In Earth’s early history, a day was 23.5 hours and a year lasted 372 days

(13.03.2020)

We’ve long known that an Earth day lasts 24 hours, and that remains constant because Earth’s trip around the sun doesn’t vary.

However, the number of days that make an Earth year have shifted and shortened because days have grown longer. That is thanks to the moon’s gravity, which draws on ocean’s tides and slows Earth’s rate of rotation.

Laid off and now evicted amid Covid-19, a Houston father contemplates homelessness in a pandemic

Late Tuesday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued a temporary halt in residential evictions until the end of the year, starting Friday. When it goes into effect, it will delay mass evictions but not solve the rental crisis, said Emily Benfer, a housing expert and co-creator of a Covid-19 housing policy scorecard with Princeton University’s Eviction Lab.
„The CDC order provides crucial temporary relief for renters, but it doesn’t end the eviction crisis,“ says Benfer. „Congress must bolster it with significant rental assistance for its purpose to be realized,“ she said.

Supreme Court temporarily blocks court order that cleared the way for expanded vote by mail in Alabama due to Covid-19

Numerous studies suggest that voter fraud is all but nonexistent in the US, and the President’s own voter fraud commission disbanded without finding any evidence to back up his claims.

From pandering to Putin to abusing allies and ignoring his own advisers, Trump’s phone calls alarm US officials

In hundreds of highly classified phone calls with foreign heads of state, President Donald Trump was so consistently unprepared for discussion of serious issues, so often outplayed in his conversations with powerful leaders like Russian President Vladimir Putin and Turkish President Recep Erdogan, and so abusive to leaders of America’s principal allies, that the calls helped convince some senior US officials — including his former secretaries of state and defense, two national security advisers and his longest-serving chief of staff — that the President himself posed a danger to the national security of the United States, according to White House and intelligence officials intimately familiar with the contents of the conversations.

Flu Misinformation and Coronavirus Fears: My Letter to Dr. Sanjay Gupta

9. CNN assertion: Sanjay, I’ve watched your video assuring the public that getting the flu shot cannot increase one’s chances of getting the flu.

Fact: While that assertion has some meager support from a very small number of studies, the overwhelming weight of published science suggests that getting an annual flu shot can actually increase your risk of both flu and flu-like illnesses.

Only about 7 percent to 15 percent of what are called “influenza-like illnesses” are actually caused by influenza viruses. Many studies suggest the flu vaccine increases vulnerability to both flu infections and the remaining 85% -93% of non-flu respiratory infections.

A 2011 study of healthy Australian children published in the Pediatric Infectious Disease Journal found that seasonal flu shots increase the risk of flu by 73% and doubled the risk of non-flu respiratory infections.

Similarly, another 2012 randomized controlled trial published in Clinical Infectious Diseases found that influenza-vaccinated children had no significantly lessened risk from influenza and also a higher risk of infection from non-influenza viruses.

Furthermore, the flu vaccine depletes capacity to fight off future flu infections. In April 2010, a study (by Skowronek, et al) published in the journal PLoS Medicine reported the “unexpected” finding from four epidemiologic studies in Canada that receipt of the influenza vaccine for the 2008 – 2009 season, while apparently effective in reducing the risk of illness due to the seasonal flu, was associated with an increased risk of illness due to the pandemic influenza A (H1N1) “swine flu” virus during the spring and summer of 2009. The scientists suggested that this finding could be due to the difference in the way the vaccine affects the immune system compared with natural infection.

Depressing new death toll projections and infection data on Monday dashed the optimism stirred by more than half the country taking various steps to reopen an economy that is vital to Trump’s reelection hopes and has shed more than 30 million jobs. Stay-at-home orders slowed the virus and flattened the curve in hotspots like New York and California, but they have so far failed to halt its broader advance, leaving the nation stuck on a grim plateau of about 30,000 new cases a day for nearly a month.

NH Pollster: ‘Our Polling Schedule is Determined by CNN’

In an exclusive comment to CitizenSource, the University of New Hampshire Survey Center — one of the only DNC-approved pollsters in New Hampshire (due to the fact that they are “partners” with CNN) — explained why they wouldn’t be conducting a poll this month in the battleground state before the crucial September debate. Director Andrew E. Smith responded:

“The UNH Survey Center is funded by grants and contracts. We have contracted with CNN during this primary cycle as we have since 2000. Our polling schedule is determined by CNN and their polling budget.”

Mr. Smith, just a few days before, told a Tulsi Gabbard supporter that they would be happy to conduct a poll “if someone was willing to pay the $50,000 cost,” a cost that CNN usually covers. (Of course, even if a third party provided the funding, the poll wouldn’t count — even if it had the same methodology — simply because it wasn’t funded by CNN or another DNC-approved media organization).

Es wird im SPIEGEL noch Ende November, Anfang Dezember für möglich gehalten, dass Moreno in diesem Spiel der eigentliche Halunke ist und Relotius das Opfer einer üblen Verleumdung. Geschickt pariert Relotius alle Angriffe, alle gut recherchierten Beweise Morenos. Immer wieder findet er Mittel, Zweifel zu säen, Vorwürfe plausibel zu entkräften, die Wahrheit mit allen Mitteln zu seinen Gunsten zu verdrehen.

Macron’s top-down approach to fighting climate change serves as a cautionary tale

While world leaders gather in Katowice, Poland, for the COP24 climate summit, protesters in the streets of Paris have successfully forced French President Emmanuel Macron’s hand, undercutting his efforts to impose a carbon tax on French energy sales. Macron has made climate change and lowering greenhouse gases a central component of both his domestic and foreign policies, only to face dramatic failure at the hands of his „yellow vest“ countrymen.

Reporters condemn White House decision to bar CNN’s Acosta

It is unclear whether Acosta will be turned away again on Thursday. It also remains to be seen whether White House reporters will walk out, or show solidarity with Acosta and CNN in other ways.
Acosta is CNN’s chief White House correspondent. He was trying to reenter the White House grounds for a live shot on „Anderson Cooper 360“ when he was stopped by Secret Service officers.

Briefbomben in den USA: Hillary Clinton greift Trump an

Die ehemalige Präsidentschaftskandidatin Hillary Clinton hat US-Präsident Trump scharf kritisiert und gibt ihm indirekt eine Mitschuld an den Briefbomben.
Der US-Präsident praktiziere eine rücksichtlose Rhetorik, sagte Clinton. Die Atmosphäre sei unberechenbar und hasserfüllt.
Auch Ex-Präsident Obama äußert sich und wirft Trump und anderen Republikanern Lügen vor.

Whoever sent pipe bombs to a series of Trump critics appears to have spelled John Brennan and Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s names wrong

The package addressed to former CIA Director John Brennan — which Business Insider has seen pictures of — misspelled his name as „Brenan“ and misidentified the TV network he contributes to.
It listed Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Florida as the sender but spelled her name as „Shultz“ and her home state as „Florids.“

Briefbomben-Wirrwarr zeigt Zustand der US-Politik

Die zehn Pakete waren fast identisch, und als Absender war auf allen die Kongressabgeordnete Debbie Wasserman Schultz aus Florida angegeben, die ehemalige Vorsitzende des Nationalkomitees der Demokraten. Nicht bestätigten Medienberichten vom Donnerstag zufolge könnten die Pakete von Südflorida aus verschickt worden sein, wo Schultz die bekannteste politische Figur der Demokraten ist.

Jedes Paket enthielt eine Rohrbombe der gleichen plumpen Bauart, zum Teil nebst einer Hülle aus weißem Pulver, das offenbar harmlos war. Das FBI hat keine Details über den Auslösemechanismus veröffentlicht. Es bestätigte lediglich, dass kein Draht vorhanden war, um die Bombe zu zünden – was ohnehin offensichtlich war, da mehrere Pakete geöffnet worden waren, ohne dass es eine Explosion gegeben hätte.

The Danger of Running an Election on Fear

At a fund-raiser in Coral Gables this afternoon, Mrs. Clinton addressed the news of the bombs.

“It’s a time of deep divisions, and we have to do everything we can to bring our country together,” she told a crowd of 200 donors.

But it’s worth noting how she talked about this election just 15 days ago.

“You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about,” she told CNN.

Last Terrorists of Douma: Jaish, Helmets & SAMS Collaborate in Massacre

The last terrorists of Douma have engaged in a ghastly repeat of the heinous atrocities in Khan Sheikhoun, just days after the first anniversary of their slaughter, there. Though the dominant alQaeda faction there is alNusra, the supportive characters of the US and British intelligence funded White Helmets and the US-based, CNN and State Department approved NGO, SAMS remain the same. As with the Khan Sheikhoun slaughter, the purpose of the Douma ‘snuff porn’ slaughter is to incite the swamp-drunk Trump to again bomb Syrian soldiers and ‘collateral damage civilians,’ based on the lies of alQaeda.

The week before the mass murder in Khan Sheikhoun, 250 civilians were kidnapped from nearby villages Majal and Khattab. On 4 April 2017, it was CNN — terrorists most trusted name in news — which broke the report. CNN’s chief source was the British illegal, Shajul Islam, embedded with alNusra-still-on-US-and-UN-terror-lists. He is the guy who was indicted on terrorism charges in his native UK, the guy whose medical license was permanently revoked in his native UK.

Vanessa Beeley: „Before you believe the #CNN warmongers in #Damascus. Their poster boy of war, Frederick Pleitgen was with me when we visited a terrorist chemical weapons lab in #Irbin Eastern #Ghouta two days ago.

(7.4.2018) He does not mention it in his sensationalist report „live“ from Damascus.
Nor does he mention the estimated 3500 plus #prisoners being held by Jaish Al-Islam terrorists in their „repentance“ prisons, many women and children among them who are very probably now being murdered to produce the last ditch attempt #chemical weapon attack – #UK is already posturing that they will attack Syria if this CW attack is proven…and we know what proof means to these criminals.“
