Cruise ships are no longer required to abide by a series of COVID-19 safety restrictions issued last year by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which expired on Jan. 15, allowing cruise lines discretion in applying the protocols.The CDC has announced the expiration of its Temporary Extension and Modification of Framework for Conditional Sailing Order (CSO), a set of mandatory rules for foreign-flagged cruise ships operating in U.S. waters, including strict protocols on vaccination, testing, and mask-wearing.“After the expiration of the Temporary Extension & Modification of the CSO, CDC intends to transition to a voluntary program, in coordination with cruise ship operators and other stakeholders, to assist the cruise ship industry to detect, mitigate, and control the spread of COVID-19 onboard cruise ships,” the CDC said in a statement.
MIT scientist's warning for parents about the COVID vaccineDr. Stephanie Seneff, a senior research scientist with MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, said the possible benefits for children from the coronavirus vaccine are minimal. The rapid movement of these vaccines through controlled trials and into mass deployment raises multiple safety concerns, she said.
In an astonishing move, HHS notified hospitals they are no longer required to report COVID deaths beginning Feb. 2, 2022.
"The Great Soviet Encyclopedia"
I remember at the University of Michigan being amazing that "The Great Soviet Encyclopedia" in the library was receiving regular updates from the Soviet Union on which articles to remove and replace in the encyclopedia. I think the librarians did keep the old articles though.

Slow the Spread? Speeding It May Be Safer - WSJJan. 10, 2022 6:31 pm ETThe Omicron variant is spreading across the globe, but so far the strain appears to be less deadly than its predecessors. That’s good news, but here’s a risk that policy makers in every country should appreciate: Policies designed to slow the spread of Omicron may end up creating a supervariant that is more infectious, more virulent and more resistant to vaccines. That would be a man-made disaster.To minimize that risk, policy makers must tolerate the rapid spread of milder variants. This will require difficult trade-offs, but it will save lives in the long run. We should end mask mandates and social distancing in most settings not because they don’t slow the spread—the usual argument against such measures—but because they probably do.
Top WHO scientist finally admits that kids shouldn’t get boosted!!!! Yet the US colleges and universities aren’t going to back off. Someone is very wrong here and for once it isn’t the WHO.Twitter avatar for @IanLyne3Ian Lyne @IanLyne3Top WHO scientist Dr. @doctorsoumya says there's no evidence healthy children and adolescents need #COVID19 boosters.#TogetherDeclaration
JANUARY 19, 2022CDC Admits Cloth Masks Are IneffectiveMask mandates are more about politics than science, but you already knew that.Remember when Anthony Fauci declared, “There is no reason to be walking around wearing a mask”?Nearly two years into the ChiCom Virus pandemic, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has officially changed its position on the efficacy of cloth masks, essentially admitting what many health experts (and even Fauci before he did a 180) have claimed: They have almost no preventative impact against the coronavirus.
After two years of sunk costs from COVID Mania, the U.K. surrenders in its war against a virusLet's hope the rest of the West follows.Jordan Schachtel2 hr agoIn admitting de facto defeat in their war against a submicroscopic infectious particle, the United Kingdom has announced that they will soon drop all of the nation’s COVID19-related restrictions. Most notably, the U.K. is abandoning its discriminatory vaccine passport system.Yes, the ruling class in Britain will never admit that it was all for nothing, and this is a much bigger issue than just Boris Johnson. The entire U.K. system adopted, enforced, and cheered on these restrictions.And surely, these politicians and fraudulent “experts” will put on their best COVID-19 rain dance impression, and they will even pretend that they are to credit for the disease eventually becoming endemic. But the data doesn’t lie. Nothing worked. And every “public health measure” enforced by the U.K. government — and this includes almost every single government in the world — made matters worse. They can’t afford to admit to this massive sunk costs to their citizensYet every policy measure devised by “public health experts” and implemented by the government failed. Every single one. Not a soul was saved by the British government, or any government, but millions and millions were most certainly harmed by their catastrophic adoption of Wuhan-like measures to fight a virus.
Starbucks Will No Longer Require Employees To Be Vaccinated Against COVID Or Get TestedThe move comes weeks after Starbucks employees from a Buffalo, New York, shop walked out after growing concerns for their health and safety.
Thousands of College Students Are Petitioning Against Three Universities' Booster MandatesBY ERIN BRADY ON 1/19/22 AT 11:46 AM ESTThree prominent universities are experiencing pushback from some students as a result of COVID-19 vaccine booster mandates.Students at Stanford University, George Mason University and Cornell University have begun petitioning against the mandate. All three universities are requiring that students receive a booster shot before returning to campus. Despite the majority of the student populations already being vaccinated, the petitions and letters claim that it should be up to the students to determine what is best for their health."It is unethical and immoral to exploit the vulnerability of students, who would lose so much by exercising their right of refusal, to take a medical treatment without their voluntary, informed consent," George Mason law student Robert Fellner wrote on his Change.org petition.
The truth, reduced to a few key and essential facts, is as follows:Covid-19 is, overall, not that deadly, and getting less deadly all the time.Most of those who die of Covid are already unwell, often extremely unwell.Most interventions to contain Covid, in particular lockdowns and ubiquitous masking, don’t work.Children are nearly immune to Covid and do very little to spread it.In terms of effect on America’s prosperity, stability, health, and mental well-being, the “cures” for Covid have been far more harmful than the disease itself.For the past year, stating these facts could get a person banned from Facebook or shut down on YouTube and Twitter.But now, abruptly, the Biden Administration and its mouthpieces are trying to make this the conventional wisdom. Sensing political calamity if it can’t get the country to move past Covid, what might be called the “West Wing” branch of progressivism desperately wants to adjust narratives and calm their base down, so that life (and the economy) can go back to normal.Suddenly, all over the place, the old stalwarts of Covid hysteria are saying things that mere weeks ago constituted “misinformation” you could get censored for uttering. ...There’s just one problem: The regime’s propaganda was too effective. Millions of loyal cattle are too traumatized to go back to their old way of life. In a recent poll conducted by The Hill, forty-two percent of registered voters and a majority of Democrats said that, regardless of advice from the CDC or other health officials, everybody should still wear masks outdoors no matter what.What is happening right now with masks isn’t science. It’s a new cult, created through a mix of political pressure and old-fashioned terror. This cult, created almost by accident, is now too entrenched and too powerful to be turned off by the people who created it.
COVID is now an ‘endemic,' not a ‘pandemic,' San Francisco doctors say
Facebook Oversight Reverses Hydroxychloroquine Censorship DecisionMONDAY, FEB 01, 2021 - 12:04 PMFacebook's independent Oversight Board has ruled against the social media giant's decision to remove an October 2020 post touting hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) - the antimalarial which Democrats and their media surrogates were cautiously optimistic about until former President Trump promoted it. ...One can't help but wonder how many lives the left's politicization of HCQ may have cost, after several studies have concluded that when taken early into a COVID-19 infection, the antimalarial has been shown to reduce mortality.
This is why I find the tenor of discussion around Covid-19 restrictions genuinely bewildering. There basically aren’t any. The United States is powering through the Omicron wave with its usual enforced individualism. The hard restrictions on our activities are, for the most part, not mandated or enforced by the state, acting at the behest of liberals who refuse to go back to normal because they are addicted to panic and quarantine; the limits are imposed by the virus that isn’t going away. My kid’s school class went remote for a while because people had Covid-19. He’s back in school now even though his principal has Covid-19. As usual in the United States, the people who won the political argument are now complaining the loudest that they’re dissatisfied with the results, and, apparently, it’s all the fault of the losers.

What's Behind The "Live with COVID" Message?As fast as they can, they are trying to find a rug to sweep their fascism under. Many are pathetically seeking to retain legitimacy.
Belarusian President advises people diagnosed with coronavirus “not to worry”.President Alexander Lukashenko has advised people not to worry too much if they have been diagnosed with the coronavirus and urged the “international scammers” to end the pandemic.“I would advise you not to worry. I’ve been telling you for a long time, since the first time: our illness is here, in our heads. And once you start worrying about “oh and oh” and running to hell knows where, that’s bad. Young people have nothing to fear,” Lukashenko told reporters on Friday, the presidential press service reports.He appealed to the international organizations: “I would like to say to all these international fraudsters: enough is enough. They’ve grabbed so much into our pockets that there’s nothing left. They’ve all already undressed. This pandemic must finally end. It’s enough, they’ve tormented people enough.”The President added that he is following the development of the coronavirus situation around the world and what various experts are saying: “One, either an American or a Western expert, said: ‘If Omicron is such a light virus, then let’s everyone will get sick and that will be the vaccine for us’. In my opinion, this is an ideal proposal,” Lukashenko said.The president, who himself recovered from COVID-19, this time after being infected with the Omicron strain, said he may have contracted it while training with Belarusian hockey players. According to him, he feels normal now, “but my voice is a little hoarse, yesterday we had hockey practice again.”
