Born in The USA

A new study by Chinese researchers indicates the novel coronavirus may have begun human-to-human transmission in late November from a place other than the Huanan seafood market in Wuhan. The study published on ChinaXiv, a Chinese open repository for scientific researchers, reveals the new coronavirus was introduced to the seafood market from another location(s), and then spread rapidly from the market due to the large number of close contacts. The findings were the result of analyses of the genome data, sources of infection, and the route of spread of variations of the novel coronavirus collected throughout China. The study believes … Continue reading Born in The USA

COVID-19: All Truth Has Three Stages First, it is ignored. Second, it is widely ridiculed. Third, it is accepted as self-evident. With COVID-19, we have now entered Stage 2.

End the annual shame of Orange Order marches in Scotland

IT’S that time of the year again, when the streets of Scotland’s towns and cities, or at least those in the Central Belt, are filled with the cacophony of sectarianism. I had planned to go into the centre of Glasgow last weekend to do some shopping, but decided against it because listening to people singing that they would like to be up to their knees in blood, and specifically your blood, isn’t exactly conducive to a pleasant retail experience. This isn’t made any easier by the knowledge that the DUP and other extreme Ulster Loyalist organisations supported by the Orange Order are also … Continue reading End the annual shame of Orange Order marches in Scotland

THE DOCUMENTARY ISRAEL DOESN’T WANT YOU TO SEE

A FOREIGN government is spying on Americans who are exercising their First Amendment rights to free expression. It is secretly giving money, intelligence and strategic advice to political groups that create fake social media pages, ghostwrite op-eds in major newspapers and push for legislation to support its aims. These groups spend tens of thousands of dollars on “astroturf” protests against college student activists and have created anonymous websites to smear them. They are trying to redirect social justice movements like Black Lives Matter to support their own ends. And when journalists uncover these questionable practices and attempt to inform the … Continue reading THE DOCUMENTARY ISRAEL DOESN’T WANT YOU TO SEE
