      The British Retail Consortium (BRC) said fresh food prices were 14.3% higher this month than a year ago.

    COVID: Another info about upcoming deadly COVID
    • The United States has created a variant of the coronavirus that kills 80 percent of laboratory animals. Igor Kirillov, Chief of the Radiation, Chemical and Biological Defense Forces of the RF Armed Forces, spoke about this during a briefing, RIA Novosti quotes him.

      According to the head of the RCBZ troops, an artificial coronavirus pathogen was created within the walls of Boston University in October 2022 based on the omicron strain and the “Wuhan” variant that initially provoked the pandemic. Kirillov also noted that when interacting with a new pathogen, the protective properties of antibodies are reduced by 11 times, and existing vaccines against it are ineffective.

    Germany: Food inflation soars
    • In September 2022, agricultural producer prices were 39.4% higher than in September 2021. In August 2022, the rate of change was +34.5%, in July 2022 - +33.4%. According to the Federal Statistical Office (Destatis), prices in September 2022 increased by 2.5% compared to the previous month. At +26.0%, prices for products of plant origin increased less sharply than for products of animal origin (+49.1%) compared to the same month last year. In August 2022, the rate of change was +21.3% for crop products and +44.1% for animal products.

      The increase in prices for crop products is associated, among other things, with grain prices. In September 2022, the increase in grain prices amounted to 41.0% compared to the same month of the previous year. In August 2022, the price increase was 39.7%.

      Fruit prices fell, while vegetables and potatoes rose

      Producer prices for fruits in September 2022 were 4.7% lower than a year ago. Among other things, prices for dessert apples fell by -20.6%.

      In terms of vegetables (+22.8% compared to September 2021), the prices of cucumbers (+48.0%), cauliflower (+29.2%) and cabbage (+24.5%) increased especially. The increase in prices for table potatoes in September 2022 compared to the same month last year amounted to +73.0%.

      Prices for livestock products increased by 49.1%, for milk - by 57.5%.

      Livestock product prices in September 2022 were 49.1% higher than in September 2021. Milk prices in September 2022 were 57.5% higher than in the same month last year; in August 2022, it was +55.9% compared to the previous year. Thus, the increase in milk prices has continued since March 2021 compared to the same month last year. In July 2022, prices increased by more than 50% compared to the same month last year for the first time.

      In September 2022, animal product prices increased by 43.0% compared to September 2021. In August 2022, prices increased by 35.5% compared to the same month last year. Prices for slaughter pigs in September 2022 increased by 63.1%. This increase is mainly due to the low supply of pigs ready for slaughter, while demand remained constant. The increase in prices for cattle amounted to 21.1% compared to the same month last year. Poultry prices in September 2022 were 35.5% higher than in September 2021. This was mainly due to the increase in prices for chicken meat (+37.8%).

    DNS level blocks coming
    • The Court of Rome has confirmed that Cloudflare must block three torrent sites through its public DNS resolver. The blockade was requested by several major record labels and arrives after Italy's telecoms regulator ordered local ISPs to block the sites. Cloudflare is not pleased with the order and previously noted that such broad measures set a dangerous precedent.

      Of course, Cloudfire is happy, not sad as they tell public, as whole infrastructure of their DNS and so called "protection" had been build for later usage in censorship and blockings.

    Greta turned out to be anti capitalist
    • The teenage activist said: "We are never going back to normal again because ‘normal’ was already a crisis.

      What we refer to as normal is an extreme system built on the exploitation of people and the planet.

      It is a system defined by colonialism, imperialism, oppression and genocide by the so-called global North to accumulate wealth that still shapes our current world order."

    COVID: It makes permanent brain damage, and yes, vaccine also does this
    • It is known that coronavirus infection can cause various, including neurological, chronic conditions. In recent years, more and more studies have been published showing an increased risk of Parkinson's disease in people who have recovered from COVID-19. An important factor in neurodegenerative processes in the brain are NLRP3 microglial inflammasomes, multiprotein complexes that are responsible for the production of cytokines that promote inflammatory reactions.

      To test whether COVID-19 could promote NLRP3 activation, the scientists used a preclinical model: transgenic mice expressing human angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (hACE2). ACE2 is a membrane protein located on the cell surface and is the entry point for SARS-CoV-2. ACE2 is produced by many cell types, including not only respiratory tract cells, but also brain neurons and microglia (macrophages of the central nervous system), making them potentially vulnerable to infection. SARS-CoV-2 binds to ACE2 of human cells via the viral spike protein S.

      It turned out that the virus actually penetrated the rodent brain, where it promoted the activation of pro-inflammatory pathways involving NLRP3. A laboratory model of microglia additionally grown from human monocytes demonstrated that SARS-CoV-2 viral particles are able to bind to and enter cells, which directly causes strong inflammatory responses. Even a purified S-protein, interacting with angiotensin-converting enzyme 2, activated the NLRP3 inflammasome in microglial cells.

    COVID: It doesn't make sense at all
    • In Russia, 5781 cases of coronavirus infection were detected per day - this is the minimum number of infected people since July 20.

      Since around February COVID instantly changed its behavior. Also ruling class propaganda in all major countries changed their course.

      This can mean that virus still require centralized spread in all major cities. And as soon as you stop it it'll fade out slowly.
