Cinco días después de que se iniciara la campaña de vacunación contra el coronavirus en Argentina con la vacuna Sputnik V, se han conocido los primeros resultados sobre los efectos adversos que tuvieron los que recibieron la primera dosis. Un informe publicado ayer por el Ministerio de Salud señala que de las 32.013 dosis aplicadas se notificaron 317 eventos adversos posteriores, tan solo el 1% tuvo algún síntoma que se puede relacionar con la vacuna producida por el Centro Gamaleya de Rusia.

Estas cifras corresponden a los dos primeros días de la campaña nacional de vacunación contra la Covid-19. Estos eventos adversos son los que se han notificado hasta las 23:59, hora local del 30 de diciembre, al Sistema Integrado de Información Sanitaria de Argentina (SIISA), según indicó el primer informe de vigilancia de seguridad en vacunas.

«El 44,2% de los ESAVI (eventos adversos) reportados corresponden a personas con fiebre, cefalea y/o mialgias iniciadas de 6 a 8 horas después de la vacunación», explicó.

Estos eventos están relacionados con la vacuna Sputnik V, agregó el informe, que detalla que dentro de las reacciones esperables, se pueden presentar: dolor en el sitio de inyección, hiperemia, hinchazón. Y que dentro de las reacciones sistémicas, se pueden presentar: síndrome pseudogripal de corta duración de inicio dentro de las 24 a 48 horas (caracterizado por escalofríos, fiebre, artralgia, mialgia, astenia, malestar general, cefalea) o menos frecuentes síntomas gastrointestinales (náuseas, dispepsia, disminución del apetito). «Estas reacciones tienen una duración promedio de 24 horas de duración», explicó.

Argentina inició el martes pasado el proceso de vacunación en simultáneo en todo el país con el lote de 300.000 dosis de la vacuna rusa Sputnik V recibido el jueves de la semana anterior, que se aplica al personal sanitario.

El reporte publicado hoy informó que 18 de las 24 jurisdicciones del país han notificado eventos adversos al SIISA. «El 99,3% de los eventos reportados fueron leves y moderados, que no requirieron hospitalización y evolucionaron con recuperación completa», agregó.

Con cierta desconfianza por la falta de difusión pública de la información científica de la vacuna rusa, Sputnik V, Argentina aplicó la primera dosis, que se deberá completar a partir de los 21 días con el segundo componente. La población objetivo en esta etapa es el personal de salud de grandes aglomerados urbanos,

Argentina Approves “Confiscatory” Wealth Tax On Millionaires – Activist Post

20-11-20 08:09:00,

http://www.activistpost.com/By Tyler Durden

In an early glimpse of what wealth redistribution will look among developed nations in coming years, on Wednesday the lower house of Argentina’s Congress approved a bill seeking to raise 300 billion pesos ($3.75 billion) through a tax on the ultra rich to finance programs aimed at helping families hit by the COVID-19 pandemic.

In a vote that passed 133 to 115 with two abstentions, people with more than $2.5 million in net worth – over 10,000 individuals – will make an “Extraordinary Solidarity Payment,” paying a one-off 2% flat tax. The tax would increase progressively as equity increases, under the proposal.

“The level of concentration of wealth, in a few hands, is so strong that this contribution falls on less than 0.02 percent of the population,” said government deputy Fernanda Vallejos during debate. “About half of what is collected will be contributed by only 252 people, those who are at the top of the pyramid.”

Government supporters took to the streets on Tuesday to show their support for the bill, with militant Peronist groups leading caravans of vehicles and marches on foot to Congress.

The so-called “wealth tax” or “millionaire’s tax” bill – which the opposition slammed as “confiscatory” – may face a tougher time in the Senate, which will likely consider it before the end of the month, with the Frente de Todos coalition needing allies to support it.

The one-time (for now) tax will apply to individuals whose declared assets exceed 200 million pesos (US$2.35 million), with a progressive rate of up to 3.5% for assets in Argentina and up to 5.25% on goods outside the country. According to AFP, between 9,000 and 12,000 people fall into that bracket in Argentina, a country with 40.9% of its 44 million inhabitants currently living in poverty. Unemployment stands at just over 10%, with the economy still yet to overcome a recession that began in 2018. Things have only worsened after the coronavirus pandemic, and the IMF estimates GDP will contract by 11% this year.

The bill lays out that the “extraordinary contribution” will be a one-time measure and it indicates where the funds will be sent and what they will be used for.

Argentina: Devastating Consequences of GMO-based Intensive ag on Native Amphibians – Global Research

16-12-19 08:36:00,

According the study below, soybean production in South America now covers over 57 million ha, more than on any other continent. The consequences for amphibians have been devastating, as is clear from the study highlights and abstract.

The authors conclude in their study: “Our work has triggered alarm about the detrimental impact of pesticides (insecticides and herbicides) on native amphibians inhabiting the shallow ponds of the richest agricultural lands of South America. We documented effects caused by pesticides on tadpoles which can compromise the viability of populations living in agricultural landscapes. The intensive agricultural model based on the GMO technological package currently applied in South America is expected to expand (and intensify) over the coming years. Therefore, it is also expected that native amphibian populations will continue being affected. We suggest that conservation priorities should be focused on developing a better policy legislation for pesticide use, including not only the protection of human settlements but also native terrestrial and wetland habitats.”

Pesticides in the real world: The consequences of GMO-based intensive agriculture on native amphibians

Highlights

  • Collaborative work with farmers allowed us to test pesticide impacts on amphibians.
  • Tadpole survival dramatically decreased after pesticides reached the ponds.
  • 93% of surviving tadpoles exposed to insecticides, exhibited impairment of mobility.
  • Glyphosate exposures caused sublethal effects, reducing tadpole mobility in 79% [of tadpoles].
  • We detected pesticide impacts on amphibians in real exposure scenarios.

Abstract

Pesticide use has been suggested as one of the major drivers of the global amphibian decline. Laboratory and mesocosm studies have addressed several questions to understand the mechanism by which pesticides cause detrimental effects on amphibians. However, the extrapolation of those results to natural populations may not be adequate to predict environmental impacts or to understand the role of pesticides in the amphibian decline. By using in situ enclosures, we evaluated the effects (survival and mobility) of common pesticides applied by farmers (cypermethrin, chlorpyrifos, endosulfan, glyphosate, and 2,4-Dichlorophenoxyacetic acid) on tadpoles.

Don’t Spy for Me Argentina

Don’t Spy for Me Argentina

When an incompetent US President hires as his “special envoy” for regime change in Venezuela the very same buffoon who fumbled his way into helping to expose the Iran-Contra scandal, one can expect anything.

Abrams, by helping to mistakenly wire funds he solicited from the Sultan of Brunei that, instead ended up in the Swiss bank account of a shipping magnate, brought inquisitive attention on the Iran-Contra caper by Swiss banking authorities.

The recent discovery by Argentinian judge Alejo Ramos Padilla that the Trump administration had co-opted the Argentine right-wing regime of President Mauricio Macri to target the Venezuelan state-owned oil company and the leftist government of Uruguay in a massive extortion operation bears all the hallmarks of Trump’s imbecilic special envoy for Venezuela, Elliott Abrams. While he was the Assistant Secretary of State for Western Hemisphere Affairs during the Ronald Reagan administration, Abrams, who was indicted for his role in the illegal trading of US weapons to Iran in return for American hostages held by pro-Iranian Shi’a militia groups in Lebanon, was hauled out of retirement by fellow neo-conservative John Bolton to bring about the overthrow of the government of President Nicolas Maduro in Venezuela.

During the Iran-Contra episode, the nefarious Abrams, who fancies himself as an expert on Latin America, helped use the funds collected from illegal arms sales to Iran to buy black market weapons for the Nicaraguan Contras. Abrams carried out the operation with the assistance of the Medellin drug cartel in Colombia and Panamanian leader Manuel Noriega. Abrams would have likely served a long prison sentence for his crimes had President George H. W. Bush not pardoned him and other Iran-Contra felons on Christmas Eve in 1992.

The fingerprints of Abrams, Bolton, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, and Senate Foreign Relations Western Hemisphere Subcommittee chair Marco Rubio are all over the “Extortiongate” scandal now rocking Argentina. Judge Padilla is spearheading a case against the Macri regime that involves millions of dollars being extorted by Macri allies from political opposition targets, as well as the coercion of false testimony against those targets. Padilla told the Freedom of Expression Committee of the Argentine Chamber of Deputies that what he uncovered was a “para-state network of ideological, political and judicial espionage of great magnitude,”

Argentina – Is the IMF Intervention helped by HAARP? | The Vineyard of the Saker

26-01-19 11:22:00,

By Peter Koenig for The Saker Blog

HAARP – the High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program – was initiated as an ionospheric research program, established in 1993 in Gakona, Alaska and operated by the University of Alaska, Fairbanks. It was and is funded by the U.S. Air Force, the U.S. Navy, the University of Alaska Fairbanks and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). Its alleged purpose “was to analyze the ionosphere and investigate the potential for developing ionospheric enhancement technology for radio communications and surveillance. HAARP is a high-power, high-frequency transmitter used for study of the ionosphere.”

That is the official version. HAARP was supposed to be shut down in May 2014, but then it was decided that the facility would be transferred to the University of Alaska. In reality, this sophisticated research project, owned by the military, and most probably with CIA hands in it, is continuing in some secret location, working on “ionospheric enhancement technologies”, to be used to influence weather patterns – in fact, to weaponize weather.

The first known occasion when the US air force used high power, high frequency transmitters, was to influence the intensity and duration of the monsoon during the Vietnam war in the 1960s. The idea was to render the transition of the Vietcong from North to South Vietnam on their jungle paths more difficult or impossible through extended heavy rains. To what extent this attempt was successful is not known.

However, since then, research has evolved and it is now possible to influence weather patterns throughout the world. In other words, to create droughts, floods, storm, hurricanes – wherever such weather phenomena are convenient for the purposes of empire and its vassals. Talk about man-made climate change. Imagine the amount of money that can be generated by such unsuspicious weather modifications – let alone the amount of human suffering, famine, despair – chaos, economic collapse – eventually entire segments of populations can be wiped out. And all will be attributed to ‘climate change’, which are claimed to be man-made due to our civilization’s excessive CO2 emissions. Man-made – indeed!

Extensive and prolonged changes in weather patterns can have devastating economic impacts. The Pampas, stretching over some 750,000 km2, is one of South America’s most fertile region,
