COVID rules blamed for 23% dive in children's development: Study shows cognitive tests slumped between 2018 and 2021, face masks among possible culprits

masked kid school

The study's findings come as parents across the globe grapple with the idea that wearing masks may interfere with the natural learning experiences and communication skills of their young children.
Social distancing measures including face masks are suspected of causing young children's development to have drop by up to 23 per cent during the COVID pandemic, according to a new study.

Brown University scientists Sean CL Deoni, Jennifer Beauchemin, Alexandra Volpe, and Viren D'Sa, penned the review, in conjunction with the global consulting firm Resonance, collecting data from 1,600 children - and their caregivers - who have been enrolled in the study between the ages of 0 and 5 on a rolling basis.

The probe analyzed the cognitive development of the youngsters through infancy, childhood and adolescence, and looked at how average development scores in three key areas had been affected during the COVID era - with shocking results.

Comment: Is anyone surprised by this finding? Of course raising your kids in an isolated bubble, impairing their breathing, severely limiting their social interaction and touching is going to impair their development! From the very beginning of this 'pandemic' of hysteria, children have been sacrificed in order to protect adults (ostensibly). Now we reap what we've sown. Idiocracy awaits!

Poland's education minister has sided with parents seeking to wrestle sex education out of schools, promising that it would now be easier to give "morally corrupting" voluntary programs the boot.

From now on, it would be easier for parents to request that sex education programs are not taught in school, Education Minister Przemyslaw Czarnek announced on Friday, citing a decision adopted at the last cabinet meeting.

"At the request of parents, the education superintendent will be able to block ... the introduction of content into schools that is morally corrupting for children," Czarnek said.

A judge stands up to a hospital: "Step aside" and give a dying man ivermectin

Sun Ng at Edward Hospital in Napierville, Illinois, where officials refused, until ordered by a court, to administer life-saving ivermectin for covid.
Sun Ng, a retired contractor from Hong Kong, traveled to Illinois to celebrate his only granddaughter's first birthday. He got covid and was near death in a Chicago-area hospital. All other options were exhausted, but the hospital refused to give Mr. Ng a generic, FDA-approved drug with an extraordinary safety record that a doctor believed could safe his life.

Finally, a judge asked the right question about ivermectin.

"What's the downside?"

Put another way: If a man is dying of covid in an ICU and all else has been tried, why not order a hospital to give a safe, last-ditch drug?

Edward Hospital, located near Chicago, offered three arguments as to why Sun Ng, seventy-one, should not be given ivermectin:
  • There could be side effects.
  • Ordering ivermectin would violate its policies.
  • Forcing the issue would be "extraordinary" judicial overreach.
On each argument, DuPage County Circuit Court Judge Paul Fullerton firmly disagreed. In a November 5 decision that is a model of rational decision-making in an irrational era, he said in a Zoom hearing:
"I can't think of a more extraordinary situation than when we are talking about a man's life. I am not forcing this hospital to do anything other than to step aside. I am just asking — or not asking — I am ordering through the Court's power to allow Dr. Bain to have the emergency privileges and administer this medicine."

Darrell Brooks charged with five murders in Waukesha, Wisconsin.
The man accused of murdering five after mowing them down in his car during a Wisconsin holiday parade was previously convicted for threatening to bomb a casino, DailyMail.com can reveal.

Darrell Brooks, 39, was busted in March 2007 for calling in a bomb threat to the $43-per-night Nugget Casino Resort in Sparks, Nevada.

The would-be rapper was put on probation after being convicted of conspiring to disturb the peace - a gross misdemeanor - and was banned from the Nugget for life.

The circumstances of why he placed the threatening call are unknown.

His rap sheet also includes a conviction for statutory sexual seduction - the term for sex with a minor aged 16 or under in Nevada law - in January 2007 and another of failing to inform the police of a change of address while a registered sex offender.

The latter two counts both relate to the mother of his child - named in Wisconsin court papers as 'EAP' - who he punched and tried to run over at a gas station in Milwaukee on November 2.

Sputnik vaccine
The Russian-made Sputnik V coronavirus vaccine has shown the best result in preventing Covid-19 mortality, compared to the other leading formulas, according to a comprehensive study based on Hungary's mass-vaccination drive.

The comparative analysis of the performance of different jabs used in the central European country was unveiled, on Thursday, by the Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF), the sovereign wealth fund that bankrolled the jab's development. CEO of the RDIF, Kirill Dmitriev, said in a statement on Thursday:
"With 98% efficacy in preventing COVID-related mortality and 85.7% efficacy against coronavirus infection Sputnik V has demonstrated the best results among five vaccines (Sputnik V, Moderna, Pfizer-BioNTech, Sinopharm and AstraZeneca) administered in EU member state Hungary as part of an independent study based on data from 3.7 million people."

Comment: The latest in hype wars! The 'best of the best' vaccine cannot match natural immunity.

Temple of Luxor during official ceremony for the reopening of ancient road
A restored road connecting two ancient Egyptian temple complexes in Karnak and Luxor has been unveiled in a lavish ceremony aimed at raising the profile of one of Egypt's top tourist spots.

The procession on Thursday to reopen the 1.7-mile (2.7km) road included a reenactment of the ancient Opet festival, in which statues of Theban deities were paraded annually during the New Kingdom era in celebration of fertility and the flooding of the Nile.

The Egyptian president, Abdel Fatah al-Sisi, marched along the road at the start of the ceremony. Pharaonic chariots and more than 400 young performers dressed in pharaonic costumes paraded along the avenue.

The 3,400-year-old road linking the ancient centres of Karnak and Luxor, also known as Road of the Rams or Avenue of the Sphinxes, is lined with hundreds of ram- and human-headed sphinxes, though over the years many have been eroded or destroyed. The road has undergone several restoration efforts since being discovered in 1949, and the latest began in 2017.


BBC: Woman left paralyzed after AstraZeneca Covid vaccine, UK govt delays compensation claim whilst investigating 'possible link'

AstraZeneca victim

Kerry Hurt developed a blot clot on her brain after having her first dose of the AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine
A woman has described how she had to learn how to talk again after she said she was left partially-paralysed due to the side effects of her Covid-19 vaccine.

Kerry Hurt, from Rotherham, suffered a stroke after undergoing surgery for a blood clot two weeks after having the AstraZeneca jab.

Mrs Hurt said it had "devastated" her life but still encouraged people to have the vaccine if they wanted it.

A government spokesperson said severe side effects were "extremely rare" and affected 1 in 100,000 people, external having first doses.

Santa Claus is gay in Norway's latest postal service advert, obviously

A scene from Posten's Christmas advert 'When Harry Met Santa'.
A TV ad for the Norwegian postal service that shows Father Christmas enjoying a festive kiss with a man has gone viral. Santa's coming out makes perfect sense, given his uncanny ability to take on a wide range of identities.

Santa is gay. But you knew that already, right? How could he not be in this, the modern era, the age of woke?

I admit, I'd always presumed there was a Mrs Claus back home somewhere in the Arctic Circle, helping Santa all year long pack presents alongside his elves and reindeer. But apparently not.

It seems Santa was in the closet all along. Maybe that explains why the cuddly couple had no conventionally conceived kids of their own to help out?

Comment: In just the last few months a number of Woke adverts have hit Western TV screens: in the US, a boy wearing a girl's dress being looked after by a wrathful witch baby-sitter was used to promote Twix chocolate bar; Santa being forced to show his vaccine passport to deliver children's presents was the Christmas ad for UK supermarket giant Tesco; and, yet again, a boy wearing his mother's clothes, but this time trashing his home, was used to promote John Lewis home insurance in the UK - this one was later pulled, apparently because the advertising watchdog objected to the implication that the home insurance would cover damage caused by a child who deliberately wrecked their own home:


Top ICU doctor suspended after suing hospital for banning life-saving COVID treatments

icu doctor Dr. Paul Marik
A top critical care physician who filed a lawsuit against Sentara Norfolk General Hospital over its ban on administering life-saving drugs to treat COVID patients, has had his hospital privileges suspended.

Dr. Paul Marik, chief of pulmonary and critical care medicine at Eastern Virginia Medical School and director of the ICU at Sentara Norfolk General Hospital, learned about the 14-day suspension when he arrived to work on Saturday and found a letter on his desk.

The letter was dated Nov. 18 — the same day Marik appeared before a judge in Norfolk Circuit Court requesting a temporary injunction to lift the ban, Marik's attorney said.

Comment: What a hero! Thank goodness there are doctors like him around. He is potentially risking a 35-year career and his livelihood to honor the Hippocratic oath of 'first, do no harm'.

Cull, track and control

covid totalitarianism
The most salient feature of totalitarianism is control of movement, which entails tracking each citizen. Before the internet era, this could only be achieved roughly.

The state knew John Smith lived on Lumumba Street and worked on Stalin Avenue. If Smith wanted to spend a night at a woman's apartment, she had to register him at the neighborhood police station. Big Brother entered the bedroom, but not totally, for he couldn't hear all the sibilants, exhalations and squishes. Daytime movement was generally unmonitored, but the state always knew where you were at night.

Smith's ID card also prevented him from moving to the next city, much less getting a better job there, so he was stuck in Bidenstadt, his hometown.

Smith was free, though, to walk into any state store to browse, for as long as he wanted, its empty shelves.

Now, the state knows where Smith is all the time. At 5:51:15PM, this scowling man is again at Blather Bar, next to Red Levine, who, despite his name, also has alternative right tendencies. Vein-popping fans of Steve Sailer, each has left hundreds of fist-pumping comments, under "sigofnig" and "xxxxrabbi."

For the state, the whole point of tracking is to reward or punish, mostly the latter. In the past, you'd be invited to the police station, or just dragged off the street. Now, punishment can be much tidier, and instant, even for the tiniest sin. That's where the vaccine, green, access or health passport comes in.

Comment: You can follow the herd, you can fight the pied pipers, or you can renounce the whole thing and seek community with others who renounce it and ride this thing out. It won't last much longer...
