INM no longer approving Visitante Visa extensions for USA & Canada citizens


Some people on Facebook are complaining that the US rules supposedly restrict travel for gringos returning home to the USA.   Fortunately, they are wrong. 😉

Here’s the official word from the US Govt, June 21, 2020:
” US citizens are considered “Essential” travelers… “COVID-19 Related Travel Restrictions across the U.S. Borders with Canada and Mexico

The United States will temporarily limit inbound land border crossings from Canada and Mexico to “essential travel”.

This action does not prevent U.S. citizens from returning home.

These restrictions are temporary and went into effect on March 21, 2020. They will remain in effect through 11:59 pm on July 21, 2020. This decision has been coordinated with the Governments of Mexico and Canada.

The following categories do not fall within the definition of “essential travel:”
Individuals traveling for tourism purposes, such as sightseeing, recreation, gambling, or attending cultural events in the United States.

Who is considered an “essential” traveler?

Citizens and lawful permanent residents returning to the United States.
Individuals traveling for medical purposes (e.g., to receive medical treatment in the United States).

Individuals traveling to attend educational institutions.

Individuals traveling to work in the United States (e.g., individuals working in the agriculture industry who must travel between the United States and Canada or Mexico in furtherance of such work).

Individuals traveling for emergency response and public health purposes (e.g., government officials or emergency responders entering the United States to support federal, state, local, tribal, or territorial government efforts to respond to COVID-19 or other emergencies).

Individuals engaged in lawful cross-border trade (e.g., truck drivers supporting the movement of cargo between the United States and Canada and Mexico).

Individuals engaged in official government travel or diplomatic travel.”
Individuals engaged in military-related travel or operations.

Chaac … Chaacob .. Maalobi ! … Let it Rain !

June 2, 2020

.. Chaac  … strikes the clouds with his lightning-ax !! …

= = = =
**The Chaacs … “Chaacob” … make it rain … and rain … and rain …

and … Yes … There were actually 4 different Chaacs … “Chaacob” !

~       ~       ~       ~       ~       ~       ~
~ Chac Xib Chaac … “Red Man Chaac”
~ The Rain God of the East ~

(because our red sun rises in the East.)

~ Sak Xib Chaac … “The White Chaac of the North”

~ Ex Xib Chaac … “The Black Chaac of the West”
(The West … where the dark storm clouds form)

and finally
~ Kan Xib Chaac … “The Yellow Chaac of the South”.

Collectively, these were called the Chaacob
or Chaacs …

ALL HAIL CHAAC (s) !

Each of the four Chaacob had different roles:

Think about all the different story glyphs across the Mayab  (Maya lands)  describing how important Maya Kings held Fire Ceremonies:

One Chaac “takes the fire” …

A second Chaac “begins the fire“,

another “gives scope to the fire“,

and the final Chaac “puts out the fire”.

When the sacred fire was lit, Maya priests cast the hearts of sacrificial animals into the sacred fire …  and the four Chaac priests ultimately poured their jugs of water onto the sacred fire… to put out the flames.

Traditionally … this Chaac   “Fire Ceremony”   was performed twice each year
… Once in the dry season … Once in the wet season.

~       ~       ~       ~
Time for a Fire Ceremony !!

Flying During the COVID Crisis … Practical Ways to Minimize Risks

May 26, 2020

We’ve had 4 different people request advice on how to minimize COVID-19 risks when flying,    So, we did a bit of research about what scientific reports report on how to best reduce risks … including studies of which seats get the worst exposures to upper respiratory virus infections… focusing on SARS and Coronavirus infections.

1. Our biggest risk is inhaling highly-infectious fine aerosols from fellow passengers or Flight Attendants talking.   For that reason, we advise taking 2 superb medical grade masks on any the trip … in case you misplace one.

… See TalkingAerosols.com for details on superb medical grade masks.

2. Plan to sit in the middle of the plane … at a window seat … at the point farthest from the bathrooms.

Every single Public Health study, that measured viral exposures for upper respiratory viruses … (and even Tuberculosis by inhaling contaminated fine aerosols) … show that those window seats … middle of the plane …    farthest from the bathroom    get as much as 7X times lower exposures than the aisle seats close to the bathrooms.

Any aisle seat is undesirable, because of people walking by … leaining above you … spraying, breathing …. where lots of people keep walking to the bathrooms… WITHOUT MASKS… as the airlines ONLY require masks to get on the planes.

Yes… the airlines fear angry passengers getting violent with stewardesses on the planes if the Flight Attendants even asked politely that stressed passengers to put their mask back on… … SO EXPECT SOME PASSENGERS TO HAVE NO MASKS during the flight … per the latest official airline policies.

3. BE THE LAST PERSON ON THE PLANE … Sit in the gate area … 10 ft away from other people … 10 ft is the actual safe distance for being protected from plumes of the nastiest COVID infected aerosols.

… If you doubt this 10 ft rule, REMEMBER back to some smoker’s burning cigarette in the ashtray … the smoke moves out as a slow swirling plume … The nastiest fine COVID aerosols (from people talking) swirl slowly away from the talker … in plumes… over the next 3 hours after the infected-person talked … just like that old cigarette smoke swirls out slowly,  in plumes…

Weirdly … the CDC has assumed that the infectious COVID aerosols from talking … magically… move out from the infected-speaker … as a uniform mist… Strangely, by announcing just a 6 ft “Social Distancing” standard …  the CDC guys did not consider plumes of the nastiest COVID-contaminated aerosols swirling out at plumes,  from COVID-infected person talking.

Also, notice that the first person boarding onto the plane, sitting in a 1’st class aisle seat … where they have to experience EVERY SINGLE other entering passenger’s gunk … is the worst seat … at the worst time.

So… insist on that scientifically-proven-most-safe window seat far from the bathrooms … plus getting on the plane LAST … … and then sitting quietly till everyone else leaves …. truly does limit your exposures best.

4. Next consider the coughed-spit-sneezed- Ssss’s, T’ssss, popped Psss and Ch’s  by people standing over you (as you sit, trapped in your airline seat or restaurant seat  )… Those big droplets that we can see (not the fine invisible 1 um swirling ones) …. those big droplets spray out of everyone’s mouth when talking, coughing or sneezing … and they fall quickly in a curved downward path landing between 3 ft to 6 ft of the messy-speaker-cougher

That’s why Doctors & Nurses wear face shields for the big droplets plus a good medical grade filter-mask (for the invisible swirling highly*infectious mist inhaled aerosols)…. So … consider either a decent pair of safety glasses (I have two, designed especially for surgeons & EMTs … to stop the spray hazard) … or consider a face shield.

Then note that official lab safety glasses (with side shields) + mask are as good as mask + cheap face shield … and you only look ½ as geeky.
😉

5. So… we really do not want a flight attendant or any passenger standing over us… talking (spitting) directly down onto us… which is the second reason for the WINDOW seat … where no one even climbs over you. as even the best glasses or face shield do not stop everything.

and next…

6. HYDRATE, HYDRATE HYDRATE … because thin runny mucous is your best defense at your body (nose-throat-lung) mucous membranes catching & sweeping away any inhaled particulates or aerosols (drink enough till you urine is light straw colored in the bowl)…

7. Also …  take vitamin C at least 3 times a day … 125 mg per dose … because we pee out the morning Vitamin C pill by 12:00 noon … Vitamin C acts as a bodyguard molecule, to protect your key immune system compounds in your mucous membrane keeping them in top fighting condition.

Technical Details Here: https://yucalandia.com/2020/04/10/improved-coronavirus-covid-19-protection-by-consuming-vitamin-c/

8.   In addition to consuming sources of 125 mg of Vitamin C at least 3 – 4 times a day, consider sucking on Zinc lozenges while in the airports and during the flight.   There is some decent evidence that Zn bathing our throats can be effective at inhibiting the upper respiratory viruses reproduction .. (like SARS * COVID-19’s virus) .

9.   Have a good strong flow of HEPA cleaned air flowing past your face, when in your seat on the plane… Turn on your air flow jet, at your seat … to get a constant flow of fresh purified air … blowing away any of your neighbor’s swirling invisible COVID infected fine aerosols, so you do not contact them …. as the airlines now have HEPA filtered air on their HVAC systems…. So again … the constant breeze… blows any of the neighbors infected aerosols away from your face.

With the airlines running HEPA filters … and you getting on the airplane last … and you wearing a superb medical-grade mask that outperforms the N95 masks … and you sitting in a window seat (not being spit on)  … and you wearing professional medical eye protection … and you sitting far from the bathrooms …. and you having both your mucous membranes in top performance & immune system in top performance (hydrating, Vitamin C and Zinc)  ….

and yes… Wash your hands & use hand sanitizer … (worth doing to STOP BACTERIAL infections …  because touching things is the lowest source of COVID risks on airplanes) …

then …. If you have done all of that…. You’ve done your best to minimize your risks from flying.

COVID-19 … The Hidden Risks … aka: Why We need Superb Medical-Grade Masks.

May 13, 2020

COVID-19 Public Health Notice:
A few thoughts for all the people using ordinary cloth masks … and even N95 masks.**

Remember … The bacteria & fungi have a big banquet, feasting on the dead skin, greasy gunky sebum, etc. trapped in ordinary cloth masks …

–  as so many people keep putting that bacteria & sebum-contaminated cloth … back onto their lips.

woman in face mask

Why mention this?
Some people have asked if modern, high-tech surgical barrier cloth masks might be a significant disease transmitters, like other cloth masks ?? … They imagined a medical-grade, teflon-treated surgical barrier cloth mask …. might require extreme special handling – of supposedly never touching the inside surface of the mask with your fingers .. never touching the inside part of the mask … that we put our lips on …

They also asked if they supposedly needed to use sterile procedures to handle … & carefully store masks in a sterile bag between uses.

Fortunately … They are thinking of normal cloth that absorbs & holds lots of gunk … and they’re forgetting that high-tech modern surgical barrier-cloth masks have a special hospital-proven ~teflon~ coating. (Hospitals reliably wash & rewash surgical barrier cloth scrubs & masks over 40 times.)

medical workers in masks

= = = =
Notice that in contrast to modern, medical-grade, teflon-coated masks … all the other ordinary cloth masks get wet & nasty from our breath … nasty from all the 10,000’s of embedded dead skin cells … nasty & funky from all the bacteria & fungi growing in the cloth from the greasy sebum from our pores.

Bacteria & fungi multiply on dirty cloth, paper & N95 masks … while on a teflon-coated high-tech medical-grade mask … they die.

Sadly … Ordinary cloth masks hold lots of both dead skin & oily sebum, plus 10’s of millions of nasty microbes, even after washing, unless you bleach the crap out of them How many people soak their  ordinary cloth … for over 10 minutes in 1 part bleach in 2 parts water to make it fit to touch our mouths ?

Sadly .. 5 decades of testing prove that all the N95, paper, & cloth masks HOLD microscopic DIRT, 10,000’s of dead skin cells and lots of gunky sebum from our pores, regardless of how we wash them. … That’s why the official rule is:
Use them once, and throw them away … **

In contrast … the modern teflon-treated professional medical-grade … high tech … surgical barrier cloth masks are specifically designed to easily & completely release all that dirt, oil, sebum & dead skin (from wearing them) … They easily come clean, when we wash them in simple dish soap … and … High-tech, teflon-coated surgical barrier cloth masks are intentionally designed to be fully bleachable with normal ordinary disinfection protocols for slick materials …   Gently handwash up to 70 times in dish soap …  Then soak for 10 minutes in ½ tsp of bleach in ½ cup of water for disinfection.

So, just like our silverware washes clean in dish soap,
making silverware safe to put in your mouth… Instead, think of your ordinary cloth mask like the   dirty dish cloth … that becomes a funky funky microbe jungle … over even short times.

and YES… ordinary cloth holds so many dead skin cells & greasy bacterial-laden sebum … that when the ordinary cloth mask touches our lips & mouth … then that contaminated cloth seeds that our mouth with nasty bacteria & fungi …

So…
Anyone who has a paper or cloth mask needs to bleach the living-crap out of them … after every use.

… 1 part bleach to 2 parts water is the accepted formula for killing virulent bacteria & fungi growing in organic materials on laboratory counters to make them fit to eat off of … as the WHO guidelines order 5,000 ppm bleach for cleaning an already clean lab bench that has had contact with organic contamination like saliva or sebum-oily dead skin residues …

** or …. just throw the ordinary cloth mask … away …

** just like hospitals … throw away all the nasty paper masks after every single use.

**and yes, N95 masks are supposed to be thrown away after every use, due to those same nasty contamination problems.

Latest COVID-19 Updates … Practical Solutions to Get our Lives Back on Track

May 10, 2020

One of the peculiar benefits of a crisis is that our very talented scientific community springs into action, doing fine research in very short times.

This report includes the best of recent research, blended with the last 17 yrs of superb scientific work on exactly how COVID-19 is spread … and how to protect ourselves & our loved ones.

There’s good summary article, published by a decent biologist, that’s a pretty quick read … but as you read it, notice that the biologist-author is missing 4 key pieces.

https://www.erinbromage.com/post/the-risks-know-them-avoid-them?fbclid=IwAR3_zcjumrT1a1EZP4vzbAWVQYL7sYXeFI8V6sNViICyL5c57NFUqNEhymQ

The author’s 4 critical missing pieces:
1.   Talking is the biggest generator of the highest-risk, most infectious COVID-19 fine aerosols.    Notice that just 5 minutes of talking   in an indoor space    contaminates the area with highly-contagious invisible mists of much higher levels of the nastiest COVID-contaminated fine aerosols    than the author reports as a problem.

Notice that just 5 minutes of normal talking emits 26 COVID-coughs worth of the nastiest COVID-aerosol … while loud talking emits    104 COVID-coughs worth    of the most-infectious,  highest-risk  fine aerosols* ….

sneezed droplets

*The nastiest COVID aerosols are less than 5 um diameter … with special focus on the 2.5 um size range aerosols that    evade   (get  around & through)   most masks  … smaller than 3 um aerosols … the most easily inhaled particles,   inspired with every breath  … including those nastiest  2.5 um COVID aerosols get stuck deep in out throats & lungs..

Infected people talking …  indoors … especially in public spaces … need to wear    superb medical grade masks    to protect others from their talking-emitted highly infectious COVID aerosols.

Mask Anne Marie

https://www.nature.com/articles/s41598-019-38808-z

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
The second critical piece that the author is missing

Those highest-risk, most-infectious COVID fine aerosols float & swirl & circulate for another 4 – 5 hours in the room … invisibly slowly spreading out to 20 ft from the talker. …. This sounds terrifying … but dilution & masks are our friends.**

https://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/926929?src=soc_fb_200318_mscpedt_news_mdscp_surfaces&faf=1&fbclid=IwAR0qurgUYs9cIIfEl77YB_L5Sx-nqw4MvvMuF2m1Ejwn43fGXvI9DrDBmkU

Notice that when we combine the results & facts from the 1’st research article,  (see the Nature article above), combined with this article,    we see that just 7 minutes of a loud talker,   contaminates the indoor space around him   with over highly-infectious 10,000 fine aerosols    => equal to 104 COVID-coughs worth of the nastiest fine aerosols.

Then notice that the author   (of the summary article above)    points out that that it is believed that    inhaling just 1000 of these highly-infectious  aerosols    are estimated to be enough to infect even a healthy person.

Also notice that the CDC knows these things … and have been quietly ordering US doctors & hospitals:
“In general, only essential personnel should enter the room of patients with COVID-19. … in full PPE protection “

After discharge, terminal cleaning   (of patient rooms)   may be performed by only EVS personnel.

…. They should    ~delay entry~    into the room   ~ until a sufficient time has elapsed for enough air changes ~  (strong ventilation) ~  to remove infectious airborne particles. ~

https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/hcp/infection-control-faq.html?fbclid=IwAR1NQJggHqCT67p7BktJU8ZPadj4zEVbxllNRwYBJC8aDQCAw7GWe2swc6o

Conclusions?
We need EFFECTIVE useful approaches… NOW…

Note … Ordinary cloth masks are proven to  NOT work … Home-made cheap masks … and other non-medical masks do NOT work … because they can leak over ~100 COVID-coughs ~ worth of the highest risk, most-infectious aerosols… with every breath we inhale.

We & our loved ones need superb medical-grade masks now… with N99 to N100 filtering protection …

Check out   TalkingAerosols.com ( https://talkingaerosols.com/ )  for details on some superb … washable 70 times .. teflon-treated … special surgical barrier cloth … medical-grade masks …

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
The last  missing  points?
The quality of your mask makes a huge difference … Think medical grade masks … versus flat masks (modestly sealing)   …   versus homemade masks.

Notice that most masks leak 35% – 40% of those nastiest fine aerosols … while the home-made masks typically leak 70%.

This gives the non-medical grade masked people    standing just outside the 6 ft “Social Distancing” radius of the COVID infected loud talker … get a dose of 1 full COVID cough of the nastiest fine aerosols   from just 5 minutes of breathing in  the loud talker’s invisible highly-infectious aerosols.

and yes… This can happen in  every Uber,   every grocery store line,   every bank line with every breath inhaling a COVID-cough aerosol equivalent contaminated air, through cheap masks.

**Time, Dilution and superb medical-grade MASKS are our friends …

When we step into the space where the infected-talker was talking, (like in the Uber) … or his spot in the tienda … we start inhaling his 10,000 most-infectious fine aerosols …

but his invisible mists of 10,000 of the most-infectious COVID fine aerosol linger indoors & only-slowly swirl-circulate out (indoors)… filling that “Social Distancing” 1.5 m distance … leaving an invisible cloud that can give us a 5 minute inhaled dose of 2 full COVID-coughs (due to uneven distributions).

But … as his infected  invisible  mists slowly swirl out even further … our inhaled doses of COVID’s nastiest aerosols  fall dramatically.

Fortunately … even after 7 minutes of the loud-infected talker spewing the nastiest COVID-contaminated aerosols …   when we increase the distance … increasing from Social Distance’s 1.5 m,     instead to   3 m (10 ft) … then our inhaled dose   falls dramatically to just   0.1   COVID-cough’s worth of  highly-infectious aerosols inhaled by us …

Why is inhaling just 0.1 COVID-cough worth of aerosols important?
The gold standard of virology is a 1,000 fold reduction of significant risks.
Notice that following a 10 ft rule for distance, reduces that risk by 1,000 fold versus inhaling all the most infectious fine aerosols of a single cough.

= = = =
Why wear a superb mask?
Because we cannot see the nastiest invisible mists, left behind for hours, by the COVID-infected talker…. notice that a good superbly-sealing medical grade mask … reduces that inhaled dose of the nastiest COVID aerosols … to a harmless 0.02 COVID-cough dose of fine aerosols.

Inside vs Outside … and   the Benefits of SPRING-TIME !
Now do we see why New Yorkers … cooped-up inside over-crowded buildings … 10 – 15 people sharing a bathroom …  crowded New Yorkers,  stuck INSIDE, breathing all the bad re-circulated air … due to wintertime …

Do we now understand why New Yorkers have  had the absolute WORST COVID-19 problems?

Now that it’s slowly becoming SPRING … we can all get OUTSIDE … We can get out of the immune-system compromising … dry-dry heated air … or get-out of the dry dry heavily air-conditioned air …

GET OUTSIDE, where even the slightest breezes rapidly dilute-out ALL COVID-aerosols.

GET OUTSIDE … where where  Nature’s  higher natural humidity    keeps our critical first-defense mucous membranes nicely runny … because thin-runny mucous traps the nastiest most-infectious COVID fine aerosols, and our cilia ~ sweeper-cells ~ covering our lung & throat lining cells … are able to sweep the COVID-19 contaminated aerosols up out of our throat & lungs, to fall into the epiglottis … to be destroyed by our stomach acid.

https://yucalandia.com/2020/04/10/fighting-coronavirus-covid-19-protection-by-staying-well-hydrated-our-first-line-of-defense/

and

Eating Enough Vitamin C to Keep Your Immune System at Peak Efficiency
During times of stress … and during Coronavirus spreading .. We need a daily consumption of 500 mg – 1000 mg. total of vitamin C … split into at least four (4) … 125 mg doses …. each about 4 hours apart.

Taking a single Vitamin C supplement pill in the morning just doesn’t work, because we   pee out   the breakfast Vitamin C dose, just 4 hrs after eating it.

500 mg – 1,000 Vit. C a day is necessary during stressful times to protect our already stress compromised immune system,  intentionally eating  higher levels of Vit. C throughout the day … to protect our highly-important immune compounds ~ our body’s best responses that fight Coronaviruses …

By taking enough Vit. C throughout the day,  the Vitamin C acts as  “body-guard” molecules   throughout your body   to protect critical   antibodies & lymphokines, +plus protecting our Immune System defense cells: Macrophages,   Killer-T Cells (T-Lymphocytes),    Dendritic Cells,    White Blood Cells (Basophils & Eosinophiles)

Vitamin C  “body-guards” protect  our key defensive immune-system components … freeing them to attack and destroy the Coronaviruses trapped in our mucous   …

Bodyguards
See this article to read    what to eat … and how much … to get superb doses of Vitamin C.

https://yucalandia.com/2020/04/10/improved-coronavirus-covid-19-protection-by-consuming-vitamin-c/

= = = =
Now do we see how so many people on Cruse Ships … and on Aircraft Carriers .. get infected. .. and on airplanes … where the air is recirculated & pumped around us, over and over and over … ?

USS Roosevelt

Yet … WITH a superb well-sealing medical-grade mask .. we inhale a harmless dose of just 0.002 COVID coughs by inhaling 5 minutes of contaminated-air when 10 ft from the infected loud-talker.

SO…. to reduce your risks to just 0.002 COVID coughs … for even 5 minutes of breathing in infected-indoor spaces

GET A GOOD medical-grade mask … that protects you on every inhalation.

Don’t Mark Your Calendars … Don’t Look to the Heavens …. You ~Won’t~ see a Truly Occult Event …

April 18, 2020

SATURDAY … in the park …

MAY 16 … 2020

Mark your calendars for a really fun event … to  enjoy … as millions of people will be out looking into  sky..    trying to see … ~this~ … faux News … imagined image.

BASED ON A BBC REPORT:
Fun hoaxers are claiming that on May 16, 2020 … Venus, Jupiter and a crescent Moon will   ~ magically~   align and look like a smiling face looking down on us,  it’s supposed to be a “quite a rare astronomical phenomenon”   … and that it’s even hoak-ily called an occultation .

Can you say …  “Fake News” ?

Why?  …. Venus, Jupiter and the Moon will be in entirely different parts of the night sky on May 16, 2020.

= = = =
The worst lies are embroidered with lots of details … to suck people in.
It did not happen in 2008 … nor is it an occultation.   (Occultations are defined as when one celestial object is hidden by another.)


REAL Occultations
   are a fun kind of celestial event … like when the moon is positioned between Earth and Venus –   with Jupiter lurking in the background …

If it does happen at some point…
you might see  one eye being  …  more twinkly …   than the other.**
= = = =
Real Science…

** ~ Why   could  ~ “one eye   be    more twinkly    than the other ~  ???

It’s due to regular    “wavy” … rhythmic … partial-thermal lensing effects    in our sky’s atmosphere,   ( not due to the inherently-random “turbulence” that Lucy’s & Physicists incorrectly insist on ) …

Instead …. Think   wavy    rhythmic    atmospheric air molecules,    dancing,     waving … between you & far-off dim Jupiter.

Yes … Physicists & other theoretical    Know-it All’s … love parrot the old saw:

Only stars twinkle …

= = = =

Lucy bossing people
Just like Lucy …  older brothers… and older sisters …  & physicists …
abusing   their perpetually-younger brothers   … like Linus  …

= = = =
All the   Lucy’s   of the world …  love to   ~proudly ~ announce:
“Planets do not twinkle … ”

and  then,   they opine …

… THAT’s how you can tell the difference between a planet and a star …

= = = =
But just like   bossy-Lucy   …   insisting that everybody   must believe    what she imagines …

Instead …
In the real world …  (versus  artificial  Physics-land ) …
People who actually look at the sky,

…. Know     that some planets    twinkle   

despite what years of Know-It-Alls  have told us about “Stars twinkle … Planets don’t

= = = =

Why?

Why look for Jupiter “winking” at us … on May 16’th  ??

When   Jupiter   & Saturn    lie lower in our skies … nearer the horizon …      rhythmic partial-thermal lensing   (NOT random-turbulence)  … rhythmic partial-lensing   from rising warm air   in our atmosphere … briefly   deflects   (re-directs)    the dim light rays from Jupiter & Saturn     off to other angles    …  for the person next to you see …

Heat rippling over asphalt road
Rhythmic partial thermal lensing (due to rising heated air)   moving the light beams

…  is  exactly  the same as watching the “heat waves”  ripple in the air … above a hot asphalt road …   that bends & distorts … and ripples what we see ….

So  yes,     Charlie Brown …
It is sometimes  best    to ignore     the loud-bossy  Lucy’s  of the world …

because what think you see … might actually be real …

regardless of what Lucy is telling you.

…  Because  rhythmic    partial-thermal-lensing    … by hot rising air …

… doesn’t even need a hot-asphalt road …    to create a little wonder & mystery …

heat riplling bridge


and yes … Linus …

That   “twinkling”  effect     from warm air    rhythmically  gyrating  the light we see    is not       the random, swirling  “turbulence” that Physicists, Engineers & other Lucy’s  insist on    …

Instead,  there are many kinds of  various real wold events….    that real scientists enjoy … including    rhythmic  partial-thermal lensing ….   and         twinkly   PLANETS   !!

COVID-19 Risk Updates … and Solutions for Getting Back to Work

Here’s a fun graphic that shows just what scientists know…. versus so many people’s ~wonderfully creative~ imaginations:

Notice how VERY DIFFERENT our typical immune system responses CHANGE with age.

Notice  … whom we need to protect … and why.

Age effects on COVID

Science … versus creative adult imaginations … 😉

Immune system responses – and humans ability to fight disease & ability to STOP disease transmission … change dramatically with age.

Notice that young children have very little immunity and VERY LOW IMMUNE RESPONSES to new pathogens, new infections.

Notice that 64 very young children in New York are now very sick,  with bizarre symptoms… including heart failure…  https://www.nbcnewyork.com/news/local/15-nyc-children-sickened-with-rare-covid-related-illness-here-are-the-warning-signs/2404162/

Why?
Their young immune systems require literal YEARS of “training” … being exposed to a variety to pathogens … to develop . Notice how kids, and even teens get so many frickking colds… while us healthy adults go years without a cold.

Our immune system responses also varies widely by COUNTRY & region … Notice how as the world’s economic development increases, puberty occurs at younger ages, and this contributes to an increase in the incidence of cardiovascular diseases and hormone-related cancers – DRAMATICALLY AFFECTING immune system responses with age of the person…

= = = =

~ There are real   solid   factual reasons that the Govt. wants us to wear masks.

Why?

COVID-19 Causing Serious Strokes in Young People with NO Prior Stroke Risk

April 29, 2020

In advance of a New England Journal of Medicine publication … NPR is reporting …  ~ 7X higher rates of stroke for young people between ages 30 – 40 ~ .

The doctors of NY CIty’s Cedars Sinai hospital are reporting that COVID-19 is causing young people to have serious strokes … even though none of the patients had any indicators of any prior stroke risks.

This is particularly troubling, because they found far too many young people (not just a trivial anectodal number of serious brain debilitated stroke victims) who are suffering 7X times more SERIOUS BRAIN DEBILITATING strokes … in HEALTHY young people who should not have any significant stroke risk at all.

They did not see it until now … because their findings are a look back at prior months of stroke cases in their hospital, happening since the onset of COVID-19 in NY City. … a look backwards at patients … which also reveals SERIOUS blood clots in the kidneys and lungs of young people.

https://www.npr.org/sections/health-shots/2020/04/29/847917017/doctors-link-covid-19-to-potentially-deadly-blood-clots-and-strokes

and
https://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMc2009787

(Note that the letter to the NEJM  was just a preliminary communication by the Cedars Sinai doctors.  Also note that the data we report above are more complete (per the authors)… and the information above is a part of an upcoming pending NE Journal of Medicine research article report.)

Because young people are now experiencing serious blood clots in major organs, the doctors believe that COVID-19 disease not only attacks nose, lung & throat lining cells … but that COVID-19 disease has ALSO been attacking the linings of our blood vessels … creating serious clots.

For further context:
Just last week,  a report in the British medical journal, the Lancet, also described how the cells lining our blood vessels are now being attacked by COVID-19 disease.

It is particularly troubling when we COMBINE these latest    very troubling facts    (facts that medical doctors are just now paying attention to )… with the further fact that very young people,  particularly teens are suffering from serious COVID-19 complications.

Apparently    teen vaping … teen huffing … and teen smoking are also causing serious COVID-19 health complications.

So… REMEMBER  that    COVID-19 is primarily transmitted by modes that
“Social Distancing”…   hand washing … and   “sanitizing everything”  have almost NO EFFECT on.

“Social Distancing” … hand washing … and   “sanitizing everything”    do not affect   the highest-risk, most-infectious, PRIMARY mode of catching COVID-19 …

The CDC has been quietly reporting to Doctors and hospital staff:

The highest-risk,  most-infectious way of catching COVID-19   is by breathing ~  inhaling invisible fine mists of highly-infectious fine aerosols from people talking indoors. “

After just one COVID-infected patient talks indoors for just 7 minutes,  they can emit – spew  over  167 COVID-coughs worth   of the nastiest, highest-risk, most-infectious invisible COVID-19 fine aerosols …  and that those fine aerosols persist, highly infectious,  indoors  … for the next 4 – 5 hours.

These nastiest invisible mists of COVID-19 aerosols then   swirl  and circulate out to 30 feet from where the infected person was talking… which means

Medical Doctors previous months of advice … don’t work.

“Social Distancing”  does nothing to protect us from the highest risks of catching COVID-19.

Hand Washing and “sanitize everything” … do nothing to protect us from the highest risks of catching COVID-19.

sneezed droplets

This means … no going out to ANY public indoor places
… for the next 6 months to a year…  (when-if we get a good vaccine) …. unless you wear a good medical-grade mask.

ONLY a GOOD  medical grade mask can protect you at the grocery store,   at the mini-mart or OXXO,   and even at work indoors…

Email us at steven.m.fry for details on how to get a good proven ultra-high efficiency medical-grade mask for between $4 ea  (large orders)  and $12 each (small orders).

medical workers in masks

and yes, these masks are comfortable,  made of soft surgical barrier cloth … and are gently hand-washable up to 70 times … for up to 7 months of light use.

WHO Studies Show We get NO Significant Immunity to COVID-19

April 27, 2020

” The UN World Health Organization (WHO) has warned that there is currently   no evidence    that people who have recovered from COVID-19 and have antibodies are protected from a second infection. “

When getting an disease .. leaves us with no real immunity … no effective antibodies … then it’s like cutting your finger…

Just because you cut your finger once, does not mean you will ~magically~ never cut your finger again.

Consider how Dengue Virus … keeps re-infecting the same people, over & over & over … for decades…

as the Dengue Virus symptoms get much worse with every new re-infection.

THAT’s TERRIFYING news to us scientists – because it means that there is no “herd immunity” being formed …

and it means that all the people who took risks… and got COVID-19 … can go out across the USA … and get COVID-19 … AGAIN…. and spread it to yet more people

for months … and months … and months… until there are COVID-19 vaccines.

as the US States send people back into the public indoor areas … without effective medical-grade masks.

GET A superb medical grade mask… to protect yourself over the coming 6 – 12 months of continuing COVID-19.

Map of COVID-19 Cases Around Merida

April 27, 2020

What do you think?

To us,  it looks like a map of who is moving around … and who travels.

COVID Map of Merida

Affluent people in North Merida … and Gringos in the Gulch (Santiago – Santana) … fit the pattern of people traveling being the highest level spreaders …

as they go around without good masks (preferring their stylish masks) … They catch Coronavirus, and then they go out into Oxxo’s, grocery stores, and other indoor places … TALK …

as their talking spews lots of invisible mists of the most-infectious , highest risk invisible fine aerosols that linger inside their stores, banks, and any indoor space that they talk in.

= = = =
The message from this data?

If you are going out… get a good medical-grade mask … that works.

CFE’s COVID19 Emergency Electricity Rate Changes

April 19, 2020

Per an April 17’th CFE & Federal Govt. of Mexico announcement:

Se estima necesario que durante el período que se mantenga vigente la declaratoria de emergencia sanitaria por causa de fuerza mayor genera por el virus SARS-CoV2 (COVID-19), no se considere el consumo de energía eléctrica realizado por los usuarios del servicio doméstico […] así como permitir la permanencia de dichos usuarios en una tarifa de bajo consumo (1, 1A, 1B, 1C, 1D, 1E y 1F)”, establece el Acuerdo.

During this period of the declared National health emergency …  because of the force majeure conditions, caused by the SARS-CoV2 virus (COVID-19) …  Domestic home-owner electricity high consumption (DAC) usages will not be “charged”  for their excessively high (DAC) consumptions.  […] There will also be a “stay”  (stoppage)   – holding-maintenance-stabilization  of high-energy user’s rates,  keeping them in the low consumption rate categories (1, 1A, 1B, 1C, 1D , 1E and 1F)”, per the formal Agreement between CFE and the Gobierno de Mexico.

Con ello, los usuarios domésticos no pasarán a la tarifa de Servicio Doméstico de Alto Consumo (DAC) aunque rebasen el límite de consumo mínimo, es decir, que durante el periodo indicado, se les se les continuarán aplicando las tarifas 1, 1A, 1B, 1C, 1D, 1E y 1F, según corresponda.

This will prevent domestic users from going to the Domestic High Consumption Service (DAC) rate even if they exceed the minimum consumption limit, i.e. that during the period indicated, they will continue to be subject to rates 1, 1A, 1B, 1C, 1D, 1E and 1F, as applicable. “

“El acuerdo especificó que durante el periodo “no se podrán realizar reclasificaciones a la tarifa DAC a los usuarios de servicio doméstico de energía eléctrica”.

La CFE no cobrará más a usuarios que excedan su consumo de luz durante el aislamiento por COVID-19

Through the agreement published in the evening version of the Official Gazette of the Federation (DOF), the Ministry of Finance and Public Credit (SHCP) determined that the measure will be effective between March 30, 2020 and up to seven calendar days after end the coronavirus emergency. “

= = = = = =
In simple language: Mary Maas explains (from FB):
“The notice is for the entire country (published in the official record), and is in effect from March 30 until six days after the emergency state is lifted. It says that CFE will not reclassify users who are in the domestic use tarifs 1A, 1B, 1C, 1D, and 1E ( which inclues Yucatan) from their domestic tariff to the domestic high consumption (DAC) tarif based on their usage during the emergency.”

Yet one more time … Mary Maas’s good addition  …   ~ ROCKS THE HOUSE ~

Don’t Mark Your Calendars … Don’t Look to the Heavens …. You won’t see a truly Occult Event …

April 18, 2020

SATURDAY … in the park …

MAY 16 … 2020

Mark your calendars for a really fun event … to  enjoy … as millions of people will be out looking into  sky..    trying to see … ~this~ … faux News … imagined image.

BASED ON A BBC REPORT:
Fun hoaxers are claiming that on May 16, 2020 … Venus, Jupiter and a crescent Moon will   ~ magically~   align and look like a smiling face looking down on us,  it’s supposed to be a “quite a rare astronomical phenomenon”   … and that it’s even hoak-ily called an occultation .

Can you say …  “Fake News” ?

Why?  …. Venus, Jupiter and the Moon will be in entirely different parts of the night sky on May 16, 2020.

= = = =
The worst lies are embroidered with lots of details … to suck people in.
It did not happen in 2008 … nor is it an occultation.   (Occultations are defined as when one celestial object is hidden by another.)


REAL Occultations
   are a fun kind of celestial event … like when the moon is positioned between Earth and Venus –   with Jupiter lurking in the background …

If it does happen at some point…
you might see  one eye being  …  more twinkly …   than the other.**
= = = =
Real Science…

** ~ Why   could  ~ “one eye   be    more twinkly    than the other ~  ???

It’s due to regular    “wavy” … rhythmic … partial-thermal lensing effects    in our sky’s atmosphere,   ( not due to the inherently-random “turbulence” that Lucy’s & Physicists incorrectly insist on ) …

Instead …. Think   wavy    rhythmic    atmospheric air molecules,    dancing,     waving … between you & far-off dim Jupiter.

Yes … Physicists & other theoretical    Know-it All’s … love parrot the old saw:

Only stars twinkle …

= = = =

Lucy bossing people
Just like Lucy …  older brothers… and older sisters …  & physicists …
abusing   their perpetually-younger brothers   … like Linus  …

= = = =
All the   Lucy’s   of the world …  love to   ~proudly ~ announce:
“Planets do not twinkle … ”

and  then,   they opine …

… THAT’s how you can tell the difference between a planet and a star …

= = = =
But just like   bossy-Lucy   …   insisting that everybody   must believe    what she imagines …

Instead …
In the real world …  (versus  artificial  Physics-land ) …
People who actually look at the sky,

…. Know     that some planets    twinkle   

despite what years of Know-It-Alls  have told us about “Stars twinkle … Planets don’t

= = = =

Why?

Why look for Jupiter “winking” at us … on May 16’th  ??

When   Jupiter   & Saturn    lie lower in our skies … nearer the horizon …      rhythmic partial-thermal lensing   (NOT random-turbulence)  … rhythmic partial-lensing   from rising warm air   in our atmosphere … briefly   deflects   (re-directs)    the dim light rays from Jupiter & Saturn     off to other angles    …  for the person next to you see …

Heat rippling over asphalt road
Rhythmic partial thermal lensing (due to rising heated air)   moving the light beams

…  is  exactly  the same as watching the “heat waves”  ripple in the air … above a hot asphalt road …   that bends & distorts … and ripples what we see ….

So  yes,     Charlie Brown …
It is sometimes  best    to ignore     the loud-bossy  Lucy’s  of the world …

because what think you see … might actually be real …

regardless of what Lucy is telling you.

…  Because  rhythmic    partial-thermal-lensing    … by hot rising air …

… doesn’t even need a hot-asphalt road …    to create a little wonder & mystery …

heat riplling bridge


and yes … Linus …

That   “twinkling”  effect     from warm air    rhythmically  gyrating  the light we see    is not       the random, swirling  “turbulence” that Physicists, Engineers & other Lucy’s  insist on    …

Instead,  there are many kinds of  various real wold events….    that real scientists enjoy … including    rhythmic  partial-thermal lensing ….   and         twinkly   PLANETS   !!

Talking Aerosols … Let’s Get the Maya Ladies Sewing Again !

April 18, 2020
I received a curious email late last night … from a person fussing that $50 DHL express shipping from Yucatan to the USA just seemed “too high” … unreasonable.

= = = = = = =
Dear Friend …

Rather than worrying about $50 shipping seeming “too high” for 7 masks for me & my husband … Can you consider just one … of 7 paradigm shifts:

1. Consider the shipping to be both a useful step (like in a set of steps) … and it could be a bolt cutter that cuts~breaks the chain of COVID 19 infections … going beyond just protecting you.

Instead of just buying a few for your self… consider using that same $50 shipping cost to ship 50 … and ~give~ 40 to your local nursing home personnel … who likely do NOT have any decent masks … and certainly none of this medical grade mask’s high efficiency special surgical barrier cloth filters.

When we put a superior mask on a nursing home medical staff person, each mask can protect 12 – 20 elderlies from the nursing home staff person from bringing COVID 19 into the home, from the workers travels around town – back home … and then back in to work doing that most critical work of helping our precious elderlies.

Donating those 45 medical grade high-efficiency filtering special masks … to the key nursing home people …. can protect all several hundred residents of the home, by breaking just one link in the chain of COVID-19 transmission … by keeping both the nursing home workers safe, and the elderlies safe … 24 – 7 for 2 months.

and… you pay just $4 each for each of the 50 masks (just $200) … and reduce your shipping cost per mask to just

$1 a mask… 
In that case … you just protected 200 nursing home residents .. for just about $1.50 each. 

Image may contain: 1 person, standing and indoor

2. A second paradigm shift:

That same $50 shipping can be both… a bolt cutter that cuts the chain of COVID 19 infections … and a lever ….

The same $50 shipping could also ship 200 masks … simultaneously lowering your shipping cost per mask down to just 50 cents…. and you pay just $4.50 total per mask (versus $16 each for buying just 7)

… to put superb masks on 4 different nursing home’s personnel …. and then, your $50 shipping .. levers you into protecting 800 elderlies in 4 nursing homes for just $1 dollar a resident …. for less than $1000 total.

 

3’rd Paradigm shift:

That $850 total spent for 200 superior masks … to protect 800 elderlies for 2 months …. is far less than the cost of treating one sick elderly … for one day of Covid-19

 

4’th Paradigm shift:

We define ourselves …. and we define our society by our actions ~ Especially how we act in a crisis ~ … We define our culture & society …. by how we treat others in a crisis.

Some people & some cultures get clannish and go into full-on bunker-mode… selfishly hoarding stuff … caring only for us & ours … effectively shunning “them”.

Some people get personally nasty … viciously snapping & sniping at other people … harshly judging… and snapping-at people they never even met.

Image may contain: one or more people and closeup

 

 

5’th Paradigm Shift

In times of crisis … some ~other~ people stretch grow and become so much more… (than the clannish hoarders – snapping at others).

Imagine 10’s millions of people across America …. stretching … to create the America we want …

 

 

and …. With that ….

We get to the heart of why I conceived this mask …designed this mask, got it produced by Maya women, who can now feed their extended families by sewing safely individually in their homes …. getting paid superbly as piecework… where each woman can literally make $1600 pesos a day sewing masks to protect 1,000 of needy pitiful Americans.

That’s why I worked over 540 hrs in just one month …. to create this opportunity for America & all of us …

to become who we really could be….

Image may contain: one or more people, people standing and outdoor

 

6’th Paradigm Shift:
I also set this up …. “Talking Aerosols”  … with 40% of profits going to help the neediest people … putting masks on poor nurses … where again, a single well-placed mask, protects 10 – 20 people (back to breaking the chain of infection, to protect the nurses extended family sheltering back home) … and profits that are used to help & protect Yucatan’s poorest people & poorest elderlies.

=> Donating 100’s of Masks to the horribly under-supplied and under-funded Mexican govt’s public hospitals providing 100’s of masks for Mexican doctors & nurses so far to 4 hospitals who have none.

and

The 7’th Paradigm Shift…

We donate more masks than we sell …

… using the profits & donations from others … to masks on those who need them most…. changing the world for the people who have no voice … for the people who have no resources, let alone having no leverage …

Can you use your lever … of the $50 shipping…. to literally help 1,000’s … by protecting Mexican Doctors, Nurses & Mexico’s really desperate elderlies ?

Image may contain: one or more people, hat and sunglasses

= = = =

In that reality

Our little group: called “Talking Aerosols” … a group of just 7 … me and 6 wonderful Maya ladies sewing …. We have currently donated over 6800 masks, while selling less than 6000.

… Do you now see why I worked so long & so hard (18 hr days for 30 days straight) …. to make this possible?

Still Afraid to Touch Things ? … Coronavirus ~ COVID-19 Realities

April 14, 2020

For people still afraid of    touching things
… Consider the 3 following realities of supposed touch-smear transmission … versus   talking     (vibrating vocal cords)   generated … highest-risk   respiratory fine aerosols.

… Were all the risks … all the millions of transmissions…. just like the choir … just like aircraft carrier … just like on all the cruise ships …. and just like the 17 yrs of SARS-CoV-1 research has shown… caused by   mainly generated by    ordinary talking ….   or were the millions of exploding transmissions   due to fearful people’s claims of    supposedly touching things …. ?

Notice that even the CDC has changed their tune…  finally reporting that the PRIMARY mode of spreading COVID-19 :
” (COVID-19)  spread is by primarily by asymptomatic infected people simply breathing,   and talking,  ”

https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/hcp/infection-control-recommendations.html

Once the patient has been discharged or transferred, HCP, including environmental services personnel,     ~ should refrain from entering the vacated room ~   until sufficient time has elapsed for enough air changes to remove potentially infectious particles ~

(more information on clearance rates under differing ventilation conditions is available).

After this time has elapsed, the room should undergo appropriate cleaning and surface disinfection before it is returned to routine use.

https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/hcp/infection-control-recommendations.html#adhere

= = = =
Remember,  just 5 minutes of loud talking => 104 coughs coughs worth of highly infectious fine aerosols… trapped inside – floating …. slowly circulating …. a swirling infectious invisible mist … for 4-5 hrs … persisting  ~after~ the talker left the room

Oh MY !
Then remember …. These fine aerosols are only STOPPED by wearing a superb mask.

= = = =
1’st Really Troubling Example:
At just one single, loud, choir practice   very-early in the COVID-19 outbreak:
~ 45 singers infected … out of 60 singers
… from just ONE COVID-19 infected asymptomatic spreader… at a church choir practice in Washington

… EVERYONE used hand “sanitizing” gel as they entered… no shared music … and there was ~NO TOUCHING~ allowed …

~ Note that hand sanitizer is not going to save you from the toxic talking-aerosol mists. ~

Just loud vibrating vocal cords from singing … making easily 80,000 of the most infectious fine aerosols … from just ONE asymptomatic spreader. … Toxic fine aerosols breathed in by all the young people in the choir…

… No coughing … No sneezing … NO TOUCHING…

4 dead now …

Why? … Because the fine aerosol toxic-talking    invisible mist … persists highly-infectious for 4-5 hours indoors … and gradually swirls out up to 30 ft indoors …

~ Note that    “Social Distancing”     cannot save you   from the toxic talking-aerosol mists. ~

https://www.latimes.com/world-nation/story/2020-03-29/coronavirus-choir-outbreak

= = = =
2’nd  Troubling  Example:
How can we ignore …  the YOUNG HEALTHY 550 US sailors on the USS Roosevelt aircraft carrier … all   …. now very sick    from COVID-19 coronavirus?

Do we really believe that   550 of our  young,   best,    robust,    highly-disciplined,    highly-monitored servicemen & women…   somehow   ignored  the rules on hand washing & hand sanitizing??

or … Were they breathing shared-air in below decks cabins & rooms … where just one asymptomatic spreader    ~innocently~  TALKING for just 7 minutes  … fills the room with over 10,000 highest-risk … highly-infectious fine aerosols … an invisible toxic mist that floats & swirls  … invisible & dangerous … for the next 4 – 5 hours …. trapped indoors.

USS Roosevelt Crew Stricken by Coronavirus

USS Roosevelt

= = = =
3’rd Troubling Example:
Remember all the Cruise Ship passengers … trapped in their closed cabins … breathing shared-air from the neighboring rooms, big common shared ventilation systems.

Notice that on pretty much every Cruise Ship with Coronavirus Outbreaks    … it only took  1  infected asymptomatic spreader … talking … infecting others through his invisible but highly infectious fine aerosols … lingering … and spreading … highly infectious fine aerosols persisting 4-5 hours in the air that the infected person ~innocently~  talked into.

Do we really believe that the 70% infection rates from COVID-19 Coronavirus on Cruise Ships    happened … because people somehow touched things, WHILE TRAPPED IN THEIR CABINS ?

Do we really believe that ship’s kitchen staff were so clumsy, touching things without washing hands …. licking their fingers … sneezing on the food & plates (not)   … magically caused the continuing devastating Coronavirus spread among the quarantined passengers … stuck in their cabins …

or…
Do we believe the top Epidemiologists who say that    there has NOT BEEN EVEN ONE CASE   of someone catching COVID-19   from food prep,    nor from touching food containers ??

Not one proven case from food prep or touching food containers.

but   1
0,000’s of cases   proven transmissions   by  Respiratory Aerosols … from TALKING.

= = = =
Were all the risks … all the millions of transmissions…. as Coronavirus EXPLODES, despite CDC advice ….    Were the millions of transmissions from “touching things”   or  ….

Have they been  just like the choir … just like aircraft carrier & Cruise ships … and just like the 17 yrs of SARS-CoV-1 research has shown… The PRIMARY transmission (96%?) comes from fine aerosols mainly generated from talking…

… Just 5 minutes of loud talking => 104 coughs coughs worth of highly infectious fine aerosols…

Fortunately…. Almost ALL of these highly-infectious fine aerosols    from talking    can be STOPPED by wearing a superb mask.

Why not wear a home-made mask? … or Cheap mask? … or  3D Printer fake-N95 mask?
We breathe in as many as 4000 highly infectious fine aerosols   ~with every breath~ through a CHEAP MASK … or fake-N95 3D printer mask … or homemade mask ….   just from stepping inside a closed room, where just one infected asymptomatic spreader, talked for just 7 minutes… 3-4 hours ago.

Remember…. 10,000 highly infectious fine aerosols … from just 7 minutes of a loud talker…
lingering as an invisible mist … 4 – 5 hrs later…

 Putting it into different words…

Would you give   (donate)   to someone you love … a car with almost no brakes … ?

The   (home*made mask)   free car    goes fast     and looks really good

… but … with no brakes… it has really ugly consequences … when we need to stop.  ”

choir practice COVID-19


People in Mexico, Canada, USA    and anywhere DHL ships … can get  superb medical-grade masks …  re-washable up to 70 times … by sending me an email   steven.m.fry@gmail.com

Please describe where you are,  where you need the masks,  what sizes,  and how many you need-want.

Fighting Coronavirus ~ COVID-19 Protection by Staying Well Hydrated… Our First Line of Defense

April 10, 2020

After 3 months of giving completely wrong, hazardous, too-often-fatal advice … the CDC has finally changed it’s tune…

“…  coronaviruses spread is thought to occur mostly from
person-to-person via respiratory droplets  ”

Click to access caring-for-patients-H.pdf


Aerosol scientists, 17 yrs of SARS-CoV-1 and the last 2 months of SARS-CoV-2 scientific testing, and top Virologists have all been saying the the PRIMARY risk from catching Coronavirus (COVID-19) is from breathing in fine aerosols from coughs, sneezes, & talking … These fine respiratory aerosol droplets ( ≤ 1 um diameters) from … infected Asymptomatic Spreaders talking without a mask … float around inside rooms … as a swirling invisible mist … with over 90% infectious potency after 3 hours …

These fine aerosols, primarily produced by talking … are the particulate-aerosols-droplets MOST easily breathed deep into our throats & lungs … going right through homemade masks & leaky flat masks …. (that leak 4000 aerosol particulates out of 10,000 total from someone talking in a room in the room during the past 4 hrs without a mask) … prove the risks of inhaling fine droplets ≤ 1 um in size.

Side Note:
A good mask filter material only leaks 3 out of 10,000 of these most risky fine aerosol respiratory droplets that the CDC warns about  … while an N95 mask leaks 500 of them.

https://yucalandia.com/2020/04/08/coronavirus-update-how-to-avoid-or-prevent-your-most-risky-exposures/

~ Stay well, stay informed, stay safe. ~

So … What is an ordinary person to do … besides getting a fine high-function mask?

Seriously …   Think of an old-time castle …  and the layered Castle-defenses.

1. The moat (a good mask) blocks general entry … makes it difficult for invaders to get at the 2’n & 3’rd lines of defenses.

2.  A GOOD STOUT WALL … aka  the mucous layer in your nose throat and lungs …  Keep it healthy, robust and strong… because that mucosal coating traps the virus particles, and temporarily blocks the Coronavirus from getting to target – mucosal lining cells underneath the mucous layer. **

3.  Have a robust set of peak levels of Immune System compounds, waiting in the mucosal layer (protected by Vitamin C) …   Superb levels of:  Antibodies & Lymphokines and Immune System defense cells: Macrophages,   Killer-T Cells (T-Lymphocytes),    Dendritic Cells,    White Blood Cells (Basophils & Eosinophiles)   …. the key defensive components of our immune system, that attack and destroy the Coronaviruses  … ready to RUMBLE, and take out the inhaled respiratory aerosol Coronaviruses … 

https://yucalandia.com/2020/04/10/improved-coronavirus-covid-19-protection-by-consuming-vitamin-c/

**4.  Have your nose, throat, & lung’s mucous layer system running at peak efficiency!

That means having ….  ~ Thin watery mucous ~ …. coating your lungs, throat & nose … as your SECOND line of defense (behind your mask)

How do we get   “thin watery mucous” ?
… Drink enough fluids until your pee is clear or only light straw color, to keep your mucous thin & runny …

Why do we want   “thin watery mucous” ?
Because there are 10’s of millions of the cilia in your mucosal layer (10’s of millions little sweeper cells)   ALL beating in unison … waving, whipping…. to sweep the virus particles out of your  throat & lungs … to go past your epiglottis… and fall into your stomach to die immediately in the acidic low pH 2, due to stomach acids.. 😉

So,  “thin watery mucous”   allows the little sweeper-cilia cells to sweep the Coronavirus fine particulate aerosols… down into our stomach … to be destroyed by our stomach acid.
😉

Rowers

Since the PRIMARY mode of Coronavirus (COVID-19) transmission is inhaling respiratory aerosols …   Keep drinking,  till your pee is clear… or only light-straw yellow color … to keep those sweepers, sweepin’…

and keep those immune system components … on deck … ready to rumble… when the virus hits.
😉

Improved Coronavirus ~ COVID-19 Protection by Consuming Vitamin C

April 10, 2020

Eating Enough Vitamin C to Keep Your Immune System at Peak Efficiency
During times of stress … and during Coronavirus spreading .. We need a daily consumption of 500 mg – 1000 mg. total of vitamin C … split into at least four (4) … 125 mg doses …. each about 4 hours apart.   Taking a single Vitamin C supplement pill in the morning just doesn’t work, because we pee out ~eliminate through urination~… the Vitamin C about 4 hrs after eating it.

500 mg – 1,000 Vit. C a day is necessary during stressful times to protect your already stress compromised immune system,  specifically higher levels of Vit. C throughout the day … to protect our highly-important immune compounds ~ responses that fight Coronaviruses …

By taking enough Vit. C,  the Vitamin C acts a “body-guard” molecules throughout your body to protect critical … Antibodies & Lymphokines and Immune System defense cells: Macrophages,   Killer-T Cells (T-Lymphocytes),    Dendritic Cells,    White Blood Cells (Basophils & Eosinophiles)   …. the key defensive components of our immune system, that attack and destroy the Coronaviruses  … But note…. These immune system components need protection, by their own body-guards, so they don’t get ruined before they can do their job.

Bodyguards

Sadly, all of these critical immune system components are all damaged or ruined by the consequences of viral attacks on our nasal, throat, & lung lining (mucosal lining) cells. When the virus causes the death of our mucosal layer cells … the dying cells lyse (apoptosis) and split open, releasing lots of nasty free-radicals, nitric oxide & harmful oxidants…   chemicals that damage or wreck our immune system’s Antibodies & Lymphokines and Immune System defense cells.

To protect these most important immune system components, they need a powerful-but-proven-safe anti-oxidant “body-guard” molecule, like Vitamin C. … Vitamin C reacts within nano-seconds to neutralize the free radicals, oxidants & nitric oxide & cell death products => protecting our critical Immune System components, allowing them to do their jobs of killing viruses & bacterial invaders.

Why eat Vitamin C?
Only 2 kinds of creatures on earth need to eat dietary Vitamin C … Primates ( including Humans) … & Red Vented Bul-bul birds (and other birds). …  Why? … All other animals evolved to make it themselves,   but because we primates have evolved over millions of years, with lots of fresh fruits & veg in our diet, we don’t make it ourselves… and we must EAT Vit C every day …. Pigs make their own Vitamin C, Goats, Cats, Dogs make their Vitamin C…. but we have to eat FOODS CONTAINING Vitamin C, about 4 times a day.

Red Vented Bulbul bird

~ Stay well, stay informed, stay safe. ~

Four (4) doses of Vitamin C @ 125 mg per dose, requires the following amount of foods, 4 times a day.

Servings (as cups) every 4 hours of Vitamin C …  Vit C Content …. mg / serving
10 cups – Apple (manzana) = 12 mg. (1 cup raw)
12 cups – Avocado (aguacate)=10 mg (1 cup raw).
1½ cup -Brocoli = 81 mg (1 cup raw)
1¼ cup – Cabbage (repollo) = 93 mg. (1 cup raw)
2 cup- Cantaloupe (Melon Chino) = 57 mg (1 cup serving)
2/3 cup- Chaya 180 mg (1 cup serving)
… a super-food with 7 g protein, 300 mg Ca, 10 mg iron,1357 units Vitamin A, (1 cup raw)
2½ cup – Grape fruit (toronja)= 50 mg (whole)
1/3 cup of Guava (guayaba)= 373 mg (1 cup raw)
1½ cup – Kiwi = 93 mg (1 cup raw)
3 -Lemon = 44 mg (whole)
4 – Lime (Limon)= 30 mg (whole)
2 cup – Mango = 60 mg (1 cup raw)
2 – Orange (Naranja) = 58 mg (whole)
1 cup – Orange Juice (Jugo de Naranja) = 125 mg (1 cup)
2/3 cup- Pepper (pimiento rojo)= 190 mg (1 cup raw)
1¼ cup – Pepper -Green Chile (spicy) (ChileVerde) = 109 mg (1 cup raw)
1¼ cup – Papaya = 100 mg (1 cup raw)
1½ – cup – Pineapple (Piña) = 78 mg (1 cup raw)
2 cup – Potato (Papas) (Microwaved) = 72 mg
1¼ cup – Strawberry (fresa) = 100 mg. (1 cup raw)

Again, these portions are eaten about 4 times a day, to maintain good Vit C levels to fight the Coronavirus.

NOTE: Boiling any of these reduces Vitamin C by at least 50% … Microwaving preserves most Vit C.
