Important Note:  

Just like everything here at Peak Prosperity since 5/12/21, the Daily Digest is under ‘new management.’  We’re looking for ways to make it better. I guess we should start with the purpose. The Daily Digest is the place for breaking news and things that we should be aware of and even lightly discuss. It’s meant to help us all stay informed.

Any ideas or suggestions you have for making it better would be appreciated.  

Thank you,

The PP team

Long COVID-19 Linked to Early Aging of Immune System, According to Study

While the effects of COVID-19 are now generally well understood, the long-term effects are still subject to much research. New studies show the effect of severe cases of the virus on the immune system and the premature aging of T-cells suggest a possible explanation for Long COVID-19.

Origin of Covid — Following the Clues

“I’ll describe the two theories, explain why each is plausible, and then ask which provides the better explanation of the available facts. It’s important to note that so far there is no direct evidence for either theory. Each depends on a set of reasonable conjectures but so far lacks proof. So I have only clues, not conclusions, to offer. But those clues point in a specific direction. And having inferred that direction, I’m going to delineate some of the strands in this tangled skein of disaster.”

EXC: Navarro’s 9 “Indisputable” Facts Linking Fauci to COVID-19 Origin

Is Dr. Anthony Fauci the father of the Wuhan virus? If that virus escaped from the Wuhan virology lab, it’s the most ironic yes in all of American history.

What’s Going On? India Sees Surge Of Deaths And Injuries Following COVID-19 Vaccine Roll-Out

After seeing relatively good success in handling the COVID crisis with an emphasis on early treatments such as Ivermectin, India is all of a sudden seeing a surge in cases and deaths being attributed to the COVID-19 virus. But some are wondering if the ramping up of COVID “vaccines” is the cause behind these recent surges.

ECONOMY

Commentary: Chip Shortage Forcing Farmers to Plan Ahead

The biggest factor impacting the ability of U.S. farmers to produce the food we need has nothing to do with the weather, the markets, trade, regulations, or disease. The worldwide shortage of computer chips will impact all aspects of agriculture for the next two years and beyond.  Almost every piece of farm equipment, like most everything else in our lives, needs a computer chips to operate. Due in part to the Covid 19 Pandemic, there is a massive worldwide shortage of chips; and the industry is unable to meet the skyrocketing demand. Industry sources say the current shortage will not be resolved until sometime in 2022.

Fidelity Launches Trading Accounts For Teens As Battle For Next Generation Of Day Traders Heats Up

And since younger investors have signaled that they prefer the gamefied, zero-commission speculation free-for-all to contributing a predetermined percentage of their paychecks to a retirement account, Fidelity has decided to give them what they want. As WSJ reports, in an effort to “open the door to a new generation of investors”, Fidelity is launching new credit and debit cards, along with investing and savings accounts, to teenagers aged 13 to 17. Like Robinhood and its other competitors, Fidelity won’t charge account fees or commissions for online trading.

ENVIRONMENT

How Bad is Bitcoin for the Environment?

Bitcoin’s (BTC-USD) environmental impact is in the spotlight after Tesla (TSLA) abandoned plans to accept it as payment due to environmental concerns.

No New Oil, Gas Or Coal Development If World Is To Reach Net Zero By 2050, Says World Energy Body

Exploitation and development of new oil and gas fields must stop this year and no new coal-fired power stations can be built if the world is to stay within safe limits of global heating and meet the goal of net zero emissions by 2050, the world’s leading energy organisation has said.  In its strongest warning yet on the need to drastically scale back fossil fuels, the International Energy Agency (IEA) also called for no new fossil-fuel cars to be sold beyond 2035, and for global investment in energy to more than double from $2tn (£1.42tn) a year to $5tn (£3.54tn).

    Wade Article on the Origin of Covid

    The Nicholas Wade article is the perfect type of article for people at Peak Prosperity to read.  Full of facts and reasoned opinion.  He doesn't give "absolute" statements but great reasoning for his opinion.  And notwithstanding the true origins of the Covid virus, it shows how dangerous virus experimentation, especially Gain of Function experimentation, can be. I am not qualified to give full endorsement or rebuttal but I would hope that there are some vetted and qualified (as opposed to self-qualified) virologists that can write either supporting or opposing opinions.

    Got an Itch?

    Vax and scratch, baby.  I might move back to NY.  My state only offers bunny and goat snuggles at the vax fair (which is still nice, BTW).

    New York to reward vaccinations with lottery tickets

    New York will give individuals who get vaccinated next week a free state lottery ticket as an incentive to urge more people to be inoculated.

    New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) announced the new program, dubbed Vax & Scratch, on Thursday, joining a number of cities and states that have implemented vaccine incentives to persuade residents to receive the shot.

    The program will give a free New York Lottery scratch-off ticket for the Mega Multiplier Lottery to any individuals over the age of 18 who get vaccinated at certain locations across the state between May 24 and May 28.
