Where I Get My Coronavirus News These Days

How can you know what’s going on with Coronavirus if:

  1. One media outlet is spinning Coronavirus news to look bad on the Trump administration.
  2. The other media outlet is minimizing the statistics to look good on the Trump administration?

For example; Time Magazine, the Washington Post, New York Times and National Public Radio spend disproportionate amounts of time  demeaning the current administration at every turn. Their negative,  “spinny” reporting of the ‘world-ending-apocalypse-caused-by-the-president-we-don’t-like’ would make you think that we’re all going to die.

Make no mistake: There’s a Conservative narrative too, that also cripples trustworthy reporting:

CBS, CNN, Breitbart and Fox are spinning things saying that the President has got this under control – doing a great job.

How can you know how the Covid thing is unfolding, REALLY with everyone tying it to a political AGENDA?

Sadly, it’s biased and in both cases, lopsided and inaccurate.

So: I get my news two places. And they’re both OUTSIDE our establishment media.


Al Jazeera was set up to provide unbiased reporting on what’s going on in the contentious world of middle-eastern religious and political division. A world where the media is lethally controlled to silence political dissent. They couldn’t remain around as a mouthpiece for one government or another, or as a mouthpiece for one Muslim faction or another and so they’ve pretty much decided to be utterly NONpartisan religiously, politically and I USUALLY cannot tell whether they’re Muslim or not, whether they’re “for” a particular government or not. And it’s AMAZING to read articles about Trump that are DAMNING in one column, and then others that are POSITIVE in the same news outlet. To me, that’s how I know I’m on to a good news agency.

I use the Aljazeera APP because it’s easy and I get notifications I can choose to read or not.

The Epoch Times

The Epoch Times has made the owners of the major American news outlets PERSONALLY and PROFESSIONALLY interested in seeing them “dead” philosophically and fiscally. And these families and publishing moguls will probably make it happen. BUT in the MEANTIME I’m a subscriber.

Question I had: Is the EPOCH TIMES absolutely unbiased? PROBABLY NOT according to WikiPedia.org

Epoch Times Home Page

Epoch Times Youtube Channel

In summary, I think The Epoch Times is the brainchild of a spiritual Chinese guy who knows that the best way to improve life for Chinese citizens under a communist regime is a stronger, united, better-informed America. Imagine that. He’s hired a bunch of impartial journalists to debunk Chinese lies, American lies, all lies. And MSNBC hates him the very, very most.

This is The LCD Screen Scope
We Did The Tutorial With. I did a twenty page tutorial (Here's the tutorial) with video, audio, images and even little parasite movies to show you how to use a microscope. 

This Filter is Good For BIG Dirty Tanks
I've been wrestling with water quality with the turtles. The sponges work GREAT, but in THOSE turtle systems where they eat MICE the poops are bulky. This filter can handle it. In "Tortu's" tank, it's got an 800 gph pump and it rocks. 

PraziPro for Flukes
They nailed it. Figured out the solubility and worked out the dosing. It works. 

Buy Some Good Koi?
No, this isn't really for the 'high end' collector y'all. But for someone who isn't near a decent garden center, here are "good-to-quite-good" Koi you will like at a very good price. I know these guys personally.

Best Food, Ever
It's made for (and I discovered it for) my Blood Parrots but the small size, intense color enhancers and excellent formulation make it superb young-Koi food. Oh, and it's AMAZING on color-cichlids like Flowerhorn and Blood Parrots. 

Pro Air 60 Aerator is a VERY high output air pump pushing my whole fish room (17+ drops), and I have one at home driving everything there, and I have one as a back up. 

Formalin Malachite (Not dilute)
There are formalin malachite preparations at 10%, 22% and 37%. There's economy in the concentrates. Hard to get Prime shipping because air transport is curtailed. This is a good value on 32 ounces. 

Topical For Koi and Pond Fish Ulcers
I like 7% tincture of iodine because it stains but it's hard to hurt anything with it. Used with a WOVEN gauze, this works well to clean and disinfect a wound. Only use ONCE. Do not 'repeatedly' scrub wounds. 

Confectioner's Glaze 
Is the way to bind a medication to fish food. Gone are the days of paste food and oil. The write up is done, it's RIGHT HERE.

Koi Health & Disease
Hopefully this link takes you to the newest edition by PRIME to get it to your house the fastest. 

I have over ten of these Titanium Heaters in my fish room and at home. They're a paradigm shift in aquarium heating. They're titanium and 400W for under $30! Whaaaaaaaaat?

CyroPro by Hikari is safe and easy for Anchor Worms and Fish Lice.

Whatever heaters you use, back yourself up with a temperature controller, it'll turn on, and off your heaters. If your heater seizes "on" at least the thermostat will stop a tragedy. 

LifeGuard by Tetra is a tablet version of a tame 'chloramine-t' or 'halamid' compound that's easy to get and good on bacterial infections, in baths. 

If you're making medicated feed for a larger group of fish, this will come in handy. Dosing is available in the site. 

For me, filtration-of-choice
For aquariums, even small Koi holding facilities or small ponds. These sponge filters are cheap, easy to clean, and they clear hazes very well when used with some Accuclear or similar.

Rubber sided, round, nettable tanks
Make great hospital or quarantine facilities. They SHOULD cost about $200-300 depending on size, but this, lower quality unit (while panned in some reviews) may be good. Don't overfill and make sure it's propped up.

1200 Watt heater, on a thermostat held securely above the waterline, works GREAT as a large tank heater. That's all I'll say because there's risk of electrocution and all that. But then, even in a bucket you could get killed. Sound like fun?
I have several of these ALLIED PRECISION stainless ones that are a couple years old. Working still. 

Potassium Permanganate 
500 grams could be a lifetime supply but it's 50% more than the 100g cost wise, for 500% more amount. Dosing is in the site and the book.

What Does Ajax Eat?
I looked for something well formulated, with meat as the first ingredient. Something UNDER $2/lb and something they could deliver for free. And this was it. He looks and feels great on it.
