Four things happen before a Heart Attack.

Tom's Journal.

I figured that it was about time that I shared something special to help my fellow neighbors/ friends, who breeze by my humble time slot/ Blog here....TOM'S JOURNAL.
   Since heart disease and strokes run in my German-American family tree, I feel that I KNOW how I am going to die, since I quit  smoking in 1972, and driving my beloved motorcycles and flying in Army helicopters every day... LOL !     Wise pastors and friends have told me that God must have REALLY LOVED ME to have spared me from an early death so many times, but at the same time, some have told me that 'I must have HAD a death wish' -- for getting into so many accidents in my life of 64 years....Ha!  Perhaps I was fool hardy when I was young, or didn't know my limitations.  It's not that I hate life -- but with all the wickedness and gross sin in the world, I wish to be in heaven with the Lord Jesus Christ, my Saviour.  I have tried hard to explain some of this combat/ war/ strife to my pretty wife, Terri M. Schuckman, but she is a lady and a civilian.  On the other hand, I will never comprehend child birth [and don't want to, either]. 

Anyway,  I hope that ya'll  [sic   --"you all"] can benefit from this info, and share it.  My wife is at her son, Matt's graduation today [Master's Degree, I think], but I am not walking so good lately, and short of breathe.   I hope to be at church in the morning  {Family Baptist church, in Iron Mountain, MI --with the good pastor Kevin Sullivan}    ---phone 906-774-8239,     ------ and leave our mighty Rottweiler, Deuce, to guard the house, and we have a great "Neighborhood Watch" on steroids, where we live, with a fine net work of neighbors, all deer hunters, and "Good Old Boys."  I don't have much to steal anyway...  just a poor old retired Chrysler worker/ welder, with a few extra cans of beans, and the KJV Bible [please check out:].     

Warm Regards,
Tommy Schuckman

I crewed [gunner] on the "slicks" that transported Infantry in and out of the LZ's [Landing Zones] and took the fight to the enemy..  the dirty, dangerous work that the Infantry did.  That was my job a hundred years ago...  or so it seems.

Heaven doesn't want us;
Hell is afraid we'll take over...


Solar flares 2013: biggest flare storm of the year may affect earth

Filed under: Business |
Solar flares have become very active in the year 2013. Meanwhile the biggest solar storm of the year may affect earth in the days to come
A fourth major sun flare within 48 hours was unleashed by a single sunspot giving birth to a solar storm, categorized at Class X flare the most powerful type, heading towards earth. The storm that erupted on Tuesday has hurled a massive cloud of charged particles out into space at millions of miles an hour.
Though the storm is not expected to pose any direct threat to the earth or the earthlings it might cause temporarily disruption of GPS navigation, satellite communications and power grids. Even though the flare was incredibly powerful, it was weakest of the four rapid-fire X flares, clocking in at X1.2. The previous three registered as X1.7, X2.8 and X3.2 flares, respectively. Those three occurred while the Sunspot AR1748, about twice the size of Earth and currently located on the sun’s extreme left side, was facing away from Earth, however, so they did not affect our planet.
The strong solar flares are basically categorized in three sections, with C being the weakest, M intermediate and X the most powerful. X-class flares can cause long-lasting radiation storms in Earth’s upper atmosphere and trigger radio blackouts. M flares can cause brief radio blackouts in the Polar Regions and occasional minor radiation storms, while C flares have few noticeable consequences. Strong solar flares can also supercharge Earth’s auroras, creating dazzling northern lights displays.
The frequent solar flares are being caused due to the sun being in an active period of its 11-year solar weather cycle which is expected to reach peak activity later this year. The current cycle, known as Solar Cycle 24, began in 2008. It may be mentioned that the scientists have been tracking sunspots, solar flares and other space weather events since they were first discovered in 1843.
According to solar astrophysicist C. Alex Young at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, the sunspot will likely be facing Earth by this weekend. He said: “In a couple of days, it will be far enough onto the disk that any CMEs that we got would probably have some impact on Earth.”
Astronomer Tony Phillips wrote on, a website that tracks skywatching and space weather events: “Space weather forecasters with the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmosperic Administration “estimate a 40 percent chance of polar geomagnetic storms when the cloud arrives. High-latitude skywatchers should be alert for auroras tonight.”

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) approved sulfoxaflor, a pesticide the agency admits is toxic to bees. The bee population has already been decimated by a host of neonicotinoid pesticides, which work in much the same way as sulfoxaflor. That’s bad news for food crops. According to a United Nations report, of the 100 crop species that supply 90 percent of the world's food, bees pollina...te more than 70 percent.

But don’t worry. The EPA is requiring anyone using sulfoxaflor to notify “known” beekeepers within one mile of the treatment area 48 hours before they spray the pesticide. So the beekeepers can move their hives. The “known” beekeepers, that is. Can anyone say “loophole?”

These 4 Things Happen Right Before a Heart Attack
By S.A. Nickerson
Every year, approximately 785,000 Americans suffer a first heart attack. And 470,000 who've already had one or more heart attacks have another one. The scary thing is that 25 percent of ALL heart attacks happen "silently," without clear or obvious symptoms.
Even when symptoms occur, they can be so mild or vague, most people don't even realize it's heart-related (unless they are made aware). Four things in particular are the most sinister signs of a silent heart attack.
These four things are the focus of a recent video presentation by renowned cardiovascular expert Dr. Chauncey Crandall: 4 Things You'll Feel Right Before a Heart Attack: A Special Newsmax Heart Health Report.
According to Dr. Crandall, the reason silent heart attacks go untreated is because people don't even notice the symptoms, so he created a special video presentation to show the four things to look for that may be a silent warning — before it's too late to intervene and survive the damage.

Timing is the most critical factor for survival. Statistics show a clear link between delay in treatment and disability or death — the amount of time that elapses between the first sign of symptoms and receiving care.
That's why knowing what to look for in terms of symptoms is critical, especially when they're the kind that most people don't think to associate with a heart attack — like the four things in Dr. Crandall's video, 4 Things You'll Feel Right Before a Heart Attack: A Special Newsmax Heart Health Report.
Originally developed as an educational tool, this video quickly went viral, surpassing five million viewers in just a few short months.
Newsmax Health Publisher Travis Davis attributes the viral sensation to the fact that the content hits close to home for so many Americans. According to Davis, "Dr. Crandall tells the real-life story of a 'widow-maker' heart attack that did not have to happen. It's scary but eye-opening, because he outlines what could have been done to actually prevent this."
Dr. Crandall, chief of the cardiac transplant program at the esteemed Palm Beach Cardiovascular Clinic in Florida, practices on the front lines of interventional, vascular, and transplant cardiology. Years of experience have afforded him the chance to detect little-known warning signs and symptoms like the four he addresses.
"I think the real value in this presentation is the number of simple strategies he outlines to help prevent heart disease," says Davis, "strategies that many doctors just don't take the time to discuss with patients until they're already showing obvious symptoms of cardiovascular stress."
