Welcome Yule!

The Winter Solstice, the SHORTEST DAY of the year in the Northern Hemisphere.

As I had told you evenings have ALREADY started to get longer — as of December 17, 2018.

It is sunrise that continues to be tardy.

Notice that sunrise does NOT get earlier following the Solstice!

If anything it continues to get later and later.

It is LATER SUNSETS that are making the daylight longer.

Sunrise does not start getting earlier until January 18, 2019.

Welcome Yule!

‘AndroidCentral’ Misrepresents ‘Garmin’, Badly, In Their “Best Fitness Trackers Of 2019”.

As you can see I do NOT agree with any of their Garmin picks. Prove me wrong. I own, have owned or bought for family members: Garmin Fenix 5 Plus, Fenix 5, Vivoactive 3 & Vivosport. So, it isn’t like I am just going by specs on the Web. I also owned a Fitbit Ionic. I do NOT think the Fitbit Versa is a good tracker. I would NOT swap my Fenix 5 Plus for a Versa plus $500.

Anywho, you see what you think. I have had my say.

Effectiveness Of Opioids On Chronic Pain Again Questioned By ‘American Medical Association’ (AMA) Study.

The actual AMA study as published in JAMA —
Journal of the AMA.

BIG study — involved clinical trials of 26,169 patients! That is a boatload.

So, you can’t accuse this of not having been based on enough actual data.

Essentially it was condensing of data gathered in 96 separate trails. Hence the claim “Meta-Analysis”.

The findings here are consistent with what the AMA reported back in March 2018.

It is also very much inline with what I discovered when I wrote my “Central Pain” (e.g., Fibromyalgia) book last year.

If you are still NOT convinced read the AMA report & my book.

It is worth finding out. It can save you a lot of pain … down the road.
