The names of all these ‘Covid variants’ struck me as a little strange, so I started investigating them.

*Updates Below*

Let’s start at the beginning of this thought process:

If you discovered a ‘new variant’ of an existing disease, what would you name it?

Personally, I’d name it after the place where it was first discovered, or after myself, or I’d name it some strange collections of letters and numbers that passes as ‘identification’ in the strange world scientists inhibit.

So when the ‘Delta’ variant of Covid 19 first showed up, I was curious why it was called ‘Delta’.


Here’s the official story of how it got it’s name, from Wikipedia:

The Delta variant, also known as lineage B.1.617.2, is a variant of lineage B.1.617 of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. It was first detected in India in late 2020. The World Health Organization (WHO) named it the Delta variant on 31 May 2021.


And if you go HERE, you’ll find more official BS from the CDC site, on the ‘Delta variant’, including this nugget:

Fully vaccinated people with Delta variant breakthrough infections can spread the virus to others. However, vaccinated people appear to spread the virus for a shorter time.

You’ll notice there is absolutely no peer-reviewed, real science behind this ambiguous, meaningless statement.

Hey CDC, how do you quantify ‘shorter time’? What research did you do that shows that ‘vaccinated people appear to spread the virus for a shorter time’?

What does that even mean?

Let’s move on.


What I noticed amidst all the BS that passes for official guidance on Covid 19 variants is that no-one had any reason for why the Delta variant from India was called Delta.

So, I plugged in ‘Delta’ to see what associations it has outside of Covid, and HERE is what I found:

Delta waves are high amplitudeneural oscillations with a frequency between 0.5 and 4 hertz. Delta waves, like other brain waves, can be recorded with electroencephalography (EEG) and are usually associated with the deep stage 3 of NREM sleep, also known as slow-wave sleep (SWS), and aid in characterizing the depth of sleep.


All this was before I started making any of the connections between electromagnetic-conducting graphene oxide nanotech in the Covid 19 shots.

So I just kind of parked it, and forgot all about it.


The next ‘Covid 19’ variant that hit the headlines was something called the Lambda variant.

Again, that name just struck me as plain weird.

So again, I did a bit of looking around for other meanings and connections to ‘Lambda’, and this is a little what I found.

This snippet comes from an article called: Functional programming in Python:

Lambda function

Lambda is a tool in python and other programming languages for calling anonymous functions….

[A]n anonymous function call implies that you use it without declaring it anywhere.



And then I also found THIS:

Lambda is often used for linear charge density, so units could be Coulombs per meter.

Any “linear density” might be symbolized by this Greek letter: mass density (kilograms/meter) or perhaps light-poles per mile along a highway.

Choice of symbols is arbitrary, but in electromagnetic textbooks lambda is a frequent choice for linear density, lower-case sigma for surface density (e.g., Coulombs per square meter), and lower-case rho for volume density (e.g., Coulombs per cubic meter).


Interesting, isn’t it, that so far both the ‘variants’ of Covid 19 have strong links to electromagnetism, brain waves, and using computer programs to execute ‘anonymous functions’ that aren’t declared anywhere.

But surely, this is all just one big CO-IN-CID-ENCE?


A few more weeks pass, and now we’re up to yet another ‘variant’, the strangely named ‘Mu’ variant.


So this time, I really started scratching my head about the name ‘Mu’.

This comes from Wikipedia:

Mu-metal is a nickel–iron soft ferromagneticalloy with very high permeability, which is used for shielding sensitive electronic equipment against static or low-frequency magnetic fields… The name came from the Greek letter mu (μ) which represents permeability in physics and engineering formulae.


OK, so this next ‘Covid 19’ strain is being named for a magnetic metal which ‘represents permeability in physics and engineering.’

Remember, the researchers at La Quinta Columna – and elsewhere – first figured out that there was biotoxic graphene oxide nanotech in these Covid 19 shots because people were evincing weird magnetism around the injection site.

And also remember, that graphene oxide nanotech in a person amplifies the energy waves from 5G by at least 1000 times… effectively rendering that person very ‘permeable’ to ionising radiation.

Do you still believe in coincidences? Because at this point, I really don’t.

But there was more.


At the time all this ‘Mu variant’ was being trailed in the corrupt MSM propaganda as the next reason why everyone is going to need a 4th, 5th and 6th ‘booster shot’, I was reading a book called Electric Body, Electric Health.

I was up to page 66, and this is what I read:

Dr Valerie Hunt at UCLA…developed a high-frequency instrument that records the bioelectrical energy that emanates from the body’s surface….Hunt’s work proved that energy radiating from the body’s surface gives off frequencies one thousand times faster than any other known electrical activity of the body.

Hunt conducted research using an electromagnetically shielded, or mu-metal, room and found that when electromagnetism was removed from the room, people ‘went to pieces’, having emotional breakdowns for no discernable reason.

When ambient electromagnetic energy was restored to the room, participants found themselves feeling fine again.



Just as all this ‘Mu variant’ was hitting the headlines, I had one of the worst days, emotionally, that I’ve had for a very, very long time – truly, an ’emotional breakdown for no discernable reason’.

That’s why I ended up taking a break for a week.


So, what can we start to tease out from all this?

As I’ve covered on the blog elsewhere, graphene oxide nanotech is ‘tunable‘, i.e. different frequencies can be used to create different reactions – including physiological, chemical and emotional – in different people, at different times.

All these different ‘frequencies’ being tried out on different parts of the population are responsible for the so-called Covid 19 variants.

And they have been telling us that this is *the plan* for a very long time.


Take a look at THIS, snippet below:

Almost 10 years ago, DARPA admitted to starting programs that would enable them to use ‘implanted nanotechnology’ to directly treat (aka takeover) people’s brains, and that would also enable them target specific tissues and cells in the human body, and cause particular actions to occur.


Here’s a little bit more about DARPA’s N3 program goals, from HERE:

Among other brain hacking technologies in development is a human memory ‘prosthesis’.

DARPA recently reported it was on track to achieving this implantable brain chip that would facilitate the formation of new memories and retrieval of existing ones in individuals who have lost these capacities as a result of traumatic brain injury or neurological disease.

Brain chips are also being examined by DARPA-funded researchers as a way to treat PTSD by deep brain stimulation. They are looking at sending low doses of electricity deep into the brain in order to alter a person’s mood.


Meanwhile, DARPA is also seeking to advance human capabilities by speeding up skill acquisition. If this project is a success, the result will be ‘downloadable learning’ – allowing military personnel to acquire necessary skills without lengthy efforts.

And, if that wasn’t enough, a potentially-dystopian technology is being harnessed by DARPA’s NESD (Neural Engineering System Design) program to enable direct communication between the brain and computers.

The goal is for the brain computer interface to be capable of two-way communication – receiving signals as well as transmitting them back out, by recording signals from 1 million neurons.


Remember this from Rice University?



Wireless communication directly between brains is one step closer to reality thanks to $8 million in Department of Defense follow up funding for Rice University neuroengineers.

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), which funded the team’s proof-of-principle research toward a wireless brain link in 2018, has asked for a preclinical demonstration of the technology that could set the stage for  human tests as early as 2022…

MOANA, which is short for “magnetic, optical and acoustic neural access,” will use light to decode neural activity in one brain and magnetic fields to encode that activity in another brain, all in less than one-twentieth of a second….

“With the little bit of light that we are able to collect through the skull, we were able to reconstruct the activity of cells that were grown in the lab. Similarly, we showed we could stimulate lab-grown cells in a very precise way with magnetic fields and magnetic nanoparticles.”


That experiment is in full swing.

It’s called ‘Covid 19’.

And all these ‘variants’ are simply different frequencies, different electromagnetic fields, which we are being bombarded with, to affect the ‘magnetic nanoparticles’ we’re all now chock-full of, thanks to GO-containing ‘vaccines’, masks, swabs, chem trails and who knows what else.

And in turn, this is what is affecting our body and brain cells, and causing us to get sick and to have emotional breakdowns for ‘no discernable reason’.


So, keep an eye on the names of all these different ‘variants’.

They think we are all so dumb and deluded, they are literally hiding all this stuff in plain view, convinced that no-one ‘outside the circle’ will ever figure this out in a million years, chortle chortle.

And when we get to the variant named Return of the Zombie Apocalypse – run for the hills.



Me being me, I went to click on lineage B.1.617.2from that Wikipedia entry on the Delta variant.

It took me to a Wiki page  where I read this:

Lineage B.1.617 has three sublineages according to the PANGO nomenclature:

  • B.1.617.1 (Kappa variant), first detected in India in December 2020

  • B.1.617.2 (Delta variant), first detected in India in late 2020

  • B.1.617.3, first observed in January 2021


What the heck is ‘PANGO’ nomenclature?

When I clicked on it, I got to this:

The Phylogenetic Assignment of Named Global Outbreak Lineages (PANGOLIN) is a software tool developed by members of the laboratory of Andrew Rambaut, with an associated web application developed by the Centre for Genomic Pathogen Surveillance in South Cambridgeshire.

Its purpose is to implement a dynamic nomenclature (known as the PANGO nomenclature) to classify genetic lineages for SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19…

PANGOLIN was created by Áine O’Toole and the Rambaut lab and released on 5 April 2020.


Remember headlines like this, from the beginning of the ‘Covid 19 pandemic’, when everyone was frantically trying to work out ‘where did Covid 19’ come from?

What a CO-IN-CID-ENCE that one of the ‘culprits’ being fingered for Covid 19 just happened to share the name of the Phylogenetic Assignment of Named Global Outbreak Lineages (PANGOLINgenomic software, that in another huge CO-INC-ID-ENCE was ready to go just as ‘Covid 19’ took off in the world.

Colour me surprised.

But there’s more.


The PANGOLIN software is created by one Andrew Rambaut, amongst others.

When I take a look at his GitHub account – the one associated with the PANGOLIN software, this is what I find:


This is the first that I’ve heard of the Wellcome Trust funded ‘ARTIC network’.

The Wellcome Trust is a very dodgy instituation, run by spooks including Eliza Manningham Buller, former head of MI5.

This snippet from the Wikipedia page gives a rough flavor of a little bit of the problem, with the Wellcome Trust:

It has been reported that the Wellcome Trust has billions of investments on companies which contribute to the problems the philanthropy wants to solve. 

Also in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, it has been revealed that the trust has investments with pharmaceutical companies, which means it should gain financially from the pandemic.


And if you click on THIS PDF  you’ll find a copy of the patent on nothing other than an attenuated Coronavirus  – for use in ‘vaccines’ – that was taken out in 2018 by the Wellcome Trust-funded Pirbright Institute.

Here’s the abstract:

The present invention provides a live, attenuated coronavirus comprising a variant replicase gene encoding polyproteins comprising a mutation in one or more of non-structural protein(s) (nsp)-10, nsp-14, nsp-15 or nsp-16.

The coronavirus may be used as a vaccine for treating and/or preventing a disease, such as infectious bronchitis, in a subject.


Isn’t that amazing prescience, that a full year before ‘Covid 19’, the Wellcome Trust and Pirbright Institute had this ‘coronavirus vaccine’ all ready to go?

So anyway, back to the ARTIC network.

I click around a bit, and here is what comes up:

ARTIC Network provides protocol for rapid, accurate sequencing of novel coronavirus (nCoV-2019): first genomes released

This article appears on the Oxford Nanopore Tech website, which instantly gives me the creeps.

Here’s what I learn about that particular company:

Oxford Nanopore has worked to establish the concept of an ‘Internet of Living Things’, originally conceived as an ‘Internet of DNA’ by David Haussler, a bioinformatician based at UC Santa Cruz. In an article in Wired in 2015, Clive Brown, CTO of Oxford Nanopore noted that “future nanopore sensing devices linked to cloud based analyses could run anywhere on anything.”

The concept of an Internet of Living Things was referenced in a 2015 paper by Yaniv Erlich describing a future of ubiquitous genomics. Erlich noted that “multiple appliances could benefit from integration with sequencing sensors, including air conditioning or the main water supply to monitor harmful pathogens. However, of all possible options, toilets may offer the best integration point.”


I wrote about ‘The Internet of Things’ HERE, together with it’s connections to all this wifi-enabled bio-nanotech that’s been shoved into the Covid 19 shots.

Yet again, we see how everything is connected in a very small circle.



So now I just went to look up Yaniv Erlich, the guy talking above about the Internet of Living Things. What I read did not reassure me. Here’s a snippet:

Yaniv Erlich is an Israeli-American scientist. He is an Associate Professor of Computer Science at Columbia University and the Chief Science Officer of MyHeritage. Erlich’s work combines computer science and genomics.

He earned a “BSc in Brain Sciences in 2006 from Tel Aviv University and a PhD in bioinformatics in 2010 from Watson School of Biological Sciences at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory.

From 2010 to 2015, Erlich was a Fellow at the Whitehead InstituteMIT. Since 2015, he leads a lab at Columbia University in computational genomics.


Man, we are back in the dystopian nightmare again.

Cold Spring Harbor has very strong historical ties to the eugenics movement, that morphed to become the ‘Human Genome Project’:

The Eugenics Record Office (ERO), located in Cold Spring Harbor, New York, United States, was a research institute that gathered biological and social information about the American population, serving as a center for eugenics and human heredity research from 1910 to 1939.

It was established by the Carnegie Institution of Washington’s Station for Experimental Evolution, and subsequently administered by its Department of Genetics.


Oh, and the ‘Watson School of Biological Sciences’ had to be renamed because James Watson went on record with his rascist, eugenics-loving opinions.


Something tells me I’ll be coming back to this ARTIC network soon, but let me end for now with this screenshot, from the GISAID website, which is another WHO funded partner organisation in all this Covid Genome stuff.


There are currently 152 different ‘variants’ for Covid 19 listed on that website.

I tell you this so you understand that there is not going to be any end to this ‘variant’ excuse for pumping people full of booster shots, and force masking, and locking people down.

Sooner or later, however painful and uncomfortable it is, we have to face the truth down about what is really going on here.

Because the corrupt authorities are not going to ‘stop’ at the third wave, or the third booster shot.

They can keep this going indefinitely.

Until God finally has mercy on us, and stops them.



Reader H. just sent me this link and note from the Habayitah website HERE.

Dr Zelenko is talking about a new patent for a vaccine which will deliver ID number.

Please listen to his interview (see minute 13.37)


Here’s a screenshot of that patent – taken out in November 2020.


Notice how careful they are to disguise what’s happening here with ambiguous language about ‘a plurality of electronic devices comprising instructions to generate an ID.

HERE‘s what that could mean in practise:


If you want to read more about how nanoprocessors in ‘vaccines’ can enable people to connect to Bluetooth, see THIS:

Dr. Chinda Brandolino refers to the technology that makes it possible for the Bluetooth to read codes in inoculated individuals.



My husband pointed out the obvious, that these strains are named for Greek letters of the alphabet.

I know that.

But as there are currently 152 ‘variants’ in the GISAID table, above, it’s weird that you’d pick an alphabet with just 24 letters to cover that range.

Also, one of the commentators posted a list of named ‘variants’ apparently put out by the World Economic Forum and John Hopkins University, that stretch well into 2022.

I’m asking for a link to verify it, but if that’s true – it’s pretty damning evidence that all these ‘variants’ are also being totally planned in advance. Like, two and three years in advance.


You can do that sort of forward planning easily, if the ‘variants’ are actually different frequencies of experimental 5G microwaves being zapped at large segments of the population, as per the thesis we’re setting out here.

But it’s hard to imagine how you could plan ‘variants’ in advance like this, if you’re dealing with ‘unpredictable mutations of a virus’.

They are lying to us about everything.

    This was interesting. I see a little how you’re mind works. A true invesgator.
    How about this, since “There are currently 152 different ‘variants’ for Covid 19”, why don’t we start a ‘contest’ to see who could name the next ‘variant’? Is there a link to all the names? So we could choose one?
    On another thought, about that crop duster (cd) and your sudden escape escapade, I was thinking that “they” might be using the cd to TARGET an area in order to do an experiment on the residents of that area? i.e., to agitate someone in particular with an elec zap? I don’t know where R CW lives, but you live there? And you needed to get away in a hurry! Just think about it. I have not heard such a cd in my area, which is not that far from Mamila Mall. Just an idea. But I’ll try to pay more attention to motors in the sky ;–)

      I’ve also been pondering how ‘targeted’ all this stuff is. I live in a very Arab neighborhood, with low take up of the Covid shots. It could be that this neighborhood is being targeted with graphene oxide as ‘chemtrails’ to try and make up the shortfall.

      Maybe in areas with high Covid shot takeup they don’t feel they need to be putting into the air, too.

      Just some musings…

    I know what is presented on the mainstream media in particular is 100% scripted, and often even entirely staged.

    Still, I am skeptical of these videos (is there more than one?) of the fake vaccines turning people into Bluetooth devices. What are their provenance? It’s not even that I think some sort of communication, both sending and receiving, is not possible. From what I have read, I believe bidirectional comms are indeed possible. This, however, seems over the top, and tailor-made for debunking and discrediting.

    It is a problem that the people, whoever they are, constructing the narrative include false leads and misdirection to make it easier to discredit those genuinely searching for the truth.

    Does this have the ring of truth to you?

    Someone I know and trust has said there is something nefarious about 5G, and I believe him. But he also said 5G has such low range it is only really workable in very densely populated areas. Israel is pretty urbanized, but it is possible to move into areas that are unlikely to ever get it.

    • Rivka Levy
      Rivka Levy says:

      I hear you.

      Re: this particular video – honestly, it does seem a little staged.

      But the idea, the technology to actually do this has already been talked about over a decade ago, and also patented… So it’s certainly possible.

      I think this is really where people doing their own experiments really comes in. I know hardly anyone in my dalet amot who has had the shot, thank God. And I also don’t have a smartphone.

      But I’m guessing lots of people out there could do this experiment, and then we can start to see if it’s ‘already happening’, or if it’s just something they want to happen, which is also useful information.

      Re: 5G, so many people live in cities that if it ‘only’ works in cities, that’s still a huge problem.

      Also, take a look at this, about the Active Denial System also working on a very similar frequency to 5G:

      “Active Denial System uses the almost the same frequency as 5g, that is coming soon to our homes.

      The military truck that is equipped with an active denial system emits 100 kW of the radio frequency beam. It is operated by a joystick and an operator. The beam of wireless radiation is highly targeted and focused. When the operator detects the troublemaker he just blasts him with a high-frequency microwave radiation. The microwave radiation travels from the source to the individual at the speed of light. It can travel very far. In this video, the range was 3 football fields.”

      ADS is definitely a real thing… And it’s mobile and can be targeted at individuals.

      And of course, this is just the information they are actually telling us.

      I am starting to feel the same way.
      I might get slammed for sharing the following thought, but I feel like it is important to share.

      Dr. Zelenko is right now being interviewed right and left by so many alternative media outlets.
      In one of his interviews, he mentioned that he is still good friends with Rudy Giuliani. Personally, that was a red flag for me for reasons that I hope others understand without me having to explain in detail.

      Could it be that they’re just trying to cause as much controversy as possible?
      Could it be that there are also government puppets on the anti-jab side of the coin with their own agendas?

      Also personally, back to the GO theory, like Shimshon had mentioned in a previous comment about a specific video, a lot of the La Quinta Columna’s presentation and website seems edgy to me.
      I’m curious as to why the videos and information aren’t presented in English if they would like their information to get out? Someone with a PHD level of education surely should have an excellent command of English, no matter where they are located.

      • Rivka Levy
        Rivka Levy says:

        You are making some good points, and it’s very wise to proceed with our eyes open, and to consider all possibilities, moving forward.

        At this stage personally, I still feel the graphene oxide is only part of the story. The GO nanotech side of things can be stood up by so many different sources, that I personally feel quite comfortable at this stage that it has at least SOME THING to do with what is going on.

        But what surprises me is how no-one is talking about the DNA Origami, and also Charles Lieber’s ‘Syringe-Injectible Mesh Electronics’.

        From the small bit of research I’ve done here on the blog, those should be huge subjects of enquiry, and even though I’ve sent some of this info out to other researchers, no-one seems to be interested in it.

        Of course, they may just be overwhelmed with information, or maybe it’s just not the right time for them to ‘notice’ it, spiritually.

        God is ultimately in charge of everything that is happening, and God is the one who will open our eyes to what we need to see, when the time is right and when we’ve made the appropriate teshuva.

        But that’s also why I’m very happy to share dissenting opinions here on the blog, because getting to the truth involves shaking out a lot of lies. And that’s only going to happen when things can be questioned and challenged.

        So carry on asking questions, and putting your thoughts out there, because that’s the only way we’ll be able to iron out the ‘blind spots’ we all have, including me, to get to what is really going on here.

        Re: your other comment, you raised some good points, and I’m thinking about them – and I invite other readers also to think, and to share their thoughts. We don’t have to be ‘right’ about everything, just trying to do the birur, with God’s help.

          R.D. says:

          Thank you for giving me the space to share my thoughts. It’s definitely not a given these days…

      On the other side of this argument… Hitler (or at least, the people who were promoting him) wrote Mein Kampf many years before he put it into action, in WW2.

      I’ve noticed a weird thing with all this stuff, that there seems to be an unspoken spiritual rule that they have to tell us what they are doing, beforehand, in some way.

      It comes up again and again and again.

      Remember this?

      Ingersoll Lockwood, an American political writer, lawyer and novelist, combined a unique mixture of science fiction and fantasy into his novels from the late 1800s. Two of his most popular works of literature were illustrated children’s stories, focusing on a peculiar fictional character whose name rings a bell in 2017: Baron Trump….

      Lockwood’s final novel arrived in 1896, titled The Last President….

      The Last President doesn’t follow the same fictional narrative of Lockwood’s previous novels, though the links to Trump are once again abundantly clear. The president’s hometown of New York City is fearing the collapse of the republic in this book, also titled 1900, immediately following the transition of presidential power. Some Americans begin forming a resistance, protesting what was seen as a corrupt and unethical election process….



      Nothing in the world is ‘real’ at this point… and everything is a massive test of emuna and middot. So, I agree with you Glenn, that anything that pointlessly divides us, and causes us to hate others in our hearts – something that I struggle mightily with, honestly, when it comes to mask-enforcing Karens – has to be very carefully guarded against.

      And it’s a huge, huge struggle.

    Dear Rivka, R.D. is making some good points. Rivka, you are the one who have often raised the issue of controlled opposition. May be this sanitary situation is simply just a means to prevent achdut, especially among Am Israel, as achdut is ahavat Israel which is the cure of sina chinam. And we know that as long as we have not made the tikkun of sina chinam, we will not merit the third bet hamikdach.
    Other point, the Rav has repeatedly asked to stay away from smart phone and Internet stuff. One of his prayers for children is that they can stand the test of the internet which is pure touma and all of them are sunk deep inside of it (and we, the parents as well). May be the סמ’s objective is just to fool us by sending contradicting information on the internet so that we get hooked to discover one side of the truth. And this is pure waste of time as our job should get closer to HaShem and to Rabbenou and his teachings. May be this is why the geoula is delayed, because we still have not got in our minds (me included)?

    • Rivka Levy
      Rivka Levy says:

      Totally agree with you Hannah, that if we start thinking that ‘we are the only ones with the truth’ etc, then that is completely missing the point.

      And also agree that achdut is the way forward.

      And also agree that the internet is chock full of tumah!

      At the same time…. there is a job of birur to be done here, to separate the truth out from the lies, so that it can return to God, and we can get to the geula, the redemption of the whole world.

      We know the world of lies has to fall, and when we take out that spark of holy ‘truth’ that is sustaining it, bit by painful bit, that’s when it crumples.

      My husband is currently on a news fast and is feeling much, much happier and less stressed as a result.

      Each time I try to do that, and just turn my back on this stuff and walk away, God drags me back to it. That’s my tafkid, I guess, or my problem. It certainly doesn’t have to be anyone else’s!

      God forbid, I don’t want to attack anyone for having a different point of view. In the Gemara, they had no end of strong disagreements, but still respected each other tremendously, as holy human beings.

      It’s not easy to do that, in today’s polarised world. But I think, I hope, that if we approach the task of birur with the knowledge that we really know nothing, and that even the bit we think we know could be upended and turned around again in a second, when something ‘new’ appears to qualify it, that gives us a lot more humility, and stops us from attacking other people who have different opinions.

      But at least for me, I don’t think that God wants me to totally disengage from this process. I’ve tried that a few times, even smashed my computer up, but it never seems to last for long.

        Dear Rivka, you have summed it up. Humility is the ikar, in all what we do. Thank you for your hard work on doing all the birur to expose the lies.

        We live in chutz l’aretz, where we feel Hashem put us. Here, perspectives are not so black and white and people not very gevurahdik like how I experienced back when I lived in Eretz Yisroel. The mentality in chu”l is, that the internet can be used for good or bad. We use internet to learn, earn a parnossa and keep in contact with friends and family. My personal opinion is that the healthiest approach is to focus on letting in as much light as possible, so there won’t a place for the darkness to ‘hide.’ But I will wrap that up by saying that the information which you, Rivka, put online greatly helps me and so many others! Thank you for what you do.

        On another note, somebody brought it to my attention that קוביד is the inverse of the word דיבוק. I’ve only hard that from one person, so I thought it worth mentioning.
