Thanks for Publishing my Photos, in Richard Rothstein lays out the reality of government-mandated segregation in “Color of Law” – Greater Greater Washington

Thank you for using my photographs to illustrate this piece on the impact of policies that promote segregation in our communities. I presume these photos from my collection have been chosen because they illustrate micro-segregation.

his particular place in Washington, DC accomodates multiple different communities, together, and separate – with a dog park, a play field, and a skateboard park, right next to each other. It is fascinating to watch and learn about. I posted previously about this here: Thoughts and photos from the gilded ghetto | Race, Class, and Politics in the Cappuccino City, by Derek Hyra

I followed up by listening to a webinar hosted by @AmericaWalks featuring Rothstein…

Just Read: The State of US Health, 1990-2016 - Noticing: Significant Fasting Plasma Glucose Increase, Impact of Current Dietary Recommendations, Non-mention of (non-acoholic) Liver Disease + (Mis)Understanding Washington, DC

This paper is lengthy and well covered throughout the social media sphere, so I won’t repeat what’s already been said.

1. Significant Increases in Fasting Blood Glucose and Current Dietary Recommendations
2. Diabetes is increased, Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease is unaccounted for

In the body of the paper, phenomena of increases in fasting blood glucose is not connected to current dietary recommendations, which promote carbohydrate intake and may be partially responsible for this increase. See this paper for more (More from my trip to the Library of Congress and incredible US News and World Report photo collection: 1968’s Harried Housewife Preparing Convenience Foods (and how her diet was re-engineered to be carbohydrate-rich))

As I’ve written here previously, the condition of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) has seemed to come out of nowhere, is still creating confusion within the medical profession, and is continuing to grow in prevalence. It’s a follow-up to a previous post here, see: Just Read: Global epidemiology of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease-Meta-analytic assessment of …
