    Coronavirus (COVID-19) Respiratory illness - Effect on Travel

    Denmark , Israel and the USA are already giving boosters. In ACT one mobile 80yo with high blood pressure and blood thinners was told she could not be vaccinated. One M obese and diabetic has already had 3 Pfizer doses. I am told the novovax will be reserved initially, for under 12yo's. These...

    Coronavirus (COVID-19) Respiratory illness - Effect on Travel

    Operations Research and Travel Covid booster economics. It is my opinion that Australians traveling overseas should get a booster before going OS. Is there a travel insurance actuary who can confirm this? With a minimum of 3 months since the last dose. Why? Because breakthrough infections are...

    Predictions of when international flights may resume/bans lifted

    Time for Australia's internationally disgraceful travel ban -need permission to leave is abolished. There are howls in the USA associating Australia with the likes of North Korea, and former Soviet block glory days. Can I say NO other country in the world did this. And we were misled when 70%...

    Qantas to fly Sydney-Delhi

    There is HUGE demand for SYD-> India seats. Most of the ICT Indians I know left Aus on whatever bucket fare, then caught MH or some other carrier back to their cities. So yes, QF can make hay while via SG or KUL/BKK is down.

    Dan Murphy's and Other Wine Deals

    Dan's Junk mail a targeted members deal- Drambuie 1lit $94 (was $80 before that) when 59 at First Choice, and I recently got some from Aldi for 52/53 dollars. If 9.4 100ml then $65.80 for 700 eq. I can tell you Drambie of Today is inferior, lower quality whiskey than 10 years ago - yes I have...

    Aus Digital Vax certificate has no AstaZenica batch numbers visible: currently a Qatar entry requirement for stopover.

    I agree B+W is far better, except the NSW one has a much higher density, and gives my budget $125 phone issues. The same phone has no problems with the ACT QR codes, not a bit. If you suspect it could be the app, someone should be testing this. The cost of a color print at Kmart or OfficeWorks...

    Aus Digital Vax certificate has no AstaZenica batch numbers visible: currently a Qatar entry requirement for stopover.

    The DESIGN and the gathering of REQUIREMENTS for ICT implementation has been woeful. Of course they want batch numbers, so that the trauma of finding breakthrough cases can be minimised should they get too many positives/forgeries from one nation. While here, the electronic chip in your...

    General COVID-19 Vaccine Discussion

    BBC debunks ivermectin by John Campbell. The takehome is it debunks nothing, and the opinion piece lacks references. Then there is a claim that people are being paid/employed to debunk IV (in another video). From 23:56 Japanese Research- Merck said it has no intention of starting clinical trials...

    General COVID-19 Vaccine Discussion

    Dang, I watch so little television nowadays, 19 minutes+ per hour ads is over the top. Anyway the ads are useless, preaching to those already vaccinated, redirecting lockdown anger to possible relief. All soft positive imagery. Failed to target those ethnic low income hotspots - or emphasize...

    Australian Reports of the Virus Spread

    If ACT hits 98% fully vaccinated mid December, how is ANY quarantine justified at all. There again ACT does not want international flights, because if it did, it would allow irregular charter flights. I wanted to visit Quatar Whale Sharks in April to Sept, because via WA is much more expensive...

    MH 777 missing - MH370 media statement

    The point of the investigation was that military radar, and downward looking satellite did NOT report what they saw, or even contribute to the elimination process. No one wanted to embarass anyone- when aviation growth looked positive. Did Jindalee OHR see any noise? Did anyone look? I know...

    ACT on track to 95%. Ku ring gai and most expensive harbourfront estate also hitting 90% plus. It may be politically incorrect, but if you can run run ads saying buckle up- don't be an idiot, surely we can do it for the jab. I see Sydney's rate dropping, while other states are in stroll out...

    General COVID-19 Vaccine Discussion

    Lets be fair, the vaccine peddler should had to be open and honest with side effects, not downplay them to the gutter, and not try to fool international experts. Those countries, like Israel, have a different set of high quality numbers - and are shocked. The numbers are teeny, and we know lots...

    Australian Reports of the Virus Spread

    On TV, reported National cabinet meetings cancelled., and Mr Barr and others reporting in meeting, not on agenda - deliveries aka lastminuteitis. That QLD will SMS people pathetically urging them to be vaccinated against covid. Hmm, should be done more widely. I re-read the NSW roadmap, and 80%...

    General COVID-19 Vaccine Discussion

    Does anyone critically read and understand these actual trial numbers and enrolled people. The PBS once did comparative analysis fairly well, and not falling for glossy drug brochure syndrome. When statins were first introduced, the drug rep proudly told the GP this lowers cholesterol. The Doc...

    Australian Reports of the Virus Spread

    In rural NSW rife -not checking in. The numbers on the app will support this - so enforcement is in the gutter. Bakery and Coffee shops are the worst. I see people stroll in and order first,(counter staff know damn well they did not check in) then pretend to fumble with their phones on the way...

    General COVID-19 Vaccine Discussion

    How to save lives. Now how would we get people to take notice? 1) Get people to print the barcodes at 5 times the size and 10 times the size. My camera phone cant read Woolworth's barcodes because they are lousy copies of copies. Same for Bakers Delight, as a very strong downlights interfere...

    Australian Reports of the Virus Spread

    My theory on Canberra is we have very good and sneaky W4D drivers and lots of fire trails. And I know there are some covid deniers in there as well. Just across the border, illegal shooters know the tricks. Many ex Melbourne people, so Melb cup day will be an.. event - or not because we will be...

    Australian Reports of the Virus Spread

    Despite chaos and lockdown fibs, the models are getting seriously better. The vaccination rate of 80% has also been shored up with 12-16yo's as a bonus. Mid January is now the danger point. NSW is wisely tipping / carving out Woolongong and other rule breakers based on fresh numbers, while...
