Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra : Everything Leaked So Far!

Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra : Everything Leaked So Far!

Take a look at the key details and specifications that has leaked ahead of the official launch of the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra!

 

Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra : Everything Leaked So Far!

Ahead of the official launch of the Galaxy S23 Ultra, key details and specifications of Samsung’s upcoming flagship smartphone have leaked!

Boosted Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2

The Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra will use a specially-boosted variant of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 mobile SoC, which features a quad-cluster architecture:

  • 1 x Arm Cortex-X3 core (3.36 GHz, instead of 3.2 GHz)
  • 2 x Arm Cortex-A715 cores (2.8 GHz)
  • 2 x Arm Cortex-A710 cores (2.8 GHz)
  • 3 x Arm Cortex-A510 cores (2.0 GHz)

Here is a quick comparison between the boosted Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, and the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 mobile SoC used in the Galaxy S22 Ultra:

Specifications Galaxy S23 Ultra Galaxy S22 Ultra
Mobile SoC Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 Snapdragon 8 Gen 1
CPU Clusters 4 3
CPU Cores 1 x Cortex-X3 (3.36 GHz)
2 x Cortex-A715 (2.8 GHz)
2 x Cortex-A710 (2.8 GHz)
3 x Cortex-A510 (2.0 GHz)
1 x Cortex-X2 (3.0 GHz)
3 x Cortex-A710 (2.5 GHz)
4 x Cortex-A510 (1.8 GHz)
GPU Qualcomm Adreno 740 Qualcomm Adreno 730

200 MP Main Camera

Arguably the biggest upgrade in the Galaxy S22 Ultra is its new main camera, which is built around the 200 MP Samsung ISOCELL HP2 (S5KHP2) sensor, and features a slightly wider f/1.7 aperture.

This is a large 1/1.3-inch sensor with 200 million pixels, each of which is 0.6 μm in size. The Galaxy S23 Ultra camera will be able to combine up to 16 pixels to form a single large pixel – a pixel binning technique called Tetra2pixel.

The number of pixels binned will vary according to the photography conditions. In low-light conditions, up to 16 pixels can be combined to create a large 2.4 μm pixel, for a 12.5 MP photo.

On top of that, the new Samsung ISOCELL HP2 sensor also offers better auto-focus performance in low-light conditions through Super QPD autofocus. By using all 200 million pixels, which are physically grouped as four pixels under a single microns, the sensor can detect patterns in both vertical and horizontal directions for faster low-light focusing.

Similar Telephoto + Wide-Angle Cameras

The Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra will reuse the same 3X and 10X zoom cameras from the Galaxy S22 Ultra, right down to their Sony IMX754 sensors.

The ultra-wide angle camera gets a newer sensor – the Sony IMX564, which appears to be an incremental upgrade of the S22 Ultra’s IMX563.

Colour Options

The Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra smartphones will come in four colour options:

  • Botanic Green
  • Cotton Flower
  • Misty Lilac
  • Phantom Black

Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra : Prices + Offers Leaked So Far!

Sadly, the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra will be significantly more expensive than last year’s Galaxy S22 Ultra!. Here are the leaked prices for Europe:

Models Variant Launch
Prices
Premium Over
S22 Models
Galaxy S23 Ultra 8 GB + 256 GB
12 GB + 512 GB
€1399/1409
€1589
NA
+ €139

While the increased price may be disappointing, Samsung will potentially boost pre-order sales by offering a free upgrade to the next storage variant.

For example, if you pre-order the Galaxy S23 Ultra with 256 GB storage, you will get the 512 GB variant instead. This is based on a leak on the Samsung UK Business portal that states:

Pre-order from Samsung.com by 16.02.23. Operates as a price discount:

Pre-order the larger storage variant (S23 256GB, 523+ 512GB, 523 Ultra 512GB) by 16.02.23 and pay the future price of the smaller storage variant (523 128GB, S23+ 256GB, S23 Ultra 256GB).

This free upgrade will only be offered for the pre-order period, and is essentially a 10% discount on the price of the higher-capacity model.

Did Chris ‘Swaggy’ Baker Get Stroke From Vaccine?!

Did former NFL defensive tackle Chris ‘Swaggy’ Baker suffer from a stroke caused by the COVID-19 vaccine?!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Chris ‘Swaggy’ Baker Suffered Stroke From COVID-19 Vaccine!

Right after Chris ‘Swaggy’ Baker announced that he just suffered from a stroke, anti-vaccination activists immediately claimed that the 25 year-old former NFL defensive tackle was a victim of the COVID-19 vaccine!

Another day, another athlete with an almost fatal stroke. But we can’t say it had anything to do with the vaccine, can we?#VaccineInjured Former NFL Player Chris Baker, 35, Says He Almost Died of a Stroke: ‘God Not Done With Me Yet’

Another athlete Another stroke ! 35-year-old former #NFL player Chris Baker almost died of stroke ! Could it be ? #Vaccine . Get your booster now ! #FAUCI #NIH #FDA #CDC #CCP #WUHAN #WHO #PHARMA

Another former NFL Football player, STROKE, at 35, why did he have a stroke, I never heard of this before.

Recommended : Died Suddenly : Anti-Vaccination Movie Lies Exposed!

 

No Evidence Chris ‘Swaggy’ Baker Suffered Stroke From COVID-19 Vaccine!

It’s now a tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all athlete deaths or illnesses on the COVID-19 vaccine.

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Chris Baker Announced He Suffered A Stroke

Chris Baker (born Christopher Isaiah Baker on October 8, 1987) nicknamed ‘Swaggy’ is a former American football defensive tackle who played nine seasons in the National Football League (NFL).

On Tuesday, 24 January, 2023, Baker announced on an Instagram story that he suffered a stroke, and almost died two days earlier.

Tell your loved ones you love ’em, my life almost ended 2 days ago. I can’t believe I had a stroke but God not done with me yet.

He also shared a video from a Hartford, Connecticut hospital room, showing him sitting up and stalking to a nurse, while hooked up on an IV drip.

Fact #2 : Cause Of Chris Baker’s Stroke Is Still Unknown

According to TMZ Sports, his mother said that Chris Baker suffered the “serious” stroke on Friday, January 20, 2023, and required emergency surgery.

However, his doctors have said that he was responding as if it was a “minor” stroke, and he is expected to make a full recovery.

Currently, the cause of his stroke has not been revealed, and Chris Baker himself never blamed the vaccine for it.

There is simply no evidence that Chris Baker suffered his stroke because of the COVID-19 vaccine.

Recommended : Did Damar Hamlin Collapse From Vaccine SADS?!

Fact #3 : Chris Baker Was Likely Not Vaccinated Against COVID-19

It is likely that Chris ‘Swaggy’ Baker was never vaccinated against COVID-19, even though he never publicly said so.

For one thing, the COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in the United States or the NFL, at least for the coaches and players. In any case, it wouldn’t have mattered for Swaggy, because he last played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in February 2018.

More importantly, Chris Baker publicly came out against the COVID-19 vaccines, posting on January 3, 2022 that “vaccine don’t even work”.

I wish you would stop shaming unvaccinated people as if it’s a problem we all have choices.

That vaccine don’t even work. Vaccinated or unvaccinated you still can catch Covid and have to quarantine 5 days now 🤷🏾‍♂️🤷🏾‍♂️

He continued on January 4, 2022, claiming that “the vaccine doesn’t work” and “the vaccine is a waste of time“.

I’m sure you heard this on the news which lies all day every day🤷🏾‍♂️🤷🏾‍♂️🤷🏾‍♂️ my body my choice and IMO the vaccine doesn’t work it’s just an agenda being pushed on people.

we’ll just have to agree to disagree about the vaccination the research I’ve done has shown the vaccine is a waste of time but that’s my opinion 🤷🏾‍♂️

Unless Swaggy himself confirms that he was vaccinated against COVID-19 in spite of his prior comments, it would be wrong to blame his stroke on the COVID-19 vaccine.

Fact #4 : Strokes Can Happen In Young People 

While people claim that it is impossible or rare for young people to suffer from strokes, that’s not true.

According to a February 2020 study published in the journal Stroke, about 10% to 15% of strokes occur in adults under 50, and the rate is increasing among young and middle-aged people.

With almost 800,000 people in the United States suffering from a stroke every single year, about 80,000 to 120,000 strokes occur in adults under 50.

In young people, the risk of strokes is increased by these factors:

  • patent foramen ovale (PFO) : about 1 in 4 people have this small hole between the wall dividing the right and left atrium of the heart. This was what caused Kris Letang’s stroke.
  • arterial dissection : up to 25% of strokes in people under 45 are caused by a dissecting blood vessel in the neck that occurs spontaneously, but can also be caused by sports-related trauma, or whiplash.
  • blood clotting disorders like sickle cell disease, which affects 1 in every 365 African Americans.
  • substance abuse : drugs like cocaine can contribute to strokes by constricting blood vessels while increasing the clumping of blood cells.

While we do not yet know what caused Chris Baker’s stroke, the takeaway is this – it is not rare for young adults to suffer from a stroke.

Fact #5 : Claims Of Athletes Injured By COVID-19 Vaccine Proven False

This is yet another example of anti-vaccination activists abusing athlete deaths / injuries to create and propagate FAKE NEWS about the safety and efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines.

So far, claims of athlete deaths / injuries due to the COVID-19 vaccine have been proven false at every instance.

Will these anti-vaccination activists apologise for lying to you? Nope! They will just move on to the next athlete tragedy…

Did Jessie Lemonier Die Suddenly Of Vaccine SADS?!

Did former NFL linebacker Jessie Lemonier die suddenly from vaccine SADS?!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Jessie Lemonier Died Suddenly From Vaccine SADS!

Right after news broke that Jessie Lemonier died suddenly, anti-vaccination activists immediately claimed that the 25 year-old former NFL linebacker was a victim of COVID-19 vaccine sudden adult death syndrome (SADS)!

Peter A. McCullough, MD, MPH : Need brand, dose 1, 2, 3, autopsy. “Until proven otherwise.” #courageousdiscourse @nfl @nflnetwork @ESPNNFL @NFLonFOX @EmeraldRobinson @AbsoluteWithE @realstewpeters @chrisagillespie @SteveDeaceShow @RMConservative @larryelder

Dr. Robert Malone (Inventor of mRNA Vaccine Tech) Warned of Risks and said within 2 to 3 years, people will be dropping dead without reason. 3 years later N its happening.

No Evidence Jessie Lemonier Died From Vaccine SADS!

It’s now a tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all athlete deaths or illnesses on the COVID-19 vaccine.

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Jessie Lemonier’s Cause of Death Is Still Unknown

Jessie Lemonier (born Jessie Nathaniel Lemonier on January 31, 1997) was a former American football outside linebacker who played for the Los Angeles Chargers and the Detroit Lions.

On Thursday morning, 26 January, 2023, the Detroit Lions announced his death:

We are shocked and saddened to learn of the passing of former Detroit Lion Jessie Lemonier.

Jessie was a model teammate and wonderful young man who is gone far too soon. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends during this difficult time.

His agent, Drew Smith, confirmed his death, and said that Jessie Lemonier had been expecting a child with his girlfriend. He would have turned 26 on Tuesday.

Jessie Lemonier’s official cause of death has not been revealed by his former team, his agent or his family. Neither did they reveal the circumstances behind his death. Therefore, it would be wrong for anyone to claim that Jessie Lemonier died from vaccine SADS.

Jessie Lemonier could have died in an accident, from a fall, a pre-existing health condition, or suicide. Until his family reveals more details, there is simply no way for us to know, for certain, how he died and what he died from.

Fact #2 : Breiden Fehoko Suggested Jessie Lemonier Committed Suicide

His friend and former teammate at the Los Angeles Chargers, Breiden Fehoko, suggested that Jessie Lemonier committed suicide, in his tribute post:

My brother man. 💔💔 We came in to the league together had to battle through everything rookie year to get where we are. You were always filled with life bro. I LOVE YOU BRO! Please check up on your people. PLEASE

Calling for people to “check up” family and friends is often used as a code by people whose friends and loved ones have taken their own lives. For example, with Sam Westmoreland, Victoria Lee, Adam Exton, and Adrian Dingle.

However, I would like to point out that this does not confirm that Jessie Lemonier committed suicide. Breiden Fehoko did not directly claim that he did.

Therefore, we should all wait for an official cause of death, whether revealed by his family or an autopsy report, before claiming that Jessie Lemonier died from this or that cause.

Recommended : Did Damar Hamlin Collapse From Vaccine SADS?!

Fact #3 : Unknown If Jessie Lemonier Was Vaccinated Against COVID-19

It is unknown if Jessie Lemonier was vaccinated against COVID-19, as he has never publicly stated his vaccination status, or his preference for or against the vaccines.

The COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in the United States or the NFL, at least for the coaches and players.

While the NFL strongly encouraged COVID-19 vaccinations, it only requires employees in contact with players to be fully-vaccinated. Surprisingly, coaches and players were not subject to any vaccine mandate, and all COVID-19 protocols were dropped in March 2022.

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, for example, was notorious for refusing to get vaccinated against COVID-19.

Until and unless we know his COVID-19 vaccination status, it would be wrong for anyone to claim that he suffered any kind of vaccine injury.

Fact #4 : Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Hours / Days

Even if Jessie Lemonier was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19, it is impossible for the COVID-19 vaccine to cause his “collapse” as he would have received his doses many months ago!

He cannot possibly be suffering from a vaccine side effect, because they appear within hours or days, not months later.

Mild side effects like injection site pain, fever, muscle ache, headache, lethargy develop within minutes to hours of the vaccination.

Anaphylaxis develops within minutes, while other severe adverse reactions like myocarditis and VITT develop within days.

The spike proteins produced by the COVID-19 vaccines also do not stick around for months. If these spike proteins are permanent (as antivaxxers claim), we would have lifelong immunity.

Your own immune system will identify the spike proteins as foreign, and destroy them within a matter of days, although some may last for up to a few weeks. This is part of how vaccines teach your immune system to identify the enemy and destroy it.

Fact #5 : Claims Of Athletes Injured By COVID-19 Vaccine Proven False

Hell is Others

Hell is Others is an extraction horror PVPVE top-down shooter. Outside the safety of your apartment lies the noir hellscape of Century City. A city of endless night that straddles the line between reality and insanity. Explore, hunt and loot in a place where blood is currency.

Adam Smithson does his best to exist in his tiny apartment, alone, high above Century City. His only companion is a bonsai tree, which he dutifully cares for—perhaps only to pass the time. Time which seems to have no beginning or end. But like everything else in the city, his plants require blood to survive.

So Adam is forced to find a regular supply on the dark streets below. An elevator lowers Adam into the shadowy nightmare of the city where the hunt begins. In a place where blood is currency, and the only way out is down, Adam must survive and thrive the best he can while confronting others with the same goal in mind.

A unique, multiplayer online extraction game, Hell is Others allows you to progress your character by way of customizable items you obtain for your apartment. Grow your own ammunition via blood-thirsty plants, explore the noir urban setting, confront The Others, and do your best to live to see another day… A day which never seems to come.

PVP

Stalking the same pathways you do are monsters that feel familiar to Adam, close yet so distant, maybe The Others are just like you. As fast as predator can become prey, make sure you’re using all of Adams’s senses to stay on top of the food chain. The Others not only want your blood, but to strip away all the precious items you’ve collected for their own purposes.

PVE

This city is filled with the unknown evils of the world. In every alleyway, shop entrance, and cross walk, The Things lay in wait for the perfect time to strike in order to steal away the highly-valuable blood in your veins.

Grow Your Ammo

Ensuring your plants grow big and healthy requires a constant supply of blood. But what if enhancing your crops yielded bigger, better results? By adding fertilizers, you can create a wide range of bullet-producing plants. Grow more powerful ammo, add unique features like bouncing bullets or silent varieties. The possibilities are endless…

Build Your Safe Place

Customize Adam’s apartment with new objects and appliances to convert the tiny apartment into a comfortable fortress. Besides simple decoration, every item has added benefits or perks for Adam while he is down in Century City trying to survive.

Tick Tock

You have a limited time to do your business once down in the city. Lookup for an elevator and go back home before it’s too late, or you might just end up losing what’s in your pockets. But watch out! You’re not the only one that wants to go back to his safe home.

The Cycle : Frontier – Get Fortuna Survivor For FREE!

The Fortuna Survivor DLC for The Cycle : Frontier is FREE to download and keep!

Find out how to get it FREE, and make sure you TELL your friends!

Don’t forget to LIKE the Tech ARP Facebook page or Telegram channel to get these updates quickly!

 

The Cycle : Frontier

The Cycle : Frontier is a free-to-play PvPvE Extraction Shooter driven by suspense and danger. Prospect for resources and other riches on an abandoned alien world ravaged by a deadly storm, inhabited by monsters and other ambitious Prospectors.

You’re a Prospector living aboard Prospect Station orbiting the dangerous alien planet known as Fortuna III. The powerful factions running the Station often send you on missions in search of resources and precious loot.

Choose the gear and weapons best suited to your goals, pick your destination and within mere seconds you’re dropping down onto the surface, ready for adventure. Be prepared for Prospectors like you out there, with their own goals and agenda.

GREATER RISKS YIELD GREATER REWARDS

Which jobs to tackle and where to explore is entirely up to you but keep your guard up: Fortuna III is a dangerous place! Your goal is to survive and escape to the station with whatever loot you’ve managed to acquire, picked up from the ground or taken by force.

The risks are yours to take. Falling prey to the planet’s dangers will see your body encased in protective foam, with your loot and equipped gear left behind – but should you manage to escape, ka-ching!

Other players will also be wandering each of the three available maps. They have their own agendas and are likely armed to the teeth. Fights are tough and can end quickly, so be sure to trust your eyes and ears, use the terrain and pick your fights carefully – sometimes it’s best to talk your way out of a sticky situation.

Other players aren’t the only threat though, as packs of hostile aliens and a supercharged radioactive Storm try their best to bring your forays to a premature end.

A WORLD OF TREACHEROUS BEAUTY

Three locations are currently available in-game, each with their own rich environment, dangers, and secrets to discover. Bright Sands is where most Prospectors will earn their first stripes. Many abandoned human structures found there can be searched for crafting materials and other loot. The local fauna is aggressive but not quite as dangerous as in other locations.

Crescent Falls is the largest map, with very diverse biomes ranging from desert to jungle. The wildlife is considerably more dangerous, but the valuable loot makes it all worthwhile. This is also where higher level missions happen, which include calling a giant laser drill for big profit and, for the dungeon-delvers among you, exploring the Crusher Caverns.

Tharis Island is the newest map introduced with Season 2. It’s a small remote island host to labyrinthian cave systems, full of secrets, highly valuable materials and, of course, highly dangerous wildlife. Expeditions to the island are no walk in the park and players will have to gain experience first and unlock access through the faction campaigns. The depths of Tharis Island offer the most tense and challenging version of The Cycle: Frontier yet – the highest risks for the highest rewards!

PROSPECTING ISN’T EVERYTHING

Whether in an escape shuttle with a backpack full of riches or covered in foam and bare of your belongings, each trip to the surface will see you back home – Prospect Station. This is where all that precious loot can be put to good use: buying and crafting better gear and upgrading your private quarters. New jobs and missions from the three factions are also available.

The more of those you complete, the higher your faction levels, giving you access to better gear. Special faction campaigns are a great way to learn more about the world of The Cycle: Frontier – especially after a significant expansion in Season 2.

In addition to the standard issue Co-Tec weapons, you can unlock more powerful gear from the faction arsenal over time, all the way to legendary weapons like the infamous Zeus Beam. You can further modify weapons with a variety of attachments to fit your needs and play style.

These range from a simple flashlight, to expanded magazines, armor penetration mods and more. Finally, a new way to add powerful perks to your weapons and equipment lies buried in the depths of Tharis Island, waiting to be discovered!

Dungeon of the ENDLESS + 3 DLCs : Get Them FREE!

Dungeon of the ENDLESS and THREE of its DLCs are FREE for a limited time!

Find out how to get Dungeon of the ENDLESS and its Deep Freeze DLC for FREE, and make sure you tell your friends!

Don’t forget to LIKE the Tech ARP Facebook page or Telegram channel to get these updates quickly!

 

Dungeon of the ENDLESS

Dungeon of the Endless is a Rogue-Like Dungeon-Defense game, in which the player and their team of heroes must protect the generator of their crashed ship while exploring an ever-expanding dungeon, all while facing waves of monsters and special events as they try to find their way out…

Dungeon of the Endless includes all the Crystal Edition bonuses:

– “The Library” spaceship that unlocks a new mode for the game (“Bookworm” add-on)
– Hero “Josh ‘Ntello” (“Bookworm” add-on)
– Official Digital Soundtrack by FlybyNo in mp3 format
– Unique badge for your Amplitude Games2Gether account
– Adds 200 points to the value of your votes on Games2Gether

A few hundred condemned criminals were being shipped to the Auriga system on board the prison hulk “Success”. While this was presented as a chance to earn back their place in society by working hard for the common good, they understood that in fact they would be slave labour, sent to colonize an unexplored planet. All they knew about Auriga Prime was what the probes told them: it had water, temperate zones, plant life, and plenty of metals in the crust.

In fact, the planet Auriga once hosted a major settlement of the galaxy-travelling ancestors known as the Endless. In addition, the planet was still orbited by a functioning (and well cloaked) defensive system, which sprang eagerly to life upon the arrival of the Success. Within a few minutes, the ship was nothing but a few large chunks of metal falling toward the planet.

Every set of holding cells also functioned as an escape pod, so the ship let itself disintegrate and the surviving prisoners fell bruised but (temporarily) alive and (momentarily) safe to the planet below. Safe, that is, until they realized that they had crashed through some sort of facility of the Endless, down to a sub-basement so deep and ancient it might as well be called a dungeon…

 

Dungeon of the ENDLESS : Deep Freeze DLC

The Deep Freeze DLC adds the “The Refreezerator” spaceship that unlocks a new mode for the game.

  • One faster and stronger hero for entire game.
  • Quick heal with Food not possible.
  • Dead hero resurrected by consuming Food stock.
  • No Science module at game start, but larger reserve of Resources, items, and modules.

It also adds Kreyang to the hero cast of the game.

Known as “Defender of the Archives”, Kreyang kept this title even after an unfortunate event in a cryogenic chamber altered her cell structure. Now forbidden to touch her beloved archives for fear of damaging them, Kreyang is triply ferocious in defending Drakken history and lore.

 

Dungeon of the ENDLESS : Rescue Team Add-on

The prison hulk “Success” has mysteriously crashed. Uncharted part of the galaxy? Unknown planet? When everything goes awry, who you gonna call? The Rescue Team!

Meet Sasha, Zugma and Wes, the funky heroes assigned to the “Success” mission. Failure is obviously not an option.

 

Dungeon of the ENDLESS : Lost Symphony

Endless Space 2: Lost Symphony enriches the game with 7 exclusive new tracks, and marks the return of a fan favorite Minor Faction: the Harmony.

Step 28 : The game and its DLC will not appear in your Steam account right away. To immediately add them to your Steam account, click on the Refresh button in your Games2Gether Link Account page.

Step 29 : You will be asked to sign into your Steam account again.

That’s it! You now have both Dungeon of the ENDLESS and the three DLCs in your Steam account.

 

Dungeon of the ENDLESS + DLCs : Workaround Method

The Amplifiers website is rather buggy, and you may need to repeat from Step 8 once or twice before the game shows up in your Steam account.

If repeating does not add the game and the three DLC to your Steam account, there is a workaround I managed to find around the website bug:

Alternate Step 1 : Look for these 3 free games in the Rewards page.

Alternate Step 2 : Click on Dungeon of the ENDLESS option, and follow Step 8 above.

Alternate Step 3 : Click on Dungeon of the ENDLESS – Deep Freeze option, and follow Step 19 above.

Alternate Step 3 : Click on Dungeon of the ENDLESS – Lost Symphony option, and follow Step 24 above.

Note : Love Thyself is a perpetually-free visual novel on Steam.

Samsung Galaxy S23 Series : What Leaked So Far!

Take a look at the key details and specifications that has leaked ahead of the official launch of the Samsung Galaxy S23 series smartphones!

 

Samsung Galaxy S23 Series : What Leaked So Far!

Ahead of the official launch of the Galaxy S23 series, key details and specifications of Samsung’s upcoming flagship smartphones have leaked!

Boosted Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2

The Samsung Galaxy S23 smartphones will use a specially-boosted variant of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 mobile SoC, which features a quad-cluster architecture:

  • 1 x Arm Cortex-X3 core (3.36 GHz, instead of 3.2 GHz)
  • 2 x Arm Cortex-A715 cores (2.8 GHz)
  • 2 x Arm Cortex-A710 cores (2.8 GHz)
  • 3 x Arm Cortex-A510 cores (2.0 GHz)

Here is a quick comparison between the boosted Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, and the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 mobile SoC used in the Galaxy S22 series:

Specifications Galaxy S23 Series Galaxy S22 Series
Mobile SoC Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 Snapdragon 8 Gen 1
CPU Clusters 4 3
CPU Cores 1 x Cortex-X3 (3.36 GHz)
2 x Cortex-A715 (2.8 GHz)
2 x Cortex-A710 (2.8 GHz)
3 x Cortex-A510 (2.0 GHz)
1 x Cortex-X2 (3.0 GHz)
3 x Cortex-A710 (2.5 GHz)
4 x Cortex-A510 (1.8 GHz)
GPU Qualcomm Adreno 740 Qualcomm Adreno 730

200 MP Main Camera

Arguably the biggest upgrade in the Galaxy S22 Ultra is its new main camera, which is built around the 200 MP Samsung ISOCELL HP2 (S5KHP2) sensor, and features a slightly wider f/1.7 aperture.

This is a large 1/1.3-inch sensor with 200 million pixels, each of which is 0.6 μm in size. The Galaxy S23 Ultra camera will be able to combine up to 16 pixels to form a single large pixel – a pixel binning technique called Tetra2pixel.

The number of pixels binned will vary according to the photography conditions. In low-light conditions, up to 16 pixels can be combined to create a large 2.4 μm pixel, for a 12.5 MP photo.

On top of that, the new Samsung ISOCELL HP2 sensor also offers better auto-focus performance in low-light conditions through Super QPD autofocus. By using all 200 million pixels, which are physically grouped as four pixels under a single microns, the sensor can detect patterns in both vertical and horizontal directions for faster low-light focusing.

Similar Telephoto + Wide-Angle Cameras

The Samsung Galaxy S23 series will reuse the same 3X and 10X zoom cameras from the Galaxy S22 series, right down to their Sony IMX754 sensors.

The ultra-wide angle camera gets a newer sensor – the Sony IMX564, which appears to be an incremental upgrade of the S22 Ultra’s IMX563.

Colour Options

The Samsung Galaxy S23 series smartphones will come in four colour options:

  • Botanic Green
  • Cotton Flower
  • Misty Lilac
  • Phantom Black

This is the only dampener amongst the leaks – be prepared to pay more for the Galaxy S23 smartphones! Here are the leaked prices for Europe:

Pre-Order Offer

While the increased price may be disappointing, Samsung will potentially boost pre-order sales by offering a free upgrade to the next storage variant.

For example, if you pre-order the Galaxy S23 with 128 GB storage, you will get the 256 GB variant instead. This is based on a leak on the Samsung UK Business portal that states:

Pre-order from Samsung.com by 16.02.23. Operates as a price discount:

Pre-order the larger storage variant (S23 256GB, 523+ 512GB, 523 Ultra 512GB) by 16.02.23 and pay the future price of the smaller storage variant (523 128GB, S23+ 256GB, S23 Ultra 256GB).

This free upgrade will only be offered for the pre-order period, and is essentially a 10% discount on the price of the higher-capacity model.

Angela Lee : STOP conspiracy theories about Victoria!

Angela Lee has spoken up against the conspiracy theories around her sister, Victoria, who passed away suddenly.

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

Conspiracy theories that Victoria Lee died from vaccine SADS!

Right after news broke that Victoria Lee died suddenly, anti-vaccination activists immediately claimed that the 18 year-old rising MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) star was a victim of COVID-19 vaccine sudden adult death syndrome (SADS)!

“Rising MMA star Victoria Lee dies at 18”
RIP ✝️ SAD (in more ways than ¹ )

Covid vaccines and vigorous sports is dangerous to your health! How many boosters did Victoria have? 🤔

Angela Lee : STOP conspiracy theories about Victoria!

Victoria Lee (born Victoria Sun-hei Lee on May 17, 2004) was an American mixed martial artist, who was the youngest fighter to ever compete in ONE Championship.

She was the sister of MMA fighters Angela Lee and Christian Lee, and was the current ONE women’s atomweight champion, having successfully defended the title five times since she won it in 2016.

On Saturday, January 7, 2023, Angela Lee announced that her younger sister, Victoria Lee, died almost two weeks earlier – on Monday, December 26, 2022. Victoria Lee was only 18 years old when she died.

On December 26, 2022 our family experienced something no family should ever have to go through…
It is incredibly difficult to say this…
Our Victoria passed away.

She has gone too soon and our family has been completely devastated since then.
We miss her. More than anything in this world. Our family will never be the same. Life will never be the same.

The death of a young person, MMA protege or not, would have been devastating for any family. Unfortunately, her family has had to endure tremendous amount of public scrutiny and conspiracy theories about Victoria Lee’s sudden death.

A celebration of her life was held on January 22, 2023, before her burial at the Valley of the Temples Memorial Park. But due to the intense public and media scrutiny, her family changed it to a closed event for her immediate family only.

On January 9, 2023 – two days after Angela Lee announced her sister’s death, it was reported that her family closed their gym – United MMA Hawaii, after sending out notices cancelling all memberships.

Read more : United MMA Hawaii Closes After Victoria Lee’s Death!

If closing the gym was their attempt to stop media scrutiny and conspiracy theorists, it didn’t work, as some people apparently went to the extent of hiring private investigators!

On January 14, 2023, Angela Lee posted a tribute video on her sister, and asked that people stop contacting them, stop hiring private investigators, and stop promoting conspiracy theories on Victoria’s sudden death.

Angela Lee also reminded everyone that her family do not wish to give any further public statements on her sister’s death.

Thank you @onechampionship and @yodchatri for this beautiful tribute video honoring Victoria. This video is just a short clip of the beautiful, brilliant, kind and hardworking person Victoria was. She was down to earth, with unshakable determination and a heart of gold.

To our community & close friends,
Thank you for your kind words and prayers for our family during this time.
This has been, and continues to be, an extremely difficult time for our family.

Unfortunately, due to the media outbreak, we have decided as a family to make Victoria’s celebration of life a closed event; For immediate family only.
We greatly appreciate your understanding.

I would also like to address the media and news outlets that have tried to contact myself, my parents and any other members of my family during this time. I ask that you respect our wishes to not give any further public statements.
Stop contacting us, stop hiring private investigators, stop with the conspiracy theories.

Please show some respect and give us our time and space to grieve.

Read more : Did MMA prodigy Victoria Lee die from vaccine SADS?!

American MMA fighter Dan Ige, who is also from Hawaii, spoke up as well against the conspiracy theories surrounding Victoria Lee.

Speaking to reporters after winning at UFC Fight Night 217, he called for people to give her family some “freaking respect” :

Honestly, it’s super hard. I never knew Victoria. I know Christian, I know Angela, I know her husband, I know their dad. When that news came out, a girl being so young, 18, tons of potential, loved by so many, it’s just heartbreaking because that’s one of our own. I pray that people give them the respect, because on social media everyone wants to come up with the conspiracy.

Was it the vaccine? Was it mental health? Was it this? Was it that? Like, give them freaking respect, because that’s their tragedy, that’s their loss. … Give them some respect. An 18-year-old girl passes, and they’re going to mourn that for the rest of their lives. We’re going to wake up Monday and f*cking read the newspaper, ‘What’s next?’ They have to mourn that. It’s an absolute tragedy. They were definitely weighing on my heart, and the only thing you can do is pray for them, because she’s gone, and there’s no bringing her back.

As much as I commiserate with the Lee family, I don’t think their pleas will deter the conspiracy theories surrounding Victoria’s death. Even today, people still chalk her death up to the COVID-19 vaccines, despite an absolute absence of any evidence.

This tradition of blaming the vaccines for any sudden death isn’t new. Even worse – people continue to spread those fake news even after their deaths were proven to be completely unrelated to the vaccines.

Just take a look at the long list of athletes whose deaths were blamed on the COVID-19 vaccines, without evidence!

Will these anti-vaccination activists apologise for lying to you? Nope! They will just move on to the next athlete tragedy…

Did Klaus Schwab Ban Vaccinated Pilots @ WEF 2023?!

Did WEF founder Klaus Schwab ban vaccinated pilots from transporting World Economic Forum members in and out of Davos 2023?!

Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Klaus Schwab Banned Vaccinated Pilots From WEF 2023!

Various websites and social media users are claiming that WEF founder Klaus Schwab banned vaccinated pilots from transporting World Economic Forum members in and out of Davos 2023!

Here is one example, which is rather long, so feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

WEF Hires Unvaccinated Pilots To Fly Them Into Davos: “Safety of Our Members Is No. 1 Priority”

Klaus Schwab has banned vaccinated pilots from transporting World Economic Forum members in and out of Davos due to the safety risk they pose.

Recommended : Died Suddenly : Anti-Vaccination Movie Lies Exposed!

 

Truth : Klaus Schwab Did Not Ban Vaccinated Pilots From WEF 2023!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and/or propagated by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : No Evidence Vaccinated Pilots Pose Any Safety Risk

This fake news appears to be based around prior claims that vaccinated airline pilots have a high risk of dying suddenly.

It may also be fuelled by the recent baseless allegations that the FAA loosened rules on pilot EKGs because so many of them had heart problems from the COVID-19 vaccines.

In any case, there is no evidence that vaccinated pilots pose any safety risk to their passengers, whether WEF 2023 attendees flying on private jets, or regular passengers on commercial airlines.

Fact #2 : Claim Was Based On Second-Hand Information

While the article claims that there are multiple “reports”, the only source for this claim is an interview with former Jetstar pilot Alan Dana on Maria Zeee Uncensored.

Even so, Alan Dana was relaying second-hand information from someone else – Josh Yoder – the head of US Freedom Flyers – which Infowars peg as “an anti-vaccine mandate group of pilots”.

He’s getting calls now from wealthy businessmen and companies to fly their executives around on business jets with unvaccinated crew.

They get the luxury of being able to choose, because there are still a large amount of crew available in the United States who are not vaccinated because the companies they work for didn’t mandate it.

These wealthy businessmen are requiring unvaccinated crew on their business trips. Passengers on an airline who bought a ticket don’t have that luxury.

Recommended : Did FAA Admit Pilot EKGs Not Normal After Vaccines?!

Fact #3 : No Evidence Of Vaccinated Pilot Ban At Davos 2023

There is no evidence that Klaus Schwab banned vaccinated pilots from transporting World Economic Forum members in and out of Davos for WEF 2023.

Schwab is merely the founder and chairman of the World Economic Forum, and has no power over air travel policies in Switzerland. It would impossible for him to institute any ban on vaccinated pilot, even if he was so inclined.

And consider this for a moment – how would these ultra-rich WEF attendees prove that their pilots are unvaccinated? Is there an unvaccinated certificate?

Fact #4 : No Evidence WEF Hired Pilots

There is no evidence that the World Economic Forum hired pilots to transport attendees to its 2023 annual meeting.

The World Economic Forum organisation only organises the annual meeting, but does not handle the transportation or accommodation for attendees.

Fact #5 : Most WEF Attendees Do Not Fly By Private Jet

On average, about 3,000 people attend each World Economic Forum annual meeting. While many of the ultra-rich fly by private jet to Davos for World Economic Forum 2023, they are relatively few – less than 150 private jets for the first 3 days.

Most WEF attendees likely flew by commercial airlines to Zurich Airport, or if they are Europeans – took the train as recommended by WEF 2023 organisers. I mention this only because most airlines require their pilots to be fully-vaccinated.

Therefore, it would be rather pointless for Klaus Schwab to ban vaccinated pilots for private jets, when most attendees are being flown into Switzerland by vaccinated pilots on commercial airlines.

Recommended : Is Interpol Investigating Klaus Schwab For Genocide?!

Fact #6 : Josh Yoder Refuted Viral Claim!

Ironically, Josh Yoder himself – the original source – refuted the claim in a tweet on January 15, 2023! He also called for people to unfollow people making such claims!

He stated that he only said that wealthy businessmen reached out to him to look for unvaccinated pilot. He never said that it was WEF or Davos who reached out to him.

He also notably did not say that the unvaccinated were being hired to ferry those rich people to Davos for World Economic Forum 2023.

Click bait journalism is a scourge. I never said that the WEF/Davos has reached out looking for unvaccinated pilots. What I did say was that wealthy businessmen have reached out to me for that purpose. Unfollow anyone spreading this garbage.@USFreedomFlyers @TuckerCarlson

Fact #7 : No Evidence Businessmen Are Looking For Unvaccinated Pilots

Even that less dramatic claim by Josh Yoder is impossible to verify. There is no other source for his claim. Neither has other private jet pilots or companies publicly made similar claims.

It doesn’t help that Yoder himself is known for promoting conspiracy theories about COVID-19 and the vaccines.

I should point out that if these ultra-rich individuals are so concerned about COVID-19 vaccines, they would have long sought out unvaccinated pilots to fly their private jets, or engaged private jet companies with unvaccinated pilots.

They wouldn’t be hiring pilots just to fly to the World Economic Forum. There is no specific reason why there is additional risk flying to the WEF, as opposed to any other flight they would normally take.

Memorial Reveals Bizarre Details On Diamond’s Death!

The memorial of Lynette ‘Diamond’ Hardaway’s death was truly memorable for the bizarre details and claims by her sister, Silk, and other MAGA celebrities!

 

Lynette ‘Diamond’ Hardaway’s Sudden Death : What Happened?

Lynette Hardaway, better known as Diamond of the political commentator duo, Diamond and Silk, died on January 9, 2023.

Her sister, Rochelle Richardson – better known as Silk, announced her death, while asking for donations:

The World just lost a True Angel and Warrior Patriot for Freedom, Love, and Humanity! Please respect the privacy of Diamond’s family! Memorial Ceremony TBA. Contributions towards Preserving Diamond’s Legacy are only being accepted at the following link:

While Diamond dying from COVID-19 would seem like a fitting, if ironic, end for someone who pushed COVID-19 and vaccine misinformation, there is currently no actual evidence she died from COVID-19.

Yet, rumours continue to swirl around her sudden death, because her family still refuses to divulge Diamond’s cause of death.

Recommended : Died Suddenly : Anti-Vaccination Movie Lies Exposed!

 

Memorial Reveals Bizarre Details On Diamond’s Sudden Death!

On Saturday, January 21, 2023, a three-hour memorial service was held for Lynette ‘Diamond’ Hardaway in North Carolina, with many MAGA and conservative celebrities attending.

Her memorial turned out to be truly memorable, with bizarre details and claims by her sister, Silk, and other MAGA celebrities! Here is a selection of those bizarre claims and quotes!

Silk Suggests Diamond Was Poisoned By Vaccinated People!

Rochelle ‘Silk’ Richardson alluded that her sister, Diamond, was poisoned by… vaccinated people!

Instead of asking if Americans are vaxxed or unvaxxed, the real question to ask is – are Americans being poisoned?

In the wild, when they want to depopulate and sterilize a large group of animals, they usually inject one animal, and that one animal infect the rest of the animals.

So technically and according to the science, it doesn’t matter if you’re vaxxed or not. As long as the gain-of-function allows one injected person to transfer and infect another person, and that person infects another person, eventually everyone will be affected one way or the other.

So, in case some of you have been hiding under a rock, or still stuck in the now, people are dropping dead around here, and nobody is talking about it! They are dropping dead suddenly and unexpectedly.

The catchphrase is SADS – Sudden Adult Death Syndrome. Many call it a conspiracy theory, I call it murder!

What Silk has alluded to is what anti-vaccination activists are calling “vaccine shedding”. In reality – vaccine shedding only occurs with the attenuated vaccine technology, which is not used by any COVID-19 vaccines.

Instead, that is how COVID-19 spreads. One person gets infected, and he/she infects other people, who go on to infect more people. Unlike a real virus, vaccines cannot replicate and spread to other people.

If “vaccine shedding” with COVID-19 vaccines was possible, we wouldn’t need to organise mass vaccination campaigns globally. We would simply need to inject one person, as Silk suggested, and let it spread.

Incidentally, SADS (also known as Sudden Arrhythmic Death Syndrome) has nothing to do with COVID-19 vaccines because it was was first documented in 1977 – long before COVID-19 vaccines were invented!

SADS is also an inherited problem with your heart’s electrical system, which produces an abnormal heart rhythm that leads to a cardiac arrest. That’s why it can be prevented by implanting a cardioverter-defribillator.

SADS also occurs at a rate of 0.12 to 0.21 per 100,000 people every single year. In other words, approximately 9,000 to 16,000 people die from SADS every single year, before the COVID-19 vaccines were invented.

Silk Tells Of Diamond’s Final Moments

Silk then revealed her sister’s final moments, although she notably did not reveal Diamond’s cause of death.

What Silk said confirmed what MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell said earlier about Diamond’s sudden death – she was not sick, but suddenly collapsed before dying.

As soon as Diamond hung up the phone, she said to me, ‘I can’t breathe.’ It was sudden, out of nowhere, and no warning. I got her to the kitchen table, open up the back door, so she can get some air. And each breath was less, and less, and less, until her eyes became a stare.

My husband and I followed the 911 instructions …uh-uh-uh… from the lady. We laid her – she taught us to lay her flat. They said, do CPR, and it was one-two-three-four, one-two-three-four, one-two-three-four.

My husband and I alternated, and kept going and going and going until the emergency truck came, came into the yard and the EMS came into the house. They did everything they could.

But what I want to say to everybody is don’t you dare call me a conspiracy theorist, because I saw it happen. I saw how it happened. I was there when it happened, and it happened suddenly.

I want America to wake up and pay attention. Something ain’t right. It’s time to investigate what’s really going on here, and get some answers to why are people falling dead suddenly!

Silk does not mention the vaccine as causing her sister’s death. Neither did she confirm that Diamond was, or was not, vaccinated against COVID-19.

However, she alluded earlier that “COVID-19 vaccine shedding” might be causing unvaccinated people to die from vaccine SADS, which is a baseless and scientifically impossible claim.

Silk Threatens To File Complaint With Police

Silk also threatened to file a complaint with the Hoke County Sheriff’s Office for how they handled her sister’s death.

To the Hoke County Sheriff’s department, you have a rotten apple in the bunch.

While the body is still warm on the kitchen floor, you don’t overstep the next of kin then try and barge into my home, that I pay the bills for, illegally, with no warrant, to retrieve my sister’s dead body.

You don’t push yourself onto someone and then say “Don’t touch me”. Just because you are dressed in blue doesn’t mean you get to abuse the power you think you have.

Trump Forgot Who Silk Was!

Bizarrely, when Donald Trump got up to speak about Diamond in her memorial, he claimed that he only just found out about her sister, Silk, despite meeting and speaking to both several times in the past!

I thought I knew them both. I didn’t. I knew Diamond, but I didn’t know Silk at all. I just learned about Silk. You’re fantastic.

That was really awkward as it came after Silk spoke about how she loves Trump and the great times they had together.

For all of the bizarre quotes from Lynette Diamond Hardaway’s memorial, we are no closer to knowing her cause of death.

Until Diamond’s family reveals her cause of death, people will continue to speculate. If they refuse to reveal her cause of death, it will only fuel speculation that they are trying to conceal an inconvenient truth.

It is ironic that they would be faced with this decision, since many anti-vaccination activists have long mocked families for not revealing how their vaccinated loved ones “really died”. Most recently, they harassed CTV News reporter Jessica Cobb for refusing to reveal her medical condition after she appeared to faint on air.

Did FAA Admit Pilot EKGs Not Normal After Vaccines?!

Did the FAA admit that pilot EKGs are no longer normal, because the COVID-19 vaccines have damaged their hearts?!

Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : FAA Admitted Pilot EKGs Are Abnormal From COVID-19 Vaccines!

An article by Steve Kirsch has gone viral, claiming that the FAA admitted that pilot EKGs are no longer normal, because the COVID-19 vaccines have damaged the hearts of many pilots?!

Here is an excerpt, which itself is really long, so feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

In the October 2022 version of the FAA Guide for Aviation Medical Examiners, the FAA quietly widened the EKG parameters beyond the normal range (from a PR max of .2 to unlimited). And they didn’t widen the range by a little. They widened it by a lot. It was done after the vaccine rollout.

This is extraordinary. They did it hoping nobody would notice. It worked for a while. Nobody caught it.

But you can’t hide these things for long.

Recommended : Died Suddenly : Anti-Vaccination Movie Lies Exposed!

 

Truth : FAA Did Not Admit Pilot EKGs Are Abnormal From Vaccines!

This is yet another example of MISINFORMATION created and/or propagated by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : EKG = ECG

First, let me quickly clarify that EKG and ECG refer to the same test – electrocardiogram.

EKG is the abbreviation original German spelling (elektrokardiogramm), while ECG is the abbreviation for the English spelling.

Fact #2 : FAA Split 1st Degree AV Block Into Two Categories

On October 26, 2022, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) amended its medical policy on Heart Arrhythmias, specifically First-Degree Atrioventricular Block (1st Degree AV Block).

Previously, pilots with first-degree AV block were required to undergo tests and submit documentation to prove that they had “no evidence of structural function or coronary heart disease” to be certified to fly.

The FAA’s amended medical policy now splits pilots with first-degree AV block into two groups:

  • PR interval of less than 300 ms : certified for flight if no symptoms or Approved Medical Examiner (AME) concerns
  • PR interval of 300 ms or more : pilots must submit a current Holter and cardiac evaluation to the FAA for review

The claim that the FAA expanded the limit from 0.2 (seconds?) to unlimited is nonsense. There is a hard limit of 300 milliseconds (0.3 seconds) – from that point, the pilot must submit documentation for FAA’s evaluation.

Fact #3 : PR Interval Of Less Than 300 ms Usually Benign

The ECG of a person with a normal heart would generally have a PR interval of between 120 and 200 milliseconds. Anything above that usually indicates an AV block.

However, first-degree AV block is a misnomer – it only delays the electrical signal, it does not block it. Therefore, first-degree AV block often do not present with any noticeable symptoms.

On top of that, no treatment is indicated for people with first-degree AV block if their PR interval is less than 300 milliseconds, because it rarely causes any symptoms.

In an otherwise healthy heart, this is usually a benign condition and rarely causes any symptoms. In general, it does not require specific treatment besides a complete evaluation by a physician.

– Dr. Roland Assi, cardiac surgeon and assistant professor at Yale University

It is not uncommon for people to have such delays. If the [AV] block is less than 300 milliseconds, there is no indication for further therapy nor increased risk or impairment of bodily function

– Dr. Eric Adler, cardiologist and professor of medicine at University of California, San Diego.

Recommended : Did Zuckerberg Warn FB Staff Not To Get Vaccine?!

Fact #4 : Long PR Interval Not A Vaccine Side Effect

I should point out that longer PR interval is not a COVID-19 vaccine side effect. In fact, a PR interval of less than 300 milliseconds is considered normal in many healthy people, with a PR interval of less than 400 milliseconds normal in healthy athletes.

For reference, in healthy athletes a PR interval <400 msec is considered normal. So, the 300 msec cutoff may be considered conservative in many healthy people.

– Dr. Richard Kovacs, chief medical officer at the America College of Cardiology.

Fact #5 : Change Was Not Made Because Of Vaccine

The FAA has spoken out about the claim, stating that the decision to adjust their policy for first-degree AV block was based on current science and data, and not because pilots were developing heart problems from COVID-19 vaccinations.

When making changes to medical requirements and guidance, the FAA follows standard processes based on data and science.

Our cardiology consultants provided information that anything under 300ms requires no additional testing and is not a risk for sudden or subtle incapacitation.

Fact #6 : FAA Considered Long PR Interval Normal Before COVID-19 Vaccines

The FAA had earlier released a document that said that a first-degree AV block with PR interval between 0.21 and 0.29 seconds is considered normal.

That document was published on 3 July 2019 – more than 5 months before the first COVID-19 outbreak in China, and more than 17 months before the first COVID-19 vaccine was approved!

Recommended : Did CDC + FDA Warn Of Stroke From Pfizer Vaccine?!

Fact #6 : American College of Cardiology Approves Of New FAA Guidelines

Dr. Richard Kovacs, chief medical officer at the America College of Cardiology (ACC), said that the updated FAA criteria for widening ECG parameters for first-degree AV block is consistent with ACC guidelines.

The FAA’s updated criteria for widening the ECG parameters regarding AV Block are reasonable and consistent with ACC guideline recommendations.

Fact #7 : FAA Refutes Claims Of Complications From COVID-19 Vaccines

The FAA’s federal air surgeon has also determined that the Pfizer, Moderna, Johnson & Johnson, and Novavax COVIC-19 vaccines are safe for its pilots and air traffic controllers.

The FAA also refuted claims that COVID-19 vaccines have caused accidents or incapacitation of pilots:

The FAA has no evidence of aircraft accidents or incapacitations caused by pilots suffering medical complications associated with COVID-19 vaccine.

Did Zuckerberg Warn FB Staff Not To Get Vaccine?!

Did Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg warn Facebook staff not to get the mRNA COVID-19 vaccine?!

Take a look at the viral video, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Mark Zuckerberg Warned FB Staff Not To Get Vaccine!

A viral video clip of Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg has gone viral, together with claims that he was warning Facebook staff not to get the COVID-19 vaccine!

Steve Kirsch : LEAKED VIDEO: Facebook’s Zuckerberg Warned His Staff NOT To Get the Vaccine. But censors the info YOU see. You are the Guinea pigs.

Johnny Midnight : Zuckerberg warned his staff not to get the Vaccine 💉!

James Cintolo, RN FN CPT : 🚨BREAKING — Leaked Video Of Mark Zuckerberg Warning His Staff Not To Take A COVID Vaccine

Recommended : Died Suddenly : Anti-Vaccination Movie Lies Exposed!

 

Truth : Zuckerberg Did Not Warn FB Staff Not To Get COVID-19 Vaccine!

This is yet another example of MISINFORMATION created and/or propagated by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : The Viral Video Is Genuine

First, let me confirm that the video is genuine, and is not a deepfake production. As fake as it appear, that was really Mark Zuckerberg speaking in that video.

However, you will note that Zuckerberg did not actually tell or warn Facebook staff not to get the COVID-19 vaccine.

Fact #2 : The Viral Video Is More Than 2.5 Years Old

One version of the viral video was edited to state that it happen in August 2021, to give the impression that Mark Zuckerberg was advising Facebook staff against getting vaccinated.

The viral video clip is not new, as people are claiming on social media. It is actually a short segment of a virtual Q&A meeting for Facebook staff that was streamed live on July 16, 2020.

The video was only publicly revealed on February 17, 2021, when Project Veritas got a copy of the livestream, and leaked a very short segment of the entire video.

In other words – the video clip is old – it was recorded more than 30 months ago, and leaked more than 23 months ago.

Fact #3 : The Viral Video Was Edited Even More

Subsequently, the video was further edited again to cut out the parts in bold, to get the condensed 24-second video clip that just went viral on 21 January 2023.

I do just want to make sure that I share some caution on this because we just don’t know the long-term side effects of basically modifying people’s DNA and RNA to directly code in a person’s DNA and RNA.

Basically the ability to produce those antibodies and whether that causes other mutations or other risks downstream. So there’s work on both paths of vaccine development.

You will note that Zuckerberg misstated how mRNA vaccines work, and pointed out that there is work bering done on other types of COVID-19 vaccines.

Read more : Pfizer + Moderna mRNA Vaccines : How Do They Work?

Fact #4 : COVID-19 Vaccines Were Still In Development Then

It is impossible for Mark Zuckerberg to ask or warn Facebook staff not to get the COVID-19 vaccine, because when he made those comments, COVID-19 vaccines were still being developed.

Facebook spokesperson Andy Stone later clarified that the July 2020 discussion occurred shortly after Moderna released its initial-stage trial results for its mRNA-1273 COVID-19 vaccine candidate, which used the new, state-of-the-art messenger RNA technology.

There was very little public knowledge about mRNA technology at that time, so it is not surprising to see Mark Zuckerberg wonder about the risks of any new technology, like everyone else.

I should point out that, at that time, Moderna had not started its Phase 3 trial, which would eventually prove that the mRNA-1273 vaccine candidate would offer robust protection against hospitalisation and death from COVID-19.

After that successful Phase 3 trial, the mRNA-1273 vaccine candidate received an Emergency Use Authorisation (EUA) on December 18, 2020 as the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine. That was followed up with a full FDA approval on January 31, 2022, and it was henceforth marketed as Spikevax.

Fact #5 : mRNA Does Not Enter Cell Nucleus

mRNA vaccines do not enter the cell nucleus, and therefore, will not affect or interfere with the person’s DNA.

That is not my opinion, but is the official statement by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on the matter.

To enter the nucleus, the mRNA vaccine would need an enzyme called integrase (which the real SARS-CoV-2 virus produces). Without this integrase enzyme, the mRNA cannot physically enter the cell nucleus and therefore, cannot change or integrate with our DNA.

Some anti-vaccination activists are referring to a Feb 2022 study by Alden et. al as “evidence”, but the truth is – the study does not show that the Pfizer vaccine (which is not the Moderna vaccine) combined with DNA in liver cells.

Read more : Did Pfizer mRNA Vaccine Combine With DNA In Liver Cells?!

Fact #6 : Zuckerberg Clarified The Matter With Dr. Fauci

Mark Zuckerberg actually brought up the topic in a November 30, 2020 livestream with Dr. Anthony Fauci.

Zuckerberg : Just to clear up one point, my understanding is that these vaccines do not modify your DNA or RNA. So that’s just an important point to clarify, if I’m getting anything wrong here, of course correct me.

Dr. Fauci : No, first of all, DNA is inherent in your own nuclear cell. Sticking in anything foreign will ultimately get cleared.

Zuckerberg : I’m glad we can clear that up.

In other words, before Project Veritas even leaked the video, Mark Zuckerberg had already clarified with Dr. Anthony Fauci that mRNA vaccines cannot modify our DNA.

Fact #7 : Facebook Banned Claims mRNA Vaccines Alter DNA In 2021

We know that Mark Zuckerberg was convinced about the safety of the mRNA vaccines, and that they do not alter or change our DNA, because he banned any claim that the mRNA vaccines can change DNA on Facebook.

On February 8, 2021, Facebook updated its COVID-19 and vaccine policies to “protect people from harmful content and new types of abuse related to COVID-19 and vaccines“.

Facebook also said that it would remove posts that included “claims that the COVID-19 vaccine changes people’s DNA“.

Restricted F-16 + Missile Info Leaked In Game Forum!

Restricted information on the F-16 fighter jet and its AIM-120 AMRAAM missile were just leaked in the War Thunder game forum!

 

Restricted F-16 Fighter + Missile Info Leaked In Game Forum!

Fans of War Thunder are always arguing about fighter jets and their weapons in that free-to-play combat vehicle simulator game, and those arguments can get pretty heated.

One F-16 fighter jet discussion that started in July 2022 became more heated after the F-16 Fighting Falcon was added in the Apex Predator’s update in December.

On Monday, 16 January 2023, a War Thunder gamer called spacenavy90 accidentally posted Restricted information on the F-16 and its AIM-120 AMRAAM air-to-air missile, during a discussion on how accurately the War Thunder developers modelled the F-16’s flight and cockpit weapons control system, known as the Stores Control Panel (SCP).

Interesting thing I found during my research. During early AMRAAM testing you can see how F-16A would equip the AIM-120 and use TWS on the non-MFD stores control panel “SCP”:

He backed up his post by attaching four documents. Three appear to be research reports on the AIM-120 AMRAAM air-to-air missile, while the fourth was the F-16 Pilot’s Handbook for the AMRAAM missile.

  • (U) High-Performance Wingless Missile Research
  • (U) AIM-120 Advanced Medium Range Air-to-Air Missile (AMRAAM), Force Development Evaluation (FDE), Phase 3, Part B (3B)
  • (U) Weapons File, 2009
  • (U) Advanced Medium Range Air-to-Air Missile Manned Air Combat Simulation (AMRAAM MACS). F-16 Pilot’s Handbook

Recommended : Chinese DTC10-125 Anti-Tank Ammo Leaked In Game Forum!

 

Leaked F-16 Fighter + Missile Info : Old But Still Restricted!

Now, the documents were old and no longer classified. In fact, they were all marked “Unclassified”. So the offence wasn’t as egregious as the earlier leak of the Chinese DT10-125 tank ammunition!

The High-Performance Wingless Missile Research document, for example, was published in May 1999, while the F-16 pilot’s handbook on the AMRAAM missile was published in May 1982!

The AIM-120 AMRAAM Force Development Evaluation paper was newer, being published in August 2000, while the Weapons File was the newest document – published in July 2009.

However, they are all still considered Restricted information, as the documents were labelled “Export Controlled” and “DoD Only“, as well as “distribution authorised to US government agencies only“.

As another War Thunder gamer pointed out, “The penalty for conviction of unauthorised disclosure includes up to 10 years in prison, a large fine, or both.

A moderator quickly removed the documents, and replied to the post saying that they contained export-restricted information, and posting them was not permitted “per U.S. Laws on restricted and export restricted data“.

War Thunders developer, Gaijin Entertainment, later issued a statement :

A user posted some information on AMRAAM missiles for F-16. As far as we know, these documents are considered export restricted and are not meant to be shared or used by unauthorised people. We always delete posts containing classified or restricted information from our forum as soon as possible. We forbid our users to share documents like this on our platforms. We remind our users again and again that it’s both illegal and pointless, so they should never do that. We never use documents like this in our work.

So, we deleted the posts. The documents themselves were in fact posted via links to a third-party Discord server, so they were never actually uploaded to our own servers. In any case, we made sure that those links are not available to the visitors of our forum or our employees.

F-16 Fighter + Missile : Just Latest Leaked Info On War Thunder Forum!

This is hardly the first time military personnel and enthusiasts accidentally leaked sensitive or classified information during heated arguments.

Just 3 days ago, another War Thunder forum user posted screenshots of a USAF Air Combat Command paper manual published in 2015, and an F-15 operating manual published by McDonnell Douglas in 1993.

Both manuals had a printed warning that they “contain technical data whose export is restricted”, with violations “subject to severe criminal penalties”.

In June 2022, a photo of the tungsten penetrator of the latest DTC10-125 tank ammunition used in China’s main battle tanks was posted together with its classified technical data!

In 2021, parts of the United Kingdom’s Challenger 2 tank user manual was leaked by someone who claimed to be a Challenger 2 tank commander, who was trying to convince the game developers to make their in-game model closer to the real tank!

Say what you will – War Thunder gamers are really passionate about the game, and how accurately it reflects real-life military equipment!

Was Joe Biden Caught Groping Girl On Viral Video?!

Was President Joe Biden caught groping a girl in a viral video clip?!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : President Joe Biden Got Caught Groping A Girl On Video!

A short video clip of President Joe Biden has gone viral, with people claiming that he has finally been caught on camera molesting a young girl!

DeAnna Lorraine 🇺🇸 : This man just groped a woman on camera.

#StopTheWEFnow : Uncle Biden strikes again!!! 💥

This sex-crazed old man just can’t keep his hands off pretty girls.

When do people say enough is enough? When do the news networks stop protecting him and report this for what it is?

If Trump did that… #StopTheWEFnow

Moron, wet brains are screaming and kicking their feet about @Santos4Congress lying while running for political office but doing nothing about this bullshit.

WHAT IS THIS? It’s from a live broadcast – so not somehow deb-faked, or photoshopped images. Who is this (under-age) girl that Biden is touching her chest and kissing her????

 

Truth : President Joe Biden Was Not Groping The Girl!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by right wing activists, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Video Was Taken On October 29, 2022

While many people appear to believe that this incident just happened, the video is almost three months old.

The video was recorded by the Associated Press on Saturday, October 29, 2022, during early voting for the 2022 US midterm elections at a polling center in Delaware.

Fact #2 : Joe Biden Was Placing A Sticker On His Granddaughter

The original video shows President Joe Biden and his 18 year-old granddaughter, Natalie Biden – Beau Biden’s daughter, who was voting for the first time.

After they both cast their votes, they received “I voted stickers”. After Natalie Biden placed hers on her grandfather’s jacket lapel, the President asked her, “Wait, wait, wait, wait, which side do you want on?”

Natalie Biden then indicated she wanted the sticker on the left side of her dress, and President Joe Biden placed it there before giving her a quick kiss on her cheek.

The original video shows President Joe Biden placing the sticker and giving Natalie a kiss in about 2-3 seconds.

Fact #3 : Joe Biden Kissed Natalie Biden On Her Cheek

While some people are claiming that Joe Biden kissed the girl on her lips, that’s not true.

For one thing, reporters mentioned back in October 2022 that President Biden kissed Natalie Biden on her cheek.

The president and Natalie Biden placed “I voted” stickers on one another after casting their votes and the elder Biden kissed his granddaughter on the cheek.

But even if you don’t believe them, take a CLOSER LOOK at the video clip. You can see Natalie Biden turn her head as President Biden leaned in to kiss her… on her left cheek.

Fact #4 : Video Was Edited

The viral photo was edited from a very short clip of the original video, to a much which shows President Joe Biden placing a sticker on his granddaughter’s dress, and giving her a quick kiss on her cheek

It appears to be edited with a segment that loops back and forth to make it look like Joe Biden was fondling the girl’s left breast.

If you look at the white bearded man in the background, you can see him move from left to right and back to the left again. In the original video, he only moves to the left once.

The viral video also used a short clip of the song Simon Says by Pharoahe Monch, which suggestively goes, “Girls, rub on your titties (yeahhhh). Fuck it I said, rub on your titties

Fact #5 : Video Was Apparently Created By Machiavelli Memez

If you look carefully, the video has the watermark of Machiavelli Memez, who posts right wing material on Twitter. The same watermark also adorned the fake photo of President Joe Biden molesting a little girl.

Believe it or not, President Joe Biden was falsely accused of molesting a little girl at a kindergarten just last month, based on a photo with a Machiavelli Memez watermark.

So watch out for any photos or videos with a Machiavelli Memez watermark.

Read more : Was President Joe Biden Caught Molesting A Little Girl?!

Ultimately – the viral video was edited to make it look like President Joe Biden was groping the girl’s left breast.

In reality – he only placed a sticker on his granddaughter’s dress, before giving her a quick peck on her cheek. His fingers were on the sticker the entire time, and did not linger for more than 2-3 seconds.

CJ Harris : Cause of Death Confirmed, Not Vaccine!

The cause of death of former American Idol contestant, CJ Harris, has been confirmed, and is not related to the COVID-19 vaccine!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

Updated @ 2023-01-20 : Added the official cause of death for CJ Harris, and the autopsy that was conducted earlier.
Originally posted @ 2023-01-18

 

Claim : CJ Harris Died From COVID-19 Vaccine SADS!

Right after news broke that CJ Harris suddenly collapsed and died, anti-vaccination activists immediately claimed that the former American Idol contestant and singer was a victim of the COVID-19 vaccine!

How many of these are we going to have before we pull that fucking vaccine off the market and investigate what’s going on and how to prevent this from happening?

American Idol star CJ Harris dead at 31 after suffering ‘apparent heart attack’ Another tragedy. Another #SuddenDeath. 31 year olds should not be having heart attacks. #Vaccine

American Idol’ semifinalist CJ Harris dies suddenly at 31. Sadly, another victim of safe and effective climate change. #Diedsuddenly #SuddenAdultDeathSyndrome #CovidVaccines #vaccines #Myocarditis #heartattack #safeandeffective #mRNA

Recommended : Died Suddenly : Anti-Vaccination Movie Lies Exposed!

 

Truth : CJ Harris Did Not Die From COVID-19 Vaccine SADS!

It’s now tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all celebrity deaths or illnesses on the COVID-19 vaccine.

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : CJ Harris Collapsed At Home

CJ Harris (born Curtis Harris on January 28, 1991) was an American singer who finished in the sixth place on American Idol season 13 six years ago, in 2014.

Since then, he performed with Darius Rucker at the Grand Ole Opry, and released his debut single “In Love” in 2019.

On January 15, 2023, CJ Harris appeared to suffer a heart attack at home that Sunday night. According to a family member, he was taken by an ambulance to the Walker Baptist Medical Center in his hometown of Jasper, Alabama.

Shortly after arriving at the emergency room, CJ Harris was pronounced dead after CPR efforts failed to revive him.

Fact #2 : CJ Harris Died From A Heart Attack

The Walker County Coroner confirmed on Thursday, January 19, that CJ Harris died from a heart attack.

Doctors at the Walker Baptist Medical Center have listed CJ Harris’ official cause of death as a heart attack.

Fact #3 : An Autopsy Was Conducted On CJ Harris

Walker County Coroner Joey Vick said that an autopsy was carried out on CJ Harris, but further tests are needed to determine the official cause of his death.

However, since his death was subsequently confirmed to be a heart attack, the autopsy was no longer required.

Read more : Did Lisa Marie Presley Die Of Vaccine Cardiac Arrest?!

Fact #4 : Unknown If CJ Harris Was Vaccinated Against COVID-19

It is currently unknown if CJ Harris was vaccinated against COVID-19, so it would be wrong for anyone to claim that he died from COVID-19 vaccine side effects.

For all we know – he may not even be vaccinated! The COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in the United States, despite what anti-vaccination activists may claim.

For example, anti-vaccination activists claimed that Kaden Clymer was almost crippled by a 6-foot long vaccine-induced blood clot, but the high school athlete was never vaccinated against COVID-19!

Unless his family reveals his vaccination status, anyone who tells you that CJ Harris was fully-vaccinated and died from the vaccine is likely lying to you.

Fact #6 : Cardiac Arrest Is Common

Anti-vaccination activists falsely claim that young, healthy people do not suddenly collapse from cardiac arrest. The truth is many people do suddenly collapse from sudden cardiac arrest, and most people don’t survive.

The United States alone records over half a million cases of sudden cardiac arrest cases every year – an incidence of about 130 per 100,000 individuals per year.

Many people have undiagnosed heart conditions that may not produce noticeable symptoms in daily life, but could result in sudden cardiac arrest at any time.

And no, COVID-19 vaccines do NOT cause cardiac arrests, no matter what anti-vaccination activists may claim.

Neither can COVID-19 vaccines prevent people from getting cardiac arrests, or dying from them.

Fact #6 : Claims Of Celebrities Injured By COVID-19 Vaccine Proven False

This is yet another example of anti-vaccination activists abusing sudden deaths / injuries to create and propagate FAKE NEWS about the safety and efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines.

So far, claims of sudden deaths / injuries due to the COVID-19 vaccine have been proven false at every instance. Here is the latest dozen of other false sudden death claims!

Will these anti-vaccination activists apologise for lying to you? Nope! They will just move on to the next celebrity tragedy…

Why Pfizer CEO Ignored Questions On Transmission!

A video of Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla ignoring questions on COVID-19 vaccines preventing transmission has gone viral.

Take a look at the viral video, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Viral Video : Pfizer CEO Ignores Questions On Transmission!

A video of Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla ignoring questions on COVID-19 vaccines preventing transmission has gone viral.

Here is a rough transcript of what was said. It’s really long, so feel free to skip to the next section for the facts.

Ezra Levant : Mr. Bourla, can I ask you – when did you know the vaccines did not stop transmission? How long did you know that before saying it publicly?

Albert Bourla : Thank you very much.

Ezra Levant : To that question, I mean, we now know that the vaccines didn’t stop transmission, but why did you keep it secret?

Ezra Levant : You said it was 100% effective, then 90%, then 80%, then 70%, but we now know that the vaccines do not stop transmission. Why do you keep that secret?

Albert Bourla : Have a nice day.

Recommended : Died Suddenly : Anti-Vaccination Movie Lies Exposed!

 

Why Pfizer CEO Ignored Questions On Transmission!

This is yet another example of ANTI-VACCINE PROPAGANDA created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the facts you need to know.

Fact #1 : COVID-19 Vaccines Were Never Meant To Stop Transmission

The COVID-19 vaccines, whether from Pfizer or any other pharmaceutical company, were designed to prevent hospitalisation and death from COVID-19.

Prevention of transmission would have been a nice bonus, but it was never the primary goal of any COVID-19 vaccine. And how do we know that?

Simple – there were only three endpoints in the Phase 3 trials of COVID-19 vaccines:

  • protection against symptomatic infection
  • protection against severe disease
  • protection against death

All vaccines – whether Pfizer or otherwise – were never designed or required to prevent transmission of COVID-19.

That was precisely what all COVID-19 vaccines aimed for, and that was what all Phase 3 trial results show. Here is a table I created from the initial Phase 3 trials of the major vaccines in March 2021:

COVID-19 Vaccine Protection Against
Symptomatic
Infection
Severe
Disease
Death
Pfizer Comirnaty 95.0% 100% 100%
Gamaleya Sputnik V 91.6% 100% 100%
Moderna mRNA-1273 94.1% 100% 100%
AstraZeneca AZD1222 62% ~ 90% 100% 100%
Sinopharm BBIBP-CorV 79% ~ 86% 90% 100%
Sinovac Biotech 50.65% 83.7% 100%
J&J Janssen COVID-19 66.0% 85% 100%
CanSino Biologics 65.7% 90.98% 100%

Fact #2 : Pfizer CEO Did Not Claim COVID-19 Vaccine Prevent Transmission

On April 1, 2021, Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla posted about a small South African trial in which 800 people vaccinated with the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine did not get infected.

Although he could have been much clearer, he did not say that the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine prevents transmission. He later clarified that it only shows that the vaccine produced a “robust neutralising antibody response” to a specific variant.

800 participants enrolled in South Africa with 0 cases of #COVID19 observed in the vaccinated group. Of the cases observed the majority were confirmed to be of the B.1.351 lineage, the prevalent strain in South Africa.

These data support previous results from immunogenicity studies demonstrating a robust neutralizing antibody response to the B.1.351 variant.

Recommended : Does Pfizer CEO aim to cut world population by 50%?

Fact #3 : It Is Quite Impossible To Prevent Transmission Of COVID-19

Anti-vaccination activists are harping on the prevention of transmission, because it’s a red herring – they know that it is quite impossible to prevent the transmission of COVID-19.

The SARS-CoV-2 virus is primarily a respiratory virus that spreads by droplets and aerosols, but it is highly contagious, and can infect people through their eyes and mouths, and even through fomites (contaminated surfaces) – albeit, this is relatively rare.

The point is – vaccines are not force fields that repel the SARS-CoV-2 virus. They are basically training camps that teach our own immune system how to identify the virus, so they can make their own antibodies against it.

Even in a fully-vaccinated person, the antibodies only work after the virus enters the bloodstream. The antibodies cannot block or repel the virus, which is why the vaccine trials looked at preventing “symptomatic infections” and not preventing “infections”.

Similarly, the immune systems of vaccinated people are capable of preventing the virus from causing serious harm, but they can only partially block transmission by preventing the virus from replicating as much as it would normally be capable of.

The immune systems of vaccinated people, unfortunately, cannot do anything about virus particles that get inhaled into the lungs and then exhaled into the environment in respiratory droplets and aerosols.

I should point out that “natural immunity” from a prior COVID-19 infection cannot block or prevent transmission of COVID-19 either. So why should anyone insist that vaccines, whether Pfizer or otherwise, must prevent transmission of COVID-19?

Recommended : Why COVID-19 Vaccine Efficacy Does NOT Matter!

Fact #4 : COVID-19 Vaccines Are Effective

Regardless of what the two men who questioned Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla may claim, the truth is – COVID-19 vaccines have proven to be effective in preventing severe disease and death from COVID-19 infections.

That is how most of the world was able to reopen without COVID-infected patients swamping hospitals and ICUs, as we saw throughout 2020 and early 2021.

Yes, fully-vaccinated people are still getting infected by COVID-19, but they no longer need to be hospitalised, and most of them no longer die from a COVID-19 infection.

Again, COVID-19 vaccines were designed to prevent severe illness and death, not transmission or infection. They have done an excellent job in those aspects.

Fact #5 : COVID-19 Vaccine Efficacy Changes Against Variants

Like the influenza virus, the SARS-CoV-2 virus mutates rapidly – every infected person is literally a virus factory that is capable of producing new variants.

New virus variants may differ enough that the antibodies created by our own immune system may not attach to them properly.

This “immune escape” problem exists for people who obtained “natural immunity” through a COVID-19 infection, as much as those who are fully-vaccinated.

Each new variant is like an army that has learned to adapt to the battlefield, which is why the vaccines’ efficacy appear to “drop” with each variant.

It does not mean the vaccines do not work as advertised. Those vaccines still maintain the same efficacy against the ancestral COVID-19 virus that they were all tested against. It’s just that the antibodies they trigger may be less capable of attaching properly to the newer variants.

Recommended : Was Pfizer CEO Arrested For Fraud In #PfizerGate?

Fact #6 : Protection From Natural Immunity Is Reduced Against Variants Too

Antibodies created by our immune system from a prior COVID-19 infection – the “natural immunity” promoted by anti-vaccination activists, are also less effective against new variants.

That’s why people with natural immunity can and still do get infected again and again with new variants of COVID-19.

That is why it is important to develop new versions of the vaccines to deal with new COVID-19 variants that develop over time.

Sure, you can improve your immunity by repeatedly getting infected by new variants of COVID-19, but why not give your immune system a head start by getting the improved bivalent vaccines that are designed to better handle the Omicron variants?

Did Danielle Mei Cabana Die Of Vaccine Myocarditis?!

Did 6 year-old Danielle Mei Cabana die from myocarditis caused by the COVID-19 vaccine?!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Danielle Mei Cabana Died From Vaccine Myocarditis!

People keep sharing a photo of 6 year-old Danielle Mei Cabana, claiming that she died from myocarditis caused by the COVID-19 vaccine. Here are some examples on social media:

Died Suddenly : One of the most heart breaking 💉💉 stories:

Mel Cabana was 6 years old when she was taken to the hospital with flu symptoms.

She subsequently received two heart procedures and began to breathe on her own, but ultimately #diedsuddenly after suffering a “massive stroke.”

Danielle Mei Cabana, 6, hockey player, diagnosed with myocarditis, passed away after suffering a “massive stroke.” 🥅 🏒 ❤️

Truth : Danielle Mei Cabana Did Not Die From Vaccine Myocarditis!

It’s now a tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all deaths or illnesses on the COVID-19 vaccine.

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Danielle Mei Cabana Had The Flu

Danielle Mei Cabana (born October 3, 2016) was a 6 year old member of the Richmond Raven U7 girls hockey team.

Danielle and her sisters caught the flu at around Remembrance Day on November 11. While her sisters recovered, Danielle could not fight off the infection, and was admitted to the British Columbia Children’s Hospital on Wednesday, November 23, 2022.

At the hospital, Danielle Cabana’s condition worsened, and she was transferred to the ICU, where she was diagnosed with myocarditis caused by the flu.

To be clear – Danielle Mei Cabana did not get her myocarditis from the COVID-19 vaccine.

Fact #2 : Danielle Mei Cabana Died From A Stroke

According to her father, Denis Cabana, Danielle was given medicine to treat the myocarditis, but her heart stopped that evening.

Danielle Mei Cabana underwent two heart procedures over the next two days, and started to breathe on her own on Saturday, November 26, 2022. Unfortunately, she suffered a “massive stroke” later that day, and died from it.

Her father, Denis Cabana posted about her demise on Instagram (now private):

We went back to the room where the doctors unplugged the machine and we said our goodbyes. Dani held on for another 10 minutes or so before finally resting.

While we may not be able to see or touch her again, her spirit and memories will live forever within her parents and sisters. We will honor her life and make sure she has a fulfilling life through our eyes.

A GoFundMe was set up for her family, and her funeral service would be held tomorrow, January 20, 2023.

Recommended : Did Rod Stewart’s Son Get Heart Attack From Vaccine?!

Fact #3 : Unknown If Danielle Mei Cabana Was Vaccinated

It is currently unknown if Danielle Mei Cabana was vaccinated against COVID-19, because her vaccination status was never publicly revealed.

For all we know – she may not even be vaccinated! The COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in Canada, despite what anti-vaccination activists may claim.

Fact Check : Babo The Amazing Blind Figure Skater!

Does a viral dance video show Babo, a blind figure skater who lost his eyesight and mother in a fire many years ago?!

Take a look at the viral video, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Babo Becomes A Figure Skater After Becoming Blind!

A video has gone viral on WhatsApp, and social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook, showing a pair of male and female dancers, together with these descriptions:

👆This is not one of the ice skating videos.

It’s one of the most amazing performance in the history of skating, which brought tears to the 10,000 spectators present.

Babo, the male dancer, has been blind since childhood. In a fire accident, his mother held him tightly in her arms and jumped from the 7th floor. His mother died, the little Babo became blind due to hemorrhage in his eyes and survived multiple bone fracture.

His mother was an ice skater and Babo inherited that gene. Although he couldn’t see anything, he still pursued his passion enthusiastically.

Here he is doing the famous tango “La Cumparsita” with his partner at the World Figure Skating Championships in Helsinki!👆

His ears could measure the surrounding sound and distance like a bat. His female dancing partner is equally amazing. She danced with him so elegantly giving the sense of orientation and movements to her partner as if through telepathy so that even the most difficult synchronised movements kept perfect rhythm.👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

 

Truth : That Is Not Babo, And He Is Not A Blind Figure Skater!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS circulating on WhatsApp and social media platforms, and here are there reasons why, and what we know about the video…

Fact #1 : Video Was Recorded In 2017

While many people think that this is a recent video, the video was actually recorded at the 2017 International Skating Union (ISU) World Figure Skating Championship, that was held in Helsinki, Finland.

The original video is very long – lasting almost 4 hours. The video clip that went viral on WhatsApp and social media, was edited from this video, starting at the 02:03:28 mark.

Fact #2 : Video Shows Russian Ice Dancers

The video does not show a blind American dancer called Babo, and his female partner. It shows Russian ice dancers Ivan Bukin, and Alexandra Stepanova.

While Ivan Bukin (born Ivan Andreyevich Bukin on 16 September 1993) closed his eyes for a moment before they started skating, he is not blind.

Just in case you are wondering – Alexandra Stepanova (born Alexandra Nikolayevna Stepanova on 19 August 1995) is also not blind.

Fact #3 : Ivan Bukin’s Mother Did Not Die In A Fire

Ivan Bukin is the son of 1988 Olympic ice dancing champion Andrei Bukin, and ice dancer Elena Vasiuk.

Elena Vasiuk did not die in a fire when Ivan Bukin was a child. No one jumped from the 7th floor of any building in a fire, at least not in his family!

In July 2018, Bukin mentioned that both of his parents came to watch him dance to a new Tango Romantica dance routine. So we know that his parents are still alive and well in 2018.

Malaysia Transport Minister Anthony Loke just announced a lorry ban, and that seven major offences will be non-compoundable this Chinese New Year!

 

CNY 2023 : Traffic Offenders Will Be Sent To Court!

On Wednesday, 17 January 2023, the Transport Minister of Malaysia, Anthony Loke, announced that seven traffic offences will be non-compoundable throughout the Chinese New Year festive season.

Motorists who commit these seven offences will no longer be allowed to just pay a fine, but will instead be referred to the courts.

  • Cutting queue
  • Overtaking on double lines
  • Running the red light
  • Driving over the speed limit
  • Using mobile phones while driving
  • Not wearing a seat belt or helmet
  • Driving on the emergency lane

The seven major traffic offenses are cutting queue, overtaking on double lines, disobeying the red light signal, driving over the speed limit, use of mobile phones while driving, not wearing a seat belt or helmet and driving on the emergency lane.

There will be no compound issues for these offences. Offenders will be referred to court.

To ensure stricter enforcement this year, about 2,000 JPJ enforcement officers will be deployed this Chinese New Year to reduce accidents and deaths.

CNY 2023 : Lorries + Heavy Vehicles Banned!

  • two days from January 20 to 21
  • two days from January 24 to 25

This prohibition is intended to avoid the risk of road accidents due to mixed traffic flow between heavy vehicles and light vehicles on the road, highways, apart from avoiding traffic jams.

Is There A RM300 Seat Belt Fine On PLUS Highway?!

Is it true that rear passengers caught not wearing a seat belt on the PLUS North-South Expressway will receive a RM300 fine?

Find out what’s going on, and what the FACTS really are!

 

Claim : RM300 Seat Belt Fine By Police On PLUS Highway!

These viral messages have been circulating on SMS, WhatsApp and Facebook since early January 2021, but keep getting reposted every holiday season.

🙏. INFORMATION🙏

The North-South Expressway PLUS starts today, and police officers will check every day in the evening~ The passengers in the back seat with no seat belt, will be fined RM300 per person, RM600 for two people.

👉 Please do update friends & family members to be alert & pay attention in this matter.
👉 Just now a lot of cars have been issued with fines.
👉 Please notify everyone going out to remember to wear a seat belt at the back seat.

Just received and send.

南北高速 PLUS 今天开工,警察每天晚上都会检查~后排座位上的乘客没有系安全带,将被罚款。每人 300 令吉,两个人 RM600“.

👉请及时通知亲朋好友,提醒他们注意此事。
👉刚才很多车都被罚款了。
👉请通知所有外出的旅客在后座系好安全带。

The North-South Expressway PLUS starting today, PDRM will check vehicles~ Passengers in the rear seats who are not wearing seat belts will be fined. RM300 per person, RM600 for two persons.

 

The Truth : There Is No RM300 Seat Belt Fine

The truth is there is no RM300 fine for rear passengers who are caught not wearing a seat belt.

Fact #1 : JSPT Refuted RM300 Seat Belt Fine Claim

The Bukit Aman Traffic Investigation and Enforcement Department (JSPT) refuted the claim that they would be checking cars travelling on the PLUS North-South Expressway in the evenings, and issuing a RM300 fine for those caught not wearing a seat belt at the back.

The JSPT Deputy Director SAC Datuk Mohd Nadzri Hussain said, “We at JSPT would like to advise all road users to continue complying with the laws and regulations to ensure the safety of every road user.

In addition, we would also like to urge the public to stop spreading fake information and to always ensure the validity of any viral information shared on social media sites.

Fact #2 : Rear Seat Belt Mandatory Since 1 January 2009

It has been mandatory in Malaysia to wear a seat belt while seated in the back seat of a vehicle since 1 January 2009, except for :

  • old vehicles registered before 1 January 1995
  • vehicles registered on or after 1 January 1995, but lack rear anchorage points
  • vehicles that seat more than 8 passengers (not including driver)
  • good vehicles with carrying load of more than 3.5 tonnes

Fact #3 : Seat Belt Fine Is Way More Than RM300

Any driver or passengers, whether seated in the front or rear, caught not wearing a seat belt will be subject to :

  • a fine of up to RM 2,000, and / or
  • a prison sentence of up to 1 year

As you can see – that’s a LOT higher than the RM300 fine in the viral messages.

Fact #4 : RM300 Seat Belt Fine “Offer” Ended In 2009

The RM300 seat belt fine was actually a discounted offer for a 6-month introductory period when the seat belt law came into effect.

From 1 January until 30 June 2009 – the police and JPJ only issued a reduced RM300 fine to those who were caught no wearing a seat belt.

That “introductory fine” had long expired, so drivers are now subject to the much higher penalties.
