Well BoJo wanted to study the variants in situ so he needed them to spread first... Will the Indian variant become the UK variant 2.0 ?
I've seen that Ohio will give 1 million dollars to 5 vaccinated people, crazy ! Maybe others will follow, it's probably a good idea.
Braybuddy : so you think law abiding, successful Black American people don't resent the police treating Black people badly, even if it's not them personally ? And it is them personally anyway, driving a nice car while Black ? Suspicious. Entering a nice home while Black ? Suspicious. Remember the pr...Jump to post
Israeli courts are generally not considered to be fully secular. It seems dubious at best to suggest Palestinians should simply trust such institutions to be fair arbiters when Israel already disregards both multiple UN resolutions and int’l law. ...which is / was not created by Israel and they are...Jump to post
How many are hating the checks they're getting from Biden ? The GOP is bragging about what's in the plan despite having voted against it, it passed without a single GOP vote.

No the electrical grid is more vulnerable than the pipeline. Okie But you can make your own electricity. Gas, not really.

I doubt Gates diddled girls but I'm allowing to be surprised on that. He's a very calculated individual (as some here suggest by saying he wants to take over the world or something) so I can't imagine he would do that without holding all the cards. He's no Trump.Jump to post
First time I hear about the "Hollywood Foreign Press Association". I must say the concept is a bit strange, you must be a foreigner writing for foreign newspapers, but live in LA. You must become an American, basically, but still have a "foreign view" ? Lately, if they gave the a...Jump to post
They are taken seriously in many organizations ,but some organizations just sit there and leave things open. In many cases it is due to employees falling for Phishing scams( emails, or links) that can run and work over open ports in the network, which allow criminals to take control.

Seeing the victims' families tearing up at the announcement is very sad. They really think this will bring them some peace, I doubt it will.

The eviction decisions are asinine since of course Palestinian claims on vast swaths of the country of Israel are never enforced... It only works one way.

I didn't say they can have sex, but it doesn't fall under the new law, so it isn't rape, it's not sexual assault either, it's something below that. Also minors are judged as minors in France so it would lower the penalty further. I'm only talking about a "consensual" relationship, which is...Jump to post
We need an all of the above strategy. Whataboutisms are just that, a way to not do anything. As for a catastrophe impending, to each their own. Seeing species disappear, beaches disappear, glaciers disappear, is catastrophic to me, even though it doesn't prevent human life. Humans can live in concre...Jump to post
Some doctors are now confident they can catch and treat correctly the rare cases of thrombosis caused by the AZ vaccine.

About age of consent, there has just been a change in France, well the age hasn't changed (to some feminists' despair), it's still 15, but something similar to "statutory rape" was introduced... To use the word "rape" is outrageous. Just like in India. The feminists wanted the a...Jump to post
I was not following this back then so I didn't realize that the last election for the Scottish parliament were before the Brexit referendum ! So yes the SNP advocated for independence, but back then that wasn't on the cards for voters. Here that was clearly what the campaign was about, and people vo...Jump to post
moo : I have the exact opposite opinion (as an outsider). I'm against independence, because I don't like countries breaking up, and it gives ideas to others (including in my country). However I think a referendum has to happen in Scotland. I don't think there would be another one quickly after that ...Jump to post

Here in France the equivalent of the DMVs have been closed, I just learned.

I wouldn't say it is a scheme. But it is worth pointing out that it is only worth what people are willing to pay for it, no different than stocks. Crypto is different from stocks. It’s worse.

The reasons people do something don't really matter. Is it good or bad is all that matters. The B&M fundation might not always do good, but it seems to do alright.
