R. E. C. and ninety two point one FM I'm glad Lewis you're listening ground zero Dave L. is with us tonight at ground zero talking about big foot course big put making an appearance on traffic cams in the Pacific Northwest now and certainly some interesting footage is compatible probably to the given Patterson film especially one particular image was released by the Washington department transportation of a big foot walking on a mountain pass being picked up by a traffic jam and and they were talking about what kind of thing scientists are looking for when you produce hair samples you gave us an idea because you always hear the you know the submit hair samples we always have the story well they're a lot like deer or they're like elk a rabbit or whatever and I you never get what they're looking for because you know it's like it's like you know well I've got big foot hair will okay how you gonna tell if it's a big for their weapons is something that's normal like I I was talking earlier about how they discovered that the yeti was sort of a hybrid bearer that is doesn't look anything like the Tibetan bears with something like the Himalayan bears but it walks upright if you look more like a hominid in looks like a bear and I thought well maybe if they discovered that yet he's are like that maybe big for like that how would they be able to look at some DNA differences are strange differences with the big fort how they determine it and another thing too is that look like for example you here's stats samples they say well I got scat samples so they're if they're that analyzing scat are the analyzing dietary habits of of the creature are there certain enzymes that would be produced it would be different from a regular animal what are we looking for their well okay let's start with scat scat has a very short shelf life for being able to collect any viable DNA it's almost like you have to be right under the you're collecting it is they they poop because the enzymes once they're exposed to the elements they could die off quickly so finding a DNA and a stool sample scat sample is almost next to impossible however there are certain things and like you said what is the diet of the of the crater and also are there you know specific things within this tool works got sample that reflect it's the way it digests food so if it digest food like a bare it's probably a bear if I digest like a human or has you know certain forms are certain things that we have within our skeptical then it becomes a little bit more you know something worthy of of discussion however most people don't go to that that link you know collecting of us got sample is one of the the least things that I'd be interested in how many do I just I just know that's one of the things they do collect and I one of the reasons why the skookum casted comes to mind where they had the back and the buttocks of a of a big foot to the cast of the mud and they were saying that the waiting what attracted is they would use like dole fruit that fruit left out forty beat the fruit and then it laid back in the mud and they got the cast of this big foot right but that was that's why I was asking about the scat was because what are we looking at for diet here are big foot Sasquatch omnivores or they what what do they eat mostly I yeah I'm pretty sure that they are omnivores I bet still in the speculation game we don't have a septic to actually analyze what their their dietary preferences are but it would just make sense that they would be more like a bear as far as the the diet goes when you know they eat both plants and animals for specific reasons and specific needs I certainly would have fish in L. are there there there's another question to what about bone abnormalities because I I remember back during investigations when I was younger bed they're actually bone Abner out abnormalities and some of the foot cast where you'd see that big ad that Sasquatch big foot can can they they actually get arthritic there are there are the big get the same type of bone disorders that we get I think your wrist hi am I may be wrong but correct me please the boss bird track yes worry though that definite abnormality and that was attributed to more likely a broken foot then a arthritic scenario okay well yeah that that's what Grover Krantz I believe determined so she was able to take that bone structure however and pretty much make a solid case that this was not a human and not a hoax so because the bones were where they should be for supporting a creature of this particular weight and size well see the thing is most interesting about deformities in feed and certain things but are normally talked about with big foot is that you can always tell if something's being fake because as they they don't go into detail but we look at something like the Patterson given film where you have a you know a big foot with harasses or you have you like the skookum cast you have the actual back and buttocks of a big foot the anatomy and much of the things that we as humans care about would be the same things we look into a for studying a creature that may be similar to us such as the Sasquatch and that's why I think it's fast for you thought we talk about this David Ellis was tonight eight.

"American Academy off demolished recommends by the time you're forty if you've never had an eye him to get one. It's these subtle changes. Can even start these signs. We can see on exam. You may not notice anything wrong with your vision. Like like Europe patient who had twenty twenty vision, which we considered to be pretty good, right? However with the loss of the side vision, that's a lot of vision that you can lose before you even notice it and even if you have twenty twenty vision. You may not be able to get your driver's license. If you have a lot of side vision loss so best to catch this early. So that we can do something about it. So if you haven't had an eye exam and around in your forties or over getting that baseline exam is a good idea. Not only to check for glaucoma but for other conditions. All right, like cataracts macular degeneration, which we can actually see on exam, and you may not even notice that you have it. So other things that people ask us about glaucoma is can anything be done to fix that vision loss? You know, we we have a lot of patients who come in. We diagnosed with glaucoma they've already lost some of that side vision. And they wanna know if you if you start trading it will that improve over time, right and. And. The the pardon me. The short answer is unfortunately, not. And that's why we actually really feel that you screening eye exams and seeing people early running these tests this laborious as they can be sometimes to to sit there and take the test, and it it is a really good idea. Because for instance, something like cataract if your vision gets bad from cataract I've seen Dr Riyadh Dr Torah juice, doing amazing cataract surgery work, and I've spent time quite a bit of time in doing cataracts myself, you can improve vision from almost nothing back to full vision. A lot of times it's just a miracle almost and it's such a privilege to be part of that to return site because that's sort of like taking the lens out of your camera and putting a new lens in this this clearer and can get a better, focus glaucoma is more. Like, it's kind of the wiring system of the eye. And it's the way I think of it. It's it's. It's everything between the I were you receive the light and the brain where you process that light. And so you can have a perfectly healthy I perfectly healthy brain by glaucoma hits that passageway in between. And essentially if you can't get the light signal from the of the brain, you can't see the cable is broken. Yeah. You can't send the message to your brain. Or it's it's going to be an inadequate message. So once that damage is done since it is nerve tissue. Unfortunately, it doesn't regenerate reversible damage, and so the earlier we catch it the more we can slow it down. But if you wait like the gentleman, I talked about until you have just those little islands of vision laughed. That's the best you'll ever have, unfortunately. And at that point, we we really have to go full court press all how to try to stop any further loss. But it's just such a better idea to stay ahead of it. And to you know, if you treat it early you can prevent yourself from having to get to some of the more advanced treatments for glaucoma, and there are certainly people who've lost all of their vision from glaucoma and gone entirely blind. The good news is most forms glaucoma slow. But it doesn't mean that they might not catch up with your eventually. And so again, it's it's good to get in and get screened. Entertainment screening, I guess tests that we do in the office. You know, we all test your vision, we check your eye pressure. Of course, the pressure is one of the vital signs of the is something we always check in our patients, even.

"In some way that can certainly have an impact on the vision and the quality of the vision. So if you have. If you have a dry and the surface of the is rough or irregular as a result that's gonna lead to blurred vision dry typically doesn't lead to consistently blurred vision unless it's fairly severe. But what it does do is it leads to intermittent deploring of the vision is little dry and the moisture layer of the tear film is not what it should be. Oftentimes, you may notice that you read for a little while and you see, okay. And then the vision starts to get blurred. This is often a sign of dryness of the surface of the eye. So that's something also that caused can cause some blurring of the vision. So as we get older there, a number of additional things that we look for and think about of course, these can affect people of any age, but they're more common as you get older. So we talked about cataract cataracts cloudy lens in the I it's common as you get older, it's a normal aging change in the land. So everyone eventually is going to develop a cataract if they live long enough. So he may develop a cataract in your fifties or sixties, which is less common or you may. Them in your seventies and eighties, which is more common. Some people don't have significant cataracts tell they're in their nineties, but everyone sooner or later develops a little cataract. So the cataract is a cloudy lens at block some of the like getting into the I can range from mild vision loss to severe vision loss, a very advanced cataract can lead to complete vision loss or essentially blindness or both eyes. But fortunately, it's reversible. Blindness cataracts can be treated at any stage in their development. They're easier to treat when they're a little bit less advanced so more advanced cataracts, a little bit more difficult to treat little higher risk of complications. But the cataract can be treated at any.
