The coronavirus could linger in the testicles, making men prone to longer, more severe cases of the illness, according to a new study. Researchers tracked the recovery of 68 patients in Mumbai, India, to study the gender disparity of the virus, which has taken a worse toll on men, according to a preliminary report posted on MedRxix, which hosts unpublished medical research papers that have not been peer reviewed. Dr. Aditi Shastri, an oncologist at Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx, and her mother, Dr. Jayanthi Shastri, a microbiologist at the Kasturba Hospital for Infectious Diseases in Mumbai,

A Democrat's dream come true! Democrats have hated men for over 2 generations. If this virus could only kill every man except for the Alan Alda types, the world would be perfect! One wonders when Naci and the Dem's will proclaim this is the silver lining in the COVID-19 pandemic?

Well, testicles do seem to make men more vulnerable to women, but you didn’t need a study for that.

[Video] Hundreds of sheep were caught on camera parading through the streets in Turkey Saturday night amid the country’s coronavirus lockdown. The astonishing footage shot in the city of Samsun was reposted to Twitter by Ragip Soylu, a reporter based in Turkey. The video, as of Sunday night, has been viewed nearly 2.5 million times. “Flock of sheep invades Turkey’s city of Samsun last night during the coronavirus lockdown,” wrote Soylu. The majority of sheep can be seen moving in the road at varying speeds. But some of the animals were spotted grazing in an adjacent city greenspace.

The porch pirates were spotted on surveillance footage approaching houses while wearing blue scrubs and lanyards with ID badges. One of the women wore gloves as she grabbed a package, according to images released by the Kennewick Police Department on Saturday. Police said they don’t believe the women are real nurses.

The COVID-19 pandemic is exposing what many have known for decades: Our education system is broken. But the situation also presents us with a silver lining: the opportunity to uncover the damaging influences and restore education. While millions of families are suddenly home schooling, it’s important to know that when our schools were elite and the envy of the world, we were a nation of home-schoolers and small, private, and independent schools. What happened? Government and labor unions intruded, claiming families and educators needed them. But do we? Theressah and Victor Ramirez say, “Absolutely not!” The Ramirez’s live with their two sons in a low-income, immigrant neighborhood in San Diego, California.
Stacey Abrams's embarrassing campaign
for the vice presidency

Posted by ladydawgfan 5/4/2020 6:51:51 AM Post Reply
No one has ever wanted to be vice president as much as Stacey Abrams. The Georgia Democrat, best known for her failed gubernatorial candidacy in 2018, has launched a full-fledged campaign for the vice presidency in recent weeks, telling every news channel that will book her why she thinks she’s cut out for the job. And in doing so, Abrams has proved why she’s not. Abrams’s media tour began back in February when Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic nominee, first mentioned his campaign was looking at Abrams. When asked if she’d want the job, Abrams didn’t shy away. “Of course, I want it,” she said at the time.
‘Some neurological problem’: Flynn lawyer

Posted by ladydawgfan 5/4/2020 6:46:33 AM Post Reply
A lawyer for former national security adviser Michael Flynn questioned special counsel Robert Mueller’s mental acuity as Flynn’s legal team seeks to dismiss the charges against him. “It seems like some neurological problem has evolved there for Mr. Mueller. I don’t know how soon that started. Ultimately, he is responsible for all of this because he was supervising the investigation,” Sidney Powell told John Catsimatidis on The Cats Roundtable radio show on Sunday. Flynn, who served as President Trump’s national security adviser for less than a month, pleaded guilty in 2017 to lying to the FBI about his conversations with a Russian diplomat before Trump entered the White House.

Modoc County in California announced last week that all businesses and churches might reopen, but people must keep a 6-foot distance from each other. Yuba and Sutter counties are now joining Modoc in reopening despite Newsom’s stay-at-home order that is still in effect. “We cannot wait for a vaccine without seeing extreme economic damage done to our community. The consequences of waiting will be additional health concerns brought on by stress and the very real dilemma for those with limited resources whether to buy life-saving food or life-saving medicines,”

When Abraham Lincoln issued his Emancipation Proclamation he was criticized by abolitionists for not issuing a more sweeping order. He refused to do so, asking “If I take the step, must I not do so . . . without any argument, except the one that I think the measure politically expedient, and morally right? Would I not thus give up all footing upon constitution or law? Would I not thus be in the boundless field of absolutism? Could this pass unnoticed, or unresisted?” Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer stepped into this boundless field at the end of April.

The Russell Building is the home of the Kennedy Caucus Room. After Senator Ted Kennedy’s death, the ‘Kennedy’ part was added to the Caucus Room to honor the notorious sexual predator whose actions had led to the death of Mary Jo Kopechne. Mary Jo was one of the many young women drawn to public service by the idealistic speeches of the Kennedy clan’s political scions only to suffer at their hands.

We have an election to win here. The president has always asked when surrounded by his ardent supporters: Is there anything more fun than a Trump rally?” The response is—was—over the top. The fanfare that greets the question eclipses even the uproarious approval that occurs when Trump turns the media’s baleful eye back on them at the rallies, letting the hate-Trump press experience firsthand a microdose of the macro loathing that routinely shows up in polls. The rallies are fun—were fun—because they’ve always been about winning. Winning America-first style. Companies and jobs returning stateside. The documents of a parasitic regulatory regime shredded.

Last week I wrote about a new constellation of leftist philanthropy trying to influence the rules of the 2020 election, including pushing vote-by-mail, paying reporters to deny that voter fraud exists, and lobbying Congress to federalize state power over elections. Less than 24 hours later, I saw these dollars in action – through a smear by the propagandists at ProPublica. ProPublica is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) posing as a newsroom. It is the new model in a changing media landscape, where groups like George Soros’ Foundation to Promote Open Society give ProPublica hundreds of thousands of dollars and ProPublica does what the funders ask.

What are we to make of the dire predictions of President Donald Trump’s political doom — that he doesn’t stand a chance for reelection in November? I’ve read numerous mainstream media reports gloating over polls that show presumed Democratic nominee Joe Biden surging and Trump plummeting. I’m not one to casually dismiss polls, but I view them skeptically, especially given their poor track record in more recent elections, and pollsters’ brazen manipulation of them to sway public opinion. Don’t the wildly failed polls forecasting a Hillary Clinton victory in 2016 warrant our skepticism? Preelection polling was uniformly wrong, but so were Election Day exit polls.

When the postmortem is done on the media’s coverage of COVID-19 (and it will be), it will be clear that the virus was no Black Plague — it’s not even the flu on a bad year. SARS-CoV-2, which causes COVID-19, has killed 56,749 Americans as of Tuesday. That’s not good. But it’s not as bad as the 2017-2018 flu season, when 80,000 -plus perished. And it’s a long cry from what all the experts were warning about just a few weeks ago: First, they predicted 1.7 million Americans dead; then they redid the models (this time apparently entering a few more “facts”) and said 100,000-240,000 dead.

The Democratic political field is awash with designing women. Stacey Abrams, a former Georgia State House leader, is aggressively marketing herself as a potential vice president for Joe Biden — increasingly irritating those in the former veep’s orbit, an insider said. Meanwhile, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, one Biden’s 2020 presidential-race rivals, is rarely mentioned as a possible running mate. She has her sights set on something else — secretary of defense, say those familiar with her plans. Female former candidates have also been auditioning for the VP job — albeit more subtly than Abrams. On April 20, Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar came in for a chummy appearance on Biden’s podcast “Here’s the Deal,”

Never was former Vice President Joe Biden the 2020 dream. He promised electability and familiarity, which turned out to be good enough for a plurality of Democratic voters in the early primaries. But now that every other Democratic contender has dropped out and dutifully lined up behind the presumptive nominee, that choice might be sitting less comfortably. Biden is campaigning from his basement, giving interviews in which he occasionally moves past gaffes into total incoherence, raising questions about his mental fitness. Worst of all, evidence for a sexual assault allegation against him begins to mount.

People with low levels of vitamin D may be more likely to die from the coronavirus, according to a preliminary study. Researchers at Queen Elizabeth Hospital Foundation Trust and the University of East Anglia in England compared the average vitamin D levels of 20 European countries with COVID-19 mortality rates — and found “significant relationships” between vitamin D levels and the number of deaths caused by this infection. The study, which has not been peer-reviewed, notes sun-starved “Nordic” countries are among the most at risk. “We believe that we can advise vitamin D supplementation to protect against SARS-CoV2 infection,” the

“Where’s the Beef?” was once just a funny (yet successful) advertising slogan. But now, it could soon be an actual question on the minds of many shoppers.

The other day on my podcast, I spoke with Rose Skeeters, a licensed professional counselor in Philadelphia who used to be a single mother of a son. That son is now 10 years old, and Rose has been married for several years to a great man. This man, the boy's stepfather, is literally changing who Rose's son becomes. He arrived just in time. Growing up fatherless, or with a father a son rarely sees due to divorce or workaholism (yes, that's a thing), almost invariably stunts a boy's growth. The end result is almost always too much mother, which means boys will absorb all so much femininity
