    Covid-19

    Maybe it's a mindset that people get into, always looking for ways to leverage some bucks. Capitalism at it's finest, I suppose. 😞

    Covid-19

    Excellent post. I couldn't agree more. No one is advocating going to some random long-term care home and start voluntarily sneezing on senior citizens either just because you aren't afraid. At least I haven't heard of anyone doing anything quite that asinine. However, a work buddy texted me that he had to go to the bank today and while making his way to the line, extended as it was due to social distancing, some guy who was passing by and not even going to the bank just went off on him about being too close to him. My buddy apologized and backed away but the guy wouldn't let it go. He does his banking and the guy is waiting for him, cursing. He makes his way to his vehicle doing his best not to get into an altercation and the guy finally grabs my buddy's hood. Well, if you knew my buddy you'd know that wasn't a good idea. After a brief confrontation the other guy backed off and left. I'm wondering if anyone else has experienced anything similar lately as this thing tests our humanity towards each other.

    Covid-19

    It was 3 weeks ago, only 1 week before the WHO declared the pandemic.

    What are these sketchy reports? You've identified the tobacco industry and big pharma here. It's not hard to imagine their motivation for lying to u$. What is the motivation for these health experts and academics lying to us?

    Covid-19

    Obscure? It's right there in front of your nose on Globals website. 1-999? Holy hyperbole! There are many experts saying exactly what Mr. Kettner is saying and some of them are saying it much more strongly. It appears people like you choose to ignore them. Why is that? Doesn't feed into the hype machine? Not good click-bait? Since these brilliant people have dedicated their lives to the public good and have risen to the top of their fields and are doctors and academics and not politicians, at least give me some good arguments that disprove what they're saying. Maybe then you can convince me to dismiss them too.

    Since the majority of you are in Manitoba have any of you seen or heard from Dr. Joel Kettner? He is an Associate Professor at the University of Manitoba. He was interviewed by Global in early March and had some interesting comments. Listen particularly to what he says near the end of this piece regarding the flu and Covid-19. It might set some of us a little more at ease. https://globalnews.ca/news/6630957/manitoba-former-health-chief-covid-19-cases/

    Not gonna happen.
  9. That's amazing! Let me share with you what it was like in the plant in the last few weeks before they decided to send all non-essential staff home. As you may know, there are radiological zones in the plant ranging from low risk of spreading radiation to high risk. The zones are clearly delineated and you must pass through various types of radiation detection monitors to move from one zone to another. Normally you are free to go about your business provided you monitor properly between zones. There is zero tolerance, understandably, for not monitoring. Can't be spreading radiation around. In the last few weeks, they had people stationed at these zonal boundaries ensuring that we not only monitored but used the hand sanitizing stations that had been added and everything we touched was immediately sprayed and wiped down with disinfectant. We also had to practice social distancing at all times. It's a strange thing shouting at each other, maintaining distance from each other. It's a strange thing having your movements monitored at all times by security personnel, guys in full riot gear with helmets and automatic weapons eyeballing your every movement. You must show and present to security your identification badges. You must use hand geometry to gain access to certain areas of the plant and it's a strange thing to have someone come behind you and spray down everything you touched with Lysol. Not only could we not spread a radioactive particle. Now we couldn't spread a germ. I saw guys escorted from site because they had developed a cough or a runny nose. Rather than deal with it any longer they just shut the whole thing down and allowed only essential staff. It's a huge facility housing 8 nuclear reactors. The place is used to thousands of people coming and going every day. It is now a virtual ghost town. It is absolutely eerie. Strange times.
  10. I work as a non-essential employee at a nuclear power plant here in Ontario. I got the call on Saturday to stay home for the foreseeable future. I was instructed to file for and collect E.I. as it may go on for a long time. I attempted to file for E.I. and was instructed to call their 1-800 number since I was laid off due to the coronavirus. I have been trying for 2 days to get through to them and it is always the same -- call in, hit buttons as per the voice prompts, and finally get told to call back and try again due to the high volume of calls. Wonderful.

    Covid-19

    "As Professors Ioannidis and Bhakdi have shown, countries like South Korea and Japan that introduced no lockdown measures have experienced near-zero excess mortality in connection with Covid-19, while the Diamond Princess cruise ship experienced an extra­polated mortality figure in the per mille range, i.e. at or below the level of the seasonal flu." https://swprs.org/a-swiss-doctor-on-covid-19/

    Covid-19

    In a new interview, Professor Sucharit Bhakdi, a world renowned expert in medical microbiology, says blaming the new coronavirus alone for deaths is „wrong“ and „dangerously misleading“, as there are other more important factors at play, notably pre-existing health conditions and poor air quality in Chinese and Northern Italian cities. Professor Bhakdi describes the currently discussed or imposed measures as „grotesque“, „useless“, „self-destructive“ and a „collective suicide“ that will shorten the lifespan of the elderly and should not be accepted by society.
