During a hurricane, the air pressure decreases. This is the most important characteristic of a hurricane. Now do you think you know when Bertha passed? On July 11, near hour 14. It is at this time that the air pressure was at a minimum. Also, the wind speeds increase when a hurricane approaches. At hour 14, the wind speed and wind gust are near their maximum values of 18 meters/second and 24 meters/second, respectively. Keep in mind that Station 41010 was not near the most dangerous and intense area of the hurricane -- the eye wall. If this station were nearer the eye wall, the wind speeds and gusts would have been much higher and the air pressure would have been much lower.
I suspect the leavening effect has more to do with the amount of air that is whipped into the cake during the creaming process. Historically, a pound cake was only leavened mechanically by whipping the sugar and butter. I’ve experimented with using larger grains of sugar and it seems to make a difference. The idea is that the grains of sugar, as they move through the butter, create little air pockets, which are responsible for oven spring and are nucleation points for chemical leaveners and serve to capture the gas that they produce.
GPs usually do a TSH which is thyroid stimulating hormone. If it is high in your blood it means your thyroid medication is too low and If it is low or absent it means your thyroid medication is too high. It is the hormone that stimulates your thyroid to produce more or less thyroid as needed.
The receptionist will read the test and tell you your TSH is low, which means your thyroid medication is really too high. It does get confusing. Thyroid hormone readings are T-3 and T-4. My doctor doesn't do them. He just goes by the TSH readings. Even without a thyroid gland your system produces TSH.
