Unvaxxed Scapegoats, Engineered Viruses, & Solar Flares: Oh My!

In the realm of health and science, a recent study has shed light on the stigmatization faced by unvaccinated individuals during the COVID-19 pandemic. The research suggests that unvaccinated individuals were disproportionately blamed for the spread of the virus, a sentiment fueled by misinformation and overestimation of the virus's threat. The study also revealed the influence of political ideology on scapegoating, with both left-leaning and conservative individuals prone to blaming the unvaccinated. The authors called for further investigation into the role of media exposure in shaping these attitudes.

In a separate study, Japanese virologists Professors Atsushi Tanaka and Takayuki Miyazawa suggest that all COVID-19 variants were engineered in biolabs and intentionally released. The researchers traced the origins of the Omicron variant by studying viral sequences found in public databases and discovered roughly 100 subvariants that could not have arisen naturally. This provides evidence of large-scale lab creation and release of COVID-19 viruses. The study's findings prompt a reconsideration of the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic and suggest that it may have been a well-designed global experiment in human inoculation and a social experiment.

Turning to the world of media, former Vice President Al Gore has expressed concern over the impact of social media algorithms on democracy. During an appearance at the Cop28 climate change conference in Dubai, Gore argued that these algorithms disrupt the balance of shared knowledge that underpins representative democracy. He suggested that these algorithms, which he likened to “the digital equivalent of AR-15s,” should be banned.

In the realm of entertainment, a new documentary titled “The WWI Conspiracy” challenges the official narrative of World War One. The film explores the hidden influence of secret societies in manipulating alliances and shaping public opinion during the war. It also uncovers the deception and manipulation employed to draw the United States into the conflict.

In economic news, the world’s economy’s heavy reliance on fossil fuels has raised concerns about the potential negative impacts of a fossil fuel-deprived economy. Banks may fail due to the inability to repay debts, leading to hyperinflation and a decline in the availability of goods and services. Governments may also struggle to bail out banks and face declining tax revenue. The article concludes that the world needs to scale down its use of fossil fuels due to limited resources and the laws of physics governing their selling prices.

In the shipping industry, Danish shipping company A.P. Moller-Maersk has paused all container shipments through the Red Sea until further notice due to escalating security concerns. The decision follows a near-miss incident involving one of its vessels, Maersk Gibraltar, which was targeted by a missile while travelling from Salalah, Oman, to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

Finally, in space news, a NASA telescope has captured the biggest solar flare in years, which temporarily knocked out radio communication on Earth. Scientists at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said it was the biggest flare since 2017, and the radio burst was extensive, affecting even the higher frequencies. The sun is nearing the peak of its 11-year or so solar cycle, with maximum sunspot activity predicted for 2025.
