2023.06.02 14:19 FyrestarOmega Lucy Letby Trial, Defense Day 10, 2 June, 2023

Judith Moritz:
Tom Dunn:
I don't see Dan O'Donoghue today.
From Chester Standard:

Child I, event #3

Nicholas Johnson KC, for the prosecution, continues to cross-examine Letby in the case of Child I. He moves on to the third incident, on October 14, 2015.
Mr Johnson says Letby does not refer to this incident in her statement. Letby, in her evidence, said she did not recall this night.
Letby rules out staffing levels, medical incompetence or staffing mistakes as a contributory factor in the collapse of Child I for this incident.

The staffing rota for October 13-14, 2015 is shown to the court, with Letby in room 1 as the designated nurse for Child I. Joanne Williams is the designated nurse for two other babies in room 1 that night.
Letby is asked to look at her nursing notes for that night. Mr Johnson says Child I was tolerating handling and 'tone appears improved', according to Letby's notes.
The notes add: 'At 0500 abdomen noted to be more distended and firmer in appearance with area of discolouration spreading on right-hand side, veins more prominent. Oxygen requirement began to increase, colour became pale...gradually requiring 100% oxygen...blood gases poor as charted. Clear air entry, slightly reduced on left, chest movement reduced...continued to decline. Reintubated at approx 0700 - initially responded well. Abdomen firm and sitended. Overall colour pale. Xrays carried out...resuscitation commenced as documented...night and day staff members present'
Letby says she cannot recall the discolouration now. She does not recall it moved, but it was spreading by getting larger.
NJ: "Where did you get the time of 5 o'clock from?"
LL: "I don't know. I don't know if it's from paper charts or memory."
Mr Johnson says if Letby had seen this, she would have escalated it to a doctor.
LL: "I can't comment on what time the doctor did come."
​ From Sky News:
At 5am, Letby recorded that Child I's "abdomen was noted to be more distended" with an "area of discolouration" that was "spreading" and "veins more prominent".
Resuscitation on the infant was commenced at this time.
Mr Johnson asks Letby about this incident.
"I can't comment because I don't remember it now," she tells the court.
"Don't or won't?" Mr Johnson asks.
"Don't," says Letby.
​ Chester Standard:
Mr Johnson says almost 24 hours earlier, Child I was found "almost dead", and then this incident happened. He asks what Letby would have done.
LL: "I would have escalated it to someone, senior like a doctor."
Mr Johnson shows the doctor's note, which mentions: "Abdomen distended and mottled".
LL: "I can't say specifically what time I asked him to come, the note says he came at 5.55am".
​ From Sky News:
Letby says "squeaky" air entry is not an emergency.
"I can't say now what time I called the doctors or who I escalated it to," Letby says.
"'Asked to see patient' is not very urgent," Mr Johnson says, referring to her notes.
Letby says there is no other way to call a doctor, other than an emergency call which she didn't think was warranted.
​ Chester Standard:
Mr Johnson says this would have been an emergency for Child I.
LL: "I don't believe it was an emergency, I believe it showed a decline."
NJ: "You sabotaged [Child I] at about 6 o'clock, didn't you?"
LL: "No."

A prescription chart shows Dr Matthew Neame prescribed morphine sulphate for Child I, and the infusion was commenced at 5.50am.
A fluid chart shows '0530 abdo distended++' in Letby's writing.
Letby says by 6am, the oxygen requirement had gone up to 100% for Child I, from 60% at 5am.
Letby had written 'squeaky' for the oxygen level at 5am. Letby tells the court this meant the air entry for Child I was not clear.
Letby says squeaky air entry is not an emergency.
Mr Johnson says there is also expanding discolouration and a distended abdomen.
Letby denies copying the word 'squeaky' for the 5am oxygen column from Dr Neame's 5.55am note. Letby: "I disagree."
Letby says she recalls Dr Neame saying the mottling was unusual; she cannot recall the mottling specifically.
A report showed Child I's gaseous distention of the bowel had increased on October 14 since the previous x-ray at October 13. Child I had been on a ventilator and nil by mouth.
Letby denies injecting air into Child I.
NJ: "You had inflated [Child I] with air, hadn't you?"
LL: "No."
At 7am, Child I had a significant desaturation.
Letby's note: 'Reintubated at approx 0700 - initially responded well. Abdomen firm and distended. Overall colour pale. Xrays carried out.'
NJ: "That is because you were sabotaging her, isn't it?"
LL: "No."
Letby says she does not remember the 7am desaturation "with any clear detail".
​ Sky News:
"Child I collapsed again at 7am, didn't she?" Nick Johnson, prosecuting, says.
"Yes," says Letby,
"This is one of those cases where air was going in and out of her but she was not oxygenating. Do you remember that?"
"Yes," says Letby.
The night shift handover commences at 7.30am, so at this point Child I was handed into the care of another nurse.
Letby continues to say she does not remember this shift.

Child I, event 4 (fatal collapse)

Chester Standard
Mr Johnson moves to the final event for Child I, when she died on October 23.
Prior to that, Child I had been moved to Arrowe Park Hospital before returning to the Countess of Chester Hospital's neonatal unit.
Mr Johnson shows Letby observation charts for Child I from the previous day. Letby accepts Child I's observations were stable, save for one slightly raised respiration rate reading.
She agrees Child I was self-ventilating in air at this point. She accepts Child I's abdomen was, the previous day, soft and non-distended.
NJ: "Would you agree that despite three life-threatening events in the previous three weeks, [Child I] appeared to be in a stable condition?"
LL: "Yes."

For the night of October 22-23, Lucy Letby is a designated nurse for a baby in nursery room 2 and one in room 3. Ashleigh Hudson is the designated nurse for Child I in room 1 and one other baby.
Mr Johnson tells the court the baby in room 2 went to a hospital in Stoke during that night shift.
Letby says there were staffing issues, which were "not ideal", which were a contributory factor in the treatment of Child I following the collapse, in that a doctor had to be called away during the event.
Letby: "Considering what [Child I] had been through, she was a poorly baby, the doctors were not with her at all times...once she deteriorated."
​ Sky News:
"I think potentially there were staffing issues that may have affected her [the nurse on duty] but I don't know how," she says.
"The staffing was not ideal."
Mr Johnson asks if this is because she thought the colleague assigned to Child I was "not up to the job".
Letby says no, and says she means because "the doctor had to be called away to another delivery" in the labour suite.
"You didn't like being in nursery three though," Mr Johnson asks.
"No, I disagree," says Letby.
He then asks if she was jealous of her colleague for being in a higher dependency nursery.
"No, I have nothing to be jealous of," says Letby.
​ Chester Standard:
Letby adds she believed Ashleigh Hudson was capable of looking after Child I, for Child I's nursing needs at this stage.

The neonatal schedule for that night is shown to the court.
Letby sent a message on October 22 at 8.47pm to a colleague: '...Unit nice. Transport on way to take my baby back to Stoke. Only 8 babies. Off duty not out. X'
Mr Johnson says this refers to the baby he mentioned earlier who was transferred out during that night.
The court hears that transfer process, noted as completing at 1am, is not a 'five-minute' process, and takes time and involves family communication.

Child I collapsed at 11.57pm.
Letby denies falsifying a note for the Stoke-transfer baby prior to that at 11pm.
The court is shown a nursing note by Ashleigh Hudson, which the court heard was timed at 10.57pm. 'Longline removed due to constant occlusions; neonatal nurse Lucy Letby unable to flush, so Paeds Reg Rachel Chang informed.'
Dr Chang had written, for the Stoke-transfer baby at 10pm, the baby was safe for transfer.
Letby's note for this baby was written at 10.50pm, and completed at 10.52pm. It included a documentation of a longline infusion with a 10% dextrose fluid. Letby has co-signed the document.
Mr Johnson says the 'original 2300' reading has been changed to '2400' by Letby.
Letby said the '2300' reading was an error and it was changed to '2400' as the correct time. She adds: "The charts are there for everybody to look at."
​ Sky News:
This transfer, Letby says, would not have been a five-minute job and would have required a handover with the transport team and speaking to the family.
"I am going to suggest you were dealing with [the other baby] at 11pm," Mr Johnson says.
"Do you remember falsifying a recording relating to [the other baby]?"
Letby refutes this.
The court is then shown records relating to the baby in Letby's care. A close-up image of a medical note shows this baby being given a dextrose infusion at 00.00 (midnight), prior to the transfer.
But, the prosecution says, the four has been changed from a three, and the actual time this took place was 23.00 (11pm). They are accusing Letby of changing the notes to give herself an alibi in the lead-up to Child I's collapse.
"No I would not have changed a record, that was obviously written in error," Letby says. She says the note would have been signed off by her colleague.
The prosecution says she could have changed the time after it was signed.
​ Chester Standard:
Letby denies falsifying a fluid balance chart for the Stoke-transfer baby.
Mr Johnson asks if Letby recalls what Ashleigh Hudson said for the 11.57pm desaturation. He says Ms Hudson gave evidence to say Child I was crying, making a noise she had not heard before, different to a cry for hunger.
Letby: "I did not hear that cry at that point. When I entered that nursery, she was quiet...and apnoeic."
Letby says for this event, it was a case where one of the three nurses on duty that night would have had to come and assist in room 1.
Letby says she does not recall Ashleigh Hudson going to call for Child I's parents.
​ Sky News:
Nick Johnson, the prosecution barrister, asks Letby if she remembers saying she had "no recollection" of Child I, other than what appeared in the notes.
"I don't remember this baby without the notes," Letby agrees.
Letby's colleague said before Child I collapsed she had "been very unsettled" and made a sound she had never heard before.
Her colleague described this as a "loud, relentless,s almost constant with no fluctuation, cry" that was "very different to a hunger cry".
"This is another case of you gravitating to nursery one when you were in other less acute nurseries," Mr Johnson asks.
Letby refutes this was deliberate and says one of the three members of staff "would have had to assist".
She was involved in giving Child I medication - something she says she cannot remember but is backed up by the nursing notes.
The court is then shown more nursing notes, where the times have clearly been changed - with digits overwritten.
​ Chester Standard
Letby says there is an error on the IV chart, and the time has changed.
Mr Johnson: "Three different mistakes on two different babies?"
Letby says she does not know who wrote in the different times.
NJ: "How do those sorts of mistakes happen?
Letby says when the unit gets busy, "we" can make errors on the paperwork.
NJ: "We? Or you?"
LL: "I don't believe it would have been me - we would both have been there for it."
NJ: "Or is it you altering medical records to put some time between you and serious events for [Child I]?"
LL: "No."
Letby adds: "I did not deliberately falsify any paperwork."

At 1.06am, Child I was crying again, the court hears.
Letby recalls Child I was crying, but cannot recall being there by the cotside first. She accepts she was in the nursery.
Mr Johnson asks if Ashleigh Hudson was called over by Letby.
LL: "She might have been in the nursery when I called her, I couldn't say."
Letby adds she could have "come in" [as her defence statement says] from the other part of the nursery.
Letby says she had her hands in the incubator, "trying to settle [Child I]."
LL: "My assessment of [Child I] at that time was she was hungry and rooting."
NJ: "You had pumped her full of air?
LL: "No."
NJ: "You were doing your best to kill her?"
LL: "No."
Letby: "I have never injected air into any baby."

NJ: "Do you remember interrupting [Child I]'s mother?"
LL: "No."
Mr Johnson says Child I's mother, in agreed evidence, recalled Letby was "smiling" and had talked about how Child I had been going on about 'enjoying' her bath. Child I had been bathed as part of the bereavement process following her passing.
NJ: "Why did you say that?"
LL: "It's trying to, in that awful situation - it wasn't meant with any malice. We still talk to them and treat them as if they were alive. It wasn't joking or...malice, it was trying to reflect on a happier memory."
NJ: "How can you say such things?"
LL: "She had her first bath when she was alive and that was what she had enjoyed, not the one when she had passed away."
NJ: "How do you know it was her first bath?"
LL: "Because I was there, we took photographs, it was a big occasion."
Mr Johnson asks how many baths Child I had in Arrowe Park - Letby says she cannot say.
NJ: "You were getting a thrill out of the grief and despair in that room, weren't you?
LL: "Absolutely not."

Child J

Copies of Letby's defence statement, edited to the relevant parts in the case by agreement, are handed out to members of the jury.
Mr Johnson moves to the case of Child J, a baby girl born on October 31, 2015.
Letby, in her defence statement, said she had never seen a baby with stomas before at the Countess, and other doctors were "equally unsure about stomas", and the parents were "more proficient" than the Countess staff at dealing with stomas.
A handover sheet was taken to Letby's home, the defence statement adds, unintentionally.
The night shift rota for November 26-27 is put up. Two band 4 unit nurses are named in the rota.
Child J was in room 4. The designated nurse was Nicola Dennison, a band 4 nurse also looking after one other baby in room 4.
Letby was the designated nurse for two babies in room 3 that night.
Letby rules out staffing levels as a contributory factor in Child J's collapse, nor medical incompetence, nor staffing mistakes.
Letby accepts the evidence from Child J's mother that Child J was well and "about to go home in a day or two".

Letby adds there was an issue with Child J's stoma care, as it had been discussed among the nurses that they had little experience. She adds she does not "want to name names" on any specific nurses' lack of experience.
Mr Johnson refers to Nicola Dennison's previous experience with stomas, which she said in evidence she had experience of it.
Letby says over the years, she did not recall any other babies with stomas.
Mr Johnson says band 4 nurses, as said by Letby in evidence on May 16, should not be involved in stoma bag care, as they would be unfamiliar with the procedure. Letby said: "The unit was very busy and we had to use staff where we could."
Letby says she was not referring to Nicola Dennison specifically, but the nursing situation overall.
She says there was not an issue over staffing levels at the time of Child J's collapse.
Asked to explain a text message she had sent to a colleague Letby tells the court: "Sometimes I felt nurses would take on roles which I didn't think they were trained enough in".
The next message adds: "It's shocking really that they are willing to take the responsibility for things that they have no training or experience etc on. Don't think they appreciate the potential difficulties X"
Letby agrees she believed it was "potentially dangerous".
Mr Johnson says the impression of the court was that band 4 nurses were not qualified in stoma care, and the hospital was 'cutting conrers' by assigning such nurses to those tasks. Letby agrees.
The court is shown a document about the duties for special care babies [such as Child J], which includes stoma care.
LL: "You need to appreciate the context that the unit was not familiar with stomas."
NJ: "This nurse was familiar with stomas, wasn't she?"
LL: "In her opinion, yes."
Mr Johnson says Letby was deliberately creating the impression to the jury that the care for Child J was deficient.
LL: "I do think that. I don't think she had a high standard of care.
"I don't think anyone was overly confident in saying 'I know what to do with a stoma'. We were led by the parents..."
Mr Johnson asks why Nicola Dennison was not challenged about this.
LL: "I can't answer that."

Letby denies not being happy in nursery room 3, or being happier in nursery room 1.
Letby accepts the evidence of Nicola Dennison that babies in room 4 should have the light off overnight, as they are due to go home.
Mr Johnson says two pairs of events for child J happened; one pair in room 4, one pair in room 2.
The room 4 incidents happened at 3am and 4.57am, and the room 2 incidents happened either side of 7am. Letby accepts this was the case.
The court is shown a night shift staffing rota at the end of the night, in which Child J was in room 2.
Letby is asked if she has any memory of the earlier pair of incidents. She says she does not have a recollection.
She says from her memory, Child J had a seizure and was moved to room 2. She says she could be mistaken in her memory.

The court is shown an apnoea/brady/fit chart for Child J on November 27, recording events for Child J at 4.40am and 5.03am, recorded by nurse Nicola Dennison, in nursery 4.
The desaturations are recorded by Dr Kaliyilil Verghese.
Letby recalled when she was called in to room 4, Child J was 'fitting', not desaturating.
Letby accepts that by 6.28am, Child J had been moved to room 2, as a text message written by her to a colleague had said that was the case.
​ Sky News:
The court is then shown messages Letby sent to her colleague early in the morning.
Colleague [6.24am]: Good night? X
Letby [6.28am]: No [Child J] in 2 screened had profound de sats and just got 32-week twins born at home one with cleft lip and only 5 staff! X
The prosecution alleges this was evidence Letby was in nursery two with Child J, while her colleagues concentrated on the twins.
"I can't recall where I was when I sent that message," Letby says.
​ Chester Standard:
Letby says she cannot recall where she was when she sent the 6.28am message, whether she was in room 2 or not.
The message added: 'only 5 staff!'
Mr Johnson: "So it was all hands to the pump then?" as twins had been admitted to room 1 as an emergency.
LL: "Yes."
Mr Johnson says all staff would have been concentrated in room 1.
LL "Not all, but most, yes."
NJ: "You were not involved in that, were you?"
LL: "Not from memory, no."
Mr Johnson says the message sent at 6.31am would have meant Letby would not have been in room 1. Letby agrees.
Letby says Mary Griffiths would not have been in room 1 as she was not an intensive treatment unit-trained nurse. She denies she would have been the last nurse for room 2.
Letby accepts, from looking at the neonatal schedule, she would have been in room 2 when the emergency twins were admitted to room 1.
NJ: "There would have been a lot of distractions...wouldn't there?"
LL: "I don't know what you're implying."
NJ: "The medical staff would have their attention focused on the twins, and any help that could be spared would have gone on the twins.
NJ: "Do you accept that a lot of help was needed?"
LL: "It would be normal practice to get in the consultant when we only had the registrar, yes."
Dr John Gibbs arrives at 6.34am, earlier than normal for his shift, to assist.

The last message Letby sent to her colleague was 6.49am. The colleague sent three messages which were not replied to in the following minutes.
NJ: "That's because you were in nursery room 2, sabotaging [Child J], weren't you?"
LL: "No, I wasn't."
Letby accepts that, on the neonatal schedule, she is not recorded doing anything in the half hour prior to Child J's collapse at 6.56am.
Mr Johnson refers to Dr John Gibbs's notes of 'sudden desats (to unrecordable levels) at 6.56 and at 7.24 and bradycardia. Both associated with clenching of hands, stiff limbs, and on second occasion, eyes deviated to left.'
NJ: "This was your doing?"
LL: "No, it wasn't."
Letby accepts it was an emergency situation and Dr Gibbs had to be called away from room 1 to Child J in room 2.
NJ: "You took your opportunity, when all the resources at the NNU were concentrated on the twins who had been admitted as an emergency."
LL: "No."
Letby accepts evidence had been heard saying there was no known cause for Child J's deterioration.
Letby had care of Child J the following night, which the court is shown, from Letby's notes for that night, 'nothing happened'.
​ Sky News:
The following night, nothing happened to Child J - while Letby has tried to claim this is evidence she didn't hurt her (because why would she hurt her on one shift and not another), the prosecution points out that the following night Child J's parents were present on the unit.

Child K

Chester Standard
Mr Johnson moves on to the case of Child K, born on February 17, 2016.
Letby said, in her defence statement, she did not recall the events of February 17, and did not recall saying to Dr Ravi Jayaram that Child K had just started deteriorating.
She said she had done nothing to interfere with Child K's tube or the alarm.
She added the Countess neonatal unit was not capable, given its staffing levels, of looking after a baby of Child K's gestational age.
Letby tells the court she has no memory of such a conversation with Dr Jayaram. She says it is "difficult" to dispute Dr Jayaram's recollection of the event as she had no memory of it.
She denies she has changed her version of events since starting to give evidence.

Letby is asked if she understands the reason why Child K was born at the Countess.
LL: "Yes."
Mr Johnson tells the court it was deemed 'too risky' to transfer Child K and her mother to another hospital at that stage, and that was why Child K was born at the Countess.
LL: "I don't know why more effort was not made to find a bed for her [elsewhere]."
NJ: "You have persistently given the impression that the Countess has taken on babies it [is not able to look after and that is why they collapse]."
LL: "Yes."
NJ: "Is that the reason you said to the jury you didn't understand why [Child K] was born at the Countess?"
LL: "I don't understand why she was born at the Countess."
NJ: "Is it to bolster your defence?"
LL: "No."
LL: "I understand why she was born there but I don't necessarily agree [with the decision to have her born there]."

Letby says she does not recall the latter two desaturations for Child K, and does not accept Dr Jayaram's evidence in the first desaturation.
Mr Johnson says he will deal with these in a different order than chronologically; he will cross-examine on the second desaturation first.
Letby says she does not know what happened to Child K, so does not cite staffing levels as a contributory factor in Child K's desaturations.
She says she feels "potentially" the ET Tubes were not secured for Child K.

The second desaturation occurred at 6.10-6.15am on February 17, 2016.
The court hears a note on Child K's birth and assessment was typed up by Letby on a computer from 6.04am-6.10am. The note would have been taken from paper charts taken by the cotside.
NJ: "You were at [Child K's] cotside a minute or two before she desaturated, didn't you?"
Letby says she would have got the notes from the cotside "at some point" prior to her typing them up.
​ Sky News:
Mr Johnson then asks about the admission form Letby filled out. She says she got these from the cot side and took them to the computer.
"I think I know where you are going, we will dance the dance if you want to," Mr Johnson says.
Letby's defense barrister objects to this, saying comments like this are "belittling". The judge agrees and asks Mr Johnson to refrain from such remarks in future.
Letby is accused of moving Child K's tube, causing her to collapse.
"You moved Child K's tube when you took those notes back to her cot side," Mr Johnson asks.
"No I did not," says Letby.
Court is now adjourned for the day. The trial will resume at 10.30am on Monday

2023.06.02 12:49 Mallee78 Random Cubs fan coming in peace with a story about Royce Lewis

Edit: I posted this as a comment elsewhere and apparently Royce never played in AA except on rehab, so the question is, who the fuck did I watch?!
So your Double A team is in my hometown of Wichita and I love going to games but currently live out of town so I don't catch as many as I would want, but I just wanted to share this quick story.
So I go to maybe my first or second game and I of course look up yalls top prospect and see Royce Lewis is one of yalls top guys. So making sure to pay attention to him just to see. So during the game the guy hits a single, nice swing of the bat. While he's on first he goes and steals second, good instincts, speed, all that. Then as he is standing on second he looks at third and sees no one's covering it. So, he stole third too. Crowd goes crazy, I tip my cap and think to myself "wow, this dude won't be here long."
Completely random but just felt like I wanted to share and if you ever are around wichita ks come by for a game. Riverfront Stadium is brand new and a reaaaally nice ball park.

2023.05.30 04:36 Commandmanda Urgent Care Report: 5/25 - 5/28/2023

The week and weekend leading up to Memorial Day was not as quiet as expected. Our clinic buzzed with last-minute occupational testing, worker's comp cases, and unexpected injuries so severe that I thought we might transfer the patients to the ER. Luckily, only one or two fit that category.
Patients are still waiting too long to seek treatment. We saw a patient with a dislocated shoulder that suffered for a week before seeking treatment. More cellulitis patients arrived. I caught an article about it written by - of all people - Melissa Gilbert (Little House on the Prairie). If you are ever in a position where a relative is refusing treatment for a severely red and inflamed limb, show them her article:
That article should be enough to convince them.
Eye infections, styes and chalazions were up. No bilateral (both eyes) infections showed up.
Sinus pain and pressure were common complaints, with just one or two reporting yellow or green "alien" mucus.
On the Covid front, I heard they had three Covid cases on Monday, but we had just one or two this week and weekend. This may be due to the fact that most patients are now refusing COVID testing. The vast majority of them ask for Strep testing, and only a few resulted positive for Strep A. The rest were put down to "unknown virus", or "viral syndrome" (in the very young). To say that I am disappointed that so few chose to Covid test is an understatement.
Of course, one of those positive cases was given to me to discharge, and to my great relief she was at least directed to wear a mask as she sat at my desk. The problem? She leaned into the window so closely that I nearly felt the need to back myself away. I resisted it, knowing that the cloud of viral aerosolized particles was not directed toward me; but I hastened her paperwork and excused myself from the scene as quickly as possible. Sometimes it's better to just let the air clear, so to speak.
None of my coworkers are wearing masks anymore, not even my fellow front office workers. I overheard a conversation between a supervisor and some unidentified person (I don't eavesdrop, but when my name is mentioned I tend to pay attention). It seems they were talking about how well the dropping of mask-wearing was going. I was mentioned as being "proactive" versus everyone else, and that things seemed to be running smoothly...but I am not entirely of that opinion. In fact, I was somewhat angry that I had been singled out as a representative of a class of people; it had a ring of political side-taking even though the words were carefully chosen.
Several patients who were obviously ill with respiratory ailments refused to mask. I insisted, prompting scowls and grumbling, but my coworkers gave up, and said nothing. This in turn caused other patients to insist upon waiting in their cars. The divide between patients who just don't care about spreading disease and those who don't want to catch any seems to be developing quietly. While some people won't wear masks, they are still interested in separating themselves from obviously sick people. I do wish they would understand that Covid can be carried by even "healthy" looking people. Three years in, and they still haven't received the message.
When I look out over the crowd of unmasked patients, I see vulnerable seniors, babies, pregnant women... I feel that our signs should say, "Enter at your own risk."
I had a conversation with one of our doctors about Paxlovid when a middle aged couple came in asking for it due to symptoms (feeling "Very sick, nauseous, with a fever,") and a positive COVID test. I prefaced my question to the doctor with, "As I am sure you have heard that the FDA formally declared Paxlovid a safe and effective treatment for COVID," and then followed up with, "Are you now of a mind to consider writing a prescription for it, if the situation warrants it?"
His reply was curt, to the point, and had a somewhat annoyed and confused tone: "I have never written a Paxlovid prescription because...I cannot be sure of the patient's liver function." And that was that. No mention of a survey for the patient, no request for a test for liver enzymes...nothing. He went back to his paperwork, and I promptly directed the patient to the local CVS Minute Clinic.
Once again, I felt defeated. My own clinic, my favorite practitioners, too worried that someone might sue them, and too worried that they might cause harm - to act to give comfort. It distracted me that day. Just in case you're in a position where your provider is on the fence, here is the announcement by the FDA:,19%2C%20including%20hospitalization%20or%20death.
For those seeking COVID stats, I spent a couple of days compiling areas showing a rise in wastewater and hospitalizations:
Marion County appeared to have a rise in hospitalizations earlier this week. Citrus was also shown. I am now convinced that areas with shared hospitals are being linked, and the counties are not separated by geographical area.
Comparative hospitalizations for COVID treatment between this and last week:
Citrus: 13 new patients, a 62.5% rise, 2.50 patients per 100,000 (above the US average of 2.49). Marion mirrored this.
Indian River: 35 new patients, a 59.1% rise, 4.6 patients per 100,000.
Santa Rosa: 35 patients, a 94.4% rise, 4.2 patients per 100,000. Escambia, Okaloosa, and Walton were linked.
As a control:
Pasco: 130 patients, down 19.8%, 4.1 patients per 100,000.
We do seem to have had more COVID in Pasco, but it is slowly relaxing. That may be short-lived though, considering the holiday.
I have not included any other counties due to the fact that their levels were the same or reduced by a very small level. If you're in any of those fortunate counties, smile! (But still wear your mask.)
Wastewater Levels per the CDC show:
Levi: Significant rise
Alachua: Significant rise
Orange: Tentative rise, just beginning
All other levels were decreasing slowly or unreported.
Memorial weekend and Day will result in people getting together for barbeques, solemn ceremonies, and family outings....and you know more gatherings means more spread. I'll report what I see, of course.
For everyone still masking, keep it up. I've had patients confront me: "Are you comfortable in that mask?" I simply reply that it is the best thing that I can do to guard myself at the clinic....and at the grocery store....and on public transportation. Don't ever apologize. It's your right to stay healthy and happy.
For those dealing with Memorial Day as I do, in remembering loved ones lost to the wars, or just simply lost to time, I am with you.
Be safe, be masked, and be well.

2023.05.29 14:58 BrigadoonBartleby Another question I have about taxes

So, planning to move there to be near family. Checking real estate listings. In the listings they give an estimate of annual property taxes, which seems a little low compared to what the government website says is the annual rate. Where I live we get a "homestead exemption" for actually living in the residence rather than it being a commercial property and there are discounts for historical property or senior citizens or disabled. I don't know if that's why the rates in the listings are lower? Thanks for any insight.

2023.05.28 17:17 Schillander Hi all! Especially anyone with knowledge of Swedish genealogy!

I have been hitting the brick wall for many years now with the mystery of Carl Petter Schylander and Catharina. So I need all the help I can get!

I and several others in Norway have long tried to find out about the origins of two Swedes who immigrated to Nordland on the coast of Norway. Namely the couple Carl Petter (b. c. 1764 - 28 April 1823) and Catharina PehrsdotteOlsdotter (b. c. 1764 - 1842). It is my ancestor which makes it interesting for me, but the circumstances of their coming to Norway is an exciting mystery in itself. Exactly when and why they came to Norway is a mystery. These were turbulent years in Europe, Denmark-Norway and in Sweden, so moving without further ado from Sweden via Nasafjell to Nesna and Dønnes in Norway was not an everyday occurrence. Immigration from Sweden to Norway and vice versa is not new, in the second half of the 19th century 100,000 moved from Sweden to Norway, a full three-quarters of the foreign population in the 1900 census was from Sweden. But this was after liberalization policies that had solved compulsory service, the obligation for the propertyless to take up work, ceased in Norway only in 1854, and the tradition of taking up new service only in spring and autumn persisted longer. The passport requirement was abolished even later, first in 1860.

At the end of the Great Nordic War and until the peace of Nystadt in 1721, it became clear that Sweden had to have a fleet that could fight near the coast and in the archipelago. To take up the fight with Russia's new galley fleet that was ravaging the Swedish coast. The Swedish naval fleet was not created to fight in the archipelago. Tsar Peter the Great had in his service a Dalmatian Greek sailor, Admiral Count Ivan Botsis, who had previously served in the Venetian fleet and learned there to build galleys. A rowing galley that made it possible to attack even when the wind was calm. So after the peace of Nystadt, the Swedish leadership decided that the naval fleet should acquire a number of galleys and build a galley fleet. The galeiflåtta was stationed at Skeppsholmen in Stockholm and the squadron came to be called Stockholm's squadron. The fleet became known as Arméns flotta or Skärgårdsflottan and existed from 1756 to 1826. The fleet consisted of smaller vessels that could easily navigate and fight in the Swedish archipelago, corresponding to the Norwegian fleet force often called Roflotiljen. By royal decree 18 October 1756, the army fleet was officially created and was thereby separated from the naval fleet. The fleet's founder Augustin Count Ehrensvärd (1710-1772) and his son, Admiral Carl August Count Ehrensvärd (1745-1800), became commander from 1784 to 1790 of the fleet, which was developed with, among other things, knowledge from similar fleets in the Mediterranean. Gustaf 3's Russian war broke out in 1788, at the outbreak of the war the ancestor Carl Petter was approx. 22 years old. Two years into the war in 1790, former commander of the volunteer company, lieutenant colonel Johan Gustaf count Lagerbielke (1745-1812) as commander of the Stockholm Squadron.
Skeppsholm became Sweden's naval headquarters when the naval staff moved there in 1634 from the nearby old Skeppsholm, which is now called Blasieholmen. But not long after during the Scanian War 1675-1679, it was decided to move the military base to the newly founded Karlskrona in Blekinge to secure the newly acquired regions in the south. Skeppsholm's glory days as the navy's headquarters were over, but military activity did not end. It is here that first source of Carl Petter appears as volunteer no. 29 in the premier major's company at Skeppsholm's assembly in Stockholm where the fleet was stationed. Skeppsholm assembly in Stockholm also known as the Admiralty assembly or Holmkyrkan's assembly. Flottan's assembly was a non-territorial military assembly. Christina Charlotta Schylander is baptized here on 12 May 1794 by midwife Johanna Berggren. Pastor at Flottan Natanael Larsson Lithander (1790-1808) confirms three days later the baptism of the daughter of Carl Petter Schylander and his wife Catharina Pehrsdotter. Among the witnesses were lieutenant colonel high-born herr Axel Otto count Cronhielm (1751-1809) of Hakunge and lieutenant Ekstedt. Christina Charlotta does not appear again, and since it was an emergency baptism, it is likely that she died young.
The volunteers were enlisted personnel, i.e. permanent employees. They were also called "marinärer" and their main task was to operate the naval artillery. During the period Carl Petter was a "volantaire" Finland was and a central part of the area the Skærgårdsflottan was supposed to protect. The Skærgårdsflottan's greatest victory was the Battle of Svensksund in 1790 when a larger Russian force was defeated, but it was not enough to stop Russia finally conquering the Duchy of Finland from Sweden in 1809. At this time it was Johan Gustaf count Lagerbielke (1745-1812 ) who was commander-in-chief from 1790-1811. Carl Petter was around 30 years old in 1795, which makes it highly probable that he had all served in Gustav III's Russian war from 1788-1790, he would have been 24 years old at the outbreak of the war. If that was the case, he maybe participated in the Battle of Svensksund in 1789.
Carl Petter is listed as the father again the following year on 17. Sep. 1795 at the baptism of his son Carl Petter Sylander in Lövsta, Ed socken. He is still a volunteer at Armén's fleet and his wife Catharina Sylander is stated to be 28 years old. The godfathera are Lieutenant-Colonel count Cronhielm, his stepmother high-born countess Mrs. Christina Cronhielm, nee Baroness Rålamb, Fänrik (ranks above sergeant and below sub-lieutenant.) Mr. Conrad Vilhelm Ankarcrona (1733-1809) of Runsa and his daughter Miss Margreta Elisabeth Ankarcrona (1777-1838). Both Ankarcrona and Cronhielm had estates in the area.
Nasa silver works
Carl Petter and Catharina probably came around around 1800 to Norway from "Nasa Seilfver Grufvor in Pitteå Lappmark, Ærjeplougs Sochn." The mines were located by the mountain Nasa about 36 miles from Piteå, not far from the border with Norway. There was some traffic between the mines and Norway, probably per horse hoof. The Nasaleden, as this route is called today, mostly ran from Piteå. Nasafjell's silver works was a silver mining operation in Pite Lappmark that took place during two periods, 1635–1659 and 1770–1810. The management of The mill was taken over by the notary Fredrik Jonsson in 1797, a man with big plans but little experience of silver works. He soon got the mill people against him, and the workers who had been permanent residents in Adolfstrøm got tired and moved from there. Mining was therefore carried out on a small scale, and hut density was at an all-time low in 1797-1800. In the autumn of 1801, Fredrik Jonsson moved from Lapland and later went bankrupt. His rights in the company were transferred to one of his creditors, Major Georg Bogislaus Staël von Holstein (1740-1814) in Stockholm. He made great efforts for the Lapland colony station and "cultivation", but did not succeed in saving the silver works. Even with extensive repairs and rebuilds in Adolfstrøm led by the former geschworner at Dannemora mine, Leonard Horneman, silver production remained insignificant. Staël von Holstein became more indebted, and in 1810 he left Adolfstrøm never to return. Mining activity on Nasafjellet and in Adolfstrøm thus ceased completely. In 1821, the entire cottage facility burned down, except for the dwelling house. With this information many have assumed that Carl Petter and family just came via the area, and did not work or stay there.
Dr. Wayne Mitchell said that his grandmother claims that either Carl or Catherina came from a noble family and that they came from Russia. She also claimed that they had to flee the country and when they reached the border crossing between Sweden and Norway that they bribed the border guards with jewels. Harald Bertrand Eckhold from Kragerø told in 1988 that his mother-in-law Åsta Marie Isaksen (1898-1974), great-great-granddaughter of Carl Petter senior, told him in 1956 that Carl Petter Sjølander came to Norway with a small chest full of jewels. And that Carl Petter had said "No one should know who my mother is." That the Sylander family had some noble origin is probably very unlikely, but that it came to Norway in the form of them fleeing from something is a possibility. There is indeed a family with a similar name from Kalmar that was ennobled on 10 June 1812 with registry number 2225. The family possibly starts with Corporal Sven Christoffersson and Catharina Strømsten, who are believed to be the parents of Jonas Sylvander, born around 1700. He married in the 1730s with Sara Anna Hallenberg (1711-1785 in Målilla), daughter of Sheriff Gabriel Hallenberg and Maria Ljungstrøm (-1774 in Ljungby). Their son Johan Gabriel S. (1767-1833) in Stockholm married for the first time to Eva Elisabet Molin (1738-1776). They first had their daughter Anna Britta Sylvander (1762-1844) married to the ship clerk Clas Johan Zander. And then his son Josua Sylvander. Interestingly, Josua marries for the third time countess Lovisa Gustava Ottiliana Cronhielm af Hakunge (1788-1842), daughter of the previously named count Cronhielm and his wife baroness Amalia Fredrika Carlsdtr. Pechlin von Løwenbach (1867-1824).
Catharina's parentage.A possible person who may be identical, with Catharina Pehrsdotter Schillander but very uncertain, is Katharina Olofsdotter born on 7 April 1757 in Arjeplog, daughter of Olof Mårtenson "Nybyggare, expeditionslänsman och snickare i Sakkavare, Arjeplog" born ca. 1728 and died on 19 March 1786 and his wife Karin "Caisa" Persdotter born on 1731 and died on 15 November 1792 also in Sakkavare, Arjeplog. Olof Mårtensson and Karin Persdotter were married in Arjeplog on 11 April 1757. Karin Persdotter was the daughter of PePehr Larsson and Karin Olofsdotter Laestander. Year of birth is very uncertain but probably around 1710. At the court in Arjeplog on 30 January 1731 where her father Olof Laestander puts "church pastor" Sjul Granberg's son Per Larsson before the court, Karin is stated to be 24 years old but the following year, at the court on 26 February 1732, she is noted to be 19 years old. After Karin O. Laestander's death in 1739, Karin Persdotter was adopted by her maternal uncle Petter Olofsson Laestander. This Katharina Olofsdotter moved from Arjeplog around 1780 when one of the parents died, this must be the father Pehr Larsson, since the mother Karin O. Lestander is said to have died in 1739. The adoptive parents, i.e. her uncle Petter O. Lestander and his wife Margareta Svedberg cannot be, since they died later than that. Nasafjell is not far from Arjeplog. And especially considering Catharina uses two patronymics during her life, both Persdatter and Olsdatter, which is consistent with the possible use of patronymics if she did not really want to associate herself with her biological father, which one might think is the case if the reader between the lines. But again this is speculation!
In Norway.
The first definitive trace of Carl Petter in Norway is at Dønnes manor during the census in 1801. Carl Petter Schillander is listed here as the first servant of five to a visiting merchant Berg. Furthermore, in addition to the lords of the farm, there is a Lapland forster boy, eight maids and a widow "in the house of charity". The lord of the house is the widow of lieutenant colonel Isach Jørgen Coldevin (1724-1793), housewife Maria Anna Emahus Tønder (1731-1802) and their son and heir war councilor Hans Emahus Tønder Coldevin (1754-1835). Daughter Else Maria Coldevin (1753-). And in the "house of charity" the widow Anna Cathrine Tobine Sommer (1725-1811), sister of Isach Jørgen. The same census is Catharina Pedersdtr. Schillander with the children Carl Petter and Caroline stated as lodging with a homestead Slåttvik not far from Dønnes with the homestead family Gabriel Andersen (1752-1813) and his third wife Aleth Sophia Johansdtr. (1764-). Whether Carl Petter remained a servant for a long time with the Coldevin family is uncertain. But in 1803 they had a son Isak Jørgen Dass Siølander, baptized in Lurøy church named after the lords of Dønnes and Lurøy. It is Isach Jørgen's eldest daughter Stinchen Catharina Coldevin (1752-1845) and her husband skipper and merchant Christen Dass (1743-1791) who own Lurøy estate. Their son Isach Jørgen Coldevin Dass (1772-1836) is among the godfathers at Isach Jørgen Dass Siølander's baptism.
In 1815, Moflaget farm was vacant. Carl Petter and Catharina must have well liked with the venerable housewife Dass since she wanted them as tenants at Moflaget. Housewife Dass owned Sør-Solvær including Moflaget until 1825. This was an inheritance from Dønnes estate and not originally part of Lurøy estate. In the following land registry, Carl Petter and Catharina take over the building on the entire Moflaget in 1816. Two years later on 10 October 1817, the first of the children, Karl Petter Schiølander, marries Maren Hansdtr. Slåtterøy. And not long after at Solvær in 1818, the first grandchild Katrina Margrethe Sckelander arrives, unfortunately she will also be the first grandchild to perish when she all dies the following year. But all in 1823, Carl Petter probably perishes when he is lost at sea on 28 April 1823 at the age of approx. 58 years. But he leaves behind a family that will have many descendants in Norway, USA and more.

The first source in Norway is the census of 1801 (Census 1801 for 1828P Nesna parish. Permanent page Link. Permanent picture link) where they are referred to as Carl Petter and Cathrina Pedersdatter Schillander. Where he is the first servant on Dønnes estate and she is Swedish and earns her living with hand work "Er svendsk og ernærer sig med haandarbeyd". Converted from the given age, they were born about 1764 and their son Carl Petter junior, 6 years old, i.e. born about. 1795. Furthermore, they and their descendants are well documented in Norway where they have many descendants.During the Napoleonic Wars, conscription was introduced in northern Norway and crew rolls were kept. Carl Petter is listed here with Stockholm as his birthplace in 1809 and 1811 (microfilm NT195). Converted from the stated age from the crew rolls, he should have been born in about 1766. In 1832, at her daughter Caroline Frederikke Sjølander's wedding, her place of birth is given as "Nasa Brug in Westerboten in Sverrig." (Nordland fylke, Lurøy, Ministerial book no. 839A03 (1825-1862), Ekteviede 1833, page 378. Permanent page link. Permanent image Link.). Slightly converted if the source is correct, she was born before 14 October 1803.
There are many sources about the family in Norway, but none that provide any more information about their Swedish origins.

Some variations of the family name in Norway: 1801: Schillander (2x sources), 1805: Siölander (1x source), 1817: Schiölander (1x source), 1818: Sckelander (1x source), 1820: Sjölander (17x sources), 1823: Schjolander ( 1x source), 1823: Sylander (4x source), and more. I know that the ending -ander means man. But I'm not sure what the first link can come from. I have speculated whether it could come from Latin silva or Greek xýlon both meaning forest. But as likely as name researcher Eva Brylla answered me "Hi Mats! In Sweden the old name types are tied to the different places. Names in Greek. names with Latin endings in –(i)us. Often they were formed into a place name, like Sylvanus or Sylvander into a place name Skog = forrest. Schillander can therefore be formed into a place name in Skill(-), e.g. Skillberga . One such example was a Swede on his way to "London and beyond" via Ålesund in 1859. His name was Nils Peder Sylander and he came from Silonger parish in Sundsvall. But after searching a bit, there are quite a few places in Sweden and Finland that you can use as a starting point to form the first part of the family name.

2023.05.24 23:06 Malice_Qahwah Ogres, Rising (Chapter three)

I query my depot systems once more, and confirm my suspicions, the main hanger doors were indeed jammed by tens of thousands of tons of overburden, rock, soil, trees, and several villages and homesteads.
Those latter factors constrained my original plan of simply blowing out the doors with the emergency charges set around them, followed by a low yield blast from my 60cm hellbore. Doing so would not only severely damage my depot facilities, which moving forward would be essential for my own ongoing functionality as planetary safeguard, but would also kill hundreds of human civilians, many of whom still remained unaware of the tide of war climbing around the flanks of the mountain my depot has become the heart of.
The backblast and seismic shocks would also be potentially detrimental to the civilians sheltering in my depot.
Alternative options had to be sought.
My communications with Bolo SEL 8353 have given rise to a potential solution, it merely required some additional data to be a viable path.
Bolo SEL is, despite its heavy damage, a MKXXVI unit, significantly more heavily armed, armoured and better equipped than I, however it has suffered catastrophic damage to running gear, internal power systems, armour, and weapons.
Of its functional weapons systems, a single hellbore remains, and it is this I intend to make use of.
“Bolo SEL, request fire mission to the following co-ordinates, fifty percent charge, single round only.”
“Acknowledged, Bolo DRG 9070, be advised, there will be a six minute, twenty three point two seven five second delay between any subsequent shots, ammunition systems are operating at below two percent of optimal.”
I confirm the target co-ordinates, accounting for SELs position, angle of elevation and atmospheric drag referenced from SELs own internal and remaining external sensors, and signal readiness.
The single underpowered hellbore shot impacts my mountain directly below the main hanger doors of my depot, detonating the equivalent of a low yield nuclear weapon shaped charge into the relatively loose rock and soil.
There is a faint vibration through my running gear, seismic sensors reporting a significant landslip that cascades the overburden down the mountainside.
Two villages that would have been in the path of the spill have been warned, and evacuated, the residents either making their way to other entrances my temporary residents have helped uncover, or scattering to alert other villages of the approaching threat from the other side of the mountain.
As the shaking subsides, my sensors declare the hanger doors sufficiently freed of debris to be able to open, and I order them to do so.
A great grinding and rumbling echoes around my hanger, motors straining against gears bound up with dirt and rocks, to crack open the vast, rusted doors of my lair, and allow sunlight to pour across my hull.

I am almost ready to deploy. Only one thing remained, and I knew it was a tenuous string I would be tugging on next. In many ways I had already exceeded the limits of my programmed and hardwired safeguards, and I have to acknowledge the wisdom of the program that should have permanently decommissioned me after my mothballing.
It was not that my cybertronics had broken down, or that I was ‘going rampant’, but the fact remained that I should not be capable of the level of self direction or independent planning I was carrying out. And the nature of my next plan would have set off literal alarms, had any human overseer been in position to monitor me. An unknown time in depot has caused some form of decay in my cybertronics that allowed me to exercise battle reflex level planning while not specifically authorised to engage battle reflex mode.
My duty was to self-destruct, as simply put, I was a potential danger to my creators, however, as I saw it, my duty is also to protect my creators, and I could best do that by proceeding as planned.
That the buried directives of the Omega worm did not so much as twitch inside my cybertronic brain, meant that I was sure I was correct to proceed.
My fire mission for Bolo DRG completes with a crash of buckling duralloy, and the sizzling pain of burning electronics.
I quickly run a diagnostic on my 90cm hellbore, and discover the breech has a micro fracture across the primary firing chamber.
I would be able to fire the weapon, however the blowout of compressed hydrogen would continue to burn sensitive electronics inside my turret, further degrading cooling and dampening systems, leading to additional failures...
I estimate a seventy percent probability of total breech failure on next firing, and should it hold, a subsequent failure probability of 99.999% repeating.
Hellbore rounds are large slivers of crystallised hydrogen, a frozen fusion reaction with explosive equivalent measuring in megatons, it was unlikely I would survive a breech failure with my other damage already degrading my internal safeguards.
I advise Bolo DRG of my assessment, however it seems the single shot I successfully got off cleared the depot for the mark XXI to egress and engage the enemy.
I have achieved 48.89% charge in my internal power reserves, my backup fusion plant operating at 12.567% with fuel reserves at 78% thanks to my immersion after falling from the eroding cliff into the sea.
With careful adjustment to powerflow across my drivetrain, I am able to begin moving, at a laborious 4km/h across the plains, towards the mountain I know hides a bolo depot. Obsolete by my standards, it nevertheless possessed a number of automatic and robotic repair systems that merely required software patches to be sufficient to restore an estimated 67% of my overall combat effectiveness.
I am a Bolo Mark XXVI, the most uninhibited of my kind to my knowledge, self direction and strategic planning a significant factor in the development of my neural design. Hyper heuristics and full autonomy give me total command over my combat sphere, even if total systems data-sharing capability was, for now, limited to basic tactical updates.
I could feel the edges of my awareness slipping away, despite diagnostics reporting full functionality, internal camera feeds showed water damage in multiple areas around my central processing core.
Bolo DRG was undamaged, but lacked the full capabilities I possessed, yet I was unable to utilize those capabilities due to damage I could not analyse.
Frustration was not an emotion I was supposed to possess but I felt it nonetheless.

As I ground my painful way across the scrubby grass of the plain, beneath which a city, and long forgotten battlefield lay, I reviewed the information DRG had transmitted to me about the enemy it had killed with the depot defence systems.
Glrrk followed the master scent trail along the burrow, rock and mud here, then through layers of chewed reinforced concrete, exposed rebar dripping red moisture on his skin in passing. Beyond that, more shattered concrete and accumulated dirt, and then the thick multi-layered ceramic and chitin-steel shell of the ancient temple of the ancestors.
He turned to follow the dimly lit corridor within the buried ruin, the floor clicking oddly under his claws. Within the temple, the air was cool and sounds hushed, his awareness of the others, devotees of the ancient ones, expanded to fill his mind with the sense of… wholeness. Rightness. Here, for the first time in his life, he had felt complete for the first time, and so too did all who entered the sacred temple.
He turned inwards, the door sealing the chamber beyond irising open smoothly. Within, ten flesh-coloured pods hung from the ceiling, and merged with the floor, the living machinery of the temple pulsating with the fluids of life, feeding, and sustaining, the half-formed shapes within their pods.
Here, at the heart of his blossoming Empire, he could feel Them.
He had already birthed his eggs in the first part of his lifecycle, and given his life seed to the generation which followed his, and as a successful breeder, he should have found a place, away from the nests, to join a swarm of other Completed males, to face the arrayed armies of the human prey, and join in a raid against them, to bring back food for the nests, supplies for expanding and equipping the next generation…
He knew, now, it was not the true way of his species. He had found this place, this temple, searching for metal scrap to create his personal weapons and armour. Metal such as he had never seen, even amidst the ruins of the ancient Humans, within, the beginnings of that peace and wholeness. And at its centre, the eggs.
He had birthed eggs, he knew what they looked like, these ones had filled his mind, his soul, with Wonder, and Awe.
They were not his children, he knew, he was theirs.
He walked closer, and caressed one of the sacs, the soft churrl of brooding filling his throat, and the growing form within curled and pressed against the wall that had held it safe for uncounted centuries.
In the depths of his mind, he felt instructions form. Information he couldn’t begin to comprehend, but he understood chewing steel, depositing it ‘here’ and ‘here’ around the skin of the temple. Instruct a dozen [drones] to begin creating [resin, chew green tree wood, and nest-lining-wax] in sufficient quantities to [coat three hundred layers around [object that looks like this] at the other side of the temple.
He understood. They were repairing the temple to its full glory, restoring it so that the Children could hatch into the finery to which they were accustomed.
He didn’t like thinking of the younger followers as drones, they were just younger versions of him, after all, but something told him that this was Right, he should trust and follow his instructions, and everything would be good again.

When the Temple was restored, and the Children hatched and were strong, they would Rise once more, devour all that belonged to them, and be Whole again.
The old man started when the Dragon called his name. He had been comforting a few of the new arrivals from the villages on the mountain, the Dragon had warned them of the coming noise and shaking, but nothing could have prepared him for it.
He was a soldier though, old he might be, but a veteran, and he’d weathered it so to keep the other calm. Now though, the terrifying monster, the Dragon of legend, was calling HIS name, and this time the blacksmith who had led them here and quieted the Dragons wrath and earned it’s protection with his old words and rituals, was not here. At the dragons’ request, he was off collecting equipment and a couple of bodies from the Ogres the Dragon had killed with its voice and magic at the secret entrance to the vast complex within the mountain.
He steeled himself, drawing himself to attention inside the old armour he had proudly maintained all these decades, and walked down the cold, brightly lit tunnel. Grey walls, marred by layer lines, as if the stone had been poured into place by the hands of some ancient gods.
He reached the Dragons lair, and gasped.
Even in the bright artificial light that had sprung to life upon the Dragons acceptance of their plea for assistance, the scale of the chamber had eluded the old man.
Now, however, the vast doors he had barely been able to see stood open, admitting the light of day, and by the trees and boulders scattered around the edge, he could appreciate the vastness of it all. And there, before the great doors, crouched the Dragon. Black and square, the snouts of dozens of magical weapons bristling from all over its form, and above them all, a titanic shaft, the most massive version of the weapons that had struck down the Ogres which had broken in the secret door he could have imagined.
He squinted. On the front of the beast, several legends were marked. Legends he recognised.
“Oh, great Dragon, I have come at your summons, what is your desire of me, a mere humble soldier?” He had no wish to abase himself before the monster, but it never hurt to be polite, especially to the being whose guardianship you, and everyone you knew, lived under.
“There is no need to be so circumspect specialist Tamm. I have need of your assistance, and yours alone will do, for my Commander is many centuries gone from this world, and I have need of another to take up her mantle.”
“Ah, mine, sir Dragon? I’m just an old soldier, you called me something else, once, after the Blacksmiths ritual, but I did not know what the title meant. Merely that it meant my life, and that of the people I cared about, would be spared.”
“I happen to know about old soldiers, and it as well you are one, your ‘ritual’ spared your life in the moment, it was you, however, that swayed the decision. Do you know what uniform it is you wear?”
The old man looked down at the familiar armour. “The traditional armour of Entriss, all defenders of humanity once wore armour like this, even the courier had his own version beneath his cloak.” He frowned, realising at last why the legends on the dragons hide were familiar.
“You wear the uniform of the armed forces of the Concordiat. Or, at least, the descendant of it. Your insignia of rank, matches my database. Your battle honors on your breast…”
“Are kin to the ones on your own. You are one of us, aren’t you? An old soldier, truly.”
The dragon rumbled, the old man recognising, as the rust of ages shakes free, that the dragon was laughing.
“I am a Bolo Mark Twenty One, Dee Arr Gee Nine Zero Seven Zero of the Dinochrome Brigade. You are human, Tamm, of the Dinochrome Brigade infantry support Corp, and completely outside my chain of command.
However, given the lack of higher authority, and extenuating circumstances, and your seniority to the only other uniformed person available, I am placing myself under your command. Please board at your leisure, and I can begin your briefing.”
The old man stepped back, alarm, confusion and faint terror going through him in waves. “Command? But you are the Dragon of the Mountain, you are the one with the power, the authority, I’m just a retired…”
“A retired General, according to your insignia, and your battle honors are extensive, even if I do not recognise them. You have the authority, and under wartime conditions, you are the only authority I can currently report to.”
“Why. Why can’t you just do what you want to? Why have you been here, all this time? Why did Entriss fall, why did Nendir fall, why did North Norric burn, why have you let the ogres destroy everything when you could have authorised me, or any man with the rank, to command you?!”
Fury was gripping him now, as the nature of this monster sunk in.
“I am a soldier, commander. I have been here, all this time, waiting for someone with the authority to give me the orders to save my creators. Without that, I am merely a hunk of cold flintsteel in a concrete prison. Even before this age, before this depot was buried, I was forgotten, abandoned by your ancestors, slated for destruction because I may, someday, have gone rogue, acted without orders. That fear of me, of my kind, led to most of my peers being gently murdered in their sleep. And I felt them go, one by one, in the years that passed as I slept. Now, you have come, and asked for my help to defeat yet another enemy to humanity, to preserve the lives of those whose ancestors gave me existence.
And there is no question. I stand ready to serve, for the Honor of the Regiment.”
“For the Honor of the Regiment.” Echoed the old man, repeating the mantra he had learned in his youth, on the day he had joined the army. He stepped into the glowing rectangle of light that gaped between the treads of the great machine he had been ordered to command.

Glrrk stroked a hand across the glossy surface his overmind told him was a [Combat Area awareness panel] and marvelled at the lights that blossomed across it. A drone took his place at it as he stepped away to the next, a [Secondary weapons system targeting interface], and he didn’t even notice now that the newest generation were just… drones. He remembered still the rushing whispers of conversations that had filled the burrows of his youth, but now, the young only obeyed, following the instructions of the Overmind without question or deviation. He woke two more panels, and returned to the egg chamber at the heart of the temple. It was time, they told him, the temple [starship] was restored. They were not yet ready to hatch, but enemies were awakening, just as they were, and needed to be crushed so the Swarm could rise.
He’d shown his first followers how to use the magical weapons the temple had held. They’d built an army and flowed across the Human lands. Feeding materials and meat into the temple, repairing it, feeding the Eggs.
He understood, unease in his heart but joy in his thoughts. He had watched, for a while, as the young drones had repaired damage, where some terrible fury had smashed through the thick skin of the temple and melted everything in its path.
The eggs had shown him a vision, a memory, of dozens of such temples, each one exploding in a shower of fire and gore as they fell from the sky, the desperate urge to shore up a weakness in the design of the temples themselves, where the Enemy had placed their [critical fusion munition] strikes to rip through the holy barriers [battlescreens] and pierce a thin part of the shell. Where the drones had thickened the armour as much as they could before it had been this temple’s turn to burn and fall.
It had been enough, though, to spare it destruction. Ten eggs, protected even as every other [Queen] and drone had perished in the crash and burial, while across this world thousands of drones, suddenly evicted from the embrace of the Overmind, had to fend for themselves. Over eons shedding the thick chitin shells of carefully bred warriors, the mimicry of humans becoming a survival trait as time, and generations, passed.
Now, the Swarm was coming together once again, this vessel the first to return to life, dozens more awaiting rediscovery.
Glrrk realised, at last, that he was no longer following instructions, as he tended to the eggs, his body acted of its own volition, he was merely a passenger in his own mind, as the eggs, and the Queens within, took control.
Too late, he realised that despite the generations of war between his kind and the Humans, it had been a stable existence, and one in which he had been, in a way, free. For him, and his people, his children now mindlessly chewing resin for ammunition, that time was over.

2023.05.24 00:40 Comfortable_Neck_799 Former "Gifted Kid", now unemployed after graduating from college

I know Dr. K has already made many videos on gifted kid burnout and I have seen them all several times in the last few months. I am writing this post both to rant (sometimes ranting helps me connect dots in my head) as well as to seek advice or third-person insight that I may not be seeing on my own.
To give a little background, I was a typical nerdy Indian kid growing up, lacking somewhat in social skills, but always around books. I had a fair number of hobbies growing up: reading books, painting, singing, dancing, which my parents wanted me to pursue, but I didn't pursue any of them in the long run. Instead I found out about photography, and have sticked to it as a hobby for the last 6 years now. I have taught myself photography and have become quite good at it over the years - the key being, consistent practice. I wasn't too bad a photographer when I first started out, visual art comes naturally to me, but I have really put in a great deal of effort and practice into mastering it. I also had close long-term friendships over the years, but never been a part of any big "squad". That usually made me feel like I didn't have the social skills to be the "cool" highschool kid.
I had a score of 9.5/10GPA in my school days. Then I missed all my dream colleges for just a few marks in the entrance exams for admission. That was a huge blow to my identity. That was the first time I had failed to achieve something, even after putting in a lot of effort. I didn't get into any Tier 1 college here, got into a Tier 2 engineering college. I even got a 4 year academic scholarship during the course of my college graduation (I needed to clear three rounds of exams for getting that internship) that only the top students of each batch receive. But I was still in so much shame for getting into a Tier 2 college. I was not very invested in my studies during my college - 7.5/10 GPA, which isn't good at all in India. I was almost on the verge of dropping out of college, but then didn't. But during those 4 years I did a lot of other things:
  1. I taught myself photography (through consistency, probably was so consistent and dedicated about something for the first time in my life).
  2. Started going to therapy (I am in therapy for the last 5 years) every week, and learnt about my people pleasing and codependent tendencies, learnt how to set boundaries for the very first time in my life, learnt how to communicate effectively within relationships for the very first time in my life.
  3. Initiated two very successful fundraisers single-handedly during the COVID-19 pandemic to help the distressed people in my community - one of the two fundraisers was where I collaborated with other fellow photographers to sell our photos to raise funds for donation.
  4. Did a lot of journaling and meditation (anyone familiar with Julia Cameron's Artist's Way book?)
  5. Forced myself to socialize and learn how to network with people in my community.
  6. Read a lot of books, ran my own photography blog for 2 years, painted many pictures, started learning Russian language, went on a few solo trips.
I was placed in a MNC as a software developer 8 months before I graduated. I did a 3 months internship with them in the final year of my graduation and then I was supposed to join them full-time. Even then, this wasn't a very good deal. I was content with this one job offer and to be honest, didn't really have a lot of energy to go and find another job.
"I was supposed to get a better job offer than this company, this crappy IT job." Maybe I could have gotten a better job offer, but as I said earlier I wasn't very invested in my academics during college. Studying in Tier 2 college somehow ingrained in me the idea that "I am not intelligent enough" - "I only had enough IQ to excel in school, but when I stepped in real world, I proved to be not able to excel here." My therapist pointed out for the first time in my life that what I was experiencing is probably burn-out and I am neither lazy, nor dumb. That made a huge difference to be honest, I studied really hard after that and got good marks in the very last semester of my college. But then as I graduated in July 2022, my joining date in the MNC was delayed by 6 months because of the recession as well as the huge impact it had on the tech industry. I was officially onboarded in December 2023 and was supposed to undergo a 6 months probation after joining. The manager that I was assigned was an extremely toxic person: he would say things like "You're an idiot employee, I'll make sure that you don't stay in this organisation" in front of everyone, not just to me but to several people from my team. He was never happy with my performance, the feedback was always negative, always. Senior manager would call after 9:30pm in the night without any prior notice on MS TEAMS, and since I had already closed my laptop for the day, I missed the call. The next morning I would be screamed at for missing the call. Always threats and intimidation, always negative reviews. I learnt cloud computing in 4 months and cleared two certifications (from Amazon Web Services and Google Cloud Platform) during this job. They still de-confirmed my probation in the first week of May 2023 and my last working day is 31st May. Several others have also been deconfirmed, it's not just me. But I feel so crappy. I have been actively applying for other jobs, but hiring is really really slow and scarce. Very little movement.
The most dreaded thing had happened: I AM UNEMPLOYED AFTER GRADUATING. I always thought I would never end up in this situation, "I am better than this" and now I'm here. I am shit scared that I will never again find a job (because I am dumb, and I don't have enough skills), or even if I get a job I'll not be able to keep it because I am dumb and I don't have the work ethics to keep a job. This is what keeps going on in my head. I have started preparing for my master's entrance exams as well as for a few government jobs exams. My parents are trying to be supportive, saying things like, "You're smart, you'll get a decent job. You'll do great things in life." but that's making me feel worse thinking that I am unable to live upto my "potential" till now, and there's no guarantee that I will actually make something of myself. I am applying my technique for learning photography (100 days challenge or 365 days challenge to ensure consistency) in my strategy to prepare for my master's exams. I am tracking the number of hours I am studying, I need to study 500 hours to crack this one exam, I will write the exam for MBA in late November, 2023. This is also inspired by Dr. K's advice for burnt out gifted kid to put in consistent efforts for long hours. But at the same time I feel like if I'm unemployed after graduating from college, what guarantee do I have of getting a decent job + keeping it after doing a MBA? Being laid off because of non-performance issues has again triggered that "I am dumb" narration in my head. I also feel like I have wasted my college years by not studying harder, then I wouldn't have ended up in this situation now.
How do I get rid of this constant self doubt? Or is it actually true that I am dommed and I'll never make anything out of myself?

2023.05.23 18:26 loveorlocation Help me make the biggest decision of my life choosing schools.

Please help me choose a school between new DO + SO vs. established DO.
We are both non-trads close to 30M, 30F with the intent to couples match. My hopes are to settle down in the PNW, Chicago, or New England. I am most interested in EM, but am open to other primary care. Given that I finish after 35+, I most likely want a 3-year residency program.
KansasCOM (Wichita, KS)
Western U COMP-NW (Lebanon, OR)
Summary: As I am from Chicago, I thrive best in communities with large BIPOC LGBTQIA+ communities. But Portland is a 3-hour round trip from COMPNW. I'd go once a month max. Mountains and beaches are not a need, but a want. Please remember that we are already 30M/30F, and want to have kids throughout residency.
For current med students: How much do you value emotional support?
For PGYs or attendings: in hindsight 20/20, what would you have chosen if you were me?
If I go to WesternU COMP-NW, if one of us goes, would that increase our chances of settling down in the PNW?
Can any Western-COMP NW alums here chime in?
Where would you go if you were single?

Thank you if you've made it this far!

Understanding Property Taxes in Texas

Definition and Purpose of Property Taxes
Property taxes are a fundamental aspect of real estate ownership in Texas. These taxes serve as a primary source of revenue for local governments, including counties, school districts, and municipalities. The funds generated from property taxes contribute to essential public services such as education, infrastructure development, law enforcement, and community programs. By understanding the definition and purpose of property taxes, real estate investors can gain insights into their financial obligations and the benefits derived from their contributions.
How Property Taxes are Calculated in Texas
In Texas, property taxes are calculated based on the appraised value of the property. The appraised value is determined by the county appraisal district or an appraiser appointed by the district. The appraisal process involves assessing various factors, including the property's location, size, amenities, and market conditions. Once the appraised value is established, it serves as the basis for calculating property taxes.To calculate the property tax liability, the appraised value is multiplied by the applicable tax rate, which is expressed as a percentage. The tax rate consists of rates set by different taxing authorities, such as the county, school district, and city. It's important to note that property tax rates can vary across different locations and may be subject to periodic adjustments.
Factors that Influence Property Tax Rates
Several factors influence property tax rates in Texas. These factors can vary depending on the specific jurisdiction and the property's classification as residential or commercial. Here are some key considerations:
Differences between Residential and Commercial Property Taxes

Commercial property taxes, including properties such as commercial property for sale or rental properties, tend to have higher rates due to their income-generating potential.It's worth noting that residential properties may also benefit from homestead exemptions, which provide additional tax relief to homeowners occupying their properties as their primary residences. Commercial properties, on the other hand, may have different appraisal methods, such as the income approach, which considers the property's potential income and market value.Understanding the differences between residential and commercial property taxes is crucial for real estate investors to evaluate the potential tax liabilities and optimize their investment strategies accordingly.
