If you are generally aware, the PCR test is used to amplify small amount of genetic material
so as to recognize patterns of DNA by “cycling.” (Also,
for RNA virus, the RNA is converted to DNA in order to be detected, it’s just
the way the test works) This is how we have been able to recognize the genomes
in Egyptian mummies and Wooly Mammoths. It works because if you amplify and
cycle enough times to “grow” legitimate DNA fragments, you get something with a
fair amount of specificity. What
is becoming more and more apparent is that the PCR test was not designed as a
diagnostic tool for infection, and really cannot function
as one without having a huge amount of false positives, period.
When it comes to COVID, the presence of viral particles picked up
by the PCR technique does not and has not been quantitatively linked to an
active “symptomatic” infection. It simply cannot be
so, because infection threshold as a result of viral load is different for each
patient. It turns out, if you “cycle” over around 25 times, the false
positivity of COVID infection starts getting very high.
I and others have explained in blogs how people can be exposed
to virus, and mount a simple innate immune response and never know any
you test these people with very low viral loads, who are not sick, you can find
the viral RNA code that is used to “diagnose” if you cycle enough times. The
last I read, Labcorp cycles at least 40 times to detect viral genome fragments. The
PCR test was never intended for diagnosis of infection but as a qualitative
test for presence of parts of a virus genome. I know there has been some
confusion circulating the net about what the inventor Kary Mullis had said
about that. But we walk daily with people who have any number of parts of killer
virus or bacterial genomes which one could pick up with a PCR test if one had
the specific test for it. Would
we claim that that individual was an infected patient? No!
World’s 1st remote brain surgery via 5G network performed in China Published time: 17 Mar, 2019 13:12 · A Chinese surgeon has performed the world’s first remote brain surgery using 5G technology, with the patient 3,000km away from the operating doctor. Dr. Ling Zhipei remotely implanted a neurostimulator into his patient’s brain on Saturday, Chinese state-run media reports . The surgeon manipulated the instruments in the Beijing-based PLAGH hospital from a clinic subsidiary on the southern Hainan island, located 3,000km away. The surgery is said to have lasted three hours and ended successfully. The patient, suffering from Parkinson’s disease, is said to be feeling well after the pioneering operation. The doctor used a computer connected to the next-generation 5G network developed by Chinese tech giant Huawei. The new device enabled a near real-time connection, according to Dr. Ling. “You barely feel that the patient is 3,000 kilometers away,” he said.
Visualizing The Power Of The World's Supercomputers BY TYLER DURDEN FRIDAY, JAN 21, 2022 - 04:15 AM A supercomputer is a machine that is built to handle billions, if not trillions of calculations at once. Each supercomputer is actually made up of many individual computers (known as nodes) that work together in parallel. A common metric for measuring the performance of these machines is flops , or floating point operations per second . In this visualization, Visual Capitalist's Marcus Lu uses November 2021 data from TOP500 to visualize the computing power of the world’s top five supercomputers. For added context, a number of modern consumer devices were included in the comparison. Ranking by Teraflops Because supercomputers can achieve over one quadrillion flops, and consumer devices are much less powerful, we’ve used teraflops as our comparison metric. 1 teraflop = 1,000,000,000,000 (1 trillion) flops. Supercomputer Fugaku was completed in March 202
Beijing Orders Alibaba To Dump Media Assets That Rival China's Propaganda Machine BY TYLER DURDEN MONDAY, MAR 15, 2021 - 07:30 PM Beijing is reviving its crackdown on the country's biggest tech firms, reminding the world that the CCP is still focused on neutralizing any and all threats to its control of the Chinese economy and its people. Even after amending China's official ideology to include entrepreneurs among the protected classes represented by the CCP (in addition to workers, farmers and soldiers), Beijing, with President Xi at its center, has apparently decided that Chinese tech firms won't follow the American model after all. Instead, their growth and competitive capabilities will be curtailed for the sake of stability at home. After Tencent was censured and strict new requirements were officailly imposed on Alibaba-owned Ant Group that will prevent the company from growing , the Wall Street Journal reports that next up on Beijing's to-do lis
