Convulsions in infants and small children occur when plasma calcium (ionic form, calcium lactate) is decreased by 50 percent. Evidence is irritability and twitching, leading to convulsions and a trip to the emergency room where a sedating drug is given—instead of ionizable calcium which is required to correct the condition. Growing children need calcium lactate […]
Aside from an occasional public service announcement there is almost no mention of swine flu—or H1N1—in the media today. No more Kathleen Sebelius telling you to cough into your bent arm, no more government hucksters urging you get vaccinated. As we approach the one-year anniversary of the first outbreaks let’s look at what we’ve learned…
The United States Supreme Court is weighing the constitutionality of a 1982 ban on handgun ownership in the city of Chicago. It is one of the most stringent bans in the country.
The suit was filed by Otis McDonald, a resident of a Chicago neighborhood who says he is awakened at all hours of the night by all kinds of noises from outside his home. He wants to be able to protect himself from the thugs who roam the streets of his community.
Obviously the gun ban hasn’t worked. In 2008 there were 412 firearm homicides in Chicago, and in 402 of them a handgun was used.
Buoyed by a victory in District of Columbia v. Heller a year and a half ago, gun rights advocates are confident the Supreme Court will rightly rule the Chicago gun ban unconstitutional.
Our cells, if healthy, are programmed to die a natural death within a certain time. This process is called “apoptosis.” When our cells grow wild and don’t die on time, we have cancer. Iodine promotes apoptosis or normal cell death. But the "required daily allowance (RDA) is not enough for iodine dependent tissues of the […]
Dear Bob, If, as stated in your summary report of the pending economic crisis (Surviving A Global Financial Crisis and Currency Collapse), paper money will be worthless because it is not backed by gold or silver, how will one be expected to pay their loan payment or utility bills? I have my paychecks automatically deposited […]
Income tax to the Federal Government is not for income to the government—not one penny. What is it for then? It is for social control. This is a fiat money syndrome. Fiat paper money causes more direct government control over citizens. Abolishing the income tax would restore confidence and prosperity. Read this article to learn more about America’s fraudulent money system…
Each of us secretly hopes that, should we find ourselves facing a disaster, we would respond nobly if not heroically. And we certainly hope that we would never just freeze, like a deer caught in the headlights—or worse, panic.
But how we respond to crisis may be hardwired into our brain’s circuitry long before we’re confronted with a disaster situation. And while practice or preparation can help us to respond properly, we may have little actual control over what we do in a disaster.
That’s the conclusion of Amanda Ripley’s The Unthinkable, which has a subtitle: Who Survives When Disaster Strikes—And Why?
Ripley, an award-winning journalist for Time magazine, has covered some the world’s biggest disasters over the course of her career. In this book she retraces some of history’s biggest calamities—from the 1917 explosion of the munitions ship Mont Blanc, to plane crashes, calamitous fires, the 9/11 World Trade Center attacks, hostage situations and mass shootings—and studies people’s responses in an effort to find out why some survive the seemingly unsurvivable while others perish in situations where survival should have been assured.
