    Football 2021/22

    Followed it in BBC live ticker. Seemed the subs in the 2nd half turned the game around for England
  2. And of course this one is a belter Blu told us that Boris would give us back our freedom from the EU loony left
  3. Yes didn't Donnie say once the election was over Covid would rapidly disappear ? And i do seem to remember Wolfie on a few ocassions hinting at a conspiracy because Covid was mainly in Democrat States, so he said Pro-Trump counties now have far higher COVID death rates. Misinformation is to blame https://www.npr.org/sections/health-shots/2021/12/05/1059828993/data-vaccine-misinformation-trump-counties-covid-death-rate?t=1656427892083
  4. Yes, there are quite a number of liars about, for sure. This forum has opened my eyes to that pandemic

    European Union - In Or Out?

    In that sense i don't think it makes much difference. I think someone from Bulgaria has to have the same security checks that someone from Turkey must have. Though maybe the Police spokesman has experience that it take that much longer to get information from the Turkish authorities. The thing was more, that the Airports had sleep walked into a problem of their own making and reacted too late But one point being made was, you have to have made exhaustive efforts to employ people living in the EU before you can bring people in from outside. And it was questionable if those efforts had been made. Although on this i assume if you have an airport security pass for Bulgaria or Turkey it could well be unnecessary to have further checks. Dangerous though i would guess

    European Union - In Or Out?

    If i am fair, which i consider myself to be, then we also have a problem in Germany. I was watching a piece last night where one or more airports were considering bringing in agency workers from Turkey to help out. But a police spokesman was saying it takes around 4-6 weeks to get people cleared to work in an airport in these areas, due to security. What are they going to do, ignore the rules etc.....as by the time they are cleared the rush will be over at the start of summer holidays
  7. I loved the 'vaccine made me magnetic' ones
  8. I don't know, but these regular posts lately do smack of the Nigel Farage school of foreign aid attacks Just saying, although i am sure there is nothing Faragesque or Tommy Robinson in them
  9. More to how the anti-vaxx movement is tightly linked to MAGA loons and Senator Ron Johnson https://misinformationkills.substack.com/p/anti-vax-ron-johnson-is-a-seditious?utm_source=twitter&sd=pf
  10. Threats being sent out to politicians and doctors. Are they linked in any way i wonder ?
  11. A good piece that follows the connections of some of the anti-vaxxer groups and individuals all the way back to Big Oil Climate liar and right wing ex Trumper or is he still a Trumper ? Charles Koch https://misinformationkills.substack.com/p/the-4-physician-groups-leading-the

    European Union - In Or Out?

    Reading about Brexit and its emerging realities on the sixth anniversary of the UK voting to leave the EU (Brexit is making cost of living crisis worse, new study claims, 22 June), I was reminded of the Hans Christian Andersen story The Emperor’s New Clothes. Here, the weavers persisted with the lie that they were creating the most fantastic set of clothes for the emperor. He believed them, despite the fact that there was no evidence of their existence. So certain was he of this false narrative that he led a public procession celebrating their wearing, only for a child to say: “He’s got nothing on.” As Covid drifts away, along with the other excuses touted by the Brexitbrethren, the businesses, farmers, fishers and scientists of Britain are now realising the horrible truth: Brexit was a fraud of giant proportions. Disconnecting from its neighbouring and biggest trading partner was always foolish and, in economic terms, suicidal. The weavers of Brexit convinced voters that they would get their sovereignty back, even though they never lost it. They spun stories of incredible wealth generated from all sorts of magic trade deals, even though former British leaders such as Winston Churchill and Margaret Thatcher were exponents of a Europe that would make trade its central theme and that, along with a suite of rights-based initiatives based on proper human values, would outlaw war from within for future generations. At least the emperor finally realised his folly. It’s time the British people realised the same sooner rather than later.

  13. Well i never. As you can imagine, my flabber was well and truly gasted A possible link between blood clots and ongoing symptoms of Covid is under scrutiny by researchers in the UK. While Covid can cause a period of acute illness, it can also lead to longer-term problems. Research has suggested fewer than a third of patients who have ongoing Covid symptoms after being hospitalised with the disease feel fully recovered a year later. Now researchers are due to begin a number of trials to explore whether blood thinners may help those who have had the disease. https://www.theguardian.com/society/2022/jun/27/possible-link-between-blood-clots-and-covid-symptoms-investigated

    European Union - In Or Out?

    Environment Council: main climate proposals of the Fit for 55 package under discussion Tomorrow, Executive Vice-President for the European Green Deal, Frans Timmermans, and Commissioner for the Environment, Oceans and Fisheries, Virginijus Sinkevičius will represent the Commission at the Environmental Council in Luxembourg. The Council meeting will be focused on the Commission proposals of the Fit for 55 package presented in July of last year to deliver the increased target of reducing net greenhouse gas emissions by at least 55% by 2030, compared to 1990 levels. Ministers will discuss and aim at reaching the Council position (general approaches) on the revision of the greenhouse gas emission allowance trading system (EU ETS), including ETS for aviation, the extension to maritime emissions as well as a new emissions trading system for road transport and buildings; the revision of the regulation on binding annual greenhouse gas emission reductions by member states (Effort Sharing regulation); the revision of the regulation on greenhouse gas emissions and removals from land use, land use change and forestry (LULUCF), revision of rules for CO2 emission performance standards for new passenger cars and for new light commercial vehicles; and the regulation establishing a social climate fund. In the field of environment, the Commission proposal to reduce to a minimum the consumption of products coming from supply chains associated with deforestation or forest degradation will be further discussed with the objective of also reaching a general approach and ministers will take note of a progress report on the revised waste shipment regulation. As part of the agenda, the Commission will inform on the outcome of the main recent international meetings like the UN Bonn Climate Change Conference this month and present several recently adopted legislative proposals such as the regulation on fluorinated greenhouse gases and regulation on the ozone layer, revision of the directive on industrial emissions, regulation on eco-design of products and the regulation on the nature restoration

    Green agenda Vice-President Maroš Šefčovič visits Norway to advance cooperation on batteries and critical raw materials On 26 and 27 June, Vice-President for Interinstitutional Relations and Foresight Maroš Šefčovič is in Norway to pave the way to a strategic partnership between the EU and Norway on batteries and critical raw materials. As outlined in his joint statement with Minister of Trade and Industry Jan Christian Vestre, Norway will participate in the European Battery Alliance and the European Battery Academy. The two sides will also explore new business opportunities, forge battery and raw materials projects, and step up research and innovation, including through a series of joint events. Vice-President Maroš Šefčovič said: “As the EU prepares to accelerate the green and digital transitions, boosting our cooperation with Norway is of strategic value. By integrating our battery and raw materials value chains, with emphasis on sustainability and circularity, we will boost resilience of both our economies. This will also contribute to deepening our close partnership, based on the European Economic Agreement.” Today's milestone comes only four months after the idea of an EU-Norwegian Green Alliance was tabled by the President von der Leyen and Norway's Prime Minister Støre. In the meeting with representatives of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Vice-President Šefčovič appreciated the Norwegian government's commitment to the EEA Agreement, while welcoming the recent launch of the EU-EEA negotiations on the financial mechanism for 2021-2027, aimed at reducing economic and social disparities, in line with the twin transitions. He also meets Minister for Energy Terje Aasland, participates in a roundtable with representatives of Norwegian battery and raw materials industry, and visits the Hydrovolt facility in Fredrikstad

  17. Can’t remember if it was Blu or Wolfie who was always telling us the Stock Market knows, ya know Well I guess they will finally have to admit the truth or say they were talking rubbish again. But this will surely please them The stock price of Pfizer Inc. (NYSE: PFE) increased by over 2% during intraday trading today. Investors are responding positively to Pfizer and BioNTech announcing positive data evaluating the safety, tolerability, and immunogenicity of two Omicron-adapted COVID-19 vaccine candidates: one monovalent and the other bivalent, a combination of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine and a vaccine candidate targeting the spike protein of the Omicron BA.1 variant of concern. The data from the Phase 2/3 trial found that a booster dose of both Omicron-adapted vaccine candidates elicited a substantially higher immune response against Omicron BA.1 as compared to the companies’ current COVID-19 vaccine. And the robust immune response was seen across two investigational dose levels, 30 µg, and 60 µg. The Omicron-adapted vaccine candidates (30 µg and 60 µg) studied in the Phase 2/3 trial in 1,234 participants 56+ years elicited substantially higher neutralizing antibody responses against Omicron BA.1 when compared to the companies’ current COVID-19 vaccine. And the pre-specified criterion for superiority was measured by the ratio of neutralizing geometric mean titers (GMR) with the lower bound of the 95% confidence interval >1. The geometric mean ratios (GMRs) for the monovalent 30 µg and 60 µg vaccines compared to the current COVID-19 vaccine were 2.23 (95% CI: 1.65, 3.00) and 3.15 (95% CI: 2.38, 4.16), respectively. And the GMRs for the bivalent 30 µg and 60 µg vaccines compared to the current COVID-19 vaccine were 1.56 (95% CI: 1.17, 2.08) and 1.97 (95% CI: 1.45, 2.68), respectively. The monovalent Omicron-adapted vaccine 30 µg and 60 µg achieved a lower bound 95% confidence interval for GMR of >1.5, consistent with the regulatory requirement of super superiority. The demonstration of superiority against Omicron and safety are regulatory requirements for potential emergency use authorization of a variant-adapted vaccine. One month after administration, a booster dose of the Omicron-adapted monovalent candidates (30 µg and 60 µg) increased neutralizing geometric mean titers (GMT) against Omicron BA.1 13.5 and 19.6-fold above pre-booster dose levels, while a booster dose of the Omicron-adapted bivalent candidates conferred a 9.1 and 10.9-fold increase in neutralizing GMTs against Omicron BA.1. And both Omicron-adapted vaccine candidates were well-tolerated in participants who received one or the other Omicron-adapted vaccine. These results are being shared with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and European Medicines Agency (EMA) in advance of upcoming discussions with the FDA Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee (VRBPAC) on June 28 and with the International Coalition of Medicines Regulatory Authorities (ICMRA) on June 30. And the companies have also submitted additional data from their ongoing COVID-19 booster studies, including data on an additional dose of their current COVID-19 vaccine and Beta candidate, to further demonstrate the flexibility and potential benefit of mRNA-based vaccines. I hope that is clear

    The researchers analyzed penguin bones and seashells from ancient Antarctic beaches using radiocarbon dating to reconstruct changes in sea level relative to the coast over 5,000 years, per the statement. Scientists also studied the shifting height of the land under the changing loads of ice to see how glaciers retreated and advanced. Larger, heavier glaciers can cause the land to sink and sea level relative to the coast to rise and lighter glaciers can lead the land to rise and sea level relative to the coast to fall. https://www.smithsonianmag.com/smart-news/antarcticas-doomsday-glacier-melting-at-fastest-rate-in-5500-years-180980281/
