  2. Hello,

    You can now get verified on forum.

    The way it's gonna work is that you can send me a PM with a verification picture. The picture has to contain you and forum name on piece of paper or on your body and your username or my username instead of the website name, if you prefer that.

    I need to be able to recognize you in that picture. You need to have some pictures of your self in your gallery so I can compare that picture.

    Please note that verification is completely optional and it won't give you any extra features or access. You will have a check mark (as I have now, if you want to look) and verification will only mean that you are who you say you are.

    You may not use a fake pictures for verification. If you try to verify your account with a fake picture or someone else picture just spam me with fake pictures, you will get Banned!

    Flue virus with 'pandemic potential' found in China
    By Michelle RobertsHealth editor, BBC News online 29 June 2020

    A new strain of flu that has the potential to become pandemic has been identified in China by scientists.

    It emerged recently and is carried by pigs, but can infect humans, they say.

    The researchers are concerned that it could mutate further so that it can spread easily from person to person, and trigger a global outbreak.

    They say it has "all the hallmarks" of being highly adapted to infect humans - and needs close monitoring.

    As it's new, people could have little or no immunity to the virus.

    Pandemic threat
    A bad new strain of influenza is among the top disease threats that experts are watching for, even as the world attempts to bring to an end the current coronavirus pandemic.

    The last pandemic flu the world encountered - the swine flu outbreak of 2009 that began in Mexico - was less deadly than initially feared, largely because many older people had some immunity to it, probably because of its similarity to other flu viruses that had circulated years before.

    That virus, called A/H1N1pdm09, is now covered by the annual flu vaccine to make sure people are protected.

    The new flu strain that has been identified in China is similar to 2009 swine flu, but with some new changes.

    So far, it hasn't posed a big threat, but Prof Kin-Chow Chang and colleagues who have been studying it, say it is one to keep an eye on.

    The virus, which the researchers call G4 EA H1N1, can grow and multiply in the cells that line the human airways.

    They found evidence of recent infection starting in people who worked in abattoirs and the swine industry in China.

    Current flu vaccines do not appear to protect against it, although they could be adapted to do so if needed.

    Prof Kin-Chow Chang, who works at Nottingham University in the UK, told the BBC: "Right now we are distracted with coronavirus and rightly so. But we must not lose sight of potentially dangerous new viruses."

    While this new virus is not an immediate problem, he says: "We should not ignore it".

    The scientists write in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences that measures to control the virus in pigs and closely monitor working populations should be swiftly implemented.

    Prof James Wood, Head of the Department of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Cambridge, said the work "comes as a salutary reminder" that we are constantly at risk of new emergence of pathogens, and that farmed animals, with which humans have greater contact than with wildlife, may act as the source for important pandemic viruses.

    Well yeah of course there's another damn disease. The corona bullshit didn't kill or scare enough people and China still has a boner for being the world leader.

    I agree we should nuke those slanty eyed bastards ASAP.

    I found this little tidbit of information on another site.

    Hospital administrators might well want to see COVID-19 attached to a discharge summary or a death certificate. Why? Because if it's a forward, garden-variety pneumonia that a person is admitted to the hospital for – if they're Medicare – typically, the diagnosis-related group lump sum payment would be $5,000. But if it's COVID-19 pneumonia, then it's $13,000, and if that COVID-19 pneumonia patient ends up on a ventilator, it goes up to $39,000.

    Yikes, this brings out the nasty in people. Maybe I should look around the general forum more often to see who to avoid.

    Democrats call for nationwide mask mandate

    Democrats have called on the White House to take a stricter stance in the fight against the novel coronavirus. They are now demanding a nationwide mandate on masks.

    As the pandemic disrupted normalcy across the globe, the national health crisis within the U.S. turned into a political issue. On Sunday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi stated she believes a national mask mandate is “long overdue.”

    “My understanding is that the Centers for Disease Control has recommended the use of masks, but not required it because they don’t want to offend the president,” she said.

    Pelosi has urged the president to act as an example and called on his supporters to do the same.

    Meanwhile, the governor of Washington state has blamed the president for the pandemic becoming political. The Democrat leader recently stressed the importance of masks.

    The debate over mandating masks across the board has become a controversial topic because some believe it violates basic human rights.

    “Where do you derive the authority to regulate human breathing? I ask you this because this is very important. You all are playing doctors and you’re not. God gave us the very breath that we are to breathe. I would also like to know, where do you get the authority to reduce my oxygen?” – Unnamed citizen

    Anti-mask rallies have been held in recent days, where several have congregated to speak out on the issue.

    In Florida, residents have called the mask mandate “the devil’s law.”

    “You literally cannot mandate somebody to wear a mask knowing that that mask is killing people. It literally is killing people. We the people are waking up. We know what citizens’ arrest is, because citizens’ arrests are already happening, okay?” – Unnamed resident

    The Trump administration continues to encourage Americans to adhere to CDC guidelines. Vice President Mike Pence has advised Americans to wear masks when in public and when they are unable to social distance.

    As for a nationwide mandate, Pence has said he believes the severity of the pandemic varies based on area and that the decision should be made on a case-by-case basis.

    “We just believe that what’s most important here is that people listen to the leadership in their state, the leadership in their local community, and adhere to that guidance,” he said. “Whether that has to do with facial coverings, whether it has to do with the size of gatherings.”

    This topic of debate has become increasingly more pressing as multiple states, such as Texas and Florida, have reported upticks in recent days.

    There’s Actually Some Encouraging Covid Data If One Digs Deep Enough
    Posted at 9:06 pm on June 30, 2020 by Sarah Lee

The state Department of Public Health recorded more than 5,000 new cases Tuesday, putting the total number of positive cases at more than 183,000. The state has seen more than 5,500 deaths related to COVID-19. (AP Photo/Jae C. Hong)


    There’s been a great deal of anxiety-inducing news on the coronavirus front since cases began to spike in states such as Florida, Texas, Arizona, Utah, South Carolina, Nevada, Georgia, Missouri, Montana, California, Tennessee, and Oklahoma. Coupling that with news that Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi seeks a nationwide mask mandate (the Trump administration shot that idea down pretty handily), Americans can’t be blamed if they begin to feel it’s stage one all over again. Even the Director of the CDC has gotten in on the panic promotion saying the U.S. has “way too much virus” to control.

    Well try to relax, because there’s actually some good news out there that despite the relative silence from mainstream media outlets. Here’s a few bits to hang onto as we weather the latest push to scare the hell out of us.


    Former New York Times reporter Alex Berenson, who has been something of a bright light in ferreting out the disparate and ever-changing information about COVID-19, posted a fascinating email from an executive at a Texas ER chain explaining what’s happening in Texas. In short: testing is up in younger demographics for a variety of reasons, and hospitals are filling up with people who had delayed treatment for other illnesses during the height of the coronavirus scare. More testing means more cases but, according to what this executive is seeing, a great number of the new cases are very mild.




    Then there’s the fact that new CDC data, as covered here by Clay Travis, indicates that instead of the 2.6 million known coronavirus cases, the number is actually closer to 26 million cases based on new cases and antibody tests. As Travis notes, this has a serious effect on the death (and survival) rate of the disease.

    Why is this CDC finding significant?

    Well, it means nearly one in every ten Americans have already had the coronavirus, which is a fairly gigantic finding. It also means many of these infected people had such mild cases they felt no need to receive treatment. In fact, it probably means the majority of the people who have had the coronavirus in this country never even knew they had it.

    But it also means, and this is perhaps the most significant data point, the coronavirus is far less deadly than we’ve been led to believe.

    In fact, the CDC study suggests the all age death rate from the virus is roughly .5%. Meaning 99.5% of all people infected with the coronavirus, regardless of age, recover. (There are other studies that suggest the .5% death rate is still far too high, but it’s still significant that the virus has a 99.5% recovery rate per the CDC).

    Journalist Jordan Schachtel added his own data point Monday noting that it saw the lowest number of deaths on record since full testing capacity was rolled out.


    Additionally, peer reviewed research papers from JAMA and Thorax are being used together to suggest that most people, should they become infected, will only develop mild symptoms, and that there may be a higher number of people who become infected that show no symptoms at all.

    Early research has shown that most people who contract the new coronavirus develop mild cases of Covid-19, the disease caused by the virus, and, in some instances, individuals infected with the virus don’t experience any symptoms of Covid-19. However, new studies increasingly are suggesting that the number of people who are infected with the new coronavirus but don’t exhibit symptoms of Covid-19 is higher than researchers previously understood.

    Now the idea that more people who are infected never know they have it is, to be sure, a mixed blessing. Certainly those who are most concerned about the spread of the disease believe this is a dangerous data point. But mathematicians from University of Nottingham and University of Stockholm are studying a theory they’ve developed that indicates herd immunity from COVID-19 could be achieved with far fewer infected than originally thought.

    Herd immunity happens when so many people in a community become immune to an infectious disease that is stops the disease from spreading. This happens by people contracting the disease and building up natural immunity and by people receiving a vaccine. When a large percentage of the population becomes immune to a disease, the spread of that disease slows down or stops and the chain of transmission is broken.

    This research takes a new mathematical approach to estimating the herd immunity figure for a population to an infectious disease, such as the current COVID-19 pandemic. The herd immunity level is defined as the fraction of the population that must become immune for disease spreading to decline and stop when all preventive measures, such as social distancing, are lifted. For COVID-19 it is often stated that this is around 60%, a figure derived from the fraction of the population that must be vaccinated (in advance of an epidemic) to prevent a large outbreak.



    Professor Frank Ball from the University of Nottingham participated in the research and explains: “By taking this new mathematical approach to estimating the level for herd immunity to be achieved we found it could potentially be reduced to 43% and that this reduction is mainly due to activity level rather than age structure. The more socially active individuals are then the more likely they are to get infected than less socially active ones, and they are also more likely to infect people if they become infected. Consequently, the herd immunity level is lower when immunity is caused by disease spreading than when immunity comes from vaccination.

    Our findings have potential consequences for the current COVID-19 pandemic and the release of lockdown and suggests that individual variation (e.g. in activity level) is an important feature to include in models that guide policy.”

    This is great news as we race to a vaccination that may or may not work as it means a vaccination — usually thought to be a key ingredient in the development of herd immunity — could take on lesser significance.

    There are reasons to be optimistic. But if you’re looking for them, you may have to dig a bit. And take a break from the evening news

    Bubonic Plague killed as many as half of Europe's population. The result was a significant increase in the standard of living of the survivors. With fewer people applying for jobs, wages rose. With fewer people buying stuff, prices declined.

    I was going through the channels this morning trying to see what was happening in the news.
    Every damn channel I turned to had some yokel telling everyone they had to wear a mask.
    Sort of funny, not a single one of them were wearing a mask.
