    Are you saying that this guy's Norton antivirus mask will not protect him from Covid ridden droplets?

    looks like an OEM copy lol 
    It's nice to be cautious but I don't think getting paranoid is good either. The stress of overthinking if you got exposed might actually be bad to you as stress causes the release of cortisol which is an immunosuppressive hormone.

    around 90% effective to the OG SARS-Coronavirus-2, the SA and Brazil mutations lead to decreased efficacy
     
    you can still carry the virus through fomites and infect others, but assuming your body was able to quickly ramp up antibodies and other immune cells, you cannot transmit the virus through sneezing respiratory droplets. The adaptive immune system once it recognizes a known antigen can quickly respond in a matter of few hours instead of two weeks.

    Nothing beats flu and cornaviruses better than taking a bath or handwashing with soap and water. I remember around March where many people are hoarding every bottle of rubbing alcohol and toilet paper in every supermarket shelf, but no one pays attention to hand and bath soaps.

    I was vaccinated for the flu, about 3 weeks ago. Before that, I hadn't had a flu shot
    since 1980.

    I think you're missing the point somewhat. Geographical privilege is 100% a thing that exists and unfortunately the more we allow the virus to spread in the wild the higher chance there is of it mutating to avoid our current vaccines.
     
    In lots of places on Earth, the poorer areas are also the most densely packed (South America, India & parts of Africa) which is a perfect storm for mutation. You have large groups of people living in less than ideal circumstances with very little money and no access to healthcare at all.
     
    While the richer nations are all vaccinating the virus is still running rampant in the poorer countries, all it takes is for a new variant to emerge that can avoid our current vaccines and suddenly all our work to this point has been for nothing.
     
    There are VERY legitimate reasons to want to get the poorer people vaccinated as quickly as possible aside from having a "Ph.D in Privilege" as you put it, apart from the obvious saving as many lives as we can reason.

    This is going to sound very callous but sometimes reality is harsh...
     
    Its not just what will happen, its what has to happen. As you pointed out, vaccines cost money and even the most philanthropic person must realise that if the vaccine manufacturers don't make their money NOBODY will get vaccines.
     
    The way this disease has caused worldwide collaboration from businesses that 18 months ago would have been direct competitors shows how serious of a problem it is.
     
    COVAX is a good thing, I'm glad it exists and that rich countries are putting funds forward to help the less fortunate but putting everyone else at risk to help those who cannot afford to help themselves is every bit as stupid as allowing those who can't help themselves to suffer.
     
    No life is worth any more or less than any other life no matter what background, the important thing is that we allow the vaccine manufacturers to do what they need to.

    Well our gov't basically said screw the CDC guidelines and let anyone who want it have it because even before Covid, we have high cases of bacterial pneumonia. I had it before I started my treatment for my autoimmune disease, my mom, dad and my sister had it. But I can understand as to why some countries would restrict it to healthcare workers and people with preexisting conditions in order to maintain adequate supply.

    captain_to_fire got a reaction from Jet_ski in [Rumor] Prossor: Small Mac Pro and redesigned iMac   
    Why would the iMacs need a discrete GPU when Apple has proven that their their in-house GPU can perform well. They can simply scale up the current M1 and add more GPU cores while it sip less power than anything Intel or AMD has to offer. Adding a discrete GPU will simply ruin their design for Apple Silicon. https://developer.apple.com/videos/play/wwdc2020/10602/

    Don't forget to get a pneumococcal vaccine too (PCV13 and/or PPSV23), ask your doctor about it. It will not protect you from Covid-19 but it should help reducing mortality due to S.pneumoniae, a common secondary bacterial infection in cases viral pneumonia.

    captain_to_fire reacted to Master Disaster in [India] Social media platforms must remove content within 36 hours of govt order and other Censorship rules   
    Using the slippery slope argument is a slippery slope (you like what I did there?).
     
    I see nothing in this article that says anything about censorship, all it says is that, if your government request something be removed then it must be removed.
     
    Heck you even provided evidence that debunks your own topic. They literally say Adult content must be locked behind a verification method, nothing about removing it entirely. I guess nobody told them a reliable online age verification system is pretty much impossible, they'll have to come to that conclusion over time.
