Washington Post says Israeli intelligence agencies told King Abdullah II they weren’t involved in alleged plot against him, appeared to suggest the PM was to blame
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was involved in efforts by the United States and Saudi Arabia to pressure Jordan’s King Abdullah II as part of the Trump administration’s promotion of its Middle East peace plan, the Washington Post reported Saturday.

- A researcher and python hunter by the name of ‘The Wildman’ have joined forces to explore what they believe could be used to fight the coronavirus – and it is hiding in the Florida Everglades.

Squalene is a naturally occurring oil-like substance found in nature and is commercially extracted from fish oil, particularly from shark liver.
However, extracting it from sharks has become a controversial topic among animal activists, but the Burmese python is wreaking havoc on the Everglades and wildlife officials are looking to remove the creature.
Crum also notes that one 10-foot snake has enough to make about 3,500 vaccine doses.
Although the World Health Organization deems squalene safe for vaccines, it is not on the Food and Drug Administration’s list of ingredients in the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines.
