Repellent Better than DEET

The introduced bacteria will both mask odors produced by bacteria in the skin's microbiome, along with producing repellent odors of their own

DEET may be an effective mosquito repellent, but it can cause irritation, and has to be reapplied every few hours. Scientists are now working on a more innocuous, longer-laster alternative, that involves introducing genetically engineered bacteria to people’s skin.

WND Exclusive – Sorry, but I don’t Believe in the ‘New Strain’ of Coronavirus – Not Yet Anyway

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

With everything we’ve experienced this past year, I feel myself growing more cynical and, frankly, a bit misanthropic.

I recently recorded a podcast where I described my disappointment at how easily the vast majority of people just accepted the ridiculous mandates and governmental edicts and did so, quite willingly, because of safety.

For we know there is no higher purpose of government than to keep us safe, at all cost, despite ourselves.

We just keep complying with all the nonsense, even after everything we’ve witnessed, all the proven misinformation and shifting goalposts. read more

Video Podcast – That’s not the COVID Vaccine – Liking Ron DeSantis

by: Brent Smith

Being former military myself, you know I have great respect for those who serve, in whatever capacity.

Drone pilot, office clerk, door kicker, whatever. You joined to serve.

But there are some things the military shouldn’t be doing and is best left to civilians.

This is one of them – administering the COVID vaccine to civilians, or not, as it were.

I’m becoming a fan of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis. And what he said about getting the COVID vaccine certainly doesn’t hurt his standing among conservatives, or frankly anyone with a head and a heart. read more

New York Restaurants Sue the State in order to Reopen

by: Brent Smith

Well, I’m just going to come right out and say it. How many restaurant and bar owners – how many wait-staff, cooks, bartenders, etc. have been voting for democrats for years, or perhaps just voted democrat in 2016 and 2018 due to your fear of president Orange-man.

I don’t want to say we told you so and have been telling democrat voters this for as long as I can remember. One day your decision to vote for leftists will eventually catch up to you and personally bite you in the butt. The bill always comes due!

And now it has. But perhaps on the State level, this is the wake-up call you all needed – that this is who these people are and have been for a long time. They’ve only seemed more moderate, more reasonable, because they were lacking the “Good Crisis” that they could take full advantage of. And man have they not let it go to waste.

The old saying that you get who you vote for is truer now than ever. It’s time to wake up and do the right thing. Unfortunately it’s too late this time around. Now you must somehow survive until 2022 to throw out Lord Cuomo and the rest of his oligarchy.

Reactor Holds 180 Million degrees for 20 Seconds

KSTAR, the so-called "Korean artificial sun," has set a record for maintaining plasma at temperatures over 100 million °C
KSTAR, the so-called “Korean artificial sun,” has set a record for maintaining plasma at temperatures over 100 million °C

While harnessing the power of the Sun has progressed in leaps and bounds in recent years, harnessing the process that powers the Sun is proving a tough nut to crack. However, progress continues to be made on the various approaches to practical nuclear fusion being pursued, of which tokamak reactors remain a frontrunner. In another promising development for the technology, the Korea Superconducting Tokamak Advanced Research (KSTAR) fusion device has set a world record by maintaining plasma at over 100 million °C (180 million °F) for 20 seconds.
