Andy Schectman, proprietor of Miles Franklin, one of the nation's largest bullion dealers joined us. He experienced a massive surge in business during February and March. This resulted in huge premiums of $10 per ounce for silver and nearly $100 per ounce for gold. And Andy assures us that we ain't seen nothing yet. With social unrest reaching new heights and massive stimulus racking the value of the dollar, he's expecting a surge of new demand after the summer holiday. This will lead to record prices and extreme shortages. The time to buy is now. Just send Andy an email to andy@milesfranklin.com and he will match any bullion price you get from anyone out there. And remember Miles Franklin is licensed and regulated by the State of Minnesota, the only such company in the nation. Get ready for tough times and don't forget to stock up on food, guns and ammo. Good luck!

Dr. Ted Noel joined us today. He's written an article about wearing masks and Covid. Masks have become an article of faith rather than science. The real question is, do properly used surgical masks reduce disease spread in the general public?  To say there are almost no data would not be overstating the case.  When households with sick kids were examined, even rigorous mask-wearing provided no statistically significant improvement in adult infections.

Let's put that in plain English.  Even if you did everything to protect yourself with surgical masks, even keeping it on when your kid wants to see your face, it might reduce your chance of getting sick, but we can't prove it.  And that's in a well designed study intended to get a meaningful result.  "[H]ousehold use of face masks is associated with low adherence and is ineffective for controlling seasonal respiratory disease" (emphasis added).

What about homemade cloth masks?  In a study using influenza, masks made from cotton T-shirts "should only be considered as a last resort to prevent droplet transmission from infected individuals."  They were only one third as effective when worn by the sick person as a surgical mask.  If you're sick, they're better than nothing, but that's not much.  The CDC says, "Cloth face coverings may slow the spread of the virus and help people who may have the virus and do not know it from transmitting it to others."  Translation: It mighthelp, but we don't have any data to back that up.
