Love is Too Short for You Not to Do What You Love

MiddleMe

Love is a subjective emotion. While others talked about love between two person, I want to address love in a different way. To me, it is suffering if you cannot find love (even a wee bit) in what you do on a daily basis. I’m not sure if it is even worth the pay check if you are trading your precious time with happiness.

Below is an article I have shared in a collaborative with Patty Wolters and I hope to shred some light in this little thing we called love.

This is the perfect way to end my March with you. See you in April!

Enjoy!


When it comes to career, the golden rule is to enjoy your work rather than just focusing only on your salary or rank. If you are not happy with what you are doing, you are more likely to end up getting depressed and…

Las duras imágenes que muestran el colapso de hospitales y morgues en Brasil por covid-19

Los hospitales en Brasil han colapsado. Es fácil de decir, pero difícil de mostrar: CNN obtuvo imágenes que encarnan la gravedad de la situación. Entre ellas, una morgue abrumada con cadáveres porque no puede cremarlos lo suficientemente rápido; hospitales públicos con tan poco oxígeno que ponen tanques en el medio de una sala y pasan tubos de paciente a paciente y hasta de sala a sala a través de una ventana; un enfermero cuenta cómo retiró un respirador a un anciano y se lo dio a una persona más joven que tenía más posibilidades de sobrevivir Source: Las duras imágenes que muestran el colapso de hospitales y morgues en Brasil por covid-19

The Antiscience Movement Is Escalating, Going Global and Killing Thousands – Scientific American

Now antiscience is causing mass deaths once again in this COVID-19 pandemic. Beginning in the spring of 2020, the Trump White House launched a coordinated disinformation campaign that dismissed the severity of the epidemic in the United States, attributed COVID deaths to other causes, claimed hospital admissions were due to a catch-up in elective surgeries, and asserted that ultimately that the epidemic would spontaneously evaporate. It also promoted hydroxychloroquine as a spectacular cure, while downplaying the importance of masks. Other authoritarian or populist regimes in Brazil, Mexico, Nicaragua, Philippines and Tanzania adopted some or all of these elements.

I trace the adoption of antiscience as a major platform of the GOP to the year 2015 when the antivaccine movement pivoted to political extremism on the right. It first began in Southern California when a measles epidemic erupted following widespread vaccine exemptions. The California legislature shut down these exemptions to protect the public health, but this ignited a “health freedom” rallying cry. Health freedom then gained strength and accelerated in Texas where it formed a political action committee linked to the Tea Party. Protests against vaccines became a major platform of the Tea Party; this then generalized in 2020 to defy masks and social distancing. Further accelerating these trends were right wing think tanks such as the American Institute of Economic Research that sponsored the Great Barrington Declaration, and the Hoover Institution at Stanford University, the home of physician Scott Atlas, who became a senior advisor to the Trump White House coronavirus task force.

Containing antiscience will require work and an interdisciplinary approach. For innovative and comprehensive solutions, we might look at interagency task forces in the U.S. government or among the agencies of the United Nations. Given the role of state actors such as Russia, and antivaccine organizations that monetize the internet, we should anticipate that any counteroffensive could be complex and multifaceted. The stakes are high given the high death toll that is already accelerating from the one-two punch of SARS CoV2 and antiscience. We must be prepared to implement a sophisticated infrastructure to counteract this, similar to what we have already done for more established global threats. Antiscience is now a large and formidable security issue.

More Travelers with Fraudulent COVID-19 Test Results Getting Caught

The BC Area

There are growing calls today it seems for a vaccination health passport to be used in travel to help streamline the process post pandemic. But there are some issues with this potential system of verification and it leads some open to discrimination who cannot get the vaccine etc, among other issues.

Already, for months now those who are engaged in travel have had to produce negative COVID-19 test results or show vaccination proof before being allowed to travel. This means that there has been a potential for an increase in fraud as well, specifically those showing fraudulent COVID-19 test results to authorities.

The CBSA says that they have already allegedly intercepted dozens of suspected fraudulent COVID-19 tests from travelers who have been looking to try and enter the country.

And that is just the amount that they say that they have captured in the last few months, since the beginning…

Russia blocks military archives in further effort to distort the truth about World War II (Me: translation… Russia wants to control and pass on its own distortions)

Russia’s Defence Minister, Sergei Shoigu has issued orders which effectively block almost all access to Russian military archives from the period of the Second World War.  The move is especially alarming given the current regime’s systematic attempts to push its own narrative about that period, distorting or muffling historical facts, for example, about the Soviet Union’s collaboration with Nazi Germany from 1939 to June 1941.
