RE: 2019–20 CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC POSTINGS

For some real professional background on just how bad an idea it is not getting the 2nd booster from Moderna or Pfizer, have a look at this advisement; an interview done yesterday on Youtube featuring renowned virologist Shane Crotty, of the La Jolla Institute for Immunology, Center for Infectious Disease and Vaccine Discovery, Crotty Lab (start play at 25:10): here--> Mexicowanderer: ....I am following daily the Global spread of the South African sub-type B.1.351 here-->

RE: 2019–20 CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC POSTINGS

on edit: Per 100 population: Israel's vaccination level as of 3rd January (2 days ago) was 14.14 of their entire population (total population: 9.2 million). They are in 1st place for Covid vaccinations. Israel has a centralized medical care system, and are using Army medics to deploy vaccinations on a huge scale. In second place, is Bahrain at 3.62 of population vaccinated. Tied for 3rd place is the UK and USA, at 1.39/1.38 Mexico is in 16th place at a tiny fraction of 100 (0.02). Canada is in 8th place, at 0.31 of population vaccinated. The US deployed into arm, 4.25 million doses as of midnight last night. Canada, 117,768 single doses total as midnight. Mexico, 24,998 doses in arm.....as of December 30th Selectable multi-table, map and chart data here-->

RE: 2019–20 CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC POSTINGS

The problem with the newly discovered variant is not that the existing vaccines won’t work on it, the issue is that it is vastly more contagious than the original strain, and we are still many months away from getting a meaningful percentage of the population vaccinated. Precisely. Well said. The only constant with any (all) viral pathogens is: genetic drift. Every virus will mutate, and sars-cov-2 is no exception. Polyvalent vaccines will be the norm, maybe as soon as January as other sars-cov-2 sub-types emerge. We will ALWAYS be playing catch-up with this one.....just like the flu virus, we'll be receiving new anti-covid vaccines probably forever.

RE: Class C RV Bomb

....based on the scant information already in the media, my bet would be disgruntled employee. Probably a one off situation. If I was investigating this one, this would be the angle I would pursue.

RE: Another article on Snowbirds, or the lack thereof

Previous Canada-USA border closure extensions Here is the history of the Canada-USA border closure due to the coronavirus: ....The Canada/US border: Canada-bound will likely remain closed until the Global Covid situation drops down to the per 100,000 ratio that many States World-wide are using to curtail non-discretionary travel. Remember that travelers wanting into Canada who may be coming/traveling from countries (or, States) on the Covid no entry list, can simply fly into the US, and potentially drive across the land border....IF the Canada-bound land border "opens" prematurely. Think about it. Its a loop-hole that Canada will never allow if "the virus" remains persistent well into 2021 (and God forbid, into 2022). IMO, the Canada-bound land border will remain closed till the end of 2021. And I would not be surprised if Canada's land border remains closed (bilaterally, or, unilaterally) till the end of winter of 2021/2022; this to guard against a potential 3rd/4th wave. Something that we should all consider is a possible re-vaccination campaign with a polyvalent agent against several strains (maybe two or three new strains) of sars-cov-2 next year. In this situation, public health is always behind, playing catch-up.

RE: 2019–20 CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC POSTINGS

Tachycardia seems to be an all too common effect of an allergic reaction to the Phizer serum. ....seems to be a lot of Internet talk on adverse immune effects from PEGylated drugs (many, many drugs on the market for a loooong time are PEGylated; if you've had a colonoscopy, you've been exposed to it). PEG conjugates are used in medications because they are considered the least harmful in animal and human. However, this doesn't absolve anyone from doing their due diligence before receiving a vaccine, or, a nanoparticle vaccine. Here are some interesting papers on the subject of PEG drug delivery: On nanoparticle vaccinology; turning nucleic acids into vaccines-- understandable to the layman (a lot of research has already gone into battlefield biowarfare, and mRNA vaccines): The full NIH Covid lecture on Nucleic Acid Delivery Systems for RNA Therapy and Gene Editing: here--> Anderson Explains Role of Nanoparticles in Vaccines at NIH here--> More in-depth on immunogenicity: Anti-PEG antibodies in the clinic: current issues and beyond PEGylation here-->

RE: 2019–20 CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC POSTINGS

From what I have heard,no tracking for the public per say. Those that work at a distribution point near me(hospital) I know only get a general....your on the list... Thanks. I can't seem to find anything on distribution, inventory or production other than piecemeal media reports. Seems like the only 2 candidates approved may take 8 months to 1.2 years to get North Americans (say, 80%) vaccinated. Does this seem realistic? Now, least developed countries....that is another ball-game entirely (1 to 2 years for 80% vaccination?)....

RE: MXP

The peso is soaring ....the past 8 months has been anomalous for the MXN (and, an exact price correlation~trend with the USD~CAD, too). Unfortunately, MXN took a major hit between the 18th of February, and the 23rd March, this due to a huge flight from/out of riskier currencies....because of you know what. *USD~MXN has been steadily favoring MXN from around ~ 12th May to today. The MXN will come back to normal (read: pre-Covid days of 18.60 ~ 19.ish) at this trend and probably stabilize by appx March-ish of next year. *this is my opinion only; do not use this as trading advice

RE: Great Movie

.....Medicine Man is a good movie. I think I have a copy of it in my DVD library. There was some controversy over the inspiration behind the main character, as I recall? The inspiration for the movie was reported widely to be Dr. Wilburn H. Ferguson, a phytopharmacologist who was working several decades with the Jivaro tribe, deep in the Amazon. That tribe's oral pharmacological tradition reported some plant/derivative cured some form(s) of cancer.... Another related specialization is ethnobotany.

RE: Great Movie

....we will have to check that one out. Thanks. Here is one (we are both over 60) that we fully enjoyed (free on Youtube): the 2015 film, A Bridge of Spies. A historical drama on the Cold War (the film entangles the capture of U2 pilot Francis Gary Powers, with the convicted and imprisoned spy, Rudolf Abel). No foul language. The film is an adaptation of the lawyer James B. Donovan memoirs entitled: Strangers on a Bridge; Donovan being an officer in the Office of Scientific Research and Development, and, eventual legal council for the Office of Strategic Services (OSS).

RE: Great Movie

There are some people today who believe the moon landing in 1969 was faked ....good movie. ...that truly is incredible, since equipment left on the Moon by missions are still up there.....especially the laser ranging retroreflector, still working many decades after its installation. If anyone is in doubt, just visit the McDonald Observatory, in Texas, who use the reflector frequently :D ...actually spotting (by eye) a man-made artifact left on the Moon would be nearly impossible; even technology like the Hubble telescope would only resolve something as large as a football stadium from Earth's orbit out as far as the Moon's surface.

RE: 2019–20 CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC POSTINGS

BC Snob: ....that Covid calculator is quite interesting. Thanks for the link. The "real probable prevalence" is quite interesting, and very important when inputting the % infected in "a group". This could vary from 2x to 10x, however a given example of 4x was used here, under "Inputs": "In Section 4 we detail an exemple with North Dakota which had on Nov 12 an incidence of 175 per 100,000. This means a crude 1.75% estimate, with a real value probably closer to 4×1.75=7%." ....I have not checked this yet, however, an Android (and/or, Apple) phone app would be useful, using the phone's GPS/location, dynamically recalculating the user's risk of Covid infection; this served up as the user physically traverses urban area/County polygons (already pre-seeded by several levels of Government with infection data). Changing the granularity to include encounters with building barrier footprints mapped to time/visit algorithms, would be exceedingly useful (every building in the US (and indeed, practically the entire human environment of the World) already digitized and categorized by the DOI (and, OSM) for some years now, and available via WMS / WMTS (not medical WMTS telemetry, but web mapping tile services) geospatial feeds). This highly-granular version would be perfect for first responders (medical, police, military, critical infrastructure)....and also for Border Services, airlines, public transport with the ability to make travel-history risk assessments on in-coming human traffic.

RE: 2019–20 CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC POSTINGS

It’s highly unlikely the UK is also batch testing upon receipt. ....its unlikely that any country receiving a vaccine as high-profile as a tricky stability Covid mRNA vaccine manufactured outside the purchasing country, without doing live statistical sampling of a significant random selection of said vaccine. Certainly, Canada would never....

England approves Pfizer vaccines and provides ordinal of who gets jabbed starting next week. Yeah. Pretty amazing. The UK is QC-ing 800,000 Pfizer doses presently, to be deployed any day now. Nothing on AZeneca. That's weird.
