Post Date: 2020-05-21 22:20:14 by Deckard
Dr. Anthony Fauci, whose expert advice to President Trump has resulted in the complete shutdown of the greatest economic engine in world history, has known since 2005 that chloroquine is an effective inhibitor of coronaviruses. How did he know this? Because of research done by the National Institutes of Health, of which he is the director. In connection with the SARS outbreak caused by a coronavirus dubbed SARS- CoV the NIH researched chloroquine and concluded that it was effective at stopping the SARS coronavirus in its tracks. The COVID-19 bug is likewise a coronavirus, labeled SARS-CoV-2. While not exactly the same virus as SARS-CoV-1, it is genetically related ...

Jordan Peterson's all-meat diet. Alex Jones' diet supplements. Ben Carson's product plugs during the 2015 presidential debates. All of these have one thing in common Yesterday President Trump told White House reporters that he is taking the anti-malarial drug hydroxychloroquine, as well as zinc and the antibiotic azithromycin to protect against Covid-19. Trump, along with many on the Fox News network have been pushing hydroxychloroquine as a miracle cure for coronavirus, even though there is no evidence it is effective.

Seven of Nine just keeps getting hotter
Post Date: 2020-05-09 14:14:56 by Willie Green
When Seven of Nine, Tertiary Adjunct of Unimatrix Zero One, first appears she's nothing like the smoking hot Betty we've come to know and love. She's a ghostly pale member of the Borg who speaks, steps, and thinks in unison with her people. In her first encounter with the crew of the Voyager, her cube makes a tenuous treaty with the Federation ship, only to have the entire cube decimated by Species 8472, which is another story for another day. The result of that destruction, though, is that Seven of Nine is abandoned aboard Voyager. Stripped of the bulk of her cybernetic Borg implants, she becomes a member of the Voyager crew, which is on a 70-year mission to return to Earth ...
The psychology behind why some people won't wear masks
Post Date: 2020-05-06 15:23:37 by Gatlin
The psychology behind why some people won't wear masks Most Americans have never had to wear a mask for their health before, let alone while they shop for groceries or go for a run. So, even as businesses or states increasingly require them, rebellion is natural -- to a degree, says Dr. David Aronoff, director of Vanderbilt University Medical Center's Division of Infectious Diseases and professor of medicine. But he urges Americans to think of the mask guidance not as forced conformity, but as a necessary act of solidarity: Wearing a cloth mask could stop seemingly healthy people from infecting others with coronavirus if they're asymptomatic. Coronavirus, face masks and ...

Why Some People Are Able to Stay Sharp Past Age 100 Neuroscientists in Australia recently investigated the brain characteristics of dementia-free centenarians (95103 years old) using resting-state fMRI neuroimaging. Their research question: "Is there something special about [centenarians'] brain functional connectivity that helps them preserve cognitive function into the eleventh decade of life?" The researchers found that people over age 95 without dementia tend to have stronger "left brain-right brain" functional connectivity and more robust bilateral synchronization between brain hemispheres. This study (Jiang et al., 2020) was recently published ...

Covid-19 had us all fooled, but now we might have finally found its secret.

In the last 35 days, a mountain of anecdotal evidence has come out of NYC, Italy, Spain, etc. about COVID-19 and characteristics of patients who get seriously ill. Its not only piling up but now leading to a general field- level consensus backed up by a few previously little-known studies that weve had it all wrong the whole time. Well, a few had some things eerily correct (cough Trump cough), especially with Hydroxychloroquine with Azithromicin, but well get to that in a minute. There is no pneumonia nor ARDS. At least not the ARDS with established treatment protocols and procedures were familiar with. Ventilators are not only the wrong solution, ...

Coronavirus Crisis: The Unexpected Gift to Narcissists The pandemic forces a reset of self-aggrandizing demands for control. You probably know at least one of them, and as a practicing psychologist in New York City, I have treated many of them. The narcissist is that person in your life who always seems to crave admiration, often acts entitled and selfish, and more often than not seems unable to experience genuine empathy for the emotional hurt and suffering of others. The narcissist is often a victim of their own deeply embedded insecurities and poor parenting, which failed to teach the importance of humility, emotional generosity, and the ability to put oneself in touch with the ...
