    In November 1940, days after the Nazis sealed 450,000 Jews in the Warsaw Ghetto, a secret band of journalists, scholars and community leaders decided to fight back. Led by historian Emanuel Ringelblum and known by the code name Oyneg Shabes, this clandestine group vowed to defeat Nazi lies and propaganda not with guns or fists but with pen and paper. The resistance effort against persecution and oppression during the Holocaust is a topic not specific to just the Jewish community but to all peoples globally, especially in current times.

    As the articles above state, this was the 5th lowest rainfall in the past 70 years. That means that at least four other times since 1950 it has been even drier. It happens. They didn't impose Climate Change surcharges previously, so this is a convenient way to hike fees and blame it on everyone else.

    It was a department store in the lower level of Multiplaza Mall in Panama City. We shopped there several times when visiting the mall.

    Ridiculous. Climate change does NOT force a surcharge. That is entirely the fault/responsibility of the ACP. What they are trying to do here is get the same amount of money by providing less service. Eventually they will price themselves out of the market, resulting in much hand wringing and crying. Look for solutions, build another lake, find out why the catch basins are not working efficiently, utilize ocean water more. It's not like there isn't enough water around, just that it is not the type that the ACP wants to use.

    Wonder if this means we can expect more lengthy electrical outages (as we had on Saturday, Sunday, and yesterday)? But then in the area where I live we don't need high winds to go without electricity. Yes, we do have a generator, and I know I am being negative.

    I sure hope this happens in Panama. I saw a Formula 1 race in Europe years ago and the energy and enthusiasm is beyond belief. But it is noisy, really loud and noisy.

    Important to read what side effects could be possible with the use of colloidal silver. The principle of "first do no harm" needs consideration before use : Mayo Clinic writes: "t's not clear how much colloidal silver may be harmful, but it can build up in your body's tissues over months or years. Most commonly, this results in argyria (ahr-JIR-e-uh), a blue-gray discoloration of your skin, eyes, internal organs, nails and gums. While argyria doesn't usually pose a serious health problem, it can be a cosmetic concern because it doesn't go away when you stop taking silver products. Rarely, excessive doses of colloidal silver can cause possibly irreversible serious health problems, including kidney damage and neurological problems such as seizures. Colloidal silver products may also interact with medications, including penicillamine (Cuprimine, Depen), quinolone antibiotics, tetracycline and thyroxine (Unithroid, Levoxyl, Synthroid) medications." Dr Brent A Bauer, M.D., Mayo Clinic. Dr Bauer is affiliated with Mayo Clinic's research on alternative medicine modalities. He spearheads research and is respected with regards to his contributions to new integrative approaches to the delivery of medicine. As a nurse of more than 50 years, I can confirm the use of silver compounds topically for serious burns in the hospital setting. Alison

    In every prison, the overwhelming source of contraband is smuggled in by the guards. For the situation in La Joyita to be this out of control, every guard had to have known.

    Science Digest was first published in January 1937[1] in an 8 x 5 inch digest size format of about 100 pages.[2] First edited by G.W. Stamm.,[1] it was targeted at persons with a high school education level.[1] It contained short articles about general science often excerpted from other publications in the style of Reader's Digest.[1] The headquarters of Science Digest was in Des Moines, Iowa.[3] In November 1980 the magazine was expanded to an 11 x 8 inch glossy page format with full-length articles and color pictures targeted at a college-educated reader.[2] The new version was largely the creation of its then editor Scott DeGarmo. It was issued bi-monthly with circulation of about 500,000 copies. At first it tended to favor breathless cover lines, and often turned to pseudoscience topics, including spontaneous human combustion and UFOs. Unable to compete with more serious publications, such as Discover and Omni, the magazine ceased publication in 1986.[4]

    Some very interesting comments about Boquete both in the Youtube video below and the associated public comments. My favorite: "Living in the Boquete area the past 8 years...let me tell you about the downside. ..... find a gated community with armed guards." I think I've visited every gated community here in Boquete over the years and I never recall seeing armed guards! **** Best Place to Retire in the World - Boquete Panama ( Growing Up Without Borders ) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PlwXNSUFVW0& ****
