  1. I am 110% pro vaccines. But the Astra-Zeneca obviously has risks that the Pfizer and Moderna do not. The 2nd person in Canada has just died from a A-Z vaccine caused VIIT blood clot. Both were healthy women in their 50's, one in Quebec, and now in Alberta. Plus quite a few more issues but not deaths. And numerous other deaths around the world from the A-Z. To the individuals who get the clots or die, the mass statistics, well, they don't really work well for them, do they? The current guidance / approach in Canada is one of individual risk assessment (Canada has all of these vaccines now, finally in somewhat decent supply, + has approved J&J now too) 1 - If you are in a high risk area and need to work or do a lot of activity around others, take the 1st vaccine you are offered. 2 - If you are retired or can work from home and stay otherwise isolated and safe, and you are more comfortable to wait for the MRNA vaccines from Pfizer / Moderna, then do that.

  3. Check Torrent Day if you have access to it, great site / service.
  4. From The Guad Reporter new edition:
  5. Why your 1st COVID-19 shot is more protective than you might think | CBC News
  6. Canada has / is a national across the board experiment in delaying 2nd doses to 3.5 to 4 months after jab #1. A behind-the-scenes look at why Canada delayed 2nd doses of COVID-19 vaccines | CBC News Time will tell....vamos a ver.
  7. Pfizer also will begin shipping from USA to Canada next week as well....finally! Kalamazoo is a lot closer than Belgium. But Belgian beer is better. 🙂
  8. Disagree, completely. Pfizer and Moderna would have already been shipping from US to both Mexico and Canada, but the US gov't blocked the exports to build a massive inventory, way more than the US needs or can even use, in either the short or long term. So the vaccines have had to come from Europe and other places when they could have come by a 2 hour drive from Kalamazoo Michingan. So that's "fine", but then don't whine when the borders stay closed since the people in those countries are not protected yet. Sharing = being good neighbours and is good for business too.
  9. And since the USA has decided not to "share", or even allow Pfizer plant to export to other countries (HEY JOE: C'mon Man!!) even though it has more in the pipeline / inventory than it can use and is using, Canada is using 4 months between jabs for all vaccines. It isn't a digital switch, 1 or 0, in fact there is some data showing a later 2nd dose can be just as effective, if not more so, than an earlier one. Time will tell.
  10. Your link is spelled wrong. What happens if second dose of COVID vaccine is delayed? | Miami Herald Is the correct one.
  11. Well....generally speaking, they don't HAVE pumps. Most local Mexican households of all types, allow the street pressure supply to fill their roof tinaco, and then that stores their water and gives them their gravity fed water supply in the house. That alone saves a lot of money and complexity. No aljibe, no pump. Works when there is no CFE, too. 😉
  12. It certainly did in almost all other places in the world. Significantly and definitively.
  13. Whose version of "history"? Your usually intelligent posts are way off the mark here, and if the majority of respected posters telling you that isn't sufficient, then that is most unfortunate.....there was no local value to starting and continuing this thread IMHO, the science behind masking is solid, it is proven, and saying or re-"tweeting" otherwise does all a dis-service.
  14. As do hookers and strippers. The point? 😉
  15. I already posted that in my post above, just worded differently than you.
  16. It's a lot easier to tear a paper bill.... Features: A special locking mechanism allows the outer ring and the core to stay locked together. This mechanism has been developed by the Royal Canadian Mint and is patented. The inner core of the coin can withstand up to 181 kilos of pressure, or about ten times the pressure the average human hand can exert. The coin has a unique electromagnetic signal which allows each coin to be accepted to rejected by coin accepting machines such as vending, parking, transit, and coin counting machines. The coin is made of pure alloy material and the manufacturing process requires specialized equipment. Since 2006, the bottom of the obverse side features the Mint Mark, which consists of an encircled design composed of a stylized maple leaf emerging from the letter M.
  17. Nice coin, like the reverse two tone of the Toonie in Canada. Two tone, 2 bucks. Time for the USA to get it going, feeding rumpled bills into a vending machine that spits them back half the time is so passe'. 😉
  18. 2 ways to look at this (or more, probably) Hotel now has 250, Guests have 30, and Bellhop has 20, so that totals 300. Or as this student of accounting does it:
  19. Can't handle virgo lady? So sad. Add mysogynistic to your long list of issues, apparently.
  20. Then why don't you post under your real name, Sr. Andy Panda blah blah blah? And no one cares what you "cotton to" or not.
  21. A 300 liter tank can last a year, if a home has a solar water heater. If I was building now, I would go smaller than that for sure, save $$, save space. Cooking and even gas dryers use very little in comparison.
  22. Yep, just ask anyone from Texas, great place to go during a power outage too. 🤣🤣
  23. Some good info here on variants and how they may avoid the immune response....stay safe everyone. Canada is losing the race between vaccines and variants as the 3rd wave worsens | CBC News

  25. Excerpt from Associated Press article in Globe & Mail: Britain recommends continued use of all vaccines after reports of 30 cases of blood clots linked to AstraZeneca shot - The Globe and Mail Britain’s medicines regulator has reported that 30 people who received the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine developed rare blood clots, up from five cases the agency disclosed last month. The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency said in an updated safety report issued late Thursday that out of 18.1 million vaccinations with the AstraZeneca jab, it had received a total of 22 reports of cerebral venous sinus thrombosis, a sometimes fatal condition that occurs when clots form in veins that drain blood from the brain. The MHRA said it had also received eight reports of other clotting events coupled with low platelets, which can lead to heavy bleeding. The MHRA said on Friday that of the 30 cases, there had been seven deaths. It had no similar reports from people who received the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, which has been used in about 11 million vaccinations. The MHRA concluded that “on the basis of this ongoing review, the benefits of the vaccines against COVID-19 continue to outweigh any risks.” It added that “all vaccines and medicines have some side effects. These side effects need to be continuously balanced against the expected benefits in preventing illness.” Not long after the MHRA’s report was released, the Dutch government said it was temporarily halting AstraZeneca coronavirus vaccinations for people under 60. Pharmacovigilance Centre Lareb, a Dutch organization that monitors vaccine side effects, said it had received five reports of blood clots and low blood platelet counts following vaccinations. All the cases occurred between seven and 10 days after the vaccinations and all the people affected were women between the ages of 25 and 65. The organization said in the period when the five cases were reported, some 400,000 people were vaccinated in the Netherlands with the AstraZeneca shot. Health Minister Hugo de Jonge says the temporary halt is a precautionary measure. “I think it is very important that the Dutch reports are also properly investigated,” Mr. De Jonge said. “We must err on the side of caution.”
