    We are facing an overwhelming army of deadly, invisible enemies. We need a plan - before it's too late. Unlike natural disasters, whose destruction is concentrated in a limited area over a period of days, and illnesses, which have devastating effects but are limited to individuals and their families, infectious disease has the terrifying power to disrupt everyday life on a global scale, overwhelming public and private resources and bringing trade and transportation to a grinding halt.

    The influenza season is just getting started in the United States, and it already promises to be more severe than usual. Hospital emergency rooms are filling up with flu sufferers, and pharmacies have reported medicine shortages. Twelve children had died as of last month. To make matters worse, in Australia, which experienced its flu season four to six months ago, the current vaccine appeared to be only about 10 percent effective against this year’s dominant strain.

    "We’re Not Ready for a Flu Pandemic" is from the January 08, 2018 Opinion section of The New York Times. It was written by Michael T. Osterholm and Mark Olshaker and narrated by Kristi Burns.

    In Journey into Darkness, Douglas profiles vicious serial killers, rapists, and child molesters. Some of the unique cases Douglas discusses include the Claremont killer, the schoolgirl murders that became known as Canada’s 'trial of the century', Richmond, Virginia’s first serial murderer, and the double homicide of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman. With Journey into Darkness, Douglas provides more than a glimpse into the minds of serial killers; he demonstrates what a powerful weapon behavioural science has become.
