Yes, it's probably over for the short term. The law passed or about to be passed in the central government legislature in Beijing is essentially authorization to over-ride any local laws that conflict with the current leadership's definition of 'national security'. As we know from right here in the USA, 'national security' is a magic password to do what you want. Hong Kong cannot hope to resist t

What happened: 1) China managed to solve its internal political problems and unify the mainland (1949, end of the civil war) 2) China built up enough military strength that Britain realized it would be hopeless to try to hold Hong Kong against an attempt to take it back by force. (~1979 when the Brits started to make diplomatic appeals to Beijing to allow them to continue to administer the

No one seems to know what happened to randompHactor.

That's a pretty large risk for the mere 'distraction' from other problems. India is right on China's border and the one of their neighbors with enough population to be a threat. Nor is Modi the sort to take an insult and back off. Meanwhile, Ladakh is mostly a frozen desert. There is nothing of value to be gained by fighting over an empty plateau at ~10,000 feet. It has no known mineral resources

Hmm, does Xi really want to start a major military/diplomatic crisis right now? The virus has already hurt the image of China abroad, and Xi domestically. His response was late, and the other major players in the Communist party might be questioning his leadership behind closed doors. He's about to crack down on Hong Kong, too. Now in the case of Hong Kong he probably needs to do that precisely b

David Frum continues to produce the best over-view: Quote The System Failed the Test of Trump Have you ever known anyone swindled by a scam? It’s remarkable how determined they remain to defend the swindler, and for how long—and how they try to shift the blame to those who tried to warn them of the swindle.

Well, yeah, we've known here (this board) since long before Trump that the Republican message is well-orchestrated from somewhere or other. The right-wing Trolletariat marches in lockstep on nearly all messages. Pete/Archaic diverging on the Coronavirus is the first break I can remember in their ranks in many years. It would take quite a bit of research to find another.

Heh, he's using what he learned from reading the QAnon article I posted in the GT&P board. That's one of the stock phrases of 'Q' and his followers. I have to agree that much of the nattering on this board about the big crack-down coming on the opposition to Trump reads like QAnon copypasta.

I had not heard that Kerry was abroad trying to influence anyone. There is a law against private citizens trying to interfere with US diplomatic policy. But it's never been used successfully in court, and there is strong suspicion it would be tossed out if a direct challenge reached the Supreme Court. This seems especially likely if Kerry is working for some NGO rather than acting in his own name

Um, no I don't remember that. Never did it. As a kid I just ran out in the sun when it was warm enough to play outdoors. April/May or so. :) Like most people in the 'developed' world, I got most of my lifetime sun exposure as a kid through simply being outdoors. (But then I hear that isn't true anymore, childhood has changed and even young kids live like mole people now.)

I'd say the indoors time is the problem, not the sunscreen. If we were not hiding from the sun all the time, our skin would not be so weak and susceptible to damage. And we would not have such a need for sunscreen at the slightest sun exposure. Here's a thought I've had for some time but never had the opportunity to articulate: Why is it that we understand that sitting on your butt all year

The obvious solution is transfusion. Give them more red cells to try to keep up their ability to absorb O2. This has other risks, of course, since someone else's blood might have other pathogens in it. And the sheer quantity of blood needed for even the extreme cases has got to be far beyond any demand caused by any past disaster since we've had the ability to perform transfusions safely.

Unless things get exceptionally bad, most people don't seem to regard their swollen gums as a problem. They seem to be able to just live with minor cases of gingivitis. On the other hand, chronic foot pain is likely to bring people to the doctor. So the prevalence of inflammation in the mouth is probably higher than anywhere else in the body.

The inflammation caused by gum disease (gingivitis) can extend into other parts of your body. Cardiovascular problems may well be aggravated by poor dental hygiene, if not outright caused by it. There is also the possibility of links to Alzheimer's or other forms of dementia. Chronic inflammation anywhere in the body is a real risk factor for a wide range of health problems.

Indonesia? The entire country is very close to the equator. In order to be deficient in vitamin D someone living there would have to already be an invalid stuck indoors, and therefore not getting much vitamin D would be an inevitable side-effect. Did they make any effort in this study to separate people who were already sick from people who didn't get much exposure to the sun for other reasons?

More importantly, which this article doesn't bring up, the virus has been shown to be capable of infecting animals including domestic pets. Even if the animals don't experience serious symptoms, that means it can survive without human hosts. The only diseases we have successfully eradicated are single-host diseases. Smallpox, for example, does not infect any other animals. It's a human-only patho
