Scientists: Vaccination Before EVERY Holiday May Be Needed

Scientists at Oxford University have suggested that people may need to have a coronavirus vaccination not once, not twice, but EVERY time they want to travel out of their home country.

The scientists published a report in the Royal Society Journal last week that acknowledged there is little data on how efficient or long lasting the current vaccines are, and so it is likely that countries will require a recent vaccination.

Having endless vaccinations when there is no indication of how effective they are, or what long term side effects there may be sounds absolutely mental, but that is what is being suggested.

World Economic Forum shouted down on Twitter for suggesting Covid-19 lockdowns ‘improved cities all over the world’

The World Economic Forum, globalist champion of the Great Reset, has ruffled feathers online with an “out-of-touch” tweet how Covid-19 lockdowns are “quietly improving cities” across the globe.

A video accompanying the Friday tweet by the WEF shows images of deserted streets, grounded airliners and idle factories, then notes record declines in air pollution and a drop in carbon emissions. It later shows busy, smog-choked highways and notes that “the drop won't slow climate change unless we lock in emissions cuts.”

3rd time’s the charm? Pfizer/BioNTech to study if THREE doses of Covid-19 vaccine can boost immunity against variants

Pfizer and BioNTech will launch a new trial of the Covid-19 vaccine they jointly developed to see if a third dose can act as an effective booster against emerging variants of the virus, they said in a statement on Thursday.

The study will use participants from a current US trial, who will be given a booster shot of the current vaccine between six to 12 months after receiving their initial two-dose regimen.

According to the statement, 144 Phase 1 participants across two age groups will receive a third dose – people aged 18-55 and 65-85.

The companies also said that, as originally planned, all of the trial participants will be monitored for up to two years.

Queen Elizabeth Urges Britons to ‘Think About Other People’ Before Refusing COVID-19 Vaccine

Queen Elizabeth recently spoke on a video conference with health professionals organizing the UK’s COVID-19 vaccination program in a bid to promote the state’s ongoing efforts to curb the spread of the deadly disease. The UK currently ranks fifth in the world for having the highest COVID-19 case count and death toll, according to Worldometer.

Queen Elizabeth joined a group of health officials on a live-streamed conference on Thursday, and encouraged Britons to think about their fellow neighbor before outright refusing to vaccinate against the respiratory disease.

Wanted: Ad seeks well-paid PR strategist for New York governor amid nursing home deaths and harassment scandals

Andrew Cuomo's office has reportedly posted an ad seeking a communications director to handle “messaging” for the state’s many scandals, from nursing home death coverups to sexual harassment allegations to endless corruption.
“The State of New York's Executive Chamber has an immediate opening for a top level executive to lead messaging for the Office of the Governor. The position reports to the Communications Director,” the listing, reposted on Wednesday, revealed.

Hot off the Press: Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla admits Israel is the 'world's lab.’ 

If Israelis are confused by the fact that their government treats them like laboratory pets, if they wonder why their freedom to travel, to socialise or even earn a living have evaporated, Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla produced a genuine answer yesterday. In an interview on NBC Bourla said:

"I believe Israel has become the world's lab right now because they are using only our vaccine at this state and they have vaccinated a very big part of their population, so we can study both economy and health indices."

I have no issue with medical experiments involving humans if the participants are fully aware of all possible circumstances and considerations involved in their consent. This didn’t happen in Israel. By means of ‘green passports,’ the government practically threatens to penalise anyone reluctant to participate in a ‘lab’ experiment for a giant pharmaceutical company with a very problematic record.

Mafia-type gangs, not foreign powers, hacked French hospitals, says minister, as some doctors continue to work with pen and paper

The French minister for digital transformation has said mafia-type gangs from Eastern Europe are probably behind a spate of attacks on French hospitals and laboratories during the pandemic, rather than foreign state actors.

“Concerning the hospitals, in all likelihood, it is not foreign powers, but rather Mafia-type organizations – often situated in eastern countries but not just limited to there – who are looking for money,” Cedric O, the secretary of state for digital transformation, told France 2 television on Thursday.

The minister said that the gangs normally attempt to steal confidential data with the aim of ransoming the organization in question, adding that the situation had stabilized following a spate of attacks earlier in the year.

While many hospitals and healthcare organizations have returned to normal, Cedric O claimed that hospitals in Dax and Villefranche-sur-Saône were still working with pen and paper after their computer systems were hit.

Pfizer is threatening governments around the world and demanding RANSOM to protect against future vaccine injury lawsuits

Pfizer has lobbied entire legislative bodies to indemnify vaccine makers from future vaccine injury lawsuits. In a contract with the government of Brazil, Pfizer made RANSOM demands, requiring Brazil to waive the sovereignty of its assets abroad to cover for Pfizer’s negligence. Pfizer demanded that Brazil create a guarantee fund and deposit that money in a foreign bank account to cover for all future vaccine injury liabilities. Brazil’s Health Ministry repudiated Pfizer’s demands and made them public on January 23, 2021. In the contract, Pfizer demanded that the laws of Brazil NOT be applied to Pfizer, to exempt the company from all civil liability.

Some countries have readily complied with Pfizer, granting the vaccine maker legal immunity from civil and criminal lawsuits when their experimental vaccine protocol harms human health and takes people’s lives. Other countries have taken a more judicial approach, rejecting Pfizer’s call for absolute indemnity.

NASA's Perseverance rover watched as its sky crane crashed on Mars (photo)

The Perseverance Mars rover's "sky crane" descent stage made the ultimate sacrifice last week, and we now have a photo to memorialize the flying robot's heroic death.

The rocket-powered sky crane lowered the car-sized Perseverance rover to the floor of Mars' Jezero Crater on cables last Thursday (Feb. 18), bringing the rover's harrowing "seven minutes of terror" entry, descent and landing (EDL) sequence to a successful end.

Just after the rover's wheels touched down, the sky crane flew off to crash-land intentionally a safe distance away — and Perseverance snapped a photo of the impact's immediate aftermath, NASA announced Wednesday (Feb. 24).

Ivermectin is effective for COVID-19: real-time meta analysis of 42 studies

•100% of the 42 studies to date report positive effects. Random effects meta-analysis for early treatment and pooled effects shows a reduction of 83%, RR 0.17 [0.11-0.28]. Prophylactic use shows a reduction of 89%, RR 0.11 [0.05-0.23]. Mortality results show 75% lower mortality, RR 0.25 [0.14-0.44] for all treatment delays, and 86% lower, RR 0.14 [0.03-0.62] for early treatment.
•100% of the 21 Randomized Controlled Trials (RCTs) report positive effects, with an estimated reduction of 70%, RR 0.30 [0.19-0.49].

China's new-generation spacecraft takes its maiden flight as the country moves one step closer towards landing a man on the moon

China has successfully launched its largest carrier rocket with a new-generation spacecraft today, marking a significant progress for the country towards landing a man on the moon.

The Long March-5B carrier rocket took off at 6pm local time at the Wenchang Space Launch Center in the southern island province of Hainan, state broadcaster CCTV announced on Tuesday.

The spacecraft carried by the rocket is expected to one day transport astronauts to a space station that China plans to complete by 2022 - and eventually to the moon.

Beyond Oil: How UAE's HOPE Mars Mission Is Breaking The Arab World Out Of Its 'Crisis Of Scarcity'

The Emiratis understand that their economy, primarily based in oil revenue, though presently lucrative, is a short-term prosperity. A future that is dependent on oil is unstable and unkind, it is not a reliable resource for an advancing economy.

Something truly remarkable happened on Feb. 9th, 2021, which I fear has not been fully comprehended by most of the Western hemisphere in terms of its massive implications as a game-changer in geopolitics for the Middle East.

Here in the West, we have become accustomed to our jaded denigration of space exploration. It appears to many, that space exploration is just a charade or if of real consequence, is understood as an extension of geopolitics, the imperialistic conquest and militarisation of space.

It is for this very reason that the UAE’s story for why they decided to create their Hope (or Amal in Arabic) mission to Mars is so very striking against this politically cynical foreground.

There is a sense in the air that the pandemic is winding down, and the toxic culture of division, fear, and hatred along with it.

Cases are down dramatically.

Deaths too.

Hospitalizations are no longer irregular.

Restrictions are being repealed.

UK Government: Over 240 Deaths, 8 Miscarriages And Over 100,000 Side Effects Reported Shortly After Receiving The COVID Experimental MRNA Injection

A U.K. government vaccine safety review has revealed that 244 people, including 8 unborn babies, have died in Britain shortly after receiving one of two coronavirus vaccines.

The government has said that it does not believe the inoculations are responsible.

An extensive report produced by the U.K. government today has detailed all the suspected side effects [over 100,000 in total], including death, reported by medical staff or the people who received at least one Covid-19 vaccine between early December 2020 and January 31, 2021 [February not included].

The two vaccines currently in use in the U.K. are the Pfizer/BioNTech and the Oxford University/AstraZeneca. They were authorized by the country’s Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA).

Belgians warned to shun govt-distributed masks as they may contain TOXIC chemicals

Millions of cloth facemasks distributed by the federal government in Belgium in 2020 may contain toxic chemicals according to a newly-leaked report from Sciensano, the Belgian Institute for Public Health.

The Belgian government purchased 15 million Avrox masks and dispensed them through private pharmacies to its 11.5 million citizens. However, due to additional mask sales and delivery efforts by local authorities and private companies, only an estimated third of the federally-distributed masks were actually used.

The masks were produced in Asia by Luxembourg firm Avrox and now an investigation is underway following complaints from rival Belgian mass manufacturers about the possible contamination of the Avrox masks with toxic nanoparticles of silver and with titanium dioxide, used to dye the masks white.

If these toxic nanoparticles are indeed found to be present, then Belgians who wore the government-issued masks may suffer respiratory tract damage.

Historic Portuguese Appeals Court ruling on PCR test Feb 24 by Jon Rappoport

In prior articles on the PCR, I’ve exposed a triangle of factors that surrounds COVID testing in the US.

One: Anthony Fauci readily asserts that running the test at 35 cycles or higher yields useless and meaningless results. [3]

Two: However, the FDA and the CDC recommend performing the test at up to 40 cycles. Therefore, US labs will comply—turning out millions of tests that are useless, BUT WHICH FALSELY STATE THE PATIENT IS INFECTED. [4] [4a] [4b]

Three: And the NY Times reports that labs in the US never reveal, to doctor or patient, how many cycles they are deploying. [5]

That’s a recipe for cooking up a false pandemic.

Yes, the rushed-to-market Covid “spike protein” vaccine means an unpredictable, genetically engineered and mutated virus fragment is being injected into your blood

Clinical trial geeks posing as journalists manipulate the language around the dirty and experimental methods used today to manufacture vaccines. Online, all the vaccine hucksters are trying to convince everyone that this sped-up hustle to produce a Covid-19 vaccine is still ‘safe and efficacious,’ and not to worry your little head a bit about the fact that it takes 7 to 10 years to even come close to developing a vaccine that works (even though they still have horrific side effects).

A rushed vaccine, especially during a pandemic (as they call it), should make everyone feel very nervous, and since it’s genetically modified and mRNA manipulated, even more so. Plus, not only is the recruitment for clinical trials very poor when rushed, safety itself flies out the window. That’s when the efficacy lies ensue, and the clinical trial geeks lie through their teeth on their shill-laden websites and blogs – funded and scripted by none other than Big Pharma.

Male Infertility Threatening ‘Future of Human Race,’ Says Author of New Book

Scientists are witnessing an alarming trend: Men’s sperm counts are down, testosterone levels have plunged and erectile dysfunction is increasing. Male infertility is on the rise — and exposure to synthetic chemicals known as phthalates could be to blame, according to fertility scientist Shanna Swan, Ph.D., author of the new book, “Count Down: How Our Modern World Is Threatening Sperm Counts, Altering Male and Female Reproductive Development and Imperiling the Future of the Human Race.”

Citing Swan’s book, the New York Post reported that the global fertility rate has dropped 50% between 1960 and 2016, with the U.S. birth rate 16% below where it needs to be to sustain the population.

Human guinea pigs for Big Pharma and rotten states. The sickening experiments fuelling vaccine scepticism among people of colour

There’s much talk in the news of a low take-up in Covid vaccinations among people of colour in the US, UK, Africa and beyond. But it’s a scepticism born of horrific and shameful acts by governments and Big Pharma.

Well done, world. Less than a year into a global pandemic we now have quite the menu of vaccines to choose from, with hundreds of millions of doses already administered (albeit with around 75 percent of those jabs in just 10 countries).

The rapid development of the drugs has been hailed as one of the few successes of an otherwise – let’s be kind – clumsy global response to the coronavirus. Under-fire governments who supported this development, usually through large pharmaceutical companies or ‘Big Pharma’, have gladly welcomed such rare praise.

But there is still a hitch. For vaccines to work, enough people have to take them and, putting aside the inequitable distribution, the biggest hurdle here is scepticism.

Mexico to Ban Glyphosate, GM Corn Presidential Decree Comes Despite Intense Pressure from Industry, U.S. Authorities

Mexican president Andrés Manuel López Obrador quietly rocked the agribusiness world with his New Year’s Eve decree to phase out use of the herbicide glyphosate and the cultivation of genetically modified corn. His administration sent an even stronger aftershock two weeks later, clarifying that the government would also phase out GM corn imports in three years and the ban would include not just corn for human consumption but yellow corn destined primarily for livestock. Under NAFTA, the United States has seen a 400% increase in corn exports to Mexico, the vast majority genetically modified yellow dent corn.

The bold policy moves fulfill a campaign promise by Mexico’s populist president, whose agricultural policies have begun to favor Mexican producers, particularly small-scale farmers, and protect consumers alarmed by the rise of obesity and chronic diseases associated with high-fat, high-sugar processed foods.

Scientists Discover 'All-Natural' COVID Treatment That Can Prevent 'Cytokine Storm' In Severe Patients

A team of scientists from Israel and Iceland has published a new report showing that an extraction of spirulina algae has the potential to reduce the severity of COVID-19 in advanced cases.

The research, first published in a peer-reviewed journal called Marine Biotechnology, found that an extract of photosynthetically manipulated Spirulina is 70% effective in inhibiting the release of the cytokine TNF-a, a small signaling protein used by the immune system.

According to the Jerusalem Post, the research was conducted in a MIGAL laboratory in northern Israel with algae grown and cultivated in Iceland by the Israeli company VAXA. VAXA received funding from the European Union to explore and develop "natural" treatments for coronavirus.

Drought In Taiwan Just Turned The Semi Shortage "Crisis" To "Critical"

Taiwan is suffering the "island's worst drought in decades", according to Nikkei. And this is terrible news for semiconductor manufacturers, who are being forced to make cuts on water usage while at the same time desperately trying to scramble and play catch-up with a drought of their own.

Taiwan is now planning to "further tighten water use in several cities that are home to a cluster of important manufacturers," including plants in Taoyuan, Taichung, Hsinchu and Miaoli. They are going to be asked to cut consumption by up to 11%. Chiayi and Tainan, where Taiwan Semiconductor is based, will be asked to take a 7% cut.

All of these cuts come on top of another 7% cut already put into effect last month.

What the latest Johnson & Johnson COVID vaccine data really means

Some have raised concerns that one of Johnson & Johnson's previously reported vaccine data points -- a 66% global efficacy in preventing moderately symptomatic disease -- doesn't seem as impressive as figures reported by Pfizer and Moderna, which exceeded 90% efficacy at preventing symptomatic COVID-19. But experts are quick to note that it may not be the best comparison: The Pfizer and Moderna clinical trials didn't take into account new variants and still had 100% effectiveness against hospitalizations and deaths.

"This is a very different trial than the trials that were done last fall," said Dr. Dan Barouch, director of the Center for Virology and Vaccine Research at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and a lead researcher for the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. "We live in a much more complicated pandemic today."

Dinosaurs WERE wiped out by an asteroid: Dust discovered in the Chicxulub crater confirms that a deadly space rock was to blame for the animals' demise 66 million years ago

Asteroid dust found beneath an impact crater confirms a leading theory that it was a space rock that killed the dinosaurs and 75% of life on Earth 66 million years ago.

Researchers from the University of Texas at Austin studied 900 metres of rock core samples from below the seafloor under the Chicxulub crater in the Gulf of Mexico.

They found evidence of asteroid dust within the samples, a discovery the team say is the 'final proof' dinosaurs were wiped out by a city sized space rock.

Democrats Accept 2 of 286 Amendments Sought by Republicans for $1.9 Trillion COVID-19 Stimulus Bill

Republicans have criticized Democrats for continuing to push their pandemic stimulus package while accepting little to no Republican input. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) said Wednesday out of 286 amendments proposed by Republicans for the $1.9 trillion spending package, only two were accepted.

“Republicans offered 286 amendments to President Biden’s massive $1.9 TRILLION spending blowout. Democrats accepted 2 of them. So much for Biden’s calls for ‘unity,'” McCarthy said in a statement.

On Feb. 19, Democrats unveiled the full text of a 591-page bill (pdf) titled the “American Rescue Plan Act of 2021.”

House Republicans held a press conference on Wednesday in which they voiced their opposition to the Democrats’ “rescue” package that includes many items that have little to do with pandemic relief.

Equity Is a Just a Nice Way of Saying "White People Last": Black, Hispanic Seniors in Virginia Prioritized Over White Octogenarians

Point of fact: this writer is 100 percent against the Covid-19 vaccination (if you want to get it, by all means go ahead) and believes people should be living their lives without any fear of COVID-19 and the entire nation should be opened up. Dave Portnoy is a hero for his actions to help out small businesses ravaged by the asinine shutdown and criminal charges should be filed against every elected official advocating continued shutdowns.

It brings a smile to my face seeing other people not wearing masks in defiance of the tyranny enacted by people believing our nation should shutdown because of a disease almost exclusively impacting the elderly and those with co-morbidities.

We will look back with intense animosity on those who advocated this insanity and cost people a year of their life (hurting families in the process), along with the incalculable opportunity costs gone forever because of an extreme overreaction to a virus primarily impacting those 60 years-old or greater.

Yes, the rushed-to-market Covid “spike protein” vaccine means an unpredictable, genetically engineered and mutated virus fragment is being injected into your blood

Have no doubts, the Covid vaccine series is highly experimental, dangerous and unprecedented. This viral vector approach tricks your cells like a Trojan horse to let recombinant DNA inside, where permanent damage is done and can never be undone.

You are NOT ‘anti-science’ to reject this. You are not ‘anti-vax’ if you do not want this. You are not a conspiracy theorist to deny genetically mutated viruses from not only entering your body through an invasive, unnatural way, but to deny mRNA technology from tricking your immune system into accepting new DNA restructuring.

If you’ve been vaccinated with a Covid vaccine, then your body is now creating foreign proteins, and that creation is going unregulated, unchecked, and can be manipulated by more vaccines. This is not GMO scaremongering. It’s common sense and science. It’s the science the vaccine manufacturers never explain in true terms.

Is Switzerland Sliding into Dictatorship? Social Coercion, Privileges to Those Who Accept the Covid Vaccine

A secret paper from the Swiss Federal Council (Swiss Executive) was leaked to the Swiss Newspaper “Der Blick” divulging that the Federal Council is considering granting owners of restaurants, theatres, cinemas, and more, as well as private event organizers, the right to allow access to those people only, who have had their corona virus shots.

In addition to the Blick, Swiss Radio and Television (SRG) repeated this news item in the morning of 23 February. SRG, the Swiss fear-inducing propaganda broadcasting system, also linked so-called “corona deniers” to alleged “anti-Semitism”, referring to an article in Swissinfo, “Covid Pandemic Fans Flames of anti-Semitism in Switzerland”. Anti-Semitism has often been used to intimidate free opinions that run counter the official narrative.

However, taking a look through the fact sheets for recipients and caregivers regarding the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna experimental coronavirus vaccines, available at the website of the US government’s Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, you find a very different representation.

By Putting Big Pharma’s Patents before Patients, Doctors Will Further Erode Trust in Experts

I have spent the past several years on my blog trying to highlight one thing above all others: that the institutions we were raised to regard as authoritative are undeserving of our blind trust.

It is not just that expert institutions have been captured wholesale by corporate elites over the past 40 years and that, as a result, knowledge, experience and expertise have been sidelined in favour of elite interests – though that is undoubtedly true. The problem runs deeper: these institutions were rarely as competent or as authoritative as we fondly remember them being. They always served elite interests.

What has changed most are our perceptions of institutions that were once beloved or trusted. It is we who have changed more than the institutions. That is because we now have far more sources – good and bad alike – than ever before against which we can judge the assertions of those who claim to speak with authority.

Twenty Reasons Mandatory Face Masks are Unsafe, Ineffective and Immoral

Nine Potential and Proven Dangers to Muzzling Yourself
1. Cavities: New York dentists are reporting that half their patients are suffering decaying teeth, receding gum lines and seriously sour breath from wearing masks. “We’re seeing inflammation in people’s gums that have been healthy forever, and cavities in people who have never had them before,” Dr. Rob Ramondi told FOX News.

2. Facial Deformities: Masking children triggers mouth breathing which as been shown to cause “long, narrow faces, narrow mouths, high palatal vaults, dental malocclusion, gummy smiles, and many other unattractive facial features,” according to the Journal of General Dentistry.

What’s Not Being Said About the Pfizer Coronavirus Vaccine. “Human Guinea Pigs”?

Bill Gates is actively financing and promoting new untested vaccines supposed to keep us at least somewhat safe from a ‘ghastly” death from the novel coronavirus and supposedly allow us to resume somewhat “normal” lives. The Pharma giant Pfizer has now announced what they claim were spectacular results in initial human tests. They use an experimental technology known as gene editing, specifically mRNA gene-editing, something never before used in vaccines. Before we rush to get jabbed in hopes of some immunity, we should know more about the radical experimental technology and its lack of precision.

The financial world went ballistic on November 9 when the pharma giant Pfizer and its German partner, BioNTech, announced in a company press release that it had developed a vaccine for Covid19 that was “90%” effective.

Mandatory mRNA Vaccination and PCR Testing Potentially Illegal

Much has been written on this topic and it would be difficult to summarize it all in one short article. Policies differ from place to place and so is social dynamic. I have been following the “pandemic”, the stats, the restrictions, the related requirements, and the official policies in several countries but here I would like to focus on Canada and the province of Ontario.

In Ontario, the pandemic crisis is managed by the Liberal federal government and the Conservative provincial government. Unfortunately, there is little, if any, difference between these governments, when it comes to the “pandemic” policies. New Democrats don’t stay far behind the two. All three are chirping in the same key. I am aware of some individual MPs and MPPs, as well as some specialists in related fields, who privately are critical of the official narrative but are afraid of political and professional consequences, if they take a stand publicly.

The 28 congressional signers, led by Rep. Scott Perry, R-Pa., write:

The NIH, unfortunately, has played a major role in supporting [the Wuhan Institute of Virology] and this treacherous research and the promotion of spurious claims dismissing the NIH-funded lab’s potential role in the COVID-19 pandemic.

Putin: Information Campaign Exists Abroad to Undermine Russia's Achievements in Medicine

Since Russia registered the world's first COVID vaccine in August 2020, the West has repeatedly tried to spread disinformation about the vaccine.

There is an information campaign abroad aimed at undermining Russia's achievements in medical sciences, President Vladimir Putin said on Wednesday.

"We are...facing the so-called Russia containment policy. Actually, this has long been a well-known fact. I am not referring to competition, which is natural in international relations, I am talking about a consistent aggressive policy aimed at hampering our development, bringing it to a halt, ... provoking domestic instability and undermining values that unite the Russian society," Putin told the Russian Federal Security Service.

Lets Us Put an End to the Corona Pandemic Hoax: We Are Victims and Perpetrators at the Same Time

“There exists an unfounded public hysteria driven by the media and politicians. It is outrageous, this is the biggest hoax ever perpetrated on an unsuspecting society.”

This is what top Canadian pathologist and virologist Dr Roger Hodkinson told Canadian government officials about Corona back in late November 2020 during a Zoom conference call (1). And he is right! We can only stop this pandemic hoax and give our children a future worth living if we realise that we are both victims and perpetrators.

Dirty Secrets

The figures have been released as a propaganda exercise to justify vaxing children, but were subject to a re-analysis by the French newspaper FranceSoir:

A front-page article appeared in the FranceSoir newspaper about findings on the Nakim website regarding what some experts are calling “the high mortality caused by the vaccine.”

The gist of the re-analysis is that since starting mass vaccinations in December, the death rate in Israel for over-60s has gone up by 40 times and for younger people 260 times.

Essentially, of the 5,351 total deaths from Covid in Israel, 2337 happened during the two months following the first vaccinations.

Whitetail deer with bizarre condition that covers both its eyeballs with HAIR is put down by officials in Tennessee after the buck was discovered bleeding and disorientated

A whitetail deer with hair growing out of its eyeballs was discovered wandering in a Tennessee suburb.

Residents of Farragut, a suburb about 20 minutes outside Knoxville, reported the buck to authorities, telling them it was circling the street, with visible bleeding, no awareness of the people around it, and 'something on its eyes.'

Concerned the deer had chronic wasting disease, a contagious and fatal prion disease, agents with Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency (TWRA) had to put it down.

They then discovered the buck had hairy tumors, known as dermoids, completely covering both corneas and rendering it virtually blind.

Tim Zook, who worked as a X-ray technician, began complaining of abdominal pain and trouble breathing about two and a half hours after being vaccinated at the South Coast Global Medical Center in Santa Ana on Jan. 5.1 2

Zook was walked to the emergency room by his co-workers. There, a series of tests where conducted and congestive heart failure and COVID-19 were ruled out.

“It was presenting as COVID but the test keep coming back negative,” Zook’s wife, Rochelle, said. “They tested him again. No congestive heart failure.”1 2

When she was notified of her husband’s condition, Mrs. Zook reportedly texted her husband, “Should I be worried?”

Zook texted back, “No, absolutely not.”

Trust Stamp is a vaccination based digital identity program funded by Bill Gates and implemented by Mastercard and GAVI, that will soon link your biometric digital identity to your vaccination records. The program said to “evolve as you evolve” is part of the Global War on Cash and has the potential dual use for the purposes of surveillance and “predictive policing” based on your vaccination history. Those who may not wish to be vaccinated may be locked out of the system based on their trust score.

Is the "Variant" Being Used to Scare People Into Getting Vaccinated??

In a recent front-page article, the New York Times reported that the new mutated version of the Coronavirus was likely to be more contagious or lethal than the original infection. According to the Times, this new iteration of the infection could resist conventional treatments and force lockdown nations to extend the timeline for lifting restrictions. But given that “daily Covid infections have declined by 77 percent since January” and the virus appears to be ‘on its way out’, the report in the Times seems particularly suspicious. Is this new mutation, called the “variant”, really as deadly as it’s cracked up to be or is the media conjuring up another Covid hobgoblin to scare the public into getting vaccinated? Check out this excerpt from the article:

CJ Hopkins: The Vaccine (Dis)Information War

So, good news, folks! It appears that GloboCap’s Genetic Modification Division has come up with a miracle vaccine for Covid! It’s an absolutely safe, non-experimental, messenger-RNA vaccine that teaches your cells to produce a protein that triggers an immune response, just like your body’s immune-system response, only better, because it’s made by corporations!

OK, technically, it hasn’t been approved for use - that process normally takes several years - so I guess it’s slightly “experimental,” but the US Food and Drug Administration and the European Medicines Agency have issued “Emergency Use Authorizations,” and it has been “tested extensively for safety and effectiveness,” according to Facebook’s anonymous “fact checkers,” so there’s absolutely nothing to worry about.

Case Study Shows Cannabis Led To Remarkable Improvement In Childhood Autism Symptoms

An extremely promising case study was recently published in the Journal of Medical Case Reports illustrating the positive effects of cannabis extract and its association with improved autism related behavioral symptoms.

According to the authors, “the pharmacological treatment for autism spectrum disorders is often poorly tolerated and has traditionally targeted associated conditions, with limited benefit for the core social deficits. We describe the novel use of a cannabidiol-based extract that incidentally improved core social deficits and overall functioning in a patient with autism spectrum disorder, at a lower dose than has been previously reported in autism spectrum disorder.”

Following Lawsuit, CDC Removes Claim “Vaccines Do Not Cause Autism” from its Website

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is facing a lawsuit from the Informed Consent Action Network (ICAN). Del Bigtree, the founder of ICAN has decided to urge the federal agency to remove the statement on its website claiming vaccination never causes autism in children.

According to Bigtree, the statement was taken down from the CDC website on Aug. 27, 2020, and added back again shortly after ICAN issued a press release about the change on Jan. 25.

Bigtree claims the statement is inaccurate as no studies conducted by the organization prove that vaccines given to infants do not cause autism.

The United States of America has reported a sudden increase in children suffering from a neurological developmental disorder.

Bigtree claims that the neurological problem diagnosed within six months to one year of the baby’s birth has a link to vaccination provided immediately after birth.

Synthetic mRNA Covid vaccines: A Risk-Benefit Analysis

Amidst the plethora of Covid-related issues, the Covid injections are the most imminent. Two formulations have received interim approval from the FDA, and Health Canada: Pfizer/BioNtech and Moderna.

Both these injections are employing the same technology, synthetic gene therapy (SGT), which is being dispensed to the populace for the first time in human history.

Medications are given to sick people to treat disease. Vaccines are given to healthy people to prevent an infection. Therefore consideration of risk-benefit analysis is paramount.

Covid is the umbrella label for PCR “positive” people regardless of clinical presentation. Most are “asymptomatic,”some have generic cold/flu symptoms, and a few present with moderate or severe respiratory distress. Unfortunately, the PCR assays being used for diagnosis, are not fit for purpose. Most PCR assays are constructed based on the German Drosten et al. protocol.

75% Of US Troops Refused Taking COVID-19 Vaccine Says Pentagon Report

According to a Pentagon report almost 75% of US troops refused taking the COVID-19 vaccine. Addressing the allegation of a cover-up, the spokesperson for the agency, John Kirby informed the news outlets about the reason for the lack of exact data.

75% Of US Troops Against Getting COVID-19 Vaccine Says Pentagon Report
According to the latest reports issued by the Pentagon, one-third of the US troops have refused to take the vaccination to shield themselves from the coronavirus.

The statement issued by the Pentagon on 17th Feb 2021 points to the low acceptance rate of the virus.

Major General Jeff Taliaferro, the top official in the US military has indicated the two-third acceptance rate of the virus.

British MP calls lockdowns ‘extended exercise in almost … deliberate cruelty’

U.K. Conservative MP Sir Charles Walker derided the government for its continued lockdown, calling it “an extended exercise in almost studied and deliberate cruelty.”

Walker, once the chairman of the anti-lockdown 1922 committee of Conservative backbenchers, made his comments following government guidance not to book summer holidays. The government argued it cannot guarantee that restrictions will be lifted by the time summer comes.

“It is just not acceptable behavior,” Walker lamented on the BBC’s Radio 4 program. “People need to see their children, they need to see their parents, the people that they love, they need to have something to look forward to.”

“[We] are conducting a massive experiment in creating high levels of anxiety in a population and it’s just not acceptable.”

Killing the cure: The strange war against hydroxychloroquine

The UK has had the ignominious triumph of having one of the world’s highest death rates. Some see the solution in continuing lockdowns, more testing and ultimately the vaccine. We argue that the solution lies in medical treatments, such as hydroxychloroquine or ivermectin rather than in vaccination. But hydroxychloroquine was ruled out as a potential treatment for covid19 quite early on. This is despite the fact that, when used correctly, it is a highly efficacious treatment. Had it been readily available as a prophylactic or early stage treatment we would need neither lockdowns nor vaccinations and dramatically fewer people would have died. However this didn’t happen. Here we intend to explore why.

Bowling for Pfizer: Who’s Behind the BioNTech Vaccine?

At the end of November, it was revealed that the Oxford Vaccine Group had conducted the clinical trial showing its vaccine for COVID-19 had an efficacy of 90 per cent exclusively on volunteers aged 55 and below, thereby excluding precisely the demographic most at risk from the disease. Shares in its business partner, the British-Swedish multinational pharmaceutical company AstraZeneca, dropped 6 per cent in one week, and the race to be the first to release a vaccine on the world was back on. This has since been won by the US multinational Pfizer, by revenue the second largest pharmaceutical company in the world. Like GlaxoSmithKline, Johnson & Johnson, Moderna, Roche, Sanofi and the other 23 companies working on coronavirus treatments and vaccines, Pfizer had begun tests back in May, in their case on a vaccine being developed by the German biotechnology company, BioNTech. In July, Pfizer’s CEO, Dr.

Biden Caught In Another Big Lie – Claims More Deaths from COVID than WWI, WWII and Vietnam Wars Combined – Simply Not True

Joe Biden can’t help himself. He lies about everything. For Pete’s sake, he’s playing President after stealing the election after all. But yesterday he lied again and he simply didn’t have to.

Biden put on a strange press conference yesterday at the White House. He claimed that there are now more than 500,000 deaths due to the China coronavirus (COVID) in the US since the virus was first released by China. It’s doubtful that he ever mentioned China. But what he did say is that there are now more than 500,000 reported deaths due to COVID.

We’ve refuted these numbers over the past year. In one post we pointed out that the CDC claimed that only 6% of the deaths counted as COVID deaths were related to the China coronavirus only. The rest were deaths with COVID, not caused only by COVID. This post woke up America to the bogus reporting of the China coronavirus in our country:

UK: Health Authorities Announce Not a Single Case of Flu Detected This Year

Health authorities in England have announced that not a single case of influenza has been detected this year, with one professor suggesting that mask wearing should be kept in place during winter to drive down flu deaths to “zero.”

“The social restrictions brought in to curb transmission of coronavirus, combined with an increased uptake of flu vaccine, have both been credited with driving down infections,” reports the Independent.

Of the 685,243 samples tested at the PHE’s laboratories since the first week of January, not a single flu infection was discovered.

Professor Christina Pagel went on to suggest that some of the measures brought in to fight coronavirus could be kept in place to combat flu infections.

Asserting that “we can reduce flu deaths to pretty much zero,” Pagel said it is “worth encouraging people to wear masks” on public transport and in other busy environments every winter.

Great News, America: Cheese Isn’t Bad for You

CHEESE IS AMONG the ultimate guilty pleasures. It’s gooey. It’s fatty. It’s delicious. It just has to be bad for you, right?

Wrong. A large body of research suggests that cheese’s reputation as a fattening, heart-imperiling food is undeserved. When it comes to weight and other key health outcomes (and setting aside the issue of lactose intolerance, with apologies), cheese is neutral at worst, and possibly even good for you. And yet that research doesn’t seem to have broken through into common knowledge. If you Google “cheese,” the top result under “people also ask” is the ungrammatical query “Why cheese is bad for you?” Now, if you’re the type of person who’s thinking, “What’s the big deal? I eat what I like, in moderation, and don’t worry about calories”—congratulations, I’m happy for you, we have lots of great articles about science and tech you might enjoy. If, on the other hand, you’re like me and worry that your diet is making you gradually fatter, keep reading.

STUDY REVEALS THE SOURCE OF ONE OF THE MOST ELUSIVE PARTICLE OF THE UNIVERSE

SCIENTISTS HAVE, for the first time, gathered observational evidence for elusive, high-energy particles that come from some of the most violent events in the universe.

In a study published Monday in the journal Nature Astronomy, astronomers gathered the first evidence tracing tiny, subatomic particles called neutrinos to a black hole tearing a star apart.

Did Neanderthals Have the Capacity for Verbal Language?

The Neanderthal of popular imagination is a hideous, ape-like being, lumbering around with his or her crude spear. Rarely do we picture this person, or pre-person, engaged in any kind of conversation, beyond the occasional grunt-off over a spoiled piece of meat. But—depending on which archaeologist/linguist you happen to ask—the truth is somewhat different. Some researchers, of course, are more convinced than others; for this week’s Giz Asks, we present a survey on the subject.

A spacecraft named for 'Hidden Figures' mathematician Katherine Johnson has arrived on the International Space Station

A spacecraft named for the famed NASA mathematician Katherine Johnson has arrived at the International Space Station with about 8,000 pounds of cargo in tow.

The S.S. Katherine Johnson, a Northrop Grumman Cygnus resupply spacecraft, launched on Saturday from a NASA facility in Virginia and made it to the space station early Monday morning. It carries a massive amount of science and research, crew supplies and vehicle hardware that will assist researchers there in numerous investigations.

The spacecraft will support experiments that are exploring treatments to restore vision to those with retinal degenerative diseases, why astronauts experience muscle weakening in microgravity and how astronauts sleep in space, among others. It also brings advanced computing to the space station and upgrades to clean air and water systems for the crew there.

This 29-year-old cancer survivor is set to be the youngest American ever in space

Hayley Arceneaux, a 29-year-old cancer survivor and physician assistant at St. Jude children's hospital, got an out-of-the-blue question from her employer last month: Would she like to go to space?

"I remember laughing," Arceneaux told CNN Business. "And then, I just said — 'Yes! Yes, like, put my name down.'"

Arceneaux will be one of four crew members on Inspiration 4, the first spaceflight to take a group composed entirely of civilians — not professional astronauts — on a multi-day journey to orbit the Earth. It's slated to take off in October 2021. Arceneaux will be joined by billionaire and Shift4 Payments CEO Jared Isaacman, who is funding the mission and plans to use the event to raise more than $200 million for St. Jude's research.

Before last month, Arceneaux said she didn't know who Isaacman was.

Reality bites: Could Jurassic Park actually happen?

Don’t pretend you’ve never thought about it. Yes, yes – there’s the odd teensy downside to populating an island with once-extinct reptiles. Sure, the T rex turns out to show a disregard for road safety. And velociraptors’ approach to hide and seek is frankly unsportsmanlike. But the majestic song of the brachiosaurus! The incredible dino-flocks! The glistening magnificence of Jeff Goldblum’s chest rug! Could Jurassic Park happen in real life?

Back in 1993, it seemed like it. Newsweek ran an article attesting to the scientific plausibility of Jurassic Park, pointing to the fact that – during filming – two Berkeley scientists announced that they had cloned 40m-year-old bee DNA after finding the insect preserved in amber. “This movie depends on credibility,” Spielberg told Newsweek. “The credibility of the premise – that dinosaurs could come back to life through cloning – is what allowed the movie to be made.”

Million-Year-Old DNA Rewrites Mammoths' Evolutionary Tree 

ANCIENT DNA HAS revolutionized how we understand human evolution, revealing how populations moved and interacted and introducing us to relatives like the Denisovans, a "ghost lineage" that we wouldn't realize existed if it weren't for discovering their DNA. But humans aren't the only ones who have left DNA behind in their bones, and the same analyses that worked for humans can work for any other group of species.

Today, the mammoths take their turn in the spotlight, helped by what appears to be the oldest DNA ever sequenced. DNA from three ancient molars, one likely to be over a million years old, has revealed that there is a ghost lineage of mammoths that interbred with distant relatives to produce the North American mammoth population.

Antarctic Stunner: Mysterious Creatures Discovered Under a Half Mile of Ice

Bivouacked in the middle of the Filchner-Ronne Ice Shelf—a five-hour flight from the nearest Antarctic station—nothing comes easy. Even though it was the southern summer, geologist James Smith of the British Antarctic Survey endured nearly three months of freezing temperatures, sleeping in a tent, and eating dehydrated food. The science itself was a hassle: To study the history of the floating shelf, he needed seafloor sediment, which was locked under a half mile of ice.

To get to it, Smith and his colleagues had to melt 20 tons of snow to create 20,000 liters of hot water, which they then pumped through a pipe lowered down a borehole. It took them 20 hours to melt through the ice inch by inch, finally piercing through the shelf.

Next, they lowered an instrument to collect the sediment, along with a GoPro camera. But the collector came back empty. They tried once more. Still empty. Again, nothing comes easy here: Each round trip of the instrument took an hour.

SCIENTISTS DEBUNK A LONG-HELD THEORY ABOUT DIETING

WHEN IT COMES TO DIETING, research shows the majority of people will regain some – if not most – of the weight they’ve lost. While there are many reasons why this weight regain may happen, some popular claims online are that it’s because dieting permanently wrecks your metabolism. But while it’s true that dieting slows your metabolism, it also improves your metabolism in many positive ways.

When we talk about metabolism, we’re typically referring to your metabolic rate. This is the number of calories your body burns at rest. Of course, the more activity we do, the more calories we burn. In order to lose weight through dieting, you need to consume fewer calories than you’re using. This forces the body to use its energy stores – like fat – to meet the shortfall. Your metabolic rate will also change as a result.

Once He Steps Down From Amazon, Jeff Bezos Will be Able to Focus his Energy on Blue Origin

When it comes to the private aerospace sector (aka. NewSpace), some names stand out from the rest. The most obvious of these is SpaceX (the brainchild of Elon Musk and the leading source of innovation in commercial space) and the United Launch Alliance (ULA), a joint venture between Boeing and Lockheed Martin. But what of Blue Origin, the private aerospace company created by Jeff Bezos in 2000?

In recent years, Blue Origin has fallen behind the competition and missed out on several billion dollars worth of contracts. But with Bezos stepping down as CEO of Amazon, industry sources have indicated that this could change soon (according to Eric M. Johnson at Reuters). With all of the opportunities available for commercial space, Bezos is now in a position to take a more hands-on role as the company faces a most pivotal year.

MARS MAY LOOK LIKE AN ALIEN WASTELAND, BUT WE NOW HAVE MORE EVIDENCE IT COULD HAVE ONCE BEEN ANOTHER EARTH

There is a reason Perseverance landed where it did, and that reason goes back at least 3.5 billion years.

Early Mars is thought to have been Earthlike before solar radiation and cosmic other forces killed its atmosphere. This explains why the rover that has now gone viral in the Twitterverse and just about everywhere else touched down in Jezero Crater, which is thought to have once been a huge lake that could have also been crawling with microbial life. Scientists have now found evidence that Mars went through the same phase as Earth before both planets got their atmospheres — something that has not been proven until now.

The 'ZeroCovid' Movement: Cult Dressed As Science

This past year has given rise to some strange and novel methods of disease containment, including lockdowns and mask mandates. It is unsurprising that the natural next step in this progression has been the development of a movement known as “ZeroCovid.” Its growing influence is, perhaps, predictable given that for nearly a year we have been inundated by the views of so-called experts seeking to legitimize their myopic worldview that public health is determined solely by prevention of Covid-19.

Rather than acknowledge to a weary public that their approach has been a failure, they are doubling down and attempting to save their reputations by claiming that the problem is not that lockdowns do not work, but that they have not gone far enough.

Whistleblower Video Footage of Forced COVID Vaccines in German Nursing Homes Goes Public – Attorney: “We’re Dealing with Homicide, Maybe Even Murder”

Earlier this week we published the English translation of a video in German that Attorney Reiner Fuellmich published with a whistleblower who works in a nursing home where several residents were injected with the experimental COVID mRNA shots against their will, and where many of them died a short time later.

Since that interview was published, other whistleblowers in Germany who work in nursing homes have also stepped forward, some with video footage showing residents being held down and vaccinated against their wish.

France considers slowing vaccine rollout for hospital staff, with many unable to work following jab

The AstraZeneca experimental COVID-19 vaccine currently being given to health workers in France has caused so many side-effects that the French vaccination task force (Conseil d’orientation de la stratégie vaccinale) has recommended “a staggering of the vaccination schedule for people working in the same care unit” as well as “the systematic intake of paracetamol just before the injection and in the two following days.”

The vaccine was developed by Oxford University together with the British-Swedish pharmaceutical company AstraZeneca by cultivating the weakened SARS-CoV-2 virus in the HEK-293 cell line derived from the kidney of an aborted baby. According to the Oxford Vaccine Centre, these weakened viruses “are purified several times to remove the cell culture material,” adding that “this makes it unlikely that any human material remains in the final vaccine.” “Unlikely”, it is worth noting, does not mean “impossible.”

Russian Scientists Figure Out How to Fight Salmonella With Probiotics

Scientists at Don State Technical University (DSTU), as part of an international research team, have proven the effectiveness of Bacillus subtilis and Bacillus amyloliquefaciens probiotics against Salmonella bacteria.

According to research, the study will make it possible to develop a new method of preventing salmonellosis in birds and humans. The results are published in the Frontiers in Microbiology journal.

The research team included: student at the School of Environmental and Biological Sciences at Rutgers University Mahtab H. Tazehabadi; Professor in the Department of Biotechnology at Diyala University Ammar Algburi; Senior and Chief Researcher at the Laboratory of New Biologics at DSTU Vladimir Chistyakov; Head of the Laboratory of Experimental Mutagenesis at SFedU Evgenia Pestnova; and PhD student at the Department of Food Science at Rutgers University Richard Weeks.

Italy: Dozens of Teachers Sick After Receiving Coronavirus Vaccine

Dozens of Italian teachers called in sick Monday after getting inoculated with the AstraZeneca vaccine against the coronavirus over the weekend in Treviso, northern Italy, local media report.

Students in two area middle schools were sent home an hour earlier than usual due to insufficient teaching staff. At the Duca degli Abruzzi high school, 15 teachers out of 130 were absent, complaining of fever, malaise, and pain in the bones.

In a local primary school, San Domenico Savio, two out of three teachers called in sick with similar complaints of aggravated side effects from the vaccine that had left them incapacitated.

Now there is talk of some schools being forced to close for lack of teachers, the Tribuna di Treviso reports Monday, since “dozens and dozens” of local teachers find themselves unable to report for work.

COVID-19 Vaccine To Be Tested on 6-Year-Olds

As of February 4, 2021, the U.S. Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) had received 12,697 injury reports and 653 deaths following COVID-19 vaccination.1

Of the cases reported between December 14, 2020, and February 4, 2021, 3.69% were life threatening and the number of deaths account for 5.14% of the total reports. The Pfizer vaccine accounted for 58% of deaths; Moderna’s accounted for 41%.

What’s more, when you look at vaccine-related deaths between January 2020 and January 2021, you find that COVID-19 vaccines account for a staggering 70% of the annual vaccine deaths, and that’s while having been available for less than two months. The first doses of Pfizer vaccine were given in mid-December 2020,2 while Moderna’s vaccine rolled out during the last week of December 2020.3

Jumping The COVID Vaccination Line: The Next Casualty Of Common-Sense

The list of COVID missteps, misguided policies and outright failures will be long when all is said and done on this pandemic. An abject failure to protect retirement homes. Kids shut out of schools for nearly a year. Businesses shut down by executive fiat. The imposition of a one-size-fits-all policy for an entire state. The Illinois legislature’s absolute abdication of setting COVID policy.

Add to that the line jumping for COVID vaccines.

The state’s current vaccination category, 1B, includes the 1.9 millions over the age of 65, as well as the 1.3 million younger people who are first-responders or “essential workers” such as teachers, grocery store workers and transit workers. To date, about 150,000 Illinoisans aged 65 and over have been fully vaccinated, while nearly 390,000 residents aged 16-64 are already inoculated.

Covid-19: Former Israeli minister urges denial of vaccine to Palestinians in Gaza

Former Israeli justice minister Ayelet Shaked called on Saturday for Israel to prevent Palestinians in the besieged Gaza Strip from receiving the Russian coronavirus vaccine.

Hamas holds the bodies of two Israeli soldiers killed during the Israeli military operation launched on the Gaza Strip in 2014, and it captured another two Israelis in September 2014 and another in 2015.

One of the first known black holes is more massive than once thought

Astronomers might need to adjust their expectations for black holes. According to the New York Times, an international research team has determined that Cygnus X-1, one of the first discovered black holes, is considerably more massive than once thought. The binary-system based hole was originally pegged at 'just' 15 solar masses, but is now believed to be 21 solar masses.

That may not sound like much when supermassive black holes are equivalent to millions or even billions of solar masses, but it's enough to throw off existing models. A black hole that massive can't have formed in the Milky Way based on past estimates of lost stellar mass — scientists might need to rethink their calculations for those losses. It's no longer all that certain how Cygnus-X1 became a black hole.

Just Some of the Planets That TESS Has Found Nearby

Ever since NASA’s Kepler Space Telescope was launched in 2009, there has an explosion in the study of the extrasolar planets. With the retirement of Kepler in 2018, it has fallen to missions like the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) to pick up where its predecessor left off. Using observations from TESS, an international team of astronomers recently discovered three exoplanets orbiting a young Sun-like star named TOI 451.

The research was led by Elisabeth R. Newton, an assistant professor of physics and astronomy at Dartmouth College. She was joined by researchers from NASA JPL, NASA Goddard, NASA Ames, the NASA Exoplanet Science Institute, the SETI Institute, the Max-Planck-Institute for Astronomy, the Kavli Institute for Astrophysics and Space Research, and multiple universities and observatories.

Apophis: Doomsday Asteroid, or Just a Passing Space Rock?

The asteroid Apophis sits atop a shortlist of potentially dangerous objects that could one day hit Earth. And in March, the aircraft carrier-sized asteroid will make its final close path to Earth before 2029, a year when astronomers once wondered if it would strike our planet. We now know Apophis won't hit Earth anytime soon, but the upcoming flyby will still provide a relatively rare opportunity to study the space rock up close.

As the asteroid draws near, it will also make a fortuitous pass in front of a relatively bright star, letting amateur astronomers get in on the action. On Sunday, February 21, at around 11:50 P.M. Central Time, Apophis will move across the face of a distant star, creating what astronomers call an occultation. It’s like a miniature version of what happens when Earth’s Moon eclipses the Sun. Such occultations are a great chance to learn more about the size, shape and composition of planetary bodies.

New research suggests a polar flip could be catastrophic

Disaster movies have shown us what Hollywood thinks might happen if Earth’s poles were to suddenly flip, but the reality of the situation would likely be much different. We don’t know for sure how daily life would be affected if our planet’s magnetic poles suddenly went wonky, but scientists are constantly looking for evidence of past polar movements in order to get a better idea of what we should expect.

A new study published in Science offers us some useful information thanks to one extremely old tree. The tree, which was still growing when the most recent magnetic pole flip occurred some 42,000 years ago hints at dramatic and possibly catastrophic changes that took place in the atmosphere and on the surface of our planet.

When 60 Minutes’ Hysteria Nearly Shot Down a NASA Mission to Saturn

In 1997, while waiting at Cape Canaveral for liftoff, the Cassini mission was beset suddenly by political protest. Cassini carried three radioisotope thermoelectric generators, which were powered by the decay of plutonium 238. The plutonium wasn’t of the Back to the Future variety—a disquieting drop of Scary Substance Indeed into a homemade flux capacitor—but rather was stored in a ceramic form, wrapped in iridium, and caked in graphite. It could not corrode, or be obliterated by heat, or vaporize, or disintegrate as an aerosol, or dissolve in water. It was made to withstand not only the explosion of the rocket carrying it, but even a catastrophic reentry into Earth’s atmosphere. Because it couldn’t vaporize, in a disaster situation, no one would inadvertently breathe it in and develop superpowers or extra appendages. In fact, it was designed so that you could even eat the stuff. The human body could not absorb it.
