Something Scary Was Lurking Unbeknownst to Me: The Corona Virus

I couldn’t help but obsess over it. I had the feeling I was immersed in a science-fiction movie. I had read the short story “The Birds” by Daphne du Maurier, a story that had always impressed me, a narrative set in the UK that was later made into a Hitchcock film. The short story seemed to teach a valuable message, but I never thought it would have been directly applicable to my life in 2020. The attack by birds in the movie could have been a representation of the Corona Virus that was creeping around the corner in 2020. Maybe I should’ve watched more TV shows about pandemics, I thought.

Five Global Changes COVID 19 May Bring About

As the deadly pathogen Covid-19 keeps spreading like a wildfire, it is likely to bring about some significant changes in the way we perceive things and lead our lives. Therefore, it is timely to reflect on the likely changes the dreadful pandemic will force upon the world.

My Experience Paying a Bill in an Italian Village During the Corona Virus / COVID-19 Crisis

Actions in movies are often astounding, such as when a middle-aged, leading lady performs significant feats that would be impossible in real life. One day during the COVID-19 pandemic in Italy, I felt like the mundane act of going out to get some money to pay a bill was a great feat.

COVID-19 Life in Italy During the Second Week of Lock-Down

Perhaps readers across the world wonder what it’s like to be in Italy now that the borders are practically closed, amidst the menace of COVID-19. This article aims to give them a glimpse of what life is like here. There is plenty of food that would have been shipped abroad if the virus hadn’t threatened trade, and people are enjoying intimate meals at home with their families while there are no longer any visits to bars for the popular evening aperitif. Children and famous artists alike record songs to be shared with the world on YouTube. Likewise, multitudinous Italians stand on their balconies, singing cheerful songs that are shown on TV, giving the world hope. Yet, the dreadful news comes in about those innocent people who passed away in cities like Bergamo due to the dreadful Corona Virus.

Black Death II?

One of the base assumptions today concerning the latest health and medical emergency, this Coronavirus, is that it is very relevant and reminiscent to the Black Death of the 12th and 13 century. During the early middle ages personal hygiene was almost non existent, sanitation, there was none, and the close proximity of people in villages and towns, like London, and Paris made the Black Death such a virulent and deadly plague. The similarity between Coronavirus and the Black Death is too uncanny not to ignore.

Of Herd Immunity, Plasma Therapy, Vaccines And Drugs For COVID-19!

The virus has caused havoc on planet Earth before the humans came to understand and know much about it. Therefore, various issues concerning herd immunity, plasma therapy, development of vaccines and use of repurposed drugs are being discussed and experimented continuously all over the globe…

COVID 19: Now The ‘Doubt Virus’ Must Be Exterminated!

They desperately need to go back to the sweet normal times and live happily ever after, and therefore they jump to accept and believe fully when some motivated souls offer that ‘COVID 19 is a hoax, it’s nothing more than an annual influenza’. Thus the ‘doubt virus’ is created and the social media as always helps it spread-at times much faster than the killer virus…

COVID-19 Vaccine Race: Russia Declares Sputnik V Breakthrough!

The announcement, as expected, set off a chain of reactions around the world, ranging from ‘alarming’ to ‘shocking’. Of course, there are at least two valid reasons for this skepticism among the top scientists and health experts of the world…

COVID-19 Vaccine: Optimism Grows As Two More Candidates Enter Final Human Trials Phase!

Being optimistic is a positive sentiment, and so, there is nothing wrong in hoping for that magic cure for the Coronavirus which has displayed a range of strains, from mild to serious to fatal, making it thus an extremely dicey party to deal with…

Planet Earth Closing In On COVID-19?

Till now, there has been no proven cure for the virus, but the repurposed drugs and the improvements in healthcare infrastructure have significantly contributed towards reducing the fatality rate, enabling patients to recover in increasing numbers and containing the disease in various worst affected countries. We will discuss here some positive developments that really are pointers to a possible conquest by humankind over the killer virus…

Terrorism Won’t Stop While Religions Dominate Societies

Australians are possibly as free in their country as anyone in the world and yet many continue to tie themselves to religious hokus pokus based on lies, ancient beliefs, and false gods. The New Testament was compiled and scribed by Jerome, the ‘doctor’ of the Catholic Church. Based on the invention of Jesus Christ by Constantine, identified as 666 in Revelation 13:12-18, he used torture and terrorism and the Vatican continued the practice.

Why Roman Emperor Constantine Is 666

Speculations about the man who bears this number are wide and include things like that of the Pope, based on his title. Following my reincarnation and strong link to the Spirit of the Universe many visions were given to me during a time of great learning. One such vision was while dressing one morning when the words CONSTANTINE IS 666 appeared in large black letters before my eyes.

How Turmeric Is Measuring Up In Western Science

Turmeric has been in the fore front of ancient medicine in cultures from Asia, India, Africa and in the middle east for thousands of years. After an extensive study to how this spice has been used we decided to look into how cucumin looks in the western scientific community.

The Fat Skinny Bitch!

In 1976, I went on a world tour and chose to take with me a minimum of clothes which I packed into my luggage so, anything I needed I would buy overseas. On the last phase of my journey, I departed from a city in Italy and went by hovercraft to Dover, England to meet up with a coach tour which headed towards London. I was booked in for a two-week stay at a hotel, and towards the end of my visit, I had to find other accommodation.

Do Your Homework, Dems

Democrats want to unseat Trump. They need a broader view of America in a global world. Trump is destroying relations and are uninformed about Obama & immigration.

Master Con Don

Trump may be a master con man with a dedicated following but he is no religious or cult leader. He can be defeated as he has been repeatedly throughout his life by a careful exposure of his scamming tactics.

White Hot in the Melting Pot

The world’s melting pot is boiling over with rage. This is a microcosm of a 2019 worldwide phenomenon. Minorities are increasing in numbers, strength and influence. Privileged whites are threatened with losing status and they react in line with the outworn principle that might makes right The conflict can end in progress for humanity as a whole just as did the American Civil War regardless of enormous new challenges that arose in its wake…

Moscow Towers Over Trump

US President Donald Trump defies US intelligence warnings that Russian Vladimir Putin is a threat to American democracy. Trump is known to aggressively pursue what he wants. He desperately wanted a Trump Tower in Moscow way before he ran for President. A construction project was signed in 2005 and Memorandum of Understanding was signed in 2016. The project was put on ice with the election of Trump. The Trump presidency just could be an elaborate scheme between Trump and Putin to get Trump the tower he wants and Putin to get his opportunity to dominate the world starting with the US.

Champ Turns Chump With Trump

America was respected as great before con artist Donald Trump duped gullible Americans into believing they needed him to make life superb. Two years later, the country is a global laughingstock known for cruelty to immigrants, children allies and the environment. The American people can help each other to oust Trump by boldly pointing out the absurdity of the lies he uses to keep his base enthused for him.

Join Noble Centered Leaders Working for Compassion Peace and the Good of All Humanity

We’re facing an international crisis of epic proportions. Conflict, racism, hate, war and disaster are displacing more people whether refugee or citizen than at any time in human history. The FISH Foundation Global Nation believes that this is an issue that demands action NOW (No Opportunity Wasted).

The Indian National Anthem Was Really a Paen to King George

The National Anthem of written by ” Guruji” Ravindranath Tagore was, in reality, a Paen to the King of England. Later Tagore changed his tune after 25 years and claimed it was for n The Indian National Anthem ” Jana Gana Mana” is sung everyday. I am afraid very few know that this anthem has a history and its not very nice.

Democracy Built Over 1000 Years. A Rogue Parliament, Corruption, Foreign Influence Destroyed This

The loss that we have seen is quite profound. It’s not Brexit although this has to be delivered, it was democracy, democracy is a staple of British political diet. That to have cavalierly dis-guarded this fundamental basis of our heritage, have done irreparable damage to Great Britain’s worldwide standing. I don’t mean countries are in shock, I mean countries are wondering why they are constantly lectured to about democracy, why Cuba, Zimbabwe, etc are belittled the way they are for ignoring their people. The UK has done just that! Compounded by what appears electoral fraud in Peterborough. Have we indeed opened the door to despots to oppress their public from all corners of the world.

In Praise of Age and Biden

Youth is impatient, raring to go and make a mark on the world. Experience makes for proven character. Current US Prez Trump has shown his character to be corrupt. Prez candidate Joe Biden has shown himself to be morally solid. The difference is that Trump lies and aides call it spin. Biden tells the truth complete with the human quality of error.

Hate and The World in Turmoil – What Should We Expect to Happen?

There is little doubt now that the world is in chaos. The economy is not the only thing that is collapsing as humanity itself is taking a huge toll. Hatred is rising as governments feed it.

Man Has Spent The Planet On Which We Depend For Life

Not many want to hear about the horror of money as they depend on it for their lifestyle and to survive in a world run by economic enterprise and wealth creation. That’s why this message is hard to take compared to that of the religious institutions that state that money is good. This contrast is results from the Spirit of the Universe versus man’s ideas and inventions.

Conservative, Right-Wing Governments Are Killing the World While Silencing the Majority

History has many lessons to teach us but who wants to know? When visions of WWII and the holocaust are shown my thoughts turn to how placidly people boarded the trains to their death. To be that willing to obey a handful of soldiers with guns many thousands preferred to live that extra bit longer than to die for their cause.

Who Stands Out As Best Candidate for President of the USA?

In the wake of the disastrous and extremely damaging Trump Administration and performance the next president needs to be someone special. He or she has to be young, vibrant, well-educated, capable, and fit. That rules out all of those 70 years and older.

Blow That Whistle!

Donald Trump was declared unfui for office before his election. He has run roughshod over the Constitution for over two years. Whistleblowers are finally coming forward despite the personal, professional. career and social obstacles they battle before their message breaks through. In particular now, they weather threats from the most powerful position in the world. Only an avalanche of brave warriors protected by the most upright legal counsel can stop the erosion of public trust..

Will The President Pay The Price to “Denuclearize” North Korea?

Kim Jong Un is not without options when dealing with an American president who demands that North Korea remove and destroy all its nuclear weapons. That small country will maintain its nuclear arsenal just as Israel, Pakistan, and India have.

Catholic Lies and Murders That the World Tolerates

The history of religion is one of extreme torture, murder, and genocide. It is happening now and has done throughout the modern era. The Catholic Church is the worst culprit of all yet it survives with governments everywhere in agreement with it.

Today, All The World’s A Stage

Someone once said, I think it was Shakespeare, “All the world is a stage.” To which one could add all the world is a stage but, we are all bit players. There have been many lead roles that have always changed hands and some have actually changed the course of history.

Crown Prince of Arabia Started His Quest for a Place in History With Arrest of 38 Corrupt Princes

Crown Prince carries out a veritable coup as he consolidates his power in the quest for modernization Prince Mohammed Bin Salman has moved with lightning speed, something unheard off in Saudi Arabia earlier as he orders detention 38 prominent businessmen including 11 princes. Prince Mohammed Bin Salman has sent a clear message that the old way of doing business and trying to keep Saudi Arabia under wraps are over. The Prince who is only 32 is one of the modern educated men in the Kingdom.

The New Moon Festival Provokes Terrorist Attacks

Few Christians would associate Easter with the new moon, and yet that is exactly the timing of it. Constantine, who established the Catholic Church in 325 AD and invented Jesus Christ (Revelation 13:12-18), altered the time of Easter (Eye Star) from the equinox to the first full moon after it. This was to hide the roots of the new religion from that of the old, which is the Islamic religion of Babylon.

Northern Ireland: Wilson’s Proposal and Brexit

The general public in the UK became aware of troubles in Northern Ireland in the late 1960s when stories first appeared of atrocities committed by the irregular Irish Republican Army (IRA). Bombings and shootings became frequent occurrences and the troubles spread to the Republic of Ireland and to the UK mainland of Great Britain. Soon the IRA militants, who were Catholic Republicans, were opposed by a Protestant Loyalists militia and the atrocities multiplied. A long-running, if low-level, civil war might have been averted if more people had listened to the then Prime Minister, Harold Wilson. His proposal would have solved the British Government’s current Irish problem as it seeks a way out of the European Union.

Assessing the Chinese View of India

Background Geographical divide India and China have been neighbors for over 4000 years. One can say that they had been living together like two dormant dinosaurs since the dawn of history.

It is incredible to think that in a country which is many, many centuries old, which claims to have civilised the world, which employs for its administration, management and government, some of the most expensively educated people on the planet. A country with top tier scientists, world class military, think tanks and envied universities who’s inventors gave the planet the internet, the English language and more..

Trump’s Tariffs: A Move in the Right Direction

When Donald Trump won the US presidential election the whole world was dismayed. Few people outside of the USA expected anything good to come of it and for a year and a half one disaster followed another. Millions of US citizens were deprived of affordable healthcare, nothing was done to lessen the widespread slaughter caused by lax gun control, a ban was imposed on immigrants from selected Moslem countries, the USA was withdrawn from the Paris Agreement on climate change to give free-rein to the polluting oil and coal industries, and America’s NATO allies were subjected to severe criticism while President Putin of Russia was treated as a friend. These were all actions that many people both expected and feared. But now, in introducing tariffs on imported goods Mr Trump has taken a small step towards a better world.

South Africa Today

It is difficult to continually be pilloried and demonised whilst under the threat of land expropriation without compensation whilst paying a disproportionate percentage of personal tax in relation to the masses that don’t. The equation is not dissimilar to that of 80% of the wealth is held by 20% of the population, except in this case only 20% pay tax, and in this case the burden is borne by those who have historically made this country’s wealth not plundered it.

Evacuate Manus and Nauru Rally (Sydney Town Hall, July 21)

A couple of weeks ago our church was privileged to have a visit from Lebanese Sufi master, Sheikh Nour Kabbani, and, together with him, members of our community signed the “Charter of Compassion”- a document developed by Karen Armstrong some ten years ago that urges communities and governments to reaffirm the central importance of compassion in our common life. Tragically, on almost the same day, Australia’s Home Affairs minister, Peter Dutton, (in The Weekend Australian) urged out nation to beware of the ‘danger of compassion’ when it comes to our treatment of asylum-seekers and refugees – suggesting that…

Kennan and Containment

George F. Kennan, a Foreign Service Officer, formulated the policy of containment, the fundamental United States strategy for driving away the cold war (1947-1989) with the Soviet Union. Kennan’s suggestions, which became the foundation of the Truman administration’s international policy, initially came to public interest in 1947 in the type of an anonymous contribution to the journal Foreign Affairs, the so called X Article. The primary component of any United States policy toward the Soviet Union, Kennan wrote, should be that of a long term, patient though firm as well as vigilant containment of Russian expansive tendencies.

Historical Facts on the Partition of India and Role of Gandhi, Patel and Nehru

India became one nation thanks to the rule of the British, who in1757 after winning the famous Battle of Plassey, became the omnipotent power in the subcontinent.

Is It Possible to Negotiate Fair Trade Practices With China?

The debate over whether the USA or China stands to lose the most in a trade war is really beside the point. The real question is which country is likely to succeed in getting its way as the trade war becomes more protracted and entrenched, which appears to be the case currently.

Fear Has Taken Control of the World Order

It is now more evident than ever that most people are for the most completely ignorant and babies when it comes to understanding what life is about. While blame is cast on politicians and governments it is humanity that has brought the world to this end. Mobs charging like animals are everywhere, murder and mayhem is engulfing countries, the economy is tethering on a precipice, and we are running out of room to accommodate the masses.

Why Trump Is Not to Blame for The Woes and Violence in The USA and Elsewhere

Many are quick to point the finger at Trump for what is happening in the USA. The rise of White Supremacy, the hard-line against migrants, the decline of power, the anger and discontent about his appointments, and so on. He is also changing many things that will take decades to undo if and when he is deposed.

Why Should The Catholic Church Survive?

It not only harbours thousands of paedophile priests but its primary goal is power and control and it is the richest organisation on earth because of its lies. It has nothing to do with God!

Is Tiger Woods Back?

That’s what all the headlines on stories about his victory a couple of weeks ago were claiming. We live in a society that overvalues the present moment and cannot wait to jump to conclusions.

How Many Catholic Pedophile Priests Are Serving Jail Time?

The facts are the RCC was founded by pedophile bishops who appear in a painting of the Council of Nicaea with each and every one accompanied by his ‘boy’ sexual partner.

Could Khalistan – A Sikh State Have Been a Reality

Khalistan is a bird that was flown away. It was an ill-defined concept that could not have borne but there was a time before 1946 when Khalistan or the state of Punjab could have become an independent entity. Punjab was the biggest province in North India but I think people must know that neither the Congress Party not the Muslim League ruled Punjab.

Anxiety Over Brexit – Deeper Issues

British people have been expressing unease about the state of their country. One possible reason may be that nothing much else is happening in politics because of anxiety over Brexit. The prospect of economic recession is reducing confidence among many about their future prospects.

Accounting Implication of a Global Financial Crisis

The term ‘Global Financial Crisis’ means economic scarcity where there exists a continuous drawback against strategic economic growth in the world. The backgrounds with regard to the crisis had been reported in business journals for many months before September 2008, with the emphasis about the financial stringency of U.SA and world investment banks, insurance firms and mortgage Securities Companies consequent to the sub prime business crisis. Introducing with some evil critics against the business failures predominated by misapplication of risk controls for bad debts, col-lateralization of debt insurance and fraud, large financial institutions in the United States and other countries in the world had faced a credit crisis and a slowdown in economic activity.

How many times have we heard about the importance of learning from history, yet, we continue to witness, our failure, to do so, in a relevant, sustainable, significant manner? The lessons we should have learned, from looking at the history and events related to Berlin, and Germany, as a whole, should make us more alert, and prepared to do, whatever is necessary, to protect our rights, freedoms, and liberties, which Americans, take for granted.

McDonough: Trump ‘the freely elected president’

The Multipolar World Economy

The global economy currently is undergoing a great transformation in terms of economic structure, power, and influence. The economies that have been commonly called ” emerging markets” appear to have finally emerged and are coming into their own in terms of their contributions to global economic and financial activity. The international corporate and landscape and even the shape of the international financial system as they redefine the international economy has become even more important to grasp with this phenomenon engenders, both for the major developing economies at the forefront of this change, as well as for those especially the least developed economies that remain at the periphery. The phenomenon of shifting growth drivers is not a new one, at least from the perspective of global economic history.

The Welfare State in Europe

The “Welfare State” refers to the set of interventions organised by the state that are targeted for guaranteeing the provision of a least amount of expert services to the population by a method of social safety. The beginnings of this particular method of social safety may be traced back again to the conclusion of the 19th century in the Germany of Chancellor Bismarck. Nevertheless, this program just became generalized in Europe following World War II.

Evaluating Lenin in the Indian Context

Vladimir Lenin has an important place in the 20th century. Unfortunately, his name is associated with more negative qualities than positive qualities. He was an intellectual with a formidable brain and he wrote many books and papers during his time in Russia.

Conservatism Is the New Counter-Culture

When people say I have “values”, what are they talking about? “Values” are the principles in which we hold dear. Values are characteristics that we hold admirable in ourselves and others.

Vladimir Putin

Russian leader Vladimir Putin was born in 1952 in St. Petersburg (then referred to as Leningrad). After graduating from Leningrad State Faculty, Putin started the career of his in the KGB as an intelligence officer in 1975. Putin rose to the best ranks of the Russian federal government after enrolling in President Boris Yeltsin’s administration in 1998, being prime minister in 1999 before taking over as president. Putin was once again appointed Russian prime minister in 2008, as well as retained the hold of his on power by generating reelection to the presidency in 2012.

Positive and Negative Effects of Globalization

Globalization refers to the general growth in addition to modernization of a country as a total entity. The main reason why globalization is critical is since it can help a community in getting international recognition and also have an impact to performance. This, nonetheless, could be projected in both good and also bad ways. The controversy on whether globalization is actually bad or good for just about any specific society has been happening since ages even though many individuals worry on the advantages of globalization; others shell out much more interest towards the compromises and chances of achieving globalization.

Poverty in Africa, a Major Global Concern

Poverty in Africa does not only refer to the lack of luxuries and fine things that the people of developed and many developing nations possess today, but the situation in Africa is way deeper and uglier than what one suspects it to be. Poverty in Africa in its truest sense means, even the lack of basic amenities such as clean drinking water, sanitization and enough food to survive. As a fun fact, an average European citizen earns three times of what an average African does by burning all his sweat, blood and with it, the dreams of a better life.

The Future of Syria
