  • Catholic Bishops Pander To Washington State Politics Rather Than Defend Their Faith

    Bishops are keeping sacraments suspended indefinitely and allowing Washington churches to be treated differently than other establishments in terms of opening. Washington state Catholic leaders would rather stick it to the president than let him defend their right to celebrate Mass. Following President Donald Trump’s direction on Friday for states to allow houses of worship to reopened and to declare public worship as essential, Gov. Jay Inslee immediately thumbed his nose, and Washington bishops quickly follow suit.In a disappointing response, the bishops demonstrated that rather than stand up for their flock and acknowledge the president’s commitment to religious freedom, they...

    We are now in the age of the coronavirus and we shall soon see the mettle of our country based on our response to this pandemic. I have no doubt that a play will be written about it soon and it will either be a Trump didnt do enough and people died and he has blood on his hands play, which will have a limited shelf life but will be all the rage for a good month or two; or a heart-rendering, mind-numbing tragedy about all the truly good people who lost their battle with COVID-19 and the one survivor...

    Top Medical Body ICMR Issues Revised Advisory On Use Of Anti-Malarial Drug Hydroxychloroquine The revised advisory issued by the ICMR on Friday, however, cautioned that the intake of the medicine should not instill a sense of false security. Press Trust of India NDTV May 23, 2020 New Delhi: A revised government advisory has recommended use of hydroxychloroquine as a preventive medication for asymptomatic healthcare workers working in non-COVID-19 hospitals, frontline staff on surveillance duty in containment zones and paramilitary/police personnel involved in coronavirus infection related activities.

    In addition to addressing the general looming mental health crisis, we must be specifically prepared for the mental health problems we will see in frontline health care workers. I am a psychiatrist at Columbia University Irving Medical Center. I have many great colleagues on the medical side of things who are performing heroically during this pandemic, many of whom I met as a medical intern 15 years ago. The ties we developed during that grueling year are lifelong. I check in with them regularly to see how they are managing during this difficult time and lend an ear when I...
  • Stop Fear-Mongering: Kids Are Safer From Covid-19 Than Everyone Else

    The Federalist ^ | May 21, 2020 | Phil Kerpen
    The coronavirus news for kids has been overwhelmingly positive, but Gov. Andrew Cuomo is feeding fear by raising a tenuously connected specter of Kawasaki disease for children. Just when COVID death rates are declining and recovery appears around the corner in most states, the latest fear is that children are getting sick and are at risk of dying. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is one of those prominently pushing this inaccurate idea. He has emerged as the COVID-19 antihero due to his catastrophic policy of forcing nursing homes to accept infectious patients, which led to a surge in deaths. He...

    The Federalist ^ | May 15, 2020 | Matt Kttlle, Wis. — Declaring that the state’s top health official wrongly bypassed legislative oversight, the Wisconsin Supreme Court on Wednesday struck down the Evers’ administration’s extended lockdown of the state.The 4-3 decision by the conservative-led court declares Wisconsin Department of Health Services Secretary-designee Andrea Palm’s Emergency Order 28 “unlawful, invalid, and unenforceable.”“Because Palm did not follow the law in creating Order 28, there can be no criminal penalties for violations of her order,” the ruling notes. “The procedural requirements of Wis. Stat. ch. 227 must be followed because they safeguard all people.”Palm’s extended order, issued before Evers’ first stay-at-home edict...

    Like most, Ive been working from my home for over two months now. At first it made sense due to the uncertainty involved with the Covid-19 virus. Back in Mid-March we were looking at data from China that was suspect, massive deaths in Italy and a virus that spread in such an insidious way that it would be nearly impossible to prevent its spread without drastic actions. We were looking at hospitals being overwhelmed and with too few beds to take care of the ill. It was a pretty scary time.By Mid-April we knew that the virus was most deadly...

    From the latest private message from dp0622... Farmer Dean was supposed to be released from the hospital to go home. Instead he has been put in hospice care, unable to answer the phone or even care for himself. Unfortunately this is most likely the end of the line for Dean. He has suffered mightily over the last three years, spending most of that time in the hospital. Please address replies and prayers to dp0622 as he is very close to Dean and will be in contact with Dean's wife asap.

  • Hygienic fascism: Turning the world into a 'safe space' but at what cost?

    The Hill ^ | Joel Kotkin
    Author Aldous Huxley once said, A thoroughly scientific dictatorship will never be overthrown. Even as we try to battle the COVID-19 pestilence, we may be contracting a more dangerous virus hygienic fascism. This involves a process when our political leaders defer to a handful of experts, amid what Dr. Joseph Ladopo, an associate professor at the UCLA School of Medicine, describes as an atmosphere of COVID-19-induced terror.

    I have arrived at the age where the eyes and hands don't fully cooperate like they use to! (Doesn't help that I am blind in one eye either) Well anyway, I am wanting, (needing) to give up the standard razor and move to an electric. I've had electrics in the past (norelco, panasonic ..) but none of them worked very well! Reading up on the topic, I'd say that the 'rotating head' rather than the foil head would be preferable. I would like some recommendations from any long time users if you don't mind? Not having a lot of money...

    Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and member of the White House coronavirus task force, will be entering modified quarantine after contact with someone who has tested positive for the coronavirus. According to reports, Fauci will be staying at home and teleworking while wearing a mask for 14 days, but might also be going to his office at the National Institutes of Health where he is the only one there. A public health official told CNN that Fauci made low risk contact with a coronavirus case, as he was in the same room...

    With COVID-19, it is like that clichéd scene in the movies where the scientist looks up from the microscope and says, ‘This doesn't seem to behave like anything I've ever seen before.’ My father-in-law recently asked me if it is hard to see hospitals and death in film because their depictions are so inaccurate. Yes, it can ruin the realism for me and make me cringe. Then I realized that just watching the news or press conferences these days are giving me the same feeling.Everyone seems to be talking about intensive care units (ICUs) and COVID-19 patients. As someone who...

    As Americans debate how to reopen our society in the wake of COVID-19, we seem to be breaking down into three groups: first, those who believe the virus isn't particularly serious and desperately want to reopen everything as soon as possible (a small minority of Americans, by polling data); second, those who believe the virus is extraordinarily serious and want everything to remain closed as long as possible (a significant minority of Americans); and third, those who believe the virus is extraordinarily serious, that the economic damage brought about by COVID-19 is extraordinarily serious and that we will have to...

  • Keto Diet Benefits: High-Fat Diet May Help Manage Asthma

    A new study shows that the health benefits of keto diet could help manage asthma. The very low-carb, high-fat diet lowers the inflammation of the respiratory tract, which may then help reduce the prevalence of the respiratory condition. Researchers at the University of Bonn in Germany explained that asthma attacks occur due to severe inflammation of the bronchi and increased mucus production. Their study shows that increased consumption of fats on keto diet could help prevent these changes. The eating plan helps reduce inflammation by improving the functions of Innate Lymphoid Cells (ILC) in the immune system. These cells play...
