  1. First off - I'm NOT a gardener in any way, shape or form! My wife loves looking after the garden and I just do the heavy lifting when required. Saying that, I've lately started looking into Hydroponics as a possible means of food production requiring very little space or soil (ie. no actual 'garden' required) and can be done cheaply with readily available materials from your local DIY outlets. So I've added this thread to encourage the opinions of both expert gardeners and non-gardeners in the hope that we can, together, list some practical Hydroponics solutions to the problem of growing food without having access to a conventional garden. There are loads of youtube videos on this but for the moment, not being an expert myself, I'll hold back and let you lot chirp in with what I'm hoping will be some amazing ideas and solutions. Over to you ...

  3. Prof. Bhakdi’s Wrong Think & Speak Tue 9:06 am +01:00, 16 May 2023 posted by NPP Prof. Sucharit Bhakdi is being tried in Germany. For what? For speaking against the official narrative and referencing a WWII event you must never make comparisons to. There is but one terrible, awful genocidal holocaust and no other event or circumstance in history must ever be compared to it. You do know that, don’t you? The Soviet States of €urope are charging him with wrong speak. The 1984 model for society rocks on, but for how much longer? People in increasing numbers know… The UK Column News highlighted his plight about 19 minutes in…. https://www.ukcolumn.org/video/uk-column-news-15th-may-2023 Additional references: https://thenationofisrael.substack.com/p/dr-sucharit-bhakdi-receives-a-standing
  4. First Vaccine for Birth Control Now in Clinical Trials Published on May 16, 2023 Humanity’s first contraceptive vaccine is already in clinical trials, according to an article published this week in The Atlantic Rather than disrupt the menstrual cycle, as hormonal forms of birth control do, the vaccine uses the immune system to prevent pregnancy by blocking fertilization. Reporter Katherine J. Wu, Ph.D., described the vaccine, as envisioned by its developer Professor Gursaran Pran Talwar, stating that it would be: “A new form of contraception that could block pregnancy without the usual trade-offs — an intervention that’s long-acting but reversible; cheap, discreet, and easy to administer; less invasive than an intrauterine device and more convenient than a daily pill. It would skip messy, sometimes dangerous side effects, such as weight gain, mood swings, and rare but risky blood clots and strokes. It would embody the sort of ‘set it and forget it’ model that’s become a gold standard for health.” Talwar first developed the vaccine and patented a version of it in the early 1990s. That version, meant to be effective for two years before a booster was needed, was reported to be “nearly 100% effective.” Talwar, former director of India’s National Institute of Immunology, told Wu he developed the vaccine because he knew women in India who were struggling to feed large families, but were unhappy with existing forms of contraception. He said he wanted to make something, “free of all problems,” so he created a vaccine that would neutralize the human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) hormone, known as “the pregnancy hormone” because it is necessary for fertilized eggs to implant. But Brian Hooker, Ph.D., P.E., chief scientific officer for Children’s Health Defense, said such a vaccine doesn’t just have problems, “It is an absolutely horrible idea.” Hooker told The Defender: “So much can go wrong by ‘immunizing’ a woman with hCG identical to the hormone she produces, or men with sperm proteins to attack their own sperm at the production site. The big question that comes to mind is ‘reversibility.’ It is very difficult to turn off an immune response complete with memory B-cells after it has been turned on. My fear is that many would be left permanently sterile from this type of vaccine. Also, the problems posed by this technology related to autoimmunity are myriad. Essentially, by coaxing the body to attack human proteins, you also put human tissues, including primarily vital reproductive organs, in the line of fire for many harsh inflammatory processes associated with an immune response. This is one bad idea!” Mary Lou Singleton, midwife and family nurse practitioner, also raised safety concerns. She told The Defender: “This would be the first vaccine designed to provoke an immune response against a normal, healthy bodily process. Like all living organisms that reproduce sexually, the human body is organized around our reproductive potential. We have no idea what the long-term consequences of programming the immune system to attack the part of our body that sustains early pregnancy may be, but we do know that the history of medicine is full of unintended consequences.” The Atlantic article didn’t focus on possible health risks. Instead, it touted Talwar et al.’s 1994 vaccine clinical trial, where only 1 of 119 women in the study became pregnant. The limitations, Wu said, are in the fact that although they didn’t get pregnant, about 20 percent of the women did not produce the threshold amount of antibodies for the trial to be successful. This would be considered sufficiently effective for a regular vaccine, Wu wrote, but for contraception, expectations are higher. Another limitation she noted is that a three-shot series could be “cumbersome.” But, she wrote, “There is some reason to think these issues aren’t insurmountable,” because immunocontraceptives have been used for decades by wildlife scientists to prevent pregnancies “as a more humane alternative to culling.” Immunocontraception has primarily been used on captive animals, but it also has been used for population control of some wild species such as white-tailed deer, wild horses, bison and elephants, according to the Humane Society of the United States. Dr. Julie Levy, a feline infectious disease expert at the University of Florida who has worked on immunocontraceptives in animals described the challenge of creating an effective contraceptive vaccine as “trying to immunize an animal against itself.” Wu also mentioned that the hCG vaccine has “encountered some issues with tolerability,” in that some women develop “painless but prominent nodules,” which she said indicates the adjuvants in the vaccine are “riling up the immune system a tad too much.” That means scientists will have to “tinker with dosing or ingredients,” before the vaccine is ready, she wrote. But, she argued this vaccine is important because it could fill clear gaps in the contraceptive market. “Nearly half of the world’s pregnancies are unplanned,” and access to existing contraception is “inconsistent, inequitable, and still stymied by stigma and misinformation,” she said. Drawing on an interview with Debanjana Choudhuri, director of Programs and Partnerships at India’s Foundation for Reproductive Health Services, Wu added: “A temporary contraception, packaged into a super-safe vaccine, could offer convenience and privacy, with potential appeal for young urbanites, who have already been enthusiastic about injectable contraceptives and might not mind getting boosts. Most important, adding a vaccine to the repertoire gives people ‘another choice.’” ‘Pregnancy is not a disease’ The real challenge to launching a birth control vaccine, Wu wrote, is that some might stigmatize it because of the history of contraception imposed on women, particularly the poor, mentally ill and people of color, without their consent or to their detriment. Sanghamitra Singh, Ph.D., the Policy and Programmes lead at the Population Foundation of India, told Wu that “pregnancy is not a disease.” Wu conceded that vaccination against pregnancy might “unintentionally” imply that pregnancy is a problem to be eradicated and that could stigmatize the shot. Singleton said she also had concerns about potential abuse. She added: “People in power all over the world continue to curtail the reproductive rights of women through forced and coerced long-term contraception and sterilization. As anti-natalism and concerns about overpopulation rise among the ruling classes, will this technology be added to state-mandated vaccination schedules for teenagers, immigrant women, poor women or other groups labeled ‘high-risk’ for undesired pregnancy?” Wu also conceded that the administration of the vaccine could “raise the specter of the eradication of fertility in society’s most vulnerable subsects,” because, according to Lisa Campo-Engelstein, Ph.D., a reproductive bioethicist at the University of Texas Medical Branch, the ease of administering it might mean it would be more likely to be given without fully informed consent. This might be a problem, Wu pointed out, in today’s climate where many people are already “disinclined toward shots,” especially amid “false accusations that other immunizations compromise fertility.” But recent Pfizer data obtained through Freedom of Information Act requests showed a link between the COVID-19 vaccine and miscarriage and birth defects. Pfizer’s animal studies for the vaccine showed major red flags regarding both pregnancy loss and fetal abnormalities. The documents also revealed that the drugmaker elected not to follow up the vast majority of pregnancies in the original human trials, despite high miscarriage rates in the minority they did follow. Singleton said the question of vaccine safety was already difficult to discuss, and combining that with a discussion of contraception could raise even more challenges. She said: “As has become evident over the past few years, mainstream society allows no dialogue or critique on the subject of vaccine safety. Already it is difficult for women’s health activists to broach the topic of the safety and long-term effects of hormonal contraception. Combining the medical sacred cows of birth control and contraception seems like a recipe for a medical intervention no one will be allowed to question.” Wu’s article attributes the fact that Talwar’s vaccine has made little progress since the early ’90s to “bad timing.” He only recently got approval to run trials on his new “vaccine recipe.” But, she reported the research is moving forward and may also be directed toward immunotherapy for certain cancers.

  6. 'They barely know each other, yet Sunak’s adoration is palpable.' Maybe, but they are both members of the same club (WEF).
  7. It's said that Charles played the cello when he was young, though I doubt old sausage fingers can play anything now. Mind you, most of the Royals are good at blowing their own trumpet!
  8. The Walrus and the Carpenter by Lewis Carroll (with help from me!) The time has come,' the Walrus said, To talk of many things: Of shoes — and ships — and sealing-wax — Of cabbages — and kings — And why so many excess deaths — From vaccines, drugs, and things. Andrew Bridgen is our Walrus. Let's support him wherever we can. The next verse is very apt too, if you take the Oysters as being the Government and Sunak the Carpenter ... But wait a bit,' the Oysters cried, Before we have our chat; For some of us are out of breath, And all of us are fat!' No hurry!' said the Carpenter. They thanked him much for that. Original poem here.
  9. Interesting article on Substack. Here's an excerpt ... How real is the Russia/Ukraine war? An unusual perspective. Read on for an argument that the Russia/Ukraine war is fake (although the death and destruction is real) and controlled on both sides from forces above the putative national leaders supposedly fighting it. Russia isn’t fighting the war very hard despite lots of death and destruction There are some curious data points. Let’s go through some of them: Russia has been and continues to provide up to 40% of the fuel used by the Ukrainian army via Bulgaria. Large quantities of Russian oil and gas is still flowing through Ukraine to Europe. Russia has refused to destroy the Dniper bridges or key transportation hubs that Ukraine uses to supply its forces, despite them being among the highest value targets in a war, and the war is well over a year old now. Russia has refused to mobilize its economy for a war footing. Strelkov has offered an in-depth, razor-sharp list of dozens of questions for the government regarding either Russia’s inept or undermined performance during this war and in its lead-up. There have been no answers. Russia has not retaliated for the Ukrainian/Western assassinations against Alexander Dugin’s daughter or a number of other prominent non-governmental Russian patriots, and has deliberately avoided attacking the Ukrainian leadership. Russia has ignored enforcing many of its publicly proclaimed “red lines” that were subsequently breached including the Ukrainian attacks on the Crimea Bridge, attacks within Russia proper, America’s blowing-up of Nordstream 2, or even the drone attack on the Kremlin. Outside of the war itself, there are plenty of curious data points questioning the independence of the Russian leadership vis-a-vis globohomo itself: Putin has a World Economic Forum puppet as the head of the Russian Central Bank, renominating her after she sent $300-400 billion dollars abroad to get seized by the West. Russia continued investing multiple billions in the U.S. every month after the war started, without respite. According to blogger Stanley Sheppard, Russia’s central bank is privately owned by foreign parties who determine whether to expand or shrink its economy: “Exactly the right definition…"Washington consensus". The term was coined not that long ago, back in 1989, and essentially means how finances of the third world countries should be managed. Initially it applied to South America, but as Soviet Union was dissolved, Russia was given the status like that of Brasil or Argentina. The consensus consists of the three core principles - manage population using Darwinian principles, tightly control money supply primarily by the means of high interest rates, do everything possible to prevent internal investments in the manufacturing sector or anything else working to develop own economy and to create a favorable internal investment climate. The extent to which this consensus is applied to countries varies - Russia gets one of the harshest treatments. Now the bigger question is, how and why Russian fiscal authorities during the all out proxy war are still compliant with imposed rules? This drives many people to conclusion that perhaps this is not a real war between Russia and the West, but a make believe conflict at the expense of Ukraine designed to achieve totally different goals vs. those pronounced by Putin last February.” Putin was and remains onboard with implementing globohomo COVID-19 mask and vaccine mandates and vaccine passports. See here for detailed coverage. Putin is hard at work advancing central bank digital currencies. Putin’s initial rise within Russia was due to his support of the West and his willingness to let them pillage Russia. He severely undermined the pro-Russian populists in the Donbass and elsewhere in East Ukraine after the Maiden Revolution, offering little to no support, betraying pro-Russian patriots (see Strelkov’s comments) and the Russian Federal Security Services (FSS) likely assassinated a large number of Donbass leaders. What Putin and the Russian oligarchs fear the most, just like western leaders, is their own populists, far more than external enemies; they don’t want anyone to end their personal fiefdoms and grifts. In a 2017 interview, Klaus Schwab said that Russian President Vladimir Putin had been recognized as a Young Global Leader, and also mentioned Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau: "I have to say, when I mention now names, like Mrs. (Angela) Merkel and even Vladimir Putin, and so on, they all have been Young Global Leaders of the World Economic Forum. But what we are very proud of now is the young generation like Prime Minister (Justin) Trudeau … We penetrate the cabinet. So yesterday I was at a reception for Prime Minister Trudeau and I know that half of his cabinet, or even more than half of his cabinet, are actually Young Global Leaders.” Klaus has mentioned Putin a second time as shown in the documentary Das Forum, which goes into behind the scenes footage of the World Economic Forum in Switzerland. In the clip Klaus states "Mrs. Merkel, Tony Blair, even Putin, they were all Young Global Leaders before.” Putin fires prominent critics of Chabad. I could continue listing more such data points, but that should be sufficient. Lots more good stuff in the full article here.
  10. I've never smoked. My Dad, being a miner, wasn't allowed cigs down the mine, so he never smoked either. He died recently aged 98. My Mam, on the oher hand, used to smoke and she unfortunately died of lung cancer aged 57, after having a lung removed. Not a pleasant death by any means. Luckily no one smokes, or vapes, in our family now, so that's one less thing to worry about. Each to their own though, I suppose.
  11. Too early to vrify this yet, but ... Gamma radiation spikes as explosions rock munitions depot in Ukraine Explosions at Ukraine’s ammunition depot in Khmelnytsky are believed to have been caused by Russian missile strikes TNI Team NEW DELHI | Updated: 15 May, 2023 5:29 pm IST This photo is reportedly of the explosion caused by Russian strike on an ammunition depot in western Ukraine. NEW DELHI: A series of explosions at an ammunition depot in western Ukraine has led to a significant increase in gamma radiation levels, suggesting the release of depleted uranium dust into the air which could pose severe risk to public health. The explosions in Khmelnytsky are believed to have been caused by Russian missile strikes. The resultant fire is being remotely extinguished by robots, according to Russian and Ukrainian experts. Depleted uranium munitions, while typically emitting minimal gamma radiation, are known to pose risks when a large stockpile is destroyed, as is suspected in the Khmelnytsky incident. The effects of gamma radiation can be particularly detrimental to cellular structures and DNA/RNA molecules, with an extended range of damage in fluids such as gas or liquid. Meanwhile, the British Department of Defense (DoD) has confirmed that it provided depleted-uranium tank rounds to the Ukrainian armed forces, raising concerns that similar radio emissions could recur as the Russia-Ukraine war proceeds to more intensified battles. The winds blowing to northwest at the time of explosion could take the radiation to Germany. Reports indicate that the detonated warehouse in Khmelnytsky contained a substantial quantity of depleted uranium shells, causing alarm among locals and prompting residents to evacuate nearby areas. Dosimetric patrols are working in the city, conducting radiation background measurements in uncharacteristic locations. Previous measurements were concentrated around the Khmelnytsky Nuclear Power Plant but have now expanded to cover the regional center, western regions of the area, and Ternopil. The prevailing wind direction, blowing westward at the time of the explosions, has raised concerns about the potential spread of radioactive particles toward Germany. Yuri Kot, a political scientist, has stated that his sources confirm the presence of a large stockpile of depleted uranium shells in the destroyed Khmelnytsky warehouse. Residents have expressed panic and are reportedly gathering their belongings and leaving the affected areas, including Khmelnytsky, Lviv, and Ternopil. Following the explosions, gamma radiation levels in Khmelnytsky have continued to rise steadily. This surge is particularly concerning as depleted uranium typically emits only a low dose of gamma radiation, suggesting the destruction of a significant quantity of munitions and the release of uranium dust into the surrounding environment. Authorities have yet to provide official statements regarding the ongoing work of dosimetric patrols and the extent of the damage caused by the explosions. https://newindian.in/gamma-radiation-spikes-as-explosions-rock-munitions-depot-in-ukraine/ And there's this ...

  14. Teacher Criticised For Making Book On Fauci Required Reading Published on May 15, 2023 Written by Michael Nevradakis, Ph.D. She made ‘The Real Anthony Fauci’ required reading for her students. Here’s what happened next In an interview with The Defender, Lynn Comerford, Ph.D., director of women’s studies at California State University, East Bay, detailed how — and why — she fought back against criticism for requiring her students to read “The Real Anthony Fauci: Bill Gates, Big Pharma, and the Global War on Democracy and Public Health,” by Robert F. Kennedy Jr. When Lynn Comerford, Ph.D., assigned her students to read “The Real Anthony Fauci: Bill Gates, Big Pharma, and the Global War on Democracy and Public Health,” she believed she was introducing them to a book that was “bursting with tested ideas” and had helped ignite “a paradigm shift in public health.” Comerford’s students were receptive to the book, written by Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Children’s Health Defense chairman on leave, and the ideas it contained. But the professor and director of women’s studies at California State University, East Bay, (CSUEB) found herself in academic hot water after an anonymous administrator alleged Comerford was “indoctrinating” her students. In an exclusive interview with The Defender, Comerford explained how she was forced to “vigorously defend” her decision to assign “The Real Anthony Fauci” and another controversial book, “Plague of Corruption: Restoring Faith in the Promise of Science,” co-authored by Judy Mikovits, Ph.D. — and how she ultimately prevailed. There's more here.
  15. ... and the barman says, 'Is this a fucking joke?'
  16. That's just Harry reaching for the 'I'm a PAEDO!' sticker he's about to stick on Andrew's back! Oh, these Royal Jesters love their jolly japes!
  17. Haha! His purple and yellow vest weren't quite the Gryffindor colours, however, with a bit of fiddling around ... I see Cowmilla is sporting the latest in 5g protection too.
  18. I've been on the Abbey site and there are 360° virtual tours, so I had a look around (obviously the Coronation staging is not in these images and other modifications made for the day). This is where the Royals would have been sitting/standing ... Panning around to the left to the location they were gawping at ... And finally, going up the steps to get a better look at that location... I still haven't a clue what caught their attention though! Here's a link to the 360° tour - https://www.westminster-abbey.org/learning/virtual-tours/building-westminster-abbey Use the menu in the top-left corner of the 360 image to go to 'The Crossing' as a starting point then move forwards (as you would in Google Street View).
  19. I'm still intrigued with this. They've definitely seen something strange ... I've found a couple of images of where the Royals were sitting in WEFminster Abbey and have been able to roughly place the direction they were looking but fuck knows what startled them so much that their gobs were agape.
  20. ??? Haven't a clue what you're on about. Where did I ever mention Ukraine?
