2023.06.01 02:51 Excellent_Set5113 [Spoilers All] The Harbinger Hypothesis: Unveiling Thedas’ Sinister Enigma

Today, I present to you an hypothesis that aims to shed light on the potential mysterious entity I dubbed the Harbinger within the world of Thedas. The Harbinger hypothesis suggests that there exists a malevolent force, intricately connected to the Blight, ancient artifacts, the Old Gods, the Fade, red lyrium, and political divisions, working towards its own dark agenda.
The central premise of this hypothesis is that the Harbinger has devised a carefully orchestrated plan, spanning centuries, to manipulate Thedas and bring about its own nefarious goals.
We will organise this as if the Harbinger were the culprite behind its many potential masks.
By analyzing the lore and historical events, we can uncover a series of interconnected steps that align with the Harbinger’s actions and its overarching plan.
  1. Infiltration and Corruption:
The Harbinger’s plan commences with the subtle infiltration of key positions and the corruption of influential individuals across Thedas. Drawing parallels to the infamous Corypheus, an awakened Magister from the Tevinter Imperium, we witness how manipulation can destabilize nations and sow discord.
• References: • Dragon Age: Inquisition, “Legacy” DLC - Specifically, the investigation of Corypheus and his actions, as well as the uncovering of his plans and infiltration. 
  1. Manipulation of Ancient Artifacts:
Central to the Harbinger hypothesis is its manipulation of ancient artifacts associated with elven civilization. The Eluvian mirrors, discovered throughout the Dragon Age games, are believed to harbor immense power and knowledge. Solas, the enigmatic Dread Wolf, seeks to harness these artifacts, indicating the potential influence of the Harbinger.
• References: • Dragon Age: Inquisition - Particularly, the quests involving the Eluvian mirrors and Solas’ interactions with them. 
  1. Cultivating Discontent and Discord:
The Harbinger exhibits a remarkable ability to exploit social, racial, and religious divisions within Thedas. The turmoil within Kirkwall, epitomized by Knight-Commander Meredith’s descent into madness fueled by red lyrium, exemplifies the Harbinger’s capacity to fuel discontent.
• References: • Dragon Age II - Specifically, the events surrounding Knight-Commander Meredith and the corruption of red lyrium. 
  1. Seeding Dissension among Nations:
Political rivalries and territorial disputes are ruthlessly exploited by the Harbinger to serve its machinations. Notable events such as the Orlesian civil war illustrate how the Harbinger capitalizes on existing divisions, undermining coordinated efforts to combat the Blight and fracturing the unity of nations.
• References: • Dragon Age: Inquisition - Particularly, the quests and events related to the Orlesian civil war and the manipulation of political divisions. 
  1. Targeting the Grey Wardens:
Recognizing the Grey Wardens as a significant obstacle, the Harbinger orchestrates targeted attacks on the order. The actions of Loghain in Dragon Age: Origins and subsequent events demonstrate the Harbinger’s determination to cripple the Wardens and hinder their ability to combat the Blight.
• References: • Dragon Age: Origins - Specifically, the events involving Loghain and his betrayal of the Grey Wardens. 
  1. Unleashing Cataclysmic Blights:
The emergence of Archdemons, the corruption of the Old Gods, and the ensuing Blights throughout Thedas hint at the Harbinger’s orchestration. The simultaneous Blights witnessed in Dragon Age: Origins suggest a coordinated effort to spread chaos, overwhelm the forces of good, and further the Harbinger’s influence.
• References: • Dragon Age: Origins - Particularly, the encounters with the Archdemon and the Blight, as well as the overall storyline of the game. 
  1. Ascension and Transformation:
As chaos engulfs Thedas, it is speculated that the Harbinger seeks to harness the power of the Blight to ascend to an even greater state of malevolence. While no direct in-game reference confirms this outcome, the recurring themes of manipulation, corruption, and chaos lend credence to the notion of a transformative ascension.
  1. Ancient Tevinter Texts:
“The Forbidden Ones” (Codex Entry, Dragon Age: Origins, Circle Tower) reveals the existence of ancient mages who sought forbidden knowledge and power, potentially alluding to the Harbinger’s manipulation of dark forces.
“Vir Dirthara: The Way of Three Trees” (Codex Entry, Dragon Age: Inquisition, Exalted Plains) provides insights into ancient elven lore, offering potential clues about the Harbinger’s involvement with elven artifacts and its connection to the Blight.
  1. The Chant of Light:
Verse 5:1 of the Canticle of Silence (Codex Entry, Dragon Age: Inquisition, Haven) speaks of “the shadow that comes, spreading its dark influence,” hinting at the Harbinger’s clandestine orchestration of events.
Verse 9:7 of the Canticle of Trials (Codex Entry, Dragon Age: Origins, Redcliffe Castle) alludes to “a serpent with a thousand eyes,” symbolizing the Harbinger’s ability to manipulate and exploit political divisions.
  1. Dalish Elf Lore:
“The Tale of Fen’Harel” (Codex Entry, Dragon Age: Inquisition, Various Locations) unveils the story of the Dread Wolf, Solas, and his involvement in ancient elven history. Exploring this tale may reveal connections between the Harbinger and Solas’s plans, including the manipulation of the Fade and the Veil.
“Elgar’nan: God of Vengeance” (Codex Entry, Dragon Age: Inquisition, Exalted Plains) provides insights into Elgar’nan, an elven god associated with vengeance. This entry might contain veiled references to the Harbinger’s role in ancient elven conflicts.
  1. Solas’s Revelations:
Conversations with Solas (Character Dialogue, Dragon Age: Inquisition) unveil profound insights into the nature of the Veil, ancient artifacts, and his intentions to tear down the Veil. These revelations indirectly connect to the Harbinger’s plans and its involvement in manipulating ancient forces.
  1. Codex Entries and Letters:
“The Architect’s Journal” (Codex Entry, Dragon Age: Origins, Awakening) offers glimpses into the mind of the Architect, a sentient darkspawn. This entry provides clues about the Harbinger’s influence over the darkspawn and its manipulation of the Blight.
“Research Notes: Red Lyrium” (Codex Entry, Dragon Age: Inquisition, The Descent

Why should fowl feed processing machine lubed?
Chicken feed handling device manufacturers all understand that throughout the operation of the feed equipment, there will certainly be corresponding rubbing in between the parts in contact with each other, from damage to the components to affecting the production of mechanical devices, therefore causing the mechanical tools to fall short and causing substantial financial losses to the venture. For that reason, routine lubrication is generally called for to ensure the typical procedure of the pet feed pellet making device.
When lubricating feed equipment, chicken feed handling machine manufacturers typically include a number of various lubrication states, which can be separated into boundary rubbing, dry rubbing and fluid friction. Generally talking, lubricating the friction parts of equipment can properly minimize friction, significantly lower devices wear and also performance consumption, boost devices operating effectiveness, and extend devices life. As one of the primary methods to enhance equipment efficiency, lubrication modern technology has actually become a typical concern in relevant areas.
Fowl feed processing maker suppliers need to listen that in the process of lubrication, they must not be thoughtlessly performed, yet ought to formulate a lubrication administration strategy in line with the advancement of the business according to the real manufacturing situation of the chicken feed equipment itself, so regarding make higher initiatives for the typical operation of the business tools. contribution.Why should the fowl feed pellet making equipment be kept lubricated?
Related post: poultry feed plant
Generally, the significance of lubricating treatment has been highlighted repeatedly, mostly since appropriate lubricating care can considerably lower the wear degree of feed pellet mills and also make sure smooth production job. As most of us know, any poultry feed handling maker will undoubtedly have problems such as lowered adaptability, lowered operating performance and also damage after lasting use. Currently, the upkeep of equipment certainly squanders labor and also material resource expenses, and also causes business to experience greater economic losses.
Fowl feed processing devices are no exception. In the long-term usage process, if there is a absence of corresponding lubrication, the rubbing stamina in between the contact components will inevitably raise, causing damage to the components and also affecting the regular use of the entire fowl feed handling machine. Therefore, having a good lubrication program in place prior to a problem happens in the devices will be a preventive measure to extend the life of the tools.
The Followings Are More Frequently Asked Questions concerning Poultry Feed Pellet Machines :.
With the opening of 2022, the sales of Richi Machinery's chicken feed processing makers have actually been climbing continuously. Nonetheless, for the small issues brought on by the incorrect operation of clients, a brief recap is as adheres to:.
1. What should I do if the fowl feed handling maker can not be pressed?
Experiencing this trouble, numerous close friends will absolutely think that this situation will certainly likewise happen when their feed pellet devices are creating feed pellets. This is really a migraine, not just throwing away raw materials, but likewise substantially enhancing the trouble of screening feed pellets. Today, a technologist will discuss the reasons for this phenomenon with you.
Lately, lots of consumers reported that the fowl pellet maker created a great deal of powder, and the pellets were not tight enough, the feed pellets were constantly soft, so what happened?
Related post: poultry feed pellet making machine
In general, is this thought about a feed ingredient or formula? Reasonably sluggish manufacturing changes, or adjustments to dishes, can swiftly attain the wanted results. Excluding feed components as well as formulations, we will certainly evaluate the maker configuration for internal issues.
( 1) The mold wear is also large, the filter openings are squashed, and the expansion is serious, resulting in a decrease in pellet pressure, influencing the pellet developing rate, and also causing excessive powder.
( 2) The wetness material of the raw material is too low or too high. If the water content is expensive, the powder will not be way too much, however the pellet hardness is lower, and also the pellets of the poultry feed pelleting mechanism are simple to loosen. The raw product has a low tide content and also is hard to squeeze out, resulting in way too much powder.
( 3) The poultry feed pellet equipment is aging, the power wants, the electric motor can not give enough rate, and also the equivalent pressure is created to press into pellets.
( 4) The quality of the ring die is not good, or the compression is not too high.
( 5) Take into consideration making use of oil.
( 6) The feeding scraper is not mounted appropriately, and also the feeding can not enter journalism chamber.
( 7) The placement of the cutter is wrong, and also the discharge material is pressed right into powder (but if the hole is usually obstructed, it is unlikely).
( 8) Moisture control describes the detailed control of different aspects according to different circumstances in the entire production process, to ensure that the final water content of the product can get to the expected target of the manufacturer. The major factors affecting the last water material of feed items are: water web content of feed ingredients, water adjustments in the squashing phase, liquid enhancement in the blending phase, vapor water material, conditioning level, die hole size and also density, cooler air volume as well as air-drying time, packaging.
The influence of quality administration as well as various climatic as well as ecological variables ( normally, the wetness material of pellet feed after handling shall not go beyond 12.5; yet in the north, pellet feed will not exceed 13.5. If handling in summer, due to the high ambient temperature level, the optimal moisture material of finished pellets will not go beyond 13.5. 12.5, otherwise it is very easy to mold as well as deteriorate).
Feed pellets are welcomed by more and more farmers and ranchers with their distinct advantages. It is simple to store and transportation, and also it is also good for pet digestion. Compared with common feed, it is abundant in nutrients and has a good market prospect. Actually, the production process of feed pellets is a procedure of distribution ratio, as long as you understand the proportion. Certainly, when the pellets begin, of course inexperienced, but do it twice. The general fowl feed handling maker maker's handbook will certainly clarify the distribution ratio of feed pellets, which can be described.
2. No pellets.
( 1 ) Factor.
The brand-new fowl feed handling machine was not run-in with lubing oil or was not run-in enough;.
The moisture web content of feed resources is too high;.
( 2 ) Remedy.
Remove the raw materials in the current poultry feed processing maker, as well as add oil to the raw products to run in the new machine, and also the proportion of each time is: 1:3.
Include some completely dry ingredients to adjust the moisture.
3. The electric motor stops unexpectedly.
( 1 ) Factor.
The voltage is also reduced.
The pressure in between the pressing roller and the die plate is expensive.
( 2 ) Remedy.
Use 4mm wire to prevent stumbling throughout usage.
Loosen some screws.

2023.06.01 02:28 Individual-Teacher36 How the Cardiopulmonary Function variant in Pediatric Scoliosis patients from High-Altitude Region of the world

he International Scoliosis Research Society defines early onset scoliosis (EOS) as the various types of scoliosis that occur within 10 years of age (1). EOS leads to distortion of body appearance and reduced heart and lung function, which often limits the development of the chest and even oppresses the spinal cord, resulting in paralysis (2). A large-scale demographic study showed that an increase in altitude negatively correlated with newborn birth weight. Moreover, neonatal body weight shows obvious changes when the altitude exceeds 2500 m (3, 4). Based on relevant studies, we defined an area with an altitude above 3000 m as a high-altitude area and an area with an altitude below 500 m as a plain area (5). High-altitude environments consists of low air pressure, hypoxia, and cold weather, all of which impact the cardiopulmonary function and structure of the human body. Such high-altitude environments increase cardiac output, pulmonary ventilation, pulmonary capillary hyperplasia, and other compensatory reactions (6, 7). However, there are limited studies on the effects of high-altitude environments on cardiopulmonary function in patients with EOS. Therefore, this study aimed to determine the effects of high altitude on the respiratory and circulatory systems of patients with EOS by comparing blood gas analysis results and cardiopulmonary function between the high-altitude and plain area groups. In addition, we explored how scoliosis affected patients' cardiopulmonary function by analyzing the correlations between scoliosis imaging parameters and cardiopulmonary function measures. We aimed to provide an improved preoperative evaluation and postoperative rehabilitation for EOS patients living in high-altitude areas.
Inclusion and exclusion criteria A retrospective cohort study was conducted to identify patients with EOS between June 2013 and June 2021. The inclusion criteria were: (1) EOS patients with a long-term living altitude >3000 m or living area altitude <500 m; (2) full-length anteroposterior and lateral radiographs of the spine showing scoliosis of mainly the thoracic curvature type; (3) patients with an aggravated Cobb's angle >45°; (4) no treatment with braces or growth rods before evaluation; and (5) all patients knew of the study procedures and agreed to participate. The exclusion criteria were: (1) incomplete spinal radiography data; (2) patients who could not cooperate with the completion of pulmonary function examination, blood gas analysis, and cardiac color ultrasound; and (3) patients with congenital cardio-cerebrovascular diseases, syndrome scoliosis, and previous spinal surgery. Evaluation methods Patient records and relevant data were collected retrospectively. All patients underwent full-length anteroposterior and lateral spine radiographs, blood gas analysis, lung function examination, and heart color ultrasound examination. Imaging parameters Preoperatively, whole-body and lateral spinal X-rays were performed on all patients, and both shoulders were flexed anteriorly during X-ray examination to ensure the most natural state of lumbar lordosis. The imaging parameters were as follows: (1) kyphosis angle of the thoracic (kypho), (2) upper thoracic curve (UT), and (3) main thoracic curve (MT). MT measures the Cobb angle from the head side of the T3 upper endplate to the T12 lower endplate. The UT measures the Cobb angle from the T1 upper endplate to the T3 lower endplate on the cephalic side. Kypho measures the Cobb angle from the upper endplate of the cephalic T2 vertebral body to the lower endplate of the caudal T5 vertebral body. All measurements used the Cobb method. The picture archiving and communication system was used by two independent observers. To test agreement among the observers, two orthopedic spine surgeons measured the imaging parameters twice independently, and the intraclass correlation coefficient was analyzed. Doppler echocardiography Color Doppler echocardiography indices were collected and recorded, including those of the pulmonary artery internal diameter (PAID), left ventricular end-systolic dimension (LVISD), ascendant aorta inner diameter, right ventricular basal diameter (RVBD), left atrium left-right diameter (LALRD), right atrium left-right diameter, left atrium longitudinal diameter, left atrium vertical diameter, peak late diastolic flow velocity (A peak), left ventricular early diastolic peak flow velocity (E peak), interventricular septum extent (IVSE), left ventricular end-diastolic diameter (LVEDD), left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF), right atrium vertical diameter, and interventricular septum thickness. A color Doppler ultrasound instrument (Vivid E95, GE Healthcare) with an m5S probe was used. Patients were positioned in the left lateral decubitus position, and their electrocardiograms were recorded synchronously to obtain apical four-, 2 three-, and two-chamber heart section images for three consecutive cardiac cycles and acquire spectral Doppler images of the mitral and aortic valves. Routine parameter measurements were performed according to the American Society of Echocardiography guidelines, and the LVEF was determined using the biplane Simpson method. The patients’ imaging results were jointly rated by two experts in ultrasound imaging. Pulmonary function examination The indices of pulmonary function examination included forced vital capacity (FVC), forced expiratory flow in 1s (FEV1), percentage of predicted value, vital capacity (VC), and maximum ventilation (MVV). Preoperative pulmonary function examination was performed using the JAEGER Oxycon Pro with a unified baseline (CareFusion Germany 234 GmbH, Hochberg, Germany). A lung function detector (JAEGER Master Screen PFT, CareFusion Germany 234 GmbH, Hochberg, Germany) was used for measurement. A lung function detector was used for measurement, and the measurement module included pulse oscillation lung function, conventional lung capacity, velocity loop, residual gas function, dispersion function, and MVV rate. Lung function test results were obtained using JLab 5.7 software (CareFusion Germany 234 GmbH, Hochberg, Germany). Blood gas analysis Blood gas analysis indices included blood oxygen saturation (SO2%), hematocrit (Hct), partial pressure of oxygen (pO2), total hemoglobin (Hb), and partial pressure of carbon dioxide (pCO2). Two independent observers recorded these indices. To test for inter-rater agreement, the reported outcomes were recorded twice independently by two orthopedic surgeons, and the recorded data were reconciled. Statistical methods The data were analyzed using SPSS 23.0 software, and the data were expressed as`x±s, where`x and s stand for the mean and standard deviation, respectively. An independent sample t-test was used to compare the measurement data between the two groups, and the χ2 test was used for counting data. Differences were considered statistically significant at P<0.05. The correlation among the parameters was determined using Spearman’s correlation coefficient and analyzed using Origin 2021 software. General data Based on the inclusion and exclusion criteria, 38 and 66 EOS patients were enrolled in the high-altitude and plain area groups, respectively. The high-altitude group comprised 20 boys and 18 girls, with a mean age of 8.42 years (range, 6–10 years). The plain area group comprised 26 boys and 40 girls, with a mean age of 8.77 years (range, 4–11 years). The average age of the high-altitude group was not significantly different from that of the plain area group (P>0.05). The body weight and height of the high-altitude group were significantly lower than that of the plain area group; however, there was no significant difference in the body mass index between the two groups. The average Cobb’s angle was 79.65°, and the average thoracic kypho was 60.16°. There was no significant difference in the degree of other spinal deformities between the two groups. The thoracic spine curves of both the groups were mainly on the right side, and the proportion of right kyphosis in the high-altitude and plain area groups was 63.16 and 66.67%, respectively, with no significant difference (P>0.05). There were 48 cases of idiopathic scoliosis, 16 of congenital scoliosis, two of 3 neuromuscular scoliosis, and 24 cases of idiopathic scoliosis in the plain area group; there were 14 cases of congenital scoliosis in the high-altitude group. There was no significant difference in the proportion of patients diagnosed with idiopathic scoliosis between both groups (P>0.05). Color Doppler echocardiography examination The PAID, LVEDD, and IVST in the high-altitude group were significantly lower than those in the plain area group (P<0.05). There were no significant differences in the other cardiac color ultrasound indices, and were within the normal range. Pulmonary function examination The results of the pulmonary function examination showed that the FVC, VC, and MVV in the high-altitude group were significantly lower than those in the plain area group (P<0.05). The average predicted FVC% values in the high-altitude and plain area groups were 77.81 and 73.77%, respectively, and the average predicted FEV1% values were 78.65 and 73.05%, respectively (P>0.05), showing mild restrictive and obstructive ventilatory dysfunction. Blood gas analysis The Hct levels of the plain area group (38.49±2.89%) were significantly lower than those of the high-altitude group (40.85±4.47%; P<0.05). Hb levels in the high-altitude group (13.67 ± 1.46 g/L) were significantly higher than those in the plain group (12.85±0.94 g/L; P<0.05). The pCO2 levels of the high-altitude group (33.44±4.7 mmHg) were significantly lower than those of the plain area group (35.92±4.66 mmHg; P<0.05); however, there was no significant between-group difference in pO2 and SO2% levels (P>0.05). Correlations of parameters The correlation analysis between the spinal parameters and cardiopulmonary function measures in the high-altitude group is significant. In the high-altitude group, there was a significant correlation between the angle of the main thoracic curvature, the angle of the upper thoracic curvature, and kyphosis (rho=0.692, rho=0.484). There was a significant correlation between the kypho and upper chest curvature angles (rho=0.519). There was a significant correlation between LVISD, IVSE, RVBD, LALRD, and the MT (rho=-0.399, rho=0.565, rho=-0.358, rho=-0.371); however, there was no significant correlation between the angle of kyphosis and echocardiography index. PO2 and SO2% levels correlated with the angle of the MT (rho=-0.400, rho=-0.406). The upper chest bend angle was significantly correlated with VC, MVV, FVC, and FEV1 (rho=-0.498, rho=-0.451, rho=-0.513, rho=-0.588), while the upper chest bend angle and kyphosis bend were not significantly correlated with the pulmonary function index. There was a significant linear correlation between the UT and FEV1, FVC, and MVV in the high-altitude group. FEV1=1.623-0.011*UT, FVC=1.858-0.012*UT, MVV=54.646-0.286*UT. The results of the correlation analysis between imaging indices and cardiopulmonary function indices indicated that in the high-altitude group, UT showed a clear negative correlation with VC, FEV1, FVC, and MVV. In contrast, UT showed a clear positive correlation with these indices in the plain area group. In the high-altitude group, MT showed no obvious correlation with lung function indexes, whereas in the plain area group, MT showed a negative correlation with lung function indices. Scoliosis is a complex three-dimensional deformity that leads to distortion of body 4 appearance and reduced organ function, often causing irreversible damage to cardiopulmonary function (8, 9). Scoliosis due to rotation and thoracic scoliosis leads to a decrease in thoracic volume and asymmetry between the left and right thorax, which seriously affects the normal development of cardiopulmonary function in patients. The thoracic volume is vital for the development of cardiopulmonary function in children. Studies have shown that the critical period of alveolar and thoracic development in children occurs before the age of 10 years. Alveolar development in children approximately 10 years old is as prevalent as in adults, and the thoracic volume can reach half of that in adults (10, 11). Therefore, alveolar and thoracic development in EOS patients is critical since scoliosis and thoracic deformities can lead to pulmonary dysplasia. Most researchers believe that poor cardiopulmonary function in patients with scoliosis is caused by mechanical compression of bone tissue (12). Tsiligiannis et al. (13) showed that scoliosis changes the position of thoracic organs and affects normal respiratory movement, resulting in restrictive ventilation disorders. Campbell et al. (2) indicated that congenital scoliosis in patients with rib deformities could cause thoracic deformities, affects the normal development of heart and lung function and often leads to thoracic insufficiency syndrome. However, other studies have suggested that lung function is mainly affected by the limited development of the heart and lung caused by scoliosis rather than the mechanical compression caused by simple thoracic deformities (14). Davies et al. and Berend et al. (12, 15, 16) performed autopsy studies on EOS patients. They showed no obvious abnormality in the shape of alveoli, a decreased total number of alveoli, and no decrease in the size of alveoli due to thoracic compression and no decrease in the size of alveoli due to thoracic compression (the size was found to be compensated). Koumbourlis (17) et al. studied the relationship between scoliosis and patients’ circulatory and respiratory functions. They discovered that scoliosis-related deformities prevent patients from exercising like their normal peers, which reduces the number of chest breaths and compensates for the number of abdominal breaths. Regarding the thoracic structure, scoliosis limits the normal development of the chest, causing deformation of the important cardiovascular compression, leading to cardiopulmonary dysfunction. High-altitude areas exhibit a unique geographical environment comprising factors such as low pressure, low PO2, and low air content. Living in low-oxygen and thin-air environments over a long period impacts the development of cardiopulmonary function. An independent risk factor for low birth weight in newborns is the high-altitude environment, which leads to fetal growth restriction and affects the function of the respiratory and cardiovascular systems (5, 18). When the altitude increases by 100 m, the ambient atmospheric pressure decreases by 5 mmHg. Because the oxygen concentration in the atmosphere is constant, the oxygen partial pressure will decrease by approximately 1 mmHg. At sea level, the average pO2 is 150 mmHg. When the altitude is between 3000 and 5500 m, the PO2 decreases between 80 and 100 mmHg. When exposed to hypoxia and a hypobaric environment, people living in a plateau environment will have compensatory regulatory responses to restore the body's internal homeostasis. Over the course of natural selection, this compensatory response may be passed on to offspring through genetic material. The compensatory responses of people at high altitudes to hypoxia and hypobaric environments include increased pulmonary blood perfusion, erythrocytosis, blood viscosity, lung tissue compliance, and a slight increase in 5 pulmonary artery pressure. Studies have shown that people in high-altitude environments have symptoms of right ventricular hypertrophy and pulmonary hypertension, and elevated Hb levels in the body (19-21). In this study, the chest curve was the main bend in EOS patients in plain and high-altitude areas, with Cobb's angle of the main bend >45° in all patients. There was no significant between-group difference in the direction and severity of scoliosis and kyphosis. Idiopathic scoliosis is the primary classification of scoliosis. Excluding congenital cardiac developmental abnormalities, pulmonary artery diameter, LVEDD, and inter-ventricular septum thickness in the high-altitude group were smaller than that in the plain area group. This may be due to structural abnormalities of the heart and lungs caused by long-term low pressure and lack of oxygen in high-altitude areas. To explore the relationship between scoliosis, cardiopulmonary function, and the effect of high altitude on cardiopulmonary function, a correlation analysis was performed. The UT angle in the high-altitude group was correlated with the pulmonary function examination indexes (VC, MVV, FVC, and FEV1), while the UT angle in the plain area group was not significantly correlated with these indexes. Long-term exposure to high and cold climates, low pressure, and low oxygen environments impact the cardiopulmonary structure of patients in high-altitude areas. Therefore, the reduction in thoracic space caused by changes in spinal structure will cause more serious damage to the cardiopulmonary function of patients in high-altitude areas compared to patients in plain areas (22). Therefore, patients with severe scoliosis in high-altitude areas require active surgical intervention to reduce cardiorespiratory impairment associated with scoliosis. The results of pulmonary function tests showed that the average values of FEV1% and FVC% in both groups were < 80%, and there were mild restrictive and obstructive ventilation disorders, indicating that scoliosis and thoracic deformities limited the normal respiratory function of patients. The FVC, VC, and MVV indices of the high-altitude group were significantly lower than those of the plain area group. This could be due to the following: the low temperature at high altitudes contracts the small airways of the lungs and increases ventilatory resistance; the hypobaric and hypoxic environment forces the patients to breathe more times per unit time, increasing the load of respiratory muscles and causing respiratory muscle fatigue; the nutritional status of patients in high-altitude areas is worse than that of patients in plain areas; and the thoracic volume is smaller in patients in high-altitude areas than that of patients in plain areas. Scoliosis with thoracic deformity is often accompanied by limited diaphragm function and decreased chest volume, which leads to a decrease in lung tissue pressure and compliance, pulmonary hypertension, and even serious diseases such as cor pulmonale and respiratory failure (23). Studies have shown that pulmonary dysfunction before surgical treatment increases perioperative respiratory complications such as respiratory insufficiency, atelectasis, and pneumonia (24). Therefore, during clinical treatment, more attention should be paid to evaluating pulmonary function in EOS patients before surgery. For patients at high altitudes or other EOS patients with significantly impaired pulmonary function, it is necessary to carry out preoperative respiratory function training to improve respiratory function (25) and surgical safety and reduce postoperative complications; the comprehensive evaluation of pulmonary function in combination with other disciplines is also possible. 6 Because of the lack of studies comparing lung function between EOS patients in high-altitude and plain areas that are similar to our patient population, it cannot be ruled out whether the decline in lung function indices is affected by spinal deformities. In this study, the number of patients in high-altitude areas was less than that of patients in plain areas. Our results may not be comprehensive enough as there were only a few categories of imaging parameters; therefore, it was difficult to analyze the correlation between other imaging parameters and cardiopulmonary function. Conclusion EOS patients in high-altitude areas had poorer cardiac and pulmonary functions than those who live in plain areas. Cardiopulmonary function and the degree of scoliosis interact with each other. We should pay more attention to preoperative evaluation and postoperative rehabilitation for EOS patients living in high-altitude areas. References: 1.Fletcher ND, Bruce RW.

2023.06.01 02:11 atownthegreat Have had itchy ‘stress rashes’ for the last 5 years and don’t know what to do…

32m, 200 pounds, 5’6. No other health issues.
I started getting itchy rashes in Dec of 2017 and at first it was not that annoying, then less than a year later they got worse.
My eye or lip would get swollen, welts on my body. Really itchy. Would last maybe 12-15 hours.
I went to an allergist who have told me I basically was allergic to myself and I can either get a needle of like 3000ml of antihistamines (something like that) which was around $8000 or just wait it for it to go away cause it might go away in 7 years (though they are not sure).
I decided to wait it out cause I didn’t have the money for the needle. And though my eyes or my lips don’t get swollen anymore, I still get rashes really badly.
I mainly get rashes on my feet and hands now and it’s very uncomfortable.
I have to take 30mg of antihistamines a day from one of the Costco brands.
My rashes don’t seem to be getting worse or better.
Though the rashes are manageable with pills iv probably spent sooo much money buying them and I could have put the money else where.
I don’t know what else to do. If there is a cure? Or maybe it is that I am now reliant on it and it’s an addiction thing?
Edit: I have tried oils and lotions and such and no luck.

The filter looks different than it does in videos and I’m not sure. The guy at the auto parts gave me this one. The wrench is a 64mm I have no idea if it’s going to work or not. Im going to attempt this tomorrow.

2023.06.01 01:21 Code_PM Long distance trip and advice with second car

Hello, wanted to get some advice on my upcoming trip, we're moving from Kentucky to Oregon (2000+ m).
We'll be driving our Subaru Outback 2016 because we have pets. I'm looking at those u-haul pods that they ship out to move the majority of our stuff.
The biggest issue I have now is our second car, a Ford Escape 2005. Ideally I'd like to bring it with us, having a second car in Oregon would be best for our needs, but we're looking for a solution that doesn't involve us driving separately for the whole trip.
I was considering renting a car-hauler and towing the Ford behind the Subaru, but I see that it's over the recommended towing capacity. How bad would it be to try this?
Car moving companies are too expensive, wanted to ask if anyone else had experience with this or know of other methods for moving a second car affordably, any private drivers for hire etc.?

2023.06.01 01:15 Fun_Technician138 Please tell me someone else has broken a windshield trying to replace wipers -.- yikes

I work at a Ford dealership, and basically only work on Fords. RAM Rebel comes in for a works. Everything goes well (besides burning my thumb on hot oil trying to get the oil filter out). Not trying to rush but I am ready to go home since they came in less than an hour before the end of my shift. To my surprise, we have the correct wiper size and the customer wanted them per my recommendation! I’m used to F150 wiper arms that don’t need to be pushed back far to lock into place, but I guess I didn’t push the wiper arm back far enough on the passenger side for this truck and now they need a new windshield! Yikes! Please tell me someone else has done this, I feel so horrible :(

2023.06.01 01:13 soynotboys Blastocystis - Low symptomatic for six months, perscribed Flagyl will update progress

If anyone has the expierience of actually treating Blastocystis please share!
I haven’t the current capacity for herbal or natural remedies and have been perscribed a 10 day round of 3x500mg of Metrodinazole. As my symptoms are only mild brainfog and loose stoole/ IBS-Type I think I will give antibiotics a try. For three months I have also been on a mainly anti-inflammitory diet but only recently got tested for parasites. I will be combining the treatmeant with Boulardii and other probiotics (spaced out so as to not affect the antibiotics), also no-sugar and low-cats (anti-inflammatory) foods. Aditionally i consider garlic and oregano oil. Theres so little info or recovery stories online and apparently negative expierience with Flagyl (so far I feel depression and mental health effects) but I will try to document my parasite eradication attempt online.

2023.06.01 00:53 koalakat_boos Are my component choices over the top? How can I tell what I need?

Beginning disclaimers: I am new to building a PC but I have been using a gaming laptop long enough and I want to finally get a PC and I want to build it because it will probably be cheaper and I want to. Second, I find I have a tendency to overestimate what I need sometimes which is why I am making this post.

Now for the meat of the question: I am using a website to try and get a general idea of what parts I want to give me a ballpark for price before I start narrowing down to a concrete choice. I still have a lot of research and work to do to figure out the specific parts I want but at every component, I find myself faced with questions that don't seem to have any good answers online.
Let me preface with this: I am building a PC mainly for gaming but also for other things on the side (like coding, programming, editing photos, normal stuff like word processing, etc). If I can help it, I would like to keep in the budget of how much I spent on my current laptop which was $2600. If I can go cheaper, that's better, but I don't want to spend too much more than that. I will not spend any more than 3k.
Specifications is the tricky part because I feel like I am overestimating what I really need and choosing higher end parts than I actually need which is where I need the advice. Right now, these are the parts I am thinking about.
CPU: Intel Core i9-13900K 3 GHz 24-Core Processor
The processor in my laptop is a 6 core Intel i7-9750H and I find it is constantly bottlenecking playing games so I moved up to the i9 for this plan. I don't know if this is really necessary or even if the i9 I have selected is a good choice but I just want something that can handle the games I play without maxing out and getting real toasty. I did read that this i9 runs hot and I will need to select a good cooler to combat this which I will do if I need.
GPU: NVIDIA RTX 4070 chipset
The GPU in my laptop is one thing that I think is lacking - I currently have a GTX 1660 Ti and I just find I keep wishing I had better. For my build, I have decided I at least want an RTX (big surprise) and I want something newer that can handle pretty graphics. I also have a VR headset so I want something that can handle that as well without too much trouble. I was thinking about the RTX 3080 but a review I read stated that the 4070 boasts similar specs and performance at a cheaper price. I don't need a top of the line GPU like a 4090 but I do want something good so that I don't have to worry about turning up the graphics in games. I also have played around with shader packs in Minecraft but my laptop can't handle it so something that can handle those would be nice.
RAM: Largely undecided - 32 to 64 gbs
I say largely undecided because this one is really confusing me. I have been digging into DDR4 RAM and DDR5 RAM and I kind of understand the differences but deciding is difficult. As I understand it, DDR5 RAM runs at a higher clock speed which compensates for its (currently) high CAS latency, while DDR4 RAM has been around longer and has more improvement in its technology so it has a much lower CAS latency. In essence, DDR4 RAM can have First Word Latency as low as 7 while the lowest I have seen with DDR5 is like 9, but that can't be the only thing to consider right? How do I figure out what clock speed to go with and how do I choose between DDR4 and DDR5? As far as capacity, my laptop currently has 64 GBS of RAM and I find it to be plenty. The one thing I never seem to run out of is memory, but is 64 GBs overkill? Is an upgraded rig like I am looking at going to utilise that amount of memory or is 64 GBs unnecessary? Would I be better off with 32 or 48 GBs? I don't do a whole lot of video processing (I used to), more just photo editing, gaming, and programming, so should I consider downgrading or stick to having lots of overhead?

Lastly, every time I look at choosing a component, I am faced with the choice of what manufacturer. I want to choose good quality parts that will last me but won't break the bank, so how do I go about choosing the manufacturer for parts like storage drives, graphics cards, etc.? Is there manufacturers to avoid? Those that tend to stand out over others? Any advice to this point would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for reading and responding. I know this is a long post but I really appreciate any input and help I can get.

A big short in Treasurys? Traders are building up bets around a debt ceiling resolution
Speculators have been building up a “historically massive” short position in U.S. Treasury futures ahead of what could be $1 trillion of new debt issuance on the heels of a debt-ceiling resolution, according to Macquarie’s sales and trading global macro strategy desk.
Bond speculators have been taking up a large number of short positions in 2-year, 5-year and 10-year Treasury futures TY00, -0.05% (see chart), according to the Macquarie team, which pinpointed the combined tally of contracts at nearly 3 million as of late May, or the most since 2000.
The buildup matters because much of Wall Street has been focused on the brief spike in yields on some Treasury bills due in early June to above 7%, or climbing U.S. sovereign CDS spreads as the U.S. teetered toward the brink of a default.
But Macquarie’s team thinks the more important development tied to the debt-ceiling fight has been the significant number of wagers in Treasury futures in the past three weeks.
A look at Commodity Futures Trading Commission data shows an explosion of speculation taking hold in Treasury futures, which Macquarie’s team led by Thierry Wizman pegged as the biggest buildup in short interest in 10-year Treasury futures since 2000. So has been the combined short interest in 2-year, 5-year and 10-year futures.
Short bets are a wager that prices for a stock or bond will fall. Since bond prices and yields move in the opposite direction, fixed-income speculators would be focused on the potential for yields to climb when new Treasury supply outstrips demand.
The Macquarie team said the heavy positioning likely reflect traders “attempting to hedge away or sidestep the inevitable issuance of new bonds,” in a Wednesday trading desk note.
Positioning for a flood
Like others on Wall Street, Macquarie’s team expects heavy U.S. Treasury issuance of $500 billion to $1 trillion over the next few weeks or months, once the debt-limit deal is written into law.
“Markets are trying to get ahead of that as much a s possible,” said George Catrambone, head of fixed income and head of trading at DWS Group, in a phone interview Wednesday, adding that some investors are factoring in higher Treasury yields.
“But I don’t think anyone is quite sure where the demand is going to be,” he said.
Catrambone also said it’s hard to pin any single rationale to open futures contracts. He pointed to other “crosscurrents” at play in markets, including that Congress still has yet to do its part to increase the debt-ceiling.
Investors also aren’t clear on the path lower for inflation to the Federal Reserve’s 2% annual target, he said, or about the mixed signals from Federal Reserve officials on if there will be another rate hike in June, or a pause.
What’s more, the Treasury might consider getting creative to keep markets on an even keel, including by issuing 5-month bills or other maturities that suit investor needs, Catrambone said.
How it could backfire
Wizman’s team at Macquarie thinks there’s potential for short positions in Treasury futures to backfire if a flood of issuance from a debt-ceiling increase doesn’t cause Treasury yields to rise.
They pointed out that the 10-year Treasury yield TMUBMUSD10Y, 3.647% climbed to about 3.8% in late May from about 3.4% over the past two weeks.
Given the climb, “we’re not convinced that yields can rise further into the issuance of new bonds,” the team said. They also expect “pent-up demand” for Treasury debt to keep yields in check, given the lack of new supply since the $31.4 trillion debt-limit was breached in January.
“So from a technician’s perspective, that’s a setup for a short squeeze that takes the 10-year and 5-year yields back to around 3.5%, with a little help from somedownbeat U.S. data over the next few weeks.”
Treasury yields were mostly lower Wednesday, as were stocks, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA, -0.41% down 0.4%, the S&P 500 index SPX, -0.61% off 0.6% and the Nasdaq Composite Index down 0.6%, according to FactSet.
The 10-year Treasury was at 3.636% at the end of May, booking its biggest monthly yield climb since February, according to Dow Jones Market Data.


  • A bunch of Wall Street gamblers have made a historically hefty bet against U.S. Treasury futures, with new debt issuance looming large - sounds familiar, huh?
  • Poking the Bear: They've got nearly 3 million short positions on 2, 5, and 10-year futures, the biggest pile-on since Y2K. I guess they're expecting bond yields to climb when the new supply drops.
  • Why You Should Care: Now, some are watching the spike in yields and the U.S. flirtation with default but Macquarie's team reckons the real game-changer is this swell of Treasury futures shorts.
  • Riding the Wave: This could be traders trying to "hedge away" or dodge the flood of new bonds coming our way - between $500 billion to $1 trillion worth, once the debt-limit deal is law.
  • The Plot Twist: But what if the yields don't climb as expected?
    • We might be staring at a short squeeze in the Treasury market, driving 10-year and 5-year yields back to around 3.5%.

"The proposed amendments would require that the clearing agency mark positions to market at least daily, monitor risk on an ongoing basis & have the capability to collect margin depending on changes in clearinghouse conditions, such as a breach of risk capacity"
Elizabeth Fitzgerald:
"the proposed amendments to this rule would require that a covered clearing agency’s risk-based margin system monitor intraday exposure on an ongoing basis and include the authority and operational capacity to make intraday margin calls as frequently as circumstances warrant"
Haoxiang Zhu Director Division of Trading on proposed SEC changes:
"The changes would provide that the margin system must monitor intraday exposure and further specify the circumstances in which a covered clearing agency must have the authority and operational capacity to make intraday margin calls"
SEC Commissioner Crenshaw:
"Margin calls are sometimes pointed to as a source of procyclicality" "This change ensures that covered clearing agencies are aware of intraday exposures that may arise, rather than potentially remaining unaware of them and delaying any ability to react until end of day."

2023.06.01 00:26 Alice687 Ear Wax Removal: What to Expect During the Procedure

Ear Wax Removal: What to Expect During the Procedure
Explanation of the importance of ear wax removal
Ear wax removal is important for several reasons:
  1. Hearing: Excessive ear wax buildup can lead to partial or complete blockage of the ear canal, which can affect your ability to hear properly. Ear wax acts as a natural protective barrier, trapping dirt, dust, and other foreign particles that may enter the ear. However, when it accumulates excessively, it can cause a blockage that interferes with sound waves reaching the eardrum. Removing the excess wax can restore normal hearing.
  2. Prevention of complications: If ear wax is not regularly removed, it can cause various complications. One common problem is cerumen impaction, where the wax hardens and becomes impacted deep within the ear canal. This can cause symptoms such as pain, dizziness, tinnitus (ringing in the ears), and even temporary hearing loss. Removing the impacted wax reduces the risk of these complications.
  3. Ear health: Cleaning the ears and removing excess wax helps maintain overall ear health. When ear wax accumulates, it can create a favorable environment for the growth of bacteria, fungi, and other microorganisms. This can lead to ear infections, itching, and irritation. By regularly removing excess wax, you reduce the risk of these infections and keep your ears clean and healthy.
  4. Medical examination and diagnosis: Sometimes, excessive ear wax can obstruct the view of the ear canal, making it difficult for healthcare professionals to examine the ear during routine check-ups or when investigating ear-related symptoms. Removing the wax allows for a clear visual examination, making it easier to identify any underlying issues and provide appropriate treatment.
It's important to note that ear wax removal should be done carefully to avoid causing any harm to the ear. While some people may be able to effectively clean their ears using home remedies or over-the-counter ear drops, others may require professional assistance from a healthcare provider or an ear specialist (otolaryngologist) for safe and effective removal, especially if there are underlying ear conditions or concerns.
Ear Wax Removal

Explanation of the Procedure
The procedure for ear wax removal can vary depending on the severity of the wax buildup and individual circumstances. Here are some common methods used:
  1. Ear irrigation: This procedure involves using a syringe or a specialized irrigation device to gently flush warm water into the ear canal. The water helps to soften and dislodge the ear wax, which is then flushed out. Ear irrigation should be done with caution and under the supervision of a healthcare professional to prevent damage to the eardrum.
  2. Manual removal: A healthcare professional may use specialized tools like a curette or forceps to manually remove the ear wax. They will use magnification and adequate lighting to carefully grasp and extract the wax from the ear canal. Manual removal should be done by trained professionals to ensure safety and prevent injury.
  3. Suction: In some cases, a gentle suction device may be used to remove the ear wax. This method is often used when the wax is tightly packed or impacted. The suction device creates a vacuum that pulls out the wax from the ear canal. Similar to manual removal, this procedure should be performed by a healthcare professional.
  4. Ear drops: Over-the-counter or prescription ear drops may be recommended to soften the ear wax, making it easier to remove. These drops usually contain oils, hydrogen peroxide, or other agents that help break down the wax. It's important to follow the instructions provided by your healthcare provider or the product label when using ear drops.
It's worth noting that DIY methods like cotton swabs, ear candles, or other objects inserted into the ear canal are not recommended for ear wax removal. These methods can push the wax deeper into the ear, cause injury, or lead to complications. It's best to consult with a healthcare professional for safe and effective ear wax removal, especially if you're experiencing symptoms or have concerns.
Preparing for the Procedure
If you're scheduled for an ear wax removal procedure, here are some steps you can take to prepare:
  1. Consultation: If you haven't already done so, schedule a consultation with a healthcare professional, such as a primary care physician or an ear specialist (otolaryngologist). They will assess your condition, determine the best method for wax removal, and provide instructions specific to your situation.
  2. Follow instructions: Carefully follow any instructions provided by your healthcare professional regarding the procedure. This may include guidelines on medication usage, ear drops, or any necessary pre-procedure preparations.
  3. Medications: Inform your healthcare professional about any medications you are taking, including over-the-counter drugs and supplements. They will advise you on whether to continue or temporarily discontinue any medications that might interfere with the procedure or affect your recovery.
  4. Inform about medical history: Provide your healthcare professional with a comprehensive medical history, including any previous ear conditions, surgeries, or allergies. This information will help them tailor the procedure to your specific needs and minimize any potential risks or complications.
  5. Communicate concerns or symptoms: If you have any concerns or specific symptoms related to your ears, be sure to communicate them to your healthcare professional. This information can assist them in understanding your condition better and providing appropriate care.
  6. Avoid self-attempts: Refrain from attempting to remove the ear wax yourself using cotton swabs, ear candles, or other objects. These methods can push the wax deeper into the ear, cause injury, or worsen the situation. Trust the expertise of a healthcare professional for safe and effective removal.
  7. Stay informed: Familiarize yourself with the procedure and the expected outcome. Ask your healthcare professional any questions you may have regarding the process, recovery, or potential complications.
By following these steps and being prepared, you can help ensure a smooth and successful ear wax removal procedure. Remember to always seek professional medical advice for any concerns or issues related to your ears.
Ear Wax Removal Techniques
There are several techniques for earwax removal. Here are some common methods:
  1. Ear drops: Over-the-counter ear drops or prescribed ear drops can be used to soften the ear wax, making it easier to remove. These drops usually contain oils, hydrogen peroxide, or other agents that help break down the wax. Follow the instructions provided by your healthcare professional or the product label for proper usage.
  2. Ear irrigation: Ear irrigation, also known as ear syringing or ear lavage, involves using a syringe or a specialized irrigation device to flush warm water into the ear canal. The water helps to soften and dislodge the ear wax, which is then flushed out. Ear irrigation should be done with caution and under the supervision of a healthcare professional to prevent damage to the eardrum.
  3. Manual removal: A healthcare professional may use specialized tools like a curette or forceps to manually remove the ear wax. They will use magnification and adequate lighting to carefully grasp and extract the wax from the ear canal. Manual removal should be done by trained professionals to ensure safety and prevent injury.
  4. Suction: A gentle suction device may be used to remove the ear wax. This method is often used when the wax is tightly packed or impacted. The suction device creates a vacuum that pulls out the wax from the ear canal. Similar to manual removal, this procedure should be performed by a healthcare professional.
It's important to note that the choice of technique depends on the severity of the ear wax buildup, individual circumstances, and the professional judgment of your healthcare provider. They will determine the most appropriate method for your specific situation.
It's strongly advised against using DIY methods like cotton swabs, ear candles, or other objects inserted into the ear canal for ear wax removal. These methods can push the wax deeper into the ear, cause injury, or lead to complications. Always seek professional medical advice for safe and effective ear wax removal.
Post-procedure Care
After undergoing an ear wax removal procedure, it's important to follow some post-procedure care instructions to ensure proper healing and prevent complications. Here are some general guidelines:
  1. Avoid touching or inserting objects: Refrain from touching or inserting any objects into your ears following the procedure. This includes cotton swabs, fingers, or any other instruments. Such actions can disrupt the healing process, cause injury, or introduce bacteria into the ear.
  2. Keep the ears dry: Avoid getting water or excessive moisture in your ears for a few days after the procedure. Moisture can impede the healing process and increase the risk of infection. If you need to shower or wash your hair, use earplugs or cotton balls coated with petroleum jelly to protect your ears from water.
  3. Use prescribed medications: If your healthcare professional has prescribed any medications, such as ear drops or antibiotics, make sure to use them as instructed. Follow the dosage and duration recommended by your healthcare provider to aid in the healing process and prevent infection.
  4. Monitor for complications: Keep an eye out for any unusual symptoms or signs of infection, such as increased pain, persistent drainage from the ear, fever, or worsening hearing loss. If you experience any concerning symptoms, contact your healthcare provider for further evaluation and guidance.
  5. Follow-up appointments: Attend any scheduled follow-up appointments with your healthcare professional. These appointments allow them to monitor your progress, ensure the effectiveness of the procedure, and address any ongoing concerns or complications.
  6. Gentle cleaning: If your healthcare professional advises you to clean your ears after the procedure, do so gently. Use a damp cloth or tissue to clean the outer ear, avoiding inserting anything into the ear canal. Do not attempt to remove any residual wax yourself; allow the ears to naturally clean themselves over time.
  7. Seek professional advice: If you have any questions, concerns, or persistent symptoms, do not hesitate to reach out to your healthcare provider. They are best equipped to provide personalized advice and address any issues that may arise.
Remember, the specific post-procedure care instructions may vary depending on the technique used and individual circumstances. Always follow the advice provided by your healthcare professional for optimal healing and recovery.

2023.06.01 00:15 KillJoyNana How much money to sink into a car before it's not worth it anymore

Car has been shaking and jerking while idling and moving between park, reverse, and drive. The car was shutting off while driving and had a hatf start, but luckily that seems to have been resolved... for now. We've sunk around 3k into this 2013 Hyundai accent and no one can tell us why it's jerking. Work done to try and fix the problem with no luck:
  1. Fuel injectors flushed
  2. Oil change to synthetic
  3. Crankshaft position sensor changed
  4. New battery and clean terminals
  5. New spark plugs
  6. Spark plugs redone because wasn't done right the first time
  7. Multiple diagnostics with NO code popping
At this point no one can solve the issue and almost all the mechanics say they can't replicate the problem which I find hard to believe (we're going to start recording the problem to show) I think it's the transmission but since there's no code, the dealership won't look further into it.

2023.05.31 23:58 SpitefulMechanic351 Do you really need to argue with me?

Just a few quick stories from past shops I've worked at. I don't really remember dates for these, just mainly having to explain to customers who thought they knew better why their catruck/van is broken and in need of repairs. It should be noted that when I say "my shop", I mean the shop where I was employed, I've never owned my own shop nor do I want to.
Story 1, the Econoline
Customer brings their early 2000s E-150 cargo van to my shop. They want a set of tires and an alignment. Van is brought inside, steering feels vague just driving it through the parking lot into the shop. After the lift gets set, but before the van actually goes up into the air, I drag a floor jack over so I can check the ball joints with a pry bar. All 4 ball joints are toast on this thing, so they'll need to be replaced before we can do the alignment.
An estimate for repairs is written, parts are priced out and located and the customer is called. It should be noted, at this point, that I'm not really supposed to talk to the customers. That's the service adviser's job. The customer demands to talk to me about my diagnosis. Our conversation went like this;
Him: How do you know the ball joints are bad? Me: explains my testing method, which is the method that Ford recommends for checking the ball joints on that particular model Him: Well, did you put an axial runout gauge on it to measure how much play there it? You said it was excessive. Me: Sir, in accordance with the manufacturer's guidelines, 0 thousandths of an inch of play is allowed, meaning that any play is excessive. There is no need to measure it to see just how bad it is, this is a "Pass/fail" type of test. I'm going to give you back to {insert service adviser's name here} now. You have yourself a nice day.
He agreed to the repairs.
Story 2, the Legacy
Customer brings her mid 1990s Subaru Legacy to my shop complaining of a lack of heat out of the vents and a weird smell inside the car. Getting in reveals the distinct smell of coolant. I poke the carpet on the passenger floorboard and it's soaked in coolant. Leaking heater core, meaning the dash has to come out. I hate these kinds of repairs, I'm a little big to be doing work on/behind dashboards. Regardless, the estimate is written for a replacement heater core and changing the coolant since we're going to be draining out about half of the system anyway. She got mad when we recommended changing the coolant. She said "What you gots to change the coolits fo'? It blows out hot air not hot water, damn." She declined the repairs.
Story 3, the Mustang
Customer comes in with a 2005ish Mustang. He wants an oil change, tire rotation and a state safety inspection. Part of the state inspection involves a suspension check, and like pretty much every Mustang of this vintage, it needs both lower ball joints. Lower ball joints on this particular model are serviced as a complete control arm, and they both need to be replaced to pass state inspection. After being told about the needed repairs, the customer wants to come out into the shop and see the ball joints for himself.
I hand my flashlight to the service adviser and point to the lower ball joint. "Please watch right here" I tell them, as I begin to shake the wheel back and forth, making the lower ball joint move around in ways it's not supposed to do. Now the customer wants to have a conversation about the repairs. Him "Do I really need to replace the control arms to pass inspection?" Me "Yes sir. Virginia law states that is there is abnormal play in the suspension then you reject" Him "But it's an older car and I don't really want to put much money into it, are you sure you can't pass it as it is?" Me "Sir, it's an if/then statement. If there is abnormal movement then you reject, not 'if there's abnormal movement you reject unless it's an older car then never mind'. Your ball joints move abnormally, therefore they are in need of replacement, therefore you can either agree to the repairs, or I'll have our inspector put a rejection sticker on your windshield." Him "So you're not a state inspector?" Me "No sir, I'm not, but I've studied the book that Virginia provides to it's state inspection stations. Would you like me to bring one of our inspectors over for a second opinion?" Him "Yeah, you do that." I go bring one of our inspectors over and he verifies everything that I just told the customer. The customer said "I've got to think about it", had a rejection sticker put in the windshield and I never saw the car again. It's possible he came back on a Saturday when I wasn't working, or maybe not
