Chris Tucker : Latest Celeb Killed In Death Hoax!

Chris Tucker Is Latest Celeb Killed In Death Hoax!

Find out why Chris Tucker went viral on social media, and became the latest celebrity to get killed in a death hoax!

 

Claim : Chris Tucker Is Dead / Died On The Way To The Hospital!

Chris Tucker went viral on social media over the weekend, after people started posting that he just died on the way to the hospital.

It apparently started when a Facebook page called R.I.P. Chris Tucker was created on Friday, September 30, 2022, harvesting over a million page likes with this viral message:

At about 11 a.m. ET on Friday (September 30, 2022), our beloved actor Chris Tucker passed away. Chris Tucker was born on August 31, 1972 in Atlanta. He will be missed but not forgotten. Please show your sympathy and condolences by commenting on and liking this page.

In addition, YouTube creators created videos claiming that the 5th Element and Rush Hour star just died on the way to the hospital.

Truth : Chris Tucker Is Not Dead, He’s Very Much Alive!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS on Facebook and YouTube that was created to harvest Likes and video views, and here are there reasons why…

Fact #1 : No Announcement By His Agent

Chris Tucker signed with ICM Partners in April 2021, to represent him in all areas. If he died, ICM Partners would definitely issue a public statement.

Despite claims that they issued a statement on 1 October 2022, there was no such statement. Neither did his long-time manager Tracy Kramer issue any statement about his death.

Fact #2 : Jamia Tucker Did Not Mention His Death

If Chris Tucker really died, you would have expected his family members to post about it.

His niece, singer Jamia Tucker, for example shared an audition for THE WIZ, but never mentioned that her uncle died.

Fact #3 : Chris Tucker Is Currently Filming + Touring

Chris Tucker joined the cast of an upcoming movie about Nike’s pursuit of Michael Jordan for his iconic shoe deal sometime in June 2022.

In addition, he is also touring the United States for live stand-up comedy shows :

  • October 8 : Chandler, Arizona
  • October 15 : Valley Center, California
  • November 11 : Robinsonville, Mississippi
  • November 12 : Lake Charles, Louisiana

If he had actually died, the movie production would have to stop, and his live shows would have to be cancelled, with producers for both efforts issuing their own press releases.

Yet neither have happened – production of the Nike movie appears to continue as normal, and there has been no cancellation of any of Chris Tucker’s live shows.

Fact #3 : No Mention In Mainstream Media

The mainstream media has prepared obituaries for celebrities, and would be amongst the first to break the story.

Yet, not a single newspaper or news network like CNN / BBC, not even celebrity blogs like TMZ, broke the story that Chris Tucker died?

That’s because it never happened – Chris Tucker is very much still alive, and well.

Fact #4 : Chris Tucker Death Videos Offer No Evidence

The videos purportedly showing Chris Tucker dead, or bring driven to the hospital, are all fake.

They do not show him dying or dead. They also offer no evidence that he is actually dead.

Their creators just made up the story to generate views, for the ad money.

Fact #5 : This Is Just Another Example Of Celebrity Fake News

This is yet another example of fake news created by rumour and fake news blogs to drive traffic and increase page views for ad money. Here are examples of other celebrity fake news that we debunked earlier:

Don’t fall for the fake news / fake videos created by people whose only motivation is to make money from your views and clicks.

Did Netflix Star David Arnold Die From Vaccine SADS?!

Did comedian and Netflix star David Arnold die from Sudden Adult Death Syndrome caused by the COVID-19 vaccine?!

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

 

Claim : David Arnold Died From Vaccine SADS!

Right after news broke that David Arnold died suddenly, people started claiming that the comedian and Netflix star died from Sudden Adult Death Syndrome caused by the COVID-19 vaccine!

Here is a selection of social media posts accompanying links or articles on his death:

Hmmm passed away from “Natural Causes”@ 54???The vaxxx claims another victim.

David Arnold, another victim of the deadly covid vaccine?

Saw the David Arnold comedy special on @netflix about 3 months ago.

He made a joke about you allow a dog that can lick their own private parts kiss you on your mouth but you won’t take the covid injection

Unknown causes??? Prayers for his family

 

Truth : David Arnold Did NOT Die From Vaccine SADS!

It’s becoming a 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… and the current facts that we know so far.

Fact #1 : David Arnold Died From Natural Causes

David Arnold died on Wednesday, 7 September 2022, and his family released a statement on the same day, stating clearly that he died of natural causes.

It is with great sadness that we confirm the untimely passing of our husband, father, brother and friend, David A. Arnold.

David passed away peacefully today in his home and doctors have ruled the cause of death due to natural causes.

Please keep our family in prayer and respect our privacy at this time as we are all shocked and devastated by this loss.

His family pointedly did not mention the COVID-19 vaccine as a cause of death.

Is there even any evidence that David Arnold’s death was related in any way to vaccines? No. Anti-vaccination activists just made up that claim.

Fact #2 : Unknown If David Arnold Was Vaccinated

It is currently unknown if David Arnold 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.

Recommended : Did Charlbi Dean Kriek Die From Vaccine SADS?!

Fact #3 : Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Hours / Days

Even if David Arnold was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19, he would have received all of his doses many months ago.

He cannot possibly have died 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 #4 : COVID-19 Vaccines Do NOT Cause SADS

After billions of doses have been administered, there is still no evidence that COVID-19 vaccines cause SADS.

In fact, this is a rather ludicrous claim as SADS was first documented in 1977 – long before COVID-19 vaccines were invented!

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.

Despite what anti-vaccination activists may tell you – SADS is not a new vaccine-related syndrome.

SADS is usually caused by an abnormal heart rhythm that leads to a cardiac arrest. That’s why it can be prevented by implanting a cardioverter-defribillator.

The UK Office for National Statistics data on Sudden Adult Deaths from 2016 to 2020 also showed NO INCREASE in SADS cases, demonstrating that COVID-19 vaccines did not increase the prevalence of SADS.

Years Sudden Adult Death
Syndrome Cases
2016 116
2017 63
2018 53
2019 87
2020 115

Fact #5 : Deaths / Injuries From COVID-19 Vaccines Can Be Proven

Despite anti-vaccination activists chalking up celebrity deaths to the vaccine; death or injury from rare vaccine adverse effects like anaphylaxis, myocarditis and VITT can be proven.

Anaphylaxis (severe allergic reaction) from Pfizer or Moderna mRNA vaccines happens within minutes. That’s why people are asked to wait for 15-30 minutes after getting the vaccine. People who get an anaphylactic shock will require an epinephrine shot to quickly relieve it.

Vaccine-induced myocarditis has distinct histopathology findings that are different from typical myocarditis, so a pathologist will be able to determine if the myocarditis was caused by the vaccines or otherwise.

Vaccine-induced Thrombotic Thrombocytopenia (VITT) is very specific to the AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson vaccines. It is also easily differentiated by its unique combination of blood clots in large veins of the brains, abdomen and lungs, together with low platelet counts leading to bleeding tendencies.

Fact #6 : COVID-19 Vaccines Proven Safe + Effective

COVID-19 vaccines underwent massive clinical trials, and were only approved after they were proven to be safe and effective.

In addition, they were constantly monitored after they received their approvals, which picked up rare side effects after they were administered to billions of people.

Anti-vaccination activists have often claimed that those who received the vaccine would die. Yet, the opposite was true – the vaccines are not only safe, they are effective in protecting people from getting hospitalised or dying from COVID-19.

Even prominent antivaxxer Steve Kirsch is healthy and well, despite being fully-vaccinated against COVID-19!

Fact #7 : Claims Of Celebrities Injured By COVID-19 Vaccine Proven False

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

So far, claims of celebrity 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 celebrity tragedy…

Nat Geo Wrongly Puts Gardens by the Bay In Malaysia!

National Geographic just made a hilarious faux pas, wrongly putting Gardens by the Bay in Malaysia!

Take a look at the photo that just went viral, and the hilarious responses!

 

Nat Geo : Here Is Gardens by the Bay in Singapore, Malaysia!

On 27 August 2022, National Geographic UK went viral after posting a photo of the beautiful Gardens by the Bay, with this description :

From the Archive: A family from India walks through the Gardens by the Bay in Singapore, Malaysia.

 

Gardens by the Bay Is In Singapore, Not Malaysia!

The photo by Lucas Foglia quickly went viral, not because it was beautiful – it was, but because National Geographic UK wrongly claimed that Gardens by the Bay is in Singapore, Malaysia!

Gardens by the Bay is located in Singapore, and not Malaysia. More importantly – Singapore and Malaysia are two separate countries.

Just in case Nat Geo UK editors are confused, Singapore used to be part of Malaysia, until it separated on 9 August 1965. Here is a bit of historical evidence of that sad day…

Many Singaporean and Malaysian netizens quickly ribbed Nat Geo UK for fun. Here is a selection of both serious and funny responses to National Geographic UK’s faux pas.

Tourism Malaysia : Dear Sir/Madam, that is Singapore. This is Malaysia

GSC : Also from the Archive: An IMAX theatre built with Vibranium in Wakanda, Johor Bahru.

Ahmad Nazir Mohd Azmi : Just come back from Eiffel Tower, UK

MGAG : Avengers Tower, New York City, Malaysia

Justin Jozy Oh : From the Archive: A beautiful view of the Big Ben in New York, UK.

Baxter Oh : From archive : A beautiful view at Kuala Lumpur , Malaysia, People’s Republic of China

Zhen Feng Yap : From the Archive: A beautiful view of the Cat statue overlooking the city in Wakanda, State of Sarawak, Malaysia, Democratic Republic of Congo, Africa.

Jak Knight : Cause Of Death Was Suicide, Not Vaccine!

The cause of death for Jak Knight has been confirmed to be suicide, not the COVID-19 vaccine!

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

 

Antivaxxers : Vaccine Was Cause Of Death For Jak Knight!

Since the news broke that young and rising comedian Jak Knight passed away unexpectedly at just 28 years of age, anti-vaccination activists started claiming that he died from COVID-19 vaccine side effects.

Many insisted that he is “yet another” case of Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS) caused by getting vaccinated against COVID-19.

Question? When did Jak Knight get the #WuhanFlyingRatFlu #SuddenAdultDeathSyndrome vaccine? 🤔

R.I.P Jak Knight he shouldn’t have trusted the vaccine

Another one bites the vax?! Holy shit. RIP Jak Knight.

Jak Knight, stand-up comedian and writer, dead at 28 – Fox News IS IT JUST ME??? But people of all ages are dying so suddenly. I know that is the circle of life !!!! BUT SINCE THE JAB PEOPLE ARE DROPPING LIKE FLYS

Jak Knight : Cause Of Death Was Suicide, Not Vaccine!

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

But yet again, they have been proven wrong, and we know this for a fact because Jak Knight was confirmed to have committed suicide.

Jak Knight was found dead on a Los Angeles embankment on Thursday, July 14, 2022. His body was then taken for an autopsy by the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner.

According to a copy of the autopsy report obtained by People on Monday (July 18, 2022), the coroner ruled that the cause of death for Jak Knight was suicide by a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

So we have definitive proof that Jak Knight did not die from COVID-19 vaccination, but is yet another sad example of suicide by gun.

Let this autopsy report be the last word on Jak Knight’s cause of death. He died from suicide, not the COVID-19 vaccine.

He now joins a long list of celebrities whose deaths / injuries have been falsely blamed on the COVID-19 vaccines.

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

Did Jak Knight Die From Vaccine Side Effects?!

Did stand-up comedian Jak Knight die from COVID-19 vaccine side effects at just 28 years of age?!

Truth : Jak Knight Did NOT Die From COVID-19 Side Effects!

It’s becoming a tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all celebrity deaths or injuries 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… and the current facts that we know so far.

Fact #1 : Jak Knight Died At Home

First, let us establish what is known so far about Jak Knight’s death, which isn’t much.

  • He died on Thursday night, July 14, 2022
  • He was 28 years old when he died
  • He was found on a Los Angeles embankment.

His death was confirmed by a representative for Knight’s family :

Knight’s loved ones ask that their privacy please be respected during this extremely difficult time.

Fact #2 : Jak Knight’s Cause Of Death Was Suicide

Jak Knight died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, that was ruled as a suicide by the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner.

So we know for sure that he didn’t die from COVID-19 side effects, or died in his sleep as a case of Sudden Adult Death Syndrome, as alleged by anti-vaccination activists.

Read more : Jak Knight – Cause Of Death Was Suicide, Not Vaccine!

Fact #3 : Unknown If Jak Knight Was Even Vaccinated

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

One “celebrity blog” that often posts unverified rumours claimed that “Jak Knight was vaccinated and during the times of the vaccination exercise, he was a strong advocate for people to take the vaccine.without offering any evidence.

I personally could find not a single instance of Jak Knight ever talking about COVID-19 vaccination.

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.

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

Even if Jak Knight was vaccinated against COVID-19, he would have received all of his doses months ago.

He cannot possibly have died 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 : Deaths / Injuries From COVID-19 Vaccines Can Be Proven

Despite anti-vaccination activists chalking up celebrity deaths to the vaccine; death or injury from rare vaccine adverse effects like anaphylaxis, myocarditis and VITT can be proven.

Anaphylaxis (severe allergic reaction) from Pfizer or Moderna mRNA vaccines happens within minutes. That’s why people are asked to wait for 15-30 minutes after getting the vaccine. People who get an anaphylactic shock will require an epinephrine shot to quickly relieve it.

Vaccine-induced myocarditis has distinct histopathology findings that are different from typical myocarditis, so a pathologist will be able to determine if the myocarditis was caused by the vaccines or otherwise.

Vaccine-induced Thrombotic Thrombocytopenia (VITT) is very specific to the AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson vaccines. It is also easily differentiated by its unique combination of blood clots in large veins of the brains, abdomen and lungs, together with low platelet counts leading to bleeding tendencies.

Fact #6 : COVID-19 Vaccines Proven Safe + Effective

COVID-19 vaccines underwent massive clinical trials, and were only approved after they were proven to be safe and effective.

In addition, they were constantly monitored after they received their approvals, which picked up rare side effects after they were administered to billions of people.

Anti-vaccination activists have often claimed that those who received the vaccine would die. Yet, the opposite was true – the vaccines are not only safe, they are effective in protecting people from getting hospitalised or dying from COVID-19.

Even prominent antivaxxer Steve Kirsch is healthy and well, despite being fully-vaccinated against COVID-19!

Fact #7 : Claims Of Celebrities Dying From COVID-19 Vaccine Proven False

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

Is This Zelenskyy Before He Became President Of Ukraine?!

Take a look at the viral video of Volodymyr Zelenskyy before he became President of Ukraine, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : This Is Zelenskyy Before He Became President Of Ukraine!

People are sharing a video allegedly of Volodymyr Zelenskyy performing on stage, before he became President of Ukraine.

The video has the overlay “The comedian before he became the Ukrainian president“, and showed him ogling the breasts of several women, while he sang.

 

Truth : This Is Not President Of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelenskyy!

Ever since Russia invaded Ukraine, social media and WhatsApp groups have been inundated with fake news and videos involving those two countries.

This is yet another example of pro-Russia and anti-Ukraine fake news that people are intentionally / ignorantly sharing, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : He Is Vasyl Humenyuk, Not Volodymyr Zelenskyy

When I first saw the video, I could immediately see that the man was not Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

Identifying the man though took some effort, but I was finally able to identify him as Vasyl Humenyuk (Facebook page).

Fact #2 : Vasyl Humenyuk Is Like Volodymyr Zelenskyy, But Not Him

Vasyl Humenyuk is a Ukrainian comedian and politician like Volodymyr Zelenskyy. In fact, he ran for the Ukrainian Parliamentary elections under the Zelenskyy’s Servant of the People party, but lost.

He was later appointed to head the Yarmolynets District State Administration by Zelenskyy in February 2020.

Except for the fact that they are white males, they don’t really look alike… but just in case, here’s a comparison of the two man.

Fact #3 : It Was A Satirical Comedy Song

Vasyl Humenyuk is a member of the Vinnytsia team in the comedy show, League of Laughter.

The video was a clip of him singing his signature song, “Maiden’s Eyes” in the 2017 League of Laughter.

The song satirises men’s obsession with breasts, calling them “maiden’s eyes” which are what men should really be looking at.

Please watch out for the surge of pro-Russia and anti-Ukraine propaganda like this video.

Who Erected This NSFW Slide At A Children’s Playground?!

Who erected a NSFW slide at a children’s playground in Vancouver, Canada?

Take a look at that cheeky slide, and find out what’s really going on!

 

Who Erected This NSFW Slide At A Children’s Playground?!

The Internet is abuzz with a picture of a NSFW slide apparently being installed at a children’s playground in Vancouver, Canada!

People are either outraged or amused because the red slide, which resembles a penis entering a vagina, was erected in a children’s playground!

Can’t quite put my finger on it but there is something strange about this new slide at a local park 

I have questions for the designer 

If this is a public park, questions as well as the public officials who approved the design.

Does the kid get a cigarette afterwards? asking for a friend

Ok, this WOKE stuff is go too far. There is a Supervisor in this town that needs to be fired, right now. That design was approved by upper management.

What perv authorized this?

..what is wrong with you people…if this is legit get a parents committee together and have it removed

 

Apparently, NSFW Slide Is A Seth Rogen Movie Prop!

After a quick bit of sleuthing, we found out that this NSFW slide is apparently a prop for an R-rated comedy that’s being filmed in Vancouver!

Here is what we know so far….

Fact #1 : It Was Erected In Maple Ridge, British Columbia

The red slide was erected in a children’s playground in Fletcher Park, Maple Ridge, which is just outside of Vancouver.

Fact #2 : It Was A Prop For The Movie, JFC

The slide is apparently a prop for an unnamed R-rated comedy movie called JFC, which is short for Joy F*ck Club.

Fact #3 : It Is A Real Slide

Some Internet sleuths “claim” that the photo was edited, so it has to be said – this slide is REAL. It was NOT Photoshopped.

Fact #4 : It Has Already Been Removed

This prop was (obviously) erected temporarily for filming and would be removed by the 5 November 2021, which is when the British Columbia shooting is scheduled to end.

However, it appears that someone (tremby) went to check it out, and found it gone. So it was likely placed over the original metal slide for the day of the shooting and then removed.

Fact #5 : JFC Is A Seth Rogen Produced Movie

JFC is about four Asian-American women who are travelling across Asia in search of their birth mothers, and features Ashley Park, Sherry Cola, Stephanie Hsu and Sabrina Wu in those roles.

The movie is being produced by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, and directed by Adele Lim (who co-wrote Crazy Rich Asians) in her directorial debut.

We’re fully leaning into a side of Asian-ness the world doesn’t usually get to see… the messy, R-rated, thirsty AF side. – Adele Lim

iflix Global Director of Original Commissioning, Mark Francis commented: “Our first original production, Oi! Jaga Mulut (“watch your mouth”) underlines iflix’s ambition to lead an entertainment revolution in emerging markets. Stand-up is still very young in this part of the world, but it’s a great way to localise our content offering because we’re doing it through the unique voices of local talent who want to push the envelope, too.”

“We realise not everybody gets to go to comedy clubs, so with this show we’re putting that opportunity directly in your hands,” Francis added. “We want to grow appreciation for stand-up and establish iflix as new home for the region’s most talented comics.”

iflix has additionally commissioned the comedy series in both Philippines and Indonesia; Huy! Bibig Mo (Philippines) and Oi! Jaga Lambe (Indonesia), will be hosted by Ramon Bautista and Ananda Omesh, respectively.

“Fresh Off The Boat” Now Available On iflix

KUALA LUMPUR, 6 April 2016Meet the Huangs, TV’s funniest new family with the biggest American dream have moved to iflix. Catch every hilarious moment with the Huangs as they try to assimilate into suburban America, with all 13-episodes of the first season of Fresh Off The Boat now available on iflix Malaysia.

 

Fresh Off The Boat

It’s 1995 and 12-year-old hip hop-loving Eddie has just moved with his family from Chinatown in Washington D.C. to suburban Orlando, Florida. They quickly discover things are very different there. Orlando doesn’t even have a Chinatown… unless you count the Huang house.

Eddie’s dad, Louis has dragged the family to the ‘burbs to pursue his version of the American dream, opening Cattleman’s Ranch Steakhouse, a struggling western-themed restaurant. Eddie’s mom, Jessica has agreed to the move, but she finds Orlando a strange place – from the rollerblading stay-at-home moms, to the hospital-like grocery stores, and the fact that the humidity has ruined her hair.

Meanwhile, Eddie is just trying to figure out his place in this new world, which is proving extremely difficult. Like one of his idols, The Notorious B.I.G, Eddie’s a guy with mad dreams – first, get a seat at the table. Second, meet Shaq. Third, change the game (possibly with the help of Shaq). It’s a classic immigrant story, seen through the eyes of a first-generation Asian American kid.

Inspired by the memoirs of celebrity chef Eddie Huang, Fresh Off The Boat stars Randall Park as Louis, Constance Wu as Jessica, Hudson Yang as Eddie, Forrest Wheeler as Emery and Ian Chen as Evan. Eddie Huang provides the voice-over narration.

Fresh Off The Boat joins iflix’s fantastic comedic line up from every season of all time classics including Friends, The Fresh Prince of Bel Air and How I Met Your Mother, to award winning hits and comedy favourites including Modern Family, Big Bang Theory, New Girl, Two and a Half Men, IT Crowd, Mom and many, many more.
