10/4    Air in San Fran-San Jose is pretty good! Los Angeles is
        surprisingly good as well. Big surprise: Seattle is
        a little bit worse than San Fran-San Jose!
        \_ The parts of California and Florida that rated highly don't have a
           lot of pesky pollen-producing trees.
        \_ San Francisco has much better air than San Jose. It is not
           primarily due to the excessive virtue of the citizenry, it is
           mostly due to prevailing wind conditions.
           \_ thanks to the wind, we don't have to smell stinky
              bike riding liberals who don't take shower, and
              the smell of second hand weed.
              \_ Yeah it all blows into the Central Valley where they have
                 to put up with the scent of patchouli, weed and unwashed
           \_ Hawaii must be super clean then

3/8     Can any shrink (PhD) prescribe medication? Or do they have to
        have MD to do that?
        \_ In general, a psychiatrist can prescribe medication, but a
           psycologist cannot, because a psychiatrist's training includes an
           MD, while a psycologist's does not.  Some states have started to
           allow psycologists to prescribe medication, which blurs the

5/1     This quote brought up from below, context was systems programming:
        "but I am horrified by what recent CS grads do not know."
        I've heard this a lot, and to me it just sounds standard old man
        ranting.  How much can you expect a fresh CS grad to know? I did more
        systems stuff than average in college, but I was still ridicoulusly
        green compared to me 4 years later.  What do you think the average

3/13    Using cleaning chemicals too frequently in the home seems to increase
        chances of asthma
        \_ I'm shocked, shocked

9/24    Love flying? Better take a blood thinning medication. Your risk
        of a blood clot on a flight is a whopping 1 in 4656.
        \_ We're going back in time!
        \_ Here's the original paper:
           They specifically do not recommend taking blood-thinners

3/30    what if you went on your honeymoon and your bride was having
        her period that week?  that would suck
        \_ I'm sure you could figure out a solution if you think hard enough.
           I have wondered if people ever plan around this.
        \_ Just do it in the bath tub.  You don't even need condoms.
           \_ you know what, you can still get pregnant during this time

Return To The HomePage 2004: America's Asthma 'Hot Spots' Identified The US Asthma Capitals(TM) rankings are identified each year by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America as part of our ongoing public awareness campaign about asthma. These rankings indicate the worst cities in America for people with asthma, based on 15 individual factors measured and compared each year, including: bullet Prevalence Factors, such as asthma morbidity and mortality; bullet Risk Factors, such as air quality, smoking laws and inhaler access laws; and, bullet Medical Factors: such as number of prescriptions and asthma specialists per capita. From Knoxville to San Francisco, asthma has a significant impact on every major city in the United States, yet most people are not aware of the most common form of asthma - allergic asthma. American Academy of Allergy Asthma and Immunology (AAAAI) to develop a new educational campaign, "Is Your Asthma Allergic? More than 20 million Americans suffer from asthma, and 12 million have allergic asthma. in fact, a recent survey showed that only 37% of asthma sufferers surveyed had heard of allergic asthma. Prevalence Factors: Quantitative city and state outcomes data including morbidity and mortality for the most recent 12-month period from government and industry sources, including: estimated asthma prevalence, self-reported prevalence and annual crude death rate for asthma. Risk Factors: Qualitative and quantitative city, county and state environmental and legal data for the most recent 12-month period from government and industry sources, including: comprehensive annual pollen measurements, average annual outdoor temperature, annual outdoor air quality, poverty rate, uninsured rate, inhaler access laws and public smoking laws. Medical Factors: Quantitative city and state medical data for the most recent 12-month period from government and industry sources, including: number of asthma rescue and controller medication prescriptions per patient, and number of Board Certified allergy, immunology, pulmonology and asthma specialists per capita. Weights were applied to each factor in consultation with medical and research experts reflecting the relative importance of each factor's effect on asthma sufferers. Final total scores and factor subtotals were rescaled assigning 100 points to the largest score and presenting all other scores as a percentage of the largest. The metro area with a total score of 100 points did not necessarily have the "most severe" score for every factor, but rather, it achieved the highest composite score after all subtotal scores were weighted, tabulate and compared.
