  1. Ahava and Weleda products work well for me. I use their face, body and foot creams. https://www.ahava.com/about-us “You will never find parabens in AHAVA formulas. All products are vegan, just like AHAVA products have always been. AHAVA products endure strict allergy testing and are approved for sensitive skin. Our natural ingredients are sourced from nature, never from GMOs. AHAVA formulates products without the questionable compounds sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS), Phthalates and Triclosan.” https://www.weleda.com/ingredients/weleda-free-of-list “At Weled
  2. My school district doesn’t accept any. They don’t even accept SAT or ACT. However Stanford 10 was easy to get done and we received the results within a few hours of completing the entire battery of tests.
  3. https://www.nih.gov/about-nih/who-we-are/nih-director/statements/nih-makes-first-infrastructure-awards-support-research-post-covid-conditions https://recovercovid.org “June 10, 2021 NIH makes first infrastructure awards to support research on post COVID conditions This past February I announced the launch of a new research initiative to understand why some individuals who have had symptomatic COVID-19 don’t fully recover (often referred to as Long COVID) or develop new or returning symptoms after recovery. These conditions have been referred to by the research community as pos
  4. I think it takes getting used to. I prefer tatami mats for sleeping on the floor. Cheaper option for us are trifold mattress. However those would be bulky for camping or backpacking.
  5. If you mean the 3 quart instant pot, I have made chili, jambalaya, chicken rice, pulled pork and all kinds of stews. However the amount is only enough to feed my husband and kids unless I cook stew loaded with ingredients, or pair pulled pork with bread.
  6. FYI from CollegeBoard “If your child took an AP® Exam during Administration 1 or Administration 2 in May this year, they'll get access to their AP scores starting on Wednesday, July 21.If they tested during Administration 3 or will be testing in Administration 4 in June, most scores will be available by August 16. We'll email them when their scores are available.”

The study found that some symptoms were more prevalent in certain age groups or demographics. Older patients had a higher chance of developing high cholesterol, while younger patients were more likely to develop gastrointestinal issues after diagnosis. The journal analy
  8. The U of Norte Dame study said some PFAS were not listed in the labels. As to what to look out for, https://www.atsdr.cdc.gov/pfas/docs/pfas_fact_sheet.pdf “List of Common PFAS and Their Abbreviations: Abbreviation Chemical name PFOS Perfluorooctane sulfonic acid PFOA (or C8) Perfluorooctanoic acid PFNA Perfluorononanoic acid PFDA Perfluorodecanoic acid PFOSA (or FOSA) Perfluorooctane sulfonaminde MeFOSAA (aka Me-PFOSA-AcOH) 2-(N-Methyl-perfluorooctane sulfonamido) acetic acid Et-FOSAA (aka Et-PFOSA-AcOH) 2-(N-Ethyl-perfluorooctane sulfonamido) acetic acid PFH
  9. https://www.npr.org/2021/06/15/1006861794/cdc-has-declared-coronavirus-delta-variant-a-variant-of-concern “The coronavirus variant that was first detected in India has become a, quote, "variant of concern" in the United States. That's according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The announcement comes as the dangerous new variant, the Delta, has been spreading more widely in this country. NPR health correspondent Rob Stein is with us to talk about this. … SHAPIRO: Tell us more about what that data is. What does it show? STEIN: Yeah, so it really looks like it's ta
  10. https://news.nd.edu/news/use-of-pfas-in-cosmetics-widespread-new-study-finds/ “ Many cosmetics sold in the United States and Canada likely contain high levels of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), a potentially toxic class of chemicals linked to a number of serious health conditions, according to new research from the University of Notre Dame. Scientists tested more than 200 cosmetics including concealers, foundations, eye and eyebrow products and various lip products. According to the study, 56 percent of foundations and eye products, 48 percent of lip products and 47 per
  11. I read this on my county’s dashboard webpage. There is a lag of a month or more. ”Last updated on June 10, 2021. This dashboard is updated every Thursday, but please note that there is a lag in the data of up to a month or more due to the time required for laboratories to sequence and report variant cases to the Public Health Department.”
  12. I won’t DIY. You could probably use this, especially if you also like baking lebkuchen https://www.amazon.com/Edora-Pottasche-Potash/dp/B00NU7S0R0 You could also try using nutritional yeast as a substitute https://www.seriouseats.com/homemade-hand-pulled-noodles-lamian “For optimal extensibility, I found nutritional yeast to be effective between 5 and 8 percent of the total flour weight in my tests. As the protein content of flour increased (up to King Arthur bread flour), I could dial up the amount of nutritional yeast to the top end of that range without compromising st
  13. I don’t because I am not aiming for restaurant consistency. However, pottasche (penghui 蓬灰, K2CO3) is what is more often used for chinese hand pulled noodles if desired. ETA: I don’t trust the quality control for lye water (NaOH) and I don’t wish to make my own.
  14. It’s not so much doom and gloom. My husband and I have many elderly relatives in our country of origin with high numbers of Delta variant. To us, it just means the much younger relatives would drop off groceries for the elders and the elders should shelter in place until the Delta variant there isn’t spreading among the community. My region also probably has a higher number of Delta variants that the rest of the country. https://www.sfchronicle.com/local/article/The-delta-coronavirus-variant-has-California-16240411.php “How many delta variant cases are in the Bay Area?
