A video shows a piece of raw zombie meat crawling out of a plate

People are fascinated with the possibility of a zombie apocalypse occurring at any time. Friends and loved ones who turn against you, an enemy that refuses to stop, and they all want your flesh. A world in which the dead do not remain dead. However, we are told that zombies are fictional creations, and have little or no scientific basis. But this does not prevent several government organizations from revealing themselves to be preparing for a zombie apocalypse over the years. For example, the website of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) provides information on zombie preparedness.

The posts on their page include links to a zombie preparation blog and strategies to prepare against the undead. In addition, it provides a brief history of zombies with a list of items for an emergency kit. But the CDC is not the only organization that prepares for the zombie apocalypse. In 2011 (coincidentally, the same year the CDC began its zombie preparation campaign), the US Department of Defense launched a strategy to combat a zombie apocalypse:  CONPLAN 8888-11. The plan consisted of combat strategies for what could be the last battle against humanity. Be that as it may, it seems that the zombie apocalypse is more real than we think. Or at least that is what many Internet users believe after seeing how a piece of raw meat moving by itself on a table.

Zombie meat

This is the strange moment when a piece of raw ‘zombie’ meat seems to creep out of a restaurant’s food plate before falling to the ground. The video was posted on Facebook by Rie Phillips, from Florida, two weeks ago and since then it has become a viral phenomenon, with more than four million views.

The video shows a piece of raw meat on the plate in an unidentified restaurant. Suddenly, a part of skinless meat moves forward, crawling out of the plate. When he falls on the table, he turns and the woman he is recording screams. The meat again has jerky movements, which causes it to fall off the table before the woman screams again. And how could it be otherwise, Internet users have come up with a lot of theories about how the meat moved, some suggested it was false and others suggested that the nerve endings in the meat could have allowed it to move.

However, most skeptical believe that someone put a piece of thread to the meat to move it. But there were also people who assured that this video shows that the zombie apocalypse and that it can happen at any time. Moreover, they recalled a study conducted in 2015 and published in the prestigious British Medical Journal, in which researchers from Kent State University in Ohio used a zombie virus to demonstrate exactly how such a pandemic could be spread by the world and the devastating effects on humanity.

The study entitled  “The Zombie Infections: Epidemiology, Treatment, and Prevention”  used as examples the Solanum virus, the rabies virus, and the spread of the Trixie virus. The researchers discovered by surprise that certain infections could cause a true zombie apocalypse, such as black plague or mad cow disease, and that the spread of Yersinia pestis (bubonic plague) and cordyceps fungus (mad cow disease) they are viruses that could be transmitted more easily through bites.

But this is not the only study on the subject. In 2003 the “Zombie Survival Guide” was published, where they offered recommendations to prepare for a large-scale infection of bacteria or viruses with the ability to transform people into true living dead. The guide was developed to help governments around the world cope with the reality of zombies.

Who knows if this piece of meat moving could be infected with some kind of zombie virus. It’s a possibility.

What is your opinion about the zombie meat of the video?

A New Pandemic Could Kill 80 Million People, Experts Warn

Are we ready for the next global pandemic? Maybe not.

Let’s back up, though. In 2018, the World Health Organization and the World Bank co-convened the Global Preparedness Monitoring Board (GPMB), an independent group of experts focused on global health emergencies.

On Wednesday, the GPMB published a report assessing the world’s current preparedness for a major health crisis and — spoiler alert — things aren’t looking great.

After taking into account everything from emerging political trends to climate change, the team concluded that “there is a very real threat of a rapidly moving, highly lethal pandemic of a respiratory pathogen killing 50 to 80 million people and wiping out nearly 5 percent of the world’s economy.”

“A global pandemic on that scale would be catastrophic, creating widespread havoc, instability and insecurity,” the authors continued. “The world is not prepared.”

The world might not be prepared for such a crisis right now, but the GPMB experts think it still has time to get on the right track.

They even outlined seven specific actions world leaders could take to increase our preparedness, including the full implementation of International Health Regulations, increased investment in vaccine research and development, and the establishment of strong national preparedness systems.

“For too long, we have allowed a cycle of panic and neglect when it comes to pandemics: we ramp up efforts when there is a serious threat, then quickly forget about them when the threat subsides,” the report’s authors wrote. “It is well past time to act.”

US Analysts Paints Grim Prospects of US-Russia Nuclear War, 18M Casualties Per Hour 

Moscow has repeatedly cautioned the US against deploying short and medium-range missiles near Russia’s borders in the wake of Washington’s withdrawal from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty.

American researchers at Princeton University have presented the results of their modelling of the most drastic scenario of a conflict between NATO forces and Russia with the use of nuclear weapons. In a video accompanying the research, called Plan A, the analysts show step by step how the two sides would arrive at almost complete mutual annihilation.

In the opinion of the Princeton researchers, a conventional war would turn nuclear after the sides use tactical nuclear strikes in order to halt the advance of conventional forces. The next step would be a massive nuclear exchange, with Russian aviation practically annihilating Europe and nearby NATO bases, which in turn would fire retaliatory strikes against Russian launch sites.

After this, according to the analysts, Russia and the US would likely use most of the remaining arsenals to destroy each other’s key military objects and would use the remaining nukes to target the most populated cities and economic centres to prevent a rapid recovery. The modelled nuclear war is expected to leave all parties involved devastated.

According to the researchers’ estimations, an overall exchange would take less than five hours in total and leave 34 million dead and 57.4 million injured immediately. This, in turn, means that the projected conflict could result in around 18 million casualties each hour. The analysts added that the numbers would rise after the last strikes due to nuclear fallout and “other long-term effects”.

The scientists indicated that the simulated stand-off was based on the real nuclear force postures of the countries involved and was made to “highlight the potentially catastrophic consequences of current US and Russian nuclear war plans”.

Asteroid Almost Twice as Big as London’s Shard Tower Heading Toward Earth

Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk has previously claimed that the Earth has no defense against giant asteroids approaching the planet, with NASA and SpaceX currently developing systems that would help to redirect space rocks from bumping into the Earth.

A monster asteroid larger than the world’s largest buildings, including London’s the Shard, will be passing near the Earth at a speed of 23,112 km per hour on 14 September, Live Science reported, citing the Center for Near Earth Object Studies (CNEOS).

The huge space rock called 2000 QW7 is approximately measured to be between 290 and 650 meters in diameter, which in comparison to 311-metre the Shard and 828-metre Burj Khalifa seems quite immense.

Nevertheless, it is quite unlikely that the giant will hit the Earth, according to CNEOS, as 2000 QW7 will pass within 0.03564 astronomical units from our planet, which is around 5.3 million km.

As the asteroid, just like our planet, orbits the Sun, the last time it approached the Earth was around 18 years ago, on 1 September 2000, and it is expected to come close again in 2038 (if we survive this time).

Previously Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk had sparked fears about Earth not being able to defend itself against giant asteroids, such as the 99942 asteroid Apophis known as “God of Chaos”, that are considered potentially dangerous if they come within 7.4 million km from Earth, according to space organizations.

Elon Musk’s SpaceX and NASA are reportedly working together now on an asteroid redirect mission impeding the arrival of Apophis in April 2029, which will test Earth’s ability to defend itself against giant asteroids.
