Tiananmen Square Day (June 4, every year) memorializes the patriotic martyrs in China who were slain by tanks and by other means beginning on June 4, 1989, in Beijing and in other cities in China.

Recall Jeff Widener’s (Associated Press) astounding image of Tank Man, blocking a column of Type 59 tanks heading east on Beijing‘s Chang’an Boulevard (Avenue of Eternal Peace) near Tiananmen Square.

Nowadays Tiananmen Square Day also salutes

– those who have been killed or imprisoned for defending freedom in Hong Kong,

– and those who have been killed or imprisoned for defending freedom in Venezuela,

– and those who have been killed or imprisoned for defending freedom in Iran,

– and those who have been killed or imprisoned for defending freedom in Syria,

– and those who have been killed or imprisoned for defending freedom in Egypt,

– and at so many other times and places.

To see more about Tiananmen Square Day, and to see how to honor both past and present martyrs for freedom, see here, and here, and here, and here.

 

Good News for Some Race Horses

When horses lie down to sleep, others in the herd remain standing, awake or in a light doze, keeping watch. Horses on Bianditz mountain, in Navarre, Spain. Behind them Aiako mountains can be seen. Photo by Mikel Ortega from Errenteria, Basque Country, Spain, retouched by Richard Bartz. 8 October 2006.

The usual life-trajectory of a race horse is good treatment followed by horror.

From babyhood until it is no longer considered a contender, the horse is treated as
valued, almost as a pet.

The horse is coddled, and receives affection and care. Horses are sensitive and
emotional, so they are fully aware of the affection and care.

Then, all of a sudden, and for no reason that the horse can discern, affection is replaced
by harshness, and the horse is sent to slaughter, like a person being sent to a
concentration camp.

This practice is a betrayal – a betrayal of the trust of a very emotional, sensitive animal.

Recently, for a few lucky race horses, the horrific ending has been edited out. This good
news is told in an article “When the Race is Over”, by Annie Marie Musselman, with
photos by Jay Hovdey, in the May 2020 issue of Smithsonian magazine.

The title of this post says ‘some’ race horses, because not all middle-aged race horses
are lucky enough to go to the refuge described in the article. Many of the other race
horses are slaughtered.

An analogous betrayal happens to
– a cow who has stopped having calves and giving milk;
– a bull who is sent into a bull-fighting ring.

It is likely that an analogous betrayal occurs for many sled dogs during Iditerod, where
many of the dogs who become too exhausted to keep up the pace are killed en route.

By the way, what happened to all of the puppies, kittens, rabbits and other animals in pet stores, and at breeders, while the new corona virus kept pet stores closed for over a month?

Those last four topics will be discussed further in future posts.

But on a more cheerful note, there are good people who recognize the feelings of animals.

Here is a ring-tailed lemur in Africa who likes having people scratch its back, and who instinctively knows how to tell them to keep scratching.

Here is a young deer who accidentally discovered that it loves belly rubs, and is quite unwilling to let people stop giving them.  (You probably have not previously heard a deer’s voice.)

Here is a lost newborn fawn who is rescued by a little girl.

Potential ways of killing the corona virus

March 31, 2020 at 2:34 pm | Posted in Health and safety, Practical tips | 2 Comments
Tags: , , , ,

The diameter of a corona virus is about 120 nanometers.

(See this Wikipedia article, which bases this value of the diameter upon the very instructive article, Fehr AR, Perlman S (2015), “Coronaviruses: An Overview of Their Replication and Pathogenesis; Section 2 Genomic Organization”, in Maier HJ, Bickerton E, Britton P (eds.), Methods in Molecular Biology, Springer. 1282: 1–23. The freely-down-loadable pre-publication version of the article by Fehr and Perlman is available here.)

A nanometer is a billionth of a meter, and a meter is slightly larger than a yard.

It might aid visualization to note that a nanometer is about ten times the diameter of a hydrogen atom in that atom’s ground state. So 120 nanometers is about the length covered by 1200 hydrogen atoms, if there were no spaces between the electron “clouds” of the atoms.

Light having a vacuum wavelength of 120 nanometers would be deep in the ultraviolet portion of the electromagnetic spectrum. So ultraviolet light of twice that wavelength or shorter should efficiently heat and destroy exposed virus particles (“virions”). This could be used to disinfect air and exposed surfaces. Of course, the eyes and skin of humans and other animals would have to be protected from this type of ultraviolet light.

What about corona viruses hidden within the body?

The speed of sound in soft tissue is roughly 1540 meters per second. (The exact value varies with the type of the tissue.) A wavelength of 120 nanometers would correspond to an acoustic frequency of 1540/(120 x 10-9) = 12.83 GHz. Doubling the wavelength would halve the frequency to 6.42 GHz. That is near the upper range of commercially available ultrasonic devices (see here). Ultrasound of that frequency or higher should efficiently heat and destroy virions hidden within the body. Frequencies ten times that, or more, would stress the tall spike structural glyco-proteins that stud the virion’s envelope.

These weapons could be used against all types of corona viruses: that is, against SARS, MERS, SARS COV-2, most non-rhinovirus forms of the common cold, and against corona virus types yet to emerge.

Bunion and Hammer Toe

Bunion and Hammer Toe, thepoliblog.WordPress.com

                                  Bunion and Hammer Toe, thepoliblog.WordPress.com

Some bunions cause a hammer toe. The photo above shows a bunion bulging toward the left. The bunion causes the big toe to veer in the opposite direction, forcing the next toe to climb on top of the big toe, forming a hammer toe.

When walking, the hammer toe can cause intense pain in the ball of the affected foot.

By accident, I came upon a simple fix: Each morning, before putting a shoe on the affected foot, push the hammer toe to its proper undeformed position. Whether or not the toe stays there, that temporary relocation will relieve much of the stress on the foot, and you will be able to walk all day as if there were no hammer toe.

The easiest way to do this is use the heel of the other foot to gently press down the hammer toe.

The single-toe and multi-toe foam restraints that are sold commercially did not work as well as this simple expedient.

Michelle Obama’s ‘Becoming’

Official portrait of First Lady Michelle Obama in the Green Room of the White House, 12 February 2013, Official White House Photo by Chuck Kennedy

We read Michelle Obama’s autobiography aloud in the evenings, and it has become one of our favorite books.

It is illuminating, fascinating, and heart-warming.

Michelle Obama’s Becoming is full of insights and surprises. It changes the way you look at people – at all people. It is utterly clear and is beautifully written, its topics are very important, and it deserves to be a classic.

Not many books make you care deeply about the author’s family. This one does.

Her father, Fraser Robinson III, her mother, Marian Shields Robinson, and her brother, Craig Robinson – each was warm, principled, and an independent and wonderfully clear-sighted thinker.

When her heroic father struggles to continue to do as much as possible despite the worsening ravages of Cushing’s Syndrome and Multiple Sclerosis, you can’t help rooting for him every step of the way. His story is unforgettable.

Becoming has deservedly remained on the non-fiction best-sellers list for many months.

Prevent Abuse by the Senate Majority Leader

Mitch McConnell abuses his position as the Majority Leader of the Senate.

Mitch McConnell has declared himself to be the Senate’s Grim Reaper, a position not forseen in the Constitution.

He has declared that the Senate shall not even consider any bill that the President wouldn’t sign, thereby rendering empty the Constitution’s provision for Congress to overturn a Presidential veto – a central ingredient of the Constitution’s mandating of checks and balances, including Comgressional oversight of the Executive.

McConnell has unilaterally declared that no nomination by a President will be considered during that President’s last year, if that President was from the opposing party. He sneered that no such restriction would apply to a similar nomination by a President belonging to McConnell’s own party.

McConnell has obstructed efforts to protect the integrity of American elections.

McConnell has obstructed efforts to prevent sensible limitations on access to weapons that enable mass killings, despite the large majority of Americans that now favor such limitations.

The Senate Majority leader has too much power.

The writers of the Constitution never foresaw the possibility of this type of abuse of power by a Senator, and certainly wouldn’t have wanted it to occur.

Either the rules of the Senate must be changed to prevent this sort of abuse, or the Constitution must be amended to do so.

The rule should be that within 10 days of receiving a bill passed by the House or a nomination from the President, the whole availible body of the Senate shall vote on whether to have debates and a vote to approve or to disapprove the bill from the House, or the nomination by the President. This first vote does not require the Senators to have studied the prospective bill or candidate: they need only to have a rough sense of what the bill is about, or a rough sense of the nominee’s background. If at least 40% of the Senate votes to debate and then vote upon the House bill or on the Presidential nomination, the debate and the legally-binding vote shall occur in a timely fashion. Those who voted for the debate and the binding vote shall schedule the date for the binding vote, allowing adequate time for Senators to scrutinize the bill or to interview the candidate. The Majority Leader of the Senate shall have no special role in setting that date, and may participate in setting that date only if having voted for the debate and binding vote to occur.

Most of the procedures in a legislative body should be independent of which party currently dominates the membership of that body. Of course the outcomes of many of votes will be determined by the majority. But not all outcomes will ne determined that way: legislators have the right to not always vote the party line. McConnell’s rule takes away some of that freedom of conscience, and assumes that all voting will be by unchanging blocks.

Mitch McConnell has chosen to become one of the major villains in American history.

A large fraction of the population is satisfied with their private health insurance
That includes most Federal employees and retirees.

This fraction of the population regularly votes.

No one who is satisfied with their private health insurance can vote for any candidate who wants to eliminate or to significantly change private heath insurance.

HeathCare For All = good, and non-coercive.
Medicare For All = bad, for two important reasons:

– It would be coercive.

– It is guaranteed to degrade the quality and availability of the heathcare available,
both to those who currently have healthcare insurance,
and to those who do not.

Those who have private healthcare insurance currently subsidize the doctors and the hospitals who serve those who do not currently have healthcare insurance,
as well as those who do currently have healthcare insurance.

We are happy to do so, because that subsidizing preserves both the number of doctors and the number of hospitals.

That is an aspect of private heathcare insurance that the advocates of Medicare For All do not want to understand.

Bernie Sanders is not being honest about these consequences of Medicare for All.

If one of the advocates of Medicare for All becomes the Democratic candidate for President, in the election in 2020 I and a very large fraction of other voters will have to leave blank the choice between the candidates for President. We would not vote for President Chump, but we also would not vote for a candidate who would worsen heathcare in the United States.

Here are some tweets by thepoliblog. Some were posted on Trump’s and on McConnell’s government twitter pages, where, as comments by the public about official business, they cannot be removed, so Trump and Trump’s fans, or McConnell and McConnell’s fans, are confronted by them, again and again. Some of the tweets are directed to Devin Nunes and to Rupert Murdoch.
Tweet to counter the twits.
.

Contrary to his boasts, #PresidentChump was a failure in business.
After his many bankruptcies, most banks refused to lend to him.
He was reduced to marketing his name instead of real estate, and to strutting around on TV.
.
Chump is like the Music Man, but meaner.
.
.
When most banks decided to stop lending to #DonnyTheChump,
his main source of funds became Putin’s henchmen, and DeutscheBank.
That is probably one reason why #PresidentChump hides his tax returns.
It also explains his loyalty to Putin.
#PresidentChump is Putin’s chihuahua.
.
.
#PresidentChump’s inflated claims of wealth are designed to support his false
claim of success in business.
They are like con-man Bernie Madoff’s claims to his actual and potential investors.
This is one of the reasons why Chump wants to hide his tax forms.
.
If #PresidentChump’s claims of wealth were true, he could prove his claims by showing his tax forms, as previous Presidential candidates and Presidents have done.
.
.
Recent newspaper articles wonder whether a woman can be elected President.
We already have proof that a woman can be.

Hillary Clinton would have won if it hadn’t been for the obsolete Electoral College, Putin’s interference, disgruntled Berniecrats, and the malevolent Green Party, which always draws pro-environment votes away from the only pro-environment candidates who could win.

President John Barron?
John Barron, John Baron, and John Miller are names that #PresidentChump
used in phone calls to the New York Times, while attempting to CREATE fake news.
He pretended to be calling with favorable insider information about Donald Trump.
.
.
#PresidentChump is NOT the leader of the free world.
He doesn’t even LIKE free societies.
He prefers authoritarian societies: societies that are
like the Trump Organization writ large.
.
.
#PresidentChump envies heads of state who command goons.
You can see that at his rallies,
and in his approval of the atrocities by Putin, bin Salman, Kim, Duterte, and on and on, ad nauseum.
.
.
#PresidentChump sneered at John McCain’s academic record.
Them why does #Chump use lawyers to prevent the release of his OWN academic records? You already know the answer.
.
.
Why is #PresidentChump’s self-esteem so fragile?
His father bullied him, and his alcoholic drug-addicted older brother committed suicide.

The guilty deny guilt. Chump’s panic and frenzy give him away.
.
.

No, #PresidentChump made America SECOND-RATE again.
.
.
#PresidentChump, how does it feel to be one of the 3 worst Presidents
in American history, and, among those 3, to be one of the most harmful 2 ?
.
.
#PresidentChump, how does it feel to be the most illiterate President in American history?
You boasted that you didn’t read your textbooks in school because you didn’t need to.
That was a lie. You didn’t read them, because you couldn’t.
.
.
His only guiding principle: Trump First!
His only goal: Make Trump Great Again! Lets hear it: MTGA!
.
.
#PresidentChump is an excrementalist: an excremental political thinker, an excremental economist, an excremental human being, and an excremental businessman.
.
.
#PresidentChump cannot read Mueller’s report, because he cannot read.
Chump tries to hide the fact that he is nearly illiterate.
.
.
#PresidentChump, the Creepy Clown in the White House,
deserves to be impeached and convicted.
.
But unpatriotic Mitch McConnell would prevent conviction by the Senate, which President Chump would then claim as exoneration.
.
Nancy Pelosi is right. Hold hearings instead, to obtain evidence for the 2020 election.
.
.
Trumpist agent Mitch McConnell blocks Constitutionally mandated Congressional oversight.
He has a conflict of interest: his wife is in #PresidentChump’s cabinet.
.
.
#MBS claimed that his team merely wanted to bring Jamal #Khashoggi
back to Saudi Arabia, and that Khashoggi’s death was unintentional.
Why then did MBS’s team bring a bone saw to their encounter with Khashoggi?
.
#PresidentChump defends MBS: pretended heel spurs defend a bone saw.
.
.
After January 20, 2021, Canada, Mexico, Britain, Ireland, the EU, Australia and other
non-authoritarian countries can declare #PresidentChump (#Trump) to be persona non grata, and bar him from polluting their countries by his presence.
.
.
#PresidentChump demanded that Obama display his birth certificate.
With far more justification, we demand to see X-rays of
President Chump’s heel spurs. Heel spurs don’t go away by themselves.
If they are no longer there, show us documentation of the operation that removed them.
.
.
If what E. Jean Carroll says is true, #PresidentChump attempted rape.
He should be tried. If convicted, he should go to jail,
and should be required to register as a sex offender.
.
.
#PresidentChump claims the he didn’t rape E. Jean Carroll because
she “is not my type”.
Pause for a moment, to digest what Chump’s statement says about his character.
.
.
#PresidentChump claims that he didn’t rape E. Jean Carroll because
“she’s not my type”. But Lady Liberty is not his type either,
and that hasn’t prevented his repeated attempts the penetrate her.

@realDonaldTrump, #PresidentChump, are you proud of what you tried to do to Vera Coking?
{Widowed Homeowner Foils Trump in Atlantic City, By DAVID M. HERSZENHORN JULY 21, 1998}
And YOU call OTHER people NASTY!
.
.
@realDonaldTrump, #PresidentChump, you tried to have an elderly widow, Vera Coking, ejected from from the home that held all of her treasured memories.
You LOST!
You claim that you always win, but that is just a bluff. You are a LOSER!
.
.
#PresidentChump = President John Barron = President John Baron = President John Miller.
You pretended to the New York Times to be other people
with insider information about the wealth and victories of Donald Trump.
That was ACTUAL Fake News!
.
.
The United States WAS the greatest and most powerful nation on Earth, but only  before you became #PresidentChump.
You didn’t Make America Great Again, you Made America Second Rate Again.
.
.
The most harmful immigrants so far have been the ancestors of
#PresidentChump, and Rupert Murdoch himself.
.
.
#PresidentChump, in 2002 you said of Jeffrey Epstein “… he likes beautiful women
as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side.” How young did you know about?
.
.
Leave, #PresidentChump! Emmigrate to Putinia – Putin’s Russia.
You don’t share the values of any free country.
.
.
America receives NO PAYMENTS from the tariffed country.
Importers in the US pay, and ultimately WE pay.
Another lie by #PresidentChump.
.
.
The Pilgrims were refugees, seeking freedom to practice their religion.
Most other immigrants from Europe and elsewhere came to escape persecution
and/or sought opportunity. Examples: your paternal grandparents and your mother.

Today’s immigrants have the same motives.
#PresidentChump, what is your justification for persecuting them?
.
.
Disloyal Devin Nunes,
Dances to Putin’s tunes.
Devin, why do you oppose protecting American elections against Putin?
Devin, why haven’t you registered as lobbyist for a foreign government?
.
.
Mitch McConnell is not Putin’s agent. He just acts like one.
.
.
@realDonaldTrump
You said that “Mental illness and hatred pulls the trigger, not the gun.”
That just proves that the gun shouldn’t have been available, #PresidentChump.
.
.
Other countries have about the same percentage as we do
of mentally ill people and of haters.
But they don’t have as many mass shootings (we are number 1!)
because in other countries guns are not so easy to obtain, #PresidentChump.
.
.
#PresidentChump, your trade wars reflect poorly on Wharton.
You failed to learn at Wharton why trade deficits are not harmful.
.
.
Hey, #MoscowMitch! You obstruct the defense of the integrity of US elections.
That obstructs the defense of the integrity of Kentucky’s elections.
.
Did Kentucky’s voters know that they voted for a Senator who would work against their interests?
Putin thanks you for leaving the door open.
.
.
#MoscowMitch is too busy protecting #PresidentChump and Putin.
He doesn’t have time to work on protecting American adults or kids.
Not even kids in Kentucky.
.
.
#PresidentChump, Wharton’s shame.
Mis-understands foreign trade,
Causing farmers’ pain.
.
.
#PresidentChump, Wharton’s shame.
Wharton should withdraw your degree
until you pass a remedial course
in foreign trade.

A Federal court recognized that President Chump often uses his tweets for official statements, and therefore ruled that because of the First Amendment to the Constitution, President Chump cannot block comments by the public on his twitter page.

The ruling is described in an article by Larry Neumeister (Associated Press), and in an article by Ann E. Marimow (Washington Post).

This ruling provides a precious channel for the public to:

refute President Chump’s lies and ignorant assertions, almost immediately after the twit has tweeted them, and before they can gain traction;

– do so where Chump’s followers cannot avoid seeing the evidence that Chump is wrong;

provide ammunition that others can use in political and legal actions.


Here are examples of comments to Chump’s tweets that thepoliblog – thanks to the court’s ruling – has been able to post on Chump’s twitter time-line (@realDonaldTrump):

@realDonaldTrump, #PresidentChump, are you proud of what you tried to do to Vera Coking? (See here  and here ) And YOU call OTHER people NASTY!

#PresidentChump = President John Barron = President John Baron = President John Miller.
You pretended to the New York Times to be other people having insider information about the wealth and victories of Donald Trump.  That was ACTUAL Fake News!

Horrible abuses? #PresidentChump, you claim that you didn’t rape E. Jean Carroll because “she’s not my type”. Look at the photo in https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/E._Jean_Carroll.  In the mid-1990s she WAS your type. Lyin’ Donald Trump.

#PresidentChump, you claim that you didn’t rape E. Jean Carroll in the mid-1990s.
Your denial is less convincing now that you are doing the same thing to Lady Liberty.

The United States WAS the greatest and most powerful nation on Earth before
you became #PresidentChump. You didn’t Make America Great Again,
you Made America Second Rate Again.

The most harmful immigrants so far have been the ancestors of
#PresidentChump, and Rupert Murdoch.

#PresidentChump, in 2002 you said of Jeffrey Epstein “… he likes beautiful women
as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side.” How young did you know about?


thepoliblog is not the only person who uses the term President Chump.
While using twitter, you can find the many tweets that use that term by searching for that term, and also by searching for #PresidentChump.

If you, too, adopt this term, you will help to turn it into a meme that will weaken Chump’s ability to damage the United States and other open, humane societies.
