What makes Covid-19 potentially lethal is the activation of the inflammasome triggering the dreaded “cytokine storm”. Vitamin C, melatonin and simple humming have been shown to silence the NLRP3 inflammasome. Where Melatonin is not available, bee propolis can be substituted.

The furin cleavage allows efficient virus entry into basically all cell types, making the COVID-19 easily transmissible at rates up to 1,000 times greater than the virulent SARS coronavirus. Andrographis (herb) paniculata is a powerful anti-furin strategy and should be utilized early in the treatment of infected or suspected individuals! Vitamin C has also been shown to have anti-furin properties.

For those of you who missed it, very, very bad news. Please help! A bill passed yesterday to change the definition of employee across the Board for WV laws (specifically including laws protecting the disabled, religious freedom, gender and race discrimination, harassment and more), making classification of workers as independent contractors much more likely. Despite my personally telling senators that it conflicts with the Fair Labor Standards Act, Senator Trump only changed senate bill 528 to make clear that UBER workers are independent contractors. Trump came on strong. He had a truck lobbyist explain how a trucking company was audited and owed $200,000 to workers comp. No Senator asked what the gross income of the company was... This means no more workers comp for injured workers, and no unemployment benefits. It is going to the WV House for passage and we really need strong opposition. Please have folks write letters or call their WV house delegates ASAP to stop this bill from becoming law! Thank you.

How bad does forced arbitration get? Elite private school tries to silence sexual assault survivor:

HuffPost exposed how an elite private school in California is forcing a student into arbitration after he was sexually assaulted and preyed upon by his teacher. Parents at the school expressed outrage as they realized that if “a school was negligent on child rape, that would be covered under an arbitration agreement”.

Got Bedbugs? Got forced arbitration. How sad is this?

Believe it or not, customers who purchased furniture from the online retail company WAYFAIR that was infested with BEDBUGS are being forced into arbitration! Law360 and MarketWatch wrote about the story and quoted AAJ’s Julia Duncan who said that “[t]he case was ‘a shining example of how far forced arbitration has gone to deprive you any sort of hope of holding a company accountable.

Recently, JPMorgan Chase announced that it will now require customers to be forced into arbitration for any claims. AAJ has created a petition demanding that Chase end their use of forced arbitration. Please sign and retweet the petition. http://takejusticeback.com/

Public and Congressional outrage was swift with Congresswoman Katie Porter (D-CA-45) calling out the bank on twitter and following up with a letter to JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon chastising the bank for its anti-consumer practice. Senators Harris (D-CA) and Blumenthal (D-CT) also wrote a letter to Dimon urging that the bank withdraw their forced arbitration clause. The press response was significant, with the NY Times, Bloomberg, LA Times, Business Insider and other outlets reporting on it.

The Supreme Court dealt a blow to millions of workers Monday. Would you consider that your vote impacts who is on the court and how our country's laws are interpreted? So many of these workers are parents.

What's good for the goose, is good for the gander. This week, Michael Brennan is supposed to get a committee vote for 7th Circuit Court of Appeals judge. Brennan is filling a vacancy from Wisconsin and Senator Tammy Baldwin (D) did not return her blue slip. Wisconsin's other senator, Sen. Johnson (R), returned his. This is a vacancy that sat empty for over 6 years and during nearly all of President Obama's two terms, in large part because Sen. Johnson refused to return his blue slip for Obama's nominees. As a matter of great irony, Michael Brennan (the current nominee), who is hyper-partisan, wrote an op-ed with regard to the blue slip in 2011, saying that it was appropriate for Ron Johnson to block the nomination of Victoria Nourse (Obama's nominee) to the Seventh Circuit by not returning his blue slip. Brennan emphasized that Senators Herb Kohl and Russ Feingold "had their say in Nourse's first nomination" and "Johnson should have his say." Brennan wrote, "[t]here are now two senators from Wisconsin from different political parties, so to exclude Johnson and those citizens who voted for him would be a purely partisan move.

Now, this man wants the Senate to disregard the blue slip. Please call your Senators and ask them to oppose Brennan on the grounds that the blue slip process is being ignored. This is particularly important if your senator sits on the Judiciary committee. And if you have friends/family/colleagues in Arizona who can call Sen. Flake or Louisiana who can call Sen. Kennedy, please, please ask them to call today! The vote is supposed to take place Thursday.
