Random History fact that you might not have known!

2021.11.29 01:58 justanotherbiguy123 Random History fact that you might not have known!

It's December 21st, 1898. French scientist Madame Marie Curie first discovered Radium. A element which the world now knows is radioactive. The world saw it as a miracle cure to everything. People believed that it would cure cancer, they believed it could cure arthritis, any thing that was wrong people believed that Radium could cure it.
Companies mixed it in with creams to help heal the skin. Infused it with water(Radithor) for consumption. Soon after, companies like The United States Radium Corporation hired a bunch of young woman to paint luminous clocks and watches with radium infused paint. The demand for luminous watched increased as America entered WWI.
These women were told to 'point' the brushes with their lips. You can probably see where this is going. After long periods of consumption, people began to get sick.
Amelia "Mollie" Maggia was one of the first to go. She reported a toothache, which still caused pain after multiple surgeries. Maggia was evaluated by Dr. Joseph Knef, who first diagnosed her with Pyorrhea. Though even after she was treated, the pain didn't ease. She went to multiple doctors to be treated for different things - to no avail. Dr. Knef saw her again, and touched her jawbone. Which fell apart. Her entire lower jaw was removed, just by lifting it from her mouth.
Maggia succumbed to the radium poisoning. Becoming the first of 'The Radium Girls.' The death certificate said Maggia died of Syphilis.
Katherine Schaub (A 'Radium Girl') said "I was asked to paint dials. I said I would like to try it." In 1917. After breaking out in pimples Schaub went to the doctor. Though pimples weren't really a concern as she was 15, after watching Maggia get sick and pass away. It was clear that minor symptoms could eventually prove fatal. She went to the doctor, which led her to believe that it was phosphorus in the pain causing it. A while later after it was proven the phosphorus wasn't causing any harm, she went back to work and her pimples went away.
These ladies were nicknames the 'Ghost girls' because everything about them glowed. In Cecil Drinkers report it said "...Their hair, faces, arms, neck, the dresses, the underclothes, even the corsets on the dial painters were luminous...".
After a couple years pass a few girls(Quinta Maggia McDonald, Katherine Schaub, and Grace Fryer) went to see Dr. Harrison Martland. He ran some tests and concluded that Radium was the cause of their suffering. Even though the girls had been trying to find a lawyer to help sure the USRC, it wasn't until the first male dialpainter died before people took the case seriously. A lawyer by the name of Raymond Berry agreed to take on Fryers case.
Eventually, the court sided with the Radium Girls. And the USRC gave five women $10,000, an additional $600 for every year, and they agreed to pay the medical bills until their death.
"...It was 1931 before 'Radium Necrosis' was changed to 'Radium Poisoning' in the Law Books of NJ- thanks to both the girls and the Consumers League." - Kate Moore
The sad part about all of this is, radium paint was still used to paint watches and clocks until the 1970's. Even after these girls - who were OUR age - died from Radium poisoning. Before the court sided with the girls Grace Fryer and both sisters of Amelia Maggia had been bedridden and left without teeth.
The bones of these girls are still radioactive today. After a hundred years. If you take a geiger counter over the graves of one of the Radium Girls it will still click. And will still glow for longer than we will live. Their bones still glow in their graves from the effect of Radium poisoning.
This story has been adapted into a film on netflix, a book, as well as a two-act drama.
And this is your depressing random history fact!

2021.11.29 01:58 Boo9797 My subclavian vein is narrowed between my first rib and clavicle. Is my lipoma causing my venous TOS ? Help me locate exactly where the lipoma is and if it’s causing my compression. I’m at risk of a blood clot and possibly losing my rib in surgery...

I am 24/F 5,0 110 pounds
My subclavian vein is narrowed and is completely compressed and blocking blood flow & I am risk of a blood clot. My subclavian vein is narrowed between the first rib and clavicle.. However I just found out that I have a huge lipoma in my chest wall & am wondering if that’s what’s causing my compression by pushing on my nerves etc. This is what it says “ there is a moderate size lipoma anterior to the inferior aspect of the left specula , superficial of chest wall musculature and deep to the superior aspect of the latissimus .”..... please help me as I am awaiting seeing a TOS specialist. I am unable to ask her yet and am really hoping this huge lipoma is the reason for the compression.

2021.11.29 01:58 Stabbingi I feel like I'm becoming my das

Probably this past year plus some months I feel like ive become the emotionally unstable angry people my dad is, it started not long after I got out of an abusive relationship+moved out of parents then started spiraling more after I let my friend stay with me and he turned out to be a total dick face (trashed my apartment, ate all my food, tripled my electric bill, then threatened me and my home when I finally got him out).
I feel like I just attract a constant flow of toxic people in my life, the only good person I have in my life is my recent ex (started dating after the abusive one..bad idea I know, he realized I wasn't ready for a relationship so we went bk to being stayed friends). I feel like a terrible influence in his life though, I've gotten snippy with him twice and both times just float around in my head all the time and I feel so guilty about it even though he tells me he's forgotten. I feel like a bad friend all the time.
I think I'm developing anger issues which everytime it happens I feel just like my parents and I just want to cry. I can hold my temper with other people around, even in arguments with people I'm pretty level headed. Unless it's with my dad, usually I get snarky with him but end up crying in the end as he just cusses me out and screams at me to stop crying. It's mostly when I'm alone, which is pretty much all the time except work n hanging out with my friends since I live alone with my 2 dogs, I feel constantly on edge and the littlest things set me off. I feel bad because I end up yelling at my dogs alot becauseI just feel so on edge; usually its to stop barking, running around the apartment, stop begging, follow right behind me 24/7..I can't back up w/o nearly falling over them every time, or have an accident. They always look so scared and upset..just big sad eyes as they cower. It reminds me so much of when my dad would discipline the family dogs, although he was worse, he would scream so loud the walls shook and usually grab them and drag them acrossed the floor. When I still lived at home he grabbed my dog by the neck, picked him up, screamed in his face, then slammed him on the ground, all because he got in a fight with my mom's dog over food..mind you my mom's dog started it trying to steal His food. I always felt so sick everytime he did it, but there's nothing I could've done. I'd yell at him and try to grab the dog away if I can but my dad's alot bigger n stronger then me and isn't shy to doing the same stuff to me as he does to the dogs. It feels weird too because I used to be the safe haven for our family dogs.. everytime my dad was upset they'd all come running to me, but now I just feel like the bad guy all the time.
Everytime I get mad now I feel like I just want to cry or I just do straight up cry, I don't want to be like them. I don't know how to control my anger either, I try to take a few breaths and back away but then my dogs start crowding me more or barking at me and I end up screaming. I can't even leave the room because they'll follow or if I close the door they'll bark and cry which..isn't good for calming down at all. My closest friend/ex who's over often can pick up up when I'm getting overwhelmed or frustrated n will usually take the dogs outside or distract them, I also have someone to talk to when I'm upset, which all around just helps alot. I can't always have him there though so I'm just feeling lost. :/
This whole year has been such a shit show all around ugh I'm sorry this is so brain is all over.
I'm typing this after 1 of my dogs came over n peed right on my foot well we were playing fetch inside. Which led to me yelling and pointing at the pee then going and standing in the snow well I cried for yelling at him well he finished peeing then sitting on the floor a blubbering mess as I cleaned the pee off the carpet. It was my fault he even peed, he was last out like 4 hrs ago at that point us he'd been running around all excited and goldens tend to have excited bladders...

2021.11.29 01:58 hellokitty74 Excorsised Holy Water

Hi Priests,
I am atempting to get some water and salt blessed in the traditional Latin Rite where there is an prayer of exorsism said. However the priest that I have approached has said that they would not do this due to Vatican II replacing this rite with a simple blessing.
Is this correct? Any infortmation is much appreciated.

2021.11.29 01:58 varuneco Cake help for an amazing colleague

Cake help for an amazing colleague I have a colleague that I simply adore. He loves gaming and design. I am looking for some nice cake designs to request a custom cake for him on his birthday which is next week. Can you guys please share some ideas? I'm thinking of a Mario-themed cake since I have seen him wearing a Mario tee once. Not sure though. Will it seem childish?
Maybe something related to his job (graphic design)?
We are also creating an animated happy birthday card for him on Send Wish Online. Since we are spending on cake, we will be designing the ecard for free.
All suggestions welcome!
