self-isolate

Imaging a DALEK going round spurting out ‘self-isolate’ self-isolate all day long.

Indeed Hygiene is the big preventer on infections and of course-self-isolation helps spread the virus but doesn’t make others more resiliant to it.

Just as we are told to wash our hands for 2 minutes with soap, swimmers actualy spend prolonged time in the magic liquid called water, enhanced with the cleaning agent chlorine. Perhaps more people should take a regular sheep-dip in water to cleanse the whole body.

I won’t blog much about Covid-19, as there is a hunt on bloggers who may spread false information. A 10k fine for failure to self-isolate is a lot of money, perhaps mirrored in the fact that the UK government has borrowed record sums to make up for economic and tax losses. The fines reflect that. Why do taxes always depend on wrong-doing?

You get taxed for eating lots of sugar, smoking, drinking, having cars, fined for breaking rules. Government would be stuffed if nobody had unhealthy livestyles nor broke the rules.

Far away dreams

Why do people explore space, want to go to Mars or explore for Exo Planets? Most likely because they look for happiness.

People’s relationships rely largely on chemistry whether that is triggered by money or some other currency of exchange value.

Just watched the Bruderhof and it reminded me a lot about my child-hood. I could however never now, express myself over a love for Jesus. I would use other values instead. Values like honesty, humility and responsibility. HHR, I might have found a new letter combination that means something to me at least.

It’s extremely rewarding to emphasise important values and it is humiliating to learn that a lot of people do not understand the basic values that life consists of.

I suppose in places like the Bruderhof you learn to concentrate on those basic values alone before anything else and it’s harder to get confused and divert into destructive or unhealthy habits.

I suppose people who enjoy the Bruderhof will be strong characters who have a huge will to live and contribute to their community.

In a ‘normal’ society people who are depressed are most probably the ones who are most frivolous in their behaviour. People who are depressed also tend not to clean so often.

I have just come across basic values in my own community. Learned that people have big plans, starting large, expensive schemes to teach people about environmental values but they are unable to remove the weeds in front of their own porch to stop weeds from destroying the concrete tarmac.

This is how our Residents Association keeps their porch in front of the community centre. Yet they have great plans to start a Climate Task Force. Perhaps what they need is a weed removal task force first. Even if the social landlord doesn’t do their job, would it not make sense to get a task force of volunteers to deal with that?

It’s pretty easy to explain that away with environmental concerns, to say that a living weed has a big environmental impact and that the damage to remove it would be immense.

Still those weeds destroy the civilised building structures, overgrow a footpath and where would that weed-growing stop? Would we end up being re-forested for the sake of the environment and have our houses swallowed up by trees or can we manage a basic form of discipline and agree to keep our cultured living spaces clean and free from plants whose roots can destroy our driveways?

Those are the people who have been given a substantive amount from the BIG LOTTERY to teach us about the environment. They probably going to teach us to leave weeds be; if we let them.

 

They’re attacking our food supplies again

With the argument that food supplies make up 20% of global emmissions, the Big Lottery has now funded – on a big scale – a project here in Tower Hamlets that wants to tell people: “Don’t rely on food banks, grow your own food”. See my previous post.

This, in effect, makes the situation of poor working class people worst. They are trying to teach you, eat what you can grow locally.

Many residents of Tower Hamlets and indeed throughout Britain rely on large-scale food imports. From rice to spice, it all has to come from far away places.

Unfortunately this new trend is masked up as working on our well-being. Whilst our residents face eviction notices, they are told to grow their own food to save the planet.

Whilst in our area people oppose the building of new housing, they support the growing of own food. Put the two together, you achieve less housing more farming in a place that is called the City of London. Overall the aim of those radical groups is to reduce the population number, reduce the size of cities and ruralisation of our country.

Even if you are a regular coffee house customer and eat out, your restaurant relies on food imports to supply your tasty morsels every day.

The project, which just received major Big Lottery funding has built-in “the Parkview and Cranbrook climate task force”

Previously Extinction Rebellion declared the Glasshouse Community Centre on Parkview Estate as one of their favourite haunts and they use it to prepare props for those large-scale demonstrations that put a stop to life in London as we know it, by blocking traffic and trying to stop commuters boarding trains.

Unfortunately major community organisations in Tower Hamlets have agreed to take part in this project. Of course they do try it first with the poorest as they are the most vulnerable and easiest to draw in.

All those attempts to shut our supermarkets down and replace them with plastic free, self-selection shops failed because the products are not as cheap as the conventional ones.

Whichever way you look at it, the working people, who earn little money need to be able to buy food in the time they have available to do it.

What these projects are doing is telling the poor working class: “Don’t rely on the ‘bad supermarket food’, dont’ rely on food banks, Grow your own food.

If you see how little space there is in an inner-city housing estate or garden to grow food, you would know that any crop would not achieve more than one dinner per harvest. If you have a plot you may achieve a aquivalent of 10 dinners with one large tub of earth.

Just imagine the working person has to do a full shift or work overtime to earn enough and then they cannot even pop into a shop to buy food but they have to make do with what they grow at home.

 

Media perception

How well a person is portrait in common media perception is now so important to people that many wouldn’t even dare to complain about a ‘positive media personality’.

Yesterday’s ‘Law and Order UK’ dealt with a sex pest gynaecologist who abused, tortured patients. It was extremely difficult to get a conviction for rape because everybody was absolutely mesmerised by ridiculous lies and excuses.

He was this pillar in the community figure, raised money for charity and even rape support groups. Yet, he personally saw his patients as toys and even his wife committed suicide because he was cruel to her too.

A first attempt for a rape conviction failed because no other victims came forward but the officer who happened to come across him as patient. The jury found against the women, even though she had filmed the whole thing.

The only way to get others to come forward was to arrest the doctor in front of a big media contingent, who reported about the arrest in the media so the holy perception was broken.

Why is it so difficult to see rape as rape and convict a guy? Especially in a doctor’s setting, any doctor having sex with a patient in the consulting room should be struck off without even a trial.

 

the Eureka moment

Just having this Bingo feeling. The pain from my Arthrities in my knee woke me up early. One of two medical conditions I do not get any medical treatment for and which keep me unable to do much but blog. Firstly I got the arthrities in the knee and secondly I can’t wear my denture and I am toothless, which makes me less than photogenic.

So I blog.

There was a moment when my mind started associating things, namely when I learned that the father of Shamima Begum is in Bangladesh. Apparently one of the suspected rapists of my daughter also originates from Bangladesh, so I believe. I have some nice pics of two of the men who were accused by her of being rapists but they had expensive cars, sports coupees and they weren’t the run of the mill local lads. They drove BMW’s.

Could that have been one of the reasons why the CPS didn’t want to prosecute them?

But so far, we never associated anything to do with ISIS with Bangladesh at all.

Well of course the testimony of a learning disabled person is always difficult to believe but there we are. But then, when my daughter was in school they never even bothered to even give her an assessment or statement of special educational needs.

It just seems that the parents are the last people to find out about what is actually going on.

The second thing that alarmed me was when I watched the interview with the Chinese Ambassador on the Andrew Marr show yesterday. He was shown a pic or film of ethnic people being driven to a camp and women of being forcibly sterilised.

Of course here in Britain we do not forcibly sterilise women, we just make it very hard for them to get benefits and somewhere to live with their children.

I believe the Chinese Ambassador when he says, they treat all people equal, equally bad he should have said. They do have the one-child policy for anyone in cities.

Talking of equality. When I came to Britain women were equally pushed into child-bearing with generous benefits and easy housing. Now they are relentlessly prevented from having lots of kids by making benefits very difficult and housing even harder to get.

One could argue that sterilisation is one option to stop women from having lots of kids so they do not need housing or benefits but can work instead. So whilst the Chinese may carry out these procedures, the British attitude is not to intervene physically and so direct but indirect by policy instead.

But, to say the truth, my learning disabled daughter has now been sterilised here in Britain, so I have heard, as she has problems coping with further pregnancies and making sensible choices.

So there are those policies and diplomacies that seem to override directly naming and shaming what is actually going on.

plastic in tea bags

Tried to find further information on the effect the billions of particles of plastic have on the body. Apparently many teabags only hold together because of plastic woven into them.

I wanted to get further information what actually happens in the body with the plastic and there is nothing out there.

Would the body push the plastic micro particles to one part of the body and form some kind of Arthritis for example or would the plastic be swimming around in the blood stream, settle in some cells or even the brain?

I tried to cut off the tea bag and just use the contents, but that tea in tea bags is just too powdery to be used in a tea strainer.

The only afforable solution is to use loose tea with a tea strainer. A little bit more work but well worth it I suppose.

 

watch out for the family trap

What I find quite astonishing is that many people now use the term family to try and extort assistance from somebody they know there is a physical relation to.

But as I pointed out in many posts previously, unless the relationships that children of a family formed were built with the express consent of the parents or grand parents, those younger additions to relationships cannot call themselves family member as there has never been any consent towards it.

When men pick out girls from their school education or engage with them to have yet another child without the knowledge or consent of the grandparents, they can then hardly expect those grandparents to provide help and assistance by stealth. Grandmothers just do not have to support the grandchildren their daughters had without their knowledge with some man the grandmother never met previously.

The term family gets used to exploit older women’s maternal instincts to provide help and support free of charge.

So enough of that. Many women fight hard to get equal treatment in the work place and have a say in public life, so girls stand up for yourselves and be very choosy.

Always be nice

Just want to say something that sounds positive. People can not agree with something or have different ideas but to express that opion, it has do be done in a nice and rational manner.

Be constructive. Think does your activity impede on somebody else’s livelyhood or freedom?

 

Coughing anyone?

I haven’t coughed a lot this winter, certainly no persistent new cough. In fact my breathing went exceptionally well this year.

Yet, yesterday, when I entered a local supermarket I felt something scratching my throat badly. Shock, horror, fear, could that be a Corona virus cough?

Also other people react badly if they see you coughing in the isles.

I put on my spare face mask and immediately the coughing urge went away. Also after I had left the supermarket and took the face mask off, I no longer needed to cough.

I suppose there was something in the air, that initiated coughing for me.

Saying this, it is always good to go through a process of elimination and go through obvious check points first before thinking that one has caught Corona virus. A face mask is always good in crowded places because tiny particles might be present in the air that we breathe.

Masks are not just good for keeping our droplets within but also to breathe clean and filtered air.

The u-turn

Yesterday the Prime Minister announced that all who can should go back to work but walk, cycle or use cars and avoid public transport.

All that caution about carbon emissions has been thrown to the wind for the sake of personal breathing space whilst in a car.

It’s all about direct transmissions; the government is not concerned about long-term health effects.

I remember when my kids went to Primary. In Primary, kids often get sick, the younger the more sick they got because they caught all type of germs from each other. Yet teachers preached day in and day out that the 100% attendance is very important for children’s education and ability to achieve good grades.

Now Jeremy Corbyn warns that it is not safe to get back to work and especially schooling because transmissions are rife.

The only difference is that the childhood illnesses could not be caught my teachers but Corona can.

Is there anybody making any sense?

First we were told that the government will use existing health apps to monitor the spread and potential infection risk whilst yesterday I got an email from my Covid-19 app that they have to cease operation unless they get voluntary donations to continue.

The new rule from Wednesday people who usually live together can sunbathe, play games and go on outings, using cars together. Who is going to check whether the people usually live together if enforcers are faced with lots of groups of people. A lot of people flat-share these days.

It is obviously discriminating to only allow those who have cars to travel for leisure whilst public transport is off limits but to those working.

It’s almost back to normal with the excepton of children not being allowed to school. This knock-on effect stops many people from going to work. Also I’ve heard little about sports clubs and events and training in clubs and gyms and pools.
