Been watchan, Parishioners,

Diagnosis: Murder (TV series 1993–2001)

(a most guilty pleasure)

 

In this one particular episode,

Blood Ties (#6.21, 1999)

I notice A Delightful Little Chipmunk!

 

Kathy Evison!

 

 a *most* delightful little chipmunk!

Date of Birth: 16 January 1963, Boulder City, Nevada, USA
Birth Name: Kathleen G. Evison
Height: 5′ 9″ (1.75 m)

Kathy Evison’s father is employee of the National Park Service. By the age of 18 she had moved with her family as much as 20 times from one park to another, including Grand Canyon, Sequoia and her favorite: Grand Tetons. She financed her college education by modeling, including appearances all over the world in television commercials and magazines like Shape [Shape, Parishioners!],  Self and Seventeen. She graduated cum laude with a degree in ***rhetoric*** [Parishioners!] from the University of California at Davis. After her decision to switch to acting, she appeared at first in two Spelling productions: “The Heights” (1992) and “Beverly Hills, 90210” (1990) before she got a regular in “SeaQuest DSV” (1993).

Pimp Milton Wilder is shot in an alley by women. An embezzled businessman who finds his partner also cheated him with his wife fails to kill him, follows the paramedics to Community General and fails again in Jesse’s OR because of a crazily daring intervention from Steve’s LAPD colleague detective Taylor Lucas, the new partner of more orthodox rising vice squad star Amy Devlin, detailed to assist Steve in the Wilder case, but first they must arrest bail-jumper Laurette Stipe in a biker bar, which leads to a gun-fight killing Stipe with a bullet matching the Wilder murder, as it was planted by Lucas who was among his killers.

[that, Parishioners, is one sentence!]

Their investigation and deception go on, till they come too close to Mark, who works out the medical link between the victims and its relevance, while the killers…

A more concise synopsis:

Episode Score:  8.4 Great

16 votes

Absurdly bland episode lacks the usual Goldberg/Rabkin sizzle. Two female vice-officers uncover four corrupt female homicide cops who murder felons to harvest their organs for those more deserving.

Plot

Two female vice-unit detectives — the calm and professional Detective Amy Devlin (Evison) and her hotheaded partner, Detective Taylor Lucas (McLellan), a former special agent for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives — are investigating the murder of local pimp Milton Wilder and uncover a conspiracy by four corrupt female police officers who murder felons (including Wilder and Laurette Stipe, a bail-jumping gunrunner biker Devlin and Taylor were pursuing) to harvest their organs for the most-seriously-ill patients using the Violent Criminal Apprehension Program (VICAP) DNA database of felons and the organ-donor registry.

The episode Blood Ties was filmed as a pilot episode for a spin off series called Whistlers which would have starred her and Zoe McLellan.  Ultimately, the show wasn’t picked up by the network…

I started referring to Henderson as 'The Sea Slut'

The Mars Bar Project

7/11/11

Been pondering, Parishioners,

‘pon Mars Bars…

usually being found in the imported or ethnic food sections


Now, while there is great confusion

(Chocolate bars sold as Mars vary in different regions of the world)

due to the various names – apparently known as a Milky Way in the US

and formulations – see lists o’ ingredients at the Institute of Candy Controversies

in Finland and other Nordic Countries, a standard Mars Bar weighs 47g

Dr C & I concerned ourselves with the Australian vershun –

similar to the UK & Canadian.

 

 

Now; we were wondering

whether each Mars bar is unique –

that is, would the pattern of chocolate on the top

be like a fingerprint -

or would they all be the same -

as if stamped from a mould.

blessing the experiment

To this end,

we purchased four bars –

(while the Mars family may be among the world’s billionaires,

we paid only $1 each for these –

they can afford to absorb the loss…)

two from a batch with a best-before date of 11-06-12

and two from a 21-05-12 batch,

thus covering both intra- and inter-batch variation.

 

 

The results are shown below:

Each bar an individual which can never be replicated;

Happy Bday Desi!

7/10/11

Yes, Parishioners,
today is the 80th birthday of The Great Desi Tutu!

 

If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor

From Wikipedia:

Desmond Mpilo Tutu is a South African activist and retired Anglican bishop who rose to worldwide fame during the 1980s as an opponent of apartheid. He was the first black South African Archbishop of Cape Town, South Africa and primate of the Church of the Province of Southern Africa (now the Anglican Church of Southern Africa).

 

Tutu has been active in the defence of human rights and uses his high profile to campaign for the oppressed. He has campaigned to fight [among other thangs] AIDS, tuberculosis, homophobia, transphobia, poverty and racism.

 

[Among other Honours] Tutu received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1984, the Albert Schweitzer Prize for Humanitarianism in 1986, the Pacem in Terris Award in 1987, the Sydney Peace Prize (1999), the Gandhi Peace Prize in 2005, and the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2009.

a childlike, boyish, impish, mischievousness

Most recently:
Desmond Tutu, still tackling authorities at 80

The Nobel Peace Prize winner, known fondly as the “Arch“, is at fresh odds with authorities whom he has blasted as worse than the apartheid regime for kowtowing to trade ally China by not issuing a visa to the Dalai Lama [another o' my favourite people] for his birthday.

Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible.

 

Also, Happy Bday Yo-Yo Ma!

The Ubiquitous Triclosan

6/10/11

Evil lurks, Parishioners,
in our household goods.

I have recently been alerted
(The Ubiquitous Triclosan, by Aviva Glaser)

on your dishes, all over your body

to The Terror That Is Triclosan!!!

 

5-chloro-2-(2,4-dichlorophenoxy)phenol, 2,4,4′-trichloro-2′-hydroxydiphenyl ether, 5-chloro-(2,4-dichlorophenoxy)phenol, trichloro-2′-hydroxydiphenyl ether, Microban, Irgasan DP-300, Lexol 300, Ster-Zac, Cloxifenolum, Biofresh CH-3565, Lexol 300, Irgasan DP 300.

 

Triclosan is a white powdered solid with a slight aromatic/phenolic odor. It is a chlorinated aromatic compound that has functional groups representative of both ethers and phenols. Triclosan is only slightly soluble in water, but soluble in ethanol, methanol, diethyl ether, and strong basic solutions such as 1M sodium hydroxide. Triclosan can be synthesized from 2,4-dichlorophenol. Some common impurities are: 2,4-dichlorophenol, 3-chlorophenol, 4-chlorophenol, 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin, 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-furan, 2,8-dichlorobenzo-furan, 2,8-dichlorobenzo-p-dioxin, 1,3,7-trichlorodibenzo-p-dioxin and 2,4,8-trichlorodibenzo-furan.

CAS # 3380-34-5
“There is a disinfectant showing up in hundreds of common consumer products that is raising serious cause for concern. The chemical, Triclosan, is a synthetic, broad-spectrum antimicrobial agent that in recent years has exploded onto the consumer market in a wide variety of antibacterial soaps, deodorants, toothpastes, cosmetics, fabrics, plastics, and other products. Studies have increasingly linked Triclosan to a range of health and environmental effects, from skin irritation, allergy susceptibility, bacterial and compounded antibiotic resistant, and dioxin contamination to destruction of fragile aquatic ecosystems.

Fabuloso!
According to the American Medical Association, “Despite their recent proliferation in consumer products, the use of antimicrobial agents such as Triclosan in consumer products has not been studied extensively. No data exist to support their efficacy when used in such products or any need for them…it may be prudent to avoid the use of antimicrobial agents in consumer products…”

You heard it here, Parishioners!

helps prevent cavities • gingivitis • plaque
Triclosan is an ingredient added to many consumer products to reduce or prevent bacterial contamination.
It may be found in products such as clothing, kitchenware, furniture, and toys. It also may be added to antibacterial soaps and body washes, toothpastes, and some cosmetics.

 

In 1997, FDA reviewed extensive effectiveness data on Triclosan in Colgate Total toothpaste. The evidence showed that Triclosan in this product was effective in preventing gingivitis.

The symptoms of gingivitis are somewhat non-specific

Animal studies have shown that Triclosan alters hormone regulation

The overall survival rate for conjoined twins is approximately 25%

Triclosan is so ubiquitous that it is found in the urine of 75 percent of the population, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

 

Recent scientific studies raise questions about whether Triclosan disrupts the body’s endocrine system and whether it helps to create bacteria that are resistant to antibiotics.
Edward J. Markey, Democrat from Massachusetts, wants Triclosan banned from all products designed for children and any product that comes into contact with food. Other countries have banned or restricted use of the chemical.

 

Brian Sansoni of the Soap and Detergent Association, which represents the $30 billion U.S. cleaning products industry, said “It’s more important than ever that consumers continue to have access to these products. It’s a time of increased threats from disease and germs!”

 

Brian Sansoni, spokesman for the American Cleaning Institute, said the evidence against Triclosan was hardly convincing.

Fashion Stylist Note: We try our best to keep our Ajax Online Catalog updated with new designer fashions and accessories

Triclosan was developed as a surgical scrub for medical professionals. It is also used in pesticides. It can be found in everything!

 

The FDA has been working for 38 years to establish the rules for the use of Triclosan but has not completed that task.
A 2006 study concluded that low doses of Triclosan act as an endocrine disruptor in the North American bullfrog.

The frog was reportedly found at a children's day nursery in the English village of Weston Super-Mare

 

Reports have suggested that Triclosan can combine with chlorine in tap water to form chloroform.

 

Triclosan is a chlorophenol, a class of chemicals which is suspected of causing cancer in humans. Externally, phenol can cause a variety of skin irritations. Taken internally, phenol can lead to cold sweats, circulatory collapse, convulsions, coma and death. Additionally, chlorinated hydrocarbon pesticides can be stored in body fat, accumulating to toxic levels. Long term exposure to pesticides damages the liver, kidneys, heart and lungs, suppresses the immune system, and causes hormonal disruption, paralysis, sterility and brain haemorrhages.

Endurance condoms contain a special lubricant that helps to control climax and prolong male sexual excitement
Dioxins, PCBs, chlorophenols and many pesticides are persistent organic pollutants. They persist in the environment and accumulate to higher and higher concentrations with each step up the food chain. Every creature on earth has these pollutants in its body fat. Once absorbed into the fat cells, it is nearly impossible to eliminate these compounds. Triclosan is among this class of chemicals, and humans are among the animals at the top of the food chain. The health risks are considerable.

could Old Spice have prevented this?

For Triclosan, the science is changing” said Doug Throckmorton, deputy director of the FDA’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research.

A Better Life – Part Two

11/8/11

As previously noted, Parishioners,

A Better Life is possible.

how many lightbulbs -  no; that's not right...

Here are some more Rules:

 

Live simply

Care deeply

Speak kindly

Love generously

generous to a fault

When loved ones come home, always run to greet them

Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride

The Joi of Riding

Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure Ecstasy

Pure. Ecstacy.

Take naps

Stretch before rising

Run, romp, and play daily

Thrive on attention and let people touch you

I wanna feel dirty...

Avoid biting when a simple growl will do

On warm days, stop to lie on your back on the grass

On hot days, drink lots of water and lie under a shady tree

mmm; cool, clear water...

When you’re happy, dance around and wag your entire body

Delight in the simple joy of a long walk

Be loyal

Arnold swears to Be Loyal

Never pretend to be something you’re not

If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it

THIS is what I want

When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by, and nuzzle them gently

ENJOY EVERY MOMENT OF EVERY DAY!

Every Precious Moment

 

Simple, isn’t it?

Hiroshima Day 2011

6/8/11

Hiroshima Day, Parishioners (教区民),

comes ’round again

burned man

and,

once more,

we commemorate

the first use of nuclear power

in the destruction

of Hiroshima

and Nagasaki

and the Parishioners therein.

the tera still stands

The radius of total destruction was about one mile (1.6 km), with resulting fires across 4.4 square miles (11 km2). Americans estimated that 4.7 square miles (12 km2) of the city were destroyed. Japanese officials determined that 69% of Hiroshima’s buildings were destroyed and another 6–7% damaged. 70,000 – 80,000 people, or some 30% of the population of Hiroshima were killed immediately, and another 70,000 injured.

The Great Hiroshima Cover-up

A *lengthy* and revealing article and some video (c/Boing Boing)

THIS site has some *beautiful* photos!

When the first atomic bomb was dropped over Hiroshima on August 6, 1945, the city became known worldwide for this unenviable distinction. The destructive power of the bomb was tremendous and obliterated nearly everything within a 2 km radius. One of the few buildings that remained standing afterwards has been preserved; known today as the A-Bomb Dome, it is a monument to the bomb’s dreadful power.

After the war, great efforts were taken to rebuild the city. Predictions that the city would be uninhabitable proved false. Destroyed monuments of Hiroshima’s historical heritage, like Hiroshima Castle and Shukkeien Garden, were reconstructed. In the center of the city a large park was built and given a name that would reflect the aspirations of the re-born city: Peace Memorial Park.

Kegel

3/8/11

Arnold H. Kegel  M.D., F.A.C.S. (1894–1981) was a gynecologist, Parishioners, who invented the Kegel Perineometer (used for measuring vaginal air pressure) and Kegel exercises (squeezing of the muscles of the pelvic floor) as non-surgical treatment of genital relaxation. Today pelvic floor exercises are widely held as first-line treatment for urinary stress incontinence and female genital prolapse.

how's my vaginal air pressure?

CONSPIRACY, Parishioners!

What Your Doctor Is Not Telling You!

In the 1940’s, gynecologist Arnold Kegel discovered that stronger P.C.’s (Pubococcygeus) meant better bladder control for women. Dubbed Kegels, his simple exercises – tensing and relaxing the P.C.’s also had a welcoming side effect: heightened pleasure during intercourse.

heightened sexual pleasure!

Dr. Kegel never intended the so called “Kegel Exercises” to be performed without the biofeedback device. Suggesting that a woman simply do “Kegels” provides minimal results. See The Bastardization Of Dr. Kegel’s Exercises by By John D. Perry, PhD & Leslie Talcott Hullett, MS, RN.

Kegel exercises were originally developed as a method of controlling incontinence in women following childbirth. These exercises are now recommended for women with urinary stress incontinence. The principle behind Kegel exercises is to strengthen the muscles of the pelvic floor, thereby improving the urethral and/or rectal sphincter function. However, without the biofeedback device, Kegel exercises alone, just don’t work.

The Kegel Master -Your Sexuality is Your Power!

The demand for relief from incontinence has spawned a multi-billion dollar market for pharmaceutical companies, doctors, and diaper manufacturers. Because of this fact, any effective solution is unpalatable to the medical community. Medicines, diapers, and surgery are much more profitable.

 

Thanx, God!

AND, Brothers,

it’s not just for The Ladeez:

You will be able to have better sex by being able to better control your orgasms and ejaculations, and last for longer,

plus you may get the added kudos of being able to hold up a wet towel with your erection if you practice these Kegel exercises for men.

How do I know where my PC muscles are?

The easiest way to find them is to stop your flow of urine next time you go to the bathroom.

Another way to isolate them is to put your finger inside your anus;

when you contract the right muscles, your anus will tighten.

 

MOREOVER, Brothers, PROSTATE HEALTH!

keep your balls alive!
