    Covid: the shape of things to come

    It is much the same here. Our hospitals are groaning under the weight of Covid patients. (We are currently #2 in new per-capita infections, bested only by North Korea.) That is despite a 96% vaccination rate. With Omicron, the vaccines really don't seem to do all that much to prevent infection...

    Covid: the shape of things to come

    When Australia went through its wave of anti-lockdown demonstrations, many news outlets (left- and right-leaning) noticed that the demonstrations attracted a fair share of political extremists. They used the general unhappiness of the protesters as a vehicle to inject their own agenda and...

    Covid: the shape of things to come

    Maybe we could all take a deep breath and do a reset? I do find this thread useful, I have learned a lot here, and not just from one side. I believe there is value here, if we can manage to keep things civilised.

    Clarification for non-Australians, that is the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, not the American version.

    Covid: the shape of things to come

    This graphic is taken from the original study. It shows deaths in 2021 of vaccinated and unvaccinated cohorts. Or, in numbers, in 2021, per capita, for every vaccinated person who died of Covid, 47.62 unvaccinated persons died of Covid. I guess the vaccine deniers will find a way to twist this...

    Whats cooking? **** Making something fine and fancy?** Just plain good? Show us!

    That looks bloody awesome! Very beautiful! I take it that the sashimi is all from the same single fish? If so, it's amazing to get that much color contrast from the same fish! Mahi Mahi is not available in Australia I believe. At least, I've never spotted it at a fish market. If it's around...

    Can you clue me in on the joke? I don't get it. As you might have guessed, I'm not from Pittsburgh ;)

    Covid: the shape of things to come

    I take it that you don't like NPR? I linked to the original study and the piece NPR did on it because I like to quote my sources. I don't understand. Do you think that the study can be no good because NPR reported on it, or do you see a problem with the study? Do you spell "ad hominem" the...

    That's not raw meat. The whole thing is cooked. The red color comes from the beetroot that goes into the mix.

    It doesn't look like much, but is really delicious. Salty, sour, meaty, and filling. Great winter food!

    Whats cooking? **** Making something fine and fancy?** Just plain good? Show us!

    There is a similar German dish, "Labskaus". Also made with things that were available on sailing boats and had a long shelf life. Ingredients are corned beef, potatoes, onion, pickled cucurmber, pickled beetroot, and spices (mustard, salt, pepper, bay leaf, and cloves). The whole thing is...

    WTS ATTENTION: PayPal Friends and Family - beware

    A long password is effectively unbreakable, provided that it is not compromised and only ever stored and exchanged in encrypted form. But there is absolutely no guarantee that some arbitrary website won't do something totally stupid, such as store a password in plain text. Heck, I can't count...

    looking to buy this unique pizza cutter again

    Looks like it works fine. But does it really work better than a normal in-line pizza wheel? Just curious, I have no skin in this game ;)

    Covid: the shape of things to come

    I just listened to an NPR story on the way home in my car. It reports on a study by researchers at Brown University and Microsoft AI. NPR report that, of the 641,000 people who died after vaccines became available in the US, nearly 319,000 would still be alive if they had taken the vaccine. So...

    Anyone here make kimchi?

    Haha :) I make sauerkraut every now and then, but have never tried kimchi. It's not an ingredient that I use a lot, and it's just so easy to pick up a small tub of it at the local Asian market. Maybe one of these days… ;)

    Covid: the shape of things to come

    Suppose we look at fatalities among vaccinated people, and there are x deaths per 100,000. And, for unvaccinated people, suppose y deaths per 100,000. If x and y differ, and the difference is statistically significant, then we can start to think about why that might be. It could be due to being...

    I suspected as much! :D I have managed to limit myself to 2 meters, by periodically donating books I no longer use to the local library :)

    Covid: the shape of things to come

    In order to get a handle on the effectiveness of vaccines in preventing death, quoting percentages or absolute numbers is meaningless. To get an accurate picture, the per-capita rates of death of vaccinated and unvaccinated people need to be compared. As more and more people get vaccinated over...

    @Lars how many meters of bookshelf are taken up by your cookbooks? ;-)
