# CoronaVirus
What’s the difference between COVID booster shot and third dose? The booster is only for people who got the Pfizer vaccine. It’s given six months after your second dose. It’s recommended for people over the age of 65, adults working in long-term care settings, and those 50-64 with underlying conditions. The third dose is for people who got the Moderna or Pfizer vaccine, and because of immune issues may not have worked properly. The additional dose can be given 28 days after the second shot.

# Indigenous
A small but growing group of Indigenous people is protesting industrial expansion in Corpus Christi Bay, the site of both their ancestors and thousands of Native American artifacts. They call themselves Karankawa Kadla. “Kadla” means culturally mixed, and Karankawa is the name of a people who, for several centuries, controlled a more than 300-mile stretch of the Gulf Coast shore from approximately present-day Galveston Bay south to Corpus Christi Bay.

# CoronaVirus
Most of humanity has been so driven by fear of “the deadly pandemic, “the invisible enemy” that it has taken multiple unprecedented steps which have caused incalculable harm to the economy, our health, and our freedoms. Tthe government’s VAERS database shows the shots have now caused more harm and more deaths than all vaccines in the last 20 years combined.
This mass psychosis was in response to a virus which the CDC stats show poses little threat to anyone and for which there have been four proven inexpensive treatments since early last year.
COVID Emergency Use Authorizations (EUAs) seem to be illegal for the following three reasons:
*EUAs cannot be issued if treatments are available — and there are at least 3 inexpensive potentiall treatments that are readily available — with at least one (HCQ) since March 2020.
*EUAs can be issued for vaccines, but the COVID shots do not appear to meet any of the 5 criteria of vaccines and thus cannot be issued by EUA.
*EUAs cannot be issued if known risks outweigh potential benefits which the VAERS data shows is true for the COVID shots.

# Indigenous
This was the worst slaughter of Native Americans in U.S. history. Few remember it.

List of Indian massacres in North America. [Not to be confused with List of massacres in India.] In the history of the European colonization of the Americas, an Indian massacre is any incident between European settlers and indigenous peoples wherein one group killed a significant number of the other group outside the confines of mutual combat in war.

The story of the encounter between European settlers and America’s native population does not make for pleasant reading. Among early accounts, perhaps the most famous is Helen Hunt Jackson’s A Century of Dishonor (1888), a doleful recitation of forced removals, killings, and callous disregard. https://urldefense.com/v3/__https://historynewsnetwork.org/article/7302__;!!On18fmf1aQ!hGYnrwx2ddUflEDJ5LHNf8ZSdK4a1CkT9AT68fJV_XuThDWnBx235QNlyD-oofToYw4l$

Mary Johnson, an Indigenous woman, went missing nearly a year ago. While the FBI recently offered a reward, activists say that’s not enough. It’s been nearly 10 months since Johnson was reported missing. A billboard on Interstate 5 and local media coverage have yielded few credible tips, and tribal police have yet to make an arrest in the case.

Paul Ratje told KTSM, an El Paso television station that he saw the migrants running and dodging around the horses  agents were riding, and the agents were swinging their reins but weren’t targeting the migrants.

Fires are lasting longer into the night, and researchers may have found out why.  In a recent study, they found air over most of the western U.S. has become drier and warmer at night over the past 40 years, influencing the rate at which vegetation and other fuels for fire will dry out and burn.

# Medical Recalls
FDA announced that Pfizer was voluntarily recalling all lots of Chantix 0.5mg and 1mg tablets. The drug recall is due to the presence of N-nitroso-varenicline. In large enough quantities, N-nitroso-varenicline can be a carcinogen. If this recall sounds at all familiar, it’s because Pfizer back in August issued a similar recall back in August. While that recall involved four lots, the latest recall is far more expansive.
