  1. John McAdams and Judyth Baker

    George: you are missing a lot. Temperature: it will slowly rise in a thermos, on a bus, in warm weather conditions. As a result, the cells will basically boil. You can have live cells in culture flasks for few days but the flasks will be kept at room temperature, some 22 degrees Celsius. pH: depends on the metabolism of cells. The waste products of metabolism is CO2 which inevitably creates H2CO3 by interacting with water, and this is an acid. So, you need to exchange the medium regularly else the pH will be continuously dropping (becoming more acidic) until the cell metabolism stops because the cell would not work at low pH. Mechanical insults: you carry the cells in a medium in a thermos in a standard bag, on a bus. This means that the content of the thermos will be shaking continuously causing many cell to damage their membranes as they hit the wall of the thermos. The cells die and spill their content into the medium which will increase the osmolality, and they will start losing water, shrink and die. To protect the cells in a culture flask, it would have to have some kind of gel lining around the inner surface of the flask. Which Judyth's thermos did not have. Osmolality: Lee received something like glucose, some sort of nutrient to add it to the medium. Judyth had it for a fish bowl. The problem is that you do not have fish in a thermos and the cells will not eat big chunks of Lee's crackers which he drops into the thermos. That cracker or whatever it was would dissolve in the medium and since the cracker contains solid organic and inorganic particles, it will increase the total concentration of particles in the medium relative to water. As a result, the water from the inside of cells will start to be sucked off out of the cells, the cells will shrink, their membranes would rupture, and the cell would die. Time: the cells fate would need to be sustained for the entire trip to Mexico City, then to the contact person, then to Havana, then pretreat Castro with X-rays, small or large, repeated over many days. The thermos would contain a stinking soup at this stage as it all will take maybe 3 weeks? Havana side: who from several Castro's trusted and checked doctors would kill his/her patient? They all had to follow the Hippocratic Oath to which every doctor has to swear. Besides, how to convince Castro to ruin completely his immune system with many repeated X rays and then let himself inject a chicken broth - this is how Judyth described it when it was fresh. George, I suggest you contact a medical doctor in your environment and ask him or her if it is possible to kill someone by injecting mice cancer cells into a human with an idea to cause a fast growing cancer. The person may die but not because of cancer but because of sepsis caused by the chicken broth being injected into the bloodstream. Although I gladly offer my limited knowledge to describe the problems, you do not believe me anyway. This is why I would like you to deal with these problems on your own.
  2. John McAdams and Judyth Baker

    Ray: I understand that the cells in the case you describe have been maintained in a lab environment in which pH, temperature, osmolality etc. are continuously controlled. This is nothing like a thermos style which Mrs. Baker tried to sell.
  3. John McAdams and Judyth Baker

    George: sure not, however, you wish to believe that this is possible, and I will not interfere.
  4. John McAdams and Judyth Baker

    It is all right, George. You brought the nitrogen idea.
  5. John McAdams and Judyth Baker

    George: Liquid nitrogen would freeze and damage the live cells. 100 rem is an unusually strong dose of radiation, not a low level. However, nitrogen was not the medium used by Lee while allegedly transporting the bioweapon. This is what Judyth has to say: "In a few minutes, Clay Shaw arrived with a zippered bag like the blue one Lee owned. It held two thermoses: one contained the deadly cancer cells. The other contained a sterile medium for replenishing the liquid in other thermos to keep cells alive. There were also packets resembling packets of sugar to make more sterile medium, if necessary. There were also crackers and bananas in the bag, to make it look like a punch pack that could pass a simple border inspection. If inspected visually, the cancer cells would look like a chicken broth". This would be a comedy in blue if it were not sad. "
  6. John McAdams and Judyth Baker

    I am reposting a part of my June 17, 2017 message as somehow the most crucial aspect where Mrs. Baker's story fails has not been taken on board. There cannot be a cancer bioweapon which would use live cancer cells taken from an animal model and injected into a human. Cancer can be facilitated or provoked by injecting a radioactive substance, however, this is not the same as an infection caused cancer. And Mrs. Baker was not preparing plutonium or other radioactive capsules for Castro. It is a physiological and medical nonsense to think of cancer as an infectious disease. If we care for someone with cancer, we are not at risk of being infected by patient's cancer. Similarly, it is also a nonsense to transport any live cells in a jar just like that, in some medium, for days. After excluding bioweapon as an utter hoax, the whole story becomes a list of encounters which may or may not happen. "However, there are parts of the story which have never been analysed properly and which cast doubt on the essence of the story. Lee and Judy were supposed to work on a bioweapon which Lee would transport to Mexico where he would meet a contact, a young Cuban doctor, who would in turn arrange injection of living cancer cells into Castro's body. To make sure that the cancer cells would kill Castro, Castro would have to go for X ray(s) to suppress his own immunity. Well, this is a complete hoax. Living cells cannot be transported in a jar in a shopping bag for days. Living cells need either to be frozen or kept in a controlled solution in which ion concentrations and temperature would be continuously monitored - this requires a lab. We cannot be injected with cancer cell and die because those cells would be immediately recognised as coming from a foreign body (there is a marker called major histocompatibilty complex on every cell which tells whether the cell is own or foreign) and would be destroyed by recipient's own immune system. One can suppress the immune system by X-rays, however, each dose of such immunosuppressive X-ray would be about 10 times stronger than a standard diagnostic X-ray dose of radiation, and it would have to be repeated for quite many days. Would you believe that Castro's doctors would consent to it? Would Castro undergo such treatment without asking? At the end of the X-ray "therapy", Castro would be good to die without Judyth's injection anyway. Leukemia patients undergoing immunosuppression to receive bone marrow grafts are kept in ultra-protected environment because even such a minor infection as having a caries in one tooth would kill the patient."
  7. Mrs. Stanton, Mrs. Sanders, where are you?

    Bart: I may not be able to change your mind on your string of No's . However, I will do all I can to convince you that the light object next to Mr. Lovelady's face was actually a partial face of a person standing behind him. Therefore, I will reconstruct Altgens6 scene as a priority. It will take me about a week or two. Eventually, you will be the judge. I do not know the outcome of that analysis yet, however, I am sure that in the process we will learn a lot about what was going on in the doorway during the critical period. And that is another purpose of this threat.
  8. Mrs. Stanton, Mrs. Sanders, where are you?

    Hello Gary and Tommy: thanks for your expert suggestions. I have tried Google Maps to measure the distance from the western corner of the Depository doorway to the nearest of four trees mentioned in Gary's message. This distance turned to be 14.8 meters or 49 feet. However, Google Maps also allow measuring the distance from the doorway via a selected route the ladies may have taken. If I guessed the ladies' locations in Z-film correctly, their total distance from the doorway was only 42.5 meters or 140 feet. This is not a long distance at all. I guess 20 seconds is more than enough for an untrained person to walk fast over a 43-meter distance.
  9. Mrs. Stanton, Mrs. Sanders, where are you?

    Tommy, would it be possible to maybe measure the distance from the spot the two ladies occupied during the shooting (in Z film) and the Depository doorway? We can then estimate their time possibilities they had to reach the doorway better. Your impression that the two ladies had their arms intertwined was not silly at all, I fell for it as well. Only when I failed to fit the white lady in this way did I realise that she was a freelancer. There was an alley in the crowd of people in the western half of the doorway whichis visualized in the top view of the doorway in one of my earlier posts. The lady in white had a clear path if she wanted to enter the building.
  10. Mrs. Stanton, Mrs. Sanders, where are you?

    Chris: some doorway occupants moved and some not during the period between Wiegman (Altgens6) and Darnell. Mrs. Reese, a short lady, stepped few steps up which would give a better chance to view what is going on up there over the Tripple Underpass. Carl Jones left the doorway entirely. Mr. Frazier moved about 2 feet forward. Prayer Man turned around towards his left compared to Wiegman. However, Mrs. Ruth Dean is exactly where she was in Wiegman film. So is Mr. Williams, the man shielding his eyes with one arm. And the same holds for the man in a black suit (Bill Shelley) who stands in the center-east part of the top landing in Altgens6, Wiegman and Darnell. Billy Lovelady moved towards the western wall and maybe a step or two down. Mrs. Stanton, if my analysis is correct, moved slightly back into the shadow of the top landing. So, yes, people moved during the 30 seconds after the last shot but the doorway scene still shows the people who were there during the shooting at their locations or at locations not far from their locations in Wiegman. This what I believe my reconstruction shows.
  11. Mrs. Stanton, Mrs. Sanders, where are you?

    A very instructive clip, Chris. The lady in white keeps moving the whole time while ascending the steps. The lady in dark cloth appeared to arrive sooner than the lady in white. The point which I find important in the context of the reconstruction of Darnell doorway is that the scene corresponds to some 30 seconds of time that elapsed since the last shot rang out. Therefore, the people on steps would still be at identical or similar locations as evidenced in Wiegman film and Altgens6.
  12. Mrs. Stanton, Mrs. Sanders, where are you?

    I did some research into the background of both ladies using publicly available data. Mrs. Stanton appeared not to be married. I was able to find an association with a person which was her sister, however, she also passed away. Thus, it is almost impossible to get any data on her appearance or a picture now. However, Mrs. Sanders was married and had children, and her son may live in Dallas. There is still a chance to at least ask about Mrs. Sanders and her appearance (height, body build), or even obtain her photograph. This would help to solve the problem of identities of the two ladies standing on the top landing on that fateful Friday afternoon.
  13. Mrs. Stanton, Mrs. Sanders, where are you?

    Here is the doorway scene in Darnell film with provisional name labels. At least as I understand them currently. Happy to change if we can gather convincing evidence.
  14. Mrs. Stanton, Mrs. Sanders, where are you?

    Hello Bart: it has been only about 30-40 seconds after the last shot when the doorway scene seen in Darnell was filmed. Almost all the players are still in the doorway. If anything like that (an assassination) happens, people are in the state of shock and, unless feeling a threat to their lives, they just stay frozen. Under the shelter of the doorway, the people there stared at the direction of the Tripple Underpass and did not need to throw themselves on the ground or flee. Some doorway occupants, sooner or later, moved to a better spot or even left the doorway but it was maybe still after a while. Carl Jones stood in the lower west corner and I cannot see him in the scene, so he may have left which was easy for him as there was no one in front of him obstructing his moves. Billy Lovelady moved a step or two down and to the west. He was constantly on the move, so he went closer to the spot which allowed him to view the events on Grassy Knoll/Tripple Underpass. His space was filled with Buell Frazier who moved a step or two forwards. Maddie Reese appeared to step up few steps. Mr. Williams still stays where he was in Altgens6, he only switched arms - he was shielding off his eyes with his right arm in Altgens6 and with his left arm in Darnell. His shirt is a long-sleeved shirt, unlike Mr. Molina's shirt which was a short-sleeved one. Mr. Molina stepped down one step in Darnell which allowed to see the short lady in the east part of the doorway. This long comment wants to say that there was no reason for Mr. Shelley to run away from the doorway just yet. He is still there almost at the spot he had occupied in Wiegman and Altgens6. It is is a man showing the same body height in Altgens6, Wiegman and Darnell, and he wore a suit. There was only one person in the doorway in the suit - this one depicted in my model is him. He stood close to the edge of the top landing, and therefore only the lower part of his face is illuminated. This is also seen in Altgens6. I am aware that my reconstructions may cause ripples in some theories, however, this is the strength (and the risk as well) of photographic data - they always beat the self-reports which may be tainted by memory lapses, emotions etc. The timing reports given by witnesses during the shooting is sometimes difficult to accept. Mr. Molina is in my view the man visoring with both arms connected in front of his head, the one with a white short-sleeved shirt. As far as other ladies are concerned, I did not find it necessary to add still more people. I have no idea about their clothes and believe that they actually did not stand on steps. I cannot see how adding other people who were close to the doorway would help the case. Of course, it would be nice to model the whole Dealey Plaza! Your comment on Altgens6 is interesting. The point is that the light object is just too large to be a continuation of Billy Lovelady's face, and too large to be just a photographic artifact. If you would think it was an artifact, could you find a similar artifact in Altgens6 which would be at the level of human heads? However, I understand fully that resolving geometrically the Altgens6 scene is very difficult. It is the last task in the sequence of my project: the next will be Wiegman, and then only Altgens6. Altgens6 was shot with a telephoto lens from quite a long distance. The doorway is a small section in that photograph, however, we view it enlarged as if it was shot from just a few feet distance. The geometry we expect to see in a standard photograph does not apply in Altgens6, and things which appear impossible can actually be possible. That said, I understand fully your comment about the geometric impossibility of an extra person to be between Billy Lovelady and Bill Shelley.
  15. Mrs. Stanton, Mrs. Sanders, where are you?

    Hello Thomas: I also thought for a while that the lady in white had her arm wrapped around the lady in dark. However, then I viewed several previous and subsequent frames and it turned out that the lady in white was in constant motion, she did not stop or slow down. Instead, the lady in dark does not seem to be moving up the steps. Still, I modeled in one of the working versions of the scene exactly the situation with the arms of these two ladies inter-twined. The problem was that the head of the lady in white, in that case, was too close to the head of the other lady and the scene did not hold when overlayed. I can have a look if I maintained the version with the two ladies close to each other with their arms intertwined, however, I usually overwrite imperfect versions because of the disk space. Thanks for looking through my posts and for your comment.
