This is in general, not specific to anyone:

 

A reminder, we are all capable of doing our own searches on non-Klipsch related topics that interest us. So posts to "news" or scientific articles about this topic, especially this topic, should have something in addition to a bare headline and link. 

 

A short blurb about why the article was significant enough to the reader to share here. Why is it noteworthy?  

 

In this particular case, for many of us, knowing what CB thinks about something is usually always worth a read and needs nothing else.

Again the disconnect between what the feds think will work versus what in reality exists in the real world. We see this often when directives get set at the federal/state level which require strict adherence in the field. For example in all federal grants annual budgets are set and they are strict. The receiving group is expected to spend ‚ÄúX‚ÄĚ of $ annually. If they spend less they get penalized. The amount they did not spend is removed from their next years funding allotment. So what happens? Well as the fiscal year comes to a close groups audit their expenditures and go and spend whatever $$$ needed to meet their projected budget. Often they buy stuff they do not need just to meet the criteria. The grant system is not flexible and does not allow for modifications of expenditures. It is a waste.

 

So here we have covid19 vaccinations that come with federal directives dictating precisely how they are to be administered. If they cannot be used as directed they are to be disposed of, wasted. This is another reason why micromanaging is not always a grand idea.

ICU Nurse Says Careless Attitudes Around COVID-19 Are 'A Slap In The Face'

"I think if the public really wants to thank us, that they will start taking things seriously and just start wearing their masks and start social distancing," she says.

China continues to impede The WHO trying to investigate covid19 origins around Wuhan. Every effort by many countries to scientifically examine how covid19 jumped from bats to humans has been stopped by China. If there’s nothing to hide then why work so hard to keep it from being examined? As of today there are 2 million dead worldwide from covid19. That’s in just 1 years time and the pace is accelerating. The death toll here in America is not far from the number of Americans killed in world war 2. We have not experienced death on this scale since the 1918 influenza pandemic when we lost 675,000 souls. And modern China is essentially playing games regarding their part of this horrific life changing event.
