#1. One step closer to capped programmable money
Britons face 20,000 digital pound cap under Bank of England plan
By Huw Jones
LONDON, Feb 7 (Reuters) – Britons would be limited to 20,000 digital pounds ($24,000) each if the country goes ahead with a digital currency, Bank of England Deputy Governor Jon Cunliffe said on Tuesday.
Britain’s government said on Monday that it and the BoE were pressing on with work on a possible digital pound that was likely to enter circulation in the second half of this decade and be held in a “wallet” provided by banks, although no final decision has been made.
“We propose a limit of between 10,000 pounds and 20,000 pounds per individual as the appropriate balance between managing risks and supporting wide usability of the digital pound,” Cunliffe said in a speech.
A limit of 10,000 pounds would mean that three quarters of people could receive their pay in digital pounds as well as holding pre-existing balances in the same account, while a 20,000 pound limit would allow almost everyone to use digital pounds for day-to-day transactions, Cunliffe said.
Money above the cap would be “swept” into a customer’s commercial bank account given that a digital pound would not be a means for storing wealth, he told members of UK Finance, a banking industry body.
#2. Interview with Dr. John Day
The story of Dr. John Day in Texas is an illustration of just how upside-down the medical establishment is today
All throughout the “COVID pandemic,” Dr. Day was serving his patients and doing his job with soul
Not only was he doing his job with soul — being the only one at his clinic who was actually treating COVID patients — he was also helping patients on his free time and volunteering at the clinic by growing a community garden
When the vaccine mandates were announced, Dr. Day declined the injection and also spoke up against the dehumanization of the “unvaccinated”
While, based on Abbot’s executive order, the clinic administration could not proceed with the plan of firing Dr. Day for declining the injection, he was none the less fired in October 2021 for “offending” people with his views and for helping a disabled patient in a wheelchair run a difficult errand, on his “off” day

#5. Masks: for comic relief that is no longer very comic after all the abuse that was done upon us
Naturally, I felt suspicious and opined that I should do the opposite of what the television says, so I bought a mask. And so, some time mid-March 2020, I was waiting in line to get groceries—in a mask—when a very inebriated gent passed by. Well, well, well, even from afar, I could smell every molecule of liquor in the air. Call me a peasant scientist but I concluded that masks were probably no good.
I am tempted to say, you won’t believe what happened next…. but of course you know what happened next because you’ve lived through that. And so,
More than three years after Covid emerged, and despite severe influenza outbreaks across the Northern Hemisphere, there’s still not definitive proof on how much – or whether – wearing masks slows the transmission of respiratory viruses. https://t.co/CkGyTlLy36
