  1. Not to confuse anyone this is NOT Northwestern University the fine academic university in Evanston, Illinois. He must of went to Northwestern Health Sciences University in Minnesota. I have no idea whatsoever if it is a good school for Chiropractic study. It may very well be, but it not affiliated with Northwestern University.
  2. What is an adverse event? This definition is taken from the National Cancer Institute: An unexpected medical problem that happens during treatment with a drug or other therapy. Adverse events may be mild, moderate, or severe, and may be caused by something other than the drug or therapy being given. Also called adverse effect. This pdf is from the University of California Medical School in San Francisco. This will give you all you need to know about AE’s. I would advise everyone to read this information so we can all have a more informed opinion of what
  3. We all believe what we want to believe that may fit our world view. Could it be this physician is denigrating the COVID vaccines and misrepresenting them because he has an anterior motive to sell his own "cures"? https://www.ftc.gov/system/files/warning-letters/fda-covid-19-letter-hotze.pdf I do not know about you but I would not go to a physician, whatever your views about homosexuality are if he can believe this. This is the opening paragraph about Dr. Hotze from an article in the Houston Chronicle: A prominent Houston Republican activist is making some stron
  4. I do not mean to contradict anyone here or the validity of this news article that is dated over 2 months ago. I think cultural factors based on the lives and suffering of many Russians as well as their overall distrust of their government can be attributed to this number. The article also states that only 27% of people believe in a Covid vaccine. The lowest in a poll of 27 countries. I do not know if they mean all Covid vaccines or just the Sputnik vaccine. I think it is difficult to determine as I believe this story was poorly written. I was a pharmaceutical representative for many ye
  5. I went to San Antonio to get my Pfizer vaccine. Both times the Doctors, Nurses, Paramedics and Volunteers could not have been nicer and more professional. Still wearing my mask and intend to keep wearing it whenever I am not in my home. Safety of all far supersedes personal freedom.
  6. I think you may be right because when I went on Amazon USA I could not find the N-95 masks either.
  7. I have to go back to the States on Friday and would really like to have an N-95 mask to wear on the plane. If I did not need to go I would definitely not be traveling. I will be getting a Covid test on Thursday. If anyone knows where I can purchase the N-95 masks I would greatly appreciate it. I would prefer them over the Chinese version I think those are called KN-95. I know they are pretty good but not as good as the N-95. Thanks in advance
  8. I am sorry but I know that this is not correct. My wife is Mexican and I lived in Mexico City for 4 years and have many Mexican friends and relatives. Not just my wife's family but I have two Mexican aunts. They ALL tip at gas stations. I have been with my Mexican family and friends in Nuevo Laredo, Monterrey, Mexico City, Toluca, El Oro and Cuernavaca and they always tip. I believe that they all tip 10 pesos but I can't be sure if that number is accurate with all of them. My wife and my brother's in law and my best friend in Mexico tip that amount.
  9. Yes Rick you are right and I made that common mistake. As I am challenged in so many aspects of life especially with computer and hand held devices I try to opt for the simplest and paths of least resistance as possible. My wife uses our Voice Over Internet Protocol. Never heard of that before but see I learned something today. She calls her sister in Mexico City on it. I think I have used that phone about 3 times in the last 8 years. It really comes in handy when she calls me when I walk the Camino de Santiago in Spain on my yearly pilgrimages. I get a Spanish SIM card and she can call me wit
  10. I was under the impression that Vonage just works with landlines. I went to the website and they said I could connect Vonage to my cell but I would need to use an access number: You can link your Vonage service to any mobile or landline phone number. When you make a call from the linked phone number, you must use an Access Number and your Security PIN to ensure you are billed at the same low rates as your Vonage home phone. I have a landline that works well with with my internet connection. It seems like this would be a hassle to use. But thanks for the information. Who knows what will tr
  11. I live in Riberas and AT&T does not work in my home. I had to switch ti Telcel. It works fine here in Mexico. My plan covers the United States and Canada also. I previously had AT&T in Bucerias before I moved to Riberas. I loved it. Within Mexico I would say they are about equal although when you get to really out of the way places Telcel's coverage is more expansive. Where AT&T was far superior in my mind was calling the States and Canada. It was much easier and I had a better signal calling friends and one daughter in the States and my other daughter in Vancouver. They also had n
  12. As a former pharmaceutical representative it is common to pay volunteers for their participation in drug studies. Yes it is often students and poor people who sign up as a means to supplement their income. My older daughter wanted to volunteer for the Moderna Phase 2 trials and I talked her out of it. I am not opposed to vaccines whatsoever and will get one when they are approved and I have read the study results. I just don't want my daughter being in the study. There is a case to be made regarding the risks of any participation, especially in vaccine study groups.
  13. Do you also offer the shingles vaccine? When I lived in Mexico City I was told by a doctor it was not available here. Is that still the case to your knowledge?
  14. New to the area and I have gotten some really good recommendations from some of you so thanks. I was just shipped an new battery for my MacBook Air. Do not want to attempt to install it myself. Can someone recommend a good computer guy who can do this. It is a really easy job. Thanks in advance.
