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.
Published a new article "The Divine Epistemology of the Christ".
Published a highly-minimalist music player, written in about 100 lines of Ruby. I named it "rum".
Edward Pentin, a well-known consultant on the Roman Catholic Church, is publishing a 100 signatory open letter titled The Voice of Women in Defense of Unborn Babies and in Opposition to Abortion-tainted Vaccines.
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.
Sexual Revolution and the Liberation of Children (archive) - An interview with author Kate Millet by Mark Blasius. A really illuminating article highlighting, among other things, the tendency of male homosexuals towards pedophilia, and feminist tendencies towards sexualization of children.
Terms like "toxic masculinity" and "white fragility" are invented to pathologize the immutable identity of people the woke don't like.
Henry Makow's website - contains a lot of New World Order documentation. Take with a big ol' grain of salt, but Makow is good at referencing and doesn't base his work on self-assertion
Dr. Judith Reisman's website - documents a lot of how academics are pushing sexual degeneracy for political control, including for example the Kinsey Scale's Dr. Kinsey's child molestation protocols
"Bronze Age Pervert" discusses the mythical "alt-right" and deconstructs its existence. BAP is a Nietzschean revivalist at heart; I'm not aligned with him ideologically much at all, but the points here are good.
