Which Test Kits for Newbie?

Of these? Silica Iodine Nitrate Nitrite Strontium ORP Boron Iron Thanks this for the time being (or possibly ever). Boron - I really can't think of a reason to test of anyone specifically adding boron to their tanks. Iron - Unless you're specifically wanting


Ill say after NOT adding iodine for 7 years and having amazing growth and not doing water changes going to go buy a new test kit Iodine isn't required by corals: /issues/mar2003/chem.htm In addition, the iodine kits seem to be harder to trust than many kits, IME

Answers:There are a wide range of bacteria that can hydrolyze starch -- everything from Neisseria to Bacillus. (note: starch media was originally developed to isolate Neisseria!) To check for starch hydrolysis: 1) Streak your plate and incubate for 24-48 hours; 2) Remove a small amount of the growth on the plate; 3) Flood the plate with Gram's iodine. Areas without starch will not turn blue! For more information about starch media; check the Difco/BBL Manual ... link below!


Answers:When iodine is added to any food containing starch a beautiful dark blue colour is formed. The animation shows you that bread, potatoes, pasta and rice contain starch. Carrots do not. Starch is also found in biscuits, cake, and bananas. It is the storage chemical used by most plants.

Question:I had a heart treadmill stress test because of chest and neck pain when I am mowing the yard, climbing a hill, etc. I passed it, but the pain continues on exertion (stops when I sit down). The cardiologist says I should have further testing. I guess what I am wondering is what the odds are that you can have blocked arteries if you passed a stress test (doctor was vague when I asked that question).

Answers:The answer is that chest pain with exertion is more diagnostic for blocked arteries than a stress test. If you continue to have exertional chest pain, brought on by exertion, relieved by rest. Then the definitive test is an angiogram. Stress testing is depending on which study you read is about 85% accurate. Depending on the artery and degree of blockage it can move up or down as far as accuracy. Smaller blockages in the 3 main arteries will tend to not be picked up. Typically has to be greater than 70% blockage or greater and about a coin flip if it is a 50% blockage. As it approaches 100% blockage, well the test nears 100% accuracy. Based on flow has to be diminished to cause a strees test failure. Also there are limitations based on each individual stress test as well as interpretation errors. Like a nuclear stress test can show normal if you have a multivessel blockage as well as stress echocardiography. Poor windows of aquiring images as well as technologist not getting the images before the heart recuperates. Given that stress testing is designed to separate the wheat from the chaff as 14 out of 15 patients with chest pain pass it and they are 20 times less expensive than an angiogram. They are very valuable. But you clearly need an angiogram based on your complaint as stated here. I dont know a cardiologist who would not do one based on the fact you have continued chest pain with exertion. Now if you said every time you laid down after eating a pepperoni pizza to go to bed you have chest pain. Itd be a harder sell, youd get a purple pill and be on your way. But to answer your question, I say 15% wont be picked up based on research I have read. When someone comes back and passes with the symptoms and other hiistory taking rules other causes out. then the most prudent and easy thing to do is the angiogram. A simple xray test and a day procedure. Its the gold standard for diagnosing blockages in the arteries. You can actually see them. Stress testing indirectly measures whats called perfusion and also inducible ischemia or lack of blood to the heart. That means its indirect. They look at the muscle via ultrasound or radioacive absorption with a gamma camera. The stress actually does not look at the arteries at all. 64 slice ct angiogram can now do what an angiogram does but with a few hundred chest xrays so now were back to angiograms in the cath lab being the best test. 20 minute painless test. They run a flexible "straw" a mm or so in diameter and inject iodine directly into the arteries of the heart. They run an xray movie and the iodine absorbs the xrays illuminating the lumen of ther areteries. You can see the arterial blockages and count them. If you flunk a stress test, that test would be done absolutely anyhow. Stress testing is a cost saving test and a step in the diagnostic process to mainly alleviate patient concern. THe angiogram blows it out of the water as far as usefulness. And besides. If you are say 50 years and you have an angiogram and your heart is clean as a whistle at that age. Well hell, thats not going to change, might as well start smoking and not worrying about your cholesterold> I kid, I kid As far as passing a stress test and having a heart attack. Stress testing only picks up "FLOW LIMITING" blockages, usually of 70% or greater. Any blockage, even a 10% blockage can cause a heart attack and the reason why is that the blockage has a consistency of toothpaste covered by a single cell layer of endothelium. Its not very stable and often bursts. Then scars and you get calcium deposits. Every time it ruptures, it spews chemical messengers into the bloodstream like a pimple bursting and the body sends platelets and others to clot it off like a cut on the finger. So now you might have a 10% blockage ruptured with a 90% clot sitting on top of it causing a heart attack. Generally it is in people who are couch potatoes and not taking or following their cholesterol. Taking a statin drug makes the toothpaste into fibrinolyzed structure and can rupture. Thats why drugs block heart attacks. Now when someone is not used to exercise does a stress test. that can rip open the friable cap on the blockage and cause the plaque rupture and subsequent clot forming blockage. That is why people are prescribed betablockers to prevent blood pressure surges ripping open blockages and causing clot to form over it. 4 drugs prevent heart attack betablocker statin aspirin ace inhibitor Stents and bypass only alleviate symptoms. The drugs prevent heart attack as well as exercise an hour a day to 70% of predicted maximum heart rate and eating properly. No cigarettes and ifthe person is diabetic, they have to get skinny. Heart attacks are completely avoidable disease. Its a choice of lifestyle and laziness. With all we know about cardiac medicine, the joke is it all boils down to walking an hour a day and taking the meds. If you want a heart attack, the best way to do it is, smoke, be a couch potato, ignore taking the medications to prevent heart attacks If you have failed to control risk factors. then arteries are damaged and once they are, there is no going back. The only forward course is to prevent further damage

New Airborne Laser TestBed Footage, Missile Shot Down 2/11/2010 First Successful Test

Read more, here: February 11 2010. A modified Boeing 747-400F with more than 7 tons of optics up front and a megawatt-class laser in back destroyed a liquid-fueled ballistic missile target while both were in flight. The Missile Defense Agency's Airborne Laser TestBed reportedly carries a megawatt-class chemical oxygen iodine laser that's coupled with precise pointing and atmospheric correction equipment. And it has now proven capable of knocking a ballistic missile out of the sky. The system is the result of a cooperative effort led by Boeing, in partnership with Northrop Grumman (which supplies the laser) and Lockheed Martin (which is developing the fire control system). The aim is to deter enemy missile attacks by disabling the attacking missiles while they are in the boost phase. That means hitting a target capable of 4000 miles per hour with a beam of light traveling somewhere close to 670 million miles per hour. The US Missile Defense Agency hopes similar devices will one day be able to track and attack multiple targets, at a range of hundreds of kilometers, at at a lower cost than current technologies." But For now, the price of the program is a problem. Defense Secretary Robert Gates canceled what had been an order for a second airborne laser system. The original, will continue to participate in experiments.

Test Stump Remover for Chlorate, Nitrate or Metabisulfite

How to test tree stump remover for potassium chlorate, potassium nitrate, or sodium metabisulfite. All of these chemicals are useful and stump removers can be an easy to obtain source for them. The stump remover SHOULD be labeled. But if it isn't you can perform these tests. First mix an equal portion of sugar and stump remover and add sulfuric acid. This might cause the mixture to catch fire (add more acid if it doesn't go at first). If it does, it's most likely potassium or sodium chlorate (usually potassium). If it doesn't light with sulfuric acid, then try torching it. If it starts to burn on it's own, then it's potassium nitrate. To be absolutely certain, you can run the nitrate test we already showed in a previous video: If it's sodium metabisulfite, it won't burn with sugar under any circumstances. To confirm it's metabisulfite, in a separate container of 10mL of water add 1gram of the stump remover and 0.5 grams of iodine from one of our previous videos: If it is sodium metabisulfite it will fizz and dissolve as seen in the video. Once you've identified the stump remover you can start doing experiments! Chlorate - Make fire without matches: Chlorate - fire storm in a test tube: Nitrates - Make nitric acid: Metabisulfite - Make Sulfuric Acid:
