Pfizer CEO tells CNBC third COVID vaccine dose likely needed within 12 months

Pfizer tells people if you got their shot, you will need a THIRD vaccination within 12 months. Then annual shots.

During an event with CVS Health, Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla told CNBC's Bertha Coombs people will 'likely' need a third dose of a Covid-19 vaccine within 12 months of getting the first two vaccinations.
“It is extremely important to suppress the pool of people that can be susceptible to the virus,” Bourla said.

Since 1.4% of unvaccinated people die of COVID and 1.23% of people who get vaccinated and who still catch COVID die of coronavirus, how effective are these vaccinations, really?

This announcement came as no surprise after a new CDC report announced that almost 6,000 people got infected with COVID after getting vaccinated, and 7% of them were hospitalized with Coronairus after getting the vaccine. At least 74 of them have died of Coronavirus after getting a COVID vaccination, or 1.23%.

Research done by Worldometer indicates that 1.4% of unvaccinated people infected with SARS-CoV-2 die, while 98.6% recover.

Since 1.4% of unvaccinated people die of COVID and 1.23% of people who get vaccinated and still catch COVID-19 die (according to the CDC), how effective are these vaccinations, really?

New Report from CDC: Nearly 6,000 People Infected with COVID After Getting Vaccinated

Some 5,800 people who received a coronavirus vaccine still caught the disease. 396 of them were hospitalized and 74 of the vaccinated people died.

New Report from CDC on COVID Vaccines

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has come out with an interesting recent report on how effective the new COVID-19 vaccines are for preventing Coronavirus. They aren't.

If you don't get vaccinated, you have a 1.4% chance of dying of COVID if you catch the disease. If you do get vaccinated and still catch coronavirus, you have a 1.23% chance of dying of COVID-19. 

According to a news report on CNN. the CDC has reported that approximately 5,800 people who received a coronavirus vaccine still ultimately came down with the disease anyway. Of those 5,800, 396 of them (roughly 7 percent) were hospitalized with COVID-19. Out of that number,74 of the vaccinated people (or 1.23%) ultimately died from coronavirus. 

In other words, if you don't get vaccinated and catch coronavirus, according to many experts, you have a 1.4% chance of dying of COVID. If you do get vaccinated and still catch coronavirus, you have a 1.23% chance of dying of COVID-19. 

This raises the question of just how effective these coronavirus vaccines are and points to how ineffective any suggested "Vaccination Passports" would be.

Possible Health Benefits of Shungite

Because of its luster, the shungite pendent is reflecting the brown shirt. The stone is actually black.

Shungite is a hard form of carbon. Dark black in color, it is a mineraloid that is often lustrous and quite attractive as jewelry as shown in the photo above. Besides its appearance, there is much speculation that shungite possesses interesting health properties. However, there are not enough scientific studies to back most of these claims up.

Possible Health Benefits of Shungite

According to Wikipedia, Shungite has been used as a folk medical treatment since the early 18th century. Peter the Great built Russia's first spa in Karelia to use the water purifying properties shungite was believed to possess, and which he had experienced himself

More research has indicated that while shungite does have good absorption properties towards heavy metals and some organic compounds, and it also has anti-bacterial properties, shungite also releases various chemical elements including heavy metals like nickel, copper, lead, cadmium, zinc, chromium and arsenic into the water.

Other health claims about shungite include the theory it may work as EMF protection. In fact, shungite pyramids are sold to place near appliances and cell phone that emit EMF radiation.There exists an old 2003 study which seems to show that shungite protected rats against electromagnetic irradiation. However, one 20-year-old-study does not make a solid case for shungite as a shield against EMF emissions.

It is also interesting to note that shungite contains small amount of fullerenes, which are closed or partially closed mesh shapes of various sizes. Many people believe it is the fullerenes which give shungite some of the unique properties that some believe it has.

Whatever the truth about the possible health benefits of shungite, it makes a pretty pendent that will go nicely with black pearls.

Laptop Stand for Desk - Adjustable Height Laptop Holder, Aluminum Laptop Riser Computer Stand

 Laptop Stand for Desk Exceeds Expectation

This little laptop stand is almost perfect. It collapses down to a small, portable size that is lightweight and easy to carry. It is already fully assembled. You simply raise one side and then raise the other to whatever height and tilt you want. I was able to use it with a 15" ​HP laptop without much trouble.

The only issue I ran into was my laptop is an older model and probably heavier than newer models. In any case, I had to keep my laptop tilted down at an angle. If I raised the riser closer to a flat setting. the stand tipped over backwards. This is not a big problem for me, since the angle that supports my laptop is a good angle for me. 

This stand would be great for those who need to stand up frequently for the health of their back and necks. 

I give it 4 stars for cost, appearance, portability, appearance, and functionality. The only reason this laptop stand does not get 5 stars is the tendency to tip over if I lift the top riser to a flatter angle.

LEADOKO Women's Summer Gypsy Baggy Tunic Not As Described--A Review

Online Clothing Ads Can Be Deceiving

You know the feeling. You see something online that looks perfect. You look at the specifications or sizes and it looks like a perfect match, so you order it. You can't wait to see your new purchase! A few days later it arrives... and it bears little resemblance to what you ordered. The quality is poor. The size is way off. And it may not look like the picture did online. This was all the case when I ordered the LEADOKO Women's Summer Gypsy Baggy Tunic Tops Shirt Long Sleeve Blouse on What a huge disappointment and waste of money.

Why do companies in Asia think they can say items fit a certain shoulder, bust, waist and sleeve size and then send sub-par garments that are way to small? I don't know, but if you read the reviews, this is a common problem when ordering clothing online.
