Physical quantity that expresses hot and cold
After a big week of upsets and surprising wins, we dive into what this means for some of the league's most polarizing teams and players. Which teams are ice cold? Heating up? On fire? No, this is not beer pong! We also discuss some start and sit options with players who have been down and some sleepers you should watch for!
We're back on our travel nursing contract, guys! And we're happy to inform you that we're finally in the same hospital and same shift. Although we're still floating a lot around the hospital, we don't mind. That's not going to change working this contract! For our first three nights, Peter got floated first. On my first day, I was able to bypass orientation, which was interesting. Although our contracts were the same, mine was a new one while Peter extended his. I had some issues with gaining access, but thank goodness I came to work half an hour earlier. Understand that as travel nurses, things like these happen. You will always be looking for something or settling minor issues along the way. In fact, expect friction because as a nurse, there's always going to be something going on that you need to troubleshoot. For this debriefing episode, we'll share with you some of our patient experiences, starting with the patient I had who was in the hospital for 180 days. This particular patient was very sick and was hospitalized for a while. Her family had a hard time letting her go, and her daughters were in conflict when it came to her care, which made it more complicated. Eventually, they settled for comfort care. Long story short, the patient passed, and her family had issues about being uninformed about it. Unfortunately, nurses are not fortune tellers, we cannot predict the exact moment our patient will take their last breath, right? To find out more about what happened next, watch this full episode!

Much has happened on and off the blue carpet since we were last here, not least Bermuda's very own Flora Duffy making history by becoming the first triathlete to win both the Olympic and World titles in the same year, becoming Bermuda's first ever Olympic gold medallist and more recently the first to defend a Commonwealth Games triathlon title. This weekend, we return to the island for the penultimate Championship Series racing of 2022, and elite men's and women's events that have the potential to make a huge impact on the battles to become this year's World Triathlon Champions. The triathlon world's eyes will be fixed on this beautiful corner of the Atlantic and can expect another dose of high-octane entertainment from the world's best athletes. The island will also host a wealth of Age-Group and kids triathlon races, and it is always gratifying to see our sport continuing to grow among so many people at all levels of the sport. It is precisely these weekends that will inspire future generations to take up the magic of swim bike run and that can be the spark behind the fire of the next Flora Duffy. Bermuda has a strong and important history of triathlon and also with the WTCS, having hosted many professional events since 1987, including three WTCS (formerly ITU World Cups) in the 90's where Flora Duffy, Olympic gold medalist and multiple World Champion, watched as a young aspiring triathlete. Age Group - Saturday, November 5th 8am Elite Men - Sunday, November 6th 11am Elite Women - Sunday, November 6th 2pm Temperature in November varies between an average high of 74 degrees to a low of 67 degrees Fahrenheit.

Endurance News: Taylor Knibb Powers to Victory at 2022 Ironman 70.3 World Championships It was the Taylor Knibb show at the 2022 Ironman 70.3 World Championship in St. George as the 24 year-old American put on a master class of racing to take her first-ever 70.3 World title. A master class in racing was held in St. George, Utah this morning during the women's pro race at the Ironman 70.3 World Championship. The instructor: 24 year-old Taylor Knibb, who delivered a confident and commanding swim, bike, and run to take the win in 4:03:20. The Swim Lucy Charles-Barclay and Lotte Wilms finish the women's pro swim leg during the 2022 IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship. After much speculation about whether or not the swim would be shortened after a cold front moved through southern Utah on race week, race morning arrived with 63 degree F water temperatures and the full 1.2-mile swim. Naturally, many assumed this would work to the advantage of defending champion Lucy Charles-Barclay, who is known for building a considerable lead in any swim leg she races. But instead of surging to the front as usual, she found she had company: Lotte Wilms of the Netherlands and American Taylor Knibb were on her feet. At the halfway point, Wilms surged to attempt a pass, and Charles-Barclay matched her speed; Knibb held on in the draft, eventually reeling the two back in. The trio powered through to the swim exit, with Charles-Barclay's 23:50 swim split just barely edging out Wilms' 23:51 at the first timing mat; Knibb followed in 23:54. The Bike With air temperatures hovering around 38 degrees F at the start of the bike leg, it was clear the race would belong to the one who could best manage the cold. Clad in gloves and thermal cycling attire, Knibb wasted no time taking charge on the bike leg, moving to the front within the first mile. With an average speed of 28.2 MPH in the first 20 miles, Knibb's lead only grew: one minute at mile 10, 2:30 at mile 20. But Knibb wasn't the only one moving quickly. Duffy also pushed hard in the initial miles of the bike, shooting out of the rolling hills of Sand Hollow with laser-like focus to move into second place by mile 10. Behind her, India Lee (GBR) and Findlay were the only athletes to match Knibb's blistering pace, and they were each rewarded with a Duffy pass and a turn at second place before mile 30. At mile 40, Charles made her move, pushing back into second place with Findlay and Duffy close behind as they entered Snow Canyon. Lawrence, spent from the cold and the early charge, was unable to respond and fell behind. Within the walls of Snow Canyon, Knibb's lead only grew. With almost five minutes on the chase pack, the young American sailed up the notoriously steep climbs; behind her, Findlay, then Duffy, then Charles-Barclay (again) attempted to drop the hammer, but no one was willing to give up the fight. As the three crested Snow Canyon and powered to T2, they were greeted by Knibb, who was already well into the run course. The message was unspoken, but clear: Knibb's impossibly fast 2:14:41 bike split had given her a lead of six minutes and 44 seconds. The Run From the first steps out of T2, it was clear that Knibb saw the run as a mere formality to the win. With a consistent 5:58 min/mile pace, Knibb's lead grew – and grew, and grew. By mile 4, she had more than 7:30 over her closest competition. Though the victory was all but decided, there was still an intense race going on to see who would get boxed out of the podium. Duffy, Findlay, and Charles-Barclay ran as a pack, each daring the others to make a move. At the halfway point, Charles-Barclay began to fall back, and Duffy's form began to show signs of fatigue. Findlay, sensing it was time to make a move, began to slowly pull ahead. Over the course of the next three miles, she was able to put in more than 40 seconds on Duffy and Charles. But an out-and-back section of the course revealed that those two weren't the only competitors Findlay had to worry about – a hard-charging Pallant-Browne was clocking 5:56 min/mile splits in hopes of running her way from ninth place off the bike and onto the final podium. She made easy work of it, overtaking Duffy and Charles in the final mile of the race. In the end, Knibb's 1:21:48 run and 4:03:20 finishing time was more than enough to stamp her name on the history books as the youngest woman to win the title of Ironman 70.3 World Champion. Findlay followed in 4:08:57, and Pallant-Browne rounded out the podium with a run split of 1:17:45 and an overall finishing time of 4:10:45. A Rollercoaster 70.3 World Championship, Kristian Blummenfelt Holds on for the Win A relentlessly close swim, a controversial penalty, and a run battle for the ages - the pro men's race at the 2022 Ironman 70.3 World Championship was a high-stakes, high-drama affair that had viewers on the edge of their seats from the very start to the very finish. A relentlessly close swim, a controversial penalty, and a run battle for the ages – the pro men's race at the 2022 Ironman 70.3 World Championship was a high-stakes, high-drama affair that had viewers on the edge of their seats from the very start to the very finish. The moment of catharsis came in the form of a Kristian Blummenfelt victory in a staggering 3:37:12 on one of the toughest courses on the 70.3 circuit. Men's Race: The Swim With water temperatures at 62 degrees F and air temperatures at 40 degrees F, the theme of the day was the same as the women's race prior: managing the cold conditions of late fall in southern Utah. Aussie Aaron Royle set the pace, with Americans Ben Kanute and Marc Dubrick hot on his heels. Royle emerged from the water first in 22:20, followed by Marc Dubric and Ben Kanute. But what came next was a rare sight in middle-distance racing: In the span of only 20 seconds, a pack of 19 athletes rushed out of the water as if one unit. It was no surprise, then, that T1 was a bit of a circus, with athletes jockeying for position. The pack, which included Denmark's Miki Taagholt and Magnus Ditlev, Norwegians Kristian Blummenfelt and Gustav Iden, Americans Eric Lagerstrom and Jason West, Germans Mikia Noodt and Frederic Funk, and Canadian Brent McMahon, rushed out of transition as quickly as they entered. Two minutes down from the lead, another chase pack formed, this one containing Canadian Jackson Laundry and American Sam Long. In 34th and 40th place, respectively, it was clear that if they wanted a fighting chance at the podium, they were going to have to put in some big work on the bike to catch their competition. The Bike Blummenfelt had no intention of sitting in the pack and watching the race unfold in front of him. He pushed hard from the very start, setting out at a burning pace of 28 mile per hour in the rolling hills out of Sand Hollow. Sam Long, who had ridden his way from 40th to 8th place in the first 20 miles, was the one who took the hit. After getting caught in a tight spot during a pass involving Laundry, Long found himself with a controversial call-out from the referee and a five-minute stand-down in the penalty box. With a gap of 2:25 and an enormous chase pack of 18 athletes close together whizzing past the yellow penalty tent, Long was visibly upset. The pack emerged from Snow Canyon and descended with reckless abandon, barreling toward T2 at 39 miles per hour. Ditlev tucked in tight and tried to get any advantage he could, entering T2 with a bike split of 1:49:59, nine seconds ahead of Blummenfelt and Funk. But that advantage was erased in transition as Blummenfelt moved from bike to run in a seamless 29 seconds while Ditlev floundered for nearly twice that amount of time. In the end, it was Blu who started the run first. Would this mistake cost Ditlev the race? The Run Though Blummenfelt set out at a 5:47 minute-per-mile pace, his lead didn't last long. At mile 2, he had company in the form of Kanute, who was throwing down 5:16 splits. As he passed Blummenfelt, Kanute turned the screws even more, dropping the pace to a staggering 4:55 minutes per mile. But this didn't shake Blummenfelt, who stayed right on his heels and let Kanute drive the pace for the next eight miles. The effort allowed the two to pull away from the rest of the field. At the five-mile point, the pair had build a 40 second lead over Ditlev and more than two minutes on Funk, Noodt, and Taagholt. But bridging the gap to the front was not the priority for the chase pack – instead, it was holding off a hard-charging Laundry, who was making quick work of moving from eighth off the bike to fifth place. Could he run his way into a podium spot? And then, a dramatic twist: At mile six, Iden simply stopped, sat on the curb, and said “No more.” As he removed his race bib and exited the course, the residual fatigue from his Ironman World Championship victory three weeks prior was evident; defending his 70.3 title was simply not in the cards this year. It would be up to his friend and countryman to bring home the win. Blummenfelt stepped up to the challenge. With only three miles to go, he made his move, taking two steps around Kanute and forging ahead. This time, there was no looking over his shoulder – Blummenfelt was laser-focused on the finish line. His stride opened up, and he pulled away, opening up a gap of more than 20 seconds in less than a mile. All the shell-shocked Kanute could do was watch the Norwegian disappear into the horizon. With a half-smile, half-grimace on his face, Blummenfelt thundered to the finish line at a pace of 4:36 minutes per mile. It was only in the final stretch to the finish line that he relaxed, offering waves and high-fives to the crowd on his way to a run split of 1:11:39 and a final finishing time of 3:37:12.

“When it comes to refrigeration, so many of us have just come to accept that that's how things are done. But I think in the food sovereignty conversation, those dependencies can sometimes be overlooked when we're talking about what it means to become sovereign.” In this episode, we welcome Hiʻilei Julia Kawehipuaakahaopulani Hobart (Kanaka Maoli), who is Assistant Professor of Native and Indigenous Studies at Yale University. An interdisciplinary scholar, she researches and teaches on issues of settler colonialism, environment, and Indigenous sovereignty. Her first book, Cooling the Tropics: Ice, Indigeneity, and Hawaiian Refreshment is a recipient of the press's Scholars of Color First Book Award. Some of the topics we explore in this conversation include the symbolism of ice and shaved ice in Hawai'i, the establishment of the cold chain as an integral part of the global food system, provocations about the anthropocentric desire to control ambient temperatures, and more.

Unless otherwise noted, all Web addresses mentioned were functional as of 10-28-22. TRANSCRIPT OF AUDIO From the Cumberland Gap to the Atlantic Ocean, this is Virginia Water Radio, with a special episode for Halloween 2022. This episode is part of series this year of episodes related to trees and shrubs. SOUND – ~5 sec and fade - Tree creaking in wind. Creaking wood is often part of a scary Halloween soundscape of dark forests or old houses. Does that creaking have anything to do with water? That's one of five questions this episode poses, challenging you to make connections among Halloween, tree parts, and water. After each question, you'll have about three seconds of some Halloween music to consider your answer. Good luck, and I hope you do TREE-mendously. No. 1. Scary human skeletons are a common Halloween feature. In humans and other animals, skeletons support the body. What part of trees, through which water and nutrients are transported, functions as the trees' structural support? MUSIC - ~3 sec. That's the xylem, also called the wood, which makes up the bulk of a tree trunk. No. 2. Blood is a featured in many a frightful Halloween scene or costume. Blood is a water-based fluid that humans and other animals use to transport oxygen, energy molecules, and other biochemicals to body parts. What part of the tree carries energy molecules and other biochemicals to tree parts? MUSIC - ~3 sec. That's the phloem, which makes up a relatively thin layer just under a tree's bark. No. 3. Ghosts or other specters are often depicted in white or black. How do light and dark colors affect water in a tree? MUSIC - ~3 sec. Dark colors in or around trees absorb more solar radiation and therefore can increase temperature. The light color or some trees, such some birches, can help reduce this effect. Temperature, along with humidity, affects water movement into and out of trees, particularly by affecting transpiration, that is, the evaporation of water from plant parts. No. 4. Wind whistling through trees is weather people often associate with Halloween nights. How does wind affect the water in a tree? MUSIC - ~3 sec. Wind can increase transpiration both by bringing drier air to leaves and by moving away air that has absorbed moisture from the leaves. And no. 5. Back to creaking wood. How does water or dryness affect sounds in wood? MUSIC - ~3 sec. In wooden houses, creaking can result from temperature and humidity changes that swell or shrink the wood. In trees, a crackling or popping sound—detected by scientists using microphones placed next to tree trunks—can result from air bubbles within the tree trunk, caused by tree dehydration. Incidentally, frequent creaking sounds in trees may be an indicator of weak tree structure, so a creaking tree sometimes not only sounds scary but also is reason to be wary. I hope your Halloween this year and in years to come includes fun and functional trees along with adequate good water for them and for you. We close with the full 50 seconds of the Halloween music you've heard during the questions. Here's “A Little Fright Music,” composed for Virginia Water Radio by Torrin Hallett, currently with the Symphonic Orchestra of the State of Mexico. MUSIC – ~50 sec – instrumental. SHIP'S BELL Virginia Water Radio is produced by the Virginia Water Resources Research Center, part of Virginia Tech's College of Natural Resources and Environment.

29 Ottobre 2022 - Italiano in Podcast. Puntata di Italiano in Podcast di venerdì e metà sabato. Una lezione in tarda serata che ha spostato il podcast al sabato pomeriggio con un episodio per raccontare una giornata e mezza. Lezioni, impegni, lavoro sul progetto, ma soprattutto l'ennesimo ultimo tuffo in questo ottobre sempre più incredibile. Temperature quasi estive e un mare fantastico a cui non si può resistere. Qualche notizia ma soprattutto il centenario di un evento storico di cui noi italiani non siamo orgogliosi. Il 28 ottobre 2022 c'è stato infatti il centenario della "marcia su Roma", un evento che ha dato inizio al ventennio fascista e ha segnato la storia d'Italia trascinandola nella tragedia della seconda guerra mondiale. Per chiudere un aforisma di uno dei più grandi personaggi italiani della storia, fondamentale per la lingua italiana.

Tick tock, it's time for this week's EYE ON NPI - this week we're on time and on budget with the EPSON RX4901CE and RX8901CE Real-Time Clocks. (https://www.digikey.com/en/product-highlight/e/epson/rx4901ce-and-rx8901ce-real-time-clocks). These are two affordable yet ultra-high high precision temperature compensated Real Time Clocks - from EPSON who are well known for their quality crystal offerings (https://www.digikey.com/short/b0t2j2c5). Accurate time-keeping is something folks ask us about a lot - it's a lot harder than most people think! (It's sorta up there with voice recognition and 3D-indoor-spacial-tracking with "things that seem really common but actually are super tough) Most folks are used to alarm clocks that use the power line 60Hz sine wave to keep track of seconds, we've done that for plug-in clocks for almost a century (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electric_clock) And while the utility's mains frequency does fluctuate with load, its compensated overnight so average out to a near-perfect 60Hz (http://leapsecond.com/pages/mains/). If you don't have access to that 60Hz calibrated signal, say because you're battery powered, or using a switching supply, you have a few options for externally-validated time keeping. Some folks like the WWVB radio-signal (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WWVB) synchronization modules (https://www.sparkfun.com/products/retired/10060) that receive an atomic-clock-accurate signal from Colorado. Others like to use a GPS module, which will get atomic-clock-accurate signals from spaaaaaaaaaace (https://www.adafruit.com/product/4279), finally of course, if you have Internet connectivity you can get time from NTP (https://www.ntppool.org/en/). All of these require a lot of power, and for GPS you need to have an outside antenna - or at least close to a window. WWVB works best in the middle of the country, but we've always had a little difficulty in a NYC apartment. If you want low-power or battery-powered time stamping and logging, a real time clock is the way to go. But these chips aren't sync'd to some global standard and they tend to have a lot of drift (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clock_drift) - seconds a day, which adds up! This is due to the timing crystal having some variation, usually 10 to 20 ppm. 20 parts-per-million is the same as 20 / 1,000,000 * (24 * 60 * 60 seconds/day) = 1.7 s/day variability, or about a minute a month. So it really can add up! The RTC counter circuitry itself is perfectly accurate, so if we could make sure the crystal was perfect, we'd have no timing issues. To do that, we have to account for the temperature...thus bringing forth the invention of the TCXO Temperature Compensated Xtal Oscillator (https://www5.epsondevice.com/en/products/tcxo/) something that Epson is really good at making! So it's no surprise that they've packaged an RTC chip into one of their crystal-sized enclosures to create a sealed high precision RTC. And the price is really good too! We often see TCXO RTC's for $6-$8, whereas the Epson RX8901CE are $3.25 in quantity and they're also nice and compact, 3x2x2.5mm in size. (https://www.digikey.com/short/mw38mqrz) Both the Epson RX8901CE I2C version (https://www.digikey.com/short/z4rhvbw0) and the RX8901CE SPI version (https://www.digikey.com/short/hmwj9djc) are in stock right now for immediate shipment from Digi-Key! Order today and you'll get it by tomorrow afternoon - so you can stick to your production schedule with a tip-top RTC that won't waste your time.

On this week's The Sci-Files, your hosts, Chelsie and Danny interview Emily Greeson. Emily works in the Microbiology and Molecular Genetics department in the Contag lab at Michigan State University. Her work focuses on studying and engineering genes in bacteria to create new functions. Recently, Emily has been working on Bacillus subtilis, a soil bacterium, and adding temperature-sensitive repressors to it to control protein production. Temperature-sensitive repressors respond to changes in temperature by stopping protein production at lower temperatures and allowing proteins to be produced at higher temperatures. The Contag lab has taken the bacteria with these temperature-sensitive repressors one step further and combined them with magnetic nanoparticles and electromagnetic fields to create a new system. After graduation, Emily hopes to focus more on science communication and education, including working at the MSU Museum CoLab Studio in the 1.5 Celsius exhibition.If you're interested in discussing your MSU research on the radio or nominating a student, please email Chelsie and Danny at firstname.lastname@example.org.

What's Yours? Emerson just walked into my office zipping up his camo winter jacket to go with his camo pants. He told me: “It's COLD! It's 52 degrees out this morning!” Fall arrived in a hurry out here in Austin and we went from the 100's to the 90's to, for former Californians, chilly quickly! Now… Emerson and I have a new joke—which is why I replied by saying, “Oh!! 52 degrees—that's my all-time favorite temperature!” To which he laughed and said, “Dadddddddyyyyy. EVERY temperature is your favorite temperature.” That's true. My favorite temperature? It's always EXACTLY what the temperature is at that moment. Which gets us a little closer to the point of Today's +1. Let's step back for a moment and set some context. Michael Singer has become one of my absolute favorite teachers. Although I very much enjoyed The Untethered Soul (check out those Notes), it wasn't until my friend Joe Okleberry sent me a picture of him and Michael that I picked up this book. Now, I didn't have to go far to pick it up as Alexandra had been raving about him for months. The book was literally on our kitchen table. With the two of them extolling his awesomeness, I decided to join the party. And, I'm very glad I did. We'll talk more about his wisdom soon. For now, as you know if you've read his stuff, THE central Big Idea to ALL of his work is, essentially, to QUIT ARGUING WITH REALITY. As he says: “Suffering is caused by the contrast between what you mentally decided you want and the reality unfolding in front of you. To whatever degree they don't match, you suffer.” In our next +1, we'll talk about something he calls “low-hanging fruit” that will help us PRACTICE reducing our suffering by “surrendering” to reality. For now… One of my favorite prompts to practice? The weather. Arguing with the WEATHER is one of the most ridiculous things we can do—which is why Emerson and I have that new joke. Here's the origin story… Emerson was telling me how much he loved the 80-degree-ish fall temperature here in Austin. He asked me what my favorite temperature is. I told him: “The temperature RIGHT NOW is ALWAYS my ABSOLUTE favorite.” 102 degrees and Austin humid? Perfect. My all-time favorite temperature. Free sauna. 51 degree cold plunge? Perfect. My all-time favorite temperature. Rebooting the nervous system. As the Gita beautifully says: “Reshape yourself through the power of your will... Those who have conquered themselves... live in peace, alike in cold and heat, pleasure and pain, praise and blame... To such people a clod of dirt, a stone, and gold are the same... Because they are impartial, they rise to great heights.” Who knew the weather could be such a powerful tool for our armamentarium? So… What's YOUR favorite temperature? Let's quit arguing with reality and use EVERY opportunity we can to playfully practice our philosophies. +102degrees. +52degrees. And God bless those of you who live in -Xdegrees and REALLY get to practice!

Title says it all. Not sure how I should title these. All the topics in the title like this or coming up with clever phrase or sentence that tries to encapsulate the episode. I think the long version is better as far as people having a clue what they're in for, but the clever phrase is so much cleaner. Too lazy to look up what performs better click wise. I guess I'll try this style today, see if I notice a difference. Anyway, we got a great episode today.

CONTEXT ON THIS SERIESIn 1917, T.E. Lawrence, who you might know as Lawrence of Arabia overthrew the Ottoman Turks in WWI in modern-day Iraq and Syria, using strategic human connections at the local level. He did so by going into tribal environments and creating a level of trust that unified various tribes around one thing that they could all agree on through storytelling of ‘what could be.' He wanted to help others who followed behind him do the same so he wrote The 27 Articles to share with them. Scott has taken these Lawrencian skills and adapted them to the Rooftop Leadership methodology and in this series will share the 27 Waterline Articles for the Rooftop Leader with you so that you are better equipped to lead through the disengagement, distrust, and distraction brought on by prolonged isolation, low trust, and uncertainty. If you'll lean into these and integrate them into your life and business, you will be more attuned to the people you lead and be able to look at human behavior in a new way that allows you to lead at a higher level. You can read the original 27 Articles by T.E. Lawrence here: https://wwi.lib.byu.edu/index.php/The_27_Articles_of_T.E._Lawrence Join Rooftop Nation!

A year or so back, Alvin Starkman introduced us to Reina Cortés Cortés at A & V La Casa del Pulque. We had a Bordeaux barrel gifted to us by the kind folks at Mezcal Sombra — one of the barrels they had subsequently used to age their Mezcal Repose. We thought Reina would ferment her aguamiel in the wooden barrel to make a unique pulque. And she did make a unique pulque. But not in the way we expected. Ever have a five-month-old pulque? We drink in something we never thought possible in this episode of Agave Road Trip!Find extra photos and related links at agaveroadtrip.comAgave Road Trip is Powered by Simplecast.

This week we will discuss the annual medical checkup or annual physical exam. We will not have a guest on this episode but hope you will learn just as much from the discussion based on the research we have done for this episode. Annual Physical Exam: The Basics The physical exam is an essential part of any doctor's visit. Surprisingly, though, there are no absolutes in a routine physical. A good doctor may be thorough or brief, but they will spend time listening to your concerns and providing counseling for your particular complaints and risk factors. Annual exams usually check your: History. This is your chance to mention any complaints or concerns about your health. Your doctor will also likely quiz you about lifestyle behaviors like smoking, excessive alcohol use, sexual health, diet, and exercise. The doctor will also check on your vaccination status and update your personal and family medical history. Vital Signs. These are some vital signs checked by your doctor: Blood pressure: Less than 120 over less than 80 is a normal blood pressure. Doctors define high blood pressure (hypertension) as 130 over 80 or higher. Heart rate: Values between 60 and 100 are considered normal. Many healthy people have heart rates slower than 60, however. Respiration rate: From 12 to 16 breaths per minute is normal for a healthy adult. Breathing more than 20 times per minute can suggest heart or lung problems. Temperature: 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit is the average, but healthy people can have resting temperatures slightly higher or lower. General Appearance. Your doctor gathers a large amount of information about you and your health just by watching and talking to you. How is your memory and mental quickness? Does your skin appear healthy? Can you easily stand and walk? Heart Exam. Listening to your heart with a stethoscope, a doctor might detect an irregular heartbeat, a heart murmur, or other clues to heart disease. Lung Exam. Using a stethoscope, a doctor listens for crackles, wheezes, or decreased breath sounds. These and other sounds are clues to the presence of heart or lung disease. Head and Neck Exam. Opening up and saying "ah" shows off your throat and tonsils. The quality of your teeth and gums also provides information about your overall health. Ears, nose, sinuses, eyes, lymph nodes, thyroid, and carotid arteries may also be examined. Abdominal Exam. Your doctor can use a range of examination techniques including tapping your abdomen to detect liver size and presence of abdominal fluid, listening for bowel sounds with a stethoscope, and palpating for tenderness. Neurological Exam. Nerves, muscle strength, reflexes, balance, and mental state may be assessed. Dermatological Exam. Skin and nail findings could indicate a dermatological problem or disease somewhere else in the body. Extremities Exam. Your doctor will look for physical and sensory changes. Pulses can be checked in your arms and legs. Examining joints can assess for abnormalities. Male Physical Exam An annual physical exam for men might also include: Testicular exam: A doctor can check each testicle for lumps, tenderness, or changes in size. Most men with testicular cancer notice a growth before seeing a doctor. Hernia exam: The famous "turn your head and cough" checks for a weakness in the abdominal wall between the intestines and scrotum. Penis exam: A doctor might notice evidence of sexually transmitted infections such as warts or ulcers on the penis. Prostate exam: Inserting a finger in the rectum lets a doctor feel the prostate for its size and any suspicious areas. Female Physical Exam A woman's annual exam might include: Breast exam. Feeling for abnormal lumps may detect breast cancer or benign breast conditions. The doctor will also check the lymph nodes in the underarm area and look for visual abnormalities of the breasts and nipples. Pelvic exam: The pelvic exam allows examination of the vulva, vagina, cervix, uterus and ovaries. Routine checks for sexually transmitted infections are often done. A Pap test and HPV test can screen for cervical cancer and help assess risk. (Credits: WEBMD.com)

Would you believe varroa mites, carbon dioxide and indoor wintering are working together to make keeping bees easier and more profitable? Well, believe it. Today, we talk with Dr. Brandon Hopkins from Washington State University. His research has shown that if colonies are overwintered in an environmental chamber that can control the levels of the gasses the bees are exposed to, that by adjusting the level of carbon dioxide from a normal 0.04% to over 8.5%, mites in those colonies die. Really. And what's more, the bees don't, really! Temperature was set at just about 40 degrees, the chamber was dark, and after 64 days, mite mortality was extremely high. High enough to prove that this could be a mite controlling tool to use in indoor wintering. To show a difference, another chamber was set up with a 0.12% carbon dioxide concentration, and there was a significant difference in mite mortality was recorded between the two. High carbon dioxide equally high mortality, low concentration equals low mortality. There is much more research underway. Stay tuned! We hope you enjoy the episode.
