Greetings all. Here is my first list of interesting links. These have all been collected during my searches for interesting topics for The Arrow. I can’t use them all, and I hate to lose them. New ones appear every day, so I’m always behind. This is a way I can save them and share them without having to write a long article about them. These won’t come out on any specific day or time. Just whenever I have time to put them together.
If I keep going with this, I’ll probably reserve most of these for paying subscribers.
Whenever you hear about an aviation accident, there is all kinds of speculation in the press as to the cause. By the time the NTSB has done its investigation and found the cause, the crash is old news, so the findings are seldom published. On October 12, 1997, pop singer John Denver nosed his experimental aircraft into the Pacific. I’ve always wondered what went wrong. Now I know. At least he had a few seconds to contemplate his error.
Hypersonic missiles are a major worry in terms of our ability to intercept them. Apparently, Ukraine has intercepted one of Russia’s. If so, this makes me feel a lot better about our own defense capabilities, because if Ukraine has anything that can intercept a hypersonic missile, they got it from us. But I take everything coming out of Ukraine with a large dose of salt.
Speaking of the military, it’s nice to know we have truly intelligent beings guarding a quarter of our nuclear stockpiles. Highly trained dolphins can even intercept enemy divers, attach buoys to them, and float them to the surface for capture.
Who regulates the regulators? Regulation comes about because something bad happens. Everyone says something has to be done. A regulator is created. Things go smoothly, then something bad happens. Everyone screams to tighten the regs. Then rinse and repeat until the regs are so tight nothing bad happens. But neither does anything good.
Extinct bacteria found in the dental plaque of Neanderthals brought back to life. An international team of US and German researchers then spliced the sequence into living bacteria to see what would happen.They found the ancient genes produced a never-before-seen family of natural molecules which researchers have named “paleofurans”. They could be playing with fire here.
In a disgusting display of gaslighting, three of the most notorious lockdown and mandate pushers are now saying, Hey, we never pushed those ideas. We’re blameless. Fauci, Weingarten, and Justin Trudeau—don’t listen to what they say now. Just remember what they said then. This article will jog your memory. The brazenness is breathtaking.
Apparently folks are getting fed up with being lectured to by woke corporations. Maybe the Bud Light boycott is just the start. Anthropologie now the latest to feel the wrath of scorned customers. To quote an old Pete Seeger song… When will they ever learn?
A new study in Nature shows the risk of retinal vascular occlusion in those vaccinated is significantly higher than in the unvaccinated. “Individuals with COVID-19 vaccination had a higher risk of all forms of retinal vascular occlusion in 2 years after vaccination, with an overall hazard ratio of 2.19 [very high] (95% confidence interval 2.00–2.39). The cumulative incidence of retinal vascular occlusion was significantly higher in the vaccinated cohort compared to the unvaccinated cohort, 2 years and 12 weeks after vaccination.”
Interesting short video on why we have crooked teeth while our ancestors didn’t. Not 100 percent correct, in my view. But close. And enlightening. If you’ve got kids, get their jaws to working.
More bad news for mask lovers. New study shows how all kinds of fungi accumulate inside masks when they’re worn for several hours. These data collected in Algeria, which is pretty dry. I wouldn’t be surprised if, after all the dust settles on this, surgeons stop wearing masks. Even if surgeons do stop wearing them, I’m sure a small contingent of virtue signalers will continue masking up.
Anheuser-Busch cans marketing firm that did the Mulvaney ad. According to a press report, “Robert Lachky, a former chief creative officer at Anheuser-Busch, said the decision to work with Mulvaney was a mistake.” Lachky opined that the current marketing team is clueless about the Bud Light customer. ”None of these marketing folks has ever been to a NASCAR race; none has been to a football game or a rodeo,” he said. “That’s insanity. That’s marketing incompetence. Effectively, it took us 20 years to take But Light beer to the No. 1 beer in the country, and it took them one week to dismantle it…” Sounds like Lachky has good sense. No wonder he’s no longer there.
Nice article on how the industrialized world has solved the problem of clean water, but how it now needs to address the problem of clean air. Good ventilation is a necessity to prevent the spread of airborne diseases. Good ventilation is better than wearing a dozen masks, although it doesn’t give one the opportunity to virtue signal.
How does insulin work in the body? Here is a nice explainer article. Sums up the major functions of this master metabolic hormone. Mostly correct, but not totally. This sentence, for example: “In the absence of insulin, the body is not able to utilize glucose as energy in the cells.” Many, if not most, people don’t understand that glucose can get into cells—and does—without the help of insulin. The main reason blood sugar rises in the absence of insulin is NOT that the sugar can’t get into the cells, but that without insulin the liver churns out sugar like crazy under the stimulus of glucagon. Might be worth a deeper dive in The Arrow at some point.
Spying is a risky business. It cost former Iranian defense minister Alireza Akbari his life. If you spy against the US and get caught, you end up in prison for a few years. Or maybe life. In other parts of the world, you get strung up. Or worse. Or get hanged only after a brutal interrogation, during which you’ll end up confessing to anything. It’s a nasty business.
137 years ago today a new patent medicine called Coca Cola hit the market. “On May 8, 1886, pharmacist John Stith Pemberton hauled a jug of his latest patent medicine—a tonic he called Coca-Cola—over to Jacob’s Pharmacy on Peachtree Street. The syrup was mixed with soda water, deemed tasty, and sold for a nickel a glass. Coca-Cola was billed as a versatile drug that could “cure all nervous afflictions—Sick Headache, Neuralgia, Hysteria, Melancholy, Etc. …” During the first year the beverage was on the market, Pemberton sold about nine glasses a day.”
I have my own issues with Robert F. Kennedy, Jr, but he is absolutely spot on with this tweet. Our government continuously lies to us. About almost everything. And most of us just shrug it off instead of grabbing our pitchforks and torches.
Near and dear to my heart. “More than 40 leading scientists have resigned en masse from the editorial board of a top science journal in protest at what they describe as the “greed” of publishing giant Elsevier.” According to this Guardian article “academics around the world have applauded what many hope is the start of a rebellion against the huge profit margins in academic publishing, which outstrip those made by Apple, Google and Amazon.” Profits are obscene and almost all of the content they charge for is paid for by the taxpayers.
This is disgusting and should be the basis for many malpractice suits. Let’s say you are newly pregnant mom-to-be and meet with your ob-gyn doc to discuss what’s best for you and your growing baby going forward. Instead of getting honest advice from your trusted doctor, you get a predetermined conversation about whether you should consent to take the Covid vaccine. Should you refuse your ob-gyn’s recommendation to take the COVID-19 shot, this will likely be recorded in your medical record, potentially shared with governmental officials, and you’ll be asked again to comply in future appointments.1 In what amounts to the ultimate patient betrayal, these pre-arranged COVID-19 “vaccine” discussions are not necessarily the product of your doctor’s independent medical judgment and do not provide informed consent about the known and unknown risks of the shots to both mother and baby. Rather, these conversations are likely fashioned to push the HHS’s/CDC’s pro-COVID-19 “vaccine” narrative, in what seems to be an attempt to capture ob-gyn doctors and their patients across two continents.
Interesting article by Steve Kirsch about how the majority of vaccines—not just the ones for Covid—exceed the so-called safe-limit. The Covid vaccines are in a category of their own.
Pony-tail guy has an interesting short video on Chile’s nationalization of its lithium industry and how it will become another major blow to China.
Another body blow to China. Rice production hits a 20-year low this year. Why? “There’s a strained supply of rice as a result of the ongoing war in Ukraine, as well as weather woes in rice-producing economies like China and Pakistan.” Maybe that explains why Xi is so interested in helping push a negotiated settlement of the war in Ukraine.
Here is a terrific video on how Mexico is becoming the new China…at least for the United States. Even for China, which is setting up companies in Mexico right and left. If Mexico can get past AMLO and gin up industrialization, China will truly be dead in the water.
The front-page headline of today’s Wall Street Journal reads Officials Probe Texas Shooter’s Possible White Supremacy Link. In the past, most shooters have been disturbed white men. But the last handful have been committed by men of one minority race or another. Can’t let that happen, can we? It can’t be that members of these minority groups could have mental issues as well. Nope. Got to get the white supremacy issue in there. The list of victims of the Allen, TX mall shooting has not been released, but—since the shooter jumped out of his car and started firing into the crowd—I’d be willing to bet most, if not all, of the victims are white. Why would a white supremacist do that?
Inside today’s WSJ is an article about how despite the lockdowns being over, the damage from them continues. “Developing countries are seeing a resurgence of deadlier infectious diseases such as cholera, tuberculosis, measles and polio. In the U.S., young people are experiencing persistent problems that were aggravated by lockdowns including increased deaths, mental illness, drug overdoses and a detachment from the workforce. Call the phenomenon “long Covid lockdowns.” ” Officials are trying to absolve themselves of responsibility for the post-Covid malaise by disclaiming the lockdowns. “Show me a school that I shut down and show me a factory that I shut down,” Anthony Fauci told the New York Times Magazine’s David Wallace-Wells last month. “Never. I never did.” I hope we’ve learned from all this and that it never happens again. But I suspect it will. And you have everyone still wearing a mask to thank for it in advance.
Based on his research, Dr. Peter McCullough believes “Novavax is safer than the genetic vaccines. All the COVID-19 vaccines are unnecessary and not effective in reducing serious outcomes. Novavax, however, offers a safer alternative in the situation of forced vaccination that cannot be avoided.” In his view, if circumstances force you into getting vaccinated, Novavax is the best option.
A Midwestern Doctor writes about the firing of Tucker Carlson in an article titled Big Pharma's Destruction of American Journalism. A couple of week’s before the Tuckster’s firing, I watched a podcast with him in which he said he had not taken the Covid vaccine. Which explains why he did his broadcasts from his home studio instead of in the Fox studios, which had a vaccine mandate. This monologue of his was probably the one that got him fired. It’s difficult to imagine how much money Big Pharma spends on advertising. Even on Fox. I’m sure they were not happy with Tucker’s monologue above.
Why are so many NAFLD (non-alcoholic fatty liver disorder) therapeutics failing in clinical trials. I am going to address this one in The Arrow. In my view, the various drugs are failing because they ignore the physiology involved.
I just discovered Yeonmi Park, whom I wrote about here, has a new book out. I just downloaded it on Kindle. The article I wrote about was probably excerpted from her new book.
Finally, a reader sent me an article by a guy who, like me, had tried to read War and Peace many times. And like me, he finally made it through. (I’m now working on my 2nd go round, which is even better than the first.) Based on the quotes he discusses, sounds to me like he had a crappy translation. He should read it again. The article did give me a couple of tips on two Somerset Maugham novels I might pick up.
That’s about it for today. Let me know in the comments what you think of this experiment. Keep it going? Ditch it? Do more? Do less?
I love this, Dr. Eades. I learn many things from the work you put into the Arrow. Much appreciated. I am a retired physician and I've been teaching on video since the start of the Covidian Complex. This has evolved into short form video across several social media platforms. I've done video teaching from several editions of the Arrow with the challenge being compiling the information into a 3-5 minute video. I reference you when discussing Arrow issues so perhaps I've drummed up some subscribers for you. As a retired OB/GYN, I want to discuss the narrative from ABOG regarding the vaccines that was sent to every practicing OB/GYN only to find out they were getting a kick back for directing the narrative of what their Diplomates were required to "tell" their patients. I have to figure out how to word my comments without running afoul of the censorship algorithms. I had a video taken down in November for telling people what practicing physicians do when they get Covid. I also had a video taken down for discussing a paper published in October revealing the fact that about 50% of clinical studies since 1980 were factually inaccurate. That one was flagged for "inauthenticity" even though I was basically reading word for word what was a published review article on the invalidity of so many clinical studies funded by the pharmaceutical industry. Again, thanks so much for all you do. Carry on!
Thank you, Mike, for those links. I feel like you help expand my brain and my learning about many things random and of interest that I might never have realized or thought about.
