  1. I think it's very telling that the authorities have closed off the area to other hikers.  It's not a case of heat stroke, which considering the temperature that day, would have been an option.  They wouldn't have closed off the area for heatstroke.

    The California Department of Justice and sheriff's office workers are investigating the deaths, which are being handled as a hazmat and coroner investigation.

    “We know the family and friends of John and Ellen are desperate for answers, our team of Detectives are working round the clock," said Mariposa County Sheriff Jeremy Briese in a statement last week.

    "I've worked in different capacities but I’ve never seen a death like this," Briese told reporters.

    Autopsy unclear: Jonathan Gerrish, Ellen Chung, daughter Miju and dog die on California hiking trail - The Washington Post

    Gerrish was in a seated position with the baby and dog beside him, according to the Chronicle. Chung was a little farther up the hill.

    Authorities still don’t know how they died. Autopsies yielded no conclusive results about the cause, CNN reported. A toxicology report, which could take several weeks, is pending.

    A necropsy is being performed on Oski, the dog, but the Mariposa County Sheriff’s Office said no other animals were found dead in the immediate area.

    The Vaccinated Are Worried and Scientists Don’t Have Answers

    (Bloomberg) --

    Anecdotes tell us what the data can’t: Vaccinated people appear to be getting the coronavirus at a surprisingly high rate. But exactly how often isn’t clear, nor is it certain how likely they are to spread the virus to others. And now, there’s growing concern that vaccinated people may be more vulnerable to serious illness than previously thought.

  4. Tesla is actually going to make a 'Tesla Bot' humanoid robot for general purpose use - Electrek

    Tesla announced that it is actually going to make a humanoid robot, called Tesla Bot, and it will be able to grab your groceries for you and perform other menial tasks.

    No, it’s not a joke.

    At its “AI Day” today, Tesla released many details about its progress to develop AI technology to power its self-driving system.

    But as we expected, there was a “one more thing” moment, and it was robots.

    CEO Elon Musk announced that Tesla plans to build a humanoid robot called Tesla Bot.

  5. I am not going to accidentally post all of Ivanka Trump's tweets again (sorry about that 😄), but am still intrigued as to why someone so prominent and outspoken has not posted on their Facebook or their Twitter account since May 5th when they announced they were getting the second shot.  With the Afghanistan debacle, there are loads of comments from other members of the Trump family, but not a word from her.

    Eric Clapton refuses to play venues that require proof of vaccination

    Clapton says he won’t perform for a ‘discriminated audience’ after vaccination passports made mandatory for clubs and venues this autumn

    Eric Clapton has said he will not perform at any venues that require attendees to show proof of vaccination.

    In response to the government announcement that vaccination passports will be required to access nightclubs and venues by the end of September, the musician has issued a statement saying he would not play “any stage where there is a discriminated audience present.

     

    “Unless there is provision made for all people to attend, I reserve the right to cancel the show.”

    It does.  The amount of CEOs who stepped down in 2019 is astounding.

    (but Labour look like they will back Johnson - couldn't make it up....opposition?  What is that?!)

     

    Interesting paragraph at the end of the piece...

     

    Quote

    One MP said they had “no doubt” Johnson would insist on vaccine passports for the party’s conference, and that “as a result, it shouldn’t come as a surprise if a number of Conservative MPs and activists refuse to attend”.

     

  9. Can they fire you for not being vaccinated?  Yes, they can.

     

     

     

    Q: Let’s start with the biggest question here, and that is, can employers legally require their employees to be fully vaccinated before returning to the office, and is it lawful for employers to implement a penalty if they don’t comply?

    A: Yes, employers can legally require employees to be fully vaccinated with the caveat that they will have to provide a reasonable accommodation to those who cannot be vaccinated due to a disability or a sincerely held religious belief. In those circumstances, the employer is required under the law to engage in an interactive dialogue with the employee to determine if there is a reasonable accommodation that can be granted in lieu of full vaccination.

    As for a penalty, employers can adopt a mandatory vaccination policy and separate those who choose not to comply as long as those employers offer to reasonably accommodate employees who are not vaccinated because of a disability or sincerely held religious belief.

    So, provided you don’t have a disability and/or a strongly held religious belief, can a company rightfully penalize an employee for not getting vaccinated, including laying that employee off?

    Companies have the right to terminate employment based on an individual’s refusal to be vaccinated if the refusal is not based on a disability or sincerely held religious belief. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has issued guidance that permits mandatory vaccination policies—whether someone is vaccinated is not a protected category. To use a silly example, if an employer decides to mandate that its workers all wear green socks, that policy is lawful. Requiring the COVID-19 vaccine is like all other employer rules, i.e., “this is what we ask of our employees.” In the private sector, such a policy is permissible.

    I wonder if the vaccinated have noticed that the only people not being impacted by this current ‘wave’ are the unvaccinated?

     

    Virtually everyone I know either has ‘Covid’ or knows someone with ‘Covid’…. Well, except at my local boxing club - of which, 98% have rejected the poison.

     

    18 months into this 'pandemic' and I still know no-one. Not a single person, who has had the flu, never mind anything else.  And I live in a region apparently being ravaged by 'sky-rocketing' cases.

     

    I have yet to see a single person fall dead on the street and be attended by hazmat-clad pandemic clearance crews.

    imo the NHS staff shortages (through track and trace, test +ve, illness .. ) plus the 'overwhelmed' NHS will be used as an excuse to close all local hospitals except one. Leaving a single mega-covid hospital where staff will be corralled.

     

    the mild scandal of 'empty hospitals' of last year will be used also as reasoning to shutdown most hospitals.

     

     

     

    No staff shortages soon - the people who deal with the most vulnerable are to be made exempt from having to isolate from this deadly pandemic.  It's that dangerous that nurses and frontline staff don't have to isolate at all if they come in contact with a positive case.  But make sure you still wear your mask in Tesco.

    Instead of attacking angry mask people now I have a new strategy. I tell them to take off their mask and give me a hug. I think it freaks them out more. If they refuse you slowly walk towards them in a hug movement while making zombie noises. 

    My cousin operates a similar strategy, but hers is a sinister greeting of "Blessed be the Fruit" and "Under His Eye" to the masked Tesco doormen 😄  Gets great reactions from shoppers in earshot, who unfortunately remain masked. Tesco doormen remain unamused.  I am sure they sometimes wish they had a taser.

    Precisely,. In other words, there is no empirical evidence that the vaccines are safe (or otherwise) for pregnant women. More lies.

     

    Come to that, ...... for anyone, of course

    I posted something a while back about some high level exec in Feihe (infant milk formula company) about stocks plummeting because of expected drops in birth rates following the vaccine.  Link here:

  13. Bit of a coincidence that they assassinated the Haitian president...

     

    PORT-AU-PRINCE (BLOOMBERG) - Haiti, the poorest nation in the Western Hemisphere, has earned another grim distinction: It is the only one that has not vaccinated a single resident against Covid-19.

    One of a handful of nations worldwide still awaiting vaccines, Haiti was among the 92 poor and middle-income countries offered doses under the Covax facility. But the government initially declined AstraZeneca shots, citing side effects and widespread fears in the population.

    "Haiti did not reject the offer of vaccines from Covax," Haiti Ministry of Health General Director Dr Laure Adrien said in a telephone interview. "All we asked was that they change the vaccine they were providing us."

    My Mum popped into town this week. Wherever she went to (it'll be one of the major retailers, it involved shopping so I was only half listening lol) was giving away hand gel bottles at the tills & exits. She took them because they were free! Why would they do this? Do they know something we don't?

     

    They are giving them away where I work too. Can't be because they are passed their sell-by date as it is mainly alcohol.

    These dna harvesting tests are looking for something we don’t understand yet that is showing up in the jabs. 

    That's a very interesting point!

  16. Sajid Javid, the new health secretary, has told the House of Commons those who have received both doses of the vaccine will not have to self-isolate if they are a close contact of a new positive case of Covid from next month.

    At present, if you are told by NHS Test and Trace you are a close contact of someone who has tested positive for Covid you must enter 10 days of self-isolation, even if you have had both your jabs.

     
     

    But from 16 August, Mr Javid announced, the rules will change so that those who are fully vaccinated can continue their lives as normal even if they are logged as a close contact.

    Similarly, the rules will also be relaxed on the same date for those under the age of 18, who have not yet been offered the vaccine. They too will be freed from needing to self-isolate.

  17. Today's message is the complete opposite.  However, an interesting little sentence in there....

     

    Face masks to be personal choice after final lifting of restrictions, says UK minister

    Robert Jenrick, the UK’s communities secretary, suggested that coronavirus control measures in England such as the legal requirement to wear face coverings in enclosed public settings would be left up to personal choice after the final stage of the roadmap, giving weight to reports (see previous post) that a number of requirements are to be scrapped.

    The Conservative politician told Sky News’s Trevor Phillips on Sunday programme:

    Like many people, I want to get away from these restrictions as quickly as I possibly can and we don’t want them to stay in place for a day longer than is necessary.

    I think we are going to now move into a period where there won’t be legal restrictions, the state won’t be telling you what to do, but you will want to exercise a degree of personal responsibility and judgment – different people will come to different conclusions on things like masks, for example.

    “The prime minister will set out more detail on the national policy on some of those restrictions in the coming days. But there will be things we all definitely need to do – it will be essential that every adult gets fully vaccinated.

    1. Pressed on whether he would “get rid” of his mask after 19 July if permitted to do so, Jenrick said: “I will. I don’t particularly want to wear a mask. I don’t think a lot of people enjoy doing it.”
