This demonstrated a strong correlation between certain chemically related clusters and crystal lead conditions. While this analysis was not used to guide the initial crystallization optimization, it led to the re-evaluation of unexplained peaks in the electron density map of the protein and to the insertion and correct placement of sodium, potassium and phosphate atoms in the structure. With these in place, the resulting structure of the putative active site demonstrated features consistent with active sites of other phosphatases which are involved in binding the phosphoryl moieties of nucleotide triphosphates. The new distance coefficient, CDcoeff, appears to be robust in this application, and coupled with hierarchical clustering and the overlay of crystallization outcome, reveals information of biological relevance. While tested with a single example the potential applications related to crystallography appear promising and the distance coefficient, clustering, and hierarchal visualization of results undoubtedly have applications in wider fields.
          Mathematical Modeling Predicts Enhanced Growth of X-Ray Irradiated Pigmented Fungi   
Ionizing radiation is known for its cytotoxic and mutagenic properties. However, recent evidence suggests that chronic sub-lethal irradiation stimulates the growth of melanin-pigmented (melanized) fungi, supporting the hypothesis that interactions between melanin and ionizing photons generate energy useful for fungal growth, and/or regulate growth-promoting genes. There are no quantitative models of how fungal proliferation is affected by ionizing photon energy, dose rate, and presence versus absence of melanin on the same genetic background. Here we present such a model, which we test using experimental data on melanin-modulated radiation-induced proliferation enhancement in the fungus Cryptococcus neoformans, exposed to two different peak energies (150 and 320 kVp) over a wide range of X-ray dose rates. Our analysis demonstrates that radiation-induced proliferation enhancement in C. neoformans behaves as a binary “on/off” phenomenon, which is triggered by dose rates <0.002 mGy/h, and stays in the “on” position. A competing dose rate-dependent growth inhibition becomes apparent at dose rates >5000 mGy/h. Proliferation enhancement of irradiated cells compared with unirradiated controls occurs at both X-ray peak energies, but its magnitude is modulated by X-ray peak energy and cell melanization. At dose rates <5000 mGy/h, both melanized and non-melanized cells exposed to 150 kVp X-rays, and non-melanized cells exposed to 320 kVp X-rays, all exhibit the same proliferation enhancement: on average, chronic irradiation stimulates each founder cell to produce 100 (95% CI: 83, 116) extra descendants over 48 hours. Interactions between melanin and 320 kVp X-rays result in a significant (2-tailed p-value = 4.8×10−5) additional increase in the number of radiation-induced descendants per founder cell: by 55 (95% CI: 29, 81). These results show that both melanin-dependent and melanin-independent mechanisms are involved in radiation-induced fungal growth enhancement, and implicate direct and/or indirect interactions of melanin with high energy ionizing photons as an important pro-proliferative factor.
          Household Contact Screening and Yield of Tuberculosis Cases—A Clinic Based Study in Chennai, South India   
Background: Contact investigation is an active case finding strategy to increase detection of Tuberculosis (TB) and a key component of TB control programs. The household contacts are at a higher risk of exposure than members of the general population. The information on the value and yield of household contact screening and the approaches used in high incidence settings like India is limited. Objective: To evaluate the yield of active case finding in household contacts of newly diagnosed smear positive TB patients and the factors associated with increased yield. Method: Retrospective record review of the household contacts of newly diagnosed sputum smear positive patients (index case) enrolled in a clinical trial at National Institute of Research in Tuberculosis, Chennai during the period 2007–2014. A sequential screening algorithm with chest x-ray followed by symptom screen was employed to identify presumptive TB patients. Results: 643 household contacts of 280 index TB patients were identified out of which 544 (85%) consented for screening. 71/544 (13%) patients had an abnormal chest radiograph and out of them 70% were symptomatic. A total of 29/544 (5.3%) contacts were found to have TB among whom 23/29 (79%) were sputum smear positive. The number needed to screen (NNS) to identify a new TB case among all household contacts was 19 and among those with an abnormal CXR was 02. Age group > 44 years, male gender and siblings of the index case was associated with abnormal chest radiograph whereas age group between 15–44 was significantly associated with developing TB disease among household contacts. Conclusion: Active screening among household contacts is an effective way to improve TB case detection. The yield for new TB cases among contacts with abnormal x-ray was high in this study and the use of Chest X-rays in combination with symptom screen is recommended.

          I-TASSER-MR: automated molecular replacement for distant-homology proteins using iterative fragment assembly and progressive sequence truncation   
Abstract
Molecular replacement (MR) is one of the most common techniques used for solving the phase problem in X-ray crystal diffraction. The success rate of MR however drops quickly when the sequence identity between query and templates is reduced, while the I-TASSER-MR server is designed to solve the phase problem for proteins that lack close homologous templates. Starting from a sequence, it first generates full-length models using I-TASSER by iterative structural fragment reassembly. A progressive sequence truncation procedure is then used for editing the models based on local variations of the structural assembly simulations. Next, the edited models are submitted to MR-REX to search for optimal placements in the crystal unit-cells through replica-exchange Monte Carlo simulations, with the phasing results used by CNS for final atomic model refinement and selection. The I-TASSER-MR algorithm was tested in large-scale benchmark datasets and solved 36% more targets compared to using the best threading templates. The server takes primary sequence and raw crystal diffraction data as input, with output containing annotated phase information and refined structure models. It also allows users to choose between different methods for setting B-factors and the number of models used for phasing. The online server is freely available at http://zhanglab.ccmb.med.umich.edu/I-TASSER-MR.

          JUST IN: IT IS OFFICIAL!!! APC Finally Bows To Fayose's Pressure, Releases Buhari UK Medical Report And Return Date   
Sponsored Links

The All Progressives Congress APC, has on Friday, released the current health status of ailing President, Muhammadu Buhari.
The National Chairman of the party, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, made the disclosure in Abuja, during an interactive session with Newsmen.
The reaction came on the heels of the recent claims by the Executive Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, that Buhari is on life support, in a United Kingdom, UK, hospital.
While disclosing Buhari’s health status, Oyegun said: “We are glad to inform you that President Muhammadu Buhari is recovering in a very robust manner.
“We hope he takes it easy and when he comes back; I have no doubt at all that we will have a new and active period of activities.’’
He however, said only the President’s Doctors abroad could decide when he would be fit to return to the country.

The National Chairman nonetheless, refused to respond to the Fayose’s comment, saying he would do that at an appropriate time.
“If I respond, I will be dignifying him.
“At the appropriate time, people will answer him; at the appropriate level; at the appropriate time.
“He is in a different world altogether.’’
According to him, the party’s leadership has confidence in Buhari.
He added that, the meeting x-rayed the nation’s ongoing agitation for its restructuring, and inciting statements emanating from different parts of the country.
Odigie-Oyegun stressed that such inciting statements are not good “for the nation’s health, and have to be stopped’’.
According to him, the party maintains its earlier position on the restructuring of the country, as clearly stated in its manifesto.
He added that, the APC leadership was ready to listen to whatever grievances any group in the country might have.

          Chapter Seven   



Quinn clamped a hand over Merry's mouth before he could utter a word, and he started in his seat. Not that he could actually say anything because he was stunned speechless and unable to form a single complete thought. Quinn more than liked him. Him. Shy, spineless, awkward, plain, nerdy, pathetic Merry the Fairy. Him! The thought was overwhelming and Merry felt all squeegee inside. It was if his guts had turned to mush. Now he understood what people meant when they said don't get all mushy on me. He was in seriously mushy condition.

"Say naught aloud, Merry, lest me Queen hear ye."

Quinn's seriousness and intense emerald gaze scared him a little, but he nodded his assent, and Quinn slowly removed his hand. "I-I won't say anything."

Quinn nodded. "Nary a word on the air."

He nodded again. "This Queen, she can, like, she can hear what I say?"

"Aye, she can."

Quinn was dead serious, and it scared him some more. "Okay. Um, can I ask some questions?"

Quinn's brow knitted then smoothed. "To answer ye first question, I be carin' for ye since I begin me assignment. I find ye that first day under a tree late at night in the park. Ye be bleedin' bad. I see it meself, I did."

Merry tried to remember when he'd last been in the park at night. Sometimes he went there in the middle of the night if he’d had a particularly bad day with Rick, and then sometimes if things got rough when his dad was drunk. The painful memory of that night drifted back to him. That had been a particularly bad day. And night. Rick had slammed his head into a toilet bowl and his forehead split open. Luckily, some jock had entered the bathroom in time to stop Rick from slamming his head again. The principal had been furious, as if, somehow, it had been his fault that his head met a toilet bowl and split open. Then it was totally freakin’ embarrassing when the school called an ambulance to take him to the hospital. All he had needed was ten stitches and an x-ray. His dad came home drunk again and went ballistic about the hospital bill. Merry quickly explained that the school had taken care of it because it happened on school property, but it hadn’t done any good. His dad had hit him hard enough to break open the stitches. Blood had streamed down his face as he ran from the house. He didn't really remember a whole lot after that, except that the blood felt warm in the cool autumn air as he ran.

It seemed like it had happened light years ago when, in fact, it had happened only two months ago, on the first day of school. He always shoved away memories that were too painful to process. Some things could happen yesterday, but if they were too hard, too painful, he locked them away in the library of his mind. He'd learned long ago to compartmentalize things, to carefully sift through the thoughts and memories that were painful and not. Things that were painful went into this box or that box and were placed on a shelf in his mind. Things that he couldn't figure out went into another box. And things that he never wanted to remember, well, he didn't store those at all. He threw those away. If they came back and tried to haunt the library in his mind, he didn’t care. He kept them out by sheer force of will. He had to, or he wouldn’t be able to function like anything even remotely close to a human being.

"Aye, ye recall. Rick be an arse, and ye da' not be better.

Merry absently rubbed at the scar on his forehead. "That was the first day of school." Surprisingly, his voice was steady. “How come I didn’t see you?”

“Ye did, ye simply not recall.”

No, if he’d seen Quinn, he would have remembered him.

Quinn smiled. “Who do ye think got ye back to the hospital to mend ye stitches?”

It was Merry’s turn to frown. He remembered someone walking him to the hospital, though he couldn’t remember being there or getting home after that.

"Aye, me Merry, ye recall. Be time we go to class. I release time now."

Merry hadn't remembered that the first bell had clanged overhead only moments ago. He stood and his side rudely reminded him that Rick had kicked him in the ribs. He breathed through the pain, picked up their lunch trays, and carried them to the trashcan. He dumped their trash, and Quinn took the trays from him and stacked them atop a nearby cart.

Quinn put an arm around him. "Come, me Merry. We get ye to class."

Merry couldn’t help but to look up at Quinn in wonder as they walked. He had so many questions. Questions like why no one mocked them as they walked down the hall, for starters. Should he put an arm around Quinn's waist? He wanted to, but, as usual, he didn’t have the courage. Most important of all, did this mean that Quinn was—he could hardly think the words, let alone say them aloud—his boyfriend?

“Quinn?” he whispered.

“Aye?”

“Are we invisible right now?”

“Nay.”

“Then why isn’t everyone freaking out because you have your arm around me?”

“I do not wish it.”

“So, you can wish people not to be assholes?”

“Lest they essence be ill set from the start. Take Rick, by way of me example. ‘Is cruelty be like a fuel for ‘im, and I cannot change ‘is thinking.”
~*~

They entered the locker room to find Rick standing in front of Merry’s locker, insane with rage, and snorting like a bull ready to stampede. His ugly grey ears stood at attention, and a long, thick tail whipped the air behind him.

Merry stopped dead in his tracks as every alarm bell went off in his head. He shifted on his feet, fighting to stifle the flight response that had become a permanent fixture in him over the past three years. Quinn one-arm hugged him before his arm slipped from his shoulders. He moved down the aisle toward Rick, his tall, lithe frame graceful with each step. Merry wanted to reach for him, to stop him from going any closer, to tell him it wasn’t safe.

Quinn stood directly in front of Rick, no more than an arm’s length away. His anger hummed softly up Merry’s spine, as if they were suddenly, magically connected, and he knew only extraordinary self-control kept Quinn from tearing Rick apart. The muscles in his back flexed and twitched beneath his white T-shirt, and told Merry he was fighting hard to keep from losing his temper and changing into his other form.

“What the hell are you?” Rick growled.

“Ye needn’t be concerned with what I be. Ye need be concerned with what ye be.”

“Undo it,” Rick growled through clenched teeth.

Quinn shook his head slowly. “Nay, Rick Adams. Jammy ye be that be the only thing I done to ye. Ye deserve far, far worse, cur that ye be.”

“Undo it! Now! Or I’ll fuckin’ kill you!”

Quinn’s hand was suddenly up in front of Rick’s face, his fingers spread wide. It slowly morphed into the clawed hand of the beast he’d become in the cafeteria. “Reel yer neck in, Rick Adams. Ye not be makin’ anyone dead.”

He flexed claws at Rick and, for the first time ever, Merry saw fear flicker in Rick’s eyes.

“Now go on. Hump off afore I pan ye out again. And keep ye a fair distance from Merry, lest ye be pushin’ up daisies afore ye time.”

Quinn turned to head back to Merry, and Rick made the mistake of grabbing his shoulder and pulling back for a punch.

Quinn’s clawed hand shot out and met with Rick’s chunky chest. He flew twenty feet backward down the aisle, his back hitting the wall with enough force to crack the tiles around him.

Quinn advanced on him, his anger large on the air, and Merry was now very afraid Quinn would do something irreversible. He ran down the aisle after Quinn and reached him just as he grabbed the front of Rick’s shirt.

“Quinn, wait! Don’t!”

Pog mo thoin! Ye dare lay a hand on Merry or me again and ye get a right bollixing from me. Ye be warned for the last time, Rick.” Quinn shoved a dazed Rick against the wall one last time before turning back to Merry and guiding him back down the aisle.

Everyone around them hadn’t seen or heard a thing as they finished dressing and headed out of the locker room.

“Get ye clothes on, Merry.”

Merry could still feel Quinn’s anger humming up his spine as he opened his locker door and began to undress. Quinn undressed quickly, and Merry’s body wasted no time in reacting. He quickly turned his back to Quinn, and willed his unruly dick down. Think of something, anything else. “Pog-ma-ho-en? Is that like a spell or something?”

“It mean kiss me arse. The boy be nothin’ more than a bleedin’ spleen with a face like a back of a bus, and he need to stop he tomfoolery afore he get hurt.”

Merry slipped his gym tennis shoes on. “Um, okay.” Quinn slammed his locker door and Merry jumped.

“Sorry, Merry. Didn’t mean to frighten ye. C’mon, now.” Quinn held a hand out to him.

Merry looked at the hand that had only moments ago been the clawed hand of a monster. “Y-you want me to hold your hand?”

Quinn wagged his hand. “C’mon.”

It looked normal, and he didn’t see any fur, or scales, or claws, or boils, or warts, or anything else his imagination could think of. Merry took it tentatively. Quinn wrapped his soft, warm hand around Merry's, and led him from the locker room.

~*~

Quinn had asked Merry to wait for him at his locker after school. He shifted nervously from foot to foot, worried Rick or one of his goons would show up and kick the crap out of him. Some guy who Merry didn’t know walked by, shoved his shoulder, and left a loud “faggot” to ring on the air in his wake. Merry turned into his locker and tried to make himself small. Which wasn’t hard. He was small. And scrawny.

“I be on me way, Meriadoc,” came a whisper in his mind. He nearly jumped out of his skin. How did Quinn do stuff like that? Relief flooded him when Quinn rounded the corner and headed straight for him. With a girl in tow. The same girl who kissed his lips. Great.

“Merry, this be Emily. Emily, this be Merry.”

Her face became a contorted mask of disgust. “Him? That’s who you have to walk home?”

“Don’t have to, lass. I choose to,” Quinn said easily.

She turned her harsh glare back to Quinn. “But he’s gay!

She said it with such overt revulsion that Merry cringed, and tried to melt into the lockers behind him.

“Aye, he be.”

Understanding filled her eyes and she gaped at him. “Ohmygod! You’re a fairy!”

“Aye, I be.”

“I kissed you!” she huffed.

“Aye, lass, ye did.”

“And you didn’t say anything!” she puffed.

“I did not.”

She slapped him, spun on a heel, and walked away.

“Whoa.” Merry watched her walk away then turned back to Quinn. “Are you all right?”

Quinn rubbed his cheek. “Aye. Seems she be a little short on she threshold.”

“Meaning?”

“Poor in she tolerance.”

Merry rolled is eyes. Who wasn’t when it came to anything Merry the Fairy?

“Ye be ready to go?”

“Yeah. Have you seen Rick?” Merry asked as they headed to the front doors of the school.

“Nay. Why ye ask?”

Merry did his usual front of the school recon through the window next to the door. “I like to know where he is before I leave school.”

“No matter where he be.” Quinn opened the door for him.

Merry stepped outside with trepidation and turned back just as Quinn put an arm around him. “Yeah, it does.”

Quinn pulled him in and kissed the side of his head. “I keep watch for ye, me wee dote.”

“Dote?”

Quinn shrugged. “Object of me fondness.”

Merry couldn’t help it. He grinned from ear to ear as he walked home feeling cared for and unafraid for the first time in more than three years.

          FOOD PROCESSING AND PRESERVATION   


Throughout the history of mankind science has searched into the realms of the unknown. Along with it bringing new discoveries, allowing for our lives to become healthier, more efficient, safer, and at the same time, possibly more dangerous. Among the forces driving scientists into these many experiments, is the desire to preserve the one fuel that keeps our lives going; FOOD.

As early as the beginning of the 19th century, major breakthroughs in food preservation had begun. Soldiers and seamen, fighting in Napoleons army were living off of salt-preserved meats. These poorly cured foods provided minimal nutritional value, and frequent outbreaks of scurvy were developing. It was Napoleon who began the search for a better mechanism of food preservation, and it was he who offered 12,000-franc pieces to the person who devised a safe and dependable food-preservation process.

The winner was a French chemist named Nicolas Appert. He observed that food heated in sealed containers was preserved as long as the container remained unopened or the seal did not leak. This became the turning point in food preservation history. Fifty years following the discovery by Nicolas Appert, another breakthrough had developed. Another Frenchman, named Louis Pasteur, noted the relationship between microorganisms and food spoilage. This breakthrough increased the dependability of the food canning process. As the years passed new techniques assuring food preservation would come and go, opening new doors to further research.

FOOD PROCESSING 

Farmers grow fruits and vegetables and fatten livestock. The fruits and vegetables are harvested, and the livestock is slaughtered for food. What happens between the time food leaves the farm and the time it is eaten at the table? Like all living things, the plants and animals that become food contain tiny organisms called microorganisms. Living, healthy plants and animals automatically control most of these microorganisms. But when the plants and animals are killed, the organisms yeast, mold, and bacteria begin to multiply, causing the food to lose flavor and change in color and texture. Just as important, food loses the nutrients that are necessary to build and replenish human bodies. All these changes in the food are what people refer to as food spoilage. To keep the food from spoiling, usually in only a few days, it is preserved. Many kinds of agents are potentially destructive to the healthful characteristics of fresh foods. Microorganisms, such as bacteria and fungi, rapidly spoil food. Enzymes which are present in all raw food, promote degradation and chemical changes affecting especially texture and flavor. Atmospheric oxygen may react with food constituents, causing rancidity or color changes. Equally as harmful are infestations by insects and rodents, which account for tremendous losses in food stocks. There is no single method of food preservation that provides protection against all hazards for an unlimited period of time. Canned food stored in Antarctica near the South Pole, for example, remained edible after 50 years of storage, but such long-term preservation cannot be duplicated in the hot climate of the Tropics.

Raw fruits and vegetables and uncooked meat are preserved by cold storage or refrigeration. The cold temperature inside the cold-storage compartment or refrigerator slows down the microorganisms and delays deterioration. But cold storage and refrigeration will preserve raw foods for a few weeks at most. If foods are to be preserved for longer periods, they must undergo special treatments such as freezing or heating. The science of preserving foods for more than a few days is called food processing.

Human beings have always taken some measures to preserve food. Ancient people learned to leave meat and fruits and vegetables in the sun and wind to remove moisture. Since microorganisms need water to grow, drying the food slows the rate at which it spoils. Today food processors provide a diet richer and more varied than ever before by using six major methods. They are canning, drying or dehydration, freezing, freeze-drying, fermentation or pickling, and irradiation.

Canning 

The process of canning is sometimes called sterilization because the heat treatment of the food eliminates all microorganisms that can spoil the food and those that are harmful to humans, including directly pathogenic bacteria and those that produce lethal toxins. Most commercial canning operations are based on the principle that bacteria destruction increases tenfold for each 10° C increase in temperature. Food exposed to high temperatures for only minutes or seconds retains more of its natural flavor. In the Flash 18 process, a continuous system, the food is flash-sterilized in a pressurized chamber to prevent the superheated food from boiling while it is placed in containers. Further sterilizing is not required.

Freezing 

Although prehistoric humans stored meat in ice caves, the food-freezing industry is more recent in origin than the canning industry. The freezing process was used commercially for the first time in 1842, but large-scale food preservation by freezing began in the late 19th century with the advent of mechanical refrigeration.

Freezing preserves food by preventing microorganisms from multiplying. Because the process does not kill all types of bacteria, however, those that survive reanimate in thawing food and often grow more rapidly than before freezing. Enzymes in the frozen state remain active, although at a reduced rate. Vegetables are blanched or heated in preparation for freezing to ensure enzyme inactivity and thus to avoid degradation of flavor. Blanching has also been proposed for fish, in order to kill cold-adapted bacteria on their outer surface. In the freezing of meats various methods are used depending on the type of meat and the cut. Pork is frozen soon after butchering, but beef is hung in a cooler for several days to tenderize the meat before freezing.

Frozen foods have the advantage of resembling the fresh product more closely than the same food preserved by other techniques. Frozen foods also undergo some changes, however. Freezing causes the water in food to expand and tends to disrupt the cell structure by forming ice crystals. In quick-freezing the ice crystals are smaller, producing less cell damage than in the slowly frozen product. The quality of the product, however, may depend more on the rapidity with which the food is prepared and stored in the freezer than on the rate at which it is frozen. Some solid foods that are frozen slowly, such as fish, may, upon thawing, show a loss of liquid called drip; some liquid foods that are frozen slowly, such as egg yolk, may become coagulated. Because of the high cost of refrigeration, frozen food is comparatively expensive to produce and distribute. High quality is a required feature of frozen food to justify the added cost in the market.This method of preservation is the one most widely used for a great variety of foods.

Drying and Dehydration 

Although both these terms are applied to the removal of water from food, to the food technologist drying refers to drying by natural means, such as spreading fruit on racks in the sun, and dehydration designates drying by artificial means, such as a blast of hot air. In freeze-drying a high vacuum is maintained in a special cabinet containing frozen food until most of the moisture has sublimed. Removal of water offers excellent protection against the most common causes of food spoilage. Microorganisms cannot grow in a water-free environment, enzyme activity is absent, and most chemical reactions are greatly retarded. This last characteristic makes dehydration preferable to canning if the product is to be stored at a high temperature. In order to achieve such protection, practically all the water must be removed. The food then must be packaged in a moisture-proof container to prevent it from absorbing water from the air.

Vegetables, fruits, meat, fish, and some other foods, the moisture content of which averages as high as 80 percent, may be dried to one-fifth of the original weight and about one-half of the original volume. The disadvantages of this method of preservation include the time and labor involved in rehydrating the food before eating. Further because it absorbs only about two-thirds of its original water content, the dried product tends to have a texture that is tough and chewy.

Drying was used by prehistoric humans to preserve many foods. Large quantities of fruits such as figs have been dried from ancient times to the present day. In the case of meat and fish, other preservation methods, such as smoking or salting, which yielded a palatable product, were generally preferred. Commercial dehydration of vegetables was initiated in the United States during the American Civil War but, as a result of the poor quality of the product, the industry declined sharply after the war. This cycle was repeated with subsequent wars, but after World War II the dehydration industry thrived. This industry is confined largely to the production of a few dried foods, however, such as milk, soup, eggs, yeast, and powdered coffee, which are particularly suited to the dehydration method. Present-day dehydration techniques include the application of a stream of warm air to vegetables. Protein foods such as meat are of good quality only if freeze-dried. Liquid food is dehydrated usually by spraying it as fine droplets into a chamber of hot air, or occasionally by pouring it over a drum internally heated by steam.

Freeze-drying 

A processing method that uses a combination of freezing and dehydration is called freeze-drying. Foods that already have been frozen are placed in a vacuum-tight enclosure and dehydrated under vacuum conditions with careful application of heat. Normally ice melts and becomes water when heat is applied. If more heat is applied, it turns to steam. But in freeze-drying, the ice turns directly to vapor, and there is little chance that microorganisms will grow.

Freeze-dried foods, like those that are dehydrated, are light and require little space for storage and transportation. They do not need to be refrigerated, but they must be reconstituted with water before they are ready to consume.

Irradiation 

As early as 1895, a major breakthrough in the world of science had arisen; the discovery of the X-ray by German physicist Wilhelm von Roetengen. This technological advancement, along with the soon to be discovered concept of radioactivity by French physicist Antoine Henri Becquerel, became the focus of attention for many scientifically based studies. Of most importance, to the field of food preservation, these two discoveries began the now controversial process of food irradiation.

Food irradiation employs an energy form termed ionizing radiation. In short, this process exposes food particles to alpha, beta and/or gamma rays. The rays cause whatever material they strike to produce electrically charged particles called ions. Ionizing radiation provides many attributes to treating foods. It has the ability to penetrate deeply into a food interacting with its atoms and molecules, and causing some chemical and biological effects that could possibly decrease its rate of decay. It also has the ability to sanitize foods by destroying contaminants such as bacteria, yeasts, molds, parasites and insects.Irradiation delays ripening of fruits and vegetables; inhibits sprouting in bulbs and tubers; disinfests grain, cereal products, fresh and dried fruits, and vegetables of insects; and destroys bacteria in fresh meats. The irradiation of fresh fruits and vegetables, herbs and spices, and pork was approved in 1986. In 1990 the FDA approved irradiation of poultry to control salmonella and other disease-causing microorganisms. Irradiated foods were used by U.S. astronauts and by Soviet cosmonauts. Public concern over the safety of irradiation, however, has limited its full-scale use. It is still off to a slow start, with only one food irradiation plant open in Mulberry, Florida, but it is seemingly catching the eyes of the producers and the consumers throughout the world.

Miscellaneous Methods 

Other methods or a combination of methods may be used to preserve foods. Salting of fish and pork has long been practiced, using either dry salt or brine. Salt enters the tissue and, in effect binds the water, thus inhibiting the bacteria that cause spoilage. Another widely used method is smoking, which frequently is applied to preserve fish, ham, and sausage. The smoke is obtained by burning hickory or a similar wood under low draft. In this case some preservative action is provided by such chemicals in the smoke as formaldehyde and creosote, and by the dehydration that occurs in the smokehouse. Smoking usually is intended to flavor the product as well as to preserve it.

Sugar, a major ingredient of jams and jellies, is another preservative agent. For effective preservation the total sugar content should make up at least 65 percent of the weight of the final product. Sugar, which acts in much the same way as salt, inhibits bacterial growth after the product has been heated. Because of its high acidity, vinegar (acetic acid) acts as a preservative. Fermentation caused by certain bacteria, which produce lactic acid, is the basis of preservation in sauerkraut and fermented sausage. Sodium benzoate, restricted to concentrations of not more than 0.1 percent, is used in fruit products to protect against yeasts and molds. Sulfur dioxide, another chemical preservative permitted in most states, helps to retain the color of dehydrated foods. Calcium propionate may be added to baked goods to inhibit mold.

Packaging 

The packaging of processed foods is just as important as the process itself. If foods are not packaged in containers that protect them from air and moisture, they are subject to spoilage. Packaging materials must therefore be strong enough to withstand the heat and cold of processing and the wear and tear of handling and transportation.

From the time the canning process was developed in the early 19th century until the beginning of the 20th century, cans and glass containers were the only packages used. The first cans were crude containers having a hole in the top through which the food was inserted. The holes were then sealed with hot metal. All cans were made by hand from sheets of metal cut to specific sizes. In about 1900 the sanitary can was invented. In this process, machines form cans with airtight seams. A processor buys cans with one end open and seals them after filling. Some cans are made of steel coated with tin and are often glazed on the inside to prevent discoloration. Some are made of aluminum.

Frozen foods are packaged in containers made of layers of fiberboard and plastic or of strong plastic called polyethylene. Freeze-dried and dehydrated foods are packed in glass, fiberboard, or cans.

Research 

The research activities of processed food scientists are numerous and varied. New packaging materials, the nutritional content of processed foods, new processing techniques, more efficient use of energy and water, the habits and desires of today's consumer, more efficient equipment, and transportation and warehousing innovations are some of the subjects being studied. The challenge of the food researcher is to discover better and more efficient ways to process, transport, and store food. Processed foods have changed the world. In developed countries they are part of almost everyone's diet. The United States, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Portugal, Spain, and the United Kingdom all produce large quantities of processed foods, which they sell domestically and abroad. In the United States in the early 1980s, annual production of fruit was 1.8 billion kilograms canned, 1.4 billion kilograms frozen, and 1.1 billion kilograms in fruit juice; production of vegetables was 1.4 billion kilograms canned and 3.2 billion kilograms frozen.

From the modest canning industries in 1813 to the sophisticated food processing plants of today, food processors have provided the world with more healthful diets, food combinations never before possible, and a convenience unimagined 200 years ago. We as consumers can only imagine what further achievements will be made in the field of food preservation. But one thing is for certain; it is all for the general good of mankind...to reduce starvation levels globally and insure the availability of nutritive foods to all. It is through this way that man survives...and fits in Darwin's hypothesis of the survival of the fittest. For it is only the fit who will prevail in the end.

          EXHIBITION ELISA VAN JOOLEN AT PATTA & ZEEDIJK 60   

Designer/researcher Elisa van Joolen is exhibiting her latest series of apparel entitled One-to-One (R. Mariz) at Patta and Zeedijk 60. For this edition, Joolen has worked with four Dutch streetwear brands: Patta, Bonne Suits, On Tour and By Parra. The four brands offered a selection of apparel at Joolen's disposal, which she utilized as printing tools. A clothing piece applied with ink is used a "stamp" and pressed onto another piece of clothing, creating one original piece with a literal copy of another, resulting in a chain of uniquely printed items.

The print results are very sharp, offering a new perspective on the original, as well as revealing various details such as seams, fabric structure and size of the article.

With this series, Joolen offers a refreshing point of view regarding clothing and brand identity: Where does it start or end? The reworked pieces display less of a brand image and more of an objective representation of clothing - similar to an x-ray scan; a very precise registration.

Elisa van Joolen's One-to-One (R. Mariz) is now on view at Patta and Zeedijk 60 until this Sunday July 2.

.
Lecture for Every One não é um espetáculo, é uma intrusão amigável, um vírus benigno que se propaga nas veias da cidade. Durante uma semana, entre 7 e 14 de dezembro, Sarah Vanhee e Anabela Almeida juntar-se-ão a reuniões e assembleias em vários contextos ― uma conferência num hotel de luxo, uma assembleia municipal, uma reunião do sindicato, a reunião de equipa de uma multinacional, um ensaio de um coro de igreja ― para dar uma pequena palestra. Apenas uma pessoa sabe da sua visita, para todos os outros a sua gentil intromissão é uma surpresa. No seu discurso, Sarah Vanhee procura abordar os cidadãos como indivíduos e como coletivo, evitando a linguagem impessoal da lei, da política, da comunicação social e da publicidade. “Lecture for Every One é um conjunto híbrido de histórias e reflexões políticas com um impulso performativo. No texto, abordo algumas das minhas preocupações acerca da nossa convivência e da condição do comum. Tento repensar uma ética do comum e da partilha, propondo novas ficções, diferentes das que predominam na sociedade ocidental contemporânea.” No último dia da sua estadia, Sarah Vanhee fará uma apresentação do projeto e uma visita guiada ao seu percurso inusitado por pequenas e grandes reuniões na cidade de Lisboa.

          "Dark Side of the Museum" Found an Ending   
I think Dark Side of the Museum is finished. I need to have the patience now to let it sit and then reread it. I started this novel over a year ago, although the idea had been percolating longer than that. I don't know how to categorize it other than a good read (I hope). It has a pinch of paranormal and a dash of time travel. The result seems to me deliciously outrageous. The set up is pretty simple and engaging. Engaging, well that's for you to judge. Here's the first chapter. I'm looking for beta readers if anyone is interested.

CHAPTER ONE
Edgar Makes a Discovery and Gets Fired.

I was on my way to report the extraordinary X-ray finding to the chief conservator when I encountered her in the hallway waddling like a penguin toward me in her daily dress of black pants, white blouse, black vest. Stella said, "Ah, Edgar, we need to talk."

I could have told her about the discovery as we walked back to the windowless bowels of the art museum where 93 percent of the collection was stored, a vast majority of which would never been seen by any visitor. I wondered what we NEEDED to talk about. I haven't done anything wrong. I'm polite to the curators. I get on well with them, even Beatrice. Just saying her name is like pulling a pin from a grenade and looking at the thing in your hand. And I get along well with my fellow conservators, except for Nina, that little bitch in the painting department. I glanced sideways at my boss, but her face showed only the slight smile she always wore that kept you guessing. Is she pleased or deeply upset? Her hair, probably dyed black, hung straight to the top of her shoulders and always looked as if grease needed to be shampooed vigorously from its sticky strands.

I kept quiet, sitting in front of her desk as she settled into her own chair adjusting the multiple knobs it offered to ergonomically match her short, dough-girl frame.

"We're going to have to let you go," Stella said, the slight smile showing no uneasiness with having to impart this piece of news. "The cutbacks, you know. Layoffs affecting all departments even, I hear, one of the curators. Full month's notice. Irma in HR will give you the details on your severance package, how to file for unemployment, COBRA insurance and all that. With your credentials, I'm sure you'll find something else soon. You're young. How's the Gould coming along?"

"Fine, fine. X-rays almost all done. Well, thanks."

And I left asking myself: Why me? I'm the only furniture conservator they have. And having just turned thirty-five I didn't feel young. Dejection started to slump my shoulders, but remembering what waited for me back in the lab made my step more brisk. I retrieved the one X-ray that had so excited me, putting it in my briefcase before anyone else could see it.

At 5 o'clock I walked to security where I opened the briefcase for the guard to peer inside. The X-ray elicited no interest. Work being taken home. At my apartment in the old brownstone near the museum, I stuck the film under the light table to examine the anomaly again.

A year ago, the Museum had acquired a Nathaniel Gould chest-on-chest. The massive, though elegant, wooden thing now sat in the lab for examination, cleaning, and, if needed, restoration. The 91-inch tall piece—when the top part was put on the bottom part—now sat in its two separate sections. I had started my work by X-raying the piece so I might see any hidden cracks, inspect joints, and espy the presence of nails.

Its top featured three finials—knob-like extension spires that began as rectangles of wood sitting on which was a round piece that became a kind of upside down toy top. The X-ray of the right finial seemed to show a box-like object within its rectangular base. Some kind of metal was blocking the view so I had headed to tell the news to Stella.

Now, I'll find out for myself—and alone—what's inside that cube of wood.

(Letter from Vic in the Philippines to younger brother Paul in Berkeley, California. Photo shows war damaged pier in Manila.)

Monday evening,

Dear Paul,

Yes, I'm still here at Camp La Croix. According to rumour our sailing date has been changed to something like the first of November. Personally, I'll discount the whole works, and only when I'm aboard ship will I actually believe we're at last headed for home.

Yesterday I was in Manila on pass. Went over to Nick Julian's unit and learned he'd departed the day before upon very short notice. Understand he went to the 29th Replacement Depot prior to embarkation for the States. He's getting out on that over 35 yrs. and 2 yrs. service deal.

Incidentally, here in the div. we've quite a few guys who're eligible for same and many other men with high-points (80,85,90 & 95) but they're getting screwed in that they'll have to wait and go home with the div. The GHQ, Service Command, and other base and rear echelon units get all the breaks.

Not that Nick doesn't deserve it 'cause he's not in such good shape. In N.G. he had a spinal injury lifting something heavy and said x-rays showed one of his vertebrae to be broken. However, even tho he's a medic in a hospital detachment they never did much for him.

While in Manila I began to feel quite bad shortly after noon. Because there's practically no place to sit down in town for even a short break without parting with a fair part of a month's pay, I went into one of the very few remaining theatres. That is, I first sweated out a two-block-long ticket line.

Upon entering the theatre proper I stood for nearly an hr. awaiting a seat. When I finally parked my rear I was in poor condition and felt so damn punk that I sat there thru 2 1/2 shows resting.

A G.I. next to me said his gang were driving back up to Angeles so I decided to ride along for 25 miles and then get off where the two main hi-ways split. Could've waited until 11:PM 'til my truck headed back but I couldn't stand the misery of waiting around so I took off about 7:30. In all it took three rides to get into camp which is a good 65 miles. Checked into the aid station, had temp. taken, got quinine, and hit the sack about 10:30.

Well today's blood smear came back positive on the malarial check, but it didn't surprise me 'cause I knew all along what it was. After five knock-downs from the stuff I should damn well know all the symptoms. Anyhow, I'm on quarters now getting plenty of quinine which kinda knocks one out.

Our generator is on the blink hence no lights for the battery to-nite. Am writing by candlelight and'll retire early 'cause I've a head-ache and think the fever is coming back. Believe the div. doesn't want to evacuated anyone for hospitalization unless in an emergency because we're so close to shipping out, and they probably figure a guy'd rather lay around on quarters than leave the outfit and take the chance of missing the boat with the rest of the guys. Well, so far this recurrent attack has been damn mild as compared to my last when we were making the push up north last July.

Just got word that we're to be issued "Eisenhower" blouses and overcoats to-night so I'll have to get in the formation in a short while. Bet the fits and material will be as sloppy as ever. Recently we received a set of O.D.s which were crummy as hell and general misfits. We've more clothes now than we need, but they continue issuing stuff probably thinking we'll all die of influenza, pneumonia, etc. the first day in a cool climate. That gag is that we've only one back to stuff it into and we carry that around with us. Boy! you should try to lift mine up as it's loaded now.

The line is still very long and I certainly don't want to stand around sweating it out. Maybe I'll wait till morning to draw my woolens. These new guys we received are seemingly all chow-hounds and "come-firsts" 'cause every time I see a formation awaiting something the majority in line and always the head of same will be composed of these new guys. Guess we've been over too long to get excited about anything the Army does or gives out.

Say, Paul, I still haven't come to any definite conclusions regarding post-war plans. Some fellows here are positively going to school, but either they've already had some such or else they were just out of high school and may've been planning to enter some college when they entered service. Practically all of them haven't held a steady job in civilian life and don't believe they'll have much of a chance to get one for several years.

I only completed on of my three A.F.I. correspondence courses and don't think I can finish the whole thing up to credit the necessary credits before becoming a civilian. As things are now, I'll be the only son at home and think I should stick around for awhile at least. Do you plan to remain in Calif. indefinitely? Do you have any job in view out there for the future? Say, don't answer now but let me know later. I'll write again later this wk.

Your brother,
Vic.

P.S. - I'm enclosing three old prints that I want you to send on. Just got them from another fellow in the section when we traded some pics.
          Neolithic Tomb Unearthed in England   

England Neolithic BarrowSILSDEN, ENGLAND—Archaeologists digging at a future construction site in northern England have unearthed the remains of a large collective burial monument known as a barrow, reports Keighley Online. Measuring around 100 feet wide, the barrow consists of two ditches and was in use around 5,000 to 4,500 years ago, during the late Neolithic and early Bronze Age. At the center of the site, the team unearthed an incised funerary urn containing cremated remains, likely the barrow's primary burial. The team plans to X-ray the urn before removing its contents. Other finds included pottery, stone tools, and another cremated burial dating to the early Bronze Age. To read in-depth about this period in British prehistory, go to “Neolithic Europe's Remote Heart.”


          Comment on Why Aren’t My Child’s Baby Teeth Falling Out? by Kristina   
Hello, I'm 12 years old, turning 13 in the winter, but have only lost 8 teeth. (8 front teeth) I have recently switched dentists and had an x-ray taken. According to the dentist, my second molar on the top right of my mouth is being crowded by the first molar and is stuck in the gums. The dentist has advised me to go to an orthodontist and my parents are taking me there soon. But, none of my other teeth except my bottom right canine tooth and top left second molar are wobbly. Should I be worried? My dentist says I'm behind schedule but I've heard most people lose all their baby teeth before or at age 13. Even my sister, who is 10, has lost more teeth than me. Thank you for your help.

          Crash Test Dolls   
It's amazing to me, as I look at all the safety paraphernalia that my two girls have accumulated, how much we "protect" our children from everything. Somehow I survived childhood without the use of helmets, car seats or even seat belts. Riding in the back of daddy's pickup truck was a given, even on the highway. We use anti-bacterial soap, even though recent studies suggest it has a negative impact on "good" bacteria and almost no impact on "bad" bacteria. The Department of Social Services would take away my Daddy License if I allowed my kids to drink from a garden hose. All that is to preface the fact that within the span of a few days, both my daughters sustained life-altering wounds while playing. Elizabeth, 9 years old, was riding her bike at a campsite on High Rock Lake. She is not the steadiest thing on two wheels, but seemed to be OK as I rode just ahead of her. As we started down a little hill that she had already travelled many times before, she all of a sudden lost control, of her mind, and splayed out on the asphalt, bruised and bewildered. It was nothing too serious, so I got her back on the bike and we rode back to our campsite to lick our wounds. The very next day, at 8 AM on Sunday morning, I was preparing breakfast, when a sleepy-eyed fellow came walking up to our campsite with Elizabeth in one arm and a crashed up bike in another. Her little basket was smashed and she had cuts and bruises on her nose and cheek, just below the left eye. As the report came in, I discovered that she had been on the same hill, and this time was fortunate enough to find a parked golf cart to run into, in lieu of that nasty pavement. We forgot to bring her helmet that weekend. After a little ice and some parental lovin', she was alright and even got back on the bike again, although never venturing near Killer Hill. Her new nickname is Elizabeth "Crash"kins, which she really likes. The very next week, we decided to take a family walk down the street. We stopped at the corner, where a friend of mine owns a vacant rental house. In the front yard sat a pear tree pregnant with beautiful, bigger than my fist, pears. The girls immediately scurried up the tree and were happily playing as we talked to a friend who happened to be driving by. All of a sudden I heard a "I'm really hurt. Come now!!" kind of scream. It was Katherine, my 7 year old. She had fallen out of the tree and was holding her left arm, sobbing and screaming bloody murder. We got her back to the house and made a splint out of her soccer shin guards and an Ace bandage. After calling our friend who is an x-ray tech, we determined that waiting until the morning was the best option. The emergency room would just add to the misery, and they wouldn't be able to do anything until the swelling went down. It was probably broken, but not badly, so after stabilizing it, we medicated and got her in bed. After a very long and sleepless night, we got to the doctor's office, where they confirmed she had a small buckle fracture to the radius and would need a cast. Evidently some doctors don't even prescribe a cast for these types of fractures in children. Katherine's new nickname is "Cast"erine. I guess we really can't protect our kids after all. After being scolded for "loose living and hard drinking", W.C. Fields, the early 1900s film star and comedian, reputedly remarked, "There'll be a lot of healthy people who get really mad when they die of nothing." While I am no hurry to see my daughters die, or even get hurt for that matter, I do tend to allow them to explore their limits. We have taught them some very basic things. They know about strangers. They know about playing in traffic. If the stick wiggles, it's not a stick. And if they forget to use anti-bacterial soap every now and then, we just let it ride. I think they'll be alright, and if they aren't, well there's always therapy. When Dan isn't nursing some wound his daughters have sustained, he sells real estate with Fore Properties.

          A look back at the first use of radiation therapy on its 117th anniversary   
This week marks the 117 year anniversary of the first radiation treatment for cancer . Emil Grubbe is credited for his work on the case when he was still in medical school. University of Michigan physician and medical historian Dr. Howard Markel says Grubbe was still a student when he discovered that huge doses of radiation may be able to kill cells. This discovery came after he severely burned his hand by using an early x-ray on it multiple times over a short duration. The technology had only been invented a few months prior and little was known about the consequences of the high doses of radiation involved.
          GaFilk Summer & Fall   
This is the complete GaFilk Con report of Summer & Fall (Eva and Crystal)!

Wednesday, 3rd of January, 2007
As our flight was at 10:00 A.M. from Frankfurt Airport, and Steve McDonald had warned us to be there at least 3 hours in advance, we had ordered a taxi to Eva’s and Rafael’s flat at 6:00 a. m. – and Crystal also wisely spent the night in Mannheim, so we’d take this journey together from the beginning.
At Mannheim Station Rafael shot the first pictures of us, but either he or the camera was still asleep, for it somehow didn’t work (we suspect it was the camera. :-) ) It worked fine at the airport, where we arrived before seven – but the first motif was not really delightful: the exceedingly long queue in front of the Lufthansa counter desks. After we finally had passed the first security check, where an overworked lady wanted to know our destination, we almost failed to pass the second – it took a long time for the security officers to convince themselves that Eva’s guitar was NOT made of explosives, and that the weird metal plates in her suitcase (the metallophone) were NOT dangerous.... But after that, it turned out that in fact Rafael was the most suspicious person in our group – a Canadian living in Germany wanting to fly to the U.S. WITHOUT a machine-readable passport, let alone a visa – what a shock! Not that the very kind lady at the desk didn’t want him to fly, but there were new regulations, you know, and in a short while there would be even newer regulations, and she was not sure if the regulations she was thinking of were still or again in effect, or if there were still others no one had heard about yet, but which might well be in use right now.... Finally she and the Border Police agreed that at least the Germans would let him pass – Heaven knows what would happen in the U.S.; we desperately hoped that it would not be Gandalf guarding the border. The other seven or so security checks went rather smoothly, if one doesn’t count that we all had to take our shoes off several times, and Rafael’s orange juice was detected only in the second X-ray machine, which did not exactly convince us of the effectiveness of these terror-proof security measures...
At last we climbed down the stairs – to a bus (!) marked in red letters: ATLANTA. LAST BUS. We were somewhat relieved seeing that there was also a plane, to which the bus carried us.
The flight was mostly boring. We didn’t even have seats next to each other, but were distributed all over the plane. And the movies were flat and predictable, the food wasn’t much better... The only positive thing was that Crystal’s fear of flying was mitigated by the fact that the young woman sitting next to her was so afraid she was deadly white and sat with her head in her hands almost all the time. But, alas, there was nothing we could have done for her.
As the flight came to a close, we had the impression that the information about altitude, speed, temperature and distance to destination was shown less and less in European measures. We let go of meters, Celsius and km/h and let the Blue Ridge Mountains below us enter our minds.
At Atlanta Airport we had to pass another security check, of which we had the impression that the staff was specially trained not to laugh or smile under any circumstances. Hopefully the one processing Crystal was not fired afterwards, for we saw him smile. Repeatedly. But we're not telling anyone his name. Never. And then Rafael and Crystal could at last join Eva, who had been registered first and then chased out of the registration area in case she was a foreign terrorist wanting to help other foreign terrorists getting into Atlanta by distracting the unsmiling officers while their accomplices slipped through between the counters....
And then the first thing we saw stepping out of the shuttle train was a sign marked „GaFilk“ and a man carrying it, and that was Bill Sutton bedlamhouse
. Although we hadn’t really met him before, it was all hugs and cheers, and from the first moment we felt as if we’d known each other a long time... but that’s how filkers are, isn't it? We gathered our luggage and happily found our guitars still intact at first glance. Then we went to the car park – and had the unfailing impression we were in America. In Europe they never cease to tell you „everything’s bigger there“. But now we saw it WAS bigger. Every car was about the size of two German cars. Surely the car park was twice the size of one in Germany, too. Or more. For in Germany, there is never enough parking space.
Bill drove us to his house in the northern part of Atlanta. On the way he showed us the most important landmark there, in case we should ever get lost. It is called Big Chicken, and it IS a big chicken. With eyes and a beak. In D&D terms, it’s at least Huge. And it had swallowed people, or at least there were some in it. But they were eating, too, so it could not have been too harmful to them.
So. Bill’s house. And Brenda’s ladyat, too, but she wasn’t home yet. And some time later Bill had to leave again, too. But the dogs were home, and they also liked us from the beginning. We didn’t ask them if they were filkers, though. We only learned their names, which are Jack, Lucy and Neelix. There was also a cat, but he was no filker, for sure. The most important room in Bill's and Brenda's house is the kitchen. And the most important beverage is tea. We were just fine with both of these facts, even if the other rooms were very comfortable as well. But after all, none of this (except for the tea) is very important anymore, for Bill and Brenda will be moving soon, and from what we’ve learned about their new house, they will have even more rooms – hopefully, also a few kitchens.
The remainder of the day (or night, according to our jetlag) we spent watching TV and marveling at the clever tricks American TVs can do. And at the clever tricks American fridges can do. And American kitchen waste disposals. And then we went to bed.


Thursday, 4th of January, 2007
As much as we would have liked to sleep in, our inner clocks were still on CET, so we climbed out of our beds at seven a. m. after having lain awake for some time in the darkness, playing with the Suttons' cat (who seems to be an early riser, too). Bill and Brenda got up a little later; Brenda unfortunately had just caught a bad cold – on the day before the con! Terrible timing! The two of us likewise had had sore throats and some sniffles for at least a week and were on heavy dosages of Vitamin C.
Brenda made a delicious breakfast: fried eggs over easy and ham, which reminded us once more we had indeed arrived in America (most Germans don't eat savoury stuff for breakfast). Bill received a phone call telling him
that a local TV station would be present at the Con on Saturday – we all were very excited! The plans for the day kept changing constantly, since some of the incoming flights were delayed, but in the end we helped to load Bill's minivan with his extensive sound equipment, and sent Rafael along to help him unload in the Hotel while we stayed behind (no more room in the car!). Since the weather was warm and sunny, we went for a walk, wearing T-shirts – in January! We started to suspect that we might have brought along the wrong set of clothes.... We took some pictures of the surroundings; at one point a Coca-Cola truck driver even staged a photo for us, briefly stopping his vehicle and leaning out of the window, grinning.
When we came back ninety minutes later, we made some tea and had a bit of Brenda's fantastic new year's salmon, tuned our guitars for the hundredth time and had a quick rehearsal – though only a makeshift one, since we didn't want to take all our instruments out of the suitcases. In the early afternoon hours, Bill picked us up and drove us to the hotel, where we unloaded some more sound equipment and brought it to the function room, while he rushed off to pick up Allison and Debbie from the airport. Meanwhile, the two of us unpacked our luggage, checked all our instruments for damage (fortunately, there was none) and hunted down all the parts of Eva's metallophone, which had fallen apart and mixed with the rest of the contents of her suitcase. Then the phone rang – and we couldn’t help laughing when Rafael picked up the phone and said, in a very serious, businesslike voice: „Summer and Fall.“
It was UT inviting us over to their room – we immensely enjoyed seeing the three of them again! We had first met them when they were guests at FilkContinental 2005, had liked them at once and kept in touch ever since via email; Eva and Rafael had also met them once more for a nice Italian dinner when they went over to Canada to get married in April 2006. We had of course not forgotten about their fondness for chocolate, so we had brought along quite a few bars, plus three boxes of marzipan (as educational material, since one of our discussions via mail had revealed that they didn't know a whole lot about that) as well as three Summer & Fall T-shirts, which they had apparently liked when they saw them in 2005, and the music of our version of "Starsoul" which we were going to sing in our concert. We were very happy that they enjoyed the gifts, and talked happily for some time, until we heard that Myra needed help unloading her car. After carrying some more boxes and bags to the function room, the three of us retreated to our room for a short nap but came back to the function room at 7 pm to help with putting together the name tags and songbooks. The tags didn't take very long to make, but there was only one binding machine for the songbooks, so we used it mainly to punch holes in the paper while binding manually, which took most of the evening. But we had a lot of fun working, eating chunks of pizza in between and listening to T.J.'s and Linda's spontaneous rehearsal, getting to know some of the ConCom-members, guests and con participants, though we still got all the names mixed up. We would have loved to stay up much later, but were bone-tired at 11 pm and decided to go to bed.

Friday, 5th of January, 2007
The first thing we found in the lobby this morning was a German. A filker, actually. His name was Franklin, and he confessed to being a fan of Summer & Fall – he even had a custom-made T-shirt to flatter us. We decided to take him along for breakfast. This was a good decision (he is a very entertaining person). The Waffle House wasn’t too bad, either: they had coffee enough for Crystal and more than enough to eat for us all. So, mercifully, no one needed to eat the grits. Later we learned that this particular Waffle House was quite unusual, being clean, which is allegedly not true for all Waffle Houses.
After breakfast we bougt some juice and tea for our hotel room and went home across the cemetery. That’s quite a nice walk, even in a slight rain. And we were grateful for the bit of workout.
In the hotel we tried to help with various preparations for the evening. We ended up just talking and looking around – but talk with Michael Liebman was highly informative, talk with the little boy at the registration was cheerful, and the locations were neat-looking and spacious, if not as stylish as Freusburg castle hall.... This was the time, I think, when a very kindly-looking man gave a red badge to both of us. He told us the red color was because we, as Interfilk guests, were „expendable“, like redshirts. We liked the badge, and him.
Now we know who he was, and the badge is very dear to us.
We met a few people we already knew – Dave and Judith Hayman, who had been to FilkContinental before, and we were very happy to see this rather calm, very amiable couple again! There was also Kathleen Sloan, this lively, witty lady with the 'other' Rafael around her neck, which she had already introduced to us at FilkContinental. Another guy talking to us was Dave Weingart, whom Eva had met some years ago at the British Filk Convention, and Crystal via LJ.
Eva was also happy to meet her colleague Terence, with whom she talked shop for a little while.
And there were more, and more, and more...We were delighted so many people had some (or, indeed, quite a bit of) German! There were even some who had been living in Germany, and it was fun sharing or stirring up their memories. The ‚other‘ Crystal even found out that she had been living in a village next to the one Franklin comes from!...
At 2 p. m. was our rehearsal with Urban Tapestry! Again they hosted us in their room – and presented us with chocolate from Canada (that is, the chocolate was Swiss, but the label was Canadian, with a huge maple leaf and a beautiful wilderness landscape on it, so there was a lot of Canada within this present!!!) We were very curious how our international project would work – and totally surprised it went so well from the beginning! It took a few tries to become accustomed to the fact we were now singing and playing together with actual people and not just voices in the loudspeaker (it’s way more fun singing together with Debbie, Jodi and Allison than with two PC speakers!!!) – but then, we decided it was enough. You could suspect Debbie just wanted us to go on rehearsing to be able to shoot pictures of all of us in various positions!
Surprisingly we were now hungry again – we wouldn’t have expected that after THAT breakfast! So we gathered in the lobby and went to the Mexican restaurant: UT, S&F, Rafael, Franklin, Yooh and two people we had just met for the first time: Rand and Erin. The first thing we learned of Rand was that he liked his name, because 'Rand Bellavia' sounds like a protagonist’s name in a SciFi novel. Only later we found out that he is one half (ventricle or whatever) of Ookla the Mok! Which is a circumstantial evidence for our ignorance of international filk. And one of the reasons for our wishful thinking about having Ookla the Mok as guests to FilkContinental one day. One other reason for that was that Rand seemed to be curious about Germany. It is uncertain whether he would like it. There are no monkeys there. And no superheroes. Or are there? Huh? – The very best thing was that here Debbie got her big surprise, of which she ohiblather and Allison allisona already gave detailed accounts in their Con reports.
Debbie was really 'off the socks', as we say in Germany, and couldn’t stop laughing, and this got us into an even better mood!
Back in the hotel, we Germans went for a little nap. And then the Opening Ceremony started! It was a colourful, cheery thing – in some ways very different from the FilkContinental opening (the solemnity of the toasts, the formal attire of almost everyone...), but very similar in others: the feeling of cordiality and friendship, the slight weirdness of the whole crowd (there was this snake, brought by a woman called Lee, and Yooh was quite fond of it! And this gorgeous Scotsman, Dene...), - and, of course, the musicality of everyone! So „Auld lang syne“ ended up in a many-part choral singing.
The Filk Panel (with one German in each group) was very funny, although we were very glad to be part of the jury and not on one of the panels, because we hardly knew any answers!
We were utterly impressed by the signing Judi Miller and Linda Melnick, the lovely Toastmistress, made – with Judi it was like a lyrical dance, with Linda like a highly emotional stage drama. The highlight of the panel was the songs to be created – both the manic-depressive fuzzies and the road-rage head cold were stunningly hilarious!!! After that, Becca and Graham Leathers had their concert. We were flattened by their energetic and natural performance, by their gorgeous voices, and by their broad variety of songs – from the absolute funny to the contemplative... There was this pirate song (actually: there were more of them over the weekend, and they were all cool!) and the two-part version of 'A Girl That’s Never Been', as well as a cute little song called 'My kid brother'!...
In the filk circle that followed we listened eagerly to all these songs and voices heard for the first time. It was a Chaos circle, which is rather unusual at FilkContinental. Though it has its advantages: the people performing were mostly quite good and self-assured, which was pleasant to listen to. And as there were more circles in other rooms, hopefully the shyer guys also got a chance to perform, but we were too lazy to wander about. We were particularly impressed by this storyteller, Bob, Lord of Evil (we’re not sure if this is his birth name...), and his captivating style of narrating.

Saturday, 6th of January, 2007
Woke up nervous; Crystal's cold had decided that now was a good time to start acting up. Fortunately, her voice was still fine, although she had a bit of a headache. Went downstairs to find others who were interested in breakfast. It turned out that Kip, with whom we had had an appointment, had overslept even more than we had, but we ran into Alan Thiesen whom we also knew from FilkContinental and had a lovely breakfast with him; it was so nice to catch up on his life! The food itself was so-so, Rafael tried "collard greens" (which were kind of nice in small quantities), Crystal and I were also in dire need of vegetables, so we went for the okra - which unfortunately consisted mainly of breadcrumb coating. We enjoyed ourselves so much talking to Alan that, unfortunately, we missed most of S. M.
Stirling's reading, but were back in time for the Toastmistress' concert, which was simply stunning. Neither of us had heard one of Technical Difficulties' recordings before, so we didn't know what to expect. We just love that kind of surprise! Linda performed together with T.J. and T.J.'s sixteen-year-old daughter Jessie; their harmony singing was simply stunning, the a cappella pieces perfectly in tune (and we know how hard that is!). We laughed and cried so hard that we were in danger of ruining our voices for the rest of the day. "Lies" and "Cranes over Hiroshima"
were especially touching, with Linda Melnick's expressive and mesmerizing signing completely drawing us into the performance. What a great concert! After that – with no time for recovery – came the Urban Tapestry set! This
time, we were forewarned, we knew what to expect, but still these three ladies managed to totally overwhelm us with the beauty of their music. Many wonderful new songs, both funny and serious; we laughed very hard at 'Hey
J.K.' and 'Wo ist der Bahnhof?'. The latter one we knew already, but had never seen Franklin's 'props' for it before. We loved the arrangements the three had done for 'Still beautiful' (written by Aryana) and 'Paper Boats' (Eva had a hard time refraining from crying when she heard it and doesn't ever want to sing it alone anymore...). In all, simply gorgeous! “The Chocolate Song”, for which Rafael and S&F joined UT, was also well received – what a relief! Afterwards, we borrowed some instruments from various filkers (Rob Wynne's classical guitar, Yooh's steel string guitar, Brenda's bodhran, Bill's base), quickly returned to our room, sorted out all the instruments & music for the evening (which took a while), tuned our guitars once more and returned downstairs for the twofers... which, unfortunately, had already started, so we missed some performances (including one about whose PG-rating we heard a lot of arguments later on). But we really enjoyed the things we did manage to hear, including Yooh's great „Siren Song“ and some spooky stories by the very talented Lord of Evil, as well as two beautiful songs by Dave Weingart (one of them sung in German!). It was almost twenty to six when the 2x10's were over - ohmygod, we had planned to set up our instruments before the banquet and also had not changed yet!
In a frenzy we ran up to our room, grabbed our stuff, ran down again, and hurriedly drew up chairs on the stage, set out instruments, arranged the metallophone on Bill's bass case (which was just wide enough!) , laid out the lyric sheets on the chairs, ran upstairs again, hopped into our performance clothes (which we were going to wear for the banquet, too, since there was just not enough time to get changed afterwards) and made it to the banquet on time! Oof! We shared a table with Linda, her husband, Judy, T.J., her daughter Jessie, two other women we liked a lot, although we have to confess we didn't quite catch their names, and Rafael. The food was delicious, though unfortunately we could not eat very much, since we were both very excited and also do not like to perform on a full stomach. Eva had a nice dance with Rob, but other than that we decided not to get too out of breath, preferring to stay at the table and learn a lot of interesting things about signing from Linda and Judy. The house band was great, it really seemed like a shame not to spend the two hours just listening to them. By the end of the banquet we were very nervous, although Teri and Judith Hayman did their best to calm us down. We rushed over to the Filk Room, tuned our instruments, sent Rafael to hunt down some music-and guitar stands, did a sound check, and finally started our concert. And then a strange thing happened: once we started playing the first chords and singing the first few bars, we became quite calm. We looked in all those friendly, happy faces around us and suddenly all the stage fright and nervousness drained from us as we played on, simply enjoying to share our music with all those people whom we had come to like so much in those past few days. We really hope they had as much fun as we did; it truly was a great experience for us. Not everything went perfectly, but in all we were rather content with the performance and happy that one year of practice had payed off in the end. Thank you once more to Yooh and Rafael for joining in our singing, and thanks also to UT for letting us perform their beautiful song 'Starsoul'. By the end of our concert we were both over-excited and quite exhausted, so we did not join in the wenching during the Interfilk Auction at once, but started out as 'Apprentice Wenches' half an hour later (we had never seen wenching before, since it is not done at FilkContinental). Rafael made a great wench, though, giving the bidders back rubs till they hardly knew what they were saying anymore. When Judith Hayman and Kathleen Sloan bid against each other and only at reaching 80 Dollars found out they actually wanted to buy the item for the same person, we laughed so hard we almost wet our pants. The whole auction was incredibly amusing and we felt quite sorry when it was over. We were happy that the songbook, T-shirt and CD-single we brought had raised 130 Dollars, so that we could at least return a little of what had been given to us by Interfilk. We stayed in the Circle till four in the morning, mainly listening, enjoying the company, and feeling welcome. We also got a little drunk on Dave Weingart's 12 year old whisky, but hey! The concert was over! Still we played 'Kilkelly' (by Peter Jones) and 'Partings' (as requested by Allison), which went OK, although Eva got some dust in her eye sometime around the middle of the song and could hardly see the music. She was quite embarrassed that everybody thought she was crying over their own song. Ah well....
Went to bed full of laughter and songs.

Sunday, 7th of January, 2007
This morning Eva’s cold had apparently admitted defeat – while Crystal’s was even worse, with a hoarse throat and a cough. Thankfully it had waited until AFTER the concert!!! So she stayed in bed a little longer while Eva and Rafael were treated to a very nice breakfast and a lot of interesting conversation by „the elven woman and her friend“ (how we used to call C. S. Marks before learning who she was...)
Then all of us went down to the filk venues for the 'King Wenceslas' rehearsal with Alan Thiesen, Mary and Graham. The song was easy enough not to have to work on it too hard – Mary, who arrived last, was able to just join in without having seen the score before, I think! Then, for a while, we were glad to relax, talk, take a look at the dealer’s room (we bought bumper stickers and Eva a T-Shirt... Crystal wanted the one about the dark side and chocolate, but it wasn’t available in her size, sniff!) and pop into the Con Suite once in a while. We had nice chats with Graham (who left us dreaming of Canadian forests, lakes and rivers ever since), Bob the storyteller, who proved to be no less charming than his stories, and a lot of other people. We thanked Teri for her encouragement before and especially during our concert! There were also some who had to leave even before closing ceremony, so the first hugs and farewells took place.
Then – the last filk gathering. During EcumeniFilk, our small ensemble was mostly busy looking for missing members, but eventually we could give our performance, which went quite well. So our last duty was done.
Somewhere in between came the time to say good-bye to Allison, who had to get back to work tomorrow morning! This was the saddest moment so far. We had liked UT very much after FilkContinental and hoped to see them again some time, but now, after GaFilk, Allison was really a good friend leaving! None of us knows when and where we’ll be meeting next – we’re only sure there WILL be a next time. Somehow we’ll make it happen, if at FilkOntario or wherever else!!! While we were still standing there, TJ and Jessie joined us, for they were also due to leave on the next shuttle! We were very glad we had the chance to tell them good-bye properly, for they’re both very open-minded, congenial people whom we liked from the beginning! On this occasion some really good pictures were shot, and TJ and Jessie gave one last performance, of 'Hermione Granger, the Pirate Queen' – it was a delight to listen to these great singers!
The Closing Ceremony was short and rather unceremonious. We had the feeling the ConCom was quite relieved to get rid of their responsibilities. And it was amazing how many events and Cons all over America were announced!
The Ceremony held one last surprise for us: we just couldn’t believe it when the ConCom bade us come to the stage once more – and presented us with marvelous Southern-style hats with the GaFilk logo sewn on them! The same kind of hats were given to Debbie and Jodi (with a third one for Allison, of course!) and S. M. Stirling got a magnificient GaFilk Stetson, which was very becoming to him! The rest of the day we didn’t separate from our gifts, although we switched them now and then, because none of us could decide which one she liked better... And finally everyone joined in to Brenda’s very, very appropriate song „Strangers No More“.
The exact chronological order of our further memories of that day is somewhat blurred. One moment we were standing in the hotel bar with Linda, Debbie and some other people, and Linda showed us the signs for 'Summer and Fall' and 'Urban Tapestry'. She told us to be careful with the sign for 'summer', for, placed differently, it can mean 'dry' or 'ugly'! But then, it’s always handy to be able to express one’s disgust about a 'dry, ugly summer'.... There was also Dave Hayman hurrying into his room to fetch the n'Early Music Consort T-shirts three Germans had ordered from him beforehand. Seems a bit strange – to go to the U. S. to get T-shirts of a British choir from a Canadian – but so it was, and it worked just fine. And then there was, of course, the great dinner we were invited to by the ConCom, together with the remainder of the guests, in this steak house across the street. Many thanks to them again for this delicious experience! Bill and Brenda were much more relaxed than in all the days before. And we were happy to have the chance to talk to Steve Stirling and his wife Jan – some stories of his life were really ghastly!
And the two of us noted once again that not only our taste in music is pretty much the same: we ended up ordering exactly the same food (which was very, very good!). And we had a good conversation with Linda, we laughed and ate and enjoyed ourselves.
And then, the Dead Dog Circle. More unknown songs, more good singers. It was in this circle that Crystal heard John Hall (? unfortunately, none of us has a perfect memory for names...) perform this song about Ian and his brother, which she just loved, and there was Dave doing another German song, which was great, too! And Franklin with his 'lady and her knaught', and the belly dancer doing a song with Kathy Mar accompanying her, Paul Kwinn's 'Ich bin niedlich' (I'm the cute one) and other great stuff, Brenda singing one or two songs...
Before we went to bed, we plucked up our courage and performed our Tribute-to-Georgia-Song. We want to post the lyrics here, also as a thanks to all the lovely people we met, those we talked or listened to, and also those we just exchanged smiles with in the corridor.

Georgia on our Mind
(Music: „Georgia on My Mind“, lyrics: Eva Van Daele-Hunt and Christine Blum)

Georgia, Georgia, one whole year through
an enticing song kept Georgia on our mind.
Georgia, Georgia, like a call from you,
leaving us to hope and wonder what we’d find.
Other songs played tenderly,
another key and melody,
still our dreams in Germany
kept wandering to you.
Georgia, Georgia, then our songs entwined
and the voice and smile of Georgia filled our mind.

Melodies, fair reveries now linger in our heart,
though we’ll be far from Georgia, we’ll never be apart.
Some sweet day, when snowflakes fall, we’ll hear a distant song,
we’ll follow it to Georgia and smile and sing along.

Georgia, Georgia, our whole life through,
countless tunes and tales will bring you to our mind.
Georgia, Georgia, we’ll think of you
as a cheerful dream we’ll never leave behind.


Monday, 8th of January, 2007
The three of us had breakfast with Debbie, Jodi, Terence Chua, Yooh, Franklin, Rand and Erin in the hotel; lots of fun, good food and a little bit of con blues for everyone.... Afterwards we said good-bye to a lot of American filkers and then to Yooh and Franklin – but in their case, at least, not for long: we had already fixed a date for a meeting in February. After all those farewells until who knows when, this was very comforting. Three Canadians (Debbie, Jodi, Rafael), we two Germans, and one Singaporean (Terence) then packed their belongings into Bill's minivan and set off via airport shuttle and 'MARTA' to pay the famous Atlanta Aquarium a visit. We got there just in time to pick up our preordered tickets, went through a security check that reminded us unpleasantly of Frankfurt Airport – they
even took Eva's unopened pack of chewing gum away (which had passed the airport security without problems!!!)
– were herded through a 'get your picture taken for a ridiculous amount of money'-booth and finally entered the aquarium! We knew we had made the right choice in coming here when we saw the fish basins in the entrance hall: huge windows behind which large pale fish were swimming in deep blue water, beautifully lit, fascinating. We wandered around the aquarium for hours, with a leisurely break for lunch, and simply had a great time. Our favourites included the fragile-looking dragonfish, the playful otter and of course the Beluga whales, which seemed to be from another world completely, free-flying through their peaceful, blue and white world, smiling all the time. Other highlights were the petting zoo for fish & crustaceans and the glass walkway that gave you the impression on wandering over the sea-floor, surrounded by fish on all sides, big ones and small ones, most of them incredibly colourful... We identified and admired the guitarfish, gazed at rays and groupers and marvelled at the schools of small fish always swimming in front of the huge whale sharks – apparently for protection! What a bodyguard! It was a lovely afternoon, we got ourselves some souvenirs (a dragonfish-shirt for Crystal, a plush ray for Eva, Garibaldi key chains for Jodi), and thanks to the dutiful guidance of Terence, who was further away from home than any of us and yet knew his way around very well, we managed to find our meeting place with Bill without any problems.
The evening at the Suttons' place was devoted to relaxation. We ate comfort food (grilled cheese sandwiches & tomato soup), watched some football (we two had the rules explained to us by Bill, Terence and Rafael) and enjoyed each other's company. One of those moments that we want to remember forever: sitting in the kitchen with Debbie & Rafael late in the evening, sipping tea, eating chocolate, talking and talking as if we had known each other for a very long time. Went to bed around midnight, thoroughly content.

Tuesday, 9th of January, 2007
Our last day! There was not much left to do – get up, dress, have breakfast with Bill, Brenda, Jodi, Debbie and Terence (another breakfast with ham and eggs over easy, tea, and a very good macadamia-vanilla-flavored coffee, which Crystal, our sole coffee-drinker, couldn’t enjoy properly, due to her bad cold...), unstring our guitars for the flight, pack our last things, take final pictures, arrange with Jodi to send her German sweeteners, which she likes best... In the remaining two or so hours we took another walk around the neighbourhood, this time with Rafael and Debbie, and had an eager conversation about German and Canadian weddings, the strange weather, and one of our favourite topics: roleplaying!
When we came home, there was just enough time to pet the dogs once more (and the cat, if he likes it or not!...), and to say good-bye to everyone except Bill. Again: even if you’re not the sentimental type, saying good-bye to people whom you probably won’t see for a long while, and who live just SO far away, makes you feel really sad. We’d really love to see Brenda and Bill at FilkContinental some day!...
In this place, we want to thank both of them once again for their unceremonious, easy hospitality, their help in so many matters, their cheerfulness (Brenda all the while bravely fighting her cold!) and the trouble they took with the whole rest of the organizational things!
So Bill was the one driving us to the airport again, through all Atlanta from north to south. While we unloaded the car, Crystal’s hat almost flew away, but Bill caught it, and so nothing of us was left on Georgian soil. And we shared the last, sad good-bye and were on our own again.
The check-in didn’t cause any problems at all. We even got seats next to each other in the plane this time! With lots of time left, we lingered in a bookshop for a while, then went to our gate and looked around for something to eat. The 'Pecan Sticky Bun' at one of the bakery shops was delicious! The only other thing Eva and Crystal had to do was to check out with the automated security terminals at one corner. No problem with that, either! The rest of the day consisted of taking our seats on the plane, lift off, having a final look over America, and then the night was falling fast. We had dinner, then tried to sleep, which didn’t work well. Fortunately we all had stuff to read left. The winds blowing over the northern Atlantic were rather wild (up to 250 km/h), which made our flight short but a little rough. This pretty much stirred Crystal’s aviophobia. But she told herself: nothing is going to happen. We’ve had our great journey, we’ve had fun and new impressions and met new people, we NEED to take this back to Germany.
And this proved right.

Wednesday, 10th of January, 2007
We are home! Neither of us got a lot of sleep, but since we were now on Eastern Standard time we were not very tired when we arrived in Frankfurt. It took some time to retrieve the baggage, but in the end everything arrived intact, and we were not even harassed by customs for bringing tons of instruments into the country! There was a little accident on the escalator, where Eva was hit by a heavy suitcase falling off some inattentive person's trolley, but other than that our journey home went remarkably smoothly. We caught the ICE to Mannheim, where Eva and Rafael got off and took a taxi home, while Crystal changed trains and travelled on for another hour before she, too, finally arrived in her apartment. Many hours of this day were spent sleeping and calling up family and friends to tell them we had returned safely and to talk about the wonderful time we had had in Georgia. It wasn't until the evening that we learned about Dave Alway's death. How we wish we had spent more time with him that weekend! Looking at the badges he had made for us, we felt so sorry, so sad, and so isolated from the American filk community that we spent most of the evening online, reading con reports, looking at photos, finding out who Dave was and mourning with all those who knew him better. Looking back on our journey, happy and joyful memories blended with a warm, gentle melancholy fill us like a beautiful song, a song we may never write but whose echoes will always
resound in our hearts. We offer thanks to all those who made this week that seemed so much more than just a week wonderful and special: thanks for your hospitality and friendship, your embraces, your encouraging smiles,
and all your songs and stories that have followed us home to Germany.
Danke!

          Floy Quintos Values Shock Value

Four-time Palanca awardee playwright and television director Floy Quntos shares a couple of laughs with Miles as he talks about his groundbreaking Reality TV show in a Reality TV show in a play, SHOCK VALUE. A sudden but intentional deviation from his historical and critically acclaimed St. Louis Loves Dem Filipinos, Shock Value tells of a TV host named Matt (Andoy Ranay and John Cruz, alernate), whose life turns into a psychedelic rollercoaster ride after a highly publicized rendezvous with a supposedly underaged street hustler. Watch as Matt negotiates the monstrosity he has unwillingly concocted from the flashy ingredients of TV glamour and personal manipulation. The colors are tremendous, the energy inviting, and the actors almost allow you to jump onstage and indulge in the madness. It's like watching your typical Filipino lunch time variety show--only with x-ray vision and three shots of runaway steriods. Shock Value is directed by the formidable Alex Cortez and features Frances Makil-Ignacio, Stella Canete, Missy Maramara, Dexter Santos, Jomari Jose, Justin de Leon, Mario Magallona and Edwin Serrano, along with a powerhouse cast of young theater actors, singers and dancers. It's amazing how you can cram in so many people in such a compact theater. The play runs August 30th til September 17th at the Wilfrido Ma. Guerrero Theater, in UP Diliman. Tickets and inquiries at 926-1349 or 981-8500 extension 2449 and 2450. Music in this episode is called "Carousel" by Miles Sanchez.

Distinguishing signal from noise has always been a major goal in probabilistic analysis of data. Such is no less the case in the field of medical imaging, where both the processes of photon emission and their rate of absorption by the body behave as random variables. We explore methods by which to extricate solid conclusions from noisy data involving an X-ray transform, long the mathematical mainstay of such tools as computed axial tomography (CAT scans). Working on the assumption of having some prior probabilities assigned to various states a body can be found in, we introduce and make rigorous an understanding of how to condition these into posterior probabilities by using the scan data.

          Lovely 2SF Ripping Guide   

This document explains how to rip a DS game to 2SF.

If you are going to rip a game that uses standard DS sound format (SDAT), you do not need to read this guide. You can use VGMToolbox to convert directly DS ROM to 2SF. I also recommend you to create NCSF instead of 2SF.

If it's not the case, it requires a manual ripping.

There is a 2SF ripping guide by unknownfile. However, since it is quite old, it is written for old 2SF format, and some tools in the guide cannot be downloaded today. As far as I know, it was the only guide for manual 2SF ripping, unfortunately. This is why I decided to write this guide, even though I am not very familiar with DS architectures.

I hope it helps you to create a new 2SF.

Prerequisites

You need to have a knowledge of some technical things:

In this tutorial, I will use the following tools.

  • no$gba debugger version: High functionality emulator/debugger for GBA/NDS games.
  • DeSmuME: One of the best NDS emulator (I always use it for casual use). It is open-source and has some good debugger features, since it is a standard DS emulator for tool-assisted speedrun community. I sometimes use it for RAM search, memory viewer and Lua scripting.
  • IDA Pro: User-friendly disassembler. This is not a mandatory tool for 2SF ripping (no$gba will help you enough), but it's one of the best tools for every PSF ripping.
  • Tinke: Viewer and editor for files of NDS games. I use it to view ROM header and explore the NitroFS filesystem.
  • Hex editor: Everyone needs it for reverse-engineering work, right? I am using 010 Editor, but you can choose a different good free editor.

The whole strategy for 2SF ripping is quite similar to my generic PSF ripping strategy.

Loading NDS ROM

DS hardware has a two CPUs, ARM946E-S and ARM7TDMI. ARM9 is a main CPU, and ARM7TDMI is a sub CPU that is usually used for sound processing.

Therefore, a DS game has two entrypoints and code sections, and they correspond to ARM9 and ARM7TDMI. Usually, they will be loaded into a different address of the same main RAM (0x2xxxxxx). The entrypoint addresses are recorded in ROM header. You can view it by Tinke, or any other header tools.

To load a ROM into IDA Pro, there are several methods.

  • Use Nintendo DS loader module for IDA Pro.
  • Load the ROM in DeSmuME, and export whole main RAM data into a file (use View Memory), and load it into IDA Pro as ARM code.
    1. Choose ARM processor, and press OK
    2. Create 0x400000 bytes RAM segment at 0x2000000, and load the file into 0x2000000
    3. Move to ARM9 entrypoint (usually 0x2008000), set the processor mode to ARM (press Alt+G and set T = 0x0), and press C key

Music playback request is usually demanded by ARM9, so we will start exploring the ARM9 code, and we will not see the ARM7 code.

Also, you should view the filesystem and guess sound data is stored into what file.

Locating The Sound Select

Find a function to select a song and start playback. As I explained in my generic PSF ripping strategy guide, I often do it by backtracing the access to the score data pointer.

  1. Find a score data pointer address by DeSmuME's RAM search
  2. Back to no$gba, then set write breakpoint to the address (something like [2012345]!!)
  3. Repeat backtracing by "Run to Sub-Return" and find the target function

However, DS game has a build-in filesystem. So it often can be find by searching filenames. (See "Names" list if you are using IDA Pro) The following two methods are quoted from unknownfile's guide.

SOUND SELECT STYLE 1: sprintf (Doki Doki Majou Shinpan's CRI ADX driver)

This game uses an algorithm to use a sprintf call before playing the ADX files. The sprintf values are thus:

RAM:020BF780 aSBgm_DD_adx    DCB "%s/BGM_%d%d.adx",0 ; DATA XREF: RAM:off_207E568
RAM:020BF790 a_dataSoundBgm  DCB "_Data/Sound/Bgm",0 ; DATA XREF: RAM:off_207E56C

At this point, we trace back to the calling function and we get this:

RAM:0207E534                 SUB     LR, R4, R0
RAM:0207E538                 LDR     R1, =aSBgm_DD_adx
RAM:0207E53C                 LDR     R2, =a_dataSoundBgm
RAM:0207E540                 ADD     R0, SP, #0x50+var_4C
RAM:0207E544                 STR     LR, [SP,#0x50+var_50]
RAM:0207E548                 ADD     R3, R12, R3,ASR#2
RAM:0207E54C                 BL      sub_20118C4

The strings are loaded to R1 and R2, and the sound digit is loaded into R4. Therefore, we write the song value to R4.

SOUND SELECT STYLE 2: Register holds the sound value (Generic driver, Super Princess Peach)

Games using this sound select style are harder to rip as there is no obvious way to identify where the sound register is actually given to the engine. A good place to start is to place breakpoints in functions following an initialization function which is obvious to locate (generic driver games all use a call to load a file such as sound_data.sdat).

A typical generic driver sound select looks like this:

ROM:02060BB8                 STMFD   SP!, {R4,R5,LR}
ROM:02060BBC                 SUB     SP, SP, #0xC
ROM:02060BC0                 MOV     R4, R1
ROM:02060BC4                 MOV     R5, R0
ROM:02060BC8                 MOV     R0, R4
ROM:02060BCC                 BL      sub_205F8D8

r1 goes to r4, r0 goes to r5, and r4 goes to r0. In this case, we could use r1 on 0x02060BB8, or r0 on 0x02060BCC.

In other cases, the sound select value requires you to trace back and keep inserting values into a register until the music changes. Super Princess Peach and Yoshi's Island DS required me to go looking a bit before finding the register.

Locate Driver Code to main

You can test the function by the following steps:

  1. Set a breakpoint just before the function call
  2. Edit the arguments (register or RAM value)
  3. Listen whether it changes the song (try another function or parameter if it doesn't)

After finding the sound select function, you need to test it.

no$gba can change the ARM instructions during the emulation. Put a small driver code in the middle of main function (say, a noreturn function called by the startup function), and reset the game.

The driver code can be something like the following.

mov   r0, #1            ; song index
mov   r1, #0            ; do not forget to set other required arguments
mov   r2, #0x100
bl    #0x20034568       ; call the sound select

infinite_loop:          ; stop the main thread (music playback should be processed by interrupts)
swi   4
b     infinite_loop

Congratulations! It starts playing the music and stays in blank screen! If not, try to put the driver code in another address.

Save the change to ROM file by using a hex editor. no$gba is good for quick check, but it probably does not have a function to save altered ROM.

Minimize Initialization

Fill each bl #0xXXXXXXXX instructions with NOP, and test whether it affect to music playback. Remove all unwanted instructions out by repeating the above steps. It may take a time, but please be patient.

Convert ROM into 2SF

It's time to convert the ROM to 2SF.

  1. Convert the altered ROM file into 2sflib by rom2sf utility
  2. Make a number of mini2sf files by mini2sf utility

Optimizing the 2SF

Unfortunately, we do not have a handy tool like gsfopt yet. Therefore I cannot optimize a 2SF set yet.

I hope someone make a optimization tool based on vio2sf or something like that.


           My Generic PSF (Portable Sound Format: PSF1, GSF) Ripping Strategy   

Here I introduce my PSF ripping method.

日本語に翻訳する (Yahoo) 日本語に翻訳する (Google)

Introduction

I assume you already know about the following things:

  • What is PSF? - A format for video game music rips. In most cases, a PSF is a compressed game ROM whose non-sound stuff is removed by ripper.
  • "Streamed?" "Sequenced?" What's the difference? etc. - Read PSF Frequently Asked Questions - Neill Corlett's Home Page
  • What is pointer? - For this purpose, I recommend you to learn C.
  • Do I need to learn assembly? - At least you need to know basics. (for example: "What is a register?" "What is a stack?") If you already know one of assemblies, I think you can solve your problems during ripping by pinpoint googling.

Prerequisites

  • Emulator (Debugger) - such as no$psx or no$gba debugger
    • It must have step execution function. (Step Into, Step Over, Run To Return)
    • It definitely should have a function that can change instructions by using assembly.
    • It should change register value. (If not available, use an external tool such as MHS.)
  • IDA Pro - it will help you in reading assembly a lot. See also: IDA Pro - How To Load Game ROM
  • Memory Scanner - such as Memory Hacking Software (MHS) or Cheat Engine.
    • This tool is optional. It is handy when the emulator does not have built-in RAM search function.
    • It can be used to set a memory breakpoint, when the emulator does not have a memory breakpoint feature. (thankfully, nocash debuggers has the feature)

Typical structure of unaltered game

I think a game has routines like the following typically:

register int a0, a1, a2, a3;
register int sp;

void start(void)
{
    // Minimal Initialization
    sp = 0xXXXXXXXX;
    memset(BSS_START, 0, BSS_SIZE);

    main();         // will never return
}

void main(void)
{
    // Initialization Stage
    InitIRQ();      // set interrupt callback(s), an operation like this should exist in upper part of startup code
    a0 = 0xXXXX;
    InitFoo(a0);
    a0 = 0xXXXX;
    a1 = 0xXXXX;
    InitBaa(a0, a1);
    a0 = 0xXXXX;
    InitSound(a0);  // init sound registers
    InitMoo();

    // Main Loop Stage
    main_loop:
        MainFunc1();
        a0 = 0xXXXX;
        a1 = 0xXXXX;
        MainFunc2(a0, a1);
        a0 = 0xXXXX;
        MainFunc3(a0);
        MainFunc4();
        WaitForVSync();
    goto main_loop;

    // never return
}

// Callback for interrupts are registered at initialization stage.
// User callbacks are usually called by BIOS or CPU.
// Those callbacks are used for frequent and synchronous operations,
// so that music playback routine must be called by such a callback, in most cases.
// Some drivers may call the routine from a timer callback, instead of a vsync callback.
void VSyncCallback()
{
    UpdateSound();
    UpdateVideo();
    UpdateBlah();
}

// Start playback. This function is usually called from subroutines in main loop.
// Sound system needs to be initialized beforehand.
// "Load" functions may need to be called beforehand.
void PlayNewSong(int songId, ...)
{
    // initialize score pointer of each tracks, etc.
    ...
}

// About Load Functions
// --------------------
// The music data may need to be loaded from ROM to RAM before the playback,
// if the sound unit cannot read the data directly from ROM for some reasons.
// For example, PlayStation games need to load the music data from CD.
// They also need to load waveforms (PSX ADPCM) to the sound buffer.
// Most GBA games probably do not need it, because the processor can read ROM.
// For such systems, you may also need to find such load functions.

Details depend on the console and game.

Strategy summary

  1. Analysis before ripping
    1. Search score pointers
    2. Search "play new song" function
    3. Analyze loading routines
  2. Ripping
    1. Minimize main loop
    2. Insert driver code (call the song select function)
    3. Minimize initialization
    4. Minimize callback
    5. Code refactoring

Search score pointers

I explained how, in Example Of Sequenced VGM Analysis.

Search "play new song" function

// Start playback. This function is usually called from subroutines in main loop.
// Sound system needs to be initialized beforehand.
// "Load" functions may need to be called beforehand.
void PlayNewSong(int songId, ...)
{
    // initialize score pointer of each tracks, etc.
    ...
}

Score pointers must be initialized when a new song starts playback. So that I always set a write-breakpoint to one of those pointers. (this is done by using MHS, because nocash debuggers cannot do that. In nocash debugger, you can set memory breakpoint by "Define Break/Condition" menu. Syntax for a write-breakpoint is `[address]!!` Read the help for details.)

Let me show the case of PS1 "Hokuto no Ken" as an example.

Set write-breakpoint and find where the score pointer gets changed
  1. Run no$psx
  2. Play the game until just before a song starts playback, then pause the game
  3. Make a savestate (for quick redo, and prevent to change the song data address)

Here I need to set a write-breakpoint to one of the pointers, 0x80079B60.

  1. Open "Debug → Define Break/Condition" from the menu
  2. Enter `[80079B60]!!` (without quotes) and press OK

Now a breakpoint is set. The emulator will hit to the breakpoint immediately, after you unpause the game. In my case, it has stopped at 0x8003C00C. The pointer value gets updated by the instruction here, so I assume we can find the song load function by tracing back.

Note: Do not forget to remove the memory breakpoint before you start tracing back!

Backtrace from the write instruction

Repeat the following steps for 3-5 times:

  1. Select "Run → Run to Sub-return" from the menu (or press F8)
  2. If possible, read the function start address of previously noted instruction, from the one before the current instruction. (If not possible, use IDA Pro instead.)
  3. Write down the instruction address

After that, obtain the function start address of each instruction addresses, by reading the previous instruction or using IDA Pro. Your note will become something like the following.

Sub-return Function Note
0x8003C00C 0x8003BF0C Writes to score pointer
0x8003C1FC 0x8003C060
0x8003C3BC 0x8003C374
0x8003B84C 0x8003B714
0x80011F58 - I guess this is not the playback function because its address is far away from others

I think one of function addresses is the top of playback function. Load a savestate and set a breakpoint to the top-level function (0x8003B714), then resume the game.

The execution will be stopped when a song starts playing. Edit one of the arguments to the function, and unpause the emulation. *1 If the game plays a different song, the function is apparently the song select function. It is what exactly we are searching for.

In my case, the game has played a different song by manipulating r2 register.

In actual research, you may fail and need to try for other arguments and functions. Try patiently, probably you will find the right answer after all (hopefully!).

After find the playback function, try to understand what each arguments mean.

Analyze load function

Games may need to load a music data from somewhere.

  • If it's a PSX game, the game needs to load music data from CD
  • If a music data is compressed or archived, the game needs to unpack it to another RAM area
  • Some games may not have a load function (for example: GBA games, which can access to every ROM addresses directly)

Here we just need to do the same things. Try to know the data location, and use memory breakpoints.

In PS1 Hokuto no Ken, I somehow learned two facts:

  • Music archive seems to be always loaded to 0x800FE000 (I decided to import music archive there by PSFLib)
  • Music archive is unpacked by function 0x80012808

Minimize main loop

Most of functions (or all functions) in the main loop is not necessary for sound playback, since the sound playback is usually done by a callback.

The below is an example of main loop.

    // Main Loop Stage
    main_loop:
        MainFunc1();
        a0 = 0xXXXX;
        a1 = 0xXXXX;
        MainFunc2(a0, a1);
        a0 = 0xXXXX;
        MainFunc3(a0);
        MainFunc4();
        WaitForVSync();
    goto main_loop;

Try removing unwanted codes. Follow the steps:

  1. Play the game until a song starts playing, then pause it
  2. Set a breakpoint at the line like "call MainFunc1"
  3. Run the game and it will stop immediately
  4. Unset the breakpoint and change the instruction to NOP
  5. Unpause the game and see if the music still work (If it works, the function call probably can be removed. If it does not work, the function may be necessary.)
  6. Repeat those steps for every function calls in main loop

In my case, it has become an empty loop:

    // Main Loop Stage
    main_loop:
        //MainFunc1();
        //a0 = 0xXXXX;
        //a1 = 0xXXXX;
        //MainFunc2(a0, a1);
        //a0 = 0xXXXX;
        //MainFunc3(a0);
        //MainFunc4();
        WaitForVSync();   // this call can also be removed
    goto main_loop;

Insert driver code (call the song select function)

You should have small free code block in main loop. Use the block to patch the game to play a song immediately.

    // Main Loop Stage
    //main_loop:
        //MainFunc1();
        //a0 = 0xXXXX;
        //a1 = 0xXXXX;
        //MainFunc2(a0, a1);
        //a0 = 0xXXXX;
        //MainFunc3(a0);
        //MainFunc4();

    // Song Starter Example
    UnpackMusicArchive(MUSIC_ARCHIVE_ADDRESS);  // call loading functions before the playback function, if available
    PlayNewSong(SONG_INDEX);

    main_loop_hacked:
        WaitForVSync();   // this call can also be removed
    goto main_loop_hacked;

Reset & Run the game after inserting the code. Does a song start playing? Can you change the song by editing the arguments? If so, you have almost done your work!

For the next step, you should make a copy of the ROM file, and apply the patch to it. Then, open it instead of unaltered ROM by the emulator.

Minimize initialization

    // Initialization Stage
    InitIRQ();      // set interrupt callback(s), an operation like this should exist in upper part of startup code
    a0 = 0xXXXX;
    InitFoo(a0);
    a0 = 0xXXXX;
    a1 = 0xXXXX;
    InitBaa(a0, a1);
    a0 = 0xXXXX;
    InitSound(a0);  // init sound registers
    InitMoo();

Remove unnecessary calls like we have done in main loop:

  1. Change the instruction like "call InitFoo" to NOP
  2. Reset & Run the game and see if the music still work (If it does not work, reload the ROM, and try removing unnecessary calls in the subroutine.)
  3. Repeat those steps for every function calls

For example, the final result may become like the following:

    // Initialization Stage
    InitIRQ();      // set interrupt callback(s), an operation like this should exist in upper part of startup code
    a0 = 0xXXXX;
    InitFoo(a0);
    //a0 = 0xXXXX;
    //a1 = 0xXXXX;
    //InitBaa(a0, a1);
    a0 = 0xXXXX;
    InitSound(a0);  // init sound registers
    //InitMoo();
    ...

void InitFoo(int a0)
{
    InitSoundRegion();
    //InitJoypad();
}

Minimize callback

Do the same thing to callback function.

void VSyncCallback()
{
    UpdateSound();
    //UpdateVideo();
    //UpdateBlah();
}

Code refactoring

Probably, patched main function is filled by a lot of NOPs. If you think that is not beautiful, you may want to create a new main routine.

Note: For PlayStation games, you can write the new driver code in C, thanks of PSF-o-Cycle.

// commented-out instructions are filled by NOP

void start(void)
{
    // Minimal Initialization
    sp = 0xXXXXXXXX;
    memset(BSS_START, 0, BSS_SIZE);

    main_PSF();     // will never return
}

void main(void)     // no longer used
{
    ...
}

void main_PSF(void) // inserted to an unused code block
{
    // Initialization Stage
    InitIRQ();      // set interrupt callback(s), an operation like this should exist in upper part of startup code
    a0 = 0xXXXX;
    InitFoo(a0);
    a0 = 0xXXXX;
    InitSound(a0);  // init sound registers

    // Song Starter
    UnpackMusicArchive(MUSIC_ARCHIVE_ADDRESS);
    PlayNewSong(SONG_INDEX);

    // Main Loop Stage
    main_loop:
        WaitForVSync();
    goto main_loop;
}

void InitFoo(int a0)
{
    InitSoundRegion();
    //InitJoypad();
}

// Callback for interrupts are registered at initialization stage.
// User callbacks are usually called by BIOS or CPU.
// Those callbacks are used for frequent and synchronous operations,
// so that music playback routine must be called by such a callback, in most cases.
// Some drivers may call the routine from a timer callback, instead of a vsync callback.
void VSyncCallback()
{
    UpdateSound();
    //UpdateVideo();
    //UpdateBlah();
}

Notes

Assembly

General

  • Depending on architecture, there are some pseudo instructions (macro) like the following (MIPS). IDA Pro will recover those pseudo instructions, however, many other disassemblers do not. (PSFLab and nocash debugger do not, at least)
li $t0, 0x1234ABCD
  ↓
lui $t0, 0x1234
ori $t0, $t0, 0xABCD

MIPS

  • The immediate value of addi/addiu instruction is always signed.
addiu $t1, $t0, 0xFFFF
  ↓ means
addiu $t1, $t0, -1
  • Jump and branch instructions have a "delay slot". This means that the instruction after the jump or branch instruction is executed before the jump or branch is executed.
addiu $a0, $zero, 1
jal $8001A000  ; a0 = 2
addiu $a0, $zero, 2
How to know vsync callback address
  • PS1: Search xrefs to VSyncCallback by IDA Pro (It must be identified by PsyQ sigunature).
  • GBA: Interrupt handler function address must be written in 0x03007FFC. The handler function must read 0x04000202 and see what interrupt has raised. See GBATEK for details.
  • General: Repeat "Run to Sub-return" from subfunction of vsync callback
How to wait for vsync
  • PS1: VSync runtime function (It must be identified by PsyQ sigunature).
  • GBA: SWI 05h (IDA Pro will display it as "SVC 5"), VBlankIntrWait BIOS function, however, this BIOS function will never return when the callback does not update 3007FF8 (see GBATEK for details). If the game does not use any other interrupts, you can also use SWI 02h (Halt), it does not require a flag update.

Graveyard

Old method. It is not necessary in most cases, but it might be required for some limited cases.

Removed Section: Set write-breakpoint by MHS and get program counter (PC) value

This section is removed since nocash debugger has a built-in memory breakpoint feature.

First of all, run emulator and MHS.

  1. Run no$psx.
  2. Run MHS and open the no$psx process.
  3. Play the game until just before a song starts playback, then pause the game.
  4. Make a savestate, as usual.

I need to set a write-breakpoint to one of those pointers, PSX-RAM:$79B60. I assume it is already in the main address list. (See Example Of Sequenced VGM Analysis!)

Right-click on the address and click "Find What Writes This Address".

It attaches debugger to the emulator and opens Disassembler and Helper windows. Then delete the added address from Helper window.

Activate Disassembler window, then right-click on a random instruction and click "Breakpoints → Add Software Write Breakpoint Here".

An address must be added to Breakpoints tab in Helper window. Double-click the item to edit it.

Edit the address to watch the PC address of score pointer, then click OK.

Finally a breakpoint is set! Back to the emulator and continue the game. Probably the emulator will run very slowly, but please wait until something will happen.

Hopefully, the emulator will stop running, and MHS's Disassembler will popup and highlight the current execution address.

Now I need to read the program counter (PC), however, the emulator is freezing because of the breakpoint. Therefore, I have to read it from MHS. How? The answer is written in Memory Addresses Of Emulators. Since NO$PSX always has the current execution address in ESI register, I need to view the value through Registers tab in Helper window.

Of course it's PC address, so convert it to game address.

Finally, I get the code address 0x3C92C (0x8003C92C). We need to resume the emulator before using the address though.

  1. Remove your breakpoint from Breakpoints tab
  2. Dettach debugger by Disassembler window
  3. Close Disassembler window

Correction: In the screenshot above, I tried to search an instruction that writes to track 1. However, I needed to search track 3 in fact, because track 1 is used by SFX. I got 0x3C010 (0x8003C010) after the correct process.

*1:no$psx can change the register value. Right-click the target register column and select "Change Value" menu item.


           My Favorite Tools For Video Game Music Analysis   

This article shows what I use/know in my VGM analysis work.

Tools

If you know a good tool, let me know, please. :)

  • Generic
    • Debuggers
      • MHS, Cheat Engine - By attaching these debugger tools to an emulator, you will be able to add some debugging functions, such as RAM tools and read/write breakpoints. I recommend you to install both, and start solving Cheat Engine's tutorial EXE by using MHS. See also: Memory Addresses Of Emulators
    • Editors
      • Hex editors: Use your favorite one. I have used Stirling (Japanese hex editor since 19XX) for a long time. However, I have migrated to 010 Editor (49.95 USD for home use) since 2015.
      • Text editors: EmEditor (日本語) is my primary text editor on Windows (EmEditor is a commercial product, but EmEditor Free is also available). I also use Sublime Text on Mac OS X.
        • I recommend to use a text editor which has an enough undo buffer, regular-expression and rectangle selection functions at least.
    • Players
      • foobar2000 - My favorite music player. It works good for VGMs if install additional components.
      • Winamp - I sometimes use Winamp as a SPC/PSF tagger. (you need to install plugins first)
    • Converters, Ripping Tools, etc.
      • VGMTrans - Can convert various game music to MIDI and SF2. Also, it will be useful when you want to write a parser for a new format.
      • VGMToolbox - It includes tools to extract, optimize, and build VGM formats as well as auditing and exploration utilities.
  • NES
    • Emulators
      • FCEUX - This one provides almost everything.
      • G-NES, G-NSF - I sometimes use it for only one reason: view sound registers. FCEUX lacks it, isn't it? :(
      • NO$NES - Never tried this yet.
    • Ripping Tools
    • Converters
      • nsf2midi - Unfortunately, it cannot output duty cycle.
      • nes2midi (Lua) - nsf2midi is easier to use than this, however, this one can output duty cycle. Also, it does not require NSF ripping.
  • SNES
  • GB/GBA
    • Emulators
    • Ripping, Analysis Tools
    • Converters
      • GBAMusRiper - If you want to convert the music of standard driver (MusicPlayer2000, aka. Sappy) to MIDI and SF2, check this one. Do not use my buggy GBA2MIDI, please.
      • gb2midi (Lua) - I think this is the easiest way to dump everything.
  • Nintendo DS
  • Playstation
    • Emulators
      • NO$PSX - Though its accuracy is not very good, it is the best PS1 debugger as far as I know.
      • XEBRA - The most accurate and fast PS1 emulator as far as I know. It has savestates and "save the main memory image to file" function, while its terms and interfaces are somewhat different from other emulators.
      • psxjin - TASVideos always rocks, unless when the game does not work well.
    • Ripping, Analysis Tools

Notes

  • I suggest you visit TASVideos / Emulator Resources. They usually use emulators that are stable and have some useful tools such as RAM search, debugger and Lua scripting. Additionally, they must be open-source.

          Booboo.   
I had to put Booboo to sleep on Wednesday night. I took him to the vet on Wednesday morning because I thought he was constipated. In the car on the way there, I told him, "We'll get you fixed up; it's going be okay." But it turned out that there was water in his abdominal cavity and that he was severely sick. It wasn't constipation at all. The vet said it's a condition that happens very fast and gets bad quickly, and there was no way I could have known. We did X-rays to try to figure out more, and I rush ordered an expert opinion and went home with Booboo for the three-hour wait. We gave Booboo all his favorite things and lots of petting and ice cubes and his favorite toy. The vet had said she didn't want to give up hope, but it sure felt like our time together was unexpectedly coming to an end. Rapidly.


Though we had known he had kidney failure and a heart arrhythmia since December 2015, his kidney-failure medicine had been holding off any noticeable decline at all. And his arrhythmia was not worsening. He'd been happy and well. He was such a happy, sweet, super social cat...

But now it was clear Booboo didn't feel good. He usually purred loudly when I pet him or cuddled with him, but now there was nothing. Or maybe there was almost a noise, but it was so faint it wasn't clear if it was Booboo or just me wishing he were purring. He hadn't used his litter box at all in a while and was hardly eating or drinking anything. But he still seemed glad to be with us, even if he was in pain.

Finally we got the call from the vet about the expert analysis. Of the three possible causes, the vet felt pretty sure it was caused by a tumor. But to know the exact cause and to try to treat whichever cause, it would have taken an ultrasound and some sort of surgery/invasive intervention. And that just didn't seem like a good idea for an older cat with his problems. Especially because two of the three problems were fatal anyways, and the other was only a small chance of a cure. And he already only had 25% kidney function.

So we made the decision to put him to sleep that evening. It was really hard. But it seemed like things would only get worse for him, and I didn't want him to be in more pain.

I was with him to the end. I'd never been with an animal when one was put to sleep. I had been there years ago when my grandfather had died, so I had thought I would be prepared for it.

But I wasn't. It turns out when you authorize it, when you choose the death of someone else, it's an entirely different thing. And Booboo was alert and awake. He looked at me with complete trust. It was heart-breaking and agonizing. I positioned myself right by him, my face in front of his face, petting him and talking to him. I kissed him on the top of the head, like he liked. We looked in each others' eyes as the medicine made him lose consciousness. His eyes were open, so it was hard to tell when exactly he was slipping away. I talked to him the whole time, though, just in case he could hear me. I stayed right by him for the second step (which stopped his heart). And when his heart had stopped, everyone left and gave me time alone with him. I wrapped him up in the little fleece blanket that was under him, covering the table. I kissed him on the head, and told him goodbye. He was my family, and he was there for me through the worst time of my life. He was my faithful, loving friend.

I miss him so much. These last days have been hard. I keep seeing his favorite places and imagining him there. His food and water bowls remain untouched. I'm not quite ready to empty them and move them. So many patterns and routines are now different. When I told him, "Booboo, it's bedtime!" he'd scamper down the hall and hop in bed. When my alarm went off in the mornings, he was the enforcer to make sure I actually got out of bed. And if my alarm didn't go off on a day off, he'd come and cuddle with me.

Here are some of my favorite things about Booboo, in no particular order:

  • When Booboo came to lie down he would wait before committing to lying down. Then, all at once, he'd plop over
  • I loved Booboo's curly, fuzzy white fur on his tummy and his soft fur in general.
  • Booboo loved getting kisses on the top of his head. I think I started kissing him there a couple of years ago, and he must of decided he liked it, because it would position his head to "ask" for kisses.
  • He knew how to use a mirror. Multiple times over the last years, he would be walking down the hall away from me (towards a mirror at the end of the hallway) on the way to the bathroom, and then stop and look "back" at me in the mirror to see if I was following him. He also would look at me in the mirror in the bathroom. It was so interesting to see him learn what a mirror was and realize that it was not another cat in the mirror and that he could watch me in the mirror.
  • I loved that Booboo loved ice cubes. He would ask for them regularly and he just loved his water with ice cubes in it. He also loved to rub his cheeks against the ice cubes.
  • Booboo was incredibly social. He would spend most of his time in the same place with me.
  • Booboo would come when I called him.
  • He never held a grudge. Even if he went to the vet and had something painful done, he was always as happy as normal as soon as he was home again. It was as if nothing had happened. He was the sweetest.
  • He never nipped or bit.
  • Booboo seemed to like most everyone and he was patient even when being chased around the apartment by little kiddos. He just politely excused himself to under the bed when he was tired of being around kids.
  • Booboo liked to hang out in the dining area at dinner time, and sometimes he sat in a chair at the table, hanging out.
  • He was curious and playful.
  • He loved boxesBoxesboxesboxes!
  • Booboo loved lying on top of my shoes. My red converse were his favorites.
  • His snoring was the most adorable thing ever.

 You were the best kitty in the world, and I love you and miss you. Goodnight, sweet Booboo.

          MAO MORTA - HISTORY, CONCERTS,   
MAO MORTA -  Miguel Pedro (bateria), Joaquim Pinto (baixo), Carlos Fortes (guitarra), AdolfoLuxúria Canibal (voz) e Zé dos Eclipses (guitarra) arquivo Blitz

Adolfo Luxúria Canibal (born in Luanda, December 25, 1959), baptized Adolfo Augusto Martins da Cruz Morais de Macedo, is a lawyer, musician, and Portuguese poet.

In October of 1984, Joaquim Pinto watches in Berlin to a performance of the Swans. At the end of the concert is Harry Crosby, a bassist from the New York band, who tells him that he has a bass player. Pinto returns to Braga, buys a bass and, in November of that year, forms the MAO MORTA, with Miguel Pedro on guitar and Adolfo Luxúria Canibal in the voice.

The MAO MORTA premieres live, in January 1985, in Porto, in Orfeão da Foz. Ze of the Eclipses enters for guitarist Miguel Pedro passing to the drums.

In November 1985, Zé dos Eclipses debuted live at the concert held at Fábrica, Braga. They participate in the 1st New Rock Music Contest, in the Infante Pavilion of Sagres, where they are in 4th place.
They are compiled for the III Rendez-Vous Rock Modern Music Contest where they would win the Originality Prize, which was the most appealing and prestigious award after their submission in the previous year to Pop Dell'Arte.

In September, Carlos Fortes joined the group on the 2nd guitar, and in October 1986, performed their international debut with a concert in Vigo (Spain), El Kremlin, integrated in the Rock Vigo-Oporto 86 In the course of this participation would come to frutify a friendship between the Mao Morta and Pop Dell'Arte, who were also part of the poster.

The first edition of the band, the cassette Mao Morta (1987).
The year of 1987 was marked by the devastation of Cinema Império, in Lisbon, when the Mao Morta integrated in the poster of the Days of the Empire, there acted in October together with the American Gun Club.

 In October of 1988 they made the first part of the British Wire, in the Pavilion Infante de Sagres, in Porto, when the LP was launched, a new music journal that was more focused on the independent scene than the Blitz.
In December they make the first two parts, at the Carlos Lopes Pavilion in Lisbon and at the Rivoli Theater in Porto, the Australian Nick Cave with his Bad Seeds.

They participate in the compilation À Sombra de Deus, with the subtitle Braga 88 that had a great impact media, not only for being the first time in Portugal, a City Council supported the youth culture and edited a disc of local bands, but above all .For finally being available a record of what was known as the bracarense movement, of which much was said but a few, outside Braga, knew, taking away their most notorious representatives Mao Morta, Rongwrong and Bateau Lavoir.

In spite of being a year of great musical activity, 1989 would end up in the history as the one in which Adolph Luxúria Canibal inflicted itself several blows on a leg in a concert realized in Rock Rendez-Vous completely crowded.

Months later, in a television interview, it was justified by saying that Rock Rendez-Vous was too full, with a very heavy, "knife-cutting" environment, and before it could happen any misfortune decided to show blood, "because blood calms the moods, "but with the heat of the installment had not realized the severity of the injuries ...

They began to prepare a new disc but Joaquim Pinto leaves the band after the concert that the Mao Morta gave in January of 1990 in Rock Rendez-Vous. It would be replaced by José Pedro Moura, until then in Pop Dell'Arte, and that it would debut like bassist of the band in a concert in Aveiro.

But before, in May, in a year in which live performances were rare, Mao Morta in a crowded Cinema Alvalade, make another great concert in Lisbon, in the first part of the Swiss Young Gods, where they present the fullness of Felt Hearts and Featured the live debut of Antonio Rafael on the keys.

  

António Rafael had already participated in the recordings of the disc, as a guest musician, but with this concert it became official his entrance in the group. Corações Felpudos was to be released only in September 1990 through the brand Fungui, the bags and wallets factory of Vítor Silva, 'manager' of the band since the days of Malucos da Pátria.

RUT - Radio Tejo University elected in February 1987 the Mao Morta, as "the best national band without registration on vinyl", with the offer of professional studio time for the recording of two tracks, which would be released in August , Along with 4 other songs recorded in K7 format by Malucos da Pátria. In November, they premiere live on television, in the Fisga youth program, broadcast on Channel 1 of RTP - Radiotelevisão Portuguesa.

At the end of 1990 they are in studio to record what would be their 3rd album: O.D., Queen of Rock & Crawl. The independent publisher Área Total, Guarda, had shown interest in editing Felt Hearts, but having no financial means to pay its cost, it convinced the band to edit a new record, recorded in a cheaper studio. And in January 1991, while the 1990 balance sheets of the cultural weekly Se7e and the Public General newspaper included Felt Hearts as one of the best albums of the year, Dead Hands had a new album ready.

 Its edition was scheduled for February, when the band performed for two sold out concerts in the new Lisbon room Johnny Guitar, but due to several delays in the making of the covers, which eventually came out with adulterated colors and the labels of the vinyl ring for paste , Its edition would only happen in June, in a concert in Covilhã, in the discotheque Fábrica.

This would also be Ze's last concert of the Eclipses with the band, since he was leaving for Santa Bárbara, USA, the first stage of a career as a Portuguese reader and cultural attaché that would take him to Santiago de Chile, in the Chile, Fez in Morocco, and Paris in France.

Two days earlier, at a concert in Santo Tirso, Sapo, previously the guitarist of Pop Dell'Arte, had been released, which would replace him on guitar.
1991 had a lot more concerts than the previous year, although without reaching the number that the band had habituated until 1989, but mainly returned to be media interest by the work of the group, with the newspaper Blitz giving cover to the Hand Dead in February , On the occasion of the postponed edition of OD, Queen of Rock & Crawl, and Se7E to do the same in June, such as the regional weekly Minho.

 In turn, in December, in its annual balance sheet, the Public newspaper includes O.D., Queen of the Rock & Crawl in its list of the ten best editions of the year.

Nevertheless, with the problems that occurred in the editions of Felting Hearts and OD, Queen of Rock & Crawl and with a new rare of concerts, the morale of the band was in the tracks - in 1992 they made a single concert in April in First part of the British Jesus & Mary Chain, at the Carlos Lopes Pavilion in Lisbon, and even the one with a bitter taste with José Pedro Moura - held back by a police raid in the neighborhood of Casal Ventoso, where his dependence on heroin forced him to move - has to be replaced at the last minute by Antonio Rafael ...

Facing the inertia that was installed, Adolfo Luxúria Canibal convinces Vítor Silva to bet on a new disc and in May the Dead Hand enter again in recordings. They choose the best Portuguese studio of the time, the Angel, where they stay until July and where they meet the producer and sound technician José Fortes, with whom they come into perfect harmony.

Despite the absence of José Pedro Moura, who appears a single day in the studio, the band gains confidence and surrenders heart and soul to the production of what would become his most celebrated album: Mutantes S.21.

Edited in early December, again by the brand Fungui, the disc, which is a backstage tour of nine cities, is still in time to be counted in the annual press reports, being "the best national record of the year" for the Diário de Notícias And included in the list of the best ten of the year of Público and Se7e, while the group is cover of Blitz and Se7e.

The Pop-Off youth culture magazine, broadcast by RTP2, featured weekly video clips by independent bands, and once again, as happened with the edition of Felt Hearts and OD, Queen of Rock & Crawl, invites the Dead Hand to make a video of Mutants S.21.

The chosen theme is Budapest and to realize it was highlighted Nuno Tudela, with whom from that the group maintains a relation of lasting complicity.

The Budapest clip turns out to be the most sought after on another daily program on public television channel 1, Vira o Vídeo, where it stays for weeks on top of its Top Video, dragging with it an unexpected radio airplay that would do with That on February 11, 1993 Mutantes S.21 entered the 28th place of the National Top of Sales. Still this month the Mao Morta make the cover of Académica magazine.

The success of Budapest and Mutantes S.21 could not fail to be reflected in the request for concerts, especially as the group contracted with a new entertainment agency (by Mario Dimas, an experienced agent), and 1993 is a year of touring Triumphant, with several mythical performances.

Beginning in March, with the first parts of the Tubes, the Carlos Lopes Pavilion in Lisbon and the Coliseu do Porto, the tour of Mutantes S.21 also leads the Dead Hand, as heads of posters, to Queima das Fitas of the University of Porto Or the Burial Week of the University of Aveiro, where the debauchery on stage is worth an interdiction of the academy for several years.

 Other concerts of this year would be recorded in memory, as in March the clashes that provoked with the police in Mirandela or in June the invasion of the stage by a fan with naked breasts in a crowded Incredible Almadense, in Almada, but none is approaching that in May Starred in the Teatro-Circo, in Braga.

The assistance, in a more than exhausted room, surrendered to the group and it was as if levitating, completely unconscious of its acts, in a collective hysteria of difficult explanation, only to land in the end, in a Theater-Circus destroyed, that almost the only ones Centennial walls resisted.

In the middle there had been everything from dives to the crowd to an attempt at oral sex with Adolfo Luxúria Canibal by a more uncontrolled fan.

This concert had as a pretext the launch of a special edition of Mutantes S.21, with a book of cartoons to illustrate the diverse subjects of the disc, in a kind of farewell to the old vinyl: Mutantes S.21 was also the first edition In the new CD media.

The album also had a nomination for the Golden Se7e of 1993 in the category "best record" (the Golden Se7e was a prestigious annual award instituted by the weekly Se7e, which rewarded the various manifestations within the entertainment area - music, theater, Cinema - that had most distinguished themselves in the year), and in November it would be included in the selection The Best Discs of Portuguese Music, the first balance sheet on the Portuguese musical edition, organized by Diário de Notícias.

Still in November they perform with the British Inspiral Carpets, in the Great Nave of the Exhibition Park in Braga, in the presentation of the second volume of the series À Sombra de Deus, whose idea of ​​a portrait of the state of creativity of Bra- carian music had been taken up again by Miguel Pedro, still always with the sponsorship of the local authority, and give the first interview for a foreign television, in the case to Lemon TV, of Scotland.

But before that they had already aroused the interest of the multinational BMG: its managers were present in Portugal Ao Vivo, a show that in July filled the Estádio de Alvalade with the live presentation of the main names that dominated the Portuguese top of disc sold and in whose Giant screens, in the intervals of performances, passed the music videos made by the television program Pop-Off, and had been very impressed to see that huge crowd chant Budapest every time the clip passed on the screen.

 Immediately they contacted the group and at the end of the month the Dead Hand signed with BMG a contract for a disc, at the option of the band that did not want to compromise any longer, entering in December in studio for the recording of the fifth disc.

In a year of many concerts, with a new performance in May as headliners in the Queima das Fitas of the University of Porto or in the Academic Week of the Instituto Politécnico da Guarda, 1994 would be marked by the participation of the Dead Hand in a new stadium event, the Children of the Live Madrugada, which took place in June at the Estádio de Alvalade, in the framework of Lisbon 94 - European Capital of Culture, and which brought together the various players in the album to pay tribute to José Afonso.
Also in 1994, in September, the collection À Sombra de Deus (Volume 2) and the first maxi single from the group, in a return to the vinyl, with variations on the theme Dogs of Chromium included in Venus in Flames are finally published.

The Blitz, with the disappearance of the weekly Se7e, decides to institute for music an award that would occupy the space left vacant by the Golden Se7e, and launches the Blitz Music Awards. In March 1995 the Dead Hand are nominated in the categories "national group of the year" and "best male national singer", through Adolfo Luxúria Canibal.

1995 was again a year full of concerts, with the Dead Hands in May to be headlines in the Academic Weeks of the Polytechnic Institute of Leiria and the Polytechnic Institute of Bragança, to participate for the first time in the biggest Portuguese student event, Queima das Fitas Of the University of Coimbra, where they share the stage with the English The Fall, and in June to integrate the alignment of their first summer festival, the Imperial Live in Lisbon.

The band receives from the director Jorge Silva Melo an invitation, on behalf of the Cultural Center of Belém (CCB), to play poems of the late German playwright Heiner Müller, about the posthumous presentation of the play Germania 3.

 The band, with the collaboration of the costume designer Ana Rita and the director Mariana Otero, transforms the invitation into the design of a multimedia show, Müller at the Hotel Hessischer Hof, which premiered in January 1997 in an exhausted and euphoric CCB.

The show has two more sold-out dates in the small room of the Centro Cultural de Belém and three others, always sold out, at the Garcia de Resende Theater in Évora, at the Teatro-Circo in Braga and at the Gil Vicente Theater in Coimbra. The recording of the premiere show would still be released on disc in May, with direct entry to the 20th place of Top National Sales, where it stayed for four weeks, and on video in February 1998.

In May 1997, they won a Blitz Music Prize - 1996 in the category of "best video clip" - the only year in which this category existed - with the Chabala video, performed in May of the previous year by Nuno Tudela to accompany Edition of the homonymous single by BMG. In June, Adolfo Luxúria Canibal receives the "A Nossa Terra" regional award in the "music" category, in its first edition.

Live, also highlights the participation in the 5th international festival of Paredes de Coura, which ended, acting after the Rollins Band Americans. 1997 would end with the inclusion of Müller in the Hotel Hessischer Hof in the best lists of the year of several publications, being "2º best national disc of the year" for the weekly Expresso and "5º best national disc of the year" for the newspaper Diário de News. 

In March of 1998 through Adolfo Luxúria Canibal, they are nominated for a Blitz Music Award - 1997, in the category "best male national singer".

 The following month they cover the weeklies Blitz and X-Ray and edit Long Time ago that In this Latrine the Air Became Irresistible, a conceptual work based on the artistic-political theories of the Situationist International, that has direct entrance to the 12th place of the Top National Sales.

 In the tour that followed, in May they run the student events.
They would also perform at the Dive in the Future festival in August at the Abel Pereira da Fonseca Warehouses, held at Expo 98, the Lisbon World Exhibition, together with the Americans Blonde Redhead and Unwound, in a selection of Arto Lindsay, and at the Reception at Caloiro of the Higher Institute of Engineering of Lisbon, in October.

Still in 1998, during May, the Dead Hand had 24 hours of radio broadcast dedicated to the group, in the RUM - Radio University of Minho, in an event entitled 24 Horas du Mano Morta, are highlighted in the report that the French magazine L ' Express makes about Lisbon and some of his videos, as well as an interview with Adolfo Luxúria Canibal, are broadcast by the Brazilian television station TV Globo.

In July, FNAC published the book The Best Discs of Portuguese Popular Music (1960-1997), which includes the albums Still Life and Mutants S.21, this being included in October in the selection of Great Albums of the weekly X-ray .

Also in December of 1998 are reedited in CD the first three albums of the group, Dead Hand, Hearts Felt and O.D., Queen of the Rock & Crawl.

The following month, Mao Morta filled the Coliseum dos Recreios, Lisbon's mythical theater, closing the presentation of A Long Time ago that In this Latrine the Air became unbreakable with a dazzling concert, where they resort to video manipulation to build on stage The media mystification that the album was about.

In addition to the January edition of the Xutos & Pontapés - XX Anos XX Bandas - award, platinum album in March, and in which the Dead Hand participate with a version of the theme Mother, the year 1999 was devoted to shows , With the group again recording their record of annual concerts, most notably their participation in the Burial Week at the University of Aveiro, a return to the academy after they were banned in 1993, and at various summer festivals, such as Carviçais Rock in Torre de Moncorvo, Cellos Rock in Barcelos, Rock Feira in Santa Maria da Feira and Noites Ritual Rock in Oporto.

MAO MORTA CONCERTO RIVOLI PORTO 1988

But the shows still take the group out of the country, with concerts in Paris (France), where in June the Dead Hands are headlines in the show PluxshshshFeira - Musiques Nouvelles du Portugal, and in Olmo and Arezzo (Italy), where in July perform a fantastic performance at the biggest Italian festival, the Arezzo Wave Love Festival.

The year ends with a memorable concert in Lisbon, Lux, the new cult area of ​​the capital, which is completely sold out to celebrate the band's 15th anniversary.

The transition to the new millennium also brings changes in the formation of the band: José Pedro Moura makes his last concert with the Dead Hands in June 2000 in Braga, a show integrated in the festivities of the 2000 years of the city, because, to the general amazement , When the Dead Hand ascend to the stage of the 8th international festival of Paredes de Coura in August, is Gonçalo Budda, from the bracarense group Big Fat Mamma, who takes his place ... José Pedro Moura is replaced by Marta Abreu, previously in the female group Of Coimbra Voodoo Dolls.

Marta Abreu participates in the recording sessions of the album that the Dead Hand have been working since April in the studio of the Escola de Jazz do Porto, and meanwhile are taking place at the AreaMaster in Vigo, Spain.

His live debut with the band takes place only in November, in his hometown, at the Festival of Cans of the University of Coimbra, but it would be just another concert with the group - at the Reception to Caloiros of the University of Beira Interior, in the Covilhã - because shortly afterwards, she vacated the place for Joana Longobardi, who had previously replaced her in the Voodoo Dolls, and which premiered with Mano Morta at the New Year concert in Braga.
With the spring edition of Wrecks the Dead Hand are awarded the contract of two albums signed with NorteSul and Adolfo Luxúria Canibal, Miguel Pedro and António Rafael decide to create their own record label.

Although the purpose was not to edit Dead Hand, but rather the active intervention in the Portuguese publishing market by the availability of names that are not normally signed by the major publishers, Cobra's first artifact, released in May 2003, is Carícias Malícias, a live record Of touring by small spaces that the Dead Hand had assembled, with a profuse selection of photographs taken by the fans to witness the enthusiasm that surrounded her.

The desire to share with the fans would still make the video of promotion to the disc was composed only with images captured by them in the most diverse concerts of the tour.
In 2003, the Dead Hand returned to the big concerts.

Nus was edited by Cobra in April 2004, after its edition was removed from the Zona Music publisher, due to disagreements regarding compliance with the agreement, and to have been rejected by the publishers Música Alternativa, EMI and Universal on the grounds that it would not be Sufficiently commercial.

The album, after an initial distribution by the kiosks with the weekly Blitz, quickly sold out, is distributed in May by record stores and proves to be ironically the most successful record of the group, having in a few weeks reached the equivalent number of sales (A certification that is not officially attributed to him because the Cobra label is not part of the Portuguese Phonographic Association - for the same reason, his sales are not counted in the Top Sales Officer).


The album is a trip for the memory of a generation, the "lyrical generation bracarense" as the Dead Hand identify it, with its utopias of freedom and revolution and its descent into the hells of drugs, prison and death, and begins With the theme Gumes, an epic of 22 minutes that works as distributor of the remaining themes. Its presentation is made in April in an exhausted Auditorium of the Palace of Exhibitions, in Braga. 
Rock in Rio

In April is published the book Narradores da Decadência, the first biography of the Dead Hand [2], where the journalist Vítor Junqueira approaches the band's career. The third volume of the series "À Sombra de Deus" ("The Sombra de Deus"), again collected by Miguel Pedro and edited by the autarchy, is released. The Dead Hand includes the theme Sobe, Querida, Desce.

In October, they began a new round of small spaces, similar to what they had done with the Malice Caresses Tour, which this time called Autumn Sessions. Following are the Winter Sessions, which began in January 2005, which takes the Nus presentation shows to various theaters and auditoriums throughout Portugal.

In the first quarter of 2005, they dedicate themselves to the Winter Sessions, taking the Nus disc, and an organized and fan-mounted photographic exhibition, to sites such as the Gil Vicente Theater in Coimbra, Lisbon Forum, Vila Real Theater, Casa das Artes, in Arcos de Valdevez, the Cine-Teatro Paraíso in Tomar, Cine-Teatro São João in Palmela, or the Castle of Sines, closing with an unforgettable concert exhausted in the Aula Magna in Lisbon.

The two Lisbon concerts are recorded and filmed for a later DVD edition, which has not yet happened.

After the Winter Sessions, the Dead Hand is dedicated to the preparation of a show based on the book The Songs of Maldoror, written by Isidore Ducasse under the pseudonym of The Count of Lautréamont.

It does not prevent the recording of 4 songs for Henrique Amaro's 3 Pistas radio program in April (two of which were released on the disc in the following month in a collection with the best songs presented), broadcast by Antena 3, The 1st Festival of the Serra da Estrela, or at the end of the year organize another mini tour through small spaces, now in Galicia, called Xira Galega, which passes through A Coruña, Santiago de Compostela and Vigo.

 Adolfo Luxúria Canibal intensifies its surroundings in Mécanosphère and creates Shards with António Rafael, a spoken word show that presents throughout the country and still in Budapest, Hungary (and later edits in disc in 2006);

Antonio Rafael, in addition to Shards, composes for several plays; Miguel Pedro founded new groups, such as Jazz Iguanas with António Rafael, a trio of improvised electronics (with a disc released in 2006), or Mundo Cão, a classic rock quintet with Vasco Vaz and also the collaboration in the lyrics of Adolfo Luxúria Canibal First album released in 2007).

After an incursion to Paris, where in March of 2007 they act like heads of posters in the festival Tarola Rock, the Dead Hand finally inaugurate Maldoror in May of 2007.

The premiere is in Braga, in the new Theatro Circo. The show, with staging by António Durães, scenography by Pedro Tudela, costumes by Cláudia Ribeiro, video images by Nuno Tudela and light drawing by Manuel Antunes. Is a success, with enthusiastic reviews.
They participated in the 2007 Paredes de Coura Festival, where they were the main band of the day, and where, at the end of the performance, Adolfo Luxúria Canibal announces the end of the group, after 23 years of career, in a "farewell to rock 'n roll ", Which turned out to be a joke of the singer.

In October, a tribute album to Hand Morta - Tributo a Mano Morta - And Se Later ... was published by the independent publisher Raging Planet, with the participation of some of the main names of the new generation of Portuguese musicians from the alternative area.

In the first half of 2008 they take the show Maldoror on a tour around the country. It ends in May at Theatro Circo de Braga where it had premiered a year earlier.

The double disc Maldoror is edited. In July they make a concert film integrated in the 16th Short of Vila do Conde - International Film Festival, in which they play, and play live accompanying the projection, the films A Study In Choreography For Camera, At Land, Meshes Of The Afternoon and Ritual In Transfigured Time by the American director Maya Deren.

The recording of this concert is edited in July 2009, with the title Rituals Transfigured, edition that besides the CD with the soundtracks includes a DVD with the short films sonorized.

The recording of the debut concert is released on DVD by Cobra Records which also includes an extra documentary on the tour.

In August 2008 they played for the first time in the Azores, in the city of Horta (Faial) and participated, in a partnership with José Mário Branco, for the movement of solidarity with mental illness, composing the theme Madness, published in November of that year.

          Heel Lift For Functional Leg Length Discrepancy   
Overview

The majority of people in the world actually have some degree of leg length discrepancy, up to 2cm. One study found that only around 1/4 of people have legs of equal lengths. LLD of greater than 2cm is relatively rare, however, and the greater the discrepancy, the greater the chances of having a clinical problem down the road. A limp generally begins when LLD exceeds 2cm and becomes extremely noticeable above 3cm. When patients with LLD develop an abnormal gait, one of the debilitating clinical features can be fatigue because of the relatively high amount of energy needed to walk in the new, inefficient way. Poliomyelitis, or polio, as it is more commonly known, used to account for around 1/3 of all cases of LLD, but due to the effectiveness of polio vaccines, it now represents a negligible cause of the condition. Functional LLD, described above, usually involves treatment focused on the hip, pelvis, and/or lower back, rather than the leg. If you have been diagnosed with functional LLD or pelvic obliquity, please ask your orthopaedic surgeon for more information about treatment of these conditions.Leg Length Discrepancy

Causes

Some limb-length differences are caused by actual anatomic differences from one side to the other (referred to as structural causes). The femur is longer (or shorter) or the cartilage between the femur and tibia is thicker (or thinner) on one side. There could be actual deformities in one femur or hip joint contributing to leg length differences from side to side. Even a small structural difference can amount to significant changes in the anatomy of the limb. A past history of leg fracture, developmental hip dysplasia, slipped capital femoral epiphysis (SCFE), short neck of the femur, or coxa vara can also lead to placement of the femoral head in the hip socket that is offset. The end-result can be a limb-length difference and early degenerative arthritis of the hip.

Symptoms

The symptoms of limb deformity can range from a mild difference in the appearance of a leg or arm to major loss of function of the use of an extremity. For instance, you may notice that your child has a significant limp. If there is deformity in the extremity, the patient may develop arthritis as he or she gets older, especially if the lower extremities are involved. Patients often present due to the appearance of the extremity (it looks different from the other side).

Diagnosis

On standing examination one iliac crest may be higher/lower than the other. However a physiotherapist, osteopath or chiropractor will examine the LLD in prone or supine position and measure it, confirming the diagnosis of structural (or functional) LLD. The LLD should be measured using bony fixed points. X-Ray should be taken in a standing position. The osteopath, physiotherapist or chiropractor will look at femoral head & acetabulum, knee joints, ankle joints.

Non Surgical Treatment

Treatment of leg length inequality involves many different approaches, such as orthotics, epiphysiodesis, shortening, and lengthening, which can be used alone or combined in an effort to achieve equalization of leg lengths. Leg length inequality of 2 cm or less is usually not a functional problem. Often, leg length can be equalized with a shoe lift, which usually corrects about two thirds of the leg length inequality. Up to 1 cm can be inserted in the shoe. For larger leg length inequalities, the shoe must be built up. This needs to be done for every shoe worn, thus limiting the type of shoe that the patient can wear. Leg length inequalities beyond 5 cm are difficult to treat with a shoe lift. The shoe looks unsightly, and often the patient complains of instability with such a large lift. A foot-in-foot prosthesis can be used for larger leg length inequalities. This is often done as a temporizing measure for young children with significant leg length inequalities. The prosthesis is bulky, and a fixed equinus contracture may result.

Surgical Treatment

Surgical treatments vary in complexity. Sometimes the goal of surgery is to stop the growth of the longer limb. Other times, surgeons work to lengthen the shorter limb. Orthopedic surgeons may treat children who have limb-length conditions with one or a combination of these surgical techniques. Bone resection. An operation to remove a section of bone, evening out the limbs in teens or adults who are no longer growing. Epiphyseal stapling. An operation to slow the rate of growth of the longer limb by inserting staples into the growth plate, then removing them when the desired result is achieved. Epiphysiodesis. An operation to slow the rate of growth of the longer limb by creating a permanent bony ridge near the growth plate. Limb lengthening. A procedure (also called distraction osteogenesis or the Ilizarov procedure) that involves attaching an internal or external fixator to a limb and gradually pulling apart bone segments to grow new bone between them. There are several ways your doctor can predict the final LLD, and thus the timing of the surgery. The easiest way is the so-called Australian method, popularised by Dr. Malcolm Menelaus, an Australian orthopedic surgeon. According to this method, growth in girls is estimated to stop at age 14, and in boys at age 16 years. The femur grows at the rate of 10 mm. a year, and the upper tibia at the rate of 6 mm. a year. Using simple arithmetic, one can get a fairly good prediction of future growth. This of course, is an average, and the patient may be an average. To cut down the risk of this, the doctor usually measures leg length using special X-ray technique (called a Scanogram) on three occasions over at least one year duration to estimate growth per year. He may also do an X-ray of the left hand to estimate the bone age (which in some cases may differ from chronological age) by comparing it with an atlas of bone age. In most cases, however, the bone age and chronological age are quite close. Another method of predicting final LLD is by using Anderson and Green?s remaining growth charts. This is a very cumbersome method, but was till the 1970?s, the only method of predicting remaining growth. More recently, however, a much more convenient method of predicting LLD was discovered by Dr. Colin Moseley from Montreal. His technique of using straight line graphs to plot growth of leg lengths is now the most widely used method of predicting leg length discrepancy. Whatever method your doctor uses, over a period of one or two years, once he has a good idea of the final LLD, he can then formulate a plan to equalize leg lengths. Epiphyseodesis is usually done in the last 2 to 3 years of growth, giving a maximum correction of about 5 cm. Leg lengthening can be done at any age, and can give corrections of 5 to10 cm., or more.

          -- Jordan Hicks Breaks Finger; OUT 3-4 Weeks --   
PhillyVoice reports Philadelphia Eagles LB Jordan Hicks injured his hand on Thursday while on vacation in Greece. The source said that Hicks injured it while getting out of a pool. The exact severity of Hicks' injury is not yet known, as he has not yet gone for X-rays in Greece, where he remains for now. However, he did send video of his hand, performing an array of motions for team doctors to view. The Eagles do not believe the injury to be overly significant. A source with the Eagles explained that even if it is broken, the likelihood is that it would only be about a four-week injury. Sports Radio 94 adds Hicks has a broken finger and is out 3-4 weeks. He should be ready for training camp.

Nobody's Leaving This World Tonight


The Best of 2011

The new devices first accelerate the old ways, and then things change. I used to write about music on the internet. People still do, in a sense, but it's a different sense. We are now, collectively, exploring the idea that quantitative and qualitative are a quantitative distinction. Instead of a few people writing 3000 words each, we have thousands of people writing a few words each. This is clearly worse if you like to read about music, but if writing about music was a means to an end, then maybe more data is a better means. The end, the goal, the dream, is that with data and logic we can reveal the associative flow that we have always sensed inhered in the music itself. The dream, the hope, the aspiration, is that our thus-mediated self can enter into the flow. The theory, the thought experiment, the conceit, is that measure by measure, drop by drop, these sounds we love can never stop.

I have believed this to be somehow possible since, more or less, my first hour downloading and printing a Gary Numan discography off of Usenet. I spent a decade obsessively pursuing music discovery as literature, in a sort of parallel denial, but there was always data, and more data, and eventually it had to add up to something.

And so music discovery has become math, and I have become a conductor of numbers and correlations, and a bookkeeper of our itemized helplessness. And maybe it seems like we are supposed to fear this, these computers now listening to our music for us, but like many fears, this is a mistake of context. The computers aren't listening to music instead of us. The logarithms lead us to the start of a song, where we might not otherwise have ever arrived, but then the song starts and the mediation dissolves, and the magic power of the music pours straight into us the way it always has.


Metal Albums


1

Blood Stain Child: Epsilon

I was never really a solipsist, any more than I was a nihilist or an anarchist or any other show-off meta-philosophy, any more than I am a viking or a cyborg or a Satanist. These are toy ideas in the best sense of "toy", fabrications of possibility for the purpose of contrast or hope. But if I were a solipsist, a universe arranged for my insulation could hardly do much better than cross-breeding European death metal and Japanese trance-pop. You learn something interesting about people who claimed to love being shocked when they flinch at being surprised. Shallowness, in the end, is merely a dimension. We have learned to make our shells so hard, and so shiny, that sometimes their thickness is gloriously immaterial.


2

Elizium: Relief by the Sun

But it goes both ways, or all three ways, or however many dimensions it is that you hold these songs to travel through. Elizium are as warm as Blood Stain Child are ice-mooned, measured where BSC are quantized, roaring where they chirp, open-hearted over airlocked. But these are tactical contrasts, I think, not antitheses. The problem with materialism is not that it values objects, it's that it mis-values objects, that it detaches the objects from their implications. The point of a cadence is not a function of the particular composition of its metronome. These paths are lined with soil and metal, stone and airwaves, flittering lights and movable hearths.

Unleash the Archers: Demons of the Astrowaste

This was the year I finally stopped going to record stores to buy music. This was, for much of my life, much of my life. But it had long since ceased to be functionally necessary, and then it had slowly ceased to be particularly helpful, and eventually it mostly stopped even being possible. I have personally seen material copies of only three of the twenty albums on these two metal lists, although Unleash the Archers' website claims they could mail you one of this. But I was never going to discover this band in a physical store. They're unsigned, they're from another country, and their name and art both make them look like refugees from a late 80s Metal Blade compilation that maybe suffered a last-minute Manowar cancellation. But none of this matters very much anymore. I couldn't possibly tell you why I spent the click or two necessary to follow some random link and hear a few seconds of this band. This year I listened to a few seconds of literally hundreds of bands about which I knew basically nothing. Much of the time, a few seconds later I knew one more thing about them, and that was enough. But 7 of these 10 astonishing albums began their life with me in just about this way, and maybe none were more surprising than Unleash the Archers, who turn out to be a sort of frenetically but unceremoniously epic post-ironic alt-power-metal cross between Gamma Ray and Madder Mortem, or maybe between Veruca Salt and Fates Warning. I miss record stores a little, too, but I would rather live this way.

Pantheist: Pantheist

There are forms of metal with most possible virtues, but quiet subtlety is chronically underrepresented, superfically because metal is about loudness and extremity, but maybe more inherently because the genre tends to evolve by extrapolation, rather than interpolation, and so each new thing is usually some earlier thing done faster or angrier or louder or more something. But it can go the other way. So while most of the threads of doom metal curve off into whisper-ambient funeral doom, or Sunn O))) drone or various formulations of stoner sludge, Pantheist take up the trajectory from Black Sabbath off through Cathedral, and follow it back towards grace and songcraft, like an anticipatory soundtrack for a new Harold and Maude cross-written into The Sandman.

Subway to Sally: Schwarz In Schwarz

We had a little metal listening club on I Love Music for a while last year. Each week somebody would pick a couple albums, and a group of us would try to listen to them all the way through. I'd never heard of Subway to Sally when somebody picked one of their albums for a week of formative early folk-metal, and I wasn't even entirely charmed by the punk/polka thump of it, but at least afterwards I knew who they were, so I gave this album its :10 chance when I came across it, just to see what it meant that they were still around. What it means, to me, is that somebody went back and figured out how to separate the energizing parts of old Skyclad from the goofy ones, and replace the latter with the least martial components of Neue Deutsche Härte. If we're rewriting movies via soundtrack shift, this is the one for morphing Katja von Garnier's Bandits halfway into Tom Tykwer's Heaven.

Dornenreich: Flammentriebe

And extrapolate from Subway to Sally, splintering the marching rhythms into stabbing atmospherics, smearing the rock urgency into pagan catharsis, and redeploying the violins from Dexy's reels towards Nymanesque psycho-cartography, and you get an alternate folk-art-metal decomposition that, if this were Skyclad, would give them a style arc of almost Talk Talk-like scope.

Jesu: Ascension

Part of the point of this obdurate segmentation of my musical world into metal and not is that almost anything you contain and inhabit can react by expanding into all the implied and absent niches. You can remake an entire musical world inside of any worthy genre. Or maybe that's just what I mean by "genre": a varietal microcosm. And thus Jesu has become my metal world's Low, and it's only when I listen to the two in very quick succession that the visceral identification wavers. Minimal, haunted, cresting, frail and grand, post-anthemic and elemental.

Terra Tenebrosa: The Tunnels

The mole people have their own oblique, guttural, chittering music. It is meant, I think, mostly for instilling nightmares in voles, and some kind of cabalistic subsonic thrall-herding of gray owls.


9

Thy Catafalque: Rengeteg

Somebody must have figured that if you played a kid a steady-enough stream of Jean Michel Jarre, Gogol Bordello and 69 Love Songs over an old shortwave, it would wean him off metal. It didn't work.

Lifelover: Sjukdom
