Ik volg Chris sinds het begin van de epidemie (eind januari), toevallig de dag dat ik in de AOW ging. Naast PP volg ik met name drBeen, Medcram.
Ik heb al 15 jaar een volkstuin, dus dat veranderde weinig, ik eet er het hele jaar van. (hoef dus slechts vlees en bier te kopen). Wel kweek ik dit jaar wat Artemisia soorten, om samen met vlierbessen een ‘corona -organics’ te koken, zoiets als men in Madagascar maakt met blijkbaar groot succes.
Afgezien van de gebruikelijke supplementen doe ik nu een jaarlijkse ivermectine profylaxe (voor vogels zegt het pipetflesje). 1 vol flesje van 10 ml per jaar.
What would be beneficial to China by invading the US??
I can not see any considering the costs. It seems actually very silly.
I don’t have to. Most of their products work just fine and are affordable, or are simply nowhere else available, like action cams and their optics.
For the rest: It is not my country, so it is not my bussiness! If a majority the Chinese, the Venezolans , the Cubans, the Iranians or the Russians want to change their system, good for them. But they definitely are not helped by my interference! To me all this top-down fake indigination about countries and their governments seems just a prelude to sanctions, hostilities or even military agression.
In the US it seems like a signature opinion for the dems to hate Russia and the reps to hate Russia.. All that seems very silly and immature from my side of the pond (Netherlands).
It could be true (on what scale?), but be aware that there is lots of fake news and propaganda circulating about China: Pompeo and the republicans, the heirs of Tjang kai tjek from Taiwan, the falun gong, the western sponsored rioters in Hongkong, the Uygur propaganda (part of it affiliated with al Qaida), Sky news, Cisko, etc. etc.
I would not want to live in China, but then, I’m not Chinese! I think they are doing a great job containing COVID, and I am mostly very happy with the stuff I order from China, most of it not obtainable or affordable elsewhere. I am just as opposed against the Russophobe bias voiced by the democrats.
In Europe, where I live, fortunately these opinions are a bit more moderate. The general rule here is: the less people are informed, the most biased they are (except political operators).
Neither Russia, China or Iran has any benefit in destabilizing the US. The destabilization is making ‘great progress’ all by itself anyway. (Sun Tzu: ‘if your opponent is destroying itself: Do nothing’, –The Art of War)
A rapidly destabilizing US is only dangerous for them, as the failing superpower tends to look for military adventures to distract and unify the people against a common enemy. Even if they would not lose the war, the costs in blood and treasure are huge, only willingly to be taken up by completely desperate (rapidly destabilizing) states (which they seem to be not).
I happened to have looked at the case fatality rates from worldometers this week as well (had to copy it into a spreadsheet). These data can reveal many hidden truths.
Chris looked at wearing masks; I marked the countries where I assume CHQ and other promising off-patent drugs are available in green and sorted them from high to low. 2 very distinct categories! The green sinks to the bottom!
Of course it is an estimate, as we need confirmation how available these treatments really are, and in which stage of the epidemic they became available. Exceptions to the trend are in conflict zones and semi-failed states, with Yemen on top.
I adviced my daughter to get rid of her small, expensive LA home and to rent in her new location. Although the rent is quite high, it seems that she sold at the peak, and even made a profit. Now things are in transition among all the upheavals, it is not even sure that she will remain in her new location for a long time. I expect home prices to drop, perhaps dramatically, so she’ll be able to buy something much nicer.
I myself was planning to move to Spain from the Netherlands, since I just retired. Due to the lockdowns and the dangers of traveling, I will have to wait until the next summer or even a year from that. Probably there will be even more (older, rural) properties available then, for a lower price.
Thanks! I happened to find a very good lecture about Ivermectin from dr Been (a great professor- cell physiology)). It seems that normal doses work fine!
The berries need to be cooked, as they contain cyanogen, which is converted into cyanide in the body. Not enough to kill, but enough to make very nauseous and sick.
Heat destroys it completely, the flowers are safe. Leaves and bark and stems are not edible. In the drying process the little flowers come loose from the flower stems (which are safe).
