Out of the Blue

Happy Pi Day!

Office workers 'risk blood clots'. "The researchers found a third of patients admitted to hospital with deep vein thrombosis (DVT) were office workers who spent hours at a computer." Ruh-roh, I have bad habits in this regard… I need to get up and move around more. I'm guessing some of you do too.

Pi Links! Thanks Ant.

whew- I was beginning to think DVT was a farse. What has been called "economy class syndrome" because it often occurs in people who take long plane rides, recently made news when Dick Cheney got it during one of his overseas trips.

We were talking about it one night when we got together after the obsrevatory closed and I was saying why is it that you only hear about it in people who fly, and NOT in couch potatoes or people who work in offices? And since it seemed to be only plane related and not activity related I doubted its legitimacy. Now its all good, the drug cartels can start pushing the ads for it on TV without having to invent the disease first.
