Event Update For 2020-12-28


The seas, lakes and oceans are now pluming deadly hydrogen sulfide and suffocating methane. Hydrogen sulfide is a highly toxic water-soluble heavier-than-air gas and will accumulate in low-lying areas. Methane is slightly more buoyant than normal air and so will be all around, but will tend to contaminate our atmosphere from the top down. These gases are sickening and killing oxygen-using life all around the world, including human life, as our atmosphere is increasingly poisoned. Because both gases are highly flammable and because our entire civilization is built around fire and flammable fuels, this is leading to more fires and explosions. This is an extinction level event and will likely decimate both the biosphere and human population and it is debatable whether humankind can survive this event.

A. More fires and more explosions, especially along the coasts, but everywhere generally.
B. Many more animal die-offs, of all kinds, and especially oceanic species.
C. More multiples of people will be found dead in their homes, as if they'd dropped dead.
D. More corpses found in low-lying areas, all over the world.
E. More unusual vehicular accidents.
F. Improved unemployment numbers as people die off.

  1. Last Humpday of the year, Jonny and all JJFH readers.

    [not that it matters, but in the banner pics the headline from the fire truck burning is continued to a Porsche (?) in the next frame]

    What are the odds that 2021 will be even hotter than this past year?
    There's projections out there about next year being slightly cooler than this year, but in the top 5 hottest ever anyway. Stay tuned.

    That fire in Havertown, PA is in my ol' stompin' grounds through college.

    Wednesday, 30 December 2020
    Unstoppable quest to eat, reproduce, repeat! A high survival rate, lack of natural predators and willingness to eat anything and start reproducing before they're a year old, with up to up to 10 piglets at a time; Thousands of Vietnamese pot-bellied pigs are snorting and squealing their way across Puerto Rico

    [at least you can theoretically kill and eat them; just read about the same situation in FL since De Soto landed way back]

    "When they're small, they look really cute"[same a serial killer]

    Meanwhile, the president of Cantera's neighbourhood council says residents can only wait. "We realized this situation had gotten out of control," said Gertrudis Calderon. "It's become a health problem." [more]

    Mask mandates: Do they work? Are there better ways to control covid-19 outbreaks?

    A surge in COVID-19 cases in the United States and Europe has prompted calls for a national mask mandate here in America. Advocates of government edicts have asserted that these would bring the pandemic "under control" in a matter of weeks.

    Public health officials here and throughout most of the world believe that mask-wearing has some value in reducing the rate at which the pandemic spreads. Accepting this premise, however, does not necessarily lead to the conclusion that government mask mandates will bring the contagion under control.

    This Backgrounder examines the effects of mask mandates in the U.S. and Italy. While there is no national mask mandate in the U.S., many states and counties have imposed them. We (the authors) find that, of the 25 counties reporting the highest numbers of new cases during this latest surge, 21 had mask mandates in place since at least July.

    Italy does have a national mask mandate that is backed by fines of up to 1,000 euros for non-compliance. We find that the mandate did not prevent a surge in cases in Italy that began in October, peaked in mid-November, and had not yet subsided in mid-December.

    These findings do not deny the efficacy of mask-wearing per se. Nor should they discourage the practice.

    Instead, they point to the inadequacy of public health strategies that rely predominantly on lockdowns and mask mandates.

    [the Danish study results]
    Those who completed the study underwent COVID-19 tests one month later. Researchers found that 1.8 percent of those in the mask-wearing group tested positive, while 2.1 percent of the control group did. The results were not statistically significant. The researchers concluded that mask-wearing is compatible with a range of outcomes — from a 46 percent reduction in infections to a 23 percent increase.

    The data show that mask mandates have not stemmed the surge. From October 1 through December 13, the U.S. saw an increase of 8.8 million confirmed COVID-19 cases. Of the 100 counties with the most confirmed cases during this period, 97 had either a county-level mask mandate, a state-level mandate, or both.

    Italy: Nationwide Mask Mandate. Unlike the U.S., Italy has a national mask mandate. Italians must wear masks outdoors and indoors, except in their own homes.

    The imposition of a national mandate did not arrest the growth in infection rates. [more]

  2. Actual science: University of Florida researchers find no asymptomatic or presymptomatic spread of Coronavirus

    The researchers confirmed that SARS-CoV-2 is more contagious than other coronaviruses, with a secondary attack rate of 16.6% (95% CI 14.0%-19.3%) compared to 7.5% (95%CI 4.8%-10.7%) for SARS-CoV and 4.7% (95%CI, 0.9%-10.7%) for MERS-CoV.

    The secondary attack rate for symptomatic index cases was 18.0% (95% CI 14.2%-22.1%), and the rate of asymptomatic and presymptomatic index cases was 0.7% (95% CI 0%-4.9%), "although there were few studies in the latter group." The asymptomatic/presymptomatic secondary attack rate is not statistically different from zero, and the confidence interval is technically 0.7 ± 4.2, resulting in a range of -3.5%-4.9%, but attack rates cannot be negative, so it is truncated at 0.

    What is the Novavax vaccine, and how does it work?

    Like most of the Covid-19 vaccine candidates, the Novavax candidate requires two shots spaced three weeks apart. But candidate NVX-CoV2373 actually works differently than the other vaccines that have made it this far. It’s a protein subunit vaccine, which means that it uses a lab-made version of the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein. This spike protein alone can’t make anyone sick. But to make sure that the body still generates the protective antibodies against it, Novavax has inserted an ingredient called an adjuvant, which acts as a hypeman for the immune system to signal it to spring into action.
