Is it really back?
No, not COVID. That has not gone away.
Polio. Is it really back?
Watch this brief video to learn some facts.
I am hooked on this. There is a YouTube channel called "SUV RVing" and it rocks!
Tristan, the guy that runs this channel, is the ultimate adventure seeker. The places he travels to in his SUVs are amazing.
What I like most about his channel is the simplicity. The photography is fabulous, the narration is simple and lively.
One of the things that impresses me the most is Tristan's comfort with loneliness in what could be dangerous situations. I often wonder what would happen to him if the unthinkable happened?
I hope you enjoy his adventures.
There is so much information available to us. And there is so much misinformation fighting its way to capture our attention. Which one wins? The one we pay attention to, of course.
An area that concerns me the most is the misinformation concerning health issues.
In the last few months I discovered the work of Dr. Michael Greger at Nutrition Facts. Everything posted there is science-based. Profits from the few products he promotes (mostly his books) all go to charity. He also does a podcast, which I listen to regularly. It is called "Nutrition Facts with Dr. Michael Greger." Two of the main advantages of using these resources is that they are based on science and that Dr. Greger promotes healing the body through better nutrition (which is an integral part of a healthy lifestyle).
The other resource that I like and recommend is the NPR show "The People's Pharmacy" (which also has a weekly podcast.
Are either of these resources perfect? Probably not. They do go a long way in being more objective than most others in that they are not benefiting directly from Big Pharma and the corrupt medical industry (no longer a profession, now a full-blown, money-driven industry).
What is freedom?
I mean, true freedom.
How do you define freedom?
I was exposed to a different, yet not new, definition of freedom.
I hope you enjoy this short video.
I hope your definition of freedom is changed, expanded, re-focused.
May the power of humanity, the humanity in all of us, helps us all become free.
I was deeply moved by the needless pain and the suffering. I was disgusted by the unjustified greed.
In today's NY Times "The Daily" podcast there is a story of people suffering from the Monkeypox virus and how, through greed and cruelty, they were denied treatment for weeks and months.
When a society values money and profits above the well-being of its members, such society must be examined carefully and thoroughly, and its priorities must be changed. Nothing justifies inflicting horrendous suffering when the treatment is available.
Perhaps we should all adopt a philosophy of "Do no harm."
I hope you listen to the show.
I hope, sooner rather than later, we can demonstrate that we care more about people than about money.
It has been a while since my last post here. Life has been happening to all of us.
