Spot the differences.



As said, who's paying for all this?

I got one as well, but haven't really looked at it yet.

U.S. requires inspections for wire failure on Boeing 737 Classic planes
Reuters - The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) said on Friday it was requiring U.S. operators of 143 Boeing Co (BA.N) 737 Classic series airplanes to check for possible wire failures stemming from an investigation into an Indonesia crash in January.

The 737 Classic is an older generation of planes more than two decades old. The FAA said the issue affected 1,041 737-300, -400 and -500 Classic series airplanes worldwide, but many are currently out of service, because of COVID-19 or other issues.

The FAA is issuing an airworthiness directive for operators to verify that the flap synchro wire, which plays a role in the operation of the aircraft’s auto-throttle system, is securely connected to a safety sensor.

The wire failure could go undetected by the auto-throttle computer on affected airplanes and pose a safety risk.

The FAA is requiring some speedier checks than had been suggested by Boeing, which said late on Friday that it was "engaged in ongoing efforts to introduce safety and performance improvements across the fleet."

The newer 737 MAX and 737 NG are unaffected by the directive.

‘We need to get people off the bridge immediately’: Hear the 911 call that brought traffic to a halt
Inspectors were conducting the first day of inspection of the Hernando de Soto Bridge when they spotted a crack in one of the beams that help keep that bridge standing.

The structural crack, as engineers call it, could have caused a disaster had it not been caught.

The beam helps to hold the span of the bridge together as 41,000 cars and trucks ride over the Hernando de Soto Bridge every day.



The Hernando de Soto Bridge is outside Memphis, crossing the Mississippi River and straddles the Tennessee-Arkansas line.

in response to Gary's post 2075797
Can you armor your fiber so a idiot backhoe can't take it out? All important factors.


When some years ago, in a remote part of the globe and I was living next to the Airport, the main job of the airport was servicing the offshore oil rigs. The airport was having a new helicopter terminal built. It was to be situated North of the cables that connected the control tower to the radar site. So the airport staff marked out the route of the cables and about every 20 meters put up a sign saying "Do not dig here".

On the day the work started the backhoe operator turned up first and you know what happened.

He didn't read the notices and thought the markers were where he had to dig the first trench.

Make America Genuflect Again Trump Supporters

Maybe Liz should break away and form the "Real Republican Party" they'll get enough votes to ensure the Dems stay in power for another 4 years. She hasn't the support to change the minds of the present knucklehead sycophants and after another 4 years they might just work out they need a younger leader to pull the right into one cohesive party.

Just how many of those problems are the result the previous administration failing to do their jobs?

Trump didn't believe it was Russian hackers, he blamed Ukraine. And also put very little money or competent leaders into the agencies that deal with hacking.

The pipeline problem is the same as above.

Trump and his son-in-law haven't got a clue about the middle east and therefore all their efforts were put into the easy solutions. Or made the completely wrong decision to move the Embassy.

And now after a few months you expect Joe to have a solution to all the problems that were not fixed in the previous four years.

That's the whole point of the lights- if it's green you can go. If it's red then you don't.

If it is like the junction near my eldest son, the lights for the truck only get a cancellation of the turn right green. Meaning he has to follow the normal rules for turning across traffic, and as they haven't started moving then he might think wrongly he can continue his move.

At the junction near my sons, if you are in the cars position you frequently have to either jump a few meters forward or creep forward to signify to those turning right that you now have a green.
It's made worse by the lights having movement detection, and therefore if the car doesn't move quickly enough then the lights think there is no traffic there and go through to the next phase of operation.

Are you absolutely certain that the chassis at location 'A' is at the same potential as the chassis at location 'B' or any other location.

I've come across earthing problems when the earth at the top of a hill wasn't, as is above an insulating rock layer
And another problem in a vehicle with two battery packs where the second set, used for comms equipment, wasn't charging correctly because the negative connection was the vehicle chassis and as you guessed there were paint layers between parts of the chassis.

And the world of cypher equipment incorrect earthing can cause unwanted radiation of signals.

Two more cases of over reaction by police.
Prosecutor says Black driver who was handcuffed, arrested should not have been stopped
A Black employee with the Department of Defense who was pulled over, handcuffed and arrested on charges of reckless driving, resisting arrest and eluding police should never have been stopped in the first place, a Virginia commonwealth's attorney says.

The Washington Post reported Monday that Fairfax Commonwealth’s Attorney Steve Descano dismissed all counts previously faced by Juanisha Brooks after she was pulled over by a Virginia State Police officer in early March.

During the incident, dashcam footage showed Trooper Robert Hindenlang refusing to tell Brooks why he initially pulled her over, apparently for a broken taillight, before eventually dragging her out of the vehicle and demanding she take a field sobriety test after she admitted to having one alcoholic beverage.

Two women rented a U Haul for a move Then the LAPD swarmed
Shibani Balsaver parked the rented U-Haul in front of her new Hollywood apartment. It was moving day in February of 2020, and Balsaver was preparing to unload all of her belongings into her first solo apartment. She and a friend, Sheilanee Sen, would be done in a couple of hours, if everything went smoothly. Moments later, a swarm of police officers ordered the two women to exit the truck and lay on their stomachs in the middle of the street while officers searched the rental truck, according to court records.

Last May, the Peoples Church and nine other Oregon churches sued the state in an attempt to override Gov. Kate Brown’s (D) “Stay Home, Save Lives” coronavirus order that capped statewide gatherings at 25 attendees. The measure did not exempt religious services. The group of churches argued that the restrictions violated their constitutional rights on freedom of religion.

and now;
COVID-19 outbreak at Salem’s Peoples Church sickens at least 74 people
and
Oregon has traced other coronavirus outbreaks to churches. Last June, at least 236 members of a Pentecostal church in eastern Oregon tested positive for the virus. Last month, the state’s Occupational Safety and Health agency received a complaint on an Apostolic church that allegedly failed to enforce masks and social distancing during services; at least 14 parishioners were infected, the Albany Democrat-Herald reported.


quotes from WP "An Oregon church sued over covid-19 restrictions. Now, an outbreak there has sickened 74."

BBC - Alcohol deaths highest for 20 years in England and Wales
Alcohol killed more people in 2020 in England and Wales than in any of the previous 20 years, official data shows.

There were 7,423 deaths from alcohol misuse last year - a rise of 20% from 2019, the Office for National Statistics says.

Deaths increased from March 2020 onwards when the UK's coronavirus epidemic forced the first national lockdown.

Most deaths were related to long-term drinking problems and dependency.

Report of high number of menstrual health problems in women tear gassed in Portland, Oregen.
https://bmcpublichealth.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/s12889-021-10859-w

Original news story was, NYT - Hundreds Reported Abnormal Menstruation After Exposure to Tear Gas, Study Finds
Dr. Torgrimson-Ojerio decided she would try to figure out whether these anecdotes were outliers or representative of a more common phenomenon. She surveyed around 2,200 adults who said they had been exposed to tear gas in Portland last summer. In a study published this week in the journal BMC Public Health, she reported that 899 of them — more than 54 percent of the respondents who potentially menstruate — said they had experienced abnormal menstrual cycles.
...
Suspicions about tear gas and menstruation first came up more than a decade ago, during the Arab Spring protests, Dr. Jordt noted.

In 2011, Chile also banned the use of tear gas after a study suggested that CS gas could cause miscarriages and harm young children. Three days later, the Chilean police lifted the ban, insisting that the type of tear gas they used was perfectly safe.

Good luck with that. My fridge door seal has split, and assuming the freezer door will not be far behind, I tried to source replacements. No luck with any UK supplier, but did find them listed in an EU country.
The price quoted with delivery, tax etc. was greater than a cheap replacement fridge/freezer, but not right size.

Now trying to find a replacement in stock that fits the height/width dimensions and with preferred split. Not having much luck even though most manufacturers have one listed.

Geeze, if you're not interested, or willing, to drive your own car, then for the sake of God, take the bus, or the train, or a taxi.
Where in heavens name is this world heading? Just because it's possible to do something (technologically, medically, genetically, or otherwise),
that doesn't mean that you have to do it.

But by all means, also implant chips in your brain people, so you don't have to think for yourselves any longer. Is this kind of crap the direction to where this world is heading?
In that case, I'm glad that I'm not young any longer.

Good news on disease that kills 400,000 people each year.

Malaria vaccine from Oxford covid-19 team is most effective ever made
A malaria vaccine shown to be 77 per cent effective in trials – the highest level ever achieved – offers hope of controlling a disease that kills an estimated 400,000 people each year, many of them children.

Adrian Hill at the University of Oxford and his colleagues hope it can be approved for use within the next two years, building on the speed and lessons learned through the rapid development of covid-19 vaccines – the researchers also work on the Oxford/AstraZeneca coronavirus vaccine.

“With the commitment by our commercial partner, the Serum Institute of India, to manufacture at least 200 million doses annually in the coming years, the vaccine has the potential to have a major public health impact if licensure is achieved,” he told the PA news agency.

Hill hopes the vaccine will be swiftly approved following final trial results, which he expects the team to report next year.

“Malaria killed at least four times as many more people in Africa last year as covid did,” he said. “Nobody for a moment questioned whether covid should have an emergency use review and authorisation in Africa – of course it did, very quickly. So why shouldn’t a disease that firstly kills children rather than older people, certainly killed an awful lot more, be prioritised for emergency use authorisation in Africa?”

The Turkish trial was only carried out on a very small number of people, in the tens, no more.

A real-world study of millions of Chileans finds CoronaVac vaccine has found it 67% effective against symptoms after both shots.

The Brazil 50.4% numbers come from Sao Paulo in a trial of 13,000 people.

For the moment I will go with the low efficiency numbers and say with that few people tested , that wasn't a trial in Turkey.

The defence budget is more important than any NSF funded project.

Only that part of the defence budget that is essential, and when considering the U.S.the non-essential costs in Iraq and Afghanistan were north of $4.4 Trillion.

Plus the Defence Department should also be funding scientific research, which in many cases can also have civilian uses.

Other things I noted in news reports;

The pistols have a trigger safety and the tazers do not.

Brooklyn Center Police Department protocol dictates that officers wear their guns on their dominant side and Tasers on the opposite side of their bodies, to reduce the risk that they will confuse the two weapons. But this doesn't stop them having the tazers in a cross draw position so they can be used with the dominant hand.

“all Taser devices shall be clearly and distinctly marked to differentiate them from the duty weapon and any other device.”

The device should not be used against people “whose position or activity may result in collateral injury” — including people who are “operating vehicles.” Mr. Wright was sitting in the driver’s seat and his car traveled several blocks after he was shot.

IMO it all points to a lack of training.

Covid-19: US agencies call for pause in Johnson & Johnson vaccine
US health authorities are calling for a pause in the use of the Johnson & Johnson Covid-19 vaccine, after reports of extremely rare blood clotting cases.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said it was acting "out of an abundance of caution".

It said six cases of severe blood clotting had been detected in more than 6.8 million doses of the vaccine.

The recommendation follows similar rare cases in the AstraZeneca vaccine, which has prompted some curbs in its use.

In a series of tweets, the FDA said it and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) were reviewing "six reported US cases of a rare & severe type of blood clot in individuals after receiving the vaccine. Right now, these adverse events appear to be extremely rare".

"We are recommending a pause in the use of this vaccine out of an abundance of caution," it said.

Boeing grounds dozens of 737 Max Jets on Electrical Flaw
Boeing Co. grounded dozens of 737 Max jets to repair an electrical flaw that emerged in recently delivered models, forcing airlines to cancel flights and line up replacement aircraft.

U.S. carriers including Southwest Airlines Co., American Airlines Group Inc. and United Airlines Holdings Inc. parked a combined 67 of the workhorse planes Friday, about a third of the Max jets in service worldwide. The manufacturing glitch affects a subset of aircraft at 16 airlines, not the entire Max fleet, Boeing said in a statement

The UK has chosen to extend to the max the gap between the 1st and 2nd jabs. This gives the max possible number of people that have some protection, and it looks like it is working so far, as new cases are down to ~3,000/day from 60,000/day in early Jan and below 50 deaths/day from 1,200+/day in late Jan. (7 day averages)


can you quantify how much of the reduction was due solely to vaccination and not just from immunity gained from prior infection?

the numbers were already in freefall right when vaccination started, and continued to fall well before the effects of the "first jab" vaccination could be seen. if you believe the herd immunity myth from first jabs, you'd only JUST start seeing some traction recently, but it's been diving naturally for quite some time now. the UKs numbers peaked around Jan 9th, and at that time only 3% of the population had received the at least the first dose, not enough to account for the sudden drop in cases.

We have had a controlled tiered lock-down that started on 2nd Dec 2020 and
– December 19: The Prime Minister cancels Christmas for almost 18 million people across London and eastern and south-east England by moving them into a newly created Tier 4 for two weeks – effectively returning to the lockdown rules of November – after scientists warn of the rapid spread of the new variant VUI 202012/01.

The lock-downs were only started to be eased at the end of March, but still no pubs etc open or foreign holidays allowed .
15 February - British and Irish citizens arriving in the UK after 4.00am are required to quarantine at a government designated hotel for ten days

Also because we have have a good Covid sequencing organisation it has done about 50% of all sequencing in the world, the Brazil and SA variants have been detected early and effectively stopped.

So it isn't just down to vaccinations, lock-downs and quarantines have also aided the decreases.

my only argument was against the comment that "only 1 country" could do wrong. if even ONE other country is handling things poorly, the whole argument is false. certainly more than the one country he doesn't like is having leadership/management issues regarding the pandemic. and such a comment shows clear bias. this whole thread has basically devolved into a "US bad, everyone else good" echo chamber with key players just feeding off each other LOL.

And that is a comment that doesn't match reality as we have an idiot called Boris over here, that we have criticized frequently.

Billionaires added about $8 trillion to their total net worth from last year.
The number of newly minted and reissued billionaires soared last year, Forbes reported Tuesday in its annual ranking, a staggering accumulation of individual wealth that stands in sharp contrast to the widespread economic struggles unleashed by the coronavirus pandemic.

The number of billionaires on Forbes’ 35th annual ranking swelled by 660 to 2,755 — a roughly 30 percent jump from a year ago — and 493 of them are first timers. And a staggering 7 of 8 of them are richer than they were before the pandemic. Forbes calculates net worth by using stock prices and exchange rates from March 5.

Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, with an estimated fortune of $177 billion, topped the list for the fourth year running. Tesla chief executive Elon Musk came in at No. 2 at $151 billion. The shares of both companies soared last year, largely contributing to both men’s net worth and causing them to toggle for the richest man title on various lists.

As a class, billionaires added about $8 trillion to their total net worth from last year, totaling $13.1 trillion. The United States had the most billionaires, at 724, extending a rapid rise in wealth that hasn’t happened since the Rockefellers and the Carnegies roughly a century ago. China, including Hong Kong and Macao, had the second highest number of billionaires: 698.

Follow up, AstraZeneca: Is there a blood clot risk?
UK has been working down the age range, over 60's have been vaccinated, the 50 - 59 age group is the group now being jabbed.
Germany initially refused to use the vaccine in the over 65s because of a lack of trial data. However, CVSTs are inherently more common in younger women and taking the pill increases the risk.

and the UK is at 0.045/100,000 all men (Daily Mail)

66 percent of American adults born before 1946 belong to a church,
compared with 58 percent of baby boomers,
50 percent of Generation X
and 36 percent of millennials.

* All-new F-150 Police Responder now offers enhanced top speed of 120 mph...
* New automatic four-wheel-drive mode and torque-on-demand transfer case constantly adjusts torque to front and rear wheels as needed to improve performance and handling on dry pavement, while increasing traction on wet, slick and less stable surfaces for a [b]more seamless transition between on- and off-road driving[b].

Is this:

  • Starsky and Hutch?
  • Dukes of Hazzard??
  • Blues Brothers?
  • Or just USA Downtown?



Here in the UK, we went over to using helicopters to avoid risking police officers and innocent bystanders alike from silly TV-esq car chases.


You forget 9 out of 10 chases involve gun play over here.

I don't know that applies if they were given a little makeover.

EU's 'most embarrassing' day: How the story behind the vaccine factory raid unravelled
Italian elite unit found millions of AstraZeneca doses thought to be meant for the UK - but their destination was the EU itself
It was an extraordinary story – the European Commission had turned detective to find AstraZeneca's secret stockpile of vaccines reserved for Britain.

During a surprise raid over the weekend, an elite unit of Italian military police acting on EU orders discovered 29 million jab doses hoarded at a factory near Rome.

The discovery appeared to confirm the EU's long-held suspicion that AstraZeneca was giving the UK special treatment, secretly exporting doses to its home country while failing to deliver on contracts agreed with Brussels.

Yet, as EU officials admitted on Wednesday, the allegation, briefed to the Continental press, simply wasn't true.

In fact, most of the doses discovered in the Italian factory were destined for the EU itself, with the remainder headed for poorer countries across the world.

One former Europe minister called it possibly the "most embarrassing day in the EU's history".

Trump Dumped: Luxury Travel Agency Quietly Drops Former President’s Hotels
Without announcement, Virtuoso Travel no longer carries Trump-branded accommodations.

A major booking agency catering to the luxury travel market has dropped all Trump-branded hotels and resorts from its elite services.

Virtuoso Travel didn’t publicly announce its change in policy, which affects all 10 hotels and resorts operated by the former U.S. president’s company. The change occurred the week of March 8.

“As of March 8, 2021, Trump Hotels are no longer part of the Virtuoso network,” said Misty Ewing Belles, managing director of global public relations for the agency. Belles did not comment on why the decision was reached.

Trump hotels were still listed on the Virtuoso website on March 9, but have since been removed.

“Virtuoso considers many variables when reviewing both existing and new network participation. Out of respect for all involved parties, and as a general policy, we do not share comments regarding our non-renewal and exit decisions,” Belles said.

The decision came 60 days after Americans watched a mob of rioters attack the U.S. Capitol in Washington, with some of them saying Trump inspired them.

My understanding is that they are supposed to request refugee status at the border or point of entry, not just illegally force their way into this country and then get around to asking.

There I agree with you, but if they even enter at a port of entry, they are treated as illegals and some have taken to court and found guilty of illegally crossing, which then makes it illegal for them to apply. That was all Trumps doing.

No, just straight forward economics based on the the model used by the U.S. and most western nations to pay for the benefits system. And it requires an continuous increase in population to pay for it, and at the moment and some years now the birth rate has fallen below the 2.1 needed to maintain status quo to about 1.7 kids/family, in the U.S. and Europe.

Immigrants are required if you want the system to pay the $70,000 needed for the medical bill for your last year of your life.

The real border problem

Too true.
With a shortage of babies, in about 15 years there will be a shortage of workers and that means a shortage of taxes. And with a shortage of taxes there will be pressure to decrease the benefits for pensioners.
So all those who will be pensioners in 15 years time do you want reduced pensions and health care or allow an increase in immigrants, preferably legal immigrants, but to do that will mean an increase in the number of visa', overturning the decreases ordered by the last President.

Early Adopter U.A.E. Starts Giving Third Dose of Sinopharm Vaccine Amid Efficacy Concerns
Doctors say in some cases, Chinese shot isn’t generating adequate antibody response

DUBAI—Health authorities in the United Arab Emirates have begun administering a third dose of the Sinopharm coronavirus vaccine to at least some residents, as doctors say the Chinese-made shots in some cases haven’t generated enough protective antibodies.

The U.A.E. has served as one of the primary testing grounds for the vaccine, which is manufactured by a Chinese state-owned pharmaceutical company and is a mainstay of the Gulf monarchy’s rapid immunization campaign. The vaccine is also used in Hungary, Serbia, Pakistan and elsewhere.

G42 Healthcare, the company that coordinated Sinopharm’s Phase 3 clinical trials in the U.A.E. and elsewhere in the Middle East said a “select group of people are being administered a third shot to observe the immune system response” as part of a scientific study.

It declined to say how many people are affected and why, referring reporters to the U.A.E. health authorities, who didn’t respond to multiple requests for comment.

Probably not, companies like Croda, which produces essential ingredients for vaccines, are having to find ways of increasing production just to meet the present day requirements.
There are also production limits for vials and suitable syringes.

* define quickly

edit] If European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen imposes an export ban on vaccines to the UK, Boris could easily respond by banning the export of the Croda ingredients to the EU. Although he has said he will not, as that would harm too many innocent people.

How Russia glosses over its Covid death toll
A year into the pandemic, the virus this team are battling is familiar, but their careful daily routine is a reminder of the risk - it was last autumn that Covid-19 struck hardest in Perm, on its sweep from Moscow across the regions, and the number of sick and dead shot up.

But there is very little talk in Russia of the death toll from Covid. The full data revealed by excess mortality is not secret, but it's never highlighted, and the preliminary tally published each day by the government significantly underplays the impact.

Donald Trump's wealth takes tumble during presidency
Donald Trump's net worth dropped by about $700m to $2.3bn (£1.65bn) during his time as president, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index.

The Covid-19 pandemic hit his fortunes hard, with Mr Trump's office buildings, branded hotels and resorts losing revenue and falling in value.

His fleet of planes and golf courses have also seen drops in their value.

Mr Trump is currently under a criminal investigation into his financial affairs and his family business.

Climate change: Jet fuel from waste 'dramatically lowers' emissions
A new approach to making jet fuel from food waste has the potential to massively reduce carbon emissions from flying, scientists say.

Currently, most of the food scraps that are used for energy around the world are converted into methane gas.

But researchers in the US have found a way of turning this waste into a type of paraffin that works in jet engines.

The authors of the new study say the fuel cuts greenhouse gas emissions by 165% compared to fossil energy.

This figure comes from the reduction in carbon emitted from airplanes plus the emissions that are avoided when food waste is diverted from landfill.

Globally up to 60% of blood clots occur within 90 days of hospital discharge
More people die from blood clots each year than the total number of people who lose their lives annually due to AIDS, breast cancer, and motor vehicle crashes combined.

He, and some of his followers, attended a training camp run by John the Baptist, who was executed for his crimes, in AD 28 or 29.
He hung out with known terrorists like Simon the Zealot. The Zealots would later go on to stab Romans and Roman sympathisers.
He vandalised the Temple and smashed up traders tables. John 2:13 onwards
He said the Temple would soon be destroyed. Mark 13:2
He said, “I did not come to bring peace, but a sword” (Matthew 10:34)

And if alive today would not get permission to enter the U.S.

When there is a problem, many times it pays to stand back and work out whether there is a problem in the first place. On immigration in the U.S. and also in Europe the question I will ask, even if it seems a little odd, is:

Assuming you will want and probably need benefits, such as health care and pensions, in a few years, who is going to pay for them?

The answer of course is - "Those that are of working age."

And there lies a problem or two, the number of retiree's is rising and the number of workers is set to fall. Net result the workers will have to pay more and more taxes if you are to have the retirement you think you deserve.
You might just need to convince those younger people it is in there interest to pay higher taxes just to keep you healthy and warm. They'll probably tell you to "Take a long walk on a short pier." if they are polite.

We know why the number of retiree's is rising, baby boomers and the next couple of generations.

But since then the birth rate has fallen so that for the last twenty years at least, without Immigration, the number of workers paying taxes would fall.

So either you have to persuade the fairer sex to have three kids each or welcome immigrants.

The best of luck trying to persuade women to have more kids, the easier option might just be allow more immigrants. Of course these need to be legal. So some sums need to be done how many to allow in each year and increase the number of visas.
Not decrease them as Trump did, because it now looks like his reductions have probably led to an increase in 'illegals' because they cannot get in legally.

The immigrants that are Lawful Permanent Residents are the only ones that can receive benefits and those have limitations and from that group many of the 18 - 25 age group serve in the U.S. Armed Forces.

For undocumented immigrants the only benefits they can receive are;

Emergency medical treatment under Medicaid if the individual meets the other eligibility requirements and the medical condition is not related to an organ transplant procedure.

Immunizations for immunizable diseases and testing for and treatment of symptoms of communicable diseases.

Free public education for grades K-12.

Federally subsidized school lunch and school breakfast programs for those eligible for free public education under state or local law.

For all immigrants that get jobs The Institute on Taxation & Economic Policy in March 2019 estimated that Undocumented immigrants contribute significantly to state and local taxes, collectively paying an estimated $11.74 billion a year.

There is very little evidence, that I can find, that supports your argument, but I am open to change my views if you can provide documentation.

I agree that the loss of height is due mainly to loss of momentum rather than the pull of gravity.


Which leads me to one of my favourite quiz questions. What objects do you speed up to move them backwards and slow down to move them forward?

No, the forward momentum of the satellite is the stronger force, with gravity as the weaker force causing it to drop slightly...

The earth's gravity, for our example, acts to change the direction of travel of the satellite. Otherwise, the satellite would continue onwards on a straight line path and would no longer be a satellite.

Note that the 'change in direction' is the act of the satellite enjoying a freefall acceleration towards the earth.

As Douglas Adams beautifully explains, the trick is to enjoy that freefall but to always miss the ground...

A satellite always misses the ground due to enjoying enough orbital velocity such that as it accelerates towards the earth, it has enough perpendicular orbital motion such that the earth always remains perpendicular to that orbital motion despite the continual freefall acceleration towards the earth.

This all works beautifully for a round sphere for the earth.

A flat earth would be somewhat problematic for orbits!

International Space Station, only 420km above Earth, where people are weightless, because gravity is so weak,
Forward motion - 27,600 km/h
Downward motion - 2 km/month

Exactly.

So for example, our various artificial satellites are always falling back towards earth... Except... They have enough orbital velocity that by the time they have fallen down to earth, they are another quarter away round their merry freefall...

Cue Douglas Adams quote!

No, the forward momentum of the satellite is the stronger force, with gravity as the weaker force causing it to drop slightly. If gravity becomes the dominant force then the satellites path will now turn towards the large object and there will be a Crunch, unless it is small and the large object has an atmosphere, in which case it will burn up, maybe explosively.

Message 2070299: With the clever trick of always missing! ;-)

Are you sure. Newton's laws of motion say without an outside influence bodies in motion will always travel in a straight line. So without gravity there would be no satellites, and they would not only miss, they would just depart further and further into the universe.

Both sides are at it. Companies are selling more than they can produce, and countries (notably ours) are buying more than they need. Lots of so called "contracts" are going to be argued over by lawyers for decades to come.

The UK has ordered more than it needs, but that assumes, to a certain extent, that they all work. Most of the orders were made before the trials started, probably as a measure to prevent the companies running out of funds, think Valneva. Lots of support from Macron there, for a French company I see, not.

BBC - Budget 2021: Covid deaths set to cut state pension costs
The amount the government has to spend on state pensions will fall by £1.5bn by 2022, partly because of over-65s dying of Covid, forecasts suggest.
The government will also receive an extra £0.9bn from inheritance tax, partly due to Covid-related deaths.
The figures have been published by the Office for Budget Responsibility (OBR) - the government's fiscal watchdog.
It said it had "revised up our assumption for excess deaths this year and next relative to November".
More than 144,000 deaths involving Covid-19 have occurred in the UK since the start of the pandemic, figures published by the UK's statistics agencies show.
The majority of coronavirus deaths have been among people aged over 65, many of whom will have been receiving the state pension.
...
"With virus-related deaths rising sharply again in recent months, we have revised up the number of excess pensioner-age deaths in 2020-21 from 90,000 in our November forecast to around 100,000 in this one," the OBR said in its Economic And Fiscal Outlook, which is published alongside the Budget.


That's 2/3rds of all UK covid deaths occurred in the over 65's.

If Transport is to go 100% electric, then at 2016 petroleum product usage we need 30 trillion kWh of energy to replace it. An increase of 20% over present day electricity production.

Even if plans are in place to increase electricity production rather than replace old dirty stations it takes more than 10 years to get approved, built, commissioned and connected up.

Now I am really worried. Joe has promised that the vaccines are 100% safe. NOTHING is 100% safe. If, by this time next year, there have been no major side effects from taking the vaccines I may decide to get vaccinated. Meanwhile I will just stay home 90% of the time like I have done for the last 10 years. Not one outbreak of the flu in my house in over 10 years.

Your choice, and I respect that, but IMHO it is the wrong one.

In the UK all reports have to be reported on a Yellow Card, The Yellow Card report, up to the14th Feb 2021 can be found at https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/coronavirus-covid-19-vaccine-adverse-reactions/coronavirus-vaccine-summary-of-yellow-card-reporting#yellow-card-reports, at that time 15 million does had been administered and
As of 14 February 2021, for the UK

26,823 Yellow Cards have been reported for the Pfizer/BioNTech
31,427 have been reported for the Oxford University/AstraZeneca vaccine
177 have been reported where the brand of the vaccine was not specified
The vast majority of these are for minor symptoms, which if they listened or read the leaflets, they would have known could occur.
there have been a small number of;
Events with a fatal outcome
The MHRA has received 197 UK reports of suspected ADRs to the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine in which the patient died shortly after vaccination, 205 reports for the Oxford University/AstraZeneca vaccine and 4 where the brand of vaccine was unspecified. The majority of these reports were in elderly people or people with underlying illness. Usage of the AstraZeneca has increased rapidly and as such, so has reporting of fatal events with a temporal association with vaccination however, this does not indicate a link between vaccination and the fatalities reported. Review of individual reports and patterns of reporting does not suggest the vaccine played a role in the death.


And so far, as of yesterday over 220 million doses have been administered. I am sure if there was a serious problem anywhere it would have been all over the media already.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has called it “vaccine nationalism”, but what it really is is vaccine capitalism. Countries are rushing to outbid each other on vaccines because there is an inadequate supply, and there is inadequate supply because pharmaceutical companies are allowed not to share their inventions with the world

Although parts of that para maybe true, there is evidence that shows it in some cases it is problems of production and a shortage of supplies that are the cause of this apparent inadequate supply.
https://globalnews.ca/news/7636798/pfizer-moderna-vaccine-ingredients/
https://www.pharmaceutical-technology.com/comment/covid-19-vaccine-manufacturing-disruptions/
And so far only about 100 million vaccinations have been administered only about 1.3% of the world population. If the vaccinations were spread equally around the world we wouldn't even notice and we would be in permanent lock-down until production rates can be increased beyond the 0.5%/month delivery rate we are now seeing.

If we were to deliver vaccines to the most vulnerable first, the over 80's, then the vaccines would still be very much as they are at the moment. Because in a lot of the world not many people reach that age, i.e. the average life expectancy in Africa is below 65. In Russia life expectancy is about 70.

I suggest you read the post you refer to carefully - stay within the bounds of honouring Rush's life and works, don't divert into other areas.
There is a lot in his life that can be explored, but keep to HIS politics. If you don't agree with HIS politics you are welcome to state that you don't agree with what he said, but DON'T dive into an opposing field, just state your opposition.

But we are always asking for people to justify there opinions and there we have to produce the evidence, in this case it is political.
It cannot be split. So if you want a non-political thread in cannot be on the "Politics" board.

I strongly suggest it is moved, or allow political statements or close it.

BBC - United Airlines grounds planes after engine failure
In response to the incident, Japan has asked all airlines using Boeing 777s with the same Pratt & Whitney 4000 engine to avoid its airspace.

Boeing said it supported Japan's decision and has recommended suspending operations of all 777s with the same engine while an investigation into the incident continues. The manufacturer says there are 69 Boeing 777s currently in service worldwide with this engine.

According to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), United is the only US airline flying such planes, with the others being in Japan and South Korea.
...
As stated in the link from Rob's previous.
"Based on the initial information, we concluded that the inspection interval should be stepped up for the hollow fan blades that are unique to this model of engine, used solely on Boeing 777 airplanes."

The FAA is meeting representatives from the engine firm and Boeing.

The National Transportation Safety Board's initial finding is that most of the damage occurred in the right engine, where two fan blades were fractured and other blades also impacted. The main body of the aeroplane suffered only minor damage.
...
In 2018, the right engine of a United Airlines plane broke shortly before it landed in Honolulu. Following an investigation, the National Transportation Safety Board said the incident was caused by a full-length fan blade fracture.

Is this woman for real? Covid-19: UK should send vaccines to poorer nations now - WTO chief

Does she know that most of the vaccines ordered either haven't been manufactures yet, or are from companies that haven't had their vaccines approved yet.
I'm told from a knowledgeable person in the NHS that the time from departure from the manufacturing plant to being injected in an arm can be less than 5 days.
And going by what has been reported in the press, those that think they might be in line for their 1st jab in April and onwards might be disappointed as most of the vaccines available will be required for 2nd jabs, in people like me. Extending the period between the 1st and 2nd jabs beyond 12 weeks is not up for discussion say the experts.

Texas governor’s biggest donors: Energy industry that failed
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — As frozen Texas reels under one of the worst electricity outages in U.S. history, Republican Gov. Greg Abbott has blamed grid operators and iced-over wind turbines but gone easier on another culprit: an oil and gas industry that is the state’s dominant business and his biggest political contributor.
Oil and gas built and enriched Texas, and with that its politicians, including those who became president. But none has reaped campaign contributions on the scale of Abbott, who in six years in office has raised more than $150 million from donors, more than any governor in U.S. history.

Texas’ energy interests are the biggest backers of his political rise, and he has not ruled out a White House run in 2024. More than $26 million of his contributions have come from the oil and gas industry, more than any other economic sector, according to an analysis by the National Institute on Money in Politics.
Girding power generators against fierce winter weather is essential in colder climates. In Iowa, where wind farms supply 40% of the state’s electricity, windmills have been turning all week despite temperatures that dropped to minus 17 degrees (minus 27 degrees Celsius) in Des Moines. In Texas, grid officials say they can’t speak for why power generators here don’t do the same.

A decade ago, the report on the last Texas failure listed a number of ways to winterize an oil well or a natural gas device and the estimated costs: installing a cold-weather production unit ($23,000), collecting gas vented from an injection pump to supply a heater ($675), or building a fiberglass hut to enclose the production equipment ($1,500).

Winterizing 50,000 wells — just under a third of the number of total natural gas wells active in Texas — was estimated in 2011 to cost as much as $1.75 billion, a figure that would almost certainly be higher today due to inflation. By comparison, the Texas oil and natural gas industry paid $13.9 billion in taxes and royalties last year alone, according to figures from the Texas Oil & Gas Association.

Scarcity of niche biotech ingredients hinder vaccine production
Acuitas, a tiny biotechnology firm in Vancouver, B.C., has just 30 employees and leases its labs from the University of British Columbia. The company doesn’t even have a sign on its building. Until last year, it outsourced production of only small volumes of lipid nanoparticles, fat droplets used to deliver RNA into cells, for research and a single approved treatment for a rare disease.

But now, one of Acuitas’s discoveries has become a precious commodity. A proprietary molecule called ionizable cationic lipid is a crucial piece of the mRNA vaccine made by Pfizer and its German partner BioNTech, and it is in urgent demand to produce billions of vaccine doses worldwide.

Scaling up production of formerly niche substances such as lipid nanoparticles for a global vaccine drive has been among the most complex challenges facing the Biden administration as it aims to ramp up the frustratingly slow provision of shots across the country, according to interviews with company officials and outside scientists and government reports.

On Jan. 21, the new president’s second day in office, the Biden administration issued a report that cited shortages of lipid nanoparticles among “urgent gaps” in the vaccine supply chain.

“It’s on a scale that hasn’t been done before,” said Pieter Cullis, the Canadian scientist and Acuitas chairman who is considered a godfather of lipid nanoparticle technology.

Manhattan D.A. Recruits Top Prosecutor To Go After Trump Family
As the Manhattan district attorney’s office steps up the criminal investigation of Donald J. Trump, it has reached outside its ranks to enlist a prominent former federal prosecutor to help scrutinize financial dealings at the former president’s company, according to several people with knowledge of the matter.

The former prosecutor, Mark F. Pomerantz, has deep experience investigating and defending white-collar and organized crime cases, bolstering the team under District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance Jr. that is examining Mr. Trump and his family business, the Trump Organization.

The investigation by Mr. Vance, a Democrat, is focused on possible tax and bank-related fraud, including whether the Trump Organization misled its lenders or local tax authorities about the value of his properties to obtain loans and tax benefits, the people with knowledge of the matter said, requesting anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the investigation. Mr. Trump has maintained he did nothing improper and has long railed against the inquiry, calling it a politically motivated “witch hunt.”

Yes, that is true, it was an extraordinary weather event.
(Unless you believe that this "normally expected weather", as one poster here opined in another thread.)

But the energy sources most affected were solar and wind power, both of which were practically useless.

What is "normally expected weather"?
Most of those that study exceptional events normally talk of "once in so many years" events and if similar events occur more than once every century then it is "normal" and should be planned for.
And as low temps have hit Texas in 1933, 1949 and 1989, then it is definitely not unexpected. And to make it worse this was forecasted over a week before it happened.

But the energy sources most affected were solar and wind power, both of which were practically useless.

From https://apnews.com/article/texas-power-outage-winter-energy-pride-c260c340f619688dd511cc6645b40a04
Republican Gov. Greg Abbott called for an investigation of the Electric Reliability Council of Texas, which operates the state’s power grid. His indignation struck a much different tone than just a day earlier, when he told Texans that ERCOT was prioritizing residential customers and that power was getting restored to hundreds of thousands of homes.

But hours after those assurances, the number of outages in Texas only rose, at one point exceeding 4 million customers.

“This is unacceptable,” Abbott said.

By late Tuesday afternoon, ERCOT officials said some power had been restored, but they warned that even those gains were fragile and more outages were possible.

The grid began preparing for the storm a week ahead of time, but it reached a breaking point early Monday as conditions worsened and knocked power plants offline, ERCOT president Bill Magness said. Some wind turbine generators were iced, but nearly twice as much power was wiped out at natural gas and coal plants. Forcing controlled outages was the only way to avert an even more dire blackout in Texas, Magness said.

“What we’re protecting against is worse,” he said.

Still, Magness said ERCOT could not offer a firm timetable for when power might be fully restored. The Federal Emergency Management Agency said Texas had requested 60 generators and that hospitals and nursing homes would get priority.


P.S. As this is about a Republican State that has f____ up, why is in in the Joe Biden thread?

The findings from the New and Emerging Respiratory Virus Threats Advisory Group (NERVTAG), published on Friday on the government’s website, underscored concerns about how mutations may change the characteristics of SARS-CoV2 – the virus that causes COVID-19 – and alter the course of the pandemic.

NERVTAG’s report was based on a dozen studies that found the so-called Kent variant, named after the county where it was first identified, is likely 30 percent to 70 percent more deadly than other versions of the novel coronavirus in circulation.

Those studies compared hospitalisation and death rates among people infected with the B.1.1.7 variant and those infected with other strains.

I think that the 70% number probably comes from the 30% more transmissible and 30% more deadly.
1.3 * 1.3 = 1.69

Another coronavirus variant with a potentially worrying set of mutations has been detected in the UK and should be targeted in surge testing, experts have said.

The variant, known as B1525, is the subject of a report by researchers at the University of Edinburgh, who say it has been detected through genome sequencing in 10 countries including Denmark, the US and Australia, with 32 cases found in the UK so far. The earliest sequences were dated to December and cropped up in the UK and Nigeria.

The reason your gas prices have risen is because OPEC has cut production and U.S. stocks are low.

Oil was set for a second straight weekly gain, as OPEC+ continued to slash output and the group expects a stronger second half of the year, which to Bloomberg indicates "that global inventories will face sharp declines unless the cartel boosts supply." Indeed, Iraq said OPEC+ is unlikely to change its output policy at a March meeting. Meanwhile, in the U.S., crude stockpiles are at the lowest in nearly a year.

Remembering a trip of 300 miles, 20+ years ago, on a bank holiday Monday,. I had to be ready for work at 8am following day. I started thinking how many rapid charging points would be needed at motorway service stations, so cars could be refueled for 200 miles in a short space of time, think coffee and toilet break.
The best info I came up with was https://inews.co.uk/news/electric-car-charging-uk-stations-motorway-service-chargers-ev-government-plans-428167 That definitely will not be enough.
And will the electricity infrastructure be in place to deliver the power demanded. IMHO probably not, even with massive storage batteries on-site.

The Lancet - Public policy and health in the Trump era
This report by the Lancet Commission on Public Policy and Health in the Trump Era assesses the repercussions of President Donald Trump's health-related policies and examines the failures and social schisms that enabled his election. Trump exploited low and middle-income white people's anger over their deteriorating life prospects to mobilise racial animus and xenophobia and enlist their support for policies that benefit high-income people and corporations and threaten health. His signature legislative achievement, a trillion-dollar tax cut for corporations and high-income individuals, opened a budget hole that he used to justify cutting food subsidies and health care. His appeals to racism, nativism, and religious bigotry have emboldened white nationalists and vigilantes, and encouraged police violence and, at the end of his term in office, insurrection. He chose judges for US courts who are dismissive of affirmative action and reproductive, labour, civil, and voting rights; ordered the mass detention of immigrants in hazardous conditions; and promulgated regulations that reduce access to abortion and contraception in the USA and globally. Although his effort to repeal the Affordable Care Act failed, he weakened its coverage and increased the number of uninsured people by 2·3 million, even before the mass dislocation of the COVID-19 pandemic, and has accelerated the privatisation of government health programmes. Trump's hostility to environmental regulations has already worsened pollution—resulting in more than 22?000 extra deaths in 2019 alone—hastened global warming, and despoiled national monuments and lands sacred to Native people. Disdain for science and cuts to global health programmes and public health agencies have impeded the response to the COVID-19 pandemic, causing tens of thousands of unnecessary deaths, and imperil advances against HIV and other diseases. And Trump's bellicose trade, defence, and foreign policies have led to economic disruption and threaten an upswing in armed conflict.


NYT article based on the above report;
Former President Donald Trump stands accused of inciting a riot that left at least five people dead and more than 100 police officers injured.

But according to a new report from The Lancet, a respected medical journal, that’s just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the harm that Trump did to public health during his time in office.

Released today, the 49-page report ticks off the health effects of Trump’s policies on everything from the environment to taxes to Covid-19. And the results aren’t pretty.

Soon after Trump took office in 2017, The Lancet established the Commission on Public Policy and Health in the Trump Era to study the health impact of his decisions in the White House. Over the past four years, the commission analyzed his policies as they took shape while seeking to place them in a broader historical context.

They found that Trump’s mismanagement of the coronavirus pandemic caused tens of thousands of deaths that might have been avoided if the country’s response had been more effectively coordinated.

“I think the huge number of deaths from Covid, compared to the other G7 wealthy nations, was striking,” said Steffie Woolhandler, a co-chairman of the committee and a distinguished professor at Hunter College in New York.

But even before the pandemic, the report found, Trump’s attempts to dismantle the Affordable Care Act had increased the number of uninsured Americans by two million to three million people.

His trillion-dollar tax cuts primarily benefited high-income Americans, while stripping the federal government of resources that it had used to pay for social-welfare programs.

“Even prior to the pandemic,” said Woolhandler, a physician, “the United States’ policies had so thoroughly failed to provide the conditions to protect health that 461,000 people who died in 2018 would have survived if our death rate were the same as other healthy nations.”

Yet she noted that many of the United States’ public health problems predated not only the pandemic, but also the Trump administration. In many cases, the authors wrote, the health decline under Trump was only a continuation of a broader trend — one that seems to have begun in the early 1980s.

“In 1980, life expectancy in the United States was the same as in all our developed nation counterparts — Germany, France, Japan,” said Kevin Grumbach, a member of the commission and a professor at the University of California, San Francisco. “Every year since 1980, the U.S. started falling farther and farther behind these other nations. So now we are three or four years behind the average life expectancy of these other nations.”

Grumbach, who is also a physician, said that over the same period, the cost of health care had risen far more quickly in the United States than in other nations — a trend that Trump contributed to. The report found that his administration increased the privatization of government health programs like Medicare, most likely leading to a rise in costs for consumers.

The report also concluded that by loosening scores of regulations, Trump caused environmental harm that led to the deaths of over 22,000 people in 2019 alone. That was significantly more than had died for similar reasons in 2016.

“That was very surprising, because it’s one area the United States has been improving on in recent decades,” Woolhandler said. “And Trump very quickly managed to reverse the progress.”

Will this benefit be needed for any extended period after the end of April?
BBC - Ending benefit lifeline risks health of millions, medics say
Failing to extend a £20 lockdown benefit boost will harm the health of millions of people for decades, leading health organisations have told Prime Minister Boris Johnson in a letter.

Introduced last year, the £20-a-week uplift is due to end in April.

Will it not be the case that the vast majority of the UK population will have had their first jab by the end of April and therefore the country should be able to return to "Normal" shortly after that.


The Maths.
UK population = ~66 million
20% are under 16, over 10 million have had 1st jab, nearly 4 million are immune because they have had covid-19.
Therefore 66,000,000 * 0.8 -14,00000 = ~39,000,000
And about 500,000 get jabbed daily, so in ~ 11 weeks everybody should have at least received their 1st jab and 3 weeks later be reasonably immune (~57% immune). About mid-May.
Herd immunity should have occurred before that.

Democrat wears jeans on Iowa House floor to protest lack of mask mandate
Iowa's Republican House Speaker Pat Grassley has repeatedly said this year that he can't require lawmakers to wear masks on the House floor. So one Democrat decided to find out how he would enforce the chamber's dress code.

Rep. Beth Wessel-Kroeschell, D-Ames, said she told her Democratic colleagues Sunday night that she would be wearing jeans on the House floor all week in violation of the dress code.

House rules adopted last month state that "no member of the general assembly or legislative employee or intern shall be admitted to the floor of the House if attired in jeans of any color without leave of the speaker." The jeans rule has been in place for several years, dating back to before Grassley was speaker.
...
"At the end of the day if a legislator, male or female, wants to walk in here in their bathing suit and take a vote on the House floor they will be given that opportunity to do so. If a member wants to be recognized using proper decorum, from the chair’s perspective, I will not be recognizing those members," he said at the time.

No worries, it's just a local planning matter.

The question is "Does the UK and Europe want to continue producing steel?"
If so "Does it want to use locally produced coking coal or import the coal from some distant shore, with the additional pollution of transporting it?"
Or do we totally export the pollution to other countries and import the steel and subsequently, rather hypocritically, congratulate ourselves on how wonderfully free at reducing our carbon footprint

So it would appear that French President Emmanuel Macron has not only failed in his response to Covid-19 see; https://setiathome.berkeley.edu/forum_thread.php?id=85636&postid=2067497#2067497 he has also failed to honour his climate commitments.
Court convicts French state for failure to address climate crisis
A Paris court has convicted the French state of failing to address the climate crisis and not keeping its promises to tackle greenhouse gas emissions.

In what has been hailed as a historic ruling, the court found the state guilty of “non-respect of its engagements” aimed at combating global warming.

Billed the “affair of the century”, the legal case was brought by four French environmental groups after a petition signed by 2.3 million people.

“This is an historic win for climate justice. The decision not only takes into consideration what scientists say and what people want from French public policies, but it should also inspire people all over the world to hold their governments accountable for climate change in their courts,” said Jean-François Julliard, the executive director of Greenpeace France, one of the plaintiffs.

He said the judgment would be used to push the French state to act against the climate emergency. “No more blah blah,” he added.

How did the UK become French vaccine firm's best customer?
The French media is asking questions about why a French pharma firm has promised 100 million doses of its in-development Covid vaccine to the UK, when not a single order has yet been placed by France or the EU.

The Franco-Austrian Valneva - based near Nantes - has had substantial UK government financial aid of £14m to scale up its production site at Livingston in Scotland.

It also had UK help to roll out phase one and two trials of its viral vector vaccine. Results of these are due in the coming weeks and it’s hoped production could start in late summer.

Valneva director general Franck Grimaud said on BFMTV: "When we announced that we were developing our vaccine last April, we contacted several governments and institutions. It was the UK which was the first to give a comprehensive response, and we signed a pre-accord with them in July."

"It’s a failure for France. It hurts to see this beautiful business taking off for the UK," says Christelle Morancais, president of the Pays de la Loire region, who says she alerted the French government last June. "This company had solutions. [French President Emmanuel] Macron says we are at war - well in war you need different methods from our bureaucratic, technocratic form-filling."

Les Echos financial daily says: "Why has the French government not expressed interest in the Valneva project, leaving it to the British government to offer financial support and - logically therefore - reap the benefits a privileged partner?"

Darwen road crossing gets an ultra violet glow
A NEW colourful pedestrian crossing featuring nightclub-style ultra violet lighting has been installed on a town;s main road.

The Zebra crossing on Bolton Road in Darwen is aimed at improving road safety by illuminating those using it in the dark as well as the road markings.

The idea came to Blackburn with Darwen Council’s Network Management team while undertaking evening inspections last year.

They observed how ultra violet (UV) lights outside a nightclub lit up the clothing of those gathered at the venue.

Working with local supplier Uni-play they designed a crossing that would react well to UV lights, making it safer for all road users.

The Perfect Target - ex-KGB spy
Russia cultivated Trump as asset for 40 years

The ex-major recalled: “For the KGB, it was a charm offensive. They had collected a lot of information on his personality so they knew who he was personally. The feeling was that he was extremely vulnerable intellectually, and psychologically, and he was prone to flattery.

“This is what they exploited. They played the game as if they were immensely impressed by his personality and believed this is the guy who should be the president of the United States one day: it is people like him who could change the world. They fed him these so-called active measures soundbites and it happened. So it was a big achievement for the KGB active measures at the time.”

In comparison to an F1 circuit a tennis court is small, probably more like very small, yet they are going to allow crowds at 50% of the normal size.

Virus variant from South Africa detected in US for 1st time
COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — A new variant of the coronavirus emerged Thursday in the United States, posing yet another public health challenge in a country already losing more than 3,000 people to COVID-19 every day.

The mutated version of the virus, first identified in South Africa, was found in two cases in South Carolina. Public health officials said it’s almost certain that there are more infections that have not been identified yet. They are also concerned that this version spreads more easily and that vaccines could be less effective against it.

The two cases were discovered in adults in different regions of the state and do not appear to be connected. Neither of the people infected has traveled recently, the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control said Thursday.

“That’s frightening,” because it means there could be more undetected cases within the state, said Dr. Krutika Kuppalli, an infectious diseases physician at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston. “It’s probably more widespread.”

Republican Voter Fraud?
Trump supporter charged in 2016 Twitter scheme to undermine Hillary Clinton

NEW YORK — A far-right social media influencer was arrested Wednesday and accused of interfering in the 2016 election through an organized campaign to boost Donald Trump's candidacy by conning supporters of his opponent, Democrat Hillary Clinton, into voting through illegitimate means such as text message or online.

Prosecutors allege that Douglass Mackey, 31, used an alias, reportedly derived from actor Charlie Sheen’s character Ricky Vaughn in the 1989 film “Major League,” to circulate messages on Twitter that encouraged Clinton’s supporters to “Avoid the line. Vote from home,” according to charging documents. Nearly 5,000 people fell for the ploy, according to the Brooklyn U.S. attorney’s office, which announced the arrest.

Subway’s tuna is not tuna, but a ‘mixture of various concoctions,’ a lawsuit alleges
By Tim Carman
The Washington Post

Subway describes its tuna sandwich as “freshly baked bread” layered with “flaked tuna blended with creamy mayo then topped with your choice of crisp, fresh veggies.” It’s a description designed to activate the saliva glands — and separate you from your money.

It’s also fiction, at least partially, according to a recent lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California. The complaint alleges the ingredient billed as “tuna” for the chain’s sandwiches and wraps contains absolutely no tuna.

There is no doubt that the number of Covid-19 deaths in the UK is bad, but we cannot be sure that other countries are any better. Nearly every country uses a different method of defining what a Covid-19 death is and what isn't, and that goes even further as in the US as each state uses their own method.

Also the number of deaths, which are mainly in the older age brackets, so far, will also have an effect on the totals as those with a large population of old people will look to have many more deaths than those countries were the average age of the population is low. The average age of life expectation in all African countries is below 65.
In total, there have been 94,971 deaths involving COVID-19 registered in England and Wales since the start of the pandemic (up to 15 January 2021). Around 75% of these have occurred among people aged 75 years and over.

Merck discontinues two Covid-19 vaccine candidates
Pharmaceutical giant Merck* said Monday that it was discontinuing the development of its two Covid-19 vaccine candidates after early clinical trial data showed an "inferior" immune response.

Merck said in a statement posted on its website the decision to scrap the two vaccine candidates followed its review of findings from Phase 1 clinical studies. The studies showed that both candidates were generally well tolerated, but the immune responses were inferior to those seen following natural infection with Covid-19 and those reported for other Covid-19 vaccines.

I am a supporter of conservative views, and Trump has done that.

The main conservative policies were "A Balanced Budget" and "Free Trade Agreements". Could you show me where Trump maintained those principles.

All I saw was the tearing up of agreements and budgets designed to increase the wealth of the wealthy. The little man would have to survive as best he could by paying increased prices for most goods and little chance of an increase in his take home pay, and decreased social security.

And where was that "Incredible Health Care Plan".

All of a sudden he's the man in the chair and now he says "There's nothing we can do."

Why are you surprised.
For the last year Trump was the person responsible and in my opinion and lots of others he abdicated his responsibility.
He didn't put in place any federal rules and guidelines, he failed to check there was enough or order PPE and medical equipment.
Virus tracking and sequencing were virtually non-existent, such that the US has no idea which variants are doing the rounds.
He ignored and belittled the people with the knowledge, and even suggest people take bleach, just look at the difference in tone from Dr. Fauci now, to what it was a few months ago. Fox News - What a difference a day makes with Dr Fauci comeback
Trump failed to take up an offer of a second batch of vaccines, so they were sold abroad.

So now Biden has got to make up these deficiencies that the Trump regime made and that cannot be done in a day. It is going to take months, and if you don't like it. Then there is only one person to blame and his name is TRUMP.

Something much older than the U.S. Constitution & something the U.S. should really take note of.
Magna Carta
The first Magna Carta was originally drawn up in 1215. However, it was quickly declared null and void by the Pope on the grounds it interfered with the authority of the King, and a civil war broke out in England. Following this it was then reissued in various forms over the following years, resulting in yet another version issued in 1225. It is this version that forms the basis of our common law today.
The contents of Magna Carta were placed on the statute book in 1297. In the centuries since however, much of this has been repealed.

From all discussions on these boards debating the U.S. Constitution, I cannot recall anybody that called for its abolition, just updating,
As for mentioning historic English, I really have to laugh as both British & American English use the same terms that are not English & still in use today.
Eamples
cum laude
magna cum laude
summa cum laude
per diem
carpe diem

Why is that?

They do, part of the "sealing site" specifically the JFK Memorial at Runnymede is US Territory. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Runnymede#John_F._Kennedy_Memorial

There is one of the 1297 copies in the US National Archives.

The Fifth Amendment to the Constitution ("no person shall . . . be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law.") is a direct descendent of Magna Carta's guarantee of proceedings according to the "law of the land."

Washington Post reports that "Lawmakers who objected to election results have been cut off from 20 of their 30 biggest corporate PAC donors"
Jan. 19, 2021 at 3:08 p.m. GMT
The 147 Republican lawmakers who opposed certification of the presidential election this month have lost the support of many of their largest corporate backers — but not all of them.

The Washington Post contacted the 30 companies that gave the most money to election-objecting lawmakers’ campaigns through political action committees. Two-thirds, or 20 of the firms, said they have pledged to suspend some or all payments from their PACs.

Meanwhile, nine companies said only that they would review their political giving or did not commit to take any action as a result of this month’s events. One other top donor did not respond to multiple requests for comment.

Boeing 737 Max could fly in Europe this summer after EU approval
European safety agency follows US and Brazil in saying it will allow aircraft to return

Patrick Ky, the executive director of the European Union Aviation Safety Agency, said on Tuesday it would publish an updated airworthiness directive next week, following in the footsteps of regulators in the US and Brazil.
The 737 Max will be able to return to service as soon as Boeing has updated software and rewired some components, and airlines have trained their pilots in the changes. Ky said the version of the 737 Max bought by Irish airline Ryanair will be certified “in the coming weeks”, meaning it will probably be ready for service by summer.

Warning for the far right Trump supporters. Parler website partially returns with support from Russian-owned technology firm
Parler, the social network popular with Donald Trump supporters, has partially returned online with the help of a Russian-owned technology company.

The network vanished from the internet after it was dropped by Amazon’s hosting arm and other partners over a lack of moderation after its users called for violence and posted videos glorifying the attack on the US Capitol on 6 January.

On Monday, Parler’s website was reachable again, though only with a message from its chief executive, John Matze, saying he was working to restore functionality.

The internet protocol (IP) address it used is owned by DDos-Guard, which is controlled by two Russian men and provides services including protection from distributed denial of service attacks, infrastructure expert Ronald Guilmette told Reuters.

Putin will no doubt be able to read your plans at will, and insert his own spin into the plans.

Did Trump ever say when America was great in the past?
Did he ever say why he considered why America was great in the past?
Did he ever say why it was great in the past?

No, and I'll tell you why, because it would then have to acknowledge the people that made it great. The engineer's and the scientists a group of people he was more likely to throw out of a job He might have heard them but he never listened to what they were saying, probably because he hadn't got the education to do so.

Report: Anti-Vaccine Groups Collected Federal Covid Relief Funds
Several groups that have misleadingly questioned the safety of Covid-19 vaccines earned over $850,000 in federal coronavirus relief funding last year, the Washington Post reported Monday, leading some critics to question why organizations that could erode public health efforts qualified for large government-backed Paycheck Protection Program loans.

Key Facts

In total, five groups that have espoused anti-vaccine views received PPP loans, according to data from the Center for Countering Digital Hate published by the Post.

Two of these groups earned over $150,000, per federal data: Mercola, an organization whose website suggests (despite ample evidence to the contrary) Covid-19 vaccines are unsafe and face masks are ineffective, and the Informed Consent Action Network, which has published whitepapers falsely linking other common vaccines to autism.

Three other groups received less than $150,000: Children’s Health Defense, the National Vaccine Information Center and the Tenpenny Integrative Medical Center.

These groups likely didn’t run afoul of any federal rules by applying for PPP funds because the program’s qualifications are fairly broad, the Small Business Administration told the Post (the SBA did not respond to a request for comment from Forbes).

Children’s Health Defense founder Robert F. Kennedy Jr. told Forbes his organization qualified for a loan under federal law, and National Vaccine Information Center co-founder Barbara Loe Fisher said she used PPP to fund employees’ salaries; Kennedy and Fisher rejected the notion that their groups are anti-vaccine (both groups have published articles online insinuating that many common vaccines can be risky).

The other three groups that received funds did not respond to requests for comment.

I've often stated that a well run country will have a superb logistic infrastructure & still believe that.
However, I believe they have got it totally wrong about prioritising the elderly for the vaccines.
Sorry, I disagree. Here's why...
Vaccinate ALL essential workers 1st
...otherwise...

I think the argument goes
1. Vaccinate the most vulnerable and the number of serious cases will drop significantly, therefore the medics will not be put under stress.
2. Or vaccinate the medics and then they can handle the increase in cases without risk of catching it themselves.

Option 2. Does not take into account the stress on the mental health of the medics. Covid-19: 'One medic saw eight people die in a single shift'

7 Hurt After NYC Tandem Bus Veers Off Road, Leaving Front Half Dangling Off Overpass
At least 7 people were injured after a New York City accordion-style bus veered off the road and half of it dangled off an overpass.

A police spokesperson says the BX-35 bus driver was "unable to navigate the roadway and went off the road" near the Cross Bronx Expressway and University Avenue around 11 p.m. Thursday. No other vehicles were involved in the incident and no arrests have been made.

Six of the injured were bus passengers and the other was the driver and they were transported to the hospital with minor injuries, according to police and MTA spokesperson Tim Minton.

The FDNY later said there were nine people injured in total. It's unclear if the other two are also passengers.

https://www.ealingtimes.co.uk/news/19008935.cladding-scandal-london-assembly-report-reveals-extent/
The extent of London’s cladding crisis has been laid bare by a report from the London Assembly, with both the Mayor of London and the Government urged to act.
More than three years on from the Grenfell Tower fire, around two thirds of private residential buildings in London identified as high-risk have still not had cladding removed.
...
The London Fire Brigade identified 590 high-risk buildings that require temporary measures until work is completed such as waking watches or common fire alarms, which the fire brigade must check on fortnightly.

I don't think this will happen, do you?
The Government has been urged by the Housing, Communities and Local Government select committee to complete all remediation work nationally by the time of the fifth anniversary of the Grenfell Tower fire in June 2022.

Reading several news media sources, I get the feeling that the Senate GOP members lead by Mitch McConnell ,are willing to impeach Trump.

Mitch's reasoning includes the thoughts that "He would be "pleased" if Mr Trump was impeached because it would help to "purge" him from the Republican party." and stop Trump running as a Republican in 2024.

And where Mitch leads the moderate Republicans will follow.

And is DC controlled by the Dems?
It is not a state and therefore the National Guard in DC is controlled by the Federal Government and that would be the President.
I cannot see him calling out the National Guard to control his own flag waving supporters, until it had gone beyond acceptable levels.
Can you?

Two more life-saving Covid drugs discovered
Two more life-saving drugs have been found that can cut deaths by a quarter in patients who are sickest with Covid.
The anti-inflammatory medications, given via a drip, save an extra life for every 12 treated, say researchers who have carried out a trial in NHS intensive care units.
...
As well as saving more lives, the treatments speed up patients' recovery and reduce the length of time that critically-ill patients need to spend in intensive care by about a week.
Both appear to work equally well and add to the benefit already found with a cheap steroid drug called dexamethasone.
Although the drugs are not cheap, costing around £750 to £1,000 per patient, on top of the £5 course of dexamethasone, the advantage of using them is clear - and less than the cost per day of an intensive care bed of around £2,000, say experts.
...
In the REMAP-CAP trial carried out in six different countries, including the UK, with around 800 intensive care patients:

Nearly 36% of intensive care Covid patients receiving standard care died
The new drugs reduced that by a quarter, to 27%, when given to patients within 24 hours of them entering intensive care

I wonder if old Donny is getting any sleep tonight (that should be last night I guess) after his monumental screw up yesterday (well it was today here).

Well he can't Tweet or go on Facebook, so he should have few distractions.

Meanwhile Pence has confirmed Biden's victory. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/live/election-us-2020-55558355 at 08:38
08:43 Congress has certified Joe Biden and Kamala Harris as the next president and vice-president of the US.

The electoral votes were approved after both the Senate and the House of Representatives rejected objections to the votes in the states of Pennsylvania and Arizona.

The normally procedural session of Congress was disrupted on Wednesday when supporters of President Trump stormed the Capitol building. The session resumed and continued through the night after the building was cleared.

Trump releases statement committing to "orderly transition"President Trump has just released a statement committing to "an orderly transition on January 20th" but repeating his unsubstantiated claims of electoral fraud.

“Even though I totally disagree with the outcome of the election, and the facts bear me out, nevertheless there will be an orderly transition on January 20th," he said, in a comment published on his spokesperson's Twitter account. Twitter has temporarily blocked the president from using his own account.

"I have always said we would continue our fight to ensure that only legal votes were counted. While this represents the end of the greatest first term in presidential history, it’s only the beginning of our fight to Make America Great Again!" he added.

More than 60 legal cases by Trump's campaign team challenging the November result have failed.

Looks like that assault on Congress has had the desired effect. The House has followed the Senate in voting against the challenge to Joe's win.

And apparently Pence has reneged and said “Violence never wins. Freedom wins. And this is still the people’s house.”

There is a problem in the US if the new strain has got a foothold over there, and it probably has.
The UK spotted it because has sequenced 209,038 coronavirus genomes so far, nearly two-thirds of all those sequenced in the world.
The US with a population five times larger has sequenced 58,560 genomes so far.

The new strain is about 50% more spreadable than all the previous strains.

Georgia Republican facing Senate runoff bought significant shares in US bank after meeting with financial policy makers

David Perdue, the Georgia Republican facing a Senate runoff election on Tuesday, has twice bought a significant number of shares in a US bank shortly after meeting with financial policy makers, raising more questions about his prolific stock trading while in office.

In one case, in May 2015, Perdue bought between $15,000 and $50,000 worth of shares in Regions Financial Corporation two days after a 10-minute phone call with then treasury secretary Jack Lew.

Perdue bought additional shares in the bank two years later, on 18 May 2017, two days after a half-hour meeting with then Federal Reserve chair Janet Yellen.

Trump's Scottish golf courses post another year of losses
Businesses lose total of £3.4m in 2019 despite first signs of profitability at his flagship Turnberry resort

Donald Trump’s Scottish golf courses have again reported significant losses, totalling £3.4m, despite the first signs of profitability at his flagship Turnberry resort.

The annual accounts for Trump Turnberry’s parent company, Golf Recreation Scotland, show the luxury hotel and golf resort in Ayrshire lost £2.3m in 2019 after ploughing more money into upgrading its facilities.

It emerged last week that Trump’s first Scottish course, at Menie north of Aberdeen, lost another £1.1m in 2019 and again required loans of nearly £1.2m from Trump’s family trust to keep it running.

Despite its headline losses, Turnberry reported its first operating profit under Trump’s ownership, of £321,000, and also began paying off £115m in outstanding loans from the US president for the first time.

Despite reducing its debt to Trump by nearly £1.6m in 2019, the accounts for both businesses put their total debts to him at just under £158m.

BBC reports that there is a revised count of the Russian deaths total. up significantly from 55,827 to 186,057.
https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/live/world-55473196 at 10:00
Russia admits its death toll is three times higher

More than 80% of the excess deaths in Russia this year are linked to the coronavirus pandemic, Deputy Prime Minister Tatiana Golikova has said.

According to the Rosstat statistics agency, there were almost 230,000 additional deaths between January and November this year compared to 2019 - which would give Russia a total coronavirus death toll of more than 186,000.

The revised total is more than three times higher than the estimated 55,000 fatalities previously acknowledged by Russian authorities.

Only two other countries - the US and Brazil - have reported a higher number of deaths in the pandemic.

Russia has developed its own vaccine, the Sputnik V, which it has already begun rolling out.
and 10:55
As we reported earlier, new statistics from Russia show a dramatically higher number of deaths from Covid-19 than previously thought. Here's how its death toll compares to other countries:

USA - 334,963 deaths
Brazil - 191,570
Russia - 186,057
India - 148,153
Mexico - 122,855
Italy - 72,370
UK - 71,217
France - 63,235
Iran - 54,813
Spain - 50,122

Note: Totals for all countries except Russia based on data from Johns Hopkins University. Russia's numbers are based on excess death figures from statistics agency Rosstat and statements by Russia's deputy minister. Different countries use different measurements for what counts as a "Covid death".

As Robertson has also found out that god is also a liar.
"I had prayed and hoped that there might be some better solution, but I think it's all over," said Robertson, who previously said he was told by God that Trump would win the 2020 election.

Isn't it time for him to tell god to move on, or move on himself.

On a follow up to my last, it would seem that the UK is being punished for telling the World about the mutation, which is exactly what the World demanded after it looks like China suppressed all information for at least 6 weeks.

It looks like this UK mutation is a variation of mutation N501Y, which was first detected in Brazil last April which is already in Australia and the US.
It was South Africa that informed the UK scientists to look at N501Y as the rapid spike there has been caused by variation N501.V2 and the UK version is another variation with 23 separate mutations from the original strain. Besides being found in Australia it has already been detected in several European countries.

It will spread further no doubt.

More on the alleged election fraud claims Lou Dobbs debunks his own claims of election fraud — after a legal demand from Smartmatic (repeated by the Seattle times fm WaPo)
By Jeremy Barr
The Washington Post

Something surprising happened Friday night on Lou Dobbs’ top-rated show on the Fox Business Network.

Dobbs, an opinion host and conservative ally of President Donald Trump who has consistently raged over the past month that the president was robbed of a second term by a rigged election, instead introduced a segment that calmly debunked several accusations of fraud that Rudolph Giuliani and other of the president’s supporters have lobbed against one election technology company, Smartmatic.

“There are lot of opinions about the integrity of the election, the irregularities of mail-in voting, of election voting machines, and voting software,” Dobbs told his viewers, before introducing Edward Perez, an expert with the nonprofit Open Source Election Technology Institute, to give “his assessment of Smartmatic and recent claims about the company.”

Perez then appeared in an apparently pretaped segment, where he shot down various conspiratorial theories in response to questions from an off-camera, unidentified voice — not Dobbs’s.

Potatoes were the star of North Korean food propaganda in the 1990s when the country faced a severe famine. As the economic situation improved, the humble spud retreated from North Korean media.

The root vegetable is now making a comeback. State media has prominently featured the potato in movies, news reports and culinary shows.

Parents lose lawsuit over destruction of son’s porn stash
GRAND HAVEN, Mich. (AP) — A man who sued his parents for getting rid of his pornography collection has won a lawsuit in western Michigan and can seek compensation.

U.S. District Judge Paul Maloney ruled in favor of David Werking, who said his parents had no right to throw out his collection. He lived at their Grand Haven home for 10 months after a divorce before moving to Muncie, Indiana.

Werking said boxes of films and magazines worth an estimated $29,000 were missing.

“There is no question that the destroyed property was David’s property,” Maloney said Monday. “Defendants repeatedly admitted that they destroyed the property.”

https://www.gov.uk/government/news/army-develops-spray-to-kill-coronavirus
A novel disinfectant spray developed by the Army that can eliminate 99.99% of the Covid-19 virus will now be made available to the public and used by military personnel on the frontline as they support the battle against the virus.
The British Army has pioneered a Covid disinfectant spray which has proved so successful it will be sold to the general public.

The Virusend disinfectant formula has been found to kill all coronavirus strains in less than a minute and was proven to kill SARS-CoV-2 in 99.99 per cent of cases.

Now more than 50,000 bottles of the handheld Virusend disinfectant are being deployed to military personnel across the country who are working alongside the NHS at coronavirus testing stations as part of the military's ongoing support to civil authorities.

It is already being used at testing sites in Medway and Preston and can be purchased online for £7.99.

It uses compressed air instead of VOC flammable gasses and is fully recyclable and fully re-useable.

It produces a much higher density spray than anything currently on the market and allows the holder to use the bottle in any direction, even if it is upside down.


It can be purchased from https://virusend.co.uk/ , but at the moment I am timed out, so I guess they might be having a lot of traffic after the story was released in the Telegraph about 5 hours ago.

Ex-Houston officer accused of assault in bogus fraud claim
HOUSTON (AP) — A former Houston police captain was charged with assault on Tuesday after running a man off the road and holding him at gunpoint in an effort to prove what authorities have called a bogus voter fraud scheme.

Mark Aguirre claimed that an air conditioner repairman was the mastermind of a giant voter fraud scheme. Aguirre said the man’s truck was filled with fraudulent ballots when he ran his SUV into it on Oct. 19, according to authorities.
...
Police who responded to the incident searched the truck and found only air conditioning parts and tools, authorities said. Authorities did not name the truckdriver, who was not hurt.
“A lengthy investigation ... determined allegations of election fraud were unfounded and no evidence of illegal ballots was found,” Houston police said.
Aguirre told a police officer at the scene, “I just hope you’re a patriot,” according to the affidavit.

The other fad of everything has to be battery powered is also a bad move.

Why when most of the time when inside you have a perfectly good, always the same source of energy in the wall plug. Batteries loose there capacity from day one. That vacuum cleaner that works for 40 minutes when new, will struggle to work for 20 minutes in a few years time even if the batteries are charged correctly.
And when the battery does fail any you think, lets change the battery. Can you open the device and change it or does it need specialist tools, is a suitable battery available, in a lot of cases it will be a discontinued model and batteries if still around will be almost a expensive as a new model with twice the battery power.

Of course mobile devices need to be powered by battery, but devices that never leave the home??

Records show that Merritt is an Army veteran and that he enrolled in a training program at the 305th Military Intelligence Battalion, the unit he cites in his declaration. But he never completed the entry-level training course, according to Meredith Mingledorff, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Army Intelligence Center of Excellence, which includes the battalion.

“He kept washing out of courses,” said Mingledorff, citing his education records. “He’s not an intelligence analyst.”

In late November, Thomas McInerney, a retired lieutenant general in the Air Force and a proponent of election fraud claims, said that President Trump and Powell have “got the 305th Military Intelligence Battalion working with them” and that “the Kraken is the 305th Military Intelligence Battalion.”
The battalion is an entry-level training unit.

Merritt show that he enlisted in 2003. He first aimed to be a medic, but did not graduate from a training program at Fort Sam Houston in Texas

Merritt was honorably discharged from the Army in 2013, after a decade of service, including deployments to the wars in Iraq in 2005-2006 and Afghanistan in 2009-2010, according to his separation papers. His commendations included the Combat Action Badge, which is authorized for soldiers who are “present and actively engaging or being engaged by the enemy, and performing satisfactorily in accordance with prescribed rules of engagement.”

Merritt told The Post he left the military because he had had reached a “retention control point” and was unlikely to be promoted. Under Army rules, soldiers are only permitted to serve a certain number of years at a particular rank.


Looks like this Merritt guy, was a military failure, only got "I was there medals" for his foreign service, and discharged because he failed to be promoted to Corporal in 10 years.

BBC - Covid-19 vaccine: Allergy warning over new jab
People with a history of significant allergic reactions should not have the Pfizer/BioNTech Covid jab, regulators say.

It came after two NHS workers had allergic reactions on Tuesday.

The advice applies to those who have had reactions to medicines, food or vaccines, the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency said.

The two people had a reaction shortly after having the new jab, had treatment and are both fine now.

They are understood to have had an anaphylactoid reaction, which tends to involve a skin rash, breathlessness and sometimes a drop in blood pressure. This is not the same as anaphylaxis which can be fatal.

Both NHS workers have a history of serious allergies and carry adrenaline pens around with them.

R.I.P.

Under the definition of the Right Stuff, Chuck Yeager.

Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of earth,
And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;
Sunward I've climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth
Of sun-split clouds, --and done a hundred things
You have not dreamed of --Wheeled and soared and swung
High in the sunlit silence. Hov'ring there
I've chased the shouting wind along, and flung
My eager craft through footless halls of air...
Up, up the long, delirious, burning blue
I've topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace
Where never lark or even eagle flew --
And, while with silent lifting mind I've trod
The high untrespassed sanctity of space,
Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.


High Flight by Pilot Officer John Gillespie Magee, Jr. an American pilot with the RCAF, died on 11 December 1941 during a training flight from the airfield near Scopwick, Lincolnshire.

The Washington Post says that the changes to Act 77 to allow mail-in votes was made by the Republican controlled legislature, and that any challenges to this should have been made before the count not after.

I'm not certain I follow the logic here.

it would seem to me that the Republicans
Changed the rules for mail-in voting.
Some of those self same Republican politicians told their constituents to use the mail-in system.
Organised and supervised the election in Pennsylvania and the counting of the votes, with the count of the mail-in and absentee votes to be done after the day of the election and definitely not before.

And then claim that all this was illegal.

Trump administration must accept new DACA applications, judge orders
(CNN)The Trump administration must post a public notice that it will accept new applications for the Obama-era program shielding undocumented immigrants who came to the US as children from deportation, a federal judge ordered Friday.
Judge Nicholas Garaufis' latest order builds on his November ruling where he found that Chad Wolf was not legally serving as acting Homeland Security secretary when he signed rules limiting applications and renewals for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

“DHS is DIRECTED to post a public notice, within 3 calendar days of this Order, to be displayed prominently on its website and on the websites of all other relevant agencies, that it is accepting first-time requests for consideration of deferred action under DACA, renewal requests, and advance parole requests, based on the terms of the DACA program prior to September 5, 2017, and in accordance with this court’s Memorandum & Order of November 14, 2020,” Garaufis wrote.

Garaufis also again slammed Wolf’s appointment, which has repeatedly come under scrutiny.

The Department of Homeland Security tried to self-correct its line of succession by having Pete Gaynor, who is the Senate-confirmed Federal Emergency Management Agency administrator, temporarily exercise the authority of Homeland Security secretary to try to alleviate concerns over Wolf’s legitimacy as acting chief of the department.

“Neither Administrator Gaynor nor Mr. Wolf currently possesses, nor have they ever possessed, the powers of the Acting Secretary of Homeland Security,” Garaufis wrote in a footnote.

Garaufis ordered that Wolf’s memo detailing new DACA rules be vacated.

I don't think the people suggesting that Trump pardon himself, family members and friends know what they are talking about. Because a crime must have been committed for it to be pardoned.

So if he does issue pardons, then those people are guilty of the crimes they were pardoned for.

Boeing's upgraded 737 MAX completes first flight with media onboard
DALLAS (Reuters) - Boeing Co’s 737 MAX staged its first post-grounding flight with media on board on Wednesday, as carriers seek to demonstrate to passengers that the redesigned jet is safe after a 20-month safety ban.

In another display of confidence, European budget airline Ryanair was set to place a hefty order for up to 75 additional 737 MAX jets, industry sources said.

Wednesday’s American Airlines 737 MAX flight was a 45-minute hop from Dallas, Texas, to Tulsa, Oklahoma. It comes weeks before the first commercial passenger flight on Dec. 29, and is part of a public relations effort to allay any concerns about the aircraft.

Breaking on Washington Post Justice Dept. investigated potential ‘bribery-for-pardon’ scheme involving Trump White House in August
The Justice Department this summer and fall investigated a potential “bribery-for-pardon” scheme in which a large political contribution would be offered in exchange for a presidential pardon by the Trump White House, according to court records unsealed Tuesday.

The documents show that U.S. prosecutors were scrutinizing whether two individuals approached senior Trump White House officials as unregistered lobbyists, and a related scheme in which cash would be funneled through intermediaries for a pardon or reprieve of a sentence for a defendant apparently in U.S. Bureau of Prisons custody at some point. The status of the investigation is unclear.

This story will be updated

According to WaPo the scam I reported in post 2061210 has raised $150 million, mainly in small donations for the Official Election Defense Fund. But there is no such fund.
According to the fine print in the latest fundraising appeals, 75 percent* of each contribution to the joint fundraising committee would first go toward the Save America leadership PAC and the rest would be shared with the party committee, to help with the party’s operating expenses. This effectively means that the vast majority of low-dollar donations under the current agreement would go toward financing the president’s new leadership PAC, instead of efforts to support the party or to finance voting lawsuits.

* it was 60% in the original story.

Yep, no matter how hard he tries he just keeps on losing, but the big shame is that the 3 million was supplied by others to continue his losing efforts (nothing came out of his pocket).

The sad part of that is that his supporters believe him and that the election has been stolen and are therefore quite happy to supply the funds for these court cases and recounts.

You do have to consider whether the 1st, with its 'freedom of speech' and where it is acceptable to lie to deceive the masses and not face any consequences, is a viable option for democracy.

President Trump pardons Michael Flynn

President Donald Trump said he issued a pardon Wednesday to former national security adviser Michael Flynn, ending a three-year legal odyssey for the retired Army general who pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about his contacts with a Russian ambassador prior to Trump's inauguration.

The president's action, coming in the final weeks of his administration, once again highlighted the long shadow cast by the investigation into Russia's interference in the 2016 election, which resulted in the prosecution of six former aides to the president.

The only question we had about this news was 'when not if'

Independent - NRA accuses its own executives of using funds to enrich themselves in new tax filing
The National Rifle Association, a non-profit gun advocacy group, accused its executives of improperly using the organization’s funds for personal enrichment, according to a tax return obtained by the Washington Post.

Six top officials, including chief executive Wayne LaPierre, used NRA funds for “excessive benefits,” according to the 2019 document, which also says the allegations are still under review.

Earlier this year, the attorney general of New York filed a lawsuit accusing NRA leadership of wide-ranging financial misconduct and called for dissolving the group.

The tax document says that in 2019 the NRA became aware of “a significant diversion of its assets.” It reportedly says various executives “improperly” used NRA funds, charged expenses that were “not appropriate," and flew first class without authorization.

"The NRA is committed to strict compliance with its accounting controls and good-governance practices,” Charles Cotton, an NRA vice president, told the Post.

The filing also says Mr LaPierre, who has led the group for nearly four decades, “corrected” his financial irregularities and reimbursed the NRA nearly $300,00 between 2015 and 2019.

Army Corps of Engineers denies Pebble permit

Trump supported and allowed the Pebble Limited Partnership, a subsidiary of a Canadian firm, to apply for a permit for a massive gold and copper mine, even though the Obama administration had concluded in 2014 the firm could not seek federal approval because it could have “significant” and potentially “catastrophic” impacts on the world’s largest sockeye salmon fishery in nearby Bristol Bay.

The traditional environmental groups and the region’s tribes in opposition to the project were joined by Trump’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., Fox News host Tucker Carlson and Vice President Pence’s former chief of staff, Nick Ayers, who all have enjoyed fishing or hunting around Bristol Bay, in opposing the project.

And now The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers have issued this statement;
Today, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers – Alaska District issued a record of decision that denies the Pebble Limited Partnership’s permit application to develop a copper-molybdenum-gold mine in southwest Alaska under Section 404 of the Clean Water Act and Section 10 of the Rivers and Harbors Act.

This decision on the proposed Pebble Project culminates a review process that lasted nearly three years and involved the development of an environmental impact statement. That assessment included an in-depth analysis of project alternatives along with an examination of supplemental technical information provided by cooperating agencies and the public. In its record of decision, USACE determined that the applicant’s plan for the discharge of fill material does not comply with Clean Water Act guidelines and concluded that the proposed project is contrary to the public interest.

This action is based on all available facts and complies with existing laws and regulations. It reflects a regulatory process that is fair, flexible and balanced. USACE is committed to maintaining and restoring the nation’s aquatic resources, while allowing reasonable development.

We strived for transparency, collaboration, accuracy and expediency throughout the decision-making process. We truly value and appreciate the contributions of everyone who engaged in this endeavor. Now, I’m proud to say that we delivered on our promise to conduct a thorough review and make a timely permit decision.

The record of decision is available at pebbleprojecteis.com.

GSA tells Biden that transition can formally begin

(CNN)The General Services Administration has informed President-elect Joe Biden that the Trump administration is ready to begin the formal transition process, according to a letter from Administrator Emily Murphy sent Monday afternoon and obtained by CNN.
The letter is the first step the administration has taken to acknowledge President Donald Trump's defeat, more than two weeks after Biden was declared the winner in the election.
Murphy said she had not been pressured by the White House to delay the formal transition and did not make a decision "out of fear or favoritism."

...


Trump tweeted moments after the letter was reported, thanking Murphy for her work and affirming the decision to start the transition.

"I want to thank Emily Murphy at GSA for her steadfast dedication and loyalty to our Country. She has been harassed, threatened, and abused -- and I do not want to see this happen to her, her family, or employees of GSA. Our case STRONGLY continues, we will keep up the good fight, and I believe we will prevail!" Trump tweeted. "Nevertheless, in the best interest of our Country, I am recommending that Emily and her team do what needs to be done with regard to initial protocols, and have told my team to do the same."

That doesn't look like a Trump tweet to me, I suspect it was posted by a federal worker in the White House.

But a welcome move all the same.

Covid-19: Oxford University vaccine shows 70% protection
The coronavirus vaccine developed by the University of Oxford stops 70% of people developing Covid symptoms, a large-scale trial shows.

It will be seen as both a triumph and a disappointment after vaccines by Pfizer and Moderna showed 95% protection.

However, the Oxford jab is far cheaper, and is easier to store and get to every corner of the world than the other two.

So it will still play a significant role in tackling the pandemic, if it is approved by regulators.

There is also intriguing data that suggests perfecting the dose could increase protection up to 90%.

Georgia completes hand audit of ballots, confirms Biden's victory
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger said on Thursday that a hand audit of ballots in the state was complete and had confirmed Joe Biden as the winner of the Nov. 3 election in the state.

An audit was launched after unofficial results showed Biden leading President Donald Trump by about 14,000 votes.

“The audit confirmed that the original machine count accurately portrayed the winner of the election,” the secretary of state’s office said in a statement on Thursday evening.

Raffensperger is expected to formally certify Biden’s victory on Friday.

Trump, who has claimed without evidence that there were widespread irregularities and fraud in states that he lost to Biden, including Georgia, can still request a recount in Georgia after the results are certified because the margin of victory was less than 0.5%.

Coronavirus latest news: 'Game changing' Oxford vaccine shows promising immune response in older adults


The University of Oxford coronavirus vaccine produces a strong immune response in older adults, and has been described as a "game changer," the latest trial results show, in another boost in the fight against Covid-19.

The ChAdOx1 nCov-2019 vaccine has been shown to trigger a robust immune response in healthy adults aged 56-69 and people over 70.

Phase two data, published in The Lancet, suggests one of the groups most vulnerable to serious illness and death from Covid-19 could build immunity, researchers say.

Phase three trials of the vaccine are ongoing, with early efficacy readings possible in the coming weeks.

UK authorities have placed orders for 100 million doses of the vaccine - enough to vaccinate most of the population - should it receive regulatory approval.

There are some advantages with the Oxford vacine compared to the Pfizer vacine.
Cost, Oxford £2.23/dose, Pfizer £29.47/2 jabs
Storage Oxford 35°F - 46°F (2°C - 8°C), Pfizer 109°F (-78°C)

Trump the superspreader.

Report in the Washington Post that "More than 130 Secret Service officers are said to be infected with coronavirus or quarantining in wake of Trump’s campaign travel"
https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/secret-service-coronavirus-outbreak/2020/11/13/610eebcc-2539-11eb-8672-c281c7a2c96e_story.html
More than 130 Secret Service officers who help protect the White House and the president when he travels have recently been ordered to isolate or quarantine because they tested positive for the coronavirus or had close contact with infected co-workers, according to three people familiar with agency staffing.
The spread of the coronavirus — which has sidelined roughly 10 percent of the agency’s core security team — is believed to be partly linked to a series of campaign rallies that President Trump held in the weeks before the Nov. 3 election, according to the people, who, like others interviewed for this report, spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe the situation.

The virus is having a dramatic impact on the Secret Service’s presidential security unit at the same time that growing numbers of prominent Trump campaign allies and White House officials have fallen ill in the wake of campaign events, where many attendees did not wear masks.

Among those who are infected are White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows and outside political advisers Corey Lewandowski and David Bossie.

In addition, at least eight staffers at the Republican National Committee, including Chief of Staff Richard Walters, have the virus, according to officials at the organization. Some of those infected are in field offices across the country, including Pennsylvania, where some believe they were exposed in large staff gatherings, an official said.

...
The agency is also examining whether some portion of the current infections are not travel-related, one government official said, but instead trace back to the site where many Secret Service officers report for duty each day: the White House.

Man faces 10 years in prison for voter fraud

In Pennsylvania, Robert R. Lynn requested a mail in ballot on behalf of his deceased mother. He is a republican and supports Donald Trump. The request stated that the absentee ballot was needed because she was going to visit her great-grandchildren. He forged her signature on the ballot request. He is out on a $10,000 bond and if convicted, the man may face 10 years in prison.

A Scam?
“They’re trying to STEAL this Election,” declared one such Trump campaign fundraising missive Wednesday afternoon. from “Donald J. Trump, President of the United States.” “I promise you my team is fighting the clock to DEFEND the integrity of this Election, but we cannot do it alone. We need EVERY Patriot, like YOU, to step up and make sure we have the resources to keep going. … Please contribute ANY AMOUNT RIGHT NOW to DEFEND the Election.”

But at the provided link to the “OFFICIAL ELECTION DEFENSE FUND,” the legalese at the end says something rather different:

Sixty percent of the contribution, up to $5,000, goes to “Save America,” Trump’s newly created leadership PAC. And 40 percent of the contribution up to $35,500, goes to the Republican National Committee’s operating account, its political (not legal) fund.

Only after reaching the first maximum would a single penny go to Trump’s “Recount Account,” and only after reaching the second maximum would a penny go to the RNC’s legal account.

Six ferrets were given the treatment and put in three separate cages in groups of two.

Two ferrets that were given a placebo were put in each cage along with one that had recently been infected with the novel coronavirus.

Scientists said none of the animals treated with the nasal spray contracted the virus after 24 hours.

Covid-19 vaccine candidate is 90% effective, says manufacturer
Interim analysis of vaccine by Pfizer/BioNTech far exceeds expectations of most experts

A vaccine against Covid-19 is in sight, with the announcement of the first interim results in large-scale trials showing the Pfizer/BioNTech candidate is 90% effective, according to the manufacturers, whose analysis shows a much better performance than most experts had hoped for.

The high percentage of those protected makes the findings compelling. Regulators have said they would approve a vaccine that is just 50% effective – protecting half those who get it. The company says there have been no serious side-effects.

“Today is a great day for science and humanity. The first set of results from our phase 3 Covid-19 vaccine trial provides the initial evidence of our vaccine’s ability to prevent Covid-19,” said Dr Albert Bourla, the Pfizer chairman and CEO.

“We are reaching this critical milestone in our vaccine development program at a time when the world needs it most with infection rates setting new records, hospitals nearing over-capacity and economies struggling to reopen.”

Pressure mounts on federal agency to affirm Biden victory
Until the General Services Administration determines Biden is the president-elect, his transition team cannot access government funds or communicate with federal agencies.

“We urge the Trump administration to immediately begin the post-election transition process and the Biden team to take full advantage of the resources available under the Presidential Transition Act,” they wrote.

The letter raises the pressure on the General Services Administration, whose administrator, Emily Murphy, has resisted affirming that Biden won the election. In a statement released Saturday, the agency said, "an ascertainment has not yet been made. GSA and its Administrator will continue to abide by, and fulfill, all requirements under the law.” The agency did not comment further on Sunday.

Until Murphy ascertains that Biden is the president-elect, the Biden transition cannot access government funds or communicate with the federal agencies they will be staffing. Experts say that the delay could hinder the Biden effort. "Every day counts in a transition, this year more than any transition since 1932,” said David Marchick, the director of the Center for Presidential Transition.

Here is a list of the potential Trump prosecutions and lawsuits I have found.

Tax fraud: New York's Attorney-General is investigating whether Donald Trump and his company committed tax fraud. The average prison sentence for tax evasion is three to five years. The maximum fine is $US250,000 ($343,000) for individuals and $US500,000 ($686,000) for corporations.

Obstruction of justice: The Mueller report identified 10 potential cases of obstruction of justice, but said a sitting president could not be indicted for a federal crime. The maximum jail term for the offence is five years.

Misuse of funds: Washington, DC, alleges the Trump inaugural committee violated the Nonprofit Act by knowingly overpaying for services at the Trump hotel in the capital.

Defamation: Summer Zervos, a contestant on The Apprentice alleges Trump defamed her by denying her allegations that he sexually assaulted her in 2007.

Defamation: E. Jean Carroll, an advice columnist, alleges Trump defamed her by denying her allegations of rape.

Compensation: Trump's former lawyer Michael Cohen is suing the Trump organisation for nearly $2 million in legal fees.

Alleged marketing scam: A group of plaintiffs allege Trump and his children misled people into investing in sham business opportunities.

Inheritance dispute: A case brought by Trump's niece Mary Trump, who published a book criticising the President, alleges she was cheated out of her inheritance by the Trump family.

Damages: Orestes Fintiklis and his fund, Ithaca Capital Investments, which took control of property from Trump International Hotels Management in 2018, is seeking $15 million in damages.

UK energy plant to use liquid air
Work is beginning on what is thought to be the world's first major plant to store energy in the form of liquid air.

It will use surplus electricity from wind farms at night to compress air so hard that it becomes a liquid at -196 Celcius.

Then when there is a peak in demand in a day or a month, the liquid air will be warmed so it expands.

The resulting rush of air will drive a turbine to make electricity, which can be sold back to the grid.

The 50MW facility near Manchester will store enough power for roughly 50,000 homes.

The system was devised by Peter Dearman, a self-taught backyard inventor from Hertfordshire, and it has been taken to commercial scale with a £10m grant from the UK government.

"It's very exciting," he told BBC News. "We need many different forms of energy storage - and I'm confident liquid air will be one of them."

Breaking Biden pulls ahead in Pennsylvania

We've just heard an update from election officials in Pennsylvania.
Biden has taken the lead over Trump by 5,587 votes, with 95% of the state's precincts reporting.
The state could hand him the 270 electoral college votes needed to win.
Just wondering how long will the Bimbo's next TV speech be & how long on air before it gets pulled. :-)

And no doubt he will complain about not being able to observe the vote counting, but wagdm what's this

Well it isn't over just yet... Joe Biden has a very narrow path to a very slim victory: he's currently leading in Arizona, Nevada, Wisconsin and Michigan by razor-thin margins, and with a comfortable lead in Maine. If he captures all five of these states, he will reach 271 electoral college votes , where 270 are required.

The votes being counted right now are mail-in/absentee which are predominantly Democratic, so he may keep those leads. Of course, Trump's campaign is trying to get the counts stopped but I have no idea why as then Biden would instantly be the victor as he's ahead!

Biden also leads the total vote count by 2.8 million. If Trump wins it will be another electoral college "victory"... 2016 all over again.

And if it hasn't been decided by Jan 20, then Nancy becomes President.

I think it might happen sooner than that. With the low birth rates and the increase in people of retirement age, the tax increases needed to pay social security will become politically unsustainable, for the working age population. The only way that the tax paying workforce can increase is by immigration. That immigration is not going to come from "white, non-hispanic" countries, therefore the population change will probably have to happen faster than that prediction.

Hawkeye speaks out
Alan Alda Speaks Out Against Donald Trump’s Willful Denial Of Science In The COVID-Era: “At This Moment, We Are All On Fifth Avenue”

“Trump once said he could shoot someone on Fifth Avenue without consequences,” Alda continues in the Post piece. “At this moment, we are all on Fifth Avenue.”

His words carry weight, given the United States had by Thursday recorded nearly 9 million infections and over a quarter of a million deaths from the virus.

Alda, who is not just an an actor and writer but also a co-founder of the Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science at Stony Brook University, is particularly offended by the president’s denial of science.

“Trump’s deceitful assurances that covid-19 (sic) is nothing to worry about have laid untold dead at the feet of this president,” Alda writes, before pointing out the scientific community’s unanimous opposition to one of the president’s most recent (supposed) lightbulb moments.

The concept of herd immunity, Alda maintains, “has been excoriated by the world’s leading infectious-disease experts. But the Trump administration seems willing to let a few hundred thousand people die and hope for the best.”

And for those who think he’s just another unelected, entitled celebrity criticizing the president, Alda claims an authority based on one of the measures most valued by Trump: ratings.

“Almost 63 million people voted for Donald Trump in 2016,” writes the actor, “but in 1983, more than 106 million people watched the last episode of M.A.S.H. So, it seems that by this president’s standard, I’m a bigger deal than he is.”


From the WaPo original piece.
So, I’m speaking now, and I hope you will, too. Someone you know who hasn’t thought it necessary to vote might decide to cast a ballot.

I hope they’ll vote for science. I hope they’ll vote for life.

'Anonymous' Trump administration critic identifies himself

"But my reasoning was straightforward, and I stand by it. Issuing my critiques without attribution forced the President to answer them directly on their merits or not at all, rather than creating distractions through petty insults and name-calling. I wanted the attention to be on the arguments themselves."
And the man himself falls right into the trap.

at a rally in Arizona, President Trump said: "This guy is a low-level lowlife that I don't know."
How many lies is that now?

So you can get this close and not be known, interesting.

Well the world's total case tally has now passed 42 million along with over 1,144,000 deaths and the last reporting period saw a massive 479,312+ cases being reported. :-O

Are we shortly to see a day where 500,000 cases get recorded?

Just to keep things straight as the election gets near, Trump has made 22,247 false or misleading claims in the 1316 days he has been in office. just about 17/day, but as he started slowly at less than 7/day, he now does >30/day.

The most common repeat is about the GDP and unemployment, at 407 times, which because he didn't control the pandemic have both now tanked, bigly.

And on a separate subject, can we now add to the list of his crimes, 545 known cases of kidnap of children, were there parents have been sent to destinations unknown. And the Federal government is not carrying out any search for the parents, that has been taken on by the American Civil Liberties Union, a nongovernmental organization.

In terms of bridges it is quite young - near where I live there are quite a few bridges that are well over double that age....

You mean like this one, built in 1561/2,

Cromwell's Bridge no evidence his army did cross it so maybe Brandywine Bridge is a better name?

I wouldn't be at all surprised if he had slush accounts strewn around the world.

The https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Trump_Organization says
The Trump Organization is a group of about 500 business entities of which Donald Trump is the sole or principal owner
And I must assume each has a bank account in the country it operates.

My niece, a GP, made an interesting comment yesterday evening, that there are very few pneumonia or flu cases so far.

And the Telegraph has this, 'No sign of second wave' as ONS data shows normal level of deaths for time of year
People who would normally be expected to die of flu or pneumonia may instead be dying from Covid-19

There is no sign of a second coronavirus wave, experts have said as new Office for National Statistics (ONS) figures showed that deaths are just 1.5 per cent above the five-year average and tracking on a normal trajectory for the time of year.

Although Covid deaths rose to 438 for the week ending October 9 – an increase of 36 per cent from the previous week, when the figure stood at 321 – overall deaths rose just 143 above the five-year average. There were also 19 fewer overall deaths than in the same week last year.

Experts at Oxford University said the number would have to get to 1,200 deaths above the norm before it would usually be considered "excess" above the expected variation in the data.

Researchers also found there would usually be around 1,600 weekly deaths from flu and pneumonia for the same week. Deaths from coronavirus, flu and pneumonia are currently running at 1,621, suggesting there is virtually no increase in expected respiratory deaths.

The ONS figures also do not factor in the UK's growing and ageing population, which would be expected to increase the number of deaths over time and which are likely to cancel out at least some of the increase.

For example, between 2010 and 2019 the number of deaths for the week ending October 9 rose from 9,281 to 9,973 – about 70 extra deaths a year.
