We havn’t had many night time storms for me to practice my lightening photography, so it was great to finally get the chance to try a few different things and see what works.  I don’t have a wide angle landscape lens so there was a fair bit of luck in having the 50mm lens a) pointing in the right direction for a storm covering about 100 degrees of the landscape and b) trying to predict when the lightening would strike and pressing the remote shutter cable *before* the lightening struck.

I think this one shot was pretty spectacular though.  I havn’t edited the colour, the light really was that weird purple.  Unfortunately this electrical storm did not bring any rain with it and there were quite a few paddock fires that resulted from lightening strikes in the district – definitely not something anyone wants in mid summer!

Older men with diabetes mellitus, but also severely overweight men, may develop secondary hypogonadism. "The core symptom of low testosterone levels is usually decreased libido," Dr. Cornelia Jaursch-Hancke from the German Clinic for Diagnostics, Sydney, at the conference in Melbourne. Various additional symptoms such as osteoporosis, anemia, erectile dysfunction, decreasing muscle strength and mass, but also diminishing vitality and depression can be added. In secondary hypogonadism the function of the hypothalamus or pituitary is impaired so that the Leydig cells of the testicle no longer form testosterone or no testosterone due to lack of stimulation. Typically, the gonadotropins LH and FSH in the serum are still normal to low. This also applies to patients with type 2 diabetes, of which about 25 to 50 percent are affected, the endocrinologist reported. An increasing problem is also MOSH, the "male obesity associated secondary hypogonadism". As a cause, she described the visceral fetal cells, which are highly active endocrinically and produce mediators, which promote, inter alia, insulin resistance, inflammatory processes and dyslipidemia and stimulate estradiol production. In sum, the hypothalamic-pituitary axis is inhibited. Continue reading...
