Re: Myanmar Criminal Military Coup D'etat

Getting older and seeing lots of protests go nowhere (e.g. has anything happened in Belarus?), I have become quite pessimistic about the ability of protest to affect change. Hopefully this time is different. The protesters have been really organized and creative (e.g. using fake car breakdowns to st...

Re: EU vaccine hoarding

Apparently the US is sitting on tens of millions of doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine with more in the pipeline...with EUA at best weeks away (AstraZeneca haven't even applied yet):

Is it more likely to be used in blue-collar or white-collar work during working hours? Or is it roughly equal?
Again, taking a pretty broad interpretation of 'used' - white collar
Got it!

OK, is it an amphibian?

Is it an invertebrate?

I think that should cover all animals

Re: EU vaccine hoarding

Nope, because my arguments tend to make sense And yet, you claim the EU 'stole' something which they entirely didn't do. The US could ban the export of weapons to Iran, they wouldn't be stealing Iranian weapons. You are either a liar or your arguments are based on a lack of sensible understanding o...

Re: Global vaccine hoarding

https://www.sciencealert.com/vaccine-hoarding-could-make-the-pandemic-drag-on-for-many-more-years Interesting look at this problem from a global perspective I believe the concerns about "vaccine nationalism" are way overblown. The worst casualties of COVID have been Europe and the US...so it would ...

Re: EU vaccine hoarding

Really? ABC, who can be relied upon for sober coverage, reported that article as follows: "News of the blockage of a shipment of 250,000 COVID-19 vaccines from Europe to Australia has caused concern and outrage" If Australia had been unwise enough to be heavily reliant on the EU I dare say the reac...

Re: EU vaccine hoarding

Yawn...the story has already been out a day in Australia. At least from what I read from comments, most people aren't terribly concerned because Europe needs it more right now. Again, apart from the odd outbreak, Australia has no COVID at the moment. The local rag suggests the government isn't too c...

Re: EU vaccine hoarding

:lol: More hyperventilation. The EU should be applauded for being willing to export vaccine so early in the rollout especially with so many still people dying there. The US isn't going to export anything until its done. And China can export because it has little local spread (at least that is the of...

Re: Myanmar Criminal Military Coup D'etat

Violence is escalating there. After the violence got far too close, my Mother in law finally decided she needed to get the s*** out of dodge. COVID had already made it near impossible to travel to/from Myanmar, the coup just made it at order of magnitude worse. All sort of problems trying to get a t...

Re: EU vaccine hoarding

Interesting that in the UK that the preference may go in the other direction (Astrazeneca over Pfizer). I saw something in a BBC article which suggested that too: https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/europe/covid-vaccines-choice-pfizer-astrazeneca/2021/02/20/0beaceb0-5f2f-11eb-a177-7765f29a9524_stor...

Re: EU vaccine hoarding

Though even if you don't make the choice explicit, people will find out what vaccines are administered where...and will have a preference.
