Are there really people who can contact the dead? If so what would make them to have the ability? Something different with their brain?

Are there really people who can contact the dead? If so what would make them to have the ability? Something different with their brain?

Leader dogs are way more effective than canes in most cases, because they think! the dog will keep his or her companion out of harm's way. A cane can notify the user of obstructions and help in ambulation but can't stop someone from walking into traffic! ...Read more

What can you do if the villagers have ebola, and what can you do to keep others from getting it?

What can you do if the villagers have ebola, and what can you do to keep others from getting it?

Supportive care: Ebola has no cure or meaningful treatment other than to provide support to failing systems until the person recovers. The patient must be place in a level 4 isolation to prevent spread.
