Wonder if those 'mature' trees would have been planted in recent times as part of course landscaping ..... might explain why their root system wasn't able to handle the wind loading?

Scott Adam's on Hotep Jesus podcast provides a more nuanced perspective on where Adam's is coming from.

Hopefully for his sake. The video clips I saw were pretty emphatic in racism and bullshit white victimhood.

Clips edited to suit the culture war by those who want to spin it that way

My sympathies are with the medical staff and health professionals and even politicians who had to struggle and make decisions based on incomplete information and under terrible circumstances, including, for some, serious risks to their own health at the beginning.
I have no patience for the vilification of people like these who were trying to do the best they could to save thousands of lives.

Tell me this..... given the efforts applied to ridicule and silence those trying to bring Ivermectin into the Covid treatment debate, what sympathies do you have for all the people responsible for making sure it was never considered whilst people continued to die? It had a 40 year extremely low safety profile, so given the on the ground signals from front line ICU physicians using it, how could completely dismissing/ignoring this signal rather than giving it a good go (in the hope it helped) be seen as trying their best to save lives?

Terrible take J70 .... how can you conclude that?

Guidelines recommending using well understood end of life medications (so not trial and error I'd argue) to suppress symptoms (symptoms which might be keep the person alive) rather than focus on treating the cause (the infection) on the face of it doesn't feel right. Please explain what you think is the trial and error component? If keeping people alive was the focus ... surely that protocol would have been seen as high risk at the very least.

Compare that on the other hand to recommendations that were made by frontline doctors (after trial and error) who were reporting great success treating patients using an off label anti viral medication with a safety profile better than aspirin. Let remember how quick the main stream rubbished and ridiculed the idea of deploying this ahead of the EUA sign off to allow this new (safe and effective) vaccine technology. Weird to me that there wasn't at least one country in the west who didn't give it a try when the death counts were as high as they were. Same with no one pushing vitamin D. Both these examples were extremely low risk.

The man is asking questions in regard to the guidelines that were being recommended at that time ... these in particular. Not unreasonable considering they we subsequently updated

6.5 Consider an opioid and benzodiazepine combination (see tables 4 and 5) for
patients with COVID-19 who:
• are at the end of life and
• have moderate to severe breathlessness and               <<<<<<<< see below
• are distressed.                                                          <<<<<<<<

Consider concomitant use of an antiemetic and a regular stimulant laxative. At the
time of publication (April 2020), opioids and benzodiazepines did not have a UK
marketing authorisation for moderate to severe breathlessness (see the General
Medical Council's guidance on prescribing unlicensed medicines for further

To anyone who lost loved ones to covid in hospital, this will not be an easy watch

Pandemic unnecessary deaths, the data

How many of these deaths were covid?
How many of these deaths were iatrogenic?

: induced unintentionally by a physician or surgeon or by medical treatment or diagnostic procedures

Posting this for anyone who's interested and doesn't consider youtuber DR John Campbell as a complete spoofer. Those people shouldn't waste their time watching. I've have linked to the scientific paper (from Italy) he's discussing at the bottom.

Dr John Campbell - Vitamin D, now conclusive

Protective Effect of Vitamin D Supplementation on COVID-19-Related Intensive Care Hospitalization and Mortality: Definitive Evidence from Meta-Analysis and Trial Sequential Analysis

Reduced risk of death 51%
Decreased risk of ICU admission 72%

Take your vitamin D people (along with K2 btw)

Pro covid vaccine academics talking to Jon Stewart about the vaccine hesitant.

A Nuanced Conversation About COVID Vaccines (Yes, Really!) | The Problem with Jon Stewart Podcast

We’re back and we’re coming in hot with a conversation about COVID vaccines! We’re joined by Dr. Gregory A. Poland (Director of Mayo Clinic’s Vaccine Research Group), Dr. Saad Omer (Director of the Yale Institute for Global Health), and Zeynep Tufekci (Professor at Columbia University) who bring something that’s often lacking from these conversations: nuance. We talk through why many non-crazy people are hesitant to get vaccinated, how our public health institutions have failed to communicate effectively with the masses, and why it should be perfectly okay to ask questions about the risks and benefits of any vaccine
