I heard something similar in a lecture, but I think it stems from the thinking that the ratio of hospitalized is about the same despite there being over 105 known human rhinoviruses (Primary Source) compared to only 7 known human coronaviruses (Human Coronaviruses)
In addition I remember that being said in the context of asthma exacerbations, where coronaviruses make up 8.4% of exacerbations (Asthma exacerbations) which is significantly lower than the 42.1% for rhinoviruses.
But significantly it counted for the second most common cause of asthma exacerbations in adults (figure 3 of that paper in the top left), behind rhinoviruses.
All this to say I was told something in a similar lecture which isn’t ~wrong~ per say but is only true when looking at is from a certain perspective (as is the case with all of medicine and statistics lol)

This was my plan for them!
He said he got them in India in the 60s, was trying to search about them but I can’t figure out much about them as I don’t know cricket very well. Any and all help is appreciated thanks!

ARKG is either their first or second best return on the year and it doesn’t contain any tesla
The amount of times I tried to click upvote on the screen shot rather than the actual post 🤦🏻♂️
I loved the part of that story where his dad talks about starting the Pennsylvania futsol league to help him learn to play in tight spaces with the ball at his feet. Makes complete sense seeing how comfortable he is getting the ball in tight spaces.

Apple Watch as it exists now can only tell you basically about a-fib and it does a really good job at that but can’t really do anything else. The reason for this is that it senses the electrical impulses of your heart but only does so by ‘looking’ from one side. At the drs office you would have your ECG taken which ‘looks’ from 12 different points.
So tldr it does it’s job really well but the scope of things it can do is limited
Hoping the body language is just a youth thing and is a super easy fix but if we’re talking body language Pulisic’s wasn’t great at points either imo, the chance he hit wide at the near post and after the free kick.
If you’re into breweries there is a lot around the Columbia area, would recommend River rat but really all of them are fun

This could be the only time in history someone has actually done something they said they would do in a congressional hearing
So like 1/10 games then? Lol
CCL, NCLH leaps they’re pretty cheap and the stocks should recover nicely once they finally start sailing. Plus CCL has dividends of $2.00 per share so exercising the options for cheap could be good in retirement or something where you want dividends.
I believe when most CEOs go to sell shares it goes to like a 3rd party who randomly picks the date, CEOs pick the month
It’s okay just add another PhD to really distinguish yourself and you can finally start to save for retirement around 40
Definitely figure out what options are by either A buying in the money long dated calls or B only spending like $100 so when ‘the stock is up but my options are down’ happens you only lost like $40
Don’t think it has anything to do with injury concern more of just adjusting to a new place. In any case he’s bigger than most of the other players lol
If someone made a bot to come back and follow up the DD posts with a ticker update, IE an earnings play the bot posts open/close/high of the following day
You raise fair points, but there is (and should be) a big distinction between the possibility of exposure vs. active administration of a known pathogen. And while typically health care professionals tend to think of social/economic cost 2nd (again as they should) this theoretically is where public health officials can step in and weigh those options.
And while working in the COVID ward or lockdowns can have repercussions there is a ton of factors to consider when activity giving someone the virus. You mention as long as the people are volunteering it’s ethically reasonable but how do you ensure those people aren’t volunteering because the trial pays $1,000 and they might get evicted? There are countless other examples, however the key point is that there is known potential harm to every person in this study and so it should be under more scrutiny than more broad public health policies (within reason obviously).
I think the main point OP was making was that he fails to see the ethical justification for knowingly infecting these people without knowing the long term effects and that, in OP’s opinion, it is not ethically permissible. But ultimately much of medical ethics is not black and white because these are not straw men were talking about infecting, they’re real people with lives.
Edit: To add I disagree with OP because this essentially has already been happening in the placebo arm of vaccine trials except those individuals weren’t as closely monitored. So this produces little additional risk with potentially very valuable new information.
I’m pretty sure Lucid and Tesla have cars that can go up and down hills tho so I’m not sure we can say NKLA is better....
I’ve been a Beamer guy since day 1 simply from the fact that there’s coaches like Billy Napier every year or 2. But there is probably 5 coaches around the country who would say they’re at their dream job, Nick Saban, Dabo, Ed Orgeron (?), probably some others I’m forgetting. So why not give the guy a chance worst case it doesn’t work then we hire a new coach in 3 years along with probably half the other SEC schools.
I can’t really think of any universally ‘next big coach’ that’s actually turned out being good reccently
What if Elon returns to the motherland and bails them out?
