Is the world due for an influenza pandemic?

It is very likely that new pandemic influenza viruses will emerge, but we have no good model for predicting such an event and for gauging the severity of the next pandemic.

Trump signs pandemic preparedness bill into law 6/26/19

President Donald J. Trump this week signed the Pandemics and All-Hazards Preparedness and Advancing Innovation Act, or PAHPAI, into law.

“Now, Congress must match this authorization with strong investments in BARDA so the agency can deliver innovations against the full spectrum of health threats we face.”

…the report illustrates the progress that can be made for children’s health by addressing school nutrition…

The Academy [American Academy of Pediatrics] will continue to advocate for policies that expand access to healthy foods for children and families.

The mission of the American Academy of Pediatrics is to attain optimal physical, mental, and social health and well-being for all infants, children, adolescents and young adults.

In case you missed it, natural selection for food energy-dependent codon optimality links the pheromone-controlled physiology of reproduction from the light-activated assembly of the microRNA-RNA-peptide nanocomplex to the fixation of RNA-mediated amino acid substitutions in what children eat to fixation of COMT Val158Met, which has been linked to prevention of suicide and the prevention of mass killings via the non-invasive measurement of difference in metabolism linked to the dopaminergic reward neuronal system.

The dopaminergic reward system is intricately connected to the other neuronal systems that link what infants eat to their behavior via microRNAs in the milk exosomes of all mammals.

A progressive left-wing Democrat and spiritual leader who wants to give reparations to black people talks about “A Politics of Love” and tells us that President Donald Trump has no ethics. When I tried to comment, I got this notice:

The anti-entropic force of virucidal ultraviolet light links guanine–cytosine (G⋅C) Watson–Crick base pairing from hydrogen-atom transfer in DNA base pairs in solution to supercoiled DNA, which protects the organized genomes of all living genera from virus-driven entropy. For example, protection of DNA from permanent UV damage occurs in the context of photosynthesis and nutrient-dependent RNA-directed DNA methylation, which links RNA-mediated amino acid substitutions to DNA repair. In the context of thermodynamic cycles of protein biosynthesis and degradation, DNA repair enables the de novo creation of G protein coupled receptors (GPCRs). Olfactory receptor genes are GPCRs. The de novo creation of olfactory receptor genes links chemotaxis and phototaxis from foraging behavior to social behavior in species from microbes to humans. Foraging behavior links ecological variation to ecological adaptation in the context of this atoms to ecosystems model of biophysically constrained energy-dependent RNA-mediated protein folding chemistry. Protein folding chemistry links nutrient-dependent microRNAs from microRNA flanking sequences to energy transfer and cell type differentiation in the context of adhesion proteins, and supercoiled DNA that protects all organized genomes from virus-driven entropy.

Are progressive left-wing Democrats and spiritual leaders who want to give reparations to black people and talk about “A Politics of Love” responsible for claims like this: There is no actual respectable academic degree for “medical laboratory scientist,” emeritus or otherwise and censorship by Google?

Who might not want you to know that this group challenged the biological basis for all biodiversity on Earth in the context of laboratory testing that “…coupled direct techniques of cryoelectron microscopy and fluorescence microscopy with techniques of NMR spectroscopy, centrifuge filtration assays, and turbidity measurements.”

See: Prebiotic amino acids bind to and stabilize prebiotic fatty acid membranes 8/12/19

Repeat after me: They found

“…that a set of unmodified, prebiotic amino acids binds to prebiotic fatty acid membranes and that a subset stabilizes membranes in the presence of salt and Mg2+.

Furthermore, [they found] that final concentrations of the amino acids need not be high to cause these effects; membrane stabilization persists after dilution as would have occurred during the rehydration of dried or partially dried pools. In addition to providing a means to stabilize protocell membranes, [their] results address the challenge of explaining how proteins could have become colocalized with membranes. Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins, and our results are consistent with a positive feedback loop in which amino acids bound to self-assembled fatty acid membranes, resulting in membrane stabilization and leading to more binding in turn. High local concentrations of molecular building blocks at the surface of fatty acid membranes may have aided the eventual formation of proteins.

Amino acid composition of proteins varies substantially between taxa and, thus, can evolve.

If you find a medical professional who believes that the amino acid substitutions that differentiate all cell types in all living genera somehow evolved their compositions in proteins, report that person to their supervisor. If the supervisor does not declare the so-called professional to be incompetent, report the supervisor to the pathologist who is in charge of the medical laboratory in the appropriate facility. Stop these people before they kill someone you love with their examples of human idiocy.
