Masking The Truth?

Important! What kind of mask are you wearing?
"If work requires you to wear a mask, OSHA requires that your employer verifies you are receiving a minimum of 19.5% oxygen level by law!"
Here’s more mask info from a poster “Jim” in response to an article re: face masks: “ I don’t really know WHY OSHA hasn’t come forward and stopped the nonsense BUT wanna cover kinds of masks:
• N95 masks and masks with exhale ports
• Surgical masks
• Filter or cloth masks

Okay so upon further inspection OSHA says some masks are okay and not okay in certain situations.

If you’re working with fumes and aerosol chemicals and you give your employees the wrong masks and they get sick you can be sued.
• N95 masks: are designed for CONTAMINATED environments. That means when you exhale through N95 the design is that you are exhaling into contamination. The exhale from N95 masks are vented to breathe straight out without filtration. They don’t filter the air on the way out. They don’t need to.
Conclusion: if you’re in Stewart’s and the guy with COVID has N95 mask his COVID breath is unfiltered being exhaled into Stewart’s (because it was designed for already contaminated environments, it’s not filtering your air on the way out)
• Surgical Mask: these masks were designed and approved for STERILE environments. The amount of particles and contaminants in the outside and indoor environments where people are CLOGG these masks very Very quickly. The moisture from your breath combined with the clogged mask renders it “useless” IF you come in contact with COVID and your mask traps it You become a walking virus dispenser. Every time you put your mask on you are breathing the germs from EVERYWHERE you went. They should be changed or thrown out every “20-30 minutes in a non-sterile environment”
Cloth masks: today three people pointed to their masks as the walked by me entering Lowe’s. They said “ya gotta wear your mask BRO,” I said very clearly “those masks don’t work bro, in fact, they MAKE you sicker” the “pshh’d” me.
By now hopefully, you all know CLOTH masks do not filter anything. You mean the American flag one my aunt made? Yes. The one with sunflowers that looks so cute? Yes. The bandanna, the cut-up t-shirt, the scarf ALL of them offer NO FILTERING whatsoever. As you exhale you are ridding your lungs of contaminants and carbon dioxide. Cloth masks trap this carbon dioxide the best. It actually risks health. The moisture caught in these masks can become mildew ridden overnight. Dry coughing, enhanced allergies, sore throat are all symptoms of a micro-mold in your mask.
Summary:
  • N95 blows the virus into the air from a contaminated person.
  • The surgical mask is not designed for the outside world and will not filter the virus upon inhaling through it. Its filtration works on the exhale. (Like a vacuum bag it only works one way)
  • Cloth masks are WORSE than none!!!!
If your mask gives you security, wear it, just know it is a false sense of security.
==============================
If work requires you to wear a mask, OSHA requires that your employer verifies you are receiving a minimum of 19.5% oxygen level by law!

Are your oxygen levels being monitored while at work? Are you experiencing dizziness and headaches?

This is a written law NOT a recommendation!

I guarantee if employees started citing law and demanding their employers follow the law then the masks would go away!”

I Love AYA - FREE Black History Month Curriculum Installment: We're a Winner Lesson w/ Curtis Mayfield

I Love AYA. Parents, teachers, students here's another FREE AYA Educational Institute installment for your BHM curriculum stash. Often overlooked as part of Black history and BHM education are our people's organizations and movements. Too often this month is filled with instruction about “The first Black to do this, and the first one to do that." In addition to being too "prove-it-to-white-people focused, it is also too focused on individuals. Today we take a different path. Using our call and response tradition, we focus on the impact of our people's movements had on music, and in turn the effect of our music to invigorate the Black Power movements in its various forms. We're a Winner: O ur lesson started with "We're a Winner" by Curtis Mayfield. Me: Not only does Curtis Mayfield encourage and affirm Black people he also exhorts the required level of commitment needed to win. Assignment: "Listen

Sweet Black Love - Nature or Nurture?

What kind of romantic love do you create when you’ve been shaped by community love? What turns you on about a man or woman, when the community has turned out for you? Is attraction simply a matter of individual biology and natural instinct, or does the community’s touch help you interpret the intimate touch? AYA’s 2017 - Community Love Honorees - Gerry and Celeste White may be best qualified to answer this age-old nature/nurture paradox. Gerry is an Assistant Professor at the Clark Atlanta University (CAU) Whitney M. Young School of Social Work and Owner of PES Consulting. Celeste is an author and Instructor in Sociology and Criminal Justice @ CAU. They've been married for 24 years. Gerry: "When I was in Jr. High school there was a major race riot. Some white boys tried to jump me. My brothers weren’t having it. My neighborhood wasn’t havin’ it. The next thing I know, there are police dogs and everything. I was in the Malcolm X movement, and just after high schoo
