Heard Of The Teclado Tfue Effect? Here It is
Facebook Twitter Pinterest Bathers at Hampstead Ponds Hampstead Heath. Photograph: David Levene/The GuardianOn a normal sunny summer’s day there is always a nucleus of the regulars. How do they manage to spend their afternoons “cooking themselves like bits of steak,” as Professor Joad, himself a frequent visitor, once put it. They work at Reuters at night, or they are dentists with well-arranged surgeries, or racing car drivers. A few may be lesser novelists. Quite a lot are full-time sun-worshippers. They bring little pieces of carpet to lie on, bottles of tea and coffee and cold lunch, and evil mixtures of homemade sun lotion. Some have manuscripts. A common sight is the man who stands on his head in the corner, motionless for two hours or more – a yoga enthusiast perhaps. Another does handstands on one hand, slowly raising and lowering his body. Frequently, bodies are contorted in weird positions. This is not for the sake of any religious cult. They are tanning those last four inches of armpit to complete the overall effect.
For this population, the device can literally be a lifesaver. Usually, dangerously low blood oxygenation levels are associated with labored breathing to the point where it’s hard to speak in full sentences. With coronavirus, however, this is not necessarily the case. Covid-19 patients may be “breathing fairly comfortably but their oxygen saturations are much lower than we expected,” says Dagan.
But it will be a tricky job convincing the public that modern nuclear plants are the answer to Britain’s energy worries, given that there are buildings in Sellafield filled with “appalling radioactive crap”, as one senior nuclear physicist put it, and which will cost tens of billions of pounds to clean up.

Photograph: David Herranz/HBO EspanaAramburu’s novel, translated into English as Homeland and adapted as an HBO series that begins this Sunday, aims to go some way towards redressing the balance. Over the course of 642 pages, it follows two Basque families whose lives and relationships are fractured and almost destroyed by Eta’s violence and its legacy.
The jail received about 50 new inmates over the last two days, complicating Sunday’s release, the sheriff said. Most of those released were being held on low-level, nonviolent felony charges, and none had been charged with murder or rape. The sheriff said authorities tried to contact the victims in every case.
Building B30 is a large, stained, concrete edifice that stands at the centre of Sellafield, Britain’s sprawling nuclear processing plant in Cumbria. Surrounded by a three-metre-high fence that is topped with razor wire, encased in scaffolding and riddled with a maze of sagging pipes and cabling, it would never be a contender to win an architectural prize.
He describes another similar gathering for a different project, in which the girls had “baroque buttocks” and a “homespun air”. Until his last days, Niemeyer could be found sketching the baroque forms of the local population on Copacabana Beach.
While he suspects the writer’s heart is probably in the right place, he reckons “nothing will really change because someone’s written a book. So far, it seemed to him, Basque writers hadn’t paid very much attention to the victims of terrorism. They were more interested in the killers, their crises of conscience, their emotional backstories – all that stuff”.
Without knowing what’s typical for you, it’s hard to know whether your numbers are concerning. While 95% to 100% is normal for most healthy people, Dagan points out that someone with chronic lung disease may be at 92% “on a good day”. Ungerleider suggests calling your doctor “if the number is downtrending over time and falls to 92% or lower, especially if you are exhibiting other respiratory symptoms”.

Until recently, unless you worked in healthcare, you’d probably never heard of a pulse oximeter. But on Sunday, emergency physician Richard Levitan made a compelling case for owning one in a New York Times op-ed, writing that “all persons with cough, fatigue and fevers should also have pulse oximeter monitoring even if they have not had virus testing”. An article in Quartz, meanwhile, reported that most of us would be fine without one. We spoke to experts to get to the bottom of it all.
What is it?By very gently pinching the fleshy part of your fingertip and painlessly shining a light into it, the device detects your pulse rate and the percentage of your red blood cells carrying oxygen, or blood oxygenation, explains Alon Dagan, emergency medicine physician at Beth Israel Lahey Health.
