Censors crack down on 'Plandemic' conspiracy documentary. What's so dangerous about it?
rt.com | 2020-05-09
Pulled from YouTube, censored in internet searches, and denounced by every single mainstream media outlet, what kind of information could make everyone so mad about 'Plandemic'? We watched it to find out. | A 23-minute teaser clip of the documentary went viral on Wednesday evening, notching up tens of millions of views across multiple platforms.

The success of early infant testing and cART initiation strategies is severely limited by subsequent cART non-adherence in HIV-infected children. Although there are practical challenges to administering paediatric cART formulations, these are overcome by mothers who themselves are cART-adherent. These findings point to the ongoing obligation to address the unmet needs of the mothers. Eliminating the particular barriers preventing adequate treatment for these vulnerable women and infants need to be prioritised in order to achieve durable suppression of viraemia on cART, let alone HIV cure/remission, in HIV-infecte…

The stock market is not the economy
C.J. Atkins | peoplesworld.org | 2020-05-08
For years, Trump has been telling us that when the stock market soars, the economy booms for us all.

On such occasions, the president has regularly tweeted, …

Peoples Dispatch | peoplesdispatch.org | 2020-05-07

'I guess we did': Simpsons writer admits 2020 pandemic clairvoyance as murder hornets clip goes viral
rt.com | 2020-05-07
The Simpsons is widely known for predicting the future with eerie accuracy, but things are starting to get ridiculous; after apparently predicting the coronavirus, it now appears the show saw the murder hornets coming too. | Like an animated Nostradamus for the noughties, the animated TV show has a number of oddly accurate predictions already on the books over the course of its 30 years on air. | It apparently foresaw Disney buying Fox nearly 20 years ago, the invention of smart watches, the US winning an Olympic medal in curling and, of course, also predicted that Donald Trump would one day become president o…

rt.com | 2020-05-06

While the Oversight Board idea was initially presented to the Facebook community back in 2018, as a way for aggrieved users to appeal content take-downs to an independent panel, bylaws unveiled in January suggested i…
