  • WHO reports largest single-day increase in Coronavirus cases; Oklahoma sees new daily record

    06/21/2020 9:09:39 PM PDT · by SeekAndFind · 78 replies
    The World Health Organization has reported the largest single-day increase in coronavirus cases by its count, at more than 183,000 new cases in the latest 24 hours. The UN health agency says Brazil led the way with 54,771 cases tallied and the US next at 36,617. Over 15,400 came in in India. Experts say rising case counts can reflect multiple factors including more widespread testing as well as broader infection. Overall in the pandemic, WHO has reported 8,708,008 cases — 183,020 in the last 24 hours — with 461,715 deaths worldwide, with a daily increase of 4,743. More than two-thirds...
  • VIDEO: Media Warns of Coronavirus Surge Ahead of Trump Tulsa Rally

    VIDEO Now that there will be a Trump rally in Tulsa with over 800,000 signed up to attend, the media has discovered that coronavirus is rising again. Of course, during the recent wave of protests with little to no social distancing that concern was pretty much absent. Oddly enough, the graph of the actual deaths from the virus as you can see paints a starkly contrasting picture to what is now being portrayed.
  • Monty Python and the Holy Grail movie must be banned.

    It is time. The movie "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" MUST be banned and removed from the internet, retail outlets, etc. We just can not stand for the implicit racism in the movie. King Arthur wishes to cross a stream (which could be easily crossed on foot up, or downstream) and is blocked by the "Black Knight" (this has to have been a futuristic representation of protesters by the creators of the movie). This character says "None shall pass!" (protesters blocking traffic) one too many times for King Arthur. Of course, a fight ensues. What is SO racist is...
  • Democratic States Deploy Greta Thunberg Drones To Lecture People Who Go Outside

    U.S.—Several Democrat-controlled states have released new Greta Thunberg surveillance drones into the wild to lecture people who go outside. The drones include a camera to catch people going outside and a screen playing a Greta Thunberg lecture. They fly along beaches and hover over parks, shouting and chasing off people who try to have a little fun or live without fear. "How dare you! You are robbing me of my dreams and my childhood!" one drone shouted at a couple hanging out on a California beach, though they were hundreds of feet away from anyone else. "You have stolen everything...

    A former top US health official has told Congress the country could face its "darkest winter in modern history" because of the coronavirus. Rick Bright led the government agency trying to develop a vaccine, but was removed from his post last month. He has previously said he was ousted from the job for raising concern over a treatment being touted by President Donald Trump. The US leader dismissed him as a "disgruntled" employee.
  • Brennan: Trump Exploiting Government To Retain Power, We've Never Had This Kind Of Abuse

    Former CIA Director John Brennan said he is aghast by President Donald Trump's abuse of authority and the use of the intelligence and national security communities to retain power. In an interview on Thursday with MSNBC's Brian Williams and Nicolle Wallace, Brennan said the intel community is being exploited for political purposes by people who don't have the principles to lead the country and accused Trump of acting with a "despot's playbook." "I think our country is in very serious trouble," Brennan lamented. "When you have such blatant political corruption at the highest levels of the U.S. government, something I...

    A new Climate Action Plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions seeks to keep the earth from becoming “a giant, raging fire ball floating atop a bubbling hot ocean of acid,” writes Gwendolyn Knapp for Houstonia magazine. Knapp praised the city of Houston for launching a Climate Action Plan, along with hundreds of other U.S. cities with “like-minded, science-backed, and community-driven strategies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions,” just in time for the 50th anniversary of Earth Day. “The city intends to meet the Paris Agreement’s goal of carbon neutrality by 2050, and lead the global energy transition,” Knapp declares. “It will...

    Video at link. My notes follow. A chart of the CFR on the US. Now at 4.24%. Thought that ramping testing would have driven percentage down. Damage more widespread than thought. Destroys lungs, but damages kidneys, hearts and elsewhere. Heart inflamation, acute kidney disease, neurological malfunction, blood clots, intestinal damage, and liver problems. Half of people hospitalized have blood or protein in the urine, indicating early damage to the kidneys. 14-30% of intensive care patients in NY and Wuhan have lost kidney function and require dialysis. Losing sense of smell and taste is often an early indicator that you have...

    A Santa Clara County health official said Monday that her department will likely be dealing with the new coronavirus “for a very, very long time,” and at some point, everyone will probably be infected. Dr. Sarah Cody, the director of the county’s health department, said that the state’s shelter-in-place order will “slow things down” and enable health officials to spread out those who are severely ill who require hospitalizations, SFGate.com reported. “I just have to keep reminding myself that this is a marathon and we have to keep ourselves nourished somehow, and we have to keep our energy good.” Cody’s...

    At a former open pit copper mine filled with billions of gallons of toxic water, sirens and loud pops from propane cannons echo off the granite walls to scare away birds so they don’t land. After several thousand migrating snow geese perished in the Berkeley Pit’s acidic, metal-laden waters in 2016, its owners deployed a sophisticated arsenal to frighten away flocks, including lasers, drones, fireworks and remote-controlled boats. Montana Resources already had been hazing incoming birds with spotlights and rifle shots into the water — and a spokesman says those existing deterrents likely helped the company avoid a penalty or...

    Asteroid Collision Simulator ^ | March 16th, 2020 | Paul McBurney
    With concerns of the Coronavirus Outbreak the media has been less involved with other matters. As a result I would like to post something unrelated to that of the virus. The linked asteroid collision map is a simulation that lets ordinary users like you take the powers of nature into your hands and view the destruction of asteroid collisions in different magnitudes and mediums. It's extremely interesting to see how a relatively small object can wreak havoc on society because of it's high impact speed. I believe that having tools similar to this is important because it raises awareness to...

    The main threats are in East Africa and Yemen, as well the Gulf states, Iran, Pakistan and India. Most recently, locusts have been seen in the Democratic Republic of Congo and swarms have arrived in Kuwait, Bahrain and Qatar and along the coast of Iran. According to reports, China is ready to send 100,000 ducks to its border to devour the insects, telling the birds were “biological weapons,” capable of eating more than 200 locusts a day (chickens can ‘only’ eat about 70 locusts in one day.

    SNIP Here’s the problem: Many of these “presidential norms and traditions” that Trump has left by the wayside aren’t timeless at all; they’re actually quite new. They grew up alongside and in reaction to the expansion of both the federal state and the presidency—a process that began in the early 20th century but gained steam from the 1930s onward. With the growth of what Arthur Schlesinger Jr. called the “imperial presidency,” each occupant of the Oval Office has left his imprimatur on the development of what we think of as normative presidential conduct. That means that whatever impact Trump has...

    In 50 years, Billie Eilish will be turning 69 years old, technology will likely be unrecognizable, and the world may have lost 1/3 of all its plant and animal species. A new study has found that warming temperatures will likely cause hundreds of species to go extinct. Researchers at the University of Arizona analyzed 538 plant and animal species from around the world, 44% of which already faced local extinctions in at least one area in the world. What they discovered is that the areas that suffered from species extinctions had "larger and faster changes in hottest yearly temperatures than...
