Pulmonary Atresia with Intact Ventricular Septum.
Kids today are a bunch of sissies. Because I heard it directly on two occasions in the past week. Last Thursday, I had a beer and a plate of tacos with two of my teaching mentors, Jim and Ed. These guys are role models for me, as they each represent the Platonic ideal of a Renaissance Man.
Each worked in the Taos school system for years, in various capacities, and each is equally comfortable out of doors. Even as age catches up with them. The guys both reported that previous incarnations, when they were younger, felt like something of a dream at this stage in life.
Jim has broken himself twice in the last few years: As for Ed, he once told me about the time he was invited into a ceremony at the Picuris Pueblo, and in order to properly perform the dance, he had to cut a stone into his flesh, twist it until it embedded in his chest, and leave the wound for the duration of the ceremony.
As they traded stories of their previous exploits, I admitted that except for a summer of irrigation back inI avoided ranch work out here to the best of my abilities. They smiled, a touch condescendingly, as I told them about my Kung Fu practice, as it seemed like a silly hobby, compared with chopping your own wood, or fixing an underperforming well.
I was soft, not weak. He pinned me to the wall with only a finger, and watching him move around an opponent was like water flowing in an irrigation ditch. But sure enough, in a room with at least 4 Millennials in it, not me, of course, Sigong managed to mock that generation at least three times.
Like I said at the outset, kids are sissies, these days. It it appropriate to mourn the loss a lifestyle that has brought the planet to the brink of peril?
And this book, in particular, presents really strong portraits, in the traditional sense. These pictures are super-sharp, with solid lighting, tonal range, and compositions. There are lots of craggy faces, true, but the book was sure to include women, as well as men, and the clothing here seems pretty authentic to the contemporary Cowboy west, rather than hinting at Hollywood stylists, just outside the frame, outfitting folks in fake-garb meant to evoke Buffalo Bill and such.
Ironically, the allure of the romantic lifestyle has made ranches play-things for the super-rich, and allowed big ranches to be broken into small pieces for McMansions to pop up. The simulacrum of the working ranch being more appropriate for the 21st Century.
Of course, this is always delivered as elegy, in books like this. Watching the past disappear is sad, and automatically evokes nostalgia. And as I wrote at the beginning of this column, smart, old, tough guys are easy to appreciate.
Call it the Clint Eastwood effect.
But our obsession with eating cows is killing our planet. If there are less ranches, and less cows, or if Millennials decide to be vegetarians to try to under-consume our way out of this mess, who can blame them?
As long as there are old folks and young folks, this narrative will play out again and again. Sorry, I know it was a bit bleak today. Have a good weekend.The Art of the Personal Project is a crucial element to let potential buyers see how you think creatively on your own.

Baseball players are big influences on children and teenagers which could cause even more steroid use because of major league baseball players. Even though many people agree with famous baseball athletes using steroids being in the Baseball Hall of Fame, other people disagree for many reasons because steroids are an illegal drug and the use .
Baseball is a bat-and-ball game played between two opposing teams who take turns batting and fielding. The game proceeds when a player on the fielding team, called the pitcher, throws a ball which a player on the batting team tries to hit with a bat. The objectives of the offensive team (batting team) are to hit the ball into the field of play, and to run the bases—having its runners advance.
How can steroid use be limited in all sports (or one in particular)? Should college athletes be paid? How can colleges better handle the combination of education, athletics, and business?
