It was just a couple days ago we wrote about one Staten Island bar finding a “creative” solution to the government shutdown by declaring itself an autonomous zone.
Now, another bar in England is following suit with another “creative” solution: registering itself as a church.
400 Rabbits Tequila and Mezcal Cocktail Bar in Nottingham, England has rebranded itself as “The Church Of the Four Hundred Rabbits” and has officially filed a formal application for the bar to be used as a place of worship, according to the NY Post.
The owner, James Aspell, now needs people to sign up as his congregation in order for the application to go through.
Journalists and rich people defined as “high value business travellers” will be made exempt from having to enter a 2 week COVID quarantine when they return to the UK under new rules announced by the government.
“From 4am on Saturday, people in a number of categories will no longer have to self-isolate upon returning to England, even if they are travelling from a country not on the travel corridors list,” reports Sky News.
Those categories include journalists, “high value business travellers,” performing arts professionals and wealthy sports stars.
Under current rules, anyone returning from a country not on the UK’s “travel corridor” list has to self-isolate at home for 14 days or face escalating fines.
Public Health England said the new measures will not raise the risk of domestic transmission of coronavirus.
Nike, Coca-Cola and Apple, three corporations that vehemently supported the Black Lives Matter movement after the death of George Floyd, are lobbying against a US ban on imports of products produced by Chinese slave labor.
The Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act, which is awaiting a green light from the Senate, bans the import of goods produced in Xinjiang where companies cannot prove they were not made by slave labor.
Uyghur Muslims in Xinjiang face massive persecution at the hands of Chinese authorities, with many being held in de facto re-education camps in which they are forced to work and undergo draconian brainwashing programs.
Nike, Coca-Cola and Apple have never missed an opportunity to assert their woke corporate values, with Apple CEO Tim Cook previously proclaiming, “To the Black community – we see you. You matter and your lives matter.”
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has revised its guidelines for people who may have been exposed to the coronavirus. Now, instead of the standard 14-day quarantine it has been recommending, the CDC says that potential exposure warrants a quarantine of 10 or seven days, depending on one’s test results and symptoms.
If individuals do not develop symptoms, they need only quarantine for 10 days; if they test negative, that period can be reduced to just one week.
The revision marks a significant change from the CDC’s recommendations since the start of the pandemic earlier this year. While the agency says a 14-day quarantine remains the safest option, it acknowledged this length placed difficult demands on people.
“Reducing the length of quarantine may make it easier for people to take this critical public health action by reducing the economic hardship associated with a longer period, especially if they cannot work during that time,” Dr. Henry Walke, the CDC’s incident manager for its COVID-19 response, told reporters on a conference call Wednesday.
The monthly number of suicides in Japan surpassed the country’s total coronavirus death toll in October, according to CNN. There were 2,153 suicides in October in Japan and the country’s total death toll from the pandemic is 2,087.
The downward trending number of suicides in Japan seems to have been reversed by the coronavirus pandemic, CNN reported.
“We didn’t even have a lockdown, and the impact of COVID-19 is very minimal compared to other countries… but still we see this big increase in the number of suicides,” Michiko Ueda, an associate professor at Waseda University in Tokyo, and an expert on suicides, told CNN.
“That suggests other countries might see a similar or even bigger increase in the number of suicides in the future.”
A peer review of the paper on which most Covid testing is based has comprehensively debunked the science behind it, finding major flaws. They conclude it’s utterly unsuitable as a means for diagnosis – and the fall-out is immense.
Last week, I reported on a landmark ruling from Portugal, where a court had ruled against a governmental health authority that had illegally confined four people to a hotel this summer. They had done so because one of the people had tested positive for Covid in a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test – but the court had found the test fundamentally flawed and basically inadmissible.
Now the PCR testing supremacy under which we all now live has received another crushing blow. A peer review from a group of 22 international experts has found 10 “major flaws” in the main protocol for such tests. The report systematically dismantles the original study, called the Corman-Drosten paper, which described a protocol for applying the PCR technique to detecting Covid.
The World Economic Forum published two articles on its website which explored how people could be conditioned to get used to the idea of eating weeds, bugs and drinking sewage water in order to reduce CO2 emissions.
“Finding new plant-based foods is becoming increasingly urgent with the world’s population forecast to grow by two billion in the next 30 years,” states an article authored by Douglas Broom published on the official WEF website
“While farming animals for meat generates 14.5% of total global greenhouse emissions, weeds capture carbon from the atmosphere and can therefore help to control climate change.”
The Welsh government has announced that people who take the COVID vaccine will get immunisation ID cards, raising the prospect that people could need to prove they’ve taken the shot before being allowed to enter venues.
“Wales’ Health Minister Vaughan Gething confirmed on Wednesday that people there will receive a credit-card sized immunisation card which states the type of vaccine and the date it was administered,” reports the Daily Mirror.
“Those receiving a Covid-19 vaccination will be given a credit card-sized NHS Wales immunisation card which will have the vaccine name, date of immunisation and batch number of each of the doses given handwritten on them,” said Gething.
Arguing that the benefits of the vaccine “far outweigh the risks” from expedited approval, British regulator MHRA – Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency – has become the first in the West to approve the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine for emergency use, a landmark decision that has once again lifted the market’s mood as the never-ending procession of vaccine news continues.
Dr. June Raine, the executive director of the British regulator, assured the public that “no corners were cut” in the approval process, which was carried out under EU law (which the UK is obliged to honor until Jan. 1). Now, the UK, which has been testing large-scale delivery systems for the vaccine (which has very cumbersome temperature requirements (it must be stored at a temperature that’s colder than the north pole) will be the first in the West to test its logistical prowess as regulators in the US and Brussels scramble to catch up.
