Two strongly negative views about the covid “vaccines” (one of them claims these are not vaccines at all)

When should people who've already gotten COVID-19 get the vaccine? Doctors say it depends on whether they still have symptoms.

A medical worker conducts a rapid coronavirus test in Brooklyn, New York, on August 27, 2020. Spencer Platt/Getty Images Doctors say it's generally alright for people who had a prior coronavirus infection to get vaccinated, assuming they don't have symptoms or an active infection.

SpaceX has darkened its Starlink internet satellites with visors to avoid disrupting the night sky - but they can still ruin astronomers' data

The first batch of 60 high-speed Starlink internet satellites, each weighing about 500 pounds, flat-packed into a stack prior to their launch on May 23, 2019. SpaceX via Twitter SpaceX added sun visors to its Starlink internet satellites to prevent moving lights from marring views of the night sky. The result: the visors may have darkened the satellites to 31% of their former brightness, according to a new study. That makes them mostly invisible to the naked eye, but it probably doesn't ch...

Why it's time to stop pursuing happiness

Positive thinking and visualising success can be counterproductive – happily, other strategies for fulfilment are availableLike many teenagers, I was once plagued with angst and dissatisfaction – feelings that my parents often met with bemusement rather than sympathy. They were already in their 50s, and, having grown up in postwar Britain, they struggled to understand the sources of my discontentment at the turn of the 21st century.“The problem with your generation is that you always expect to b...

Are our personalities set in stone, or can we work on – even improve – them?

Ask yourself what your ideal personality will be and, with self-awareness and repetitive practice, traits will followAt some point most of us have been assigned a neat label for our personality, as if it were a brand of clothing. It could have occurred during a job interview, for an online dating profile, or in a social-media quiz that matches your traits with a character from Game of Thrones. Or perhaps you’ve endured a conversation with friends in which everyone is declared an “introvert” or “...

Does vitamin D combat Covid?

It’s cheap, widely available and might help us fend off the virus. So should we all be dosing up on the sunshine nutrient?In March, as coronavirus deaths in the UK began to mount, two hospitals in northeast England began taking vitamin D readings from patients and prescribing them with extremely high doses of the nutrient. Studies had suggested that having sufficient levels of vitamin D, which is created in the skin’s lower layers through the absorption of sunlight, plays a central role in immun...

After 2020, anyone would be forgiven for wanting to escape Earth, and Mars, the moon and the asteroid belt beckonThis Nasa telescope, which is to replace the Hubble, has been subject to many delays – its first planned launch was in 2007.
