  3. Theses figures are telling: In Australia, since vaccinations started in February 2021, there have been 574 ICU admissions. Only 13 people, or two per cent, had received two doses, while 69 - the equivalent to 12 per cent - had a single shot. The remaining 492 patients were unvaccinated. Vast majority of ICU patients are unvaccinated https://www.sbs.com.au/news/vast-majority-of-icu-patients-unvaccinated?cid=newsapp:socialshare:copylink

  4. The Birthing Unit Director of Liverpool Hospital Sydney, and a new mum herself pleaded: I understand the concept of COVID vaccination can be concerning to some and it seems we have approved and implemented the vaccine very quickly, but the technology behind the development of the vaccine has been around for about 10 years. Many women are worried that the side effects of the vaccine in pregnancy have not been researched enough. I want to reassure everyone that the safety profile of the vaccines in pregnancy has been studied extensively. Over 100,000 women were included in studies from the US and the UK. These have not demonstrated any adverse outcomes for your baby. The vaccine does not increase the risk of miscarriage or structural abnormalities for your baby. It does not affect your fertility. What poses the greatest risk to women and their babies is not the vaccine — it is the COVID-19 infection itself. Having COVID-19 while you're pregnant means you're at double the risk of needing an ICU admission, you have an increased risk of needing invasive ventilation and you're at increased risk of requiring a pre-term delivery. It also doubles your risk of stillbirth. Most of the women who have been admitted at our hospital are unvaccinated and none of them have been fully vaccinated.

  6. It is truly liberating to know the truth about the meaning of life in this system of things. We don't have to feel like we are stuck in it forever or feel like there is no light at the end of the tunnel. Jehovah truly hasn't left us to guess what the future holds and it's not dim or bleak. We have a sure future and a hope. We are set free from the worldly mentality that this is all that there will be. Hang in there friends, We have a future in store for us and it's a very good one.

  7. We have more reasons to be grateful to our loving Father Jehovah. With all the blessings of serving Jehovah we receive now & the greater freedom His Son’s mighty reign will bring us. We just need to continue having hope in Our Father & His Son, that hope is like an anchor that’s holding us fast.

  9. Indeed where would we be without the truth? Personally I dread to think 🙄 I’m not sure that I would be coping very well at all with this crazy messed up world… instead I’m set free in my mind, inner peace along with the hope that we all enjoy. the freedom and joy that we will experience in the future is something beyond our comprehension… imagine Satan out of the way, Jehovah’s name vindicated and peace at last

  10. Australia is more or less following the footsteps of Singapore, soon we are going to have economy opening up for vaccinated people, and limits imposed on unvaccinated. Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews has sent a clear message as to what the future of the economy looks like in the state, saying proof of double vaccination will now be the price of entry."We're going to move to a situation where, to protect the health system, we are going to lock out people who are not vaccinated and can be," Mr Andrews said.https://www.abc.net.au/news/2021-09-06/daniel-andrews-vaccine-passport-double-vaccinated/100435606

  17. For a little bit of history, the domain name www.jwtalk.net was registered on September 4th, 2006, which was 15 years ago this month. We started as a members only forum for local friends in local congregations using a freeware script called MyBB. Not before long, it lost it's initial traction. Then, a previous JW Forum was taken offline and so we made the effort to invite those abandoned forum refugees to join over here instead. We eventually switched to a freeware script called Phorum and couldn't migrate the MyBB database. Once Facebook became available to the public in general, activity in the Phorum suffered tremendously, and so we decided to abandon the referral-only approach and go Public, allowing search engines like Google to find us and index our content and promoting the forum in various JW Facebook groups. This worked out well, and membership in the JWTalk Online Community of Jehovah's Witnesses began to grow. As other JW Forums, MSN Email Lists, and Yahoo Groups, were discontinued, their members found their way here. Today, JWTalk.net is known to be the largest and busiest, and for many the one and only pro-JW community on the internet. We rigorously vet new member applications and work diligently to keep unqualified, apostate, and opposed individuals out and our boards clean of their harmful propaganda. With the help of our loving brothers and sisters here in the community, we've seen publishers dedicated themselves to Jehovah through water baptism. We've seen members who were struggling emotionally encouraged and strengthened by the Christian love they've received from brothers and sisters who may be on the opposite sides of the globe. We've seen members struggling spiritually grow and now they are the ones encouraging others by their fine comments. Many of us have travelled and met other members face to face and sat next to them at their Kingdom Halls. The community has been a blessing during the pandemic as we have been able to enjoy good association with one another any time of day. “Look! How good and how pleasant it is For brothers to dwell together in unity!” Psalm 133:1 Of course, none of this would work if it wasn't for your love for Jehovah and for your brothers and sisters. Let us continue to "have love for the whole association of brothers (and sisters!)" - 1 Peter 2:17 YOU are what makes this community wonderful, because YOU love Jehovah, YOU love your spiritual family (his organization), and YOU have his blessing.

  18. https://www.reuters.com/world/us/biden-announce-alliance-with-britain-australia-tech-cyber-defense-politico-2021-09-15/ https://www.politico.com/news/2021/09/15/biden-deal-uk-australia-defense-tech-sharing-511877 As the King of the North's ally China has been trying to take over the World trade route of the South China Seas, pushing against and threatening the peace of the Philippines; Taiwan; Japan and Australia, President Biden has reached out to the British Prime Minister and UK's ally in the British Commonwealth =Australia to help Australia gain nuclear armament strength in it's seas with British and US technologies. He states that he wants to come to the aid of UK & Australia because he wants to keep the South China seas free for secure World trading and Peace and Security to the countries in that area from the threat from China and it's allies. After a time of wondering what had happened to the Anglo-American alliance as each country suffered through pandemic, economic problems, political upheavals, cyber attacks from China and Russia, and internal troubles making them seem weaker, we observe if they now realize the need to show a stronger alliance against the building of fortified islands and increased military strength threatening them in the South China Seas.

  26. I have been getting a steady stream of reports on my Volcanoes & Earthquakes app stating that earthquake swarms are occurring at shallow depths under the Combre Vieja volcano on La Palma, an island in the Canary Island chain, off the western coast of Africa. Today, I was informed that the eruption alert level was raised to yellow. There are dozens of volcanoes erupting earth wide EVERY DAY, and I don't usually get alerts for them. This made me wonder what was so special about this particular volcano that it would warrant my app sending me daily reports. So I Googled it, and this is what I found: Now I know what is so special about La Combre Vieja volcano on La Palma Island off the western coast of Africa.

  27. Not sure if this should go here or in the "computers" section, but I have downloaded most of the broadcasts & tagged them with their content. I didn't think to tag them at the beginning, and I missed a couple along the way. But perhaps y'all will enjoy this list. And if any have a more complete catalogue of the broadcasts and can fill in the blanks I have with their topics, please feel free to help me out.

  28. In the province of Ontario a passport system starts rolling out on the 22nd after being pressured for weeks. Full rollout for Oct 22nd with QR code and digital, and just this evening Alberta premier bowed to the pressure to introduce a passport system too, since Alberta has one of the highest rates of infection in the country. Ontario has more population than the 3 western provinces combined.

  37. Wednesday, September 15 You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.—John 8:32. Think of the blessings you enjoy because you have been liberated from long-held unscriptural beliefs. What a joy to have such freedom! You can expect greater freedom to come. In the near future, Jesus will act decisively to eliminate false religion and corrupt human rulership. God will protect “a great crowd” who serve him, and then he will allow them to enjoy blessings in an earthly paradise. (Rev. 7:9, 14) A vast number will be resurrected and will have the opportunity to be liberated from all the effects of Adam’s sin. (Acts 24:15) During the Thousand Year Reign, Jesus and his corulers will help to raise mankind to perfect physical and spiritual health. This time of restoration and liberation will be like the Jubilee in Israel. The result for all on earth who serve Jehovah loyally will be human perfection, free from sin. w19.12 12-13 ¶14-16

  38. Rain has ended. No the weather is weird this year. It has been commented on by UN weather and even politicians that the weather has 4Xs more storms than 50 years ago costing 7Xs the amount of damage. I live 2 hours west of TO, although my oldest son lives there. No desire to live there.

  41. In fact the MAKER of Ivermectin had this to say: https://www.merck.com/news/merck-statement-on-ivermectin-use-during-the-covid-19-pandemic/ That company is NOT spending MILLIONS to NOT sell its own product. Instead they are actively examining findings and there are studies being done, but none that have been conclusive as a "cure". There is only "anecdotal" evidence.
