WHO suspends hydroxychloroquine trial

Posted By Maurice Clark

The World Health Organization (WHO) has suspended testing of the malaria drug hydroxychloroquine in coronavirus patients due to safety concerns, according to WHO director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus.

In an online media briefing on Monday, Dr Tedros said the "temporary pause" on the hydroxychloroquine arm of the WHO's global clinical trial had been ordered after a paper was published in a leading medical journal.

The paper, in The Lancet, concluded that people taking hydroxychloroquine were at higher risk of heart problems and death.

This one is Bizarre

Posted By Maurice Clark

This one is really weird.  2 guys arrested for breaking in to the wrong house in a sexual fantasy gone wrong.

Good the judge dismissed the case.

George Floyd's Background

Posted By Maurice Clark

Hi Darian,


You question that blacks are treated badly in the US. While I cannot comment on all I can give you anecdotal evidence of bad treatment by police.


I have friends who are both university professors. He is from Arkansas and his wife is from Alabama. They now live in Texas. Since they are moderately well off, they can afford to drive a nice car.  They have been pulled over numerous times when driving, not only in Texas, but all states between Texas and Alabama. Pulled over, not because they were doing anything wrong, but because they were suspected of driving a stolen car. Because blacks are not supposed to drive nice cars!

That is racial profiling at its worse and symptomatic of how badly treated blacks are in southern states. 

I could also relate plenty of stories from my students.

Regarding your latest image, a live donkey is better off then a dead lion.  (With apologies to Solomon!)

Of course whomever you elect would not be my president. What a ridiculous question.

Regarding your other comment, perhaps you should take some notice. Isolationist policies never helped the US.
