Discerning Narratives

10/25/2021: Discerning Narratives: Narratives are common to American life disguising the facts or truth. Therefore, narratives must be recognized and recognized for what they are. This exercise requires careful discernment and examination. Independent of the topic the following is true. A narrative as commonly used today is a concept yet to be examined but must be put into practice. They are typically based upon presumption intended to be enforced or put into practice. The dictionary definition of narrative is: noun; a spoken or written account of connected events; a story; an account, tale, chronicle, portrayal, rehearsal. I particularly like the synonym of “rehearsal”. The “rehearsal” moniker says the ideas are without credible foundation and therefore should not be ready for prime time. A narrative is typically proposed as in the best interest of those it would affect. The advocates of a narrative must know it does not make sense and without foundation, yet advancing the narrative as though based on established evidence which of course is absent. That is the reason a narrative is put forth as an edict without accepting a critique or challenge. These factors should expose a narrative. A narrative is not even a hypothesis. The hypothesis definition is: noun; a supposition or proposed explanation made on the basis of limited evidence as a starting point for further investigation; theory, theorem, thesis, conjecture, supposition, speculation, assumption, presumption, notion and or a contention. In philosophy a proposition is made as a basis for reasoning, without any assumption of its truth. In science, the hypothesis is an idea that proposes a tentative explanation about a phenomenon or a narrow set of phenomena observed in the natural world. The notion of the scientific hypothesis as both falsifiable and testable was advanced in the mid-20th century by Austrian-born British philosopher Karl Popper. Let us consider narratives at best a hypothesis. Let us be kind to those proposing a narrative and ask them to consider their proposal nothing more than a hypothesis, a supposition or proposed explanation made on the basis of limited evidence as a starting point for further investigation.

Helping India

“May 5th, 2021 To Whom This May Concern: My Name is Jacqueline Nguyen, Pharm.D and I am the CFO of QYK Brands, a US manufacturer of infection prevention products based in California. I am reaching out to you to bring some attention to our Mission to Help India. With the explosion of COVID-19 infections in India over the past few days, we at QYK Brands initially pledged to donate 2 million units ($10 MILLION in value) of our much needed disinfectant wipes approved to kill the COVID-19 virus. Sadly we had a problem fulfilling that pledge as we lacked the means to transport our products to India. At that point we reached out to our local ABC News affiliate, and they featured our ask for help. (ABC7 News Article Link) What followed after the coverage is quite an amazing story of humanity and an evidence of the power of the news media. Following the news coverage, several companies reached out to us and pledged what they were able to donate on their part, from 2 Million medical gowns to 2 Million N95 respirators and even oxygen concentration systems. So far, we are finalizing two cargo planes that have been donated to carry all these products to India and distribute them to everyone in need, but we need more. This highlights not just the power and the positive presence of the news media, but also how everyone comes together in a humanitarian crisis to help in any way they can. With a worsening level of crisis through a second wave in India right now which has even impacted our immediate family, we have taken it upon ourselves to do more and we have increased our donation by 10 Million Units of dry wipes. With this in mind we want to make a request to individuals, businesses and US government agencies to help join in the effort with QYK to make the finished products and step up to help India and to do that we need your help to spread the message. So far only LARGE corporations have been extending a helping hand to India but with the proper media outreach, millions of SMALL businesses, individuals, non-profit organizations or the US government can surpass those donations. We know of many companies and individuals who entered into the PPE business at the onset of the pandemic due to the severe shortage of PPE supplies. At that time thousands of businesses both small and large, sprung into action and began sourcing PPE products to supply to hospitals and the government. This led to the PPE market getting oversaturated with products and currently there are countless businesses and hospitals sitting on VAST amounts of unused PPE” “QYK BRANDS, LLC | 12101 WESTERN AVE, GARDEN GROVE, CA 92841 |1-833-795-7664 | www.qykcares.com” “which can help India significantly. We know that with your call for help those businesses and hospitals will have the heart to help and would gladly donate their products and supplies. What India still needs right now are: ● Oxygen concentrators ● Portable Oxygen Tanks ● PPE like medical gowns and coveralls ● Disinfection & Infection prevention products ● Medicines (Basic medicines are being sold in the Black market for 10 to 100x the actual price) ● Portable Beds ● And the most important thing of all is we need Cargo Planes to transport all these supplies to India as quickly as possible. We are hopefully nearing the end of the pandemic in the US, but the situation in India is extremely scary and hundreds of lives are being lost every hour. The gravity of the situation is massively under reported and people over there NEED IMMEDIATE HELP!!! The Indian Government is doing as much as they can to help but we must all collectively do our part and provide as much assistance as possible for the sake of humanity!!! In response to the COVID-19 crisis in India we have launched www.QYKcares.com. We humbly request individuals and corporations to visit the site and donate whatever they can. Their 100% generous donations will go to help India and will most definitely lead to lives being saved.” “Jacqueline Nguyen CFO QYK Brands 858-776-2566”

New patent published

4/9/2021: US 10,959,969 was published on 3/30/2021. It is the patent for use of protocatechuic acid to treat COVID19. Now looking for partner to translation to clinical medicine. Major Pharma has a conflict of interest and does not want a cure as it would shut down their profitable vaccine business. I will wait and be persistent, hoping for a partner.

2nd Patent for COVID19

2/20/2021: Just one year ago, I learned about COVID19. In this year I devoted to research and development of protocatechuic acid for the treatment thereof. Pretty amazing in one year, using independent contract laboratories I now have 2 US patients. Last week I was notified that the 2nd patent application was accepted and will be published. This addressed the use of protocatechuic acid spray on hands, masks, and other hard surfaces. Now working on commercialization. Since it will be labeled a sanitizer, no prior FDA approval is required. However the label or advertisement cannot say it makes a diagnosis or treats or mitigates any disease. The label simple states good for health or promotes such. see: www.sprayawaydoa.com

More about Face Masks

1/16/2021: The President elect following “best practices” and CDC “guidelines” has insisted that all Americans were a face mask for the first 100 days he is in office. In reality what is being mandated is to have every American were a mask that will collect and harbor virus and bacteria. It would be humorous if not so stupid and sad. Remember He is proposing we follow the “science”. In this case it is “political science” not medical. See some basic medical science at www.sprayawaydoa.com
