Forget about kissing with passion.  The kiss has gone by the affectionate wayside along with hand shaking to prevent the spread of H1N1 Swine Flu and other contagious maladies.

Like many foreign countries the French, with their variety of cultural traditions some explained here, http://www.transitionsabroad.com/publications/magazine/0505/working_and_living_do_and_donts_in_france.shtml  have  their traditional cheek-to-cheek kiss or  “la bise.”  La bise has been discouraged so for health reasons due to the Swine H1N1 Flu. 

“Our behaviour has already changed,” said Frédéric Chapelle, a psychiatrist.

“It might seem excessive, but given that it might knock out half the population, fear of others will set in and people will say if I kiss my colleague, I might catch it,” she told Le Parisien.

Nathalie, a secretary in Nanterre, west of Paris, said old habits are proving hard to change. “For the first time I recoiled when a colleague who had come back from holiday in Reunion island came to give me a kiss. She took it badly,” she said. Employees are being asked to respect a one-yard person-to-person buffer zone.  http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/europe/france/6155768/France-facing-la-bise-ban-over-swine-flu-fears.html

In Italy, a phial of what local Roman Catholics believe is the blood of Saint Gennaro at the Duomo in Naplesis commonly kissed.  Fear of H1N1 flu stopped devout Neapolitans from performing the time-honoured ritual of kissing the blood of their patron Saint Gennaro during this weeks festival. The decision to forbid kissing of the glass phial containing the saint’s blood was taken reluctantly by ecclesiastical and city authorities on Monday, and has brought protests from local politicians.  http://www.ottawacitizen.com/story_print.html?id=1971997&sponsor=

The Dancing Pig, The Dancing Swine, Le cochon danseur or el cerdo bailarín movie, was released in 1907 as  a burlesque movie.  It was long before anyone ever heard of any kind of Swine Flu, or the A/H1N1 Swine Influenza as it more politically correct to call it these days.

The plot of the movie is a pig dressed in fancy clothes flirting with a pretty girl, but she humiliates him and tears off his suit; then she  makes him do a little dance for her affections.

How Le cochon danseur could be erotic by today’s standards or even those of nearly a hundred years ago is beyond me.  Times haven’t changed that much though as some men still belittle themselves and act like pigs at times.  Chris Brown comes to mind and so does Larry King for bothering to air his pleas for an apology. 

Many popular movies center around domestic violence and are box office smashes.  Burning Bed.  Fried Green Tomatoes. Shattered Dreams. The Color Purple. Sleeping with the Enemy.  The appeal of domestic violence does not appeal to me.  I only have fear at the admonishment I would receive from my spouse if I ever raised a hand.  My mama raised me better.

Got me to thinking maybe our politicians are the pigs flirting with your vote and America’s future.  Or stretching a bit- maybe the pigs are the pharmaceutical companies releasing the A/H1N1 Monovalent Influenza vaccine laden with toxic ingredients and little clinical testing.

What happens at the end of the movie behind closed doors is any one’s guess.  What happens behind the closed doors of Washington and big pharmaceutical businesses is also any one’s guess. 

With out giving away the end of the movie, the pig comes out smiling in the end.  At the end of President Obama’s term I wonder if you will smile because of what he has accomplished or because America can begin again.

What is apparent in the H1N1 Swinf pandemic flu emergency, is that occasionally it is okay to just accept something for what it is.  Two minutes of distraction and entertainment.

Summer is officially over here in the Northern Hemisphere.  As if it isn’t bad enough to think about grey and dreary weather for the next 7 months- we have the threat of seasonal and H1N1 swine flu, and the threat that the vaccines being hyped may end up causing the flu itself let alone  immediate side effects, and the potential for long term disability.

CIDRAP provides updates of what we know about  Novel H1N1 Influenza ( The Swine Flu’s official Name) The latest update came out on September 25th and is one of the best places to learn about it..http://www.cidrap.umn.edu/cidrap/content/influenza/swineflu/biofacts/swinefluoverview.html Turning my antenna after reading it was:

A recent molecular analysis of the novel H1N1 virus demonstrates that the virus possesses a distinctive evolutionary trait (genetic distinctness) that may be characteristic in pig-human interspecies transmission of influenza A (reported cases of similar reassortant viruses of swine origin occurred in Iowa, Maryland, and Wisconsin between 1991 and 2006)

This novel Swine H1N1 flu has been apparently occurring for some time, but only now has seen rapid progression.

CBC News in Canada  http://www.naturalnews.com/027102_vaccines_H1N1_flu_shot.html is reporting, “”Four Canadian studies involved about 2,000 people, health officials told CBC News. Researchers found people who had received the seasonal flu vaccine in the past were more likely to get sick with the H1N1 virus.”

You are more likely to get the H1N1 virus if you get the seasonal flu shot!

In the United States- 

In some states, the swine flu vaccine will be injected at public sites like schools and city clinics, as the polio vaccine was doled out in the 1950s. The best-prepared school systems have already asked parents to sign consent forms and have discussed plans at parent-teacher association meetings, Dr. Frieden said. Doctors, pharmacies and companies may also dispense it; the government is urging them to keep fees minimal. http://www.nytimes.com/2009/09/26/health/research/26flu.html?_r=1&hp

Do not sign on the dotted line.

“Yippie-ki-yay, motherfucker.” http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0095016/quotes  All hail God, Jesus, Mohamed, Allah, the Pharaoh’s, Mother Nature, whom, whatever and Buddha too, as Baxter International Inc. (BAX) has launched full-scale production of a vaccine for the A/H1N1 flu virus that could be  ready for use as early as July.  http://online.wsj.com/article/BT-CO-20090612-714016.html 

We’re talking two weeks until projected availability! So much for clinical testing or knowing if it works. Novartis has announced it is ready to rock and roll of on it’s own vaccine.  Replikins’ officials say the company’s PanFLu™ vaccine is ready for clinical and a host of other pharma companies apparently have our ass covered to resist our exposure to the latest supposed freak of nature, Influenza A/H1N1.  Others can be found here at http://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/06/12/vaccine-for-pandemic-h1n1-swine-flu-scientists-roll-up-sleeves/

The creator must love us humans and especially the scientists at Baxter, but in the most humble offering of advise- wake the frig up.  No way on God’s green earth could a company, not only a company with a laboratory 50 miles away from the Swine Flu ground zero outbreak, with a history of malfeasance develop a vaccine within days of receiving the “seed virus” from WHO, be ready to ramp up production of a vaccine against the H1N1 Swine Flu, and save the world from a potential catastrophic proportion of millions of sick and dead.

I was born at night, but it wasn’t last night.  The virus is allegedly a brand new strain that is targeting young and  healthy people.  The Main Stream Media would have us believe it is a never before seen intercontinental mixture of human, avian and pig viruses from America, Europe and Asia but the leading scientists of the world are calling bullshit, proving that this has been around for perhaps more than 15 years.

Various sources are reporting this new undetected virus that has occurred basically is a freak of nature that is now spreading across the world infecting thousands via human to human contact,  and glory be the pharmaceutical companies are ready with a vaccine within days of WHO announcing a Pandemic.  Oh, get a F*%)!ng grip on reality. 

How long has the AIDS virus been around?  Scientists have had years to study it;  “HIV mutates rapidly, and in the vast majority of people these antibodies cannot completely neutralize the many mutant versions of the virus present in any single person” http://www.iavi.org/research-development/Pages/is-an-AIDS-vaccine-possible.aspx  Mutant versions?  The reassortment of H1N1 and its mutations are all over the map from Gen Bank.

Some licensed vaccines, called live-attenuated vaccines, use a crippled but living version of the targeted pathogen—or disease-causing organism—to teach the immune system what it must attack to prevent infection. Such vaccines, however, cannot be developed against HIV because of concern that the crippled HIV might revert to its disease-causing form. But live-attenuated SIV vaccines have proven effective in protecting rhesus macaques from infection with SIV, providing a proof of concept for an AIDS vaccine.

SIV is the simian immunodeficiency virus- originated with monkeys and mutated to humans.  Bird Flu, Avian Flu, Swine Flu, Hong Kong Flu, Russian Flu- is it all the business of monkeying around with human lives.

First off, a virus is for all intents and purposes not a living thing so tell me how you are going to kill it?  You aren’t and neither is Baxter, Novartis, or Obama. 

You might put faith in Obama to fix everything from the auto and banking industry to health care reform, but why is he so confident in a plan for mass inoculations at this stage is when there is little proof they would be effective?

Baxter is supposed to follows a BSL3 (Biosafety Level 3) protocol to prevent cross-contamination of materials. “It was a combination of just the process itself, (and) technical and human error in this procedure,” said Baxter’s director of global bioscience communications Christopher Bona, ” when samples of H5N1 from Baxter’s Austrian labs contaminated batches of the less harmful H3N2 seasonal flu virus that it was supplying to European nations.

This is not the first time that vaccine companies have been caught distributing vaccines contaminated with deadly viruses.

In 2006 it was revealed that Bayer Corporation had discovered that their injection drug, which was used by hemophiliacs, was contaminated with the HIV virus. Internal documents prove that after they positively knew that the drug was contaminated, they took it off the U.S. market only to dump it on the European, Asian and Latin American markets, knowingly exposing thousands, most of them children, to the live HIV virus. Government officials in France went to prison for allowing the drug to be distributed. The documents show that the FDA colluded with Bayer to cover-up the scandal and allowed the deadly drug to be distributed globally. No Bayer executives ever faced arrest or prosecution in the United States. http://swine-flu-virus.com/alert-potentially-deadly-swine-flu-spreading-throughout-the-u-s.html

In The U.S. we have two vaccine committees, Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee (VRBPAC http://www.fda.gov/AdvisoryCommittees/CommitteesMeetingMaterials/BloodVaccinesandOtherBiologics/VaccinesandRelatedBiologicalProductsAdvisoryCommittee/default.htm) & ACIP ( http://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/recs/ACIP/default.htm): The Advisory Committee on Immunizations Practices.  How many of the people on these committees have ties to the pharmaceutical industry while they pick, choose and approve waivers eliminating liability? 

Since 9-11 our economy has been focused on terrorism risk management, now we turn to pandemic risk management- how convenient for Obama’s health care reforms and pharmaceutical companies profits.  The latest report from the Markle Task Force urges the President and Congress to take swift action to ensure that policy makers have the best information available to confront a stark set of 21st century national security challenges. http://www.markle.org/resources/national_security/

Thanks be to the Gods in White Coats.

Now that The World Health Organization has issued a full pandemic threat,  I find my antennae tuning in to the rapid manufacture and issuance of drugs, vaccines and potential for mass inoculations. 

Drug makers have obtained the new influenza A H1N1 seed virus in the past two weeks, enabling them to begin the production process by growing the virus in eggs.  http://www.reuters.com/article/mergersNews/idUSWLA645920090611 

Swiss pharmaceuticals company Novartis AG http://www.novartis.com/  said today, it has produced a first batch of experimental swine flu vaccine.  The vaccine hasn’t yet been tested and cannot be used in humans yet. It was made in cells, rather than grown in eggs as is usually the case with vaccines, the company said. http://www.philstar.com/Article.aspx?articleId=476980&publicationSubCategoryId=200  Damn, that was fast and they didn’t have to use eggs solving a potential problem for those with egg allergens.

Not to be outdone, Sinovac Biotech Company,http://www.sinovac.com/ a vaccine-focused biotech company in China, started efforts to manufacture A/H1N1 influenza vaccine for human use on Monday, after it received the flu strain samples from the WHO, reported Beijing News Tuesday. There are another 10 Chinese drug companies that will obtain the flu strain samples “NYMCX-179A” from the WHO this week. http://english.people.com.cn/90001/90782/90880/6675151.html

It can take five or six months to come up with an entirely novel influenza vaccine,” says John Sterling, Editor in Chief of GEN- Genetic Engineering & Biotechnology News. “There is a great deal of hope that biotech and pharma companies might be able to have something ready sooner.” http://www.genengnews.com/articles/chitem.aspx?aid=2938  In just two weeks he has been proven wrong,  as as scientists around the world are accelerating their efforts to develop a vaccine against the H1N1 influenza virus (Swine flu) as rapidly as possible.  

Chan from WHO said she would recommend that vaccine manufacturers proceed with mass production of an inoculation against the new swine flu strain as soon as they finish production of seasonal vaccine, which she estimated would be complete in about two weeks.  HHS spokesman Bill Hall said Thursday that no decision has been made on full-scale production because there is no need yet to make that decision….. The agency awarded a contract several weeks ago to five manufacturers to develop an H1N1 antigen. The companies are producing pilot lots. Clinical testing will take place over the summer, Hall said.  At the end of the summer, HHS will decide whether to go into production. http://entertainment.wagerweb.com/wtf/who-swine-flu-at-stage-6-and-unstoppable-11967.html 

 Dr. Rambaut says”…the increased detection of mildly deleterious mutations resulting from intensive epidemic surveillance; such mutations would more typically be eliminated and escape detection mutations could be adaptations to the new host species….http://www.nature.com/nature/journal/vnfv/ncurrent/pdf/nature08182.pdf  and at his blog http://tree.bio.ed.ac.uk/groups/influenza/ 

Andrew Rambaut, PhD, of the University of Edinburgh’s Institute of Evolutionary Biology says “These pages exist to enable the rapid dissemination of results resulting from the analysis of genetic data from the ongoing Influenza A/H1N1 outbreak attributed to swine flu. All data used, unless otherwise specified, was made available by GISAID -http://platform.gisaid.org/dante-cms/live/struktur.jdante?aid=1131 or NCBI http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/  and can be obtained directly from these sites. It is also reviewed at http://www.cidrap.umn.edu/cidrap/content/influenza/swineflu/news/jun1109rambau.html

Citing the world’s best scientists and research- clearly virus mutations can escape detection, have multiple reassortment, have been around for years and contrary to the Pork Industry claims- eight genomic segments of the novel H1N1 have been circulating in swine populations for a number of years, up to 17 years.  How they got there,only God knows- at least so far.

More importantly, how could WHO, the CDC, NATO, IMF, WB, Department of HHS, and any other agency order an H1N1 antigen or a vaccine when the scientists are still studying the viruses genetic make up and its mutations? Drug makers just got a virus seed two weeks ago, yet clinical studies will take place in the U.S. this summer?  What about the criteria for safety, potency and quality?  Will these anticipated clinical testings take place on animals before the initiation of human clinical trials?

Are you willing to stand in line for an untested vaccine against H1N1?  Maybe they will develop an oral one that can be mailed via the post office while you are in isolation or quarantine.

One year ago, a new technology predicted that significant outbreaks of the H1N1 flu virus would occur within 6 to 12 months…Would- not Could!  The predictions, made by Replikins, were based on correlations of flu virus specimen and Pub Med documentation of major outbreaks during the past 90 years.” Naturally Replikins’ officials say the company’s PanFLu™ vaccine is ready for clinical trials.  Other H1N1 vaccine programs covered in the GEN article include those at Medicago, VaxInnate, NanoBio, Vaxart, Pulmatrix, and Purdue University.  Novavax plans to create a virus-like particle-based (VLP) vaccine against the H1N1 strain, which obviates the need for a live virus seed for manufacturing. The VLPs contain the proteins that make the virus’ outer shell and the surface proteins, without the RNA required for replication. props to  http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/152456.php

How could these companies have known?  How much money are they about to make?  How much more money is Obama going seek for a vaccine?  Will the vaccine kill more people than the virus as in the previous Swine Flu scare?

Health Secretary Kathleen Sebelius “things could possibly be very different in the fall, especially if things change in the southern hemisphere, and we need to start preparing now in order to be ready for a possible H1N1 immunization campaign starting in late September,” she said.http://news.xinhuanet.com/english/2009-06/12/content_11528978.htm .

This year’s seasonal flu shot http://www.cidrap.umn.edu/cidrap/content/influenza/general/news/feb1309selection-br.html changed one of the three strains used in flu vaccines, keeping the influenza A/H1N1 and A/H3N2 variants used in this year’s vaccine, both of which are labeled Brisbane strains. The influenza B component of this year’s flu vaccine was from the Yamagata lineage.  This was decided in February prior to the H1N1 outbreak; how sure are they months later that this year’s annual flu shot will not do more harm than good or encourage viral mutations?

http://www.cdc.gov/flu/weekly/”>http://www.cdc.gov/flu/weekly/ has the flu surveillance report.

Over at the Virology blog http://www.virology.ws/2009/06/09/influenza-virus-toilet/ the author spotted the words ‘Kills Flu Virus’ on a bottle of Clorox toilet bowl cleaner. 

Some idiot is going to drink this to prevent the flu; just like they will stand in line to get a flu shot.
