Weathering: stress and heart disease in African American women living in Chicago. https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/16/ “Researchers have suggested that lifelong chronic and cumulative exposure to social and economic stressors is associated with early onset of chronic illness in African American women.”
Trace the history of the eugenics movement in the US, and discover how the belief in ideal genetics led to forced sterilizations. — Since Ancient Greece, humans have controlled populations via reproduction, retaining some traits and removing others. But in the 19th century, a new scientific movement dedicated to this endeavor emerged: eugenics. Scientists believed they could improve society by ensuring that only desirable traits were passed down. Alexandra Minna Stern and Natalie Lira detail the history of eugenics in the US. Lesson by Alexandra Minna Stern and Natalie Lira, directed by Héloïse Dorsan-Rachet.

I am glad that TED-Ed did a short informative video on genealogical DNA tests, this is basic information that everyone needs to know about these kind of DNA tests, so that people will know what these tests can and can not tell you about your ancestry et cetera.
I had at least two somewhat long and interesting dreams last night but I barely remember them, the first dream took place during the day in maybe a fictional version of the city of D, and my uncle CE was in one part of the dream that I can not remember that I think involved me talking to him and maybe helping him with something.
Later in the dream I was with maybe my brother GC, maybe an unknown man, and maybe an unknown woman; and we were supposed to do a list of ten certain things in a certain order/way to prevent/stop something from happening in the future (maybe one or more people and/or entities, possibly from the future, told us this and gave us the list of ten things), I can not remember the details, but I think that something very bad was going to happen in the future if we did not stop it.
The other night I remembered part of a dream that I was not in, until the end of the dream and even then I was not myself.
I do not remember the beginning of the dream, all I remember is seeing things from the view of a camera person, and a teenager was outside of a house that looked just like my grandfather’s house.
The teenager was a young man who looked like one of the main characters from I-Carly+A Homunculi from Full Metal Alchemist; it seemed that he was part human and part something else.
One of his arms and maybe a few other parts of his body were not human, I think he was made along with some other teenagers by some scientists, to be used as soldiers/guards/assassins.
I think some politician had paid the scientist to build him a private army of genetically engineered creatures and humans/whatever, and this politician was going to try to take over a country.
The teenager seemed to be the main character of the dream, and he had escaped from the place where he was made, trained, & lived.
I think he was either trying to help others escape and/or was trying to kill the politician that was behind the whole thing.
I think the politician’s house was the house that looked like my grandfather’s house, and the teenager had just arrived at this house.
Right before the teenager had arrived at the house, the politician & one of his human/whatever guards were talking, and then the politician left the house.
As the teenager was looking around the yard, the human/whatever guard from earlier saw him, and ran over to talk to him.
The guard looked like he was maybe the age of a senior in high school, and he recognized the teenager.
They both knew each other from the place the teenager had escaped from, and the guard was surprised to see him.
The guard told the teenager that he should not be there, but that he would not bother him as long as he did not cause any trouble.
He also asked him why did he escape, and what was he going to do now.
The teenager said that he did not feel like being a slave and that he did not know what he was going to do now exactly, but he was close to deciding.
The teenager asked the guard what was he doing there, and the guard told him that he was guarding this house for the politician; he said that one day the politician came looking for guards for his house and so he volunteered.
The teenager asked him why would he work for the person that enslaved him, and the guard said because he had nothing else better to do.
I think the teenager said that he wanted to end the experiments and the enslavement of others like them, and so the guard gave him some valuable information.
He told the teenager where the politician had gone, but he told the teenager that he would not go there to help him; so the teenager thanked him and left to find the politician.
The politician was at some small one story building with some guards that looked liked genetically engineered smaller versions of some dinosaurs or something.
I think the politician was having some private meetings with some people, and so the teenager snuck into the building but somehow the politician knew that he was coming; it is possible that the guard at the house had warned him, but I am not sure, there could have been hidden cameras or something.
When the teenager came into the building, the politician started talking to him over a speaker system that was built into the building, and lured him to a room.
The teenager went inside expecting to see the politician, but no one was in there, so it was a trap.
The politician was talking and laughing over the speaker system, and the teenager tried to crawl around the table as the creäture looked for him; for some strange reason I think I was the teenager now.
I kept looked through holes under the table trying to see which direction the creäture was walking so I could avoid it, but I made a wrong move and it saw me.
So I stood up next to a window, if I needed to jump out of it, and then the creäture ran at me.
Instead of jumping out of the window, I decided to move out-of-the-way, and let the creäture fall out of the window; so I did that and it worked, and for some strange reason the creäture fell like we were in a tall building & it died, even though the building really was only one story.
The politician must have thought that I was dead, so he came into the room alone with no guards, but he did have a pistol just in case.
He saw me and started shooting, so I ducked behind the table until he needed to re-load his gun.
While he was trying to re-load his gun, I ran over to him and broke his neck, which killed him and I started to drag his body toward the window hoping to escape with his body before his guards got to me.
I worried that his scientists would bring him back to life or something, so I was going to try to bring his body so I could destroy as much of it as possible, and hide the rest so that the scientists could not get his DNA to clone him or something.
I heard a large group of guards coming as I climbed through the window with the body, and I hoped that some one would come & help me.
Suddenly I heard a large group of people outside running toward the building like they had come to help me, and I my guess was that the guard at the house had released some others like us & they had come to help me stop the politician & his plans of conquest.
The politicians guards then stopped chasing after me and ran to fight the group that had come to help me, but I woke up.
March 29, 2009
Last night I only remembered a few pieces of my last dream, which took place at a school.
I was in a class with a lot of my classmates from high school, and it felt like we were in a school that was like the junior high school & high school joined.
I think we had class, and then the teacher left, to give us a break, so everyone started talking.
Next I remember a group of men that looked almost liked a S.W.A.T team came running into the school with submachine guns like they were looking for some one.
My two little brothers D&D were on their way to my class room and saw the men with guns, so they tried to run, but the men started shooting at them & shot one of them.
My other brother ran into our class room, and I ran into the hallway shocked, confused, angry, scared, and ready to try to save my little brother.
I picked up my little brother and brought him into the classroom, and everyone was afraid & shocked.
I locked the doors and told the class to get ready to run out of the door that led to another hallway, once I give the signal.
I then tied a shirt or something around my little brother to stop the bleeding, and I asked some people to carry my little brother & I told everyone to get by the exit door & wait for my signal.
The man who shot my little brother tried to open the locked door, while the other men tried to make sure the other areas of the hallway were clear, the man seemed a bit shocked that he had shot a little kid; but it seemed like he was willing to do it again possibly & that their group would kill the witnesses.
I decided to run into the hallway to kill the man and take his gun, while the rest of my class would run through the exit door that led to another part of the building.
I grabbed a pencil and burst the door open, which knocked the man back into a wall and he dropped his gun.
I then ran and stabbed him in the neck with the pencil before he could grab his backup gun or knife, and I front kicked him so that he would fall & I told my class to run.
I grabbed his sub-machine gun and shot him in the head, since he had body armor on, and I shot at the other men as they ran toward me to help the man, which made them duck for cover.
I then ran back into the classroom, locked the door again, and ran to follow my class.
I knew this would give us enough time to hopefully escape and then I ran across the building with my class, trying to protect them as we escaped, but I woke up.
