Follow The Science. Follow The Math. Follow – the INFLATION!

According to the CDC and WHO, the United States has fully vaccinated 46% of the population as of August 8th.   So why is the White House declaring that the 70% target has been reached?   In addition, the total number of doses administered is stated to be 106 per 100 people.   If in fact we had reached 70% fully vaccinated and 59% administered one shot (per the White House numbers), that would equate to 232,397,000 fully vaccinated with 2 shots and 194,866,000 given one shot – or 130% of the total US population.   Sounds like Election Night…  Right?

Is this the new Common Core Math?

The Uk numbers are equally as bewildering:   47,058,639 people have been given one dose.   39,551,518 have been given 2 doses. 86,611,177 doses have been administered… But the math doesn’t come close!   39,511,518×2 = 79,023,036+47,058,639 = 126,081,675 doses…   Who does their Math?

But Math would not seem to be a strong point in anything ‘science’.   The UK has stated that in order to reach climate neutral, every household will have to take a significant financial hit in the short term, meaning 10-20 years.  For many – that short-term would be their remaining life.

The first effort will be to install all new heating systems to replace the gas boilers. To that effort, the UK government has pledged 600,000 new energy conserving heat systems will be installed every year through 2028.   Assuming a start date of January 2022, that would mean 4,200,000 new systems total.   But the funding only supports 12,500 per year, resulting in a shortage of 4,112,500… a 98% shortfall.

But it sounds good when blustered from a pulpit!

Psychiatry is another absurdity in the realm of reality.   UK psychiatrists will open their first psychedelic therapy clinic this autumn using magic mushrooms to treat mental illness!   Given this sort of treatment worked so well in the 1950’s wherein LSD was the nome-de-pleu, I imagine the suicide rates will explode! But given suicide has always been the cure for mental health issues – we should not be surprised.   In the US that would represent 27% of the total population.

And then there is this UK nugget: inflation is being driven higher due to increased spending… Ah.   Unemployment has apparently peaked in the UK, but labor shortages are also a contributory cause to inflation.   Wait, far fewer are employed but they are all spending like crazy…  That’s logical.  I have a novel solution, require the unemployed to work…   Inflation & unemployment – SOLVED!

The Bank of England states that living standards will be severely impacted for the next two years… or so… due to the higher inflation rate of 4%…  The Jimmy Carter inflation rate was 15% or higher…   I wonder if that is the sustainable goal?

The Federal Reserve calculates that healthcare inflation is well under 2% per year and has been since 1975.   Since 2007, PWC’s Health Research Institute graphs the inflation of healthcare from a high of 11.9% inflation rate in 2007 to a projected 6.5% in 2022.   The US Bureau of Labor Statistics states the 2021 inflation rate for healthcare is .94%.     None of these are remotely similar.   Follow The Science.

And then there is energy – our price at the pump for petrol.   According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, as of June 30th 2021, gas prices surged 45%.   According to New England Oil, gas at the pump now costs $2.59.   In Colorado, gas prices have risen more than 78%. Cherry-Picking!   California gas prices have risen from $2.6 to $4.25, an increase of 64%.   Exactly how does this factor a 4% inflation rate?   Other commodities would have to have declined by 60%???   It’s not meat, not housing, not food, not appliances, not furniture, not not.   Follow The Math.

But it is – Science.

Deutsche Bank is blaming the Federal Reserve for manipulating inflation with the intent of creating a recession and a chain of financial distress. The Federal Reserve response is ‘posh, nonsense, you don’t have a clue what you are talking about’,  inflation is a temporary condition of internal unknown, undefined ‘special factors’ which will wane in the short term. Apparently, the Feds state they will not tighten monetary controls until it sees ‘substantial further progress’ toward it’s Inclusive Goals.  

I wasn’t aware that the Federal Reserve was responsible for inclusivity… But it does sound oddly compatible with the UN and WEF as though they now envision themselves as The Big Three!   The Global Rulers.

How exciting!   A plethora of socialists, communists, marxists, and greenie wieners ruling the globe from their thrones of gold…. Or bitcoin? Whatever the case may be.   Que Sera… look no further than what Pelosi is buying and selling…  Just Give Me Some Moneyyyy –

MODERNA: An Afeyan, Gates, Fauci HIT SQUAD of Investors!

Which came first, the chicken or the egg?

The vaccine was created before the virus was released, according to Dr. David Martin (Doctorate of Business). To support this, he researched patents submitted over the last 20 years and found that the technology for the vaccine was developed before the virus existed. And the virus isn’t a virus at all but a manufactured biological grade weapon designed to cause rapid lung death.  In addition, he claims that Fauci was working on an HIV vaccine induced lung bioweapon which triggered the idea for a Pandemic.

For what purpose?   1.   For money.   2.   Fauci wanted a legacy – and his career was a joke, an utter failure wherein he had not achieved – anything. Instead, he was an office hack looking for a means to make himself appear godlike.   He wanted to go down in history as a hero who conquered a deadly pandemic.

And this was capitalized on by those with ulterior motives.

Enter Peter Daszak front and center in the maelstrom of what is being labeled the CoVid Pandemic.   Until 2020, he was relatively unknown, his bio was first created April 2020.   A zoologist, his focus had been on wildlife and livestock. His career was in nature conservation. In that vein, Daszak’s bio identifies the US Department of Interior as a former committee position.   Their job is management of federal lands. He claims an ‘affiliation’ with the Institute of Ecology – again land conservation.

And then quite suddenly, he is named president of The Consortium for Conservation of Medicine.   This organization become EcoHealth Alliance in 2010 at which point it was a subcontractor of NIH with funding from Fauci directed at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

Like Fauci, Daszak’s career was a dead-end, that is, until COVid.

IN a video presentation, David Martin provides a letter written by Daszak in which he unequivacably states that he, Daszak, helped orchestrate a pandemic utilizing the media as a promotional tool, with a focus on Moderna as the principle vaccine manufacturer, in order to designate massive profits for unnamed “investors”.  I

n other words, it was a manufactured project for fame and fortune.

So who are these ‘Investors’? David Martin did not know – so, I will provide that answer:

Aside from the usual suspects, there are some persuasive ones on the Board of Moderna.

Moderna has both a Scientific Advisory Board as well as a regular Board. The common affiliations of both Boards include David Koch a number of Big Pharma’s and Flagship Pioneer, a venture capital firm.   Other affiliations include Johns Hopkins, Harvard and MIT.  All of which have been given prominent roles in the Pandemic.

Flagship currently holds 20.5 million shares of Moderna worth $6.6 billion after selling off $3.4 billion according to their SEC Filing 13-F. The CEO of Flagship is the CEO and Founder of Moderna, Noubar Afeyan.   A man of many faces.   Flagship has most recently created 2 subsidiaries; Flagship Biosciences, and Flagship Labs, both overseen by Paul Biondi. Other subsidiaries include, Seres Therapeutics, as well as 38 additional companies related to genomics and agriculture.  

A MASSIVE INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX!

These therapeutic companies are fast-tracking their medicines through FDA and EU registrations based on the utilization of “AI hypotheses”, ie, algorithms.   This was the same computer generated technology that was used to push the mRNA vaccines for CoVid so quickly.

Based on Insider filings, it would appear that Directors of Moderna were given shares valued as roughly $12. Today, the value has ratcheted to $321 per share.   The market cap is $129 billion on income of $1.9 billion…   Seem a bit amiss? It should.

In an interview on MSN, Afeyan explains how Moderna was able to put out a vaccine so quickly:  

Chinese scientists put the genetic sequence of the novel coronavirus online on Jan. 11. Over the next two days, the NIH and Moderna used it to plot out a vaccine. Moderna delivered the first doses of its Covid-19 vaccine to the NIH for testing on Feb. 24, 2020, and the first Moderna shot went into a volunteer’s arm in Seattle on March 16, 2020.”

NOTE THE DATES:

When China uploaded the genomics of the virus on January 11th, 2020, it was determined there was NO human-to-human spread and only 5 genomes had been analyzed. At that point only 1 person had died.   It was only then, January 12th, that WHO was informed.   At this point, it was considered a shrug and scientists had not yet discovered a way to even test for the gene sequenced ‘virus’.  YAWN

And yet, Afeyan was already in discussions with NIH, aka Fauci, ‘plotting’ (his word) a vaccine which was delivered one month later.  Four months later, on May 14th, 2020, Fauci announced that Moderna’s vaccine is a game changer and is on track to be available within 12-18 months. At that point Moderna was in phase I.

However, the vaccine was given authorization just 7 months later…

BACKTRACK:   In 2016, Noubar Afeyan and Bill Gates announced a partnership for the development of mRNA therapeutics to prevent HIV.   While none of Moderna’s vaccines have been approved since they began the mRNA development in 2016, somehow, this vacant history was ignored.   With Gates influence, 65% of funding is from the Federal Government thru HHS.   The CoVid vaccine is the first and only product developed by Moderna. And NIH, Fauci, Gates and Afeyan were all investor profiteers via a stock that was previously relatively worthless.

The head of HHS biomedical Authority during the 2016 thru 2020 (when Gates first partnered with Moderna) was Rick Bright.   He was demoted by President Trump, resigned and then was reinstated by Biden to head the Coronvirus hit squad in 2021.

Between 2008 and 2010, Bright worked for the Gates Foundation after which he was transferred to HHS, and subsequently reassigned to Fauci’s NIH. When his position was challenged by President Trump, Bright filed a claim against Trump stating science trumped Trump when it came to the hydroxychloroquine debate. Bright was represented by attorney Debra Katz whose infamous client list includes Christine Blakely Ford, and other sexual harassment claims.

At this point, the EU has reported 13,867 people have died from the CoVid vaccine, and 1,354,336 people have had significant adverse reactions.   The US has reported roughly 13,000 deaths and 460,000 adverse reactions.   And yet, Biden has stated that FDA ‘final approval’ is imminent.   Thus ignoring the scientific data. Once approved, the lawsuits gain traction as the manufacturers immunity is only available under the Pandemic Authorization Act.

GATES – FAUCI Collaboration: 2 Goals – Depopulation and Money

YOUTH MARKET.   Target market.   Global. Bill Gates.   Two Companies working diligently to amass a collective mind:   RED Organization and ONE Organization.   Backed by a melee of one world globalists luring the next generation like a predator offering candy…

Co-Founders:   Bobby Shriver, Bono, and Jamie Drummond.   Their mission?   To deify blacks and vilify whites while advocating for African ‘economic migrants’ to take over the aging white culture in Europe.

Sponsors and Board Members:   Open Society, Bloomberg, Gates, Facebook, Buffett, Firefly, JP Morgan, Skoll Foundation, Beedie, Amazon, Apple, Starbucks, Cargill, Rockefeller, Heartline, Google, HBO, Tik Tok, Starz, Sotheby’s, etc… etc…etc… The kings of global disruption and chaos.   How Sweet It Is!

And they have joined forces to manipulate the youths of today and tomorrow encouraging them to rise and fight.  But they aren’t paid, they must volunteer for these multi-million dollar organizations whose finances are leveraged on hypocrisy.

Who are they fighting?   You and I – old white folk who remember what Freedom looked like once upon a time.   Board members?   Two blacks, 1 Asian, 1 Indian, the remaining are white.

Why do white people hate white people? Why do they want Europe to become an extension of Africa?

Like every other white based NGO, they claim they want to have zero poverty and 100% equality. The want to eradicate AIDs, save lives and educate children!   All of these initiatives must be achieved by 2030.   The Net Zero Day.

Yet their IRS Forms 990 tell a very different tale.

With $35.5 million in gross receipts for 2019, total grants were $9.6 million or roughly 27%.   Nice…   But upon further detail, all the grants were to affiliated One companies.   A Shell Game.   And their actual verbiage is highlighted throughout with;   ‘gender summit, gender equality, gender violence, gender laws, gender awareness, and of course – buy Bill Gates vaccines’.

The tribe is once again shown to be actively pursuing vaccinations under the guise of gender recognition.   For two reasons;   Money and population annihilation.   No money was spent to relieve poverty, or buoy an economy, or eradicate ANY disease.   It was simply another self serving salary blitz while attracting youth across the globe to work as volunteer ‘Ambassadors’.   Much like little Greta.   That blitz totaled more than $17.5 million in salaries & costs although buried in the return is an additional $2.5 million in ‘other’  that they failed to define.   In addition there is an interesting expense line item of $1.2 million in fundraising expenses with zero corresponding revenue.   I suppose the IRS was on vacation.

Shriver’s bio states as of 2012:  Bobby Shriver, co-founder of (RED) and ONE’s predecessor organization DATA, has spent the past ten years working to help eliminate the financial and health emergencies threatening the people of Africa.

So with 19 years working diligently to eliminate financial and health emergencies threatening African people – nothing has changed. Odd.

Getting absolute statistics on AIDs or Malaria is virtually impossible. First Africa has no system of count, therefore the estimated numbers are derived as algorithms by WHO.   Secondly, HIV has been morphed into the algorithm of AIDS despite the fact that they are stupendously non-related.

It was in fact Anthony Fauci who declared in 1983 that HIV was the predecessor to AIDS and could be contracted through routine interaction as opposed to sex.   The media went bonkers. Two months later Fauci declared that, “It is absolutely preposterous to suggest that AIDS can be contracted through normal social contact like being in the same room with someone or sitting on a bus with them. The poor gays have received a very raw deal on this.”  Pretending that this declaration did not come from his own mouth.

Fauci’s flip-flopping fatalities in making scientific blubbers has been his MO from the very beginning of his career – in Science.  Much like – today.

But even more frightening is the Fauci declarative that HIV causes AIDS which is utterly without science, epidemiology or an evidence base. In fact, in 2002 this was addressed by Mohammad Ali al Biyati, President of Toxi Health International in California.   He literally ripped Fauci’s vaccine induced hype as fabricated, mumbo-jumbo. Instead, he revealed that AIDS was linked to the use of various drugs including cortitoids, immunosuppressant used to suppress respiratory illness, gastrointestinal illness, malnutrition and other infections. His claim states, “AIDS” in the U.S. and Europe has coincided with the approval of glucocorticoid aerosoll use in 1976, the introduction of crack cocaine, the use of heroin by inhalation, and the use of alkyl nitrites by homosexuals to enhance sexual activities.

As expected, the media was forthwith with hit pieces, quack innuendo, and gnashing of teeth claiming that Biyati was an AIDS denier.   In essence attempting to completely discredit his points and instead give credit to Fauci’s unfounded declaration.

Simultaneously, Bill Gates became involved in the fight against HIV/AIDS in Africa during the 1990’s. The Fauci – Gates collaboration was a partnership made in Hell.   And a lot of people made a lot of money creating a false narrative while hyping drugs that caused death.

Today, Gates has stated that the fight against CoVid will mirror what he did for Africa’s fight against HIV/AIDS.   Which is to say – death.    And yet, once again we find the NGO’s One and RED backed by Gates and Soros are ‘fighting’ the war against two diseases with absolutely no progress at all – flanked by 1-2 million deaths per year for AIDS. Supposedly.

In 2016, a team of researchers decided that they should conduct ‘empirical estimates’ of HIV/AIDS deaths. Given the information is actually unavailable they demanded that doctors in Africa consider all deaths as AIDS and note that on death certificates in order to provide ‘reliable statistics’.

Sound familiar?

Poverty has not been alleviated, malaria is prominent and Gates polio vaccine has created a new strain of polio in Africa’s population.   All while giving immune suppressant drugs to persons who are sick.   Side effect reactions include:

As your immune system gets stronger, it can begin to fight off infections you already had, possibly causing disease symptoms to come back.  ALL of the drugs contain side effects causing the same symptoms being ‘relieved’: degenerative body tissue, loss of weight, malaise, fatigue, headache, nausea, joint pain, abdominal pain, cough, diarrhea, labored breathing, hypersensitivity, etc… etc… etc…

THAT would be the Gates/Fauci version of Progress.   I.E., if you weren’t sick before, you are now – and you will die.

Media Hypocrisy – Science as Theory – Medicine as a Philosophy…

It is so much FUN when hypocrisy is caught red-handed.   In the universe of diversity and support of all things minority/black, the Liberal Media are quick to lash out at the nasty conservatives for promoting a nearly all white old male agenda within their ranks of business.   And yet, the most prominent within the MSM tend to be the least diverse.   Case in Point:

CNN:   Their executive team in 2020 was made up of 15 members. Nary a one was black, Asian, Hispanic or Indian.   Pretty young women represented 40% of the Team.   Today, they retired a few and added a few for a total of 17 members, including a black female diversity officer, a black male VP of Standards who came from NYT and Ford Foundation, and an ‘interim’ black woman as head of Human resources, firing the white woman.   This brought the sum total of female representation to 40% while adding the newly created ‘Diversity Department’ and replacing a number of old white men with younger white men.

New York Times:   Their Executive team totals just nine members; two white women, five white men, one black woman newly acquired January 2021, and one black man. The women represent 30% and the two black persons represent 22%.

Washington Post:   The Executive Team is composed of 13 individuals;   including 11 men, one of whom is Indian the remainder are white.  And the alternate would include their 2 token women.   No blacks or Hispanics at all.   Odd…

 US NEWS & World Report:   just loves to label everything conservative as racist and misogynist.   So lets see who represents their Team of 28.   Woman = 12 including one Indian, Men = 16 including 3 Indians.   But wait!   What happened to all the blacks and Hispanics and Asians???   Tch, tch.  Apparently they don’t exist!

Politico:   The nonpartisan, non-non, left leaning liberal magazine has a Leadership Team of 35 individuals.   They would be comprised of 3 black women (8.5%), one of whom is in charge of the newly created ‘Diversity Department’, 1 Chinese woman, 1 Japanese woman, and 1 Indian male.  Outside of that – everyone is white.  Gender diversity would include 18 men and 17 women. An A+ in gender, and an F in Black and Hispanic diversity.

Former Director-General and CEO of the BBC and New York Times was required to step down amidst a lawsuit alleging racism, sexism, ageism, and misogyny.     The resignation at BBC came amidst scandals involving pedophile Jimmy Savile, whereupon Thompson transferred to the NYT.   TA-DA!   The suit was brought against these media outlets by 2 black women citing Mr. Thompson, chief revenue officer and Meredith Kopit Levien, CEO. Mr. Thompson resigned and Mz Levien remains CEO.

The problem with “Wokeness” is that it is a fairly new term having arisen with the advent of Black Lives Matter in 2014. Seven years later, it would seem that MSM is still SNORE Asleep!   The Washington Post which has no blacks or Hispanics at all and a female representation of 15% on its executive team, declared it was in solidarity with the Russian rock group Pussy Riot  in 2012 as – woken to female oppression.    Really?   How are they WOKEN?

Talking the talk – is a rotted feces.

Apparently ‘wokism’ is considered a summation of the leftist political ideology which centers on;   social justice and critical race theory.

Two “Cultural Scientists’, Rosalind Gill whose degree is in social psychology, and Akane Kanai who teaches media, film and journalism, are considered warriors who are  concerned about ‘woke capitalism’.   Because of course capitalists cannot by definition be ‘Woke’!   Silly me.   Only leftist Liberals are allowed to be woke. But then I wasn’t aware that psychology and media had become ‘scientific’ endeavors.   But it would explain how the Media and Hollywood feel quite confident in their conveyance of all things Science.

In antiquity, science was equated to an individual of upper class who was well educated and was investigating nature. These same scientists were considered philosophers.   Thinkers, astronomers, philosophers.

Then with the decline of the Roman Empire, there was a corresponding decline of intellectuals.   It wasn’t until the Middle Ages when , Aristotle from 500 BC, was resurrected as a source of knowledge.

Little else evolved until the 1800’s, 2300 years after the science philosophers, that ‘natural’ was replaced with such terms as biologist, physicist and scientist elevating their theories to mini-gods. At which point sociology, economics and geography became known as ‘Science’.   And later, social science included; law, business, public policy, and even marketing!

So, technically speaking when our esteemed media, neighbor, or governor declares that we must ‘follow the science’ they could actually be referring to “follow the marketing advertisers”, or “follow the lawyers”, or even “follow the psychologists”!!

Because they are all considered Scientists now.  Everybody is a Scientist.

Of course the definition becomes even more hilarious as Formal Science includes: system theory, and theoretical computer science.  

BY definition, Theory is:   a supposition, an opinion, a hypothesis, a conjecture, or simply, a belief.   Nowhere is there the term – FACT.

Synonyms of Medicine include:   healing, cure, practice and science.   Medicine is NOT healing or cure, and the practice is science – or theory – or opinion.

It appears I have digressed a bit from my original topic of hypocrisy.   But the frame is still consistent.   Hypocrisy is being deceitful.

And the deceit of “Follow The Science” would be that Science is anything more than a belief or opinion.   And the media is everything – deceitful.  

FOLLOW THE SCIENCE: of Critical Thinking

The very Cabal oriented Economist Weekly Edition , has announced that humans who are sub-categories of Neanderthals via ‘mating’ are more prone to CoVid19.   While providing absolutely no basis for this determination, the statement further determines that humans today are of two or more separate sub-species with different ancestral heritage and genomes. Those whose DNA contains Neanderthal sequence are more subject to lupus, Crohn, diabetes, hairiness, and – CoVid.

By default, those whose genomes have no link to Neanderthal are disease superior.

While there have been in entirety – two studies that make this conclusion – the studies are conducted utilizing a very small and distorted statistical value structure:   85 African Americans vs 90 Europeans.   The fact that Neanderthals became extinct according to ‘Science’ 40,000 years ago, based on pseudo-non-relevant data, this variant is the conclusion as to why Africans are more susceptible to diseases.   This would also indicate that Africans are the populace inheriting the Neanderthal genome.

Challenging this absurd data could be considered diabolical at best and could render a person in social media jail.   But given that there has been no, as in zero, sequencing of the CoVid 19 strain, making this scientific conclusion is an assumption at best, and a ridiculous fabrication in reality.

Neanderthals were depicted as ‘stupid, primitive and brutish’.   And their demise is attributed to Climate Change – although there is absolutely no proof of any of these conclusions. But hey “FOLLOW THE SCIENCE”.

When reading the discussion of ancient historical accounts and evolutions, it is interesting to note, that literally everything stated – is a guess.

“All humans lived as hunter-gatherers in band societies, often in caves”.   Hundreds of thousands of years ago.  Really, really really?   Did you talk with them?  Did you ask them?   DO you have all human skeletal remains?   Intact?   

We accept this statement of nothingness, because it emanates from science. And over the last 200 years science, which was a simplistic philosophy of thought, suddenly was elevated to FACT.

Follow The Science…

Forever Science declared that King Tut’s closest aide was a man.   Why?   Because.   Yet upon recent examination, the hip structure revealed that the King’s aide and closest confidante was actually a woman.   King Tut is said to have ruled approximately 1330 BC.   But even that date is not grounded fact, it is ‘an estimate’.  

If “Science” can’t provide factual data from 3300 years ago, how are we to sheepily accept their pronouncements of 40,000 years ago – 130,000 years – 400,000 years etc…  are anything less than conjecture?

Critical thinking would scream – NO.

Dr. Fauci proclaims his pronouncements as ‘Fact”.   Based on what studies?   Because none have been produced.

Today, the weather advisory declared a winter storm watch with upwards of 6”   – it never happened.

In fact, we barely got a dusting of accumulation.   These are the climatologists who declare what happened 4 million years ago and declare what will be 1000 years into the future – in terms of Climate Change.   Yet they cannot make a factual pronouncement within a 24 hour span of climating.

Follow The Science.

Today Biden and Fauci basically declared that state governments opening their economy are ‘Neanderthals’.   A species Brutish, Stupid, and Short that originated in Africa and is riddled with disease.

Where is the outrage? The Racism? How dare they!

The Nobel Prize winning bio Chemist who developed the PCR test, Kary Mullis, declared Fauci was an egocentric, greedy, idiot whose entire career was spent jumping aboard the band-wagon of others accomplishments.   A self promoter. A Marketeer. A short, brutish sort of Neanderthal bent on capitalizing on the IQ and intelligentsia of the true elite.   Much like Bill Gates.

Mullis also declared that the PCR test was NOT relevant to detecting a virus at all.

What Kary Mullis exposed within NIH and Fauci – is the illusion that science portrays too often in the name of accreditation.   Instead of searching for truth and evidence, science has become more of a “Me-Too” movement of recognition vs exploration into fact.   They clamor aboard the train hoping their pitiable research that is framed in a preconceived result will somehow make them famous.

This certainly does NOT mean there aren’t some exceptional Scientists doing incredible work!  It simply means that the label has lost credibility – much like journalists, politicians, entertainers, etc…

Weeding through the mélange means finding the ones who are not so vocally bent on fame.   Kary Mullis was most definitely a very interesting man and scientist who died – coincidentally – just mere months before CoVid and the PCR test was pronounced defacto by – Fauci.

Follow The Science of Critical Thinking.
