Once again a special thanks to Dr Biotech regarding Pigs and possible CWD and ASF issues. buywell apologizes for not establishing this issue which after further investigation he believes is now a REAL problem already in the USA and Canada and other countries which have CWD in their cervid populations,such as Finland , Norway and Sweden. I did some quick research on what I posted above because it alarmed me that I had not read anything about Hunters in the USA or Canada being warned about eating wild boar because of CWD in deer,elk and moose in the same state or vicinity where cervids were being tested positive for CWD. It seems with reference to my previous post that Pigs are indeed susceptible to CWD. The tests on crossbred pigs IMO : DO INDICATE THAT WILD BOAR COULD ACQUIRE CWD FROM EATING CWD INFECTED DEER CARCASS'S Experimental Transmission of the Chronic Wasting Disease Agent to Swine after Oral or Intracranial Inoculation hTtps://jvi.asm.org/content/91/19/e00926-17 ''In the case of feral pigs, exposure to the agent of CWD through scavenging of CWD-affected cervid carcasses or through consumption of prion-contaminated plants or soil could allow feral pigs to serve as a reservoir of CWD infectivity. The range and numbers of feral pigs are predicted to continue to increase because of the ability of pigs to adapt to many climates, reproduce year-round, and survive on a varied diet. The range of CWD-affected cervids also continues to spread, increasing the likelihood of overlap of ranges of feral pigs and CWD-affected environments.'' buywell: This is IMO now a whole new ballgame for the USA as this link and clinical report does not seem to have been picked up by the mainstream media and hence public , and worse still the Hunting Community who are probably for the most part not eating Venison as much as they were , but are eating Wild Boar without a care in the world. Even just 1 pig out of the 50 or thereabouts tested acquired CWD orally , then in a wild boar population of circa 6M , this has the potential to infect circa 2% of them or 120,000 pigs. Hence my previous conclusions in the post above 1a,1b and 2 become IMO a very real possibility some might say reading this clinical article .... a likely outcome. dyor

African Swine Fever Update ---- thanks to some research provided by Dr Biotech Looks like Idaho will become the 27th USA state to be affected by CWD (prion disease) in Deer. Followed by Washington state before this christmas. That will make 28 states affected by CWD well over 50% of the entire country buywell predicted on the other thread that another 2 states in the USA would be affected by CWD by xmas ---- it is happening hTtps://www.spokesman.com/stories/2019/aug/01/with-five-cases-of-cwd-confirmed-just-miles-from-i/ The reason buywell is keeping you guys posted on this rampant spread of prion disease in the USA in the white tailed and other deer populations , plus Elk and Moose. Is because it will only take just ..... ONE ..... animal with a certain genetic mutation to develop a variant form of CWD , vCWD which will capable of making the jump into humans. This is what happened in Mad Cow (BSE) a prion disease in cattle in the 90's, and it is still happening today BSE is still occurring in various parts of the world. From a conversation with a couple of other posters on the other thread we have a terrible potential outcome : One that I should have thought of last year --- I apologize There are currently more than 5 million wild hogs in the United States, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. By all accounts, the animals are quite intelligent.9 Apr 2013 Wild pigs breed ... a lot ... like pigs in fact , so IMO that 2013 number of 5M is today more like 6M. Wild pigs MUST be consuming dead CWD infected deer carcass's as I key , because they are omnivores (eat just about anything). Thus there are two terrible scenarios that might possibly play out. 1a) A wild boar with a certain genetic mutation eats CWD infected deer meat and develops a form of wild boar CWD. The boar then passes on this disease to other boars like deer have infected each other, by saliva, urine , and fecal matter. Hence a USA hunter shooting wild boar has another type of animal to possibly acquire vCWD from. 1b) Such a wild boar that was infected also pass this disease to a pig farm whilst mating with a domestic sow. It happens , this is how African Swine Fever has spread in many cases, via the wild boar population transmitting the infection over the distances they roam and interacting with domestic pigs where fences have been breached (love finds a way) . Thus this adds or compounds the number of pigs that could acquire pig CWD, ie wild boar AND pig farms in the USA. 2) Now the real even more dangerous possibility , as if 1a) and 1b) were not bad enough. African Swine Fever (ASF) is in ALL provinces of China and they are thought by Rabobank who looked into the issue , to have to kill 50% of their pig population , which would be 200 Million pigs. To try to stem the disease, no cure 95% fatal . hTtps://www.hoosieragtoday.com/rabobank-african-swine-fever-halve-china-hog-herd/ ASF can spread from country to country by a pig consuming infected pork from another animal from another country eg an infected ham sandwich ... I kid you not. Or by animal feed hTtps://newfoodeconomy.org/veterinarians-african-swine-fever-transmitted-animal-feed/ ASF has spread from China into lots of other Asian countries who are also now killing millions of their own pigs. ASF has also spread to the EU recently. ASF is very likely to arrive in America soon hTtps://www.ft.com/content/78ae0f40-6ff7-11e9-bf5c-6eeb837566c5 If it does then we can add ASF into the mix with CWD in 1a) and 1b) A vCWD/ASF combination would IMO be possible

In 2011, the World Health Organization (WHO) weighed in, classifying RF Radiation as a Group 2B agent, which is defined as “Possibly carcinogenic to humans.” This looked at 1G 2G and 3G 4G is the fourth generation of broadband cellular network technology, succeeding 3G. 4G versions and frequencies were ratified in spring 2011. RadiationHealthRisks.com observes that: “1G, 2G, 3G and 4G use between 1 to 5 gigahertz frequency". "5G uses between 24 to 90 gigahertz frequency,” And then asserts that “Within the RF Radiation portion of the electromagnetic spectrum, the higher the frequency, the more dangerous it is to living organisms.” So 5G is 20 Times higher in frequency than the frequencies tested and investigated by the World Health Organization when they said : In 2011, the World Health Organization (WHO) weighed in, classifying RF Radiation as a Group 2B agent, which is defined as “Possibly carcinogenic to humans.”

These things take time to show themselves You probably have a few years yet. In the case of my workmate , having used his for about 1 hr a day in the 80's He was diagnosed 15 years later with a brain tumour and had it surgically removed. The tumour that is He lived but his personality changed and he later divorced his wife and spent lots of time over in Thailand after that, not sure of his current status. Regarding African Swine Fever and Mad Cow (BSE) I pondered this combination of these two diseases some time back. Such a variant disease which would have the potential to possibly transmit prion disease , vCJD to humans from eating pork could be a Global Pandemic event. And it could in fact happen if BSE contaminated MBM meat and bone meal was fed to enough pigs --- very scary indeed , and a reason why these NOT MEAT but vege equivalents are rocketing on stock markets as the global vegan population increases at a clip. I still think African Swine Fever will be on the front pages /headlines of papers in the UK before Christmas. I am eating a lot more fish these days

I use mine a bit as I am quite popular. I guess you never use yours. So has there been an increase in heart tumours since 2billion people started using mobiles? No. Why not? Because they are safe. Those rats have a huge dose and even then the evidence is unclear. And safe on mice too. But you aren’t clever enough to understand so I won’t try and explain.

A toxicology report released in 2018 by the US Department of Health, and pointed to by those expressing safety concerns, found that male rats exposed to high doses of radio frequency radiation developed a type of cancerous tumour in the heart. buywell - this was 2G and 3G Dr Frank De Vocht, who helps advise the government on mobile phone safety says "although some of the research suggests a statistical possibility of increased cancer risks for heavy users, the evidence to date for a causal relation is not sufficiently convincing to suggest the need for precautionary action". However, there is a group of scientists and doctors who have written to the EU calling for the rollout of 5G to be halted. hTtps://ntp.niehs.nih.gov/results/areas/cellphones/index.html The NTP studies found that high exposure to RFR used by cell phones was associated with: Clear evidence of tumors in the hearts of male rats. The tumors were malignant schwannomas. Some evidence of tumors in the brains of male rats. The tumors were malignant gliomas. Some evidence of tumors in the adrenal glands of male rats. The tumors were benign, malignant, or complex combined pheochromocytoma. Having had a work colleague develop a brain tumour on the side of his head where he used a mobile old fashioned 5W brick type phone back in the 80's for approx 1 hr a day on overhead maintenance work I have seen what over use next to your skull can do first hand. 5G frequencies are in the microwave band of frequencies The higher they go the worse things get. Over use is the main problem, I take it you have yours glued to your head Dr B.

Buywell believes 5G causes cancer. He is gullible. Hope he hasn’t got WiFi as his tin hat won’t save him. If I was conducting a trial for the dangers of BSE (and had no morals) I’d dose a large amount of people with contaminated beef and observe the consequences. Our farmers did this for us in ‘86 and it showed us the peak incidence of cjd was about 14 years after dosage. It peaked at 29 (approx 1 per million) Terrible for those that had it, but not an epidemic. Negligible cases since then. Same re mobiles. About 1bn have used them and have we seen significant increase in cancers? No. Buywell likes to point at websites by conspiracy theorists pretending they know what they are doing. Probably has his own. buywell2 - 26 Jul 2019 - 14:45:32 - 36530 of 36733 THE VODAFONE THREAD - VOD .............. 5G A WHOLE NEW CAN OF WORMS ............... It does not or will not surprise me to see VOD spin off a new Tower business. Because 5G is a very different animal to what has gone before. A much higher frequency in the RF Band of frequencies , far higher than that of 2G,3G and 4G One that will need more towers and more transmitters than ever before and one that will come with UNKNOWN risks for humans. Brain tumours , cancers and skin cancer are a real possibility with 5G buywell thinks the risk is so bad that many companies might separate the parent company from a spin off so as to try to avoid contagion in the event of cases of human cancers being caused by 5G RF radiation at close proximity to transmitting towers or base stations. dyor

Excellent results as expected whilst I was away on hols, and particularly the comments re the encouraging performance so far this year. Interesting to see post-results Ken paying almost 55p to top up his stake, and also the CFO buying another £21k's worth. Happy to continue holding long-term as I have since 8.5p-9p. The share price will fluctuate up and down, but I have confidence in management and their strategy.

Which makes buywell3 comment read not too bad about a merger However he was low on a combined profit number for next year Such a combined profit would IMO be over 20M and that is a number that ABC could sure use on there next set of results

David Cicurel of JDG was asked directly at the last Mello conference in May about whether SDI would be attractive to them. He said he liked SDI (to the extent where he bought shares in them a number of yrs ago & then sold too early) but he felt their valuation would be a little too lively for JDG now. He was looking for better value, smaller companies and was prepared to be patient for them to become available.

I have just updated the SDI pages of my website to include recent preliminary results. Also included are forecasts updated by Sharepad. If anyone has access to finnCap perhaps they would check the various forecasts, particularly eps against the levels shown on the bar charts. To access the charts, click on the sheet tabs at the bottom of the screen. I think SDI do themselves a disservice by not converting their adjusted profit into adjusted eps (a la JDG). On the basis of quoted forecasts, which I have little doubt do make the conversion, P/Es of 14.1 and 12.7 do not look expensive to me. Http://www.david-wilmshurst.co.uk/sdi/sdi_data.htm

In a recession most companies will tank so acquisition's will be cheaper, clearly benefiting SDI?

Buywell , I am one of those who appreciates your comments , together with the time and effort which you devote to them , even if a lot of it is rather above my head . Unlike far too many comments on share chat sites , your posts are always intelligent and designed to share your knowledge . You have just referred to our comparator company , Judges Scientific , and I enquired here on 18th July here whether anyone might be able to make any comment comparing the two companies . Might you be able to enlighten us ? I note that , whilst Judges are now about £ 35.00 , three years ago they were £ 13.87 , and ten years ago they were £ 0.97 !!!
