Rebecca Jung, RN, BSN was attending Texas Tech University with a major in Geology when she decided that nursing was her calling. She was managing a veterinary clinic at the time, and had fallen in love with the science and healing. Shortly thereafter, she moved home to north Texas and attended nursing school at Weatherford College.

After graduating with honors, Rebecca took her Associate of Applied Science in Nursing to Long Term Acute Care. Working with the critically ill patients of this population taught her not only the basics of nursing, but how compassion and strength are needed as well. Rebecca moved to Houston, Texas and received a job in the Texas Medical Center.

Still working in Long Term Acute Care, she specialized in Transplant nursing – heart and lung transplants mostly – and expanded her nursing experience exponentially. Utilizing her now expanded knowledge base, Rebecca applied for and received a promotion into Transplant Case Management.

During this time, she also attended school at University of Texas at Arlington and completed her Bachelors of Science in Nursing. Having completed research courses as part of the curriculum, Rebecca fell in love with Research Nursing. She was recommended for the position of Program Coordinator for a research program her hospital was launching as a sub-cohort of a grant from CMS. Rebecca soon found herself managing a major research grant with a focus on Sepsis early detection and intervention. She initiated and created training for employees and physicians, and assisted with the development of a Sepsis protocol for her hospital system.

Being on the forefront of the new Sepsis awareness in healthcare, Rebecca has helped develop simulation scenarios for sepsis education, refined research protocols to better patient outcomes, as well as formulate a data analysis of lives saved through the program, as well as cost savings from early intervention of sepsis. Rebecca feels that in the time she has spent on the Sepsis grant, she has helped save more lives than she ever could as a bedside nurse. She is currently in the process of expanding the Sepsis program to the rest of her hospital system’s campuses in the Houston area. Looking forward to Graduate School, Rebecca hopes to receive her MS in Nursing Education and eventually teach nursing someday.

A New Low in Mask Studies

 
 
 You may have thought the CDC’s loathsome propaganda, designed to spread misinformation to their partners in the purposefully susceptible media, was bad. And it most certainly was.

Their repeated attempts to justify masking through poorly conducted studies throughout the first year and a half of the pandemic, which covered Arizona, Kansas and others, were equally atrocious.

But now a new challenger has emerged, attempting to take the crown of most insidiously incompetent “study” to be released on masking.

And it’s already being shared and promoted by the anti-science crowd, determined to maintain their illusions that masking works and shows demonstrable benefits.

It’s a masterpiece of bad “science,” poor methodology, and purposeful misdirection.

There is no possible justification for anyone to refer to this “review” with anything other than derision, except that one of the world’s most prominent “experts” has already distributed it to his massive following.

It’s important to debunk studies like this, because it’s inevitable that some corporate executive, CDC official, or local school administrator will use it to justify their endless, panicked mandates. 

The Abstract

What’s remarkable about this review is that the authors discredit their own work almost immediately.
