I'm getting my 2nd booster on Friday. Will be going to Vegas and AZ the weeks after that.

China (esp. Shanghai) is having a tough time with yet another COVID outbreak. Something to keep an eye on.

I read yesterday that 1 in 13 people in the entire UK currently have Covid AB.2. Not have had it, but currently do.

A big part of China's problem is a far less effective vaccine than the one available in the West and other parts of Asia.

Interesting. Good to know. I was starting to wonder if this thing will ever end. It might just end up like the flu. Just hope I don't have to get a shot every six months.

Researchers: Nearly Half Of Accounts Tweeting About Coronavirus Are Likely Bots
https://www.npr.org/sections/coronaviru ... ikely-bots
Nearly half of the Twitter accounts spreading messages on the social media platform about the coronavirus pandemic are likely bots, researchers at Carnegie Mellon University said Wednesday.

It is too early to say conclusively which individuals or groups are behind the bot accounts, but researchers said the tweets appeared aimed at sowing division in America.

"We do know that it looks like it's a propaganda machine, and it definitely matches the Russian and Chinese playbooks, but it would take a tremendous amount of resources to substantiate that," said Kathleen Carley, a professor of computer science at Carnegie Mellon University who is conducting a study into bot-generated coronavirus activity on Twitter that has yet to be published.

This happens because Republicans appoint judges who are deemed unqualified by the ABA because they are partisan shills.

Same ABA:

"For recent U.S. Supreme Court nominees, Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr., Justice Samuel Alito, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Justice Elena Kagan, Justice Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, and Amy Coney Barrett all received the same "well qualified" rating."

Yeah, I mean, the issue with Trump's SCOTUS justices wasn't that they lacked the credentials. It was that he stole the seat that was rightfully Obama's (Gorsuch), and then totally did the reverse and nominated a justice 3 weeks before leaving office (Barrett). Dems should pack the Court in response, but don't have the votes nor the guts.

Yeah, the fact that the ABA says Barrett is qualified, despite only being a judge for <3 years, says a whole lot about Mizelle.

Their mom died of COVID. They say conspiracy theories are what really killed her
https://www.npr.org/sections/health-sho ... y-theories
She also says she's slowly making her peace with Stephanie's death.

"I'm a lot less angry," she says.

But she still thinks about the people who make the paranoia-laced videos that her mother consumed day after day. She understands that something inside her mother drew her to those voices, but Laurie still sees Stephanie mainly as a victim of the grifters and attention-seekers who generate many hours of falsehoods every day to grab money, likes and shares.

"Whoever is creating all this content, is on some level waging a war — here in America — inside of every family," she says. "I think people need to wake up to that."

Our family all just tested positive for it. Haven't been feeling great. Sore throat, congestion, light cough, sore chest / upper body. Not fun. Wife and I vaccinated and boosted (Pfizer). Daughter is too young to be vaccinated (2 1/2). Woke up with bad diarrhea the 2nd day of symptoms. On about day 4 now. Have lost some of my taste but not all of it. Thank God for the Suns.
