    1. Promoting coffee as an alternative to alcohol was a tactic of the temperance movement that had begun to take hold here in the early 1800s, and by the end of the century it looked as if it might actually be working. Certainly, it was more subtle than some attempts to curb drunkenness – in Islandmagee, for example, local landowner Lord Dungannon had dealt with “the appalling number of sudden, violent and premature deaths, solely from the effects of intemperance” by the simple act of smashing up all 14 pubs on the peninsula

      Replacing coffee with alcohol was a way to combat intemperance (Temperance movement)

      • example: forced addiction
        • Growing up in Canada in an indigenous community, this struck a nerve.In my childhood, I experience how the Haida first nations people of the Queen Charlotte Islands were reduced from a once proud and self-reliant culture to a dependent one living in government housing, the land they lived on denied to them and forced to live on small parcels of "Indian Reservations", their dignity stripped, and made dependent on alcohol and cigarettes.
        • It seems that modernity is simply an arrogant and corrupting force on indigeneity.
        • We see the beginning of indigenous genocide by the attempted infection by ignorant modern citizens who interact with the Jawara by attempting to hook them on the extremely destructive and addictive substances of our culture, alcohol and cigarettes

      Can I use alcohol to treat acne?

      Before jumping to a Yes or No conclusion, let's find out the connection between medical alcohol and Acne.

      In terms of the ability to use alcohol to treat acne based on science:

      Ethanol or Medical Alcohol is purely an antiseptic and oil cleaner, etc. In the medical industry, alcohol plays an important role mainly for cleaning, disinfecting and first aid use. The most basic properties of medical alcohol is to break the bonds of cell membranes and thereby kill bacteria and germs.

      Through the above explanation, it seems that you can safely use medical alcohol to treat acne on the skin. But is alcohol really that safe?

      Medical tincture due to its antibacterial and antimicrobial properties can be helpful in the treatment of Acne. However, we only use alcohol for inflammatory acne caused by bacteria called Propionibacterium Acnes. These types of acne include obvious symptoms such as swelling, redness, pores clogged with oil, dead skin, and bacteria.

The strength of the hangover will be based on the amount of alcohol that was consumed. Symptoms can range from mild to intense. In fact, sometimes the hangover feels like alcohol withdrawals. The hangover may last for one to three days. This depends on such factors as the amount of liquor consumed, the age, sex, and size of the individual. It also matters whether the person drinks regularly or only over-indulges occasionally. As you sit there shaking next to the toilet you might wonder if you have alcohol poisoning or a bad hangover. As horrible as you might feel after a night of heavy drinking, the hangover pales next to alcohol poisoning. People don’t die from a hangover, but alcohol poisoning takes six lives every single day. Alcohol poisoning is a serious health event that requires very fast intervention. That is quite different from a hangover. A hangover is just the body’s response to being overcome with toxins. If you feel badly the morning after heavy drinking it is simply a hangover. What Is a Hangover? <img class="alignright wp-image-25423 size-medium" src="https://capobythesea.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/unconsciouswoman-300x300.jpg" alt="3 day hangover alcohol poisoning" width="300" height="300" srcset="https://capobythesea.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/unconsciouswoman-300x300.jpg 300w, https://capobythesea.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/unconsciouswoman-80x80.jpg 80w, https://capobythesea.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/unconsciouswoman-768x768.jpg 768w, https://capobythesea.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/unconsciouswoman-36x36.jpg 36w, https://capobythesea.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/unconsciouswoman-180x180.jpg 180w, https://capobythesea.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/unconsciouswoman-705x705.jpg 705w, https://capobythesea.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/unconsciouswoman.jpg 800w" sizes="(max-width: 300px) 100vw, 300px" /> A hangover does not threaten your life, even if it may feel like it at the time. As the body attempts to expel the toxins, you will feel quite sick. The burden of toxins in the bloodstream affects the body and the mind. The body is confused. The drinking kept increasing the night before, but by morning the level of alcohol in the blood plummets. This sends the body into mild withdrawal symptoms that are made worse by dehydration. Hangover symptoms may include: Nausea and vomiting. Fatigue. Headache. Excess thirst and dry mouth. Sensitive to light and sounds. Feeling shaky, trembling. Dizziness or feeling like the room is spinning. Muscle aches. Feeling irritable. Mental confusion. Can’t concentrate. Sleep problems. Feeling anxious. Alcohol abuse can trigger a many responses in the body, such as the inflammatory response, dehydration, irritation of the stomach lining, expanding of blood vessels, and a decrease in blood sugar. These responses then cause the physical symptoms of a hangover. Treatment for a Hangover Although there is no silver bullet for getting through a hangover, there are some simple steps to take. These can help improve the symptoms somewhat. Drinking lots of water, as well as Gatorade, to help replace electrolytes can help. Some people swear by high carbs if you can bring yourself to eat. Also, there are over the counter meds that aid stomach distress, headache and muscle aches. Time is the best cure for a hangover. What is Alcohol Poisoning? Alcohol poisoning occurs while the person is still in the process of excessive drinking. Alcohol poisoning is caused by binge drinking, or drinking a large amount of alcohol in a short period of time. This causes more toxins to build up in the bloodstream than the body can handle. This then overwhelms the liver. Symptoms of alcohol poisoning may include: Mental confusion or stupor. Profuse vomiting. Slowed or irregular breathing. Low body temperature and chills. Decreased blood pressure. Increased heart rate. Pale skin or blue-tinged fingertips. Seizures. Unconsciousness. One of the most common causes of death due to alcohol poisoning involves the loss of the gag reflex. This can cause the person to choke on their vomit.   <img class="aligncenter wp-image-25426 size-full" src="https://capobythesea.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/alcoholpoisoning4.jpg" alt="alcohol poisoning or hangover" width="800" height="395" srcset="https://capobythesea.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/alcoholpoisoning4.jpg 800w, https://capobythesea.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/alcoholpoisoning4-300x148.jpg 300w, https://capobythesea.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/alcoholpoisoning4-768x379.jpg 768w, https://capobythesea.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/alcoholpoisoning4-705x348.jpg 705w" sizes="(max-width: 800px) 100vw, 800px" /> Treatment for Alcohol Poisoning When someone shows some of the symptoms of alcohol poisoning after binge drinking, it is so important that they receive immediate help. Once they are admitted into the emergency department, the individual will be carefully monitored. This will involve health workers that assist with breathing and prevent choking. Oxygen is given, as well as I.V. fluids that prevent dehydration. In some cases, the person will have their stomach pumped to remove excess alcohol from the system. Alcohol Use Disorder Treatment If it turns out that you have an alcohol problem you may benefit from an alcohol treatment program. These programs can help you look into your drinking behaviors and triggers. Treatment can help you make changes in the thought patterns that trigger alcohol abuse or bingeing. If there is an underlying emotional issue involved that is driving the alcohol abuse that can also be dealt with. Therapy helps you to overcome that pain and find healthy ways to manage feelings. If the alcohol abuse has been long standing, residential detox will be the first step of the treatment program. During a detox, a detox team will supervise your symptoms and offer help to ease them. Their support is vital to successfully guiding you through the detox process. Once detox is done, the active treatment phase of recovery begins. During this phase, there will be a multi-pronged treatment approach that offers a list of therapies. These activities help you make constructive changes in your habits and thoughts. Therapy can be accessed in either an outpatient or inpatient program. Outpatient rehab allows you to live at home while going through the program. An inpatient program involves a period of living at the treatment center. Following treatment, ongoing weekly therapy sessions and involvement in a local recovery support group can help sustain recovery long-term. Sober living is another good aftercare option. <img class="aligncenter wp-image-25430 size-full" src="https://capobythesea.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/brokenbottle2.jpg" alt="how to know if you have alcohol poisoning, the next day" width="800" height="300" srcset="https://capobythesea.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/brokenbottle2.jpg 800w, https://capobythesea.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/brokenbottle2-300x113.jpg 300w, https://capobythesea.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/brokenbottle2-768x288.jpg 768w, https://capobythesea.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/brokenbottle2-705x264.jpg 705w" sizes="(max-width: 800px) 100vw, 800px" /> Capo By the Sea Provides Effective Treatment for Alcohol Use Disorder Capo by the Sea is an elite treatment program serving Southern California, nestled in a quiet coastal town.

    1. Fexeel ba kër gi bañ ñàkk alkol.

      Veille à ce qu'il ne manque pas d'alcool à la maison.

      fexe+el (fexe) v. -- search/seek by all means.

      ba -- the (?).

      kër gi -- house; family.

      gi -- the (indicates nearness).

      bañ v. -- refuse, resist, refuse to; to hate; verb marking the negation in subordinate clauses.

      ñàkk v. / ñàkk bi -- vaccinate / vaccine (not sure exactly how this fits in the sentence if it's even the right translation -- perhaps it has to do with surgical alcohol rather than drinking alcohol).

      alkol ji -- (French) surgical alcohol. (I'm certain this is also used for the type of alcohol you drink -- but sangara is probably the most used term).

    1. Cessation of nitrous oxide resulted in characteristic convulsions similar to those seen in alcohol withdrawal in all mice.

      This demonstrates that tolerance is possible. However, exposure in humans lasts only several minutes at a time. Let's assume 3 exposures per day lasting 10 minutes each (i.e. 30 minutes total). It would take 68 days to reach 34 hours of exposure. Alternatively, that's a ratio of 1 to 47 exposure to non-exposure. It's unclear whether that would be sufficient for tolerance.

      In the 50% exposure group, convulsion score was effectively zero by hour 6 (from full text). This does not mean that withdrawal symptoms were gone. However, it does imply that recovery is rapid. It seems plausible that 20 hours between doses is sufficient to reach baseline, rendering tolerance in humans extremely unlikely. I will need to compare to alcohol withdrawal to confirm.

      Edit: Alcohol withdrawal in mice can be induced with 72 hours of alcohol exposure. That implies it is similar to NO. In humans, "the shakes" appear to last 1 or two weeks. In mice, convulsions appear to be half gone in 25 hours, suggesting that they last a few days. Thus, it appears that NO withdrawal is possibly an order of magnitude shorter than alcohol withdrawal.

      In conclusion, NO used in a normal fashion is unlikely to be harmful (except for risk of inducing B12 deficiency). Even if it is harmful, the short half life means that it will be apparent very quickly. I'm aware of several reports of B12 deficiency from NO abuse, but I haven't seen any reports of withdrawal symptoms.

    1. Increase in alcohol-industry funded research is a cause for concern, study suggests
      • Since 2009, alcohol companies have been funding increasingly more research - evidenced by almost 13,500 studies funded by the alcohol industry.
      • There are many legitimate fields for research, however there’s a group of these studies that claim health benefits of alcohol, or that substance abuse is a choice.
      • Another problem is that the alcohol industry funds this research through affiliate organisations, and the funding source is often not shown in those papers.
      • Researchers believe that the alcohol industry is too deeply involved, and certain studies should be conducted by independent academics.

    1. However, even moderate intake places women at higher risk for breast cancer and bone fractures

      This minimizes the chances that the benefits are due to abstainer bias. Nonetheless, I'm finding it hard to verify that there are benefits to low dose alcohol.

    1. She states that furry participants might identify as less than 100% human for reasons that she felt included, “not the least having a hangover from furry drinks the night before.” While it may be an attempt at humor, we find this comment to be egregiously offensive, derogatory, and insulting to the furry fandom and our participants. Ironically, this remark illustrates her subscription to the very stereotypes we were empirically testing and con-firms the necessity of our research.

      This comment, framed as "egregiously offensive, derogatory, and insulting to the furry fandom and our participants", undermines the prevailing sense of identity in the furry fandom. I understand the transformative powers of alcohol, but in my uneducated opinion, it's a stretch that the furry identity for many people is activated by alcohol, and is not something that exists in all states of being (e.g.: sobriety).

      This article discusses the effects of fetal alcohol exposure in adult learning by studying the effects of exercises that stimulates the hippo-campus in the adult rats that were effected by fetal alcohol exposure. The study is entirely based on the scientific research of the neurology of the participants, but provides a course of action that could be applied to human participants as well. The encouraging results indicated that partial restoration of neurological functions in the adult rats was achieved. This inspires hope of introducing exercise to human participants and warrants further exploration of the application to humans since this is not an invasive therapy with low risk to participants. This may also provide some educational changes in special education to include exercise as part of the classroom experience.

    1. fend off perceived threats from urban Catholic immigrants

      Also, the Germans

    2. Woman's Christian Temperance Union (W

      Behind the WCTU's temperance reform was "protection of the home." The slogan "For God and Home and Native Land" (later changed to "Every Land") expressed the WCTU's priorities. Through education and example the WCTU hoped to obtain pledges of total abstinence from alcohol, and later also tobacco and other drugs. The white ribbon bow was selected to symbolize purity, and the WCTU's watchwords were "Agitate - Educate - Legislate."

    3. Alcohol became big business.

    1. Temperance

      I made an earlier note on this, but it really can't be understated how important the Temperance Movement was in the triad of women's movements in 19th Century America. I feel it's overlooked because, unlike slavery and women voting, it's an issue that failed, and we generally support its failure today, but it still had an important role in organizing women in the 19th and early 20th century. Plus, Carrie Nation is one hell of a historical woman that is unfortunately too often overlooked.

    2. as well as advocating for the rights of free African Americans and of Native Americans, for temperance, and for women's rights, including suffrage

      What's interesting to me is the general intersection of the lot. The National Parks Service has a chart that shows a general outline of three movements and how leadership worked across them. It's worth taking a moment to look at, especially with the first line in this paragraph and the contemporary reality that many liberal and leftist groups today tend to trip up with intersectionality.

    1. My wife and I recently witnessed a cockroach’s ability to find and consume food. We sat down to dinner at a well-known restaurant. Right next to our table was a fairly large painting. We decided to have a glass of wine before dinner. Within minutes of arrival of the wine, a German cockroach appeared from beneath the painting and walked out to the middle of our table. Of course, our reaction was not that of normal human beings and we decided to give it some wine. I placed a small drop of wine several inches from the roach which immediately recognized the presence of food through its antennae (smell). It walked over to the drop and tasted it with its maxillary palps. The roach proceeded to suck up the entire drop (which wasn’t much smaller than the roach). It then crawled back to the picture and disappeared. Much to our surprise, within a few minutes the roach reappeared and came back on the table. Of course I gave it another drop and it repeated the entire process of smelling, tasting and consuming the drop. Once finished this time it cleaned its antennae (as shown below) and returned to the picture. A few minutes later the roach dropped from the picture and began to spin on its back. Inebriated? I would think so.
