This coronavirus in China
anyone else worried? 9 dead so far.

CNY soon so the virus will spread very quickly if they cannot control it. It'll be in Europe by the end of CNY if not earlier.

is this the end of humanity?

‘Illegal rave’ in Southend just pensioners queuing for jab

“It was really funny when the police arrived as they had been notified that there was a “rave” taking place at Saxon Hall - only to find 80 and 90 year-olds on wheelchairs, zimmer frames and walking sticks, patiently queueing for their vaccinations.

“Grumpy old men and grumpy old women were in abundance.

How many more months of this fucking madness

Terry Smith:

"There have been six identifiable pandemics over the past 130 years:

Recent Pandemics Estimated Deaths

Russian Flu (1889–90) 1m

Third Plague (1894–1922) 12m

Spanish Flu (1918–19) 50m

Asian Flu (1957–58) 2–5m

Hong Kong Flu (1968–69) 1–4m

Swine Flu (2009–10) 0.5m

We might be able to draw some parallels from these past pandemics as a guide for what may happen as a result of COVID.

One of the conclusions that you might draw from the economic effects of pandemics is that they do not so much cause new trends but rather they accelerate some existing trends.

The most obvious comparator — and one which people have most frequently alighted upon — is the Spanish Flu pandemic of 1918–19. The death toll of at least 50 million people caused a reduction in the workforce which may have been a factor in the subsequent widespread adoption of assembly line techniques for mass production. The assembly line was not invented as a result of the Spanish Flu pandemic — the Model T Ford was put on an assembly line in 1913 — but it accelerated its adoption.

The increase in productivity this delivered helped to fuel an economic boom as the cost of production of items such as cars and household electrical appliances were reduced as the volume of production rose so that they became affordable by the middle classes for the first time. This helped to fuel the economic and stock market boom of the Roaring Twenties.

Might something similar happen as a result of COVID? Obviously, I do not know, and fortunately my predictive capability is not the basis of our investment strategy. However, there are some clear signs that existing trends have been accelerated by COVID. For example:

Online working from remote locations using the cloud or distributed computing
Home cooking and food delivery
Online schooling and medicine
Social media and communications
Pets — which have become more important in isolation and when their owners are at home more
Automation and AI

The result is that many people have become more productive. Salespeople can visit many more clients if video conferencing is acceptable and at virtually no incremental cost. We receive reports of factories which we are told are operating with 50% staffing due to social distancing rules but which have more or less maintained production. I wonder what conclusion that leads to.

Of course not all businesses benefit from these developments. The airline industry, hospitality, bricks & mortar retailing and office property may all have some very difficult problems to face, just as you wouldn’t have wanted to have been a saddler when Henry Ford and his competitors hit their stride."

I've been aware of the approach of 5G since about 2006 when I was working in Jakarta throwing up a 3G network in Indonesia for the company that owns 3 in the UK.

Why do you insist on doing this? You're way out of your depth on everything you "discuss".

Coronavirus is not a cold in the same way you're not an Australian aborigine, despite both being human.

Re: This coronavirus in China
Answering my question about whether you're a liar or thick or both with yet another lie is not a good look Goldie.

It just confirms that you are indeed both thick and a liar.

That's probably the least of your worries too.

Advancing the discussion by pretending it either isn't happening or that they always knew it was happening after spending the past year pretending it isn't happening and it's all just a "conspiracy theory" to suggest otherwise.

All mainstream social media has the potential to be equally good and bad depending on who is writing what, the big media monopoly boosts the social engineering political activists [blue tick cunts]and shadowbans/censors the everyday normal folk you used to meet down the pub in real life [unwashed plebs] who sometimes breakout and irresponsibly post an interesting point of view that hasn't yet been deleted by globohomo big tech, yet.

The key was the content in this instance block, Sky News presented an interview with someone in authority like Patrick Vallance explaining how the vaccines, lockdowns and compliance wont end anytime soon.
Something you specifically were insisting yesterday wasn't happening. Which explains your reluctance to mention any aspect of what Vallance just said and just post "twitter" as though you had a point, which you didn't.

I'm not on twitter or BBC/Sky News FWIW, but have the ability to look at both now and again.

Maybe, did something particularly interesting occur then that needs discussion?
Are they still taking the knee before playing a game and waving rainbow flags about at an event that's looks to be a close approximation and modern interpretation of a sport we used to play called "football" but now more resembles a political social engineering/anti-racism pressure-group with a bit of sport occasionally involved?
Is the team with the best players in its squad likely to win this season?
Is the team with the weakest squad likely to get relegated?
Maybe on a more suitable football thread Tomsdad, if anything remotely interesting happens to compel me, I'll be there in a flash to discuss who could have played instead and done better.

Exciting stuff for the future, stay tuned and in the meantime please remember to keep a distance of 2 metres away at all times and cover your face up with a mask that used to only be synonymous with muggers, robbers and rapists taking away that stigma and now normalising it for future rapists/terrorists to roam about free from discrimination.
A victory for common sense!

Re: This coronavirus in China
Millions upon millions of people will buy into 5G for snob value and the ability to "look down" on 4G users alone.

Like the rush to social media and handing over all their personal data to strangers, they won't listen and only realise what they've lost though "buying better" far too late to do anything about it.

I've no beef with the technology, it's the muppets offering themselves up for control so easily I feel for.

I believe people in high circles probably believe we are in a long struggle with China over philosophies which are challenging our established ones. The general direction seems to be more commie than liberal free love democracies. Might be wrong of course.

Re: This coronavirus in China

You're pretty much on the money there.

The future of everything has already been committed to being interconnected, the internet of things - everything will be connected to everything.

The new building management systems that control the conditions of each new building will no longer have wires for 90% of their installation.

In order to have a generation of true renters (you will own nothing and be happy) there needs to be a huge wireless infrastructure in place, capable of carrying exponentially expanded packets of data in real time.

According to the innovation pipeline we look at in work, 5G is pretty much the first generation for IOT carriers, it will just put in place the new infrastructure, it will be obsolete and too slow within 5 years.

Why have you put something in quote marks and tried to attribute it to me, even though I haven't said anything of the sort?

Are you thick or a liar, or both?

It HAS to be one of those 3 things, Goldie there is no other explanation for your behaviour.

You choose which one it is, I've already made my mind up.

5G is not really aimed at individual phone users - it's something that will allow Uber to go driverless to save all those children called Abdul hoping for a career as a cab driver from swimming across the channel.

That's wonderful, Mike. I have a 5G phone and I don't have a 5G contract as there's fuck all coverage out in the sticks.

- No

*2.-* Can they reopen restaurants etc and everyone work normally?

- No

*3.-* Will I be resistant to covid?

- Maybe, but we don't know exactly, it probably won't stop you getting it

*4.-* At least I won't be contagious to others anymore?

- No. You can still pass it on, possibly, nobody knows.

*5.-* If we vaccinate all children, will school resume normally?

- No

*6.-* If I am vaccinated, can I stop social distancing?

- No

*7.-* If I am vaccinated, can I stop disinfecting my hands?

- No

*8.-* Will cinemas, theatres and stadiums, nightclubs be reopened thanks to vaccines?

- No

*9.-* Will the vaccinated be able to gather?

- No

*10.-* What is the real benefit of vaccination?

- The virus won't kill you.

*11.-* Are you sure it won't kill me?

- No

*12.-* If statistically the virus didn't kill me anyway ... Why would I get vaccinated?"

- To protect others.

*13.-* So if I get vaccinated, the others are 100% sure I'm not infecting them?
