OK, this is how it looks like now. I'll stop here for a while at least. Maybe go on to work with a small font version with regular details of masses and stuff.

Inception: Psychologists Show That Embedding Primes In a Person's Speech Can Influence People's Decision Making
https://medicalxpress.com/news/2020-07-psychologists-embedding-primes-person-speech.html

A pair of psychologists at Goldsmiths, University of London has found that embedding primes in a person's speech and gestures can influence people's decision-making. In their paper published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Alice Pailhès and Gustav Kuhn describe experiments they conducted with volunteers and primes and what they learned from them.

In both psychology and magic circles, primes are known as actions or words that unconsciously influence the thinking of another person. One example is a policeman interrogating a witness tapping his ring while inquiring about jewelry a suspect might have been wearing. It is a technique magicians have used for years. They prime a person or audience by giving them subtle verbal or physical clues to get them to choose a number during a guessing trick, or a card during a card trick. In this new effort, the researchers tested the practice to see if it actually works.

Alice Pailhès et al. Influencing choices with conversational primes: How a magic trick unconsciously influences card choices, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (2020)

Insensible before the wave so soon released by callous fate. Affected most, they understand the least, and understanding, when it comes, invariably arrives too late

I'm so tempted to post a few of similar kind but unfortunately they are not arctic related but from the Alps and Andes, so I just enjoy yours and wait for an opportunity and the glaciers etc. threads so to be On Topic.

Once I made a 130km walk on a galcier that now is 30 km shorter and 50m lower.

While once we could jump into the mountain hut for the night one now has to climb up for 45' to get there.

Crazy, innit? Those pics of the Robson Glacier tell a tale, as well - it filled that entire valley back in the 1910's. There's some signage there showing such. Now I hike where there would have been tens of meters of ice.  :'(

Feel a bit shady asking you Guys but might you spread my 'gofundme' page around your other social media outlets/following for me? Thanks in advance!

https://www.gofundme.com/f/fund-an-acoustic-bass-for-ian?utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=p_cp+share-sheet

My right arm/shoulder was crippled by our UK health service back in 67' when I turned up at A&E with a Greenstick Fracture to my right elbow.

Sadly the Ward Sister decided that ,as it was Sat Tea time and busy,she'd become a Dr and so abandoned any protocol declaring my arm 'Strained' and so bandaged it tightly.

Sadly, it being a fracture, the arm tried to swell up overnight collapsing the blood supply and so killing the muscle (Volkmann's ischemic contracture) leaving my hand in a tight fist and with no feeling up to my shoulder.

4 years of daily (apart from Easter Sunday/Christmas Day and New Years day) physio at the Hospital gave me some use of my arm and the 'stretching' devices I was strapped into every night gave me pincer grip for my right thumb & forefinger.

I was right handed BTW

The regime of exercises keeps my hand open (not in a fist) and I've transposed some of the daily exercises onto the guitar.

This made me discover that the movement of the other 3 fingers, apart from being restricted, have the abilities an y 4 year old has with their favoured hand?

Moving up to a Bass string (from a steel string folk/nylon string Spanish) might further aid me recover the use of my hand?

I know at 57 yrs old it's late in the day but humour me eh?

Sadly , back in 67', working class Brits weren't that litigious and I was 4 years 1 month myself....

The 'Specialist' was fuming when he heard of what had occurred so I do not know what became of the Ward Sister but I do not think she will have just had a few choice words from him?

The Contracture is generally found in old folk or folk in earthquake zones. Old folk have falls and compress their own limb until they are rescued and Earthquake victims are crushed under buildings so to find a healthy boy so mutilated really upset him (I recall).
He did use my case in the Royal Liverpool teaching hospital though!....

In the UK you have 7 years to make any claim and no company would accept the case when I came to realise that I should have received compensation for my losses so the case died (no win no fee companies)

If you know some other way around this 'legal position' I would be all ears my friend! (I do feel that the 'case notes', with the specialists comments, will still be out there due to the 'rarity' of the condition in one so young in the UK?).

Congratulations Gray-Wolf! :) Very glad for you to be able to (this quick) realise your goal and dream I guess because now you can start another path. A path full of other people and personal exploration and satisfaction. May your boat steer into good waters.

Thanks nanning!

I'm into overshoot so the excess is going to buy musical instruments for the kiddies who visit 'Francis House' in Didsbury, Manchester.

It is a charity that give respite to terminal/seriously disabled kiddies and used to care for my Son Luker prior to his passing.

It's nice that I can spend a few weeks now pushing for funding for them in a kind of 'payback' for the kindness folk showed me?
