      Hello guest!
    The truth is that this pandemic could still potentially be in the early chapters. The Spanish Flu pandemic lasted for three full years, and we could possibly be facing a similar scenario. And this week WHO official Mike Ryan warned that this virus could even become “endemic”, and if that happens it “may never go away”… In other words, Ryan is saying that this virus could become like a flu that keeps reappearing year after year. So what are we going to do if that happens? Are we supposed to have shutdowns every year whenever a new wave of COVID-19 infections starts happening?

    Dermatologists around the world are gathering data on what may be largely overlooked symptoms of COVID-19: skin conditions ranging from rashes to “pseudo-frostbite.” Many viral illnesses—including chickenpox, measles and mononucleosis—are accompanied by telltale skin rashes, often a result of the body’s heightened inflammatory response while fighting off infection. Though more research is needed, a growing number of case reports and preliminary studies suggest SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, can also affect the skin. In late March, an Italian physician submitted a letter to the editor of the Journal of the European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology, describing skin conditions that affected about 20% of 88 COVID-19 patients analyzed in the Lombardy region of Italy. Most of them developed a red rash on their torsos, while a few suffered hives or blisters resembling chickenpox. Then, in early April, a dermatology organization representing more than 400 French dermatologists issued a statement noting that among probable COVID-19 patients they had seen skin symptoms including hives, red rashes and frostbite-like lesions on the extremities. And finally, in mid-April, in a letter to the editor of the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology, a group of Italian physicians described a chickenpox-like rash as “a rare but specific COVID-19-associated skin manifestation.”

    As you say, it may be nothing more than a rumor. Anything asserted without evidence can also be dismissed without evidence. So we can just wait for the evidence before concluding anything. Of course, it is also very important to various groups and political entities to make sure there is a CURRENT negative story about China available at all times. Most of these turn out to be nothing or untrue, but just having the story out there, no matter how short-lived, is important to skew opinion. So if this one is untrue, then it adds to a growing list of failed propaganda stories against China. The CCP enjoys overwhelming support from Chinese people of varying class and wealth within all parts of China, so that even a terrible scandal would probably not have much effect on its stability. Within China the President (Xi) has been given high ratings for many years. The Chinese view of their own economy, the reduction of poverty, "peace and security," ease of transportation, even their own "human rights" are important to them. If such a scandal turns out to be true, it would probably have to be leveraged from political and economic forces outside the country before it had enough of an effect inside China to bring down a popular political party.

    We have been renting for many years. We now rent a residential part of the house (two room flat) we live in and also a large part of one house a little further away. We have always had lower prices than many others..... And we pay taxes to the state . One tenant is currently without a permanent job because of Covid 19. We told the tenant that the rent amount, which is otherwise for one month, will be for the next three months. Hopefully they can find some work and a paycheck.

    Was Saint Peter ever in Rome?

    There is nothing in the Bible itself about that. There are a few traditions about Peter and Rome, but they are mostly from a couple hundred years after the events would have taken place. And these traditions are often contradictory. The Bible is much more consistent and was written almost completely in the same century when Peter lived. Some of those traditions had the Gospel writer Mark as his secretary, but the Bible does not speak of either of them in Rome. The closest is this verse: (1 Peter 5:13, 14) 13 She who is in Babylon, a chosen one like you, sends you her greetings, and so does Mark, my son. 14 Greet one another with a kiss of love.. . . Since Peter was married, the "she" here is often thought of as referring to his wife, and Babylon is sometimes thought of as a pseudonym for Rome. But we also know that there was still a thriving Jewish population in the actual area of Babylon, so a pseudonym for Rome is not a definite explanation here.

    This has happened many, many times in the past, and is nothing new. Evidence is recorded in core samples from iron bearing sediments at the bottom of the Mediterranean Sea. This happens gradually, very unevenly, in local areas only, all over the world, until a threshold is reached, then the whole thing "flips", more or less somewhere around 160 to 180 degrees.

    French hospital discovers Covid-19 case from December Man found to have had virus a month before government confirmed first cases A French hospital that retested old samples from pneumonia patients has discovered that it treated a man with the coronavirus as early as 27 December, nearly a month before the French government confirmed its first cases. Dr Yves Cohen, head of resuscitation at the Avicenne and Jean Verdier hospitals in the northern suburbs of Paris, told BFM TV that scientists had retested samples from 24 patients treated in December and January who tested negative for flu. “Of the 24, we had one who was positive for Covid-19 on 27 December,” he told the news channel on Sunday. ...

    This coronavirus stuff reminds me of the story of the Grasshopper and the Ant. Everybody sthe story of the Grasshopper, and the Ant. The Grasshopper played the fiddle all summer, goofing off, while the industrious Ant stayed busy storing up food for the coming long, hard winter. When the first snow of winter came, the Grasshopper had no food, but the Ant had more than enough food for the winter. So ... the Grasshopper got in his sports car and went to Florida, ... and someone stepped on the Ant.

    Was Saint Peter ever in Rome?

    No proof. But evidence for a tomb supposedly belonging to to the apostle Peter is very old, reaching back to the century after Peter lived. (Some archaeologists also believe they have found physical evidence for such a tomb.) There is no direct Biblical evidence that Peter was ever in Rome. But the early 'church' found it very important to control the location of the bones of martyrs. (There was an early superstition that touching or interacting somehow with the bones, grave or objects owned by martyrs could pass along some of the 'spirit' or miraculous power of that martyr.) The more famous the martyr, the more important it was for the 'church' to control the location of those bones and the tomb. So although the reasons for keeping or moving Peter's tomb to Rome might be very un-Biblical, it doesn't mean that it didn't happen.

    I can’t stand this guy. His manner is simply nauseating. Pour on the syrup or what? He turned my stomach then, he turns it now. But I also suspect the stuff he is selling probably works—to call it a ‘cure’ is too much, but to say it helps—i would go along with that. If I recall it is silver colloidal something or other and that is a mixture that many swear by. It is not that he hawks something that gets me. It is that he so throughly mixes it with his role as ‘evangelist.’ It is as though the Circuit Overseer had a line of goods that he sold at the Assembly Hall—and you couldn’t get into the place without passing his booth by.

    Vitamin D

    I may add that vitamin D3 is the best form to use and one should always use it with vitamin K2. Vitamin K2 counteracts any hardening of the arteries which can come with use of vit D. I write this from memory...... so research he vit K2 connection to D3.

    France and Australia first reported a spike in domestic violence figures since the outbreak of COVID-19 and issue of stay-at-home orders. Research has shown that a forced domestic life and isolation only spurs domestic violence within the household, considering factors like financial stability and unemployment which are both rising concerns during the pandemic.

    China spent the crucial first days of the Wuhan coronavirus outbreak arresting people who posted about it online and threatening journalists Another first hand report from a citizen in Wuhan (hit the cc symbol during the video to understand) Wuhan has over 11,000,000 in population. Wuhan, China high speed trains have been stopped. Imagine the potential this has to "derail" the world economy at its weakest moment.

    If you snooze ... you lose. People used to say to me, "Take it Easy, Tom !", because I was always hustling, and walking fast, and reading. My reply was " ... can't do that ... someone will have me for lunch, and I would be the lunch ! " Everything changes. Keep up ... or be run over by those who do.

    Der Papst zittert vor den Zeugen Jehovas Eine aktuelle hochrangige Konferenz Vatikan, heute hier mit dem enormen Anstieg der Zeugen Jehovas. Wenn der Papst kommt Berichte aus dierentes Ländern Teil von geistlichen. In Bologna, Italien, der Papst genehmige ich eine Konferenz zu diskutieren, Formen zu bekämpfen, die Zeugen. Die Katholische Sekte gestartet zu einem Aufschrei vor den 10.000 Kulmhof, dass pro Jahr gemacht werden Zeugen. Eine Zeitschrift Jesuit kommentiert: Der Erfolg von Ihnen liegt in ihrer Propaganda (Asi nennen die Predigt). Arbeiten sorgfältig von Haus zu Haus und ausgebildete Menschen überzeugt. Der zweite Grund für den Erfolg der Zeugen ist die Kraft der Anziehung der Nachricht von Jehova, da sie die Bedürfnisse, wünsche und Erwartungen der Männer aus unserer Zeit. Erstens, reagiert auf die Notwendigkeit der Sicherheit, ist es sehr zu schätzen, in einer Zeit, in der alles ist unsicher und instabil. Die Botschaft von Jehova hilft bei der Überwindung der Sorge des Individuums gegen die übel dieser Welt, kündigt, wird bald beendet die unerträgliche Situation von heute, und sehr bald, daher wird es eine neue Ära, die geboren werden wird eine Welt Neue, in dem der ganzen bösen werden gelöscht Diese Bewegung gibt ihren Mitgliedern eine genaue Identität und stark, und es ist ein Ort, wo wurden sie empfangen mit Wärme und ein Gefühl der Brüderlichkeit und Solidarität. Der Schriftsteller Katholik Vittorio Messori, sagt, dass " die Zeugen Jehovas, ist eine der religiösen Bezeichnungen der am schnellsten wachsenden der Welt. Es ist eine der Religionen, üben sich in vielen Ländern und vielleicht [...] ist der erste, der in Bezug auf die Inbrunst, Eifer, Aktivismus, die Fähigkeit zu tun Prosélitos. "" und ihre Anwesenheit, immer stärker ausgeprägt, beschränkt sich nicht auf die Länder in der christlichen Tradition zu erreichen, aber die ganze Welt, wo in den Namen des Herrn, und in kürzester Zeit Ergebnisse erzielt werden, die höher sind als die von Die Missionare Katholiken, Protestanten und orthodoxen gearbeitet haben, im Laufe der Jahrhunderte. " Auf die Art und Weise zu verstehen, die Bibel, die Zeugen Jehovas, die tatsächlichen Bedürfnisse zu befriedigen, die andere Muslime sind nicht." " es ist nicht glaubhaft, die Frage, deutet darauf hin, dass das Wachstum von Zeugen ist darauf zurückzuführen, dass die Menschen Angst haben; es ist gerade Im Gegenteil. Im Gegensatz zu der Kirche "Offizielle", die Existenz der Hölle und der Zerstörung zu predigen, verschwinden nach dem Tod von den Ungerechten und Ungläubigen. Dies kann eine Perspektive unangenehm, aber sicherlich weniger beängstigend, dass die Bedrohung durch einen schrecklichen Schmerz für die Ewigkeit. " ja, der Gott von den Zeugen Jehovas ist ein Gott der Liebe, und nicht einer, der die Menschen terrorisiert." Die Zeitschrift Veddel mondo Einschuß, definiert: " es gibt, die sagen, dass die Zeugen Jehovas sind die ersten, die den glauben Leben, predigen: nicht rauchen, nicht stapeln sich Reichtum, bleiben weg von den politischen Diskussionen [...] Steuern zahlen. Sie Leben ein Tugendhaftes Leben und ehrlich, sie sind glücklich und nützlich. All dies hat dazu geführt, dass die Leute dies zu schätzen wissen "
