A hospital in Western Michigan is hiring nurses from neighboring states who quit their jobs over Covid-19 vaccine mandates.

Spectrum Health, in West Michigan, announced that employees, including nurses and doctors, who recovered from Covid-19 and are now immune, aren't required to get the vaccine.

The announcement comes after U.S. Pres. Joe Biden declared war on unvaccinated Americans in a press conference on Friday.

Biden signed an executive order giving occupational safety agency, OSHA, the authority to fine businesses up to $14,000 per violation if they don't force their employees to get the vaccine.

According to the Detroit News, "Spectrum Health, which is in the process of merging with Southfield-based Beaumont Health, will grant an exemption to those who have a positive PCR or antigen test for COVID-19 plus a positive antibody test from within the past three months."

The hospital is the first major hospital system in the U.S. to grant exemptions to employees with prior Covid-19 infection after reviewing "new research" on Covid.

As first reported in Science magazine, a study out of Israel found that "natural infection with a prior strain of Covid-19" was 13x more effective at preventing future infection than those who are vaccinated.

The groundbreaking research study was initially ignored by the American news media. On Friday, Dr. Anthony Fauci was caught off guard when CNN's Dr. Sanjay Gupta went off script and asked how he would explain to people with natural immunity that they still need the vaccine.

Fauci's answer: "I don't have a really firm answer for you on that."

A man suffered erectile dysfunction after getting the Covid-19 mRNA vaccine. The unidentified man's wife reported he suffered the adverse event shortly after receiving the mRNA vaccine.

"My man hasn't been able to have an erection since he took the vaccine. At first I was teasing him but when I saw how distressed it made him I realized that its [sic] serious. We are going for professional consultation today. Hoping for a positive outcome."

According to goodrx.com, Covid-19 has been linked to erectile dysfunction (ED) in research studies. However, there isn't enough research to prove whether Covid-19 vaccines can cause ED.

"COVID-19 can cause swelling and inflammation in the penis. It can also damage blood vessels and lower or prevent blood from reaching tissues and organs. If blood can’t reach your penis, having an erection will be more difficult."

A small study cited by goodrx.com reports that men infected with the coronavirus had lower testosterone levels. Low testosterone levels can lead to ED.

Other risk factors for ED include obesity, age, high blood pressure, respiratory illnesses, mental illness, and diabetes.

The Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) database doesn't show any reports of ED.

The data may not be available because some men are embarrassed to report their inability to get it up after taking the vaccines.

Father's Day is this Sunday, June 20, a time for children to show their dads how much they love and appreciate them.

While the holiday pales in comparison to Mother's Day, experts say fathers are more important to a child's development than mothers.

Radio host Steve Harvey, a father of four, said this about Father's Day: "Father's Day dwarfs in comparison to Mother's Day. It's actually embarrassing. Ain't no restaurants sold out..."

And radio personality Ryan Cameron, a father of three, said Father's Day is the most disrespected holiday - and he's tired of the disrespect.

If you are a successful businesswoman, your father probably had a lot to with the direction you've taken in life.

According to childcare experts, there are many factors that influence a young girl’s future, and a good dad is the key to success

Research has shown a strong father-daughter bond may play an important role in the kind of woman a little girl grows up to be.

Girls who had hands-on fathers during their early stages of development grew up to be healthier physically, were less likely to be depressed, and were less likely to become pregnant during their high school or college years.

More than 1 in 4 children in America live in a fatherless home. 3 out of 4 children are raised in single mother households in the Black community.

But there is good news.

A recent study shows dads are spending more time with their children today than they did two generations ago.

A father's love is key to the way daughters view relationships with other men. If a father isn't there during a daughter's formative years, his absence can cause drama in her life later on.

Dr. Anthony Fauci now admits he provided $600,000 to the Wuhan Institute of Virology lab in China, where the coronavirus reportedly escaped.

House Rep. Warren Davidson called for Fauci's immediate termination as the director of the U.S. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID).

Fauci is also the chief medical advisor to the White House and a member of the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

Davidson accused Fauci of putting politics ahead of human lives.

"He has repeatedly put political science ahead of the science on COVID-19," Davidson told Fox News.

"It is long past time for Dr. Fauci to stop talking to the American public. Fauci should resign or be fired immediately."

For over a year, the mainstream news media defended and protected Dr. Fauci by placing the blame for the pandemic on President Trump.

In 2014, then-president Barack Obama ordered two U.S.-based labs to end their research into the bat coronavirus. The NIH responded by suspending 21 research studies into the bat virus.

President Obama ordered Fauci to dismantle the labs -- likely because he feared an outbreak on U.S. soil where his wife and children live.

Dr. Fauci packed up the labs and shipped everything to China. He directed funding from the NIH to Wuhan for "gain of function research" -- experiments that increased the pathogenicity (infection rate) of the flu, MERS, and SARS viruses (Covid-19 is a SARS virus).

Then Fauci made his infamous prediction that there would be a pandemic under President Trump.

A year after the pandemic forced lockdowns and mask mandates in America, the news media suddenly turned on Fauci and began reporting his link to the Wuhan lab.

At first, Dr. Fauci denied any links at all between the NIH and the Wuhan lab.

During a tense exchange with Sen. Rand Paul (a medical doctor) on May 11, Fauci claimed "the NIH [National Institutes of Health] has not ever and does not now fund gain of function research in the Wuhan Institute of Virology [WIV]."

Afterwards, the Wuhan lab suspiciously erased any mention of the NIH from its website.

Congressional lawmakers pressed Fauci to tell the truth about his involvement with the lab. He folded and admitted he directed the NIH to provide a "modest" sum to the Wuhan lab.

He vigorously denied the money went to "gain of research" experiments on bat virus.

He defended allocating $600,000 to the Wuhan lab to study the risk that bat coronaviruses could infect humans.

"It would have been almost a dereliction of our duty if we didn't study this [bat virus], and the only way you can study these things is you've got to go where the action is," he said.

"You don't want to study bats in Fairfax County, Virginia, to find out what the animal-human interface is that might lead to a jumping of species."

Fauci didn't explain why he repeatedly denied involvement with the Wuhan lab for over a year.

Florida residents are outraged that nearly 1 billion mosquitos are set to be released in the Florida Keys.

Scientists will release 750 million male mosquitos that are genetically engineered to breed with female mosquitos in the wild.

The male mosquitos are modified to carry a protein that will kill off any female offspring before they reach maturity. The experiment ensures that no female mosquitos will survive in the long run.

Any male offspring will mature and mate with female mosquitos, passing on the defective genes and slowly eliminating the mosquito population.

The project's goal is to control invasive, disease-carrying species responsible for infections such as Zika, dengue and yellow fever.

The experiment, spearheaded by British firm biotech firm Oxitec, received funding from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

Furious Florida residents are calling on the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to stop "this live experiment", which they refer to as "terrorism."

The experiment is set to begin this week, with the first phase releasing up to 144,000 mosquitoes over the next 12 weeks.

Up to a billion genetically engineered mosquitos will eventually be released in Monroe County.

Two researchers have launched a study to determine whether Covid-19 mRNA vaccines cause abnormal periods such as heavy bleeding.

Dr. Kathryn Clancy and Dr. Katherine Lee say they launched the study when they both experienced heavy menstrual bleeding after taking the vaccines.

When Clancy and Lee asked their Twitter followers to describe their abnormal menstrual cycles after taking the vaccines, hundreds of women replied.

Clancy and Lee are now compiling data from a questionnaire asking women to describe their abnormal periods. As of Monday, more than 25,000 women have completed the questionnaire, Dailymail.com reported.

In a series of tweets in February, Clancy discussed her heavy menstrual bleeding after taking the first shot of Moderna.

"I'm curious whether other menstruators [sic] have noticed changes too?" she wrote.

"I'm a week and a half out from dose 1 of Moderna, got my period maybe a day or so early, and am gushing like I'm in my 20s again. I'm on day 3 of my period and am still swapping out extra long overnight pads a few times a day. Typical for me at this time is maybe one or two regular pads."

On April 7, Clancy tweeted out a link to a survey in which women could document their menstrual irregularities.

Thrombocytopenia, or low blood platelets, was among the adverse effects reported to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) system.

Low blood platelets causes abnormal bleeding, weakness and fatigue.

Experts say Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson did not report any menstrual irregularities during their relatively short clinical trials.

They say it's too early to suggest a link between heavy cycles and vaccinations until a larger study is conducted.

The Food & Drug Administration approved the mRNA vaccines on an emergency basis.

The FDA approval allowed pharmaceutical companies to forego longterm studies of their vaccines.

A loyal reader sent this link in the hopes that it will help some of my readers to increase their sexual pleasure.

Good communication (verbal and physical) are keys to boost pleasure during vaginal penetration.

A recent study of more than 3,000 women, ages 18 to 93, revealed what women do to increase their pleasure during sex.

According to Yahoo News, the study focused on vaginal penetration, and the majority of respondents were heterosexual.

90% of respondents say they shift their hips or raise their pelvis during sex so the penis hits all four walls.

Another 76% of women said they make their vaginal penetration more pleasurable by rocking their hips, so the base of the penis rubs against the clitoris inside the vagina, rather than thrusting in and out.

70% of the women said they use "pairing," which refers to the woman or her partner reaching down to stimulate the clitoris (with a finger or sex toy) during penetration.

A new study suggests the coronavirus mRNA vaccines may not be as effective when administered to obese people.

So far, only 15% of the U.S. population has been vaccinated against Covid-19. Of that number, less than 1% are Black.

The CDC even has a term for it: Black vaccine hesitancy.

According to the news media, the vaccines are "safe and effective." Yet obese Black women are dying within hours after receiving their vaccine doses. A majority of Black women who reportedly died after receiving the vaccines are obese.

A new study out of Italy found that Pfizer's vaccines may be less effective in obese people who received both doses.

Researchers at the National Cancer Institute Regina Elena determined that obese people produced only half of the antibodies compared with people with a normal body mass index (BMI).

"Since obesity is a major risk factor for morbidity and mortality for patients with Covid-19, it is mandatory to plan an efficient vaccination program in this subgroup," the study's authors wrote.

In addition to obesity, other risk factors for Covid-19 include respiratory disorders, heart disease, diabetes, HIV and smoking.

Researchers say further studies are needed to determine why the vaccines are less effective for obesity people.

A new study recently published by a college professor finds that the American media portrayal of Black men "perpetuates many of the same, negative patterns that are common in popular culture."

Armon Perry, a professor of social work at the University of Louisville, spent two decades reviewing research on Black men and families.

The research falls into one of two categories: many Black men are "disproportionately low income," and "poor Black men reject monogamous romantic relationships in favor of a hypersexual masculinity to overcompensate for their inability to fulfill the traditional breadwinner role."

Other studies found that Black males desire intimacy and companionship in stable relationships. But the economic disparities they face in every day American society is one of the factors in their struggles to maintain stable monogamous relationships.

In his 4 year study, Perry followed 33 Black men from Louisville, Kentucky. He found that "the near-exclusive focus on low-income Black men in research related to the family skews perceptions of these men."

He found that the skewed perceptions of low income men reinforce negative stereotypes that portray Black males as dangerous and predatory.

Many of the Black men Perry interviewed credited their partners with making them better husbands, fathers and men.

According to one of the participants, "I always tell her that I couldn't have become who I am without her. Meeting the right person... is probably the most important decision I've made in my life."

Perry's findings, which counter the popular image that society holds of Black men, are published in his book: "Black Love Matters: Authentic Men's Voices on Marriage and Romantic Relationships."

Anti-vaxxers who refuse to vaccinate their children against childhood diseases are considered insane conspiracy theorists who put the health of their children at risk.

Now a ten-year study validates their fears that there may be a link to vaccines and an increase in childhood disorders.

54 percent of children and young adults in the U.S. suffer from chronic illnesses that require lifelong pharmaceutical prescriptions.

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) refused to conduct a study comparing vaccinated children with their unvaccinated peers.

So pediatricians in Oregon took it upon themselves to conduct a study after they noticed respiratory illnesses in children skyrocketing over the past 30 years.

Dr. Paul Thomas, M.D., conducted the ten year study at Integrative Pediatric that found unvaccinated children were considerably healthier than vaccinated children. The results of the study were published in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health.

The study, which followed 3,300 vaccinated and unvaccinated pediatric patients for ten years, revealed that unvaccinated children required 25 times LESS visits to the doctor for respiratory ailments than vaccinated children.

Dr. Yehuda Shoenfeld found that vaccinated children were more likely to suffer from asthma, ear infections, allergies, sinus infections and skin rashes than unvaccinated children.

The CDC recommends over 70 doses of 16 vaccines for a child before he reaches the age of 18.

Children who received 90 to 95% of the recommended vaccines were about 25 times more likely to see the pediatrician than the unvaccinated children.
