    I did a search for the Defendants name assuming the case had been discussed here, but nothing came up. "In her appeal, Vertetis argued that Superior Court Judge Stephen Taylor was mistaken when telling jurors that she had a duty to retreat if she was in danger and that this could derail her self-defense claim. In fact, her attorney argued that she had no obligation to retreat under the “castle” doctrine, which says that deadly force is justified when defending yourself in your own home. The appellate court agreed with that point. “The (jury) charge not only omitted the ‘castle’ exception but expressly told the jurors — in no uncertain terms — that self-defense is not available to defendant if she could have safely retreated or was the initial aggressor. That mistake easily could have permeated the jury’s consideration of self-defense, not only with respect to the murder count but also the lesser-included homicide offenses," the appeals court wrote in its decision released Wednesday. The appeals court vacated the murder conviction and ordered a new trial." https://www.nj.com/morris/2020/03/teacher-sentenced-to-30-years-for-killing-boyfriend-a-retired-cop-wins-new-trial.html

    Well, I am calling it now, it's all over but the scumminess of the Democrats by 15 April. Everyone back to work and school, toilet paper on sale, pent up demand released and bars/restaurants/hotels/airlines recovering. Won't stop them from asking for a gov't bailout (and maybe getting one). Libs will blame Trump for the CV panic ending TOO SOON. Memorial Day will be the biggest most festive and drunken one in years. These are my predictions and I am ALMOST ALWAYS RIGHT!

    I'd just tell all the gangbangers that the beds are reserved for corona patients. If you want to play gangbanger games, you are on your own. Best case, violence stops. Alternate best case is the gangs declare war and a ton of them bleed out in the street.

    I was unfortunately within 6 feet of a coworker when he let loose an uncovered cough. His test results came back positive, so now I'm quarantined for 2 weeks. My wife is hanging onto her sanity trying to work from home and attend to our 18 month old and 5 yr old. She won't let me anywhere near the kids so I'm hoping she has a greater appreciation for how I contribute after this is over.

    The way I am reading it, that was the issue. In the Judge's instructions to the Jury he said she had a duty to retreat, which is not correct. 2C:3-4 Use of force in self-protection. (i)The actor is not obliged to retreat from his dwelling, unless he was the initial aggressor; and https://law.justia.com/codes/new-jersey/2013/title-2c/section-2c-3-4/ I believe there needs to be consequences against the Judge in the original case.

    Freeholders' pro-gun resolution reflects their understanding of history | Letter Letter to the editor Published 5:30 a.m. ET March 18, 2020 | Updated 10:22 a.m. ET March 18, 2020 Even as crime in the city goes down, the West Side of Asbury Park struggles with the heartbreak of gun violence. Asbury Park Press In passing a resolution declaring Monmouth County a "Second Amendment Lawful Gun Owner County.” what the freeholders object to are socialists trying undermine our freedoms and our way of life in America. Every “common-sense” gun law passed only affects legal gun owners. These laws do nothing to stop violence and criminals from committing crimes with guns. These socialists are blaming the law-abiding gun owners just to get votes and get elected. Maybe the freeholders know their history and have seen what socialism is capable of doing. Those who don’t know history are bound to repeat it. Gun rights: Monmouth, Ocean freeholders back Second Amendment resolutions Hitler’s political party forced Jews to register their firearms. They then confiscated them, leaving them defenseless Maybe that’s what the freeholders object to. Jim MacKenzie Millstone Jim Mackenzie, I hope you are on this forum!

    The instructor is full of it. If it takes 1000 rounds to break in a gun, there's something wrong with it. Period. Now to trust it as reliable, that's a different matter. IMO ~500 rounds will be enough that anything defective or with metalurgical issues that aren't going to take thousands of rounds to show up will show up. The p320 x5 legion I'd just take it apart, clean and lube per factory instructions. I'd take the ammo you want to use with it and shoot a box or two to see if you get any malfunctions. If you get failure to return to battery fully, check you aren't making contact with the slide catch and if you aren't, swap to the heavier of the two included springs that came with the gun. It ships pretty tight from the factory and may need the extra oomph until it is broken in a bit. Most mass produced guns today will either run out of the box or have issues pretty rapidly. The only real exception to that that I'm familiar with are crappy extractors in modern 1911s. Which is why many big manufacturers went with a more moder spring loaded style extractor rather than the traditional tensioned design. For example Springfield uses a hardened part that is not proper spring steel and is machined in a way to be put under tension when inserted, but it loses some spring aroudn ~2000 rounds, and wills tart having extraction problems with less than full power, full weight loads.

    I think its just the way he is trying to describe it. Comparing the effects of say Malaria vs CoVid19. The drug disrupts the ability of cells to digest certain materials, interfering with environmental conditions. In one case you have a direct effect, such as malaria. The drug also accumulates in the protozoa cells themselves, interfering with the pathogen directly. With CoVid 19, it sounds like if im gathering this info correctly the effects are secondary. Cells loose the ability to process the carbohydrate that is attached to cell surface receptors of host target cells. This mean after a few days healthy cells and new cells will loose the tag the virus needs to enter. The drug doesn't disrupt the virus itself, it denies it new host cells to infect.

    Sorry with my background that Video was just way to "simple" and made no sense to me.. I look at how the drug actually works: Pharmacodynamics[edit] Antimalarials are lipophilic weak bases and easily pass plasma membranes. The free base form accumulates in lysosomes (acidic cytoplasmic vesicles) and is then protonated,[21] resulting in concentrations within lysosomes up to 1000 times higher than in culture media. This increases the pH of the lysosome from 4 to 6.[22] Alteration in pH causes inhibition of lysosomal acidic proteases causing a diminished proteolysis effect.[23] Higher pH within lysosomes causes decreased intracellular processing, glycosylation and secretion of proteins with many immunologic and nonimmunologic consequences. So it's a localized pH change to cellular lysosomes, which makes MUCH more sense to me now.. This is incredibly promising!!! And THANKS for the info!

    Here is a very interesting coincidence. Anti-Malaria drugs seem to be preventing Coronavirus. Add in the other news about a "cure" using Malaria drugs and there may be something here. ---------- https://docs.google.com/document/d/12YDytbAsZaruGlhFO7eTTgxSH_BuxJtwFmbhqpkPPSk/mobilebasic Potential Link between Anti Malaria Prophylaxis and the Prevention of COVID-19 Infection Irene Guerrini1 2 and Modupe Oshadiya =2 1South London and Maudsley NHS Trust, London, UK and 2Kings College, London, UK. Address correspondence to Irene Guerrini - E-mail: [email protected] We suggest a potential link between anti-malaria prophylaxis and the prevention of the novel COVID-19 infection, supported by a known pharmacological mechanism. We looked at the worldwide distribution of malaria and of the COVID-19 infection. Maps below (Fig. 1) offer the tantalising suggestion of a geographical separation, with countries affected by malaria mostly being clear of COVID-19 (blue=death rate of more than 0.1 malaria deaths per million inhabitants), and vice-versa countries that have suffered COVID-19 mostly being also where malaria is not active (orange=death rate of more than 0.1 COVID-19 deaths per million inhabitants). Figure 1 - Blue/Yellow countries where respectively Malaria (top) and COVID-19 (bottom) have caused more than 0.1 deaths per million inhabitants (sources: Ourworldindata.org (Malaria) and Worldofmeters.info (COVID-19), 14 March 2020) Assuming that malaria prophylaxis be active in the countries affected by it (i.e. with a larger death rate), this would show that it inversely correlates with the number of COVID 19 deaths. In other words, there is a clear basis for our group to hypothesise a potential link between anti malaria prophylaxis and the prevention of the novel coronavirus infection. We propose the following underlying reason: chloroquine and its analogues are an effective preventive treatment for malaria, and it is widely used for prophylactic purposes mainly in the sub-Saharan zones. As Vincent and co-workers (2005) indicated, chloroquine seems to have a strong antiviral effect on SARS-CoV in an in vitro primate cells study. Several trials conducted in China on the Covid-19 have also showed that chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine improved the symptomatology and the outcome of the infection (Todaro & Rigano, 2020); Touret & De Lamballerie, 2020; Yao X et al. 2020; Wang M et al. 2020). Wang and co-workers (2020) suggest chloroquine “should be assessed in human patients suffering from the novel coronavirus disease”. Vincent and co-workers (2005) postulated that chloroquine interferes with terminal glycosylation of the angiotensin-converting enzyme 2, the cellular receptor of the SARS-CoV, and suggested the potential use of chloroquine as a prophylactic and therapeutic pharmacological intervention in humans. Todaro & Rigano (2020) also write that “In the case of chloroquine treatment prior to infection, the impairment of terminal glycosylation of ACE2 may result in reduced binding affinities between ACE2 and SARS-CoV spike protein and negatively influence the initiation of SARS-CoV infection”. The above is compatible with a geographical distribution with a pattern similar to what shown in Figure 1: areas with anti-malarial prophylaxis would be naturally protected We would like to encourage the scientific community to further investigate the use of chloroquine-based medications as a preventative intervention to halt the spread of the COVID-19 infection, and the possibility of massive prevention/early intervention campaign with wide distribution of chloroquine to those at risk of infection, or already infected. This analysis has several biases which might justify the regional differences, data reporting systems, biological and environmental factors. We would like to thank Maurizio Morabito of Omnologos Ltd for helping with the data visualisation. REFERENCES Wang, M., Cao, R., Zhang, L. et al.

    I've been hearing whispers about a "cure" for this thing for a couple days now and I didn't follow up. So the French did a study with control. Peer reviewed as well. Using Hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin as standard doses. It cleared the virus in 6 days. Gone. Zero viral load. He explains why it works, it changes the acidity of the cells hosting the virus and probably shut down the ability to replicate. I suspect the conference being held this morning will be about this. Watch the market soar if that's the case.

    I heard that earlier today. Hannity was saying on his radio program that someone was going provide more information about it tomorrow. But there is another drug also showing some amount of effectiveness? Maybe an antiviral. Hopefully they’ll be some good news on that front.

    IMHO: If the seller got his price and is not closely connected to the buyer, buyer pays seller and seller leaves, leaving the balance of the transaction to the buyer and the FFL. Given the current backup, it could take days to complete. For buyer, it's just like buying it from the FFL except you already own it (ala an inbound internet transfer), he just can't take possession. If the seller and buyer are closely connected, or the seller is giving the buyer a real bargain and doesn't want to necessarily screw anyone, seller and buyer wait until NICS is approved before payment is made. Of course, that means that buyer must pay the FFL the NICS fee (and probably his transfer fee for doing the paperwork) and possession of the firearm is never relinquished by the seller. FFL would examine the firearm to verify model and serial for the 4473, but he never takes it in, therefore, if the NICS is denied, the gun remains with the seller without any further hassle for him.

    Ha ! Yeah I got it wrong - at this time - we need to put aside the NJGF partisan bullcrap and find a way to support one another, just like everyone else here in this nation and world. I am quite sure Lincoln will forgive me - In my opinion, it will not cease, until a crisis shall have been reached, and passed. "A house divided against itself cannot stand." Let's stop already - who wants to be smartest, who wants to win the debate, who wants to lean fully left, who wants to lean fully right, who believes nothing is going on, who believes something is going on - etc. The time is NOW to be a supportive and unifying voice here to our community - if it does not - and we go into a further isolation, and this infighting and bickering continue, here - it will be a small microcosm of the larger society and possibly the fall of the Republic. As such @AVB-AMG I really don't see eye to eye on many of your posts - LOL - as I am sure you mine - however, in this time - I would shake your hand - but you know virii and stuff - Be safe and fair thee well - Additionally, as this is a community - if it becomes a toxic wasteland of innuendo, trite conversation, doom and gloom - in lieu of embracing and betting on America and it's people - who needs that negativity in their lives, especially now of all times? Is it going to be hard - are people going to get hurt, both physically, emotionally and financially -yes, so sadly yes. But I *am* going to bet on America, and I *am* going to bet on it's people - that is how I am going to live my days going forward... All the while saying a prayer for our sorry asses !

    I just want to be sure that I know where you are coming from - as you have 14 posts..... I have a baseline now and can put things in context. I disagree with your assessment on legal immigration. I find that some immigrants are more pro-american than the actual americans that live here. Case in point I know someone who is Croatian and she lived through the mess of the 80's there - she is more pro democracy pro Republic Pro Conservatism than as I said many natural born Americans. She sates that she knows what it is like to live under dictatorships and communism and that the current crop of americans have no clue what they are getting into So legal immigration - that espouse American values - no problem with me - remember and celebrate where you came from but be American first......... "When [Benjamin] Franklin drew the lightning from the clouds, he little dreamed that in the evolution of science his discovery would illuminate the torch of Liberty for France and America. The rays from this beacon, lighting this gateway to the continent, will welcome the poor and the persecuted with the hope and promise of homes and citizenship. It will teach them that there is room and brotherhood for all who will support our institutions and aid in our development; but that those who come to disturb our peace and dethrone our laws are aliens and enemies forever."
