In the Heights (2021) Breathe

In the United States, people of color breathe more particulate air pollution on average, a finding that holds across income levels and regions of the US, according to a study by researchers at the EPA-funded Center for Air, Climate, and Energy Solutions. The findings expand a body of evidence showing that African Americans, Hispanics, Asians, and other people of color are disproportionately exposed to a regulated air pollutant called fine particulate matter (PM2.5).

EPA's goal is to provide an environment where all people enjoy the same degree of protection from environmental and health hazards and equal access to the decision-making process to maintain a healthy environment in which to live, learn, and work. To help achieve this, EPA researchers are focused on understanding the air quality concerns in overburdened communities and the health impacts of the residents. They are providing scientific expertise and tools to assist states, tribes, and communities to address environmental justice and equity issues, so that all people can breathe clean air and enjoy improved quality of life.

As xylazine and other adulterants enter the illicit drug supply, some overdose victims aren't responding to naloxone alone. Because of this, some public health and harm reduction advocates are reminding people who use drugs and their allies that rescue breathing can also be an important intervention. Rescue breathing is not the same as having a tank of oxygen on hand, as they do at OnPoint and other safe consumption spaces. One simple mantra: Tilt neck, pinch nose, breathe into mouth, count to 5, repeat.

Part of the hard-to-breathe myth probably arises from the fact that the air up top is about 40% less rich in oxygen than the air on the ground. If the ground is at a higher elevation, the total numbers drop correspondingly. (Skydive Tecumseh is at about 804 feet above sea level. Compare that to Mile-Hi Skydiving in Longmont, Colorado, which sits up at 5,055 feet.) Since skydiving exit altitudes above ground level are pretty standard, you can see how jumpers at higher-elevation dropzones could feel a little lightheaded up there.

At Skydive Perris, we also offer High Altitude Low Opening Skydives (HALO), which reach heights of 16,500 feet AGL. At this height, the air is considerably thinner, and without assistance, it would be difficult to breathe. This is why, for HALO skydives, supplemental oxygen is required and provided during the ride to altitude.

So how can I say that while I was awayI had so much to hideHey guys! It's meThe biggest disappointment you knowThe kid couldn't hack itShe's back and she's walking real slowWelcome homeJust breathe

There is nothing more essential to our health and well-being than breathing: take air in, let it out, repeat twenty-five thousand times a day. Yet, as a species, humans have lost the ability to breathe correctly, with grave consequences. 041b061a72
