Joe Rogan tells ‘young and healthy’ listeners to skip COVID vaccine, ignites social media firestorm UFC commentator and popular podcast host Joe Rogan told his younger listeners on Tuesday not to bother getting the COVID-19 vaccine, despite mounting calls from health officials for the participation of younger demographics to help the country reach herd immunity. Rogan reportedly told listeners on the April 23 episode of his highly popular Spotify podcast, “The Joe Rogan Experience,” that they can forego the vaccine assuming they’re fit and healthy. His comments directly contradict the latest CDC guidance, which encourages all those over the age of 16 and up to receive the vaccine and help move the country closer to reaching herd immunity. The 53-year-old podcast legend recommended that ‘vulnerable’ listeners get the shot, noting that his own parents had received their vaccines. “People say, ‘Do you think it’s safe to get vaccinated?’ I’ve said, yeah, I think for the most part it’s safe to get vaccinated. I do. I do,” Rogan said. “But if you’re like 21 years old, and you say to me, Should I get vaccinated? I’ll go no,’ he clarified. ” Look, don’t do anything stupid, but you should take care of yourself,” Rogan continued. “You should — If you’re a healthy person, and you’re exercising all the time, and you’re young, and you’re eating well, like, I don’t think you need to worry about this.” Rogan’s controversial comments sparked mixed reactions on social media.3

Copper surfaces can inactivate SARS-CoV-2 in as little as one minute, study finds The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), caused by the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) pathogen, continues to spread worldwide, with many countries reporting surging cases. The virus spreads primarily through respiratory droplets and aerosols that hang in the air after an infected person coughs, sneezes, breathes, or speaks. These droplets can also spread through contaminating surfaces that are commonly touched (also known as ‘fomites’), such as doorknobs, tables, stair rails, and telephone handles, to name a few. A new study by researchers at the University of Southampton, UK, has found that SARS-CoV-2 can inactivate on copper surfaces in as little as 1 minute. This is faster than the findings of previous studies in which it took as much as 4 hours before the virus was inactivated. Copper has inherent antimicrobial qualities. When cleaned properly and regularly, commonly touched surfaces with uncoated copper alloy materials will effectively kill infectious pathogens. In different forms, copper has been widely used in research and clinical settings to reduce the risk of bacterial and viral contamination. Hence, many studies have explored the use of copper surfaces and materials to combat the spreading of SARS-CoV-2.
AMPK activators: Mechanisms of action and physiological activities AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) is a central regulator of energy homeostasis, which coordinates metabolic pathways and thus balances nutrient supply with energy demand. Because of the favorable physiological outcomes of AMPK activation on metabolism, AMPK has been considered to be an important therapeutic target for controlling human diseases including metabolic syndrome and cancer. Thus, activators of AMPK may have potential as novel therapeutics for these diseases. In this review, we provide a comprehensive summary of both indirect and direct AMPK activators and their modes of action in relation to the structure of AMPK. We discuss the functional differences among isoform-specific AMPK complexes and their significance regarding the development of novel AMPK activators and the potential for combining different AMPK activators in the treatment of human disease.
Copper regulates cyclic-AMP-dependent lipolysis Cell signaling relies extensively on dynamic pools of redox-inactive metal ions such as sodium, potassium, calcium and zinc, but their redox-active transition metal counterparts such as copper and iron have been studied primarily as static enzyme cofactors. Here we report that copper is an endogenous regulator of lipolysis, the breakdown of fat, which is an essential process in maintaining body weight and energy stores. Using a mouse model of genetic copper misregulation, in combination with pharmacological alterations in copper status and imaging studies in a 3T3-L1 white adipocyte model, we found that copper regulates lipolysis at the level of the second messenger, cyclic AMP (cAMP), by altering the activity of the cAMP-degrading phosphodiesterase PDE3B. Biochemical studies of the copper-PDE3B interaction establish copper-dependent inhibition of enzyme activity and identify a key conserved cysteine residue in a PDE3-specific loop that is essential for the observed copper-dependent lipolytic phenotype.
Improvement in Impaired Social Cognition but Not Seizures by Everolimus in a Child with Tuberous Sclerosis-Associated Autism through Increased Serum Antioxidant Proteins and Oxidant/Antioxidant Status We investigated the effect of the mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) inhibitor everolimus on tuberous sclerosis complex- (TSC-) associated autistic symptoms and focal seizures with impaired awareness in a female child with TSC. We further evaluated the relationship between improved autistic symptoms and seizures and increased the serum levels of the antioxidant proteins, ceruloplasmin (Cp) and transferrin (Tf), and oxidant-antioxidant status indicated by the oxidant marker oxidized low-density lipoprotein (ox-LDL) and the antioxidant marker total antioxidant power (TAP). Everolimus treatment improved impaired social cognition and autistic behaviors; however, seizure and epileptic activity persisted. Serum Cp and Tf levels gradually increased in response to improved autistic symptoms. Serum TAP levels gradually decreased from baseline to the lowest value at 16 weeks and then increased at 24 weeks, showing a trend toward decreased total score of the Aberrant Behavior Checklist. This study revealed that everolimus treatment improved impaired social cognition with increased serum levels of the copper mediator (Cp) and iron mediator (Tf) via homeostatic control of mTOR activity accompanied by overlap of the oxidant-antioxidant system. Everolimus had no effect on TSC-related epileptiform discharges, and thus, the autistic symptoms and epileptic activity may be two independent end results of a common central nervous system disorder including mTOR hyperactivity. This trial is registered with JMAS-IIA00258.
Hour 2 – Outside The Box With Ty Bollinger!
It’s time to go Outside The Box again with Ty Bollinger! What will we be talking about today?
Dr. “Flip-Flop” Fauci finally allows vaccinated people to take off their masks, but only outside At the forefront of the covid-19 scandal is Dr. Anthony Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease. When the coronavirus gain-of-function research (that he funded and monitored for years) went LIVE on the world’s population, Fauci wasn’t questioned, scrutinized or held to account. Instead, he was promoted to a highly-advertised position of power in the federal government. He immediately used this position of power to advise governments on how best to lock people down, isolate and control their lives. His approach contributed to widespread crimes against humanity and did nothing to address the underlying health issues that caused suffering in nursing homes and select hospital systems across the country. Ever since he first reached up at the microphone at the Federal Coronavirus Task Force, Dr. Fauci has been the center of attention and the ultimate authority over the “science” surrounding covid-19. No other perspective was allowed. Americans were forced into isolation and terrorized to believe lies about their immune system.
Facebook says it removed the internet’s 12 most prominent anti-vaxxers. 10 are still on the social network One month ago, a report came out detailing how the majority of the anti-vaccination disinformation spreading online originated from just 12 individuals. During a hearing at the time, CEOs of the Big Tech companies to take on the falsehoods running rampant on their platforms and threatening public health. Fast forward to today. While the Big Tech CEOs didn’t show up for Tuesday’s Congressional hearing, the companies did send representatives. And, when asked about these 12 anti-vaxxers, known as the Disinformation Dozen, a Facebook executive said that the social network took action on what was included in the report. However, the Center for Countering Digital Hate (CCDH) and Anti-Vax Watch, the two organizations that put together the original report, say that’s not the case. 10 out of these 12 individuals remain on Facebook, the organizations say. Nine of the Disinformation Dozen are still on Instagram, a platform owned by Facebook. And over on Twitter, 10 out of 12 of these anti-vaxxers still have accounts as well. In response to the hearing, the CCDH and Anti-Vax Watch have just what they are calling the “sequel” to the initial Disinformation Dozen report. It provides multiple examples of how these prominent anti-vaxxers, such as Joseph Mercola, Robert F. Kennedy Jr., and Rizza Islam, have violated Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter’s own policies on COVID-19 and vaccination misinformation.
West Virginia Will Pay Young People $100 To Get Vaccinated Against COVID-19 Young people who get the COVID-19 vaccine in West Virginia won’t just gain protection against a deadly virus — they’ll also make money. The state will offer a $100 savings bond to everyone between the ages of 16 and 35 who gets vaccinated, Gov. Jim Justice, a Republican, announced at a Monday briefing. It’s part of an ongoing push to get shots into the arms of younger residents, who have been largely slow to roll up their sleeves so far. “Our kids today probably don’t really realize just how important they are in shutting this thing down,” Justice said. “I’m trying to come up with a way that’s truly going to motivate them — and us — to get over the hump.” The initiative will apply retroactively to people in this age group who have already gotten their shots. It is funded with money from the CARES Act, with Justice adding that officials have “vetted this in every way that we possibly can.” West Virginia’s vaccine rollout got off to a famously strong start earlier this year. Despite challenges such as a widespread lack of Internet access, the largely rural state had managed to fully vaccinate such a large percentage of its eligible population by late February that, had it been a country, it would have ranked third in the world.
Florida official orders workers to vaccinate or risk firing A Florida tax collector has ordered her employees to get the coronavirus vaccine or risk being fired. Palm Beach County Tax Collector Anne Gannon told her 315 employees last week of her decision after doing research and concluding she could legally do it, she told the Palm Beach Post. She said her employees have contact with the public and two workers tested positive last week. Many others tested positive earlier and one died. The collector’s office is semi-autonomous and its revenue comes from a percentage of the taxes it collects for other agencies and from fees it charges for services such as issuing vehicle registrations. “For every person who gets COVID, it costs our business money and it gives us an inability to meet our customer needs,” said Gannon, who was first elected in 2006. “I have a responsibility to protect my employees and the public.” Gannon doesn’t know the exact number, but said most of her employees have received at least one dose of the vaccine. Some, however, have been hesitant, pointing to false claims that the vaccine can cause infertility, she said.
2 new clot cases in Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine recipients reported, CDC investigating The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is investigating two new cases of a rare, severe blood clot that occurred alongside low platelets in Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine recipients, bringing the total number of instances to 17. A CDC spokesperson told Fox News that one case of thrombosis with thrombocytopenia syndrome (TTS) under investigation occurred in a male vaccine recipient, and the other in a female, both under age 60. It was not clear if the male patient was the same individual in California who is receiving treatment at the University of California San Francisco medical center. “Investigations are ongoing,” a CDC spokesperson told Fox News via email. “To protect patient privacy CDC does not provide information about cases of adverse events after vaccines that might potentially identify the patients.” The spokesperson said the agency along with the FDA is continuing to monitor for reports of TTS through the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS). The CDC along with the FDA had acted to lift a temporary pause that was placed on the national rollout after determining that the benefits of the vaccine outweigh the risks. About 8.1 million doses of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine had been administered in the U.S.
