A matter of time..

With all this talk about world peace, there isn't a whole lot of describing what it will be like, look like, feel like.  I mean, will we still listen to rock & roll?....I think we'll be playing it as loud and as often as ever.  That goes for all kinds of music.  We'll just dance more often.  Can you imagine getting along with everyone as well or better then your best friend.  Some will say they don't want to be best friends with half the people here....to those of you that feel that way, that is what you need to get over.  If you don't feel you can, then the rest of us will have to love you into changing your mind.  I imagine everyone waking up with a smile and enjoying every day.  No money.  Everyone knows what we need...we'll share and do our part.  There won't be a problem with drugs because people won't want to escape reality like that.  Love and kindness makes great relationships, great relationships solve and prevent harmful habits.  I imagine everyone absorbing the beauty of where we are and how we got here.  I imagine a lot of overwhelmingly good feelings.  Love is contagious, peace will happen.  When it does, I'm sure there will be good things happening that we can't really imagine now.  This is what I believe and I love you all.

Antimicrobial resistance is a growing threat to good health and well-being

Antimicrobial resistance is growing worldwide, rendering many "work horse" medicines ineffective. Without intervention, drug-resistant pathogens could lead to millions of deaths by 2050. Thankfully, companies like Pfizer are taking action.

  • Antimicrobial-resistant pathogens are one of the largest threats to global health today.
  • As we get older, our immune systems age, increasing our risk of life threatening infections. Without reliable antibiotics, life expectancy could decline for the first time in modern history.
  • If antibiotics become ineffective, common infections could result in hospitalization or even death. Life-saving interventions like cancer treatments and organ transplantation would become more difficult, more often resulting in death. Routine procedures would become hard to perform.
  • Without intervention, resistant pathogens could result in 10 million annual deaths by 2050.
  • By taking a multi-faceted approach—inclusive of adherence to good stewardship, surveillance and responsible manufacturing practices, as well as an emphasis on prevention and treatment—companies like Pfizer are fighting to help curb the spread.

Now, there's an assisted-suicide pod so chic and so stylin' that peeps (young people still say peeps, right?) are calling it the "Tesla" of death... it's called... the Sarco!
