She ran calling WIIIIILD....fire
This message brought to you my Michael Martin Murphey
Here we go, a more useful bunch of information than “GO GET A RESPIRATOR AND PANIC WITH ME”. I appreciate this person so much.
I hope this information gets around as much as the post I made about cold weather dressing - this is just as important, just in the other direction.
I was guilty of not having enough carriers for all of my animals - I’ve since rectified that.
I also ordered respirators today. They aren’t that expensive! You can get them on the Evil Site of Evil for ~20 and up. Make sure they either come with the filter pads, or you get some. It’s not always standard.

Y’all remember last year‘s wildfires? @MinkasaurusRex [hey that’s me!]
brought to my attention that is wildfire season again, and I think that calls for a safety thread. These graphics showcase last yeardrought drought versus this years drought. This year has the potential to be much, much worse.
I’ll put the rest in the Read More.
This advice will read as though it is specifically targeted towards people in rural communities, and to an extent it is. However, none of us, even within cities, are without risk.
Be ready to run. Pack a “bug out bag” and keep it near the exit to your home so it’s easy to grab on your way out. Have each member of your household do the same.
If you need to evacuate before you have had time to pack a bug out bag, and you don’t know what to grab for clothing- grab your laundry hamper.
It’s full of things you’ve worn recently, you can wash them when you are out of harms way.
Get all of your important documents – birth certificates, the deed to your house, the title for your car, Social Security card, passports etc. and put them together in a safe place somewhere near the door you leave through so you can grab them as you go.
Delegate who is responsible for what tasks when it is time to get going. Who grabs the important paperwork? Who grabs the animals? Who grabs food and money? Make sure everyone knows their role.
Have a plan, know the plan, and practice the plan. It’ll feel silly, but I am completely serious when I say that you should have fire drills in your home.
Shut all of the doors in your home before you leave. Fire travels through buildings as it has access to pockets of oxygen, and if your home ends up being the battle ground of firefighters vs fire, it will have a slightly better chance of pulling through if each room is isolated.
Put a cup of water in your freezer and allow it to freeze solid. Once frozen, put a coin on top. After evacuation, you will be able to tell if you lost power and need to get rid of the food in your refrigerator and freezer based on if that ice melted and the coin sank into it.
If you do not have a vehicle, reach out to your neighbors or friends who live nearby and become part of their evacuation plan.
If you have pets, make sure that they are wearing collars that are properly fitted. Get them chipped if you can. If you can’t get them out with you, or if they escape in the midst of the evacuation, you may not have time to wait.
I highly recommend investing in respirators. You only get two lungs, so let’s try and take care of them.
I also recommend investing in a camping stove and dehydrated food- there are companies that specialize in emergency rations that a shelf stable for up to 25 years. I personally keep a week and a half worth of dehydrated food like that in my car at all times.

I’ve hated calculating pH & pKa since high school, nothing has changed.
6 hours of mandatory class + 2 hours of meetings = 8 hours of Zoom Hell™️ today.

@progressaesthetics thanks for putting together this challenge! It’s been fun :)

Chapter 18 - respiration
🧬 Oh boy, this is a big one but break it down step by step and it becomes so so much easier. The maths is the easiest part and it’s all well and good knowing the steps but exam questions are never straight forward

So I finally had a productive day I can say. I revised 4 chapters of human physiology y'all, I'm proud ngl.
So I *had* been going through this very unproductive and procrastinating phase and with this account I think I have been able to get back on track so I'm extremely glad about it.
I want to enjoy this process, every single moment of it. All late nights, early mornings, avoiding calls everything, I want to make it all worth. And I know I will.
So will all of you guys out there working so hard everyday. Putting in your 100%, you all deserve the best and you will achieve it soon.
Don't give up. Have faith in yourself.
Aspire to become the better versions of yourself, aspire to be someone you'd wanna look upto, someone you'd be inspired by. Once you achieve this people, you'll attract the best.
Don't fret, just enjoy every single second of preparing for your exams or whatever it is that you're working your ass off for.
Maybe not instantly but with consistency you'll definitely achieve all you want.

Respiration: Alveolar Pressure Change -- Airflow and Gas Exchange.
Alveolar pressure (Palv) is the pressure of air inside the lung alveoli. When the glottis is opened and no air is flowing into or out of the lungs, alveolar pressure is equal (zero cmH2O).
During inspiration, the increased volume of alveoli as a result of lung expansion decreases the intra-alveolar pressure to a value below atmospheric pressure about -1 cmH2O. This slight negative pressure is enough to move 500 ml of air into the lungs in 2 seconds required for inspiration. At the end of inspiration, the alveolar pressure returns to atmospheric pressure (zero cmH2O).
During expiration, the opposite change occurs. The lung alveoli collapse before the air is expelled from them; the alveolar pressure rises to about +1 cm H2O. This forces the 500 ml of inspired air out of the lung during 2–3 seconds of expiration. By the end of expiration, the pressure drops gradually and becomes atmospheric again.

Ton réveil, depuis longtemps, marque cinq heures et quart. Il s’est arrêté, pendant ton absence, sans doute, et tu as négligé de le remettre en marche. Dans le silence de ta chambre, le temps ne pénètre plus, il est alentour, bain permanent, encore plus présent, obsédant, que les aiguilles d’un réveil que tu pourrais ne pas regarder, et pourtant légèrement tordu, faussé, un peu suspect : le temps passe, mais tu ne sais jamais l’heure, le clocher de Saint-Roch ne distingue pas le quart, ni la demie, ni les trois quarts, l’alternance des feux au croisement de la rue Saint-Honoré et de la rue des Pyramides n’intervient pas chaque minute, la goutte d’eau ne tombe pas chaque seconde. Il est dix heures, ou peut-être onze, car comment être sûr que tu as bien entendu, il est tard, il est tôt, le jour naît, la nuit tombe, les bruits ne cessent jamais tout à fait, le temps ne s’arrête jamais totalement, même s’il n’est plus qu’imperceptible : minuscule brèche dans le mur du silence, murmure ralenti, oublié, du goutte à goutte, presque confondu avec les battements de ton cœur.
Georges Perec, Un homme qui dort, Éditions Denoël, 1967

WEAR YOUR MASK
The virus that brought normal life to a grinding halt in early 2020 continues to wreak havoc across the world, with the current global death toll closing in on one million. It’s humbling to think that so much devastation can be caused by something so minuscule. Indeed, the SARS-CoV-2 virion particles (pink) shown here in this recently captured electron microscope image are somewhere between 50 and 200 nanometers in diameter. That’s approximately a sixtieth of the length of the hair-like cilia (blue) protruding from the human airway cell on which the particles lie. Each infected airway cell can produce potentially thousands of these virions that can either infect further cells or be expelled from the body via coughs, sneezes, or talking, floating off through the air to infect a new host. If nothing else, this image of our common foe should serve as a reminder to WEAR YOUR MASK.

Perpetually trying to breathe water when we were always meant to breathe air
Illustration I did for article “Breathing Water: Meditations on Gender Divergence and Normality” in Spare Rib Magazine, “The Respiration Issue,” Winter 2020. (Intersectional student-run publication I helped restart at my college.)

My respiration is difficult, and I am about to breathe the last gasp, happy to live and die in Jesus Christ, who is gain to all His children in life and death.

Exhale is to let go of what can no longer remain. If every time it is a little death, inhale is everytime the first breath of the rest of our life.

Embryology is really tricky. I spent over 3 hrs on development of the respiratory system today and then studied a part of respiratory physiology. I also have a discussion on the cardiac cycle tomorrow 😩.
Apart from studying I binge watched a few episodes of big bang theory and spent an hour with my grandparents today!
