More bad news (potentially - data are still uncertain) - it's easier to link the BBC article.

Yeah they saying we have a few different variants here in the USA too and I will have to agree with @d-c-elington here in the USA there is about 3k people dying every day.... yeah the majority of the deaths are to older folks and people with underlying conditions but its still it's 3k a day regardless. We have the virus killing thousands and causing economic chaos everywhere.... will be interested in how we are going to get out of this spiral.

I doubt highly this is a naturally occurring virus and its a damn shame none of our countries are really trying to find out why and where it came from, I have a pretty good idea on where it came from 😉 just need to know why.

Stay safe everyone and take care of yourselves .... I don't need to be doing this to any of the pilots at the station....

Within China, it seems the airbrushing of Wuhan's role as the source of the pandemic is already well-advanced. The Chinese government is well-practiced at airbrushing history, the Tiananmen Square Massacre being a good example.

 

Going off at a tangent, one thing that worries me is that China will almost certainly be the first nation to colonise Mars, and perhaps the Moon too. Many years ago, a friend told me that the 21st century would belong to China - prophetic?

I would have to agree that China is definitely embracing technology quicker than the USA, even though its to spy on every move of their populous... but with this embracing of technology I think they will be the first country to really start heavily using crypto. We all know that money rules this planet and those with it rule over those without it.... all countries need to start taking more notice, especially when a country that is pulling ahead is one that suppresses its own people for personal gain.... I think the world is getting more toxic.

We have the news stating that China is going to have a positive GDP this year and already at 2%+ and most other countries economies are shit because of the virus.... makes ya wonder huh 🙂

Reds from the red planet.

Chinese have a plan and they are thinking in the 30 to 40 years ahead unlike western political leaders who only think in terms of the when the next election is.

Yeah it is a shocking really how quickly China went from 3rd world country to where they are now. What people need to think more about is how China is benefitting off this virus pandemic. I will admit China is great at squashing resistance to the CCP rule, just look how they quelled Hong Kong when they voted to take it back they came in and just took it and ended all that stuff. Breaking treaty agreements and the govt's of the world did nothing.... now China is eying Taiwan and since they received no resistance in HK I bet they might try for it especially during the current world crisis and maybe to test the new USA president. There is already news reports of China flying into their airspace on purpose.

Yep, they're testing the new administration, right enough. Their activities in the South China Sea, establishing military bases on tiny islands which several nations claim, worry me. That's another potential flashpoint, located on major shipping lanes too.

In the last 30 years the democracies have allowed big business to go into china and the Chinese's have been very cleaver in saying that they will let them make their goods cheaply in china, all they have to do is transfer their technology to china and anything they could not get that way they simply steal.

When they feel ready to take Taiwan, they will simply take it and will the world do anything about it, probably not.

100% right Pinback, all of our companies greed for profits have created a big problem. As we saw simply when the virus hit how our supply chains broke down and all the countries panic in how to get necessity item. I am afraid that Biden will not be hard enough on China.... all we can do is wait and see what all of the countries do to confront China? I did like how Australia was fighting back on the taxes and bands that China was doing to them.

Yes all of the Asian countries cannot really put up a fight to China's navy.... its the biggest Navy on the planet in quantity of ships/subs .... yeah their quality/tech may not equal a lot of the countries of the world.... but these Asian countries cannot match them and without the bigger countries of the world patrolling this area China could take it all very quickly actually.

The Vaccine - or how I learned to stop worrying and love the jab

Ten days after the jab, and I still feel normal - still human, still ugly! And apart from twenty-fours of utter exhaustion, no side effects. I have no urge to swing from the chandelier, no urge to climb trees - no untoward effects whatsoever. Oh wait [..........................] sorry about that, my wetware installed an update and had to reboot!

No, please... let me out! I'm safe, I promise... nothing wrong with me at all. I am normal! It's just this image I have in my mind... it's kinda blue, and there's a message. It says: "WinVac has encountered a problem and will have to close!" What can it....... ?
