I hadn't thought about a city rule knocking out players on the other team. But, that's an interesting concept that could play out with local regulations. If a city government develops a last minute regulation and knocks out the opponent team, while also betting on the game, what would we call...
I suppose this makes it a competitive advantage for teams where all players (and staff) are vaccinated. They're less likely to have a case that results in game impacts.
If I was a coach, I wouldn't want the disadvantage of having to deal with unvaccinated players (or staff).
You're looking at the wrong comparison, as if COVID is the only thing an ICU is used for, so 50% COVID utilization doesn't' sound that bad.
Compare it to normal "excess ICU capacity".
If, prior to COVID, say back in 2018, the ICU normally ran at 80% capacity with 20% free to deal with unknown...
Get vaccinated if you're not already.
If you know anyone not vaccinated, get them vaccinated too.
The sooner the better.
All the rest is just noise, most of it depressing, if it's not achieving the above.
Doing your own Vaccine Research
And for those dealing with caring for a loved one at home. I've found this comic relatable about Scott's journey with his father after a stroke. At least relatable to me, my father in law passed from MS a number of years ago they're...
J&J doesn't use mRNA, but it's still different and isn't an inactivated COVID virus, it's a third thing.
First google hit:
Opting out of all those things is an option.
Just like the power of the state keeps people from reliving themselves just anywhere for public health. That same standard applies to public settings where used lung air will be shared without option.
If someone doesn’t want to take precautions...
Our school is requiring vaccination for all winter and spring athletics in the middle and high school. Presumably fall next year too.
I assume that for everyone will follow, but maybe not this year. We have a virtual option people could apply to if that’s an issue.
Right before reading this, my wife was literally telling me the story of how her uncle had all his grandkids over earlier in the week, and then tested positive on Friday. Breakthrough case, but he still feels like crap and has lots of symptoms. His wife is isolating now, no symptoms, but as a...
Because we all have extensive experience traveling in space ships that behave consistent with the technology and physics interactions as depicted in Star Wars?
I mean, sure, I head out in my T-16 most weekends. But, I figured that was just me.
True. But, I didn't want anyone to get into a fight about if he died "of" COVID, or "with" COVID.
Since everyone knows you're not really dead if it's just "with" instead of "of".
He 100% did die because of an "impact from" COVID, even if it wasn't a virus impact to his specific cells.
It doesn't specifically say if he was vaccinated or not, but it reads like he was. Not that it matters, COVID didn't kill him. He wasn't able to learn to live with the risk in the...
Unfortunately, it's almost impossible for people who treated COVID as nothing and dismissed the vaccine for the last 18 months to acknowledge that difference too. Acknowledging it means coming to terms with the fact that they spent all that time being wrong. That's a really hard self...
They should switch the metric. Using Percent Positivity as the metric for masks was always silly. It's a great metric to determine if you're testing enough and doing enough contact tracing. That's about it though. It tells you how good the rest of the metrics are or if you're missing lots of...
They don't need some hide away secret exit and return.
There's an entire room and structure set up to move people from the valet onto the ship. Why wouldn't they just use that anytime someone needs to move from valet to ship? I mean, for staffing and best story experience, they want you to...
The house is flooding. There’s a burst pipe and a kid is spilling a drink.
We shouldn’t ignore the drink spilling, but if it’s distracting from the burst pipe, we’re focusing on the wrong item.
It’s like focusing on plexiglass dividers and cleaning surfaces every 10 minutes while ignoring...
What do you think the percentage breakdown is?
In an area with transmission occurring, what percent is from unvaccinated vs vaccinated?
Is it 90% unvaccinated, 10% vaccinated?
30%-70%, mostly from vaccinated?
Clearly there will be something, and it’ll be a percentage...
