The SARS-CoV-2 Delta variant is poised to acquire complete resistance to wild-type spike vaccines - preprint, as discussed on the tin
Here, by using an in vitro cell line, we report that the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein significantly inhibits DNA damage repair, which is required for effective V(D)J recombination in adaptive immunity. Mechanistically, we found that the spike protein localizes in the nucleus and inhibits DNA damage repair by impeding key DNA repair protein BRCA1 and 53BP1 recruitment to the damage site.
Work on and with adenovirus vectors is premised on the unproven claim that these vectors are safe because adenovirus DNA would "not integrate"into the recipient cells’ genomes. There is no solid evidence for this interpretation. Hence, the following synopsis of our work and that of others takes issue with this notion (Doerfler et al., 1984). The problems encountered in gene therapeutic procedures of the past (Samanathan et al, 2020) and presently with adenovirus vector-based SARS-CoV-2 vaccines will require a thorough re-evaluation of the drawbacks that adenovirus vector systems entail.

High frequency of infection of lung cancer patients with the parasite Toxoplasma gondii published in ERJ Open Research. Frequency (n=72) was 100%. MedicalXpress discusses the article.
A cross-sectional cohort study performed on 36,564 subjects (5,087 Toxoplasma free and 741 Toxoplasma infected) showed that infected and noninfected subjects differ in their sexual behavior, fantasies, and preferences when age, health, and the size of the place where they spent childhood were controlled (F(24, 3719) = 2.800, p < .0001). In agreement with our a priori hypothesis, infected subjects are more often aroused by their own fear, danger, and sexual submission although they practice more conventional sexual activities than Toxoplasma-free subjects. We suggest that the later changes can be related to a decrease in the personality trait of novelty seeking in infected subjects, which is potentially a side effect of increased concentration of dopamine in their brain.

Reverse-transcribed SARS-CoV-2 RNA can integrate into the genome of cultured human cells and can be expressed in patient-derived tissues from Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America.
We show here that SARS-CoV-2 RNA can be reverse-transcribed and integrated into the genome of the infected cell and be expressed as chimeric transcripts fusing viral with cellular sequences. Importantly, such chimeric transcripts are detected in patient-derived tissues. Our data suggest that, in some patient tissues, the majority of all viral transcripts are derived from integrated sequences.An angry letter from other scientists tries to cast shade but the authors hold their ground.
Parry et al. state that “SARS-CoV-2 integration into the host genome is unlikely.” Our response is that the “percent of library” calculation is not an estimate of integration frequency, which requires consideration of whole-genome sequencing (WGS) coverage. We identified integration events and observed two to five integrations per 10,000 cells at the current sequencing depth (Table 1). This is similar to the estimated integration frequency of lymphocytic choriomeningitis virus after acute infection (3). “Low frequency” of integration events cannot be interpreted as “unlikely.”

Most trials involve some risk of harm or injury to the participant, although it may not be greater than the risks related to routine medical care or disease progression. (For trials approved by IRBs, the IRB has decided that the risks of participation have been minimized and are reasonable in relation to anticipated benefits.) Many trials require participants to undergo additional procedures, tests, and assessments based on the study protocol. These requirements will be described in the informed consent document.

Worse Than the Disease? Reviewing Some Possible Unintended Consequences of the mRNA Vaccines Against COVID-19 from the International Journal of Vaccine Theory, Practice, and Research. Peer-reviewed. Quoting the abstract:
In this review we first describe the technology underlying these vaccines in detail. We then review both components of and the intended biological response to these vaccines, including production of the spike protein itself, and their potential relationship to a wide range of both acute and long-term induced pathologies, such as blood disorders, neurodegenerative diseases and autoimmune diseases. Among these potential induced pathologies, we discuss the relevance of prion-protein-related amino acid sequences within the spike protein. We also present a brief review of studies supporting the potential for spike protein “shedding”, transmission of the protein from a vaccinated to an unvaccinated person, resulting in symptoms induced in the latter. We finish by addressing a common point of debate, namely, whether or not these vaccines could modify the DNA of those receiving the vaccination. While there are no studies demonstrating definitively that this is happening, we provide a plausible scenario, supported by previously established pathways for transformation and transport of genetic material, whereby injected mRNA could ultimately be incorporated into germ cell DNA for transgenerational transmission. We conclude with our recommendations regarding surveillance that will help to clarify the long-term effects of these experimental drugs and allow us to better assess the true risk/benefit ratio of these novel technologies.

Among SUD patients, the risk for breakthrough infection ranged from 6.8% for tobacco use disorder to 7.8% for cannabis use disorder, all significantly higher than the 3.6% in non-SUD population (p<0.001). Breakthrough infection risk remained significantly higher after controlling for demographics (age, gender, ethnicity) and vaccine types for all SUD subtypes, except for tobacco use disorder, and was highest for cocaine and cannabis use disorders (hazard ratio, HR=2.06, 95% CI: 1.30-3.25 for cocaine; HR=1.92, 95% CI: 1.39-2.66 for cannabis).
"We found that females and people with obesity had greater brain reward activity" after consuming the artificial sweetener, says study author Katie Page, a physician specializing in obesity at the University of Southern California. Both groups also had a reduction in the hormone that inhibits appetite, and they ate more food after they consumed drinks with sucralose, compared with after regular sugar-sweetened drinks. In contrast, the study found males and people of healthy weight did not have an increase in either brain reward activity or hunger response, suggesting they're not affected in the same way.
Increases in COVID-19 are unrelated to levels of vaccination across 68 countries and 2947 counties in the United States - Published in European Journal of Epidemiology.
At the country-level, there appears to be no discernable relationship between percentage of population fully vaccinated and new COVID-19 cases in the last 7 days (Fig. 1). In fact, the trend line suggests a marginally positive association such that countries with higher percentage of population fully vaccinated have higher COVID-19 cases per 1 million people.

The term "free referent" came up in my head the other day. Was searching to try and find a good definition. Didn't really succeed, but I found two papers that use it. Discourse and logical form: pronouns, attention and coherence" and Quantification and definiteness in child grammar. Generally, as I remember it, and as it is used here, it refers to an unbound term that is referred to by another term. Esoteric linguistics stuff... I can't access the Child Grammar article, but the Discourse article is quite interesting.
Traditionally, pronouns are treated as ambiguous between bound and demonstrative uses. Bound uses are non-referential and function as bound variables, and demonstrative uses are referential and take as a semantic value their referent, an object picked out jointly by linguistic meaning and a further cue—an accompanying demonstration, an appropriate and adequately transparent speaker’s intention, or both. In this paper, we challenge tradition and argue that both demonstrative and bound pronouns are dependent on, and co-vary with, antecedent expressions. Moreover, the semantic value of a pronoun is never determined, even partly, by extra-linguistic cues; it is fixed, invariably and unambiguously, by features of its context of use governed entirely by linguistic rules. We exploit the mechanisms of Centering and Coherence theories to develop a precise and general meta-semantics for pronouns, according to which the semantic value of a pronoun is determined by what is at the center of attention in a coherent discourse.
There's also Description Grammar for Discourse, a thesis worth exploring.
National Geographic article discussing the implications of leaky viruses: increased virulence. Cites "Imperfect Vaccination Can Enhance the Transmission of Highly Virulent Pathogens", published on PLOS Biology, explaining the same.
Here we show experimentally that immunization of chickens against Marek's disease virus enhances the fitness of more virulent strains, making it possible for hyperpathogenic strains to transmit. Immunity elicited by direct vaccination or by maternal vaccination prolongs host survival but does not prevent infection, viral replication or transmission, thus extending the infectious periods of strains otherwise too lethal to persist. Our data show that anti-disease vaccines that do not prevent transmission can create conditions that promote the emergence of pathogen strains that cause more severe disease in unvaccinated hosts.

Problems in the “Evidence” of “Evidence-Based Medicine” by Alvan RFeinstein, MD and Ralph I Horwitz, MD
The proposed practice of “evidence-based medicine,” which calls for careful clinical judgment in evaluating the “best available evidence,” should be differentiated from the special collection of data regarded as suitable evidence. Although the proposed practice does not seem new, the new collection of “best available” information has major constraints for the care of individual patients.
Derived almost exclusively from randomized trials and meta-analyses, the data do not include many types of treatments or patients seen in clinical practice; and the results show comparative efficacy of treatment for an “average” randomized patient, not for pertinent subgroups formed by such cogent clinical features as severity of symptoms, illness, co-morbidity, and other clinical nuances. The intention-to-treat analyses do not reflect important post-randomization events leading to altered treatment; and the results seldom provide suitable background data when therapy is given prophylactically rather than remedially, or when therapeutic advantages are equivocal. Randomized trial information is also seldom available for issues in etiology, diagnosis, and prognosis, and for clinical decisions that depend on pathophysiologic changes, psychosocial factors and support, personal preferences of patients, and strategies for giving comfort and reassurance.
The laudable goal of making clinical decisions based on evidence can be impaired by the restricted quality and scope of what is collected as “best available evidence.” The authoritative aura given to the collection, however, may lead to major abuses that produce inappropriate guidelines or doctrinaire dogmas for clinical practice.

The cause of the production of enhancing antibodies in some uninfected individuals is unknown; certain pathogens with proteins similar to the NTD of SARS-CoV-2 may be involved in the production of enhancing antibodies in some uninfected individuals. There is a possibility that the production of enhancing antibodies might be boosted by SARS-CoV-2 infection or vaccination.
Article discusses documentation of function of enhancing antibodies in the Chinavirus. This study provides evidence that some people produce antibodies to the Chinavirus that cause worse symptoms on infection. There is no data as to whether vaccines cause the same dysfunctional antibody. This article is good evidence that we need to be very careful when inducing antibody production with coronaviruses in general; Emergency Use Authorization is not indicative of safety!

There's an article for me to write here, adapting some of the material, explaining the intricacies of "ethnos", as it is a complicated term that doesn't have an easy English translation, but Nelte's article here captures what I believe is the accurate sense of the term, via the Septuagint. The elder Greek meaning doesn't reflect the Biblical use, and means roughly "multitude" with some sense of "alienness": it is used in some non-human contexts, for example.

Carbon dioxide: The good news by Indur Goklany, with a foreward by Freeman Dyson, which states:
Indur Goklany has assembled a massive collection of evidence to demonstrate two facts. First, the non-climatic effects of carbon dioxide are dominant over the climatic effects and are overwhelmingly beneficial. Second, the climatic effects observed in the real world are much less damaging than the effects predicted by the climate models, and have also been frequently beneficial. I am hoping that the scientists and politicians who have been blindly demonizing carbon dioxide for 37 years will one day open their eyes and look at the evidence.

A new research article, Polθ reverse transcribes RNA and promotes RNA-templated DNA repair, is calling into question the commonly-accepted dogma underpinning the mRNA vaccine implementation. The typical belief is that "mRNA doesn't influence DNA". Popular science commentary, however, agrees that this is unusual. SciTechDaily reports:
Cells contain machinery that duplicates DNA into a new set that goes into a newly formed cell. That same class of machines, called polymerases, also build RNA messages, which are like notes copied from the central DNA repository of recipes, so they can be read more efficiently into proteins. But polymerases were thought to only work in one direction DNA into DNA or RNA. This prevents RNA messages from being rewritten back into the master recipe book of genomic DNA. Now, Thomas Jefferson University researchers provide the first evidence that RNA segments can be written back into DNA, which potentially challenges the central dogma in biology and could have wide implications affecting many fields of biology.

The Imaginary Climate Crisis: How can we Change the Message? A talk by Richard Lindzen. The concluding paragraph follows:
Our task is to show the relevant people the overall stupidity of this issue rather than punching away at details. In focusing on the details, we are merely trying to showcase our own specialties. My use of the word ‘merely’ is probably unjustified; the details can, in fact, be scientifically important. However, we are not considering either our target audience or the intrinsic absurdity of the issue. It is likely that we have to capitalize on the insecurity of the educated elite and make them look silly instead of superior and virtuous. We must remember that they are impervious to real science unless it is reduced to their level. When it is reduced to their level, it is imperative that we, at least, retain veracity. Whether we are capable of effectively doing this is an open question.

The temperature–CO2 climate connection: an epistemological reappraisal of ice-core messages. A peer reviewed evaluation of the ice-core data on CO2.
Because CO2 emissions are considered to be the single most important factor currently affecting climate, unprecedented efforts are being formulated to achieve carbon-free societies within a few decades. In view of the major social, environmental, political and economic issues raised by such a transition, two points deserve special attention. The first concerns geochemical evidence available for the greenhouse effects of CO2 (and of CH4 as well) over periods of time long enough to encompass great climate cycles. The second deals with the actual heuristic value of climate simulations, which appears to be generally acknowledged without having undergone real in-depth analyses. Both points will, thus, be reviewed critically from an epistemological standpoint in the present study. In fact, the approach followed will be justified by serious weaknesses pointed out on both counts, which will, in particular, illustrate once more why models that are now so extensively relied on in many fields of science and in public policies can lack any real demonstrative value.

I've had a thought to actually critically evaluating the paper myself, because the references are still valid, and the argumentation is clear. This does appear as though sociopolitical pressure was used to bring the journal to heel. The journal talks about redesigning its "editorial and review workflow" over it. I've listed many data on this site documenting masks (and if you want more, I've got a bunch of unqualified URLs in the source for this page), so it's evident that this move is not coming out of a clear scientific basis.

Saturation of the Infrared Absorption by Carbon Dioxide in the Atmosphere by Dieter Schildknecht - a 2020 paper critically examining claims of "greenhouse" feedback from a physical perspective.
Based on new radiative transfer numerical evaluations, we reconsider an argument presented by Schack in 1972 that says that saturation of the absorption of infrared radiation by carbon dioxide in the atmosphere sets in as soon as the relative concentration of carbon dioxide exceeds a lower limit of approximately 300 ppm. We provide a concise brief and explicit representation of the greenhouse effect of the earth's atmosphere. We find an equilibrium climate sensitivity (temperature increase ΔT due to doubling of atmospheric CO2 concentration) of ΔT≃0.50C. We elaborate on the consistency of these results on ΔT with results observationally obtained by satellite-based measurements of short-time radiation-flux versus surface-temperature changes.

On April 20, all following Members of the European Parliament were served with notices of liability, advising that they may be held personally liable for harm and death caused by implementation of a Digital Green Certificate (Vaccine Passport), to be voted upon in the European Parliament on April 28, 2021.
COVID-19 RNA Based Vaccines and the Risk of Prion Disease by J. Bart Classen, MD of Classen Immunotherapies, Inc. Quoth he:
The current analysis indicates Pfizer's RNA based COVID-19 vaccine contains many of these RNA sequences that have been shown to have high affinity for TDP-43 or FUS and have the potential to induce chronic degenerative neurological diseases.
Classen is fascinating. He runs the website vaccines.net which performs independent vaccine safety research, and has an extensive list of peer-reviewed publications. The homepage of vaccines.net proclaims boldly: "We are concerned that the current outbreak of COVID-19 is actually a bioweapon attack and may be linked to the US anthrax attack of 2001, which originated from the US army base Fort Detrick."
From 2012, a A letter from 49 former NASA scientists and astronauts (archive) rejecting the hypothesis that CO2 is implicated in climate change.
The unbridled advocacy of CO2 being the major cause of climate change is unbecoming of NASA’s history of making an objective assessment of all available scientific data prior to making decisions or public statements.
From the CDC's publication Emerging Infectious Diseases, a metastudy from the University of Hong Kong entitled Nonpharmaceutical Measures for Pandemic Influenza in Nonhealthcare Settings—Personal Protective and Environmental Measures, which is a metastudy surveying RCTs of mask use and other preventative measures. As pertaining to mask use, it concludes:
Our systematic review found no significant effect of face masks on transmission of laboratory-confirmed influenza.
La Griffe du Lion, a collection of excellent essays about various controversial topics.
Another day, another scientific article highlighting the antiscientific hypocrisy of the coronavirus extremists in government. Facemasks in the COVID-19 era: A health hypothesis This one has an exceptionally pointed conclusion.
The existing scientific evidences challenge the safety and efficacy of wearing facemask as preventive intervention for COVID-19. The data suggest that both medical and non-medical facemasks are ineffective to block human-to-human transmission of viral and infectious disease such SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19, supporting against the usage of facemasks. Wearing facemasks has been demonstrated to have substantial adverse physiological and psychological effects. These include hypoxia, hypercapnia, shortness of breath, increased acidity and toxicity, activation of fear and stress response, rise in stress hormones, immunosuppression, fatigue, headaches, decline in cognitive performance, predisposition for viral and infectious illnesses, chronic stress, anxiety and depression. Long-term consequences of wearing facemask can cause health deterioration, developing and progression of chronic diseases and premature death. Governments, policy makers and health organizations should utilize prosper and scientific evidence-based approach with respect to wearing facemasks, when the latter is considered as preventive intervention for public health.
Found a great site cutting through miles of coronavirus misinformation with hard facts entitled No Jab For Me.
Here's a wild pre-print titled Evidence for a Connection Between COVID-19 and Exposure to Radiofrequency Radiation from Wireless Telecommunications Including Microwaves and Millimeter Waves. It's just a literature review, and the one author, Beverly Rubik, really likes some rather controversial topics, but the concerns raised are more legitimate than controversial. Dr. Rubik has a Ph. D. in Biophysics from UCa. The other author, Robert R Brown, received his MD from U of Miami. The preview does not render properly in my browser. Clicking "Download preprint" resolves this.
John P.A. Ioannidis of the Stanford Department of Medicine has published a now peer-reviewed paper entitled Reconciling estimates of global spread and infection fatality rates of COVID-19: an overview of systematic evaluations in which he estimates the infection fatality rate of the global coronavirus to be 0.15%. This is 6% of the estimated infection fatality rate of the 1918 "Spanish" flu. Restated and inverted, the Spanish flu was 17 times more deadly! The coronavirus epidemic is half as deadly as malaria by these numbers. The Coronavirus is only slightly more deadly than two notable Asian flu epidemics, one from around '57, and the other (mainly Hong Kong) around '68.
Calgary preacher Artur Pawlowski shooed out the Covid Gestapo from his church yesterday when they rudely interrupted his service. "Come back with a warrant" appears to work. The official video is here. Artur's street ministry can be found at streetchurch.ca, and his church, The Cave of Adullam, has a Facebook page where the video of the event may be previewed. An earlier copy of the video was released here by some Anon mirroring content from the Facebook page. God bless you, brother Artur!
My player "rum" got renamed to "rumu", because "rum" was already taken at rubygems.org. Additionally, it now has native PulseAudio support, which has been partitioned off into a library: pulseaudio_simple_ffi. Both are pushed to rubygems.org, which means you can install rumu by running
gem install rumu on a proper install of Ruby.

An aggregator of studies regarding human biodiversity. (archive) A wonderful remedy to the pseudoscience of "Critical Race Theory". There's some atheist nonsense in here too, to be fair. There's definitely an opening for Christ-centred human biodiversity analysis. I'll get there eventually, I reckon.
Another anti-mask literature review, this one written by dentists for dentists, then pulled due to obvious political pressure. The retraction can be viewed here, but I archived someone else's PDF copy of the original article.
Pathophysiological Basis and Rationale for Early Outpatient Treatment of SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) Infection by Peter A. McCullough, MD, MPH -- The American Journal of Medicine is now publishing a protocol for HCQ treatment (as of Jan 1, 2021).
The earliest clearly-defined HCQ treatment protocol I discovered was Dr. Zev Zelenko's. He is heavily censored by media agents. There is an article here aggregating appearances of his work. (archive) Naturally, the promotion of HCQ in this form occurs after election fraud installed Quid Pro Joe in the White house. Newsweek insists on falsely debunking the reality that, yes, the AJM did publish an article recommending HCQ, deceptively interviewing the editor-in-chief to "establish" that it's not the journal recommending the protocol, it's the author of the article being published by the journal recommending it. This is just semantic nonsense intended to cast fear, uncertainty, and doubt.
I will be filing a credit card chargeback with a certain "local" (I guess management has moved to the coast) computer shop selling "refurbished" computers that aren't even updated with current anti-Spectre, etc. firmwares. Management insists more current firmware is not stable. The manufacturer insists otherwise, but my experience is that management might not be far off there. While I recommended the shop for years, I will no longer due to a bad experience. The shop should be avoided because while their machines are cheap, it appears that they cannot be modernized, and cannot be saved from the many hardware vulnerabilities that have popped up in the last few years. Plus, the shop is no longer local, management has migrated. Finally, their staff is horrible and repeatedly lied to my face. They could have saved hours of time if they'd listened to what I'd told them, but at this point, I'm quite content to cost them time. My current recommended computer shop in Prince George would be DDR2. Cantin Brothers also offers some support.
...insulin resistance was an independent predictor of all clinical events, using both multiple logistic regression and Cox’s proportional hazards analysis. The fact that an age-related clinical event developed in approximately 1 out of 3 healthy individuals in the upper tertile of insulin resistance at baseline, followed for an average of 6 yr, whereas no clinical events were observed in the most insulin-sensitive tertile, should serve as a strong stimulus to further efforts to define the role of insulin resistance in the genesis of age-related diseases.

Did a bit of a dive on the intersection of the topics "Gog and Magog" and "Khazaria" for a friend. Apparently, it's a popular topic in muslim circles. There is a very well-cited article from apfn.org titled "Gog, Magog, and the Kingdom of the Khazars". It only exists in archives now, and was split across two parts: Part 1 and Part 2. Steven Anderson preached on the topic of Gog and Magog; the Khazaria angle chiefly reflects Arthur Koestler's "The Thirteenth Tribe". archive.org stores a "Gog and Magog Research Pack" which is very comprehensive.

Let’s say you were a person who didn’t care at all about the Constitution, and you wanted to take America back to the past and establish a new order of hereditary nobility. What could be more deliciously reactionary than that? Real, live nobles, walking around on the street. So let’s see what it would take to make it happen.

Facebook post: On one hand, I don't agree with forced mask usage. On the other, masks are useful tools, and mitigate disease risk. On the third hand, public support for mask use is undoing authoritarian policies aimed at forcing people to abandon their anonymity in public spaces. Keep them optional but advised and I'll lend my support, but the second it becomes mandatory, I'll resist. This parallels my position on vaccines, only masks have no potential for introducing an acute concentration of toxins into the bloodstream, so they're strictly lower on the risk spectrum.
We report a time course of SARS-CoV-2 RNA concentrations in primary sewage sludge during the Spring COVID-19 outbreak in a northeastern U.S. metropolitan area. SARS-CoV-2 RNA was detected in all environmental samples and, when adjusted for the time lag, the virus RNA concentrations were highly correlated with the COVID-19 epidemiological curve (R2=0.99) and local hospital admissions (R2=0.99). SARS-CoV-2 RNA concentrations were a seven-day leading indicator ahead of compiled COVID-19 testing data and led local hospital admissions data by three days.

Evidence for the zinc-hydroxychloroquine treatment.
After adjusting for the time at which zinc sulfate was added to our protocol, an increased frequency of being discharged home (OR 1.53, 95% CI 1.12-2.09) reduction in mortality or transfer to hospice remained significant (OR 0.449, 95% CI 0.271-0.744). Conclusion: This study provides the first in vivo evidence that zinc sulfate in combination with hydroxychloroquine may play a role in therapeutic management for COVID-19."Hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin plus zinc vs hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin alone: outcomes in hospitalized COVID-19 patients"
Added "Log" section. Reorganized backgrounds.
