Abandoned Suitcases Reveal Private Lives of Insane Asylum Patients (2012)

"Each suitcase offers a glimpse into the life of a unique individual, living in an era when those with mental disorders and disabilities were not only stigmatized but also isolated from society."

From the 1910s through the 1960s, many patients at the Willard Asylum for the Chronic Insane left suitcases behind when they passed away, with nobody to claim them. Upon the center’s closure in 1995, employees found hundreds of these time capsules stored in a locked attic.

Fascinating, but can you imagine being the first one to explore the locked attic of the Willard Asylum for the Chronic Insane? That sounds like a treatment for a really bad movie going right to disc this fall.

//Ground Beef

How Safe Is Your Ground Beef?

All meat potentially contains bacteria that—if not destroyed by proper cooking—can cause food poisoning, but some meats are more risky than others.

"The results were sobering. All 458 pounds of beef we examined contained bacteria that signified fecal contamination (enterococcus and/or nontoxin-producing E. coli), which can cause blood or urinary tract infections." 

"Almost 20 percent contained C. perfringens, a bacteria that causes almost 1 million cases of food poisoning annually. Ten percent of the samples had a strain of S. aureus bacteria that can produce a toxin that can make you sick. That toxin can’t be destroyed—even with proper cooking."
In its special report, Consumer Reports asks, How safe is your ground beef? If you don’t know how the ground beef you eat was raised, you may be putting yourself at higher risk of illness from dangerous bacteria. You okay with that?

Yeah, I'm pretty safe. I know the person that grows the beef and the butcher is right down the street. It's not cheap but if you want quality beef, you really should consider buying the whole cow. Go in with friends or neighbors to but the cost....but buy locally, know your rancher. It has huge benefits.

PS - Our pigs are going to slaughter this week.

//Case of the Mondays

Study: Why you never seem to know what day of the week it is

Do you find yourself forgetting which day it is during the monotony of mid-week? A new study suggests this is because during the week, you’re neither stressed nor excited.

Research published last week in PLOS ONE found that people were more likely to be confused about what day of the week it was on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, and more likely to have a myriad of positive and negative associations with Monday and Friday, more so than other days of the week.

//Aspirin

The associations between the use of low-dose aspirin or other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and colorectal cancer risk.

“Self-medication with aspirin or non-aspirin NSAIDs is strongly discouraged, due to the possibility of serious adverse events,” Dr. Friis said. “The public should not take any medication regularly without consulting with a physician.”

Long-term, continuous use of low-dose aspirin and long-term use of nonaspirin NSAIDs were associated with reduced colorectal cancer risk. Persons who continuously used low-dose aspirin comprised only a small proportion of the low-dose aspirin users.

The Paper: http://annals.org/article.aspx?articleid=2430205
(Reuters Health) – Taking one or two baby aspirins a day for at least five years was tied to a lower risk of colorectal cancer in a study from Denmark.Earlier studies had suggested that aspirin and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory

Put your phone away : ) When was the last time you turned off your mobile  phone?

12% of young adults say using phone at a family dinner is OK

This Pew Research Center report explores newly released survey findings about Americans’ views about the appropriateness of cellphone use in public places and in social gatherings and the way those views sometimes conflict with their own behaviors.

The results are based on a nationally representative survey of 3,217 adults on Pew Research Center’s American Trends Panel, 3,042 of whom are cellphone users.

how about no mayo, mayo :)

The FDA warns food start-up Hampton Creek: You can’t call it “mayo” if it’s not mayonnaise

The Silicon Valley food startup Hampton Creek, which has experienced explosive growth selling egg-free mayonnaise-like spreads and cookie doughs, is in trouble with US food regulators for “misbranding” its products and failing to follow certain labeling rules.

In an official warning letter dated August 12 and posted today (Aug. 25), the Food and Drug Administration lists four “significant violations” that the food company (or is it a tech company?) must fix before the end of the month. The biggest issue raised by the regulatory agency is the same one that Unilever, maker of Hellmann’s Mayonnaise, tried to sue Hampton Creek for in 2014: You can’t call a product “Just Mayo” if it’s not mayonnaise—and that means it has to contain eggs.

1989 OR 1929?

Video: China’s stock market crisis, explained

China’s falling stock market has investors around the world on edge as it threatens to take global markets down with it.

But whether or not China’s market chaos triggers a worldwide crisis, the country is headed for a reckoning. And since there aren’t a lot of precedents, the outcome remains an open question. In this video we look at two equally likely and equally scary models for the Chinese stock market plunge: the United States’ stock market crash of 1929, and Japan’s crash of 1989.

//China

Think of what drives liquor markets: barmen or drinkers?

Blaming China for Black Monday is like blaming a bartender for your hangover

What is happening? Why is China—the country that people once thought was the engine of the world economy—tottering so badly?

To answer these questions it is necessary to recognize that China was never the engine of the world’s growth. To be such an engine you have to import more than you export. Then you would create a demand that is filled by other countries, which as a result export more than they import. Importers are the engines in the supply trains of the international markets. Exporters are the wagons, pulled by the demand created by the profligates. 
China was never a drinker. It was a barman to the riotous worldwide celebration that started in the early 2000s.
