    Awesome!

    I really on a "higher power" too.

    Foundational for healing to truly happen.

    I the practitioner and human get out of the way and allow a higher power to help whomever is with me be whole again with their own DNA reintegration abilities :)
    (and sure there are skills and left brain things to know, yada yada)

    Finally a common thread we can sew together!

    As much as I'm most times ignoring Compassion's posts, an article that disagrees with his "Moderna And Pfizer Skipped Animal Trials On mRNA COVID Vaccines Because They Already Knew The Animals Would Sicken And Die" reply to your post:

    Pfizer and Moderna did not skip animal trials

    Incoming CDC director: Expect 500,000 Covid-19 deaths by mid-February

    (CNN) In less than a year, Covid-19 has killed almost 400,000 Americans.

    And in just the next month, another 100,000 lives could be lost to the disease, the incoming director of the US Centers For Disease Control and Prevention said.

    "By the middle of February, we expect half a million deaths in this country," Dr. Rochelle Walensky told CBS' "Face the Nation" on Sunday.

    I want to explain why I think this screen capture has been manipulated.

    1. The top-right side of the address bar is uneven. There is also a weird grey box top-right corner of page.

    2. The line that reads "Category: Covid-19 Test kits/Instruments, apparatus used in Diagnostic Testing".
    The text overlaps onto the column headings. I have never seen text render over columns like that before.

    3. Base of the scroll window has odd thickness lines.

    What's going on here?

    The story is being reported globally with some sources having more video and/or pictures than others. It is going to boil down to just one thing in all of them I believe...was all this due to simple ignorance? As I and many others have said previous in this thread, we will likely never know the full/real story as to the origin(s).

    Almost 30% of Covid patients in England readmitted to hospital after discharge – study

    Nearly a third of people who were discharged from hospitals in England after being treated for Covid-19 were readmitted within five months – and almost one in eight died, a study suggests.

    The research, which is still to be peer-reviewed, also found a higher risk of problems developing in a range of organs after hospital discharge in those younger than 70 and ethnic minority individuals.

    Aldi, Trader Joe's and others will pay workers to get a vaccine

    New York (CNN Business)A growing number of large US chains are offering their workers incentives to get Covid-19 vaccines.

    Grocery chain Aldi said Tuesday that it will provide its hourly workers with two hours of pay for each vaccine dose they receive, giving workers up to four hours total of paid time off. Aldi also said it will "cover costs associated with vaccine administration" for employees who want to get vaccinated.

    https://www.cnn.com/2021/01/19/business/aldi-trader-joes-dollar-general-covid-vaccine/index.html

    No one's going to get rich off of this, but I guess it will give some added incentive.

    Single Covid vaccine dose in Israel 'less effective than we thought'

    Israel’s coronavirus tsar has warned that a single dose of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine may be providing less protection than originally hoped, as the country reported a record 10,000 new Covid infections on Monday.

    In remarks reported by Army Radio, Nachman Ash said a single dose appeared “less effective than we had thought”, and also lower than Pfizer had suggested.

    By contrast, those who had received their second dose of the Pfizer vaccine had a six- to 12-fold increase in antibodies, according to data released by Sheba Medical Center in Tel Hashomer on Monday.

    Not as good as LSD probably :ROFL:...I'd rather have some PDQ (old school powder added milk for a tasty chocolate treat). It might prove to be effective...lots of studies going on but many that have concluded show it does no measurable good for covid19...should be definitive info eventually.

    FACT: Studies show hydroxychloroquine does not have clinical benefits in treating COVID-19
    Hydroxychloroquine or chloroquine, a treatment for malaria, lupus erythematosus, and rheumatoid arthritis, has been under study as a possible treatment for COVID-19. Current data shows that this drug does not reduce deaths among hospitalised COVID-19 patients, nor help people with moderate disease.* The use of hydoxychloroquine and chloroquine is accepted as generally safe for patients with malaria and autoimmune diseases, but its use where not indicated and without medical supervision can cause serious side effects and should be avoided.

    * More decisive research is needed to assess its value in patients with mild disease or as pre- or post-exposure prophylaxis in patients exposed to COVID-19.

    COVID-19: British pilot discharged from US hospital after 243 days of coronavirus treatment

    Nicholas Synnott works for British Airways and was taken ill after arriving in Houston last March.

    The 59-year-old was admitted to UT Health and Memorial Hermann Hospital in the city where he was placed on a ventilator and heart and lung machine.

    He was treated there for eight months, with his wife Nicola, 54, by his side every day.

    "Every organ of his body was affected by COVID-19. But yet, because his health was so good as a pilot prior to the illness, he could sustain all this and survive something as serious as this," cardiologist Dr Biswajit Kar told ABC 30 News.

    Thanks for providing that link.

    Ok, I see it was a bad screen capture, but an accurate representation of what was published.

    I've just done a bit of research and this came up:

    Fact check: World Bank website does not show COVID-19 testing kits were purchased in 2017 and 2018 | Reuters

    https://www.reuters.com/article/uk-...s-werepurchasedin-2017-and-2018-idUSKBN26025U

    VERDICT
    False. The products and product codes shown in the screenshots of the WITS website have been used since 2017 but not in relation to COVID-19. The product descriptions on the website were updated with COVID-related labels in April 2020. Due to misinterpretation, WITS then reverted the product descriptions around Sept. 7, 2020 to clarify the products predated COVID-19.

    This article was produced by the Reuters Fact Check team.

    If you look at the webarchive URL, the capture is actually dated April 2020 (20200904...).

    I've tried going back to 2017 in webarchive but I suspect the URL string was changed by the CMS when that page was updated in 2020.

    More info:

    https://healthfeedback.org/claimrev...7-and-2018-claim-is-based-on-mislabeled-data/

    https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/countries-covid-19-tests-2018/

    And I'm going to ignore any further posts that are not covid-19 news or science specific from now on. Hope you understand ;)

    Sure - when you relabel death stats and fudge numbers like Gates loves doing (he really likes the book HOW TO LIE WITH STATISTICS)


    This could happen.

    Will total mortality be higher than normal expectations!?? :xf.confused:O_o

    Be sure to ask epidemiologists later in the year :)

    Vending machines with sodas and GMO, fast food chains laced with artery clogging poisons and liquor stores vending beer, wine and cigarettes - all within a short reach of your neighborhood!

    Meaning they are both?



    Seems like they have nothing else to do besides regurgitate propaganda and deny intelligent discourse regularly...

    Financial incentives make sense for this behavior.

    I don't know if they are paid or not. I do know most of them just repeat what the fake news media tells them.
