Trump Defends Kavanaugh in Crazy Press Conference Amid FBI Probe: A Closer Look - Late Night ...
zephr comments on Oct 2, 2018:
Ick. Bleh. Even if K is innocent, he clearly lies and is partisan. Even if Drumpf is doing a speck of good somewhere in government, he still openly lies and demeans people to their faces. Unprofessional is the bare minimum of what to call these throwbacks to the caveman era.

Ya,the Hospital Doctors wonder what's causing Cadmium poisoning, a real life threatening occurance.
phxbillcee replies on Oct 1, 2018:
Mechanism of toxicity Cadmium (Cd) is an extremely toxic industrial and environmental pollutant classified as a human carcinogen [Group 1 – according to International Agency for Research on Cancer;[14] Group 2a – according to Environmental Protection Agency (EPA); and 1B carcinogen classified by European Chemical Agency [15][16] Acute exposure to cadmium fumes may cause flu-like symptoms including chills, fever, and muscle ache sometimes referred to as "the cadmium blues." Symptoms may resolve after a week if there is no respiratory damage. More severe exposures can cause tracheo-bronchitis, pneumonitis, and pulmonary edema. Symptoms of inflammation may start hours after the exposure and include cough, dryness and irritation of the nose and throat, headache, dizziness, weakness, fever, chills, and chest pain. Inhaling cadmium-laden dust quickly leads to respiratory tract and kidney problems which can be fatal (often from renal failure). Ingestion of any significant amount of cadmium causes immediate poisoning and damage to the liver and the kidneys. Compounds containing cadmium are also carcinogenic.[17] The bones become soft (osteomalacia), lose bone mineral density (osteoporosis) and become weaker. This causes the pain in the joints and the back, and also increases the risk of fractures. In extreme cases of cadmium poisoning, mere body weight causes a fracture. The kidneys lose their function to remove acids from the blood in proximal renal tubular dysfunction. The kidney damage inflicted by cadmium poisoning is irreversible. The proximal renal tubular dysfunction creates low phosphate levels in the blood (hypophosphatemia), causing muscle weakness and sometimes coma. The dysfunction also causes gout, a form of arthritis due to the accumulation of uric acid crystals in the joints because of high acidity of the blood (hyperuricemia). Another side effect is increased levels of chloride in the blood (hyperchloremia). The kidneys can also shrink up to 30%. Cadmium exposure is also associated with the development of kidney stones. Similar to zinc, long term exposure to cadmium fumes can cause irreversible total loss of smell. Inside cells, cadmium ions act as a hydrogen peroxide generator. This sudden surge of cytosolic hydrogen peroxide causes increased lipid peroxidation and additionally depletes ascorbate and glutathione stores. Hydrogen peroxide can also convert thiol groups on proteins into nonfunctional sulfones and is also capable of directly attacking nuclear DNA. This oxidative stress causes the afflicted cell to manufacture large amounts of inflammatory cytokines.[18]
Good old DDT.

See Fork over Knife.....food for thought.
phxbillcee replies on Oct 1, 2018:
@Hitchens Oh, I 'believe' that death is the end. All we know at present seems to insist that this has to be the case. But, I don't 'know'. I attempt to live my life with the outlook that this is all we have & so let's make the best of it. & I surely don't think any of the 'afterlives' presented by any religion I've ever heard of are even close to reality. But I can't claim to know for a fact what happens at or after death. I think the present knowledge strongly suggests that no continuance is possible physically (matter or energy surviving) & being a monist I doubt a 'soul' as such exists, but I can't proclaim this as Truth, & not even really truth, just that odds are.
I hope you all had a great weekend...

Just as I don't believe in any god, I don't "know", just as I don't "know" what happens after death. As for music, for the site I grab from YT, but my library is substantial & I grab what I know.

VIEW PAGE IN TIMESMACHINE February 28, 1988, Page 006016 The New York Times Archives YOU PAYS YER mon-ey and you takes yer choice,'' I wrote in this space recently, using what I assumed to be an old Americanism meaning, as the oddsmakers say, ''Pick 'em.'' Mark Twain used the saying in 1884, at the end of chapter 28 of ''Huckleberry Finn,'' I am informed by Richard Bliss of New York City: ''. . . here's your two sets o' heirs to old Peter Wilks - and you pays your money and you takes your choice!'' The origin, as dozens of other Lexicographic Irregulars stepped forward to say, is British, probably Cockney. The first time the saying saw print was in an 1846 Punch. A cartoon entitled ''The Ministerial Crisis'' has a showman telling a customer, ''Which ever you please, my little dear. You pays your money, and you takes your choice.'' The phrase still means ''The right of choice is to the buyer,'' or a more sophisticated ''Power belongs to those who have paid their dues,'' but a much different sense has emerged. ''The phrase is used today,'' writes Edward C. Stephens, dean of Syracuse University's Newhouse School of Public Communications, ''not so much as an invitation to choice as it is a rejoinder to complaint. It seems to be similar in intent to 'You made your bed, now lie in it.' Another variant is 'Look, if you don't like it, you can just lump it.' '' A third meaning is ''Beats the hell out of me.'' In that regard, let us look at an even older cliche, butter wouldn't melt in her mouth. Continue reading the main story Advertisement Continue reading the main story
