Seehundstation Norddeich

Senioren um die Welt

Wenn man in der Nähe der niedersächsischen Nordseeküste ist, sollte man unbedingt die Seehundstation in Norddeich besuchen, es ist wirklich ein lohnenswertes Ziel. Dort werden verwaiste Seehunde, und vereinzelt auch Kegelrobben, aufgezogen und nach einiger Zeit in die Nordsee zurückgebracht. Die Tiere bleiben durchschnittlich zehn bis zwölf Wochen in der Station, bis sie genügend Gewicht zugelegt haben und stark und fit genug sind, um ausgewildert zu werden.

What’s that smell from the oven?

__________ via Daily Kos:

“[Manchin] has sabotaged the president’s agenda,” Sanders (I-Vt.) said on ABC’s “This Week.”

[…]Manchin’s reluctance to pass the [Democrats’ party-line spending] bill after months of negotiations has infuriated Democrats who contend the spending bill is desperately needed to fight climate change.

Sanders on Sunday did not hold back his frustration, claiming that “people like Manchin” are “intentionally sabotaging the president’s agendawhat the American people want, what a majority of us in the Democratic caucus want.”

“The problem was that we continued to talk to Manchin like he was serioushe was not,” Sanders said. “This is a guy who’s a major recipient of fossil fuel money, a guy who has received campaign contributions from 25 Republican billionaires.”

Why Does He Not VOTE WITH HIS PARTY?  I reckon one reason is that money…

Esophageal Cancer Revisited


Lost in the clutter, a new study based on diagnostic records for Floridians has identified a massive increase in both esophageal cancer and Barrett’s Syndrome, the precursor to esophageal cancer, between 2012 and 2019. The increase is among middle aged Americans, defined as between 45 and 64 years of age.

  • The number of cases diagnosed with esophageal cancer increased by 91% in that time period. In hard numbers, per 100,000 people, cases rose from 49 to 94.
  • Diagnoses of Barrett’s rose in the same time frame by 35%, from 304 to 466 per 100,000.(1)

This matters because the 5-year survival rate for esophageal cancer isn’t good. Further, by the time a person realizes that their might be a problem in their esophagus, usually from difficultly swallowing, the cancer will be at an advanced stage.

The five year survival rates for this cancer, compared to a person without this cancer, are

Vice President Harris joins House & Senate Democrats to protect the rights of citizens

“We are not asking anyone to compromise their beliefs or abandon their faith. We are simply saying the government should not be in the position nor should the government have the power to replace its beliefs for those of the woman. That’s what we are saying,” Vice President Harris said. “We are talking about a situation in our nation right now where states and so-called leaders are passing laws that would criminalize medical health professionals, health care providers. We are talking about several states in our nation who will not allow an exception for rape or incest.” Harris then noted the national effort to put the right to codify abortion access into law.
