People track when talkers say ‘uh’ to predict what comes next

Speakers tend to say ‘uh’ before uncommon words (‘uh… automobile’) rather than common words (‘car’). In a new eye-tracking study, researchers show that listeners use this information to predict an uncommon word upon hearing ‘uh.’ Moreover, when an ‘atypical’ speaker says ‘uh’ before common words (‘uh… car’), listeners learn to predict common words after ‘uh’ — but only with a native speaker.

How Much Do You Keep Track of Your Health Stats? (Plus, Kat’s Weird Health Chart!)

how much do you keep track of your health stats

My brother emailed me recently to tell me about a high triglyceride reading (because, he explained, “we share genetics and all,”) and I quickly reviewed all of my triglyceride levels since 2000, based on a chart I started keeping several years ago, as I mentioned in my post on how much I’m kind of obsessed with lists. Then I realized I’d never really shared my health chart and thought, hey, maybe the readers would like to have their own health chart… or maybe they have a better way of tracking health stats — so let’s discuss. Here are the Qs: How much do you keep track of health stats, like all those numbers you get from doctor’s visits (cholesterol, triglycerides, blood pressure, etc)? What level of trust do you have in your doctors to tell you when things are wrong? If you’ve got a big role in someone’s medical care where they have Issues (whether it be yourself, an aging parent or a kiddo) how do you keep track of everything?

I should note that my trust in the medical establishment is severely eroded after I had a pretty horrible patient/customer experience with my first son’s birth — we both came out of it ok but a) I didn’t see my carefully-vetted OB/GYN for the entire time I was in the hospital (despite the fact that her office was across the street and she was even in the hospital for rounds during at least one of the days), b) not being “attached” to a doctor meant that we kind of got totally forgotten about at the hospital, which stunk for reasons I went into more when telling J’s birth story. (I’m really grateful that medically we were both OK, but the whole experience left me really angry with my former doctor, who I haven’t spoken to since the phone call where she told me to head to the hospital.) But my jaded lesson after all that is that I want to be able to assess my own medical issues without expecting/hoping a doctor to go above and beyond and catch something that isn’t obvious. (Ditto for my kids and our aging parents when the time comes for my husband, brother or myself to be more involved in their care.) It isn’t that I don’t trust that they’re competent professionals — but I tend to believe that they’re not your buddy, they’re not “looking out for you” and if you don’t ask them about something or push to be taken seriously the issue might not be found. (Of course there’s a ton of additional reading to be done out there about how doctors don’t listen to women and downplay their health concerns — see these articles in The New York Times and The Atlantic to get you started.) (Just to be tooootally clear here, I am not suggesting that this health chart is any kind of substitute for medical care — I’m just saying I use this chart to track the data I get from the doctor and raise questions if I see disturbing trends over time.) 

Kat's weird health chart to track health stats

Anyway: this is my weird little Excel health chart (you can click the screencapture above to see the chart bigger, or download the Excel doc here if you’d like it for yourself; obviously I’ve removed my own medical data).  The rows are the years, the columns are the various stats I’m tracking; there are comments in each column header for what the stats “should be,” again based on that Real Simple article.  I basically add one line each year and put whatever numbers I get into that row on the chart. The columns are health stats I’m tracking based on an old Real Simple article — I don’t get all of the numbers every year but it is interesting to see how things have changed as I’ve gotten older. I tend to be pretty healthy so personally I just jot a few things down in the Notes column, like if I took any prescription drugs for a limited time (like antiobiotics after strep), if I had any major issues (like tearing my ACL/reconstructing it a few years ago) or if I see something as “the beginning of an issue” (like seeing an orthopedic surgeon last year for what I worried was carpal tunnel and finding out NOPE, it’s just arthritis in my thumb, and getting my first cortisone shot… yay…). 

How about you guys — do you keep track of any of your own health data like blood pressure, triglycerides, etc? (Anyone have any fun apps?) What other little things do you do to educate and empower yourself as a patient?

The Weekend Reset: A great food hack, a new Beck track and why the internet is wack.

It’s Friday. Looking for something to switch up your weekend, or to give you an excuse to relax a little? That’s what the Weekend Reset is for. Each week contributor Tim Johnstone pulls together five things to get your weekend started. Could be something to read or watch, something to eat or listen to, or even something to do. Enjoy the weekend fellas.

 

READ: The Internet of all things is fake, mostly.

https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/world-news/bizarre-click-farm-10000-phones-10419403

But you probably already guessed that? This explains how this comes to be. And it is as depressing as you might imagine. We are nearing the point where there are more bots than actual people on the web and that is where things like Skynet catch up with us. Fascinating (and depressing) stuff. Anytime I hear about how many streams a band has, or video views, I understand that those numbers are mostly meaningless. It’s all about cheating money out of people.

 

WATCH: Because sometimes Jenga just isn’t enough fun…

First things first: I am still catching up on movies released last year. And occasionally I end up watching something with friends I had skipped for whatever reason. Game Night is one of those movies. It had surfaced on streaming services recently and I finally got around to watching it the other night. I ended up watching it again the next day. If you have ever done game nights with your crew then this is immediately relatable. Until it isn’t. This is a clever, funny, fast paced movie that really works because the acting ensemble shines (Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams are so good here) and the characters are genuine. And yes, sometimes you will have to rewind things just to catch lines that you missed. It’s worth it.

 

EAT: An overnight one-pot chicken to eat off all week.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/voraciously/wp/2019/01/18/overnight-chicken-in-a-pot-has-become-the-savior-of-our-weeknight-cooking/?utm_term=.c5716a65748f

Yes, there is the multi-paragraph origin tale before you get to the helpful parts. And yes, you are looking at a picture of how you should plan meals around said chicken. Ultimately, it is literally a bird in a pot. Nonetheless, for myself, this is kind of a game changer. It makes it easier to get more out of the chicken, especially if you need protein for the week ahead. There’s that. And the fact that you get a broth out of the whole deal is kind of a big deal.

 

CREATE: Yeah, you can. This suggests you should.

https://jamesclear.com/make-more-art?fbclid=IwAR3-KNBF7HdibD9dqbzaAW5YFD4_QW3WdsL3R3iOYE2HbHIKY834E92fD_A

I have no doubt that this isn’t the sort of thing that will resonate with everyone. But, for many of you it might spark a change you’ve been thinking about or looking for. If nothing else, it serves as a reminder about the importance of art in our civilization.

 

LISTEN: This is not your grandfather’s Beck.

I’ve had this on repeat for a couple days now. This is not “Loser” Beck. It’s not “Up All Night” Beck. Or “Lost Cause” Beck. It’s a cover of an obscure 1982 b-side that would find a bigger audience via This Mortal Coil. And by bigger audience, I mean artsy introverted liberal arts majors who bought anything that came out on the 4AD record label. The This Mortal Coil version (which Beck pretty much replicates) remains one of my favorite songs from that era for reasons which are impossible for me to convey. It’s all hormones and melancholy. This song has been released as part of an upcoming collection of songs inspired by the Oscar nominated movie Roma, which is on Netflix.
