Tips & Notices – March 2019

About “Tips”:

While I’m mostly interested in things having to do with:

Computer stuff, especially small single board computers
Making money, usually via trading
Weather and climate (“Global Warming” & “Climate Change”)
Quakes, Volcanoes, and other Earth Sciences
Current economic and political events
(often as those last three have impact on money and climate things…)
And just about any ‘way cool’ interesting science or technology
Oh, and lately, cars &
numerical computing / graphing with languages like Python & Julia ;-)

If something else is interesting to you, put a “tip” here as you like.

If there is a current Hot Topic for active discussion, try one of the Weekly Occasional Open Discussion pages here:

https://chiefio.wordpress.com/category/w-o-o-d/

You can also look at the list of “Categories” on the right hand side and get an idea of any other broad area of interest.

This ought not to be seen as a “limit” on what is “interesting”, more as a “focus list” with other things that are interesting being fair game as well.

The History:

Note that “pages” are the things reached from links on the top bar just under the pretty picture. “Postings” are reached from the listing along the right side of any given article (posting).

Since WordPress has decided that comments on Pages, like the Old Tips Pages, won’t show up in recent comments, it kind of breaks the value of it for me. In response, I shifted from a set of “pages” to a set of “postings”. As any given Tips Posting gets full, I’ll add a new one.

I have kept the same general format, with the T page (top bar) still pointing to both the archive of Tips Pages as well as the series of new Postings via a link to the TIPS category.

This is the next posting from prior Tips postings. Same idea, just a new set of space to put pointers to things of interest. The most immediately preceding Tips posting is:
https://chiefio.wordpress.com/2019/02/02/tips-notices-february-2019/
.

The generic “T” parent page remains up top, where older copies of the various “Tips” pages can be found archived. The Tips category (see list at right) marks Tips postings for easy location.

    Funny, Asthma is probably a loss of architecture in connective tissues due to low iodine.

    What does medicine do? Put bromide in asthma inhalers so you have to use it forever :P

    Medical iodophobia resulted in the thyroid hormone thyroxine replacing iodine in iodine deficiency-induced simple goiter and hypothyroidism. Thyroxine has been the most prescribed drug in the US for several years. So, the manufacturers of thyroxine benefited tremendously from this deception. It also resulted in the destruction of the thyroid gland by means of radioiodide in patients with hyperthyroidism caused by iodine deficiency, although this condition had previously been treated successfully with Lugol solution.3 The radioablation of the thyroid gland with radioiodide resulted in 90% of these patients becoming hypothyroid within the first year and eventually joining the ever-increasing thyroxine-consuming population.

    Supplying thyroid hormones to iodine-deprived individuals masks the iodine deficiency and can result in a zombie-like effect. The patients are capable of performing physical work but are not able to think and reason at maximum capacity. An even greater negative effect is realized if iodine deprivation is combined with goitrogen saturation, using the potent goitrogens bromide, fluoride, and perchlorate in the food and water supply.

    What happened to Wolf Effect with 7 grams of iodine a day :P? OMG the settled science didn’t happen when a different specialist uses it :P https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3754371/

    Hmmm interesting:

    https://www.caranddriver.com/news/a15340148/researchers-find-a-malicious-way-to-meddle-with-autonomous-cars/

    I bet this same method would allow spoofing license plate reader cameras to falsely identify that number on a plate. Which of course could lead to interesting results if applied by criminals and others who would want to plant a false travel track in the license reading system.

    What happens when a license plate reader system detects the same license plate number multiple times in places the same vehicle could not possibly go in the time allowed?

    And without thyroid hormones, you slow down to the point of death, so there’s that.

    If you do not take 10 times the RDI of iodine, the thyroid cannot make Iodinated lipids which eventually cause atherosclerosis, its not the cholesterol

    This is a great video.

    So essentially the TSH just determines whether the body makes more synporters to bring iodine into the tissue. The iodine effect on tissues alone is just as strong as thyroid hormones in many regards. There is too much focus on its effect just on the thyroid.

    The question is, does the TSH effect the synporters on all the cells in the body or just in the thyroid?

    This must be the mechanism of problems with people on thyroid hormones, as iodine is not corrected which is the initial problem and iodine does not just effect the thyroid it effects all cells particular glandular cells.

    So I wonder, if the TSH is suppressed, does it stop iodide getting into the cells (but not iodine)?

    Wow – statistically how does that work?
    Great collection of nonsense news items which in isolation are eye catching but when lumped together scream “stupid”.
