  1. I don’t think the books necessarily give that approach to parenting a tick of approval though. They seem to me like a story of how things were more than a story of exactly how things should be. I always got the feeling that Laura had a preference for Pa over Ma somehow. And you get little glimpses of the disagreements between the parents and where Laura feels that they are being unfair.
  2. Just the usual nightly walk, pretty hot today so it was slow and low energy
  3. The winter definitely had an impact on my parents. So relieved that they can go out and about safely for now here.
  4. I haven’t heard. According to Dr Swann, they have quite advanced medical data collecting technology so they are being given more doses by Pfizer in exchange for collecting data that will help with further vaccine knowledge.
  5. abc news Fewer doses of AstraZeneca shipped to Europe AstraZeneca said it will ship fewer doses of its coronavirus vaccine to the European Union than anticipated due to supply chain problems. The company is waiting for the European Medicines Agency to approve its vaccine, which could happen when the EU regulator meets on January 29. AstraZeneca’s statement said, “initial volumes will be lower than originally anticipated due to reduced yields at a manufacturing site within our European supply chain.” The statement went on to say that “we will be supplying tens of millions
  6. https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/955239/NERVTAG_paper_on_variant_of_concern__VOC__B.1.1.7.pdf Sage analysis on whether or not variant b117 is more deadly. A little inconclusive but possible.
  7. I did some quick reading about colchicine just out of curiosity and it has quite a long history that I thought was quite interesting. from Wiki “The plant source of colchicine, the autumn crocus (Colchicum autumnale), was described for treatment of rheumatism and swelling in the Ebers Papyrus (circa 1500 BC), an Egyptianmedical papyrus.[32] It is a toxic alkaloid and secondary metabolite.[13][33][18] Colchicumextract was first described as a treatment for gout in De Materia Medica by Pedanius Dioscorides, in the first century AD. Use of the bulb-like corms of Colchicum to treat gout
  8. I haven’t read this in depth but sounding very positive https://thecanadian.news/2021/01/23/major-breakthrough-large-study-shows-effectiveness-of-colchicine-to-treat-covid-19/# In 4,159 patients proven to be diagnosed with COVID-19 using a PCR test, colchicine resulted in a 25% decrease in hospitalizations, a 50% decrease in the use of ventilation and a decrease in deaths by 44%. “It’s a major breakthrough,” says Dr Late. Colchicine works to prevent the “major inflammatory storm” that affects the lungs and can send patients to hospital. Im not sure if this is the other of
  9. BNO Israel COVID update: 10% fully vaccinated -New cases: 6,159 -Positivity rate: 8.9% (-0.2) -In hospital: 1,822 (-) -In ICU: 399 (+1) -New deaths: 21 Vaccinated: -1st dose: 2.5M (+38K) -2nd dose: 899K (+69K) Population vaccinated: -1st dose: 27.7% (+0.4) -2nd dose: 10.1% (+0.8)
  10. This is worrying. And this is the least worrying variant because at least the vaccines works.
  11. I think if I understand right it’s that you need a lower viral dose to get infected so whatever route you get infected you won’t need as much exposure.
  12. I’m so sorry for your loss Surface transmission risk is so low this is most likely impossible. Far more likely to have been transmitted through personal contact. Definitely not your fault.
  13. For the US the cases also seem to be flattening off or even turning down although it’s hard to be sure with the days being a bit bumpy. Deaths don’t seem to be going down yet (4,369 yesterday) but hopefully will be soon.
  14. Worldwide the curve for cases definitely looks to be flattening off. The 20th was a new record for deaths with 17,484 with yesterday slightly lower but still over 16,000
  15. Phoenixfireartisanforge? I like the rising Phoenix idea this all makes me think of Phoenix and the carpet
