Re: The Politics Thread

Biden cannot immediately fire Ellis however, as I understand it, he, at his discretion, can de-classify Ellis and re-assign him within the NSA. I'm certain Biden and Harris have been expecting this kind of nonsense and have a plans in place still, though, what a horsefeathering hot mess. I commend ...

Re: soccer soccer soccer

Hernán Losada is set to become the new head coach at DC United, apparently ( he was with Beerschot until today) I don't know how good a coach he is, but it's going to be a tough job. He was hired after 4 other candidates said no because they either wanted control over coaching staff choices or were...

Re: soccer soccer soccer

KRC Genk signs Mark McKenzie from Philadelphia Union. Any thoughts? Good player. Strong passer from the back, has some solid leadership qualities(he was the known leader of the US U-20 at the WC even with an injury), had interest from Brugge and Celtic. Thanks. Genk could be a good way in to Europe...

Re: CDC Info on COVID-19 (Corona virus)

anyone know how far off AZ might be from having results to report in the US (and subsequently an EUA here)? No idea - AZ/Oxford has had delays in its stage 3 trials, but the UK is in deep pandemic trouble and looking to authorize emergency use as early as next week according to The Telegraph: https...

Re: CDC Info on COVID-19 (Corona virus)

Is it annoying to anyone else that pretty much everyone in Congress is getting the vaccine right away? My dad hasn't seen any of his 6 kids since February, but because he's only in his 60s he is not top priority. But I saw that like AOC got the vaccine yesterday. I understand that part of this is t...

Re: CDC Info on COVID-19 (Corona virus)

The areas where they have been mostly seeing are also areas that haven't been hit as hard as other areas in the UK, so it's also difficult to tell at this point if this is a variant with a significantly increased transmission rate (which, again, is something that's been observed/theorized several t...

Maybe I haven't been paying closer enough attention, but if they're a new mutation of the virus in Britain? Just got a news alert saying theyre gonna shut down because of it maybe? Can these new mutations still be prevented with the vaccines. Here's what we know so far: 1) scientists have detected ...

Sorry for your loss, Tim.

EU timeline for approval of Pfizer/BioNTec vaccine has been shortened - approval expected on 12/21 now. The EU aims to have all member countries start their vaccine campaigns on the same day.

It's always bad when you get an email from work on a Sunday afternoon, but this one was particularly bad: a colleague from the IT department died from COVID-19 on Saturday.
He was a nice dude, always took time to explain stuff. :(
