They Shunned Covid Vaccines but Embraced Antibody Treatment – The New York Times (Me: Politicizing Covid-19 vaccines – insane results)

Vaccine-resistant Americans are turning to the treatment with a zeal that has, at times, mystified their doctors, chasing down lengthy infusions after rejecting vaccines that cost one-hundredth as much. Orders have exploded so quickly this summer — to 168,000 doses per week in late August, up from 27,000 in July — that the Biden administration warned states this week of a dwindling national supply.

The federal government, which was already covering the cost of the treatment — currently about $2,100 per dose — has now taken over its distribution as well. For the coming weeks, the government has told states to expect scaled-back shipments because of the looming shortages.

With seven Southern states accounting for 70 percent of orders, the new process has unsettled some of their governors, who have made the antibody treatment central to their strategy for enduring a catastrophic wave of the Delta variant.

More supplies are on the way. The federal government bought 1.8 million more doses this week, expected to arrive in the fall and winter. But for now, some hospitals are uncertain of supplies, state health officials said, even as patients keep searching for doses.

“We have providers struggling to get the necessary product,” Kody Kinsley, who leads operations for North Carolina’s Covid-19 response, said in an interview. “I think what has happened is a classic logistics issue, where all of a sudden there’s much more demand.”

Amid a din of antivaccine falsehoods, monoclonal antibodies have become the rare coronavirus medicine to achieve near-universal acceptance. Championed by mainstream doctors and conservative radio hosts alike, the infusions have kept the country’s death toll — 2,000 per day and climbing — from soaring even higher.

And after months of work by President Biden and Southern governors to promote the treatments, they have won the affection of vaccine refusers who said that the terrors and uncertainties of actually getting Covid had made them desperate for an antidote.

“The people you love, you trust, nobody said anything negative about it,” Mr. Jones said of the antibody treatment. “And I’ve heard nothing but negative things about the side effects of the vaccine and how quickly it was developed.”

Justice said he doesn’t think that vaccines should be mandated. However, he issued a warning that more people would die until enough people get the jab. 

“At the end of the day, we’re going to do one of two things,” Justice said.

“We’re going to run to the fire and get vaccinated right now. Or we’re going to pile the body bags up until we reach a point in time to where we have enough people that have natural immunities and enough people that are vaccinated,” he said. “Now, that’s all there is to it. I would really highly encourage you to get vaccinated.”

lonesome moment

Soni's thoughts

walking down the lane!
flooding entangled thoughts within!
accustomed to the deep pain!
to verbalize, can see noone!
heart supplicated for a response!
Mind denied to enounce!
kept on thinking where am i moving!
in this dusky hushed evening!
a freaky feelings of loneliness!
kept exacerbating in each moment!
no ray of hope, no bit of positivity!
embracing and moving ahead with this air of despondancy!

« A terra para os indígenas não tem valor comercial, como no sentido privado da posse civil. É uma relação de identidade, que inclui espiritualidade e existência, e é possível afirmar que não existe comunidade indígena sem terra »

Barbara Crane Navarro

O ministro do Supremo Tribunal Federal, Edson Fachin, votou pela rejeição do «marco temporal» e a favor dos direitos dos povos indígenas.

Fachin disse: «Não há maior segurança jurídica do que o respeito à Constituição», refutando o argumento ruralista de que demarcações sem «marco temporal» geram insegurança jurídica.

Em seu voto, Fachin defende que os direitos constitucionais indígenas não podem ser questionados, «pois esses direitos estão vinculados à própria condição de existência dessas comunidades e ao seu modo de vida.»

Ele rejeita interpretações que tentam igualar propriedade nativa e civil, como o faz o «marco temporal». «Terras indígenas», diz ele, «são maiores do que um ‘conjunto de cabanas’; incluem todo o território necessário à existência dos povos.»

Ele acrescentou que «a terra para os povos indígenas não tem valor comercial, como no sentido privado de posse civil. É uma relação de identidade, que inclui espiritualidade e existência, e é possível…

Lê Vĩnh Tài | when sugar is no longer sweet (305)

SONGNGUTAITRAM

By Lê Vĩnh Tài, translated by Nguyễn Thị Phương Trâm

 

tell me

closed is heaven’s door

there’s no one left on earth

to see you cry

 

let me know

you can’t go home

you’ve nowhere to hide 

from the storm

 

let me know

everything you see now is extremely bleak

you’re lonely

 

tell me

the funny stories

no longer makes you laugh

 

let me know 

when sugar is no longer sweet

in its place

the laughter of your enemy

in every meal

 

tell me 

just tell me

if you’re used to it

and even if you’re not used to it

I will still know

 

because when it rains

when the teardrops touches your skin

I will tell you: – (em)you’re going to be fine

you can just knock on the door

don’t say that’s not your home

any more

 

and even when…

Duburee

Weekend Stories by Trishikh

Atop a small hill, on the banks of the mighty Damodar river in the steel city of Durgapur in the Bankura district of the state of West Bengal in the Indian subcontinent stood a rickety little mud cottage. In front of this tiny earthen adobe towered a metal and concrete two-way vehicular bridge atop a colossal barrage, stretching across the ancient riverbed. At the break of dawn, every day, from this flimsy shanty emerged a bald old man with a long silver beard and a massive chest. No one knew his real name and called him Duburee, meaning a diver in the Bengali language.

Wearing only a tightly wrapped loincloth around his waist, he would spend the next hour applying a strong-smelling mustard oil all over his old but firm skin, especially inside his ears, naval, and on his colossal chest. Following this, he would perform another hour of yogic…

Dead Poets Society

“I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived. I did not wish to live what was not life, living is so dear; nor did I wish to practise resignation, unless it was quite necessary. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life, to live so sturdily and Spartan-like as to put to rout all that was not life, to cut a broad swath and shave close, to drive life into a corner, and reduce it to its lowest terms...”
