Firestarter, Joe Rogan, talked about Ivermectin. The reaction to it by his critics, including calls for censorship, turned Joe's personal health-based observation into a media blaze of telling off's. All because he took what he could, to recover from a cold and designated 'C-19'.
One of the virtues of meta-analysis is that it allows conclusions to be adjusted with changing evidence. One Randomized Controlled Trial included in the BIRD Group's meta-analysis of Ivermectin has been challenged in The Guardian. It is unclear if the study in question is fatally flawed. In this clip, Tess Lawrie shows us what happens to the meta-analysis when the suspect study is eliminated. Answer: the estimate of the medication's effectiveness change somewhat (prevention of death drop's from 62% to 49%. Prophylactic effectiveness goes up slightly from 86% to 87%. Confidence intervals become somewhat wider). The conclusion of the analysis remains the same: Ivermectin reduces deaths substantially and is a very effective preventive measure against the contraction of COVID-19.
The murderers at West Chester Hospital in Cincinnati would rather patients die than to treat them with Ivermectin. This is how crazed and brainwashed the Medical establishment is. A judge had to intervene to force the hospital to give Ivermectin treatment to a dying patient. In America to get competent medical treatment requires wining a court case.
To say that Patchen was not a natural draughtsman is an understatement. He was not a draughtsman at all. There is nothing in any of his pictures that indicate that he could have drawn anything from life. There are no human faces that are more than simple daubs.
What he did have was that most vital quality in the visual artist's tool kit: authority. Did he aspire to draw better? There is no reason to believe it. His pictures did not evolve over the decades. What he drew, he drew, and there it was, solid and real. Is it enough? It is everything.
