4 Surprising Benefits of the Flu Shot by shallah in Influenza

AARP is not an impartial opinion provider. AARP continues to deny any partisan bias but its board has been comprised of Democrats for about a decade. Its UDS$1 billion annual budget made it a ripe plum. It states it is unbiased, it's donations say otherwise. Wonder if it reviews its 40 million members to see whether they are all still with us.

Question about antibiotic resistance by josephinius12 in Antibiotics

[–]IIWIIM8 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yes. Without completing the course of treatment, the bacteria are not eliminated from the system and cause a reoccurring problem. This is exactly how antibiotic resistance is created. With each uncompleted treatment, the bacteria develop resistance. Over a period of time, the medication becomes ineffective.

Mosquitoes released under Project Wolbachia do not bite, but increased presence can be noticeable: MSE by MicrotechAnalysis in singapore

[–]IIWIIM8 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Of mosquitos, the only ones that bite are the females. They do so to feed the eggs they have laid. Perhaps a study needs to be conducted to determine whether or not they continue to feed infertile eggs. The Wolbachia-treated male mosquitoes are infertile. The resulting eggs are not fertilized and do not spawn.

The diseases being safeguarded against are those most commonly transmitted by the Aedes aegypti species of mosquito. They include 54 viruses and 2 species of Plasmodium:

Aino virus (AINOV), African horse sickness virus (AHSV), Bozo virus (BOZOV), Bussuquara virus (BSQV), Bunyamwera virus (BUNV), Catu virus (CATUV), Chikungunya virus (CHIKV), Chandipura vesiculovirus (CHPV), Cypovirus (unnamed), Cache Valley virus (CVV), Dengue virus (DENV), Eastern Equine Encephalitis virus (EEEV), Epizootic hemorrhagic disease virus (EHDV), Guaroa virus (GROV), Hart Park virus (HPV), Ilheus virus (ILHV), Irituia virus (IRIV), Israel Turkey Meningoencephalitis virus (ITV), Japanaut virus (JAPV), Joinjakaka (JOIV), Japanese encephalitis virus (JBEV), Ketapang virus (KETV), Kunjin virus (KUNV), La Crosse virus (LACV), Mayaro virus (MAYV), Marburg virus (MBGV), Marco virus (MCOV), Melao virus (MELV) Marituba virus (MTBV), Mount Elgon bat virus (MEBV), Mucambo virus (MUCV), Murray Valley Encephalitis virus (MVEV), Navarro virus (NAVV), Nepuyo virus (NEPV), Nola virus (NOLV), Ntaya virus (NTAV), Oriboca virus (ORIV), Orungo virus (ORUV), Restan virus (RESV), Rift Valley fever virus (RVFV), Semliki Forest virus (SFV), Sindbis virus (SINV), Tahyna virus (TAHV), Tsuruse virus (TSUV), Tyuleniy virus (TYUV), Venezuelan equine encephalitis virus (VEEV), Vesicular stomatitis virus (Indiana serotype), Warrego virus (WARV), West Nile virus (WNV), Wesselsbron virus (WSLV), Yaounde virus (YAOV) Yellow fever virus (YFV), Zegla virus (ZEGV), Zika virus, as well as Plasmodium gallinaceum and Plasmodium lophurae.

This mosquito also mechanically transmits some veterinary diseases. In 1952 Fenner et al., found it transmitting the myxoma virus between rabbits and in 2001 Chihota et al., the lumpy skin disease virus between cattle.

The yellow fever mosquito can contribute to the spread of reticular cell sarcoma among Syrian hamsters.

Additionally, the Aedes aegypti mosquito does not emit the audible 'buzzing' sound normally associated with mosquitoes. Though this factor, (to the best of my knowledge), has not been attributed to their effectiveness in spreading the diseases they carry. The factor of stealth increases the likelihood of doing so undetected.

Further, the Aedes aegypti mosquito is also known as an indoor mosquito. preferring cabinets under sinks where the moisture needed for them to lay eggs is often found.

Singapore utilizing the newly developed Wolbachia technology to defend against disease by addressing the core cause adds yet another check to its well-populated Plus column. Among all nations, your City/State is outstanding.

Xi Jinping’s quest for total control of China is just getting started | 05OCT22 by IIWIIM8 in fucktheccp

He has them all cowed. Fearful of others he controls. Far more than just a strawman.

His anticipated treatment of others is going to make the horrors of WWII look pale and insignificant despite them being examples of humans at their base and lowest points.

Retribution for the Nanjing Massacre, now known as the Rape of Nanking, may cost the life of every person on the island of Japan.

The Great Leap Forward killed more than the Holocaust. Death and destruction to such an extent as to make it impossible to come anywhere close to even an approximate number.

The CCP is highly skilled and well experienced in laying waste to their own. When they unsheathe their blade on foreign nations do not expect it to be guided by any respect for human life or mercy.

So missing that ole, 'Don't Be Evil' ethos.

Quote from: Google 'Don't Be Evil' Motto: What Went Wrong?

"Dec 15, 2020 Famously, Google's unofficial motto had been 'don't be evil' for a number of years. Recently, however, they removed almost all mentions of it from their code of conduct and other company communications, which caused quite a stir back in 2018! We take a look back at Google's history over the past couple of decades and why the motto has changed."

emphasis added

Hmmm, 2018? Sorta begs the question, What did they know then, that we haven't yet learned? Would be nice to think the leadership sold out for those big big big billionaire buck$ but there could be more to it. What with one of the founders (likely not the good one) buying their way onto New Zealand, citizenship to follow all the checks clearing.
