Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 20, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Ask Andy Barometric pressure Andy Bends a complete 20- yolutne set of the Merit Stu- dents Encyclopedia to Sally age of for her .What does the weatherman mean by barometric The weatherman may give the barometric 'pressure in centimeteres or mili- bars and he usually adds that It is falling or steady. He also reports the local wine direction and may mention its speed. Mysterious- rising or falling barometric pressures may precede either Btorms or clearing skies. Na- turally we want to know what goes on behind the scenes. Barometric pressure is the weight of the atmosphere pres- sing down on thD surface of the earth. Naturally the weather- man doesn't weight the whole which is estimated to be about five quadrillion tons. He weighs a very small sample of the local atmosphere. The in- strument he uses is the baro- meter. It measures a small a column of air that presses down on one square inch of the all the way down from the very top of the Warm air tends to be thinner and lighter than cold air. cold air tends to weigh more and exert more pressure. The standard mercury barome- ter weighs a sample of local air by the pressure it exerts on a glass tube of mercury. Since the weathery air changes from day to so does the local barometric pressure. a sort of midway point is needed to estimate the barometric rising and falHng. highs and lows. The standard unit is taken from a column of air pressing down on one square inch at eea level. The weatherman may give this barometric pressure at 29.92 inches or as 76 centimeters. When talking with fellow met- he may report it more precisely as 60 milli- bars. By barometric pres- local sample of the atmosphere. an enormous air mass may be passing slowly over- head. If the barometric pres- sure is a steady 30.10 or 30.20 inches and moderate winds are northwest or your local weatherman is likely to predict a few days of fair wea- with little change in tem- the picture changes when masses of warm and cool air collide. Winds tend to blow from masses of high pressure air into a region of light low pressure. As these weathery conflicts pass over- the airy turmoil causes the barometric pressure to rise or fall as the local air gains or loses weight. Of the global weather picture changes with the sea- sons varies from place to place between the equator and the poles. But as a the ups and downs of barometric pressure indicate what's ahead in this or that local situa- tion. Let's see what sometimes happens in southeastern Can- ada. Suppose the wind is south- the barometere 30.10 in- ches and falling. The weather- man may forecast stronger winds and rain within 24 hours. When the wind shifts to the southwest and the barometer rises slowing above 30 he may forecast clearing s'des and a few days of fair weaker.

Aid to ailing husband Dear Dr. Lamb I am 60 years old and have always been very nervous. My hus- band had a heart attack and two strokes. The last one left him partially paralyzed on the right side and a little fuzzy in his thinking. This has forced me to take over. I had never driven a car and feared them. Now I must drive. He shelter- ed me and I was a fat helpless lump. Now all of a sudden the bottom has dropped out. Recently I find that my arms and legs are shaky and I awaken with headaches and ill stomach. I have a gall stone and have continual indigestion patterns T nnn'f fn HOt dlSCl nervous habit. It's surprising how many people have vague symptoms of indigestion who feel better when they stop using coffee. I have repeatedly seen this in patients. The second suggestion would be too eliminate all milk and milk products and see if that helps cut down on your gas problem. A good many people don't tolerate the milk sugar lactic acid and this can cause the bloating effects. These are minor suggestions 1 and will not supplant your need j for good medical supervision I but they are important living that are sometimes' and heartburn. I can't seem to 1 not discussed in the course of a take full breaths and feel bloat- ed. I have been taking a Valium tablet but now I need two. My arms and legs go numb and become cold and I have to lie down. As I read these complaints it sounds like I am a hypochon- driac but truly I want to be on the go and try to be of help to a wonderful man who needs me and who took care of me for 40 years. I don't want to go to the doctor if it is not neces- sary but I am so exhausted. I would be if by what I have told you could reas- sure me that it is only nerves and that I will get my back again. Dear Reader No doubt a number of your problems are associated with nervous ten- as you suspect. you'll need a medical examina- tion to properly assess the role of the gall stone which you say you in causing your feel- ing of fullness and -stion. The bast way you caji help your husband is by staying in good health and you can't do that without proper medical examination. I would make two don't use any tea or other drinks that contain caffeine in them since they are brain stimulants and counter- act the beneficial effects that you might be getting from Val mm. It's all tooo easy when one's under tension to start drinking too much coffee as a rather extenshe medical exam- ination. Your letter points up one other thing which it seems to me all women should think about. They should do their best to learn to be self suf- ficient early in life. Of course you feel threatened with all of these new responsibilities that you've never learned to cope with. Every woman should know how to drive a car and how to manage the basic as- pects of living. She should be prepared for the real world since many women are forced to look after their own and sometimes small quite unexpectedly. It is much easier ti learn to cope with all these problems of living when there is no family crisis than once a crisis has occurred. While it is wonderful to be being over-protected causes a woman to become helpless and a sitting duck for misfortune. Enterprise Send your questions to Dr. in care of this news- paper. P.O. Box 1551.
