    Covid-19 Germany

    Merkel pushes for tighter movement restrictions in German Covid-19 hotspots   [5 Jan 2021]

     

    Quote

     

    The government and states have agreed to restrict travel for residents in Covid-19 hotspots to a 15 km radius, according to DPA.

     

    When a district hits an average of 200 coronavirus infections per 100,000 residents in seven days, those living there will only be allowed to travel a maximum of 15 km from their home, according to the draft agreement.

     

    Chancellor Merkel had been pushing for this order to come into force in regions with an incidence rate of 100 infections per 100,000 people in seven days. If Merkel got her way, this rule would then apply to most of the country, effectively bringing regional travel to a complete standstill.

     

    According to the draft decision paper, more than 70 districts in Germany have an incidence of over 200, just 99 districts or cities have an incidence of less than 100.

    In total, there are 294 districts and 107 independent cities in Germany.

    Quote

    1349. The plague ravages the Kingdom of France. Amicia and her younger brother Hugo are pursued by the Inquisition through villages devastated by the disease. On their way, they will have to join forces with other children, and evade swarms of rats using fire and light. Aided only by the link that binds their fates together, they will face untold horrors in their struggle to survive. As their adventure begins… the time of innocence ends.

     

     

    Quote

    The Plague has long been a source of morbid fascination for just about anyone interested in Medieval Europe. Responsible for the deaths of upward of a third of the European population, the images it evokes of pus-filled boils, streets clogged with corpses, and hordes of pestilential rats are perennial fodder for the apocalyptic imagination. “A Plague Tale: Innocence” reimagines the pandemic as a gothic tale.

     


  3. European Activists and Refugee Rescue Boat Operations in the Mediterranean  [The Guardian]

     

    Quote

     

    The 10 crew members of the Louise Michel have diverse backgrounds, but they all identify as anti-racist and anti-fascist activists advocating for radical political change. As it is a feminist project, only female crew members are allowed to speak in the name of the Louise Michel.

     

    The crew, made up of European activists with long experience in search and rescue operations, had already assisted in two other rescue operations involving a total of 105 people, who are now onboard the NGO vessel Sea-Watch 4.

     

    Painted in bright pink and featuring Banksy artwork depicting a girl in a life vest holding a heart-shaped safety buoy, the Louise Michel sails under a German flag. The vessel, named Louise Michel after a French feminist anarchist....

     

    Pia Klemp, the former captain of several NGO boats that have rescued thousands of people over recent years.

     

    Klemp, who initially thought it was a joke, believes she was chosen by Banksy due to her political stance.I don’t see sea rescue as a humanitarian action, but as part of an anti-fascist fight,” she told the Guardian.

    The more I look at this situation in US - the more I think: what the **** is going on??? What the **** is it?:face_palm: How it could happen that almost a half of the country got insane? Just in a few days. Really this year does not stop surprising me.

     

     

    US-Election 2020

     

    If you take the Fridays for Future demonstrations last year or this year the Black Lives Matter protests, despite understandable reasons why such protest happening there was always the thought that such movements are supported  and happening due to important political events. Last year the EU elections and the neverending story to weaken and topple Trump, the attempt to start the FFF movement aswell in the US with big PR traveling by boat but it actually did not succeed like in the EU/Germany. This year a strong raise of the BLM movement which got pushed (at least when you watch google trends) already in the 2016 election. The black community in the US is divided and not all of them including more conservative voters do not agree with all or even oppose the BLM protests.

  10. The US is re-fighting its Civil War narrative  (June 11, 2020; JP)

     

    Quote

     

    Officers under Gen. Lee are seen today as ‘traitors’ and ‘white supremacists,’

    part of an unfolding narrative in the US that sees the current police brutality and racism as linked to the Civil War.

     

    Lee, the Confederate general, had been offered command of the Federal forces Abraham Lincoln wanted to use to fight the succession of southern states. He chose his state over the Union. Today, that is seen as treason – even though at the time, the Lincoln administration generally did not hang southerners for treason.

     

    Part of what is happening in the US is anger over the reverence shown for Confederate soldiers and generals in the US South. After the Civil War, the South was briefly occupied by Federal soldiers, and there was reconstruction. However, when that era ended, the South rapidly reverted to an attempt to resurrect aspects of the pre-1860 period. African-Americans were deprived of voting rights, segregation became a form of American-style apartheid, the KKK rose and lynching increased.

     

     Other Union generals, such as William T. Sherman or Phil Sheridan, did not do well in history. Sheridan is thought to have said that “the only good Indian is a dead Indian.” Sherman burned cities and invented total war. Furthermore, those like Sheridan and others who fought against Native Americans after the Civil War were brutal in their treatment of nonwhites. John Chivington, who massacred Native Americans at Sand Creek in 1864, was a Union officer. He fought against the Confederacy, but was his cause less white supremacy than those he fought ?..........................

  12. Doctors rethinking coronavirus:  -  Yahoo, April 8 2020

    Are we using ventilators the wrong way?

     

    In a video posted to YouTube on March 31, which has been widely circulated and discussed among doctors on the front lines of fighting COVID-19, Cameron Kyle-Sidell, an emergency medicine doctor at Maimonides Medical Center in Brooklyn, explains how, like most health care workers around the U.S., when he first started providing critical care for coronavirus patients in March, he was under the impression that he would be treating patients with a “viral pneumonia infection that would progress into acute respiratory distress syndrome.

     

    ---------> (C. Kyle-Sidell video)

    "they do not lool like patients dying of pneumonia...patients

    in front of me look like dropped off on the top of the

    Mt. Everest without time to acclimate"

     

    Quote

    “COVID-19 lung disease, as far as I can see, is not a pneumonia and should not be treated as one,” said Kyle-Sidell. “Rather, it appears as if some kind of viral-induced disease most resembling high altitude sickness. It is as if tens of thousands of my fellow New Yorkers are on a plane at 30,000 feet and the cabin pressure is slowly being let out. These patients are slowly being starved of oxygen.”

     

    “I fear,” he said, that using ventilators “to increase pressure on the lungs in order to open them up, is actually doing more harm than good, ......

    ......and that the pressure we are providing to lungs, we may be providing to lungs that cannot take it, and that the ARDS that we are seeing may be nothing more than lung injury caused by the ventilator.”

    Is this proof 'life-saving' ventilators are actually deathtraps?  -   April 17  2020

    Their success rate is appalling and medics are increasingly worried they may do more harm than good, disturbing report reveals   

     

    Quote

     

    Many of the most eminent medical specialists, governments and politicians were insisting in the early days that ventilators were a crucial life-saver.

     

    Dr David Farcy, the president of the American Academy of Emergency Medicine, warns against using them indiscriminately. His patients have been treated successfully with fastflow oxygen delivered through a simple nasal tube or mask. 

     

    'This has challenged everything we thought', he said. 'Six weeks ago everybody (in a hospital) would be running around getting ready to intubate you, put you on a machine'. But not any more. 

    So why the change of tune?

     

    The answer is that some doctors have a remarkable new thesis:

    that the virus's symptoms are more akin to highaltitude breathing difficulties (caused by a lack of oxygen at extreme heights) or even carbon monoxide poisoning (which snuffs out oxygen in the body's red blood cells).

    Corona carries off the old. That is only fair 

     

    A satire piece for German state television (web youth channel) celebrates the spread of coronavirus because it is killing people in developed nations who are responsible for climate change. 

    “It carries off the old, but the young people survive this infection almost effortlessly.That’s simply justice, because for the last 50 years the generation 65+ has driven the planet into a wall”

     

    The piece also lauds the collapse of global air traffic and the reduction of air pollution in China, claiming this will lead to a “green paradise” and that there are “too many of us” anyway.

    “So the coronavirus is probably just a beautiful and sensible reflex of nature that shows humans who is actually in charge,” states the presenter before adding, “Corona is here, because we don’t deserve better.”

    Italy’s government has ordered all shops, bars and restaurants across the country to close as the country’s death toll from the coronavirus outbreak rose by 31% in the space of 24 hours to a total of 827.

     

    As governments across Europe cancelled events, shut schools and imposed travel bans and the World Health Organization formally declared a pandemic, the Italian prime minister, Giuseppe Conte, said all stores would close nationwide bar those selling “basic necessities”, such as pharmacies and supermarkets.

    Under the new decree, people will only be able to travel between cities for emergency reasons and can face fines and up to three months in jail for breaking quarantine rules.

     

    The country is struggling to contain Europe’s worst outbreak of Covid-19, which has claimed 463 lives and

    infected 9,172 people – and late on Monday announced its most drastic measures so far to deal with the crisis.

     

    “The figures show we are experiencing a serious increase in infections, an increase in people hospitalized in intensive care – and an increase, unfortunately, in deaths. We need to change our lifestyle. We need to change it now. That’s why I have decided to adopt these hard measures,” said Conte.

    Currently (as in the last couple of years) the left wing propaganda machine is on full speed  be it in media, some corporations or tech giants. You have to be a bit Ray Charles or left wing not to see this crap although Google being very lefty doesn't help either when most get their news from their search results.

    These mini Goebbels with their copy/paste parroting (surprisingly no diversity in their speeches or texts🤣) think they have the upper hand everywhere besides their echo chambers, we shall see if its true in the next 2-5 years.

    That article reminds me of this ad:

     

     

    When I was a student and in the time before, I was travelling a lot as a backpacker to many countries  on different continents around the world  for months. Our world is just beautiful. There was one thing what I did learn, that culture is unique and diverse around our planet, people are brothers n sisters at heart. Besides that you actually value, discover and tolerate the diversity in our world you learn a lot about yourself,  you get a view from outside about your origin and recognize that also your own culture and society is unique, you notice that Europe is a pearl of a continent with the most density of culturual diversity in the world.

     

    To tell any european citizen of any country or region that those would not have their own culture is not just historical wrong its an effrontery, and if the wheel was invented in Mesopotamia and brought to here it doesnt mean they did invent a motor vehicle. 

     

    Those who are responsible with the release of such content shouldnt be suprised about if they are actually creating here and there nationalism, trying to spread some form of tolerance for foreigness but actually create content which is directed against the own identity of regions or countries of the viewer. 

     

     

     

     

    Google search is really bad compared to ten years ago, when you actually could find content from all directions, also from small blogs or websites. Nowadays you even get sometimes bad search results when you put it in quotion mark.... sucks and feels like a cleaned up Internet.

     

     Duckduckgo.com, Yandex.com, yippy.com or dogpile.com....just some examples which are a good alternative for google search.
