  6. Re: Copper Hospital Beds Kill Bacteria, Save Lives

    Grulla, you built a "masonry chimney." I'm impressed! We built two, using Scott and Helen Nearing's method, in our passive solar home. I'm curious about two things: what "masonry" materials did you...

    Re: The Activity That's Bad For Your Heart

    Oh, great. I don't do sports, and given this chronic hip pain, I can't even do brisk walks any more. Thus my "exercise" (aside from occasional stair climbing) consists of heavy lifting: 50-lb. bags...

  15. Re: How A High Salt Diet May Lead To Cognitive Decline

    Good point. I don't consume processed, salty foods at all but I do have to eat about half a banana daily for enough potassium to avoid leg cramps at night.

    Maurya, I have what's called a Medicare Advantage Plan, a health insurance policy that is somehow affiliated with Medicare (I really don't understand how). When I was sent to the ER a couple of...

  18. Partnering for a path to digital identity

    It's very difficult to find information on ID2020. Articles that appear in search results do not exist when summoned. In simple language, ID2020 is a plan to RFID-chip every human (the kind of...

    I was curious about the status of the vaccine in Japan, since they have gone on record as having a high resistance to accepting it. (Although it has not been banned, it is no longer being...

    That's outrageous! It calls into question every pronouncement made by the CDC.
