After two years, scientists are still attempting to figure out the origin of COVID-19. There are three different theories of how the coronavirus pandemic actually started. Two of the theories involve COVID-19 beginning somewhere in Wuhan, China while the other theory states that the coronavirus actually started in the United States of America. I touched on these theories in a previous article.

On the surface, the idea that this coronavirus was transferred from an animal to a person has some traction because of various viruses in the past have transferred from animals to people like the swine flu or the…

Although the entire world has experienced the coronavirus pandemic for over 1 1/2 years, the true origin of COVID-19 has not been discovered as of yet. However, there are a couple of theories that have moved to the forefront in the media.

The first theory being bandied about is that the coronavirus came from a bat. However, that theory came from a movie called “Contagion” that was released in theaters ten years ago.

In the movie, some sort of a virus spreads over the entire world. The final scene shows how the virus started. In the scene, a bat…

Although the Stop Asian Hate campaign began in March after the spa shootings in Atlanta, the attacks on Asian people have increased over the first four months of this year. The Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism at the California State University in San Bernandino released a report earlier this month detailing the statistical data of these attacks.

The name of the report is titled “Report to the Nation: Anti-Asian Prejudice & Hate Crime. New 2020–21 First Quarter Comparison Data.

There were over two and a half times more anti-Asian attacks during the first quarter of 2021…

Congratulations for making it to the eighth month of 2021! The number eight is symbolic of a new beginning. The symbol of infinity in mathematics is a sideways eight. Infinity means that we never reach an end; we only continue to have new beginnings.

However, having a new beginning for this month will be vital for the rest of this year because we are still in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic. Plus, we will continue to remain in this pandemic because too many people choose to remain selfish.

In order to have a new beginning for August, selfishness must…

Yesterday, three schoolteachers in the state of Washington won a major lawsuit against Monsanto to the tune of $185 million (USD). The judgment was passed down by King County Superior Court.

The reason for the high dollar amount is that the fluorescent lighting at the Sky Valley Education Center in Monroe, WA, the school in which they previously taught children, was filled with polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB’s).

PCB’s are toxic chemicals that were banned in 1979 because they cause cancer. Unfortunately, these three teachers contracted brain cancer from the lights made by Monsanto.

Of course, Monsanto will not pay this because…

In the county that I live in, less than 10% of African-Americans have taken the COVID-19 vaccine. This statistic is so sad that I deem this stat the worst coronavirus statistic in the world.

I do understand why so many Black people in my area have not taken the vaccine. The examples of the Tuskegee experiment and forced sterilizations have been passed down from generation to generation.

However, in these cases, the government singled out the Black community due to the hideous ideology of eugenics. Nevertheless, this analogy does not hold water in this case regarding the COVID-19 vaccine because…

Back in 2017, the city of Spring Hill, TN bought around 75 acres of land from Monsanto in order to expand the police department within the rural town. Fortunately, nothing has been built on this land as of yet because Monsanto have been manufacturing toxic chemicals for over a century. Some of the banned chemicals that Monsanto have created in the past are DDT, Agent Orange, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), dicamba, and glyphosate.

The reason for the hold-up was due to zoning issues with Maury County. The County would be liable for building a new police station on the site. …

Hakuho returned after being out for a year due to a knee injury to win the July Grand Sumo Tournament at the Dolphin’s Arena in Nagoya, Japan. Hakuho went a perfect 15–0 over the 15-day tournament to grab his 45th Grand Sumo victory.

The Grand Sumo tournaments have been around since 1958, but Hakuho has won the most tournaments ever. Even after being out for a year, the yokozuna looked like his old self for this tournament.

However, Hakuho’s last match of the tournament on Sunday was against Terunofuji. Terunofuji previously won the last two tournaments in March and in…

When the Chicago Cubs won the World Series in 2016, I then realized that I saw something that I thought that I would have never seen in my lifetime. Before that epic Game 7 win over Cleveland, the last time the Cubs won the World Series was way back in 1908. I was grateful because there were so many Cub fans that lived before me that never had the chance to celebrate a Cubs World Series victory.

The previous ineptitude by Cubs ownership was exacerbated by the fact that the last time the Cubbies were even in the World Series…
