Exercise is a noble activity and physically rewarding, but sometimes the strains can be debilitating. Sometimes the pain just will not go away and solid advice becomes necessary. The help on YouTube is phenomenal.

1. Calf Strain — It is often like a toothache. It is there, it goes away, it comes back, etc. When pressure is exerted the discomfort returns. Please make it go away!

2. Tennis Elbow — Not a big one here, but if you’re into weightlifting this is very miserable and it won’t go away.

3. Shoulder Pain — There’s times when you don’t know what exactly is wrong, as such is often the case with shoulder pain.

The Magnesium Complex

According to the increasing evidence of poor diet and its effect, mineral deficiency in America may be a growing problem, and maybe we should examine the nutritional value of our meals. The apathetic stance taken is unfortunate, as an increasing number suffer obesity, along with chronic health issues. Many are clueless and remain apathetic.

How can a nation ridden with chronic illness emerge from one of the top industrialized societies? Are we overfed and undernourished at the same time? Do we have a potential health crisis underlying the American exceptionalism?

Ironically, the complexity lies with the paradox of too much choice and obviously too much processed foods.

Combined with the giant fast food industry and a decline in agricultural practices, people are becoming more unhealthy. Yet, hardly one soul will take the time to read the labels or scrutinize the ingredients inside the appetizing pleasure meal with sugary soft drink.

The previous generations must have known about the importance of beans, greens, herbs, and minerals.

Ceruloplasmin is the major copper-carrying protein in the blood, and in addition plays a role in iron metabolism.” It carries more than 95% of the total copper in healthy human plasma, therefore copper plays a very important role in iron metabolism.

However, as important as iron is, there’s a danger in getting too much iron and iron overload is more prevalent among males. Excess iron may deposit in the liver, pancreas, and retina, leading to cirrhosis, endocrine abnormalities, and loss of vision, respectively. So you may reconsider those foods and vitamins that are “fortified” with iron.

Another potential problem is too much calcium and not enough magnesium, although this is generally hidden. Do I get enough magnesium?

Two forms of magnesium are magnesium malate and magnesium glycinate. For slow release one can use Jigsaw Magnesium w/SRT. The Anti-Stress Drink is called Natural Calm.

The electrolytes that run the autonomic nervous system: Na (Sodium), K (Potassium), Mg (Magnesium), Ca (Calcium).

Understanding The Principles Of Distillation

Distilled water has been known since at least 200 AD, when Alexander of Aphrodisias described the process. The distillation equipment is called a still.

A simple way (labeled How To Turn Salt Water Into Fresh Water) explains the process using a few items at hand. The price would be from 2 to 5 dollars.

Maybe a distill water maker such as: Megahome Countertop Water Distiller.

Electrodeionization is a water treatment technology that utilizes an electricity, ion exchange membranes and resin to deionize water and separate dissolved ions (impurities) from water.”

Distillation is an old process also used for desalination, which removes salt from water. Saltwater is not suitable for human consumption and is considered undesirable in that regard. “According to the International Desalination Association, in June 2015, 18,426 desalination plants operated worldwide, producing 86.8 million cubic meters per day, providing water for 300 million people.”

The single largest desalination project is Ras Al-Khair in Saudi Arabia, however, it is Kuwait that wins the race, producing 100% of its water usage.

Will clean potable water be a problem in the future? Are we already there?

The Circle Of Confusion Continuity

Acircle of confusion is an optical spot caused by a cone of light rays from a lens not coming to a perfect focus when imaging a point source. Life sometimes seems out of focus, and you sometimes wonder what the blur is all about.

In the field of photography, the circle of confusion (CoC) is used to determine the depth of field (DOF). This is the distance between the nearest and farthest objects in a scene that appear acceptably sharp in an image.

Your angle of view may be different than mine.

Excuse me if I seem out of focus, I could possibly be posing a member of the Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge, or a man that keeps walking.

Indefatigably exploring new worlds and new civilizations, where no Art Nouveau has gone before. Seemingly out of focus but not out of touch, worlds of fashion away, processed in a New Wave mentality.

Where shall we go after the New Hollywood has faded?

Living in an age where Dystopian political situations seem prevalent; an economy with direct calculation substituting factor markets is the point of focus.

Typically, these movements are like films (Postmodernist film) that break down the cultural divide and with the goal of creating something that does not resemble the traditional narrative. In focus then out of focus.

A new narrative or paradigm is suggested. The circle of confusion continues.

Quick Baofeng UV5R Program Guide

New out of the box—one must visit the Idiots Guide to programming your Baofeng UV-5R radio (W7DTG). This guide is useful especially for using repeaters with tones. I’m mostly interested in programming simplex type applications, along with local emergency frequencies.

Sometimes I forget this simple process because I don’t do it very often. I will verify the reset procedure that is mentioned in the guide referenced above.

And The Satellite-Guidance System Takes Over

It was the GBU-43/B Massive Ordnance Air Blast (MOAB aka Mother of All Bombs) that was used on April 13, 2017 in Afghanistan. Designed to be delivered by a C-130 Hercules, MOAB is the most powerful conventional bomb ever used in combat as measured by the weight of its explosive material. Enter MOAB. This monster can be dropped by parachute from a C-130 before the satellite-guidance system takes over.

If you’re not living inside a vacuum tube you must have heard about this in the news.

Back in Nam it was the Daisy Cutter, and retired in 2008 to be replaced with the more powerful MOAB. It was used to clear heavily wooded areas.

The 2017 Nangarhar airstrike as it was called, gives reference to the “largest non-nuclear bomb in its arsenal”, as it was touted. The Achin District borders with Pakistan.

The primary crop in Achin is wheat, however Papaver somniferum can be found nearby in the Nangarhar Province.

The blast detonated at 7:32 pm local time in the Achin district of the eastern province of Nangarhar, according to sources.
