Paris Health Official Urges "Cancel Christmas & New Year's" As Virus Ravages Europe

France and the UK are in the midst of their second month-long lockdowns after rising numbers of COVID-19 cases while headed into the winter months. Both are enforcing tight new restrictions on their populations including closures of pubs, restaurants and other businesses deemed "non-essential".

And now some health officials are even talking "canceling Christmas" as absurd as that sounds. An influential health official in Paris has called for Christmas and New Year's celebrations to be cancelled across the country in statements Tuesday.

Fearing another virus resurgence that will overwhelm medical facilities, Paris hospital director Julien Lenglet told RMC Radio on Tuesday that "without any hesitation, that we ought to cancel Christmas and Saint-Sylvestre" — the latter being a reference to traditional New Year's Eve parties.

Why Did Pfizer and FDA Agree to Not Release the News of the Vaccine's Success in October as the Original Protocol Would Have Required?

Interesting choice of data to resume testing of cases. Was there anything in particular scheduled for last Tuesday? It seems like last Tuesday was a big day, but I can’t remember why. I’m sure, though, it was in all the papers at the time.

For Better Health and a Stronger Economy, Don’t Lock Down Again

European countries are imposing harsh lockdowns again as a second wave of COVID-19 spreads throughout Europe. It was a mistake last spring, when most U.S. states followed Europe’s lead in imposing lockdowns during the first wave, and it would be an even bigger mistake to copy the failed lockdowns again today.

I was stunned when Italy imposed regional lockdowns in late February and a national lockdown on March 9. In short order, most other European countries did the same. Then, influenced by the sensational predictions from Neil Ferguson’s team at Imperial College London that more than 500,000 Britons and 2.2 million Americans might die from the virus, the United Kingdom and most of the United States followed suit.

More Evidence We're Being Set Up For The Kill As Leftists Scheme 'Great Purge' Of Conservatives And Globalists Prepare Mass Distribution Of 'Covid-19 Kill Shot'

With globalists and democrats now firmly believing that Joe Biden will become America's next president in January of 2021, we're not the least bit surprised that the msm has announced that 'big pharma terrorist-group funder', Pfizer, has announced a 'Covid-19 breakthrough' that is allegedly 90% effective at preventing people from catching the 'disease'.

And with almost every mainstream media outlet, including the Drudge Report as their lead headline, now 'pushing' this 'miraculous' story, we remind you that months ago, President Trump's son Eric warned America that Covid-19 would somehow just 'disappear' after the election, giving even more credibility to the argument that this 'virus' was 'created' to help hand the election to globalist Joe Biden.

PTSD, panic attacks, insomnia: 1 in 5 Covid-19 patients develop mental illness within three months, new study finds

A sizeable portion of Covid-19 patients have been diagnosed with mental disorders months after testing positive for the coronavirus, a large study of health records has found.

In a study published in The Lancet Psychiatry journal, researchers from the University of Oxford have analyzed electronic medical record of 69 million people living in the US. It included 62,354 individuals who were diagnosed with Covid-19 between January 20 and August 1.

The scientists found that 20 percent of those infected with the coronavirus were diagnosed for the first time with some sort of mental illness within 90 days after testing positive for Covid-19. The main conditions recorded were different anxiety disorders, including adjustment disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, and panic disorder, as well as insomnia and dementia.

Catholic priest is facing £1,000 fine for breaching lockdown rules after TWO HUNDRED travellers turned up for wedding - despite being told just 15 guests would be attending

A Catholic Priest is facing a £1,000 fine for breaching Lockdown rules after 200 guests turned up for a gypsy wedding at his church when the legal limit was only 15.

Police entered the Our Lady of the Angels church in Nuneaton to tell Revd Father Simon Hall that he could expect a summons through the post.

The illegal wedding took place on November 3, two days before the country was plunged into its second national lockdown.

Joe Biden Coronavirus Adviser: Vaccine Should Be Distributed Globally, Not to America First

Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, who was named to Joe Biden’s coronavirus advisory team on Monday, published a paper in September arguing that any coronavirus vaccine should be distributed globally according to something called the “Fair Priority Model.”

Emanuel, the lead author on a paper in Science called “An ethical framework for global vaccine allocation,” argued that there should be a “fair international distribution of vaccine,” rather than what he and his co-authors call “vaccine nationalism.”

“Reasonable national partiality does not permit retaining more vaccine than the amount needed to keep the rate of transmission (Rt) below 1, when that vaccine could instead mitigate substantial COVID-19–related harms in other countries that have been unable to keep Rt below 1 through ongoing public-health efforts,” Emanuel and his co-authors write.

Smoking Gun: Dr. Fauci States COVID Test Has Fatal Flaw; Confession from the “Beloved” Expert of Experts

OK, here we go. Smoking gun. Jackpot.

Right from the horse’s mouth. Right from the man we’re told is the number-one COVID expert in the nation. What Fauci says is golden truth.

Well, how about THIS?

July 16, 2020, podcast, “This Week in Virology”: Tony Fauci makes a point of saying the PCR COVID test is useless and misleading when the test is run at “35 cycles or higher.” A positive result, indicating infection, cannot be accepted or believed.

Here, in techno-speak, is an excerpt from Fauci’s key quote (starting at about the 4-minute mark [1]):

“…If you get [perform the test at] a cycle threshold of 35 or more…the chances of it being replication-confident [aka accurate] are miniscule…you almost never can culture virus [detect a true positive result] from a 37 threshold cycle…even 36…”

Each “cycle” of the test is a quantum leap in amplification and magnification of the test specimen taken from the patient.

THIRD study finds that COVID-19 antibodies fade “very, very quickly,” rendering vaccine useless

The third such study in recent days to make this suggestion, a new paper published by researchers from Guy’s and St. Thomas’ National Health Service Foundation Trust in London has determined that the antibodies developed after infection with the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) only last a very short time, meaning any future vaccine for the novel virus will be certifiably useless.

After analyzing the immune responses of patients and health care workers who became infected with the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19), researchers from this institution found that the antibodies created to destroy the virus waned rather quickly, typically within just a few short weeks. After a couple of months, only 16.7 percent of patients still had any antibody response at all.

Newfound survivor camp may explain fate of the famed Lost Colony of Roanoke

Pieces of broken crockery recently unearthed in a North Carolina field belonged to survivors of the ill-fated Lost Colony, the first English settlement in the Americas. That dramatic claim has stoked a long-simmering debate over what happened to the 115 men, women, and children abandoned on North Carolina’s Roanoke Island in 1587.

Working on a bluff overlooking Albemarle Sound, 50 miles west of Roanoke Island, a team from the First Colony Foundation uncovered a trove of English, German, French, and Spanish pottery pieces.

“The number and variety of artifacts recovered provide compelling evidence that the site was inhabited by several settlers from Sir Walter Raleigh’s vanished 1587 colony,” said archaeologist Nick Luccketti, the team’s leader.

New Evidence: There Was Another Planet in the Solar System That Escaped

According to team of scientists at the Carnegie Institution for Science, an additional planet located between Saturn and Uranus got flung out of the solar system while it was still in its infancy.

The theory goes that the Sun was once surrounded by a disk of gas and dust. Through countless collisions, planets started to form, orbiting our star at a relatively short distance.

The more massive planets then kicked off a series of gravitational interactions, causing the planets to reshuffle into their current arrangement.

SpaceX Starlink Broadband Beta Testers "Amazed" By Its Speed, As New Photos Emerge

Photos are starting to leak from SpaceX Starlink beta users, who are trying the satellite broadband service in remote areas for the first time. So far, the beta testing appears to be going far better than that of full self driving.

One beta tester shared his experience on Reddit after he brought his Starlink equipment to a remote forest in Idaho. There, he said he was able to achieve 120Mbps download speeds and access the internet at lightning fast speed.

Wisdom from Courageous – and Silenced – Whistle-blowing “Vaccine Skeptics”

“Mercury/thimerosal and lead (and aluminum) are extremely neurotoxic and cytotoxic, but their combined synergistic effect is much worse.

A dose of mercury sufficient to kill 1% of tested rats, when combined with a dose of lead sufficient to kill less than 1% of rats, resulted in killing 100% of rats tested.

Mercury has a similar synergistic effect with aluminum, which is also in most vaccines.” — Bernard Windham, M.D.

CERN Scientific Team Develops Transportable 'Antimatter Trap'

Antimatter is matter defined in modern physics as being composed of antiparticles of the corresponding particles of "normal" matter. CERN's BASE team conducts the research, and is behind several antimatter breakthroughs.

A BASE collaboration at CERN (European Organization for Nuclear Research) revealed that it is developing a "transportable antiproton trap", which will allow the transportation of antiprotons from CERN's Antimatter Decelerator (AD) to other laboratories to continue examination.

Currently, antiprotons are stored in a device called a Penning Trap, which holds particles in place with a combination of electric and magnetic fields. Those entrapped particles are then fed into a multi-Penning-Trap set-up to measure two frequencies - a cyclotron frequency, which describes a charged particle’s oscillation in a magnetic field, and a Larmor frequency, which describes the so-called precessional motion in the trap of the intrinsic spin of the particle.

DAVID MELLOR: They're sending us to hell in a handcart on the back of a dossier so dodgy even Tony Blair wouldn't have touched it

Surely now is the time for Boris Johnson to offer the courage of his hero Winston Churchill.

We need it more than ever. Yet last week he became the reincarnation of LedruRollin, the French revolutionary, who, as the mob rampaged through Paris in 1848, declared: 'I must follow them, for I am their leader!'

What else can we make of his decision to hide beneath the mess of unreliable and inaccurate data from Chief Scientific Adviser Sir Patrick Vallance, and his Chief Medical Officer Chris Whitty?

After some pretence of sticking up for his Chancellor Rishi Sunak, the one resolute figure this Government has yet produced, Johnson then followed his Brexit supremo Michael Gove, and his Health Secretary Matt Hancock, in swallowing everything Vallance and Whitty served up.

NHC Says Hurricane Warning Issued for Florida Keys, Florida Bay

Tropical storm Eta pounded central Cuba with torrential rain on Sunday, bursting the banks of rivers and causing flash flooding in some towns before exiting via the island's northern coast and churning on track to the Florida keys.

Tens of thousands of Cubans had evacuated ahead of Eta's landfall early on Sunday, state-run media reported, after the storm killed dozens in flooding and landslides across Central America and southern Mexico.

Packing maximum sustained winds of 95 kilometers (59 miles) per hour, Eta dumped up to 328 millimeters (12.9 inches)of rain on central Cuba, Cuba's meteorology office said, warning the ground would struggle to absorb this as it was already saturated due to recent heavy rains.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center (NHC) said that waves of heavy rain were already spreading across South Florida and the Florida Keys, and 6-12 inches (152.4 mm to 304.8 mm) of rain were possible over this region during the next few days.

Eta strengthening on its way toward Cuba, warnings issued for Cayman Islands, Cuba, Bahamas and Florida

Tropical Cyclone "Eta" -- blamed for the deaths of more than 170 people in Central America over the past few days -- is expected to gradually re-strengthen on its approach to Cuba as it remains over warm waters and in a region of upper-level diffluence. Eta's center will approach the Cayman Islands later today, be near central Cuba tonight and Sunday, and near the Florida Keys or South Florida Sunday night and Monday, November 9.

However, by the time Eta reaches Cuba, the models show an increase in southwesterly wind shear and drier air being drawn into the circulation.

These factors should cause Eta to level off in strength, and likely become asymmetric, NHC forecaster Cangialosi noted on November 7.

When Eta interacts and merges with the upper low, it will likely take on a subtropical appearance and develop a large wind field near southern Florida.

The storm is forecast to slowly weaken when it passes to the west of Florida as it moves in a drier environment.

What lockdown? Market in London is PACKED with little social distancing or a mask in sight as visitors help themselves to takeaway beer and Britons flout new rules in their thousands

Britons flouted lockdown in their hundreds of thousands in London today as a market was packed with visitors helping themselves to takeaway beer on the first weekend of new coronavirus lockdown restrictions.

Londoners flocked to Broadway Market for drinks and food this afternoon, despite the new guidance to stay at home as much as possible.

People were pictured queuing up for pints outside street food restaurants and packing the streets, with many not wearing face masks.

MAIL ON SUNDAY COMMENT: If lockdown goes on one day beyond December 2, it's curtains for Boris, the Tories – and for Britain

A week ago, we said there was a whiff of Tony Blair about the Government's case for a second lockdown. It felt rather too much like the launch of the 2003 dodgy dossier on Iraq's weapons of mass destruction, which was used to stampede the nation into the Iraq War, to the eventual regret of almost everyone.

We were more correct than we knew. In the following days, it became clear that graphs and projections used to justify the renewed shutdown were decidedly dodgy, and should never have been published.

CRISPR gene-editing mistake results in over a dozen mutant embryos

Scientists using a controversial gene-editing device unwittingly created more than a dozen mutant human embryos, according to a new study.

In an effort to repair a gene that causes blindness, researchers using a CRISPR DNA-cutting machine accidentally got rid of entire chromosomes, or large chunks of them, according to a study published Thursday in the journal Cell.

For the study, researchers at an undisclosed lab collected sperm from a man with hereditary blindness to create 40 embryos.

They then used a CRISPR-Cas9 tool — which functions like a microscopic scalpel — to cut out the gene mutation they wanted to correct in 37 of the embryos. The remaining three were serving as controls.

But about half of the embryos lost an entire chromosome, or large swaths of it, on the gene where the mutation causing blindness was located, according to the study.

Medical Doctor Warns that “Bacterial Pneumonias Are on the Rise” from Mask Wearing

“A group is suing Tulsa Mayor G.T. Bynum and Tulsa Health Department Executive Director Bruce Dart, saying the city’s mask mandate is harmful to healthy people,” reports Activist Post. The group includes business owners and two doctors who “are asking the city to immediately repeal the mask mandate which was passed by city council last month.”

At a press conference, optometrist Robert Zoellner said:

“…the fear factor has got to step back. This idea that I don’t want to give you something that I don’t even know that I have is almost at the point of ridiculous. Let’s use some common sense.”

Dr. James Meehan, MD followed by warning that mask wearing has “well-known risks that have been well-studied and they’re not being discussed in the risk analysis.

“I’m seeing patients that have facial rashes, fungal infections, bacterial infections. Reports coming from my colleagues, all over the world, are suggesting that the bacterial pneumonias are on the rise.

Cardinal Nichols tells Catholics to obey UK govt.’s new order to lock down churches

As another lockdown is implemented across England, banning public worship and only allowing private prayer in churches, Cardinal Vincent Nichols has issued a letter urging Catholics to be obedient to the restrictions.

The Catholic Bishops Conference of England and Wales (CBCEW) had previously issued a letter some days ago, demanding that the government provide the evidence for justifying closing churches for public worship.

A number of bishops also penned their own letters to MPs and government ministers, requesting evidence for the ban on Mass and warning of causing discord. Perhaps surprisingly, many MPs also raised the matter in Parliament, warning of the precedent set by such an attack on religious liberty, without any evidence presented to justify the measures.

New Irish law banning gatherings threatens prison for priests who say Mass

As a result of an astonishing new law passed in Ireland last night, members of the clergy could now face imprisonment for celebrating Mass or other ceremonies.

An amendment was made to the 1947 Health Act, concerning temporary restrictions in the nation-wide lockdown, and passed into law by the Irish Parliament, or Dáil, on October 22. Article 8 of the new regulations outlines restrictions on events, and reads: “A person shall not organise, or cause to be organised, a relevant event in a relevant geographical location other than in accordance with paragraph (2).”

Paragraph (2) lists the only two permissible exceptions to the law, which are if the event takes place “only outdoors” and if the organizer “takes all reasonable steps to ensure that the event is attended, or proposed to be attended, by persons residing in no more than 2 different places of residence.”

7 Reliable Old-School Cleaners This Neighborhood Grocery Store Always Keeps In Stock

Roseville, Minn.

About a mile from my house, there’s a local grocery store I’ve been going to for ages. I spent my college years perusing the aisles of Lunds & Byerly’s for dorm staples like Pop-Tarts and Hot Pockets, and more than a decade later, I go there for everything from pantry essentials and, more recently, cleaning products. When my local big-box store was sold out of paper towels and Clorox wipes, Byerly’s often had what I needed—and more.

I noticed on a recent toilet paper run that Lunds & Byerly’s stocks tons of old-school cleaners I wasn’t familiar with. It made sense: The store is just down the road from a couple of assisted living communities, so much of its clientele is people who have been cleaning their homes for more decades than I’ve been alive. (I’d be remiss not to mention the abundance of retro cocktail mixers a few aisles down, and the full end-cap of bagged sugar-free candies.)

How Obesity Puts You At Risk For Covid-19

A new study, released as a preprint in the Lancet, has found that obesity is one of the three greatest risk factors for suffering the most serious consequences of Covid-19, including age. The study give us insight into why Covid-19 has a more serious consequence for the obese and overweight. Fat cells express the receptor for SARS-CoV-2, serving as a reservoir for virus infection. Those who are overweight and obese remain infected several days longer than their aged-matched leaner counterparts. Moreover, obesity creates an underlying inflammatory condition, one that very likely exacerbates the inflammation caused by SARS-C0V-2 infection, one of the leading causes of Covid-19 disease.

Asteroid Apophis is speeding up from sunlight as scientists recalculate odds of 2068 impact

Astronomers say they'll have to keep an eye on the near-Earth asteroid Apophis to see how much of a danger the space rock poses to our planet during a close pass in 2068. But don't panic: The chances of an impact still seem very low.

Under certain circumstances, the sun can heat an asteroid unevenly, causing the space rock to radiate away heat energy asymmetrically. The result can be a tiny push in a certain direction — an effect called Yarkovsky acceleration, which can change the path of an asteroid through space.

Since astronomers hadn't measured this solar push on Apophis before, they didn't take it into consideration when calculating the threat the asteroid poses to us in 2068. Those previous calculations showed a tiny impact probability — around 1 in 150,000.

Why Australians will be banned from going overseas for at least another YEAR - with a powerful government agency leaving a very strong hint

Australians are set to be banned from travelling overseas for at least another year - but restrictions could last even longer if there's another coronavirus outbreak.

Holidaymakers have been barred from leaving the country since March 25 and Prime Minister Scott Morrison has strongly indicated that restriction would continue until a coronavirus vaccine was developed.

The Reserve of Australia has now announced it expected the border to remain closed for at least another year, as it updated its economic forecasts.

'Some restrictions on international departures and arrivals are assumed to be in place until around the end of 2021,' it said on Friday.

Italy Imposing Night Curfew, Other Coronavirus Restrictions

Italian Premier Giuseppe Conte has signed off on new pandemic rules that include a nationwide overnight curfew and tighter restrictions on the country’s regions where infections are surging and hospitals risk running out of beds for COVID-19 patients.

The decree is to take effect Thursday. Regions to be hit with the strictest limits are to be announced Wednesday. Those restrictions include at least a two-week ban on entering or leaving the region’s territory and closure of all shops except essential ones like food stores.

One of those areas is expected to be the northern region of Lombardy. It bore the brunt of the pandemic earlier this year, and it is reeling again under a new surge, especially in its financial capital, Milan.

Delingpole: Lockdown Britain Steps Closer towards Totalitarianism

Today Britain’s MPs failed the most important test of their political careers.

They voted – by 516 to 38 – to turn the United Kingdom into a totalitarian police state.

From midnight Wednesday, the British population will be forced to spend a month (at least) under restrictions so severe that they make life behind the Iron Curtain in Soviet Bloc Soviet Eastern Europe look almost carefree by comparison.

Nobody will be allowed to travel abroad (except on approved business). Nobody will be able to go to pubs or restaurants or gyms or swimming pools (all closed, by order of the government). Nobody will be allowed to practise any form of sport — not golf, not tennis, not riding, not shooting, and definitely not any team games. Everybody will be kept under house arrest, other than for certain state-mandated exemptions such as being a designated ‘key worker’ or shopping for supplies (but only those designated ‘essential’).

Hungary to Start Importing Russian COVID-19 Vaccine in December, Foreign Minister Says

Hungary will begin purchasing a Russian coronavirus vaccine in December in small doses so that it could complete clinical trials and licensing on its soil, Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto said on Thursday.

The minister expressed hope that Budapest would import more doses in late January and possibly launch domestic production of the Russian vaccine.

"Russia will start delivering small doses of the vaccine in December to complete clinical trials, test the vaccine here and finalize the licensing process. They said they would be able to start large-scale deliveries from the second or third week of January," Szijjarto said in a video message published on Facebook.

Police Say Arrested 104 Participants of Anti-Lockdown Protests in London

The Metropolitan Police said 104 participants of the rally against the coronavirus-linked lockdown in London had been arrested over the breach of restrictions.

Hundreds of people gathered on Thursday in central London to express their protest against the tougher restrictions that came into force in the United Kingdom.

“Officers policing demonstrations in central London on Thursday, 5 November have so far made 104 arrests. Demonstrations took place in spite of new national restrictions which have been introduced to limit the spread of Coronavirus. As soon as crowds began gathering, officers took immediate action to direct people to go home, arrests were made as people failed to comply with the direction of officers. The majority of arrests were for breaches of the Coronavirus regulations,” police said in a statement on late Thursday.

In Unprecedented Move CDC Stops Tracking Influenza for 2020-21 Flu Season

I have been covering the fraud that happens every year with how the CDC tracks incidents and deaths due to the annual influenza for almost a decade now.

The numbers used each year to scare the public into getting the flu vaccine are based not on actual data, but estimates of number of people who die from the flu according to the CDC. Basically, anyone dying from “influenza-like” symptoms are all lumped together into supposed flu deaths each year. Autopsies are seldom performed to prove cause of death.

The CDC has admitted publicly in the past that these numbers are just “estimates.” If the real number of those infected with the influenza virus, and resulting deaths, were vastly lower than what the CDC reports based on their “estimates,” the public would have no way of knowing it.

So this has presented quite a dilemma for the CDC for the first couple of weeks of the 2020-21 flu season, which have just passed.

World's Largest Iceberg En Route to Collide With British Overseas Territory

The 150km-long A-68A iceberg, which broke away from Antarctica's Larsen C ice shelf in 2017, could lead to widespread disruption of wildlife and shipping routes in the area where the giant floating ice island is predicted to strike.

A gigantic Antarctic iceberg as big as a small country is heading toward the island of South Georgia, leading to worries that it could harm the British territory’s economy and wildlife.

The iceberg, named 'A-68A', broke away from the Larsen C ice shelf on Antarctica’s peninsular eastern coast in July 2017 and equals the entire island of South Georgia in size, where it is feared to be heading towards.

Oregon becomes first US state to decriminalise hard drugs

Oregon has become the first US state to decriminalise the possession of hard drugs, including cocaine and heroin.

People caught with small amounts of drugs for personal use will now have to pay a $100 (£77) fine or have a health check at an addiction-recovery centre.

Oregon also becomes the first state to legalise the therapeutic use of hallucinogenic mushrooms.

The new measures were approved by a public vote as part of a nationwide push to relax drug laws.

Elsewhere, voters in Arizona, New Jersey, Montana and South Dakota passed a ballot to legalise marijuana.

WATCH: Paris riot police use tear gas & pepper spray to disperse students protesting over insufficient Covid-19 measures

French police deployed tear gas to remove blockades outside at least 10 high schools in Paris as students staged protests over coronavirus protocols not followed properly as the new academic year got underway in the country.
Hundreds of high school students in the French capital protested against inadequate social distancing and coronavirus transmission mitigation measures on Tuesday, a day after schools reopened for a new term across France - less than one week after the country entered its second lockdown amid a surge in Covid-19 cases.

The students used trash cans to block the entrances to at least ten schools in the capital, with some of the worst tensions seen at The Colbert high school in the city’s 10th arrondissement and the Sophie-Germain school in the 4th arrondissement.

ILLINOIS UNDER COMPLETE LOCKDOWN AGAIN STARTING WEDNESDAY

All coronavirus scamdemic regions in the state of Illinois are going under lockdown again the day after the election. The state reported 35 deaths and 6,980 new cases on Sunday alone, which means more poverty and house arrest for the entire state.

According to WGNTV, Sunday’s numbers stop the streak of three straight recording-breaking case days. On Saturday, 7,899 new cases were reported with 46 additional deaths. We know this data is cherry-picked and propagated to get people on board with additional restrictions on their livelihoods and freedom. With Illinois going back into lockdown, this could be the future for the rest of the United States as well.

A week after Typhoon Molave killed 22 people the Philippines orders more evacuations as the world's biggest storm of 2020, category 5 Typhoon Goni

The world's biggest storm of 2020, category 5 Typhoon Goni, credit, Wikipedia

Last week Typhoon Molave killed 22 people in the Philippines, today the Philippines orders more evacuations as the worlds biggest storm of 2020, category 5 Typhoon Goni nears "Super Typhoon Status" and is expected to impact Metro Manila, population 13 million between Sunday evening and Monday morning.

As of Saturday morning, Rolly has maximum sustained winds of 215 kph and gustiness of up to 265 kph. It is close to reaching the 220 kph maximum wind speed to be classified as a supertyphoon. PAGASA is not ruling out its possible intensification into a super typhoon within 12 hours.

Estarreja said Rolly has a high chance of intensifying into a super typhoon while on its way to the country, but there is still a slim probability that it may make landfall as a supertyphoon. However, it is still expected to remain a strong typhoon or near super typhoon strength, by the time it makes landfall over Quezon.

Peaceful protests will be banned under new lockdown rules for England preventing two or more people from meeting, No10 has confirmed.

Demonstrations were exempt from restrictions on gatherings during the first national lockdown, with a series of Black Lives Matter rallies and anti-lockdown protests taking place over the summer.

But strict rules preventing people from meeting more than one other person during the second national lockdown will now apply to protests.

The Prime Minister's spokesman confirmed the draconian new rules will cover demos, which means peaceful protests of more than two people with be illegal.

The spokesman said: "Protests are not exempt from the rules.

Nutritional science: Lower your risks of heart attack and death from cancer by taking vitamin D and fish oil supplements

Taking fish oil lowers heart attack risk, while taking vitamin D supplements reduces the risk of death from cancer.

These are the results of the Vitamin D and Omega-3 Trial (VITAL), a study involving nearly 26,000 participants that took place over the course of 5.3 years. The researchers behind it investigated the effects of daily vitamin D and omega-3 fatty acid supplementation on the risk of cancer, heart disease and stroke in those with no history of the conditions.

“It does appear that these dietary supplements have benefits: for vitamin D, reducing cancer deaths; and for omega-3s, reducing heart attacks,” noted VITAL director JoAnn Manson, a professor at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and chief of the Preventive Medicine Division at Brigham and Women’s Hospital.

Your coronavirus test is Positive. Maybe it shouldn’t be.

Some of the nation’s leading public health experts are raising a new concern in the endless debate over coronavirus testing in the United States: The standard tests are diagnosing huge numbers of people who may be carrying relatively insignificant amounts of the virus.

Most of these people are not likely to be contagious, and identifying them may contribute to bottlenecks that prevent those who are contagious from being found in time. But researchers say the solution is not to test less, or to skip testing people without symptoms, as recently suggested by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Instead, new data underscore the need for more widespread use of rapid tests, even if they are less sensitive.

THE UNEXPLAINED DEATH OF ANDREW MOULDEN PH.D. MD

Moulden, an MD and PhD, with an unusually deep background in neurology, announced a direct and undeniable link between vaccines and neurological injury causing the symptoms known as autism and dozens of other dysfunctions like ADHD and Epstein-Barr.

Then, at 49, he was suddenly and inexplicably dead.

Heart attack? Suicide? The news media and police didn’t even bother to clarify the cause of death.

However, the usual suspects performed their usual “clean up crew” activities, creating web sites and “articles” slandering him and his work in every way possible.

Trudeau warns there ‘may not be’ Christmas in Canada because of COVID-19

Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau warned that unless “we’re really, really careful” Canadians might “not be” able to celebrate Christmas with family and friends, despite having allegedly broken coronavirus restrictions himself to visit his family this Easter.

“We are in an unprecedented global pandemic. That really sucks, it’s tough going through the second wave, it’s frustrating having shut down all of our lives through the spring, and now be forced to make more difficult choices and knowing there’s going to be a tough winter ahead as well,” said Trudeau last week at a news conference.

“And it’s frustrating knowing that unless we’re really, really careful, there may not be the kinds of family gatherings we want to have at Christmas, but we will get through this; vaccines are on the horizon.”

Radio Host Crushes Leading UK Epidemiologist's Credibility Over (Unknown) Cost Of 2nd Lockdown

In the most thorough demolition of an 'expert' epidemiologist who unabashedly advised the UK government of the desperate need for a second lockdown to "suppress" the virus, Independent SAGE member Professor Gabriel Scally was completely unable to respond when LBC's Maajid Nawaz cornered him on how severely a lockdown would cost the nation.

As LBC's Seán Hickey reports, Maajid asked whether the member of the Independent SAGE considers "the potential cost and deaths from having a lockdown and weigh them up."

Professor Scally insisted that "you can't have a response to this virus that doesn't take into account the economic factors, social factors and the psychological factors" and his department would definitely take these factors into consideration.

There's A Mysterious Seismic "Blip" From Deep Inside Earth That Has Pulsated Every 26 Seconds For 60 Years

Every 26 seconds for the last 60 years seismologists have detected a ubiquitous pulse emanating from deep inside the Earth. The debate over the cause of this mysterious “microseism” has gone on for decades and produced several cogent hypotheses, but scientists still don’t know decisively what’s behind the phenomenon.

First observed and recorded by geologist Jack Oliver in the early 1960s, then studied more extensively in the following decades, the pulse is known to be stronger during storms. But storms don’t turn off and on every 26 seconds, nor do volcanos, which have also been proposed as the source.

In 2005, a graduate student named Greg Bensen tracked the origin of the pulse to a more narrow location, a single source in the Gulf of Guinea, off the western coast of Africa; six years later, another team honed in even closer, pinpointing the origin in an area of the Gulf of Guinea called the Bight of Bonny.

And so it was time again.

Tightened restrictions, mandatory limits on public life, curfews, orders to stay-at-home, travel bans with invasive hoops, and all the other anti-corona policies that ostensibly aren’t lookdowns: they look like lockdowns, they quack like lockdowns, but in these euphemism-prone times we call them by any other names than lockdowns.

Maddeningly, the goalpost keeps shifting, updating life and language faster and better than George Orwell himself could have done.

Illinois'-Own COVID-19 Data Reveals State's COVID-19 Policy Is Upside-Down

A Wirepoints review of last month’s COVID-19 data reveals just how flawed Illinois’ response to the coronavirus continues to be. The recent spike in cases has the government shutting down large parts of the state again in a brute-force approach, when its efforts should, instead, be hyper-focused on the elderly and opening up the economy for everyone else.

Data from October shows that the elderly continue to dominate Illinois’ COVID deaths, even more than in recent months. Of the 393 increase in Illinois COVID deaths from September to October, nearly two-thirds came from those aged 80 and over. Illinois’ blanket lockdown policies have consistently failed to stem the deaths of the elderly since the pandemic began, especially those in nursing homes.

Pre-Vaccination Immunity Determines Effectiveness of Vaccines

Death due to influenza is over-reported. The Centers for Disease Control distributes a figure of 36,000 deaths a year from the flu. But data from the American Lung Association reveals flu-related deaths as low as a few hundred in a year in the U.S. (See chart below). The overstated deaths are believed to serve as promotion for vaccination campaigns.

The Cochrane Group, a global network of independent investigators, analyzes the validity of scientific evidence. In 2018 the Cochrane Group published an analysis of eight clinical trials involving over 5000 elderly participants in an effort to determine if vaccination prevents the flu. The analysis revealed 6% of unvaccinated seniors (they were given a placebo shot) were reported to have the flu compared to 2.4% of vaccinated individuals (58% relative reduced risk).

More than 61,000 children got Covid-19 last week, a record

More than 61,000 children in the U.S. were diagnosed with Covid-19 last week — more than in any other week during the pandemic, the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Children's Hospital Association reported Monday.

In all, 853,635 children have been diagnosed with the virus this year, representing 11.1 percent of all U.S. cases. The percentage of pediatric cases has risen steadily since mid-April, when children accounted for just 2 percent of Covid-19 cases in the country.

Bayer takes more than $10 BILLION write-down over Monsanto’s Roundup weed killer

German pharmaceutical giant Bayer said it’s facing a double hit from a higher legal bill for claims relating to weed killer Roundup and €9.25 billion ($10.8 billion) in impairments on Monsanto-related agriculture businesses.

According to the company, the write-downs were driven by weaker demand from farmers due to low biofuel prices and an increase of about $750 million in the costs of settlement terms with US plaintiffs over Roundup. As a result, the losses before interest and tax amounted to €9.4 billion ($10.9 billion) in the third quarter.

“The impact of the (coronavirus) pandemic is placing additional strain on our Crop Science Division. We are also facing negative currency effects,” Chief Financial Officer Wolfgang Nickl said as quoted by Reuters.

Protests of more than two people will be ILLEGAL under updated rules for UK national lockdown

Protests are no longer exempt under the UK-wide coronavirus lockdown that begins Thursday, and police plan to enforce that rule, unlike during the previous lockdown, according to UK media.

Demonstrations consisting of more than two people will be made expressly illegal under the second national lockdown, which is expected to take effect Thursday. Police allowed large protests, in particular for the Black Lives Matter movement, during the first lockdown even as individual British families were barred from getting together - a situation many found unfair.

VACCINES KILL: Study finds positive correlation between COVID-19 deaths, flu vaccination rates in elderly worldwide

An Oct. 1 study found a link between deaths from coronavirus infection and influenza vaccinations in older adults. The research published in PeerJ by Universidad Juarez del Estado de Durango professor Christian Wehenkel observed a “positive association between COVID-19 deaths and IVR (influenza vaccination rate) of people” above 65 years old.

Wehenkel analyzed data sets from 39 countries with more than 500,000 people to determine the link. The results of Wehenkel’s analysis did not appear to support earlier studies that showed getting the influenza jab could reduce the risk of dying from COVID-19. One such study by researcher Guenther Fink and his colleagues pointed out that “the innate immune response induced by recent vaccination could result in more rapid and efficient SARS-CoV-2 clearance,” preventing the virus from reaching deeper into the lower areas of the lung.

A schoolboy has died from coronavirus just 10 days after last attending school with fellow pupils.

Peyton Baumgarth died at the weekend after becoming hospitalised after receiving a positive Covid-19 test.

The 13-year-old's mum has urged everyone to wear a mask as a tribute to her son.

Peyton was last at Washington Middle School in Franklin County, Missouri on Thursday, October 22 and was hospitalised on Sunday, October 26.

He was the first person under 18 to die in the US state, on Saturday, October 31.

Study reveals mouth as primary source of COVID-19 infection, spread

(CHAPEL HILL, N.C.) 27-OCT-2020
A first-of-its-kind study shows the mouth is a robust site for infection and transmission of COVID-19, according to new research published Oct. 27 on the preprint server medRxiv.

A team of researchers led by the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research reveals coronavirus can take hold in the salivary glands where it replicates, and in some cases, leads to prolonged disease when infected saliva is swallowed into the gastrointestinal tract or aspirated to the lungs where it can lead to pneumonia.

While most COVID-19 research has focused on the nose and lungs, this is the first study to identify the mouth as a primary site for coronavirus infection and underscores the importance of wearing a face covering and physical distancing. The results have not been peer-reviewed.

Type 2 diabetes drug metformin recalled due to contamination with possible carcinogen

Two lots of a widely used type 2 diabetes medication, metformin, are being recalled due to possible contamination with a potentially cancer-causing compound. Metformin is designed to lower glucose levels.

Nostrum Laboratories Inc., based in Kansas City, Missouri, announced Monday that it is voluntarily recalling its metformin HCl extended release tablets, USP 750 mg, according to a recall posted by the US Drug & Food Administration.
Testing revealed levels of nitrosamine, or NDMA, above acceptable limits in the recalled tablets.

The chemical NDMA is considered a possible carcinogen by the US Environmental Protection Agency. It's an organic chemical used to make liquid rocket fuel and it can be a byproduct of manufacturing, including pharmaceutical manufacturing. It's also found in water and foods, including meats, dairy and vegetables.

SpaceX wants to impose its 'own legal regime' on Mars for human settlements. A space law expert says that's dubious, but Earth should take it seriously anyway.

Elon Musk wants to build a settlement on Mars using Starship, a new fully reusable rocket system that SpaceX is developing to carry 100 people per flight. SpaceX's general counsel recently said he's drafting "a constitution for Mars" and that the company may impose its "own legal regime" on the red planet. SpaceX apparently wants Mars to be "a free planet" where "no Earth-based government has authority or sovereignty," according to terms of service for Starlink, SpaceX's satellite-based internet service. However, Frans von der Dunk, a professor of space law, says SpaceX won't get any Martian state recognized without skillful international diplomacy and major changes to space law. Though it's uncertain SpaceX will ever establish a Mars settlement, von der Dunk said Earth should start discussing how to handle such a future anyway.

FDA wants a Covid-19 vaccine that's 50 percent effective. What does that mean?

Over the summer, the Food and Drug Administration announced that in order for an experimental Covid-19 vaccine to get the green light, it would need to be safe and “prevent disease or decrease its severity in at least 50 percent of people who are vaccinated.”

In fact, no vaccine is 100 percent effective, but some work better than others. One of the most successful is the measles vaccine — two doses are 97 percent effective in preventing the disease, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

America Steps Forward To Expand Nuclear Power

Oct 21, 2020,09:39am EDT
After hemming and hawing for decades, the United States USM -0.4% is taking some big steps in developing advanced nuclear reactor technologies.

Last week, the United States Department of Energy (DOE) selected two teams - one led by TerraPower in partnership with GE Hitachi, and one led by X-energy - to receive $80 million each in initial funding under the Advanced Reactor Demonstration Program (ARDP).

In this program, DOE provides initial funding to develop, test, license and build advanced nuclear reactors within five to seven years of the award. DOE plans to invest about $3.2 billion over seven years in these projects that will be matched by the industry.

These plants will generate carbon-free electricity to help meet the nation’s carbon reduction goals, which is in keeping with most climate experts, like Jim Hanson, who warn we cannot achieve any of our climate goals without significant nuclear power.

Study Finds ‘Robust’ Cellular Immunity Six Months After Covid-19 Infection

Nov 3, 2020,09:51am EST
A new study has found evidence of a “robust cellular memory” against Covid-19 that lasts for at least six months after infection, reinvigorating the question of whether natural infection with the virus could grant lasting immunity after a study last week showed a rapid decline in protective antibodies in the months after infection.

The research, which has not been peer reviewed and was carried out on 100 individuals who had tested positive for Covid-19 with no or mild symptoms, found evidence of T-cell immunity six months after infection, a type of blood cell that attacks cells infected with the virus.

The study, which was carried out as part of the U.K. Coronavirus Immunology Consortium, found that those who had symptoms elicited a greater immune response after six months, raising the prospect of symptomatic individuals being better protected against reinfection in the future.

A Judge Just Dethroned California COVID Dictator Gavin Newsom

Gavin Newsom may want to mask up for the news. The California governor was just dethroned by a Superior Court judge who reminded him on Monday that he’s not a king, but a servant of the people – people who elected a legislature to make laws.

Sutter County Superior Court Judge Sarah Heckman barred Newsom from making new coronavirus laws that use the “California Emergency Services Act [which] amends, alters, or changes existing statutory law or makes new statutory law or legislative policy.”

The decision Monday afternoon was a pointed reminder to Newsom that there’s such a thing as a legislature, whose job, after all, is to make laws. It forbade him from exercising, as my colleague over at RedState Jennifer Van Laar characterized, “one-man rule.”

Scientists develop white paint that keeps surfaces up to 18 degrees cooler

Researchers from the U.S. and China have developed a white paint that could keep surfaces up to 18 degrees cooler than the surrounding temperatures.

In a study published in the journal Cell Reports Physical Science, the researchers said that the cooling paint absorbs almost no amount of solar energy and is better than similar products at reflecting sunlight. The paint, said the researchers, could be used to keep buildings cool and decrease the need for air conditioning.

Michigan Governor: Up To Six Months In Prison If Businesses Don’t Surveil Customers For Contact Tracing

The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) is requiring restaurants, barbershops, tattoo parlors, recreational facilities, and entertainment establishments to record the names, contact information, and visit times of all customers to “aid with contact tracing.” Any establishment that does not comply is threatened with a maximum $200 fine, a misdemeanor charge punishable with up to six months in prison, and a $1,000 civil fine for violating the state’s emergency orders.

The order, announced Friday, comes as Michigan’s Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and her administration began backtracking on the state’s latest reopening plan and tightening COVID-19 restrictions, citing rising hospitalizations and deaths. Other states including New York have implemented similar contact tracing rules, requiring restaurants to record diners’ information in the case of an outbreak.

If you want to avoid dying of Covid-19, one of the most important things you can do, if you are overweight, is to shed the pounds

A recent study by an international team of researchers using data from 399,000 patients found that people with obesity who contracted coronavirus were 113 percent more likely than people of healthy weight to end up in hospital, 74 percent more likely to be admitted to intensive care, and 48 percent more likely to die.

German courts are dealing with a major rise in legal complaints against government lockdown measures — and, unlike at the start of the pandemic, they are now getting more involved.

Berlin-based Lawyer Niko Härting has been taking on some of these legal challenges — and his case-load has piled up in the last week. He says hundreds of restaurants, hotels, gyms, yoga schools, tattoo studios, and other businesses have called his office asking for advice.

"We tell everyone that it'll be a hard fight," he told DW. "Because up till now in the pandemic the courts have been very cautious about lifting the measures."

Michigan Governor Whitmer Goes Full Orwell, Demands Full Names, Phone Numbers For All Restaurant Customers

Effective this week, diners in Michigan are now going to be required to produce their full name and contact information simply for wanting to eat out at a restaurant or bar.

Ironically, it's likely more information than citizens are required to produce in order to vote.

Democratic Governor Gretchen Whitmer has moved her state one step closer to a true Orwellian paradise, asking her citizens to surrender their privacy every time they want a cheeseburger and a coke at their local diner. Whitmer has already been struck down once by the Supreme Court over trying to unilaterally extend the state's emergency declarations, The Western Journal noted.

A new release from the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services said: “Like many other businesses in Michigan, bars and restaurants will also be required to take names and contact information to support effective contact tracing if necessary.”

Judge rules to limit California governor powers amid pandemic

A judge ruled on Monday to limit California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s (D) executive powers during a pandemic.

Sutter County Superior Court Judge Sarah Heckman issued a preliminary order for Newsom to stop making executive orders that could contradict state laws, after determining one of his orders was “an unconstitutional exercise of legislative power.”

Her order prevents Newsom “from exercising any power under the California Emergency Services Act which amends, alters, or changes existing statutory law or makes new statutory law or legislative policy.”

The judge determined that the California Emergency Services Act itself was constitutional but noted it “does not permit the Governor to amend statutes or make new statutes.”

BREAKING: Court Declares Gov. Newsom’s Abuse of Power Unconstitutional

California Assemblymen Kevin Kiley and James Gallagher sued to stop California Governor Gavin Newsom’s “one man rule,” as California Globe has reported over several months. They were in Sutter County Superior Court October 21st, arguing that Gov. Gavin Newsom has exceeded his emergency powers in issuing Executive Orders having nothing to do with the coronavirus pandemic crisis.

Monday, State Superior Court Judge Sarah Heckman tentatively ruled in favor of Gallagher (R-Yuba City) and Kiley (R-Rocklin) in their abuse of power lawsuit against Governor Newsom.

In the tentative ruling, Judge Heckman declared the Governor’s recent Executive Order N-67-20 unconstitutional. More importantly, Judge Heckman’s tentative ruling places a permanent injunction against the Governor which prevents him from unilaterally making or changing state law moving forward.

UK Brings In Army To Help With First 'China-Style' Mass COVID-19 Testing In Liverpool

Following in the footsteps of China and tiny Slovakia, the UK is embarking on its first "moonshot" mass-testing campaign in the city of Liverpool, known to most people outside the UK as the hometown of the Beatles. According to the Guardian, up to half a million people in the city are set to be tested this week, and if the system proves successful, it will be used again.

With the self-isolation period for those who test positive set to be reduced, up to half a million people are due to be tested in Liverpool in the government's first attempt at mass testing and tracing, with the goal of tracing the infection of every individual who tests positive during the drive.

What goes up must come down — including, sadly enough, the International Space Station.

For precisely 20 years now, the massive orbiting laboratory has constantly been home to humans, the lucky handful of Earthlings who at any given time venture into the topsy-turvy world of microgravity. But like the rest of us, the International Space Station is aging. And it can't stay in orbit on its own indefinitely — it needs a regular boost or fuel injection from visiting spacecraft. If those boosts stop or something else goes wrong, sooner or later, the lab will fall.

Anthony Fauci: 40 Years of Lies From AZT to Remdesivir

Last week, US president Donald Trump committed a kind of blasphemy by attacking Anthony Fauci, his pandemic consultant and practically the spokesperson for the White House regarding COVID-19, saying that:

People are tired of hearing Fauci and all these idiots. He’s been here for 500 years. ?Fauci is a disaster. If I listened to him, we’d have 500,000 deaths.“

A remarkable statement of historical dimension, since Trump is the first American head of state to cast doubt on Fauci, who has acted as the virus tsar for no less than six presidencies: Reagan, Bush, Clinton, Bush Jr., Obama and Trump.
