Oh look, it's the Lieutenant Governor of Idaho, driving around with a gun and a Bible protesting COVID-19 restrictions while Idaho has deadliest day yet and reports second-most COVID-19 cases in single day.

On Monday, when markets opened, Regeneron stock prices surged from $564 to over $600 a share. That day, Joseph Goldstein, who sits on the company’s board of directors, and SVP and Head of Commercial Marion McCourt exercised stock options that let them sell a total of 10,200 shares for a net profit of over $1 million. According to filings, that netted about $740,000 for Goldstein and $260,000 for McCourt.
...The New York Times reported that Trump’s financial documents reveal the president’s three family trusts held investments in Regeneron as well as pharmaceutical giant Sanofi, which itself is a major shareholder in Regeneron.

The tapeworm doesn’t passively go along for this convoluted ride. When it enters sticklebacks, it somehow changes their behavior so they swim toward warmer water...
(After simulated attacks) groups of uninfected fish would flee to the bottom of the tank, to hide among the plants there. By contrast, infected sticklebacks stuck to the danger zone. “These guys, they don’t care,” says Scharsack. “If you try to scare them they hardly respond.”
Their bold behavior could also influence their peers. Like many animals that live in shoals and flocks, sticklebacks are incredibly sensitive to the actions of their neighbors. Small decisions made by individuals can translate into large collective movements by the group. And if certain individuals are infected by a mind-controlling parasite, to an extent, the group is too.
Demandt and Saus demonstrated this by repeating their experiment with mixed groups of infected and uninfected individuals. They showed that if the infected were in the majority, the uninfected ones followed them, staying in the danger zone instead of fleeing. Such indirect control has never been documented before, and might benefit the parasite. If a larger shoal of devil-may-care fish stays at the water’s surface, predators might be more likely to find and attack them, again increasing the chances that they’ll swallow an infected individual.
And what of the sticklebacks? Sticking with the group isn’t necessarily the wrong decision, given that it provides safety in numbers. But in this case, the tapeworm might be converting safety in numbers into danger for all.
...There are lessons here for humans, too. In classic experiments from the 1950s, Solomon Asch showed that volunteers could often be persuaded to give what were clearly wrong answers to simple questions if others around them—actually paid actors—answered wrongly too. In many cases, the volunteers were certain that the actors were wrong, but went along with their decisions nonetheless. A bad idea, just like a parasitic tapeworm, can also influence the minds of those who aren’t directly touched by it.

P gingivalis is attracted to saliva. It attaches to saliva and makes colonies in saliva glands.
The glands below his chin are all infested and inflamed. Probably the upper parotids too, hard to tell with that giant neck...
His amylase production and sugar metabolism has clearly been affected. Probably his arteries and prostate as well.

A while ago I wrote a post about foods that inhibit Porphyromonas gingivalis, the bacterium that causes periodontal disease, because that organism is highly correlated with Alzheimer's.
One of the things on the list was Curcumin/Turmeric- a curry spice. Well, I've finally tried it, and it's really kind of magical. I could think better overnight. Not kidding.
I have been having problems with short term memory, sequencing, lack of motivation and killer anxiety. I have been unable to accomplish complex tasks without assistance. If I could remember what I wanted to do, I was too scared to do it. I haven't felt like driving anywhere for ages.
I am now taking one capsule a day, and my brain has significantly unclenched. I am so much clearer and calmer. I can string a few thoughts together. I can do more than one thing at a time. I can alter my plans on the fly. I am not afraid of my car.
It's cheap, it's safe, and it's worth trying for yourself.
I did finally have all my teeth fixed, I don't know if it will work as well if you still have bad ones in your mouth.
Oh, and you can cook with it too, but I hate cooking and and haven't tried it yet. I think it might be better for mouth problems, though.
(one further thought- English teeth surely explain the British obsession with curry...)
