“After he got out, he physically resisted officers. Officers were able to get the suspect into handcuffs and noted he appeared to be suffering medical distress. Officers called for an ambulance,” according to the statement.
Minneapolis Police Chief Medaria Arradondo said at a press conference Tuesday that the FBI will lead the investigation into the incident due to the possible civil rights violation.
Diversity: it will eat up your nation with infighting, and leave nothing remaining.
Conscious decoupling continues.
The major driver of positive investor sentiment is the reopening of the U.S. and global economies, said Jason Benowitz, senior portfolio manager at the Roosevelt Investment Group Inc. in New York.
“Reports of economic activity, while still terrible compared to three months ago, have begun to get less bad as compared to the prior month. This suggests the economy has bottomed and may be starting to rebound off its lows,” Benowitz said.
Another take: the rejection of the media narrative means more stable markets because people will no longer be quite so easily manipulated.
It was taken down following a copyright claim over four seconds of footage contained in the film.
Prior to its removal, the video had accumulated more than 8 million views.
Produced by Moore and written, directed and produced by Gibbs, Planet of the Humans made the contentious argument that green energy sources, such as wind power and solar power, are ultimately unsustainable.
When the Left want something taken down from social media, they just mass-complain about it. Works like a charm, even with something high-profile like this film.
Perhaps this reflects a growing lack of confidence in China.
She was walking her dog Monday while Christian Cooper (no relation) was bird-watching at a wooded area of Central Park called the Ramble. They both told CNN the dispute began because her dog was not on a leash, contrary to the Ramble’s rules, according to the park’s website.
The incident is being pointed to as another example of white people calling the police on African Americans for mundane things.
“I videotaped it because I thought it was important to document things,” Christian Cooper said. “Unfortunately we live in an era with things like Ahmaud Arbery, where black men are seen as targets. This woman thought she could exploit that to her advantage, and I wasn’t having it.”
Never apologize. Sounds like he provoked this episode.
“Mitchell cited stress from COVID-19 concerns as the precipitating factor for the unprovoked attacks,” police said in a news release.
“These species are weird and wonderful and there is nothing like them on Earth,” said Rikki Gumbs of ZSL’s EDGE of Existence programme and Imperial College London.
He said the analysis reveals “the incomprehensible scale of the losses we face if we don’t work harder to save global biodiversity”.
Good point, and let us save human biodiversity as well by ending diversity.
As nature tires of humanity, the asteroid of death will return.
Is anything not fake anymore? It is like ideology took over, then image took over, and now everything is fake, a void of quality beneath a slick surface.
This is how democracy signals it is ready to attack: it calls you Hitler, which in our view is indefensible and therefore, we can pretend to be victims while assaulting someone else.
Control = force everyone to do the same method at the same time, therefore making everyone “good” without having to be good; natural = let people sort themselves out. It is foolishness to try to “fix” what nature has done; we can only keep the good, send away the bad, and move forward.
After the 2019 season, only one of five vacant head coaching slots was filled by a minority coach – Ron Rivera in Washington. According to research complied since 2009 by Arizona State University, the NFL has never had more than eight minority head coaches, while white coaches represented as many as 28 (in the 2013-14 season).
Among the changes team owners approved on Tuesday is increasing the number of candidates who interview for head coaching jobs. Teams will now be required to speak with two minority candidates. They’ll also have to speak with at least one minority candidate for all coordinator and executive positions.
Costs passed on to the consumer, tedium increased, and resentment intensified. We keep trying to make diversity work, thinking that just because we want something, nature should accept it. In reality, this is just our inner Captain Ahab wanting more to feel a sense of power and to believe that he is “right” than being willing to understand, accept, and work with the patterns of his world.
Wikipedia is as bad as the rest of FAANG Big Tech companies for centralizing the net and using that position to control information. Now we get more new rules which will be used to remove Right-wingers and let the Leftist propaganda flow. The Left must be quite desperate.
Turns out people do not want to pay for propaganda.
When you make your money selling drama, fear, and conformity, do not be surprised when people push you aside.
Neeleman et al. used the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA), one of the most powerful radio telescopes in the world, situated in the Atacama Desert in northern Chile. The researchers detected light emitted from cold gas in a galaxy from around 12.5 billion years ago. By resolving the light to a scale of 1.3 kiloparsecs (about one-sixth of the distance from our Sun to the centre of the Milky Way9), they were able to examine the structure and kinematics of the emitting gas in impressive detail. They then used simple but robust analytical models to show that their observations are consistent with the presence of a rapidly rotating gas disk, spatially coincident with the galaxy’s stars and dust.
We are still in the infancy of knowledge, but this is fairly impressive.
Internet-based advertising has been a boon for both political campaigns and disinformation campaigns, which love to take advantage of the ability to slice and dice the electorate into incredibly tiny and carefully targeted segments for their messaging. These ads—which may or may not be truthful and are designed to play very specifically on tiny groups—are incredibly difficult for regulators, researchers, and anyone else not in the targeted group to see, identify, analyze, and rebut.
Break a country up into special interest groups, and soon you have no sense of an “objective” or “universal” truth shared by the whole audience, which means that people get niche propaganda to cajole them into voting for whoever has the bucks to successfully manipulate them. Democracy is just an interface to business.
While the central government has been criticized for its slow policy steps, experts praise the role of Japan’s contact tracers, which swung into action after the first infections were found in January. The fast response was enabled by one of Japan’s inbuilt advantages — its public health centers, which in 2018 employed more than half of 50,000 public health nurses who are experienced in infection tracing. In normal times, these nurses would be tracking down more common infections such as influenza and tuberculosis.
Slamming borders shut and tracing the infected works better than watching your economy slow burn from within your lockdown bunker.
Both viruses remove marker molecules on the surface of an infected cell that are used by the immune system to identify invaders, the researchers said in a non-peer reviewed paper posted on preprint website bioRxiv.org on Sunday. They warned that this commonality could mean Sars-CoV-2, the clinical name for the virus, could be around for some time, like HIV.
This is why I call it “covAIDS” sometimes. See also the T-cell report:
The clinical trial will evaluate if a drug called interleukin 7, known to boost T-cell numbers, can aid patients’ recovery.
They have looked at immune cells in the blood of 60 Covid-19 patients and found an apparent crash in the numbers of T-cells.
In a microlitre (0.001ml) drop of blood, normal healthy adults have between 2,000 and 4,000 T-cells, also called T lymphocytes.
The Covid patients the team tested had between 200-1,200.
All that research we did on HIV/AIDS may come in handy with coHIVid-19.
They will be given either hydroxychloroquine or a placebo for three months. At sites in Asia, participants will be given chloroquine or a placebo.
In a survey of over 2,500 people, almost half of those questioned endorsed to some degree the idea that “COVID-19 is a bioweapon developed by China to destroy the West” and around one-fifth endorsed to some degree that “Jews have created the virus to collapse the economy for financial gain”.
No one trusts the narrative. No wonder 5G towers are burning.
Nearly half of those surveyed expect to keep up these new hobbies, skills, and daily habits they’ve taken on after the lockdown restrictions are lifted. Learning new computer skills, creating podcasts, participating in online fitness classes and going for long walks are some of the new activities people have turned to as a new means to occupy their time.
Sounds like health. Jobs, schools, and red tape are jails that waste your life so bureaucrats can feel like gods.
The team combined Ivermectin — generally used for de-worming and as a treatment against head lice and scabies — with the antibiotic Doxycycline.
All 60 patients who received the treatment recovered, Dr Alam said.
In early April, a study reported that Ivermectin stopped the coronavirus from growing in cell culture within two days, according to the news agency.
But, as in some other parts of the world, the novel coronavirus outbreak has turned sentiment against foreigners, who have been accused of spreading disease, burdening the state and taking jobs as the economy plummets.
It is kind of fun watching diversity self-immolate in real time.
By comparison, when cases reached 100,000 in the WHO European region, deaths stood at more than 4,900.
Early analysis by the WHO suggests that Africa’s lower mortality rate may be the result of demography and other possible factors.
It noted that Africa is the youngest continent demographically with more than 60% of the population under the age of 25.
Might also be that they eat less processed food and spend less time in offices.
A Communist is just a “moderate liberal” in a hurry.
And somehow, it is always our job to fix it… by sending all of our spare cash and then some. Diversity is a shakedown.
Hint: it was not progress, then; it was merely a subsidy.
On Thursday, Vice reported on a Kentucky convenience store that put up a sign reading: “NO Face Masks allowed in store. Lower your mask or go somewhere else. Stop listening to [Kentucky governor Andy] Beshear, he’s a dumbass.”
The Right and Left live in different worlds, and want different types of societies.
Soon to be mandatory, if you want a job and a house outside the ghetto.
The number of COVID-19 patients in intensive care in Sweden has fallen by a third from the peak in late April and health authorities say the outbreak is slowing. However, Sweden has recorded the highest number of COVID-19 deaths per capita in Europe over the last seven days.
Since the start of the outbreak, citizens have struggled to get clear answers to some basic questions. Consider masks, for example: The World Health Organization said early on that there was no point in encouraging healthy people to use them, but now most doctors agree that widespread mask-wearing is a good idea. There was also confusion around lockdowns: In the U.K., scientists argued for weeks over the merits of closing businesses and keeping people at home — a quarrel that may have cost the country lives. And now that the outbreak is fading in Italy, there is growing debate between the country’s public health experts and doctors over whether the virus has lost strength or remains just as deadly.
And yet, the pandemic has reminded us that science — and medicine in particular — has limits. In a way, the last few months have resembled what occurred in the 2008 crisis, as economists fought over the right response to the crash. The academic community split between those who said the U.S. government should save all large banks and those who said it should let Lehman Brothers go bust. In Europe, the controversy centered around whether countries should pursue austerity or run large-scale budget deficits. These divisions, and the ensuing policy mistakes, dented economists’ reputation in the eyes of the general public.
The northern latitude countries of Norway, Finland and Sweden, have higher vitamin D levels despite less UVB sunlight exposure, because supplementation and fortification of foods is more common. These Nordic countries have lower COVID-19 infection and death rates. The correlation between low vitamin D levels and death from COVID-19 is statistically significant.
We’ve learned that the CDC is making, at best, a debilitating mistake: combining test results that diagnose current coronavirus infections with test results that measure whether someone has ever had the virus.
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott’s executive order allows bars to reopen at 25% of their normal capacity and restaurants at 50%. However, Houston Fire Chief Samuel Pena said via Twitter on Sunday afternoon that his department had addressed around 300 complaints of violation to the governor’s rules since Friday, adding that “admittance beyond approved capacity will cause events to be stopped until condition is corrected.”
Turner also said he saw photos and videos of people flouting the social distancing rules at crowded bars and packed pool parties over the holiday weekend. The mayor pleaded with businesses and customers to “be responsible,” noting that their behavior puts first responders at risk, too.
“We don’t want to be heavy handed,” Turner said at a press conference Sunday. “If you work with us, nobody gets closed down.”
People are sick of this stuff. Well, at least the extraverts are.
“If there was a second wave, then I think we will find ourselves in a different situation, namely with testing and tracing. But I think we can rule out that we will have to go back to the tough measures,” De Crem said.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the current “best estimate” for the fatality rate among Americans with COVID-19 symptoms is 0.4 percent. The CDC also estimates that 35 percent of people infected by the COVID-19 virus never develop symptoms. Those numbers imply that the virus kills less than 0.3 percent of people infected by it—far lower than the infection fatality rates (IFRs) assumed by the alarming projections that drove the initial government response to the epidemic, including broad business closure and stay-at-home orders.
Fraud, incompetence, or deep state maneuvering?
There was no viral growth whatsoever in samples taken from patients more than eight days after they became symptomatic, according to study findings published Friday in the peer-reviewed journal Clinical Infectious Diseases.
Another tentacle of the monster falls.
Michael Levitt, a Stanford University professor who correctly predicted the initial trajectory of the pandemic, sent messages to Professor Neil Ferguson in March telling the influential government advisor he had over-estimated the potential death toll by “10 or 12 times”.
Did we just waste the world economy for a Leftist tantrum? Maybe, but we got rid of globalism, faith in media, faith in “science,” and faith in diversity. We saw that we like life better without all the stupid modern stuff we do to keep occupied. We discovered actual life again. I would say COVID-19 was a solid win, even if it came through pain and suffering.
