The Bawdy Under the Bed

RATING

ORIGIN

In The Baby Train, folklorist Jan Harold Brunvand writes that he first heard the dead body found under hotel bed legend in 1991. Every version that came to him mentioned a Las Vegas hotel, but the lack of checkable details led him to believe this was an apocryphal tale.

Okay, so we can date the appearance of this legend to 1991. Unlike a number of other such gruesome tales, this legend appears to have sprung from a misremembering of any one of a number of actual news items, with the talebearer shifting certain details so that deaths which took place in anonymous little motels along Interstates are said to have happened in Las Vegas, America s own Sin City, and victims who d (usually) done little else amiss than be in the wrong place at the wrong time and/or take up with questionable company were transformed through the magic of retelling into prostitutes.

Dead bodies get stashed in the box spring or the bed s pedestal more often than you d want to believe. What s more, a fair number of them are only discovered days later after the new tenant complains about a persistent and disagreeable odor.

In each of the following cases not only were bodies discovered under hotel beds, but it was investigations of the smell of decomposition that led to their discoveries.

On 10 July 2003, a man checked into the Capri Motel, just east of downtown Kansas City, and began complaining about a foul odor in his room. Management told him nothing could be done about the problem, and he spent three nights in his room before checking out because he could no longer stand the smell. When the cleaning staff came in to make up the room on 13 July. they lifted the mattress and underneath found a man s body in an advanced stage of decomposition.

On 10 June 1999 the rapidly decomposing remains of 64-year-old Saul Hernandez were discovered inside the bed in Room 112 at the Burgundy Motor Inn in Atlantic City, New Jersey. A German couple had spent the night sleeping over Hernandez s remains, and it was their complaint to the manager about the smell in their room which led to the discovery of the corpse.

In July 1996 a woman s body was found under a mattress in the Colorado Boulevard Travelodge in Pasadena, CA. Apparently the motel s staff discovered her ten days after her demise and only after guests had complained for several days of a foul odor coming from that room.

There were two stashed-and-smelly body cases in Florida in 1994. (Further adding to the confusability of these stories taking place in the same year and the same state, in both instances the next tenants those rooms had were German tourists.) In August 1994 in Fort Lauderdale, hotel staff discovered the body of 47-year-old Bryan Gregory tucked under a platform bed. Though the staff had themselves noticed the strange smell for days, they only set about looking for its source after a German couple spent the night in that room and afterwards complained about the odor.

In March 1994 the body of 24-year-old Josefina Martinez was found underneath a bed at the Traveler s Hotel near Miami International Airport. Again, the discovery was prompted by an aggrieved German tourist upset about a foul odor in his room.

In Virginia in 1989, Jerry Lee Dunbar disposed of the remains of two victims this way: 27-year-old Deirdre Smith, who was discovered in May under the floor of a motel room on Route 1, and 29-year-old Marilyn Graham, who turned up in June under a bed in the Alexandria Econo Lodge. In Smith s case, the killer first kept her body partially hidden under his bed for two days, then subsequently placed it in the crawl space under the carpeted floor. Her presence seemingly didn t bother him, because he didn t move out of that room until three or four weeks later. Both girls bodies were eventually found after other guests complained about the stink.

In Mineola, New York, motel in 1988, a body turned up in a box spring. The remains of 29-year-old Mary Jean DeOliviera were found at the Oceanside Motel. Again, the body was discovered days later and only after other patrons complained about the smell. At least two other guests unknowingly cohabited with the body before it was found, and at least one guest refused to stay in that room because of the smell.

Here s a change of pace not a murder, but a death by misadventure. In Rosedale, Maryland in 1987, an unidentified man died of a drug overdose after one of the thirty-four balloons of heroin he d swallowed burst. His partner stashed the corpse under their motel bed, then split. Three days later, the family the room was next rented to complained about the odor, and this led to the body s discovery.

One of the oldest smelly body left under the bed sightings comes from 1982. Richard Kuklinski, Daniel Deppner, and Gary Smith often teamed together to run auto theft scams. Kuklinski and Deppner decided to kill Smith, and they accomplished this by feeding him a cyanide-laced hamburger in a North Bergen, New Jersey, motel room. Kuklinkski finished off Smith by strangling him when watching Smith die of poisoning proved tiresome. Smith s body was stuffed under the bed and left there. It was found four days later, on 27 December 1982. During the intervening four days, the room had been rented to others each night. Guests had wrinkled their noses at the smell, but none thought to look under the bed.

That case has seemingly been topped by one in which Sony Millbrook of Memphis, Tennessee, was reported missing on 27 January 2010 after she failed to pick up her children from school. Forty-seven days later, on 15 March 2010, homicide investigators were called to the room of a Budget Inn motel where Millbrook had been living just prior to her disappearance, her body having just been discovered inside the frame of the bed there even though the room had reportedly been cleaned and rented several times since her disappearance almost seven weeks earlier.

There are, of course, numerous other cases of dead bodies being left under hotel beds, but I ve chosen not to report on these because they lack the key element of the legend: complaints about the presence of a horrific smell leading to the corpse s discovery. What gives this urban legend its chills-down-the-spine gruesomeness is the body s being found only after an unsuspecting traveler spends the night sleeping above it. That clearly happened in at least some of the cases mentioned here (and perhaps in others where the news reports stated only that hotel guests had complained without specifying which guests).

Urban legends tend to localize to where we believe they likely would have happened. It s easy to understand how in each of the versions Brunvand related that Las Vegas was always named as the city where the corpse reposed, for Vegas is indeed viewed as Sin City, USA. Much easier to believe that the unsuspecting traveler shared his room with a moldering corpse in Las Vegas than it is to (rightly) place that occurrence in small-town New York, Virginia, or Maryland. Especially when dealing with a half-remembered true story, it s natural for the obvious details to replace facts that have been misplaced due to ordinary fuzziness of memory. One, after all, does not let a lack of certainty stand in the way of a good story.

Keep in mind that the Deirdre Smith (1989, Virginia), Marilyn Graham (1989, Virginia), Mary Jean DeOliviera (1988, New York), John Doe (1987, Maryland), and Gary Smith (1982, New York) cases antedate 1991. Gruesome finds like those tend to get heavily reported on, and that certainly happened with Smith, Graham and DeOliviera (the cites below don t begin to do justice to the coverage these discoveries got they were reported on by a double handful of various papers across the USA). It is because of that widespread coverage that I lean towards this legend s having sprung to life out of a true story whose location got shifted from Your Town, USA (where only nice people live) to Sin City (where life and room rates are cheap).

Sightings: Look for this legend in the 1995 film Four Rooms . This legend was also the subject of a July 2014 fake news article.


Lungs Information and Facts #lungs, #breathing, #respiratory, #respiratory #system, #health, #body, #biology


#

Lungs

Our lungs fuel us with oxygen, the body’s life-sustaining gas. They breathe in air, then extract the oxygen and pass it into the bloodstream, where it’s rushed off to the tissues and organs that require it to function.

Oxygen drives the process of respiration, which provides our cells with energy. When we exhale, we produce carbon dioxide as a byproduct. Without this vital exchange, our cells would quickly die and leave the body to suffocate.

Since the lungs process air, they are the only internal organs that are constantly exposed to the external environment. Central to the human respiratory system, they breathe in between 2,100 and 2,400 gallons (8,000 and 9,000 liters) of air each day—the amount needed to oxygenate the 2,400 gallons (9,000 liters) or so of blood that is pumped through the heart daily.

Intricate Construction

Our two lungs are made up of a complex latticework of tubes, which are suspended, on either side of the heart, inside the chest cavity on a framework of elastic fibers. Air is drawn in via the mouth and the nose, the latter acting as an air filter by trapping dust particles on its hairs. The air is warmed up before passing down the windpipe, where it’s divided at the bottom between two airways called bronchi that lead to either lung.

Within the lungs, the mucus-lined bronchi split like the branches of a tree into tens of thousands of ever smaller tubes (bronchioles), which connect to tiny sacs called alveoli. The average adult’s lungs contain about 600 million of these spongy, air-filled structures. There are enough alveoli in just one lung to cover an area roughly the size of a tennis court.

The alveoli are where the crucial gas exchange takes place. The air sacs are surrounded by a dense network of minute blood vessels, or capillaries, which connect to the heart. Those that link to the pulmonary arteries carry deoxygenated blood that needs to be refreshed. Oxygen passes through the incredibly thin walls of the alveoli into the capillaries and is then carried back to the heart via the pulmonary veins. At the same time, carbon dioxide is removed from the blood through the same process of diffusion.

The rate at which we breathe is controlled by the brain. which is quick to sense changes in gas concentrations. This is certainly in the brain’s interests—it’s the body’s biggest user of oxygen and the first organ to suffer if there’s a shortage.

In and Out

The actual job of breathing is done mainly by the diaphragm. the sheet of muscles between the chest and abdomen. These muscles contract when we breathe in, expanding the lungs and drawing in air. We breathe out simply by relaxing the diaphragm; the lungs deflate like balloons.

Lungs are delicate organs and vulnerable to a range of illnesses. The most common of these in Western countries are bronchitis and emphysema, which are often caused by smoking. Tubes inside the lung become chronically inflamed, producing excess mucus. Smoking can also lead to lung cancer, the world’s major cancer, which is diagnosed in 1.4 million people a year.

Many patients of Dr. Grigoryants come from other parts of the world and many celebrities. famous athletes and their family members have turned him for plastic surgery.

Cosmetic plastic surgery is performed to enhance body structures. For example, breast enlargement or breast augmentation is performed using breast implants to increase the breast size and projection. Los Angeles Breast Implants expert Dr. Grigoryants uses silicone and saline implants for breast augmentation. Breast implants are placed through a small incision and placed behind the muscle to achieve a natural look.

In women with sagging breasts, breast lift will improve the shape and position of the breasts. Breast lift may be performed alone or combined with breast augmentation. Many women who are bothered by large and heavy breasts benefit from breast reduction. This procedure reduces the size of the breasts and lifts the breasts at the same time.

Nose reshaping or rhinoplasty (nose job surgery) is performed to improve the shape of the nose and in some patients to also improve breathing. Dr. Grigoryants performs endonasal (closed) rhinoplasty. He places incisions inside the nose so that no scar will present across the bottom portion of the nose. Rhinoplasty Los Angeles surgeon Dr. Grigoryants specializes in primary and revision rhinoplasty.

Tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) is used to remove excess skin and fat in the abdominal area. During a tummy tuck loose abdominal muscles are tightened to further flatten the abdomen. Liposuction is frequently combined with tummy tuck procedures to remove fat excess from the flanks, thighs, arms, or back. Dr. Grigoryants places the tummy tuck incision in such a fashion so that the scar can be easily hidden by underwear. Patients who do not have skin excess but primarily fat excess can be effectively treated by liposuction alone. Dr. Grigoryants uses liposuction or liposculture to improve the contour of various body parts.

Facial plastic surgery includes such procedures as face lift, neck lift, brow lift, eyelid surgery, and placement of chin and cheek implants. These procedures restore a more youthful appearance of the face. Face lift and neck lift procedures can also be combined with liposuction to remove fat excess in the face and neck. Non surgical facial rejuvenation utilizes such products as Botox, Restylane®, Perlane, Radiesse™, and others. These injectables effectively reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles.

Synovial Fluid Analysis #synovial #fluid #analysis, # #2006 #21st #abnormal #abnormally #activities


#

Synovial Fluid Analysis

Synovial fluid analysis is a group of tests that examine joint (synovial) fluid. The tests help diagnose and treat joint-related problems.

Alternative Names

Joint fluid analysis; Joint fluid aspiration

How the test is performed

A sample of synovial fluid is needed for this test. Synovial fluid is normally a thick, straw-colored liquid found in small amounts in joints, bursae, and tendon sheaths.

After the area is cleaned, the health care provider will insert a sterile needle through the skin and into the joint space. Once in the joint, fluid is drawn through the needle into a sterile syringe.

The fluid sample is sent to the laboratory. The laboratory technician will check the sample’s color and clarity, and then place it under a microscope to check it for red and white blood cells, crystals (in the case of gout), and bacteria. In addition, there may be a chemical analysis, and if infection is a concern, a sample will be cultured to see if any bacteria grow.

How to prepare for the test

Normally, no special preparation is necessary, but contact your health care provider before the test to make sure. Tell your doctor if you are taking blood thinners, as they can affect test results.

How the test will feel

Occasionally, the health care provider will first inject local anesthesia with a small needle, which will sting. The aspiration is done with a larger needle and may also cause some pain. The procedure usually lasts less than one minute.

Why the test is performed

The test can help diagnose the cause of pain or swelling in joints. Removing the fluid can also help relieve joint pain.

This test may be used to diagnose:

  • Gout
  • Infection
  • Other inflammatory joint conditions
  • Joint injury
  • Osteoarthritis

What abnormal results mean

Abnormal joint fluid may look cloudy or abnormally thick.

Blood in the joint fluid may be a sign of injury inside the joint or a body-wide bleeding problem. An excess amount of normal synovial fluid can also be a sign of osteoarthritis.

What the risks are

  • Infection of the joint — unusual but more common with repeated aspirations
  • Bleeding into the joint space

Special considerations

Ice or cold packs may be applied to the joint for 24 to 36 hours after the test to reduce the swelling and joint pain. Depending on the exact problem, you can probably resume your normal activities after the procedure. Talk to your health care provider to determine what activity is most appropriate for you.

We are still Alive!

Due to getting our land based business off the ground, I have not allocated much time to this web site. Please excuse my inattention for not adding new material or answering emails. At this time I am continuing with maintenance of this site until more time is available to sit down and format more manuals.

My wife Sondra and I have stated a new business which means I am making a career change. Our decision is mostly based on taking care of our aging mothers. Since I am no longer shipping offshore for extended periods, I will be devoting my time to starting our new venture.

We are doing business as Blind Girl Productions located in Houston, Texas. The basis of our company is buying out the remnants or leftovers from estate and reselling to the general public at very reasonable prices.

For ALL Mechanical / Technical Questionsconcerning your Chevrolet or GMC vehicle which you can not find within some of the manuals on this site, Please ask or post on one of the online forums such as:

On these and other forums online are many knowledgeable people that can help you with your inquires.

There have been times I have been overwhelmed with technical questions, many of which I can not answer. Please consult the forums listed above.

I work offshore on various ships and away from home and the internet for extended periods. During these hitches, I try to work on some of the material to be used in this web site. When I return home, I upload new manuals and information and I will try to respond to emails and/or correct any problems with the site. Please continue to bear with me if I don’t get back with you on a question or fix a page very quickly.

Thank you for your support and checking out this site. I hope some of this material and information has been useful for you.

This collection was originally started online 26 January 2003. Thanks to Rusty of the Old Car Manual Project. these Online Manuals have been relocated in October 2004 to the same server which is capable of handling the bandwidth needed for everyone to reference.
