BethAnn McLaughlin invented @Sciencing_Bi, a Hopi anthropologist who died of COVID-19. Source: #MeTooSTEM founder admits to creating Twitter persona who “died” of COVID-19 | Ars Technica There have been a lot of activist accounts that convinced and persuaded many and became the source of media reports – because unverified social media is among the most reliable sources used by professional media outlets.

On December 18, 2019, my Internet web hosting provider announced they are shutting down in February 2020. I am now in process of relocating my 5 web sites to a new web host (and once this is done, a 6th site located elsewhere will also be relocated).

This is the media’s usual focus on negativity by an author who makes his living on negativity.
Nobel laureate Paul Krugman after the November 2016 election: “If the question is when markets will recover, a first-pass answer is never.” Today, all three major stock indices reached record levels.
