  • China says it has a ‘zero-tolerance policy’ for racism, but discrimination towards Africans goes back decades

    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.

  • Conversion therapy is now officially banned in Calgary

    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.

  • NFL wants to combat diversity problems with data system in Rooney Rule expansion

    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 Plans New Rule To Combat ‘Toxic Behavior’

    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.

  • The ‘Liberal Leaning’ Media Has Passed Its Tipping Point

    Turns out people do not want to pay for propaganda.

  • Sorry, media: You’re not victims no matter how much ‘abuse’ you take

    When you make your money selling drama, fear, and conformity, do not be surprised when people push you aside.

  • Galaxy disk observed to have formed shortly after the Big Bang

    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.

  • Proposed bill would ban microtargeting of political advertisements

    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.

  • Japan May Have Beaten Coronavirus Without Lockdowns or Mass Testing. But How?

    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.

  • Coronavirus uses same strategy as HIV to dodge immune response, Chinese study finds

    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 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.



  • Safety, tolerability, and immunogenicity of a recombinant adenovirus type-5 vectored COVID-19 vaccine: a dose-escalation, open-label, non-randomised, first-in-human trial

    Soon to be mandatory, if you want a job and a house outside the ghetto.

  • Swedish antibody study shows long road to immunity as COVID-19 toll mounts

    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.

  • The Pandemic Is Exposing the Limits of Science

    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.

  • Vitamin D determines severity in COVID-19 so government advice needs to change, experts urge

    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.

  • America’s CDC and 11 States Erroneously Conflated Two Kinds of Coronavirus Tests

    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.


  • WHO warns of ‘second peak’ in COVID-19 infections

    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.

  • Belgium will not return to tough lockdown: minister

    “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.

  • The CDC’s New ‘Best Estimate’ Implies a COVID-19 Infection Fatality Rate Below 0.3%

    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?

  • COVID-19 not very infectious 8 days after symptoms occur, Winnipeg study suggests

    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.

  • Lockdown saved no lives and may have cost them, Nobel Prize winner believes

    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.
