From Single Cells to Humans

The emergence of life began 4 billion years ago in the form of single-cell organisms. It proceeded in three different directions called domains, which are the top classification levels. They included different types of algae that became the plant kingdom; various molds or the fungus kingdom; and amoeba-like organisms that evolved into the animal kingdom. Because the mechanisms involved, such as mutation and natural selection, had long periods to work with, each new development along the evolutionary cycle took tens of millions of years. Matt Baker of Useful Charts explains the process.

Coronavirus And HIV

Indian researchers are saying the coronavirus is a bioweapons nightmare. One of their reasons? They say they have found strands of the coronavirus that appear to have RNA strands similar to, or lifted from, the HIV virus. This might be why the Chinese have said they are using AIDs treatments to deal with coronavirus patients. Here, Dr. Paul Cottrell discusses the implications.

Dr. Cottrell returns with a more detailed video that explores the origins of this virus as a bioweapons. It’s looking more likely that is how it came into being and that the Chinese are responsible for unleashing this horror upon their own people. Yes, there was probably an accident of some kind, or an oversight.

But the weapon itself was designed by the Chinese — a hodgepodge of past viruses, including the insertion of HIV. The HIV presence is suppressing the immunology and white blood cells, making this a much more deadly cocktail. We’ll let Dr. Cottrell explain the details. He does so quite well and passionately.

More evidence is emerging suggesting the recent coronavirus was man-made. Meanwhile, last Thursday, the head of the World Health Organization’s campaign to wipe out ebola, Dr. Peter Halama, reportedly died. Details surrounding his death were not forthcoming. Quite strange coincidence. Here are the grisly details from The Last American Vagabond.

Current update from Styxhexenhammer666: The number of infections has risen above 17,500. We’re seeing more cases across southern Asia — India, Vietnam and Thailand. The first death has occurred outside China: A 44-year-old man in the Philippines, although he was originally from the epicenter of the virus in Wuhan, China. There are now two more epicenters within China in Guangdong and Zheijiang. Styx says: Be prepared. Stock up on basic foods and take precautions.

On a side note, the Chinese are being ordered to cull all of their pets, even though there is no evidence whatsoever that these animals are serving as transmitters for the coronavirus. Mr. Obvious says, “China consistently disappoints me.” We concur.  The people might be quite capable, but the government is so regressive and archaic, such bedrock Communists, that it will be tough, if not impossible, for China to ever amount to much.

It’s now clear a pandemic is unavoidable. That raises the question: How bad will it get?  The official data on the spread of the Wuhan coronavirus continues to suggest a geometric growth rate. Which explains why more and more infectious disease experts are now openly calling the virus a full-blown global pandemic.

It’s worth noting at this point that the data we do have, mostly from the Chinese government, is still scant and suspect. Many think the situation is China is worse than is being reported — potentially much worse.

Frustratingly, the Western press seems bent on downplaying the coronavirus threat, many trying to convince us that the standard flu is more dangerous. Which is NOT true, at least in terms of survivability.

So, we must continue to educate ourselves as best we can. Chris Martenson will continue synthesizing the data and reporting back to you with understandable and practical insights.

China’s stocks crash as Coronavirus continues to spread.  It’s probably not going to get as bad here as it has been in Wuhan, China. But it is spreading, and we will face some localized outbreaks in the United States, so best to be prepared. At this point, half of the 12 identified cases in the United States are in California. Most of the other cases are in bigger cities: Boston, New York and Chicago. More from the SGTReport.

How Animals Sleep

For something so natural for humanity, sleep is a bit mysterious in the animal kingdom. Some animals sleep with half a brain, while others snooze for a mere two hours a day. Ed Yong, science writer for The Atlantic, updates us on the latest research on how these creatures  slumber.

A Dose Of Nostradamus

Sixteenth-century French scholar Michel de Nostradamus, who studied astrology and various sciences, is on record for predicting the future–and doing it quite accurately. For instance, Nostradamus wrote in his Book of Prophecies that advances in science and telepathy will allow humans one day to communicate with animals. He said this will lead to an upsurge in vegetarianism and many animals will become our brothers. This is one of five amazing Nostradamus predictions for the future as detailed in this edition of Top 5s.

Animal Misnomers

Some names for groups of animals just don’t complement each other. They just don’t click. For instance, “a drove of bulls.” Wouldn’t “a load of bulls” be a better name? Or instead of “a muster of peacocks,” how about “a bathroom of peacocks?” In this episode of Pleated-Jeans, check out some other names that fit groups of animals.
