Boomers Health Tip: Costochondritis Chest Pain Can Feel Very Similar To Onset Of Heart Attack (Harvard Medical School)

From a Harvard Medical School article:

Harvard Medical SchoolCostochondritis is caused by inflammation of the cartilage between the ribs and the breastbone, called the costosternal joints (see illustration). This uncommon condition can trigger a stabbing, aching pain that’s often mistaken for a heart attack.

The main symptom of costochondritis is chest pain, which may be sharp or dull and gnawing. It tends to get worse when a person takes a deep breath or coughs, and the chest may feel tender and possibly swollen when pressed. In contrast, people in the throes of a heart attack often say they feel chest discomfort rather than chest tenderness, and they describe sensations such as squeezing, tightness, pressure, or feeling like an elephant is sitting on my chest.

50th Anniversary Of Apollo 11: “The Moon Miracle” By Thom Gibbs Is A Spectacular Chronology

From a Telegraph.co.uk online article by Thom Gibbs:

The Moon Miracle by Thom Gibbs The Telegraph Chronology 2The first question is often ‘why haven’t we been back?’ Fifty years since humans stepped onto the surface of a foreign planetary body there has not been another event to rival it. Not in space, nor back here on Earth.
There have been enormous leaps forward. The Large Hadron Collider, the internet, the fidget spinner, but there is no match for the romance of our first moonshot. It is quite possibly the only achievement of our time which will be remembered centuries from now.
The audacity and aesthetics of Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Mike Collins’s journey still resonate. Their mission was so perilous that Richard Nixon had a speech drafted in the event the astronauts did not come home. “Fate has ordained that the men who went to the Moon to explore in peace will stay on the Moon to rest in peace,” it read. “These brave men… know that there is no hope for their recovery. But they also know that there is hope for mankind in their sacrifice.”

Writer’s Nostalgia: Fragile And Suspended Memories Of The Pencil

From an 1843Magazine.com article by Ann Wroe:

colored-pencils-in-butter-crock-jean-grobergPencils are discarded, as lighters and umbrellas are, because at some crucial moment they fail in their purpose. They refuse to ignite, quail before a shower, or simply snap. But pencils have merely suspended their usefulness. Their potential still lies within them. They can go on setting down by the thousand the words by which the world works.

Yet the pencil’s marks are worryingly fragile. I have worked on Percy Bysshe Shelley’s notebooks, 200 years old, where the pencil-scrawled originals are forbidden to all but the most careful hands. Shelley used pens and ink-bottles both at his desk and out of doors, but he preferred pencils in the open air, and perhaps not just for practical reasons. To look on his pencilled drafts is almost to see the graphite dust sifting away before your eyes – blown by the wild West Wind, perhaps.

Top New Travel Products: “The Layover” Travel Blanket Is Perfect For Flights, “Super Packable”

From YankoDesign.com article:

Layover Travel Blanket PackabilityDesigned with the soul of a sleeping bag, the Layover is a blanket explicitly built for traveling with. Its construction beats those flimsy, tiny, smelly blankets they hand out on flights, and gives you a full-body comforter that wraps you in its cocoon-esque design. Crafted with a breathable nylon exterior and an insulated interior, the Layover is cozy and can keep you warm in those often-chilly flights. Unlike traditional flat, rectangular blankets, Layover’s design comes with pockets and pouches for your hands, legs, and even a few key belongings (like your passport or boarding pass), giving you an experience comparable to being a baby kangaroo in its pouch. The Layover fits your body like a glove, keeping you absolutely snug and ensuring that the blanket doesn’t come off when you move or turn in your sleep. Pair it with a good eye mask and neck pillow and you’ve got yourself the holy trinity of effective transit-napping.

Top RV Campgrounds: Indian Dunes National Park Offers Challenging Hikes, Abundant Campsites

From a New York Times article by Henry Alford:

Indiana Dunes National Park map NY TimesThe volunteer encouraged me to take the 3 Dune Challenge, a 1.5-mile hike up Indiana Dunes’ three highest dunes (Mount Tom, 192 feet; Mount Holden, 184 feet; Mount Jackson, 176 feet), adding that completion of the Challenge would yield a “special reward.”

Back at my well-shaded and firepit-equipped campsite, I surveilled the campground’s 146 other sites. The R.V.-to-tent ratio was about ten to one. My thumbnail sociological findings: The people in R.V.s tended to have a baseball cap and a spouse, while the people in tents tended to have a beard and a slightly unsettling stare. I also took note of the 20-mile-per-hour winds that would be present throughout my stay: These made for cool nights and for campfires that were ridiculously easy to get going.

Future Of Health Care: Skin Sensors Will Reveal Medical Problems Earlier, Then Monitor Recovery

From a Nature.com article:

Skin sensorsThin, soft electronic systems that stick onto skin are beginning to transform health care. Millions of early versions1 of sensors, computers and transmitters woven into flexible films, patches, bandages or tattoos are being deployed in dozens of trials in neurology applications alone2; and their numbers growing rapidly. Within a decade, many people will wear such sensors all the time. The data they collect will be fed into machine-learning algorithms to monitor vital signs, spot abnormalities and track treatments.

Medical problems will be revealed earlier. Doctors will monitor their patients’ recovery remotely while the patient is at home, and intervene if their condition deteriorates. Epidemic spikes will be flagged quickly, allowing authorities to mobilize resources, identify vulnerable populations and monitor the safety and efficacy of drugs issued. All of this will make health care more predictive, safe and efficient.
