  1. At least the NY Times prints a retraction or a correction when they make an error. Too bad Faux News doesn't correct many of their errors or exaggerations.

  2. The Lake Chapala Shrine Club is hosting a Mini RibFest - Dine with the Shrine at Adelitas on Wednesday, March 23 from 1 PM to 4 PM. The meal is only 500 pesos with a choice of either: A half rack of Adelitas famous ribs Chicken breast Fettuccine Alfredo with chicken, or Pork Tenderloin It includes your choice of soup or salad and Cheese cake for dessert. Take out and home delivery can also be arranged. In 2021 our club paid $434,472 pesos to send 98 Lakeside children to our Shriners hospital in Mexico City and 29 Lakeside children for treatment locally or in Guadalajara. As always, there wasn't any charge to the patients' families. Please contact me or any Shriner ASAP to get tickets. They are expected to sell out quickly.

  3. https://www.antifake.ro/fact-checking-of-the-week-mrna-vaccines-are-not-gene-therapy-and-do-not-alter-human-dna/ "The full statement attributed to Stefan Oelrich is: “We are really taking that leap [to drive innovation] – us as a company, Bayer – in cell and gene therapies … ultimately the mRNA vaccines are an example for that cell and gene therapy. I always like to say: if we had surveyed two years ago in the public – ‘would you be willing to take a gene or cell therapy and inject it into your body?’ – we probably would have had a 95% refusal rate.” Facts Stefan Oelrich, member of the Board of Management of Bayer AG and head of the Pharmaceuticals Division, attended the opening of the 2021 World Health Summit (WHS) held Berlin from October 24 to 26. Official video replay of the event features Stefan Oelrich’s speech starting around the timestamp 1:29:35. In fact, some authentic sequences of Oelrich’s speech have been taken out of context and distorted to misleadingly claim that mRNA vaccines are gene and cell therapy. Stefan Oelrich’s speech focused on new technologies in the medical field and public trust in these technologies. According to Oelrich, the fact that the world population has welcomed mRNA vaccines could open the way for new technologies in the medical field such as cell and gene therapy, technologies that Bayer has studied and promoted against diseases such as anemia or Parkinson’s. Oelrich made a comparison between messenger RNA vaccines and gene therapies as an example of technological breakthroughs in the medical field. Open Fact-checking contacted Bayer, asking for clarification on Stefan Oelrich’s speech at the World Health Summit. Bayer’s official response states that there was an obvious slip of the tongue and that mRNA technology is not gene therapy. Adam Taylor, a virologist and research fellow at the Menzies Health Institute, Queensland, Griffith University, told Reuters that “gene therapy, in the classical sense, involves making deliberate changes to a patient’s DNA in order to treat or cure them. mRNA vaccines will not enter a cell’s nucleus that houses your DNA genome. There is zero risk of these vaccines integrating into our own genome or altering our genetic makeup.” Harvard Stem Cell Institute states that “gene therapy involves a process by which problematic gene sequences are replaced with healthy ones, thus stopping the evolution of a disease. Gene therapy is not used in the development of COVID-19 vaccines, since vaccines don’t replace or edit human genes. According to the Ministry of Health of Romania, COVID-19 mRNA vaccines (such as those developed by Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna) do not include any compounds that have the ability to modify a person’s DNA. The role of the messenger RNA molecule in the vaccine is to give our cells instructions to produce Spike protein, a protein to which the immune system will react by producing specific antibodies. mRNA do not integrate the virus’ DNA into the cell nucleus of its recipient and decomposes rapidly once it has achieved its goal of producing Spike protein."

  5. What utter nonsense you spout Southernguy. Gene therapy does exist but for specific purposes. NO where does the speaker in the above video say that mRNA alters your DNA. I guess you also missed the part about his enthusiasm for "Health Care for ALL". What is Human Gene Editing? | Center for Genetics and Society

  6. Gringal, I repeat. When and if there are boosters available we will post the information here. I highly doubt that the Instituto Technologia will be used again since classes have resumed AND that location is not convenient for people who do not have a car. The 1st, 2nd and booster shot clinics which were held in Parque Cristiania during the first three weeks of February were highly organized and parking was excellent. In and out in one hour for most people. Asking and asking over and over again is not going to make a difference in when they will occur.

  7. I don't know the dog rescue situation in various parts of Canada, but I had an Airbnb guest a few years ago who comes down to the PV area on holiday almost every winter, and is connected with several rescue centers in the area. She brings dogs back to Portland, Ore. where she lives and the already arranged adoptive dog owners meet her at the airport. When I said to her that surely there must be unwanted dogs that need adopting in Portland, she said no. That because people up north are responsible about getting their pets spayed and neutered, there is way more demand for rescue dogs than supply. People want a dog, but they don't want to buy from a breeder or pet store- they want to give a dog who really needs it a good home. I certainly don't see any stray, sad looking dogs who need homes running around when I go to Canada in the summer.

  10. Gringal, I too use a wheelchair for something like this since I have some knee issues and getting up, sitting down over and over is difficult. I have PMed you with the contact info for my taxi driver who has a big enough car and is strong enough to get the chair in and out of the trunk. We can do this my friend.

  12. The way for disabled people to use the Parque Christina location would at present require getting a taxi from Ajijic which could carry a wheelchair and then managing to re-contact the taxi to pick us up again. Needless to say, I couldn't help but hope that the location where I got the first and second shots would be available. I really didn't need a put-down at this point, but perhaps it was irresistible.🙃

  14. As you only require a smaller inverter, why not get one that just plugs into the cigarette lighter plug? $70 and done. Maybe an option to, running and paying for wiring. https://www.amazon.com/BESTEK-Inverter-Adapter-Converter-Charging/dp/B082MDRC64/ref=sxin_22_ac_m_mf_br?ac_md=1-0-QkVTVEVL-ac_m_mf_br_br&crid=38R7YJ3JD2O7R&cv_ct_cx=12v+inverter+pure+sine+wave&keywords=12v+inverter+pure+sine+wave&pd_rd_i=B082MDRC64&pd_rd_r=3f2d0b51-1802-47c5-89e8-728fce8196a1&pd_rd_w=6bZVs&pd_rd_wg=WpsFl&pf_rd_p=b6258265-ecb9-4cd0-8e4a-f2e587fa21a2&pf_rd_r=XEAM3M8EVSQMBH9D085N&psc=1&qid=1646454404&sprefix=12v+invert%2Caps%2C145&sr=1-1-80f20755-e051-42b5-9966-f3ac2e8a62d3

  15. Uh oh. Another discredited, right-wing misinformation site. "The Epoch Times opposes the Chinese Communist Party, promotes far-right politicians in Europe, and has championed former President Donald Trump in the U.S.; a 2019 report by NBC News showed it to be the second-largest funder of pro-Trump Facebook advertising after the Trump campaign. The Epoch Media Group's news sites and YouTube channels have spread conspiracy theories such as QAnon and anti-vaccine misinformation, and false claims of election fraud in the 2020 United States presidential election. In 2020, The New York Times called it a "global-scale misinformation machine". The Epoch Times frequently promotes other Falun Gong-affiliated groups, such as the performing arts company Shen Yun."

  16. In addition to Hector, whom I use, I also highly recommend Daniel Jackson at 29A Hidalgo ( at corner of Juarez) in Ajijic. His number is 376-766-2223. His work is better quality than Hector's, if you need more than a new watch battery. Daniel is a very caring and honest businessman and sometimes sends his work to Guadalajara, if out of his range of work. He is very reasonably priced as well.

  17. I'm not living in fear. I just take precautions. Quite frankly I don't want the flu either. On the other hand, I am selective about where I eat as well because I want food that is prepared well and in a clean environment. That's not fear, that's smart and cautious. YMMV.

  18. Does anyone know if and when there will be booster shots available on the libriamento? (The parking there is much easier for the disabled.)

  22. I could say the same things about, say, MSNBC, CNN, CBS, ABC but it would still be avoiding the question. Is the information and the study cited an honest topic of discussion or not? If accurate, that could be a huge discovery.
