It’s our last Monday night here on Jet Set Planet. That’s right, we’re packing up all the crates of vinyl, the 45s, the compact discs, the downloads, and we’re moving to Friday nights at 9 starting June 4th. So tonight, it’s time to celebrate our last Monday of Jet Set Planet. And what a way to celebrate — we’re not playing records from the dollar bin, no sirree. We’re playing records but from the .50 cent bin! We’ll sample the Explosive Vocal Percussion(?) of Myrna March, the African Sounds of Carl Stevens, the Bongo instruction expertise of Jack Burger, and the production library prowess of the Glen Somers Orchestra. PLUS your gonna enjoy an extended double set of tunes from the adult cinema of the early 1970s near the end of the program.
Kinshasha talked with Dr. Leslie Vilansky and Dr. Betty Maloney about the short and long term consequences of Lyme Disease.
LYMEDISEASE IN MINNESOTA
1 in 3 deer ticks carry Borrelia burgdoreferi (Bb), the bacterial cause of Lyme disease. These ticks may carry other bacteria and parasites (referred to as co-infections), which complicate the clinical picture.
Once thought to be found only in wooded areas, deer ticks have expanded their range and are now found across Minnesota, including the 7-county metro.
Lyme disease has increased 450% in the past 10 years. The state ranks 8th in the nation for reported cases; in 2008, 1,282 cases were reported to the CDC. Due to under-reporting, the CDC estimates that the actual number of surveillance cases is likely to be 10 times more, meaning MN probably had over 12,800 cases in 2008.
