The actor may call himself President but he continues to be just an actor and not a good one, with a script, a director, and very sophisticated technology at his disposal. No costs are spared to sway people’s perceptions and opinions in his favor.
It’s just a Hollywood production.
Paxlovid gained emergency use authorization in the US in December last year as an antiviral drug to treat mild to moderate Covid in high-risk patients.
It has been given to millions of vulnerable Americans with underlying health conditions — reducing their risk of death by up to 90 percent.
But Paxlovid can cause serious health problems when coupled with common heart disease medication such as statins and blood thinners.
Researchers from Lahey Hospital and Medical Center, Harvard Medical School, and other US institutions found the Covid drug can increase the risk of developing blood clots when taken with blood thinners.
It can also cause an irregular heartbeat when combined with drugs for heart pain and when taken alongside statins it can be toxic to the liver.
Isn’t that special?
How Deep is the Rot?
During questioning from Special Counsel John Durham, Brian Auten, a supervisory counterintelligence analyst with the FBI, revealed the FBI offered Christopher Steele one million dollars if he could corroborate allegations in the Dossier, but that Steele could not do so. Auten repeatedly admitted under questioning from Durham that the FBI never got corroboration of the information in the Steele Dossier but used it in the initial FISA application and in the three subsequent renewals.
The Pain is Intentional
(link) Aluminum spiked 7% after the report of the U.S. ban on Russian supplies.
LONDON, Oct 12 (Reuters) – Aluminium prices on the London Metal Exchange (LME) soared on Wednesday after Bloomberg reported that the United States was considering a ban on Russian aluminum in response to the conflict in Ukraine.
Benchmark aluminum was up 3.3% at $2,309 a tonne at 1612 GMT after briefly spiking 7.3% to $2,400 a tonne.
The Biden administration is considering raising tariffs on Russian aluminum to levels so punitive they would effectively ban Russian aluminum producer Rusal, Bloomberg said, citing unnamed people familiar with the decision-making.
All the wide sky
Was there to tempt him as he steered toward heaven.
Meanwhile, the heat of the sun struck his back,
And where his wings were joined, sweet-smelling fluid,
Ran hot that once was wax. – Ovid
Do you think that after years of imprisonment, feeling the sun on your face and the open air beneath your wings, that you would be able to focus on anything but the joy of being alive and free?
Do you think that if you were given the opportunity to go where nobody has been before, that you wouldn’t want to push it to the limit and to dare to be the first to try what no one else has ever even thought possible?
Tell me that if I strapped a pair of wings to your back that could take you wherever you wanted to go whenever you pleased that you’d be careful and sensible about it. You are not better than Icarus just because you have the benefit of his example.
