  1. I know they aren't. The last 40 years of 'capitalism' has brainwashed many into believing in profits above all, even when everything falls apart.
  2. A good summary between now and 100 years ago. https://www.govexec.com/management/2021/02/1918-pandemic-provides-warning-about-covid-19s-future/172078/ 1918 Pandemic Provides Warning about COVID-19’s Future Even if we start to see a decrease in COVID cases, a study of the 1918 influenza pandemic suggests a spike could occur in late 2021 or early 2022. FEBRUARY 17, 2021 The 1918 influenza pandemic provides a cautionary tale for what the future may hold for COVID-19, says Siddharth Chandra. After a decade studying a flu virus that killed approximately 15,000 Michigan residents, Chandra, a professor in the James Madison College at Michigan State University, saw his research come to life as he watched the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic. “It was so surreal,” says Chandra, who has a courtesy appointment in epidemiology and biostatistics. “All of a sudden, I was living my research.” Using influenza infection and mortality data on Michigan from 1918-1920, Chandra identified four distinct waves. The first large peak was in March 1918. “After a second spike in cases in October 1918, the governor instituted a statewide ban on public gatherings,” Chandra says. “Much like the restrictions that were put in place during the COVID-19 pandemic.” After three weeks, the number of cases decreased and the ban was lifted, which led to another peak in December 1918. “The ban didn’t stop the spread of the flu. It just delayed the spike in cases,” he says. This graph shows the four distinct waves. Wave #1 March 1918 (Spring 1918 Wave), #2 October 1918 (Fall 1918 Wave), #3 December 1918 (Winter 1918 Wave), and #4 February 2020 (Winter 1920 Wave). (Credit: MSU) Chandra mapped the data showing the peaks and spikes in cases from October 1918 and December 1918 and tracked flu virus case growth by county over time. In October, counties in the southern part of the state and near the Mackinac Straits had the highest numbers but by December, the highest numbers of cases were in the heart of the state. The most surprising piece of data came 18 months later in February 1920, when a statewide explosion of cases created a massive spike even larger than the one in October 1918. For Chandra, it is an educated guess as to the reasons for this delayed increase. “Assuming it’s the same influenza virus, World War I ended in 1918 and the men were coming home to their families,” he says. “We had a mobile agent that brought the virus home to infect family members, which would explain the increase in cases among children and the elderly.” Unfortunately, there is not a way to confirm this, Chandra says. “We would need samples from patients in 1920 from across the state. Then, we would need to compare those with samples from patients in 1918 from across the state, and that’s not likely to happen.” The weather may have also been a factor since cool temperatures with low humidity likely provided optimal conditions for the virus to live and spread. Another factor that played a role was the absence of a vaccine. “In 1918, there was no hope for a vaccine. In 2021, we have a vaccine available,” he says. One of the key insights from the 1918 pandemic that can inform the public health response to the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic is the number of people susceptible to the virus, Chandra says. Which means that it is possible that a spike like the February 1920 one will occur in late 2021 or early 2022. “So many people will remain susceptible until they get vaccinated,” Chandra says. “Bad things can still happen a year or two from now even if we see a decrease in the number of cases now. We still have over 200 million people walking around who are susceptible to the virus, including myself.” The study appears in the American Journal of Public Health.

  3. If you need more proof inflation is manufactured... https://bringmethenews.com/minnesota-business/fresh-off-3-1b-profits-report-says-general-mills-set-to-increase-grocery-prices General Mills is warning wholesale buyers about an impending price increase that will almost certainly be passed on to shoppers. That's according to a recent CNN Business report, which saw copies of letters the Minnesota-based company sent to retailers. The letter explained that come mid-January 2022, prices on many of its products would go up by as much as 20%. That includes products across many of its well-known brands, including Betty Crocker, Annie's, Progresso, Pillsbury, Yoplait and more. How is General Mills doing? In its 2021 fiscal year (which runs June-May), the company reported net sales of $18.1 billion, a 3% increase from the year prior, as well as an operating profit of $3.1 billion (up 6% from the previous year). CEO Jeffrey Harmening, meanwhile, had a base salary of $1.25 million, with another $5.25 million in stock awards, with total compensation for the year at $15.57 million. The 2021 compensation for Group President Jonathan Nudi totaled just under $5.65 million, while CFO Kofi Bruce received just under $3.45 million.
  4. The incident clearly shows the police officer committing murder. A man in a wheelchair, with knife or not, isn't that great a threat to anyone who can run away. So you know gun advocates will spin it to the officer having to 'stop' an armed individual. Well, he could have thrown a 2x4 in front of the wheelchair as a chock instead of shooting him, couldn't he? Just like they wouldn't show the video of Rittenhouse pointing his rifle at protestors before his 'incident'? Is that why they fought to have a mistrial because of the aggressive nature of the defendant? One needs to just look at the evidence, and make up your own mind, ignore the yammering. https://www.cnbc.com/2021/11/17/rittenhouse-lawyers-ask-judge-to-declare-mistrial-over-video.html At issue was a piece of drone video that prosecutors showed to the jury in closing arguments in a bid to undermine Rittenhouse’s self-defense claim and portray him as the instigator of the bloodshed in Kenosha in the summer of 2020. Prosecutors said the footage showed him pointing his rifle at protesters before the shooting erupted. https://www.wisn.com/article/kyle-rittenhouse-trial-drone-video-quality-not-likely-grounds-for-mistrial-expert-says/38292535#
  5. I guess you don't care about the inflation that's been created as well.
  6. A less dramatic account... http://avherald.com/h?article=4f10cac3&opt=0
  7. $80,000,000 distributed to employees, leaving $5,900,000,000 in profit is only a ratio of 1.35%. Compare that to the executive bonuses. Yes, the article says senior executives won't get that amount, however, what are they getting?
  8. After the school shooting the other day, where the student and parents have both clammed up, then there's this... https://l.facebook.com/l.php?u=https%3A%2F%2Ffb.watch%2F9FEEzAZRuW%2F%3Ffbclid%3DIwAR1gDN370Ebm85ZDO2zQuH_PsUEm20I7hOVYE1tXHkm3XtB3G4bVYSboAmg&h=AT0EOaIw9uCSdSB1_rWStwC8JkopJBaTpSV0Ts4GVsVEITVSHBac8EGXLg1QlU3S-X3MHusZGLgSyWbFo3te0WiEhAOYZd0gESpuT5coKy6LpZjX6P2FCc38Yba8QgnVKgheQ3SoO8lu5f6nIQI
  9. They're doing something right... https://www.bnnbloomberg.ca/canada-s-economy-cranks-out-154k-jobs-quadruple-expectations-1.1690642 Canada’s economy cranks out 154k jobs, quadruple expectations Canada’s labor market blew past expectations in November as the end of income support programs helped fuel new hiring. Employment rose 153,700 last month, Statistics Canada reported Friday in Ottawa. That’s more than quadruple the 37,500 gain economists were predicting, according to the median estimate in a Bloomberg survey. The numbers show how close the nation’s economy is to full employment at a time when businesses are raising worries about labor shortages and policy makers are considering ways to cool the recovery down. The unemployment rate fell to 6 per cent -- very near pre-pandemic levels -- from 6.7 per cent in October. Employment is now 186,000 jobs beyond where it was in February 2020. Hours worked rose 0.7 per cent, fully recouping COVID losses for the first time. November’s gains reflect large numbers of people exiting unemployment ranks after Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s government terminated its key support program for individuals in October. Unemployment levels fell by 122,000 last month, versus 56,200 in October. Much of that decline were people who were out of a job for 52 weeks or more. “We warned the risks were toward a much stronger report as pandemic support programs ended in late October -- and that’s exactly what we got,” Benjamin Reitzes, Canadian rates and macro strategist at Bank of Montreal, said by email. November’s report marks the sixth straight month of job gains, and will cement expectations that interest rates are poised to increase. Markets are pricing in five Bank of Canada interest rate hikes next year. The gains were nearly evenly split between part-time and full time, with growth led by the private sector. The services sector accounted for a majority of new positions, led by health care, retail trade and professional services. Manufacturing was responsible for all the job gains in the goods-producing sector. “Labor markets are tightening sharply, and that positions the Bank of Canada to hike earlier than we had expected,” Royce Mendes, an economist at Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce, said by email.
  10. Yes that is also fair. However, Apple, oil companies, etc, charging more for something that is already manufactured and in the system is what is causing our spike in inflation. So while the proper tax being paid is going to help governments, it does nothing for the consumer and only leads to increased reliance on government handouts because the people can't keep up.
  11. While I wholeheartedly agree with your sentiments about taxes, that wasn't the point of the pic I posted. It's about margins. Companies are entitled to make profits, and if you look at most of the one's now making obscene profits, they were profitable before, during and now in the pandemic. So if they were making comfortable profits before, why the increase in margins? That is why we are having high inflation. Not shortages or labour problems.
  12. 'Murica! The parents knew... https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/boy-17-becomes-fourth-victim-michigan-high-school-shooting-rcna7267 Bouchard said that the suspect's parents have asked for a lawyer and that, under Michigan law, authorities cannot speak with a juvenile without parental permission. "They have refused that permission," he said. "So we can’t get the motive from the suspect that we have in custody, but we think we’ve got a path to get a lot of supportive information as to how and why this occurred." Because they have not yet been able to question the suspect, investigators are still unclear about what motive he may have had, Bouchard added. "There is nothing that he could have faced that would warrant senseless, absolutely brutal violence on other kids," he said. Crumbley's parents had been asked to speak with the school Monday and Tuesday, before the shooting, to discuss "concerning" classroom behavior, Bouchard said.

  13. https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2021/dec/01/trump-tested-positive-covid-before-biden-debate-chief-staff-mark-meadows-book Trump tested positive for Covid few days before Biden debate, chief of staff says in new book Donald Trump tested positive for Covid-19 three days before his first debate against Joe Biden, the former president’s fourth and last chief of staff has revealed in a new book. Trump White House chief of staff Mark Meadows to testify before Capitol attack committee Read more Mark Meadows also writes that though he knew each candidate was required “to test negative for the virus within seventy two hours of the start time … Nothing was going to stop [Trump] from going out there.” Trump, Meadows says in the book, returned a negative result from a different test shortly after the positive. Nonetheless, the stunning revelation of an unreported positive test follows a year of speculation about whether Trump, then 74 years old, had the potentially deadly virus when he faced Biden, 77, in Cleveland on 29 September – and what danger that might have presented. Trump announced he had Covid on 2 October. The White House said he announced that result within an hour of receiving it. He went to hospital later that day. Meadows says Trump’s positive result on 26 September was a shock to a White House which had just staged a triumphant Rose Garden ceremony for the supreme court nominee Amy Coney Barrett – an occasion now widely considered to have been a Covid super-spreader event. Despite the president looking “a little tired” and suspecting a “slight cold”, Meadows says he was “content” that Trump travelled that evening to a rally in Middletown, Pennsylvania. But as Marine One lifted off, Meadows writes, the White House doctor called. “Stop the president from leaving,” Meadows says Sean Conley told him. “He just tested positive for Covid.” It wasn’t possible to stop Trump but when he called from Air Force One, his chief of staff gave him the news. “Mr President,” Meadows said, “I’ve got some bad news. You’ve tested positive for Covid-19.” Trump’s reply, the devout Christian writes, “rhyme[d] with ‘Oh spit, you’ve gotta be trucking lidding me’”. Meadows writes of his surprise that such a “massive germaphobe” could have contracted Covid, given precautions including “buckets of hand sanitiser” and “hardly [seeing] anyone who ha[d]n’t been rigorously tested”. Meadows says the positive test had been done with an old model kit. He told Trump the test would be repeated with “the Binax system, and that we were hoping the first test was a false positive”. After “a brief but tense wait”, Meadows called back with news of the negative test. He could “almost hear the collective ‘Thank God’ that echoed through the cabin”, he writes. Meadows says Trump took that call as “full permission to press on as if nothing had happened”. His chief of staff, however, “instructed everyone in his immediate circle to treat him as if he was positive” throughout the Pennsylvania trip. “I didn’t want to take any unnecessary risks,” Meadows writes, “but I also didn’t want to alarm the public if there was nothing to worry about – which according to the new, much more accurate test, there was not.” Meadows writes that audience members at the rally “would never have known that anything was amiss”. The public, however, was not told of the president’s tests. On Sunday 27 September, the first day between the tests and the debate, Meadows says Trump did little – except playing golf in Virginia and staging an event for military families at which he “spoke about the value of sacrifice”. Trump later said he might have been infected at that event, thanks to people “within an inch of my face sometimes, they want to hug me and they want to kiss me. And they do. And frankly, I’m not telling them to back up.” In his book, Meadows does not mention that Trump also held a press conference indoors, in the White House briefing room, the same day. On Monday 28 September, Trump staged an event at which he talked with business leaders and looked inside “the cab of a new truck”. He also held a Rose Garden press conference “on the work we had all been doing to combat Covid-19”. “Somewhat ironically, considering his circumstances”, Meadows writes, Trump spoke about a new testing strategy “supposed to give quicker, more accurate readings about whether someone was positive or not.” The White House had still not told the public Trump tested positive and then negative two days before. On debate day, 29 September, Meadows says, Trump looked slightly better – “emphasis on the word slightly”. “His face, for the most part at least, had regained its usual light bronze hue, and the gravel in his voice was gone. But the dark circles under his eyes had deepened. As we walked into the venue around five o’clock in the evening, I could tell that he was moving more slowly than usual. He walked like he was carrying a little extra weight on his back.” Trump called aides hours before Capitol riot to discuss how to stop Biden victory Read more Trump gave a furious and controversial performance, continually hectoring Biden to the point the Democrat pleaded: “Will you shut up, man? This is so unpresidential.” The host, Chris Wallace of Fox News, later said Trump was not tested before the debate because he arrived late. Organisers, Wallace said, relied on the honor system. The White House had not said Trump had tested positive and negative three days before. Three days later, on 2 October, Trump announced by tweet that he and his wife, Melania Trump, were positive. That evening, Meadows helped Trump make his way to hospital. During his stay, Meadows helped orchestrate stunts meant to show the president was in good health. Trump recovered, but it has been reported that his case of Covid was much more serious than the White House ever let on.

  16. It was peaceful. From the article: OPP say their main objective in dealing with the Ontario blockades Wednesday is to keep traffic moving in a safe way while also allowing protesters a “safe and peaceful opportunity to exercise their lawful rights, while minimizing the impact on the travelling public.”
  17. Yes, and then this happened... https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-economy-unemployment-race-idUSKBN2431X7 Gap in U.S. Black and white unemployment rates is widest in five years The coronavirus pandemic brought an abrupt end to the record-long U.S. economic expansion just as it was creating better job opportunities for Black workers and other minorities.

  18. Thank you. And you're not doing my homework, you're showing your work for full marks.
  19. Do you have a link to verify? No mention of this in the news.
  20. There was mention earlier of the lower case numbers in Africa. It appears that while that may be the case, the low vaccination numbers have allowed for mutations and now another variant of concern has raised it's ugly head. https://www.bbc.com/news/world-59427770 Coronavirus: Countries shut borders over new South Africa variant https://www.bbc.com/news/live/world-59426277 New Covid variant of huge international concern Summary Health Secretary Sajid Javid tells MPs there is "huge international concern" over a new highly mutated variant - but there are no cases in the UK currently The UK has imposed travel restrictions on six African countries over the variant that vaccines may be less effective against A top health official calls it "the most significant variant" to date, while an Oxford scientist tells the BBC: "It is bad news but it's not doomsday" Countries including Germany, Italy, Israel and Singapore have also restricted travel The agency leading Africa's response to Covid says travel bans are unlikely to reduce the spread of the new variant The World Health Organization cautions against travel bans but is holding a special meeting to discuss the variant
  21. As I posted above, your original 'post' was misinforming. I posted the link to the full article, which you have now provided. So does the 'pertinent' information about ADE that is in the article that you provided do anything to answer your own questions about the safety of the vaccines? You answered your own question, so will that lead to a buy in?
  22. That is a small snippet of the article taken out of context. That is how misinformation and fear is spread. Here is the full page, and a more pertinent section: https://www.chop.edu/centers-programs/vaccine-education-center/vaccine-safety/antibody-dependent-enhancement-and-vaccines Can the new COVID-19 vaccines cause ADE? Neither COVID-19 disease nor the new COVID-19 vaccines have shown evidence of causing ADE. People infected with SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, have not been likely to develop ADE upon repeat exposure. This is true of other coronaviruses as well. Likewise, studies of vaccines in the laboratory with animals or in the clinical trials in people have not found evidence of ADE. Following the experience with dengue vaccine, early during the COVID-19 pandemic, concerns about ADE were top of mind. During this time, a few scientists tried to predict whether ADE would occur by evaluating genes for similarities and differences. While this was a useful approach at a time when we did not have much information about what might happen in people, we have since accumulated several lines of clinical evidence that confirm ADE is not an issue for COVID-19 or the vaccines: People who are infected with SARS-CoV-2, or its variants, do not become more susceptible to ADE. Many vaccinated people have been exposed to the virus, and its variants, and most of them have developed no disease or mild symptoms. A very small number have experienced more severe disease (“breakthrough infection”), and these individuals have not shown evidence of ADE. Unfortunately, some people continue to spread misinformation suggesting that ADE is an ongoing concern for COVID-19 vaccines; however, scientists and clinicians are continuing to monitor COVID-19 infections and, to date, no evidence to validate this concern has emerged.
  23. And then there's this... Who takes responsibility when front line workers start getting shot? https://www.vice.com/en/article/v7ddgm/qanons-queen-of-canada-calls-for-followers-to-kill-people-vaccinating-children QAnon's 'Queen of Canada' Calls for Followers to 'Kill' People Vaccinating Children QAnon influencer Romana Didulo told her 70,000 followers that "duck-hunting season is open” and by ducks she means healthcare workers, politicians, and journalists. Earlier this week, the so-called QAnon Queen of Canada opened up “duck-hunting” season in the Great White North. Now, to be clear, we aren’t talking about hunters in hip waders going after our fine-feathered friends with a loyal hound by their side. These “duck hunters” are “soldiers” of Roman Didulo—a Canadian woman who has convinced thousands of QAnon adherents that she’s the secret ruler of Canada—targeting health care workers administering COVID-19 vaccines to children, politicians, journalists, and others who make up the cabal at the heart of the QAnon conspiracy. In a post on Sunday to her over 70,000 followers on Telegram, Didulo issued an order to the soldiers of her “Kingdom of Canada’s Military.” She demanded the mass arrests of those they consider opposition, and wanted her soldiers to take control of newspapers and seize the border. “Shoot to kill anyone who tries to inject Children under the age of 19 years old with Coronavirus19 vaccines/ bioweapons or any other Vaccines,” she wrote. “This order is effective immediately.” A follow-up post on Tuesday changed the wording from “shoot to kill” to “arrest.” “Please, use airports, hospitals, schools, stadiums, and other public venues to hold and detain all traitors,” the post said. “They will stay there until Military Tribunal is held for each one of them until the day they are executed via firing squad or hanging.” Didulo doesn’t have a passive audience; over the summer, the British Columbian woman mobilized her audience into sending out thousands of cease-and- desist letters across North America (some have recently popped up in Europe) demanding businesses, governments, and police forces stop all activities related to combating the pandemic. Didulo implies that her duck hunters are secretive military veterans she’s bringing in from the U.S. But on Telegram (a chat app known for their lax rules), over 6,000 of her online supporters have signed up to be a part of “Canada Military 2.0”—a separate, but inactive, Telegram page where followers pledge to be part of Didulo’s fighting force. “I have offered my life for humanity and joined our Canadian duck hunters,” one of her followers wrote. Didulo has made separate pages to vet prospective members of her Canadian and U.S. duck-hunting teams to help with her mission. The Canadian group currently has just over 100 members, including the man who posted the images of the firearms. Inside the chatroom one of the duck hunters shared information about a specific vaccine popup in an Ontario mall “specifically targeting young children.” “It’s time to react now,” replied one person. “Hurry up and wait is no longer the thing to say.” Her followers are pledging their support to their Queen’s initiative. “A few duck hunters coming in can stay with me… I’m ready… all my hunting gear is ready… let’s roll,” wrote one in the public chat and posted a picture of firearms strewn across a table. DECREES ROMANA MADE TO HER FOLLOWERS. PHOTO VIA TELEGRAM. “I myself can’t contribute much, other than myself and my Duck hunting gear,” wrote another. “I am ready and willing to help our Allies in cleaning up the Bad Actors in my small town of Lamont Alberta.” Threats and violence against health care workers have been constant since COVID-19 vaccinations started rolling out earlier this year, and have ramped up after jurisdictions greenlit the vaccine for children (Canada just approved the Pfizer vaccine for 5-11-year-olds last week). For many of Didulo’s followers, the vaccine is a death sentence so vaccinating children is akin to murder. It’s unknown how many followers take Didulo and her tactics seriously, or just consider them a part of the LARP (live action role-playing) and gamification that makes the QAnon conspiracy community so appealing, but experts say there’s cause for concern. Many QAnon adherents have been involved in violent acts like murders or kidnappings and the FBI has warned the violence may only increase with time. In an already confounding ecosystem where people will make their way en masse to Texas in anticipation of JFK coming back from the dead, Didulo and her followers somehow manage to be more bizarre than their contemporaries. To her followers, Queen Romana is the true leader of Canada who, alongside Donald Trump, is waging a war against a pedophilic cabal that runs the world. In a few short weeks this spring, Didulo went from a relatively unknown online conspiracy theorist to having a large following after she was “confirmed” by some large QAnon accounts. In some sense, she fills the void left by the titular Q, who has not posted in almost a year. Didulo administers her decrees on her large Telegram page, a confusing collection of militarist statements, modern-day spirituality, and postings about intergalactic beings. She typically addresses her followers through either simple messages (littered with emojis) or videos featuring her sitting on a brown couch in front of a nondescript wall. “I call her the ‘hardest LARP in the movement.’ Probably even greater than Q themself,” Alex Mendela, a researcher who works on The Q Origins Project, told VICE World News. “She’s unique in the sense that she’s sort of filled the role of an absent Q, but has taken on an independently authoritative role all her own.” Mandela added that while Didulo has yet to order her audience to violence directly, and mostly skirts around it, he’s concerned about “one of her followers actually taking it seriously, getting riled-up by all the urgent rhetoric and frustrated that he/she/they are not receiving clear directives, and taking matters into their own hands with self-directed violence.” Peter Smith, a journalist with the Canadian Anti-Hate Network who recently penned a story on Didulo, told VICE World News that her “real power has always been the ability to mobilize (her) following into types of real-world action.” “In the time we have spent monitoring her numerous channels, that following has more than tripled and the rhetoric from Didulo has only grown more severe, culminating in calls for armed action to be taken by people from both the U.S. and Canada,” said Smith. “We do not know how many, if any, of her audience have decided to heed the call to go ‘duck hunting’ in Canada, but with such a large and engaged base of supporters, it is extremely worrying.” The duck hunters are a massive hit with her audience. Some of her fans have requested the duck hunters attend specific events such as local school board meetings, or target specific people like Sarnia city councillors, environmentalist David Suzuki, or even one follower’s ex-girlfriend. Other fans, upon Didulo’s request, are offering their homes to the “duck hunters” as lodging. “I am more than happy to be able to house a couple of duck hunters!” wrote one. “I only have a one-bedroom apartment but would happily give up my bedroom.” If they can’t find lodging with her followers, Didulo instructs her duck hunters to stay at a motel and “file the invoice to the Department of Finance/Treasury Department of Canada.” Not all her followers are celebrating the future deaths of health care workers and members of the cabal. One follower, seemingly convinced these extrajudicial killings were taking place, begged Didulo to spare the life of her son, a teacher. “Please don’t hurt the innocent in this,” they pleaded. “People here are brainwashed. It’s not their fault. My whole family took the shot believing it was the right thing to do but were falsely led. They are good people. Please.”
