The way out of the flying bottle: Wittgenstein’s 100-year-old “The Analects” Los Angeles Book Review (Anthony L)
We pointed out in 2020 that British data clearly shows that children are the main communication medium. Paper courtesy guurst: The elderly need to be vaccinated against COVID19. MedRxIV. It is frustrating to see the call for a vaccine when they have not taken too many measures to prevent transmission! But apparently no one wants to let their children stay at home or take more serious mitigation measures at school.
To my surprise, although there is very clear evidence that children with high exposure rates (schools) and least vaccinated children can spread the virus, many in the British scientific community still deny that this means delays in vaccination and school Mitigation measures are completely inadequate. https://t.co/zfdl9roT3Y

Saint John asks for material donations during the global shortage Buck Railway. It is true that this is on the flyover, so it is both remote and not a favored customer, but IM Doc has CEO patients and reports:
My understanding is that it will take us about 2 months or so to be completely exhausted [of aluminum]A large part of this is transportation issues in Los Angeles and Long Beach-but obviously, recycled aluminum must be made with some very weird equipment. And there are obviously no parts now. There is no clever old technician who knows how to repair the machine. At least not enough…
I learned from my orthopedic colleagues that they have to keep any number of patients in the hospital because it is not safe for them to do PT at home. No crutches. There are no walkers. There is nothing aluminum. This situation has been going on for the past 2-3 weeks or so. Not literally. The hospital has crutches it uses, but the supply is too low at this time and they will not leave the building.
Again, this is in his world, which is likely to be shortened first. But they may be canaries in the coal mine.
Family went @ZSFGCare In the emergency room, I got back an 800-dollar bill. I called the insurance company and they said they would contact the hospital to negotiate. The hospital just sent a letter saying that they were “happy to inform” that after talking with the insurance company, we now owe $1,000.
