Posted in: Virus immunity may disappear within months: study See in context

It looks like these "experts" are trying to push onto us the vaccine. I am no immunology expert, but according to the textbook I use for my lectures, it is typical for antibodies to decrease greatly after about a month, but that the body retains memory B cells (they can last a lifetime) that respond rapidly to a second infection to produce large quantities of the same antibodies.

About the vaccine, I recommend you check this out, especially the part about vaccine research for the previous SARS COV(1):


I certainly will not take the vaccine (if ever they make one).

The lock-downs and other restrictions are not about public health. Time to move on already.

Posted in: Under the emerging impact of global warming, there is an increasing risk or potential that rainfall amounts could be at a level that we haven’t experienced in the past. So I think that citizens must realize that their previous experience may no longer work. We have to act even earlier or faster than what we have experienced in the past. See in context

I wonder when people will stop screaming that stupid and misleading "Some scientists made a mistake about ice ages 50 years ago therefore all scientists are wrong about everything" line whenever they want to derail a discussion about climate change.

Who is using that line? There are now scientists warning us of global cooling.

Posted in: It would not be a violation of Japan's pacifist Constitution to mount a defensive first strike against an enemy launch pad or base preparing a missile attack against Japanese territory. See in context

Defense has always been used to rationalize starting a war.

But I don't see why only Japan has a pacifist constitution; I can think of many other countries that are much more deserving of one.

No, because I feel fine.

Who goes to a host/hostess club during a pandemic? Use some common sense people!!

The same people who go to host/hostess clubs when there isn't a pandemic; i.e., losers.

Monty, I understand how you feel, but I hope you stick around...

No need to shut down as long as the hospitals are not overwhelmed.

If you are too scared to go out, stay home and let the rest of us live our lives.

Posted in: Tokyo reports 75 coronavirus infections; drops below 100 for 1st time in 7 days See in context

Just follow the basic rules: Wear mask, wash hands, use sanitizers, keep social distance where it is possible and everything will be fine!

Yes, and I would just add: stay as healthy as possible so that if you do catch it you can fight it off with little suffering. This includes increasing your vitamin D (sun, food, supplements), eating right, exercising, and getting plenty of sleep.

Posted in: Some people argue that mandating anyone to wear face masks during the pandemic is a violation of human rights. Do you agree? See in context

If you can be 100% certain that only you and your immediate family are put at risk of contracting Covid and suffering from it, then by all means, go maskless

The same could have been said at any time over the past century regarding the flu and other infectious agents.

Covid19 is not as deadly as initially claimed; and there are pros and cons to wearing a mask. Each person should do as they see fit.

Posted in: U.S. athletes, Carlos call on IOC to end protest ban See in context

For decades athletes have had reasons to protest that were much more valid than the current ones backed by a Marxist communist agenda.

If they remove the ban, we can expect a surge in anti-Israel and anti-US protests.

All democratic countries and societies need to ensure all of the citizens enjoy the same opportunities, rights, protections and benefits.

Opportunities yes. But you can't force equal outcomes.

Posted in: George Soros conspiracy theories surge as protests sweep U.S. See in context

The MSM spent 3 years peddling Russia conspiracy theories.

Not a conspiracy theory.

I agree it's not a conspiracy theory; it's pure propaganda. A theory should at least be backed up by some evidence...

The MSM did put all they had into that Russia collusion propaganda, and then they suddenly went silent. Why isn't there any detailed AP article like the one above describing that hoax?

I think the Trump admin is investigating the Antifa and BLM backing, and I do suspect it will lead to Soros. I guess that is why they are publishing these articles...
