  • My sympathy goes out to you, I can see that you have really suffered with so many of your family having adverse vaccine reactions. For me - well my darling wife died after a 'flu jab' which went seriously wrong. Two years later I am still coming to terms with it. If only, if only she had taken my advice (to avoid vaccination) I am sure she would be still alive.

    Flu kills people, and Flue vaccinations have reduced those deaths a lot.


    The chances of dying from a Flu vaccination are definitely lower than from Flu. In that case, I'm very sorry that it happened, but all we can do it the thing that on average will be best, and the rest is for God.

  • Coronavirus ‘ghosts’ linger in the gut

    The evidence is growing that pieces of SARS-CoV-2 can linger in the gut for months after initial infection. The findings add weight to the hypothesis that persistent bits of virus — coronavirus “ghosts”, in the words of oncologist and geneticist Ami Bhatt — could contribute to long COVID. Researchers caution that more research is needed and the link is not conclusive.

    "Single-pass Free Electron Laser Operating at 0.16 THz with an Energy Efficiency of ~10% Promises Compact and High-power Sources in the Terahertz Spectral Region"


    QUOTE

    In contrast to the flourishing development of optical light–matter studies, which mainly focus on exciting and manipulating atoms and valence electrons, the progress in


    controlling collective motions and dynamics of phonons and magnons in materials has been hindered by the scarcity of suitable radiation sources1 operating in the terahertz spectrum (0.1 to 10 THz).


    In addition, the growing demand for nonlinear and non-resonant excitation and control of materials requires terahertz sources with improved efficiency and higher output powers2. end quotes

    When a deep understanding of immunology, virology, vaccinology, evolutionary biology, and molecular biology is applied to analysis of whether children should receive current vaccines against COVID-19 (C-19), it is concluded that recommendation of such vaccination is scientifically unsound and that such vaccination is harmful to individual children, children as a group, and Humanity as a whole, for the following reasons:


    children have an abundant population of innate B cells that are capable of rapidly producing innate / natural antibodies (Abs), mostly of IgM isotype, and that are highly adaptable to a broad and diversified spectrum of antigens or pathogenic agents. Innate Abs can facilitate cell-mediated killing of host cells infected with Coronaviruses (CoVs), including all SC-2 variants, independently of previous immune priming by antigen / pathogen encounter

    innate immunity can be trained such as to acquire memory and, therefore, improve the host’s innate immune defense upon future exposure to more infectious variants that may emerge during an epidemic or pandemic

    the C-19 vaccines undermine the innate immune system by, for example, hindering binding of innate, low affinity antibodies and by interfering with the normal training of a child’s innate immune system.

    SERIOUSLY expect that a series of new highly virulent and highly infectious SARS-CoV-2 (SC-2) variants will now rapidly and independently emerge in highly vaccinated countries all over the world and that they will soon spread at high pace. I expect the current pattern of repetitive infections and relatively mild disease in vaccinees to soon aggravate and be replaced by severe disease and death. Unfortunately, there is no way vaccinees can rely on assistance from their innate immune system to protect against coronaviruses as their relevant innate IgM antibodies are increasingly being outcompeted by infection-enhancing vaccinal Abs, which are continuously recalled due to the circulation of highly infectious Omicron variants. In contrast, Omicron’s high infectiousness would enable the non-vaccinated to train their innate immune defense against SC-2 while the infectious and pathogenic capacity of the new SC-2 variants would be debilitated in the non-vaccinated for lack of infection-enhancing Abs in their blood.

    Pfizer’s Covid Vaccine Protection Against Omicron Fades Just Weeks After Second And Third Doses, Study Finds


    Pfizer’s Covid Vaccine Protection Against Omicron Fades Just Weeks After Second And Third Doses, Study Finds
    Levels of protective antibodies against omicron are “transient” after the second and third doses of Pfizer’s Covid-19 vaccine, researchers found.

    Immunity against the omicron coronavirus variant fades rapidly after a second and third dose of Pfizer and BioNTech’s Covid-19 vaccine, according to peer reviewed research published in JAMA Network Open on Friday, a finding that could support rolling out additional booster shots to vulnerable people as the variant drives an uptick in new cases across the country.

    Introduction

    The SARS-CoV-2 Omicron variant of concern1 (VOC) is highly resistant to vaccine-induced antibody neutralization2 and associated with a decline in vaccine efficacy within the first 3 months following the primary 2-dose regimen of the SARS-CoV-2 BNT162b2 (Pfizer/BioNTech) mRNA vaccine3,4 and from 10 weeks after a third BNT162b2 dose.4 To associate Omicron-specific neutralizing antibody levels with reported vaccine efficacies, we performed a temporal analysis of virus neutralization responses against an ancestral strain (D614G), the Delta VOC, and the Omicron VOC (BA.1) following 2 or 3 doses of the BNT162b2 vaccine.

    If your father in law was under going treatment, he should not have taken the jab. Flu shots have shown some degree to fighting cancer as it inhibits tumor growth. But not in patients actively receiving treatment.

  • Global COVID Summit, Declaration IV

    A Joint Statement, representing 17,000 Physicians and Medical Scientists

    To Restore Scientific Integrity


    17,000 Physicians and Medical Scientists Declare that the State of Medical Emergency must be lifted, Scientific integrity restored, and crimes against humanity addressed.


    We, the physicians and medical scientists of the world, united through our loyalty to the Hippocratic Oath, recognize that the disastrous COVID-19 public health policies imposed on doctors and our patients are the culmination of a corrupt medical alliance of pharmaceutical, insurance, and healthcare institutions, along with the financial trusts which control them. They have infiltrated our medical system at every level, and are protected and supported by a parallel alliance of big tech, media, academics and government agencies who profited from this orchestrated catastrophe.


    This corrupt alliance has compromised the integrity of our most prestigious medical societies to which we belong, generating an illusion of scientific consensus by substituting truth with propaganda. This alliance continues to advance unscientific claims by censoring data, and intimidating and firing doctors and scientists for simply publishing actual clinical results or treating their patients with proven, life-saving medicine. These catastrophic decisions came at the expense of the innocent, who are forced to suffer health damage and death caused by intentionally withholding critical and time-sensitive treatments, or as a result of coerced genetic therapy injections, which are neither safe nor effective.


    The medical community has denied patients the fundamental human right to provide true informed consent for the experimental COVID-19 injections. Our patients are also blocked from obtaining the information necessary to understand risks and benefits of vaccines, and their alternatives, due to widespread censorship and propaganda spread by governments, public health officials and media. Patients continue to be subjected to forced lock-downs which harm their health, careers and children’s education, and damage social and family bonds critical to civil society. This is not a coincidence. In the book entitled “COVID-19: The Great Reset”, leadership of this alliance has clearly stated their intention is to leverage COVID-19 as an “opportunity” to reset our entire global society, culture, political structures, and economy.


    Our 17,000 Global COVID Summit physicians and medical scientists represent a much larger, enlightened global medical community who refuse to be compromised, and are united and willing to risk the wrath of the corrupt medical alliance to defend the health of their patients.


    The mission of the Global COVID Summit is to end this orchestrated crisis, which has been illegitimately imposed on the world, and to formally declare that the actions of this corrupt alliance constitute nothing less than crimes against humanity.


    We must restore the people’s trust in medicine, which begins with free and open dialogue between physicians and medical scientists. We must restore medical rights and patient autonomy. This includes the foundational principle of the sacred doctor-patient relationship. The social need for this is decades overdue, and therefore, we the physicians of the world are compelled to take action.


    After two years of scientific research, millions of patients treated, hundreds of clinical trials performed and scientific data shared, we have demonstrated and documented our success in understanding and combating COVID-19. In considering the risks versus benefits of major policy decisions, our Global COVID Summit of 17,000 physicians and medical scientists from all over the world have reached consensus on the following foundational principles:


    We declare and the data confirm that the COVID-19 experimental genetic therapy injections must end.


    We declare doctors should not be blocked from providing life-saving medical treatment.


    We declare the state of national emergency, which facilitates corruption and extends the pandemic, should be immediately terminated.


    We declare medical privacy should never again be violated, and all travel and social restrictions must cease.


    We declare masks are not and have never been effective protection against an airborne respiratory virus in the community setting.


    We declare funding and research must be established for vaccination damage, death and suffering.


    We declare no opportunity should be denied, including education, career, military service or medical treatment, over unwillingness to take an injection.


    We declare that first amendment violations and medical censorship by government, technology and media companies should cease, and the Bill of Rights be upheld.


    We declare that Pfizer, Moderna, BioNTech, Janssen, Astra Zeneca, and their enablers, withheld and willfully omitted safety and effectiveness information from patients and physicians, and should be immediately indicted for fraud.


    We declare government and medical agencies must be held accountable.

  • The Economist...(possibly paywalled for some) :- Omicron in N.Korea


    North Korea admits it has an outbreak of covid-19
    An unvaccinated population and minimal health infrastructure spell disaster
    www.economist.com


    Even for a country accustomed to bad news, the outbreak is disastrous. North Korea’s response to the pandemic was to close itself off from the world, reduce imports to a trickle and impose domestic travel restrictions. While other countries rushed to vaccinate their people, North Korea gambled that it could ride out the storm. It repeatedly declined offers of vaccines from China, Russia and covax, a un-backed global effort to supply shots to poor countries. The leadership was reluctant to allow health workers into the country, for fear they might spread the virus or gather information about the dire conditions inside the closed dictatorship. It may have been spooked by rumours of doubts about the safety of the vaccine made by AstraZeneca, offered through covax.


    Whatever the reasons for the vaccine hesitancy, the approach always looked dubious. There was no guarantee that the virus would evolve to be less dangerous over time, rather than become more infectious and harder to manage, as turned out to be the case. China’s pursuit of a zero-covid strategy was designed to buy time while it vaccinated its population. Though the North Korean leadership blamed those tasked with keeping the virus out for their “carelessness, laxity, irresponsibility and incompetence”, the real folly was the leadership’s failure to set up a vaccination programme in the time it had bought.


    North Koreans will now suffer the consequences. Omicron is not especially dangerous in vaccinated populations, but still deadly for the immunologically naive. Hong Kong, which had a poor vaccination rate among the elderly when the variant hit, is a case in point. In late January its death toll stood at 205. Within two months it had climbed to nearly 8,000 after an Omicron outbreak spread like wildfire.


    North Korea is likely to do even worse. The impoverished dictatorship lacks the testing and tracing infrastructure that other countries have built over the past two years. Its health-care sector suffered from serious underinvestment even before the pandemic. It does not have enough equipment and medical staff. Hospitals do not have regular power, clean water or proper sanitation. Two years of closed borders have depleted supplies of medicine, much of which is imported. It is unclear how much oxygen or how many ventilators the country has available. And pre-existing conditions make North Koreans especially susceptible to covid-19. Tuberculosis, which worsens the effects of the virus, is rampant. So is malnutrition.


    North Korea may turn to China, but its patron is already busy struggling to salvage its own failing zero-covid policy. If North Korea can be convinced to accept help from South Korea, the new president, Yoon Suk-yeol, could make good on his promise that he would provide humanitarian aid “regardless of the circumstance”. North Korea has in the past organised successful mass-vaccination campaigns, notably against measles in 2007, and it has the cold-chain distribution infrastructure necessary to keep vaccines from spoiling. If enough doses were offered and allowed to be administered, many lives could be saved.


    The irony is that North Korea might have been better off had it let covid spread early in the pandemic when the virus was less infectious (while also jabbing people). Had it done so, the curve of the epidemic would have been flatter and less hard to cope with today. The best-case scenario would be if there have been far more cases in the country than the government has previously admitted, meaning that there is some immunity in the population. For once, North Koreans should hope that their leaders have been lying to them.

  • 17,000 Physicians and Medical Scientists Declare that the State of Medical Emergency must be lifted, Scientific integrity restored, and crimes against humanity addressed.

    Speaking of which, on Monday Toronto lifted it's state of emergency, after a divinely numbered 777 days. Yay.

    So many levels of emergency to choose from - municipal, provincial and federal. We love states of emergency, they're hard to give up, they keep us so safe. Not to worry, though. The vaccination push will continue. (Nevermind that close to 100 percent of people already have exposure to Sars Covid-2 antigen.)


    Excerpts from https://www.cp24.com/news/covi…-after-777-days-1.5894829


    Mayor John Tory has formally terminated a municipal state of emergency which had been in effect for a total of 777 days, calling it “just one more sign that the city is returning to a more normal state of existence.”


    “We are on the right track but I think we have to remind ourselves every single day that this is not over. So we continue to do the work,” he said. “But I think the sort of stress level and the acute nature of the pandemic has receded a bit and it allows us to have days like today where we can remove the state of emergency while still continuing with just as much effort on things like vaccination.”


    As part of that transition [from emergency], Toronto’s Board of Health will meet on May 16 to vote on a motion which would make its hyper-local vaccination campaign a permanent program, contingent on additional funding being provided by the province.


    The declaration signalled our intent to fight COVID-19 with everything we had and now two years, one month and 17 days later and more than seven [million] doses of vaccine later there is no doubt that our collective efforts have been successful in getting us to a better place,” Tory said.


    “This isn’t a signal that we can let down our guard when it comes to COVID-19,” [Dr. DeVilla] said of the decision to terminate the municipal emergency. “Nor is it time to let go of efforts to get Torontonians their next dose of vaccine.”

    Barrett and the MIT Electric Aircraft Initiative published a paper about the technology in the journal Nature in 2018. Rather than rotors or propellers, they developed a small aircraft with a series of electrodes beneath the wings creating a high-voltage electric field that ionizes and then accelerates nitrogen molecules in the atmosphere to propel the plane forward.

  • Increased emergency cardiovascular events among under-40 population in Israel during vaccine rollout and third COVID-19 wave



    05 May 2022 Editor’s Note: Readers are alerted that the conclusions of this article are subject to criticisms that are being considered by the Editors. A further editorial response will follow once all parties have been given an opportunity to respond in full.


    Abstract

    Cardiovascular adverse conditions are caused by coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) infections and reported as side-effects of the COVID-19 vaccines. Enriching current vaccine safety surveillance systems with additional data sources may improve the understanding of COVID-19 vaccine safety. Using a unique dataset from Israel National Emergency Medical Services (EMS) from 2019 to 2021, the study aims to evaluate the association between the volume of cardiac arrest and acute coronary syndrome EMS calls in the 16–39-year-old population with potential factors including COVID-19 infection and vaccination rates. An increase of over 25% was detected in both call types during January–May 2021, compared with the years 2019–2020. Using Negative Binomial regression models, the weekly emergency call counts were significantly associated with the rates of 1st and 2nd vaccine doses administered to this age group but were not with COVID-19 infection rates. While not establishing causal relationships, the findings raise concerns regarding vaccine-induced undetected severe cardiovascular side-effects and underscore the already established causal relationship between vaccines and myocarditis, a frequent cause of unexpected cardiac arrest in young individuals. Surveillance of potential vaccine side-effects and COVID-19 outcomes should incorporate EMS and other health data to identify public health trends (e.g., increased in EMS calls), and promptly investigate potential underlying causes.
