Re: Aspirin

Taking even the small dose "baby aspirin" (81mg) you must take steps to avoid stomach irritation--take the coated version and never take it on an empty stomach.

Re: Jeffery RC Hobbie Shop

ERs talk about 'The golden hour" if you can get to a good ER within an hour of having a heart attack or stroke, then there is a chance to avoid long term damage. After an hour, much less chance. Taking a 'baby aspirin" (81mg) once a day is helpful in avoiding both. It is a mild anti-coagulant and le...

Re: Electric Cars

There is a lot of interesting battery research happening. Experts feel that If the distance of a single charge can be increased by a little to 300m/480K and/or charge time to less than 30 mins then the objections based on battery range will fade.

Re: Electric Cars

The power plants can be in remote areas as many are in China. So you move the pollution from the cities to the countryside--problem solved.

Forum behavior

So many times threads descend into personal vilification. The reason I am sure is the anonymity of the forum. You feel safe, you feel that you can say those things that come into your mind but good manners prevent you from uttering. I am guilty of this, I have to admit, and have written things in po...

Re: 2018 Football World Cup News and Prediction Tournament

Re: First execution for 9 years in Thailand

There is an element about the death sentence not mentioned. The sentence is often not carried out, BUT the condemned are housed in MAX security, few priveledges, little yard time etc---very HARD time ALSO-- in the west where plea bargaining is a big tactic--- prosecutors say, we are going for the de...
