    If we look at China today, it has an uncanny resemblance with the pre-World War 2 Germany of Hitler from a perspective that is rarely considered while analysing the cause of this maddest of all wars that humanity ever saw. What makes the World War 2 really interesting is that it actually came from a trajectory of The Great Depression of 1929. As the west was reeling under a financial crisis in a post-World War 1 world, each nation was facing the typical problem of unemployment and sinking income of people. When Nazis came to power in 1930s Germany was...

  • 'The world went crazy' with lockdowns, says Sweden's Coronavirus expert as he blasts WHO for 'misinterpreting data' to brand his country as one of 11 nations seeing a 'resurgence'

    Sweden's top virus expert has said the 'world went mad' with coronavirus lockdowns which 'fly in the face of what is known about handling virus pandemics'. Anders Tegnell, who advised Sweden to avoid full lockdown in favour of a 'herd immunity' strategy, said world leaders caved to political pressure amid panic - and that the crippling economic downsides of lockdown will far outweigh the benefits. Sweden has confirmed 68,390 cases of coronavirus and 5,230 deaths - far above its Nordic neighbours, but its economy is intact and actually posted slight growth in the first quarter of this year. Tegnell also...

    Milton, a professor of environmental health at the University of Maryland who studies how viruses are transmitted, has helped lead a group of 239 scientists who wrote an open letter to appeal for better recognition of the potential airborne transmission of coronavirus. They dont want to talk about airborne transmission because that is going to make people afraid, he said. Theres also an element of worry that if people think the virus is airborne, theyll stop doing other things they need to do to prevent transmission, such as washing hands, staying apart and cleaning surfaces. There is significant potential for...

Morrison also encouraged businesses to move to his country. We are a great immigration nation, the prime minister said. The move comes in response to a...

    What has happened to Iran over the past four decades? Back in 1976, Iran was at the height of its glory after nearly two centuries. As a close ally of the U.S., the only friend of Israel in the region, and a prosperous nation with the eighth largest economy in the world, Iran was poised to surpass many European countries by the year 2000. At the time, Irans innovative educational system and literacy programs were the envy of the world. Its economic and military prowess were a huge source of stability in the region. And yet, the then U.S. administration...

    BEIJING - As schools reopened in China after the COVID-19 outbreak, they have thrown themselves into a nationwide exercise to remove books deemed politically incorrect, deepening Chinese President Xi Jinpings push to instil patriotism and ideological purity in the education system. A directive from the Ministry of Education last October called on elementary and middle schools to clear out books from their libraries including illegal and inappropriate works. Now teachers have removed books from schools in at least 30 of mainland Chinas 33 provinces and municipalities, according to a Reuters review of social media posts, publicly available school and local...

Now, it may have to temporarily lay off thousands of workers, and thus potentially bring immigration to a near halt from its already painfully slow crawl.

    I quickly learned that many patients with advanced COVID-19 disease bore none of the hallmarks of severe respiratory illness until they suddenly collapsed and died. ... [A] study from Wuhan, China, describes pathological lung changes on CT scans of completely asymptomatic patients. Asymptomatic carriage is not uncommon in other virulent infections, such as MRSA and C diff, but what is striking with SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19) is that it may be accompanied by underlying organ damage. The researchers found lesions consistent with inflammation of the underlying lung tissue (ground-glass opacities and consolidation, to use the medical jargon), which...

    Research was omitted from landmark paper claiming natural origin of SARS-CoV-2. Report: Claire Robinson Chinese and US scientists have been collaborating for years in dangerous gain-of-function experiments that involve genetically engineering coronaviruses from bats and other animals, as revealed by a series of scientific publications.
