DKW ist tot, es lebe Audi: Der 1963 vorgestellte DKW F 102 ist nicht nur der letzte Zweitakter aus dem Hause DKW, sondern auch der letzte DKW-Pkw überhaupt. Nachdem 1964 rund 25.000 F 102 auf Halde standen, wurde die Fabrikation 1966 eingestellt. Doch im ersten Audi (ohne Typbezeichnung!) lebte der DKW F 102 weiter, allerdings mit von einem von Daimler-Benz entwickelten Viertaktmotor.

Piano concerto N°2 in F major Op.102 - II. Andante

Dmitri Dmitriyevich Shostakovich (1905-1975).

Shostakovich’s Piano Concerto No. 2 in F major, Op. 102, was composed in 1957 for his son Maxim’s 19th birthday. Maxim premiered the piece during his graduation at the Moscow Conservatory. It is an uncharacteristically cheerful piece, much more so than most of Shostakovich’s works.

This concerto is sometimes dismissed as one of the composer’s less important works, especially in comparison to some of the symphonies and string quartets. In a letter to Edison Denisov in mid-February 1957, barely a week after he had finished work on it, the composer himself wrote that the work had “no redeeming artistic merits”. It is suggested that the comment was actually meant to be tongue-in-cheek. 

Despite the apparent simplistic nature of this concerto, the public has always regarded it warmly, and it stands as one of Shostakovich’s most popular pieces.

Come to the ICU & I will give you a life-saving Tylenol!

Got a transfer to the ICU from Medical for “fever & possible sepsis”. Patient was tachycardic, hypertensive, & temp was 102.8 F. Checked when he had his last dose of Tylenol & it was 15 hours before he came to me. Gave him 650 mg of Tylenol & his fever broke an hour later. Patient was transferred out of ICU less than 10 hours later. Family thanked me for “saving his life” & doctors said “I did a good job”.

Hey. I found this on Healthline. It is not about breaking a, but I thought it would be helpful. "Adults 18 and over typically don’t need medication for a fever under 102°F (38.9°C). Fevers above that number may be reduced by medication. If your fever goes above 103°F (39.4°C) or doesn’t respond to treatment, a call to the doctor is warranted. Adults with a fever and other symptoms, such as a stiff neck, severe pain anywhere in the body, or shortness of breath, should seek medical attention."

Thank you so much!

Daily reminder that Link knows what age you should let your child have popcorn (age 4), what food babies shouldn’t have (honey), what temperature you should be taking them to the hospital when they have a fever (102.4 F) and exactly how much time a child should spend on time out (1 minute plus their age).

(Dmitri) Shostakovich - Piano Concerto No. 2 in F major, Op. 102: II. Andante

Dmitri Shostakovich’s son, Maxim Shostakovich conducts Piano Concerto No. 2 in F major which is performed by Maxim’s son, Dmitri Shostakovich Jr. and accompanied by the I Musici de Montreal.

Not often I share classical music, but this piece, from one of the most outstanding composers of the 20th century, probably comes in as one of my desert island discs.

Throwback Thursday - 2003 Heatwave in the Sims 1

We’re currently have an awful heatwave in France. 39°C (102°F) is expected where I live tomorrow (I hate heat. I hate when it’s more than 25°C…)

But it reminded me that during the summer 2003 (where we had another terrible heatwave), I had meshed a garden chair with basin of water for Sims 1. It was cloned from the highest comfort armchair. I might redo this again for Sims 3 and 4 if temperatures don’t cool down! :D
