Connect The Dots

September 8, 2014

On January 29, 1932, stuntman J.D. Pate attempted to inaugurate KRKD’s new transmitter atop Downtown’s Spring Arcade building in a most impressive fashion, swinging out onto the antenna wire stretched between the 200-foot-tall towers.

As the Goodyear blimp Volunteer hovered overhead, Pate gingerly felt his way onto the cable, stretched 390 feet above the ground.

Nearly 80 years later, the twin towers still stand in the Historic Core, though few Downtown residents are likely to be familiar with the call letters they carry.

KRKD came to life in 1932 as the former KMIC (operating on “1150 kilocycles”) relocated its transmitter and studios from Inglewood to Downtown L.A.

1934 Polio SC

Poliomyelitis is caused by infection with a member of the genus Enterovirus known as poliovirus (PV). This group of RNA viruses colonize the gastrointestinal tract[1] Source

What is Enterovirus 68, the mysterious illness that may be sickening hundreds of children?

The culprit is believed to be Enterovirus 68 (also known as EVD-68 or Eentrovirus D68), a fairly rare viral infection that can cause symptoms such as coughing, wheezing and low blood oxygen levels (also known as hypoxemia). In some cases, however, the symptoms can be severe — particularly for children who already suffer from asthma or other respiratory problems.

    ………………….As usual Great Work You DO~

    • Thanks for following. I am concluding that much of our ill health started as an engineering problem which manifested itself to a biological problem….

      AND NOW WE ALL HAVE A BIG PROBLEM

  2. Yeah. Turn off the 3G/4G and wireless microwave towers and I predict Ebola goes away like it did before the 1970’s. There will be a lot less strands of RNA lying around from the animals to infect everybody. We have put ourselves in a catch 22…
