Use and abuse of cotton buds
J R Soc Med. 2005 Aug; 98(8): 360–361.

Ear injuries caused by cotton buds are commonly seen in ear, nose and throat (ENT) practice. We asked 1000 patients attending an ENT referral clinic whether they used cotton buds to clean the ear canal. Of the 325 who responded, 171 said they did. The frequency of use was no higher in those with ear complaints than in those with nose and other complaints. 15–20% of respondents disagreed with the statements that cotton buds can cause infections, wax impaction or perforations. On the evidence of this survey, manufacturers’ warnings need to be fortified.
Cotton buds were developed in 1923 by Leo Gerstenzang.1 After observing his wife using wads of cotton on toothpicks to clean his baby’s ears, he developed a cotton-tipped swab that he considered safer. The product was initially called Q-tips Baby Gays (Q for quality) and Q-tips survive to this day. The first instances of medical concern over the use of cotton buds were in 1972 with reports of tympanic membrane perforation, otitis externa2 and cerumen impaction.3 Manufacturers then advised against use of cotton buds in the external auditory canal. Nonetheless, cotton-bud-related injuries are a common reason for attendances at ear, nose and throat (ENT) referral clinics.4 We asked patients attending an ENT clinic about the practice.
All patients attending an ENT urgent referral clinic in two months were invited to complete an anonymous questionnaire (available from authors). About 500 patients attended per month and 325 responded, with some questions answered according to a 5-point Likert scale—strongly disagree, disagree, not sure/neutral, agree, strongly agree. We also wrote to nine manufacturers and retailers of cotton buds inquiring about the wording of any warnings on packaging and how long such a warning had been present. For the two who did not reply, we made our own purchases.
325 patients, 173 male, answered the questionnaire, average age 41 years (range 9–92). In 232 patients the symptoms were ear-related, in 40 nasal, in 31 throat and in 22 other. 171 (53%) respondents said they used cotton buds to clean their ears, and the frequency in those with ear symptoms was about the same in those with other complaints. lists reasons for cotton bud use. Likert scale responses to a series of statements are summarized in . Concerning the potential complications of cotton bud use, the numbers expressing ignorance (‘strongly disagree’ or ‘disagree’) were: ‘can cause infections of the ear’ 64, ‘can cause a perforation of the eardrum’ 51, ‘can push ear wax deeper into the ear’ 47. The warnings of nine companies are shown in .

|Johnson & Johnson||‘Never insert a cotton bud into the inner ear or nose. Keep out of children’s reach. Improper use can cause injury’||Since 2001|

|Safeway||[Taken over by Morrisons]|
|Sainsbury||‘Cotton buds should not be inserted into the ear canal’||‘For years’|
|Superdrug||‘Use to gently clean around the outer surface of the ear, do not probe into the ear canal itself’||Not stated|
|Tesco||‘Do not insert bud into the ear canal’||No reply|
|Waitrose||‘Cotton buds should not be inserted into the ear canal’||Since 2000|
Ear wax is a mixture of ceruminous gland secretions, squames of epithelium, dust and other foreign debris. 5 It is expelled by epithelial migration from the tympanic membrane, aided by movements of the temporomandibular joint.6 This process renders the ear ‘self-cleaning’. Unwise efforts with a cotton bud can produce wax plug impaction, with resultant discomfort, deafness and vertigo,7 injury to the external auditory canal or perforation of the tympanic membrane.2,8 Otitis externa can likewise be caused by overzealous use of cotton buds.9
The survey reported here is best regarded as qualitative. The response rate was too low for quantitative validity, and we cannot tell whether the behaviour of the ENT patients typified that of the wider population—or whether, indeed, some of them had cotton-bud-induced disorders. What the survey does indicate is that warnings against use in the ear canal are quite widely discounted or ignored. Most cotton bud users, when asked why they did it, merely said ‘it seems like a good idea’ or family and friends use them. Fortunately, only a small number had been advised to do so by medical professionals. We have to admit that a large number of people use cotton buds without coming to harm and the actual risk remains to be elucidated. Cotton bud manufacturers are explicit in their warnings against use in the ear, but on the evidence of this survey these warnings need to be stronger.
We thank Ellen Jones, Julio Rodriguez, Abdul Beebeejaun and Veenawyn Seeram for help in collating patient questionnaires and Mr Henry Grant for suggestions on the study design.

ICYMI: Cotton Speaks on Statesmanship at the Claremont Institute’s Churchill Dinner
Washington, D.C. — On Saturday, April 14, Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) spoke on statesmanship during his keynote address to the Claremont Institute’s 2018 Annual Dinner in Honor of Sir Winston S. Churchill, where he received the Institute’s Statesmanship Award. Below are his remarks as prepared for delivery:
Thank you all very much for the warm welcome. To my old teacher and friend, Charles Kesler, thank you for that kind introduction. After that, even I am interested in what I’m going to say tonight.
It’s good to be back at the Claremont Institute. This dinner in honor of our hero Sir Winston Churchill is something of an annual reunion for all of us. We’re here tonight to show our continued support for the Institute. I know you all hope to see its work shape the direction of our country, including its alumni rising to high positions of influence in government, media, and business. And when that happens, it’s natural to ask one to return for an occasion like this. So tonight, let me simply say: I’m sorry you’re stuck with me instead.
Twenty-one years ago this summer, I participated in the Institute’s Publius Fellowship Program. That’s where I got to know Charles, Larry Arnn, and so many others who have remained friends and counselors ever since. As important, I learned a lot about the American political tradition—not abstract philosophy or practical politics, but how the two come together in the American founding and across our history. That’s the craft of statesmanship, a subject central to Claremont’s mission.
Statesmen are not uniquely American, of course, as evidenced by the man we honor tonight. But wherever and whenever we find them, they grapple with the same fundamental questions about human life. For instance, it’s been 53 years since Winston Churchill died, and the world has changed a lot, but we’re still facing a central question to which he dedicated himself: How ought a free people govern themselves? This is the question of self-government by citizens. It’s also a question of what we can expect from our statesmen.
Churchill liked to say that a key distinction between nations is whether “the people own the government, or the government owns the people.” The former condition, the only tolerable one, is what he called “civilization” or a “society based upon the opinion of civilians.” By that he meant that violence gave way to order; crime, warfare, and tyranny gave way to parliaments, law courts, and stability: a country where one could live his life in safety, free from coercion and oppression. He echoed Alexander Hamilton, who wrote in Federalist 1 that the American experiment would show the world whether mankind could be governed by “reflection and choice” instead of “accident and force. ” The two statesmen echo across the ages because both of our countries aspire to the same standard of civilization, where, Churchill said, “a wider and less harassed life is afforded to the masses of the people.”
Churchill, like any one of us here, ranked the “citizen higher than the state,” but that raises the question of what exactly is a citizen? It’s not a subject or a vassal or a serf. It’s a free and equal member of a distinct and particular political community. This is particularly true for our nation of immigrants, where there’s no crown to which we pledge loyalty; no ties of kinship hold us together.
Instead, what unites us is a shared way of life toward shared purposes, which finds its most direct expression in the laws we make for ourselves through our elected representatives. Like Lincoln before him, Churchill located the “highest expression” of these ideas in the “American Declaration of Independence.”
The statesman needs to understand that the rule of law, made by the elected representatives of free and equal citizens, is what sets us apart. It’s reasonable for our citizens to expect this from our statesmen, and for them to expect our statesmen to put their interests first in making our laws. And after the Declaration and the Constitution, is there any more fundamental law than the rule we set for how other people can join our shared political community?
Our Founders understood all this, but I’m sorry to say that today too many elites in both parties do not. Immigration was an issue of signal importance in the 2016 election, and it remains so today. That makes sense, because immigration is more than just another issue. It touches upon fundamental questions of citizenship, community, and identity. And for too long, a bipartisan, cosmopolitan elite has dismissed our people’s legitimate concerns about these things and tended to put its own interests and the interests of foreigners above the national interest.
No one captured this sensibility better than our last president, when he famously called himself “a citizen of the world. ” With that phrase, he revealed a deep misunderstanding of the nature of citizenship. After all, “citizen” and “city” share the same Latin root word: citizenship by definition means that you belong to a particular political community. Yet many of our elites share his sensibility. They believe that American citizenship—real, actual citizenship—is meaningless, ought not be foreclosed to anyone, and ought not be the basis for distinctions between citizens and foreigners. You might even say they think American exceptionalism lies in not making exceptions when it comes to citizenship.
But this mindset is not only foreign to most Americans. It’s also foreign to the Anglo-American political tradition, as Churchill proclaimed repeatedly in defense of the principles of the “English-speaking peoples.” Take the Declaration of Independence. Our cosmopolitan elites love to cite its stirring passages about the rights of mankind when they talk about immigration or refugees. They’re not wrong to do so. Unlike any other country, America is an idea—but it is not only an idea. America is a real, particular place with real borders and real, flesh-and-blood people. And the Declaration tells us it was so from the very beginning. Prior to those stirring passages about “unalienable Rights” and “Nature’s God,” in the Declaration’s very first sentence in fact, the Founders say it has become “necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands” that tie them to another—one people, not all people, not citizens of the world, but actual people who make up actual colonies. The Founders frequently use the words we and us throughout the Declaration to describe that people.
Furthermore, on several occasions, the Declaration speaks of “these Colonies” or “these States.” The Founders were concerned about their own circumstances. They owed a duty to their own people who had sent them as representatives to the Second Continental Congress in Philadelphia. They weren’t trying to free South America from Spanish or Portuguese dominion, much as they might have condemned that dominion. Perhaps most notably, the Founders explain towards the end of the Declaration that they had appealed not only to King George for redress, but also to their fellow British citizens, yet those fellow citizens had been “deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity.” Consanguinity!—blood ties! That’s pretty much the opposite of being a citizen of the world. So while the Declaration is of course a universal document, it’s also a particular document about one nation and one people. Its signers pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor to each other, in English, right here in America—not in Esperanto to all mankind in Brussels. But our cosmopolitan elites are heedless of this distinction. They think because anyone can believe the same things as an American, we’re morally obligated to treat everyone like an American.
Anything less, they say, is a betrayal of our ideals. But that’s wrong. Just because you can become an American doesn’t mean you are an American. And it certainly doesn’t mean we must treat you as an American, especially if you don’t play by our rules. After all, in our unique brand of nationalism, which connects our people through our ideas, repudiating our law is kind of like renouncing your blood ties in the monarchical lands of old. And what law is more central to a political community than who gets to become a citizen, under what conditions, and when? While we wish our fellow man well, it’s only our fellow citizens to whom we have a duty and whose rights our government was created to protect. And among the highest obligations we owe to each other is to ensure that every working American can lead a dignified life. If you look across our history, I’d argue that’s always been the purpose of our immigration system: to create conditions in which normal, hard-working Americans can thrive.
Look no further than what James Madison said on the floor of the House of Representatives in 1790, when the very first Congress was debating our very first naturalization law. He said, “It is no doubt very desirable that we should hold out as many inducements as possible for the worthy part of mankind to come and settle amongst us, and throw their fortunes into a common lot with ours. ” “The worthy part,” not the entire world. Madison continued, “But why is this desirable? Not merely to swell the catalogue of people. No, sir, it is to increase the wealth and strength of the community.”
“To increase the wealth and strength of the community.” That’s quite a contrast to today’s elite consensus. Our immigration system shouldn’t serve the interests of foreigners or merely wealthy Americans. No, it ought to benefit all Americans and serve our common good—that’s the purpose of immigration and the obligation of a statesman.
The government is our creation, after all. As self-governing citizens, we exercise our sovereignty by electing representatives to tend to our affairs, protect our interests, and preserve our liberty. And that’s what we expect: that the men and women we elect will care for our common concerns. They should be far-sighted and prudent. They should not put the interests of foreigners and foreign nations before ours, or succumb to abstractions and intellectual fads. But today, we have too many elites who do just that and not enough statesmen. Too many act like Mrs. Jellyby, obsessed with Borrio-boola-Gha and the well-being of its residents rather than what’s best for their fellow citizens.
This is foolhardy, as the recent immigration debates have shown, and it’s dangerous as well. That’s because a self-governing citizenry expects its statesmen not only to put their interests first, but also to manage those affairs that we cannot handle individually. This is nowhere more true than the common defense of a democracy. Churchill struggled mightily in the 1930s to do just this, against the wishful thinking of others in the government. He failed in part because of what an old Claremont Institute fellow, the late Bill Rood, called the “democratic strategic deficit.” Democratic peoples have a dangerous inclination to believe that war is no longer possible. We organize our lives around negotiation, compromise, and consent. Violence is strictly controlled and aberrational in our societies. Commerce and other peaceful pursuits dominate our lives. There’s a natural tendency among democratic peoples therefore to believe that these principles apply in international relations as well.
But they don’t. The world is a struggle for mastery and dominance of the international order, in which you run the show or the show runs you. Dictators organize their domestic order with force and violence and live in constant fear for their own lives and grasp on power, so they understand this all too well.
Because the United States dominates the world order today, we need to understand these things and overcome this strategic deficit even more than most. What revisionist powers want to revise, after all, is our role in the world. For all the tensions between great-power rivals like Russia and China or outlaw nations like Iran and North Korea, they can all agree on sticking it to the United States. We’re often slow to this realization. Against the risks of deterrence and the horrors of war, Americans are apt to conciliate an incremental aggressor, no less than any other democratic people. Unfortunately, this is not a strategic approach.
Nor does it yield sound strategic forecasts. Former Secretary of Defense Bob Gates testified to the Armed Services Committee a few years back: “Our record since Vietnam in predicting where and how we will be engaged militarily next—even a few months out—is perfect: we have never once gotten it right. We never expected to be engaged militarily in Grenada, Lebanon, Libya (twice), Iraq (now three times), Afghanistan, the Balkans, Panama, Somalia, Haiti, and, most recently, West Africa to combat Ebola.” To which we must now add Syria, too. America is a continental nation, full of riches, an ingenious people, and a fearsome military. We have a larger margin of error than small, weak, poor countries in Eurasia. But we cannot afford large strategic mistakes or small ones indefinitely.
The answer to the democratic strategic deficit is better, more strategic-minded statesmanship. It falls to us in the government, whether elected or appointed officials, to understand the world as it is, not as we might wish it to be, and to do what’s necessary to protect our people against hostile powers bent on our destruction. It’s what our citizens expect of us, and it’s the fundamental reason they hire us in the first place. The good news is, the strategic mindset has a long pedigree in American statecraft, so it’s something to recover, not something to introduce. The father of our country, our first president, proclaimed it when he said, “To be prepared for war is one of the most effective means of preserving the peace.”
Not hoping for peace, not wishing for it, not entrusting it to other nations or international organizations—Washington knew none of those things preserve the peace. Only preparing for war does. And not only that. Being prepared for war is also what allows the United States to defend the cause of justice. In his famous Melian Dialogue, Thucydides records a perverted view of justice that is regrettably all too common across the ages: “the strong do what they will, while the weak suffer what they must.” But when the strong are also the just, then the weak have no need to fear them. Or as Bill Rood put it, “It is only the strong that can afford to be kind and only the strong that can protect the weak. ”
“Only the strong can protect the weak”—perhaps that in a nutshell says what our elites have forgotten. Only when our citizens are strong and flourishing can our country prosper. Only when our government has the strength and energy to protect our citizens can we also be a beacon of hope to the world.
And if he were here tonight, I suspect Sir Winston would agree. It’s not for nothing that this man, who loved Great Britain so dearly, nevertheless declared that the “great men who founded the American Constitution” created “a system of law and liberty under which they thrived and reached the physical and . . . the moral leadership of the world.” It is the American statesman’s duty to preserve that moral leadership, to protect our system of “law and liberty” on behalf of our fellow citizens. It’s also the mission of the Claremont Institute, and I thank you for your devotion to the philosophical foundation of the American experiment in self-government. I am humbled to receive your Statesmanship Award, and I am honored to join you in this noble effort.
God bless you, and God bless the United States of America.

90,000 Steamship history – History of things
The first steamer in history that could be used in shipping was invented by the Irish mechanical engineer Robert Fulton, a self-taught genius who was born into a family of poor peasants. Fulton tested his first, imperfect steamer in 1803 on the River Seine in Paris. It could be said that the experiment was a success, the ship stayed afloat for 1.5 hours, the speed that the steamer developed reached 5 km / h.
The next paddle steamer, the Claremont, was built by Fulton in 1807.On it he installed Watt’s steam engine. The steamer was 43 meters long, the engine power reached 20 horsepower, and the carrying capacity was 15 tons. The Claremont managed to make its first voyage in 1807 along the Hudson. The entire journey, the length of which is 150 miles (270 km), from New York to Albany, with a headwind and upstream, the vessel covered in 32 hours. It was thanks to “Claremont” that the beginning of the steam shipping company was laid.
The construction of steamships, after that, began in other countries.Next, attempts are made to improve all types of maritime transport. So on the transatlantic line in 1819 between America and Europe the steamship “Savannah” began its journey. He was bringing cotton to England. The Savannah was on the way for 26 days. In 1819, this steamer also visited the St. Petersburg port. This was the first foreign ship to visit Russia.
In 1825, the journey from London to Calcutta was completed in 113 days by the English steamer “Enterprise”. The vessel “Curazo” from Holland covered the distance from Holland to the West Indies in 32 days.But in the 40s of the XIX century, marine shipbuilding developed rather slowly. It was not possible to immediately eliminate the flaws in the design, which were revealed during operation, and this slowed down the construction of steamships.
The impetus for the rapid development of marine shipbuilding was the fundamental changes in the designs of steamships and engines. An important role was played by the use of new building materials for the creation of ships. The transition to the construction of hulls made of iron and steel was of the greatest importance in shipbuilding.
The first propeller steamer in history was invented and built in 1838 by the English engineer-inventor Smith. He named his brainchild “Archimedes”. Further improvements in screw steamers led to the fact that by the end of the 40s the propeller screw quickly began to displace paddle wheels.
The appearance of the first steamships, on which it became possible to make regular ocean voyages, should be attributed to the early thirties of the XIX century. And at the end of the 30s, steamboats began to operate regularly on flights from Europe to America and back.A little later on the steamer it was possible to get to other continents. For the first time a round-the-world trip on a steamer was made in 1842. Like railways, steamship lines were able to ensure speed of movement and its regularity, as well as reduce the cost of transporting goods.

What are BMX bicycles
BMX bikes are designed for those who do not separate themselves from the bike. This is a way of life, the perception of oneself and technology as a whole. For this couple, nothing is possible. The tricks are performed on special models that are durable and reliable.This is a separate direction in cycling technology.
The main division is carried out into 2 types of disciplines – cross on dirt roads with obstacles and stunts. Based on this specific use of the bike, models are created. Base models:
But the possibilities of extreme sports are constantly expanding and new developments are added. Vert, Dert, Street joined the BMX lineup. BMX bike shop offers models for beginners and extreme sports. They differ in options, but are consistently high quality and reliable.
Racing is the basic model from which extreme skiing began to flourish. The design has a light frame, brakes on the rear wheels, a clear tread.
On the Streets they ride on curbs, steps, railings. The model has a narrow steering wheel and increased maneuverability. Pegs are installed on the comfortable side.
Verts are made for somersaults and flying.These are the same Streets, but the tread pattern is less pronounced, pegs on both wheels.
Over each new type, the designers work carefully to ensure maximum safety and comfort. In extreme riding models, the installed:
- hard brakes or none at all;
- frame in the form of two triangles;
- saddle with a low rise or not.
Part of the models without shock absorbers, all models are lightweight, easy to disassemble and assemble.The Lefties in our country have not yet died out. Many bikers select components for themselves and often change worn out or outdated parts. After several years of work, only the frame and wheels remain of the old model.
The material of the bike is selected to be durable and lightweight. The frame is often made of aluminum or chrome-molybdenum. The metal is subjected to a special treatment to strengthen the structure in the most vulnerable places. Thickening is made on the fork and feathers, which makes the fastening reliable.
Wheels are small (20 ″), but reinforced.This feature allows you to reduce the weight of the bike and provide maneuverability when performing tricks. Bush with 2 bearings, double or triple chambered rims. BMX bikes in are presented in all variants.
Sitting. For models of extreme use, this structural element has a different purpose. During the performance of tricks, they lean on it with their hand, squeeze it with their knees, lean on it with their feet or stand on it. It all depends on what maneuvers are performed by its owner.For the BMX master, it is a tool with which he demonstrates his skill. Hence the requirements – strong fastening, non-slip coating, comfortable design.
The steering wheel must be solid, without seams. In this case, it will withstand the load. Another point is rotation around its axis. The steering wheel should turn easily, be absolutely obedient and not turn too fast.
Brakes get in the way of many professionals. Immediately after purchasing a new bike, they are removed, so the companies have taken this trend into account and release some BMX models without brakes.
The speeds in bikes are not regulated. This is understandable, because the purpose of cycling is to perform tricks, not to race. One drive at one speed is all a BMX needs.
For additional leg support, a peggy is installed on the rear and front wheels. This expands the ability to do unthinkable elements and surprise colleagues and shock the audience (well, where can we go without it).
How to choose, what to look for
Finding a model for such a specific purpose is not easy, but possible.It is important to know the subtleties of choice and where to buy BMX bike at an affordable price. In principle, there are no trifles and minor details in BMX bikes.
- The handlebars and stem should be solid, preferably aluminum. This will provide a low weight of the structure and the required strength.
- The frame must be solid, preferably chrome-plated steel or aluminum alloy.
- Wide pedals with small spikes. The leg is securely located on such a surface, does not slip and at the same time moves freely.
- The best three-piece connecting rods. In the absence of such an option, choose two-component.
- If there is a need for brakes, the best option for v-brake or u-brake tricks.
- The gyro rotor allows the steering wheel to rotate without fear of entanglement in the brake cables.
- Rubberized handlebar pads provide a secure grip between the hand and the handle.
- If the model is intended for a street or flatland, the seating may not be available, the frame must be reinforced.
- Racers are very long, which is important for ski jumping, racing on dirt tracks, artificial hills and embankments.
10. Bushings, carriages and head tube must be closed. Such a small detail will make it easier to care for your bike.
11. Pads for arms and legs – although they are not elements of the bike, they will protect against injuries during training and competitions.
Beginners should not choose an expensive model of a promoted brand. Better to give preference to a bike in the middle price category.It is important that the frame is reinforced and can withstand the loads.
Samples from Norco, Haro, BSD are suitable for cross. It is better to choose stunt models from the brands Giant, GT, Author.
Do not be guided by the popularity of the company. Mid-level firms produce decent cheap models that are not inferior to expensive branded items.
Sale of BMX bicycles is carried out in special stores. It is difficult to separate the bike from the owner. Together they form one whole, capable of rejoicing at each conquered peak and suffering after injuries and failures.
90,000 Manuscript of Omnipotence read online by Deborah Harkness (Page 4)
The library scent – a mixture of ancient stone, dust, carpenter beetles and old rag paper – lifts my spirits every time. The sun streaming through the staircase windows illuminated the dancing motes and last year’s lecture schedules. Very soon, when the floodgates open and hordes of students flood the city, there will be fresh announcements here.
Singing softly, I nodded to the busts of Thomas Bodley and King Charles I at the entrance to the reading room, entered and immediately heard the voice of the manager:
– We’ll have to put him in Selden End.
The library has just opened, but the staff are already having problems. Previously, I observed such a fuss only in the case of a visit from especially eminent scientists.
– He’s already there. Made an order and is waiting. – Yesterday’s librarian girl was holding a stack of books. “This, too, was brought from the New Bodleian Hall.
East Asian literature was kept there – not my subject.
– Take him and tell him that the ordered manuscripts will arrive within an hour. – With these words, the agitated Mr. Johnson disappeared into his office.
“Hi Diana,” Sean greeted me, raising his eyes to the ceiling. – To give out what is left for you?
– Yes, please. – It’s good that you won’t have to wait. – Looks like you’re having a great day?
– Yeah. “Sean disappeared into the pantry, where the books were locked for one night, and returned with my treasures. – Place number?
– A4. “I always sat there in the southeastern corner of Selden End, where natural light was best.
“You see, Dr. Bishop,” Mr. Johnson jumped up at once, “Professor Claremont took the A3 place.Perhaps it will be more convenient for you on A1 or A6. – The manager nervously shifted from foot to foot, eyes blinking behind the thick glass.
– Professor Claremont ?!
– Yes. He works with Niedem’s notes – he needs good light and space to spread them out.
– Joseph Needham, historian of Chinese science? – There is a hot spot in the area of my solar plexus.
– Yes. He was also a biochemist, hence the interest of Professor Claremont. “Mr. Johnson’s concern grew by the second.- Well, how is it? Are you willing to borrow A1?
– Better than A6. – Sitting next to a vampire, at least through one place, somehow did not smile at me, and sitting opposite on A4 was completely unthinkable. Try to focus under that gaze. If the tables in the medieval wing were more comfortable, I would have sat under one of the gargoyles guarding the narrow windows, and somehow I would have suffered Gillian Chamberlain’s disapproval.
– Excellent. Thank you for your understanding, ”Mr. Johnson sighed with relief.
Entering the bright Selden End, I squinted. Claremont looked as good as the day before, but his skin was pale in contrast to his black hair. Today he wore a gray pullover with green dots, as well as – as he glanced under the table – asphalt-colored trousers, matching socks and black boots that cost more than the entire wardrobe of the average teacher.
The feeling of anxiety returned. Why is he sitting in the library and not in his laboratory?
I didn’t even think about treading quieter than usual, but the vampire, deep in reading, didn’t seem to notice me.He sat diagonally, at many empty tables away from me. I put my plastic bag and books in place of the A5, marking the boundaries of my territory – only then he raised his eyebrows in obvious surprise.
– Dr. Bishop! Good morning.
– Professor Claremont. – He probably heard everything that was said on the issue – they have hearing like bats. Without looking into his eyes, I began to take my property out of the package and erected a whole fortress wall between us. Claremont waited until I had finished, and then plunged into reading again.
I connected the cable to the computer, plugged it into a power outlet under the table. When I straightened up, the vampire was still reading, diligently suppressing a smile.
“I’d rather sit on the north side,” I muttered, searching for my book list.
Claremont raised his dilated pupils at me.
– Am I bothering you, Dr. Bishop?
– No, what are you. “My throat tightened at the sudden, pungent scent of cloves. – I just wonder how you sit in the sun.
– Do you really believe everything you read in the books? – A black eyebrow arched with a question mark.
– So, do I think that you are about to catch fire? No, I don’t think so. “Vampires don’t burn in the sun, and they don’t have fangs either.” These are all myths invented by people. “But I have never seen any of you like to bask in the sun.
Claremont didn’t budge, but I could swear he stifled a laugh.
– Do you have a lot of experience with people like me, Dr. Bishop?
How does he know? The feelings of vampires, of course, are acute, but they do not possess anything supernatural like mind reading.This is only found in sorcerers and rarely in demons. “This is how it works in nature,” my aunt explained to me when I didn’t fall asleep as a child for fear that a vampire would steal my thoughts and fly out the window with them.
– It seems to me, Professor Claremont, that even many years of experience would not give an answer to the question I am now asking myself.
– I’ll be happy to answer if I can. Claremont closed his book. He behaved patiently, like a teacher with an aggressive and not very capable student.
– What question are you asking yourself?
He relaxed back in his chair.
– I want to understand how Dr. Needham’s views on morphogenesis developed.
– Changes in germ cells leading to differentiation …
– I know what morphogenesis is, Professor Claremont. That’s not what I asked.
He curled his lips. I crossed my arms over my chest in a defensive gesture.
– I understand. Leaning his elbows on the table, he folded his long fingers into a house. “Yesterday I came to the Bodleian Library to look at some manuscripts and decided to get my bearings at the same time – I don’t come here often. Then I saw you on the gallery and discovered something unexpected for myself. The corner of his mouth twitched again.
I blushed, remembering my witchcraft – and for what? To take a book off the shelf. The fact that he titled the library by its full name struck me as very sweet, but I tried not to show it.
Careful, Diana, I said to myself. “He’s making you look bad.”
– Are you saying that a vampire and a witch, sitting decorously over the manuscripts, like the most ordinary readers, is just a strange coincidence?
– I can hardly pass for an ordinary reader.Claremont leaned forward a little, his pale face radiating a faint but distinct glow in the light. – But on the whole, you are right. This is just a series of coincidences, quite understandable.
– I thought scientists no longer believed in coincidences.
“Some people have to, against their will,” Claremont replied with a low laugh. He looked right at me, and it got on my nerves. The librarian girl wheeled an old wooden cart filled with stacks of manuscripts to his desk. – Thank you, Valerie. The vampire looked at her.- I appreciate your help.
“I’m always glad to help you, Professor Claremont,” Valerie blushed, embarrassed. The vampire charmed her effortlessly. – If you need something else, please contact, – she stammered and retired to her little room at the entrance.
Claremont took the top folder from the cart and untied the straps.
– I don’t want to distract you anymore …
Like this. I had enough dealings with senior colleagues to keep silent: my answer would only worsen the situation.I opened my laptop, turned it on by pressing the button with excessive force, untied the first folder, following the vampire’s example, and placed the book in the reading tray.
I spent the next hour and a half rereading the first page. The book began with poems attributed to George Ripley [The famous 15th century English alchemist] – they promised to reveal the secrets of the philosopher’s stone. Against the backdrop of this morning’s surprises, the descriptions of how to create the Black Dragon, the Green Lion, and how to mix mystical blood from chemical ingredients seemed even more hazy than usual to me.
But Claremont showed good results – his mechanical pencil “Mont Blanc-Meisterstuck” and flew on paper. Hearing the rustle of the pages he turned, I gritted my teeth and began reading again.
Mr. Johnson sometimes walked around the hall to see if we were spoiling the books for an hour. The vampire continued to scribble, I glared at both angrily.
At 10.45 a familiar tickling warned me of the arrival of Gillian Chamberlain. She sped straight to me – to share her impressions of Meybon.At the sight of the vampire, she dropped the bag of paper and pencils, and he looked at her until she retreated back to the medieval department.
At 11.10 I felt a light kiss on the back of my head – a coffee-addict demon from the music hall crept up behind me. Kicking off his white plastic headphones, he nodded to Matthew and sat down at one of the library computers. “DEFECTIVE. CALL THE TECHNICIAN, “it said on the screen, but the demon continued to sit as if nothing had happened. At times he glanced over his shoulder or stared at the ceiling, as if he could not understand how, in fact, he got here.
I dug into Ripley, feeling Claremont’s cold gaze on the top of my head.
At 11.40 the same icy gaze rested on my back.
It was too much. Sarah had always said that for ten people there was necessarily one different, but today in the hall of Duke Humphrey there were five times more others than there should be. And where did they come from?
Jumping up abruptly, I turned around. A chubby-cheeked vampire with tonsure and an armful of medieval service books was just sitting down in a chair too small for him.Under my furious gaze, he squeaked in fright. Then he saw Clairmont, became an order of magnitude whiter (it turns out, vampires also turn pale), bustlingly bowed his head and slipped away into a dark corner.
Several people and three others visited Selden End during the day.
Two vampires who look like sisters walked past Claremont to the shelves of local history literature. They took a book about the primitive inhabitants of Bedfordshire and Dorset and began to scribble something for the sake of appearance in notebooks. Claremont twisted his neck to the whisper of one of them so that in a normal creature it would immediately break.His soft hiss made the hairs on the back of my head stand on end. The vampires exchanged glances and left as quietly as they entered.
The third was an elderly man. He stood for a long time in the bright sun and admiringly examined the leaded window frames before looking at me. He was dressed in the usual academic style – a brown tweed jacket with suede patches at the elbows, swamp green corduroy trousers, a shirt in pure cotton with a stand-up collar and a blot on the pocket. The goose bumps told me he was a sorcerer, but I hadn’t met him before.
I returned to reading, but slight pressure in the back of my head prevented me from continuing. When it moved to my ears and forehead, panic seized me. This is no longer a greeting, but a threat, but why on earth would an unfamiliar sorcerer threaten me?
With ostentatious ease, he walked to my table, and a whisper was heard in my aching head. I couldn’t make out the words. It was clear that the sorcerer was whispering – if only he knew who he was.
Get out of my head, I said mentally, holding my forehead.
Claremont moved in an instant and was next to me – one hand on the back of my chair, the other flat on the table. His broad shoulders hung over me like the wings of a hawk over prey.
– Are you all right?
“In full,” I muttered, completely confused. Why does a vampire protect me from a magician like me?
A reader on the mezzanine stretched out her neck to see what kind of noise was there. She frowned – anyone would pay attention to a witch, a sorcerer, and a vampire if they got together.
“Leave me alone, people are watching,” I hissed.
Claremont, standing up to his full height with his back to the sorcerer, shielded me from him like a guardian angel.
– Sorry, – said the sorcerer, – I thought this place was free … – His steps began to recede, and the pressure in my head gradually disappeared.
The vampire’s hand, after hovering over my shoulder, returned to the back of the chair. A cool breeze blew over me.
“You are so pale,” Claremont said quietly.- Do you want me to take you home?
– No. I shook my head, hoping that he would leave and let me pack myself. A reader from the mezzanine was watching us suspiciously.
– Let me, Dr. Bishop.
– No! I repeated, louder than necessary. – I will not allow myself to survive from this library – neither you nor anyone else.
Claremont, breathing cloves and cinnamon, bent over me, made sure I was not joking, pursed his lips and returned to his seat.
The voltage has been discharged.I got to the second page with half a sin, Claremont filling out one notebook after another with the air of a judge passing judgment on an extremely difficult case.
By three o’clock, my nerves were completely surrendered. The day was wasted.
I packed my things, put the manuscript in a folder.
– Going home, Dr. Bishop? Claremont asked softly, but with a twinkle in his eyes.
– Yes, – I snapped.
The vampire assumed a deadpan look.
All evil spirits followed me with their eyes – a mysterious sorcerer, Gillian, a vampire monk, even a demon.I did not know the librarian who worked in the afternoon, since I never left at that time. Mr. Johnson pushed his chair back slightly, saw that it was me, and looked at his watch in surprise.
Throwing open the glass doors of the library, I went out – but to recover, I needed more than fresh air.
A quarter of an hour later, dressed in stretched leggings, a New College Boat Club T-shirt, pullover and trainers, I went for a run.
I felt a little better by the river.One of the doctors who used me in childhood and adolescence called my anxiety attacks adrenaline poisoning. My body, he explained, for some unknown reason, is in a state of alert all the time. Another specialist, in all seriousness, told Aunt Sarah that this was the legacy of their ancestors, hunter-gatherers. The excess adrenaline in the blood should be reduced by running, following the example of an antelope running away from a lion.
Unfortunately for that doctor, I was with my parents in the Serengeti and saw how it happens in reality.The fate that befell the antelope made a very strong impression on me.
Since then I have tried both medications and meditation, but physical activity was the best way to relieve panic. In Oxford, I rowed – in the morning, until the boat crews came out onto a narrow river. Now the period was also right.
Crunching on the gravel, I waved to the boatman Pete, who was fiddling with the jack and lubricant, repairing the damage done by the athletes. She stopped at the seventh pier, caught her breath, took the key from the top of the lantern by the barn.
Inside, boats stood on stands, white and yellow: big eights for men, a little narrower for girls, and others, of all shapes and sizes. On the bow of a completely new, not yet equipped boat, there was a sign: “’THE LOVER OF THE FRENCH LIEUTENANT’ TO TAKE ONLY WITH THE PERMISSION OF THE PRESIDENT OF THE CLUB.” The name of the boat, named after the New College graduate who created the character, [referring to the writer John Fowles.] Was neatly printed on board in Victorian script.
Behind hung by ropes a little boat less than twelve inches wide, but a good twenty-five feet long.God bless Pete, who leaves the skiff at hip level for easier removal. On the seat was a note: “Next Monday, the boat will be back on the slipway: team practice.”
I took off my sneakers, took the oars with bent blades from the rack by the door, carried them to the dock and returned for the boat.
She lowered the skiff into the water, put her foot on the can so that it would not float away, put the oars into the oarlocks. Holding them with one hand like a pair of very large chopsticks, I carefully got into the boat and pushed off.
Rowing was like a religion for me, a set of rituals to help meditation. It all started from the moment of touch, but the real magic was when I entered the rhythm and rowed at full strength. Since my student days, this sport has calmed me like nothing else.
The oars plunged into the water, slid over it. I accelerated my pace, straining my legs, feeling the elastic pressure of the water. The wind blew through me with every dash.
When the rhythm was established, I began to feel the feeling of flying.In these blissful moments I was floating in space and time – a weightless body on a river running somewhere. My boat was racing forward, and I made a single whole with it and the oars. I closed my eyes and broke into a smile. Everything that happened today was losing its meaning.
Behind closed eyelids, it became dark, and a traffic rumbled overhead: I passed under the Donnington Bridge. Stepping out into the sun again, I opened my eyes, and a cold vampire gaze immediately rested on my chest.
A figure in a long flowing coat stood on the bridge.I couldn’t distinguish faces, but judging by the height and shoulder width, it was Matthew Claremont. Again!
Swearing, I almost missed the oar. The city pier is not far away – that would be to cross to the other side and ride a vampire with an oar on a stucco head. Or, say, a hook. Pondering this forbidden and extremely seductive maneuver, I saw a slender woman in a paint-stained overalls on the dock. She smoked a cigarette and spoke on her cell phone — not a common sight on the Oxford dock.
She looked up and I felt a jolt. Demon. The woman grinned like a wolf and said something into her phone.
Just no gate. First, Claremont, followed by a whole tail of various evil spirits. I gave up my plan and put my alarm on rowing, but all the pleasure of the boat trip was gone.
Turning the boat around at the Isis tavern, I spotted Claremont. He got here from Donnington Bridge – on foot, let’s face it – faster than I was on a racing skiff.
Pressing firmly on both oars, I raised them like wings and went to the floating wooden dock of the tavern.Claremont had already crossed the twenty feet of lawn that separated us by the time I got out. The platform and the boat swayed under his weight.
– What the hell? – I walked across the boards to the vampire. – Why are you and your friends following me? – I was out of breath after rowing, my cheeks were burning.
“They’re not my friends, Dr. Bishop,” he frowned.
– Really? I have not seen so many vampires, sorcerers and demons in one place since my aunts at thirteen years old dragged me to the summer pagan festival.If they are not your friends, why are they following you? I wiped my forehead with my hand, brushing my wet hair back.
“My God,” the vampire muttered. – So the rumors don’t lie.
– What are the rumors?
– Do you think these … creatures have something in common with me? – In Claremont’s voice, in addition to disgust, there was also surprise. – Incredible.
I pulled a pullover over my head. Clairmont’s gaze slid down my hands from collarbone to toes, and I felt naked in my regular sportswear.
– Yes, I suppose. I studied at Oxford and come here every year. The only unusual factor in this visit of mine is you. As soon as you showed up here last night, I lost the opportunity to work quietly. Vampires and demons stare at me, unfamiliar sorcerers threaten me.
Claremont, judging by the involuntary gesture, wanted to take me by the shoulders and shake me. I am also quite tall, almost five feet seven, but I had to throw my head back when talking to him.Realizing how much bigger and stronger he is than me, I stepped back, crossed my arms and ordered myself, the scientist, to put my nerves in order.
Lyon continues to play sadly | TryndyChi
Lyon lost to Angers in the last match and, moreover, became participants in one very interesting story. After the match with Angers, Bosch made a wild blast to his players, and Marcelo smiled and voila, he was sent to the double for this. The nondescript result, plus this situation, does not really please the team. But Claremont beat Troyes in the first match and was in a very good mood.
At the very beginning of the meeting, Lyon started outright to control the ball well and there was a great moment in order to open an account, but Ussem struck his head from a deadly position by. That ball control pays off when Dembele kicks, but Claremont’s goalkeeper parries the shot and then Dembele converts the opportunity from the penalty spot. At what Dembele himself was shot down in the penalty area. 1-0
And after a penalty kicked Lyon continued to attack, only here the guests’ defenders were still able to cope with the attacks of the hosts, who are leading in the score. And now Lyon attacks and attacks and even scores …. into his own goal, Sinali Diomande does it. 1-1
Until the middle of the half, Lyon looked pretty good, considering the odd goal conceded. But then Claremont seized the initiative, but the dangerous attacks did not bring much development, Lyon sat and looked at it all, and decided to run away to a counterattack, the match went as a counterattack to a counterattack, but the teams did not show something dangerous. defenders blocked shots, goalkeepers took the ball into their hands.Yes, there were no dangerous moments, but there was a very good pace of the game.
In the middle of the half, he first hung Palmieri with a ricochet, then Lucas beat, but the goalkeeper played masterfully, but Dembele was the first to bounce and score, leading the team forward again 2-1
Claremont tried to make some kind of heap on the Lyon gate , but nothing dangerous happened, Lyon responded with an inaccurate blow to Tok, and Claremont responded with that too, Ussem did it. Lyon sometimes allowed Claremont to attack, but mostly they attacked themselves.And such an attack ended with a realized moment, Lucas completed and increased the advantage of his team.
The second half began with mutual attacks, at the moment with Lyon’s kick the ball was not sent accurately, but at the moment with the shots of the player from Cremonte, the goalkeeper made a save. It was very surprising, in the second half Claremont came out loaded, but they had to at least close the gap in the score, but the guests were unlucky in completing the attacks. After the middle of the half, Lyon woke up, added, and it was already clear that Lyon would most likely keep the attack, but at the end of the match the guests exploded and now Elbasan threw the goalkeeper and wins back the gap in the score 3-2
Principle and those and others equally attacked, maybe Claremont was a little sharper and of course they were rewarded for this effort and Elbasan head compares the score 3-3
Both had moments, a certain segment was pressed by one, another segment, others attacked , the counting is not quite natural may be for some and completely natural for others.Everybody tried, as a result of a draw.
China: Deepening the Geopolitical Pit by Minxin Pei
CLERMONT, CALIFORNIA – The UK’s decision to ban Huawei equipment from its 5G networks has dealt a painful blow to China. Until recently, China still relied on the UK to stick to its previous decision to allow the Chinese telecom giant to supply non-core equipment for the country’s 5G networks.
Green Growth at the End of the Flat World

But two recent events have made such a decision impossible.The first was the escalation of the US war with Huawei. In May, the US imposed a new sanction barring suppliers using US technology from supplying semiconductors to Huawei. Since American technologies are used in the production of modern semiconductors, which are necessary for Huawei products, including for 5G base stations, the company’s materials will not be supplied, which will make it almost impossible for it to manufacture 5G equipment in the future.
The prospect that a key UK supplier of 5G networks will not be able to build and maintain their system is a far greater threat than the potential for surveillance from China.No responsible government can afford to take such a risk. Huawei’s days were numbered as soon as the US government pulled the trigger in May. All that remained was to wait for Prime Minister Boris Johnson to deliver the bad news to President Xi Jinping.
The second development that politically made it easier for Johnson to ban Huawei products is China’s new national security law in Hong Kong. Draconian legislation, proposed in late May and approved by China’s nominal parliament on June 30, effectively ended the autonomous status of the former British colony.From the UK’s perspective, China’s actions are in flagrant violation of the 1984 Sino-British Joint Declaration on Hong Kong, which includes China’s commitment to respect and protect the city’s legal system and civil liberties for 50 years after its return to Chinese jurisdiction in 1997.
Chinese leaders may have thought Britain was too weak to resist. They were clearly wrong. The UK has decided to be committed to Hong Kong, and Huawei is an easy and obvious target in that regard.
China may be tempted to retaliate and seems to have a lot of leverage. He could squeeze British firms doing business in China. For example, British banking giant HSBC is particularly vulnerable to intimidation because its operations in Hong Kong account for more than half of its profits and a third of its income. China could also cut back on financial transactions through London and reduce the number of its students sent to British colleges and universities.

But such retaliatory measures, as tempting as they may seem, will eventually boomerang back. The expulsion of HSBC from Hong Kong will undoubtedly destroy this city as a global financial center, because China cannot find another global bank to take on this vital role. With growing tensions between the US and the Middle Kingdom, it’s hard to imagine China choosing Citi or JPMorgan Chase as HSBC’s successor.
Likewise, restrictions on education in the UK, where about 120,000 Chinese are currently studying, will hurt China itself more. The point is that there are not so many good alternatives for sending students. The US is considering limiting the number of Chinese students for reasons of national security. China has already threatened Australia that it will reduce the number of its tourists and students in this country. The possibilities of Canadian universities, which now have about 140,000 Chinese citizens, are not limitless.With China and Canada embroiled in a diplomatic standoff over the extradition of Huawei’s chief financial officer, Meng Wanzhou, to the US, it is unlikely that China will increase the number of young hedgehogs sent there to train.
This is simply an illustration of the daunting reality that Xi Jinping now faces: China quickly loses friends when it needs them most. In the past few months alone, its relations with India have been dealt a devastating blow following a bloody border clash that killed at least 20 Indian soldiers (and an unspecified number of Chinese).To punish Australia for daring to demand an international investigation into the origins of the COVID-19 coronavirus, China imposed duties on Australian barley and threatened other punitive measures. On July 14, the Chinese Foreign Ministry condemned in extremely harsh terms the recently published “White Paper” of the Japanese Ministry of Defense, which casts doubt on the possibility of rapprochement with the Prime Minister of the country Shinzo Abe, which Xi Jinping is counting on.
Chinese leaders have no one to blame but themselves for increasing international isolation.With an exaggerated sense of their own power, they too often entered from bad maps, thereby sending friendly or neutral countries such as the UK, Canada, India and Australia straight into the arms of the United States, which is now China’s main geopolitical adversary.
Therefore, Chinese leaders pondering how to respond to the UK ban on Huawei should consider the “first rule of the hole”: If you find yourself in a hole, stop digging.
90,000 1809 – Fulton patented the first steamboat – EADaily, 11 February 2017 – Society.News, USA News
On February 11, 1809, American Robert Fulton patented the design of his steam-powered vessel, as a result of which he went down in history as the official inventor of the steamer.
The revolution in shipbuilding associated with the use of steam energy began to be prepared long before reliable steam engines appeared. It is believed that the first idea was put forward by the French physicist Denis Papin, who experimented with a steam engine model in the 17th century, about 90 years before the appearance of the steam engine designed by James Watt.
In 1707, Papen designed a ship with a steam engine and paddle wheels, about which there is almost no reliable information. According to one of the versions, after a successful test, it was broken by boatmen, who were afraid of being out of work.
Thirty years later, Papen’s experiments were continued by the Englishman Jonathan Halls. His first experiment ended in failure: the engine was so heavy that the steam tug simply sank.
Inventors managed to achieve real success only at the beginning of the 19th century.In 1802, the Scotsman William Symington demonstrated the steamer Charlotte Dundas, and five years later the American Robert Fulton built the first steamer, which began to operate regular commercial voyages.
The first steamboat, which made its maiden voyage on August 17, 1807, is often called “Claremont”. In fact, Fulton called it the “North River Steamboat” and “Claremont” was the name of his partner Livingston’s manor, on the Hudson River, 177 kilometers from New York, which the steamer visited on its maiden voyage.The steamer then continued on to Albany.
Newspapers wrote that many boatmen closed their eyes in horror when the “Fulton monster”, spewing fire and smoke, moved up the Hudson against the wind and current.
Fulton patented his steamer on February 11, 1809 and built several more steam vessels in the following years. In 1814, Fulton laid the foundation stone for the 44-gun warship Fulton I, also known as the Demologos, but did not live to see completion.
In 1813, Fulton almost became the owner of the exclusive right to build steamships in Russia: Emperor Alexander I granted him a monopoly right to operate steamship ships on the St. Petersburg-Kronstadt line, as well as on other Russian rivers for 15 years.But Fulton could not take advantage of the contract, since he did not fulfill the main terms of the contract – for three years he did not commission a single vessel and this contract went to the Scottish industrialist Charles Byrd.
As a result, the first Russian steamship “Elizaveta” was built in 1815 by Byrd, who owned a mechanical foundry in St. Petersburg. After successful tests on the Neva, the Elizaveta began to run between St. Petersburg and Kronstadt. A report on one of these flights was published by the magazine “Son of the Fatherland”.In this article, a Russian naval officer, later Admiral Peter Rikord, first used the term “steamer” in print.
