Study finds plastics in masks present in patients’ lungs. The study (Jenner et al.) from Great Britain discovered microplastic particles as long as 5mm in the lung tissue of 11 out of 13 patients undergoing surgery. Polypropylene (PP) and polyethylene terephthalate (PET) were the most prevalent substances present in the lungs. Microplastics were also detected in human blood for the first time in March, showing the particles can travel around the human body and may become embedded in organs. Researchers are concerned because microplastics cause damage to human cells in the laboratory.
The first-ever study to determine whether mRNA vaccines save lives publishes their data and concludes: they do not. To date, previous Randomized Controlled Trials (RCT) submitted to the FDA have only shown that vaccines may reduce symptomatic COVID. The RCT out of Denmark (Stabell Benn et al.) found that mRNA vaccines did not reduce all-cause mortality, as there was an increase in cardiovascular and other deaths in the vaccinated group.
Google Docs begins rolling out a new feature called “inclusive language” where the language you use within the Google document may be given “inclusiveness warnings”if non-inclusive language is used, and options may be given on how to “correct” your language.One example of what Google is doing now is if a user types “landlord” or “mankind” into their Google Docs they will get the “inclusive warning.” Apparently “property owner/proprietor” and “humankind” are better according to this feature.

Bill S-7 sets extremely low standards to seize and search phones at the border. Bill S-7, which recently passed its first reading in the Senate, would give border agents the authority to digitally examine travellers’ phones and laptops and make copies of their emails, text messages and photos when leaving or returning to Canada. The standard set is that an officer merely needs “reasonable general concern” — which is alarmingly vague — to search a Canadian’s device.
New study (Chemaitelly et al) concludes “natural infection was associated with stronger and more durable protection against infection, regardless of the variant, than mRNA primary-series vaccination.” The study also found that those with prior immunity were significantly more protected from “severe, critical, or fatal COVID-19” compared to those inoculated by Moderna and/or Pfizer COVID vaccine.

Only MPP Rick Nicholls voted against what many are now calling “the anti-protest bill.”

Some US schools are using smart cameras to target students without face masks.
