Face Masks Cause COVID-like Symptoms . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 21 June 2020

  • I FOUND PAPER MASKS CAUSED ME TO COUGH SPORADICALLY
  • I FOUND COTTON FABRIC FACE MASKS CAUSED MY LUNGS TO PRODUCE PHLEGM (MUCUS)

Image: “These are the face masks often used to prevent the spread of Coronavirus. They are used in countries with coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreaks and are worn in hospitals as well as in public. They are not designed to protect the wearer from inhaling airborne bacteria or virus particles and are less effective than respirators, such as N95 or FFP masks,” by Nurse Together, in Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Surgical_mask#/media/File:Surgical_face_mask.jpg … CC BY-SA 4.0

Dear Ones,

As people in Los Angeles are required to wear face masks in public because of the COVID-19 pandemic, I have been testing various masks while out and about town, and have found that I am experiencing COVID-like symptoms while wearing a face mask and shortly thereafter.

I FOUND PAPER MASKS CAUSED ME TO COUGH SPORADICALLY

In my own experience, I found when I wear the type of paper mask that is rectangular with folds I would cough sporadically. This I find an embarrassment when in a store, and also a concern, as a cough can result in expulsion from a store through the owners’ fear that I might have COVID.

Here is the type of mask I found caused me to cough sporadically when I wore it …

I refer here to the style of paper mask and not the specific brand of mask in the image, as I have only tested one brand so far.

I FOUND COTTON FABRIC FACE MASKS CAUSED MY LUNGS TO PRODUCE PHLEGM (MUCUS)

I have more to report regarding the cotton fabric face masks sold online. I have tried two kinds so far, each with two layers of fabric; one had horizontal pleats and the other did not …

Images of cotton fabric face masks … https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/61zt1-WgSbL._SL1200_.jpg  … and …  https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/81uF0e2Oa7L._AC_SL1500_.jpg ..

For me, these did not cause coughing, but they did cause production of thick, clear phlegm (mucus) that came up my windpipe and which I then needed to swallow. The phlegm production would start shortly after I donned the fabric masks, and would continue for some while after I took the fabric masks off.

I realize experiencing these symptoms while wearing paper or cloth masks, or for a while after taking them off, may cause concerns that the symptoms are caused by the coronavirus. In my case, though, I can vouch for the fact that both the coughing and the production of clear phlegm apparently have to do with wearing the masks.

I hope my experience in this regard will be reassuring to others. I feel one way to ascertain the cause might be to notice whether the symptoms only occur during and shortly after mask use. That is just my hunch; of course the thing to do, to be on the safe side regarding COVID-like symptoms is to seek competent medical advice.

I could conjecture that the paper masks might have tiny bits of paper in them that might be inhaled into the windpipe and might cause a tickle that triggers a cough. I might also guess that the effort of breathing through a fabric mask might make heat build up in the lungs, causing the phlegm normally within them to become more liquid and consequently to flow upward more freely. These, though, would be but conjecture, and hardly worth the telling.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

Dear Ones,

Here is a video on a diet that may help alleviate COVID-like symptoms. There is an edited Summary after the video …

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

For those of you that develop COVID-19 symptoms or are diagnosed positive for the coronavirus and have the symptoms, I have a hint that may help diminish the harshness of the symptoms.

Here Were My COVID-Like Symptoms

On 4 March 2020 I began to develop physical symptoms I had never experienced before. At first I felt a thrumming in my gastrointestinal tract, and then a thrumming in other parts of my body. It felt as if my gut brain had sensed something awful in the air, and that my body was somehow concocting remedies for a threat it sensed … whether within my body, or merely in the air, I could not tell.

A day or so thereafter I felt a few sharp pinprick aches randomly here and there in my body. The next day I felt chills coursing through my body, but I had no fever.

In the ensuing days, I felt very great fatigue, such that all I wanted to do was sleep for days. There was a half day of gastrointestinal tract uneasiness. Then whatever it was settled as a moderate cold in the bronchial tubes and lungs, producing lots of mucus or phlegm.

A few days later I found I could get out of bed and walk a few steps without very great fatigue. After that each day was better. I was on the mend. Little by little, I began walking in the neighborhood. Then I went on to moderate mountain hiking.

Then I had a symptom that really worried me: I fell asleep one night, and then woke up to my upper airway popping closed, slightly stuck together with mucus, it seemed. Then as I inhaled it popped open. As to my recollection I had never had such a symptom before, I thought I had best try to find out what was up with that.

What Doctors in the United States Are Calling Symptoms Such as Those I Had

I stopped by one of the local hospitals, and they said my symptoms did not fit their description of COVID-19. They thought I might have symptoms of anxiety. They said they were getting lots of cases of anxious people coming to the hospital … people who thought they had COVID-19 but, they said, did not have it. So they sent me on home.

On the other side of the coin, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) a great many people in the United States have died this year of causes not diagnosed as COVID-19. Of the 99,000 ‘excess deaths’ that the CDC predicts for 2020, about 32,300 deaths are not diagnosed as COVID-19 …

Link: “COVID-19 Tidbits: ‘General Pandemonium’ Deaths for the United States?” by Alice B. Clagett, written and published on 22 May 2020 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-ihj ..

It seems to me that people with mild COVID-19 symptoms may be going to the doctor or to the hospital, and then diagnosed as anxious, then going home and dying at home of respiratory failure due to COVID. I feel this theory is worth investigation, and hope the hospitals here in the United States will consider it.

A Diet That Helped Alleviate My COVID-Like Symptoms

For those for whom Western medicine has no remedy, I have this to offer: During the course of my March 2020 illness, I found that eating certain foods caused an immediate adverse reaction. It was as if, in the space of a few minutes, alarm bells were ringing all over my body. I would go from feeling not too good, but manageable symptoms, to desperate physical distress in but a moment.

For me, some of the foods that caused this adverse reaction were mucus-forming foods such as wheat flour or dairy; animal protein (fish, chicken, or red meat); solid foods of any kind; refined sugars; alcohol; and foods with chemicals in them.

For me, at first I switched to small amounts of water daily, and that alone. Then a little later, what I could eat was a small amount of broth from boiled or steamed vegetables. Then after a week or so, I could eat a tablespoon or so of watered down bean or lentil soup, with tender, well cooked vegetables mixed in. Days later, I could eat half a cup of the soup.

Thus through very careful diet I was able to alleviate the symptoms of the COVID-like illness I had.

How My Health Is, Three Months After Onset of COVID-Like Symptoms

Today, more than three months after onset of COVID-like symptoms, my diet is more like what used to be normal for me. But I find I want to eat much less food, and I still prefer to avoid sweets, wheat flour, and dairy products.

My physical endurance is back to normal. I am masked but out and about Los Angeles and the surrounding mountains daily.

Thoughts on Gaining Immunity From a COVID-Like Virus

I have slightly more mucus or phlegm production by the lungs and bronchial tubes than is normal. My feeling is that this may be a good thing; I may still be encountering coronavirus in the air, here in Los Angeles, but I may have developed immunity to the virus, and the mucus or phlegm from the lungs may be proof that my body is now well able to quell the virus.

Could Diet Be the Cause of Very Different COVID Impact, Country to Country?

I have been following the World Health Organization’s daily situation reports on COVID …

Link: “Coronavirus Disease (COVID-2019) Situation Reports,” by the World Health Organization … https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019/situation-reports ..

I could not but be amazed at the differences in the numbers of cases and deaths from COVID from nation to nation. It occurs to me that the diet of the peoples of some nations may promote alleviation of COVID-like symptoms. Especially I wonder if the diet of the peoples of some nations may alleviate mucus or phlegm production during pneumonia, and thus help prevent COVID deaths in those countries?

Conclusion

I know we here in the West think less of diet as medicine than do the peoples of the developing countries of the world. That may be because we have universal health care and the benefits of Western medicine.

In the case of COVID-like symptoms, it might be helpful for the people of the United States to turn to diet as medicine. Maybe we could take a look at the diet of people in countries that have been less affected by COVID than has been the United States.

As well, I hope my explanation of a diet that worked for me will be of interest and even maybe of help to those who have coronavirus-like symptoms in the coming year.

I hope everyone will be able to avoid the worst of the COVID-like symptoms through whatever diet works for them, through rest if fatigue sets in, and through God’s graceful kindness in answer to our prayers.

In love, light and Joy,
I Am of the Stars

Western States Pact and Possible Decentralization of the United States . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 2 June 2020

  • FORMATION OF THE WESTERN STATES PACT
  • POSSIBLE DECENTRALIZATION OF THE UNITED STATES INTO LOOSELY FEDERALLY RULED ECONOMIC REGIONS IN YEARS TO COME
    • Decentralization Stressors
      • COVID-19, AIDS, and Less Federal Revenues
      • The Price of Water and the Potential Need to Grow Crops
  • COVID-19 LOCKDOWNS VERSUS THE COMMON GOOD

Dear Ones,

FORMATION OF THE WESTERN STATES PACT

As you may know, a Western States Pact has been formed in response to the COVID-19 issue. To date, the states involved are Washington, Oregon, California, Colorado, and Nevada …

Link: “Colorado & Nevada Join California, Oregon & Washington in Western States Pact,” 27 April 2020 … https://www.gov.ca.gov/2020/04/27/colorado-nevada-join-california-oregon-washington-in-western-states-pact/ ..

This is a power block or united front asking for financial help from the federal government in response to the impact of COVID-19 on their states’ economies.

POSSIBLE DECENTRALIZATION OF THE UNITED STATES INTO LOOSELY FEDERALLY RULED ECONOMIC REGIONS IN YEARS TO COME

While this power block has a focused purpose, it does present a small step towards consolidating a Western economic region, in a way that is reminiscent of this possible timeline for relative decentralization of the United States into economic regions, with less control by a federal government as a possibility in years to come …

Link: “What If: Will the United States Become Less Centralized?,” by Alice B. Clagett, written and published on 6 December 2019 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-fnm ..

Decentralization Stressors

COVID-19, AIDS, and Less Federal Revenues. Among the stressors, in the current scenario, would be COVID-19 affecting the current economy of the large United States cities; AIDS (which prevents having viable offspring) affecting the Eastern Seaboard economic region (which is hard hit by AIDS) first, and other regions later; and in the short term, inability of the federal government to provide financial aid because of decreased tax payments next year because of unemployment caused by lockdowns this year.

The Price of Water and the Potential Need to Grow Crops. In addition, here in Los Angeles the price of water has made it untenable to raise crops; water prices may rise elsewhere in the United States as well. For those in the cities, I suggest a power block lobbying for reasonably priced water. For those who can move away from the cities, I suggest moving to regions of plentiful rainfall, so that a sustainable or survival-oriented lifestyle can be maintained if necessary.

COVID-19 LOCKDOWNS VERSUS THE COMMON GOOD

My feeling is that riots and curfews are happening in New York, Los Angeles and elsewhere because people who have no savings have been prevented from making a living by lockdowns in the urban areas of the United States. My hope is that our mayors and governors will see the wisdom of balancing relatively few lives lost through COVID-19 against social unrest caused by inability to get work.

Italy, for instance, was very hard hit by the epidemic, yet their people are going back to work and reopening churches. In addition, Dallas, Texas is doing so. From available news, the resurgence of COVID-19 in Wuhan, which reopened for business a while ago, has been far less in numbers than the good caused by the ability of the people to feed and clothe themselves.

In other words, I feel that, in terms of lockdown or return to normalcy, we must weigh the common good against our fears regarding possible, but as yet unproven, negative outcomes. For all we know, the worst is over, and better days lie just beyond the horizon, nearly within our ken.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

Los Angeles Residents – Get Work in Ventura County? . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 30 May 2020

Dear Ones,

This post is for residents of Los Angeles who need to go back to work and have been prevented by the lock down order in Los Angeles. Surely Los Angeles cannot entirely prevent our young people and those of us who are cannot work from home from earning an honest wage.

I see that Ventura County has opened up more possibilities for employment; for instance, it is allowing restaurants to have dine-in service …

Link: “Ventura County gets state OK for more reopenings, including dine-in restaurant service,” 20 May 2020 …  https://abc7.com/reopening-california-ventura-county-reopens-restaurants/6200097/ ..

Why not get work in Ventura County until the Los Angeles lock down ends?

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

Danger for Hikers and Campers in Ventura County? . by Alice B. Clagett

Excerpted on 28 May 2020 from a blog published on 29 September 2019

  • DANGER FOR HIKERS AND CAMPERS IN RURAL VENTURA COUNTY AND LOS ANGELES COUNTY?
  • NEED FOR INTER-COUNTY LAW ENFORCEMENT LIAISONS AMONGST COUNTIES ADJACENT TO THE CITY OF LOS ANGELES

Dear Ones,

DANGER FOR HIKERS AND CAMPERS IN RURAL VENTURA COUNTY AND LOS ANGELES COUNTY?

In the last few years, I have clairly listened to several astral stories while exploring the byroads and hiking trails of Ventura County north of Ojai and of Los Angeles County north of Santa Clarita. What intuition very strongly tells me is that those of us who hike and camp in rural areas of Ventura County and Los Angeles Cunty are in danger of thefts from our parked vehicles (including theft of electronics, personal items, and tires); theft of the vehicles themselves; burglary of equipment from our tents; and apparently possible violent loss of our lives so that thieves may market our stolen goods and cars without being caught out.

I feel what intuition tells me is greatly increased danger in this regard may have to do with higher water costs for Ventura County and Los Angeles County rural residents, the need for food and firewood for their homes, and the need for feed and water for their livestock. It seems to me reasonable, if these crimes are occurring, to try to find out if local Ventura County and Los Angeles County residents have a hand in it.

NEED FOR INTER-COUNTY LAW ENFORCEMENT LIAISONS AMONGST COUNTIES ADJACENT TO THE CITY OF LOS ANGELES

It is possible that, because of increasing economic stresses in California, residents of small towns and of rural areas … including their law enforcement agencies … may be beginning to band together to protect themselves from outsiders, and to profit by occasional raids on tourists and visitors such as I describe above.

I ask that law enforcement for counties adjacent to the City of Los Angeles reach out, each to the other, so as to form as close bonds of cooperation and information exchange as possible. In that way, we can keep Southern California strong and safe for everyone.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

The above concerns are derived from intuition and clair perception; they cannot be said to be factual in any regard unless facts are found that support the ‘astral intel’.

COVID-19 Tidbits: Death Rate for California for 2020 To Date . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 22 May 2020; updated on 19 June 2020

[As of 19 June 2020 the death rate for California, using the below source updated, is 5,355 California COVID-19 deaths / 39,510,000 California population x 100 (to get percent) = 0.014 percent California COVID-19 death rate for 2020 to date. That is to say, COVID-19 deaths for California for 2020 to date are still one hundred times less than about 1 percent of the population.]

Dear Ones,

I crunched the numbers, and found the total COVID-19 deaths in California for 2020 to date to be much less than I thought..

There have been 3,609 California COVID-19 deaths to date …

Link: “Tracking coronavirus in California,” by Los Angeles Times Staff, updated 22 May 2020 9:03 am Pacific … https://www.latimes.com/projects/california-coronavirus-cases-tracking-outbreak/ ..

39,510,000 population of California, per Google

Here is my calculation ..

3,609 California COVID-19 deaths / 39,510,000 California population x 100 (to get percent)  = .009 percent California COVID-19 death rate for 2020 to date.

That is to say, COVID-19 deaths for California for 2020 to date are one hundred times less than about 1 percent of the population.

The same formula can be used to determine the death rate for other states, by plugging in the numbers from this New York Times article …

Angel of Death Has Left Los Angeles . a vision by Alice B. Clagett

Dear Ones,

ALICE’S VISION: ANGEL OF DEATH HAS LEFT LOS ANGELES

On Monday, 29 March 2020, in the midst of the coronavirus (COVID-19) lockdown (the Mayor’s stay at home order here in Los Angeles) I went to Office Depot in the San Fernando Valley in the late afternoon. I was standing in the parking lot, next to my car, observing the few people around me, so as to judge whether it would be safe to go into the store.

To my amazement, in my astral vision, I could see that the Angel of Death had passed by, and left this place. On the astral airs, I had a retrospective view of a dark form … not menacing, but neutral in aspect … a dignified, stern but comely being about 20 feet long, clothed in a black robe, flying off in the air at an altitude a little higher than the buildings there. Intuition whispered that this being compassionately dispensed what ill tidings he bore hither and yon, over the face of our beloved planet. The ‘feel’ of the vision was a little like this …

There were a few people in the parking lot; they looked healthy, and wore no face masks. In the store, the music was light and upbeat, and the young store clerks looked hopeful and healthy. From this I gathered that the worst was behind us.

FLIGHT PATH OF THE ANGEL OF DEATH

I wondered where that Angel of Death was headed next, so I checked the map about it. It looks like the Angel was heading off towards Antartica, with a flight trajectory passing a little east of New Zealand, through the Pacific Ocean …

Drawing: “Trajectory of Angel of Death on 29 March 2020,” by Alice B. Clagett, 15 May 2020, CC BY-SA 4.0, from “Awakening with Planet Earth,” https://awakeningwithplanetearth.com … DESCRIPTION: Map of China, Australia, New Zealand, North America, South America, and Antarctica. There is a red star by the Office Depot I visited in the the San Fernando Valley, California. From that star is drawn a purple line passing through the Pacific Ocean east of New Zealand, and intersecting Antarctica. The line is labeled “Flight Path of the Angel of Death.”

TIMELINE JUMPING OR SURFING: TIME SLIPPAGE IN VISIONS

Over the years I have found that there is some ‘time slippage’ in visions; they may be a little before or after the rolling out of the hologram before my physical eyes. As well, I often find that there is ‘time slippage’ in the mass media. For instance, I had a prophetic vision to do with some cloud readings on 12 February 2020 …

Link: “Early February 2020: Omens in the Sky,” by Alice B. Clagett, filmed on 12 February 2020; published on 1 May 2020 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-hS7 ..

But it was not till 19 March 2020 that the governor of California issued the safer at home order.

Clearly, the vision I had of the Angel of Death passing by was also before the fact. The vision took place on 29 March 2020 and the tally of those passing on of COVID-19 in Los Angeles continues to be on the high side.

Sometimes they say that the perception of the mass media lags the unfolding epic of life on Earth. Of course, it takes some time after an event for it to be reported on the news … but the question is, how much time does it take? Is it a matter of hours, or days, or years? Could it be sometimes the one, and sometimes the other?

From the stance of multitemporality, on the other hand, could it be that the forward looking visions of a prophet have to do with timeline jumping or timeline surfing? That would be another way of looking at the fact that prophets speak about things that are about to unfold.

DISJUNCT BETWEEN WHAT I SEE IN MY COMMUNITY AND THE COVID-19 ONLINE TALLIES

The odd thing is, it seems as if what I see … my personal experience of life in my community … does not match what I see in the COVID-19 statistics.

Waves of Fear Stirred Up by Mass Media

To me there seems to be a big disjunct going on; it feels to me like the mass media are revving up people’s fears about getting ill and passing on. As an empath, I can feel waves of fear coursing through the noosphere at night, when people might be expected to watch the news channels.

Are Not Blessings All Around Us?

Is there reason to be fearful? Or are there blessings in store for us, here in California? Could it be that a great blessing is unfolding here on Earth, as the Incoming Light inspires us to new spiritual heights during Summer Solstice 2020?

I feel the answer is the latter. I find that, if I center my Awareness on my own two feet, on the patch of Earth on which I am standing, then look through my own eyes at the scene unfolding around me, then all is well. I find peace and tranquility everywhere. My world is full of blessings.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

Dear Ones,

I did some research today on the cause of the configuration of the current COVID-19 infection map in the United States …

COVID-19 INFECTION MAP FOR THE UNITED STATES AS OF 25 MARCH 2020

Link: “Where COVID-19 Has Been Confirmed in the U.S. | Statista,” as of 25 March 2020, Sources: Johns Hopkins University, Centers for Disease Control (CDC) … https://www.statista.com/chart/20978/coronavirus-cases-us-map/ … Creative Commons

Link: “Where COVID-19 Has Been Confirmed in the U.S. | Statista,” as of 25 March 2020, Sources: Johns Hopkins University, Centers for Disease Control (CDC) … https://www.statista.com/chart/20978/coronavirus-cases-us-map/ … Creative Commons

As can be seen from the above map, some of the most affected states are New York, New Jersey, California, Washington State, Michigan, Illinois, Florida, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Georgia. Colorado, and Texas.

Least affected as of 25 March 2020 were the uppermost two tiers of states that were not near the Pacific Ocean or the Great Lakes.

USE OF ALCOHOL AND OF PRESCRIPTION AND NONPRESCRIPTION DRUGS MAY WEAKEN THE IMMUNE SYSTEM, INCREASING THE SEVERITY OF COVID-19 SYMPTOMS

I see by my research today that the use of alcohol or opioids (including heroin, cocaine, and prescription morphine) can weaken the immune system, increasing the severity of the effect of COVID-19 infection.

From the map, I see that most of the United States is involved in drug use, the least affected states being North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Iowa, and Texas.

DESCRIPTION: Dark red represents the highest drug overdose death rate.

Importance of Strengthening the Immune System

I have read that the COVID-19 statistics from China show 81 percent of those who are infected are asymptomatic [which I feel may mean not that they are asymptomatic, but rather that they do not present with symptoms that indicate the need for intubation]

Link: “Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19): Epidemiology, Virology, and Prevention,” by Kenneth McIntosh, MD; Martin S. Hirsch, MD; and Allyson Bloom, MD, updated 12 June 2020 … https://www.uptodate.com/contents/coronavirus-disease-2019-covid-19?source=history_widget ..

I feel that lack of symptoms must have to do with the strength of the immune system; so whatever we can do to make our immune systems stronger, as the wave or waves of COVID-19 sweep through our particular state, would be very helpful.

For instance, I find that drinking filtered water with buffered vitamin C mixed into it every other day is very helpful in bolstering my immune system when I feel a cold coming on; this might be helpful for early symptoms of COVID-19 as well.

I also saw somewhere online that consumption of vitamin D might be helpful; and just in the general course of preventive health care, taking a daily vitamin and mineral supplement is recommended by many Western medical doctors.

In the case of people whose lifestyle includes the use of recreational drugs, the good news is that withdrawing from use of these drugs prior to the onset of symptoms might improve the chances of having only a mild response to COVID-19 infection.

INFECTION WITH HIV / AIDS MAY WEAKEN THE IMMUNE SYSTEM, INCREASING THE SEVERITY OF COVID-19 SYMPTOMS

As well, I have read that autoimmune diseases such as HIV / AIDS can weaken the immune system, increasing the severity of the effect of COVID-19 infection.

You can see the low arc of the infection swinging round the southern edges of the United States, and also that New York State is involved in the epidemic.

Image: “Rates of HIV Diagnosis in the United States, 2017,” by United States Centers for Disease Control, 1 February 2019, in Wikimedia Commons … https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Hiv-us-map-2017.png … public domain … DESCRIPTION: Dark blue represents the highest HIV rate.

DESCRIPTION: Dark blue represents the highest HIV rate.

There is no cure for HIV infection, but symptoms of AIDS can be treated. The present moment may not be the right time for that though. If you are infected with HIV, then you might want to ask your doctor about whether you ought to wait on treatment until the COVID-19 infection builds up and then subsides in the state in which you live (much as I hope will be the case for New York State soon).

Los Angeles COVID-19 Peak Predicted for 9-12 Days From Now

Along those lines, I read that Los Angeles Mayor Garcetti predicts that Angelenos may see a great surge in COVID-19 infections (concomitant to the surge currently being experienced in New York)  six to 12 days from now [that would be 31 March 2020 to 6 April 2020]

Link: “As deaths rise in L.A. County, officials issue new quarantine order,” by Sarah Parvini, Rong-Gong Lin II, Taryn Luna, and Colleen Shalby, 25 March 2020, in the Los Angeles Times … https://www.latimes.com/california/story/2020-03-25/coronavirus-california-peak-deaths ..

How Mayor Garcetti’s Prediction re Rise in California COVID-19 Cases Has Fared

On 15 June 2020, I viewed a graph of “New Reported Deaths by Day in California,” in Link: “California Coronavirus Map and Case Count” by New York Times Staff, updated 15 June 2020, in New York Times … https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2020/us/california-coronavirus-cases.html ..

I see on the smoothed graph that California deaths did indeed start rising sharply on 31 March 2020, as predicted by Mayor Garcetti. The numbers continued to increase until 23 April 2020.

As of that date, graph smoothing shows a double peak of deaths on 23 April 2020 and 27-28 April 2020. Since then there has been a very gradual decline in daily numbers of deaths.

POSSIBLE FACTORS: HIGH-RISE BUILDINGS, CANADIAN CITIES NEAR NORTHERN UNITED STATES BORDER, AND MERCHANT MARINE

On studying the drug death and the HIV / AIDS infection maps above, I found these to a reasonable degree correspond to the lower arc of the above U.S. map of COVID-19 infection.

Thoughts on High-Rises and the COVID-19 Infection in New York State

I have a few thoughts about how New York has taken the fore in terms of COVID-19 infections. I wonder if it might have to do with many people living in high-rise buildings that share common HVAC … so that infected air might be circulating throughout a building?

As you may know, I mentioned the HVAC in high-rises as a possible source of COVID-19 infection in an earlier blog …

Link: “COVID-19 and Central HVAC,” by Alice B. Clagett, written and published on 17 March 2020 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-gZ4 ..

Thoughts on Possible Involvement of Canadian Cities Such as Toronto and Vancouver

As far as infection of Washington State and of the Great Lakes states is concerned, I wondered if trade with the Canadian cities of Vancouver and Toronto might have been a factor in their infection with COVID-19. I see no substantiation of this from the Canadian government, but it is possible there has not been as much testing for COVID-19 there, or that statistics have not yet been tabulated in that regard.

Thoughts on Possible Involvement of the Merchant Marine in Infection of United States International Ports

The involvement of the Great Lakes states in early COVID-19 infection surprised me; it made me wonder whether the merchant marine might be bringing COVID-19 from foreign ports into United States ports. The effect of the merchant marine might have had to do with the early COVID-19 infection of Washington State, California, and New York State as well.

. . . . .

Those are my thoughts for now on the COVID-19 pandemic.

Blessings of perfect health and happiness to everyone! Stay well!

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

Look Out for Stray Dogs in COVID Cities? . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 24 March 2020; updated on 15 June 2020

Dear Ones,

I was out briefly in the San Fernando Valley this morning, and I intuitively picked up on a ‘sign’ or portent: I saw two dogs walking without an owner down the sidewalk, near Topanga Canyon Blvd. As this is a rare sight in Los Angeles, I got to thinking we ought to look out for stray dogs in the cities hard hit by the COVID-19 pandemic. Currently, that would be cities in New York, New Jersey, California, and Washington State …

Link: “Coronavirus in the U.S.: Latest Map and Case Count,” by Mitch Smith, Karen Yourish, Sarah Almukhtar, Keith Collins, Danielle Ivory, Allison McCann, Jin Wu and Amy Harmon, updated 24 march 2020 1:54 P.M. E.T., in The New York Times … https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2020/us/coronavirus-us-cases.html … COMMENT: May require a ‘sign up’ to log onto this article.

I was out briefly in the San Fernando Valley this morning, and I intuitively picked up on a possible danger that might be coming up: I saw two dogs walking without an owner down the sidewalk near Topanga Canyon Blvd on Erwin Street. As this is a rare sight in Los Angeles, I got to thinking I ought to look out for stray dogs when I am in the Los Angeles communities hard hit by the COVID-19 pandemic.

It seems to me possible there might later on be people at home and too sick to care for their pets because of the coronavirus. It is possible we will see roving, hungry pets on the sidewalks and streets, looking for food to scavenge.

I have two thoughts on this: First, I thought I would carry a sealed-up bag of dog kibble with me when out and about, as an offering of a little kibble might buy some time for a strategic retreat to one’s car or to within a building. Cat kibble might do, in a pinch.

Then I thought I would find out the phone number of the local animal rescue agency, write down a description of the dogs and the intersection, and call their personnel to ask for a rescue.

As rescue staff may be short in the coming weeks, I think the main thing may be to be aware of this novel, possible danger … the possibility of stray animals hungry and looking for food, possibly not acting normally, and to get to a safe place if they are sighted.

It is possible the coronavirus is transferable to pets, whether dogs or cats: I do not think that is known right now. If pets could get the virus, then I guess they might transmit it to a person. For that reason I advise against doing a good deed and taking a stray pet home, for now.

Years ago I remember seeing dogs that were once domestice and had since gone wild, running together in packs, and hunting in the canyons of San Diego. It is possible that very hungry dogs, especially if running in a pack, might attack a person, especially a child, and or maybe an adult, if at night; I thought I would stay clear of stray dogs during the next few weeks for that reason.

I know that currently, here in Los Angeles, the chance of danger from released or escaped pets is minimal. This is just a thought for the future.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

Predicted Coronavirus Death Toll for California . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 17 March 2020; updated on 15 June 2020

Dear Ones,

As you may know, the Chinese province of Hubei, which was the first part of the world to suffer the COVID-19 pandemic, has a population of 58.5 million people. Of those infected, the death toll according to the World Health Organization is 3,085 people.

There are about 39.6 million people in California. All things being equal (which may be far from the case) we might expect a coronavirus death toll in California of 2,088 people. [According to the Los Angeles Times (1) there have been 5,082 deaths attributed to COVID-19 in California as of 15 June 2020, so my estimate was too low.]

That is calculated thus: 3,085 Hubei province deaths, divided by 58.5M Hubei population, multiplied by 39.6M California population = 2,088 predicted State of California deaths.

As a percentage of the State of California population, that would be a mortality rate of 0.005 percent of the population; which is to say, a mortality rate of about five people in 10,000. [According to the New York Times (2), as of 15 June 2020, the COVID-19 mortality rate in California was 13 per 100,000, so my estimate was low.]

While far from ideal, those are pretty good odds of survival, I feel, provided we follow the World Health Organization and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention coronavirus guidelines  …

  • CONCLUSION

Dear Ones,

I wrote up these notes in April 2018, with a hope that I would soon finish them off. More than a year later, I have to figure I may never get round to that. I apologize to my reader that they are presented here in outline form …

THOUGHTS ON PROVIDING STAGE ONE WORK FOR THE CALIFORNIA HOMELESS AT LESS THAN MINIMUM WAGE, IN EXCHANGE FOR SOCIAL SERVICES

I have a thought that Stage One work might be provided the California homeless at less than minimum wage, in exchange for social services such as State One housing, necessary medical treatment, food, and temporary housing.

I note we have precedents in paying less than the minimum wage, here in America: Commission sales work, work on small farms, and newspaper delivery, for instance …

Link: “When Must Employers Pay the Minimum Wage?, updated by Sachi Barreiro, Attorney, at NOLO … https://www.nolo.com/legal-encyclopedia/employers-pay-minimum-wage-law-29600.html ..

Prison Work Programs for Less Than a Dollar an Hour

Then there is the special instance of prison labor, where inmates have the voluntary option to work, for less than $1 an hour …

Link: “How Much Do Incarcerated People Earn in Each State?” by Wendy Sawyer, 10 April 2017, in Prison Policy Initiative … https://www.prisonpolicy.org/blog/2017/04/10/wages/ ..

Thus we have a precedent, in the exceptional circumstance of incarceration, for offering work at a great deal less than the minimum wage. Could we build upon this precedent by offering work training to our felons or released felons or homeless, at far less than minimum wage?

If the precedent might be stretched in this way, then we might have the setting for an economic bounce-back, here in California, as greater numbers of the currently unemployed are able to find employment.

Prison Release Work Camps. I am thinking that something like this might be good if, for lack of funds, we have to release the prison population. For those who are ‘unregenerate’ … to use an old-time term … work camps might be set up or ‘rough and tumble’ work might be provided as an alternative to imprisonment, at greatly less than the minimum wage. This topic I discussed in a little more detail here …

Link: “Ought the United States, like North Korea, Have Forced Labor?” by Alice B. Clagett, published on 21 May 2019 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-cQw ..

A Stage One Consideration in Employing California’s Homeless at Less Than the Minimum Wage

Here is a Stage One consideration: Let’s try to figure out some way to get around the minimum wage, for people who are unhomed, and who are receiving extra social services, in the event the United States government is not able to participate, here in California, in ameliorating the situation, and easing the social unrest.

For instance, could we offer something more akin to prison labor … voluntary labor, and a very small wage, in exchange for housing and food and medical care? Could we offer that, in camps especially set up for that?

What would be the long-term situation with regard to those that California cannot now find work for at minimum wage, and who must find work? If employment at less than minimum wage in exchange for social services were to be offered as a temporary, short-term Phase One, then what would be Phases Two and Three?

THOUGHTS ON SLOWING THE SPREAD OF HIV AND AIDS IN PRISONS

On Isolating HIV-Positive Prison Populations in Cell Blocks, Together with HIV-Positive Prison Guards

In United States prisons, HIV tests might be used to separate the HIV-positive prison populations … and the HIV-positive prison guards … physically, from those prisoners and guards who are HIV-negative. These tests need to be performed every 6 months, as I understand it, and also one month after possible exposure to the virus. HIV tests might be made routine in prison medical facilities, not only for the safety of prisoners and guards, but also for the sake of the infectable law-abiding populations upon whom prisoners might prey, either as prostitutes or as sexual predators, after their release.

Conjugal Visits

I think that, to prevent the spread of HIV and AIDS amongst United States prison populations, we ought to consider allowing conjugal or significant other visits in our federal prisons, and in those state prisons that currently do not do so.

Conjugal visits might lead to less intercourse amongst inmates, and less intercourse between inmates and prison guards, so that HIV might spread more slowly amongst the prison population. I feel that conjugal visits might also lead to less violence amongst prisoners.

Such a policy also might help prisoners who have been in long-time-paired relationships to preserve those relationships while imprisoned. It might help families stay together through the financial hardship of imprisonment of a parent, and that might positively affect community life.

HUMAN TRAFFICKING OF IMMIGRANTS TO THE UNITED STATES, COMPARED TO THAT IN CHINA

I have been perusing the “CIA World Factbook” online …

Link: “World Factbook,” by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) … https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/the-world-factbook/ ..

… and have found it full of information pertinent to forestalling social unrest in California. For instance, from my reading, it seems to me that the human trafficking of immigrants to China from North Korea in our lifetime is, in some ways, analogous to the human trafficking of immigrants to the United States from Mexico.

How China Deals with an Influx of Minimally Employable People from North Korea

Apparently, there are masses of people in North Korea, whom the government forces into forced labor in China …

“… North Korea does not fully comply with minimum standards for the elimination of [human] trafficking and is not making significant efforts to do so; the government continued to participate in human trafficking through its use of domestic forced labor camps and the provision of forced labor to foreign governments through bilateral contracts; officials did not demonstrate any efforts to address human trafficking through prosecution, protection, or prevention measures; no known investigations, prosecutions, or convictions of trafficking offenders or officials complicit in trafficking-related offenses were conducted; the government also made no efforts to identify or protect trafficking victims and did not permit NGOs to assist victims (2015) …” –from Link: “CIA World Factbook, North Korea,” in the section: Transnational Issues … Subheading: Trafficking in personshttps://www.cia.gov/library/publications/resources/the-world-factbook/geos/kn.html … public domain

Korean people also may flee to China of their own free will so as to escape starvation …

“… risking arrest, imprisonment, and deportation, tens of thousands of North Koreans cross into China to escape famine, economic privation, and political oppression … –from Link: “CIA World Factbook, North Korea,” in the section: Transnational Issues … subheading: Disputes – International https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/resources/the-world-factbook/geos/kn.html … public domain

Those types of labor available to trafficked peoples sometimes may be beneath the level of misery that is acceptable here in the United States …

Link: “Trafficking in Persons Report June 2017,” by United States of America Department of State … https://www.hsdl.org/?view&did=801874This is a pdf download.

It might be prostitution. It might be illegal activities such as theft. It might be begging. They might be held by gangs that are ‘beneath the law’ and forced to be members of those gangs. This, to me, is unacceptable.

How the United States Deals with an Influx of Minimally Employable People from Mexico

The situation with immigrants from North Korean to China is analogous, in some regards, to the situation with immigrants from Mexico to the United States. Immigrants from Mexico are not forced by the United States government into inhumane kinds of labor, but they may find themselves in those kinds of situations … living In dug-out caves in the Earth, for instance. And doing seasonal, migrant labor. Or young women or children may find themselves forced into lives of prostitution by pimps.

One thing we might look at, going forward, is how job training might be offered new immigrants, here in the United States, so as to broaden the scope of job opportunities for which they are eligible. This type of job training is doubly beneficial: It helps raise the living standard of immigrants; and it helps lessen the spiritual burden of human trafficking in the United States and uplift our nation through good works in our community.

The philanthropy we offer those caught in the throes of human trafficking is a kindness we offer our children as well, for they will look forward to a better educated community through whose informed choices may be sculpted a brighter tomorrow for all America.

CONCLUSION

In conclusion, I feel that Los Angeles in particular, due to such stressors as homelessness and released felons, faces the spectre of social unrest at present. What to do? I feel we must look at what other countries do when faced with these stressors. We must not turn away from innovative solutions simply because we feel they are beneath us, as Americans.

I feel it is because we feel this: that the lesser good we are able to provide the homeless and released felons is beneath us, and unworthy of them, that we have found ourselves for ten years to be in stalemate as a city.

We are unable to provide the level of benefits and care that has been, with hopeful optimism, voted into California law. Massive problems lie before us, and have done so for 10 years now. California is a Sanctuary State for those fleeing from downright extermination in the crueler states of our great Union.

Though we are that to many, we have not the funds to help those seeking sanctuary in the manner afforded the homeless, the helpless, those seeking shelter, food, and work in days of old.

Here in Los Angeles we must make bold to provide what we may to those who have nothing at all. Though it be against the laws of our nation, and against those of our State, we must do what we can. We must offer what we may. We must open our hearts, still our doubts, and come up with sensible, novel solutions to the new problems that lie before us.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

Call for Action: Lower the Cash Price for HIV Medicines in California . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 6 December 2019

Dear Ones,

Here are rough notes on the need to lower the cash price of HIV medicines in California. I note that the links from which I got the below figures may be updating their figures from time to time; the figures may look different on the date you read the blog …

As the lifetime treatment of HIV is about $367,000, and as I estimate the lifetime wage of the average American to be about $461,000, it is clear that the HIV bloom nationwide will make it difficult for families that test positive for HIV to meet their medical expenses.

In addition, there may come a time when Obamacare is compromised with regard to providing HIV and AIDS medicines to Americans. In advance of such a possibility, I suggest looking into lowering the cost of AIDS medicines so that they may be affordable to HIV-compromised patients, as cash outlay, and even without the relief of having medical insurance.

The question is, how may drug companies be prevailed upon to lower their costs so that they are affordable? Maybe our California legislature will come up with an answer for us? My prayer is that they may.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

Community Health Call to Action: HIV Testing and Segregation in Health Care and Education? . by Alice B. Clagett

Written on 4 December 2019 and published on 5 December 2019

  • CALL FOR HIV TESTING AND SEGREGATION OF HIV-POSITIVE HEALTH CARE PROVIDERS IN SENSITIVE HEALTH CARE SECTORS
  • CALL FOR HIV TESTING AND SEGREGATION OF HIV-POSITIVE CHILD CARE, DAY CARE AND GRADE SCHOOL CARE GIVERS, EDUCATORS, AND CHILDREN

Dear Ones,

There is, I feel, an urgent need here in the San Fernando Valley, California,for testing and segregation of HIV-positive people in sensitive health care and education sectors  as follows …

CALL FOR HIV TESTING AND SEGREGATION OF HIV-POSITIVE HEALTH CARE PROVIDERS IN SENSITIVE HEALTH CARE SECTORS

In addition, at the present moment it is of great importance to monitor the HIV status of United States physicians, especially surgeons  and others who perform invasive procedures, and the HIV status of phlebotomists (medical technicians who draw blood).

We must decide, community by community, whether those in sensitive health care positions who test positive for HIV ought to be moved to less sensitive health care sectors; or whether they might be reserved for the use of HIV positive patients.

CALL FOR HIV TESTING AND SEGREGATION OF HIV-POSITIVE CHILD CARE, DAY CARE AND GRADE SCHOOL CARE GIVERS, EDUCATORS, AND CHILDREN

I have read that HIV can be transmitted through mucus or blood or semen contact … as through kissing or diaper changing, or through dressing open wounds, or through sexual intercourse . Thus I feel that it is of equal importance, at the present moment, to monitor the HIV status of child care and day care providers and of grade school educators and also of children starting with newborns, and on up through puberty.

As above, we must decide, community by community, whether to restrict HIV-positive early childhood care givers and grade school educators to care or education of children who are HIV positive, and whether to separate children into HIV-positive and HIV-negative groups in child care, day care, and grade schools.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

The Ghouls of Sere Vale . an Astral Story by Alice B. Clagett

Dear Ones,

INTRODUCTION

Here is a spooky astral tale for you, that I clairly heard while exploring the Rose Valley Area of Ventura County near Ojai, California. The tale is entirely fictional, and all the characters are fictional as well.

This tale could have been sparked by a ranger warning sign I saw at the entrance of the dirt road to Piedra Blanca Trailhead (Rose Valley Area) …

Image: “Warning Sign at the Entrance to Piedra Blanca Trailhead from Rose Canyon Road (NF-6N31), Ventura County, California,” by Alice B.

Danger for Hikers and Campers in Rural Ventura County and Los Angeles County?

In the last few years, I have clairly listened to several astral stories while exploring the byroads and hiking trails of Ventura County north of Ojai and of Los Angeles County north of Santa Clarita. What intuition very strongly tells me is that those of us who hike and camp in rural areas of Ventura County and Los Angeles Cunty are in danger of thefts from our parked vehicles (including theft of electronics, personal items, and tires); theft of the vehicles themselves; burglary of equipment from our tents; and apparently possible violent loss of our lives so that thieves may market our stolen goods and cars without being caught out.

I feel what intuition tells me is greatly increased danger in this regard may have to do with higher water costs for Ventura County and Los Angeles County rural residents, the need for food and firewood for their homes, and the need for feed and water for their livestock. It seems to me reasonable, if these crimes are occurring, to try to find out if local Ventura County and Los Angeles County residents have a hand in it.

Need for Inter-County Law Enforcement Liaisons Amongst Counties Adjacent to the City of Los Angeles

It is possible that, because of increasing economic stresses in California, residents of small towns and of rural areas … including their law enforcement agencies … may be beginning to band together to protect themselves from outsiders, and to profit by occasional raids on tourists and visitors such as I describe above.

I ask that law enforcement for counties adjacent to the City of Los Angeles reach out, each to the other, so as to form as close bonds of cooperation and information exchange as possible. In that way, we can keep Southern California strong and safe for everyone.

The above concerns are derived from intuition and clair perception; they cannot be said to be factual in any regard unless facts are found that support the ‘astral intel’.

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice. I Am of the Stars.

Do I have a spooky story for you!

I just went down a long grade on a poorly paved hill with a lot of issues for a Honda to negotiate … a mile or so down … and at the bottom of the mountain was a rough campground. It was a dead end next to a stand of trees and a tiny, very shallow brook. Here is the topo map …

Link: “Middle Lion Campground Topo Map in Ventura County, CA,” by Topozone … https://www.topozone.com/california/ventura-ca/locale/middle-lion-campground/ ..

There were no people there. I got a spooky feeling immediately. I hardly wanted to get out of the car, even so much as to look at the brook. I did get out, but first I positioned my car so that it was heading back in the direction up the hill, next to the road … such as it was … that went up the hill.

As I got out of my car, lo and behold, there drove down to the turnaround that I was facing a man who looked like Clint Eastwood; without a mustache, without a hat, but definitely that piercing-eyed, Clint Eastwood, spare look.

Next to him in the car was a lady who was looking in the other direction, as if she were emotionally distant. She was about his age, maybe his wife or girlfriend, I guess. She was very pretty, and muscular in the way that people who live outdoors on ranches are.

So I thought, gosh, maybe these two are ranchers or farmers; something like that. But I had a presentiment; I thought: Maybe I had better skedaddle back up the hill right away. So the minute I saw them I got in the car. Just as they were stopping in the roundabout, I was heading back up the hill, such as it was … the ill-paved hill … as fast as I could, considering my Honda.

While I was going up the hill I was talking to them on the psychic plane.

The man said: I guess she knows what happened here last night.

I thought: What is that about … that big, black trash bag propped up against the post next to the roundabout? Are there bodies in the bag? What’s up? My emotions were running wild; I could not figure it out.

Then I said to the lady, on the psychic plane: Say, what does he mean by that?

She said: We tied ‘em up, and we conked ‘em out.

I said, on the astral plane: Where’d you take them?

She said: We took them to the manure heap in the back of our place.

As I was heading up the hill I heard a friend of the man pitch in and say: Did we lose anything there?

And the man at the bottom of the hill said: No, I don’t think that’s worth looking into.

I thought: Oh my gosh, what should I do? So in that county where that is, in my mind I called to the sheriff. I said: Say, you know what’s happening over there …

He said: Yeah, we got an idea what’s going on.

Then I said: I ‘xpect it’s those types of folks that hires a sheriff in this county?

He said: Yeah, it’s up to them.

Spooky! Then the man at the bottom of the hill said: Well you know, we ain’t got enough water for the cattle out here to last all the year round, so we got to do something to make ends meet.

I got on the main road, and was just riding along, hoping there were no tacks strewn round on that bad road that went down the mountain; hoping I was not going to get a flat before I got back to welcome civilization … that being the next small town along the way.

I heard the woman’s voice talking to the man. It went like this: I just don’t like that look in their eyes … that pleading look in their eyes.

The man said: Last night the fellow died like a man. He looked me straight in the eye and he said ‘Go ahead and do it!’

The other night I was listening to a gentleman on the psychic plane. He sounded a little like the Dalai Lama; like a person who offers sage, peaceful advice. He said: If anybody confesses to a horrible crime on the astral plane, just say to them ‘I understand’. Then they will leave you alone, and go off someplace.

I have been trying that ever since. I have to say, my success rate is pretty impressive. So I thought, with this couple with whom I was just talking it might be a good thing to use as well, because then the gentleman at the bottom of the hill said, on the astral plane: I wonder if we have to worry about rounding up this one …

An the astral plane, I said: I understand …

And he said: No, I guess that’s no worth worrying about.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

Dear Ones,

Here in the United States, we are faced with lack of funds to deal with big problems of homelessness, unemployment, underemployment, and poverty-line living. For some years now, these difficult problems have been before us, and felicitous solutions, to date, do not avail.

Why is it that we have not found viable, long-term solutions to these problems? I feel it is because we have not felt desperate enough, or perhaps innovative enough, to look outside the envelope, and see what other nations that have been facing similar problems have come up with in terms of solutions.

I took a look at the United States Central Intelligence Agency’s “World Factbook,” hoping to come up with some off-the-wall offerings, and came up with the example of the dire poverty faced by North Korea, and its institution of Forced Labor for public projects. Here is part of what I found out …

HOW NORTH KOREA DEALS WITH INCURABLE POVERTY AND STARVATION

As I see it, in North Korea, the problem is intractable, long-term, incurable poverty. I have for you this quotation from the “CIA World Factbook,” with regard to the grim facts of the North Korean economy …

“North Korea, one of the world’s most centrally directed and least open economies, faces chronic economic problems. Industrial capital stock is nearly beyond repair as a result of years of underinvestment, shortages of spare parts, and poor maintenance. Large-scale military spending and development of its ballistic missile and nuclear program severely draws off resources needed for investment and civilian consumption. Industrial and power outputs have stagnated for years at a fraction of pre-1990 levels. Frequent weather-related crop failures aggravated chronic food shortages caused by on-going systemic problems, including a lack of arable land, collective farming practices, poor soil quality, insufficient fertilization, and persistent shortages of tractors and fuel.

“The mid 1990s through mid 2000s were marked by severe famine and widespread starvation. Significant food aid was provided by the international community through 2009. Since that time, food assistance has declined significantly. In the last few years, domestic corn and rice production has improved, although domestic production does not fully satisfy demand. A large portion of the population continues to suffer from prolonged malnutrition and poor living conditions. Since 2002, the government has allowed semi-private markets to begin selling a wider range of goods, allowing North Koreans to partially make up for diminished public distribution system rations. It also implemented changes in the management process of communal farms in an effort to boost agricultural output …” –from Link: “CIA World Factbook,  North Korea” … https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/resources/the-world-factbook/geos/kn.html … public domain.

FORCED LABOR IN NORTH KOREA AS A BARTER SUBSTITUTE FOR THE COINED TAX SYSTEM

Rather than asking people, who have nothing, for taxes, instead North Korea is conscripting people into forced labor situations for nothing … for free … to help with government projects …

… North Korea is a source country for men, women, and children who are subjected to forced labor and sex trafficking; many North Korean workers recruited to work abroad under bilateral contracts with foreign governments, most often Russia and China, are subjected to forced labor and do not have a choice in the work the government assigns them, are not free to change jobs, and face government reprisals if they try to escape or complain to outsiders; tens of thousands of North Koreans, including children, held in prison camps are subjected to forced labor, including logging, mining, and farming; many North Korean women and girls, lured by promises of food, jobs, and freedom, have migrated to China illegally to escape poor social and economic conditions only to be forced into prostitution, domestic service, or agricultural work through forced marriages.” –from Link: “CIA World Factbook, North Korea,” in the section: Transnational Issues … Subheading: Trafficking in persons … https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/resources/the-world-factbook/geos/kn.html … public domain.

To some degree, the ‘forcing of labor’ in North Korea, I feel in some instances may be a substitute for the coined tax system … It is more like a ‘barter’ tax, you know? We might look at this practice and offhandedly think of it as a completely evil thing, whereas, in fact, it may be a necessary thing there, so as to keep the economy alive, in a situation where everyone faces starvation whenever (as is often the case) weather conditions are not good.

HOW THE UNITED STATES EMPLOYS FORCED LABOR IN OTHER GUISE

I feel that we have various forms of forced labor here in the United States … forced labor that may be less injurious to human rights, but nevertheless forced labor. It is just that we cushion it with other terms … more aesthetic terms … according to our ideas of how things ought to be. Here are two kinds of ‘forced labor’ that we look favorably upon in the United States …

Community Service in Lieu of Prison Time

For instance, North Korea has forced labor part of the year … during which the people in the towns have to work for the government for free or for almost nothing … That has analogies to community service at, say, $40 a day, in lieu of prison time for Coloradans.

Prison ‘Work Release’ Programs

Then, I noticed in Mendocino County, California, there are various prison ‘work release’ programs … home detention, work release, and work furlough …

Link: “Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office” … https://www.mendocinosheriff.com/ … Click on: Corrections

ADVANTAGES OF OFFERING FELONS RURAL AND WILDERNESS WORK CAMP OPPORTUNITIES

Work Camps as Work Ethic Education

I recall that, in Russia and China, they think of forced labor as a way of educating people with regard to the work ethic … inculcating a notion of being productive members of society. And we might consider it like that too.

If we cannot house the felons in urban prisons, we could expand our programs to house them in work camps in rural or wilderness areas. These work camps might be viewed as offering education in the work ethic, and in that way, helping felons to qualify for good jobs after their release.

On Offering Habitual Offenders ‘Rough and Tumble’ Jobs Far From Urban Centers

In addition to providing work ethic education, work camp job experience would likely provide improved physical conditioning. This might help released felons find ‘rough and tumble’ jobs far from urban centers, occupations such as lumberjacking, or tramp steamer crew, for instance. Maybe, work in the mines, or in the deserts, or on oil rigs. There might be a segment of felons to whom rough and tumble jobs appeal; and this appeal might decrease recidivism.

There may be felons with many offenses, and whom we are unable to keep in prison. Yet if they are released, they might look for criminal work, and not wish to integrate into the general community. In some cases, they might fall into the category ‘antisocial personalities’. In such instances, it might be good if they found work away from the general population.

If California is unable to house multiple offenders, we might also consider offering those serving time the option to become a free person, or a semi-free person, in an occupation that is far from the general public … where the released prisoners cannot hurt the general public.

CONCLUSION

My thought as to whether forced labor might successfully be employed in the United States is this: Considering the American way of life, forced labor could never succeed here if it ruthlessly trammels human rights. I do feel, on the other hand, that the choice of modified versions of forced labor … as amongst the prison populations, or for released felons, or for the indigent … might be offered as an alternative, a free will choice, that might prove appealing, were its benefits to be properly laid out, and then offered by way of explanation to those undertaking it.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

Dear Ones,

CRUNCHING THE NUMBERS  (very approximately)

I read that 20 percent of Californians are ex-felons …

Link: “Study estimates U.S. population with felony convictions,” by Alan Flurry, 1 October 2017, in UGA Today … https://news.uga.edu/total-us-population-with-felony-convictions/ ..

… and that made me wonder about the HIV positive status of felons and ex-felons, compared to the general California population, and also about overall numbers of Californians with HIV.

I have crunched the most recent numbers I could find, as follows …

As of 2015, 0.8% of California prisoners had HIV … 

LInk: “HIV in Prisons, 2015 – Statistical Tables,” by Laura M. Maruschak and Jennifer Bronson, Ph.D., BJS Statisticians, August 2017, NCJ 250641, US Department of Justice, Office of Justice Programs, Bureau of Justice Statistics … https://www.bjs.gov/content/pub/pdf/hivp15st.pdf … See “Appendix table 3. Estimated number of prisoners who had HIV in the custody of state and federal correctional authorities, by jurisdiction, 2010–2015”

. . . . .

Per Google, the California population in 2017 was 39.54 million.
Assuming that the HIV rate for ex-felons might be the same as that for California prisoners in 2015, then the number of ex-felons in California with HIV in 2017 might roughly be estimated as …

(the 2017 California population)   X    (the percent of Californians who are ex-felons)  X  (the 2015 California prison HIV rate)  =

39.54 million people  X  20% ex-felons  X 0.8% HIV rate = approximately 63,264 ex-felons in California in 2017 have HIV

. . . . .

On to the question of how many ex-felons in California have HIV …

Per Google, the California population in 2015 was 39.03 million.

For California overall, 122,079 people were living with HIV as of 2015 …

Link: “LocalData: California,” in AIDSVu … https://aidsvu.org/state/california/ ..

Of these, roughly 20% were ex-felons, for whom the HIV rate is roughly 0.8%. So the number of ex-felons in California with HIV in 2015 might roughly be estimated as …

(the 2015 California population)   X    (the percent of Californians who are ex-felons)  X  (the 2015 California prison HIV rate)  =

39.03 million people  X   20% ex-felons  X 0.8% HIV rate = approximately 62,448 ex-felons in California in 2015 had HIV

. . . . .

And now, back to the 122,079 people overall living with HIV in California as of 2016 … The number of these who were Californians and not ex-felons, might be estimated as ..

(122,079 Californians overall living with HIV in 2015)  less  (62,448 ex-felons with HIV in California in 2015) = approximately 59,631 HIV cases for non-ex-felons in California in 2015

. . . . .

Then, the number of Californian non-ex-felons in 2015 might be estimated as …

(the number of Californians in 2015)  less  (the number of Californian ex-felons in 2015) =

39.03 million people in California in 2015  X 4/5 non-ex-felons = 31,224,000 Californian non-ex-felons in 2015

. . . . .

Then  the HIV rate for Californian non-ex-felons in 2015 might be estimated as …

(the number of Californian non-ex-felons with HIV in 2015)  divided by  (the number of Californian non-ex-felons in 2015) …

(59,631 HIV cases for non-ex-felons in California in 2015)  divided by (31,224,000 Californian non-ex-felons in 2015)  =  0.2% HIV rate for non-ex-felons in California in 2015

. . . . .

To the total number of HIV cases in California in 2015 would be the non-ex-felon cases plus the ex-felon cases, as follows …

(59,631 HIV cases for non-ex-felons in California in 2015)  plus  (62,448 ex-felons in California in 2015 with HIV) = approximately 122,079 HIV cases in California overall in 2015 (which looks to be roughly accurate, based on other reading I did).

CONCLUSION

I am hoping that the above figures are a pretty good ballpark; a lot depends on getting timely, accurate data. Then there is the question of crunching the numbers accurately.

Overall, I notice that ..

  • About 20 percent, or 1 in 5, Californians are ex-felons
  • This subgroup accounts for a little over half the HIV cases in California
  • While most California prisoners are being tested for HIV, non-ex-felons may not be aware of their HIV status. The reported HIV rate among non-ex-felons may begin to increase as more and more people avail themselves of the annual tests provided for through Medicare and MediCal.

Comments on 2015 Prisoner HIV Incidence by State

The HIV incidence for both California ex-felons and California non-ex-felons is in the mid-range, compared to other state … It is much lower than I had intuited in 2015. But then, these figures are for 2015, and the bloom I intuited may have happened in the last 3 years.

Importance of Timely Statistical Reporting, Considering the quick-flash nature of the course of a pandemic. I feel it is important to place a priority on getting these statistics out to the general public in as timely fashion as possible, because we may be facing a logarithmic upsurge this year. In fact, for all we know, it may already have happened.

Are we at the beginning of an HIV pandemic upsurge? There is some small indication of an impending upsurge in the literature. For instance, in the below link, I found a statement that the California HIV rate had increased 5.4% between 2012 and 2016. The years 2017 and 2018 are still an open question.

Link: “California HIV Surveillance Report — 2016,” by CA Office of AIDS, California Department of Public Health …  https://www.cdph.ca.gov/Programs/CID/DOA/CDPH%20Document%20Library/California%20HIV%20Surveillance%20Report%20-%202016.pdf ..

I notice a great deal of variance in the HIV rates among prisoners by state. While the rate was 0.8% in California, it was 3% or more in Florida, Louisiana and New York …

Request for clarification of figures for near zero HIV rate among prisoners in some states. And there are some states … notably Montana and Nevada … with almost no HIV rate amongst prisoners. Whether this means they are being murdered, or that there is little HIV overall in those states, is a topic on which I ask clarification.

Link: “HIV in Prisons, 2015 – Statistical Tables,” by Laura M. Maruschak and Jennifer Bronson, Ph.D., BJS Statisticians, August 2017, NCJ 250641, US Department of Justice, Office of Justice Programs, Bureau of Justice Statistics … https://www.bjs.gov/content/pub/pdf/hivp15st.pdf  … See “Appendix table 3. Estimated number of prisoners who had HIV in the custody of state and federal correctional authorities, by jurisdiction, 2010–2015”

HIV Screening and Viral Suppression in California Prisons May Be Helping Prevent the Spread of HIV Among HIV-Negative California Prison Populations

Also good news are statistics I read on HIV screening for California prisoners, which began in 2010. According to the below link, in 2013 California prisoners were screened for HIV, and almost all who tested positive were put on drug therapy. Of those, 88 percent attained viral suppression.

I have read that HIV-positive sexually active people who have attained viral suppression, and who use condoms … assuming that condoms are available to prisoners? … are much less likely to transmit HIV to their sexual partners. So the attainment of viral suppression among prisoners would be an important factor in preventing the spread of HIV among HIV-negative California prison populations.

California Call to Action: HIV Transmission Rates and Other News Updates on HIV / AIDS . by Alice B. Clagett

Published on 24 August 2018

  • CALL TO ACTION: CAN CALIFORNIA PROVIDE ART (ANTIRETROVIRAL THERAPY) TO HIV-POSITIVE SEX WORKERS WHO LACK HEALTH INSURANCE, SO AS TO PREVENT HIV TRANSMISSION?
  • CALIFORNIA LAW REGARDING INTENTIONAL TRANSMISSION OF HIV
  • MEDICAID AND MEDICARE WILL PAY FOR HIV TESTING AND TREATMENT
  • HIV TRANSMISSION RATES LOOK QUITE OPTIMISTIC PROVIDED HIV-POSITIVE PEOPLE USE ART

Dear Ones,

CALL TO ACTION: CAN CALIFORNIA PROVIDE ART (ANTIRETROVIRAL THERAPY) TO HIV-POSITIVE SEX WORKERS WHO LACK HEALTH INSURANCE, SO AS TO PREVENT HIV TRANSMISSION?

I have read some articles recently that state HIV transmission rates are quite low, especially if blood titer is low. As ART (antiretroviral therapy) keeps blood titer low, I suggest providing HIV-Positive Sex Workers with ART, even if they do not have health insurance, so as to prevent the transmission of HIV to their clients and their clients’ wives.

I ask that the State of California consider this proposal on an urgent basis.

CALIFORNIA LAW REGARDING INTENTIONAL TRANSMISSION OF HIV

I note that California has lowered the penalty for intentional transmission of HIV from a felony to a misdemeanor as of 2018 …

Link: “California lowers penalty for knowingly exposing partners to HIV,” by Alaa Elassar and Laura Diaz-Zuniga, CNN, updated 10 October 2017 … https://www.cnn.com/2017/10/07/health/california-hiv-bill-signed/index.html ..

MEDICAID AND MEDICARE WILL PAY FOR HIV TESTING AND TREATMENT

HIV TRANSMISSION RATES LOOK QUITE OPTIMISTIC PROVIDED HIV-POSITIVE PEOPLE USE ART

Data on HIV transmission rates are looking quite optimistic. This article in HealthLine, for instance …

Link: “Exploring HIV Transmission Rates,” in HealthLine … https://www.healthline.com/health/hiv-aids/hiv-transmission-rates ..

… states that receptive rectal intercourse with a partner results in AIDS transmission in 138 out of 10,000 sex acts

… Receptive penile-vaginal sex has a transmission rate of 8 in 10,000 sex acts, and

— Insertive penile-vaginal sex has a transmission risk of 4 in 10,000 sex acts

And this article …

Link: “9 Myths about HIV / AIDS,” from HealthLine … https://www.healthline.com/health/hiv-aids/misconceptions-about-hiv-aids#3 ..

… states that HIV-positive women who would like to have children have a risk as low as 1% of transmitting HIV to their fetus, provided they have been on ART for a while.

… and also that HIV-positive men who are on ART and whose viral load is undetectable have nearly zero risk of transmitting HIV to offspring in the act of conception.

This article …

Link: “Preventing Mother-to-Child Transmission of HIV,” in HIV.gov, 24 May 2018 … https://aidsinfo.nih.gov/understanding-hiv-aids/fact-sheets/20/50/preventing-mother-to-child-transmission-of-hiv ..

… states that the rate of transmission of HIV from a mother to her child are as low as 2%, provided the mom takes ART while pregnant and while giving birth, and provided the newborn has a course of newborn ART for 4-6 weeks after birth.

As the outlook regarding HIV transmission rates keeps evolving as new data are analyzed, I feel it is important to check on new research results from time to time.

A Call to Action: Homelessness in the San Fernando Valley . by Alice B. Clagett *

Written and published on 24 March 2018

Dear Ones,

The number of homeless per 10,000 people is about 17 people, as an average across America. Yet the number of homeless per 10,000 is about 35 people in California. In 2017, about half the people without shelter, nationwide, were in California. About 90% of the total homeless population of California are without shelter. (1)

It makes sense that California should have many more unsheltered homeless people, because the weather here is mild enough to allow people to stay alive while unsheltered. Which may be why there are twice as many homeless people per 10,000 people here than in the national average.

Homeless people in the San Fernando Valley, here in the western Los Angeles area, are camping wherever they can. Some set up camp in the Santa Monica Mountains. Children wander into the mountains after school to play. They may run across inappropriate sexual solicitations from homeless women. Or worse yet, rough handling and shakedowns by homeless men. Our parks are no longer our own, because of the influx of waves of homeless people.

I had a talk with our local law enforcement recently. They explained that their jurisdiction ends where the mountain park areas begin. They said to contact the rangers who patrol the mountains. I did call several numbers, and eventually found out there is only one ranger patrolling the Santa Monica Mountains. He said he knows about the problems with lawlessness, but is unable to respond to these, for lack of manpower.

Basically, as I understand it, there are portions of the Santa Monica Mountains that have homeless encampments, and in effect, no law enforcement is available there. That makes those areas unsafe to walk in. This is true for men, women and children.

Then, when the homeless set up their camps near people’s houses, I find, from reading Nextdoor.com, that these incursions are threatening to homeowners, and rightfully so. Their presence there represents a threat to the safety of the housed people in those communities.

I have seen, recently, residents in my general area going around, around sunset, and taking photos of homeless people with zoom cameras. And then shortly thereafter, a man in a pickup truck, who looked to me like a rough sort, cruising slowly in their direction. I had a feeling he might have had in mind roughing them up and forcing them away from the homes in the area.

I know people feel threatened by the government’s dalliance in regard to providing housing, or at least locating tenting areas for, the 6,000 or more homeless in the San Fernando Valley. Yet I do not feel that rough stuff will solve the problem. Especially, and hands down, vigilante violence, I feel, will not help.

When we express violence … even righteous violence … towards another person, the feeling of violence, and the thought of violence, do not lodge themselves in the person whom we assault. Rather, that feeling and that thought pierce our own hearts. And we bring our own hearts … as wounded by our act of violence as is the heart of the person on whom we inflicted violence … back home to our families, where is enters the hearts of our sleeping spouse and our sleeping children … the newborn and the toddler, as well as the grade school child. That feeling of violence is no respecter of youth or innocence.

As we lay our injured heart down to rest, in the home we love, that violence seeps out, in our dreamtime world, and fills our home with darkness.

As we wake up to a workday morning, and take the long commute to work, the injury in our heart, that we have all unknowing and unthinking writ there, streams out, through the morning sunlight, into the hearts and minds of those we pass, with nary a second glance, on the freeway.

When we enter the workplace, and greet our co-workers, they register in their own hearts the violence we have inflicted and the darkness that thereby slumbers in our own.

And so I say, violence is not the way!

Moreover, when we forcefully dislocate homeless people from one area of the San Fernando Valley, then they relocate to another area of the Valley. As there are, by my calculation, facilities for only about 300 homeless in the valley, the likelihood is they will set up camp in a nearby inappropriate area once more.

Instead, I suggest we consider these steps to alleviate the problem …

As to the homeless encampments in the Santa Monica Mountains, we can get maps of the unsafe areas. Maybe we could speak with law enforcement about this? And get these maps into the hands of the schools and the churches. We ought also get them on the news. That way, until we can implement a strategic relocation, there will be no mishaps with unsuspecting hikers and mountains explorers.

Then, as to the issue of incursions of the homeless into residential areas: As a first step, I feel we must set aside some areas … parks, empty lots, or parking lots … for relocation from private home areas and from the Santa Monica Mountains encampments, to these new locations.

We will need sanitary facilities, to prevent more epidemic outbreaks. I feel we will need guards to ensure the safety of this vulnerable population. And, I feel, we will need to create minimum wage, unskilled job opportunities near the encampments. And we need doctors to help with medical needs.

This relocation effort ought, I feel, to be coordinated with the Santa Monica Mountain ranger, and with local law enforcement. It is very important, to prevent violence, not to proceed with vigilante efforts, even though I know that homeowners and property owners feel a sense of rising helplessness about the situation, due to government dalliance.

The first thought is not always the best thought, especially when emotions run high. Teamwork is the very best way to go, I feel. But on the other hand, the average homed person can no longer sit idly on the sidelines, waiting for an unresponsive government to act. We must take the initiative, and help our law enforcement representatives organize a proper response.

First, I feel, a relocation effort, as noted above. Compared to providing up-to-code housing, the outlay will be quite reasonable. A number of lives of the homeless may be saved by this effort. And the general feeling of the homed, of being at their wits’ end over this problem, will be allayed.

As a second step, I suggest we in the homed community reach out to our churches and businesses and ask whether they have facilities they can offer for the homeless to live in.

We have very many churches and businesses here in the San Fernando Valley. If one in two such groups would agree to house just one homeless person, the situation could be much abated. Further, the burden of homelessness would be spread round, throughout the city, and not just concentrated in one area.

Then, on to the disproportionate number of homeless in California. Might we get additional financial aid from the Federal government to help with this?

Intuitively speaking, I feel that homeless are fleeing other states, and coming to California, not just because the climate here is more suitable for outdoor living. It may also be that other states are treating the homeless with more violence than may be encountered here in California. At least, my prayer is that that their experience here will be relatively pacific.

If it be true that, for reasons both light and dark, California is asked to bear the lion’s share of the homeless problem, then in this time of somewhat greater social unrest, when a rising swell of the homeless seeks shelter and work … however humble … across America, and if California has the heart to welcome these people, where other states in our great Union will not or cannot … then to settle this unrest, and to buoy the feelings of all our peoples, surely it would be in the best interest of our nation to provide assistance, where our state, alone, cannot?

The American people stand by a government of the people, by the people, and for the people. That is, I feel, not just the people who are able to buy their own homes, and own their own cars. Nor is it the people who buy or rent their homes. Rather, it is all the people of this great Nation … owning, renting, or yearning for a place to lay their heads.

In 1883, a poetess named Emma Lazarus had the highest hopes in this regard. Her words, strong enough to ring on, down through the centuries, strong enough to greet the eyes of every traveler crossing the weary seas in hopes of a better life here in America, strong enough to light the path for all Americans even in these modern times, are:

“‘Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!'” (2)

I agree wholeheartedly with Emma Lazarus. I feel we can embody her vision for America, even in these times of change. Especially now, in these times of change.

Let us act, together, as a community.

Let us conceive our actions in faith, in hope, and in charity. In a manner befitting the greatest vision our hearts and minds can conceive to meet the challenge of these times.

Let us rise nobly to this effort to uplift and assist these, whom none yet love and protect … and in whose shoes each of us might … but for God’s Grace … find ourselves.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

California: Prison Reform and Childhood Mental Filters . by Alice B. Clagett

Dear Ones,

I just read a thought provoking article. This short article is a great read …

Link: “Are We Chicken about Prison Reform?” by Steven Greenhut, 25 July 2013 …   http://humanevents.com/2013/07/25/are-we-chicken-about-prison-reform/ ..

There is a point I liked especially, about how California Proposition 2, which decried cramped quarters for chickens, passed and became law in 2008.

Yet many prison inmates live in Security Housing Units (SHUs) — 7½-by-12-foot windowless concrete cells. It is not like they have a bookshelf in there, for furthering their education. Au contraire.

Basically, we Californians are interested in prison reform for chickens, and we are overlooking the humans in the same predicament.

Compute, compute?

It seems to me, the thing that might make the most difference might be a simple shift of emphasis, from punishment to rehabilitation, instruction in a well-paying trade, and a chance for education in the realm of spirit, whether it be a traditional faith, meditation, or another path of their choosing.

And then, why make upset, angry men more upset, more angry? Why not allow conjugal or even sex worker visits, as in Mexican prisons? We could quibble over details, but the thought’s the thing. Upliftment, a chance to live a happy life on the outside.

Remember when we were children, and a quarrel came up? Was there a time when a parent smacked you? What did you feel? Did you feel like being a productive member of your family? Or did you feel like hitting your parent back?

The very next step, psychologically speaking, is ‘projection’ … the little child walks out and smacks the dog ….

So smacking just makes matters worse. Why should we Americans continue an ineffective mental filter instilled in us before the age of 5? We’re brighter than that!

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

Dear Ones,

I am looking over the propositions on the California ballot today, and have come to some interesting realizations regarding ways to solve the issues we Americans face as a nation today.

THE QUESTION OF SAFE SEX FOR THE PORNOGRAPHY INDUSTRY

In California, Proposition 60 has been put forth, regarding requiring employers to have actors in pornography films use condoms, and to provide vaccines and medical checkups. [This proposition on the 8 November 2016 ballot failed to pass.] This is an issue sidestepped by the California League of Women Voters, whose opinions I value because they reflect my concerns for children’s and women’s rights. So I took a closer look …

SEX WORKERS AND SOCIETAL EXPECTATIONS

There are issues around occupations that do not conform to societal expectations, such as the sex worker industry. The issues are: Should Americans be allowed to view pornography, or is this practice unethical? Ought punitive measures be in place regarding pornography? If so, what punitive measures? For instance, why not just let all the sex workers die of AIDS? That would serve them right, would it not?

These are not thoughts of our conscious minds. Rather, they are upwellings of negative emotion from our subconscious minds.

Many people have learned, in early childhood, that sexual expression needs to be corralled and closeted … in a bedroom, for example. That the sex act needs to be performed quietly, so that no one can hear. That only certain ways of expressing sexuality are ok; others (the list is long) are not ok. In the case of women, ‘that a lady need not express herself through orgasm’. The notion that children may not feel sexual till they reach 16, or 18 (when in fact, children begin to learn about sexuality, and to express it, in very early childhood).

These sexual taboos, which vary from family to family, and from culture to culture, are the source of Soul wounding in early childhood, which imbalances the second chakra and interferes with the function of the heart chakra.

And so, when we consider the issue of sex workers and condoms, we are really dipping into the mire of societal taboos regarding sexuality, and not just dealing with a straightforward issue of what might be good for disempowered sex workers.

BRINGING SEX TABOOS TO THE LIGHT OF CONSCIOUS AWARENESS

Up until recently,  the savvy rhetorician could manipulate societal taboos to win kudos for personal gain … In this way, laws have been passed in America that reinforce early childhood Soul wounding and countermand the common good.

This is a new day on New Earth, and all of us are now able to arrive at better solutions to societal issues. This is because the common person … you and I … are rising to an understanding of the subconscious mind. We can move beyond these subconscious barriers, and on to new, more positive solutions to social issues.

ON DEALING WITH THE PRACTICAL ISSUE OF SEX WORK, INSTEAD OF PROJECTING BLAME

In the case of condoms for sex workers, the subconscious negative burden of America is then notion aforementioned: Why not let them all die of AIDS?

OK, let’s look at that. While the sex worker occupation is socially unacceptable, it is also avidly sought after by both men and women. This has been the case down through history; there were merchants, women, slaves, and ‘canabae’ (1) who were camp followers for the Roman legion, and this has been the case for armies down through history. In a civilian context, this is also true.

In past, this issue has been dealt with in a subconscious context: Our subconscious mind wants to place blame, to pass judgment, regarding this activity. For women, our own husbands and their friends are engaged in this activity. For men, our wives would call it quits were we to come out in favor of this activity, though we may personally find it an attractive prospect. What to do? The answer has been, to project the blame and judgement we feel toward our spouse onto the sex workers.

This act of projection is one of the subconscious mechanisms that are now coming to the light of Awareness. It’s becoming clear that the issues reside within the spousal relationship, between man and wife. And more specifically, they lie in the clearings of the Soul wounding of the second chakra now taking place on Earth through the incoming photonic Light. As these clearings take place, the negative onus of societal expectations rises to our conscious awareness. Thus spouses can begin to speak frankly of the issue of sex work and its utilization by the husband, or by the wife.

In the meantime, there is, for many Americans, still the negative subconscious burden in place. This may be overcome by pointing out the flow-through effect of labeling such an occupation ‘illegal’. Thus we may steer our course with an eye to the common good, rather than to that subconscious bias to which we all fall prey from time to time. Here are the issues at hand:

DISEMPOWERMENT OF SEX WORKERS

In America today, there are laws in place against sex workers. Yet laws are not enforced, as logic would propose, against those who frequent the sex trade.

  • This legal inequity is held in place by the subconscious nature of our disapproval of this occupation, and effected through the subconscious process known as ‘projection’.
  • We are using the legal system to project our negativity towards the sex worker occupation on sex workers, instead of dealing with the issues as husband-wife and parent-child issues.
  • Because of this legal inconsistency, sex workers are among the disempowered in America.

SEX WORKER SAFETY

There is a rising sentiment to protect workers in America. Workers in many occupations are protected by laws regarding worker safety. However, in the case of occupations judged by the public to be unethical, there is no safety protection.

This concept of safety includes, in the case of sex workers, the danger of disease, including eventually fatal disease, danger of physical injury by clients and by pimps, and danger to life itself, as in the case of snuff films.

THE FLOW-THROUGH EFFECT: SEX WORKER SAFETY AND THE COMMON GOOD

Sex workers know that admission of infection by HIV can be fatal; yet sex work invariably leads to infection. For the sake of life and limb, test results are falsified. This, to the sex worker, necessary precaution then puts those who utilize their services at risk of infection.

Thus the danger of disease, including eventually fatal disease, flows through to those that use the services of sex workers, and from there to their spouses, and from there onward to circle of intimate acquaintances of both spouses.

Clair Stories about Women Having Sex with Fitness Instructors

I have had a number of clair reports about M2F sex work through fitness centers, targeting older women, who divorce their husbands, marry a fitness instructor, contract HIV, and are ‘taken to the cleaners’ by the new husband.

Clair Stories about Children Having Sex with Illegal Drug Dealers

Also in the clair realm, there are reports of elementary school children trading M2Child sex for drugs; thus the children are also contracting HIV by junior high school age.

Pornography as Sex Education for Young Adults

Here is another flow-through effect involving children: Pornography films are tools by means of which our young people learn about the sex act. Use of condoms in pornography films would help our young people understand the importance of safe sex practices.

Clair Stories about Sex Workers and Law Enforcement

There are clair stories to the effect that the flow-through effect extends to law enforcement and their spouses, because of widespread practice of unprotected jail rape of sex workers.

Suppression of Data on HIV infection

Data on HIV infection in the United States have been suppressed …

Link: “Compendium: HIV / AIDS Pandemic, and Data Suppression by the Centers for Disease Control,” by Alice B. Clagett, published on 10 July 2016; updated … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-5QE ..

Why is this? It is possible that HIV incidence began to step up in 2014, and that many more people are involved than is generally known. Whether this is true, or not, can only be determined when the facts are, by some intrepid Soul in the Centers for Disease Control, finally brought to the light of public scrutiny.

Summary

From this I conclude that  the flow-through effect from sex work involves a broad range of people. It affects men who frequent sex workers. But also, women and children. And possibly many more people than published data have led us to believe.

CONCLUSIONS REGARDING THE ISSUE OF REQUIRING SAFE SEX FOR ACTORS IN THE PORNOGRAPHY INDUSTRY

  • Sex workers frequently act in pornography films for extra income.
  • If they do not practice safe sex, then they will get HIV.
  • If the health of sex workers is not protected, the flow-through groups will get HIV. This might include you and me.
  • And so, it is in our own best interest, and for the common good, that the health of actors in the pornography industry be protected.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

Dear Ones,

INTRODUCTION

Here is a video describing three instances of the male drive to territorial aggression and mate acquisition, as manifested on the astral plane.

  • Hard drug use on the weekends ratchets up the male drives to territorial aggression and mate acquisition, which are feral instincts generated from the gut brain or ‘lower triangle’.
  • These drives activates when a man is sleeping or drowsy, especially, as mentioned above, when under the influence of hard drugs.
  • Astrally speaking, women want to defend their ‘nest’, but unlike men, don’t want to strike out and defend their territory at a distance.
  • For men: Since 2012, as a result of the Awakening, the male feral drives to territorial aggression and mate acquisition have become much less pronounced. My suggestion: Should you find these drives asserting themselves on the astral plane, talk to your desire elemental and let it know all is well; it need not be too concerned about defending your astral turf or searching out new women astrally.

There are an Outline and an edited Summary after the video …

VIDEO BY ALICE

OUTLINE OF THE VIDEO

Here are the three case descriptions, clairly observed …

  1.  The Case of the Young Father: A young father defending his territory from a male perceived as as intruder, at some distance from the father and his family.
  2. The Case of the Peeping Tom: An older gentleman with a samskara of peeping tom, rape of the peeped upon woman before adulthood, and disclosure and ostracism by his church in his early youth. How the samskara, which was characterized by low self-esteem, was reactivated. How this illustrates the male drives to territorial aggression and to mate acquisition.  Importance of our noticing and taking action in the world to avoid being at the effect of people’s reactivated samskaras.
  3. The Case of the Astral Voyeurs: Intrusions of astral bodies of men into my bedroom over the years, illustrative of male drives to territorial aggression and mate acquisition.

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice. I Am of the Stars.

I wanted to talk a little today about the feral male drive to acquire and hold territory, which I have not really discussed per se before. But yet I have run into three instances of it, that we might put into perspective.

First I would like to say that it seems that the Awakening process is bringing these drives to Light. And so they are expressing themselves through the astral plane, amongst men. My intention in putting this forth, in a video, is that men’s minds might be put more at rest about it in case they run into it, and become aware that they are doing it … because I think all men are doing it, to some extent.

1. The Case of the Young Father

One instance that I ran into recently was when I was travelling out to the desert, and I stayed in a room on a weekend. Of course, that is always just a little bit chancy, because the feral drives of the noosphere are ratcheted up Friday and Saturday nights because of the drug use that happens … especially hard drug use, such as vodka, bourbon, and scotch; use of the often illegal recreational drugs that are considered hard, such as opioids (those pills that are sometimes prescribed).

To continue: I stayed in a motel … I believe it was the Mojave Desert Inn on the Mojave-Desert Highway, quite close to the Mojave Air & Space Port … where, next door and around the corner were staying a young couple and their very young, baby child. As the night went on, the couple’s feral drive to sexuality increased, and they acted accordingly, it seems.

At the same time, a person who was far, far away … more than 100 miles away … took an interest in me, on the feral plane, and sent his astral body to within a mile of where I was. There it was intercepted by the man of the couple that were exercising their feral drive to sex.

As to this second male, it was almost like his astral body was bounced and jounced around. The attack I sensed as being not a mortal attack, or life-threatening, but rather, a warning attack. I saw the one attacking male bouncing around the astral form of the other male, who was so shook up by that, that he immediately zoomed back to the place where he lived … back to the body.

So there is an instance of a male defending his territory … especially his spouse … from another intruding male on the astral plane. I found that very interesting, because I do not think I have ever seen a woman do that. Women just do not seem to have that drive to defend their territory at such a distance. They want to defend their own home, their own nest. They do not have that long reach of acquisition in their territorial instincts. So there is that.

2. The Case of the Peeping Tom

There was another instance, some while back, that was more serious to me. I was staying at a place where I had paid to be for a while … I believe this was a place near Bayfield, Colorado. It was just as I began to stay there. The place was very close … adjacent to … a house where a couple lived. And the place where I was staying had been lived in by the father-in-law, which meant to me that the couple was used to coming over to this place that I rented, and treating it as part of their own territory, you see.

And then the father-in-law passed on. And then they began renting it out. I had rented the place, and I was still not at home in it. One of the problems with the place was there was a downstairs door that opened outward from my apartment or extension, into a work area that was used by the couple. So there was no real way that I could secure that door from my side. And further, in the door was a large dog doorway that could not be secured. So while the work area could be locked from the outside door on the other side of the office, access to my quarters could not be secured for me personally, so that I could be protected from whoever could get into the office.

The very first night that I was there, I noticed, on the clair plane, that the man in the household had drunk quite a bit of vodka. And vodka is one of those hard drugs that immediately short-circuit the Lower Mental Body down to the inferior, low position of the desire elemental, and that activates the feral drives, without the inhibiting instincts of the Lower Mental Body, which sees the practical nature of our activities in the world.

In other words, as people are always saying, drinking vodka short-circuits the brain. And that is what happened that night: According to my clair visions and hearing, the man began to have visions of something that had happened to him in his childhood. He had had a habit of being a peeping tom.

Now, being a peeping tom has two categories to it, in the feral drive category. One is the desire for sex. And the second is the desire for territoriality. So you are intruding on a woman’s territory so as to have sex with her.

So this person had had that quality; and then, apparently, a catastrophic thing had happened to him in his teens. He had intruded on that territory of that female that he was used to doing peeping tom activities with, and had actually raped her. And then he had been caught out, by the community, and had been subject to social opprobrium: Everybody despised him for it.

And so, all his life he was dealing with this low self-esteem that he felt because of an early young person event. And here it came up again: The possibility of being a voyeur, a peeping tom, had come to him.

As it turned out, it rose up … it surged up. The samskara became very active in his consciousness because of the vodka. He had intention, first, to have sex with his wife, which he did. And then later, he had a plan to come and get through that doorway and repeat the early young adulthood Soul wounding that happened to him by raping me, and maybe killing me if I resisted.

Well, this set me on edge, especially since it was my first day there. So I fixed up the door with pots and pans, and things like that, so that, if he should try to open the dog door, or if the door should be opened outward, towards his office, by him, then I would know right away, because it would make a lot of noise. And so it was booby trapped; I could not secure it, but I could make sure that I had an alarm if anything happened. And nothing happened that night … which was great.

The next day I went out, and when I came back, some things were different in my apartment. The first thing was that the door of the closet in the bedroom had been closed. Now I had left the door open so that my cat could have a little place to stay in there, away from everything … sort of a hiding place. So I had fixed it up very nicely for her. And when I came back, the door was closed, so she could not get in.

The second thing that happened is that a steak knife and a sharp fork that I bought the day before … which were the only things I had that might be considered a weapon, in the apartment, were missing. It was very obvious, because I had very few possessions there.

The conclusion I drew was that my territory had been intruded upon, and the ‘weapons’ had been removed, because the man of the couple had intention to assault me that night … or as soon as possible. That was what I thought. In other words, he had a plan, and he had implemented the first part of the plan. And further, I felt he thought that territory was his territory, and that he had a right to come into it anytime and change anything that he wanted to change.

So immediately I gave notice and left. That is the second instance, exacerbated by early childhood catastrophic Soul wounding experience. And that, to my clair understanding, was a more serious case of feral drive to acquire territory by a male.

3. The Case of the Astral Voyeurs

In the neighborhood where I live, since I moved into my house in West Hills, over the last yea so many years, there have been numerous intrusions of astral bodies of men into my bedroom when I was asleep. At first I would take this very personally, because I am a very private person, and I do not like strangers in my bedroom when I am asleep; it bothers me.

But then as time went on, I began to understand about this drive, and about how men’s unconscious astral bodies, their desire elementals, will do this while they are asleep, without their conscious minds being aware of it … being there to check this activity and stop it.

Actually, over the last year or so it has become much less prevalent. It has narrowed down to occasional visits from one person or another person of male gender. So it very rarely happens these days. That is a good sign; it is a sign that men are rising to awareness of the feral drive to acquire property or territory.

Concluding Remarks

And so I just thought I would mention that these things do happen, without our awareness, on both the physical and the astral plane, especially if we are using hard drugs. Or if we are sound asleep they will happen, on the astral plane.

If I were a man right now, I would say that the only thing that I would need to do is: Whenever I was aware that this drive was being exercised, I would talk to my desire elemental, and explain to it that the territory that I have is enough and is sufficient; and how much I appreciate my desire elemental for trying to do the best for me … so that it retains good will and a good relationship to me … and so that my words haul it in with regard to territorial aggression.

That is really all I have to say about it right now. I hope it is taken in the right light. It is intended kindly. It is intended to help with the understanding of the Awakening that is happening right now.

You all take care. Love you lots.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

Dear Ones,

THE METAPHOR OF THE DUCK IN THE BATHTUB

Imagine a little duck in a bathtub that is filling with water. The little duck is bobbing up and down because of the waves created by the water from the tub faucet …

Video: “Baby Duck swimming in sink,” by barbaroluvr, 9 March 2010, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jxmYXwqFe9c  Ok, true, it’s a sink and the water level’s not rising…. pretty cute, though!

Now here is the metaphor … You are the little duck. The bathtub is Earth. The water coming in is the Incoming Light, the grace of Divine love uplifting you. When you bob ‘down’ you are ‘having a Dark Attack’. When you bob ‘up’ the angels are protecting you. Overall, the level of the tub water stays pretty much the same, but it is all the while rising.

BALANCE: THE GODDESS MA’AT AND REVERSION TO THE MEAN

This action of water ‘chopping up’ and then reverting to the mean level of the tub water is an energy of universal ‘balance’ that reminds me of the ancient Egyptian goddess Ma’at, who personified the forces of truth, balance, order, law and morality.

HOW MA’AT ACHIEVES EQUILIBRIUM ON GAIA

This ‘bringing back into equilibrium’ of Light forces and Dark forces is expressed in the world today, even as the Shift occurs, in several ways, at least as far as I can tell….

Equilibrium within a Personal Timeline

It may express itself in myself personally as a feeling of chaos and Darkness, followed by a feeling of elevation and greater clarity.

Multi-Nodal Geographic Equilibrium

It may express itself in myself as a feeling of prolonged clarity and loving energy, juxtaposed geographically or psychically with a ‘nearness’ of Dark energy, usually flowing through the subconscious minds and Soul wounding of other human beings, who themselves are on the mend … who are through this ‘attack’ process becoming aware of their own Soul wounding, so that they may transform and clear it.

‘Wobble Dance’: Simultaneous Personal Dyadic Equilibrium … The ‘Opposite Twin Flame’ Interaction

It may express itself as an ‘opposite twin flame’ interaction …. one Soul expresses more Light, and the other expresses less Light. Thus the opposite twin flame electromagnetics keep both humans locked in a ‘Wobble Dance’ … one goes a little bit higher, the other pulls that person back down, and both rise with the Incoming Light.

Geophysical ‘Opposite Twin Flame’ Interactions along Earth’s Ley Lines or Lines of Longitude and Latitude

California: Los Angeles … Mount Shasta. It may express itself as a geophysical ‘opposite twin flame’ interaction …as in the case of the interlocked energies of Los Angeles (shiver me timbers! There’s some pretty Dark stuff clearing out of LA these days!) and the mountain energy of Mount Shasta in Northern California (Christed ET and Christ consciousness ‘opposing’ energy). However, like the human opposite twin flame interlockings, the geophysical opposite twin flame interlockings … painful as they may feel to the Souls involved … are also slowly rising with the incoming tide of Light. Other examples of the geophysical:

Middle East: Israel … Palestine … Gaza. The war energy of Israel-Palestine-Gaza is being balanced and healed by the conscious peace energy of the Gatherings around the Pond.

Ukraine. The Ukraine war energy [at the time of writing of this blog] is being balanced by Lightworkers bathed in the healing energy of the devic world, including nature spirits, elementals, and their representatives the dragonflies, unicorns, and dolphins.

As I understand it, those humans who are doing Earth Light grid work are consciously assisting Ma’at in balancing light and Dark as Earth ascends.

Soul Wounding Energies Balanced by Soul Healing Energies

And in terms of clarity of the Soul energy of humankind: The Soul wounding energy of conscious Darkness is being balanced by the Soul healing energy of the Cities of Light.

Low Sounds Balanced by High Sounds

Those Lightworkers who send forth sacred healing sound help balance the ‘tearing down’ … low subconscious sounds emanating from Earth’s cities and highways right now … These latter ‘low’ sounds come from gas-driven motors … automobiles, HVAC in homes, even hair driers … all kinds of engines. (Note that the ‘low’ engine sounds have their own purpose; they tear into our subconscious secrets, releasing them to the Light, and then the Lightworkers’ beautiful sacred healing sounds build up our new consciousness.)

HOW HATHOR TIMELINE TECHNOLOGIES ARE ASSISTING IN MAINTAINING DYNAMIC EQUILIBRIUM ON GAIA

All are rising.

Timelines are also weaving in and out to maintain the balance of the Shift. Some timelines wobble ‘down’, others wobble ‘up’ … but all are destined to reunite through the beautiful balancing energy of Ma’at.

The Hathors are assisting in this timeline balancing work, and also in purifying the waters of Earth through sound. This latter work helps relieve the stress on Earth’s magma and on Her tectonic plates as the Shift continues.

Sometimes too, as I hear it, those with too great a Light are circling out of the current timeline, into what might be termed ‘the future’ of our own timeline, and then they are surfing back into our timeline when Dark events unfold here on Earth. I’m very grateful to say that this circling back of humans of higher Light is taking place as the needed for balance of Light and Dark.

And probably Ma’at is protecting us in ways unknown as all humanity is uplifted.

In love, light and laughter,
I Am of the Stars
