South Dakota AG charged with three motoring misdemeanors
[Daily Mail, where America gets its news]
  • Jason Ravnsborg has been charged with misdemeanor careless driving

  • He also faces misdemeanor charges of operating a motor vehicle while using a mobile electronic device and veering out of his lane

  • Ravnsborg mowed down 55-year-old Jason Boever with his car in September while driving from a Republican fundraiser

  • He initially told authorities he thought he hit a deer but returned to the scene the next morning and realized he hit a man

  • Emily Sovell, deputy Hyde County state's attorney, said the evidence didn't support more serious felony charges such as vehicular homicide

  • Ravnsborg has said he is confident he did not commit a crime, and that he was not drinking before the crash

  • Boever's family has questioned Ravnsborg's account, and expressed frustration at the five-month wait to hear whether he would face charges

How Much Longer Will DFW-Area Store Shelves Be Nearly Empty Following Winter Storms?
DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) — On top of dealing with power outages and boil water advisories, many North Texans have been frustrated by nearly empty shelves at grocery stores across the Metroplex.

"I know it’s unnerving for customers when they come in the store and it doesn’t look like the grocery store they know and love," said Christy Lara, director of public relations for the southern division of Tom Thumb and Albertsons. "There’s been an increase in demand, coupled with some stores that have dealt with power outages and had to [get rid of] product as a result."

List Of Places Giving Away Drinking Water In North Texas
The hazardous road conditions have also made it difficult for suppliers and trucks to get in.

"So that has impacted us exponentially with getting product replenished in our stores," said April Martin, corporate affairs manager for the Kroger Dallas division. "We’re hoping to see some type of normalcy — I’ll put that in air quotes — by this weekend."

The situation at grocery stores is reminiscent of what happened at the beginning of the pandemic in 2020.

#1  It would appear that without long-haul redelivery/resupply, grocery stores are pretty out of Schlitz in two to three days.

#2  Panic buying. I was without power for 30 hours straight Monday and Tuesday. Ventured out Wed to stock up on my favorite cracker and found the local Kroger lot jam-packed. I went home, empty-handed.

Sort of like the power - demand exceeded supply.

My brother lives in Dallas and reported yesterday that his local Wal-Mart was pretty well stocked.

Of course, the doom and gloom from the media fueled all of it.

#7  About 30 minutes after #2, the wife and I went to Sprouts Farmers Market and talked to a manager. They lost power Tue-Wed-Thu and spent all day Friday tossing the frozen or refrigerated products. Those shelves were empty.

The Tom Thumb across the street was pretty well stocked. The checkout girl had no idea how long their power was off, but they might be in a different grid than the Sprouts.

But that was well before the ice started melting and the late sleepers got up.

'How in the world can anyone pay that?': Some seeing electric bills as high as $17K in wake of Texas winter storm
[WFAA] If you were on a variable or indexed plan, your rate — and therefore, your electric bill — may have skyrocketed.
That happens sometimes, when you choose not to have a fixed rate. I’m sure the electric company will let them pay it off over time.

Criminal Rings in China Made Fake COVID-19 Vaccines, Some Sent to Foreign Countries
Commies gotta.
[EpochTimes] Chinese authorities recently announced a crackdown on criminal rings involved in making fake COVID-19 vaccines, and revealed that some of the products were distributed to other countries.

Arrested suspects were accused of gaining illicit profits totaling around 18 million yuan (about $2.78 million).

As of Feb. 10, 21 vaccine-related cases were being investigated across the country, with 70 suspects arrested, according to a Feb. 15 report by Chinese state media Xinhua.

In the early stages of China’s vaccine rollout, the report said, suspects made huge profits through manufacturing fake vaccines, selling and reselling them at high prices, and inoculating groups without authorization.

Some of the Chinese-made fake vaccines were reportedly transported from Tianjin to Shenzhen, and then smuggled to other countries via Hong Kong. Xinhua did not specify which countries.

The criminal rings allegedly bought prefilled syringes or packaged saline solution or mineral water (when saline solution was out of stock) into fake vaccines. They then illegally set up emergency inoculation centers.

Suspects claimed that theirs were "genuine COVID-19 shots obtained through internal channels."

They placed advertisements on social media to solicit customers. They also forged employee certificates, overseas job certificates, air tickets, and other supporting documents to appear like legitimate vaccine distributors.

In one case, suspects arranged for more than 200 people to receive about 500 doses of fake shots, making a profit of 547,000 yuan (about $84,695) as of December 2020.

Others profited from a scheme to arrange for citizens to get inoculated through emergency vaccination programs at hospitals. At the time, the Chinese regime only allowed high-risk populations to take the vaccine. The suspects charged money for people to have access to real vaccine shots.

Vaccine-related scandals are common in China.

Lu Jun, co-founder of the nonprofit Beijing Yirenping Center, told Radio Free Asia that in China, officially-approved organizations are often involved in illegal activity.

"Either licensed manufacturers produced sub-standard vaccines, or governmental anti-epidemic agencies committed irregularities or even illegal operations in the process of vaccine procurement, distribution, and transportation," Lu said.

He cited a scandal that erupted in 2010, after a pharmaceutical company in Shanxi Province was found to have produced sub-standard vaccines, leading to local deaths. According to an investigation by state media China Economic Times, the company colluded with the Shanxi government to distribute the vaccines across the province.

Florida Gov DeSantis announces new election integrity measures for future elections
This is how to restore faith in democracy.
[PostMillennial] FL Gov. Ron DeSantis on Friday held a conference where he announced that the state would be moving forwards with new election integrity measures.

"We were not going to be sending out unsolicited mass mail ballots because, as we’ve seen, there’s problems with that. And when people tried to sue us, we told them, 'Pound sand. We’re not going to change what we’re doing.'"

"So the result of 2020 from an administrative perspective was that Florida had the most transparent and efficient election anywhere in the country. Other states took days, weeks, and even months to count their votes, and yet Florida, by midnight on Election Night, we had 99% reporting and 11 million votes counted, tabulated, and put out to the public. It can be done, and don’t let anybody tell you it can’t be done."

"We need to make sure that our citizens have confidence in the elections, that they have the ability to vote. We want, obviously, everyone to vote, but we don’t want anyone to cheat, and we want to make sure that we strike that appropriate balance."

The details of the new policies are described briefly in the following tweet:

"As part of Desantis's election integrity proposal today, counties would be prohibited from receiving grants from private third-party organizations for "get out the vote" initiatives."


  • Ballot boxes will be inspected for integrity.

  • No one will be able to collect a ballot other then their own or one for a member of their immediate family

  • Only voters specifically asking for a ballot would get one.

  • Vote-by-mail requests must be made on a yearly basis.

  • Vote by mail ballot signatures must match the most recent signature on file

  • Political parties and candidates must be permitted to observe the signature matching process.

  • Supervisors of Elections will have to report how many ballots have been requested, received and left to be counted, They also have to post over-vote ballots on their respective websites for the canvassing boards before the boards' meetings.

  • Voter turnout data must be provided in real time.

Ivanka Trump says she won’t run for Florida Senate seat in 2022
[IsraelTimes] Former president’s daughter reportedly informs Florida Senator Marco Rubio
...The diminutive 13-year-old Republican U.S. Senator from Florida...
she will support his reelection campaign.

The New York Times

...which still proudly displays Walter Duranty's Pulitzer prize...

on Thursday quoted a front man for Rubio, the incumbent Republican senator, as saying that Trump relayed her intention not to run to the senator last month.

"Marco did speak with Ivanka a few weeks ago," Nick Iacovella, a Rubio front man, said. "Ivanka offered her support for Marco’s reelection. They had a great talk."

There was speculation after former Donald Trump
...New York real estate developer, described by Dems as illiterate, racist, misogynistic, and what ever other unpleasant descriptions they can think of, elected by the rest of us as 45th President of the United States...
lost his reelection bid that Ivanka, his Jewish daughter, would run against Rubio in the primaries. Ivanka Trump served as a senior unpaid adviser to her father, as did her husband, Jared Kushner.

The Times confirmed the report with sources close to Ivanka Trump, who said she was never seriously considering a run. Rubio and Donald Trump were sharply at odds during the 2016 election, when both were seeking the nomination, but have since formed a working partnership.

Ivanka Trump and Kushner are said to be moving to Florida, in part because they are no longer welcome among their former friends in New York City, where the Trump brand has fallen out of favor because of Donald Trump’s policies over the past four years.

Eric Trump’s wife, Lara, is reportedly more serious about a Senate candidacy in North Carolina, where the incumbent Republican, Richard Burr, has said he will not run in 2022. Eric Trump is the former president’s son.

Science & Technology
Five Israelis teams fighting for a COVID-19 cure
[JPost] - Israeli scientists and researchers are racing to find a cure for COVID-19, as global consensus is forming among medical professionals that vaccination is not going to eliminate corona.

When Israel launched its mass vaccination campaign, there were many who believed there would no longer be a need for medication, Prof. Eli Schwartz, founder of the Center for Travel Medicine and Tropical Disease at Sheba Medical Center in Tel Hashomer, told The Jerusalem Post.

"Now we know that this was an illusion," he said. "Even in Israel, not everyone is taking the vaccine. There is quite a big population of youngsters under the age of 16 for whom it will be at least months until we have a vaccine."

Prof. Shlomo Maayan, head of the Infectious Disease Division at Barzilai Medical Center, explained to the Post that there are three reasons the vaccines will not mean the end of COVID. First, even the most effective vaccines — Pfizer and Moderna — are only around 95% effective. That means that there is still a one-in-1,000 chance of getting the virus.

Moreover, the virus continually mutates, which means that at various points a mutation may come about that renders the vaccines less effective or even noneffective, as was shown in the case of the South African mutation.

Finally, the global population is massive, and it will take a long time, probably several years, for everyone who wants to be inoculated to be jabbed.
Most importantly, based on pre-Covid studies of coronaviruses, we expect the vaccination induced immunity to be transient.
Even in Israel, there is no expectation of 100% recovery from the pandemic.

As such, teams of medical professionals and scientists are striving to develop novel treatments and drugs to help solve the crisis and keep people out of hospitals.

Almost daily, there is an announcement of a breakthrough medication — many of them being tested in Israel.

Despite all of the excitement around them, Prof. Yaakov Nahmias, director of the Grass Center for Bioengineering at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, said that these press releases "need to be taken with a grain of salt" and put into perspective.

..."There is a plethora of drugs that are being used [during the pandemic]," said Maayan. "Some of the drugs we started using a year ago we are still using, and some have been phased out."

For example, Gilead’s remdesivir, which was originally touted for its believed ability to hinder the virus’s ability to reproduce, was later discovered to be only modestly effective.

The same is true with hydroxychloroquine, which is traditionally used to prevent or treat malaria. At the beginning of the pandemic, the drug was given emergency use authorization by the Food and Drug Administration. That authorization was later revoked, after reports of serious heart rhythm problems and other safety issues, including blood and lymph system disorders, kidney injuries and liver problems and failure.

In contrast, monoclonal antibodies — laboratory-made proteins that mimic the immune system’s ability to fight off harmful antigens, including viruses, and that became well-known last year when former US president Donald Trump received them immediately upon being diagnosed with COVID-19 — continue to be used by hospitals worldwide to help ward off serious infection.

"The idea is to do a proper study," Maayan said. "If you do not have a proper study, you don’t have a control group, then even if the initial impression is good, it is not really good enough."
Details at the link.

Most importantly - once we'll see that immunization effects are temporary - there will be some money for (long overdue) investigation of the immune memory mechanisms.
