For P.I.D. Radio #21, we offer some background into who we are. Our journeys have taken us down some strange roads and we firmly believe that we were brought together for a reason.

Sharon talked about her ability to sometimes see things that others can't, a gift that manifested itself very early in her life. This was at least partly responsible for her faith in God. Derek, on the other hand, has no such gift, and had to do a lot of sifting through evidence to decide what he believed.

We also discussed some items of importance in the news. In particular, keep an eye on China: Not only has the avian flu (H5N1) spread from the Qinghai Lake region to neighboring Kazakhstan and Russia, it may be spreading from human to human much more easily than the Chinese government is letting on. Be cautioned that news reports this weekend about the successful test of an avian flu vaccine aren't giving you the whole story. It is doubtful that it will be possible to produce enough vaccine to protect more than a handful against H5N1.

In addition, at least 38 people have died from what the Chinese government is calling a streptococcus infection carried by pigs. However, translated posts from public forums in China indicate that the death toll may actually be over three hundred, and emerging diseases specialist Dr. Henry Niman says the evidence points to a recombinant strain of Ebola.

The shuttle Discovery is now due to return tomorrow (8/9/2005). Pray for the astronauts' safe return.
