Questions you may ask about coronavirus

The Covid-19 Appeared in the heart of China virus is now developing in Europe. This epidemic is causing a great deal of concern among the population.

With the growing number of cases and deaths toll, the coronavirus epidemic is causing a great deal of concern.

What are the symptoms?

Covid-19 is mainly characterized by breathing difficulties that can develop into pneumonia, a dry cough, and fever. These are systemic symptoms, which are found in all affected patients. But in some cases, other symptoms may appear, such as muscle fatigue, sore throat, or diarrhea.

What is the case-fatality rate?

According to the latest accurate count carried out by the Chinese authorities in mid-February, out of 44,672 cases of infected people, 1,023 died. That’s a case-fatality rate of 2.3%. But this figure drops to 1.3% for people aged between 10 and 70. It then jumps to 8% for those aged 70-79 and 14.8% for those over 80.

By way of comparison, Covid-19 is much less lethal than the 2002 SRAS, which had a lethality rate of 13 percent, or the Ebola virus (25 percent). On the other hand, it is more virulent than seasonal influenza, whose lethality rate in France varies between 0.1 and 0.3%.

A more contagious virus than the average?

Concerning contagion, i.e., the ability of the virus to infect as many people as possible, doctors estimate that a Covid-19 patient will infect between two and three other people in the absence of precautionary measures, a rate of contagion comparable to the Sras of 2002 (3 people) and slightly higher than seasonal influenza (1.3 people). It should be noted that, as with most viruses, the person carrying it becomes contagious even before the first symptoms appear.

How does the virus spread?

The coronavirus is transmitted mainly through the respiratory tract, i.e., through droplets or sputters of saliva. It is also possible to catch the virus by touching an infected object or surface and then putting your hands on a sensitive area (mouth, nose, eyes, etc.). Note that the virus can survive up to three hours outside an organism, or even longer in a humid environment.

Who are the infected people?

The precise counting of more than 40,000 cases by the Chinese authorities has also made it possible to define the typical profile of the patients better. While the virus affects both women and men, men account for more than 63% of recorded deaths. Above all, the scientists found that younger people were largely spared. Only 2% of confirmed cases in China involved patients under the age of 20.

What are the recommendations to avoid contamination?

Since Covid-19 is spread mainly through saliva, it is advisable to avoid physical contact and not to interact with a sick person within a distance of one meter. Also, wash your hands very regularly and thoroughly with soap or a hydroalcoholic solution to avoid any risk of contamination via an infected surface or object. In case of fever, cough, and breathing difficulties, the WHO advises calling your doctor for possible consultation.

Cannabis oil and CBD – Miracle remedies against liberalism

When you look for information on the Internet about CBD oil, you will notice that the terms cannabis oil and CBD oil are often used interchangeably. It is not justified, because they are two different types of oils with different properties. In this article, we try to clarify these differences for you.

In addition to using different terms, we have noticed that many websites provide incorrect information. We want to inform you, so if you are looking for reliable information, you can forget about other websites. We guarantee the accuracy of our information.

The most crucial difference between cannabis oil and CBD oil, according to the website Ganja Times, is due to the substances present in these oils. CBD oil contains a high percentage of CBD; it is the abbreviation for cannabidiol.

Cannabis oil (also known as THC oil) contains a high percentage of THC, which is short for tetrahydrocannabinol. Both CBD and THC are derived from the cannabis plant. However, two types of cannabis plants can be distinguished: the cannabis plant and the hemp plant. Unfortunately, these two plants are often confused, but in reality, they are two very different plants.

The most significant difference between hemp and cannabis is the concentration of THC. Cannabis plants generally contain relatively high levels of THC, while hemp plants contain practically none.

THC gives a high feeling; CBD does not have this property. THC oil generally contains between 1% and 8% THC, CBD oil sometimes contains negligible traces of THC (less than 0.2%). It is due to the fact that CBD oil is usually extracted from the hemp plant. Hemp contains deficient concentrations of THC. The hemp plant is therefore legal and is also used for all kinds of industrial uses. As CBD oil contains negligible amounts of THC, it is not subject to the Opium Act and can be legally marketed in many countries in the world. It does not apply to THC oil, due to its high percentage of THC.

Active substances in cannabis oil

The cannabis plant has tiny hairs. These hairs are responsible for the secretion of a liquid containing the active substances. Cannabinoids are the most important active substances in this liquid. The most well-known cannabinoids of the cannabis plant are tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD). The THC substance is known to cause a sensation of “high” or “stoned.” The CDB, on the other hand, has no psychoactive effect.

There are currently about 70 cannabinoids known to the cannabis plant. All these substances are very similar to THC, but they all have different properties. There is growing evidence that other cannabinoids can also be very interesting to use in medicine. Cannabidiol, or CBD, is one example. Examples of other cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant include CBG, CBN, THC, CBC, and 8-THC. When an oil contains several cannabinoids, we speak of a surrounding effect. It means that the substances become stronger.

In addition to about 70 cannabinoids, the cannabis plant also contains many other active substances. The so-called “terpenes” are the most important for their medicinal properties. Terpenes not only have their own therapeutic properties, but they also have a positive influence on the effectiveness of the medicinal properties of other active substances of the cannabis plant. There are many other active substances in cannabis oil, but they are present in such small quantities that very little research has been done on them.

Cannabis oil or CBD oil?

The cannabis plant contains various substances that are used for medicinal purposes. These substances are extracted from the plant and dissolved in the oil. This is how therapeutic cannabis oil is produced. Medicinal cannabis oil contains various cannabinoids, including THC and CBD. Since the exact amount of cannabinoids in the oil depends on the type of cannabis the oil is made of, this amount often differs slightly. Not all plants contain the same amount of active ingredients.

As cannabis oil contains significant amounts of THC, this oil is not legal. CBD oil contains minimal THC and a lot of CBD, which is legal. It is why CBD oil is legally available.

Why denying the existence of anti-white racism proves its existence?

As always, while some universalists struggle to explain that all racisms are worth in horror, others struggle to prove that anti-white racism does not exist.

These others are the activists. According to their ideology, past colonization or slavery still has negative effects on the descendants of oppressed peoples. They call “racialized” (as opposed to white). Following this logic, they define racism as a system of domination that is part of history. Also, it inflicts concrete consequences on the racists who suffer it today (discrimination in housing or employment, police controls, etc.). This vision of racism as a system of domination is called “systemic racism” or “state racism.”

According to this definition, whites cannot be subjected to this type of systemic oppression today, because they have not historically been oppressed and colonized. On the contrary, they have historically been oppressors and settlers. Thus, the system of domination established in the days of colonization and slavery cannot be unfavorable to them today.

A racist definition of racism

The intellectual fraud of these activists goes even further, ignoring the very definition of racism, as it is widely accepted, and reinventing it to suit militant purposes.

Thus, racism is no longer defined by militants as the unfounded belief in the existence of human races and their hierarchy, but as a system of oppression resulting from a History, which has negative consequences for the racialized of today.

This redefinition of racism is carried out in such a way as to expressly exclude whites from it, by placing itself in the particular context of the West, and by obscuring historical facts that do not support this vision.

Facts ignored

For example, the fourteen centuries of the Arab-Muslim slave trade and the very high mortality rate during slave castrations are overlooked. (What Tidiane N’Diaye calls the “veiled genocide”). Also obscured the nine centuries of the intra-African slave trade.

These oppressions, although systemic, clearly do not interest activists. According to what logic would the Western slave trade generate a system of domination today, while the intra-African and Arab-Muslim slave trade would not? And what happens in the case of oppression between racialized people?

The colonization in Indochina, whose causes are supposed to be the same for oppressed peoples, but whose consequences in terms of discrimination seem very different, is also hidden. According to which logic do the same causes give different results?

As we can see, the allegedly historical approach of these activists takes a turn for the worse. But we think about all the historical facts that are deliberately ignored because they do not fit their theory.

Historical fine against Chevron canceled by an international private court

The Chevron oil company was ordered by the Ecuadorian courts in 2012 to pay compensation of 9.5 billion dollars for pollution generated by one of its subsidiaries in the Amazon.

A private commercial court has just overturned this court decision taken in favor of the inhabitants and communities affected by the pollution. A commercial court based in the Netherlands, the Permanent Court of Arbitration in The Hague, merely voided this compensation.

The Court of Arbitration considers that the Ecuadorian fine – although confirmed a few weeks earlier by the country’s Constitutional Court – is tainted by corruption, and shows that signing a very partial compensation agreement released Chevron from any liability.

International commercial arbitration, a highly controversial system

These pro
