I like this part:
“It must stop,” Schumer wrote on Twitter, adding that he and Wyden were “exploring legislation to add Russia to existing laws denying foreign tax credits for taxes paid to North Korea & Syria.”
this is understand. there's no point is allowing putin to abuse people by taking over a company. Koch shouldn't benefit either
“Koch company Guardian Industries operates two glass manufacturing facilities in Russia that employ about 600 people. We have no other physical assets in Russia, and outside of Guardian, employ 15 individuals in the country. While Guardian’s business in Russia is a very small part of Koch, we will not walk away from our employees there or hand over these manufacturing facilities to the Russian government so it can operate and benefit from them (which is what the Wall Street Journal has reported they would do). Doing so would only put our employees there at greater risk and do more harm than good,” he wrote.
well, we have known for decades that the koch bros are money-grubbing scumbags, so, no surprise there
definitely stupid. I constantly see idiots who refuse to admit that most covid deaths are unvaccinated.
I'll never understand how some people can be so casual about a deadly virus
The world needs vaccinations for kids too.
agreed, even though there are idiot antivaxxers that think just because kids "seem" less likely to get sick and die that we shouldn't prevent them from getting infected.
I keep asking them what the number of kids dying is acceptable........... mine is ZERO
I'm also concerned that after an infection, years later will this virus spring a surprise?
Like chickenpox can result in shingles decades later. This virus is a bastard. Who wants to gamble with your children's health and future?
message from the Governor of NY:
I have some great news to share! Last night, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommended the Pfizer vaccine for kids age 5-11 and New York State's Clinical Advisory Task Force unanimously agreed with the CDC.
We have been preparing for this moment, working with pediatricians and other providers to help get shots administered so that we can protect our kids from COVID-19 and finally put an end to the pandemic. Many providers may be waiting for more in-depth clinical information before they begin providing shots to 5-11-year-olds, so be sure to check with your provider to see if they are currently administering the vaccine.
THE LATEST ON THE PFIZER VACCINE FOR KIDS. New York State is here to make it easy for kids to get vaccinated. A survey from schools across the state shows that nearly 400 districts intend to host a vaccination event! Parents: reach out to your pediatrician or other health care provider to see if they are currently administering vaccines to 5-11-year-olds.
SHARING THIS WEEK'S COVID TRENDS. As of November 2, 2021, there are 1,908 New Yorkers hospitalized with COVID-19. Our 7-day percentage positivity average was 2.22%, which is up from 2.11% last week.
Per the CDC as of November 3, 2021, 87.8% of adult New Yorkers have at least one vaccine dose. So far, 27,392,352 total vaccine doses have been administered, and 77,583 doses were administered over the past 24 hours.
Btw, I reinstalled 18.04 Ubuntu on my laptop. All went well.
I took a photo of some of the raspberries I grow
and then put them through some filters from an app one uses on a phone:
