Re: New coronavirus in/from China

Globally less than 10% of the population have had even one vaccine dose, and they are concentrated in a handful of countries. The Indian variant appears to be significantly more transmittable the Kent variant, itself more transmittable than the earlier strains. Yes, medical treatment is better than ...

Re: New coronavirus in/from China

Also, note, again, this was avoidable! If we hadn't had flights landing from India every day, if we'd actually bothered with proper quarantine, we'd have zero cases of this new strain from India. But, due to our incompetent, hard of learning government not only will it impact the UK, but we'll like...

Re: New coronavirus in/from China

This Indian strain is looking a lot 'fitter' than our Kent strain (itself fitter than the original) - either it's more transmissible or escapes immunity, or both. No wonder India was hit bad. The good news for the UK is that the vaccines really do seem to be working, those now being hospitalised ten...

Re: US watch

If they paid AND then got the systems back online, that suggests a higher degree of competence from the hackers than usual.

I hear Ireland has also had a ransomware attack today, but unlikely to be Darkside.

Quite a lot! Obama and Biden we're instrumental in developing and deploying cyber weapons - the NSA, on Biden's watch very likely developed the weapons used in this attack.

First member of sage team calls for delay of restritions being lifted on Monday as a result of the Indian variant. Now dominant strain in Bolton and some other areas. From the guardian.

Re: Interesting doomer TV show, from USA.

I think this process is not nearly as significant for Greenland or East Antarctica the geology is a bit different, East Antarctica has a colder thicker lithosphere. Also, this process is mostly a lagging response. While there is an instant elastic response (you can measure the virtical movement with...

Re: Brexit Watch

Brexit was very much driven by (mostly working class) English Nationalists - Lazy thinking. Equivalent to a comfort blanket to snuggle up too. Wales voted to leave, Millions in Scotland/NI voted to leave. But if it helps you to think it was the dispossessed ignorant English Gammons, then fine Ha, M...

Who's fooling who? We (the west) get all the stuff and the Chinese get a load of fiat currency and government bonds.

Re: Brexit Watch

Wales. BBC reported a month ago that support for independence was at an all time high of 30-40%. Result Plaid Cymyru support has dropped. The rash of independence parties have lost their deposits. Yes, support for independence is at an all time high, but that doesn't automatically translate to incr...

Complexity!

I've often thought it wouldn't be the existing car companies that come out on top as the industry moves electric.

I was a telecoms engineer in a previous life, and we often used handsets within Faraday cages with an external antenna feeder taken through the box. The ...
