Barb and that desk

Posted by johnnieraz on December 17, 2013 at 12:55 AM

By John Rezell

It's my brother Jim's birthday! Also the anniversary of the Wright Brothers' first flight.


Not even I can come up with a stretch transition to get to the point of today's news.


Nope. It goes back to Barb, my sister and the oldest of the clan.


As I've worked on my book on the early days of covering bike racing in the US, tentatively titled "A More Simple Time: How Cycling Saved My Soul," I hear Barb's voice in the back of my head over and over.


"When are you going to tell your story of Lance Armstrong?" she asked me about 10 months ago, just after Lance went on Oprah and finally spilled his guts.


"I think everyone is pretty much OD'd on Lance Armstrong," I told her.


"Sure there are a lot of people who are," she said, "but there are a lot of people who would still be interested in anything about him."


As I read my book, two things became clear.


First, without question, although my interactions with Lance Armstrong had a profound impact on me, in the grand scheme of my life as a cycling journalist, they represent small fraction of what made American cycling so dynamic at that time and what inspried me on a daily basis.


Second, without question, combining all those stories in one book means that once again Lance would overshadow the real story.


Therefore, Barb, you will get your wish. I will tell my Lance Armstrong story separately. On its own.


What's that mean for me? Oh, just a rewrite of the mammoth "A More Simple Time" and the writing of a whole new book.


Sierra graduates in six months. Time to write.

Was sind die besten Gewinnchancen in einem Casino? "Einarmige Banditen"
Einarmige Banditen
Casinos werden in erster Linie mit Roulette und Poker in Verbindung gebracht, aber Statistiken zeigen, dass 61 % der Besucher von Spielhallen ihre Zeit damit verbringen, einarmige Banditen zu spielen (Daten von 2013 von der American Gaming Association). Kick the bucket Regeln der Spielautomaten sind sehr einfach, und der niedrige Mindesteinsatz macht sie auch fur decease armsten Spieler zuganglich.

daptomycin, sold under the brand name cubicin among others, is a lipopeptide antibiotic used in the treatment of systemic and life-threatening infections caused by gram-positive organisms. it is a naturally occurring compound found in the soil saprotroph streptomyces roseosporus. its distinct mechanism of action makes it useful in treating infections caused by multiple drug-resistant bacteria.

daptomycin was removed from the world health organization's list of essential medicines in 2019. the world health organization classifies daptomycin as critically important for human medicine.


medical uses
daptomycin is indicated for use in adults in the united states for skin and skin structure infections caused by gram-positive infections, s. aureus bacteraemia, and right-sided s. aureus endocarditis. it binds avidly to pulmonary surfactant, so cannot be used in the treatment of pneumonia. there seems to be a difference in working daptomycin on hematogenous pneumonia.

adverse effects
common adverse drug reactions associated with daptomycin therapy include:

cardiovascular: low blood pressure, high blood pressure, swelling
central nervous system: insomnia
dermatological: rash
gastrointestinal: diarrhea, abdominal pain
hematological: eosinophilia
respiratory: dyspnea
other: injection site reactions, fever, hypersensitivity
less common, but serious adverse events reported in the literature include

hepatotoxicity: elevated transaminases
nephrotoxicity: acute kidney injury from rhabdomyolysis
also, myopathy and rhabdomyolysis have been reported in patients simultaneously taking statins, but whether this is due entirely to the statin or whether daptomycin potentiates this effect is unknown. due to the limited data available, the manufacturer recommends that statins be temporarily discontinued while the patient is receiving daptomycin therapy. creatine kinase levels are usually checked regularly while individuals undergo daptomycin therapy.

in july 2010, the fda issued a warning that daptomycin could cause life-threatening eosinophilic pneumonia. the fda said it had identified seven confirmed cases of eosinophilic pneumonia between 2004 and 2010 and an additional 36 possible cases. the seven confirmed victims were all older than 60 and symptoms appeared within two weeks of initiation of therapy.
