M Is FOR MASHUP - November 2nd, 2016

Intense Psychedelia : The Series That Ended Continues!

By DJ Useo










Yes, I admit it. I told you all in series 10 that I was ending the Intense Psychedelia series. However, in the interim between then, & now, I was constantly beseiged with requests for more. Loving the concept as I do, I needed no more urging to pursue it further.



















I've been mixing these tracks over a long period, & many have been pre-released in anticipation of this album. The response bears out the viability of this new collection. With 12 hours of Intense mashups already available, this raises the total to a full nights' experience. Please to be enjoying!



















I sure liked mixing with all these tunes I already loved. There's tracks with Madonna, David Bowie, The Doobie Brothers, The Doors & more singing over music from people like Cheap Trick, Jimi Hendrix, The Jesus & Mary Chain, Love & Rockets, & many more. I really feel that I've struck a fine balance between likeability & creativity.



















Obtain the completely gratis file of INTENSE PSYCHEDELIA 11from any of 3 mirror links found here
( groovytimewithdjuseo.blogspot.com/2016/10/dj-useo-intense-psychedelia-11-mashups.html )



















I realize that none of you would share the link even if you were on fire, & it would earn you a bucket of water ( lol ) but I'd appreciate you sharing the link if you like the tracks.



















This album has been done for 2 months now, & I'm anxious for any comments, or reactions at all.





















More mashups next week.

Trivia Question from Yesterday


What was the world's first commercial jetliner?


       de Havilland DH 106 Comet                                                      Source


The de Havilland DH 106 Comet was the world's first commercial jetliner. Developed and manufactured by de Havilland at its Hatfield Aerodrome, Hertfordshire, United Kingdom headquarters, the Comet 1 prototype first flew on 27 July 1949. It featured an aerodynamically clean design with four de Havilland Ghost turbojet engines buried in the wings, a pressurised fuselage, and large square windows. For the era, it offered a relatively quiet, comfortable passenger cabin and showed signs of being a commercial success at its 1952 debut.

A year after entering commercial service, the Comets began suffering problems, with three of them breaking up during mid-flight in well-publicised accidents. These were later found to be due to catastrophic metal fatigue in the airframes, not well understood at the time.        Source







Alan J was first and correct with:
   The de Havilland Comet.



Jim from CA, retired to ID, wrote:

Deborah replied:
   The first commercial jetliner was the de Haviland Comet. I only know because I looked it up.
  Rained last night and cleared out in time for a lovely, chilly sunrise. Welcome, November.




Adam answered:
   de Havilland DH106 Comet



Dave in Tucson said:
   The world's first commercial airliner was the De Havilland Comet, a beautiful aircraft:



  One of which eventually broke-apart in mid-air:



  The cause was later determined to be the sharp cornered rectangular windows on both sides of the passenger cabin. After several flights the cabin pressurization and depressurization over- stressed the fuselage which broke in mid-flight. It was later determined the sharp cornered rectangular windows were the cause, the solution was what you see today - upright rectangular windows with curved corners.




DJ Useo responded:
   I know my own name, but not the answer to that question. Nicely played.

Once Republican, Are Turning Democrat

Asian-American Voters

At a shopping plaza in the Washington suburbs, the flag of the long-defunct South Vietnam flies beside the Stars and Stripes. Former refugees who congregate there hold fast to their roots, but their political allegiances are changing.

Though they are regarded as the most conservative of Asian-American voters, the Vietnamese are increasingly shifting their support to Democrats. That reflects a broader shift among Asian-Americans from being majority Republican supporters to overwhelmingly Democrat. Donald Trump's polarizing rhetoric on issues like immigration could accelerate the trend.

That shift could have an effect on the presidential race. Though Asian-Americans represent only about 4 percent of the electorate and tend to have low turnout, they are a potentially significant bloc in battleground states like Nevada, Pennsylvania and Virginia.

Asian-Americans comprise an array of ethnic nationalities: Chinese, Indians, Filipinos, Koreans, Japanese and others. Most of the Vietnamese arrived after the communist takeover of their homeland in 1975 and have settled mainly in California and Texas. But there's a significant number in Fairfax County - a district in northern Virginia where nearly one-fifth of the population is of Asian origin.

At the Eden Center, a plaza of Vietnamese shops and restaurants, seniors who once supported the Republican Party for being strong on national security and fighting communism are increasingly leaning Democrat - as their more progressive children who were born in America tend to do.

Alternative To Hawaii

Canary Islands

The team behind a project to build one of the world's largest telescopes said on Monday it has chosen Spain's Canary Islands in the Atlantic Ocean as a possible alternative to Hawaii.

The decision follows opposition from Native Hawaiians and environmentalists to plans for constructing the so-called Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT), which would cost $1.4 billion, at the Mauna Kea volcano on Hawaii's Big Island.

Henry Yang, chair of the TMT International Observatory Board, said in a statement the board explored a number of alternative sites for the telescope.

Ultimately, the board selected La Palma, the most westerly of the Canary Islands off the coast of Morocco, as the primary alternative to Hawaii, Yang said.

The designation of the Canary Islands as an alternative comes nearly a year after the Hawaii Supreme Court blocked construction of the telescope on the Big Island.

Far-Flung Corners Of The World

Migrants

An increasing number of people from far-flung corners of the world have tried to sneak into the United States among the hundreds of thousands of other, mostly Latin American migrants caught at the Mexican border in the last year, according to arrest data from the Homeland Security Department.

The arrests of more than 8,000 people from India, China, Romania, Bangladesh and Nepal between October 2015 and the end of August is offering a new challenge to immigration agents tasked with fully identifying would-be immigrants and quickly deporting people caught crossing the border illegally.

The group of overseas migrants represents a tiny fraction of the more than 408,000 people caught crossing the Mexican border illegally in the last year. But the arrests suggest a rising trend in the number of migrants opting for a convoluted trek that sometimes wends across the seas to South America, over land to Central America and then through Mexico before arriving at the U.S. border illegally.

For decades Mexico dominated the discussion on illegal immigration as the country from which most immigrants went to the border illegally. But in recent years the number of Mexican nationals who have been trying to sneak into the United States has dropped.

India and China are now squarely among the top 10 countries of origin for people caught trying to sneak into the United States. Large numbers of immigrants from those two countries have long come to the United States legally and many have overstayed visas to remain here. Now some people are taking a different approach altogether by making their way to Mexico to try to sneak into the United States as visas are harder to come by.

Caused 1933 California Quake?

Drilling

New research suggests oil drilling decades ago may have triggered earthquakes in the Los Angeles region, including the 1933 quake that killed more than 100 people.

If confirmed, it would be the first time oil operations have been linked to a deadly quake in the United States.

Scientists from the U.S. Geological Survey combed through historical records and identified several quakes in the 1920s and 1930s that were potentially caused by industry activities, including the 1933 magnitude 6.4 jolt that struck the port city of Long Beach.

Until now, "we pretty much assumed that earthquakes in the LA area are natural and that induced earthquakes are either not happening or not significant," said USGS seismologist Sue Hough, who led the study.

In the study, Hough and colleague Morgan Page pieced together a list of quakes between 1915 and the early 1930s, and reviewed oil permits and drilling operations during that time period. They found 13 cases of shaking that may have been caused by oil production ramping up.

Releases Closed Case Files

FBI

The FBI has unexpectedly released documents concerning ex-president Bill Clinton's pardon of the husband of a wealthy Democratic donor, in a surprise move just days before the election in which his wife is seeking to become America's first female president.

The release of the heavily redacted 129-page report over the pardon of trader Marc Rich -- an investigation that closed in 2005 without charges -- triggered questions from Democrats already angered by the FBI's probe into hundreds of thousands of newly uncovered emails possibly linked to Hillary Clinton.

While the Rich documents were published online Monday, they received little notice until they were posted on Tuesday on a Twitter account for the Federal Bureau of Investigation's division managing Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests that had had no posts since a year ago, except for a small handful released simultaneously on Sunday.

"Absent a FOIA litigation deadline, this is odd," said Hillary Clinton spokesman Brian Fallon.

"Will FBI be posting docs on Trump's housing discrimination in '70s?" he added, referring to Clinton's Republican rival Donald Trump, a billionaire real estate magnate.

Vatican's Beijing Olive Branch

China

Secret talks between the Vatican and Beijing are raising hopes of a "historic" rapprochement after six decades of estrangement, but some Chinese clergy fear that Rome will accept a Communist stranglehold over the country's Catholics.

Since becoming head of the Holy See in 2013 Pope Francis has tried to improve relations with the Chinese government in the hope of reconnecting with Catholics in China who are divided between two denominations, loyal to either Rome or Beijing.

But opponents -- among them the respected Hong Kong Cardinal Joseph Zen -- say the agreement risks abandoning loyal believers and amounts to a deal with the devil.

Since January, Chinese and Vatican officials have met at least four times, including in Rome, to try and resolve the delicate issue of the appointment of bishops -- the heart of the dispute.

China and the Vatican have not had diplomatic relations since 1951. The country's roughly 12 million Catholics are divided between the government-run Chinese Patriotic Catholic Association (CPCA), whose clergy are chosen by the Communist Party -- but sometimes accepted by Rome -- and an unofficial church where bishops named by the Vatican are not recognised by Beijing, but sometimes tolerated.

Antibiotic-Resistant Bacteria Can Hitch A Ride

Hospital Scrubs

Dangerous bacteria, including methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), can spread from sick patients in a hospital to the scrubs of health care workers, a new study finds.

These pathogens can also find their way from the patient to items in their hospital room, such as the bed rail, according to the study, presented here at IDWeek 2016, a meeting of several organizations focused on infectious diseases.

Hospital-acquired infections are a growing cause of concern - they affect 1 in 25 hospitalized patients in the U.S. on any given day, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

To track the spread of these bacteria, the researchers looked at 167 hospitalized patients in their study. These patients received care from 40 nurses over the course of three separate 12-hour shifts in the intensive care unit. The nurses used a new set of scrubs for each shift, according to the study.

The researchers found 22 instances of bacterial transmission: six of the instances of transmission were from patient to nurse, six were from room to nurse and 10 percent were from patient to room.

Fire In Operating Room

Tokyo

A woman passed gas during a surgical procedure, sparking a fire in the operating room and even caused her to be seriously burned, according to the Miami Herald.

The fire happened in April at Tokyo Medical University. Reports say the patient, who was in her 30s, was undergoing an operation which involved applying a laser to her cervix.

According to reports, the laser is believed to have been ignited by the gas she passed. The fire burned much of her body, including her waist and legs. Her condition is unclear.

A spokesperson for the hospital said, "When the patient's intestinal gas leaked into the space of the operation (room), it ignited with the irradiation of the laser, and the burning spread, eventually reaching the surgical drape and causing the fire."
