Yes, We have No Seeds By John Steele

     I remember my grandmother telling me about the Victory Gardens people had during World War I and II. Well, many people are turning back to that, but there is one problem: seeds:

     I have heard that the hardware shops in Oz are restricting the sale of seeds. This does not surprise me, since this is already being done by the monopoly sellers in America, and whatever bad that happens there, always migrates here like … well a plague:

Billy Gates Lets it Slip By Peter Ewer

     We are all speculating regarding the present coronavirus freak-out, about what comes next. What is the less-than-hidden agenda, which must be bad and New Wold Orderly. Bill at the Gates may be able to help us here:
  https://off-guardian.org/2020/04/04/did-bill-gates-just-reveal-the-reason-behind-the-lock-downs/

“On March 24 Bill Gates gave a highly revelatory 50-minute interview (above) to Chris Anderson. Anderson is the Curator of TED, the non-profit that runs the TED Talks. Anderson asked Gates at 3:49 in the video of the interview – which is quickly climbing to three million views – about a ‘Perspective’ article by Gates that was published February 28 in the New England Journal of Medicine. “You wrote that this could be the once-in-a-century pandemic that people have been fearing. Is that how you think of it, still?” queried Anderson. “Well, it’s awful to say this but, we could have a respiratory virus whose case fatality rate was even higher. If this was something like smallpox, that kills 30 percent of people. So, this is horrific,” responded Gates. “But, in fact, most people even who get the COVID disease are able to survive. So. in that, it’s quite infectious – way more infectious than MERS [Middle East Respiratory Syndrome] or SARS [Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome] were. [But] it’s not as fatal as they were. And yet the disruption we’re seeing in order to knock it down is really completely unprecedented.” Gates reiterates the dire consequences for the global economy later in the interview. “We need a clear message about that,” Gates said starting at 26:52. “It is really tragic that the economic effects of this are very dramatic. I mean, nothing like this has ever happened to the economy in our lifetimes. But … bringing the economy back and doing [sic] money, that’s more of a reversible thing than bringing people back to life. So we’re going to take the pain in the economic dimension, huge pain, in order to minimize the pain in disease and death dimension.” Right after that, at 34:14, Gates talked about how he sees things rolling out from there. “Eventually what we’ll

Film Your Hospital? By Chris Knight

     There is a Twitter twit hashtag, something that always reminds me of hash browns, #filmyourhospital, where people go to their hospital (question: violating quarantine?) and film activity, all allegedly showing relatively empty hospitals. Of course, people are in lock down, elective surgery has ben cancelled, and Suzy soccer mom types, taking Suzy to hospital because she fell over and skinned her knee, are no longer there. This, though, has been advanced as an argument by the coronaviral-sceptics to show that there is no crisis as all, that the emergency tents seen in previous flue seasons are not there, so this is all a storm in a teacup, or whatever the microbiological metaphor is. I have no full explanation for this. The sceptics could be right – I am keeping an open mind about this is coverage, and considering all points of view. But it is odd and definitely something to be kept monitoring.

The Apocalyptic Workout By John Steele

     No gym? No problem! The site below gives some tips on how to work out without a gym, and I know many of our readers are missing their workouts to keep fit and strong. Never mind, you can do well on body weight exercises, even when you are getting on a bit, and weight bearing exercise is good for dealing with bone degeneration and osteoarthritis. The basic exercises can be done with no weights, or using things just lying around, but, see a doctor first to get the ok. Push-ups, doing then on the knees until strong enough, calf raises on steps, body weight squats, and maybe using environmental objects, pullups from sturdy trees, lifting a bag with rocks to do overhead presses and biceps curls. Even power walking for those who cannot do any of this, will be find. Since we are imprisoned, you will need to walk around your cell. You are only limited by your imagination.

     Here out in the Victorian scrub, I have been in lockdown for years, and train daily, about 3.30 pm each day. Today, being Sunday, my day of “rest,” I do 4,000 calf raises off a log, and at least 1,000 squats, with a rotten tree trunk on my back. Then Bowie knife training. It entertains the lizards and crows, who watch the bush madman in amusement. But, it keeps my body strong and like steel, which is where I get my name.

Climate Change and the Coronavirus By James Reed

     Is there a link between the climate change agenda, and the coronavirus pandemic social controls? Here below an article gives one hint, with the globalist World Economic Forum claiming that there will be a flow-on effect from the social control measures that the public will be trained to put up with, translating into climate change action:
  https://www.technocracy.news/wef-confirms-link-between-pandemic-and-climate-change-agenda/

“While we are reeling in the shock of what is happening around us and coming to terms with our new reality, we could seize this moment as a unique window of opportunity to re-build our society and economy as we want it. With scientists warning we have 10 years left to avoid the worst consequences of climate change, this could offer an opportunity to fix the climate crisis before it's too late. A number of shifts brought on by the COVID-19 emergency lay the groundwork for the transformation required. Here are five actions we should take. We have known about the risk of a global pandemic for years: just see Bill Gates declare during a 2015 Ted Talk that “If anything kills over 10 million people in the next few decades, it is most likely to be a highly infectious virus… We should be concerned. But in fact we can build a really good response system.” Yet it took an unfolding disaster to prompt governments, businesses and individuals to act at the scale required. Climate change similarly poses a major threat to human lives and urgently requires a comprehensive response. A study published in the medical journal the Lancet predicts 500,000 adult deaths caused by climate change by 2050. If the pandemic teaches us to acknowledge our vulnerability to high-impact shocks such as pandemics and climate-related disasters, we will be infinitely better placed to prepare for them.

Where Has All of this Money Come From? Where Will it Go? By James Reed

     This is quoted from Rite-On as at March 19,  2020, and   no doubt there have been a  few increases since that date. Question:  where did the money come from?  Did they borrow from the World bank; the IMF or other Banks?  Which of these or any other sources had such amounts available?  Can anyone help? Or is it all going to be just put on the tab, of endless growing debt?  The economic impact as at 19 March 2020 in USD;

•    The United States, announced a $1 trillion economic package that will include $500 billion in direct payments to taxpayers. The U.S. is also planning $500 billion in loans for businesses. The Federal Reserve announced it will create an emergency lending facility to help the country’s short-term credit market.
•    Canada will spend an initial $18.6 billion in support to families and businesses affected by the outbreak. The country also pledged about $37 billion in tax deferrals to help Canadians and businesses survive the economic trouble.
•    The European Union said it would use up to $41 billion for measures to counteract the economic consequences of the coronavirus crisis. Meanwhile, the European Central Bank announced it will buy up to $830 billion government and corporate bonds and other assets in a bid to calm the continent’s financial markets.
•    In the United Kingdom, the government announced $398 billion for loans and guarantees. Smaller businesses will be granted access to cash grants of more than $28,000 to tackle the coronavirus pandemic.
•    German Chancellor Angela Merkel announced that her country is facing the worst crisis since the end of World War II and said her government will do “whatever it takes” to keep its businesses afloat. The country pledged unlimited cash to businesses hit by the crisis.
•    In France, a country severely affected by the coronavirus outbreak, lawmakers pledged around $50 billion in immediate aid for businesses and employees hit by the pandemic which is expected to shrink the French gross domestic product by 1% in 2020.
•    In Austria, the government announced it will spend up to $42 billion to secure jobs and support businesses. The government will provide up to $10 billion in guarantees and warranties, more than $16 billion in emergency aid and more than $10 billion in tax deferrals.
•    Spain said it will support its economy with a 200 billion euro (about $219 billion) aid package. The country will pay benefits to workers temporarily laid off and will suspend mortgage payments for those affected by the crisis.
•    The Netherlands will provide up to $22 billion to businesses as part of an emergency package in an effort to help workers and lower the impact of the COVID-19 crisis.
•    Italy, the country most severely affected by the coronavirus pandemic in Europe so far, has adopted an emergency plan of $28 billion to support its economy. The measure is necessary in order to soften the blow taken by a society forced to shut down in a national quarantine.
•    Portugal will also spend $10 billion on an emergency package. About $5.6 billion will be used as fiscal stimulus, $3.2 billion for state-backed credit guarantees and about $1 billion for social security payments.
•    Norway will offer companies at least $9.7 billion in funding in order to guarantee loans and bond issues to support business and the economy. Also, payments of payroll taxes can be postponed.
•    While no specific measures have yet been announced for Ireland, the country pledged more than $3 billion earlier this month to fight against the health crisis and support sick pay and business affected by COVID-19.
•    Sweden also launched a coronavirus crisis package of more than $30 billion. The country is looking at paying for sick leave through the months of April and May and supporting the cost for temporary redundancies during the crisis.
•    Denmark also released $30 billion for banks to lend to businesses during the pandemic.
•    Australia’s government announced it is lowering interest rates while also injecting about $56 billion (this has since been increased)  into the economy, Reuters reported.
•    In Japan, the government passed a $10 billion package earlier in March for small and medium-sized businesses, as well as self-employed workers affected by the coronavirus. The government on Thursday formed a panel of ministers to examine a broader package to help the economy.

How Low Can Anarcho-Tyranny Go? By James Reed

     None of this is in Australia yet, and hopefully we will never get to this level, not merely of simply shooting those who do not do what the state dictates, but the abandonment of fundamental legal protections, such as trial by jury, as has been done in Scotland:

“The new legal powers sought by Scotland’s devolved law-makers undermine ideas of justice in place for hundreds of years, according to the Scottish Criminal Bar Association.

Among a long list of changes, the Bill seeks to:

The Welfare State Set to Topple By Brian Simpson

     With all of this free communist welfare money being splashed around like there is no tomorrow, where will this lead? Why the collapse of the welfare state, naturally, with Finland being one of the early cabs off the ranks:
  https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2020-04-02/finland-is-told-its-welfare-state-can-t-cope-with-virus-fallout

“One of the world’s best-funded welfare states is starting to crack as the fallout of the coronavirus triggers mass unemployment. Finland’s system of jobless benefits can’t cope with the sudden surge in demand, the country’s biggest unemployment fund, YTK, said. There are more than 300,000 Finns who suddenly find themselves without work, either through temporary layoffs or outright job cuts. A large chunk of them may have to wait until next year to get their first benefit payment, YTK said. Money’s not the problem, Managing Director Sanna Alamaki said in letters to members sent through April 1. It’s “that the benefit applications can’t be processed and, consequently, money can’t be paid out quickly enough,” she said. YTK is expecting “a flood” of more than 100,000 applications through April. That’s double the number it would process during an average year. Even if it triples staff, people would still face a three-month wait for their jobless benefit, YTK said. That exceeds the legal limit of 30 days. Finns, along with their Nordic neighbors, rely on a generous welfare system to ensure that those who drop off payrolls still get some form of monthly support. When that safety net starts to crack, it risks upending the social model that underpins the high levels of trust in government typical to the Nordics. The fund, which represents 20% of wage earners in Finland, called on the government to help, and asked that it provide subsidies to companies laying off workers so that they still get paid through the payroll. In a letter to members, the fund said more than 270,000 members are at risk of losing their jobs. That compares with the 187,000 people who were unemployed in February, according to official statistics.”

More on 5 G and the Coronavirus: Burning Towers By Brian Simpson

     It was not an April Fool’s joke: there is a countercultural belief that 5 G technology has caused the coronavirus pandemic. While it is true that there is an on-going debate about the effects of 5 G on human health, there is no evidence that 5 G has the same effects as seen by the coronavirus, although, if 5 G does impact upon human health, this will be one further factor lowering human immunity and health, this having an indirect impact.     Anyway, some people are going over the top on this, literally burning down towers.
  https://www.thesun.co.uk/tech/11311306/bizarre-5g-coronavirus-conspiracy-theory-whatsapp/

  https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/11320198/coronavirus-5g-conspiracy-theory-masts/

“Conspiracy nuts are reportedly setting phone masts alight and targeting engineers after a bizarre claim 5G "radiation" caused the deadly coronavirus spread. The theory originated last month after a video filmed at a US health conference claimed Africa was not as affected by the disease because it is "not a 5G region". The myth was quickly debunked after the World Health Organisation confirmed there were thousands of Covid-19 cases in Africa. The government has also confirmed there is "no evidence to suggest that 5G has anything to do with Covid-19". Celebs have been slammed for sharing the conspiracy theory, including Jason Gardiner and Callum Best, who posted similar claims that 5G can impact the immune system. But the claims have still been doing the rounds on WhatsApp via a lengthy voice note - with phone masts now being set alight in the UK. Engineers are now also being targeted with social media users encouraging each other to destroy the masts in a Stop 5G Facebook group.

After Humans, the Rule of Goats By James Reed

     It is a vision out of some pos-apocalyptic movie, where all, or most of the human race has died off; deserted of humans, wild goats now roam the streets of Wales:
  https://edition.cnn.com/2020/03/31/europe/wild-goats-wales-streets-lockdown-scli-gbr/index.html

“A coastal town in north Wales has found a whole new meaning to the phrase herd immunity, after goats were spotted roaming its quiet streets. It comes just days after British Prime Minister Boris Johnson introduced tighter restrictions around social movement last week in a bid to limit the spread of coronavirus. Residents spotted herds of goats strolling around Llandudno on Friday and over the weekend, after more than a dozen of the animals ventured down from the Great Orme headland and roamed the streets of the coastal town.”

The Surveillance State Forever By James Reed

     Things have changed, for the absolute worst, and it is likely that the surveillance state will be forever, since the psychopathic global elites who rule our local elites, whatever the merits of all the present restrictions, are not likely to want to give up power. It will be just a depicted in the film version of The Lord of the Rings, where all of the bad guys wanted the ring of power, a symbol, of, naturally, power. His guy would know:
  https://thenextweb.com/neural/2020/03/25/snowden-warns-the-surveillance-states-were-creating-now-will-outlast-the-coronavirus/

“Governments around the world are using high-tech surveillance measures to combat the coronavirus outbreak. But are they worth it? Edward Snowden doesn’t think so. The former CIA contractor, whose leaks exposed the scale of spying programs in the US, warns that once this tech is taken out of the box, it will be hard to put it back. “When we see emergency measures passed, particularly today, they tend to be sticky,” Snowden said in an interview with the Copenhagen International Documentary Film Festival. The emergency tends to be expanded. Then the authorities become comfortable with some new power. They start to like it. Supporters of the draconian measures argue that normal rules are not enough during a pandemic and that the long-term risks can be addressed once the outbreak is contained. But a brief suspension of civil liberties can quickly be extended. Security services will soon find new uses for the tech. And when the crisis passes, governments can impose new laws that make the emergency rules permanent and exploit them to crack down on dissent and political opposition. Take the proposals to monitor the outbreak by tracking mobile phone location data. This could prove a powerful method of tracing the spread of the virus and the movements of people who have it. But it will also be a tempting tool to track terrorists — or any other potential enemies of the states.

Vitamin C to the Rescue? By Mrs Vera West

     Of course, this is not medical or health advise, merely reporting news, but vitamin C is a favourite amongst people from our side of politics to fight bugs. The establishment say that vitamin C is of only limited use in dealing with flues and the common cold, but that does not phase me, as I shove down spoonful’s of it, probably too much for my ageing kidneys. However, the Chinese are investigating the role that C may play in tackling the corona bug.
  https://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-8067189/Chinas-doctors-racing-Vitamin-C-beat-coronavirus.html

“In China, a study is under way to see if high doses of vitamin C can help fight off coronavirus (officially known as COVID-19). Scientists at the Zhongnan Hospital of Wuhan University are testing its effects on 120 patients who have the virus, giving them daily infusions of 24g of vitamin C for seven days. Results have not yet been published. The dosage being used in China is around 60 times as much as the NHS daily recommended amount and 24 times the amount trialled against colds in reviews by Cochrane. In tests, vitamin C has worked against every virus — if given in sufficient concentration, says Dr Levy. Dr Mike Skinner, a virologist at Imperial College London, says we won’t know vitamin C’s value against coronavirus for some time, and says the dose being tested is ‘massive’. ‘They’re doing the trial,’ says Dr Skinner ‘Let’s see if it has any benefit.’”

The Golden Arches of Processed Food, Part By Mrs Vera West

     At least there are some amusing symbolic, and totally pointless virtual signalling during these times of collective insanity, of the coronavirus plague, or whatever. Will changing symbols change behaviour? Are viruses listening, relaxed  in their microscopic safe spaces?
  https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8167067/McDonalds-Audi-Volkswagen-brands-creating-social-distancing-logos.html

“McDonald's, Audi, and Volkswagen are the among the brands to have created 'social distancing' versions of their iconic logos. The term has become popularised because of the rampant spread of coronavirus around the world. People are being advised by national governments to stand around 6 feet apart from each other to minimise the risk of catching the potentially deadly virus. Last week, McDonald's in Brazil pulled apart their iconic golden arches logo in a picture which was posted on their Facebook page. The tweaked logo led to criticism from Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders. He responded by saying: '@McDonalds give your workers paid sick leave'. Car brand Audi released a video showing its logo with the four rings separated as they called on customers to keep their distance. Similarly, Volkswagen, whose parent company owns Audi, promoted a similar video where they separated the V and W in their logo. And Coca-Cola is currently running an advert in the now-deserted Times Square in New York showing space between each of the letters of its logo. It is accompanied by the slogan, 'Staying apart is the best way to stay connected.' And while sportswear brand Nike has not tweaked its logo it launched a social media campaign with a strapline which read, 'If you ever dreamed of playing for millions around the world, now is your chance. Play inside, play for the world.' McDonald's has been forced to close all its stores in the UK and the US in response to the coronavirus outbreak.”

Now is the Time to Ban Breathing! By Brian Simpson

     It is the same kind of reasoning employed in a whole range of policies in the modern liberal state; something causes a problem, so ban it. Take firearms for example. The same causal principle lies behind the present social distancing measures: locate the cause, then ban it. And, in many cases that makes sense. But now consider this:
  https://www.sciencenews.org/article/coronavirus-covid-19-breathing-talking-enough-spread-airborne

“The coronavirus that causes COVID-19 may spread through the air in tiny particles that infected people exhale during normal breathing and speech. Until now, experts have said that the virus, called SARS-CoV-2, doesn’t spread through the air in that way, but rather through relatively large droplets released when people cough or sneeze. Those droplets can contaminate surfaces or objects and infect people who touch the surface and then touch their faces. Large droplets are still a means of infection, but researchers now say that tiny airborne particles may also carry infectious virus. “Currently available research supports the possibility that SARS-CoV-2 could be spread via bioaerosols generated directly by patients’ exhalation,” researchers from the U.S. National Academies of Science, Engineering and Medicine wrote in an April 1 report to the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy. If the coronavirus is airborne, that could help explain why it is so contagious, and can spread before people have symptoms (SN: 3/13/20). As of April 2, more than 1 million people worldwide are confirmed to have COVID-19, with nearly a quarter of those cases in the United States, according to tracking by Johns Hopkins University. More than 50,000 people have died worldwide, including more than 5,600 people in the United States. Wearing surgical masks can cut down on the amount of virus that infected people spread, the expert panel says, citing an unpublished study from the University of Hong Kong. The letter does not address whether wearing a mask will protect the person wearing the mask from catching the illness (SN: 3/27/20). How much virus a person must breathe in to get infected isn’t known. The report also notes that genetic material from the virus was detected more than two meters (six feet) away from patients’ hospital beds. That finding could indicate that physical distancing by at least two meters may not be enough to limit spread of the virus. Whether infectious virus could be carried that far or if the genetic material is from dead viruses isn’t yet known.”

Lock Down or be Shot Down! By Paul Walker

     How far can anarcho-tyranny go? On the spot fines are nothing when the state can simply shoot you, on the spot!
  https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2020/04/dead-duterte-warns-violating-lockdown-200401164531160.html

“Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte has warned he would order the country's police and military to shoot dead anyone "who creates trouble" during a month-long lockdown of the island of Luzon enforced to halt the spread of the coronavirus. "Let this be a warning to all. Follow the government at this time because it is critical that we have order," he said in a late-night televised national address on Wednesday. "And do not harm the health workers, the doctors ... because that is a serious crime. My orders to the police and the military, if anyone creates trouble, and their lives are in danger: shoot them dead." "Do not intimidate the government. Do not challenge the government. You will lose," he added in Filipino and English. Duterte's warning came after residents of a slum in Manila's Quezon City staged a protest along a highway near their shanty houses, claiming they had not received any food packs and other relief supplies since the lockdown began more than two weeks ago. Village security officers and police urged the residents to go back to their homes, but they refused, a police report said. Police broke up the protest and arrested 20 people, the report added.”

Mortgage or Death Age By James Reed

     The French word for “dead” is “mort,” and it is no surprise that our English word “mortgage” also has the connotations of death built into it. This is the field where we conspiracy theorists belong, not contesting biochemistry and things we failed at high school science. To my mind it does not matter what the causes of the present so-called pandemic pandemonium are, bioweapon, natural evolution of nasty bugs, 5 G or whatever. I am agnostic about the biology and causation. But not so the economic effects, which are real. For the US, a mortgage crisis is underway, and this alone could ring in another GFC, not KFC, apart from every other economic mystery and misery:
  https://www.zerohedge.com/economics/here-comes-next-crisis-30-all-mortgages-will-default-biggest-wave-delinquencies-history

“Unlike in the 2008 financial crisis when a glut of subprime debt, layered with trillions in CDOs and CDO squareds, sent home prices to stratospheric levels before everything crashed scarring an entire generation of homebuyers, this time the housing sector is facing a far more conventional problem: the sudden and unpredictable inability of mortgage borrowers to make their scheduled monthly payments as the entire economy grinds to a halt due to the coronavirus pandemic. And unfortunately this time the crisis will be far worse, because as Bloomberg reports mortgage lenders are preparing for the biggest wave of delinquencies in history. And unless the plan to buy time works - and as we reported earlier there is a distinct possibility the Treasury's plan to provide much needed liquidity to America's small businesses may be on the verge of collapse - an even worse crisis may be coming: mass foreclosures and mortgage market mayhem. Borrowers who lost income from the coronavirus, which is already a skyrocketing number as the 10 million new jobless claims in the past two weeks attests, can ask to skip payments for as many as 180 days at a time on federally backed mortgages, and avoid penalties and a hit to their credit scores. But as Bloomberg notes, it’s not a payment holiday and eventually homeowners they’ll have to make it all up. According to estimates by Moody's Analytics chief economist Mark Zandi, as many as 30% of Americans with home loans – about 15 million households – could stop paying if the U.S. economy remains closed through the summer or beyond.

The Infection Myth? By Brian Simpson

     Here at ALOR.org, we are trying to cover all bases on the coronavirus pandemic, surely the most socially disruptive thing to impact upon normal social life. We have seen some of the absurd consequences of social distancing across the world, and have examined the coming economic impacts of a prolonged crisis. But there is little available from the outright “false flag” school, that conspiratorial theorists from the Dissent Right, know and love. You know, the type of argument that sees some shooting event as involving method actors, and then the proponent gets sued, goes bankrupt, then silent. However, we don’t have that in this area of debate, but there is still some level of scepticism out there.

     Here is sceptical material by David Crowe, which goes to the heart of the matter, attacking the RNA tests associated with Cov-19. The tests are allegedly inaccurate, and generate false positives, making the extent of the prevalence of the infection spread, greater than it should in reality be. The core of the problem is the failure to isolate the actual RNA of the alleged virus, Crowe believes:

Is a Light Year Enough for Social Distancing? By Brian Simpson

     Everyone is practicing social distancing, the new “safe sex” of our age, for those who remember what things were like in the AIDS panic back in the 1980s. But, social distancing must be done, if not yet at the point of a bayonet, then at least for now, at the point of an on-the-spot-fine. That being so, is the present distance enough? Should it be over four times as much? Certainly, a light year, the distance light travels in a year, would do the trick, in principle, but, hey, this is a pandemic, and there is no room here for light-heartedness, pun intended.
  https://www.msn.com/en-us/health/health-news/is-6-feet-enough-for-social-distancing-an-mit-researcher-says-droplets-carrying-coronavirus-can-travel-up-to-27-feet/ar-BB11Ww71

  https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jama/fullarticle/2763852

“Lydia Bourouiba, an associate professor at MIT, has researched the dynamics of exhalations (coughs and sneezes, for instance) for years at The Fluid Dynamics of Disease Transmission Laboratory and found exhalations cause gaseous clouds that can travel up to 27 feet. Her research could have implications for the global COVID-19 pandemic, though measures called for by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization call for six and three feet of space, respectively.  “There’s an urgency in revising the guidelines currently being given by the WHO and the CDC on the needs for protective equipment, particularly for the frontline health care workers,” Bourouiba told USA TODAY. Bourouiba’s research calls for better measures to protect health care workers and, potentially, more distance from infected people who are coughing or sneezing. She said current guidelines are based on “large droplets” as the method of transmission for the virus and the idea that those large droplets can only go a certain distance. In a Journal of the American Medical Association article published last week, Bourouiba said peak exhalation speeds can reach 33 to 100 feet per second and "currently used surgical and N95 masks are not tested for these potential characteristics of respiratory emissions." The idea that droplets "hit a virtual wall and stop there and after that we are safe," is not based on evidence found in her research, Bourouiba said, and also not based on "evidence that we have about COVID transmission."

Petrol Prices Down, House Prices, Down, Down, By Peter Bennett

     Great news! Petrol prices are way down, dirt cheap, 50 cents a litre in some places, due to geo-politics and the coronavirus, which is an unexpected positive. Now to go on a long road trip. Wait, we are imprisoned in our homes under self-arrest. So, it is all for nothing. At least I can fill up the tank of the old Holden, one, and hope that no roaming gangs milk my tank. No, petrol is too cheap.

Gun Control Defies the Laws of Supply and Demand! By John Steele

     You can be sure that if a collapse of the world was at hand, then the last act of the system would be to disarm we the people. I recall my father telling me that during World War II, whether this was law or not, when it looked like the Japanese were set to invade Australia, the local cops went about to collect guns from every one who had them. The guns were put in holding cells, because there was a concern that people might fight back. I see no reason to disbelieve the old guy, so I was not surprised to read that in the present day, as more citizens are wanting guns, the authorities just close it all down:

Police Minister Lisa Neville said at a press conference on Tuesday the number of people attempting to access firearms and ammunition had doubled. The minister and the National Cabinet decided to pause the sales of firearms and ammunition for sporting or recreational purposes. They fear an increased amount of weapons on the street would be dangerous as tensions rise and firearms may be stockpiled or accessed by criminals. We're responding to an increase in demand for firearms and ammunition across the country by doing what we can to protect licensed firearm owners and dealers as well as the broader community,' she said. 'We sincerely hope that Victoria Police does not have to issue one of these on the spot fines, and people do the right thing. 'But for those that don't, they will be dealt with.' The minister said the fear of domestic violence figures increasing as the state shuts down was another factor behind the pause of firearm sales. The ban will exclude farmers, rural landholders, professional vermin control staff and armed guards as their jobs are considered essential and require them to have access to firearms. The Queensland Government have banned firearms dealers from remaining open as they have been declared 'non-essential services.' In Western Australia, a similar regulation has been implemented but primary producers, professional pest shooters and Indigenous people practising native title rights to hunt are allowed to access firearms and ammunition.”
