Joh, he looks deformed. And I bet he would never have been able to do the type of work my guys did day in, day out. They were lean and muscular and did a bit of weight training to assist them with lifting and barrowing and the like.

If anything all the sculpting made him weaker. And now he’s dead.

Re the ‘Independents’, I live in Indi, it’s a traditional Lib/NP seat that Sophie Mirrabella managed to lose (that’s another story) and turn into an ‘independent’ seat. the current member is Helen Haines, she’s supported by Holmes a’Court like the other fauxdependents. For an independent she has an amazing amount of money to spend and an incredibly well organised campaign, I assume she’s using mainly volunteers but I have no idea how she gets so many. Someone said that as she’s really a green in disguise, all the greens know that and being the focused maddies they are they have thrown their energy and time behind her.

The thing that I don’t understand is the number of signs she has up on farms, I would’ve thought the cockies would know what she is but they don’t seem to.

rickw, what’s it like over your way? Has she signs plastered everywhere?

Anyone wondering why Tony Dinobore (One of the 2 independent catamites who led to the Red Queens reign) hasnt thrown his hat in the ring for a another attempt to harvest electoral funding wonder no more.

Apparently the rules were changed and pollies get money refunded per vote rather than a blob of money straight to their bank accounts.
So they have to actually show expenditures to get money, not like previously.

Has it been established which organisations are backing all of these prominent ‘independent’ candidates running in the posh deep blue electorates around the country? This Kate Chaney chick running in Curtin who is basically the opposition (have no idea who the ALP candidate is, haven’t seen any signage around) – she’s got a well-funded, slick campaign that looks suspiciously similar to those other independent candidates in similarly salubrious electorates.

Have you looked at the policy platforms of these women? They’re basically Greens. In fact, I think they’re Greens in disguise. The Chaney woman wants stronger action on climate change, the establishment of some national corruption fighting body (I suppose a national equivalent to ICAC) and makes a big thing out of how she’s pro-business, pro-free market, supports sensible and prudent economic policies, economic development etc etc. Now, in this electorate there are lots of well off people who can afford luxury beliefs so they love to hear about taking more action on climate change, they probably don’t care that much about the ICAC for Oz policy but it sounds harmless enough and it allows the candidates to play the moral outsider card.

But voters here are basically very Liberal, so it’s the claim about how she’s so pro-business, free market, restrained government spending and such that I guess her campaign strategists think are going to hook those Liberal voters in. Here’s the thing, though – look under the hood at what she means when she says she wants sensible economic policy, she’s pro business and so forth. It’s all Green agenda stuff. When she says she’s pro-business, it’s all in the context of renewballs and carbon neutral crap. When she talks about sensible government spending, she’s talking about spending on green energy. All of the standard ‘economic conservative’ language she uses is predicated on the assumption that transitioning into the carbon neutral economy is going to be tremendously profitable so it’s all wonderful investment opportunities for business and government. Of course that’s prudent and sensible government spending.

She’s a Green. How is her platform different from the Green platform? Okay, she can’t come out with all of the woke crap in this electorate that Greens run on- that’s too scary for voters here. But she’s lineball with them on everything else. Who’s paying for your campaign, Kate?

Ms Keneally moved to Liverpool from her Scotland Island home last year to contest the heavily Catholic seat of Fowler for Labor.

Love to know which part of Liverpool. Maybe a penthouse or equivalent apartment on one of those dog box high rise that have sprouted up on the northern end of Bigge st border the Hume Hwy or the 2 new ones on the 5 ways but can’t see her in an ex Housing Commission fibro on Hoxton Park rd. Even then I think she will not reside there in entirety. Good to see the Viets giving her stick in Cabramatta, I was last there just before COVID struck. Food is usually very good and cheap.

Look, were I citing official COVID or vax deaths, then sure that might be a little “rubbery” as it were, while they massage the data so they don’t look bad.
But all cause is a bit harder to fudge that way, if you get what I mean – no reason to hide how many died, plenty of reason to hide why they died.

I haven’t checked the release dates on previous years to see if they are on a similar schedule, which might indicate they are a bit worried about the actual all cause numbers – feel free to check that sort of thing yourself.

If you know somewhere to get all cause death stats in this country that isn’t government, I’m happy for you to let me know where to get it.

Finally, what I want has nothing to do with actual data – the data is what it is, and doesn’t care how I feel about it. “Facts don’t care about your feelings” – Ben Shapiro.

Toxin-like peptides in plasma, urine and faecal samples from COVID-19 patients

The types of toxic-like peptides found resemble known conotoxins, phospholipases A2, metalloproteinases, prothrombin activators, coagulation factors, usually present in animal venoms, which are known to have high specificity and affinity towards human ion channels, receptors, and transporters of the nervous system, like the nicotinic acetylcholine receptor. Cheng et al. 21 reported the discovery of a superantigen-like motif in the S1 Spike protein, as well as two other neurotoxin-like motifs that have peptide similarities to neurotoxins from Ophiophagus (cobra) and Bungarus genera. They conclude that neurotoxin-like motifs are present in SARS-CoV-2 protein products, acting as neurotoxin-like peptides. We checked in the full set of peptides we got (here we report only 36 examples), and we identified, in plasma and faecal samples, toxin-like peptides mapping on kappa 1a-bungarotoxin, Kappa 1b-bungarotoxin from Malayan krait, kappa-2-bungarotoxin and alpha-bungarotoxin from many-banded krait (Uniprot Accession Numbers Q8AY56, Q8AY55, P15816, and P60615, respectively), which were reported by Cheng and colleagues. Furthermore, we looked at the amino acid changes currently reported in GISAID data 22 , analysed by CoV-GLUE-Viz (update 15/09/2021) 23 , and occurring in the Y 674QTQTNSPRRAR 685 motif identified by these authors as homologous to neurotoxin motifs of animal venom proteins. We observed the existence of amino acid variations which makes this motif even more similar to the neurotoxin motifs of animal venom proteins (like variations Q677S and T676A observed in sequences assigned to PANGO Lineage B.1.596). Experiments to assess neurotoxicity of these peptides and of spike protein on 3D neuronal/glial model (“neurospheres”) obtained from human induced Pluripotent Stem Derived Neural Stem Cells (iPS-NSCs) are currently ongoing.

What follows is our attempt to elaborate a potential relation between their presence and extra-pulmonary COVID-19 symptomatology.

Conotoxins
Conotoxins are neurotoxic peptides isolated from the venom of marine (genus Conus) cone snails. In their mature form, they consist of 10 to 30 amino acid residues, with often one or more disulphide bonds, which are used to classify them in structural classes (?-conotoxins, ?-conotoxins, and ?-conotoxins are the major classes). The mechanism of action of conotoxins is not yet fully understood 24 . Studies have found that they are able to modulate the activity of several receptors, including ion channels, nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChRs) and acetylcholine-degrading enzymes (acetylcholinesterases), thus resulting in the alteration of acetylcholine levels and of cholinergic transmission 25– 27 . Regarding cholinesterases, a potential association between cholinesterase levels and severity of pneumonia in COVID-19 patients has been proposed 28 .

The presence of conotoxin peptides might explain the occurrence of many symptoms (like hyposmia, hypogeusia and the signs typical of Guillain-Barre syndrome) observed in some COVID-19 patients. Their presence can alter normal functioning of ion channels, nicotinic acetylcholine receptors and of acetylcholine levels.

Phospholipases A2
Phospholipases A2 (PLA 2, E.C. 3.1.1.4) hydrolyse phospholipids and lead to release of lysophosphatidic acid and arachidonic acid 29 . Arachidonic acid is a major precursor of many pro-inflammatory mediators like leukotriene, thromboxane and prostaglandin; as a consequence, abnormal presence of active PLA 2 can induce severe inflammation 30 . In animal venoms, PLA 2 act as neurotoxic proteins: they hydrolyse membrane phospholipids of the motor nerve terminal, and the plasma membrane of skeletal muscle, thus triggering a severe inflammatory degenerative response, which in turn leads to degeneration of the nerve terminal and skeletal muscle 29 . The drug dexamethasone can inhibit prostaglandins synthesis and leukotriene formation 31 . As dexamethasone is still the only therapeutic shown to be effective against the novel coronavirus in patients 32 with severe symptoms, it can be that the positive effect of this drug on COVID-19 patients is also due to the reduction of the here identified PLA 2-like peptides.

Metalloproteinases
The last example of identified toxin-like peptides is those recognised as metalloproteinases present in animal venoms, zinc-dependent enzymes of varying molecular weight having multidomain organization. These toxic enzymes cause haemorrhage, local myonecrosis, skin damage, and inflammatory reaction 33 . It has been reported that symptomatic COVID-19 patients have significantly lower zinc levels in comparison to controls and that zinc deficient patients develop more complications 34 . The presence of this specific group of toxin-like peptides, which capture zinc, can be one of the reasons for such significantly low zinc levels in symptomatic COVID-19 patients.

Similarity searches by TBLASTN 14 with relaxed parameters at the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) website (see Methods) revealed (in addition to mRNA sequences from the animal species reported in Table 1) almost identical short stretches (up to 10 amino acids) of these peptides in potential coding regions of many bacterial and viral sequences, but no long potential coding frame entirely covering any of them was found. Consequently, at the time of writing we have not yet identified the “genetic source” of these peptides, which could be:

The SARS-CoV-2 RNA genome with its protein reading set, as proposed by Brogna 35 , who reported the identification in SARS-CoV-2 RNA of many regions encoding for oligopeptides (four–five amino acids long) identical to neurotoxin peptides typical of animal venoms.

The SARS-CoV-2 genome directly read by bacteria, assuming that the SARS-CoV-2 genome, or parts thereof, is capable of replicating with a possible ‘bacteriophage-like’ mode of action, as previously described 36 .

Genomes of bacteria, which, as a reaction to the presence of the virus, secrete these peptides. This could happen by using still not well known and debated mechanisms, like alternative reading due to rRNA sequence heterogeneity (as described in 37, 38), or the involvement of small bacterial ncRNA (sRNAs), known to be key players of gene regulation under conditions like stress response, quorum sensing, or virulence (in this context, in 1984 Coleman et al. reported the micF non-coding RNA as a functional bacterial sRNA 39 ).

A combination of the above e.g. the ‘toxin’ genetic code is present in the bacteria and expression may be triggered by SARS-CoV-2, acting like temperate bacteriophages, which are known to interact with bacteria so that they express (or not) certain genes, as described by Carey et al. 40 .

A detailed 3D structural similarity analysis between the toxin-like peptides found and reference proteins has not yet been conducted. Accordingly, at the time of writing, we can only speculate that these toxin-like peptides are involved in the clinical extra-pulmonary manifestations in symptomatic COVID-19 patients. According to our knowledge, these toxin-like peptides have never been searched in animals considered reservoirs of SARS-CoVs.

Conclusions
The presence of (oligo-)peptides almost identical to toxic components of venoms from animals has been observed. Data and results reported here suggest an association between COVID-19 disease and the release in the body of these, and raise a series of questions:

Are these findings in line with what was proposed by Tizabi et al. 41 , i.e. a potential therapeutic role for nicotine, nicotinic agonists, or positive allosteric modulators of nicotinic cholinergic receptors in COVID-19?

If induced by SARS-CoV-2, can the production of toxin-like peptides be involved in the neurological disorders and injuries observed in hospitalized COVID-19 patients?

If induced by SARS-CoV-2, can the production of toxin-like peptides influence complex diseases apparently triggered or enhanced by COVID-19, like e.g. Guillain-Barré Syndrome 42 or Parkinson’s disease 43 ?

Are toxin-like peptides associated with SARS-CoV-2 infection or to other viral infections or, more in general, is their presence related to sickness condition?

Are our findings supporting the suggestion made by the iVAMP Consortium 44 on the relationships between animal venom glands and microorganisms’ microenvironments?

We consider that the immediate sharing of these results can contribute to the untangling of the multifaceted set of clinical manifestations in symptomatic COVID-19 patients, and to the further understanding of the mechanisms involved.

If there are so many excess deaths, why isn’t there a conga line to the local cemetery. Daily. Those bodies have to be processed somehow, they don’t just disappear. Funeral directors and priests and pastors would be run off their feet.

Johanna has an excellent post on Adam’s Cat. (Hope she doesn’t mind me posting it here.)

What gets me about these announcements about ‘relaxed’ coronavirus restrictions (the same applies in WA) is how complicated they are.

This category of people has to do this, and that category has to do that, except on Sundays and alternate Wednesdays, unless it rains.

It is typical bureaucracy-speak, full of categories and exceptions, and most importantly, reminding us that we are all subject to their whims. Nobody who wants to catch a plane or a train or a bus is beyond their reach, nor are many occupations. As for the bewildering rules about ‘contacts’ – give me strength.

The remarkable ability of a virus to distinguish between States/Territories, whether people are standing or sitting, and the length of time required between jabs, is simply astounding. What a clever, diabolical little critter it is!

@ Calli-

I am told rum balls are quite spectacular if the small kids get into them. It apparently makes them hyper.

Mama Anger once helped out a family friend who was organising her mother’s wake, I think. She made up a large plate of rum balls (with proper rum, as you do) as part of some quite substantial contributions to the spread put on for the grieving family.

The kids found the rum balls, thought they were great and demolished the lot. Confused by their now-hyperactive behaviour, and their declarations of “Mum, these things are GREAT!” she and her husband took a suspicious sniff of what was left of the plate of rum balls, and realised what had happened.

This unintentional hilarity completely changed the course of her experience, from crushing grief to laughter.

Mama Anger was bemused when she was quietly asked a few days later, “So, what did you put in those rum balls?” All was forgiven, and all had a good laugh.

Kids do the darndest things… 🙂

Bruce, SST have been very high across Jan-Feb up this way. We were still seeing above 30 deg last month relying on if the data was “unhomogenised”. The wet season was a fizzer, the lack of cloud cover contributed to that. No TC’s either to facilitate the normal transfer of heat from the sea the atmosphere, they all spun up well out towards New Caledonia or drifted south as lows to give you guys the rains you got.

I have no doubt there was some coral bleaching, however we get to the how much and if it is precedented. I’d say on the balance probably been worse. You were right when I mentioned the 32 deg SST in Halifax Bay a few months back that cure Coral Bleaching screeching.

It’s exactly the same here in Wentworth, and the Labor party is running dead, deliberately so. They did this with Phelps.

I presume Chaney is using her family name, just like Diva Spender, in an attempt to shore up her “Liberal” connections and credentials. However like Spender she’s a fraud.

As for “the ICAC for Oz policy “, this is being pushed by progressive scum in the Greens and Labor and it’s also one of Simon Holmes a Court’s pet projects. Note that it isn’t for any noble or honest intent, they want the same ICAC model as here in NSW because they intend to use it solely against against Liberals and conservatives. ICAC was set up in the late 1980s by the Liberal premier Nick Greiner, and then what happened? ICAC subsequently went after Greiner who was forced to resign, the first ICAC Liberal scalp and not the last. Then, oddly enough, ICAC was AWOL during the seventeen years of very corrupt and rotten Labor governance under premiers Carr, Iemma, Rees and Nobody’s girl….like Eddie Obeid were running amok yet ICAC wasn’t interested however it oddly resurrected itself in 2011 when the Liberals in NSW came to power and since then ICAC has been busy, very busy, destroying people’s careers and trashing reputations and, of course, it’s claimed another two Liberal premier scalps, one over a bottle of Grange Hermitage wine.

Any federal ICAC will be used by the left against Liberals and conservatives. The Liberals know this, but like the cowards they are, especially under Scumbag, watch them capitulate.

As I said, that is the latest they show on their web site – by all means check the dates when they released previous years data and see if they are hiding anything (or at least potentially so). Don’t forget to tell us whether it looks sus or not.
Got anywhere else we can check number of deaths overall? Somewhere, you know, not run by commo-pinko-lefty murderers?
Or perhaps you can find such data for other countries – again, make sure it isn’t from a Gov, ’cause that would be unbelievable, right? They’re all in on it you know.

Seriously, I do take much of what they say with a rather large grain of salt (probably enough to give anyone a heart attack!), but they just aren’t that smart – I have no doubt “death from” has been conflated by “death with” and so on, but I don’t think they are smart enough to convincingly hide millions of extra people dying.

Yes, I think the vaxes are dangerous – it is obvious from the data we have that they are considerably more dangerous than pretty much every other one.
Yes, no-one knows long term consequences – they didn’t do the normal long term trials, so no-one CAN know.
And that’s as true for “most people will be fine” as it is for “shitloads are gonna die” – either could be correct, but WE DON’T KNOW.
And no, I’m not happy about being mercilessly pushed to take it under the circumstances – unethical, arguably illegal (breach of human rights). Didn’t stop them doing it, even when this was pointed out to those whose job is to protect us from these sorts of things. Pretty disgusting.
So of course I am interested in finding out what is going on. But I want data, not speculation. Get me the data and I’ll happily join you to string the bastards up. But if you want to do that based on speculation, you’re worse than you claim they are.

Currently, you haven’t provided evidence, let alone evidence beyond a reasonable doubt. Happy to look at any you have – evidence that is, not speculation.

On Easter TV viewing, I note FTA TV is showing Ben Hur as they usually do each Easter. Apparently it’s an Easter movie?

Channel 7 is showing Hop (a kids easter bunny movie), then there’s a bunch of other random non-Easter related viewing on. However, the reason I post this comment is to ask if Channel 9 is on cocaine?..

I’m just reporting what I see, not stuff from internet people however “trusted” they are. We have been warned against trusting anything from the government. Fair enough. That should also extend to other sources unless we can verify it for ourselves.

And another thing. Shutting down health care in order to handle the imagined influx of Covid patients, isolating and closure of clinics to “stop the spread”, poor staffing and gigantic waiting lists that are the obvious result of the disruption is going to see a spike in severe, undiagnosed illness and subsequent death. Death from panic and neglect.

If you want to muddy the waters, it will be all too easy to ascribe the raw figures to vaxx injury.

Everyone is so heavily invested in their point of view, down to losing jobs, income, family, freedom it will be all but impossible to change minds at this stage, even to entertain the mere thought that there are other factors at work. The whole thing has become emotionally charged, almost to the point of being an article of faith.

Bruce, SST have been very high across Jan-Feb up this way.

RD – The sea anomaly data by depth is interesting. Shows the surface is pretty normal and the warm stuff is all down around the 100 m depth mark. Similar during the previous 4 month period too. That’s BoM’s equatorial data, dunno what it’s like at 10-20 deg south.

Across the other side of the Pacific it seems to be getting serious. I mentioned earlier this week that Portland, Oregon got snow in April for the first time in recorded history. Now there’s this:

“Historic Blizzard” Pounds Northern Plains With Feet Of Snow (14 Apr)

While it’s not entirely unusual for the Northern Plains to observe a snowstorm this late in the season, it’s the intensity of the latest storm, which is battering parts of North Dakota and eastern Montana today, that is truly “historic,” according to the National Weather Service (NWS).

What’s concerning is the Northern Great Plains is an integral part of the nation’s food supply, with vast land devoted to crops and livestock. NWS warns, “significant impacts to livestock are possible.” As the growing season begins, the snow could delay plantings or disrupt what was already planted. This all comes as global food prices are at a record high and supply chains are still mangled.

Not good timing. And this is just as Biden is trying to divert even more US corn to ethanol for cars too. Dems are crazy ignorant druids who can’t even notice what the real world is doing.

Interesting to make an observation then afterwards find the explanation. In this case it was a mystery of why all the birds of Cafe Bruce had vanished for the last half hour or so. Gone, vamoosed.

Answer was in the neighbour’s jacaranda: a collared sparrowhawk stripping meat off a corpse. I couldn’t see what the unfortunate victim was, although there were no evident feathers, so it might’ve been a rat. But likewise I may be short a customer. Anyway I got the answer: the Cafe clientele didn’t want to become a menu item.

Kneel, always remember the boosters are coming.
What is done is done, we all get that.
But you’d be fucking mad to get a booster.
You know I think you weighed everything up when you got the jabs looking at the situation you saw it being.
IN MY OPINION…You, thinking the vaxxes aren’t as deadly as they are decided on getting it.
No job, no career is worth it.
Your call and you did what you did.
However, there are boosters.

So let me get to the point.
Right from the start those that bothered to do a bit of research about CEPI, event 201, Gates involvement….worse still, his wife’s involvement, what Fauci was up to, Jane Halton, etc etc etc, told everyone here right from the start you’ll have to keep getting jabbed, keep complying to keep your tick.
You saved nothing.
You will lose everything by complying anyway, including maybe your life and those of your loved ones you couldn’t stop being jabbed.
Like my son…He went and did it as well.
You take the word of specialists in the field of expertise, would you not?

Would you take the word of those funded by government (your enemy trying to enslave you) or those who are experts going against the government narrative combined with what you can see with your own eyes?
Because those are the people I’ve been listening to, and they predicted from the very start and in specific details that the jab would do exactly what it is doing.
So far….not government…..tick.
Been right so far …..tick.
The other person who has been right about everything is Klaus Schwab.
He’s not predicting anything, he’s just telling what they intend doing next.

” A couple of pommie funeral directors were seeing lots of younger deaths than normal.

There was the life insurance data too. Deaths up 40%.”

Right.

I know you’ll call me on “their” side, or that I’m in denial and looking for excuses, but I’ll say it anyway, because it’s true.

Stop and think – what do you reckon happens when the fear porn in the MSM means people avoid hospitals and doctors because a) they don’t want to “overload” the medical system and b) they might catch it and DIE!; when they get locked down for months or years, so very little fresh air or sunshine; get reduced exercise; probably eat a lot more and put on weight; have increased stress and anxiety from all the above, including extra financial stress, family stresses and so on. What do you reckon that might do to an already statistically over-weight and unhealthy population? What do you reckon that might do in terms of finding diseases such as cancer, diabetes etc early so they can be treated early? And that is on top of the known risks of the vax itself, which is every bit as dangerous (if not more so) than even the alpha and delta variants? And if “long COVID” is real, how does that play in to it? What about inflation, think that adds to stresses? What about – go on laugh – finding freaking toilet paper?

I’m not saying this isn’t concerning, I’m saying it’s multi-factorial and that blaming it all on the vax is just as silly as saying everyone who tested positive for COVID and then died is a COVID death. It’s not that simple – ask an epidemiologist, any one you like. I guarantee you they’ll prevaricate and at best come out with “maybe” and “possibly” and “concerning”, but they will NOT say it is proof – of anything (except people dying)!
We simply won’t have a good handle on any of this until it is all done and dusted – full stop. Sorry to say it, I wish it was otherwise, but that is the reality. You could be underestimating the ultimate damage, or you could be overestimating it. No-one knows. No-one CAN know. Reality is a bitch – deal with it.

Now, if you want to say that those who pushed this shit on us deserve to lose power and never be seen in polite society again at best, and thrown in gaol forever at worst, I’m in full agreement – how do you suggest we go about it, when do we start and how can I help? But if all you are going to do is pull random stuff from the internet then thanks, but I am perfectly capable of finding such “evidence” on the internet for any side of any argument you care to name – it ain’t hard. If you’re not prepared to apply some critical thinking, if you’re just going to throw random shit around to support your argument, go away, I don’t want to hear it!

Analysis By German Prof: “Thousands Of Hidden Deaths Daily” …May Be Greatest Medical Debacle In Human History (21 Jan)

This graph is the key set of data. Note the timings correspond with the order of vaccination: 80+ were first to get it, then 70-79 then 60-69. Look at the peaks.

The curves are for unvaccinated people because they were unvaccinated when they received the first dose, and remained “unvaccinated” until after the second dose. Also see the second set of data in this graph, which shows non-covid mortality in the same period. Same peaks nearly same heights.

Now tell me how it wasn’t due to the vaccines. The data is quite clear. And no I have not seen vax injury data that matches it, because Germany’s health system was just as punitive on medicos reporting such things as ours has been.

Indeed.

Struth wants us to line up in the trenches like British soldiers on the morning of 1 July 1916, on the Somme, fix bayonets and charge. This has about as much chance of success as the British plan did.

We need something more akin to 8 August 1918, the “Black Day” of the German Army in WW I. But for that, we need to know a lot more about the “enemy”. Not just Klaus and his WEF myrmidons, but Soros and dozens more.

If anything all the sculpting made him weaker. And now he’s dead.

The ones you have to watch out for are the small, wiry guys with muscles like steel. We have plenty of them around here, refugees from the former logging and mining towns.

They guys who did my last house move were like that. Never over 5’9, skinny, and could lift a refrigerator solo.

Well Well well. And another long covid symptom coincidence
Snake Venom Induces Human Mast Cell Degranulation
To test whether clinically relevant snake venoms can activate human MCs we first stimulated LAD2 cells with venom from six taxonomically and geographically diverse venomous snakes, which are all listed by the World Health Organization as snakes with a high medical importance in their respective region (1, 24–26). All venoms induced dose-dependent MC degranulation as assessed by ?-hexosaminidase release (Figure 1A). Since LAD2 cells differ considerably from primary hsMCs [for example, they contain comparatively low levels of proteases (27)] we also tested freshly isolated and purified hsMCs. Skin MCs from three individual healthy donors degranulated in the presence of all tested venoms (Figure 1B).

Duk and others, there may be an opportunity for me to participate in the Covax-19 trial (for un-vaccinated people) at my local GP. What are the drawbacks of this vaccine?

My reasons are these. My mother is going into a nursing hoe and to visit her as an un-vaccinated person I will have to wear full PPE – their rulez.

As much as I dont want to do this, I do want to spend any remaining time I have with my mother (which is not so long she is old and frail and a stack of health issues not least diabetes, dicky heart, high BP, an severe fluid restrictions, yadayada.)

And I would feel like shyte for the rest of my life if I put my principles above holding her hand and smiling with her and al the communication and interaction we should have between mothers and daughters.

I just want some informed comment so I can make a balanced decision. Thanks

One drawback is I might be inexplicably attracted to light …

Is on the money.

The wheels come off any sensible discussion about Covid and Covid vaccination once you enter a world where:

1. It’s taken as an article of faith that an omnipotent government can do anything it wants to change and suppress data, silently, flawlessly and without detection.

2. Huuuge claims by Trusted Bloggers – a 40% increase in deaths, 84% of vaccinated mothers miscarry, zero deaths from Covid-related coronary disease before vaccination started, and so on – are accepted as Points of Truth without any supporting data.

We all know that governments always, always, fuck up whenever they try misinformation on.
Always.

The leap of faith to suppose that governments are somehow Narrative Ninjas at the vanishing point of [enter conspiracy theory here] is just extraordinary.

Similarly with the Big Claims.
Why would anyone not notice a 40% increase in deaths? Or a PD James style absence of babies? Again an extraordinary suspension of disbelief.

Hoping all involved are OK, it nevertheless has to be said that a security detail shouldn’t be crashing their vehicle on a sleepy country road in Tasmania. Questions will have to be asked.

According to a news report:

“The crash involved an unmarked police car and a Mitsubishi Triton, which were both travelling west between Deloraine and Latrobe,” Tasmania Police said in a statement.

“Circumstances surrounding the crash are being investigated, however initial enquiries indicate that the Triton has collided with the rear of the police vehicle, while attempting to merge.”

Oops. Ran up the back of the cops and pushed them off the embankment. Probably a few demerits and a reasonable fine coming that driver’s way.

BTW, Tassie has great country roads. I competed in several Targa Tasmania events and a few Rally Tasmania. On small sections of some roads the bitumen doesn’t ever see direct sunlight and at particular times of the year has this black ‘moss’ growing on it – not that I’m an expert in such things but I reckon it would have to be one of the most frictionless natural substance known to man. Effectively identical to driving on ice.

Video shows police officer kneeling on Black man before fatally shooting him

Video shows Lyoya running from the officer who stopped him for driving with a license plate that didn’t belong to the vehicle. They struggled in front of several homes while Lyoya’s passenger got out and watched.
Winstrom said the fight over the Taser lasted about 90 seconds. In the final moments, the officer was on top of Lyoya, kneeling on his back at times to subdue him.

See, kneeling on the poor benighted pickaninny before plugging him for no good reason at all.

Then theres the reality.
Cop has tried reasoning, tried physical force, tried taser and has then lost his taser (Im unsure if its been dropped or if the shot chap had it).
Its an awful shooting, but the cop looked about rooted by that stage.

14:30 on has most of the fight.
