Forty-eight percent of Democratic voters said the government should be able to fine or imprison those who publicly question the COVID-19 vaccine’s efficacy, while only 27% of all voters supported the proposal, according to the poll results.

The recent surge in COVID-19 cases caused by the new and more contagious omicron variant of the coronavirus has taught us at least one thing: There's still a dire need for effective vaccines against this potentially deadly disease. Here's why this matters for investors. Several companies are still looking to enter the coronavirus vaccine market, even though Pfizer and Moderna currently dominate it. One biotech that is slowly advancing a coronavirus vaccine candidate is Vaxart ( NASDAQ:VXRT ) . The San Francisco, CA-based company has significantly lagged the market in the past year, but could its lofty ambitions help it reverse course? YCharts .

Thailand’s Tourism and Sports Ministry has dusted off its calculator this morning and is predicting there will be at least 8 million tourists coming to Thailand this year. A few weeks ago they were predicting 10 – 5 million arrivals for 2022. Tourism and Sports Minister Phiphat Ratchakitprakarn made the random prediction at the same time he told Thai media he was pushing for the resumption of the Test & Go program next month. He will propose that at a meeting of the CCSA this Thursday.The Test & Go program was part of the Thailand Pass reentry options where fully vaccinated travellers could arrive in Thailand and only have to undergo one night of quarantine in an SHA+ hotel whilst waiting for their, hopefully, negative PCR test results.The Minister said that… The resumption of Test & Go in February still allows enough time to reach 8 million arrivals this year.The Public Health Ministry is proposing to totally delist cannabis from the narcotics list, paving the way for … [Read more...] about Thailand News Update | Legalising cannabis & 8 mil tourist to Thailand in 2022
This is what has to stop in 2022: using American schools and students as a prop for hysterical posturing. We’ve distanced ourselves, masked ourselves and vaccinated ourselves. We’ve all done what was asked of us. We cannot be conditioned or acculturated to a new ethic of constant crisis. It’s not a crisis. It’s a radicalism of ruin. We need an exit ramp and then we need to exit — soon. My 19-year-old daughter attends a public university which shall remain nameless. She is double vaccinated, boosted and has had COVID. And yet to re-enter her dorm room following Christmas Break she was required to take a rapid test, then a PCR test, and even then, won’t have any in-person classes for at least two weeks. What are we doing? Enough! Stop scaring the children! So many of my colleagues and I are constantly haunted by the same question: what will these students sitting in our classrooms say about these COVID-19 years when they get older? Surely, they will remember the masks and the … [Read more...] about ADAMS: The Cruelties Being Inflicted On Children In The Name Of COVID ‘Safety’ Will Handicap A Generation Of Students

This article first appeared in Forum, The Edge Malaysia Weekly, on January 17, 2022 - January 23, 2022. - A + A When students begin school, they learn about the environment through the three Rs — reduce, reuse and recycle — which is not necessarily within the science curriculum, but also broadly as discussions or topics in language classes. All schools now have recycling bins for waste to be separated into general refuse, paper and plastic. Many schools have taken it a step further by setting up herb gardens and selling the produce to the community to fund projects. Efforts are being made to turn their canteen waste into compost, which is then used as fertiliser for their herbs, plants and gardens — thus making the school landscape sustainable and conducive to learning. Students also learn why littering has a negative impact on health and the environment, and that a clean culture is a pleasurable trait to have. State education departments initiate annual … [Read more...] about Edunation: Science in motion: Rain, landslides, floods and ecotourism
On Thursday, Sept. 13, Senate Judiciary Democrats informed the public that they gave the FBI a letter containing damaging allegations against then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. This news did not keep Senator Chuck Grassley, the Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, from announcing that the committee will vote on the nomination the following Thursday, Sept. 20. By Saturday, Sept. 15, the Washington Post ran a story naming Christine Blasey Ford as an alleged victim. Republicans made it known that the committee is ready to accommodate Ms. Ford. The attorneys first told the Committee that Ford does not want to speak and that Ford fears to fly on an airplane. As such, the planned Sept.r 20 committee vote would not be able to take place on time. Now in October, after the fact, it is obvious that those tactics (sitting on the letter since July) and lies (that Ford fears to fly) were aimed to stall the nomination. But at the time, the GOP delayed the committee vote by 8 … [Read more...] about OPINION: The GOP Damaged Justice Kavanaugh
