Dr. Mike Eades is Back with a New Blog

Mike Eades, who wrote a book on low-carb diets with his wife back when hamburgers were called a heart attack on a bun, is back with a new blog called The Arrow. Eades is a study wonk, a former clinician, a voracious reader, and his blog Protein Power was what I'd have picked if I could have only read one blog besides my own.  His latest post covers a cherry extract pain reliever, an AI image generator, the adherer effect, and more.

Use Green Tomatoes to Make Salsa

If you still have green tomatoes on the vine, you can make green salsa with them. It's tangier, the chunks are firmer than regular salsa, and it's unlike anything you can buy at the store. Recipe here .  Green tomato salsa.

More COVID Clawbacks and Backpedaling

Apologize, Reinstate, Compensate From the Epoch Times, UK Member of Parliament Danny Kruger said a few weeks ago , “ I put on record that in hindsight I am particularly ashamed of my vote to dismiss care workers who did not want to receive the vaccine. I very much hope that the 40,000 care workers who lost their jobs can be reinstated, and indeed compensated.” The Epoch Times says, "COVID-19 vaccinations were made compulsory for all staff working in care homes [nursing homes] in England from November 11, 2021." From the same article, Alan Miller of Together Declaration observes, "With over 40,000 lost and 165,000 shortfall, with 13,000 beds not being released in the NHS and 500,000 awaiting care they need to be, as our Together Care Workers campaign insists: apologised to; reinstated; and compensated." Yet "some care homes are still insisting on no jab no job policies." It's now widely accepted that COVID vaccines do not stop spread; the fact has bee

Knives are out for Forced Vax Fanatics

"If you can't get the right answer, you're no use to anyone," said my thermodynamics professor. I would add that if you don't know what you're talking about, you have no business lecturing anyone.  Such common sense is lost on Professor Emily Oster, who wrote this tone-deaf tweet: That may be the mother of all ratios. July 2021: Professor Oster advocated for coerced vaccinations:  Oster, whose Twitter bio says she's an "unapologetically data-driven" economist at Brown University, may have been in the dark about COVID in July 2021, but I--with an undergrad degree from a state university and no formal training in statistics--was writing about the vaccines' lack of efficacy , the fact they didn't stop spread , and vaccine injuries among study participants . As far back as April 2020, I wrote that it was clear that the risk of healthy kids getting a bad case of COVID seemed to be blown out of proportion . If I could figure these things out,

Twitter, Minerals, and a New Sweetener

Twitter under New Ownership "Let the good times roll!" -Elon Musk, October 28 Twitter was one of the best sources of information for me during the pandemic. I found journalist Alex Berenson and others there whose information, even with Twitter's censorship, helped guide me through with accurate information. Now some are in a tizzy because Elon Musk bought Twitter and promised to restore free speech to the platform. Twitter's new Head of Safety and Integrity tweeted, "Over the last 48 hours, we’ve seen a small number of accounts post a ton of Tweets that include slurs and other derogatory terms. To give you a sense of scale: More than 50,000 Tweets repeatedly using a particular slur came from just 300 accounts"  (emphasis added). But if it's like "the gates of hell opened," I just haven't seen it in my feed--but then, I don't look for fights and I don't troll, scold or dox people. There's still the option to block people or simpl

Clawbacks have Started

Victories are happening in some unlikely places. The City of New York played stupid games denying natural immunity, pretending that COVID vaccines stopped spread, and coercing people to get an experimental vaccination--unless they were an athlete or performing artist. Today, the City won its stupid prize : Staten Island Supreme Court Justice Ralph Porzio called the rule "arbitrary and capricious" and a violation of the state's separation of powers doctrine. He ordered 16 fired City employees to be immediately reinstated with back pay. All 16 of the employees had documented natural immunity to COVID. New York City, having fired over 1,750 employees for not being vaccinated, looks like it's in a lot of trouble.  [T]he ex-employees’ lawyer, Chad LaVeglia, said that “every city employee who has been terminated because of the mandate could bring civil actions against the city.” “Litigation involving the other city employees would cost the city at least hundreds of million

My New Favorite Cold Medicine

Regular readers might remember my bouts with respiratory illnesses: bronchitis that hung on for months, colds that wouldn't go away, sinus infections so frequent that I had sinoplasty many years ago (it didn't stop my sinus infections), and even a week in the hospital with a sinus infection when I was a kid. The sickest I ever felt was when I had the flu at age 17. As someone (maybe Dr. Eades) recently described, I remember where I was and what I was doing when it came on.  Last week when I felt a cold coming on, I figured I'd be sick for several days. I was tired and starting to get congestion and a sore throat. But it went away 12 hours later and didn't come back.  Photo from Unsplash . Maybe it was short COVID. Kidding aside, the only difference is that I've been taking Ideal Immunity , a probiotic made by Biotiquest. (I'm not an affiliate.)
