#47 - Face Masks and COVID-19
Dr. James Robb, DM FCAP wrote a letter to his friends and colleagues. In the letter he covers the basics of how we should protect ourselves from COVID-19. Some of his information conflicts with what we are getting from CDC et al. The reason this is important is that Dr. Robb "was one of the first molecular virologists in the world to work on coronaviruses. " He "was the first to demonstrate the number of genes the virus contained." We review his letter, and highlight the conflicting information.

#32 - Near Death Experience NDE with David Frappier and Jeremy (J.M.) Dupe'
As we closed out 2019 we became aware of derivative states of the fundamental mystery of the mind. When are you "dead", and when are you not "dead" - so to say. To open the exploration of this question, we decided to go with a couple of ordinary people of extraordinary capacity, if that sounds familiar.  We were interested in the experience, as well as the bravery, associated with the story of Near Death Experience NDE. Which, for all who remain interested, is a new group on Facebook called Near Death Experience NDE. So, if you find this interesting, join the conversation and tell us your story.
