Ankylosing spondylitis in the wrists, forearms, and spinal column

Note the fused wrist bones in the arms, and the abnormal protuberances, fusions, and cavities in the spine.

Ankylosing spondylitis (also known as Bechterew’s disease) is an inflammatory spondyloarthropathy (arthritis affecting the spinal column), and its name comes from the Greek “ankylos-”, meaning “crooked”. Spondylitis can be broken down into “spondyl-” and “-itis”, which mean “spine” and “inflammation”, respectively.

Simply put, it’s a fusion of the joints in the axial skeleton (the spinal column, ribcage, and cervical collar), but there’s little else that’s simple about this condition. While it’s known to have a strong genetic predisposition and heritability, the exact triggers that begin the process of syndesmophytosis (literally “the process of abnormal binding together”) which fuse bones together is not known.

While many of the genetic and immune factors in AS similar to those in rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylopathy has been differentiated from other RA conditions as early as the second century CE, by Galen. Because of its effect on the spinal column, AS has long been known as “bamboo spine”.

Unfortunately, despite many treatments and therapies being available to counteract the effects of this autoimmune condition on the bones and organs, there is no cure.

Observations on the hip joint: to which are added … other similar complaints. Edward Ford, 1810.

Nature doesn’t need people, people need nature.

Human beings are part of nature, nature is not dependent on human beings to exist.

Human beings, on the other hand, are totally dependent on nature to exist.

The growing number of people on the planet and how we live here is going to determine the future of nature and the future of us.

Nature will go on, no matter what, it will evolve.

The question is, will it be with us or without us?

If nature could talk, it would probably say it doesn’t much matter either way.

We must understand there are aspects of how our planet evolves that are totally out of our control, but there are things that we can manage, control and do responsibly that will allow us and the planet to evolve together.

We are Conservation International and we need your help.

Our movement is dedicated to managing those things we can control better, country by country, business by business, human by human.

We are not about us vs. them, it doesn’t matter if you’re an American, a Canadian or a Papua New Guinean, and you don’t even have to be particularly fond of the ocean or have a soft spot for elephants.

This is simply about all of us coming together to do what needs to be done, because if we don’t, nature will continue to evolve. Without us.

Here’s to the future. With humans

Most true crime enthusiasts know that Robert Ford killed Jesse James in1882 after living with him and his family. He famously shot James in the back of the head to collect the bounty on the infamous outlaw. A lesser-known story is that of Edward O'Kelley who killed Robert Ford becoming the man who killed the man who killed Jesse James. No one really knows the exact reason O'Kelley killed Ford. All that is known is on June 8th, 1882, Ford was getting ready to open up his saloon when O'Kelley walked in with a shotgun. He said “hello Bob” and then shot as Ford turned to see who was speaking. The blast hit Ford in the neck killing him instantly. It has been said that Soapy Smith, an infamous Colorado con man, had convinced O'Kelley he would become a hero for killing the coward Ford. There is also a theory that O'Kelley had stolen Ford’s diamond ring causing a dispute. The argument escalated from there to murder. He was given a life sentence which was reduced to 18 years in the Colorado State Penitentiary. He was released after only 8 years served. After getting out of jail he moved to Oklahoma City. He was known as a bad man and people knew to keep their distance. In1904 O'Kelley was arrested by an officer named Bunker. After he got out he was heard saying that he wanted to kill the police officer and would fight if a cop tried to mess with him again. While out walking he noticed a cop named Burnett who greeted O'Kelly politely. In reply O'Kelley hit Burnett and pulled his gun out. After a struggle O'Kelley fired the gun several times trying to shoot Burnett. Luckily he missed every shot until he ran out of bullets. At one point one of O'Kelleys friends tried to help him by shooting at the officer,but he lost his nerve and ran away. Finally a man named A. G. Paul came running up from the railroad depot to help officer Burnett. He grabbed O'Kelleys hand, freeing up Burnett’s gun hand. Burnett managed to fire 2 shots, killing O'Kelley, thereby becoming the man that killed the man that killed the man that killed Jesse James. Burnett suffered powder burns to his face but no real harm was done. O'Kelley’s body was taken to the morgue, he had a bullet wound in his left leg and a shot to his head just beyond the left temple exiting the right ear. He was identified through his prison records. On January 28, 1904, O'Kelly was buried by the government. Source Wiki, findagrave.com

This week I went to an exhibition by Elizabeth Price. A collection of art, photography, sculpture and film, groups of images, Sleeping, Working, Mourning and Dancing. A visual history of art to express a flow of emotions, showing bodies in states of sleep, stupor, reverie, repose, grief, despair, sickness, death, pleasure, vulnerability, loneliness, intimacy, poverty and luxury.
It’s a fascinating collection of works, ranging from the 1500s to current time. The most beautiful piece I found to be a sculpture by Edward Onslow Ford (1901) “Snowdrift”. A dream in which snow lulls a traveller into death bound sleep on two tones of marble as if the image on snow is melting into the sheet with ice below.
In a beautiful art deco building by the sea it’s the first day I’ve felt emotional in a good way for a while.
