Estimating Global Epidemiology of Low-Pathogenic Human Coronaviruses in Relation to the COVID-19 Context Journal of Infectious Diseases (via). Correspondence: “Monto et al have nicely presented the of the identified cases in Michigan according to the 4 LPH-CoV types . We performed similar analyses by pooling 5 studies with relevant data, and all these studies were from countries in the northern hemisphere. We confirmed their findings that more cases were detected in the winter season (Figure 1C). However, we are cautious about the interpretation of these seasonal distribution data (Figure 1C)  because they only specified the identified cases and not the rate of infection, as the total number of tested cases in each month was not given. More importantly, whether SARS-CoV-2 will develop into a seasonal and/or endemic virus only time will tell.” But see also Reply to Li et al from the same source: “To enable valid comparisons, meta-analyses necessitate careful scrutiny of eligibility criteria to ensure standardization of study design, including case definitions and denominator data, the period of observation, and stratification or adjustment by age and illness severity. Li et al  have not described their study inclusion and exclusion criteria. Hence, it is not possible to examine the validity of their pooled estimates.”
Bill Clinton credits Barack Obama for Super Tuesday’s “Night of the Long Knives” at 0:15:
for some WEIRD reason its almost impossible to find this clip of Bill Clinton today *explicitly* making it clear that Clyburn & Obama + DNC Establishment coalesced to destroy Bernie Sanders. They’ve been saying it’s a ranting raving conspiracy theory. He straight up says it. pic.twitter.com/zDQn93UxId
It’s the healthcare system, stupid Thomas Frank, Le Monde Diplomatique. This is a must-read. (Le Monde is, I believe, French. That Frank got blackballed after Listen, Liberal! implies, at the very least, the necessity of a hermenutic of suspicion for those who continue to be allowed to publish.)
There’ve been so many stories about populism v covid that I started wondering, what would a populist healthcare system actually look like? The answer makes you rethink the total credulity toward experts/professionals that is urged upon us these days.https://t.co/AuOOkwY04w
Unsealed Epstein documents detail alleged abuse by Ghislaine Maxwell The Hill. The “trove” nobody is talking about is Epstein’s video. All agree Epstein’s homes were wired and that recordings were taken during the festivities. Not to go all CT, and don’t you either, but given Epstein’s Rolodex and flight logs, these videos are almost certainly high-grade intelligence and unlikely not to have been convered into power. The press seems curiously silent on this point, preferring the focus on the foibles — granted quelle foibles — of the individual actors. Odd.
