A death cult reignites its terror against Israeli civilians. The “Israeli-Palestinian conflict” is spinning out of control toward another possible all-out war. Blame should, of course, fall on the Palestinian terrorists operating from Gaza, who have once again fired hundreds of rockets inside Israel against civilian targets. After a barrage of rocket attacks, the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) struck back. The Palestinians are complaining. Here we go again. The pattern is very familiar by now. Palestinians use a pretext to start a riot. The Israeli police and security forces respond proportionately. The Palestinians up the ante, prompting a further Israeli response. Then Palestinian terrorists in Gaza use the territory they control to launch rocket attacks into Israel against civilian targets. Israel warns the terrorists to stop the rocket fire, which the terrorists ignore. After the Israeli military retaliates proportionately in an effort to target the terrorists responsible for the rocket attacks and their facilities, Palestinian government leaders cry foul.
Vote to oust Liz Cheney about democracy, how far party will go for ex-president It’s almost over. A rare remaining ember of resistance to Donald Trump in the upper echelons of the U.S. Republican Party is on the verge of being extinguished. Republicans will vote Wednesday on whether to purge Liz Cheney from her position in the party leadership in the House of Representatives. It would have been a mind-boggling turn of events not too long ago. She’s very conservative. She’s been a fierce partisan and is the daughter of a former vice-president. Yet party leaders are now angling to replace her with the less-conservative Elise Stefanik. The episode sheds light on the state of American politics in 2021 — and into the former president’s dominance over one of the country’s two major parties.
Risk of blood clots tied to AstraZeneca shot now estimated at 1 in 55,000 in Canada The future use of the AstraZeneca-Oxford COVID-19 vaccine in Canada is now in question due to concerns over the increased risk of rare but severe blood clots connected to the shot, an unpredictable future supply and a significant amount of other vaccines. Alberta was the first province to confirm it would stop administering first doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine, citing a scarcity of supply. The province will instead prioritize mRNA vaccines like Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna while reserving existing AstraZeneca for second doses. Ontario’s Chief Medical Officer Dr. David Williams announced in an impromptu news conference late Tuesday afternoon the vaccine would also no longer be offered to Ontarians as a first dose and future supply would instead be reserved for optional second shots. But unlike Alberta, Ontario’s decision was made largely due to the rising rate of the rare but serious blood-clotting condition connected to the shot known as vaccine-induced immune thrombotic thrombocytopenia (VITT).
A spokeswoman for the Extinction Rebellion group on Tuesday said one of its cofounders had been arrested by officers from London’s Metropolitan Police. The group, whose stated aim is to use nonviolent protest to force government action on climate change, has staged numerous high-profile protests in the UK, US and other developed nations including Germany. The group said Bradbrook had been arrested on charges relating to its action campaign against financial institutions known as “Money Rebellion.” “Extinction Rebellion cofounder Gail Bradbrook was arrested by officers from the Metropolitan Police at her home in Stroud at around 5:30 a.m. this morning for conspiracy to cause criminal damage and fraud in relation to Money Rebellion’s debt disobedience,” a spokeswoman for the group said.
Betraying parents while working out “karma and deeply seated issues on the cellular level.” In November, the American Federation of Teachers was touting Kelly Trautner’s views on safe school reopenings. Earlier in the pandemic year, Trautner had promoted a webinar on a safe return to schools. By 2021, the AFT’s Director of Healthcare, was offering her own lessons on “yoga and pranayama practices” and “meditation and mindfulness”. As a certified yoga teacher and “Registered Karuna Reiki Master” (meaning she had mastered Stage III of Holy Fire of the pseudoscience which includes “healing past life issues” and “clearing cellular memories from the DNA”), this was something Trautner was qualified to do. But the AFT’s Director of Healthcare, occasional yoga teacher, executive coach, and master of the secret energy arts was telling the CDC under what conditions schools could be reopened. And she was doing it with the backing of the Biden administration.
An area of forest the size of France has regrown naturally across the world in the last 20 years, a study suggests. The restored forests have the potential to soak up the equivalent of 5.9 gigatonnes (Gt) of carbon dioxide — more than the annual emissions of the US, according to conservation groups. A team led by WWF used satellite data to build a map of regenerated forests. Forest regeneration involves restoring natural woodland through little or no intervention. This ranges from doing nothing at all to planting native trees, fencing off livestock or removing invasive plants. William Baldwin-Cantello of WWF said natural forest regeneration is often “cheaper, richer in carbon and better for biodiversity than actively planted forests”.
