Soooo much dubious. The mangled English, the sketchy conclusions, quoting people/organisations with names that look sound like James Bond baddies. No one thing is bad, but in aggregate this news piece would make you looking at more credible sources. You decide.

However, there is a way to sniff it for bullshit. The article says further down there are 1.6B cellphones in China. 21 million phones sounds like a lot but is actually only 1.3% of total phones. In NZ the cell providers state publically that they close or replace about 10% of their mobile phone accounts at year....which is about 1% a month roughly.

Further, I highly doubt the number are accurate to 1.3 percent....imagine trying to keep track of 1 600 000 000 phone accounts!

Dubious.

Have posted this 4 times now I think, on this thread. Statement in the Lancet, a medical journal, and one of the very finest, by experts across many countries and fields. The lancet is a medical journal, not a newspaper. It has one of the most trusted medical findings reputations on the planet. Anything published is peer reviewed. All citations are included with the statement.

Well done. This was very good. Have listened once and watched once. Looove Chomsky.

He is clear in flagging the risks of governments using this as an excuse to hinder rights. This is already happening. He is also not in any way playing down the seriousness of the virus.

An important distinction to make.

Might want to have a quick look at the references on this ‘source’

“Endorsed by Deepak Chopra”. Low praise indeed.

Good link. Helps in understanding the challenges in an overwhelmed health system, as well as the reality of trying to develop a testing program in the middle of a pandemic.

RT are great.

Useful to understand who this guy is;

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yanis_Varoufakis


( I’ll leave comments about believing anything the Greeks have to say about managing a crisis or an economy for those of lower wit)

Hemi, would you consider being my lawyer if ever my employer was giving me too much shit. To have a guy like you in the room with me would be a massive boost. I could imagine you saying Billy doesn't have to answer that question! I like the way you have gone through all the points & produced a counter argument.


I agree. Thank you for your responses both Hemi & Billy
