Huge COVID case-counting deception at the CDC

“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…The agency confirmed to The Atlantic on Wednesday that it is mixing the results of viral [PCR] and antibody tests, even though the two tests reveal different information and are used for different reasons.”

Quantum 'kick' on big object measured for 1st time ever

Quantum effects are pushing us around all the time, and we now have observational evidence of this somewhat disconcerting fact.

Researchers with the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory (LIGO) Scientific Collaboration have measured the tiny kick imparted to their exquisitely sensitive equipment by quantum fluctuations, a new study reports.

HUGE: MASSIVE CDC FRAUD UNCOVERED – CDC Grossly Overcounting Active China Coronavirus Cases Causing States to Keep Their Economies Closed Indefinitely

The CDC is over counting the number of China coronavirus cases in an apparent effort to keep the country shut down throughout the summer. This fraudulent activity was uncovered by the far-left Atlantic proving even a dead clock is right twice a day.

Moon's crust is richer in metals like iron and titanium than the Earth's - raising doubts about the long-held theory that it formed when a Mars-sized planet smashed into our world

The leading theory claims that the Moon formed out of the wreckage created when a Mars-sized planet called Theia collided with the young Earth 4.5 billion years ago.

If this were true then our only natural satellite would have roughly the same amount of iron as the Earth, but it actually has much more, according to the NASA team.

The findings, published in the journal Earth and Planetary Science Letters, was based on data sent back by NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO).

In some parts of the Moon, particularly the 'darker' areas of the surface, concentrations of metals in lunar rocks were higher than in some rocks on Earth.

U.S. Senators Introduce Bill to Study Military Aviators’ Cancer Risk from EMF, Non-Ionizing and Ionizing Radiation

By B.N. Frank

In 1971, The U.S. Naval Medical Research Institute had already determined that exposure to non-ionizing radiation (also referred to as cell phone and wireless radiation) was biologically harmful. In 1984, the U.S. EPA warned about various significant human health risks from exposure. In 1985, CNN reported that Electromagnetic Fields (EMF) had been used in weapons for what they described as “mind control”...

U.S. Naval fighter pilots seem to be aware of the potential for harm from exposure. Last year they blamed it for contributing to cancer and death within their service members...

COVID-FLU-SHOT COMBO? Will the next flu shot contain genetically modified, lab-concocted strains of Covid-19?

The problem with the MMR, the measles-mumps-rubella combination vaccine, is that the attack of the measles itself, according to virologists, requires your immune system’s full attention, so the other virus strains overwhelm the body, and the hyper-response or “adverse event” can be tragic. Combination vaccines, like the MMR, are highly experimental, unpredictable, and far from “safe and effective.” If the radicalized CDC decides this year to “kill two birds with one stone” and combine the seasonal flu vaccine with a Covid vaccine, then 200 million Americans could quickly become a statistic of vaccine injury.

LA ORDERS CLOSURE OF BEACHES FOR JULY 4TH WEEKEND, SHERIFF REFUSES TO ENFORCE BAN

Authored by Isabel van Brugen via The Epoch Times,

The closure of Los Angeles beaches over July 4 weekend was ordered by county officials Monday “to prevent dangerous crowding,” as confirmed cases of COVID-19 continue to rise.

In a statement on Sunday, Newsom said seven counties must close their bars. He also recommended that eight other counties in the most populous U.S. state close their bars, as he urged Californians to “remain vigilant” against the virus.

“Due to the rising spread of #COVID19, CA is ordering bars to close in Fresno, Imperial, Kern, Kings, Los Angeles, San Joaquin, and Tulare, while recommending they close in Contra Costa, Riverside, Sacramento, San Bernardino, Santa Barbara, Santa Clara, Stanislaus, & Ventura,” Newsom said on Twitter.

“COVID-19 is still circulating in California, and in some parts of the state, growing stronger,” he said in a statement.

“That’s why it is critical we take this step.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So what is Governor Newsom going to do now, fire Villanueva, and call in the California National Guard to handle enforcement of the shut down?!?

Because it appears that this is the only option he has left, in terms of enforcing a shut-down of California beaches.

It was completely tone-deaf, for Newsom not to include Villanueva in the process, and I don't blame Villanueva for his response one bit.

Phony Experts with Veiled Conflicts of Interest Polluting Debates on GMOs, Glyphosate, Endocrine Disruptors

One of France’s leading daily papers, Le Monde, just published an article on how “a group of toxicologists with tenuous expertise and veiled conflicts of interest are working to derail the implementation of European regulations” on endocrine disruptors – synthetic chemicals that are toxic at very low doses.

Chief among the phony experts that the paper suggests are polluting the scientific record is a Monsanto consultant who led the company’s efforts to defend glyphosate via science publications. And Helmut Greim is not the only one of the group currently defending endocrine disruptors to have featured heavily in the debates over the safety of glyphosate and GMOs.

Vitamin D appears to play role in COVID-19 mortality rates

After studying global data from the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, researchers have discovered a strong correlation between severe vitamin D deficiency and mortality rates.

Led by Northwestern University, the research team conducted a statistical analysis of data from hospitals and clinics across China, France, Germany, Italy, Iran, South Korea, Spain, Switzerland, the United Kingdom (UK) and the United States.

The researchers noted that patients from countries with high COVID-19 mortality rates, such as Italy, Spain and the UK, had lower levels of vitamin D compared to patients in countries that were not as severely affected.

Vitamin D 'triggers and arms' the immune system

Scientists at the University of Copenhagen have discovered that Vitamin D is crucial to activating our immune defences and that without sufficient intake of the vitamin, the killer cells of the immune system – T cells – will not be able to react to and fight off serious infections in the body.

For T cells to detect and kill foreign pathogens such as clumps of bacteria or viruses, the cells must first be ‘triggered’ into action and "transform" from inactive and harmless immune cells into killer cells that are primed to seek out and destroy all traces of invaders.

The researchers found that the T cells rely on vitamin D in order activate and they would remain dormant, ‘naïve’ to the possibility of threat if vitamin D is lacking in the blood.

Global magnetic anomaly hit the Earth out of nowhere during deep solar minimum

According to SpaceWeather.com, this unusual magnetic activity was picked up by a global network of observatories at the same time. Rob Stammes, an astronomer working out of the Lofoten Islands in northern Norway said that the event was very remarkable.

Stuart Green, an astronomer from Preston in the U.K., who operates a magnetometer, said of the event: “For more than 30 minutes, the local magnetic field oscillated like a sine wave. There was nothing – no uptick in the solar wind speed or other factors that might explain the disturbance.”

9 Things To Buy Every Time You Go To The Store

Authored by Daisy Luther via The Organic Prepper blog,

Lots of folks have mentioned that their grocery stores never fully restocked after the rush on food and supplies back at the beginning of the COVID-19 lockdown. And with the current news stories about spiking COVID numbers, it may not be long until we’re locked down again.

Work on what’s within your control
It’s important to note that even if you are unconcerned about the virus, there are a lot of things that could be out of your control in the event of another governmental series of actions:

Workplaces may close back down

Supply chains may be further damaged

The economy will take another hit

You may not be able to go where you want

Real, or not real; dangerous or not, the end result for us is the same.

Welcome To The New (Pathologized) Totalitarianism

Authored (satirically) by CJ Hopkins via ConsentFactory.org,

It was always going to come to this... mobs of hysterical, hate-drunk brownshirts hunting down people not wearing masks and trying to get them fired from their jobs, “no mask, no service” signs outside stores, security staff stopping the mask-less from entering, paranoid pod people pointing and shrieking at the sight of mask-less shoppers in their midst, goon squads viciously attacking and arresting them …

Welcome to the Brave New Normal.

REVEALED: More than 1,000 inmates at California's San Quentin Prison now have coronavirus

More than 1,000 inmates at California's San Quentin Prison have tested positive for coronavirus, meaning more than a third of the entire facility's population now have the virus.

The number jumped from 823 on Sunday to 1,015 on Monday, a 22 percent increase. There have been 973 new cases in the prison in the last 14 days.

The prison now has by far the highest number of cases out of all of California's correctional facilities.

Last week, 30 of the cases were prison staff and five infected inmates were released.

It’s Raining Gems! ‘Diamond Rain’ That Falls on Neptune and Uranus Finally Explained

Neptune and Uranus, the two most distant major planets in the Solar System, are also the most underexplored. Thirty years on, Voyager 2 remains the only space mission to have approached them, but a new experiment provides an important insight into their physics.

There is now new evidence proving the existence of “diamond rains” on Neptune and Uranus, according to a new study published in Nature Communications.

Scientists have suspected for decades that it’s literally raining gems in the methane oceans of the two far-flung planets.

Although Neptune and Uranus are called ice giants, “ice” here refers to a hot slushy fluid of materials, like water, ammonia and methane, over an Earth-sized rocky core and below lighter gases like hydrogen and helium.

Ron Paul: The Media Is Lying About The "Second Wave"

For months, the Washington Post and the rest of the mainstream media kept a morbid Covid-19 “death count” on their front pages and at the top of their news broadcasts. The coronavirus outbreak was all about the number of dead. The narrative was intended to boost governors like Cuomo in New York and Whitmer in Michigan, who turned their states authoritarian under the false notion that destroying people’s jobs, freedom, and lives would somehow keep a virus from doing what viruses always do: spread through a population until eventually losing strength and dying out.

The “death count” was always the headline.

World's dominant strain of coronavirus 'is 10 TIMES more infectious than the one that jumped to humans in China' because it mutated so its vital spike protein doesn't snap as often in the body, scientists say

A mutated version of the coronavirus that has gripped Europe and the West is more infectious because it doesn't break as often while inside the body, a study has found.

Researchers at The Scripps Research Institute in Florida say the 'spike protein' that the virus uses to attach to cells in the airways has adapted since January.

It used to break off regularly while trying to bind to receptors in people's airways, which it would use to gain entry to the body, but is now more resilient, they say.

2009 H1N1 Vaccine Caused Brain Damage in Children. Dr. Anthony Fauci on “Vaccine Safety” Issues

Today he is an avid supporter of a COVID-19 vaccine.

What he fails to acknowledge is that the 2009 H1N1 Vaccine caused brain damage in children.

It was developed by Glaxo Smith Kline which today is at the forefront of the COVID-19 vaccine initiative.

TENS OF THOUSANDS OF CORONAVIRUS TESTS HAVE BEEN DOUBLE-COUNTED, OFFICIALS ADMIT

Tens of thousands of Covid-19 tests have been double-counted in the Government’s official tally, public health officials have admitted.

Diagnostic tests which involve taking saliva and nasal samples from the same patient are being counted as two tests, not one.

The Department of Health and Social Care and Public Health England each confirmed the double-counting.

This inflates the daily reported diagnostic test numbers by over 20 per cent, with that proportion being much higher earlier on in the crisis before home test kits were added to the daily totals.

MASS-TRACKING COVI-PASS IMMUNITY PASSPORTS SLATED TO ROLL OUT IN 15 COUNTRIES

SOURCE: MINT PRESS
Through the magic of Internet meme culture, most Millennials will be familiar with the famous opening scene of the 1942 film, “Casablanca,” where two policemen stop a civilian in the “old Moorish section” of Nazi-occupied French Morocco and ask him for his “papers.” The subject is taken away at once after failing to produce the required documents. The cinematic exchange has been used ever since as a popular reference to the ever-encroaching hand of the state, which is now on the verge of attaining a level of control over people’s movements that puts the crude Nazi methods to shame.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Gates is infinitely less concerned with individual health, than health surveillance, and insuring that those vaccines companies in which he is heavily financially invested, make out like bandits, no matter if those vaccines can ultimately harm those who receive them.

Coronavirus: 'Most realistic' scenario says 10m will be on NHS waiting list by Christmas

Ten million people could be on waiting lists for NHS treatment by Christmas, health bosses have warned.

The combined effects of following social distancing measures, a backlog of treatments and staffing challenges are the main factors that will cause waiting lists to swell, a report by the NHS Confederation said.

According to the organisation representing health and care leaders, this is the most realistic scenario - and it would more than double the 4.2 million people who are currently waiting for treatment.

COVID19 PCR Tests are Scientifically Meaningless

So to start, it is very remarkable that Kary Mullis himself, the inventor of the Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) technology, did not think alike. His invention got him the Nobel prize in chemistry in 1993.

Unfortunately, Mullis passed away last year at the age of 74, but there is no doubt that the biochemist regarded the PCR as inappropriate to detect a viral infection.

The reason is that the intended use of the PCR was, and still is, to apply it as a manufacturing technique, being able to replicate DNA sequences millions and billions of times, and not as a diagnostic tool to detect viruses.

How declaring virus pandemics based on PCR tests can end in disaster was described by Gina Kolata in her 2007 New York Times article Faith in Quick Test Leads to Epidemic That Wasn’t.

Flashback 2007: Faith in Quick Test Leads to Epidemic That Wasn’t

That was the first problem in deciding whether there was an epidemic at Dartmouth.

The second was with P.C.R., the quick test to diagnose the disease, Dr. Kretsinger said.

With pertussis, she said, “there are probably 100 different P.C.R. protocols and methods being used throughout the country,” and it is unclear how often any of them are accurate. “We have had a number of outbreaks where we believe that despite the presence of P.C.R.-positive results, the disease was not pertussis,” Dr. Kretsinger added.

At Dartmouth, when the first suspect pertussis cases emerged and the P.C.R. test showed pertussis, doctors believed it. The results seem completely consistent with the patients’ symptoms.

“That’s how the whole thing got started,” Dr. Kirkland said.

CASH4COVID – HOW HOSPITALS ARE MAKING MONEY OFF THE CORONAVIRUS

We’ve known for weeks that hospitals get payments for diagnosing Covid19, and even using ventilators. That should worry everyone.

Hospitals in the US are getting money for diagnosing Covid19. They get more money if those patients are then put on ventilators. It’s time we really started thinking about what that means.

Early on in the launch of the Sars-Cov-2/Covid19 “pandemic”, it was revealed by Dr Scott Jensen that hospitals in the US were getting paid bonuses for diagnosing Covid19 in their patients, and then larger bonuses again if those patients were put on ventilators.

We’re not fact-checking that. We don’t need to. It’s already been done.

As soon as his words were aired, the “independent fact checkers” descended upon them in an effort to prove him wrong. They could not. Resorting instead to weasel words and obfuscations.

Snopes found his assertions “plausible”, Politifact called it “half true”, and FactCheck said it was true,

CRISPR Gene Editing in Human Embryos Wreaks Chromosome Mayhem

A suite of experiments that use the gene-editing tool CRISPR–Cas9 to modify human embryos have revealed how the process can make large, unwanted changes to the genome at or near the target site.

The studies were published this month on the preprint server bioRxiv, and have not yet been peer-reviewed. But taken together, they give scientists a good look at what some say is an underappreciated risk of CRISPR–Cas9 editing. Previous experiments have revealed that the tool can make ‘off target’ gene mutations far from the target site, but the nearby changes identified in the latest studies can be missed by standard assessment methods.

“The on-target effects are more important and would be much more difficult to eliminate,” says Gaétan Burgio, a geneticist at the Australian National University in Canberra.

Nursing Homes Account For 11% Of COVID-19 Cases, 43% Of Deaths In US

43% of all COVID-19 deaths in the United States are residents or employees of nursing homes or other long-term care (LTC) facilities, according to the New York Times (which fails to mention that New York Governor Andrew Cuomo ordered NY nursing homes to accept coronavirus patients from hospitals). Nursing homes, meanwhile, account for just 11% of all COVID-19 cases in the United States.

To date, just over 125,000 people in the US have died of COVID-19, 54,000 of which were linked to LTC facilities.

Public Transit Use Largely Responsible For 'Racial Discrepancy' In COVID-19 Death Rates

The fact is unavoidable: Black and Hispanic Americans have been dying of the coronavirus at rates 3.5x those of white Americans. For weeks now, politicians and activists have cited these data as evidence that "white supremacy" does, in fact, exist, since minorities - they argued - were more likely to work low-paid "essential" jobs at grocery stores, pharmacies, etc.

As it turns out, these theories, reported as if they were undeniable truths by the mainstream press (including the New York Times & Washington Post), didn't tell the whole story. While it's true minorities are dying at higher rates than white people from COVID-19, several recently published studies have determined that these higher mortality rates are likely connected to their higher use of public transit to commute to work - either via subway or bus.

Terrifying chart shows how Covid-19 patients who end up in hospital may be almost certain to die if they have a vitamin D deficiency

Nearly 99 per cent of Covid-19 patients who are vitamin D deficient die, according to a terrifying study that adds to mounting evidence that the 'sunshine' nutrient could be a coronavirus life-saver.

Indonesian researchers analysed hospital records of 780 people who tested positive for SARS-CoV-2, the coronavirus that causes Covid-19.

Results revealed 98.9 per cent of infected patients defined as vitamin D deficient — below 20ng/ml — died. Yet this fell to just 4.1 per cent for patients who had enough of the nutrient.

Imagine my shock.

It is clear vitamin D supplementation is effective, costs little, and has no side effects. Why are countries throwing billions into a barely tested vaccine which could wreck lives?

The Most Important Coronavirus Statistic: 42% Of U.S. Deaths Are From 0.6% Of The Population

2.1 million Americans, representing 0.62% of the U.S. population, reside in nursing homes and assisted living facilities. (Nursing homes are residences for seniors needing help with activities of daily living, such as taking a shower or getting dressed, who also require 24/7 medical supervision; assisted living facilities are designed for seniors who need help with activities of daily living, but don’t require full-time on-site medical supervision.)

According to an analysis that Gregg Girvan and I conducted for the Foundation for Research on Equal Opportunity, as of May 22, in the 43 states that currently report such figures, an astounding 42% of all COVID-19 deaths have taken place in nursing homes and assisted living facilities.

  • Negative results do not rule out SARS-CoV-2 infection, particularly in those who may be presymptomatic or immunocompromised.
  • Positive results may be due to past or present infection with non-SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus strains; for example, representing cross-reactivity with other common non-COVID-19 human coronaviruses.

    LET’S FACT-CHECK REUTERS: THEY SAY DNA VACCINES DON’T CHANGE YOUR GENETIC MAKEUP—TRUE OR FALSE?

    SOURCE: JON RAPPOPORT
    As my readers know, I’ve been reporting on new types of technology that could be used in a coming COVID-19 vaccine—and warning about the consequences.

    One such technology is: DNA vaccines. They would alter recipients’ genetic makeup permanently.

    But Reuters has seen fit to claim: “A future COVID-19 [DNA] vaccine will not genetically modify humans.” This comes from their “fact-check team” — May 18, 2020: “False claim: A COVID-19 vaccine will genetically modify humans.”

    To reach this conclusion, Reuters cites two people: “Mark Lynas, a visiting fellow at Cornell University’s Alliance for Science group”, and “Dr. Paul McCray, Professor of Pediatrics, Microbiology, and Internal Medicine at the University of Iowa.”

    I have cited the New York Times, March 10, 2015, “Protection Without a Vaccine.” Here are quotes from the Times article:

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    I am no anti-vaxxer.

    When Mike came down with mycoplasma pneumonia a number of years ago, and I asked my sister-in-law, a nurse/practitioner, what I could do to make sure he stayed healthy once he got home, she suggested that I get a pneumovax vaccination, which I did immediately.

    But any vaccination which could alter my DNA?!? Forgive me, but I am going to want to see how that plays out over time, before I make the decision to get one of those.

    And here is a strong caution regarding vaccines that "big pharma" have assured us are "safe"; UK GOVERNMENT TO COMPENSATE BRAIN-DAMAGED VICTIMS OF SWINE FLU VACCINE

    The article goes on to state: "The British Government will shell out big money to patients who suffered brain damage as a result of taking the swine flu vaccine.

    The government is expected to pay about $100 million dollars to 60 victims with each of them receiving about $1.7 million each. The settlement is over the swine flu vaccine, Pandemrix, manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline. Nearly 60 million people received the vaccine following the 2009 swine flu outbreak, most of them children. It was later discovered that the vaccine can cause narcolepsy and cataplexy, and some 800 children across Europe are so far known to have gotten ill from the vaccine."

    And please do remember the following: No Pharma Liability? No Vaccine Mandates.

    This article goes on to state: "On February 22, 2011 the U.S. Supreme Court shielded drug companies from all liability for harm caused by vaccines mandated by government when companies could have made a safer vaccine. 1

    From now on, drug companies selling vaccines in America will not be held accountable by a jury of our peers in a court of law if those vaccines brain damage us but could have been made less toxic.

    If you get paralyzed by a flu shot or your child has a serious reaction to a vaccine required for school and becomes learning disabled, epileptic, autistic, asthmatic, diabetic or mentally retarded, you are on your own."

    Let’s fact-check Reuters: they say DNA vaccines don’t change your genetic makeup—true or false? by Jon Rappoport

    The verdict on the Reuters fact-check team? Fact-checkers checked the wrong box.

    Final point for the moment: Researchers are fond of saying their genetic technologies are quite safe. This a bald-faced lie. Claiming, for example, that a DNA COVID vaccine would alter humans’ genetic makeup in entirely predictable and harmless ways is like saying a car without brakes, doing a hundred miles an hour, set loose on a highway during rush hour, would create no damage whatsoever.

    1984 EPA Report Reveals Major Health Hazards from Exposure to Cell Phone and WiFi Radiation

    By B.N. Frank

    For decades, the U.S. government has been acutely aware of the dangers associated with exposure to radiofrequency (RF) radiation (“wireless radiation”), the same type of radiation emitted by cell phones, WiFi routers, Bluetooth devices, wireless antennas, and more.

    In September of 1984, the EPA published a report titled “Biological Effects of Radiofrequency Radiation.” The authors of the document discuss health risks associated with exposure to wireless radiation frequencies between 0.5 MHz to 100 GHz, citing disease endpoints ranging from carcinogenesis to neurological disturbances...

    “Covid-19 Has Turned Public Health into a Patient-Killing Experiment”

    From the beginning of the SARS-COV-2/COVID19 pandemic rollout there have been disturbing hints, rumours and even overt whistleblower claims of seemingly gross medical malpractice connected with the treatment and handling of allegedly infected people.

    We have heard about mandatory Do Not Resuscitate orders issued for the elderly, cognitively challenged people, autistic people and even children with fairly minor congenital conditions.

    We have heard of terrifyingly inappropriate usage of invasive ventilation that can only increase the numbers of covid19 deaths’, and of general levels of incompetence and poor practice that must have the same result.

    And now we have evidence of three clinical trials which require patients to be given up to 4 times the normal dosage of hydroxychloroquine, with or without their consent. In one of these studies over 25% of patients died.

    All COVID-19 vaccines to be made with aborted human fetal cells

    If you or someone you know is anxiously waiting for a Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine to hit the market, just know that all of the top contenders are being formulated with ingredients made from aborted human fetal cells.

    While the vaccines themselves will likely not contain any actual aborted fetal tissue, the additives they contain come from cell lines harvested from human babies that were murdered while still in the womb.

    How Mindfulness Helped Me Thrive During My Cancer Recovery Phase

    Mindfulness meditation helped me reclaim my life, and my present moment. It was a game changer for me! After about a month of daily meditation, I remember running errands and pausing at the grocery store because for the first time since getting diagnosed with cancer I felt a sense of peace, satisfaction, and happiness that I hadn’t felt before the big C entered my life.

    Can We Trust An FDA Approved, DARPA Funded, Under-the-Skin Biosensor to Detect Signs of Illness?

    By B.N. Frank

    The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approves A LOT of prescriptions and products that are eventually proven to be harmful. Sometimes catastrophically harmful. The agency has even been blamed for the Opioid Crisis by some very credible people. Activist Post reports regularly about the agency’s mishaps, mistakes, and shenanigans.

    So should we be concerned about them being in charge of approving an under-the-skin biosensor to detect symptoms like those found with Covid-19 ... and funded by DARPA?

    Top alien-hunting scientists create cosmic compendium of every place ETs might be found

    One of the world’s leading alien-hunter teams, Breakthrough Listen, has published a list of more than 700 places out there in the universe where extraterrestrials might be discovered.

    The Exotica Catalog of 737 distinct astronomical objects includes every known type of celestial object, big, small and truly massive – those that scientists don't yet understand and those with which they’re already familiar.

    It’s the culmination of a decade’s painstaking work to list “one of everything” out there in the cosmos, including but not limited to rocks such as asteroids, comets, and planets; stars like red giants, white dwarves and pulsars; and bigger entities the likes of galaxies, nebulae, and black holes, as well as a few smaller surprise entries.

    First-Ever Contract for Tourist Walk in Outer Space Signed, Russian Space Corporation Reveals

    Roscosmos and Space Adventures have been cooperating in space tourism since 2001, when the first space tourist, Dennis Tito, went into orbit. Since then, a total of seven people have been in space under the space tourism programme.

    The first-ever contract for a tourist walk in outer space has been signed, the Russian space corporation Energia said. The venture is set for 2023.

    "RSC Energia and US company Space Adventures Inc. have signed a contract to implement a short expedition for two spaceflight participants to the Russian segment of the International Space Station in 2023, on board a Soyuz-MS", Energia said in a statement.

    10 Years of Searches: Scientists Discover Exoplanet That is 8% Larger Than Neptune

    Astronomers say the new research, which was published on 24 June in the journal Nature, will allow them to study how planets interact with their stars as well as provide more understanding about how planets form and evolve.

    An international team of scientists have discovered an exoplanet that is 8 percent larger than Neptune, the fourth-largest planet in our Solar System. It is located in the constellation Microscopium, 32 light years away from the Earth and orbits the star AU Microscopii (AU Mic) that scientists have long been interested in.

    Au Mic is estimated to be 20 to 30 million years old, an infant in cosmic terms and is surrounded by a disk of debris and gas, left after its formation. Researchers previously theorized that AU Mic may be home to a planet and have been searching to prove their hypothesis for a decade.

    Alien life could exist in vast salty ocean inside Jupiter’s icy moon Europa – study

    New research has found that the enormous salty ocean inside Jupiter’s moon Europa could sustain life, raising the tantalizing prospect that alien lifeforms may exist below the icy surface.

    Experts have long speculated that the waters of Europa may be habitable and a new study has finally added weight to the theory, discovering that the moon’s waters are likely not as acidic as was previously believed.

    Scientists from NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory used data from the Galileo mission to create a computer simulation of the conditions on Europa and the physical characteristics of the vast subsurface ocean.

    Former CDC Chief Dr. Tom Frieden: Coronavirus infection risk may be reduced by Vitamin D

    Higher COVID-19 mortality rates among older people and those with chronic conditions suggest that a weakened immune system contributes to poor outcomes. There are many crackpot claims about miracle cures floating around, but the science supports the possibility – although not the proof – that Vitamin D may strengthen the immune system, particularly of people whose Vitamin D levels are low.

    Vitamin D supplementation reduces the risk of respiratory infection, regulates cytokine production and can limit the risk of other viruses such as influenza. A respiratory infection can result in cytokine storms – a vicious cycle in which our inflammatory cells damage organs throughout the body – which increase mortality for those with COVID-19. Adequate Vitamin D may potentially provide some modest protection for vulnerable populations.

    This is especially important for people who are Vitamin D deficient – and, surprisingly, that might include more than 40 percent of US adults.

    Study: Vitamin D can reduce side effects associated with chemotherapy

    As many cancer patients will confirm, the chemotherapy prescribed to kill the disease is often more debilitating than the cancer itself, with a range of horrendous side effects.

    Gastrointestinal mucositis, a painful inflammation and ulceration of the digestive tract, is one adverse outcome of chemotherapy that has plagued cancer sufferers for years, and for which no effective treatment currently exists.

    But this bleak outlook may be about to change, according to University of South Australia researchers who say Vitamin D could potentially mitigate inflamed intestinal tracts and provide relief to cancer patients.

    More evidence that lack of vitamin D is linked to COVID-19 severity

    The evidence that a deficiency of vitamin D is linked with COVID-19 is now also growing. Although the link is not yet confirmed, the researchers recommend taking a daily supplement of 800-1000 International Units (20 -25 micrograms) daily to ensure normal vitamin D blood levels, especially for those who have a greater risk of deficiency, such as people with darker skin or those who spend a lot of time indoors.

    "Our group is cautious about ascribing a causal association in advance of results from vitamin D supplementation studies which are ongoing. However, given the high prevalence of vitamin D deficiency in many northern latitude countries, the reduction in outdoor physical activity during COVID, and the safety of vitamin D, public health bodies in Ireland and UK are recommending that older persons, those who are mainly indoors and those from other high risk groups such as BAME, should take regular supplements," said study author Professor Rose Anne Kenny.

    Refuse To Social Distance? New Study Says You May Be A Psychopath!

    By Spiro Skouras

    Are you tired of social distancing? Tired of the lockdowns? Do you find yourself wishing things would just go back to normal like they were in 2019 when we were all just regular debt slaves to the central banks?

    Well then you just might be a psychopath. That’s right, according to a brand new peer-reviewed study published on May 31st 2020 people who ignore the new normal protocols like social distancing display certain antagonistic personality traits.

    Luckily, These traits have been identified and they are called the dark triad.

    It appears we are fast approaching a time when opposing the establishment and questioning the government will be considered a mental disorder…

    NASA invites you to explore Mars though images of the Red Planet taken by its Curiosity rover and help train its AI algorithm by labelling rocks and surface features as you go

    NASA is asking people to explore Mars using images taken of the Red Planet by its Curiosity Rover and help to label rocks and other surface features.

    The project, known as AI4Mars, is designed to improve an artificial intelligence algorithm that will help future Martian rovers move across the planet's surface.

    The simulation was designed by a team from NASAs Jet Propulsion Laboratory as a way to help future rovers spot potential obstacles and avoid getting stuck.

    The projected is hosted on the citizen science site Zooniverse and involves volunteers labelling terrain features in thousands of pictures of the Red Planet.

    NASA hopes that having a more effective algorithm - similar to the ones used in self driving cars - will prevent future rovers suffering the same fate as Spirit which got stuck in a sand pit that ended its mission after seven years.

    Infant vaccination rates plummeted during the lock down, so why did INFANT mortality rates also plummet to historic lows?

    If vaccines are so important for an infant to live, then why didn’t the infant death rate dramatically increase as vaccination coverage fell? The data shows that the opposite effect occurred; infant deaths actually plummeted to historic lows! In the U.S., infants mortality occurs at roughly 700 babies per week. This trend of infant death and sacrifice remained steady from 2014 to 2019. In 2020, this all changed. From early March to mid-April, infant deaths fell by 30 percent on average each week! Throughout April and into mid May, the infant mortality rate had declined to 500 on average per week.

    Deaths among children under 18 are relatively rare when compared to deaths from other age groups. For the average death rate to change by 30 percent in the youngest age group (infants) – that is unprecedented!

    Pluto has a vast ocean beneath its frozen crust that has been there for 4.5 billion years and could be harbouring alien life, study shows

    Pluto harbours a vast ocean beneath its frozen crust that has been there for 4.5 billion years - 500 million years longer than Earth's seas - a study has found.

    Pluto is known today as a ball of frozen ice and rock orbiting the sun at a distance of 3.7 billion miles.

    But a new study suggests that it may have been hot when it first formed, allowing liquid water to form on its surface and potentially providing the conditions needed to support alien life.

    NEJM: Universal Masking in Hospitals in the Covid-19 Era

    We know that wearing a mask outside health care facilities offers little, if any, protection from infection. Public health authorities define a significant exposure to Covid-19 as face-to-face contact within 6 feet with a patient with symptomatic Covid-19 that is sustained for at least a few minutes (and some say more than 10 minutes or even 30 minutes). The chance of catching Covid-19 from a passing interaction in a public space is therefore minimal. In many cases, the desire for widespread masking is a reflexive reaction to anxiety over the pandemic.

    Plan to release genetically modified mosquitoes in Florida gets go-ahead

    A plan to release a horde of 750 million genetically modified mosquitoes in Florida and Texas is a step closer to fruition after a state regulator approved the idea, over the objections of many environmentalists.

    Oxitec, a British-based biotechnology company, has targeted the US as a test site for a special version of Aedes aegypti mosquitoes. The mosquitoes contain a protein that, when passed down to female offspring, will kill them and, it is hoped, prevent them from biting people and spreading diseases such as dengue fever and Zika.

    The Dummy’s Guide to Authoritarianism (Or, the Long Kiss Goodbye to the Good Life)

    By Dustin Broadbery

    Power politics of the 21st century has acquired a need for legitimacy. And quite rightly so. Gone are the days of marauding despots, kings and thieves, unashamedly plundering, wreaking havoc and having first dibs on the common man’s virgin bride, all under the good name of tyranny. No, today’s power elite has an expensive veneer and intoxicating pizzazz. They are credible and civilised (so long as you’re not on the receiving end of one of their long-range missiles) and, importantly, they have the solutions to solve the world’s problems.

    Indeed, present-day authoritarians have buried their more charming attributes deep within the cachet of five-thousand-dollar suits, faces full of teeth and million-dollar smiles. But don’t be fooled. Beneath the veneer of television voices, lurks the same contaminated DNA that has possessed the maddened minds of vanquishers throughout the golden age of despotism. No blood test is required...

    Smart Society, Stupid People

    Authored by Jeffrey Tucker via The American Institute for Economic Research,

    “Run away and hide” seems to have replaced anything like a sophisticated understanding of viruses and immunities.

    For all of recorded history, humans have done a deadly dance with viruses. Measles, smallpox, polio, and influenza viruses changed the course of human history: Measles and smallpox killed hundreds of thousands of Native Americans; polio killed and crippled people, including US President Franklin Delano Roosevelt; and the 1918 influenza epidemic killed more people than were killed during all of World War I.

    For most viruses that attack humans, your only defenses are prevention and your own immune systems. Antibiotics don’t kill viruses, and scientists haven’t discovered many effective antiviral drugs.

    AI Algorithm Solves Mystery of California’s Enigmatic Tiny Earthquake Swarm©

    A succession of mysterious multiplying minor earthquakes have rumbled in Southern California since 2016, with most of the 22,000 temblors too small to even be felt by humans. The source of this activity has puzzled scientists for years.

    Naturally circulating groundwater was the source of a succession of tiny earthquakes that rumbled for four years underneath the Southern California town of Cahuilla, claims a new seismological study published in Science on 19 June.

    According to authors of the report, entitled “3D fault architecture controls the dynamism of earthquake swarms”, they utilized advanced methods of earthquake monitoring, resorting to a computer algorithm to recognize the faint rumbles, identify their probable source, and track how swarms such as this one spread through complex fault networks.

    FLASHBACK: Proof Of George Soros Nazi Past Finally Comes To Light With Discovery Of Forgotten Interview

    When Hitler’s henchman Adolf Eichmann arrived in Hungary, to oversee the murder of that country’s Jews, George Soros ended up with a man whose job was confiscating property from the Jewish population

    George Soros and other rich liberals who spent tens of millions of dollars trying to elect Hillary Clinton are gathering in Washington for a three-day, closed door meeting to retool the big-money left to fight back against Donald Trump. Since Soros name is very much in the headlines in 2016, let’s take a look at an interview he gave in 1998 about his Nazi past.
