Here’s how Italy is making the most of quarantine

Many countries across the world are implementing self isolation measures in order to flatten the curve of coronavirus, including Italy. The country was hit hard by COVID-19, resulting in empty streets and businesses. Although being quarantined to your home is not an ideal situation, Italians are making the most of their circumstances. Videos across social media show people singing with the neighbours on their street, dancing on their balconies and even cycling indoors. Here’s a look at some of the things people are doing to make life a little more cheerful right now.

Russia Sends Cargo Plane of Medical Supplies to US: ‘There is no alternative to working together

The Russian government has reportedly deployed their largest cargo plane filled with medical supplies bound for the United States as a means of helping curb national shortages amidst the COVID-19 outbreaks. According to Reuters, the AN-124 Russian plane carrying face masks, medical gowns, and hospital equipment left Moscow yesterday evening. Although the gesture of assistance has generated mixed political feedback as a result of ongoing strains between Russia and the US these last few years, the Russian Embassy in Washington, D.C. quoted the Russian president’s press secretary Dmitry Peskov saying: “Being aware of the serious epidemiological situation in America, the Russian side offered medical equipment and protective gear as assistance. “Importantly, when offering assistance to the American colleagues, President Putin is guided by the following consideration: when US manufacturers of medical equipment gain momentum they will be able to reciprocate if need be,” he continued. “Now, when the current situation affects each and every one and can be characterized as global, there is no alternative to working together in the spirit of partnership and mutual help.” This is not the first time Russia has sent supplies to the U.S. during times of emergency. They were one of the first countries to offer assistance in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, sending multiple jets with special evacuation gear, medical equipment, a water-cleansing system, a rescue helicopter, and six tons of drinking water. The U.S. has received other international aid shipments during the novel coronavirus pandemic; Taiwan reportedly donated 100,000 masks to America’s shores earlier this month. Furthermore, European Union member nations have been exchanging a number of supplies and services between countries in need over the course of the last month. This is just one of many positive stories and updates that are coming out of the COVID-19 news coverage this week. Source:...

The Top 5 Similarities and Practices Between Big Tobacco and Big Pharma

Tobacco companies and pharmaceutical companies share so many commonalities and industry practices, that it is quite difficult to deny their ideological similarities. Besides the fact that both have used medical doctors to push their products, here are 5 other examples. 1. They both keep harmful findings of their products from the public. Manufacturers from both Big Tobacco (BT) and Big Pharma (BP) deny the presence of any danger in their products and even spend millions of dollars trying to discredit the research that points to problems. BT knew that cigarette smoke contained radioactive alpha particles for more than four decades and developed “deep and intimate” knowledge of these particles’ cancer-causing potential, but they deliberately kept their findings from the public. UCLA researchers elaborate. BP routinely prevents both physicians, public health agencies and the public itself from discovering the true harm of pharmaceuticals. As just one example of many, Merck was successfully sued for millions for withholding critical data about heart attacks in landmark trials involving the now-banned cox-2 inhibitor, Vioxx. One of the most critical elements which defines the toxicity potential of vaccines are its pharmacokinetic properties. BP refuses to consider the study, analysis or evaluation of the pharmacokinetic properties of any vaccine ingredients or excipients. This means that the bodily absorption, distribution, metabolism and excretion of ingredients within the vaccine are not known or even considered in safety assessments. 2. They both create fraudulent tests and arrange clinical trials by paying researchers to produce desired results. The incentive for researchers to fabricate data on behalf of BT and BP has always been enormous. Researchers have earned millions from drug research. And they know all too well that if they don’t produce the desired data, the loss of future work is inevitable. Unfortunately, because of secrecy, most fraud in clinical trials is unlikely to be detected. Ghost writers are commonly commissioned by drug companies to produce ghost studies. Six of the top medical journals published a significant number of articles written by ghostwriters. BT employed the same tactics in the 1950s for scientific and public acceptance of cigarettes. Who Really Writes Scientific Studies? One in seven scientists says that they are aware of colleagues having seriously breached acceptable conduct by inventing results. And around 46 per cent say that they have observed fellow scientists engage in “questionable practices”, such as presenting data selectively or changing the conclusions of a study in response to pressure from a funding source. 3. They both target Hollywood and children. The study published in the health journal Tobacco Control, said cigarette companies aggressively pursued product placement in films in the 1980s and “undertook an...
