    RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) – When many people envision Thanksgiving they think of large family dinners followed by Black Friday shopping sprees. However, with the coronavirus pandemic still at large, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is recommending people alter their celebrations this year with safety in mind. This includes smaller gatherings and not traveling for the holiday.“Thanksgiving is a time when many families travel long distances to celebrate together,” the CDC said on its website. “Travel increases the chance of getting and spreading the virus that causes COVID-19. Staying home is the best way to protect yourself and others....

    Genealogy websites have become increasingly popular in recent years. These platforms are able to scour the web in search of documents and archival data, which can help users build historically accurate family trees. There’s also another side to genealogy websites that has attracted attention from privacy advocates: DNA testing. Websites like Ancestry.com can use DNA testing to find matches, but the fact that these platforms store this information on their end means that hackers could try and steal it. Tap or click here to see how Ancestry.com suffered a huge data breach. Since genealogy websites collect so much data, their...

    Recent scientific studies have raised concerns and generated headlines after they suggested that antibodies to the coronavirus fade within months. But scientists say the story is more complicated — and less depressing than it seems.... Scott Hensley, a virologist at the University of Pennsylvania, tweeted that a contraction of the immune system after viral infection is “basic immunology.” Shane Crotty, a virologist at the La Jolla Institute for Immunology, told The Atlantic, “It’s not unusual to have fading antibody response after several months.” “The drop-off isn’t that surprising. When you look at something like the smallpox vaccine, you see the...
  • Jeffrey Epstein was blackmailing politicians for Israel’s Mossad, new book claims

    It's becoming more and more apparent, that Ghislaine Maxwell was probably the mastermind behind Epstein's operation. In my opinion, she was working for the Israeli gov't, and Epstein was an employee of hers. Her father was clearly involved in Israeli Intelligence, and most likely recruited his daughter. I am quite sure that there are organized files on many many politicians, celebrities, bankers and generally people of wealth and power who were filmed with underaged girls. Here's a short bio on the father: Robert Maxwell’s life read like a novel, having variously been suspected of working for the British, Israeli and...

    LOUISVILLE, Kentucky -- A Kentucky couple is under house arrest after one of them tested positive for coronavirus and refused to sign self-quarantine papers. Elizabeth Linscott got tested for COVID-19 because she was planning to go visit her parents. "My grandparents wanted to see me, too, so, just to make sure that, you know, if I tested negative, that they would be okay, everything would be fine," Linscott said. After testing positive but without showing any symptoms, Linscott said the health department contacted her, requesting she sign documents. "I agreed to comply to call the Health Department if I was...

    Ford Motor Company Employees have asked the company’s leadership to stop making and selling police vehicles. According to Verge, the internal discussion came as the demands for racial justice raged across the country. In response, Ford CEO Jim Hackett has told employees in a letter that he doesn’t think it’s “controversial that the Ford Police Interceptor helps officers do their job” and that Ford will continue the business. Ford has the market when it comes to making police cars, accounting for two-thirds of the cop cars on the street. Despite Ford’s success in the police car market, employees, including black...

    Police should not operate as an occupying army The public outrage following the killing of George Floyd has refocused many in Congress and the public on the need for police reform. Some of the proposals are simply outrageous, such as “abolishing” the police or defunding police departments seen by some as “systemically” racist institutions incapable of reform. Other reforms make sense and are long overdue. Among these are proposals to put a halt to measures that have seemingly transformed many departments into quasi-military forces that act and are seen by those they are supposed to protect as an occupying military...

    If I wasn’t thinking about being Black, what would I think about? I think about the murder of Black people every morning. When I wake up, when I leave my house, when I jog around white neighborhoods, when I see the blue-red blur of a police car. I think of Black murder every time I open my phone to see white people’s vacations or dinners with friends or family gatherings. I look at white happiness and I wonder how they can so easily ignore the unjust murders countless Black families in America grieve every year. I look at white skin...

    Rep. Thomas Massie and Lunatic Farmer Joel Salatin talk about how regulations have created a system that allows just four companies to handle all the meat processing in the US. If you want to buy some fresh meat from a local farmer, that’s illegal, not for reasons of safety, but to protect the interests of these giant corporations. Click excerpt link to Watch!

    New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell's announcement this week that businesses reopening when coronavirus restrictions are eased May 16 will be required to keep track of their customers has prompted questions from businesses and customers alike. How will the new protocol be enforced? How will customers be logged? And most important: Will the businesses and their customers play ball? Cantrell said Tuesday the goal is for companies to help "box in" coronavirus by providing data to health officials, but she offered few details about the plan. And there is little evidence of a similar mandate in the U.S. Efforts closest to...

    STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- New Yorkers who die at home are not being tested for COVID-19, even if they had flu- or coronavirus-like symptoms at the time of death, which is likely leading to a massive underreporting of COVID-19 fatalities. ..... A spokeswoman for the medical examiner’s office told Gothamist that an additional 200 people are dying at home each day, in addition to the 20 to 25 people that died at home each day before the pandemic.

    King Donald the First? Joy Reid is rattled by the prospect that such could actually come to be! On her MSNBC show this morning, Reid warned that President Trump—aided and abetted by that dastardly AG Bill Barr—might be planning to "expand his power under the guise of national security" to achieve the goal he has "always" had: "reigning as a monarch with unlimited power rather than serving as a mere president in a democracy."

    Shares of others in the race may lose momentum Companies working on COVID-19 treatment and prevention have seen their shares soar so far this year. Moderna (NASDAQ: MRNA) gained 44%, Regeneron Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: REGN) rose 15%, Gilead Sciences (NASDAQ: GILD) climbed 9%, and Inovio Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: INO) soared 102%.These stocks may lose momentum if chloroquine becomes the "go-to" drug for COVID-19. As mentioned above, there is room for additional treatments, but if chloroquine gets the first-mover advantage, others that eventually enter probably will seize a smaller share of the market than hoped. The news also would burst the bubble of...

    Covid-19 cases as of 3-16-20 compared with 2018 death rates for the Flu. While Covid-19 has hardly competed its run, nor has the flu, yet for comparison with the flu we have the morality rate for the flu per state in 2017-2018 and total deaths, which I have provided along side the latest Covid counts (3-16-20 ) to the table below. Additional stats on the 2019-2020 Flu season are provided below the the table. During the 2017-2018 season, the percentage of deaths attributed to pneumonia and influenza (P&I) was at or above the epidemic threshold for 16 consecutive weeks. Nationally,...

    The goal behind long-term shutdowns and quarantines is to preserve health and ultimately to save lives, but how extensive will the cost be to the economy? Will that effect itself cost lives, as well as foster permanent loss of personal freedom? Months from now how do you think all the actions o Covid-19 be judged? What will or should we learn from this? How will this change society? Will this be an annual recourse to the next incarnation of a highly communicable infection? Being part of crowded gatherings puts people involved in danger when a highly communicable disease is a...
