Germ Games

“Germ Games”, said Bill Gates in 2009, should replace “War Games”.  In 2010, Gates put his money where his mouth is:

*January 29, 2010 [news] “Gates Foundation Pledges $10 Billion to Vaccine Research” http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/01/29/AR2010012903953.html  “DAVOS, SWITZERLAND — The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation will donate $10 billion over the next decade to research vaccines and make them available to the world’s poorest countries, the Microsoft co-founder and his wife said Friday…’We must make this the decade of vaccines,’ Bill Gates said in a statement.”

February 2010 — Bill Gates: “If we do a really great job; on new vaccines, healthcare, reproductive health services –we could lower [population] by 10 or 15 percent…  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6WQtRI7A064&feature=player_embedded

COVID-19

March 16, 2020 –The AP* print news out of Seattle, published in my town paper the next day on March 17, is that Microsoft’s home city is delivering the first COVID vaccine (called mRNA-1273) to be tested on humans in the U.S.  Four volunteers were injected, according to the article, by Kaiser Permanente’s Washington Research Institute—two of whom were described as (#1) “an operations manager at a small tech company” and (#2)”a Microsoft network engineer”.  The other two were not described. The experimental vaccine is targeting the CoV ‘spike’ protein: “The idea: The body will become a mini-factory, producing some harmless spike protein.”  They hope. The new “vaccine candidate, code-named mRNA-1273, was developed by the NIH and Massachusetts-based biotechnology company Moderna Inc…”  And, P.S., the article says, “There’s no chance participants could get infected because the shots do not contain the coronavirus itself.”  The vaccine is attempting to get cells to manufacture only the “harmless spike protein” on the grounds it will prep the immune response. Dunno, folks.  The sophistication of new mRNA vaccines, in experimental use to control cancer, suggest to me that the ‘platform’ is tailored to nanodevices –I’m in for  lessons.

*AP article by Lauran Neergaard and Carla K. Johnson

Moderna Inc. in Cambridge, MA,  has “strategic alliances…[ with various biotech/pharmaceutical companies], Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency [DARPA] and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.https://finance.yahoo.com/quote/MRNA/profile    …for sure!

The notable CoV Boston outbreak which occurred after a hotel seminar and produced about 8 cases, occurred among employees of another Cambridge biotech firm,  Biogen.  Biogen was a Cambridge biotech start-up pioneer,  founded by  Nobel Prize-winning biochemist Philip A. Sharp, whom I discovered as an SV40 researcher, the monkey virus contaminant in the Salk and Sabin vaccines of the 1950s-60s, in the field of recombinant DNA. Biogen was established in 1978 when the recombinant DNA controversy reached a peak in the public eye. Sharp got his Prize later in 1993 for discovering  methods of RNA-splicing.

RNA splicing

RNA,  ribonucleic acid, is the base of our complement  gene system , coded to carry the template in our cells for the production of more RNA, DNA and proteins. In a string of RNA codons, some noncoding sections may exist which can be subject to removal in a process of “cut and paste” editing, either by natural means or by genetic engineering,  producing new variants of messenger RNA (mRNA), the blueprint instructions.

Spliced mRNA from viruses have a prodigious range of functions as tools in molecular construction, modified to improve their utility :  .… “our new method is expected to rapidly expand our knowledge on RNA splicing mechanisms for a wide range of viruses.”   https://www.nature.com/articles/s41598-018-21190-7 This particular article from nature.com, by chance, has an all-Chinese team of scientists.

 

Corona virus has (in other citations of many years ago) popped up as a useful ‘cleaving’ agent for bioengineers.  If believing someday we will all be ‘mini-factories’ in the post-industrial nano-bio paradigm, seeding us with their raw materials is inevitable like rain falling from the sky.  They’re testing us for uptake and the language is frank.

 

…And then… we merge with the Internet of Things. We’re doing it now.

I recommend the brief page on the Sabin Vaccine Institute, posted in 2010, linked above at www.polioforever.wordpress.com  and supported by the Gates Foundation. On the page:

“Founding Chairman of the Sabin Vaccine Institute H. R. Shepherd – expert on aerosol medication; author of “Aerosols : Science and Technology”; founder of Aerosol Techniques Inc (renamed Armstrong Pharmaceuticals, acquired by Medeva PLC)–  had this to say on the receipt of a $100 million gift from the Gates Foundation :

“Vaccines are the most powerful tool available to equalize the health of human beings in every corner of the world” he said. “Enlightened leaders understand the power of vaccines to help bring peace and opportunity to the most troubled places in our world. Vaccines are the microchip that will revolutionize healthcare”  http://www.sabin.org/files/SVR_No1_Vol2.pdf 

*The Gates, we know, is heavily funding geoengineering. It also holds stakes in the Svalbard seedbank.

 

The Bottom Line is that biology models ‘template’ all of our systems. Too many nonadaptive and artificial inputs in any system will crash it eventually, even if the ‘small stuff’ appears tolerated –what’s the saying?—it’s all small stuff. Watch out for that small stuff. It’s the foundation upon which you live.

Germ Games vocabulary:

 

Social distancing : def., (1) standing six feet apart. That’s our “burial” distance; (2) also less than average height so if you fall over you won’t ‘domino’ the queue at the grocery outlet; (3) if you’re sitting, three feet is okay.

 

Stay-at-home orders: def.,(1) self-quarantine, alone together, work online, blah, blah; (2) kinder, gentler martial law that induces lifestyle changes; (3) in 2020 stay-at-home orders still applies to calling or texting ahead for Take-Out. Get there, pick it up, stay in your car and/or leave the area.

 

Take measures: def., (1) wear masks, gloves, and protective garments in public; (2) establish online contacts with essential services. (3) practice the aforementioned above. (4) If you’re a business, establish online contacts.

 

Learn your lessons: def., (1) compare today with what you learned from recent Ebola, H5N1 and H1N1 flu epidemics, especially if you didn’t get sick –go back and review. Talk about HIV or prior SARS is obsolete, stick with Ebola and Flu. (2) watch zombie apocalypse movies at home; (3) if you’re a student, sign up for online school.

 

Spike: def., (1) corona virus has a spike. Use the word as often as possible to help people ‘get it’.

 

Grief: def., (1) pandemics are confusing and frustrating; (a) people need help with orderly thinking. Be nice but give orders and don’t say things like “Bend over and kiss your cash goodbye.” (b) Offer alcohol-based wet-wipes if you have any and encourage counseling online.

Still Going…

Been a long time since a new post went up –so you all know, I expect to be online regularly in the next few months when my service area issues resolve. I’m still checking in for comments every week or so and to get information from these “old” posts. It’s always good to hear from you!
