The Czech Republic has scrapped plans for mandatory COVID vaccines. The country’s Prime Minister, Petr Fiala, announced on Wednesday that the country’s new government ditched the previous government’s plans to introduce mandate vaccines for older people and those in certain professions.
“We do not want to deepen the rifts in society,” Fiala announced at a press conference on Wednesday. Plans had been made that over 60’s and healthcare workers would be forced to be jabbed from March 2022. However, the proposed mandates will no longer go ahead, with many across Czech society and internationally expressing relief at the decision.

My phone has been lighting up recently. People in healthcare are livid about the latest mandate from Sara Cody, the public health officer of Santa Clara County where I live that goes into effect just 4 days from now.
Her mandate to them is simple: get boosted or you’re fired. While her mandate only applies for “Higher-Risk Settings” this designation applies to just about every role that comes into contact with patients according to doctors I’ve spoken with.
Here are the documents that are of interest:link
Some people take longer than others. Poor Sara, such a kindly face, seems to epitomize a baleful mix of white weakness and meanness, innocence and stupid righteousness. As of today, it looks like the US disastrous covid response is all over but the lawsuits and crying. In the West generally, failed draconian policies are being upheld most strongly only in Austria and Australia. Desmet’s Mass Formation Psychosis appears to be crumbling, probably because many of us followed his advice to keep talking. But also because the case for covidiocy has never been scientifically strong. As of today, it is all but certain that Omicron was produced in a lab, possibly by the same actors that produced the Wuhan strain. It’s likely they made Omicron in case the pandemic got off the rails, which it has. Another possibility is good guys somewhere made Omicron and released it to end the pandemic and/or to prevent the West from turning into a totalitarian nightmare. In my mind, one of the biggest questions now is who released Omicron? ABN

Members of HART, the Health Advisory & Recovery Team, have joined with other senior academics and health professionals to call for an immediate investigation into the increasing death rate amongst 15-19 year-old males since May of this year.
At the High Court on Thursday 13th January, the ONS (Office for National Statistics) confirmed that there has been a significant rise in the death rate for adolescent males over the last eight months, compared to the same time period of 2015-2019. There have been at least 65 extra deaths in England and Wales, though the figure may be higher due to reporting delays for coroners cases. During the same time frame there were only 2 deaths involving Covid.
The concern is that this time period coincides with the rollout of vaccinations to this age group, who are known to be at an increased risk of myocarditis (heart inflammation), especially after the second dose. Far from rushing to investigate these deaths as they have arisen, ONS has stated it intends to undertake that work ‘when more reliable data are available’.
Researchers are warning that the Earth‘s core may be cooling “more rapidly than expected,” which could speed up the timeline for when the planet becomes uninhabitable for humans.
In a paper published in the journal Earth and Planetary Science Letters, a group of researchers reported that the Earth’s mantle is “much more efficiently cooled, which would ultimately weaken many tectonic activities driven by the mantle convection more rapidly than expected from conventionally believed thermal conduction behavior.”
…The researchers examined bridgmanite, a conductive mineral that can be located between the core and the mantle of Earth, according to NBC News. The team wrote in the paper that the mineral is 1.5 times more conductive than it was thought to be, which suggests the planet may be cooling at a quicker rate than previously believed.link
This, then, must affect the rate at which the oceans especially are heating since the heat has to go somewhere. ABN
In a new white paper, a group of MIT researchers argue that the country’s strategy for reasserting its place as a semiconductor superpower must heavily involve universities, which are uniquely positioned to pioneer new technology and train a highly-skilled workforce. Their report, “Reasserting U.S. Leadership in Microelectronics,” lays out a series of recommendations for how universities can play a leading role in the national effort to reattain global preeminence in semiconductor research and manufacturing.link
WASHINGTON — The first set of Stryker combat vehicles equipped with 50-kilowatt laser weapons will be delivered to a unit of Army soldiers at Fort Sill, Oklahoma, by the end of September, according to the head of the service’s Rapid Capabilities and Critical Technologies Office.
The Army has dubbed its Directed Energy Maneuver-Short Range Air Defense system “Guardian.” After testing its first prototype last spring at White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico, against one-, two-, and three-class unmanned aircraft systems and rockets, artillery and mortars, the service is planning to conduct more tests this month, Lt. Gen. L. Neil Thurgood said at a Jan. 12 event hosted by the Center for Strategic and International Studies.link

An app all attendees of the upcoming Beijing Olympics must use has encryption flaws that could allow personal information to leak, a cyber security watchdog said Tuesday.
The “simple but devastating flaw” in the encryption of the MY2022 app, which is used to monitor Covid and is mandatory for athletes, journalists and other attendees of the games in China’s capital, could allow health information, voice messages and other data to leak, warned Jeffrey Knockel, author of the report for Citizen Lab.link
