Time Restricted Eating By Mrs Vera West

     The merits of fasting have been known for thousands of years by religious folk both West and East. Indeed, the feast/feast way of doing things was the main way of subsistence in the ancient past, and no doubt this is where humanity will return. But until that happy time, here is some info on the modern view of this, time restricted eating:
  https://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2020/03/12/time-restricted-eating-autophagy-alzheimers.aspx?cid_source=dnl&cid_medium=email&cid_content=art1HL&cid=20200312Z1&et_cid=DM478075&et_rid=828032453

“Research overwhelmingly supports the notion that ditching the “three square meals a day” approach in favor of time-restricted eating (also referred to as intermittent fasting) can do wonders for your health, as your body simply cannot function optimally when there’s a continuous supply of calories coming in. The cycling of feasting (feeding) and famine (fasting) mimics the eating habits of our ancestors and restores your body to a more natural state that allows a whole host of biochemical benefits to occur. It’s a powerful approach that not only facilitates weight loss, but also helps reduce your risk of chronic diseases like Type 2 diabetes, heart disease, cancer and Alzheimer’s. While there are many variations, time-restricted eating typically involves not eating for at least 14 consecutive hours a day. However, not eating for 16 to 20 hours is likely closer to a metabolic ideal. This means you eat all of your meals for the day within a four- to eight-hour window. Among the many benefits of time-restricted eating is the upregulation of autophagy and mitophagy — natural cleansing processes necessary for optimal cellular renewal and function. In a January 2020 review paper,1 researchers explain how caloric restriction helps combat Alzheimer’s specifically, through these autophagy pathways.

Vitamin C, Genetics and the Coronavirus Pandemic By Brian Simpson

     There is a thought-provoking article by Lance Welton at vDare.com, Welton taking the line that there are racial differences in the susceptibility to Covid-19 infection, with East Asian being at risk, Africans and White Europeans less so. In his latest piece he speculates about one hypothesis explaining this, being a genetically based proficiency in maintaining vitamin C levels in the blood:
  https://vdare.com/articles/coronavirus-and-vitamin-c-is-this-why-israel-closed-its-borders?scroll_to_paragraph=6

“This has been explored in detail by the health journalist Bill Sardi [Health Inheritance: Asians Have Lower Vitamin C Blood Levels; More Prone To Coronavirus & Other Infections, LewRockwell.com, March 7, 2020].
Maintaining healthy Vitamin C levels is extremely important. Vitamin C is an anti-oxidant, crucial because oxidization results in damage to cells and, so, a reduced ability to fight off infection. It is also crucial in repairing cells and maintaining a strong immune system. Vitamin C is obtained from certain kinds of fruit (most obviously oranges) and some vegetables, such as broccoli. People who don’t get enough of it are prone to cancer, heart problems, brain degeneration and, in extreme cases, scurvy. However, maintaining Vitamin C in the blood isn’t solely a matter of diet. Genetics plays its part as well. Some people can maintain a high level of Vitamin C without eating that much fruit at all. It depends on the form of Haptoglobin which they carry: Hp 1-1, Hp 2-1, or Hp 2-2. Haptoglobin (HAPTO-G) is a protein in the blood that binds to haemoglobin, this being the red protein in blood cells that carries oxygen and iron. Haptoglobin destroys excess iron, limits the amount of (potentially damaging) unbound iron, and reduces the amount of iron lost in the kidneys. Hp 2-2 doesn’t bind as well as the other two. The result of this is excess iron in the blood. This excess iron oxidates—rusts—in response to oxygen, setting off a process that also causes the Vitamin C to oxidate. This reduces the efficacy of the Vitamin C, causing the person with this form of HAPTO-G to have a less effective immune system.

Israel and the Coronavirus By Brian Simpson

     It is wise to pay close attention to the policies of the state of Israel, since this nation, above all others has excellent survival instincts, and almost always gets things right. Take their response to the coronavirus pandemic:
  https://www.timesofisrael.com/israel-closes-schools-universities-as-netanyahu-issues-dire-coronavirus-warning/

“Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced Thursday that Israel would be closing schools and universities effective Friday as part of measures to curb the spread of the coronavirus, calling the pandemic “a global event unlike anything” the country had ever seen. “We are closing the schools and the universities,” the premier announced on live television. He said the closure didn’t include preschools and kindergartens, special education and boarding schools, adding that a decision would be made for those institutions soon. In a prime-time speech from the Prime Minister’s Office in Jerusalem, Netanyahu warned that “the potential number of deaths is very high and we must take action to prevent that.” He said the mortality rate from the virus, which he put at between two and four percent, was “very high.” There have so far been no deaths from the virus in Israel, where there have been 109 confirmed cases. “We are in the midst of a global event unlike anything else in the history of the state’s existence,” he said, offering a dire warning of the potential death toll if most of the population is infected and even comparing the situation to the 1918 Spanish Flu, which infected some 500 million people — 27% of the world’s population at the time — and killed between 17 and 50 million people, according to estimations.”

The Purge and Coronavirus By Brian Simpson

     Even if the coronavirus is an escaped bioweapon, made by the Chinese, somehow blaming ordinary Chinese people for this, is just insane. They are pawns in the game of the globalists as much as we are. Well, noble sentiments, but one of the by-products of plurality is that diverse people will have diverse reactions, and in LA Asians fear that they will be targeted if things get to zombie apocalypse levels. In fact, the metaphor used in the article featured here, is  “The Purge,” a TV show actually involving hunting down people and purging them:
  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Purge
  https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/gun-sales-soar-among-asian-americans-after-virus-related-attacks

“The threat of Covid-19 hate crimes across the country is surging this week as Asian Americans in San Gabriel Valley, a region east of Los Angeles, are loading up on weapons as concerns they could be targeted. CBS Los Angeles reported this week that gun sales among Asians are rising in San Gabriel Valley as they believe the pandemic could trigger hate crimes against them. David Liu, the owner of Arcadia Firearm & Safety, said gun sales have jumped in the last two weeks as the virus crisis worsens in California. "Because of coronavirus, a lot of people start to worry," Liu said. CBS Los Angeles said there's a high concentration of Asians near the Arcadia gun store. Liu said many of his customers are stocking up on weapons because they fear they might be targeted because of their ethnicity if a local virus outbreak is to occur. "I do worry," said Daniel Lim, who recently bought a gun and ammo for his wife at Arcadia. Lim said he bought the gun to defend his family amid fears the virus could crash the stock market and economy and lead to massive social unrest where Asians would be targeted. "I hope and pray it never happens," he said. Lim isn't the only Asian American in the community, thinking that a purge is coming if the virus crisis gets out of hand. "We think it's the perfect time to get a weapon for ourselves," said another Arcadia customer, Dirk Zhang, adding that his wife would never allow a gun in the house until now. "She's a little afraid of the outbreak of the virus," he said. We noted on Monday that the first possible coronavirus-related hate crime in America, where an Asian man was stabbed numerous times, all caught on camera, occurred on a Brooklyn, New York street.”

Rape Grooming Continues: Business as Usual in UK-Decay By Mrs Vera West

     Many people who know about the UK, and European, child grooming rape gangs may think that this is the past, and that even though the police let it happened because of fears of being seen to be racist, that the worst is over. But, rape grooming is on an increase, and the official figures, which some will not trust at all, have almost 19,000 victims in 2018-2019:
  https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7833493/Nearly-19-000-children-sexually-groomed-England-past-year.html
  https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/grooming-child-sex-abuse-exploitation-rotherham-rochdale-police-a9215261.html

“Almost 19,000 children have been sexually groomed in England in the past year, according to official figures that have prompted warnings of an “epidemic”. Campaigners say the true figure is far higher and accused the government of failing to tackle child sexual exploitation, despite promises made after high-profile cases in Rotherham and Rochdale. More than 18,700 suspected victims of child sexual exploitation were identified by local authorities in 2018-19, up from 3,300 five years before. Sarah Champion, the Labour MP for Rotherham, said the figures show that grooming “remains one of the largest forms of child abuse in the country”. “Too many times, government has said it will ‘learn lessons’, yet 19,000 children are still at risk of sexual exploitation,” she told The Independent. “The government has singularly failed to tackle this issue head on. Its approach has been piecemeal and underfunded.” Sajid Javid promised a review into the characteristics of grooming gangs in 2018, saying high-profile cases included a “high proportion of men of Pakistani heritage” and that “cultural reasons” could be at play. The Independent understands that the Home Office started internal analysis of data from police and other agencies, and will use it to inform policy development and prevention strategies. But the findings may not be published and the Queen’s Speech, which set out Boris Johnson's legislative agenda, did not include any mention of a public review.”

666 the Age of the Beast is Here By James Reed

     This is truly end times, maybe as the Bible describes it, with the mark of the beast fast coming:
  https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2018/nov/11/alarm-over-talks-to-implant-uk-employees-with-microchips?fbclid=IwAR0fZArjIsUu7iLrt6mpKiSiE6hPTjqSZGBYXGuJxa7yCXFl3gAKcjwg8IQ

“Britain’s biggest employer organisation and main trade union body have sounded the alarm over the prospect of British companies implanting staff with microchips to improve security. UK firm BioTeq, which offers the implants to businesses and individuals, has already fitted 150 implants in the UK. The tiny chips, implanted in the flesh between the thumb and forefinger, are similar to those for pets. They enable people to open their front door, access their office or start their car with a wave of their hand, and can also store medical data. Another company, Biohax of Sweden, also provides human chip implants the size of a grain of rice. It told the Sunday Telegraph (£) that it is in discussions with several British legal and financial firms about fitting their employees with microchips, including one major company with hundreds of thousands of employees. The CBI, which represents 190,000 UK businesses, voiced concerns about the prospect. A CBI spokesperson said: “While technology is changing the way we work, this makes for distinctly uncomfortable reading. Firms should be concentrating on rather more immediate priorities and focusing on engaging their employees.”

Selling, or Stealing Science to/for China By Bruce Bennett

     Here is a clear problem arising from diversity and multiculturalism, the problem of national loyalty. It is something that the West just forgot about after World War II, because of, well, it would be “racist” to think such thoughts, or too much of a burden to unlimited economic growth :
  https://apnews.com/73fa72b776f2403688a572b770d7f3b5
  https://www.theepochtimes.com/thousands-of-us-based-scientists-sell-research-to-china-report-says_3150130.html

“The United States government has failed to stop China from stealing intellectual property from American universities and lacks a comprehensive strategy for dealing with the threat, a congressional report concluded Monday. The report says the FBI should be more effective and consistent in warning colleges and universities about the threat of Chinese economic and industrial espionage. It also says agencies that award research grants or provide visas for scientists don’t do enough to monitor or track the recipients, and says universities themselves must do a better job identifying foreign funding sources and conflicts of interest among scientists on their campuses. The problem is especially urgent, says the report from the Senate’s Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations, because billions of dollars in taxpayer-funded research have “contributed to China’s global rise over the last 20 years” and to its goal of being a world leader in science and technology by 2050. “As American policy makers navigate an increasingly complicated relationship with China, it is not in our national security interest to fund China’s economic and military development with taxpayer dollars,” the report says. The report is the most recent government study to analyze Chinese intellectual property theft on college campuses and to scrutinize the shortcomings of government agencies in addressing the problem. It focuses on Chinese programs that recruit scientists with access to cutting-edge technology in the U.S. and incentivize them to conduct research for Beijing’s gain and even to steal the work of American academics. In recent years, the report says, the programs have been exploited by scientists who have downloaded sensitive research files before returning to China, filed patents based on U.S. research, lied on grant applications and failed to disclose money they’d received from Chinese institutions. “The U.S. academic community is in the crosshairs of not only foreign competitors contending for the best and brightest, but also of foreign nation states that seek to transfer valuable intellectual capital and steal intellectual property,” the report states. “As the academic community looks to the federal government for guidance and direction on mitigating threats, the U.S. government must provide effective, useful, timely and specific threat information and tools to counter the threats.” The report takes aim at the lack of transparency in how the programs are run, recommending that agencies that distribute research grants stop funding participants in them absent full disclosure of the terms and conditions of membership.”

Russia Thinks that a US Civil War is Coming By Chris Knight

     Russia is right, the West will end in civil wars, everywhere, not just America, although this monstewr will be the first cab off the rank:
  https://gellerreport.com/2019/11/civil-war-2.html/
  https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-01-27/daniel-greenfield-guns-are-how-civil-war-ends-politics-how-it-starts

“This is a civil war. There aren’t any soldiers marching on Charleston… or Myrtle Beach. Nobody’s getting shot in the streets. Except in Chicago… and Baltimore, Detroit and Washington D.C. But that’s not a civil war. It’s just what happens when Democrats run a city into the ground. And then they dig a hole in the ground so they can bury it even deeper. If you look deep enough into that great big Democrat hole, you might even see where Jimmy Hoffa is buried. But it’s not guns that make a civil war. It’s politics. Guns are how a civil war ends. Politics is how it begins. How do civil wars happen? Two or more sides disagree on who runs the country. And they can’t settle the question through elections because they don’t even agree that elections are how you decide who’s in charge. That’s the basic issue here. Who decides who runs the country? When you hate each other but accept the election results, you have a country. When you stop accepting election results, you have a countdown to a civil war. I know you’re all thinking about President Trump. He won and the establishment, the media, the democrats, rejected the results. They came up with a whole bunch of conspiracy theories to explain why he didn’t really win. It was the Russians. And the FBI. And sexism, Obama, Bernie Sanders and white people. It’s easier to make a list of the things that Hillary Clinton doesn’t blame for losing the election. It’s going to be a short list. A really short list. Herself.

Mighty Melatonin By Mrs Vera West

     Many of our older readers are taking melatonin hormones medications, not the stuff from the health food shop, to aid in sleep, not just to re-establish normal rhythms, and I can say that it works well. But, there are other benefits too:
  https://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2019/11/18/melatonin-reduces-inflammation.aspx?utm_source=dnl&utm_medium=email&utm_content=art3HL&utm_campaign=20191118Z1&et_cid=DM393404&et_rid=752448100

“In a combined effort, scientists from universities in Brazil and Italy sought to identify the role melatonin may have in improving disorders commonly found in those who are obese. The researchers used mice who were induced to become obese and treated them for 10 weeks with melatonin. The objective was to determine if the hormone could effectively delay or block the damage from eating too much. The researchers found multiple results supporting their theory that melatonin supplementation could have a significant effect on the animals, including reducing triglyceride levels and total and LDL cholesterol levels. They also found that supplementation prevented larger weight gain by reducing the formation of fat tissue and increasing the capacity to break down white fat. This combination of effects helped to prevent the hypertrophy of fat cells caused by excessive eating. Additionally, the researchers noted the supplementation reduced a characteristic inflammatory process found in obese subjects where macrophages infiltrate adipose tissue. The mice also experienced a reduction in inflammatory related factors through a decrease in gene expression. Overall, at the end of the 10-week trial, the group of mice eating an excessive amount without melatonin gained 49% body mass over the control group that ate a normal diet. The group of mice supplemented with melatonin increased their body mass 28% over the control group, but 13% lower than the group eating excess food without melatonin. The researchers believe the data suggest that melatonin could be considered as a therapeutic agent to help mitigate the metabolic and inflammatory conditions triggered in those who are obese.

Letter to The Editor - We need more free speech, not less

To The Age         Any discussion of so-called "hate speech" needs to take into account the fact that the term has been weaponised by various powerful minority groups and institutions to protect themselves and promote their interests at the expense of others ("Wounding with words", 14/3). Free speech is certainly "vital to democracy and the contest of ideas"; it is equally important for the enactment of justice and the unfettered search for truth. The problem is not so much that "the effects of hate speech are overstated", since plenty of evidence shows otherwise, but that these unpleasant effects are wrongfully cited in order, deliberately, to close down debate on politically sensitive topics. It follows that in Australia, currently, we need more free speech, not less.

New Investments outlive Confetti Money By Viv Forbes


14 March 2020,      Governments seek to revive “the economy” by scattering gifts of our own money wrapped in red tape. This encourages immediate consumption. But this stimulation stops dead when the money tap is turned off. Three simple measures from the three levels of government will create more long term jobs than discriminatory and complicated political handouts that have no lasting effect. Firstly, abolish the federal Capital Gains Tax. Fear of CGT has constipated private property transfer and investment for decades. Most new investors in houses, businesses or farms soon start making improvements – alterations, extensions, a granny flat or new sheds, yards, dams, fences, factories or workshops. But after a few years, owners become satisfied or inactive and capital expenditure dries up. Often they would like to move on but they fear CGT punishment if they sell. Abolish the CGT and its complicated rules and many owners would upgrade to a new property or business and both old and new properties are likely to attract a new cycle of investment and renovation. Making all capital expenditure immediately deductable for tax in all industries would also accelerate re-investment. We would hear the hammers starting within days (as in post-war Germany when Ludwig Erhardt set their beaten people free of tax). Secondly, State governments can accelerate economic rejuvenation by abolishing stamp duty, which is a tax on those who do things. New Zealand abolished stamp duty twenty years ago and the sky did not fall. Thirdly, local governments can help with a six-month rates holiday for all rate payers in shires suffering from fires, flood, drought or corona-virus depression. The feds should fund this. Giving an allowance to people who are forcibly quarantined is reasonable. But most people don’t want a handout – they want a job. We don’t want governments scattering our own money like confetti – we want conditions that encourage people to invest more of their own money in creating real jobs.

Does Joe Biden have Dementia, Like all Dumo-rats? And, Yes, It Matters! By Charles Taylor

     Having a senile old man with his finger on the nuclear button, that was the scare campaign driven by the Democrats in their dirty tricks department against Donald Trump in 2016. Well, Biden so clearly has unending senior moments, that these are stunningly embarrassing, like saying that only Donald Trump can be elected, forgetting his own name, and so on:

Yin Yang and All That By Chris Knight

     I told you so! Former presidential runner Chinese American Andrew Yang, has now endorsed Joe Biden. This is the guy who promised to be against the system, and give everybody $1,000 to party with. That offer immediately attracted the trolls and naïve sector of the Dissent Right, who thought that voting for Yang would teach Trump a lesson. Pure illusion, for it was only a matter of time before Yang would collapse back into the mainstream, if he ever left it. It goes to show how bad some on our side really is, lacking fundamental maturity, and even street wisdom. No wonder they lose all the time, for their army is full of losers!

Should Australia be Shut Down? Will Australia be Shut Down? By Brian Simpson

     Things are hotting up in the fear/paranoia stakes regarding the coronavirus, with calls from the Grattan Institute’s chief executive John Daley, to shut down schools and universities to attempt to stem the advance of Covid-19. Well, shut down the universities … it looks like James Reed will get his wish! After all, Trump has just shut down America to Europe:
  https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2020/03/11/donald-trump-suspends-all-travel-from-european-union-for-30-days-to-fight-coronavirus/
  https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8100251/Australia-close-borders-shut-schools-universities-face-coronavirus-epidemic.html

“Australia has been urged to close its borders, shut down schools and universities and cancel mass events or risk facing a 'complete and utter coronavirus epidemic'. Grattan Institute's chief executive John Daley called for Scott Morrison to follow the lead of Japan, Hong Kong and Singapore, which have introduced radical social distancing measures to curb the spread of COVID-19. Mr Daley said while some countries' approaches to the outbreak have impacted their economies, they had been successful in reducing virus cases. 'One option is that we can introduce very significant social distancing now and also potentially close the airports to foreign travellers. The consequence of that would be you would probably see the number of cases in Australia drop to zero,' he told The Australian. 'The second option is that you keep doing what we are doing at the moment. At some point it is likely that we will start to see significantly more person-to-person transmission in Australia.' Mr Daley warned if Australia keeps up its 'non-stringent measures like Italy', our cases would climb 'pretty quickly' and the fatality rate would skyrocket. Dr Muhammad Mohsin, who runs a number of GP clinics, called for all public events, schools, businesses, childcare centres and universities to be shut down for a month. 'This is the only way we can avoid a complete and utter epidemic in Australia. Otherwise, the virus will spread and it will devastate our country and our economy. We must do it before winter arrives. This is absolutely critical,' he said.

The Pope and Coronavirus: Sure Brings Out the Absurd! By Peter West

     Italy is in lockdown, but the Pope is urging priests to physically go out and comfort those infected by coronavirus … question mark whether this involves hugs along with praying?

  https://www.news18.com/news/world/as-italy-remains-in-lockdown-pope-francis-tells-priests-to-go-out-and-meet-the-coronavirus-affected-2532175.html

“Pope Francis urged Catholic priests on Tuesday to "have the courage" to go out and help those sickened by the novel coronavirus, hours after Italy was placed on a nationwide lockdown. "Let us pray to the Lord also for our priests, that they may have the courage to go out and visit the sick... and to accompany the medical staff and volunteers in the work they do," the pontiff said during a mass in Vatican City. St Peter's Square in the Vatican -- in the centre of the Italian capital Rome -- was almost empty on Tuesday with only a few dozen people walking around, most of them without masks. The Italian government has asked for people not to travel if they can avoid it and to avoid contact with the sick. Officials passed a decree late Monday extending nationwide restrictive measures that had been put in place at the weekend in the hardest-hit northern regions. The restrictions -- including checkpoints on roads and in railway stations -- are set to remain until April 3. Italy is the epicentre of the European virus outbreak with more than 9,000 cases and 463 deaths so far. Globally, more than 110,000 cases have been recorded in over 100 countries, although health experts are hopeful that the virus has peaked in China, where it originated late last year.”

The Gender Equity Paradox By Mrs Vera West

     This is interesting, and a big problem for feminism, with all of its gender discrimination nonsense; countries with more gender equity have fewer women STEM graduates. Feminist theory, with all of its glass ceilings and imaginary discriminations, would predict exactly the opposite:
  https://www.thejournal.ie/gender-equality-countries-stem-girls-3848156-Feb2018/

“countries with greater gender equality see a smaller proportion of women taking degrees in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), a new study has found. Dubbed the “gender equality paradox”, the research found that countries such as Albania and Algeria have a greater percentage of women amongst their STEM graduates than countries lauded for their high levels of gender equality, such as Finland, Norway and Sweden. The researchers, from Leeds Beckett University and the University of Missouri, believe this might be because countries with less gender equality often have little welfare support, making the choice of a relatively high-paid STEM career more attractive. The study, published in Psychological Science, also examined what motivates girls and boys to study STEM subjects, including overall ability, interest or enjoyment in the subject and whether science subjects were a personal academic strength.

“According to Feminist Initiative leader Farida al-Abani, Sweden needs a repetition of the 2015 migrant crisis, when 163,000 asylum seekers entered the Scandinavian country, challenging its welfare system. The Feminist Initiative Party has stirred up emotions with its reply to the new nascent migrant crisis on Europe's borders. In a clip spread virally on social media, Libyan-born party head Farida al-Abani addressed “millions” of migrants in Arabic and invited them to Sweden. The video appears to be a reaction to national-conservative Sweden Democrats leader Jimmie Åkesson, who recently distributed flyers on the Greek border informing migrants that “Sweden is full” and cannot provide them with money or housing.

News from Italy By Brian Simpson

     A Chinese teacher I work with is keeping up with the alternative views on the coronavirus by using my articles as a clearing ground, so I am grateful for this, since all of the white liberal feminist teachers think I am a racist, but not the Chinese and other ethnic ones, whom I sit with each day at lunch time, while the feminists sit in their own quarantined  area, and well, whinge about how oppressed they are. Anyway, here is an Italian professor hosing down the idea that the coronavirus only knocks over old folk, for the Italians are seeing increasing numbers of young people in hospital. My Chinese teacher friend thinks that the commo Chinese government genetically engineered the virus to kill old people to reduce health care costs. That is horrible, but initially credible. However, the hypothesis is probably refuted by the Italian data on young people now getting the infection.

     So, this week we still have not got a clear theory on what is happening with the virus, and it may be some time before we do. In the meantime, keep prepping.
