What is a Moment?

I found the short film below to be very moving as director, William Hoffman
attempts to share his vision of the answer to that question:

Radiolab provides the music.
Music by Parachutes: "Where Were You?"

Presented by WNYC Radiolab.

From the "ABOUT" section of the Radiolab site:
"Radiolab believes your ears are a portal to another world. Where sound illuminates ideas, and the boundaries blur between science, philosophy, and human experience. Big questions are investigated, tinkered with, and encouraged to grow. Bring your curiosity, and we'll feed it with possibility."

I don't know the link Erik. However, my SIL is DR. and also affiliated with Homeland security in his sate.

My daughter informed the other day that they were all advised to have at least 8 weeks of non-perishables and their freezer stocks.

The reason is in fact they expect the outbreak to be much worse than what is being reported and there is not enough vaccine to cover the pandemic they truly are expecting to hit.

So I for one am stocked and plan on stocking more next week. Each person should be have enough food on hand to stay at home for at least 8 weeks.

Normally I would just say this is a scare tactic and a little over the top. But, the source is a good one and I am heeding the warning on this one.
