” Sonhar o sonho impossível, sofrer a angústia implacável, pisar onde os bravos não ousam, reparar o mal irreparável, amar um amor casto à distância, enfrentar o inimigo invencível, tentar quando as forças se esvaem, alcançar a estrela inatingível: essa é a minha busca.” Dom Quixote. 42frases.com.br Marii Freire Pereira https://pensamentos.me/ VEM comigo!

Getting ready for Historic US 40 Yard Sale
One of our typical setups
This has been a rainy day in Central Indiana. We are back in Indiana getting ready for one of the big antique shows we try to do every year. Of course, we didn’t get to go last year. Though the Highway 40 is really a very big yard sale, we do very good selling our vintage items and bigger items that we have found in our travels.
It becomes a big clean out the garage month for us. We set up at the Dunreith Baptist Church east of Greenfield, Indiana. It is such a great place for us to set up. The pastor and his wife are very nice and helpful. They let us park the RV right behind our display, which is so nice because we don’t have to travel every night.
Highway 40, also known as Old National Highway, is a historic road…

Could removing abdominal fat reverse Type 2 diabetes? San Antonio researchers are testing a new surgery to find out.
Calderon, 46, said he viewed his participation in the research as a way to help current and future diabetics, including families such as his where it has been passed down through generations. If it improves people’s lives, he said, it will be worth it.
Mata, who had 60 percent of her mesenteric fat removed, has seen even more dramatic changes a month out from her surgery.
Previously, her blood sugar was in the high 200s, at one point climbing to 499. Now, it is in the low 100s, reaching a maximum of 150.
Her appetite has changed, too. She becomes full faster and no longer craves sugar. Greasy and fried foods no longer sit well with her.
Mata expects to be weaned off her medications soon. She hopes the procedure can someday benefit her children and grandchildren, if they are ever diagnosed.
“For me, personally, it’s a lifesaver, because I never even thought I could get those numbers that low,” she said.
“You can change your life.”

A global pandemic treaty should aim for deep prevention – The Lancet
To clarify the focus, a distinction can be made between upstream, midstream, and downstream stages of intervention for a prevention system. Downstream prevention is usually understood as prevention from a public health perspective—ie, prevention of disease spread. Upstream prevention and midstream prevention are both encompassed by what we term deep prevention. Upstream prevention is an area that a global pandemic treaty should address, specifically from the One Health perspective.1, 3, 4, 5, 6 There is a link between certain key drivers of environmental degradation, such as illicit wildlife traffic or land-use change, and the increased frequency of zoonotic disease outbreaks,4, 7 which has led WHO and other organisations to call for the suspension of sales of captured living wild mammals in food markets.8 This link directs attention to the relevance of some widely ratified environmental treaties—eg, the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species, the Convention on Biological Diversity, or the UN Convention to Combat Desertification—for reducing risk of zoonosis. A global pandemic treaty could strengthen the coherence between these environmental treaties and the I
