Exeter Anti-social distancing

It appears there are large swathes of people the globe over that have manged to justify to themselves the importance of no longer socially isolating whether it be to fonicating, fighting or fraternizing.

The consequences of this choice of action is simply too early to say but I don’t think medical professionals and key works are geared up yet to start nursing the needlessly dying of a second wave.

If I were to be uncharitable I would stereotype right now the very small minority of people most likely to kill you in Exeter is a very small minority of sun worshipers and festival goers or party people, that seem to think this is an exciting time to break the rules, not really mindful of how many viruses they are spreading or who in their family they might now have inadvertently put at risk or are in the process of putting to death, let alone the countless numbers of people they don’t know that might die.

For those that have been working to keep you alive I am sorry about the potential spread by arseholes and idiots and for those that go onto die because of this behaviour I have no words to describe my sorrow.

Death has not had it’s fill on my patch yet!

The south west of England now has the highest ‘R rate’ in the UK. An ‘R’ number for each region in the UK has been revealed for the first time – and the South West has the highest.

The number, also known as ‘reproduction rate’, represents the coronavirus infection rate. If it goes above 1, new restrictions and tougher social distancing measures could be needed.

The South West is estimated to have the highest infection rate with 0.9. The North East and East Midlands are thought to have the next highest, followed by the North West.

Wolf a keystone species

Why is a wolf a keystone species? Wolves and other top-level (or apex) predators greatly influence their environment. Existing in relatively low numbers, especially when compared to other animals like deer, they disproportionately affect the ecosystems in which they live. … For this reason, wolves are considered a keystone species. 4 May 2020

Yggdrasil

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to navigationJump to search For other uses, see Yggdrasil (disambiguation).

Yggdrasil (from Old Norse Yggdrasill) is an immense mythical tree that plays a central role in Norse cosmology, where it connects the Nine Worlds.

Yggdrasil is attested in the Poetic Edda, compiled in the 13th century from earlier traditional sources, and the Prose Edda, written in the 13th century by Snorri Sturluson. In both sources, Yggdrasil is an immense ash tree that is center to the cosmos and considered very holy. The gods go to Yggdrasil daily to assemble at their things, traditional governing assemblies. The branches of Yggdrasil extend far into the heavens, and the tree is supported by three roots that extend far away into other locations; one to the well Urðarbrunnr in the heavens, one to the spring Hvergelmir, and another to the well Mímisbrunnr. Creatures live within Yggdrasil, including the dragon Níðhöggr, an unnamed eagle, and the stags Dáinn, Dvalinn, Duneyrr and Duraþrór.

Scholars generally consider Hoddmímis holt, Mímameiðr, and Læraðr to be other names for the tree. The tree is an example of sacred trees and groves in Germanic paganism and mythology, and scholars in the field of Germanic philology have long discussed its implications.

President threatens to cut off own nose!

Cutting off the nose to spite the face” is an expression to describe a needlessly self-destructive over-reaction to a problem: “Don’t cut off your nose to spite your face” is a warning against acting out of pique, or against pursuing revenge in a way that would damage oneself more than the object of one’s anger.

So President Trump claims wrongly the following in a fecking tweet!

Donald J. Trump@realDonaldTrump·….Twitter is completely stifling FREE SPEECH, and I, as President, will not allow it to happen!

The morons over reaction are to then, yep you have guessed it; threaten to shut down free speech. In other words. He claims he will do the very thing he is upset about. He claims they are stifling his FREE SPEECH so his reaction is to stifle everyone’s free speech. What a moron. It’s like he says because you will no longer entitle me to blatantly lie on social media then I isn’t going to let the world use social media.

Can you imagine the shit storm that would cause if he somehow tried to do what the moron is threatening? It would be most amusing.

His devil’s would most certainly be in his detail.

Time for Trump Truth

One of the weirdest videos I have posted so far – your welcome!

Twitter tags Trump tweet with fact-checking warning

Image copyright EPA Image caption Donald Trump accused Twitter of interfering in the 2020 presidential election in the US

A post by US President Donald Trump has been given a fact-check label by Twitter for the first time.

President Trump tweeted: “There is NO WAY (ZERO!) that Mail-In Ballots will be anything less than substantially fraudulent.”

Twitter put a warning label under the post and a subsequent tweet under its new policy on misleading information.

Mr Trump responded by tweeting again, saying the social media giant “is completely stifling free speech”.

Twitter’s notification displays a blue exclamation mark underneath the tweets, suggesting readers “get the facts about mail-in ballots”.

What is Twitter saying about Trump’s posts?

Twitter’s link directs users to a page on which Mr Trump’s claims about mail-in ballots are described as “unsubstantiated”. The social media company cites reporting on the issue by CNN, the Washington Post and others.

This is followed by a “what you need to know” section where Twitter corrects what it says are false claims by the US president.

The social media company had pledged to increase the warning labels under false or misleading information on its site – but it has been slow to take steps against the US president.

Twitter updated its policies on warning labels early this month.

What is President Trump’s response?

In his new tweets, Mr Trump accused Twitter of interfering in the US presidential election scheduled for 3 November 2020.

He said that the social media company was “completely stifling free speech, and I, as president, will not allow it to happen”.

Mr Trump’s presidential campaign manager Brad Parscale also criticised Twitter.

“Partnering with biased fake news ‘fact checkers’ is a smoke screen to lend Twitter’s obvious political tactics false credibility. There are many reasons we pulled all our advertising from Twitter months ago, and clear political bias is one of them,” Mr Parscale tweeted.

Only the first test for Twitter

Analysis by BBC’s Technology reporter Zoe Thomas

President Trump has used Twitter as a platform to pick fights with other politicians and celebrities. Now he may be in for a fight with the platform itself.

Following the firm’s decision to label his tweets as misleading, he claimed on Twitter that the company was stifling free speech and that he wouldn’t allow it. But Twitter as a private company gets to set its own rules for what happens on its platform.

The trouble for many was that up until Tuesday the firm didn’t seem to be enforcing its rules when it came to the US president or other global leaders.

This is not the first time President Trump has made claims on Twitter that some say would have gotten less powerful people blocked from the site.

But Mr Trump’s bombastic comments are part of what draws some of his more than 80 million followers to the site in the first place. The company doesn’t want to lose them.

It sees the new labelling system as a way to balance both the desire to allow Twitter users including the president to say what they like, while also giving readers protection against misleading claims. The strategy mostly worked with tweets about Covid-19.

But with the US election in November, Twitter should expect a lot more posts with potentially misleading information. Meaning this is likely only the first test for its new enforcement plans.

Lockdown Lunacy!

I did a post yesterday called Coronovirus-Apocolypse, to be honest as I am not a Christian and I in no way believe that there will ever be an apocalypse and believe it to be to all intense purposes Scholar’s negative propaganda and a stitch up to force people to believe that there messsiah is the only being in exisitence that can save your soul.

To claim that the good guy (Jesus Christ) will only arrive after the bad guy (the anti-Christ) turns up is absolute horse shit. One person was even boastfully claiming in a blog comments section yesterday that all Christians and Jews are the good guys and all Muslims and atheists are in some ways in cahoots with the Devil and all Muslims want all Christians dead.

Nobody thought this was wrong and challenged his delusion how can good hearted, righteous minded none Christians, none atheist and none Muslims none Jews operate in such a world where views are peddled by people that hate any opposite view. So much so that what is said or done is no longer relevant what matters to them is what colour religion your supporting. Religion today is less about spiritual enlightenment and metaphysical nourishment than it is about which team you support and why you are the good guys and the others are bad. Its utter, utter bollocks.
