  1. Again the man came into office to clean up not only the mess from the previous administration but also the few before. Biden and Ms.Harris are dealing with several issues at one time trying to please everyone most important untangle again the biggest mess left behind. In time the sun will hopefully shine through and we could have some type of ease with the grace of god

  2. \ The amazing consistency of Science Recovery Index, (SRI), valid in ~100 nations ///
    SRI-RULE-1, integrating verified, individual SRI-Elements with national SRI data, forms SRI-BASE,e.g.:
    Age vs SRI
    85 + 71.7
    75–84 91.5
    65–74 97
    55–64 99.25
    45–54 99 PLUS
    35–44 99 PLUS
    0–34 99.9
    Rule-2a, Number of cases, number of deaths, number of Death per million, harbor no base in SRI.
    To hide SRI is to hide the ability of a nation and an individual to recover from current viruses attacks.
    Gov-Virus-Czars', (GVC) lockdowns, masks, vaccines, etc. keep these individual SRI approximately invariant
    vs "preconditions" and/or life in crowded, infected-locations, under various National, SRI TRENDS presented
    by Table-2 and 3 in the Appendix.

    ________________________________
    Notes and Ten SRI-Rules
    1. This study is non-inclusive. Yet Turkey and Iran Death-% were rejected from these tables, because
    during the study both automatically reduced their reported national Death-% by 0.01% per day,
    apparently, soon reaching negative values, which mean their dead would come alive.
    2. Rule-2b, National Death-% reported by hospitals are higher because they do not report Death-%
    at homes, AND are lower because they may report w/wo Death-% of intervening preconditions.
    3. Rule-3, National Case Numbers, National Death Numbers and even National Death Number per
    Million all dramatically reported daily by news media, and armies of reporters and experts,
    may not even rise to be wrong in SRI.
    4. Rule-4, Experts who harbor only Medical Dr are not scientists. Best hospitals also require D.Sc or Ph.D.
    5. Rule-5, to ban virus contraband from higher infected nations, provinces, cities to lower ones, one
    must resort to Virus Diffusion Science, (VDS), and take square-root of the difference.
    7. Rule-6, To project Linear-Death-%-Trends or rate of Death-% Acceleration or Deceleration,
    the time intervals posted herein are to be used.
    8. Rule-7, Gov makes SURVEY of Virus-Free-Lands, (VFL), some for Nursing Homes, homeless, refugees.
    9. Rule-8, Max-2-Floors-VFL-Homes, 75-ft-apart, some as pre-fabs w. water/electricity/roads/highways.
    10. Rule-9, Costs, expenses, assets, liabilities, and cash flow for each unit need be designed by Developers.
    11. Rule-10, certified developers are integral part of Gov-efforts and modified national budget.
    12. Integrate combat pilot anti-blackout deep-breathing vapor from hot water, head totally covered. Hold 10 sec.
    13. COUGH-OUT, LAUDLY, to throwout to disposable vessel the CO2/virus-nunning-nose-content, 5-times a day.
    14. Long-Wash hands, face-nose, with 3 types of anti-bact/virus-detergent and dry, repeat w Mouth-Listerin.
    15. Rest and adapt to ABRAHAMIC One-With-Nature, OWN-life-style and DIET, U-tube earlier with data.
    Do not answer this independent study. Thank you indeed
    ANSWER NOT A FOOL according to his folly, lest you be like unto him, King Solomon
    HOLDING ALL COPYRIGHTS, THIS STUDY IS NOT SUPPORTED OR PAID FOR BY ANY
    GVC, STATE, PERSON, AGENCY, ETC.

  3. these governor's r the stupid got dam people's I have ever seen in my life they can say no mask because their children r in private school n they r not getting sick or dying so they can say no mask n if u people's don't have enough.since to protect your own children's n your child get sick n die you have only your self to blame but I will tell u one thing I bet u these politicians r going to protect their kids at all causes

  4. What, in short, a New, SHARED-PLAN-B Virus-Recovery-Language is?
    Death-% in 100-Nations remains Unabating despite efforts by their Gov-Virus-Czars, (GVC).
    Age vs. D%
    0–34 0.004%
    35–44 0.068%
    45–54 0.23%
    55–64 0.75%
    65–74 2.5%
    75–84 8.5%
    85 + 28.3%
    These D% rule billions today, despite GVC efforts, thus raising A-SHARED-PLAN-B.
    Indeed, GVC lockdowns, masks, vaccines, etc. did cancel individual D%-increases
    by counterIng "preconditions" and life in crowded, infected-locations, under
    various National, GVC-D%-TRENDS presented herein as PREFACE to SHARED-PLAN-B.
    What, in short, is Shared PLAN-B? Post developing a new science-based language, we answer.

    More on NEW SCIENCE-PHILOSOPHY LANGUAGE FOR SHARED PLAN-B?

    Clicking name presents worldwide acclaims in 2 best selling paper books. But recent online books by ISSUU and youtube books, and comments, do.

    RESULTS?
    No known GVC has formally accepted SHARED-PLAN-B.
    25 to 86 million Google results save no life, unless shared.

    What, in short, PLAN-B new language is,
    and to what purpose can share with GVC?
    First five component are:
    (1) One-With-Nature, OWN, domestic & abroad, virus-free-lands used by shared PLAN-B,
    (2) VIRUS-DIFFUSION-DYNAMICS-SCIENCE by GVS-D%-TRENDS use by 100 Nations,
    (3) OWN-ABRAHAMIC SIMPLE LIFE AND DIET, educated, implemented.
    (4) Ways to ban Virus-Contrabands from higher-D%-INFECTED NATIONS.
    (5) ONE-YEAR GVC-D%-TRENDS incorporated to effect 100%, final, shared-recovery.
