Disease Before Plumbing
After the fall of the Roman Empire, Europeans despised all things Roman, including bathing. There was a widespread belief that getting wet caused illness. This contempt and fear of bathing persisted through the Dark Ages.
Some Europeans defied local customs by bathing, but this was usually done over great protest. When Queen Elizabeth bathed, her servants panicked, fearing she would become ill and die.
This resistance to bathing was brought across the Atlantic to America, influencing habits all the way into the 1800s. In 1835, Philadelphia almost passed an ordinance forbidding Read the rest here!wintertime bathing. Ten years later, Boston did outlaw bathing, except by medical directive. (Though this law was not widely enforced, it does illustrate the American resistance to bathing as late as the mid 1800s.)
How Plumbing Eradicated Disease
Before plumbing was widely used, indoor facilities consisted of a washstand and a washbowl, a pitcher, and a chamber pot or commode. Human waste was thrown into the street or anywhere convenient.
This total lack of sanitation in urban areas filled with rats and other vermin provided the perfect environment to spread disease. The Black Plague alone killed 75 million – 200 million people – including 1/3 of Europe’s population. Though this disease is not entirely eradicated, human infection has become a rare occurrence. The last plague epidemic in America was in the early 1900’s.
Because vaccines aren’t the primary driver of the eradication of disease.
If you want disease in Africa to decline, you don’t need vaccines (@ Gates). You need infrastructure and clean food/water sources

Over the past few weeks, there has been a slew of reporting on the alleged plot to kidnap Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, specifically, the fact that the FBI seems to have played a far more considerable role in it than had previously been reported. BuzzFeed News produced an exposé on the case detailing how the FBI used 12 informants and undercover FBI agents to infiltrate the Wolverine Watchmen militia group, which prosecutors allege planned to kidnap Whitmer in the run-up to the 2020 national elections.
The Primary Informant’s Story Doesn’t Add Up

The crypto bull run has been a free ride, 2021 experienced the greatest bubble so far, how long will this last? This current trend seems difficult to understand, and different from other times, a bunch of people live in disbelief of this new phase.
A lot of manipulations seem to be happening in the markets, the stock price is influenced, the crypto prices look like a rising bubble. The pump and dumps cause investors to think the stock market is being rigged. Technically, the stock market should function according to supply and demand, but there are some disadvantages for retail investors. Some bad hedge funds are manipulating the stock market by creating shares from thin air using naked shorts, attempting to bankrupt good companies.
There is a need for an awakening in the US markets, when the fundamentals adjust to the new reality, we will see a financial meltdown similar or worse to the financial crisis of 2008. Many experts have warned us that this is happening but most people are too addicted to easy gains to notice.
A better approach by individual investors would be to put their money in a safe place. Our team came out with the best research result from crypto and the stock market.
GameStop (GME) is number one on our list because there is a tremendous short squeeze happening now. Investors could benefit from gains similar to the way Tesla squeezed but on a much larger scale.

Hedge funds have a history of trying to use cheat codes to steal money from either companies or retail investors and fatten their wallets. One of the more popular tactics they use is shorting stocks, for some short them so much that it can bankrupt the business. Less often do we see people fighting against these shorts causing a squeeze on the stock, causing the price to skyrocket. These squeezes can be so damaging to the market, that they may even cause the market to crash. It’s also important to review these past squeezes and compare them to the situation that has been going on with GME since January.
The Volkswagen squeeze is one of the more famous squeezes to happen as it caused some hedge funds to take massive losses, as well as the squeeze occurring in the middle of the 2008 global financial crisis. So what happened? Volkswagen was in the process of being acquired by Porsche, which caused its ordinary shares to rise in price while its preference shares to stay the same.
Hedge funds wanted to take this opportunity and short their shares because they thought it was over-valued. What they didn’t realize is that Porsche had taken a majority of the float(existing shares that are available to trade) leaving only 6% in free float, whereas short sales had risen to 12% of the total outstanding stock. This caused a squeeze shooting the price from ~€200 to nearly €1,000. This squeeze ended up costing hedge funds upwards of $30 billion.
DGAZF is another stock that was recently squeezed to the moon. It had a jump from $125 to upwards of $25,000. There are multiple sources that have differing opinions on how this happened. The Street had a good analysis here. Their theory stems from the fact that Credit Suisse deciding to delist DGAZF and letting it drift in the over-the-counter market instead of just closing it out. Furthermore, no new shares are being issued, this essentially turns it into a rare commodity. This has made some collectors want in and since there is a limited supply in the world their willing to pay top dollar for shares.
Short sight had a different analysis on it which you can find here. Their analysis shows that DGAZF had 140 million shares shorted or 45.94% of its float and an 18.59% stock borrow fee. This has had huge consequences for the short sellers causing over $2 billion in losses. What’s even crazier is that this is just what happened with 45.94% shorted, GME supposedly has around 100% shorted.
An issue that pops up if you try and look up how many shares are shorted for GME is that many of the shorts are being hidden in different exchange-traded funds. This post on r/GME titled: “Comparing Rough GME Numbers to VW ’08 Numbers: Why the VW Chart is About to Look More Like a Speedbump” goes into more detail on how the apes of Reddit know GME is going to be squeezed to the moon. A key piece of information that it uses is based on this Reddit post: “INSTITUTIONAL OWNERSHIP AT 207% (some updated as of 1/31/21 after the gamma squeezes)” along with this graph:

My work colleague just emailed Free Britney America to work with them. They’re trying to contact politicians. A politician did go to June’s rally.
I want to send the below letter and added the organizations:
Psych Victims & Equality International, Australian Association to STOP Guardianship Abuse, MindFreedom International, PsychRights, Equality & Humane Coalition, Mental Health Reform, and PSSD Blog
Does anyone else have a group, blog, or organization to add?
Feel free to share it…
LETTER TO SEND AND SIGN:
Britney Spears represents millions of other victims who are voiceless. Coercion, human rights violations, control, pain, and degradation in the mental health system is experienced by millions who are unable to be heard.
Britney Spears needs control over her life, money, assets, and decisions as do millions of people who are fearful of punishment, force, and control for experiencing their emotions, thoughts, hardships, abuse, love, and adverse situations by these systems. The fear she has of being ‘evaluated’ is real.
For the first time in history, a female public figure in entertainment’s human rights is being fought for by activists.
We are organizations of victim’s rights, human rights, equality advocates, and equal rights groups in support of Britney Spears for over 2 years.
As Psych Victims & Equality International, Australian Association to STOP Guardianship Abuse, MindFreedom International, PsychRights, Equality & Humane Coalition, Mental Health Reform, and PSSD Blog, we have represented victims for years.
We spoke to Free Britney Spears Activists to tell them that they are fighting a system with many psych victims, went to some of the rallies outside her hearings, put out 1,000 flyers in California, and spoke to a LA Magazine reporter to set up foundations since we reported it online to the UN Human Rights Office, as well as started a movement of reporting licenses.
The dehumanization of Britney affects victims daily by being coerced, brutalized, and forced down after they are labeled in mental health.
Once people are labeled by mental health, they are no longer seen as an equal person or human which then ‘rationalizes’ the abuse they face.
The violations she experienced of social, physical, sexual, financial, technological, isolation, and other coercive abuses happen to victims daily in the mental health system. In Los Angeles alone, they use 4 point restraints in ambulances, which Britney experienced, which causes stress, pains, fear, feeling trafficked, and coercion.
People in psych facilities do not get technology, internet, outside communication, phones, education, employment, choices, or the rights that others do. They’re forced to and told to become invalids.
Self-death rates are the highest after punishments in psych hospitals for 2 weeks afterwards. The brutality of being called on makes hundreds of thousands of victims shiver in fear, including recently actress Vanessa Marquez who lost her life. Lives would be saved by more humane, open systems.
The criminal system has more checks and balances than the mental health system. Their separate court systems can become an indefinite sentence and life of being ‘lesser.’
Yet, they’ve had no voice or representation.
According to Australian Association to STOP Guardianship & Administration Abuse (AASGAA) on Britney Spears:
Britney has had her rights and equality prematurely taken from her. Every aspect of her personal life, medical life and finances taken over.
She was declared dead under law and her identity has been transferred to her father and his lawyers, who it seems are making decisions in their best interest, and not hers.
She has been denied due process and a fair trial. Lawyers and professionals employed have not given her equal or fair assessment of her capabilities and the medication she has been forced to take severely impairs her thought process and would affect her ability to perform daily functions.
She is a slave.
Her own money is been used against her to keep her enslaved and she is stuck in a vicious circle in which escape is impossible. Appealing this process only makes more money for the conservators as they bill her estate every time she attempts to escape their claws.
Their interest is monetary, and clouded with horrific views on labeling women, LGBT people, and people for their natural reactions to oppression, and not for her independence.
Historically, the Free Britney movement has gone further than any other for American Women.
Other gruesome dehumanizations and torturous actions happened to Actress Francis Farmer, and dehumanizations taken against Vivien Leigh, Marilyn Monroe, and Roselyn Kennedy. Unlike now, they had no one.
The recognition of these violations as being wrong was never before mainstream.
Many victims beg alone to be heard or are trained that the abuse they receive is “rationalized” and told should be effectively punished instead of embraced, given compassion, or more attention given. Britney Spears should have been situationally helped, and economically empowered, instead of coerced.
There are other young, female victims at the same high-profile level as her in Los Angeles recently who were brutally put down into coercion and their independence ruined, like Amanda Bynes – her life ruined as a result – and Lindsay Lohan being threatened with conservatorships.
At first Free Britney activists were mocked and ignored for being LGBTQ. Prejudices against being women, LGBT, bisexual, are correlating experiences and the conservatorships are hiding this discrimination.
We support this case and hope you will speak to our organizations to find victims who support this cause and for the victims who still suffer in darkness.
We want to work together so that we save lives by finally millions being heard. Victims should be first and foremost, and it’s crucial that we work on more humane systems. Britney Spears represents a shift that we need as a society and culture to save lives.

Then these mf’s are so dumb they can’t even pick up their phones so I can schedule a court date. What a joke? 🤡
No one acknowledges cops as the law, we acknowledge them as a state sponsored terrorist organization.
TW: rape, police violence

A shocking number of apps on your phone, ranging from sports to weather, are probably quietly selling your location data to the highest bidder. And according to documents obtained by Motherboard, that bidder is sometimes federal law enforcement.
The Secret Service paid millions of dollars to a company called Babel Street for its “Locate X” product, which tracks mobile devices using location data scraped from a number of apps, according to the documents. And because the agency is buying the data rather than obtaining it through the courts, it can do so without a warrant.
Normally, obtaining that sort of data would require the oversight of a judge. But purchasing it circumvents that requirement, meaning the shady practice can violate the spirit — if not the letter — of the Fourth Amendment.
A similar company, Venntel, sells location data to ICE and the IRS, according to an investigation by Senator Ron Wyden’s office. Again, the nature of the transaction means these agencies are able to track people down by their devices without judiciary approval.
“It is clear that multiple federal agencies have turned to purchasing Americans’ data to buy their way around Americans’ Fourth Amendment Rights,” Wyden told Motherboard.
He added that Babel Street has totally ignored his office’s questions, which include important details like whether the company actually respects people’s attempts to opt out of data collection.
“I’m drafting legislation to close this loophole, and ensure the Fourth Amendment isn’t for sale,” Wyden added.
