Good News
The FDA said Phoenix Biotechnology provided evidence of a history of medicinal use of Nerium oleander (a sweet smelling but deadly flower leaves and stems) extracts and some evidence of preclinical and clinical studies, but the safety evidence was not "qualitatively and quantitatively" related to oleandrin as a supplement.
"Studies performed in advanced cancer patients generally cannot establish the safety of your ingredient in its intended population of normal healthy adults, and you did not provide any information to indicate that such extrapolation between different populations would be scientifically valid," the FDA's letter said.
The FDA's letter did not mention using the extract as a treatment for Covid-19.
My Pillow Guy Mike Lindell, who has no scientific background or medical training, has said previously he was so enthusiastic about the product as a Covid-19 treatment that he had started taking the extract as a prophylactic and has encouraged his friends to do the same.
He had brought his research to Housing and Urban Development Secretary Dr. Ben Carson, a member of the White House Coronavirus Task Force. Lindell said in July that Carson was "just amazed," and thought "it was very exciting seeing all the data."
After Lindell met with Trump in July, he described the President's response to the extract as "enthusiastic." Lindell told CNN in July that Trump wanted the FDA to "do its course."
When asked about the extract in August, Trump said he had "heard about" oleandrin and said, "We'll look at it, we'll look at it, we're looking at a lot of different things." It's unclear if Trump raised the issue with the FDA. If Mike Lindel follows the rules he could get rat shit approved as a food supplement if proven safe.

Here comes the mature pandemic. Even with the downsized administration numbers we are at 1,000 deaths a day and 6.2 million contagious infections in the USA. The total number of deaths could double by Jan. 1st. As Rap said the real number of deaths may never be known. Just as people are exhausted of keeping their guard up we will be going indoors, kids to schools, bars to open and gathering at the yule log, all while the number of infections sky rocket. Some call it the second wave. I call it the lingering Trump disaster. LTD

The western and mid western right wing militias are now in competition with each other. Some ride in pick up truck beds shooting mace and paintball guns into demonstrators. Some show up with live ammo. They are defending themselves and Trump, their excuser and chief.
Escalation will culminate in intensifying a fear of going to the polls. Militas are correct in assuming they have most police on their side. The use of the term civil war is discouraged and it is said that we are a country at war with itself. More blood may be shed as the election draws closer and Trump throws more troops into Portland and Chicago. It maybe won't be as bad as I think but it could make Trump President for four more years as more nazi like folk heros are created and memorialized while ignoring the dead mad crazy democrats and blacks. At least strategists like Steve Miller, McConnel, Bannon and Trump probably hope so.

Yesterday I watched from my parked car as a policeman in a cruiser detained an apparant exhausted vagrant and homeless black man and called for back up of two more police vehicles. There was no search or abuse that I witnessed but I did not not approach or obstruct the police and left early. There was simply the appearance and fear by the police. Even a firetruck showed up but soon left the scene. I feel like things are on a hair trigger. Perhaps it was just a humanitarian call to help the black man? If you didn't know, the police can now call paramedics to administer 500 mg of Ketamine to suspects. It has been fatal to small people but only renders larger people unconscious.
Things are moving just slow enough that Americans are getting used to it. It remains that Trump is the only one calling balls and strikes be it about violence or the pandemic. I guess I don't trust Trump to be Umpire and Chief.

I think taking out a lot of box elder bugs is also a worthwhile enterprise. I set up a mosquito trap this afternoon; it's passive, a bucket of water with some floating vegetation (weeds pulled today) that will rot and make the stagnant water all the more inviting to mosquitoes.

If you allow the natural world in you begin to see how the natural world treats you differently as if latent ancient DNA expresses knowledge that allows an interplay within and outside you. You see differently as though even the organization of a grasshopper cycle is more than the sum of its parts. The parts consist of a squad and multiple squads form a brigade that transforms plant life into flying protein packaged in chitin that need not go to waste. You can almost see their ancient contribution to a biome which is now extinct but was very much in harmony in their day. They were the food to new giant avian species in variations beyond belief millions of years ago

The smell of dead grasshoppers and crickets is distinctive. We had a couple of really bad years in Central Texas back in the early 1980s and the municipality would spray at night. You'd go to a store and walk past piles of dead bugs.

We almost had a dead squirrel yesterday. The girls are beginning to coordinate their routine and they were within a whisker of catching one reckless squirrel that didn't decide it would be smartest to stay up the tree. Dead squirrels stink also, though when I find those things I toss them into the creek for the turtles and fish or bury them in the compost pile.

I mentioned the pilot wave phenomenon regarding quantum strangenss that traces a future course and motion - the total opposite of the wake behind a boat.
pilot waves you can see pushing a particle.

Another view over time https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nmC0ygr08tE
If you will, we are a surfing in an ocean of time.

ABSTRACT

The investigation of dynamical systems has revealed a deep-rooted difference between waves and objects regarding temporal reversibility and particlelike objects. In nondissipative chaos, the dynamic of waves always remains time reversible, unlike that of particles. Here, we explore the dynamics of a wave-particle entity. It consists in a drop bouncing on a vibrated liquid bath, self-propelled and piloted by the surface waves it generates. This walker, in which there is an information exchange between the particle and the wave, can be analyzed in terms of a Turing machine with waves as the information repository. The experiments reveal that in this system, the drop can read information backwards while erasing it. The drop can thus backtrack on its previous trajectory. A transient temporal reversibility, restricted to the drop motion, is obtained in spite of the system being both dissipative and chaotic.


https://www.quantamagazine.org/fluid-experiments-support-deterministic-pilot-wave-quantum-theory-20140624/

With a little imagination you may see why I believe in a 3D model of time on a quantum scale.

Since I was 14 I always wanted know why the 2 slit experiment suggested a particle wave at 2 places at once. I'm glad to 'SEE' a clear cut answer. This news is 10 years old in the visual experiment and the de Broglio theory is 100 years old, so its not like gravity waves being discovered.

I have even done this in my kitchen. Just like this guy https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WIyTZDHuarQ

Thanks to California we've been coughing AND staying inside the shelter of the HVAC filters wherever we can. This is the first day in a week that the AQI is "healthy."

In the last week I've given away three human skulls, two matching mandibles, and two human femurs, and a boatload of trophies for head-bowling, bone-baseball, and the other sports the Legion has engaged in over the years.

I knew only the owner of one of the skulls in his pre-skull days, a noxious old f*rt named Samworthy. He's the one who started the rout at the Battle of Tinymatters, where General Sothoth burned all the crops so they wouldn't fall into the hands of the German Army. That was in Idaho in 1967.

I thought ChanteyLass lived in New Mexico. I'm probably thinking of someone else.

My niece married into a well-to-do Boston family (a house in Cambridge/Harvard Square, etc.) and they have a beach place in Rhode Island. I poked around on Google maps. It's in the realm of "just a house" a block or two from the beach, but I'm sure even those don't go for a song.

Funny you should mention submarines around Rhode Island,
because that reminds me of something else actually.
My brief acquaintance with Rhode Island,
especially the closer you get to the shore and the Long Island Sound,
is that there is more to it than
Newport and those impossible mansions rising seemingly out of the water's edge.

In places like Greater Providence, with its many suburbs,
or Pawtucket to the north and east,
there are whole enclaves of people who are
Italian-Americans by way of New York and New Jersey,
and submarines to them are sandwiches,
often very peppery spicy ones.

The word "holdup" makes perfect sense when describing the robbery of a stagecoach. If a stagecoach is moving from one place to another, its progress needs to be held up for a robbery to occur.

But why are bank robberies also called "holdups"? Banks don't move. They aren't going anywhere.
