In the past this would have been tagged a Slow Saturday Special; however, there is no longer anything special about the Globe on any day.
In this case, it was the horror I found straddling the fold this past Saturday:
"The downside of ditching masks: the return of colds, flu" by Camille Caldera Globe Correspondent, June 14, 2021
[The name looks new to me. I wonder who they pushed out]
Since the state’s mask mandate was lifted at the end of May, face coverings have started to come off — and stay off, but according to infectious diseases doctors, the return of facial freedom might come with some downsides, like a resurgence in cases of the common cold and the flu.
Throughout the pandemic, precautions taken to stop the spread of COVID-19 all but eliminated other common viruses.
So far this flu season, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has reported just one influenza-associated pediatric death nationwide, compared with 199 the previous season, and a study published in September in the CDC’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report revealed a staggering 98 percent decrease in flu activity in the first months of the pandemic.
[There really is no limit to their audacity in the way they spin the renaming of seasonal cold and flu into the scary CVD!
I know the correspondent is a newby, but this is insulting beyond the limit. Lies turned upside down are still lies.
Honestly, there is only one term to describe it, sigh]
“Most of us in infectious disease really attributed that to masks — not just masks, but the combination of masks, people working largely from home, social distancing, all of those measures that have been in place for the last year,” said Dr. Joshua Barocas, an infectious diseases physician at Boston Medical Center, but as vaccination rates increase and such precautions are slowly scrapped, other viruses will start to resurge, starting with colds and other viruses later this summer, and the flu come fall and winter.
On Thursday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued a health advisory about increased cases of respiratory syncytial virus, or RSV, across parts of the southern United States — something they hadn’t seen since April 2020, when cases “decreased rapidly.” RSV is a cold-like respiratory illness that produces symptoms similar to COVID, and can cause severe illness in older adults and young children.
[Ironically, the disease from wearing an unhealthy and unnecessary mask]
Since late March — about the time COVID vaccines began to be widely available — cases of RSV have been on the rise in the South. Though the trend hasn’t yet reached the North, where the public was slower to unmask en masse because of lingering restrictions, experts predict that it will.
“I imagine it’s going to start expanding to all of the other states as well, as the mask mandates are lifted and as people start socializing more and spending more time together,” said Dr. Helen Chu, an infectious disease specialist at the University of Washington.
Chu predicted that the return of viruses like RSV and influenza could be somewhat mitigated by the continuation of public health measures in schools this fall.
Masks are among the most effective of such measures, she said, because much of virus transmission is droplet based, expelled from one person’s mouth or nose and into another’s.
“Having that mask on prevents that type of droplet-based transmission pretty well,” Chu said.
[Oh, she is what is now viewed as a criminal for pushing this fraud, especially when the distance for the little superspreaders who rarely contract or transmit it.
The last people on this planet that should be wearing masks are children under the age of 20 who are still developing. It is depriving them of vital oxygen that will stunt their physical growth and damage their brain, with the side benefit of making them sick with respiratory di$ea$es that can then be diagnosed as.... (drum roll).... CVD.
What an evil, criminal, mass-murdering racket!]
For that reason, Barocas said he will likely continue to wear a face mask in situations that present an elevated risk of cold or flu transmission — like a large holiday gathering or night out at a crowded bar.
“I want to lower my risk of respiratory infection. I don’t really want to miss work,” Barocas said, “and to me, wearing a mask is such low-hanging fruit that I’ll probably do it in a lot of social situations.”
He also noted the protection face masks afford from pollutants in the air and common allergens like pollen.
[How in the world has humanity not only made it to this point, but flourished to the point of needing the be culled and depopulated by these $ick mon$ters, huh?]
Dr. Nahid Bhadelia, the founding director of the Boston University Center for Emerging Infectious Diseases Policy and Research, said she recommends her patients keep their masks on hand.
Chu agreed with that advice, and added that she and other infectious disease doctors are concerned about how children will handle the upcoming flu season.
“All of us in infectious diseases are just holding our breath right now to see what happens when the flu comes back, because it is heading into an environment where children have not seen it,” she said. “For many of them, this will be their first exposure, and I’m just worried about how sick they might get once they get it.”
Barocas anticipates sending his children to school with masks this fall, regardless of whether or not their schools require them.
“Quite honestly, it’s been really nice not having my kids have the colds and sore throats that keep them home from school, and it’s highly likely that my wife and I will encourage our kids to bring their masks to school and wear them for part of the day,” he said. “At the very least, it’s going to reduce their risk a little bit.”
The next question was whether to go up above the fold, or down below.
In either case, their is unmitigated evil to be found.
I looked toward Heaven first:
That's the first time I have seen him in a Bo$ton Globe pew.
I turn to the right and see this:
The New York Times took the to absolve Biden who, sniff-sniff, has the stench of pettofeelya, iynwim.
Then I looked down:
A drink always makes me feel a bit Cheeky:
"Starting Saturday, businesses including stores, bars, restaurants, casinos, and gyms are able to operate at full capacity, and high-contact establishments like nightclubs can open for the first time since the start of the pandemic. Vaccinated people can drop their masks indoors, except in riskier settings such as hospitals and public transportation. The lifting of the rules marks a major step in the state’s recovery from COVID-19. Some establishments quite literally rang in the new era. A DJ at Cheeky Monkey Brewing Co. on Lansdowne Street was set to count down the seconds until midnight. As Friday night became Saturday morning, the brewpub hoped to reach its full capacity of 575 people, employees planned to knock down plexiglass barriers, and customers were to be allowed to party maskless until 2 a.m., but while some industries celebrate a dramatic return to something like normal, people in other sectors warn that some effects of the crisis will take longer to unwind. “Labor Day is still kind of that sweet spot for the companies we’re talking to,” said Liz Berthelette, research director at real estate firm Newmark. State Senator Julian Cyr, a Truro Democrat, said he’s already hearing that Cape Cod businesses including some dance clubs, will require patrons to provide proof of vaccination upon entry to protect other patrons and workers at the venues. Nonetheless, Encore officials believe they can handle what they expect to be a surge in customers — especially those who play table games — over the busy weekend, which they kicked off with a champagne toast on the casino floor as the restrictions expired at midnight. “The requirements that go with being fully compliant with the COVID restrictions are a lot,” said Jenny Holaday, Encore’s executive vice president of operations. “Having those guard rails be removed is really exciting both for our employees and for our guests, so everybody can just relax and enjoy themselves and have a nice time.” Paul Sacco, CEO of the Massachusetts Lodging Association, said the summer is already looking “far better than last year.” “It really is the weekend of the change,” Sacco said. “After a year of agony.” Those venturing out this weekend will likely notice a difference — even amid the expected cool and damp weather....."
They have been telling us it is hotter than ever, but here’s what to know as the street is full of hustle and bustle now that the state has eased COVID-19 restrictions.
They even give you a handy guide for those who have forgotten how to behave in public.
What do you do if the kid doesn't, slap him and blame it on being up too late?
I certainly know the feeling of starting the whole schlep over, but I follow the early-to-bed, early-to-rise axiom so I can share life with the nature that offers me a fabulous bounty each and every day, thank God, and the Globe $cribes can all take the express elevator down where I will be there to greet them -- although probably not for the want! The opening of the pearly Gates will be the final disappointment.
Okay, I'm getting a little full of myself and that a sin so..... let's steel ourself and open the Gates of Hell:
Vivian Yee of the New York Times says the Iranian voters were in a pessimistic mood and the race has been marked, more than anything else, by a lack of interest.
I had a bit more interest in this:
"Voting bill showdown looms as GOP rejects Manchin plan" by Brian Slodysko and Christina A. Cassidy Associated Press, June 18, 2021
WASHINGTON — The Senate is set for a key vote Tuesday on a sweeping rewrite of voting and election law, setting up a dramatic test of Democratic unity on a top priority that Republicans are vowing to block.
Democrats appeared to be coalescing Thursday around changes to the bill that could win the support of moderate West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin, the lone Democratic holdout on the legislation, yet they still faced lockstep Republican opposition that will likely leave Democrats back where they started: lacking the votes to overcome a Republican filibuster.
The bill, known as the For the People Act, has been touted as Democrats’ answer to a state-level GOP push to enact voting restrictions following the 2020 election. It passed the House in March, but has bogged down in the Senate as Democrats have debated among themselves — with Manchin ultimately declaring he couldn’t vote for it because it lacked bipartisan support, yet Manchin’s position has evolved and compromise appeared to be nearing after he proposed a series of changes this week to narrow its scope. His proposal received a boost Thursday when Stacey Abrams, a former Georgia gubernatorial candidate who is a leading Democratic voice on voting rights, said she “absolutely” supported it.
[She did a flip-flop but it is racist and sexist to call it out]
Still, in a narrowly divided Senate where Democrats must count on Vice President Harris to cast tie-breaking votes, any compromise will likely be for naught unless changes are made to Senate filibuster rules, which Manchin and others oppose. For now, it takes 60 votes to overcome a filibuster and advance legislation.
Over a dozen Senate Republicans took turns at the microphone during a Thursday news conference to denounce the bill, which they view as a federal overreach into state and local elections.
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, Republican of Kentucky, predicted all Republicans would remain in lockstep opposition regardless of what changes are made. As written, the Democrats’ bill would bring about the largest overhaul of US voting in a generation, touching nearly every aspect of the electoral process. It would blunt laws erected in the name of election security, like voter ID requirements, while curtailing the influence of big money in politics. It would create a nonpartisan process for redrawing congressional districts, expand mail voting and early voting, restore the rights of felons to cast a ballot, and scores of other provisions.
[The bill to ensconce never-ending national fraud is laughable on it$ face]
Manchin’s counter-offer, which is intended to entice GOP support, would leave significant portions of the sprawling bill intact, while curtailing, rewriting, or eliminating other key parts. What will ultimately come to the floor for a vote Tuesday remains unclear. Also not certain: whether Manchin will vote for it.
A national voter ID requirement favored by Manchin has emerged as one sticking point with some Democrats.
Manchin’s proposal is far softer than the strict photo ID requirements adopted by some states. It would require all states to check ID, but various documents including a utility bill could be used instead of a photo ID, a requirement already adopted by 15 states including Manchin’s West Virginia.
“That is what we’re negotiating,” said Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar, who is playing a lead role in guiding the legislation.
“We might squabble about one or two things,” said Senator Raphael Warnock, of Georgia, “but I am not about to sacrifice the good in the pursuit of the perfect.”
[Those are Pelosi's words coming out of his seat-stealing mouth]
Polls have shown notable bipartisan support for voter ID requirements -- meaning the American public does indeed care about fair elections and what was once the sacred right to vote -- and I have, unfortunately, lost a lot of interest in politics after both parties have thrown in with the CVD fraud.
There are some good leaders out there who are profiles in courage, but they are few and far between.
This here is the antithesis of it:
"President Biden urged unvaccinated Americans to get vaccinated, warning that a highly transmissible variant of the coronavirus could cause more deaths. “Even while we are making incredible progress, it remains a serious and deadly threat,” Biden said Friday during a White House event to celebrate 300 million doses of vaccine administered during the first 150 days of his administration. “The data is clear: If you are unvaccinated, you’re at risk of getting seriously ill, or dying, or spreading it.” Rochelle Walensky, the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, expects the Delta variant first detected in India to be the most prevalent strain in the United States in the coming summer months. COVID-19 cases have plunged in the country in step with vaccinations, prompting many people to resume pre-pandemic activities like indoor dining, sporting events, concerts, and travel in recent weeks, but a large swath of Americans — particularly in the politically conservative South — have declined shots despite warnings from health authorities that the virus remains a threat. “The Delta variant can cause more people to die in areas where people have not been vaccinated,” Biden said Friday. “Where people have gotten the two shots, the Delta variant is highly unlikely to result in anything,” he said, adding that “the existing vaccines are very effective.”
That came from Bloomberg and WaShington Compo$t, who recommended a trip up to Canada:
"Canada said Friday that it would extend restrictions on nonessential travel at the US-Canada land border until July 21, a move poised to further stoke frustration among the lawmakers, business groups, and residents on both sides of the border who have been pressing Ottawa to begin lifting them. The restrictions, which have been in place since March 2020, have had limited impacts on trade and commerce, but they’ve split apart families, disrupted life in tightly knit border communities, and badly hurt the tourism industry in Canada, which is reliant on American visitors during the summer season. Canadian officials have suggested that the reopening of the border will happen in phases. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has said that he wants 75 percent of Canadians to have a first dose of a coronavirus vaccine and at least 20 percent of them to be fully vaccinated before easing the measures. As of June 17, nearly 66 percent of Canadians had received at least one dose, while roughly 16 percent have been fully vaccinated. Canada had been extending the interval between doses to get some protection to more people more quickly amid what were initially limited supplies. “We’re not out of this pandemic yet,” Trudeau said. As vaccination rates in Canada have risen, calls have mounted for the country to begin easing some of the measures, and several US lawmakers from across the political spectrum have pushed President Biden to lift the measures unilaterally."
That criminal tyrant has turned Canada into a hellhole, and my sympathies go out to those up north although I know we are all in the same boat and.....
".... they'll be shutting it all down again in the fall...for the Kill...that's when they're going to blame the mass deaths of the vaccinated on "variants" and the "unvaccinated" and then they're going to round us all up to drag us off to gulags...and here's the kicker....." -- Greencrow
I highly suggest you click on that link and read the rest of the post as well as run the blog roll as I do everyday (not because I'm on it), and I can not help but agree with her because it has been planned for a long time and nothing other than divine intervention will cause them to deviate save a mass awakening amongst the world's populace.
The New York Times says book a trip to Europe instead -- as long as you have had your $hot, of cour$e:
"When Johnson & Johnson’s single-dose coronavirus vaccine was authorized for emergency use in the United States in late February, it was seen as a breakthrough for reaching vulnerable and isolated Americans, a crucial alternative to vaccines that require two shots weeks apart and fussier storage. It was soon popular on college campuses, in door-to-door campaigns, and with harder-to-reach communities that often struggle with access to health care, but with only 11.8 million doses administered in the United States so far — less than 4 percent of the total — the “one and done” vaccine has fallen flat. States have warned that they may not find recipients for millions of doses that will soon expire, partly because the vaccine’s appeal dropped after it was linked to a rare but serious blood-clotting disorder and injections were paused for 10 days in April. The vaccine took another hit last week, when regulators told Johnson & Johnson that it should throw out tens of millions of additional doses produced at a plant in Baltimore because they might be contaminated. Although millions of Americans have yet to be inoculated, the vaccine’s role in the United States is fading fast. Experts lament a missed opportunity to address health disparities with a shot that should have been ideal for reaching vulnerable populations."
That's about as close as they get to mention the tens, if not hundreds, of thousands of deaths and adverse reactions piling up across the planet.
All $afe and highly effective, blah, blah.
That's one reason I'm sick of the $elf-$erving, war-mongering whining:
The AmeriKan pre$$ must be jealou$!
My initial reaction was how after they swept national elections last month?
Sadly, I have lost interest in agenda-advancing UN propaganda from the mouthpiece pre$$.
Forgot all about the children:

"Children and other relatives of Biden aides get administration jobs" by Sean Sullivan and Michael Scherer Washington Post, June 18, 2021
WASHINGTON — Barely a week into office, President Biden made a promise that signaled a sharp break from his predecessor: No member of his family would be involved in government, but that vow did not extend to his senior staff and their relatives. In the first few months of Biden’s presidency, at least five children of his top aides have secured coveted jobs in the new administration. They include two sons and a daughter of the White House counselor, the daughter of a deputy White House chief of staff, and the daughter of the director of presidential personnel.
The pattern continued this week. “While it may not be as bad as appointing your son or daughter to a top government post as Trump did with Jared and Ivanka, it is still bad,” said Walter Shaub, who served as director of the Office of Government Ethics from 2013-17. “‘Not as bad as Trump’ cannot be the new standard.”
Trump’s daughter Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner worked in the White House as unpaid senior advisers, moves that outraged ethics experts, even as a Justice Department opinion found the president has special hiring authorities. Some relatives of top Trump officials and aides also were hired into the administration.
Beyond children, other relatives of top Biden aides also have secured high-level administration jobs or nominations. They include the wife of White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain and the sister of White House press secretary Jen Psaki.
Federal law generally prohibits government officials from hiring close relatives or encouraging their hiring, and there is no evidence that any of Biden’s aides have played a role in securing the jobs for their children or other relatives.
The White House has maintained that everyone hired has been well-qualified for their positions.
“The president has instituted the highest ethical standards of anyone to ever hold this office,” deputy White House press secretary Andrew Bates said, “and he’s proud to have staffed the most diverse administration in American history with well-qualified public servants who reflect his values,” but the hiring of senior aides’ children remains alarming to ethics experts, because it suggests that people with ties to high-ranking public servants might be getting an advantage over similarly qualified people for low-ranking positions, which often serve as a foot in the door to a career in government and politics.....
[Blog editor's head exploded]
"The White House reiterated President Joe Biden’s opposition to indexing the gasoline tax to inflation to help pay for an infrastructure plan, raising new questions about the viability of a bipartisan compromise emerging in the Senate. “After the extraordinarily hard times that ordinary Americans endured in 2020 -- job losses, shrinking incomes, squeezed budgets -- he is simply not going to allow Congress to raise taxes on those who suffered the most,” White House spokesman Andrew Bates said in a statement. A bipartisan group of 21 senators has been working to finish a $579 billion infrastructure proposal to counter a $2.25 trillion plan that Biden initially proposed. A draft outline of the lawmakers’ plan obtained by Bloomberg lists several funding sources that have been opposed by the White House. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi also has shot down the idea, dashing prospects House Democrats would go along....."
Is she the real president right now?

His lack of response led to this:
"A woman was injured when she jumped from a second-story balcony Thursday night to escape a massive blaze that destroyed a Cape-style home on Baboosic Lake, fire officials said. Two firefighters were also injured in the fire that broke out shortly before 7 p.m. at 2 Shore Drive Extension. Crews arrived to find heavy smoke and flames and a second-alarm was immediately struck, drawing crews from several surrounding communities, the department said in a statement. The woman who jumped from the balcony was rescued by a passing boater, who took her to an ambulance waiting on shore, which took her to a hospital, the statement said. Her condition was not known. Two firefighters suffered minor injuries and had been released from the hospital by Friday morning, Fire Chief Matthew Duke said. By 11 p.m., the fire was mostly out, but the home was on the verge of collapsing. A backhoe from the town’s public works department arrived to tear down the house, allowing firefighters to continue fighting the fire in hard-to -each areas, Duke said. The cause of the fire remains under investigation."
They then took a ride around the neighborhood:
"A 36-year-old Palmer woman died and a juvenile was seriously injured in a rollover crash on the Massachusetts Turnpike Friday afternoon, according to State Police. The woman was driving a 2005 Subaru Forester eastbound when she lost control, causing the vehicle to roll over and cross into the westbound lane at 1:45 p.m., State Police said in a statement. No other vehicles were involved in the crash. Witnesses and emergency personnel attempted to perform life-saving measures on the woman, but she died of her injuries, State Police said. The juvenile was taken to Baystate Hospital with serious injuries. The cause of the crash is under investigation, State Police said."
"A 1-year-old child was seriously injured in a two-car crash on Route 24 south around 9:40 p.m. Thursday, State Police said. The child was taken to Boston Children’s Hospital. The condition was not known Friday. The child was riding in a Toyota Sienna van driven by a 28-year-old woman from Fall River, State Police said in a statement. The child was riding along with a 3-year-old and a 40-year-old man from Fall River when the car changed lanes due to road construction, the statement said. At the same time, a Volvo S60 sedan driven by a 17-year-old from Taunton was traveling on the highway and it rear-ended the van, “causing both vehicles to spin out of control,” the statement said. The 1-year-old suffered the most serious injuries. The driver and other passengers in the van were taken to Good Samaritan Hospital in Brockton for treatment of minor injuries. The Volvo driver was taken to Morton Hospital for treatment of minor injuries, State Police said. The crash remains under investigation."
"Police are looking for a man believed to be in his 30s or 40s who they say asked a 13-year-old girl to get into his car as she walked back from a neighbor’s house Tuesday. He is described as a white male, with dark eyes and a wide jaw “and looking as if he works out,” police said. The teen was headed home around 6:05 p.m. when the man allegedly stopped and asked her if she wanted to get in his vehicle, a small black sedan, according to police. The girl immediately returned to her friend’s home and the man left the area. On Friday, police were able to obtain an image of the car they believe the man was driving, Police Chief Sean Gibbons said. Anyone with information is asked to contact Wayland Police....."
"Residents can rest easy knowing the culprit behind a series of vehicle break-ins has been identified on video as a bear. The black bear has been spotted in the town over the past few weeks, just as residents began reporting to police that their vehicles had been broken into, Police Chief Ken Miller said. Police believe the bear is looking for food, and they are urging residents to remove food items from their vehicles and not to leave trash outside. In several instances, the bear has climbed into a vehicle’s trunk or the bed of a truck to try and get a bite to eat."
He saw to Japan before they found him:
In this image made from a video, a brown bear runs on a field in Sapporo, northern Japan Friday, June 18, 2021.

"Wilmington schools suspend staffer after DCF supports abuse allegation; middle school staffer now under investigation" by John R. Ellement Globe Staff, June 17, 2021
The state’s child protection agency is investigating an allegation that a middle school staffer in the Wilmington public schools abused at least one student, which comes after another staffer was placed on leave for allegedly abusing a special needs student in an early childhood center.
In a letter to parents Wednesday, Wilmington Schools Superintendent Glenn Brand wrote that the Department of Children and Families had sustained allegations that a staffer at the Wildwood Early Childhood Center had abused or neglected at least one child. The center offers pre-kindergarten and kindergarten classes in 11 classrooms, according to state records and Wilmington Schools.
“We placed the staff in question on administrative leave as soon as we were made aware of those claims,” Brand wrote, adding that an outside investigator has been hired to examine the circumstances at Wildwood. “We recently learned from DCF that some of the claims have been supported.”
Now, the issue has expanded to a separate school and facility — the town’s middle school, which serves grades six through eight.
“Last week, we became aware of a separate series of allegations of misconduct by a staff member at Wilmington Middle School,” Brand wrote. “That staff member has also been placed on administrative leave pending a DCF investigation.”
Brand did not identify the jobs held by the persons under DCF investigation. “Out of respect for all those involved and based on legal requirements, we are not able to discuss the specifics of these cases,” he wrote.....

The speed of job recovery in Massachusetts, which lifted nearly all coronavirus restrictions on May 29, trails national figures. The state’s unemployment rate dipped to 6.1 percent last month compared to a revised rate of 6.4 percent in April. Although the jobless rate is trending downward, that number is higher than the national average, which fell to 5.8 percent last month, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Employers have been scrambling to hire workers in recent weeks to keep up with the reopening and accommodate pent-up demand from consumers.
