Meet Biscuits And Gravy, The Kitten That Was Just Born With Two Faces

When the King family of Oregon woke up on May 20, 2020, they were greeted with a miraculous surprise. Among their family cat’s new litter of kittens was one dark-furred tabby with what appeared to be two faces — that’s right, two faces on one cat.

According to local Portland news station KOIN-TV, the two-faced kitten was part of a six-kitten litter that had been birthed overnight. The family, after recovering from their initial shock, decided to name the unique furball Biscuits and Gravy. They call it Biscuit for short.

Do antidepressants really work? Danish study says otherwise

In a recent study, a team of researchers from the Nordic Cochrane Centre in Copenhagen, Denmark said that the research on the effectiveness of antidepressants as a treatment for depression lacks conclusive evidence.

According to Asger Sand Paludan-Muller, one of the study authors, data from previous investigations on antidepressants are often of poor quality. Therefore, it is difficult to draw conclusions about the efficacy or effectiveness of these medications.

The researchers also found that past studies failed to show how antidepressants are more effective than placebo or alternative treatments. They observed a systemic distortion of results in about 79 percent of the studies they analyzed. In these studies, the positive effects of antidepressants were emphasized but the reported side effects had glaring inconsistencies.

Researchers: Vitamin D deficiency may lead to severe COVID-19 complications, death

One of the findings of the Northwestern University researchers indicated that patients from countries with high COVID-19 mortality rates, such as Italy, Spain and the U.K., often exhibited lower levels of vitamin D than patients from other countries that were not as severely affected.

In addition, patients who manifested severe vitamin D deficiency had a 17.3 percent risk of developing severe COVID-19 symptoms, compared to patients with normal vitamin D levels who only had a 14.6 percent risk.

Upon further analysis, the researchers also found a strong correlation between vitamin D deficiency and cytokine storms, a potentially fatal type of complication that usually arises when the immune system goes into overdrive.

...

[T]he majority of COVID-19 fatalities are actually caused by cytokine storms.

Volunteer experienced severe 103 F fever after receiving experimental coronavirus vaccine

A volunteer who participated in clinical trials for Moderna Therapeutics’ Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine says he suffered serious side effects during the testing stage. However, Ian Haydon says that he doesn’t regret it and still wants people to get the vaccine when it’s available.

Despite experiencing these side effects, Haydon remains an advocate of the vaccine. The 29-year old Seattle native had previously spoken about the vaccine on CNN and CNBC, stating that he’d even volunteer to be exposed to SARS-CoV-2 – the pathogen behind the pandemic – if researchers want to see if the vaccine is actually effective.

But Haydon also admitted to STAT News that he wanted to speak up about his negative experiences as a counterbalance to the desperation that some feel to push a vaccine to market regardless of the consequences.

Were Conditions for High Death Rates at Care Homes Created on Purpose?

During the COVID-19 pandemic, people in care homes have been dying in droves.

Why is this happening? Is it simply because older adults are very vulnerable to SARS-CoV-2 and therefore it’s not unexpected that many would succumb?

Or do care homes deserve the lion’s share of the blame, such as by paying so poorly that many workers have to split their time between several facilities, spreading the virus in the process?

Alternatively, could medical experts and government bureaucrats, with the full knowledge of at least the top tier of government officials, have created conditions shortly after the pandemic struck that contribute to the high death tolls while engendering virtually no public backlash against themselves?

This article shows that the third hypothesis is highly plausible. The people who created the conditions may be unaware of, or oblivious to, their implications. But it’s also possible that at least some of them know exactly what they’re doing.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As Mike will tell you, I am the industrial-strength "Polyanna" in this little family of two. That being said, and although I would like the answers to the questions asked here, be a simple, "HELL, no!!", what the author is proposing may well be very plausible.

Not all nursing homes, or assisted living places are the same, and I understand that because I have family members still in lock-down in two assisted living facilities, which are moving heaven and earth not to get even one guest ill with this horrific bug.

"It Felt Like An Earthquake": SpaceX Prototype Starship Blows Up In Massive Explosion Day Ahead Of Manned Launch

In a horribly spectacular failure with the added bad timing of coming almost exactly 24 hours ahead of SpaceX and NASA's rescheduled attempt to make history by launching two astronauts into Earth's orbit as part of work on the Commercial Crew program, set for 3:22 pm ET Saturday weather permitting, the Raptor engine in SpaceX's Starship SN4 prototype blew up on its test stand in Boca Chica, Texas.

“SpaceX just experienced the biggest explosion yet at its Texas site, where it’s testing prototypes for a Mars rocket,” The Atlantic's Marina Koren reported Friday afternoon.

"A resident who lives nearby — just 2 miles away — said it felt like an earthquake," she added. Koren noted that at this point it doesn't appear anyone in the surrounding community was hurt in the massive blast which shook the area for miles.

I’ve signed death certificates during Covid-19. Here’s why you can’t trust any of the statistics on the number of victims

By Malcolm Kendrick, doctor and author who works as a GP in the National Health Service in England.

...

Then, along comes Covid-19, and many of the rules – such as they were – went straight out the window. At one point, it was even suggested that relatives could fill in death certificates, if no-one else was available. Though I am not sure this ever happened.

What were we now supposed to do? If an elderly person died in a care home, or at home, did they die of Covid-19? Well, frankly, who knows? Especially if they didn’t have a test for Covid-19 – which for several weeks was not even allowed. Only patients entering hospital were deemed worthy of a test. No-one else.

What advice was given? It varied throughout the country, and from coroner to coroner – and from day to day. Was every person in a care home now to be diagnosed as dying of the coronavirus ? Well, that was certainly the advice given in several parts of the UK.

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.

...

“Our analysis shows that it might be as high as cutting the mortality rate in half,” Backman said. “It will not prevent a patient from contracting the virus, but it may reduce complications and prevent death in those who are infected.”

How Scientists Influenced Monkeys’ Decisions Using Ultrasound in Their Brains

A few years ago, in a pitch black room at Stanford University, a monkey sat silently in his custom-made chair, utterly bewildered.

It wasn’t because of the head brace, which held his head completely still. It wasn’t the LCD screen blasting bright light in his face. It wasn’t even the abstract shapes that randomly popped up on the screen; he knew if he picked them wisely with his gaze he’d get a sip of deliciously sweet juice. What puzzled him was that sometimes he just couldn’t make the correct decision. He’d look at the wrong target, knowing it was wrong, but still stare at it like a puppet. It was as if someone was playing with his brain.

In this case, the monkey was right. A team of scientists was pulsing imperceptible ultrasound waves through his skull into frontal parts of his brain, and tacitly controlling which object he looked at. The monkey no longer had a choice.

If that’s possible with rhesus macaque monkeys, could we be next?

Prestigious medical journal urges outpatient use of hydroxychloroquine regimen for COVID-19

A prestigious medical journal is criticizing news media coverage of hydroxychlorioquine in the battle against coronavirus, saying there is evidence the anti-malarial drug combined with the antibiotic azithromycin helps in the early stages of outpatient treatment.

"These medications need to be widely available and promoted immediately for physicians to prescribe," the American Journal of Epidemiology reported in an article published this week that pushed back against claims the regimen has been dangerous or ineffective in all cases.

JAMA Bombshell: "universal masking may lead to more transmission of Covid-19"

A new article published in The New England Journal of Medicine points out that the main benefit of masks is that it eases anxiety of some people, which JAMA points out "may not be strictly logical." Here are some key excerpts from the New JAMA article: "We know that wearing a mask outside health care facilities offers little, if any, protection from infection. Focusing on universal masking alone may, paradoxically, lead to more transmission of Covid-19 if it diverts attention from implementing more fundamental infection-control measures...fear and anxiety are better countered with data and education than with a marginally beneficial mask, particularly in light of the worldwide mask shortage, but it is difficult to get clinicians to hear this message in the heat of the current crisis.

'Thousands' Of Dutch COVID-19 Survivors Likely Have Permanent Lung Damage According To Top Pulmonologist

COVID-19 may be far less deadly than originally projected - and asymptomatic cases may be even more common than first suspected, but for those who have caught it and come down with symptoms, the disease can result in lasting symptoms, including shortness of breath, lethargy, recurrent fevers, headaches, itchiness and other mystery problems that aren't going away.

To that end, a top pulmonologist in the Netherlands says that thousands of Dutch residents who have recovered from COVID-19 may be left with permanent lung damage, resulting in decreased lung capacity and difficulty absorbing oxygen.

COVID19: A Controlled Study

By Colleen Huber, NMD

Abstract

The COVID19 era is characterized among other things by lockdowns in countries around the world and in US states, imposed by their governments, attempting to limit movement, activities and commerce of individuals and businesses, for the stated goal of limiting COVID19 incidence and mortality.

In this paper, I examine CDC data regarding the COVID19 deaths in US states that did not have lockdowns (the control group), herein “free states,” compared to neighboring states that did have lockdowns (the experimental group), herein “locked states.” I examined neighboring states that share long borders, rather than touching at only corners or short segments, and then I examine neighboring states, free vs lockdown, that have similar population density...

Even mild coronavirus illness leads to antibodies: French study raises hope of immunity for Covid-19 patients who escaped severe symptoms

Researchers analysed the blood of 160 medics who all had a mild form of Covid-19 and had not needed hospital care.

They found 99.4 per cent of the group had antibodies to the virus 13 days after their symptoms, which signals they have some form of protection against it.

CDC Confirms Extremely Low COVID-19 Death Rate

The CDC just came out with a report that should be earth-shattering to the narrative of the political class, yet it will go into the thick pile of vital data and information about the virus that is not getting out to the public. For the first time, the CDC has attempted to offer a real estimate of the overall death rate for COVID-19, and under its most likely scenario, the number is 0.26%. Officials estimate a 0.4% fatality rate among those who are symptomatic and project a 35% rate of asymptomatic cases among those infected, which drops the overall infection fatality rate (IFR) to just 0.26% — almost exactly where Stanford researchers pegged it a month ago.

...

Until now, we have been ridiculed for thinking the death rate was that low, as opposed to the 3.4% estimate of the World Health Organization, which helped drive the panic and the lockdowns. Now the CDC is agreeing to the lower rate in plain ink.

Odds of Death: A Numbers Game

I was pondering the odds of dying from Covid19, so I divided the US population by the (supposed) number of US Covid deaths to date. It turns out 1 in 3281 die from Covid, thus indicating the following are considerably more deadly:

Heart disease: 1 in 6
Cancer: 1 in 7
Stroke: 1 in 28
Accidental poisoning by toxic substances: 1 in 130
Falls: 1 in 171
Car accident: 1 in 303
Assault by firearms: 1 in 306
Motorcycle accident: 1 in 770
Accidental drowning: 1 in 1,123
Exposure to smoke/fire: 1 in 1,177

It strikes me that the corporate media is making much ado about nothing.

Also, more than 2700 children are born in the US every day. There are only 3 days where the Covid death rate has exceeded this https://ourworldindata.org/grapher/daily-covid-deaths-3-day-average.

Covid-19 & Blood Clots, Cayenne, Cocoa, Pink Salt, and More

Covid19 binds to and smothers ACE2 which is needed to convert angiotensin 2 to 1,7, which as a result causes all kinds of blood vessel endothelial damage and thrombosis, mainly ROS and increased von Willebrand clotting factors. The tiny blood vessels in the lungs, kidneys, heart and even brain can get clots, and oxygen goes down. Here I talk about various treatments that counteract this and helped me during my recovery stage of the infection.

CALIFORNIA HOSPITAL RECORDS MORE SUICIDES THAN CORONAVIRUS DEATHS DURING LOCKDOWN

Doctors at a hospital in California say they have recorded more deaths from suicide than coronavirus, with a year’s worth of suicides and suicide attempts being recorded in a 4 week period.

“Doctors at John Muir Medical Center in Walnut Creek say they have seen more deaths by suicide during this quarantine period than deaths from the COVID-19 virus,” reports ABC 7.

Dr. Mike deBoisblanc, the head of trauma at the hospital, said that he’d never seen suicide at this rate and that the numbers were “unprecedented.” He now says its time to fully end the lockdown.

“I think, originally, this (the shelter-in-place order) was put in place to flatten the curve and to make sure hospitals have the resources to take care of COVID patients.We have the current resources to do that and our other community health is suffering,” said Dr. deBoisblanc.

A veteran nurse who has been at the hospital for 33 years also sounded the alarm bell.

Vaccine Expert Testifies to Congress That Coronavirus Vaccine Killed 2 Children

Dr. Peter Hotez Addressing House Science, Space, and Technology Committee Hearing on Coronavirus, March 5, 2020 : "When I say scientific challenge, one of the things we are not hearing a lot about is potential safety problems of coronavirus vaccines. This was first found in the 1960s with respiratory interstitial virus vaccines done in Washington with the NIH and Children's National Medical Center. Some of those kids who got the vaccine did worse and I believe there were two deaths. What happens with certain types of respiratory virus vaccine, to get immunized and when you are exposed to the virus you get this paradoxical enhancement phenomenon. We don't entirely understand the basis of it, that we recognize there's a real problem with certain respiratory virus vaccines. That killed the program for decades and now the Gates foundation is taking it up again, but then we start developing coronavirus vaccines.

Face masks are too dangerous for children under two and make it too difficult for them to breathe, Japanese experts warn

The Japan Paediatric Association has advised parents not to place masks on infants under two - despite Japan's coronavirus guidelines urging every individual to wear a mask.

In a leaflet issued to the Japanese public the medical body warned that infants could experience an increased burden on their lungs due to the covering of their mouths, reports CNN.

They added that the masks also obstruct the child's face, making it more difficult for parents to notice changes in expression or the colour to the face which could indicate breathing issues.

SpaceX, NASA and other space agencies could be charged a yearly-fee of up to $235,000 for every satellite they launch to try and clamp down on debris in orbit

Researchers from the University of Colorado Boulder say an international agreement would be needed in order to charge operators 'orbital use fees' for every satellite.

The amount charged would increase each year to 2040 up to $235,000, according to the team, who say the orbit becomes clearer each year, reducing the risk costs.

The team say that by charging an annual fee for every satellite in orbit, companies would have an incentive to remove them when they are no longer needed.

About 20,000 objects, including satellites and space debris are crowding low-Earth orbit and a collision between objects could generate thousands of small pieces.

Birch Tree Medicine and BigPharma

Chaga is a medicinal derived from the great northern arc of birch forests, with centuries of use, allegedly anti-degenerative-disease and bing bing, anti-viral. We're unlikely to hear a word about it in the televised scuffles about which drug, cheap with decades of data, or new ones, profiteer-priced.

When the dragon disease reports reached relatives in the PNW, they sent Chaga across, before everything was shut down--roads barricaded, apartment doors welded shut, no flights from there to anywhere within the dragon. It being Lunar New Year, and traditionally the major travel time, big go-ahead was given to international destinations.

A doctor of dragon medicine in the quarantined industrial city, prescribed Chaga. His patients did not get sick, did not die, according to anecdotal report. You may note that words no longer permitted by techie arbiters of Free Speech are missing, in order to sidestep slap-down. Good thing I have sufficient vocabulary to draw on.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In these days of enforced (and soon to be very enforced vaccinations, particularly for Covid-19, in which the US military appears to be getting ready to be involved), it is comforting to know that there are still some natural resources which may be of help.

TRUMP APPOINTS BIG PHARMA EXEC CONNECTED TO BILL GATES TO HEAD VACCINE DEVELOPMENTS

SOURCE: THE LAST AMERICAN VAGABOND
On Friday, Donald Trump announced his appointment of Moncef Slaoui, a former executive with vaccine manufacturer GlaxoSmithKline, to lead “Operation Warp Speed”, Trump’s plan to fast track the development of vaccines for COVID-19. Slaoui will serve in a volunteer position, assisted by Army Gen. Gustave Perna, the commander of United States Army Materiel Command.

According to the Trump administration, Operation Warp Speed program is focusing on four vaccines, with the hopes of testing and producing 100 million doses by October 2020, 200 million by December, and 300 million doses by January. At Friday’s press conference, Slaoui said he believes the goal of vaccines by January 2021 is a “credible goal”. Secretary of Defense Mark Esper was more adamant, stating that, “winning matters and we will deliver, by the end of this year, a vaccine”.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

(Sigh) it appears that the guy who, previous to the last election swore to the American voters that he would "drain the swamp" in DC, is surfing in the wake of its pond scum.

Bill Gates has blood on his hands from previous medical trials gone horrifically south, and if President Trump is aligning with one of his minions, in this case, it doesn't at all look good for any kind of vaccine freedom whatsoever.

And there is an article from May of last year, with which you should familiarize yourself: HRSA Vaccine Compensation

The article goes on to state: "How many petitions have been awarded compensation?
According to the CDC, from 2006 to 2017 over 3.4 billion doses of covered vaccines were distributed in
the U.S. For petitions filed in this time period, 6,293 petitions were adjudicated by the Court, and of
those 4,311 were compensated. This means for every 1 million doses of vaccine that were distributed,
approximately 1 individual was compensated.
Since 1988, over 20,629 petitions have been filed with the VICP. Over that 30-year time period, 17,875
petitions have been adjudicated, with 6,551 of those determined to be compensable, while 11,324 were
dismissed. Total compensation paid over the life of the program is approximately $4.1 billion.

And remember; all the proof for these cases, rests entirely on the shoulders of the plaintiffs. $4.1 billion is a hell of a lot of money to have had to pay out on allegedly "safe" vaccines.

Although some of the “powers that be” continue to compare this current pandemic to the “Spanish Flu” of 100+ years ago – there seem to be many eerie similarities with the “Swine Flu” shenanigans of the 1970s.

Thanks to Children’s Health Defense for creating this timeline which provides some very unsavory details of what brought us to where we are today...

Immunity certificates to allow people who have recovered from coronavirus to be freed from social distancing rules are planned by ministers as they order 10 MILLION antibody tests to see who has had it

Hancock announced contracts for 10m antibody tests had been signed which would be given to NHS first
Health Secretary told yesterday's briefing: 'We're developing this critical science to know the impact of a positive antibody test and to develop the systems of certification to ensure people who have positive antibodies can be given assurances of what they can safely do'
The antibody tests - also known as serology tests - show who has been infected, although it is not yet clear whether the presence of antibodies to the new coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2, confers permanent immunity
Mr Hancock tried to play down the failure to get the NHS coronavirus app off the ground - pushed back further from mid-May yesterday - and instead was expansive on the new testing roll out
But the app is considered vital to the Government's 'test, track and trace' programme to end the lockdown

Coronavirus or no, why do we have so many people in nursing homes?

Each day, we learn more about the dreadful toll that COVID-19 has exacted on nursing home residents. There is much to say about the inadequate staffing and lack of enforcement that predated the coronavirus and worsened its impact. But as this crisis makes us reexamine many things we long took for granted, so too should it prompt us to also ask why so many older adults are left with little choice but to reside in these facilities in the first place.

Earth's magnetic field is WEAKENING between Africa and South America, causing satellites and spacecraft to malfunction

A large region of reduced magnetic intensity has been observed between Africa and South America, called the South Atlantic Anomaly, and it has formed a center of minimum intensity in just five years.

Researchers are speculating that the weakening is a sign that Earth is heading to a pole reversal, which is when the north and south poles switch places - and the last time this occurred was 780,000 years ago.

The anomaly is wreaking havoc on satellites and other spacecraft flying through the area, as many are experiencing technical malfunctions.

The discovery was made by a team at the Europe Space Agency (ESA) who pulled date from the agency's Swarm constellation, which is a cluster of satellites.

The satellites are specifically designed to identify and measure the different magnetic signals that make up Earth's magnetic field, allow experts to spot areas that have weakened.

Gazans brace themselves for worst following discovery of more coronavirus infections

Fear is growing in the Gaza Strip following the discovery of more coronavirus infections.

Battered by a punishing blockade and three wars since 2007, the blockaded enclave is no match for the deadly virus. Hospitals and clinics are already struggling to cope with chronic illnesses due to shortages in medications.

The first cases of coronavirus infection were confirmed in the impoverished enclave on March the 22nd prompting tight restrictions by local authorities.

All those infected with COVID-19 in Gaza have been quarantined and have not mixed with the broader population.

People in Gaza fear that shortages of medical supplies could set off a rapid spread of the lethal disease.

Scientists Explain How Monkey 'Mind Control' Could Help Humans Quit Drug Addiction

The research team believes that their 'neuromodulation' technique could, after further study and development, be used to treat brain disorders and drug addiction in humans.

A group of scientists from the University of Utah and Stanford University succeeded in controlling the choice behaviours of two monkeys by targeting specific parts of their brains with ultrasound waves, according to a research paper published on Wednesday by the journal Science Advances.

The team delivered inaudible, high frequency sound waves to the brains of the two animals by means of a non-invasive instrument similar to an ultrasound wand used in medical scans.

Food supply in danger? Beekeepers lost 40% of honey bee colonies in a year

The Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) annual Honey Bee Colonies report has detailed a decline in honey bee populations following the recent budget cuts by the Trump Administration.

A nationwide survey led by the University of Maryland’s non-profit organization Bee Informed Partnership shows that beekeepers lost 40.7 percent of their honey bee colonies in just one year — from April 2018 to April 2019. Researchers caution that this trend could soon affect food crops because these pollinating insects assume a critical job in the fertilization of plants.
