ONE PUNCH STAN (what bugs the hands of fate) – Purple Eyes


(Thanks for enabling subtitles!) Well hey there, stranger. Why looking so glum? Ah, man I’m sorry. I gotta get to my job. Why not have the job of a lifetime? Shopping with our two-for-one promotional value! Come on man, I can’t be late for work. I’m Imitation Crab Meat Man! Yeah. You think you’re better than me. No, man it’s not– (short breath) You’re not even a crab! I’m a crab MAN! No, man! You– you’re not! I am! No, dude! When you approached me you walked facing toward me! So what? That’s how people approach people. Not crabs, okay? Yes, crabs! NO, because crabs walk SIDEWAYS! I have human legs! WHERE ARE YOUR PANTS? Pincer power! *flying sounds*
WhoooooaaaaAAAA- –AAAH Now you’ve made me crabby! THAT IS IT! UUAAAAAH (joints violently breaking) Ever since that day, I vowed one thing… to be Zen as fuck. Or my name wasn’t Stan. (poppin’ music plays) (heavenly harps play) I am the God Fly H.U.M.U.N.K.U.L.E.S. I am thirsty! SPIT IN MY FACE. (small pat) (fly buzz) We are the God Swarm of H.U.M.U.N.K.U.L.E.S. We are the most the most powerful beings of every dimension. I’LL KILL YOU! Our hive mind lies within a single insect. So long as he survives, we are immortal! How you doing robot buddy? You look like you got pants. (robotic voice) I must thank you, you saved my bacon. However, I am no robot. I am a genetically enhanced neurological electro-sapien. What is your handle? Well, I’m Stan. What is that short for? Stanley. I see. Are you okay? I am G.E.N.E, you are Stan. Kill him! Kill him right FUCKING NOW! We got bald quick! Is your arm okay? My arm is fine. Your other arm! What other arm? You know what? I’m going home. Have a nice one! (Stan singing) Dun tu dun tu dun dun tu dun dun! Hyuah! Ho! Hyah! I am the Rose of Justice! Feel my prick! (very loud knocking) Yeah? I was able to fix my arm. May I come in? I would like to hang out and listen to music. (“A-Tisket, A-Tasket” plays) You’re in my house now. I couldn’t help but notice your particular mode of dress. Are you trying to make fun of me? I believe there is no need for that. That outfit does it for you just fine. Oh, tin man’s got teeth! I. DO have. Teeth. These are made from synthetic chicken bones. Ha ha! It was I all along! All right, I’ll start with the obvious. Why are you doing this to me? I am calibrating my friendship skills. How is it going so far? [Sarcastic] Great man, you’re knocking it out of the park! Very excellent. Speaking of parks, we should do some activities. Would you like to go to the gymnasium? Would you like to play Whack-A-Mole? Would you like to go swimming? Your cadence is so strange. I honestly have no idea what you’re saying. Like, are these things mutually exclusive? They are not. See, NOW I’m interested! Stan, are you okay? No– I’ll take that as a yes. Stanley, the owner of this establishment would like to speak with us. Holy SHIT, are you naked? I am not naked, my genitalia is not showing. How do you…? Have sex? No! I have a mechanical pressure driven piston. I’ll get it. Well now, what do we have here? I couldn’t help but notice you two breaking me beautiful pool. This is bullshit, it’s barely broken. How is this our fault? You ran live cable underwater! This could have been avoided, had you had read the safety message before playing the game! You were clearly standing too close to the machine! But now I think there’s a way you can make this up to me. The man I hired to build this training facility has gone missing recently, along with some of his research. Destroy him, and I’ll forgive your transgressions here! PEACE OUT. Are you sure this is a good idea? Of course. This is our chance to be someone’s hero. Hero, huh? Look out world, here I come! Well now, what do we have here? I’m Stanley, who are you? Well then, Well then, Sssssssssssssssssssss– –ssssssssssssssssssssss–
Are you okay? –ssssssssssssssssssssstanley! Are you doing like a thing right now? Well then, you’re not going any further! No doubt, you’re trying to destroy the clones! I don’t know what that is, or what you’re doing right now, but it better stop. You fool. You could never take me! I’d wager the softest part of my body is stronger than your hardest! I– what? Observe! (squish, lots of squish) WHAT THE FUCK DID YOU JUST DO? There’s more where that came from, Sssss– –tanley! Your friend is up ahead, but you’ll never succeed! Once more! Once more what? AH, YOU SON OF A BITCH! Yes! Away! There you are, took you long enough. Yeah, I got held up. I found the location of our target, but there is something interesting you should know. It would appear his biometrics are swarming that tower over there. Apparently, I have detected multiple instances of our target. You mean like, clones? I suppose that is one possibility. He just said take care of it, right? Ah, I see where you’re going with this. That is NOT what I meant at ALL. I was gonna say we should go talk to them! Sorry, I misread that one. Wait a minute… I think we should– I still detect… I think we shou– …one more… Hey hey hey, let’s try it my way! Fine. You’re no fun. Well, it’s been a long time since I had visitors. And who do I presume I have the pleasure of meeting? I’m Stan, that’s G.E.N.E., and we were told you stole some research. *laughs* “Stole some research.” Well, you’ve got a lot to learn, kid. A lot to learn. I stole nothing, the world stole from me. What are you talking about? Yes, you might be too young to remember, but a long time ago… a long, long time ago… something was taken from us… …more importantly, from me. And… this is the world’s fault? Yes. Back in the day, there was a video on the internet that came out. It was the perfect video. It fit my niche completely. I loved it. I cherished it. I.. embraced it. What are you talking about, man? Two, beautiful women, held up a glistening red Solo cup. The contents of which were the excrement of another human being. “Two Girls, One Cup.” THAT is what gets ME off. Do you understand? WHERE ARE YOU? Wait! We should hear him out. GOD NO. They took it from us! They made that video impossible to find! What I enjoyed was deemed as unworthy and unclean! The free market should decide what the people can consume! I’m sorry man, I don’t know if I’m with you on this one. Too bad, because all of you soon will be! Behold! My greatest creation! He used to be man. But he, like all of you, will join my family of Scarabaeoidea. And then I. WILL HAVE. MY. REVENGE! NOW YOU DIE. Scarabaeoidea? “Scarabaeoidea, in Layman’s terms it means: the dung beetle species.” (the scientist) That’s right. Once everyone has become part of the dung beetle family, I will have them cover the world… in SHIT! My creation, get them! HAHAHAHAHAHA!! My entire life, I’ve wanted the opportunity… …to make the world a better place. And this is what you give me? YIAAAH! Looks like that was one bug… …that was too hard to catch. Fuck you, we’re going home!

Top 10 Deadliest Bugs

Top 10 Deadliest Bugs


Top 10 Deadliest Bugs It is estimated that there are about 10,000,000,000,000,000,000
insects living today. That’s right, a quintillion insects. In the world, there are about 900 thousand
different kinds of living insects, making up about 80% of all of the world’s species.
In the U.S. alone there are 91,000 known species and about 73,000 that have yet to be scientifically
described and classified. While the insects on this list are nowhere
near being the deadliest animals on earth, these bugs really do make their mark… sometimes
literally, sometimes remarkably- particularly for living things that are no bigger than
a human finger. 10. House Centipedes (Scutigera coleoptrata) Originating in the Mediterranean (or Mexico,
depending on the source), the house centipede has become a very common bug around the world.
You may think centipedes look unattractive but they are actually “good” bugs, as
they eat other pests and sometimes even spiders. Of course, if you have entomophobia (fear
of insects or bugs), then this argument isn’t going to help. In any case, centipedes are
more of a pest than they are a threat, but shockingly they can cause some damage. If
you are bitten by one of these insects, you’ll definitely feel it. Some who have experienced
it say that it is painful, but nothing that will send you off crying in the corner. What’s to Fear? While centipedes aren’t insects that are
responsible for tons and tons of deaths, you’d be surprised to find out that every two years
one person does die due to a centipede bite. This is usually due to an allergic reaction
to the venom that the bug can inject into your body when it bites you. However, it’s
rare that one is so allergic to this venom that it kills them. 9. Fire Ants (Solenopsis) While having a picnic with ants doesn’t
sound so bad, as most ants are harmless and miniscule compared to the human body, having
a picnic with fire ants definitely isn’t the wisest idea. There are over 280 different
species of ants that sting and one of the most widely known is the fire ant. Other ants
kill by stinging their prey and then spraying the wound with acid, but the fire ant is particularly
ruthless. They kill by stinging their prey and then injecting venom known as solenopsin.
And because of this, when a human is stung by the ant, it can be compared to the sensation
felt when being burned; however, the sting is usually minor and something that the body
can fight on its own. What’s to Fear? As you’d imagine, a little ant can’t do
much damage to a human. All we’d have to do is make a little use of our left shoe.
However, ants live in colonies and sometimes, with enough stings and enough bodily sensitivity,
the fire ants can kill. It is said that about 5% of those who report being bitten by a fire
ant die due to anaphylactic shock. Of course this is very far and in between, but there
are reports of deaths caused by an allergic reaction to the venom. 8. Siafu (Dorylus) Very similar to fire ants, Siafu are ants
that are mainly located in east and central Africa, but they can also be found in parts
of Asia. These ants are said to live in colonies of 20 million ants, notably 20 million blind
ants. They are able to travel through the use of pheromones. Out of these 20 million,
there is a group of ants known as the soldier ants. These ants are the ones that are able
to sting to fend off or kill prey. It is said that while the ants are able to sting, they
often use their jaws, made for shearing, to bite. The jaws of these ants are so strong
that in some locations in Africa, they are actually used as sutures which can hold for
up to four days, to allow wounds to heel properly. What’s to Fear? If one is stung by a Siafu, the bite is often
very minimal and nothing that requires a doctor. However, it is said that the young and elderly
are very susceptible to their bites, and some have died due to complications caused by the
ant bite. Around 20-50 people reportedly die each year from a Siafu bite. These ants are
often very aggressive and when you interrupt their colony, you just may be in a little
bit of trouble. 7. Wasps and Bees (Vespula germanica/Apis
mellifera) As pesky as they are, wherever you go, you’re
sure to find wasps and bees. On flowers, near something that smells sweet, or making a hive
in a very inconvenient place- wasps and bees are an everyday part of life when the weather
is warm enough to permit it. You’ve probably been stung at least once so you know what
it feels like. It’s usually not an event that requires medical attention – unless
you’re allergic. What’s to Fear? If you’re not allergic to a wasp or bee
sting, then you really have nothing to worry about. If you are allergic to wasp or bee
stings, then getting stung might be more of a problem. It is said that about 53 people
die each year because of an allergic reaction from being stung. Those who are allergic to
the venom let off after being stung can go into anaphylactic shock, which often brings
about hives, wheezing, confusion, pale skin, and sometimes unconsciousness and even death. 6. Asian Giant Hornet (Vespa mandarinia) You’ve probably seen a hornet once in your
life and you probably weren’t too fearful of it as they are usually pretty small and
pretty easy to rid of. However, imagine a hornet on steroids, and when you do, just
look to the Asian Giant Hornet. This hornet is said to be the biggest in the world, with
a length of 2 inches and a wing span of 3 inches. The hornet also sports a ¼ inch long
stinger, but being stung with by this hornet is definitely not like being stung like a
bee. While you won’t find these hornets anywhere near the U.S. or Europe, if you ever
make a trip to Eastern Asia, you’re sure to run into them a few times, especially if
you travel the mountainous places in Japan. What’s to Fear? Take it from someone who has experienced it.
According to Masato Ono, someone who has been stung by an Asian Giant Hornet, the sting
felt like a “like a hot nail being driven into his leg.” The venom that is released
by the stinger has about 8 different compounds, one that causes discomfort, one that can damage
soft tissue, and one that is able to create an odor that may attract even more hornets.
Those who are allergic to bees can die from the reaction, but some die because of a chemical
known as mandaratoxin which can be fatal if there is enough introduced into the body.
It is said that each year, about 70 people die from these stings. 5. Africanized Honey Bee (hybrid Apis mellifera
scutellata) While most of us can deal with normal bees,
the ones that we see all the time in our gardens, if you ever come into contact with an Africanized
Honey Bee, you’re definitely in for some trouble. Though normal bees do sting, being
stung by a honey bee is much different, as it’s unlikely that you’ll just be stung
once since they hang around in swarms. In 1956 these bees were brought to Brazil in
order to breed a more efficient honeybee. However, this failed and most of the bees
were able to escape. From Brazil the swarms of bees have reached Central America and have
even come as far up as the southwestern U.S. What’s to Fear? Because they are known to travel in swarms,
when a bee attacks a victim, many of the other bees will do so as well. It is said that one
swarm of these bees can take down a horse. The bees have killed about 1,000 people since
they’ve started coming up from Brazil. These bees definitely put a face to the name killer
bees. 4. Kissing bug (Triatomines) First discovered in the 19th century by Charles
Darwin, the kissing bug is an insect that you don’t ever want to come into close contact
with. There are 138 known species in existence. Most of them are within the U.S., with others
scattered throughout Asia, Australia, and Africa. All of the known species are said
to be able to transmit Trypanosoma cruzi, a very harmful parasite that can be fatal.
Most species of the insect are known to live off of vertebrate blood while some are able
to live off of invertebrates. What’s to Fear? The potentially lethal kissing bug is known
to live in the same dwellings as humans, often making their homes on the outside as well
as the inside of our houses. It is said that 45,000-50,000 people die each year from kissing
bug bites. This is because the parasite that the bug carries, Trypanosoma cruzi, is known
to cause Chagas disease, which seems very minute at first but is fatal over. At first
there is just swelling at the site of the bite, but then the disease can lead to intestinal
issues as well as cardiac problems. In fact most of those who die from Chagas disease
die from Chagasic cardiomyopathy. 3. Tsetse Fly (Glossina morsitans) While flies alone are annoying, imagine a
fly that lives by sucking blood from animals and humans. The tsetse fly is found in the
Kalahari and Saharan deserts. This insect is widely studied today due to the disease
that they transmit. The flies look very similar to the normal housefly we all love to swat
at, except for a proboscis on their head, which is the anatomical part that allows them
to suck blood. There are 34 different species of tsetse flies, all of them fitting into
one of the three categories: savannah fly, forest fly, or riverine fly. What’s to Fear? Though a little fly may seem pretty harmless,
the tsetse fly can kill, and do so each year. Most of the deaths are in Africa- it is said
that 250,000 to 300,000 die each year from something known as the sleeping disease (the
numbers are slowly decreasing). The tsetse fly carries protozoa known as trypanosomes,
but so do many other insects. However, when someone is bitten by the tsetse fly, the protozoa
are introduced to the body and cause a disease known as the Sleeping Sickness. If not treated
properly, the disease is able to shut down necessary bodily functions, such as the endocrine
and cardiac systems. Next, the disease enters the neurological system, causing confusion
and an abnormal sleep cycle due to insomnia and slumber. The most recent notable epidemic
of the disease was in Uganda in 2008. 2. Rat Fleas (Xenopsylla cheopis) When thinking of fleas, you probably think
of a tiny insect that has landed on a household cat or dog that causes a lot of itching. Fleas
are often only 1/16 to 1/8 inch long, with a dark colored body and a mouth that is made
to be able to suck blood off of the helpless host it lands on. A flea bite, whether on
your pet or your own body, will often cause a red mark accompanied by a lot of itching.
Though there are different types of fleas that you’d find on a dog or cat, one of
the more deadly fleas is one you’d find on a rat. While rats are pretty scary to most
on their own, a flea-infested rat is even scarier, and is one that needs to be avoided. What’s to Fear? While fleas are often no bigger than the nail
on your pinky finger, they have been known to carry devastating diseases and germs, the
most notable b1eing the Yersinia pestis bacteria. This bacteria is known for causing the death
of nearly three-quarters of Europe’s population during the 14th century. Better known as the
Black Death, this plague killed between 350 and 375 million people and peaked during 1348-1350.
The rats that were often found on merchant ships are said to have spread the disease
and, due to lack of medical information and treatment, the disease spread and spread.
The plague was also never fully wiped out and for years there would be a reoccurrence
of deaths due to the deadly bacteria. While today dying from this bacteria would be rare
in the U.S. and in most places in Europe, in many third-world countries it is very possible. 1. Anopheles Mosquito (Anopheles quadrimaculatus) Once the temperature outside hits a steady
stream of temperatures above 50°F (10°C), you’ll surely start to see those pesky mosquitoes
flying around outside. You are even more likely to see them once the sun begins to go down.
As if dealing with bugs isn’t a nuisance in itself, mosquitoes are a bit more to deal
with, especially if one lands on you and decides to bite. While only female mosquitoes will
bite a human, some of them carry diseases that can be very harmful. There are about
3,500 species of mosquitoes, 200 of those living in North America, many carrying ailments
such as yellow fever, dengue, encephalitis, and even canine heartworm. What’s to Fear? A mosquito has probably bitten you at least
once before in your life, so you’re familiar with the little red bump that may swell and
really itches- nothing a little cortisone or anti-inflammatory skin cream won’t fix.
However, in some cases, a mosquito bite can lead to a lifetime of illness, or even lead
to death. One of the most widely known mosquito-borne diseases today is malaria. It is very prevalent
in tropical countries: there are about 350–500 million cases found each year and about 1-3
million people die from it each year. Malaria is said to affect at least 10% of the world’s
total population. These deaths are usually noted in sub-Saharan Africa where mosquitoes
are very prominent and proper care for malaria is scarce.

Infection prevention and control in community services

Infection prevention and control in community services


preventing and controlling healthcare
associated infections continues to be a significant challenge to health and
social care services throughout the world including here in Ireland a healthcare-associated infection is any
infection which is contracted as a direct result of treatment in or
contact with a health or social care setting. they can have a huge impact on
people causing: anxiety, upset, serious illness disability and even death. many of these infections are avoidable if simple measures are taken to address risks that can have the potential to cause such infections these measures
include good hand hygiene, training staff in infection prevention and control, ensuring all equipment and the environment is clean. Many common
infections are becoming more difficult to treat as they are resistant to
antimicrobial medication including commonly used antibiotics this isn’t part due to overuse and misuse of antibiotics it is very
important people only take antibiotics when they are needed and as prescribed it is also important that people receive the right antibiotics for the right infection type at the right time and for the correct duration this is called
antimicrobial stewardship for the first time the health information in quality
authority has developed specific national standards for community health
and social care services in Ireland which cover infection prevention and
control and antimicrobial stewardship community care services are a broad
range of services that are providedoutside of the hospital setting including primary care social care mental health and health and wellbeing services examples include residential care, home
care, general practice clinics, dental clinics, pharmacies, ambulance services and so on the standards emphasize that everyone
both staff and people using services have a role to play in preventing and
controlling infections. We can all take measures to protect ourselves and others from infection these include clean your hands and ask
staff if they have done the same. If you cough or sneeze cover your mouth and nose with a tissue dispose of the tissue and then wash your hands or use a
alcohol hand rub gel. Only use antibiotics as prescribed and ensure you get all necessary vaccinations. The national standards for infection
prevention and control in community services are available on our website www.hiqa.ie

Termites vs Ants – How to Tell the Difference Between Ants & Termites

Termites vs Ants – How to Tell the Difference Between Ants & Termites


Hey I’m Chris, the Bug Guy, from Domyownpestcontrol.com.
Today I’m going to help you determine yourself what is the difference between an ant and
a termite. There’s three distinct ways to determine between a termite and an ant. You
have body segment, you have wings, and then you have antennae. With ants you focus on
the body segments. The body segments are clearly separated between the head and the back region,
also known as the head, thorax, and abdomen. The wings in the front are bigger than the
wings in the back, also called the forewings and the hindwings. The antennae have an elbow
bend like this. Termite’s body segment has a head and tail region and there is no clear
distinct separation between those two. So you kind of have a head and a really large
body. Both wings are large and both are the same size. And then when you go to the antennae
they are very tiny and beaded and they point strait out. And that’s how you tell the difference
between ants and termites. Did you know? Termites are only found in sub-tropical and tropical
regions all over the world. Ants are found on any inhabitable continent. And did you
know there are over 2300 different types of termites worldwide, but there are over 12000
different types of ants worldwide. Whoa! Now that you know what pest you are dealing with,
you can click here to get rid of ants or click here to get rid of termites. For more videos

Hernia Mesh Infections | Hollis Law Firm

Hernia Mesh Infections | Hollis Law Firm


Hi, my name is Brett Vaughn. I’m a nurse and attorney for the Hollis Law Firm. Today I’m going to discuss hernia mesh infections. This is a very significant problem that we are observing with certain hernia meshes. And it’s impacting 10’s of thousands of individuals nationwide in the United States. In fact, our page on hernia mesh infections on our website gets over 1,000 hits a week. Hernia mesh infections are some that we should all take very seriously, because these hernia mesh infections are leading to the development super bugs or antibiotic resistant bacteria. Which one day could affect any one of us. I have a variety of hernia meshes laid out in front of me today, to help me explain what I’ve seen after evaluating thousands of these cases. And why I believe I’m seeing certain trends. Not every one of these hernia meshes are associated with high rates of infection, which is very important. The companies want to argue that infections are just normal risk associated with every surgery, but that’s just part of the truth. The rates of infections with some of these hernia meshes are unbelievably high, increasing the risk of infection by 10 to 15 times. and the infections themselves are much more severe and difficult to treat. First I want to talk about some inguinal or groin bare polypropylene hernia meshes. This one is the PerFix Plug. And this one is the 3DMax. It is actually supposed to be open like this. I’m starting with these two hernia meshes, because I don’t see high rates of infections associated with either of them. They aren’t good hernia meshes by any means, they cause a lot of complications. This one for instance folds up inside of people, it’s a big surprise huh? But I don’t see many infections. The same is true with something like Ethicon’s Prolene Hernia System, which is similar to the PerFix Plug and the 3DMax. But I’ll talk more about the Prolene Hernia System another day, I just want to say I don’t see a lot of infections with these types of meshes. I begin to see more hernia mesh infections once the mesh is placed in the abdominal cavity. However if it’s a bare polypropylene mesh that’s implanted away from the bowel, or outside of… outside of or within the abdominal muscle, I still don’t see that significant increase risk of infection. The polypropylene, it is increasing the risk of infection, and heavy-weight polypropylene will increase that risk even more than light-weight polypropylene, which is used more often now days. But the dramatic increase risk of infection happens once we start seeing coated meshes being used. And it doesn’t matter where they are implanted. When a coated mesh is used, close to the bowel or farther away, we are seeing really high rates of infection. The other times we will see high rates of infection is if it’s a bare polypropylene mesh that’s placed all the way next to the bowel, which is very dangerous and not done very often anymore. So this indicates to me that there’s something with these coated hernia meshes that are increasing the risk of and the rates infections. Figuring out exactly why these coated meshes are increasing the risk of infections so dramatically has taken a lot of time, and research, and help from experts from around the world, which we greatly appreciate. Acquiring an infection is a process, and our body has many defense mechanisms and ways to deal with bacteria that has entered our body without allowing infection to take hold. This is very important to understand, especially something that all the other plaintiff attorneys need to understand, is that these hernia meshes are impacting the infection process in different ways. They are impacting the infection process in many similar ways also, but please don’t take my C-Qur complaint and sub in Proceed. Yes, the C-Qur and the Proceed both cause infections, But the process is very different. The C-Qur was the first hernia mesh that we decided to go after for infections. Not only were there studies existing indicating that the C-Qur was associated with high rates of infections, we were also observing high rates of infections, and the C-Qur itself looks like something that you would try and grow bacteria on in science class. I want to look here at a petri dish. It has agar inside of it, and I think it looks a lot like the C-Qur hernia mesh. I believe that if there were human trials before the C-Qur was launched, the company might have figured out that when you implant a petri dish in somebody, it’s going to lead to bacteria growing and an infection. It’s also important to note that most of the meshes I have here in front of me are small versions of those meshes. Look at something like this C-Qur mesh, which is much larger than the V-Patch. One of the very first C-Qur lawsuits that we filed was a lady that was implanted with two of these very large C-Qur meshes. After several… a few years (ago), she developed horrendous infections. The C-Qur meshes had also stuck to her underlying organs. They’ve tried to remove the C-Qur meshes, they can’t. She nearly died last time they tried. They refuse to try again, because it will kill her. I’ve never seen someone maintained on a smorgasbord of such high dose I.V. antibiotics for such a long period of time. Her teeth have rotted out, her kidneys have shut down, she’s attempted suicide now and I don’t really blame her. So again this is a very important issue that we all need to take seriously. Many physicians that encounter these mesh infections are shocked that they can’t cure the infections after hitting them with very high doses of I.V. antibiotics. They shouldn’t be so surprised though, because they aren’t fighting a regular infection. They are fighting a massive biofilm. A biofilm is a like an ecosystem of bacteria, with super highways and shields, and everything necessary to survive forever. The bacteria within a biofilm becomes approximately 1,000 times more resistant to antibiotics. In many cases the dose of antibiotics necessary will kill a person before it kills the biofilm. And here’s where things can even get worse. By hitting a biofilm for months or even years at a time, with every type of antibiotic, we are essentially breeding new super antibiotic resistant bacteria, MRSA on steroids. These biofilms are also not just one strain of bacteria usually. As the biofilms persist, multiple different types of bacteria can exist within one biofilm. This is troubling because recent research into antibiotic resistant bacteria has revealed that bacteria can pass the antibiotic resistance they have developed onto other types of bacteria. The scientist were previously perplexed at how so many types of bacteria were developing such broad array of resistances so quickly. The answer ended up being that very different types of bacteria are working together to become stronger. We are implanting people with petri dishes that can’t be removed. We’re breading antibiotic resistant bacteria, this is something as a society we need to stop doing. But we can’t rely on the FDA, the FDA doesn’t care, the FDA did not even require these companies to conduct human trials. Some of these coated meshes are very difficult to properly sterilize. Many medical devices are sterilized with gamma irradiation. But polypropylene can’t be, or shouldn’t be… Ethicon, sterilized with gamma irradiation. Because it will cause polypropylene to chemically degrade. So many of these companies use something else called ETO or Ethylene Oxide, which is also a very effective sterilant, but it requires moisture to kill dry spores or endospores. Endospres are like bacteria going into hibernation and they become much harder to be killed. Endospores aren’t multiplying, so they can evade sterilization validation test. Many of these coatings are moisture sensitive. And they begin breaking down once they exposed to moisture. The C-Qur mesh is again a great example. Atrium, the company that was having problems with the fish oil coating of the C-Qur, because it was sticking to the package. And I want to try and see if I can get this up close for you. You can see spots on this mesh where it’s actually adhered to the package, it is stuck to it. The company blamed this on high humidity. And so one has to wonder is the humidity high enough during the sterilization process to kill endospores. Some of these other hernia meshes might also have problems with their sterilization process. I see really high rates of infections with Bard’s Ventralex ST also. It has a hydrogel barrier and polyglycolic acid, which is also very moisture sensitive. Another similarity between the C-Qur’s omega-3 fatty ACID coating, and the Ventralex ST’s polyglycolic ACID coating, is that they are both acidic, they have an acid type coating. These coating are designed to be resorbed, so there’s a period of time where there’s a lot of low PH goo just hanging out in the abdomen. Again, there is much more… this is a much more significant problem when you are dealing with a larger mesh, where there is a lot more coating and it has a greater potential to alter the abdominal cavity’s PH. Unfortunately there is much research out there on if, or how much these meshes are altering the PH of the abdominal cavity. There also isn’t much research on what’s happening when the PH of the abdominal cavity drops. I do know that many of the bacteria cultures I have reviewed have been bacteria that do better in lower PH environments. A low PH also inhibits the body’s normal healing process, which is likely why we are seeing massive wounds that won’t heal and require wound vacs for many months. A mesh like the Proceed hernia mesh is a lot different than the C-Qur or the Ventralex ST. But I still see a lot of infections with the Proceed. The Proceed’s coating has a tendency to separate from the polypropylene, to create an empty space. The body then does, is it fills the empty space with fluid. And the fluid pocket that forms is called a seroma, which also increases the risk of infection. The Physiomesh is also prone to seroma formation, but for a slightly different reason than the Proceed. The Physiomesh prevents proper clearance, or fluids and liquids [from] being able to to pass through. This can result in fluid buildup or a seroma formation on one side of the mesh. Then there’s hernia meshes like the Composix Kugel, which actually has a permanent barrier, which makes it different from these other ones. It’s something that we call a “material mismatch” though. This is the barrier contracts at a different rate than the polypropylene, which results in the mesh contorting, because one side shrinks quicker than the other. As this contorts and bends, it can perforate a patient’s bowel, which is another way you can cause an infection. And then a mesh like this the Parietex PCO or Parietex Composite. And it just has a collagen kinda a glycol barrier on here that doesn’t really do anything. And so they’re just putting a bare polyester mesh essentially against the bowel. Which is going to cause similar problems as putting a bare polypropylene mesh against the bowel. We are seeing a lot of infections again with this one too. Thank you for listening to me talk for so long. Hernia mesh infections are a very complex process, and we are working on other theories in addition to these, such as bacteria translocation, which would probably need a YouTube video of its own for me to properly explain. We finally have a nice camera, so please subscribe to our YouTube channel, we will have more videos soon.

So … Sometimes Fireflies Eat Other Fireflies | Deep Look

So … Sometimes Fireflies Eat Other Fireflies | Deep Look


If you think there’s something romantic
about fireflies glowing on a warm summer night… You’d be right. But what you don’t see, is the dark side
of this luminous display. Firefly flashes are a secret code, a language
of light. The light comes from a masterful bit of chemistry. A bioluminescent reaction that generates light
but no heat. So what are they saying? Well, males on the wing are advertising themselves
to females with a bit of sexy skywriting. Take the common Eastern firefly. His signature move? A fishhook-shaped maneuver. Which is why his species is sometimes called
the “Big Dipper.” Her reply is more subtle: a single, slow pulse
from her heart-shaped lantern. Our “Big Dipper” comes bearing a “nuptial
gift,” a present of more than 200 assorted nutrients… kind of like a box of chocolates. Here’s the handoff. Some are lucibufagins — defensive chemicals
fireflies secrete to ward off predators like spiders and birds. These defensive chemicals may help protect
her. Firefly codes are so reliable that anyone
can speak the language. But we’re not the only codebreakers listening
in. Meet Photuris. She’s also a firefly — a larger, stronger
one than the Big Dippers. But she has a weakness. Her species can’t make its own lucibufagins. They have fewer defenses against predators. So she sets a trap to get some. She mimics the glow of other firefly females
— luring in the males of that species. When Mr. Big Dipper shows up with his chemical
gift, she moves in… sucks up those defensive chemicals that she
desperately needs… …then makes a meal of the rest of him. Most fireflies don’t even eat during the
few weeks they spend as adults. But he’s not totally defenseless. If she’s not quick enough, he can secrete
a gooey compound that sticks in her jaw and lets him escape. Another gift from the master chemist. Hey there, it’s Lauren. I know you see that ‘Subscribe’ button there. Here’s what it’ll get you. New Deep Look episodes every two weeks. Keep up with all the weird, gross, and wonderful
things we’re working on. Thanks, and see you soon.
