Killer whales unleashed a war with sailboats, carrying out targeted attacks



Orcas have attacked and sunk three boats off the coast of Europe
since 2020, and scientists think the behavior is spreading among the
population through social learning, reports

orcas, also known as killer whales, have mainly targeted sailboats,
making a beeline for the rudder and piercing it with their teeth.
Experts believe that a traumatic event may have triggered a change in
the behavior of one orca, which the rest of the group has learned to

The first reports of aggressive encounters with orcas off
the Iberian coast began in May 2020 and are becoming more frequent,
according to a study published in June 2022 in the journal Marine Mammal

Most encounters have been harmless, but three boats have
sunk after being damaged by orcas. The latest incident happened on May
4, 2021, when three orcas struck a yacht in the Strait of Gibraltar and
sank it at the port entrance.

Orcas are social creatures that can easily learn and reproduce behaviors performed by others, according to the study.

some cases, witnesses have reported seeing a mother orca teaching her
calf how to charge into the rudder. Orcas have also been observed
imitating each other’s techniques and taking turns to attack a boat.

think that a traumatized orca may have initiated the assault on boats
after a “critical moment of agony” and that the behavior is spreading
among the population.

The orca, named Gladis by researchers, was
severely injured by a harpoon in 2019 and may have associated boats with
pain and danger. Gladis was part of a group of orcas that frequented
the Strait of Gibraltar and interacted peacefully with boats for years
before the attack.

study suggests that Gladis’s experience may have influenced her
behavior and that of her group members, who may have perceived boats as a
threat or a challenge.

The researchers also propose that the
orcas may be expressing frustration or boredom due to changes in their
environment, such as reduced food availability, increased boat traffic,
or noise pollution.

The researchers hope to better understand the
motivations and consequences of the orcas’ behavior and to find ways to
prevent further conflicts with boats. They also urge people to respect
the orcas’ space and avoid disturbing them.

Experts Declare Experimental Cancer Vaccine Based On mRNA Technology Is ‘Safe and Effective’




A new cancer vaccine based on Covid mRNA vaccine technology
which has yet to be clinically tested has already been declared “safe
and effective” by the British government.

Known as ‘LungVax’,
the new vaccine is being developed by the University of Oxford, the
Francis Crick Institute and University College London, and is expected
to be the first of a huge range of new cancer vaccinations available in
the near future.

Research scientists developing the ‘groundbreaking’ lung cancer
vaccine claim it will be effective in preventing up to 90 per cent of
cases by training the immune system to locate and attack early signs of

Lung cancer cells look different from normal cells due to having ‘red
flag’ proteins called neoantigens. The LungVax vaccine will carry a strand of DNA which trains the immune system to recognize these neoantigens on abnormal lung cells.

It will then instruct the immune system to destroy these cells and stop lung cancer.

Professor Tim Elliot, lead researcher at the University of Oxford, said: ‘Cancer
is a disease of our own bodies and it’s hard for the immune system to
distinguish between what’s normal and what’s cancer. 

‘Getting the immune system to recognize and attack cancer is one of the biggest challenges in cancer research today.”

Elliot admitted the new vaccine is based on technology used to create the Covid vaccine.

‘This research could deliver an off-the-shelf vaccine based on
Oxford’s vaccine technology, which proved itself in the Covid pandemic.

Remarkably, given the disastrous health consequences for those
vaccinated with the experimental Covid vaccines, Eilliot praised the
mRNA roll out as a success.

‘If we can replicate the kind of success seen in trials during
the pandemic, we could save the lives of tens of thousands of people
every year in the UK alone.’

Researchers have been granted up to £1.7 million from Cancer Research UK and the CRIS Cancer Foundation.

The team will receive funding for the study over the next 2 years to
support lab research and initial manufacturing of 3,000 doses of the
vaccine at the Oxford Clinical BioManufacturing Facility.

If successful, the vaccine will move straight into a clinical trials,
involving those at biggest risk of disease, such as current and former
smokers who currently qualify for targeted lung health checks in some
parts of the UK.

TV Host Demands Gov’t ‘Take Control’ of Elon Musk’s X To ‘Shut Down’ Conspiracy Theories




Elon Musk’s X must be “shut down” by government because dangerous “conspiracy theories” are spreading on the social media platform, according to British TV host Jeremy Vine.

“If there any argument to say, and this will sound crazy, but
China does it, we’ve got to now take control of Twitter and shut it down
for the time being,”
said Vine.

Vine made the comments earlier this week during a heated debate
regarding speculation surrounding the health and whereabouts of Kate
Middleton, the Princess of Wales.

‘We’ve now got to take control of Twitter’…..???????????? ⁦

Boomers have become obsessed with speculating that Middleton has died or is severely unwell and that the Royal Family is hiding it because she hasn’t been seen in months after an operation.

The manipulation of a series of photo of Middleton and her children also only served to fuel the rumors, as some sources close to the princess claimed she had been murdered by the royal family.

However, instead of dismissing the whole issue for what it is, a pointless distraction that will disappear once Middleton makes a public appearance around Easter, Vine called for draconian measures.

Modernity report:

Ah yes, the Communist dictatorship of China, which shuts down the Internet to clamp down on dissent and enhance its repression of undesirables.

That’s definitely who we should be mimicking, Jeremy.

Throughout the COVID pandemic, Vine’s show was a platform for some of the most vulgar, authoritarian drivel imaginable.

One show asked if children who are unvaccinated should be banned from schools or made to wear special badges.

Another asked, “Is it time to ban the unvaccinated from traveling?”

Vine has made a name for himself as being a dutiful amplifier of regime messaging, while his annoying side hobby of biking around London looking to film confrontations with motorists has also angered many.
