  1. SCOTIA BANK ATM (Domino's Pizza Location): Is it functioning? Three days no service.
  2. Yes, however I like to know who's keeping me company in my outage...😕
  3. I had the gate openers installed by Automatic Doors Los Leal, excellent service and installation. BTW, the other source didn't respond after numerous attempts.
  4. Actual air quality monitored locally. Ajijic weather hosts a PurpleAir PA-II air quality sensor mounted adjacent to the temperature/humidity sensors for the Davis Vantage Pro2 Plus weather station. The results are automatically sent to purpleair.com website for mapping and analysis.
  5. It doesn't have the same benefits as Table Tennis... Playing For Life Dr. Daniel Amen, a member of the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology and an assistant clinical professor of psychiatry and human behavior at the University of California Irvine School of Medicine, said “Table tennis is the world’s best brain sport.” Studies show it activates various parts of the brain simultaneously. When playing, an overall state of awareness is stimulated — requiring thought and physical alertness. The game is now recommended as a method of warding off Alzheimer’s and for assisting in the treatment of dementia. Benefits include: Increased concentration, alertness and brain function Heightened tactical thinking skills and hand/eye coordination Better overall fitness Health Benefits
  6. Ping pong is the ultimate no-impact sport for all ages including Baby Boomers, kids, seniors and anyone who has been sedentary — and stuck at home — during the pandemic. Ping pong is especially beneficial for people who are suffering from an unsteady gait, frailty and muscle weakness.
  7. Super-agers – that’s people whose biological age is lower than their actual age – should consider taking up the game of ping pong, according to TV preseter Dr Miriam Stoppard. Why? “Because table tennis is the perfect activity to keep you happy, healthy, active and in good spirits” Dr Stoppard has claimed in a recent article on her blog. “Table tennis is the perfect activity to keep well. It doesn’t only keep your body fit, it keeps your brain fit. All that complicated hand-eye co-ordination works its magic with brain cells and helps prevent dementia. The game is one of the fastest racket sports, requiring muscle and cardio endurance. You need nimble footwork and upper body flexibility to return balls that come towards you at 60mph, demanding faster response times than tennis or to badminton.” Table Tennis Chapala
  8. After a few days of acclimatization, cardiac output returns to normal, but heart rate remains increased, so that stroke volume is decreased. Pulmonary artery pressure increases without change in pulmonary artery wedge pressure. This pattern is essentially unchanged with prolonged or lifelong altitude sojourns.
  9. High Altitude is considered 4,900 – 11,500 feet above sea level (1,500 – 3,500 meters), very high altitude is from 11,500 – 18,000 feet (3,500 – 5,500 meters), and extreme altitude is 18,000 feet (5,500+ meters) and above.
  10. https://baillielab.net/critical_care/air_pressure/ At 1524m, the standard barometric pressure is 85 kPa (639 mmHg). This means that there is 84% of the oxygen available at sea level.
  11. Everything you need to know about UTQG ratings What’s a UTQG rated tire, you ask? Excellent question. UTQG stands for Uniform Tire Quality Grading, a standard created by the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT). It’s a system that lets consumers compare tires based on treadwear, traction and temperature. In other words, the UTQG is a handy shopping tool that can lead you to the right set of tires. "the highest UTQG rating is 860 for a Hankook model"
  12. Does he have a website or online info? Please advise. Thank you.
