  1. Ha ha perfect. Curiously if we look at the unexplained skipped greek letters Nu is an anagram for Un and Xi is an anagram for Ix which together is Unix. Bill Gates has some explaining to do.
  2. Good catch. The possibility of a dated story being updated didn't cross my mind. I had a deja vu'ish sense when these stories broke of a frightening new numbered variant and when a cursory search on B.1.1.529 turned up an article dated in July confirmation bias kicked in and I didn't look further. It doesn't help that once again folks from Imperial College London are prominently sounding the alarm generating for me a bit of fool me once, fool me twice disdain.
  3. Not that new, here's a story mentioning this variant from July... https://www.weforum.org/agenda/2021/07/how-scientists-detect-new-covid-19-variants/

    Vaccine risks, injury and related topics

    I see a silver lining. The mandatory vaccine fever appears to be spreading fast. In addition to Italy, Germany is also giving it serious consideration. France, Spain and the UK have partial mandates in place and could easily expand to full mandates too. Ties between Europe and South America are strong and with just a bit more luck Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay will follow Europe's lead. 2022 is shaping up to be our best shot ever for a FIFA World Cup! https://summit.news/2021/11/09/german-newspaper-highlights-unusually-large-number-of-soccer-players-who-have-collapsed-recently/

  6. https://www.mirror.co.uk/3am/celebrity-news/breaking-gurpareet-bains-dead-celebrity-25447378 The celebrity chef, whose cookbooks based on using the power of superfoods led to him having many famous fans, passed away from a heart attack.
  7. At least they are not as crazy as your neighbors... https://www.cnn.com/2021/11/14/europe/austria-lockdown-unvaccinated-intl/index.html The lockdown plan which was agreed in September called for unvaccinated Austrians to face a stay-at-home order once 30% of intensive-care beds are occupied by Covid-19 patients. Unvaccinated people are already excluded from entertainment venues, restaurants, hairdressers and other parts of public life in Austria.

  9. I use Tello which was a Sprint MVNO but now is T-Mobile after the merger. I was somewhat annoyed because I'm now paying about double for service from before. I used to spend $10 about every 6 months and now it is every 3 months. The prices actually didn't go up, still the same cost per text, minute or megabyte but they now require a purchase every 3 months if not on a monthly plan and $10 is the smallest recharge. The downside is I'm now using my phone a lot more to use up the extra service I'm paying for but don't really need.
  10. Do you know if diet is factored into the Rapa study? It wouldn't surprise me if Rapa's effects were different in dogs eating highly processed high carb commercial pet foods versus dogs eating low carb commercial pet foods and those eating non-commercial natural whole foods. Even if it was only observational diet data I'd expect there would be value in knowing what the dogs were eating. (EDIT) I broke my YouTube boycott and watched the video Mike posted. Thanks Mike, worth the time. And it sounds like the answer is yes, Matt's dog aging project is collecting extensive data including diet and feeding patterns. Rapa is only in a fraction of a larger cohort of a project with both observational and intervention components.
  11. We have reviewed many studies here where health bias might be a factor. They commonly show benefits of 10% to 20% for a limited number of outcomes such as a reduction in color cancer among those eating high fiber vegetables and less meat. But this study finds a 69% reduction in ALL CAUSE mortality for the Moderna vaccination. There is no known intervention, not caloric restriction with optimal nutrition, exercise, cold exposure, sauna, abstaining from alcohol and smoking or any supplement, medication or any other medical therapy that produces such a benefit. This is the miracle we have been waiting for!
  12. This could be the greatest advance ever for longevity: People vaccinated against Covid-19 less likely to die from any cause, study finds Perhaps getting all 3 vaccines will boost one to escape velocity!

    It mostly works for me, although being a contrarian I do the opposite of what they suggest.
