It's annoying not having a blood pressure cuff in my office. I've just managed to get iCal to sync with bloody Exchange/Outlook and suddenly about a dozen things i have to do this week have suddenly appeared. I cannot tell you how much that has *lowered* my blood pressure! Now I have some hope of doing/attending these things, possibly even with preparation. #relief

Oh interest rates, what a relief
You bring to us so much grief
The Fed's relief may come too late
But consumers' hopes mollify our fate
We cling to your promises of change
To help us out of our financial range
We hope that the Fed pays heed
And keeps our budgets unencumbered indeed

O Gaza, for so long a land of strife,
Your people’s suffering wrought with grief and pain

For a second convoy, a silver lining,
Will bring the light of peace and healing
Let us embrace its signs of blessing
That we might hope for a world worth feeling

If this #verge writer can admit to pissing their pants as a kid after playing Sonic too long on their #genesis/#megadrive in the early 90s, then it's time I come clean on the time when I pissed my pants at 7-11 in the 80s because I just *wouldn't die* in 'Vs. Super Mario Bros.' There was no way I was just going to give up on an accomplishment of that magnitude without a fight. It would turn out to be a fight I'd lose.

Student loan debt
WASHINGTON — President Joe Biden on Wednesday announced another $9 billion in student debt relief through improvements to existing programs, a move that will affect 125,000 Americans, and which he touted as leading to economic improvement.
Wednesday's announcement focuses on three programs: one for borrowers...

THE GREATEST NECESSITY OF THE AGE – THE HISTORY OF TOILET PAPER?
Have you ever wondered why it's customary to shake hands with the right hand? Humans have not always enjoyed the luxury of 4 ply cloud soft cushion. The finest man in toilet paper security (Mr Whipple) knows this, and that's exactly why he implored: "PLEASE, DON'T SQUEEZE THE CHARMIN!".
Aside from the left-hand, some of the first tools used for "throne" hygiene, are listed below. Just a submission from the archives of #UselessTrivia that clutters my mind. Someone said "useless trivia" was the hashtag game today. Maybe they were stoned.
Thousands of years ago, Hygiene sticks, known as salaka, cechou and chugi were used. Many were basically a sponge on a stick.
For the longest time, the Sears catalog was a favorite, as well as another publication. Have you ever wondered why the "Farmers Almanac" has a punch-hole in the top corner? This was the reason. The hole was "punched" so the magazine could be hung on a hook in the outhouse. Not kidding. Later, something called Apothecary paper was marketed but, people began to use this invention as stationary because of the quality of the paper. This paved the way for the more modern version of toidy tissue textiles.
"The Greatest Necessity of the Age", in 1857, Joseph Gayetty introduced:
"GAYETTY'S MEDICATED PAPER FOR THE WATER CLOSET"
The image and article below tells the rest. Considering the other options, can you think of any better invention? Given a choice between toilet paper and the internet... my clean behind and I, would miss all of you very much.

# University of Wyoming sorority hits back at members who sued over trans sister
* Seven members of the #KappaKappaGamma #sorority at the #UniversityOfWyoming #sued the sorority in March, alleging that it violated its own #rules by #admitting a #trans #woman, #ArtemisLangford.
* The sorority has now filed a #MotionToDdismiss the #lawsuit, #arguing that the term "#woman" is "unquestionably open to many interpretations."
* The sorority also #argues that the #members who sued are #NotEntitled to #relief because they did not suffer any actual #harm.
* The lawsuit is still pending, and it is unclear how the court will rule.
* The members who sued the sorority allege that they were #forced to #share #bathrooms and sleeping quarters with Langford, which made them feel #uncomfortable.
* They also allege that the sorority's decision to admit Langford violated the sorority's own #rules, which state that members must be "#biologically #female."
* The sorority has #denied these #allegations, and it has argued that Langford is a woman, regardless of her biological #sex.
* The lawsuit is part of a larger #legal #battle over the rights of transgender people.
* In recent years, there have been a number of lawsuits challenging laws that restrict the rights of transgender people, such as laws that ban transgender people from using public bathrooms that align with their gender identity.

The Kern River is swollen with so much runoff from the #epic Sierra Nevada #snowpack that California state water officials have decided to #open a rarely used #relief #valve, diverting floodwaters into the California #Aqueduct to be used as drinking water in Southern California.
Opening this flow relief valve, known as the #Kern #River #Intertie, is intended to prevent floodwaters from reaching #Tulare #Lake, a typically dry lakebed that in recent weeks has experienced a dramatic resurgence, replenished by powerful winter storms and now heavy spring runoff.

I'm proud and happy to see Alchemist's Castle as a part of the Türkiye-Syria Earthquake Relief bundle!
100% of the proceeds will go to Direct Relief, International Medical Corps, and Save the Children!
#Earthquake #relief efforts are ongoing - Please donate to, support, and follow CIVIL SOCIETY ORGANIZATIONS like the White Helmets, Heyva Sor, and Molham Team! NOT orgs that deal with the Turkish and Syrian states, who have a history of weaponizing aid.
While the context shared in this image largely focuses on the Syrian Regime, the earthquake has impacted #Turkey, #Syria, and #Kurdistan, and the civil society organizations identified are from different regions.
The very instant that world governments rolled out #relief funds so #quarantine-shuttered businesses wouldn't fail and #covid-furloughed workers wouldn't starve, corporate executives started rubbing their forelegs together and planning to raise prices and blame it on #inflation brought on by letting The Poors have too much money.

“Cannabis, Alzheimers, TBI and Invisible Disability"
Click here 🧠 to expand.
Cannabis can still be a controversial topic. The medical benefits for those with physical and invisible disabilities are no secret. People with Invisible disabilities, such as brain injury and PTSD, can be afforded great relief from symptoms by the flower.
Israeli Dr. Raphael Mechoulam, is a well known cannabis research pioneer who has been studying the plant for decades. Read about some of his work in the link below.
Other Research indicates that individuals living with Alzheimers and Dementia may also benefit with less risk and damaging effects than other drugs currently used.
Findings from another Israeli Researcher, Dedi Meiri, argue that there may be benefits to these individuals as well.
"There is a large and growing body of anecdotal accounts of the efficacy of cannabis for treating the symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. The shortcomings ... life-threatening dangers...with... frequently prescribed pharmaceutical treatments... makes cannabis a particularly compelling option – especially considering its solid safety profile."
Even more research from the National Library of Medicine (PubMed.gov), speaks about the neuroprotectant antioxidant qualities of the herb. The PubMed link below contains several links to other studies on cannabis and it’s benefits for people with disabilities.
The human body is said to have CBD receptors "built" in. I am neither condoning, nor condemning the use of “Natures Pharmaceutical"; nor am I suggesting it's use. I am merely presenting medical findings.
According to laws in many places amidst these findings, the jury is still out on the subject.
