Q -Tip No. 4 Canadian Builder

Pursuant to his promise

to make America No. 1 country in the world,

Trump bullies and blames everybody else.

And now the presumably No. 1 country in the world

battles a war within its turf.

To prevent this situation, America has spent trillions

of dollars after its Independence.

And now this presumably No. 1 country in the world

is panicking.

It is accentuating its isolationist policy 

with selfish political acts.

It now proposes to break all treaties and negotiations

with other countries altogether in restricting its

companies to to stop exporting goods to other countries.

As for Canada,

it can survive this American isolationist policy

by making its own products.

As regards to masks and ventilators?

Which outfit could best produce these  better than 

Bombardier?

After all, they do build planes, don’t they?

They can build hospital ventilators collectively

in the wards using airplane ventilators.

(And by the way,

we Canadians will have to express gratitude,

both profoundly and correspondingly,

to both Trump and 3M.)

Q -Tip No. 3 Of Masks And Men

The rise of the Covid-19 pandemic

compelled the world to consider masks

and thereafter debate on whether to wear them

or not.

Well, there is a mask which is the Lone-Ranger type.

This type will not be effective for this purpose

as it covers only the cheeks

and makes poor work of it.

It does not filter anything,

not even the identity of the wearer.

This is for sure

because even Tonto refuses to use it.

Another mask is the Jesse James type.

This one is a simple bandanna wrapped

around the face.

This is both colorful and washable

and is available in every household.

A larger handkerchief would do.

Just make sure to take them off  before

you enter a bank.

You would know that the teller has mistaken your intentions

when she starts giving you all the cash in the drawers

without even asking for your signature.

But all kidding aside,

I am referring to the surgical masks

which undoubtedly filters the coronavirus.

If you are not sure whether to wear them or not,

just ask yourself the question at that moment,

“who better needs it now, you or the health care worker?”

 

Q -Tip No. 2 Ventilators

Lend me your ears again

but face somewhere else.

Ventilators save lives, arguably.

They are mechanical aids to supply people

with the oxygen they need.

Here, pressurized oxygen is mixed

with pressurized air and gently forced

in the lungs which converts the 

gas into carbon dioxide which is exhaled

thru this machine.

What I would like you to consider

is the question

“where do this exhaled gases go?”

The ventilator service manuals

do not cover this topic.

neither do the doctors and nurses know.

But they should,

particularly if the exhalation gas

contain the covid-19 virus.

I am now assuming that the communicable exhalation

exhausts inside the room,

or ward,

if the machine is a hospital ventilator.

Such is one situation that may cause

the nurses and the doctors to be infected.

Perhaps the hospital techs can do more

by installing makeshift bottles containing 

cooking oil or the like.

A tube could be connected from the exhalation valve

to this makeshift bottle to force the exhalation

to impinge on the oil.

The tube should not be immersed in the oil

and that nothing should interfere with the

natural flow of the exhalation gas.

Any exhaled virus can be trapped this way.

Q -Tip No. 1

Q -Tip No.1

Do not mistake my Q-Tip

to that kind that you clean your ears with.

My Q-Tip is a Quotable Tip,

and as the term implies,

you can quote it anytime, anywhere.

The main difference between my Q -Tip and your Q -Tip

is that my Q -Tip can be inserted thru your left ear

and then pulled out from the right ear.

Try this with your Q -Tip.

My Quotable Tip No. 1 takes into account the multiple deaths from Covid-19 in nursing homes, seniors homes, auxiliary hospitals and any other relative buildings which are of the closed ventilation type for the occupants. These buildings require mechanical ventilation to force air inside the building. the ventilating systems common for these types of buildings would consist of a furnace or heater in the basement or an air conditioner on the roof.

It can go without saying that the air inside these buildings is for common consumption and thereby lies the danger of infecting the occupants with virus from any single resident. Now it is arguable that the Covid-19 virus may not be airborne but this argument still has no basis for conclusions. Whether it can be airborne or not. it will be safer to assume that it can be airborne as much as it can be inside droplets of liquid. Besides, the air I am specifying is actually humidified, which means it has enough moisture that it can hold.

Which gives rise to a detailed rundown of what a closed ventilating system looks like. In a nursing home, the air is heated by a furnace in the basement. This has a supervisor or a technician to oversee its operation. Fresh air, about 10% to 20% is sucked in from outside, is mixed with air recirculated from the building, is passed through the heating elements, is forced through a water humidifier, and then distributed to the rooms through air vents. The recirculated air is sucked in through the vents which are placed strategically apart from the hot air vents. Both the incoming air and the return air are situated at the bottom of the rooms. This makes the hot air stay at the ceiling and the cold air nearer the floor. If the air is infected, it stays up there for a while.

If the covid-19 virus will spread, it will be through the upper space inside the room or corridors. This is humidified air. The virus may be killed when it passes the heater but the humidified air does not pass the heater. So what could be obtained is humidified air floating around the building and used air remaining inside the ducts waiting to be recirculated.. This portion of air inside the building produces the risk of infection and only about 10% of it is replaced with fresh air. Perhaps an efficient use of the manual switch of the furnace blower to suck in more outside air is logical.

What could have been done for added safety is to add or tape air vent filters all over the place. These air vent filters are available in hardware stores and can be doubled together for better effect. Other more expensive systems of sanitation may be used. like effective air sterilizing equipment with water sprayers.

This Quotable Tip is making the assumption that dishes are diligently washed clean.

Disinformation

Disinformation is basically misinformation

coupled with malicious intent.

One shield against this is Maria Ressa,

CEO of Rappler, who uses words as a lance

but subjects herself to judicial repercussions

 in the effort.

as a whistleblower.

This word is in itself a disinformation

and is being used against her

with impunity.

Ibuprofen Nixed

This tip comes straight from 

Vancouver Nurses :

Ibuprofen (from Advil)

makes the Covid-19

ten times more potent.

It escapes me how the nurses

could have ascertained that the patients

have ingested Ibuprofen.

Also

the syrup called Eucalyptin Lebrun

comes with codeine

which prevents local drug stores from carrying it.

They may have Eucalyptus oil or Black Elderberry Extract.

Ask the pharmacist first for advice.

But what the hey,

a good thing to remember is that

this virus must pass the throat to reach the lungs.

and also before it gets coughed up.

This tip comes from me :

upgrade the term Social Distancing

to Social Disciplining.

(you are responsible for what you ingest)

Annual Bombardier Bailout

SO

Bombardier of Quebec

is slated to get bailed out again

by using Canadian Taxpayers’ money.

This bailout goes on every year.

This company is not profitable.

It employs 50% more people than necessary.

And these are paid 50% more than necessary.

The Canadian Taxpayers should buy them out

so that the people can decide where the plant/s

are to be located

and the employees to be hired.

This is another beef that the Western cows

are crying for.

No ownership, no bailout!

No Bombardier, no pain!

The Bombardier employees should be laid off 

and they should apply for unemployment insurance

just like everybody else.

(no absolute power for this Liberal Government which has proven to be spendthrift on anything and everything they can think of )

 

 

 

Chinese Rules of Prevention

Regarding the Covid-19 virus prevention

this is what the Chinese have learned,

from autopsies.

 and hospital procedures.

Listen well, no video here

just plain useful advice.

And next time, do not ignore…..

You may be good, highly-trained

well-educated doctors

in high positions

and high salaries

but you have to use your heads

sometimes.

And sometimes

we learn from guesses

and misinformation

like lime, lemon, and oranges.

How to secure Social distance

If you want to secure a safe social distance,

eat more gas-forming foods

like sweet potatoes and the like.

Ah, but you know what I mean…

More Covid-19 Questions

Here are more dumb questions

to be ignored by the smart doctors

that you watch on tv.

Firstly,

Of all the rules that were shouted on tv,

about washing your hands

and don’t touch your face;

why don’t they just say

wash your hands

and wash your face?

Secondly,

to declare success against this virus

are they just waiting for that time 

when the virus run out of weak people

to infect?

Thirdly,

why do these smart people demean

the wearing of masks

as it these do not prevent infection

at any single time?

Fourthly,

what may be the reason why

these smart doctors on tv

are unable to say that they do not know?

Why don’t they use forensics?

Autopsies should give them a good insight

of how the virus kills.

 

(dare the doctors to obtain emergency powers to secure compliance…)

De-crowning the Coronavirus Part 2

Decrowning the Coronavirus Part 2

The first thing I asked on the outset of this virus is whether it thrives in an acidic environment. This question was ignored twice. And so I left them to do their assumptions and presumptions to the point that what we have now is a complete supplication to the dictates of the virus. The general order of the day is now to let the people who will be infected be infected. And let the people who will die, die. As a result, the world is now approaching a complete isolation and ultimately a complete standstill. People are now afraid to move from where they are, which is a well stocked storage house that is slowly turning to a dreary cocoon.

But forget about the catching words and phrases of what this write up has started, I repeat, this is a guess which you should listen closely because I usually stick something with it which MAY BE worth your while.

Reports of the initial virus start dd not contain anything about its source or the cause. Was it started with an inhalation, an ingestion, or an inebriated excursion? It would have helped a lot if the cause was known very like the Black Plague where the rats could have been exterminated right aboard the ships. The carrier fleas could have been eradicated with sprays had it be known that they carry the plague.

Which brings us back to my question—does the virus thrive in an acidic environment? You may ask why I asked this question. well the reports say that the test for this virus consist of getting samples from the nostrils, the throats, and maybe the nasal passages, This proves that it is transferred by inhalation, not by injection or touch or even by having sex. It is therefore what was an old term for it which is a COMMUNICABLE DISEASE. This term was never used by any whichever doctor or physician or pharmacist even if the chances are it was started by contact.

This virus has the option of residing on the skin, eyes, limbs, heart, ears, brain,stomach, intestines would it have been a potent communicable virus, Instead we find it in the nose, throat, nasal passages and in the lungs where it does most of its destructive work. But why not the stomach when it can have the option of sliding thru the valve towards the esophagus? Well guess what, it may have gone thru to the stomach but that organ presents a more violent activity than the lungs, and primarily because the stomach has digestive enzymes that would present the virus with an acidic environment which proves fatal to the virus. Conclusively I can say that the Covid-19 cannot exist in an acidic environment.

Which brings us to what probably may be one thing to combat the virus—-acidity, or that which is inherent in citrus fruits like lime, lemon, oranges, and etc. the common table salt is also acidic, so does sea water. In such days like these we may not be able to go to the beaches to swim. Maybe use inhalers, vaporizers, sprayers instead. if the virus is already at the peak of its destructive work, the space within the lungs should be acidic to stop it before it causes the fatal damage. Acidic vapors may be inhaled or forced through towards the lungs.

How does the virus kill? Another question which was ignored. Does the virus kill by collapsing the lungs, or puncturing it, or by eroding it, perforating, eatng, shrinking? Whichever it may do would result in the person gasping for air. Shortness of breath means not enough oxygen is being produced by the lungs. This will not yet kill the person,. But what would kill the person is the lack of oxygen that goes to his brain. When this happens, the involuntary activities of the body stops. the heart will not pump blood and the lungs will not work. Everything stops. The brain is still cognizant for that moment but it is unable to send impulses to the spinal column.

And then the person realizes that he is already dead.

De-crowning the Coronavirus

It’s beginning to be deafening,

hammered over and over again,

this rule about washing your hands.

Tell that to the Italians

or to the Spaniards.

This is the wrong message

for these people

who greet each other

with hugs and kisses.

The right rule should be

“wash your lips!”

But what then will a body do

if he is 80 years old

and he feels the virus has taken hold of him?

The vaccine should cure him.

But it will be available later in 4 months

not within this 4 minutes

that should spell his life.

Hokay,

I will write down what I think

may be a good remedy for him.

Remember though that what follows next

will be a figment of my imagination

and should therefore not be treated

as gospel.

Treat it as a misinformation

or just just an absurd, funny suggestion.

In such a case, give me the benefit of

a commendation to the Entertainers Club.

(I will wait first for several hours more

before I proceed,

in case some learned health wizard

have the same idea as I do.

In which case he will get the credit

for the suggestion.)

Concerto in E Minor

Covid-19 Monotony

Much time is being devoted to this topic.

One is unable to watch anything else.

And the message is the same—

wash your hands keep your distance,

cover your mouth when sneezing or coughing,

stay at home in isolation,

go ahead and travel abroad,

but don’t ever come back if you did!

and so forth and so on.

Monotonous!

It is amazing though that the more

important things that people should know

are being omitted, or missed.

Things that the contaminated person

will be able to do or take to cure himself.

Perhaps another post here from me might

be able to suggest remedies or cure against

the Covid-19.

Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2

The ever popular Hungarian Rhapsody No.2

by Franz Liszt

is given a new twist by Vladimir Horowitz.

It is an arrangement actually not a twist.

What was accomplished is add to the original composition

variations of the theme by using the same bars

in some sequential and contrapuntal renditions.

You may at some points of the rendition recognize 

that the left hand is playing some bars while

the right hand is playing other bars at the same time.

But listen, anyway, and then get blasted at the finale.
