  • Study suggests Covid rebound is far more common with Paxlovid than without

    Asmall and preliminary study published Monday seems to indicate that patients receiving the drug Paxlovid are far more likely to experience Covid rebound than those who did not take it. That conclusion runs counter to previous statements by Pfizer, which makes Paxlovid, and by researchers at the Food and Drug Administration who have argued that while it is not uncommon for people with Covid to have symptoms reemerge after they seem to have recovered, it is not clear that Paxlovid increases the risk of this occurring.

    A bombshell new study is raising major concerns about the widespread use of Covid mRNA shots after linking the injections to 17 million sudden deaths around the world. The study, published by Correlation Research in the Public Interest, analyzed data related to all-cause mortality across 17 countries. The researchers quantified the vaccine-dose fatality rate (vDFR) across all ages. VDFR measures the ratio of vaccine-induced deaths to the total number of vaccines administered to the population. The researchers found that the mean of all-ages fatal toxicity by injection of the vDFR of 1 death per 800 injections across all ages and...
  • Climate change is narrowing the window for safe prescribed burns: study

    While prescribed burns are a critical tool in wildfire prevention, warming climate conditions are restricting the window of time in which they can be safely deployed, a new study has found. Kindled by highly trained firefighters, these controlled blazes help clear away excess dry plant matter that could otherwise catalyze what the study authors described as “a raging inferno.” Such fires can only occur safely when the weather is not so damp as to prevent combustion, but also not so dry or windy that more vegetation would burn than planned, the authors noted. But climate change is now reducing the...
  • Physically Strong Men Seen as More Conservative, University Study Finds

    A recent study conducted at the University of Arkansas finds that men with heightened physical strength are perceived as more conservative by others. The study found that men who seem fit and healthy and have some bulk are considered right-wing, while thin or svelte and weak-looking men were not assumed to lean right. The results came from a series of four experiments that sought to establish a link between political orientation and a fit physique, according to the Daily Mail. Viewers were presented with photos of male bodies with faces covered and asked to rank which ideology they thought the...

    Coffee & Covid 2023- Substack ^ | August 8, 2023 | Jeff Childers
    🔬 The puzzle pieces continue to fall into place, and a significant new puzzle piece dropped last week, in the form of a preprint published to MedRxIV on July 31st, titled “SARS-CoV-2 Uses CD4 to Infect T Helper Lymphocytes.” Although “just” a preprint, it features no fewer than seventy-seven authors. And it has already gathered three positive peer reviews. Let’s start with their conclusion, and then try to unpack what it means. The study’s admittedly obscure conclusion: We demonstrated that SARS-CoV-2 spike glycoprotein (S) directly binds to the CD4 molecule, which in turn mediates the entry of SARS-CoV-2 in T...
  • Time to ditch the burgers? Eating meat creates FOUR times more greenhouse gases than being vegan, study finds (only 7.51 years left)

    The summer holidays are nearly here which would normally mean there's never been a better time to fire up the barbeque and line it with beef burgers. But a new study shows you might want to swap them for meat-free alternatives if you want to do your bit to save the planet. University of Oxford experts say eating just 100g of meat per day – less than a single burger – creates four times more greenhouse gases compared with a vegan diet. The researchers now want to see prompt policy action from government and organisations to trigger 'dietary shifts away...

    On Tuesday, a reporter for The New York Times authored a column with this teaser:Using four decades of health data from Denmark, the study offers the clearest picture yet of the suicide risk among transgender people.The study was published two days ago in the Journal of the American Medical Association, and concluded what many of us likely already know: “transgender” people are at a massively increased risk of both successful and attempted suicide. In the report the NYT touted as the “first in the world to analyze national suicide data for this group”, researchers found:Transgender people in the country had...

    Washington Examiner ^ | June 7, 2023 | Timothy P. Carney
    COVID-19 was spread by people hanging out with other people. One of the terrible truths of the outbreaks in 2020 and 2021 was that the most dangerous activities were the most important parts of life: extended families getting together for lengthy, laughter-filled dinners. Put another way, the way to stop the spread of COVID was to give up sociality. For that reason, it’s unsurprising when studies find that government rules keeping people apart were not ultimately effective at stopping the spread. “Did Lockdowns Work?” is the title of a new study by American and European researchers. They examined tens of...
  • Peer-Reviewed Study: 'The Higher the Number of Vaccines Previously Received, the Higher the Risk of Contracting COVID-19'

    The pre-print for this study, prior to the peer review process, came out late last year. It showed, in a nutshell, that more COVID-19 shots correlated to a greater risk of contracting COVID-19.But the COVIDians predictably, in eternal denial as is their nature, pounced on the fact that the initial paper was a pre-print. They dismissed it for not being peer-reviewed, which is often described as the “gold standard” stamp of approval by The Science™.Mind you, the corporate state media expresses no such criticism of pre-print studies that say what they want them to say about the alleged efficacy of...
  • Major Journal Retracts Study On ‘Socially Contagious’ Transgenderism Among Kids Following Activist Threats

    The Daily Caller ^ | May 24, 2023 | Laurel Duggan
    Springer’s Archives of Sexual Behavior is retracting a major academic paper that explores the “socially contagious” aspect of youth transgenderism following threats from transgender activists, according to documents reviewed by the Daily Caller News Foundation. The paper, titled “Rapid Onset Gender Dysphoria: Parent Reports on 1655 Possible Cases,” found that children who suddenly adopted transgender identities in adolescence skewed heavily female and frequently had preexisting mental health issues. The journal has claimed the retraction is due to researchers’ failure to obtain written informed consent from survey participants, but Dr. Michael Bailey, one of the study’s authors, disputes this explanation and...

    We had just noted in a post yesterday about how you never hear the term “far-left” — from Democrats to the media … even from Republicans. The media’s focus is always on the “far-right wing,” or the “ultra-MAGA conservatives.” The Atlantic just informed us that Twitter is now a “far-right social network.” AOC has said we need to protect Drag Queen Story Hour from the “far-right,” while no one said a word about the far-left militia members who brought AR-15s to protect an “all-ages” drag brunch in Texas. A new study has been published about left-wing extremism, and it links...
  • Murders jumped 10% since 2021 in major Democrat-led US cities thanks to soft-on-crime policies: study

    The murder rates in major US Cities have soared more than 10% in the past two years — with most homicides occurring in Democratic areas with soft-on-crime policies. In a study released by WalletHub Wednesday, researchers found that Memphis, Tennesse; New Orleans, Louisana; Richmond, Virginia; Washington, DC; and Detroit, Michigan are suffering from the biggest homicide rate problems. All five cities are led by left-wing mayors. After comparing the rise in murder rates in 45 of the country’s most populated cities between 2021 and 2023, scholars noticed that killings were rising faster in Democrat-led cities than in their Republican counterparts....

    There is no evidence that shielding benefited vulnerable people as a COVID pandemic response, according to a new study. A new study of health data has examined the policy of shielding those deemed “Clinically Extremely Vulnerable” (CEV) to the virus, with the study’s main author claiming the UK government policy “was sort of made up at the time and implemented.” The shielding practice involved minimising interaction between CEV persons and others. Top oncologist Angus Dalgleish, who is now speaking out against COVID vaccine boosters, told The Epoch Times that he was not surprised by the results of the study, and...

    A simulation based on apocalyptic images designed to highlight “the disastrous effects of climate change” had the opposite impact on those who viewed it and failed to shift attitudes, a study from Singapore Management University details. The work was based on Hong Kong citizens being shown a life-like 3D depiction of a climate-induced six-metre storm surge on their city. It sought to use virtual simulations of future extreme weather events to communicate climate change risk.

    Rare female lizards that reside around Colorado’s Fort Carson Army base are “stress eating” to cope with military aircraft fly-over noise, a new study has found. These uncommon reptiles, called Colorado checkered whiptails, are engaging in compensatory feeding behaviors when low-flying Apache, Chinook and Blackhawk helicopters — and sometimes F-16 fighter jets — swoop over their habitat, according to the study, published on Wednesday in Frontiers in Amphibian and Reptile Science. Lizards tend to have excellent hearing and are sensitive to much lower frequencies than humans are, the study authors explained. Colorado checkered whiptails are members of a species considered...

    A 2022 study found that youth who identify as transgender are at the highest risk of “violent radicalization.” The study, titled “Meaning in Life, Future Orientation and Support for Violent Radicalization Among Canadian College Students During the COVID-19 Pandemic,” explored the extent to which different demographics were open to violent radicalization. The abstract explains, “The COVID-19 pandemic has increased levels of uncertainty and social polarization in our societies, compromising young people’s capacity to envision a positive future and maintain a meaningful sense of purpose in life.” It also goes on to say: Within a positive youth development framework, the present...

    TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — A study on auto insurance rates across the country found that in Florida, women pay an average more than $300 higher than men. The study, by QuoteWizard, said it was the second largest gender gap in the country, when it came to auto insurance rates. Generally, the study said men tend to pay slightly less no matter where. However, sometimes it’s a matter of age. Teenage male drivers pay more than their female counterparts, but overall men pay less. “On average, we found that men pay $720 per year for auto insurance, while women pay $739...

    Vaccination against COVID-19 was associated with a reduced cardiovascular risk post-COVID-19 infection, according to new research from the Icahn School of Medicine.1 An analysis of data from nearly 2 million patients in the US, results of the study indicate full and partial vaccination were associated with 41% and 24% relative reductions in risk of major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE) following COVID-19 infection, respectively, when compared to risk among unvaccinated patients.1 “We sought to clarify the impact of previous vaccination on cardiovascular events among people who develop COVID-19 and found that, particularly among those with comorbidities, such as previous MACE, type...
