    From "The chickens coming home to roost" department.

    Seven anti-vaccine doctors fell sick after gathering earlier this month for a Florida “summit” at which alternative treatments for Covid-19 were discussed.

    “I have been on ivermectin for 16 months, my wife and I,” Dr Bruce Boros told the audience at the event held at the World Equestrian Center in Ocala, adding: “I have never felt healthier in my life.”

    The 71-year-old cardiologist and staunch anti-vaccine advocate contracted Covid-19 two days later, according to the head event organizer, Dr John Littell.

    Littell, an Ocala family physician, also told the Daily Beast six other doctors among 800 to 900 participants at the event also tested positive or developed Covid-19 symptoms “within days of the conference”.

    COVID in Germany: Study Finds Link Between Far Right and High Corona Rates - DER SPIEGEL

    The number of coronavirus infections is rising sharply in parts of Germany where the far-right AfD party enjoys greater support. Is it a coincidence? Researchers took a close look at the corollaries and drew some conclusions that surprised even them.

    Meanwhile....the new Marines theme...

    A Few Dumb Men.

    Up to 10,000 active-duty Marines will not be fully vaccinated against the coronavirus when their deadline arrives in coming days, a trajectory expected to yield the U.S. military’s worst immunization rate.

    Mask wearing has zero effectiveness against viruses, thus none of the public health measures are effective against reducing the death tolls caused by the mandates.

    Nothing new or surprising. The military has a decades-long policy of mandatory vaccinations, including some vaccines that civilians don't normally get, like the anthrax vaccine. Can't have military readiness weakened by an outbreak of a preventable disease.

    Another scary story from the folks who never want to go back to normal...... these people are ridiculous....get vaccinated.... the rest is political theater...

    Vaccines are safe and effective and saving lives around the world. But most do not confer 100% protection, most countries have not vaccinated everyone, and it is not yet known if jabs will prevent future transmission of emerging coronavirus variants.

    Now a systematic review and meta analysis of non-pharmaceutical interventions has found for the first time that mask wearing, social distancing and handwashing are all effective measures at curbing cases – with mask wearing the most effective.

    “This systematic review and meta analysis suggests that several personal protective and social measures, including handwashing, mask wearing, and physical distancing are associated with reductions in the incidence of Covid-19,” the researchers wrote in The BMJ.

    They said the results highlight the need to continue mask wearing, social distancing and handwashing alongside vaccine programmes.

    Researchers at Monash University and the University of Edinburgh say multi-faceted measures, such as lockdowns and closures of borders, schools and workplaces need further analysis to assess their potential negative effects on populations.

    Public health or non-pharmaceutical interventions are known to be beneficial in fighting respiratory infections like flu, and countries around the world have tried using them to curb the spread of Covid.

    However, until now, reviews have not been robust enough to allow experts to make firm conclusions about the effectiveness of such measures in tackling Covid.

    Results from more than 30 studies from around the world were analysed in detail, showing a statistically significant 53% reduction in the incidence of Covid with mask wearing and a 25% reduction with physical distancing.

    Marcus Allen was by far my favorite running back. Such a smooth glider and man was he money in short yardage.

    But! I think Walter Payton was the greatest (at least of my lifetime). For a 202 pound guy he ran with such violence. He had that lean. He attacked. I'm thankful for youtube that lets me get lost in his highlights.

    Husband and wife fugitives who helped run $18-million COVID relief fraud ring get years in prison (yahoo.com)

    When convicted Tarzana swindlers Richard Ayvazyan and Marietta Terabelian sliced off their electronic monitoring bracelets and vanished in August, the couple left a note for the three teenage children they abandoned.

    "We will be together again one day," they wrote. "This is not a goodbye but a brief break from each other."

    Ya never know. My 86-year-old younger brother had one of the first pre-vaccine cases of covid. Treated with two consecutive days of injection of a bone-chilling liquid, quick recovery. His wife and her next-door brother's family followed masking and sanitizing protocol, got all the vaccination and booster, shots, nobody got sick. The brother and sister-in-law (70s) just returned from a fall foliage vacation at their cabin in Red River, NM, both came down with covid immediately on return to SW Oklahoma. His mild case, hers more troublesome. They took a side-trip into Colorado, sleeping in their camper, but no known exposure while on vacation.
