The head of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration promised that the review of a potential Covid-19 vaccine in the U.S. will be transparent to the public, with any clearance by the agency driven by data alone.

In an interview on Sunday, Commissioner Stephen Hahn responded to questions about the different ways the FDA could clear a vaccine for use: either under an emergency authorization, likely based on more limited data and for use in a narrow group, or a broader approval that could lead to wider use.

“We will go for regulatory approvals in October.”

Those were the words ofPfizer(NYSE:PFE)CEO Albert Bourla in aWashington Postlive interview earlier this month. He was referring to the prospect that the company, along with its partnerBioNTech(NASDAQ:BNTX), could seek approval for COVID-19 vaccine candidate BNT162b2 in the near future.

This statement was consistent with Bourla’s previous comments. In July, for example, he toldTimemagazine that Pfizer expected to know in September whether or not its vaccine works. He added that would pave the way for a quick Food and Drug Administration submission and even approval in October “if we are lucky.”

Is this timeline really attainable? There’s another reason now to believe that Pfizer just might have…

Scientists target coronavirus immunity puzzle

By Rebecca Morell

Source: BBC

A new effort is under way to understand how the immune system responds to coronavirus.

Scientists from 17 UK research centres are attempting to answer questions such as how long immunity lasts and why disease severity varies so much.

The new UK Coronavirus Immunology Consortium (UK-CIC) says learning about immunity will help to fight the virus.

It has received £6.5m from UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) and the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR).

Prof Mala Maini, a viral immunologist from University College London, who is leading one of the UK-CIC teams, said: “Our immune response to a virus is really what dictates how we respond when we get infected, how ill we get when we get an acute infection…

washburn Neighborhood garden is a sanctuARY, but can mayo cLINIC be made to see its true value?

By Roxanne Aubrey

Having spent most of my adult life in Brooklyn, I never would have imagined myself in a garden plot in Wisconsin at 6 a.m. hunting cucumber beetles and squash bugs.

Every morning and every evening, I hunt down the little buggers which decimate my squash plants in the Washburn Neighborhood Garden and take some satisfaction in smushing them. Next to my plot is Jo Ann Neve’s plot. (Jo Ann’s squash plants are beautiful. I gaze at her lush garden in awe, and – I’ll admit it – envy). She, along with Randy and Rita Magno, helped start this garden on Division Street between 9th and 10th Street.

This land was previously owned by Franciscan Skemp Medical Center (since 2015, it has belonged to Mayo Clinic.). Back then, there…

Our way of life is killing us

Wibble

It’s all about externalities. The price we pay for things rarely, if ever, reflects its true cost.

Forests are vital for our survival – but that’s not stopping greedy supermarkets and fast food companies burning them down for profit.

We only have 9 years left to halve global CO2 emissions, but deforestation is rising, temperatures are rising – and industrial meat sales are rising too. Forests are essential to soak up CO2 and provide life-saving oxygen. Every tree that’s cut down to feed industrially reared animals brings us closer to climate breakdown and the droughts, wildfires, flooding and starvation that will follow.

We can’t stand by while food giants like Tesco, Sainsburys, Asda, Burger King, McDonalds and KFC continue to sell industrial meat that is burning down our forests.

We must demand that these food giants stop destroying forests NOW.

Industrial meat is as serious a threat to…

Women protestors in Minsk, Belarus, lionised by western media

The Russian President Vladimir Putin disclosed in a TV interview on August 27 that the Americans, amongst others, had fuelled the unrest in Belarus. He explained that the controversial presence of 33 Russian nationals (with military background) in Minsk in the run-up to the presidential election in Belarus on August 8, which briefly created misunderstanding between Minsk and with Moscow, was itself was a joint operation by Ukrainian and US intelligence agencies.

Fake News vs Junk Food News

The Most Revolutionary Act

Project Censored the Movie: Ending the Reign of Junk Food News

Directed by Chris Oscar and Doug Hecker (2013)

Film Review

This documentary explores the history of Project Censored, as well as its importance in the current political climate. Started in 1976, the project is run by Sonoma State University faculty and students. The atrocious mainstream media coverage of Watergate was the original impetus for the project. Media collusion in failing to cover the break-in to Democratic headquarters allowed Nixon to win a landslide victory despite a scandal that ultimately forced him to resign.

Each year Sonoma State students research censored news stories, and faculty, community advisors, and prominent journalists and commentators vote on the 25 most important stories. The best 25 are published in an annual compendium. In 2000, Project Censored was opened to affiliate university programs across the US.

The film features a number of prominent media critics…

The Ten Most Toxic Ingredients Commonly Found in Popular Storable Food / Emergency Food Products

Underground Newswire

 Mike Adams,
August 19th, 2020

People are buying storable food products in huge quantities right now, but have you actually read the ingredients in some of these foods?

Most storable food manufacturershide their ingredientsto try to prevent the public from seeing what they really contain. That’s no surprise, since most of them are made with genetically modified corn, soy and canola ingredients, along with a toxic stew of other ingredients like artificial colors, hidden sources of MSG and partially hydrogenated oils that are linked to heart disease and cancer.

Here are the top ten most toxic substances to avoid in storable food products:

#1) Textured Vegetable Protein (GMO soy)– Commonly used in meat substitute products like fake beef or fake chicken, TVP is almost always made from genetically modified soy products which are sprayed with pesticides and glyphosate herbicide, linked to cancer. So-called “Roundup Ready…

He is being held in maximum security HMP Belmarsh in London and faces a 175 years sentence if extradited.

A Russian helicopter was called in to assist in pushing away a convoy of Trump forces in Al Malikiyeh, northeast Syria, four of Trump forces were injured.

According to unnamed Pentagon sources, at least four Trump troops were injured in the ‘skirmish,’ the claims were regurgitated by Trump’s White House.

A video captured by a Russian military police officer on a Russian armored vehicle shows a Russian helicopter coming to the scene where the heavily armed oil thieves convoy was stopped by the Russian military police. The helicopter flew very low over the Trump forces blowing sand and dust on the oil thieves which forced them to flee the site:

Climate fueled Hurricanes suspend Frack Gas exports of US Climate Criminals, cause toxic chemical fire

The Free

US liquefied natural gas giant Cheniere Energy has evacuated and temporarily suspended operations at its Sabine Pass LNG project in Louisiana as Hurricane Laura approaches the US Gulf Coast.

The facility, where five enormous ‘production trains’ are operational and a sixth is under construction, is located in Louisiana’s Cameron Parish, in the weaker side of the storm.

Cheniere Shuts Sabine Pass LNG Plant Ahead of Hurricane Laura

Sabine Pass, which was in the path of Laura, was built on the cheap by converting an Import LNG plant to Export. But the giant tanks immediately sprung dangerous leaks, from 14 points around the base of a second LNG storage tank (Energywire, Feb. 12 2018) and was finally ordered by PHMSA to close two of the enormous tanks.

Cherniere claimed there was ”no danger to the public”, ie. that only the 500 workers would get blown to pieces if the liquid cryogenic gas got to the sea at the right…

Gig Economy Paving the Road to Serfdom

The Most Revolutionary Act

Why Courts Across the World Are Ruling That the Gig Economy Is Paving the Road to Serfdom
By Marshall Auerbach

This article was produced by Economy for All, a project of the Independent Media Institute

The tech industry buzzword “gig” has distracted society from important questions about the gig economy that are surprisingly traditional: whether a business has employees or contractors, and how it can avoid payroll taxes and legal liability. Countless Silicon Valley business models have been built under the guise of gigs, Uber and Lyft two of the best known cases, which is ironic considering that for all of their high-tech pretensions, at the core both are taxi and food delivery services. But with state governments like California facing increasing revenue shortfalls and an estimated 57 million gig workers in the United States noting a lack of employer protections and fair wages, the matter has shifted…

Biden Offers Nothing But More War, Austerity and White Supremacy – Without Trump

Biden is an unreconstructed racist and warmonger who has been in the forefront of austerity, and Harris is a party hack and mass Black incarcerator who became a prosecutor with police union endorsement.

Biden’s acceptance speech put forward not one word that hinted at programmatic change on racial matters.”

The corporate Democrats are once again running as the Not-Trump Party, the second consecutive election in which they have succeeded in suppressing every issue except the fitness for office of one very wretched man.  The only way a party wholly-owned by oligarchs can deflect attention from its own culpability in dragooning its constituents into a Race to the Bottom amid never ending war, is to set up a straw man to be knocked down, leaving the machinery…
