Wild deer have coronavirus antibodies

By Rachel FrittsAug. 3, 2021 , 1:58 PM

Coronavirus antibodies have been found in wild white-tailed deer in the U.S. states of Michigan, Illinois, New York, and Pennsylvania, National Geographic reports. Researchers with the U.S. Department of Agriculture tested 385 deer between January and March and detected antibodies in 40%, the team reports in a preprint posted to bioRxiv late last month. Deer are now the second species, after mink, found to have contracted the pandemic coronavirus in the wild. (Dogs and cats have contracted the virus in household settings, and other species have experienced outbreaks in zoos.) Although there is no evidence that humans are at risk of catching COVID-19 from the animals, these findings indicate deer and other wildlife might act as a reservoir for the virus, potentially letting it circulate and evolve, even if it is controlled in the human population.

Ashli Babbitt was in the act of trying to break into the Speaker's lobby when she was shot

That 1/6/21 crowd of Trump terrorists were looking for Nancy Pelosi and Mike Pence
so they could kill them in order to "stop the steal" and they really believed that half
baked Trump/Fox News lie too. She is no hero.

A ?. Did the person that TFG supported in an OH primary win yesterday?

Olympic Swimmer "shits herself" and gets the bronze .... True Story.



An Olympic medalist admitted on live TV that she was 'sh------ herself' while swimming her relay leg


Swimmer Sydney Pickrem won bronze for Team Canada in Sunday's 4×100 meter medley relay.



Pickrem said "I was absolutely sh— myself" during the swim en route to a spot on the podium.

The 23-year-old Canadian admitted that she was freaking out in a hilarious post-swim interview with CBC.

"I was absolutely sh— myself," Pickrem said on live television. "I'm not gonna try and sugar coat it."

TN Pastor tells congregation COVID Delta variant is a hoax & will throw out anyone wearing masks

Want to bet that Pastor Locke has already gotten the vaccine or if he hasn't when will he die
from the C-19 virus?



TN Pastor tells congregation COVID Delta variant is a hoax & will throw out anyone wearing masks

TN Pastor Greg Locke is the personification of a clear and present danger

Many of us wonder how it is possible that so many Americans can be so resistant to save their own lives by taking a life-saving vaccine. Tennessee Pastor Greg Locke is a clear reason.

From birth, many learned to revere Pastors and others in authority. These characters too often failed to see that responsibility comes with substantial power. And that power can be used for good or evil. And it is clear that a large plurality of the Evangelical movement has made the conscious choice to choose the latter.

This pastor told his congregation that the COVID Delta variant was a hoax. Worse, he told them he would kick them out of the church if they wore masks and urged them to go to another church if they wanted social distancing or masks.

There is a sucker born every day. Trump Raises $56 Million So Far This Year

"Much of that money was raised through a sketchy recurring donation feature that’s been accused of scamming
elderly people into making large donations."


Trump Raises $56 Million So Far This Year, More Than Every Other GOPer

Even as some party members try to divorce themselves from former President Donald Trump, it’s hard to deny he’s the party’s leader. Trump raised a staggering $56 million online through his political committees, The New York Times reports, despite not being in office. Most of that money was raised through Trump’s joint committee with the Republican National Committee, though Trump raised $21 million for committees he directly oversees. Much of that money was raised through a sketchy recurring donation feature that’s been accused of scamming elderly people into making large donations. The money was collected through WinRed, the party’s preferred fundraising medium, beating every other Republican on the platform. In comparison, Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC), the next top fundraiser, raised $7.8 million online.
