Wilderness Heart Attacks: When There’s No Perfect Choice


by James Hubbard, MD, MPH

Many years ago, my wife and I were in Arizona to attend a conference. We had several hours to kill until the first meeting that night, so I decided we’d make a quick trip to the Grand Canyon.

I Never Email Requests for Personal Info. Buzzmyfx Is Cloning Sites

Please know that hundreds of sites, Coke, CNN, this one, have been cloned, duplicated, whatever you want to call it, with “buzzmyfx” written between the site name and the .com. Don’t click on these sites. I’m not sure what the crooks are up to (maybe hoping searches will pick them up?), but if you have received any dubious email from me, or anything where I ask for personal info (credit card, etc.), please don’t provide it, and let me know so I can pursue it further. Another thing they might be trolling for is signing up for my newsletter at their site, instead of mine, to get addresses. My newsletter provider, Aweber, says they’ve seen no evidence but, again, be careful the address at the top of your page you’re looking at has no extra letters in it, buzzmyfx, or otherwise.

Why Do Some People Snap?

by James Hubbard, MD, MPH


What are the traits of violence? The hints before someone snaps? Ah, if only we knew, we could prevent massacres like Newtown from occurring. Or could we?

Back in 2008, I published one doctor’s take. Here’s the link. I thought it would be a good time to look back and see how right he was. And what we can add to his traits. And even if we identify a potentially violent person, what can we do?

I’d like to get your comments and suggestions. It might mean the difference in life and death in survival situations.
