Twelve Principles of Public Health


1. Public health is about all health outcomes, not just a single disease like Covid-19. It is important to also consider harms from public health measures. More.

2. Public health is about the long term rather than the short term. Spring Covid lockdowns simply delayed and postponed the pandemic to the fall. More.

3. Public health is about everyone. It should not be used to shift the burden of disease from the affluent to the less affluent, as the lockdowns have done. More.

4. Public health is global. Public health scientists need to consider the global impact of their recommendations. More

5. Risks and harms cannot be completely eliminated, but they can be reduced. Elimination and zero-Covid strategies backfire, making things worse. More.

US Closing Last Two Consulates in Russia


The Trump administration informed Congress of its plans to close the last two US consulates in Russia, leaving the US embassy in Moscow as the only US diplomatic mission in the country.

This was during a time when many businesses turned away black people or treated them much less favorably than they treated white people.

Potential Students Say ‘No Thanks’ to Universities; Professors Lose Jobs.


In June, as universities across America started announcing their planned coronavirus policies for the fall semester, I wrote that “oppressive rules put in place in the name of countering coronavirus at university campuses may tip the scale against spending tens of thousands of dollars or even over a hundred thousand dollars, or going into debt for that amount, for four years or more at college.”

National Football League Experience Indicates Touted Numbers of Coronavirus ‘Cases’ Should Be Taken with a Grain of Salt


Politicians across the world are pointing to the numbers of positive test results for coronavirus that they are terming as coronavirus “cases” to justify imposing extreme restrains on liberty, including ordering business operations and people’s movements curtailed and mandating mask wearing. But, experience with coronavirus testing in the National Football League (NFL) suggests that those case numbers used to justify coronavirus crackdowns are highly inflated.

California Sheriff Slams Gov. Newsom's 'Dictatorial' Lockdowns, Won't Be 'Blackmailed, Bullied Or Used As Muscle' To Enforce


The sheriff of California's fourth-largest county has slammed Gov. Gavin Newsom over the most recent COVID-19 lockdown orders, and says that his department won't be "blackmailed, bullied or used as muscle" against residents during the pandemic, after they were told "there was a potential he would be withholding federal and state funding from counties who did not enforce the orders."
