T cells are a type of white blood cell that are specialized in recognizing infected cells and are an essential part of the immune system. About 1 to 5 percent of T cells in the blood of healthy people are so-called MAIT cells (mucosal-associated invariant T cells), which are primarily important for controlling bacteria but can also be recruited by the immune system to fight certain viruses. Infection In this study, the researchers wanted to find out what role MAIT cells play in the pathogenesis of the COVID-19 disease. They examined the presence and characterization of MAIT cells in blood samples from 24 patients with moderate to severe COVID-19 disease at Karolinska University Hospital and compared them with blood samples from 14 healthy controls and 45 individuals who had recovered from COVID-19. Four patients died in hospital. The results show that the number of MAIT cells in the blood decreases rapidly in patients with moderate or severe COVID-19, and the remaining cells in the circulation are highly activated, suggesting that they are involved in the immune response against SARS-CoV-2. “The findings of our study show that MAIT cells are highly involved in the immune response against Covid-19,” says Johan Sandberg. “A possible explanation is that the characteristics of MAIT cells predispose them to early involvement in both systemic immune responses and local immune responses in the airways in which they are recruited from the blood by inflammatory signals. There, they are likely to contribute to a rapid, innate immune response against the virus. In some people with COVID-19, activation of MAIT cells is high and is associated with severe disease.”

(3) The more I see of our new health minister, Yuli Edelstein, the more he strikes me as a “polittruck”. He is more responsible than anyone else politically for the mess we are in right now. Had he not fought tooth and nail to keep “track and trace” under the auspices of a clearly overwhelmed health system, and had it been transferred to the IDF months earlier over Edelstein’s veto, it seems we could have done much more harm in our current outbreak. previously

Even Prime Minister Netanyahu admitted, uncharacteristically, of failing to handle the pandemic by “reopening too soon, too fast.” I honestly think that one person who could do with some extra “Al Chet” reciting this Kippur is Health Minister Yuli Edelstein, for establishing “track and trace” efforts due to the wars between the health establishment (he must claim health professionals) and those who (former Defense Minister (beginning with Naftali Bennett) who first correctly identified this as a logistical and scalability challenge and advocated from the beginning for its transfer to the IDF.

Some of you may be old enough to remember the singing nun from Belgium on The Ed Sullivan Show, performing the surprise hit “Dominique” that topped the US charts for four weeks and won a Grammy Award. Her real name was Jean Dekkers: she went by the stage name Sor Sauer (literally, Sister Smile).
She was born to a master confectionery baker and his strict wife in the village of Laken, where the Royal Palace is located. (According to some sources, her parents were strict Catholics, but according to an article in French

C paper La Croix, she grew up with a secular humanist background and came to religion herself.)
Always a tomboy, she was very active in the Belgian version of the Girl-Scouts. Her parents wanted her to marry and take over the family business, but she decided the life wasn’t for her and literally moved into a nunnery.
The new novice loved it, especially her singing — and since a portable instrument was one of the few worldly possessions she was allowed to keep, she got an acoustic guitar and learned to play well enough on her own. Her superiors encouraged her to actually perform and somehow her tape was played to an A & R person at the Philips record label (a subsidiary of the electronics giant).
They immediately heard this catchy song, which most non-Catholics (myself included: it’s not my musical cup of tea) don’t realize that it’s actually a pen by the eponymous founder of the Dominican Order (who lives in her monastery). possession).

Surprise: the song in French will definitely climb to the top of the charts in the USA. An American tour and a successful first album followed.[French Wikipedia claims that the “Dominique-nick-nick” chorus was dangerous, because “nicker” in modern French means “screen*w” — but I believe this is normal. The colloquialism became French only after she died out of Arabic by North African immigrants.]
However, during Vatican II and beyond, she became disillusioned with the monastic life and religious establishment of her church, and sought a new path that she felt would be more relevant to today’s world. Her lyrics also took on a more provocative character, praising contraception and calling her “conservatives” (conservative c**ts/*ssholes). To make a long story short, it was inevitable that she would face her orders and eventually she was willingly liked.
And now her troubles began in earnest — not with her former religious superiors, but with the Belgian tax authorities. They came after her to pay back taxes on “her” royalties – of which she had never seen a dime. After all, she had taken a vow of poverty, so 5% or so was kept by her monastery, with Phillips keeping the rest for himself. Her plea fell on deaf ears with the tax authorities, and Phillips argued that he had fulfilled his contractual obligations.
Her abbot bought or donated her an apartment in Vavre, in exchange for signing a document renouncing all further claims and agreeing not to publicly denounce the order. She moved in with a former classmate, Annie Pecher, a therapist who worked with autistic children. (It is quite clear that their relationship was not one of ordinary friendship but one

He started a school for autistic children called Clair-Joy (“Clear Joy”), but fell further into debt with the Belgian tax authorities never having any hope of repaying them. (I’m not a Belgian tax lawyer, but I believe this would be an easy winnable case.)
All her attempts to reboot her singing career, to generate income, failed – the last attempt was in collaboration with Belgian electronic music pioneer and producer Marc Moulin (of “Telex” fame).
The couple sank into depression due to alcohol and prescription drugs. After his school went bankrupt, he committed suicide. They left detailed instructions about who was to give each item in the apartment and how they were to be buried together.
Now get this: on the same day, her royalty statement was issued by SABAM (the Belgian equivalent of ASCAP) (it must have arrived in the mail the next day or so): it was about ten times the amount owed to the taxpayer.
