2020 Football Season
« on: May 22, 2020, 07:38:37 AM »
Well I haven't been on here really since I posted about the high levels of mental retardation around the Corona virus.  To the dipshit koolaid drinking liberal that challenged me-My observations have "aged" well.

Pennsylvania has more covid deaths over age 100 than age 45, more deaths over 95 than 60, and more deaths over 85 than 80. 

As I stated earlier, this disease is being handled incorrectly in most areas other than Florida. The elderly have to be protected.  The economy is now in shambles by the decisions of hapless politicians listening to the liberal moral agents in the media and in academia.  The economic impact will cost more lives than the virus if it stays this way for much longer.  Interestingly, these same academic people that created their modeled guidelines did not consider the economic fallout and debt that our future generations will have to pay for as a result of their great advice. This alpha risk error is on par with the costs of going into Iraq when no weapons of mass destruction existed there.  Hmmm. 

Anyway, for those above 40 years of age, this could be something that interests you. https://www.researchsquare.com/article/rs-21211/v1  They've found a link between the cytokine storm and Vitamin D3. The cytokine storm is the body's reaction to the virus that kills people with covid19 and the old Spanish flu for that matter. The study finds that it is not not only a correlation but shows causation at a .05 level of significance.  Basically for those of you who do not understand the statistics, mortality from covid19 and case rates of covid19 show causation on D3 levels.  If you are below 30 nmol/L you are screwed and cases are high. If you are above 63 nmol/L you are better off and if at 80.....well practically 0 death rate and cases. 

If you aren't on a supplement of D3 living in NE Ohio you are probably low but don't just run out and take it because you can overdose on D3 if you get over 100 nmol/L in your blood serum.  If you are an aging male, well, you probably need more than a female the same age.  If you are white and spend time in doors, you can probably take 5000 international units three to five days a week for a few months and be fine in Ohio.  If you are a person of color you may need more like 5000 units 7 days. D3 is a fat soluble vitamin that is also known as the sunlight vitamin. Fat soluble means it stores in your fat.  If you lose weight expect stored D3 in fat to be released increasing your blood serum level.  Your body also converts cholesterol into D3 but as you age the conversion efficiency is lower.  Skin pigmentation slows the conversion rate. That means if you are black you have better resistance to skin cancer but will have lower D3 levels as compared to a lighter skin person with the same amount of sun exposure...same with other races (it is not a race thing but a ecposure/pigmentation ratio thing).

This applies to anyone with higher skin pigmentation vs lower and may explain why the death rates among Blacks and Latinos is higher.  It may so explain why the death rates are so much higher in the North East.  The Vienna Arsenal was built in NE Ohio during WW2 because the cloud cover there is so constant (something like 333 days per year) they knew Spy planes wouldn't be able to find it as easily.  My point is that Florida and Georgia are not seeing the same death rates as NY and NE Ohio-they get more sun too.  It could simply be related to D3 levels plus other comorbidity factors.

Bottom line is see your doctor take your supplements demand the season is played and go to the games.  The average age of death from this virus on the USA is something like 75.  The average mortality rate in the US is around 74  down from somewhere around 82 due to the stupid heroin epidemic plaguing the area and nation as well (keep telling yourself we don't need borders). 

YSU has announced that they will resume normal classes in the fall and it is a good move.  Now we have to demand football.

The liberal media wants an economic collapse because they want Trump out of office and socialism where the predetermined academic elites make all the calls because they know better.  Power and control is all they care about and I am sick of it.  If you know how to interpret statistics this study shows a lot of variation but clear causation and the logic behind it makes sense. 

I am not a conspiracy theorist but as I see the lack of journalistic curiosity and omission of relevant, & significant information so I am beginning to believe there may be one.  Some of the moral subjects on this board are incapable of independent thought and believe everything fed to them by liberal arts major journalists with an activist cause, void of critical thinking skills, and armed with IQs running around 70.  What does that say about those who believe them?


 In new guidance, the CDC estimates that about a third of coronavirus infections are asymptomatic and 0.4% of those with COVID-19 will die.  That's on par with the H1N1 flu almost exactly which hit the country in 2009-2010.

The 2020 season should be played as it has always been.  Keep the elderly protected until vaccinations are available.  The entire thing is a scam.

 Demand football being played, lol.  You are so shortsighted.   What happens when a college football team has several players test positive?   Who is paying for the testing?  What happens when a coaching staff tests positive?

 YSU like many colleges are laying off staff and pay cuts are happening and have taken place, but you want to charter a jet and fly YSU 4 times across the country and yet there likely is no or little revenue coming into the program?  Each charter costs at least 80 thousand dollars.

 This isn't Ohio State where there are millions of dollars coming in from television contracts.

Mortality rate is 0.4% How is that any different on what happened in 2009 -2010?  We didn't stop sports for it. Same rate exactly.  The disease has been here since it November and 33% of people don't even know they have it.  A few more months and we should reach herd immunity levels.

Where are you getting that 0.4 % number from?

As of yesterday Mahoning County had 1310 confirmed cases and 162 deaths, that figures out to over 12 %.

Straight from the CDC. But in case there are some left leaning people that don't believe it (and want to confiscate business assets) here it is from your point of view.  https://www.cnn.com/2020/05/22/health/cdc-coronavirus-estimates-symptoms-deaths/index.html

But 35% don't show symptoms.  I recently saw that testing in NE ohio showed that 25% of people there are showing antibodies and that was when that type of testing was only a few days old.  They are saying now 33%-35% have antibodies.  Been in US since November.

Ok so where are you getting the 0.4%

I am getting the 0.4% from here:

Straight from the CDC. https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/hcp/planning-scenarios.html
1.5% for people 65 and older. the reason why the % looks to be so much higher is that many people have already had it or they are not showing symptoms when they had it. so the Mahoning County number is likely not a representative sample if you consider the number of cases that don't show symptoms.  BTW the 0.4% number is for the population that actually shows symptoms.

But in case there are some left leaning people that don't believe it (and want to confiscate business assets) here it is from your point of view.  https://www.cnn.com/2020/05/22/health/cdc-coronavirus-estimates-symptoms-deaths/index.html

I have known Penguin Power for almost 30 year.  He’s a hard working family man, served his country and well educated.  He is passionate in what he believes.  But he has a right to his opinion just like you and me.  We all as Americans need to be more tolerant on what we disagree on and find a common ground to solve our problems.

Certainly seems like the “solution” being implemented by big tech is to silence certain types of opinions that goes against a certain narrative. The beautiful thing of our country is our freedom of speech. There is plenty of nonsense on both sides of the aisle spewed on social media every hour. We don’t need a thought police from big tech or admins on this website to silence certain types of opinions. We need educated Americans who can see through the crap and research information to make informed opinions. Cmon man.

I find penguinpower and his posts to be extremely well researched and informative.  I also think that they provide valuable information as it relates to YSU sports.  In the United States of America, on Memorial Day weekend no less, it is bothersome to me that some are calling for him to be censored or silenced because they do not like or agree with his views.  Surely, these folks are not as compassionate and accepting of others as they may purport to be.  However, they do have the choice to simply ignore what they do not agree with. That is what makes the United States of America great.

God Bless the USA!
God Bless all of our veterans and military!
God Bless the Great State of Ohio!
God Bless the Great City of Youngstown!
God Bless Youngstown State University!

Let’s join together to make them all great again!

Stop with the race crap. I'm not a racist you are acting like one because you had to state the fact you are a minority.  How do you know I am not a minority?  I want the damn season to be played and there are good reasons for it, which, I am pointing out.  I am not a right winger either.  I am a libertarian.  The liberals are now American Communists as so eloquently pointed out by Black Conservative Candice Owens. The communists have taken over the left and the media is complicit. Keep drinking the cool aid. This disease shouldn't be shutting the economy down. There is data to prove it. We need sports to resume immediately.  Don't lack tolerance because I am stating facts that you disagree with. You can't win that argument so do as all the liberals do.....silence people or hide in your safe space.

The 2020 season needs to be played.
