VIDEO: The Truth Behind The Coronovirus Pandemic; Lockdown and Economic Crash – David Icke

DAVID ICKE – THE TRUTH BEHIND THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC: COVID-19 LOCKDOWN & THE ECONOMIC CRASH

Coronavirus Pandemic & Paranoia vs Fearing, Caring & Sharing – By Yvonne Sam

  By Yvonne Sam – Commentary

Amidst the panic what message are we sending to the kids.

The news has been received—Yes, the coronavirus is here. Fear Not.

But mass panic is also here- FEAR.

As a health care professional for more than four decades, there is very little to which I have not been exposed in my profession – HIV, whooping cough, tuberculosis, shingles, measles, hepatitis, diphtheria. And with noteworthy exception of SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Acute Syndrome), very little has left me feeling vulnerable, overwhelmed or straight-out scared.            Continue reading

China sneezes: The world catches a bad cold; pneumonia and sometimes death! – By Jean H Charles

When China sneezes the rest of the world catches a bad cold that may lead to pneumonia and sometimes to death!

Jean H Charles

 By Jean H Charles  –  syndicated columnist. 

In my commentaries, I have often mused the rest of the world will be half Chinese in the long run. With its fluid population of 1.4 billion people (1.386 as of 2017) out of 7 billion (7.53 as of 2017) in the rest of the universe, China can make a lot of mischief or it can help to solve most of this world’s problems.

With the Chinese Revolution brought about by Mao Ts Tong in 1946 followed by the corrections of Zhou En Lai and the reformer Deng Xiaoping with his practical mind and now the global leadership led by Xi JinPing through the Chinese Silk Road, China in the past seventy years and beyond will heavily influence what’s in happening in the rest of the world. The corona virus known through its scientific name of COVID19 that is sweeping all over the world is a vibrant example of the worst and the best coming from China.            Continue reading

BOOK: A virus called Wuhan-400 causes outbreak … in a Dean Koontz thriller from 1981. – Commentary

How is it that some books appear to prophesy events?

The Eyes of Darkness features a Chinese military lab in Wuhan that creates a virus as a bio-weapon; civilians soon become sick after accidentally contracting it

In fact, the one lab in China able to handle the deadliest viruses is in Wuhan and helped sequence the novel coronavirus the world is currently battling

Kate Whitehead | South China Morning Post

The Eyes of Darkness, a 1981 thriller by bestselling suspense author Dean Koontz, tells of a Chinese military lab that creates a virus as part of its biological weapons programme. The lab is located in Wuhan, which lends the virus its name, Wuhan-400. A chilling literary coincidence or a case of writer as unwitting prophet?                  Continue reading

China is imposing tough measures to contain the Wuhan coronavirus – The Economist

A city in lockdown  —–  Almost all Chinese provinces now have confirmed cases

Editor’s note (January 27th): Some numbers in this article have been updated since publication.

IT IS THE third day of the Chinese new year, a time when families would normally still be celebrating. But Zhang Fang (not her real name) is keeping herself isolated in her bedroom. She probably has a mild infection typical of the season, but is not taking risks. Ms Zhang, a marketing manager in her 20s, lives with her husband and her in-laws in a central district of Wuhan, the Chinese city first affected by a newly identified coronavirus that has been causing global alarm.

Wuhan, a city of 11m people, has been in lockdown since January 23rd.        Continue reading

Business: Big Oil has a do-or-die decade ahead because of climate change – The Economist

Schumpeter …….The 2020s are poised to be to energy firms what the 2010s were to utilities—disruptive
The Economist – Business –Jan 18th 2020 edition

Many will scoff. Oil companies are, after all, widely regarded as the villains of the climate crisis. Repsol is a relatively puny producer; its vow may simply be a gambit to woo investors keen on “sustainability”. Yet it deserves a pat on the back. Without the oil industry’s balance-sheets and project-management skills, it is hard to imagine the world building anything like enough wind farms, solar parks and other forms of clean energy to stop catastrophic global warming. The question is no longer “whether” Big Oil has a big role to play in averting the climate crisis. It is “when”.  Continue reading

Earth’s Magnetic North Pole Continues Drifting, Crosses Prime Meridian

By Stephanie Pappas | Space.com

Earth’s magnetic north pole, which has been wandering faster than expected in recent years, has now crossed the prime meridian.

Magnetic north has been lurching away from its previous home in the Canadian Arctic toward Siberia at a rate of about 34 miles (55 kilometers) a year over the past two decades. The latest model of the Earth’s magnetic field, released Dec. 10 by the National Centers for Environmental Information and the British Geological Survey, predicts that this movement will continue, though likely at a slower rate of 25 miles (40 km) each year.

This model is used to calibrate GPS and other navigation measurements.             Continue reading
