Here's another one for all the men out there (whether you're one of the king's or just a commoner).

Mood Swings in Men
“Mood swings in men are primarily a symptom of andropause, a hormone imbalance in men that usually occurs between the ages of 40 and 60,” explains Richard Giannotto, MD, a metabolic wellness physician in McLean, Va. This “irritable male syndrome,” as it’s often referred to, is the result of low levels of testosterone (low T) and high levels of the stress hormone cortisol, Giannotto says. “Resulting behaviors include anger, sarcasm, frustration, sadness, depression, being withdrawn, hostile, and/or anxious, and dissatisfaction,” adds Giannotto. Low energy can also be a problem with low T, as well as low desire.
Low testosterone in men can also mimic symptoms of low T and menopause in women. “I have some patients with low T who describe hot flashes, night sweats, and changing sleep patterns, which then result in sleep deprivation and more irritability,” says Damon Raskin, MD, a physician practicing internal medicine in Pacific Palisades, Calif.
No matter what the specific symptoms, Dr. Raskin says low testosterone in men is under-diagnosed. In fact, an estimated 13 million American men suffer from low testosterone, and 90 percent go untreated. “I see it all the time -- men come in and tell me they’re depressed, and they haven’t considered that their depression may be a symptom of low testosterone,” he says. “And in some cases, doctors themselves don’t consider low testosterone, and they treat the depression itself. But some studies show that up to one third of men who walk into primary care offices may have low testosterone, especially men over 40.”
... if you think you have symptoms of low T, see your doctor. “A lot of men, just by being men, don’t go to the doctor for anything,” Raskin says. “But in order to know for sure he has low testosterone, a man must be screened at the doctor’s office.” Raskin adds that the best time of the day for testosterone screening is in the morning. “You don’t have to have a fasting blood test, but a morning blood test will be a better test. In addition, be screened for possible secondary causes of low T or depression, including a pituitary tumor or other hormonal imbalances.”



It even affects firemen. But you have to join to read the article.

Firefighter Fitness: Low T and Cortisol: The Silent Killer
06/25/2013
By John Hofman Firefighters are often under a lot of stress, both physically and mentally. Stressful environments can increase inflammation in the body naturally, but it can also affect a firefighter's hormonal response. The hormone testosterone is associated with body fat and muscle mass in men and has beneficial effects with regards to the cardiovascular system. Any type of deficiency will lead to increased body fat, less muscle, and increased chance of disease. One study performed in the United Kingdom showed that men with heart disease die sooner if their testosterone levels are low. Another study found that low testosterone in men could increase the risk of developing Type ...

A Brief Moment in Time

They once who
were standing there
looking on
panoramic views
subsumed within
a Cenozoic Era

The ancients stood
awed by
intoxicated
feared everything
embraced by life
then stricken down

A brief moment
in time
a window to
it’s visitors
a glimpse beyond
the antiquated universe

The scent of crude
churning up
to permeate
like peat from bogs
of bygone
years

Cold and heat
by any means
held rapt
beyond philosophy
a basic simplicity
of man and beast

As witness
it now humbles me
yet bares the point
I shout out loud
a nameless
melancholia

walking on stilts the movie
aka Leaving Soon
the director's cut
get him a band-aid

sharp and focused details abound
my vision is acute
i seem to be walking on stilts
through time
i am greatly enlarged
overtopping giants
but really only sitting on a stool
having breakfast at the cinema cafe

i see the waitress
and she sees me
we each smile and mean it
she looks French today
with a black and white striped top
all you need is a beret
and i probably should order French toast
...but you're waffling, as usual, she notes
as she takes my order...
but chorizo scrambled English browns okay?
sure, got it
hey, she muses, nobody serves waffles much anymore
but the place at the other end of the street
and i went out into the street to smoke
and recalled when most cafes had waffles
and a grill not just a deli case with trifles
maybe the occasional mass-produced muffins
and there used not to be choices
paper or plastic
smoking or non
credit or debit
cash or check
room for cream
splenda or some other substitute
asiago or feta
wtf is asiago but a trumped-up ad man's idea, Jack?
sir, do you want to king-size that
jumbo mumbo burger a la bacon asiago Jack?
spinning around on my stool at the counter
i have dismounted from my stilts
and they lie propped in the corner
by the coat rack and ice machine

ah, the rarefied air of walking on stilts
able to view much but unable to view the future
the distance, sure, space-wise
but not tomorrow, time-wise
and my best guesses are seldom right
and more often wrong by far
it seems i only have eyes for the past
as well as a taste for a good repast
as many do who come to the cinema cafe
ah, the rarefied air of walking on stilts

aah, the rarefied air of a few layers of grease
covering some classic movie posters under glass
mounted under shelves filled with green glass
an old-timey hole-in-the-wall
where you like to meet a friend
maybe godforbid for the last time
--hey you never know remember Joe?--
outside the art deco
of the facade and the dated marquee
add luster to the bouquet
and aroma to the ambience
and your dog is welcome if he's on a leash
and of a pleasant demeanor
bienvenido al cinema cafe
this place is run placidly
amid the haste of the modern work-laden world
it has its own conventions
and ways of doing things
and making folks comfortable
like me being able to sit here
hypnotized by the interplay of the staff
if not reading some book
or ear hustling customers
--i can't help it of course--
as i have many times over eighteen years
and like most i find comfort
among people who know my name
and treat me almost like family
in case your order is to go
remember that
being here now is not the same as
a lot like having been here then
for a business lunch
a family brunch on the weekend
a leisurely ritual coffee for the early birds
a kind cup of water for some homeless streetie
an oasis in downtown
one of the world's many side stages
where all are players
bit part or lead or spear carrier
everyone gets equal billing
and V will amaze you with her math skills

prices are subject to change
no senior or group discounts
refills are free

[coda]
the times they are a-changin'
like a busy baby's diaper
but the newspaper of record
was never sold outside
in the antique vending machine on the corner
now there is only fake news anyway
so who cares not the elders on their iPhones
i see universal truths from on high
and recommend stilts for all

good day, and here are "some things to share"

you don't miss your water till your well runs dry
the road to a man's heart runs through his stomach
fairy shrimps will still be here after the fall of man
don't believe in fortune cookies

I Had Visine Bottles & I Had Visine Bottles

faining any interest in the records
those numbers, all important now
meant nothing way back when
let's just get this done with
We had barrels of Mexican mescaline
Gallons of Tequila & beer,
living on Lemons & limes,
scurvy pirates of stone that we were

was it climbed years ago?
 of course it was.
Probably decades ago.
That the thing now,
is to record every dimple or
30-foot chunk of stone
no longer having any restraint,
Posting, spraying about everything
Claiming everything is new, sit starts &
the "body-length problems"
is the problem.

We didn't record our stone travels
while stoned. They were extensive
We left no stone unturned.
We were starving, getting high,
 not in today's' pansy way,
Climbing by moonlight in
paisley, patchouli & microdot
 eating rocks full time.

now,
from then,
all for all its worth
My feet hurt


& too

a tribute

the one & only
the true
Frog was FROG
FROM RAY OLSEN'S GARAGE
Full Stop
BvB, Big Al, Gordo, & Me
it was those 3 that took me in
it was Craig Fry & that Evans guy
that took me to the super domes.
In the mix too, must have been
all those other guys, Richard, Yabo
Mike Paul, Coz, & Fishy too

Comfortable Shoes

Unexpected triggers
remind us of them
and we tell the stories
that we recall

Our woeful grief
common the thread
though some might think
they’ve heard it all

I thought I was strong
I would box and control
remorse and love’s curse
beyond death and the pain

But I’m just a child
and I check myself
in this human condition
I can yet but contain

I never wanted to be
that lost soul in the room
who never got over
their loved ones demise

But I’m only a human
with a heart that is soft
it’s my greatest strength
I now realize

Unexpected triggers
bring them close to our thoughts
I might bracket my grief
in the hustle and tide

But I cannot turn back
the hands of time
and these wounds to the heart
I won’t bother to hide

Pedestrian Fatalities in San Diego County Seventh-Highest in Nation: Study March/2018

You're supposed to be wary of gangbangers I know, but I wonder who kills more innocent civilians: drivers or bangers


For the second year in a row, pedestrian fatalities in the U.S. have reached numbers not seen in 25 years, and experts suspect smartphone and marijuana use could be to blame for the deadly trend, according to a new report.

San Diego County was ranked as having the seventh-highest number of pedestrian deaths in 2016 when compared to the rest of the country, according to the Governors Highway Safety Association (GHSA) report released Wednesday.


Law enforcement agencies typically don’t release gang territory maps because a global – and worse, erroneous – look at who claims what could cause chest-puffing and violence in the streets.

...
you won’t see an exhaustive map posted here. Instead, this March map from the County Probation Department gives a good overview of communities impacted by gangs. A Google search will give you an idea of street-level boundaries.
