Reminds me of what happened in the federal govt after the attacks on 9/11, except that was even worse because numerous individuals in govt responsible for the nations security were actually promoted and given raises after the attacks occurred. I always found that rather suspicious. View Comment
I'm not sure what "surfing" is, but I was suspecting he might not have had the money to cover a ticket back to NYC and he may have been trying to sneak a ride on the roof of the train. Or is that what "surfing" is? View Comment
Trouble is, many drivers would probably slam right into those too. ......
Another idea, and I don't know if most trucks use GPS or not (maybe it should be standard), but if they do perhaps there should be a function added to their GPS that alerts them to routes they are restricted from using (before they approach an entrance ramp). ..... Also, it's a ways off, but the closer technology gets to driverless cars (and trucks?), perhaps that will be the final solution. View Comment
Too many truck drivers (and drivers in general), do not know the traffic laws. How many times over the years have I seen a tractor trailer stuck or crashed into or under a bridge on the Merritt or Hutchinson Pkwy? .... Too many. ..... By law, trucks are not allowed on parkways. View Comment
Things you can do to strengthen your immune system for protection against contraction of viral or bacterial infection. You can research needed dose levels;
- Liposomal Vit C
- Olive Leaf extract (preferably containing %20 Oleouropein)
- Colloidal Silver
- Pau dArco (herb)
- Vit D3 plus Vit K
- Pharmaceutical grade Fish Oil
There are others ...
.... Also, ... eliminate use of tobacco, alcohol, refined carbs, sugar View Comment
In my opinion anyone who believes that the CDC is going to be honest with the public about this serious situation, is sadly naive. There is no 'magic bullet' cure for this. Individuals need to learn how to build up their immune system etc and take action now.
Doctor protests CDC;
I'm a bit surprised that the problem of drivers running red lights is not even mentioned in all of this. From what I have observed over the past decade, the most common traffic law being violated on a regular basis is drivers running red lights. I have witnessed it happening more than once right in full view of a patrol car at an intersection and the officer does nothing. I suspect this is because at this point it has become the norm and as a result law enforcement does it too.
It has become the accepted norm for drivers to run red lights and no-one seems to care anymore. In fact many drivers actually honk and get angry at you if you are driving the car in front of them and you don't run the light, there-by allowing them to run it. .... I have almost been broadsided twice because I was beginning to enter an intersection after my light had turned green, and a car suddenly came flying through the intersection in front of me as it ran right through a red light. ..... This is a serious problem and it needs to be addressed.
That 3 second delay between the time that your light turns red and the opposing light turns green is not there to allow you enough time to race through the intersection before the opposing traffic is able to start moving. It is there to ensure that the intersection is completely clear of any traffic before cars at the green light begin to enter the intersection. View Comment
fconverse - From what I have observed over the years, they certainly do at times look that dramatic. Too many of us just don't seem to notice or because we're living in a more urban area such as Stamford etc, the view of the sky is more limited than it would be say in the mid-west. .... Don't forget, we do get tornadoes around here on occaision. Fortunately they are usually short lived and don't develop into really big ones such as they can have out west. View Comment
The US was friends with Saddam Hussein until he moved to start selling Iraqi oil for Euros rather than US Dollars. Israel aside of course, the same issue has been central to the hard stand against Iran. ... Of course most folks are completely unaware that (as reported in The Washington Post, March 23, 2002; Page A01), the first Bush administration was supplying school text books to Afghanistan and Pakistan teaching the principals of Jihad. .... Only the tip of the ice berg of how much responsibility the US bears for the present situation. View Comment
