Just Another Thought at Mars Hill – “You” Take it and send that boy off to die.
Today at Mars Hill


Just Another Thought at Mars Hill – “You” Take it and send that boy off to die.

They say it is the glory of the crown to conceal a matter but

The delight of the prudent to search them out.

Let's read this from Mars Hill today.

A great American poet and singer wrote in the late nineteen sixties song.

“Rockets, moon shots Spend it on the have nots
Money, we make it, before we see it "you" take it”

Is the money here really taken or it was given to the “you”.

Who is the “you” in this text today, the Professional Ball Club Owners, the Hedge Fund Managers, the Policeman, your Landlords, the Employers or even Uncle Sam through those technocrats or powerful interest groups?

The writer goes on to say,
“Bills pile up sky high
Send that boy off to die”

Are these factors beyond the boy’s control?  Do you find answers in getting back from the “you” or it should just be the way it is? Some will say No, it’s a capitalistic world, join the “You”, get what is your share. You have one life to live, learn the way of “you” as much as you can. Others say No, it is a Jungle out there. Do not give up an inch, fight like hell, be a winner, be smart, by all means necessary, hold the power or fight the powers that be till you have all the ground.

No chance cries the young man and off he goes to die.

A Study on Asthma and Residence in Inner Cities
By Elizabeth C.Matsui MD,

Although it is thought that inner-city areas have a high burden of asthma, the prevalence of asthma in inner cities across the United States is not known.

We sought to estimate the prevalence of current asthma in US children living in inner-city and non–inner-city areas and to examine whether urban residence, poverty, or race/ethnicity are the main drivers of asthma disparities.

The National Health Interview Survey 2009-2011 was linked by census tract to data from the US Census and the National Center for Health Statistics. Multivariate logistic regression models adjusted for sex; age; race/ethnicity; residence in an urban, suburban, medium metro, or small metro/rural area; poverty; and birth outside the United States, with current asthma and asthma morbidity as outcome variables. Inner-city areas were defined as urban areas with 20% or more of households at below the poverty line.

We included 23,065 children living in 5,853 census tracts. The prevalence of current asthma was 12.9% in inner-city and 10.6% in non–inner-city areas, but this difference was not significant after adjusting for race/ethnicity, region, age, and sex. In fully adjusted models black race, Puerto Rican ethnicity, and lower household income but not residence in poor or urban areas were independent risk factors for current asthma. Household poverty increased the risk of asthma among non-Hispanics and Puerto Ricans but not among other Hispanics. Associations with asthma morbidity were very similar to those with prevalent asthma.

Although the prevalence of asthma is high in some inner-city areas, this is largely explained by demographic factors and not by living in an urban neighborhood.
