  1. One from Al Kooper in 1976.
  2. It's good to see a fair assessment here for a change. It makes a change from all the scientist bashing which seems to have become the norm on this forum.
  3. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2021/apr/12/apple-and-google-block-nhs-covid-app-update-over-privacy-breaches Looks like the planned tracking got blocked
  4. Irish Government far more ambitious than spaffer😁
  5. Assuming an average of 5 years for each your family has lost 30 years with these members. I do not understand how this can be seen as acceptable in any way
  6. I may be a bit cynical, but I see this as the hotels seeing an opportunity to save some money. Have the same guests in a room for 10 days allows them to provide large packages instead of the one portion packages they use when a room is typically occupied for 1 or 2 nights.
  7. I think he was querying whether his hotels would be providing phone services.
  8. I think you are really misrepresenting what was said in the interview. The manager was highlighting the lack of communication with the government, and at no time suggested that they should not be allowed. https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/m000ryx9/bbc-news-at-one-04022021 (The interview starts around 8 minutes )
  9. I'm just getting info on this from my daughter.

  10. 95% If nothing unexpected in the next few months.
  11. We are all guessing what is in the contracts, remember when Scotland tried to publish info about delivery schedules a while ago. I suspect this is not as clear cut as we would like to believe.
  12. December is the date they are predicted to achieve herd immunity. They have approved pfizer and are due to start vaccination in February. https://www.australia.gov.au/ I keep a close watch on developments in Australia as I hope to go there sometime this year.

  13. I find this unbelievable https://www.theguardian.com/world/2021/jan/22/foreign-nhs-workers-risk-being-denied-covid-vaccine-england Compare to this https://www.unhcr.org/news/press/2021/1/5ffffe614/refugees-receive-covid-19-vaccinations-jordan.html
  14. Quick google found this saying $3.60 per dose. Seems to be in line with other quoted prices. https://apnews.com/article/africa-south-africa-coronavirus-pandemic-coronavirus-vaccine-22f3d4d4a9364ddd4c07b87f4d5294f8
  15. Rule of 14 replacing rule of 6?
