Severe cases of COVID-19 are 2.5 times more likely in men with male-pattern baldness than those retaining a full head of hair, researchers have warned. Male-pattern baldness — or 'androgenetic alopecia' — is a common, genetically-determined form of hair loss that affects around 50 per cent of men aged over 50. [SNIP] Researchers found that male patients with a common biomarker linked to hair loss appeared to be significantly more susceptive to severe coronavirus infections. Specifically, these men were more sensitive to male hormones known as androgens, which is also found in patients with androgenetic alopecia.

Interesting article, connecting the genetics of baldness with COVID severity. If it is correct, it might lead to a therapy to ameliorate severe disease.

Sale of wigs (hair pieces) are up. Liken to the covid active after 10PM in the evening maybe if you purchase a 'hair piece' you fake out the covid into believing you have a full head of hair and it will move on to the white guilt, fat, tattooed girl with the green hair.

I'm half bald. Does that mean I'm only 1.25 times more likely to get a severe dose of COVID? Does being bald because you pulled your hair out count? Amazing what passes for science these days. Everyone wants to tell you what you see, and what you should think, and what you should believe, and what you should do. And I would think its a bad idea to listen to any of them.

I would guess it is more "old men".....which happens to correlate with 'bald men'. In my county, 57% of Wuhan deaths were 80+ years of age. 80% were 70+ years of age. Almost exactly 50-50 male-female ratio.

Controversial televangelist Ernest Angley has died at age 99, according to an announcement Friday on the Ernest Angley Ministries website. "Pastor, evangelist and author Rev.

"He touched multitudes of souls worldwide with the pure Word of God confirmed with signs, wonders, miracles and healings. He truly pleased God in all things." A native of Gastonia, North Carolina, Angley moved to Akron in 1954 and eventually turned into an internationally known figure, thanks largely to the syndicated TV broadcasts he launched in 1972.

The Ohio Republican Party on Friday passed resolutions censuring U.S. Rep. Anthony Gonzalez and calling on him to resign for voting in January to impeach ex-President Donald Trump. Gonzalez, from Rocky River, is the latest Republican to be rebuked by their state parties for supporting impeachment proceedings against Trump in January. Trump was impeached by the U.S. House for inciting a riot at the U.S. Capitol as President Joe Biden’s electoral victory was being certified, though the Senate did not vote to convict him. One resolution, offered by Shannon Burns of Strongsville, called on Gonzalez to resign, claiming he “betrayed his constituents,” “demonstrated a hidden vendetta against” Trump...

It is a resource that cannot be measured just by the power it produces. “Coal means everything to this part of the country," said coal miner Matt Huonker. “Without the coal mines in this area, there wouldn’t be an Ohio Valley I wouldn’t think," coal miner Michael Knight said.

Now, as President Joe Biden is pushing a more than $2 trillion infrastructure plan, with billions going toward green energy, those in the coal industry are concerned about what that could mean for the future of their jobs.

Every spring the Supreme Court seems to find itself in the headlines with consequential rulings on the horizon. This spring is no different. Over the coming weeks, major cases impacting various aspects of American life are poised for rulings. One of the biggest outstanding cases involves the Affordable Care Act. The Supreme Court ruled in 2012 that it was constitutional, but this is a new challenge. This challenge was brought by conservatives who believe the last ruling was only ruled constitutional because the Supreme Court interpreted the law as a tax. Congress has since removed tax penalties from the law and therefore critics believe justices now have grounds to strike down the entire law.

President Joe Biden's proclamation of the annual National Day of Prayer failed to include the word 'God', an omission that is drawing criticism from some religious leaders. Biden, a devout Catholic, typically ends his public remarks with the phrase 'May God bless you all, and God protect our troops' - but his proclamation for Thursday's Day of Prayer contained no such acknowledgement of a higher power. 'Prayer has nourished countless souls and powered moral movements — including essential fights against racial injustice, child labor, and infringement on the rights of disabled Americans,' the proclamation read in part.

Genetically modified mosquitoes have been released for the first time in the United States as part of an experiment to combat insect-borne diseases such as Dengue fever, yellow fever, and the Zika virus. UK-based biotechnology firm Oxitec, which is funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, said it released the mosquitoes in six locations in Monroe County’s Florida Keys: two on Cudjoe Key, one on Ramrod Key, and three on Vaca Key. It’s part of an effort to help tackle a disease-transmitting invasive mosquito population—the Aedes aegypti mosquito species—that’s responsible for “virtually all mosquito-borne diseases transmitted to humans,” according to the company.
