Fear-bola, Take 3.

CarnivalEcstasy

The is not the Carnival Magic. It’s another Carnival ship that I recently photographed.

In the past few days, I’ve read quite a bit about Ebola in the “news”, pretty much all of which reinforced my already-low opinion of “professional” news reporters. While there are a (very) few reporters who actually try to do a good job of getting the facts, the majority of the coverage of the Carnival cruise on which a healthcare worker who “might have been exposed to Ebola” was at best sheer speculation. At worst, it was National Enquirer style whole-cloth fabrication. Continue reading

Water is more important than food.

You can go without food for several weeks. In fact, there is some evidence that for many of us, a lengthy fast may do more good than harm.

You can go without water for only a few days before you become very ill, and only a few days past that point before you die of dehydration. And if you end up having to get your water from open puddles like the one shown at the top of this post, that might be even worse than no water at all. Continue reading
